LOVERING THE SENIOR FLICKER 9 DEDICATION TO Miss Marguerite D. Lovering To a friend whose efficiency for organization accompanied always by unfailing im- partiality and good sportsmanship is valued by us all, we, the Class of 1 937 gratefully dedicate our Flicker 10 THE SENIOR FLICKER FUCKER STAFF 1936 - 1937 THE SENIOR FLICKER PROLOGUE When a book brings pleasure to even one person, its author may justly feel a glow of pride. Whether the pleasure is transitory or lasting is of no consequence, for moments of laughter and happy recollection come all too seldom to most of us. We seniors, whose yearbook this Flicker is, do not anticipate being remembered be- cause of it ; its composition will not assure our place in the annals of the high school. But we enjoy it, and we hope that you also are diverted by it. This Flicker is an integral, personal part of our class. It has been written by us, for us. If our work pleases you we are doubly rewarded, but in any event the thrills of one year and the triumphs of four years are permanently recorded in this, our class-book. So long as we keep our Flickers those experiences are our possessions. And if in a few years our ambitions seem naive and our prophecy ironic in its absurdity, we can not wonder. There are few things in life which are im- mutable. 12 THE SENIOR FLICKER CLASS ROLL Name— BENJAMIN W.

The reason we were there? Why, to hear ourselves tried. Our representative, a bright-eyed young person, had just taken the stand. He looked rather frightened. Who wouldn’t, as our opposers, the upperclassmen, took up the entire front of the courtroom and eyed our representative with hostile and unfriendly eyes. “You, " began the judge, “lowly freshman, are accused by the Sirs Know-it-all Upperclassmen of being a green, lazy, dumb freshman, and are further accused by the above mentioned as not participating in school activities and as not having school spirit. Has the defendant anything to say ? " “Well, your honor, it doesn’t seem to me that the Upperclassmen have much ground upon which to base those accusations. I’m going to prove this to the best of my ability. Please, sir, listen closely and see if you don ' t agree with me. “The freshmen, who had an attractive ‘white elephant’ booth, took an active part in the bazaar. The booth was decorated in red and white, class colors, and made a decided hit with one and all. On the committee were the following: Melba McKay, chairman; Pauline Presson, Jean Brown. Elizabeth Wonson, Dorothy Kennedy, Geraldine Stickney, Taimi Niemi, Constance Pike, Jean Semple, Jean Frances, and Cynthia Crowe. Do you follow me, your honor ? " Judge: “Proceed, proceed! " “The class was well represented in the Roosevelt Trophy Spelling Contest by ‘Polly’ Presson, who besides winning the freshman title and coming in second in the school finals, survived the semi-finals of the Bos- ton Herald Spelling Bee and became ninth grade surburban champion. The others who competed for the freshman Roosevelt Trophy champion- ship are as follows: Margaret Iovanne, Melba McKay, Jean Semple. Mary Gasper, Taimi Niemi, Helen Grover, Gloria Swinson, Priscilla Perry, Frances Emerson, Frank Pascucci, and Lillian Monroe. “Football was another achievement of my classmates who came out in great style for this grand sport. Ernest Marks, Joseph Ciametaro, John Symmonds, Russell Wonson, Robert Madruga, Joseph Souza, Shirley Sampson, Samuel DeCoste, Oscar Rose, David Plolland, Joseph Puglisi, and Thomas Doucette are judged by Coach Ross to be shining prospects for next year. THE SENIOR FLICKER 59 “Our future hoop defenders are the following: ‘Buddy’ Wonson, Jo- seph Souza, Ernest Marks, Tom Tischoff, Lester Tarr, Joseph Puglisi, Robert McNair, Harold Broder, ‘Buddy’ Muniz, and Albert Christo, who have done remarkably well in that strenuous sport, basket ball. “The girls, also, were well represented in sports with Elizabeth Won- son, Ethel Budrow, Melba McKay, and Cynthia Crowe named as out- standing all-round girl athletes. Am I getting anywhere. Judge— I mean, your honor— or am I just talking to myself?” “Go on, go on, you’re disproving their statements very rapidly. If you can disprove all their statements, i’ll fine those ‘Know-it-alls ' $50 for bringing a case into court without sufficient grounds! Silence! (This said as an explosive discord burst from the upperclassmen). I’ll take that back. It’s $100 for contempt of court. Proceed! ' The freshman continued, “The vocal talents of two of our freshmen ; namely, Elinor Frederickson and Betty Finch were heard to advantage in leading roles of the Glee Club operetta. The Mikado. Included in the play was a special boys’ chorus with Tom Tischoff, Ralph Barnard, Chester Wonson, Frank Pascucci, David Graham, Sherman Harriman, Benjamin Nauss, Joseph Orange, James Sofford, and Robert Ray, all of whom are freshmen. ‘‘Then there is the band, your honor. How could the R. O. T. C. march or what would Gloucester High do in May at the Music Festival without the band. The freshman members of the band are Lester Tarr, Elliot Slafsky, Benjamin Nauss, Robert Bruni, William Crowell, John Wicky, Gordon Lowe, and Jack Russ. These same eight also qualified for the Gloucester High School Orchestra.” As the upperclassmen whispered back and forth after hearing this bit of information, the judge frowned over his glasses at them and, turning back to our freshman on the witness stand, said, “Go on, son.” “Well, sir, the past year has brought forth such star reporters on the high school Flash as Melba McKay, Cynthia Crowe, and June Fallon. These three have used their talents on different subjects, and it is known tnat one of the three will permanently take over a prominent column in the Flash next year. “Freshman contributions to the Beacon were made by Elinor Freder- ickson, Phyllis Palmer, Carol Davis, Melba McKay, Jean Brown, and Cynthia Crowe. “The Girls’ Club Orchestra was well provided with musicians, chiefly violinists. Those lending their ability were Theora Haselgard, Jean Brown, and Elinor Frederickson. “Also, your honor, Melba McKay was chosen freshman representative in the Girls 7 Club Cabinet. “Then there is the Athletic Association which is outstanding in our high school. It enables us to see all athletic games on a low-priced basis and helps to support tne school’s sports. Chosen from our class as freshman representative in the A. A. Council was Harold Johnson. And that just about concludes the history of what our class has done. Judge, so I’ve no 60 THE SENIOR FLICKER more to say ’cause I think actions speak louder than words.” “Well, well, well,” said the judge, “you’ve done it, boy, and I’ll stick to my words, too.” Rapping on his desk for silence, the judge declared. “I hereby fine the Sirs Know-it-all Upperclassmen $50 for dragging a case into court without sufficient grounds and also fine them $100 for contempt of court. Case dismissed !” CYNTHIA CROWE ’40 JANE FALLON ’40 assisted by JEAN FRANCES ’40 MELBA McKAY ’40 PAULINE PRESSON ’40 “Good afternoon, friends of the Radio audience. This is station W. G. H. S. broadcasting to you from the ultra-smart gymnasium of G. H. S. To- day we present to you our annual school broadcast in the form of an amateur contest. I am sorry that all you listeners can not be here to enjoy the scenes I am gazing upon. Every seat in the gymnasium is occupied. Every stud- ent is present, bursting with enthusiasm, and chatting gaily. The room is filled with the happy sound of merry, youthful laughter as everyone anxious- ly awaits the opening of the contest. As for the contestants themselves, they are out in the ante-room. Each one can feel his nerves twitch and his spine shiver as he paces the floor in nervous anxiety. “But on with the show ! “For the first number on the program we introduce Coach ‘Nate’ Ross working out the freshman applicants for football. I wish you could see these husky young fellows as they go through their routine. They are Anthony Albert, Walter Murphy, Albert Silveira, Melbourne Mountain, Chester Mc- Neil, Bernard Lawson, William Greenberg, Walter McFarland, Ralph Pi- no, Joseph Curcuru, Lloyd Rose, and Robert Porper. “Now may we introduce to you the chairman of the freshman party, Janet MacLaughlin, with her committee including Lois Newhouse, Mary Cronin, Shirley Crowell, and Jean McPhee. “Do we hear music? The Glee Club is melodiously rendering a snappy tune as a mark of tribute to their officers : President, Dorothy Flygare ; Vice- President, Jean McPhee; Treasurer, Janet MacLaughlin; and Secretary, Jean Fitzpatrick ; and to Lila Johnson, chairman of the Hallowe’en party sponsored by the club. Gloucester High class of ’37 The 60th reunion of the Gloucester High School class of 1937 will be held on Saturday, July 12, at 6:30 p.m., at the Commodore Restaurant in Beverly. Local literary and artistic talents will be featured. All but four members of the class have been located: Sylvia (Corrao) Capillo, Bessie (Menken) Moore, John J. Morton III, and Dorothy Silveria. Anyone who knows of their whereabouts is asked to call Jim Sallah. Of the 227 members of the class, 107 are deceased. All others have been sent invitations to the reunion and are reminded that reservations are due on June 2. Those needing transportation may call any of the following committee members: Ethel Larson Dutton, 283-0701; Geraldine Maclnnis Anderson, 546-2857; Margaret Fosberry, 283-7568; Jim Sallah, 281-1892; or Ellen Friend O’Maley, 283-3783.

We now present to you Lois Newhouse, the Prima Donna of the freshman class, who will sing for you the popular song that she sang in the Beacon play, Pattie. Do we hear taps? Yes, true enough, it is Eva Hepper tapping out her Pattie routine And what a routine ! “Something new ! Something never before seen or heard in an amateur contest. A spelling match ! Harriet Karcher is certainly making the upper- classmen turn pale. Others who are adding to their misery are Olga Smith, Alvin Williams, Melbourne Mountain, Albert Scriven, Richard Kain, and Constance Rich. “While the judges are lining up the next set of contestants, we shall take a trip through the gymnasium. All along the sides are booths of var- ious descriptions arranged for the convenience of the students during these special broadcasts. The one that catches my eye first is the one decorated in baby blue and pink. After a bit of questioning here and there, I learned that the freshmen originated this very novel booth for the Girls’ Club ba- zaar under the supervision of chairman Mary Cronin and her committee : Lois Newhouse, Joanne Hartford, Shirley Crowell, Lila Johnson, and Jean McPhee. “Ah ! I see the judges emerging from the ante-room. One of them has just informed me that the next contribution is a basket ball game to be played by freshman boys: Edward Middleton, William Beeman, Franklin Nelson, John Larson, Anthony Albert, Richard Perry, Ralph Pino, Joseph Curcuru, Joseph Favazza, Robert Porper, and Raymond Freitas. “Just a minute folks, while I investigate the cause of all this stamping of feet. Sorry, my error, it was only the students marking time to the tunes of the band, and right in the front row I see five freshman boys ; namely, Roland Collins, Robert Melnnis, Everett Oakes, Charles Robinson, and Edward Heinonen. “We now have a group of Flash reporters each of whom will give his own impersonation of Walter Winchell. The impersonators are Joanne Hartford, Mary Cronin, Lois Newhouse, Ernest Leavitt, and Melvin Kra- mer. “Before concluding this broadcast I offer you a drama in Latin by freshmen who have attained an “A” grade to gain admission to the Latin Club. The actors are Merle Williamson, William Thanos, Melvin Kramer, Harold Cohen, Irvin Anderson, Priscilla Zager, Eleanore Mattos, Dorothy Flygare, Jean Fitzpatrick, and Priscilla Cole. Now for the surprise of the program : Mary Grogan and Merle Williamson have attained the highest scholastic honor . . . tney win the oawyer Medals. And this, friends of the radio audience, concludes our broadcast for this year. I hope to be with you again at this same time next year. Until then, keep studying 1936 - 1937 “Good afternoon, friends. My but it’s nice to be back again seeing everyone looking so healthy and happy. This time we shall not take time with preliminaries but get right on with the contest. 62 THE SENIOR FLICKER “Some say the first impression is always lasting, so we have arran- ged to make our first number new and different ; something that will leave an impression on you for years to come. We wish to introduce to you the sophomore football, basket ball, and baseball squads who are going to tell you in their own way of their most exciting games in their two years of play. They are football : Anthony Albert, Walter Murphy, Albert Silveria, Melbourne Mountain, Walter McFarland, Ralph Pino, Joseph Curcuru, Lloyd Rose, Robert Porper, Joseph Favazza, and Robert Perry ; basket ball: Edward Middleton, William Beeman, Anthony Albert, John Larson, Richard Perry, Ralph Pino, Joseph Curcuru, and Robert Porper; base- ball: Anthony Albert, Sherman Ruth, Leo Handrahan, and Edward Mid- dleton. “According to the schedule, Virginia Grant and William Thanos, who had leading roles in the Beacon play Forward Pass, were to reproduce the roles for you, but they are still pacing the floor in the ante-room and trying to master enough courage to make their appearance. So while they pace, Dorothy Flygare and Mary Cronin will tell you of the way in which they helped manage the sale of the Beacons. “We now present to you the human dictionary, Harriet Karcher, who has just won the Spelling Match. Ah! listeners, you are mistaken; it is not the same spelling match still going on, hut an entirely new one in which Harriet Karcher emerges the winner with Frederick Mulhaupt, Elizabeth Grover, and Villa Wallace as runners up. Before we go on with the next act I think it appropriate to pause and congratulate Jean McPhee, Mary Grogan, Lois Reeves, Mary Cronin, Pauline Ahola, Mary Farrell, Olivette Bragg, and Elizabeth Brancaleone. “For our next number on the program, the sophomore boys in the hand— Richard Rust, Gilman Lane, Robert Praderio, Robert Homburg, Raymond Brooks, Eino Hendrickson, Freeman Rogers, Robert Powers, Adolph Telles, Robert Wagner, and Preston Dagle — will give you one of their favorite selections. “The sophomores on the Flash — Joanne Plartford, Mary Cronin, Ja- net MacLaughlin, Harold Cohen, Katherine Savage, Stanley McDonald, and Donald Spittle — will now entertain you by telling you about their best scoops of the year. “The girls of the Girls’ Club Orchestra, Estelle Oliver, Betty Cowie, and Winifred Guest, are putting on a number for us and will play one of their best-loved pieces. “To determine the winner of the contest we cordially invite you to send in your vote. “Once again we bid you farewell.

All members of regiment must wear trousers only on drill days. Class History meeting today in Rm. 27. We cease to listen. This last notice serves as an unpleasant warn- ing of the thankless, difficult piece of work before us. Even the date seems significant of what is to come. And so at the close of school we wearily climb the much worn stairs to the room of our imprisonment to let loose some of our surplus brain power. Just for fun, Sarah practices her short- hand by taking notes of the meeting. This is what she has after trans- cribing — Julie, casting a menacing glance towards Jean and Buddy, calls for si- lence. Result — no silence. Undaunted, she tries twice more, and finally success is hers. (Third time never fails). “You know what is expected of us.” she begins. “Now who has any original ideas?” This time silence is not called for, but it reigns never- theless. “Don’t be bashful,” urges the charming chairman. “Well, " Sarah meekly breaks the monotony, “well, here’s something I’ve been thinking of. “My suggestion would be to have it in the form of a military review. First in the parade we could have the clubs and organizations of Glouc- ester High School : 66 THE SENIOR FLICKER Attention ! Pass in Review ! ! Forward March ! ! ! “The band strikes up and the sight we behold is not one that would do the West Point Corps justice. The drummers may have been in E- thiopia, for all that it matters. First we see the class officers marching by the reviewing stand : Ben Parsons, president ; Bud Finegan, vice-pres- ident ; Grace Clark, secretary; Everett Martin, treasurer. “Then Alfred Bruni trots by, not as the president of the Athletic As- sociation would, but like a football player warming up. “Next comes Alary Cortina ‘rhumba-ing’ along as president of the Spanish Club. “Xot to be outdone. Joseph Nelson, president of the Roosevelt Club, and his Rough Riders come galloping past. “Virginia Broder, president of the Art Club, smock and all, marches gracefully by. “Strutting with all the poise of a French model comes Julie Holloran. president of the French Club. “James Lufkin, dressed in Roman toga and sandals, has the honor of being the first president of the Latin Club. “Next, arm in arm, as symbols of sisterly love, come Phyllis Rowley and Anne Davis, presidents of the Service Club and Girls’ Club respect- ively. “With elaborate gestures and a few high ‘C’s’ intermixed with ‘tra- las’, comes Barbara AIcEwen, president of the Glee Club. “Then comes the Flicker staff marching in review under the leadership of Phyllis Rowley, whose ability is equal to the size of the task that she has undertaken. “Now we see the committee including Sophia Yrachos. Frances Wallace. Jean Tarr, and Alary Goyetche, who, under the leadership of Helen B latch- ford, made the A I other- Daughter Banquet one of the most successful e- vents of the senior year. “Alargaret Fosberry, president of the Stevens Book Reviewers, marches by, book in hand, followed by her cohorts Bud Finegan, Julie Holloran, Anne Davis, Phyllis Rowley. Wilma Curtis, Charlie Goodwin, Norm Green, Bert Kupsinel. and Don Cunningham.” Once more silence prevails. Once more silence is broken, this time by , Bud. “I don’t think that is so wonderful. If you have a parade, how can ' you get the Girls’ Club piano by the reviewing stand? Carry it?” “Have you anything better to offer?” asks Julie. “Sure. Have a war between the United States and Japan. A Glouc- ester boy who has graduated with our class is left dying a slow death on 1 the battle field. During his few remaining hours of life, he naturally thinks back on happier days when he was in school. His first thoughts will prob- ably be of drill. He will remember when Bill Smith, Mil Dunn, and Don Cunningham won medals for excellency in the manual of arms; Norm Green’s domineering voice piloting his squad with Bob Burns, Bob Bar- ner, and Ralph Budrow to victory. He will recall his friends Alajor F. i 1 THE SENIOR FLICKER 67 Harrison Poole and First Lieutenant Paul McPherson, Captains of the Corps Area Rifle Team and the ITearst Trophy Team, respectively — and of course, his last Field Day, conducted by Colonel Cunningham, Lieu- tenant-Colonel Finegan, Majors Poole and Green, and Adjutant Smith; the hectic struggle among the five Captains, Brown, Ferreira, Lufkin, Nel- son, and Wood vieing for the coveted Bachelor Trophy. Then he will think of other events which occurred during his high school career.” The poor boy scarcely finished when Jean, who can’t think and listen at the same time and who has been wrapped in her own thoughts, bursts out with this : “We could have one of us falling from a 30-foot window — no, better make it a 60-foot drop — and have his past life flashing through his mind on the drop down.” “No,” Buddy interrupts, “I shouldn’t want my past life printed in the Flicker .” “But, don’t you see,” Jean continues, “We could have one of the girls dropping, and of course, that could bring in her memories of the Tea Dan- ces — when in her freshman year Elisa Kuivanen headed Virginia Broder, Sadie Alves, Anne Banks, Phyllis Rowle y, Jean Tarr, and Sophia Vrachos on the dance committee. Then she will think of her sophomore year, and see Gerry Maclnnis, Barbara McEwen, and Margaret Fosberry, the trio that caused that big success. And in her next vision, she will be looking at Mary Moody and her group of assistants at the Junior Tea — of course, she’ll remember they were Anne Banks, Nathalie Cooke, Anne Davis, Julie Holloran, Phyllis Rowley, and Mildred Silveria. At the Senior Tea Jeanne Rook headed Margaret Fosberry, Margaret Compton, Helen Won- son, and Mary Goyatche.” “I understand,” Julie says, “and then our Doomed Lady will think of the Roosevelt Trophy speeches and recall Libby Collins’s speech on Byrd ' s Flight to the South Pole back in her first year ; and Helena Marchant’s humorous monologue. The Gossipers, in her sophomore year; then, in her third year when the spelling matches replaced the Roosevelt Speeches, Bill Smith as representative to be followed by Anne Davis in this, her last year.” Jean smiles patiently at Julie and says, “That’s it ! And after the Lady finishes with the speeches and spelling matches, she will come to the Saw- yer Medals and remember how in her freshman year Sarah Feldman, Ju- lie Holloran, Gilman Harvey, and George Martin each got one ; and, the following year Grace Clark and James Lufkin won the coveted honor.” " I ' m beginning to like the idea,” shines forth Sarah. “Then she’ll re- member that Medals were given to Hilia Johnson and Robert Burnham as juniors.” Ideas are beginning to spring into everyone’s fertile (or maybe futile) mind. Each is eager to present his idea without considering others. “Yes, that might do,” admirs practical Andy, “but how could a per- son committing suicide think of everything in the short time before he hits the ground. You know that a falling body travels 32 feet the first second, 64 feet the next second, etc.” The doomed members are brought to earth by this amazing discovery. 68 THE SENIOR FLICKER “We can ' t use that,” sighs Julie. Then Andy continues with his contribution. “Leo Grimes is being hanged for disturbing the peace. His neighbors disapproved of his playing- some queer-sounding musical instrument from dusk ' til dawn. It may have been the instrument, or perhaps it was the way he played it. Anyway Leo is being hanged. He ascends the gallows and at the sight of the rhythmic “swing high, swing low” of the fatal noose, his thoughts turn back to his high school days — the era when swingsters prevailed. He remembers the good times he has had playing in the band with Daniel Bloomfield, Fletch- er Brown. Irving Bush, Paul MacDonald, William Natti, Ambrose Or- lando, Robert Powers, and Russell Williams ; then, too, with his contemp- oraries in the orchestra, Harry Andersen, Irving Bush, Elizabeth Collins, Mary Cortina. Bertram Kupsinel, Ambrose Orlando, Olga Rogers, and Russell Williams. This memory scene may also include the Girls ' Club Orchestra, whose senior members were Elizabeth Collins, Mary Cortina, Alberta Richardson, Olga Rogers, and Clara Tibbetts.” “But,” argues Jean, “What’s the difference between your idea and mine? The poor victim in your brainstorm would have the same amount of time as mine to think of his past. Mine’s just as good as yours.” “Yes, that’s right, " intervenes Elisa, who forsees that this controversy will continue indefinitely. “I suggest that it be written in the form of a radio broadcast from station G. LI. S. in Gloucester.” “Elisa Kuivanen !” cried Sarah, “that idea died a natural death years ago.” “Oh, but not this one. For example, how is this for a lead? Charles Goodwin, whose ventures into the stratosphere in 1937 consisted only of journeys of the mind which almost invariably hovered in the spacious re- gions of a drifting fog, has been acclaimed a national hero because of his perfection of that marvelous discovery of picking up on ether waves words spoken centuries before. In experimenting with his discovery he is startle ' ! to hear the unmistakable voice of Miss Lovering, spurring the Flash staff on with one of her famous pep talks. Among the names mentioned we recognize those of John C. Finegan, Elizabeth Collins, Charles Goodwin, Margaret Compton. Julie Holloran, Phyllis Rowley, Gerry Maclnnis, and those of the members on the editorial board — Sophia Yrachos, Margaret Fosberry, Norman Green, and Anne Davis. Miss Lovering continues with words of praise for the senior Flash typists: Sarah Feldman, chairman; Virginia Broder, Mary Bianchi. Dorothy Bartlo, Helen Blatchford, Mary Moody, Mary Dores, Marjorie Chick, Hilia Johnson, Nathalie Cooke, Ellen Friend, and Frances Hinckley. “Now Phyllis Rowley, editor-in-chief of the Beacon of 1936-37, is heard placing the deadline for all Beacon material. This notice is intended for the following, ail of whom have important positions on the school mag- azine staff: Robert Burns. Anne Davis, Ruth Ellis, Margaret Fosberry, Charles Goodwin, Julie Holloran, Harriet Merchant, Sophia Vrachos, and the business staff headed by Harriet Merchant, Margaret Marchant, Harry Andersen, and Nellie Carney. Goodwin hears praise given to Phyllis Row- ley and Charles Goodwin as the Junior class representatives on the Beacon staff and he hears excerpts from articles contributed by Phyllis Rowley, THE SENIOR FLICKER 69 Julie Holloran, Sophia Vrachos, Anne Davis, Elisa Kuivanen, Jean Tarr, Everett Martin, and Wilma Curtis, freshmen. “Suddenly a bell is heard, a bustling in the corridors, and we realize that students are rushing to City Hall for the Senior class play in which Gladys Alper, Jack Brown, Don Cameron, Bert Kupsinel, Wilfred Marks, Joe Nelson, and Sophia Vrachos are displaying their dramatic ability. Many of these same actors took part in the Beacon plays, Pattie and For- ward Pass. These were Jeanne Rook, Lois Greene, Sophia Vrachos, Jack Brown, Wilfred Marks, and James Lufkin.” “That’s the best yet,” cries Julie. “But Charlie is a very good friend of mine and I disagree about his being in a fog.” “Well, we could change Charlie to somebody else,” retorts Elisa. And then Libby, who has been gazing into space during a greater part of the time, brightens up considerably. “Eve got it!” she exclaims. “Why couldn’t we use this? Pretend that some of our class are inspecting the new high school (fifty years from now). On the walls are murals de- picting school life. You could have six of them with this as the general idea : have one of the murals of red-headed Captain Paul Clark, dressed in football togs, holding an honor roll with Charles Abbott, Loring Alves, Don Cameron, Ray Burke, ‘Bud’ Finegan, George Foley, ‘Monk’ Gaspar, ‘Lefty’ McNeil, Donald Pratt, Teddy Watters, Let Williams, and ‘Ducky’ White as members of Coach Ross’s squad.” After a minute’s thought, while the others considered this new brain- storm, Libby continued, “A basket ball mural would be comparatively easy. The three captains are standing shoulder to shoulder (Grillo, Robinson, and Finegan) with Archie MacLeod in a prominent position and ‘Sparky’ Bruni and ‘Monk’ Gaspar forming the background. “Baseball can be handled in the same fashion by changing the back- ground and uniforms so that Finegan, Grillo, and Robinson, our best ath- letes, may be joined by Abbott, Clark, and Watters. “In the track mural Jimmie Lufkin is the center of attraction as he is captain of the team. Do you see what I mean?” No answer! “Perhaps that isn’t such a good idea after all. You would need too many murals. Well—” “Heavens !” sighs Julie, “we’re getting nowhere fast. Eli tell you what we’ll do. Each one go home (his own home), write out what he considers a good history; then pass it in to me on Monday. Ell see which one is best, and call another meeting. You may go now.” So we passed our ideas to Julie, and this is the result. She was like the old lady who lived in a shoe. She had so many histories she didn’t know what to do.

CHRISTOPHER FINEGAN ELIZABETH KUIVANEN ANDREW LANE JEAN TARR 70 THE SENIOR FLICKER THE SENIOR FLICKER 71 Behind the Scenes This year the Gloucester High School Flash completes its seventh year of publication. Since 1930. when the paper was founded, its aim has been to present clearly and precisely “that which is timely and interesting” to the students of G. H. S., and to the people of Gloucester. As a result of the effort of its many reporters, the Flash has developed into the student’s most reliable source of “news” on the diverse activities of all school affairs. Until last year it was the annual custom for the supervisors to select an editor for the year. In 1936 the Flash enlarged upon the idea by select- ing an editorial board of four, the most efficient and capable, who divided the weekly responsibilities. This year individual members of the editorial board have displayed their ability by editing the sheet “single-handed”. The revival of the Mho’s M ho column, which gives an intimate slant on important personages in school, made its appearance in this year’s issues. Students who are keen about sports, eagerly peruse Sportliglits ; military devotees, A fairs in the R. O. T. C .; and fashion enthusiasts, M’Lady Dict- ates... Timely and interesting brevities are found in Flashes, while those who enjoy and seek critical reviews on the latest books need only turn to the Stevens Book Reviewers column. The individual student derives much benefit through reportorial duties on the Flash. Those who really have journalism in mind, receive valuable training and experience in newspaper work, learning all the do’s and don’ts ; while others learn to meet people, shoulder responsibilities, write in a clear, brisk, correct manner and understand the working of a newspaper. The staff for 36-37 has consisted of the following: Editorial Board— Anne Davis, Xorman Green. Margaret Fosberry. and Sophia Vrachos. Reporters— Mary Cameron. Elizabeth Collins. Margaret Compton. Nathalie Cooke. Mary Cronin. Wilma Curtis, Madelyn Doyle J. Christopher Finegan. Julie Holloran. Joanne Hartford, Geraldine Mclnnis. Melba McKay. Madeleine Nugent. Phyl- lis Rowley. Virginia Yibert and Harold Wolozin. Typists— Sarah Feldman, chairman ; Dorothy Bartlo, Mary Bianchi, Helen Blatchford. Virginia Broder. Marjorie Chick. Mary Dores. Ellen Friend. Mary Fudge. Frances Hinckley. Hilia Johnson. Isabel Larsson and Mary Moody. Faculty Supervisors— Miss Marguerite Lovering and Miss Mildred Ingalls. Cub-reporters— Miriam Adasko. Harold Cohen, Elizabeth Cowie. Cyn- thia Crowe, Carol Davis. Jane Fallon. Hubert Fiander. James Jeffery, Stanley MacDonald. Janet MacLaughlin. Florence Mann. Kay Savage. Donald Spittle, and Priscilla Zagers.

Jeanie heads our ballot. Anne Davis and Mary Moody also have devoted admir- ers. The women’s vote gives Bud the margin on those “he-males,” Ben Parsons and Alfred Bruni for the Most Popular Boy. We know Phyllis Rowley is someone’s ideal, but she needs ten more votes to wrest a victory from Anne. Jeanie Rook comes third. Ben and Don Cunningham almost take this one. Skippy and Junior are someone ' s Ideal Senior Boy. It must be the little black notebooks that make Phyl Most Dependable Girl. Miggie Marchant is just two votes behind, and Anne Davis comes third. Someone with insight, we suspect Goodwin, votes for Miss Harris. Reward does come in this life. Don. Lieutenant Colonel Finegan. and Major Green uphold the army’s standard for dependability. Helen’s chic appearance as our Best Dressed Girl is challenged only by June Gorman. Sophia’s knit suits make a hit somewhere. The radicals defeat the conservatives by four votes as Harrison ranks second-Best Dressed Boy. Well, since bright colors, according to Miss Harris, appeal to the “genus infantum”, what is the logical result? Phyllis Rowley, Elisa, and Mary Moody are considered lasses of many talents. But. perhaps, it is Sophia’s “hair-dos” that place her unquestionab- ly as our Most Versatile Girl. Personally we think Bud intimidates the voters. Once again he heads the ticket, but Norm Green and Jack Brown are close behind as the Most Versatile Boy. Jeanie’s wild-rose beauty receives just fifteen more votes than Ruthie Ellis’s dimples and golden locks. Phyllis Reynolds and Anne Banks come third and fourth as the Best Looking Girl Two quiet, retiring gentlemen tied on Best Looking Boy. But beauty can ' t be hidden, you know, and retire as much as they will. Bill, Ben. Nappy Morton, and Poole get the votes. Although twenty others are called cute, their number of votes is so small Jeanie needn’t even consider them. On the list of our blushing violets are Anne Banks and Sophia, believe it or not. Margaret Douglas and Edie Bruce come second and third as Most Bashful Girl. The voters say that our “prexv” and treasurer are concealing their talents. And Jim Lufkin ' s blush is judged a sign worthy of endorsement as Most Bashful Boy. THE SENIOR FLICKER 77 UNIVERSITY College of Liberal Arts Offers a broad program of college subjects serving as a foundation for the understanding of modern culture, social relations, and technical achievement. The purpose of this program is to give the student a lib- eral andi cultural education and a vocational competence which fits him to enter some specific type of useful employment. College of Business Administration Offers a college program with broad and thorough training in the principles of business with specialization in ACCOUNTING, BANK- ING AND FINANCE, or BUSINESS MANAGEMENT. Modern methods of instruction, including lectures, solution of business problems, class discussions, professional talks by business executives, and motion pictures of manufacturing processes, are used. College of Engineering Provides complete college programs in Engineering with professional courses in the field of CIVIL. ' MECHANICAL (WITH DIESEL, AERONAUTICAL and AIR CONDITIONING OPTIONS), ELEC- TRICAL. CHEMICAL. INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING, and EN- GINEERING ADMINISTRATION. General engineering courses are pursued during the freshman year; thus the student need not make a final decision as to the branch of engineering in which he wishes to specialize until the beginning of the sophomore year. Co-operative Plan The Co-operative Plan, which is available to upperclassmen in all courses, provides for a combination of practical industrial experience with classroom instruction. Under this plan the student is able to earn a portion of his school expenses as well as to make business contacts which prove valuable in later years.

Director of Admissions NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 78 THE SENIOR FLICKER Will someone please tell us why Phyl gained, as Girl Most Likely to Succeed in the Future, the biggest majority on the whole ballot? Perhaps if she decides on cooking as her true vocation?, . . .Ask Norm. What, Finegan, you again? Now if you would decide on consuming and you and Phyl would get together, the possibilities are unlimited. Again Ben Parsons and Everett Martin tail you. this time as the Boy Most Likely to Succeed. The verbosity of Mil Dunn, Robert Burns, and Helena Marchant does not quite equal that of Kupsinel. Believe it or not, Archie MacLeod got votes here for Most Argumentative, and for Most Bashful Boy— an example of intelligent voting. Those twin maestros of swing rhythm, Orlando and Bush, follow Leo as Most Musical. Here’s one place neither Bud nor Phyl could inveigle even one vote. Poetry is evidently appreciated, for the second and third Most Literary are Harriet Merchant and Robert Burns. ‘’Monk” Gasper gets one vote. We hate to notice that the originality of Bruni and Dennis is not prized by their classmates. Ruthie’s flair for color and line polls for her the second largest endorse- ment on the entire ballot. Gin Broder, president of the Art Club, comes second. We doubt if many of those in high command will agree that all the seniors indicated on the ballots are Most Businesslike. In a split up vote, Miggie’s sales-man aging proves just a bit more efficient than Gerry Mac- Innis’s handling of banking affairs. Only nine girls and eleven boys have done anything for the class. Phyllis Rowley follows Anne ; and Ben, Bud. There are some seniors who couldn’t survive without Phyl’s helping hand. For a change we have a genius who can’t claim a mathematical mind. And we’ve never discovered that Harriet Merchant and Susan Brancaleone, who come second and third, are particularly adept with figures and formulas. Tarr and Morton have a genius for finding each other which does not go unrewarded. Seniors ! you should be ashamed. So many of you waver in your affect- ions that with an unlucky thirteen apiece, Ruthie and John tie as Most Fickle in Love. Finegan, Cunningham, Green, Ferreira, and Smith can find their names on this list, too. Now, who could have done a thing like that? We are a lazy bunch, but not so lazy as we are fickle. Personally we consider it takes a bit of labor to be fickle, since one’s imagination has to work overtime. Ray Seppala. Janice Robbins, Bill Smith, and Charlie Abbott— if they had worked harder at being lazy— would challenge Alves. Only two girls, Margaret Compton and Betty Knowles, threaten in- THE SENIOR FLICKER 79 Compliments of ESSEX TIRE AND SUPPLY CO.

A few more an- tics and you would have stolen Jack’s place in the ring, (what ring? the circus ring) as Class Clown. As a warning to Helena’s admirers, may we inform you that she ranked third as Class Gourmand. Ambrose Orlando and Bruni also like their food. In fact, the athletes get most of the votes. Bob Connelly, Mr. Colman, and Mr. Greely are our he-man flirts. Mary Moody and Gin Broder come second and third in an enormous field. Susie Brancaleone and Mary Cortina like to worry the books. Most of us don’t even let the books worry us. Will Barbara McEwen’s appealing voice and eyes win her the pro- tection of the male element until she shall reach maturity? Morey comes in third as Class Baby. Margaret Fosberry is the only female with wit, so they say. Bruni and Goodwin pile up votes as Class Wit. We hope Harrison, Norm Green, Andy Lane, and Mil Dunn realize the great responsibility and distinction placed upon them as modern “Sir Walters”. Most girls voted “there ain’t no such animal as Class Chester- field.” Het, Katherine Jacobson, “Smoky” Ala, and Phyllis Rowley lead the bloomer girls. For the last time we write Finegan’s name. We wonder who was his campaign manager. By an overwhelming majority, a true gentleman and scholar is voted the outstanding athlete of his class. Bruni, Grillo, Clark, and Robinson follow him. Anne Davis, our active Girls’ Club president, and the Colonel are naturally among our Most Prominent Seniors. A real surprise ! Phyllis Rowley comes in second as Teachers’ pet. English, the perennial Most Popular Subject, is challenged only by history (due to our love of the romantic past) and trucking. Even log-rolling among the officers didn’t bring Captain Shum to the top. Miss Burke and Miss McGinley hold sway second and third after Miss Harris in the hearts of us Seniors.

Upon her marriage to the count, whose title was the one genuine thing about him. the former ANNE DAVIS had discovered that keeping a small home and a large family on the meager sum of money which her husband dug from Heaven knows where, greatly interfered with maintaining the social stand- ing to which she was accustomed. Her one luxury, the only means by which she was able to follow the adventures of her old friends, was her television-radio. Finding the station she wanted, she sat back to listen to the “news flashes.” The clear, precise tones of the world-famous commentator, BERT KUPSINEL, filled the tiny room. “Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. North America. Tonight, as is our custom, we bring you news and scenes of the world’s great people. Much is happening in this rapidly moving world of ours and tonight is no exception. “First of all, bv means of television, we shall visit an old opera house in New York City where the ‘Modern Circus Designed for the Betterment and Uplifting of Entertainment of the Lower Classes’ is in full sway. It is under the capable direction of Mesdames GERALDINE MacINNIS, BEULAH GOODICK, and ELLEN FRIEND, whose ability in finding and determining the instructive and educational value of the unfortunate creatures, formerly called ‘freaks’ (a term which has been permanently abolished from the vocabularies of those in the service of the owners of this circus), has distinguished them in the world of science, and has caused them to be hailed as leaders of a new and popular humanitarian movement. “It’s a far cry from the circuses of our childhood, ladies and gentle- men. Tonight’s audience is in full evening attire. The seats are spaced at comfortable intervals and are richly cusnioned. Instead of the old-fash- ioned three-ring affair, the acts are to be announced and presented from the stage. “Now the overture is finished and the curtain is raised on the announ- cer, whom I shall now present to you. Ladies and gentlemen of the radio audience, Mr. ALFRED BRUNI !” Amid thunderous applause, the master of ceremonies bowed and began to speak in a charmingly cultured and refined voice. “Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. As it has been definitely establish- ed by the owners of this institution that the long descriptions and aimless patter of announcers are exceptionally annoying and tend to discomfort the audience, I shall introduce to you, without further ado, the first act on this evening’s program. “Our first acrobatic troupe is more than just that.

Anne, eagerly scanning the screen of her television-radio set, easilv recognized her old classmates— SUSANNA BRAXCALEOXE, X ELL IE CARXEY, MARJORIE CHICK. MARTHA CURRY, MADELIXE CURTIS. PRISCILLA JOSEPH. ALICE PARSOXS, AILI PITKAXEX. ARTHUR FEEXER, STANLEY FEEXER. LESLIE McXAIR, WILLIAM MADDIX, RICHARD SKILLEX, ELDRIDGE SPIXXEY. MILTON WILEY, and ROBERT WOLFE. During the musical interval which followed the first act, the television camera was focused on celebrities in the audience. Anne was enthralled to glimpse such famous people as ELIZABETH COLLINS, the great opera star, who had cancelled an important engagement to be present at this gala event, and BARBARA McEWEX. as she was shown amid a group of cinema executives, trying and failing, to maintain her customary expression of boredom with the whole proceeding. Barbara, the cinematic artist, had been forced, because of the recent wave of simplicity in clothes, entertainment, and in fact, in everything in everyday life, which had re- cently swept the country, converting it to conservativeness, to change her name of Jane Smith and, as such, was rapidly reaching the heights of star- dom. As the stage again flashed into view. Mr. Bruni announced. “Miss MARGARET FOSBERRY, the dancing sensation of the year, in the ‘Dance of the Dying Seagull’ !’’ Anne watched the beautiful gyrations of the dancer and, before the clipped tones of BERT KUPSIXEL interrupted, was able to pick out of the supporting chorus, the following girls who had attended G. H. S. ; HESTER ANDERSON. GLADYS COMIXELLI, GRACE ENOS, GLADYS GEARY, FRANCES HINCKLEY, BARBARA KEHOE, CHARLOTTE LEAVITT, PAULINE SLOAN. CLARA TIBBETTS. VIVIAN TIMM. DOROTHY TODD. FRANCES WALLACE, and ELLEN WEBBER. That scene was abruptly erased from the screen and Anne again heard the voice of the announcer. “And now. ladies and gentlemen, we shall take you to the Golden- guilt home on Park Avenue where the most important social gathering of the year is taking place. This home, the most awe-inspiring and pretentious of its kind was decorated, ’tis said, by Mrs. Goldenguilt herself ! There she is now, greeting her guests.” Anne was thrilled to see, acting as the hostess in this mansion, the former ANNE BANKS. At the moment, she was greeting her guests of honor. Mr. and Mrs. ALBERT ROBINSON. Mr. ROBINSON had recently achieved fame by writing a complete book of high school education in 30 pages.

As the butler announced the next guest, Anne was amazed to recognize, behind his stiff, formal manner, PAUL CLARK. She then looked sharply at the maid who could be seen in the background taking wraps and, suddenly, recognition came to her and she immediately knew RLTH ELLIS. “Well,” she thought, “It ' s funny what people turn out to be !” Before the scene was shifted, a bit of the entertainment was shown and Anne saw. in the celebrated trio known as “The Syncopated Songsters,” her old classmates DANIEL HALL. JAMES LUFKIN, and CHARLES McLOUD. The voice of Bert Kupsinel, the announcer, again interrupted. “Yom New York correspondent will now take you to the Miami Biltmore Hotel where we see a famous society wedding in progress.

Following closely behind him are the Grave Diggers of 1950. HELEN BLATCHFORD, MARY MOODY, SHIRLEY CAHOON, NATALIE COOKE, and MARGARET MARCHANT. “The last stragglers are now coming up the gang-plank. Panting and puffing away, comes BENJAMIN PARSONS. Air. Parsons is that world- known chef who broadcasts recipes for beginning housewives. “Then comes that famous dancing team, ‘The Hefty Hoofers.’ It consists of GEORGE MOREY and MILDRED SILYERIA. Late as usual we note LUCILLE SA ETT, mannequin from Filene’s, who is going to Paris to see the latest styles, so she says. “Your reporter bids them all bon voyage and hopes they may have smooth sailing.” Air. Kupsinel next turned the program over to Larry Nosit. the comedian of announcers, who took his audience to Washington, D. C., where he proceeded to entertain his audience at the expense of the various celebrities. Air, Nosit was the only person in radio who was able to “rib” famous people without making enemies. “You perhaps have noticed while I was moistening my tongue with a little ginger-ale that today happens to be January 24. which means only one thing — the inauguration of our new President, Archibald Gustavus “Filthy” McNasty. Therefore, if you, my faithful listeners, will twirl your dials, I shall endeavor to convey to you some idea of what it is all about. “This long expanse of cracked pavement which we see before us is Pennsylvania Avenue, which we can note leads to that dilapidated grey shack which is to be the home of President McNasty for the next four years. Hurrah, here comes the parade! Yes, indeedy, those are the Boy Scouts (they have been sent to substitute for the American Legion which is attending a tea given by the First Lady) who are leading the parade. Closely following the two Boy Scouts is the President’s car. The chauffeur is JOE SUTHERLAND, and seated beside the haughty Joseph, the stooge and footman a la president. BILL SUTHERLAND. In the rumble seat is President McNasty and Senator DONALD PRATT of Alassa- chusetts who was elected over LESLIE WILLIAMS by the Class of 1945 of G. H. S. (they are all old enough to vote) because of his past fame as a Rossonian. “That beautiful bouquet of celery you see in the President’s car was donated by Air. ERNEST ROSE, celebrated florist, from his wonderful window box garden. The shabbily dressed nut running around behind the President’s car picking up cigar butts, I recognize as MILNER DUNN. “I really should mention that that lone spectator leaning against the hydrant is EVERELL HARDING, winner of the Amateur Photograph- THE SENIOR FLICKER 89 Compliments of J.

I bet he feels silly watching this mess all alone. Hats off ! Here come the colors. On each side of Old Glory are the color guards, ROBERT BARNER and RELAX D RYAAL both of the 5th Marine Regiment. In close order follow RICHARD BULDUC, Mayor of ‘Little Portugal’ that new republic which sprung up on the South Shore of Cape Ann; Commander FLETCHER BROWX. executive officer of the Coast Guard Cutter ‘Floating Cork’ that swings at anchor on the Potomac and F. HARRISON " POOLE, the Commandant of the West Point Cadets “Overhead we see Squadron 8-M of the United States Fleet Marine force. Aircraft 2. I am told that Captain WILLIAM E. SMITH is in the leading plane. Speaking of leading. MANUAL SOUZA is waving the baton under the noses of that great band, which he inherited from his uncle, the late John Phillip Sousa. As I take a gander about, I believe I actually see representatives of the Law in the persons of GEORGE FOLEY anc PAUL McPHERSOA " , members of the Department of Justice. Federa! Bureau of Investigation — (G-men to you). . . . “In concluding this brief summary of the inauguration. I must not fail to mention that riding on the fender of the Presidential car is Colonel JOHN ‘NAPPY’ MORTON, president of the new Southern Confederacy. The South seceded because the North refused to accept ‘mint julep’ as the national beverage, maintaining that tonic was much easier to ask for. “Now for you sport-lovers, let us dial Palm Beach in Florida and take in the Water Carnival there . . . “Back in May, PAUL MacDONALD called together a committee to plan this annual Water Carnival. Even then they decided that this year’s carnival should be different from the previous ones. “The committee is headed by FRANK FERREIRA, assisted by ROLAND MACIEL. HARRY LeYIE is in charge of the judges and events. The music, both the records and the orchestra, is under the man- aging hand of LEO GRIMES. To GEORGE NUGENT falls the task of planning the supper which will follow. George is now running his fa- ther’s farm, and has already won fame for the excellent menus he prepares for fattening his pigs. ALBERT SMITH has been in charge of producing decorative adornments to hide the stands which have been constructed for the benefit of the spectators. Looking about me, I find that Mr. Smith has done an excellent piece of decorating, which just goes to show how a course in Manual Arts stays with one . . . “W eaving in and out of the gailv colored umbrellas are the fair wait- resses. MARY CAMERON, JEAN TARR, IRENE SANDERSON, and HELEN WONSON, serving Coco Cola to the thirsty spectators. “That big salute of fireworks officially opens the W ater Carnival, and FRED OSIER is giving a few words of welcome. The actual events have started with a canoe-tilting contest. The real battle will be between ROBERT BURX " HAM, cook on the gill-netter ‘Virginia and Joan’, and ‘Manslaughter’ BILL SIBLEY, who is fishing on his own. In close order THE SENIOR FLICKER 91 92 THE SENIOR FLICKER will follow the balloon race, and then the free style for ladies, in which event PRISCILLA KIPPEN is the outstanding entry. MILTON CAMILLE, FRANK MILES, JIM SALAH, and DONALD STROPLE will give a diving exhibition. “While the water events are taking place I’ll acquaint you with the most prominent of the spectators. That tall, dark, and handsome fellow seated on the edge of the pool washing his feet is none other than ROB- ERT S. BURNS, that super-suave, sophisticated, romantic lover and man-of-the-world. Many a fair damsel has left a penny arcade with high blood pressure and an empty purse after witnessing one of his perfect love scenes. The gentleman with the long white beard who is pestering that pros- perous looking clerk at the hot-dog stand is EDWARD HENDRICKSON. Ed has been wandering around looking for advertisements for the 1937 Flicker. His graduation from G. H. S. has been postponed for the past 13 years so he can obtain enough advertisements to receive the Beacon free for two years. “Among the literati present are Sir JOSEPH NELSON, adventurer, soldier, and author — his latest book being Ink Spots on the Moon; SHER- WOOD PARKS, author and lecturer on world economic affairs — his greatest contribution to the book worms is Projit and Loss, which gives the financial reckoning for the girl who knows how to step out (the whole story can be summarized as $ .00) ; and PHIL RAYCROFT, author of the year’s best seller, Phil will-will Phil? “Many great educators are present; namely, CHESTER WARD, Professor of Mathematics at John Hophead’s University, where he has been delving into the mysteries of Goniometrv for the past 8 years ; SILYARIO GASPER, youthful poet and athlete, and for the past three years a Rhodes scholar; RICHARD ‘SKIP’ LUFKIN, distinguished paleontologist renowned for his fossil discoveries, (I think Paleontology is some kind of a sandwich spread) ; and BERNARD COWIE, renowned psychologist and professor at the ‘Boobv Hatch.’ “The judges of the day are RUDOLPH KARTONEN, expert on the theatre and regular contributor to Esquire; CHARLES ABBOTT, world champion figure skater at the Olympics ; and DANA CRICHETT. hockey star of the Bruins. “That group of men wading in the shallow part of the pool represent some of our greatest inventors. Reading from left to right they are PAUL GRAHAM, famous as the inventor of a preventative for ‘Yellow Stain ' — Gloves; ROBERT PERKINS, who perfected a marvelous machine which removes the tobacco cakes from old pipes and prepares them for the table; and HARRY ANDERSON, who invented the, a-the, a-the,— Telephone. Also present is GILMAN HARVEY, who recently returned from Siberia, where he has spent the last few years in exile. It seems that he actually violated the Labor Laws by forcing his men to work more than four hours a day. “Deary me — I almost forgot RAT BURKE. Ray is now a noted explorer and expert on snake charming. The crowd is so hungry that they THE SENIOR FLICKER 93 For Dependable Personal Service INSURE WITH .

Camera! Action! So to work on this stupendous bit of non- sense backed by Dizzy Brothers, and starring RUSSELL LUCAS, the matinee idol of ‘femmes’ the world over, as the heh-hehing villain, and EDITPI BRUCE, Hollywood’s own Cornell, as a one-horse town ingenue. “Moving on into the cutting room, we glimpse Professor WILLI AIM NATTI, Ph. D. mourning the burlesque of his famous reform novel. De- velopment of Character in a One Street-Light Town. He is considering writing another reform novel in order to console his old cronies, GEORGE OLIVER and THEODORE WATTERS, as well as himself. “Far away in South America, Cardinal WILFRED MARKS an- nounces his intentions of censoring Love, Learn, and Live in a Fishtown. Just a moment, folks, and we’ll bring him right into your living room. Ah, here he is, giving his weekly lecture, ‘Indeed, films so endangering to public morale necessitate censoring, and ’. Now Wilfie, we knew you when .” Returning, via the television, to the East, Mr. Kupsinel invited his audience to an ultra-ultra fashion show. “While viewing Park Avenue in New York, folks, let’s take a look into the ‘Gini and Jaki’ Fashion Salon. Thousands of the elite are in atten- dance to witness Dame Fashion’s latest whims as presented by VIRGIN- IA BRODER and JACK BROWN, French coutouriers, who recently middle-aisled it. “On with the show ! The velvet curtain slowly rises to show lovely JUNE GORMAN, foremost mannequin, modelling a white, draped and shirred chiffon evening gown, which defies criticism. Striking SARAH FELDMAN appears as a study in scarlet, followed by attractive JAN- ICE ROBBINS and HARRIET MERCHANT who are attired in the demands of Palm Beach — grosgrain bathing suits. “Intermission, folks, and the chance to look about and see who has arrived.

Ah, yes. We take you to VALMA ALA’S Dance and Spaghetti Joint on Tenth Avenue in the country’s greatest metropolis, New York City. Here we are in the establishment itself. Whom do we see upon the stage leading the orchestra but ABBOT COOK, who is the latest Gift of the Magi to people who do not appreciate good music. ALICE AMERO, VIRGINIA ANDERSON, and BETTY BOWES are attempt- ing to vocalize Toivo Tuomivirta’s immortal masterpiece, Minnie the Moocher, while those two masters of mutilated rhythm, IRVING BUSH and AMBROSE ORLANDO, are browbeating out of their saxophones a reluctant wailing which, to the unprejudiced ear, might sound like The Music Goes ’ Round and ’Round. And so do LAURA FAY, MURIEL HILSHY, KATHERINE JACOBSON, and HILIA JOHNSON as they pluck their bass viol strings in the van of the orchestra.” The music stops as joyfully as it began, and, oddly enough, Anne heard no applause. ARLENE CLANCY, the pianist par excellence, sighed and wiped away a tear of perspiration as she absorbed a pint of RILEY AD- AMS’ guaranteed Cocoa Cooler, and then the announcer took up his task again : “Now our misled maestro raises his baton. Amid silence and boos, out from the wings lopes our eminent and beloved violin tamer, John Christo- pher Finegan. The distinguished Mr. Finegan has just returned from the Siberian wilderness, where he and his troup of incompetents have been grad- ually driving the superstitious Russian peasants mad with their music, which is said to be in a class by itself. Mr. Finegan is now playing Chichonia, accompanied by several members of his troup, namely PHYLLIS BROWN, who is trying to help matters by singing the piece in the obsolete American torch-song manner, and DOROTHY BURKE, THERESA CANILLAS, ELEANOR CARRE1RO, RUTH CHOATE, CAROLYN CLARK, and SYLVIA CARRAO, who are all attacking, as valiantly, as hopelessly, the Russian hallet. Please do not turn your television set off, this will be over in a few short minutes. “Now, while Finegan continues to torment the soul, let us look around and see what celebrities are sitting at the tables adjacent to the dance floor and near the stage.

Ethel and Paul- ine are now engaged at New York’s Entertainment Hall DeLuxe, managed by RICHARD LANE. Roger is now trying to disengage himself from an overdose of tangled spaghetti, with the aid of two of the most charming attendants. MARY DORES and BETTY EL WELL. They are trying to cut him loose with meat axes. Whoops— there goes one of his ears. “Can you see BARBARA MARSHALL. BESSIE MENKEN, and RLTH MITCHELL at that table across the floor trying to mangle some of Valina’s famous chili concarne ? Oh, yes, I almost forgot to tell you that Barbara is now down to her last million as a result of spending all her spare cash to see RAYMOND SEPPALA, the latest heartbreaker of Hollywood, Broadway, and Bond Street. I understand that Bessie and Ruth have a ducky little flat in Greenwich Village, and that they spend their spare time playing billiards with the new champion, WILLIAM STANWOOD. “Ah. the lights are dimmed, the spot comes on. and out of the wings, tripping lightly but gracefully, comes Valma’s pride and main attraction, PHYLLIS (GOGO) ROW LEY. Don’t be surprised, listeners, if you notice a change in Phyllis’ accent ; it’s something she developed at Y r elles- ley. She is now singing IRVIN (BERLIN) BUSH’S latest number. The Fish Mans Swing. As you yourselves can plainly see, this piece is distinctly in its own class. “Now Miss Rowley finishes her debut in this most distinguished joint, and retires off stage amid a barrage of milk bottle stoppers and French heels. “What ' s all that noise near the entrance? Why, gracious me. it’s Val- ma’s bouncer, DONALD CUNNINGHAM, dressed up like a Siamese war- lord. It is rumored that this is the same uniform that he wore in high school, but Don is pretty touchy on the subject. He is having a little trouble with five young ladies, who are all, apparently, more than a little interested in the gay, dashing young Lochinvar. Armed with a meat ax, a hammer, Don’s saber, a milk bottle, and an antique hat pin. the girls, who are endeavoring to impress their presence upon Donnie in one wav or another, are PHYL- LIS SPATES. DOROTHY STANWOOD, PHYLLIS TOBY.

ALICE OL- SON, ESTHER PUTAANSU, ALBERTA RICHARDSON, and MA- RY SARGENT, charge defiantly out upon the stage amidst the cheers and howls of the spectators, who seem to regard themselves as opponents. The girls have no regard for the orchestra ; they simply push the potential swing- sters from the stage with less than no ado, and go into their act. “And now, my friends, with this last glimpse of rambunctious hilarity, let us bid our once fellow-classmates adieu, and travel on.” W’ith this final scene, Mr. Kupsinel bade his audience good-night, and THE SENIOR FLICKER 99 Compliments of ■ Oaiioll Out Rate ■ ■ 137 MAIN STREET ■ ■ GLOUCESTER jj NEVER KNOWINGLY UNDERSOLD M MllllllllllllMllllllllllllllllllllllllllillllllllllllllllllW Compliments of Sullivan ' s Barker Drug Store PERFUMER Gortorfs Gorton-Pew Fisheries Co Ltd.

Halitosis is better than no breath at all ? 3. Girls certainly do regret losing their youth — unless they find another soon? 4. A patrol wagon is a poor substi- tute for an auto, but it does all right in a pinch ? 5. There are two kinds of people on earth today. Just two kinds of people, no more I say? The two kinds of people on earth I mean Are the people who LIFT and those who LEAN. Wherever you go you will find the earth’s masses Are always divided into just two classes. 6. A mule cannot pull while he is kicking and he cannot kick while he is pulling? Neither can anv one of us !

Yet since leave-takings are likely to be sentimental, per- haps reserve is a saving grace. One is loathe to loose one’s grasp on familiar things and hesitant to venture on strange ways. And if we must now say “farewell,” we can later greet our classmates with the easy friend- liness which comes from mutual recollection of former associations. “We have, you know, many goodly days to see.” THE SENIOR FLICKER 135 136 THE SENIOR FLICKER THE SENIOR FLICKER 137 in.
