We were about seven hundred in number, a few more girls than boys. We were just out of Junior High and somewhat confused and bewildered, be- cause entering high school was a strange experience, and we were not certain as to how we should act. After listening to Mr. Gammon’s words of encourage- ment and advice, the tension was relieved, and we made up our minds to make the most of our high school careers. Our interests were first turned to football. ' ' Cud” Tobin and “Eddie” Burns proved to be potential stars and showed that they would be a great as- set to the team in the future. In the winter, the Dramatic Club presented " The Admirable Crichton,” which was sensational and a great success. Since the leading roles were usually assigned to juniors or seniors, we were greatly surprised and pleased to hear that Jean Mark, a sophomore, was to play the lead as Lady Mary. She gave a very praiseworthy performance, and Peggy Bond, another sophomore, showed great talent as Lady Catherine. Our sophomore year was saddened by the sudden death of Warren Dunn. Prominent in athletics and in bis studies, he will live long in the memory of his classmates. And so ended our sophomore year. Our class had been well represented in all school activities, and we had high hopes for the future. We returned the next fall as juniors, looked up to by the sophomores and tolerated by the seniors. Lor the first week or so, we enjoyed ourselves by con- fusing and misleading the sophomores, but then we settled down to make our junior year an outstanding one. “Cud” Tobin and " Eddie” Burns lived up to all expectations on a foot- ball team which was not so successful as in previous years, but beat Melrose in the final game, which made up for an otherwise poor season. Later in the year, the Dramatic Club came through with its usual brilliant performance in " Excursion.” Jean Mark again played the leading role with professional charm and grace. Our class was further represented by George Harvender and Helen Basmajian, who gave notable performances. In the winter and spring sports, Arlington High was very successful. The hockey team was the champion in its league, and the baseball team won top honors in the Suburban League. We are especially proud of " Bob” Sanders and John Spinner, who did much towards the success of these teams. The basketball team, ably supported by juniors Russ Isner and Charles Glennon, tied for top place in the Suburban League but lost out in the playoffs. (Page Ninety-two) The Gilbert and Sullivan Club put on The Mikado, ' which was sup ported by a brilliant cast and which brought more renown to our class. Don aid Sullivan as Koko will long be remembered by us, and Paul Lane’s portrayal of Pooh-Bah was equally magnificent. Our Junior Prom, sponsored by the Student Council, was one of the highlights of the social season. Jean Mark brought more fame to our class by winning the Red Cross Oratorial Contest and represented Massachusetts in the National Convention at Washington, D. C. Marjorie Semonian also contributed by winning a first and a fourth place in a National Music Composition Contest. Our class felt keenly the loss, by death, of our classmate, Leon Frankel. At last came the long awaited day. On September ninth we returned as proud and lofty seniors. We had to face the year without Mr. Hormell, who went to Medford. Our loss is Medford ' s gain. We were glad, though, to welcome Mr. Fusco as Mr. Hormell’s successor We also wish to welcome Mr Warner in the Science Department, Miss Rooney in the Commercial Depart- ment. Miss Starrett in Household Arts, and Miss Brown, who is succeeding Miss Pattison, beloved English teacher, who died during the summer. The football team, captained by Eddie Burns and Russ Isner, did remark- ably well. Except for a defeat at the hands of Melrose, we should be proud of our team. Early in the fall, class elections were held, and we chose the following: President, Warren Dale: Vice-President, Elizabeth Marshall: Secretary, Jeanne Hagan: Treasurer, Robert Sanders. During the winter the Student Council ran several dances which proved to be very popular. Also it sponsored a drive to keep the lunchroom tidy, which met with great success. New cash registers were installed in the lunchroom, and they did away with all the ticket lines and speeded up the lines at the counters. The Dramatic Club presented " The House Beautiful. " which was tho- roughly enjoyed by all who attended. Stephen Keefe and Catherine laconis were outstanding in the leading roles. President Warren Dale inaugurated the system of sending flowers to those members of our class who are sick. This idea met with much approval and was a great success. The ski team brought a cup to Arlington by winning the Ski Meet at Mount Hood. With the Senior Prom, Class Day, and Graduation not far off. we can look back over our years at Arlington High with pride. We appreciate all that the school and teachers have done for us, and we will not forget them. (liaii. JSona --- IQ -f.O A. H. S.

The Class of 1940 should be proud of such an enthusiastic and capable organization. The Stu- dent Council sponsored afternoon dances which were well attended by the mem- bers of the student body.

The Dramatic Club, directed by Mrs. Matthews and Miss Johnston, boasted this past year about two hundred and fifty members. The club se- lected as its annual play, " The House Beautiful,” by Channing Pollock, which was presented with considerable success, financial and artistic, February 3, at the Town Hall. In important roles were Catherine Iaconis, Jean Mark, Ste- phen Keefe, J ' erry Shuman, Richard Schober, and Eugene Deute. To name the others deserving praise would necessitate listing the entire cast. The Dramatic Club ' s offering for the New England Drama Festival, held this year in Everett, was " The Maid of France. " The cast: Peggy Bond, Kath- erine O’Brien, Stephen Keefe, George Harvender, and Harry Hanson.

The House Beautiful, by Channing Pollock, was one of the outstanding artistic successes of A. H. S. Dramatic Club, even comparing favorably with The Merchant of Venice and The Enemy, which have held highest laurels in the history of the club. The House Beautiful presents a difficult staging problem, which was handled with remarkable success. T he vision scenes, presented on a high back- ground stage, were in some cases of breath-taking loveliness. Changes in the very large number of scenes were handled by an efficient stage crew with ef- fective results, except in lack of cooperation by certain immature members of the audience. The acting was of extremely high caliber throughout all parts. Cath erine Iaconis, as Jennifer, gave a life-time of emotions with the sincerity and in- sight of a budding Helen Hayes: Stephen Keefe carried the supporting lead with a simple directness that was most convincing: Jean Mark presented a highly emotional part with artistic control. Since this play also earned a larger profit than any of recent years, it can be considered an outstanding success in all respects.

Previously organized by members of a journalism class and named “The Chronicle,” this year found no class in journalism. Thereupon, members of the student body decided to reorganize and start a new paper. Miss Treat, Mr. Arthur, and Mr. Robinson were chosen as fac- ulty advisers. The editors and the staff have supplied us with much interest- ing news, gossip, humor, editorials, and interviews. Among those who have been interviewed for the Quill, we discover the names of band leader Kay Kyser, “The Dead End Kids,” and Terry Kilburn, a young English star. The regular feature attractions in each issue have been as follows: Chatter- box, Faculty Facts, Sharps and Flats, Facts about Features, Sport Shots, and Getting Around (with the Seniors). Three cheers should be given to those who helped make “The Quill” a success.

At the start of each weekly meeting, the presi- dent appointed a chairman and a critic, after which a debate was held. Thus every member has had an opportunity to gain experience in each of these posi- tions: chairman, critic, and debater. Logic and the fundamentals of debating were not considered in detail. Rather an attempt was made to cultivate proper delivery, correct diction, and self-confidence. The Debating Club is really a training ground for the Var- sity Debaters, who this past year, as always, debated with other schools, win- ning a good share of these competitive debates. The Debating Club plans a banquet for its members at the end of the school year, on which occasion pins will be presented to all members of the club.

With an enrollment of seventy-five members, this year has been the most successful of the years the Ski Club has been in existence. The club was fortunate in winning the beautiful, thirty-six inch trophy donated by the Dartmouth Alumni Association of Boston to the high school ski team gaining the most points in the boys ' and girls’ skiing events held at the Annual Winter Sports Carnival sponsored by the Mt. Hood Golf and Recrea- tional Association of Melrose. Nineteen high schools competed for this cup. The trophy is to be kept by the winning high school for one year and is to be kept permanently by the first high school to win it three times. On January 22nd, 1940, the Ski Club was invited to attend the opening meeting of the Mt. Hood Association preceding the Mt. Hood Carnival. There Mr. Roland Peabody, manager-director of the Cannon Mt. Tramway, the guest speaker, showed some excellent motion pictures of skiing in New Hamp- shire and the Tramway in the making. On March 16th, 1940, a team composed of the officers of the club and three of the members raced against Leominster High School Ski Team, at Leominster. The A. H. S. team lost the downhill race, but retaliated by win- ning the slalom race. During the season the club has been on many trips to New Hampshire ski centers such as Gilford, North Conway, and Tuckerman Ravine. The officers of the 1939-1940 Ski Club are: President RICHARD HANSON, ' 40 Vice-President DONALD MANN, ’40 Secretary LEONARD HATCH, ' 40 (Page One Hundred Two) Modd £10 Back Ron R. Brown.

The Girls’ Glee Club of 1939-1940, consisting of about ninety girls, hopes to uphold the name of the Arlington High School Girls’ Glee Club and win the State Music Festival and the All-New England Music Festival for the fourth successive year. Besides singing at both festivals this spring, the club, under the direction of Miss Etbelwyn Wardle, is to sing on the radio. The girls have already sung at the Arlington Women’s Club and at school assem- blies. The dance sponsored by the Girls’ Glee Club last fall was well sup- ported by the student body and furnished the club with funds which are to be used to send the girls to the Music Festivals.

It presented quite a spectacle with twenty twirl- ers dressed in white sweaters and red skirts marching ahead of our sixty musi- cians. Because of the long, tedious hours of designing intricate formations by Mr. Einzig and Mr. Mazzocca, the display added a colorful touch to the enthu- siasm of A. H. S. rooters. The position of drum major was awarded to Frank Byran and Everett Linekin, who led our band down its field of melodious victory and directed our school song. Although the most outstanding accomplishment was its work during the football season, the band also played at school assemblies and marched in local parades. (Page One Hundred Six) Violins, M.

The orchestra played at many school assemblies and took part in the two best school shows of the year, playing at the Dramatic Club’s " House Beauti- ful " and the Gilbert and Sullivan Club ' s " Pirates of Penzance. " The orchestra also played in the State Music Festival, held at Wellesley on May 1 1. (Page One hundred Seven) Seated: B. Barrett, A. Turcotte, H. Farrow. J. Young, B. Schwamb. Standing: Ed.

S. football team had a successful season in 1939. The team defeated Winchester 13 to 0. lost 0 to 6 to Leominster, then came back to beat Newton 1 3 to 0 and Fitchburg 6 to 0. Malden ' s scrappy Golden Tornado, on its way to the state title, was stopped in a thrilling game which ended in a scoreless tie. Chelsea bowed to the Spy Ponders, 25 to 7, as did Waltham, 28 to 7, and Somerville, 7 to 0. The A. H. S. boys wound up the season by losing to Medford, 0 to 7, and Melrose, 7 to 13, in two exciting games. Al- though the team lost the traditional Thanksgiving Day game, the fellows showed excellent sportsmanship throughout the game. The team was coached by Fred Ostergren and his able assistants, John Carr and George Fusco. The outstanding players throughout the season were Co-Captain Ed Burns, Co-Captain Russ Isner, Captain-elect Art Blanchard, Bob Sanders, Brick Preston, and all-scholastic “Cud " Tobin. Those who received sweaters were “Brick " Preston, Frank Oliverio, Frank Holway, Dick Grant, Tom Connolly, Francis O’Connell, James Bina, Barney Manning, Wallace Flynn, John Burke, Arthur Knight, Ed Richards, Duncan Woodward, Paul Keefe, Warren Dale, and Manager Karle Rohde. Those to receive letters, having previously received sweaters, were Art Blanchard, “Cud " Tobin. Ed Burns, Russ Isner, Bob Sanders, Bob Battis, and Frank Femia.

Under the direction of Mr. Charles Downs, the Arlington High School hockey team has had a very successful season. The team placed third in the Greater Boston Interscholastic Ice Hockey League, one point behind Melrose and three points behind the winner, Newton. Led by Captain Bob Sanders the team won seven, tied two, and lost two. A football injury to Dick Grant and a nearly fatal injury to Bob Battis ruined the defense. Consequently, it was necessary to bring up Karle Rohde and Tom Connolly to work along with Francis Dwyer and Leo Wilson to give a very inexperienced defense. However, Karle Rohde proved so capable that he was picked for the league all-star team. Johnnie Spinner was nearly unanimously elected for the All-Scholastic team. Bob Sanders was chosen for the All-Scholastic team and Ed Burns, Karle Rohde, and Art Blanchard received honorable mention. Captain Bob Sanders and Ed Burns have a high standard of three years of excellent hockey playing throughout their high school years. Johnnie Spin- ner is one of the best goalies that A. H. S. has ever had. Don Moore, Art Rico, and Bob Ahern, all seniors, proved to be very effective as a second line. The prospects for next year’s team are dubious. The onlv lettermen re- turning are Captain-elect Art Blanchard, A1 Burns, and Francis Dwyer. Sweaters have been awarded to Dick Davis, Francis Dwyer, Leo Wilson, Don Moore, Art Rico, Bob Ahern, Roger Duffey, Jim Ofria, Frank Sullivan, A1 Burns, John Nugent, and Manager Edmund Geary. Letters were awarded to Johnnie Spinner, Tom Connolly, Karle Rohde, Captain Bob Sanders, Ed Burns, Captain-elect Art Blanchard, and to Bob Battis who was seriously injured in the Cambridge Latin game. (Page One Hundred Fourteen) The 1939-40 indoor track team, composed largely of green material, had a fairly successful season, winning from Watertown, while losing by close scores to Brockton. Brookline, and Medford. Outstanding were Quinn and Ryrholm in the high jump, Linekin in the shot, Belinowiz and Alexander in the sprints, Kelly and Flynn in the 300, and Campbell in the 600. In the state meet, Richard Quinn brought glory to A. H. S. by winning the high jump championship. The A. H. S. Cross Country team, captained by Richard Wells and coached by Mr. William " Doc ' ’ McCarthy, enjoyed a very successful season. The team, consisting of " Dick " Wells, " Bob Ahern. " Dick " Ryrholm, " Ken MacLeod, Wilmer Hayes. John McCullock. and Ellis Joy, won four meets out of five. As yet, no captain has been chosen for next year. The team was fortu- nate in having Dick Feresbetian for its manager. Prospects for next year are very good. The team raced against Wakefield, Quincy, Chelsea, Tufts Freshmen, and Brockton. Had the team won the race against Brockton, the championship would have been ours. We sincerely hope that future teams will do as good as the 1 940 team.

This year marks the beginning of a new club, a club never before formed in A. H. S. It is the Girls’ Athletic Association. The aim of this club is to get more support for girls’ athletics. In the past, the support of girls ' athletic teams has been lacking, and this year the girls decided to do something about it, so they formed this club. Already the club has over one hundred members, a remarkable number considering the length of time the club has been in exist- ence. This year the club has sponsored a moving picture show which was well attended by the members of the school and secured a little money for the club. Besides the faculty advisers, Miss McCarty and Miss Richardson, the club chose for its officers: President Vice-President Secretary T reasurer Jacquelyn Hession, ' 40 Catherine Powers, ’40 Patricia Hession, ’41 Jean Rooney, ' 41 (Page One Hundred Sixteen) C izil ' tB ai LtU[ Bad: Row: Coach McCarty, V.

Captain Helen Hamilton was forced out of play because of a fractured foot early in the season, but her place was capably filled by Harriet Smillie and Vera Wing. Forwards Eleanor Donovan and Kay Powers were exceptional in their positions and Mary Louise Newman, Josephine Bartholomew, “Tillie” Torngren, and Phyllis King as guards were outstanding.

This year the Arlington High School boys’ basketball team, coached by Mr. William Lowder and led by Captain Charles Glennon, won nine games and lost seven, giving the team third place in the Suburban League. Because of ineligibility, two capable men. Nelson King and Johnnie Burke, were un- able to play. Captain Charles Glennon and Captain-elect Tom Cotter, were chosen for the All-Suburban League team. Tom Cotter was picked by Chelsea for their all-opponent team. He was, also, chosen as highest scorer of the league. Charlie Glennon was chosen as third highest scorer. The prospects for next year are as follows: Tom Cotter, Joe Tobin, Johnnie Burke and his brother Dave Burke, who is a prospective candidate from Ju nior High School. Sweaters have been awarded to Joe Tobin, Dick Ryrholm, Franny Sim- onds, and Manager James Ryan.

This year ' s team, coached by Miss Katherine Mc- Carty and led by Captain Edna Sullivan, looks forward to a successful season. The veterans include " Kay” Powers, Eleanor Donovon, Jacquelyn Hession, Vera Wing, Jean Rooney, and Margaret Coyne. In our enthusiasm for the veterans, we have overlooked the very promising sophomores who, we know, will do much to bring success to that team.

This year the team, coached by Mr. Russell S. Wallace, admits two new schools, Waltham and Malden, to its list of opponents. The boys face a heavy schedule: fourteen matches, three each week, beginning April 29 and continuing through May 29. The candidates having just been called out as we go to press the makeup of a team is uncertain. The only veterans from last year ' s team are Milton Paige and Creighton Tenney. Mr. Wallace expects that the new members will prove capable of upholding the reputation the A. H. S. tennis team has made in past years. (Page One Hundred Tweniy-one) Back Row: F. Simonds, J.

The golf team of 1940, under the direction of Mr. Arthur Robinson, looks forward to a successful year. As we go to press the candidates have just been called out. The veterans include Frannie Simonds, Walter Wilcox, Dick Grant, and Jack Harvey. Prospective candidates are John Bullock, Joe Tobin, Dick Ryrholm, Johnnie Burke, Paul Robbins, Dick Bradley, and Fred Ferry. This year the team is again a member of the Greater Boston Interscholastic Golf League. The A. H. S. team has led this league for the past five years with one exception, and that time it placed second behind the winner, Newton. The boys will tee off against such teams as Brookline, Lexington, Newton, Wal- tham, and Watertown. Mr. Robinson expects to produce a good, all-round team which will rank high among the top teams. We wish the A. H. S. golf team the very best of success. (Page One Hundred Twenty-two) ' JIU I ottdn a i ozc Under Miss Harriett R. Pennell’s excellent tutelage and supervision, the lunchroom force has this year again executed the monumental task of being mid- dlemen between Kitchen and hungry students. I his year new cash-regis- ters were installed in the cafeteria, and the old cry of ”1 ickets” has been sup- planted by constantly ringing cash-register bells (indicating, we hope, mount- ing sales) . Twice each morning, the “forgotten men of the lunchroom squad, as they have been termed, go to the lunchroom from classes where comparative peace reigns. Steeling their nerves for the fray, and holding a quivering finger over the wrong key on the cash-register, they wait at attention for the bell which signals the oncoming rush of starved students. And then begins the rhythmic ringing of bells, the clashing of dishes, the jingling of coins, the gen- eral hubbub of that misnamed period of rest, the recess, until before even the lunchroom boys themselves realize it, the hungry multitude had been fed.
