MISS MYRTLE ROGERS
1 Z. Z.
We, the Class of 1950, wish to dedicate the Rambler
this year to our Commercial teacher and friend, Miss
Rogers. She has been a real help and constant source of
encouragement to us throughout our four years in North-
field High. This year marks her 30th year of teaching at
Northfield High School, and during that time she has been
constantly making new friends and endearing herself to
the hearts of her students and fellow teachers. She has
kept many a student on the road to success when he would
otherwise have fallen by the way.
To you, Miss Rogers, we say, "Thank you," and may
you soon enjoy that rest and vacation which you have cer-

The Student Council was organized under the able guidance of Mr. Crane. The
Council consisted of seven representatives from four classes - three from the senior
class, two from the junior, one from the sophomore, and one from the freshman. Max
Templeton was elected chairman and Pat Mazuzan secretary.
During the course of the year the Council set up a school calendar which listed
the activities each class was allowed. It also took charge of the assemblies that were
held every two Weeks. Room inspections were made twice a week and a plaque was
given to Miss Wellington's sophomore homeroom in recognition of the excellent condi-
tion of the room. The Council also corresponded with surrounding schools to get sugges-
tions as to the organizing of the freshman handbook.
The work of this group has helped the faculty and the student body uphold the
fine traditions of Northfield High School and make it a better school.

Senior Class History
Our first recollection of Northfield High School was Sub-Freshman Day in the
spring of '46, when we were marshalled through its doors for the first time and made to
feel welcome by Principal N. Richard Butler, the faculty, and some of the members of
the slightly superior classes, whom we were soon to learn to respect and follow as ex-
Never will be forgotten the wonderful pep talk delivered to us by Mr. Butler as
he tried to prepare us for our next few years, three-fourths of which was to be spent at
N. H. S. trying to gather knowledge and wisdom from our often exasperated teachers.
As freshmen, we didn't quite grasp the meaning of it all, but we have had four long
years to think it over and most of us have realized that our education has contributed
much to starting us out with our best foot forward.
The first big step that fall was getting acquainted with each other and electing
class officers, under the supervision of Mrs. Brown, our class adviser. The person to
hold the honored position as first president of the Class of '50 was Robert. Brassard, who
led our class very ably for two years. Other class ofiicers were vice president, Marjorie
Gifiing secretary, Connie Sargent, and treasurer, Irene Hebert.
We did not contribute much to the social activities that first year, as we were
too busy getting settled and learning the routine we were to live by for the next three
years. We did win the one-act play contest, due to the careful coaching of Mrs. Brown
and the talented acting of some of the members of our class.
That same spring we bade a sorrowful farewell to our principal, Mr. Butler,
who left to accept a better position in his teaching professiong but the next fall, we glad-
ly welcomed Mr. George Allison, who took over the difficult, but successful task of put-
ting us through our next two years of absorbing knowledge at Northfield High.
As sophomores, we presented the Freshman Reception, one of our most suc-
cessful undertakings of the year. Our only other enterprises of the year were a few
small school dances and parties, where a group of students danced to the music of the
ever-popular phonograph and filled up on sandwiches and other eats furnished by the
various committees. The reason fa vain onej, of these shindigs was to increase the de-
pleted class treasury.
We began the second half of this era as juniors, with class officers as follows:
president, Max Templetong vice president, Pat Mazuzang secretary, Randall Bell, treas-
urer, Hazel Greenslit.
We were pretty happy that year, having only one superior class above usg and
we joined more in the social activities. The highlight of them all was our presentation of
the Junior Prom, which, after much hard work and planning, was judged as one of the
best in many years. Music was furnished by the Catamounts. Many days of labor and
neglected school work had been put into this unique activity, but we felt it was worth it
after hearing the remarks of our classmates and other citizens of the town who had
patronized the Prom.
Also, that same spring, as successors to the Senior Class, we put out our first
issue of the school paper, "Rambles," with Max Templeton as editor, Hazel Greenslit as

The greatest event in the history of our class was our lavish Junior Prom pre-
sented Friday, May 13, 1949.
With the ideas for decorations based on superstitions, the Co. F Armory was
gaily decked with balloons, crepe paper and confetti. To gain admittance each couple
was obliged to walk under a ladder and separate at a bread and butter post. The faculty
section was entered through a huge decorated horseshoe gateway.
"GOOD LUCK, 49ers" was hung above the orchestra-each letter covered with
small, hand-made shamrocks. In the center, tossing colors over all the room and add-
ing splendor to the highly decorated hall, a crystal ball was suspended. This ball was
hung directly above our prize attraction, a beautifully decorated wishing well
At midnight the U. V. M. Catamounts were interrupted by the unsuspected
downfall of balloons and confetti which, unfortunately, dropped with more force and
rapidity than had been expected.
Shortly before 1:00 A. M., weary but still inspired seniors and other dancers
helped themselves to the sagging streamers.
Since then, the Junior Prom of '49 has been considered one of the most mem-
orable events in the history of Northfield High School.

Pretty Carol Colloway fPat Mazuzanb is in a desperate situation as head of a
family of eccentrics! Sister Ione CBetty Hardakerb has gone ga-ga over psychiatry!
Little brother Sid fRandall Bellj is crazy for "shoot-'em-up" gangster films and comic
books! Aunt Eunice fHazel Greenslitj is an easy prey for phony mediums and occult-
ists! And then Carol Colloway inherits an old haunted farmhouse, to which she moves
her family immediately. How each member becomes cured of his phobia on one wild,
stormy March evening, forms the plot of this hilarious farce. The haunting of a blood-
spattered, head-bandaged ghost, the appearance of a ferocious gangster fRichard Rich-
ardsonl and an escaped maniac flrene Hebertb, all delightfully chilled the spines of the
spectatorsg while the hysterical antics of the jittery maid, Allie Katz fBarbara Pre-
gentl, and the lisping Dicky Bird 1Richard Richardsonb, moved them to screams of
laughter. Other characters included Minerva Hawkwood fNina Perryj, the mournful
housekeeperg her daffydil nephew, the crippled Benjy fGordon Merritlg Rex Rosner
fAlfred OuellettJ, a young plastic surgeongand Clemuel McClatchin fBob Brassardb,
an eerie undertaker! The third act revealed that the blood-curdling happenings were
not genuine, and the play had a surprise ending which sent the audience into gales of
The play opened in the old haunted house late at night. Carol and her family
are just arriving and Minerva is trying to make them feel at home in her own way. They
soon turn to the subject of ghosts and she tells them of a man killed in this house many
years ago. She says he was murdered with a red-hot poker by his half-crazy wife, who
is now in the insane asylum on the other side of the hill. His eye, which the wife put
out during one of her spells, is preserved in a jar on the mantle. This man Hugo now
haunts the house, and whenever he is near, they can smell him, for he has a horrid scorch-
ing odorg and the lights go out as he passes them. You can imagine their state of mind
when this happens and Clemuel, the undertaker, is strangled and then dragged out by
the half-Witted son of the housekeeper.
The next frightful experience is the entrance of the maniac, Gerda, and her
near-murder of Carol. Gerda, also, it killed by the unseen murderer. Rex appears on
the spot now and succeeds in discovering a secret panel from which topples the corpse of
After Dicky Bird and Sid almost got shot by a gangster, the play comes to an
end when the hoax Carol and Rex and Dicky Bird are acting for the benefit of Eunice,
Sid and Ione breaks up. Gerda, Clem, Minerva and Benjy are found to be peaceful oc-
cupants of this house, only playing along with Carol and Rex in trying to cure Carol's
family of their eccentricities. Incidentally, Sid and Ione were entirely cured. But Aunt
Eunice - perhaps? !
This play, "Spooks and Spasms," was presented by the Class of '50 under the
skillful direction of Miss Wellington, with Millard Stranahan as stage manager and
Jeff Rumney as electrician. Marie Berno and Francis Palmer were prompters.
It was given on November 4, 1949, at Norwich Armory and proved to be a
highly successful and memorable event.
On Thursday, November 10, 1949, the Senior Class gave the annual and long-
awaited Farmer's Ball. With an extremely limited amount of time, the highly en-
thused seniors Went to work decorating the stage with month-old newspaper and color-
ful comic strips. The arbor, or rather, the Well named the "Passion Pit," was done in
a gala of black and orange crepe paper, and banked with shoddy cornstalks, pumpkins
and summer squash. Constalks, long-barreled rifles, cob pipes and straw hats, plus gal-
lons of sweet cider and a multitude of home-made doughnuts added to the attractive en-
The spirit of bygone days was there, thanks to Rogers' Rhythm Makers, who
supplied hilarious as Well as energetic square dancing. Waltzes and round dancing added
to the mardi gras of gaiety, and all agreed that the Farmer's Ball was its usual success.

assistant editor, and an organized group of workers to help in keeping the reputation of
the good work started by Mrs. Rowe and the Class of '48. We weren't too proud of our
first issue, but each one was improved a little more and we soon felt justified for all the
time and effort spent on the "Rambles"
Once again we welcomed a new principal, Mr. Lloyd Crane, who was of never-
ending value in guiding us through our last busy months before graduation.
We also feel an everlasting gratitude to Mr. Pierce, our senior class adviser,
who willingly gave us a greatshare of his endless store of knowledge and in every way
possible prepared us for our future careers.
Our class oflicers remained unchanged this year except for John Diego, who re-
placed Pat Mazuzan as vice president, with Pat stepping into the job of secretary. Her
predecessor, Randall Bell, was chosen for the difiicult and important task of social chair-
One of our greatest successes of this last happy year was a superb presentation
of the Senior Play, "Spooks and Spasms," a mystery farce furnishing much laughter,
horror and thrills, with the characters as follows: Randall Bell, Bob Brassard, Hazel
Greenslit, Betty Hardaker, Irene Hebert, Pat Mazuzan, Gordon Merrit, Alfred Ouellett,
Nina Perry, Barbara Pregent and Richard Richardson. Marie Berno and Frances Palmer
acted as prompters, with Millard Stranahan as stage manager and J eff Rumney as elec-
trician. A large audience attended and funds were added to our depleted class treasury.
Another enterprise bestowed on Northfield by the senior class was the Farm-
ers' Ball, which was a success socially, but not financially, for the only profit we re-
ceived was happiness at adding to the good spirits of our classmates. This event took
place on Friday, the thirteenth, and the hall was trimmed accordingly with black cats
and funny papers adorning the walls. A couple of underclassmen had the task of guid-
ing the "unwilling" couples into the arbor. For music we had the Rogers' Rhythm Mak-
ers, who helped us in making the students happy and dancing smooth. Refreshments
of doughnuts and cider were served.
The next excellent example of the ingenuity of the Class of '50 was the Scaven-
ger Hunt, which proved another source of income for our class funds.
We chose Pat Mazuzan as editor-in-chief of the "Rambler" and Randall Bell
as assistant editor, with a hard working group of associate editors and other staff mem-
bers backing them. Our yearbook, the "Rambler," is the last project of the Senior
When we graduate this June, we will do so with the realization that we have
spent a happy four years at Northfield High School acquiring knowledge and gaining
many friends - assets which will always be with us.

The corridor marshals should be congratulated for the great Work they volun-
teered to do for their school this year. The students should also be congratulated for
the way they cooperated with the marshals.
As some people do not realize the extent of the responsibility placed on the mar-
shals, We will endeavor to make it clear. They are not just ornamentsg the marshals all
do a special job. Their job is to keep the traiiic of the students in as orderly a state as
possible. Their duty is similar to that of a policeman when he keeps traffic going the
right Way. The marshals help students pass from class to class quickly and quietly.
They stand by the doors, stairs and other places where there are many stu-
dents passing at the same time. At the small door, large door, foot of the stairs, and in
the upstairs hall, the corridor marshals are always on the job to do their duty, and Work
for the safety of everyone. Sometimes it is necessary for a marshal to speak to her best
friends, and she does so for t.he best interests of all.
This year the marshals were provided with shoulder straps of maroon and
white, the school colors. This was to make them outstanding and better recognized by
the students. Also, the shoulder straps were an award for loyalty.
In conclusion, let us say that the success of the corridor marshals has been due
to cooperation by all - students and faculty alike.

Northfield High started off the '49-'50 basketball season with a new coach and
seven lettermen. The outlook was good for the boys in maroon and they began the season
by defeating Montpelier High twice.
There were several close games during the season, with Northfield showing ex-
cellent play both offensively and defensively. In the regular season, when Northfield
played St. Mike's at Norwich, the boys in maroon found themselves eleven points be-
hind at the official time out. Northfield then staged their biggest rally of the season to
come out on top, 29-27.

The annual one-act play contest was held at the Norwich Armory, April 27,
1950. The Senior Class presented a drama, "The Valiant," coached by Miss Ethel Wel-
Under the able direction of Miss Elizabeth Snell and Mr. Brew, the Junior
Class presented a hilarious comedy entitled, "Ada Gives First Aid."
Another comedy was presented by the Sophomore Class, entitled, "I'm a Fool,"
coached by Miss Esther Ballard.
A group of Freshmen presented 'their first play, "His First Shave," another
comedy. Mr. Merton Ashton and Miss Lorette Lapolice acted as coaches.
As we go to press, the outcome of the contest has not been determined.
Due to a lack of snow cover, the activities of the ski team were necessarily cur-
tailed this season.
During January the team went to the district meet held in Lyndonville. A 'third
place in this meet enabled them to compete in the State meet at Middleburyg however,
because of the loss of one of their star competitors, the team managed only a seventh in

HPROTECTING THE AMERICAN HOME"
In early New England, a bell was a luxury that few schools
could afford. Often, students were warned of approaching classes
by the booming notes of a conch shell, sounded by a stout-winded
Modern equipment and methods have replaced the conch shell,
as well as many other features of yesterday's educationg t0day's
graduate is the best educated, best equipped ever.
National Life congratulates the class of 19505 we have every
confidence that your background fits you to face the problems
ahead. The future belongs to you.

Get in the Guard - -
And get the opportunity of a lifetime to serve yourself as you serve your
country. Young men, 17 to 34 years old, can take part-time military train-
ing - at home - in the New National Guard without giving up their jobs
or their education. You can wear the same uniform, use the same modern
equipment, get the same rates of pay as the Regular Army and Air Force.
And as you add to your civilian income in a fighting outfit, you can also
qualify for retirement pay at no cost to you. What's more, you can ad-
vance as rapidly as you increase your skill, even become a commissioned
officer. Get the facts, then Get in the Guard.

Military instruction, practice and discipline are required of all
cadets throughout their stay in college, in faith that a citizen is not
fully equipped for his duty to the State unless he is trained for ser-
vice in its defense as well as for its upbuilding. The story of our
Nation's struggles for existence justifies this faith.
