New Rochelle High School, New Rochelle, N. Y.
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.

How many of us have at one time or another been
completely lost in the fabulous but enchanting tale of
Aladdin and his lamp? 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
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?

September '4Q saw several changes in this city's sys-
tem of schools. As a direct result of those changes the
royal carpenters were ordered to construct an orhce in
NRHS for the newly selected Sultan.

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.

he will continue to give of himself and his ideals to the
future classes of New Rochelle High School.
MISS F. LORETTA 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.

CLASS HISTORY - I.E.Y.
"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
As juniors we felt we had climbed high, onto the
ladder of success. This was the year that marked the

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

senior year at New Rochelle has been a combination
of all the exciting and unforgettable times witnessed
throughout our school career.

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
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
With this successful ear behind us, we were read
to become " rfect seniorsf,
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

SENIOR SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
One day, a few weeks after the gala opening of the
combined high schools, I was strolling through the
dimly lit, lengthy corridors. 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
The "slave of the ring" then worked on the biggest
event of out school career, the Senior Prom!

to everyone concerned with the royal chronicles-one
which will never be forgotten.
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
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.

Une of the incentives for hard-toiling juniors and

up a goal toward which students may work to achieve
the honor and prestige that accompanies its member-
Under the capable direction of Miss Florence Errant,

QM - f-I
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.
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."
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.

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.

Minnesota's control of the back-
boards and good shooting by all
members of the team opened a 29-

had started. Although Maryland put
on a last period rally. they couldn't
come close enough and Minnesota
won. 5-3 to 46.

THE G. 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.
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:

It was Iune 26th, 1960. 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
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-
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.

Look into the gleaming sunset
While the magic carpet of youth flies hy
lum p on this carpet!
You graduates of '50
And with the strength of youth hang on!
For together we'll build a nation, a world
to he admired.
But don't close your eyes
Or the magic carpet will pass you hy.
E EE. rtset
By IEANNE LONGDEN and RITA DANDRIDGE
As the magic carpet disappears,
Beyond the Tower's rim,
The school grows quiet with setting sun,
The lake's rejqections dim.
Slowly the curtain of dusk descends,
Silence reigns in the shadowy halls,
Broken only hy the echoes,
Of memories locked within these walls.
The quiet ozferpowers all,
Another senior class departs,
Carrying the memories of high school days
Securely locked within their hearts.
