Many have gone far beyond the call of duty in helping us along in our high school careers, and it is impossible for us to express our gratitude to them. Mr. Eaton is an outstanding example of these teachers. Not only has he extended a helping and ever-welcome hand to those struggling over the hurdles of advanced math, but he has devoted much extra time to assist students prepar- ing for College Entrance Examinations. With his clear, careful explanations, his unending supply of patience, his fairness to all and his never-failing sense of humor, he made math an intriguing, yet interesting and satisfying subject, and the high spot of many a student’s day. He maintained a flattering interest in the personal triumphs and disappointments which arose in the school lives of his students and lent a sympathetic ear to any and all who needed his under- standing and advice. We Seniors are forever indebted to him for his assistance in the produc- tion of our Year Book. Between the pens of the writers and the printer’s fin- ished product there is a gap which can be satisfactorily filled only by such a capable business manager. For this work well done, we express our sincere thanks. In appreciation of the splendid service he has rendered as our teacher, helper, adviser and friend, we, the graduating class of 1950, affectionately dedi- cate our Year Book to Mr. Douglass L. Eaton.

He has acted as the pivot, the mainstay, of our entire organization. Scarcely a day passes without our realizing the tremendous debt we owe to him for keeping things running smoothly, for instigating progress when progress should be made, for holding youthful ideas in check when enthusiasm over- came better judgment. With wisdom, intelligence, and fairness he has guided our activities through our high school days. Not only has he shown a keen interest and pride in our mental progress and achievements, but also in the progress and achievements of our athletic teams, our clubs, and other extra-curricula groups. His commendation is reward enough for the efforts we make to bring credit and honor to our school. With sincere conscientiousness, our principal has never failed to work for our interests and for those of the school. We, having arrived at the ma- turity of our Senior year, can now more clearly see the good judgment which has tempered his decisions all through our high school careers. With heartfelt thanks for all that he has done for us, we, the graduating class of 1950, express our sincere appreciation to our principal, Raymond S. Morrill. RA ' iMOND S. Morrill Through the Years On a clear, cool September morning in 1947, we, the class of ’ 50 , came to school very early, perhaps because " There’s safety in numbers,” and we wanted to face the ordeal together. This, however, we found unnecessary as Mr. Gammons welcomed us to high school and made us feel at ease. We were glad to meet new friends, enter new fields of activity, and begin the last phase of our public schooling. Our first major problem was to learn the technique of high school life. Most of us knew where we were and knew where we wanted to go, but none of us knew how to get there. { i. e. none but those upper-classmen who told us we should take the elevator. ) However, we learned; and by our junior year we had learned well enough to direct the newest comers to the elevator. The football team marked the first date on the sports calendar losing to Medford, Newton, Everett, and Lynn Classical. They came back strong to wind up with a rec- ord of five wins and six losses, the wins including a victory with a comfortable margin over Melrose on our home grounds. Our track team did nothing to harm " Doc” McCarty’s already fine reputation, and the basketball team, after a poor start, finished up with a good twelve and four record by amassing an impressive string of victories at the end of the season. The hockey team, after taking the G. B. Page Twelve I. crown for the second time in a row, looked as if it might repeat all the way and take its second straight New England title. However, after beating Hyde Park, they lost out to a strong Malden Catholic team. " Tomorrow the World” was presented by the Dramatic Club, and scored a big hit. The Gilbert and Sullivan Club scored an equally great success with its talent-laden production of the " Gondo- liers.” As spring rolled around, the weeks sprinted toward final examinations and vacation. After much perspiration and waiter’s cramp we were Juniors. The vacation passed with incredible rap- idity and we were back for another ses- sion. Upon return we were saddened by the loss of the popular, outstanding his- tory teacher. Miss Bessie Conway, a forty- year veteran of the Arlington Public Schools. Also Mr. Gammons’ familiar " May I have your attention, please?” was replaced by the somew ' hat similar saluta- tion of Mr. Raymond S. Morrill, already known to us as assistant principal. Of course, we were very sorry to see Mr. Gammons leave us, but we were, at the same time, happy to welcome Mr. Morrill to his new post. Again the football team started the year along. This time they won over Newton — but three losses and a tie made things look pretty bad. Then the boys caught fire and won the last four includ- ing a 15-6 victory over Melrose. Re- sults — five wins, three losses and a tie. " Doc’s” harriers established supremacy by running away with the State cross coun- try title. Dave Gott came in second as the team scoring went: Arlington 58, Lasalle 67, and Manchester, Connecticut, 104. This year the hockey team grabbed the sports spotlight by skating off with the New England title at Providence after they had won in the G. B. I. league play and the " Met” tourney. Likewise the Junior Prom waltzed off wn ' th the social spotlight. The Town Page Thirteen Hall was gaily dressed lor this gala event and all who went enjoyed it very much. Alter blonde Jayne Dorian stole the judges’ eyes and was crowned c]ueen, the dance broke up and all were off for points be- yond. The Dramatic Club staged the " Divine Flora” as again Mrs. Matthews produced a hit performance. The Town Hall was filled with parents and friends who went away happy about the plot and its de- nouement. The Gilbert and Sullivan again kept pace, this time deviating from its customs by producing Oscar Straus’ " Waltz Dream.” The year was completed with the finals. This time we went away rejoicing of hav- ing seen the end of final examinations in high school. Back we came ready for our last year of public education. Coming back to a long list of friends and acquaintances is always an enjoyable duty even if it does mean another ten months of home work and report cards. Now we are Seniors and are entitled to the privileges and re- port cards thereof. We elected our class officers, Glen Pet- erson, Adcle Dengeleski, Barbara Ryan, Page Fourteen and Edward Cahaly, under whose leader- ship we are having a wonderful year. Our football team went through nine straight games without a tie or defeat. By beating Melrose, we can boast that when we entered A. H. S., the traditional Arling- ton vs. Melrose series was all tied up; but when we leave, there will be a margin of three wins. After their perfect season, the team was invited to play in the C. Y. O. bowl game at New Orleans. Thanks to the generosity of Arlington’s popula- tion, they were able to accept. In spite of the climatic change, the long trip and the fact that they faced one of the best high school backs in the country, they put up a great game and fought hard for New England football prestige in the South. The hockey team thus far has a record of two wins and two losses keeping alive a mathematical chance of repeating their conquests and defending their champion- ships. The Dramatic Club is frantically pre- paring for its staging of the hilarious comedy, " You Can’t Take It With You.” It is deviating from its custom of alter- nating between comedy and heavy drama. The Gilbert and Sullivan Club is doing likewise by preparing a Variety Show. The entire senior class is looking for- ward with eager anticipation to its Senior Prom and Banquet to be held at Norum- bega’s Normandie Room and Totem Pole Ball Room. If last year’s Prom is any indication, it is bound to be a tremendous success. Although we are through with final exams in high school, many still must face Page Fifteen Scholastic Aptitude and College Board exams. Our high school careers have been full of hard work and good fun. We shall graduate in June sad because w ' e leave old friends and scenes, but happy because we had such fun and face an even greater op- portunity to make friends and profit by our high school education. It is our duty to our country and to the world to make good and do good. As we face the challenge before us, we shall feel the security of a good background and heartfelt gratitude to those who made it possible. Nathan Wood.

At last the long-awaited game with Warren Easton High, which they had earned as a result of winning the State Class A Champion- ship, was at hand. It didn’t take us very long to find the dining car and after a hearty breakfast, we settled down to reading and playing cards which, interspersed with more meals, oc- cupied the rest of the day. Night found us anticipating our first experience in a sleeping car. After jumping from one sleeper to another for about two hours, we finally became exhausted and settled down for the night. The next morning we were awakened promptly at six thirty, got off the train, and ran for about five miles. This was just a small bit of our training. Having spent that day and night on the train, we finally reached New Orleans our third morning out of Boston. We were cor- dially welcomed there by the C. Y. O. officials, and boarded a bus bound for the Jung Hotel. Once at the hotel, we had breakfast and immediately went up to our rooms to unpack. We were " on our own” for about three hours that morning to take in all the famous spots in the illustrious old city; but Canal Street, the largest business street m the world, was first on our list. Fol- lowing this excursion we had another practice from 12:30 to 5:30, after which we went to Antoine’s, the most famous restaurant in the world, and enjoyed a de- licious dinner. The following morning we took a de- lightful boat ride up the Missis sippi River — and, of course, had practice that after- noon; but Friday night was a quiet one, spent in the hotel. Saturday morning we went out and shopped around for souvenirs from this memorable trip. After this we had a light practice and went out Saturday night for just a short time as the day for the big game was just ahead of us. Sunday morning we all attended the Mass celebrated at the beautiful Cathe- dral, which was followed by a delicious steak dinner. The game was next on the agenda. Al- though defeated by a score of 26 to 13, we nevertheless had the satisfaction of knowing we had played a good game, fought hard and fairly, and done our New Orleans, La..

TtnUfL level best. After resting up, we saw movies of this famous game which Coach " Toz” had taken, which we enjoyed im- mensely. At exactly eleven o’clock, we boarded the train for the long ride home. Atlanta, Georgia, Washington, and New York City were cities in each of which we spent a full, educational and very pleasant day. Upon arriving home, we were given a very gracious and enthusiastic welcome by our fellow students at the station, and w ' e all appreciated whole-heartedly their en- couraging support. We can never fully express our grati- tude to Mr. Morrill, to the School Com- mittee, and to the loyal citizens of Arling- ton who gave us permission and the finan- cial ability to make this never-to-be-forgot- ten trip.

I imagine some will become big game hunters, so I’m going to give them a few hints. If it’s lions you’re after, the thing to do is to get a wire mesh. You take this to the Sahara Desert, and put as much sand on it as you can. Then you shake it, the sand will go through the mesh, and the lions will re- main on top, for there are many lions in the Sahara. You may also get some Arabs and camels but if you can’t use them, let them go. To hunt tigers, you take the wooden cover of a barrel and a hammer. You go to any jungle and walk about till you find a tiger. Then you say " Grrr ....!” The beast will probably answer the same and jump on you with its sharp nails out. You hold up the barrel cover and these nails will pierce it. Then you quickly rivet them with the hammer. The tiger is then securely held, and you can take it home. This system is also good for panthers and cross women. If you want some crocodiles, you need a boat, a straw hat, and a hammer. ( The one you used for the tiger is all right but anything heavy will do.) You take this equipment to the Amazon River in Brazil, and float the hat in the water. The croco- diles will think that under the hat there is a little Negro boy swimming, and will come to devour him. You are right there in the boat with your hammer. When the crocodile approaches, you overwhelm him with a sharp rap on the cranium, haul him into the boat and take him home. A Mouse Trap? Another method for catching game you can practice right at home with an open book and some honey. You put the honey in the book and when a fly comes to eat it, you slam the book shut. With this sound advice, I’m sure the class of 1950 will produce some of the best big game hunters ever. ( But if you should ever go to the home of a friendly elephant for easy tips on how to catch people, be careful lest you step on his val- uable living room rug — a rare speciman of wild Alonso. ) William Alonso.

Members of this committee were chosen for their writing ability, popularity, and reliability. Chris Card was assigned the post of Editor-in-Chief and was ably assisted by twenty-four of her fellow students. Faculty advisers were Mrs. Moffatt and Mr. Eaton, from whom the committee received invaluable help, guidance, and suggestions. Everyone connected with the Year Book spent many long hours engaged in making its production the great success that it is. Perhaps the most difficult problem to be solved was that of including something in the Year Book that no previous class had featured. Besides finding this " Something new,” review- ing the accomplishments of the students through the years, summarizing club activities, selecting photographs and sketches, arranging sections, and tabulat- ing " Who’s Who” were all tasks made light by many hands. The labors of these faithful young journalists will certainly be made worthwhile if the rest of the Seniors are satisfied and pleased with what they have accomplished. We know that their monument to the Class of ’50 will always help to remind us of the fun and friends we had in Arlington High School.

Ache. In order to maintain proper harmony between the student body and the faculty, there must be a group of representatives to express the views and opin- ions of the students. This year, our Student Council carried out this purpose very well. Many new suggestions and ideas were presented by the council for the general improvement of Arlington High and its students. The lunch room program, originated by the previous year’s council, was further endorsed by this year’s members. Christmas music was played in the lunch room through the efforts of Nancy Ham, one of the Junior members. As usual, the Student Council with the class officers took charge of the proms. In December, cloth- ing was sent to needy Kentucky school children. During this same month, six Junior delegates attended a conference in Melrose and returned with many new and invigorating ideas. Indeed, the Student Council led an active year. Members of the elected council choose their own officers. Through the leadership of these capable officers, the Student Council had a successful and harmonious year.

We Seniors, as we look back through our high school social events, dis- cover that the " Rec” dances every Friday night have taken up a good deal of our time. In the fall of 1947, we attended the " Rec” dance for the first time, feel- ing quite grown up to be dancing to a real orchestra, " The Arcadians.” We shall always remember the fun we had at the weekly dances, meeting and chatting with friends and the many nights we slaved so hard working at the " coke bar.” The Sadie Hawkins and square dances will always stand out as some of the best dances of the years. For these successful dances we are greatly indebted to the Arlington Auxiliary Police, by whom they are sponsored. We must not forget, how- ever, Mrs. Grannan, who gave up her time during the summer of 1949 to re- hearse with the new " Arcadians” of 1949, made ud of high school boys and girls. Mr. Johnson, our faculty adviser, and Dorothy Johnson, the president of the committee, did a fine job to make the dances interesting, varied, and suc- cessful this year.

Always at hand to brighten assemblies or other school affairs with its splendid music, the orchestra will be a cherished memory of the Seniors of Arlington High. The 1949 Christmas Assembly, produced by the orchestra, stands out brilliantly as one of the high spots in this year’s school program. Instead of the annual production of a Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta, " The Blue Star Broadcast” was a dazzling success with much credit due to the superb efforts of the orchestra. Whether performing for the Arlington Women’s Club or assisting the Dramatic Club in their play, the orchestra provided its audiences with a great deal of musical pleasure. Those in the orchestra are deeply indebted to Mr. Einzig for his everlast- ing patience and the excellent training they received in the more difficult se- lections.

The great number of good student reporters and the cooperation among staff members and faculty advisers made possible many interesting issues of the Arlington High School student publication, The Chronicle. Each class, Sophomore, Junior and Senior, had an issue devoted to it. There were the features of a record column which could predict hit platters as well as review current favorites; a widely-read gossip column, " Scene Around”; a column which inquired about and then reported on student opinion; " Intro- ducing,” where one might guess the identity of a classmate from a short de- scription; and reports on each of the many club activities. In addition to the regular features, sports reports, and news items which were published in the paper, the Chronicle made news by sponsoring a successful square dance on No- vember 10, where many A. H. S. students enjoyed dancing polkas, the schot- tische, and squares to the caller’s instruction. For fun and features, the Chronicle of 1949-1950 will be difficult to surpass. Page Eighty FINE ARTS CLUB Front Row (left to ri ht) : T. Whitman, S. Keith. J. Townsend, H. Hughes, M. Petei s. Hack Row: A. Dudley, H. Alonso, H. Norman. E. Sheehan, Mr. Coletta. This year, the Fine Arts Club was limited to Juniors, Seniors, and those planning to attend an Art School. Mr. Coletta decided on this policy because he felt the club could accomplish a great deal more by thus limiting the mem- bership. The purpose of the club was to work on advanced drawing and painting. The students planning to attend Art School worked on their port- folios, and, along with the others, carried out problems in medians which the regular school program does not allow ' . These medians w ' ere clay, w ' ood and pastels; the pupils also used the regular class materials such as poster paint, w ' ater colors, and ink. The club had a very successful year due to the com- bined efforts of Mr. Coletta and the enthusiastic members. Page Eighty-one DRAMATIC CLUB President, Barbra Mills Secretary, Thelma Whitman Vice-President, Barbara Ryan Treasurer, Nathan Wood Assistant Secretary, Phyllis Kilmer The Dramatic Club of A. H. S. has given us three years of splendid drama and entertainment. The 1947-48 season saw an excellent play based on World War II called " Tomorrow the World,” the story of a Nazi youth brought to this country to be Americanized. All who saw this production were impressed with the talent it revealed among the students who participated. The following year the club presented a light comedy entitled " The Divine Flora,” which was equally well-received. One of the members of the class of ’50, Jean Dorian, had the honor of portraying the lead — a wall-flower who is transformed into the star of the social season. The grand climax came this year with the presentation of Moss Hart’s and George S. Kaufman’s " You Can’t Take It With You,” an uproarious com- edy with a record Broadway run. Starring in the cast were " Barb” Mills, " Bob” Brown, Ronald Forbes, and Jack Cox, ably assi sted by Ted Okerlund, Charles McEwen, Frank Vento, and Nathan Wood. The wonderful success of " You Can’t Take It With You” provided a grand finale to the three years during which we have enjoyed the best in light and serious drama.

Those who serve on property and staging committees, on ticket committees, as ushers and candy sellers, and in publicity groups also get ample reward. Other less active members enjoy watching their more gifted classmates perform in skits and pantomimes at the monthly meetings. We are certainly grateful to Mrs. Matthews and Miss Manning who have given time, energy, and patience to make the Dramatic Club one of the largest and most popular of all A. H. S. organizations. Although only in its fourth year, the A. H. S. Latin Club has become one of the more renowned and noteworthy clubs of the school. Composed wholly of fourth year Latin students, its purpose is to broaden the student ' s under- standing of and interest in Roman life, culture and literature. Demonstrations and talks are frequently given which illustrate the key points of classical cul- ture. One of the highlights of the recent social program was a party commem- orating the birth of Virgil, the poet, with whose work the class has spent most of the year. Museum tours, individual reading, and research are planned, along with many other interesting and informative opportunities for the stu- dents. The soundness and thoroughness of the club’s inspirations are evident in the number of students who go on to develop their cultural interests in the ad- vance of their academic work. Credit for a great measure of this inspiration must be attributed to the ever-delightful and capable direction of Miss Dorothy Rounds.

Though it may not be realized at the time, the weekly speakers at the meetings are helping themselves to overcome self-consciousness, to improve their diction, and to present their views in a most clear, concise, and comprehensive manner.

In the past years, the club has presented many thrilling performances such as " The Mikado,” " Ff. M. S. Pinafore,” and " The Pirates of Penzance.” In 1948, " The Gondoliers” was offered, and the members of the class of ’50 were just beginning to show their capability in the singing, dancing, and dramatic fields. Last year, " Waltz Dream” by Oscar Strauss, was given, with some of the members of the class of ’50 taking leading roles. Among these were Maralyn Smith, Ronald Forbes, Frank Vento, Mary Stahl, and Sally MacDon- ald. Although this production broke away from the Gilbert and Sullivan tra- dition, it was, nevertheless, thoroughly enjoyed by the cast and appreciated by large and enthusiastic audiences. This year " Blue Star Broadcasts” will be presented. This will take the form of a radio production with a great deal of ’50 talent and imagination scattered throughout. Under the able guidance of Mr. Einzig and Mr. Russell we are sure it will prove a grand success. The members of the large Gilbert and Sullivan organization can never forget the wonderful times they enjoyed in rehearsal, the fun of trying on cos- tumes, the rigors of being " made up,” the stage fright and excitement on open- ing night, the back stage hilarity, and the marvelous final parties. We’re sure no Broadway production could afford such good times as those enjoyed in the operettas put on by the A. H. S. Gilbert and Sullivan Club.

The Camera Club has once more ended a year of profitable photography, worthwhile not only in experience but in service to the school. Along with many and varied field trips taken, members of the club covered all football games and many other sporting events, and turned out some excellent photos for the Chronicle and for display. Also in the line of display, the club pro- cured and showed the entries of the Kodak High School Photography Contest. Among the trips taken, outstanding were the tour of the Bachrach Stu- dios to see their photographing and processing methods, and a trip to Old Sturbridge Village. Here they took many pictures of the colonial village in replica and displayed the fruits of their efforts for the student body. The club has once more succeeded in its aim to make photography more fun and at the same time more profitable. Page Eighty-seven THE LUNCHROOM BOYS Front Row (left to rijrht) : R. Murphy. R.

The lunchroom boys were a select group of Senior boys, chosen for their honesty, business ability, and reliability. Under Miss Campbell’s capable supervision, they helped to speed the students of A. H. S. through the lunch- room lines. They ran the cash registers, and handled every cent received in the cafeteria. Sacrificing five study periods each w ' cek, " Bob” Dahill, " Fred” Rose, " Dick” Bussey, " Herb” Whitney, " Al” Caterino, " Bill” McCall, " Don” Dalrymple, " Bob” Dalahy, and " Joe” Halley maintained a high rate of efifi- ciency in the lunchroom at all times. They all agreed it was a great deal of fun and said they enjoyed the responsibility. These boys became an integral part of our school life. George Flynn was treasurer of the lunchroom and was regarded by the faculty as one of the most capable boys to hold this position. We all know that the business background obtained in the lunchroom will help these boys to be successful in their future careers. Page Eighty-eight GIRLS’ GLEE CLUB President, Mary Stahl Secretary, Carol Grundy There are few groups at A. H. S. more harmonious than the Girls’ Glee Club. Both musically and socially, the girls find it easy to get along together when under the influence of this splendid organization. Monday has been the usual meeting day and many girls from all three classes reserve it for s inging. Under the capable leadership of the director, Mr. Russell, they bring out many of the beautiful old standard ballads, Christ- mas carols and similar works for rehearsal. These rehearsals are much en- joyed by all for the melodies are familiar ones and all frequently appropriate to the season. However, the club does not refuse to share its pleasure w ' ith others. Very popular with the Arlington Women’s Club, it has put on several lovely pro- grams for them and also for the Teachers’ Club. They have in the past com- peted satisfactorily in the New England Music Festival but their most demanded services are for their own A. H. S. assemblies. By joining with male choristers they can then bring to life many beautiful anthems and difficult chorales. Although the finished performances are thoroughly enjoyed by both audience and participants, the girls agree that the informal rehearsals on Mon- day afternoon, where they and their leader may work out notes and interpreta- tion as freely as they wish, are tops for worth-while fun.

The cheerleatding squad for the 1949 football season was composed of twelve girls selected from the three classes. Freya Koger was chosen as head cheerleader and she proved herself very capable indeed. Little Joan Eadie came back for the second year as mascot. The cheerleaders, wearing their traditional maroon sweaters and gray skirts, were at every football game inspiring the players on to victory. Several successful rallies were attended by many enthusiastic students who enjoyed them immensely. It must have been a real thrill to have been a cheer- leader during the year the team was successful enough to earn a trip to the Sugar Bowl in Louisiana! Perhaps if the cheerleading squad had been at that game. New Orleans might have been defeated. There can be little doubt, in any case, that the girls’ sparkling smiles, graceful cartwheels and peppy cheer- ing were great morale-boosters to the Red and Grey line. Page Ninety-two G. A. A.

The Girls’ Athletic Association, better known as G. A. A., is one of the leading clubs at Arlington High School. It is composed of over one hundred girls who enjoy the many games, parties and activities sponsored by the club. Miss Garrity and Miss McCarty have helped immensely in making this club what it is. Under the able leadership of its officers, the G. A. A. has planned a pro- gram chock-full of activities. As usual in October, the initiation party was held. Following this, in November, was a gala Field Day. The rest of the school year will be filled with such events as ping-pong matches, a splash party, interclass sports, the Amateur Show, and the annual trip to Crane’s Beach. Through these parties and healthful indoor and outdoor activities, G. A. A. hopes to earn its reputation as one of the most successful and fun-filled clubs in Arlington High this year.

Despite the fact that the 1949 Girls’ Field Hockey team lost its first game to Concord, Miss McCarty’s girls came back to beat Melrose, Malden, and Lex- ington, although losing to Winchester and tieing Belmont. Adele Dengeleski, Sally Cooledge, Kitchie Reid, Jill Fraser, Eloise Jones and Aurora Kasparian combined their efforts on Arlington’s offense, while Rosamond Cameron, Marcia Decareau, Barbara Rennie, Pat Cochran, Mary McGowan, Carol Dale, and Mary Wallace protected the goal. Besides their scheduled season eames, the girls participated in the Field Day, sponsored by the Boston Field Hocky A.ssociation for all the high school allied members of the association. The ttirls held Middleboro, Dana Hall, and Malden to 0-0 scores, while they tied Duxbury 1-1. Best of luck to the 1 950 team! GIRLS’ TENNIS Fro ft How (left to right) : M. Sullivan, J. Aronson, M.

Three times a week you will find the girls’ tennis team practicing at the Spy Pond courts, in hopes of perfecting their strokes and techniques. They anticipate stiff competition this spring, but plan to be ready for it! The girls hope to make a good showing against such powerful teams as Malden, Belmont, Melrose, Winchester, Lexington and Watertown. The team of 1949 had an even score of three wins and three losses. With the able assistance of their coach. Miss Garrity, the girls hope to overcome their weak points, especially serves and placing the ball. Although many of their opponents are champs and have won medals at Longwood, our team show ' s great promise for a successful season ahead.

Behind Barbara Vaughn’s fine pitching, Barbara Watson, Ann Donahue, Kitchie Reid, Sally Cooledge, Helene Hughes, Barbara Clifford, Corinne Walsh, and Kay Crowley subdued Lexington, Belmont, Melrose, Wilmington, and Winchester, while suffering losses from only Malden and Concord. Since most of these veterans, plus some very promising sophomores, will be playing this spring, we know Miss McCarty will have a very successful 1950 team. Good luck, girls!

This year’s veteran basketball team, under the supervision of Coach Miss McCarty and managers Pauline DiSilva and Joan Howard, is headed for an- other certain success after the championship they earned last year. The promising line-up will consist of the active forwards, Sally Cool- edge, " Kitchie” Reid, and Helen Duffy. These players will be backed by a sturdy combination of Jill Fraser, " Roz” Cameron, and Adele Dengeleski. The girls are anxiously anticipating the coming season, and with last year’s excellent record in mind they are hoping for a repeat performance. Page Ninety-eight GOLF Kneeling (left to rijfht) : C. Fuller, L. Smith. Standing : Mr. Arthur, W. Rich, E. Woodis, F. Cam- eron, R. Hianchi, P. Arthur. The golf team, though not greatly publicized, has proven in the past three years to be one of our better athletic teams. In 1948, by winning all their scheduled games, they were proclaimed champions of their league, w ' hich included sixteen teams from schools of north- ern Greater Boston. The 1949 season saw a heart-breaking turn of events. The team didn’t lose a game, yet they w ' ere not declared champions though they had beaten the team that did receive the title. However, with good sportsmanship typical of A. H. S., Mr. Arthur’s boys resigned themselves to their loss with high hopes of compensating for it another year. This year, with Carl Fuller as the only veteran player, the team once more enjoyed an exciting and very successful season. Page Ninety-nine TRACK Front Jiow (left to right) : F. Danehy, W.

The indoor track team, coached by popular " Doc” McCarty, has completed another of its successful seasons. " Bob” Stevens, Fred Collier, and " Bill” Ken- eally led Arlington olf to a hne start by bringing the team to a brilliant victory over Rindge. In all the other events Arlington excelled with such superior trackmen as Frank Rindoni and " Red” Salisbury throwing the shot. Collier and Donnelly clearing the high bar, and Cronin and Griecci in the six hundred yard run. Coach McCarty should be duly proud of this compact product of his hard work; and the boys, of their addition to an already splendid record.

Under the very capable leadership of Coach " Doc” McCarty, the Arlington High cross country team has emerged with an excellent record. They won four out of five dual meets and rated second in the state meet. Co-captains " Bob” Stevens and " Ron” Wilson, with the help of " Fred” Collier and " Bob” Lafayette placed Arlington among the top cross country teams of the state. Next year, only a few of this year’s harriers will be back, but we wish them all the success of this and preceding years. Arlington is justly proud of the wonderful record set by this team!

Doyle, R. Kiley. E. Nugent. H. Leto, A. Paresky, Ed. Burns. Back Row: J. Roper, W. Wassal, W. Dickson, A. Patton, S. Cooledgej P. Bilafer, C. Carney, Having lost its great stars of ’47, ’48, ’49, Arlington’s hockey team never- theless remained at a high level of production. Since there were no excep- tionally outstanding stars, Arlington was strictly a hard skating, playing team. The first wave consisted of Bill Meehan, Don O’Brien, both great veterans, and " Boots” Bilafer. The second line was led by Bob Babine, with Bill Do- herty and Jack Kenny on the wings. The third line, who saw a great deal of action, too, featured Peter Cooney, Harvey Wyman with Scott Cooledge and Bill Vassil alternating at left wing. These three lines were so equally efficient that none can be classed better than the other two. All skated other teams literally into the ice. On defense. Bob Kiley, Willie Dickson, " Nobe” Tim- mins, and " Kootch” Patton helped form a well-balanced team. Gordon Rus- sell did an outstanding job in the nets. All success the team enjoyed this season was due greatly to the untiring efforts of Coach " Ed” Burns. Credit should also be given to Mr. Burke who helped the team win the second game when Coach Burns, Bill Meehan, Don O’Brien, and Paul Bilafer were at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. Page One Hundred Two BOYS’ BASKETBALL Front Row (left to right) : H. Stevens, J. Cosgrove, R. DeRosas, W. Shirley, C. Fuller. Hack Row: Mr. Lowder, D. Swanson, G. Peterson, S. Floyd, H. Bennett. In our three years here, we have seen some of the best in high school bas- ketball. To begin with, 1948 was the best season in many years with the team running up twelve wins against only four losses. The following year the team ended up second in league standing by pulling out of a slump early in the season and rising quickly to the top. Facing such teams as Woburn, Malden, Watertown and Rindge Tech, the team once again this year played a round of exciting and eventful games. With such stars as Glen Peterson, " Whitey” DeRosas, " Don” Swanson, " Bill” Shirley, and " Jack” Cosgrove, and " Sonny” Floyd, Bruce Stevens, and Carl Fuller assisting them, it is only logical that the team should be outstand- ing. These boys have the endurance, speed and skill which are the marks of real cham- pions; and their performance on the court is of typical A. H. S. excellence. BOYS’ TENNIS Arlington High School can be proud of a successful tennis team with an outstanding record. Much of their acknowledged success is attributed to long hours of practice under close supervision. Mr. Wallace has been tennis coach at Arlington High School for many years, and he has always succeeded in pro- ducing a superior group of athletes. Although the greater part of their vic- tories were accomplished in single matches, double match successes also helped to bring glory to the Arlington High School squad. Although not as well- publicized a sport as others at A. H. S., this year, nevertheless, many loyal fans attended the home games at the Spy Pond tennis courts. We hope that in the not-too-distant future, the boys tennis team will find its rightful place among the trophy-winning athletic groups of Arlington High School. Fn nt Rou ' (left to right) : A.

The varsity baseball squad had a successful season as usual. Coach Cavalieri inspired his boys to employ good sportsmanship and hard play on the field. The " Spy Ponders” waged victorious warfare both on the home field at Spy Pond and on foreign fields. Glen Peterson and " Bob” Hill threw from the mound. Behind the plate were " Bootsy” Bilafer and " Bill” Kenealy. " O’Bie” O’Brien, " Bill” Meehan, and " Jack” Cosgrove showed infallible field- ing on the diamond. " Ed” Cahaly and " Red” Salisbury covered the outfield with amazing fleetness. At the plate, almost any member of the team was capable of producing in the clutch. After the hard-hitting A. H. S. batters had piled up a two- or three-run lead, they could depend upon pitchers Peter- son and Hill to hold that lead with superb twirling. Captained by the able " Jackie” Cosgrove, the A. H. S. baseball team of 1950 will not quickly be for- gotten, for several of its stars are sure to make their mark in college and pro- fessional baseball. FOOTBALL The Arlington High School football team of 1949 was undoubtedly the greatest football team in the history of the school. As Class A co-champions, they brought honor and praise to our school, to their coaches, and to them- selves. Coach Toczylowski, with the help of Coaches Burns and Cavalieri, molded a group of relatively inexperienced Junior and Senior boys into the hardest-hitting, fastest-running team in the state! Arlington had one of the heaviest lines in schoolboy football this year, which contributed greatly to the team’s success. Linemen Roy Hill, Frank Rindoni, " Dick” Kelley, and " Al” Taterini weighed over two hundred pounds each. " Chile” Oppedisano, Larry Albertell ' . " Whitev” DeRosas, " Dick” Rockwell, Fred Tobin, and the able " Charlie” Dorrington gave additional power to our staunch forward wall. One striking examnle of the abilitv of our line is the fact that Warren Easton High gained onlv three yards rushing, in the first half of the Sugar Bowl game in New Orleans. " Tack” Cosgrove Quarterbacked the fast Arlington backfield. Other es- neciallv sneedv backc were " Don” O’Brien and " Red” Sal ' sburv. " Dick” Muel- lo did most of the line plunging. The outstanding defensive back was Paul " Pootsv” Bilafer. Taken together, this backfield was a smooth running, ef- ficient machine. P ' ront Row (left to rijrht) : P. Bilafer. F. Tobin, A.

The more outstanding of the team’s victories were their upsets over Waltham, 13-6; and over Water- town, 32-0. They fought valiantly against fatigue, extreme heat, and mud on Southern soil only to be beaten 26-13 by an inferior but well-rested Southern team. The trip to New Orleans and back will not easily be forgotten, nor will the accomplishments of this fine group of athletes. ' I » Capt. Frank Rindoni SKI CLUB President, Kenneth Tobiason Vice-President, Barbara Kane Secretary, Freya KoCtER Treasurer, David Crowley The first official meeting of the Ski Club was held on January 4. A spe- cial meeting was called on December 19th for the purpose of electing officers for the coming year. As last year, the club was handicapped in its activities because of the lack of snow. In the place of this, many excellent movies, ob- tained from the U. S. E. A. S. A., were shown placing stress on instructional films. The purpose of the Ski Club is to form an organization which will provide enjoyment and benefit for all ski enthusiasts, whether beginners or advanced skiers. All senior members will always remember their sophomore year, when with plenty of snow, many of them passed third class tests and re- ceived emblems. The trip to Brookline, N. H., was another enjoyable event that year. The club claims more than forty members of the student body. Front Ron ' (left to risht) : J. Chamberlain. F. Ko er, K. Tobiason. D. Crowley, B. Kane. M.

Page One Hundred Eight PROPHECY OF CLASS OF 1950 To the uninformed, we must say that the job of writing a class prophecy is a tedious one. In order to lighten our burden, we took it on ourselves to visit Swami Abdell Aboo, the prominent crystal-gazer. Once having arrived at his establishment, we were immediately ushered into his dim, dark sanctum by a swarthy gurkha. Gazing intently into his crystal ball, Swami Aboo be- gan to foretell the prophecy for the Class of 1950. " 1 see a very bright and successful future in store for this class. As the cloud disappears from my crystal, I see a large crowd jamming into Yankee Stadium for the I960 World Series to watch that great first baseman. Jack Cos- grove, in action against the New York Yankees. Coming out to entertain this anxious crowd, I see the Clown Prince of baseball, Kenny King, and his asso- ciate Stan Hamlet. After the head grounds-keeper. Bob Bunnell, has smoothed the infield down, I hear the faint strains of the Star-Spangled Banner from those three troubadours, Dick Van Iderstine, Ed Donnelly and Angie Ortalano. The game commences, and 1 hear the loud cheers of Jack’s most ardent fans, Martha Clancy, Marcia Decareau, and Mary Sullivan. In the row behind them, I see Jack Cox and his henchmen, Kevin O’Brien and Art O’Donnell, anxiously awaiting any suddent mishap. Oh! Yes, and there’s young Doctor Angus with his little black bag perched on the seat beside him. What is this I see — Rev. Nathan Wood, D.D., at a baseball game — how shocking! ! ! I hear a call of " Peanuts, Peanuts.” The voice is none other than Paul Cough- lin’s, that great peanut vendor. Here comes the head usher Clyde Coscia, graciously escorting Helene Hughes and Elbe Elcewicz, late as usual. But, back to the game. There’s a long fly ball brought down by baseball’s great outfielder. Bob Cunnane. Next up to bat is Bob Kiley, who wallops a home- run over the left field fence right into Wyman’s Beauty Salon, where I see Harvey skillfully giving Jean Trainor a manicure. Waiting her turn is the prominent Eleanor Kirchner, author of that famous column, " Advice to the Lovelorn.” I see — oh! my crystal has clouded. But wait, the cloud rises and 1970 comes into view. The scene is the beautiful ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria in which your class is holding a reunion. As the handsome Dick Rockwell and his lovely wife arrive in their limousine, Alan Ahern, the stately door-man bids them welcome. As they move on into the lobby, I notice to their left, flashbulbs snapping the talented Jean Dorion who has just won a National Page One Hundred Nine Award in art. In the main ballroom, dancers glide gracefully to the music of Murray Rosenthal and his Orchestra. As I look around, I see Karl Joel and Dot Johnson, Alma Larson and Paul Healy chatting with John Humphrey, the owner of a large cat food company. To their right is the notable fashion designer, Ann Dudley, asking Janet Gardiner if she had heard that Frank Rindoni had two sons in high school, who shunned all sports, especially foot- ball. The lights dim and into the spotlight steps Barb Ryan who now gives her rendition of Mairsy Doats. Following this, Tom Myers, another Bill Robinson, gives his fast tap routine of Sabre Dance. Last on the program is Ellen Cole who plays Happy Birthday to Betsy Lewis on her glockenspiel. As the evening draws to a close, 1 catch a glimpse of the wotld’s greatest ski jump- er, Carl Fuller, bidding farewell to his friends before leaving for his trip to Switzetland.” As the crystal ball clouds up again the Swami says, " 1 can’t seem to see any more, but all in all your class has a very promising future.” Nathan Wood, Ellen O’Neil. Janet Eield, Barbara Kane. Page One Hundred Ten I I HE OLD GRINDSTONE brings memories of another day and, in so doing, fascinates most of us.
