One day last week, I think it was November 20, 1964, I
reported to work at the "Times", iln New York, that is.l I do
that every day since I have become their star reporter, though
that is neither here nor there. When I arrived for work I had
a new "run" to cover so I started out. First stop was the local
police station. My! there had been a terrible murder during the
night. Glad it's no one I know. But who is the distinguished
looking gentlemen talking to the police chief? Why that's the
new and very popular 'private eye! We hear he's a whiz!! It's
Raymond Loyer, another J . Edgar Hoover. He tells me he'll
have a fine story for me if I want to go up to the police lab while
he has some clues examined. So here we go. As we step into
the elevator whom should we find but Teddy Riley. It's only two
floors up to the lab, so we don't have much time ,to talk to Ted.
He doesn't even have time to tell us how he happened to change
his ambition from 'truck driver' to 'elevator operator' A we
enter the lab, I'm reminded of the lab back at dear old T. S.
Everything is so familiar. It even seems like home seeing
Maynard!!! What am I saying??? Well, what do you know??
It is he. Obviously Maynard Logan never got away from his
Back to the office to get the murder story in. That is
barely completed when the boss calls me into his office. Although
society isn't my line, it seems there is to be a 'Cinderella girl'
wedding today on Long Island. So I hurry out. It seems New
York's multi-millionaire, Sir Patrick Judge Cdon't let the 'Sir'
fool you, he's the same one who graduated from Townsend in
19503 is being wed to his former secretary. I, for one can hardly
wait to see the lucky girl. Here's his home. Now, all I have to
do is get past the doorman and all the butlers and maids.
It was a struggle but I made it and it was worth the effort.
Oh, "Here Comes the Bride". My, she looks familiar. Where
have I seen that face before?? For goodness sake!! It's, yes, it
is, Irene Welch. I wonder how that happened. She's Mrs. Judge
On my new"'run" there is a modern high -school. Klt seems
from everything the students around the school tell me, that it's
a modern school except for three exceptions. They are, I'm told,
three old maid school teachers, who 'never have changed their
ways since, at least, the year 1955. My, my! I'm not quite sure
whether it is safe for me to stay around long, so maybe I'll make
agquick exit. Whoops, too late, or else just in time. I think I
just heard a minor explosion. Back into the building, up the
stairs, and, oh no, it couldn't be in here, this is just.an assembly
of the school. What's this?? the assembly is for "Teacher's
Day", maybe there is a human interest story here. It won't hurt
to step in and listen. The principal is presenting the teachers
and they are going to make short speeches. "First," hesays,
"we have our beloved Math teacher, Miss Ward, followed by our
Home Economics teacher, Miss Fey, and then our ancient history
teacher, Miss Horning." Have you guessed it?'Z You're right.
It is Hazel, Doris, and Catherine, but I'm sure!they're not the
three exceptions the students were telling me about.
Again, I go back to the office. And now I have an assign-
ment to cover a new Broadway show. It is an oddity because
the entire show is made up of only three people, and no one has
ever seen the faces of those three. They wear masks during all
their many acts. And what acts!! They do juggling, singing,
playing instruments fpiano and two guitarsjg they do whole
Shakespearean plays in pantomme, they wrestle fthough every-
one thought that went out with televisionj and they even get
around our national laws and conduct "give aways." They're
called the SLC's" Cpronounced "Slicks"J and brother! they really
are. What a show!! good for a matinee. But now that it's over
I think I'll go back stage and try to see these gentlemen. Here's
a dressing room with "S" on the door. I'll knock. Three beauti-
fully harmonizing voices answer "Come in." So in I go. Oh, no!!
What to my wondering eyes should appear but the SLC's without
their masks who are no other than: Simons, Joe of course: Lutes,
Wayne: and Carey. Which Carey? Frank of course. We re-
minisce a bit and I find out all the details of their once agvain
joining forces and combining talents. It seems Joe wasn't making
out so well on his ranch in Texas, Wayne had given up farming
shortly after graduation, and Frank, well, his story is too sad
and long to relate here.
A If I hurry, I can just make it ,back to the office to make my
deadline. Something seems to be holding up traffic, My good-
ness, what's that marching down Broadway,--a parade? I'll in-
quire of this lady here. Yes, she says, it's a parade. A parade
of iome Ohio farmer and his 15 children plus a cow. This I must
Calling one of the children aside I asked, what goes on?"
He replied, Dad lost an election bet."
"Oh, and what's your name?" I said.. "Wayne Lortcher, Jr."
was my answerq
That does it. Another day like this and I quit the news-
paper work. Things like this aren't even worth that big, bold
by-line that says-Carol Thayer.

Eighteen members started down in the little wooden school
house. Of these we have four who went all 12 years to Town-
send, Teddy Riley, Catherine Horning, Maynard Logan, and Hazel
Ward. Irene Welch also started down there but went to Elyria
for six months.
We were the first class of second graders to go to school in
the new part of the building. We appreciated this very much.
Going into the 3rd grade was a mixture of both sorrow and
joy for we missed Mrs. Ross but'we were advancing. We were
losing and gaining new members every year.
The last part of our 5th year several Hartland students went
to our school. What an increase! The 5th and 6th grades passed
by and soon we were in Jr. High before we knew it. Yes, half
way through school and we're still alive! Maybe we'll finish.
The seventh grade wasn't as easy as we had thought. What
a change! The same teacher wasn't with us all day. We moved
from one room to another. Oh! Boy! We graduate! We hope!
Under Mrs. Chandler as our home room advisor we were able to
havtia everything ready for graduation. We did it! We gradu-
Seventeen members started in 1946 as Freshman. Most of
our boys played basketball. Three members spoke in the Prince
of Peace Contest. We earned money by selling magazines.
To start our Sophomore year we lost the following membersg
Erica Smith, Pearl Knittle, Don Laux, and Norman Judge.
Our boys played basketball and Irene Welch was one of their
cheerleaders. Again three members spoke in the "Prince of
Peace" contest. Maynard placing 2nd.
Our Junior year was very successful. We lost two more
members, Velma Boss and Neva Houghtlen. Our boys played
basketball with the second high point man from our class, Pat
Judge. Nice work, Pat. '
Irene Welch, Maynard Logan, Wayne Lutes, and Catherine
Horning helped the Seniors give their play. Irene was a varsity
cheerleader. Two of our members spoke in the "Prince of Peace"
contest, with Maynard placing first. ' We gave the Seniors a Prom
at the Norwalk Country Club.
Finally we're Seniors. Our boys play basketball with Pat,
Judge as star player.
Frank Carey from Michigan joined our class. We gave the
Senior Class Play "Belevedere." Irene has had 3 years of cheer-
Three of our members spoke again in the "Prince of Peace"
contest. Maynard again won first place in the first contest. Since
we have some studeous people at Townsend, 'Carol Thayer will
iradcuate with us May 25th. Oh Happy Day! Thirteen members,

After looking over the situation around school we find that
besides having a few students with scholastic abilities there are
also some with other outstanding characteristics.
We find that as always Irene is still our most popular girl
with Pat Judge claiming the title among the boys.
Pat Judge also earned the honor of being the best athlete.
It has been found we have a girl with athletic ability named
-Gosh! It seems you even get in the news if you behave,
here we find that Catherine Horning has been named the most
bashful girl with Raymond Loyer being the shy boy.
It seems we also have at least two serious people in good old
Townsend. Guess who! I1'ene Welch and Maynard Logan.
It also seems you can be serious and have a sense of humor
too because again we find Irene Welch's name along with Pat
gThese two really get around, here they are again Pat Judge
and Irene Welch the neatest dressed boy and girl.
I presume that a few students have been observing more
than their text books, seeing that Carol Thayer was voted the
girl with the sweater girl look.
When jaws open and shut people are not always talking for
Gale Gosch and Hazel Ward go in for gumchewing.
I guess a good foundation goes with a good personality be-
cause it seems Hazel Ward and Cliff Herrington have the biggest
feet around here with Wayne Lortcher taking a second place for
From large to small we find Sylvia Heldt and Irene Welch
with the small feet. They say that good things come in small
packages but that's besides the pointy Tom Judge has small feet
If any of you girls are looking for a he-man just ask for
Cliff Herrington or Pat Judge they've'got what it takes.
Laugh and be happy with Irene Welch, Wayne Lutes, and
Joe Simons, who take honors as having the cutest laugh.
Who says post office is a thing of the past 'Z Carol Sommers
and Irene Welch have so graciously earned the. title of having
the most kissable lips and "Lookee here", Andy Matelski for the
A few people even work around here and we find that Carol
Thayer, Irene Welch and Maynard Logan are our most ambitious
Boys, you've been looking again and have voted Irene Welch
the girl with the best figure.
Silence is the word with Pat Judge and Lois Horning our
quietest personalities. A
Swing doesn't always refer to music, it's also used in relation
to the walk of Irene Welch and Audrey Martin. 4
Hide the food, here come the two Ward girls, Hazel and

This school year began with an enrollment of twenty in the
Fifth Grade and twenty one in the Sixth Grade. Before the end
of September we had welcomed to the Sixth Grade James Carey
from Michigan and Robert Zuk from Cleveland. In October, the
Fifth Grade lost Mary Ann Wray who moved to Grafton, and
added James Woods who came from Chicago. In December,
Sharon Stewart moved to Texas and Kenneth Gardiner went to
Elyria. Our enrollment now is forty-one. '
We enjoyed a Halloween party in our room with prizes for
costumes and pumpkin faces. Those in costume joined the
parade through the school building coming back for refreshments
of pop corn, potato chips, apples, cookies, and cider.
For Christmas our room was decorated with pine branches, a
fireplace and a creche. We enjoyed making evergreen wreaths
for the front doors of the school building.
On the last day before vacation we were invited to see a
puppet play in Mrs. Merrilees's room and a high scxhool class gave
"A Visit From St. Nicholas" as a choral reading. An exchange
of gifts, followed by carol singing and refreshments completed
our Christmas party.
Again this year we have borrowed books from the Norwalk
Library. Elections in each grade were held to choose, librarians.
Dale Ford, William Klein, Kenneth Gardiner and Norma Friend
have been kept busy because many books have been read. Young
America and Young America Readers are current event papers
that we like, too.
A list of things we have enjoyed and appreciated this year
would surely include the music classes with Mr. Nelson, the ed-
ucational films shown by Mr. Bell, the assembly programs spon-
soredby the Student Council, and the privilege of playing in the

In September the Third Grade opened school with an enroll-
ment of eleven but it was not long until Betty Zuk and Charles
Sanders joined our ranks and we have continued at thirteen thus
The Fourth Grade started with an enrollment of sixteen and
the number is still the same. However we very regretfully said
good-bye to James Hartley who departed for Akron early in the
year but Dorothy Zuk came to take his place.
In September we spent our time getting acquainted with each
other and also getting acquainted with the new work at hand.
In October we spent our spare moments planning for our
annual Halloween Party. On the day of the big event we joined
with the other masked fun-makers and paraded the school rooms.
With several mothers as judges we gave prizes to the best cos-
tumes and also a prize to the most originally decorated pumpkin
face. Refreshments of pop corn, potato chips, cookies, cider, and
candy were served.
In November our art work, coloring paper, and story telling
all centered around Thanksgiving Day. But no special program
was planned for that day.
In December all art work centered around Christmas. We
rearranged the story "The Kitten Who Wanted to be a Christmas
Present" into a Puppet play. We presented this play twice in our
own room. First time the Fourth Grade gave it for the pleasure
of the Fifth and Sixth Graders. Second time the Third Grade
played it for the First and Second Graders to enjoy. Afterwards
we enjoyed a Christmas treat of ice cream and cookies. Santa
Claus himself passing out red and green pop corn balls.
In January we reviewed all the work of the first semester in
preparation to entering the second semester.
February of course is Valentine month and our Valentine
Box was an extra large one made and furn-ished by Joyce Robin-
son. We all received a number of valentines which we will cher-
ish for years.
To stimulate interest in Spelling, we have had a seasonal
projeot. During September, October, and November we had a
large bare tree posted on our bulletin board. Every week when
We took our Final Test, those who received "A" had a leaf thumb-
tacked on the highest branch. "B's" next highest branch etc.
For Christmas we had green Christmas trees pasted in the win-
dows. Each "A" added a star. During January and February
we had a large skating rink. Each child had a skating boy.
Special places on the -skating rink meant "A". Other places
meant,"B" etc. During March, April, and May we used the kite
fiying project. Each child wants his kite to fly high.
During the year we have endeavored to learn one Bible verse
each week. We wrote a verse onthe board on Monday and left
it there all week. Usually by Thursday and Friday we could
repeat it from memory.

When the school bell rang at T. H. S. on Sept. 6, 1949, the
primary room was filled to a plentiful sufficiency of fifty-five.
Twenty three happy boy and girls proudly answered the roll as
full pledged second graders, while thirty two timid five and six
year olds anxiously awaited proceedings in this new adventure
of being first graders. After two weeks of learning rules and
getting acquainted with each other and the teacher, everyone
out of necessity learned the big lesson of cheerfully sharing
everything from penc.ils, crayons, and books to tables, chairs, and
lockers. This big happy family was divided as the second grade
with their new teacher, Mrs. Lee, departed for a newly created
classroom adjoining the gym.
In September the mothers were invited to spend an after-
noon in the classroom. It was from this gathering that plans for
the formation of a P. T. A. grew.
In December we presented a Christmas program for the P.
T. A. A capacity crowd turned out to see the new gym. Santa
made his appearance and everyone extended season's greetings.
The splendid cooperation of the parents, school board, jani-
tor, P. T. A., and the untiring eflorts of Mr. Burkle have.made
the school year of 1949-50 very pleasant for a group of small
With the opening of the 1949-1950 term the combined 1st
and 2nd enrollment was so large it was found necessary to divide
it into the first and second grades. So with 23 pupils the second
grade had anew and pleasant class room but with very little
By the Christmas season, the room was completed with new
seats, blackboards, fluorescent lights, and a work table. The
mothers were then invited to see the pupils in actual work ses-
sion as .carried on during the regular class routine. A short
Christmas program was presented and presents which the child-
ren had made were given to their mothers from the tree they
The Christmas seals given in their spelling helped to increase
their interest in the study.
A 100'k contribution was given to the Junior Red Cross.
Valentine's Day was observed by having a Valentine Box
and with Valentine plastic favors from the teacher. We wish to
express appreciation to the Board of Education for the equipment
they have provided for our work and to the parents for their
whole-hearted co-operation during the school year.
