New and different experiences will greet you, New horizons will beckon to you in the future. l sincerely hope that your school life has instilled within each and everyone of you a faith in the future of America. You have studied about the courage and faith of our Founding Fathers and their achievements despite tremendous obstacles. You have learned of the struggle man has endured seeking the goals recorded in our Declaration of Independence, in the preamble to the Constitution, and in Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. You have a knowledge of how man has lived and struggled for advancement. You know the problems faced in our pas-t history and the hardships endured to achieve advance- ment in the political, social, material and religious life of our country. Continue to think of the faith and courage of others in the past, and you will realize what can be achieved in the future if only we have such faith and courage. A marvelous new age lies ahead for youth. America shall remain a light and an example for the free peoples of the world so long as youth emerge from our schools imbued with the faith and courage to go forward. The challenge is yours. We feel confident you will meet it. c ' ulonn B. PlENDERSHUT S'11f7CI'i1ZfC71dC'11Ii of Schools. 6 The 1949 Sequin With the coming of june, the Class of 1949 will have completed twelve years of elementary and secondary education. Your teachers and I hope that, in addition to the fundamental skills which you have obtained, you have acquired concomitant learnings in self-government and toler- ance as well as a growth of responsibility in domestic, hemispheric, and world affairs. Your ex- periences have been mainly in institutions made for young people, real paradises for children. You have been looked upon as individuals with rights and privileges. As individuals, few of you have experienced real defeat. You are now entering a type of world which may differ considerably from the one you have just left. The ease with which you are able to adapt yourself to the changes will be as good a measure of your success as the academic grades earned during your formative years. CnARLEs A. Bowes Princifval.

That year we elected as our president, Burton Callahan, that energetic citizen of our fair metropolis. Our first, foremost, and indeed, only activity was the Sopho- more Hop. Having had no experience in planning a formal dance, we went ahead and tried it anyway. VVhen the dust cleared away, we found that we had actually been financially successful. Thus began a long and glorious record of profitable class activities which has never been broken. The next year, 1947-'48, the class moved up a step. Juniors now, we had more responsibilities, more activities, and a new president, Roy Peterson. Early in the year we concentrated our efforts on a Poverty Dance to which one wore what one pleased. This turned out to be a most enjoyable affair. Then in May our most important social function, the Junior Prom, was an outstanding success. Once more the class of '49 was on the credit side of the ledger. This year the class broke a long established precedent-we elected our president, Roy Peterson, to another term of office. An intensive magazine drive, climaxed with a gay party, started off the year in fine style. A New Yearls Eve Dance followed, then other activities. The class finished its last high-school year with a formal banquet and dance. The career of the Class of 1949 has been highlighted by cooperation and financial success in all undertakings. Let us hope that in future years the class members will continue this splendid record.

From their instructor, Bliss Margaret Clark, the girls learned the rules and techniques of each game thor- oughly and as a result proved to be excellent players as well as good sports. In the fall they raced up and down the soccer Held kicking the ball with a vengeance in their elfort to make goals. Later their interests turned toward bas- ketball. Concentrating on hook shots, foul shots, dribbling, pass-es, and guarding techniques the girls played a fast, clean, and energetic game. After the basketball season volleyball, badminton, hand soccer, and hand baseball occupied their time. ,X new and lively unit ol folk and square dancing was introduced this year. .Ns soon as the weather warmed up, the baseball diamond was the scene of their activities. There they hit frequent home runs and pop-fly balls. The Seniors have also participated in play days with other schools. Un Novem- ber l2, eight girls went to YVest Hartford where a bowling tournament took place. On january l2 another playday was held in Manchester, and in the spring one was held at Newington. ln all sports, the girls played with enthusiasm and unfailing energy. The sports- manship which they have shown is certain to continue into their future lives. The 1949 Sequin 45 The 1949 Sequin Af? f Qp w X Aff! ffl I1 19405 q Siffiilgy, loft to riglzfs-l..

THE 1948-1949 SCRIBE The policy of this year's Srrilu' was to provide interesting and accurate informa- tion of activities in the school and of the pupils in it. To do this the staff supplied more well-written news articles, better art work, an improved fashion page, a better coverage of sports, and a humor column.

AUDIO -VISUAL EDUCATION SOCIETY Oihcers President-Donald Thayer Secretary-Treasurer-VYarren Mason The main purpose of this club is to train students in the use, care, and maintenance of the various types of projectors and sound sys- tems used in the Newington schools. A wel- come addition to the club's equipment in the fall of 1948 was a wire recorder which has proved to be a valuable asset to English classes. The A.Y.E.S. also provides a film strip service through which the other schools in town may borrow and use filmstrips in their classes. This service was started on a townwide scale in the fall of 1947. The school was wired for a public address system in the fall of '48 and the spring of '49. The purpose of this system is to allow the stu- dents to hear important speakers and radio programs without convening in the auditorium or having each room equipped with a radio. In case of emergency, a simple announcement over this system could direct the students out 54 Yice-President-Herbert Machol Librarian-Richard Smith of the building by unblocked exits. The .-X.Y.E.S. also provides an operator and a projector whenever a civic organization needs themg thus it is an aid not only to the school, but to the connmmity as a whole. Church organizations and the several Scout Troops in town have found this service very valuable. Newington High has benefited to a high degree by the auditorium programs this club has provided in recent years. Reginald Wil- cox, Richard Nelson, Rufus Rose, George VVedber, Williaiii Greenough, and Kenneth VVheeler have made appearances in our audi- torium through arrangements made by this organization. The most significant fact about the A.V.E.S. is that all the huge tasks it has performed have been done quickly and most important of all- efficiently. The 1949 Sequin Sitting, Ivff to fIvfl1lffR. M.

The main purpose of the club is to familiarize the members with the fundamentals of pictorial composition, photographic chemistry, clark room pro- cedure, and different photographic techniques, and to make the school as a whole more conscious of photography. Ifach week the members meet with Mr. Allen, their adviser, and conduct experiments or attend illustrated lectures on some phase of photography. This year the club hopes to purchase some equipment and set up a permanent dark-room in the school.

THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION This organization is one of our smallest but most active clubs. lts aim is to promote inter-scholastic athletics and to arouse lively interest on the part of the students in support of their teams. During the baseball and soccer seasons the Athletic Association pays for the services of the umpires and the referees. Throughout the basketball season the members take charge of the games by issuing and collecting tickets for the games, paying the referees, keeping the score, and buying all the equipment. The money collected during this season furnishes most of the funds necessary to meet the sport expenses. To build up its treasury, the A. A. sponsored a dance at Christmas, which proved very successful. Coach Roberts and Eleanor Nugent, the business manager, have guided the club through a very active and profitable year. 56 The 1949 Sequin 'Us Lf! to right-Florence Smertz, Elma Parker, Miss E.

JUNIOR BOARD This year Roy Peterson, Florence Smertz, Donald VVaterman, and Elma Parker have been the representatives from Newington High School on the 'lunior Board of Directors of the Hartford Tuberculosis and Public Health Society. Flor- ence Smertz has had the honor of serving as treasurer of the board. The members of the Junior Board participated in the Christmas Seal Sale by placing coin boxes' in various public places. They also helped in the testing and X-ray work given by the board in our school. Through friendly visits and letters they have kept up the morale of many T. B.-stricken patients at the various hos- pitals. They also helped their classmates in gaining a better understanding of this disease by having every pupil take a short quiz on T. B. which was sponsored hy the board. Meetings of this group were held once a month. Social activities included bowling, a Halloween party, a Christmas dance, picnics, and hay rides.

It is the purpose of the organization to provide those students who are particularly interested in chemistry with more opportunities for study in this held.
