The Connecticut River flowing past the city of Northampton as seen from Mt. Holyoke.
WHERE RUNS THE RIVER
Where runs the river? Who can say
Who hath not followed all the way
By alders green and sedges gray
And blossoms blue?
Where runs the river? Hill and wood
Curve round to hem the eager flood,
It cannot straightly as it would
Its path pursue.
Yet this we know: O'er whatso plains
Or rocks or waterfalls it strains,
At last the Vast the stream attains,
And I, and you.
Francis William Bourdillon 118521
Looking down from the neighboring mountains
upon the city of Northampton, the traveller views the
mighty Connecticut River winding its way maiestically
through a broad, fertile valley-one of the Ioveliest
scenes in all America. He may well pause to ask
"Where runs the river?" as he sees "HiIl and wood
curve round to hem the eager flood." Not only is he
impressed by the beauty and serenity of the river, but
also by its importance to the city by which it so calmly
To this river Northampton indeed owes ,much of its
industrial, recreational, historical, and educational
progress. In the early seventeenth century the pio-
neers settled here, by the banks of the Connecticut,
because of conveniently located lands, a rich soil, an
ideal climate, a source of water power, and a natural
means of transportation. Thus, the river became the
"flowing bIood" of a growing settlement and assured
the permanent establishment of a strong and thriving
The growth of the city, in turn, naturally assured
the founding of ,schools-schools of fine American
traditions. Such a one is Northampton High School.
As we, the students of N.H.S., follow the river
beyond the years of our formal schooling, it is well
that we should recall and cherish pleasant memories,
thrilling moments, and sincere friendships made during
our years as high school students. It is therefore the
purpose of this Nesaki to record reminders of these
to carry with us as each one, like the river, goes forth
to meet the unknown in striving to attain his goal.

As we, the Class of '56, venture forth on the river of
the future, we shall become increasingly aware of the
guidance given us by the faculty during our four years
at Northampton High School. Our sincere apprecia-
tion goes especially to our principal, Mr. Darby, and
to our deans, Miss Doppmonn and Mr. Foran, for
their unlimited patience, wise counselling, and for the
endless recommendations written in our behalf. It is
to each member of the faculty, however, that we owe
our deepest gratitude for their day-by-day guidance
and their personal interest in our progress. Theirs was
the endless task of imparting information, of awaken-
ing in us an appreciation of cultural values, and of
developing in us a sense of responsibility. Because of
these and other innumerable reasons our thanks and
best wishes are extended to you, the faculty of North-
ampton High School.

Exalted to the rank of iuniors at last! For a year we
are the nearest heirs to the throne. From this dizzy
height we look down with a sniff and up with a sigh.
This year has brought with it a crowd of new dignities
such as the prom, marshals, and class rings.
We are next door to heaven, the underclassmen
worship us and the seniors tolerate us. We feel sudden-
ly serious and responsible. This year we are being
considered for "college material," a long aptitude
examination and interviews give us more confidence
in ourselves and our plans. For the first time we are
looked upon to "set an example."
With heavy books but light hearts we wait for the
coronation which will surely come.

This fall Northampton High School welcomed our
class. We are the freshmen, the Class of l959.
We had quite a iolt. Last year we were "The High
and the Mighty" eighth graders, all-powerful rulers
of our individual school, this year we are but meek
freshmen-obiects of good humor and pranks, sub-
iects of anecdotes and traditional initiation. Never in
our eight years of school have we ever encountered
the monomials and binomials of algebra or Socrates
and Demosthenes, strange people from the pages of
our history book, and a Latin vocabulary that holds
us in weird fascination.
Though each of us came with pride for our individ-
ual school, gradually we have been molded into a
solid, friendly body, transforming our scattered loyal-
ties into one-to Northampton High School.

First year French is a required subiect
of college course students. Much emphasis
is placed on basic grammar and vocabu-
lary during this term. Hamp's second year
Frenchmen undertake the more ditticult
intricacies ot the language. These are
accompanied by short stories that are
read for vocabulary, grammar, and en-
ioyment. By the third year the student is

He delights in the escapades of Jean

the tender love story of Cosette and
Marius. The student has a choice of several

know what is meant by "vital" French.
Although all of us speak English, the graduate
of Northampton High School has perfected his
ability to use his language with more than
average correctness, and to appreciate the
beauty of its literature.
To help attain this goal a very complete pro-
gram is planned for him throughout his four
years. He learns the fundamentals of grammar
his first two years, going on to acquire new
beauty in his speech with more mature sentence
construction and a study of vocabulary and
English composition his last two years. Third
year emphasis is on American literature. Our
most famous authors and poets and their works
are carefully studied.
The fourth year the student travels through
England, learning her history, visiting her many
famous sites of interest, and learning to know
her people through her literature. This course
takes us from ancient Stonehenge, through the
study of one of Shakespeare's plays, to today's

Latin is far from being "the dead lan-
guage" at Northampton High School. It is
required for two years for those students
taking the college course and is an elec-
tive the last two years.
The first year introduces the student to
grammar forms and vocabulary. The next
year finds him deep in the writings of
Caesar. The third year reveals the ancient
letters of Cicero, Pliny, and Gellius. By
the fourth year the Latin student under-

into two congruent triangles, one suddenly
finds that his reasoning power has not
come too far. Solid and Trig appear dur-
ing the fourth year and it is in this class
that superior skill in the use of figures is
quite an aid. Sine and tangent are the
passwords for room T05 and a slight
knowledge of the slide rule gains quicker
admittance. Review Math is a course open
only to Seniors. The principles of Algebra,
Geometry, and Trig are all included and
the year is spent in an all-around review.

when as Juniors they continue their studies with Chemistry.
Before formal enrollment in this science, the student's knowl-
edge of the subiect has been confined to the chemistry sets
of his play-room days. Experiments are conducted twice a
week and the favorite lab period is one devoted to the
manufacture of H2S, or hydrogen sulfide, despite the fact
that the lab is shunned and the students ostracized for hours
after. In Physics, Seniors investigate such interesting things
as centrifugal force and gilley boilers, and follow the adven-

The story of History unfolds for Freshmen with the study
of Caesar, Nero, and the hows and whys of the ancient
Egyptians. Many interesting people and numerous exciting
and bloody battles are brought to light in this required
freshman course of Ancient and Medieval History. Promo-
tion to the Sophomore level offers history as an elective
course. Those choosing that course are introduced to Euro-
pean History which stars such celebrities as Napoleon,
Bismarck, Queen Elizabeth I, and Louis XIV. As Juniors,
students begin the study of American History, tracing its
course from Colonial America to the time of President Lin-
coln. The Juniors not only inaugurate fifteen presidents but
also fight political battles, bands of Indians, the American
Revolution, and the Civil War. Another phase of Junior his-

with Mexico, learn methods of bank-

makes a N.H.S. graduate from the Commercial Course such
a prize? N.H.S. has the distinction of being one of the few
high schools which, under the auspices of the Business
Department, offers typing to every Sophomore. This is help-
ful not only to those continuing in the Commercial Course

Instead of using the halls as sounding

music which will last for four years. The

the Student Council. Early in the year the
Council published a pamphlet containing
information useful to freshmen. The iun-
iors, breaking away from custom, were
measured for their class rings in October
in order that they might receive them
earlier in the year. The marshal system
was completely revised and a method ot
choosing the marshals in which the faculty
contributed was inaugurated. Also, the
constitution was rewritten by a committee
of council members. Another first was the
broadcasting of the annual Community
Chest program over station WHMP. The
Student Council this year held two dances,

that the fortunate few maintaining a "B or bet-

final exams. This year the Pro Merito Society,
under the able guidance of Miss Noddin, was
granted two other outstanding privileges. First
is the unrestricted use of the library during free
periods, and the second is the honor of being a
receptionist at the main entrance to greet the
school's many visitors.
One of the activities supervised by Pro Merito
members at N.H.S. is the presentation of the Me-
morial Day Assembly. The members also serve
as guides for Parents' Night and ushers at Class
Night and Graduation.

The lights dimmed. The curtain opened. And sud-
denly a lull came over the audience. It was the night-
the night of all nights for the "Hump High Hopefuls"!
On that certain evening a real variety show appeared
at N.H.S.-Northampton's own "Amateur Hour."
From the moment the masters of ceremonies an-
nounced the evening's program until the impressive
finale of the show, every eye focused on the talented
performers. The program ranged from tap duets, ba-
ton twirling, and the Charleston, to a roller skating
"Indian Dance," pantomine renditions of popular hit
songs, weight lifting, and piano concertos. Therefore,
it is with tribute to the "Hamp High Hopefuls" that this
page is hopefully dedicated with the hope that there
will be many more shows like it in future years.

The Math Club, under the capable leadership of
Miss McDonnell, functions for a better understanding
of mathematics in its various forms. Seniors taking solid
geometry and trigonometry are eligible for member-
ship. At the monthly meetings, these "Junior Einsteins"
discuss subjects of interest along mathematical lines.
The more ambitious members of the club learn to man-
ipulate the slide rule, while others accept the challenge
of solid geometry models and cross-word puzzles. Still
others find that the historical backgrounds of the really
great mathematicians are most interesting.
lt is an entertaining club plus an instructive one and
each member finds it thoroughly enioyable.

Despite its heavy schedule, the band has
given painstaking care to each perform-
ance, and every student at Hamp High has
good reason to be proud of these repre-
sentatives of our music groups.
The coming of the football season al-
ways brings with it the marching rhythms
of the Northampton High School band.
This year the band, under the direction of
Mr. George Menousek, appeared sixty
strong, thirty of whom were freshmen.
During the tall, the band was on the
field each day working out new routines.
At the pep assemblies the band added
snappy marches and inspiring tunes.
In addition to its appearances at foot-
ball games and rallies, this year's band
gave a concert in the spring, attended the
Music Festival in Westfield, and marched
in both the St. Patrick's Day parade in
Holyoke and the Memorial Day ceremonies
in Northampton and Florence, In January,
it escorted a delegation of Marines, par-
ading for the March of Dimes, from the
high school to City Hall.

What is a band without nattily attired, high-step-
ping maiorettes? Northampton High School is especi-
ally proud of its eight lovely misses led by Captain J.
Much credit is due these girls who brave all kinds
of weather in their blue and gold outfits. Although it
is not easy to keep a bright smile while the cold, biting
winds wrap their knees in a deep-freeze, Hamp High
maiorettes make no complaints. But "weather" or not,
the lot of a maiorette is a happy one.

"We'll cheer you where e'er you go!" These rousing
words from one of our school songs became the pass-
word this year for Northampton High School's nine,
vivacious cheerleaders led by Pat Miller. The squad,
comprised of one senior, seven iuniors, and one sopho-
more, showed endless originality in the skits and new
cheers which it introduced.
A "cheer-o-meter," designed to record the volume
of applause, aided the girls at the assemblies. These
ambitious ladies also delighted the student body with
their hilarious caricatures both of our own and of rival
players. The girls, assisted by the band, presented a
tumbling act during half-time at the football games.
They also found time to sponsor a dance which cli-
maxed Booster Week.
Truly, Hamp High's morale boosters are "the most,
to say the least!"

The Tri-Hi-Y has as its purpose, "to create, maintain, and extend
throughout the home, school, and community, high standards of
Christian character." The Tri-Hi-Y this year has done much for
Northampton High School and for Northampton.
The club made up Thanksgiving baskets for families who other-
wise would not have enjoyed a happy holiday. Toys were presented
to the Children's Welfare at Christmas time. Food sales were held
to raise funds for World Service. Each of these enterprises were
services to the community.
Members of the Tri-Hi-Y as high school citizens helped to swell
the school fund by selling candy and soda at the plays, However,
all was not work for the Tri-Hi-Y girls. Socially they enjoyed dances,
pot-luck suppers, pizza parties, and splash parties. The Northamp-
ton chapter sent delegates to the Older Girls' Conference held in

The 'I955 Northampton football squad under the
new regime of Coach Gene DeFilippo ended its season
with an impressive record of two wins and six losses.
In the newly formed football conference, Hamp was
not slated to win a game. The victories over Holyoke
and Agawam were won by hard football and by play-
ing with a big heart.
C hief of Staff
Seniors playing their last games for Northampton
High School were Dick Turban, Tom Diemand, Jack
Banner, John Gonski, Mike Duseau, Jeff Foran, Mario
Simeone, Dave Filkins, Larry Mahoney and Bob Foote.
Foote, our outstanding tackle, was chosen for the All-
Western Massachusetts second team.

Northampton, the team that was sup-
posed to be defeated by everyone in the
conference, opened its 1955 season with
a display of hard, clean football by de-
feating Holyoke 6-0. With one minute to
go in the game, on a 99-yard screen pass
from Bruce Grinnell, Tom Diemand scored
Hamp's touchdown. Bob Foote was also
outstanding for the Blue Devils.
Traveling to Agawam for a twice post-
poned contest, Northampton upset the
Brownies with a surprising 13-7 victory.
With Hamp on the short end 7-6, Tom Die-
mand made a one-yard plunge and Mario
Simeone, Hamp's great back swept left
end for 30 yards and a touchdown. Hamp's
defense was exceptionally fine for it
stopped the Brownies twice within the 20-
Lacking weight, Hamp was defeated by
a powerful West Springfield team 24-0.
With two classy backs in Dave Bishop and
Gerry Henderson, the Terriers outclassed
Hamp by a wide margin. For Hamp, it was
again Bob Foote with the help of .left
Foran, who stalled the Terriers' offense.
In a postponed contest, Hamp was over-
powered by a strong Greenfield team
20-7. The first half was costly as Green-
field scored all of their points then, with
Stan Scott doing most of their running. In
this game Bob Foote was said to have been
all over the field.
Holyoke closes in.
Having a 2-2 record thus far, Hamp lost a really
tough game to Chicopee by a score of 7-0. The only
score came in the second period when Don Picard
ran 34 yards for a touchdown. Again Hamp's defense
was exceptional. Bob Foote and John Gonski played
a steady defensive line game for the Blue Devils.
Three touchdowns in the second half spelled defeat
for Hamp as Tech went on to win 21-0 on Booster Day.
Gary Hill was the outstanding back as he hit pay dirt
twice for Tech. Hamp just couldn't go in this one, de-
spite the fact the Bob Foote was again tremendous
in the Blue Devil line. Mike Duseau and Tom Enselek
were two other outstanding defensive backs who
played fine games.

The Blue Devils, outclassed and outweighed, were
smothered 40-20 by the Panthers from Springfield.
Hamp got twenty points, all in the last quarter. Paul
Kononitz led the way for the Panthers, hitting pay dirt
three times. Although Hamp was beaten, the twenty
points they scored in the last period showed that they
played with big hearts. Along with the fearless playing
of Bob Foote, Bruce Grinnell was outstanding.
In a rescheduled game, an injury ridden Hamp team
played Westfield on even terms until the third quarter
when Bob Green caught a screen pass and went for a
touchdown. After intermission Westfield came back
and beat Hamp by a steady ground game. Sopho-
mores Green and Enselek stood out with their excellent
defense play for the Blue Devils.

Northampton concluded its 1955-56 basketball sea-
son with a fair, but unimpressive record. Before the
initial tossup, Hamp was favored to be the Valley
League champs but it didn't turn out that way for the
Richiedeimen. Every opponent, after the season
started, was out to slaughter Hamp. Although they
didn't exactly slaughter the Blue Devils, they did de-
feat them by substantial margins in thirteen out of
twenty games. Mario Simeone concluded his fourth
basketball season with an average of about thirteen
points. Kenny Barrows, Bob Whitman, Ed Trzcienski,
and Bob Foote saw the finish of their playing days
here at Hamp giving a good account of themselves in
this basketball season. With the Varsity subs and the
present Junior Varsity ball club, Coach Richiedei has
a fine nucleus for next year.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL
Although the Junior Varsity won only nine of twenty
games this past season, they deserved a better fate.
They started the season in good form, but the advance-
ment of several players to the varsity in mid-season cut
down their proficiency. Most of the Junior Varsity
games were close, and although their record was

The baseball team enjoyed a mediocre season which
was due in part to sore arms and inexperience. The
Blue Devils had one veteran who enabled them to
win four ball games out of fourteen. This veteran, Bob
Graham, was voted to the Second Team All-Western
Massachusetts. Described as scrappy, he, with the help
of iuniors, Ken Barrows and Pete Bak, and a fine bunch
of sophomores, showed enthusiasm and perserverance
in all of the games. "Bernie" Lampron and "Chuck"

After an interval of many years, Northampton High
School has finally established a swimming team with
the able coach, Miles Tipton, of the YMCA, at its head.
He is assisted by Niles Jacoby who was graduated
from Hamp in 1955. It was a morally successful season
for the mermen, for much was gained in experience
not shown in the box scores. Our natators could hardly
be expected to overcome all of the powerful teams
with experienced, four-year swimmers, but the team
made a good showing in most of the meets. The team

subdued Springfield Trade twice which in itself, is an
accomplishment. Paul Frenier led in the scoring with a
remarkable 47 points. John Hanley was second with
39, and Ronald Lawrence, third with 37. Frenier is only
a freshman and has an excellent future in swimming.
Several other members deserving 'mention for their
work with the team are R. LaVallee, G. Hofmann, S.

has lost only one match in two years. This was lost by
a slim margin to Holyoke Catholic which was avenged
by a decisive victory over the same team in a later
match. A strong team will be returning next season as
Steve Kloc and Don Wilson are the only graduation
losses. Hamp won most of its matches by noticeable
margins. The team did not participate in the tourney

of a mix-up in time schedules. Morgan Parsons holds
the longest drive which was about 300 yards and also

Playing a weather-abbreviated schedule of only

ioyed a relatively good season. In the first game Hamp
played to within one minute of a scoreless tie, then
Hamp's goalie, Chris Gonski, committed a foul. After
a penalty bully, the Greenfield captain scored the
only goal of the game to defeat the Devilettes I-0.
Martha Clark, Barbara Touchette and Dorothy Mc-

The Junior Varsity Field Hockey team also had little
chance to display their talents due to the inclement
weather of the fall. They played one gome against the
Greenfield Jay Veers, their only regular game for the
season. Hamp lost this encounter by a 2-I score after
going ahead I-O at half time. Judy Crosland scored
Northampton's only goal on an assist from Gerti Gray.
In spite of their dwarfed season, however, the girls
showed great promise. Mony of them will undoubtedly
be considered for vorsity positions left vacant this year
by the five graduating seniors.
Not only next yeor's varsity team will benefit from
these Joy-Veers, but also teams for two and three
years to come since the entire team is composed of
underclossmen. Led by Captain Gerti Gray, there were
seven juniors, four sophomores, and four freshmen on
this fall's squad.

game, the Devilettes fell victim to the sharpshooting of
Joanne Zamoiski. In the fourth contest the Dalton team
outlasted Hamp to gain a two point victory. In the last
game of the first half of the season, Marguerite Aldrich
and her Amherst teammates sent the Devilettes down
to their third defeat.
Returning to Feiker Gym to start the second lop of
their schedule, the Hamp Hoopsters again took the
measure of Deerfield. The next two games were the
enviable wins over Turners Falls and Dalton, two of
the higher ranking teams in Western Massachusetts.
Hamp made it four straight as they defeated Ludlow
in the ninth game but in the last contest Amherst macle
it two straight over the Devilettes with a 34-26 victory.
In the statistics column, Hamp showed up remark-
ably well as they scored an average of 41.5 points
a game against an average of only 34.7 for their op-
ponents. High scorer for Hamp was Karen Wells a jun-
ior, who netted an average of 'I5 points each game.
Co-captains Jill Hickling and Judy Shermeta together
scored almost 80 percent of the rest of the team's

feats. ' -
The Jay-Veers won each of their first three games
by subduing Deerfield, Ludlow, and Turners Falls in

In the next encounter the Turners' Juniors avenged the
earlier Hamp victory by dumping the Hampers 26-'l9.

Led by the pitching of Barbara Touchette and Nancy
Coyne, who recorded three and two wins respectively,
the Devilette softball team compiled one of the best
records in recent years as they gained five wins in
seven starts. Greenfield was the only team to mar an
otherwise perfect record. In the first encounter Hamp
lost an extra-inning thriller by one point in the tenth
frame. The next three games were uncontested victories
for Hamp as they defeated Deerfield twice, 18-8 and
26-'l9, and Amherst once, 26-l 1.
The fifth game was played at Greenfield and again
the Greenies subdued Hamp, this time 'I4-6. When the
Devilettes played host to Amherst they recorded their

to be an almost perfect carbon copy of the first Green-

Hamp was on the long end of an 8-7 score.
