WITH A FUTURE
If employed at the Telephone Company you'll
be helping to win the war, because communi-
cations is one of the most essential wartime
industries. At the same time you will earn good
money under pleasant working conditions.
Here is an opportunity offering you far more
than "just a place to work." Girls of the Senior
Class should investigate this opportunity. Train-
ing courses may be arranged so as not to inter-
fere with studies or graduation. Girls in the
junior Class are welcome to make inquiries look-
ing to employment later on.
Good salary from the time you start training,
and prospects for advancement. Whether you
stay with us a few years or many, you will find
the wholesome, congenial atmosphere of tele-
phone work abundantly worth while.
Your teacher or vocatiomzl advisor can tell you
more about work in this interesting industry.

Those of us with good memories can
vividly look back to the close of the sum-
mer of '42 to that thrilling day when we,
the Class of '45, entered F. H. S.
Little did the teachers realize the impor-
tance of our class! Little did the upper-
classmen acknowledge the persisting en-
durance and the dominating courage of us,
"the sophisticated sophomores."
We had been here but a month when
the seniors threw a shindig for us in Lin-
coln School Hall. They called it the Senior-
Soph Dance, and what a reasonable price
for us Sophs!
In the beginning our class appeared to
be an ignorant one, for during the first
term no one made the High Honor Roll.
Many tears were shed, I presume, over
this strange calamity!
As tradition had it, each sophomore
class elected a class adviser. The first
choice of our class was none other than the
petite and charming Miss Mary Cunning-
ham. Her careful guidance and good lead-
ership have placed our class in the ranks
of the best. Our heartiest congratulations
to her for such a splendid job!
A few months later, there were still no
names on the high honor roll for soph-
omores. My, my, what shame on our class!
Along in March came the results of our
sophomore election! We chose Donald
Chasse, Presidentg Madeline Falconi,
Vice-President, Irene Vitali, Secretaryg
and Paul Flaherty, Treasurer.
A great surprise came o'er the Sophs in
May. Yes, that rare miracle had hap-
pened! That unexpected goal was attained
tor something!! Kenneth Speigel made
the High Honor Roll. Mother, pin a rose
The end of our Sophomore year was in
sight and the summer vacation looked very
promising! tPromising from the stand-
point that we could stay up late at night
and get up late in the morning! 1
When we returned to our "Elmer Mat-
ter" in the following September, we were
no longer those puny, undernourished
sophomores! No, we had now risen to the
rank of powerful and charming juniors!
tSo we told ourselves! 5
The first name in the news during our
junior year was that of Nancy Ford for her
achievement in making the high honor roll.
At last we were giving a true example of
our class, scholastically and extra-cur-
For the second time in our high school
career we were called upon to elect class
officers. Our choices again turned out to
be excellent, as We elected Robert Ablondi
to be President of our Class, Nancy Ford,
Vice-President, Martha Boyle, Secretaryg
and David Edwards, Treasurer.
Our years progressed peacefully until
the time arrived for the arrangement of
affairs for our junior Prom. We were very
busy trying to make it the best Prom ever!
Through the utmost efforts of all those in
charge, the dance turned out to be a splen-
Once again came the time of the year
for the students to go home and sleep for
ten weeks and the teachers to go out and
work! fOr was it the other way around?!
Coming back to dear old Framingham
High School in September of 544, we were
now on the last lap of this twelve-year job.
We were seniors! Unbelievable, wasn't it?
It seemed very strange every time we
stopped to figure that in less than ten
months we would graduate 1 ?b from
F. H. S.!
Getting right down to business we gave

VVhile sitting in front of my wood fire
beside the railroad tracks owned by Stuart
Hoppin, and built by Richard Hare, eating
the last of my de luxe dinner, which con-
sisted of beans, beans, beans, and one
meatball, I heard a rustle in the bushes be-
hind me. Thinking some railroad "Dick"
Cpolicemanj was on my trail, I leaped to
my feet and was prepared for the worst.
Suddenly a hideous shriek rent the air,
"Killer"! There stood Bob Ablondi, look-
ing hungrily at the remaining half of my
meatball. We were overjoyed at seeing one
another after twenty years of separation
since our high school days. After exchang-
ing a few censored remarks, we started
comparing notes on the adventurous nature
of our journeys. Bob having a yen for
corn, I began telling him my tale of woe.
My hobo career started after a long ab-
sence from Framingham when I em-
barked on my comfortable lounging place
on the rails under the caboose of the fast
moving Sunshine Dairy milk train, engi-
neered by Mary Geoghegan. Later, when
the train stopped, a strange vision greet-
ing my eyes turned out to be police cap-
tain Kenneth Batty, giving orders to offi-
cer Frank Donnelly to tag Paul Flaherty,
who is still speeding on the road to
North Natick. CKeep trying, f'Antam-
bol."j Watching the proceedings was
Franeis Grady, newly appointed manager
of the St. George Theatre, now the Old-
St. George Theatre. XVith him were his
ushers Herrnie Allyn, John Benejito, and
head usher Peter Bent. The picture now
playing at the Old St. George was entitled
'fTry and Ditch Me," starring Ernest
Chiappini, Thomas "Burk" Connolly, and
guess who-that's right, Thomas Major.
Wanting to see my old classmates per-
form, I reached into my pocket. Only

forty-nine cents there! I 'fborrowed,"
loosely speaking, a penny from Bruce
Magoon, who, at the theatre entrance, was
selling apples which he had purloined from
Louie Verdy's market. He informed me
that David "Diz" Edwards was now coach
of the f'Toronto Tootsy" hockey team
After enjoying the movies, I dined in
"Blackie's Restaurant," owned, operated,
and managed by William Quinn. In his em-
ploy as waitresses were Mary Gormley,
Ruthe Powers, and Irene Speigel. The en-
tertainment featured a dance number by
Roscoe HCharley" Chaplin, and Franees
Conza. The bar was being tended by An-
thony, I drink more than I serve, Repucri,
and Edward, I'll drink any man sober,
Stucehi. . just then the swinging doors
swung open and Ernest Finkelstein and
Kenneth Speigel, Quinn's trigger men,
walked in. I topped off my meal with a
pineapple sundae, made of coffee ice
cream, marshmallow, and nuts, whipped
up by Donald MacEachern, in the drug
store of the same name.
At the break of day the next morning
I sneaked aboard the China Clipper,
which was warming its engines on Beaver
Brook. When we took off, I was surprised
to see, from my hideout, the plane being
piloted by Ira Ward, with R iehard Strurn-
sky his co-pilot. This was my first trip by
airplane and I became exasperated Cen-
raged, irritated, embittered-for those
who don't know how to use a dictionaryl
when I saw air-stewardesses, Betty Ann
Haughey and Lillian Moran, serving coffee
to the passengers, with none for me. How-
ever, they soon slipped me a cup and dur-
ing a short chat with them I learned that
Madeline Ross and Richard Pinna had
been maid of honor and best man, respec-
tively, at the wedding of John Del Prete
and Vera Buchner. Del and wife now live
in Saxonville in a log cabin built by Nello
Conti, out of the logs left by the Indians.
ljoke, jokelj The stork had visited them
not once, not twice, not three times, but
"BINGO"! four times. Del always did
believe in mass production.
Five hours later we landed in San Fran-
cisco Bay, where I saw Roger Mullen,
Thomas Murphy, Gene Oliva, Ray Le-
veille, and Richard, "Look at My Mus-
cles" Cassidy, trying to lift a gas hose to
refuel the plane. Upon inquiry I learned
that the motors to the plane were designed,
manufactured, and assembled by James J.
Ducey, Jr., and Company.
Walking through 'fPiccadilly Parkl' I
sighted a familiar stride coming toward
me. Sure enough, it was Herb West, who is
making the Navy his lifelong profession.
I gathered from the apprentice seaman,
junior grade stripes on his sleeve that ad-
vancements are slow. He explained that
he was married to Janey Waters, but un-
like the Del Pretes, there were no little
Wests. I spent the rest of the day and that
night at his home, where I found Lucille
Tuttle, his maid, working very hard. From
them I learned that Vivian Zeller was now
a model for Bob Walton, who owns the
largest ladies' undies company in the
world. QNice going, Boblj
The next day in San Francisco I visited,
through a knothole, a baseball game, in
which I saw "Big Ed" Higgins, bat boy
for the San Diego Sadies, fighting with
Tony Bianchino, bat bo-y for the Detroit
Daisies, over who could hit the farthest
ball. "Big Ed" won with an infield fiy over
the backstop. just then I felt a firm hand
on my shoulder and as I turned around, I
saw a figure in a blue uniform. There stood
Richard Anderson, now a policeman of the
San Francisco police force. The beds in
the prison cells in California are really
comfortable. Occupying the next cell were
Cliff Whitehouse and John "Houdinil'
True, whose motto is UA hairpin will open
anything." So he found out when he
'fpicked" the safe of Jacques Fauteaux,
only to find jacques inside with his cool
559999. Therefore, he gave him a penny
that had just been manufactured in Tony
Cardi's wine cellar. Before too long I was
Passing through Nebraska on my way
East, I saw George Grijjith, now a plumb-
er, repairing a water main on Leaky Lane.
He informed me that Charles Bryant
owned a haberdashery store and that his
secretary was Rachael Labazio.
The last thing I saw on my journey was
Dot, Watch Your Whistle or I Wonlt Wig-
gle, Cantall, dancing to the Hindu music
of Richard Scanlon, which was being
played on a flute made by Mario DiCieco.
What did you see of interest on your
Yes, "Killer," I also have seen many of
our classmates of '45, just a month ago I
was traveling on a fast-moving, fifty-car
freight train when we suddenly came to a
stop. Looking up from my lower, I found
myself at the Framingham crossing. There
was Fire Chief Steve Durkee arguing with
engineer Perry Cacriola about which
would move first, the fire engine or the
freight train. While this was going on. I
noticed that the cause of it all was Amelia
Falconi's five and dime store, which was on
fire. The matter was settled when Police
Chief Malcolm Flood decided to split the
train in half.
Since my train was to be delayed a few
hours, I decided to give the old home town
the once over. The first news that came
to my attention was that James Burke had
just been elected Mayor of Saxonville for
the fourth term. He had defeated Louis
Axtman by five votes. His hrst act as
mayor was to move the High School to Sax
or else to move Sax to the High School.
Down the road a way there seemed to be
another fire, but as I came closer I saw
Raymond Bratica trying in vain to get his
old Ford going. It seems that Donald
Beaton and John Banda had made a sub-
stitute for gasoline out of Evening in Paris
perfume and some home-made wine from
Albert Sirnonetta's wine cellar. I also
learned that the password into this sanc-
tuary is three knocks and the chorus of
"Show Me the Way to Go Homef' I soon
left this crowd, for my yearning to wander
kept me in no one place too long.
As I walked back to my train, I heard
the clang-clang of the trolley. I glanced
up and there were driver Barbara Mtc-
Grath and conductor Therese Healy, look-
ing on while Muriel Norton sang the
f'Trolley Song." Shirley McKenzie was
selling cotton to Eleanor MacDonald and
Dora Moeeia, two unfortunates who hadn't
ear muffs. I decided it would be safer to
I kept on with my travels until I heard
a hoarse cry, 'fDraw two." It was James
Murphy, owner of the 'fYou've Gotta
Have Two Bits to Enter Cafe," drinking
his profits for the day. Since you had to be
rolling in money to enter this tavern, I
decided I wasn't very thirsty. Coming
into the center of this flourishing city, I
dropped into the park to rest my "aching
backw and read the Daily Blow, edited by
Alden Seltzer and Herbert Raphael, but
the park bench was occupied by Walter
Haynes and Phyllis Jost, who didn't even
see me. Consequently, I hastened back to
the crossing and to my open air compart-
ment at the bottom of the hog car. I
noticed that the railroad crew was busy
righting a freight car that had been de-
railed. It seems that Torn Donnelly, crew
boss, had just finished laying some new
track after having read a book called f'The
Air Trains of the Futurefl Tom was try-
ing to bring the future here by running the
track up a banking. There was no harm
done, for Tom's crew, which consisted of
Jllaleolm Feldman, Robert Flayderrnan,
Joseph Palladino and Lorraine Zeller, soon
cleared the wreck. I heard later that Lor-
raine did most of the work. Along the
Framingham-Ashland track was a bill-
board which advertised the Patsy Diana
racetrack, featuring Pat's world-famous
horses. The billboard was one of Ralph
Wardropt's, who is the famous artist, with
billboards scattered all over the country.
From my coach I could also se-e the road
leading to Ashland. There was Marjorie
Parker, bumming her way to the big city.
Up on the hill on my left was a large sign.
I quote, 'C 'You are now leaving the United
States and entering Tripoli,' Silvio Mer-
corelli, Puppet Governor. Passports must
be shown to the General of the Province,
Sergi Grandonif' I learned later the rea-
son it was so hard to gain entrance. Yep,
Irene Vitali and Eleanor Nei were the
Royal Treasure. Looking to the right, I
saw a large gunboat of the Tripoli navy
manned by Arthur W alker, who had re-
cently been discharged from the service
with a rating of seaman second class. He
had reached the pension age after twenty
years of faithful service. Bud holds the
order of the Purple Heart for wounds re-
ceived while shaving in action and the
Bronze Medal for being able to polish the
whole starboard side of the destroyer be-
fore lunch. The boat was shelling a canoe
filled with Camp Fire Girls. I noticed
Clara Woodin, Beverly Stowell and Bar-
bara Long among the girls taking an unex-
Continuing on my way, I reached the
city of Holliston. There I left my better
half fthe boysl in rather a hurry when
railroad dicks Beverly Granville and
Arlene Pollard came along with their large
billy sticks. The whole town had gone
haywire after the World War and had
elected all women officials. Albina Pane-
rella and Dorothy Pestana were the local
dog-catchers, chasing after Beatriee
O'Leary's pet wolfdog that had been
frightening all the Holliston men. Most
of the men had left the town, anyway,
after the ladies moved into office. William
Pinchook and Ernest Tullio, a couple of
traveling salesmen passing through, were
practically mobbed when Jenny La Penta,
Luanne King and Julia Martin spied them.
The O.P.A. chairman, Elsie Bianchetti,
has put a limit on all available men. Each
single girl is given two "meat points" a
week. But Mujey Guerra and Eleanor
Fantoni seem to have found a black mar-
ket, controlled by Richard Giaccomuzzi
and Robert Carlson. What a business! Of
course, there were many girls, like Anna
Abelli and Carmen Chao, who roped off
their men before the rationing had taken
place. They are considered hoarders by
all the other girls.
I decided I musn't stay any longer and
Ann Stajield and Florence Woodman, two
S.S. women, helped me make my decision.
I bummed a ride in an old 1945 Cadillac,
driven by William H obin, a factory owner
who specialized in using lima beans com-
mercially. He first started to make rubber
out of them, but his scientists, Wanda
Tredi-cucci and Nancy Tomasi, had found
He offered me a few and dropped me off.
I threw them away and broke Irene War-
ren's CPlease No Squeeza Da Bananaj
fruit store window. I was given ten days
by judge Alice Machado. I was thrown
into a cell with two lady hoboes, Jean Clin-
ton and Ellen Walsh, who had landed in
jail when they chased a cop and found
later he was a she.
Why look, t'Killer," speaking of the
'iBums,,' isn't that they jumping off that
Well, my travels took me all over Amer-
ica. Here's the tale of my wanderings.
After graduating from dear old F. H. S.,
I enlisted in the Marines, received my
training at the University of N. U. T.
tNumerous Useful Techniquesj, was sta-
tioned at Leatherneck as secretary to Col.
Quentin Sewell and was courtmartialed
for being A.W.O.L. As a result I was
placed in,f'Running Water," a prison for
erring Marines. Here I met Helen 'Slug-
ger," Devine, and Barbara, HI Love My Al,
but, oh, You Kid," Luby. They told me
that they had heard Betty Mahoney speak
on f'How to Acquire a Slim Figuref' Her
principal exercise for losing weight was
turning the head from left to right slowly
when a second helping was offered. Joyce
Campion was walking back and forth on
the stage, demonstrating the result of this
process. Dr. John, f'Arf", Henderson told
Nancy Clements she had acute pleurisy-
she gave him a disgusted look and told him
flattery would get him nowhere. They also
told me that Priscilla Turner was Presi-
dent at UU Demon UQ, where Mary Mc-
Grath taught typing and shorthandg Rus-
sell Cort was gas man in Utopia. He went
to Greeley's home, and when Terry Cowles
Greeley came to the door he said he under-
stood there was something in her house
that wouldn't work. Terry said, "Yes,
Dick is upstairs." It seems that Dick left
the Navy because he was subject to le mal
de mer tseasickness J.
When my sentence at the Marine prison
was finished, I hopped a freight to New
York, resolving never more to work. To
my surprise I saw Virginia Lowe and
Barbara Leslie farther back in the same
freight I had chosen. They were on their
way to star in John DeGregory's and Sij,
"Gee, the Third one in on the Left Is Aw-
ful Cute," Lebewohl's show, "Bloomer
Girlsfl Billy Feehely and Jeanne Cross
were being widely publicized for their very
odd duetg Billy is to play the banjo, while
Jeanne executes an unusual ballet step.
They said that John "My Ideal Is Bennyw
Brita was to play "Love in Bloom" exactly
as did his idol.
Having reached New York. we disem-
barked from our luxurious freight car
compartments, bade each other a fond
adieu and went our separate ways. As I
meandered down Fifth Avenue, I saw a
huge red and green sign bearing the words,

prietor George Hopkins. Near the end of
the next block I came to Dorothy Saul-
nier's book shop. Upon entering, I found
myself gazing at a huge volume about five
inches thick. Blazoned on the Moroccan
leather binding in gold letters-The Auto-
biography of John Garvey, 'fThe Master

Was coming toward me in a very cute Jane
Colman frock, designed by none other
than jane herself. She asked me to tea,
and having nothing but a hole in my
pocket, I accepted willingly. She men-
tioned that she had recently received a let-
ter from Naney Ford, who was a. teacher
at our good old Alma Mater. However, she
seemed to be trying very hard to outdo
Einsteing she was slaving on a process of
making six and six equal sixty-six. In her
letter Nancy mentioned that Warren Buz-
zell and Jean Hargraves, happily married,
were now working at school as custodians.
Mary Bertuzzi and Buddy married and
were very delighted with Buddy, jr. Irene
Pignoni was playing shortstop for the
'fGargoyles," who had won every game
that season. Nancy had overheard Gilda

who was starting out on her first date, to
be a good girl and have a good time. The
daughter quickly replied-l'Make up your
mind, Mother." Tea was now over. I
thanked Dorothy and was again on my
way. Yes, on my way to Chicago and all
The first object to catch my eye as I
sauntered along thoughtlessly, was a huge
saxophone, dangling in a doorway. On the
sign beside it was i'Sax Appeal Taught
Here. Co-Owners, Patsy Paradis and
Phyllis Kadraf' just then I heard two
familiar voices, one explaining to the other
the difference between a sewing machine
and a kiss. One sews seams nice. and the
other seems so nice. I looked over my
shoulder to discover George DiCristoforo
and Arthur Needham, apparently only re-
cently interested in things domestic. One
wore a sign, "Eat at Falconi's Famous
Irish Fish Farm," owned and managed by
Dolly Faleoni. Chicago certainly was a
windy city-a paper. The Chronicle, edit-
ed by Jeanne Allen and Veroniea Brooks,
blew to my feet. There in great headlines
was blazoned the latest airplane calamity.
Betty Clapp, aviatrix, was giving flying
lessons to Joan Keir and C. Jones, but
Jeannette Whittemore hadn't put enough
gas in the tank, and the trio had crashed
in Irene Donnelly's cow pasture, injuring
three of her best jersey cows, and scaring
the entire herd. The girls were rushed to
Jane Cogan's hospital in Jaekie Brown's
ambulance. Listed on the last page of The
Chroniele were the names of the attending
nurses-Cilla Spaulding, Barbara Lowe,
Pauline Keefe, and Lillian Adarns. I have
heard since that several weeks later Liz
Harney delivered a note to the poor un-
fortunates from Irene Donnelly. She said
the plane crash had so affected ten of her
best cows that they had given no milk
for two weeks. Enclosed was a bill for
32500, made out by Marilyn Beers.
In another section of the paper under
i'Screen Gossipl' I saw that Larry Maroni,
great pianist, had again been called upon
to stand in for the greatest lover of all
times, Jim, 'LI Let Them Love Me and Then
I Leave Them," Lewis. It seems that every
so often jim gets a yen for basketball and
Larry is called in. Tony Basile produced
Donald Chasse's and Pat Wales' last Him,
"Yours Till an Elephant Nose," in which
joan Davis the second, otherwise known
as Joan Ryan, was a comedienne. Ginny
Egan and Mary Capstifk are the noted
writers of this gossip column.
just as I was tossing the paper into the
gutter, someone tapped me on the shoulder
and bellowed, "Lady, watch where you're
throwing that there paper -I have to
sweep it up." When I turned I saw George,
"Help Keep Our City Clean," Yeager him-
self, with a broom extending two feet over
his head-slight exaggeration. He told me
that Bob Jordan was Governor of the city
and had made him Colonel of the Street
Well, I guess that's the extent of my
travels. Ellen, whom did you see?
Okay, gang. Here's my story. I know
you all want to hear about our friends
from Framingham High School, class of
i-15, so here goes. It seems that I got the
travel bug along with the rest of you, and
during my wanderings met and talked with
a lot of our crowd.
I saw Jean Gillis in New York, holding
a job and her boss, too. Shels a private
secretary to that ball of tire, Dafoe Ahearn.
Her main job is putting on the envelopes
the stamps that Dave licks. Good salary,
though. Marian Evans is a gossip column-
ist on the New jersey Bounce, with Hazel
Goddard as assistant. The dirt that those
two can scare up! And I do mean scare.
Dorothy Barker is singing at Carnegie
Hall right now, with "Fuzz" Knight as her
manager. Nice work, boy! Martha Boyle,
happily married, is living in Ashland, Mas-
sachusetts. This was no news to most of
us. I suppose you know her new name is
Rice. Bob., jr., is cute, too.
I saw all these kids while hopping
freights up and down the New England
coast, stopping now and then for a bowl of
tomato soup. Remember "C" lunch? At
this stage of traveling I got a little sick of
terra iirma and stowed away on a banana
boat, heading for South America. I can't
look a banana in the eye since that trip.
Bananas for brea.kfast, dinner and supper,
and mostly green at that. But before the
trip was over I had to come out for air. Do
you doubt it? Of course you remember
how, after the Great War, women took
over many jobs that before had been han-
dled by men. Imagine my surprise at find-
ing Shirley Anderson as captain, with
Phyllis Bater as first mate and Gilda
Beatriee head of the 'tblack gang." And
how that gal could shovel coal! They
made me feel right at home and I really
enjoyed the rest of the trip.
We docked at Rio de Janeiro in Brazil,
and I was stopped by customs inspector
Margaret Dakai. She checked through my
pockets quite thoroughly, and after find-
ing only two safety pins, four fish hooks, a
piece of string and a banana she let me
into the country.
I found Dorothy Bourette on the court-
house steps, waiting to get the story on a
murder. A better reporter couldn't be
found, and the city editor couldnlt usually
find Dot. It seems that Helen Mains, a
coffee plantation owner, had killed a coffee
bean and was trying to put in a self-de-
fense plea. Rugged country, this Brazil!
just as I was going into the courtroom,
Olive Dyer came rushing out the door with
a camera clutched in her grimy little paw,
screaming, "She'll get it! Shelll get it!"
"Get what?'l I shouted.
"The chair, of course. The poor bean
didn't have a chance! " With this answer,
Olly and camera dashed on.
Upon entering the courtroom I found
Marjorie Bennett fighting valiantly to save
her client from the extra warm seat behind
that little green door. Eunice Capen was
leering at Helen like a cat that's about to
have a nice mouse for lunch. Angela Colon-
tonio was sitting with Jennie Dallamora on
the bench reserved for the 'fsob sistersf'
and both were crying into their inkwells.
Not wanting to watch judge Peter Ferro
pronounce sentence on the defendant, and
not wanting to see the self-satisfied smirks
on prosecuting attorney Capen's face, I
left the courthouse.
I hailed a taxi-copter-remember when
they were on the ground and called taxi-
cabs? Clambering in, I found Mary
Christo driving it and trying to figure out
how to let the flaps down. She set me down
near the docks and told me that the trip
was on her. Of course, I had no money
anyway, but I was relying on my marvel-
ous brain and good looks fahem! l. I
hopped aboard another boat, making sure
that it wasn't carrying bananas. I would
have starved if mess girl Phyllis Huntoon
hadn't sneaked me jelly sandwiches. We
docked in San Francisco, going through
the Panama Canal, of course.
I jumped overboard so the captain
wouldn't see me, and bumped into
Dorothy Monahon, who was diving for hot
pennies that the passengers of the boats
were throwing to her. When I reached the
shore, I found Ralph Sawyer and Jane
Sanford running a cold drink stand. They
had been partners about six years, and still
jane made the dough and Ralph drank it
up. Good coke, you bet'cha! They in-
formed me that Marjorie Quinn was sing-
ing at the 'WVatch Your Coat, While We
Take Your Girl" Club. She was known all
over Frisco as "Muddy Margie" because
of her deep, beautiful voice. Her specialty
was "I Left My Brains in F.H.S."' Veronica
Olszewski was a cigarette girl. Gee, you
can get the things now! Every so often
Lorraine Putnam, one of the chorus girls,
decides to marry again, and ftRonnie" has
to fill in. June Shepard, Adele Misalsley,
Lola Tinney, lllarguerite Bengiooanni and
Joan Costa are all in the chorus. With
what they have, they can be.
I left San Francisco and headed East. I
met Katherine de Foleo in Kansas. She
owns a 20,000-acre wheat field and is
really taking it easy now. I saw Mary
Burbank in Chicago, running a television
machine and holding it on tall, dark and
good-looking Andrew Errieo. All he does
is smile all day at Mary. They told me
that Norma Benjamin was down the street
in the Rialto Theatre, starring in the play.
i'Arsenic and Uh, That Face? Leave it to
I left Chicago with everybody's bless-
ings ringing in my ears and two quarters
ringing in my pockets. Friends are swell.
aren't they? My destination was Wash-
ington, D. C., where I hoped to see Presi-
dent Boyle. Yes, Eddie did it, as you all
know. Why, I had even stayed in Cactus-
needle, Texas, long enough to cast my vote
for him. He carried practically every
state, he always was strong tl cough.
cough! 5. His secretary is Jeanne Casey.
Private, of course. The First Lady saw
Jeanne the other day, and I don't think she
likes this 'fprivate' business. I really don't
blame her. Cute kid, our Casey. I saw
Lillian Farren at the Earl Theatre there.
Lil always was a good dancer. With
Oswald Iarussi as her dancing partner she
was climbing to the top fast. Ozzie held
out on us back in F.H.S. about how he
could dance. But Lil brought it out okay.
Later, for dinner, they took me to a restau-
rant, one of many that were owned by
Edward Lewis. I always knew Eddie liked
to eat, but I thought that was going too far.
After all, restaurants cost money. Ed sat
down and ate with us. I had forgotten how
he could park that food away, but grad-
ually memories came back when I saw him
ripping his fourth chicken apart. He al-
ways did like white meat. Barbara Leach,
our waitress, was chased out of the kitch-
en by chef John Liberatore, waving a
hatchet. Johnny still gets excited easily.
He stopped long enough to tell me that
Irene Tupper was now married. Admiral
Cunningham is very happy with his com-
mission, too. After johnny had gone, Paul
Ford, a singing waiter in Edls restaurant,
passed our table.
I left Washington and headed for Bos-
ton, where I intended to see singer Ger-
trude Clements, who had taken time off
from her Hollywood contract to fill in for
Anna DeFilippo, who ran ffThe Old Hub-
bard" Theatre. Angie Gentili reigned
supreme at the ticket window and Claire
Kelly grabbed them at the door. Usher
Edna Gerard showed me to my seat just
as the curtain went up. Gordon Croft
and Jean Langley were the main charac-
ters in the musicals written by successful
playwright Madeline Hill. After the show,
which I enjoyed immensely, I was joined
by Anna Joyee and Mary Mr'Carron.
They insisted upon bidding me farewell,
and asked the number of my drawing
room on the train. I told them rail four,
third from left, and they snickered right
back at me with, f'Well, well. Coming up
in the world. hey, Ellen?'l Nice kids. We
met subpoena server Dorothy Mahoney,
who said that she was looking for Rose
Salti. I didn't inquire why. You can
draw your own conclusion. Dot offered
me a job, as a result I had a bad cough-
ing spell and muttered something about
an incurable disease, so she went on about
her serving. Anna and Mary left me in
the South Station, where I proceeded to
read the headlines of the papers until
C arinela M angini whispered huskily in my
ear, 'fWant to buy a pair of thot' nylons?"
After much discussion, she realized I
didn't want them. When I left her she was
whispering in someone else's ear. Good
luck, 'fMillie." I saw Irene Verrill and
hailed her. She was just boarding a west-
bound train and she finally "convinced"
me that I should ride in her compartment
with her. When we were settled and speed-
ing on our way, Irene informed me that
she was president of a ladies' lingerie fac-
tory and doing quite well. Trying to hide
a hole in my stocking, I said, f'Thatls
nice," and smiled weakly. Mary M cGrail
and Mary Missaggia were junior partners
in this firm, and Barbara Pew was over in
France at the moment, trying to buy some
lace. For trimmings, I believe. Irene told
me that they needed another buyer and
said she thought Ild fill the bill. The train
started to slow down at this crucial mo-
ment. After explaining to Irene that I
wanted a glass of water, I dashed out.
So here I am, kids. Of course I saw all
these people recently, but I believe they've
gone still higher in their chosen profes-
sions. They're all a swell bunch and I'm
proud to have known them. I think even
the teachers back in Framingham High
School are, too. And you know? I think
I will look up Irene when I go IVest again.
I might even like having a job.

We, the class of 1945, being sound in
both mind and body, attest to the fact that
this document is our official last Will and
Testament, and it is with complete realiza-
tion and comprehension of the acts com-
mitted that we bequeath our bountiful pos-
sessions in the following manner. Or, in
other words, "This is where we pay back
the F. H. S. faculty for three years of
sweetness and light." To wit:
1. To our dear friend, Miss Williams,
we leave, besides our love, a f'Handy-Andy
Red Cross Kit," so that she may further
investigate the claims of HI'm sick as a dog
--I want to go home."
2. We give, devise and bequeath to the
capable lunch room staff two things, name-
ly: 1. A book, 'CHOW to Butter Bread in
Six Easy Lessons," and if this fails-2. A
3. To the eminent raconteur, Mr. Cur-
tis fcrossing the barb Dooling, we leave a
bigger shovel, for it is noticed that his
stories and jokes "ripen with age."
4. To Mr. Alton fif you passed my
course you can call me joej Bush, we leave
two phonograph records. The names of
said records are "Give Me Stout Hearted
Men" and "I'll Never Smile Again."
5. To our jovial friend and principal,
Mr. Mayo fMy Hair Is Growing Thinner
All the Timej Magoon, we leave a bottle of
cue ball polish, a towel and the gentle re-
minder, "It won't be long now, Mayo?
6. A little red scooter is to become the
possession of Miss Mary Hobbs. This
should, in other words, enable her to get
around faster and accomplish much more.
7. To help combat the food shortage,
the members of the Senior Play Cast leave
behind all the eggs and corn which were so
abundant on opening night.

8. This year's football team leaves be-
hind its victory over Milford to help prove
the theory that nothing is impossible.
9. We, the baseball squad, leave to our
coach, Mr. Daniels, a message. It goes:
f'Cheer up, jack. Next year's bunch can't
be any worse." Unquote.
The following bequests are of an entire-
ly personal nature:

sunburn lotion to next year's goalie, with
a fervent prayer that he will not be ex-

more familiarly called 'fThe Holef'

Next on the bill came our election of
senior class officers. We re-elected Robert
Ablondi and Martha Boyle as President
and Secretaryg and chose Jean Clinton,
Vice-President, and Thomas Donnelly,
just to show that our class had initiative,
we went ahead and produced a Senior Play
that really became a success. In i'Growing
Painsi' the leading roles were taken by
Luanne King and Bruce Magoon.
Yes, all these events and those con-
nected with graduation-the taking of the
class picture, the Senior Prom, Class
Night, the Music Festival, and Gradua-
tion itself-will always be remembered in
the hearts of the Class of 1945.
As We leave Framingham High School
with our diplomas, then and only then.
shall we realize what it means-the true
loss of our social gatherings, of our teach-
ers, of all the good times that our class has
had. Then, and only then, shall we see the
signiiicance of going out and fighting in
this war-torn world of bloodshed and de-
struction, so that more people and more
classes will be able to have and enjoy such
splendid high school careers as our class.
