Mmayt ?mm 011! Principal
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.
