Phyl comes in as hlost Popular with Jean
Holmes and Jackie Darcy not very far behind her
in second and third places respectively. Oh Colonel,
my Colonel! Colonel Malone steals honors as our
Most Popular boy. Our president and basketball
captain, however, aren't too far behind.
Lola Black's effective posters win her first place
as Most Artistic. Jessie Vieira and Marilyn Silveira
come in a close second and third. Steve Patil wins
almost unanimously as Most Artistic, with Gerald
Silveira and Charlie Perkins trailing along in sec-
ond and third place.
Bette Hall our super-secretary wins honors as
Most Practical with no apparent effort. However,
Jean Holmes runs a good second with Marie Ellery
coming in third only one vote behind Jean. Danny
Davis, our Lt. Colonel, takes the honors as our
Most Practical boy with Jimmy Mellow and Dave
Lane next in line.
Ah-Romance! Fran Eldridge, Phyl Douglas
and Ruth Bicknell ran neck-and-neck until the last
stretch. In the finals, however, Fran beat, with
Phyl close at her heels and Ruthie bringing up the
rear. Ralph KNelson Eddyj Loweheads the list
as our Most Romantic boy. Could it be that thrill-
ing voice that influenced the votes? Oh, here's
our Colonel again, holding down second romantic
position. Us he, Phyl?J In third place is East
Gl0ucestcr's own Ed Klotz.
Gert Fosberry is our lVIost Agreeable gal.
fWas that a masculine hand that added "And
how!" after Gert's name?j Also very agreeable
are Jackie and Phyl Douglas. Jimmy lllellow wins
the spot as Most Agreeable boy. Gerald, third place

The Relican Muesum,
2206 Hanging Lip Falls,
Noo Yorrk, N. Y.
June ll, 5944.
As you know, during the past four years, I have been excavating among the ruins of
what was once presumably a High School near the prehistoric city of what-was-thenfcalled
Gloucester. Among said ruins, I stumbled on a musty, rather odorous, old document which
I think is valuable enough for presentation to your museum. Evidently a history of some
ancient class, it is a manuscript about which I can truthfully say, basing nv convictions
on my many years of travel and experience, is the most unusual and unique history I have
ever encountered. As you examine the tattered pages you will find that these unusual
people possessed a rare sense of humor which manifested itself in rather dubious ways. A
perusal of its contents, however, should provide not a few moments of factual pleasure.
Trusting that this small contribution will shed valuable light on these aborigines
and their habits, I remain as always
R. 0. T. C.
By some strange coincidence, the class of '44 was
outstanding in military affairs. During our sophomore
year, the first drill that found the class represented was
the Guard Mount which included J. Day, E. Alves, W.
Edson, W. Gibson, C. Kopanon, R. Lowe, R. Bruee, M.
Cooney, D. Davis, J. Pimental, and G. Silveira. Although
it was three days before Silveira found out that the
Guard Mount was a drill and not a horse, each member
covered himself with glory. At the following party, a
crack R. O. T. C. band prize squad, assisted by J. Day
and R. Clark marched off with the honors, much to the
chagrin of the regiment. Then, adding to his previous
successes, R. Clark took third place in the Haskell drill
on Field Day. At the same time, D. fRobert Jordanj
Lane was awarded the sophomore medal for military excel-
lence, and lanky B.' fDaniel Boonej Malone took the
award for rifle marksmanship.
With this conspicuous record in mind, our class
promptly stepped out on the wrong foot to further its
laurels. At the second party of our junior year, E. Lar-
kin and B. Malone captured third and second places
respectively in the manual of arms. J. Pimental, the "Vic
Mature of the Tuckersize", substituting for E. McKay,
scored an amazing upset by winning hrst placeg and it
was not until a week later that Jerome realized what had
happened. Then W. Edson scored by leading a snappy
Co. B prize squad to victory over squads led by such
military geniuses as J. Day, E. Alves, B. Malone, R.
Lowe, and G. Silveira. Afternote: Silveira, in disgust,
changed the name of his group to prize scrod. During
the course of the classic Field Day exercises, Alves won
the coveted first prize, Malone squeezed into second place,
and Lowe, by some mistake, "Sinatraeyezed" into third
place. Also, Mellow extinguished himself by anticipating
commands. On the same memorable day B. Malone,
staggering under a chestload of medals, added another
marksmanship award, assisted by E. MeKay.
After the exit of the senior oflicers, B. Malone was
appointed "chief cook and bottle washer", with D. Davis
second in command. Majors Lane, Cooney, and McKay
presided over the companies led by Clark, Day, Alves,
Mellow, Lowe, Goodiek, and Bowen. Silveira, Kerepka,
Curley, Brennan, Taliadoros, MeKeehnie, Pimental, Dono-
van, Parker, Anderson and Broad supervised the pla-
toons, while Corkum, Bouehie, and Bruee were assigned
to the staffs. Captain W. Edson was regimental adjutant.
Except for two momentary liourishes when they
stretched their creaky joints and waved their rusty sabers,
Your obedient servant,
Elmer J. Fossilius
the officers were content to rest upon their laurels and so
pass into history.
THE GLEE CLUBS
The Glee Club activities of the senior class were very
outstanding, even if we do make the statement ourselves.
Although it was not until our second year that we really
got rolling, the ,class of '44 produced a wide assortment
of Nelson Eddys and Grace Moores Qno relation of Miss
E. F. Moorel. At our first Christmas concert presenta-
tion, Ralph Lowe, Jr. warbled incoherently while Irene
McCollum cluttered up the chorus. Then after a five
months' pause in which the Gloucester audiences recuper-
ated, certain members of the class again dared to partici-
pate in an opus by Gilbert and Sullivan, called "Trial
by jury." Ralph Lowe, Jr. appeared as the usher Cmean-
ing, of course, his role in the productionj, and such class
beauties as Eleanor Karvellas, William Edson, Christopher
Kopanon, and Irene McCollum found, or rather, lost their
places in the chorus. During that memorable year, Ralph
Lowe, Jr. also represented the class by singing with the
famed Apollo Club of Boston in Symphony Hall. fDid I
say memorable?-Perhaps we should forget iti.
Our Junior Christmas concert saw new talent con-
sisting of Mary Baker, Dorothy Tarr, Jean Cogswell,
Ruth Bicknell, Lois Ireland, Dorothy Dagle, Louise Selig,
and appearing with the old ones, R. L., I. M., E. K. and
Yehudi. It was in this year, also, that the class won its
most outstanding honors in the field of music through the
grand production, "Erminie". In this opus, Ralph Lowe,
Jr. hard on the heals of his comic success in "Trial by
Jury" followed through in the humorous role of Ra-
vennes. Irene McCollum was given the feminine lead as
the beautiful and talented Erminie. David Lane appeared
as a Louis XIV period "Frank Sinatra"g Ruth Bicknell
played a very sweet village girlg James Brennan was a
dashing "non-com"g and Rirhard Hunte scored as Msr.
Des Nailes. Franees Eldridge and Robert Low lent a'
supporting hand in the orchestra.. At the Spring Music
Festival, Ralph Lowe, Jr. and "Lennie" Lea! brought
honor to the class by receiving ratings of "Superior" and
"Good" respectively, for their solo numbers.
The Senior Christmas concert soloists were many,
including Jean Cogswell, Ruth Bicknell, Irene McCollum,
Ralph Lowe, Jr., Dorothy Tarr, and Rosalie Doutette.
Instead of resting on their laurels, the class of '44 exited
in a blaze of glory and triumph with the Spring concert
featuring "Americana" and the Music Festival finding
"Superior" ratings prevalent.
P. S. Frankie Sinatra only rated "Fair."
STEVENS BOOK REVIEWERS
The class of '44 was well represented in this de-
partment. Although G. Silveira and J. Mellow psycho-
analyzed themselves into membership during their junior
year, most of the others, to wit: M. Ellery, D. Lane, M.
Cooney, R. Lowe and S. Andrew: were admitted as
seniors. In the course of the year, teas were held at the
homes of various members, and after three meetings
M. lillery was finally able to balance a tea cup according
to the best Silfveirian etiquette. Feature of one of the
meetings was l.owe'.t running narrative of Scheherezade
until it tripped over Min Harris' gag.
During the year, punctuated by sensational publicity
ranging from wolf calls to Frankie Sinatra, two highly
successful book reviews were held in which the nation's
best-sellers were mutilated. But after the smoke had
cleared, the library found itself richer by several excel-
lent books, because of which the entire senior class, ex-
cluding the already inflated capacity of G. S., expanded
For four long years now, many of us have been
hearing about that memorable classe de francais which
convened somewhere in the vicinity of room 120. "Daddy"
Cooney was the star pupil, and donated generously to the
Rosen Red Cross approximately 53,50 per annum.
One of the most impressionistic visions engraved
upon our memoirs is that of J. Mellow trying to psycho-
analyze those great French philosophers, about which we
know something, we hope. L. Cox furnished an infinite
source of amusement bargaining with Daddy for 'just one
more dime'. Shall we ever forget S. George trying to
force a stubborn tongue to recite a resume, and F. El-
dridge wrangling to top Monsieur Rosen's puns? Ah,
those were joyous hours! Remember Sarah Ann pleading
with us to say 'say' instead of 'sez'? Laud and honor go
to Jeuie Vic-fra who, had she not been faithful to her
text books, would have prevented those shining A's which
some of us received. lWhich some?lg and to Margie
Best and Ev Mernik without whose laughs our corn
would not have flourished!
A toast to Mr. Rosen, and Vive la Classe!!
GIRLS' VICTORY CORPS
The Victory Corps Drill Team originated during our
junior year in G.H.S. It was composed of girls who
successfuly outfianked their competitors in gym classes
and almost immediately after its founding was taken
under the wing of Sgt. Tucker. Gruelling rehearsals,
leaving the female regiment breathless and fiat footed,
proved successful in making a platoon whose every com-
mand was carried out with exact precision. lAlso suc-
cessful in slimming hip and waist lines., Its first demon-
stration was at the second Officer's party of '43, when 27
girls under the Leadership of Min Savage, amazed and
won reserved admiration of the many spectators at the
party. Following this were two street parades, again show-
ing the girls immaculate in their white pleated skirts and
white blouses with red accessories. The second of these
parades was on Field Day of that same year when each
girl proudly marched with the platoon in front of the
R.O.T.C. Regiment. A position, in their estimation, of
great honor. 1944 saw only six of the senior girls left on
the drill team. They were: Lt. Eleanor Karsvellar, Sgls.
Louise Selig, and Midge Green, and Pvtr. Beverly Black,
Ruth Bicknell, and Nancy Clark. Drilling at the second
party was becoming an annual affair as we Hstrutted
our stuff" for the second consecutive year. Again we
brought the house down, drilling even better than the
previous year. In the future yet to come the Victory
Corps Drill Team can and will prove itself colorful and
indispensable to the military of G.H.S.
Hit pin has proved itself a favorite afternoon sport
with boys as well as girls during our four years in high
school. Our senior year especially has been a happy one
as far as the game is concerned. It has been a battle of
the sexes in the gym with the officers of the R. O. T. C.
versus the more athletic senior girls. On the male team,
who incidentally did not always win, Da-ve Lane, Ralph
Lowe, Cooney, Brennan, Bouchie, Alves, Edson, Davis,
and others displayed great talent in booting with their
left foot. Among the gentler sex we observed L. Cox,
Black, Plunkett, Green, Kar-vellar, N. Clark, Haines,
Bicknell, and S. Andrews, and S. George, who also
could handle a ball and who gave the boys a good run
for their money.
At the annual class election, the 'fvox populi" popped
overwhelmingly in favor of Dud Cooney, popular and
versatile senior. Bob "Throttlebottom" Malone fwhat
againl was the choice for Vice-President. Jimmy Mellow
was our treasurer, so that's what hapened to the treasury.
We found the perfect secretary to be Jean Holmes.
We were justly proud of Jim Mellow who represented
us when he was elected Vice-President of the Eastern
Massachusetts Scholastic Press Association,
In january of that fateful year of '44 the silent
streets of Gloucester suddenly became animated as a
gathering of laughing students joyfully pranced into what
was to be their new haven, after tussles with homework
were finished. It was that celebrated location, the Youth
Center. Prominent in this group was Marie Ellery,
chairman of the practically non-existent general commit-
tee. After one of those Ellery pep-talks, we donned our
old clothes and diligently attempted to wash those dingy
walls, through which Gerald promised us we'd soon see
our refiections. We scrubbed floors, washed windows and
walls, sand-papered chairs, tore down shelves, and ham-
mered nails. Leroy Spittal was particularly helpful, and
with the aid of some paint and some co-operative shop-
boys, the two rooms were rejuvenated.
It seemed that we carried all the dirt with us as we
left after working hours to drop into Teddy's for that
Ah, those were the days! To think, that after all
these years, remains of the Youth Center may still be
SENIOR TEA DANCE
The Senior Tea Dance, held on December 9, 1943
was a dignified and pleasant affair. Sponsored by the
Senior girls, the preparations were made by the different
homeroom representatives acting as a committee. Even
though Leap Year .was a month away, fin typical
Gloucester stylel the boys were invited by the girls.

In Crime Sensation of Year, Cooney Acquitted
Judge D. K. Davis, Flabbergasted, Adinonishes Jury
GLOUCESTER, June 25, 1959-Coming
unexpectedly at promptly 3:10 A.M. this
morning, the jury of the now nationally
famous Cooney murder trial announced the
decision of that body to acquit Matthew
Cooney, prominent citizen of this city and
president of the G.H.S. class of '44, of all
charges brought upon him. Judge D. K.
Davis of the district court, flabbergasted
over the attitude of the jury and specta-
tors who cheered upon hearing the verdict,
held everybody present in contempt of
court and fined each 10 dollars. tHe later
stated that this would soothe his injured
Cooney, who has been in police custody
since last month, was overjoyed at his re-
lease but again asserted his innocence over
the recent charges brought to bear upon
him. Mrs. Ezra E. Horseface, the former
Miss Beverly Black of this city, who
charged Cooney with the murder, bravely
held the tears back until leaving the court-
room but since then has issued a state-
ment to the press which reads in part:
"I hereby charge Cooney, Judge Davis, the
entire jury, district- attorney Richard
Clark, police captain H. Joseph, and every-
body else who had any connection with the
trial with fraud, perjury, attempt to slan-
der, and also I am suing each for 50
thousand dollars with which I hope to
spend the coming winter in Florida."
Mrs, Horseface, the former Miss Black,
was the first witness and answered sol-
emnly all questions asked her by her at-
torney R. Bouchie. The questioning pro-
ceeded as follows:
Bouchie: Did you find the body of Polly
Mrs. Horseface: Yes, I did.
Bouchie: Describe in your own words
the condition in which you found the
Mrs. I-Iorseface: Polly was lying across
the floor with her neck twisted. There
was also blood on her neck.
Bouchie: What relation was Polly to
Mrs. Horseface: fBreaking downj My
baby, my own little baby. Boo-hoo.
Bouchie: What makes you think that
cruel-hearted Cooney killed Polly?
Mrs. Horseface: Well, he is my next door
neighbor and I have often heard him
Bouchie: What reasons did he give?
Mrs. Horseface: He always complained
Polly was noisy and would bite him on
the nose when he would sleep on his
Bouchie: When did this dreadful thing
Mrs. I-Iorseface: The first day of last
month. I was upstairs when I heard the
scream and Polly cry, "Help, help! Keep
away from me Cooney!" Boo-hoo.
fMrs. Horseface here collapsed from grief
and was carried from the stand.J'
No other witnesses were called as Steve
Patil, the clerk of court, fell asleep. He
was fined 75 dollars for contempt of court
by Judge Davis.
The final speech delivered by defense
attorney Alves was what is believed by all
informed sources to have been the de-
termining factor in the not-guilty decision
of the jury. Alves' eloquence brought tears
to the jury of eleven women and one
unidentified man. believed to be Jack
Day. Alves ended his speech with words
that are destined to become as immortal
as those of Daniel Webster. He said:
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, how
can people of such intelligence as you
think of any verdict other than not guilty?
Look at Matthew Cooney! fCooney, by the
way, sat blushing throughout the trial.j
Those honest, sincere features! Here is a
person who has never done a dishonesty
in his life, a person who has never been
late for any engagement in his life!
Matthew Cooney has always been the per-
fect gentleman, the perfect friend with
whom you could trust your last two bits.
Is he capable of murder? I say NO! And
if YOU do, you may accept this pass
which will entitle you to a lobster dinner
at the Cooney home next Saturday and a
check for 100 dollars. All free-no 'box
tops, no strings attached, Just mark the
little word NO on your ballot. It is the
duty of your sacred honor and your patri-
otism to do this. Will you betray your
country by convicting this man? I think
the answer is NO! I thank you."
This brought cheers from the jury.
Judge Davis fined Alves 50 dollars for
such a statement, but it is primarily
believed Davis did this because he had not
been invited to the lobster dinner. The
jury retired with these brave words of
Alves ringing in its ears and deliberated
until three o'clock this morning, thereby
getting in seven and one-half hours of
When asked what she would do in the
future, Mrs. Horseface, the former Miss
Black, stated that while she would miss
Polly terribly, she knew the dandiest pet
shop where she could get another parrot.
Anyway, she was counting on her trip to
Florida to let her forget this past month

sive soirees. Acclaimed as one of America's

Desiree Eldridge, the film beauty, for-
merely of Gloucester, is now appearing
at the North Shore Theatre in the greatly
publicized motion picture, "The Lighted
Candle." Miss Eldridge is a graduate of
Gloucester High School, in the Class of
'44. Incidentally the picture in which she
is starring was adapted from a novel
written expressly for her by Gregory
Randolph, formerly Ralph H. Lowe, Jr.,
a graduate of the same class.
Miss Jessie Vieira, well-known author
of children's books, was the guest speaker
at a recent high school assembly. Miss

culties which took place on the set.
Scheduled to appear at the Guild
Theater is Gerald Silveira's greatly ac-
claimed drama, "Era." The drama, which
is in reality an experiment that is com-
parable to the plays of the late Eugene
0'Neil, utilizes a chorus, ballet se uences,
and a symphonic orchestra, as welll as the
usual dramatic actors and actresses. In
charge of the extravagant ballet sequences
is Richard Hunte, who has become famous
as the director of the Metropolitan 0pera's
Corps de Ballet. Mr. Silveira will per-
sonally direct the staging and lighting
which is extremely difficult.
MAYOR LAYS CORNER
STONE OF NEW
GLOUCESTER, June 25, 1959. Mayor
Robert Malone today laid the corner stone
of the new 21st National Bank of Glouces-
ter while crowds cheered him on and Miss
Jean Holmes, first woman bank president
in the country. spoke to the noisy throng
of "The Importance of the Penny Bank
in the Home." Mayor Malone was assisted
in his task by Edwin McKay, who mixed
Malone was first given a box of valuables
to place in the corner stone and with due
ceremony sealed the box for posterity. The
seal, however, had to be broken as Mayor
Malone had left his hat in the hollow of
the corner stone. The ceremony was per-
formed again with equal pomp only after
Mr. McKay rushed to his hardware store
for more cement. In the meantime Miss
Holmes finished her speech but was neg-
lected by the mayor in all the confusion
and was pushed down into the crowd.
Mayor Malone then began one of his
nationally known speeches which lasted
four and one-half hours. During the last
hour light had to be supplied to the mayor
so that he might finish reading his
speech. Though little could be understood
from the context of the speech, it is be-
lieved he will offer himself as a candidate
for the presidency in opposition to Roose-
velt in the coming election. He has an-
nounced that his slogan will bc "No
It was interesting to note the three
people who stayed until Mayor Malone had
completed his speech. One was Donald
Greel, who fell asleep on a bench. The
other two were Eleanor Karvellas and
Phyllis Douglas, who sold pop corn.
TO 'ROTARY CLUB
Dr. David J. Lane, eminent toxicologist
was the main speaker at a meeting of the
Rotary Club held last Monday. Dr. Lane
recently returned from a sojourn in Brazil
where he did research work on various
jungle poisons. In reviewing his adventures
in South America, Dr. Lane stated that
he had brought back with him valuable
information on poisons about which very
little was previously known. He cited
his research on Leimar, a very powerful
drug that is very beneficial to people with
heart diseases. Last month Dr. Lane was
awarded the Steichen Medical Prize which
will enable him to carry on even greater
work in his field. Referring to the award,
the well known doctor, stated that he in-
tended to carry on his research and that
he expected to leave for Africa very

Ed: Write back in a thousand years.
In a recent address to the Freudian So-
ciety of New York, Dr. James R. Mellow.
eminent psychiatrist, claimed that man is
approaching virtual insanity due to the
ever increasing complications and worries
which are being forced upon him by a
progressive world. "Insanity in the Middle
Ages never reached the proportions that
are known today," Dr. Mellow stated,
"Man in those supposedly dark years
never had to worry if the gas was turned
off, if the garage door was locked, or if
his supply of oil would last. As a result
of this, the per cent of insanity was much
smaller. With the world progressing at its
present rate, the day is not too distant
when man will be born insane into an
insane world." Dr. Mellow advocated that
definite steps should be taken to reduce
the causes for nervous tension. I-Ie said
that "decreasing wars and increasing va-
cations would be definite aids."
