The man is Mr. Leo Dressler. He Teaches LaTin To Those who care To learn iT: he does remarkably well wiTh Those who don'T. He has a way oT giving someThing To everyone who knows him-someThing rich and very human. IT is a rare giTT. He has a way abouT him, a good way. He is a man who makes people happy. The man Teaches his subiecT well. He has a magic: he can Turn almosT any indiTFerence inTo enThusiasm. He inspires in his sTudenTs a very real desire To learn, because he Teaches ThaT iT is good To learn noT merely because we musT pass in a subiecT, buT because There is a Treasure in iT-someThing ThaT can be ours iT we are willing To work. He is a man who knows how To smile. He smiles aT The dull and The TalenTed alike, and none can resisT smiling back. He can laugh, and he wanTs you To laugh. He likes you, and he wanTs you To like him. You do. You may be The rare one who doesn'T like his subiecT when he is Through Teaching iT. BUT you cannoT be The one who does noT like and respecT him. ThaT one does noT exisT. He has anoTher way-a way oT coming inTo a classroom and making iT brighT and alive. Though he is genTle, he has a Tremendous energy because he is Torever young. He is noT a policeman. This is an odd Thing. He doesn'T need To be. He places The responsibiliTy Tor your behavior in your hands: he appeals To your inTegriTy. You Try very hard noT To Tail him. He knows iT, and you know iT. And so There is oTTen a very good Thing beTween you- friendship. We have said ThaT This man is a man who makes people happy. IT is True. Because he knows a secreT-ThaT happiness is wiThin you. and someTimes you are shy and unsure, and iT is hidden. He knows ThaT whaT you need is someone To help you bring your happiness ouT inTo The sunlighT. He knows ThaT you someTimes need a Triend. He has a digniTy ThaT comes Trom knowing ThaT you have digniTy. He has many good ways abouT him. He will be young as long as he lives. We pray he lives a very long Time. He is real and very human. He is happy, and oThers are macle happy because oT iT. Leo Dressler is a man To remember.

We are now going lorlh info lhe world and no longer face lhe lrivial problems lhaf we have encounlered while in Lane, buf we lace lhe world and its problems, which we all know musl' be deall wilh realislically. You and l are no longer slriving for our diplomas, buf are slriving for world peace which is so im- porlanl' lo us and our poslerily. I sincerely hope lhal we all will work as hard to achieve lhis peace as we have worked 'ro receive our diplomas. We have spenl many enioyable moments in Lane and will always remember lhem, and. of course, we shall never lorqel' our classmales and friends who have made our slay so pleasanf. For you and me lhese cherished memories will be reborn from lime 'lo lime as we glance 'rhrough lhis book which will, in years 'lo come, be 'lhe only 'fangible lhing we have lell lo recall our four years spenl in Lane. Joan Newell I SHALL NOT SCREAM NOR PREACI-I . I have a lacl lo reporl. A recenl poll reporls lhal racial and religious preiudice is again on lhe upswing. I have somelhing lo say. Please Iislen. Whal I have lo say will lake only a lillle lime. I shall nol scream nor preach, allhough lhal ugly lacl is as near lo me and as personal wilh me as my own skin. I shall only lalk a lillle . . . I cannol lell ol how insidious lhis halred is and has always been, any beller lhan counlless olhers have lold il in lhe pasl. So I shall only lalk ol whal I have lound lo be lrue, in my own lile, in sevenleen years. I have lound lhal people have a greal deal lo give. People can give so much lhal is warm and human, so much ol lhe rich experience lhal is parl ol living. So much is being wasled. I lhink lhere is no grealer experience on earlh lhan lhal ol meeling each person as a dilferenl, unique individual. When we iudge people singly, only by whal lhey prove lhemselves lo be, we enrich ourselves many limes over. And we lose lhis opporlunily every day ol our lives. We lhrow il down a long, never ending drain ol human wasle. We are limid or resenllul because we are lhe oppressed, and we draw ourselves inlo our sullen, narrow lillle shells ol hale, and judge lhe many by lhe aclions ol lhe lew. Or we consider lhose who have commilled lhe unlorlunale blunder ol being born "dillerenl," sub-human. ll is all lhe same. I-lalred is a lwo-edged sword, and lhe hand which holds il always bleeds. I-lale is all lhe same-wilh an ugly sameness. Bul we as people are nol all lhe same, Each generalion is dillerenl. And ours musl be lhe mosl dillerenl, beller in lhis respecl lhan any olher. We have inheriled loo much lo have il any olher way. There is somelhing very promising in lhe air-somelhing low bul slrong, some- lhing akin lo a murmur. ll is more lhan iusl lhe speeches lhal are made, lhe arlicles lhal are wrillen. There is a yen,-iziwjy lo a wrong, lhe realizalion lhal lhere is an injuslice and lhal as long as some are nol sale, none are sale. This age is one in which lhe oppressed have more freedom, more dignily, more happiness lhan ever before. We have behind us many lhings ol which lo be ashamed, bul lhere is also a record ol progressive improvemenl. Ahead ol us lhere is lhe vasl, pressing need ol compleling lhe iob . . . as quickly as possible. We have loughl lwo wars lo remain free. Now we are laced wilh lhe job ol selling democracy. We musl improve our producl lirsl. We musl speak oul aboul whal is righl and wrong. We musl praclice whal we so ollen preach. We musl make lhe "iuslice lor all," which we promise in our pledge ol allegiance lo lhe flag, an everyday realily in our republic. We musl judge each individual and each counlry separalely and carelully. This is nol an easy way. Bul we have lo make il our way. No one else will ever care as much as we do.

Pulling lhe package in her room, she wenl lo gel a knile lo cul lhe slring il was lied wilh. She walked very slowly, because she was sure she would lrip on her high heels il she weren'l carelul.

For some unexplained reason, Jenniler lound a lear sliding lenderly down her cheek: lhis she quickly brushed away. "Hey, Jen, il's seven-lhirly.

I've been handed a raw deal, The shorf end of a bad bargain, and I'm noT going To Take iT lying down. Back in grade school, when I was as yef happily unaware of whaT my fufure acfually held, I liked To anficipafe a youTh of unresfrained growfh of body, and spiriT, and mind, and happiness. I was desperafely eager To learn as much as I could abouf as many Things as possible. Canada and Europe and, oh, a dozen ofher places would be sources of beaufy and culfure for me. I wanTed so much To geT To know people and like Them, To aTTain one day a True wisdom, To live a life rich wifh varied experiences. And I wanTed To give myself, my efforfs, all I could, To The world, in refurn for The happiness I should derive from iT. BuT, on approaching The Time when I am To Take my place as a ciTizen of our madcap globe, whaT do I find? I find myself loaded down wiTh The burden of a cenfury of ofher peopIe's greed and folly. I'm sevenfeen, and I wanT an unresfrained good sTarT in life. BuT I've firsT goT To Take care of a Palesfinian problem, a famine problem, a de-NazificaTion problem, an afomic bomb problem, a prejudice problem, a labor problem, and I'm afraid To look for any more for The cerTainTy of finding Them. I-low can I help myself? I feel ThaT sysTems of governmenf or of economics do noT sTarT wars or resulT in inTernal sTrife. IT is The characfer of an individual naTion's governmenT ThaT may lead iT To a policy of aggression, of violence, of deceiT: The characTer of iTs ciTizens who allow Their governmenf To acT in such a manner in Their name. There is no room for selfishness, for peTTiness, for The sTupidiTy of an aTTiTude of hope wiThouT acTion in This and in fuTure generaTions. And I will make iT my business To keep This lesson clear and always in mind. I will noT permif myself To become in- differenf To The world ThaT exisTs beyond my home and office, will noT permiT myself To neglecl' my vofing privileges, will noT permif myself To idly look on while my children absorb The hafes and preiudices ThaT may exisT in my communify. And I live wifh and cherish The faiTh ThaT some day, Through The sTrengTh of The combined efforfs of The many, many people of my generafion who feel as I do, we will seTTle This quarrel. JaneT Demsky MEMORIES Franklin K. Lane will hold many memories for us, The sTudenT body, affer gradua- Tion. The four years spenT in Lane will well be remembered. The fun in The classrooms, cramming for an exam aT lunch, freshmen wandering around The halls, "The Lane ReporTer," Those dreaded Regenfs, S. S. cards, cuTTing a class for The firsT and lasf Time, are some of The many phases of school life Thaf remain. Our Senior semesfer is probably our mosT cherished semesler of school. The Senior Dance, Class Nighf, Prom, and finally Graduafion end our life aT Lane. Alfhough our high school days are over, our memories of Franklin K. Lane will linger wiTh us forever.

My hand- maidens, in cosTumes nearly as lovely as mine, were Tanning me wiTh large pink and green osTrich TeaThers, and aT my elbow, a marble Table was loaded down wiTh all sorTs oT The besT TruiTs and sweeTs. Chained To one side oT my Throne was my peT lion, and a Tew sTeps away rose-peTals were TloaTing in a shimmering pool. My many servanTs and sTaTesmen were busily conducTing all my aTTairs so There were iusT my prisoner, his Two guards, and my chieT execuTioner around me. My prisoner well knew ThaT I was iusT as hard as I was beauTiTul, buT he was silenTly pleading wiTh me Tor leniency.

To look aT me wiTh my golden curls piled high upon my head, and my TIaTTer- ing sky blue dress, everyone TeIT a pang oT envy mixed wiTh deep admiraTion. In my closing aria I surpassed Them all, and when The veIveT curTain came down, a bursT of applause rang ouT, equal To none which I had ever heard. As I came Torward To meeT The ovaTion, and To receive The many bouqueTs oT Tlowers, I glanced aT The Thousands oT Taces in The greaT MeTropoIiTan Opera I-louse, and I was in my glory.

There was much I could be proud oT because, alThough I was sTill a young woman, I had capTured more rare specimens and dug up more skeleTons Than any oT my asso- ciaTes.

My husband gafhered me in his sfrong arms, and pulled me close fo him, eagerly waifing 'ro press his lips on mine, fo fell me once again of his undying love. All af once, someone shook me. Perhaps if was fhe jealous Queen. As I furned around fo see, I mef only a fluffy whife pillow. The hand on my shoulder persisfed in shaking and shaking me: so I was obliged fo look up. The sudden shock of seeing my mofher immediafely and very decidedly woke me up fo fhe facf fhaf I was iusf my old humdrum self who would be going fo school in anofher half hour, and would live fhe same humdrum life 'rhaf I had been living for nearly eighfeen years.

ATTer Tour years in Franklin K. Lane, I have begun To realize how much an educaTion can mean. A good educaTion leads To The road oT a successful life and good characTer. My experiences in Lane will help me when I enTer The business world. I have noT only gained much knowledge from my subiecTs, buT also Trom my experience wiTh sTudenTs and club acTiviTies. These clubs prove mosT enioyable. and They help a person gain new Triends. Knowing how To gain new Triends and keep Them is a valuable asseT To one enTering The business world. This is one oT The many advanTages I have gained Trom my Tour years in Lane, and I am very graTeTuI Tor This experience. I shall never TorgeT Lane, or my Senior year.

I'll admiT ThaT There were plenTy of Times when I would raTher noT have seen Lane's Tower in The morning. However, deep down in my hearT, I know ThaT I really love Lane.

I if M, QL BOYS' SPORTS AT The end oT This Term we, who are sporlsing Those big Senior Pins, hope To Take The sTep which we consider The greaTesT we have Talcen Thus Tar in liTe. To some OT us, The sTay aT Lane was Tilled wiTh Trials and TribulaTions: To oThers iT has been a happy Tour lor morel year period. However, we all leave wiTh one pleasanT memory which, Through The years To come, will probably remain ToremosT in our minds. ln order To lceep This memory Tresh in your minds, we have dug deep inTo The Tiles To give you This review oT Lane sporTs acTiviTies. T-TOOPSTER PARADE Because The baslceTball Team is The highlighT oT discussion aT presenT, we shall sTarT our review wiTh iT. When we TirsT came To Lane, Willie Zirlcel was a prominenT player. The 6 TooT, 3 inch souThpaw led The SouTh Shore P.S.A.L. division in scoring Tor The I944'I945 season. ln The aTore-menTioned season, Zirlcel was ably baclced up by an all-sfar lineup. Tom Gibbons, CarleTon Irish, Ed LoeTler, and lvlorTy Schorr were The oTher Tour on The sTarTing squad. They, wiTh The assisTance OT Augie Di Fusco, Bob Flynn, and Julie TrubowiTz, TirsT sTring subsTiTuTes, broughT The CounTy Liners To The Garden play oTTs, where They were deTeaTed by EasTern DisTricT, 32-3l. The Tollowing season saw Di Fusco, Flynn, and TrubowiTz playing in The sTarTing lineup, wiTh newcomers Norm Kramer, Alex Shinlcaricln, and DICK TAXIS also playing TirsT sTring ball. This squad also wenT To The Garden, only To be deTeaTed by Monroe T-ligh. The sTrongesT Lane Team on record since The l93O championship Team saw acTion in The l9464I947 season. TrubowiTz, Shinlcariclc, TAXIS, Flynn,and Di Fusco were pounding The boards during The TirsT halT. However, The services oT The TirsT Three were losT aT The halTway marlc. They were replaced by Norm Kramer and newcomers Joe SmyThe and Dave Wallcer. This Team wenT Through To The quarTer-Tinals beTore They were sTopped by Commerce, 5836. JANUARY I948 69 DICK TAXIS, The only member oT The Team To be graduaTed wiTh us, will be back wiTh The hoopsTers again This season. AnoTher Senior is FLOYD GOLD, non- playing manager, who, unlike his predecessor, Herbie BuTler, never scored Two poinTs Tor Lane. , IN THE DRINK In The Time we have spenT in Lane, The naTaTors have had Three coaches. Because of The deaTh of Mr. Hugh Jones, Mr. Harry SmiTh was senT from anoTher school To Take over The Team in I945. ln The nexT season, Mr. Carl Schoening, The presenT coach, was TransTerred Trom Thomas JeTTerson High School To Lane. All Three, however, had a hand in The coaching oT such ouTsTanding swimmers as: bacl:sTroker Hank AuwarTer, whose broTher Dick has now Taken over his duTies: Jack Clancy, a TasT Tree-sTylerg Len GoldsTone, sTar long disTance swimmer: Hank SchmidT, Tancy diver, and Chubby Howell, anoTher speedy Tree-sTyler. All hold All-Oueens honors. Marching down The aisle wiTh us aT CommencemenT will be The presenT capTains oT The naTaTors, HAL GARRETT and JULIE JERMANOK, and Tree-sTyle, DICK LAMPE, who have broughT The Schoeningmen Through To many a vicTory. DIAMOND CHATTER Now leT's Take a look across The sTreeT inTo DexTer Park, where we see an all-sTar Lane baseball Team in iTs pre-game warm-up. On The side we see Bob Forge, The lanky righT-hander, being warmed up by The hard hiTTing caTcher, Ray Gallagher. TroTTing down To The bullpen To geT ready in case The going geTs Too rough is Coach Berman's sTar souThpaw, Len JaTTe, accompanied by Jerry Weiler, anoTher able backsTop, while Trailing close behind are Bob Grimm and WalT Turke, Two righT-handers. Behind The plaTe, where he will sTarT, is The sTrong-armed receiver, Joe Falco. as- sisTing in The infield warmup. Taking his peg aT TirsT base is Carl Tranchina, while his successors, TOM BOCCIO and DOM CALVANO, are waTching him To pick up valu- able poinTers. WaiTing Tor his relay around The inTield are: second baseman, John Dore: shorT-sTop, Tom Churillo. who is now playing class "C" ball on The Dodger farm: and Third basemen, Ken Dixon, whose predecessor, Mike Ouagliarello, is looking on. In The ouTTield are Mike Marmo, Ernie Mamay, and Gene RicheTTi, while on The bench are ED HERRMANN, Carle Miller, and George Michel, all eagerly waiTing Their chance. Also on The bench are Rocky Laurino and BUCKY LEOPOLD, boTh second baseman. Churillo, Forge, JaTTe, Marmo, and RicheTTi all hold All-Queens honors. STRIKES AND SPARES - In This resume we cannoT TorgeT The Keglers, who, under The able guiding oT Mr. Larry Rubinow, broughT The divisional championship To Lane Tor The TirsT Time since Their enTrance in The League Two years ago. The Two Jerries, LindsTadT and MasTilone, head The parade of bowlers. In Their sTay aT Lane boTh hiT well over The Two hundred mark more Than once. NexT comes Al Holmes, who also is on record Tor hiTTing ThaT score. He is followed by BERNY CORSO, TOM PROVENZANO and Bob Lorenz. CORSO, who has been capTain for The pasT Two seasons, and PROVENZANO will also receive Their sheepskins in January. Paul SulTar 70 SENIOR ECHOES GIRLS' SPORTS As we receive our hard earned diplomas aT CommencemenT, and Thus pass anofher milesTone in our careers, memories of bygone, buf noT forgoTTen days, will pass in review before our minds. We will Think noT only of The English Teachers who Tried franTically To drive grammar info our heads, buf of The many inTeresTing and exciTing evenfs ThaT we experienced, noT only in our daily gym classes, buT in affer-school sporTs acTiviTies as well. I I'm sure none of us will ever forgeT ThaT firsT day in gym when everybody had a clean new gym suiT on, Thus making us all look and feel like The Bloomer Girls. Nor will we soon forgeT The Times when we dashed inTo class iusf before The laTe bell, our hair dripping weT, and some smarT classmafe would call ouT, "Did you go swimming?" IT seems nobody was smarT enough, Though, To derive a meThod whereby we could wear our sfockings under our gym socks or chew gum in class wiThouT Mrs. Reid's or Mrs. Dunklee's noficing iT. Now, leT's meeT some of Those girls from The AThleTic Council and The Ospreys who gave so much of Their Time To organizing AThIeTic Clubs and puTTing on Terrific waTer pageanTs, and spending so much Time aT iT ThaT They were undecided whefher or noT They should sTay on speaking Terms wiTh Their parenTs or seT up a new home in Lane. FirsT, IeT me infroduce JOAN MAZZETTI, who has capably filled The office of PresidenT of The Blue and Grey AThIeTic Council for Two Terms, and who is really an all-around aThleTe. NexT in our parade of aThleTic ceIebriTies is SYLVIA GAGLIANO, who served as Treasurer of The Council Twice in a row. Alfhough on The shorT side, Syl has no Trouble whafever in guarding The besT of forwards in a baskefball game. Besides being chairman of The BaskeTbaIl Club several Terms, JOAN NEWELL can also be seen, as Co-capfain of The Cheerleaders, cheering our Lane Teams on To vicTory. Then There's SHIRLEY NICHOLLS, whose keen shooTing makes her invaluable as a I-Ioopsfer, and who can clear The high jump aT four feeT eighT. MARIE CORSELLO is The Council's only represenTaTive on The Bowling Club, and a very able represenTaTive she is. Following close behind are ELEANOR DORSEY and MARION l'lENRlCI'l, who have helped To make The AThIeTic Council The success ThaT iT is. The Ospreys will be lef+ in a desperaTe posiTion when six of iTs members graduafe This Term. Leading The lisT are PI-IYLLIS KASPAREIT, our Queen Fish, and PI-IILECE ERI-ISAM. BoTh girls have had ouTsTanding parTs in The Two waTer pageanTs, "ChrisTmas FanTasy" and "KaTrinka." Phil noT only swims, buf serves a mean ball when iT comes To Tennis-Take iT from one who found ouT The hard way. DOLORES DUETCI-I, our Penguin, can ofTen be found gliding Through The waTer wiTh The grace and ease of a fish. Of course, we can never omiT BARBARA COSHER or BARBARA SILENZI- wonderful people as well as wonderful swimmers. And aT The end of The lisT we find YOURS TRULY, who has Tried To do her besT as Vice-PresidenT of The Council, and Princess Fish of The Ospreys. Believe me, when I say I have loved every minufe of iT. On To our regularly scheduled affernoon AThIeTic Clubs, of which The mosT im- porTanT is The Leaders' Club. As The name implies, The girls of This club are Trained To be leaders and are prepared for The Afhlefic Council. Girls from The Leaders Club, as well as many oThers, parficipafed in Two inTeresTing assembly programs ThaT The Girls Health EducaTion DeparTmenT puT on. NoT only did our BaskeTbaIl Club aTTracT a JANUARY I948 7I huge crowd, buT also ThaT Council-FaculTy baskeTbalI game where The TasT shoofing and hard hiTTing Council Team ouT-poinTed a sTrong FacuITy Team. Our Volleyball and Modern Dance Clubs are also quiTe popular, and many a sTrong volleyball Team has won honors. AlThough Hockey has been inTroduced To Laneifes before, iT is only recenT- ly ThaT iT has been revived. Alfhough iT Takes a hardy person To play Hockey, iT's loTs of Tun. I can sTill remember The Playdays when all of Lane's aThleTic clubs enTerTained many aThleTically-minded gals from various oTher high schools in The neighborhood. Before I close, I know The girls of The AThleTic Council would like To Thank Mrs. Reid for her paTience and guidance in making Lane's aThleTic acTiviTies possible. WiTh- ouT you, Mrs. Reid, many wonderful Things could never have been accomplished. Nexf, The Ospreys wanf To Thank Mrs. Bauer Tor her unTiring efforfs To puT on Top-noTch waTer pageanTs. Her eTTorTs were rewarded wiTh success. Lasfly, we wish To Thank Mrs. Somers, Mrs. Duncklee, Mrs. Riback, Mrs. Budwash. Mrs. Jacobs, Miss Levy, and Mrs. LoveTT Tor The parTs They have played in mainfaining our sporTs program during and aTTer school.
