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- tainly earned. Rambler Staff Editor-in-Chief . .... ..

Student Councif 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.

Class Motto: Deeds, Not Words Class Colors: Maroon and White Class Flowers: Red and White Roses Class Adviser: Mr. Robert Pierce THE RAMBLER 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- amples. 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 fContinued on page 29.1 OU Ea 03 Nigga 4 bwgim WNHUENEQ rage?

Junior Prom 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. THE RAMBLER g Ne:- Front row fleft to rightj - Irene Hebert, Betty Hardaker, Pat Mazuzan. Sccmzd row - Millard Stranahan, Barbara Pregent, Mario Berno, Frances Palmer, Nina Perry. Third row - Alfred Ouel- lett, Dick Richardson, Gordon Merrit, Jeff Rumney, Bob Brassard. Senior Pfay 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 merriment. 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 THE RAMBLER 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 the undertaker. 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. Farmer's Ball 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- tertainment. 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. THE RAMBLER History - - - fContinued from page 18.1 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- man. 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. 1 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 Class 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.

Corridor Marshals 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 RAMBLER 4? X '5f0D-Q.JfDf"'ifND ',,f' . fx I 5 Top row, left to right - Phyllis Dismer, Joanne McGlafiin.

One-Act Plays 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- lington. 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. THE RAMBLER Ski Team 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 this meet. A couple of weeks later, at Bradford, Northfield High School won the Bradford Winter Carnival. A few of the boys competed in individual contests and placed very well. Letters were awarded to Co-Captains Millard Stranahan and Sonny Buck, Pat Sheppard, Henry Ferry, Robert Perra and Robert Manning.

Musical Organizations The musical organizations, under the capable leadership of Mrs. Whitney, had a very successful year. About 110 students in the combined glee clubs took part in the annual Christ- mas pageant. In the spring, the orchestra and glee clubs of Northiield and Randolph gave two concerts.
