PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR MR. ROBERT L. DUNCAN Physical Education is one of the most important phases of school life, and for the past twenty-six years Robert L. Duncan has headed this department as Director of Athletics. He is currently head coach of the track team and has also coached football and basketball. A native of Oconto, Wisconsin, Mr. Duncan received his B. S. degree in physical training from the University of Iowa in 1923. For three years he quarterbacked the football team there. Here he is very active in local affairs, including church and Y.M.C.A. work. In addition to his school work in physical education, Mr. Duncan has held important offices in related organizations. He has been both president and vicepresident of the New Jersey Association for Health and Physical Education and has also been a member of the National Football Rules Committee, the Union County Interscholastic Athletic Conference, and the New Jersey Interscholastic Athletic Association. Although Mr. Duncan must schedule all the sporting events of the high school and attend to mountains of clerical work, he finds time to teach personal living to boys and to instruct some gym classes. Liked and respected by all, he is looked to by many as a source of inspiration and guidance. A happy family life with his charming wife and two children who have attended Westfield schools from their earliest years has given him an exceptionally good background for wholesome advice and counsel. The Class of 1955 is proud to have the privilege of dedicating this yearbook to a fine man and a fine teacher, Robert L. Duncan.

IN MEMORIAM David Wright "// you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life. For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one. Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb."

The National Honor Society is an honorary organization designed to give recognition to junior and senior students who have achieved a position of high standing in their class in scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Members must rank in the upper twenty per cent of their class, and have received a passing grade on all examinations. Maximum membership is ten per cent of the class.

New members are selected by the faculty and announced at a special assembly in the spring. They are formally inducted at a ceremony and reception attended by faculty, old and new members, and parents. Miss Elisabeth Gromlich is the adviser, and this year's officers were President, George Holzwarth; Vice-President, Peter Tishler; Secretary, Sally Mitchell; and Treasurer, Martha Gerhart.

As an incentive for others to improve their scholastic standing, the National Honor Society offers cash prizes to two seniors whose standing has improved most from their sophomore to their senior year.

A much appreciated innovation this year was the gift of the National Honor Society pins by the Parent-Teachers Association.

STUDENT COUNCIL One representative or one alternate from each homeroom and four officers elected by the school comprise the governing body of the school which holds meetings about once a month. During the year the group sold school book covers and blue and white "pom-poms". Two dances, "The Kick-Off" and "The Mid-Winter Ball," sponsored by the council, were a great success. The latter had as its setting the interior of a ski lodge. An important service to the school was provision for two assemblies. One of these was a talk by Glenn Cunningham, world famous track star; the other was a student talent program. This year the Student Council also sent a representative to the Union County Student Council Conference.

Students submit ideas or suggestions either through their homeroom representatives or through the suggestion box located in the library. After the suggestion has been discussed before the council, a poster located in the library explains what has been done. This year's officers were Peter Pfaff, president; Dick Griggs, vice-president; Claire Minnick, secretary; and Nino Carnavale, treasurer. The Student Council was capably advised by Mr. Harold Thompson and Mr. Albert Bobal.

Every afternoon during the long months of winter, a brave and determined little group met in the inner recesses of 212 to attack the •monumental task of publishing the yearbook. First came the organizing of the staff and its committees. The members of the write-up committee were responsible for the senior section. Their task included arranging six senior pictures with a complimentary description of each person and an appropriate sketch on each page. Such items as the class will, senior superlatives, and class prophecy were the responsibility of the feature committee. The club editor saw to it that an article and picture of each school club appeared. The activities editor prepared and edited each student's list of activities which appears in the book. In

charge of designing the book was the layout committee which worked in close contact with the art committee. Every senior contributed to the herculean task of getting out the yearbook, but the principal responsibility fell upon the following: Jim Tindall, editor-in-chief; Marnie Sparre, assistant editor; Elise Phillips, club editor; Barbara Pierson and Carol Hoyerman, typing editors; Judie Botts, senior write-up editor; Ken Cole and Dave Rochat, sports editors; Marcia Kenney and Barbara Denney, lay-out editors; Darcy Cregar, art editor; Pat Park, activities editor; Jane Huber, girls' sports editor; Connie Walsh and Julie Windham, feature editor; and Pete Tishler, business manager.

WEATHER VANE ANNUAL 62

WESTFIELD HI'S EYE Because of increased costs, the Westfield Hi's Eye this year changed from letterpress to offset printing. This change enabled the staff to publish fifteen issues in contrast to the nine of the previous year and to include many more pictures of student activities. The editorial staff of the Hi's Eye, ably advised by Bernard Thomas, included Patsy Miller, editor; Jim Tindall, sports editor; Judie Botts, feature editor; Marnie Sparre, news editor; Sally Mitchell, publications editor; and Ken Cole, Marie Gilson, Dave Weed and Joyce Bergsland, reporters. Art work for the paper was drawn by Darcy Cregar and photographs were taken by Bob

Beckett, Frank Magelhaes, and Bob Cassidy. Heading the business staff, supervised by Andrew Palencar, was Jane Huber, business manager, assisted by Beverly Baldwin and Addison Slocum. Serving as office manager was Margie Savoye and as circulation manager, Rosetta Mannino. Among the popular features innovated this year were the "Senioralities" column and the "Scramble Schools" contest for Hi's Eye readers. Members of the staff again attended the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Conference and the New Jersey Scholastic Press Association Conference where they received valuable criticism and new ideas.

FORUM CLUB The Forum Club is composed of students who have an interest in current events and a desire to learn more about current situations. This club provides ample opportunity for arguing for those who find it stimulating. The objects of the club are to develop greater thinking about current events and to learn to speak in defense of our own views in public. The meetings are conducted in the homes of members on the third Thursday evening of every month. The meetings are carried out according to parliamentary procedure, and each debate is organized and prepared by volunteers or by members who are asked to debate. One 64

of the most disputed subjects debated on was "Is Peaceful Co-Existence with Russia Possible?" Besides the regular meetings, the club participated in the Union County Forum. Our club also sent representatives to appear in a debate on television. Another highlight of the club's activities was an assembly to which we invited the Princeton Debating Team to debate against members of the club. Mr. Miller was the adviser, and the officers were: President, Jim Tindall; Vice-President, George Holzwarth; Secretary, Marcia Kenney; and Treasurer, Bill Wyman.

Although the staff is hampered by lack of funds, the single issue of the school magazine continues to mirror literary and artistic talent. Contributions come both from class assignment and from individual effort. Talented staff artists illustrate the stories, provide various types of artistic embellishment, and design colorful covers. Because of similarity of interests the staff joined the Writer's Club in a social meeting. Officers were Gordon Smith, editor-in-chief; Bob Gaido, business manager; Liz Topham, literary editor; Carol Hoppin, poetry editor; and Barbara Kupp, art editor.

This small club consists of a group convinced that the pen is mightier than the sword. Almost any thing—outer space, inner turmoil, or sudden beauty —provides subject matter for stories, essays, and poems that members read and criticize at the meetings, held regularly in the apartment living room and occasionally in private homes. Well-known writers such as Elizabeth Inskip Wye, Charlotte Montgomery, and Gerald Raftery have addressed the club this year. The officers are Jim Tindall, president; Ginnie Bach, vice-president; Liz Topham, secretary; and Peggy Smyers, treasurer. 65

The ideal of the Literary Club is to encourage and enrich the student's reading through group discussion of classic and current literature. Discussions are centered around the works of one author or one period or type of literature. Features of this year's activities were a book recognition contest and the annual trip to New York City to see a Broadway show. In the spring the club attended a matinee performance of "Witness To The Prosecution." Meetings are held monthly in members' homes under the guidance of Miss Margaret Dietrich of the English department. The club of officers were President, Dan Reese; Vice-President, Bruce Edwards; Secretary, Sally Mitchell; and Treasurer, Bill Wyman.

The students show all moving pictures for classroom work, clubs, assemblies, and other groups. About 165 films are shown yearly. The club also operates the lighting panel for assemblies and for all plays given in the auditorium.

The two clubs held a joint meeting at Christmastime with the theme "Christmas in Many Lands." Other worthwhile programs presented by the Junior Literary Club included a dramatization of The Caine Mutiny and a meeting devoted to Sherlock Holmes and The Baker Street Irregulars, with Mr. Bliss Austin reading his own published story. The presiding officers of the Junior Literary Club were President, Alden Hess; Vice-President, Nancy Gordon; Secretary, Susie Heck; and Treasurer, Paul Tokar.

The club gives its members an opportunity to become acquainted with people and customs in Spanish speaking countries. Club activities include singing Spanish songs, playing games in Spanish, seeing movies, hearing speakers, and taking the annual trip to New York, which features Spanish food, a Spanish movie, and a visit to the Hispanic Museum. The club was advised by Mr. La Costa and Mr. Bunting. Its officers were President, Doreen Smith; Vice-President, Barbara Sturges; Secretary, Grace Smith; and Treasurer, Peg Tibbets.

Through the many activities of the club, members develop their knowledge of French and learn about French people by their correspondance with students in France. Mr. Gesner advises this group of sixty students. 68

LATIN CLUB The Latin Club enables its members to supplement their knowledge of the language in an enjoyable way. On account of the popularity of the club it was necessary to limit the membership to students currently taking Latin. Monthly meetings are devoted to many activities enabling members to utilize their knowledge of the language through games, contests, singing, quiz programs, et cetera. This lighter side of things coupled with an increased knowledge of Latin and of the Roman people gained through trips, films, and informative programs gives the members a wealth of supplementary material as well as greater understanding of the language they are studying. For the big trip of the year the club attended the Annual Convention of the New Jersey Junior Classical League which was held in the Trenton High School on April 22.

Again this year, during the football season, the band marched for all of the football sames. At the end of the season, they proceeded from the "great out-of-doors" of the gridiron to the "stuffy in-doors", mainly room 29—band room. It was there they rehearsed for their annual Winter Concert containing such numbers as "Themes for Scheherazade" and "Night Beat". After the Winter Concert, a small, select group of musicians formed the W.H.S. Swing Band. They were Nelson Coffman on drums, Pete Tishler on bass, Norland Berk on piano, Peter Boor, Paul Neuer, and Dick Griggs on trumpet, John Habley and George Butterfield on trombone and Cliff Robison, Reese Helmondollar, Bill Fullard, Dick Reynolds, and Don Bowlin on sax. They played for a school assembly and have plans for the "Pops Concert". Speaking of the "Pops Concert", the band will play such numbers as "William Tell Overture", "Lady of Spain", "Midnight in Paris", and many others. The band also performed for such occasions as the annual Halloween Parade, assemblies, and the Memorial Day Parade.

This year the orchestra performed during the Midwinter Band Concert as an added feature. In addition to just attending classes and performing when required, members were encouraged to learn new instruments or to form their own organizations such as the Square Dance Band. This year four orchestra members — Ruth Dahlstrom, Mike Tokar, Norland Berk and Dan Reese — performed in the All-State Orchestra; and three members — Norland Berk, Mike Tokar and Dan Reese — were selected for the All-Eastern Orchestra in Boston. The elected officers of the Orchestra were Norland Berk, President; Charles Beckett, Vice-President; Kris Miller, Secretary.

Next they defeated Roselle Park and powerful Columbia, 13-6 and 28-7. Then on a muddy field Westfield slipped to victory, 19-0, over Bound Brook.

BASKETBALL In his third year at Westfield, Coach John Lay has compiled the best record a Westfield basketball team has had in fourteen years. The Blue Devils, led by Co-captains Bob Ericsson and Don Feeley and returning lettermen Bob List and Dick Mootz, had a 16-6 over-all record, including a streak of twelve wins in a row. The highlights of the season included a 59-39 win over Regional, a 69-57 win over Linden, and a 72-71 win over powerful Cranford. Don Feeley's 31-point effort in this thriller was one of the best performances of the year. The Devils were seeded second in the County tournament but were upset in a heart-breaker by St. Patrick's. In the State tournament Westfield went to the Semi-Finals before being beaten by Linden, 62-52. Next year's team will be led by the only returning letterman, Ferdy Shoemaker.

Coach Noel Taylor is expecting a fine baseball season this year. The team is lacking depth in the pitching chores, with Bob List as the only pitcher with varsity experience. Johnny Morris and Bruce Grosvenor, neither with too much experience, will back him up. Captain Nino Carnevale will guide the team from his catching position. Comprising two-thirds of the outfield will be Leo Brown and Sonny Peterson. The infield in still undecided, only "Coke" Marvosa at shortstop being assured of a starting berth. Don Wright, Evan Williams and Don Feeley are all in the running for a position. When the pitching problem is solved, Westfield is assured of having a good season.

Paced by Captain Don Feeley and returning letterman George Holzwarth, the team suffered six defeats. Failing to win honors in either the Union County Meet or the Group II and III State Championships, the team nevertheless outscored many of the teams against which it competed.

CLASS PROPHECY February, 1970 Last night was the opening of BETTY DAY'S new comedy, "Life with Father". Going to the theater in our air conditioned Cadillac, bought from JOE CAMBRIA and driven by our chauffeur, HERB ECKERT, we passed over the HOLZWARTH-REESE Skyway. Entering onto the main thoroughfare, we passed such shops as BOB KELSO's lingerie shop, DICK BILDEN'S jewelry shop, and the new R.R.&C. grocery store owned by TOM RATCLIFFE, JOE ROEDIGER, and CHARLES CRISSEY. GEORGE BUCHANAN was selling brownies in BARBARA DEET'S bakery. EVAN WILLIAMS was seen strolling up the avenue sporting the newest styles in men's haircuts in the newest shade of HOGAN red, while VINCENT NAPOLITANO, humming the latest in bop music, written by TEX COFFMAN, was cleaning the sidewalk in front of NINO CARNEVALE and BOB GARDNER'S spudnut shop. We almost drove into a sign, startled by ERNESTINE KEET'S latest creations, worn by fashion plates BAILY HAINES, BARBARA DENNEY, BARBARA PIERSON, NANCY SMITH, ANNE BLACKBURN, and MARGARET ELLIS. We were delayed slightly by an accident. Doctors WYMAN and TISHLER and nurses HEATON, LENSKOLD, TIBBETS, DAY and MOWEN rushed to the scene. After a few minutes, Officer O'KEEFE got traffic moving again, and we arrived at the theater, where we bought tickets from ANNE PRATO and PAULINE RUFFINI. Starring in this hilarious comedy of BOB TORGESEN'S childhood days is ED TENNEY as Father, CONNIE WALSH as Mother, and JUDIE BOTTS' four read-headed boys as the sons. The premiere was a smashing success with such personalities attending as BOB ERICSSON and DON FEELEY, the famous basketball players, and HARRY WIDMER, ART HORNER, JOE CAMBRIA, and BOB LIST, All-American football players, and the new winners of the mixed doubles at Forest Hills, BILL FULLARD and BARBARA STURGES. Arriving in their ski pants from a slide down the nearest hill were FAY MARTIN, BARBARA SEAMAN, and JULIE WINDHAM. M.C. for the evening was JIM TINDALL, sports announcer. The evening was highlighted by the arrival of the 100-meter free style record holder, ROGER ANDERSON, the sailboat enthusiast, LEIGHTON MILLER, and the new golf "champ", BARRY MAXWELL. Upon the arrival of the glamorous screen star

ANN GILCHRIST, the mob rushed her for autographs; among the crowd were PAT BRINDLE, BARBARA HULL, MARCIA ROYCE, and BETSY BARDSLEY. BOB BECKETT and FRANK MAGALHAES frantically clicked their cameras. Another thrill for the autograph seekers was the arrival of handsome screen actor KEN COLE with his agent MARILYN SLIFER on his arm. There was a commotion when HERB WRIGHT, the peanut vender, could not be heard over the shrieks of CAROL SCHWARTZ, selling lemonade. Other screen stars who attended were JOHN BARLAS, sixth cousin of the late Edward G. Robinson, and MARILYN COOK, new starlet, who is understudy for Jeanne Crain. Science was represented by ROBERT STUART, inventor of the new W.H.S. bomb, with his assistants ARTHUR RICHIE and RICHARD THURN. Even the farmers heard about it, farmer STIRRUP being there in full array. The opening was honored by the first woman president, MARTHA GERHART, and her secretary, JANE HUBER, with members of the cabinet SUSAN YODER, secretary of war, trying to make peace between TED SANDQUIST and NINA SALO, and DAVE ROCHAT, secretary of the treasury, who was the key figure in closing in on the international playboy tax evader team, BRUCE EDWARDS and BUCKY HARRIS. We took our seats, and the orchestra, conducted by MIKE TOKAR, struck its first note. PETER BOOR was on the trumpet; JOHN HABLEY, the famous "Caravan" player from way back, on the trombone, with NORLAND BERK on the piano. The stage set was beautifully done by DARCY CREAGAR, DORIS VOGELER and JUDY BICKETT, with lighting by DAVE ANDREASSEN and BOB SMITH, sound by JACK STIER, and makeup by CONNIE FOX. Flowers for the set were provided by EDDY WILLIAMS, florist. At the opening of the curtain there was a contagious laugh let out from ELISE PHILLIPS, which sent her cohorts, SANDY FREEMAN, CAROLINE STEWART, DOTTIE HORNUNG, MARY LOU WOLFGANG, and MARCIA KATH, into mild hysteria. In the early editions of the papers the critics, MARNIE SPARRE, BOB CASSIDY, and MARCIA KENNEY, gave the production good notices, and all in all, fun was had by everyone.
