Crcctmgs to the Class of '49:
You, as members of the Class of '49, are about to enter into a new phase of your life. 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

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.

Tn September, 1946, the class of '49 officially becamea class in the eyes
of the school. Our day had arrived. We were Sophomores at last. 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
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.

was Newington's smashing upset over a heavily-favored Wiiiclsor High team. In
this game the "Blue and Goldn showed what clean play and cooperation could do
against a bigger, rougher-playing team. Milton Lockwood was high scorer for the
season with five goals.

Soccer, basketball, volleyball, and baseball were some of the athletic activities
which the senior girls enjoyed throughout this year. 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.

main aims of the organization are to instill in the members a greater appreciation
of the drama, and to give them an opportunity to receive some experience in the
various make-up techniques and in the production of plays.
The elub's public performance this year was the presentation of the three-act
farce-comedy, 'tI-ady Be Goodfl by Dana Thomas. The east of the play repre-
sented a good Cross-section of the senior high divisions.

coverage of sports, and a humor column.
As in other years, the Scribe was a member of the Columbia Scholastic Press
.Xssociation, and members of the staff attended the annual Connecticut Scholastic

AUDIO -VISUAL EDUCATION SOCIETY
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
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
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-

THE PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB
The Photography Club is a new organization this year in Newington High
School. 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.

T. B. 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
Meetings of this group were held once a month. Social activities included
bowling, a Halloween party, a Christmas dance, picnics, and hay rides.

The Chemistry Club was organized in 1947.
The activities of the club included visits to a laboratory and a hospital,
and a lecture by a local druggist.
At the regular weekly meetings of the club various experiments were car-
ried on under the direction of Miss Elizabeth Glass, the faculty adviser.
It is the purpose of the organization to provide those students who are
particularly interested in chemistry with more opportunities for study in this
