Fifty years ago in this town, a small group of earnest students
embarked on a novel venture. They organized a school magazine.
This does not sound like a particularly imposing project today.
Perhaps even at that time it was not considered so. Be that as it
may, the important fact lies not in what they did, but rather in the
substantial manner in which they did it. So well did they perform
their task that now, fifty years later, their work still continues.
Therefore today, with the sincere hope that we have not failed our
heritage, we dedicate this issue of the Advocate to this first staff:
Albert H. Spence, '91 Harry Tay, '93
Lizzie M. Graves, '91 George Pond, '94
Helen W. Leach, '92 Frank 0. Woodruff, '92

A golden anniversary for our high school publication! Fifty
years of continuous service! Half a century of headaches for the
staff and enjoyment for the readers! This is the enviable record
of the Advocate of Needham High School.
When in 1891 in the old Kimball School, Albert H. Spence,
Lizzie M. Graves, Helen W. Leach and their friends decided to
start a school magazine, they founded a Needham institution which
has developed in size and quality up to the present time. Through
years in the Emery Grover School and the present junior High
building, the pupils of Needham High published a record of their
school life. At first this summary of the year's work was presented
chiefly as a literary magazine. Later, material was added descrip-
tive of the social events and the gayer side of school. Still later,
when high school athletics developed, write-ups of sports and team
pictures were added. Thus, throughout the years, with the growth
of the school and the town, the Advocate also developed.
This year, thinking that this record was indeed worthy of
something special, we have prepared a more elaborate and more
modern yearbook. The emphasis in this issue has been placed on
the pictorial expression of school life rather than on the written ex-
pression. We have included many more pictures and have broadened
the scope of our view of school activities. The style and arrange-
ment of the book have been changed and a theme, designed by
Eugene Ward, has been used to give an effect of unity. We have
also published a section containing excerpts from Advocates since
We hope that our issue of the Advocate, commemorating
fifty years of publication, will be found worthy of the enviable
record already established.

"Ozzie" is one of the friendliest and most popular boys in our
class of which he is treasurer. His winning smile and happy-gtr
lucky manner tell us much about his sparkling personality, while
his witty remarks make the days cheerful for all, We will long
remember his excellent portrayal of Mr. Nelson in the Senior
Play. "Ozzie" has been outstanding both in basketball and base-
ball and as a clieerelcader. We wish him good luck at school next

Silence, more musical than any song.
We all envy Lois May her ability to get such good marks, for her
name always appears on the honor roll! Her hobby is reading,
and she is also very interested in music. Her friends all know her
as an accomplished pianist and the oboe player in the band and
orchestra. Lois May plans to attend Wellesley College next year,
and we know that she will continue her brilliant record there.

was clearly shown by his Fine work as Bill in the Senior Play. To

worked to make it "bigger and betterf' This year the instruments included are
violins, a bass viol, clarinets, an obe, a Hute, trumpets, a eornet and drums. Lorraine
Lowden has replaced Louise Lewis this year as accompanist.
livery Monday afternoon at 2 :SO 0110 may hear music issuing from the Assem-
bly Hall, where the orchestra may be found practicing. Of course extra practices
are necessary before special occasions, such as the junior High operetta "Patience"
and our own operetta "A VValtz Dream." Besides the annual operettas, the orches'
tra plays the weekly assembly music and plays at many other school functions.
They are now rehearsing the Commencement music. Speaking of Commence-
ment, we shall lose many talented members of the orchestra this June. However,
we feel sure that in the fall the orchestra, with its new members, will live up to the
high standards of former years.

Hy SQVICAI, fl,llARA tpardon us, Neallll
My dears, drag up a chair . . . Mondays
seem to be the favorite school days up at
N. ll. S. Assembly, the first thing in the
day, evidently makes the boys and girls feel
that there is something to get up early for,
after all . , . A uniform still excites the
femmes in spite of its prevalence these days.
Lieutenant johnson of the Army Air Corps
proved that on lfebruary third . . . The
Seniors and juniors are already well aware
of the advantages of paying their A. A.
dues and the Sophs should be by now, for
without those weekly payments many of the
programs which we have had would not have
been available . . . Student body and facul-
ty alike were pleased when llflischa Thulin
returned to us last fall with his theremin.
. . . . Considerable talent has been brought
to light through the assemblies this year.
. . . lt was a pleasant surprise for most of
ns to see the Three Cheers, Nickie. llarold
and Reo, perform. They certainly were en-
tertaining, and the likenesses were extreme-
ly good- you all know what for whomj we
mean . . . llfluch as we hate to admit it,
that l'.ti. play was a howl! It would be a
hard task trying to choose the best laugh-
provoker from the whole show . . . Sure
was nice having Mr. Sisson up from the
junior lligh School. No matter how many
times he sings "Shortnin, Bread," it still will
remain the favorite of most of us . . . The
German lland has opened its folds this year,
to admit a girl, Zlllll Barbara adds a charm-
ing touch to its appearance. We enjoy
hearing from them every so often. . .
Many interesting and educational movies
were presented, too. "VVheels Across
South America," "New England Yesterday
and Today," and "The Perfect Tributeu
about Abraham Lincoln are just a few of
them . . . The lioys' Quartet has enter-
tained us on several occasions. That group
contains line singersg but the girls have
plenty of talent, too, being represented by
I'hyl Plaisted, "Magee,' Gately and Shirley
Newcomer . . . The Teachers' Trio does
fine work in representing the faculty. Mr.
Frost is alwaycrahit . . . Theappearanceof
Fuzzy l"urniss's "C0lm11.lviaH.v" put many
students running to buy tickets for the Soph
Hop. lt sure is a nice orchestra . . . "I
Never Took a Lesson ln My Life" should
be llarbara Cohan's theme song. She
doesn't need any, for her tapping is a delight
. . . Seems as if students' driving should
have improved after Mr. William Riordon's
talk on public safety. lt certainly is a vital
subject, one we could all use a few lessons
i11 . . . The band taking the orchestra's
place every once in awhile has been grand.
. . . l.arry Arra and Spud Lumsden ought
to get together and practiceg theirs is a nice
combination . . .

This year's gridiron squad played sex'-
eral thrilling games for a grand iinish,
after acquiring the necessary experience.
lts record was four victories and one tie
in ten games. After a good start, the boys
hit a streak of had luck by losing four
straight games. Among these losses were
the games played with the unusually
strong teams from Norwood and Dedham.
At the halfway point in the season the
Blue and VVhite started clicking and lost
only one of the last tive games. Although
they did lose to Natick, anyone who wil-
nessed the contest will agree that Need-
ham did most of the "pushing around."
The most thrilling and lmest game of the
season was the last. Needham crowned
its tinal winning splurge by defeating its
traditional rival, XN'ellesley, 6-0.

With an almost entirely inexperienced
team, Coach Claxton led his hoopsters
through an eighteen game schedule with
creditable results. After losing to Milton
Academy, the boys went through the sea-
son with a near 5076 record. Although
they won eight and lost ten of their basket-
ball games, this record is really a poor
representation of the true statistics. If
total points were added, one would see
that the sums are nearly equal. Four of
the defeats were to much higher classed
team 5 two were to the Stoughton "giants,"
who later won the Class A South Shore
Tourneyg one to Braintree, Class B Tech
Tourney Championsg and one to Brook-
line, who competed in the Class A Tech
Tourney. Gften, during the season, the
Blue and NVhite showed tlashes of su-
perior playing. Spectators saw these in
the home games with Dedham, Concord
and Natick. Among the eight victories.
the basketball squad took great pleasure
in defeating Wellesley twice. This kept
up this year's record of Needham for
having beaten its traditional rival in all
sports. "Irish" O'Neil was the team's
high scorer with 128 points.
To counterbalance the inexperienced
team of this year, next year's team will be
very much experienced, because only
three of the large squad are graduating.
These three Seniors are the tri-captains,
Kramer, Osborne, and Tomaino. XVith
this happy onlook to next year, we hope
to see the team enter the Tech Tourney.

one for all"

lfor the second successive year, the
Needham lligh hockey team won the
Harry Lawson Trophy as the winner of
the Bay State League. Of the six boys
who helped Coach Pelletier win the cup
last year, only two 1' Arra and Lumsdenj
were on the varsity this year. liobby Rae,
our daring goal-tender, was the hero of
several of the games. "NVickie" Robinson
and Andy Mikkelson were NCCLll1H111iS ace
defensemen. VN'ee llilly Burrows een-
tered the hrst line of Arra and Lumsden 5
and last year's manager, David Palm-
strom, Louis Romaskiezwicz, and How-
ard lleath composed the second line.
After losing 1 to 0 to VValtham in the
opening game, the defending champs
roared through Framingham, Wellesley,
ll. C. High, Quincy, tied with VVatertown,
beat Walpole twice, and Framingham a
second time before losing to pesky XVate1'-
town in the hnal game of the year.
The two scoring stars and co-captains,
Larry Arra and llonald Lumsden, and
also llobby Rae, Robinson, and Mikkelson
were placed on the Bay State League All-
Star first team, while Billy llurrows was
on the second team. The llay State
Leaguers lost to the liastern Mass. League
team 0 to -l, but beat the Springlield All-
As champions of the Bay State League,
Needham was invited to participate in the
New England Inter-Scholastic Hockey
Tournament, held at 1'rovidencc, along
with seven other championship teams.
Needham defeated Springiield High 6 to
0, in the lirst round, but lost to the later
crowned New Iingland champs, Melrose,
4 to 0 in the semi-finals.
With many promising Sophomores and
juniors coming back next year, Coach
Pelletier, who has won two championships
in his two years as hockey coach, expects
to bring the trophy to Needham perma-

The Needham High School wrestling
squad had a very successful season this
year, winning the championship of the
in six matches. Our grapplers showed
their superiority in winning most of their
matches hy wide margins. There were
many veterans returning this year, and
live of them were undefeated throughout
the regular season. Needham placed
second, one point behind Nlfeyinouth, in
the State Interscholastic Meet at Tufts.
Three of our boys came through as state
champions. They are ,lames Sanborn, in
the 100 lh. classg l'aul llleakney, in the
110 lb. class, and .lfrank Kramer, in the
128 lla. class. Danny Acquilino, Oreste
Nardone, and james Henderson won sec-
ond-place awards, while Charles Bellomo
and Francis llersey won Class ll cham-
pionships. Our boys deserve a great deal
of credit for their work this year, and we
are looking' forward to another successful
season next year.

Fortunate, indeed, is the Advocate Staff to
have been granted an interview with so im-
portant a personality as Mrs. Caroline Gay
Mills, the first graduate of The Needham
Senior High School. The staff wishes to ex-
tend to Mrs. Mills its sincerest thanks for
her kind interest and helpful information for
our special Anniversary section.
How should you like to be the only mem-
ber of the graduating class of Needham High
School? Mrs. Caroline Gay Mills, who now
lives at 171 Warren Street, was in just this
position, but that was seventy-three years
ago. She was the only member of the Class
of 1868, and the first person ever to graduate
from Needham High School.
Before the first high school was started,
Mrs. Mills attended Oakland Institute, which
was a fashionable school for young ladies at
the time. The first Needham High School
classes were held in the Centre school-house,
then situated on the corner of Nehoiden
Street and Central Avenue. In 1866 this
school was moved to Village Hall, later
known as Parker Hall. Mrs. Mills spent the
last of her high school days back in the Oak-
land Institute, which had been turned into
the Needham High School.
During her school days, Mrs. Mills lived
on a farm near the present location of the
golf-links. She walked three miles every
day to attend school. Occasionally, she and
her sister rode their father's horses to school
and left them during school hours in a near-
Astronomy, moral philosophy, Zoology,
botany, and rhetoric were required subjects
at that time, but Mrs. Mills also studied
French, Algebra, and Geometry. For a
time, only boys were permitted to study
Latin. The girls, however, feeling slighted
in, this matter, protested to the school com-
mittee, who, after much deliberation, finally
consented to allow the girls as well as the
boys to take the subject.
Dances and parties were often held by
students in a schoolroom in the evenings.
Another popular activity was the "Band of
Hope", a club which met once a week. The
purpose of this club was to discourage the
use of nicotine and alcohol by students.
When Mrs. Mills graduated, she did not
receive a diploma of any kind, as they were
not given to members of the graduating class
at that time.
NVith this review of an N. H. S. of the
past we can, perhaps, smile over the differ-
ences between then and now. There is, how-
ever, a more serious side to the memories of
those early days of the school. As in every-
thing else, there had to be a beginning, and it
was from that first, small, but enthusiastic
and ambitious group of young people that
there has developed an organization which
today graduates annually several hundred
students, and which ranks among the best
high schools in the country.

The Kimball School, which was located on
the land which is now the site of our town
Fire and Police Stations, was the home of
the first Advocate, published in 1891.
just for fun, let's glance through that first
issue. How different it is from the issues
published this year! There are only sixteen
pages in the original copy. The small staff
of fifteen included in the contents transla-
tions of Latin, German, French, and Greek,
whereas, there are no translations in our
book, and Greek is not even taught in
N. H. S. any more. Under "Literary," an
article on the history of N. H. S. states that
one of the earliest teachers of the then one-
room school was a twenty-year-old Harvard
student. CThose were the days, eh, girls?j
The Advocate of 1891 was printed by George
W. Southworth of the Needham Chronicle
and sold for six cents.
On re-reading that first issue and those fol-
lowing it, our present Advocate Staff found
that the style and content of the magazine
changed considerably throughout the years.
Some of the most amusing and interesting
material included in those early works has
been selected and printed in this anniversary
issue for the purpose of recalling school days
of the past to our readers of the Advocate of
The gong which our principal procured

"Do You Remember?"
It is a warm, pleasant evening in early
june, and the spacious hall is hung with
bright balloons and gaily colored banners
lettered with HN. H. S. '4l," all of which an-
nounces the fact that the class of '41 is hold-
ing its tenth reunion. Margie Wheeler is
holding open house g and while she is bustling
around greeting people and guests are arriv-
ing, let's briefly review the early history of
Most of the members of this class began
their formal education in one of Needhamls
many grammar schools around the year
1928. Those who attended the Stephen
Palmer will perhaps remember the picnic at
Norumbega or the many plays they pre-
sented. Those from the Heights will prob-
ably recollect that their annual operetta was
the year's most important function. In the
sixth grade, sleighing and tobogganing par-
ties were the order of the day. However, it
was in Junior High that this class was first
united and their "Nee Hi News," and the
operettas and plays were paving the way for
their future success on the hill.
Now let's walk around and renew old
friendships. The room is rapidly filling up
with couples, some dressed in street clothes,
others wearing formal gowns which make a
gay pattern of color as they weave in and
out with, "Do you remember F" Let's listen
"Why, hello Blanche and Porky! How
grand to see you both! Quite a gathering,
isnlt it ?" remarks our jovial hostess to a
young couple entering.
"Isn't it great seeing all our old friends
again-oh there's Mac, remember he was
one of our class orators at graduation F" said
"Yes, and wasnlt Norma an orator, too ?"
"That's right, and she was our D. A. R.
Pilgrim," remarked Blanche.
"By the way, have you seen Louise Lewis,
or Grif, speaking of class orators?" asked
"Oh, there's Ruth and Hardy," Blanche
burst in eagerly. "Remember the Hute and
clarinet duet they played in assembly when
we were Seniors ?"
Meanwhile the orchestra has started up
and Porky remarks, "Why, that's the song
they played to start our Sophomore Hop l"
Hardy burst in, "Yes, and remember
Garet and Connie leading the grand march
through the drum ?"
"What about the junior Prom?" asked
"Oh, that was the one where we had a
Southern plantation and waltzed around
stately white pillars," answered Ruth Cor-
nell, who had joined the group.
"Oh, yes--and the next year we went
tropical. Remember the palm trees and the
beautiful pink llamingoln added Blanche.
"Why, that looks like Nick-it is! Sh-
he's trying to say something," remarked
Porky as Nick mounted a chair and signaled
"Tonight we have a great treat for you all.
We are privileged to hear for the first time
in ten years the German Band, under the
able leadership of its originator, John
A cheer went up from the gathering as
Ralph, John Wyeth and John Nelson started
up a snappy tune.
Hardy said to Ruthie, "Remember, they
played for the dances in the boys' gym
"You boys certainly made adorable girls,"
remarked Blanche to the ever-widening
"Talking of sports, remember our hockey
games at the arena and Bobby Rae and
Spud l" remarked Ruth.
"Say, we didn't do too badly in football,
either-remember our Thanksgiving games
with Wellesley and the good work Larry,
Goodwin, Heath and Robinson did," inter-
"Speaking of football," Ruthie remarked,
"remember the fun we had in the band."
"Yes," said Hardy, "Our Thanksgiving
benefit nights started a tradition."
"Before we get off sports, remember our
wrestling team and the Kramersf' added
"Oh, here come Larry Arra and Gerty
Haszard," cried Marge. "Say, Larry, weren't
you in the operetta chorus of the 'Waltz
Dream F' You and Spud were our musical
"Yes, and Louise, janet, and john had
leads," answered Larry.
"Oh, do you remember how gorgeously
Elves danced and how sweetly Phyl sang"-
"Speaking of dancing, didn't Peter Ravin-
ski and Michael Kosmenko do a Russian
dance in assembly once ?" asked Gerty.
"Say, Gerty, remember the year you
played on the basketball and hockey teams,"
"Oh, yes, and you and Blanche were our
tennis stars along with Zeke and Shirley,"
"Don't forget Churchie, Hazel, Sainty,
Pete, and Betty," added Blanche.
"The boys had a good team, too," added
Hardy, "Rugen, Allen and Nelson were
"Remember the girls' gym meets and the
school days dance," added Arra.
"Oh, yes, and then the girls did a specialty
dance in the operetta, too," continued
"Didn't Miss Cowdrey have charge of the
costumes ?" asked Gerty.
"Yes, and remember the fashion shows
they had on exhibition night. The orchestra
played then, and at the Senior Play too,"
"Remember the leads in the Senior Play,"
remarked john Wyeth who had joined the
"Harry Jeeves, dialect was well done, and
I'll never forget Evon's sneezes," added
"Andy took pictures that night," said
Blanche, "They ought to be in the Advocate.
Oh, here it is! just look at us !"
"Remember Mac was editor and Norma
business manager," said Porky thumbing
through the pages.
With that the group broke up and started
dancing, there we will leave them with their
