MEACHAM Superintendent To the Class of 1959: In preparing your report to the public of your activities while attending Murdodr High School, you will be mentally evaluating the contribution of each. It is such a form of checks and balances that helps you to become better citizens as you assume your obligations to society in your own community, state, and country. You will recall some mistakes made and the many successful undertakings. May the mistakes help you attain even greater achievements as you partici- pate in adult activities. May I wish you all success in your future under- takings and compliment you for this fine report. f MJ Superintendent ,Murdack flzgh Adminisfratian To the Class of 1959: May I first congratulate the seniors on their year- book, which reflects the originality as well as the hard work of its staff. All who have contributed to its success should indeed be proud. Frequently, during my many years as Principal of Murdock High School, I have taken a yearbook from the shelf in the office and recalled with pleasure the students whose pictures are on its pages. No matter what career you may choose to follow, whether you remain in this community or travel to far places, we of the faculty hope that you will al- ways return to visit your school. You can be sure that you will be most welcome. Sincerely, .7-74 Principal GUY B. STAPLES Principal fx Yqw. VH Q55 - O o Q - ' , www Sizculiy GUY B. STAPLES Senior Math Principal RUTH A.

X - In September of '56, the present Seniors chose their Sophomore class officers. Stephen Lundsted was elected to the office of President, David Casavant served as Steve's right-hand man in the position of Vice-President, Kath- erine Diamond became Secretary, and john Mizhir was placed in charge of financial affairs. Mr. Hawke was in- vited to provide the adult supervision for our enterprises. He accepted the position of Class Advisor and we were under way. The first thing on the agenda was to fatten up our meager bank account. Four food sales plus a Swedish Meatball Supper in November all added to the "general cofferf' The biggest money-making event of the year was the Sophomore Hop, which was held on February 15, 1957, at the Clark Memorial Auditorium. It was decorated in the traditional red and white Valentine motif. In April of that year, after much dissension among the troops, square class rings were ordered. Mr. Hawke, in the beginning of the junior Year, again served the class as advisor, working with President David Casavant, Vice-President Steve Lundsted, Treasurer and Head Money-Changer jane Harris, and Secretary Rookie Diamond. Later on in the year, Mr. Hawke asked to be relieved of his position as advisor, and Mr. Porter took the job. All the class could turn over to him at the time, how- Hlrzss flisirfry by jean Kicluzrds ever, was a very undernourished pocketbook. This be- came the trademark of the Class of '59. Mr. Porter and the class officers immediately embarked on rectifying the situation by trying to arouse some enthusiasm for "getting out and selling" Murdock stationery and holding a maga- zine drive. We also sponsored a holiday dance on Decem- ber 20, 1957, in the Assembly Hall. The theme was in accordance with the season. A huge decorated Christmas tree was set up in the middle of the stage to add some real holiday atmosphere. In October, many flushed and eager faces shone around Murdock. The big event they were waiting for was the arrival of class rings. Everyone was satisfied, even though their pocketbooks had shrunk. However, there was more work to be done earning money, and the class quickly set about selling Christmas cards. This project proved a real success, much to the delight of advisor and stu- dents alike. This was also true of the cake-decorating class. Soon winter vanished and in came spring. fTra La! Tra Lalj. Around Murdock everyone seemed to be suffer- ing from spring fever except one little group that was very busy. Ah, it was the Juniors! Their project was the junior Prom, the dance of the year for all classes. It is considered the most expensive event of the year and very seldom produces a profit. Each of us soon had a task to do but everyone worked diligently, and on April 25, the juniors presented their Prom at the Clark Memorial Audi- torium, which was decorated for the spring season with pink apple blossoms and pink and white streamers. This, like our Christmas Dance, was done in the popular cabaret style. Also during April, Ilana Motyka and Jane Harris won first and second prizes respectively in the Historical Essay Contest. Junior Ushers were soon chosen by the Class of 1958. They were Judy Marquis, Jean Richards, Marjorie White, Louis Dellasanta, Roger Hunt and Donald Patria. Finally, June rolled around and the strains of "Pomp and Circumstance" floated through the ivy halls. The Juniors, realizing that their last task of the year was upon them, set about decorating for the Senior Reception and the other commencement activities. Finally it was time for the Class of 1959 to enter upon its last year of activity in Murdock. The students who had held the positions of class officers in the previous year, again were elected to serve in the same capacities. The first big event of the year was, of course, class pictures, with Purdy Studio doing the honors. There was much feverish activity on the part of the class officers, advisor, and photographer to produce satisfied customers, but that they did, and very well, too. The bank account was still not as high as it should have been, however. To remedy this, another successful Christ- mas card drive was conducted, plus the very popular record hops and an additional food sale. After this, on October 29, 1958, a delicious Spaghetti Supper prepared by Vic Amenta, was put on. Norma Pierce served very competently as chairwoman of the supper committee. It was an outstanding success. This supper was followed by several more record hops. On December 11, 1958, the Seniors received their class pictures and that same night presented the annual Senior Play. The cast included Marianne Van Arsdale, Louis Dellasanta, Gloria Blake, James Gould, Judy Brown, Katherine Diamond, Joyce Pfeifle, and John Mizhir. Prompters were Mary Fitzpatrick and Theresa Hilow. It came off very successfully under the capable direction of Mr. William Jacoby. After this, everyone settled back, but not for long. Work on the yearbook was resumed at full speed. The staff in- cluded Editor Ilana Motyka, Assistant Editor Maureen Morrison, Business Manager Jean Richards, Assistant Busi- ness Manager Donald LaPointeg and Jane Harris, Kath- erine Diamond, Phyllis Wheeler, Jeannette Morin, Theresa Hilow, Janice Olechnicki, Frances Tardiff, Betty Sibley, Norma Pierce, Louis Dellasanta, Frederidc Blake, Arthur Shaw, Steve Lundsted, Rodney Ginn, Marianne Van Ars- dale, Judy Brown, Dorothy Sawyer, David Casavant, Joyce Pfeifle, Judy Marquis, Rita Ricord, Mary Fitzpatrick, and Susan Cross. During this time, the Senior Graduation and Class Day Speakers were chosen. Jane Harris, -Ilana Motyka, and Stephen Lundsted were elected graduation speakers. Phyllis Wheeler, Donald Patria, Marianne Van Arsdale, Roger Hunt, Katherine Diamond, Louis Dellasanta, Jean Richards, and John Mizhir shared the Class Day honors. On January 30, 1959, a record hop was held. It was the last Senior dance of the year. At an assembly that day, the American Legion Oratorical Contest wasxheld. The speakers were Ilana Motyka, Lois Aaronson, Ruth Potter, Harry Amann, Maureen Morrison and Charles McLain. Lois Aaronson won first prize, and Ruth Potter and Ilana Motyka walked away with second and third prizes, re- spectively. For the Junior and Senior years, five girls were elected to the National Honor Society for scholastic merit. They were Ilana Motyka, Jane Harris, Susan Cross, Frances Tardiff, and Theresa Hilow. . In January of '59, Maureen Morrison received the Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow Award. In the Senior year, also, Jane Harris, Ilana Motyka and Susan Cross were -chosen as Honorary Members of the Winchendon Woman's Club. As our yearbook will be presently going to press, our later activities cannot be included in this history. The trip to Washington in April is the most important of these events to which we are looking forward with pleasure. vplzvmvrc Hap .Sfebruary I 95 7 The light fantastic 8 1 N I, J7 C' i il K i, I Marianne VanArsdale crowned Queen of Hearts by President Stephen Lundsted.

As class orator, it pleases me greatly to know that a large number of the citi- zens of Winchendon are about to hear a startling piece of news-yes, even more sensational than that article in the papers of January 24. And what is this news which will make all of you here today sit up and listen with rapt attention? just this: You need no longer worry about the building or financing of a new Murdock High School. The members of our class have for almost two years known about the new plan, but they have kept it a secret. You may ask, "How can 49 people keep a secret?" and I answer, "Only a group of such strong character as the present seniors could boast of such a feat." Now, let me give you the facts: When you leave these exercises today, I would like you to wait until the sky is almost completely dark. Then go out on your lawn and look directly West. A gleam of light will appear and sweep majestically across the sky. And what is this gleam? Another Russian satellite? No, my friends, it is MUR- DOCKNIK, the amazing rocket that is not a rocket. Because of certain influence which the seniors have with the government since they first began to save money for their class trip, the officials in charge of the space pro- gram agreecl to turn over their largest rocket, completely pressurized for human beings, to Murdock High School. The rocket was secretly launched during our visit to Wash- ington in April and not a word about it has appeared in the papers. MURDOCKNIK contains a total of 14 soundproof rooms, each with 36 desks and chairs firmly anchored to the floor. Seat belts are provided so that the students will not be released to the ceiling because of the lack of gravity. The teachers are also firmly fastened to their desks, an improvement we wish had been included in the present l W Murdock High School. When classes pass, seat belts are loosened and the stu- dents fly to the next room in which their classes are held. Now you may have some questions to ask, such as, "How is MURDOCKNIK heated?" The answer is, "By the,sun, around which MURDOCKNIK will circulate for twelve hours a day, returning to its moon orbit every evening." Mr. Kenneth Clement has been secretly given instruction in the steering and operation of the generators, and is highly in favor of any plan by which he no longer has to stoke an ancient boiler. The next question is, "How will the students go back and forth?" The answer is, "By BUSSNIK." Instead of beginning school just after Labor Day, a fleet of EDDIE GUERTIN BUSSNIKS will leave for our satellite three days early. By following this plan, students will be able to attend classes in the usual way by a platoon system. If you wish to know what fuel will be used in the BUSS- NIKS, I will tell you. Because of certain influence which I, myself, have with an oil company, the MIZHIR ROCKET FUEL will be available at a very low rate. The BUSSNIK should get .50,000 miles to the gallon. A space platform near MURDOCKNIK allows the students to disembark comfortably and to board the rocket as it goes by. The platform will be traveling at the same speed as the rocket. Of course the teachers must expect such disadvantages as notes from parents saying, "Please excuse Mary, as she missed the BUSSNIK," or, "johnny fell off the space platform yesterday and we expect him home by tomorrow." You realize that these' are minor faults and to be easily corrected. Don't forget, friends of Murdock, go out tonight and look in the Western sky for the finest invention of all, the new MURDOCKNIK!

Early in the game the Mahar Senators found a weakness in the Murdock defense and combined long passes and short line gains for two quick scores, Murdock fought back gallantly but without the services of quarterback Dave Casavant, injured in a pre-game scrimmage, the Blue Devil at- tack sputtered. Finding themselves behind 16 to 0 early in the ball game Murdock took to the air and made several thrusts into Senator territory but failed to score. MURDOCK SCALPS INDIANS Dave Casavant, back in the Murdock lineup, spirited the Blue Devils to a 22 to 6 decision over the Ware Indians. All three Murdock scores came off the ride series which Casavant executed bril- liantly. Casavant was first to score on a keeper around left end, then fullback Don Patria took 'over and battered the W'are line to shreds as he ripped off con- tinuous gains resulting in the second score. A fake ride with a pass to Dennie Casa- vant covered 50 yards for the final score. Eddie Fitzmaurice became the only in- terior lineman to score as he convened on a screen pass. MURDOCK CRUSI-IES LUDLOW In the second home game the Mur- dock offense swung into high gear as the Blue Devils romped over Ludlow 28 to 6. The outcome was obvious before the end of the first half as Murdock scored three times on long runs. Dave Casa- vant started the scoring as he circled right end and outraced defenders into the end zone. A few plays later Don Patria burst through right tackle and raced into pay dirt. Buddy Flint then put the game on ice by scampering 63 yards for the third score. Early in the second half a Dave Casavant pass to brother Dennie was good for the final tally. MURDOCK BURIES FRONTIER In the first fifteen minutes of the game Murdock chalked up 34 points to win a lopsided victory over Frontier Regional. The Murdock team outclassed Frontier in all respects as the Blue Devil backs slashed through the weak Frontier line at will. Don Patria scored twice with drives up the middle while Dave and Dennis Casavant and Buddy Flint each added one to the mounting score. The reserves took over at the fifteen minute mark and played the rest of the game, nearly adding another score, 'T Jffuhu fx ag. ,iff fro 1 ff? 1945, W A ' my Y . ,. :W " hr ,, , fs Q my Z, if 1A8I?4!.,J Q.. sf I N Y 'X .
