H Informal pictures on page 48 through courtesy of Fotomart FOREWORD PAGE SIX From our Senior Play was born the theme for the 1950 Tusitala, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay." Little did we realize when we entered Nashua High School what these three years would mean to us. They were to be for us days of fun, of laughter, homework, exams, dances, proms, sports, and assemblies. In the fall of 1947 we entered Nashua High School as sopho- mores. We were young, we had no worldly cares, and we found our- selves thrilled at entering a new and larger school. In our sophomore year we saw the birth of the Student Council, but did not realize then how rapidly this organization would progress. Our junior year brought us the junior prom, for many of us our first formal. As responsibilities were placed upon us, we matured rapidly, became more considerate of others, and at the beginning of our senior year were ready to assume the role of upper classmen. Yet throughout our Senior Play, the an- nouncing of the Upper Quarter, the senior prom, and graduation plans, we did not lose our youthful spirit and gaiety. Now, as the last days of our school life come to a close, we can look back and say that those days of study and school activities were for us the best years of our lives. We had more reason than recent classes to be gay, for there was no war enveloping our country. Peace had at least temporarily been restored throughout the world, and our boys were fortunate in being able to finish their education without being called to serve their coun- try. Under the capable guidance of our headmaster and faculty, we were trained in high ideals and moral principles: we gained from them wis- dom which developed talents needed by us to take up our responsibilities as future citizens of the world. Out of our three years at Nashua High School, this Tusitala is written to remind us of the days when indeed "0ur Hearts Were Young and Gay." TUSITALA DEDICATIO gs 5 is ig 5 4 63.141 ti me in A i i 'N IN MEMCRIAM The class of 1950 will long remember Miss Grace E. Campbell, a member of our faculty for fortyftwo years, who died on April 9, 1950, after a brief illness. She had taught until the last of March in spite of her failing health. Miss Campbell was a teacher devoted to her profession, and many students turned to her for guidance and advice. She was never too busy to give us counsel in any way that she could. We who have come under Miss Campbell's influence are better prepared to go out into the world, and we deeply appreciate all she did for us. Her friendliness and wonderful sense of humor will never be forgotten, and our deep regret is that she did not live long enough to be with us during our graduation exercises. Requiescat in Pace! GRADUATION ISSUE PAGE SEVEN K ' 1 'T EDMUND M. KEEFE During our three years at Nashua High School, we grew to love and respect our beloved headmaster. It was his thoughtrulness, Consi- deration, and sense of humor that made him popular with the entire student hody. We turned to him for advice, and whenever a problem arose he weighed hoth sides of the issue hefore passing judgment. He showed no partialitv-a rare quality in any man.

Our annual activities were supplemented by several new functions. Members of the 1950 class who went to Iacksonville, Florida, with the team in l946 are lohn Parker, David Huber, loan Raymond, Robert Plarnondon, and Milton Martin. In 1948 We accompanied our team to the Manning Bowl. We also traveled to Boston for such occasions as the "Birdie" Tebbetts' Day and a Braves Field Opening Day. ln our senior year we visited the Hunt Home, and held a recital for the Nashua Grange. All-State Festival members from the band in 1949 were Guertin, Bailey, Martin, and Huber. This year's Festival participants were Malcolm Bailey, Donald Brault, Donald Couture, Antoine Guertin, lr., David Huber, Milton Martin, lohn Parker, Robert Plamondon, Conrad Roy, and lames Walch. Those of us who will study music in college are David Huber, Milton Martin, and Conrad Boy. Seniors who are to receive their letters this year are Malcolm Bailev, Paul Bing- ham, Donald Brault, Carol Cable, Donald Couture, Antoine Guertin, lr. David Huber, Alfred Kudoiis, lvlilton Martin, Robert Maynard, Roland Noyes, lohn Parker, Eugene Piwowarski, Robert Piamondon.

Among the concerts of the year l949- l95U were the Palm Sunday concert, the Lenten Service at Pilgrim Church, the an- nual Christmas Assembly, The Woman's Club Program, and the program given at the Hudson Convent. This year the glee club's repertoire consisted of "Battle Hymn Of Republic", "You'll Never Walk Alone", "The Marches Of Peace", "Incline Thine Ear, Oh Lordn, "Were you There", "God Of Our Fathers", "Whe'er You 'Walk", "Song of the Russian N 1 lvleadow Lands", "Pants Angelicus", "Coun- try Style", and a specially memorable piece "Twas The Night Before Christmas". Novelty numbers were "Kde Su Kravy Moie", and "Simon The Fisherman", a Negro story song. The senior members of the glee club this year were as follows: Charles Anctil, Raymond Barrette, Robert Dionne, Donald Gilbert, Carolyn Hall, Claire Lachance, Roland La- France, Ottilie Langmaid, Robert Lavallee, Iaclyn Ledoux. lacqueline Messier, Ieannine Morin, Loren Morrill, Olive North- rup, Robert Plamondon, Georgia Prutsalis, Conrad Roy, Iune Shaw, Robert Simoneau, Shirley Smith, Sophie Theoharis, and Carolyn Wells. All of the members of the glee club are grateful to "Pop" Wilson for his patience and understanding and the great work he has done for all of us in music. I UNE L. SHAW TUSITALA CHEERLEADERS The spark plug of all cheering ses- sions during both football and basketball games has been the cheerleaders, among whom l950 was well represented. The aim of all cheerleaders has been to pep up the students during the games and to introduce them to new and better cheers every year. Cheerleaders from our class in their iunior and senior year were loan Prichard, Phyllis Tobias, Virginia Stanium, and Lorraine Vaillancourt. They were se- lected by a committee of teachers headed by Mr, Paguette. After the team had won the New Hampshire State Class A Tournament in l949, the cheerleaders travelled to Boston with the players and a group of faithful followers to cheer their hearts out for a losing team. ln their senior year the cheerleaders had a wonderful time during both football and basketball seasons cheering for their team. During basketball season the team was followed by the cheerleaders and a group of Nashua fans to the New Hampshire State Tournament, where Nashua reached the semi-finals. Despite defeats the team encountered, the cheerleaders continued to cheer as though Nashua had won every game. LORRAINE VAILLANCOURT JUNIOR RED CROSS CLUB The Iunior Red Cross Club, organized last year, is a relatively new club in our school. Its main purpose is to help others less fortunate than we. Last year our teacher- sponsor was Miss Trudel, and this year it has been under the supervision of Mr. Murauckas. Several interesting projects were completed this year, including Thanksgiving Day baskets which were given to iamilies ot Displaced Persons in Nashua. Also the organi- zation did a great deal when the Toronto Exchange Group from Toronto, Canada, visited us early in November. Mary Lee Flather, Toiiy Guertin, and Mona Beach acted as hosts to three of the group. Nancy Pike, Shirley Smith, and Patricia French wrote articles which have been published in the Iunior Red Cross Iournul. This is a national magazine, and thousands of other boys and GRADUATION ISSUE i girls sent in similar articles from all over the United States from which these were selected. Many other projects have also been completed. Movies have been shown and discussions held. All in all, tthe club has been interesting and active, and has given us a chance to help others and become better members of our community. MONA BEACH PAGE FIFTY-ON E THE TATTLER The class of 1950 can well be proud of its participation in the running ot our school magazine. We have been respon- sible for many changes that we believe have helped The Tcxttlex. The only representative in our sophomore year was ludy Cook, as Sophomore Literary Editor, but lunior year found nine of our classmates on the staft. Those serving were the following: Nancy Gatcomb, loan Prichard, lames Walch, Carolyn Hall, Patricia French, Iames Vtfalsh, Roland Bosse, Mary Lee Flather, and Iudy Cook. As iuniors we carried on our department duties and served on dance committees, but our great opportunity came in i949-1950. Then, headed by ludy Cook and James Walsh, Editor-in-Chief and Assistant Editor Mary Doyle, Helen Cross, Debbi Atherton, Earle Lupien, loan Prichard, Virginia Bordeau, lames Vlfalch, Conrad Roy. Shirley Barr, Betty Norton, Normand LaBonte, Betty Herrck. Mary Desmarais, lane Potry, and Sylviane Marquis reported to the first staff meeting full of pep and ideas. which we are afraid rather startled our advisors. The first change was made at the first meeting when we agreed to have only Home Room Business Agents instead cf both Reporters and Business Agents. After the first issue was completed, a group cf us visited the Telegraph, and received helpful suggestions from Mr. Dobens and Mr. Spendlove. Since this visit we have pepped up the Alumni Column by print- ing interviews with college students, added more spice to the Exchange Department by describing customs of other schools, and by predictions instead of re-hashing of sports events. A new feature was introduced--an interview with Mr. Keefe, in which ideas and tips are given to the student body from the principals office. Outside of the regular running :if the magazine we co-operated with the Scho- lastic Press Association by waging a school-wide campaign to collect Swan Soap Wrappers, to be sent, through CARE, to needy people. We also sponsored two dances to raise funds for bigger and better issues. Vtlhen, after working hard, we heard such remarks as "A swell ma- gazine", then indeed our "hearts were young and gay." IUDY COOK PAGE FI FTY-TWO l TI-IE STUDENT COUNCIL Those of us in the class of '50 wha have served on the Student Council have hearts that are "young and gay", but still seriously interested in representing the students as well as possible, and in acting as a tie between the administration and the student. Although the faculty would perhaps call us rash and tactless rather than "young and gay", through these characteristics of ours we have man- aged in three years among many other things to adopt a constitution, to initiate an annual pep rally before the Manchester Central football game and an annual co- lorful semi-formal Christmas Hop, to grant two one hundred dollar scholarships, to hold a basketball dance, to charter new clubs, to run a contest for a school song, and to present talent assemblies and school slngs to the students. Our class is the only class that has grown up with the Council, for the birth of the Council came in our sophomore year-and we have seen it through to success as a permanent school organization. These were our representatives: Soph- ornore year-Donald Young, Shirley Barr: Iunior year-Shin ley Barr, Iohn Parker ttreasurerl, loan Prichard tsecretarylg Senior year-loan Prichard lpresidentl, Conrad Roy lvice- presidentl, Theresa Renaud tsecretaryl, and Iohn Parker ttreasurerl. A Since the Council is representative ot three classes- not just ours -, we alone cannot claim all the credit for success, but we can be proud of our contribution. lOAN PRICHARD TUSITALA FUTURE FARMERS of AMERICA The Future Farmers of America are made up of groups of boys studying vocational agriculture. From the very begin- ning, the boys enrolled in such courses in the various states felt a spirit of comradeship because of their background of country lite and their desire tc enter farming. A group was recently formed to draw up a constitution for the Future Farmers of America and launch it as a national organization. Each year since then the club has grown by tremendous leaps and bounds, until today all states in the United States. also Hawaii and Puerto Rico, have charters. The Nashua chapter was organized November 4, 1949, under the guidance of Mr. Max Gowen, agricultural teacher. The Senior members of this club were Roland Moreau, presi- detri, and Robert Mooney, repor'er. Members of this club learned to conduct public meetings through actual participation, io buy and sell co-operatively, to finance themselves, to solve their own problems, and to assume ' civic responsibilities. Although this club obviously places more emphasis on youth activities and responsibilities than on gaiety, the meet- ings and trips have been enioyed by all. Recently the officers of our club, accom- panied by Mr. Gowen, attended a state F.F.A. conference on leadership training, in Laconia. Among the speakers was Mr. Earl H. Little, supervisor of high school agriculture throughout New Hampshire. A committee is now working on a program of work for the club, to include a truck garden project, clipping of cows on nearby farms, repairing farm ma- chinery, and other activities which will be of benefit to the club and community. ROLAND MOREAU GRADUATION Issue -ww.qv:vwK-.i:i.,wv ss FUTURE HOMEMAKERS The local chapfer of Future Home- makers of America was organized in the latter part of our sophomore year. Our class was represented that year by Betty Herrick as treasurer, also Louise Brouarcl, Claire Lachance, Rachel Beaulieu, Albina Waiswilos, Pauline Belanger, and Gloria Prince. ln our junior year, Albina Waiswilos and Betty Herrick represented us as vice- president and secretary respectively. ln September of '49 the Nashua chap- ter oi this national organization was again re-organized with Miss Temple as advisor. After a few meetings, club officers were elected, among whom were two seniors. Mary Doyle was chosen president, and Sylviane Marquis was elected secretary. Other senior girls participating in this clulo were Louise Brouard, Shirley Hop- wood, Shirley Smith, Albina '.'J'aiswilos, and Betty Herrick. In the tall, a group oi the girls. with Miss Temple, Mrs. Raymond Hackett, and Mrs, Temple, attended the fall state- wide meeting cf the F.H.A. at Vilas High School in Alstead. There the Nashua Chap'ei' was well represented with Miss Temple as state advisor, and Betty Herrick as sfate secretary. Other activities for the year included business meetings. a Christmas party, initiation, a talent show, Valentine party and dance. The spring all-state meeting was held in Nashua, where a business meeting was held in the morning which included election and installation of officers, also selection of a delegate to the National Convention which will be held in Kansas City, Missouri. Throughout the day a talent show was held, and lunch was served to about two hundred members. We of the club wish to thank Miss Temple, our advisor, for her time, effort, and helpful guidance throughout the year. MARY DOYLE PAGE FIFTY-THREE LATIN CLUB The Latin students of the class of 1950 are very proud that they played a part in starting the Latin Club which was organized the year we were Iuniors. Some of the members of our class have contributed much to the club. ludy Cook was our first vice-president. Virginia Bordeau and Debbi Atherton assisted in the writing of "The Fall of Troy"-a radio skit which the club presented over station WOTW last year-and Iudy Cook, Don Young, and Iimmy Vtfalsh played roles in the production. This year we devoted a meeting to recording the skit and played the record- ing back to the other members. We shall -all remember the meeting at which we watched a Roman Banquet, complete with costumes, slaves, a dancing girl, and e food. This feast showed the differences bteween a mcdern dinner party and a dinner party two thousand years ago. At one meeting we played games using Latin and read Latin myths. A movie showing the old Roman ruins in Britain, many of which have been there since Ceasar's conquest of Gaul, was inter- esting as well as educational. Through the Latin Club, we tried to present the entertain- ing side of Latin. The members of the club were enthusiastic and co-operative, and the program committees worked hard to make each meeting of interest to everyone. Because of the interest and co-operation, the future ct the club seems assured. DEBORAH ATHERTON PAGE FIFTY-FOUR THE FRENCH CLUB The French Club, organized in 1949, is the second of Nashua High School's language clubs. The club proved quite attractive and a lage number of pupils attended the first meet- ing, held in the fall of 1949, for the organization and election of officers. At this meeting a committee was appointed to plan the next meeting, and members decided that the club should meet one Monday each month. Miss Ruth Milan offered her services as advisor to the group. The second meeting featured cx French movie showing scenes in both rural and urban areas in France, which gave the students an idea of life there. Some of the officers and a few other willing participants dressed as French characters to give the club members some first-hand knowledge of how French people dress. This meeting also drew a large number of interested students. Charades, a skit, and a play were features of the third meeting. The pupils who participated did an excellent job and the students were amused and pleased with the performance. The senior mem- bers of the club, Constance Bosse and Patricia French, helped to plan this meet- ing. This new club, though still in its embryonic stage this year, is expected to grow in membership and activities in the years to come. PATRICIA FRENCH TUSITALA CAMERA CLUB The Camera Club, one of the first clubs organized by our new Student Coun- cil in 1948, has long proven its success. During that very first year there were not any members from this graduating class who were officers, but among the members were Donald Gilbert, Olive Northrup, Ro- land Noyes, Walter Phinney, lr., and lane Potry. During the year, many contests were held, and several outings were en- joyed. During the school year 1948-1949, the only officer elected from the class of 1950 was the secretary, lane Potry. Interest- ing meetings were held twice a month with many demonstrations by the presi- dent and vice-president. An cuting to Canobie Lake was enioyed at the end of the year. 1--W The club year of 1949-1950 had three officers from this graduating class: president, lane Potryg secretary, Mary Wagnerg and treasurer, James Kilbane, Ir. Membership had grown to ten seniors, and twenty sophomores and juniors. The Club had its first darkroom built by the active members under the careful supervision of Mr. loseph Ciccolo. Weekly meetings were held, and every other week Mr. Edelstein, manager of the Fotornart, came to instruct the members on various phases of photography. As the future of youth lies greatly in the camera arts, we are glad to know that photography as a hobby is becom- ing so popular among the students, and that the Camera Club is becoming one of the most popular organizations at Nashua High School. JANE POTHY GRADUATION ISSUE DRAMATICS CLUB Since the Nashua High School Drarnatics Club was re-es- tablished in 1946, it has been one of the foremost clubs of the school. The many members have gained entertainment, instruction, and an outlet for their natural dramatic talents because of the club's varied program. The success of the club has been very much dependent upon our sponsor, Mis.. Elizabeth Cornell, who has proven herself a devoted worker, interesting teacher of dramatics, and a real friencl. The club has presented many plays and skits for the en- joyment of its own members as well as for the school and other groups. Periodically the club has sponsored a meeting at which an educational film a demonstration, or a lecture concerning chamatics has been featured. Among the plays and skits presented this year were "Snakes etc.", written by a former Nashua High School studentg a dramatization of "A Visit From Saint Nick"g "The Death of the Lighthousekeepern, a pantcrnine presented at the Talent Assem- blyg "The Great Gift", a play dealing with the invention of the printing press: and "The Nine Lives of Emily", featurei at an assembly. Two other club activities this year were a record session at which "Robin Hood" was played, and a movie entitled "Baclio Broadcasting Today". Besides these activities the club has now as in the past lent support for the good cf thc school in several ways. The Senior Play cast and other activities have drawn upon club members. Nashua I-liah's participation in the New Hampshire Drama Festival was made possible by the club's contribution to the expenses involved. A number of senior members took part in Nashua's entry, Christopher Morley's "Rehearsal". This year's president has been Eliza- beth Norton, and other Senior officers have been Eleanor Chapin, Treasurer, and Mary Adams, Program Chairman.

INSNND aw .- nm FOOTBALL The 1947 season with its record of seven wins, three losses, and two ties laid Q wonder- ful foundation for the members of 1950 who were then in the prime of their football careers. Bouch- ard and Leconte 'earned starting positions, while Dobrowolski and Liamos shared duties with the first stringers on the '47 team. For the team's fine display on the gridiron that season, it was invited to play a post-season game with Lynn Classical. Although Nashua lost, great experience was gained. Liamos and Leconte were honored by being selected as members of the New Hampshire Kiwanis All-Star team, which played a benefit charity game against the Massachusetts Kiwanis All- Stars in Dover, New Hampshire. The latter was also chosen on the All-State team, and for the second consecutive year the State title was in the possession of Nashua High School. ln 1948, Dionne, Ferris, Hall, Lafrance, Tru- del, Waterhouse, and Young had seen little action the previous year, and, therefore, were lacking in experience. The team traveled to Port- land to face its first defeat by one point. That disadvantageous beginning affected the larger part of the schedule. Yet improvement showed itself in the later stages of the season. ln 1949, the first five games were executed in the same manner as those of the championship teams that "Buzz" Harvey has produced. Then the team was hampered by injuries. The teams Nashua High met from then on were given stiff opposition, but the team was unable to defeat its opponents: nevertheless, Dobrowol- ski, Liarnos, and Leconte gained first-team GRADUATION Issue 1949 Football Squad berths in the All-State team, and Bouchard and Hall were selected on the second team. The selection of five Nashua players for All-State honors from the '50 class, certainly proves that the 1949 team was an outstanding one, even though its record showed defeats and losses. NORMAN lLuckyl LECONTE BASEBALL ln the spring of 1947 Coach Harvey com- menced baseball practice, and two freshmen, Butch Bouchard and lake Riviere, managed to make the squad. The following year Bob Dionne, Rene loyal, and Spike Raymond in addition to Butch Bouchard and lake Riviere represented the Class of 1950. In the year of 1949 seven boys represented our class: Bob Dionne, Spike Raymond, Butch Bouchard, Earle Lupien, Rene loyal, and Bob Nadeau. We had a fairly successful season, winning seventy- five per cent of our games. This year we will have a veteran-studded squad. "Bob" Dionne, a hard-hitter and a steady fielder, will handle the position of third base: Butch Bouchard, speedball artist, will be one of the mainstays on our mound staff: "Spike" Raymond, diminutive catcher with a rifle arm, will be behind the plate: Earle Lupien, speedy fielder and dependable hitter, will cover second base: Rene loyal, only returning out- fielder from last year's team, will cover center field: Bob Nadeau, curvesball artist, will be a reliable relief pitcher. With the return of these and plus the retum of the student manager, Willie Hall, the prospects for a successful sea- son are bright. "lAKE" RIVIERE PAGE FIFTY-NINE BASKETBALL The 1947-48 Varsity found only one repre- sentative from the class ot 1950, Basil "Ke1ly" Liamos. That year the varsity ended with a record of ten wins and seven losses. The lu- nior Varsity consisted of Iames McKeon, Robert Bouchard, Millard Caswell, Simon Ulcickas, Gerald Riviere, David Brown, Richard Welch, Ronald Boucher, Harry Anagnost, Fabian Ku- chinski, and Antoine Guertin, Ir. The 1948-49 Varsity and lunior Varsity teams were very successful. The Varsity won both the Merrimack Valley Tournament and the New Hampshire State Tournament, ending the season with twenty wins and two losses. T he Class of 1950 was represented by Basil Liamos, Simon Ulcickas, Harry Anagnost, Robert Bou- chard, and Antoine Guertin, Ir. The Iunior Varsity went through the regular season unde- feated, and won the N. H. State Amateur Tournament. Members of the Iunior Varsity included lames McKeon, Millard Caswell, Ron- ald Boucher, and lake Riviere. Iames McKeon made the All-Tournament team. The 1949-50 team ended its season with a record of nine victories and six defeats. The team reached the finals of the Merrimack Val- ley Conference Tourney by defeating Man- chester Central, but lost to Lowell in the finals. The team also went to the State Tourney, and after a win over Berlin was defeated in the semi-finals by Portsmouth. The team, headed by Captain Basil "Kelly" Liamos, included the following seniors: Iames McKeon, Simon Ul- cickas, Millard Caswell, Gerald Riviere, David Brown, and Richard Welch. SIMON ULCICKAS THE GOLF TEAM During our threeyear stay at Nashua High School, the Class of 1950 has been very for- tunate in having at least one representative on each golf team from 1948 through 1950. 'W' e had but one member on the impressive team of 1948, which had a record of seven wins and one loss. This lone member was David Huber, who played a very important part in the suc- cess of that team. The class was far more fortunate in 1949, when we had three very potent men on the eight man roster: Richard Welch, David Huber, and Iames Conlin. The team did not have quite so good a season as in 1948, but we were able to salvage a record of five wins, three losses, and one tie. Iames Conlin was unbeat- en until the Class C finals at the state tourn- ament, held in Rochester, New Hampshire, in which we placed third among all the teams in the state. We are looking forward to a much more successful season in 1950. The prospects are very bright, since four veterans are returning from the 1949 squad. Three seniors form a nucleus for this 1950 Club, with our tentative PAGE SIXTY schedule for 1950 including such teams as Concord, Phillips Exeter Academy, Portsmouth. New Hampton Prep School, and Lawrence Academy of Groton. RICHARD F. WELCH, Ir. DAVID E. HUBER CROSS-COUNTRY Cross-country once again has been added to the Nashua High School sports roster after an absence of nearly a decade. Most of the candidates who reported to Coach Horace Herlihy in the fall of 1949 were veter- ans of the '49 spring track team. Dick Neil- son was elected captain of the Purple harriers, and Roger Pelletier took over the duties of manager. In our first meet on October 12. we piled up a lopsided victory over the Lawrence hill-and- dalers by a score of 24 to 35. Dick Neilson of Nashua scored second, and Barrette, Caswell, and Fahey scored fourth, fifth, and sixth respec- tively. Manchester West, our next opponent, was soundly trounced 18 to 35 over our own new course. Captain Dick Neilson, leading the Nashua contingent across the finish line, established a record by running the two and one-tenth mile course in 12:26. Ronald Bouch- er and Bob Hackett added to the Purple scoring in this meet. In the first triangular meet in Manchester, we scored 28 points to Manches- ter Ceniral's 38 and Manchester West's 57. Captain Dick Neilson, although boxed in at the beginning of this race, managed to finish sixth despite badly gashed knees. By emerging victor in the next meet against Lowell, the Nashua team became unofficial Merrimack Valley Conference Champions. Our fifth and last dual meet was won against a crack Lawrence Central Catholic team 27 to 28. Captain Dick Neilson scored first for the Purple, and the next three runners, Ray Barrette, Millard Caswell, and lerry Fahey, once again added the scoring punch to insure the Nashua victory. The representatives selected for the state meet at Durham were Captain Dick Neil- son, Ray Barrette, Millard Caswell, Ronald Boucher, and Ieny Fahey. Our team finished fifth but performed creditably against stiff com- petition. The senior members of this team would like nothing better than to see the Pur- ple harriers dominate the state meet at Dur- ham, New Hampshire, in the years to come. IERRY FAHEY TRACK TEAM During the 1948 track season the team com- peted in three meets, the Kiwanis meet at La- conia, the Keene Rotary meet, and the State meet at Durham. Under the excellent coach- ing of Mr. Ciccolo, the team made fair show- ings. Arthur Trudel earned his letter that year. Mr. Herlihy assumed coaching responsibi- lities in 1949 and he issued a call for candidates on March 30. Fitchburg won the first meet, TUSITALA but Trudel cmd Raymond Barrette turned in fine performances. Concord won the next meet. Girard Guilmain won the iavelin event and Trudel earned the name "purple jet". Three members of 1950, Robert Dionne, Barrette, and Trudel competed in the Clipper Relays and they brought home the Governor Dale trophy plus gold medals for winning the 440 yard relay and taking third in the 880 yard relay. We won over Manchester West by the score 72 to 18 in a home meet. Members of the class of 1950, Gleneck, Doyle, Dobens, Barrette, Guilmain, Cas- well, Trudel, and Neilson, contributed the majority of points. Scoring 28 points, Nashua took third place in the first Merrimack Valley Conference meet held at Lawrence on May 25. Caswell missed first place by inches in a thrilling mile race. The season closed with Nashua taking fifth place in a field of nine class A competitors at the State meet held at Durham. Many senior trackmen plus the fine coaching of Mr. Herlihy make prospects look bright for a winning track team in 1950. RICHARD NEILSON GIRLS' TENNIS In the spring of 1948 a girls' tennis tournament was organized under the capable leadership of Miss Anne McWeeney. This tournament was di- vided into two groups, the beginners and the play- ers. The beginners group was made up of girls who had no previous experience in playing tennis, and the players group of girls who had played tennis before. A silver tennis ball was to be award- ed to the winner of each group. The tournament was carried out by means of elimination, the one remaining undefeated being the winner. Due to lack of time, the tournament was not finished that spring but was continued in the fall. The winner of the players' group was Connie Bosse. ln the spring of 1949 a group of girls composed of sophomores, juniors, and seniors decided to or- ganize a girls' tennis team. They played Manches- ter Central girls' tennis team at Manchester, losing in a close game. Plans were then made with Man- chester for a return game at home. Although the Nashua girls did their utmost in trying to win the match, the Manchester girls won. The senior girls on the team were Ioan Prichard and Connie Bosse. CONSTANCE. BOSSE GIRLS' BASKETBALL Basketball has been one of the few sports the Nashua High School girls of 1950 have had a chance to enjoy. During our sophomore and junior years, we have had two nights of practice a week, usually falling on Tuesday and Thursday. Our coach, Mr. Ciccolo, with the help of some of the girls arranged several games with Rivier College. Manchester West, McGaw Institute, Senior Y Girls, Nashua Business College, and several others. Besides these, we had regular intramural games between the different classes in school. This gave the inex- perienced girls Q chance to acquire confidence play- GRADUATION Issue ..-f.,.,.,m- TENNIS Nashua High's 1950 racket men took to the courts in April under the coaching of Mr. Marco Scheer in hopes of attaining a perfect record. Last year's team suffered greatly from lack of experience and depth. However, during last years season the Na- shua racketmen obtained valuable experience from which they will benefit greatly for this year.

Last year's team suffered setbacks by Assumption College of Worcester, Fitchburg, and Manchester Central, however, the boys will be out to avenge these setbacks in May. The team members are even- ly matched for this season and the starting lineup will be subject to changes as the season progresses. This season will be the last for many boys, and spirit is high in hopes of making it a successful one. ROBERT HACKETT ing for higher stakes. During our senior year, we were unfortunately not able to organize a team because of lack of super- vision. However, a few girls managed to get to- gether and retain the spirit of sportsmanship. These girls played the Hudson Alumnae and St. Aloysius High School. The team was composed of the fol- lowing senior girls who came regularly to practice: Mary Desmarais, Charlotte Cooke, Marion Nute, Phyllis Tobias, Terry Desrosiers, loan Garside, Lu- cille Stevens, Connie Bosse, and Nancy Pike. NANCY PIKE SOFTBALL In the spring of our sophomore year the sports- minded girls had an opportunity to use their abili- ties on the softball diamond. Under the direction of Mr. Marandos, intramural teams were formed, each class sponsoring q team. With our capable pitcher, Constance Bosse, backed by Charlotte Cooke, Theresa Renaud, Nancy Pike, Charlotte Trombly, Ioan Garside, Pauline Belanger, Ioan Dion, Ioan Prichard, and Mary Desmarais, we of the class of 1950 put our hearts into each game and finished the season on top, becoming champions by winning all but one intramural game. For this achievement the team were awarded gold charms. Two intramural games were played each week. At the end of the season, Mr. Marandos chose an all-star team. Representing the sophomores were Constance Bosse, Charlotte Cooke, Ioan Garside, and Mary Desmarais. This all-star team played the Hudson Iunior High School's team and was on the winning end of a lopsided score. During our junior and senior years, this sport was discontinued, but many of us would like to see it returned to the active list of girls' sports.

And look who the guides are, Richard I-lelie and Robert Dube. Conrad: Why is everyone looking over the edge? llohn walks away to inquire!

Dorothy: Who's the man dusting off those first editions? lohnny: I know that fellow - my old chemistry classmate, Alex Ferris. Raay: Let's move along. We haven't got all day. There's a speaker on the sidewalk over there. Why, it's Dick Danforth, standing on a soap box. Mary Lee: What's he shouting? Conrad: Sounds like "Must we do away with snail racing on ping-pong tables?" Mary Lee: Roger Desboisbriand, Colin Dever- eux, Harold Armstrong, Eleanor Chapin, Nason Fessenden, and LeBaeles Hills are all taken up with his smooth talk. Iohnny: Let's get away before a larger crowd forms. Supposing we all have our fortunes told by that palmist over there. Conrad: What does Glenda Potter say is going to happen to us today? lohnny: She says, "Look to the skies for danger." Ray: Well, I don't think I want mine read. How would you girls like some daffodils? Here's a vendor. Thank you, Ierry Fahey. lDorothy has strayed from the crowd! Conrad: What are you reading over there, Dot?

Ray: Feature of the evening is Rene Pelletier on the cymbals. Conrad: The musical score was composed by Russell Dwyer and William Ford. Mary Lee: Look out for that bucket! lAll jump back! Iohnny: Wow! lust missed us. That must be what the palmist meant when she said look to the sky for danger. Drothy: David White certainly is careless with his window-washing pails. Ray: Thai was a close shave. After that ordeal, I think we all need one of Bob Laquerre's atomacolas. There's his stand right over there. PAGE SEVENTY-ONE yen-ur' rr- Conrad: This sure is refreshing stuff. Mary Lee: What are all those bicycles doing on this street? Dorothy: This must be the route of the inter- national cross country bike races. Look! Dick Neil- son is leading the race just as he did the high school track team. Iohnny: Millard Caswell is a close second. Conrad: Norman Leconte seems to be having trouble with his bike, so Robert McKinley is holding up the rear wheel for him. Ray: That seems to be the last of them. I hear that the Olympic tennis finals are to be played here today. The courts are just down on the next block. Iohn: Sounds interesting. Let's take it in. Scene VII Tennis Court Ray: That ball surely is moving fast. What's that girl doing over there? Dorothy: Why, it's Albina 'Waiswilos dusting the bottom of the players' sneakers with resin. Mary Lee: That was a good serve Connie Bosse just got in. Conrad: Yes, and loanne Merriman made a terrific triple swivel back hand return. Iohn: I think the referees called that one wrong. No wonder - Carl Nadeau and Gary Waterhouse were watching that cute little French girl over there instead of the ball. Ray: They sure are keeping Robert Kraft busy chasing those tennis balls. Mary Lee: Look at all the celebrities watching the match from their private boxes. There's Alice Tacy, wife of the Cool-Aide millionaire, and Patricia Montrone, recently chosen Miss America. She's with the runner-up, Dorothy Bergeron. Dorothy: Why look, Irving Iustason and Christ- ine Manelas, the ballet stars, are being seen together again. Conrad: lt's getting late. Let's ask this police- man, Robert Mansur, how to get to our hotel. - He says it's just down the street past Ioan Garside's gas station.

Ray: Sit dovm here on the couch. Conrad: Ask the bellboY, Ierry Kierstead, to get a glass of water-she looks pale to me. PAG E SEVENTY-TWO Dorothy: That must be quite a distinguished person coming in the front door-look at all the people around him. john: Yes, I recognize him-it's Normand La- Bonte, the publisher, and that little man holding his pipe is Emery Daly. Mary Lee: All those international news photo- graphers are snqpping his picture-Look, there among them are foe Boulanger and lane Potry. Hay: Those correspondents interviewing him are Arthur Perreault and Donald Gilbert. Dorothy: To change the subject slightly-I hear that Cedric Haskell is also here in Paris to play Arthur Bruneau for the chess championship of the world. Iohn: Yeh, and I heard that joan Prichard Won top award on "lt Pays to Be Ignorant." Conrad: What's all that shouting? Ray: Oh, it's the bellboy, William Supry, paging that woman politician, Mary Korontjis, for a tele- phone call. Mary Lee: Guess I'll take a look at this maga- zine here. Dorothy: Say, isn't that Annabelle Kimball on the cover? Iohn: It surely is! Here's an advertisement for Homer Grooms' hair tonic-it's illustrated by john Taylor. Conrad: They say that man of distinction, Walter Phinney, uses this stuff. Ray: The feature article was written by Lillian Petropoulos-it's about that house party that Iames Lamb had. Mary Lee: It says the high-light of the evening occurred when Ernie Memos played a trumpet solo while standing on his hands, assisted by Marilyn Campbell, the lion tamer. Dorothy: The caterer for the evening was Donald St. Peter-I bet he was a sensation. Conrad: Noted guests were Bob Hackett and his charming wife, the former Lorraine Lucier: David Ioimes Williams, the banker, and David Brown, the author of How to Play Baseball in Your Own Cellar. Iohn: Also Helen Cross, famous author and lecturer on Early Roman History: Mary Doyle, the short story writer: and General Gordon Moore of the French Foreign Legion, who escorted Miss Ieannine Gagnon, pianist. Mary Lee: I'm getting tired. Why don't you get our keys from Robert Gillette, the desk clerk? Ray: That's a good idea. We'll need a good night's rest with the convention beginning tomorrow. Scene IX Several days later at airport Ichn: I told you girls to hurry! Now we've missed the plazne. There's probably a long wait until the next one. TUSITALA Dorothy: Well it's your fault. If you hadn't taken so long trying on tuxedos at Maurice Prince's haber- dashery we would have made it. Ray: Yes, but I couldn't resist that smooth sales talk of Normand Procter's. Conrad: You spent twice as much time as we did, trying on hats at Phyllis Powers' millinery salon. Mary Lee: Yes, I bought Cecile Morin's new creation, called "Chicken Feather Holiday." Dorothy: Speaking of purchases, I bought the most wonderful perfume at Maurice Vigneault's new shop. Iohn: Well, let's check cur reservations at the ticket office. Conrad: Theresa Bilodeau is buying a ticket home. She's been vacationing on the Riviera with Elaine Fuller, Betty Ann Sydeman, and Constance Conery after a busy year with their modeling firm in New York. Ray: Simon Ulcickas just told me that our reser- vations have been changed to a flight leaving in two hours. Our stewardess, by the way, will be Iacqueline Messier. Dorothy: Let's spend some time relaxing in the lounge. Iohn: There's a television set over there. Why don't we tum it on? Scene X A Television Studio Announcer: ilohnl This is Channel 74, Television Station WGY New York. And now Soft-Seat Lawn and Deck Chairs, Hammocks and Porch Swings, presents Pearson Drupe with his "People in the News" program. Pearson Drupe: iRayl This is Pearson Drupe in Vfashington. The whole country was shocked today at the sudden tragic disappearance of Professor Arthur Edwards Trudel, renowned expert and leading authority on violets. He had written many books on violets, most of them illustrated by the noted artist Earle Vassar. According to witnesses at the scene, Prof- essor Trudel was bending over a particularly rare species of African violet when-he suddenly van- ished into thin air. Among the witness were fellow- biologists Eileen Dupont, Ronald Thibodeau, and Marion Nute. In the Senate today a bill for the prevention of necking was debated and passed. Senator Virginia Bordeau, the leading advocate of the bill, says she expects President Gerald Rolfe to sign the bill mak- ing it a law of the land. Senator Bordeau's chief op- ponent was Senator Rene loyal of Nevada, who says he thinks the custom quaint. The invention of a gadget which enables people to walk on water caused quite a stir today. The gadget is called the aquaambulator and its inven- tor is Emmanuel Stergiou. It is to be manufactured GRADUATION ISSUE by Gerald Riviere, millionaire manufacturer. Harvard University announced its new presi- dent last night at a meeting of the board of trustees. The new president, Lawrence Corey, is to succeed Robert Seguin, retired. The leading brain surgeon in America, Miss Mary Desmarais, is to perform a unique experiment tomorrow. Miss Desmarais hopes to transplant the brain of a monkey to the head of a dog. Word was received today from the expedition in South America which is penetrating to the head- waters of the Orinoco in hopes of discovering new forms of insect life. Mr. Norman C. Nicols and his wife, the former Elaine Esty, are heading the expedi- tion. Gerard Laquerre, their radio operator, has been keeping the outside world in touch with the expedition. In Chicago today a notorious killer, was ar- rested. It seems that Miss Carolyn Hall, a secretary, spotted his face, having seen it on a wanted poster in a local post office. Miss Hall quickly called a nearby policewoman, who followed the criminal, finally trapping him in a dark atleyway. The police- woman was Sergeant Corrine Bromley of the Chica- go force. "I'd Rather Be Happy", that smash hit play which has run six months on Broadway, is expected to run another half year. General Manager Paul St. Laurent said today. The play is based upon a book by Bertha Bilodeau and was revised for pre- sentation as a play by Pauline Belanger and Iune Dupont. The leading players, Ioan Treynowich and Eleanor Cote, have been keeping audiences roaring. That's the news for tonight. This is Pearson Drupe bidding you goodnight. Listen in tomorrow when "People In the News" will be presented again. Announcer llohnl Hello, ladies-well, here we are again to gain new knowledge in that great art which everybody likes, children need, husbands appreciate, and wo- men pride themselves on - cooking. Speaking of cooking, ladies, with Pepper's Salt the natural flavor of your food comes out naturally. Pepper's Salt is a special blend created in the Marianthy Pipilangas Cooking Laboratories. Remember, ladies, Mother Hubbard always uses Pepper's Salt recipes. Mother Hubbard iDorothyl Good morning, ladies-here we are again with Mother Hubbard's Cooking Hints. Well, today I received a letter from Miss Helen Barrett telling me how much she enjoyed that recipe I gave you last week-you remember the one for liver stew, sent in by our most ardent listener, Fernand Nadeau? I have received several letters lately asking for hints on how to clean the egg off breakfast dishes left until night time. I've heard of an excellent product for this purpose put out by the Lillian Tarnu- lonis soap company-it may be purchased for a PAG E SEVENTY-THREE small sum at any of Mary Wagner's chain stores. Now our recipe for today was sent by Patricia French. The recipe Miss French has submitted is for Hungarian goulash. Get out all your pots and pans, ladies. Are we ready now? Here we go. First we add these fried bananas which I have already prepared. Remember, only Ianet Bergeron's vegetable oil must be used for frying bananas with best results. Now add a can of Louise Beaulieu's Spunky Tomato Sauce, a dash of Pepper's Salt, and a bottle of Lucille Stevens' horse radish. Are you with me, ladies? All caught up? Good. Now, add one pound of Harriet Memos' espe- cially prepared canned ham and tuna mixture. Mix well-now, just another little dash of Pepper's Salt to add the desired flavor. Now, cook the whole mixture in Shirley Barr's new cold-heat pressure cooker. That's all there is to it, ladies. If you would like a framed copy of today's recipe, simply send the small sum of one dime to my secretary, Dorraine St. Onge, care of this station. Also for the added sum of one dollar we will send you that wonderful new cook book by Anastasia Tomou and Lorraine Vaillancourt. Well, that's all the time we have today, ladies. Listen tomorrow for more helpful hints and a new recipe sent by Ieannine Morin. Good-bye and good cooking. Announcer Uohni Good afternoon, sports fans. The makers of Lucky Strikeback cigarettes present at this time the former all-star cleat-cleaner of baseball, Bump Hap- ley. Some cigarettes advertise mildness. Some say doctors smoke them. Some say try their 90-day throat test. What do we say? We say, "If Bump Hapley can smoke them, so can you." So here he is Bump Hapley, with his sports roundup. Bump Hapley IConradl Good afternoon. The Red Balks dropped an- other heartbreaker today, 18 to 4. They did show plenty of base-reaching power, however, as Nancy Gatcomb hit a home run, Claire Desmarais argued with the umpire, and Betty Herrick was hit by four pitched balls. Walter Sargent was effective on the mound. He didn't get q speck of dirt on the rubber. He did, however, allow three home runs to Lucille Marquis. Priscilla Lemery almost collided with a flying saucer yesterday. She was pole vaulting again. Betty Norton lost her way while running the BAA Marathon some time ago. At last report she was two weeks out of St. Louis. Plucky girl. PAGE SEVENTY-FOUR A severe mishap occured in the Yankee game today. Calvin Williamson, the centerfielder, was hoisted in the air by a group of rabid fans aiding him to catch the ball. They all let go after the catch and Cal fell and sprained his thumb. These fans were reported to be Doris Dobens, Robert Parker, Constance Landry, and Roland Parker. Carol Cable won the international checkers championship last week. She defeated Ruth York. Robert Nadeau has finally cleared six feet in the high jump. Flash-Donald Malenfant has stolen twenty- seven bases. What do they call it-basomania? Do umpires Norma Dufoe, Nancy Marchand, Irene Des- rosiers, and Richard Lones know anything about this? lames Francis Walsh refused to compete in the Memorial Day foot race some time ago. He has his shoes bleached before each race and-you guessed it-his laundress, Charlotte Cooke, was visiting relatives in Hudson at the time. The race was won by Iulia Ann Aroska, who will probably be running for dog catcher in the fall. Irving Alexander establishes many marks in the tennis world. He spreads lime on the boundary lines. In a recent potato-sack race, Rachel Beaulieu was awarded a sportsmanship badge for giving Mrs. Ralph LeClaire's baby her bottle as she went by. Mrs. Leclaire is the former Connie Bouchard.

Announcer Ilohnl Hello, all you wonderful people! We're back again from Hollywood with Loretta Larson. The sponsors of this program would like to thank all you people who made it possible for Loretta Larson to be voted the nosiest person on television in the April contest of Personalities in Television.-The Dainty, Ditty, Droopy, Dry, Diaper Department of Dacy's on 6th Avenue presents at this time our Miss Nosiest Person on Television-Miss Larson. Loretta Larson fMary Leel Thank you for a lovely introduction. Well, people, as you all know, I attended lean Ackerrnan's party last night. I collected quite a lot of interesting tidbits to tell you. First of all, Robert Bouchard told me his romance with Virginia Stanium is definitely off as of last week. lt seems that at a luncheon date with Francis Brunelle Friday, the couple had TUSITALA a spat over who got the most fan mail in one day. The manager of the inn, Richard Doyle, was quite concerned. Stanley Eaton, the famous boxer, was telling me that Virginia was so upset that the next day she married her childhood sweetheart, Patrick Finnigan. Speaking of marriages, Ray Lemerise and Gloria McGuire finally took the fatal plunge this moming. At the Little San Diego Church, Robert Richardson, the bride's ex-husband, gave Gloria away. Paul Raymond, the juniper tree scientist, finally got up courage to ask Nancy Esson for a date. No one was surprised, as Paul has worshipped her from afar for ten Years. Later on in the evening while I was speaking to Albert Cantara, the producer, I heard his new picture, Hanqed. has hit a snag. His star, Gloria Peters, refused to go through the love scene with Ronald Roy because his red tie clashed with her pink hair ribbon. Since neither one will give in, Albert is quite distressed. Barbara Middleston said her press conference with Nancy Pike and Doris Pelletier was a failure because her fiance, Roger Dionne, had an annoying way of shouting to her to fly away with him instantly. Malcolm Bailey can't decide whether he likes Pauline Poulin or Mary Adams better. Since he can't decide, he's been taking both girls out together. An interesting arrangement, don't you think? The new play, Honor for Harry. directed by Lee Sutherland, is finally going to appear in town. Ever since we've heard of its filming, we've all been waiting to see the wonderful picture starring Gloria Prince. Well, my time is growing short, so I'll have to say goodbye for now. Remember, for the news around Hollywood, tune in Loretta Larson. Be back tomorrow. Ta Ta! Announcer Uohnl This brings to a close the present broadcasting of WGY, channel 74, TV, New York. This is Dale "Droopy" Drugmuffen, your smiling announcer, hoping to see you here tomorrow. Scene XI Airport Dorothy: Good heavens! It's getting latel Ray: Don't tell me we're going to miss this plane, too. Iohnny: Hurry up, Mary Lee. Conrad: Hurry up, everyone. . Mary Lee: Someone hold my bundles! I ca:n't find my passport.

We shall be free to do as we please, to se- cure for ourselves the type of life we wish to lead. For some of us this means seeking q higher educa- tion, more study in colleges and universities far removed from our familiar way of life. For others it means apprenticeship, learning a trade. For still others it means going directly into employment and immediately taking on the burden of self-support. Regardless of what we intend to do, however, or where we go, after tonight our lives will be some- what changed. The change will be from a life of dependence to one of relative independence. To some extent we shall be free: free not only of school authority, but also of parental authority. With freedom - duty. Let us now apply our motto to ourselves. An interesting parallel can be'drawn between the beginning of our adult free- dom and the freedom of our nation. ln 1776, when the leaders of the thirteen colonies signed the Decla- ration of Independence, they had two specific duties. They had first of all to win their freedom. To do this they drew up the Articles of Confederation uniting the colonies. Under these Articles they were able to throw off the cloak of European oppres- sion. Freedom was finally theirs. After the war was over, after Brandywine and Valley Forge were memories, and freedom was finally theirs, then came the second duty, preserv- ing it. "Those who expect to reap the blessing of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of sup- porting it." Led on by these words of Thomas Paine, the authors of the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation realized that in order to preserve their newly acquired principles of li- berty, equality, and justice, the power-greedy states had a duty to surrender enough of their freedom as individuals to form a strong union. They realized that the old confederation must give way to a new, more powerful federation. Out of this realization came our Constitution, the most revolutionary the world had heard of, a govemment of the people and by the people to protect the peoples' inalienable right, freedom. We who sit here on this stage have inherited this constitution, and along with it the freedom which it cherishes. When we leave this. stage and PAGE SEVENTY-Six O R A T O R this building, we must take on the same duty that our nation's founders had to take on. By our twelve years of education we have won our freedom as adults. Now, as new citizens, we have the duty of surrendering some of our personal freedom as individuals to preserve this democratic freedom and to unite against the evils of our day. How shall we fulfill this obligation? ln several ways. First we must acquire a full realization of what freedom is. Freedom is the right for all of us to have certain fundamental human rights. These rights do not come to us as the result of belonging to a certain race, religion, or class. They are simply inherent in every man just because he is a man. Freedom is not the right for every individual to do just as he pleases. That right we must surrender. Freedom is, however, the right for every man to control the limitations put upon him through demo- cratic government. Secondly, to preserve our freedom and unite against current evils, we must adhere to these prin- ciples in our everyday lives. Prejudice, one of democracy's chief dangers, arises directly out of a lack of understanding of what freedom is. When someone denies to another any of his fundamental human rights, whether, because of his belief, reli- gion, or race, he dislikes him, disagrees with him, or is jealous of him, that is prejudice. Whenever a Negro is denied the right to vote in the primaries, whenever some radical is abused by a crowd for speaking or distributing handbills, whenever a city council sets up residence restrictions in certain areas, that is prejudice. It is our duty to fight prejudice, Tusn'Al.A for by so doing we protect our freedom. Today, in these troubled times of cold wars, of starvation in Asia, civil war in China, and per- secution behind the iron curtain, Communism looms the chief threat to our freedom. Throughout our country there is a general feeling of dislike and dis- trust, not only for those known as Reds, but even for those thought to be slightly pink. How should we rid ourselves of these Communists within our bor- ders whom most of us consider a threat to our se- curity? Should we ban them from our society: out- law the Communist party and forbid its meetings? Definitely not. Whenever we deprive anyone of his rights of peaceable assembly and his freedom of speech, even though we have marked him as un-A- merican we ourselves are being even more un-Amen ican. Such action is prejudice, and on prejudice Com- munism thrives. Every time one of Paul Robeson's concerts is broken up, every time a riot prevents the delivery of a speech by Wallace, the Commu- nist party in America grows a little stronger. What Communists want is attention, for every demon- stration helps them point out to the world some weakness of democracy. How can we rightly defend ourselves from these radicals in America today? Abraham Lincoln once said, "Our reliance is in the love of liberty which God has planted in our bosoms. Our defense is in the preservation of the spirit which prizes liberty as the heritage of all men, in all lands, everywhere." In order to defend our liberty we must take up this true spirit of liberty. It is our duty to extend to every- one within our boundaries an equal share of our freedom. We must, therefore, allow radicals to meet and speak, but do everything in our power not to create the disturbance which they are look- ing for, and, above all, to correct the condition which they rightly criticize. If We do not like what they do or say, we should simply not listen, ignore them. At the same time, we as educated citizens should demonstrate the strength of democracy by expres- sing our own opinion, and by voting wisely to elect responsible officials who will make certain that all American citizens have their civil liberties. It is not enough, however, just to preserve free- dom within our own boundaries. In the last thirty- five years we have had to fight two bloody wars to defend it from outside aggression. We all remem- ber too well this last war. Our fathers and brothers fought in it. Indeed, many of them died in it. What is our duty toward them, those who died to preserve our freedom from outside aggression? Chaplain Roland B. Gittelsohn expressed it in his address of dedication at a Marine cemetery on Iwo lima. "These men," he said, "have done their job well. They have paid the ghastly price of freedom. If that GRADUATION ISSUE freedom be once again lost, as it was after the last war, the unforgivable blame will be ours, not theirs." How can we of the younger generation help prevent a third world war? Shall we advocate rearmament with hydrogen bombs and set up Ame- rica as the military guardian of peace? Many people think that we should, for at the time it seems to be the only possible solution. We believe, how- ever, that there is another solution, not an immediate one, but a long-range solution. We believe that wars start in the minds of men: and, therefore, in order to prevent wars we must get at their causes in the minds of men. Since the beginning of man- kind, the goal of humanity has been freedom from fear, want, and slavery. Much of the world has been free from slavery, but very little of it from fear and want. In the words of Rabbi Gittelsohn, we must "not be satisfied with those wide extremes of poverty and wealth in which the seeds of another war can breed." It is our duty, therefore, to attempt to secure those same fundamental human rights which we now enioy for all the people on the face of the earth. We believe that the threat of war will be a thing of the past only when fear, want, and slavery have been conquered. A After the First World War the League of Nations was set up for this purpose. It failed, partially be- cause the United States was unwilling to surrender any of its sovereignty to such an organization. After the Second World War the United Nations was created. In some ways this has not failed. The Human Rights Commission has succeeded in pro- ducing a remarkable Declaration of Human Rights. The Relief and Rehabilitation Association has ren- dered three billion dollars in aid to needy persons in thirty-nine countries. The Educational, Scien- tific, and Cultural Organization is seeking to recon- struct educational facilities in the war-torn countries of Europe and Asia: it is fighting illiteracy by spon- soring schcols for refugee people and those in back- ward areasy and it is promoting educational co- operation among all countries. The United Nations has also succeeded in setting up a new democracy, The United States of Indonesia. All these are long- range methods of preventing wars. In other ways the United Nations has failed. It is not a true democracy and, therefore, its member nations refuse to surrender to it any of their sove- reignty. Time after time the Security Council is pre- vented from reaching a conclusion by the veto. Because of the lack of cooperation among the "Big Five," the large immediate problems, the control ot armaments and atomic energy, and the realiza- tion of a world army, have thus far remained un- solved. This lack of cooperation has caused a general lack of interest and enthusiasm for the Continued on page 80 PAGE SEVENTY-SEVEN VALEDICTURY THE DIGNITY GF MAN IoAN PRICHARD The preamble to the Charter of the United Nations begins with these words: "We, the peoples of the United Nations, determined to save succeed- ing generations from the scourge of War, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, and in the dignity and worth of the human person-". These phrases l think are the focus of our lives now. ln the mind of each one of us, as we now graduate, is an international feeling-a feeling that it is not just Nashua, nor New Hampshire, nor the United States, but the world that is important. It is difficult to explain this international feeling. Perhaps it means the words "the United States and-", not "the United States versus". lt means a row of flags headed by a blue flag, the United Nations flag, rather than our own banner flying alone. lt means a desire to go to Europe and Asia, Africa and South America, to live with the Poles and the French, the Czechs and the Russians, and to understand them. It means loving music and dancing and painting, and appreciating science, for these are the true intemational languages of expression. lt means feeling a responsibilty for the right way of think- ing about the peaceful use of atomic energy, be- cause this is of 'such international concern. It means a feeling of oneness with all other nations and people of the world. This is Q new feeling in the world. Thinking in international terms of unity and understanding is something we of the class of '50 are familiar with: but because it was virtually unknown to our grandparents, there was a first World War, and because not enough of our parents felt it, the League of Nations failed. This inexpli- cable intemational feeling of each one of us is brought to a focus by the first six Words in the pre- amble to the UN Charter: "We, the peoples of the United Nations." What strong and beautiful words! "We, the peoples of the United Nations." But with the words "scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind" the preamble focuses another feeling in us, closely allied to the international feeling, yet sharply contrasted against it. Indirectly through books and movies, the experiences of fathers and older brothers, we have felt the scourge of two World Wars. We know that war is wrong.

"Reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights" -these next words in the preamble to the Charter focus another feeling in us as we graduate. This is a feeling which seems common to youth every- where in all times-idealism. Not only do We reaf- firm faith in fundamental human rights, but many of us also want to go out and do something to make these rights a reality for every living person. Cer- tainly this is an ideal, an ideal of people young in age or young in heart, people who have a goal which they believe is possible of attainment. These fundamental human rights hardly need to be listed. We have heard them hundreds of times-the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, freedom of worship, freedom from fear, freedom from want, freedom of speech, the right to justice, the right of assembly-we know them all. Thev have been written in the Magna Carta, in our Declaration of Independence, in our Bill of Rights, and in the French Declaration of the Rights of Man. Now they have been written in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights passed unanimously by the General Assem- TUSITALA bly of the United Nations on December 10, 1948. Yes, they have been written, but we youth are realistic enough to know that they are not an accom- plished fact, and we are idealistic enough to want to work to make them a reality and to believe that we of our generation can do it. Why is it that we desire every human person to have fundamental rights? Why do we believe that we can make fundamental rights a reality? The answers to these questions are found in the cli- mactic words of the preamble: "dignity and worth of the human person". What exactly does this phrase mean-"dignity and worth of the human person"? It means the greatness of man. Man is great biolo- gically. Even to one who has had only a high school course in biology, the perfection of our or- ganism and the awe-inspiring miracle of life itself is proof of the grealness of man. But man is still much greater than a wonderful animal. His dig- nity and worth come from his ability to think, to remember, to learn, to create, and make decisions. Sometimes man does not think right. Sometimes he does not remember the right things. Sometimes he does not bother to learn. Sometimes he des- troys rather than creates. Sometimes he makes the wrong decision. But because man is able to do these things aright, he has dignity and worth. Every thoughtful person must believe in the dignity and worth of every single human person, whether rich or poor, intelligent or stupid, black or white, Hindu or Christian. lt is only by having this faith in the goodness of man that we can have one world, free of all barriers, be they political, religious, racial, or national. lust in the last ten years, we have seen many human rights trampled on. Think of the human rights violated in this country because of prejudice. Think of the millions of up-rooted families and displaced persons in the war-tom countries, who do not have freedom from fear and want. Think of the annihilation of the Ger- man and Polish Iews, because not enough people believed in the worth of every human being. These things have happened because of lack of faith in the dignity of every man. Do we want such things to continue to happen? No, for we believe in the dignity of mankind as a whole, and in the dignity of every man, woman, and child as an individual. We want every person to have fundamental rights, for man is so great that he deserves these rights. We believe mankind is great enough to make these fund- amental rights a reality for all. Here are we, the class of 1950, graduating in a time of tribulation and trouble the whole world through. We have these ideals high above us. They seem so far away. What can we do? We must be optimists, practical idealists. We must have faith in the essential goodness and ability of man. GRADUATION ISSUE What one of us has not felt this faith arise when we have seen a squirmy, red baby or a happy, peaceful old man, or when we have heard a great symphony, or seen a movie like "Battleground", or heard about a scientific discovery concerning cancer or heart disease? A book like Hiroshima shows the dignity of the common person, the Iapanese common person. The feature "Life in These United States" in the Reader's Digest shows the common sense, the kindness, the goodness of people who might be our neighbors next door, or the lady op- posite us in the bus, or the clerk at the dimestore counter. ln this era of pessimism, our optimistic influence may seem to be only one stitch in the huge flag of ideals come true, but added to all the other stitches of thoughtful men everywhere, our influence will not seem so small. lf every other graduating class in the Union had this same optimism and faith, think of the influence we should all exert in this pessimistic world. We must love life and all man- kind everywhere. We must find joy in doing the little everyday things we know we should do just because they are the right things, not because of a possible reward or punishment. lt is doubtful that our class will march three hundred and twelve strong on a crusade towards our ideals. No, it is far more important that each of us leads Q good useful life by himself, influencing those with whom he comes in contact, and always showing his faith in the dignity and worth of man. lf we refuse to laugh at dialect and preiudiced iokes, if we always respect the opinion of the other fellow, no matter how much we disagree with him, if we realize our own worth and always dare to express our deepest convictions a:nd beliefs, then we shall be doing the little everyday things that show our faith in man. If we have this philosophy, we cannot fail our ideals. Let us all believe in the dignity and worth of the human person as do the members of the General Assembly of the United Nations! We, the graduat- ing class of 1950, hope to stay always young in heart, and no matter what may happen, to keep our faith in man and in God. Mr. Danforth and Members of the Board of Education: We, the graduating class of 1950, thank you with all our hearts for your part in helping us ascend these stairs tonight. You have provided us with equipment and a faculty widely known for its ex- cellence. We probably do not realize yet just how much you have done for usp therefore we do not know how to thank you. Your deepest thanks will come as we, the class of '50, assume more than our share of the responsibility of good American citizens. Mr. Keefe and Members of the Faculty: You a:re proud of us tonight. We, too, are proud of you, but we also feel humble before you. We PAGE SEVENTY-NINE want to live up to your expectations of us, for be- cause you have faith in the dignity of man, you have faith in us. You have given us a foundation from which we are going on to college, to special- ized schools, to the defense forces of our country, or to jobs. This foundation, more commonly known as education, has not been just an accumulation of facts. It has taught us how to keep on learning all our lives, even without teachers and textbooks, and it has inspired many of us to seek further education. It has made us firm believers in democracy. It has been a demonstration of faith in the goodness of man. Parents: It is to you that we find it hardest to express our thanks, and by you that they are the most deserved. We find it hard to tell you that we will always re- member your understanding, your trust in us, and the many things-large and small-that you have done for us, which we have taken for granted. Many times in the past twelve years, we thought that we -gfx CLASS ORATION, Continued: United Nations as a whole among all its members. However, we of the next generation should continue to support the United Nations in the light of what it has accomplished rather than of what it has not. Moreover, at the same time we should work towards the organization and realization of a true world feder- ation. We believe that such an organization will be able to meet those issues which the United Nations has failed to solve. We realize that such an achieve- ment will require much co-operation on the part of all nations of the world. We know that this goal of one world cannot be realized immediately, but it is our duty to help formulate public opinion to the point where our country will take the lead in surren- dering sufficient sovereignty to make possible a true world government. would remember our occasional squabbles with you, your strictness, or your refusals to our all-impor- tant requests. Now we have forgotten these things, and we remember what you have done so that we could be here tonight. Yes, it is because of you that we are here on the stage, and because of you, we have a faith in man. Maybe you feel like shed- ding cr few private tears of pride. We do, too, be- cause this is a great moment of our lives, another one of those moments of growing up that separates us more from you. Please know how much we thank you. Classmates: This night is almost exactly the mid-point of the twentieth century. This is the night when we are all together for the last time. Let us keep our unity of feeling always, even though we may be miles apart. Let us not fail this century. Let us stay young in heart, and have faith in n1ar1 and in God, no matter what may happen. Yes, tonight we graduate, and tomorrow we are free. With freedom we must take on duty. We must preserve our American freedom by understand- ing the principles of freedom and adhering to them in our daily lives. We must fight prejudice. We must also help extend fundamental human rights to all people in all lands everywhere. We must help them rid themselves of fear, want, and slavery. We must support the United Nations in the present, and by so doing work toward the development of a true world federation in the future. Only in this way shall we be able to maintain everlasting peace. ln us, in the hands of our generation, lies the future of America. Upon America rests the future of the world.
