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 DEDICATIO 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. -li 5 -' '-i:'....'- y -I.-5-'L-'1 :EEE -:ig -117 'fir-" - fi Om' Tjjl, ' ' Lg li F.

BRYANT Business Manager NANCY RICE Secretary 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.

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 Richard Chacos. 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. RICHARD CIESLUKEWICZ GRADUATION ISSUE THESTUDE T CCUNCH 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- ary IQ47. 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. IANET DOLLOFF PAGE FIFTY-ONE THE BAND 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 phrasing. 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- strations of the various instruments. The following graduates received letters for band: Alpheus Beals, lr., Donald Bruce, Phyllis Caprio, Richard Carter, Laura Fraser, Paul Gibson, Raymond Hackett, Patricia Iones, Hope losephson, Alvin A. Lucier. Ir., Leo Mathieu, David Marquis, Richard McCostis, Roland McLoud, Eugene Mile lette, Robert L. O'Leary, Paul Ouellette.

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 Dube, Irene Eessenden, Theresa Einucan, Anastasia Cweorgo- poulos, leanne lewett, Hope losephson, Robert Lavallee, Claudette Lefjage, Alvin A. Lucier, lr., Harriet MacDuf'tie, 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. ALVIN A. LUCIER, lr. TUSITALA CAMERA CLUB 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 color-slide shows. All the members of the club are grateful to Miss Dionne and Miss Hussey for their help, and will always call to mind the enloyable Camera Club meeting at Nashua Senior lrligh. ROBERT 1-1. BUNDY GRADUATION ISSUE DRAMATICS CLUB 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- gian. 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 tion committee were lane Barry and Nancy Dickey. 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 enioyable. NANCY RICE PAGE FIFTY-THREE LATIN CLUB 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' gram entitled A Fall oi Troy. Among those tflkillq PGY1 Wele Leonard Spillane and script writer lane Barry. The club owes its success to Miss Doris S. Barnes, Us sponsor, who has put so much time into it, and to te member who have ce-operated in everY WGY' ROSEMARY KEHOE PAGE FIFTY-FOUR FUTURE I-ICMEMAKERS 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 club. 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. BARBARA TARRY TUsrTAr.A CHEERLEADERS 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 and basketball. 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. PRISCILLA CUTTER JLTIORTUIDCRCBS CLUB 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 sponsor. 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- Ship.

The Iunior Varsity team consisted of Ieck Crisp, Bob Wrenn, Chris Hellas, Ioe Whelton, Bob Gordon, 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, Bob Wrenn, lack Crisp, Ioe Whelton, Chris Hellas, and Paul Ouellette. Our players entered the State Tournament with an ex- cellent record. They defeated Central in the quarter finals but then lost to Concord in the semi-finals. With the return of eight regulars from the 1947-48 team, the prospects this year were bright for a championship season. Bob Gordon, Dusty Dutton, Buddy Lemay, lack Crisp, Ioe Whelton, Bob Wrenn, Chris Hellas, and Paul Ouellette composed the 1948-49 team, which finished the season with a 15-l record. ln the first annual Merrimack Valley Conference Tournament, Nashua defeated Lawrence and Central on successive nights to win the trophy. toe Whelton brought honors to the school by being chosen the most sports- man-like man of this tournament. The following weekend in the State Tournament the team de- feated Dover in the quarter finals, avenged their only defeat by trimming Concord 43-395 and won the championship the following night r tr -fag A State Championship Basketball Team. by a 33-23 victory over Central. Three Nashua boys, Buddy Lemay, Bob Gordon, and Dusty Dutton, were chosen for the All State Tourna- Team. ln the New England Tournament at Boston, the team lost out to a tall New Britain, Con- necticut, team in the quarter-finals, Buddy Le- may was chosen as a member of the New Eng- land Tournament Team. HOBEHT LEBLANC, Mgr. BASEBALL 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- chanced.

ALBERT LEMAY FOOTBALL 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 Hinkle. 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. RICHARD BOULEY, Mgr. 1 TENNIS Under the coaching of Marco Scheer, the 1948 edition of Nashua HiQ1'1'S 19111115 19CU'T1 10014 to the courts with the footsteps of its two un- 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 PAGE SIXTY l 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 LaRoche. RAYMOND HACKETT GOLF 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.

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. MARIOBIE BUBNHAM GIRLS' TENNIS 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 played. PAGE SIXTY-Two In the fall of 1948 a large group of girls parti- cipated in two intramural tournaments which were supervised by Miss McW'eeney. A junior was the champion, with joanne Kean runner-up, and Harriet MacDuHie was the winner of the consola- tion tournament. Seniors on the 1949 team are joanne Kean, and Harriet MacDuffie. IOANNE KEAN GIRLS' BASKETBALL Several of the girls of our class have taken part in basketball the past three yars. Marjorie Burnham, Claudette Cote, Mary jane Hickey, Rita Lajoie, juli- anne Moreau, Dolores Pike, and Marjorie Whitte- more attended practice regularly throughout these years. Among those who played for one or two years are jeanne jewett, Patricia jones, joanna Chiotinos, Betty Dobens, Dolores Dutton, Louise Evans, joanne Kean, Dorothy Palmer, and Peggy Bits. 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 also found time to walk away with the intramural championship.

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.

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 PAGE SEVENTY-FOUR O R A T O R 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 TUSITALA 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 tragically misused. 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. into effect exist and 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 GRADUATION ISSUE 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. PAGE SEVENTY-FIVE VAIEDICTORY Education in Cur World RICHARD CIESLUKIEWICZ 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- tablished. PAGE SEVENTY-SIX Tn-M . Wm.. .... , -,....,. L . . V A 5 I. E j E 5 D I f C T C R I A N 2 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. TUSITALA 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 GRADUATION ISSUE 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 else's. 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 atmosphere." 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 PAGE SEVENTY-SEVEN 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 thank you. 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, PAGE SEVENTY-EIGHT 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. : Parents: 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! Classmates: 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. 'V TUSITQLA NWN ' I Q. Wpflutographs -,, . L 1 Q QQ?
