THE FLICKER 1954 PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS GLOUCESTER HIGH SCHOOL GLOUCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS SAWYER FREE LIBRARY GLOUCESTER, MA 01030 s 1(S " She’s aye, aye sae blythe, sae gay, She’s aye so blythe and cheerie; She’s aye sae bonnie, blythe and gay, O gin I were her dearie!” Many years ago, Robert Burns wrote these lovely lines to a sweet and gracious High- land lady. Now, we the class of 1954, dedicate our effort, though its memory be more fleeting, to one whose charm and graciousness rival that of the Scottish lassie of long ago. To Rachel H. Pressey, " so blythe and cherrie”, the Flicker of 1954 is sincerely and affec- tionately dedicated. 2 TO THE CLASS OF 1954 A job half done is a waste of time, and a lesson half learned is a wanton shame. Graduation is not a period, but a comma. Many of you will not again enter a for- mal classroom, but all of you will continue your education. Education is, in a way, a series of experiences which result in change, and so it is a process which continues from, and is based upon, the solid foundation you have built in your twelve years of school, so that it will be true and square rather than fumbling. Build upon what you know to be sound, and you will build well. May we who have worked with you for four years congratulate you upon your past accomplishments, and welcome you to the new opportunities your graduation will re- veal. If we can help you further, we will feel it a privilege. Good luck in all that you undertake. Arthur N. Smith, Principal Congratulations and best wishes to the members of the Class of 1954. I trust that the years you have spent at Gloucester High School have been happy as well as profitable years for you. Your school will be keenly interested in watching your progress after you leave us. Make us proud of you. Sincerely, J. Stanley Thompson Vice-Principal FACULTY First row: Beatrice H.

" This is a grand day, ladies and gentlemen, posi- tively a grand day! The sun is high in the blue Glou- cester sky, a gentle breeze is bringing us the fragrance of the ocean, and we are here to witness the parade of an outstanding class at G. H. S., the parade of the class of ’55. Much we have heard about the accomplishments of these students, and now we’ll be able to see with our own eves . . . and here they come, ladies and gentlemen, in full-color with the beat of drums and the flare of trumpets! Foremost in the parade we notice the right and left guides, Miss Burnham and Mr. Malone, who are flanking the officers: Lincoln Higgins, president; Bruno Modica, vice president; Sally Marshall, secre- tary; John Morris, treasurer. In second order of the march come the members of the new Student Council, who are even now planning on new systems to im- prove the standards of the students. This honor squad is made up of Kathryn Thomas, Lincoln Higgins, Ronald Mello and John Morris. And now the body of the parade unfolds in all its magnificence. The first company is composed of students outstanding in scholarship. It is a glitter- ing group; scholarship comes first in importance in the education of young minds. Here and there we see the latest winners. Avis Murray and Thomas Spittle, who last year were awarded Sawyer medals; Sally Marshall, who was recipient of the Latin book prize and the A.A.T.F. French award; Roger Davis, carry- ing with him the Spanish book prize. The newly- elected members of the National Honor Society are with this group also: Joan DeMarco, Ellen Egan, Mary Haskins, Nancy Hempel, Judy Hoffer, Torrey Gamage, Sylvia Lane, Sally Marshall, Peter Anastas, and Lincoln Higgins. Marching a little distractedly and out of line, here come the class poets headed by Elaine Gendreau, who rated first prize in last year’s Jeremy Ingalls poetry contest, and Gail Beverley and Louisa Matson, worthy of honorable mention. Ooops! We almost missed our artist, Sylvia Lane, winner of the Art book prize, who is now capturing the color of the parade in her sketch book. While we are still dazed from the passing of the first company, a second and perhaps larger group is fast approaching us. This is the company of extra- curricular activities, a very necessary one, for educa- tion is not complete without the application of ability and initiative in worthwhile activities. Many are the Juniors who parade before us now; some are veteran leaders, well known to all. Among the new ones we spot the officers of Latin Club; Sally Marshall, president; Torrey Gamage, secretary; Nata- lie Pinto, treasurer. In the French Club Jackie Dauph- inee is secretary while in the Pro-Con Club new officers are Robert Stephenson, vice president, and Elaine Gendreau, secretary. Robert Stephenson is also the vice president of the Art Club while Sylvia Lane keeps accounts. Kay Somers, popular among the girls, was elected vice president of the Girls ' Club. A wave of dramatic talent now hits us as Sylvia Lane, Gerald Epstein, and Robert Hubbard go by, reminding us of our fine entertainment from Our Town. And what are these men rushing about for? Oh, we see; they are the athletes of our class. " A sound mind in a healthy body” is their glorious and indeed " sound” motto; and now a wild cheer fills the air as Carlo LaFata and James Winchester go for a long pass before our very eyes, followed by Sherman Anderton and Edmund Nasser, basketball stars, and by Paul Fiahlo and George Frigard, outstanding hoc- key players. Now the parade assumes a definitely military and orderly formation; thumping feet hit the ground at even intervals: army uniforms and M-l rifles appear. It ' s the Gloucester High School R.O.T.C. unit, fine trainer in leadership discipline. Scores of Juniors have distinguished themselves in the regi- ment; foremost are Peter Anastas, Kilby Gove, and Bruno Modica, who have earned stripes of platoon sergeants. Philip Coull placed second while Kilby Gove placed third in the individual drill this season. Junior girls also are associated with this group, for Judy Hoffer, Barbara Main, Avis Murray, and Chris- tine Rogers are sharp shooters in the girls’ Rifle Team. Parading before us now are the literary geniuses of the class. The Stevens Book Reviewers are first. Sally Marshall is the secretary; other members are Peter Anastas, Jackie Dauphinee, Anne Davis, Ellen Egan, Mary Haskins, and Nancy Hempel. The school’s magazine, the " Beacon,” has for efficient junior editors Gail Beverley, Ellen Egan, Torrey Gamage, Peter Anastas, and Bruno Modica. Outstanding reporters for the Flash are — oh, how do you do Mr. Tony Lovasco and Mr. Gerald Epstein — what do we think of the parade — why we think — wait! a moment please! we are doing the reporting right now — what, will we join you in the parade? Why not? — Sally Marshall Anthony Lovasco Bruno Modica 49 CLASS OF 1956 OFFICERS Roberta L. Silva. Treasurer; Brien B. Kennedy, Pres- ident; Noteen M. Greely, Secretary.

We have not been outstanding in any one thing; but if you will take a good look at the following activities, you will find that we have more than done our part to make 1953-54 season an active and successful one. Let’s start out with the Latin Club. The members of our class who have participated in the activities are Paul Alper, Hilda Bernstein, Noreen Greely, Eileen McCue, Doris McCuish, Doreen Pinto, Miriam Robinson, and Ruth Ojantakanen. The Beacon has been putting out wonderful editions; and although the only sophomores on the staff are Miriam Robinson, Sophomore Editor, and Peter Wood, the Beacon has hopes of a much larger staff next year. Now, for our football players. Four of our classmates who received their letters this year are Tony Marino, Russell Tupper, John Clayton, and Don Enos. Many of our sophomores have distinguished themselves this year, and we hope will continue to do so for two more years. John Clayton displayed outstanding skill in the Swampscott game where he scored a touchdown. Tony Marino and Russell Tupper were great on defensive the last four games, and Don Enos starred in the Jamboree. He also played a tenacious game at defense in the Newburyport game. Of course, as there were others who worked hard for our victories, we’ll run down the list: Bob Rose, Bob Morrissey, David Smith, Allen Hagstrom, Tony Palazola, Tony Ma- rino, Russell Tupper, Jimmy Hanrahan, John Clayton, Don Enos, and Bernie Silva. Have you ever wished you could sail a boat? On brisk autumn days, you must have wanted to. Well, there are many sophomores this year who got that urge, and followed through on it. The following is a list of the people who enjoy rigging sails and doing the usual bit of work that is expected of them in G.H.S. Sailing Club, and have fun, too: Doreen Pinto, Cynthia MacDonald, Doris MacCuish, Carla Johnson, Marilyn Karvellas, Helen Schwartz, Judy Shoares, Hilda Bernstein, Marilyn Greely. We have only one sophomore who wished to venture from the times of today into the annuals of the past to join the History Club, and that one is Laszlo Kubinyi. Next year we hope that more will take an interest in this particular club. Congratulations are due those who are successful enough to merit a membership in the Honor Business Club. Of the many who present themselves at the meet- ings, the following are sophomores: Antoinette Grillo, Marcia Harvey, Bettyjane Brennan, Rose Ciaramataro, Sylvia Frade, Sandra Smith, Nancy White, Ardrith Parady, Sarah Brown, Joseph Lovasco, Josephine Lafata, Audrey Walters, Janice Reed, Rita Wilson, Judith Belanger, Kath- leen Marr, Sheila Ryan, Marilyn Munroe, Carol Knowles, Josephine Lopiccolo, and Salvatore Randazza. Expressions such as Como esta? are heard frequently during a meeting of the Spanish Club. Not only is Spanish spoken, but the talks and activities deal, in some way, with Spain or a Spanish background. Those repre- senting the class of ’56 are: Rita Wilson, Jacqueline Stone, Sheila Cavanaugh, Lois Purdy, Dianne Griffin, Anthony Malquais, Bettyjane Brennan, and Sally Graham. As more students have taken an interest in the lan- guage department, it is not surprising that many have joined the German Club. If you happened to pass a room that was giving forth strange noises, you would probably find the following sophomore members practicing their grammar: Marilyn Bruni, Laszlo Kubinyi, Roberta Silva, Peter Frederick, Carla Johnson, Doreen Pinto, and James Feener. If any of you like to play checkers or chess, it is a good idea to join the Chess Club. There is not only an opportunity to learn the game, if you do not know it, but also to improve on what you already have learned. Those who took advantage of learning are: Donna Norwood, Virginia Cooper, Robert Matz, Marietta Perry, and David Pearsall. Many other sophomores have been taking an active part in different clubs of G.H.S. Writing for the Flash are: Cynthia MacDonald, Sally Erwin, Hilda Bernstein, Helen Schwartz, Judith Amero, Marilyn Karvellas, Paul Alper, and Marilyn Bruni. Congratulations go to the girls who have been accepted in the Girls’ Glee Club. They are as follows: Cynthia MacDonald, Marilyn Karvellas, Lois Purdy, Patricia Wood- man, Miriam Robinson, Marilyn Hoffer, Roberta Silva, Noreen Greely, Gail Webber, Doris MacCuish, Pamela Taylor, Ardrith Parady, Anne Eames, and Susan Betts. Those who have earned the honor of being members of the French Clubs are as follows: Hilda Bernstein, Dana Ginn, Carla Johnson, Paul Cook, Marcia Harvey, David Arnold, Sylvia Flannagan, Sylvia Frade, and Kathleen Marr. Now the Stage Crew members come from behind the scenes to take a bow: David Martin, Paul Alper, Paul Frazier, David Murphy, Anthony Malaquias, and Robert Rose. Distinguishing themselves as members of the Boys’ Rifle Team are: Peter Wood, Fred O’Dea, Robert Parker, Robert Davis, Freeman Selig, and Dana Ginn. Certain boys deserve praise for being chosen as cor- porals in the R.O.T.C. They are Charles Francis, David Pearsall, Dana Ginn, David Arnold, Paul Frazier, Donald Whilton, David McKay, Stephen Cluett, John Giacalone, Anthony Malaquias, Sidney Marchant, and Freeman Selig. A big hand should be given to the members of the Art Club. They are as follows: Nancy Knowles and Laszlo Kubinyi. Here’s the cue for the members of the Dramatic Club to make their appearance; they are as follows: Hilda Bernstein, Susan Betts, Gail Webber, Judith Chane, and Cynthia MacDonald. Those who took part in the National Thespian Soci- ety ' s play " Our Town” were as follows: Susan Betts, Pamela Taylor, Gail Webber, and Natalie Young. In the newly organized G.H.S. Girls’ Club many sophomore girls are members and are taking an active part in the activities. The Camera Club also claims some sophomores as members. They are Patricia Rogers, Joy Johnson, Mary Rowe, Judy Silva, Carol Enos, Beverly Noble, and Ruth Williams. The girls accepted on the Girls’ Drill Team deserve congratulations. They are Dianne Griffin, Marilyn Kar- vellas, Patricia Rogers, Carol Souza, Nancy Roark, and Mary Curcuru. Our Student Council members are Sheila Ryan, Judy Chane, Noreen Greely, and David Murphy. In closing, we, the class of ’56 salute the class of ’54 and wish them smooth sailing in the future.

We are referred to by the upper classmen as " kids”, " monsters” and " scrubs " , among other things. Actually, though, we ' re not such a bad lot as some of the juniors and seniors seem to think. Among the outstanding members of our class are: The recipients of the Sawyer Medals in ' 53, Frances Blick, Frank Chick, Lois Fortado, Townley Gamage, Jon Hagstrom, Billie Ann Jensen, Ronald Lane, John Olsen, Jr., Cyn- thia Parsons, Dianne Smith, and Raymond Welch. D. A. R. awards were presented to David Bloomberg and Jon Hagstrom. Special Commendation goes to Lois Fortado and John Olsen for winning highest honors. " Frosh " representatives for the Student Council during ’53-’54 are Anthony Berto- lino and Billie Ann Jensen. Here is the roster of freshmen who have helped our school this year by participat- ing in school clubs and organizations: Our contributor to the BEACON was Susan Taylor. Language Clubs: German: Jocelyn Hanson, Diane Lawson, Marcia Town. Latin: Jack Babson, Jill Babson, Frances Blick, Doris MacNeil, Margaret Randazza, and Susan Taylor. Chess Club: Jack Babson, David Bloomberg, and John Flanagan.

Sailing Club: Barbara Burgess, Susan Pitkanen, Judy Brown, Jocelyn Hanson, Brenda Thomas, Jill Babson, Townley Gamage, Sandra Mitchell, Doris Stevens, David Bloomberg, and Doris MacNeill. The Football team wouldn’t have been the same without such freshmen stars as Fred Thompson, Jay Parisi, and Kirk Corliss, who in rain or shine faithfully carried half pails of water to the team. (The other half was usually spilled on the way out). Then comes the freshman football team boasting as large a group of characters as you should ever hope to see. Some of the more illustrious players are as follows: L.E. — Tommy Bouchie and Carl Wall, L.G. — Paul Niemi, L.T. — John Connors, C. — Ronald Lane, R.T. — Russell Feener, R.G. — Eddie Parks, R.E. — Harry Aptt and Carl Wall, L.H.B. — " Boots” Parsons, R.H.B. — Larry Harding, Q.B. — Jon Hagstrom, F.B. — Jim Mondello and Bobby Anderson. We now give to you the comments about the team from a person to person survey of the coaches. Assistant Coach " Bob” Malone " Mr. Karcher’s well-coached freshman team looks to be one of the most promising group of players to enter G. H. S. in a few years. With a lot of hard work and deter- mination they could be one of the finest football teams to pass through the portals of Gloucester High.” Head Coach Ross " It was the best freshman team in our school since 1938. It had balance, poise, and a great amount of interest and determination. I expect a lot of these boys to fit into varsity competiton next year to gain experience. Furthermore, as seasoned football players during their junior and senior years they will earn a lot of prestige for their school and themselves.” So we have hopes! Members of the basketball team are: Larry Harding, Sebastian Linquata, Charles Pis- citello, Jon Hagstrom, Thomas Lupo, Anthony Nicastro, Jim Mondello. Larry Harding was our top scorer! Members of the hockey team are: Dick Gerring, Skip Ross, Lenney Woodman, Pete Burns, Bobby Andersen, Pat Schrafft, and Jack Babson. And thus the freshmen have begun their journey through G. H. S.

When they finished, they were on the short end of a 28 to 20 ball game played at Manning Bowl under the lights. The only light shining as far as the Fishermen were concerned was Frank Destino who, with his flashing speed tallied for the three Gloucester touch- downs. NEWBUBYPORT 26 GLOUCESTER 40 Gloucester, still on the road and again playing under the lights, took on the favored Newburyport " Clippers”. At the half, Gloucester led 13-6. New- buryport recovered in the second half to take the lead 19-13, but the " Fishermen” were not to be denied and exploded for 21 points in the fourth quarter to overwhelm the " Clippers " Bob Greer received the game ball. SWAMPSCOTT 14 GLOUCESTER 24 In their first home game of the 1953 season Gloucester outplayed a well-drilled Swampscott club 24-14. The main reason for this win was Bob Pas- cucci. He broke through the forward wall of the " Sculpins " time after time making the backs fumble. Frank Destino scored two touchdowns with Bob Blatchford and Jack Clayton adding one apiece. Bill Ryan was give n the game ball. MARBLEHEAD 12 GLOUCESTER 13 These two class " B " king pins were rated even going into the game and, as the score shows, came out fairly even. The score does not tell the whole story, however, as Gloucester’s offense and defense left something to be desired. Marblehead had attained a 12-6 lead at half time. Through the determined efforts of the team, particularly Frank Destino, Gloucester emerged victorious. BEVERLY 25 GLOUCESTER 21 Played at Bertram Field in Salem, Beverly entered the game a heavy favorite. Beverly scored first, but Gloucester engineered two scoring drives in the first half to lead at half-time 14-12. The bewildered Beverly fans urged the " Garden City” boys to score, but Gloucester was first again to score via a sparkling 65 yard broken field run by Frank Destino which had both cheering sections on their feet. From this point on, Beverly, with a much bigger team began to wear down Gloucester ' s defense, and they scored twice to win. Gloucester did not have to take their helmets off to anyone that day, because Beverly knew they had beaten as fine a team as they had played all sea- son. The fans from Salem and Beverly, as well as from Gloucester gave the " Fishermen " a well-deserved cheer. PEABODY 19 GLOUCESTER 39 Gloucester had very little trouble with Peabody and racked up 39 points. The great efforts by Destino, Morrissey, Cloney, Ciaramitary, and Silva contributed to the important victory and made the season’s record 4-2. MELROSE 8 GLOUCESTER 7 This game was the heart-breaker to end all heart-breakers from the Gloucester standpoint. An early break was given to the Red Raiders when they received 2 points on a safety. A Bob Blatchford punt was blocked and Bob recovered it in the end zone only to be hauled down. The game resolved itself into a see-saw battle of defense and the first half ended with Melrose holding a 2-0 lead. Melrose increased her lead to 8 on a touchdown by Cerretani, their hard driving full back. Finally a spark was ignited in the Gloucester offense and a Destino to Blatchford pass accounted for 6 points with the 7th registered by Destino on a kick. With 3 minutes left in the game, Gloucester took the ball on her own 30 yard stripe and moved up to the Melrose 6 yard line only to be stopped by the clock. WAKEFIELD 6 GLOUCESTER 20 Wakefield, fielding perhaps its best team in his- tory, invaded Newell Stadium for the traditional Turkey Day game. Gloucester played its best game of the season as Blatchford scored twice and Destino once. The game was Gloucester’s all the way as the defense completely bottled up the Wakefield highly- geared offense. This marked the last game for many Seniors who include: Co-Captains Hubie Adams and Bob Pascucci, Bob Blatchford, Jack Carter, Dave Cox, Frank Destino, Charley Fields, Leo Frontiero, Bill Gale, Hogan Garrisi, Bob Greer, Butch Harmon, Jack Kennedy, Clayt Morrissey, Andy Muniz, Bill Ryan, Dick Santos, Bob Silver, Armand and Andre Thibodeau. Although this team was not spectacular, it will long be remembered for its fine team spirit, fight, and sportsmanship. Nate Ross was carried off the field on the shoulders of his victorious " Fisher- men”. He was also presented the game ball to com- memorate his 100th victory in school football.
