MR. GINO BONFIETTI
Although the class of 1964 will be the fourth to graduate from Industrial
Electronics, it will be the first to complete the four year program.
The student has a variety of choices from which to select in the field of
Electronics which includes radio and television servicing, or Htroubleshootingj'
to electronic engineering. Radio and television are only two branches of elec-
tronics, but their fundamental principles can be applied to a multitude of
industrial devices. The two departmental instructors do an excellent job pre-
paring students who have little difficulty being assimilated into a rapidly
The freshman and sophomore classes, taught by Mr. James DiMeglio,
learn the basics of electricity through the principles of alternating and direct
currents, construction of vacuum tubes, transistors, and some radio "trouble-
In the junior and senior years, Mr. Gino Bonfietti, department head,
teaches the principles of circuits. Upon completion of simple circuits, more
complex circuits and systems are studied.

The whole world of electricity is so broad that most workers find it
necessary to specialize in some small part of the work. Some become linemen
for power and telephone companies, others go into factory work, installing,
serving and maintaining the many electrical devices used in modern industry.
Perhaps the widest span of electrical work is found by the journeyman elec-
trician employed by an electrical contractor. He may be wiring a new home
store, or oiiceg he may be hooking up some motors in an industrial concern
or wiring a large sign on a roof. He is continually meeting new situations
which call for real problem solving on his part. He must demonstrate and
apply a real understanding of basic knowledge. Throughout the four years
the student receives training in shop and theory to provide him with the basic
skills and necessary knowledge so that industry can develop him into an
experienced journeyman, and later a supervisor in the world's most expanding

Expert and skillful machinists emerge through the patient, precise instruc-
tion of Mr. Proulx and Mr. Blackburn.
The beginning machine student learns first the quality product is the
goal of his labors. First year machine shop students are taught the use of
lathes, milling machines and grinders. Introduction to the various machines is
facilitated by student projects for their own use or shop use. From construc-
tion of small tools for his own use, to fabrication of new parts for repair of
shop machinery, to rebuilding of parts and repair for all outside jobs, in
every product form follows function with precision the keynote.
The second is reserved for a wide variety of projects which give the
machinist invaluable work experience in advanced machinery technique.
