V. 9 THE GOBBLER 1942 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL North Andover Massachusetts " cMz doncjiizis, Wfio Goncjiizzi. ff We, the Class of 1942, dedicate our GOBBLER to Mrs. James Heron, who left our faculty this year after nineteen years of faithful teaching.

You may be one of to¬ morrow’s leaders. You must prepare yourself now for that leadership. Without leaders the nation and our way of life will die. The decision you make now, as you graduate, will affect the entire course of your life. Understand your responsibilities to your country at war, but remember too, that the nation will not always be at war. Considering these facts, decide how you can best meet your responsibili¬ ties now and in the more distant future. Impulsive action you must avoid. You must determine a course of action which will not only serve your immediate needs, but which will prepare you for a lifetime of work and service. Leadership is always in demand. We cry out for it in times of crisis, but it must also be present in times of peace. It is not easily attained. It is usually a slow and arduous climb which demands ability to inspire confidence and obtain cooperation. These gifts are slowly gained. Another attribute of leadership is knowledge. Some leaders have been rough and unpolished, but none have been ignorant. The leader must know, else he is not fit to lead. Accordingly, my advice to you is that you continue to increase your knowledge now, in order that you may be able later to inspire that confidence in others which will mark you as a leader in the service of your country or in the affairs of your own small community, wherever it may be.

ROSEMARY A. ELDREDGE Rosie, we’re sure you’ll go a long way in life with your happy- go-lucky manner. Remember the time we got triple homework in shorthand because of your ready humor? We wouldn’t have had as good a time in high school without you. ANNA H. EVANGELOS Hobby Club 2 Cheer Leader 4 Anna is one of the best dressed girls in our school, besides having a charming personality. These qua¬ lities will surely help her to attain success in her secretarial career. EUGENE Y. FIONTE Now here is a man who possesses the ability to get along with any¬ one.

Her ar¬ tistic ability will doubtless lead her to success as a commercial artist. JACQUELINE I. HUTTON A. A. Play 3, 4 Debating Club 3 Develop your real talent, Jackie. You can give as much pleasure in the future as you have given us. See you on Broadway! SOPHIE D. IWORSLEY Sophie loves to polka. That’s a sure sign of a good-na;ured person. HARVEY K.

LILLIAN KATTAR Lil, with the gorgeous black hair, always sees the funny side of a situation. Where there is fun, there you will find Lil. NEIL H. KEATING Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4 Neil is definitely the executive type. He can discuss anything from all angles and see everyone’s point of view. WILLIAM B. KENT Many a girl’s heart has longed for Bill’s affections, but still he re¬ serves them for a certain under¬ graduate. MARION KIMBALL Marion may be quiet in school, but she’s ready for any kind of mis¬ chief outside. She’s small in stature, but has a heart as big as they come. Remember the arguments in math class?

A LIBERAL EDUCATION IN A PRACTICAL WORLD In a world of mechanisms and practical living, the tendency has been, in recent years, to change from the outmoded liberal education to the streamlined practical education, which would fit more easily into these modern times. First let us consider the meaning of these two terms. The liberal education is the cultural one, which is the basis of all education: i. e. the study of Latin, Greek, and other languages, literature, history, art and music. The practical education, which is no newcomer, is the train¬ ing of young people to become skilled workers in one of the many trades. They may become typists, machinists, electricians, welders, fac¬ tory workers, etc. Especially since the outbreak of the first World War, the gradual inhibition of the liberal education has been more painfully noticeable. In all the European countries, practical education has been advocated and put into practice, while the now obscure liberal education has been forced to take a back seat. Even in America it is becoming evident that the liberal education no longer occupies the high position which it held many years ago. The whole world is becoming mechanical-minded. All the nations are trying to outdo one another in a frenzy of machine production and in the development of their natural resources. Culture has been laid on the shelf, noticed little or not at all. Chivalry is dead. Women are toiling alongside the men in defense factories, while many are occupied in Civilian Defense. Some modern Amazons in Russia even share the actual combat duties with the male warriors. You may ask the question: What good can a liberal education be in securing and maintaining a position? Certainly a knowledge of Greek or Latin does not help one in operating an induction motor or the like. However a liberal education helps us to culture and refine¬ ment and broadens our minds so that we may better carry on our rela¬ tions with our fellow employees and our friends. A liberal education also sharpens o-ur wits, and develops quick thinking, keen minds, and good judgment in us. The United States government shows its acknowledge¬ ment of the good points of a liberal education by stating its preference for college men to all others for positions in the Air Corps, where the before-mentioned traits are a necessity. Consider also the reasons for acquiring any kind of education. The purpose of an education is to enable a person to take his position in life and to maintain friendly relations with society. A person who has had only a practical education may be able to attain excellent employ¬ ment in his trade but the chances are that his personality will be most drab, he will lack wit, and social life will be a complete failure. On the other hand, the person who has had a good liberal education will prob¬ ably advance much farther in life, not necessarily to a better job, but through his culture at least to maintain a more favorable position in society. Looking on the other side of the question, a practical education also has its advantages. It is certainly both profitable and sensible to 23 THE GOBBLER 1942 learn a useful trade in these war times. However, no matter what the trade may be, it should be studied along with enough liberal education to make a well-rounded course for the student. Back in the oiden days when the practical education was already popular, the liberal education was not neglected. According to the Guild System a boy served a seven- year apprenticeship at a trade, but during this time his master was obliged to supply him with a reasonably good liberal education. Education is not the mere possession of knowledge, but the ability to reflect upon it and grow 1 in wisdom. Another important thing to re¬ member is that education does not end when one leaves school, but con¬ tinues all through life. There isn’t one day when one doesn’t learn or discover something- new—as minute as it may be — a fact, a trait of human nature, or a new idea or reflection on some well-known subject. Many students leave high school with the idea that their education is com¬ plete and that their days of studying are over.This is decidedly the wrong- attitude to assume. Even if one is not so fortunate as to be able to further his education at a higher institution of learning, he should continue to broaden his intellect and to keep informed of current events by reading good books, magazines, and newspapers, by attending profitable lectures or concerts, by listening to worthwhile radio programs, or even by patron¬ izing carefully chosen motion pictures. There are no better examples of success in life through a liberal education and especially through the reading of good literature than Abraham Lincoln and Booker T. Washington. A large part of Lincoln’s sessed a keen wit and a marvelous understanding of human nature, both success was due to his extensive consumption of books. Lincoln pos- of which he no doubt acquired in part from his copious reading. He also was master of an excellent rhetoric, as can be easily seen in his immor¬ tal “Gettysburg Address”. Booker T. Washington was a poor Negro boy who managed to acquire a good liberal education through much diligent work. With this behind him, he went on to become a great Negro educator and to write several fine books. He is still regarded as one of the greatest Negro figures of all time and has been an immeas- ureable benefactor to his race. An excellent example of the importance of culture to a nation can be seen in the case of Sparta and Athens. Sparta, at the southern tip of Greece, was, like present day Germany, the height of military per¬ fection. She possessed the most marvelous military machine of her day and had progressed far in physical achievement. Farther to the north lay Athens, the center of all European culture, where lived the great writers and philosophers of that time. The belligerent Spartans only scoffed at their peace-loving, long-haired brothers of Athens. However, when the Persian hordes started to roll against Greece, it was not the warlike Spartans, but the Athenians with their strong cultural spirit, who engag¬ ed the enemy, defeated them, and saved their country. In closing, let me set forth the thought that a liberal education or culture is the basis of all civilization. When culture ceases tO ' exist, the world will slump back into a wretched state, unparalleled since the Dark Ages. Thus in order to survive as a nation and a people in this material¬ istic and warring world of today, we must not only be supreme in our practical achievement but we must also continue to nourish the spark of liberal culture. Let us see that it is not extinguished so that we mav live to again see the dawn of another era of culture, like that created by man¬ kind in the golden eras of the past. ROBERT H. WENZEL 24 1942 THE GOBBLER G!a THE ROAD BEFORE US War is a great stultifier and now that America is at war, it will be hard to avoid the dishonesty, the prejudices, the lies, and the blind pas¬ sions that hide so naturally under the cloak of patriotism. The tendency will be toward a lowering of the moral and intellectual level in a move¬ ment downward that will be unanimous, a by-product of national unity. Restrictions are already in force and many more will follow. The ordinary citizen will have to g ' ive up many things, which, although not essential, have become symbolic of America’s better way of life ; however this will not cause real suffering. Hanson W. Baldwin wrote, “We can lose the war ; but we won’t if the nation works and sweats and bleeds for victory— and the elements making for a survival in a predatory world are concen¬ trated singlemindedness upon one aim, victory, a complete national will¬ ingness to subordinate all else to this end, and a vigor and energ-y of purpose that no pain or toil or trouble, no reserve or defeat can dampen.” American opinion may have to accept most difficult and profound changes if this war is not to end in some sort of unpredictable chaos. These changes affect certain fundamental problems of America as a na¬ tion and its relation to the rest of the world. For instance, should America renounce forever the policy of isolation? If this is answered in the affirm¬ ative, should America accept boldly the responsibility of asserting its leadership in the reconstruction of the world which will follow the war if it is won by the United Nations? The isolationist’s Utopia has broken down time and time again. America has taken part in all the major wars since the end of the eighteenth century. But after each war, there has been a return to the dream of aloofness and escapism. While the isola¬ tionists conclude that it is America’s duty to insulate itself, the reformers feel that it is America’s mission to set an example for the whole world and have the whole world benefit by it. It is President Roosevelt’s conviction that winning this war would be hardly worth while, if, after it is won, America withdrew from the peace, as it did in 1919. The fact that there is such wide interest particularly in America in the future peace and in the world of tomorrow springs from a variety of motives. The first one is the real and deep abhorrence for war which exists in this democracy. The thought of peace is an incentive to carry on the war. The second is the indestructible American faith in human pro¬ gress, according to which it is impossible to accept a war—even if it is one in which one’s very existence is at stake—without the ulterior inten¬ tion of making war serve to create a better world. The rehabilitation of Europe can hardly be achieved without the help of America. This help can manifest itself in two essential ways : as an inspiration and as a mod¬ erating factor. It can be expected that America will see the war through by a process of internal adaptation which will not involve a radical break with the past. This adaptation to war will have drastic results and each citizen will feel it, but there are no signs as yet that this will mean structual changes in the political system or a different orientation of American point of view on fundamental principles. For this reason America will serve as a sort of bridge between the past and the future which is now in the making. It will assure the continuity of civilization, a role which no 25 THE GOBBLER 1942 other nation is in a position to play now. The purpose of this war cannot be anything else but to make democ¬ racy work, for the simple reason that in the world democracy is contained the best of two thousand years of human effort toward a better world. The road we must follow is not new. It is the road of reason. This civilization of ours is infinitely rich and generous. It contains all the inspiration w ' e need for a thousand years to come. Our aims for the future world seem very distant and sometimes dim, but we know that there is no hope of reaching them except through victory. Although we see a high rugged road looming ahead of us, we must climb if we want our great democracy to function now and forever, and if we want future genera¬ tions to enjoy peace and the God-given rights of man. CONSTANCE M. FITZGERALD On.ati.on HE CONQUERS WHO CONQUERS HIMSELF Man should be proud of having the task, the privilege, the heritage, not of outdoing the giants in their fields -- men like Rembrandt, Dickens, Pasteur, and Edison — but rather of satisfying his own scrupulous con¬ science that he has done his best in conquering- himself. The goal towards which one strives should be the fulfillment of one’s self-s ' atisiaction. This may seem easy to do. Yet just how easily are we going to be detoured by tfje obstacles that loom before us? Let " Beetho¬ ven, the deaf musician, and Lincoln, the frontiersman, serve as examples of men who overcame their difficulties despite their obstacles. Then let someone speak of his own handicaps that are too great to surmount. Regardless of physical or financial handicaps, whether you end up rich or poor, it will not matter so long as you make the most of what you have, and always strive in the direction of self-satisfaction, but not with¬ out consideration of others. Be willing to give credit where credit is due. There is a story about a young interne, James, who was elated -- because of his brief know¬ ledge concerning the matter — that he did so well in saving the life of a premature baby. Later on he learned the success was due to the head nurse’s fifteen years of experience with premature babies. I propose that each one strive first to develop his standards of judg¬ ment. For instance, everyone should read widely, and think over and discuss what he has read. He should cultivate friendships among the old¬ er, more experienced people. In this way he may learn to profit from their mature judgment. Instead of falling into the common errors of impulsive youth, he will temper his own ardent spirit and learn from the silvery hairs of experience. Yet, he must not become completely dependent on others. He must make his own decisions. He can not lean everlastingly on the shoulders of others. When his own native common sense, his judgment, and his conscience tell him that he must stand alone for the right, he must have the independence and stamina to stand on his own two feet. Despite all the help older heads may give him, he must dare to face responsibility and risk making his own mistakes. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “The man who never made a mistake is the man who never dared.” 26 1942 THE GOBBLER Try to see ourselves as others see us. Projection often helps us to see our faults more readily and makes us better able to remedy them. This will improve our efficiency by getting- rid of our faults. It may seem a little hard at first to do this, for bad habits are not easily broken, espe¬ cially if they have already made a deep impression. Never say, “I cannot break that habit; I tried before and I cannot.” It takes time and will-power and also a little backbone. Have perserver- ance, for perserverance generates success. Lastly, satisfy yourself that you have done your best in making your¬ self a better man to talk with, to live with, and to work with. Only then can one honestly say, “He conquers, who conquers himself.” JULIUS CEPLIKAS TAILOR-MADE TEXTILES For untold thousands of years man used vegetable and animal fibers to satisfy his needs for fabrics. Cotton, wool, silk, and flax, each with its peculiar characteristics which limit its utility, are the most important of these. To be sure, he improved them--lengthening, strength¬ ening the fibers, lowering the cost of the finished product. And that they still hold the leading role in our textile world is indisputable. But in the short space of fifty years synthetic fibers have invaded the field to such an extent that their domination of it in the not-too-distant future is not improbable. Silk, product of a lowly worm, has always been considered the Queen of the fabrics, but in Count Hilaire de Chardonnet the silkworm foun d a rival. The Count was well equipped with knowledge of the worm, having- studied under Pasteur and assisted him in his study of the silkworm disease which threatened the great industry of Lyon with ruin. In 1884 he began manufacturing his artificial silk, spun of nitrocellulose. Highly inflammable, it had to be put through a denitrating process developed by Sir Joseph Swan. Chardonnet’s process, now obsolete, was important principally in that it was the first to produce a multiple-filament yarn by squirting a cellulose solution through tiny holes. In 1892 Charles F. Cross and Ernest J. Bevan, an English research team, discovered viscose rayon, made by a tricky process in which tem¬ perature, time, and humidity must be strictly controlled in order that there may be no variation in the finished fiber--a process which produces two-thirds of our rayon. The Bemberg cuprammonium process, as well as the viscose and nitrocellulose, merely regenerate cellulose. Cellulose acetate, put on the market in 1910 by the Dreyfus brothers, is a distinctly different fiber. The search for a synthetic silk had brought about the development of these fibers. Since they were in no wise synthetic silks, and since to the public the term had unpleasant connotations, the filament-makers agreed in 1924 upon the generic name rayon. Camille Dreyfus, following their lead and scorning the name rayon for his acetate fiber, coined the name Celanese. To this day the manufacturer urges the public to dis¬ tinguish between them by including in his advertising matter a test for determining the difference between Celanese and rayon. 27 THE GOBBLER 1942 With the rayons and, more recently, with other synthetics, such as Nylon, the textile industry has created all sorts of made-to-order fabrics —sharkskins, crushproof velvets and crepes. High twists, every degree of permanent luster or dullness, staple fibers, varying spinning treat¬ ments opened vistas of possible new effects in fabric. The different dye affinities of the rayons, as of wool and cotton, permit the economy of cross-dyeing, resulting in many original color effects. The trick, bor¬ rowed from the silkworm, of stretching filaments to increase the ten¬ sile strength makes possible a rayon yarn stronger than steel wire — Cordura, a viscose yarn used as the cord fabric in automobile tires. In 1939 Du Pont introduced an entirely new fiber, nylon, contain¬ ing no cellulose, and developed by Wallace Carothers. It is really new in that it is a totally different combination of the elements and since the term nylon is a generic one, we may expect other nylons. Nylon was offered to ' the public, not as a cheaper substitute, but as a new, man-made, higher quality, and more expensive fiber and as such, the demand for it was tremendous, showing that the unpleasant character¬ istics associated with a chemical substitute in the public mind had dis¬ appeared. Following the development of nylon have comp other fibers made from non-cellulose raw materials. The National Dairy Company has produced Aralac from the casein of milk to be blended with other tex¬ tile fibers. The Ford Motor Company was making upholstery fiber for use in its automobiles from soybeans. The development of a noninflam¬ mable fabric made from dried seaweed has been reported to the Ameri¬ can Chemical Society. In addition to new fibers, textile research has given us flameproofing, waterproofing, mildewproofing, and shrink¬ proofing to prolong the life and improve the appearance of our clothes. The war has had its effect on synthetic fibers as on every other field. Cut off from world markets, Germany and Italy must of neces¬ sity have developed synthetic fibers, libe the Italian casein fiber, Lani- tol. The defense program created a greater demand for all types of materials. The war with Japan, erasing silk from the textile picture, forced greater production of nylon. In the creation of new fibers the properties of wool, cotton, silk, and flax have been taken as models. Those natural fibers have been the standard by which the quality and performance of the man-made have been judged. But it is becoming increasingly evident that they have qualities which are distinctive, unlike any in nature. It may well be that textile fibers will one day be made with characteristics to fit the requirements of a particular need and purpose and that we are en¬ tering an era of textiles “made-to-order”. Tonight we, the Class of 1942, terminate our four brief years at Tohnson and pass on, each to his own task in a broader, more exacting world, leaving the timeworn traditions and the slight innovations we may have made to you who follow. We carry with us gratitude for the leadership, guidance, and trust given us, along- with unstinting work for our welfare, by Mr. Hayes. We take away, also, an appreciation which will grow ever deeper with the years of the efforts of our faculty to put into our hands the tools for making a richer, fuller life. They have been happy, fun-filled years which will live in our mem¬ ories peopled by the friends whom we have made here. And so, with regret for what is past and hope and best wishes for that which is to come, I bid you, on behalf of my classmates, a simple goodbye. PHYLLIS D. TLRRET 28 1942 THE GOBBLER CHa i. JJi.4to ity The duty of Class Historian, I find, is a surprisingly pleasant one. To record the incidents of our school life that have brought us to the very threshold of graduation is an unspeakable joy. Even the wearisome routine, the hardships, the disappointments which we experienced along the way, now have a bright radiance as we recognize their influence in our preparation for this day and for a future bright with possibilities. The history of a high school class is unparalleled. A person hardly thinks of it as a history. We worked, played occasionally, and have our¬ selves to show for it. Our history is not of great achievement, but of preparation and development. For the last four years we have been progressing, slowly, but pro¬ gressing. We entered Johnson fresh from grammar school, proud and scared. We were a group of astonished students. Some of us were doubt¬ ful as to what to do and say, but everyone was proud that he was a freshman at Johnson. As we became accustomed to the new environment and the thrill of the new experience, we settled down to work. After learning the rules and regulations and the procedure of the various classes, we plunged into the task of advancing both in our scho¬ lastic and extra-curricular efforts. Before we knew it, we were the guests of the seniors at the Senior-Freshman dance. After a short period the class officials were elected and we conducted the Freshman-Senior dance, with the seniors as our guests. We worked diligently at our subjects and accomplished much and in a short time, it seemed, the year came to an end. The next year we took up the task where we left off before. Again much was learned. We advanced in both scholastic and extra-curricular standing, and we worked industriously to merit the advancement that would come to us in its proper time. In this year we enjoyed ourselves at two class affairs, the Junior-Sophomore dance, and Sophomore-Junior dance. The junior year brought increased responsibility, a growing recog¬ nition in student activities, more difficult assignments. We put forth our best efforts, for just before us stood the g ' oal of our high school ambition, the senior year. This year a social atmosphere prevailed in the class on three occasions, the Junior-Sophomore dance, the Sophomore-Junior dance, and the Senior-Junior prom. In methodical order another year ran its course. Then as we reached up to begin the senior year, it seemed to step down to greet us. We performed our assignments to the best of our abil¬ ity, enjoyed ourselves at the Senior-Freshman, Freshman-Senior dances, and the Senior-Junior prom. We have learned much in the administration and execution of our affairs. Wise direction by the patient faculty has broadened our outlook, deepened our sensibilities, and heightened our ambitions. We shall not stop here. These pleasant years have been spent in preparation for the fulfillment of our specific obligations to society. And so, taught in the basic principles of good clean living, we are prepared proudly and confidently to carry on. JULIUS R. PIEROG 29 THE GOBBLER 1942 C£oa OA lM We, the class of 1942, sincerely believing ourselves to be one of the most brilliant and outstanding classes ever to emerge from these portals of learning, do hereby bestow upon the unworthy juniors those things which have marked our class as one unique. To dear old Johnson we leave our thanks for fond memories. To the teachers we leave our regrets that our distracted minds often wandered to things other than those which should have been occupying us. To the juniors we leave our place as leaders, and our regrets that they will never come up to our standards as such. Paul DeTeresi leaves his loyal love of the great outdoors to William Deighan.

Vivian Campbell receives Phyllis Hurd’s paint brushes and poster mat¬ erial, along with instructions on how to carry on the good work. Julius Pierog leaves his deep bass voice to Robert Wentworth. Bernie Lefebvre inherits Barbara Bannan’s magnetic effect on boys, and her deceivingly angelic appearance. Veronica Mandry leaves to Leah McArthur her very entertaining style of giving oral book reports. Trudy McKay gladly rids herself of the introvert personality that she received last year, by giving it to Charlotte Anderson. Albert Robertson leaves his seat in Room 8, removing the sign which read, “With Perpetual Care.” Bob Earl leaves Sister Barbara under the direct supervision of Eddy Sullivan, with the warning, “Treat her gently, Eddy.

To Louise and Luella Currier, Jane and Eileen Proulx leave their sis¬ terly relationship and their ability to get along without quarrelling. Charlie McCubbin passes a few helpful hints to Jackie Farrell, on how to get along with Miss McAloon. Likewise, Eddie McCallion wills the “Oh yeah’s” and “Huh’s” which so exasperated her to Puckout Walsh, Neil Keating leaves his fatal charm for women and his smooth man¬ ner to Dewey Dyer. Evelyn Lee wills her Yankee twang (or is it a Harvard accent?) to Barbara Fenton. Warren Dill’s inheritance is a list of things to do during a blackout, compiled by Sammy Armstrong. Elizabeth Wentworth bestows her lovely soprano voice on Mary Wilkinson. Donald Hilton leaves one of his six odd feet (and I don’t mean his pedal extremities) to Joe Donnelly. William Morse and Bart Forgetta combine their innocence and leave it to George Carroll, who won’t dare to refuse it. Wishing to keep them in the family, Donald Milne passes along to his brother Alex, all the books, pencils, etc. that he accumulated during his four years at Johnson. To Dorothy Kent, Doris McDonoug ' h leaves her quietness and demure glances. Walter Frost leaves his Boxford bus pass to John Gordon, thus en¬ abling Jack to visit the buxom Boxford lasses.

Peggy Green- ler gets Phyllis’ place on the honor roll. Carroll Saunders leaves his amazing resemblance to Clark Gable to Robert Wentworth. Einstein’s rival, Harry Narushof, leaves his mathematical ability to Richard Hopping.

Helen Roche and Carolyn Gile combine their quietness and leave it to Edna Kelleher, saying, “It’s for a good cause!” Virginia Wood is left gasping with Lillian Kattar’s love of brilliant colors. Jackie Hutton (Johnson’s Hepburn) leaves her passion for blue to Viola Bell. Winnie Sherlock leaves her red knee lengths to Rachel Ritchie. Eva Walsh inherits Dot Stone’s come hither glance. Charlie MacKinnon, being Scotch, leaves regrets that he wills nothing. Marion Kimball leaves Jean Kennedy to carry on her “Boost the Navy” campaign. Anna Evangelos bestows her flying typewriter fingers on Virginia Aponovich. Ben Pearl bequeaths his expressive style of reading to Kenneth Car- veil and the smile he beamed on all the senior girls to George Barker with the advice to use it often to prevent rusting. Walter Mazurenko leaves his frankness (or is it bluntness) to any¬ one who aspires to attain self-confidence. Last, but by no means least, Harvey Jackson leaves one-half of his entire molecule of energy to Billy Glidden, who had better not refuse the inheritance! Thus, we the Class of 1942, do hereby bestow upon our successors the foregoing things, and do affix our signatures to this worthy and legal document, in the year nineteen hundred and forty-two. BARBARA M. COLEBROOKE 33 THE GOBBLER 1942 Clakti (Pnophtcu All New York and then some is at Times Square. It is 1962 and the National Peace Conference is being held in New York. People from all phases of life are here; newspaper workers, secretaries, doc¬ tors, etc., as we shall see. They will go home with new ideas for local, state, national, and and even international peace. Ah, the parade is beginning. National President Punky Stewart, in his limosine is ahead, escorted by Secretary of State Julius Pierog and Secretary of the Interior Charles McCubbin. The next car is filled with ex¬ ecutives from the army, navy, and air force. General Robert Earl, Ad¬ miral Daniel McCarthy, and Air Marshal Harry Narushof are all there. Ouch, someone bumped into me! It is Barbara Bannan. She tells me she’s designing costume jewelry for Lord Taylor and that Mary Norris is also there in the College Shop. This gets interesting, so we talk more. Una Richard and Phyllis Hurd are doing commercial art in the advertising department of the New York Times, of which Norman Andrew is the editor. Lillian Amshey is modeling at Saks. A group of Boy Scout leaders goes by. Donald Milne is the na¬ tional leader. There are several small platforms erected at one end of the square. One is for the National Medical Society. Jean Swanston, as superinten¬ dent of nurses at the Massachusetts General Hospital, is there. Among her assistants are Dorothy McKinnon, Veronica Mandry, Winifred Sher¬ lock, Ruth Diamont, and Rita Walker, who are all staff nurses there. Elizabeth Renault is in the psychiatry department at John Hopkins. Just now a newsboy sells me a New York paper through which I glance casually. (The parade is slowing up a bit now.) The enter¬ tainment page boasts a photograph of Jacqueline Hutton, who has stepped into Katherine Cornell’s shoes, and a picture of Elizabeth Wentworth who likewise occupies Lily Pons’ former dressing room at the Met. Another page shows Paul Routhier of the Red Sox with manager George Rennie. John Saunders is also playing with them. The parade has stopped and the celebrities have gone. When I turn around to go myself, I bump squarely into Barbara Colebrooke, who is up from Washington for the conference. She is congressional librarian there. Anna Evangelos is there with her as her secretary. The three of us go to lunch at the 10 - 50 Club where William Hib- bits and Eugene Boeglin have built up a neat little business. They have Samuel Armstrong, Walter Frost, and Bart Forgetta to take care of the food end of things, Donald Hilton the financial end, and Samuel Bardsley the entertainment end. Bardsley tells us that Frank Guerrera has taken over the Arthur Murray Dance Studio. Sophie Iworsley teaches la conga there and William Kent the waltz, fox trot, rhumba, or any other. After lunch I take a trip to a secretarial school on 42nd Street. It is run by Ruth Craig and Thelma Champion. They tell me about the girls’ business club that they have formed. Edith Callard, who is sec¬ retary to Neil Keating, belongs. Neil, Benjamin Pearl, and George Gildea have an engineering firm in Brooklyn. Jean McNab, Betty Smith, Lillian Carlson. Virginia Mitchell, and Doris McDonough also belong. 34 1942 THE GOBBLER Tonight we are going to a convention at Radio City. When we get there we decide to go to a studio before it begins. Evelyn Lee is there taking all the mother’s parts in the Lux Radio series. At the convention Julius Ceplikas is the guest speaker. He is the president of Standard Oil, where Phyllis Terret, by the way, is doing research work. Margaret Milne as Phyllis’s secretary is taking notes for her. Two seats away from us are Eleanor Kreusel and Elizab eth Doherty. They run one of these reducing businesses. There is a beauty parlor there, where Carolyn Dimery and Dorothy Stone will fix your locks and Leah Broughton your fingernails. John Martin is the business manager, and Margaret Curtin their bookkeeper. Frederick Hill is on the stage as representative of the American Dental Society. Later we learn that Janna Daly is his assistant. After the convention we bump into Frances Peel and Gertrude McKay who have an exclusive dressmaker’s shop on 5th Ave. We go to see it and on the way meet William Wood, of the American Hor¬ ticultural Association, and Calvin Tardiff, Stanwood Morse, Walter Ma- zurenko, and Eugene Fionte. They still live in Mass, and have truck gardening establishments. They tell us that Robert Donahue, Ernest Scowcroft, Robert Mattheson and Francis Hayes, of the U. S. Air Force, are in Washington. When we get to the Peel-McKay shop we see Frances Fleming and Connie Fitzgerald, Henry Street Social workers, and Carmella Petteruto, secretary to New York State governor Robert Wenzel. Next door to the shop is an orphanage run by Gertrude Cook, as¬ sisted by Lillian Kattar, Marion Kimball, and Jane Proulx. Jane tells me Fileen Proulx is helping Doris Wilson in the latter’s photography studio. They are near William Morse’s nickelodeon shop. The next morning when I go downstairs I see one of the porters talking to an important-looking gentleman who happens to be the man¬ ager. It is Earl Rottler. He tells me that there are branch establishments in Philadelphia, Boston, run by Kenneth Marshall and Joseph Gile. He also tells me John Bonney, Frederick Blackstock, and Charles Mc¬ Kinnon are skiing instructors in New England. Henrietta Holz is physical instructor there at a sporting lodge. Lottie Kozlowski and Carolyn Gile are school teachers in Boston and Edward McCallion, Harvey Jockson, and Paul De Teresi are all officers and are stationed in Washington. 35 THE GOBBLER 1942 dta±± of • • • An Earl but no count.

The boys on the team realized this game, if won, would make it a highly successful season; or if lost, a rather poor one. Before 4,000 fans on the holiday morning Johnson High finally chalked up a victory over its suburban rival by the score of 8 to 7. It was the first time since 1913 that Johnson had defeated Punchard, and the second time in that long span of years Johnson had scored on their Andover opponents, playing a 7-7 tie game back in 1921. The usual starting line-up was: 1. e. Boeglin, 1. t. P. La Fond, 1. g. Poll, c. Saunders or Cramton, r. g. L. LaFond, r. t. P. Hulub, r. e. F. Sullivan, q. b. McKinnon, r. H. b. R. Rullivan, 1. h. b. Rennie, f. b. F. Stewart (Captain). At the banquet given under the auspices of the Eclectic Club, Mr. Hayes awarded sweaters to the following: Guerrera, P. Lafond, Saun¬ ders, McKinnon, Boeglin and Stewart. 51 THE GOBBLER 1942 BOYS’ BASKETBALL This year’s basketball team, under the leadership of Paul Routhier, had a successful season, finishing- second in the Lowell Suburban League. Captain Routhier and William Glidden were the high scorers. The first team consisted of Captain Routhier, William Glidden, Chester Crampton, Prank Stewart, Jack Stewart and George Barker. BASEBALL The following were chosen to represent Johnson on the diamond: Charles McCubbin, Paul Routhier, Lrank Stewart, Ray Sullivan, Paul Hulub, Alex Milne, Harry McPherson, Charlie McKinnon, Don Rennie, Neil Keating, Ward, McLvoy, Thompson, McKay, J.

All but Jean McNab, Henrietta Holz (who were co-captains), Car- mella Petteruto, and two first rate managers — Thelma Champion and Fran Peel — will be back next year. 53 GOBBLER 1942 T H E Staff of the Johnson Journal 54 1942 THE GOBBLER JUNIOR - SENIOR PROMENADE 55 THE GOBBLER 1942 cz futocj xafiiii Key to Baby Page Top row, left to right: Beatrice Britton, Mary Norris, Thelma Champion Middle, left to right: Charles and Daniel McCarthy, Marion and Frank Stewart, Frances Peel Bottom, left to right: Norman Andrew, Barbara Bannan, Doris Wilson 56 THE ADVERTISERS Q. di.
