TO THE PARENTS OF THE CLASS OF 1955 Who have generously given to us of their accumulated store of wis- dom and experience. Who with sympathy and understanding have guided our lives and have instilled in us our values and ideals. Who have given us the spiritual strength to face the world which is now before us. We gratefully dedicate this, the Flicker of 1955. OLD MASTERS SAWYER FREE LIBRARY GLOUCESTER, MASS. 0193 To the Members of the Graduating Class of 1955: You are among thousands of young men and women who will be graduating this year from hundreds of high schools throughout the country. Some of you will be continuing with your education in colleges, univer- sities, or other post secondary schools. Some of you will enter the service of your country. Some of you will become breadwinners. All of you will need to take part in solving problems as you live and have your being in the several communities. Education never ends. From cradle to the grave we all have call upon our past experiences to meet the needs of life. It is my hope that your past twelve years in the public schools have given you the skills, experiences, and the attitudes which will help you — To Be Effective Citizens in a Democracy. To Have a High Quality of Character and Moral Values. An Ability and Attitude to Think Critically. A Mastery of the Basic Facts in Skills that will help you to become Self-Directing Individuals, as well as Contributing Members of Society. Keep your horizons high and broad. May you be afraid to die until you have won a victory for Hu- manity. Sincerely, L. Munro Grandy, Superintendent of Schools. I congratulate the members of the Class of 1955 upon reaching this important milestone. High School graduation marks the end of a very important phase of your progress. The only bond that is common to every member of this class is the fact that you are graduates from Gloucester High School. I hope that this bond will become stronger and stronger as the years go by and that you will always keep a warm spot in your heart for G.H.S. Sincerely, J. Stanley Thompson, Assistant to the Superintendent. To the Members of the Class of 1955: Yours is a lucky generation. You are graduating into the best world the sun ever has risen upon. There are more people than there ever were before; they know more than people ever have known; they can do, and they are doing, more than people ever have done; they have more than any people ever have had; and, finally, because of these things, there are more opportunities for you than there ever have been for any of your ancestors. If your ancestors did well with what they had to work with, you should do wonders in comparison. Your homes will be better, your work will be more suited to your talents, your leisure time will be tre- mendous, percentagewise, and your children will enjoy educational opportunities indefinable even now. Look around you at the substance of the world; don’t let the clouds get in your eyes. May good fortune attend you as you work to realize on the promise the world holds out to you. Arthur N. Smith, Principal. To the Class of 1955 I extend my sincere best wishes and congratulations. In the future the competition will become more intense and very real. Those values and habits which this school has worked to develop will help you to meet this new and more adult life. Choose now, each for himself, a set of ideals. Hold fast to them, live by them, and you will attain what so many are always pursuing — happiness. Remember always your wonderful heritage, and resolve to maintain those institutions of democracy that we all hold so dear and that have made our country great. Winslow S. Parkhurst, Vice-Principal. I wish to extend congratulations to each one of you on the completion of high school. Sometimes you may look back longingly on your high school days. When this happens remember that the best lies in the present and the future, that the path of school days was trav- elled only to lead on to wider experiences and more satisfying successes. My best wishes to you. Margaret C. Tufts, Guidance Counselor. Sincerest congratulations on a job completed. Your extrinsic reward will be a diploma. As a piece of finely textured paper the diploma enjoys the monetary value of a few pennies. As a symbol of accomplishment and growth its value is priceless. As a certificate for me- diocracy its value must be measured in terms of your own conscience, for it is you and you alone who must provide the true meaning. Leon C. Sprague, Jr. Guidance Counselor. To the Seniors: It has been a pleasure to work with you as a class and as individual students. The place of extra-curricu- lar activities in the school I feel is important. I hope you realize that activities related to, although not a part of, your school work may prove beneficial to you after graduation. Congratulations and best wishes for your future success. Sincerely yours, Mar jorie H. Gale, Director of Extra-Curricular Activities. To the Graduating Class of 1955: The world of work and study in which you are to compete is fundamentally a good one. The journey is not always a smooth one; your sepa- rate pathways may vary, but your destination will be the same, a place in your community within the scope of your ability doing what you can do well. Nurture and improve the heritage you have received from your predecessors and will it as a legacy to your successors. Sincerely, Harold B. Geary, Director of Gloucester Vocational School. D.

This reporter returned to her desk at 3:00 a.m. after a hilarious and profitable evening at the Class Reunion of the Graduates of 1955. The evening began with David Marshall relating how he acquired a fortune in the wilds of Maine where he now owns a ski lodge. After a dinner of fish sticks from a local factory, prizes were awarded. The scientists of the class, Rosalie Pascucci, William Markuson, Gerald Marchant, Vinnie Ventimiglia, William Moore, and Thomas Spittle, entered into an after-dinner discussion; Jay Stuart, poet and pub- lisher; Sylvia Paynotta, well-known commentator; and William McCallum, politician; about the diversified fields of interest the graduates have chosen. Joyce Wallius, Harriet Heberle, Nancy Shea, and Joan Bennett, R.N.’s, were soon busy mending broken bones when Ronald McLeod, Leonard Amaral, and Robert Ryan engaged in an argument. As the evening progressed and spirits grew merry, the group was led by Mary Lou Carroll, Beverly Vidal, and Lois Emero in the singing of old and new songs. This most enjoyable gathering was culminated with two stimulating addresses by the new principal of G.H.S., Donald Smith, and the Vice-Principal, Dave Smith. . . . TONIGHT’S T.V. EVENTS . . .

Two suave looking businessmen, Salvatore Lucido and Philip Venti- miglia are seen discussing high finance while waiting to view the premiere of the new T.V. series entitled " It Pays to be a Genius, " M.C.’d by Charles Mulcahey. Behind the scenes, Fred Ormezzani and George Hawley are arguing over the best method of lengthening a short circuit; while Donald Francis is artfully dodging the sparks which are shooting from a wire held by Kenny Moore. Leroy Strangman is sitting cross-legged on the floor, gazing enrapturedly at Alan Darcey who is, with guitar in hand, giving his melodious rendition " Your Heart, My Heart. " With the opening of the curtain by Ronald Pereen, the seventh vice- president to director Leslie Williams, the Master of Ceremonies introduces two song birds, Anthony Tedesco and Anthony Landoni, singing the in- ventors’ theme " You ' ve Got It Made. " The first invention shown by Jimmy Adams is the portable plastic piston which would flabbergast John Silva who has now completed his invention, a motorless automobile which runs on pills (atomic) placed in the radiator. Dr. Clarence Shamburger re- quested that Mr. Silva not be told — so goes the first T.V. showing of " It Pays to be a Genius.” AT THE MOVIE THEATERS THE PEN — A Stranger in Paris, gay musical comedy, with Lemuel Amero and Robert Hubbard in the leading male roles. THE PALACE — By the Seashore, starring Sylvia Lane and Richard Robator; co-starring Laura Mac- Arthur and Robert Stephenson; produced in four-vision by Chris- tine Rogers, Nancy Sheehan, Ruth Stevens, and Priscilla Stillman. Natalie Pinto, our roving reporter, has graciously consented to take us to five cities where she assures us we shall find several of our classmates in foreign lands. First stop — PARIS! In Paris we find Gail Haberland and Barbara Main, both working as hostesses at famed and fabulous Maxims. Stepping around the corner, after a chat with these two girls, we enter the Red Mill where we find Richard Legendre, Warren Silva, and Arthur Tebo enjoying both the food and the floor show. At another night spot, whose name escapes us because of our lack of French vocabu- lary, we find Carol Johnson leading a group which includes Pat Dawson, Mary Jane Osborne, and Maura Tognazzi. Also in another part of this exotic club we find Marie Richardson reading palms and telling fortunes. We leave Paris and its gay atmosphere for a city close by — BERLIN. We are met at the airport by a group of hve representatives sent by the German Commissioner’s aide, Cynthia Brown. They are Norma Dexter, Phyllis Johnson, Krystina Warren, John Evans, and Dana Parsons. Since it is time for dinner we decide to go out with our guests. Much to our surprise, we find in the ratskellar Robert Stottlemeyer, and Charles Hemeon, who are enjoying the excellent food and drink. We join them and they suggest we try SHANGHAI, China for our next stop — sooo! off we go! Look down, out of that porthole there; see them? Those red and gold and green towers glinting? That ' s Shanghai. Where should we go to look for our friends here? How about a walk past some of the shops? Good! In a large establishment used for selling silks and brocades, we find Leo Berrigan and William Lupo busily at work. We stop to talk and they tell us about themselves and where we can find Ronald Parsons and Merrill Newman. . . . The latter owns, of all things, a fishing company. After a quick visit with these men. we’re off to the shops. Here we find Cynthia Bragdon, Kathy Thomas, Pat Merry, and Judy Nelson window shopping and talking in a very cute mixture of Chinese and English. Farther down the street we find Mary Parks selling beaten silver bracelets and jewelry in her own shop to traveler Marilyn Williams. We decide to buy some of this beautiful jewelry, and then we start off once more; our next stop, CAIRO. In Cairo we are surprised, for the things we expected — palm trees and sand dunes — are not there; rather, a beautifully planned and extremely modern city. In the lounge at the airport, we notice three veiled women. We decided to speak with them in order to learn if they have seen any of our classmates; and, much to our surprise, the veils drop away, revealing the familiar faces of Irene Pereira, Pat Burnham, and Angelina Serio. We had lunch with them and then went to an embassy to have our visas checked by none other than John Spanks, who is an aide in the Foreign Service. Since he knows where several of our former members are, he sug- gests we try a walk on the banks of the Nile. We do and come upon an archeology team composed of Levi Rudolph and Myles Eason, plus two women taking notes as they proceed in their hunt for the things that tell the story of civilization. These women are Geraldine Burnham and Ruth McLeod. After chatting for a moment, we are off to hunt for more members of our class. We find just one more — Arnold Ellis, successful businessmen, dealing in the export of dates. All quite successful and happy here, no? Yes. Our next stop before we’re home again is ROME. In Rome we decide to look around for a while, before we start our hunt for classmates. In an open market we find Joe Vicari, Marianne Linquata, Carol Stephanio, Rosemary Brancaleone, and Leonard Favalora, who are talking about different things that they have done. Carol is a dress designer, Joe is an artist, Leo is a busi- nessman, and Rosemary and Marianne are models. So we leave Rome and head the nose of our jet plane for Gloucester Municipal Airport. Fun wasn ' t it?! A . PULITZER PRIZE . . . . . . DEBUT . . . . . . NEW RECREATION CENTER . . . Ronald Atwood, who has been heralded the world over as the second Steinbeck, has just published another book which has already been nomi- nated by Peter N.

Erkkila were among the many guests at the coming out tea of Nancy Hempel’s oldest daughter. . . . NEW STORE OPENING PLANNED . . . Charles Claar, Norman Reed, Arthur Jackman, and Frank Bergman will reopen their completely remodeled hard- ware store in two months. A gala opening is planned. Phillip Coull, president of the Board of Trustees of the Gloucester City Bank reported last night to the Board, which includes Frederick Dennen, John Bentley, David Bowman, Bill MacDonald, and Gordon Burnham, that there was a general increase in deposits over the last year, amounting to $999,999.00 which has not yet been invested. He made a motion that it be spent for a new recreational center where- upon the other members (nearly all businessmen) agreed and volunteered to make up out of their own yearly profits what- ever was needed to complete this new center. The architect will be Manuel Cecilio of this city. He plans, we found upon receiving and checking this report, to have a swimming pool, skating (ice and roller) rink, various type of table games and many outside game courts. The land for the new center is owned by Charles and William Young. The center will be started in September, with Gregory Burke as Director of Activities. DO YOU NEED A NEW CAR??

IS ■j?: SAWYER MEDALS , — , LESLIE O. JOHNSON SCHOLARSHIPS Lfiurris VALEDICTORIAN SALUTATORIAN u a- CLASS OF 1956 JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY Dum, da, dum, dum My name is Rose, Bob Rose. I ' m a class president; the class of ' 56 to be exact. Together with my advisors, Miss Walsh and Mr. Robinson, and my assistants, David Arnold, Judy Chane, and Jacqueline Stone, I operate out of G.H.S. on a day watch. Yesterday a call came in reporting grand larceny; the object, Paul Alper ' s brief case. Dum, da, dum, dum We put out an a.p.b. to the junior class. The sus- pects were brought in by R.O.T.C. sergeants David Arnold, William Baker, Donald Cloutman, Sydney Marchant, Freeman Selig, and Bernie Silva, with an assist from the Girls’ Drill Team. First we interrogated the members of the class who had the greatest use for the brief case: Jon Anderson, Secretary-Treasurer of the Ride Team; Hilda Bernstein, Sawyer Medal win- ner, President of the French Club, and Treasurer of the Latin Club; John Boyle, Treasurer of the Art Club; Judy Chane, Sawyer Medal winner; Sally Erwin, Secre- tary of the Girls’ Rifle Team; Dana Ginn, Sawyer Medal winner; Louise Grace, Secretary of the Art Club; Noreen Greely, Vice-President of the Girls’ Club; Marcia Harvey, Sawyer Medal winner; Sally Hodge, Vice-President of the Girls’ Ride Team; Carla Johnson, Kathleen Marr, Faye Parady, Doreen Pinto, and Arthur Ryan, Sawyer Medal winners; Sheila Ryan, Sawyer Medal winner and recipient of the Spanish II book prize; Freeman Selig, Sawyer Medal winner; Judy Shoares, Treasurer of the Chess Club; Roberta Silva, Sawyer Medal winner; Gail Webber, Sawyer Medal winner and recipient of the Latin II book prize; and Peter Wood, Sawyer Medal winner. While we proceeded in our investigation, the voca- tional boys constructed a temporary substitute for Paul ' s brief case (a small, three-wheeled cart) to help him transport his secret possessions. Following the advice contained in an anonymous letter, which we believe was by one of our pretty cheer- leaders, Carol Enos, Marilyn Karvellas, Marilyn Nasser, Miriam Robinson, or Roberta Silva, we had our out- standing athletes brought in for questioning. They were Johnny Clayton, Don Enos, Tony Marino, Bernie Silva, and Russell Tupper, football heroes. Alan Hag- strom, Tony Pallazola, and A1 Stephen, prize hoop- sters; baseball whiz Johnny Clayton; and track star Paul Cook. After interrogation, the suspects were assembled for mug shots by Paul Alper, Paul Frazier, and Anthony Malaquias of the stage crew. We then gathered Hilda Bernstein, Robert Davis, and Patricia Woodman, members of the National Thespian Society, to reenact the crime. Stevens Re- viewers Hilda Bernstein, Dana Ginn, Carla Johnson, and Miriam Robinson remarked that the presentation resembled closely the plot of the latest Mickey Spillane thriller. Student Council delegates David Arnold, Judy Chane, Charles Francis, Noreen Greely, Anthony Malaquias, and Sheila Ryan assembled all data perti- nent to the case and presented it for publication to Paul Alper, Dana Ginn, Carla Johnson, Sandra Mar- shall, and Peter Wood of the Flash staff, and Paul Alper, Marilyn Bruni, Carla Johnson, Gail Webber, and Peter Wood of the " Beacon ”. The Art Club assisted by drawing a picture of the principal suspect from the descriptions of several wit- nesses. Anyone having further information which might lead to the capture of this dangerous criminal should immediately notify one of the following people: Hilda Bernstein Judy Chane Carla Johnson Sandra Marshall Peter Wood. All points bulletin. SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY " THE ROOTS OF EDUCATION ARE BITTER BUT THE FRUIT IS SWEET.” — Aristotle (Diogenes Laer- tius). With that quotation, or perhaps another like it, well in mind, the members of the Sophomore class have outdone themselves this year in every respect. " TIS A SURE SIGN WORK GOES ON MERRILY, WHEN FOLKS SING AT IT. — Isaac Bickerstaffe (The Maid of the Mill). This might well have been the motto of the Girls ' and Boys ' Glee Clubs, judging from the many fine productions put on by them during the past year. Sophomore members were: Boys’ Glee Club — David Bloomberg, Thomas Anastas, Lawrence Nicolasi, L ti ciun Bou lcy. Girls ' Glee Club — Sylvia Cooke, Maria Nieberle, Nancy Thomas, Marcia Town, Miriam Pistenmaa, Patricia Cameron, Dorothy Hinchey, Jane Steele, Frances Blick, Karen Dutcher, Lois Fortado, Mary Ann Bertolino, Judy Greely, Judy Brown, Billie Ann Jensen, Townley Gamage, Marcia Brown, Margaret Ran- dazza, Eleanor Haupt, Norma MacLeod, Jill Babson, Joyce Arvila, Joan Hempel, and Joan Courant. " AT THE GAMES END WE SHALL SEE WHO GAINS.” — George Herbert (Jacula Prudentum) . Inspired by words to this effect, many of the boys in the Sophomore class have done a good job this year in the field of athletics. BASKETBALL: Larry Harding, Jon Hagstrom, Sebastian Linquata, Tony Nicastro, Tom Lupo, Nicky Demetri, Kirk Corliss, Joe Nicastro, Richard MacDonald, Gerald Viator, Paul Godhina, Charles Piscitello, and James Mondello. FOOTBALL: Bootsie Parsons, Larry Harding, James Mon- dello, Paul Neimi, Cosmo Pallazola, and Jon Hagstrom. John Connors, Robert Andersen, Mimo Capone, Jack Babson. (Former were lettermen, latter just saw action.) HOCKEY: Lenny Woodman, Robert Andersen, Skip Ross, Dick Gerring, and Jack Babson. TRACK: Jim Holmes and David Parsons. " UP AND DOWN, UP AND DOWN; I WILL LEAD THEM UP AND DOWN.’’ — (A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream.) These words — or something similar — might have been heard in the gymnasium as the SOPHOMORE members of the Girls’ Drill Team were led by their commander, Ellen Egan. They were: Jill Babson, Natalie Balzarini, Judy Brown, Marcia Brown, Dorothy Gibbs, Joan Hempel, Sandra Mitch- ell, Miriam Pistenmaa, Dianne Smith, Judith Woodman, Townley Gamage, and Norma Harris. " WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN, I HAVE WRITTEN. (New Testament, John.) This exclamation was heard many times from contributors and reporters alike as the Flash and Beacon deadlines drew closer. Beacon contributors were: Doris MacNeil and Carol Melanson. Flash members were: Frances Blick, David Bloom- berg, and Billie Ann Jensen. " THE STAGE WAS UNADORNED.” — Ovid (Ars Ama- toria). This complaint was never heard after any of the numerous productions staged at G.H.S. The scenery and props were always in the able and willing hands of the Stage Crew. Members were: Lucien Bouley, David Bloomberg, John Flannagan, Charles Hyde, Joseph Krupski, and David Getchell. " THE PLAY ' S THE THING.” — (Hamlet.) This quotation fits exactly the spirit of the hard-working National Thespian Society. Members were: Susan Pitkanen, Thomas Anastas, and Susan Gregory. " HERE WILL WE SIT AND LET THE SOUNDS OF MUSIC CREEP IN OUR EARS.” — (The Merchant of Venice.) This sentiment has been expressed by many students in the weekly assembly while listening to the orchestra and band play. Members of the band were: Thomas Anastas, Robert Shoares, Donald Elliott, Charles Hyde, John Latassa, Salvatore Nicastro, Anthony Nicastro, Sebastian Linquata, Robert MacLeod, Daniel Strople, Leonard Woodman, Scott Davis, David Williams, Salvatore Ciarametaro, Charles Piscitello. Members of the orchestra were: Marcia Brown, Eleanor Haupt, Scott Davis, Charles Piscitello, and Daniel Strople. " THIS WEIGHTY BUSINESS WILL NOT BROOK DELAY.” — ( Henry VI.) This saying was practically the motto used by the Student Council as they dealt with student participation in the affairs of the school. Members were: Anthony Bertolino, Judy Brown, Larry Davis, and Billie Ann Jensen who was Corre- sponding Secretary of the Council. " AWAY WITH HIM, AWAY WITH HIM! HE SPEAKS LATIN.” — (Henry VI.) This might have been the sentiment of a stranger to one of the Latin Club meetings, but certainly it did not represent the feelings of club members who were: Frances Golden, Frances Blick, Margaret Randazza, Sheila Day, Doris Mac- Neil, Jill Babson, Townley Gamage, Susan Pitkanen, Geral- dine Carpenter, Scott Davis, Edna Brown, Polly Campbell, Joan Courant, and Billie Ann Jensen. " THE FRENCH ARE WISER THAN THEY SEEM, AND THE SPANIARDS SEEM WISER THAN THEY ARE.” — Francis Bacon (Essays; Of Seeming Wiser). This quotation may or may not be true, but the Spanish and French clubs both seemed to have had a lot of fun and to have benefitted a great deal from their meetings. Spanish Club members were: Jean Ribeiro, Norma MacLeod, Nancy Gorman, Dianne Smith, and Betty Soule. French Club mem- bers were: Joan Hempel and Jane Steele. " PRODIGY IN LEARNING.” — Smallett (Roderick Ran- dom). This saying could be truthfully applied to last year’s Sawyer Medal winners: Carol Azevedo and Rosario Milone. " FINALLY, EDUCATION ALONE CAN CONDUCT US TO THAT ENJOYMENT WHICH IS, AT ONCE, BEST IN QUALITY AND INFINITE IN QUANTITY.” — Horace Mann (Lectures and Reports on Education). Thus the Sophomore class passes on to its third year in Gloucester High School. May they continue to distinguish themselves in all these phases of high school activity. By: Joan Courant Larry Davis Jon Hagstrom Billie Ann Jensen THE CLASS OF ’58 PROUDLY PRESENTS THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH To be held continuously for four years at the Glou- cester High fair grounds and composed of the world ' s stupendous talent, gathered at a great expense.

PORTFOLIO I VOCATIONAL AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION PRINT CLASS Knowledge, materials, and equipment are the necessities for any trade. The Gloucester Vocational School is equipped to give trade courses in Automobile Repair, Carpentry, Electrical Work, Machine Tool Operation, Printing, and Sheet Metal Work. These courses are set up so that the student alternates between classroom instruction and shop work. This gives him a background of theory and practical experience in his chosen trade. Work in the classes is co-ordinated with the shop work whenever possible. Classroom work covers the theoretical and practical situations encountered by the working tradesmen. Real equipment is used in most class demonstrations. Shop work consists of using the tools of the trade. The jobs done in the shop are those which will be done in the trade. Each student tries to get different jobs which allow him to use the new methods he has learned in class. Upon completion of the requirements of the Vocational School courses, a student earns a high school diploma together with a certificate of competence in his trade. After graduation the opportunities for employment are virtually unlimited. All of us will benefit directly or indirectly from the knowledge and experience of these new tradesmen.

BACKFIELD ANTICIPATION! BEVERLY FALLS! CHEER THEM ON! When we opposed Lynn Classical, we had had no contact work for a week, due to the unfortunate illness of our teammate, John Anderson, who was stricken with polio. We other fellows had one thought in mind, and that was an upset win for Johnny. With the fine running of Jack Clayton and Ed Nasser and the line work of Jim Winchester, Butch Marino, and Jim Ciaramitaro, we did pull an upset by defeating Lynn 13 to 7. The following week we met Newburyport under the lights, and were again picked as underdogs We turned the tables by defeating the Clippers 20 to 7. Jim Win- chester played his typical game with brilliant line work. A week later we journeyed to Swampscott to swamp them 26 to 7. Ed Nasser played one of the finest games he will ever play, aided by the fine downfield blocking of his mates. We then journeyed to Marblehead and handed the stubborn Headers team a 6 to 0 defeat. We cannot for- get the run by John Clayton which accounted for the lone tally, nor the fine defensive work by Sophomore Larry Harding and Senior Bill MacDonald who halted the attacks of the Headers when they threatened to score. For four weeks Nate Ross and his small football team had surprised the North Shore by collecting four vic- tories in succession. The next game was classified as " THE MEN AGAINST THE BOYS. " Beverly was a heavy favorite to defeat us, and as far as the records on paper were concerned, they would. A game is not won on paper, but on the field. We proved just that when we won the biggest upset in the state by defeating Beverly 6 to 0. This was one of the greatest victories ever to be cele- brated by Coach Nate Ross during his twenty-year campaign as coach at Gloucester High School. We encountered our first defeat in the Newton game, with a humiliating score of 26 to 0. We had not played well as a team that week, and this defeat proved the importance of teamwork in practice as well as in the spotlight. Then came the last football game for the twelve seniors, a day which all of us will remember as long as we live. It was very cold and muddy, but in spite of the elements, we finally came out on top to defeat Wakefield 6 to 0. On behalf of the seniors, we would like to wish Co-Captains Russ Tupper and Butch Marino, along with their teammates, the best of luck in the year to come. Never forget, boys, that the Class of " ’55 " will always be rooting for you, win or lose. WHAT A MESS!
