This company owned by Kenny Bogue and Buddy Feeney has joan Dougherty as its head script writer. We are now very happy to present Gary Bill, the blond Garthur Odfrey, who will broadcast and M.C. this premier. fHis very competent secretary Rosemary Cone is at his side.j The members of the class of '49 are special guests this june evening in 1960. Qln a glass enclosed booth, Gary is able to spot his classmates as they appear in the theater. The last strains of the class ode are heard as he begins to speak.j "Welcome friends and former classmates. Some reserved seats are still empty. But wait a minute- here come the famous Meda Womack, Margaret Faulise, Pauline Blanchet, and Carrie Perry, all working as Powers' models. Now enters the Ston- ington Symphony Orchestra which will play a few selections before the presentation. Included in this orchestra are Dorothy Whipple, Ernest Rayner, Shirley Rook, and Marie Schwam. As an extra at- traction Alicia McDonough and Marilyn jopson will render Rachmaninoff's 'Concerto for Two Pi- anos.' There's our Carlsson, the famous Optome- trist. With him is Mary Bruno, the designer of eye glass rims. Down the aisle come two very familiar figures, the 'Soni' TwinsfMary and Margaret Fain. I wonder which has the 'Soni'? Look who is right behind them-Sally O'Neil, 'Miss Rheingold' of 1952, accompanied by the most eligible bachelors who direct the bachelors' home in New London, Robert Meeker and joseph Imdahl. Sally's insep- arable pal Ruth O'Neil will not be present this evening as she has gone to Ireland to see the little leprechauns. "Three surgeons are now entering the theater: Barbara Harrington, brain surgeon, Fernald Fitts, psychiatrist, and Francis Holly, the famous tree surgeon. Have you ever looked at the Bears Soe- buck catalog? You must have seen the famous mod- els of ties-Billy Banks and Chet Godomski-- sitting down next to Elaine Geyer and Milton Kie- burg who did the monogramming for the produc- tion. One of my rivals is now entering the theater, Mary Holly the famous television comedian. Bar- bara Stinson and Lila Steele, co-authors of the book 'How to Get Along With a Husband' have just stopped to chat with Gayla Bill, and jean and joan Mazzarella, dental hygienists in the clinic owned by Raymond Colechia. Two of Ray's most capable assistants are LaVerne Duguid and Donald Pod- ziewski. Pat Albro, chemistry teacher, is having difficulty with Tony Rocha who is trying desper- ately to sell her his famed plastic test tubes.'Ernest Honig, the well known veterinarian, has just seated himself in a corner with two of his pet dogs. "I see Stanley Pianka, Carlene Mello, and Fran- cis Dolce, teachers at the old Alma Mater, arguing as to whether they should accept Angelo .Galli's offer to start a chauffeuring business for the stu- dents from Mystic and Stonington. "The noted movie critic Dora DiCesare is seated beside joan Richards, one of the few female play- ers for the Brooklyn Dodgers. The thrilling mo- ment has finally arrived! Donald Pettini gives the signal for the hlm to begin and the lights dim. It will seem like old times seeing all these familiar faces once again. "First we see Marie Russo, Margaret Clay, Ethel Remick, Margaret Medeiros, joan Riley, and Helen Herbert walking into the Block L study hall. I last saw them very capably running their nursery school in New York. "There's Dot Saffomilla and Tommy Cordner ar- guing over a little matter of a tack on a chair. I guess their vocations were lin the cards,' he being a comedian and she an argumentative mathematics teacher. There's Bolduc Cstill in top form as a professionalj plowing through the Westerly line at the Thanksgiving game. "We see Florence Morrissette, Margaret Shea, Lois Dunn, Veronica Travers, Frances Dowding, and Eva james talking about their future nursing careers. john Kiley and Leon Williams are stroll- ing down the hall. They look so shy but today they have proved their hidden ability as sports writers. jane Bowen and Santina Di Maggio with their partners are jitterbugging at the Washington Club Dance. Anita McKie and Ella Perry are talk- ing in French class. Ella's new book, 'Lucy's Por- trait,' has just been effectively illustrated by Anita. Edward Paul, Peter Grills, joseph F. Italiano, and Samuel Perrone are busy making bookcases in the shop. They have succeeded in becoming noted contractors.

W iff 7 1949 GLASS HISTORY On a sunny September morn in 1945, we cau- tiously approached that imposing brick building on the summit of Mayflower Avenue. Once inside the door, our worst fears were confirmed as we viewed this huge monstrosity with its array of many obscure rooms, schedule cards, and "face smearing" seniors! From the very beginning, we were to learn that an upperclassman's word was law and to see a traffic officer was to obey. After catching our breath, we noticed the many new classmates we had-this was the first year that the Wheeler High School students came to S.H.S. Finally adjusted to this rigorous routine, we elected our class officers with the help of Miss DeSista. We were guided through this turbulent freshman year by William Kelleher, President, Vice-Presi- dent, Milton Kieburg, Secretary, Gayla Bill, Treas- urer, Lila Steele. Our first social debut was the Freshman Party which introduced us to the lighter life at S.H.S. Many talented personalities were discovered among our fellow laborers, as proved by the large per- centage from the class actively participating in the the various activities. With a newly acquired manner of self-confi- dence, we started our sophomore year by electing the following classmates to office: William Kelle- her, President, Milton Kieburg, Vice President, Gayla Bill, Secretary, Lila Steele, Treasurer. This year we presented, our first dramatic enterprise, a competitive play--"Almost Seventeen"-under the direction of Miss Hastings, our class adviser, and Miss Sieve. Excitement was heightened by the riv- alry among the contestants competing for the hon- or of being chosen as cheerleaders. judged co-cap- tains were Anita McKie and joan Mazzarella. Class rings, traffic posts, glee club, football, baseball, and the newly formed Fife, Drum, and Bugle Corps were all current topics. We entered our junior year with the "do or die" attitude toward becoming the backbone of the school. By trial and error, we reached this tradi- tional, but hard to gain, goal. Miss Hastings re- mained our class adviser. Leading us this all im- portant year were: President, William Kelleher, Vice President, William Watson, Treasurer, Pa- tricia Higgins, Secretary, Anita McKie. This year seven of our best students were elected members of the National Honor Society, namely: Patricia Albro, Richard Carlsson, joan Dougherty, Marilyn jopson, Anita McKie, Dorothy Saffomilla, and Veronica Travers. Our next dramatic effort was "His First Date," a hilarious comedy directed by Mr. Petty. We as- sumed a great responsibility when we undertook to edit our first issue of the Brown and White under the supervision of Mrs. Cronin. Our staff was ca- pably headed by joan Dougherty, the new Editor- in-Chief. The grand finale of our third and best year was our junior Prom which, with the aid of Miss Hastings, Mr. Houston, and Mr. Morgan, was a spectacular success. President "Spike" Kelleher and Prom Queen Sally O'Neil, with her enchanting court, ruled over the festivities of the evening. A superb orchestra added to the "dreamtime" at- mosphere on this starlit june evening. The Senior Regime! Now at last we blood- thirsty seniors could rule the roost- the organiza- tion of the Washington Club. Through this, many of our projects were made possible: cake sales, numerous paper drives, and the lucrative Thanks- giving Dance which netted more than was ex- pected. Our little expedition into the "cold cruel" world proved to be worth all the suffering fraw feet and blistersj that we went through to make our dream come true, thanks to the untiring efforts of Mr. Foley. ' The honor of directing us in our final year was given to William Kelleher. He was assisted by Vice President, Anthony Rocha, Secretary, Barbara Stin- son, and Treasurer, Lila Steele. Our adviser was Mr. Williamson. Now began the hustle and bustle of scraping material together for the yearbook, Under the com- petent hand of Veronica Travers and the inex- haustible energy of Miss Silverstein, we edited a book we think to be outstanding. On january 29, the last social contribution of class of '49 was made to our good old Alma Mater -our Senior Prom. A Hurry of pretty gowns, sweet whispering music, and a bewitching "Candyland" constituted this gala affair. The rest of the year was spent in a swirl of events. In june came Flunk Day and Class Day. At last our shining hour approached-gone was our overwhelming self-confidence and know-it-all attitude, for we realized then that we were soon to be alone with an unpredictable future stretching before us. We understood now that "we must al- ways have old memories and young hopes" in or- der to live a happy, full, and rich life . . .

Some of the season's lustre was marred, however, by the retirement of Mike Cronin from his position as coach. Three members of the team were all-con- ference selections: Captain Kieburg at end, Bol- duc at tackle, and the freshman sensation, Roland Buck, at fullback. The Bears opened by participating in the Con- ference Round Robin in which they scored the lone touchdown, enabling the South to win 7 to 6. The following week the Bears rolled to an as- tonishing 27 to 0 triumph over favored Middle- town. Buck scored two touchdowns to pace the team in this one. The next Stonington game saw a fumbled punt attempt converted into the lone score as the Bears beat Bulkeley 7 to 0. Once again Buck was the star of the game, but McKenna played exceptional SECOND ROW-jtmsepli Italiano, Anthony Rocha, Ro- land Buck, Gerald McKenna, Milton Kieburg. VARSITY ball at quarterback and tossed the winning pass to jim Watson. The first Stonington defeat came the next week as jackson Vining of Windham ran a kick-off back 80 yards and jim Turiotte booted a perfect placement to give Windham a 7 to 6 win. The Bears knocked on the door four times in the sec- ond half, but were unable to find the necessary scoring punch. The following week the Bears came from be- hind with two third quarter touchdowns to nip Fitch 13 to 6. The high point came later in the third quarter when Hank Bolduc 'intercepted a Fitch lateral and raced 50 yards to pay dirt. In the next game Stonington whipped Norwich Free Academy, 19 to 6, with a second half drive featured by Bill Watson's 75 yard run with a stolen ball. The next week S.H.S. suifered its second and last defeat of the year at the hands of Chapman page fifty-eight 1949 FIRST ROW-left to right-Francis Dolce, Alfred White, George Burdick, Gary Bill, William Watson, Roland Buck, Anthony Rocha, Milton Kieburg, James Watson, Ralph Horn, Henry Bolduc, john Garity, Don- ald Podziewski, John Lowe, Joseph Italiano.

Stonington topped Notre Dame of West Haven 18 to 13 in a surprisingly close game. Bandy Reid scored two touchdowns for the Bears in his first game and Bolduc scored the third, and deciding touchdown. The Armistice Day game turned out to be the imost exciting of the year, with the Bears topping Westerly by a 6 to 0 count. Stonington's score came in the second period on a Reid-Correira pass. The big thrill for Stonington fans was re- served for the closing moments of the game, how- ever, when Westerly marched to a first down on the Stonington five yard line, but the Bears held for four downs and Westerly failed to score. The next to the last game turned out to be something of a breather as Stonington romped over St. Mary's 21 to 7. The hnal score doesn't tell half the story of Stonington's superiority, as two Bear touchdowns were called back for penal- ties, and St. Mary's didn't score until the last play of the game. Stonington, perhaps inspired by the fact that Coach Cronin was closing his career, came up with four first-half touchdowns to rout Westerly, 31 to O, in the Thanksgiving Day game. Roland Buck, the fine freshman fullback, scored three touch- downs to set a couple of records for the school, and the whole team played the best game of a good season. The Bears placed among the top 10 teams in the state. Individual stars were Bolduc, Buck, and Kieburg who made the all conference team, Mc- Kenna at quarterback, Horn at center, and Reid, who became a fine running back in the closing games of the season. The school is saddened by Mike Cronin's retirement but glad that he ended on a successful note. J page lifty-nine 1649 .

BASEBALL The 1948 baseball team, which is coached by Mr. Fabricant, played 18 games. Witlm Co- Captains james O'Neil and Red Cella, they won 12 games. They were fortunate in de- feating Westerly in a double header by a score of 3-2. The Co-Captains of the 1949 team are Henry Bolduc, Donald Podziewski and jo- seph Italiano. page sixty I949 114 FIRST ROW-left to right-Charles Lorello, William Banks, john Kiley, Raymond Lopes, Milton Kieburg, William Watson, Gerald McKenna, Raymond Colechia, Donald Pettini.

TRACK 1948 TRACK TEAM The 1948 team captained by Milton Kieburg and William Watson did not have too brilliant a season. Losses to Norwich, Bulkeley, and a second place in the triangular meet with Chapman Tech and Admiral Billard Academy occurred during this second season of rebuilding. A veteran Alumni team was nosed out by the young Bear squad, 49V2 to 48V2. At the State and Eastern Connecticut conference meets the team finished well down in the point scoring. A sound basis for 1949 was laid with many freshmen and sophomores coming to the front as a nucleus for this year's team. Kieburg, Watson, Noyes, McKenna, Palmer, Colechia, Chase, Paul, Hawkins, Papson, Kiley and Wilkinson were the workhorses of the 1948 squad. All of these men except Noyes and Palmer will return to bolster this year's squad. ' 1949 TRACK TEAM As this goes to press the 1949 Track Team has competed in the University of Connecticut Relays at Storrs, Connecticut, and finished second to Chapman Tech in a triangular meet with Tech and Admiral Billard Academy. Tech just managed to edge the Bears, SSVZ to 46V2. All that is needed to present a well balanced squad for this year is one additional good sprint man. Fred Papson has been outstanding at the half mile and mile distances, while Tom Cordner, Howie Chase and Ray Col- echia have acquitted themselves especially well in the field events. Capt. Milton Kieburg in the high jump and Bill Watson in the pole vault give prom- ise of their usual fine performances throughout the school year. page sixty-one I 649 FIRST ROW-left to right-Richard Gomes, Daniel THIRD ROW-Roland Pampel, Richard Eppler, Stephen Kelliher, Henry Bolduc, Donald Podziewski, Robert Gil- Hreschak, joseph Adams, Roger Bliss, Francis Previty. more, Philip Jones.

B ll S K E T B A L L The 1948-49 basketball team coached by Mr. Morris Fabricant has been very success- ful. They were rated fifth in the state and second in the conference. Although qualified to play in the CIAC tournament in New Haven, they were eliminated by Seymour High School, their first opponent. This year's captain was "Hank" Bolduc. We are very proud of Don Podziewski "49" who was the highest scorer in the Eastern Connecticut Conference with 270 points. Since several 'members of this year's team will be back next year, we are looking for- ward to our most successful season. page sixty-two - 1949 FIRST RCJW-left to rightgjean Mazzarella, Elaine Geyer. 1 l SECOND ROXV-Edmund Victoria, Anita lNIcKie, Blar- garet Shea, Milton Kieburg.
