Junior High East Junior High West We dedicate our yearbook to the parents ; teachers ; ; those whose efforts have made possible the education and enjoyment of our high school careers. FOREWORD Our time is a turbulent one. Constant friction disturbs the world of the twen- CONTENTS tieth century, and our God-given freedom is cruelly curtailed in large areas of our world. It has been our happy lot, how- ever, to receive our training and educa- • Administration tion in a land where freedom is revered as an essential basis of society. Now, as we are at the threshold of our personal futures, we must assume our obligation • Seniors to cherish and perpetuate our basic free- doms wdiich ensure to every individual personal, spiritual, and intellectual free- dom of choice. • Athletics • Activities A 2 The Senior Class Presents MARTHA S. MOFFATT Last year, because of the retirement of Mrs. Martha S. Moffatt, our student body and faculty lost the serv- ice of a distinguished and respected friend. Mrs. Moffatt was not only a teacher of history, the Dean of Girls, and the advisor for the student council but also a valuable friend with a true interest in countless stu- dents. For many years, she bore the heavy responsibil- ity of directing the publication of our school yearbook. In leaving our high school, Mrs. Moffatt has not en- tirely left the teaching profession; she has accepted a position for a short period in a southern college. We shall always remember her kindness, patience, and wisdom; and most of all we are grateful for her diligence in developing the social attitudes of all her students. VERONICA F. HARRY When Miss Barry retired in the spring of 1056 after many years of faithful service at Arlington High School, all of us who were fortunate enough to have had her for a teacher felt a deep loss. Her dynamic presentations kept us ever alert and eager to learn. Miss Barry’s ex- tensive cultural background enlivened many a class and assisted in broadening our cultural horizons. Far more than a language was taught in her French classes. We learned a whole way of life. Nor was M iss Barry inter- ested only in our intellectual progress; for several sea- sons, she supervised the girls’ bowling teams, an activ- ity which provided plenty of exercise and fun for everyone. We have missed Miss Barry, and we shall remember her lessons. 4 IN MEMORIAM JUDITH SCOTT DAVIES ir greater is your reward on this our graduation day. 5 ADMINIS 6 Theresa B.

The Class of 1957 has made an excellent scholastic record, es- tablished time after time its ability to meet a challenge and maintained a fine attitude of loyal support to the school administration.

Each year this group supplies the ex- cellent musical background for the Gil- bert and Sullivan production in the spring of the year. A fine program is offered dur- ing the intermissions at the Dramatic Club play, and the orchestra also takes part in the annual exchange concert with Winchester High School. The talents of the members are displayed at graduation exercises as well as at the majority of our assemblies. The orchestra has added greatly to our list of enjoyable memories at Arlington High School. ar- ' £r mi JB FRONT ROW: J. Fiscale; P. Mahoney; C. Marrec; J. Margosian; E. McGrath; M. Kenerson; C.

The club held its meetings on Mondays during school, while a Jun- ior Club met after school. We girls always looked forward to the day when we would be the guests of a neighboring school. In past years, we have participated in programs at both Melrose and Natick High Schools, the Christmas radio broadcast, assemblies, and special programs. Even our student body awaited anxiously our group singing programs, as these assured a fresh pick-up to start their day.

Their singing has brightened many of our assemblies as well as provided enjoyable entertainment. The group was organized two years ago under the direction of Mr. Einzig and Mr. Sullivan. Every spring, tryouts are held for new candidates. The sextette has sung at neighboring high schools as well as banquets and numerous town functions. Their songs will always be remembered in our “Halls of Ivy.” ROBERT JOSEPH BOUDREAU Bob PETER JAMES BOROYAN CATHERINE PATRICIA BIGLEY Cathy — Chronicle; Office Assist- ant; Year Book Committee; Ten- nis; Allied A r outh; Pep Club JOYCE ANN BITZER Jozie — Glee Club ELINOR CAROLE BLAKNEY Gilbert Sullivan; Office Assist- ant RICHARD BELLOWS BLANEY Dick 21 The Band is one of the most important organizations in Arlington High. Our football games and rallies would not be so enjoyable if it weren’t for their effective music. And whether the sky be bine or gray, they are always ready to march down the field in their smart-looking uniforms of maroon and gray. This year the band con- sisted of forty-seven members, who were under the leadership of Mr. Hermance. Along with the football players, they also have their practicing to do. You can hear the strains of the Red and Gray sounding forth from the Lowe Auditorium during Friday afternoon practices. They did a wonder- ful job this year, and Arlington High is proud of them. The majorettes in their colorful and attractive cos- tumes certainly add a brightening touch to the band. This year’s group of girls were led by Barbara Tourte- lotte. Their many hours of practice were rewarded by wholehearted applause for their wonderful performances on the football field which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

Gilbert and Sullivan Club President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Claudia Hefler James Fantazian Susan Hurd Judith Taylor The Gilbert and Sullivan Club is a musical organization which each year pre- sents a musical production featuring the vocal and instrumental talents of the mem- bers of the student body. Originally organized to produce the popular operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan, the club has varied its program in the past three years to in- clude a variety show, and operettas by other composers. When we were sophomores, a variety show was presented. Our junior class en- joyed the comic operetta, “Babes in Toyland,” and in our senior year “The Fortune Teller.” DAVID CLARK BUCK PAUL DAVES BROWN Football ROBERT JAMES BREWER Red — Student Council, Treasurer; Year Book Committee; Allied Youth ARNOLD JAY BRADFORD Honor Roll; Chess; Chronicle; Finalist, National Merit Scholar- ship; Year Book Committee DEBORAH ANN BRAYTON Debbie — Chronicle; Gilbert Sul- livan; Glee Club; Latin Club; Year Book Committee; Honor Roll CELESTE JEANNE BRODEUR Girls Athletic Association; Office Assistant; Bowling; Tennis, Honor Roll 23 BRENDA WALLACE BUCKLER Honor Roll; Chronicle; Dramatic Club; Gilbert Sullivan; Year Book Committee William Lowder Director of Athletics Gridiron Greats A.II.S.

CLARK Fall and Football As the 1956 football season began, one big problem faced the team, the lack of experience. With only a couple of veterans returning and a schedule packed with powerhouses facing them, the team faced a tough season. Under the able coaching of Mr. Burns and his staff, the willingness to learn, the fighting spirit, and the determination to win were sparked. Captain Dick Pat- terson’s great running, blocking, and tackling were an inspiration to the whole team. Flanking him in the baekfield were two fleet half-backs, Captain-elect Mike Faiola and Jim Surrette. Completing the baekfield was George Limerick whose tricky maneuvering got Arling- ton out of many tight spots. For their fine play throughout the year, three boys, Dick Patterson, Gus Alazzoca, and Peter Staffon, re- ceived the honor of playing in the first Harry Agganis Memorial Game. The spirit exhibited by our team throughout the sea- son was a gratifying sight for everyone to see. It not only reflected nicely on each boy but on the whole school as well. To the hard-working coaches go congrat- ulations for developing these boys into a fine, hard- fighting team of which everyone was extremely proud. ROBERT E. COLBY Bob — Golf CATHLEEN T.

In the Central Division of the Greater Boston Interscholastic Golf League, A. H. S. golfers strive for top honors when they oppose Con- cord, Cambridge High and Latin, Lexington, and Rindge Tech. They meet each opponent twice: once at home at the Winchester Country Club, and once away. 1957 promises to be a challenging year in a well-balanced league. An all-veteran Arlington team under the guidance of Coach George Low- der is eagerlv anticipating matches with such teams as Cambridge High and Latin and Concord, last year’s first place winner. The A. H. S. golfers, having more tournament experience this year, hope to displace the “champs” and move up from their 1956 second place position. ROBERT F.

The team fought hard all the way and finished up the dual-meet season by soundly beat- ing Beverly. Then they went on to make a good showing in the divisional meets. Special tribute should be paid to Anthony Renaccio who placed first in all but one of the regular meets. Ted Richards and Dave Mudarri did quite well also, hover- ing about the third or fourth position, but the results of the team were due to the combined efforts of all. FIRST ROW: N. Gillis, P.

Morel; R. Donovan, Manager. The A. II. S. basketball team this year presented many new players with Captain Charlie Pigott the only returning veteran from last year’s tournament team. After an exciting upset over- time victory against Cambridge Latin, the inexperienced Arlington squad was defeated in close contests with Waltham, Brookline, Rindge, and Watertown. As the season progressed, the team improved and gained in confidence. It was a typical Sub- urban League season. The league teams were evenly matched, and games were won or lost, in most cases, in the exciting closing minutes of play. The outlook for the future is bright, but A. H. S. will miss the fine play of seniors Charlie Pigott, Joe Skenderian, Dennie Morel, and Jim Quinn who contributed so much to this year’s team.

Despite their energetic participation in many other school ac- tivities, these girls prove their loyalty to the school’s teams by directing cheers at football, basketball, and hockey games, respectively. The shared leadership of the co-captains, Patricia Geagan and Judy Villari, re- flects the unified support of all members. For a great year of echoing cheers — congratulations to each cheer- leader !

This expression of originality is necessary in everything that one does. Art, music, public speaking, and literature all thrive on the ability to express thought in words. One might say that Modern Dance is an indirect method of doing this; for we express thought through action. Modern Dance also builds graceful and supple bodies. I’m sure that the girls will not easily forget the fun we had putting on “T’was The Night Before Christmas” for the G.A.A. Christmas Party under the supervision of Miss Anderson. Although our years at A. II. S. are of the past I’m sure that the Modern Dance Club of 1957 will be remembered by its members.

It shows young people how to build life patterns in which there is no need for alcholic beverages. Our Allied Youth has already begun to make a name for itself, for they hope to have as large a charter membership as any group in the United States. We Seniors sincerely hope that next year’s president and members will continue to make Allied Youth a popular and successful club at Arlington High School.

Thanks to the fine direc- tion of our coach, Mrs. Sampson, and the concentrated efforts of our members, the play was enthusiastically received. However, the fact that our endeavor was successful is not of prime importance, beyond that it represents teamwork and the unselfish giving of time and talent on the part of each member striving to make our show a good one. The pleasure to be gained from working in this manner is more than ample compensation for the long, sometimes tedious, but more often fun-filled hours of planning and rehearsal. We feel that in this type of working relationship, the complete co-opera- tion of all members is a satisfaction more rewarding even than the final applause after the show.

We’ve got a movie.’’ Have you ever wondered what makes this sentence heard almost everyday in our high school? The responsible factor is our fine, highly trained projection club. This club is dedicated to serv- ing the school through the presentation of visual aides in all subjects. To operate the precision equipment, both motion and still, we have a group of boys, who set up, operate, and put away all equipment used during the period. As one teacher said, “They work so quietly and quickly, you don’t notice them until after they have gone.” CARLENE ANN HINTLIAN Chronicle, Business Manager; Dra- matic Club; Girls’ Athletic Asso- ciation; Gilbert Sullivan; Glee Club; Majorettes; Office Assist- ants; Bowling; Allied Youth ROBERT LEIGHTON HODGDON Dob — Projection Club DONALD EUGENE RICHARD WARREN HOLLY HOLMSTEAD Rick — Band; Orchestra, President Don 50 I ( Chess Club The Chess Club is an informal group of pupils who meet every Friday afternoon.

The first meeting of each month is devoted to book reviews. At the second meet- ing a film of special interest to teen-agers is shown, after which two members lead a discussion. While refreshments are served, there is a lively exchange of ideas. Our club has no officers. We believe that every member should have the oppor- tunity to be a chairman of a meeting at least once during the year. FRONT ROW: P. Madden, B. Herzig, F. Williamson, B. Eng, J. Hudson.

At that time the club, just one year old, was considered to be for bookworms. That idea has changed, as students came to realize that books can be a source of pleasure for everyone. Each member gives up one study period a week in order to help in the library. While assisting others, the Corps members learn to be skillful users of the library themselves. But it’s not all work and no play. The members have outings, candy sales, and parties. This year the Corps sponsored the very successful teen age section at the Book Fair in which groups from the entire town participated. From such successes as these, the prestige of a fine club is built, and the senior class has every right to be proud of the Library Corps.

Each year the club undertakes projects through which it can gain experience in reference work, which is very useful in the future years of the students. The club goes on excursions to museums, libraries, and other places where it is proven that Latin is not a dead language. It also has discus- sions and lectures through which it tries to further the study of the classics. The club entertains other Latin Clubs from different schools, comparing the work of each with the other. At the end of the school year a banquet is held which climaxes the last year of the Latin students at A.H.S. Miss Rounds, who is greatly ad- mired by the students for her constant willingness to help, advises the club in its various activities.

Although these boys operate on a different schedule from ours, they still remain an important part of the senior class. Some of the Class of 1957 entered the field of trade in the fall of 1954. In general, they were typical sophomores, wondering what the Vocational High had to offer. The teachers who explained the background of the school spoke of how it differed from regular high school in so far as they went to shop for one week and during the following week studied in class. The next few months were devoted to learning the fundamentals of their respec- tive trades. To add to the knowledge of the members of the auto shop, field trips were planned, including one to the Ford Plant. James I. Terranova Instructor E.

The junior year was devoted to learning the practical side of the work and apply- ing the knowledge the teachers had taught. In the second year, we went on more field trips which included trips to General Radio Company and WBJR Radio Sta- tion. These trips were taken by students in the radio department. Pupils in the auto shop visited General Motors, the Ford Plant, and the Atlantic Battery Company. Edmund J.

Verney Instructor In the senior year, the radio department toured M.I.T. and the John Hancock Building. Not only was this of great interest but also of great value in helping them to understand life in the industrial world. During their high school career, they have learned many lessons and received friendly advice from their teachers, for which they are grateful. Thus, they leave this institution, proud of the fact that they are members of the Vocational High School. Their experiences have been varied and interesting. From the splendid habits they have acquired under the guidance of Mr. Patterson and the faculty, they intend to achieve the honor and the respect of our community by whom this specialized training is made possible.

Some of us awaited the start of our high school careers with mis- givings; others, with anticipation. We were given a warm welcome by Mr. Downs who, just as we were beginning our high school years, was beginning his as the prin- cipal. Then, a state of confusion for us really began. For days, we had a bewildered look. In fact, we never did find the “elevator,” to which we were directed so many times.

We discovered a great variety of teams, clubs, and other extracurri- cula activities. During the year, the Dramatic Club presented “The Goose Hangs High,” and the Gilbert and Sullivan Club entertained us with “This is My Coun- try.” The sextet, which has proved to be a very popular singing group, was first formed during this year. Then in June, we discovered a less pleasant phase of high school life, final exams; however, most of us survived the ordeal. Afterward we really felt the need of a vaca- tion. The summer flew by, and soon, we found ourselves back in school again, a year older and bearing the proud title of Juniors. Yes, we were Juniors. And we certainly didn’t waste any time in starting a successful year. First the Dramatic Club pre- sented a magnificent performance of “Ghost Train.” Christmas vacation followed. Starting in January, we began rehearsing for the Gilbert and Sullivan presentation of “Babes in Toyland.” We instituted a new organization that year, the Debating Club. It was also during our junior year that Arlington High had its first foreign ex- change student. How proud we were that the first student from A.H.S. to go abroad with the A.F.S. was a member of our class! Then, if you looked real hard, you could see many of us assiduously delving into dictionaries preparing for the May Scho- lastic Aptitude Tests. After that ordeal, you probably noticed our girls talking more secretively than usual and the boys saving their money for a change. Yes, the Jun- ROSE ANN ROBERTO Glee Club DONNA ELIZABETH ROBINSON Cheer Leader; Chronicle; Girls’ Athletic Association; Student Council, President; Basketball; Bowling; Tennis; Pep Club; Al- lied A’outh ROBERTA EILEEN ROGERS Bobbie ANNE MARIE RONAN Girls’ Athletic Association, Presi- dent; Year Book Committee; Bas- ketball, Captain; Field Hockey; Girls’ Softball; Pep Club; Allied Youth ■ 79 ior Prom was upon us, and we had another tremendous success at the Commander Hotel. It left us ready for another vacation, but first we had to suffer through those horrible final exams; however, it had been such a wonderful year that we really couldn’t complain about a few simple tests. Summer passed. At last came our Sen- ior year! We’re all grown up now, and if not, we should be! Almost immediately we started our new school year with a new Dean of Girls, our M iss Binnig. Another “new” was the formation of an organization, The Allied Youth. To cheer our athletic teams on to greater effort and victories, the Pep Club was initiated. Soon, w r e were all agog! Twenty-one members of our senior class were nominated for the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in October. “Father Knows Best,” a hilarious comedy, was presented by the Dramatic Club as the final event of 1956. In the meantime, many of us were wearing a footpath to the guidance office to see our counselors, without whose invaluable assistance we might never have reach- ed a decision concerning our future career.

Yet, the long-anticipated day of our senior year was now upon us — the Senior Prom! We’ll never forget the starry-eyed excite- ment. of that night of nights. Soon came the realization that Class Day was the harbinger of Graduation Day, which was closing the happiest, most wonderful days of our life. Shortly, we would be going our separate ways — each to his own choice of career or college, knowing that all we had learned here in Arlington High School would be vital preparation in making us, the Class of 1957 better citizens in tomorrow’s world.

The challenge has been to put between these covers the memor- able experiences of our past three years. This we hope we have done effectively, so that in the future your yearbook will hold great meaning for you. Only through the combined efforts of many contributors, however, have we brought our work to its culmination. We should like to express our sincere apprecia- tion to all the members of the faculty and student body who have helped us in our endeavors. We sincerely hope this book is as much of a reward for you as it is for us.

Baseball Coach Cavalieri started his 1957 season with only seven veterans from last year’s squad. However, a very promising J.V. Squad gave high hopes for another good season. The success of the team was clearly indicated by a record of 9 wins and 5 losses. Next year’s squad looks forward to an even greater success.

At the annual May meeting the Club entertains the students of A. H. S. at a banquet who are on the ath- letic squads, or who play any role in the athletic pic- ture, such as the band, cheerleaders, etc. The highlight of this occasion is the Frederick V. Ostergren Memorial Award, a Lord and Lady Elgin Watch, given each year to the tw r o outstanding athletes of the senior class. The winners of 1957 were Jane Walker and George Limerick.

For the past two years we have had a student from Turkey and Sweden, and expect one from Germany in September. Last summer Claire Meo went to Germany and this summer Cynthia Rugg will travel to Sweden and Sean Tierney to Portugal. We would like to thank all the sponsors who gave their support in making this program a success. Donna E.
