That was Stonington, in nineteen forty-four- A year we'll remember forever more. Before very long we banded together And forged ahead, united, in all kinds of weather. Newbury, Simonelli and Furey were our voice For they became the leaders by our choice. The honor roll soon told who our brains would be, While our first talent showed at assembly. Many clubs and teams we joined, as well we oughtg To our freshman party we gave great support. As sophs in forty-five we started Feeling important and light-hearted. Along with Phil and Norman this time we elected Officers Buchanan and Lesniewski from those selected. Soon our new North Stoningtoners arrived galore, Among them Janice, the star of "The Opening of the Door." Plans for our Soph Hop were soon started And 'fore we knew it the year had departed. While courageous students traffic posts were taking Our fine spirited cheerleaders were in tne making. Many athletes from among us arose. Next, our gold class rings we chose. In forty-six the backbone of the school were we- A fact we decided to make plain to see. Phil and Norman would lead us again, we knew, Haupt and Fallon were made officers, too. For many high marks, eight students were well paid- Members of the National Honor Society they were made. With a fine cast of players this year it was done Our competitive play "The High Window" won. A group of hard working juniors soon Made everything ready for our prom in june. King Phil and Queen jane, and the court of ladies in white, Were fine to behold as they marched that night. Now it was here, our Senior year at last. To accomplish much before the year passed We worked really hard, settled right down, Knowing too well June soon would come round. Newbury was our president once more, Simonelli, Haupt and Ostman made the four, Faculty adviser, Mr. Foley was made And many fine plans then were laid. With fine eager spirits, Ballestracci and the rest All worked hard to make our yearbook the best. For our Senior Prom we worked with a will, And made it a dance we remember still. With our competitive play we toiled then for we Hoped again this year the winners to be. On our Washington trip we went, and then We knew our last year was nearing its end. To a Flunk Day picnic went we With our spirits as high as could be. Then we realized our senior year had passed, For assembled were we on class day, at last. Then it came, the saddest day of all In our caps and gowns we stood straight 'n' tall. With diplomas in hand, we left with a sigh, We, of forty-eight, were now alumni.

FOOTBALL The l47 football team enjoyed a fair season com- posed of three victories, six defeats, and one tie. The Bears opened their season by participating in the round robin held on the Norwich Free Acad- emy campus. The north team composed of Ston- ington, Fitch, and Chapman Tech defeated the south team made up of Norwich, Bulkeley, and Killingly, by a score of 37-34. The Bears scored once against Bulkeley and were held scoreless by Norwich. Opening the regular season's schedule the Brown and White traveled to Middletown where the Class A champs bowled over our boys by a score of 21-0. Bulkeley provided the opposition on the follow- ing Friday night in the opening Conference game played before 6,500 people at Mercer Field. The Bears did everything but push Bulkeley right out of the ball park but fell victim to a bad break in the second quarter and were defeated 6-0. The Brown and White broke into the winning column by soundly trouncing Windham 18-0 with Page sixty- a terrific second half drive featured by the running of Dick Hanley and Milt Kieburg. Kieburg's 55 yard scoring sprint in this game was one of the highlights of the season. Our boys continued on the victory trail the following week by defeating Robert E. Fitch 28-12. The Bears turned on a be- lated fourth quarter surge that netted two touch- downs and dazzled the Tanagers so completely that they were hanging on the ropes at the game's end. Farnell was the outstanding performer in this game. A surge of overconfidence proved costly to the Bears as they were upset by underdog Norwich 13-0. Regaining stride after this defeat S.H.S. came up with their best performance of the season and edged powerful Chapman Tech 6-0. Dick Han- leyls 23 yard sprint in the fourth quarter provided the margin of victory. The star-studded Alumni were too strong a foe for the Bears to overcome and although they per- formed well were defeated 14-0. two FOOTBALL SQUAD FIRST ROW-left to right-Mr. Cronin, Edwin North- up, Lawrence Clay, joseph Lidestri, William McCarroll, Richard Buck, Noyes Farnell, Francis Cella, john Souza, Richard Fritz, Anthony Antoch, William Perkins, Philip Newbury, Richard Hanley.

SECOND ROW-Charles Holly, joseph Adams, Ralph Horn, john Lowe, David Lewis, Gary Bill, Donald Bach- and, Alfred White, joseph Italiano, Henry Bolduc, Don- ald Podziewski, Milton Kieburg, William Watson, james Wrrtson, john Garity. THIRD ROW-Glenn Bates, Charles Pearce, Leonard Billard, trouncing us 32-0, was the only team that really outclassed Stonington. The Westerly games, high points of the season, were both hard fought contests. The first one on Armistice Day ended in a 6-6 tie with Westerly holding a slight edge in statistics. The Bears scored in the hrst three minutes of play with Capt. Noyes Farnell going 25 yards off left tackle for the score. Westerly came right back and scored on Nigrellil' 66 yard jaunt. Both points were blocked and the rest of the game was played between the 30-yard stripes. The Thanksgiving Day game was the most thrill- ing game of the season. The action seesawed back and forth but nobody scored until the third quar- ter when the Bulldogs scored on two runs by Ni- grelli. Big Walter jammed across the point which Brennan, Howard Chase. William Lamoureaux, George Miner, Angelo Serio, Anthony Rocha, Gerald McKenna, Frank Miceli, Robert Imdahl, Donald Lewis, joseph Potter. FOURTH ROW-james Smith, William Barker, Clifford Clark, joseph jones, Lawrence Delaney, William Lewis, Ronald Wilkinson, Frank Dolce, Amos Banks, Samuel Perrone, Lawrence Burridge, Michael Riley, Frederick Popson, Donald Banker, Robert Gilmore, joseph Piver, Stephen Saunders. was the deciding factor. The Bears stormed back in the fourth quarter and with Dick Hanley pro- viding the spark marched 90 yards to a touchdown in three plays. Hanley completed a 53 yard pass to Bill Watson which placed the ball on the West- erly 40, an end run carried to the Bulldog 20. From this spot Hanley smashed off right tackle, cut to his left, and raced into the end zone with the score. The deciding point was blocked by a raging Westerly line and the Bulldogs won 7-6. The season, although not too successful, shows that Stonington teams are on the upgrade again. Mr. Cronin is a fine coach and it is evident that next year and the year after, Stonington High School once again will take its place among the state football powers. page sixty-three FRONT ROW-left to right-Bruce Morgan, Williain Kelliher, james O'Neil, Francis Cellar, Philip jones.

Fabricant-coached basketball club got off to a poor start for the 1947-48 season as they slouched into a losing streak. Although the boys played their hearts out, luck just wasnlt there, as game after game went down on the wrong side of the ledger. As the season progressed, the boys gradually found themselves and came up with a 56-52 victory over the highly favored defending champions of Bulkeley High School. This victory proved to the local fans that the spirit and will to Win was with them. The surpris- ing upset may have been due to three seniors: Francis Cella, Captain Jim O,Neil, and Paul Tripp who throughout the season scored a total of 169 - 114 - 107 respectively. Other members of the squad who played promising ball were Philip Jones and Henry Bolduc. This twosoitie accounted for 89 - 66 points respectively. Next year should be the turning point.
