Yi- I g , r 5 Four years ago our tribe of Indians embarked an the quest for knowledge. In our little canoe which represents Amesbury High School we have paddled through rapids and still waters down the river of learning until now we have reached the open sea of life. The 1950 Pow-wow is the log in which is written the account of our journey. It records our joys and sorrows, our successes and failures. In future years when our canoe voyage seems just a vague memory we hope that this book will recall to the crew the happy days that belonged to us in Amesbury High School. 4 DEDICATION KENT WALKER 1 900-1949 From 1925 until his death in 1949 Mr. Walker served on the faculty of Amesbury High School as a teacher of science and as sub-master. Many of us were privileged to be in the classroom with him. All of us were under his friendly guidance. Therefore, in appreciation of twenty-four years of unselfish service, we, the Class of 1950, dedicate our Pow-wow to Mr. Kent Walker, our teacher and friend. 5 Charles L, Bowlby Walter E.

F R E N C H C L U B QQ Four years ago, when the Class of l95O were Freshmen, the Amesbury High School Band were all dressed in shabby uniforms, the lower half of which consisted of anything ranging from gray slacks to white trousers with a red stripe on the side. The jacket looked suspiciously large on some of the smaller members, while on the bigger boys there was more of a display of forearm muscles than of the red jacket. The hats were fashioned as those of army officers and the framing wire of many had burst through, making the wearers appear to be encircled by dull halos. Nevertheless, there was still a cheer from the crowd as the derelict band strag- gled on to the football field with battered horns blowing out "Military Escort" with gusto. Beneath the shabby uni- forms surged an undercurrent of spirit that was soon to rise to the surface. This nondescript band was active in many ways in the community. On cold November days frozen fingers played during the halves of football games. If the team werelvicto- rious, the band would again play after the game at rallies for the jubilant students in Market Square. The A. H. S. Band marched among the 28 high school bands at New- buryport during the Annual State Music Festival. lt also marched in the local Armistice and Memorial Day parades, 'lst row-- N. Parker, E. Kearney, O. Morse, C. Tuxbury, D. Dudley. 2nd row-Mr L Sambataro, R. Gaudet, S. Bean, E. Sousa, V. Lesage, R. Viel, G. Loiselle, G. Brown 3rd row- V. Bertolini, F. Butland, E. Meserve, L. Morse, E. Terry, R. Zeltzer, G. French as well as at the Halloween Night Parade and night before Thanksgiving rallies. The Baton Squad assisted on most of these occasions and was a great asset to the color and pep of the band. Various enterprises were undertaken to raise money for the benefit of the band. Tag days and booster weeks were featured. Perhaps the most successful undertaking was the magazine drive that divided the school into two competing teams, the Kigmies and the Shmoos. This project gave a good polishing to the long-tarnished spirit of the student body, as well as making about S700 for the band. Another popular method that provided much community enjoyment, as well as additional funds, was the annual band concert held each April. The band concerts have improved notably each year and probably the best program was given on April 29, l95O. After the concert, the younger set enjoyed a dance in the gym that was decorated appropriately. Little by little the band bettered itself in all phases. Gradually, new music, new instruments, and uniforms were added, Perhaps the greatest achievement of the band was in obtaining the interest of the students and townspeople, without which it could have done little. With their coopera- tion it has come a long way toward its ultimate goal.

On February tenth and eleventh the Class of "5O" offered a very professional presentation of "The Barretts of Wimpole Street" which thrilled and delighted the audience. Catherine O'Brien gave a splendid performance as Elizabeth Barrett. 'Her professional skill and dramatic ability were most remarkable, Eugene Terry as Robert Browning came through with the dash of the persistent suitor which made his work outstanding. The role of Edward Barret the dictatorial father, was taken by Robert Hanley. His masterly handling of each situation evoked loudest praise. Ruth French was perfectly cast as the assertive Henrietta who defied the iron rule of Barrett in a vigorous and effective fashion. As Arabelle Barrett, Barbara Carter was excellent, and Robert Keefe as her stuttering brother, Octavious also turned in ci fine performance. Richard Morse and Laurel Dickens competently played the roles of attending physicians. The work of Leo Joubert and William Boyle, both suitors of the Barrett daughters was most creditable. Elsie Sousa, in the part of "Wilson," Elizabeth's maid, was remarkably true to character in action, poise and accent. Bella, the flighty cousin of Elizabeth was played by Shirley Peterson whose naive coquettish manners enlivened the serious atmosphere. Paul Gilday, Emery Eaton, John Babine, Philip Michaud and Normand Gonthier as the Barrett brothers completed the en- semble of as fine a cast AHS has seen in many a year. 60 Charlotte P.

Confused and nervous, we groped our way to the various classrooms and were awed at the important acting people who frequently came in with bulletins. However, we were encouraged by the friendly attitude of our principal, Mr. Donald Oliver. As we became accustomed to our new school life, we learned that, among other things, we were expected to assembly. With the help of Mr. Roy, our head adviser, we planned and produced a talent show. ln February we held our class elections which gave the following results: president - Normand Gonthierg vice-pres- ident--Dorothy Bodwell, secretary-Martha Walters, treasurer - Ruth French, member-at-large - Catherine Greaney. Mr. Melia directed our first dramatic production, "Wonder Child", which proved that we "childish" freshmen were really "wonders"! At last toward the end of the year it was time to give our Freshman Dance. We decided on a fairyland theme. Blue and yellow.streamers, paper flowers, and archways adorned the gym on that wonderfully successful evening of June 6, 1947. With this happy remembrance of our initial year at A. H.S. we journeyed onward to a welcome summer vacation. When we began our sophomore year, we found that a new principal, Mr. Charles Bowlby, had taken the place of Mr. Oliver. Soon we elected officers. Thomas Sullivan became pres- ident, Mary greaney, secretary, and Joanne Bartlett, mem- ber-at-large. Dorothy Bodwell and Ruth French held their office of vice-president and treasurer respectively. Our Hallowe'en l-lop was held on October 24, T948 in the gym, which was decorated in the customary manner with witches, ghosts, and goblins presiding. For our sophomore assembly we decided to put on a play, "Elmer," which was directed by Mr. Averill, our head ad- visor, and presented on May seventh. We left in June, happy and hopeful that the remaining years would be even better than the first two. After a happy summer vacation we returned to another year of hard studies on September 9, l948. Our leaders for our junior year were Alan Girrior, president, Dorothy Bod- well, vice-president, Jeanne Carter, secretary, Ruth French, treasurer, Jo-Anne Bartlett, member at large. One of the first projects undertaken after elections was the selling of red and white beanies in order to raise money for our class. These were sold at a very appropriate time for we were then planning class floats for the pre-Thanks- giving Day Football Rally. Our class with the Hi-Y Club tied for the prize for the best float. f the Tribe With the help of Miss Hirschner, our head advisor, plans were made for a Tea Dance to be held on December 23, l948. Because this one was such o success, another was planned for January l8, l949. A juke box supplied the music for both affairs. As it was the duty of every class to present an assembly, we thought that a change from the usual skits would be appreciated. Therefore, we presented the motion picture, "A Tale of Two Cities." There were two more important events to plan for now. These were "Junior Night" and the "Junior Prom." Miss Hirschner and Miss Thomas were the directors of the two plays that were chosen for Junior Night, "The King's English" and "A Ghostly Evening." Finally, the time came for the all important event of the year, our Junior Prom. We had a Hawaiian setting as the theme of our decorations. The Prom was held on May 20, I949, with Horace Mac's orchestra supplying the music for on appreciative group of dancers. At the track meet that year our boys outdid themselves and brought glory to the class of '50 by winning every prize. Again in June we left A. H. S. for another vacation. As September 7, I949, rolled around, most of the old familiar faces were seen in rooms l4 or l5, but again we had a new principal, Mr. Walter Scott. We wanted to make this last year at Amesbury High one of particular importance, as it would stand out most in our minds a few years from now. We elected Roland Bodwell as president, Janet McPartland as vice-president, Barbara Carter, secretary, Ruth French as treasurer and Jo-Anne Bartlett as member at large. As a starter we sold red and white pennants and banners, Our first social affair was the Senior Victory Dance held on November 25, 1949. This dance was appropriately named as we had won over Newburyport again with a score of 57 to l8. Horace Mac supplied the music for the dance. The senior boys put on their own assembly on December l . John "The Laugh" Babine, Phil, "The Monster" Michaud and many other senior boys made it a long to be remembered assembly. On February lO and ll we presented the "Barretts of Wimpole Street" under Miss Hirschner's direction. The play brought out a great deol of hidden talent in some members of our class. Every member of the cast helped to make the play the success that it was. On May 5 we put on our farewell dance. Horace Mac again provided the music. At sing-out our class of seniors marched down the aisle, a little wistful perhaps, because this was their last time to assemble with. the other students at AHS. After a few last good byes, we, the class of l950, went out into the wide, wide world. ,J' Junior 'Prom Q9 if .r 5, . ii E I-Qcatchn C3 age' 7 5352 B . mah 'Dqnc Hillugleen Y sc f 1 l ..l f 4 ll i ,- 1 A X A f f Slnfovl' . . fx A X Elm: r- 73 7 Tomorrow's Tomorrow lt was a rare day in June and Paul Gilday, president of the Lowell Textile Company, was sitting in a well-worn swivel chair with his well-worn feet propped upon his well- worn desk when there was an abrupt knock at the door. Hostily swallowing an aspirin and gulping down a bottle of coke, Gilday hiccoughed, "Come in." The door opened and there, trim and natty in her Western Union suit, stood Lorraine Landry. Expecting a personal wire from Princess Yasmin, his latest heart throb, Gilday was sadly disappointed upon opening the telegram which bore the following mes- sage: "Warehouses broken into - stop - looted - stop -- and burned - stop - hurry here at ance - don't stop." Richard Morse Head of N. Y. office of Lowell Textile Company Gilday received this letter with mixed emotions. For ten years he and his associate, Dick Morse, had built this textile business to immense heights. He immediately called his private secretary, Dorothy Dollen, and instructed her to send this message to his partner. "On my way by private plane immediately. Call Babine, Doherty and Girroir Detective Agency into the case." Gilday hurried to his plane piloted by John Henry, who had already served seven years with the Navy. ln New York Morse started to take action. He summoned his secretary, Kathleen Savage, to call Joan Crossman's, Joan llsley's and Joanne Bartlett's Deluxe Fashion Shop whose motto was, "Keep up with the Joans." Since GiIday's firm supplied their fashion shop with material, they must be informed that shipments would be stopped for a while. The phone was answered' by their sales manager, Dan Ryan, who informed Morse that all three bosses were at the airport to meet their distinguished guests, who were world famed society people. Meanwhile at the airport Theresa Wilson, noted author of "A Spree Grows in Newburyport," Madame Helen Ouellette, inventor of the underwater state pen, Dorothy Polletta, Sen- ator from Hawaii, and Barbara Faulkingham Vanderbilt had just arrived and were busily engaged in conversation with the air hostess, June LeMaire. They were joined by the three fashion designers and were soon seated in an orange taxi driven by the skillful hands of Alotta Lentell. Safe and unharmed, believe it or not, they arrived downtown at the Fly Speck Hotel owned by Hanley and McGloin. ln the uptown office of Robert Zeltzer, nationally known psychologist, his secretary, Dorothy Tilbury, had just acl- mitted a weird looking patient who rushed into the room and started confessing his mania for starting warehouse fires. Then realizing what he had said, he immediately rushed into another sitting room where Janet Violette, Zelt- zer's other secretary, was sitting placidly crocheting. Seeing her, he stumbled down the corridor followed by Zeltzer, who was running at top speed. Seeing him enter the Deluxe Fashion Shop and knowing about the recent warehouse fires, he called Morse and told him of his experience. Immediately Morse summoned his detectives, telling them to get over to the fashion shop on the double. At the fashion shop a style show had just started. Bar- bara Carter, Juliette Bergeron, and Muriel Vermette led the parade, wearing the latest creations of celluloid hoop skirt dresses designed by Nelson Smith. Next in line were Norann Terrio and Kay Greaney modeling the latest petticoats de- signed by Ruth French, noted interior decorator. Gretchen Brown, Mary Stevenson and Norma Russell followed 'wearing the new daring three piece bathing suit. Two Social Editors from rival newspapers, Jane Corliss and Helen O'Neil, were observing the novel creations. Dur- ing their conversation, they commented on some of the famous people present, such as Roland Bodwell, Governor of New York, accompanied by his attractive wife. Famous violinist, Carol Tuxbury, with her equally famous accom- panist, Elsie Sousa, seemed to be in animated conversation with Martha Walters and Marlene Groetz, well known novelists. Philip Michaud and Edwin Meserve, auto manufacturers, utterly bored with the show started to leave just in time to bump into our three detectives who were entering the lobby. To the great disturbance of the large -gathering, Babine, Doherty and Girroir walked up and down the aisles looking for the suspicious character Zeltzer had reported. Suddenly a man sprang out of his seat, dashed up the aisle and made a beeline for the street followed in close pursuit by the detectives. The chase made its way up New York's Fifth Avenue, knocking over Bill Boyle's peanut cart and shoving Raymond Roy, an organ grinder, and his monkey out into the street. Officers Carl Fowler and William Leslie joined the chase. In the confusion of the chase through the crowded streets, the pursuers were separated. Each went in a different direc- tion thinking he was still chasing the firebug. Detective Babine finally ended his pursuit in the City Hospital. Haphazardly he burst into the women's ward cre- ating such a disturbance that nurses Ruth Bernabei, Anne Blais, June Brideau, Eleanor Norling and Jeanne Carter descended on him with such vehement words and baleful looks thot he dashed out in terror, only to run into the hospital secretary, Sally Barnard. As Girroir was running along he heard the tinkle of a bell and looking up, saw Ellie Eaton bearing a sign which said, "Contribute to the Proposed A.H.S. Gym." Hastily dropping a Canadian penny into her outstretched palm, Girroir rushed on. He soon found himself upon the stage where Normand Gonthier's play "Havoc" was in the midst of a torrid love scene played by Kay O'Brien and Gene Terry. Two excited stage hands, Floyd Ashe and Herbert Fish, rushed onto the stage and angrily ushered Girroir out. I Officer Fowler finished his futile chase at a big athletic testimonial banquet where Mike Lago, stalwart coach of Michigan, was giving a few appropriate remarks. Robert Keefe and Mike Polletta, stickers of the New York Rangers, plus Tom Sullivan, hard hitting major league baseball player, William Levesque and John Lewis, champion bowlers, Weary Gould, professional football player, who holds down the left side of the Green Bay Packers, and Richard Blaisdell, star forward of the Celtics, were additional speakers for the evening. Officer Leslie stampeded into a nearby lecture hall just as Professor Emery Eaton was closing his address' on the merits of Harvard University. Vacationing teacher, Dorothy Morrill, was an interested listener. Of the pursuers Doherty was the only one who kept up the chase. He was determined to bring his man in, whatever the circumstances. He followed him up and down the side streets, in and out of subways, always just behind, never catching up, but still pursuing. The chase dragged on from minutes, to hours, to days, and finally weeks. One day while in hot pursuit after the maniac, Doherty saw him disappear into the crowds of a huge county fair. The two top men operating the fair, Henry Gamelin and Robert Gaudet, agreed to cooperate with Doherty in finding the maniac. lncidentally, the fair featured some top notch performers: Connie Gilmore, acrobat and singer, Claire Kelley, tap dancer, John Meeks, the strong man, and the afternoon feature was a midget auto race made even more exciting by the two famous daredevils, Bob Dronsfield and Leo Joubert, the "Big Wheel." At night a cow girl roping and riding contest was scheduled, featuring such stellar performers as Shirley Peterson, Margie Loiselle and Leala Allard. It was three that afternoon when the winners of the ladies' baking contest were announced over the loudspeaker. The best cake prize went to Dorothy Bodwell. For the best pie, Joan Sadowski, relishes, Barbara Sanborn, knitting, Claire Hamel, sewing, Shirley Bryant. At another part of the fair Edmond Belanger walked off with the prize winning heifer while Richard Dickens had the best looking Rhode Island Red hen. Out front on the midway at the "Test Your Strength" machine, Albert Ouellette was giving o cigar to Mary Baxter who had just rung the bell. lt was here that Jack Connor, meat cutter at Connor's Super Market, ran into Al and they began to talk of old times and what some of their class- mates were doing. Raymond Ofiellette, a travelling sales- man, is out West. Norman Bourgeois owns and operates Alec's Soda Shop. Janet McPartland and Mary Carroll are co-owners of a stable and have a filly entered in this year'S Kentucky Derby. Diane Miner and Laura Perusse are ,enjoy- ing enormous success in the restaurant business. Marion Belanger and Marilyn Rogers operate a Beauty Shop. A new clothing and cosmetic shop has been opened by Irene LaFlamme. Robert Cote is manager of a new open air theater that has recently started in Amesbury. Mary Malone and Mary Greaney have just made the headlines again as members of the Elizabeth H. Whittier Club. Mary Cady, Arlene Doherty and Patricia Berry are telephone operators. Huge profits have been taken in by Laurel Dickens, gas station attendant, selling lpso gas. And Doherty still pursues the maniac. Maniacs, madness, bombs and bluster.

The Tribal Battlefield Displaying the best "opening game" form af any Ames- bury High team to be produced in recent years, the Red and White gridiron representatives opened their forty-nine cam- paign with a 2l-O victory over an out-played, and out- classed team from Andover. Amesbury scored touchdowns in the first, second, and fourth periods. T. D.'s were made by Keefe, Sullivan and Moran respectively. Captain Mike Lago kicked all three goals. Amesbury was superior in many respects on paper, but failed to score against Herm Hussey's powerful Marblehead team. Amesbury had 8 first downs, Marblehead only 2. Amesbury gained l23 yards from scrimmage, Marbelhead gained 70. Amesbury completed exactly 5O'Za of its for- ward DGSSCS, five out of ten attempted, Marblehead was able to complete six forwards of fourteen attempted. Some fancy ball handling by the magicians reaching into their bag of tricks caused the defeat of Amesbury High. Showing improvement in several departments, Amesbury High School won a 7-6 thriller-diller victory over a veteran Winthrop High eleven. The biggest thrill came when Ames- bury held Winthrop for four solid line bucks in their most earnest attempt to score their second T. D. lt wasn't until the final quarter that Amesbury got rolling and behind some beautiful blocking Keefe skirted right end for our touch- down. Buxton kicked the winning point. The local eleven dropped one of its most important con- ference games when they Iost to Saugus High by the score of 27-O. The Nicola brothers, Sardi and Richie, provided most of the offensive work against Coach Tassinari's ter- riers. Amesbury fought valiantly, but in the final period when Toss saw the contest hopelessly lost, and with an eye for future games, he used many members of the second squad in his lineup. The Pow-wow Indians scalped Searles High of Methuen by the score of 27-O. We displayed our superiority in show- ing our ability to gain on the ground, by chalking up a net yardage in excess of 300 yards during the four periods. We also demonstrated a marked improvement in our defen- sive plays. At the start of the third period Tass inserted most of his second string. These boys made an excellent showing. In the final period a pass from Moran to Gautreau, who was standing in the end zone, clinched the final score. Touchdowns were made by Sullivan, Gautreau, Drew and Carey while Buxton kicked 3 out of 4. The Indians racked up one of their more prominent vic- tories defeating Swampscott High by the score of 20-0. The Sculpins were outclassed in all departments by a strong and cagey Amesbury team. We registered ll first downs while Swampscott was credited with but 4. We also had a net yardage rushing of l98 yards while the visiting eleven's net yardage was but l7. ln the air Amesbury completed 3 out of its 9 attempted passes while Swampscott scored only 3 out of I6 tries. Sullivan and Moran were the scorers for Ames- bury while Buxton converted 2 out of 3. The Indians easily defeated an injury-riddled Portsmouth High team by the score of 2l-O. Looking to the future, Tass inserted all forty members of the A. H. S. squad. The story of the game is best portrayed by statistics. Amesbury made I5 first downs, while Portsmouth made but 2. The Red and Gray clad team amassed a total of 232 yards by rushing, while the Clippers of Portsmouth gained but 36 yards. Amesbury attempted 4 forward passes and completed 2, one for a touchdown, Portsmouth attempted 3 forwards, none of which were completed. T. D.'s were made by Sul- livan and Brochu. Buxton kicked 3. s Keefe, halfback ihnny Babine, quarterback will Boyle, tackle if The gridsters of A. H. S. were definitely outclassed by Gloucester High, one of the best high school teams in the state. We were downed by the score of 32-6. The Messrs. Lucido and Nicastro were the outstanding representatives for the Fishermen. Amesbury's one and only T. D. came in the third period, when the "Pony" backfield with Porky May appearing in the starring role, began a goalward march that ended with May's going over for the score. Amesbury High and a strong Danvers team battled to a O-0 tie. Although the visiting eleven outplayed our local boys, the Onion Towners were unable to cross the goal line for a score. ln the final period Danvers tried a field goal but was un- successful, and at the sound of the final gun the score still stood at 0-0. We did it again! The Pow-wow lndians trampled the Clippers by the embarrasing score of 5l-l8 in the traditional Turkey Day Game. Our backs and linemen played the best game of their careers and have a right to be proud. Keefe drew first blood by scooting 66 yards on the second play in the first quarter. After this the Joppa boys must have lost faith, because Tassinari's Terriers went crazy. We completed forward passes, intercepted passes, made 40 to 50 yard gains, racked up touchdowns right and left and turned in points galore. Nobody expected anything like a 5l-l8 rout, not even the most optomistic Hat-Towner. ln this game honorable mention should go to all members of the Amesbury High squad and not to any one person. Amesbury's present record now stands at l3 wins against Newburyport's 9 and with 6 tie games. The'A. H. S. points total 370 against 242 for N. H. S.

Saugus AMESBURY vs. DANVERS The Amesbury High quintet clung to a seven point half- time lead and ultimately downed Danvers High 4l-38. The Red and Gray crew got off to an early start and were ahead at the half 26-I9. The fourth period proved too much for the Onion Towners, and Amesbury went out in front to win over a strong Danvers quintet. Amesbury High's basketeers assured themselves of fourth place in the Northeastern Conference race, when they downed Danvers High 60-4l. Once again Captain Tom Sullivan, netting I6 points, took high scoring honors. Ames- bury High bullied its way out in front to win by the over- whelming score of 60-4I. AMESBURY vs. WINTH ROP The winning streak of the Amesbury High basketball team came to a sudden halt when the Amesbury five lost to Winthrop by a score of 50-35. Bernetein, playing for Winthrop, spelled defeat for Amesbury when he caged I2 points. Sullivan and English paced the Indians, but, even so, they could not match the strong Winthrop club and Ames- bury lost 50-35. ln the second contest, Amesbury High's basketeers were crushed by Winthrop 68-52. Winthrop submerged the Red and Gray under a I5 point barrage in the opening period and racked up a surprising half-time advantage of 42-l5. ln the third and fourth stanza, they pushed way out in front and went on to win by a wide margin. AMESBURY vs. MARBLEH EAD With Captain Tom Sullivan and Joe Kardek combining for 25 points, our boys played their best game of the season, nearly jolting Marblehead out of first place before losing to the headers 50-46. Actually, the game was won on the foul line, with Marblehead making good ,on ten free throws. In the second game, the Marbleheaders leaped out to an early IO-7 first period lead and kept up a-steady barrage of baskets to give Amesbury one of its worst lickings. At the half, the Headers were out in front by the score of 29-l7, and in the 3rd and 4th stages the Indians were held to I3 and 8 points respectively. The Magicians pulled more than double that out of their hat. AMESBURY vs. NEWBURYPORT Friday, the thirteenth, proved no jinx to the Amesbury High hoopsters. The Indians defeated their arch rivals, the Newburyport Clippers, 25-22. At the half-time, Amesbury trailed'l2-9. We fought back in the third and final periods paced by Sullivan and English to put Amesbury out in front 25-22. In the second game with Newburyport, the Ames- bury quintet once more downed their rivals, this time by a score of 49-37. The Joppa boys led I8-I7 at the half-time, but the Indians piled up 20 points, with English personally accounting for I0 of them during the second half. It was Amesbury all the way, never with less than a I0 point lead. AMESBURY vs. SAUGUS lt wasn't even a contest as Amesbury High's basketball squad racked up its second Northeastern Conference victory by pounding a weak Saugus High 55-2l. Saugus jumped into an early 9 point lead, but the Red and Gray came along fast and went on to win by an overwhelming score. In the second game Amesbury High rang down the curtain on its I950 basketball season by coasting to a 44-33 vic- tory over Saugus. This victory clinched fourth place in the Northeastern Conference for A. H. S. AM ESB U RY vs. SWAMPSCOTT The opening of the Northeastern Conference found Ames- bury losing to a strong Swampscott five. Swampscott took advantage of Amesbury's weakness at the foul line, pinning a 34-28 defeat on us. The spark plugs for the Red and Gray were "Buster" Ouellette and "Mugger" McGloin. Amesbury High had the Swampscott Sculpins on the ropes for three-quarters of its Northeastern Conference tilt. The Indians cooled 'off in the final period and lost the game 56-47. Amesbury, paced by Ed Roy, led at the half 29-24. The Sculpins went on a scoring spree in the final minute and one half to turn the game into a lop-sided victory. Hockey we-www . lst row-M.

A SM ' X " :sr Amesbury High, making its start in the North Shore hockey league, dropped a 3-I decision to Swampscott at the North Shore Sports Arena, Lynn. The playing was ragged, but the Indians showed signs of improvements in their fol- lowing games. The scoring for Swampscott came in the 2nd and 3rd periods while we scored in the 2nd period. The Indians pushed the Lynn English hockey outfit all over the ice in their second start of the season but we had to return home from Lynn with a l-l tie, The Red and Gray skaters looked ragged in the first few minutes but after "Red" Joubert pushed one across they showed plenty of renewed spark. We were held to another stalemate in our clash with Lynn Classical. The outcome was a hard fought 2-2 tie, The Indians got rid of the jitters after a shaky start in the lst period to take a one goal lead which was flipped in by Armand Roy. Amesbury High's hockey sextet and Saugus fought ta a scoreless tie which made it the 3rd deadlock in a row for us. Saugus carried the puck I3 times to our goal but in each instance Ray Roy, senior netminder, kept the disc out of scoring position. We experienced difficulty in getting an offensive underway and showed our lack of practice sessions noticeably. The Red and Gray representatives dropped their second league game of the season to the Revere High sextet I-0 in the closing minutes of the 3rd period. We were outplayed but showed plenty of improvement in our spirited play against a bigger opponent. The Marblehead Magicians downed the A. H, S. puck- chasers by the narrow margin of 3-2. It might have been the lst victory for the Indians if it had not been for defen- sive lapses in the closing stanza. THQ? outstanding players of the day were Captain Bob Keefe and "Red" Joubert. I I .says A . file- . . ,gg1SQf' xv. S X Turning in its best performance of the season the A. H. S. hockey team nearly held a strong Beverly High team to a I-I tie but a long 25 foot shot by Jack Winer early in the final period gave the Garden City sextet a 2-I victory over the Indians. Beverly scored first, but the Indians tied the score in a rough second period. Beverly then broke the tie in the aforementioned manner. Continuing to show marked improvement, an underdog Amesbury High sextet kept o highly rated Peabody outfit on its toes as the Indians scored a mid-first period goal and then nearly held the Tanners before dropping a 2-I decision to the Leather City club at Lynn. Andy "Black Jack" Brochu was the starlight of the afternoon performance. Looking like an outfit playing its Ist game, Amesbury High's hockey sextet missed several scoring opportunities as they fell into a tie for last tplace in the North Shore Hockey League standings by losing to Salem High I-O. The only score was made by Salem's Captain Philip Richards, This lone goal came in the 3rd period. As it was expected even by the most optomistic, Gloucester High had little trouble in trouncing the Amesbury Indians 6-O in a North Shore Conference game. The Fishermen scored twice in each of the periods. Ray Roy, Amesbury goalie, made several spectacular saves and thus kept the tally down to reason. Andy Brochu and Clovis Proulx were the "Big Wigs" for Amesbury. With the A. H. S. Sextet two men short because of pen- alties, Danvers High slammed in a deadlocking goal mid- way during the final period and "lit the Iamp" with the winning tally in the final minutes of play as the Onion- towners edged the Amesbury pucksters 2-I in the final day of scheduled North Shore league ploy at the Lynn Sports Arena. The Red and Gray ended their first year in the league with an 8 lost, 3 tied record to put them in last place in the northern division. .- Nlllllgli Q 'elf A Q-1 W . gd ' -.A tees 'K ,-:M - A. H. S.

Tom started his baseball career in his freshman year and has occupied left field ever since. His most noteworthy assets are his hitting and agility on the base paths. Bob Keefe had held down a center field position for the past two seasons. Although diminutive in size, Bob is considered one of the fastest runners in the Northeastern Conference. He has an exceptional amount of team spirit. Buster Ouellette, lanky 3rd baseman, has been with the first club for the past two seasons. His consistent hitting is a major asset to the Indians. Tinker Hanley has very capably filled the keystone spot of the infield. His exceptional ability to field anything within reason at second base has earned him the respect of his teammates. Bill Boyle has been a veteran utility man for four seasons. Bill is particularly famous for his clutch-hitting and wonderful team play. Many a game has been pulled out ofthe fire and saved by his 9th inning hits. 86 ,QA I Baseball -, ff N if r X f - I I f . , 1 X Q 1 44 iipxv V 1 if sf 2 .flirr X1 y I. v A I eh- ff5'M,, A f X . sale WS N ff UMW N., H: ll 3 555, ' .

In the fall, under the capable leadership of Miss Catherine Bourgeois, the girls had many enjoyable and constructive classes in field hockey. They became familiar with the sport quickly and were able to play very well by the end of the season Teams were organized and games were played each day, The gym classes also played field hockey. As the weather became colder and winter set in, thoughts turned to basketball. During the basketball season practice was held in the high school gym every evening because the boys' team had the use of the gym after school. The girls had a really organized team this year. Though no regular games were scheduled they did play a few games with other 3 high school teams, ln the two games played with Methuen High, the Amesbury High School Girls lost by very close scores. An important quality which many of their opponents noticed among the members of the team was the wonderful spirit. Even when the team was losing, the spirit was always high. Although the team didn't win very often, the girls were pleased that they finally had a real team and had proved that girls' sports can be successful as a part of the high school program. ln the spring the gym classes played softball daily on the regular baseball diamond, but there were not enough can- didates to organize a regular team. Perhaps next year there will be more candidates and the girls will be as successful in softball as they have been in field' hockey and basketball. CATHERINE BOURGEOIS Coach El, Q ME ssig 'L Ekfib pf.
