Dear Mr and Mrs Moore
It IS wrth sadness that we of the Senror Class must mark the end of our
careers ar The Gunnery There IS of course a certarn degree of sadness at
all Commencements But our Commencement rs doubly sad because we must

As wrrh all rhrngs of value we and the boys at The Gunnery wrll not
realrze the full extent of our debt and grautude to you untrl we are no longer
under your rnfluence In a trme 1n our l1ves when farrh leadershrp and
dependabrhry were espec1ally vrtal ro our welfare you were that example we
needed so badly
Our only consolarron rs that you wlll conrrnue ro lrve 1n Washrngton
where many Gunnery boys ro come may strll benefit from your frrendshrp
Thank you Chaplarn and Mrs Moore

JOHN WARNER MOORE
The Senlor Class of 1954 respectfully and gratefully dedncares
rh1s yearbook to john Warner Moore, Chaplaln of The Gunnery
It has been the object of this Refi and Gmg to publish as accurate and as
complete a record and memento of the School Year 1955 54 at The Gunne y
as possible The compiling of data and material about this past year was as in
my year a long and sometimes difficult task This work has made us survey more
closely however the incidents experiences and accomplishments of the year It
is not difficult to cite several noteworthy gains in the progress and development
of the School
First of all The Gunnery opened in the fall with an enrollment of 141
boys the largest in its history Space and facilities permitting the population
of the School is expected to be even larger in the coming year
The mention of space and facilities brings to mind the completion of the
long awaited Memorial Activities Burlding Here at last is a structure which
satisfies many of The Gunnery s needs Besides providing domitory space for
fifteen students the building also provides a room for the study and exhibition
of art a snack bar a lounge complete with television and high fidelity phono
gymnasium Here not only is a completely useful building but also something
which embodies the efforts and contributions of many people for The Gunnery
during its one hunderd and four years
The Gunnery was extremely active internationally as five Seniors from
the graduating class were awarded English Exchange Scholarships for study
in England for the coming year An additional Senior was awarded a scholar
ship for study in France during the summer There were also three boys from
England Greece and Siam enrolled this year Durmg the winter term The
Gunnery was visited by two boys from Korea and the Phillipines Also note
worthy in the scholastic field was the election of five Seniors to the Cum Laude
Needless to say the most important gains the intangible ones cannot be
measured exactly or at this time But The Gunnery N eu: seemed to come the
closest to it when it said With the graduation of thirty six men of the Class
of 54 the School is saying good bye to one of the most responsible senior classes
in School history
It has entailed a great amount of toil to prepare and publish this 1954
Red and Gray but if we have succeeded in producing a yearbook of permanent
not just temporary interest then our primary goal has been attained

1953 FOOTBALL REVIEW
The 1955 Vars1ty football team posted a two win one tie and four
loss scoreboard However only one opponent Trinity Pawlmg scored more
than thirteen points They scortd nineteen points
With two returning lettermen Coach Beebe had one week to mold a
team from these and new material before the opener with Wooster in Dan
bury October 3 The forward line paced by Captain Ed Munson Jim Turn
bull and Dwight Miller kept the Wooster defense to a minimum Wooster
annexed both its touchdowns on pass intercepnons adding one extra pomt
The second half showed a reluvenated Gunnery team score on an aerial
from Boone to Phelon, leaving the final score in favor of Wooster, 13-6.
The following Saturday The Gunnery met a Pomfret contingent on
Barnes Memorial Field. In the second period, Boone fired to Phelon and
the home team drew first blood. The extra point was wide as The Gunnery
went ahead 6-0. Shortly after, Fred Sessa gunned a bullet pass to Larry
Downs who carried the ball into the end zone. jack Dillon split the uprights
and the final count read 13-O. Both ends, Larry Downs and john Hoben,
and guard Dave Miller displayed excellent offensive and defensive play.

The opening of the l9D5 Soccer season wit
nessed the return of only three lettermen Cap
tain Dick Clarke john Fisher and Bob Mortell
from the preceding year The team literally ran
through its first two w eeks of practice under new
coaches Mr john Riccitelli and Mr Michael
Post to ready itself for the first game
The initial contest was played October 8
with Forman providing the opposition on the
home field From the start the game resolved it
self into a battle of defenses The first goal of the
season by ohn Fisher in the first period was
match d by Forman in the second and it was
not until the second overtime period that Brit
ish Exchange Student Bob Horwood decided
the contest with a timely tally
The second game followed on the heels of the
first two days later and the final whistle showed
the Red and Gray on the short end of a l 0
score at Lenox Despite a momentary lapse in the
defense early in the first period backs Clarke
Horwood and Zeffiro did a good job protecting
Back on familiar territory October 14 the
team regained winning form in edging Canter
bury in a close match l 0 The goal materialized
late in the second half on a hard drive into the
nets by Fisher but it was only spectacular goal
tending by Larry Hoyt who thwarted a late
attempt on a penalty shot that preserved the
On the road for the second time the team
suffered a heartbreaking l-0 loss October 17 at
the hands of a scrappy Choate J.V. club. Mortell
and Stenstream filling in for the absent Zeffiro
were outstanding in defensive roles.
The Big Red suffered its third defeat October
21 at Washington against Berkshire 5-2. The
Green was far superior and only goals by Mac-
Kenzie and Fisher averted a shutout.
The best game of the season was played three
days later at Kingswood. Early in the third quar-
ter Fisher headed in an out-of-bounds kick by
Morrell to give The Gunnery a 1-O lead. This
lasted until a desperate Kingswood team tied it
up with less than two minutes remaining. Slater
Vartes and Clarke were standouts in this ex-
tremely rough contest.

VARSITY BASKETBALL REVIEW
The Red and Gray opened its annual pursuit of the Tri State League basketball title
December 9 1953 against Trinity Pawling in Washington and permitted the visitors to
steal the game in the closing seconds 61 60 With only five seconds remaining the Beebe
men held a seemingly insurmountable four point ads antage but Trinity Paw ling employ
ing a full court press stole the ball twice for drive in scores and added one foul shot to
take the victory Larry Downs topped the scorers with 34 points while Bob Mortell followed
with 17 markers
With the season recommencing after the Christmas vacation the team yourneyed to
Berkshire January 13 where it won handily 57 48 Off to a slow start leading by only
three points at the half 31 78 the Red and Gray pulled away in the third stanza ably
assisted by Downs and Mortell who assembled 27 and 16 points for the day
Appearing against the perennial League title challengers Kent on the Kent floor

doubt for after the first quarter the visitors never narrowed the gap to less than four
points Downs was again the leading scorer with 37 points Mortell being next with 10
They could not however match Kent s trio of Topham Drouet Hughes which amassed
a total of 59 points
Returning home anuary 70 the ct urt men smothered a small Hotchkiss team mostly
under the boards to triumph 50 34 The losers how ever were in the ball game for the
first two quarters trailing by only three at the half Restricting the visitors to only two
field goals during the third period the quintet subsequently pulled away never to be
headed again Once more the durable Dow ns led the scorer with 73 points while Mortell
romped to an easy victory with newly elected captain Dow ns registering 71 of his 30
points in the first half
The next encounter found Mr Beebe s forces at Canterbury anuary 77 where they
coasted to another easy win 63 47 The match seemed a fair one up until the inception
of the third period when with Dow ns and Mortell totaling 74 points between them in this
frame the contest became a rout
Home again anuary 30 for their second game with Berkshire the Beebemen glided
to a 58 39 decision thus bringing thetr record to a respectable 5 wins and 7 losses With
Downs recording 10 of his 76 points in the first quarter and the Red and Gray defense
led by 6 7 Bob Mortell holding the Green scoreless from the floor the winners were
never passed Phelon and Mortell follow ed in the scoring with 10 and 9 points respectively
With the Tri State League title x irtually at stike the team trax eled to Taft February 4

Morrell followed him with 16 markers
On the road once more the Red and Gray tackled a quick and alert Trlnlty Pawlmg

VARSITY HOCKEY REVIEW
Greeted by favorable weather plus the renovation of the rrnks and the
construction of two new hockey houses the Gunnery skaters looked forward
to a pleasant season However the record at the end of the term revealed the
Varsity sextet with a slate of one win and eight losses
After spending the first week shovelmg snow The Gunnery encountered
its first opponent Canterbury january 13 rn Washington The Red and Gray s
inexperrence and lack of practice aided Canterbury in annexmg a 2 0 victory
anuary 23 the hockey team traveled o Trinity Pawling where it regis
tered 1ts first and only win trimming T P 4 1
In the first period Ken Adams put the Red and Gray in the lead with a
solo shot This advantage was increased to 3 0 as Dwight and Dave Miller
each netted the disk unassisted in the second stanza George Wallen accounted
for the fourth goal midway through the final stanza A minute later the home
team scored its lone tally
Starting the first of its six straight League contests the sextet played Kent
anuary 31 on Gunnery ice Kent took the game easily scoring seven goals
while blankrng the home forces Regardless of the score Dick Krasow was
outstanding in the nets fouling many Kent attempts to increase the lead
The next day South Kent was the scene of an embarrassing rout as South
Kent accounted for three points in the first period six in the second and five
in the third to trounce The Gunnery 14 O
February 4 Taft on its own rink soundly drubbed The Gunnery 9 0
Taft the eventual League Champ tallied four in the 1n1t1al stanza one in the
second and four in the fmal frame In the middle period the Washington force
tightened its defense greatly and played excellent hockey against the vastly
superior Taft contingent Captain Dick Krasow played excellently making
numerous difficult saves However the remaining third of the game was
similar to the opening period as Taft once more overpowered the visiting
The Orange and Black of Westminster visited Washington February 6

VARSITY HOCKEY REVIEW
The Gunnery came closest to winning a League game February 11 when
Hotchkiss registered a 5 3 decision over the Red and Gray on Washington ice
Halfway through the initial period Adams passed to Dwight Miller who
put The Gunnery in the lead 1 O Hotchkiss turned the tables completely
however in the next period as it rang up three tallies in five minutes Later in
the same stanza Adams receiving a pass from Powell made the score 5 2
Forty five seconds later Dave Miller tied the count with an unassisted goal
The Gunnery never scored again but Hotchkiss scored the game clinching
goal early in the first frame and then added an insurance goal in the closing
Sporting a League record of five defeats and an over all one of a single
victory and six losses the Red and Gray sextet played its final League game
with Berkshire February 13 tn Sheffield Mass Playing on the season s best ice
Berkshire annexed a 2 O triumph scoring both of its goals in the opening
period Dick Krasow amassed a total of 43 saves for The Gunnery to thwart the
On the season s poorest ice Salisbury completed The Gunnery s string of
defeats with a 3-1 victory February 24 at Salisbury. Salisbury chalked up one
goal in the first frame and two more in the second. Dwight Miller flipped the
puck to Ken Adams who scored the loser's lone tally. Captain Dick Krasow
ended his hockey career at The Gunnery with another of his customary splendid
performances as goalie.
With the new rinks hockey houses and jeep all that is needed to help
hockey in future years is that continually lacking element cold weather. The
start of the 54 winter seemed to promise low temperatures for at least most
of the winter but midway through February the familiar thaw appeared and
persisted for the remainder of the season.
The Red and Gray would like to wish players coaches and newly-elected
captain Ken Adams the best of luck in their 1955 season. It would also like
to take this opportunity to commend Captain Dick Krasow not only for his
outstanding play which won him a place as goalie on the League All-Star team
but also for the splendid job he did as captain in holding the team together
through extremely discouraging times.

PHELON D P MILLER B SCHERESCHEWSKY
1954 BASEBALL REVIEW
As Coach Edward Buxton surveyed h1s baseball prospects on the soggy
diamond in those rainy days of April he had four lettermen from the previous
season s team Captain Bob Phelon and Dave Miller both on the first nine for
three years and G11 Williams and jim Conley The early performances of
some newcomers seemed to promise a successful season
In its opener April 21 at Kent the Red and Gray dropped a 5 4 decision
when Kent pushed across the winning run on a squeeze play in the tenth
inning ack Manning was the starting pitcher but was relieved by Tom
Brownell in the fifth The Gunnery led through most of the game but lost the
lead in late innings Brownell led the batters with a triple and single
Three days later the team opened the home season by losing 4 2 to Trinity
Pawling Steve Sumner was reached for four runs on four hits in the first
lnfllllg but pitched shutout ball allowing one hit for the duration of the game
Griggs and Williams crossed the plate for the losers two runs
April 28 The Gunnery met South Kent at home in a slug fest The Red
and Gray took the game 10 9 as Bob Phelon drilled three home runs winning
the contest in the ninth with a three run homer He batted in eight runs for
the day Brad Schereschewsky banged out four hits while Bob Vfyckoif ac
counted for three safeties
At Lakeville May 1 the Red and Gray took an early one run lead against
Hotchkiss The home team countered with four runs in the fifth and one rn
the seventh to triumph 5 2 Brownell went the distance allowing five hits and
batting out two himself
The Gunnery lost its fourth game on May 5 as Wooster edged the Buck
men 4 3 in Danbury Hits by Phelon, Brownell, Manning, and Dave Miller
gave the v1s1tors a 3 2 lead in the sixth inning but Wooster retaliated with two
in the same inning to take the game Manning and Sumner shared hurling
duties giving up five hits and two earned runs
Brownell narrowly missed a no hitter at Canterbury a week later as
WILLIAMS D D MILLER GRIGGS
1954 BASEBALL REVIEW
Ireland singled in the seventh The pitching of Brownell plus hits by Phelon
Downs and Dave Miller gave The Gunnery the 3 I victory
After a postponement the Red and Gray played a League game with
Choate in Washington May 17 The visitors took the game 7 5 in ten innings
Brownell was the chucker being rapped for ten hits and four earned runs
WyckoH and Schereschewsky each had two singles
May 19 at Berkshire The Gunnery took a 5 2 decision over the Green
A double by Phelon and a hit by Dave Miller drove in the necessary runs for
the win Sumner was the Gunnery pitcher giving up six hits and fanning
Salisbury was the scene of a 2 0 shutout May 24 The contest was settled
in the third and sixth innings as Salisbury scored two unearned runs while
touching Manning and Sumner for one hit during the entire game
The Varsity carried a one run lead into the sixth against Loomis on the
Gunnery field two days later but the visitors tallied twice in the sixth and five
more times in the seventh to record a 7-1 win. Brownell pitched the whole
game. Phelon and Dwight Miller each supplied a pair of hits for the losing
Canterbury avenged its previous defeat as the Red and Gray played a
sloppy game before an Alumni Day throng May 29. Sumner pitched well but
received poor support as there were five errors. Brownell Phelon and Scheres-
chewsky each produced two hits.
The I954 baseball season ended june 2 in Washington as The Gunnery
lost to Taft in an eleven inning League tilt 5-2. Brownell chucked allowing
eight hits and striking out nine. Again sloppy fielding was the reason for the
The season's record of 3-9 was not at all indicative of the teams poten-
tial. A tendency to commit costly errors in bunches, plus an apparent inability
to hit with men on base, were the principal reasons for the poor showing. The
team's leading hitter, Bob WyckoE, was elected captain for the 1955 campaign.

Among the large number of prospective bladesmen who presented them
selves at the Crew Squad s first practice session on Lake Waramaug Coach Beebe

1954 CREW REVIEW
May 15 was the occasion in Worcester Mass of the annual Quinsigamund
Preparatory School Regatta the crew mens World Series The Gunnerys

In the morning qualifying heat the first shell placed Hrst followed by
South Kent and Salisbury In the afternoon finals The Gunnery s Seconds were
fourth behind Brown and Nrchols South Kent and Belmont Hill Also note
worthy was the victory of Tom Thornbury and Fred Beck who teamed with
two rowers from Brown and Nichols to take that special event
Traveling to Salisbury May 21 the First Boat was victorious but the
Seconds and Thirds were defeated. In taking the First Boat race by one and
one-half lengths the First Crew paced by jay Thomson at stroke with jack

All hazl the name and fame of our old Gunner y
Through scores of years her sons have dr unle her health
And brought therr gzfts of love and loyalty and self
To mark thezr thoughts of days of work and glee
So onward go her name and fame forever'
So outward goes our pledge of fazth rn thee'
Let all true sons szrz g loud thezr prazses ever
To our azr Alma Mater dear old Gunnery
There ne er wzll be a place so lzlee a home to me
My mzrzd u rll turn to thoughts of years at Gunnery
To schooldays u hen the paths o lr e were lard
The happy hours whzch now seem short and fr ee rom care
The houyant hearts u hzch of lzfe s grze 14 ere har e
They fill my heart and make the hlzght of age to flee
