Dear Boys and Girls, R
As you glance through your year book, you will see pictures and
descriptions of many of the wonderful events that have taken place this
year at Stitt. Field day, 'the book fair, the Operetta and talent show,
club activities, the intervisitation project with J. H.S. 115, and the fine
assembly programs - these are only a few of the highlights of the busy
months now behind us.
But there is one golden thread woven through this tapesty of days. It
is best exemplified by our theme: TOGETHER WE WORK AND PLAY.
And the mostimportant of those five words is the first. Time after time
Ihave been proud of the way you have worked together as a team on the
different activities in which you have engaged. You have learned the
most important lesson of life, the lesson that the greatest satisfaction
comes from working with others toward a common goal.
A poem of mine expresses this feeling better perhaps than any other
message I could think of giving you. It reads as follows:
Who wanders in will look on more than school.
For here the young teach action to the old.
In every room the ancient Golden Rule
Becomes alive and stands as only gold.
They need no rule, these children black and white,
Who sit together, walk with arms entwined;
So close to God, they still reflect His light;
Not yet the dust of years has made them blind.
The emotion that inspired those verses may have been a trifle ex-
aggeratedgw but I do hope that the poem will serve to help some of you
remain as you are in your very best moments -images of the Spirit that
created all of us, regardless of race or nationality or creed.
I take this opportunity to thank the staff of the Year Book for the ex-
.cellent work they have done under the leadership of Mr. Jacober.
Finally, on behalf of the entire faculty I extend my warmest congratu-
lations to the graduates and their parents.

Graduates of 1957wi11 have far to go to reach
the heights of some of our famous former stu-
All of Stitt was thrilled to learn that one of
our first graduates has become a world famous
opera star. Maria Meneghini Callas has sung in
opera houses all over the world, particularly
La Scala in Milan, Italy. This past winter she
made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera House
here in New York City and was also seen by
millions of people on the Ed Sullivan Show on
television. . . . .
Another musical personality who attended
Stittis RichardStuart Flusser. He is the director
of the "After Dinner Opera" Company which has
received excellent reviews and toured Europe
in 1956. Mr. Flusser is now associated with the
Phoenix Theater .....
Elizabeth Palmer who was graduated in 1939
is now Dr. Elizabeth King .....
A teacher of. Art and Music at J. H.S. 139 is
Andrew Donaldson, who once attended Stitt. . . . .
Another Stitt graduate is Robert Schwartz a
banker at the Amalgamated Bank .....
A popular record of the past season was "I
Promise To Remember" sung by The Juniors.
This song was written by James Castor who left
Stitt in 1954 to attend The High School of Music
and Art. He also led the singing group.....
Another successful singing group on records
andin films is The Teenagers, all of whom went
to Stitt. The boys are Frankie Lymon, Joe
Negroni, James Merchant, and Sherman Garnes.
Two graduates from the class of 1955 have
already made us proud. John Williams has won
a scholarship to study drums at the Julliard
School of'Music. Edward Culbreath has made
Arista at the High School of Performing Arts
and plans to become a music teacher.....
Everyone at Stitt is rooting for the speedy
reCoverys and return of Mrs. Anita Fraser Du
Boulay. She has spent a large portion of her life
here atStittas both student and French teacher.
For a while, Mrs. Du Boulay actually lived in
France and taught English there.
We are all waiting to see how many of 1957's
graduates appear in this column in future years.
It's up to you.

MY L ITTLE B ROTHER
While I sit here writing this poem
My little brother starts to roam.
He sings and laughs and makes lots of noise.
Oh, why did they have to make little boys 7 ? ?
He reads comic books and Robin Hood
Instead of doing homework like he should.
He runs and jumps and plays with his toys,
Oh, why did they have to make little boys ? ? ?
He walks around the house with a gun and holster
Someday his face will be on a "wanted" poster.
His room is messy with games and toys
Oh, why did they have to make little boys ? ? ?
He tells jokes that are seldom funny
And tries to cheat you out of your money,
When you walk in his room, you trip on toys,
Oh, why did they have to make little boys ? ? ?
Now as this poem comes to an end i ,,
I can tell ou he is a wonderful friend , , - 1 ,
For there can never be another ,. , ; . jJi
Like my own sweet little brother. I, t V y ' 1g

Why do people rush about,
As thOugh life's span had run out?
I've seen them fall and bump and
And then come out in terrible shape.
Why do they run from place to place
As if in the contest of the human race?
Our jets, boats, and cars perform to
But still we try to get them better and
Fast as lightning same of them go,
h t3 '; ' As if they were going to miss life's
3 1 show.
X Man has found no time for rest,

What is brotherhood?
It is not people apart.
It's people working together.
In spirit and in heart.
Where is brotherhood ?
Deep in the hearts of the people,
It is like the church bell.
Ringing in the steeple.
It is like a bouquet.
One type of flower never satisfies,
It takes all blended together
To catch one's eyes.
What is the hope of the world?
Brotherhood the shining light.
It comes from the hearts of people.
And will Shine through darkest night.
Roger Watkins, 9- 304
DISCRIMINATION IN THE SOUTH
The Negroes in the South have the right,
To live anywhere and work, day or night,
The right to vote and speak their piece,
Because we all know segregation must cease.
In Birmingham they have called a bus boycott,
And that is one thing I like a lot.
We must do more than show remorse,
We will win this argument without force.
There are still things to be carried out,
Like putting the Ku Klux Klan to rout.
These are the things we should strive for,
And when peace will live forever more.
Carl Edelman, 8-404
THE BEAR CUB
One day I met a bear cub, while
walking through the zoo,
I was friendly, he was friendly
and kind of cute too.
He looked up at me from his
With a pair of coal black eyes,
As if to say please take me
Although he realized,
Someday I'd have to give him
And make him leave my home,
And send him to the country
Where he'll forever roam.

d so gaily
It was during my summer vacation at
Shadow Lake that I was really lost for the
first time in my life. The day was a wet,
muggy one and was ideal for salamander
Immediately after lunch, three friends
and myself started off for "Salamander
Road" eager to explore the woods in search
of salamanders. We crosseda creek aware
that there was no path to follow; only the
direction of the creek to look back upon.
After one hour the four of us had col-

was pretty good. We were about to turn
around and go back when we discovered
we did not know in which direction to go!
Howard, the oldest, told us to retrace our
steps, but that didn't do much good.
By this time .we were frightened to
death. We had been gone two hours and
hadn't the vaguest idea how to get home.
All of us started to scream at the top of
our lungs, but to no avail. It was growing
cold and getting late. We were constantly
walking, hoping to see the creek.
Finally, after what seemed days, we
heard the voices of our parents not far
from where we were. How glad we were to
see them! We rushedinto their arms, glad
that they arrived just then. We crossed
the creek and went home. What a day! A

Not long ago, Mr. and Mrs. Ronald
Carson moved froi'n Omaha, Nebraska to
a rented house on Long Island. They were
happy to find a home, because of the
One day while Mr. Carson was out,
Mrs. Carson busily prepared dinner. The
doorbell rang and she wondered who could
be paying a visit. She opened the door and
found a well-dressed young man smiling
"Are you Mrs. RonaldCarson, former-
ly of Omaha, Nebraska?"
"Yes, " she replied,
want to know?"
"Ofcourse you saw the Sudsy Soap Pro-
gram on television yesterday. "
"Why no," answered Mrs. Carson.
The young man smiled again, "Well, I
have good news for you. You have won the
weekly grand prize--two railroad tickets
to Omaha, Nebraska."
Mrs. Carson gasped and said, "Do you
really mean it?"
"Of course, " Then the young man
added, "If you don't care to accept the
prize, Sudsy Soap will hold another draw-
ing next week. "
"but why do you
Mrs. Carson replied excitedly, "By all
meansI'll accept the prize. Only the other
night my husband and I were talking about
moving back. He is not satisfied with his
new job here.
"I'll return later this evening with your

on the platform saying goodbye to the

window, smiling and wishing them a happy
"My boy," Mr. Carson called to him,
"you have been very kind and helpful. I
wish there was some way of showing you
our gratitude. "
"Oh, but you already have. "
"What do you mean?" asked both of the
Carsons in surprise.
"You see my family and I have searched
everywhere for a house on Long Island.
Now, thanks to your moving, we have
found one. Ohlby the way, Mrs. Carson,
when you get back to Nebraska don't waste
time looking for my brand of soap. You
won't find Sudsy Soap anywhere. "

I sat in a chair and fell asleep,
I had a dream that wasn't so meet.
Itwas sitting there in the Dentist Chair,
I bit my nails and pulled my hair.
The Dentist opened my mouth and looked inside,
He asked me what kind of food I abide.
I couldn't answer, I was too scared,
I would scream and holler if I dared.
No, I couldn't move; my bones said no,
I'd run straight home if I could go.
He looked at me and made a sorrowful sigh,
He said, "Your teeth are going to die!"
My eyes popped out, my nose did run,
I was a scared son of a gun.
My legs started to tremble, my feet wanted to fly,-
I was so scared I could die.
Then at that moment I did awake,
And resolved Better care of my teeth to take.
Dorothy Davis, 8-314
People are different wherever you go
Just as different as your head and your toe,
Some are quiet and quite reserved,
Some are noisy and like to make themselves heard.
But wherever you go you will probably find,
When you get to know them they're bound to be kind.

THE DAY THAT I WOULD LIKE TO
In everyone's life and in mine there
have been days that were happy, average,
and disappointing. The day that stands out
the most in my life is my eighth birthday
tMay 17, 195W. This was the day thatl
was going to become an American Citizen.
My mother and grandfather told rne
that this was the most wonderful present
anyone could receive. I didn't know, too
well, what that meant, but I know that I
was very proud and happy, even though I
would rather have had something with
which to play. What child of eight years
As I grow older I understand much
better what this means to me. In France
where I was born, and lived for five years
during Whorld War-Two, there was con-
tinous fighting and no one knew whether
he was safe, or was going to be killed at
any moment. So you see why I'm so happy
tobe in the United States, where everyone
is treated alike, everyone stands for the
same thing, and everyone has the op-
portunity to become what he or she wants.
If I could turn back the calendar to
May 17, 1950 and relive that day, I would
be too proud and too happy to become an 'l
American Citizen again, for I know the
real meaning much more clearly, now,
than when I was only a child of eight.

Autumn's gone, winter is near,
We will soon celebrate a happy New Year.
Playing in the snow and having much fun,
We can do this after school work is done.
Holidays will come and Holidays will go,
Soon school will be over, isn't that nice to know?
Spring will end, Summer will begin,
So we can start this poem all over again,
Read this over a couple of times,
And see if your opinion, is the same as mine.

You're sweet as honey
Light as dew
You're soft as a feather
Who are you?
You're truly wonderful to everyone
Because you bring them so much fun.
You bring the flowers bright and gay
You bring us joy in every day
You also bring the birds that sing.
Now I know who you are,

The moon is shining white,
He lives up in the sky.
He comes out only at night,
I sometimes wonder why,
For, in the morning, he is gone,
To rest and wait for night,
When once again, he will come,
To fill the sky with light.

A CHRISTMAS JING LE
Gaily colored ribbon
Lying on the floor,
Wrapping Christmas packages
15 never quite a chore.
Silver colored tinsel
Hanging on the tree,
Turkey in the kitchen,
For Mary, Sue, and me.
Hear the sleigh a-jingle,
Going through the snow.
"Christmas time is lots of fun,
Says everyone I know.

How did you spend it?
Did you go to camp
Dressed informally like a tramp?
Or did you stay at home and sweat?
Or did you have fun with friends you met?
Or did you work and earn some dough
Which you spent freely at the show?
Or did you save it like a miser
For hopes of spending some day wiser?
Did you go to the pool at times ?
And are you sick of our silly rhymes ?
Now here is one of my own
Let's not start to weep and moan,
Winter's coming as you know - -- .
This poem's about the frost and snow,
When summer goes and winter sets in
We'll have to face it with a grin.
When nights grow long and days grow short "-
47 K.6xcr700 .9512:
All of our parents always try,
To be very good to us,
Try not to get them angry,
And do not make a fuss.
Parents are so lovable,
They are so good and kind,
Don't expect them to be perfect,
For no one is, you'll find.
When your parents tell you something,
Do what they say to do,
Don't tell them that it isn't fair,
Make them proud of you.
All parents should be treated well,
You may be one some day, too,
Every parent does his best,
To bring happiness to you.
Elaine Goodman, 7-427
I'd like to be a parent,
If only for a day,
To show that sometimes parents,
Can be wrong in many ways.
It isn't that they don't love us,
Or try to be mean,
But they're often so oldafashioned,
It makes you want to scream.
For instance, we like music,
That has a little beat,
And we think Rock 8: Roll
Can sweep you off your feet,
But as you tip-toe over
To the record you have chose,
You are suddenly reminded,
That your father wants to doze.
In this and many other ways,
Our parents get our goats,
And yet as I mention this
I think I ought to note,
That without our parents
We would not be here today,
To point out all their errors,
And criticize their ways.
Randa Moscovitz, 9-304
NO CHANGES MADE
"Gee! I hope it turns out all right, "
whispered Joyce to herself as she hurried-
ly combed her hair.
She hated to admit it even to herself,
but she did hope that Mom and Dad wouldn't
act as they usually did at her parties.
Joyce had tried again and again to dis-
cuss the problem tac tfully with them, but
gosh! How are you going to tell your own
parents that you think they act much too
young for their age ? Couldn't they be
dignified like other parents ? Must they be
silly and foolish, constantly trying to act
like teenagers? How are you going to tell
your dad how silly it looks when he acts
like a fifteen-year old and dances with your
girl friends ?
Well, no matter how hard it was to
tell them, it had to be told in exac tly two
hours. She was not going through another
night of embarrasment!
Firmly and erectly, she walked into the
living room, where she stood looking at
them for a moment. They looked perfect-
ly normal now, Dad reading the paper,
Mom sewinga seam in her dress. Why did
they become teenage rebels at a party?
"Mom. . ..Dad could I talk to you a
Dadput downhis paper and Mom looked
"Well, here goes," thought Joyce, "It's
., . . it's about the party tonight, " she stam-
mered. "You're. . .You're not going to act
like you usually do at parties are you?"
"Whatdo you mean?" they both seemed
to ask with their eyes. Joyce decided to
blurt it out, "I mean you're not going to
go around telling those girls about what
you wore when you were our age, are you
Mom? In short you're not going to act one
third you age are you?"
Joyce looked at her parents' faces and
saw on them truly hurt expressions. Then
they looked at each other and almost in
unison said, "No, Joyce, no we won't."
"Well, " Joyce though as she served
the punch, "so far, so good. Mom and Dad
haven't said a word. I hated to hurt them
yso, but I had to. "
Just then her closest friend approac ed
her eagerly and quickly, with a question
mark written all over her face.
"What happened to your parents tonight,
Joyce?" she said.
"What do you mean? asked Joyce won-
deringly. "Well, they were always so much
fun, not like the other parents, but young
and lively. Tonight they look different.
What happened ?"
This hit Joyce like a bomb. "Oh. . .oh
nothing at all," Joyce quickly answered,
and in another lmoment she was near her
parents, explaining and apologizing. What
a fool she had been. She didn't want to
change her parents. They were great just
the way they were.
