playing football, the piano, baseball, or canasta-
all of which he does well. He was often observed
practicing the piano diligently during his leisure
time. Toms hard work in this department has
made him the school "piano master," a distinction
which has given him the sole honor of playing the
Chapel hymns every morning. It was not uncom-
mon during Tom's stay at The Gunnery to find
every inmate of the corridor crowded into his
room because of both his explosive personality

aition in his class. We sincerely wish ,lay the
cess at college that he has enjoyed here at
Although only a two-year man, Mat made a
profound impression on all of his classmates
through his leadership and sincerity, and most of
all perhaps as a result of his combustible sense
of humor. A diligent worker, his ability was
undermined by the unforseen eruption of a
humorous dissertation on any subject, often, to
the delight of classmates, turning a slow-moving
class into a "riot." He played both years here on
the Varsity football squad, winning his letter as
a Senior, and winning two as a member of Varsity
crew. Being a Vice-President of the "Gunnery
Elders" and a ferocious debater in the Politics

scene, through actual contact with its people and
diligent reading of books covering a wide range
of topics. Robin earned two Varsity letters in his
brief stay, one on the Varsity soccer squad, and
one by his enviable ability as a stroke on the First
Boat of the Varsity crew. He was an organizer of
the Philosophy and Literary Clubs and a member
of the Politics Club, where his radical views on
conventional topics and dissertations on the neces-
sity of the exact meaning of words provoked much
discussion. He has certainly strengthened the bond
of friendship between us and the English people.
GEORGE LEETE PECK, II
George, coming to The Gunnery from nearby
New Haven, was a member of the four-year set.
His career here has been varied and distinguished
as he contributed much to School life. In the extra-
curricular field George lent his resounding bari-
tone voice to the Ten G's, culminating his musical
achievement by being elected President of the
Glee Club in his Senior year. Playing an integral
part in School life, George is a member of the
Second Century Committee and the News Board.
In his first year he was elected to the Freshman
Student Council. On the athletic side George
played for two years on the Varsity football squad,
spending his Winters and Springs on the Varsity
crew. The finishing touch was added to his Gun-
nery career when he was elected a Prefect for his

PETER PAUL RAYMUNT
lailing from the hills of Washington, Paul
ered The Gunnery three years ago as one of
select Day Boys. His interests lay mainly in
realm of intellectual activity. One of the high-
scholars in the school, his name was a perma-
t fixture on the Honor Roll, having never
ed to make it in his Senior year. His ability to
le off Latin and Greek translations never failed
maze his classmates. Paul was a member of the
itics Club. Though the scholastic side of school
consumed much of his time, he was not with-
athletic ability. In his first year he played foot-
with Mr. Sturges' midgets, and for the next
years held down first string positions on the
football team. In his Senior year he guided
Varsity hoopsters as manager.
JAMES LOUIS ANTHONY PEREIRE
DARTMOUTH "j1M"g "FRENcHY"
A visitor from la Rue Weber, Paris, Jim was a
four-year man at The Gunnery, working his way
up from his first orientation to a Monitorship in
his Senior year. Although sometimes at a loss for
the correct American idiom, jim still insists that
his French idioms and accent have disappeared.
As a Freshman he was on the soccer, ski, and golf
squads, and was a member of the Glee and Camera
Clubs. As a Sophomore his schedule remained the
same and he joined the Choir, and turned to
"coxing" the Second Boat. In his Junior year he
added a membership in the Afhliation Club to his
busy schedule. As a Senior he was elected President
of the Affiliation Club and earned a Varsity letter
on the Varsity soccer squad and another in j.V.
IVAN KISSAM TRAIN SAMSONOFF
UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT
To The Gunnery there arrived four years ago a
quiet unassuming student from the hills of Wash-
ington, Conn. But one day his picture was noticed
on the cover of a "physical culture" magazine and
within a day Ivan was skyrocketed to fame. Proof
of Ivan's muscular powers can be seen by the
graduated sizes of the "T" shirts he buys at the
Athletic Store. Ivan has worked his way up from
Third Team football and baseball to Varsity foot-
ball, hockey and crew in his Senior year. He earned
four Varsity letters, two in hockey, in which he
came up from the IV. Squad, and two in crew, in
which he graduated to the First Boat. Ivan has
earned his popularity in his class mainly through
his sincerity, dependability and quick smile.

JAMES REID STEPHENS
Coming here in 1947 from Brookheld, Conn.,
Jim is one of the "Lucky Thirteen." A very con-
scientious student, he has preserved a place of
good standing throughout his four-year stay. Get-
ting as much as possible from Gunnery athletics,
Jim contributed his ability on both the soccer field
and gridiron in the fall, turning towards the ice
of Fannings Pond in the winter, and switching
towards the tranquil waters of the Shepaug for
spring fishing. Jim contributed greatly to the
Schools extra-Curricular activities, being a mem-
ber of the Red and Gray Staff for two years, ob-
taining a four-year spot in the Glee Club, and in

seen by the effects on his classmates and by the
record that he leaves to posterity. He earned his
letters in hockey, being the mainstay of the Varsity
squad for two years, also spending two years and

CHAPLAIN S MESSAGE TO THE GRADUATING CLASS
Inner stability is essential to one's survival. The world is full of people who will tell
you how to get it. I know of only one way to secure it, namely, in the Christian way of life.
In the early days of Christian history, Christians were known as "followers of the way"
rather than by any other term, and it was Christ's custom to speak of Himself as "The Way"
rather than otherwise. "I am the Way," He would declare to His followers. He presented to
the world a life that was and is a pattern of invincible living. At His trial before Pilot He
was the only calm person present.
The standard gauges of life are honesty, purity, unselfishness and love. In proportion
as we are true to these great standards of action we become more alive, harder to overcome,
more tranquil within ourselvesg and as we depart from them, we become less alive, easier
to down, less tranquil within ourselves.
At The Gunnery we are constantly trying to fortify our lives in accustoming ourselves
to being honest, pure, unsellish, and loving. It has been a rare privilege to me to be asso-
ciated with you in this endeavor, and I hope that this way of living so earnestly followed
among us will continue until all men shall see in your life a pattern of inner stability that
is the foundation of an invincible life.

I952 FOOTBALL REVIEW
The 1951 edition of the Gunnery Varsity football team went through
seven-game schedule unbeaten and untied, the first time since 1943. Wk
triumphing over such opposition as Westminster, Berkshire and South Ke
the Red and Gray tallied 148 points to the opposition's 39.
The defense merits a great deal of praise as it held Canterbury, Berksk
and Trinity-Pawling scoreless while limiting Pomfret, Westminster, South K4
and Wooster to six touchdowns. Following two weeks of practice, the Red 2
Gray contingent opened on October 6th at Barnes Memorial Field agains
lively Pomfret eleven. Gunnery's aspirants started the scoring early as the li
men, led by Skillman and Hinkle, ripped open huge holes in the opponei
line bringing the ball to Pomfretis 20. There Walters' aerial to Shaw in the 4
zone provided Gunnery's first six points.
Both clubs crossed into pay-dirt in the third period and the linemen, R
kert and Unsworth, curtailed Pomfret's last offensive threat. The final whi:
blew with the scoreboard reading: Gunnery 12 -Pomfret 6.
On the ensuing Saturday the Red and Gray travelled to New Milforc
meet Canterbury whom they downed, 18-0. Offensive standouts Walters :
Lash each contributed to the outcome, rallying two and one touchdowns rest
tively. Defensively Captain John Schereschewsky and Pete Pullen continu:
crashed into the Blue's secondary to make bone-jarring tackles which botw
up the host so effectively that they never could get moving.
I952 FOOTBALL REVIEW
On October 20th, Captain Schereschewsky and Company met Berkshire's
fry Sweeny at Sheffield before an enthusiastic Fathers Day crowd. Defensive
ls Unsworth and Hale deserve much credit as they combined with linebackers
Ylen, Renkert, and Munson to smother the Berkshire back.
Pete Lash scored all of Gunnery's 13 points, tallying from 15 yards out in
second period as Jack Skillman and Jay Hale led a hard-charging defensive
2. Again in the second chapter Rog Walters' pitchout was snagged by the
rback who outran the Berkshire secondary for the last score of the fray. Final
The Saturday of October 27th brought together two undefeated, untied

xster. This clash, featuring two very spirited elevens, ended in a 24-14 Gun-
Pete Lash and Rog Walters tallied in the first half as their respective scores
h climaxed a 45 yard Red march. The third and fourth chapters had the
ring more diversified as Westminster out-tallied the visitors, 14-12, with
ereschewsky and Hale contributing one T.D. each to the Gunnery's final
In a sea of mud, snow, and rain, the Big Red outslid Trinity-Pawling to
8-0 victory. Munson and Hinkle, defensive stalwarts, slipped through the
Blue and Gold's forward wall time and time again to spill Trinity's scatbaci
in their tracks.
Within ten minutes of the first period Roger Walters had slithered 20 ai
30 yards respectively to put Gunnery in the lead, 14-O, where it stayed until tl
third period when Captain and fullback, John Schereschewsky, smashed i
yards for the third T.D. over the slush-snow of Barnes Memorial Field. Seni
tailback Larry Schine annexed the host's final T.D. plowing two yards ov
center in the dying seconds of the 28-0 clash.
Showing the spirit which was characteristic of the team throughout t
season, Gunnery outscored South Kent 26-7 on our Parents' Day, Novemf
10th, in the teacup classic. Before a sunbathed crowd, the Red and Gray start
slowly. Then, with the two teams locked in a scoreless struggle, Mel Waterb
sterling defensive end, thwarted a determined South Kent drive, stole a latei
and sprinted 60 spine-tingling yards to break the deadlock. Gus Kellogg ga
nered the second score of the afternoon, taking a nine-yard Walters' chuck
the end zone. Rog Walters, in the fourth and final chapter, provided the tour
down incentive scampering -45 yards with a South Kente-r's boot behind t
timely blocks of Guida and Emerson. Pete Lash smashed three yards througl
gaping hole opened by Pullen and Munson to annex the hosts third score. L2
scored again in the last period to culminate the day's 26-7 score.
It was a Weary Gunnery eleven that travelled to Danbury to meet an
fused Wooster team in the season's finale on November 17th. Leading 14-6
ly in the third quarter, Dave Renkert, along with jack Skillman, Bernie Guida
l end jay Hale, combined to spring john Schereschewsky on a 50-yard scoring
nt that closed the door on any hopes that Wooster had of forging into the
d. Other scorers were Pullen on a 70-yard run, Hale and Unsworth. A gallant
Joster squad was just unable to outplay Gunnery's experienced eleven. Seniors

I952 SOCCER REVIEW
In the Fall of 1951 Soccer became a major sport for
the first time since its introduction at The Gunnery five
years ago. However, with only four lettermen returning,
Mr. Coit, as head coach, was faced with the problem of
building an almost entirely new team.
Following two weeks of practice, the team journeyed
to Lenox on October 6th for their season's opener. Play-
ing well from the start, Gunnery scored on Mitchell's
boot. The game was dominated by a strong defense, and
in the fourth quarter Stephenls goal clinched the game,
2-0. On October 10th Gunnery began its home season
against Canterbury. Captain Zenowich scored in the first
period, but the Red's defense lapsed and the Blue scored
twice to go ahead at the half, 2-1. A second-half goal by
Zenowich tied matters, but this was short-lived as Can-
terbury scored the final goal of the game to go ahead 3-2.
Choate, Gunnery's next foe, won an evenly played,
October 12th game 1-0, at the victor's field. The winning
goal was tallied on a fourth-period corner kick.
Gunnery, again taking to the road, met a powerful
Kent squad and lost a hard-fought 3-1 decision on Octo-
ber 17th. With Koven and Dabney excelling on defense,
Gunnery kept in the game all the way and its lone score
came by Voionmaa.
The Red and Gray met its next opponent, Berkshire,
on October 24th in a driving rainstorm at Washington.
The team struggled through three quarters of scoreless
play highlighted by a thrilling performance by goalie
Chandler. With five minutes remaining, Bretter scored
what appeared to be the winning tally, but Berkshire,
rising to the occasion, tied it with three seconds left. In
overtime all attempts to score failed and the game ended
in a 1-1 deadlock.
October 26th saw Taft invade the Big Red and win a
closely contested game, 1-0, marred only by Gunnery's
failure to co-ordinate a consistent attack. The decisive
goal came in the fourth period.
On the rainy afternoon of November 2nd, the team
travelled to Trinity-Pawling. Gunnery's host spotted the
Red and Gray a quick first-period score by Zenowich,
Trinity's strength and Gunnery's lack of offense combined
to defeat Coit's chargers, 5-1.
l952 SOCCER REVIEW
In a return home game with Choate on November 7th
Voionmaa scored twice in the first period, but Choate
fought back gamely to tie at half-time, 2-2. The teams
battled evenly in the last two periods until, with only
minutes left, Zenowich scored a penalty kick for a hard-
fought victory, 3-2.
Hopkins Grammar was the next opponent in a Novem-
ber 9th match marked by rough play at the New Haven
school. Two goals by Zenowich were not enough and
Hopkins overpowered Gunnery, 4-2.
On the following Thursday, in a final away game,
Berkshire took a 2-l halftime lead on a rainswept field of
mud. Gunnery's score was by Pereire. In the second half,
Zenowich tallied twice to put the Coit men ahead, but
the Green forces then knotted the count and the game
ended a 3-3 tie.
November 16th marked the home season finale, as
Gunnery met Forman. Rain and mud prevailed as the
Red squad led 2-0 at halftime. Then, with Voionmaa and
Mitchell scoring two goals each, Gunnery overran For-
man to win 6-0.
At the Hnal meeting of the soccer squad Ted Koven
was elected captain for the 1952 season.

Hotchkiss, riding the crest of a ten-game winning streak on February 13th, after
liantly pulling up to a 57-37 tie with lb minutes left, came out on the short end of a

ison when, in the fourth period with 52 seconds left, Pete Lash caged the final foul shot

tants and spectators, the outcome might have favored Kent. Shaw was high with 24 points.

plays and controlling many rebounds. Six-foot-four jim Harvey cavorted around the

Larry Schine did fine jobs as the unheralded substitutes who saved many important
nes with their spirited play.

I952 HOCKEY REVIEW
The 1952 hockey team came through to win five,
lose four, and tie three, compiling the best record
since 1942. Finishing in fourth place in the League,
with a not very impressive slate of one win, two
losses, and three ties, the team nevertheless figured
prominently, most specifically through their win
over the League-favored Taft six, knocking them
out of first place to clear the way for Hotchkiss.
The team comprised mainly of such veteran line-
men as Harry Voionmaa, right wing, Chuck Chand-
ler, center, and Ed Auchincloss, left wing, was back-
boned by the two returning stalwarts of the defense,
Captain Gus Kellogg and john Schereschewsky.
Phil Hinkle, a surprise starter in the nets, proved
invaluable and added greatly to the team's success.
The first game was played on January 9th at
Salisbury and the Red and Gray emerged on top
of a 2-1 count. The hockey was characterized by
typical first-game sloppiness but, though the score
was close, Gunnery had the edge throughout. The
goals were collected by Voionmaa and Kellogg.
The pucksters were up for the next game, how-
ever, as they battled Hotchkiss, the eventual League
champs, to a 5-3 tie on home ice in a contest of
good, fast hockey. The visitors scored two quick
goals in the beginning of the Hrst period. By the
end of the second period it was all tied up at 2-2,
as Auchincloss and Hawley both dented the nets.
ln the third Hotchkiss came back with another
tally, but Harry Voionmaa reciprocated, again tying
the contest into what proved to be the final knot.
The team met with its first defeat at the hands
of South Kent on january 16th, being downed 5-l.
Playing conditions were poor and most of the game
was played in a torrent of rain and sleet. The lone
Gunnery score was caged by Kellogg on a beautiful
pass from Voionmaa.
Westminster, next on the list, proved to be an
even match as the final score of 2-2 portrays. It
was a see-saw battle all the way with Gunnery
taking the lead only to have it twice knotted. The
final Westminster goal arrived with about two
minutes left to play in the game. The combination
.Wa L ,, . ea... aa..
f a B N
of Auchincloss and Voionmaa accounted for the
two Red and Gray scores.
The sextet, in their one real let-down of the
season, lost at Berkshire by a 6-1 count., as four of
the six opposing goals were scored in the first five
minutes of play. Having eventually pulled them-
selves together, Gunnery scored one goal to Berk-
shire's two for the remainder of the game.
The first of two games with Ceniterbury was
played on home ice and Hinkle gained his first
shutout, the final score being 5-O. The second game
with Canterbury and the last game of the season,
on February 25th, was unnecessarily close, and the
Red and Gray managed but a 2-1 triumph.
The game at Taft was indeed the prize win of
the season. The team fought its way to a 2-0 victory
over a highly-favored sextet. Goalie Phil Hinkle
turned in a brilliant performance, and john Sche-
reschewsky was outstanding at defense. Gunnery
scores were pushed in by Auchincloss and Chandler.
On February 9th the pucksters fell prey to a
stronger South Kent sextet for a second time by a
score of 3-1.
Trinity-Pawling was easy pickings for the spirited
Red and Gray team which glided home to win 6-1.
Hawley and Samsonofif both joined the scoring ranks
with one apiece.
Two days later the team absorbed its only shutout
of the season as the result of fine ice play by Choate
in a hard and fast 2-0 contest.
The sextet battled to its third tie on February
22nd at New Milford, deadlocking Kent 2-2. Chand-
ler and Samsonofif were responsible for the two
The success of the team lies mainly in the hands
of the coach and much credit is to be given to Mr.
Sturges and his assistant, Mr. Golembeske. The
hockey team will certainly miss Mr. Sturges next
year, and may he have the best of success in his
venture abroad. Best of luck to Mr. Golembeske
and Captain-elect john Wright in their coming

I952 VARSITY BASEBALL REVIEW
With a defensive finesse and offensive power which few teams were able to override.

second time in as many years. The season's count stood at 12 wins and three losses, when
Coach Ed Buxton received the final congratulations on june 4th.
In the opener on May 2lst jay Hale and Pete Pullen combined efforts to thwart
South Kent, 3-0. Played at South Kent, the game proved little encouragement to Coach
Buxton, as the Big Red itself received only two hits. April l6th found the club at Ken1
for its initial League contest of the season. jay Hale wrapped up a neat six-hitter, a:
Gunnery nipped the home nine, 3-2, on nine hits.
Fortune again smiled on Coach Buxton in the third contest on April 19th, as Halt
and Pullen worked alternately to subdue Canterbury, 6-l. Tom Kearney led the offensive
with a double and a single in three ofhcial trips. Rain fell literally and figuratively a
Wooster on April 23rd, as the home club outlasted the Red and Gray, 7-6. Kellogg ant
Schereschewsky shone in a losing cause with two hits apiece.
April 30th marked victory number four, as Hale pitched a 7-0 no-hit, no-run contes
at Salisbury. Tom Unsworth held hitting honors with two hits. On the home field oi

nine, 6-2, on a Hale three-hitter. Lash again led the offensive attack with two hits.
Amid the cheers of the Senior weekend crowd on May 10th, Choate succumbed, 2-l

The 1952 Gunnery oarsmen seldom had a chance to dip their blades in placid watel
on Lake Waramaug. However, choppy water didn't seem to handicap the Varsity on rar
days for they compiled the best record since the sport was launched at the Gunnery i
After three weeks of preparation Coach Beebe had made up the three top boat
all of which journeyed to St. Marks to match bladework against their hosts and South Kei
on April 26th. The first event of the day was the Third boat race which the Red and Gr:
captured by one length. Following the Third's triumph, the Second boat, rowing at
constant 56, emerged the victor by a length and a half over South Kent. But the Big Red
First boat could not make it a clean sweep. They lost to South Kent by a half length .
the last few strokes on the half-mile course.
The following Saturday the Red and Gray raced South Kent on home waters. Tl
two lower shells notched their second straight victory, but the First again could not mai
tain their lead to the finish. South Kent's strong bid at the close of the race again enabli
them to jump into the lead at the linish line and win by three to four feet.
Next on the Crew schedule was the Yale '55 seconds, but this crew was decimated l
an outburst of measles and in place of Yale, the two Varsity boats took on Kent's third bc
on May Sth at Lake Waramaug. Kent, which broke up their eight-man shell into two fou
was not expected to give the Gunnery rowers a stiff race. But the race was a spectato
race all the way and it was the first time that the 2nds were pressed for victor laure
After the first quarter marker, the Big Red rowers crept into the lead and stayed the
until they finished about a half-length ahead of Kent. However, the First boat's iighti:
spirit won an entirely different type of race as they rowed to a live-length triumph.
Traveling to Salisbury on May 24th, the Red and Gray oarsmen won shirts in all
'ee races. The Third's, who rowed the day before, crossed over a length ahead of the
'um. The Second shell found the smooth water to their liking and rowed a ine race,
nning by two lengths. The Firsts, with little check in the boat, defeated Sarum's First
at by a length.
Carrying the best record in Gunnery's rowing history into the New England regatta
Worcester, Mass., the top two boats qualified in their first heats by taking second place.
the Hnals both Red and Gray shells lacked their usual lift and just missed third positions.
eter captured the race for First boats and Brown and Nichols won the Second boat sprint.
This yeat's Second boat jumped from eighth position to fourth while the First
uained in the same position as last year among the ten competing schools.
The Second and Third boats both went undefeated in five and four contests respec-
ely, while the First won two and lost two in four meets.

l952 TENNIS REVIEW
The 1952 Gunnery Tennis Team, by winning ten out of eleven matches, tallied th
best record in the schools history. Shutting out Wooster, Kent Znds, South Kent, Tai
Znds, and Canterbury, the Red and Gray racquetmen, under the coaching of Stu Duncal
totaled 64 individual wins to their opponent's 13, the number 5 and 6 men never droppin
Playing on their home courts, the Gunnery team swept Wooster in a pre-season cor
test, 7-0, on April 20th. The weak Wooster live could not equal the aggressive groun
strokes of the eager Red netmen.
Canterbury traveled to Gunnery three days later to be defeated, 5M-IM. Captai
Skillman, playing in the fourth slot, suffered the only loss of the day, Miller and Voionmaa
the second doubles team, split their match because of the late hour.
On the 26th of April the undefeated team was scheduled to meet Westminster
powerhouse, but due to rain the match was called and left unscheduled.
Taking to the road on the 30th, our racquetmen downed the Kent 2nds, 9-0. Brut
Hawley, holding the third position, played fine tennis to pull his match out in the thir
set. Dwight Miller, undefeated No. 5 man for the year, also won in three sets.
Traveling to South Kent May 3rd, the netters defeated a lighting South Kent liv
7-0. Chandler mastered his ground shots and over-head to conquer his opponent in tw
sets, while jim Shaw, in the No. 2 position, played his usual steady game to win easil
in two sets.
Back on the home courts, the Red and Gray edged out a victory over Trinity-Pawlini
5-4. Mertha, who holds a national ranking in the juniors, defeated Chandler 6-0, 6-0, eve
though Chuck played good tennis. Shaw again displayed steady, cool court action as lt
downed his opponent, 6-4, 6-3. Voionmaa easily defeated Trinity's No. 6 man in two set
May 10th brought Wooster back to the Gunnery courts to be swept again, 7-1
Inspired by their dates for the weekend, Captain Skillman and Hawley easily won the
matches. Auchinclbss teamed with Voionmaa to win the second doubles.
South Kent played a return match at Gunnery on the 14th of May. Duncan's netteg
downed the Red and Black, 6-1, the first doubles team of Chandler and Voionmaa losing i
two sets to a scrappy South Kent combination.
Our team suffered their only defeat of the year at Berkshire on the rainy afternoc
of May Zlst. In between the showers, which frequently interrupted play, the first for
ingles matches and first doubles were lost to the powerful Green netmen, making the
core 5-O. Skillman and Shaw, in the second doubles spot, had won the first set and were
htee-all in the second when rain halted the afternoons activities. Miller and Voionmaa
were also winning their singles when the rain came.
Playing the Taft 2nds at home on the 24th of May resulted in another victory for the
Led and Gray. The calibre of play was considerably better than was shown three days
efore at Berkshire as the racquetmen shut out the seconds, 9-0.
The last home match was played May 28th against Hopkins Grammar. Chandler
:ceived a defeat in singles and also in doubles with Voionmaa, but Gunnery tallied an-
ther victory to win 7-2.
The climax of the season came on May 30th at Canterbury. The strong Red netters
'hipped their opponents 7-O, adding to their already impressive record to make the final
utcome for the season 10 wins and 1 loss. Everyone displayed top form in this contest
1d it proved an easy match for the victorious Red and Gray netmen.
A great deal of credit goes to Manager Hank Ward for his fine work on the courts
id in managing the business of the team. Hank always was there when needed and the
am, along with Coach Duncan, joined in their thanks for a job well done.
Chuck Chandler, Gunnery's able No. 1 player, was elected captain for the 1953 tennis

On February 24, 1952, the entire student body par-

With the aid of the offices of major candidates,
vigorous campaigns were carried out within the school
for Taft, Warren, Eisenhower, and Stassen. Posters and
leaflets were used and a Stassen-Warren camp in the
form of a tent guarded over by a statute of Miss
6HoneybearD Warren. Broadcasts, coke parties, efhgy
burning and the traditional elephant adorned the scene.
On convention day the students, as delegates, each
represented different states or territories. The keynote
address was given by Gus Kellogg and this was fol-
lowed by the presentation of the party platform by
John Schereschewsky. The first roll-call was next and
produced the nominating speeches by Howell, Schine,
Mitchell, and Gorry. jones and Koven brought forth
their favorite son, Driscoll, as DeGraff and Guida
spoke for Nimitz. Each nomination was followed by
demonstrations given by loyal supporters.
Then came the voting in which Taft led for the first
two ballots, but as the Stassen-Warren coalition began
to swing towards Eisenhower the necessary majority
was reached and lke won on the third ballot.
The convention was a tremendous success and thor-
oughly enjoyed by both participants and spectators
alike. A great deal of credit goes to Ray DeRidder,
Director. Peter Eimas, Secretary, and to Dr. Custer and
Mr. Darbee, Faculty Advisors.
Campaign Managers were Leo Bretter, Taftg Harry
Oppenheim, lke, Bill Bitzer, Warren, and Pat Arch-
bald, Stassen. Through careful planning and execution,
they were responsible for the nation-wide acclaim
given this informative and enjoyable evening.
