Printed and Bound by Cole Printing Company, Nashua, N. H.
In May, 1849, the first high school in our city was established near
the present site of the Mount Pleasant School. At that time the town
was split in two, the half north of the river being called Nashville and
the southern half Nashua. ln 1851, another high school was opened in
a building known as the "Old Brick" on West Pearl Street. Two years
later this second high school moved to a larger building on Main Street
which is now the rear section of the Colonial Theater. ln 1853, after
eleven years of quarrelsome separation, Nashville and Nashua were ref
united under a city charter, but it was not until 1869, when the old
school districts were abolished, that the two high schools were united
in a single central school at the Main Street Building.
In 1875 the high school moved into a building on Spring Street,
and in 1905 to the building on Temple Street still used as an elementary
school. ln 1919, after a spectacular fire had destroyed the old Spring
Street building, the high school moved into a fine new building on the
same site, the present junior High School. The final move was in 1937
to our present beautiful building on Elm Street.
What were they like, these one hundred young people of 1849
who crowded into that first high school, which had accommodations
intended for only eighty? The textile mills had been in the community
since 1823, the railroad since 1838. The excitement of the California
gold rush and "manifest destiny" was in the air, the tragedy of the
Civil War still in the unknown future. They studied a narrow curf
riculum and had few athletic or social activities connected with school.
With what amazement their ghosts would view our gymnasium and
auditorium, or listen to an announcement over our radio system! Yet
we suspect that underneath their quaint attire and old-fashioned man'
ners they were much like high school students of today in their high
spirit, ideals, and capacity for friendship.
Not wishing to forget those who attended our school in its inf
fancy, we celebrate in this 1949 classbook the centennial of the estab-
lishment of the first local public high school.
PAGE SIX TUSITALA
During the one hundred-year span between the establishment of
a public high school in Nashua and the publication of this yearbook,
an uncounted host of young people have studied here and gone out
into the world imbued with memories of their schooldays. To celef
brate this centennial, we the editors humbly dedicate our yearbook
to all the Nashua High School students who have gone before us.

THE WEALTH QE EDUCATION
Beneath some rocky mountain crag
In Eighteen forty-nine
Men swung picks and shovels
To dig themselves a mine.
For these were the Forty-Niners,
The wanderers of old,
And the wealth that they were searching for
Was the mighty mineral-Gold.
In that same year a building rose
That hardly scraped the skyg
Still 'tvvas a house of destiny
'Twas our first Nashua High.
And now in Nineteen fortyfnine
The gold spreads thru the nation,
But itls not the yellow rock we mean.
It's the wealth of Education.
And we needn't search or dig for it.
It's not too hard to find.
Each miner carries his private ore
In the depth of his own mind.

Our class started its work with the school magazine
slowly and ended strongly. The first member of our class
to have a position on the staff was Louise Evans. Since
juniors are given almost all assisting positions on the staff,
our class was well represented during our junior year.
Ranking junior member was Richard Cieslukiewicz as junior
Literary Editor. The other classmates that served on the
staff were Marjorie Whittemore, Elaine deMontigny, Alvin
Lucier, Rosemary Kehoe, Louise Evans, loanne Kean, and
When our class took over the magazine, many innova-
tions were introduced. First, the price was raised to twenty-
five cents an issue and seventy-five cents
for a year's subscription. To balance this
increase, the size of the magazine was in-
creased, and there were pictures in every
issue. In one issue the photographic sec-
tion was devoted to baby pictures of the
In one issue the photographic section
was devoted to baby pictures of the
students, In the spring a short story
contest was held. The staff was congra-
tulated on the quality of the magazine
and set a high goal for succeeding staffs.
Richard Cieslukiewicz was Editor-in-Chief,
assisted by Rosemary Kehoe, Associate
Editor. The other members of our class
that served on this staff were Ioanna
Chiotinos, Raymond Hackett, Iohn War-
rington, Marjorie Burnham, Dorothy Barry,
Mary lane Hickey, Ann DerManoogian,
Richard Chacos, Ianice Iensen, Estelle
Richards, Frank Murphy, Ioanne Lemire,
and Ianet Dolloff.
In November, IQ47 an idea presented
in Miss Noyess lunior English class ma-
tured into Nashua IcIigh's most powerful
student organization, our Student Council.
Through the founding committee, Dorothy
Barry, loanne Kean, and lanet Dolloft, the
council was officially established in Ianu-
This first council, elected by the
democratic ballot process, consisted of
four seniors, three juniors, and two soph-
omores. Among the officers elected were
Vice-President William Bryant and Treasu-
rer Ianet Dolloff. At weekly meetings the
council made plans for the betterment of
' school social life, and answered student
suggestions. To come into close Contact
with the students, the council formed a
liaison body of I-Iome Room Representatives which met
monthly with the council. With but half a year to establish
principles, this student governing body, guided by advisors,
Miss Doe and Miss Noyes, functioned most efficiently.
This year's council, headed by President Richard Cies-
lukewicz, an original member, and Vice-President lane
Hickey, included also Robert Ainscow and Dorothy Sirois.
It has sponsored school dances, a talent assembly, school
song contest, Christmas hop, and a successful pep rally,
attracting ninety per cent of the school body.
This Student Council, which has done so well in satisfy-
ing the students, was our contribution to Nashua lligh. We
have watched it grow, seen its activities expand, its strength
develop, until today it stands as the most powerful student
organization in the school. We are amply satisfied with this,
our brain child.
The Nf1Sl1UG liiflh School Band has played an important
part in tho activities oi tho school during our three years
hero. Ably conducted by Music Director C. Elmer Wilson, it
has performed at assemblies, athletic events, and other
school and civic functions.
ln i945 the lmanci accompanied the footliall team to
lacksonville, Florida. The money tor this long trip was
largely collected by the members themselves, by conducting
a tag day.
Each spring the band has held its annual concert, twice
in conjunction with the glee club. These and other concerts
have served to acquaint the members with classical music to
augment the usual band variety, Recognizing the need for
constant group rehearsals, the school for the past three years
has sponsored a special band school during the vacation
months. The emphasis in this course was placed on sectional
This year the band undertook a high-
ly successful new project of interesting
other schools in the possibility of starting
school bands. They played concerts in
Milford and Wilton, and also gave demon-

The Nashua High School Glee Club,
composed ot sixty-tive voices, has been
at major school activity during our years
nt Nashua High. Under the fine direction
ot Elmer Wilson, this group has given
many creditable concerts.
Perhaps the most important concert
of the year has been the annual band
and glee club Concert held in April. This
year the glee club presented nine well-
knovvn choral Works including "Sanctus"
by Gounod, "Madame leanette" by
Murray, and the undying "Battle Hymn
of the Republic" arranged by Wilhousky.
l Besides this annual presentation, this
l group has presented well-appreciated
Christmas and Lenten concerts for the
student body. ln addtion, the glee club
has performed annually at the lunior High School and at
the Hudson Convent.
The senior members of the glee club this year are Delores
Bello, Leo Bernard, Roseann Boghus, Rolande Boudreau, Cora
Bradley, Virginia Brisson, Richard Chacos, Priscilla Cutter,
Anne Der Manoogian, lanet Dolloft, Kathleen Doyle, Pauline

llelon Mantsavinos, Beverly Mclioewn, Veto Narkunas, Mil-
fired Osgood, Mary Pelletier, Dolores Pike, leanne Vacca,
and Norma Wendland.
ln retrospect we members of the glee club can recall
many wonderful times we have had preparing and pre-
senting these concerts. Words cannot show our sincere
thanks to "Pop" Wilson for his patience in guiding us
through these three wonderful, years.

The Camera Club was the first club
chartered by the Student Council when
itvwas organized in 1947. Miss Isabelle
Dionne was the Camera Clubs' first
SPOTISOF. Officers from our class elected
in the first year are Robert Bundy, 1947.
1949 ViC9'President, and Robert Cyr 1947-
1948 treasurer. '
The first club activity was a "Pix
around the School" contest which went
over very well. An exhibit of pictures by
Camera Club members was placed in
the bulletin boards on the first floor. Ex- 1
hibitors were Robert Bundy, Calvin 1-lolt, 1
and Robert Cyr. The Camera Club also
went on a field trip to Wildcat Falls,
where the members took pictures and had
a cook-out. Ray Griffin, a local photo-
QTUPHGT, gave a helpful llustrated lecture on the "General
Aspects of Photography." Robert Bundy gave Q lecture on
the Mechanics of the Camera."
During 1948-49 Miss Ruth Hussey sponsored the Club,
Seniors elected to office were Robert Bundy, president,
Richard Ethier, vice-president, Robert Cyr, treasurer, lane
POTW, S9CfelUfYt and Donald Bruce, progam chairman. The
first activity of the club was a radio broadcast in which
many members took part. At various intervals during the
year, Robert Bundy gave lectures and demonstrations on
ft-'IH PiC1L1fe photography, developing and printing films,
compositon, and portraiture. Another favorite activity was

Dramatics, one of the school's long-established clubs,
has been very popular as an extracurricular activity during
our three years in school, as the attendance at the bi-monthly
meetings attests. The officers in charge of planning and con-
ducing the meetings have included the following members of
our class: 1947-1948, Vice-President, Dorothy Barry, Secre-
tary, Leila Winograd: 1948-1949, President, Dorothy Barry,
Secretary, Nancy Rice, Program Chairman, Leila Winograd,
Treasurer, lane Barry.
Every year the club sponsors a school dance, the pro-
ceeds from which are used for some worthy cause in con-
nection with dramatics, ln 1948 a clavenport for use in school
plays was purchased, and this year the money was used to
repaint the scenery. Radio programs, assembly plays, and
presentation of plays for outside organizations have all been
part of the annual program. The follow-
ing members of the class of 1949 have
participated in such programs: Leila
Winograd, Yvonne lelley, lfloward Brown,
Dorothy Barry, lane Barry, Richard Bou-
ley, Murray Wright, Helen Mantsavinos,
Raymond LaRoche, Nancy Christian, Ri-
chord Cieslulsiewicz, Anne DerManoo-
ln 1948-49 the club subscribed to a
monthly magazine, Dramatics, which has
been available in the library for all
students interested, as well as drawn
up a constitution which, it is hoped, will
eliminate any future problems about
membership, dues, and qualifications for

The presentation of talent shows, the
acting of tableaus and pantomimes. and
outside speakers talented in different
fields of dramatics, are all activities
which have kept the meetings lively and
The Latin Club is another feather in
the cap of the class of 1949. The idea for
this club, the first language club in
Nashua High School, started 'in the
senior Latin class in the fall of 1949. Miss
Dors S. Barnes agreed to sponsor it and
the Student Council granted it a charter.
At the first meeting on November 17N
1943, Rosemary Kehoe was elected pzesre
dont. lt was decided that membership
would lie limited to 1.atin students and
that meetings would be held on one Mons
dqy each rnonth. Committees for each
program were appointed. At the second
meeting on Decernber 17, 19453, dues
were announced as twentyrfive cents for the year, to be
paid by the March meeting. At a later meeting the club motto
was chosen: Hllaecr Studia Adulescentiam Alunt," tTheSG
studies nourish youthl. At suc-cooding meetings movies were
shown the rnernbers. One especially interesting to those who
had mad Iuliug Caesar depicted Caesar's death and the
famous speeches of Brutus and Mark Antoni'-
In March the Latin Club put on Cm oriqirwl 10510 Dm'

sponsor, who has put so much time into it, and to te

In Ianuary, 1948, with Miss Temple as advisor, the local
Nashua Chapter of the Future Homemakers of America was
organized in our high school. This is the national organization
of girls studying home-making in iunior and senior high
schools. After a few planning meetings, forty-seven girls
were initiated. Among the officers elected for the first year
were Doris Carvalho, vice president, and Melpo Lellos, se-
cretary. During the spring, several work meetings were held
tc prepare toys and mittens for needy children.
At the spring state-wide meeting at the University of
New Hampshire, seven girls enjoyed a full day of campus
tours, business meetings, a fashion show, and tea.
At the first fall meeting in 1948, Barbara larry was
chosen president. This year ten representatives from the
Nashua Chapter enjoyed a trip to Keene
for the state-wide meeting of the organi-
zation, where the year's program was
planned and the activities of each chap-
ter reported. During this meeting the
Nashua Chapter was chosen to print the
first issue of the New Hampshire Home-
makers of America Newsletter. Also at
this meeting Me-lpo Lellos was elected
state program chairman of the club.
Other activities for the year were
business meetings, a Christmas party, a
dance, work meetings for publishing the
Newsletter, and the starting of a knitting
Mss Temple has been active in the
state board as well as the Nashua
Chapter and we of the club would like
to thank her for the most generous help-
t ing hand she has given us.
The cheerleaders of the class of 1949
have done much to improve cheerleader-
ing for Nashua High by making up
many new cheers, by leading pep rallies,
and by putting their hearts into their
cheering. The system used to elect the
cheerleaders is to elect three cheerleaders
in their junior year. Then the next year
three more are elected from the senior
class, making six seniors in all among
the nine. Mr. Paquette has done much to
help the girls get organized.
Cheerleaders for their junior year were Claudetfe Cote,
Louise Evans, and Mary Iane Hickey. With the other cheer-
leaders they did much to cheer the teams on in both football
Those who cheered during their senior year were
Claudette Cote, head cheerleader, and Louise Evans, Mary
lane Hickey, Rita Lajoie, Patricia Williamson, and Priscilla
Cutter. Although the football season was not one of the best,
the cheerleaders helped to keep up the morale of the team
and to keep the Nashua fans cheering till the end.
There were many new cheers added to their repertoire
for the basketball season, and they added much to the
basketball games. The girls also did a fine job of cheering
the basketball players on to win the Merrimac Valley Con-
ference and the New Hampshire Championship. During the
New England Tournament they helped to keep up the team's
and fan's morale.
During our senior year, the Tunior Red Cross Club in
this school was started by a group of high school pupils who
belonged to the Nashua Chapter-wide Council of the Ameri-
can lunior Ped Cross. These students, realizing that in most
cities the Iunior Red Cross had an active high school organ-
ization, decided to get busy. They appointed a committee,
headed by Theodore Degasis, to discuss the matter with the
Student Council and Mr, Morley. Next a petition was sub-
mitted to the Student Council, which thereupon chartered the
club. Miss Trudel kindly consented to serve as teacher
The first meeting of the new club was
held on lanuary l8, l949. Officiating was
the chairman, Theodore Degasis, who
served until the club could hold its own
elections. The secretary appointed at
the first meeting to serve until elections
was lean Meunier. At this meeting plans
were made for the election of home room
representatives, the writing of by-laws,
and the later election of officers. Per-
manent officers were chosen from under
classmen in order to provide continuity
in the organization for another year.
The aims of this new club are to teach
the ideal of service and thoughtfulness to
others, to instill a feeling cf friendliness
towards the young people of the world,
and to train students in higher health
standards and good cihzenship All these
add up to beter itizenship and leader-

Holand Mclsoud, Eddie Gagnon, Bob Bartis,
and Bud Dearborn.
The season of 1947-48 provided many
thrills for the fans. Our class was represented
by Buddy Lemay, Bob Gordon, Dusty Dutton,

In 1946 Buzz Harvey became coach of base-
ball. 1949's contributions to that team were
Buddy Lemay, Dusty Dutton, and Chuck Vail-
lancourt. The next year, Gil Dumais, Bob Gor-
don, Holand Mcl..oud, Hichard Carter, Donald
Fifield, Buddy Lemay, and Chuck Vaillancourt
represented our class. ln 1948 these boys, plus
Dusty, who had re-entered school and joined
the 1949 class, were all members of the team.
Since they are all candidates for this season's
team, prospects for success are greatly en-

On the undefeated 1946 team which won
the East Coast Championship in lacksonville,
Florida, were the following members of 1949:
Albert Lemay, Donald Sproule, and lohn
The 1947 team also retained the State
Championship, but was not so fortunate as
the preceding team. Our class was repre-
sented by the following pupils: Albert Lemay,
Donald Fifield, loseph Kopka, Gilbert Dumais,
Roland Mcluoud, Chris Rellas, Leonard Curtis,
and Robert Tartalis.
This last year, 1948, produced a team that
contained a lot of pigskin talent but just could
not seem to get started, and ended up the
season with a record of four wins and six
losses. ln the number one spot, center, was
Captain Albert Lemay, who earned the All-
State title. Robert Bartis played tackle hard and
fast until he was removed in the Manchester
Central game because of leg injury- NClS11UC1
High had specialists, in the persons of Gilbert
Dumais, left-handed-bullet-pass expert and lo-
seph Kopka, place kicker, who demonstrated
his prowess especially in the Lowell game by
booting the ball completely out of the park.
Also playing this last year were Donald Fi-
field, Roland McLoud, and Robert Tartalis.
The class of 1949 is deeply grateful to
Coaches Harvey and Morandos for their
ability to produce such fine teams as those in
which members of 1949 participated.

defeated predecessors still sounding. Roland
McLoud, whose brilliant play as a sophomore
earned him a position on the 1947 squad,
which swept throuQl'1 its 919111-1T1CI1C11 SGCISOU
without sustaining a defeat, was joined last
year by Gerald Lagasse as representative of
our class on the team.
Despite the lack of experienced players,
Coach Scheer drilled his boys long and hard
with a very respectable four wins, two loss
record as the result. This record included a
two-match sweep over our arch rival, Man-
chester Central, and splits with Fitchburg and
Assumption of Worcester.
1-liglights of the season included the smash-
ing forehand drives of McLoud, which discour-
aged many an opponent, and the clever shot-
making of Gerald Lagasse.
The squad was called out in the last week
of March in preparation for the 1949 season.
McLoud and Lagasse are seniors with an in-
side track on positions. Other seniors trying out
for the 1949 squad are Lionel White and Ray
The golf team at Nashua High has enjoyed
successful seasons throughout the past three-
years, particularly during 1948, when the team
had an enviable record of seven wins and one
defeat. This defeat was handed to the Nashua
team by a powerful Concord team at the Con-
cord home course. The 1948 team also dis-
played talent and sportsmanship at the state
tournament held in Portsmouth. Murray Wright
reached the finals in the class C division. All
of the 1948 team's matches, at home or away,
were played under the watchful eye of Mr.
Leonard Paquette, faculty manager. Through
the efforts of Mr. Paquette, the team's various
road trips were thoroughly enjoyed. ,
The 1949 season is expected to be even more
successful because of the fact that this year's
team will be composed entirely of boys who
played last year. The 1949 captain of the golf
team is David Marquis. Other senior members,
are lohn Crisp, Ralph Chesnulevich, Murray
Wright, and Paul Ouellette. The schedule in-
cludes matches with Manchester Central, Ports-
mouth, Concord, New Hampton Academy, and
a newcomer, Phillips Andover Academy. With
this list of opponents on their schedule, the
Nashua High golf team is expected to face very
stiff and worthy competition. '

In the spring of 1948 the girls of Nashua High
School had their first opportunity to play softball
when a softball team was organized under the
direction of Coach Tony Marandos. The girls repre-
senting our class were Dolores Pike, Shirley Hol-
brook, Marjorie Vtlhittemore, Eleanor Marshall,
joanne Kean, Marjorie Burnham, Margaret Bits.
julianne Moreau, Marjorie Miner, Dolores Dutton,
Hope josephson, Laura Fraser, Kathleen Raymond,
Patricia jones, jean Vacca, Harriet MacDuffie, and
Gloria Gardner. At the end of the season Coach
Marandos chose an all-star team, composed of the
outstanding players from the three teams and inclu-
ding the following seniors: Eleanor Marshall, Dolores
Pike, joanne Kean, Margaret Riis, and Marjorie
Burnham. This team played against the junior High
School softball team of Hudson and Nashua High
won, thereby remaining an all-star team.
If it had not been for the helpful guidance and
time given by Miss McWeeney and Mr. Scheer,
girls' tennis would have been non-existent in Na-
shua High the past three years.
In 1947 Mr. Scheer helped us to organize a
team of five by means of an elimination tourna-
ment. In 1948 a team was organized, but because of
rainy weather the scheduled matches were never

Although the team was beaten frequently during
the '47 and '48 seasons, the girls managed to win
over Hudson junior High, Hudson Alumnae, Nashua
Business College, and the Y Seniors, among others.
The girls, helped by Coach Ciccolo, achieved a
winning record for '49, losing only one game. While
thus busy against outside competition, the seniors

CLASS OF 1949
Coaltown at 40-1
Louie Cwithout his gunl ,
NEW WQRLDS T0 COME
Fastened to the cloak of night
For each does shine a star,
A tiny crystal point of light
That beckons from afar.
And while its silver rays do speak
Of a future yet to come,
Strange new worlds which many seek
Are visible to some,-
Where mountains yearn to feel the tread
Of eager, marching feet,
And dull eyed people wait for bread
That's warmed by freedom's heat.
There seas await new ships to guide,
And children long for love,
While bleeding nations must decide
'Tween sword and peaceful dove.
And here shall be a place for each
New gift that we shall use
To build, create, restore, and teach
That they may wisely choose.
So when fear's black banner's furled,
The ruins we will span
To plan and mold a better world
At peace with God and man.

just threw a lavish party. lt says that there were
many notables about town hobnobbing at his ter-
race dinner party. lulia Antonas and Melpo Lellos,
international workers for Greek Relief, Leo Bernard,
recent winner of the Boston Marathon, and that

more than me, but lane and Dot Barry have opened
a Modiste Shop with Paris originals. Pauline Dube
trims the hatg, with feathers, and Iayne Frechette
crochets lace gloves. Elaine deMontigny, in her
private helicopter, travels from the Barry Salon to
Paris for the originals.
Nancy: Technician Art Brouard was kept
quite busy tuning sets when television star Dick
Dustin scared all the little kiddies in his role as the
"Creeper," on a suspense program. Cn the more
educational side was the visit that television stars,
Nancy Dickey and Nancy Bice, paid to the kinder-
garten managed by Betty Dobens and Ianie
Hickey. Nancy Bice tells the kiddies stories while
Nancy Dickey illustrates the characters.
Iimmy: Howard Brown's Personal Finance
Company has given a loan to Shirley Potter and
Donna Hankinson, who produce all white meat

Hudson, don't you?
Nancy: Well isn't that cozy! I see the recent
performance of the circus owned by Boland Le-
tendre and Paul Gibson broke all attendance rec-
ords in Nashua. The daring young lady on the
flying trapeze is Ieannine LeBlanc: Barbara larry
is a sensational bare-back rider: and Bita Guimond
and Armand Fortier star in the roller-skating act!
In the concession stands were Bob Bartis and Dick
Dutton: Bob wraps candy kisses, and Dick places
the prizes in the cracker jack boxes. Star of the side
show is loanne Kean, with her itchless fleas which
perform strange dances by the light of the moon.
The music for the many performances was fur-
nished by Hope losephson and her all-boy orches-
Stanley: What's the sudden interest in the
racing form, Yvonne?
Yvonne: Well, I like to play the ponies! While
at the track the other day, I hit the daily double. I
bet on Ziggy Baskiewicz's Beedlebom, trained by
Floyd Farnsworth and ridden successfully by Ed
McNally. There was a large crowd-George Field,
editor of Unpopulcn' Mechanics, Stan Reynolds,
owner of a mammoth toothpick factory, and Agnes

their winnings at the ticket windows. l rode home
with lOhr1 Quigley, who is a Buick dealer, and his
prospective customer, Theresa Paradis.

Grandmaison have opened a shoe store. Bud
Lemay is their road salesman. ludging from his
school days, he must be quite a salesman.

quite a place now. Rachel Ermala is supervisor,
and Claudette Lesage sings the happy birthdays
over the phone. On the maintenance crew is Bob
Michaud, and high voltage trouble shooter is
Yvonne: The Nashua Police Department, under
the able leadership of eagle-eyed Walter Losik, has
made quite a name for itself. Bruce Gordon works
in the chemical department, as does Betty Matyos-
ka. Al lacques is a policeman on the corner of Elrn
and Lake Streets. Private-eye Leila Winograd has
proved herself extremely helpful to the department.
Stanley: Getting back to the sport page. Tom-
my Burns is the recently appointed business man-
ager of the Nashua Dodgers, and is seeking that
two hundred words a minute typist, Ermioney
Bouras, as his secretary. The Nashua Bowlaway is
managed by Maurice Cuellette, and right next
door is Claire Ouellette's Haberdashery, dealing
mainly in flashy uniforms for the baseball players.
I see that hockey has been revived in Nashua-
at the new rink is a concession stand operated by
Priscilla Cutter and Ginny Brisson. They're still in-
terested in hockey.
limmy: Arthur Provencher's new quota of
iuke-box machines is slowly putting the Penny
Arcade Inc., owned by Lorraine Bird and Beverly
McGinley, out of business. Arthur's able de-
monstrator is tap-dance champ, Charlie Gustafson.
Last week Charlie sprained his ankle while
dancing to the Twelfth Street Rag, but thanks to
registered nurse, Constance Boilard, he has re-
gained the use of his tapping toes.
Nancy: Lorette Bruneau wraps the bread for
the Estelle Fortier and Georgia Tsacoumis Tender

Yvonne: Peter Trubacz and Lenny Curtis are
dentists employed by Barbara Dumas, the new

Iimmy: The new bus line operating between
Nashua and Melrose, Massachusetts, is managed
by Don Sproule. Ioanie Hardy collects the tickets
and takes charge of the profits. Eleanor Foley is a
constant rider, and l see that Evelyn Rand is head
of the Nashaway Woman's Club, and Gloria
Gardner is chapter chairman of the Red Cross. Re-
cently they all took an educational trip on the
Sproule Special Speedy Bus Line.
Nancy: Here in the personals columns I see
that Louise Evans knits argyle socks for shoe shine
boys, and that Phyllis Caprio and Rolande Bou-
dreau are touring the New England States giving
violin and singing lessons. Congratulations are
certainly due Ioan Barrett. She is now the proud
mother of a basketball team.

and gone into business. He owns Paul's Smoke
Shop, where lack Hinkle is manager. Here under
the city briefs l see that ferry, Gerard, and Reggie

rette Factory. Maurice Theriault, the famous sky
writer, is Bob's means of advertising. Dave Mar-
quis and Bernard Smith now own the Nashua
Country Club, and Ed Gagnon is the professional
golf teacher. Down at the Club were seen Kathy
Raymond and Doris Ricard, census takers. Nor-
mand Ross was washing windows, while Bob
Tartalis was head hedge-trimmer. Betty Hendrick-
son is stationed at the club as information clerk.
limmy: Winnie Whipple drives a red fire
truck rescuing stray cats and dogs from trees, so
that they will not be caught by dog catcher, Dick
Duncan. Eleanor Marshall braves all kinds of wea-
ther so that she can serve the weary firefighters hot
coffee and doughnuts.
Nancy: Well, my old friend Shirley Esty, town
clerk of Hudson, writes me that Charlie Campbell
is now Mayor of Hudson. Many recent establish-
ments have opened up in Nashua, also. For
instance - Reginald Provencal manufactures
ReQrgie's Rugged Rugs. Norma Wendland is the
lady barber at a beauty salon for men. Ann Well-
man is manicurist, and Bob Nichols sells "Slick-um"
hair tonic. If the "Slick-um" doesn't work-use Ray
Hudon's bobby pins. They're guaranteed. Lillian
Pepin owns a yarn factory. The wool comes from
Theresa Turmel's sheep farm in Hudson, where
Richard Piscopo cards and spins the wool.
Yvonne: Lenny Guilmette owns a book shop
on Pearl Street, and he hired Norbert Lasalle as
his binder of books. Down in Boston, the bake bean
center, Eileen Pelletier operates a beanery with
her husband. Also in the big city can be found
Dolores Pike, owner of a large sewing school where
Mitzi jewell is the head fitter and has charge of
rickrack, while Eleanor Twardosky is presser. Next

Stanley: It says here that New Hampshire's
brilliant senator, john Gardikes, judged a pie

Hank hit the million dollar jackpot on the Get
Rich program, and is now inundated with gifts.

all hours of the day-he runs a taxi service and is

new Milton Berle-to the Avon Hotel where Cal-
vin Holt is doorman.
Nancy: Up and coming architects, Estelle Ri-

which Ruth Seymour is going to settle down. Sam
Simoneau contracted to do the moving, and Roland

"Wealth of Mind ls The Only True Wealth"
lOl-IN l. GARDIKES
We, the class of l949, are facing tonight a
momentous hour in our lives. lt is the hour of
separation which will denote the end of the first act
in the drama of our lives. Yet this solemn hour
marks the beginning of a new phase in our exist-
ence. We are about to enter a new environment.
Some of us will continue our studies in institutions
of higher learning. Others will face the trials and
toils of daily living in a complex and unstable
world. As the hour of fate is about to strike, we
desire to discern some landmarks of our future
with our limited and youthful insight. We are
certain that the love of adventure will lure us on
towards unseen places. Still, within our young
hearts appears the shadow of uncertainty as we
contemplate our future. The thought of what armor
we shall wear as we are about to enter the arena
of human struggle baffles us. At this moment, the
words of an ancient Greek thinker come to our
minds. "Wealth of mind is the only true wealth."
lust exactly what do we mean by saying that
wealth of mind is the only true Wealth? Since civili-
zation began, man has been the most curious
animal that ever lived. Even while man lived in
caves, he tried by different methods to increase his
knowledge in order to live better in the world. As
the Caveman was developing, because of his
curiosity in experimenting with different ideas, the
knowledge of man was increasing. Today, instead
of living in caves, instead of usinq Wood fOr fuel,
instead of using his feet or animals to travel, man
lives in houses, he uses coal or oil for fuel, he
travels by car or by airplane. lt took man thou-
sands of years to develop these ideas ot living
better in the world, but he gradually created a
better civilization. Man today knows, through the
experimentation of those who lived in the past,
how to use his knowledge to make houses, bridges,
medicine, cars, or even bombs, how to use his
knowledge to solve problems in politics or ethics,
how to associate with others, how to fulfill his hu-
man destiny. Those people from the past who
created this knowledge which we use today have
died, but the knowledge which they created is still
living and will continue to live. That is why as
our class motto says, wealth of mind, or knowledge,
is the only true wealth. lt is the only wealth which
man possesses and can never lose. As lohn Alfred
Longford once said, "The only wealth which will
not decay is knowledge," This knowledge which
our ancestors created has been handed down
through generations, and each generation in-
creased this wealth by adding new ideas or by
trying to perfect the old ones.
Some of us might consider money as true-
weallh, but he who is governed by this idea, he
the most valuable pos-
who considers money as
session which man has, is really mistaken. Money
should not be considered
living, because a person
can be happy in his life.
as essential to happy
with very little money
Also, a person can be
wealthy today with money, but tomorrow he may
lose everything. lf we recall the years of 1929 to
1932, during the great depression, we will find that
many millionares lost everything they had, and gi
the end some of them committed suicide. Is, then,
possession of money a true and permanent wealth?
Let us not be deceived by this idea. The purpose
of life is not merely to make money.
There are educated people today in the world
who fail to do things for the betterment of mankind.
They misuse the wealth of their knowledge: they
are looking out only for themselves, they are using
knowledge only for selfish ends. There are people
today who obtain knowledge from the universities,
but they do not live up to the ideals of their own
professions. They are trying through evil ways to
injure others, or to become masters of the fortunes
of others. A lawyer's profession is to look out for
iustice, but when through evil ways he does not
try to serve justice but on the contrary looks only
to obtain glory or money, then this person is only
trying to exploit his fellowmen. People who are
using knowledge for selfish ends are the people
who are failing today. They may seem to succeed
for a while, but a time will come when their selfish
motives are revealed and then they lose not only
the respect of others, but their own self respect. A
few years ago certain German leaders of science
formed the backbone of Nazism. By the misuse of
their knowledge and genius, they strove to help
Hitler conquer the world and become master of all
nations. Fortunately, their selfish purpose was not
attained because the world learned their evil aims
and thwarted them. During the German occupation
of Greece, I saw, l suffered under this policy of
Nazism. l am very glad to be back in the United
States where the wealth of knowledge is not so
Other people have also appeared in the histo-
ry of the world who have tried to use the wealth of
their knowledge in order to serve mankind. They
were the people who realized that a man in order
to live for himself has to live for others. They tried
not to destroy humanity but on the contrary to per-
fect it and teach their fellowmen to live better and
more happily. lf it were not for these people, the
knowledge which man possesses could not have
increased to such an extent as it has today. Nearly
one hundred years ago lived a great scientist
named Louis Pasteur. He had spent his lifetime
working on experiments to discover the bacterial
causes of disease. He served the world by using his
knowledge. He tried not to waste his time by
letting his knowledge pass away when he died,
and so left behind him new wealth of scientific
knowledge. Our late President Roosevelt showed a
great interest in social betterment. He brought
about legislation which would look after the inter-
ests of the common people. By using his political
skill and knowledge he put new ideas
for social betterment, ideas which still
affect our daily lives.
As we, the class of 1949, graduate from high
school, it will be our duty to use mental wealth in
every way we can for the betterment of mankind.
lt is our duty to serve the world, as it has served us
up to now. There are many ways in which we can
use our knowledge but let us consider just three
important methods by which we can do so:
The first purpose for which we graduates should
use the riches of our knowledge is in our chosen
careers. Here in high school some of us, in our
vocational courses, have gained a wealth of knowl-
edge that will help ug to become machinists,
draftsmen, stenographers, or store clerks. Others
have laid the foundations for our careers in the
various professions and fields of science. ln our
future lives we should make it clear to the world
that we are good workmen, good lawyers, good
businessmen. ln order to become successful in life,
this knowledge which we now possess should not
be used for selfish aims and evil purposes, but on
the contrary we should be honest men and work
for the betterment of mankind.
The second purpose for which we graduates
should use our knowledge is to choose capable
leaders for our nation. ln order to have a good,
strong country, a good, strong government is
needed, a government which will look out for the
interests of the people. lt is our duty as citizens to
choose leaders who are not interested merely in
making their own fortunes, who are not poor in
knowledge, who are not selfish. Today the country
ig involved in great problems such as unemploy-
ment and world peace. lf we elect to office people
who have no interest in such problems then we
may fall into great danger and the country may fall
into great destruction. We, the class of 1949, should
look forward to using the knowledge of American
democracy which we have gained during our
school years to prevent the country from falling
into a great catastrophe.
The third purpose for which we should use our
wealth of mind is to prevent prejudice. When l
studied United States History, l found out that here
in the United States certain races felt prejudice
against others. The Civil War between North
and South was an illustration of this. This war,
with slavery as its major cause, is but one passing
example of prejudice. Today in some places are
signs which read "restricted" and in other paces
we know that people of different races and color
have to live separately. This is a wrong attitude
which some people in the United States take. We,
the class of 1949, are ready to fight against pre-
judice. We are ready to show the people our toler-
ance which we have been taught throughout our
school years. We all belong to one great human
family, and we are all brothers, whether we differ
in language or in color of skin. We must realize
that the peace of the world and the happiness of all
nations and individuals rests upon the realization
of the brotherhood of man.
"Wealth of mind is the only true wealth."
These words should stand in our minds as the sym-
bol of the class. We should always remember
that in order to succeed in life this wealth of ours
should be used only for noble purposes. May God
help us in such a high endeavor.
Education in Cur World
What is an educated person? In the words
of Ramsay MacDonald, "An educated man is not
necessarily a learned man or a university man, but
a man with certain subtle spiritual qualities which
make him calm in adversity, happy when alone,
just in his dealings, rational and sane in all the
affairs of life." Because a person has graduated
from a college or university, or has a long list of
academic degrees hanging on the walls of his
office or home, he is not necessarily an educated
person. True, he may have many facts at his finger-
tipsg yet, unless he knows how to use these facts,
he contributes, little to society. A person who has
few facts at his disposal yet is able to solve a per-
plexing problem is of more use to his nation and
community than one who knows everything there
is to know about a subject, yet cannot solve a
problerri connected with the subject.
A good example of a truly educated person is
Thomas Alva Edison. He was not a well-schooled
man, as we use the term today. However, he used
the knowledge that he gained from his mother, a
school-teacher, and from his everyday experiences
to invent useful objects. Through such inventions as
the incandescent lamp and the phonograph, he
bettered the lot of his fellowman. He was self-taught,
yet he may be considered as having been better
educated than many graduates from the world's
leading universities who died without leaving their
mark on the world. One who uses his knowledge,
no matter how limited it is, for the improvement of
mankind-he is an educated man.
Today the nations of the world are face to face
with a great crisis. For many decades and after
every war, man has said, "There cannot be an-
other war. This must be the war to end all wars."
Now, we are preparing for another war. Why must
this go on? How long will it be before the nations
of the world can live together in peace? Peace will
come only when the majority of every race in the
world becomes educated. Not that we can stop
warg by teaching mathematics or grammar to the
natives of the South American or African jungles.
Rather, when every civilized man knows how to
find the resources to solve his everyday problems,
when man can solve economic and scientific prob-
lems, then and only then can true peace be es-
Tn-M . Wm.. .... , -,....,.
L . .
Une of tho greatest problems today is the Iron
Curtain. Gur government, even now, is trying to
find out how we can raise this curtain without
going to war. The persons who can solve this
problem will surely make their marks on the
history of mankind. Why cannot the young Ameri-
cans of our generation begin now to spread our
ideas throughout the world in exchange for the
ideas of others? Spread our political ideas! Spread
the knowledge which has been amassed in this
country around the world! To do this should be the
goal of the graduating classes of l949 of every
high school and college in this country. Then we
should really be educated persons and educators
as well. lt is a high goal! Can we achieve it? We
must achieve it!
In science, we find broad fields where educa-
tion and knowledge can be put to good use. Re-
member what Benjamin Disraeli said, "What art
was to the ancient world, science is to the modern."
Many young people will ask, "What is there left
to discover? There's nothing left for me to do."
Anyone who believes such a statement lacks am-
bition. Science is gtill young. There are so very
many things that can still be done with peace-
time uses of atomic power. The intricacies of cosmic
energy have yet to be investigated. Faster and
cheaper methods of obtaining rare elements are
still to be devised. These and many other improve-
ments are just waiting for an industrious and truly
thinking person to come along and discover them,
and that is where education comes in.
The person who will advance in science is the
person who can use what little knowledge is
available about some subjects, and, using this
limited knowledge, solves these scientific problems.
The solution of at least one perplexing problem
at some time during his life-that is what every
science student should strive for. lf every scientist
did this, science would advance by unbelievable
leaps and bounds. And as science advanced, so
would civilization. .
However, as civilization progresses, it becomes
more and more complex. Problems which our
ancestors never dreamed of have sprung up and
become vital to our lives. There are many problems
that affect our lives abnormally, mostly in our
relations with other people. We are constantly
worrying about Communism. Some of us have
reached the point where we are looking for a
Communist or fellow-traveler under every bed.
We are scared that our government may become
totalitarian. We read of violence and revolutions in
other parts of the world and blanch with fear,
wondering why people commit such atrocities and
whether they could happen here. Epictetus had
the answer centuries ago when he said, "Only the
educated are free." The educated may think as
they wish. The educated may solve, forstall, or
eliminate the problems of life. The educated are
unfettered, free, alive. Education is necessary for
freedom. There can be no greater argument in
favor of federal aid to education. There can be no
more persuasive argument in favor of attending
college. You may take that sentence and give it
any meaning you wish, but the bold fact still re-
mains, "Only the educated are free."
Since true education is needed if a people is
to be free and lead normal, healthy lives, the ques-
tion arises, is our school system educating today's
children? We think it is! When the schools of today
are compared with those of yesterday, the improve-
ment is apparent. ln early England, a person was
considered educated poorly or well, depending on
how thoroughly he knew Latin or Greek. Even in
this country, 'in the Revolutionary period, mathe-
matics was considered of use only to commercial
people. Education was thought of as an ornament
for the privileged, not a useful tool for all.
Then schools improved. A greater variety of
courses was introduced. The attendance of every
boy and girl was required. As a result, new in-
ventions flooded the market, and the United States
went to its place as one of the educational and
scientific leaders of the world. Yes, education has
improved. It has improved to such an extent, that
now almost anyone may choose the career he
wishes and attend a school which trains him
especially for that career. An excellent barometer
of the educational level of a country is the number
of diversified schools in proportion to the popula-
tion. Our schools help us to find and excell in the
position for which we are best suited. That is the
reason that Americans or American-taught persons
are noted for their ability throughout the world.
Although the average educational level of our
nation is high, there are still large undeveloped
areas, where there is one school for a large terri-
tory, a one-room school, heated by one old stove,
cared for by one teacher, who teaches all Qrades,
all subjects. Also, segregation is still practiced in
the South. Take West Memphis, Arkansas, as an
example. There, a new, modern school was recently
built for the white students. Now, nine hundred
white students have two fine schools. ln November,
1947, the Negro school caught fire. One half of it
was destroyed. No new school has been built for
the one thousand Negro students.
There is an unsolved problem in education
that is a challenge to our generation. Improvement
of the educational opportunities of all races
throughout the world-why not add this as another
goal of the graduating classes of l949? But, let us
clean our own closets before we begin on someone
Some of us who are sitting on this stage tonight
are going on to colleges and universities to gather a
still greater wealth of knowledge. Those who are
realize that the world is becoming highly special-
ized and that high school is only a foundation upon
which an ever-growing pyramid of knowledge may
be built. Some of us are asking ourselves, "How
can l be sure of getting a sound education, one that
will prepare me for the future?" There are two
views on this subject. Dickens, favoring a special-
ized education, criticized "a smattering of every-
thing, and a knowledge of nothing." On the other
hand, Benjamin Disraeli, criticizing too much
specialization, commented, "a man always study-
ing one subject will view the general affairs of the
world through the colored prism of his own
There is a happy medium between these two
outlooks and many institutions of higher learning
present good examples of this happy medium. The
prime purpose of these institutions is the prepara-
tion of young men and women in a specialized
field of work. Yet, all courses have a closely in-
tegrated program of related subjects. Thus, their
graduates not only are prepared in a specialized
field, but they are also acquainted with other
subjects. Specialized knowledge in one field,
general knowledge in many others-today, that is
the best possible education.
These diplomas that we shall receive tonight
can mean one of two things. They can mean that
we have sat in a chair in a schoolroom for twelve
years, or they can mean that a solid foundation of
knowledge has been laid. We hope it is the latter.
Let each one resolve to continue to amass
knowledge in his chosen field of endeavor. This
does not mean that we should all go on to college:
for some, that is impossible. Rather, we should be-
come thoroughly acquainted with our work. We
should endeavor to improve our tools, our condi-
tions. We should be ready to meet and solve any
problem which may arise, for that is the mark of
an educated man. Whatever we do, let us not stop
learning. Remember the old Chinese proverb:
"Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance
is to drop back." We must not stop rowing.
Miss Morrison, Mr. Keefe, and Members of the
Board of Education:
We, the graduating class of 1949, thank you
for providing us with good textbooks, with good
teachers. Through these, our foundation of educa-
tion has been laid. lt is now up to us. You have
done your part, and done it well. For this, we
Mr. Morley and Members of the Faculty:
You have instilled in us the spirit of learning.
Because of your efforts, we have become familiar
with challenging ideas. We may now go into the
world saying, "I learned this subject from that
teacher," not merely, "That teacher taught me this
subject." You have given us differing points of
view. You have helped Us solve problems rather
than recite memorized facts. We have been with
you thirty hours a week, thirty-six weeks a year,
and during these hours you treated us like human
beings rather than like squeaky machines that
must be oiled and pumped periodically. We thank
you and hope that we shall not fail your expecta-
tions of us. :
Because of you, we are on this stage this
evening. You have helped us in our periods of
sorrow and trouble. Whenever we needed some-
thing, we looked to you and you gave unselfishly.
The school may exert great influences on a child's
existence, but it is still the home which moulds our
personalities, our future. There is not enough money
on earth to pay for the love and care that you have
showered upon us. There is only one way that we
may hope to repay you even slightly. That is to
live up to your wishes and hopes. We must not
fail you. We cannot fail you!
Do you remember the first day that we ever
attended school? We were young, carefree, happy,
interested only in what we would do after school.
Now, as far as the public is concerned, we have
finished our education. We are on our own. We
may go out and try to make our fortune, or we
may continue to study for a definite vocation.
Whatever we do, we should be wise to remember
the words of Aristotle: "The roots of education are
bitter, but the fruit is sweet." We have had our
bitter moments, Now, if we act wisely, we may
gather the sweet fruit. This is our last night with
each other, with our teachers. Now, we are the
sculptors of our own lives. Are we good sculptors?
Time will tell.
