TTcGREW THE SENIOR FLICKER DEDICATION TO Miss Frances H. McGrew who has endeared herself to all of us with her charming personality and cheery smile, and who has been an inspira- tion to so many of us in cultivating a love of literature, we, the Class of 1936, gratefully dedicate our Flicker THE SENIOR FLICKER THE FLICKER STAFF, 1936 Courtesy of Kupsinel THE SENIOR FLIGKER ll PROLOGUE Someday, with all the dance cards, A. A. tickets, and other souvenirs of our high school days, this Flicker may be relegated to the attic. Those who once smiled sentimen- tally over the " Prophecy,” the " Ballot,” and the auto- graphs, will laugh cynically, or snort in derision when some years later they view the tattered remnants. This outcome is inevitable, even though the Flicker is our very own, in fact, almost a part of us. However, if it gives pleasure for a little while, it will have served its purpose. May its ashes rest as honorably and peacefully as those of any Trojan hero. 12 THE SENIOR FLIGKER CLASS ROLL Name— ALBERT LARSEN Address — 127 Prospect Street Course — General Nickname — “Al,” “Swede” Most Distinctive Characteristic — Ears, freckles and hair comb Ambition — To play Basketball right Honors — Honor Student 1. 2. 3, 4 ; Class President ’35, ’36; Second Lieutenant: Captain Company A. 4: Basketball 1, 2, 3. 4; Baseball 4; Roose- velt Club 4: Chairman of R.

Tobey, Second Lieutenant 62 THE SENIOR FLICKER Crash! Bang! The sickening thud of metal crashing against wood split the stillness of a quiet country road. A limp body hurtled into space and landed on the stump of a nearby tree. Reckless driving had claimed another victim! A cloudy haze arose as the soul of the unfortunate creature journeyed upward into Eternity. As it neared the keeper of the Golden Gates of Heaven, St. Peter, the mist compressed and gradually took the form of a high-school student. He stopped before St. Peter and questioned him as to his admission to the Eternal Land. To the student’s great surprise, the admission which he had to pay was to relate the highlights of his freshman year. Hence, he began: " When we entered in the September of 193 5 , we were hilariously laughed at by the upperclassmen because of the haze in which we drifted, but soon these haughty students calmed down as we made ourselves conspicuous. " Many of the class answered to the call for football applicants. A capable group including Anthony Albert, Walter Murphy, Albert Silveira, Melbourne Mountain, Chester McNeil, Bernard Lawson, William Greenberg, Walter Mc- Farland, Ralph Pino, Joseph Curcuru, Lloyd Rose, and Robert Roper raised havoc over opponents’ gridirons. " The Freshman Party was, as usual, one of the outstanding highlights of the year. Mary Cronin was chairman with Lois Newhouse and Jean McPhee serving on her committee. Gay autumn colors added the artistic touch of Indian Summer. Refreshments and dancing dominated the gay affair. " The Glee Club, Class of ’39, had its own officers who were Dorothy Flygare as president, Jean McPhee as vice-president, Jean Fitzpatrick as sec- retary, and Janet McLaughlin as treasurer. The operetta which had been planned could not be carried out because of Miss Curry’s illness. A Hallowe’en Party, in charge of Lila Johnson, was given by the club. " Lois Newhouse delighted the throngs at Vattie with her melodious singing, and Eva Hepper did a snappy tap-dance. " Harriet Karcher was champ speller in our class, and reached the finals. She gave the upperclassmen a fight with her keen opposition. Other spellers that gave the Freshmen a name were Olga Smith, Melbourne Mountain, Alvin Williams, Albert Scriven, Richard Kain, and Constance Rich. " The Bazaar with Jean McPhee as Chairman and Lois Newhouse, Mary Cronin, and Shirley Crowell on the Freshman Booth committee deserved high honors. Baby pink and blue were the well selected colors for our class. The girls sold baskets and dishes with overwhelming results and made the affair a huge success. THE SENIOR FLICKER 63 " Amazing results were shown when Coach Norman C. Ross issued a call for basketball candidates. Edward Middleton, William Beaman, Franklin Nelson, John Larson, Anthony Albert, Richard Perry, Ral ph Pino, Joseph Curcuru, Joseph Favazza, Robert Porper, and Raymond Freitas won positions on the freshman team for displaying their able talent of the game. " The band claimed such prominent members of our class as Robert Mclnnis, Roland Collins, Everett Oakes, Charles Robinson, and Edward Hienon. " The Flash, our weekly newspaper, had its power added to it by the con- tributions of Joanne Hartford, Mary Cronin, Lois Newhouse, Ernest Leavitt, and Melvin Kramer. " The Latin Club, under the personal direction of Miss Josephine R. Ray, elected to admit freshmen who had an ' A’ grade for the first four terms. Priscilla Cole, Jean Fitzpatrick, Dorothy Flygare, Eleanore Mattos, Priscilla Zager, Irvin Anderson, Harold Cohen, Melvin Kramer, Ralph Tarr, William Thanos, and Merle Williamson were admitted. " As soon as spring arrived, the freshmen baseball candidates, headed by Anthony Albert, Sherman Ruth, and Melbourne Mountain won recognition by their brilliant play on the field.” As the student slowly finished, the gates opened and his soul floated into the Eternal Paradise. JEAN McPHEE ERNEST LEAVITT MELVIN KRAMER As is always the case with incoming first year men, we were as green in September 1934 as the new mown grass. The seniors, with their aloofness, frightened us; the juniors, imitating the seniors in a lighter manner, bored us; while the sophomores, elated over their sudden elevation into the limelight, vented their disgust upon our uncouth manners, pathetic greenness and our efforts to emulate their jaunty swagger. We took it that year as have all freshmen since Columbus espied the distant shore-line of America and " Jawn” Harvard established his educational institution, but we also learned. Football with its thrill of bodily contact and the opportunity to match brain against brawn failed to stampede the then " grun freshman horde.” Frank Chandler, Thomas Hill, Toivo Maki, Arthur O’Hanley, Bucky Riley, Leo Scolo and Ed Visnick did respond to the " do or die spirit” for Gloucester High on the gridiron and acquitted themselves nobly, but as a class we refrained from any wholesale participation in the sport. Rather than athletic stars, we 64 THE SENIOR FLICKER were potential mental giants revelling in the lore of languages, history and math. Basketball put in an appearance and here the freshman boys reached the heights. Frank Chandler, Danny Hill, Michael Iovanne, John Langley, Henry Levasseur, Jock Lewis, Jimmy Parsons, Bucky Tischoff comprised Coach Vernon C. Hooper’s group of promising court men who swept through all opposition. The freshman party, the event of the year, was a big success. The com- mittee: Virginia Vibert, Madeleine Nugent and Marjorie Bradley planned and made the occasion all that it was. As usual, the " Astaires” of the class shamed the underclassmen who tried to surpass our light-fantastic efforts. The girls chorus, replete with frosh girls, contributed much toward the success of " Loose Change,” a musical comedy. Conspicuous promenaders in the snappy R. O. T. C. band were Charles Beeman, Vincent Frederickson, Newt Hubbard, Chester Roberts, Bryan Russ, Charles Tischoff and Harold Wolozin. Their melodic renditions surpassed anything ever produced by an untried group before. The orchestra, also numbered many frosh adherents. Newman Hubbard, Henry Levasseur, Bryan Russ, Albert Silveria, Charles Tischoff and last, but not least, Harold Wolozin, who blew and tooted away amidst the plaudits of the student body. Harold Wolozin scooped the student body weekly with his sparkling journalistic work on the Flash. Our grandest triumph was the winning of the annual Roosevelt Trophy Contest by Weymouth Marshall who waxed eloquent on his discourse " Prison Improvements.” The intelligence of his argument combined with a superb delivery unanimously earned him the award and to our freshman class came the coveted trophy. James Parsons completed the picture by receiving second place with his " Review of 1934.” These two occurences elevated us to a new high in the eyes of the upper classmen, who had heretofore regarded us as mere " pests.” The bazaar supported an attractive freshman booth which Priscilla Gor- man, Mary Alice Cameron, and Virginia Vibert so capably managed. Presentation Day, found Mary Alice Cameron and Phillip Poirer the recipients of Sawyer Medals. As a mental group, we had not anything to concede to our school brethren. Whether it was highest honors, honors, or honorable mention, the class of ’3 8 had an amazing list of names. The school year terminated with the entire class justly enthusiastic over our success as a first year group. September 8, 193 5 found us back into harness raring to go. Still a bit awkward in our meanderings, we sought balm in ridiculing the freshman, every one of them as green and pathetic as we were in ’ 34 Football rolled around and lo and behold, out of nowhere, sprang a sur- prising group of future grid greats, Russ Howard, Bryan Russ, Porter Bradley, THE SENIOR FLICKER 65 and Bucky Riley performed regularly on Coach Ross’ frontier and backfield. The Flash shone all the brighter through the literary contributions of Virginia Vibert, Edward Peterson and Harold Wolozin, still the sensational news scooper of the staff. The Handbook Committee, all sophomores, presented weekly enlightening articles on school citizenship, customs and clubs. Phillip Poirer, chairman; James Parsons, librarian; and Warren Tucker, Virginia Vibert, Katherine Arges, Hubert Fiander, Elarold Wolozin, and Nancy Murphy comprised this group. Nancy Murphy and Beatrice Souza managed to wade through the primeval forest erected by Edward Peterson, Russell Moody, and Porter Bradley, the soph property committee, and as a result the French play scored a smashing hit. Once again we modest sophs attained the heights as dramatic artists. Madeleine Nugent proved a capable chairman of the French Club bazaar booth while Viola Ray was elected secretary of the Latin Club. Chester Roberts, the stolid man of the class, carried his masculine frame to the city hall stage where he valiantly spelled and resisted spelling down until the issue rested between three. Chet, ever the gentleman, not wishing to outstrip the lady, failed and the lady, Barbara Howell, went on to win. Basketball found Russ O’Maley holding down an important first team berth while Bucky Riley continued as the spearhead of the reserve attack. The lettermen aware of Russ’ athletic greatness, elected him captain but he grace- fully declined the honor so that the juniors might retain the coveted captaincy. Company B, paced by three military-inclined sophs in the rear row, cap- tured the individual prize drill Presentation night. Jimmy Parsons, Porter Bradley and Hubert Fiander marched to the judges with inflated chests to receive the medals. Russ O’Maley, our versatile athletic luminary, and Bucky Riley were mainstays on Nate Ross’ baseball team. Track, a new school sport, lured Henry Levasseur into showing his wares. Last year we were shipwrecked on a deserted isle reminiscing over past memorable incidents; today we stand on a mountain peak retaining past pleas- ant memories, and, eyeing the future — one of a decidedly roseate hue — with confidence. To attain the heights in the next two years, we need only emulate the deeds accomplished by our group in ’3 5 and ’36. EDWARD PETERSON 66 THE SENIOR FLICKER BEN PARSONS WINS PRESIDENCY The class of 1937 has elected its class officers who are as follows: Benjamin Witham Parsons, president; John C. Finegan, vice-president; Grace Clark, secretary; Everett Martin, treasurer. The president entered high school from the Sawyer grammar school and is taking the general course in which he has gained many honors. The vice-president on being graduated from the Collins school, received a Sawyer Medal. He is taking the college preparatory course, is captain-elect of the 1936-37 basketball team, plays football and baseball, is a popular platoon sergeant and is prominent scholastically. The Lane School is represented by the secretary and treasurer, both Sawyer Medal winners who are members of the Commercial course in which they have walked away with many honors. THE FORCE BEHIND G. H. S.— THE FLASH One of the most enduring of the school’s publications is the Flash , which makes a weekly appearance in the pages of the Gloucester Daily Times. Though there has been no official editorial board this year, the junior class was repre- sented by John C. Finegan, Sophia Vrachos, and Norman Green, who have acted in an editorial capacity several times. Evidently the junior class has a nose for news, as reporters are many. They include the following: Elizabeth Collins, Margaret Compton, Anne Davis, Margaret Fosberry, Julie Holloran, Geraldine Maclnnis, and Phyllis Rowley. STEVENS’ BOOK REVIEWERS ELECTED After a long series of debates over eliminations, ten juniors were elected to represent the Stevens’ Book Reviewers for the school year 1936-37. The new members are Anne Davis, Julie Holloran, Margaret Fosberry, Wilma Curtis, Phyllis Rowley, John C. Finegan, Charles Goodwin, Donald Cunning- ham, Bertram Kupsinel, and Norman Green. The qualifications for which these reviewers were recommended were vocabulary, style, interest in reading, and correctness. THREE JUNIORS TO CAPTAIN ’36 ’37 BALL TEAMS John C. Finegan, Charles Grillo, and Albert Robinson who have captured grammar school championships, inter-class titles of freshmen, sophomore and junior years, varsity, and all-county league positions have been chosen co- captains of the varsity basketball teams for 1936, 1937. THE SENIOR FLICKER 67 The three old faithfuls who have stuck through three years of football practice and who will undoubtedly be regulars next fall are Joseph McNeil, 1 Alfred Bruni, and Loring Alves. Paul Clark will be captain and other probable members of the team are Pratt, Gaspar, Finegan, L. Williams and Watters. |i Gloucester High’s immature track team is strengthened by two juniors: James Lufkin and Alfred Bruni. Finegan, Watters, MacNeil, Grillo and Robinson are doing their part towards giving the high school a good basketball team. " COMEDY” THEME OF SCHOOL PLAYS A surprising number of Greta Garbo’s and Clark Gable’s turned out at the " Pattie” tryouts, the first major play of the year, a comedy — and a musical at that. Lois Greene, Jean Rooke, Sophia Vrachos, and Jack Brown our junior stage personalities gave animated and very professional performances. In addition to being an all-american musical comedy, it offered an attrac- tive story, a splendid singing score, and a number of modern and extremely original dances. Then appeared the French club play, " Le Medecin Malgre Lui” a farcical melodrama, certainly, the best of its kind. The junior ability was displayed by Jack Brown as the charming young lover, and Sophia Vrachos, as the impetuous, quibbling wife of " le medecin.” General humors combined with the keen wit of " le medecin” made this comedy the " tops.” OFFICERS OF TOMORROW-SERGEANTS OF TODAY On Presentation Day 193 5, Captain Raymond Schum announced the following boys as platoon sergeants for the year 193 5-36, James Lufkin, Donald Cunningham, Russell Lucas, Norman Green, William Smith, Harrison Poole, Frank Fierra, John C. Finegan, John Wood, and Andrew Lane. At the annual competitive individual drill held at the high school party in November, William Smith was awarded the medal for excellence in the manual of arms. The winner of the competitive prize squad drill, the squad representing Company B, was commanded by Sergeant Norman Green, and included the following juniors: Robert Burns, Robert Barner, Paul McPherson, and Ralph Budrow. CLUBS AND MORE CLUBS German Club Those progressive German linguists have two clubs. Sarah Feldman is secretary of the original German club and Mildred Silveria is vice-president of the new German Dramatic Club. 68 THE SENIOR FLICKER Girls’ Club Anne W. Davis was elected vice-president of the Girls’ club at the end of her sophomore year and will automatically ascend to the presidency next year. Elizabeth Kuivanen is assistant-secretary. Junior members of the newly- formed cabinet are: Ruth Ellis, Anne Banks, Julie Holloran, Margaret Mar- chant, and Barbara McEwen. Latin Club Due mainly to the enthusiasm among junior students of the classics, the thriving Latin club was organized this year. Three of the officers are juniors: James Lufkin, president; Julie Holloran, vice-president; and Leo Grimes, secretary. Service Club Anne W. Davis is secretary of this most important organization. French Club Margaret Compton is treasurer of one of the clubs devoted to a Romance language. THE GIRLS SHOW THEM Phyllis Rowley, Ruth Ellis, Elissa Kuivanen and Anne Banks won their second silver basketball for inter-mural championships at the end of their sophomore year. All these girls were on the winning team their freshman year and either Phyllis Rowley or Ruth Ellis will be with the winner this year and will receive gold basketballs. BEACON STAGES COMEBACK After a year of hibernation, the Beacon , the school monthly magazine, was revived by the earnest efforts of the editorial board, of which Phyllis Rowley and Charles Goodwin were active members. There were two editions — a football number in November, and Valentine issue in February. A large number of juniors were included on the business staff: Harriette Merchant, Elissa Kuivanen, Olga Rogers, Margaret Marchant, Anne Davis, Harry Anderson, and James Lufkin. JUNIOR TEA GALA EVENT In the brilliantly decorated and gayly colored atmosphere of the " gym” the junior lads and lassies floated ecstatically to the soothing strains of " The Six Musical Clippers.” Entertainment was supplied by Jean Rooke, singing and Florence Mann, dancing. Tea, cake, and ice cream were served. The general committee included: Mary Moody, chairman; Ann Banks, Nathalie Cooke, Anne Davis, Julie Holloran, Phyllis Rowley, and Mildred Silveria. THE SENIOR FLICKER 69 The success of the Sophomore Party was due to the following: Geraldine Mclnnis, Barbara McEwen, and Margaret Fosberry, while that of the Freshman Party was due to, Elissa Kuivanen, chairman; Virginia Broder, Sadie Alves, Anne Banks, Phyllis Rowley and Sophia Vrachos. MUSIC MAKES THE SCHOOL GO ROUND Band Glouceser High may well be proud of the splendid appearance of their R. O. T. C. band, which has proved its prowess in previous years by exciting considerable notice at music festivals and competitions. The following juniors are included in the personnel of the band: John Langly, Leo Grimes, Russell Williams, William Natti, Robert Powers, and Daniel Bloomfield. Orchestra The orchestra, which is prominent in school activities — playing at assem- blies, graduation exercises, and in various school productions, got off to a good start this year with an enrollment of thirty-seven students, which includes the following juniors: Leo Grimes, Elizabeth Collins, Olga Rogers, Mary Cortina, Bertram Kupsinel, Harry Anderson, John Langly, Bryce McClellan, and Russell Williams. Girls’ Club Orchestra The Girls’ Club is fortunate in having an orchestra composed of members with musical talents. The junior musicians are as follows: Elizabeth Collins, Alberta Richardson, Mary Cortina, and Olga Rogers. BAZAAR DRAWS HUGE CROWD Partly because of the colorful green and white decorations but mostly because of the smiling eyes of the Irish colleens, the junior class booth was outstanding. Edith Bruce, Anne Davis, Ruth Ellis, Julie Holloran, and Mar- garet Marchant worked with unlimited enthusiasm and they deserve much credit. The Mathematics Booth, very English indeed, with its poster of John Bull, and red and blue decorations was under the direction of Sophia Vrachos, Phyllis Rowley, and Priscilla Kippen. In several of the other booths the following juniors took charge, Harriette Marchant, Helen Wonson, Wilma Curtis, James Lufkin, and John Wood. ROOSEVELT TROPHY CONTESTS The importance of Byrd’s Flight to the South Foie was discussed by Elizabeth Collins in her Roosevelt Trophy speech our first year. Helena Marchant, our sophomore representative, created a great deal of amusement by her eloquent discourse on The Gossipers. Our third year, a spelling contest replaced the customary speeches. The junior representatives were Julie Holloran, Virginia Naves, Grace Clark, Hilia Johnson, Elsie Hudder, Bertha Wagner, William Smith, Manuel Souza, James 70 THE SENIOR FLICKER Sallah, Robert Herrick, Richard Bulduc, Matthew Lamonico, and Bertram Kupsinel. William Smith brought honors to our class by being the runner-up. HISTORIETTE JR. Flash! Interclass first year typewriting contest won by Elissa Kuivanen, popular member of the junior class. Flash! William Smith wins second place in the annual Roosevelt Trophy Contest. Flash! Priscilla Kippen, brilliant junior mathematician, substitutes for Winslow Parkhurst and Miss Annie P. Marr. Here’s one girl who knows the binomial theorem! The Sophomore year was terminated for Grace Clark and James Lufkin by capturing the coveted Sawyer Medals. The freshman honors were evenly dis- tributed among Sarah Feldman, Julie Holloran, Gilman Harvey, and George Martin. For the first year a junior, Phyllis Rowley, was head librarian of the English Office Library, assisted by Wilma Curtis and Anne Davis. The Junior girls not only displayed their ability in selecting fashionable wear for the Sergeant’s party but also men. ANNE DAVIS PHYLLIS ROWLE Y SOPHIE VRACHOS JULIE HOLLORAN THE SENIOR FLICKER 71 " Oh, for the good old days when we were freshmen,” sighed Bill, leaning over the back of a chair in the home of Barbara Johnson, where several friends were talking and drinking tea. While Bill was lost in reverie, the ever industrious Simon Sandler, who had been delving into the contents of Barbara’s " Memory Book,” suddenly cackled triumphantly. " Look at this page from our first issue of the Beacon. It gives the names of all the staff members. Remember how Evelyn Crowell and John McEwen upheld the class honor as reporters? " Efere is the repertoire of the high school orchestra at their assembly that winter. In the list of members it gives as freshmen the names of Isabel Elasel- gard, Bettie Johnson, Sylvia Slafsky, Phyllis Black, James Morrow and Simon Sandler.” " Yes, our freshmen class was very musical,” interrupted Bill, " and re- member that the next year Priscilla Smith joined the orchestra as pianist.” " Here’s a clipping about the prize winning oration in the annual Roose- velt Trophy speaking contest. Phil Tartas was certainly quite a modern Demosthenes in his speech on Technocracy .” " And wasn’t that a clever talk he gave on the Mad Genius , the address winning honorable mention a year later,” added Jim. " Look at this Flash clipping of the Glee Club operetta. It gives a long list of those who took part. The major roles were played by Priscilla Smith and Jeannette Stevens. Remember Jeannette in the character of the Japanese maiden, Lotus Blossom?” " What’s this article on the next page. Oh, it was cut out of the Times on Presentation Day that June. ‘Sawyer Medals for superiority of scholar- ship were awarded to Velma Canto, Phyllis Black, Nyyrikki Stenberg, and Philip Tartas.’ " Our sophomore year was probably even more successful than the one before. Right at the start, Judith Wonson, Helen O’Malley, John Dustin, Tom Bolger, and Arthur Federman made a good beginning for the class in their appointment to Beacon staff positions.” " And that wasn’t the only literary organization represented by sopho- mores,” interposed Barbara, " for here’s an account of one of the Stevens’ Book Reviewers’ Teas held monthly. Judith Wonson, Evelyn Crowell, and Helen O’Malley are in the list of guests as well as juniors and seniors. " Here’s an attractive folder designed by the decoration committee of the sophomore tea. Remember the fun we had that afternoon? After all, it was our first real social event, and added a great deal to our prestige. Betty Stick- ney certainly made a very efficient chairman.” 72 THE SENIOR FLICKER " Did you see that play at the theatre last night?” asked Barbara. " It had an excellent cast and reminded me of the French club play given that year. By the way, here’s a picture of the French play cast. Look at Robert Larsson as the English doughboy, Winifred Silveira as the waitress, and Nyyrikki Stenberg in the cook’s outfit.” " Oh, here’s a photograph of the Flash staff from the ’3 5 Flicker. Say, there’s Arthur Federman, assistant editor, and Betty Stickney, Daniel Runkle, Mary Johnson, and Simon Sandler, reporters.” " Here’s a favor Jimmy gave me at the Junior Tea,” exclaimed Barbara. Look inside, there is a list of the different committees — it says that Bettie Johnson, and Priscilla Smith were co-chairmen.” Simon burst forth, " Don’t tell me you saved that false mustache I wore at the Junior Class Play? Will you ever forget Bill Flygare and Janet Critchett trying to play the parts of the new minister and his wife?” " In this program of the annual Teachers’ Association play, there’s a list of the players in the Girls’ Club Orchestra, which furnished the musical enter- tainment. Here are the names of Isabel Haselgard, Priscilla Smith, Sylvia Slafsky, Alberta Richardson, and Phyllis Black.” Jim mused reminiscently, " I had a good time writing for the Flash staff. Here’s a summary I wrote of the French Club play. The chief roles were enacted by Simon Sandler, (the irate father), Robert Larsson, Nyyrikki Sten- berg, and Winifred Silveira.” " Look at this Field Day program. It gives a list of the R. O. T. C. Officers and the roster of the band. Most of the fellows joined in their freshman year and continued straight through until graduation. Our class was represented by Sheldon Knowles, Bob Holloran, Lawrence Fredrickson, Louis Johnson, James Morrow, Simon Sandler, Hugo Ja cobson, Manuel Perry — remember that wiffle haircut? — Theodore Korkatti, and Babe McRae. Remember Bob Lundberg’s winning of the Haskell Medal? " Read this write-up in the Sports section of the Traveler. ' The basket- ball victors who helped to win the glory for Gloucester in the final quarter of last night’s game were Theodore " Teddy” Williams, " Al” Larson, Donald Macauley, Frank Re, and Robert Hunt.’ " Here are the results of the class election. ' Albert Larson, president; Robert Tobey, vice-president; Priscilla Wonson, secretary; Philip Tartas, Treasurer.’ " This Gloucester Times item mentions those who received Sawyer Medals at that year’s Presentation Day assembly. The junior winners were Esther Heinonen, Bettie Johnson, and Robert Bosselman. " Look, this is a picture of the football players in the 193 5 Thanksgiving game at Peabody, cut out of the rotogravure section of the Sunday Herald. There are Tucky Holmes, Tom Bolger, Bill McLaughlin, Teddy Williams, Ralph O’Maley, Lloyd Dennis, Bob Karcher, and George Lemos. Bob Edson, Henry Lima, and William Dixon were substitutes. THE SENIOR FLICKER 73 " I’ve given these next pages over entirely to clubs and their activities,” said Barbara. " This program reminds me of the French Club play. Remem- ber Phil Tartas, Le Medecin Malgre Lui, Bob Holloran, and Ralph Campbell, president of the club? And next here is a snapshot of Bert Codinha, president of the Spanish Club, and John Matheson, president of the German Club, the Deutsche Verein. This photo from the Post is of Teddy Williams, president of the Athletic Association. Fannie Vrachos was in charge of the Service Club that year. She autographed my G’ for me. " The vice-president of the Roosevelt Club gave me this snap of Bill McLaughlin, who was elected president. Wasn’t the club successful under Bill as leader? This is a musical composition the Glee Club sang at the annual festival under the leadership of Lillian Rose. This is a list of the Girls’ Club cabinet officials. The outstanding were Priscilla Smith, president; Virginia Parsons, secretary, and Betty Stickney, treasurer. " Do you remember the Roosevelt Trophy Spelling Contest? Barbara Howell spelled down about sixty competitors and won the prize with the word ' Vicissitude’.” " What’s this, Barb?” " Why, it’s a postcard Priscilla Smith sent me from Springfield, at the time that she, Isabel Haselgard, Jeannette Stevens, and Lawrence Fredrickson represented Gloucester High School there in the New England Music Festival. " Here’s a bunch of favors and trinkets from our social activities during our last year in High School. A piece of jewelry from the Girls’ Club Bazaar — that was a great carnival — a favor from the Senior teas — Winifred Silveira was chairman, remember? and a bouquet from the annual Mother-Daughter banquet. That was the beginning of the social round. Emma Gill was in charge. Without Miss Wolfe, we couldn’t have done much! " I’m glad I saved this program of the Senior Class Plays. Great sailors — Bod Lundberg, He.bert Burns, Simon Sandler, and Bob Holloran, would make!” " What’s this, a modern version of the Frankenstein monster?” demanded Jim quizzically, a cloud of amazement darkening his face. " Of course not. Don’t you recognize Robert Parsons as the idol return- ing to the inn for his eye? The play performed by the boys was the melo- drama, a Night At An Inn. But try and beat the girls’ interpretation of Paris Sets the Styles , said Barbara, Ruth Kramer played the lead and Mary Johnson, Ellen Kauppinen, Janet Critchett, Winifred Silveira, and I were also in it.” " Oh, here’s my old 1936 Flicker. Look at the editorial staff on the first page. There’s Judith Wonson’s name as editor, and Bettie Johnson’s as adver- tising manager. They were the two who were largely responsible for making the Flicker a success.” ' Oh, here’s a picture of me,” beamed Jim, his face restored to its normal expression at last. " Can you tell me what it is doing in this deserted spot at the end of your album?” 74 THE SENIOR FLICKER " Can’t you see that it is a photograph of the 1936 Stevens ’ Book Re- viewers? Here are Ruth Birdseye, Phyllis Black, Evelyn Stone, Simon Sandler, James Morrow, and you and Bill, besides the members of the 193 5 club.” " Here is one more item. It is about the baseball nine. The outstanding players were Al Larsen, Manuel Pimental, Ted Williams, and John Amero. " Here is our commencement program. Didn’t Tom Bolger and Bob Lundberg do us honor with their speeches? It was a glorious four years, and we were all sorry that night to realize that it was over.” PHYLLIS BLACK ISABEL HASELGARD RUTH BIRDSEYE JAMES E. DROHAN DANIEL RUNKLE JAMES MORROW THE SENIOR FLIGKER 75 One lonely star still glimmers in the heavy sky Far below, a faintly whispered, trembling sigh Speaks of harp-strings torn and tortured as they wind About hope’s weary fingers bravely set to find A single string untouched among those broken strands. At last the blindfold harpist strikes a living chord That rings in all the empty silence like a sword Announcing life and freedom to a conquered race. The starlight glows upon the blinded face. And life’s despairing heart, crushed by pain and wrong, Rouses once more to hope’s triumphant song. JUDITH WONSON. 76 THE SENIOR FLICKER Tke STEVENS TJOOK REVIEWERS 1935 - 1936 ‘Pkoto by Kupsmel THE SENIOR FLICKER 77 The Stevens Book Reviewers Membership in the Stevens’ Book Reviewers is one of the honors most sought after by ambitious students of Gloucester High School. Under the patronage of Mr. George B. Stevens, upon whose co-operation the entire unit is dependent, the Reviewers have, for six years, reviewed for the Sawyer Free Library the latest books. The rules for eligibility are simple but iron-clad. The method of gaining admission is to ask one’s English teacher for the junior year for a recommenda- tion. This recommendation is based upon the applicant’s vocabulary, creative composition, and literary background. The members of the club then elect from the group of applicants, the ten students who have been most highly recommended. Miss Frances H. McGrew of the English department, faculty advisor of the club, manages the borrowing and returning of books. The reviews are printed in the Flash every Saturday night. Members for 193 5-193 6 are: President, Judith Wonson; Vice President, William Publicover; Secretary, James Drohan; Treasurer, James Morrow; Libra- rian, Ruth Birdseye; Phyllis Black; Evelyn Crowell; Helen O’Malley; Evelyn Stone; and Simon Sandler. 78 THE SENIOR FLICKER The Qlee Club The Glee Club, which has been in existence since 1925, is now under the supervision of Miss Helen Curry. The club this year has had a very large mem- bership including girls from the three upper classes. The activities of the club are singing at school assemblies, presenting operettas, and attending music festivals. This year the fest ival will be held at Haverhill, Massachusetts. The club intended to have an operetta, but lack of time prevented its production. The officers of the club are as follows: President — Lillian R se Vice President — Rena Pedroni Secretary — Virginia Parsons Treasurer — Barbara McEwen Librarian — Irma Cividal THE SENIOR FLIGKER 0 ° c ° m e U) «■ H S as.

At the end of this term the seniors who have so ably kept the Flash " ship- shape” will be retired for the year, as their responsibilities and activities are increasing. Undergraduates, next year’s Flash staff, will be trained in prepara- tion for ’36 and ’37. This year, the Gloucester High School Flash completes its sixth year of publication. Founded in 1930 with its aim to deliver clearly and concisely " that which is timely and interesting” to the students of G. H. S., the Flash has developed into the student’s most reliable informant on the diverse activities in both curricular and extra curricular affairs. It has been the custom annually to elect an editor for the year. Last year’s Flash enlarged upon the idea by electing an editorial board of three who divided the weekly responsibility for the issue. This year individual members of the staff have been selected weekly, as they have showed ability to edit the sheet. Two new entertaining columns made their appearance in the Flash this year, " Flashes” and " The Spotlight.” The Flashes are examples of brevity and interesting news, while The Spotlight brings an important personage of the student body into the limelight weekly. This column succeeded " Who’s Who in Gloucester High,” a column devoted to the faculty. Students who enjoy sports may peruse Sportlights, military devotees, Affairs in the R. O. T. C., those seeking latest news in fashion circles, M’Lady Dictates. Those who enjoy good book reviews need only turn to the Stevens’ Book Reviewers’ column. The student derives benefit through reportorial duties on the Flash. Those who have journalistic aspirations receive valuable training and experience in newspaper work, while others learn to shoulder responsibility, write clearly and correctly, and understand the working of a newspaper. 82 THE SENIOR FLICKER Teacher’s Pet Most Musical Most Literary Most Artistic Ideal Senior Boy Ideal Senior Girl Class Chesterfield (your idea of a gentleman) Greatest Warning to Under Classmen Most Dependable Boy Most Dependable Girl Senior Cradle Snatcher Girl who has done most for the school Boy who has done most for the school Most Popular Girl Most Popular Boy Best Looking Girl Best Looking Boy Most Popular Officer Cutest Boy Cutest Girl Most Bashful Most Popular Subject Most Popular Teacher Class Genius Most Successful in Future (Boy) Most Successful in Future (Girl) Class Baby Class Bluffer Class Flirt Class Clown Class Gourmand Best Dressed Best Natured Best Athlete Best Looking Officer Most Versatile Girl Most Versatile Boy Most Original Laziest Senior Class Wit Betty Johnson Priscilla Smith Judith Wonson Emma Gill Teddy Williams Priscilla Wonson William Publicover Forbes Feener Robert Tobey Barbara Howell Alfred Martin Priscilla Smith Teddy Williams Betty Stickney, Lillian Rose Albert Larsen Geraldine Torrie Robert Parsons Albert Larsen Louis Johnson Betty Kinsella Louis Johnson English Miss Harris Phyllis Black, Philip Tartas Thomas Bolger Judith Wonson Lawrence Fredrickson Bert Codinha, Mr. Colman Robert Lundberg Philip Tartas Frank Gomes Faye Chick Raymond Lowe Teddy Williams Robert Lundberg Winifred Silveira Ralph Campbell Emma Gill Daniel Hall Philip Tartas THE SENIOR FLICKER 83 " Now that you’ve finished the Histories, And you start to read the ballot; Don’t say that you’ve heard it before — ’Cause we’ve tried so hard not to tell it!” You might know Jimmie Drohan would pile up the votes to come in second for teacher’s pet; very close at that. Tom Bolger rates third. Never mind, Tommy! Room 20 gets a total of three votes. Simon Sandler’s versatility in the musical line wins him second place. Our capable drum major gets thb ' d place. Good for you, Sandler, and Shel. Mr. Hazel rates votes too, according to the class of ’36. The Stevens’ Book Reviewers furnished the literary talent as James Morrow, Phyllis Black and Helen O’Malley stacked up votes. Campbell stuffs the ballot box making himself answer for votes on this one. Evidently Emma Gill’s artistic creations put her across as the most artistic. Franklyn Hamilton and Fannie Vrachos piled up the votes to come in second and third. Teddy beats ’em all as the ideal senior boy. A knowing individual confides that there is no such animal. The new sensation, Herbert Burns, polled a surprising number of votes. We certainly agree that Priscilla is the ideal senior girl. The same know- ing individual (see above) confides " It’s the one I had a date with last night.” Frederickson, Bolger, Burns, and Larsen are the runners up for class Chesterfield. We note that many girls declared emphatically that there is none! Lufkin, Mitchell, and Lockwood get a few votes for the greatest warning. What is the warning against, we wonder, — knowing too much or too little? Al Larsen and Ray Lowe prove their dependability by stacking votes to come in second and third. Barbara Howell certainly deserves the rating as most dependable. Priscilla Smith, Wini Silveira and Judy Wonson get some votes for rushing around, too. So! Clicky does rob the cradle. Bcb Holloran stacked up the votes too, we observe. Tsk. Tsk. Priscilla Smith, as president of the Girls’ Club seems to have done most for the school. That seems to be an undisputed fact. Wini Silveira and Judy Wonson seem to have done a lot too, according to the Ballot. There was a vote for a member of the world at large, but we won’t print it here. It’s too good! At least, we have many helpful boys in our class — Tobey, Larsen, and Bolger respectively. 84 THE SENIOR PLISKER As both Betty and Lill deserved the title as most popular, the result was a tie vote. Proven — there is justice! As it certainly should be, our class president is the most popular boy. Next in line is Ted. The remaining votes were so scattered that no one else had a show at all. The comeliness of Betty Stickney and Madelyn Selig secured them votes as 2nd and 3rd. " Florence” Fredericksen, an unknown senior, gets five votes. We wonder how such a knockout could have escaped our notice. The next handsomest is Bcb Lundberg. Lewis Palelli’s contagious grin rates him third. As there are two brunette s to one blonde, does this prove that ladies prefer brunettes? Our president’s personality rates him as most popular officer, too. The Colonel is next, closely followed by Ray Lowe, our class good-fellow. Hazel Gillie and Lill Parks are the choice of many as cutest girls. The rest of the vote is scattered — proving — ? A practically unanimous vote gives Louis the honor of being the cutest boy. May we say, " For once, we agree!” Our other Louis is second. As was to be expected, Luigi Johnson’s becoming blush tags him as most bashful. Is it high blcod pressure — or just that he wants to be alone? That woman-killer, Don McCauley, comes in second. In regard to the most popular subject, History came so close that we wonder if it is Miss Burke’s geniality that wins that one, or does that senior class of ours like to dwell in the past? P. S. Someone votes for Hit-pin base- ball. P. S. 2 Someone else votes for recess. The Misses Burke, McGrew, Smith, and McGinley rate next in line as most popular teacher. — And then it is said that women teachers aren’t popular — ! It seems that ties are predominant in our class. There was a tie for 2nd too — Barb Howell and Simon Sandler. Priscilla Smith, Wini Silveira and Barb Howell were tied with 19 votes each for the honor of being the most successful in the future. One of our juvenile-minded Popeye Fans voted for Olive Oyle. Could it possibly be McCuish? Our dashing Colonel came second as the boy most successful in the future. Feener received two votes, but Wimpy and Mr. Colman must be satisfied with one. Nicky Drohan comes in second as class baby. It must have been his squawking in the bleachers! Is it possible that our supposedly nonchalant Frankie Hamilton is voted as 3rd? Hurray! — two of our well-known seniors have at last received recogni- tion — and rightful recognition at that. We simply mean that Federman and McLaughlin are 2nd and 3rd as class bluffer! It seems that a male has captured the honor of being the class flirt for once, but Barb Lane, Gerry Torrie and Edna Handran uphold the feminine THE SENIOR FLI6KER 85 More Power to you with JENNEY AERO GASOLINE |j ALFRED M.

Hartford gets one whole vote as a reward for his efforts. — If you want to know who gave him the vote, consult the Ballot committee. The clever antics of Eddie McKinnon, Ray Lowe, and Nyrrikki Stenberg were the reasons for their ranking as next in line as class clown. Our only girl clown, Thelma Weston, cuts capers, too, the Ballot shows. No wonder the lunch counter profits so! Why shouldn’t it, when Gomesie, the class gourmand, and the other leaders, Priscilla Wonson and Teddy Williams eat so much? Fay Chick also mounts up as class gourmand. Must have been the night of the play Cyrano — " Paris sets the Styles” but so do Faye Chick, Eddie McKinnon and Irene Simmons according to our r eport. P. S. One vote for Forbes Feener (in uniform) . Ray Lowe’s exuberance wins him this one. Al Larsen’s happy grin rates him second as the best natured. Teddy scores the winning touchdown as best athlete. Tucky Holmes kicks the extra point to come in second. It might be Lundberg’s blondness, it might be most anything, but it sure piled the votes high for him in the rank of the best looking officer. (Maybe all the girls voted for was the uniform). Bob Parsons, MacKinnon, and Publicover were the runners-up for this honor. Tom Bolger and Al Larsen come second and third respectively as most versatile boy. Someone voted for Jimmy Drohan — it must be the way he handles the tea-cups! Priscilla Wonson’s varied accomplishments net her second place as the most versatile girl. The rest of the votes we came across makes us wonder if perhaps we should h ave supplied free dictionaries — DEFINE VERSATILITY! The unquestionable originality of Fannie Vrachos and Jeannette Stevens wins them second and third places. After thought — Miss Wolfe received three votes. Bernard Olsen and Federman appear in the dust cloud kicked up by Dan Hall’s triumphant ride to the goal of laziest senior. Violet Frigard receives the doubtful honor of being the only girl voted for. Wilson McCuish and Becky Gray are tied for 2nd as class wit. We won- der if it is necessary to tell you that Tartas, McCuish and Lufkin received several votes for Class Nit-wit!

SCHLAGENHAUF, Director of Admissions BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 88 THE SENIOR FLICKER Scene: Mayor BOLGER’S mansion. Date: April 1, 1956. Event: Reunion of the Class of 1936. The mayor is entertaining his former classmates. The Mayor’s literary wife, the former JUDITH WONSON, whose latest novel, The Mystery of a Misshapen Fish, is a best seller, awaits her company. (By the way, Tom himself, not to be outdone by any woman, has gained certain renown for his own best cellar.) LUNDBERG, the butler, comes in, as usual resplendent in uniform, and in his languid Lanesville drawl announces the guests, who arrive in a gala procession. The Count ’Emout UNO HENDRIKSON enters with his wife, the former chic FAY CHICK who, wears the latest creation of blown-glass, pro- duction of Mile. MADELEINE SELIGE, noted Parisian modiste. The always original FANNIE VRACHOS, famous marine artist of Rock- port drags in by a golden chain the favorites of her harem. The lucky harem- scarems are: RALPH CAMPBELL, HAROLD WOODRUFF, ROBERT HOLLORAN, ROBERT KARCHER, ROBERT EDSON, and JAMES DROHAN. They loll about the room, showing off their unique costumes of purple and orange moire, Fannie’s clan colors. Rumor has it that the Mayor’s indispensable butler will soon become an addition to this harem. Other haremites left at home because of unbecoming behavior are JOHN MITCHELL, who was punished for licking the cream off everyone’s dessert, and LESTER HILTON, who refused to do the supper dishes. Following Fannie and her tribe come Mr. and Mrs. FRANK GOMES, nee JANET CRITCHETT. They are the proud parents of the 195 5 sixtuplets. Mrs. Gomes has on a lovely and indeedie, a very fetchy gown of tearose walnut, studded with chromium knobs. Next comes Senor BERTOLINO CODINHA, internationally famous dis- coverer, who has found that by tipping a soup plate, one may obtain another whole spoonful of soup. On the arm of the Senor is Miss ETHEL STANLEY, renowned mouse surgeon. Miss Stanley is especially lovely in a gown of grated steel asbestos. " Mr. and Mrs. LLOYD DENNIS,” drawls Lundberg. Then enter Lloyd, noted costume designer for the Pigfield Pollies, and his wife, the former BETTY BURNHAM, who is the founder of that wonderful institution, " The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Invalid Pigeons.” Mrs. Dennis is dressed in a gown of vari-colored pigeon feathers which form a billowing sheath-like garment, — very up-to-date and very snappy!

With him is Miss EVELYN CROWELL, secretary of the S. P. C. I. P. She is dressed in the latest gown of woven silver and cheesecloth. Upon the suggestion of His Honor the Mayor, a grand march is formed. The following couples are noted: Miss BETTY JOHNSON, Principal of Gloucester High School, a dutiful daughter who has followed in the footsteps of her father. She is escorted by NYRRIKKI STENBERG, proprietor of that famous night club " Chez Nyrrikki.” VIRGINIA PARSONS, a super Dorothy Dix, who gives sage and valuable counsel to the nation’s lovelorn. She is escorted by FRANCIS POWERS, Heavyweight Boxing Champion of Pigeon Cove. BOB PARSONS, high-pressure salesman of ladies’ hosiery, (and how he sells ’em!), escorting Miss BETTY STICKNEY, coach of the football team at Gloucester High School. HERBERT BURNS, noted bug exterminator, with Miss EDNA HANDRAN, renowned manufacturer of koko-nut kisses. WILLTAM PUBL T COVF.R, proprietor of the Yetteb-ho T Shoppe, es- corting Miss PHYLLIS BLACK, Missionary to the Harlem-ites. AL LARSEN, President of the Class of 1936, and now master of the terpischcrean art, with Miss BETTY KINSELLA, of Kinsella’s chewing gum in the six delicious flavors of orange, cherry, raspberry, lemon, strawberry, and lime. Betty is gowned in a ravishing cellophane creation of Mile. Madeleine Selige, in six colors to advertise her products. JEAN BOUGHTON, famous stage and movie ciueen, wearing a really outstanding gown of purple mousseline de burlappe, with her husband LOUIS JOHNSON, noted reformer and orator of the Senate. (We are glad to find that Mr. Johnson still retains that schoolgirl complexion.) BERNICE STANWOOD, stunt flyer, with hubby LAWRENCE FREDRICKSON, noted coiffeuse. LYMAN ALLEN, local gigolo, with fiancee REBECCA GRAY, captain of the Riverdale Red-skirts Baseball Team. Sir ROBERT TOBEY with Lady BYRCLE CRITTENDEN Tobey. WINFRED ALLEN, local dog catcher, with Miss MARIAN ASHLINE, Ph.D., D.C.L., D.D. FRANCES ALPER, model mannequin, with JAMES AMBROSE, pro- prietor of the Yip-yip Pool Room.

ROBERT MOORING, ticket attendant on a local merry-go-round, in his riding habit. The grand march leads the guests to the dining hall, where Lundberg and his able assistants, ROBERT FINE and HENRY WITHAM, serve a delightful meal prepared by none other than that universally-known chef, JOHN MATHESON. After Reverend JOHN McKINNON has delivered a long and heartfelt prayer, ROBERT PERKINS, master of ceremonies, gives a flourishing welcome to all, and introduces the after dinner speakers, among whom are Miss LILLIAN PARKS, well-known club woman, who gives an enlightening discussion on home management and domesticity. The reunionists next hear HENRY PRADERIO’S humorous presentation of Thanathis. The delightful selection was written and directed by CHARLES CURRIER, gifted New York play- wright. Before adjourning to the reception hall for entertainment, the ’36ers enjoy a brief interlude to renew old acquaintances. During this interval the spotlight encounters JAMES ACKERT and HAZEL FRAZIER holding hands in the corner. Ah! can this be romance! Next is a glimpse of EMMA GILL and her newly-acquired artistic hus- band, ALEXANDER O’HANLEY, whose painting The Fish Without Gills was recently hung in the Louvre. The prying spotlight reveals ROBERT BOSSELMAN and LAURA AHO, interpretive dancers, doing a rhumba on the balcony. Another couple enjoying soft lights and music is CHESTER BRAY and DOROTHY CANTO. Mr. and Mrs. JOSEPH BRENHA (CAROLYN KNOWLES) sit spell- bound, listening to the daring adventures of ANTHONY CHRISTO, cele- brated for his recent daring feat of crossing Mt. Ann on a zebra. The evening’s entertainment opens with a delightful vocal duet, " Snow- Shoes,” sung by PRISCILLA BRENNAN and JOHN ADVEDISIAN. Two popular hoofers, ALBERT ENOS and IRMA CIVIDAL, contribute an intri- cate tap dance. One of the outstanding bits of the evening is an adagio dance by ELLIOT COLLINS, who shows off his manly prowess by throwing around three fair damsels, IRJA ALA, ELLEN KAUPPINEN, and FLORENCE GRAY. Just at the height of this spectacular performance, a terrific crash is heard as BOB HUNT leaps from his seat into Elliot’s arms. Many are amazed at the jealousy on Bob’s part.

His wife, the calm, cool, and collected WINIFRED SILVEIRA, rushes to his side and revives him with her never-failing duckweed drops before Dr. BERNARD OLSON at- tempts to move. To quell the disturbance, the Honorable Mr. Wahoo (FRANKLYN) HAMILTON, owner of the Washington Street Laundry, " We Deal in Dirt,” plays a lullaby on his lute, while his partner, CHARLEE NICOLOSI, croons most soothingly. As a special treat, the Pigfield Pollies give a novelty number. The peppy chorus, led by WILLIAM NEWELL, consists of JOHN AMERO, RALPH MUNROE, LAWRENCE GILLIS, ALBERT JOHNSON, and KENNETH McCURDY. THEODORE WILIAMS’ expressive piano solo, " Dance of the Moon- beams,” is unintentionally (we hope) interrupted by that celebrated foursome of big game hunters, the RICHARD LUFKINS, nee BETTY ANN MCDONALD, and the BARTON KNOWLTONS, nee BARBARA LANE, who have just returned from safari in the West Gloucester jungles. HELEN LANDRY, alert reporter for The Gloucester Gossip, turns on the radio for the news flashes. " Flash! PRISCILLA WONSON, state representative in the National Pie Eating Contest in Virginia, just captured the prize by outeating her nearest opponent seven pies to one!

When asked the motive they replied, " We want to be alone.” " That’s all the news for tonight, folks. This is DAN RUNKLE, telling you it’s ten forty-five, courtesy of the EVELYN CONANT Cuckoo-clock Company.” (Dan, by the way, broadcasts at four-thirty each day as " Uncle Dannie Runkle, the Kiddie’s Delight,” sponsored by the EVERETT ERCOLANI Cleenum Toothpaste Company.) At eleven o’clock, everyone listens to RAY LOWE’S CRA-ZY Hour, sponsored by (ROLAND) " O’BRIEN’S Beef,” and starring SIMON SANDLER and his orchestra. Maestro Sandler is the composer of that original song hit that is taking the country by storm, " The Song Goes Up and Down.” Vocalists on the program are BARBARA HOWELL, blue ribbon jelly maker, and crooner JAMES MORROW, who is the champion hog-caller of Annis- quam. He is so adept at his calling that little pork chops have been known to jump off their plates. Other stars are Mrs. JEANNETTE STEVENS Feather- penny, who tells horrible ghost stories to the children. (She maintains that only naughty children are up at this hour) ; LIL ROSE, that red-hot blues singer; and NORRIE BRUCE, ELEANOR GRONBLAD, and DORIS ENOS, Harmony Sisters who also sing weekly on the " Melody a Minute Hour,” spon- sored by the HELEN and ERNIE NOBLE Kindling Wood Company. Another program of particular interest to the class of ’36 is the amateur hour sponsored by FLYG ARE’S Shoe Polish and Cream Cheese, featuring Big BILL McLAUGHLIN as master of ceremonies. The prize-winning amateurs are WILSON McCUISH, our own Tarzan, doing a 1956 version of Popeye, and Miss IRENE SIMMONS, lyric coloratura soprano. Miss Simmons’ voice rose to great heights after the depression. Other worthy contestants are THERESA TARR, bird warbler, Harmonica HATTIE SAUNDERS, Mono- loguist RUTH KRAMER and WOODROW HUDDER’S one-man band, con- sisting of a wash board, a wash tub, an old alarm clock — and Hudder, (’nuff sed!) At the conclusion of the radio program, Mayor Bolger announces some coming events of importance to the perfect thirty-sixers. " FEDERMAN’S Circus is coming to town, bringing with it the spectacular and charming BARBARA JOHNSON, sword swallower; HAZEL GILLIE, vivacious snake charmer; MARY JOHNSON, bare-back rider; DOROTHY MARSHALL, toe dancer; KAINO NEIMI, the little lady shot through a cannon; GEORGE NUGENT and WILLIAM MOULTON, clowns par excellence, the great PHIL TARTAS, intrepid animal trainer, who argues with defenceless elephants, orates to little rhinoceroses, and plays the harp as a sideline; the celebrated VIOLET FRIGARD, the original woman of the flying trapeze; and EVIE STONE, fair young tightrope walker who has run off with the heart of the dashing animal trainer.

Through his wonderful invention Professor Martin hopes to show in a discreet manner the doings of classmates who were unable to attend the reunion. He first gives a glimpse of the Honeymoon Hotel. We spot LOUIS PALELLI, known as LOUTS XIV, with his fourteenth bride, THELMA WESTON. We note PRISCILLA SMITH, who has given up her brilliant polo playing career to become the fond wife of ROBERT PARNELL, playing a snappy game of tiddledee-winks with hubby. On the porch two other love-birds, FRANK OSIER and ARYILLA SADLER, sit starry-eyed. Who should be coming up the path but PIERCE PARKHURST and VIVIAN VIERRA! Bv their beaming countenances we know they have eloped. The visuascope next takes us to the Reno Relief Bureau, where we see broken-hearted PEARL SARGENT appealing to Judge BUCKY LEMOS for a divorce from hubby PATSY PASCUCCI, who has been seen in the company of HILDA TRAVERS, night club entertainer. The next case is a plea from the much-bandaged ARTELLE CRAWLEY for a divorce from GERTRUDE FRANCIS, charging assault and battery. MELVIN SPIDELL is granted a divorce from his fourth wife, INEZ MITCHELL, because he objects to the dog’s monopoly of his wife’s affections. Many times the wise judge has succeeded in restoring peace. Mr. and Mrs. RALPH O’MALEY, nee LUCILLE MARTIN, were so deeply touched by Judge Lemos’ talk that they immediately became reinstated in love. In- cidentally, Judge Lemos’ wife, the former AMANDA McGRATH, was re- cently given a divorce from her wise hubby because he paid too much attention to the gay divorcees, especially to the very alluring SHIRLEY WARNER. The next scene takes us to the wild and wooly West, to cowboy SHEL- DON KNOWLES’ dude ranch. Such changes we find in our old classmates! Amidst a cloud of dust is WILLIAM VIATOR, riding a buckin’ broncho, while ELLEN KEATING urges him on by using him as target for her shooting practice. From the bunkhouses we hear the Bill Hillies, RUTH HILL, PAULINE HILL, and MURIEL HILSHEY, yodeling for the cattle. Going further west, we come to the Pacific Coast where we find several of Uncle Sam’s sailor boys, JOSEPH SUTHERLAND, GORDON PEW, JOHN TALIADOROS, and DONALD STROPLE, being entertained at the Dime-a-dance by ’Frisco GERT PERRY.

We first look into the palatial Park Avenue estate of CHARLES QUIMBY, well-known cod-liver oil magnate. Mr. and Mrs. Quimby (CHRISTINE OSIER), are enjoying a quiet evening playing bridge with Mr. and Mrs. ALAN HARTWELL RUSSEL, nee OLA SAWLER, peanut vendors of Riverside Drive and Newport. We stop for a few minutes on Fifth Avenue to inspect the Swanky Sleuth Society, an elite detective agency formed by GERTRUDE COFFIN, MARIAN POOL, and MARY BOTELHO. At last we reach a party in Greenwich Village, in the garret-studio of ALFRED PARADY, landscape painter. Among the notables in this bizarre gathering are MARGARET ROGERS, opera singer; DOLOR MARTIN, animated cartoonist, with his fiancee, ISABEL HASELGARD, talented leader of the Rocky Neck Symphony Orchestra; WALLACE WALKER, children’s novelist; ELSIE KLEIMOLA, prima ballerina of the Folly Cove Ballet Russe; THEODORE KORKATTI, prominent Broadway actor, and HAROLD HUDSON, a third Rubinoff. As we leave them all in high spirits, we meet EVELYN THOMPSON, renowned animal sculptress, and FRANK LEWIS, back street singer. Our visuascope gives a jolt and we view the romantic isle of Tahiti at sunset. On the white glimmering sand we catch unawares EDWARD TERRY, clad in a grass skirt, teaching the hula-hula to his favorite pupils, GERALDINE and THELMA ROSE, whom he calls his " little rosebuds.” The Niki-Tahiti Stringed Trio, MARJORIE NICKERSON, GRACE NICHOLS, and CALLIE NICKAS, render a haunting accompaniment to the gyrations. Silhouetted against the moon is glimpsed the nymph-life figure of WOITTO LAINE, battling the foam on a surf board. He is following that agile surf-rider, HELEN WHITE. We leave the tranquillity of the tropics and arrive in the Swiss Alps just in time to see ESTHER PAJARI perform a breath-seizing ski-jump. Miss Pajari, with DORIS SOUZA and PAUL MORTON, is competing for the ski championship in the 195 6 Olympics. In the valley we gaze at the amazing spectacle presented by ETHEL LACEY and STEPHEN IRVING doing a unique version of the Dying Swan. Other prominent figures are EVARETTA OLIVER and ROBERT STORY, dancing the piccolino, and ESTHER HEINONEN and EDWARD LAWSON cutting ice capers. Professor Martin next takes us back to our U. S. A., and carries us to Hollywood where a scene from Romeo and Juliet is being directed by GEORGE LANE. The handsome Romeo (EINO KANGAS) takes a step towards the charming Juliet (MATILDA THOME) and they — bang! We are abruptly brought back to our reunion because the visuascope motor has run dead. We feel chagrined and crestfallen to think we have missed one of the most dramatic scenes in history. Rushing to fix the device are many super-mechanics, among whom are WILLIAM GOODWIN, outstanding piano tuner, ELEANOR BLATCHFORD and GERALDINE McMAHON, plumber and electrician respectively, and ANNA JOHNSON, scissors grinder. All efforts prove fruit- less, so the reunionists transfer their attentions to a strenuous game of Monopoly, a relic of bygone 1936.

Miss McGinley, checking on type- writers: Is there anything the mat- ter with yours, Hamilton? Hamilton: It doesn’t spell correctly. Miss Harris: I beg your pardon, but what is your name? Mooring: Isn’t my name there on my paper? Miss Harris: Yes, that’s what aroused my curiosity. Teacher: As we step out of doors on a cold winter morning, what do we see on every hand? Flygare: Gloves!

Betty K.: I wouldn’t think of going home so early. Helen O.: Neither would I. It was my mother’s idea. President of Automobile Club: Haven’t I run across your face some- time or other? Sandler: No, sir, it’s always been like this. He who laughed last was trying to think of a mean answer. Bob Heckman is becoming round shouldered looking down to Peggy, and she is getting her tonsils sun- burned in the bargain. The feeling must be mutual. Miss Harris is in doubt whether she can talk politics or not, so she looks up her oath. Miss Hammonds: What was the re- sult of Garfield’s assassination? Walker: He died. Are the walls supposed to be sound- proof? Applause for Miss Harris’ stories is heard from the next room. Miss Hammond’s idea of honesty is to have Gomes, Martin, and Drohan sit together and get different marks on their tests. Even though Federman doesn’t al- ways have an intelligent question, he gets a chance to use a new word oc- casionally. Seniors: There’s a bright side to everything. But it’s just an agitation To see the shine upon the suit We’ve worn since graduation. Mr. Fredrickson: Look here, son, you’re going away for a week, and not leaving any wood cut for the house?

Captain Shum to Campbell: Your name? Ralph: Campbell, sir. Captain: Your age? Ralph: Eighteen, sir. Captain: Your rank? Ralph: I know it. What you need is an electric bath. Nothing doing, Doctor — I had an uncle drown that way up in Sing Sing. He: Do you know your dog just bit me? She: What of it? He: Well, they say that when a dog bites you, you have everything that the dog has. She: Well then, you’d better start worrying, she just had nine puppies. Soupy: What a cold I’ve got. History Teacher: What are you taking for it? Soupy: Oh, about five or six hand- kerchiefs a day. Feener: Say, do gooseberries have legs? She: No, why? Feener: Then I must have swallowed a caterpillar. " That’s me all over,” said Lund- berg as he dropped a stick of dynamite. Mr. Parkhurst (to Parnel who was a half hour late) : You should have been in here at eight o’clock. Parnel: Why, what happened? Seniors BEWARE! ! Take out an- nuity insurance as soon as possible, because if you don’t, Miss Smith will haunt you. Mr. Harris (in B. O. Class) : How did you get in here Olsen? The last time I saw you, you were absent. Surgeon (to Forbes Feener) : Go and get the name of the accident victim so we can inform his mother.

WORLD’S LARGEST DISTRIBUTOR OF LOBSTERS 134 THE SENIOR FLICKER " Not the end, but the beginning,” is a fine motto, and yet it is not al- together true. Surely, as we close the covers of this book, we also close a door, gently but firmly, upon a certain phase of our life. The closing of this door means the definite end of childhood, of light-heartedness, and of the friendships that we fondly expect to cherish forever. It is this end that we think of now, although we should remember that the beginning has yet to come. If the thought of the beginning cannot console us, we shall comfort ourselves with the hope that some warmth and light may creep through the crack of the door, and prevent our old friends from forgetting us entirely.
