The Student Council began the year by being hosts to members of the Eastern Connecticut Federation of Student Councils, at Stonington. Twelve Schools sent'96 representatives to this con- vention. Miss Irene Traggis, a former member of our Student Council, was our guest speaker. Her topic was "Student Councils, Here and Abroad." In preparation for the Evaluation Committee, the Student Council made a survey of graduates for the past three years regarding employment and types of employment. Council representatives attended a meeting of the Federation of Student Councils held at Fitch High School, April 3. Samuel Lamb was elected Vice-President of the East- Forty ern Connecticut Federation, succeeding George Bar- den. One joint meeting with the Fitch High School Stu- dent Council was held at Fitch in March, and another joint meeting was held at Stonington, April 15. This last meeting consisted of a business meeting, entertain- ment, supper and dancing. At the concert, April 26, Student Council members acted as ushers and handled programs and tickets. A meeting of the Rhode,Island Division held at Westerly High School, in May, was attended by our representatives. The Council is now working on a point system to govern extra-curricula activities for next year, and also revising the present constitution. Q' ts' . . xi .

The Biology Club, one of the most active and suc- cessful in the Stonington High School, is now in its fifth year of existence. The applicants for membership have increased so rapidly each year that it is now necessary to pass an examination in order to become a member. 'The club has a membership of approximately fifty students. The purpose of this club is to combine work with pleasure. When club members go hiking, under the supervision of Faculty Adviser Mr. joseph Gordon, they learn many useful and interesting things about nature. Plants and insects are found and carried back to the school for future study. They also take motion pictures which are developed at school and then shown to the student body. The club members have enjoyed several trips to New York City where they visited the American Muse- um of Natural History and the Planetarium. These trips have been extremely benehcial to the students. We hope that the traditions of this club will be car- ried on by our underclassmen in the spirit in which it was intended.

From the above picture, you will note that the female of the species is in the minority. Destroying the laws of popular choice, the boys "rule the roost" this year in our club. Members of all French classes are prom- inent in both the club and its literary output, the French paper "Ca et La", a picture Hlled, artistic sheet entirely written in French. In December, a Carol singing party was held in the Stonington borough which was enjoyed both by the members and the townspeople who were serenaded. In February, a Mardi Gras Costume festival dis- played brilliant and comical costumes during the eve- ning's entertainment. Probably the most enjoyable event of the year is our all day picnic. The club, capably handled by its fac- ulty adviser Miss Mary A. Nania, is assured a growing membership. Forty4Three . Q ' -r. S 'fe , , 3 b 91.1. ' A xfnl 'RBS - 14 .- TJG -R -v 4 K-. .tg - I. .

At Christmas, the combined Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs put on a skit written by Mr. Pupillo. The Boys' Glee Club sang for special assemblies and for survey guests. This year the Glee Clubs gave their second annual concert on April 26. It was as big a success as last year s. Fu In addition to the straight musical concert, the Glee Clubs last year put on a short musical play telling the life of Stephen Foster. The Girls' Sextet and the Boys Quartet were also active last year. This year the Sextetes have made several appearances this spring at functions away from school and at the school. They also took part in the spring concert and had a large part in the gradua- tion music. We predict their continued success in the future. rty-liight hx. :xv fv s X - 5,14-927 I , 1, 0. f . - A hd yyff ' af 4 'If "N 'lrji' 'I-rf: ,, M My ,,f--.ieggfr-we-A'-,. t.

The orchestra this year is composed of a large group of talented students. Since last year the organization has increased greatly in number, being provided with musically minded students who had formerly displayed their ability in the grammar school orchestra formed and directed by Miss Marion Fuller. Appearing publicly for the first time this year at the competitive plays on April 5, they proved to be a group which Stonington High School can be proud of. At the annual Spring Concert presented by the Musi- cal Department and conducted by Miss Fuller, the or- chestra again made an appearance and this time was even more highly praised for the excellent presenta- tions of classical selections, The Evaluation Commitee was entertained by the group in an assembly prepared by the Speech Arts De- partment and the Musical Department. At Commencement exercises the orchestra played an important part in the program. We hope that the orchestra will continue to progress in the future and afford us more excellent entertain- ment as it has in the past.

CHEER LEADERS Miss Mary Mullaney, Lillian Edgar, Eleanor Hauschild, Margaret Barnes, Ann Robinson, Amy Savin. In characteristic fashion Stonington High opens its football season with a "Bang." At this time of year, you will find standing in readiness the Cheer Squad. This group, upon which much of the success of the game depends, does its utmost in buoying the spirits of our players, and helps to make the game more thrill- ing for the spectators. Under the able supervision of Miss Mary Mullaney, faculty adviser, these girls are trained in the true Ston- ington High School spirit, and only those best able of carrying on the spirit of the school are selected. This year this active squad consists of Margaret Barnes, Eleanor Hauschild, Lillian Edgar, Amy Savin and Ann Robinson. The girls look forward to the honor of cheering at Westerly and other out of town games, also the excit- ing and profitable flood-light games. Stonington High can be very proud of her active and attractive brown and white clad figures. Best of luck in the following year! Fifty-One Mnnurd..

H- 5 I A DRAMATICS Shyly and somewhat self consciously the student body, this year, found itself in awe of a rich and regally magnificient auditorium. Immediately, under the leadership of Mr. Pupillo, activity was begun, and now as we look back on our first year in the dramatic field we feel that we have at least given the future students a start in that direc- tion of student activity. On February second, the Senior class presented "Death Takes A Holiday," for their annual play. The play, a mysterious three act melodrama directed by Mr. Pupillo, was warmly received by local audiences. The cast included William Pendleton, Ronald Bishop, Bet- sey Butt, james Donahue, Mary Swokla, Helen Kelli- her, Edgar Farnell, Wilfred McShane, Albert Palmer, jane Morrison, Ann Robinson, Margaret Barnes and Walter Reid. The stage crew consisted of: Lillian Ed- gar, music: Emily Dennehey, lights: Claire Thavenet, prompter: George Hallett, George Boucher, Alden Greene, scenery: Miss Mary K. Cogan, setting. The play was a marked success and was repeated on March first. During the last weeks of March, secretive, myster- ious rehearsals were held by individual groups in each of the upper classes. They bore fruit on the evening of April lifth--the Competitive plays! The Sophomore class won a gold placque with their winning presentation. "Willie's Lie Detector," a farce in one act. Directed by Miss M. Mullaney, the cast in- cluded Walter Bousa, Beverly Truss, john Lathrop, T' . -. t "J F j Q 4' Sylvia Dimock, Grace Schiller, jack Cusack and Elean- or Wylie. The play, unanimously chosen the winner by the three judges, afforded mirth and laughter from the large audiences. The competition presented by the juniors took form in a Harlequinade, "The Wonder Hat." Miss Mary A. Nania directed Donald Peabody, Claire Thavenet, Charles White, Samuel Lamb and Evelyn Nichols. A new backdrop was made for this comedy which added to a ggrowing collection of stage scenery. Miss Grace Carlson supervised the Seniors in a Gypsy comedy, "Romany Chi." Amy Savin, Eugene Melanson, Helen Kelliher, Wilfred McShane and james Donahue formed the cast. The plays and the glee clubs and orchestra that performed between acts merited applause. Weekly assemblies presented by the faculty were highlights in our weekly curriculum. These were as- signed by Mr. Lane. Programs concerning minstrels, heavy drama, scientific experiments, movies, comedies, a fashion show, and an ancient Roman farce completed a year of entertaining Friday afternoons. Our one dramatic class is Speech Arts, taught by Mr. Pupillo. A year of intensive work to make up for lost time turned out better speaking voices and students who recognize and will be able to portray emotions. Our first year in the theatre was a success and pre- dicts that in the future this department will be among our shining lights. Fifty-Three Tous?

This year's team, coached by Mr. Michael Cronin with the capable assistance of Mr. Pupillo and Mr. Hanley, is a proof of the excellent work that Mr, Cronin has been accomplishing as our football coach. The Bears scored one hundred seven points com- pared with thirteen points for the opposition. No op- ponent scored on Stonington through the line. The 1959 team defeated Windham, Bulkeley, West- erly twice, Fitch twice, tied Chapman Tech and suffered their lone defeat at the hands of Norwich Free Acad- emy. As a result of this splendid record with Windham, Bulkeley, Tech and Norwich, class A schools, The Bears not only won their second consecutive Eastern Con- necticut Conference title but were also awarded the Class B Championship of the State of Connecticut. Individual honors also went to members of this championship team. Captain Benny Helme was award- ed a position on the All State High School Football team, the first time that a Stonington player received this honor. Sharing honors with Benny on the All Conference team were "Walt" Reid and "Sweet-Pea" Lathrop. The Bears inaugurated night football at Stonington in their season's opener against Windham. Stoning- ton overcame their rivals by a twenty to nothing -score as Reid, Cassell and Watts registered touchdowns. Two of these scores resulted from touchdown passes thrown by Captain Benny Helme. Two successful placements by Fred Hermes added the two extra points. At Norwich, the Bears suffered their only loss when they fell before a strong N. F. A. eleven. S. H. S. bat- tled their heavier opponents on equal terms but lost when a Norwich pass play carried over fifty yards to give the home boys a six to nothing win. The next week found the Bears invading Mercer Field, New London. Stonington kept Bulkeley from advancing and came home with a seven to nothing vic- tory when George Cassell scored a touchdown in the second period, Fred Hermes added the point. Stonington followed this with a twenty to nothing victory over Fitch in a night game played at our Ath- letic Field. "Benny" Helme scored two touchdowns and "Danny" Souza the other. Capt. Helme and "Bill" Perry added two extra points on lateral pass plays. This success left only Chapman Tech between the Bears and their second consecutive Conference title. S. H. S. and Tech met in this all important clash at the Stonington Athletic Field. The Bears dominated the play in the first half but were less powerful in the second half before a rejuvenated Tech team. The final whistle found both teams in a scoreless deadlock. Be- cause of this game, the Bears and Tech tied for first place in the Eastern Connecticut Conference. Stoning- ton was the only team in the conference to keep their opponents from scoring on them in conference play. On Armistice Day the Bears had little trouble in downing Westerly at Craig Field in Westerly. The Bears were aided in their scoring by Westerly's fum- bling in their own territory. Walt Reid, converted from end to a backfield post, scored the first touch- down. Capt. "Benny" Helme threw a touchdown pass to "Danny" Souza for the second score and registered the third touchdown when he broke through the center of the Westerly line and raced sixty-three yards for the score. "Danny" Souza scored the final Stonington touchdown. Ferd Hermes added an extra point by means of a placement kick. Late in the last period a successful Westerly pass gave the Bulldogs six points, they also added the extra point. The final score was: Stonington, twenty-five, Westerly, seven. Following the Westerly game, Stonington downed Fitch twenty-two to nothing. Captain "Benny" Helme was responsible for two of the Bears' touchdowns, the third came from a pass thrown by "Benny" to "Bill" Perry. Hermes added two extra points and the Bears stopped a Fitch ball carrier in his end zone for a safety and two points. The Bears closed their season in a blaze of glory by downing their ancient rivals Westerly, on Thanks- giving Day, at the Athletic Field. By this victory, the. Bears made it five in a row and took a twenty-one to eighteen lead in football victories. "Walt" Reid scored the first Bear's touchdown and Hermes added the extra point. The Bears' final score for the year was registered by Captain "Benny" Helme in the last quarter. The try for point was blocked. One of the features of the game was a spiral punt that Captain "Benny" Helme kicked from his own ten yard line to the Westerly twenty yard marker. The kick covered sixty yards on the fly from the line of scrimmage. The game ended with Stonington the victor, thirteen to nothing. We could write pages about this great Stonington team. It was not only a stubborn defensive club but also a brilliant offensive eleven. Lettermen on this championship team are: Captain "Benny" Helme, Ed- win Lathrop, Walter Reid, Fred Hermes, Daniel Sou- za, William Perry, George Cassell, David Noble, Mau- rice Orlando, Albert Palmer, Richard Williams, Edgar Farnell, William Victoria, Harry jones, john Lom- bardo and Manager, George Barden. All these boys graduate with the class of 1940. Returning lettermen will be john Guekel, Earl Calkins, Peter Francis and Captain-elect Lawrence Anderson. With these four lettermen as a nucleus, Coach Cron- in will have to begin again and build his 1940 club from the boys who worked hard as this year's reserves. We wish him the best of luck and hope he will pro- duce a greater team than his 1939 championship club. Fifty-Seven -'xt .f-V .fe-.s,, - - Q, -it g T -1 df..

Second row-Samuel Miceli, Vincegt Sullivan, Walter Rasmussen. Donald Peabody, Charles White, joseph Gomes, George Berube, james Christeno, Neil Mackenzie, Michael Mazzarella, Edmund Ravenelle. Third row-Coach T. Allen Crouch, Manager Eugene Melanson. Keeping up the interest that Stonington High School has in sports, about twenty-live boys answered Coach T. Allen Crouch's call for cross county candidates. This was one of the largest squads Mr. Crouch has ever had. The Bears opened their season by participation in the lnterscholastics at Storrs. Stonington hnished seventh in a field that included six class A schools and three class B schools. Captain Louis Lattimore hnished ninth to lead the Stonington team to the tape. On October twelfth, the Bears were hosts to Bulke- ley High for their first dual meet of the season which the Stonington boys lost by a thirty-seven to eighteen score. Farrar of Bulkeley led the runners home and established the course record when he covered the dis- tance in ten minutes and thirty seconds. Cantain Louis Lattimore, coming in third, was the first Stonington runner to finish. October seventeenth found the Bears bowing to a strong Westerly High team by a thirty-eight to seven- teen score. Captain Louis Lattimore was the hrst S. H. S. man to place, coming in fourth. The S. H. SQ harriers next played host to Chapman Tech and defeated them by a twenty-five to thirty score. Captain Louis Lattimore came in first. ' Following their second loss to a strong Westerly team, the Stonington High School harriers registered their second victory of the 1939 season by defeating Norwich Free Academy nineteen to thirty-six on the local course. Captain Lattimore led the teams to the tape with john Lombardo close behind in second place. The 1939 cross country team closed their season by placing third in the Eastern Connecticut League meet held at Norwich, Connecticut. Captain Louis Latti- more, leading the Bears for the last time, finished in third place behind two Bulkeley runners. Farrar of Bulkeley won the event and Bulkeley, the meet. Following the close of the season, the Bears had a buffet lunch and entertainment in the cafeteria. After the lunch, john Lombardo was elected captain and Charles White, manager, of the 1940 team. Lettermen of this 1939 team are Captain Louis Lattimore, john Lombardo, George Berube, William Kiddy, Robert Kenyon, Vincent Sullivan, james Nu- gro, Charles Holland and Eugene Melanson, manager. With the interest shown in 1939, plus the fact that all the lettermen except Louis Lattimore will be avail- able next year, the 1940 cross country season has an exceptionally bright outlook. - ' ' r ' ' s I 1 'wrw ' as -s, -. f .. ,- yy, " - 4 X . -, ' X lb ts ' -' ' rl I --Q - sy.

As a result, Stoning- ton High School was represented for the hrst time since 1932 by a varsity basketball team. Although ,the season was not a successful one, the team showed im- provement in every contest they played until the end of the year. Over forty boys answered Coach Gordon Merkel's call for basketball candidates. Mr. Merkel was new to the Stonington High faculty, coming here to teach Phy- sical Education and Science. Of the forty boys, only one had had any kind of experience in basketball play- ing. Thus it was that Coach Merkel had to teach the fundamentals of the game to his squad. Mr. Merkel hnally cut the squad to hfteen boys in order to be better able to work with them. The squad was outhtted in uniforms and basketball shoes that are on a par with the equipment of any of the local high schools. The Bears played seven games with local hign schools and two games with the faculty. The schedule included two games each with XVesterly, Fitch and Norwich Free Academy on a home and home basis. The other game was played with Fisher's Island High School of New York, at home. The Bears opened their season with a game against the Faculty Five and bowed by a thirty-two to twenty- seven score before a more experienced team. The start- ing lineups found "Bud" Brophy and "Eddie" Hazlin, who was later elected to captain of the 1939-40 team in a mid-season election, at the forwards, "Bob" Shea at center and "Marsey" Smith and "joe" Piccolo at the guard positions. For the faculty, Mr. Hanley, Mr. Pupillo, Mr. Walker, Mr. Belisle, Mr. Gordon, Mr. Foley, Mr. Griffin and Mr. Cawley, local newspaper sports writer, participated. The following week, on December twenty-first, the S. H. S. cagers formally dedicated the new gymnasium with Westerly High School as an opponent. The Bears were swamped by a great Westerly High team. Following this game, the Bears bowed to Norwich Free Academy, away, Fitch, at home, Westerly, away, Norwich, at home, Fisher's Island High School of New York, at home and Fitch, away, in that order. The Bears showed improvement in each succeeding contest, however, and were able to close their season with a victory over the same Faculty Five that had downed them in the opening game of the season. In this last game, the Bears took the lead on the opening whistle and kept it throughout the contest to take a forty-four to thirty decision from the Faculty Five. Lettermen on this 1939-40 team are: Captain Ed- ward Hazlin, Charles Brophy, Robert Shea, joseph Pic- colo, Maurice Smith, Albert Palmer, Daniel Souza, and james Donahue, Manager. Coach Merkel will have joseph Piccolo, who is the captain-elect of the 1940-1941 team, and Robert Shea returning, along with several members of the 1939-1940 jayvee team. Add to these the boys who have had experience play- ing basketball during gymnasium periods and Coach Merkel will be better able to put a team on the floor in 1940 that will improve the 1939-1940 record.
