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 FOREWORD 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 flows. 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 community. 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. i .x XS. it is 1 X !

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 MYRTLE DOPPMANN JOHN FORAN Vice-Principal 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.

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. ROOM 208 FIRST ROW: B. Szarkowski, W. Wong, L.

Secretary-Treasurer 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. 8:45 A.M.

'L 4 fo '17 FRENCH 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 Replicas of the l8th century bring alive the Tale of Two Cities far Peter Jesyk. "Qu'est-ce que c'est?" says M. Buteau as Lois Hurley B. Driver, fait une faute. speaking the language "fluently" and keeping tradition by studying Victor Hugo's much-read novel, Les Miserables. He delights in the escapades of Jean Valiean, "un homme extrodinaire," and the tender love story of Cosette and Marius. The student has a choice of several French novels which he may read for extra credit. S. Paquette, L. Patlove, K. Doyle and A. Buchholz know what is meant by "vital" French. LANGUAGES ENGLISH 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 England. Pat Egan scans Virgil's dactylic hexameter. stands, thoroughly, the verb coniugations, sentence structure, endless vocabulary words and how to decipher subiunctives, indirect statements, and ablatives "of time when." Every student profits by his study of Latin. As most of our words are derived from Latin, a student is able to define the meanings of different English words by their derivation from the Latin words. Doris Drozdal and Richard Donziger consider Caesar's conquests. X Gail Manwell ocquaints Peggy Kennedy with literary London. L A T l N 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- WPFFIW 1 ,ppm ' I flvyt, , MATHEMATICS Freshmen are confronted with the mys- tifying value of X. It confronts them in the form of equations, graphs, and problems. For the students who have conquered Algebra I, Algebra II provides little diffi- culty, but problems really begin for Juniors who find Plane Geometry looming ahead. The principal purpose of Geometry is to develop one's reasoning power. After groping around in the dark for the vari- ous angles of the ever-present triangles, forever ending up behind the eight-ball of the circle, and finally proving that the diagonals of a parallelogram divide it Dave Filkins, Betty Eaton, and Nancy Grant demonstrate the various principles studied in Review Math. 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. One seldom realizes how much he has forgotten until taking a refresher course. A geometry theorem is little challenge for Gale Miller, Ted Nalwalk and Donnie O'Brien. Shirley Kochan attempts to find the elusive force of X.

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.

The study of sound often proves quite amusing as teachers have been known to present violin concerts in dem- onstration of vibration. Sci- ence, in all its forms, is an in- teresting and important field in the world of today and its contributions are invaluable. HISTORY 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- Irene Cehura and Elonise Pronowitz locate the great wheat fields of Kansas.

With final ele- vation to the Senior year, the study of American History continues from the time of President Lincoln to the present day. The Seniors civilize the West, divide it into states, wage war with Mexico, learn methods of bank- ing, and cross off the first and sec- ond World Wars. In addition to these courses, global geography is offered to Freshmen and Sopho- mores in the Commercial Course while Junior and Senior Commercial students struggle with Problems of Democracy. rw. ..............s .st-.f....-.--1-'vi ma mga-ul J I - w5lk.

Booster Day and Good Government Day are other instances where the students take over the clerical work. Occasionally the girls have an opportunity to act as assist- ants in the principaI's office as a phase of their training. All these experiences give the students good practice in applying the theories which they have learned in class. Each year five senior Pro Merito stu- dents from the Commercial Course are chosen to represent N.H.S. in Springfield at N.O.M.A.'s Educa- tion Day. It is easy to see why our students are so highly recognized and in demand. BUSINESS DEPARTMENT Each June graduation finds the local business and pro- fessional offices seeking the outstanding graduates of the Commercial Department of Northampton High School. Many of these students are employed by lawyers and insurance companies while many of the proficient bookkeeping stu- dents find their way into the local banks. What is it that 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 but also to those going on to college. Students in the Com- mercial Course gain actual experience by carrying on work connected with the high school's activities.

FRESHMAAICHGRUS Instead of using the halls as sounding boards, Freshmen are given the oppor- tunity of displaying their fine voices dur- ing weekly chorus in the auditorium. Cho- rus is required of all Freshmen with the hope that it will stimulate an interest in music which will last for four years. The large freshman enrollment in the music groups such as band and glee club proves this to be true. ART Probably the most relax- ing and enioyable of all hobbies is art. Frank La- Montagne, our artist, is proving iust this as he calm- ly paints a colorful farm scene in oils. a SPEECH Speech plays a very important part in our modern civilization and is rightly called the tool to success. Students at Northampton High School are often called upon to perform in assemblies as is John Fugiela, our speaker. In Speech class, study is given not only to the vocal organs which produce the sounds of speech but to the proper use of the language and the principles of parliamen- tary procedure.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION If one wishes to drop a few pounds or develop the biceps, Physical Education class pro- vides an excellent opportu- nity. By hopping the "horse," slugging the bag, and swing- ing on the parallel bars, one 4 . is able to accomplish these - goals. The highlight of the year for the "Phys Ed" girls is playing with an enormous ball which takes the strength of four people to lift. 59 DRIVER EDUCATION Diplomas are given to graduates of this course in the form of a small pink slip of paper. These "pink slips," good for ap- proximately two weeks, are then replaced by a regular license. During this course one hears such strange expressions as friction point, the H of the shifting rod, book of rules, and caution light. The pupils are sure of two things when they com- plete this course, "you can't fight fatigue," and "dirty windshields are the number one killer." Driver Education is under the pa- tient supervision of Coach "Cy" Connor, and the course graduates about forty stu- dents a year. -R 'f S. Baranowski. C. Howard, K. Barrows, M. Simeone, F.

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.

DEBATING This year's debating squad was formed early in October when the members of last year's champion- ship team met with Coach Bernard Donnelly to draw up plans for the debating season. The topic chosen for debate was one of timely interest, the subsidizing of higher education. The topic, stated specifically, was Resolved: That the Federal Government Should Guar- antee Higher Education to All Qualified High School Graduates Through Grants-in-aid to Colleges and Uni- versities. Early in December, Northampton played host to debating teams from all over Massachusetts for the X4 Coach Donnelly explains vital points to members C. August, L. Wolfe, and J.

PRO MERITO It is well known throughout the halls of N.H.S., that the fortunate few maintaining a "B or bet- ter" average, can expect to be excused from 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 reward for four years of faithful study to which the student may point with pride is the Pro Merito pin presented to all members at Com- mencement. 4,- tgNcusHA,5 FKENCHA I ERI O PHrs:fsA Cf0METR,VA PH U , I I ll ,, ..., .,-,,. g M ' V If X I C.

Under the supervision of Miss Thoms the Northamp- ton High School Thespian Society conducts two initia- tions yearly.

"Heaven Can Wait," a delightful fantasy, was presented as the fall production. "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay," the amusing experiences of Cornelia Otis Skinner was the spring produc- tion. Under the direction of Miss Thoms and with Donald Muzyka presiding as president, the group has convened three times this year.

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. Remember the Charleston?

MATH CLUB 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- 7 2J'5" 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.

THE BAND 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.

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.

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 Lynn. 81 And away we go! 4:1 j..

FOOTBALL 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.

I 3 Fox '7' Keane HOLYOKE 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. AGAWAM 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 Banner Baranowski end for 30 yards and a touchdown. Hamp's C' defense was exceptionally fine for it Z? stopped the Brownies twice within the 20- yard line. Diemand Turban Grinnell Foote vhs WEST SPRINGFIELD 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. GREENFIELD 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. Simeon: Foran Duseau Green Holyoke closes in. CHICOPEE 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. TECHNICAL 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. - .---- l Duseau misses hitting pay dirt. .J-x"e-.Ji'iL1 .L ' Enselek doing some healthy tackling. CATHEDRAL 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. WESTFIELD 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. Grinnell eluding the foe.

VARSITY BASKETBALL 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 Coach Richiedei 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.

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" Wilhelm, two mainstays of four seasons, finished their high school playing careers brilliantly.

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.

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- Weeny each scored one goal to send Springfield Tech to a 3-0 defeat.

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.

BASKETBALL Two wins-one over Dalton and the other over Turn- ers Falls-highlighted this year's record for the North- ampton High School Girls' Basketball team. Both of these wins were doubly sweet as they avenged pre- vious defeats. The complete record for the season was six wins and four defeats. Hamp started oFf the year by overwhelm- ing Deerfield and Ludlow by scores of 64-21 and 48-34 respectively. Journeying to Turners Falls for the third 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 points. Graduation again took its toll of the basketball team as the following seniors were lost: Co-captains Jill Hickling and Judy Shermeta, Diane Davies, Marion Descarage, Barbara Fungaroil, Judy Fusek, Barbara Touchette.

VARSITY Playing a nine game schedule the Girls' Junior Var- sity team compiled a record of six wins and three de- feats. ' - The Jay-Veers won each of their first three games by subduing Deerfield, Ludlow, and Turners Falls in that order. ln the fourth game Hamp met an over- powering Amherst sextet and went down to their first BASKETBALL field, however, they returned to their winning ways. In the next encounter the Turners' Juniors avenged the earlier Hamp victory by dumping the Hampers 26-'l9. The next two games were Hamp wins-against Dalton and Ludlow, but they ended the season with a loss to Amherst. Captain Sandy Carlson and Dottie Green were high- defeat. When the Hamp Juniors played host to Deer- scorers with 86 and 70 points respectively. SCORES Hamp Opponents 33 Deerfield ..... ...... l 9 51 Ludlow .................. 32 20 Turners Falls ..........

BASEBALL 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. SCORES 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 fourth win. In the last game of the season the Hamp nine met a favored Arms team at Kearny Field. This game proved to be an almost perfect carbon copy of the first Green- field-Hamp contest, except this time after ten innings, Hamp was on the long end of an 8-7 score.
