PURPLE Q W
4'Do you know what time it is?" can
he a literal inquiry to keep an appoint-
ment, a sophisticated expression as in the
popular song, ul Know What Time It ls
Now," or a richly figurative expression
on a sun dial, alt is later than you think."
Thousands of years ago the Prophet in
Ecclesiastes said, UTO every thing there is
a season, and a time to every purpose
under the heaven: a time to be born, and
a time to die, . . . a time to kill, and a time
to heal, . . . a time to get, and a time to
lose, . . . a time to keep silence, and a
time to speakg a time to love, and a time
to hate, a time of war, and a time of
peace." In this troubled world it behooves each of us to use our own ca-
pacities to the full for our personal futures and for the welfare of society.
It is a time for action, not inertia, for confronting issues squarely, not escap-
ingg for resetting sight lines, not using rose-colored glasses. Let us each
determine what our dearest possessions are, what sacrifices they are worth,
what ultimate outcomes we are willing to fight for, physically and morally.
Recently in the United Nations, Warren Austin said, "Radar is not more
sensitive to atmospheric vibrations than the personalities . . . here . . . are
to the political atmosphere of our times." We must all cultivate that aware-
ness and perception to make the .right decisions and to avoid tragic mistakes.
As you become increasingly mature, may such wisdom be yours.

W e, the class of 1951, dedicate this book to Mr.
Schwing for the great job he has done in guiding us
through our high school career.
W e are especially indebted to Mr. Schwing for what
he has done for us in order that we might have our senior
activities, despite the non-extra curricular activities pro-
gram. Through his tireless eforts we have kept one
thing which we cherish and look forward to most-our

Many years ago with quaking fear I entered T.I-I.S.
The future lay before me, and the seniors too, I guess.
Initiation swallowed me, and I had lots of fun.
Although my knees were well worn out before the dayld begun.
And then I was a sophomore-that year went very fast.
Who worries 'bout the future when they've yet to find the past?
The freshies were amusing to my wisdom-clouded eye-
We were never quite so silly in those freshman days gone hy.
As a junior I discovered that soon I'd graduate,
But those plans for the future still had a year to wait.
I'd be a doctor, or a journalist, or if worse come to worse
I could always be a genius, and explorer or a nurse.
Oh, the future from a Senior's view was wonderful and sweet,
I saw the monarchs of the future drop their sceptres at my feet.
Plainly marked was my pathway from the spot on which I stood.
If I couldn't rise on Broadway, I'd star in Hollywood.
Oh, pity then that senior full of visions long ago
I-Ier star was struck to earth by a devastating hlow,
I married a boy whose dreams were just like mine,
Now he works in S.S. White's to support our children nine.

week as a Hag pole sitter to ex-
press his feelings against the
current losing streak of the New
York Yankees. His only contact
with the events going on is with
his go-between Red Palmer. Red
brings him his food, mail and
baseball results every day. Dick
says he is completely content on
his perch although it is a little
wet when it rains. He resolves to
remain on the pole until the Yan-
kees are in first place again. They
are now in third place but they're
slowly climbing to first place.

Daniel Green, the handy boy,

manner hit Fifi on the head. She

sen has returned to his three-hour
TV show on Tuesday nights. He
brought back the ancient jokes
he has been using for the last five
years along with some new ones
that he recently stole from other
comedians. As guest stars he had
the famous gorilla acrobatic team
of Spotty, Mickey, and Duchess.
They performed their stellar act
of swinging from rafter to rafter
on the ceiling while hellowing at
tlte top of their lungs. The only
casualty of this act was the cam-
eraman who got seasick while
following the swinging from raft-
er to rafter to rafter.
Another guest star was the fa-
mous operatic star Joan Jenkins.
She sang her renowned version of
"Frankie and Johnny." Of course

closed the show with his cus-
tomary saying to all his little
nieces and nephews.

"Since it seems likely that there
will be another shortage of man-
power, women are to be drafted
into the armed forces," was the
statement released by General
Dorothy Bundesen today. General
Shirley Ellis, who is in charge of
the Home Defense, added that the
women draftees will naturally see
action in the front lines. She be-
lieves that after the enemy real-
izes that there are women on the
front lines they will take to cover
and give up.
Tom Morrissey, a reporter for

ON MAIN sr.,
Today, Tuesday, Jan. 10, 1970,
at 11:52V2, there was a lot of ex-
citement on Main Street, Totten-
ville. The car, driven by Miss
Kay Jacobsen fa woman driver
againi, ran into a telephone pole
whiclt, when it fell, hit Miss Bar-
bara Hayes, a by-stander, on the
head. The police were right on
hand, as usual. Patrolman Dick
Ainsworth, came rushing up to
Miss Hayes and asked what hap-
pened. She replied, "I was hit
on the head by a toothpick." At
this moment the little woman in
the white suit, Miss Evelyn Green,
arrived to carry her away.
It was released yesterday in
the Scientific Journal of the
World that after 20 years of con-
centrated effort, the two oceans
were made level, making it possi-
ble for canals to be made easily.
As soon as Mr. Carlton graduated
from Tottenville High School he
began his work. He worked con-
stantly trying to find a way to
make them level by a scientific
and easy mechanical manner. He
finally had to bring the extra
water by bucketfuls from the
higher ocean to the other one.
Mr. Carlton probably will receive
the Nobel Prize award for his
great contribution to the progress
of the world.
Thus, renowned American en-
gineer Robert Carlton, finally
completed his life-long ambition.
The Misses Eleanor Pellikan
and Shirley Brower, co-authors

ADVICE TO THE
by Peggy Dunlop
Dear Aunt Peggy:
After receiving your advice as
to mending my heart, I find that
I've gotten nowhere fast. I have
just returned from my boy-
friend's funeral. I'm heart-broken.
He died all of a sudden the other
night from the cake you told me
to bake. Now I think I have a
new beau-the undertaker who
buried poor Joe. What I wanted
to know is-should I give him a
cake, too-also-where can I buy
Aunt Peggy's Candy? I couldn't
get it anywhere. Please help mend
my broken heart and hook that
M. E. Bochino
Dear M. E.:
You were extremely wise not
to use your first name as you
might be recognized, I recall your
past letter and remember sending
my advice. You recall I said,
"Feed your man lots of cake. If
it doesn't work, arsenic you
Then I told you, if arsenic
doesn't work, Aunt Peggy's
Candy will! Through some error,
my letter was printed as follows:
"Feeding your man lots of ar-
senic, baked in a cake, it's a very
cute trick." We all make mistakes
-never despair, my dear.

The opening of the new vaude-
ville show, Old Timer's Revue,
was proclaimed a success last
night after the appearance of two
comedians, Mike and Bill, known
in private life as Michael McCor-
mick and William Siersema.
Their act consisted of such new
jokes as, "Why did the chicken
cross the road, to get to the other
side," and some renditions of the
favorite songs such as "Good-
night Irene," which they are
planning to revive.
When asked after the show
about their great success, they

A GREAT DAY
FOR THE IRISH
Courageous nurse, Nancy Ryan,
was recently accredited for saving
the lives of three women mission-

aries, Miss Kent, head missionerg
Miss Unger, head missionistg and
Miss Reis, head missionister of
the Bail Saiii, in deep Africa,
were captured by the Bombo-
Trombone Trive last Tuesday.
Nurse Ryan bravely trailed the
missionaries to the tribe head-

Popiniff found it a fair bargain
to swap his captives for a carton
of Carter's Little Silver Pills. All
four women are resting comforta-
bly in Hayview Sanatorium.

The new owner of the chain

made the shocking and sad dis-
covery that nothing in her stores

tends to do something about it,
when she untangles herself from

She claims she is making prog-

Mr. Alan Bailey, of the Ahlin-
Bailey Science Foundation, has,
this week, astounded Modern
Science with his accurate the-

Harold Ahlin, received a severe
shock, not only from Mr. Bailey's
theories, but also from his ru-

again. Ginny, alias "Sugar Pie,"
wants a million dollars from the
Higsby, Higsby, and Higsby Jr.
Recording Company for a con-
tract they have proposed to her.
The contract calls for Ginny to
sing the seventeenth verse of
Rachmaninoff's Eleventh Sym-

be just wonderful." They want
her to sing it from atop the flag
pole on the Empire State Build-

of July. She said the whole thing
is utterly absurd. She never rises
until 12:30 P.M.

QUIGS DO IT
Last night at the Tottenville
Arena the little Quigs did it
again! They were victorious by a
score of 98-1. Their opponents,
Bob and all the little Nielsens,
went home with very sad faces.
Alma Quigley was high scorer for
the Quigs with 95 points. After
the game, Alma was asked how
she managed to be so outstanding.
She replied, blushing, "Aw that
ain't nothin'. You should see me
when I'm in condition."
A new race track, "The Gooey
Gateway," has just been opened
up by the two famous jockeys,
Georgia Dennis and Carole Dil-
gard. Such fine race horses as
Icky and Sticky will race there.
Shortly after this had been re-
ported, the prospective owners
announced that in the winter the
track shall be flooded and there
would be horse racing on skates.
Babsy Deschaux, well known

he explains, "There are no engi-

new and pretty has been added
to the history of the U.S. Today
the first woman president was
unanimously elected. She is none
other than the incomparable
Marylou Matthews. President
Matthews passed her first law
four hours after election. The
new law states that all subway,

handling the curtains will be
placed under arrest, then declared
next week to be National Curb
Polishing week. She insists that
all curbs and sewers must be

BIEL VS. HEER-
A conference is being held at
the Billop House in Tottenville
for the first time in 175 years.
The Board of Elders is trying to
decide whether Harry Biel is in-
nocent or guilty for the serious
heart attack of Marilyn Heerlein.
This was brought about by the
fact that Mr. Biel was wearing
blue and white striped slacks in-
stead of his usual levis. Miss

SINGER TO MAKE
DEBUT IN HOME
The famous alto singer, Miss
Ethel Brown, is going to make a
personal appearance in Legion
Hall. She will sing some selec-
tions from the hit opera, "Life of
a Swordfish," by Barbara Corson.
The alto part will be rendered by
Miss Brown, but there will' be no
soprano part due to the fact that
Miss Corson has not yet com-
pleted writing it.

Baseball was pushed to greater
heights today when Johnny Ku-

It was a cold and bitter night, the snow was falling heavily as a little boy
trudged wearily down the street. All around him people were bustling about,
finishing their last minute shopping or shouting a greeting to a friend. Over
the rush of the crowd could be heard the chimes softly playing: "Silent Night,
Holy Nightf' letting you know it was Christmas. Yes, Christmas was here at
last, and a little boy stopped by a store and looked in through the window
at the beautiful, bright new toys. He was imagining himself in a big room,
with a Christmas tree, and under the Christmas tree were packages, dozens
of packages, all gayly wrapped in shining red ribbon, and on the tag was
marked-"To Joey on Christmas." Yes, it was fun to dream, dream about a
Merry Christmas. His thoughts were suddenly shattered as a gay group came
laughing by and shoved little Joey aside. Joey picked himself up.
'6Oh how I hate Christmas," he cried with tears running down his face.
His mother and father had both been killed in a plane crash three years before
and it left little Joey an orphan at the age of six. He thought about the or-
phanage from which he had escaped. He didn't like the orphanage, he always
though it was a place for children whose parents didn't want them. Ever
since he first came to the orphanage, he had hated it. He had never felt at
home there and had never made many friends.
While he was standing there he felt someone tap him on his shoulder and
say, '4Merry Christmas, son." Turning, he saw a man who appeared to be
middle-aged. He had on a shabby blue coat, his shoes were badly sodden
from the weather, on his head .was a battered hat which looked like it had
been worn out several times. Clinging to this arm was a little girl about J oey's
age who was dressed as shabbily as the man. As Joey was about to shout at
the man and tell him he hated Christmas, he noticed something about the
little girl, who now was tugging at the man's arm saying, "Who is it Grandpa,
who is it?" "lt is a little boy,', the man replied, "Pvc just wished him a
It was then that Joey realized that the little girl was blind. Ashamed,
Joey blurted out a weak Merry Christmas, and as they passed him Joey heard
the little girl exclaim with delight about the music and the gay noise all
around her. Joey imagined himself in her shoes and shuddered. It seemed
in that minute Joey grew up. He had been feeling sorry for himself, never
thinking about other people. Now he knew that he was just being selfish.
He realized that Christmas was the time of forgetting your sorrows, and to
stop running away. Running away wasn't going to solve anything. Christmas
was the time to give, not look to receive, and also for making others happy.
"Well," thought Joey, "this is a Merry Christmas after all," and with
those thoughts in his mind and a smile on his lips, Joey turned swiftly and
marched happily back to the orphanage.
jlte Unifecl Wafionzi
These days we are all told to respect and appreciate the United Nations.
A little task like this is nothing at all for me. I have the United Nations in
my blood. Or, at least, I have the blood of the United Nations in me.
I've got English in me. The English are said to be slow to get a joke. This
is utterly absurd. One day in a History class a boy spoke as follows: HMost
of the houses in France are made of Plaster of Paris." The whole class, of
course, except me, roared with laughter. I can't see anything funny in the
situation. The boy's ignorance is deplorable-not amusing. I've heard peo-
ple tell me I don't smile. I donit smile because I don't laugh. I didnit laugh
because I'm still waiting to hear a joke that's funny.
I have Scotch in me. The Scotch are supposed to be penny-pinchers.
This is ridiculous. I've never heard anything so outrageous in my life. Per-
haps I do use a crook-resistant, burglar-proof padlock on my wallet-and
perhaps I do bake biscuits to use as Christmas presents for the hockey team
every year-simply proof of the sensible saving and flair for economy which
is a virtue of the Scottish people.
I've got Spanish in me. The Spaniards are said to be adept dancers.
This is something with which I heartly agree. Just look at all the boys l've
danced with-there isn't more than one with a cast still on his foot. There's
only one thing that worries me-I wonder Why my dance partners so often
wear combat boots and shin guards?
The German in me is something of which I am exceptionally proud. And
the claim that the Germans are stubborn is about the silliest one yet. Iim a
typical German. I've never been known to reverse a decision in my life. I
still think that my definition of glycerine as a vicious liquid which is miser-
able in water in all proportions is better than any old stuffy Chemistry book.
We simply have confidence in our infallibility and absolute conviction that we
are right but this is no indication that we Germans are stubborn.
0i'm after havin' Oirish in me too. And judgin' by the likes of me-
we Oirish haven't got the temper we're supposed to have. And the next time
one of you lf,'q'.',.l' Q23 claims we've a temper, Oi'l1 gie ye the back oime hand
so fast ye won't know what happened.
One of these days, I plan on setting up my private United Nations. When
I disagree with myself-I've always got the veto. When the Scotch in me
refuses to appropriate money, the German gets stubborn about a concession
to be made, the Irish loses its temper, and the Spanish is over in a far corner
doing the fandango-I can always rely on the English to ask-"Blast it all,
old chaps, I really don't see just what the trouble is. Would you bully fellows
sit down and explain the bloody thing to me?,'
The house lights dim, the conductor's baton is poised, and a hush falls
upon the audience as the first strains of Shubertis "Unfinished Symphonyn
are heard. The world famous New York Philharmonic Orchestra, you say?
No, it isn,t the Philharmonic, nor for that matter, the N.B.C. Symphony
Orchestra nor the Goldman Band. As you have guessed by now, we are talk-
ing about what we believe to be one of the finest musical organizations of its
kind, The Tottenville High School Band under the baton of its accomplished
maestro, Mrs. Lala Wilson.
Our band was organized in 1937 and gave its first performance at the
Christmas assembly of that year. It began playing at graduations, and begin-
ning at the commencement of Wo1'ld Wai' Two, it set out on an intensive war-
time program. It played at most of the war monument dedication ceremonies
on the South Shore. Since most members of the bands which customarily
marched in the national parades were gone, the Tottenville High School
Band volunteered its services. In the interest of public moral it cooperated
with the American Legion and participated in several of their performances.
It continued with its annual and semi-annual evening concerts alongwith the
graduation ceremonies and assemblies. Later on it commenced to play at the
May Day fete at Clove Lake. ln 1948, it played a major part in the successes
of the Colden Jubilee. Later, in 1950, the band played and made possible
another tremendous success, '4The Womanless Wedding.',
As these last four years have passed we have seen our fellow band mem-
ber gradually leave and new members gradually take their places and we
reminisce over these wonderful fruitful years we have spent in our '4Band of
Bandsu which has been made possible only through the untiring efforts of our
own Mrs. Lala Wilsoil. Her devotion to her band and her ukidsi' has made
all of our successes as triumphant as they are.
Everything worth having has a beginning and our Euterpean Society
had its beginning way back in 1937, with Mrs. Wilsoii as its progenitor.
When Mrs. Wilson first arrived on the scene, Tottenville High boasted
of a rather large and loud glee club. Large-because it consisted of a hun-
dred or more members and with this many members I imagine that it was
loud! However, some of this group along with Mrs. Wilson agreed, that with
a smaller group they would be able to concentrate and present a finer type
of music. With this idea in mind, a new club, consisting of about 20 members,
was formed. A club founded for good music and founded upon hard work.
Believe me, hard work it wasg especially for its director., Mrs. Wilson.
With the formation of this new club, a new and fitting name had to be
found. After much thought, quite a bit of discussion, and innumerable sug-
gestions, it was finally agreed that the name 'cliluterpean Societyv was both
fitting and proper. Why tl1at name? What does it mean? ln Greek Myth-
ology we learned that the "Goddess of Arts and Science" was named '4Muse."
The word music is derived from this Greek word muse. Euterpi was one of
the arts and sciences, specifically 'GCoddess of Songf, So much for the word
Euterpean, now let's turn to the dictionary and look up the word society.
"Society: a body of persons united for the promotion of some object.
Now that we know how Euterps got started and how it received its name,
let us take a look at some of their productions.
The premier performance was a musical reception held in the music
room before a select group of friends and relatives. It was indeed a very
swanky affair. All the decorations were in gold and white, the Society's
colors. The flowers were gold and white with a gold and white cake served
for refreshment. From this rather small but inspirational beginning we have
gone on to bigger and better things. With the aid of our leader, the inde-
fatigable Mrs. Wilson, we have presented "Mikado," HH. M. S. Pinaforef'
'Trial by Juryf' "Pirates of Penzancef' '4Princess Ida," "Colden Jubilee
Celebration" and most recently wllhe Womanless Wedding."
The Euterps also perform at every commencement exercise, at which
time we lose a certain percentage of our members. Older members go out
of school into their chosen field or profession never forgetting the memorable
days spent in the Euterps Society. New members come in to replace the old
as the Society progresses onward . . . onward to a world brought closer to
good music through the untiring efforts of our beloved director and the
cooperation of the Society members.

Today my mother told me to clean out the pockets of my red corduroy
'Tll send it to the cleaner's before school begins," she said, to the waiting
laundry man. '
Usually I find exciting things in my pockets-old letters, school passes,
a bunch of tired peanuts, and occasionally a forgotten handkerchief. But this
time I found two nickels and a movie ticket stub. I began to think, when did
I leave these? So I imagined what might have happened with them.
Of course, the ticket was to our nondescript place of entertainment
a atia in a sma town wa ca e t e ta ium. e two nic e s were
pl'l' ll y lldh4'Sd "Th kl
definitely the change. A double feature costs forty cents, most always. But
the ticket lady always gives dimes in change. I began to weave a dramatic
story behind the two nickels and the ticket stub.
Mary Lou was a senior in high school, Pleasant Dale High. She had a
quiet nature and even though she was a very pretty girl, she didn't go out
very much except with a crowd of girls who were her "gals" All of them had
running crushes on the new senior boy, or Mr. Anderson, their history teacher,
the same people on whom girls usually have crushes. fThis isn't a very
unusual story.j But Mary Lou was a little different from her friends. She
had absolutely, definitely, positively, surely fallen in love with the Greatest
Senior in P.D.I-I.S.! He was, namely, Gene Norman, who was deeply tanned
all year 'round and could dance, so Mary Lou had been told, like a dream.
Oh, how she longed for him to speak to her or nod to her. Either would have
made her slightly ecstatic in reels of unconfined joy. She could see herself
dancing with Gene Norman, laughing with him, talking with him.
In most stories, the heroine has her fling with the hero, so I cannot resist
letting Mary Lou have hers. Besides, the story would be Hat without it.
Well, Mary Lou got her chance. On Monday morning, Tony Eberhart
called Mary Lou as she was coming into school.
'cl want you to meet my friend," he said. At least, that's what she thought
he said, for there standing with one big paw reaching out to shake her hand
was none other than our friend, Gene Norman. It was as simple as that!
Later that morning, Mary I,ou's third class teacher sent her home on a
sick pass saying that the girl had looked Vacant and distant all through the
class and perhaps she was ill?
Needless to say, Mary Lou walked 011 clouds that whole wonderful day.
And when the telephone rang at five-thirty and Gene Norman's magnificent
voice came over the wire, Mary Lou nearly fainted from excitement and joy,
all those emotions that make a girl radiant. He asked her how she was and
did she get home all right fhow did he know I was sent home, M. L. thoughtj
and was it possible for her to go to the movies with him that coming Friday
Was it possible! I!
Why, it was not only possible but also probable, definite, absolutely
possible, definitely possible, etc., etc.
Make my voice sound casual, M. L. thought, trying desperately to regain
"I think I can make it,,' she answered. "I'll let you know tomorrow
morning first thing, 0.K.?"
Magnificent Gene answered, "Sure"
Then Mary Lou got rid of him quick before she could give away her
This was no date to turn down, so Friday night found Mary Lou walking
quietly beside Gene towards the "Stadium.,' Imagine a tall, well-built guy,
as handsome as they come, looking down at a small, sweet blonde girl and
there you have the picture. But now the story changes, for as they enter the
inner gates of the great theatre fit looked great to Ml.. thenj, Gene asked,
would you like some candy to which Mary Lou said yes. From there on the
evening is tiring, the movie boring for some reason that no one can explain.
Even though they seem to be a perfect couple who have enjoyed five days of
togetherness, suddenly they want no more of each other than just a friendly
acquaintance. Mary Lou longs for the "gals" and Gene longs for his gang
All that Mary Lou has as a memento of the evening is her ticket stub
and the two nickels that Gene gave her to choose whatever candy she pre-
ferred. Somehow, she didn't buy the candy.
Weeks later, she finds these mementos in a corner of her dresser drawer.
In youth, sadness is always short, for there are too many happy days for every
one, so shall we say that Mary Lou felt sad for only a minute or two, then
threw the ticket stub away and gave the two nickels to her younger sister who
wanted a comic book ....
This could have happened. I don't remember how they got in my pocket
but the more I think about it, the more I wish that the story could have a
