When our steps have left these portals Time and change have had their way Still will sound the old time slogan "Newburgh, Newburgh, N. F. A.!" And the memory backward turning, Finds us loyal still and true To the school whose treasured emblem Is the "Yellow and the Blue." FOREWORD How many times and with how many different thoughts have we sung these words to our beloved Alma Mater! Our school song, written in 1890 by Miss R. Bell Chapman, to whom we fondly dedicate this book, is cherished by all of us. But have we ever taken its phrases apart, said them slowly, thought about them? This year our staff decided to do just that, and the result you will see in the following pages. Each line has suggested a thought, each thought a picture, and each picture, a treasured memory of NFA. " loyol still, ond true. " CC A Miss R. BELL CHAPMAN We, the class of 1956, dedicate our yearbook to Miss R. Bell Chapman. It is with the greatest of respect and gratitude that we and countless numbers of people look upon her. To past students of N. F. A., she brought alive in her classroom many writings of great authors. To them and to us she gave our cherished and honored Alma Mater, "The Yellow And The Blue". In the year 1890, when Newburgh Free Academy adopted yellow and blue as its school colors, Miss Chapman wrote this song which is now sung with pride, honor, and joy, by all of us, and shall continue to be for many years to come. As long as we all shall live, a special place in our hearts will belong to Miss R. Bell Chapman, who taught, with tolerance and kindliness, so much, to so many. ,xl ff 3 Q 1 it as .- ww-Q..

HAROLD MONSON Superintendent ADMINISTRATICDN "I have so much to do!" America's great achievements have been brought about by people who have "so much to do". Their fields of interest have been infinite, their energy inexhaustible. The future belongs in the hands of the Class of 1956. May you always have "so much to do" and may success attend your efforts! ROBERT D. FOWLER Principal To the members of the class of 1956: As the Class of 1956 transcends from a part of the student body of N.F.A. to a place in the folds of the Alumni of N.F.A. I feel certain that this transition is an indication of a class going out into the world to make a name for itself and its individual members. In paying farewell, I wish each member of the class success in the years to come. WILLIAM MCDONOUGH Vice-principal To the members of the class of 1956: May I offer my sincere congratulations and best wishes for your success and happiness in your future endeavors. ISABEL M.

REPRESENTATIVE MORAN KAPLAN HANNAH KAPLAN JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY ROBERT SHEARER "Taking hostage for the future"-a verse from the second stanza of our school song, "The Yellow and the Blue" is a verse with deep meaning. It is a known fact that the American public school system was organized for the purpose of preparing American youth for the role of worthy United States citizens. Newburgh Free Academy serves as one of the institutions which accomplishes this purpose. We, the members of the Junior Class, along with the seniors and sophomores, share a mutual interest-the knowledge we gain and the activities in which we participate during our three-year stay at N.F.A. Behind the well-loved brick walls, we lay the groundwork for our future life much as a building constructor lays the foundation for a new house. As up-and-coming citizens, our chief aim in life is eternal happiness. However, the path to this goal is a long and winding oneg nevertheless, it is uring our high school days that we begin our climb to success. Thus, we are taking hostage for the future. Our junior year has served as a stepping stone to the future. Preparing for the junior Prom and the Junior Class Show taught us co-operation and responsibility. Na- tional Honor Society inductions added anxiety fto make it or not to make it-that was the question lj sports events captured the joy of winning and the sorrow of losing fbut it's all in the game.j The remembrance of Frankie Faine, Ed Ralph, "Alabama jubilee", "Memories", the stardust, and the top hats-all are reflected in a year of joy . . . mixed with a bit of worry. The product? A step closer to our vital position in life! We have "taken hostage for the future in the work accomplished here."

Next, Hannah Kaplan intro- duced delightful Marcia Davis, por- traying Wendy Davis, who gave a brief and enjoyable commercial. Our class comedian, Moran Kaplan, then came bouncing out on the stage as Frankie Faine. After meeting his mother, QBeverly Fescoej Frankie took a seat with his wife fKathy Lambertj. Everything was quiet for a few seconds, when suddenly two voices came over the microph-one, The nrst one was DeForest Bronk as Frankie's father. The next one was David Harris as Frank's friend, joe Crosby. Vivacious joan Hogancamp stun- ned the audience, singing "Temp- tation", Each and every act did its v fs k as iefsiiv :Lili 0 Your Life" of '57 best to make the assembly a hit. Withiout a doubt, they were very successful. Since we have such good singers in the junior class, they decided to put their heads together. As a re- sult Bob Shearer, Robert Pritchard, Stuart Sharp and Dave Levinson formed a quartet, "The Cell Block Heads". Marie Ventimiglia rocked the audience with her entertaining song. Carlene Kessel and Pat Kos- cesky impressed the audience sing- ing "Make Love To Me". The jun- ior class has other talent besides singers, Pat Parisi and Marie Ven- timiglia proved that statement when they danced to a rumba. Making the show still more enjoyable were j o h a n n a h Calyer, Mary Lee Meneely, and Rosalie Masloski do- a pantomine act. No show is complete without at- tractive hula dancers. Phyllis Levy, Martha Burlock, and Sandra Gaff- ney did the motions and dance to "Sweet Lalanief' You have seen dancing acts before, but the dex- terity and grace of john Hill and Viola Bomar as they danced to the tango will long be remembered. Needless to say, this was one of the most enjoyable and successful assemblies ever held on the New- burgh Free Academy stage.

Reprefentaliffe "Three long years we spend together . . The former grads learned to sing: "Four long years we spend togetherug however, the establishment of the two junior high schools caused a change in the song as well as the school system. But be it three or four years, most of us are aware of the fact that our high school years are probably the most pleasant and satisfying years of our lives. Here we meet teen- agers from every part of the city and we form new friendships that we hope will last throughout our livesg here we are introduced to the experience of learning how to asso- ciate with people who have hitherto been strangersg here, too, we pass from childhood, and our thoughts and actions take on the air of maturity. Thus, we, the sophomores, realize that the three years we spend in Newburgh Free Academy-working and playing together-help us to prepare ourselves for the years to follow, when we must find our own places in life and in the world.

The authors, all five of them, wrote a cute script. Expectations were high and no one got "gypped". With "Flashes of Smashes" the name of the show We then chose to emcee it Diane and joe. Shearer and Palmieri- respectively, I mean. The performances they gave turned out to be keen. Four solo singers appeared on the bill. I think I should tell their names, therefore I will: Roberta Cassolino thrilled all with her song, For jenny Trapini they they clapped loud and long. john Nixon is N.F.A.'s own Dennis Day, Walt Rossman made even the seniors yell, "yea!" Shirl Davidsburg did a cute pantomine act, The kids really loved it, fand man, that's a factlj The costume Dave Rider wore was truly a panic, Hal Peretz as Humphrey was real "manianic" FLINGH The band was great- real hep to the jive, And the "By the Sea" act from 1925, Consisted of five girls, some real mixed up "cats" Who all wore striped longies and sent the crowd "bats". One unique act that made the kids hum Was an accordion duet plus a bongo drum. The "Glad Rag Doll" chorus line was certainly cute, After that the boys started to whistle and hoot. The Imperial Four-mmmmboy- can they sing! They br-ought down the house with their pro' sounding ring, Carole Levinson's solo was done with great skill, She also accompanied acts -on the bill, Sue Langer, too, did piano playing, For her agile fingers, they did much hooraying. Oodles of thanks from the Class of 'five eight' Goes to Mrs. Henderson who was really great. The show was a hit, that's perfectly clear, And we're eagerly waiting Junior assembly next year.

This could probably be termed one of the heaviest schedules ever played by the Goldbacks. Three of our opponents went on to win championships. Poughkeepsie won the DUSO crown, Mt. Pleasant was undefeated in the capital district, and Beacon won their league title on the east bank of the river, Despite the calibre of most of the opposition, N.F.A. made a good showing. As Coach Hemingway puts it, "The number of games won and lost doesn't indicate the true merit of a team. The 1955 team may not rank with our best, but it may well be said that was a good team."

With one substitute return- ing from last year's ten-team squad, little was expected. Competing in the nine-team Duso League, the Goldbacks won 8 and lost 6 to finish in 4th place.
