PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS
The arrival of the Bugle of 1942, marks the end of another school year
in the lives of the Students of Newtown High School. Those of you in the
Senior Class look forward eagerly to the many kinds of experience which will
be yours upon Commencement. Those of you who are still undergraduates,
will soon enter another class with all its trials and adventure.
Such a record as lies within these pages, a record of fun and of serious
work, will enable you, as beneficiaries of the American public school system,
to evaluate the advantages you have received. It offers you the opportunity to
look back with a smile over what has already passed, and may inspire you to
keep smiling as you work with a zeal for the preservation of a similar kind of
opportunity for those who come after you.

These four thousand chickens of mine were a great problem until I sud-
denly discovered a revolutionary chicken feed that doubled my egg production
and enabled me to make my fortune. With all my millions, I decided to go on
tour to look up all my old school chums.
Scouting about, I heard that a few of my former classmates lived in
Bridgeport, so I made this my first stop. While talking to my old friend
f'Pecky," who was by then chief sales girl in the lingerie department at D. M,
Read's, Inc., who should come strutting in but Marge johnson, that famous
New York model-you know, one of the "Powers girls."
After renewing these two acquaintances, I set out again only to meet
Ethel King, soaring up and down in her elevator, carrying passengers from fioor
to floor. She left me out on the ground iioor, and I was off again to carry on
Arriving at La Guardia field, from whence I was to take an airplane cross-
country, I approached an important looking fellow, resplendent in his uniform,
and was astonished to find that it was Harold R. Berglund, chief pilot of the
transcontinental fiagship. We always knew 'fBergie" had high ideas.
While enroute to Washington, I met my fellow travelers and to my great
surprise, found those two noted economists, Goldberg and Nezvesky, among
them, returning to their offices in the treasury department. And our stewardess
was none other than Alma Pallini! They do say that truth is stranger than fiction.
In Washington my first stop was at the White House, where I was cordially
greeted by Ernest Ehle fnow presidentl, surrounded by throngs of little red-
headed children. QMary Hill did have red hair, didn't she?j. I attended the
presidential luncheon and met among other Senators, Bill Johnston, campaign-
ing for an anti-strike law.
Leaving Washington, and flying westward over the vast farmlands of
Indiana, my gaze was drawn to a large farm, where, through my powerful
binoculars, I could distinguish Hawkins and Wilkes, still arguing, but still
Flying still farther, we swooped down over the Grand Canyon, where I
could perceive that brilliant Army engineer, Henry Krohn, damming up the
other end of that great river, to provide a new mail route from east to west.
Alighting at Hollywood, I looked up my old friend, Phil Davy, and after
finding that Santa Anita was closed for the season, easily located him at the best
nite club in town.
Later while wandering through the sets, I came upon "Connie" Douglas,
that small town girl who made better than good on the silver screen. Who'd
have thought "The Happy Days" would have been the beginning of such a
brilliant career. Before leaving the studios, I dropped in to watch the shooting
of "Letter For Thee," to find it directed by Elzie Hunicutt! Well, there's noth-
ing like ambition.
Heading homeward, I stopped at the University of Michigan where I met
Professor Lupi and his ever present assistant, Claire Kondolf. Visiting the pro-
fessor for dinner, I found Warren Andrews rehearsing his explanation of the
third quadrant for the professor's bedtime story.
Again on the homeward trail, and as I had still to see Jim Cavanaugh, I
dropped over to Cooperstown. where, sure enough, jim's statue was proudly
displayed among the other greats in baseball. Then off again-to leave my
traveling companion. Bob Smith to gather his Forest Rangers together.
My curiosity satisfied, I turned towards home, convinced that the Class
of 1942 has made good, or has it?

THE SENIOR CLASS
The Class of 1942 is really not glad or sorry to leave Newtown High School. As
we leave we will take with us many pleasant memories which will never be replaced.
Few of us are going on to college, more of us will go into the business world: but all
will remember our school days and often will we wish to return.
Our Senior year was the best year of them all, probably because we were Seniorsg
on our way to a new and different life. Before we are graduated we wish to thank
everyone for the guidance and aid they have offered us and we wish all seniors and
lower classman in future years-Best wishes always.

THE AIUNIOR CLASS
The junior Class, with Miss Bader as advisor, started off the year by electing
their officers. To reimburse our treasury, we then made and sold candy at the basketball
games. Class rings were our next thoughts. As is the custom at Hawley School, rings
are bought in the junior year, and this year under the the chairmanship of Anne Hill
they arrived early, to be worn forever as a remembrance of our school days.
Last but not least the juniors join together to wish the Seniors success and
YAIIRIAM BuTicNskx', l'rrxi1lw1f
I fell in love the very moment I first laid eyes on him. Right then and there
I knew that he must be mine and I determined to win him over. He is a type
which no one can help loving. He is the most strikingly handsome creature I
have ever seen, very slender but strongly built Q one might even call him stream-
linedjg when he walks, his even stride and poised carriage reveal a strong pride
within himself 5 his very motion is so smooth and so graceful that it is a pleasure
to watch him. His hair, a beautiful black with a hint of a wave, is soft and silky
to the touch, his eyes, too, are dark, and deeply expressive and when they first
saw mine, the way they lighted up, I could tell that he liked me, too.
Since that first memorable meeting I have seen him quite frequently, but
now at last I have won him over and I know that he is really mine. He is my
constant companion and has often proved his loyalty and devotion. He is always
ready and eager to do anything for me whenever I ask, and even does little things
which I do not ask and which please me even more. If I am ever in any trouble
or danger he seems always to be able to sense itg he comes to my rescue, like a
noble hero, ready to battle any obstacle in order to protect me, and his valiant
efforts and deep concern always fill me with great pride.
Whenever he sees me approaching he rushes up to meet me, with a happy
expression in his eyes. Even after having seen him so many times, it never fails
to make my heart leap when I see him again.
Quite frequently, we take long walks together and I talk to him almost
constantly gas I am sometimes inclined to doj. Whenever I am feeling blue I
pour out all my troubles to him. He just sits and listens attentively to my tales
of woe, with concern in his deep brown eyes, but never saying a word or offering
any advice. Nevertheless, I know that he understands, and his silence is just his
way of conveying his sympathy, for he can always sense my every change of
mood and he changes his own to match mine.
He is truly a very remarkable creature, he seems to attract the admiration
of everyone who sees him, and I just cannot help loving him as I do. Each new
day and each thoughtful action brings me closer to the realization that "A dog
is man's best friend."

According to tradition, each year the Senior Class delves into the realm
of the theatre in order to try its luck in the make-believe world and to display
some of its remarkable hidden talents.
The class of '42 selected for its production "The Happy Days," a delight-
ful French comedy, which was concerned with the love problems and complexi-
ties of youth.
The scene of action is a house on an island in the St. Lawrence River where
circumstances have isolated five young cousins, three of whom are girls. Mari-
anne is very much in love with Oliver, a rather cynical fellow, who apparently
takes her affections for granted. In desperation, Marianne and Pernette "invent"
a rival-tall, handsome, dashing--a French version of Rhett Butler. As if by
fate, he is transformed to life in the person of Michael, an aviator, who has been
forced down on the island. He ruffles the peaceful serenity of the island, capti-
vating all three girls by his charm. All three fall in love with him, but Michael,
in his worldly manner, takes them in his stride. After-tactfully maneuvering a
suitable love scene with each, he takes his leave, satisfied that happiness has
been restored to the island refuge.

Minus many fine players of last year's squad, but with new and capable material
ready and eager for actionfa new season was begun. The team, slow getting started,
and lacking the teamwork and extra spark that it needed to win, lost many hard fought
games. Despite these defeats, however, the team, undaunted, was always willing to try
again and although the win column was not overllowing for us, there were many instances
where Newtown looked like a winning combination. Much enjoyment and fun as well as
experience was gained by the players in our bid for victory.
We, who are graduating this year give our sincere thanks to Mr. Gibbs, our coach,
and wish the present and future players the greatest success for the coming season.
llll ll' llll tl! l
'l'hree cheers for a hard working and
co-operative team. Certainly they de-
serve this much credit in spite of all their
misfortunes. Not every team can be vic-
torious all the time and this year we fell
in that category. In spite of all that, the
guards Haefle, Quinn, Morgan and Han-
lon worked hard to see that the ball did
not find the basket on their side of the
court: and to be sure, the forwards Ras-
mussen, Hill, Hill, and Hill tried their
best to tind the rim.
Without the patient and persistent
coaching of Mr. Gibbs certainly the
team could not have accomplished as
much as it did.
Good luck, girls, next year.
THE ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE
This year. as in previous years, an Assembly Committee was organized. It con- ll
sisted of twenty-two members, who have been working hard with Miss Kroha and
Mr. Lupi to present a good program every Thursday. I
The Committee is proud to say that it has presented an assembly program prac-
tically every week. We have had many different programs which we think have satisfied
the varied interests of the student body four audiencej.
The Assembly Committee this year' hopes that their work will be remembered and
continued by another group of industrious and willing students next year.

Steindler, presidentg Virginia Wiser, vice-president: Betty Haefle, secretary, and Mrs.
' Daniels, our gifted guiding note, to whom we all extend our appreciation for making
nightingale-sounds come from twenty-two eager, young voices.
, In February we made a very pleasant trip to New York to see Verdi's opera i'Aida.'l
Transportation was supplied by Mrs. Daniels and Mr. Paul Cullens, whom we all sin-
cerely thank. At present we are preparing what we think will be a delightful program

This year the club has really gone to it and produced a few successful plays. As for
the club, there has been great interest and a desire among the members to put on some--
thing worthwhile. Thus one play was presented which had been written by one of our
students, Eugene Woodin. This went over with a bang, and such talent is hoped for
in the future.
Of course we can not forget the able director and coach of these plays, Mr. Reed.
He is greatly responsible for the gathering momentum of interest in the club.

THE CAMERA CLUB
The Camera Club has exhibited excellent work this year, not only by the advanced

esting pictures were taken by everyone. During the year two contests were held, resulting
in some excellent entries.
