We will never forget your patient, friendly, and untiring efforts to assist us in both our schoolwork and extra curricular activities. Foreword It has often been said, that we are the hope for the future. This is a high sounding phrase, but leaving out its emotional overtones, one can find a core of realism here. During our years in school we have laughed, and joked among ourselves of how glad we would be to graduate. Now that moment has arrived; we find our thoughts have changed. Before we leave Orleans High School for good, we want to dedicate ourselves fully to our place and duties in life. We want to thank you, our teachers and parents, for the education you have provided for us. We assure you that we are aware of our job and, upon graduating shall begin fulfilling the hopes and trust that you have placed in us. MR. ARMAND A.

This group composed of eight seniors, six juniors, five sophomores, two freshmen and one member of both the seventh and eighth grades, is the voice of the student body. Its aim is to help in the solution of pro¬ blems concerning the students and their ac¬ tivities, and to aid in the school ' s over all efficiency. Another facet of the group ' s work deals with activities such as dress up day, when the entire student body comes in finery, field day, when the whole school takes a picnic and the annual sport ' s dinner which honors our championship teams. Out of After months of fervent planning our long awaited " Prom Time " ar¬ rived. After deciding upon the theme " Out of This World, " we sent three class members to Boston. They returned equipped with crepe paper rockets and vivid planets and spark¬ ling Cosmic dust. The weeks be¬ fore were spent in constructing these rockets and planets which were to adorn the walls of our gymnasium. The day of the prom dawned bright and sunny but the " Jubilent Juniors” spent most of it in the gym, work¬ ing excitedly. Slowly the bare walls were filled with clouds, stars, plan¬ ets and trails of dust. This World Finally in the late afternoon the decorations were made complete with the erection of our stupendous and very colorful rocket ship. Every Junior held an anxious breath as they made their entrance into the realms of outer space for fear of sagging streamers and falling stars but our hopes and decorations re¬ mained up throughout the entire evening and a wonderful time was had by all. Nothing But A Comedy in 3 Acts by James Montgomery CAST Robert Bennett -.Bill Whitright Gwendolyn Ralston-Bonnie Pierce E. M. Ralston —-- David Bessom Mrs. E. M. Ralston - Erlyne Flinchbaugh Mable Jackson-Ellen Moore Sable Jackson--Salee Morin Dick Donnelly.Harold Cooper Van Dusan.Richard Philbrick Bishop Doran-Leo Leary Ethel Clark-Bonnie Pierce Martha-Pa tricia Chace Under the Direction of MR. GORDON ARGO Our Senior Play production was a comedy in three acts entitled " Nothing But the Truth” produced and directed under the capable hand of Mr. Argo. It was largely due to his professional direction and the¬ atrical talent that our play was such a tremendous success. The month proceeding the play was one of tedious and very laborious rehearsals. At times our endeavors seemed pointless and we were all perhaps a bit skepti¬ cal as to whether or not we ' d have enough of a show to put together for a public presentation, but when it was all over we had achieved the unforgettable feeling of having participated in a job well done and well worth the effort. We ' d like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the Junior class for lend¬ ing us two of their more talented actors. They played an essential part in the composition of the play. Yearbook Staff Honor Society The‘Honor Society is composed of a group of students who excel in their academic studies. To be a candidate for membership in the National Honor Society a student must receive all B ' s or better on his report card for two consecutive terms. If this is accomplished the student ' s name is then brought up before the faculty and voted on. In addition to his scholastic record, the student ' s character, service and participation in school activities and qualities as a leader are taken into consideration. If he re¬ ceives a unanimous vote from the faculty, he then receives an application for member¬ ship into the society. A student is admitted with the understanding that he must keep his marks up and failure to do this will result in an automatic suspension from the soc¬ iety. In Orleans High School there are two divisions of the Honor Society; the Junior Soc¬ iety, consisting of those in the eighth through tenth grades who receive honors, and the Senior Honor Society composed of those students who receive honors in the eleventh and twelfth grades. An impressive investiture cere¬ mony with the faculty and parents as guests is held each spring and fall to admit new members. Member¬ ship in the society is not only an honor but a mark of noteworthy a- chievement. r Music Maestro! Orchestra Band Chansons!

" Percy Van Cochran loses an edge to Patrick O’Pettengill in the courtship of sweet Miss Mergatroyde Fulcher. Frankie Sinatra arrived, to the acclaim of all! The organization known as the Future Teachers of America was chartered in Orleans High School three years ago under the direction of Mr. Cochran. In three short years the club has become very active and Mr. Boynton has joined Mr. Cochran as advisor. The club is set up to show the members the desired qualities, traits, and aptitudes which are basic or related to successful teaching. The participants are allowed to learn from observation and participation, how a class is operated and the preparation necessary for a class session. The club offers literature per¬ taining to teaching, and the members take trips to different schools and colleges. While the FT A is primarily interested in students who are planning to be¬ come teachers, it is also interested in those students who have not made up their minds as to their vocation but are thinking of entering the educational field. The information acquired by a student in the FT A may enlighten him before he is faced with the final decision as to his career.

I : Class History The bell rang for fifth period and we made our way through the corridor to Room 7. After a minute or two of the usual chatter, we settled down and gave our attention to Mr. Pettingill, who was to advise us in the organization and activities of our class for the next four years. This was in September of ' 55. Mr. Pettingill faced forty-six blank, lively freshmen and outlined the responsibilities and duties in the organization of our class. We hope he has not regretted the assignment, and we know his work with us has required much effort and valuable time. We are grateful and will re¬ member his abiding patience long after we have closed the doors behind us. During the first class meeting we elected Ken Peterson to serve as skipper on the first leg of our voyage, with Doug Lai as mate. Bonnie Pierce was chosen to keep the log, and Wayne Richardson was purser. The first year of our high school life was exciting, as opportunities were opened to us in the sports, spon¬ soring dances, and participating in the One-Act Play Competition. We chose the drama, " Which Is The Way to Boston? " Our sophomore year saw us embarked with the same officers. Our Biology class was interesting, particularly when Miss Toby, unaware of the vivisection laws, showed us the palpitating heart of a live frog. There was the time we studied preserved worms and then went to lunch only to forfeit our dinner of spaghetti. This year, the class took part in the variety show and made plans for the skit, " This Is Your Life. " It was a surprise not only to our victim but to the class when Dr. Brooks did not come that night as planned. We selected a " Case For Two Detectives " as our play this year. The comedy was distinguished for love scenes between Dave and Ellen, when Ellen murmured, " Oh, Oh, Oh! " The next year we came to school as Juniors and were confronted with various responsibilities for the oncoming year. Ellen was our skipper, Mary Mayo the mate. Pat Chance tended the logs and Wayne Richardson was purser. The highlight of the fall of our Junior Year was the arrival of class rings. The oc¬ casion was demonstrated by the outstretched hands on one day and the glitter of gold on chains the next. Our play, " The Hanging of Uncle Dilby, " will be remembered for Bill Whitright’s gymnastics. The highlight during the spring of the year was our Junior Prom, entitled " Out of This World. " The name could be taken literally, as the dancers found themselves twirling amid rockets, mis¬ siles, and clouds. This was the year when David Bessom encountered Peter Vroundgos and the contests in test marks began. It was also the year when Dr. Brooks discovered David Bessom shod in hip boots. We returned to the beaten decks in the fall of ' 58 with the important title of " Mighty Seniors. " The decrease in number was readily noted as we totaled forty-six in our freshman year, but only twenty-eight now, the smallest class since 1955. But dynamite is small stuff, too. Furthermore, Mr. Guarino has dubbed us " Deadliners, " as we always come through on the last minute, ex¬ ploding with ideas and activities. Although we had planned a big year with many good times, we soon learned that the year had many responsibilities and much hard work in store for us. We encountered trying times and much confusion, particularly during the memora¬ ble class meeting when Mr. Argo admonished us to sell tickets for the Senior Play; Mr. Guarino arrived to encourage the sale of fudge; Mr. Edwards popped his head in to remind us that material for our yearbook was due; Mr. Petten- gill came for volunteers to help with scenery for the play; and Mr. Craig stopped by to take orders for our Senior class pictures. All the while Wayne tried to carry on a coherent class meeting. Our Senior play, " Nothing But The Truth, " was a very thrilling and big success. Dave ' s cigar smoking, Sallee ' s red hair, and Ellen’s famous line, " I was an innocent goil, " will long be remembered. Current History Class was memorable for Erlyn ' s loquacious nature and Dave ' s persistent attempts to win an argument with Dr. Brooks. In October, the senior girls were distinguished on their arrival to school attired in ensembles of black. This incident precipated the lower classmen ' s fads of potato sacks and colored hair. In retrospect, we note that the members of our class have made substantial contributions to the life of the school. Many of us have participated in Glee Club, Chorus, Orchestra, and Band. Both boys and girls have represented us well on the field and court. Six of the boys and four of the girls have received varsity letters. Several of the class have taken part in separate acts or made the famed rockette line in the Variety Show. Our class has made history not only because of its size but also because it is the last class to graduate from Orleans High School. At times our voyage has been a stormy one, and we may have been thrown temporarily off our course. Nevertheless, we believe our journey has been suc¬ cessful and has enabled us to look forward with pride and confidence as we make landfall at our destination. B. Pierce We are g athered at this testimonial dinner to.honor and pay homage to this country’s expert on juvenile delinquency, Judge Bessom. He has served us faithfully for two weeks, and it is our humble opinion that he fully deserves retirement. Let us meet some outstanding citizens seated at the head table. They represent the graduating class of OHS just 20 years ago - all graduated summa cum laude, a remarkable achievement. First, Rear Admiral Wayne Richardson, commander of the Orleans Red Cross Rescue fleet with home ports at Skaket Beach and Crystal Lake. He was recently decorated for bravery when he rescued a half-submerged clam. At his left, Prof. Stanley Knowles, an excellent orator, was beseiged with offers to head the Cape Cod for Cape Cod¬ ders Propaganda Movement, now located at Brewster. Then we have Christine Degnan, noted store manager, just promoted from the ranks of the Soda Jerkers Union to the Cosmetics Division of the Orleans Pharmacy. The vacant chair, that’s for Douglas Lai, who sent his best wishes. He is attending the Olympic play-offs of " Marbles " in Times Square. Mr. Richard MacNeil of the Whalewalk Farm, next, rep¬ resents the HFBWA (Help Free Beached Whales Association), and he is asking for contributions to his worthy cause, large ones, naturally. Returning to a more profound subject, Barbara Stewart and Murray Savage are successful with their new company, Amal¬ gamated Arsenic and Cyanide, Inc. Miss Lorraine Dumont, former student at the Mayo Clinic, now demonstrates her latest invention, the noiseless, motion¬ less milking machine. It is being tested at the Edwards Grade A Farm. Prof. Roland Mayo of Columbia University has a brilliant student, Mary Mayo. Mary is now a student of the Russian language - she found old Cape Cod a bit tiresome. Marcia Bissonnette has recently recovered from a nervous breakdown. Her children have been examined by pediatricians from coast to coast for a rare and unique physical trait. So far no treatment has been perfected so that something can be done about those 13 little pug noses running around her household. Jay Williams, after absorbing much scientific data at North Eastern U. took over as Civil Defense administrator of N. E. Unfortunately for the population of the Eastern seaboard he became so scientifically involved that he invited the Mar¬ tians to drop the first bomb of World War III on our shores. He wanted a closer look at what made it tick. We have it from reliable sources that Erlyne F. Rockefeller will soon reign as first lady of the land at the White House. Earl tells us that she just told " Rocky " point blank that she was weary of the decor of the governor ' s mansion, and a change is now in the wind. Billy Whitwright ' s social talents as well as his suave way with the ladies has really paid off. He is now the toast of American women, replacing J. B. on " Queen for a Day " show. One of his latest queens was Roberta Cole, who appeared in tears on the show beseeching for one can of 30 motor oil for her trusty 50 Mercury, that is now dry docked. However, the sponsors of the show felt that she would be much better off in a horse-drawn carriage. We are pleased to announce that Gillette ' s have signed up Jim Kew for a sports series, starting soon. One main event will be the 10-round bout between Haystack Calhoun and Phil Dunphy. Bonny Pierce and John Knowles have tried, tested, and approved fully the theory expounded by Frank Gilbert’s CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN. They recommend the happiness of marital bliss to all, but Bonnie really believes that every apart¬ ment building should have elevator service to all floors, includ¬ ing the 12th. Teaching Home Economics in high school offered little challenge to Patty Chace, and we hear that she is now interior decoration director at Sing Sing. Her latest innovation in that institution has been designing pink ruffled curtains for the cells. Sally Morin, working in her astronomical lab, has suc¬ ceeded in communicating with the Man in the Moon, but their correspondence is censored - for security reasons. Harold Cooper, choreographer to B. S. Troop 52, is teaching ritual dances of the Apaches. Kenny Peterson has finally achieved success as a phys. ed. instructor at Vassar - what a man! Ellen Moore, recently crowned Beach Buggy Queen for the MBBA, has been named advertising manager of the Cape Cod C. of C. - something to do during the long winter months. Jerry Lee, wonder driver of OHS, is chairman of the an¬ nual Safe Driving Campaign. George Dunsford has become a TV personality, starring in a daily serial entitled " The Route 6 Incident " or " How It Couldn’t Be Done! " P. Chace J. Williams Class Will WE, THE CLASS OF 59, being of sound mind and body, and de¬ siring the perpetuation of these, our individual traits which help to make our class unique, bequeath the following to our successors and contemporaries: David Bessom willingly leaves his famed " Bessmobile " to Dr. Brooks to take the place of old 27. It might come in handy on these rainy days! Marcia Bissonnette leaves her peroxide bottle to Mr. Pettingill. Another mysterious chemical added to the lab! Pat Chace leaves her entire collection of home economic awards to Glorianne Perreault. Roberta Cole leaves her sneeze, which is not only the loudest and most penetrating, but the one that occurs in the quietest study halls, to Barbara Chase. Harold Cooper leaves his course in new and unusual Indian dances to the Arthur Murray Dance Studios. Wayne Carron plans to enroll as an instructor in this type of choreography. Christy Degnan leaves her flair for concocting exciting new sodas to Joe Wright. Lorraine Dumont leaves one inch of her superfluous height (that is all she can spare) to Jeanette Caurant. Phil Dumphy leaves a 50 per cent interest in his flourishing auto¬ mobile agency, Wolkswagons, to Bobby Corrigan. Just one little draw¬ back, however; it is located in the Anarctica. George Dunsford leaves his blushes to the most colorful Junior, Richard Philbrick. Erlyne Flinchbaugh absconds with her Vassar scholarship for the Riviera and some of that " easy living. " Jim Kew leaves a pair of his size 14 shoes to Johnny Fuller. Just think, John, they ' ve only been used twice! John Knowles leaves his razor to Bobby Connors. Johnny can’t find any use for it. Stan Knowles leaves his complete " Slenderella " course to Bruce Mac- Pherson. Good Luck, Bruce! Doug Lai leaves his " quick hands " to Stuart Moore. Jerry Lee leaves his infectious laugh to Richard Sparrow. Richard MacNeill leaves his latest invention, a left-handed monkey wrench, to Art Fancy. Mary Mayo leaves her racing nom de plume, " Heedless Hotrod Mayo, " to Judy Dennison, who plans to continue their dare-devil feats at the Norwood Arena. Roland Mayo leaves the longest kick of the soccer season to Jackie McPhee. Ellen Moore leaves her " innocent goil” line to Sally Drown. Sallee Morin leaves the energy and vitality that she displays in gym classes to Amy Hooper. Jeanette Perreault leaves her tired typing hands to next year ' s year¬ book typist. Ken Peterson has decided to give the other boys in town a chance. He is leaving his " harem " behind when he flies to Hawaii to investigate the rumor he has heard about gals in grass skirts. Bonnie Pierce leaves her nimble fingers to any prospective Paganini who may appear. Wayne Richardson leaves his horse to the Science Museum in Boston --he has heard that they are interested in prehistoric relics. Murray Savage leaves an unidentified skeleton to Mr. Gates for his new physiology lab. Wonder who it could be! Barb Stewart leaves her elevator shoes to Linda Toomey. You might touch the rim yet, Linda! Will Whitright leaves his priceless collection of jokes and joke books to Roger Gill. He ' ll be the life of every party. Jay " Soapy " Williams leaves his unpublished but not unpublicized Charlie Brown cartoons to John Hinckley. Ellen Moore George Dunsford Custodial Staff Essential to the running of O. H. S. is the work done by Eddie Nichols and Sammie Smith. In addition to keeping everything well healed and lighted they have also assisted in our many projects and helped repair our few disasters. Kitchen Staff The O. H. S. kitchen staff has only to look at the well fed look on the faces of our students to know they’ve done an excellent job of feeding the over 300 students and teachers of Orleans High.
