DEDICATION - DR. WELLMAN DEDICATION - DR. EDGERLY lt was with genuine regret that we learned of Dr. VVellman's retirement. He is well known for his many years of teaching in New Rochelle. Since the school opened, he has not missed a day on account of illness. ln spite of a heavy schedule as head of the Social Studies Department, Dr. Wellman has sponsored the Current Events Club since IQZQ. Both he and his stu- dents have won many honors through its activities. In lQ52, George Keeler won the National Scholarship Current Events Contest. This year Fred Levy won two thousand dollars in a Comprehensive American His- tory test given by The Iournal r1W1l'I'I.l't1fl. Dr. Wellman has won many honors in the commu- nity as well as in the school. He is director of the Thomas Paine National Historical Society and Huguef not Historical Society, and has addressed groups in almost every church and club in our town. Our school has a lasting heritage that will ever remind us of his untiring efforts. They are the two pin oak trees planted on our front lawn by the Current livcnts Club on Arbor Day in 1938. The tree near the Hag pole commemorates the hundred and fiftieth annif versary of the adoption of the Constitution. while the other stands for the two hundred and fiftieth anniverf sary of the Huguenot settlement of New Rochelle. To Dr. VVellman, whose retirement will be deeply felt, we. the seniors of 1950. ufflh !Iif1C'f'I't' t1pprc'c'1't1lf0f1 dedicate our yearbook, Dr. Clifton T. lidgerly has been a familiar Figure in our school for twenty-four years, but after this month, he will no longer be here. for he plans to graduate with the senior class. Students entering New Rochelle High School are regaled with tales of the French teacher. Legend has built him up as an awe-inspiring figure to newcomers, since our students delight in frightening the under- classmen. But those who know Dr. Edgerly do not find him in the least terrifying. Dr. lidgerly has proved to be an understanding conf necting link between faculty and students. He was president of the New Rochelle Federation of Teachers, and served as a director of the New Rochelle Council for Unity. ln a never-ending fight against prejudice in our school, Dr. Edgerly has been sponsor of the Youth Interracial Club for three years. Students who were fortunate enough to be in his classes have found him to be a ready friend, regardless of his or her race, color or creed. Our good doctor is well known for his never-ending tight for tolerance in our school, and throughout our city. To Dr. lidgerly, whose greatest happiness comes from helping others, we, the class of 1950, with the deepest regret at losing him. respectfully and humbly dedicate this Rochellean.

Once transported to the mys- terious land of the East by shining word pictures we see a snake-like caravan travelling slowly across the blazing desert, sporadic patches of green with waving palms and refreshing pools of clear water, caves that yawn at the mere command of "Open Sesameng and wonderful multi-colored carpets capable of the impos- sible. Ah yes, we say, those were the days, when our most serious thoughts were of fantasies. Now we have no time for such things, for life has grown more complex. Little do we realize that we are living a one thou- sand and second tale which is far more fascinating than any in the past. This is a story which began in many places Where We, the youth of the town, left our homes in a far-reaching quest for knowledge of the world and its ways. We realized that the mere rubbing of a brass lamp might produce all sorts of wonders, but one must seek in order to find truth. Not all of us went along, for there were those who remained at home content with material security. And so the cara- van departed for places unknown. While journeying, the colorful caravan approached a flowering oasis, no longer a mirage. Over the course ALADDIN AND THE LAMP OF LEARNING W- of many years, learned people had stopped there. Eager to drink of the fountain of wisdom, the youths stayed on, and there, guided by the learned, many tribes of different classes lived, and played, and traded theories. Many strong bonds of friendship were forged during those early years. if if is Soon, however, there comes a time when decisions must be made and friends must part. Some, feeling strangely secure, will leave the group and settle down to ply their trade and make a place for future genera- tions. Others, still dissatisfied and thirsting for knowl- edge, will continue the flight. Perhaps you too, would like to meet the people of the caravan. Come, journey with us on the magic carpet as We visit familiar places and recall many happy days spent on the oasis. lust rub the wonderful lamp, and on the pages following you will relive with us the one thousand and second tale-a tale as yet unfinished .... For who knows what unforseen things the future holds? 'li SW if "Farewell to you and the youth I have spent with you.

Please walk inl Upon entering this oflice we are greeted by Mrs. Pedersen's warm smile. Proceeding we land a very busy but friendly man: our principal, Willis I. Thomson. Y-es, behind all the confusing mechanisms of our won- derful high school stands our principal, Mr. Thomson, who so many of us have found to be a wise counselor, an understanding teacher, and a sincere friend. VVhen we leave the school of the twin lakes, we leave more than a building filled with memories. We leave a living part of us here in the person of Mr. Thomson. Remaining at NRHS. while we go our separate ways. he will continue to give of himself and his ideals to the future classes of New Rochelle High School. MISS F. LORETTA COONS .-ilxxixmnt Pl'I'I7l'1.f7t1f MISS COONS Miss F. Loretta Coons. who has been our assistant principal since 1937, when she first came to New Ro- chelle High School, is as much a part of our school as the Tower and the Twin Lakes. Miss Coons if NRHS. Miss Coons has always presented a helping hand to all those in need of help and has succeeded in making all newcomers feel welcome and feel that they really are a part of our school. Miss Coons and our principal. Mr. Willis Thomson. form a team that is difficult to equal or excel for understanding, skill and a profound interest and regard for all high school students. VVe all owe Miss Coons a debt for making our high school days as pleasant and comfortable as possible. We strongly hope that Miss Coons will be associated with New Rochelle High School for many years to come. and that the association will be as happy and profitable as it has been for the past thirteen years.

"Oh Young to thee our loyalty is ever onward led . . ." How well do many of the class of '50 remember these noble words. lt was shortly after World War ll when we joined in the well-rounded student activities program at Young. All of us joined the S.O. one hun- dred per cent, cheered the football team "on to victory" and worked very hard to become a part of our new, friendly school. From that not too distant day we looked forward to that glorious day when as Seniors of the Round Table we would stage successful contests at the Shore Road castle. Led by Harry Moshier and Alice Arace the Fresh- man Class presented a very successful dance, 'KThe Fairyland Festival." The students participated in sports, extracurricular activities, won poetry prizes, and pre- pared interesting vocational booklets. As upperclassmen, guided by Al Katona, Alice Arace and Miss Theresa Kelly, we sponsored the g'Sophomore Splashf' Friendship Train Drive, and a thrilling movie, "One Million B.C." Many students distinguished them- CLASS HISTORY - A.L. Upon entering Albert Leonard in our sophomore year, there was the thrill of a new school, new friends and new teachers. We did our best at participating in the school concert, we worked hard making our dances a success. Grasping the school spirit of our upper class- men helped us feel we were a vital part of our new surroundings. As juniors we felt we had climbed high, onto the ladder of success. This was the year that marked the Iuniors, "Personality Dance," the elaborate fashion show, the Farewell Concert, and . . . the unforgettable "Iunior Prom." We could not believe that at long last we were tak- ing our places as seniors. We will always remain a little breathless at the magnificent performances staged by the "Tower Playersf' and the exciting events experi- enced through participation in the Cressey Hi-Y. Our senior year at New Rochelle has been a combination of all the exciting and unforgettable times witnessed throughout our school career. selves in sports, creative writing, class committ-ees and other activities. fTreasurers Richart Sturt, Genevieve Agnifilo, and Iudy Robinson were entrusted with the class dues.j The Iunior Year brought many favorable changes- some unexpected. The WIAA football championship, "Are You With It" fmystery dancej, Iunior Prom fprofrt 35.275, the arrival of class rings and the "Round- up" made this our most successful year. Remember the unewsletterw? Al Katona, Gertrude Erlenmaier, and Frances Borden, who was secretary for three years did a splendid job as class officers. Such skilled athletes as Biagio Fatone, Edwin Golden, Cornelius Lalli and Alan Levy distinguished themselves in football, while Norman Meyer and Phil Rella were outstanding in cross-country. Several students won literary awards, and many others did extremely well in other fields. Then came the news of our transfer to New Rochelle High School. Melvin Plotinsky, Ralph Gutmann, Mary Ann Erhard and Norman Meyer were elected to represent the class in formulating plans to make our senior year "the best in history." With all these mem- ories behind us we shall never forget those wonderful days at dear old I.E.Y. CLASS HISTORY - N.R.H.S. The "Lost Angels" of NRHS found themselves after the Hrst two weeks as freshmen and were determined to compete for honors in all school activities. We contributed our journalistic skill to the "Hugue- not Herald," for Richard Yaffa, and Bill Miller were "Kid-Bits" reporters, and Louis Rukeyser reported the class activities to the "Standard-Star." Helene Fried- land was the eight grade winner of the "One God" contest and Anita Holmsten won honors in the Na- tional High School Poetry Anthology Contest. William Gmelin displayed his talent in l'Harriet.l' Helene Friedland and George Murphy were elected secretary and treasurer respectively, and Leon Selig was Scrub Manager of the basketball team. The ninth grade started the year rolling with a traditional "Open House" in October and then elected Richard Yaffa and Alyce Kryla president and secretary respectively, as its officers. Sports proved to be a big success for both boys and girls. Intramural basketball, ping pong, and Coach Daniel P. O'Brien's Red Wing basketball team were extremely popular. Many of the boys also participated on the track team. The chief interests of the girls were ping pong, volley ball, and basketball. Ioyce Hiller was an outstanding member of the Girls' Basketball Honor Team. As sophomores we began to take our place as a prominent class and started active participation in school "goings-on." Dick Yaffa and George Murphy played football. Dick was elected our class president, Charles Cornell, vice-presidentg and Iudy Channel, secretary. Iohn Maffucci and George Murphy played basketball. Some of us played in the band and orches- trag some sang in the chorus, while others acted. At the end of our sophomore year we felt as if big things were ahead, and they were. In our junior year we were ably led by president Frank Hummell, vice-president Adele Derecktor, and secretary Iudy Channell. The brilliant cheering of Lois Rogers, Alexia Foster, Carol Chisholm, Ioan Fishstein, Adele Derecktor, Gail Cannon and Pat Andrew led Dick Yaffa, Phil Dopo- lous, George Murphy, Frank Bruno and Howard Sweet to a series of victories on the football field. On the literary side, Mary Fitzgerald and Herbert Green won honors in a National Poetry Contest. De- serving of honors were Bill Miller, Mary Laub, Alyce Kryla, Zelda Gafein, Louis Rukeyeser and Ellen Rosenwald who did excellent work on the Huguenot Herald. With this successful ear behind us, we were read Y Y to become " rfect seniorsf, Pe As we hesitantly strolled the cause-way last Septem- ber-some of us for the first time-all of our thoughts were the same. "This is it. Our last year." During previous high school years we had all had our full share of successes and failures, but in different schools. The task at hand was a hard one: to make one big spirit from three groups of students. Then as Seniors, we resolved that regardless of where we spent it, we'd make it the most wonderful year yet. - And we did!

In the VVestinghouse Science Talent Search we had fifteen honorable menf tions. an unprecedented event in this school.

With uncertain steps a friend stumbled up to me, mystified and confused. After I shook him a little in order to make some sense out of his incoherent mumblings, he related a truly wondrous, although somewhat doubtful, tale. It seems he had just picked up his senior ring, or a ring of some sort. Because he was low in funds, and since his next allowance wasn't due for some time, he had purchased Qfrom some characterj a reject for 50 per cent of its original value. CI did not think twice about the source of the ring because it was rumored that the G.O. was having trouble making ends meet.j After the purchase of the ring he turned away, and his mind lapsed into the usual rut of most seniors, such as: "Where can I find an exotic and unusual dance I can take my girl to and not be bounced with the ex- cuse, 'no minors allowed'?" Then he rubbed his hands in anguish and, by doing so, rubbed the newly acquired ring. In a blinding fiash and a cloud of smoke a massive Figure stood before him, and with a loud voice that echoed throughout the halls, he said: "What is thy will, Master?" My poor friend was in such a mental state that he blurted out the thought uppermost in his mind: "Where can I find an exotic and unusual dance I can take my girl to?" Without warning, the figure disappeared in a cloud of mist, droaning something about whirling witches, my friend vaguely recalled. I passed this off as a bad case of "WherecanIf-indan- exoticandunusualdancelcantakemygirltoitisn in its final stages. However, much to my amazement, the G. O. appointed a committee which soon produced the "Witches Whirl" on October 22nd, Amidst goblins and black cats, the students whirled round and round the eerie gym, frightened by the witches hidden in each corner. I was told the dampness and gloom was caused by the unhappy tears of the seniors. fTo think that I thought the roof had been leaking againlj When I saw my friend once more, he was in high spirits and he intimated that big things were being planned. I knew what he meant when I saw the post- ers advertising the "Teepee Twirl," which I attended on November 12th. That was quite a pow-pow. You could almost hear the strange Indian cries, flickering shadows suggested nearby teepees, and the squaws' dresses were as colorful as any Indian's! However, on close observation, the girls had an omniscient air. At this point I knew something was brewing, and my suspicions were confirmed when I ran into my old friend. He was in frightful shape, and as I eased him into a chair, I asked him what had happened. It seems that he had been waylaid by the fairer sex and they had gained possession of the magic ring. He fought bravely against the onslaught fat least that is what he saidj, but to no avail. QI can't reveal the names of the accosters for security reasons, namely mine.Q Following this incident I noticed posters with " ,go-'5o" printed on them. Curious as to their mean- ing, I made inquiries, later realizing it was foolish of me, but "ignorance is bliss," as the old saying goes. YEOOOOOOW, run for the hills! The male of the species is no longer safe, for the Rochellean is spon- soring a girls' stag! Sure enough, the dance was held on December Ioth. Mr. Donald K. Phillips, Supt. of Schools, crowned Eddie Golden and Iudy Channell King and Queen, and Dick Yaffa and Lois Rogers Prince and Princess, by popular vote. Following this event everybody was satisfied in a rather fiendish fashion. When things cooled down a bit and the ring again came into the possession of the proper authorities, events moved with smoothness and sanity. Thereupon the "Winter Proml' was planned with "Lost in the Stars" as its theme. The prom was held on Ianuary 26th, the week following midyears: it came as a pleasant relief and was a tremendous success. The "slave of the ring" then worked on the biggest event of out school career, the Senior Prom!

Crahain McGill. Mary Ann lirhard. and Geraldine Socrates were chosen to reign over the royal staff and oversee all of the general work. Grand Vizier Barbara Packer with her assistants. Roxanne Roth and Ralph Cutinann, managed the literary end of the court chronicles. checking the varil ous assignments. Headed by Miss Anna Hartnett and Chancellors of the Exchequer Gaye Cross and Victor liarle. the business staff did the necessary footwork and applied its talent for salesmanship in securing the advertise- ments. besides handling the difficult monetary iobs. The Royal Artists, directed by Miss Dorothy Parr and guided by Chief Designer Donald Smith. turned out very excellent work in decorating and illustrating this book. Chief Film Recorders William Cinelin and Stewart Schoen. assisted by their staff. snapped the shutter for most of the informal pictures, besides doing the layouts for the montages. Much credit is due to contributors liarbara Davies. Anne Schulley, Phyllis Brause, Catherine Cakouros. Iohn Cronson, Nancy Dirkse, and Pat Finnegan, who toiled long and faithfully to hand in their assignments. Many thanks also go to all of those people who helped with the formulation of this book. and without whose magnificent cooperation, the RoeiiiaLi.mN could not have been completed. All in all. it was a very interesting and enjoyable year to everyone concerned with the royal chronicles-one which will never be forgotten. CIHELLEAN Acravnfnes OFFICERS General Organization The General Organization is the most important student organization in the school. This year it has up- held its line record in making school life more interest- ing to the student. Many assembly programs, contests and interscholastic sports were supervised by the G.O. Each spring officers are elected to serve the following year and in the fall two representatives from each homeroom are elected, to complete the governing body of the school. This year, because of the consolidation of Isaac E. Young, New Rochelle and Albert Leonard High Schools our executive departments were headed by three presidents: Al Katona, Dick Yaffa and Ed Iustice. The vice-presidents were Iesse Arnelle and Alice Arace. Our records were kept intact by our two competent secretaries, Adele Derecktor and Frances Borden. ln the position of treasurer was Iudy Robin- son, who supervised our expenditures. Under the cap- able leadership of this slate of ollicers, our school calendar functioned smoothly. The first major job of the G.O. was to launch a suc- cessful G.O. Drive. Each student was urged to pur- chase a G.O. membership which would admit him to home football and basketball games, entitle him to the Herald and give him a reduction on Tower Player Productions among numerous other things. A mark of about 850 was realized. As a tribute to our football team, the "Witches' Whirlu was presented under the co-chairmanship of Genevieve Agnifilo and Helene Friedland. Next a suc- cessful magazine drive was supported by both students and faculty. Looking back we see that a year of interesting events and memorable occasions has passed. We hope the General Organizations in years to come can be as proud of their achievements as we are of ours. 1-QLliC'I'IONS lid Iuslicc Dick Yufla .-Xl Kutona Adele Derccklor Helene Fricdlnml loam Fishstcin O.

The aim of the society is to raise the standards of secondary schools by setting up a goal toward which students may work to achieve the honor and prestige that accompanies its member- ship. Under the capable direction of Miss Florence Errant, the National Honor Society entered into its Fifth year at New Rochelle High School. At the elections in November, Graham McGill was elected president, Frank Hummel, vice-president, and Alice Kryla, secre- tary. A special committee led the induction ceremony for new members in june. This year members-elect had to attain at least an eighty-Five average-a decrease from the eighty-seven and one half average of last year. Prospective members were chosen on the basis of scholarship, character, leadership, and service-the four guide words of the society. Members for the year 1949-1950 include: Anderson, Margaret Brunner, Lilli Arace, Alice Cakouros, Catherine Barry, Barbara Carson, Gladys Beatson, Thomas Cassara, Marie Boyle, Margery Channell, Iudy HONOR SOCIETY Ciardullo, Dominick Hunt, Lorraine Coleman, Lucille Connolly, Evelyn Contrata, Cecelia Cronson, Iohn Demby, Susan Dirkse, Nancy Dolcetto, Victor Iackson, Shola Iacobs, Alan Kryla, Alice Laub, Mary Ellen Lehmeier, Franklin Levy, Fred Levy, Iames Donnelly, Mary Clair Litt, Michael Eder, Robert Emerson, Lester Logan, Mary Marsden, George Erlenmaier, Gertrude McGill, Graham Felsenthal, Peter Fishstein, Ioan Friedland, Helene Fuhrer, Iames Garfein, Zelda Geier, Kenneth Green, Barbara Girsdansky, Michael Gmelin, William Gutmann, Ralph Holmsten, Anita Hummel, Frank McCulloch, Helen Mendes, Carol Miller, WVilliam Rende, Frances Robinson, Iudy Rosenwald, Ellen Roth, Roxanne Rubin, Lawrence Rukeyser, Louis Saleh, Thomas Schaefer, Eleanor Schoffer, Eleanor Schwartz, Arthur Taitt, Gloria Tappert, William Toma, Salvatore Ubaldi, Alena Vallelonga, Iosephine Moscowitz, Deborah Van Buren, Alfred Mottarella, Elia Mueller, George Nardelli, Ann Packer, Barbara Parkinson, Roger Plotinsky, Melvin Quarles, Luther Randall, Ioyce Villaume, Gerard Wefer, Donald Weitzman, Leonard Winkler, Margaret Wood, Charles Woodard, William Yaffa, Dick 4 THE SCHOLARSHIP CLUB The lamp of knowledge shines brilliantly in our school. For proof of this we need only look at the large membership of the Scholarship Club. Capably led by Miss O'Reilly, faculty advisorg Wil- liam Miller. president: Michael Litt, vice-president: and Alyce Kryla. secretary. the Scholarship Club aimed to encourage higher grades among all the students in the school. Because this is strictly an honorary organization, any student was eligible for membership. However. mem- bership certilicates were awarded only to those students who qualified twice during the hrst three marking periods of the year. VVhen Aladdin rubbed his magic lamp a genit- sprang forth. lt is our hopes that the genie of this lamp of knowledge will lead the students of New Rochelle High School toward even higher scholastic achieve- ments than ever before.

'K GRCHESTR y - ,....N..i-..J..,...,....,a, Once again, guided by the deft movements ol Mr. Haigh's baton, the New Rochelle High School Orches- tra completed a year ol incomparable performances. lt opened its program lor the year by playing in the Nlusic Clinic at the VVestchester County Center under the leadership of Professor Church. From this mem- orable event, a valuable experience was gained. ln harmony with the melodious tones furnished in the orchestra went a benevolent spirit. The orchestra. together with the other branches ol' the instrumental department, gave a Christlnas program in order to liulhll .t pledge made to furnish a room in the New Rochelle Hospital. The orchestra also did a marvelous job in helping to send both the faculty and the student body home in high spirits for the Christmas season. It played the traditional Christmas carols and lrying l3erlin's great hit, "VVhite Christmas." The orchestra went on with other activities. To test its talented members it entered the .Xnnual Contest, and the results were remarkable. The festive Spring Concert was the last exhibition of its line work. Many who are saying goodhbye to Mr. llaigh and their fellow musicians ol' the orchestra loolc back with well-earned pride. Others are looking forward to other full and successful years as members of the New Ro- chelle High School Orchestra. i If 1. ,ax J W 0' QLD I 2.

The first and most important thing they did was to elect Iesse Ar- nelle, president: Barbara Dillon, vicespresidentz Geralf dine O'Neill, secretary: and Eleanor Horgelt. treasurer. lust in time to help Mr. Amonson mold his Champion- ship Team were such stars as Iesse Arnelle lwho re- ceived a third team all county berthj. lack Mayers. Herb White, and Andy Flockhart. Other sports had their magic-makers: some of these were Dan Gerber- ding. Peter Knoke, Robert Briskie, Iim Tarentino. Dick Chapin, Skippy Casiraghi. In the way ol social life. the Iuniors were no sleepers. They pitched in and gave a very successful dance. L'Delirium," on February II, under the sponsorship of Miss Sylva Kunce. Then of course, the never-to-be forgotten Iunior Prom took place. amid soft lights, music, and the rustle of formals. The junior Class was right on the spot in many of the outside activities. bringing honor to the school. The junior girls were represented on all the honor teams and the cheerleading squad was mainly composed of them. The Huguenot Herald also had its share of iun- ior members, while the Social Service Club boasted many of them. Another important milestone for the class was the arrival of the long-awaited rings. Without the aid of the genie and the lamp, the Iuniors had an inspiring and memorable year. Next year will be even more sol THE SOPHOMORES The sophomore class. not to be outdone, entered wholeheartedly into all activities and all phases of school lite. Capably led by Donald Zaccagnino. Ross VVebber. Mary Lou Foradora and Carlo LaPera- president. vice-president, secretary, and treasurer re- spectively. the class of '52's main social shindig was the sophomore dance. HDeep Purple."

Dick Bartels and Roger Parkinson. the 1949 O'Hrienmen won the VVIAA championship. On Saturdays these hoys. together with Roherts. liufemio. Duarte. Razor, Darden, Duarte. Gillman, Garland and co-captain Yilaume. ran interscholastic meets at Van Cortlandt Park in New York City. Com- peting with one thousand runners at one time. the team placed second in the Man- hattan sponsored meet. This merited them a trophy and individual medals. The squad also placed sixth and seventh at consecu- tive meets sponsored hy City College and Fordham U. Another squad of runners. Hirsch, Arnold. Mueller. Freundlich, Williams, Smith, lflirien. and lones comprised part of th-e team which placed second in a tri- angular meet with Roosevelt til and Ma- maroneck tgl. Running as a single squad, the team lost to Gorton 28-27. leaped ahead of lona 32-33. topped Davis 18-37 and placed sec, ond in the N. Y. State Section One Meet. Special honors go to Ierry Utter who lim- ished first in all VVestchester meets. THE SWIMMING TEAM Spearheaded hy Skip Casiraghi. cokcap- tain VValt Lelller and Iack Mayers. New Rochelle High's 1949-io swimming team coasted through nine meets. losing only to Greenwich, won the VV.l.A.A. crown. and cstahlished itself as the finest in the history ol' the school. Coached hy lohn A. Keller and managed hy Pete Felsenthal. the Purf ple Mermen swamped A. li. Davis twice. and lona. Peekskill High. Hackley. Peek- skill Military Academy, Mamaroneck. and Yonkers once apiece. Both l.etller and Mayers consistently undercut the county swimming marks in their specialties-Letller in the 220-yilfil tree style. and Mayers in the hack stroke. Casiraghi was untouched in the diving competitions. Slayers was easily the most versatile swimmer on the Huguenot ros- ter. as he seemed equally at home in the hack stroke. the hreast stroke. or at any tree stvle . . . . distance. l.elller and Lasiraghi also swam on the crack relay squads. Frank Hummel. co-captain Boh Rivers and lid Meyers were all out-standing at the go-yard distance: Pete Knoke heat nearly everyhody hut Maycrs in the hreast stroke: Stu NVeiss stood out hoth as a hack stroker and in the zoo: Dan Gerherding was a line hack stroker and relay tnan: Ronnie Rasmussen could place in hoth the sprinls and the diving: and lielix "Buster" Grossman and Dick McPhee were tops in the too. Basketball The Purple cagers won thirteen consecutive games. taking their initial class to heart and retaining their spirit ol' vengeance throughout the season. They set two new League records. coping with W.l.A.A. title and Class A championship. and hnally linishing with a season score ol' fifteen wins and three losses. Hy amassing a total ol' 333 points, the squad set a oi.: olliensive average which also replaced an older mark. Only 31.1 points were notched against them. the l.eague's best defensive score. lesse ,Xrnelle now holds two seasonal records. the W.l..X..X. and N.R.H.S regular season marks. Both ol' these were previously held by lid Miller, who graduated from New Rochelle two years ago. The team, paced by Chick Cornell's infallible one- handers: by the consistent set shooting and unparal- leled floorwork ol' Dick Cfllrien. Mike Circelli.

TENNIS - IQ50 PROSPECTS According to Sid Singer. the captain of the team. the most popular sport in New Rochelle High School should he tennis. His opinion seems to he upheld by such experts as Benson Green. Alan Rattner, David Gavrin, Leon Selig, Fyfe Dollar. Biagio Fatone, Seraf lino Amaroso, Patil Sherman, Edward Mank. Bruce Schumaker, Geoffry Lehhar. Clayton Coots, Felix Grossman. Armen Proudian, Orison MacPherson, and Harris Freedman. This year the team will play lona, Mamaroneck, A. B. Davis, Roosevelt. Gorton. Rye, and White Plains. Everybody is vehy optimistic about the team and coach Louis Amonson says that we'll win them all. ya A iw' Mm V+ I QM - f-I BASEBALL Inspired by the showing turned in by other NRHS teams, and determined to fare equally well, coach Keller's wielders of horsehide and hickory emerged from a winter of hibernation, in quest of a W.l.A.A. crown. Whether they will make it is not known right now, but it seems that they can't miss. The Huguenots opened their season by dropping a close one to Yonkers Central, 5-4, in extra innings. Sal Caporale and Bob Kraft turned in excellent pitch- ing performances, but they were the victims of bad breaks and loose fielding. In the only other game played before our deadline, New Rochelle came from behind to nose out a power- ful Mamaroneck aggregation by the score of 4-3, be- hind the strong pitching of Sal Caporale. Long-ball hitting Walter Green is the team's regular first baseman. Second base seems to have been clinched by Bruno Pisani. Phil Cavallero is shortstop. while hockey star 'fBabe" King cavorts around the hot corner, and bats in the clean-up position. First string subs in the infield include Ioe Katz and Iohn Bennevento. The outfield shapes up with three-letter men at two positions, namely Eddie Golden in left, and Captain George Murphy in center. Right field is an open prop- osition so far, with Dick Chapin and Ronnie Brown alternating. Basketball heroes Mike Circelli and lohn "Moo Moo" Maffucci are the catchers, while the pitch- ing is ably handled by Sal Caporale, Bob Kraft. Don- nie Zack and Harry Haigh. The team has plenty of spirit, and with the ablc coaching of Mr. Keller, we feel certain they will gain another W.I.A.A. championship. Villa.. V 1 TRACK Paced by Captain Lou lones, Dick Yaffa, Roger Parkinson, Iesse Arnellc and Robert Roberts, New Rochelle High perhaps had the greatest track team the school will ever see. Coach Dan O'Brien deserves to be proud of his history-making squad. A Parkinson, Roberts, Yalla, Iones, Combo walked away with the Eastern State Championship mile relay title at Seton Hall, New Ierscy, leaving behind them a new meet record of 3:30. The next day. an Arnelle, Roberts, Iones, Yaffa squad ran off with the two-mile relay Eastern State Championship, loping 2.4 seconds off the old record, hitting an amazing 8:17. At the Penn relays, the following week, this same team, concentrating all their power on the mile relay, ran the second fastest relay ever recorded by a high school in the long history of Philadelphia's ancient meets, with a time of 3:2-3.1. Saturday. May 13, Lou Iones ran an exceptional quarter at Rye, N. Y. to set a new meet record of -30.2 seconds. He beat teammate Roger Parkinson, linishing second under 52 seconds. Dick Yaifa, who rose from his sick bed to clinch the middle distance supremacy, added another lirst. Ed Benedetto and Ed Cirillo, finishing third and fourth in the hundred, joined Perry Smith and Herb White to place second in the 880 yard relay. Bob Barclay's fourth in the high jump was o-ur only tally in the field events. The following week, the N.R.H.S. squad Walked off with their 12th W.l.A.A. title cleaning up with a record total of 76 points.j With Benedetto's double win in the hundred and two-twenty, lones' and YatTa's reliable firsts in their specialties, firsts in the mile and medley relays, Barclays first in the high jump, Utter's in the mile, plus considerable depth, we were able to attain a 30 point scoring margin, the team's special way of saluting Dan O'Brien for his 30 years of service. It is with great respect and with realization of gruelling hours of practice which were needed to attain this unparalleled record, that we hail these boys as "the greatest track team New Rochelle ever had." RIFLE TEAM Because ol' the rearrangement ol the local public high-schools. New Rochelle High added to its list ol' activities a rirle team, which was sponsored and coached by Mr. Robert F. Farndon and Mr. Roland R. Hintz. New Rochelle lost only to Roosevelt by a close margin of three points alter they had defeated the latter by the same margin in a previous match. New Rochelle also had no trouble in defeating A. li. Davis whose teams in the past have been excellent. "Buster" Emerson, a rilie team letter-inan of last year, was chosen as this year's captain with Fred Guida taking over the allkimportant I'llllgC-OECCITS position. Many new recruits were chosen to make up the team. l.ester "Buster" Emerson, Fred Guida, Iohn Adams. Norman VVyner, Ceorge Barker, lames Serphos. Stew- art Schoen. VVilliam Hunt. Don Gilbert. Phil Goldman. Andrew Roltisen, and Don Cross actively participated in one or more matches. Those who placed in nine matches this season received their letters.

INTRAMURALS Over two hundred boys participated in this year's intra-mural basketball games. Twenty teams were divid-ed into two leagues, the Midwestern and South- ern Conferences. In the Southern Conference, Mary- land romped through the season beating all contend- ers in the league. with Tennessee and North Carolina providing only a little resistance. In the Midwestern league, Minnesota and Michigan fought to the finish with unblemished records behind Michigan's high- scoring average of 58,0 points per game and Minnesota's low defensive average of 18,9 points per game. Both of these averages were the best offensive and defensive team records in either league. ln the post-season play-off, Min- nesota upset a highly favored Mich- igan team by coming from way be- hind to win the game 34 to 31, and the league championship. All was then ready for the big game between the winners of both leagues. Maryland and Minnesota. Maryland's scoring threats were in the persons of Dom Norberto fcom- bined leagueis high scorer with ISO points and an amazing 21.4 average per gamel. Edwin Stanton, and Bill Lalli. Un the other hand. Minne- sota's hopes were pinned on the con- sistent shooting of lim Secor and Phil Rella. and the height advantage of Victor Earle and Harvey Coates. VVhen the game got under way, Minnesota's control of the back- boards and good shooting by all members of the team opened a 29- point margin after the second half had started. Although Maryland put on a last period rally. they couldn't come close enough and Minnesota won. 5-3 to 46. Other high scorers in the Midwes- tern League were Godfrey Lebhar cII2il and Donald Nunes Mooj. ln the Southern League lid Carolina and Ross Webber were high scorers.

A. A. On February 21 of this year, the G.A.A., the Girls' Athletic Association, once again took up its duties as the head of girls' sports. Its program consisted of a wide variety of activities which could occupy the after- noon hours of any girl who was interested. The agenda was divided into four separate units: the fall session. two winter sessions, and the spring session. Each sport, such as paddle tennis, basketball, volleyball, and softball. was under the direction of a chairman of the Board of the G.A.A. It was the duty of each chair- man to see that her respective activity ran smoothly and to tabulate the points each girl received for participating. From these groups various honor teams were chosen. These teams were in two sections, the class teams or the school teams: the class sections played interclass games, while the school sections represented NRI-IS in inter- scholastic competition. Each team was under the direc- tion of one of the three physical education teachers, Miss Zelda Maslin, Miss Rita Rogers or Miss Anne M. Uglum. After the sports calendar was finished, each girl. who had accumulated enough points over a period of time, received a letterg also, each girl on the honor teams received a letter. These were given out at an "award" assembly at the end of the year. The othcers and chairmen were: PI't'XI.dl'l1f - Ioyce Hiller ljfftf'-Pl't'5l'dl'l1f - Marion Scott SC'C'I'C'fcFl'y - Mary Ann Oehrlein SPORTS CHAIRMHN Archery .,.. . . . ,.,. . .

Victories were achieved in the Mamaroneck, Whitt' Plains and Iona games where the respective scores of 18-6, rg-6. and IX-6, illustrate wide scoring margins. Traveling to Peekskill, the squad won 1947 as Baker. Martin, and Cakouros scored touchdowns. Davis upset our winning streak with a safety, making the score 8-6. The Iayvees worked the T, single wing and double wing formations against the Varsity. during practice. This aided the Varsity in winning their games. Starters in the backlitld were Anderson, Brown. DiSanti. and Harrison. On the line Holland, Iackson. Hinkle, Ramaglia. Pierrot and Torian demonstrated their agility. Other players: Chandler. DeMarco, Schnall. Weber, McCabe, Lewis, Pride.

This was a fateful day, for on this day a great explosion took place, one which rocked the earth out of its orbit and set it back 2000 years. Five years later in Bagdad, where civilization was beginning to stir once more, most people had re- covered from the shock and had resumed a normal life. One day Frank Bruno, who was just recovering, suddenly awakened and demanded that he be shown through the city. He summoned two guides, Alan Levy and Gerard Villaume, to show him the way to the Sultan's palace. They came upon a group of trav- elling players who were also going to the palace. The leader of the group was Howard Sweet. As they passed through the market-place they saw many strange and mysterious things. To the right stood Moo-Moo Maffuci juggling basketballs with "Chick" Cornell. Further on Frank saw Margot Baum charming snakes with the magic tones of her clarinet. Next to her, on a soapbox, stood Mel Plotinsky and lim Levy selling their ideas to the public. Passing an oriental art shop, they were attracted by the beautiful paintings of Doris Lee and Barry O'Neill. When they heard a familiar strain, they turned around and noticed Ioan Matthews, Margie Bright, and Tom McGoey harmonizing. Finally Frank and his guides reached the palace gates and gained the permission of the sultan's guards, Ed Golden and Lou Iones, to enter into the palace court. The ladies of the court were enthusiastically engaged in a game of "Canasta." At the table sat Iean Plebani, Guerry Kennedy, Pat Rooney, and Genevieve Agnililo chatting wittily about the daily happenings in the Kingdom. Frank and the guides walked up to the palace door, saluted the sentinels, Ralph Guttman and Leon Selig, and entered. What a marvel of beauty displayed itself before their very eyes! The architecture of the room was of unusual calibre, and the guides explained that it was the work of Graham McGill and Peter Felsen- thal. Beautiful tapestries, designed by Don Smith, Barbara Diamond, Roy Secor, and Bob Straub, adorn- ed the walls. The glittering chandeliers reflected the beautiful colors in the dancers' gowns. Gliding grace- fully across the stage set up at the far end of the room were Grace Curtis and Patti Walsh, assisted by a bevy of beautiful girls, Adele Derektor, Lois Rogers, Carol Chisholm, and Iudy Channel. An oriental orchestra was playing soft music, accompanied by the great singer Cecilia Contrata. Debbie Moskowitz and Bill Slater were regaling the audience with piano rhap- sodies. Suddenly, the golden tones of Mary Wolf's trum- pet announced the beginning of the evening's enter- tainment, which was to be provided by the travelling players. The play starred Sue Demby and Al Van Buren, very aptly supported by Zelda Garfein, Dot White, Barbara Davies, Billy Gmelin, and Charles Santoro. Very absorbed by the play, Frank almost missed the grand entrance of the great Sultan, who was noted for having three heads. What a surprise greeted our hero when he discovered that they looked very much like our own Yaffa, Katona, and Iustice. The Sultan was followed by his sensational court ma- gicians, Fred Levy and Dan Kleppner, who were casu- ally creating miracles as they entered. Frank noticed other court celebrities, writers Mary Ann Erhard, Bill Miller, and Catherine Cakourus, scientists Alyce Kryla and Iudy Robinson, linguists Nancy Dirkse, Alice Arace, and Trudi Erlenmeier, and three of the Sultanis favorite wives, Delphine Geronimo, Helene Friedland, and Rose Merril. Finding Court life to his liking, Frank obtained a job as bodyguard to the Sultan and lived happily ever after in the city of Bagdad. Sept. 8 Sept Sept. 28 Oct. Oct. Oct. Nov Nov Nov Nov.
