Richard attended our school for two years. He enlisted in the navy in 1940 and was serving on the U. S. S. Arizona at the time of the japanese attack. The students of Newburyport High School will ever honor his memory. NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD OUR HONOR ROLL Almost every day sees another boy who has attended N. H.

S. AND THE WAR For the past four months our country has been at war. The students of N. H. S., both past and present, have made a commendable effort to do their part for ultimate victory. There are approximately two hundred former students now serving in America's armed forces. N. H. S. is proud of them. We hope N. H. S. is also proud of the part being played by the students of today. Their part has thus far consisted of the sale of defense bonds and stamps in school, the organization of service knitters and of a model airplane club, the collection and sale of old newspapers and magazines, and the enlistment of five senior boys in the U. S. Navy. Although these accomplishments are not spectacu- lar, they reflect at least an effort to do our part for Uncle Sam. They express our determination to answer the call of duty. When and if that call is made, we hope our answer will be one of which we will ever have occasion to be proud. THE BENEFITS OF TRAVEL I think that most of the world's troubles would be ended if more people would travel, and they would if travel were made more accessible to the people. In America we are told that Germans are barbarians, Italians are cowards, and Spaniards are ignorant. PAGE EIGHT Over there they think we are a nation of playboys and the English are money-grabbers. Now if more Americans visited Europe and leamed to know the people over there, they would realize that Germans are not ferocious, but rather a peaceful people who have produced great works of music, literature, and art, and have done much in the field of science. They would soon realize that the Italians, the least warlike of people, are simple, kind, and courageous when they believe' that they are right. They would learn that Spaniards, on the whole, are an intelligent, freedom loving race and far from ignorant. On the other hand, a German, Italian, or Spaniard visiting America and England would find that the common Englishman is not a money-grabber but an open minded person standing for what he believes is right. He would find that Americans are a wise- cracking, sport minded, tolerant, and brave people, who hold no grudge against the ordinary European. People of one nation who have become acquainted with another country are not so likely to believe the warlike accusations of their leaders. The scenery of a country is also a heart warming feature. Foreign- ers visiting Switzerland love that little country not solely because of her inhabitants but also because of her beautiful lakes and mountains. They can under- stand why the Swiss are so patriotic. Americans and English visiting Germanyls cities, forests, lakes, and peaks can say with the Germans, "Lieb Vaterlandf' Germans traveling through the peaceful country towns of Britain or watching the heavily laden fishing boats dock cannot believe Der Fuhrer when he condemns England. When they ride in taxis through New York, Chicago, Boston, and Los Angeles, or climb the peaks of the Rockies, they can realize why Americans will not give them up, and why America will always remain America. Francis Bresnalzan '43 BETTER N EIGHBORS La Conga is sweeping the country like wildfire. Look in any number of "Home" magazines and you will find many of the more attractive rooms decorated in the Latin manner. Not a few novelty shops have gone all out South American. You know this, but did you ever reason why? Our govemment is en- dorsing a policy of hemisphere solidarity. It would like to see all the governments of North, Central, NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD and South America good neighbors. With this view in mind, well known movie actors were recently sent to South America as ambassadors of good will. Through the Pan-American sections of our news- papers and magazines many of us have acquired a better understanding of our neighbors to the south. We all agree that this could still be improved. What better way than the study of the language of our neighbors, their closest possession? In order to have a class in Spanish here in this high school, only twenty parents would have to sign a petition, and twenty pupils agree to take the course. From the comments heard, it would seem there are a few times twenty pupils waiting for the opportunity to take Spanish. LONGER LUNCH PERIOD For some time the question of a longer lunch period has been debated in N. H. S. The reason for this discussion is obvious. The confusion in the cafeteria exists mainly because the students have not the time to take their time. When the lunch bell rings, pupils scatter, most of them scooting down to the cafeteria, but many of the girls going to the girls' room. Once in the cafeteria, lunching becomes a rush of grabbing, gulping, and galloping-mustn't be late for class, you know. There is seldom time to exchange more than a brief hello at the table, never time really to talk with friends. The addition of ten minutes to each of our present twenty-minute periods would remedy this state of affairs. This ten minutes would allow the feminine element of the student body time to wash their hands and repair damaged make-up, and also still have sufficient time to eat enough food and to do this while exhibiting decent manners. The boys, too, might use this ten minutes to good avail in working off outside the cafeteria some of the exuberance that causes so much of the commotion inside the cafeteria. Last year a plan was instituted whereby the periods were lengthened, a plan meeting the approval of everyone, but one which was dropped after a week's trial for no apparent reason. At home we are not expected to prepare for lunch, swallow it, and be somewhere in twenty minutes. Why are we ex- pected to do so at school? THE DEFENSE SCHOOL To the Senior boys who have completed the machine shop course and to those for whom it is just beginning the future holds promise. A trade, a lucrative position, and security are the evident gains, aside from the fact that they are aiding our national defense effort. Far-sighted individuals can realize that this de- fense school should not be permitted to close down entirely at the end of the conflict, it should be con- verted, to provide shop training as part of the curriculum. Educators are aware that most students conclude their formal education with high school graduation. Our present curriculum, while it does prepare students for college, does not help sufficiently those who will not seek higher education. Evidently some measure for preparing this majority for the requirements of the working world is necessary. Shop training is one solution. Of course, the school authorities, and not the gov- ernment, would have to own the machines, as is the present case. While the cost of establishing such machine training in N. H. S. would undoubtedly entail extended expense, the benefits resulting would easily counterbalance the incidental cost. GIFT OF CLASS OF 1925 Th M. I. T. trophy, recently acquired by the basketball team as a result of winning the State Class B Championship, is not the only point of interest in the alcove. Many pupils are lured to this spot by the new trophy case, a walnut cabinet with glass doors. Even before the M. I. T. plaque was obtained, the new case attracted the attention and admiration of nearly every one who came into the high school. The increase in the number of trophies, which our football, baseball, and basketball heroes have won during the past few years, necessitated the purchase of the new cabinet to replace the old one, the gift of the Class of 1911 many years ago. There are in the cabinet at present about twenty trophies, including two which were won in 1897, also six footballs, a basketball, and a baseball, souvenirs of victorious games. The new cabinet was purchased last February with money from the fund left to the school by the Class of 1925. SENIOR USHERS With the introduction of senior girl ushers, the traffic problem at N. H. S. has been solved. The interchanging of up and down stairways has also ' PAGE NINE NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD been an asset in speeding up traffic. The rotary system now enables pupils to reach classes which are in the same wing of the building, but on different floors, without traveling the whole length of the building. The usher system, started as an experi- ment, has proved effective in that corridors between classes are now more orderly. The cooperation on the part of teachers, pupils, and ushers has been found commendablel Ushers perhaps might well adopt the slogan of defense workers, "Keep 'em rollin'." CURE FOR AN AILING WORLD The best thing that I can think of to prescribe for an ailing world is religion on rising and retiring, thankfulness pills before meals, and kindness used throughout the day as needed. Carol Furlong '45 Many people of Newburyport will remember the father and mother of Richard Patterson, to whose memory this issue is dedicated. His mother is Pauline Colby of the Class of 1911, and his father taught in our high school during 1920-1921 . They are now living in Berlin, Connecticut. The pictures used in this issue, with the exception of the one of Mr. Nock and Mr. Noyes in the '24 Assembly which was the work of Hugh Allen '42, were taken by Kay Baur '4O. We know you will like the conclusion of our mystery story, the first installment of which was published in our December issue. Considerable interest resulted in the submitting of nine entries, every one of which successfully extricated jack Frosh, -but the prize goes to jean Magowan '42. We take pleasure in presenting to our readers the work of a new member of our staff, Record cartoonist, Paul Ryan '43. THE RECORD MAIL BAG CONVICTIONS OF A DEFENSE SHOP SENIOR To the Editor: The starting of a machine shop in the Newbury- port High School was one of the smartest things done in recent years. This shop should have been started years ago instead of waiting for a national emergency. Even when we were not at war the machine shop would help boys to become semi-skilled in the trade of a machinist. Many boys waste their time taking college and commercial courses because most of them do not go on to school afterwards. These same boys who are interested in machines do little studying of academic subjects, which do not interest them. After the war is over, I believe the school board should devise some method for making possible a regular machine shop course in Newbury- port High School. Very truly yours, John Rolfe '42 PAGE TEN HOW MANY AGREE? To the Editor of the Record: At sometime during his high school career, nearly everyone from the lowly freshman to the high and mighty senior has had the misfortune to be given the music room for a study hall. Perhaps you wonder why it is such a misfortune. In the first place, it makes you feel as though you were buried alive, for all you can see when you gaze out the window is a cement wall with a few weeds growing over the top, towering six feet above your head. Of course, if you are an optimist you can get some consolation from the fact that it would make a good air raid shelter. This thought doesn't last long, however, because when you start to do your homework and ask for paper, you find there is no paper. You are told that you should have brought some paper from your home room. You start to explain that this is your home room, but give up, knowing that it is useless to argue. On the way back to your seat you decide to look at the menu and choose your lunch. NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD Alas, you find that there is no bulletin board and that the menu is lost. As the period wears on, the general gloom heightens and you wonder what time it is. You are kept from indulging in your frequent pastime of looking at the clock because there is no clock. You try to make the watches of your friends serve instead, but when you are caught packing your books five minutes early you realize that the watches are a very unsatisfactory substitute for an office clock. Then at last the bell rings, and you are a part of the grand rush for the door, making a futile attempt to reach the third fioor before the bell rings. This picture of the music room during a study period is really not exaggerated at all. In fact, the juniors who have it for a homeroom suffer even worse inconveniences. If this room must be used next year, we music room inhabitants feel that we deserve at least a clock and if not a blackboard, a bulletin board to help bring this room up to the standards of the other classrooms. Very truly yours, Nancy Weare '43 KEEP 'EM FLYIN' To the Editor: Although many of us are building model planes for the govemment during war time, we have no established club. There should be a model airplane club for those who really would appreciate it. Such a group would be of much help to the United States. The club could build models to train spotters. The club would also prepare boys for further work in airplane factories and help in the study of aviation. The club members could practice spotting airplanes with pictures and models. There is plenty of opportunity for a very good club in school. The gym could be obtained for in- door flying and contests. The stadium could be used for outdoor contests and fiying. Both places could have the audience cut off from the contestants in order to protect the contestants' models. The club would not need to lay all stress on model-making, there could be talks on air currents, thermals, airfoil, and many other important elements of aeronautics. There could also be exhibitions of solid models. Building models for the government, however, would be the most important club Work. Model-makers would not only build their models but they could also test them in wind tunnels. Modelers not interested in making models could take pictures of anything to do with aviation and mount the pictures for practice in spotting planes. Others could study the reaction of different forces of air on models, propellers, and wings. These people could give talks on their work. The fact should be stressed that no one could join just for fun. All members would be requested to have some activity in aviation. Respectfully, David Simms '44 REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR To the Editor: Several days ago I visited the Anna Jaques and the Worcester Memorial Hospitals to interview the head nurses on the subject of how well prepared our hospitals are for air-raid. I think every member of N. H. S. may be interested in the following facts: All nurses carry blue iiashlights, and all unnecessary lights are put out, except in the delivery and the operating rooms. The skylights are protected in two ways, flj by steel sheets on the outside, and CZJ by mesh wire on the inside. There are sand and axes on all of the top floors at convenient places. The Anna Jaques Hospital is ready for a 30W increase. Its T-B hospital has many beds to be used if necessary. The Worcester Memorial Hospital has all its windows protected by sisalcraft, a board that is water-proof and glass proof. I was told that all the victims will be taken into the nearest house, where they will be examined. The slightly injured will be given first aid right there while the more seriously injured will be taken to a hospital. In front of the hospital will be a woman with a white band on her arm, who will direct the ambulance to the front door, from there the men will be taken to one room, the women to another, and the children to a third. The patient will be seen by a doctor, who will determine the extent and nature of the injuries. The bumed patients will go to the Worcester Memorial Hospital, the others, to the Anna Jaques. The personnel of the hospital and the medical units will report to their posts, ready for duty when the PAGE ELEVEN NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD air-raid signal sounds, as Dr. Snow, who is the head of all of the staff, has ordered. Our hospitals have been prepared for air-raids since Dec. 7, 1941, when we heard that Pearl Harbor had been attacked. Very truly yours, Richard Foley '44 GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE To the Editor of the Record: Well, another football season has ended. You remember we had our own band to lead us, the baton corps, at the games last fall. It certainly was f'swell". Now the talk is on new majorette uniforms for next fall. As you know, the football team, cheer- leaders, and band have theirs bought for them, while the baton corps must buy their own. We are planning to have a woman make our uniforms, they will cost us five to ten dollars. I think this is a considerable amount to expect us to pay, don't you? We wouldn't mind this so much if we got a little credit for the work we do. When it is good weather, we practice two afternoons a week marching on the field. Yes, I know we are mentioned in the paper, but most of the write-ups seem to be praising the band or the cheerleaders. They seldom give us any credit. Other schools do! Even though I am graduating this year and won't be able to lead them next year, I will stick by them and praise them, for I know how hard they work to entertain the public at games. Sincerely, Mildred Goldsmith '42 STRAIGHT THINKING To the Editor of the Record: Usually a pupil says the school day should be shortened. I believe, however, that it should be lengthened. Before my fellow classmates have time to jump down my throat, I must explain. The average student has four subjects daily. When he gets home from school, in order to prepare the next day's assignments thoroughly he should spend at least two hours working. Now I ask the question, how many pupils do spend at least two hours on their homework? I'm sorry to say that I don't, and there are many more like me. In a few homes, as in my PAGE TWELVE own, the parents make it compulsory for their chil- dren to spend at least one hour at studies. But seldom is there time enough for a pupil to do his studying thoroughly. If, however, the school day were lengthened at least one and one-half hours and each student were given at least two study periods at the end of the school day, students would prepare their lessons much better than they prepare them now. In school the pupil is watched by a teacher who sees that he keeps busy every minute. I am sure that every student would prefer doing his studies in school. The question may arise as to why if a pupil had rather study in school he doesn't arrange it so that he can study in the "detention" room. This question can be answered easily. The pupil knows that he doesn't have to be there studying and is inclined to "skip" a day or twog in that way little is accomplished. Although my routine would bring protests from both pupils and teachers, I know that many pupils would agree with me if they did some honest thinking. 4 Very truly yours, Lilly Fotinopoulos '42 CHANCE FOR IMPROVEMENT Dear Editor: Among one third of the student body of Newbury- port High School, there is dissatisfaction that is growing stronger day by day. I refer to the con- ditions of the cafeteria during the third lunch period, which are definitely in bad shape. The menu is taken down before half of the pupils arrive. After the first ten minutes have elapsed, one has to be a husky, fear- inspiring football hero or a charming coed to get money changed. Often the popular dishes are gone, and one has to be satisfied with a substitute. Then to top it all, the candy counter is closed before the period is up. Thus far, although there has been considerable talk about this matter, nothing has been done. A good solution would be to inter-change the first and third lunch periods. Perhaps, with two thirds of the student body disapproving of the existing circumstances, the proper authorities would be stimulated to investigate. I know there are many assenting voices backing up my idea. Respectfully, Mary M antarian '42 NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD FRESHMAN AGREES WITH SENIOR To the Editor: The cafeteria is used every day, probably more than any other room in the school. The lunch period breaks the monotony of the school day. In the cafeteria the students have a chance to talk with their old friends and get acquainted with new ones. It seems to me as soon as I sit down to eat after pur- chasing my lunch the bell rings. If at least ten minutes were added to the lunch period it would be a great help. Everyone knows that there is always a long line either purchasing food or having their money changed. This slows up progress, and when you have only twenty minutes in which to eat every minute counts. Some people who are in line can't make up their minds about what they want and this also holds up traffic. After these slow-ups are al- lowed for, one has to swallow his food whole and hurry to get to his next class. These are a few of the basic reasons why I think the lunch period should be lengthened. Another fault I find with the cafeteria is the variety and amount of food. A person eating in the third lunch period must take what is left or go without. I think there could be more meat sandwiches. As many different kinds of sandwiches as there are, I think there is room for improvement in the variety of the food of the cafeteria. Respectfully, Wendell Webber '45 TAKE A DARE! To the Editor: I believe that everyone in N. H. S. has experienced a meeting with the ushers at one time or another. Many of the students do not like the idea of having the ushers, but if they were to stand in the usher's place, they would notice the great change that has taken place in regard to the traffic. The ushers are not for the purpose of dictating to the students, but rather for serving as reminders in the course of traffic. If the pupils were more willing to take advice and would not form the opinion that the usher is trying to be a "big shot," many disadvantages could be re- moved. Especially at a time like the present, one should be willing to take orders and carry them out instead of disobeying. If all students obeyed, in due time there would be no ushers, because this would prove that N. H. S. pupils can follow directions and do not have to be watched. Can the student body of N. H. S. take a dare? Very truly yours, Olga Pizar '42 WANTED, MORE ASSEMBLIES To the Editor of the Record: "Why can't we have more assemblies?" is the question many of the students, including myself, ask. I have thought it out carefully, and I think this would be a satisfactory way to plan assemblies every week, or every two weeks, preferably on Fridays. We have many talented students who could present an entertaining performance, and would be willing to give their services. There would be very little ex- pense, if any. A capable student or a teacher could be chosen to select the chairman of each assembly. Let the chair- man know at least a month ahead of time so there would be no excuses for not being ready. Then have the chairman select the students to give the per- formance. Choose plays or skits to emphasize a certain idea, mostly on ways to help in defense. A radio hook-up would be interesting. With the curtains closed, the impression would be created that the sound was coming out of the radio, and also, the performers wouldn't feel so nervous. I hope that these suggestions will help to bring about more assemblies. Yours very truly, Mary Lee Henry '44 PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED To the Editor: The problem of where to put my books in the typing room at Newburyport High School is bothering, me. Our teacher has told us to put them on the floor under our chairs. Of course, this is putting them out of the way, but when we pick them up at the end of the period, they are covered with dust. The dust invari- ably comes off the books and gets on our clothes, making it necessary to send our skirts to the cleaners several more times than we should under the right conditions. PAGE THIRTEEN NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD We are not allowed to put the books on our desks because this makes the room look cluttered and gives a bad appearance. You know, an office girl should be neat! I think the authorities should either see that dusters are supplied to dust off our books or have some shelves put under our chairs so that we can keep our offices looking clean and get an A for neatness both in and out of the typing room. Respectfully, Ruth Langlois '43 SPEAK UP, GIRLS! To the Editor of the Record: Athletics in Newburyport High School seem to be meant only for boys. Football season in the fall starts the school year off with a bang. Every Saturday or Friday night hundreds flock to games, but it's all for the boys. Then basketball games are started and there are articles in the paper concerning them, and tournament and conference championships follow. Why can't girls have some part in athletics too? Of course, girls can't play football, but there are other sports. Football coaches are hired and excellent equipment is bought. Our fine stadium is built and anything and everything needed is supplied. Basketball is the same, fine uniforms and necessary equipment are purchased. Why ca.n't the girls at N. H. S. have a basketball team and be as well provided for? Why can't we play games with other schools and enter tournaments? In other schools they do it. Why can't we? Besides basketball there are other games, volley ball and field hockey, but we never even hear of these. Do you believe that if we showed more enthusiasm the Athletic Council might do something about it? Basketball games have been started by our physical instructor, but nothing seems to come of it. The G. A. A. has been organized and each year all the schools around meet and have a day of fun. Why couldn't we get a few schools interested and have competition between them, such as that of the boys' basketball team? Very truly yours, Carolyn Kelly '44 STOP, LOOK, AND THINK To the Editor: One of the criticisms to be made of the students at Newburyport High School is the fact that they don't PAGE FOURTEEN seem to appreciate the building. We are fortunate in having one of the most modern and best equipped high schools in the state. Yet evidence of abuse of the building by the students is visible almost any- where a person tums. One sees on the arm-chairs epitaphs which the student spends hours diligently carving, in order that his memory may be preserved for posterity. The walls and furniture have suffered much in the comparatively short time the high school has been standing. Perhaps if the student who finds such savage amusement in deteriorating our building were taken on a field trip to view the conditions which students in other schools are subjected to, our own beautiful building would be treated as though it were composed entirely of glass. We, as students, would undoubtedly also appreciate our present place of learning if we were suddenly transferred to the old high school where, for many years, our predecessors literally risked their lives by attending daily classes. But, as neither a field trip nor a migration is probable, other means must be relied upon to preserve the life of our building. Try to foresee the conditions of the building ten years hence, if the present practices continue. Each one can do his or her part by refraining from actual participation in the acts mentioned, and by preventing others from doing so. This should not involve physical combat between agitator and arbitrator. Surely anyone living in a great democracy such as ours can be made to see the wrong in what may seem petty now, but which may lead to much more serious consequences in the future.

Frances Gerow '44 But tonight, while she is still at anchor, there are NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD LIFE ON A BATTLEWAGON At two bells of the first dog-watch the officer-of- the-deck calls a boat alongside. "All visitors clear the ship! " The dreadnaught now resumes her private life- strange, hard, seafaring life that people of the land never see. Tomorrow she'll be far offshore, out on the target range making eighteen knots. Bugle and alarm gongs will call all hands to battle stations with the gunnery trophy at stake. other fascinating moments of battleship life never seen by shore dwellers. The midnight watch, for instance, the hours between midnight and 4 a. m., when the long decks are lit by dim blue battle lanterns, silent except for the hum of ventilation blowers, the throb of a pump somewhere deep in the ship, and the reassuring noise of men asleep. Day or night the outstanding feature of a battle- ship is her huge crew. "Battleship" means ship-of-the- line-of-battle. It is the largest, heaviest type of naval vessel-35,000 tons is the usual size of today with 45,000 tons and larger being constructed. Fourteen hundred gobs live aboard a dreadnaught, set apart from an equal number of human beings because they are team trained and willing to act together. One realizes how stupendous the ship is when he goes out on deck. He looks aloft past the mammoth silhouettes of bulky turrets, up at masts and stacks, boats nested in cradles, and long muzzles of guns forming uncompromising bars against the stars. At the yardarm tips the blinker lights are winking mes- sages in code. Out there on deck the ship never sleeps. About a quarter of the crew-one "section"-is on duty for each four-hour night watch. When she lies at anchor the number is smaller. The officer of the deck is in charge of the ship as the captain's personal representative. Navy regula- tions decree that while on watch he is "senior" to everyone on board except the captain and the ex- ecutive officer. From the moment the bugle breaks the stillness of the morning with the shattering notes of reveille, the day is organized down to the last second. The whole ship's company is divided into divisions. Each division has a "part of the ship" to take care of, and a part of each day is spent in housewifery-cleaning corners, shining brasswork, scrubbing paint, and caring for other minor details. No house ashore gets as much attention. Following cleaning, the serious business of man-o- war life begins. The secret of winning battles is learning how to fight them. A battleship spends most of its time in anticipation of trouble. There's a plan for everything: collision, fire, breakdown at sea, and man over-board. Every sailor knows his assign- ment for each emergency. Above all, there are plans for battles-battles against submarines, battles against destroyers, battles against other battleships, battles against planes, battles at sea alone, battles as part of the fleet, battles by day, and battles by night. A battleship fights with guns-the flares she carries are for spotting gunfire. She has heavy guns. fourteen or sixteen inch, in turrets for long range shooting at heavy targets. She has five inch rapid guns to use against submarines or destroyers. She has five inch semi-automatic anti-aircraft guns, and batteries of pom-poms and machine guns for shooting at planes. Shooting the batteries is the most exciting part of battleship life. Each target practice is a milestone in the year, worked up to through days and weeks of intensive drilling. Loading crews go through prac- tice hundreds of times, heaving dummy shells and powder charges into ffloading machines," while officers time them with stop watches. Gun layers, range finders, plotting room crew-the whole "gunnery gangi' of 600 men iron out the kinks in an organization that ranges from the control "tops," where the guns are aimed by electric "di- rectors," to the bowels of the ship where electric mechanical calculators figure the gun-range. Then the shoot, and the score, and the ship's standing in the fleet. At the end of the year there's the Gunnery Trophy and a white E on the conning-tower for the ship standing number one. Gunnery is sport-in gunnery you shoot at a raft. Battle is something else-in battle the target shoots back. Preparation for battle finds a job for every man on board. "A ship is a living thing. Battle wagons are the most queenly of ships. Battle wagons become sym- bols. You work for fthe ship.' You fight for her. She binds you and your shipmates together. She's your home, your fort, and somehow she's your mistress." Irving Dickie, '42 PAGE FIFTEEN NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD OUR GOAL We are out to conquer! That's our only goal.

He was a tall man, about thirty, with a weak chin and shifty eyes, who knew that if he turned back the gang of police that had been hounding him would catch up. He took the first step up the long flight and glanced back. Sure enough, there they were. They had him cornered. Though they hadn't seen him yet, he knew that when they did they would shout and try to catch him. "Darn those cops, any- way," he thought as he raced around the first landing out of sight of those eyes below. "They would make things so hot for a guy that he'd have to do this. Well, it was better this way if he had the nerve to go through with it." The stairs seemed to stretch for miles. He finally made the top, puffing like a locomotive. There, now for the hardest part. He sidled to the edge and looked down. He turned quickly. It was a long way down, and he didn't have a very strong stomach. "If a man dove off and hit way down PAGE SIXTEEN there-" He shuddered and closed his eyes. "Well, it's the only way out. Now, steady, old man, take it easy. Thatls it." The police down below saw him now and were shouting and waving frantically. "Now, back up. Ready, now! Three leaps took him to the edge. Then, out! Out into space he dived! It didn't hurt as you cleaved the water. It was just as the boys had said it was going to be. The boys dived in after him and waited for him to come up.

And so Jack Davis was initiated into the Swimming Cops Club. Harry M iller, '45 LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS I believe in Life. Why? Because I love it. So far my life has been fun. Well, most of it has been anyway. My most frequent worries, if that's what you want to call them, are how to make my al- lowance last until Saturday, what dress to wear to the next dance, and how to tell that awful boy I don't want to go to the movies with him. But these are only trivial things that won't last forever, and I know it. I realize I'll have to make my way in a selfish and confused world. But somehow I know that even when I have taken the bitter with the better, I will still love life. I believe in Liberty, for what is life without liberty? It must mean something to people just like me all over the world, or why would they be fighting and dying for it? Our ancestors came to this country for one reason, liberty! Freedom to do as they pleased and the right to worship as they pleased. When something threatened their freedom, they fought for it until victory was theirs. Today some- one threatens our freedom, and again we must fight hard for it so that we may give to our children what they died to give to us. Liberty! I believe in the Pursuit of Happiness. Friends, par- ents, love, the right to worship as you choose, and the fulfilment of your ambitions-all go into the formula for making happiness. In Germany your life even before you are born is planned for you. You will be a useful tool for Hitler. You live for him only, and eventually you will probably die for NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD him. But here in America it's different. You can set a goal for yourself in the world and you have the privilege of working your tingers to the bone to reach that goal. I have just scratched the surface, but even these are pretty serious thoughts for me Perhaps it would have been simpler to say, "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness mean America."

'43 MY FIRST SWEATER My troubles all began about three long months ago when some misguided and deluded individual handed me live skeins of yarn, two knitting needles, and a page of completely mystifying directions, and told me to knit a sweater for the Red Cross, and I in a flash of momentary weakness accepted the responsibility, little realizing the long hours of labor ahead of me. I had never before tried my hand at knitting a sweater, but if Madame Defarge could do it, so could I. For a week the yarn lay in a corner of my bureau drawer while I cheerfully forgot all about it, but one memorable night I reluctantly dragged it out and sat down to look the situation over. The situation did not look very promising, for the directions completely baffled me. It seemed to me that 1 had heard somewhere about casting on stitches, but I had not the remotest idea how to go about it. Finally I decided that the most sensible thing to do was to wind the yarn into balls first, probably that would simplify everything. However, after winding up two balls of it, I was thoroughly bored and decided to try casting on stitches for better or Qmore likelyl for worse. Using the simplest of methods, I just wound the yarn around the needle ninety-six times, but when I finished and let go of the yarn it im- mediately unwound, much to my disgust. Evidently something had gone wrong because obviously I would not get very far if that continued to happen. Having made this clever deduction, I went to seek help and returned to my directions triumphantly, with ninety- six stitches cast on, according to Hoyle. The next line read, "Work in ribbing, KZ, PZ for two and a half inches." Well, I would be all set as soon as I found out what KZ, PZ meant. It sounded more like a secret code message than knitting direc- tions. Perhaps I had discovered an international spy- ring! I mentioned this possibility to my mother, who informed me scornfully that it meant knit Z, purl Z. Now why hadn't I thought of that? Having done two and a half inches of ribbing, as it is called for some unknown reason, I was ready to proceed to the stockinette stitch for thirteen and a half inches. Now what in the name of humanity was the stockinette stitch? My pride kept me from inquiring, so I went along in my own sweet way. Needless to say, I was wrong. Accordingly I unravelled my painfully knitted strip, to face the problem of putting the stitches back on the needle, one of the most agonizing tasks I had ever performed. My nerves were shattered long be- fore I had finished. Finally in despair I ripped the whole thing out and did not start again until two weeks later, for I felt that I could not look upon that abominable yarn for some time. The second time, however, I came out better. Everything went fairly well until I came to the shoulder and neck Qwith the exception of a few holes scattered about where I had inadvertently split a stitchj. I discovered that the directions at this point became very complicated, but courageously I con- tinued, with the result being one of the most un- natural looking shoulders I had ever beheld. I dis- regarded this peculiarity and continued until I had finished as well the back, which also was sporting several holes. The next step was the sleeves, where matters went from bad to worse, as I entered upon a very complicat- ed system of taking off stitches, a severe tax for my already over-worked mentality. Having completed the sleeves in due time, I came to the neck, which when finished looked too small for any human to push his head through. The Red Cross may have some difficulty in dis- posing of my sweater, for any soldier who can get any degree of comfort out of it will have to fulfill several requirements: he will have to be very tall and broad, but with an exceedingly small head, he should have one arm considerably longer than the PAGE SEVENTEEN NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD other, and, above all, he should possess a passion for ventilation because whatever the faults of my work may be no one can truthfully say that it does not have adequate ventilation. Virginia Jacob, '43 COPPERHEAD My name is Copperhead but my friends call me Coppy. My first memory is the day I stumbled out on the floor of the First National Bank when a clumsy teller dropped me. Oh, what a bump! It was in this bank I met the Nickels, Dimes, Quarters, Half-dollars, and all the rest who belong to the League of Money. I liked the little Dimes best because they talked in a nice silvery tone, where- as the Nickels only grunted "ugh" as Indians always do. Of course, Quarters and Fifties are mostly women and who wants to talk to women anyway? A fat man soon picked me up with his big brawny fingers and dropped me deep in his dark pocket, where I remained with other money and rolled around with the motion of his fat body until he exchanged me for a newspaper. Two gloved fingers snatched me up from the paper boy for change, and again I found myself in someone's pocket. Only in this pocket nobody laughed and sang the way money does in other pockets. In fact, every one spoke in very frightened tones, for in the same pocket with us was a loaded automatic. A few minutes later we heard a muttered conversa- tion with a passerby, and the gunman crammed in among us a dirty scrap of paper, on which was scribbled, t'Get Phillips at once." Golly, you would think all the fellows in the pocket were named Phillips by their moaning, except, of course, a Dollar Bill and a Washington Quarter who always look stem, and the Nickel who reads only Indian sign language and never is afraid of anything. The Half Dollars were crying their heads off. "What about poor Phillips?" jingled a polite little Dime, whereupon all the big Half-Dollars and the Goddess Quarters began to cry even harder. "Stop that infernal weeping," demanded the Quarter. "We must help Phillips if we canil' cried the Dime. "I-low?" wailed a Half-Dollar. And all the rest chimed in, "How?" Even the Nickel said, f'How," because that's what he says most of the time anyhow. PAGE EIGHTEEN 'KI think I have a plan," said the Dollar Bill in an intelligent crinkly voice. 'LA very good plan, in fact. You all see how the barrel of the automatic is tearing a hole in this pocket? We must get close to the barrel-" Before he could say more, down came the hand and snatched him out of the pocket, leaving us without a leader. The Half-Dollars and Goddess Quarters fainted. I didn't know whether or not the Nickel fainted be- cause his eyes are always closed anyway. The Wash- ington Quarter, who wasn't a bit afraid, said in his usual stern voice, "Why do you destroy?" "Because I like to," said the automatic, coldly. "I was made to kill." "But why should you kill Mr. Phillips? You know nothing about him. Probably he has a wife and children. Think of the poor kids! His wife will become a widow, the kids will lose their daddy. There will be no one to buy them bread and butter or tell them bedtime stories. All, just because you, you stupid goof, have to kill their papa and destroy their lives forever." The automatic began to cry, "I don't want to make his kids orphinks. Bo-ho-wah-hal " And he cried all over the place. Then all the Quarters, Dimes and Half-Dollars, and, golly-gee, even I, began to cry! The Indian Nickel blew his nose the way men do in the movies during a sad picture. He finally grunted out, "Get close gun barrel. Every- body jump through hole when gun pulled out. When fall on sidewalk make much war whoop. Warn Phillips." We all waited tensely. Phillips' squeaky footsteps came nearer and nearer along the pavement. Suddenly the automatic was pulled from the pocket, and down through the hole we jumped, clinking and jingling on the sidewalk. I saw a frightened little man with a brief case, too scared to run, even after our trouble to warn him. The man facing him pulled the trigger, but the auto- matic said only, Hjammed, jammed," over and over again. We knew then the automatic had kept its promise. Phillips jumped into action. He flung his brief case down on the gunman's skull, striking a blow that echoed from the buildings down the street. The killer reeled and fell to the pavement, knocking me NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD across the sidewalk. Phillips stooped over and picked me up. - "Ah! A bright new penny! Illl keep it as a souvenir!"

Jennie -Ponas, '44 FRIENDS The bright snow-crusted slope was deserted except for two skiers who sped gayly downward past the little hotel around the snow-capped forest and finally pulled up beside a frozen brook. One of the skiers was a blond, blue-eyed giant of about twenty. The other was a brown-haired chap of eighteen.

Aja, Paul, the var vill not change dot. Ve vill always be friends? A lone Spitfire, its engine roaring, shot through the clouds over the Channel. Its pilot, a boy of about nineteen, eased back on the stick, and the speedy little fighter nosed up into the air. There, just below, with black crosses glaring defiantly, was a Messerschmitt! The Spitfire dipped, its guns bursting into action. The surprised German airman went into a loop, came out of the Britisher's tail, and opened fire. The Spitfire wavered, its pilot stiffened in pain, and blood trickled between his compressed lips. Then with one last effort, he zoomed and dived, his guns blazing. The German ilier's be- wildered face was lost in a wall of flame, and a few seconds later the waters of the Channel closed over him. The Englishman, with a tired smile on his face, collapsed in the cockpit as his plane disappeared in the clouds. Several days later the following notices appeared in Berlin and London, respectively: 'fLieut.

A few minutes later the professor hung his coat in the school cloakroom. A moment afterwards a group PAGE NINETEEN NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD of girls were penetrating his coat pockets. There was laughter, excitement, and much talk. Look, Irene, I've got a note from joe again!" My goodness! he can't come over tonight!" "0 boy! Alex has passed his exams.

But Professor B-- had a peculiar characteristic of never putting his hands into his pockets. The students, who know everything, knew this too. In discussing that phenomenon they came to the con- clusion that Professor Bk as a child must have had a bad habit of dumping everything into his pockets, a trick which greatly angered his mother. Une day, probably, the mother seeing that the habit was becoming worse and worse every day, sewed up all the pockets of her son's coats and suits, and thus cured him thoroughly of his boyish weakness. Professor B-, although a poet, a writer, and a widely known teacher of Polish literature, was also, unknowingly, the only carrier of love-notes between his pupils of the girls' school, number 126, and the boys' school, number 88. Agnes Benedict, '42 LOST, STRAYED OR STOLEN CConclusionJ It was the day after the mysterious disappearance of jack F rosh and the trophies, and the whole school was in an uproar. N. H. S. had not seen so much excitement since "Soup'l and his mob had graduated. Speculation rode on great waves, and the question on each and every person's lips was, "Where are they?" Many theories were presented to the school officials, and all of them were listened to with increasing im- patience. None of them seemed to be very practical, one person even going so far as to suggest that they might still be in the school. This idea was, of course, thrown out as fantastic. The principal questioned all of jack's closest friends, but they also could not fumish any light on the subject of his strange conduct. He had seemed as normal as usual the last time they had seen him. He always did seem a little preoccupied. The principal dismissed them all and strode worried- ly up and down his office. Suddenly a timid knock sounded on the corridor door. PAGE TWEN TY "Come in, come in,'l exclaimed the harassed prin- cipal. The door opened cautiously, and a head covered with flaming red curls poked itself around the corner. "Please, sir, may I come in?" queried the voice shakily. "It's about jack Frosh," he added as an afterthought. 'tOh, thank goodness. You know where he is, of course. just wait until I call my secretary. My, this is great news! Wait until jack's parents hear of this." The principal rose excitedly from his chair. f'Redl' had stood silently, his hands behind him, as the principal spoke, and then burst out, "But I only have his pants." The principal stared amazedly at the boy, who stood shifting his feet uneasily and holding up a pair of brown tweed pants. 'fWhere did you get those?" demanded the astonished principal. 'KI just took them for a joke. Honest! I didn't know he'd disappear. I gotta go." With that, he bolted from the room, overturning a chair in his haste. The news traveled through the N. H. S. grapevine, and in a few minutes the question on everybody's lips was, "Where is pantless jack?" Again the prin- cipal's office was bombarded with theories, none of which developed into anything. Then, suddenly, the mystery of the missing trophies was solved. The thief had been apprehended trying to pawn them in a small shop in a near-by city. Jack awoke once more. He turned over and moaned softly. Coming to full consciousness, he suddenly remembered his plight. His stomach felt as if it were knocking against his backbone, and he was very, very cold. Seeing a large box a few feet away, he crawled over to it and decided to get inside. It would be warmer in there, he thought to himself. At the Defense Shop things were going on as usual. Two of the boys were sent down to the tunnel to get a box that had been stored a, few feet from the ventilator. 1 "What a heavy box!" exclaimed one of the boys as they carried it up the gym stairs.

S. history. The team took seventeen out of nineteen games and won the Class B State Cham- pionship as well as the Conference Championship. The tive was captained by Don Zabriskie, scrappy little forward, who proved to be a great leader. One outstanding fact about this year's team was its scoring power. A pair of fme feeders in 'fZar" Garfi and johnny Kekopoulos, together with such all around players as johnson, Zabriskie, Woron, and Talas. made a combination hard to beat. johnson and Woron each scored well over two hundred points. After dropping the opener to Attleboro, the team chalked up twelve straight victories before bowing to Salem in the last seconds. As a grand finale they swept through the Tech 'Tournament without a loss. Congratulations to a great coach, Tom O'Donnell. and to his champion team! PAGE TWENTY-TWO ATTLEBORO 45 - N. H. S. ZZ December 30 at .Xttleboro The X. H. S. basketball team opened its 1942 season by dropping a 45-ZZ decision to Attleboro's Class A champions. The Clippers battled the jewel City live on fairly even terms in the hrst half, but wilted in the second half, when they scored only four points. Thirteen successful foul shots aided the Attleboro cause not a little. Vic Woron and Don Zabriskie dominated the scoring for Newburyport while center Tom Powers proved to be a one-man wrecking crew for Attleboro. The N. H. S. seconds evened the honors. however, by dropping the hometown team 37-33. N. H. S. 51 - SW'AMPSCU'l"l' ZS january 6 at Newburyport The N. H. S. basketeers shot their way into the victory column by trouncing Swampscott, Sl-ZS. With Vic Woron showing the way with twenty-one and Capt. Don Zabriskie helping with twelve, the locals NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD simply smothered the visitors. At half time the score was 26-11, and though the Sculpins improved in the second half, the Clippers just breezed home. The local seconds were not good enough for the Baby Sculpins who romped 38-19. Jimmie Zafris led the N. H. S. seconds with seven points. N. H. S. 51 - MARBLEHEAD 9 January 9 at Newburyport The Newburyport High basketball team rolled up fifty-one points for the second straight time as they stampeded a bewildered Marblehead team 51-9. Shooting from all angles, the Clippers led 17-1 in the first period, increased this at the half, and led 37-4 in the third period. Gerald johnson with six- teen, and Vic Woron and Don Zabriskie with thirteen paced the victors. The Magicians were unable to get a basket until the last minute when they made two. The Marblehead seconds toppled the 'Port Cubs 22-10 in the preliminary, with Bill Brown and jim Zafris leading the local scorers. N. H. S. 35 - DANVERS 22 January 13 at Danvers Newburyport's basketball team was forced to come out from behind to trim a scrappy Danvers team 35-22 in the Onion Town. Paced by Dick King, the Vyemen led the visitors 19-16 at the half, but Newburyport's fast play in the second half forced Danvers to drop out. Again it was Gerald Johnson who with fifteen points led the O'Donnellmen's attack. Don Zabriskie caged five fouls and a basket to come in second. The.Clipper Cubs were edged out in the last minute by the Turnpike seconds 29-28. Freshman Jimmy Zafris netted hfteen points to take scoring honors. N. H. S. 41 - PORTSMOUTH 37 January 16 at Newburyport Before one of the biggest crowds ever to gather in the gym, the N. H. S. hoop team handed Ports- mouth High its first defeat of the season, 41-37. The game, witnessed by as many Portsmouth fans as Newburyporters, was one of the toughest in many a moon. The locals got the jump on the visitors, grabbing a 15-8 lead in the first period, but the New Hampshire champions tied it up 20-20 at the half. The teams battled neck and neck down to the last three minutes, when Newburyport pulled away from the Granite Staters. Capt. Don Zabriskie led the local scorers with fourteen points, and Gerald johnson was second with thirteen. Gaudreault was tops for Portsmouth. The N . H. S. seconds lost to Portsmouth's second team 32-20. jim Zafris led the scoring. e N. H. S. 64 - SAUGUS 33 January 20 at Saugus Rolling up its biggest score in recent years, the Newburyport High basketball team rolled over the hapless Sachems of Saugus 64-33. Shooting from all angles, the Clippers amazed the Saugus fans by their accuracy. Johnson and Woron garnered twenty points apiece, while Don Zabriskie was a close third. The Clipper Cubs made it unanimous by staggering in with a 16-11 win. V N. H. S. 36 - AMESBURY 18 january 23 at Amesbury With the biggest crowd in Amesbury's history looking on, the N. H. S. hoopsters handed the Red and White five its iirst defeat of the year, 36-18. The game got off to a slow start, only seven points being scored in the first quarter, four of these for H. S. The visitors began to gather speed in the third period and came down the stretch eighteen points to the good. Amesbury fans, expecting a hometown victory, were mildly surprised- at' the outcome. The Crimson seconds again bowed, this time 32-24. Jimmy Zafris again led the scoring. N. H. S. 43 - SWAMPSCOTT 31 January 27 at Swampscott The Newburyport High basketeers continued their winning ways as they tipped over Swampscott, 43-31, for the second time. Gerald Johnson netted twenty- two points to lead all scorers, with Vic Woron second. The Sculpins put up a fine battle, with Freiberg leading their attack, but the O'Donnellmen were not to be denied. The luckless N . H. S. second team dropped another close one, 29-28, with Mike Twomey clinching the scoring honors. NEWBURYPORT 25 - MARBLEHEAD 19 January 30 at Marblehead In chalking up their eighth straight win the N . H. S. cagemen met with unexpected resistance from PAGE TVVENTY-THREE NEWBURYPORT HIGH RE CORD Marblehead as they edged the Yachtsmen Z5-19. The Clippers were held to their second lowest score. of the season, but this did not stop Vic Woron from scoring sixteen points. Capt. Don Zabriskie was second with seven. The Magicians' fine defense overshadowed their feeble scoring, Capt. Shepard leading with only eight points. The Clipper Cubs sailed out of the fog by topping the Marblehead seconds ZZ-19, with Bill Brown and Jim Zafris doing most of the scoring. N. H. S. 54 - MANCHESTER Z1 january 31 at Manchester The N. H. S. basketeers made it nine in a row as they dropped Story High of Manchester, 54-21. The fast sailing Clippers merely played with their scrappy opponents. Gerald johnson, eagle-eyed N. H. S. forward who was held to a single point at Marblehead, came back to score sixteen, while Vic Woron and Don Zabriskie were runners up. The N. H. S. seconds were forced to bow out before the speedy seashore seconds. jim Zafris and liill Brown led the Clippers' scoring. N. H. S. 55 - DANVERS 10 February 3 at Newburyport For the fourth time in five years an N .H.S. basket- ball team won the Northeastern Conference champion- ship. A 55-10 trimming given to Danvers turned the trick this time. The Onion Towners, who had given the O'Donnellmen a terrific battle in their last meeting, wilted before the fast, deceptive basketeering of the locals. Gerald Johnson and Vic Woron each notched fourteen points, while "Zar" Garfi was third with ten. Fine passing and deadly shooting were the main factors in the Clippers' revenge. The N. H. S. seconds also had a field day, routing the visitors 41-6. jimmy Zafris, the Freshman Flash, who played only three periods, garnered twenty-one points to pace the day's scorers. Bill Brown was second with eleven. N. H. S. 66 - SAUGUS 15 February 10 at Newburyport Continuing their policy of slaughtering the opposi- tion, the N. H. S. basketeers ran their winning streak to eleven wins as they routed Saugus 66-15. Vic Woron with twenty-four and Tim Talas with eighteen led the Clippers' attack, while Don Zabriskie and Gerald johnson tallied twelve apiece. The locals PAGE TWENTY-FOUR netted thirty-two baskets, and only two points were garnered by the foul route. The local seconds led by Jimmy Zafris topped the Saugus Cubs Z5-4. N. H. S. 38 - PORTSMOUTH Z9 February 13 at Portsmouth The N. H. S. basketball team ran its winning streak to twelve games as it sank the Clippers of Portsmouth 38-Z9. Portsmouth, which had put up a terrific battle earlier in the season, was outclassed thoroughly this time. Vic Woron and Gerald johnson were the spearheads of the visitors' attack, while Gaudreault led the Granite Staters. The Newburyport second team was forced to bow to the Portsmouth seconds. SALEM 39 - N. H. S. 37 February 16 at. Salem An underdog, Salem High five sprang a surprise on the high-flying 'Porters when it edged the O'Donnell- men 39-37 in a thrill-packed game in the Witch City. Led by Dylingowski, their rangy forward who netted fourteen points, the Witches pulled ahead in the second quarter and were never headed, though the winning basket was still in the air when the gun went off. johnson, with fifteen points, was high scorer for N. H. S. The Salem seconds also won, beating the Clipper Cubs 30-19. Zafris and Brown led the scoring for Newburyport. N. H. S. 41 - AMESBURY 10 February Z1 at Newburyport A much weakened Amesbury five fell easy prey to Tom O'Donnell's N . H. S. hoopmen, who romped off with a 41-10 win. Gerald johnson, speedy forward, and Vic Woron, skyscraping center, again were the spearheads of the local attack. The passing and shooting of the Clippers so bewildered the up-river boys that they were unable to get moving. This was the fifteenth straight Conference win for Newburyport. N. H. S. 67 - SALEM Z8 February Z7 at Newburyport In a glorious climax to their 1942 season, the New- buryport High basketball players sent the cheers of hundreds of fans echoing all over town as they rolled over Salem 67-28. This was the first H. S. basket- ball victory over Salem in many years. Gerald John- son, sensational Clipper forward, tossed fourteen baskets for twenty-eight points to lead all scorers. NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD Dylingowski, Salem forward, was the bright light in the Witches' defeat, a thom in the N. H. S. side all night. With Vic Woron, Don Zabriskie, "Zar" Garfi and johnson shooting baskets from all sides, the Salemites never had a chance. All they could do was battle gamely down to the finish. N. H. S. 69 - BELMONT 34 March 11 at Cousens Gymnasium fTuftsJ The N ., H. S. hoop team took the first game in the M. I. T. tournament by downing a scrappy Belmont five 69-34. The game was fairly close for three periods with Belmont doggedly holding on, but thirty- five N. H. S. points in. the last period turned the victory into a rout. "Zar" Garfi caged twenty-four points to lead the scoring, while Vic Woron with nineteen was a close second. N. H. S. 54 - ROCKLAND 30 March 13 at Cousens Gymnasium CTuftsl Newburyport won its way into the Tech finals by trimming Rockland High 54-30. After a slow start, the Clippers, attack steadily gained fire, with Gerald Johnson and Tim Talas providing the spark. Con- sistent attempts at long shots also contributed to Rockland's downfall. Johnson was high scorer with sixteen points, while Capt. Don Zabriskie was runner up. Scott, Rockland's star guard, netted fifteen points to pace the losers. N. H. S. 45 - BRAINTREE 34 March 14 at Cousens Gymnasium fTuftsl The Newburyport High basketball team won the Class B State Championship as it rocked Braintree, defending champs, 45-34. Jumping to a 12-8 lead in the first period the locals were never headed, posting scores of Z6-13 and 34-Z4 in the second and the third periods. Again it was Johnson and Woron leading the Newburyport assault, Johnson with twelve and Woron with eleven. Braintree's Bob Mahar was great, but his effort alone couldn't stop the Clippers. After the game, Gerald Johnson, the year's highest scorer, was elected captain for next season. PAGE TWENTY-FIVE NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD BOOK ILTHE KEYS or THE KINGDOM," by A. J. Cronin "The Keys of the Kingdom" has everything a fine book should have: humor Qthough subtly expressedj, romance, a good story, impressive characters, and a good author. It is the story of a priest and his ad- ventures in England and China. Father Chisholm is a real hero fighting for what he believes in. Alvin Kessler '43 "Two SURvIvED," by Jones "Two Survived" is an exciting adventure, the story of two young English sailors, whose ship was sunk by a German surface raider. They managed to cross over three thousand miles of ocean to reach land, after drifting for seventy-two days. Kenneth Brooks '43 'LREVEILLE IN VVVASHINC-TON,u by Margaret Leach People of the Civil War are vividly brought to life in the pages of this book. Soldiers invading the capital, political prisoners by the score, spies im- prisoned in private houses, all add to the general chaos of Washington, the capital of a divided nation. Della Tilley '42 "THE BLACK TANKER,n by Howard Pease "The Black Tanker" by Howard Pease is by far the best sea story I have ever read. Within its covers is the story of a young man trying to reach his parents in war-torn China. Aboard the "Black Tanker" in which he takes passage, murders are committed and men disappear into thin air. Every page of this book is filled with suspense. Who will be the next victim of the unseen murderer? Will the ship be blown up, as planned, by Chinese trying to prevent the vital oil from reaching the Japs? For the answer to these questions and for true en- joyment read "The Black T anker." Joseph Fosillo '42 "Plan PlPER,H by N evil Shute Everyone has read about the f'Pied Piper of Hamelinng here is a modern Pied Piper. An elderly Englishman, vacationing in France at the time of the invasion by Germany, has started back to England with two English children, whose parents had to stay in Geneva. In the course of journeying, he gathers unto himself still more children. The thrilling ad- ventures of this company give a realistic picture of PAGE TWENTY SIX TALK France during the invasion. Nevil Shute, an English- man, has written of the present war several other telling novels, some of which are in the school library. John Adams '41 HTHEY WENT ON TOGETHER,n by Robert Nathan A vivid picture of the conditions in a bombed country. The story centers around a little family who are driven out of their home by the enemy. A wonderful story written in such a manner that it makes you feel as if you were there with the children and their mother. Roy Hiller '43 "JOAN AND MICHAEL," by M artin Gale The author of "Joan and Michael" is only a few years older than his two main characters. Perhaps this in itself explains his being able to solve for us satisfactorily the problems of a boy and a girl of today. If you are interested in reading a story about modern youth, be sure to read "joan and Michael." Betty Chase '42 HJUNGLE RIVER," by Howard Pease Don Carter is the hero of a new adventurous novel by Howard Pease. Don leaves California to go into the New Guinea jungle in search of his father, Dr. Carter. The author gives us a remarkable description of the savage beliefs of the New Guinea head hunters. I think the reader is bound to enjoy this new novel of Pease. Peter Jeuvelis '42 UTALLY Ho," by Arthur Donahue "Tally Ho" is an action packed book by Arthur Donahue, the first American to see service in this war as an officer of the R. A. F. When "Tally Ho", the order meaning to break formation and go into battle, appears on the pages, your spine tingles with an- ticipation of thrilling action. Frank Edwards '43 "MY FRIEND FLICKAH by Mary 0'Hara "My Friend Flicker" is the story of a boy's love for a horse and a mother's understanding love for her son. Flicka, a beautiful sorrel filly, has a wild streak in her, but through the kindness of her master, Ken, she is tamed. All lovers of horses should enjoy this book. James Carens '45 M0 R VOL. S, No. Z NEW TIMES NEW MANNICRS April 1942 Five Seniors Volunteer For Duty in U. S. Navy Newburyport High School is proud indeed of its tive seniors who are seamen in the United States Navy. john Donahue, the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Donahue, Tyng Street, joined the navy February 16. He is studying electrical engineering and enjoys it very much. He expects to be transferred tn Lake Erie soon. February lo, Charles Bashaw also joined the navy. l'-le is the son of Mrs. Ellen Bashaw and is studying aviation mechanics at Newport, Rhode Island, from which station he expects to be transferred to New- foundland. Stationed at Great Lakes, Illinois, is Leland 'tBucky" Giard, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilfred Giard, Mer- rimac Court. He, too, joined February 16, and is re- ceiving his preliminary training at the U. S. Naval Hospital at Great Lakes. On March 9, Hugh Allen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman j. Allen, Woodland Street, joined. His brother Clifford is serving in the air corps. Hugh writes from Newport, Rhode Island, where he is stationed, that he likes a sailor's life-especially kitchen duty. Donald Murphy joined the navy, March 17. He is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Jeremiah Murphy, Titcomb Street. His brother Billy is also in the navy. Donald likes it very much, especially his uniform. Attractive Trophy Case Presented to School For several years now, the trophies which have been presented to Newburyport High School for out- standing achievements in sports have been put in a case far too small. Now, however, through the gen- erosity of the Class of 1925, these awards may be displayed to their best advantage, for this class has presented Mount Rural with a very attractive pine trophy case, approximately fifteen feet long and five feet deep. lt stands on the right side of the alcove, almost covering the entire length of the wall. We are deeply grateful to the Class of 1925 for such a practical as well as ornamental gift. In fact, we are sure that this imposing case was an added incentive to the basketball team to win the Class B Championship award. Many Defense Activities Undertaken at N. H. S. The high school is one of the busiest places in Newburyport as far as defense work is concerned, since it is being used twenty-four hours a day for these activities. During the regular school day many projects to aid the war effort are being carried on. Although there has always been an effort by each home room to obtain a Red Cross sticker, the drive has been very noticeably more successful since the war began. Now, nearly every room has at least one stickerg 109, Z05, 307, 303 and 308 have two, 107 and 313 have three stickers, and 209 has made a donation to the War Relief Fund. "ANY BONDS TODAY?" On February 5. 1942, Mary Lenane Johanna Sweeney, and Frances Gerow were at the ticket window on the second floor for the first sale of Defense Stamps at N. H. S. Un February ZS. 1942, already 978, 10c stamps, 1,Z53, Z5c stamps, two, 50c stamps and two 2518.75 bonds had been sold. All this has amounted to 3449.55 for defense. The cast of the Senior play. f'What a Life". has also been doing its part for National Defense. On fCOIZfi7'11l8d on page 28, Col. lj PAGE TW'EN TY-SEVEN MOUNT RURAL fflllI1l'f11lll?lf from page 27, Cul. 29 February 18, they presented their play for the soldiers in Salisbury at the suggestion of Captain Tuttle, the officer in command of the Salisbury barracks. Although they worked under difficulties, it was reported to be as great a success there as it was in Newburyport. Transportation was supplied by Mr. john Donovan, Miss Catherine Coffin, Mrs. john Buciak, Miss Gladys Corbitt, Mr. George Cash- man, Miss Patty Kelleher, and Miss Margaret Newell. Another organization in which many pupils have enlisted is the U. A. Consumer's Pledge, founded by Mrs. Roosevelt. The pledge follows: I. I will buy carefully. Z. I will take good care of what 1 have. 3. I will waste nothing. 4. I will do all I can to make my home, community and country ready, sufficient, and strong. All who make the pledge are given a small pin saying, f'l've enlisted" to show their mem- bership. In response to an appeal by the United States Navy for 500,000 solid model airplanes of fifty different designs, a group of Newburyport High students has formed a club to assist in the making of these models. The club includes forty boys who work during their class hours in the shop and fifty additional boys who work after school under the supervision of Mr. Preston Titus. In answer to numerous requests, girls, too, will be allowed to help in this vital work. Because of the limited facilities of the regular school shop, another unit will be formed in room 306. Each member will receive a certificate from the United States Bureau of Aeronautics for every plane he completes. The goal of the club is to complete fifty different models that will pass the inspecting committee, which will be composed of three or more men who are recog- nized for their ability in this type of work. The planes range in wingspread from SIA" to 25" and include those of five different nations. They are used to train army and navy personnel in the estima- tion of distance, gunnery practice, and aircraft recog- nition. A model suspended 35 feet from the sights of a gun will correspond to a real plane a half mile away. All around school for the past month or so, posters have been seen to the effect that we should save paper to help our council and our country. On February ZS, 4,190 pounds of paper and 1,048 pounds of magazines had been turned in and baled. In cash, this came to tli33.5Z. Paper is still coming in, but it cannot "Help your Council" until more people vol- unteer to bale it. PAGE TWENTY-EIGHT Recently, Mrs. Harry, the guidance director for N. H. S. started a knitting club, which has already started a "friendship blanket" for the Red Cross, and, as soon as this is finished, they will do some work for the navy. The members are Carolyn Kelly, Lor- raine Taylor, Doris jones, Rose Caramagno, Eleanora Caramagno, Mary Lee Henry, Grace Trabach, Lor- raine Geoffrey, Loretta Coen, Mildred Blakeley, Barbara Beasley, Ann Sewacke, Betty Reynolds, Genevieve Crowley, Georgia Tapley, and Marjorie Blaisdell. 64Something Newi' Is Added To Faculty Lunch Room A recent addition has been made by the Art Depart- ment to the faculty lunch room, remodeled from the old supply closet by Mr. Preston Titus, and supplied with curtains by Miss Florence Adams' Home Eco- nomics' Department. TEACHERS DINE IN STYLI-I This contribution from Miss Phyllis Hodgdon's art students is in the form of murals. One has already been completed and the second is under way. Be- cause of the brick walls of the room it was impossible to draw the murals directly on the walls, so they were drawn on paper with pastels and mounted on a background of wood. The first scene is a restful land- scape consisting mainly of a mountain in the back- ground and a lake in the foreground. A fixative which will render it more permanent has been applied. The students who have worked on this project are Nancy Weare '43, Priscilla Williams '43, Tony Bar- baro '43, Paula Lallas '42, and Betty Shannon, a postgraduate. Their efforts in helping to make this room more attractive will certainly be appreciated by the faculty. MOUNT RURAL Instructor Leaves N. H. S. To Operate Large Farm In September, 1930, Mr. Edwin Wilder came to Newburyport High School to teach chemistry. During his twelve years at N. H. S. he made many friends among the students as well as the faculty. Mr. Wilder has seen many changes take place and has seen both teachers and pupils come and go. For several years he was sub-master under Mr. Ewart, our preceding principal, and, until the time of his departure, was co-ordinator of extra-curricular activities at Mount Rural. At present Mr. Wilder owns and manages a large produce farm in Sterling, Massachusetts. Later he may undertake other defense work. MR. EDWIN WILDER Before he left, Mr. Wilder was given a number of farewell parties. On Thursday, February 26, Mr. and Mrs. Wilder were guests of honor at a dinner, given by the faculty, at 4 High Road, where they were pre- sented with a lamp. The following day an assembly was conducted for him during which the student body gave Mr. Wilder a barometer and a defense stamp- book for each of his two children. His 4th, Sth, and 7th period classes also gave him a rousing send-off by giving parties for him, at which various gifts were presented to him. ln regard to his leaving Newburyport High, Mr. Wilder stated, HI regret leaving Newburyport very much." He also added, "1 have met many loyal friends and spent many happy hours at N. H. S." New Edition of G4Compass" To Be Produced bytStail The Clipper's Compass staff is preparing its third edition under the direction of Miss Nancy Sornborger. This modern version of the old "Freshman's Bible" originated with a group of freshman English classes in 1939. The first edition was mimeographed and distributed to freshmen. Because of the interest of upper classmen and the financial assistance of or- ganizations and classes it was possible to issue the second edition in printed form. This year's staff are also planning to have their issue printed. Money for this project is being donated by various classes and the Student Council. In anticipation of this assistance the Clipper's Compass staff is helping collect waste paper for the Council. A pony cart owned by jackie O'Connor and driven by james Zafris, Milton Leavitt, and Arthur Hewitt was used in collecting paper. The staff includes the following: Editor in Chief, Milton Leavittg Business Manager, james Zafris, Secretary, Olga Stekionisg Student Council Represent- ative, Lorraine Coffeyg Alternate, Barbara McGlewg Associate Editors, Arthur Hewitt, Lois Noyes, Jeanne Antonopoulos, Connie Daoust, Eileen Durkee, Shirley Murphy, Head typist, Olga Pizarg assistant typists, Bertha Reed and Doris Russell. Tennis Enthusiasts Organize New Club In February, 1942, two pupils, Mary Mantarian and Norman Checkoway, asked Mr. Nock about starting a tennis club. Mr. Nock approved and the Student Council granted the N. H. S. Tennis Club a charter on March 9. Mr. Preston Titus, a former tennis instructor, has accepted the position of ad- viser. The club is planning to' have many intermural tournaments and is hoping, in May and june, to play with teams from some of the surrounding towns. The purpose of this organization is to further interest in the game at N. H. S. It is expected that there will be about sixty members when everyone has signed up. The officers are President, Norman Checkowayg Secretary, Mary Mantariang Student Council Rep- resentative, Kenneth Witcombg Student Council Al- ternate, Ann Chapin, Girls' Captain, Mary Lee Henry' Boys' Captain, Walter Pond. l PAGE TWENTY-NINE MOUNT RURAL Boys Show Patrlotism By Ballng Scrap Paper One of the many patriotic activities at H. S. is the baling and selling of waste paper, which is much in demand because many lumbermen and factory workers have joined the armed services. The Student Council is in charge of the baling machine and the collecting of paper. A city truck has been used to bring in paper from homes and grammar schools to the high school to be baled. A number of patriotic N. H. S. boys have taken charge voluntarilyg others have been asked. A plan now in progress is to have the boys in each home room take charge, beginning with the Freshmen. Freshman homerooms 317, 315, and 308 have already had their turns. "KlilCI' 'ICM BALINGH In baling, the paper is placed in a hopper at the top of the machine and compressed by means of a lever which forces the top of the baler down. More paper is added and then compressed until a compact bale about two feet square is made. Pieces of card- board are placed at the top and bottom, and pieces of wire are fastened around the bale to hold it together. Then the machine is opened and the bale removed. lialed paper is worth sixty cents a hundred pounds while paper not baled is worth thirty-five or fifty cents a hundred. Baled paper is more convenient to handle and is more easily stored since it requires less space. PAGE TIIIRTY First Freshman Class Elections are Held On February 24, the Class of Forty-five held the final election of its first class officers, electing William Brown, president, Norman Brooks, vice president: Julie Hewitt, secretary, Robert Munroe, treasurer: and Marjorie Mackie, historian. PRESIDENT WILLIAM BROWN Jackman School gave the Class of 1945 its first president, William Brown. Bill is enrolled in the Scientific Course here at N. H. S. He has already proved himself versatile in athletics, having participat- ed in football, baseball, and basketball. However, he asserts that his two favorite sports are sailing and swimming. julie Hewitt, the class secretary, graduated from the Parochial School and is now taking the Latin Course. She likes to swim, dance, and play the piano. Robert Monroe, the man who handles the class funds, also hails from the Parochial School. He is fond of all kinds of sports, but his favorite is skating. The class historian, Marjorie Mackie, graduated from the Currier School. She likes the summer months because she can indulge in her favorite pastimes of roller-skating, dancing, and tennis. She is enrolled in the Latin Course and is a member of the tennis and glee clubs. From across the line, the Spalding School in Salisbury sent us Norman Brooks, the freshman vice-president. Norman has quite a collection of stamps, for stamp collecting has been his chief hobby for some time. He is taking the general course at N. H. S., and chemistry is his favorite subject. MOUNT RURAL Senior Class Eleets Permanent Officers The permanent president of the Senior Class, Wil- liam Tobin, is certainly a well-known and well-liked person. He is taking up scientific subjects but as yet is undecided as to his future. Although a native Bostonian, liill is no different from the boys in New- buryport. He enjoys popular band music and is an ardent follower of both baseball and football. This graduate of the Albert Currier Grammar School enjoys reading all types of books, and movies take up much of his spare time. WILLIAM TOBIN The vice-president of the class, Dorothea Condon, is also the vice-president of the Student Council. This is only the beginningg she is on the Record Board, in the Baton Corps, a member of the French and dramatic clubs, and was a member of the Senior Play cast. After graduating from the Immaculate Conception School, "Dot" entered the Latin Course at X. H. S. and next year is planning to enter Trinity College in Washington, D. C. She likes to drive, but she especially enjoys acting as pianist for various entertainments. Margaret Newell is the red-headed secretary of the class of 1942. She, too, is a graduate of the Im- maculate Conception School and is taking the Com- mercial Course. She is different from many girls in N. H. S. in view of the fact that she plans to become a mechanical draftsman. Peggy enjoys roller-skating very much and has a keen interest in photography and in driving. A product of Plymouth-Morton junior High, Fred- erick Dill has a fine record for the three years he has been at X. H. S. He is in the Latin Course and hopes to go to work after graduation. His chief outside interest is photography. "Buddy" was a member of the cast of "What a Life" and is a member of the Mount Rural Players. He is also the business man- ager of the Enaitchess. Irving Dickie is historian of the Class of 1942 for the second consecutive time. He is a graduate of the Kelly School. Of his subjects in the Scientinc Course he prefers history His greatest interests are football and basketball, and he is a member of the Student Council and had a part in the Senior play. He hopes to serve his country in the navy or in the coast guard after graduating. Mr. William Lowell Speaks On Fluorescent Lighting On December Z, 1942, a novel assembly was pre- sented to the student body of Newburyport High School. Through the efforts of Mr. Edwin Wilder, Mr. William Lowell, lighting expert employed by the Hygrade Sylvania Corporation of Salem and Ipswich, was brought here, where he gave a highly interesting and at times amusing demonstration of trick lighting and the new fluorescent lighting. The assembly was very well received by the students. Mr. William Lowell, who attended N. H. S. and graduated from M. l. T. in 1926, is very enthusiastic about fluorescent light. He stated that fluorescent light costs less than our present day lighting, gives off about two and one-half times as much light and, in general, is much better than the illumination which we now use. This new light is now used to aid national de- fense in a variety of ways. For example, it is used to illuminate practically all defense factories, a differ- ent type of it is now found in the cockpits of planes, and recently experiments have been made with it on battleships. When asked if he thought there was any difference between present day N. H. S. and the old high school which he attended, Mr. Lowell replied that the new high school is so much better than the old one that there is Uno comparison" and that even our lighting system is very much improved.

MOUNT RURAL Seven Council' Committees Carry On Many Projects The Student Council, still a comparatively new or- ganization at N. H. S., has endeavored during the past year to prove its usefulness to the student body. Its accomplishments retiect not only the efforts of its members, but also the cooperation of the student body which has enabled it to fulfill its purpose, namely, to become an organization through which all students may voice their opinions, either personally or through their representatives, for the promotion of good will and good government at N. H. S. The Student Council is divided into seven groups. The committees and their duties are as follows: Assembly Committee--Chairman, Beatrice Parks. To have devotional exercises once a month, in the auditorium, to cooperate with other committees in programs for the good of the school and the students as a whole.

The Council with its various committees, hopes that it has successfully carried out its duties and will welcome any suggestion for the good of the student body and the school. N. H. S. Has New Instructor N. H. S. was exceedingly fortunate when it secured Miss Grace Watters, who recently became Mrs. Fred- erick A. Gates, as a teacher in the Home Economics Department. Mrs. Gates came to Newburyport from MRS. F. A. GATES the high school in Townsend, Massachusetts. She is a native of Fall River, Massachusetts. Mrs. Gates attended Framingham Teachers College and did practice teaching in New Bedford and Bourne. She has always been interested in the subject she teaches. Mrs. Gates enjoys playing basketball and refereeing basketball games. As a hobby she collects figurines anrl also does a considerable amount of reading. French Club Prospers Many activities have been undertaken by the French Club this year to promote a greater interest in the study of French. Some of the members in the club have purchased song books, and now they are able to sing songs in French during their meetings. A quantity of playbooks has been purchased by the club, and short skits are enacted by the members at various meetings. French flags have also been pur- fCo1ztinued on page 34, Col.

Under the direction of Mr. Fred W. Parsons, Robert jones, as Henry Aldrich, did a remarkable job, and his leading lady, Sybil Bothwell, in the role of Barbara Pearson, ably assisted him. 'fWhat a Life" is the story of two days in the hectic life of any high school boy who gets into every kind of trouble imaginable. The office of the principal is the center of all the action, and the entrances and exits of various teachers and pupils provide much comedy. The boys of the stage crew produced an effective setting which re- ceived much favorable comment from the audience. This group worked under the supervision of Miss Catherine Coffin. Also outstanding was the music which was pre- sented between acts. Under the direction of Miss lzobel Burgstaller, Robert Sargent, Margaret Hag- opian, Edith Pray, Virginia Rogers, Lois Noyes, Thelma Perfect, and Phyllis Irving appeared as the iirst school-trained music group to help in a Senior play.

Southworth Directs Series of Health Tests On February 4 and ll the students of Newburyport High School took a series of health tests. These tests were given for a study to be made by a joint committee representing the Massachusetts Depart- ment of Public Health and the State Department of Education. The purpose of these health tests is to find the health needs of high school students. There are twenty-seven schools participating with about 12,000 students taking these tests. Since the four tests were to be corrected by a special electrical de- vice, special soft-lead pencils were used by the students. The tests were given to obtain the following information: tlj judgment of health practices, KZ! knowledge of health. 135 interest in health courses, and Q43 health of individual students. Mr. W. H. Southworth of the Massachusetts De- partment of Public Health supervised the health tests in our high school and was much pleased by the good spirit in which Newburyport High School took them. "Co-operation has been splendid," he said. Fourteen Seniors Enter N. I-I. S. Defense School The school machine shop has opened a twelve weeks course for Seniors. This was done because of a great shortage of skilled machinists needed for vital war work.

She also said that girls should know about fads and what they can afford. Wear stockings for work or business. Slacks are for sportwear and not for school or city. One should wear make-up that is becoming, but should not wear her hair in a certain style because someone else does. To avoid mascara and eyeshadow in the daytime and to let one's eyebrows be natural were more hints Miss Ganter gave us. She stressed that cleanliness is the basis of good grooming.

S. have been given special permission by the B. I. F. Depart- ment to carry on secret investigation of suspected sabotage of Henry Deorockiis paper route. These pupils have adopted aliases which, of course, are military secrets. However, the Senior Siren, living up to its usual standard, has procured the information and now offers it to its readers. Louise has become Haircut instead of Champouxg Vivienne, Long instead of Short, Beatrice, Spider instead of Webb, Marjorie, Tigers instead of Lyons, Fred, Sweet instead of Dill: Kenneth, Run instead of Chase, Edward, Straight in- stead of Curley, Helen, Wrong instead of Wrightg Aria, Yell instead of Call, and Edith, Canner instead of Packer. SPY RING EXPOSED Since lack of evidence prevented the arrest of five high school seniors as spies, they are now being held on charge of gumchewing in Ellen Sweeney's barn. Through the deduction of Detective George Ferguson Cashman, and his body guards, "Sweets" Chatigny and "Pee-Wee" McGlew, the suspects were rounded up. In an ensuing gun battle, Eldon Bradstreet, a bystander, was killed by a bullet through the small toe of his left foot. The spies were identified by their peculiarities of eicpression, which run as follows: David Murphy-"How do you do?" Mary Mantarian-"My mind just won't function." Georgia Kafalas-'tHi ya, Sugarfootln Nick Sarantakos-"Rise, please." Earl Morrill-"Did you say ten cents?" GOSSIP COLUMN . . . by DIDJA KNOW Greetings all youse guys and gals! Gather round, chillun.

S. announced yesterday that the giant anti-aircraft gun that has been under construction for the past ten minutes was finally NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD ready for a test. This morning all attempts to trans- port the huge mechanism into the stadium for trial resulted in failure. Workers of the defense plant were faced with a serious problem when the twenty-five foot machine would not conveniently slide through the two foot door. John f'Dynamite,' Desmondwas called to blast the side of the building. In the explosion, Eleanor Peche collided with Nancy Jackman and broke a finger-nail. One of the several flying doors broke the crystal of the watch "He" gave Irene Boutin for Christmas. Wanda Stashio administered first aid to Ellen Dow and Janet Aubin, who, because of their refusal to separate, were injured by the same speck of dust. The gun was finally wheeled into the stadium where it proved very effective in shooting down all model airplanes within a radius of just about. Angelo Dagres, who drew up the blueprints, was interviewed by Navy agents, Charles Bashaw and John Donahue. It is believed that the gun may be used for Coastal Defense. I William Casey, who inserted all the screws, and Ronaldo Brisson, who polished the finished mechanism, were complimented on their fine work. Arthur Man- son and John Kubik, who were responsible for its completion four minutes ahead of schedule, were given long term contracts. These defense workers had interesting stories to tell to Olga Pizar, who took lengthy notes in shorthand. The now famous gun is being named after Virginia Young. The first shot during today's tests was fired by Gordon "Sergeant" York. BOOK STORE OPENS The corner of High and Low Streets was the scene yesterday of the official opening of "Bookworms' Haven". The store was decorated by Robert Colburn. The owner and operator of "Bookworms' Haven", Costa Talas, greeted nearly a thousand interested and enthusiastic bookworms. Also on the deception line were his assistants, Lorraine Duggan and Donald Bryant. The store contains about 10,000 new books, all published by Hook or by Crook. Among the books that aroused the most interest were these: "Captains Courageous" Joe Fosillo and Victor Woron "My Country and My Peoplen ........... A gnes Benedict "Behind the Footlights' ........................ Loretta Coen "How to Win Friends and Influence People" J Victoria Garfi f'Confessions of a Scientist ................ Thomas Ferrick "So You Want to Get into the Theatre" Walter Romancewicz " Better Tennis" ....... .......... E verett Holbrook "So Big" .............. ............ E ftimeo Talas "Outdoor Life" .................................... Harley Plante PERSONAL MENTION "Bud" Coombs has just returned fro-m a motor trip to Amesbury, where he has been seen in the company of a young lady named "Sandy", or so reliable sources claim. In a. recent beauty contest, Arthur "Dimples" Doyle was awarded first prize for having the biggest feet. Leona Chetsas was rushed to the Anna Jaques Hos- pital in an ambulance yesterday as a result of a severe needle prick. Howard Fernald received Commendation from Navy officials for donating his fleet of newly repaired and freshly painted rowboats. Dorothy Knox, Doris Russell, and Ruth Woods were guests on the 'fWe, the Pupils" program last evening. Each guest received a copy of Eva Matthews' "Sketches on Scenes in 103". Walter Woron, also of this city, was master of ceremonies. Ethel Roaf and Grace Trebach left today for positions as hostesses at Camp Whatsit. Leland Giard of the U. S. Navy was home today on thirty days leave because of illness. The doctor's prescription was to gaze for at least one hour each day on a certain Jewel. Gail Shorey was taken to a First Aid Station be- cause she scratched her linger when she fell down on roller skates. The local police have appointed a committee of three, Eleanor Reardon, Margaret Nason, and Virginia Blake, to investigate the mysteriuos disappearance of Yehudi. sso,ooo DEBUT AT J. J. NEWBERRYS BAR Miss Jean Plouff made her entrance into the social world last evening amidst a whirlwind of music and dancing at that exclusive night spot, J. J. Newberry's Bar. Miss Plouff wore blue dungarees and a red plaid shirt. She was pursued all evening by Milton Kray, a dashing young school teacher. It would probably have resulted in an engagement if Bobby Jones hadn't broken it up with his beanshooter. Everett Page, who was the toastmaster, burned his fingers several times during the course of the evening. The orchestra, which consisted of Dorothea Condon at the piano, William Fletcher with his harmonica, and the violinists, Ann Buciak and Mildred Wood- man, played "Old Zip Cooni' and "Deep In the Heart of Texas." PAGE FORTY-THREE NEWBURYPORT HIGH RECORD Paula Steward and Gloria Steele were late in ar- riving because several times Paula was stopped and given a ticket for speeding. William Bothwell and Stanley Reda, who were bouncers, were rushed to the Anna Jaques Hospital after a series of bounces on the concrete sidewalk. Several times the police were called to stop a riot. In spite of the murder of Philip Feigenbaum by an un- identified young lady in a yellow evening dress, and a hand to hand fight between Catherine Sotiropoulos and Leo Murray, the party was a social success.
