Asleep or awake,the precious ones in the three and four year old Nursery are living dolls. We were easily convinced of this after our whispered interview during naptime with Mrs. Owen and Miss Giles the loving and understanding teach- ers in charge. Were we really ever small enough to fit on those tiny cots? The conversation of these little ones is always interesting,sometimes amazing, and often astounding: One little fellow happily greeted Mrs. Owen with: HHello, Honey Bunch.H Several little girls were sitting in a corner. When some boys walked up, they said: "Oh, go away: we're hens laying eggsln A small boy was walking along and found a stone. He remarked: HOh,look, here is a Rock of Ages. I'm strong like that.n And: HDon't kissln spank her, give her a Great activity goes on in our Nursery.

THE GOLDEN AGE OF LEARNING by Christine Morse, Peg Savage, James Wait The Kindergarten, fantasy-land of play and paints, was once again vis- ited by three members of our class. Our visit brought back memories of playing on swings, painting, and even climbing up a slide the wrong way. This year's Kindergarten of twenty- one children is now preparing a pro- gram for the Mothers' Club. In this program they will sing a song for each of the ten school months of the year. This class of artists has even painted special pictures to illus- trate those months. There are pump- kins for October, Santas for Decem- ber, and bunnies for Easter. About the hard-working side of Kindergarten: The children are get- ting a taste of what school life is like by learning the consonants and vowels. They already know their numbers. Numbers are put on hats and then the children paste the correct number of colored designs to correspond with the numbers on the hat. I'm sure everyone will agree that Kindergarten is truly the Golden Age of Learning. Congratulations to Mrs. Scallan and Miss Scallan for such wonderful teaching. WORK, WORK, WORK by Steve Arthur, Doree Citron, Melinda McMahan nHow I wish I had an easy life like the First Gradersl All they do is sleep,paint, and play? This is often on the lips of many Ninth Graders as they trudge through their exasper- ating day. As I walked away from my visit with Mrs. Swan and Mrs. Savage, I was astonished and happy that I was in the Ninth Grade. Did you know that in the First Grade they have to make up their work? What is the reason for all this hard work? The Carden method! Just recently Berkeley Hall began using this method. In learning spelling, the children do not memorize words, Continued... SECOND GRADE by David Drake, Agnes Montgomery, Julie Warner The Second Grade has been learning the Carden method this year. They learn to spell without having to study each word and pronounce words at first sight. Mrs. Iwert pronouncesp a word and the students repeat it, then they sound it out and spell it. Another way is by dictation. Mrs. Iwert reads a sentence and the stu- dents repeat it. Then they write the sentence word by word, syllable by syllable. When the election was held this year for Governor, the Second Grade also held an election, only it was for the President of their class. They had a voting stamp, booth, elec- tion box, and tallies. All class projects are done by the students themselves without the help of their teacher. A project they have been doing is on grain. There are headings on the wall such as wheat, oats, and corn. Under the heading they put different kinds of cereal box tops. Some of the ones they had were: Shredded Wheat was under wheat Alpha Bits and Quaker Oats were . under oatsg and Cornflakes and Trix were under corn. KINGS OF THE PRIMARY by Susan Attridge, Lyn Kendrick, and Nancy Kohler This year the Third Grade class has made great strides in achieve- ment under Mrs. Upton. The day be- gins,like other classes, with open- ing exercises consisting of the Flag Salute, a hymn, and the Daily Prayer. Every child in the room gets a chance to choose the hymn and lead the exercises. Their favorite subjects are French, art and Cbelieve it or notJ arithme- tic. The Third Grade is not techni- cally a Carden class but it does in- A clude some Carden activities. Their has been enhanced that they operate reading it its reading interest by the library themselves. A librarian is elected every three weeks to keep the books in order and check them out. Ccontinued next columnjf CANNOT COMPLAIN by Ken Crow, Carol Mau, Randy Rice It is typical for all children to complain about homework. Mrs. Hill, the Fourth Grade teacher, has con- quered this problem by graphically pointing out the ratio of homework to play at home. Among other things done are five reports during the year. The first four deal with the study of Califor- nia and the last with science.Along with the first four reports, the children are required to hand in a diorama of life during this period or a map. These reports are the basis for the assemblies they give. The year is made much more inter- esting when the Fourth Graders proudly display their hobbies.They include such skills as model build- ing, collections such as those of stamps and coins,and many others. Writing and English are practiced when papers on the pupils' vaca- tions are written. These along with the required pictures are given as a momento to the parents at the end of the year. In Mrs. Hill's opinion, this is the most creative class she has had. This is exemplified by the dioramas, maps, and scenes which are created by the pupils. GCONTINUED..Third Grade Monitors are chosen every week to take care of the room's scrapbook. To this, members of the class contri bute pictures and articles concern- ing their studies. The girls have organized a Brownie Troop and they have enjoyed making paper mache' puppets and putting on shows. This is the first troop since our own and they also plan to plant a tree. with all these privileges,though, their conduct is shown on a behav- ior music chart. Each pupil has his picture on a note on the chart and it moves forward or backward accord- ing to his conduct. The students carry on their class- room in a businesslike manner, and thanks to the excellent discipline of Mrs. Upton, they are well on their way to becoming nKings of the Campus.n guns-n NINTH GRADE BEHIND THE FIFTH GRADE? by Kim Austin, George Burnette, Ronald Krisel HMrs. O'Connor, will I be able to graduate to the Fifth Grade next year?H was the question asked after three members of the Ninth Grade visited the Fifth Grade and spoke to their teacher, Mrs. McGee. The reason for the question was a fifteen minute class of French taken by the Fifth Grade. The difficulty of it startled me. I saw words I had never laid eyes upon! The members of the class are par-f ticipating in an HArithmetic Race.n It consists of class work only.Every time a student hands in a perfect paper, he may color in a square after his name and put a gold star in the center if it was a test. United States History is another subject of interest. The class begins with Columbus and travels through history until they reach the present. They must also learn to spell and place on a map, all the states of the United States. Another chart upon the wall is a Book List. After a student reads a book on his own, a black star is placed after his name. When a student: has given an oral or written book report, he receives a red star. The most interesting chart is the one entitled HRecess Partners.H The purpose of this chart is to make new friends and see the good qualities in them. Each week a person has a new recess partner who plays with him for one week. Some other activities of the Fifth Grade are meetings with the Sixth Grade for singing on Fridays. Assem- blies have been given on Social Studies, Bird Pictures and Parts of Speech. WORKING IN A TREE HOUSE by Janalee Meyhaus, Don McCarty, Bonnie Nance In the Sixth Grade many interest- ing and unusual things happen. With Mrs. Henry these thirty-one enjoy living in a Htree housen where they not only see the sycamores sprout in the spring and many different kinds of birds, but have fun re- trieving a paper or two that Hacci- dentally flew out the window.n Each year they elect two boys for the daily job of raising and lower- ing the flag. Bruce Larson and Jon Thomas were chosen this year. For this they receive a letter of appreciation at Graduation. Sixth Grade pupils find new exper- iences and new problems: Dancing lessons are given by Mrs. Baker in preparation for the Sixth Grade In- vitational. Next in importance are country reports. They have the privilege of attending a few Junior High assemblies, the Thanksgiving Service, and they celebrate their last Play Day. Here each learns to multiply and divide decimals and fractions.This is seldom accomplished without an occasional noon spent in the room. A sneak preview of history from the first real civilization down to modern times is given. A new world, the world of French, under Mr. Dishian's guidance is entered. In art, under Mrs. Richards, the Sixth Grade makes world globes, masks, and clay figures. In science, under Mr. Richards, they study natural science. In music, helped by Mrs. Purtle, they learn to sing in harmony. Mrs. Jeffries teaches the girls the hula and the boys a stick dance. What a wonderful grade this is! CONTINUED..First Grade they learn rules of spelling, of each vowel, and what each says. This makes the children sound out words. There are no pictures in the Carden book. This helps each pupil to form his own picture in his mind. The students also have a science of animals. They draw pictures of cows in the air or fish in the meadow for the purpose of distinguishing the habits of animals and on what they feed. Once every two weeks, as a reward for corrected workbooks, some students have the privilege of an art period. An occasional party is even allowed. -R 'FH , If f faint! ,U ', ""', I Il .Tail , XA 7' 1, TU' Y .4 gfg? 1 A 'kr , f' ,f A f ' ,ffwf f " ' fffff' ff fb-4' slffhfff 4' mf' f at A SCHOOL is A PLACE TO IZEARN THE SEVENTH GRADE GARDEN by Perry Valentine by Ce-PY11 Citron A school is a place to learn.

The method used is that of questions and answers after the reading of power and rate builders. The reader then corrects his work and puts his grade in his record book. There are also listening skills, in which the teacher reads an article to the class. Then the class answers questions about the article. There are only six listen- ing skills, but they are very interesting. In a recent discussion, not only did the class agree that the articles were interesting, but almost everybody has improved his reading in one way or another. We hope that the future Seventh Grade will enjoy it as much as we have. -573 A7 Wfxffl I if three years ago had a record auction, they spent some of the money they obtained on improving their garden. Now, the present Seventh Grade is doing their best to keep the garden up. They cared for the tree that had been injured last summer. It has responded fully to the care, and we have thoroughly enjoyed the garden. We hope the future Seventh Grade will appreciate it as much. OUR FAVORITE ASSEMBLY by Christine Carlson We have had a number of assemblies. Among these were our assembly on astronauts, our ballad assembly, and a few others. Our very favorite one was our Lincoln and Washington Debate. This assembly, under the direction of Mrs. Dlouhy, was in the nature of a debate on Lincoln and Washington. Half the class was ar- guing for Lincoln and the other half for Washington. It took much preparation to get the facts used. When the debate was over, we asked Mr. Nelson to decide which man was the greater. We thought that we would fool him, but he fooled us and made a decision. His decision confirmed that of the class: both men were the greatest of their time. SCIENCE by Van Van Tress and Don Vogel The boys go to science every Monday Wednesday, and Friday. We read a paragraph and then discuss it. Light is one of the subjects we have stud- ied. We have learned about how the light rays can be bent so that all the colors of the spectrum can be seen. Occasionally we see a movie illustrating the unit we are study- ing. After we finish each unit, we report on it. DANCING by Cindy McMahan The Seventh Grade has been taking dancing lessons since January of the Sixth Grade. with the help of Mrs. Baker, we put on a dancing program for the Mothers' Club several months ago. Mrs. Baker is a wonderful teacher, and she has helped us learn a great variety of dances, with many perfect ed steps. But most of all, she has built up our willingness to dance many steps, so that everyone enjoys dancing. OUR COLLAGES by Charlotte Ferrini Under the supervision of MTS. Richards, the 'Royal Seventh Grade Girlsu made collages. They were put on display in the Berkeley Hall cafeteria for the Ninth Grade Fashion Show and remained there through the Parents' Invitational Fortnightly. A collage is a tissue paper de- sign that one can make by gluing colored tissue paper onto a card- board. The effects are wonderful! One has a limitless amount of color schemes with Mrs. Richards around to buy the colored tissue paper. Mrs. Richards will probably pass this honor on to next year's Seventh Grade. ART '63 by Stephanie Archer During the past school year, Mrs. Richards assisted the Seventh Grade girls on many art projects. Some of the main ones were collages, monogramsg initials and designs of the initials of our names, and in our eyes the most important of all, the decorations for the Sixth Grade Invitational. Our theme for this year was cartoons of funny parents and sarcastic children. We all hope that the following Seventh Grade classes will enjoy Mrs. Richards and her classes as much as we did! ....i1.i...-. OUR FIRST JUNIOR HIGH ASSEMBLY by Joyce Herman Our first assembly was about Hastronauts.H The participants were Christine Carlson, Caryn Citron, Todd Culbertson, Greg Tryon, and Perry Valentine. We had been studying the poem, 'bolumbusnby Joaquin Miller. Then we looked through the book on given to the Seventh Grade astronauts by Alan B. Shepard. We were each assigned an astronaut to write a report on. We found that just as Columbus paved the way to the New World, the astro- nauts are paving the way to the other planets. In the assembly, Perry Valentine led the hymn. Todd and Greg recited the poem, HColumbus'. Christine, Caryn, and Greg told about Alan Shepard, John Glenn, Scott Carpenter, and Walter Schirra, who had just returned from making six orbits of the earth, making history by landing right on target. PICKY PICNICKERS by Martha Sage On May 22 the Seventh Grade was very picky about where we had our picnic. Where was a better spot than the McMahansW The Seventh Grade was delighted with the luscious food that filled our appetites. After playing tennis and paddle tennis, we lived up to our uups and downsn on the trampoline. No picnic day could be complete at the McMahans'without a cool, refreshing swim in the pool. After having fun with dogs, cats, bikes, records, and one swing hang- ing from an old oak tree, we retired from an unforgettable picnic day. MUSIC by Joyce Herman This year in music the Seventh Grade has been studying all the instruments of the orchestra. The whole class has enjoyed singing and practicing for the Christmas and Graduation Programs. -----.--vi- ffm CLASS MOTTO mgfOrder is Heaven's First Lawn by Dorothy Roelse Our class motto was beautifully lettered by Deborah Bough,Mary Ann Baker, and Linda Vogel. This verse from Science 8 Health by Mary Baker Eddy was introduced by Jon Drake. Every day this verse is used in the Eighth Grade room. We have had six elections. Our presidents have been: John Steele- smith, Jon Drake, Deborah Boughn David Greenwalt, Richard Larson,and Kent Bilsborrow. we have thirteen students with all blue cards. They are: Deborah Boughm Kirk Honeycutt, Jon Drake, Diana Vogel, Mary Ann Baken Dale Crow, Kent Susan Dewindt, Laurie Thomas, Daniels, Linda Julie Stevens, Bilsborrow, Richard Larson, and Christine Sansone. There were twenty- in two grading the year. six blue cards periods during -.-.-......1.... REAQHING GOALS IN c1T1zENsHiP by Diana Daniels Early this year we enjoyed a talk given by Miss Kathleen O'Conner, a former citizen of England, on how she became a citizen of the United States. The gratitude and love she expressed for our Constitution, made us eager to learn about it. Our second semester started with the Constitution. Under Mrs. Hall's expert guidance, we learned how the Constitution was formed, how the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Departments work, how a bill becomes a law, how a foreigner is natural- ized, and how to use and display the flag. Near the end of the year, we put our findings into a beautifully decorated notebook along with all the pictures we could find of federal officials. Our Constitution study has pre- pared us for becoming good citizens. CHRISTMAS CHEER AT HOME Q ABROAD by Richard Larson TWO Eighth Grade customs were once again carried out by the pres- ent Eighth Grade. The sharing of . Mrs. Eddy's Writings on Christmas was carried out with a great deal of reverence. It was shared at both an assembly and the Christmas Formal The Eighth Grade once again helped the world's many needy through CARE. A total of S35 was collected and given to many countries. We received letters of thanks from Mexico, Hong Kong, Korea, India, and others. Once again it was a very busy Christmas for the Eighth Grade. BRUSHING UP ON ART by Deborah Boughn We artists of the Eighth Grade Class of 1963 have been working diligently to perfect our perspective of art. We have received wonderful advice and guidance from Mrs. Richards, our art teacher. I For each Fortnightly, the Eighth Grade girls picked a subject o work on. For the Parent's Fortnigh ly we chose Hawaiian scenes because the Ninth Grade had perfected a few Hawaiian dances for the Fashion Show. The Eighth Grade has many excel- lent artists. Don't you agree? FUN AT THE PARK by Mary Ann Baker Our Eighth Grade went on their annual picnic to Roxbury Park on May 16. Here the class played base- ball, tennis, and other exciting games. Some of the mothers and fathers helped to prepare hamburgers and other delicious foods for the day. The class returned to school and went swimming from 2:30 to 3:30. The class enjoyed their day and thanked Mrs. Hall and the parents for helping. EIGHTH WORKS FOR PASSPORTS by Lindsey Nicholl This year, because of an abundance of Hblue cardsu the Eighth Grade Class went on a field trip. It led us to the Chevrolet Plant in Van Nuys. There we saw the process a car goes through as it is being made. We learned many interesting things. We saw the assembly line, its workers, and how each person performed his own individual job. After our tour, we had lunch in the executive's dining room at the plant. HARMONY IN MUSIC by Charlotte Pahlavi The year l963 has brought harmony to the hearts and voices of the present Eighth Grade. Our singing career all started with our Christmas Assembly when we sang carols. We brought joy to many when we shared our Christmas caroling on Saturday evening. Throughout the year the Eighth Grade has been kept busy with skill- ful four part harmony songs and with our Eighth Grade Talent Show and Junior High Music Assembly. FUTURE EINSTEINS by Paul Appleby In the science class, future Einsteins were able to conduct an excellent assembly demonstrating air pressure, inertia, the pull of gravity, and centrifugal force by using simple experiments which were all successful. Last fall, Mr. Richards treated the whole class with a tour of the Griffith Park Observatory. WINNING A WAR WITH SONGS by Linda Vogel At the beginning of the school year, the Eighth Grade Class stud- ied about the Civil War. In our enthusiasm, we gave an assembly on the War. We sang songs that the Northern and Southern soldiers had sung during the weary or happy days to keep up their morale. Several members of the class gave reports on the war and its certain events. -..i.......l GOURMETS OF LITERATURE by Bradley Scott There is no doubt that the most achievements in literature have been accomplished by the Eighth Grade Class of this year. From Sep- tember of 1962 our twenty-eight literary students have handed in four literature notebooks each, gleaned the acquaintance of almost one hundred books through oral re- ports, provided a well received lecture on books by Mrs. Campbell, and at the same time, presented in assembly, three of our best oral reports. Mrs. Dlouhy will testify to the quality of our compositions, poetic minds, and our admiration for good literature. Literature is the luminary essence of beauty. Coriginall TA LEN TED TEENS by Christine Sansone On May 13 the Eighth Grade gave a talent show for assembly. Debbie Boughn, Charlotte Pahlavi,and Christine Sansone danced the Baccon- ale from Sampson and Delilah direct- ed by Miss Doris Niles. Kent Bils- borrow played a popular piano solo. Paul Purtle and Mr. Carlson, his drum teacher, played a difficult drum duet. Tb close the program, David and Jon Drake played two numbers on drum and piano. SPECIFICS ON THE PACIFIC by Susie DeWindt World War II was brought into sharp focus by Mr. DeWindt who out- lined the War in the Pacific and illustrated it with personal experi- ences. He showed that the War in the Pacific was unique and unprece- dented because of the widespread island battlegrounds, the tremendous expanses of sea, and the continuous necessity to land troops on islands in amphibious warfare. He traced the Pacific War from Pearl Harbor to its farthest Japanese advance followed by the American buildup and the counter-attack which terminated at Hiroshima. Mr. DeWindt told of his work as an amphibious scout in the Naval Intelligence and the many occasions where he used Christian Science. nl! 1 1 , 111 lull' ll lu 1 .,., NINTH GPAIE SONGS by Kim Austin, Ronald Krisel, Nancy Kohler Carol Mau, Bonnie Nance, Peg Savage CLASS SONG TUNE: The Magnificent Seven Twenty-four is our number, Sixty-three is the year.

It goes be- yond the mere academic education and educates the entire man spirit- ually, academically, and socially. We, at Berkeley Hall, are educated in these things with love, helpful- ness, and understanding. Mrs. Eddy tells us: HIt is not so much aca- demic education as a moral and spiritual culture which lifts one higher.H This entire education of youth is important to the whole world and is the subject of many discussions. Mrs. Eddy says that HThe entire education of children should be such as to form habits of obedience to the moral and spiritual law.H One's education is the basis of his life, his religion, and his succesg without it his life is barren. The full education that Berkeley Hall gives enriches one's life and establishes the basis of the req- uisites for future life. Each stu- dent receives a strong academic foundation and the wide variety of subjects enhances his knowledge. Our skills are developed and weaknesses are erased by these sub- jects. They develop an interest for other people, countries, and ways of life. The contrasts of right and wrong are pointed out while our rights are taught. To administer this education teachers and facilities are needed. Berkeley Hall has met the need with some of the best teachers and facilities available. Besides being such wonderful teachers, they are helpful, understanding, and loving. They help us all through the day by giving us advice, explaining the many problems we don't understand, and answering questions we present. Berkeley Hall, unlike the Spartan Camp, takes pride in educating the individual. Our beautiful campus sets the pattern of beauty, peacefulness,and serenity which helps to make our background. The second thing needed in the education of the entire man is the social development. Berkeley Hall has done many things to aid in our social development. The dances once a month have taught us how to behave correct- ly, how to dance, and how to converse interestingly. We have learned to appreciate many of the finer things of life such as books, music, and art. We have learned to have fun in a dignified manner so that everyone will benefit. The daily athletic period has taught us good sportsman- ship as well as athletic achievement. Berkeley Hall has helped create a highly refined, good-natured person. The third factor in the education of the entire man is his spiritual growth. This is the most important part of the education of the entire man since this is the basis for Life, Truth, and Love. A knowledge of this great Principle is needed to reach perfection. During our Berkeley Hall experience we grow spiritually and gain a greater know- ledge of this great Principle each day. In the morning we start the day with a spiritual article read by one of our classmates. After we ponder the article we have a few moments of silent prayer, followed by the Daily Prayer from the Manual of The Mother Church by Mary B. Eddy. One of the most important aspects is the harmony between the pupils and the teachers. The love and kindness inspire good thoughts and asia result we take a step forward in becoming the perfect man.Another aspect is the loving guidance of Mr. Nelson. Through firm and help- ful guidance we are led a step further in the spiritual development of the perfect man. Berkeley Hall has deep meaning for every one who has attended. Much has been given. The standard has been set. Now it is for each to go on and develop himself into the entire man. In short, Berkeley Hall is a rich and rewarding experience that will never be forgotten. Its main objec- tive is the education of the whole man spiritually, socially, and academically with love and under- standing. PHL-----1.-.... . ..,::f.,..

My dedication would be to all my teachers and my copyright would be the first year I entered Berkeley Hall. My first chapter would bring us to the Three Year Old Nursery. The characters are Shari Bleichman, Beth Hill, Carol Mau, Agnes Montgomery, Peg Savage, Julie Warner, Steve Arthur, and Kim Austin. Here Mrs. Owen and Miss Giles helped us forget the misery of yesterday's smeared finger- painting and encouraged us on to building higher buildings with our blocks. In our second chapter we were greeted by Mrs. Winkler. Our new adventurer was Lyn Kendrick and our new adventures included sing- ing, listening to stories, and even riding tricycles. All too soon we became restless and sought new adventures. Our seeking brought us to the third chapter and our first offi- cial title. Here we were called Kindergarteners, a title which I am sure has not quite worn off. New adventurers given to our band of terrorizers included Christine Morse, Bonnie Nance, and Jan Meyhaus. On this adventure Miss Horner and Mrs. Scallan introduced us to bigger blocks, a small swimming pool, portrait painting, a new set of swings, and bars on which to make our teachers hysteri cal. Again we found a lack of excitement and were on our way to bigger and better places. We know that that was our first mistake for it led us out of our mischievous ways and into the fourth chapter and new environment. They called it work and made it a permanent traveling companion. Other companions included Susan Attridge, Melissa Bosler, and Melinda McMahan. Here in the First Grade we discovered reading and counting gracefully taught by Mrs. Swanson. These were the two discoveries which led us to the fifth chapter entitled Second Grade. Mrs. Iwert wasthere to greet us and lead us into the mysterious depths of writing, more advanced arithmetic, and further reading. We found no new companions seeking adventure, but were kept company by our new found studies and those ever popu- lar naps. We now approached the sixth chapter or Third Grade. There were new experiences to be gained here, all offered by the enlightening Mrs. Davis. All of us delightful little darlings along with George Burnette were introduced to the grown-up idea of choosing our own lunches. In this chapter we noted the Joyful disappearance of naps. We also discovered long division over which many of us have spent long tiring hours. The three chapters seemed immense to us but now we looked onward over the many pages to the seventh chapter en- titled Fourth Grade. . On the first pages of this chap- ter we were met by Mrs. Hill. Our new fellow adventurers were Don McCarty and Doree Citron. This Jump was the largest we'd taken yet and here we were introduced to penmanship, to singing with the Sixth Grade, and to art,joyfully taught by Mrs. Richards. Here we were also introduced to those fun but all too short Play Days and Halloween parties. For the parents it was obvious that these were favorite events of the year. It wa especially obvious when we told t them we needed a costume and the Halloween party was the next day. The seventh chapter ended all to quickly for we were now in the Fifth Grade enjoying English, more homework, and more Halloween ' parties. We also enjoyed the compa ny of two teachers, Miss Mallon and Mrs. Eardley. Randy Rice and Ronald Krisel joined us here. In the ninth chapter we became S O History...Continued kings of the Intermediate Depart- ment and found new interests such as dancing, learning the simple rules of decimals, and being in- vited to the Sixth Grade Invita- tional Dance. The author of our adventures here was Mrs. Henry and the new adventurer was Jim Wait. All were nervous about the large jump between departments,but every- thing seemed to go smoothly. In our new chapter, grade, and department we were met by Mrs. Warne and Ken Crow. We were also met by the fortnightlies, picnic days, and our Fourth Grade friend, penmanship. Mrs. Dlouhy joined us for three years to lead us through Shakespeare, Hawthorne, and Longfellow. We also had the privi- lege of singing our own song on graduation day directed by Mrs. Purtle. Our eleventh chapter began a year of hard work introduced in the form of square roots and Constitution notebooks. The author was Mrs. Hall and the new adventurer was Nancy Kohler. We found it hard to work for our studies were interrupted by a day at the Disney Studios, another at the Huntington Library, and still another at the McMahans'. After a wonderful year we leave to begin our final year, the Ninth Gfadex Here eagerly awaiting us was Mrs. O'Connor with algebra book, gold pencil, and a slip of paper in hand. David Drake joined us in our final chapter and found himself along with the rest of us involved in algebra and French tests. We found ourselves making a shield, being hosts and hostesses at the Shield Dance, and writing articles for the annual. The girls attended a formal Tea given by the Past Officers of the Mothers' Club. Of all the books some of us have as yet to write, I do not think any will be remembered like the experi- ences we have had at Berkeley Hall. O Golden Morn by Beth Hill O Golden Morn, Lends spice to Birds soar and Enlivened with thy fresh and sweet perfume flowers now blooming everywhere, sweep the sky of winter's gloom, the heady springtime air. Your vibrant breeze betokens earth's awakening, As tiny seeds and tender shoots push through The warm brown crust where you were want to cling. Inspired, you paint our land with every hue. And man, now seeing, hearing earth's new rhythm Shakes off the shackles of a hate-torn world, Declares for peace, for harmony sans schism. Startles the sleepers with pure plans unfurled. What spark of truth has kindled this fresh scope? 'Tis the eternal spring! Our Maker gave us hope. Xiff N ZZ' 5' '---- 1 "' ' Y :af gf 1-:ir -ar --AA ff ' :anna 5-Ag , UGH! by Ken Crow R Bonnie Nance Quick! Stop everything! Close the business meeting, whatever it is can wait. You wouldn't want to be a second late for algebra, would you? The class opens with Mrs. O'Connor's cheery theme song, HGet Out a Little Sheet of Paper, We're Going to Have a Test,H sung beautifully to the tune of HI Hope You Studied Your Rules Last Night, Coz if You Didn't, Your Grade will be A-Fright..cha-cha- cha.U Then, homework papers are exchanged. Answers are read. They may not be the answers to our assignment, but at least they are answers. Finally the correct answers are given, grades are tallied, groans and sighs are heard. The next traditional tune on our Algebra Hit Parade is HYour Grades are Bad, You're Feelin' Sad, so I'll do any Problems You Want on the Board.lH Cwaltz timej. While this is being warbled off by our teacher, as she solves numerous problems, small conversations are carried on, places are lost, and teeny little cat naps are taken. As a reward for this disastrous deed, he must don that famous passionate purple nThinkH hat from Disneyland. V . 1 But, what is this? It's 9:M5,and soon we wish we had not taken such a negative attitude toward algebra.

Well, the Ninth Grade girls have a Hstitching hourn from lO:3O to ll:3O daily. It consists of gossip,basting, pressing, looking for someone else's lost pattern, scissors, or thread, ripping, more gossip, and occasion- ally a little bit of sewing. Before Christmas each girl made her father a shirt and her mother an apron. Learning to sew on those machines leach one having prehistor- ic scribblings on the bottom? was an experience. After the vacation our sewing room became a whirlwind of patterns, pins, zippers, rippers, material, and occasionally a few history books needed to study for a history test the following period. But all history books were promptly thrown down the stairs. ' Three beautiful sewing machines were given to us by the McMahans, which increased out initiative to sew. After many looong lectures, sever- al weeks of hard work and Mrs. Richard's patient help, we got through a successful Fashion Show. Now some of the girls are making graduation dresses. Thanks to Mrs. Richards, we had a delightful year. ....4.....-...--. NEW LOOK ON OBJECTS You never really appreciate an object until you have learned some- thing about the art of drafting. A whole new world opens for you. The drafting class taught by Mr. Richards is an experience which you may never forget. You learn the art of drafting and that a line is not just a line, it is precisely drawn, not too thin, not too wide, and not dark, yet not light. The drafting course includes architec- tural drawing and the perspective look. To some this might seem a lot of work but our teacher teaches us expertly. SHEIK SHAKESPEAREANS by Kim Austin This year, with the help of Mrs. Dlouhy, the Ninth Grade has studied many interesting and renowned au- thors. We began our studies with Edgar Allan Poe's HTelltale Heart,H HThe Raven,H and HAnnabel Lee.H We found that Poe, besides being a poet and writer, was a critic. We produced the nMikado,H a famous comedy by Gilbert and Sullivan. We, then, came to Shakespeare. We studied HAS You Like Itu and acted out par- ticular parts of the play. Here we discovered our romantic actors. Next we studied Shakespeare's HA Midsummer Night's Dream.n This was a poetic comedy having much to do with fairies and explained many beliefs of past centuries. Homer's Odyssey finished our course. We followed the adventures of Odysseus and learned much of the Greek traditions, ways of life, and beliefs of the gods. This story proved to be exciting as Odysseus met monsters, ghosts of the dead, and traitors to his country. I'm sure it has been an interest- ing year for all of us and one we will never forget. The year has greatly enlarged our sense of litera- ture by taking us from the Greek writer Homer to the modern day Gilbert and Sullivan. PROGRESS OR BEAUTY? by Carol Mau Many years ago, Berkeley Hall's campus looked like a beautiful little English village. There were quaint Shakespearian buildings surrounding a lovely acre of verdant grass. On this oval of green, were only two objects. One was a magnificent fifty year old monkey tree. Nearby a darling birdhouse was filled with fowls of every kind and color. A flock of ducks roamed freely about the oval, admired and petted by all. At different times there were rabbits with pink eyes and ears, and chickens who, to the great delight of Memphis, occasionally laid an egg. On warm days, many French classes were held on this green carpet under the shady tree. These grounds were perfect for the English style of the buildings, and both the buildings and campus complimented each other. Strangers to Berkeley Hall would visit the School and leave, much impressed by the beauty and serenity of the campus. f Now, when one looks at the campus of Berkeley Hall, they see some grass, a wall of chicken wire and a parking lot, full of cars. People remark: HThe twentieth century is here. Everything and everyone must modern- ize and catch up with this progress.H Can't we progress and not lose our 9 beauty. HOW DO I LOVE MY FATHER? I 'How do I love my father? Enumerate the ways: I love him for his stature, strength, and smile, I feel his presence when he is away, I love him for his very words the while He seems provoked at my clumsy manner, For I know that his tenderness is there, To me an ever faithful, shining banner, Proclaiming love that is so staunch and fair. I love him for his firm and guiding hand That guides against the world's material wrong. I love him for a home more sweet than grand, Where life for me is one long tender song. I'll love him through eternity, for his spirit's grace, Locked in my heart and framed,-my father's face. Janalee Meyhaus, Ninth Grade y in HTHANK YOUH Among the various jobs that are done on the campus is the upkeep of the school grounds. The beauti- ful trees and flowers which flour- ish among the buildings are always well kept and clipped. Stop and think how Berkeley Hall would look if it had not the expressions of Mother Nature. Many schools are not so fortunate as to have the grass which we enjoy. The trees, grass, flowers, and shrubbery are evidence of all the love ex- pressed at Berkeley Hall. The gratitude for the effort of making the food often slips the minds of many. Though we may not be aware of the superb excellence of the food, we show our apprecia- tion by the servings we take. This article is only a small note of our appreciation to Memphis, Mrs. Thomas, and all who are in- volved with making Berkeley Hall as grand as it is. THE MUSICAL SUPERWOMAN! by Steve Arthur Many programs are given at Berkeley Hall during the year.Every grade enjoys giving a Christmas program. All students above the Fourth Grade take part in Commence- ment Day. And, of course, there are always the Intermediate and Junior High assemblies taking place during the course of the year. Without the music, none of these would express the beauty, care, and love sowed into them. Who,many ask, is the master-mind, the incredible superhuman, the brain who guides this complex labyrinth, delicate, always off-key operation? Why, Mrs. Purtle, of course. Who else can make the worst, most unbearable choir in the world sing on key? Why,Mrs. Purtle, Silly. Yes, Mrs. Purtle, many are those who understand that without you the beautiful tree of Berkeley Hall would be missing many of its leaves. STARDOM AT THE NINTH GRADE TEA by Christine Morse The doorbell rings! Suddenly silence reigns. Fifteen eager heads turn toward the hall leading to the front door of Mrs. Lewis's lovely home. The door opens..the room is filled with suspense..Then a little head peeps around the corner. Ohl It's a Seventh Grader and her mother Whewl we can relax. Now all we have to remember is to..ah..uh..oh! gosh! what are we supposed to say?-- Oh, yes, HHow do you do, Mrs. ---- . May I present ---- .H Here they come down the line now, help! ---- Well, that wasn't too bad, in fact, it was kind of fun. 1 Can't you remember that first invitation received from the Past Officers of the Berkeley Hall Mothers' Club? It was in Seventh Grade, and I know exactly how it is. You are excited and a little nervous about it for a whole week. Then the day comes and you dress in your very best. When you arrive you're filled with at the home, anticipation and try to remember your manners. Things rush through you ring the doorbell! your mind as Then the door seems as if you step into a magic land. All around there seems to be a blur of dazzling colors. Then you see a line of girls. Oh! those must be the ..Whatl They couldn't be the same girls we play baseball with?! But they are! They look like goddesses in their pastel formals and their faces are radiant with Joy. Then you walk on down the line and shake them. Oh! What hands with each of fun it is, and you are already next year, and looking forward to then the next when you will be in the Ninth Grade and it's your stage, and you are the star. Well, now that you've made it, how does it feel to be a star? This year our thanks go to Mrs. Lewis for her lovely home and to the Past Officers for the wonderful goodies and tea, and careful plan- ning which made May ll, 1963, a perfect day! .-..........1.....1 'pl-.U,.gy CO1V1PETI'1'I'y,7E 5 .2 :'1:.vnx1is.N Jouxfuray by Ron Krisel The boys of the Berkeley Hall Junior High have never had a better or more competitive game's period. This year's seasons of football, basketball, soccer, and baseball have been the fastest moving and most exciting. Football brought fancier plays because of the more intricate plans behind them. The straight Hswift as lightn runners weren't used as much as the pass,and the tricky, winding,dizzying runners. Basketball was ruled by the tally but great speed, dribbling, and shooting ability enabled many short- er boys to become stars. Soccer was a fast,Hrough and tum- ble' sport. The ball was kicked, kneed, and head bounced in an attempt to make a goal. This was rarely attained. Baseball was the greatest. The pitchers were the best to ever pitch underhand fastballs, high over-the- backstop-flying balls, and wobbly curves. The fielding contained the best error-makers, fly droppers, and talk-with-the irl fielders . 8 ever assembled. The hitting made brand new softballs look like old balls of yani,A record number of hits were placed over the right field fence. The biggest lift was coach, Nick Veloz, who called balls, strikes, but helped captains in ing them place players given by the not only and outs, need by help- in their proper places. The usual rhubarbs were greatly reduced by the effec- tive coach. A most welcome change was Nick's no-callisthenics policy. This year's games period was the most enjoyable period. From football to baseball, all was in the spirit -of Berkeley Hall. g The Blues won in Basketball and the Whites won Volleyball and Speed- hall. At this time the Whites are seen leading in Baseball. Let's all watch and see which team will have its name on the pennant this year. Good luck to both! On April 25,the Mothers' Club of Berkeley Hall School took an imag- inary trip to Hawaii. Upon entering the school auditorium the guests were confronted with scenic pictures of the islands. The stage was deco- rated with palm trees, and lovely Hawaiian music filled the air. The Ninth Grade mothers were quick ly ushered to the front row, as the trip was about to begin. The cur- tains opened and there appeared crowds of American tourists with cameras. It was as if one had just stepped off a jet in Honolulu. A handsome guide was waiting there to introduce the hula dancers, who set the mood of the trip with graceful steps. Then the real show began--what glamour! what beauty! Out came the Ninth Grade girls modeling the attractive clothes they had made in sewing. These ranged from school dresses and beach wear to formals and party dresses. Each and everyl one was a marvel. Mrs. Dlouhy added to the mood by creating a Hawaiian setting for each of the Ninth Grade girls as they modeled. Mrs. Montgomery also beautifully described the outfits as they were presented. As the journey came to an end, each girl presented a lei of orchids to her mother, in the true Hawaiian fashion! RACE FOR TH PENNANT by Nancy Kohler This year the Blues and Whites are excitedly racing for the pennant Lyn Kendrick is leading the Blues and Melissa Bosler heads the Whites. Each day at 2:31 the girls sail out to games, all ready to play their hardest. Whack! A ball just whizzed out to the boys' field. That's just a Honce-in-a-whilen excuse for any girl to talk to nthat certain boy.H After every game each girl roots for the opposite team, showing good sportsmanship and team spirit. 11 i . iv a?"'1Li'f .av Tp 'fi' : ag J-rf" fr 1 R, ya. fl g if L cf 'TT 4 1 Y r Sf f , v ,sm 1 . , - R Q, 2-'if we 1 :Qu kr' hi f-'X xu, ..

M lt THE CLASS PHOPHECY by Kim Austin, Doree Citron, Ken Crow, Lyn Kendrick, Carol Mau, Don McCarty We enter now upon the monthly sewing circle for parents of graduates from Berkeley Hall in the old folk's home Upon entering we find Mrs Cro . . w mother of Ken Crow, saying, uSay, Mr. Citron, guess who I met while shopping for my new bikini on the Riviera. That schoolgirl who graduated with your Doree. She was a famous hairdresser called Lady Christine Clairol, and doing very well.H MR.

CITRON: HOh, I think you'd look pretty good in it. It's called THE FLOP.n MR. KENDRICK2 uSay, do you remember Carol ever talking about Don or George?H MR. MAU2 HDo I remember! Yes, of course.H MR. KENDRICK: Hwell, I heard that Don has joined the Silent Service and he's doing very well. He recently discovered that George was bribing people for votes for the presidency of l98M.H MR. MAU: HI guess Mrs. Dlouhy was right after all. She always said George would be successful in politics one way or another.n MRS. MCCARTY: nBy the way, Mrs. Crow, didn't you say that Ken was working on the IBM machines at UCLA, guaranteed to flunk students?U MRS. CROW: Hwhy, yes!H MRS. McCARTY: nAnd a few months ago he discovered that one of the machines was not functioning properly. After taking it apart and then reassembling it, he found the cause of the failure--it wasn't plugged in.n MR. CITRON: HI heard he was also working on movie equipment. He can't help much, some of those new movies are bad.u MRS. CROW: HYes, that's what Ken says. He says those horror movies are really terrible.H MR.

It says Peg Savage, mother of 12, has been appointed by the Peace Corps to go to Africa to unite the Savages.H ll MR. CITRON: ' HI also heard that Susan Attridge went with her and fell in love with and married one of the Pygmies.' MR. KENDRICK: HSpeaking of savages, doesn't Julie still belong to that group called Job' Daughters, and is a very active member? I heard she was promoted,though, and became one of Job's Mothers.h MR. MAU: Uwe finally discovered why Kim hadn't been'coming to many dances that year While talking to his practitioner, I learned that he was very bashful around girls! Last week Kim opened up a new agency. It called 'Hertz Rent a Mule' and it puts you in the saddle.H MRS. McCARTY: III hear Melissa is still fond of airplanes.H MRS. CROW: HYes, but it's too bad about that because now shefs in trouble.H MRS. MCCARTY: ll 9 ll My gosh, what happened. MRS. CROW: Hwell, she was caught over Cuba, hi-jacking a plane. She's now known as 'Bird Miss of Alcatraz'.H MRS. AUSTIN: Hwhatever happened to her friend, Beth, the artist of the class? Did she use her talent?H MR. KENDRICK: HUse it?

He is not having any trouble for, according to the teachers at Berkeley Hall, he had the mentality of a kindergartner.H MR. CITRON: UHave you been reading that new column in the paper, 'Bleichman's Blaborous Blarney'? Shari Bleichman has been writing while being an inventor in her spare time. She invented and patented her new lotion called 'Shari's Sure Freckle Remover'.H MR. NAU: HHas anyone heard anything about James Wait?H MRS.AUSTIN: HOh, yes, I did. He became a famous rock 'n roll singer. I heard his first song was a big smash called 'Big Jamesf. He also had something to do with Agnes, didn't he?H MRS. CROW: HYes, she's now one of the richest women in the world since she, pardon the expression, became a golddigger. She certainly has changed since she was in school.H MR. KENDRICK: HMy Lyn is also quite rich since she became a writer. She writes a lovelorn column and gets hundreds of letters a week. She was also a marriage counselor, seeing as how she could never get married and had to become a matchmaker for other couples.H MRS. MCCABTY: A 'Say, does anybody know what Bonnie Nance and Carol Mau are doing?H MR. CITRON: Hwell, Carol has been quite active in show business. She has forged several of the star's footprints for the Chauman's Grinese Theater on Bollywood Houlevard including Natalie Wood, Dick Chamberlain, Lassie, and Donald Duck.H MRS.

CROW: HAnd has anybody heard anything about Dave Drake? Well, he has developed an atomic surfboard so the Navy can land Marines faster on troublesome islands. I heard that Doree has something to do with water, too.H CLASS PROPHECY..Continued MR. KENDRICK: Yes, she finally filled all her ambitious goals. She's the Number One water girl for Johnny Crawford's 'Wild West Show'. Nancy's also Joined the show to teach horses how to laugh--I mean whinny. You know, she was known for her laugh, which she finally succeeded in changing only recently.H Ktape recordingl MRS. McCARTY: MSO far nobody's mentioned Ronald Krisel. Whatever happened to him?H MR, MAU: HOh, he became an archaeologist and has searched the world over to find out if Mrs. O'Connor is really as old as she says. He finally found the information in Egypt when he discovered a poem in some old buildings that goes like this: 'Of all the queens along the Nile, There's none that come in greater style, Than that one to whom kings bow low, That great Alchemist, Mrs. Ellen O!! It's all published in a book called The Rise and Fall of Cleopatra O'Connor by Tut-ankh-amen-Kr1sel.H FROM 8:30 to 8:30 A secret? No, it's out now.Every- one knows we had a marvelous time! The date was June M, 1963, at 8:M3, and we left from Berkeley Hall. That morning no one seemed to even miss us! Why wasn't there any panic? Because there was only one answer: the Ninth Grade is having Ditch Day at the Arthur's Ranch. . Yes, at 8:45 the Ninth Grade went to the Farmers'Market where a bus W8.S waiting for them. From there they proceeded on a two hour ride to San Luis Rey. But the ride was not a boring one, for all the way down Mrs. O'Connor, who laid down her whip for the occasion, kept us sing- ing our Class Song. When the bus arrived, Mrs. Arthur met us with hot cocoa. During the day, the Ninth Grade rode horseback, played baseball, took walks, danced, bounced in a horse-drawn wagon, took a dip in the pool, and enjoyed a western chuck wagon dinner prepared by a celebrated cowboy cook. To the sorrow of all, we then loaded into the bus and headed for civilization, parents, and school work. iii... LET'S GO TO LUNCH! by Bonnie Nance Gurgle, sputter, roar. A new air conditioner? No, the Ninth Grade at 12:15 with history almost over. Can we last eight more long,long minutes? Take grades? No, just finished that. An argument over English? Ah, per- fect excuse for Mrs. O'Connor to smile hungrily and say, HLet's go to lunch.U Within fifteen secohds nhorror halln is evacuated. To observers, the long trek to the cafeteria resembles rush hour on the San Diego Freeway A with the hungry cars passing,honking, or stepping on the heels of cars that had big breakfasts. Ah, destination! What! Eighth Grade still in line? Well, here comes another long wait. At last! Shoot! They've taken down the menu. Guess they want to surprise us. Well, they have, only peanut butter sandwiches and pears left! There's always tomorrow. in the meantime, work, work, eat big breakfasts and pray miracle that will enable us to lunch earlier. But work, for a to go PARENTS' DELIGHT Hwhat did you say this is calledf' asked a panting father. Hwell, it''s really..what it is, is..a combination of the mash, bird, slop, fish, and twist, common- ly known as the 'mardsloshist'.n lloh' Il Our annual Parents' Fortnightly of April 26, 1963, was a joyful occasion for all. COne of the reasons for this was the active par ticipation of both the parents and the studentsl. All the parents, grinning from ear to ear, were bustled into the auditorium.Each found a seat where they were sure they would not miss anything. One of the highlights of the evening was the movie star dance, the parents being the stars behind the curtains. Imagine the shock when Lassie, Gypsy Rose Lee, Mr. Ed, Fred Flintstone, Woody Wood- pecker, and Donald Duck turned out to be our dignified K?D parents! At least it enlightened us as to what other parents watch on TV. Then the parents witnessed with wide eyes the newest dances that are sweeping the Nation. Some of the parents had evidently learned these from their children. This was proved when the Charleston-twist contest was won by a father and his daughter. Also, though I don't like to admit it, there seems to have been more parents left in the lemon dance! The night was enjoyable because everyone had been looking forward to this occasion and was intent on making it a success. The parents had fun, but were ready to return to their own world now. These happy dances help to make Berkeley Hall the fine School that it is .xx-ag. Elf" W .f M" ffq::jT X J! X if Q:-siax THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING by Lyn Kendrick and Kim Austin The two voices rang out loud and clear, his a deep bass voice and hers as light as a cloud. Each held you entranced by the thrill and magic in his words. These two people brought Joy and gratitude as the First and Second Readers for the Ninth Grade Thanksgiving Testimonial Meeting at Berkeley Hall School. Beth Hill and George Burnette were the selected couple who conducted the lovely service in the auditorium on Novem- ber 21. The Ninth Grade boys acting as ushers added a dignified touch to the service. Lyn hostess, greeted Mrs. Brookins, a beautiful hymn Third Psalm. She Kendrick, our our guests. the soloist, sang based on the Twentys was accompanied on the piano by Mrs. Purtle. The impressive readings from the desk were followed by testimonies given by the Junior High students. The ceremony was well presented and everyone participated. Thank you, Mrs. O'Connor, for your many hours of diligent study and practice ...1.....-..-.1.- THE COMMON MARKET by Lyn Kendrick and Kim Austin Last fall the Ninth Grade present- ed an assembly discussing the Common Market in Europe. The speak- ers included Steve Arthur, Kim Austin, Doree Citron, Melinda McMa- han, Bonnie Nance, Peg Savage, and James Wait. The realization that the Common Market is one of the most important developments since World War II, instigated our study. The Common Market was explained from all angles such as the countries in it, its main purpose, its good and bad points and the sacrifices made for it. The assembly was excellently pre- sented, and a comment was made that the color scheme of the speakers blended together to add Hthat cer- tain touch.n ...1...l..-i I GALA MIKADO by Jan Meyhaus The dramatic Ninth Grade on November 9, 1962, presented HThe Mikadon by the musical comedy team, Gilbert M Sullivan. The Ninth Grade girls artistical- ly decorated the stage in Oriental fashion. The background and costumes were a perfect blend of Oriental reality. The Mikado was played by the il- lustrious Dave Drake, his son,Nanki Poo,was the gallant Kim Austin. Steve Arthur was a most realistic Ko Ko, his ward, Melissa Bosler, was the delectable Yum Yum. Shari Bleichman and Melinda McMahan were the Htrue to lifen giggling sisters. Jan Meyhaus, as Katisha, did a thoroughly professional job. We all extend our appreciation to Mrs. Ruth Dlouhy, the Director and Producer, for her assistance, criti- cism, and understanding patience. It was a job well done in a true Berkeley Hall manner. .....1..i..a1.. A KING ENTOMBED by Randy Rice The Ninth Grade left Berkeley Hall about twelve-thirty on Novem- ber IM, l962,to go on a field trip to the Los Angeles County Museum. An exhibition on King Tutankhamen, better known as King Tut, was the main attraction of the day. The Ninth Grade assembled at the Museum and went as a group through the exhibitions. First, an employee of the Museum gave us facts and dates about the King. This Pharoah is remembered mainly because his tomb brought to the world much val- uable information about his time. After the lecture we proceeded to see some of these treasures. They consisted of mystery enshrowded objects such as pottery, boxes, linen, statues mostly made of ala- baster and inlaid with glass and semi-precious stones. Among the more valuable things were a solid gold walking stick, two solid gold rings, and a beautiful and well crafted dagger A' ' f'A Jsgij. I A MODERN MIRACLE by Melissa Bosler Everyone knew it was wonderful, everyone knew it was great! Our Shield is a modern miracle, our dance a smashing success. HHow will we ever top it?H mournfully muttered the future ninths. Each Ninth Grader worked long, but joyfully, to perfect our Shield for loved Shield Hall. You may view it anytime you wish. It will be there always. Excelled--NEVER!! The preparation and presentation of our dance was original, delight- ful, and awesomely received. Stream- ers, balloons, and beauty were over- head. A I h Our tremendous Ninth appeared through a castle door depicting Shield Hall. Down a long elegant red carpet we marched to sing our mighty song. The audience was breathless! The spotlight caught our Shield-- SUPREMEE SUMPREME! SUPREME! THE CHRISTMAS FORMAL V by Susan Attridge G George Burnette On a cold winter night, December 1M to bi exact, the Christmas For- mal was eld. As the ladies and gentlemen of the Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Grades came into the audi- torium, they were impressed by the beautifully decorated Christmas tree. This had been prepared by the Moth- ers' Club. The delicious array of sandwiches and punch was enjoyed by all. The girls' corsages and lovely dresses added to the festive appearance of the occasion. The Eighth Grade girls brought a holiday atmosphere by picturing HChristmas in Foreign Lands on the auditorium walls. The singing of Christmas carols concluded our night of fun. It was truly a night to be remembered. At this point we stopped for a welcome picnic lunch. At two-thirty we saw a film. After a memorable day, we proceeded thoughtfully schoolward. luluuun 4 .mf H74 LITTLE PIGSH HI wonder who will get my box,Hthe girls thought as they waited nerv- ously for the bidding to start. HSure hope I choose the right box. Gee, they're all so good,H thought each boy as Mr. Nelson walked up to the stage to start the bidding. The HBox Socialu had started as a huge success, but the best part was yet to come--the boys'bidding for the boxes. What an array of boxes appeared: an airport, the Raven on the bust of Pallas, a surf wagon, three huge little pigs, a covered wagon with HBerkeley Hall or Bustu, and the Toni Twins, in addition to several other extravaganzas. HI hope Mr. Nelson dcesn't drop it, I'd rather not have the olives and potato chips all over the floonn she said to another girl. nWasn't that dance fun? And I got just the right boy,u each girl said. This year's Box Social was perfect. LIFESAVING by Bonnie Nance Glub, glub, glub..HWhat! Is that someone drowning? Look! Down there near the three foot marker. Do ya see her? I guess those five lengths before the lifesaving period began, got her.H Well, now that we know she's drowning, what shall we do to rescue her? Maybe we should throw her a life saver..CAlthough she dcesn't look very hungryl. Quick! Someone dive in after her. Well, girls let's argue which carry we should use to get our little water log out. Hair carry, cross chest, piggy back, feet first, or should we just drag her? Ahhh! After all sorts of odd look- ing maneuvers they finally made it. Now to get her out and apply artifi- cial respiration. But how? Our victim is finally safe. Ohl It's Miss Letts. I guess her shoe lace got tied together the last time she demonstrated how to disrobe under water. FOR SALE COLUMN An encyclopedia for agruments..

THE SPRING FORMAL by Peg Savage The Spring Formal was the last but happiest dance of the year. The theme of the decorations made by the Eighth Grade girls was Alice in Wonderland. when the girls arrived in their beautiful formals, they received a gardenia wrist corsage. The boys, some wearing white jackets, looked very handsome. On this special night instead of playing records, a band was engaged. This made it a more gala affair. We had a corner, lemon, and number dance. As the number dance proceeded your number was called and you left the dance floor for refreshments. Instead of being met by pretzels and apple cider, you saw a beautiful cake, many kinds of sandwiches, and punch. The dancing and fun continued for there was never a dull moment. As the last dance approached, everyone was sad but happy for the fun-filled year of dances. --.-l--1 S L A N D E R S H E E T by Susan Attridge, Janalee Meyhaus, and Nancy Kohler E 2 MAIN WITTY f CAN YOU SUBJECT Q ACCLAIM DITTO AIM FOR FAME PET PEEVE IMAGINE?
