This year, we honor William T. McCarty, our unparalleled track coach. We who have had a more intimate association with " Doc” know him to be a true inspiration, counselor, and friend. All know him to be a coach par excellence, humorist, and gentleman. During the past half century, " Doc” has endeared him ' .elf to all — students and townsfolk alike. After coaching at Cornell, Tufts, Maine, and Ohio State, he came to Arlington in 1918 to lead our football, baseball, hockey, and track teams to numerous championships. Later, he devoted his entire efforts to his first love, track, where he has brought to Arlington national fame and above all has molded the characters of many boys by instilling in them true sportsman- ship, enthusiasm for the game, and the abilit • to take both victory and defeat gracefully. Rarely do age and youth combine so successfully. It is with great pride and appreciation that we, the Class of 1954, dedicate our Year Book to William T. " Doc” McCarty. Six and appreciative of, Mr. Raymond S. Morrill The principal of a high school, and especially of a large high school, is the liaison officer linking the combined efforts of groups and individuals into the cooperative enterprise termed modern education. To all organizations in the community he represents both faculty and stu- dent body. He also maintains a high level of human endeavor and physical efficiency from personnel and school plant respectively. Such are his leadership and philosophy that teach- ers and students are glad his life has touched theirs. All these things Mr. Morrill has done, and done both willingly and capably. We the Class of 1954, who have benefited so much from his efforts, take this opportunity to express the appreciation which he so richly deserves. And also, Mr. President Efficient? I’ll say so!

His sud- den death saddened all of us, for all knew him as one who could be depended upon. Only eighteen, he had yet to reach man- hood; this is perhaps the saddest part of his death. Although all miss him sorely, we are proud ro have known him. Bur now he has departed to a life of eternal youth. Eleven Whereas we have received the best training The Red Sox!- Ugh!

Orchestra Arlington High can be very proud of its fine orchestra, which is always available. This year’s orchestra, with its wonderful music, de- serves our greatest praise. The orchestra makes our assemblies more enjoyable with its musical offerings, and without its fine music the Gilbert and Sullivan Club show could not go on. The yearly combined concert of the Arlington and Winchester High School orchestras is a treat for all who are able to attend, while the annual Christmas assembly will long be remembered by all for its inspirational and spirited Christ- mas music played by the orchestra. Mr. Ein- zig, the capable director, will never be for- gotten, for he gave the members excellent train- ing and enabled them and us to enjoy many happy, musical hours.

T wenty-two The Chronicle Editor Robert Foley Assistant Editor Sylvia Ch’en We can well be proud of our school news- paper, the Chronicle. The day before the Chronicle is issued, traditional curiosity mounts as to what it will contain. Editorials, stories, jokes, articles, reports on school activities and sports, the ever popular " Scene Around,” and anything of special interest always can be found. The Chronicle serves as a medium to bring everyone in Arlington High School to- gether and promote interest in school activities. Those who work on the Chronicle Staff gain valuable experience on the publishing of a newspaper. Under the able direction of Mr. Sampson, faculty adviser, the members of the Chronicle staff deserve praise for a job well done. Dramatic Club brought Rear Row: F. Murray, L. Paz, H. Sulahian, R.

The Dramatic Club has enjoyed great success during our three years at A. H. S., both in its annual productions: ' Meet Corliss Archer,” in 1952, Our Miss Brooks,” in 1953, and " State Fair,” in 1954, and in its entries in the Northeastern Massachusetts Regional Drama Festivals. Mrs. Matthews and Miss Manning, with their helpful advice and wise coaching, made working on the plays fun for everyone. The actors, business, advertising, and pro- gram committees, backstage crews, and ushers, with their faculty managers, plus many mem- bers acting in no official capacity, but always on hand when needed, can all be proud of their contributions. Credit should also go to the club officers, including this year’s officers, Presi- dent Judith Kerivan, Vice-President Ann O’Rourke, Secretary Janet Mongeau, and Treasurer Carol Caterino. Other activities, especially the annual picnics at Craine’s Beach, have also provided us with lasting memories.

The ex- hilarating music and clever figures performed by members of the band at the football games have been extremely successful in arousing the spirit of the crowd and urging on the team. The band also helped a great deal in pro- moting the school spirit by playing at the vari- ous hockey and football rallies. Each year the high school band has com- peted successfully in the State Music Festivals. We know that with the capability and hard work of Mr. Hermance, our new director, our teams will be inspired to win greater victories in 1954. A. Lawton C. Sanders S. Coy J. Daijrle J. Peabody P.

" Rec ” Committee Chairman Eleanor Keefe Throughout the years, the ’Rec” dance has been the most outstanding of the social activities in high school. As seniors, we look back and remember the wonderful times we’ve spent there on Friday evenings. Making new acquaintances and getting to know the old ones better will long remain in our memories. We fully appreciate the efforts of Chairman Eleanor Keefe and her committee. Each and every member of the commit- tee has worked hard to make these dances run smoothly. Mr. Johnson has also ably advised us and contributed a great deal. The " Rec” is successfully sponsored and made possible by the Auxiliary Police of Arlington. They have provided us with the entertainment and record hops that we have enjoyed. We also pay tribute to the band, which has done a terrific job in supplying us with music for our dances. T wenty-five of our industry The Lunchroom The loud clang sounds and off we go, To this well-known spot we all love so. The lunchroom is a lively place As through its doors the starved mobs race. After racing down the crowded stairs. Only to find there are no more chairs. We hurry over to the line In clamorous haste to buy and dine. Tempus fugit, and soon we hear The scraping of plates upon our ear. Missiles o’ershoot the basket and fall — Like a distance shot in basketball. The lunchroom, cleared by our helpful boys. Is spick and span and devoid of noise. Until tomorrow sounds the bell That only can our hunger quell. by Oliver Sudden and Miss Ann Onymous. Rear Row: J. Simone, H. Steeves, W. Drinan, R. Await, J.

The Student Council President William La Belle Vice-President Priscilla Dale Secretary Janet Kirschbaum Treasurer Alan Wright The most outstanding extra-curricular activity in our high school is the Student Council. It consists of twenty-one representatives elected by their re- spective classes and one faculty adviser. The Council elects its own officers, and this year has chosen as its leaders Billy La Belle, President; Priscilla Dale, Vice-President; Janet Kirschbaum, Secretary; and Alan Wright, Treasurer. The Student Council is the most effective link between students and faculty, and is often consulted by both in matters that will produce a closer harmony. To serve on the Student Council is a most honorable and respected position. Each member is expected to accept the responsibility and leadership entrusted in him by his classmates. A sincere " Good luck " is wished to all future repre- sentatives in their endeavors by the graduating members of the 1953-1954 Student Council. T wenty- seven for the enjoyment Gilbert and Sullivan Club President Bruce Dalrymple Vice-President Bruce Reilly Secretary Lawrence Perry As in years past, the Gilbert and Sullivan Club’s production is bound for success. In the choice of " The Gondoliers, " the club is adhering to its tradition of presenting an operetta. The cast includes many of the same people who appeared in last year’s show, " H. M. S. Pinafore,” and the show of our Sophomore year, The Blue Star Review of 1952.” Under the able direction of Mr. L. Hassler Einzig, this year’s performance will no doubt equal those of the past. The enthusiasm on the part of everyone in the club, which is shown in producing a show of this sort, could not be more evident in the finest of professional groups. Surely the Gilbert and Sullivan Club members will look back with pride and joy at the wonderful times had in this outstanding group. Rear Row: P. Clark, C. Kendrick, C. O’Brien. R. Foley, S.

Girls’ One of the pleasantest and most worth-while groups at Arlington High School is the Girls’ Glee Club, which is under the direction of Mr. Hermance, a very popular newcomer at Arlington High. With this excellent leadership, the girls provide a great deal of enjoyment both for themselves and for those who are privileged enough and lucky enough to hear them. Their singing makes very pleasant listening, and it is regretable that the school in general has no real chance to hear them. Surely this is the only criticism of them which one could possibly make, however, and the girls themselves and all those who have heard them will long remember their performances with pleasure. T wenty-nine of those Class Will We, the Class of 1954, being of unsound mind and slightly sounder body, do declare this to be our last will and testament, and do direct that the bequests enumerated herein shall be carried into execution according to the Laws of the State of Insanity. Jack Cadagan, Eddie Casey and A1 Pitts leave their sparkling perform- ances on the hockey rink to future members of the A. H. S. hockey squad. To Mr. Eaton and Miss Barry we leave more horrible examples of the rising generation. Judy McLaughlin and Angela Pennio gladly leave Modern Dancing to Miss Willard. Bob Foley, Sylvia Ch’en and Phyllis Farrell leave The Chronicle to next year’s ambitious workers. Marcia Moltman leaves half her brains to any deserving Junior girl — she can spare them! The Cummings and Zaccardi twins leave a copy of their book, " How To Keep Them Guessing, " to Carol and Loretta Bellotti. Paula Slyva leaves her beauty crown to Eileen Callahan. Peggy Duffy and Nancy Robbins leave their rare collection of jokes to Janice Meehan. Betty Palmer, Jean Spence, Alina Ottoson, Ethel Bcagen, George Jamie- son, Charlie Kendrick, and Ginnie Hutchinson leave their chem notes and Mr. Miller (regretfully) to Charles Plummer, Bob Williams, Channing Zuck- er, Herbert Weber, Bob Baker, Alan Robinson and Mona Shute, for finals. Norman Peterson leaves his poise and all-around leadership to next year’s class President. Betty Center leaves — still talking! Alice McMahon leaves her love of sports to Nancy McLaughlin. Janet Higgins and Audrey Rcgut leave a cheerleading job to be filled. Thirty who will follow; Carole Jonah leaves her " screech” to haunt Mr. Lincoln. Betty Dolan and her field hockey team leave their bruises. Barbara Brandt leaves her seat in the orchestra to Bernadine Cosman. Billy LaBelle and Bob McSorley will the track team to " Moose” Muello and Tom Rockwell. To Tom McNeely, Don Seager leaves his capable leadership of the foot- ball team. Alan Wright and Barbara Mandis leave the crack in the Town Hall floor to any daring polka partners. George Cahaly leaves his winning ways and personality to any deserving Junior boy. Marilyn DeCosta leaves — -taking Billy with her. Bill Green leaves Miss Barry relaxing for the first time in two years. The driver-training students leave art annuity, payable in acorns, to Widow Squirrel. Joe " Snipe” leaves his popularity to Paul Turnbull. All the Latin students leave their Pogo library to Miss Rounds. Bob Porteus leaves his " crazy” antics to Chris Azadian. The Chronicle staff leaves Mr. Sampson a carload of yardsticks. Bill Moore, Leonard Tramonte, Dick Meehan, Ellen Chang, Kate Rich- mond, and Eleanor Keefe leave their " side-kicks” — with varying degrees of reluctance. Alina Ottoson leaves the difficult job of editing the Yearbook— well done and thanks, Alina! To the Sophomore Class, the Senior Class leaves the Junior Class — as shining? examples. And we, the authors of this will, leave at long last for a long-overdue cup of coffee. Thirty-one Autographs T hirty-two Mr, ' o have developed, Hack Row: “Doc” McCarty, W. Caldwell, G. Schultz, W.

Cross Country Team Co-Captains Robert McSorley, William La Belle This year’s cross country team competed in five dual meets and in the Divisional, State, and New England meets. This year’s co-captains, William La Belle and Bob McSorley, led the team to victory in three of the five dual meets. A heavy loss came after the first two meets when Co-Captain Bill La Belle was sidelined with a bad knee for the remainder of the season. Arling- ton defeated Haverhill, Belmont, and Salem. The team was beaten by Water- town, Beverly and Melrose, which were the top three teams in the league. Other senior mem bers of the team, who supported the team, were Hartley Noble, Frank Bryant, and Dick Mardigian. The team was ably managed by Alan Wright and coached by the greatest coach of all, " Doc’’ McCarty, who has coached many a championship team. In December the Annual Cross Country Banquet was held and ribbons were received by Bob McSorley and Frank Bryant for winning in the divisional and state meets. The team also presented " Doc” with a token of appreciation for his fine coaching. T hirty-four Football Captain Donald Seager This year though Arlington played many powerful Class " A” teams, we can justly say that it ended with a good record. With a few more breaks it would have had many more victories. The first game was against a fairly good Somerville eleven and it ended in a 12-12 tie. The next game Arlington exploded with a thumping 25-0 victory over a Class " C” Cambridge Latin team. The following game Arlington deprived Waltham of any possible Class " A” Championship recognition as it upset a powerful Waltham team by a score of 13-1.3. Other scores were Medford 12-12, Newton 0-13, Quin- cy 14-14, Lowell 0-26, Weymouth 26-48, and the last game with our traditional rival Melrose ended with Melrose springing an upset before an overflow crowd by a score of 9-6. With Captain Don Seager doing the bulk of the scoring, the credit should go mostly to the line. Some of the stalwarts in the line were center, Bob Kelly; guards, F. Lavalle, G. Gebow; tackles, Paul Doherty, Bill Strang, and ends, Chet Paris, Don Finlayson. The backfield consisted of Jack Cadagan, " Butch” Seager, " Moose” Muello, Bob Puddister, Dick Patterson, and Jim Flanigan. Although Coach ”Toz” has resigned, Arlington will always remember him as the only coach who ever had an undefeated season at Arlington. His able assistants were Jim Cava- lieri and Ed Burns.

Field Hockey Team Captain Betty Dolan This year’s field hockey squad consisted of sophomore Joan Doherty, vet- eran forwards, Angela Pennio, high-scorer Alice McMahon, Captain Betty Dolan, and Carole Noonan. A strong defense included Nancy McLaughlin, Margie Lowe, Janice King, Anne Cosgrove and Marcia Moltman, with veteran goalie Ellen Donovan. The season started with an impressive three straight wins over Concord 4-1, Malden 3-0, and Belmont 2-0. The winning streak ended with a heart- breaking 1-0 loss to Lexington but the team rallied its forces for a surprising 2-2 tie with a favored Winchester " eleven.” The squad also participated in the annual Field Day sponsored by the Boston Field Hockey Association and emerged undefeated with a record of two wins and a scoreless tie over Win- chester, Buckingham and North Shore Country Day School. Thanks to Miss Edgett’s excellent coaching and understanding, the girls enjoyed a very profitable season under her direction. T hirty-six The Cheerleaders The seniors of ’54 may well be proud of the school spirit which was promoted by this year’s cheerleaders. Wherever and whenever the football team needed encouragement, the cheer- leaders’ " Go, team, go” could be heard from all parts of the cheering section. This vivacious group of girls has spent the season cheering its teams home to victory. Sat- urday after Saturday the girls could be found on the football field, at the Boston Garden, or in the Arena, lending the various teams their wholehearted support. Yes, those red-and- gray colored figures deserve all sorts of credit for their splendid leadership. Recur Row: V. Alexander. Fifth Row: G. Mitchell, C. Keefe. Fourth Row: N. Robbins, E. Callahan.

The Girls’ Athletic Association has enjoyed a very successful year under the capable leadership of Barbara Warren and Miss Willard, the faculty ad- visor. Each year the G. A. A. lends spirit and en- joyment to the school as a whole. The initiation party, the fall field day, the Christmas party, the co-ed field day, the amateur show, and the trip to Lynn Beach are some of the numerous events the G. A. A. ofifers to its members. During the course of each year every member tries to get as many points as possible. At the as- sembly in June, the girls having the highest number of points are awarded the G. A. A. shield. The member who receives the most points has her name engraved on the G. A. A. plaque. No one will ever forget the grand times she had in G. A. A. President .... Barbara Warren Vice-President . . Janice Meehan Secretary Janet Higgins Treasurer Priscilla Dale T hirty -eight Hockey Team Co-Captains John Cadagan, Alvin Pitts Despite the fact that we have several excellent players, and a coach who was himself a hockey star, Mr. Burns, our hockey team has not met with very notable success so far this year. After tying their first game, with Cambridge Latin School, on December 12, the team went on to win a game with Stoneham, and then tied in an exciting game with our rival in many sports, Melrose. The next game, however, set an unfortunate precedent, as we lost to Belmont. This loss was to be followed by two more, the first to Medford, and the second to Newton, despite the best effort of the team, and especially of veterans Mike Barrett and Jackie Cadagan. Everyone will agree, however, that our boys played well, and all those who at- tended the games had plenty of thrills and excitement, and will be the first to say that we should be proud of our team.

Basketball Team Arlington High’s basketball team, with a reputation for victory to uphold, and a skilled and experienced coach, Mr. George Lowder, nevertheless opened the season with a disap- pointing defeat by losing to Waltham by a score of 73-56, despite the efforts of the team, and particularly of Dick O ' Connell, high scorer for Arlington, and Phil Riminiscenza. This was followed by a second defeat, 47-43, with Newton. Dick O’Connell again was high scorer for Arlington, with Mickey McLaughlin second. The next games were also defeats for Arlington, the third with North Quincy, and the fourth with Rindge. But there are still several games on the schedule to be played, and although we can’t hope to repeat last year’s capture of the Suburban League Championship, we are hopeful that our scores will improve greatly. Forty Girls ' Basketball Team Captain Joyce Bertrand The basketball team, under the capable supervision of Miss Edgett, is cer- tain to have a most successful season. Although we have lost many players through graduation, the team is coming along very well. We have some pretty good material. Our captain, Joyce Bertrand, is one of the most natural players we have ever seen. Backed up by other able players, she is sure to lead the team to vic- tory. Right now, as this article goes to press, the girls are putting in many hours of tedious practice in order to be in perfect shape for the coming season. hack Row: B.

Indoor Track Team Captain William LaBelle Arlington High’s indoor track team, coached by " Doc " McCarty, is living up to its reputation for outstanding scoring. In the opening meet of the season, with Watertown, the boys suffered a heartbreaking loss, 39 2 3-37 1 3, after holding the lead until the last event. Individual Arlington players did very well, however, with John Murphy winning the 300, Billy LaBelle the 600, and Bob McSorley the 1,000, while Rockwell won the shot put. Arlington boys also placed second and third in several events. In the second meet, however, Arlington beat Belmont, 46-31, with Murphy winning the 300, LaBelle the 600, McSorley the 1 ,000, and Dick Leonard the mile. Again several other boys earned second and third places. We are confident that is the first of a series of wins. Forty-tuo Modern Dance A quick look at the illustration above is sufficient proof that the Modern Dance Group gives its members added grace, poise, and attractiveness. The girls also learn a great deal about music appreciation. Under the capable guidance of Miss Willard, they first learn basic steps and motions, which are later incorporated into dances. Miss Willard herself has created several very clever original dances, which the girls perform. In addition, each year they present a special interpretive or humorous dance for each Christmas assembly. " Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” one of this year’s selections, was espe- cially well received by the school. Surely those girls who have been fortunate enough to be in this group will not soon forget the fun they have had, nor lose the grace they have ac- quired.

Girls ' Softball Team Captain Alice McMahon The softball team this spring has ample means of surpassing those of past years. The team is under the efficient coaching of Miss Edgett and has very good managers. This year’s schedule is a tough one. Each game will be a fight. When we meet our " rivals,” Win- chester, I am sure we will make up for our few bitter defeats of the past. Pitcher Alice McMahon is our captain. Last year’s team is intact, so we have all veteran players. However, there are many good sophomores who have signed up. Some outstanding ones are those who played for Saint James’s C. Y. O. team, which was de- clared the champion of New England last summer. The competition for positions should be pretty keen. So you can see that this exceptional material plus Miss Edgett ' s superb coaching guarantees a championship team. Forty-four Golf Club Captain Richard Leonard One of Arlington High’s less widely publicized teams is the golf team. This team, which is made up of nine boys, all ardent golfing fans, and their able and popular coach, Mr. George Lowder, came through with a championship team last year. We are all hoping that this year ' s team will be equally skillful and fortu- nate, and will bring back another impressive list of vic- tories, thus adding yet another glory to our Senior year. But whether their efforts this year are rewarded with comparable success or not, we know that the boys on the golf team will feel that their time has been spent both profitably and enjoyably.

One of the most successful but least publicized sports at Arlington High is tennis. Under the able and patient supervision of Miss Willard, the tennis team begins its practices in the fall at the Spy Pond courts. The practices are held once or twice a week or as often as the girls feel is necessary. With the coming of winter the team goes indoors and the gym becomes its courts. In the spring the team is chosen and the actual games with other schools begin. Last year the team was quite successful, winning three games and losing four. This was quite remark- able since the team had not been able to practice out- side before its first game. With graduation the team lost several of its star players, but fortunately many of last year’s juniors and sophomores show indications of being able to follow in the footsteps of those who have graduated. Best of luck to this year’s tennis team. Tennis Team Forty-six our minds, The Chess Club is a comparatively new organization at Arlington High School. It is an entirely informal club, lack- ing officers and any form of organization, and consisting really only of a group of students wanting to play chess. It meets every Friday afternoon under the direction of Mr. Sampson, the faculty advisor. This year, for the first time, our Chess Club entered a team in the Greater Boston High School Chess League. Since Arlington had entered no team previously, and this team would be playing, for the most part, skilled opponents, no great hopes were held for victory. As expected, the team did win only a few of its fourteen odd matches. This year was a very important one for the Chess Club. Its membership increased sharply with a large number of nov- ices who wished to learn " the royal game,” and it laid this year the foundations for its future years’ tournament play. Bach Row: T.

Composed of those students taking fourth year Latin, it strives to broaden the student’s under- standing of Roman life, literature and culture. Class discussions, lectures and demonstra- tions, along with educational Latin entertain- ment, liven our meetings and make them in- formative and enjoyable at the same time. Mu- seum tours and individual reading and research are among the many interesting opportunities for members. Evidence of the club’s sound influence on its members is the number of students who furth- er their cultural interests in advanced academic work. Much credit should be given to Miss Dorothy Rounds, under whose capable direction the Latin Club flourishes as one of the most note- worthy dubs in A. H. S. Forty-eight Consul primus Ned Dever Consul secundus Barbara Johstin Scriha Marcia Moltman So at ludorum Janet Kirshbaum Natalie Roghaar and The A. H. S. Book Reviewers, organized in 1952, is one of the newest clubs at A. H. S. Composed of approximately twenty-four student and two adult mem- bers, we function without benefit or impediment of constitution or strictly dictated procedure. Despite the many changes in membership and meetings during the past two years, we have managed to maintain an at- mosphere of comradeship and informality. Meetings resemble an informal or even accidental get-together of old friends, with the ordinary rules of conversation replacing parliamentary procedure. The variety of books and of other topics which we discuss in connec- tion with individual books provides something for everybody — and for every mood.

The Fine Arts Club President Lawrence Perry Vice-President Alma Porter Secretary Francis Bryant Treasurer Avis Keyes The Fine Arts Club, under the skilled and wel- come direction of Mr. Coletta, is composed largely of students intending to pursue a career in the fascinating field of art. Here, we each have an excellent oppor- tunity to specialize in the mediums that interest us particularly. A few of these media are oil painting, sculpturing, modeling clay and sketching. The club’s varied program has stimulated an avid interest among the students at A. H. S., which insures increasing popu- larity in the coming years for this relatively new club. It has provided a great deal of fun and experience and many pleasant, lasting memories for us, its Senior mem- bers. Fifty The Camera Club, which, like its cousin, the Fine- Arts Club, is under the capable direction of Mr. Joseph Coletta, Arlington High School’s favorite art teacher, continues to grow in popularity. It provides its en- thusiastic members with a chance to learn more about the arrangement, or composition, of a photograph, and to learn the mechanics of developing and printing black-and-white photographs. It also provides a large measure of fun — a very important function of any club. This year, the Camera Club has contributed in a material way to the Yearbook by supplying several of the candid shots which appear throughout the book. It is hoped that in future years the club will be able to increase its photographic coverage for the Yearbook greatly. The Camera Club Richard Buckley . . President Back Row: C. Azadian, L.

After taking Driver Education, which most students take in their Junior year, students are eligible for behind-the-wheel train- ing. The first turns at the wheel are rather hair- raising experiences — for the hapless soul at the wheel, for the other students in the car, and especially for the instructor. But in an amazingly short time the fog clears, and the driver begins to think for himself. In the course of six weeks, the majority of the students become fairly proficient drivers, and after a fearful day of bated breaths, most receive their licenses. The train- ing which this course provides is, of course, invaluable, and there is an extra dividend of fun. Surely no Sen- ior will ever forget the qualms of Driver Training. Driver Training That light uj as (!( Fifty-tuo Taking We sail the ocean blue!” " He is an Englishman!” Through the Years Pale shafts of late sunlight fall from the skylights onto the carved and scratched old desks below. The air is slightly musty, and there seem to be figures moving about in the shadows. And why not? For here are the ghosts from thousands of pasts. Here couples talk eternally in the doorways, mis- chievous boys forever carve names and initials on the desks, and the local thespians, singers, and musicians of past years perform for the ages. Yes, this is the Old Hall, the heart of Arlington High. For although we, the Class of ’54 first met as a class in the " New Hall,” although our June music assemblies, prize days, and our Class Day exercises were held there, the New Hall will never hold for us the myriad of small, personal memories which the Old Hall will never fail to awaken. When we first came to high school, after our principal had welcomed us and had introduced our guidance counselors and deans to us; after our home- room teachers had presented us with paper, pencils, and programs, and sent us out into the world of high , school on our own; after we had made our first attempts Its all right this time, but ... . to find our way about this new labyrinth; it was in the Old Hall that we found an opportunity to catch our breath and compare notes with our friends. it was in the Old Hall, in the days that followed, that we heard much of the news of progress made by members of our class of Sophomores who had made the football team, the cross-country team and so on, through the year. Fifty-three with us Here prospective G. A. A. members modeled their chick initiation costumes, and tried not to speak to the boys. Here we read our first issues of the Chronicle — and the many more which followed. Here we discussed the sud- den horror which descended upon us — our first report cards. (This, too, was a scene which was often to be re-enacted during our three years at A. H. S. ) Here many of the clubs which we joined met, and here, in our Sophomore year, the Gilbert and Sullivan Club re- hearsed its Blue Star Revue of 1952,” and the Dramatic Club its " Meet Corliss Archer.” And here we had our Christmas assembly. Here we heard the glorious news that our indoor track team won the Metropolitan Indoor Track Championship. Right across the hall, in Room five, the Chess Club was begun. And one more occurrence of note took place near this hall before we left for our summer vacation — our first brush with finals. The following September we returned to school as Juniors, and once more we congregated in the Old Hall to hear the latest news and to hold forth for our favorite presidential candidates — for that was an election year, Sign here please! " Our Father.” Arriving for Massachusetts State Convention of Student Councils. Fifty-four fond memories, and our opinions were no less strong because we had no vote. Among the highlights of the first month were the redecoration of the lunchroom, done during vacation, and the election of class officers. In a small room just offstage from the Old Hall, we folded Chronicles, early in the morning and late into the afternoon. There, too, the votes for the WHDH Record Poll were checked, be- fore being carried off to be counted. In the Hall, the ventilators broadcast the music and less musical thumps and screeches which proceeded from the girls’ gym during gym classes and G. A. A. meetings. Meanwhile, rehearsals for the Dramatic Club’s Our Miss Brooks,’’ and the Gilbert and Sullivan Club’s " H. M. S. Pinafore” went on apace. Here we watched the pres- idential inauguration on television. And perhaps even now, among the many memories that live here, the spirit of one who spent many hours here is com- muning with us. I speak of Mr. Reddan, of course, whose death so saddened us in our junior year. But life goes on, and here, in May, we were hosts for the Massachusetts Student Council Convention. Here we gathered the Monday after our Junior Prom to discuss the fun we had had — and here, too, many of us tangled for the first time with ScholasticAptitude Tests. Reluctantly, we said good-bye to the many seniors who had become our good friends. Somehow school, and especially this Hall, seemed empty without them, and we weren’t sorry when finals were over and we could leave a building suddenly too full of memories. Then, suddenly, it was September again, and we were Seniors. And suddenly we had time and energy for twice as much as we had ever done before. And did we eat! Stepping lightly. And the band played on! Fifty -five " Blue Boy, down — and he won ' t get up! " Many of us had already been to the class photographer, and the rest soon followed. Soon proofs, and later pic- tures inscribed with timeless senti- ments, were circulating surreptitious- ly in the Hall. We elected our class officers, sent in our applications to advanced schools and colleges, (and weren’t said applications a familiar sight around Hall! ) went to these same schools and colleges for person- al interview ' s, held class meetings, took Driver Training, and got, if just barely, our licenses, worked after school, went out for teams or rooted for our teams, joined more clubs, and still managed to find some time for things like hanging over a counter drinking a soda or listening to records — such as " Oh Mein Papa,” going to movies — now it was Cinerama — having an endless round of parties, and even doing an occa- sional bit of homework. Twice we paused to bid a sad farewell to a school-mate — Bob MacLeod, our own classmate, in October, and Bill Tate in December. In January we had more Scholastic Aptitude Tests, and in March w ' e had Scholastic Achievement Tests. B£i? i " To the victor belong the spoils!” Then suddenly it was April, and our final whirl had begun — the Sen- ior Prom, with its after-the-prom par- ties; our Year Books, which wouldn’t be complete until we had collected the autographed sentiments of sev- eral hundred very favorite fellow- students and teachers; Class Day; and finally graduation. And now — well, now we don’t really belong here any more, but I had to come back just once more, before I left, to sort of remember. It’s all been wonderful, hasn’t it! Well, good-bye, and good luck!

Reviewing the annals, we found that the planet was discovered by William Moore and his as- sistants, Sylvia Ch’en and Charles Vigas. in a revolutionary rocketship de- signed by Michael Bianco and piloted by Gerry Harrison and co-pilot, Jean Birtwell. these would-be space men left Earth. Now we present an amazing broadcast featuring films of actual places and happenings on Menotomy. Here is Menotomy Space Vision — A. H. S. — ’54. Come in.” " This is Menotomy Space Vision presenting the latest news of the metrop- olis, Robert Fitzgerald reporting. Our first news-cast introduces Audrey Lawton and her brief resume of the fashion world. Audrey — .” At (Roy) Mottla Manor, the latest ultra-ultra stratosphere swim suits, designed by Eleanor Keefe and Carol Thompkins, were demonstrated by Mary Caruso, Sally Davies, Valerie Alexander and Barbara Warren in a gorgeous new pool, patented by the Jean Schwamb, Joanne Solari, Mary Toscano Co., Manu- facturers. Nancy Ogden, Jacqueline Quinn, Rose Melin, Phyllis Wade, Helen Zwick- er, Patricia Villari, and Eleanor Varello were attired in the latest Menotomy fashions, created by Sandra Wingard, Marilyn Tabler, Denise Stuart, and Jean Scibilia. The jewelry worn by Elaine Stockwell, Lorraine Snow, Beverly Weston, Patricia MacDonald, and Diana Lence and advertising the (Bruce) Spaulding, (Harold) Steeves, (Earl) Sitter Co., Jewelers, brought a mur- mur of admiration from the crowd. In men’s fashions today, Thomas Atkinson, Bill Strang and Robert Blaney modeled space suits in the latest plaids and stripes, styled by Ted Cutler, John Cox, and Ken Pynn. A sigh from the ladies in the audience rose as George Maskell, Roy Toebes, and Frank Albertini walked on stage. Now back to Bob.” " Thank you, Audrey. Tomorrow the Universal Hot Rod Rocket Races will feature Tally Roghaar and her Blazing Bug.’ Walter Gately, Joe Sim- eone, Greg Gebow and Bob Kelly will compete in a drag race. The winner will be presented a three-week course in dancing at the Supersonic Dance Step Studio which is directed by Martin Keane, Bob Miller and Angela Pennio. The runner-up will be the guest of managers, Patricia Grant, Carole Jonah, and Marjorie Walker at their fabulous night club. There the guest will witness the feature attraction, Eleanor Jablonski, accompanied by Clotilde Chaves at the piano. The chorus line, consisting of Muriel Stimpson, Ruth Mariner, Berjig Javian, Claire Bullock, Susan Brown, Jackie Barry, Annette Loud, Lois Keefe, Alice Lowell, and Esther Malone, is expected to make spirits soar. One Hundred Six of a life well-lived Early today, the city was shaken by a spectacular supersonic snow-ball barrage. In this candid shot you see Alice Yirikian washing Dave Ryder’s face with a huge handful of snow, and Judy Lewis, Virginia Olson, Lolita Amo- deo, Ann Cosgrove, Eileen McHugh, Patricia McSweeney, and Ida Gechijian battling Eugene Sullivan, Schuyler Taylor, John Crowley, Thomas Galvin, Ed- ward Kasparian, Daniel Kenney, Fred Carlino and George Donahue. The Space Patrol, headed by Paul Doherty, Manuel Pedro, A1 Ryan, William Hay- den, Robert Green, George Garabedian, and Walter Colby, was called to quell the wild tumult. After the fight, Dr. Mehran Nasr and his bevy of lovely nurses, Cynthia Lawson, Judy Hayes, Joan Chandler, Marjorie Lowe, Pauline Reynolds, Joan Kennedy, Joan Callahan, and Eleanor Kiley, patched up the cuts and bruises. In today’s basketball game, the G. A. A. (Girls’ Atmospheric Associa- tion) vs. the Skyrockets, Alice McMahon, Eleanor Jones, Eleanor Laurendeau, Janice King, Ellen Torpey, and Marie Barbagallo competed against Bob Wil- liamson, Okie O’Connell, John McGreevy, Robert Await, Frank Napolitano, and Steven Nestor. Referees were Edward Casey and Robert Ciampa. The game was a real thriller. In the Tytanical Tennis Tournaments, Sandra Hale, Barbara Shannon, Carol Dewing, Elaine Doctoroff, Jane Peabody and Lorraine Martigian were the seven top contenders. So much for the late news. Here to take you, the audience, on a tour of our wonderful planet, is a group of visitors from Earth: Joyce Thibideau, Butch Seager, Marilyn DeCosta, and Billy LaBelle, with their traveling cam- eras, bringing you an actual tour around our planet. Here they are to tell you about the trip.” " Hello, everyone. Today our group had a wonderful time touring this strange planet. Awakened early by Arthur McCoy’s alarm clock, and, through the compliments of the (Don) McAdoo, (Bob) McCarthy, (Taft) Murray, Inc., fitted in the latest space ensembles, we began our tour. Flying over the city for a bird’s-eye view, we noticed the construction of a huge stratesphere scraper, built by Bill Maley, Bob Krepelka, Ed Barbagallo, and George Jamie- son, with their crew, Bill Hurley, John Galvin, Joe Hunt, John Kiernan, John Hayes, William Empey and Stephen Denihan for the firm of Walter Martin, Robert Lynch, and Robert Shea, Inc., Perfume Manufacturers. The building certainly made the Joe Donovan and Anthony Pereira Mouse Trap Tellurium next door look small. A little hungry by now, we soared in to Joan Guardabasso’s Rocketeria and were greeted by petite rocket-hop Mary Von Hein, who presented us with a menu featuring as today’s special, Thomas Scanlon’s tossed atom salad with Jean Poor’s neutron sauce. While sipping Robert Hazelton’s Supersonic Tonic, we noticed the All-Universe Couple, Paula Slyva and Nelson Camp, dining with Carol Noonan and Neil Hensel. After consuming a delicious meal prepared by John Vento and Edith McKelvie and served by Joan Lu- One Hundred Seven for ourselves. carelli and Rosalie Tavilla, we paid the cashier, Virginia Buck, with our plati- num M. T. A. tokens. Continuing our tour, we came upon Roger Nicoll ' s Muscle Building Emporium and noticed Robert O’Neill, Gene Mirabello, Arthur Manley and Ed Larsen walking toward the door. Approaching Alma Porter’s Planetarium, we saw Norman Peterson ushering the star gazers to their stools. First in line was Paul Flynn, followed by Ted Stewart, John Brennan, David Hollingsworth, Bill Pierson, John Murray and Alan McMahon. Deciding to take a quick look through William Green’s telescope, we were led into a midnight-black room. Groping our way along, we bumped into a num- ber of old friends: Janet Kirschbaum, Maureen Sheehan, Mary Fitzgerald, Don- ald Grinnell, Edward Picone, Joseph Campabasso, Norman Dakin, John Fino- chetti, Patricia Silk, Joe Simone, Joseph Quinn and Donald Proulx. There’s the (James) Colliton Comet and the new constellation, ’Philophia,’ discov- ered by Susan Spofford and named for Sophia Philips. Climbing back into our spaceojet, we gazed at the fuel filitititer (gas gauge) and decided to fill ’er up ' at the next Fueliteria, whic h happened to be owned by Norma Gammell and operated by William Dingley, Joseph Kilmar- tin and Arthur Wells. After filling the tank with two drops of Bruce Warren ' s wonder-fuel, skilled mechanics, John Tighe, Gorden Benson, John Fimlaid and Charles LeBlanc, gave our jet a complete overhaul. While waiting for the job to be completed, we talked with the charming attendants, Phyllis Kane, Jean Keatley, Joan Gass, Natlie Fiato, Janet Lewis, Gladys MacPhail, and Lor- raine Battite. In a few minutes we were again on our way. Hearing a shout, we looked back and saw Nancy Leahy, Patricia Magurn, Mary Mahoney, Eileen Houlihan, Ann Fiorenza, Dorothy Cioffi, and Kathleen Brown, the company’s secretaries. How could we have missed them! Stopping at an information booth near the local theater, we were sur- prised to see the smiling countenance of Elaine Thompson who directed us to the famous Banacopana Bliss Blimp. Reading, as we passed, the colorful signs of the theater marquee painted by Larry Perry, Harriet Ronayne, Carol Caterino, Avis Keyes and Barbara May, we found that Judy Kerivan, Hartley Noble, Bruce Dalrymple, Robert Sampson, Norma Kazan jian, and Sally Mor- gan were currently appearing in Yankee Clipper,’ an old-time movie written by Barbara Johnstin and directed by David Miller, James Taurasi and Robert Rego. It is said that the ushers, Gail Reinhold, Helen Rosenberger, Rose- marie Romano, Joan Roberts and Joyce Bertrand, are really kept busy with the crowds at the Thomas Rappoli, Vivian Reynolds Theater. On reaching the Banacopana, we were escorted to our tables by Charles Nochella. The special afternoon show began with famous comedians, David Reynolds, Tom Feeney and Leonard Tramonte. Then the lights dimmed and Judy McLaughlin ran through her popular hula routine. The Fabulous Spheres, Jim Flanigan, Lawrence Burns, Chet O’Brien, and William Drinan, accompanied by Fred Lavalle’s orchestra with Robert Wert, Virginia Hutchin- son and her chuckling -cello, Helen Lyman, Jean Spence, Barbara Morrison. One Hundred Eight and Barbara Brandt, presented Bruce Reilly ' s latest song hit, Kissing in the Dark,’ or I Forgot to Pay the Electric Bill.’ The famous girls’ chorus, with Katina Caramanis, Barbara Costagliola, Carol Alexie, Sally Cress, Judy Crosby, Tippy Croshier, Sona Dadourian, JoAnne Daigle, Deanne Dario, Jan Alsen, Marilyn Adell and Carol Casalou, led by Betty Center, sang a medley of old favorites from the year 1954. A very appreciative audience, including Barbara Harvey, Charlotte Hawkes, Robert Bacon, John Power, Arthur Durl- ing, Ken Ghostlaw, Carol Ford, and Marilyn Frisiello, greeted, with hearty applause, a delightful skit portraying the old A. H. S. lunchroom, starring Elaine Hurd, Carol Kelley, Joyce Kenniston, Robert Clark, Marguerite Claar, Alan Banks, Ann O’Rourke, and George Geragosian. After the show, we were directed to the Robert Cooke, Sheila Kennedy Hotel. Leaving our space gear with doorman, Raymond Pothier, we crossed the lobby and caught the attention of serene space beauty, Charlotte Rackliffe and her companions, Catherine Green, Louise Hicks, Judy Farmer, Peggy Estey, Nancy Price, Catherine Fernald, Claire Ahern, and Shirley Corey. Over in one corner of the lobby, our attention was attracted by Alan Wright, A 11- Space-Shot-put Champ. Guess A1 can still throw it. Stopping at the hotel gift shop, owned and operated by Mary Edwards and Dorothy Baxendale, we were surprised to meet Stanley Locke and Richard Buckley, who promptly escorted us to their photography studio next door. While waiting for our souvenir photographs, we noticed pictures of several of our old classmates who are now Menotomy’s outstanding citizens, hanging on the wall; professeur of atomic study at the Larry Tobiason Universal Univer- sity, Harold Sulahian; comedians, Dave Parella, Dick Surrette and Dave Hutch- inson; famous hair-stylists, Carol Kearney and Barbara Murphy; cinema queens, Joan LeBlanc, Lianne Burns, and Claire Callahan and the famous debating team, Eleanor Alibrandi, Rose Apprille, Rose Marie Cabral and Francis Anani- kian; the most eligible bachelors of the year, Thomas Bresnahan, Robert Chis- holm, William Nitzsche, Richard Martigian and James O ' Brien. We were given our photographs by Christine Noel, Richard Miano, Thomas Miller and William Crooker. At seven o’clock, we dined at the famed Paul Paynter’s Pizza Parlor, ( im- ported straight from Earth). The head waiters were Robert Amour, Harry Adamian, Joe Aprile, John Ashton, Robert Curran and Lawrence Hardin. The door show with Judy Aronson and her amazing aardvarks (ant-eaters) kept the gregarious crowd in ceaseless laughter. Late in the evening, we returned to our hotel rooms and all agreed that this new planet was really colossal. Earth is going to seem mighty primitive and tame after this experience. So pack your trunks and take a trip to Menotomy.” " We certainly enjoyed your story, Earth folks, but now our time’s run- ning out. We hope that you’ve enjoyed our anniversary show and meeting your old friends and classmates. This is Bob Fitzgerald saying good-bye for a few years. Take good care of yourselves. So long.” " This program was brought to you through the courtesy of the Zippy Zoda Bottling Company and its president, John Libby. Technical advisors were Donald Kelchner, Steven Kelleher, Bob DeYoung, Charles Kendrick and Paul Ligor.” One Hundred Nine And urge that you , the World at large, join with us in hoping and working for an ever-greater future for all.

Early last fall the Year Book Committee began the heavy task of assembling the Year Book. Alina Ottoson headed the committee as editor-in-chief. She was ably assisted by her committee and received invaluable help and guidance from Mrs. Moffatt and Mr. Eaton, our faculty advisors. There were innumerable jobs to be done before the Year Book could be completed. Besides personal write-ups there wa’s the selecting of photographs and sketches, the arrange- ment of pages, tabulating the Who’s Who, and selecting cap- tions for each person. Through the cooperation of all in- volved, however, it was finally completed. The result is this, your Year Book. We hope it will give you lasting memories of A. H. S. Editor . .

Omar Khayyam. A stamp album is a record of things past and present, prepared with the knowledge that the present will, in a moment, become the past. And so it is with a year book, which is but a record of the scenes, the people and the activities of a period of school life which will all too soon become only a memory. Like the stamps in an album, the words and pictures in a year book should be care- fully selected and interestingly arranged that they may, in later years, be a source of pleasant reading and happy memories. As printers of the 1954 Arlington High School Year Book we would take this op- portunity to express our appreciation for the cooperation given us by Alina Ottoson, Editor, and Mrs. Moffatt, Mr. Eaton and Mr. Coletta of the teaching staff.
