Transition designed and built un- der the direction of the famous architect, Albert Prichard, and owned by the well-known financier and philosopher, Ted "Hoot" Barraclough, is plowing its way through the waters of the Atlantic Ocean en route to Europe, which is now a union of many small nations ruled by the Royal Order of the Bunga Boys. The ship's captain is Robert O'Hagan. Some of his old Stonington High School class- mates are present. Let's look around and find them. Say, there's a group of faces that look famil- iar. There's the Honorable Rudolph john Favretti, American Secretary of Agriculture, on his way to Spain to serve as an agricultural ad- viser to the government, the well-known poli- ticians Patrick Anderson and Barbara French, and the famous world traveler and explorer jim Hawkins, who recently discovered the world's highest mountain. Among the celebrities making this trip are Monsieur William "Boyer" Mar- chand, the distinguished actress Nancy "Barry- more" Sicilian, and the popular dancer, Senor Mar- tin "Bojangles" Clemens, now starring in New York's celebrated Cocabans Club, owned by his old classmates Robert Stewart and William Lam- oureaux. Darting in and out among the crowd is the New York detective, Henry Durfee, who re- cently solved the case of the "Burning Sands," or "What Made Cassidy Hopalong." Another celebri- ty on board ship is Everett Fontanella, chairman of the coming World's Fair, scheduled to open next month. Two of his assistants, Peggy Davis, in charge of interior decorations and Bob Lewis, pub- licity manager, are also present. And there's Bo Taggart, world's champion Tall Tale Teller talking to Connie Rose, leader of the All Girl Band which has 500 members and is one of America's top bands. It certainly is fun meeting all these people. Sup- pose we step over to that crowd to see who they are. Isn't that Arthur Harper's voice we hear? Remember how quiet he always was in school? Well, he's now the chairman of the U. S. Senate Ways and Means committee. Well, look who are here! It's George Miner and Palmer Miner, who have recently risen to such heights in farming that they now are gentleman farmers and own several thousand acres of farming land, Ralph Savy, cham- pion hot rod driver of the worldg His Excellency Thomas Smith, Governor of Connecticut, who has made his state the safest in the country, and Laura Weyant, champion twirler of the world. You know, this is quite a ship. There's a large swimming pool above deck which certainly is un- usual. That reminds me - Glenn Bates, Holly- wood's eligible playboy bachelor, recently had a new million dollar swimming pool installed in his lovely Beverly Hills home in Southern California. The pool was designed by Gloria Brustolon, famed Hollywood home expert. It's reported that he's considering having pools built for his three private secretaries: Mary Finnegan, Shirley Blanchard, and Barbara Enos. Now, where was I? Oh, yes! Well, there's the pool and then there's a lov- Say, isn't that Alice Fish? Alice has made quite a name for herself in the twirling world during the last few years and her friend Marilyn Cini has also hit the lime-light in the twirling world. Well, l'll be a monkey's uncle if it isn't Saltina Maderia, who has been teaching home economics back at S.H.S., and Jeanette LoBuglio, who is traveling to Europe for a vacation. Jeanette is now an extreme- ly successful dietician. Wilma Steadman is here with her husband. She and her family are now living in Providence. It looks as if Wilma has a radio. There's a crowd gathering around her. They probably want to hear the news from back home. Let's amble over to hear what's going on. "This is Sheila Kelliher speaking, Ladies and Gentleman. Have you seen my latest picture, Twelfth Winter? I'm sure that you and the whole family will enjoy it. This is station B.U.N.G.A. You are tuned to the call letters of the stars, 1230 on your dial." "Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen. This is William Lewis, your family commentator. And here's the news of the last 12 hours brought to you through the world-wide facilities of B.U.N.G.A. But first a word from your sponsor-When Colum- bus sighted land in 1492, he first called to his men -Hey you, time out for Lorello's 'Fizz,' Qmanu- factured by Charles Lorello, Inc.j best in the land, on sale at your local grocer's. In North Stonington it may be purchased at Charles Ames' Super Mar- ket. Remember, for the drink of your life, go Lor- ello's. And now the news. Leonard Brennan and Alfred Fidrych today were appointed chief me- chanics for this station. Flash! The Moon Rocket designed, built, and piloted by John Barrett, Ein- stein's successor, will leave the earth within twenty page thirty-one seconds. Barrett is already at the controls and his aides are standing by. A stranger boarded the Moon Rorhet. Can Mister X be Alan Grinnel, the fa- mous scientist responsible for the Unified Field Theory. The two were reported to have collaborated in the building of the ship. News Flash! Celina Lenihan, famed Miss America of 1953, was reput- edly offered 3100,000 to appear in Ralph Wheel- er's hit production junior Prom. A condensed ver- sion of this play may be read in this month's issue of the Monthly Gorrip, which has the eminent Rose Fiorino as its editor. Flash! The eminent doctor- scientist, Dr. Barry Richmond, A. B., M. D., today announced that his recent discovery of the long- sought-for cure for cancer has been accepted by the American Medical Society and will be put to use immediately. Flash! Scoop of the year! john fthe Molej Kendzia, recently in the Broadway Pro- duction Looh Ma, l'1n Pranring! was today voted America's top comedian. However, he has an- nounced plans of retiring from show business to open up his own photographic studio, his lifetime hobby, with Betty Oliver, one of New York's lead- ing executives, as his partner. It was reported to- day that Dorris "Van Hoff" Hempstead was offered 31,000,000 for one of her latest oil paintings. Re- ports are that she'll refuse the offer and is seriously considering selling it for charity. Flash! It was ob- served today that Raymond Fyte's laboratory in Miami, Florida, was buzzing with excitement. Can he have made another startling discovery? And now a happy word for you American women. To- day Parisian dress designers Roberta Hescock and Helen Klotz announced that full scale production of their New, New, New, Looh would begin in approximately one month. Now a happy word for you American men. My bet for the best automobile repair shop in town is Fred LaFountain's Repair- All, the only place in town where satisfaction is guaranteed and the manager Fred personally checks each and every car after his men are through. Farm- ers of America, a happy word for you. Howard Chase, brilliant inventor, today made public his newest and best invention in a long time, a mechan- ical plow, tirst of its kind in the world, that works solely by electronics. Happy plowing days are here again! David Birkbeck, owner of the 10,000 acre North Stonington farm P. D. will be the first to try it. Double, double, flash! Nurses Sally Emmet and Celestine Faulise were today made joint head nurses at the nation's biggest drive-in hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Now, for the news of the nation's capitol, we switch you to our Washington News correspondent, Ronald Holland." "There's good news tonight, Ladies and Gen- tlemen. Senator Larry Burridge, minority leader in the House of Representatives, will speak here to- day on the State Department's African policy. A bill passed in Congress today will authorize Roger Bliss, head of the U. S. Census Office to make an accurate count of the population of New London County, Connecticut. Admiral john Castodio will appear at a senate hearing today to prove to the Senate Naval Investigating Committee that more funds should be appropriated for the U. S. Navy. It is believed that he will protest the building of the super carrier U .S .S. Westerly, on the grounds that it should be called the U.S.S. Stonington. The American Olympic team, now in Switzerland, has won again. They played their final game last night and are now the proud possessors of the world's championship title. High scorers last night were Betty Amaral, Gladys Burdick, Lillian Costa, and Katherine Stiephaudt. Their total num- ber of points was 999. The sky was their limit. Washington beauty stylists, Barbara and Beverly Croucher came out today with a new home perma- nent kit. Now, I wonder which one has the Crouch- er. Joyce Harrison, star of Alwayr Leave Them Giggling really had her audience rolling in the aisles last night. For a wonderful time don't miss it-it's tops. Richard Main, for his wonderful handling of the scenery in North Atlantir was re- warded today with a thirty year contract as stage manager of the Little ,Theater of Timer Square. That's the news from Washington and we return you to New York and station B.U.N.G.A. Buzzzzzzzz- "Here's a late news bulletin, listeners-Richard MansHeld's Auto Arena was officially opened ten minutes ago. For thrills and chills, there's nothing more exciting than Mansf1eld's Auto Rating Are- na. And that's the news - see you tomorrow Qclickjf' Say, that surely was exciting. I didn't realize the class of "SO" had been so successful, did you? That's Ruth Oviatt over there. She's the author of that best seller I Can Hunt, I Can Firh, I Can Row a Boat Canoe. Mary Thompson, the captain's sec- retary, is coming over this way. What's up, Mary? What's that? O.K. I'l1 tell them. Mary said that there's to be a talent show on deck in about an hour. While they're preparing for the show, let's go up to the top deck and see what's going on. Here's Herbert Tennant. A successful song writer and pianist, he recently wrote Fm Off to Sea, to See the Sea, to See What I Can See. It's now number one on the British program Tip-Top Tuner. Doro- page thirty-two thy jones, Katherine Keegan, and Lorraine Lopes are the competent secretaries of Leslie Haley, fa- mous manutacturer of Haley's Rabbit Tailier for Good Luck. And there's our old friend Elizabeth Green, who's now one of Americas most talented singers. Elizabeth is known for her wonderful char- itable spirit as she's always taking time out to cheer up the sick and to sing for charity. You know, that face looks familiar-it's Helen Grills, owner of Philadelphia's largest dancing school. A song, Helen Grill: Taught Me Dancing in a Hurry, was recently written about it. Helen Huard, her old friend, also runs the biggest and the best modern dancing school in New jersey. Well, as I was saying-that talent show is almost ready to begin. Let's go! We don't want to miss it. "Ladies and Gentlemen: The U.S.S. Tmnrition proudly presents The Tmnrilion Follier. Our first act is Gerard McKenna who will give us an idea. of what the last football game between the Paris Bullets and the Madrid Sluggers was like. The spotlight turns on America's top football announc- er. Wonderful and thanks. Now for a violin ren- dition by Barbara Vincent called the Flight of the Warp. Next will be Betty Francis, champion skat- er of the world and her famous daredevil act in which she will attempt a live foot leap over twelve upright swords. Now a demonstration from Louis Gonsalves and Philip jones on the correct way to play golf. Louis and Philip are the champion golf- ers of the world, and are they good! Both hold sev- eral international titles. And that's our show." Say, wasn't that great! Those people were surely wonderful! Hey! There's Wanda Dimmock, Hol- lywood charm expert, who is on her way to Paris where it is reported she has a new job as fash- ion editor for the Parisian monthly La Parir. Patricia Curley is also in Paris where she is head dress designer for the weekly magazine La Farhion. Her two capable assistants are Marion Cooke and Harriet Cady. Remember Ileana Cerasoli? Well, she now has her own television program on which she's quickly becoming tel- evision's best singing star. Kathryn Faulise and jo- sephine Faillace, successful dress designers in New York, are rated as the number one dress designing team in America today. Who is over there? It's the Honorable Muriel Visgilio, Treasurer of the United States, Angelo Serio, famed star of the New York football team The Uhangirg and Fred Papson, successful New York engineer, who was one of the leading men responsible for the new Mantru Bridge. I also see jean Souza, famed eques- trian, on her way to Sweden Qwhere she will appear at a royal command performance at the Stockholm theater Smorgasbordj with jane Lathrop, cham- pion swimmer of the world. jane is not only known for her swimming ability but also for her water ballets.

BARRY RICHMOND RUTH ESTHER MAIN IEANNETTE LOBUGLIO page thirty-three GLASS HISTORY It was a cool September day four short years ago that we, the class of '50, entered Stonington High School with much the same feeling as a freshman who has just made his first appearance on the football field. We, too, were but mere fresh- men, very inexperienced and new at this game. What would happen in the future was unknown to us. That we had a rugged schedule ahead was certain, and it seemed inevitable that we would be trampled by those bigger and more assured upper- classmen. Still we resolved to show them we would be able to do our share. With great difficulty we chose our first line-up, consisting of President, Ronald Holland: Vice President. Thomas Smith: Secretary, Rose Fiorinog and Treasurer, james Hawkins. The kick-off went underway with our freshman party and thus we managed to pull through the first quarter successfully. Opening our second period as sophomores, we displayed a great deal of improvement which we had acquired under the workout of Manager Wil- liam Griffin, our ever-faithful coach. Whatever fumbles we made were recovered by our Sopho- more Hop. The players holding the leading posi- tions this time were President, William Taggart, Vice President, Philip jonesg Secretary, Rose Fior- ino, Treasurer, Thomas Smith. Although we were still green, we managed to stage our first competitive play entitled "Angela's Surprise," directed by Mrs. Josephine Italiano. When at last we received our class rings, a feeling of confidence began to sweep over us, for we knew now that we were really gaining yardage. When time was called for the half, it was with both pride and admiration that we watched our drum corps perform with Alice Fish, our talented acrobat, in the lead. Back to the old grind we came as juniors, but this time we showed considerable improvement backed by our hard working cheerleaders: Captain Dorris Hempstead, jane Lathrop, Nancy Sicilian, Wanda Dimmock, Nancy Spellman, Gloria Brusto- lon, and Muriel Visgilio. Our new leading line in this third quarter was as follows: President, Thom- as Smithg Vice Presidentg Gerard McKenna, Sec- retary, Rose Fiorino, Treasurer, Larry Burridge. Another step toward our final goal was secured with the election of the National Honor Society members: Frances Raffo, Carmela Sammataro, Rose Fiorino, Barbara Whipple, james Hawkins, Barry Richmond, and Arthur Rathbun. After a long hard attempt, we staged our competitive play, "Special Guest," a drama under the direction of Miss Den- nehey. We made another stronghold with the elec- tion of our "Brown and White" staff capably super- vised by Mrs. Eleanor Cronin with Rose Fiorino as editor-in-chief. The last few minutes of this peri- od ended successfully with our junior Promenade under the direction of Everett Fontanella, general chairman. Celina Lenihan reigned as Prom Queen. Starting out with the fourth quarter, we found it hard to believe we were now seniors. It had been a close contest all the way, and a hard fought game, but now we started toward our final goal. The ofiicers elected were, President, Tommy Smith, Vice President, Philip jones, Sec- retary, Rose Fiorino, Treasurer, Carmela Samma- taro. Angelo Serio and Gerard McKenna, co-cap- tains of the football team, carried us through an ex- citing season. Philip jones' performance as captain of the basketball team was outstanding. At this time Nancy Sicilian was awarded first place in the "Voice of Democracy Contest" and Wanda Dim- mock was chosen for D. A. R. "Good Citizenship" award. The Senior Prom with its "Winter Won- derland" setting laid the ground for another stronghold. Plans were begun for our yearbook under the capable direction of Miss Silverstein, our faculty advisor, and Elizabeth Green, our ed- itor. Tearing through the line under the direction of Miss Pellegrino we presented "Submerged," our last competitive play. Our trip to the nation's capi- tol provided for many of us an exciting experience. Finally we made a mn away with the game, scoring in the last quarter with Flunk Day, followed short- ly afterwards by Class Day. It was almost impossi- ble to realize that only a short while ago we were just beginners. Our goal had now been achieved and we at last were ready for graduation. A reali- zation that all this practice and tiresome drilling had not been in vain now swept over us. This training had prepared the vital foundation for our future where competition would be much stiffer. Regardless of whatever it may be-four years of high school life, or four quarters in a football game- time has a way of passing, and along with each new day come new experiences, new responsi- bilities, and new hopes. just as the fifty years since 1900 have gone down in history as man's fastest century, so, too, have our four years at S.H.S. slipped by quickly. Upon the shoulders of each and every one of us falls the burden of making this a still better place to live in the second half of the twentieth century.

DRAMATIG GLUB President . . . Nancy Sicilian Vice President . . Ronald Brown Secretary . Jean Barnes Treasurer . .... Gerard Noel Advirer Mrs. Josephine Cullinane The aim of the Stonington High School Dramatic Club is to offer opportunties where- by members may develop poise, artistic ap- preciation, and the opportunity to express themselves creatively, rather than to make actors out of its members. Mrs. William Cul- linane is the faculty sponsor. The Club offers opportunities for acting and opportunities also for the construction of stage scenery, working out lighting effects, planning and executing stage settings, and making up characters. The annual three-act play, directed by Mrs. Cullinane and sponsored by the Dramatic Club, offers opportunities to the entire stu- dent body for acting, stage managing, pub- licity, ushering, ticket sales, and the many other responsibilities made necessary by a public production of this nature. Teachers and students cooperate to make this dramatic presentation a worthy success. "Seventeenth Summerf this year's play, was presented on the nights of March 2 and 3 to a very enthusiastic and capacity audience. Each member of the cast deserves an im- portant place on the Dramatic Roster of Stonington High School. Credit should also be given to the stage crew. page forty-six lfllihl ROXX' lvl! to riight Ruth S.llIlklL'l'N, Mildred Robert Delagrange, ,lost-ph Risrta, Miss lilatld. lfurrg, lflifalwetli Sinionelli.

They are judged mainly on scholastic standing, personality, and cheering ability. These are only a few of the qualilications. The girl with the highest number of points automatically receives the honor of being captain. Two senior cheer- leaders, the faculty, and the captains of the teams judge these girls. Football games are divided between the senior and junior squads with seniors having first choice of these games. During basketball games, junior cheerleaders cheer at jayvee games and seniors during varsity games.

ORGHESTRA The orchestra this year has been in a re- building stage and includes a large number of new members who have been working hard to keep the standards up to the high level of preceding years. As has been the custom, some of the more advanced members in the grammar grades attended orchestra rehearsals which were held once a week. Besides some of its members taking part in the All-State Festival in Hartford, the orches- tra joined with the Glee Club in the presenta- tion of the operetta "The Belle of Bagdadf' which was held on May 18 and 19. GLEE CLUB About one hundred sixty-hve students signed up for the Glee Club this year. This is the largest group that has ever signed up for music in any one year. For the first time in three years, the Glee Club was able to meet during school hours, although it was only once per week. It is sincerely hoped that in future years the Glee Club may meet more often. For its production this year the Glee Club joined with the Orchestra to present the gay operetta "The Belle of Bagdadf' on May 18 and 19. page fifty-two FIRST RCJW-left to right-Betty Francis, Ruth Main.

The season was not a memorable oneg when the last cheer had died away the SL'OI'C board read one win, eight losses. Two gridders on the Bear squad were All-C0n- ference selections, Co-Captain Roland Buck, hard- driving fullback was tapped for the honor for the second straight year, while Co-Captain Angelo Serio's brilliant work as right guard and stalwart of the Stonington line brought him into the ranks of the conference gridiron greats. Three players made All-Conference honorable mention. They were Wfilliam "Banty" Reid, right half backg Leon- ard "Les" Brennan, centerg and jerry McKenna, quarterback. I-ligh spot of the season was the upset win over Bulkeley 12-O, at New London, October 22, which kept Stonington in the Conference race. The victory was a glorious one for the Bears who entered the game as the underdogs. Two touchdowns in rapid succession at the end SECOND ROW'-Coach Douville, joseph Adams, An- tonio Ponte, Frederick Papson, Wfilliam Reid. TBALL of the second period brought the crowd to its feet. Buck went over from the one-yard line as the cli- max of a drive that started on the Stonington 36- yard line and powerhoused 641 yards for the first score. Less than 60 seconds later Halfback Vloe Adams chucked Ll screen pass to Quarterback Mc- Kenna. W'ith beautiful blocking, McKenna wove -10-yards for the second and final tally of the game. The entire Bear line repulsed the Bulkeley of- fense throughout the afternoon. Standouts in the line were Robert "Geef" Gilmore. Howard Chase, and Leonard Brennan. On a hot, muggy October afternoon the Bruins traveled to XXfillimantic where they came, saw, and were conquered, 21 to 6, by a powerful Wfindham team. Wfindham, led by their All'State halfback, Tillie Dubose, proved too hot for the Douville men to handle. Reid once again carried the ball for the sole Stonington touchdown. In a gruelling contest the following week Ston- ington dropped a 6-O heartbreaker to Norwich.

Robert E. Fitch's conference champions held scoreless in the first quarter, broke loose to ride roughshod over the valiant Bears the next week, October 29, defeating Stonington 20 to 0. The Stonington eleven got within striking distance of the enemy goal on several occasions, once as far as the ten-yard line, but strong defensive play by the Fitchmen turned the thrusts aside. A block punt by Robert Delagrange started the luckless Bear drive. The Bears, crippled by the loss of three regulars who were hurt in the bruising Fitch game, bowed to a bigger Middletown team 30-13 at the home field the next week. Although outplaying Middle- town in the last half by resorting to a passing at- tack, two touchdowns by Roland Buck were not enough to make up the difference. Moving across the river to Craig Field, the Ston- ington Bears were the guests of the Westerly Bull- dogs for the annual Armistice Day clash. The Bears, outplayed but not outclassed, felt the claw of the Bulldog in a score of 6 to 0. The game, nip and tuck in the first half, finally broke away in the second with the Bulldogs coming up with the only score. Stonington, always in the game, never gave up until the hnal whistle. The first half showed the defense of both teams but neither team showed any THIRD ROW-Robert McSl1ane, joseph Walsh, Peter Gray, Thomas Lenihan, Harold Beal, joseph Jones, Har- old Reynolds, Henry LeClair, William Delaney, john Burdick, Clifford D'Amico, Richard Costa, john Miner.

Westerly after receiving the sec- ond half kickoff, marched down the field 65 yards, mainly on the running of Gingerella and Urso for the only T.D. of the afternoon. Stonington with Reid and Buck sharing the duties of lugging the pigskin and McKenna passing tried valiantly to get back into the ballgame, but to no avail. Serio, Gil- more, and Chase sparked the Bear line, while Fred Papson played an excellent defensive game in the backheld. Thanksgiving Day once again found S.H.S. COITI- ing out on the short end of the score. From the opening kickoff the Bears really showed their stuff as they jumped off to a quick lead. Buck gathered in a screen pass from Papson and romped 32 yards for a Stonington score. Westerly scored a T.D. in the second quarter and both teams were deadlocked at the half. Late in the third period the Bulldogs tallied the final T.D. on a pass to take the ballgame I3 to 6. In the final period desperation passes kept the Bears in the ballgame but they did not threaten seriously again. Competing for the last time in a S.H.S. uniform were Co-Captains Serio, Reid, Buck, and McKen- no. Also playing their last game were Brennan, Chase, Burridge, Ponte, Papson, Haley and Fon- tanella. Stonington wishes Coach Douville many success- ful years at Stonington and hopes his future here will be a long and successful one. page fifty-nine VARSITY Ulf to l'l,!l1t "il'llt'INLlN Smith.

The Bears defeated Branford for the second time in a well played game 61 to il. The victory was number ll against 3 defeats for the Stoning- ton cagers. Stonington's conference hopes were in the bal- ance as the Bears encountered Fitch. Playing every bit of the basketball of which they were capable, the Bears beat Fitch -i5-55. Stonington, assured of at least a tie, battled Bullceley to a -I7--46 win at Ocean Beach, thereby winning their first Eastern Connecticut Conference in basketball. Stonington defeated Newington and Shelton in the first two tournament games. The Stonington fast break was again responsible for victory.

BASEBALL The 1949 baseball team was not too suc- cessful. The team played 15 games and only won one of them. The main reason for their losses was their lack of experience and hit- ting power. Even though the team constantly lost, their spirits were high. The one game they did win was the Westerly game-this by a score of 5-5. The co-captains of the team were Henry Bolduc, Joseph Italiano, and Donald Podziewski. The 1950 baseball team, captained by Roland Buck, is looking forward to a more successful year. The probable lineup will con- sist of veterans: Arthur Rathbun, james Eal- lato, Thomas Smith, Roland Buck, Gerard McKenna, Marshall Stowell, Stephen Hres- chalc, Robert Gilmore, and Joseph Risica. There is now a state playoff tournament for baseball, as well as in basketball.
