Buckley, teacher and pal. THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL MESSAGE TO THE SENIORS Spare Time S EVERAL years ago a young man in Chicago found that no one wanted to pay him for his services. His financial condition was critical, but he de¬ cided to give his services to Hull House, free of charge. This man is today a vice-president of one of our largest motor car companies. Another young man who worked for a railroad spent his spare time in a hotel lobby where he made friends with many lumbermen and ranchers of wealth. Later he studied banking, and these same ranchers and lumbermen whose friendship he had cultivated during his spare time financed him in a successful banking business. Still another young man who was paid for pushing a truck on the docks became curious regarding the labels on the goods he handled. As a consequence he decided that he would devote his spare time to learning all he could about the products he handled and the countries from which they came. One thing led to another, and soon he knew so much about foreign trade that he was taken off his truck and given a responsible position abroad. This Key to Success is used by many successful persons, and is before all who attend school, where the best students are those who do not confine their studies to school hours, but work after regular school hours as well, to improve their standing. It’s what we do in our spare time, and without pay, that con¬ vinces leaders we truly wish to serve. Eight hours of work, eight hours of sleep, and eight hours of play is a satis¬ factory formula for the average man. There is nothing the matter with it except that it will usually lead to average results. It is not good enough to carry off honors. Elbert Hubbard has said that the one who never does more than he is paid for never gets paid for more than he does. Those who wish to go places and do things must prepare for this experience during their spare time. Alvah G. Hayes, Principal 6 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL THE FACULTY Alvah G.

We’ll always love you, Tho’ we are far or near. Thanks to our teachers, And those who have seen us all through, Tho’ time may part us, In thought we’re with you. Johnson, we’ll miss you, We’ve shared all our tears and our laughs. You stand behind us, As we take our separate paths, Classmates forever, Through all that the future may tell, Our Alma Mater, We bid you farewell. —Audrey Ferrin 8 SENIOR CLASS THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL HERBERT H. BRIGHTMAN “All I ask is to be let alone.” Buddy’s an all-round guy, small in stature, but big in heart. He seems quiet, but don’t let that fool you, ’cause he has plenty of “interests.” VICTOR P. BRIGHTMAN “Men of few words are the best of men.” With his guitar and his music Vic makes a welcome member in any group. His curly hair and easy smile will be remembered for some time. NORMAN T. CAMPBELL “Stately and tall, he moves in the hall, The chief of a thousand for grace.” School Play 2, 3, 4 Baseball 1, 3 Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4 Student Council 1, 2, 3, 4 Prom Committee 3, 4 Journal 1, 2 Gobbler 4 Class Orator Stay as you are, Norm. The world needs more like you. ARTHUR A. CARLSON “Afoot and light hearted, I take to the open road.” Arthur is as quiet as a mouse. He likes to hunt, fish and swim. Soon he will be the Navy’s gain and our loss. PATRICIA A. CHADWICK “Music hath charms.” Band 1, 2 McIntosh Speaking Contest 3, 4 (2nd prize) Pat’s musically inclined, leaning toward the long haired stuff. Massa¬ chusetts State College is her choice for future education, and we wish her the best of luck with her plans. J. WARREN CHADWICK, Jr. “If we meet again, we’ll smile indeed.” School Play 4 We shall always remember Warren for his red hair and his easy blushes. A farm lad at heart, and a great sports¬ man. We sincerely hope you make the grade in Uncle Sam’s Forestry Service. We’ll be cheering for you, Red. GARDNER D. COOK “A little laughter now and then Is cherished by the best of men.” His bright yellow hair can be seen clearly in any crowd. For plenty of gags, there’s always Gardner. He enjoys S. S. S. most when he’s absent. RITA N. COPPOLA “A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance.” Journal 2, 3, 4 Gobbler 4 Tiny, full of fun, and worried about everyone’s troubles but her own, is our sweet Rita. Her ever-sunny disposi¬ tion has captured the heart of every classmate. JUNE A. DAVIS “And good luck go with thee.” Gobbler 4 Her contagious giggles have bright¬ ened many a dull spare. We will never forget her candid drawings and oil paintings. Good luck in your commer¬ cial drawing career, June. RUBY C. DILL “Full of dignity and grace” Ruby is quiet, in school and out, but a true friend to all who know her. A wonderful horseback rider, and fish- erwoman, she’ll surely be a success in life. 11 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL MARGARET ANN HOLDER “Thy voice is like the angels ’.” School Play 4 Gobbler 4 Journal 3, 4 Glee Club 3, 4 Maggie possesses an excellent sing¬ ing voice, and a love for flying. She’s also better than average at cooking and making her clothes. Luck to you in your art career, Mag. VINCENT J. IPPOLITO “ Kind he was and quick to give his services.” Quiet in the classrooms, but a lot of fun away from them, Ippy makes a welcome member in any crowd. Cer¬ tainly air-minded is the one word which seems to sum him up, so we wish him all the luck in the world with his career. GERALD C. KENT “I shall not live in vain.” Gerry and his breezy Ford will leave an irreplaceable vacancy in John¬ son’s night life. He has been an all¬ round friend. DONALD R. KIMEL “A merry heart maketh a cheerful” countenance.” Gobbler 4 Baseball 4 Class Will Don’s a great pal of Charlie Spi- vak’s, and, I might add, a great pal to all of us. When your plans need a backer, Don’s there, especially if you’re one of the fair sex. A swell classmate and friend. PHILIP LONG “God bless the man who invented sleep.” Football 1, 2, 3, 4 Baseball 1, 2, 3 , 4 Basketball 2, 3, 4 Vice-President 4 School Play 4 Gobbler 4 Prom Benefit 3, 4 Happy-go-lucky Phil—not a care in the world, except maybe, “When can I go home and sleep?’’ We’ll always remember his slow easy ways and that, farm boy shuffle. HOWARD F. DOHERTY “My kingdom for a horse.” Secretary-Treasurer 2, 3, 4 Football 4 Basketball 3, 4 Prom Committee 3, 4 Small in stature, with curly, blond hair, everybody’s favorite, that’s How¬ ie, all right! He loves horses, and his chief ambition is to be a jockey. More speed to you, Howie! WILLIAM F. DRISCOLL “Better late than never.” Football 4 School Play 4 A weary veteran of the Battle of Room 6. 1945, Bill has rested com¬ fortably with us this past year. But when any social event took place, you can be sure he lent a mighty helping hand in the preparation. NICHOLAS J. EVANGELOS “Friendship and knowledge in his per¬ son shine.” Class President 1, 2, 3, 4 Prom Committee 3, 4 Class Play 4 Gobbler 4 Football 1, 2, 3, 4 (Co-captain) Basketball 1, 2, 3, 4 (Captain) Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4 (Captain) Nicky is an all-around sport and a really fine classmate. WILLIAM J. GOSSELIN “Blame it on his youth.” Football 2, 3, 4 Basketball 2, 3, 4 Prom Benefit 4 Stunt Night 4 Class Historian Bill, with his Atlas physique, and his easy-going nature, will be sadly missed by us all. Though he seems a little on the quiet side, his witty re¬ marks have often brightened a dull room or party. EDWARD E. HAMEL “Silence is more eloquent than words.” Chief’s buddy in everything, includ¬ ing trouble. Always ready with a joke and smile, Eddie will never be long without friends. 12 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL CARMELO S. MANGANO “Some villain has done me wrong.” Carmelo was this year’s Momo of Room 18, but he managed to survive Al’s best pranks, even when the back of his chair fell off. Carmelo occupies all his spare time hunting either game or women. His pet subject is physics, and he always helps Vince get his problems done. Eventually he will join his brothers in the plumbing business. ELEANOR V. MARLAND “The joy of youth and health her eyes displayed, And ease of heart her very look con¬ veyed.” Eleanor spent four years at Johnson after attending so many grammar schools that it would be impossible to name them all.

MOORADKANIAN “Sweet sounds, oh, beautiful musid” Orchestra Concert Master 1, 2, 3 Band 1, 2, 3 Ed came to us from Lawrence, where, as he puts it, he was spanked with the unforgettable nickname of Momo. You only have to know him to realize what a true friend and how good hearted he is. EDWARD A. PEVINE “In my merry Oldsmobile” Band 1, 2 Here we have Eddy, who’ll blush at the drop of a pin. His happy-go- lucky manner will win him many friends. Eddy leaves nothing to be desired in the way of a pal. JOAN PITMAN “Silence is a virtue.” Journal 2 A. A. 4 (Treas.) Joan is tiny and shy, with long blond hair and blue eyes. Just give her a typewriter and watch her go. JOSEPH A. RAND “ He was not merely a chip off the old block, but the old block itself.” Play 4 Eating, sleeping, women, and school are to Joe’s liking, in that order. And of course, a good argument. Remem¬ ber the time we had getting Joe back in English? We’re proud that Joe has been accepted for officer’s training in the Merchant Marine. ALMA K. SANFORD “Angels are painted fair, to look like you.” Journal 1, 2, 3, Gobbler 4 Glee Club 3, 4 Prom Committee 3, 4 Basketball Manager 4 D. A. R.

SKINNER “ Hold the forfl I am comingV ’ Football 3, 4 Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4 Basketball 3, 4 Journal 4 Bob is the class woman-chaser, and his smooth dancing, dark hair, height, and general good looks make this an easy task for him.

P.S.—He’s really proud of that tired old car. CHARLES H. WALSH “Blessings on thee, little man.” There’s an old saying that good things come in small packages, and the Class of ’46 has found this true in Chuck’s case. He has a smil° for everyone and a friendly manner. Ne d we say more? CLAIRE N.

WILLIAM WILSON “Travel, in the younger set, is a part of education.” Play 4 Football 2, 3 Gobbler 4 Bill goes his own way, and lets nothing bother him.

WINNING “Speech is great, but silence is greater.” Girl Reserve 1, 2, 3, 4 Gobbler 4 Red dislikes very much to read. Her fondness is for Guy Lombardo, Bing Crosby, and a certain ex-saiior. Good luck in home economics, whether you study it at school, or decide to take it up on your own, Ethel. MABEL C. ARLIT “A penny for your thoughts.” Journal 1, 2, 3 Mabel’s pride is her newly-painted car which has a habit of getting flat tires any time, any place. Sigma Zeta Sigma, bookkeeping, “Stardust” and T. Dorsey are a few of the things she likes. Anyone who knows May likes her. CAROL P. BERRY “Thy heart is true as steel.” Journal 2 Gobbler 4 Tall, b lond, and a fine student is Carol.

He appreciates all jokes, even though they may be on himself. We shall miss seeing, almost hearing, his gay Scotch plaid ties. Here’s hoping he gets that chance to be a flyer. AUDREY L. FERRIN “To know her well is to like her better.” Journal 1, 2, 3, 4 Gobbler 4 Prom Committee 3 Class Will 4 Glee Club 4 Audrey, our song bird, is as sweet as she looks.

JUNE INGRAM “Haste n.akes waste” Majorette 1, 2, 3, 4 Glee Club 3 Gobbler 4 Volley Ball 4 June’s a slow motion gal who even¬ tually gets there, but never hurries to do it.

SALLY LOU KANF “My appetite comes to me while eating” Journal 1, 2, 3, 4 Glee Club 4 Gobbler 4 Sally is a real baseball fan. She swoons over Dave Ferris as if he were Frankie.

Our clothes, our foods, our homes, were different. The character of our work was changed. Our environment and thinking were those of a new age. Millions of dollars had become hundreds of millions in our national planning. Private industry risked tens of millions on ventures that earlier would have commanded hardly a tenth as much. Hosiery and furniture alike were being made from coal, water, and air; dresses from wood; farm fertilizers from the atmosphere; camphor from pine stumps. These and many other achievements of chemical synthesis had altered or made obsolete trade practices and customs as old as the race. Moreover, the scientist was just getting started. Tens of thousands of new chemical compounds and metallic alloys awaited his full exploration. We were speculating on the eventual conquest of disease. The elimination of poverty, at least as a social problem, was considered a goal that well might be realized. And, as organic chemistry was the source spring of a major share of the infini¬ tude of changes that inspired such hopes, the influences of the First World War could be very definitely traced here also. Our organic chemistry industry in the United States grew directly in answer to needs violently made evident by the war. It is unnecessary to detail to chemists what has happened in chemistry since 1914. That year a mere handful of 528 workers made up the nation’s total em¬ ployment in the production of coal-tar chemicals. American-made dyes were not even listed in the official census reports. Our farmers had to buy German potash and Chilean nitrate. Our physicians looked to Europe for important drugs and optical glass. All science looked to Europe for leadership. The bitter lessons of the First World War brought about the establishment of an organic chemical industry in the United States. For this, we have much to be thankful. I am not implying that chemistry provides the one Aladdin’s lamp which all scientists must rub. However, let chemistry be ignored and the other lamps become lifeless ' brass. Perhaps the greatest benefit that has come to America from our chemical awakenings is the renascence of all science that has accom¬ panied it. The chemical synthesis of vitamins, for example, to say nothing of hormones and the sulfa drugs, not only is revolutionizing medicine and diet¬ etics but putting these sciences on incomparably higher planes of performance and future promise. The famous tribute paid Washington—first in peace and first in war—might be paid with equal justice to chemistry. Its record during the First World War is history. Its contribution to the nation’s progress during the peaceful years of the 20’s and 30’s while the organic chemical industry grew to maturity, 19 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL helped crowd into those years many of the most notable advances that mankind has gained since civilization began. The nation emerged from the Second World War with capacities for making plastics, synthetic fibers, nitrates, hydro-carbons, high octane gasolines, and literally scores of chemical and other raw materials on a large scale that only a few years ago was beyond our comprehension. The changes that have taken place in our thinking and planning approach the unbelievable when one detaches himself from the present long enough to regain the viewpoint of only the recent past. During the last war, the epic fight of the Royal Air Force to save England, raging month upon month against odds, was also a chemists’ fight to produce better fuels—fuels that would get planes into the air in a fraction of the former time, that would give greater speed, longer, and yet longer ranges. The Ameri¬ can chemist was in that fight because he knew more about motor fuels than any chemist on earth. The Battle of Britain became a testing development and laboratory in which a nation’s life was the stake. In the First World War, Germany’s early mastery and world monopoly of the production of benzene and other coal-tar crudes and intermediates—her then “secret weapon”—brought her armies almost to victory. It was only by prodigious effort and at huge cost that private industry in the United States was able, during and after that war, to win independence in these chemicals, which are part and parcel of the nation’s economic life-blood both in war and peace. Today, we are doubly independent. Our coal-tar chemical industry is se¬ curely established. In addition, the possible output of benzene and toluene from petroleum is many times their peak output from coal-tar. Furthermore, in super motor fuels, which were the last war’s deciding weapons, we excelled the enemy’s best in quantity and quality alike. Where Germany stood in 1914 with coal-tar, the United States stands today with petroleum. During the war, we produced to destroy. In the future, we shall produce to build and we shall continue to invent and thus to multiply our chemical possessions. Now that peace reigns once more, the stream of production com¬ pared with its volume in the past, will be as a great river is to one of its tributary creeks. We shall have at our command ten, fifty, a hundred times what we had before, chiefly of new materials. The course of the American chemist will be a bold course—a course toward a better destiny. And all science will set its course by the same compass. William E. Torrey, Jr. CLASS ESSAY Forgotten Heroes FMAR is brutal. War with its carnage, ruin and bloodshed is best forgotten. I I I Peace is heaven. Peace is tranquility. But peace with all its pleasures and comforts is not truly ours until we provide security for our wounded vet¬ erans. I mean real security, not the parsimonious dole offered to our veterans 20 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL under Public Law 144. Under this law, passed as an economy measure, disabled veterans who are single and without dependents, are offered a monthly pension of from eight to twenty dollars, an amount less than that received by Nazi and Jap prisoners of war. All through the war, millions of Americans made more money than ever before. Many knew not what to do with a part of their earnings. While all these high wages were being paid, our American soldiers were fighting on foreign territory. They dodged bullets, faced enemy fire, slept in fox holes, ate K-rations, and watched the last spark of life fade out of their buddies. Thousands of our boys made this supreme sacrifice, only to have their cold, lifeless forms placed in the foreign soil, a plain white cross on their graves. Oh, yes, we had millions of patriotic citizens, people who did all that was requested for the war effort. Our food was rationed, and many of us accepted it without griping. We had dim-outs and practice air-raids. A large number of citizens went regularly to the blood bank, bought bonds and stamps, planted victory gardens and devoted their spare time to the various patriotic organiza¬ tions. But with all these war-time activities, we were reaping large profits and saving for the future. We didn ' t have to endure any real hardships. We weren’t directly affected by the war except maybe by the absence of loved ones. For many of us the end of the war meant happier days ahead. No more rationing and plenty of money to spend. But for many of those who really fought, the future now offers little. Many will be scarred for life. Some were suffering with tropical diseases and battle fatigue, hundreds were mental cases, and far too many were returning with the loss of limbs. Through scientific research and development, some were supplied with artificial limbs, and they rejoiced over the fact that they were no longer handicapped. But what about the less fortunate? They must remain in government hospitals as cripples. Here they are sure of excellent medical care and the latest medical equipment. But in spite of these conveniences, who could enjoy an indefinite period or a lifetime in a hospital? We must remember that a large number of our disabled veterans were only boys fresh out of high school. In years they are young, but their experiences have made them more mature. They didn’t have a chance to go to college to learn a profession. They missed the real joys of adolescence. And now it is too late. Their plans are ended. They forfeited their earning capacity to fight for us, and because they did, many ended up in medical institutions. Yet the American people sat back while our legislators passed a law that can only pauperize our American heroes. Will the veterans remain in hospitals as helpless war victims whom fellow citizens failed to heed? Will their plans of someday marrying be fulfilled on twenty measly dollars a month? Will they leave the hospital against the advice of medical authorities and go to work because our legislators failed to recognize the value of their sacrifice? We all know that we must struggle to win a battle of health and sickness. We all know that encouragement is an absolute necessity for the heart-broken 21 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL handicapped. And yet we sit back while our lawmakers slap the faces of our loved ones with a pension too small for subsistence for the most miserly human being. It’s up to us as good American citizens to exercise our right to repeal the passage of Public Law 144. The boys did their job, and medical authorities did theirs. Now what are we going to do? Would you become a cripple for twenty dollars a month? Do you have the heart to deprive our American heroes of a decent normal life? Stop, and really think about this pathetic problem. Laborers can use many effective methods for obtaining higher wages. But these boys lying helpless on army cots in hospitals throughout the country cannot solve their dilemma. It is entirely up to us to write to our Congressmen to have Public Law 144 repealed. We are very fortunate. We can earn a good full week’s pay. But what could you do with fifty-eight cents a day? To efface this shameful situation and to speed our veteran’s recovery, write to your Congressman today, without fail. Shirley M. Wentworth CLASS ORATION With the Ropes of the Past, We Will Ring the Bells of the Future m AN has always felt two seemingly contradictory urges within himself. One urge results in the thirst for novelty, and in the changes that will bring a fuller and freer tomorrow. The other is the equally basic urge to hold on to what we have, “to stand pat,” not to gamble present advantages for theo¬ retical improvements. But these urges are not contradictory. They work together and supplement each other. The conservative urge, the urge to keep what we have, is a divinely planted instinct that keeps us in touch with each other and the past. By means of it, we develop that marvelous product called habit. By it, we eliminate a constant life of chaos and repeated errors. It develops for us magnificent traditions such as Washington’s advice to cultivate “friendly relations with all, permanent alliances with none,” or Lin¬ coln’s sublime appeal to live “with malice toward none and charity for all.” This urge to preserve the best of the past keeps fresh in our minds the great truths of religion which we learned as trusting children. It was this urge which caused the old Scotchman of Victorian days, Carlyle, to say, “The older I grow, and I am now on the brink of eternity, the clearer comes back to me the question and answer I learned at my mother’s knee: ‘What is the end of man? To know God, to serve Him, and to love Him here and to be happy with Him forever hereafter.’ ” But this urge does not bind us with our faces to the past, longing for the days that were, and blinding us to the glory that is and shall be. For like the beacon or the headland that guides the sailor to the coast, and which, when reached, opens up to him the channel to a safe harbor, this urge to conserve the 22 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL best, lures us on to the pathway of success. Then it continues to serve as an unfailing landmark, should the shades of disappointment or failure fall around us. And when we have learned well the story of the past, whether that past reaches back into the antiquity of Rome and Greece, or whether it extends no farther back than last week, it fires in us an ambition, a hope, and a dream, to carry the story on and to weld it to our Book of Life. This thought was beauti¬ fully expressed by our own Oliver Wendell Holmes, when he wrote, in “The Chambered Nautilus”: “Build thee more stately mansion, oh, my soul As the swift seasons roll!” That is one of the great lessons of education—to garner the golden grains of the past which others have sown before us and in our turn sow them again to provide harvest and nourishment for those who will come after us. And so our happy, busy days at Johnson High School are drawing to an end tonight. Here we wove the ropes that will ring the bells of the future. Here we have made lasting friendships among fellow students and teachers. Here we learned the physical habits of neatness, cleanliness, and good grooming. Here, too, we developed the moral habits of respect for authority, of promptness, reliability, responsibility and honesty. In this old building we learned our country’s history, the glories of her past, and the golden hopes she holds out for the future of mankind. Nor during our four years have we forgotten to realize the sacrifices made for us by devoted parents. At first, we absorbed these lessons with no great thought, but as the senior year wore on, we began to understand more each day that teachers and parents were changing the leading strings of childhood into the ropes that we could grasp to ring the bells of the future. And because the lessons of both school and home were well taught, we know in all humility that we shall ring the bells with these ropes, and that the strains will join the sweet music of the spheres to ring in the song of peace. Norman T. Campbell VALEDICTORY A Plea to All America T HE United States has just won the greatest war in history. The ingeniousness of the American people, coupled with the good old Yankee doggedness that kept every American at his job, has seen us through this most critical point in our history. And now, another great challenge faces us; another task which calls for even more sacrifice than winning the war did. The people of Europe are starving! The scraps from your supper table tonight might have saved a life, the crusts that Junior wouldn’t eat, the dark bread that sister abhors, the white bread that puts too much weight on Aunt Jane, the potatoes that you, yourself, couldn’t finish. THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL It is hard for us here in safe, happy America to realize it. We complain about shortages; sugar is scarce and butter more so; but, there are honey and oleo¬ margarine to substitute. Yes, we have our struggles and shortages, but we are not starving! It is easy to be a little selfish when our larders are full to the brim. A trip through our local market would be a voyage into fairyland for the children of Europe. The bananas, oranges, grapefruit and tangerines would doubtless be strange, new wonders to them. The heaps of fresh vegetables, lettuce, spinach, asparagus, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, string-beans, would be unheard of. The shelves of canned goods with tempting labels, and the glass jars from which gleam carrots, beets, apricots, prunes, golden corn and peas are a sight they have never seen. And what an impression the tempting and beguiling forms of grain cereals would make upon a child who has difficulty getting even the most essential grain food—BREAD! It is natural to assume an air of indifference. Europe is many thousands of miles away. We have just finished sacrificing our men and materials to save its civilization from a war that we did not want. Many parents have lost sons; many wives have lost husbands; and brothers, fathers, and sweethearts are con¬ spicuously absent from American homes everywhere. These people are bitter toward the unknown nations who claimed the lives of thei r loved ones for their defense. In their bitterness they are likely to take the isolationist’s attitude, “Let them shift for themselves!” Little do they realize that in their blindness they are punishing the Europeans who did not want war any more than we did; mainly the children, and then the women and the old folks who knew freedom and peace, perhaps, under an old regime, in a generation when Hitler and Musso¬ lini had not cast their sordid shadows on the history of the world. Perhaps some of us cannot find the reason why we should take food from our mouths to feed someone we don’t know, that we’ve never seen, that a few months ago was hated and feared as an enemy. You are not being asked to deprive yourself of food; merely to conserve. Use up your stale bread in puddings, sauces and casseroles. Don’t over-buy. Purchase just what your family is able to consume, and don’t throw away any single thing! It is unbelievable that the growth and living standard of future Europe lie in our hands. Every day men are fainting at their work in factories and shops. Every day essential workers are being confined to their beds. Every day farmers re dropping behind their plows. All this for lack of proper nourishment! All this because you threw away a crust of bread tonight, or last night or last week. It is impossible for the people of Germany, Italy and other occupied countries to carry on the vital work of rebuilding a civilization that was torn down by the ravages of war if they haven’t the fuel that will give them the energy to carry on. That fuel is our staff of life—BREAD! With the civilizations of these countries too weak to rebuild their essential industries, the burden of supporting them falls twice as heavily upon our shoul¬ ders. Starving people suffering from malnutrition cannot work. That means factories are idle, which, in turn, means there are no goods to be sold from which THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL these people would obtain an income, and so, a land of starving people is depend¬ ent upon stronger nations. Hungry farmers cannot work. The life of the Euro¬ pean peasant is a hard one, and requires plenty of basic, body-building foods. The farmer is unable to till his soil, plant his seed and reap his harvest; and so, there is no food. Starvation takes with it a nation’s pride. Hunger reduces the people to scavenging in garbage containers for rotten, smelly left-overs. Hunger forces them to beg. Hunger makes them steal and even kill! And so, the morals of a starving country drop, and its dignity is sacrificed. The United States of America is the most powerful nation in the world. It has wealth beyond the conception of a starving European. With the American people lies the power to save a dying civilization. We have only to make up our minds to do something about it and then put our shoulders to the wheel. So, come on, let’s do it now. Remember, “Use it up; do without; make it do; never throw it out!’’ Gloria D. Bottai CLASS HISTORY T HE time has come for the soft velvet curtain, heavily laden with memories, to fold gently down on the final scene of our four high school years. We have listened endlessly to older folks telling us that they were the happiest years of our lives, and before long we will realize the truth in the meaning of that phrase. No matter what our future plans or positions may be, we will always look back to the many happy times we had together. The curtain swung open for us in September, 1942, as we bravely, yet shyly, took our place as the new students at Johnson High. At first we found the system of changing rooms rather difficult, and were quite bewildered when we accidentally walked into a class of haughty seniors. We soon discovered that being a high school student wasn’t as glamorous as it was cut out to be and found ourselves studying rather than attending parties and dances. When these differences were settled, we buckled down to real business and elected our leaders at a class meeting. Nicky Evangelos was chosen president, Norman Campbell vice-president, and Rita Mulchahey was to be our secretary- treasurer. Since this was a war year, and everyone was doing his-bit to help, the school declared a holiday so that we could have a scrap drive. It was extremely success¬ ful and an amusing time was had by those who participated. In February we were honored with a visit from an Indian Chief who dis¬ played his talents and did an Indian war dance to the accompaniment of music provided by Oscar Soucy, who nearly died of fright on the stage while the chief swung a mean-looking club over his head. Gym classes started this year with Miss Howe and Mr. Lee as instructors. When we returned in the fall, we felt like very experienced individuals as we stepped into our new role as sophomores. Officers were elected immediately, and Nicky was again chosen to be our 25 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL leader. Phil Long took over the vice-presidency and Howard Doherty was our new secretary-treasurer. These offices were held by this group for the remaining three years. Since the war was still raging, and many Johnson seniors and graduates were fighting for us, we formed a student council and began selling war bonds and stamps. Next, a service flag was purchased, dedicated, and placed in the hall for everyone to see. Miss Glenna Kelly was replaced by Miss Sheridan, and Miss Theresa Kelly took over Miss Howe’s duties. Trouble was brewing over the cafeteria and finally the students boycotted it. The difficulty was soon settled and we were allowed to eat again. In September of 1944 we entered Johnson as “upper-classmen” and were quite proud of the fact. Miss Bascom was added to the faculty and we lost Miss McAloon to a lucky captain in the army. Our friend “Joe Kemm” originated this year, and created quite a sensation for some time. We held a very successful magazine campaign for the Curtis Company which increased the sum of money in our class treasury. On May 8th the war in Germany ended, and after a solemn talk by Mr. Hayes which quieted many of us down, we were dismissed for the day. In June we were given the T. B. Patch Test and all felt greatly relieved by the fact that we had no sign of the dread disease. The prom was the highlight of the year, since it was the first for many. When we returned to school in September, 1945, the world was at peace, since the fighting in Japan had ceased during our summer vacation. The following new teachers were welcomed to the school: Miss Callanan, Mrs. Manson, Miss Gillen and Miss James. The lunch-room was now under new management; Room 2 was converted into a dining room and hot dinners were served. Stunt night was held in place of the Freshman-Senior dance, and this new plan proved to be both entertaining and successful. The idea of noon-day dancing was presented by the student council to Mr. Hayes who followed the plan through. The Prom-Benefit Dance was livened up with a skit by Nicky, Chief, Bob Skinner, Howard, and Bill Driscoll, who gave a splendid performance of a ladies ' sewing circle which everyone heartily enjoyed. There are many personal memories which are not listed in this history, and some which we would just as soon forget; for the memories which will stand out in our minds as we travel the hard, rough roads to success are the happy ones which brought pleasure and laughter with them, and no matter how far away we may travel, these thoughts will draw us back to “the happiest years of our lives,” which were spent with classmates we learned to love and understand in four memorable years at Johnson High. Alma Sanford Bill Gosselin 26 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL CLASS PROPHECY PI OR two or three years now the newspapers and radio have been telling the H world how a quiet little New England town has been transformed into a L busy modern metropolis since the United Nations has made North Andover, Massachusetts, its headquarters. I glance at the date on my newspaper—June 11,1956, exactly ten years to the day since the class of ’46 at Johnson High School said “Good-bye and good- luck” to each other and went their separate ways. I feel a thrill of excitement when I think that in a few hours I shall return to my home town, and perhaps see many familiar faces. But I must keep it a deep, dark secret that Alfred McKee, known as the greatest promoter of horse-racing in the country, is suffer¬ ing from nostalgia! The jet-propelled plane which is transporting me from California to my famous Merrimack Valley Downs at Salem, New Hampshire, is piloted by none other than my old classmate, Vincent (Ippy) Ippolito. In New York I am joined by a Johnson girl, Beverly Howard, who is now a medical assistant to a famous brain surgeon. Bev is the owner of the famous horse “Sure to Win” who will run in the next Handicap which I will promote at my Salem, New Hampshire, track. Howard Doherty is her jockey and Art Drummond is the trainer. Leaving New York we are pleased to recognize Kay Roche and Claire War¬ wick as air hostesses, and we enjoy some time in reminiscing. They tell us that Arlene Donnelly operates a Beauty Salon, Martha Glidden is a child’s nurse and Emily George has an exclusive dress shop in Washington, D. C. When we arrive in North Andover, we are welcomed by the genial Mayor of North Andover, Mr. William (Goosie) Gosselin, and Mr. Don Kimel, who is at the head of the radio broadcasting at the U. N. As we drive through the city, we are amazed at the modern highways and the buildings that have replaced familiar scenes. Grogan’s Field, where we won (?) so many ball games has become the site of a large hotel managed by Bob Smith. When we stop here to eat our dinner, we see Velma Hinton, who is the telephone operator, and Eleanor Gaudet, Ruby Dill, and Rose Lawlor, who have charge of the dining room. Tommy Giaquinta is the head chef, and is known far and wide for his ability. When we ask for the news of all our other pals, Don tells us that Bill Wil¬ son is a successful optometrist, Palmer Long manages a large motion picture theatre, Marjorie Mitchell is a veterinarian and Tony Laurenza is an airline official. Mabel Arlit manages a fleet of taxicabs, and Rita Coppola has a chain of florist shops in several large cities. Elsie Miller has used to good advantage the Southern accent she acquired in the school play and has captivated a wealthy Georgian planter. Audrey Ferrin and Steve are happily married. She writes lyrics for Irving Berlin’s songs, and Steve manages Audrey! Phil and Alma finally made up their 27 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL minds and decided it was cheaper for two to live than one. They have a special little ball club of their own, known as the “Long A. C.” Gloria Bottai and Frank, her husband, are improving their time and their minds by studying medicine at Western University. Refreshed by our meal and pleasant conversation, we are now ready to make a tour of this new metropolis with the Mayor. As we go up Main Street we notice a building where the City Newspapers are published, the Gazette, edited by Rita Mulchahey, and the International, edited by Larry Walker. June Ingram is head reporter and Barbara Cochrane writes the T. T. A. column for the Gazette. Vic Brightman is Larry’s photographer and Carol Berry writes the humor column. We see a large sign on a very swanky building, “You Want It—We Got It” and Bill tells us that here Clarence Spencer runs a very modern junk exchange. Next door is the Mangano Plumbing Works and across the street a large truck¬ ing concern headed by Gerry Kent. We call on Blanche Turner, who is hostess and dental assistant to her father, and as we leave her office we meet a distinguished and familiar Merchant Marine officer, Capt. Joseph Rand, Chief of Naval Operations in Washington. We visit the radio studio and we are amused and amazed by Bob Skinner and Lizzie Marland, who are comedians on several of the popular programs. We notice several large lighted signs billing a performance of the Ballet Russe, and read the words “Starring Margaret Ann Holder.” Bill invites us to a performance by the North Andover Symphony Orchestra under the direction of William Torrey. Donald Phair, Pat Chadwick and Arthur Terret are out¬ standing in the clarinet section. As we ride up Main Street we see a large impressive glass building across the street from where old Johnson stands. The grounds are laid out ideally and there is a huge athletic field and stadium. This, we are told, is the new high school. We see a young man coming down the steps staggering under a load of heavy books. We take a second look and discover it is Fred (Horror) White. He says he is taking his P. G. and really having a “peachy” time with all the new teachers. Barbara Lambert is teaching biology there, and Eleanor Finn is principal. Pat Bredbury is coaching girls’ athletics. Her girls have been unde¬ feated for four years. Sally Kane is the music supervisor and Jack Wilkinson is athletic coach for the boys. Fred tells us that Ethel Shapcott has charge of a nursery school for the children of the United Nations delegates established in the Old Johnson High School. Nancy Kinports is a Powers model in New York, and Shirley Pendlebury is owner of a large roller-skating rink at Salisbury Beach where she is teaching fancy skating. Nicky Evangelos is athletic coach at Phillips Exeter, and Helena Saunders is Superintendent at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. There is a beautiful hospital on the hill overlooking the lake where Dr. Oscar Soucy has his practice and Shirley Kelly and Rita Nicetta are his medical assistants. The United Nations Headquarters are situated on the Russell Estate where 28 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL Brooks School used to be. The walls of the main building are domed in beautiful murals painted by June Davis and Herbert Brightman. Shirley Wentworth is the charming receptionist and Joan Pitman and Mary Ness are highly-valued secretaries. Chuck Walsh and Eddie Hamel have taken over the old Kittredge estate and converted it into a rest home. (Eddie and Chuck are their own best clients!) Gardner Cook, Red Chadwick and Arthur Carlson have bought up most of the little town of West Boxford and are raising chickens on a large scale. They specialize in featherless chickens! Ethel Winning and Stewart Wood are married and manage the Town Infirm¬ ary. Norman Campbell is a Baptist minister and has the largest congregation of women of any church around. Francis Shottes teaches ballroom dancing for Arthur Murray. Bill Driscoll (Dric) is a draft clerk (he opens and closes windows) at the nation’s largest bank. Eddie Pevine tailors the clothes for all the distinguished gentlemen of the United Nations. And so our visit comes to an end! It has been wonderful to think what bene¬ fits our little town and our friends could derive from the good fortune of being chosen for such a distinguished honor of being the site for maintaining inter¬ national peace and security. We are “Off to the Races” in a cloud of dust when our futuristic dream is rudely interrupted by Miss Buckley calling the room to order! Respectfully attempted by Bev and Chief CLASS WILL We, the Class of 1946, being of sound mind (it says here in fine print.) do hereby grant to you juveniles a portion of our brains and knowledge. To begin with, our football co-captains, Nick Evangelos and Jackie Wilkin¬ son, leave their team’s victory over Punchard to Bob Mitchell. If Bob runs as fast as he drives, Heaven help Punchard! Bev Howard bequeaths her beauty and athletic ability to Joyce Robinson, but does Joyce really need either of them? Bob Smith grants the melodious music of his Mad Musical Maestros to Don James and his Four Ferocious Fiddlers. Elsie Miller relinquishes her office as president of the Sigma Zeta Sigma to Ruthie Fickenworth and Barbara Gallant. The expansion plans of the club make this twosome necessary. Ed Mooradkanian passes on his violin to Harold Vincent. Chuckie is astounded and wonders what to do with it. Barbara Cochrane leaves her never-ending gift of gab to Margaret Tullis. Midge is speechless. To Paul Adler goes a couple of spare inches of Howie Doherty’s tall stature. Wherfe are you going to put it, Paul? 29 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL Mary Ness, Shirley Wentworth, and Eleanor Marland leave their well-worn typewriters to Aggie Doherty, Bunnie Bashaw and Rosalie Camasso. Do the A’s in type go with this gift, girls? Our handsome boy Frannie Shottes leaves his week-end trips to Hilltop to Bob Blanchette. Bob wonders what Frannie can find interesting there since the place closed down. You’ll learn, Bob! Martha Glidden and Ruby Dill leave their carefully copied D. A. note-books to Mary Curley and Natalie Giglio. Just sit back and take it easy, kids. Tommy Giaquinta leaves his innocent look to Carmen Petteruto and Bob Nicetta. Their verdict is not guilty in both cases. Our atomic blondeshell Maggie Holder willingly bestows upon Joyce Gilman her precious bottle of peroxide. Now they’ll have a good excuse for calling you goldie, Joyce. Our own Mutt and Jeff combination, Vic and Herb Brightman, pass on their prize possessions, one well-strummed guitar and one well-thumbed Senior Social notebook, to Carl Nelson and Dave O’Melia. Your worries are over, boys. Our little personality kid, Alma Sanford, leaves her popularity and all-round good-naturedness to Marie Torpey. Now, Marie, you have twice your share. Bob Hope Skinner hands over his inexhaustible supply of corn and phone numbers to Francis Conners. Won’t Francis be surprised; and what a shock to the girls! Gloria Bottai passes on her one-man complex, plus her well-polished brains to Barbara Stewart. We wonder who the lucky 0. A. 0. is going to be. Bill Wilson bequeathes to Bob Wilson all the many unnecessary trips he has made to the office and all the confusion that goes with having like names. Helena Saunders leaves to Rita Farrell all her instruction books on how to attract the men from St. Johns. Men, that is! Tony Laurenzo solemnly passes on his sailor suit and his sea stories to Steve “Suds” Doherty. Steve can’t be any more salty than he already is. Ethel Shapcott leaves her contagious giggle and her key to a “laugh your way through” life to Mary Frechette. Officer Joe Rand leaves his smash hit performance in this year’s play to George Stewart. Think you can arrest a few laughs, George? Kay Roche passes on her shyness and the mischievous sparkle in her left eye to Franny Narushof. Franny is simply a terror now. To Herbie Wild goes Red Chadwick’s bee-ootiful blush. Is his face red! Barbara Lambert leaves her huge appetite while studying and her before¬ season trips to the beach to Marilyn Kent. Phil Long leaves his “Do not disturb” sign plus two alarm clocks to Don Dearden. Phil is certainly glad to get rid of the alarm clocks and Don has a good idea where he’ll use the “Do not disturb” sign. Mabel Arlit hands over her merry Oldsmobile to Denise Blanchette. Denise can slow down to 85 now. Vincent Ippolito bestows upon William Carter his trusty dictionary. For Bill’s benefit Ippy has added a few helpful hints of his own. 30 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL Rita Mulchahey reluctantly leaves her little black bag and her lady-like air to Barbara Campbell. Barbara doesn’t need the latter, and as for the little black bag, Rita probably won’t be able to get along without it for long. To Walter Kohl goes Palmer Long’s bashfulness. For once Walter is lost for words. Nancy Kinports leaves all the tips that may be found on her tables at the Puritan to Marie Consoli. A1 McKee really hates to give anything away free, but reluctantly he donates his books on “How to drive safely” to Dick Shellnut, who has good need of them. Rita Coppola and June Davis leave their paint brushes to Gloria Houde. Doesn’t Gloria paint a pretty picture? To Bob Gordon goes Jerry Kent’s pretty red oil truck. Sally Kane hands over her mischievousness and blue eyes to Irene Nocera. Don Phair and Clarence Spencer, our class women haters, pass on this noble trait to Norman Smith and Vincent Lambert. Pat Bredbury and Emily George leave some of their scrumptious clothes to Janet Smith. Janet will have to build an addition to her closet now. Arthur Carlson and Gardner Cook bequeath their talkativeness to Jimmy Greenler. Velrra Hinton leaves her great big eyes and her coy way of using them to Ann Doran. Ann will slay them now. Bill Driscoll passes on his amiability towards Miss Cook to Fred Torrisi. Looks like the beginning of another beautiful friendship. Pat Chadwick, Margie Mitchell, and Rose Lawlor leave their positions in Ptomaine Tavern, our cafeteria, to Alice Tardiff. It’s a big job for such a little girl. Arthur Terret and Bill Torrey leave their clarinet and trumpet, respectively, to Bob Jordan who still insists there are gremlins inside his jukeboxes. Joan Pitman, Elinor Gaudet, and Blanche Turner leave their petiteness to Dolores Legare. Dolores thanks our three tiny tots. Bill Gosselin and Oscar Soucy, our class heavy-weights, leave their excess muscles to Harold Dushame. With his previous acting experience and these new muscles, Harold will soon be Tarzan’s understudy. Shirley Kelly and Rita Nicetta leave their fluent French to Joan Littlefield. Joan considers our English language enough to confuse one with. Ed Hamel and Freddie White, who are strong believers in maintaining good conduct at all times, leave these high ideals to Leonard Foulds and Dave McAllister. Dick Carvell has disappeared because he has heard the sad news that Arthur Drummond is passing on to him his fast balls in baseball. Carol Berry and June Ingram willingly cut off and bestow upon Louise Lamprey a few miles of their homeward journey from school. Norman Campbell leaves his generous scoops of ice cream to Harold Allison. What would Herbert Hoover say? 31 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL Eleanor Finn leaves her studious ways and her knack for getting along with Miss Chapman to Warren Finn. This sounds fishy to us. Larry Walker and Carmelo Mangano leave their ability to maintain order over the fairer sex and McKee in eighteen to Arthur Lovejoy. Ethel Winning and Arlene Donnelly leave their curly hair to Virginia Robin¬ son. Virginia is going to look funny with a two-toned top. Eddie Pevine bequeaths to Richard Cunningham and Kenny Chadwick his swell car, black onyx ring, and sharp clothes. You can divide the spoils between you, boys. Shirley Pendlebury hands over to Mary Wentworth her skill at beating out some hot boogie. Now all Mary needs is a piano. After much persuasion, Charlie Walsh has finally decided to bestow upon John Perley and John Gile his bicycle. We want to know how two guys are going to get along on one bicycle. Claire Warwick leaves her two eventful driving lessons to Pat Moriarty. Pat hopes she’ll have a little more luck than poor Claire. Audrey Ferrin and Don Kimel are very tired, so they just leave in hopes that the class of ’47 will benefit by these worthy gifts. They are both sorry to inform you that no merchandise may be exchanged. Will drawn up by Audrey Ferrin and Donald Kimel CLASS BALLOT Best looking girl .

Bill Driscoll practiced fainting for a month and then forgot to faint the night of the play? girls wore boys’ shirts and bow ties? old Johnson had its face lifted? Norman kissed Maggie in the play? AT JOHNSON WE HAVE: A Cook but no butler A Gardner but no doorman Shottes but no slacks A Long but no short Bredbury and Pendlebury but no blueberries A Pevine but no grapevine A Miller but no flour A Kane but no crutch Two Finns but no fish A Dill but no pickle A Bottai but no cravat A Holder but no pot A Davis but no Furber A Phair but no circus A Torrey but no Whig A Winning but no loss A Spencer but no Morse 34 — THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL ’46 LIMERICKS by Alma Sanford and others There is a young fellow named Howard. Though small, he is never a coward. He’s cute, and he’s neat, And the girls think he’s sweet, But he loves it, this fellow named Howard. There is a young lady named Shirley Who doesn’t get up very early. She’s both smart and cute, And don’t give a hoot, If her hair isn’t naturally curly. I know a young fellow named Phil Whom I sometimes desire to kill. His brain is not hazy Though some say he’s lazy. That’s why I would like to kill Phil. There is a young lady named Beverly Who gets up at her Ma’s morning reveille. She’s a popular gal, And a regular pal. I guess that’s just why we like Beverly. I know a young fellow named Nick. Of girl friends he sure has his pick. He likes only one— Goes around with a gun, So the rest can’t get near him to kick. I know a young fellow named Souce Who chummed with a Frenchman named Goose. They lented on women, But Jan took Souce swimmin’, So Souce paid a dollar to Goose.— Alma Sanford Nicholas, Thomas and Phil Went for a ride down a hill. Tom went “no handsies”, While Nick went down “standsies”, And Phil went down in a spill.— Tom Giaquinta Rita and Mabel and Elsie Went for a ride in Chelsea, But alas and alack, They had to thumb back, ’Cause thay lost all their money in Chelsea. —Rita Coppola I know a young lady named Kay Who is lovely in every way. Of friends she has many, And I don’t know any Who don’t think that she is 0. K.— Mary Ness There once was a fellow named Goose Who always went hunting for moose, But his luck would run out, For Goose was no scout, So back he’d come, yelling, “The deuce!” —Phil Long ’46 JINGLES by Audrey F err in Joe Rand When the policeman walked in, He sure stole the show, But then that’s just natural, Because that’s our Joe. Barbara Cochrane A quiet girl, Who never gabs, For heaven’s sake, Don’t look at Babs. Emily George Roses may be red, Violets may be blue, Sugar may be sweet, But not half as sweet as you. Vincent Ippolito If you ever have a question, Then go look up Ippolito. If you find another Einstein, It’s just Ippy incognito. Shirley Kelly The fairest of all Is certainly Shirk Johnny’s sure lucky To have such a girl. Shirley Wentworth If you need someone to take a letter, Then there could be no one better. Shirley Wentworth—call her Speed! At shorthand she’s a whizz, indeed. Nick Evangelos For a president that’s tops with us, Of one we can be proud, For a perfect friend like Nicky, let’s Give three cheers long and loud. Arthur Terret We have a Benny Goodman, When Art Terret is around, For on the clarinet he takes Top honors, we have found. 35 THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL Ed Mooradkanian We kid him and we chide him, But Ed takes it all in fun. If you’re looking for a gentleman Then surely Ed’s the one. Sally Kane Sally is mischievous, With her sparkling eyes of blue. For someone who is loads of fun, We’ll always think of you. A1 McKee There’s such hilarity, If with him you might be. Don’t be a dope, it’s not Bob Hope, It’s only Chief McKee. Tony Laurenza Tony was a sailor, And like a sailor, went to sea, Then returned to good old Johnson, To teach us a thing or three. Phil Long When they invented the alarm clock They must have thought of Phil. We guess it’s lucky that they did, Or he’d be sleeping still. Velma Hinton Oh, Velma, where’d you get those eyes, And where’d you learn to use ’em? For when you turn them on poor Don, How could the guy refuse ’em? Bob Skinner When Skinner comes out with his pranks, Or slays us with a pun, Forgive us if we’re slow to laugh, Because that’s no joke, son! Elsie Miller For a true friend and a pretty one, We always look to El. She’s full of fun, and works so hard. In fact, she’s just plain swell. 36 JUNIOR CLASS SOPHOMORE CLASS JOURNAL” STAFF | u if i P dm FOOTBALL TEAM AND CHEERLEADERS THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL BOYS’ SPORTS The football season of 1945 was a very successful one. After a hard start the team snapped into old form, winning four games, losing four, and tying one. Our football team was never scored on more than twice in any game. The best game of the year was the Punchard game in which we were the underdogs. But once again Johnson took the “Punch” out of Punchard with a victory of 7 to 6. Our toughest game was with our other rival, Methuen, who defeated us on a wet and muddy field 13-7. This game really was a heart-breaker for the team. The team were awarded red and black jackets from the Eclectic Club, and gold footballs from the American Legion. The following senior boys were awarded sweaters: Skinner, Gosselin, Wilkinson, Soucy, Shottes, McKee, Evan- gelos, Giaquinta, Long, and Doherty. The team line-up was: le. Skinner c. Weigel re. McKee It. Gosselin rt. Shottes lg. Wilkinson (co-capt.) rg. Soucy Backs Evangelos (co-capt.)

Boys’ Baseball The baseball team looks fine and it is expected that it will finish at the top of the Merrimack Valley League. The team is lined up as follows: c. N. Hanson; p. J. Dolan, Phil Long, Art Drummond, and R. Shackleton; lb. B. Mitchell; 2b. E. Brown; 3b. N. Evan- gelos (capt.); ss. P. Long; If. Chief McKee; cf. Skinner; rf. How (Big Boy) Doherty. 43 BOYS’ BASKETBALL TEAM GIRLS’ BASKETBALL TEAM THE GOBBLER-1946 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS’ BASKETBALL The girls had a season with many mishaps. For the most part the opposition they met was too strong for them. Captain Bev Howard was high scorer for the girls, and all are being awarded gold basketballs for their good work.
