fi Zhe Walls of Joy THE ENGLISH HIGH SCHOOL — FOUNDED 1821 " If anything will preserve tranquillity and order in a community, per¬ petuate the blessings of society, and free government, and promote the happi¬ ness and prosperity of a people, it must be diffusion of knowledge. These salutary effects, the committee conceives, would flow from the institution of this seminary.” Subcommittee report — School Report 1820 Foreword ... We, the members of the class of 1956, offer this book in dedication to the spirit and tradition which English High School embodies. From this heritage we have drawn strength and hope. To those students and faculties who have stood as testimony to this spirit, we leave this book firmly resolved to perpetuate that purpose that made The English High School, the oldest of its kind in this land of ours, what it is today. “THE AIM OF EVERY ENGLISH HIGH SCHOOL BOY IS TO BECOME A MAN OF HONOR AND ACHIEVEMENT. " The Class of 1956 The ENGLISH HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK What stirs us more than a memory? Though time may yellow the pages of this book, it can never age the memories of the years spent as a student at English High School. There comes a time in every man ' s life when he must pause to relive in thought the time he spent in the preparation for what he is to become. His school days are most prominent, for his life is a reflection of his learning in those days. As each graduate leaves English High and goes out into the world, we hope that the knowledge gained and the achievements won while a student will uphold him on that rough, sometimes barren yet promising road ahead. We are indeed fortunate to be born in a land where the talents and ambi¬ tions of each individual may find a true and free expression. Many men have passed through the portals of our distinguished school to become some of the leading personalities in our world today. We too can attempt, and will eventually succeed in adding to that long traditional line. The men who gain the most in life are the ones who seek the mosi diligently. He who goes out into the world ' s turmoil and faces " the heart¬ aches and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to " with the in¬ different attitude of getting into a rut and staying there will achieve but ' little. On the other hand, the man who works to better himself, soon finds that he has made progress, not only in his financial, but also in his social standing in his community. He becomes a better and more highly-respected citizen. As life " struts and frets its hour upon the stage " , may we have the strength to forge ahead ever closer to our own, separate goals. We, the class of ' 56, now move out on our own. It is the solemn responsi¬ bility of each of us, to bear the torch of honor as true English High School graduates, so that all mankind may benefit from its flames. — THE EDITORS — Zhe Headmaster ' s June, 1956, will mark the end of our second year in the Fenway. Next September will find here relatively few boys who attended English High School in the South End. Already, to our fresh¬ men and sophomores the old building is a tradition, rather than a memory. The Class of 1956 has both the memory and the tradition. I need not enlarge for you upon the traditions of English High School. Soon you will be part of it, along with the thousands of illustrious sons who have gone forth from the portals of this great school. Whether you become illustrious will depend greatly upon yourself, but whatever you become you will always remain an English High School man. Each of us has a definite place in this world. We are here not by accident, —if or certainly God could have created someone else instead. Your big job in life will be to find your particular spot—not the one that some person wishes for you; rather the one God wants you to take. Do not hesitate to pray to Him for guidance on this essential matter. Someone has said that success comes when preparedness meets oppor¬ tunity. In your search for success, never underestimate your true value. Never forget that you are a rational being with spiritual qualities of intelligence and memory, and will-power. Use these attributes skillfully as you journey through life. You will find obstacles in your pathway. The failure of today may bring the glory of tomorrow. No one can do better than his best. If you do your best and leave the rest to the Lord, you must of necessity achieve success; and genuine success is what I wish for eaah of you.

VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE ' When a nation undergoes radical changes and the various fields o ; f Sci¬ ence, Business, Law, and Trade are revolutionized and expand to enorm¬ ous degrees, it is necessary for the individuals of each community to fuse into one body in the common effort to guide Young America to promising careers. The nation, at large, has Miah J. Falvey heaped demands upon its people for astrophysicists, Nuclear Experts, Missile Technicians and the like. We are certainly on the threshold of a new phase of American History: " The Atomic Age. " We have answered with a Career Guidance Program designed to cater to the indecisive but ambitious student who may seek advice from the experts in their respective fields. Youth has been well informed. Since 1952, when this career guidance program was inaugurated, twenty-four different colleges and universities have given the seniors, through their representatives, a realistic and practical survey of the requirements and opportunities in each particular field.

Fellow Classmates: As the chosen representative ol my classmates I wish to extend the most sincere gratitude to our teachers and alumni for the advice given us in the past four years. For some of us the future holds a college career, for some the world of busi¬ ness, and for others a stay in the armed forces. But wherever each one of us chooses to go, in any section of the world, we will bear with us the proud heritage of English High School. In the future we will endeavor to carry with us the honor of this great institution of learning and will, to the best of our ability, carry on this heritage.

But first a word from our sponsor. Friends, The Foley, Hill, Geller and Gill Dis¬ tilleries have now the honor of announcing a new bottle developed by the Flaherty-Rehfield- Flaherty Glass Company. This new bottle is now covered by the Whipple-Non-Dripple- Nipple. This covering insures your enjoying your favorite beverage down to the last cool, clear drop. Now back to the news: — It was learned early this morning that despite the efforts of government officials residents of East Boston, led by Senator Mike Rosetti and Representatives Bob Pesce and Frank " Pizza Puss " Schettino, will, from now on, be able to dispense with showing their passports upon emerging from the Sumner Tunnel. This step, introduced by Gov. Gerald D ' Avolio is the last step in officially making East Boston part of continental United States. News from Hollywood: — Allen Turner, leading Hollywood producer, and no relation to Lana, has just completed the filming of " The Snows of Mt. Georgakopoullos " starring Vinny Denietolis and Alfred Puopolo as the two bald mountain climbers who attempt to scale the West Roxbury peak and their as¬ tonishment when upon reaching the top they discover Bashful Fred Richards. The intellectual eyes of the nation turn to Boston today as Sandris Stubelis and Eric Straumanis, notorious international gangsters, are indicted today under the National Cribbing Act of 1969 which prohibits anyone from mak¬ ing gypsheets for the College Boards. Local news: — Jack Goon, manager of Boston ' s most popu¬ lar Chinese Restaurant, was today forced to reveal that many of his so-called original Chinese delicacies are really prepared by the Rosenfield-Goldstein Company of 1669 Blue Hill Ave., Dorchester. Flash: — The Zeulli-Saia Insecticide Company have just made public the fact that from their re¬ search ' lavatories ' has come a perfected vac¬ cine that will eliminate completely Falvyitis of the Izzyslip. Washington: ' — The Department of Defence has just released a list of promotions upon which are the names of Leonard Trainer, Anthony Marino and Paul Munsey, local career boys. It seems that they have been promoted, after fourteen years, to privates first-class. Congratulations. The Near East:— Latest reports from the Israelian Border have it that Antoun Ghantous has been seen work¬ ing on the Hajiji Bahba camel ranch as head hump cleaner. At New York today, Dist. At¬ torney Arthur Jackson is scheduled to start pro¬ ceedings against John Christoforo and Gerald " Greasy Thumb " Capone. It seems they were discovered running a business in the back of a barber shop. Something like the library . . . . it ' s called taking book. Tom Porro, eminent labor leader, famous in his younger days for leading lunchroom strikes, has been subpoenaed before the Supreme Court to answer charges made against him by Ralph Schultz of the Schultz, Schuster, Cohen and Hanrahan Bagel Baking Company. It seems that Tom was inciting the bakers to bake the bagels without holes. From the sports world: — The Amateur Athletic Union announced this morning that Dave " the Shiv ' ' Gutbro and Bob " Soft Stomach " McAlpine are competing this evening at Madison Square Garden for the National Fencing Championship. Dave, if you remember, was quite a boy with the cold steel at EHS in his younger days. In the National Hockey League, President Richard Arnone suspended Ricky Gill, wing for Boston Bruins, for his unsportsmanlike conduct at last nite ' s game vs. New York. It seems that Gill was sitting in the penalty box and acquired an immediate dislike for the policeman that was sitting next to him. The officer is resting comfortably at City Hospital. From the fashion world: — Freddy Sweeney, noted designer of women ' s clothes has announced the styles for the sum¬ mer of 1971. Dresses will be designed on the scheme of barbed wire, that is, protecting the property without obstructing the view.

At that time, in addition to the Latin School, there existed only English grammar schools which were believed to be inefficient for pre¬ paring the boy for a successful future. A sub¬ committee, consisting o ! f Samuel A. Wells, a well known merchant; Reverend John Pierpont and Rev. Nathaniel Langdon Frot ' hingham, prominent members of the clerical profession; Lemuel Shaw, who later became the Chief Jus¬ tice of the Commonwealth; and Benjamin Russell, editor of the Columbian Cen ' fcinel, was appointed by the School Committee to consider the subject of providing an advanced school for the youth of the town. This committee, on the 26th of October, pre¬ sented its report recommending that a school be established to be called the English Classical School and to be supported as part of the pub¬ lic school system. The report states that the school should be for the education of boys only who could pass a suitable examination. Over a period of three years a course in English branches, mathematics, and Natural Philosophy would be divided which would be taught by teachers who had graduated from a University. The report closes with the following words;— " Its establishment, they think, would raise the literary and scientific character of ' the town, would incite our youth to a laudable ambition of distinguishing themselves in the pursuit and acquisition of knowledge, and would give strength and stability to the civil and municipal institutions of our country. " in Faneuil Halil on January 15, 1821 at which they voted to establish the English Classical School. This name remained with the school until 1824 when it became known as the English High School. On March 13, 1832 the old name was restored and remained until February, 1833, at which time by a vote of the School Committee it came to be called the English High School. By this name it is still known today. The school opened in May of 1821 in a build¬ ing on Derne Street with Mr. George Barrell Emerson as principal master. The building was made of brick with stone trimmings and con- FIRST SCHOOL-HOUSE 1817 A meeting of the citizens of Boston was held tamed four stories. The bottom floor was divided into two sections, the westerly section containing Hero Engine No. 6 and the easterly serving as the quarters for the town watch. The remaining three floors contained classrooms fitted with pine benches and desks for the pupils. The only heating system was an open fireplace directly in front of which stood the teacher ' s desk and chair. Behind the school was a yard which was used for recreation. Solomon P. Miles took over the duties as head master when Mr. Sherman retired on May 19, 1823. Shortly after, on November 2, 1824, the school moved to Pinckney Street where it remained for twenty years. Upon the retire¬ ment of Mr. Miles in 1837 Thomas Sherwin be¬ came the new head master. Previously he had served for nine years as sub-master and re¬ mained at his new post for forty-one years until his death in July 1869. Few men have so dearly left their imprint upon a school as did Mr. Sherwin. He was an earnest advocate of the superior claims of scientific study, on the grounds of utility, of mental discipline, and of moral influence. SECOND SCHOOL-HOUSE 1824 English High, under his sage direction, be¬ came widely known for its preparatory course in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Per¬ haps his greatest contribution was his con¬ tinued emphasis toward " the making of men. ' ' It was his ambition that English High School should send out into the active pursuits of li fe young men with the intellectual and moral equipment, the force of character and purpose which he deemed essential both to good citi¬ zenship and to business or professional success. His earnest and able advocacy of all measures to enlarge its usefulness will, for all time, asso¬ ciate his name honorably with the history of the school. In 1844 the school was moved from Pinckney St. to a new building on Bedford St., which was to accommodate both the English High School and the Latin School. During the thirty- seven years it remcrined there, the enrollment tripled and it was necessary to hoild some classes in the school houses on Harrison Ave., Mason and South Streets. It is interesting to note that when the school moved into its new building on Bedford Street, the Public Garden was a barren waste. The tide flowed over the Back Bay, and the site of the school later on Montgomery Street and Warren Avenue was an unreclaimed marsh. Military drill was established as part of the school curriculum in 1864. The boys had pre¬ viously drilled without arms under the instruc¬ tion of the teachers. General Hobart Moore was appointed instructor for both schools. Mr. Charles M. Cumston, in whose honor the undergraduate scholarship is named, suc¬ ceeded Mr. Sherwin in September of 1869 and remained until 1874 when he resigned after a distinguished career. Following Mr. Cumston ' s resignation, Mr. Edwin P. Seavers, an assistant professor of mathematics at Harvard, was ap¬ pointed Head Master. In the following years between 1875 and 1880, because of the establishment of the East Boston High School and new district rules, the THIRD SCHOOL-HOUSE 1844 enrollment of our school went down. Mr. Seavers, then principal was in 1880 relieved of his duties as head-master, in order that he might accept the position of Superintendent of Schools. Mr. Seavers was succeeded by Francis A. Waterhouse, a graduate of Bowdoin College who at the time was principal of Newton High School. It was during Mr. Waterhouse ' s ad¬ ministration that we received our fourth build¬ ing, located on Montgomery St. in Boston. This building which we received in 1881 was stated to be the most modern and elaborate building in the whole public school system at that time. During the administration of Mr. Waterhouse, our school enrollment doubled in numbers. Upon the unexpected death of Mr. Water- house, Mr. Bccbson, a Harvard graduate, was dhosen to become principal of the most out¬ standing school in the country. It was during Mr. Babson ' s administration that the system of heads of departments was introduced. Mr. Babson, because of ill health, resigned in 1908 to be succeeded by Mr. John F. Casey, also a Harvard graduate. Under Mr. Casey ' s administration, the numbers rose so high, that in 1909, it was necessary to establish an annex, whidh was located at the Patrick A. Collins Building. Mr. Casey remained principal until 1915, when, because of age limit, he retired. Mr. Snow, a graduate of Boston University, then took over the post as head-master of Eng¬ lish High School. Mr. Snow, although prepar¬ ing himself in college for teaching mathematics, won fame and recognition as a French scholar. He became the first head of the French depart¬ ment when it was introduced along with the other departments during Mr. Babson ' s admin¬ istration. FOURTH SCHOOL-HOUSE 1881 Before the Centenary Year was over, Mr. Snow was elected assistant Superintendent of Schools. He was succeeded by Mr. Walter F. Downey. Mr. Downey, whose term as head¬ master ended only two years ago, brought many honors to the school. In 1922 Gov. Sal- tonstall appointed Mr. Downey Commissioner of Education. In 1938, during Mr. Downey ' s absence, Al¬ bert F. Reed, a former head of our Latin and German departments, assumed the responsi¬ bility of the leadership and guidance of our school. After Mr. Downey ' s return from his leave of absence, in 1938, he remained head¬ master until 1953, when he retired after his long eventful career in the Boston Public School System. In the summer of 1953, the Boston School Committee appointed Mr. M. Henry Mclnerny as Head-master of English High, which had just moved from the old building on Montgom¬ ery St. to its new location on Louis Pasteur Avenue, directly across the street from its ancient rival Boston Latin School. Mr. Mclnerney, a former Head-master of Girl ' s High and a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy, prepared himself well for his duties as Head-master, by securing such degrees as A.B., A.M., ED. M. Mr. Mclnerney adso enjoys the distinction of being a member of a Board of Councilors, which govern all athletic activities in the Com¬ monwealth of Massachusetts. English High has had a long and meritorious history. Members of its faculty have served as leaders in the administration of the school sys¬ tem. Its graduates, many and widespread, have brought distinction to the old school which now looks to the future confidently under the able guidance of the present faculty and the new Head-master Mr. M. Henry Mclnerney to whom we leave the future history of the Eng¬ lish High School. PRESENT SCHOOL-HOUSE 1954 mm li £ ,, Aliiil » ■ ij p ■ fit T T ■ fPp ? , m ■ i 1» j.

The representative from English High School was David Guthro, a member of the senior class. A preliminary meeting of the Representatives from Suffolk County was held in February. The meeting was proposed in order to acquaint the students with the duties which they assumed during March. When the Student Representatives from all over Massachusetts assembled in the State House, His Excellency, the Governor, and His Excellency, the Student Governor, addressed the joint convention. Shortly after the Student House and Senate convened. The Student Governor ' s Council held hearings which were presided over by His Honor, the Student Lieutenant Governor. Student Government originated about five years ago through the conjunction of the administration of the Commonwealth and the school departments. Its purpose is to help the future leaders of our country and to better understand the function of their state government in which they will cctively participate on Student Government Day. DAVID E. GUTHRO The Home and School Association The English High School Home and School Association held its first meeting of the year on November 7, 1955. Prepared by Mr. Hennessy, the program included selections by the E.H.S. Band, a welcome address by Mr. Mclnerney who introduced Mrs. Dominic D ' Avolio, the President of the Association, and a very interesting demonstration by Mr. Robert Evans ' Modern Language Classes. After the program in the hall, the many parents who attended visited the teachers in their classrooms. Other meetings of great value have taken place during the school year and have certainly brought about better understanding between the parents and the faculty.

The English High School Association, the in¬ corporated society of alumni, was founded in 1853, with the stated object of promoting the usefulness and the prosperity of the English High School of Boston. The specific objectives of the association are first, to increase, in such ways as may from time to time be deemed expedient, the facilities of school for affording a thorough commercial and general education to the youth of the city of Boston. Secondly, to render such aid, financial or otherwise to the pupils of the school or gradu¬ ates as their circumstances may require. Thirdly, to promote and preserve an ac¬ quaintance and friendship between those who have been associated as pupils and teachers of the school. The membership is open to all teachers of the school, past or present, to all past pupils and to present senior classes. The association holds its annual meetings at the .schoolhouse or hotels. The English High School Association cele¬ brated the 100th anniversary of its founding May 3, 1954. Governor Christian A. Herter issued a formal proclamation declaring the day E. H.S. Association Day. More than 800 mem¬ bers and friends attended the anniversary din¬ ner, which was also a testimonial to Dr. Walter F. Downey, distinguished head-master of the School for more than 30 years. General Mat¬ thew B. Ridgway, ' 12, Army Chief of Staff, was honorary chairman. The Association has made available num¬ erous scholarships to deserving students. In 1946 more than $50,000 was raised and added to the invested funds of the Association, mak¬ ing a total of more than $100,000. The income from this sum has been used to further the aims of the Association. No school has had a more loyal or notable body of ’alumni than ours. Many members of the Association have made outstanding con¬ tributions to their communities, the state and nation in peace and war. They have consistently through the years demonstrated a strong feeling of tradition and an intense loyalty to that tradition. There have been significant displays of their awareness of the school ' s permanent place in the community, for every twenty-five years dating from 1871 there have been notable celebrations to em¬ phasize the fact. On every occasion that an opportunity presents itself our alumni had shown its organization and energy in advanc¬ ing the fortune of the school. We are proud of our alumni and join its association in the high hope that those that follow will be equally proud of us. NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Front Row (1. to r.): Manuel Brown, Sandris ' Stubelis, Joel Weinstein, Marvin Schuster, Richard Salter, Frederick Sweeney, James Kenigs Rear Row (1. to r.): William Wessels, Peter Desio, Leo Coppolino, Eric Straumanis, John Cieslik, Anthony Zaremba, Victor Kajko The English High School of Boston chapter of the National Honor Society was sanctioned in 1950 by the following charter: " Whereas, character, scholarship, leadership, and service are cardinal qualities of encouragement in a!ll schools, therefore, the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools of the National Associ¬ ation of Secondary-School Principals gives, grants, and delegates through the authority, the privilege and power to establish, conduct, and administer the English High School of Boston Chapter as a local chapter of the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools ... " Election to the National Honor Society is one of the highest honors that can be granted to a high sahool student. The primary consideration for can¬ didacy is scholarship. Juniors and Seniors who have received honor grades for the two consecutive marking periods prior to the date of election are considered for membership. Further considerations are service to the school and community, character, conspicuous achievement, and extra-curricular activities. Members must maintain these high standards throughout the remainder of their secondary-school course. The exercises for the induction of new members were conducted at a January assembly. Members admitted at that time were—Seniors: John F. Cieslik, Leo M. Coppolino, Peter J. Desio, Victor Kajko, Janis V. Kenigs, Richard T. Salter, and Joel A. Weinstein. Juniors who qualified were Manuel W. Brown, Albert E. Craig, William E. Wessels, and Anthony J. Zaremba. Members of the Class of ' 56 who were admitted the previous year are Marvin A. Schuster, Eric R. Straumanis, Sandris J. Stubelis, and Fredrick L. Sweeney. The impres¬ sive ceremonies were climaxed by the awarding of the certificates of membership by our Headmaster. The National Honor Society is but one of the many groups that typify the high standards and traditions of the English High School. Scholarships and Awards toam mrnmimm mmmm iffffVf K • a » »« «» ' «n - t r vtsKfK It is a heartening thing for an able boy without personal means to know that there are many directions from which help to a further education may come. Many English High boys have been greatly helped in the past and all indications are that help will be greater in the future. English High boys are to be found pursuing prominent careers in many of our greatest universities. Over the years the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has received, among others, winners of the Flint, Sherwin or Hayden scholarships. The Cumston at Bowdoin, the Clarence Barron and Albert H. Wiggin at the school of the recipient ' s choice are among the better known of the many opportunities afforded the able, ambitious youth. Over and above the scholarships granted by English High itself there is a legion of schools that, generously and wisely call to the promising mind knowing that herein lies the safety and progress of our future. Youth should be grateful and count its blessings. Aside from the scholarships there are many awards that are given. Many of these, such as the Cumston Prize which is awarded to the outstanding member of the graduating class, are presented on the night of graduation. The awards and prizes given are too many to enumerate but all indicate the desire on the part of the school and its aluimni to recognize merit used to help and nurture promising youth that they may become men of honor and achievement. History of the Class of 1956 FRESHMAN 1952-53 It was a September day when only those who wished to express their ignorance and fulfill their intellectual curiosity attempted to take over " and express their cure-all remedies for EHS. We were greeted at the door by the Frazier-Keelon Syndicate who brainwashed us on the glories of a future lavishly-embellished ' carpet of greenbacks. " As Mr. Frazier so aptly put it: " Money tallks! " We were escorted by the indispensable Mr. Atwood under whose leader¬ ship and guidance we were to select the course of study best suited to aid us in later life. Of course, we didn ' t win the Latin game but we did have a certain note of distinction added to the prestige of our school when General Matthew B. Ridgeway, an English High School graduate, was appointed chief-of-staff of the United States Army. Our basketball team won the City Championship only to lose the Tech Tourney to Mission High School by one point. Perhaps the most frightening experience was the first time we went to lunch. Of course, the food looked good but it didn ' t alter the fact that somebody had slipped into the school cafeteria and decomposed the gastronomicall compounds prepared on the preceding day by our brilliant dietician staff. Although sports are pleasing and exciting, we realized that if we wanted to remain mem¬ bers of this school, the finest in the nation, we would have to buckle down and struggle through the oncoming year. Of course, it wasn ' t as hazardous as it may sound, not with Mr. Falvey giving weekly suspensions or " fur¬ loughs " as they were referred to by the pupils. SOPHOMORE 1953-54 After which seemed to be the shortest of all summer vacations, we found ourselves once again prancing back through the doors of the " old " school. Nothing had changed. " Doc " Frazier was still in his lab mixing iron and sulfur which would yield only sick stomachs and poor appetites. A fiendish gleam would register in his eyes as fumes of smoke slowly rose from a menacing test-tube) About the only noticeable change was in Mr. Falvey; he seemed to get smaller as we grew taller. The " smoking lounges " were open and, once again, filled with nervous students trying to get in a few " drags " between classes. With the excep¬ tion of a few " milers " who weren ' t fast enough, the members of the track team were about the only ones who never got caught. All these things plus cut-slips made our second year look brighter. Our basketball team, after losing by a dis¬ puted two points to Mission League, was again whirlpooled into the sportlight. It was after this successful season that Mr. Sullivan retired as coach. He now resides in the commercial department and enjoys a keen delight in taking pot shots at the basket under his desk. Things got even brighter the day the school caught fire. It was Mr. Atwood ' s deduction that some oily trash had attained the kindling point. It seems as though the students, in their eager¬ ness to help the fire department, completely halted progress. Five men found themselves completely blocked off from the school by joy¬ ful students singing: " Let it burn! Let it burn) Let it burn! " And then, over the " grapevine " , came the startling revelation that we were getting a new school. The new EHS was to be located on Avenue Louis Pasteur directly across the street from ' ' that ' ' school and, (we hoped), the civiliz¬ ing influence of Girl ' s Latin School. The only impediment to our morale was the loss of Mr. Downey. We were crestfallen. Because of re¬ tirement limits, Mr. Downey was forced to " evacuate the premises” and retire from a long and successful career in the Boston School Department. JUNIOR 1954-55 Will wonders never cease! Here we are in our junior year and in the middle of the Fen¬ way. It was no wonder we felt sea-sick when we entered. At the helm stood Mr. Maclnemy. The fresh tang of the salt-sea air prophesied the coming of choppy waters and a future tempest. " We ' ll weather the storm, " Mr. Maclnerney cheerfully greeted us. As the year dwindled, it was plain that we were progressing rapidly on our trek to the top. Mr. Maclnemy proved himself to be a most competent headmaster and we felt sure, that under his commendable leadership, we would attain even greater heights. In the fall, our football team, under the able coaching of Mr. Stewart, took to the gridiron and played fine ball. The Cross Country team won the State Championship. The Hockey sea¬ son found us with a young, promising team, not yet mature enough to take the City League, but performing creditably. Our track team won another State Championship in the feature two- mile relay race at Belmont, and the Spring brought color and a sensational baseball team to the Fenway, for in twelve games our team remained untied and undefeated. The traditional Memorial-day exercises were held and proved itihat, although we had a new school and a new headmaster, we had still maintained our traditions. We liquidated the Seniors in May and assumed the responsibilities that our dictator¬ ship had to offer. First, we clearly explained to all (that we were the new commandants and, as seniors-to-be, had precedence in the " smok¬ ing lounges.” Of course, just as we had everything under control, somebody said we could have the summer off. This motion considerably impaired our plans for expansion. We took the sad news in stride; we were men now. With much reluc¬ tance, we crushed our butts and left ' the hal¬ lowed halls hoping to return speedily in the Fall (Sur-r-r-e we did!). SENIOR 1955-56 For the first time in ' four years, we were glad to get back to school. Only one year left. It engendered a feeling of elation! If we had heard more about the Frazier-Keelon Fund, we might not have been so gleeful (as one bee- bopper might say to another). Early in October, we were introduced to bi-monthlies and immediately tendered a dis¬ like for them. Academic ally, we were still a bit ignorant (we were incorrigible), but we thought we were brilliant. Something was definitely wrong! This conclusion was formulated and finally arrived at when one of our " gentleman” seniors introduced a word, new to us, into our midst: osmosis. Besides pondering upon the deep affection for their students, the faculty spent their nights dreaming up exams and new rules for the morning bulletin. To lull them¬ selves to sleep, they counted red pencils, red ink, and other and sundry devices. Companionship is always a wonderful thing, and so we adopted a mythical character: " Wally Pitts " : who became the " pigeonhole " , the " blamee " , for all nefarious misdeeds ac¬ complished incognito. He also became an " umpteen letter man " participating in all sports and being the chief cheer-leader for EHS. The Blue-and-Blue football team " rocked " their way through the season and met Latin on the field. That day the football game was auspiciously revolutionized: racoon coats were sold in place of the usual peanuts and popcorn, and Latin, a bit piqued at our military tactics, coaxed a zephyr wind to tip the immacullately- white helmets of the Drill Team! The game found Gerry D ' Avolio quarter-backing Lyons to some of the most sensational runs of the sea¬ son. Two long runs by Lyons ran the total over a hundred and thirty yards enabling us to de¬ capitate Latin 20 to 14. The end of the football season saw us ap¬ proaching the worrisome end of the year. With " great expectations, " we found ourselves look¬ ing forward to some successful years in college or business. We hadn ' t graduated yet, though we still had our class-day ceremonies that wilil live forever in our memories. The windings of those days of the past approached a climax in June when we left those memories on a low road in the background, and prepared to face the world, deeply conscious that we were leav¬ ing an education and a school behind us of which we could truly be proud. Our Alma Mater, our own English High School, The old school that each son reveres, Leaving your portals for life ' s great adventure, Recalling our happiest of years, Reliving in mem ' ry each thrill of vict ' ry— The constancy of fellowship, too— Now we praise your name and hail your honor, ever true: We are men who battle for the glorious Blue and Blue. We ' re Men of Blue and we ' ll strive with our might To carry your banner on high, Evermore true to the old Blue and Blue—- May your laurels e ' er reach to the sky! Shoulder to shoulder, and bolder and bolder, Together we march to the fore: Now there ' s nothing in the world can halt or mar our plan, With the Men of Blue forever loyal—ev ' ry man] Stout Hearted Men THY IVIED WALLS O ' English High, thou art our own We ' re ever true to thee. Thy ivied walls of sturdy stone Be as our comradery. But though we traverse ever far And spread o ' er earth ' s great plain, The hardened world will never mar Thy spirit and thy flame. If we look back unto thy light And remember days of old, The shining radiance of thy might Will stand out true and bold. O ' English High, thou art our own And evermore shall be. Thy ivied walls will e ' er be known Throughout eternity. Robert E. Stetson " 56 " Valedictory Young, eager and free we step out into the turmoil of a vast and troubled world. The nucleus of our ideas and ideals has been formed in these past several years at English High. Man, we are told, is the lengthened shadow of the boy. Thus the environment that we have enjoyed and the habits and ' knowledge that we have gained will, in great measure, motivate our future actions. The years ahead pulsate with promise. This—our graduation from English High—marks only the end of the beginning. Many of us will go on to further our education,- others will hopeiully challenge the business world, and for some the armed forces will offer service and adventure. The paths we shall follow spread out in different, devious directions. They will sometimes run tortuously, often precariously, but it is our fervent hope that it will be ever upwards. But whatever the future may portend we will all ways fondly recall our days at English High, a school whose purpose is not to reject but to receive and patiently to nurture and direct its charges in the paths that they should go. Truly it has been to us an Alma Mater. Thus it is with these thoughts that the Class of ' 56 moves on into the future to meet its challenge.

TOOMEY School: Boston College High Ambition: To open and own a business Hobbies: Basketball AIVARS VITINS Ambition: Civil Engineer College: Northeastern Hobbies: Basketball A tkletics FALL and WINTER 1955 H FOOTBALL After a four week postponement be¬ cause of the polio epidemic in Massachu¬ setts, the Blue and Blue, under Coach Bill Stewart, started what was to be a year of rebuilding a team that had lost eight of its eleven starters to graduation the previous June. But with a solid defence and a quick-witted, speedy back-field the team commenced its season playing Technical High in the annual Columbus Day double-header at the White Stadium. Although the game was tight ail the way and could have gone to either team, English emerged the victor 14-7. Dave Hill of baseball renown was the outstanding player of the afternoon with a fifty-yard run after interception TD. The other Blue and Blue touchdown was carried across by Co-Capt. Jack Lyon. Jerry D ' Avolio made the point after conversions. It is to be regretted that the customary Groton School game, next on the usual schedule, was cancelled due to the existing epidemic. After an afternoon of " fumbllitis " and the temporary loss of quarterback D ' Avolio the Blue and Blue fought with Rojdbury Memorial 6-6. With increasing injuries and innumerable costly penalties, English High lost its onlly game to a strong East Boston squad 12-6. The only Blue Touchdown was scored by D ' Avolio. Still with an unbelievable record of having not more than three first downs made against us in any single game thus far, the Blue of Louis Pasteur Avenue met the Red of Codman Square and made it a black day in Dorchester. En¬ glish moved almost at will and trounced " Dot " 19-0. Touchdowns by Jack Lyon, Tony Williams, and Bobby McManamin, and the fine defensive work of Paul Saia, Harris Lansky, Marty Sibella, and Bill McCarthy featured the play. Veterans Day brought the B.C. High game and the Boys in Blue downed the highly touted junior Eagles 7-0 with Co-Capt. elect Denny Clifford scoring and D ' Avolio making the conversion. AND THEN IT CAME .... Thanksgiving morn brought the Purple whm, in the 69th annual Turkey Day grid classic, were overwhelmingly favored. The " game fever " was quite noticeable on both sides with rallies held at both the schools. ' 9 City Champions ' First Row — Robert LeBlanc, Paul Saia, Frank Schettino, Co-Captains Gerald D ' Avolio and John Lyon, Michael Sanimar T o, Dennis Clifford, Paul Bowman. Second Row — Mr. Stewart, Douglas Williams, James Mawn, Daniel Ryan, Bernard McGaffigan, Walter Burnes, Jesse Johnson, Thompson Williams, Martin Sibella, Harris Lansky, Albert Sherman, Mgr., Mr. King. Third Row — Mr. Gillis, Robert Donovan, Kenneth Keating, Lou Musco Jr., Frederick Gates, Ronald Price, William McCarthy, Robert McManamin, Thomas Grenham, Charles Babb. y- Fourth Row — Thomas Connolly, James Lynch, Kenneth Skinner, Henry Welch, Richard Lyons, William Kiley, Kevin Stuart, James Sullivan, Harold Timilty, Mr. Mclnerney. It was a chilly, but sunny day and both teams were up for the game. Before the crowd of 16,000 had settled comfortably in their seats and before TV fans could correctly focus their sets, Jack " rabbit " Lyon took a handoff from D ' Avoflio and with nice change of pace, raced 73 yards around right end for the first Blue tally. Latin then scored twice, but in the second period Lyon, again carrying, tried the left end for 67 yards and the second English touch¬ down. With the score 14-14 in the third period English moved the ball deep into Purple Territory and with a short pass to end Frank Schettino scored the game clinching Touchdown. Oscars should go to the Blue line for making three unbelievable goal-line defences. Thus ended the 1955 football season with English beating Latin 20-14 and keeping the series at 29-27 and 13 ties, in favor of the Blues. Thus English with a 4-1-1 record was crowned the City Champions. FOOTBALL WINNERS OF THE VARSITY " E " Larry Aiello Walter Burnes Paul Bowman Co-Capt. Elect Denny Clifford Co-Capt.

The Columbus Day meet found our harriers pitted against three tough city teams and our invited guest, Newton High School. Even against these teams the Blue and Blue still won by a margin of twelve points over its sturdiest opponent, Technical High School. The individual winner was Bill Harvey of Newton. Ed Coyle, the front runner for English in this race, finished a close second. A week later English again passed the two and a half mile test by winning the City meet. Tomkins of Tech was the individual winner, with our top man in this race, Tom Ellison, finishing third. The sun refused to shine on us a week later when by a margin of six points the regimental crown passed to our top opponent, Charlestown High. Bob Stronache, captain for Charlestown, ran well to win with the first man for English, Ed Coyle. For the first time since cross-country began our team placed three men in the top ten in the State meet. This, however, was not enough to beat the experienced Watertown team who won the Class A title over our Blue and Blue harriers. Don Luisi, of Rockland, broke the tape with a new record of 12:41. Our first runner, captain Tom Forro, finished fifth. Although we had lost the State Meet, the officials presiding thought us worthy of representing Massachusetts in the New England Inter-Scholastic Cross-Country Championship. Although we did not expect to win, we did make a good showing for our school. This was a great honor and a thrill for us to be representing not only for our school or city but the whole state. This year ' s top seven runners were composed of six seniors and a sopho¬ more. They were, (in the order that they finished in the New England Inter¬ state Competition): Paul Ellison, a sophomore; Ed Coyle, Tom Porro, Bill CROSS COUNTRY POINT WINNERS WINNERS OF THE VARSITY ”E " Warren F.

Oct. 20 Regimental Championships Nov. 7 State meet Nov. 12 New England Interscholas ' tic INDOOR TRACK REGIMENTAL CHAMPIONS With far more boys turning out than expected and many young hope¬ fuls, outlook for a successful indoor season was running high. In Commander Ralph Colson ' s Fargo Meet the English tracksters looked very strong. Three out of the four exclusive high school events were won by Blue runners. Jim Dockett took the dash while Jim Keaney and Leroy Ramsay, who was wearing a new version of the Blue and Blue uniform, won the six-hundred and one- thousand yard runs respectively. In the Amateur Athletic Union division of the meet Bob Kenny, a newcomer to the school, and Ed Coyle scored second and fourth places respectively. Co Ca taing Moving back to the East Newton Street Armory we were able to overcome Boston Tech for the first time in three years. In that Tri-Meet with Dorchester, English placed seven out of eight times in the class B and C hurdles. Leroy Ram¬ say once again proved to be too much for the competition and won the one- thousand with ease. Dick Rollins, a senior and a newcomer to the track team, ran away with the mile. In the annual Boston Athletic Assn, games, where the men are usually sep¬ arated from the boys, the Blue and Blue placed two in the final tallies. Leroy Ramsay won second place in a photo¬ finish one-thousand yard run and Bill Knowlton took a third in the six-hundred. In the State Meet held on January 28th, English placed fifth in the stiff Class A competition. Once again our top men from t h e championship cross-country Thomas Porro Joseph Connolly INDOOR TRACK team came forth to raise the Blue banners. Bill Knowlton took a third in the six-hun¬ dred; Ed Coyle and Dick Rollins placed third and fifth in the mile respectively. In the most spectacular race of the day, Le¬ roy Ramsay, avenging ihimself for his BAA loss, won the thousand yard run in near record time to beat fellow team mate and Captain Tom Porro who placed fifth. After vigorous training for the state meet we were prepared to again take on the boys from Technical and beat them once more. Leading placers were Cap¬ tain Tom Porro, Leroy Ramsay, Captain Joe Connolly and a new discovery, John Lampkin. While Coach Cliff Ronan left for the Nationals with Ramsay, Porro and Knowl- ton, the team, under Captain Joe Connolly, took on Trade and Dorchester and beat them both with ease. As prepared as we would ever be, we entered the Regimentals to find that our biggest threat was not Technical, but our arch and old rival Latin School. Hav¬ ing won the Reggies with such ease in times past we were finding it increasing¬ ly difficult in recent years. But overcom¬ ing a point deficit caused by the field events we emerged the victors for the thirty-sixth time in the forty-nine years of regimental competition. The real battle was in the stiffly competed Class A. Tom Porro, twice a Reggie record breaker in the longer distances, moved down to the 440 and won with overwhelming ease. Leroy Ramsay, our one thousand yard State Champ, took his specialty without any competition. A standout for the Double Blue in this meet was John Lamp- kin, a comparatively new boy in track circles. Other scorers, of the senior class, were Ed Coyle, Jim Keaney, Bill Knowlton, Dick Rollins and John Sakakini. We congratulate Mr. Ronan on his splendid achievements coaching the team and look forward for a successful outdoor season. WINNERS OF THE VARSITY “E " James H. Allen Richard S. Areglado Joseph E.

With a fine set of returning veterans and the City Championship in mind, the Blue and Blue looked forward to a very successful season. At the start of the season Captains Gary Cronin and Gerry D ' Avolio and their teammates were ready and rarin ' to go. The season started with an overconfident English sextet just drawing with Trade School 3-3. Captain Gerry scored twice and Captain Gary accounted for the third goal. Lou Quercia excelled on defence. In the next frame we met Dorchester and went on a scoring spree beating them 8-5. Goals by Mel Kaufman, Rick Gill, Bob LeBlanc, each getting one; two for Jim McGee and Captain Gerry with a hat trick. Our next contest was with Tech, the predicted city champs. But with goals All- Star defenceman George Dick and Bob LeBlanc and the spectacular goal tending of Tom Connelly we pulled it out of the bag and emerged into first place of the league by beating them 2-1. The Boys in Blue took a firm grip on the newly acquired first place standing by soundly trouncing the " Purple Terrors " from across the Avenue 4-1. Again it was Captain Gerry with two and Bob LeBlanc and George Dick with one each. In the next two games, which were in the second round of City League play we Co-Captains Gary Cronin and Gerald D ' Avolio beat Trade school and toyed with Memo¬ rial to the tune of 10-1. But the big game of the season was here. We again met Technical and with the great help of Goal- tender Tom Connelly and superb defence work on the part of George Dick and Lou Quercia we beat them for the second time 2-0. Both goals were by junior Bob Donovan with assistance by Jimmy Mawn. On the annual Washington ' s Birth¬ day card we again met the boys in purple and downed them in a close one by the score of 1-0, the goal being scored by Gerry " Clutch " D ' Avolio. By winning the City Championship we entered the State Tournament quarter¬ finals and were beaten by a superior Natick High School team. But aid told the season was quite successful with a 9-1-1 record. On the All-City team English placed George Dick, Gerry D ' Avolio, Garry Cronin and Tom Connelly. Gerry was the high scorer in the City of Boston and George Dick was chosen on the Record-American-Advertiser All-Scholas¬ tic Dream Team of 1956. We wish to congratulate our cham¬ pions, our coach and our manager, Rocky Arnone, for the fine job they have done in representing English High School and the Class of 1956.

Stewart, who is celebrating his tenth year as coach at EHS, looks forward to perhaps another city championship. At the printing of this yearbook the Double Blue has already put three games under its belt with sound victories over B. C. High, Memorial and Tech. The nucleus of this year ' s team is one of great fielding. Back from his starting role last year is Capt. Jerry D ' Avolio, who, incidentally, was chosen the outstanding Italian-American athlete of the Greater Boston area. Bob McManamin, an inlfielder of last year ' s team, has been switched to the out¬ field and Jimmie Mown has been moved to second. Larry AieMo, stand-in for all-star catcher Norm Chaban, last year, is sharing the backstop position with Bob LeBlanc. A great deal of this season ' s successfulness rests on the bat of Frank " Stroker " Schettino, the Blue and Blue ' s hard-hitting third sacker. The pitching duties are being left to two of last year ' s team, John Cieslik, the Blue ' s great relief artist and Dave Hill, who was undefeated in aity play last year with a record of 6-0. Newcomers to the roster, some of whom were on last year ' s JV, are Fred Sweeney at third, Bob Scara at first, Denny Clifford and Dick Montgomery at shortstop, and Walter Burnes on the mound. I wmA BASEBALL Knitted into the league game schedule are contests with Lawrence Acad¬ emy, Medford High, Watertown High, and our perennial opponent, Groton School. These games plus the regular schedule afford the team a busy season. It is hoped that the team will achieve the success they deserve. Despite the expected loss of many capable players, the squad is still capable of main¬ taining the usual high standard of English High teams. MEMBERS OF THE VARSITY SQUAD F. Sweeney R. Deauvreux R.

However, in spite of the snow and inclement weather conditions, we started our training on the scheduled April 5th. Many boys from our Indoor Regimental Championship Team returned to once again don the Blue and Blue track uniform. Of course at such an early date it is hard to tell who will become the Outdoor Regimental Champs, but we believe that we shall have the team that will win it for us. The strongest of our classes is A, in which we find such champions as Jim oc kett and Joe Connolly battling it outt in TWO MILE RELAY TEAM PENN REL ays the dash. lorn Form has returned tor the quarter, after running the 1000 during the In¬ door Season. Tom looks good but so does Jam Keaney, another of our top 440 men. The ' 55 State Champ in the 1000, Bob Kenney, and the ' 56 State Champ, LeRoy Ramsay, will turn out many interesting halves during the coming season. In fact there will be numerous half- milers combing the track this year. Stiff com¬ petition is found in the mile with Ed Coyle and Dick Rollins battling it out for top honors. In our field events, which were a main factor in our winning the Indoor Reggie Title, Brad Whipple is showing his usual promise in the high jump. John Sakakini and Sbordone will also be top men in the field events. Mr. Ronan, T. Porro, E. Coyle, L. Ramsay, R. Kenney, W.

For a period at four or five years, we not only won the League team cham¬ pionship but captured the individual title as well. Certain members of those teams went on to win berths on the varsity teams at Harvard, Boston College, Boston University, and Bowdoin. Since that happy period, however, we have had our troubles. Although our teams have done well, they have not suc¬ ceeded in winning the top spot entitling them to enter the quarter finals of the State championship. Last year the team did moderately well and it was hoped that this would be our year, but expected strength was lost for various reasons. Some of the under class boys look promising and it is hoped that a sound team will develop in the next few years. The season opened April 6th will be the first match played against South Boston High. This introduced a nine-game schedule, which determines the league champion, who automatically qualifies as a quarter-finalist in the State Fourball Championship to be held at Winchester Country Club June 11. A week prior to this the State Medal Championship will be decided at the Concord Country Club on June 4. Despite a slow start due to poor weather, the team shows fine spirit and will make an earnest effort to represent its school as valiantly as it can by keeping the ball in play and pitching tight.

As is usual for any organization of this kind, practice is essential. There¬ fore, this year the Trick Drill Team met weekly on Friday mornings for instruc¬ tions in new maneuvers and for polishing up the old ones. Prospects for the next year are good. The training of next year ' s team has already started, and an even fuller program has been prepared by Captain Fisher. Many thanks must be given to Captain Fisher, as it was largely through his untiring efforts that our Drill Team came into being. Devoting many extra hours to securing equipment, drilling the unit, and working out its program, he set an example of " snap and precision " for all on the team to follow.
