Mr. and Mrs. Osherenko through
their generosity have helped to
make our annual a success. They
have provided the magnificent
cover, the center spread of four
pages, and also the spiral bind-
ing. We are grateful for their
love of Berkeley Hall which
prompted this generosity and
helped us to present one of the
finest annuals ever composed.

THE NURSERY CUTIES
by Shari Bleichman, Melissa Bosler,
Sh-h-h! Aren't they adorable, when
asleep? 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
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

A small boy was walking along and
found a stone. He remarked: HOh,look,

THE GOLDEN AGE OF LEARNING
by Christine Morse, Peg Savage,
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
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
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,
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-
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,
by David Drake, Agnes Montgomery,
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
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.

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

Ccontinued next columnjf
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.
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
NINTH GRADE BEHIND THE FIFTH GRADE?
by Kim Austin, George Burnette,
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
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
WORKING IN A TREE HOUSE
by Janalee Meyhaus, Don McCarty,
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
What a wonderful grade this is!
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
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.

OUR READING LABORATORY
by Todd Culbertson
This year the Seventh Grade was
very fortunate to receive the SRA
Reading Laboratory. 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
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
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
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
us and made a decision. His decision
confirmed that of the class: both
men were the greatest of their time.
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.
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

Under the supervision of MTS.
Richards, the 'Royal Seventh Grade

on display in the Berkeley Hall
cafeteria for the Ninth Grade
Fashion Show and remained there
through the Parents' Invitational
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
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!
OUR FIRST JUNIOR HIGH ASSEMBLY

Our first assembly was about
Hastronauts.H The participants were
Christine Carlson, Caryn Citron,
Todd Culbertson, Greg Tryon, and
We had been studying the poem,

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
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.
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.

Grade has been studying all the
instruments of the orchestra. The
whole class has enjoyed singing and
practicing for the Christmas and
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
we have thirteen students with all
blue cards. They are: Deborah Boughm

six blue cards
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
Near the end of the year, we put
our findings into a beautifully
decorated notebook along with all
the pictures we could find of
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-

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
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
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
Throughout the year the Eighth
Grade has been kept busy with skill-
ful four part harmony songs and
with our Eighth Grade Talent Show

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.
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

WHAT BERKELEY HALL MEANS TO ME
by Kenneth Crow ' P
Berkeley Hall is not an ordinary
academic institution. 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
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
Our beautiful campus sets the
pattern of beauty, peacefulness,and
serenity which helps to make our
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-

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF l963
by Kim Austin
The experiences and demonstra-
tions I have had at Berkeley Hall
are enough to put into a novel. My
dedication would be to all my
teachers and my copyright would be
the first year I entered Berkeley
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
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
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
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-
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
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.
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
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
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.

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

of HI Hope You Studied Your Rules

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.

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

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
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
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
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

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
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

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
HYes, I'd heard that Chris, with her experience in hair-styling,has
created a new hairdo to replace the flip. Do you think you will try it?H
HI don't know. What's it called?H
HOh, I think you'd look pretty good in it. It's called THE FLOP.n
uSay, do you remember Carol ever talking about Don or George?H
HDo I remember! Yes, of course.H
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
HI guess Mrs. Dlouhy was right after all. She always said George would
be successful in politics one way or another.n
nBy the way, Mrs. Crow, didn't you say that Ken was working on the IBM
machines at UCLA, guaranteed to flunk students?U
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
HI heard he was also working on movie equipment. He can't help much, some
of those new movies are bad.u
HYes, that's what Ken says. He says those horror movies are really
ll , ll ll - 9:1
Doesn t his classmate, Boris Rice produce some of them.
HYes, he does, and he's starring Jan Meyhaus in his new one called
Oh, look at this newspaper article. It says Peg Savage, mother of 12, has
been appointed by the Peace Corps to go to Africa to unite the Savages.H
MR. CITRON: '
HI also heard that Susan Attridge went with her and fell in love with
and married one of the Pygmies.'
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
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
hear Melissa is still fond of airplanes.H
HYes, but it's too bad about that because now shefs in trouble.H
ll 9 ll
My gosh, what happened.
Hwell, she was caught over Cuba, hi-jacking a plane. She's now known as
'Bird Miss of Alcatraz'.H
Hwhatever happened to her friend, Beth, the artist of the class? Did she
use her talent?H
HUse it? Why she became such a famous artist that she was hired as chief
artist for 'Mad Magazine'.H
HDid you know that Melinda McMahan inherited her family's furniture
NYes, and was put in the cell with Melissa after trying to sell some
defective furniture to the Hub Furniture Store.H
HHas anyone heard anything about Steve Arthur?H
wall! . JI A fix
CLASS PROPH CY..Continued
HYes, he's a doctor.H
Yes, he got a special degree and is figuring out the logic of a kinder-
gartener. He is not having any trouble for, according to the teachers at
Berkeley Hall, he had the mentality of a kindergartner.H
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
HHas anyone heard anything about James Wait?H
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
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
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
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
NAnd Bonnie finally bought the Metrecal Factory because she just couldn't
bear the thought of a meal without Metrecal cookies and drinks in five
delicious flavors and two sized cans.H
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
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
MSO far nobody's mentioned Ronald Krisel. Whatever happened to him?H
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
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:
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
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-
our Class Song.
When the bus arrived, Mrs. Arthur
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
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.
Hwhat did you say this is calledf'
asked a panting father.
Hwell, it's..it's really..what it
is, is..a combination of the mash,
bird, slop, fish, and twist, common-
ly known as the 'mardsloshist'.n
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
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.

Common Market in Europe. The speak-

The realization that the Common
Market is one of the most important
developments since World War II,

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

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-
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

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.

So begins our daily French class.
Mr. Dishian writes French homework
on the board, trying very hard to
rid us of our American accents.
Mr. Dishian then starts a rousing
solo of French songs, accompanied
by occasional squeaks.
HGee, it's almost time for Games,H
sighed some Ninth Graders at 2:27.
In these last three minutes, the class
suffers for its pranks by taking a
Cgulpl French test. After every word
patient Mr. Dishian dictates, a feeble
voice pipes up, HRepetez,sil vous plait.
Finally, all papers are turned in,
and one can hear sighs ofucaest la vie,H
as we French students file out of the
room. Mais, nous avons un professeur
deyouel Merci, M. Dishian.
