VOL. 27 THOMPSONVILLE, CONN., JUNE, 1940 NO. 1 ADDRESS OF WELCOME (By Charles Misuraca, Class President) Parents, Teachers and Friends : As President of the Class of Nineteen Hundred Forty, it is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to our Class Night Exercises. Tonight marks the beginning of the end of our high school days. These profitable and pleasure-filled years were made possible only through the sacrifices of our parents and the untiring efforts of our teachers. We are now on our own. The decision is now ours to choose the right cross road and go on to higher learning. The class wishes to extend its sincere thanks and gratitude to all who have lent a helping hand during the formative period of our lives. In behalf of the Class of Nineteen Hundred Forty, I again bid you a cordial welcome to our Class Night Program. CLASS HISTORY (By Dorothy Coleman) ENFIELD CLARION NEWS REVIEW September 6, 1936 The Class of 1940 entered Enfield High School today. The first few hours they seemed to be a little self-conscious and bewil- dered, but that wore off as the day progressed. According to all reports this class is really going to become a useful, progressive group of people. October 15, 1936 The following officers were elected by the Class of ’40 at Enfield High School. President, Charles Misuraca; Vice-President, Marjorie Munson; Secretary, Jean Smyth; Treasurer, Francis Devine. It is believed that this is a very wise choice on the part 26 The Enfield Echo of the voters. The officers promised, during their campaign, a clean, honest administration. September 5, 1937 The Class of ’40 entered the ranks of the intelligensia this morning when they became Sophomores. After the fine showing of this class last year, it seems very probable that it will be one of the finest the school has yet seen. October 7, 1937 One of the most highly esteemed members of the Class of 1940, William Thompson, died today. He was dearly loved by all who knew him because of his many excellent qualities. Needless to say he will be sadly missed. October 20, 1937 The Class of 1940 held its annual election this morning. The President, Charles Misuraca, was reelected because of his com- mendable leadership of the past year. Other officers elected are Vice-President, Irene Gautreau; Secretary, Jean Smyth; Treas- urer, Francis Devine. December 4, 1937 The Class of ’40 took part in the first dramatic production of the year, the Hi-Y Minstrel. This proved to the school that this class is willing to cooperate in all school extracurricular activities. September 3, 1938 Enfield High welcomed new Juniors this morning, the noted Class of ’40. The school expects the class to be as prominent this year as it has been in the previous two years. October 10, 1938 This morning the following officers took over the guidance of the Class of ’40. Charles Misuraca was re-elected President; Margaret Cyganus, Vice-President; Mary Hedenburg, Secretary; and Francis Devine, Treasurer. December 2, 1938 The Class of ’40 was well represented in the Hi-Y Minstrel today. In addition to the many in the chorus, Ralph August and Ed. Augustyniak represented the class as end men. April 26, 1939 The crowning glory of the year came today when the Junior Class held its annual Spring Promenade. This class has set a new record by making a large profit. Charles Wielgus and Sadie Scavotto capably served as host and hostess. September 6, 1939 The greatest thrill in the lives of the Class of ’40 came this morning when they took over the Senior seats. The new Seniors The Enfield Echo 27 looked very dignified as they left the auditorium first. The under- classmen showed the Seniors their due respect, but how long will it last? October 24, 1939 The following officers were elected this morning by the Class of 1940. President Misuraca retained the office which he has held for the past three years. He has done a fine job in the past and all expect him to keep up his excellent work. Margaret Cyganus was reelected because of her past record as Class Vice-President. The Secretary is Alice Richardson. The very popular Francis Devine also retained his post as Class Treasurer. November 24, 1939 The first big event of the year, the Hi-Y Minstrel, took place today. Charles Misuraca, President of the Hi-Y Club, was inter- locutor. Ralph August and Ed. Augustyniak again represented the class as end men. The solo of John Trappe was truly a highlight of the show. December 1.5, 1939 Thomas Hayden and Anne Starr were chosen by the Senior Class to preside over the annual Senior Promenade. The prom is expected to be as big a success financially as it is socially. January 26, 1940 The annual school play was given today at Enfield High. Evelyn O’Brien and Fran Devine blossomed out as stars. The sup- porting cast was made up of Mahlon Brown, Delmont Meagher, Sadie Scavotto, and Jeane Loftus. The play chosen was “Sweet Sixteen”. This production was very capably managed by John Trappe. April 15, 1940 Tonight Enfield High School took part in the Valley Wheel Play Festival. The play which Enfield has chosen for production is “The Minuet”. The members of the cast were Evelyn O’Brien, Anne Marie O’Donnell, Francis Devine, John Trappe, Delmont Meagher and Francis D’Aleo. Throughout the entire year, the Seniors, in Room 26, have enjoyed the following visitors, who gave interesting and inspiring talks: Former Representative, Julia Doyle, Father King, Reverend Charles Nichols, Reverend William Turnbull and Mr. Charles Monahan. June 20, 1940 This evening Enfield High School is bidding farewell to its annual graduating class. It is with deep regret that this group writes “finis” to this chapter in their great “Book of Life.” 28 The Enfield Echo CLASS PROPHECY (By Carmelina Maniscalco, Allyn Bridge, Wanda Walizki, Charles Hannum) Part I It is the year 1950, and the time for another census to be taken. We, the census takers, have compiled the following report of the doings of our classmates during the past ten years. Tommy Birdsall has turned the Prison Farm into a Rhythm Club. In the orchestra, which is known as the “Swinging Hicks from Scitico Sticks,” we have Elliott Colby, Charles Vella and Royce Wilcox. The orchestra is well provided with vegetables every week by the audience. The entertainment is provided by the “Broadway Tappers of 1950,” which consists of Dora Lamagna, Ursula Sheehan, Lorraine Landry, Eileen Kiernan and Jeanette Charest. Marjorie LaGrange, Sadie Wlodkoski, Mary Rumore and Mary Provenzano are hostesses. The advertising is done by Edward Mnich. Alice Richardson and Jane Barszcz run their own Millinery Shop in New York, but their styles are not original. They copy them from Wanda Walizki, whose styles are sent directly from Paris. Charles Misuraca runs his own Radio Store. Jean Bartley and Gabriella Cardone are frequent visitors. But surely they can’t be interested in radios. Eleanor Fowler is teaching French to a group of boys who are always busy dating her. Beatrice Blake and Frances Bartolotta are trying to invent a new alarm clock. The old one lost the technique of waking them up. From far away Africa comes news that Jean Brovero and Ernestine Oliver are doing missionary work. “Glamour Boy” Charles Wielgus was voted the best dressed man in “No-Man’s Land.” The impersonator, Michael Mangini is still trying to get an audition to appear on Major Bowes’ Program. Raleigh Brown runs the “Non-Shrinkage Tailor Shop” here in town. Lillian Peeler and Jeanette Osowiecki recommend him to all their friends. Constance Mundle is teaching in a High School in Washington. Sophie Kwiecienski has opened a Home Economics School. Her promising students are Jean Fitzgerald and Ann Marie O’Donnell. As I check further on my list I find that Raymond Clarkin has been spending his time giving aesthetic dancing lessons to a group of girls on Waikiki Beach. Gus Theofiles has become the shadow’s shadow’s assistant. The Enfield Echo 29 Charles Hannum employs Mary Hedenburg and Anne Starr as nurses in his hospital for corns and bunions. Albert Arietti retired to a life of solitude and rest two weeks after graduating from high school. Helen Brozowska has been selected as ideal secretary in a re- cent national contest. I will now turn you over to our next census taker. Part II Recently at my government task of prying into the personal affairs of our residents of this fair metropolis, I came across many interesting facts concerning members of our class. First, news from the field of Sports! Not long ago, I had a long talk with George LaGrange, who by the way, has been ad- vanced to the position of Sports Editor for the Thompsonville Press. Tony Di Gregorio, left fielder for the Boston Red Sox, is receiving a much fatter pay check this year and Bud Watton has been pro- moted to bat boy for the same club. Because of lack of competition, our High School tennis flash, Raymond Burgess recently turned professional. From Washington the news is that Margaret Cyganus, Jean Smyth, and Mary McLaren are now ready to drop out of the pub- lic’s eye after Anally winning the National Debating Championship. After conferring with Thomas Gracewski, secretary of Agriculture, Jeane Loftus, our congresswoman from Connecticut, met with Lillian Zarcaro, Eileen Mills and Rose Zirolli, who represented the leading clothing manufacturers of the country at the National Stylists Convention. General Angelo Picone has lately been endeavoring to round up Edward Buck and his bodyguard, Roy Frangiamore, who gave up their paper routes to become international spies. Charles Fiore has been charged by the general for sailing to the army homing pigeons which seemed to feel more at home in Suflield. From the premiere of Evelyn O’Brien’s latest motion picture in the Radio City Music Hall we hear that head usher, Allan O’Neil, still holds theater conferences with Mary Kuhm, who at present is in New York Modeling for Shirley Temple dolls. We wonder if attending Emelia Sarno’s personality school, taught by Anna Angelica, Eleanor Cimino, and Sophie Typronsay had anything to do with Fran D’Aleo’s winning the Irish Sweep- stakes. Now his m.ost constant pursuers are automobile sales- man, Alphonse Testoni, and Ghislain Gosselin who has practically dragged D’Aleo into partnership in order to start Production on his filmless camera. Part HI Paul Sheridan, popular on his beat, has been courting Helen Kot, who is nursemaid for Catherine Kiszka. 30 The Enfield Echo Traveling swiftly across small towns I had time to go to Hala- gasaki to hear Carme Maniscalco, the famous Prima Donna, hit high C. The applause was so tremendous that plaster fell off the walls. Upon being questioned about his occupation John Mientus said he was a pilot for the Fly-So-Fast Company. He recently has taken on Sadie Scavatto and Eleanor Krzys as his air hostesses. Their costumes are unusual. No wonder Thomas Stinson, world-wide famous photographer, is a frequent passenger. Here comes tall, dark and handsome Tod Thayer, the famous screen lover who makes many a heart beat faster. He is none other than Teddy Dojka. Do you remember him? Francis Devine’s occupation is now at the top of the list. He has a business of his own. He uses mechanical secretaries so that when he presses a button they do the work assigned. They also have speaking voices. This is the famous Invention of Richard Philbin, the chief Radio Operator at Radio City. During a recent brainstorm, George Jucius made a new hair tonic to make his hair curl. He calls it the “Curling Dervish.” Helen Walizki, one of our recent Debs, eloped to Las Vegas with a Multi-Millionaire who got rich by growing trees that bear peaches with cream inside. Mahlon Brown, at present owns and runs a charm school for Old Maids. These charming women acquire musical voices by listening and laughing to his witty jokes. There’s never a dull moment in this Census Work. Lucy Sienko now has a factory manufacturing false eyelashes and wigs. His Honor, Judge Thomas Hayden, presides over the Supreme Court. Since he has been in office he has changed some of the rules of the court. At 3 o’clock everything is stopped so that he can have his afternoon nap. As I go to the other part of town I talk to Sophie Grojeski. She is now a fashion director. Her assistant is Margaret Porto, who is her only model up to date. Nellie Swiattcwski, the Stocking Heiress, vacations at Palm Beach where cupid finally caught up with her. Grace Barton is the personal secretary to Anthony Saracco, the Mayor of Iskabal. The Fred Astaire of our times is none other than Edward Augustyniak who gives private lessons. At present he is teaching Phyliss Johnston. Nicholas Angelica is the owner of the Popular “Hotcha” Night Club, where his frequent patron is Ralph August, requesting the orchestra to play “Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair.” At present Ruth Vivier, has won many an honor and recently won the World’s Champion best all around Drum Major in 47 States, the other one state not in the judging. David Collins is raising prize pigs that weigh 300 pounds. His The Enfield Echo 31 favorite is Elmira, who won the Blue Ribbon in 1940. She still waddles around. Part IV As I proceed to question the remainder of the citizens I cross the tracks into the lower part of town. My first victim is John Trappe who is still known as Pudgy Wudgy to the girls. He is the Imperial Manager of his string of one hamburger stand. He is waiting on the beautiful shoe manu- facturess, Edwina Halgas, who made all her money selling shoes for pickled pigs feet. Gloria Drohan and Roland Carmel are co-authors of the current smash novel, “How To Build Up An Argument with Nothing To Argue About.” The next stop is the crowded Franklin Music Hall where the 20-minute Bigelow Hour is now in progress. We have the Queen of ballet dancers, Georgetta Coleman and the King of Romance, Raymond Aleskewiz, doing the Balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet. The next super event is a song by that excellent trio Josephine Emanuel, Marion Brooks, and Mary Cygan. They are singing that old hit tune, “The Woodpeckers’ Song.” Those three prominent scientists Delmont Meagher, Stella Tokarczyk, and Dorothy Vesce have answered to the question of occupation that they have given their services to the public de- mands. They are inventing a foolproof red hair dye so everybody can be lucky. Alice Wright and Angelina Giaccone are operating their own Dress Shoppe in which they sell red flannel underwear to the poor people of the Sahara desert. Moselle Rivers is engaged in teaching Chinese to German spies. Roger Ingraham, the sailor of our 1940 Class, is the Grand Admiral of the Connecticut River Defenses. Dorothy Rostek is running her own aquacade in Fresh- Water Pond. Her stars are Emily Kalwa, Helen Jakobek, and Lucille Haber. Joe Buttacavoli is the champion golfer of the United States and now runs his own Midget Golf Course. Mary Steward manages her own tobacco farm where they throw old newspapers into the fields and the tobacco rolls itself into cigarettes. Beryl Kennedy is now in charge of Professor Quiz’s radio show and uses him as a stooge. Eleanor Colson who still talks as much as ever is a horse race announcer on Station WTHV, Thompsonville. Helen Buczkowski and Mary Fiore are co-owners of the “Merry Maid’s Toddy Shop,” for over-worked students. Frank Korona is the stand-in for Pinnochio. 32 The Enfield Echo CLASS PRESENTATIONS (By Anne Starr, Anne Marie O’Donnell, Allan O’Neil, Raymond Clarkin) Jean Smyth Notebook At stenography Jean’s quality is prime. She has won contests galore. To keep her skill all of the time, She can practice on this some more. Anne Starr Dance Program A pretty girl with cheerful ways, Who dearly loves dances. This program will keep her straight And avoid all bad glances. Mary Steward Pattern Mary takes Home Ec. each day. She sews and sews and sews. A pattern will be of help In making pretty clothes. Irene Tenerowicz Shampoo Irene’s hair is like gold It glitters in the light This shampoo we have been told. Will make it shine at night. Alphonse Testoni Roller Skates To roller skate is his delight. He goes whenever he can This pair of skates are new and bright. And should bring him quite a hand. Ruth Vivier Baton Here comes the parade! With our Ruth at its head. A pretty picture does she make She surely has what it takes. Helen Walizki Fashion Book My what a lovely dress! You always look so nice That to give you a fashion book We didn’t have to think twice. Thomas Stinson Camera Tom, Tom, your father’s son. You snap a picture and away you run. We know this camera doesn’t cost a lot. But the friendship that goes with it Can not be bought. Charles Wielgus Needle and Thread “I’ve lost the button off my coat. Now what shall I do?” Why use this of course We always do too. Wanda Walizki.... Book of Hair Styles How do you keep your hair so nice ? It’s never out of place! A book of hair styles Is surely in good taste. Helen Wietecha Broom A housekeeper needs a broom So, Helen, we give you one And hope you will put it to use And use it just for fun. Royce Wilcox Film A camera man is he. With an eye for beauty. This film should help. To snap things is his duty. Sadie Wlodkoski Bus Pass Sadie lives a long way off And has to journey far This bus pass should be useful If she can’t afford a car. Anthony Saracco Radio On Main Street Tony is seen. Listening to his favorite teams. We’re sure this radio he will enjoy And hope he won’t treat it as a toy. Wanda Zawada, Helen Wietecha, Helen Wlotkowski and Steffie Sordoski own a share of a soda fountain and Robert Vasseur is the soda jerker. Allyn Bridge, a prominent chemist and a pacifist, is engaged in trying to invent a gunpowder that won’t explode so that the wars of the future will be more humane. After finding the population of our 1940 Class to be 130, I officially close the 1950 Census and declare my wish that all may be with us in 1960. The Enfield Echo 33 Emelia Sarno Bcok on How To Make Noise We never know if she is present, She never makes a sound. To her a little book to help us Know that she is around. Sadie Scavotto American Beauty Rose The only thing we could find To keep us in mind Of our lovely Sadie Who is a charming lady.

The Enfield Echo 67 IN MEMORIAM The Class of 1940 is not without its sorrow. Death cast its shadow on happy school days with the passing away of William Thompson and Gladys Bajek. These hearts were woven of human joys and cares, Washed marvellously with sorrow, swift to mirth. The years had given them kindness. Dawn was theirs. And sunset, and the colors of the earth. These had seen movement, and heard music; knoivn Shimber and waking; loved; gone proudly friended; Felt the quick stir of wonder; sat alone; Touched flowers and furs and cheeks. All this is ended. There are waters blown by changing winds to laughter And lit by the rich skies, all day. And after, Frost, with a gesture, stays the waves that dance And wandering loveliness. He leaves a white Unbroken glory, a gathered radiance, A ividth, a shining peace, binder the night. — Rupert Brooke 68 The Enfield Echo PROGRAM FOR GRADUATION, JUNE 20, 1940 Music — Processional — “Pomp and Circumstance” Elgar Invocation REVEREND WILLIAM TURNBULL Sonata in minor Beryl Kennedy I.

' ' - ' ' t) Four years ago we launched our ship within old Enfield’s door, Our struggles have not been in vain, We’ve reached the other shore; A wealth of friendships we have found, and though we must de- part. The friends we lose from daily life will e’er stay in each heart. Chorus So we’ll say goodbye to Enfield, To the school we cherish so; Our work is done, we’ve had our fun, The time has come to go. We won’t forget the joys and cares of high school days gone by. With tears that tell we bid farewell to Enfield High. As a shadow dims a smiling face and tear-drops tell of pain. As clouds will cover up the sun before they bring the rain; So parting with a friend we love into a world of strife Is just the calm before the storm upon the sea of Life. The Enfield Echo 71 ADVICE TO UNDERGRADUATES (By Francis Devine) Ladies and gentlemen, and so-called students of the Enfield High School. At this time it is my duty to give you some idea of how to go about assuming the tremendous burden that is soon to be placed on your undeveloped shoulders. Of course, the Class of ’40 does not expect you to even come near the high standard we have set, but just to ease you over the “rough-spots”, I am going to give you some advice. First of all, I want to speak to the JUNIORS. Of course, there will be about one-half of you who may have bestowed on you in September, the illustrious title of Senior. It is to you I am speaking, and not to the other undeveloped specimens of your class. Please try to live up to the title of Senior. I noticed that the Junior girls thought it quite the fashion this year to wear bells attached to their shoes. Don’t do it next year, unless you want Room 26 to sound like a cow-pasture. Now, for those among you who call yourselves boys. Why, we didn’t need to see you coming to know you were members of the Junior class. Your socks, ties, and suits were so loud, we could HEAR you coming. Next year, as Seniors, you really won’t need a pass to get out of Study Hall. Just walk out whenever you please, and don’t let the teachers fool you. Of course, some of you dear students have taken advantage of this privilege already. Now for some advice about your Washington Trip. If I were you, I would try to break that habit of eating your peas with your knife. It doesn’t look nice, and really shov s that you are very uncultured. Of course, you cannot expect the reception that we got in Washington when it was privileged by our coming in April, but try to make a good impression, no matter how hard you must try. And now, some advice about your class pictures. Of course, you all have seen ours and admired them, but if I were you, I would look grouchy and frown and thus show your true nature. If you smile and look pleasant, people will say that the pictures do not resemble you at all. Juniors, why be conventional ! Instead of get- ting your class ring to be worn on your finger, why didn’t you get one that could be worn through your nose, and thus acknowledge your willingness to be led. SOPHOMORES: Thank you for the way you have acknowl- edged our superiority as men and women. That alone, proves that you are a remarkable class! Please try to show that respect and admiration for next years class, although I know that will call for a great deal of imagination on your part after being led by our wonderful class. 72 The Enfield Echo And now, last and least, FRESHMEN : You have been walk- ing about the halls as though you owned them ! This false impres- sion that you give will soon be changed if I know the present Junior class, and I think I do ! When you entered in September, a petition was put before the School Board asking them to install adjustable seats that could be lowered to within a few inches of the floor. Mr. Lee was afraid that one of you might fall off one, and thus involve the school in a damage suit. Vv hen we first saw you in Septem ber, we really thought it was a “blitzkrieg” from a kinder- garten class. And please dear Freshmen, please don’t look so amazed at the dancing ability of our Senior Class. I suppose that if you practice long enough and hard enough, you might be able to make yourself inconspicuous on the dance floor, “but don’t give up the ship”, as the old saying goes. UNDERGRADUATES : Now for a few serious words. The • Class of ’40 really appreciates the fine cooperative spirit you have shown in supporting all our activities, and in helping to make them a success. You have truly helped to make our four years in Enfield High most enjoyable. Continue that fine spirit, and you can really feel that you have achieved your goal, and so Farewell! RESPONSE FOR THE UNDERGRADUATES (By Blair White, President of Junior Class) Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and you senile and sene- scent seniors. It is a usual custom for the president of the Junior Class to make this response to this group of conceited and simple minded Seniors. My colleague said that perhaps only 1 2 of the Junior class would be Seniors next year; I would like to find out how many of this group passed without having to beg the teacher for the credits. He told you that perhaps Room 26 would sound like a cow pasture, but I can truthfully say it sounded like a corral this past year. He advised us on how to take our graduation pictures, I don’t blame him, after seeing how this year’s group came out. Perhaps his suggestion about wearing class rings was something he wanted to pass on to us because my mind takes me back to when they were lead around like that. He compliments the Sophomore class. Well he ought to, be- cause next to us they come first as the prize class. The Freshmen, he says, thought they owned the school. Who has a better right than they, for they don’t have the Class of ’40 around in the afternoon to do such a thing. The Enfield Echo 73 My friend said that the Freshmen were short and baby-like. Well I noticed throughout the year that some of our esteemed Seniors thought them big enough to take out a few nights a week. The Freshmen were perhaps amazed at the Seniors dancing. After all, who would not be, because naturally they thought that bv the time a person got to be a Senior, he should know how to dance ! But to assume a more serious tone, I wish to thank you. Seniors for the three underclasses for the fine leadership and example which we will try to follow.
