JOHNSON GH SCHOOL NORTH ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL Tune : “America the Beautiful” We bow before thee humbly now To give thee honor due, For thou hast been our guiding light These years of learning through. You taught us all to be good sports. To strive the best we can; Then in the larger school of life, We’ll be a help to man. With sorrow deep we part from thee Our Alma Mater dear, But in the many years to come We’ll feel thy influence near. O Johnson High, dear Johnson High The time has come to part But we will all remember thee With fondness in our hearts. Words by Janet Knightly 9 Dedication For his untiring assistance in all our projects and his unlimited patience with our many whims, we, the Class of 1949, are proud to dedicate our Gobbler to Mr. John Finneran, teacher and friend. o ALVAH G. HAYES Headmaster 4 JVIess ge to tike Class of 1949 A SHORT ' time ago a friend of mine, who was not connected with education, remarked that he considered teaching a field in which the rewards to the teacher were neither numerous nor large. At times this is a feeling which many teachers have, but more sober reflection brings to mind rewards of an in¬ tangible nature which few other professions offer. One of these is the privilege of association with young people. There is no better way of remaining young. There is no better way to retain one’s sense of humor. To be happy as a teacher one must have a keen interest in helping others. Please do not interpret this as meaning help only in connection with studies, although this is, of course, highly important. Of at least ecpial importance, how¬ ever, is that help which can be given in developing strength of character, respect for the rights of others, potential leadership ability and appreciation of our democracy which grants us freedoms, but which places on us certain responsibili¬ ties in our acceptance of those freedoms. When such desired outcomes can, at least in part, be traced to some suggestion or word of advice by the teacher, the reward is there for the teacher to know and see. It is true that such rewards do not buy bread, but they are gratifying to the soul. Again teachers are inspired by the reward which comes from assisting pupils to think in a logical and intelligent manner. Certainly today, in our confused and troubled world, straight thinking was never more seriously needed on the part of our citizens. Many of these rewards to the teacher do not become apparent until you have been out of school for some time. It is then that your training, or lack of train¬ ing, becomes evident. There are few things in life more satisfying to the teacher than the knowledge that he or she may have had some part in shaping an im¬ portant decision which you may make, or an important stand which you may take. As a class you have been wonderful. You have grown in the traits which I have mentioned and are a credit to your homes, your church and your school. Continue to grow, as our country is in need of the type of men and women which you are to become. Alvah G. Hayes, Principal 6 JACQUELINE C.

The chaos, destruction, “blood, sweat, and tears’’ of actual warfare are behind us, but is this peace? David Bernstein aptly calls it “.the Cold Peace,. . . . the not-war of the late 1940’s.” It is compounded of a series of stale¬ mates backed by the steely firmness of Russia and the United States. The two greatly divergent economic systems, American capitalism and Russian nationalistic socialism are not in any period of collapse. There has been no sharp and serious depression in America; she has even furthered her system by Marshall Plan aid. Russia’s gamble on a quick boom and bust in America has failed. The result — stalemate. The situation in Europe approaches a balance of power. Idle line between East and West runs clearly through Europe. Russia has been able to take over Czechoslovakia, but the non-Communist forces have won out in France and Italy. Only in Austria and Germany are there potential trouble spots, but these are subject to frontier revision. Again . . . stalemate. A similar situation exists in Asia. Russia has on her side Soviet Asia, northern Korea, and now China. But, unless we are criminally negligent, we have on our side southern Korea, Japan, the Philippines and southern Asia, including India and Turkey. It is apparent that the United States is not morally prepared to drop atomic bombs on Russia or she woidd have done so already. Within a few years, it is true, Russia will also have the Bomb, and there is a possibility that the Kremlin, lacking such scruples, will use it. This is possible, yes, but is it probable? In World War I the Germans experimented with poison gas, but by World .War II chemical warfare weapons were so highly developed that neither side ventured to use them. In the case of the Bomb, our use of it on japan may be comparable to the Germans’ experimentation with poison gas; and the Bomb is likely to join that little group of weapons so horrible, so uncontrollable, so unpredictable, that nobody will be ready to use them. So, we would appear to have a stalemate in weapons also. The myth of the unplanned incident has long since been exploded. There are, of course, trouble spots all over the world: Palestine, Berlin, Greece, southeast Asia, and more. These, although some are violent and vexing, have remained isolated, and their threat to world peace has been contained. Thus, there is no reason to believe these trouble spots will lead to an outbreak of worldwide total war. This is not a healthy peace, but it is far better than war — because, as long as the Cold Peace lasts, there is always the chance to build a warm peace. It is still perfectly possible to build a stronger edifice of world peace by continuing our vigilance and pressure. We must continue to reject the isolationist’s Utopia and step forward with the plan for a new, better One World. If a world government cannot include the whole world, then it can at least, under American initiative, be sovereign over so vast a part of the world the U. S. S. R. will not dare to chal¬ lenge it. At this point the Cold Peace will become warm, and w r e can then have more right to hope than at any previous time within the recollection of living men that there will be no war at all. JUSTINF. FITZGF.RAI.I) If) Salutatory fcssay An Eighteen Year Old’s Ideas on Democracy A S we, the high school graduates of nineteen forty-nine, go forth with the other graduates of this country, we are very fortunate to be going forth into a country governed by democracy — ruled by the people. It is a great responsibility, as well as a privilege, to be a member of this type of government. Have we got what it takes to withstand the devious assaults, both from within and outside our country, upon our cherished democracy? For it is upon our generation that the future welfare of this country rests. It is we graduates of the mid-twentieth century who will either achieve the lasting peace for which the world yearns, or will enter the holocaust of what might well be the last war of all. In order to meet this test, we must have a clear knowledge of what democracy means to us, and we must try to find the best way of making ourselves citizens worthy of living in a democracy. Education has long been one of the greatest pillars of the structure of a democracy. The more education we can get the better understanding we will have of our governmental ideals. Democracy succeeds in America because the American people are better educated for it than are any other people in the world. We are taught what constitutes a democracy, what it has to offer us, and why we should do our utmost to preserve it. We are taught that democracy is based on the ability of a cross-blen d of racial, religious and civic-minded people to live together in a peaceful manner. We learn that all men are created equal and are entitled to the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We know that democracy offers us equal opportunities, protection from harsh dictatorial rule, and above all, it offers us freedom — freedom of thought, free¬ dom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly. We have been educated to love these rights and privileges, and to uphold these ideals which are the fundamentals of our democracy. We agree that God has been good to us by enabling us to share in the fruits of this great democracy. But did you ever stop to realize that while we are privi¬ leged to enjoy these fruits of democracy, this privilege is accompanied by a very grave duty? We not only have a right to speak our mind about the running of our government, but we have a duty to do so. We not only have the right to vote for the citizens we consider worthy to fill the high positions of government, but we have a duty to see that the men most capable of upholding our ideals of gov¬ ernment receive the jobs of responsibility necessary in maintaining this govern¬ ment. The foundation has been laid. We have learned the theory of our government. It is now up to us to put it into practice. There are three aids which will help us in the decisions we must make concern¬ ing our government — our own common sense, the experience of others and the opinions and advice of those who know more than we do. First, stop and use your own common sense. Is democracy worth fighting for? Is this or that issue harmful to our ideals of government? Secondly, look at the plight of other countries who are not fortunate enough to be under a democratic government. Is their government benefiting their people better than ours? Then, listen to the advice of people who have had more education and more experience. There are, you know, many people who really do know more than an 17 eighteen year old. Weigh their opinions about the different issues which arise. Let their experience guide us, but here again we must use our own common sense and weed out the good from the bad. In summary, as we look into the future of our own lives and that of our coun¬ try, may we, who are the products of the greatest example of a democracy in the world, our public school system, realize the great privileges and rights which are our own because we live in a democracy. May we resolve to do our full share in solving the great problems that will confront us in the future, by intelligently and sincerely carrying out the duties that the enjoyment of the great privileges of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness place upon us. Mary C. Finn Our Inheritance O N a June evening thirty years ago, young men and women, the leaders of today, stood on this platform pondering over events, past and future. They were looking back over their childhood with longing eyes. Simultan¬ eously they were looking forward with anticipating minds to the veiled future. The greatest war of all times had just ended. Yet, already there was ample dis¬ agreement over international politics; there was considerable domestic grief; and war, that godless word which implies an infinite amount of injury, pain and death was already clouding the future. Their predecessors had left them an inheritance of debt and war. Are we, who are to receive diplomas this evening, going to bequeath to our descendants a war much more destructive than ever before thought humanly possible? For many people are striving to fix the guilt for our present chaos on something outside themselves, either poverty, power, or environment, anything but their own deficiencies. They would, however, find the solution to present problems if they would only heed the example of those few good citizens to whose devotion we now owe what bright gleams of hope are discernible in glowering clouds over the world today. These worthy citizens followed faithfully the ensu¬ ing three pursuits. The first is that they kept abreast of the current times. They read impartial reports on international and domestic affairs. If the matter under consideration was debatable, they read reliable accounts on all sides and decided for themselves as to what was right and wrong. They weren’t bullied into opinions by un¬ authorized or traitorous observers. The second is that they voted in all elections. Some of us seem to think that only the Presidential election is significant. Other elections concern only sena¬ tors, representatives, selectmen and the like. It only means the difference between a smooth and a rutty road, a beautiful school and an antiquated building, high taxes and low taxes, graft and utopia. Yet to some of us these things are of minor importance. We complain about the high cost of living and unemployment, and seem to get a million dollars’ worth of enjoyment from doing it. We would rather lament over state taxes than look up the platform of the man for whom we are about to cast a vote. We don’t know whether he advocates state taxes, uni¬ versal military training, isolationism or the removal of unions. We just haven’t the time to give to such matters. 1 he third is that after electing a man to office, these truly democratic men and women of whom I am speaking, continue to show their interest towards their nominee. They do not give this representative a totally free rein. If there is a bill up for consideration to send oil to Russia or tea to China just for the profit of a few influential men, they instantly take their pens and write their represen ta- 18 tive to oppose it. But these worthy people are few. The unfortunate official most often finds himself with five letters concerning the bill. He is no mind reader, and has no way of telling how his constituents want him to vote. He feels that the people of his district are indifferent, and thus he often votes so that he him¬ self profits. Even though we elect fine men into office, we may destroy their excel¬ lent traits through our neglect. A single democracy such as ours can’t prevent strife with other countries which are monarchal, dictatorial and fascist, yet if we make this country a superb exam¬ ple of a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people,” the common man of the world cannot help but desire a similar way of life. A universe entirely democratic would eliminate any one person from seizing power, and thus banish war. No man wants war, and if the common man ruled the whole world, we would have aeons of peace. Thus, as we take this last quick survey of the world before us on this gradua¬ tion night ere we launch ourselves into the battle itself, we can clearly see that we must observe three essential rules if we are to play our proper role in the part assigned us. We must first, keep abreast of the times; second, use our privilege of voting at all times; third, remain alert to how our representative acts. Today as never before, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” Let this present generation show to the world our strength by exerting it to its full extent. We shall pass on to our descendants an inheritance of which to be proud. F. Kay O’Keefe Class Oration We Build The Ladder By Which We Climb I T is the strongest desire and pride of every man to reach the peak of success in the work in which he finds most pleasure. Many are misled by the belief that they need not necessarily strive to attain this goal. However, “We Build the Ladder by Which We Climb,” and if it is not built strongly and carefully, it is most apt to collapse. Accomplishment of purpose is attained only step by step, and is a result of long tedious hours of labor. There are many who are capable of winning high stand¬ ings in their profession, but are discouraged because they lack the patience and ambition, the very qualities so necessary for success no matter what the voca¬ tion is. A combination of these qualities made Lincoln, a poor humble boy of unlet¬ tered ancestry living a backwoods life on a farm in Kentucky, the most admired and beloved man in America. Everyone knows of his childhood life in a log cabin with a dirt floor. He was self-educated, possessing only six books at the age of twenty-one. His honesty, loyalty and capability carried him from the work of a clerk in a store, to the practice of law and finally to the leadership of our country. We will never forget his untiring efforts to help humanity. But the unifying elements that fused these virtues into the pattern for success were patience and ambition. In the scientific field we find Thomas Edison, another boy who toiled vigor¬ ously and unceasingly for every step of achievement. He was a train-boy at twelve years of age. He sold newspapers, magazines and fruits, besides starting a laboratory at one end of a smoking car. At fifteen, Edison was already in charge of an office as a telegraph operator. Soon he was working most of the day on experiments. He spent much of his money on books and apparatus, while he was going about in shabby clothes. He used the money earned from some 19 invention for completing others, having fifty inventions in the making at one time. His imagination, optimism, strong self-confidence and, above all, his un¬ limited patience have distinguished him from other men. It is not only advantageous for us to be successful, but it is essential. 1 oo many of us sit back complacently and wait, not realizing the place in which we can accomplish most. Everybody should endeavor to do the best that lies within him. In that way we will all progress and be a benefit to mankind. In short, success depends primarily upon determination, assiduous labor, and patience. No one ever arrived at a goal without difficulty. “Easy come, easy go,” is a race-track truism that is frequently exemplified in every field of human endeavor. There is an old copy-book maxim that “You get out of life what you put into it.” Napoleon riding the whirlwind of revolution to the imperial majesty of France, Caesar climbing to the leadership of the great Roman Empire, Washing¬ ton emerging from the agony of war and enduring the assaults of political oppo¬ nents and finally winning first place in the hearts of all Americans for all time — all these men reached eminence and glory by building the ladder by which they climbed. Arthur Forgetta fltS§ History W E have now come to the end of our high school days. The many happy hours we have spent at Johnson are now turned into fond, imperishable memories. September, 1945, we entered the doors of Johnson High School as the conven¬ tional, timid and bewildered freshmen. Although this new life was confusing for awhile, we found it fascinating. It was hard for us to settle down to our studies amidst new surroundings, teachers, classmates, and customs, such as the changing of rooms. After finally settling down, we held our class election. Fred Soucy was elected president, with Marjorie Schofield and Mary Finn chosen vice- president and secretary-treasurer, respectively. Our first social function was Stunt Night, which was introduced for the first time in place of the Freshmen - Senior Dance. Although we didn’t win the prize for having the best stunt, the many freshmen present felt it was a great success. This was followed by many dances. But since dancing wasn’t very popular among the freshmen, the seniors held classes for us after school in the gym. Along with this, noon-time dancing was introduced as a form of recess activity. After the Christmas holidays, Miss Charlotte Howe left the faculty, being replaced by Mrs. Natalie Manson. Our first assembly was held soon after this, at which time we watched Chief Na-Da-Beh perform in true Indian fashion. From him we learned the secret of what makes canned corn beef so good. After this enjoyable assembly, we eagerly looked forward to many more. We returned in the fall as sophomores, feeling a little more sure of ourselves. We felt quite grown-up as we watched the new freshmen getting acquainted with their new school. Miss Constance Fitzgerald was the new member of the faculty. At our class election, we selected the same officers as in the previous year. Under the sponsorship of the Student Council, clubs were started early in February, meeting two periods every other week. There was a wide variety of clubs to choose from, with a majority of the students joining one of them. Sports proved to be very popular with our class, as they were in two following years. There were many members among the candidates for the baseball, football, and basketball teams. Near the close of our sophomore year, Career Day was held with over twenty-five speakers coming to speak on a wide variety of occupations and careers. 20 As we entered our junior year, we were very much aware of the fact that we were upper-classmen. We added two new members to our class this year, Dick Ganley and Dot Conte. At our election, Freddy and Margie were re-elected to their respective offices and Jack Kasheta became our new secretary-treasurer. This year we had two assemblies beside the usual Christmas assembly. The first was an interesting talk on the achievements and future of chemistry by Mrs. Aretta Watts. She showed us a bewildering display of products which were made in the Dupont Laboratory. At our second assembly, Mr. O’Day from the Registry of Motor Vehicles showed us a movie and spoke to us about a program of driver education in the schools. We regret that this wasn’t carried out here. The annual school play, “The Baby Sitter,” utilized the unique genius of many members of our class. This play enjoyed the traditional success of all our school plays. A school savings program was adopted in co-operation with the Andover Savings Bank. Deposits could be made by students in their home rooms every Tuesday. We proved to be thrifty students. This year badminton and ping- pong were added to the recess activities through the efforts of Mr. Hayes and the Student Council. This year one date stood out in our minds — June fourth. For the biggest event of the year, the hall was decorated in a rainbow of colors be¬ neath a starry sky. The beauty and chivalry of Johnson students added another successful Senior-Junior Prom to the long list of past glories. As our summer vacation came to a close, we returned to Johnson with the feel¬ ing all seniors have — happy, yet sad. Freddy and Margie were again re-elected to their respective positions, with Mary Finn returning to her role of secretary- treasurer. We welcomed Miss Henrietta Holz, Miss Ruth Ann Mooradkanian, Miss Jennie Marino, Mr. John Finneran and Mr. Clarence Mosher to the faculty. Roberta Willoughby, Joan Foerster and Jimmy Morin were new members of the senior class. This year the seniors adopted a sponsor system proposed by Miss Gillen to help the freshmen get adjusted to their new school life. A large crowd attended the football rally held the night before the Punchard game. This rally was sponsored by the Boosters’ Club in an effort to increase school spirit. At one of our assemblies Miss Myra Stillwell, Children’s Librarian in the public library, showed us a moving picture on the making of the Saturday Evening Post. On January twentieth we had an assembly, at which time we listened to the presi¬ dential inauguration. “A Mind of Her Own” was presented the first of April. This comedy was one of the best productions ever given at Johnson. The cast was made up of a majority of seniors. As we neared graduation, everything was just as confusing as when we were freshmen. Every study period was used to ex¬ change pictures, and every spare moment was fdled with thoughts and plans of the prom and graduation. Now our days at Johnson are at an end. But we take many fond memories with us as we proudly step out into the world to “build the ladder by which we climb.” Janet and Harold 21 Class Will W E, the Class of nineteen hundred and forty-nine, being mentally stable (though you never doubted that!), hereby bequeath and bestow the follow¬ ing gifts and abilities to our worthy Juniors.

Respectfully submitted by Vf.ra Sullivan Richard Dearden 21 Tike Proplkecy of 1949 I T’S June again, and in the quiet little town of North Andover it is just ten years since the class of ’49 bade fond farewell to Johnson High. As we amble toward Finneran’s Drug Store, whom should we see entering ahead of us but our world-famous Shakespearian actor Dick Ganley, accom¬ panied by his personel manager Earl Simon. We waited until they had ordered one of Bob Finneran’s super-tantalizing sundaes before gathering up enough courage to speak to our now famous classmate. He recognized us at once and immediately began telling us what his rest in our fair town had revealed. He mentioned he had stopped at one of Dave Hollins’ Service Stations. As he waited for Arnold Sarcione to change the oil, they talked of their high school days. While they talked, who should drive up in a sleek new Buick but Dave Hollins himself, and his assistant manager, Charlie Roebuck. Among others that he had seen in town were Mr. and Mrs. Joe Driscoll, (Joan Connors), who had recently taken over coaching activities at Johnson High School, and were turning out first rate teams. After a long and tedious training, Sheila Cronin and Pat Cole had become the new school nurses in town. Judy Chadwick was doing astounding work as music supervisor. Buster Dearden, Gilly Lundquist, and Jimmy Tamagnine had purchased Woody’s and were doing a great business. Their motto was, “God helps them who help themselves, and you’ll need it if we catch you.” The police force in town had been improved immensely since Dick Hilton and Fred Soucy became the new Co-Chiefs. At last the old town hasr some strict discipline. Jackie Adams and Joan Finn are pharmacists at Meagan’s Drug Store. Doc¬ tors only prescribe, but they say the secret is in the making. Bobbie Willoughby and Ruth Davis have reached stardom, in Hollywood as actress and concert pianist, respectively. We imagine the fan mail keeps their secretaries, Dot Dushame and Eunice Minzer, quite busy. " Fhe modern Luther Burbank of our day is none other than our own, Arthur Forgetta.

Mukve, W £® m $ FOOTBALL The Red and Black warriors of Johnson High compiled a comparatively good record of victories, if the average weight of the team compared with that of oppos¬ ing teams, is considered. Despite the lightness of the forward wall and backheld, they showed great determination, spirit, and teamwork in the games they played. The annual encounter, with neighboring Methuen on Columbus Day, proved to many followers and avid fans of the team that the Red and Black could beat teams much heavier, both in the line and backfield. However, Johnson lost a heartbreaker to Punchard when the former was defeated in the annual 1 urkey Day classic. Johnson’s football season closed with four wins and six defeats, the team total¬ ing 115 points to the opposition’s 139. Richard Mooradkanian Sports Reporter CHEERLEADERS 1 ' he cheerleaders added six new girls to their group this year, Grace Stewart, Barbara Watts, Kay O’Keefe, Bea McKinnon, Edith Massey, and Anne Whipple. The regulars were Joan Connors, Charlotte Killam, and Margie Schofield. Many new cheers were added to their repertoire, and much school spirit was raised by the efforts of the girls. A. W, GIRLS’ BASKETBALL The girls’ basketball team came up with five wins and five losses at the end of the season. Most of the girls graduate this year—our able captain Mar]. Schofield, Kay O’Keefe, Joan Connors, Joan Diamont, Grace Stewart, Justine Fitzgerald, Vera Sullivan, and Anne Whipple. Thanks are due to Bert Curry, manager, and appreciation to Miss Holz. All the luck in the world to the team of ’49-’50 ! Anne Whipple Sports Reporter BOYS’ BASKETBALL l he Red and Black cagers started their season with a thunderous roar when they mowed down their opposition in three consecutive games to the tune of 44-30, 49-19, and 42-16. But suddenly this streak ended, and the quintet didn’t seem to click as they began to lose heartbreakers by one or two points. However, the Red and Black cagers were able to win one more game before the final whistle by a 44-32 count. When the Lowell Suburban League season came to a close, the Red and Black had four wins and six defeats, having accumulated a total of 364 points as com¬ pared to the opposition’s 324. R. M. BASEBALL Coach George Lee is forming the 1949 Johnson baseball team around a nucleus of stars who played last year for the Red and Black. Coach Lee only lost his pitching and catching stalls through graduation last year, retaining the outfield and most of the infield. This year, as in all other years, the Red and Black is playing in the Lowell Suburban League. The veterans returning are: Captain Rivet, Bamford, J. Doherty, J. Driscoll, Greene, Hilton, Howard, Kasheta, Kennedy, Ness, T. Finn, Goodson, Long, Midgley, Zuill. R.
