— Luca Delia Robbi 



,M21)1) 



l^n 1)1 



One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: 
but the earth abideth forever. 

— Ecclesiastes 1 :4 



Where have we come from? Where are we go- 
ing to? Where are we now? These are the ques- 
tions that man has asked himself from time imme- 
morial, and will continue to ask himself indefi- 
nitely. Man often wonders about himself, about 
his childhood. . . . 

When he was young, and full of dreams. When 
his world consisted of his daddy and mommy and 
nanny and favorite toy. When the four comers 
of the earth were bounded by his playpen. When 
the ceiling was the sky and a picture book reality. 
When Humpty Dumpty really fell off the wall and 
when Kaptain Kangaroo was his best friend. 

And suddenly, the world of dreams had 
ended. . . . 

— • Dov Zakheim

SCHOOL 




The Administration has ably carried out its 
position in student-faculty relations by instilling a 
feeling of mutual respect among students and 
teachers alike. Under the leadership of Rabbi 
Abraham N. Zuroff, recently appointed super- 
visor of all four Yeshiva University High Schools, 
YUHSB has reached new heights in scholastic 
achievement. With the aid of Mr. Samuel Levine, 
Executive Director of YUHS, the drive to erect 
the new Yeshiva High School complex went into 
first gear with the moving of Brooklyn Central to 
Avenue M and East 14th Street. The boys will 
follow in the near future.

Under the guidance and instruction of our 
Talmudic Faculty, each student leaves YUHSB 
with a basic knowledge of his Jewish heritage and 
an appetite whetted for continued studies in Tal- 
mud as well as Jewish law and lore. Each Rebbe 
offers his own distinct approach to the study of 
our multifaceted Torah. Their dedication and 
sincerity have acted as a guiding light to the life- 
long path of a Torah-true Jew. It is only through 
such unswerving dedication that the trend toward 
Jewish secularization and assimilation has been 
reversed.

RABBI SHEBSHAIEVITZ 



"May his soul be bound in the bonds of the living: 



The Class of 1966 mourns the loss of a great 
Talmid Cochum and rebbe. His untimely p'tira 
indeed left its mark. The gap left by Rabbi Sheb- 
shaievitz can never be filled, as a man of distinct 
quality, ahavas Torah, yiras shomayim and great 
teaching ability can never really be replaced. The 
last class he taught was in 1963-64 and he was 
then forced to leave after Pesach because of ill- 
ness. The class deemed that one of Rabbi Sheb- 
shaievitz's stature should grace our Elchanite as 
an inspiration and as an example of what a true 
Torah Jew should and can be. A student of the 
renowned Mirrer Yeshiva, he came to America 
by way of China and Japan after the Nazi holo- 
caust, and upon arriving, immediately set out on 
the road of chinuch, which is the basis of all Juda- 
ism. In his eighteen years as a revered rebbe in 
YUHSB, Rabbi Shebshaievitz instilled his ideals 
in every student he taught. In his own quiet and 
gentle way, he succeeded in imparting Torah to 
his pupils just as he, himself had received it from 
the aedolei Torah who were his rebbaim.

Mr. Lowell Sanders 
American History, Economics 



The world today is both complex and enigmatic. 
In a seven term sequence of Geography, World 
Histoiy, American History, and Economics, it is 
the task of the Social Studies Department to trace 
these complexities and perlexities back to their 
sources in history, hundreds, even thousands of 
years ago, and relate past with present, there with 
here, then with now. The fruits of their efforts 
are evident not only in our Regents marks, but 
also, and far more important, in our understand- 
ing of the world around us.

Mr. Alvin Baron 



Stressing the ever-present need for communica- 
tion between men, the Enghsh mentors of YUHSB 
strove to convey to us the knowledge of both the 
spoken and written word. In addition to the tra- 
ditional vocabularly and usage, the beauty of 
literature, both American and English, was 
brought to us in this four year course and was 
always enhanced by extensive discussion and eval- 
uation of what was read. Unique and interesting 
teaching methods, such as movies and student 
dramatization, have instilled in us a love of our 
language that should last a lifetime.

Mathematics 




Mr. Morris Septimus 



In this Age of Computers the need for mathe- 
matics becomes more and more evident. In addi- 
tion to the required three year sequence of Ele- 
mentary Algebra, Geometry, and Eleventh Year 
Mathematics, we are also permitted to elect Ad- 
vanced Algebra and Calculus in our Senior year. 
Always stressing the underlying principles behind 
the formulas we learned, our highly competent 
Mathematics Department did much to give us a 
deep understanding of what we learned as well 
as a broad knowledsre of it.

Biology 




Although only General Science and Biology are 
required, the vast majority of the students avail 
themselves of the highly popular and enlightening 
elective Chemistry and Physics courses. Under the 
tutelage of our expert Scieice stafT in both the 
classroom and laboratory, we have acquired a 
broad vista of knowledge in many things rang- 
ing from the infinitesimal molecule, to the infinite 
universe, to the most complex of all things, man 
himself.

As nations become increasingly dependent upon 
one another, a facility in foreign languages be- 
comes absolutely essential. We are fortunate, in- 
deed, to have the expert tutelage of Monsieur 
Marshal. We can say without hesitation that we 
have one of the most competent French depart- 
ments in the United States. The required four 
year course of Hebrew studies not only increases 
our proficiency in our historical tongue, but also 
opens up the \vorld of Hebraic culture to us.

The position of the Minors Department is 
unique among the Faculty', for these courses, above 
ters, go beyond mere knowledge of the sub- 
^^ 'he finer points of life taught to us in the 
.■rt and Music classes, the need for physical fitness 
brought across in the Physical Education course, 
and the mature attitude a driver must have, as 
taught to us in Driver's Education, are things 
that all of us will appreciate in later life.

Staff 




Mrs. Yetta Rosenman, who believed in temper- 
ing justice with mercy when distributing admits, 
performed the Herculean task of keeping all our 
college records in order. Assisting her and man- 
aging the book room and mimeograph machine, 
was Nisson Berlin, a YUHSB alumnus who 
made good. Mrs. Sarah Shapiro, mistress of the 
switchboard, kept the financial records of our 
school in order while sei-ving as secretary in the 
Office of the Bursar.

The Guidance Department, under the auspices 
of Rabbi Kanatopsky and Mr. Strum, played an 
important role in the life of each student of 
\TJHSB. Not only did it assist us with any per- 
sonal or academic problems we may have had, but 
also, it helped us in our choice of college and in 
this way steered us toward the right course in later 
life.

noble guardians of our health.

'David" 

— Michelannelo 



^rU) 



He was a young man and his horizons had 
broadened. There was school and there were 
grades. There was competition and jealousy and 
friends and love. There were reading and writing 
and speaking and the forming of opinions. There 
were girls and a social life and fun and dances. 
There were camps and summer jobs, and drafts 
and colleges — more study, more work, more grades 
and more discussion. Finally there was a degree, 
and a girl, and a career and the beginning of a 
new life. . . .

Chemical Engineering is the ambition 
of one of YUHSB's most promising 
students. Quick and agile, he was an 
asset to his class intramurally. His 
keen mind, which earned him berths 
on Arista, Intramural High School

est shiur, should surely help him at 
Brooklyn, next Fall.

Yeshiva life, heading the Y.O.C. and 
Kashruth committees in addition to 
spending a year and a half in Rabbi 
Yogel's shuir. An avid Yugar fan, 
he was editor of the publication of

An RJJ emissary to YUHSB, Mike ran 
the gamut from R. Drillman to Club 
204. A highly successful button 
pusher, our Hungarian revolutionary 
amazed us with his ken of highly di- 
versified subjects. An admirable math 
student, Michael also was superb in 
his knowledge of mythology in Bob's 
class. Well read and well versed, Mike 
will major in Physics Uptown at YU.

A strong advocate of the "better late

though he never got an excused ad-

A.N.Z. meets A.N.Z. 

George: Is 6 rows of 5 each too much to ask from 31 of 

you? 

Doc: ShaivB'ni. 

Warman : I already took one this morning. 

"Hey look, isn't that Stan Laurel's partner?" 

John leaves and takes his little friends with him. 

Kunkes predicts that Russia's Mr. K. will lose his job by 

the end of the year. A.N.Z. predicts that Y.U.H.S.B.'s Mr. 

K will lose his job by the end of the year. 

Royal Order of the Orkydirkle is formed. Wilon overhears 

and is given token position — Court Jester! He was later 

elevated by holy ghost. 

Something walks into our Math Class looking and smelling 

like a herring wearing pajamas. 

George : Life is like a glass of tea. 

Student: Why is that? 

George: How should I know? I'm not a philosopher. 

Tragedy strikes — Doc accidentally catches his tie in his 

shoe laces, sits down, and breaks his nose with his feet. 

Dunetz replaces George (in class, but not in our hearts.) 

Morse: O.K. you half-wits. Line up in alphabetical order 

according to height. 

Some of us hand in homeworks to George folded in half. 

George: It's not fair! Why should I unfold your papers? 

Rabinowitz fakes out seismograph experiment for four 

days. 

Benzon fakes report on dinosaurs. Tells Dunetz he has to 

go home to bring in his tyranosaurus rex. 

Dunetz: You don't e.xpect me to believe that you have a 

tyranosaurus rex at home, do you? 

Dick: You're right. Actually it's a brontosaurus. 

Dunetz: Well, that's different. Bring it in tomorrow. 

George brings in jar of mercury for the class to inspect. We 



file around and around. Then we file around some more 
until everyone has seen the mercuiy at least five times. The 
bell rings, but George promises is that he'll bring the mer- 
cury in again the next day so that everyone can get a 
chance. 

Monheit: Newton's discovery was great because until then 
apples fell up. 

Gold: No Shapiro, you can't do a book report on the 
Carpetbaggers. 

Kunkes: The grass is as tall as an elephant's . . . no . . . 
the grass is as high as an elephant's eye. That's better. 
George brings in a can with unknown contents. 
George: Honest fellows . . . it's dehydrated water! Look, 
here are the directions: Pour contents into one gallon of 
water, stir, chill, and serve ! 

Ollie: Levine, leave the room and close the window behind 
you. 

George : Jupiter has a revolution every twelve years. 
Mexico has one every six months. 

"YU Freshies are Great" is second only to the Topics and 
the Bulletin, but fails to win C.S.P.A. award. 
We meet "Handsome Bob." "Da first ting we gonna learn 
in dis course is gramma." 
"Mr. Gelman, can you do this problem?'" 
Mr. G — "I'm sure I can. Next question." 
George Davidson waits two weeks to start Gen. Sci. course 
until someone remembers to bring a can. Course delayed 
another two months until everyone brings in crushed can 
experiment. Fiendish machination to smuggle "Excellent" 
stamps foiled as George threatens to buy one with only 
one "L." 

Question on George's test; "The villi are like: a) Grand 
Central Station when both doors are open; b) a can about 
to be crushed; c) a Chock full o' Nuts restaurant; d) all 
of these. Ans. — (d) 

Student: "Why are we spending so much time on ni- 
trates?" 

George: "'Cause they're cheaper than day rates." 
Bob: "When Mr. Strum comes in, if ya know somtin', 
raise your left hand, and if ya don't, raise your right hand." 
Bob astounds everyone when he comes to school wearing 
a tie less than 5" wide and by writing the word SHAM 
on the board all in the same period. We think the 
word he wrote was rather appropriate, don't you?) 
Morse proctors Gen. Sci. final. Final renamed "forum."

in my desk . . . Hey ! Where'd everybody go . . . ! ! ! ! 

All in all, the administration was very helpful. It is pitch 

black and a tall ominous figure enters the room . . . 

ANZ: Mr. Rosenman. Excuse me. The lights don't work. 

ANZ: Mr. Zelenetz, Mr, Davies, what are you doing; 

running around; the halls. Fifth period has begun; you 

should be in class.

drinking Beer before you can eat beer pretzels? 

Yoc: Truly dear boy. What the hell do us birds give a 

damn?!

ACTIVITIES

The General Organization has the mammoth 
responsibility of coordinating the numerous extra- 
curricular activities in YUHSB. Representatives 
from every class in the school meet bimonthly at 
Student Council meetings to decide vital issues 
pertaining to student activities. In addition to the 
regular meetings, emergency meetings are held on 
special occasions when need warranted their being 
held. 

The Council raised money largely through the 
sale of season's passes to basketball games, through 
admissions to home games, and by ordering the 
busses which transported students to and from 
Yugar away games. The funds thus raised were, 
for the most part, appropriated for use by the 
numerous student activities. The surplus funds 
were given to the Elchanite.

tion to this assembly, there were the annual open 
G.O. meeting, a basketball rally, numerous de- 
bates, and High School Bowl meets. 

Spring Term President Zelenetz has to his credit 
the inception of the Movie and Record Commis- 
sions. The former provided the student body and 
the faculty with many films which were both edu- 
cational and entertaining in nature. The latter 
gave the students an opportunity to purchase 
records at greatly reduced prices. 

Mr. Joseph Strum. Advisor to the Student Coun- 
cil, attended every meeting and was invaluable

ing to keep the meetings running smoothly.

One of the most active student organizations 
in the school is the Yeshiva Organization Com- 
mission. Under the leadership of this year's heads, 
Michael Shmidman and Heshy Pincus, the Y.O.C. 
successfully coordinated all the religious activities 
of the Yeshiva. Included in its program are the 
Minyan, Mishmar, and the Kashruth Commis- 
sion. 

The Minyan, led by adviser Rabbi Faivushevitz, 
H. Pincus, M. Geduld, and E. Singer, is attended 
by sixty boys each morning. After the davening, 
breakfast is served by the Elchanite concession. 
Rabbi Cohen, with the assistance of A. Birnbaum 
officiates at the Mishmar, where students are given 
a chance to review their Talmud lessons every 
Thursday evening. 

An important function of the Y.O.C. is the 
Kashruth Commission. Headed by M. Shmidman 
and L. Karp, the commission makes sure that all 
foods sold in the Yeshiva are strictly kosher. Let- 
ters are sent periodically to the producers of these 
products to see that they comply with the highest 
standards of Kashruth. Material obtained from 
the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations is 
distributed to the student bodg. 

Tzedakah plays a big part in YOC activities. 
This year's YU charity drive was an unprecedented 
success, raising over $1000 for worthy chraities. 
Once again, the YOC undertook the sale of 
matzoh products for Passover. The Pesach Provi- 
sions Committee, headed by B. Nusbacher, dis- 
tributed the supplies to the student body.

Seeking to live up to its name as "the best," 
YUHSB's branch of the National Honor Society, 
embarked upon an extensive program to better 
YUHSB. Book reports and Talmudic disserta- 
tions were periodically placed on its newly ac- 
quired bulletin board. In addition to the two 
induction assemblies, where underclassmen be- 
came acquainted with the ideals of Arista, there 
was also an Arista sponsored career speech given 
to the seniors, which hopefully helped them to 
make the important choice between colleges. Arista 
members continued to help their fellow students 
with their studies and strove always to maintain 
academic excellence throughout YUHSB.

The Topics 




Left to right. Top row: Richard Zelenetz, Jack Lebewohl, Ira Widman, 
Eli Shapiro, Irwin Mansdorf. Bottom row: David Levine, Alan Zelenetz. 



Tlie Topics, YUHSB 's month- 
ly newspaper, continued in its 
noble tradition as one of YUH- 
SB 's oldest and finest publica- 
tions and maintained its posi- 
tion of literary exeellance under 
the expert leadership of Dov 
Zakheim. Jay C4runfeld's ever- 
popular feature articles con- 
tinued to be favorites among the 
student body, while Sports 
Slunts, by Steve Weinstock, gave 
us a clear over-all picture of 
events around the lY. The pho- 
tography of Dave Levine and 
Neil Liest livened up every is- 
sue with numerous action shots 
and candids. Poet Laiireate Lip- 
sehitz's poetry and Alan Zelen- 
etz 's cartoons rounded out every 
issue making the Topics truly 
excellent in every way. The 
Orkydirkle, in the'true tradition 
of Purim issues, split many sides 
with its humorous treatment of 
the school. On a more sei'ious 
note, wei'e the timely editorials 
dealing both with YUHSB and 
with the Jewish community as a 



whole. 

Not only did the Topics come 
out five times, more than it ever 
did for the last three years, but 
it also published two six page 
issues, a feat unprecedented in 
Yl'HSB history. 

The Topics Poll was revised 
this year to cover issues never 



touched in previous polls and 
to eliminate some of the areas 
which did not produce informa- 
tive results in past years. For 
the first time, the students were 
polled on specific information. 
They were asked to identify va- 
rious prominent people in di- 
versified fields, such as Andy 
Warhol, Doctor Rock, and Ru- 
dolf Nuriyev. The opinion ques- 
tions were expanded to include 
many controversial topics such 
as narcotics, smoking, Vietnam, 
and the voting age. The tradi- 
tional ' ' Favorite Teacher ' ' ques- 
tions appeared again, although 
such questions as, "How to im- 
prove the school," were not in- 
cluded as the responses were 
chaotic last year. The responses 
to the revised poll were infor- 
mative, and it is hoped that the 
format innovated in this year's 
poll will be continued.

Quality and quantity were the trademarks of 
YUHSB's minor publications. Subject matter 
ranged from languages and literature to math and 
mussar. 

The ATOM, magazine of modern science, pre- 
sented scientific problems and essays. 

The world of numbers was explored in the 
CORROLARY, the paper for the mathematics 
minded. 

The DIALECT specialized in languages. Essays 
were in Hebrew, English, and French. 

FOCUS was a topical publication, pushing for 
a rebirth of school spirit. It spotlighted on a dif- 
ferent topic each issue. 

YOC positions on various issues were stated in 
HAKOL. Divrai torah and mussar were also 
featured. 

Creative writing filled the pages of the 
REVIEW, YUHS's literary magazine. Its excellent 



PUBLICATIONS 



essays were enjoyed by the entire student body. 

Articles of Jewish interest written in both 
Hebrew and English filled the SIFRIYON. 

The YUGAR concentrated on basketball. Prob- 
ably the most circulated periodical, the YUGAR 
was given out free at Varsity home games.

Under the leadership of Faculty Advisor Mr. 
R. E. Bassel, Supervisor Bruce Fader and Heads 
Ira Newman and Jack Warman, the English 
Library has expanded its resources more this year 
than any other year in the past. 

Among the outstanding achievements of the 
year were the receiving and processing of more 
than 400 new volumes, the institution of two en- 
tirely new squads, a magazine squad to correlate 
all the periodical material and a maintenance 
squad to repair damaged books. New squads 
have realized their expected goals and have firmly 
emplanted themselves in the library organiza- 
tion. The circulating of over 1,000 volumes among 
the student body was a shining example of school 
service. 

The English Library is the school's largest em- 
ployer, having nearly forty upper and lower class- 
men working on its six squads during the school 
year.

Under the organizational skill of Rabbi Joseph 
Epstein, the Hebrew Library has greatly expanded 
from its humble beginnings to what is now a five 
thousand volume collection. 

Now in its fifteenth year of existence, the 
library's principle purpose is to supply the Roshei 
Yeshiva with reference works in order to supple- 
ment their shiurim. It, of course, also caters to 
individual student's needs through its circulation 
department. Ably led by Harry Weissman and 
Jacob Rand, the library attained new heights as 
an institution for the promotion of learning in 
our school.

The class of '66 is proud that it maintained the 
fine tradition of its predecessors. Both its Chanu- 
kah and Purim Chagigot delighted the student 
body with their witty and often satirical humor. 
Moving away from the trite and hackneyed 
themes of school life, the writers succeeded in 
their attempt to spoof many erstwhile institutions 
such as "Batman" and "Jungle Jim". Under the 
leadership of heads D. Davies, M. Waldoks, and J. 
Grunfeld and assistant head A. Zelenetz, the two 
Chagigot this year surpassed many of previous 
years in entertainment and humor. 






The Chanuka Chagiga began with an inspiring 
message from Rabbi ANZ, was followed by songs 
from the glee club, and a comedy monologue by 
H. Baumgarten. The band, under the leadership 
of A. D. Davies, A. Zelenetz and J. Grunfeld, was 
a huge success at both chagigot. They played 
many popular songs and delighted the audience. 
The highlight of the night, following the senior 
songs, was the skit "Jungle Jim Goes Hawaiian" 
and described the whole purpose of YUHSB — 
"getting students to go to YU." All decorating 
and props were created by the students under the 
leadership of Mike Freidman. 

The Purim Chagiga followed with the same

enthusiasm. This time Rabbi Bomzer started the 
evening with a spiritual message, and was followed 
by the seniors' pride, Sam Lifshitz, who gave a 
rendition of his own poetry. Together with the 
glee club and the band, which was at its best, 
the writers offered an uproariously humorous skit 
satirizing the popular Batman T.V. series. The 
Purim Chagiga amid raves and cheers ended the 
entertainment for the year. 





Left to right: Paul Davies, John Brand, George Zeleneiz, Ringo

This year YUHSB again played an integral part 
in the I.Y. Under the leadership of Moishe Wal- 
doks and Jay Grunfeld, YUHSB was ably repre- 
sented in the many I.Y. meetings, as well as in 
the skirmishes with the administration. One last- 
ing effect of this year's YUHSB affiliation is the 
acquisition of a new status, non-paying member. 
This meant that YUHSB would participate in all 
scheduled events but not expend any funds to the 
student run council. The other Yeshivas partici- 
pating in the activities are Flatbush, YUHSM, 
Ramaz, HILI, YCQ, and RJJ, an amalgamation 
to be proud of. 




Left to right: Senior representative Morris Waldoks, Junior repre- 
sentative William Schechter, Senior representative Jay Grunfeld. 



In addition to a well rounded program, an 
lY newspaper was published and distributed to 
member-schools. An lY essay contest was also 
held and prizes were awarded. YUHSB and the 
Class of 1966 should be proud of the teams and 
captains nobly participating in all phases of I.Y. 
competitions.

High School Bowl Managers, Left to right, Fall Term: David 
Levine. Spring Term: Eli Shapiro. 



-his year has witnessed another tremendous 
rise in the popularity of High School Bowling, 
both on the varsity and intramural level. The 
intramural H.S. Bowl games, ably set up by Fall 
Team High School Bowl Manager D. Levine and 
Spring Term High School Manager E. Shapiro, 
using the questions formulated by the Varsity 
Team, has attracted more interest than any other 
school activity except basketball. 

The Varsity Team, which for the first time has 
been run on a rotation basis, has lived up to ex- 
pectations and has completed the most successful 
season in the team's history, scoring victories 
against HILI, RJJ, MTA, and defeated by Flat- 
bush and HILI. As this article goes to press the 
team is tied for first. The high point in the sea- 
son was reached when the team defeated the 
seemingly unbeatable faculty team, which had 
defeated last year's Varsity. 

Special praise is due for J. Flamholz who both 
in attitude and knowledge has been a tremendous 
asset to the team. Flamholz, along with L. Karp, 
will captain next year's team and there is every 
reason to believe that they will lead the team to 
even greater heights.

Due to the tireless efforts of Debating Managers 
David Kaufman and Stuart Francis, YUHSB in- 
tramural debating enjoyed an unusual amount of 
popularity. Interesting topics and efficient man- 
agement overcame the usual apathy that had 
shrouded our debating program in recent years. 




Debating 



Even the normally lackadaisical seniors partici- 
pated, and helped make this a season of few for-, 
feits. 

The four grades are divided into the junior and 
senior divisions. The round-robin schedule even- 
tually leads to a playofT between the two divisions, 
before an assembly. This year, the class debating 
format was revised to include a question period by 
the audience. 

The debating program also included Varsity 
and Junior Varsity teams that competed with 
other schools in the Inter Yeshiva League. As a 
recent innovation, the members of the Varsity 
elect a cajDtain to take care of interscholastic de- 
bates. The first captain was Leo Brandstatter ('64- 
'65) and David Stearn was captain this past 
season. 

This year, the Varsity debates sparked much 
interest through controversial topics dealing with 
such matters as: United States involvement in 
Vietnam, our role in the Dominican Republic, 
and nationalization of the railroads. It is hoped 
that future Managers and captains will maintain 
student intrest in debating.

The Yuclids, under the 
able leadership of Mr. L. 
Cooper and co-captains S. 
Handelman and A. Ker- 
shenbaum, maintained a , 
fine record finishing in the 
top half of the Interscho- 
lastic Math League, a 
league composed of public 
and private high schools in 
the New York area. The 
popularity of the Yuclids 
has given rise to a new in- 
tramural sport, the Math 
Bowl which will hopefully 
supply the team with many 
able members in the future.

Concession 



The Concession, in its second year under stu- 
dent auspices, had a most successful year, netting 
over $800, and thereby made a substantial con- 
tribution to the Elchanite which received a large 
portion of the profits. Under the aegis of Siggy 
Handelman, Jeff Greenstein, and Dave Davies, 
the Concession met the nutritive needs of the stu- 
dent body, serving breakfast to the minyon-goers, 
lunch to everyone, and supper to the basketball 
team. The greatest volume of business, however, 
was done in snacks such as Ring Dings and Fruit 
Doodles, which kept the student body going 
throughout the long school day.

Visual Squad has grown greatly. Led by Alan 
Zelenetz and Dave Davies, the squad kept the 
microphones, record players and movie projectors 
in working order and made sure they were where 
they were needed when they were needed. With- 
out their help, the debates, High School Bowl 
meets, Chagigot, and numerous other functions 
could not have been the great successes which they 
were.

For YUHSB basketball fans, the 1965-66 
MJHSL season started off with a bang. In the an- 
nual pre-season Alumni game, the Yugars 
trounced a strong Alumni team 89-70. Four Yu- 
gars hit double figures in this game, led by Cap- 
tains Benzon and Lew who put in 21 and 17 
points respectively. 

In the league opener against Flatbush, the 
other two seniors on the team, Mike Friend and 
Gary Waltuch led the Yugars to a superb 73-60 
victory. The Yugars went on to win in their next 
four games, downing Elizabeth, Ramaz, Hili, and 
Flatbush. Thus, at the halfway point of the 
season the Yugars owned a 5-0 record, and first 
place in the MJHSL. 

Following a loss and a victory in two exhibition 
games, the Yugars entered the Hili Invitational 
Tournament. After an easy victory over St. Fran- 
cis Prep in the tourney opener, the Yugars topped 
Hili 56-49 to gain first place in the tournament. 
Norm Benzon, Yugar captain was chosen MVP 
of the tournament. This marked the first time 
in YUHSB history that the Yugars had won the 
championship in this annual event 

The second half of the season can be summed

.up by the word "injury." In the all-important 
MTA game Mike Friend suffered a torn cartilage, 
and against Hili Jonas Lew badly injured his 
shoulder. Plagued by these injuries and other 
minor ailments, the Yugars went on to drop 3 
of their last five games. In the post season playoffs 
Flatbush and Hili defeated YUHSB, and the 
team which had been picked by many to win 
the championship was forced to settle for a third 
place finish.

A QU A M E N 





The swimming team, placing a close second to 
Flatbush in a tight lY race, rolled up impressive 
victory scores against YUHSM, RAMAZ, and 
RJJ and were in keeping with the tradition of 
strong YUHSB swim teams. 

Leading the team this year were its captains, 
Matty Monheit and Steve Weinstock. Monheit 
broke every existing lY backstroke record and 
swam freestyle as well, while Weinstock eclipsed 
three school freestyle records this year and won 
consistently at 50 and 100 yards. Both captains 
were varsity swimmers for four years and both 
had hands in leading the team to three previous 
championships. 

Senior swimmers Norm Benzon, freestyle, Jonas 
Lew, breastroke, and ace backstroker Bernie Mez- 
rich swam with great success and undergraduates 
J. Yarmak, M. Kline, L. Shusterman, J. Wein- 
berg, J. Kowalski, S. Wilner and M. Weinstock 
gave the team the needed push to victor\'. Senior 
manager Jay Grunfeld again turned in an out- 
standing year as timekeeper and statistician.

The Junior Yugars, coached by former YUHSB 
front court star Hal Brettstein, began rather slowly 
but came on to place second in the standings just 
behind YUHSM. 

High scoring Brett, who attends Hunter College, 
shaped the team into a cohesive unit which pro- 
duced many top stars. M. Taubus, the team's lead- 
ing scorer and rebounder, R. Deutsch a jumping 
jack forward, and W. Weinreb, a backcourt play- 
maker are all top varsity prospects. 

With a good crop of freshmen ballplayers re- 
turning and the wealth of talent possessed by 
Coach Brettstein, a championship is a distinct pos- 
sibility for next year. 




A new outlet for student energies and support 
is the Yusox. After capturing a league title last 
year, the Yusox hope to continue in this vein in 
the 1966 season. Captained by Joseph Hershko- 
vitz, the soccermen suffered an exhibition loss but 
are optimistic about the upcoming season. Seniors 
Abe Rosensweig, Dov Zakheim and Gad Schwartz 
should help make this a season to remember in 
I.Y. competition. 





track 



The Cindermen, YUHSB's Track Team, are 
once again looking forward to a highly successful 
season. This year interest in track has risen, as 
.witnessed by the surprisingly large turnout at 
practices. The team tied for first place in the 
Jewish Press Track Meet last year and hopes to 
rise to greater heights this year under the leader- 
ship of Co-Captains D. Zakheim, G. Schwartz, 
and A. Kershenbaum. 



Softball 



As YUHSB's version of our national pastime, the 
Softball team posted an impressive record both 
in league play as well as in exhibition contests. 
Led by Captains Bruce Fader and Leo Brand- 
statter, the team was composed of a strong infield 
and an exceptionally fast outfield. However, the 
most consistent aspect of this year's team proved 
to be its hitting. Thanks to continued practices on 
Friday afternoon and lunchtime catches during 
the week this year's softball team proved to be 
one of the strongest in LY. history.

INTRAMURALS 



Intramural activities are unique among extra- 
curricular affairs in that underclassmen participate 
in them more extensively than in any other of the 
school's activities. In most instances, the school 
is divided, for intramural purposes, into a junior 
division, composed of freshmen and sophomores, 
and a senior division, composed of juniors and sen- 
iors. In this way, it is hoped that underclassmen 
will get the best chance of participating in intra- 
murals in an equitable atmosphere.

In the Fall Term athletic program this year, 
innovation was the by-word. Under the capable 
direction of Bill Schechter, three second lanes were 
painted on the basketball courts. This innovation 
had a profound influence upon the school cham- 
pionship, an honor garnered by Class 7A. 

Allstar games were also introduced, and the 
season's greatest upset occurred, in one such game 
when the Junior Allstars upset the Seniors in a 
very exciting game.

INTRA 



In the gridiron sport, Class IB won the junior 
division championship while Class 8B won the 
senior division and school championships using, 
for the first time, a school owned football. 

For the sports expert, Mr. Schechter started 
the Sports Bowl, a contest that matches the parti- 
cipants' knowledge of the world of sports. In a 
suprising finish, the junior division champions, 
Class 3B, beat Class 5A for the school champion- 
ship.

from each class were given the chance to pit their 
minds against those of their fellow students. Class 
3A emerged victorious in the battle of the brains 
this year and won the school championship. 

In short, the 1965-66 intramural program was 
one of the most successful ever. 



Spring Term Athletic Manager Phil Orbuch 
kept the good work up, as basketball, softball, 
bowling and ping-pong intramurals were held. In 
Mr. Orbuch's term, metal nets were bought for 
the basketball hoops for the first time. 

Debating intramurals enjoyed unusual success 
as there were exceptionally few forfeits. This was 
due primarily to the interesting topics put up for 
debate. Class 3A copped the junior division crown, 
while Class 7A won in the senior circuit and 
emerged victorious in the school championship. 

High School Bowl intramurals were the fastest- 
growing of all intramurals in YUHSB. Students

Trivl

rivia 



An innovation to the activities of the lY, the 
Trivia Bowl proved to be one of the most popular 
of Yeshiva sports. 

Trivia is played by a panel of five students each 
from three participating schools. Questions are 
asked of each school in turn and one point is 
awarded for each correct answer. Such questions 
include, "What was the color of Elmer Fudd's 
shoe?" and "what was the name of Pat Brady's 
jeep?" 

This year's team, led by comics' expert Abe 
Kempler, TV buff Jay Grunfeld, and the overall 
trivia-mindedness of Dave Levine rolled up an 
impressive record. 




Following in the tradition of last year's unde- 
feated "touchtackle" football team, this year's 
team rolled up an equally high victory total and 
again reigned undefeated. 

The defense, headed by B. Mezrich, M. Mon- 
heit, J. Grunfeld, J. Lew, and J. Krause proved 
solid while the offensive backfield of G. Waltuch, 
S. Weinstock, and B. Fader produced many an 
exciting run. "Red dogging" linebackers D. Levine, 
L. Brandstatter and A. Kershenbaum kept the 
opposition "honest" and helped the team to vic- 
tory.

The most popular of the Activities-in-Exile once 
again proved to be hockey. While blocking the op-

school's hockey buffs managed to get in a fine 
season of play. Ever gaining popularity, hockey 
may eventually take its rightful place among 
YUHSB's legitimate sports.

A life of toil a life of joy. A life of happiness 
and laughter. A life of despair and lost hope. A 
life of bringing up your kids and sending them 
to school. A life of working at your job day in, 
day out. A life of relaxation, leisure time, plays, 
musicals, concerts, the men's club. A life of strain 
and pressure, bills, and taxes, sicknesses, acci- 
dents. And soon the kids had grown up and time 
had flown faster than ever and again another 
phase was over. Something new was taking place. 
Life was slower and one felt older. . . .

The Lord of the Oxe 



n 



Roaring, rampant, raging red, 
El toro snorts and swings about 
In all his sweaty majesty. 



His drooling, ringed, regal shout 
Snorts, and swipes the roasting dust, 
Exploding clouds around his head. 
While fiery cinders scorch his mouth 
And sear his eyes like flaked rust. 
Lord of the oxen, for the galleries to see. 
Circling the arena ridiculously. 



Blazing, slick vermilion swirls, 

El Matador comes prancing round 

In bright, effeminate symmetry 

And toro hears the hums abound, 

Nebulous in greasy gleam. 

From stinking men and driveling girls 

And the oxen-stalls around. 

Gelded oxen a bull do deem 

Lord of the oxen — monarch for he 

Was spared his masculinity. 

Male he is; Lord he will die. 
In the rusty circle midst the maze 
Of seething sand where he will try 
To see his slim tormentor's face, 
Mustachioed, lean and threatening pain. 
'Neath the sagging soggy sky 
He comes, grinning in the haze, 
Onward. Onward! Onward again 



Lord of the oxen swims in his sea 
Of raging, royal symmetry.

The sun rose out of the horizon into the clear blue eastern sky, shedding its 
golden rays upon the land. It was once a beautiful land, a land with trees and birds 
and men. Today there were no trees, no birds, no men. 

Especially no men. They made sure of that, those fools who thought they could 
improve the world by dropping the bomb. Now all that was left was soot, ashes, 
rubble. 

Because of a few petty differences in ideology, a few lusty men destroyed in 
a few minutes what it took G-d eons to create. 

The sun slid behind a cloud. For a few moments, its rays no longer bathed 
the Earth in their golden light. But no one knew; no one cared. The sun might 
just as well have been gone forever.

A puissance draws him on, 

As, naught but lodestone, he is caught up. 

In a frenzied circle of unceasing affinity. 

A girl, nay, many winter months have passed, 

A woman beckons him, 

Who departed a child and returns a man. 

His numb feet press into the hard, white snow carpetting the vastness about him. 
And the crystalline glitter upon his eyes casts light upon a frozen tear, 
A tear of happiness. 

Now he has reached the town he bade goodbye so many years before, 

When the bugles and war drums had carried him off into their dissident world. 

Where harmony was man killing man and music was screaming. 

He enters through the gate from which he had passed. 

At sixteen into the hostility of war, 

And strangely, as in self-portent. The words of the immortal flash through his mind, 

"Abandon all hope ye who enter here." 

And suddenly obsessed with these words he stumbles. 
The wanderer who has reached his destination stumbles. 
Upon a grave. 

"Here lies she . . . dead . . . her man had gone to war." 

He forgets all words. 
And lies upon her grave, 
And the snow begins to fall. 

And he dies, sleeping with his love under the white blanket of snow feather, 

For not only had the war taken youth from the child, 

But life from the man. 

And left a wanderer never to consummate his love. 

Save in Paradise.

Day, night; 

Are these the skies 'neath which I strolled, 
The beam-bathed trees 'neath which I lolled? 
Where goes the Sun's life — rendering light? 
What instinct moves this creature night. 



Youth, years; 

Is this the man? Is this the mind 

That thought that someday I would find 

What nature moves the land, the sea. 

The winds that howl inside of me? 



To know that day would end so soon, 
To hear the distant bays at noon ! 
Would I still have slept and dreamt, 
Till all the day was gone, ill spent? 
But day will come, unheralded as night. 
Again I'll drift into sweet respite. 



And yet my queries met no end. 

No wiser am I now than when 

I saw the sky of the setting sun 

And thought "G-d's ways will ne'er be known.' 

Thus, all I've learned is that all is His. 

(Perhaps that's just what wisdom is.)

The questions and the answers 

They buzz in my skull like flies. 

They puncture my peace of hot breezes and swaying grass, 

My icy serenity of cardboard cups and soda — faucets of 

sweating chrome, 
Of slinky afternoon shadows of trees and tall buildings. 
They drone cuttingly, 'incessantly, infernally. 
Flies sawing electrically at the dungheap 
And I am at their mercy. 

And now, you howling hordes of questioners, 

How can I solve your woes and whys. 

Your cesspool of generalizations? 

For I have heard before these doubts and queries 

And already I have seen their answerers. 

I have seen them in sopping, pebbly parking-lots, kicking 
wildly, ridiculously, like crushed cockroaches in the 
dank and wobbly glimmer of the street-lamps. 

I have seen them at midnight, groveling naked on the 
Coney Island beaches, sucking and scratching the 
sand, screaming hideously, violently inching away from 
the onrush of the merry brown waters. 

I have seen them. 

I cannot make reply. 



The questions and the answers 

That murmur deep in my guts like flies 

That fatten on my vitals like flies 

They belch up deeply the steaming, putrefying blasts 

Circling the park benches, swirling in the trash flurries, 
searching; 

Raging and stinking in the slithering rush-hour conglo- 
meration of spider)- greenery, rotting and smoulder- 
ing, neighbor fingering neighbor obscenely; 

Cornering the carousel, the sickening cacaphony, the 
laughter of the children, the sneering little horses 
striving for an ending, begging for an ending, sinking 
in the vortex. 

Spinning, perfumy, bloated, glutted. Searching. 

Flies grow gummy, iridescent, clinging like leeches, 

Excretions jellied, ameba-like, swelling, 

Cloying globs of glutinous uncertainty, 

Seeking, within, damp, decaying folds. 

Finding in me but room for retching, 

Emptying — the — empty retching, 

Spewing frothy vomit on the swaying grass 

In the shadows and the afternoon sunshine. 

Sleep, 

It twinkles in the twilight; like a lake it beckons. 

Floats me through stillness into its liquid belly, 

Its quivering glaze of shimmering peaks 

Absorbs me into the all-enfolding creamy warmth, 

(Wake me not and I drown not) 

Sleep the fulfillment 

Sleep the protector.

An easy chair, and grandchildren. A social Se- 
curity form, and Medicare. A last will and testa- 
ment, and a death bed. . . . 

Yes, Man has often reflected on the cycle of 
life that is inevitably his destiny. He has asked the 
questions, "Where from?", and "Where to?". And 
some men have reached the conclusion that the 
entrance into life and the exit from that existence 
are located in the divine realms of the L-rd, and 
that men should strive to reach the exit as free 
from sin as when they left the entrance. . . . 

We, who are still in the second phase of our 
existance, hope and pray that we may achieve 
the spiritual purity that has marked the exit of so 
many of our forefathers. And we dedicate this book 
to this ideal of completing the cycle of our lives 
in purity and dignity.
