VERITAS ET GAUDIUM
CREATED BY THE STUDENTS
OF THE PARK SCHOOL OF BUFFALO
It has often been debated, whether the first day of school in 1951, was a greater blow
to the Park School or to its newest faculty member. For that day Bradley Chapin will never
forget us, for the year it started we will always remember him.
Remember the snowball fight he started above the North Wall-the day he missed class,
because he'd been thrown in the Pond-the grin with which he so often terminated a class
twenty minutes ahead of time-his constant lending of knowledge to us until we could
develop our own-the many problems of class dances, colleges, and Senior theses which
he helped to solve with his wisdom, enthusiasm and experience-the smile which gave us
confidence-the understanding which made a gigantic dilemma insignificant?
We, the Class of 1953, remember and for these memories dedicate the SPARK to this
small, grinning and fearless dynamo.

Today, as every day, let us look forward unto the new horizon-the new horizon that
will bring a new light and a better life.
O God, help us to understand better that which cannot be readily seen, to feel that
which is hard to feel, and to hear that which cannot be heard, for we must reach out beyond
ourselves these days, with mind and soul, to renew our faith in things beyond our realm.
Help us young people, to find the road that leads to the good life, and keep us on that
road, though it have many a curve and many a hill. Give us courage to surmount those
hills, and to carry on, when the road seems roughest.
Help us, in these times, to see beyond the artificial luster, nowadays demonstrated so
Help us by giving us a true sense of values, on which to base our ideals and future goals
in life, by which properly to evaluate our ideas and pastimes, and better to understand
and control our emotions and passions.
Help us to know what is right, and to want to do what is right, for most of us know
perfectly well what we ought to do, but don't always do it. Thereby may we become better
individuals, and serve our country better. In Thy spirit's name we ask for this guidance.

Whether it's a Freshman girl asking for help, someone frantically
pleading for aid in designing a poster, the wrestling coach searching
for a lost man, or the audience yelling "encore!"--you can be sure
that Terry is the man wanted.
His sturdy spirit and determination give him that "up and at 'em"
attitude in his studies and in sports. This is seen in his performance on
this year's soccer team and as captain of this year's basketball team.
Terry's three years at Park have been characterized mainly by his
leadership, friendliness, sports ability, and his know-how-to-have-fun.
He has served in several class positions, among which was the iob of
Senior class president.
His efficiently placid dark-eyed exterior never gives hints of what
fires are ablaze beneath. He often gives the intentionally misleading
impression that his way with girls is completely their own idea. lWe
lt is the combination of energy, spirit, and modest efficiency which
makes Terry the likeable person he is.

"July, l957: Monsieur Paul Oppenheimer, the ambassador of good
will from America, arrived 'here in Paris today for a two years' stay.
Vous Stes le bien-venu, monsieur!"
It wouldn't be hard to imagine this in the "Paris Soir," since the very
mention of Paul recalls enthusiastic reports about Europe and his strong
determination to go back there soon. He certainly ought to fit in quite
well since his dress is worthy of an Englishman, and his generosity and
love of gaiety are unequaled by those of any Frenchman. His knowledge
of financial affairs would top that of any Scotchman, and his temper
could beat that of a Russian, Spaniard, and Italian all rolled into one.
Park School has profited from Paul's questioning spirit and desire for
real understanding which have stimulated many to re-examine the va-
lidity of some of their pet ideas, particularly since Paul's charm and
finesse make his criticisms easy to take.

"Got a problem?"-Call on Jean! You can be sure of getting the help
you need, whether it is turning the heel of a sock you are knitting or
organizing an important proiect. Jean's driving power has helped pub-
lish the LATEST at times when it seemed impossible to make the dead-
line. Her work on the Study Hall Committee has been the downfall of
many an unruly student, but she administered iustice fairly, and the
supervision of the study hall has reflected her influence.

in the difficult iob of coordinating in one program two very different
Extremely versatile, Jean has great ability also in the field of sports,
where she has both participated and led.
Because of her friendly outgoing personality, Jean is not limited to
serious pursuits alone. She is a good mixer, and has a variety of in-
terests both in and out of school.

The solid workmanship that is Harold's aim in his hobby, printing, also
makes him look for good organization and quality of performance in
all phases of our school life.
To any discussion he contributes from a wide range of experiences a
carefully considered iuclgement, but tempers his seriousness with a subtle
sense of humor and a pleasant smile.
Through his years at Park, Harold has made use of his special skill by
printing handbills, tickets, programs for many Park functions, and head-
lines for the LATEST. Because of his exacting sense of the value of money,
he was often called upon to serve as financial chairman. His success as
chairman of the Community Chest campaign in 1952 is proof of his
thoroughness and drive.
Because of this same spirit the football team depended on Harold's
power to tackle and block the opposing team, as well as the coach.
Besides participating also in wrestling and track he showed his general
interest in sportsmanship as manager of the basketball team and as a
member of the Athletic Committee during his Senior year.

We are fortunate to have such a talented person as Carol in our
midst. With her interest, ability and discrimination, Carol has been an
active member of this year's Production Committee. Her lively musical
sessions always draw an eager crowd and inspire our other virtuosos to
chime in. Especially at the "after-thesis" party Carol, along with the
other senior musicians, really sparked things up.
Carol modifies our blue Monday feeling with her cheery "Did you
have a good time this weekend?" Rousing ourselves from our weariness,
we think back to our date, look up at Carol's smiling face and sigh,
"maybe life isn't so bad after all!"
"With Carol even a blue note has to cheer up."

With the cry "something must be done about this!" Jean has delved
into every iob, from heading the Study Hall Committee or making posters
for Country Fair and productions to managing the business for the
LATEST. Her activities on the costume committee for our spring per-
formances have shown her exceptional capacity for work and her
Jean's fellow students respect her for her unfailing sense of right and
her inner need to uphold the right as she has seen it. From her deep
knowledge of human troubles rises an understanding of people and a
desire to help them with their problems.
But lest you see her as a solemn Cassandra, remember her sparkling
unconventionality, the unconcern with which she pokes fun at herself, her
ability to see the humor of incongruous situations and human foibles,
including her own.
"Time cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety."

"Nothing is impossible to the willing heart."
lf you ever need Bob, you'll probably find him enioying the sociable
atmosphere of Streeter. This haunt is like a second home to him, and he
is the one most responsible for keeping it neat for his classmates. Once
emerged from there he makes his way without over-agitation, smiling at
the frantic hustle about him.
But watch Bob in one of his more determined moods! When he suc-
cessfullyl assumes charge of the young fry in the school bus, it becomes
apparent that he has some qualities most valuable for his planned vo-
cation, social work, namely persuasive affability and determination to
create order out of chaos. As for showmanship and range of voice as
the Moth, he can easily vie with Yma Sumac.

Denny possesses perhaps the most tenacious school spirit in the Senior
class. He is never afraid to express his opinion in a school assembly, even
though others may not always agree with him. He takes his responsibili-
ties seriously and doesn't mind working hard in carrying them out.
In his academic work as well as in extra curricular activities Denny
shows tremendous drive and determination to succeed, as evidenced in
his work in the Chemistry Lab, on the Latest, and as Stephen in the
musical play, "Lost In The Stars."
Denny is a wrestler and has competed in many school matches. This
year he is captain of the team. Playing center he was an important
member of the football team also.

standing leader. She has been deeply concemed with understanding
the many problems that are posed by a true self-government of the

thought and firm convictions. '
Many a committee has sought her advice and cooperation, from sheer
menial tasks to important proiects, because they know they can count on
her to give the full measure of her attention and energy to a iob. As
program chairman this year, Peggy, with planning and foresight, has

A quarter score years ago Karl came forth from the backwoods of
Niagara Falls to the Park School. He was dedicated to the proposition
that nature is the best teacher, and that the wide open spaces are the
best school. Like his great prototype, honest Abe, however, he found a
consuming interest for the benefit of his fellowmen, in his case the study
of electricity and radio. lt seems altogether fitting and proper that Park
School profited from his accomplishments for its Spring productions and
dances, by making him chairman of its lighting equipment.
Karl's straightforward manner, his determination, and his clear sense
of values have won him the respect of his fellow students, and, as vice-
president of the Student Council, he has been their best guarantee that
government of the people, by the people, and for the people has not
yet perished from this earth.

Her classmates, too, have found this grueling experience relieved by

even on the gloomiest day. And yet, in her years with us we have come
to appreciate her as a genuine friend with deep'human insight, sensi-

Charlie, a most colorful character in word and deed, has advocated
the rights of the Uncommon Man throughout his Park School career. This
past yearlhe has been the governing force behind the Student Council
and the Constitutional Committee and has conducted all meetings with
characteristic dignity and humor.
Charlie has various means of expressing his unique sense of humor,
but in our intense philosophical discussions, he has shown deliberate
thought and a deep sense of values.
Charlie is o whiz on skis and a powerhouse on the football team, al-
though his spectacular touchdowns were not always given recognition
by the referees. However, he would rather run up the scales, than down
the field, and his trumpet has added some cool tones to the instrumental
combo of Sernotfsky, Finnell and Keeler.
From his properly-soiled white bucks to his collegiate pink shirt, Charlie
is a "Man of Distinction."

TO SPEAK OR NOT TO SPEAK
"Once to every man and nation comes the moment to decide." No truer words were
ever spoken, as I found out during the last part of the 1952 school term. I was one of the
ten people nominated for president of the Student Council. With the honor of the nomina-
tion also came the honor of giving a speech to the student body.
The person nominated had a chance to decline, if he didn't wish to become president,
or if he simply didn't want to deliver a speech. I must admit, at the time I didn't wish to do
The first thing I decided to do was talk to ci member of the faculty about my problem.
I discussed the issue with Miss Maggiore, and she explained to me how people in the same
situation had dealt with the problems. She also explained the duties of a president, and I
left the office with a good idea what was ahead of me. The choice was my own, I could
decline and therefore take the easy way out, or make the speech and stay in the running.
My first reaction toward giving the speech was not a very good one. I had let other
people make up my mind that it was difficult to give such a speech. But before I could
worry about giving the speech, I had to write it. ,
For two nights I thought about it and finally decided to weave my talk around one main
topic. This was unity, and from then on it was comparatively easy. With the outline of the
talk came the definite decision to go through with it. After the rough draft, I drew up the
speech and studied it until the day I wqs to present my piece of work to the student body.
I admit now I was pretty scared, not Because of the delivery, but because of the compo-
sition of the speeclm I didn't know how the student body would react to the criticisms and
suggestions for improvements from someone who had been far from an angel during the
past year. They received my speech very well, and when it was done, I was very pleased
that I had gone through with the task.
That night I evaluated my problem and came to this conclusion: I realized that if I had
declined, I would not have thought about the school and my personal reactions toward it.
I would have lost valuable experience in presenting a speech to a group of people. Last
and most important of all, I met a challenge and conquered it. This may help me in later
life in meeting another challenge of much more importance and meaning.
THE JUNIOR CLASS
The roof tops crusted with crisp white snow,
The trees bare, save for their branches bowed low,
The icicles hanging under the snow's weight
Like dripping fingers, the snow their fate.
The smoke whirling lazily from the chimney top
Gives vent to pine logs and pudding red hot.
The singing kettle, the merriment of gentle folk,
Scatter the fear of dark clouds-winter's shroudlike cloak. '

Notre vie est si courte, il faut I'employer,
lnstruisez-vous enfants, des l'age le plus tendre.
Vous serez malheureux si vous cessez d'apprendre,
Et c'est un iour perdu qu'un iour sans travailler.
Life is so short that we must try,
To do our best before we die.
Learn, when you are young of age,
Before life turns another page,
If you cease to learn too quick,
You will destroy that burning wick.
Work is fun, if you realize:
It also helps to make you wise.
Sandra Mols Grade X
How very short is our span of life,
That it passes us with little strife.
When we are all so very small,
We do our learning with no trouble at all,
But if we stop this in our youth,
Later on we'll know no truth.
For what is a day if we haven't done
Our work, our learning, and our fun?
Ann Prescott Grade X
Our lifetime is such a limited span.
Teach yourselves, children, all you can,
For a day will come, when you will regret
The work you ceased and tried to forget.

' sooo NIGHT
Good night to all the world below
The day is o'er, and the moon, old and slow,
Climbs in his beautiful chariot to the heavenly glow,
And behind him on his path, the little stars are twinkling so.
Good night to everyone we say,
To all the flowers-roses and lilies-, as our light fades away
Good night to my friends near and far,
and to the little birds, au revoir!
Good night my parents, for you are dear,
Near my bed I say my prayers for only God to hear!
Watch over me please, God of The Sky,
And make me good until I die!

THOSE T.V. BLUES
We've had our T.V. set awhile,
It's become a family craze.
I like to sit down with a smile
And drift into that T.V. haze.
I peer intently at the screen
Watching a story of World War ll.
Before me is a created scene
When all at once the picture's through.
Upon the screen appears the sign:
"The picture's bad, don't touch your set.
The trouble is hidden in the line."
I think, "How crazy can you get."
Soon the picture's working fine
And all is peaceful-that is, until-
The tube blows out, it starts to whine,
Or the neighbor next door turns on his dr:
We're quite convinced T.V.'s all right
To all of us that have the time
To sit and peer from noon till night.
And it's hard to make this last line rhyme

The Council, the governing body of Middle School, elects its oliiicers twice a year. Robbie
Robbins is this year's president. The same rules for council slips were kept as last yea r. Coun-
cil slips are given to those who break the rules of the school. A sub-committee also was
organized, which takes care of the Council slips and supervises the working-off of these.
The council started another sub-committee to help rewrite our Middle School constitution.
This revision has progressed to article tive, so tar.
We have had various visitors at our Middle School assemblies, one of which was Miss
Hani from Japan, another Tom Two-Arrows, an American lndian. The council authorized
another committee with several purposes, such as producing a magazine and functioning
as a service committee to help some hospital. The plans for Middle School Day are now
before the council.

The leadership of the Study Hall Committee provides us
with better control of our study halls. The members of all
tour classes share in the responsibility of proctoring each
day. A list of proctoring assignments is posted once a week.
Study Hall rules have been approved by the School As-
sembly, and offenders of these rules are tried by the Com-
This year the Student Council worked on several proiects.
It organized an Athletic Committee to replace the Hospi-
tality Committee of former years. In response to a request
made by the Freshman girls it authorized a Discussion Club
for them. It organized school assemblies in which money
from the Student Council Fund was allocated for a sound-
proot ceiling in the library as part of a proiect to improve
the physical appearance of the Upper School. The school
assembly passed a plan for the enforcement of school smok-
ing rules, presented by the Council. The revision of the School
Constitution, as foreseen by the Student Council, is under way.

This committee's main function is to keep order in the din-
ing room and arrange the seating list every week, so that
each pupil has a chance to become well acquainted with
the other members of the school. However, at the same time
the committee tries to make the dining room a cheerful place
without too many rigid restrictions, so that both, the pupils
and the faculty, may feel at ease and relax between the
, academic hours of the clay. This year the committee intro-
duced the idea of having announcements immediately after
Grace and the dismissal of each table as soon as everyone
there has finished eating. These aims the Dining Room Com-
mittee has successfully carried out.

This year, as a completely new committee, the Athletic
Committee has had some foundations to lay and has there-
fore not yet become a well-known part of the student ac-
tivities. It was organized a year ago to be responsible to
the council as co-ordinator of the functions of the Athletic
Department with the interests of the students and the faculty.
lt accomplished several effective means of hospitality for
visiting teams, started a new group of enthusiastic cheer
leaders, and began what will be a three year drive for new
girls' uniforms. These visible accomplishments are the results
of many extensive discussions laying the groundwork for a
strong committee, which will come to tie the sports program
and the students more closely together.

THE PRODUCTION COMMITTEE
Under the chairman, Patty Dodd, appointed by the Coun-
cil, the Production Committee composed of two members
from each class, one appointed and one elected, functioned
in the following manner: it organized the Eight Plays, to-
gether with the Middle and Lower School groups, it planned
an all-school assembly for Thanksgiving. For Christmas a
musical program with songs in French, latin and Spanish,
with readings from The Bible, and with choral and solo songs
was outlined. Under the guidance of Mr. Doblin, plays and
musical works were considered for the Spring Production.
"Lost in the Stars" was chosen for its musical and dramatic
qualities. The task of organizing and steering the various
committees co-operating to make the spring performance a
success is in the hands of the Production Committee.

Without burning the midnight oil and spending untold hours during spring vacation, the
Spdrk Boards got the yearbook to the printer on the deadline date this year. Two Spark
ad-days, set aside in October and November, brought in a considerable amount of the
advertising necessary to pay for the yearbook. On the suggestion of the Mothers' Council
all parents were told about a chance of patronizing the Spark, and we had a very satis-
factory response. Our amateur photographers supported the Art Board by taking pictures
of a variety of scenes around school, and, thanks to Mr. O'Connor, contributions were
streaming in to the Lit. Board.

suggestions made by the club members. Some of this year's topics have been: The Presi-
dential Elections, an essay "What is WorthwhiIe," and the planning of a Christmas party
for the entire Upper School. This was a great success and included a Latin skit, singing, and
unusual presents for the faculty. Another project was that of sending money to Holland for
Hood relief. The club has also contributed to the Class Day program. The club provides
an opportunity for the girls to learn to express themselves 'Freely in a public discussion, and
also to benefit by other people's viewpoints on various subiects. ,

lems. Topics for discussion have varied from social problems to how the class as a whole
can help improve the school and student relationships.
The Boys' Discussion Club is open to any boy in the Upper School who wishes to join it.
The club is more informal than the Girls' Discussion Club, however, it is not only for social
gathering and discussion, but a Club strictly for people genuinely interested in the topics
being discussed. The meetings are held in the Stone House on the school grounds, and the
boys bring their own dinners. After the re-organization of the Club last year it is proving
to be a very promising and worth while organization.

STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Do you ever have the feeling, as you are falling asleep,
of all the things you have to dq and figure in your mind how
to do them? I am often in this position and what am I to do
As I am falling asleep I think of all the letters I am to an-
swer. For weeks I have had Maggie's letter on my desk. Last
night I wrote, mentally, exactly what I wanted to tell her, of
mom and dad, of the dog, the fire in the summer house and
that I still loved her. This morning with pen in hand I can't
recollect a single idea that seemed so vivid iust last night.
The letters keep coming, and I never get anywhere. As fast
as I write them, I forget them.
In my musing I thought about how messy my closet was,
how unorganized my desk was and ofthe windows that must
be washed. What a system I have worked out to make these
tasks fun and simple! and darn it, this morning they seem like
the same old drudgery I have had to face for years.
I lay in bed the other night reciting over and over a poem,
that was assigned to me to learn in French class. Several
times in this mental recitation I forgot a word or a line and
was forced to turn on the light to review the piece. Then and
only then, was my mind fully at rest for a good night's sleep.
This art of daydreaming, or nightdreaming, as the case
may be, has me baffled, How might I be able to retain the
thoughts that I've had and to put them to use? Many hours
of the day are ,spent in this, frequently unproductive musing,
Sous les ifs noirs qui les abritent Under the shade of the black yews,
and how often do I get invaluable ideas that leave me as
quickly as they come.
My desire at this point is to retain these ideas, and trans-
pose daydreams into constructive thoughts. Most of the time
daydreams are wasted merely because they are not fol-
lowed by action. The solution is then to organize these ideas,
remember them and use them in order to accomplish what I
need to do.
LES HIBOUX THE OWLS
Les hiboux se tiennent ranges,
Ainsi que des dieux Strangers,
Dardant leur oeil rouge. lls meditent.
Sans remuer ils se tiendront
Jusqu'a L'heure melancolique,
Oir, poussant le soleil oblique,
Les tenebres s'6tabliront.
Leur attitude au sage enseigne
Qu'il faut en ce monde qu'il craigne
Le tumulte et le mouvement,
L'homme ivre d'une ombre qui passe
Porte touiours le chGtiment
D'avoir voulu changer de place.
The owls stood in a row.
Even as Pagan Gods they muse,
Beaming their red, dilated eye.
Motionless they'll stand side by side
Until the melancholy hour,
When the darkness undenied,
Envelops the dying sun.
Their wise manner teaches,him
That in this world one must fear
The tumult and movement.
He who follows a passing whim,
IHaving all but moved a little,l
Must always bear the punishment.
Tom Zierk Grade XI
"IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH"
The sun played gently on the new leaves of spring, defying the early dew, to take her
reign over God's peaceful and orderly world. The forest hummed a symphony atuned to
the day, as the warm rays fell between the trees in its green depth. Here the moss was
soft and cool, the air pure and the earth unscathed by the plow. The chipmunk, the 'possum,
and the deer lived in harmony and understanding for one another.,As the morning passed
a blue-iay announced her new young, another cocoon opened to emit the pastel colors
of the season, wild daisies burst their buds, and a doe arched her fine neck and braced
her graceful form to drink deeply from a pool of liquid sky. As Apollo reached his throne
the hum subsided, the forest rested. Laterfin the pink and gold of late afternoon, a
buck surveyed his domain from a clearing, and an oriole chirped his words of satisfaction.
When night fell the cricket and the frog kept watch with the mountain.
"And God said, let us make man . . . and let him have dominion over . . . everything . . .
upon the earth . . . "
The voice of industry screamed wealth, greed and success, mobs moved in together to
shriek in one voice for power. The earth was felled from heaven and God forgotten. No
longer could the buck be monarch with the mountain. No longer did the sun bring the wealth
of a day. Nature's assurance was gone. The struggle for survival began.
A winter sun groped through the clouds to find the land. It peered down on the mourning
earth, her face grey with the devastation of war. The squirrel looked warily from a hollow
stump and, noting the weighty silence that succeeds complete desertion, he hopped out.
Scurrying through barbed wire, fallen trees, and charrecl bodies he grovelled among ashes
and torn earth for food. He went to the pool to drink deeply. It was mud.
No bird sang. No animal lived. The forest had been taken, ruined, and left-
The heart of the earth groaned with the echo of the machine age and the vices of men.
Man had sacrificed God's world for money and power.

Writing the formula for a beiier future forall of us
In thousands of Engineering Departments throughout the nation, technically trained
men are busy designing the production machinery that contributes so much to our way
of life. Their object is to develop machinery that increases plant output and decreases
production costs. The Engineering Department at Lake Erie Engineering Corporation,
part of which is pictured above, has contributed much to this overall effort. By design-
ing ever more efficient production machinery, it has enabled the manufacturers of con-
sumer items such as automobiles, radio and television sets, refrigerators, washing
machines, etc., to produce better products for us at lower costs.
Producers uf hydraulic presses, die casting machines and special industrial machinery.
