Words cannot express our gratitude to him for his expert guidance. With an inexhaustible supply of wit and good humor, he carried us through many difficult situations. His un¬ tiring efforts on our behalf will long be re¬ membered by each and every one of us. Arthur C W. dKale AMHERST A.B. HARVARD ED.M. Superintendent of Schools (James J. Doherty HARVARD A.B. Principal of High School OSKEY STAFF Editor-in-Chief Frances Donahue Business Manager Betty Anderson Literary Editor John Cohoon Marilyn Keefe Helen Maringas Assistant Literary Editors Claudia DiMarchi Mary McDonald Art Editor Lois Swanbeck Florence Mahoney Eunice Belleville Business Staff Nick DiPardo Bernard Valente Social Chairman William DeBaggis Girls ' Sports Dorothy Potenza Literary Advisers Miss Wiggin and Miss Holmes Mike D’Angelo Lester Talamini Boys’ Sports Nick Mucciarone Faculty Adviser Mr. Beane Page Eight Nineteen Hundred Forty-One § MR. DOHERTY Principal Trigonometry We of the class of 1941 have the honor of being the first graduating class to have had Mr. Doherty all during its high school life and we wish to express 1 here our appreciation for the help and guidance which he has extended to us in the last four years. We feel that without this aid our high school career would have been much less successful and that our prospects for the future would be much less bright. MR. FRAZER Submaster Chemistry, Physics Franklin High is indeed fortunate in possessing a teacher who has done a great deal to help us, both in and out of school. Everyone enjoys and learns a great deal in his chemistry and physics classes. All of “Doc’s " plays are great successes and his great help in these and other social events has always been greatly appreciated by all. MISS WIGGIN English Without Miss Wiggin the F. H. S. would have a hard time, for her profound understanding and infinite knowledge does a great deal to help us, both in and out of school. Her sound advice, which she is always willing to give, is greatly appreciated by all. She is admired for her thorough understanding of English. MISS BULLUKIAN Shorthand, Typing, Office Practice Miss Bullukian ' s patience and good nature has been the reason for the fact that so many good secretaries have come out of F. H. S. We will certainly missj Miss Bullukian after we leave school and know that the pupils coming in will certainly relish being in her classes. Page Ten Nineteen Hundred Forty-One MR. RODGERS Manual Training, Mechanical Drawing Although Mr. Rodgers’ classes are limited to boys, he has proved unusually popular with all students. In his quiet, unassuming manner he has won the respect and admiration of all. Whenever there is any work to be done, he is always ready to lend a helping hand and anything which he does is always done well. MR. COLBERT History, Civics, Athletics " Where ' s Mr. Colbert?” “Have you seen ' Coach ' ?” At one time or another each one of us has asked one of those questions. Mr. Colbert is one of the most popular members of the faculty, especially among the Seniors who take U. S. History. His popu¬ larity can be attributed to his wonderful personality, his methods of teaching, and his keen sense of humor. Under Mr. Colbert’s able coaching, the athletic teams have fought on to many victories. As a result, athletics have been popular among the students. MR. DePASQUA Italian, English, Law Mr. DePasqua is a great favorite with all high school boys and girls, both for his ability and cooperative spirit. We can all say without exaggeration that the more classes we had with Mr. DePasqua, the more we wanted. May he always keep his wonderful humor. MISS HOLMES English Red-headed people are said to be u nusually quick-tempered, but there is an exception in this case. Because of Miss Holmes’ calmness and good nature, she was the best-liked teacher of us all. May you always keep your sweet disposition. Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Page Eleven a C MR. HANCOCK Civics, Mathematics, History Many of the students who have had Mr. Hancock as their subject teacher will attest to the fact that his classes are enjoyable as well as educational — due to his sense of humor and ability to teach. His understanding nature and willingness to help have made him one of the more popular teachers of F. H. S. We hear that Mr. Hancock is a rabid “Red Sox” fan, even though they aren’t in the lead! MISS KEEFE Mrs. Edward Powers Business Practice, Bookkeeping, Typing Much to our sorrow, Miss Keefe left us in the middle of the year to become Mrs. Powers. To her we wish all the luck in the world. Mrs. Powers has always been one of our most helpful and cheerful teachers. The future pupils of F. H. S. will certainly miss something by not having her for a teacher. MR. BEANE English, Economics, Problems of Democracy Mr. Beane, our class advisor, has labored with us for three years in making the sociaKevents and activities of our class suc¬ cessful ones. His English classes are never dull, but they say his economics classes are no cinch. His basketball teams for the last few years have not been as fortunate as they might have been, but we leave him, hoping that in the future years he will have patience enough to continue with them. MR. FITZPATRICK Algebra I, II, Geometry Through all his years of teaching, Mr. Fitzpatrick has always lent a helping hand to whoever finds himself in need of one. His quiet manner has made all students who have had him, like and respect him. If you are ever in school between the hours of four and five, you will probably find Mr. Fitzpatrick ' s room filled with pupils whom he is trying to help along. Page Twelve Nineteen Hundred Forty-One MR. STEVENS Biology, Science, and Economics Mr. Stevens’ wide knowledge of science, biology, and eco¬ nomics made him an indispensable teacher. The fact that he was one of the best-liked members of the faculty can be attested to by the many students who were seen up in his home room after school. Fortunately, many assemblies have been made enjoyable, both by the F. H. S. Orchestra and Band. Undoubtedly Mr. Stevens’ untiring efforts in his splendid conditioning of the Orchestra and Band will always linger in our memories. MISS LINDBLAD Home Economics Miss Lindblad ' s new ideas and her pleasant manner of pre¬ senting them have been a joy to all her students. It was with pleasure that we greeted her arrival here in our Sophomore year. Her pleasant manner and smile have won many a student over to her point of view in the making of a dress. MR. ABBOTT French, Latin One of the finest and most popular friends we have among the members of the faculty is Mr. Abbott, who joined us in our Sophomore year. We were indeed fortunate at this turn of events, for he proved to be a F. H. S. “rooter” — being present at many social and athletic activities. Besides being present at games, he coached the second team in basketball on to victories against fast company. The mysteries of Latin no longer are so. “Why?” Because Mr. Abbott teaches it in an interesting and understanding way. As for French, ask any member of his 1941 French III class!! MISS BEANE Business Arithmetic, Ancient History, Girls’ Physical Director “Beanie,” our teacher and pal, is always welcomed everywhere with enthusiasm. Her presence adds fun and interest to any gathering. She is well-liked and respected by all her classes. When called upon to do something, she is always ready with a helping hand and smile. Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Page Thirteen i MISS DeBAGGIS Latin and English Miss DeBaggis is our popular and efficient teacher of Latin. The subject is often looked upon as a dead or dull language, but under her inspiring hand it has become an interesting and popular subject. She is always ready and willing at any time to lend her valu¬ able assistance to any school work and this cooperative spirit has made her popular with all. MR. LAUNDRY Boys’ Physical Mr. Laundry, or " Coach, " as he is affectionately called by the boys who take physical, has always been willing to lend a helping hand. His renown as an athlete has spread far and wide in F. H. S. He excels in gymnastics and has put on a number of breath¬ taking physical exhibitions for the benefit of the townspeople. We hope " Coach " will have a long career at F. H. S. MRS. RILEY Supervisor of Music The Glee Club is the department of music that is in the com¬ petent hands of Mrs. Riley. Because of an unfortunate accident, she was absent for a while this year, but is now back again. We wish her luck on the road to full recovery. MISS ROSE Bookkeeping, Typing, Business Practice Miss Rose joined us in the middle of our Senior year. Re¬ gardless of the fact that she has been teaching at F. H. S. a short time, she has endeared herself to all her pupils by her charming personality. She has won the respect of both the faculty and the students. Miss Rose is taking Mrs. Powers ' place, teaching Book¬ keeping. Typing, and Business Practice. Page Fourteen Nineteen Hundred Forty-One i MRS. WIGHT Art Mrs. Wight, unfortunately, has fewer pupils coming out for art every year. We, who know her good work and know her willingness to help with such events as the Junior Prom, cannot understand it. Talent, under Mrs. Wight ' s expert and enthusi¬ astic instruction, is sure to blossom into beauty. MR. MARTELLO M usic We had a new teache r this year, for a few months, in the music department, — Mr. Martello. Mr. Martello used his musi¬ cal talent in directing the Glee Club, which put on some fine performances under his direction. He is no longer with us, but we all wish him luck for the future. MRS. MARY DIORIO Office Secretary Whenever there is work to be done of a Secretarial nature, Mary is immediately sought by both teachers and students. She is our office secretary extraordinary. During our Senior year Mary set forth on the matrimonial seas. We are sure that she will be as great a success there as she has been in her office work and to her and her husband we extend best wishes for health, wealth, and happiness.

David is certainly one of the quietest and one of the best-behaved boys in our class. The teachers must have wished there were more like him. David has come through Franklin High with flying colors and we are all certain he will keep on in the same manner in the future. Junior Prom 3. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4.

MICHAEL JOSEPH D’ANGELO Vice-President Howard Street Franklin “ GIKE ” “ MIKE ” " Live while you live And die and be done with it. " " Mike,” one of the best-natured boys in our class, is always " ready, willing, and able " to give a hand wherever needed. His cheery grin and happy manner make everyone nearby smile and begin to feel " Mike ' s " influence. On the football field " Mike” did a great deal to bolster the team, both in spirit and brawn. To be an expert machinist is " Mike’s” ambition, for which he has already shown ability. We feel sure " Mike” will do well in this field and we extend to him all-out wishes for success. Marshal 1, 2.

She is surrounded with friends, no matter where she is going. Active in all school activities, Eunice, with her gay smile and carefree manner, makes any occasion more enjoyable. A member of the Commercial department, Eunice mixed freely with all the pupils in the High School, making herself popular among all. We aren’t sure about Eunice ' s ambitions but we wish her all the luck possible in whatever she chooses to do. Ring Committee 3, 4. Junior Prom Committee 3. Blue and White 4. Basket¬ ball 4.

MARILYN LOUISE KEEFE Treasurer Dean Avenue Franklin “KEEFEY” “A smile full of sunshine.” A cheerful “hi” is Marilyn’s constant companion. She is the most popular girl of our class, not only in the classroom but on the dance floor as well. Even though she was in great demand socially (ask “Jim”), “Keefey” kept her grades up to par. As our Class Treasurer for the entire years. Marilyn proved worthy of the position and proved dependable in keeping our financial status in good condition. At F. H. S., “Keefey " has taken a college course during these four years, but she intends to study secretarial work at Katherine Gibb ' s. She certainly will be an asset to any office! Here’s to your success for the coming years, Marilyn. Junior Prom Committee—Partner Committee. Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4. Hallow¬ e’en Party 4. Dramatics 1, 3, 4. Etiquette Club 3.

It cannot be denied that she was also a real good sport in more ways than one. A dance floor proved to be Betty’s joy and many ' s the night she has spent in happiness and bliss on the F. H. S. dance floor. As we all know, Betty is one of the prettiest girls in school. We certainly know that by the number of boys that are always about her. Betty is liked by all because she is so friendly with everyone. Anyone who knows her will agree that Betty is a grand girl and deserves all the success in the world. Junior Prom 3.

MARTIN ANDERSON 23 Dale Street Franklin “ANDY” ‘‘Art for art’s sake.” Meet the artist extraordinary of our class. Martin ' s books and note¬ books were always covered with his own clever pencil sketches of im¬ portant men and events of the day. Besides this talent, Martin also proved to be a good student. We cannot truthfully say he was always as serious as he should have been, but his air of contentment was a help to many of us who were inclined to worry too much. Martin will probably follow art, and with him go our best wishes for success. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Hallowe’en Party Committee 3, 4. Oskey (Production) 2, 3. Military Training 4. ROBERT LEWIS APPLEBY 353 West Central Street Franklin “ BOB ” " Too much study weakens the brain.” " Bob’’ Appleby seems to be one of the more ambitious boys of our class, as he went to work even before graduation. He is a quiet lad whose favorite sport seems to be roller skating at one of the nearby rinks. We are sure ’ Bob’’ will be successful in whatever work he chooses. Band 4, Military Training 4. THEODORE ARNOLD 206 Maple Street Franklin ' Shy at first, but a good sport when known.” Whenever something, needed doing quietly but efficiently, Theodore was the man contacted. We seldom knew whether he was around, so quiet were the actions of Theodore, but, in the end. what was expected of him was done and competently. Theodore was the object of many a young lady’s attention in his four years, but not once did he succumb to their attentions. To the very end he remained a man’s man but still maintained the admiration and respect of all his associates. Military Training 4. Page Twenty Nineteen Hundred Forty-One i FRED BASSIGNANI Alpine Place Franklin “ FREDDIE ” “Those who know — do.” “Freddie " was our great Democracy student and a fund of knowledge on current topics. Besides his intellectual ability, “Freddie,” with his happy-go-lucky nature, was popular with all students and teachers. We don’t know what “Freddie " plans to do now, but we are certain that whatever it is he will be successful. Washington Street EUNICE BELLEVILLE Franklin “And her merry smile and pleasing air Show her wise and good as she is fair.’’ With a sparkle of mirth and a glint of laughter in her eyes, Eunice brightens the classroom as well as our social gatherings. Although she is full of fun and is continually playing pranks, she still has plenty of time to study and receive good marks in all her classes. Eunice ' s fine work and cooperation as the Editor-in-Chief of the Blue and White has brought great enjoyment to us all. Eunice wishes to be an A-1 stenographer which, we all are sure, she will be without doubt (witness her present ability) . Ambitious and full of hope, Eunice will make a place for herself in the world in spite of all difficulties which may arise. Ring Committee 3. Junior Prom 3. Blue and White 2. 4.

If anyone should ask us who is the best-dressed boy in school, we wouldn ' t have to hesitate at all because we all know that there can only be one. Of course it’s “Joe.” It has, been a mystery to “Joe’s " classmates how, after having been absent (approximately three times a week) he still can keep up in his studies. Has anyone ever seen him worry? No, and it’s doubtful if anyone will. “Joe” is at peace with the world and lets nature take its course. Good luck and good hunting, “Joe. " Military Training 4. Class Officer—President 3. AGNES VICTORIA BRISSON 45 East Street Franklin “ AGGIE ” “Graceful and useful in all she does.” Agnes is perhaps one of our most talented girls. She is very clever with a needle, and makes all her own clothes. She is not only domestic, but also has an eye for good times. We most always see Agnes at school functions, right up in front, making her own good time. We’re sure that whatever she takes up, dressmaking or not, she’ll be a huge success. Glee Club 4.

" Sally " often had the crowd roaring during one of the tense moments when he dribbled down the floor, or ran down the field, dodging every¬ one, and scored. He certainly made a name for himself at Franklin High and all who know him are certain that he will continue in the same way in future life. Football 3, 4. Basketball 2, 3, 4. Captain 4.

ANGELINA MARIA CALDARARO 49 Buggies Street Franklin “ ANGIE ” " It is the quiet worker who succeeds.” Angelina is not the type that says much, but when she does, watch out. She is perhaps shy when you first meet her but she proves to be a worth-while friend. She likes a good time as well as the rest of us but when there is work to do she buckles right down. We ' re sure that whatever Angelina sets out to do---she will be a success. Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4. Oskey (Chorus) 2. FELIX CATALDO Washington Street Franklin “ CAT ” " Hitch your wagon to a star” Felix was one of our all around boys. No matter in what field the effort was needed Felix could be depended on to turn in a good job. He was an honor student over four year period and so was rewarded with a class day part. He was good in dramatics and sports and in his Junior year repre¬ sented our class as Class Marshal. From the versatile Felix, in whatever he attempts, we shall expect success. Class Prophecy 4.

These I will be in all I do.” Mary has always been one of the quietest members of our class. She has, however, been heard to raise her voice at many of our athletic contests. Mary’s patience and good marks have been the envy of many of us all through high school. She has the honor this year of being president of the Commercial Club. Her novel ideas and steady working have been one of the reasons for the club’s success. Mary plans to be a secretary when she leaves high school. We all wish her the best of luck and know that she will succeed in whatever she does. Junior Prom 3. Blue anti White 3, 4. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Com¬ mercial Club (President) 4.

Page Twenty-Two Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Franklin 64 North Park Street JOSEPH CHELOTTI “JOE” “I scorn to change my state with kings.” We never heard very much from “Joe” in High School, but we always know that whenever we needed a friend we could look to him for help. In his last year in High School “Joe” has proved to be quite a Romeo and is frequently seen escorting a certain Junior girl around. As a clerk in one of the local chain stores, “Joe” hopes some day to be manager of this store and eventually owner. We all know “Joe,” that if you keep the spirit that you have had all through school, you will reach your goal. Marshal 2. CLAUDE CHITTICK Lincoln Street Franklin ‘‘With carefree ways and manner hearty.” Claude is- -no, not a quiet,---but a fellow-student who wasn’t seen in the limelight very much. Hunting---with a camera---is Claude’s favorite outdoor sport, but he was a regular supporter of our games, even though he took no active part in them. Since he worked after school-hours, Claude may give that as his reason for not always having his homework completed. His future plans are as yet undecided, but we wish him success in whatever he decides to do. Junior Prom Committee 3. Military Training 4. JOHN COHOON Pleasant Street Franklin “ JOHNNIE ” ' He is a good boy, but he might be a better one.” “Johnny " is a quiet but a very popular member of our class---re- spected by his fellow-students and also by his teachers. He is one of the few boys who does well in his school work, but still not neglecting his social life. His excellent vocabulary is the envy of all. If you should notice that “Johnny’s” face is SLIGHTLY red, you may be well-assured that some girl has just spoken to BASHFUL John. Marshal 1. Ring Committee 3, 4. Football 4. Basketball 3, 4.

BETTE CONWAY 61 Union Street Franklin “ BET ” ‘‘Little, but, oh my!” “Betty’s” quiet smile and congenial manner have been a comfort to us through all our school years. “Bet " is a member of the Commercial Club this year and has con¬ tributed much to its success. Wherever you find “Betty” you ' re sure to find her friend Florence. The two are really inseparable. “Betty” plans to be a secretary and we all know that her goal will be reached. Junior Prom 3.

Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Page Twenty-Three LAURICE COOK 391 East Central Street Franklin “I must have music” Laurice was the other member of the Cook family who proved a welcome addition to our class. Besides being an excellent student, Laurice was also a good mixer and soon won himself a host of friends. As a musician he proved his worth in the Orchestra, and his violin and vocal work in the Oskey Show were two outstanding features of the production. Whatever Laurice decides to do we know he will be a success for he has that " never say die " attitude which we all want but which few have. Orchestra 4. Oskey 4. WALTER COOK 391 East Central Street Franklin " I came, I saw, I conquered” If it makes music, give it to Walter and relax. Walter came to us from Keene, New Hampshire, where he had established quite a repu¬ tation as a musician. With us he took right up where he left off and was recognized as one of the most versatile musicians in the school--- Band. Orchestra, or solo, it was all the same to Walter. If he follows music we know he will be a success, but whatever he follows---the best to Walter! Orchestra 4. Band 4. Oskey 4. JOSEPHINE D’AMELIO Arlington Street Franklin “JO” “She is pretty to walk with And witty to talk with.” Josephine is one of the smallest members of our class, but also one of the most active. This year " Jo " came out for basketball and her ability to play amazed a great many of us. Josephine was always shy and quiet up until her senior year and then, well, you frequently found her in the middle of a giggling crowd and usually it was some¬ thing she had said that caused the outburst. We don’t know what " Jo " plans to do in the future, but we do know that she’ll be successful. May luck be with you. " Jo. " Basketball 4. Glee Club 2. Etiquette Club 3. JANICE DAUPHINEE East Central Street Franklin “DAFFY” ‘‘You can’t have everything.” Although Janice was not heard from much during her first years of high school, in her Senior year she has been present at many social events and has become better known to her classmates. When one hears Janice’s carefree laugh, one cannot help but to laugh with her. Janice did not go out for sports which is surprising to those in her physical class for Janice did well there. During high school, wherever Janice was seen Uliana was not far behind. We do not know for certain what Janice ' s plans are for the future, but whatever she undertakes, best wishes always. Glee Club 1. Hallowe’en Party Committee 2. Page Twenty-Four Nineteen Hundred Forty-One i MARGARET ANN DeBAGGIS 72 Alpine Place Franklin “ PEGGY ” “ MARGIE ” “Straight and tall and a smile for all.” ■‘Peggy” was known to be one of the most cheerful girls in her classes. She always had a smile on her face and was a great fun pro¬ vider. The only time she hadn’t a smile was when a certain ballplayer left for the minor leagues. " Peggy” was of great value in her sewing classes and as she leaves us we wish her the best of luck when she takes up sewing as her vocation. MARIO DeBAGGIS 39 Ruggles Street Franklin “Daunted by nothing, ever willing to try.” Consternation in Room 114 and somewhere at the bottom would be found the happy, laughing Mario. Never too loud, but still, never too soft- -that was Mario. We shall always remember Mario for his good nature, good humor, and ability to take a joke as well as give one. The best of everything to the best of good sports. Etiquette Club 3. WILLIAM DeBAGGIS North Park Street Franklin “ WILLIE ” “And to uphold and cheer the rest, I ought to do and did my best.” “Willie,” up to his Senior year, was very quiet and reserved, at least that is the way he seemed to us. T his year though, has seen " Willie” come out of his shell and turn into quite a Romeo among other things. After school closes, " Willie” plans to join the Marines. We are sure that he will be an asset to that organization. Football (2nd team Captain) 3, 4. Basketball 1. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Hallowe’en Party 3, 4. Etiquette Club 3.

EMILIO DELLORCO 8 Hillside Road Franklin “Always ready, always there.” Emilio was the rugged football player who quietly made many of the long runs of his mates possible. His ability as a blocking back was appreciated by his team and felt by the opposition, and much of the success of the 1940 football team can be attributed to his efforts. Whenever there was work to be done Emilio was ready to lend a helping hand. To a good athlete and a good worker the best wishes of the class. Football 2, 3, 4. Baseball 2. Military Training 4. Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Page Twenty-Five 58 Wachusett Street Franklin “BABE ” “Graceful and useful in all she does.’’ Claudia has been one of the bright lights of our class all through high school. As one of the cheer 1 leaders she has urged our team on to victory many times. She can be counted upon to lend a helping hand whenever needed. " Babe’s” success on the dance floor equals her ability in the classroom. She is the kind of girl that makes parting at graduation a none too happy occasion. Here ' s to your success, Claudia. May your career be as beneficial to you as your friendship has been to us in high school. Marshal 2. Freshman Acquaintance Party 4. Glee Club 2. Etiquette Club 3. Oskey Production 1, 2, 3.

JOSEPH DeNAPOLI 136 Washington Street Franklin “ JOE ” “He has won just praise that he deserved.’’ Besides taking part in many school and classroom activities, " Joe” was one of our better students. Quiet and unassuming, he won a place for himself in the hearts of students and teachers. Although " Joe” never took part in any sports, he was one of the most loyal supporters of all teams. Good luck to you, “Joe,” in anything you undertake. We know you will be successful . Military Training 4. Camera Club 1, 2. NICHOLAS DiPARDO 74 Cottag ' e Street “ NICK ” Franklin “Thinking is but an idle thought.” " Nick” never seems to be glum. Always smiling and always happy- go-lucky. That is the best description of " Nick.” " Nick” has been in the band for four years and has been a valuable asset all this time. ’ " Nicky” played football this year and certainly proved his ability every chance he got. FRANCES ELIZABETH DONAHUE 92 Crescent Street Franklin “ FRANNIE ” “Pure and noble is her soul Success and honor will mark her goal.’’ Whose name always appeared on the " Honor Roll " ?

We see ourselves as naive freshmen entering F. H. S. for the first time as students on a day in early September of the year 193 7. We blundered through our first few weeks, wandering into the wrong classes and making fools of ourselves in general. One of the first things we had to get used to was a rather eccentric ancient history teacher who taught college style, adding to our confusion of mind. The first social event of any importance was the Freshman Acquaintance Party. At this time we were officially welcomed into the student body. T his made us very happy despite sore hands. Things went smoothly for several weeks until the Hallowe’en Party. The freshman class took a large part in this, serving on many committees and no doubt contributed largely to the success of the evening. Early in the spring of the year our history teacher took our Ancient History Class on a trip to Boston, to go through the Museum of Fine Arts. We didn’t learn much history, but we had many interesting experiences. The freshman class made its weight felt on the athletic fields. William McDonald, Freddy O ' Grady, and Arthur Caron were on the football team, while William McDonald and Arthur Caron also made the baseball team. So passed our first year as high school students. When we returned to school in the fall we were considerably inflated because of our new position as sophomores. This feeling soon left us. Early in the year our class had an organization meeting at which time we elected Charles Giancola president, Anna Pisani vice-president, Eunice Petitt secretary, Marilyn Keefe treasurer, and Mr. Beane class advisor. The Freshman Acquaintance Party had a different thrill for us this year, for now we were able to go around and welcome the new students. The various social functions passed rapidly in our sophomore year, as did our studies, at which, I trust, we acquitted ourselves creditably. We realized that we had finished half of our high school course as we returned to school for our junior year. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year. Joseph Boulanger, president; Mary McDonald, vice-president; Eunice Petitt, secretary; Marilyn Keefe, treasurer; and Mr. Beane, class advisor. As Juniors we ran many successful socials. The year rolled rapidly by until “Prom” time. This was the most important event of the year for us. The affair went off very well. Even the chaperones stayed until the end. The seniors, as is the custom, gave us tickets to the “Senior Hop” in return for the “Prom.” Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Page Forty-Seven i As Juniors, our class was all-important in the athletic field. " Jim " McDonald, " Bernie ' ’ Valente, " Les” Talamini, " Mike” D ' Angelo, " Nick” Mucciarone, William DeBaggis, " Red " McNiff, and " Sally " Buffone played football. " Sally” Buffone also played basketball. " Jim " McDonald. " Les” Talamini, " Sally” Buffone, Charles Giancola, and " Bernie " Valente upheld our honor on the baseball team. Then came the first of our all-important year as seniors. David Galgani was over¬ whelmingly elected president, and " Mike " D’Angelo, vice-president; Eunice Petitt, secretary; Marilyn Keefe, treasurer; and Mr. Beane, faculty advisor. The Freshman Acquaintance Party was the first social event of the year, of course, run by the senior class. It was a very successful evening, with movies, refreshments, and dancing. The Hallowe ' en Party was a very successful affair, due in part to the play directed by Mr. Beane and acted by members of the Senior Class. The winter season passed smoothly, with several dances and socials run by the Senior Class. Early in the spring elections were held for the " Oskey Yearbook” staff, the following being elected: Frances Donahue, editor-in-chief; Business Manager, Betty Anderson; Literary Editor, John Cohoon. Assistants—Marilyn Keefe, Helen Maringas. Claudia DiMarchi, Mary McDonald; Art Editor, Lois Swanbeck: Business Staff. Florence Mahoney, Eunice Belleville, Nick DiPardo. Bernard Valente, Mike D ' Angelo, Lester Talamini; Social Chairman, William DeBaggis; Girls’ Sports. Dorothy Potenza; Boys’ Sports, Nick Mucciarone; Literary Advisers, Miss Wig gin and Miss Holmes: Faculty Adviser, Mr. Beane. The Oskey Show was held late in April and was one of the most successful in years. The minstrel show staged by " Doc " Frazer kept the audience in gales of laughter, while the musical entertainers delighted them. Shortly after this the graduation honors were announced, as follows; Valedictorian, Frances Donahue; Salutatorian, Joan Martin; first essay, David Galgani; second essay, Mary Roth: third essay, Helen Maringas; fourth essay, Marilyn Keefe. At the next class meeting Class Day parts were chosen as follows: Dorothy Potenza, class will; Felix Cataldo, class prophecy; Bernard Valente, class gifts; Daniel Garelick, class oration ; and your historian. The very successful football team was composed almost entirely of seniors. They were; Jim McDonald and Nick Mucciarone, Co-Captains; Bernie Valente, Les Talamini, William DeBaggis, Sally Buffone, Mike D’Angelo, John Wyllie, Red McNiff, Danny Garelick, Hugh Kenney, Stanley Mclin, John Cohoon, and Nick DiPardo. The seniors took a large part in basketball also. They were: Danny Garelick, Felix Cataldo, Hugh Kenney, Salvatore Buffone, John Cohoon. The baseball team was composed mostly of seniors also. They were: Bernie Valente, Captain; Sally Buffone, Les Talamini, Jim McDonald, Sid Worster. and Red McNiff. It being considered poor taste to boast, perhaps I had better stop now before I carry this tale of our truly remarkable class beyond that of justifiable pride to the point of boasting.

Many people seem to think of it merely as a system ” which entitles them to speak and do as they wish. In this country, democracy is too often taken for granted. Very few people really appreciate our democracy, the essence of which is the right of the individual to cast his ballot and thereby share in his government. Perhaps this is because we have never seen the other side. Let us take a look at Europe. The men and women in Germany and its conquered territories are told what they are to say and do. They are made to act as so many mechanical men and women, driven by one controlling switch. Let us see what would happen if some person talked too much. He would be taken to a concentration camp and would probably die there within a short while. If he had dared be¬ long to an organization attempting to overthrow the Hitler regime, he would be tortured until he either told the wanted information or dropped dead. Germans do not stop at giving men beatings with whips. They have various other devices far more brutal and effective. They have one method of putting a man in solitary confinement and at meal time giving him steaming hot porridge with about one minute in which to eat it. It is a case of either starving or burning one’s throat. Another method is to put two victims out in the snow and, after stripping them of their clothing, to have them beat each other. If his country is ever conquered we would be vassals of a totalitarian state and many of us would undergo these same tortures. What can we do to prevent this catastrophe? The government has found a way by building up our army under the Selective Service Act. Many people seem to think that this is putting everybody in the army. If we stop to compare figures, we realize what a great difference there is in the percentage of men involved in military work in the United States and in Germany or England. True, we are not in the war yet, but we must be prepared in case war cannot be averted. But as yet, only a small percentage of our population is in the army. Many factories are busy supplying all the men in the army with proper clothing and equipment. Naturally, this lowers the production of many of our every-day needs. We shall probably go without some things for a time or at least pay higher prices for them. In order to pay for all these army supplies, the government has had to impose more taxes upon us. But, however it may hit us as individuals, we, the people of the United States, must have faith in our government and its executives. We must work together so that we shall have a strong defense and be able to preserve our democracy. We must beware of those who would try to disillusion us about the freedom we now have. These so-called fifth columnists have conquered many countries for Germany with their propaganda. If they are allowed to get started, they swiftly develop a large organization. When a country is softened on the inside, an outside force may very easily crush it. Examples of this are shown by the way Austria and Czechoslovakia were captured. Here, in America, we have methods of stopping these fifth columnists. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Dies Committee, both of which are active in investigating un- Nineteert Hundred Forty-One Paye Fifty-Nine i M I American activities, have already thwarted various attempts of the Nazis to gain power here. These committees and their large forces of men are investigating all sorts of propaganda day in and day out. We hear many things in the course of our lives each day. Every American still has free¬ dom of speech, and by discussing the problems of our country with others we form many dif¬ ferent theories. We hear of all the suffering caused by Nazi victories and sometimes wonder if the 3,000 miles of ocean will check the chaotic inferno. Yet in spite of the many conquests of Germany abroad, the American people must remain undaunted in spirit. We must help our country willingly and be proud to serve it. We must preserve and cherish this great land of ours. Only by cooperation shall we be able to defend our land and remain out of the inevitable totalitarian state we would be put into if we were conquered. And so in these United States the preservation of democracy is being accomplished by building up our army, cooperating with industry, turning deaf cars to propaganda, and keeping the proper American spirit. If we think of the difficulties our forefathers overcame to save this country and make it what it is today, we shall realize that the Red, White, and Blue must wave forever over our great land. We must have faith in and preserve our great democracy and believe that this government of the people, by the people, and,for the people, must not and shall not perish from the earth.

The spirit of the players, and their willingness to win made it a team which anyone would have been proud to coach. " Its great spirit was shown in the game with Medway in which the team, after a hard struggle, came from behind to eke out a 7 to 6 win. The game with North Attleboro was lost by a score of 7 to 6. yet Coach Colbert, as well as the fans, considered it a moral victory. The team showed its offensive power when it overwhelmed St. Mary’s of Milford. Bellingham, and Hopkinton. and its defensive power when it held a heavily favored Canton team to a scoreless tie. The annual Thanksgiving game with Walpole was called because of bad weather conditions. The kicking department was ably handled by Co-Captain " Jim " McDonald, along with hard running Captain-Elect Henry Bartelloni. Fred O ' Grady and Emilio Dellorco pro ved valu¬ able assets in the backfield with their excellent tackling and running. Heading the list of these unheralded linesmen, who were making tackles and opening holes, were Co-Captain Nick Mucciarone, Bernie Valente, Lester Talamini, " Mike " D Angelo, and " Sally " Buffone.

After strenuous pre-season practice sessions, the prospects looked fairly bright. The boys lost an overtime tussle to Mt. St. Charles and then the difficulties began. An epidemic of foot ailments shelved Capt. Buffone, Henry Bartelloni, Russ. Johnston, and John Cohoon. To complete the picture, Joe Carr, star Sophomore guard, broke his wrist in an early practice session and was lost for the season. Despite these mishaps, the boys played some fine basketball and managed to salvage five of their fourteen games against rugged opposition. Capt. ' ' Sally’ ' Buffone proved a capable leader of a team beset by injuries and it was his good spirit that kept the boys on the move. Capt. Buffone, “Eddie " Dailey, and “Chub " Tracy were outstanding offensively, while Henry Bartelloni, Russ. Johnston, Joe Carr, and Danny Garelick stood out in the guard positions. Substitutes Cohoon, Wyllie, Cataldo, and Kenney contributed much to the team. With five veterans back for next year, Coach Beane is looking to a highly successful season. BASKETBALL SCHEDULE Here Mt.

About 25 candidates reported for the various positions, of whom, Capt. Valente, Tracy, McDonald. Bartelloni. Talamini. Harris, Buffone, Saster, and McNiff, were the seasoned veterans. The squad played practice games with Dean Academy up until the date set for the first game. During the scrimmage games the absence of a capable pitcher was very noticeable, and so Coach Colbert was forced to convert a veteran catcher into a veteran pitcher in one lesson. The opening game proved the effectiveness of the conversion, for Henry pitched a no-hit, no-run game, defeating Wrentham State School 9-0. The next game was with Foxboro and was an easy 12-2 victory. The third game Franklin drew Norwood as an opponent and the many times winner of the schoolboy title had to go eleven innings to beat our pets 9-8. The boys on the squad already mentioned, along with Dailey, Worster, and Carr, should finally help to fill out a winning aggregation.

We have been fortunate this year in having a corps of cheer leaders whose spirit and enthusiasm has been a source of pride to both students and faculty. Regardless of how the fortunes of war flowed, these young ladies were always on hand, exerting every effort in the hope of achieving victory. And so we say to them, “Three Cheers, and a big Hooray!” May there be many more like you next year and every year. Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Page Sixty-Seven § a GIRLS’ SPORTS r I ' HIS year girls’ sports have been intramural, so that every girl in high school who enjoys playing for the fun she gets out of the exercise, or the satisfaction of competing, has a chance to play any game she wants. A point system has been inaugurated this year in girls’ athletics whereby all may take part in any of the following sports: fieldball, volleyball, basketball, badminton, and softball. These sports have been run off throughout the year and a girl may accumulate as many points as she wishes toward her awards of numerals, letters, star, and emblem. Each sport is credited with the following points: Fieldball 20 points Volleyball 20 “ Basketball 30 “ Badminton 20 “ Softball 30 “ Posture 30 “ Posture is worked into the sports system to encourage the improvement of bodily car¬ riage as well as earning points toward awards. A girl must take part in a definite amount of games played in any sport to earn her points. The following are the total points necessary for various awards: Numerals Letter Star Emblem 100 points 170 “ 200 “ 300 “ These points accumulate from year to year so that all have an equal chance of earning even the highest award, an emblem, in the sport they favor. The Senior team won the basketball tournament with the Sophomores as runners-up. Both these teams played outside games with Hopedale and Framingham, the Seniors winning both their games and the Sophomores breaking even. The Freshmen had a tournament of their own and the games were exciting and interesting. In the badminton tournament, in which 54 doubles teams took part, Betty Gallant and Pat Martin won the championship after a thrilling and closely contested finals match against Laura Chelotti and Eleanor DeGrazio, who were runners-up. The point system has been proven very successful and popular by the large number of girls that have taken part in the new program. To the right are pictures of the winning teams in fieldball, volleyball, and basketball; group pictures of contestants in badminton tournament after two weeks of play-offs — and group pictures of girls who will compete against each other in softball.

Only two members left last year, so it has the same experienced group it had last year, plus a few new members. The orchestra got off to an early start this year when it played for one of the first assemblies. The student body received it with enthusiasm at the very beginning and since then the orchestra has played at a majority of the assemblies. Outside performances included the Alden Club, Grange, and Parent-Teacher Association. For the orchestra members, the high point of the year was their appearance for the first time in school history as an integral part of this year ' s excellent Oskey Show. The theme of the show was introduced by Orchestra and Entire Cast amid fast-changing tempos, and the finale, “God Bless America,’’ in the same manner. The orchestra will suffer greatly by graduation, losing such capable and cooperative Seniors as Frances Donahue, Lois Swanbeck, Laurice Cook, Walter Cook, and Kay Rood. These members at all times have been willing performers in solos, accompanying, or in the orchestral unit. They will be missed greatly.

Murray Stevens. For the first time in recent years, a reed section existed, consisting of three altos, one tenor, and two clarinets. The trumpet section was above average and the percussion and bass were adequate. From the beginning of the year, all members turned, out faithfully for rehearsals, and constant improvement has been noted. During the year, the band has played for assemblies and the Class Day exercises. The feature attraction, of course, was the annual Provincetown Boat Trip on the Steam¬ ship Steel Pier on June 7th, an occasion enjoyed by both band members and their school friends. Page Seventy-Four Nineteen Hundred Forty-One COMMERCIAL CLUB This year ' s officers appointed for the Commercial Club are as follows: President .Mary Cazzarine Vice-President .Alice O ' Grady Secretary .Ruth Young Treasurer .Eunice Belleville r I HE club, under the direction of Miss Bullukian, has been successful in raising the Commer- cial Club Scholarship Fund of $75, which is the purpose of the organization. There are fourteen members in all, and we all enjoyed many little parties and socials among ourselves. The Blue and White is edited by the Commercial Club, and has been as successful as in previous years. This year The Blue and White has undergone a change, the change being in the form of additional pages and a rise in the price. This new plan has met with approval from the student body. Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Page Seventy-Five GLEE CLUB T HE Glee Club has had many new songs this year. We believe it to be the most progressive year for quite a while. It had planned a Christmas Cantata for the school assembly, but due to the unfortunate accident to Mrs. Riley, the club was unable to perform. William Martello took Mrs. Riley ' s place during her illness. He taught the girls quite a few different songs. He prepared the girls for their yearly assembly. The club sang for the Alden Club on April 28 of this year. They also sang a favorite number, “Sympathy, " for the Oskey. All the girls took part in the Chorus. Mrs. Riley came back to prepare the girls for the Class Day exercises. They sang “The Barefoot Trail " and “The Merry Widow Waltz.” The Glee Club will lose some of its star performers this year. Page Seventy-Six Nineteen Hundred Forty-One OSKEY O N APRIL 24th and 25th the Senior Class presented the annual Oskey Show for the benefit of the yearbook. The production was in the form of a Minstrel Show, with Mr. Frazer directing the speaking parts and Mr. William Martello in charge of the music. On the financial side, it was the most successful production ever presented by any senior class, and the quality of the production can best be shown in the fact that the attendance on the second night far surpassed that of the first night. Danny Garelick served as interlocutor and kept things moving from start to finish. To the members of all the classes who assisted, we extend our thanks, appreciation, and sincere hope that they will meet with as much success as we did. Nineteen Hundred Forty-One Page Seventy-Seven MILITARY DRILL A FTER the Christmas vacation, Military Drill was introduced for boys on Friday of each week. Commander George Cook was placed in charge of Drill and was assisted by Richard Baker. Under the excellent guidance of these two gentlemen, Military Drill made rapid strides and proved unusually popular with the boys. A simple but attractive brown military suit and overseas cap was adopted. It is expected that the well-drilled units will present a striking appearance when they march in pubic.
