It is the season When tender flowers unfold their tender buds, And newborn things come forth To taste the first sweet savor of the spring, Feeling the breeze and first warmth of the sun. Yet, with this newness all around me I feel older, Though I am not, For I shall graduate. The train chugs on And as I look out- Of this window of passing thoughts I see us as a group of new students, Learning, readjusting, absorbing, Filling these hallowed halls With an air of freshness That comes with youth and spring. The freshness lingers, The halls echo the name of youth. The train chugs on and this scene shifts. I see glimpses of my classmates, Happy, nonchalant, young, Walking hand in hand down the paths of life Unaware of the passing spring, While the slow metamorphosis We call Life slowly takes its toll Of us, these adolescents. The train moves slowly on. Chug, chug, chug, into a station. I gaze out of this window of my mind At a rainbow of gowns, diplomas, Students bidding las-t fond adieus, While classmates croon out That sweet melody of spring. The train moves on. Spring is past- Only the memory of it remains, And soon, that too, will pass with time. Such is Life."

Books, magazines, and newspapers today constantly instill in their readers the idea that "there is something fearsome in the multitude of war babies grown to school age." We have had the advantage of skilled and sufficient teachers, costly supplies. and comfortable housing facilities. The question that is facing some of you as parents and all of us as citizens is Whether or not the children that will be flooding our schools in the very near future will enjoy equal privileges. The problems created by over-crowded housing and the teacher shortage are facing both city and rural schools. Educational opportunities are not equal as they should be, because rural districts cannot supply funds sufficient to build needed schools or to pay competent, qualified teachers. Even city districts are losing in the fight to obtain intelli- gent, well-trained teachers because industry is offering these people opportunities for excellent, highly-paid jobs without long years of college training. Solutions to these problems will not come easily, but solutions must be found if America is to maintain good standards in its public schools. We Americans can afford improvements in our educa- tional system. Statistics show that the amounts spent on education are deplorable when compared with the amounts spent on tobacco, cosmetics, liquor, and the cost of crime. Good education is a "continuous problem," but when we weigh its benefits as opposed to its costs, we find that edu- cation is more than worth the price. SYLVIA HENDRICKSON ORATION "NEVER LOSE A HOLY CURIOSITYU KARL FOSTER GRADUATION ISSUE These words by the late Dr. Albert Einstein were recently addressed to a college freshman who had taken a fatalistic attitude toward life. Einstein went on to say that "the important thing is not to stop questioning." These statements hold the key to our future and the future of the world. Science, or organized knowledge, has advanced a long way from the time when man first began to collect and systematize his work. Science has provided us with a good present and the chance for a future beyond even our wildest dreams. Presupposing a peaceful world, it is predicted that even within twenty-five years our life and our world will be so far advanced as to be unrecognizable. Yet we cannot expect to find life a bed of roses and al- though our future has been made possible by our predeces- sors, we shall have to work hard for it. ln addition to teach- ing us what we know, science also shows us what we do not know. We must Hnever lose a holy curiosity." There are as many grave problems facing us as citizens of the world as there are problems in the advancement of organized knowl- edge in our particular chosen fields. We must ever be alive to this fact and work for a united world, striving always for the betterment of mankind. Only by constant questioning and experimenting, both in the realm of pure science and in other human affairs, can we hope to make our future what it should and ought to be.

The Teller of Tales speaks softly words of wisdom until his voice fades and he is gone. He has left us alone and the sun is setting -but we are unafraid. We leave a trail of memories and prepare to cut a new path once again in a wilderness. But this time we are older and set out on a trail of hopes and dreams, wiser and stronger. The sun dips and is gone, only to pre- pare the bright new sunrise of tomorrow. Opportunity is ours-and, Teller of Tales, "We have heard your words of wisdom. We will think of what you've told us."

N ... - . -v.-- ---... TENNIS During the last two years tennis has proved to be an excellent source of enjoyment and com- petition for several members of our graduating class. Although we didn't make any starting positions on the team as sophomores, We never- theless gained experience. During our junior year three of our juniors earned starting posi- tions and won letters - Barry Cerier, Hugh Taggart, and Marvin Porter. Backing them up were fellow juniors Arthur Gay and David Winer. All turned in creditable seasons for Coach Scheer, with Porter undefeated and Cerier and Taggart losing but once. During the season our team faced Lawrence Academy, Assumption Prep of Worcester, and Fitchburg, ending with a record of one win and four losses. Rain forced the cancellation of several more matches. This year our senior players look forward to more luck in both their final record and in having less rain. Whatever the outcome, how- ever, we seniors will feel that tennis has been a refreshing and rewarding sport. MARVIN PORTER TRIBAL Favorite Male Vocalist ..,.,....,. Favorite Female Vocalist .......

Last year, with juniors Karl Foster and Richard Ledoux participating, Coach Paquette's Purple Linkmen enjoyed a 9-1 season, marred only by loss to Portsmouth. This downfall, was soon forgotten when the team brought home the elusive State and Individual Cham- pionships after a twenty-year absence. With three regulars for its '55 season and several promising youngsters, the defending State Champions face a lot of hard work, but with the help of a ten-match schedule negotiat- ed by Coach Paquette, the team should be in fine shape to retain the championship on June 3 and 4. And if experience leads to success and one success promotes another, its team may yet achieve a perfect season. KARL FOSTER CHOICES Perry Como Theresa Brewer Glenn Miller Earl Bostic The Priscilla Ted Williams "Sincerely" "Gone with the Wind" George Gobel President Eisenhower "Gone with the Wind" TUSITALA TRACK AND CROSS COUNTRY Although they had never run track before, the five members of 1955, Dick Harwood, Tom Ryan, Hubert Chaput, Jack Lacombe, and Jim Kopka, who reported for track as sophomores gave a good account of themselves, and when spring of 1954 rolled around they were ready and waiting, with Flahive as an important ad- dition. Harwood came through in the mile, Kopka scored consistently in the discus and shop-put, Ryan often went twenty feet broad jumping, and Lacombe and Chaput picked up those extra points which are precious in a close contest. Nashua finished fourth in the State meet. Har- wood and Flahive were selected to run in the New England, where Harwood added a fifth place to his win in the state meet. In the latter Flahive took third in the half mile. Early in 1955 indoor track caught the at- tention of the Nashua runners, and Nashua sent its first indoor track team to the Exeter meet, placing a strong third. GRADUATION ISSUE As the 1955 track season continues, the same six seniors are out, and the state title in track is just over the hill. Thomas Flahive, Richard Harwood, and Hubert Chaput sparked the 1953 cross country team to a 4-1 record, losing only to Lowell by one point. Flahive and Harwood broke an elev- en-year record at Lawrence Central that year. The team of 1954 was paced by the hard run- ing, red-headed combination of Harwood and Flahive, and good steady runners in Taggart and Chaput. Nashua finished with a 5-2 record. Many records fell during the course of the season. Flahive and Harwood reduced the 1948 home course record from 11:54 to an a- mazing 11:05. The team took third in the state meet, which was better than any previous team from this school had done. Harwood, who finished fifth, and Flahive eighth, were on the All-State Cross Country Team. Both boys were eligible to run in the New England Meet at Boston. THOMAS FLAHIVE PAGE FIFTY-SEVEN BASEBALL At the beginning of the 1953 baseball sea- son, the Nashua High Panthers had three boys of the class of '55 on the team: Paul Bellavance, Richard Landry, and Charles Jepson. These three boys contributed much to the success of the team throughout the season, and were in- strumental in the winning of second place in the state class A championship tournament held at Keene. In 1954 there were these six members of the class of '55 on the baseball team: Charles Jepson, Richard Landry, Paul Bellavance, Robert Miller, Leo Dutton, and Robert Migneault fwho joined the service in 1955 be- fore graduationj The ball team again went to the finals only to be defeated by a strong Bishop Bradley team, by the score of 11 to 5. All of the players of the class of '55 played in this game, and again they proved to be the sup- porting pillar of the team. We are expecting a good season this year with the return of many veterans from the pre- vious season. The members of the class of '55 who are trying out for the baseball team are Richard Landry, Paul Bellavance, Charles Jepson, Leo Dutton, and Robert Miller. On the schedule for the 1955 season are Spaulding High of Rochester, Keene, Concord, Laconia, Manchester Central, Manchester West, Bishop Bradley of Manchester, Fitchburg, and Stevens of Claremont. We are to play each team twice, excluding the play-offs. We will play eighteen games, and we are certainly go- ing to try to get into the play-offs, and to come in first this year, instead of second, as we did in 1953 and 1954. In saying farewell, we, the players of the class of '55, would like to thank our coach, Charles "Buzz" Harvey, for his great efforts to make us into a good baseball team. RICHARD LANDRY PAGE FIFTY-SIX GIRLS' BASKETBALL Three cheers for the Girls' Basketball Team, which has had an excellent record of twelve wins and two losses during the three years that the girls in our class have been play- ing. Although scanty credit has been awarded the girls, they have constantly gone on to pro- duce winning teams. In all three years Sylvia Spencer, Marie Chartrain, and Dorothy Fleury have stayed in the starting six. Betty Leone also held a first-club position until we lost her at the end of our junior year. Phyllis Philbrick joined the team for the '54 and '55 seasons. At the beginning of our junior year Sylvia Spencer was elected captain, a position which she also held senior year. "Spence" was cer- tainly deserving of this title, as she showed in all her outstanding games. Because of the size of our school we en- counted difficulty in scheduling out-of-town games. Many thanks go to the girls of Milford High, Merrimack High, and Brookline, who played us even though they weren't in our league. St. Aloysius also proved to be a worthy opponent. In our sophomore year we won all our games by decisive victories, defeating Merri- mack, Milford, and St. Aloysius. We repeated our victories in our junior year by whipping Merrimack and St. Aloysius. During our senior year we were less fortunate, for we dropped our first game with Milford. In the second game, however, we defeated them. We won over Mer- rimack in the first game, but lost the second game by a questionable one point difference. We went on to defeat Brookline and St. Aloysius. Although not too many games were sched- uled, the girls worked for an hour and a half every afternoon and had fun doing it. Miss Alice Bennett, who began coaching at Nashua High when we were sophomores, deserves much credit for working with the girls and making them into a sportsmanlike club. We are sure she will continue to produce good clubs. MARIE CHARTRAIN TUSITALA BASKETBALL In our sophomore year, 1952-1953, Flahive was the only member of our class on the Senior High basketball team. He was on the first string of the J. V. squad and proved to be a valuable addition. In our sophomore year, 1952-1953, Flahive and George Manley played for the varsity, the former securing a starting position and Manley playing as a reserve. Paul Bellavance, Albert Beaulieu, Bernie Moran, Ralph Lucier, Bill Gagnon, Jim Dobens, and Bob Theriault made up the J. V. squad. The team had a fair sea- son, ending with a 9-7 record. In our junior year, Red Flahive kept his starting assignment on the varsity team, and Bellavance, Beaulieu, and Theriault joined Manley on the reserve list. This was a good year for basketball at N. H. S., as the team rolled up a 22-2 record and copped the Merri- mack Valley and State Championships before going on to Boston to be eliminated by a strong Brockton team in the New England tourney. GRADUATION ISSUE In 1954-1955, we had an inexperienced team. Flahive was elected captain, and Theri- ault and Bellavance joined him on the starting five. The team compiled a fair 9-7 record, but was eliminated by Central in the opening round of the state tourney. Congratulations should be accorded Tom Flahive, who played four years of excellent basketball and was always a steadfast pillar of support to his team mates. He did an excep- tionally good job in his senior year as he led the team in scoring and obtained the "most valuable" award in the Merrimack Valley Con- ference. We should like to thank Coach Tony Marandos for the long hours he labored coach- ing us, and also for the wonderful time we had on our trip to New York in 1954, after winning the state title.

The following year added to the squad James Kopka and Roland St Onge. That year we got off to a bad start, losing our first four games. Our first victory was over Manchester Central 26 - 7. We won the rest of our games except for the Keith Academy one, in which we suf- fered a 12 - 0 loss. With our record 5 - 5, the in-state victories recaptured the New Hamp- shire title. Burleigh Briggs made the All-State Team. In '53 the squad started off with victories over Leominster and Malden, only to meet a stunning defeat by Lowell. We then suffered another loss handed down by Salem, 7 - 0. After that we rolled through our schedule with- out another setback. The big game, however, was a 19 - 13 victory over Keith Academy. Our 8 - 2 record kept the state title with us. Burleigh and Tony Mandravelis made the All-State Team. Marois, Kopka, Katsohi, Lehoullier, Bellavance, and Arel were other members of the club. PAGE FIFTY-FOUR 3 fs X 'lun is X X At the close of the '53 season Bellavance and Briggs were named co-captains for 1954. That year found us with a 5 - 4 record, retain- ing the state title besides having the honor of not having been defeated by a New Hampshire club for three years. We received three defeats from Massachusetts foes before we could get our feet on the ground to win decisive victories over New Hampshire teams. Quincy handed us our fourth and final defeat. The season was rounded off with a victory over Bishop Bradley, a game which retained the state title for us. Briggs, Poliquin, and Bellavance made the All-State Team. Johnny Anastasiou was a new-comer to the club that year. We should give Burleigh Briggs special praise for his fine four seasons as a first-string player and for being chosen captain of the All- State Team. Our thanks go to coaches Charles fBuzzJ Harvey and Tony Marandos for three instructive and enjoyable years of football. PAUL.

Even so We, Maidens and Braves of the class of 1955, began a new trail and have trodden it for three years. This trail has brought unity and understanding to its travelers. Let's stop along our trail and meet the passers-by-Sachem of the Tribe, Honored Elder, Elders, Chieftains, Maidens, and Braves, and listen to the Teller of Tales throughout the pages of Tusitala.
