Tfc . - r 4 THE 1956 FLICKER CONTENTS Dedication Administration and Faculty Class Roll Features Activities Vocational R.O.T.C. Sports Finale Advertisements DEDICATION The dedication to the first Flicker ever published accompanied the above picture and con- cluded in the following manner: “And so, it is with deepest appreciation and gratitude for the debt we can never repay, that we, the class of nineteen hundred and twenty-three, dedicate our annual to our enthusiastic co-worker, our beloved English teacher, and our sincere friend, Miss Hortense L. Harris.” Although more than three decades have passed since these words were written, they are as meaningful now as they were then; for Miss Harris has continued through the years to give tirelessly of herself, helping to mold two generations of fine citizens. Each individual who has come under the influence of her guiding hand is a fitting tribute to her success. As the last class to graduate before her approaching retirement, we are privileged to bestow, an ad- ditional tribute, our yearbook. Miss Harris — we, the class of nineteen hundred and fifty-six, salute you! Administration VYER FREE LIBRARY LOUCESTER, MASS. 01930 To Members of the Graduating Class of 1956: This class and graduation has a personal significance to me. We have been Fresh- men. Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors together, you as students, myself as Superin- tendent. In many ways the class of 1956 is my class. It is my sincere hope that you. in the various programs and activities you have pursued, have gained in maturity and knowledge. Seek balance in your lives and he earnest in your purposes. We are living in a world whose horizons are continually being raised by men and women such as you. Be alive to the times and the needs of the times. Sincerely, L. MUNRO GRANDY Superintendent of Schools To the Members of the Class of 1956: Four years seems long when you look ahead, but very short when you look back. As you reflect upon your years in Gloucester High School you suddenly realize how much these years have done for you. You entered the doors as children. You are leaving as young men and women. Your high school experiences can be very valuable to you in the future. How valuable depends on you. Congratulations and best wishes. J. STANLEY THOMPSON Assistant to the Superintendent To the Members of the Class of 1956: For four years you have wrought to create your part of the tradition we call Gloucester High School. Your contribution has taken its place beside all the contributions of all the classes which have gone ahead of you. The sum total is the essence of our wonderful educational labo- ratory. You have made many friends among us; we wish you the best of good luck and remind you that we are here to help you if the need arises. ARTHUR N. SMITH Principal To the Graduating Class of 1956: A grain of beach sand with facets reflecting its individuality among other grains are as you: entities being launched upon the sea of humanity where reflected, will be your skills, knowledge, and ambitions that are yours to insure a safe journey for a happy and satisfying worthwhile existence. Be not wrecked upon the shores of disillusionment, ineptitude, jealousy, but remain on your course till you reach port. Remember, the wind and tide is on the side of the best navigator. Bon Voyage! Sincerely, HAROLD B. GEARY Director, V ocational School We of the faculty and administration most sincerely hope that you have become people to whom the challenge of self-responsibility is welcome and to whom the new experience of adulthood is natural and becoming. In so working you have given shape to yourselves; you are formed by what you do rather than by what you receive. To the Class of 1956: Now you are entering that stage of your life called “manhood” or “womanhood.” Your experiences in high school have prepared you to make this important transitory step. No single subject, no one activity, no association was offered to you as an end in itself, but rather as a means to the ultimate end — that of developing youth into men and women to live in and to main a free society. John Stuart Mill, speaking on the training of men, said. “Men are men before they are lawyers or physicians or manufacturers or laborers; and if you make them capable and sensible men, they will make themselves capable and sensible lawyers and physicians and business men.” You who are on the threshold of manhood or womanhood, achieve that end and your life will be both happy and fruitful.

The place, Gloucester; the year. 1989. In the musty vaults of the gigantic stock brokerage firm of Canillas, Cole. Gardner and Goveney. we hear Keeper of Dormant Accounts, John Ahonen, say to the head of the staff’s lawyers. “Mr. Murphy, we have made an incredible discovery; in a neglected file there is an account that has been untouched since the company was founded in 1956. The original investment was negligible, hut with the fabulous booming of Gloucester’s economy these unknown investors have a controlling interest in what is easily the most powerful company of its kind in the world, the Ocean Perch Plastics and Leather Co.” “Investors?” says Murphy. “I thought you said it was one account.” “I did. sir. but you see it’s the investment of a surplus of the treasury of the high school class of 1956. By rights, each member of the class is a stockholder now. Don’t you remember the eloquent appeal made by Admiral Arnold, or I should say Class President Arnold?” “Of course, I remember now. I remember when Richard Jameson sold his formula for making plastic and leather from ocean perch to Tommy Mackey, Joe Lovasco, John Lafond, and Tommy Kerr, the founders of the company.” “Excuse me for interrupting, sir, but hadn’t we better do something about those investors? They have a fortune in back dividends.” “Yes, yes, of course. I’ll have Charles Kearsey, Pat Powers, and Sam Randazza, the detectives, round up the rest of the class of ’56 so we can pay those dividends.” With typical efficiency the detectives begin to track down the widely scattered mem- bers of the class. They have the Hawley, Hawley, Burnham, and Leavitt Advertising Co. spread the news by use of the new printing technique developed by Jack Mala- quias and James Noble. After many months of indefatigable search the entire class has been found and Alice Blatchford and Judy Bouchie are reading the detectives’ report and reminiscing. “Here’s Paul Alper — he’s living on the royalties from his toothpaste discovery. Judy Amero and Judy Chane are writing for TV comedies. Here is the Martin, Murray, Nickerson, and Symonds Theatrical Agency. The class certainly has its share of secre- taries: Judy Gray. Antoinette Grillo. Pat Rogers, Lois Purdy, Ruth Williams, Rita Wilson, and of course Marcia Harvey, secretary to the President of the United States.” “Look at the list of sports figures: John Boyle, the sports writer; Jon Anderson, who holds the speedboat title he won in Karen Christenson’s muffled motor boat; Paul Cook, the decathalon winner of two Olympics; Sally Hodge, the racing driver, and her personal mechanic, Steve Barusso; Marilyn Hoffer, the channel swimmer; Judy Mac- Kenzie, the lady lion tamer; Paula Wilson, who trained Elaine McSheffrey’s Kentucky Derby winner; A.

Joanne Orlando, Marion Montrose, Idella Mitchell, Gladys Markuson, Joan Madruga, Marilyn McKenny, Winnie McCarthy, Marjorie Lufkin, Gertrude Hunter, Dianne Griffin, Judy Belanger. Mary Curcuru, Janice Brown, and Virginia Frontiero.” “Quite a number of our classmates are in business for themselves. Here are some of them: Bob Anderson, maker of do-it-yourself automobiles; Sue Betts, owner of famed local nightclub, the Seagull Club; Carol Brown, of Brown’s Brownie Mix; Geraldine Cook, jewelry designer; Barbara Courant, the new Helena Rubenstein; Carol Enos, owner of a school for airline stewardesses; Sally Erwin, dress designer; Harold Fair- weather, restorer of colonial homes and furniture; Don Foster, a steeplejack; Ronald Gerring, head of a pharmaceutical chain; Mario Godinho, owner of a garlic farm; Tommy Goulart. used car king; Sally Graham, owner of the Tiny Tot Teddybear Mfg.

This has been a fanciful prophecy — some of it may come close to the truth, most will be far from it. We are sure, however, that there is one truth in it — from the wisdom of your investment of yourself, will be determined your future dividend. EXCERTS FROM THE LAST WILL AN] I.

JOHNSON DEDICATION On November 3, 1955, some fifteen hundred persons including the Gloucester High School faculty and student body, public officials, and other associates and friends of our late principal, Mr. Leslie 0. Johnson, gathered in front of the high school to take part in a dedication ceremony. The shrub- bery now surrounding the front entrance was made possible by the generous donations of more than three hundred people as a memorial to Mr. Johnson. This landscaping includes an oval lawn, two tall cedars, three Japanese yews, and twenty pfitzer junipers. The short walk bisecting the oval will, come spring, contain a bronze plaque inscribed as follows: This Area Planted In Memory of Leslie 0. Johnson Principal 1931-1951 By His Friends Dedicated November 1955 The ceremony included a welcoming speech by Principal Arthur N. Smith and selections by the R.O.T.C. Band which Mrs. Johnson had sug- gested. Rev. Edward A. Jones, pastor of the Trinity Congregational Church, where Mr. Johnson was an active member, spoke briefly of the late principal, mentioning his contributions toward making this high school one of the finest in Massachusetts. Mr. Smith announced that the City Council has recently accepted, as a street, the road between Blynman Avenue and Cen- tennial Avenue, so that Gloucester High School now stands on Leslie 0. Johnson Road. After the regiment was dismissed, an oil portrait of Mr. Johnson was formally presented to the school in the auditorium on behalf of the Class of 1953. This picture now hangs in the school library. Both the picture and shrubbery are lasting tributes to Mr. Johnson, a beloved citizen and principal. MILITARY STAFF VIE n " 1 STANDING Sgt. J.

The GHS Fishermen opened their season before a slim gathering at Manning Bowl by defeating the Lynn Classical Rams, 39-6. Junior Larry Harding ran wild through the Ram defense, scoring twice and setting up several other scores. Under- classmen Peter Hickey, Bob Andersen, Boots Parsons and Roger Lee, all got into the act of each adding a TD. Silva and Marino stood out for their fine line play. GHS 7 NEWBURYPORT 7 Muddy Newell Stadium was the scene for the “battle of champions ' ’ as eventual " B " titlists GHS rallied to tie “C” champs. Newburyport, 7-7. The first half saw both teams gaining plenty of yardage, but neither could score. Late in the third quar- ter. Foley of Newburyport returned a punt 85 yards; and the P.A.T. was successful. In the fourth quarter, the GHS offense caught fire, and GHS marched the length of the field to score, with Bob Andersen doing the honors from the five-yard stripe. Hickey bulled over for the point. Jim Hanrahan intercepted a Clipper forward late in the game, and it looked as if GHS Vould rally for the win; but time ran out. and the game ended in a deadlock. GHS 27 SALEM 13 Larry Harding continued his shifty running as he scored twice against the Salem Witches. Hickey and Hanrahan also scored for GHS. A newcomer named A1 Lopes booted two extra points. Coach Ross emptied his bench, and Salem was able to add two consolation scores. GHS 39 LYNN CLASSICAL 6 GHS 26 MARBLEHEAD 6 With junior Boots Parsons throwing passes in perfect form, the Fishermen bombed the Magicians, 26-6. Parsons hit Alex Stephen with two TD chucks. Andersen and Hickey added TD’s for the Rossonians. Butch Marino recovered two key fumbles for GHS to set up scores. GHS 7 BEVERLY 6 For the second straight year, the Fishermen bopped the Garden City eleven. Thous- ands of Fish City fans drove to Hurd Stadium to see the Rossonians push the Beverly team all over the field and win 7-6. The GHS score came when Mike Frigard blocked an attempted punt, and Kiki Adams recovered in the end zone. Lopes booted the point. The home team struck back with lightning-like quickness, but the P.A.T. attempt was broken up by hard-charging Bob Morrissey. Jon Hagstrom did a fine job of quarterbacking the Fishermen, as he replaced the injured senior signal caller, Jim Hanrahan. The line play of Bob Rose, Paul Neimi, and Bob Morrissey stood out for the winners. GHS 34 PEABODY 0 Jimmy Mondello sparked the Fishermen to an easy victory over the Tanners as he ran wild scoring twice. Also scoring for GHS were Harding, Parsons, and Andersen. Lopes booted three P.A.T.’s breaking up the Tanner offensive attack time and again. Silva, Enos, and Tupper looked great in the line. GHS 2 1 MELROSE 7 GHS became class “B” champions by belting the Red Raiders from Melrose, 27-7. On the first play from scrimmage, Bob Andersen ran 51 yards for a GHS TD; and, from there on in, it was just a matter for the scorekeeper. Hickey, Hanrahan, and Enos all scored for the winning Rossonians. Neimi and Marino were opening holes all afternoon with their fine blocking. A1 Stephen continued his fine booting as he practically kicked the ball out of sight time after time on the kick offs. Lopes kicked three more P.A.T.’s. Coach Ross looked toward his bench once again and filled the game with eager second and third-stringers; the Raiders were then able to score. GHS 19 WAKEFIELD 0 Newell Stadium was jammed with spectators on a brisk Thanksgiving Day morn as the Warriors from Wakefield came to town to meet GHS’s highly touted pigskin machine. Gloucester had already won the “B” championship hut still meant to prove their right to the title by defeating strong WHS. Sophomore Pete Hickey led the home offensive thrust with his great running. Hickey ate up plenty of yardage and scored along with Silva and Andersen to give GHS a great 19-0 victory. Bob Rose, Tony Marino. Bob Morrissey, and Jim Hanrahan stood out for their fine defensive play in holding the dangerous WHS backs to little gain. It was a grand victory and a fine way to close the books on the greatest pigskin campaign in GHS history. Gloucester’s guard Tony Marino won many honors at the end of the season. The sturdy lineman was named to practically every all-star team in the area for his great play for the Fishermen. BASKETBALL With “Arizona” Linquata hitting with his set shot, and Co-Captains A1 Stephen and A. J. Pallozola cleaning rebounds, along with the steady playing of Boyle and Harding, the team caught fire for a good finishing drive. After trouncing Saugus, Gloucester threw a scare into the league powerhouse, Lynn English, by closing within four points in the waning minutes of play. At their next outing, the Red and White lost a heartbreaker to Haverhill. It was a nip-and-tuck affair all the way; the Cahillmen lost by one point. In the closing minutes, they had three chances to pull it out, but couldn’t get the needed hoop. A few days later, Gloucester trounced Saugus for its third win. The difference in the later stages of play was that G.H.S. had more depth, as Pete Hickey, Nick Demetri, and Bernie Silva came through when they were needed. Although their record may leave something to be desired, the Red and White showed a hard fighting spirit and a desire to win throughout the 1956 basketball season. Although G.H.S. didn’t enjoy a very successful season, the boys represented the school well in each game. While they were the under- dog at almost every contest, they showed their fighting spirit. At the start of the campaign, Johnny Boyle and Larry Harding spear- headed the play; but the team could not click as a smooth- working unit. They continued their sub-par play until the clos- ing games. In the future, Gloucester’s hopes look bright, as the second team enjoyed a good season. George Patience, Roger Lee, and Pete Ryan were consistent per- formers. With these boys coming back, along with veterans Hard- ing, Linquata, Demetri, and Hickey, Gloucester is sure to be a strong contender for the Essex County title next year. HOCKEY Gloucester came out of t he hockey jamboree with a 2-2 tie against a good Swamp- scott club. Coach Hendrickson’s boys had little opportunity for practice, but hitting for both goals in the final minutes they staged a sharp looking comeback. Since the jamboree, the Frigard-Gleason sextet has proven itself one of the best outfits in the league, and they are coming on strong for second place and the play-offs; first place is conceded to the tremendous Lynn English brigade. Having been beaten by Lynn English, Amesbury, and Swampscott, the Fishermen now have a five and three record. The team looked fast in the opener as they out-skated Danvers for a 5 to 1 victory. Danvers hit first, but only seconds later the score read 1 to 1. Then it was Don Ross who put Gloucester in the lead; next Frigard hit, and then Gleason and Gerring netted two in the final period. In the Beverly ' game the team came from behind to tie it at two all in the second canto. After taking a pass that went from Don Ross to Everett Sawyer, Dexter Rust scored on a beautiful fake. Dick Gerring. the leading scorer, tied it in the second and wrapped it up in the third, for a 3 to 2 win. From here the team went on to slam Salem 5 to 1 with 3 coming in the first period. In the Lynn English game Gleason scored Gloucester’s one and only point; the Fishermen bowed 6 to 1. Gloucester held the lead for the first period, but the English unit recounted with 2 in the second and broke loose with everything in the third. Gloucester had a lot of fight and a few unmaterialized opportunities; Dick Gerring led on with defense and offense. Amesbury pulled a setback when they handed Gloucester a 2 to 1 defeat. This was loss number two for Hendrickson’s club, and it resulted from sluggish stick handling. The Amesbury defense held strong, with Sawyer, often in contact with the puck, alone scoring for Gloucester. Frigard-Gleason and company, however, didn’t take defeat lightly. They have fought their way to the top and have knocked off Lynn Classical, a second place contender, and Marblehead to get even closer to a sure play-off berth. Through the season the club has been sparked by Dick Gerring, Mike Frigard, Herm Gleason, and Len Woodman on offense. Frigard has also turned in a steady “rock and roll” defensive job along with Bob Anderson. Behind Frigard and Ander- sen are Skip Ross, Russ Smith, and Jack Babson. In the cage, with the pressure, have been Pete Burns, Carl Ellis, backed-up by Craig Haberland. All three have done their share, which is always big in the nets. Wi th Revere, Woburn, Winchester, and Peabody left to play, Gloucester is look- ing at the play-offs. They have possibilities which they have shown throughout a hustling season, and the spot looks close. GIRLS’ SPORTS The G.H.S. intramural sports program opens in the fall with archery, volleyball, and badminton, with particular emphasis on archery. Although this sport has been a part of the program only a short while, the girls enjoy it very much. Their second choice is volleyball; they take to it with great interest and are becoming quite adept at it. Volleyball is played on the football practice field and in the gym. Be- sides being part of the regular gym program, it is played after school with special teams of girls who have shown interest in learning more about it. Badminton does not receive as much attention as do the other sports. Being a game which is less strenuous and does not have such wide-spread appeal, it is used chiefly to amuse the girls while they are waiting to participate in one of the more popular sports. During the winter months Miss Shirlye Dana, girls’ physical education instructor, teaches the fundamentals of modern dancing; in addition, she has a co-ed square dance class. As her latest activity she has organized an expert team in bowling, which is expected to become a regular sport within the next few years. Basketball, too, has been enthusiastically received this season, being held after school as well as during regular gym classes. Among the many outdoor sports, golf is being introduced into the spring cur- riculum. Girls will go to the Bass Rocks Country Club each Monday and Wednesday afternoon to be instructed by Miss Dana, a state golf champion, who hopes to form a team which will he skillful enough to enter in competition. Softball, which seems to be the favorite sport, and tennis, only recently initiated, are both played during and after school, to complete the girls’ sports program at Gloucester High School. HR .

He laughs best who laughs when the teacher laughs. •» Time Needed “Oh. Sandra dear. " her mother said, “That man had better go.” “Oh. mother dear, please, not just yet — He works so doggone slo w.” M. Frigard: “I’m grateful to you for all I know.” Miss Harris: “Don ' t mention it; it’s a mere trifle. " ’ Truant officer: “Why are you not at the kinder- garten this afternoon, my little man?” D. Pearsall (indignantly) : “Sir, I am a member of the Gloucester High School. " Did you ever have Macbeth? No. What does he teach? A Taking Girl She took my hand in sheltered nooks, She took my candy and my books: She took that lustrous wrap of fur, She took those gloves I bought for her; She took my words of love and care, She took my flowers, rich and rare; She took — I must confess, my eye, She took my kisses — maid so shy — She took my time for quite a while, She took my ring with a tender smile; She took whatever I would buy, And then — She took the other guy. Teacher: “Name the bones of the skull.” E. McCue (unprepared and nervous): “I’ve got them all in my head, but I just can’t think of the names.” Some people claim the owl is wise. If that were really true, It would exclaim: “To whit, to whom!” And not: “To whit, to who.” Sheila: “What are you thinking about?” Nancy: ' ‘How did you know I was thinking?” Sheila: “I saw an unusual expresson on your face.” The kind old gentlemen met his friend, little Willie, one hot day. “Hello, Willie,” he exclaimed, “and how is your dear grandpa standing the heat?” “Ain’t heard yet,” replied Willie, “He’s only been dead a week.” When talking with most pretty girls, We’re told that it’s no matter How flat your conversation is. They like to have it flatter. She: “What good will football do you in later 9 ” years : He: “Well, for one thing it may help me to get a seat in a bus.” Mr. Card (explaining magnetism): “How many natural magnets do you know of?” D. Arnold: “Two, sir.” Mr. Card (surprised) : “Well, will you name them please?” D.
