Zhe gobbler 1951 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL NORTH ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS CLASS SONG Tune: Auld Lang Syne We’re leaving you, dear Johnson High, With many things unsaid; The time has come—we’ve crossed the bay, The ocean lies ahead. Now, with regrets, we bid farewell To teachers and to friends, Who planned our course and steered us well Around the rocky bends. And as we leave, oh Johnson High, Our flag on high unfurled, We’re confident that what you’ve taught Will .help us meet the world. Words by Mary Ann Maynard and Jane Broderick Dedication We, the Cl ass of 1951, dedicate our yearbook to Miss Clara Chapman whose gentle ways and kindly interest in all our projects have endeared her to all of us. ALVAH G. HAYES Headmaster Message to the Seniors Any message worthy of the name should provide some impetus for quiet reflection. During your years of schooling, you have been asked to remember many things. Many of them are probably now forgotten, but I am going to take the liberty of passing on to you some advice coming from the pen of the great Marshall Field, a genius in the field of retailing, who has long since passed to his reward, but whose memory is perpetuated through the world-famous department store which bears his name. This bit of advice is entitled “Twelve Things to Remember,” and includes: 1. The value of time 2. The success of perseverance 3. The pleasure of working 4. The dignity of simplicity 5. The worth of character 6. The power of kindness 7. The influence of example 8. The obligation of duty 9. The wisdom of economy 10. The virtue of patience 11. The improvement of talent 12. The joy of originating. A storehouse of joyful living lies within those twelve simple thoughts. A sermon could be developed around each one. I would suggest to each of you, that some¬ time during a period of reflection, you analyze yourself with respect to each of these “Twelve Things to Remember.” They represent the characteristics of many great men of the past. They will continue to be the characteristics of our great men of the future. ALVAH G. IIAYES, Principal The Faculty ALVAH G.

Music Prom Seventy-five couples attended the Junior- Senior Prom of 1950 and danced to the music of “Bartholomew and his Orchestra.” The Prom Committee, with the assistance of Miss Buckley of the faculty, transformed the hall into a colorful flower garden complete with wishing well and garden gate. Their hard work was well rewarded hy the attractiveness of the hall which contributed greatly to the success of the “Prom.” Play - 1950 The 1950 school play, Seventeenth Sum¬ mer, was a great success. The budding actors and actresses, under the capable direction of Miss Donlan, gave splendid performances both nights. CHARLOTTE H. ADLER “ Not that I love study less, bxit that I love fun more” Camera Club 3; Boosters’ Club 4. If you haven’t got to know Charlotte, you have overlooked a girl with a nice personality.

He excels in both and can be as¬ sured of a successful future. CLAIRE M. CONNELLY “ Her blue eyes sought the west afar.” Commercial Club 4 (Secretary- Treasurer).

DOLAN “Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow. ” Model Builders’ Club 1 (Vice- President); Hobby Club 2, 3; Boosters’ Club 4. All the witticisms and criticisms and teasing remarks that George often makes certainly enliven the halls of Johnson.

DUBOIS “On with the dance, let joy be unconfined.” Jerry, full of vim and vigor, is always ready to do a dance and have a good time. Best of luck in the future and remain as sweet as you are. BARBARA A. FLOCKERZI “Smile and the world smites with you.” Debating Club 1; Sewing Club 3, 4 (President); Journal 4. Barbara doesn’t say much, but that beautiful smile makes up for it.

FOSTER “For she is just the quiet kind, whose nature never varies.” Sub-Deb Club 1; Camera Club 2; Commercial Club 3, 4. With a smile for all and fun run¬ ning over, Shirley greets us.

He may not be one of the tallest members of our class, but he is one of the peppiest. RICHARD W. HARVEY “ He’s calm and reserved, that ' s as far as he goes. He seems to be quiet, but one never knows.” Camera Club 1; Baseball 2. This handsome fellow is widely known for his neat appearance.

Each one is an individual and de¬ serves our respect and love for its virtues, and our patience and tolerance for its faults. For books, all kinds of books, have much to offer us. Books are the vaults in which the wealth of the world is stored. They hold the accumulated thoughts of centuries, the stepping-stones to future achievement. Boger Bacon, that amazing man of the thirteenth century, left a wealth of information in his writing, including an explanation of convex and concave lenses and their possible application to reading and viewing distant objects which undoubtedly aided later stu¬ dents in devising glasses, telescopes and microscopes. William Harvey, the seventeenth century physician, left a remarkable treatise dealing with the circulation of blood in the human body which led to the discovery, thirty years later, of the system of capillaries uniting arteries and veins. It is in this way that the knowledge of the world is amassed. Books offer travel and adventure that we would never experience otherwise. Physical ability in any endeavor is no problem to the reader. A man who has never left the city may still feel the thrill of bronco-busting vicariously. Nor is money a necessary asset. The poorest man in the world may experience more through books than the multi-millionaire who spends hundreds of dollars in traveling; for a poor man with a lively imagination may catch more of the spirit of Paris through the descriptive genius of his author than the dull-witted spender who has no guide to show him beauty in a Paris street. No one need lack in friends or companionship if he is able to read, for lurking beneath the closed covers of books are a multitude of fascinating creatures whose only demand of the reader is that he give them a chance to show their worth. The reader may choose to spend a quiet hour with the dignified Jane Eyre, or he may join impish Jo March of “Little Women” on one of her impulsive escapades. He may follow with pity the sad boyhood experiences of Oliver Twist, or laugh heartily over the troubles of the adventurous Penrod. He may creep with The Deerslayer through the silence of the virgin forests of America, or flee hastily across the heather of Scotland with David Balfour. According to his mood he may choose his companions, assured that their adventures together will not lack in interest. Books are not bound by the years. In one turn of a page, the twentieth century reader can step back into the past, and stand, an amused spectator, watching the fine ladies and gentlemen of Louis the Fourteenth’s court step sedately through the intricate patterns of the minuet. Or, tiring of this amusement, he can leave them with¬ out formality, and instant ly install himself at a vantage point on the deck of an old schooner, where he can watch without any fear of bodily harm a desperate struggle for mastery of the ship. Books, the best kind of books, subtly point out to us a safe road to a happy and virtuous life. Who could read Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” without resolving, con¬ sciously or unconsciously, to avoid the horrible fate to which “unbounded ambition” led Macbeth? Or who could follow the cunning manoeuvers of Becky Sharp in “Vanity Fair,” and meditate on the hopeless ruin to which she finally came, without vowing to be fair and honest in all one’s dealings? And how far books can go toward reforming unfair practices of society when their message is clothed in the attractive garb of fiction! Dickens was a master in this way, with his ability to create situations which at first seemed hilariously funny, but after reflexion showed some very tragic lapse of public morals. In this clever way he exposed the dreadful conditions of child labor in England, the harsh treatment in Eng¬ lish schools, the miserable lives of children in orphanages, and many other equally bad conditions. 115 Of course, the Bible is the most remarkable of all books. It contains prose that is singular in its calm beauty, poetry that has been unsurpassed in the history of the world. It teaches with a quiet simplicity that assures the reader, " This is the truth.” Yes, books have much to offer us. To the student, a library is a garden of information from which he may choose the fruit which seems most tempting to him. Francis Bacon once said, " Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.” The groping student tastes a great many books—books which deal with every phase of life; he swallows a smaller group—the books that he studies in school, and from the books he has tasted and the books he has swallowed he gradually singles out the few that he will chew and digest. Books are necessary, not only to students but to everyone in the world. They provide hours of enjoyment, escape from the reality of life, information which makes the world seem more interesting, and inspiration when times are hard. In the words of Emilie Poulson, " Books are keys to wisdom’s treasure; Books are gates to lands of pleasure; Books are paths that upward lead; Books are friends. Come, let us read.” Marjorie A. Terret Salutatory WHAT MAKES THE TRUE AMERICAN? In these troubled times we are all very proud to call ourselves Americans, citizens of the greatest nation on earth. This title carries with it a sense of assurance and strength in a war-ravaged world where, in the last years, few people have been able to feel any confidence at all. Yes, it is a wonderful thing to be able to say, " I am an American,” and thus to link oneself with such a democratic, peace-loving, and yet powerful country such as our own. But, actually, do we ever stop to think exactly what kind of person is worthy of that cherished title in its true sense? Although many citizens fully enjoy all the rich benefits that it offers, how many of us honestly shoulder our share of its very heavy responsibility? Each one of us, down deep in our hearts, know that many times in our life we have very gravely shirked our duties as United States citizens. Sometimes it seems of so little importance to go out and cast a single ballot, especially if it is cold or rainy. And yet, if those who feel this way would only realize that in casting that single ballot they are making use of a very wonderful privilege, one that few people enjoy, and one that many have died for, perhaps they would make more of an effort. Although very few of us really measure up to the title " American citizen” in its true meaning, unfortunately there are many people in this country who attach a totally different meaning to it. These people insist that to be a true American, one must be of a certain race, creed, or color. Also, there are those who proudly claim this title simply because they can positively trace their family back to the earliest days of our country, even, in some cases as far back as the Pilgrims on the Mayflower. f 16 Is thi s the right way to go about judging anyone? It is certainly no way to judge an American, says our Constitution! Our entire system and idea of government is based on the worth and dignity of an individual as a person! It is a very sad thing that in a democracy, where equal rights are granted all, so much intolerance should flourish. We must be made, if necessary, to realize that it is not who we are, but what we do and how faithfully we live up to our duties and responsibility that really determines which of us are true Americans. I would like to tell very briefly about someone who, in my opinion, is an ex¬ cellent example of Americanism at its very best. This man is the widely known states¬ man, Dr. Ralph Bunche, a prominent member of the United Nations and one of the world’s leading scholars in the field of race relations. Dr. Bunche is the grandson of an American slave and he also has some American-Indian blood. Although at a great dis¬ advantage, simply because he was a Negro, he rose magnificently to meet this challenge and to force the world to recognize him for what he is, a brilliant scholar and statesman. It couldn’t have been an easy fight, for many doors were politely but firmly closed in earlier years to the eager, ambitious, hard-working young Negro. His career itself has been on a steady upswing since the day when he gradu¬ ated with highest honors from college. He was the first Negro to hold a really important job with the State Department. After receiving countless awards down through the years, Dr. Bunche joined the U. N. where he indeed has written a brilliant page in its history. Recently his career was crowned when he received the Nobel Peace Prize. Here indeed is a true American who has given a great deal to his country. Of course, most of us are not able to contribute as much to the country as Dr. Bunche has, and actually we need not, to be good Americans. However, each and every one can ask himself these questions, “Am I earnestly trying in every way to be a good citizen, or instead am I taking the easy way out? Am I taking the precious free¬ doms and privileges I possess for granted? Do I even unconsciously tend to discriminate against certain people who are of a different race or religion than I am? If you are guilty of any one of these things, it is entirely up to you to conquer them, and be really worthy of that proud title, American citizen. Margaret Willett Class Essay SHALL WE SURVIVE? While we Americans have been absorbed in our own problems, our worries over the Korean war and the threat of Communism, we have neglected to keep a tight rein on our government and its operation. There are many evidences of corrupt forces operating within our government. The recent senate-crime investigations, for example, brought to light the decay that has crept into our nation and threatened our society. Scandal in government can be traced to the Romans. The great Roman Empire was constantly threatened, as we are, by external forces and survived them all. No, mighty Rome wasn’t crushed by attacks from foreign powers—the Roman Empire crumbled from the corrosion of its own internal decay and corruption. Is that what our great country is facing? We must realize that we can survive in the face of inter¬ national disaster, but cannot survive if our democratic principles and moral standards, decline. Let us examine the causes of this corrupton. When our country was first taking roots, there was too great an emphasis on the material aspects of life, a phe¬ nomenon quite common in a pioneering country like our own where a young and vigorous people were filling a virgin continent, hewing down the forests, breaking the plains and, in general, developing the physical resources. { 17 This materialistic feeling was aggravated by the shock and dislocation of two World Wars within one short lifetime. There was a moral lethargy produced by the drain of two world-wide conflicts upon our energies, resources, and emotions. In the next place, the underworld learned how to organize in prohibition days, and a citizenry that was not in sympathy with the Prohibition Act looked on with humor¬ ous unconcern at the orgy of lawlessness, and even grew used to it. Then when prohibition passed away, organized crime, proud and prosperous now, not only tolerated but even accepted by the " better elements” of the country, turned its organization to other sources of easy money. Betting took on the magnitude of a national industry, branched out into allied fields of vice, corrupted the law enforcement agencies, and sent its cancerous roots far deeper into the body politic than an almost fatally good-natured public realized. Then came the greatest lesson in civics that this grand country of ours ever got. The Kefauver Committee turned up sensation after sensation. And at last the country is informed and aroused. What can be done to remedy this situation? There must be a complete and continuous knowledge of the conditions and a reawakening of moral sentiments. This is the joint responsibility of church, home, school and any mode of communication such as press, radio and television. There must be a re-dedication of the nation to the old American slogan " Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” In the eighteenth century, England was eaten with corruption under the reign of Walpole. She pulled herself out of that slough. And what she had done we Americans certainly can do. This vigilance will take, among other forms, the form of voting at every elec¬ tion, voting for the best man regardless of party designation, and, above all, removing promptly any official whose actions show a neglect of or contempt for the common good. Briefly, we are in a period of scandalous corruption because we didn’t care enough about how our government was being run in the first place. Too long have we Americans expected some political magician to waft our troubles away with the flick of a wand. Too long have we placed a childish trust in the mere politician and his theo¬ retical patriotism. It was not this spirit that made this country blossom and bud like the rose. It was not this spirit that struck for independence. It was not this spirit that pro¬ duced our constitution, characterized by the great Lord Acton as " the greatest article of government ever struck off by the hand of mortal man.” We need to get back to the old American idea that that government is best which is most watched. But we our¬ selves, individually, must do the watching. " We are the captains of our fate We are the masters of our souls.” Barbara Watts 08 Class Oration “WE HAVE CROSSED THE BAY, THE OCEAN LIES AHEAD” As we come to the point in our lives where we have crossed the bay of adoles¬ cence and childhood and we look out on the ocean of life, we pause and reflect upon the past years. In all our years on the bay of childhood, we have had little or no responsibili¬ ties to deter us from our course. Our meals, clothing and shelter were carefully planned for us by our parents. Our schooling for the first twelve grades was planned for us by capable and willing teachers. Our parents very carefully planned our home life for us so that there would not be any hardship on our part. In school, our studies were care¬ fully planned so that they were well-rounded and would insure us of being well-balanced individuals. Our burdens, both at home and at school, were carefully adjusted so that they were not really burdens at all, but rather, pleasurable tasks. Our parents and teachers planned these burdens to fit our capacities, giving more to those who could stand more and lessening the load on those who weren’t able to stand up under it. Now we have crossed the bay. The protecting lulls of our childhood fade away, and the powerful breezes from the high seas whip the sails of our untried craft. The pull of the mighty tides that have surged in from the depths of the ocean rock the decks beneath us. An indescribable thrill, compounded of terror and eagerness to test the great ocean, runs through our frames. Ahead of us, on the ocean, lie the storms of temptation, bewilderment, and discouragement, waiting eagerly to pound upon us unexpectedly. It is only through skillful navigation on our part that we can ride out these storms, for no longer do we have the protecting bay; we are on the ocean, fighting these storms alone. Also on this great ocean of life there are other dangers: the danger of losing our course through carelessness and indifference, the dangers of the sunken reefs of preju¬ dice waiting to rip the planks from beneath us, the danger of being ship-wrecked on the rocks of despair and hopelessness. As we run the gauntlet of these storms and dangers on the open seas, we have the feeling of knowing that a rich reward lies in wait for us, the reward of coming into port. We know that there is but one way to collect this reward, and that is to exercise the skills taught us while we were still in the protection of the friendly bay. Anthony Galvagna { 19 } . ? so -- . CLASS On a bright September morning, a group of timid freshmen noisily took their places in Stevens Hall. Mr. Hayes broke the ice and introduced us to our new Alina Mater. Then we were on our own. It was hard at first, getting acquainted with all our new teachers and knowing which room was which; more than one of us walked into a senior class, much to our embarrassment and their great amusement. We added a touch of “Americanism” to school by electing our first class officers: Tony Galvagna, Jane Broderick and Ellen Driscoll filled the positions very capably as president, vice-president and secretary-treasurer, respectively. As another new measure “Bank Day” was started, so the pupils would develop responsible qualities and retain them as citizens. A host of kind teachers helped us along that year. Miss Pierce introduced us to Shakespeare—“Et tu Brute!” Miss Fitzgerald will ' song be remembered for the walks she took with her gym divisions. All of us came back from most of them with our hands filled with wild flowers for Miss Chapman and her flower list. Latin, civics, math, and all the other subjects took on new aspects as we plunged ahead. A new student came to us from Stoneham—guess who? Eddie Saul of course, who continued to brighten our ranks with his many quips. Bemember “I’m glad”? Our first assembly was given by Mrs. Aretta Watts (no relation to Babs), who gave an interesting and instructive program on the rising field of plastics. Of course you remember the dance instructions we had every Thursday. Oh—our toes!! But all of us certainly enjoyed our dances—we really were so-oo graceful. The days swiftly passed; fall faded into winter, then winter into spring, then the “last” day and oh, joy of joys, “no more school.” It seemed that the summer days fled with exceeding rapidity, and again we were students. This year wqs different though—a little older and a little wiser were we sophomores. There was a big faculty turnover this year: Miss Holz came to replace Miss Fitzgerald; Miss Mooradkanian took over Miss Pierce’s position; the proof of the many geometric theorems was taken over by Mr. Finneran and Miss Bascom left for a new position; Mr. Mosher filled the position left by Miss James and Miss Marino took Miss Murphy’s place in managing the caf. This was the year that some of the senior girls attempted to have a driver- education course in our curriculum. Mr. Fanning and Mr. O’Day, who came from the Registry of Motor Vehicles, showed an interesting film on “Safe Driving.” All of us appreciated and enjoyed this very much but, unfortunately nothing came of it. The Student Council inaugurated plans for recess activities. This was an excellent achievement for S.C.;it lias helped brighten recess, and make it more enjoyable. This year, Mike Schiepers was president of the class. Jane Broderick and Ellen Driscoll were re-elected to their former positions. The school assembled to hear Mr. Truman take the presidential oath of office on January 2. A month later we viewed a marionette show given by Mrs. Dorothy Rankin and sponsored by the Art Club. The days passed so much more rapidly than our freshman year; this time we didn’t want our vacation—well, for the first few weeks it was fun, but after that we were longing for school. We certainly missed it. We returned to school that September as upperclassmen—for this was our junior year. Our officers for the year were Paul Driscoll, president; Jane Broderick, vice-president; and Joan Nery, secretary-treasurer. After much competition and heated controversy, class rings were selected, much to the chagrin of the boys, who were more impressed by the “flashy” ones, while HISTORY the girls preferred the more conservative. After receiving them, every one was satisfied. The opening of school brought a new face to the faculty. Mr. Thomson took Miss Callanan’s place. This was the first year that the “Patch Test” was given; everyone willingly co-operated. The test proved very worthwhile—no one was found to have TB. It was just before midyear when Mr. Hayes called an assembly and in¬ formed us that because of the high scholastic standing of the school, we had become eligible for membership in the National Honor Society. At the next assembly, members were installed and the Society’s objectives were set forth. Miss I. E. Cook was ap¬ pointed as advisor. We had a great many interesting and full assemblies during the year. Among them was a talk by Chief Needahbaheh on Indian customs and head-dress. Pie also gave a very sk lied exhibition of casting, both fly and bait. Another interesting assembly was General Motors’ “Previews of Progress”, given by Mr. Robert Hastings and Mr. Richard Hanson. The entire student body was amazed at the intricate and varied feats of modern science that were displayed before our eyes, such as the making of synthetic rubber, broadcasting on a beam of light, frying eggs on a cold stove and breaking a glass by high-frequency sound waves. The dismissal bell went unnoticed as the men con¬ tinued their exhibition. Air. F. Bastian, of the Glennie Milk Co., gave a talk on the processing and bottling of milk. He also made it possible for us to make a tour of the new plant. Now it’s a pleasure to drink milk! Barbara Watts was chosen Junior Class Marshal as graduation time for the class of ’50 was nearing. As quickly as one can imagine, our junior year drew to a close and we adjourned until next September. Now, as seniors, we cast a reviewing eye on the fleet years that have gone be¬ fore us and wonder how three years could have passed so quickly. But then we turn in anticipation and look to a year which is destined to be full of events which will be remem¬ bered for a long time. Paul Driscoll was re-elected president; Bob Stewart became vice- president and Joan Nery returned a;s secretary-treasurer. During the year, a menagerie of animals appeared at J.H.S. A skunk fell into a pit on the side of the building—confusion reigned. With the aid of a wooden plank the skunk was released from captivity. It was hardly a week after that another animal made its way into the building. This time the animal, a bat, interrupted an S.S.S. class in the hall. It was quite a while before the nocturnal creature departed. Thomas Spedding proved to be the hero of the day, as he captured the fluttering creature in a wastepaper basket. In the race for our school representative for Good Government Day, which was to be held in Boston, Bob Stewart was elected as our candidate. A visit which will long be remembered by some was the trip taken by a group of S.S.S. st udents to the Ford plant in Somerville. As June approaches, the old flame, school, which we took so much for granted as underclassmen, appears more stately and grand with every second that ticks by. The prom, the class picnic and those last flurried days of school will be remembered with much feeling. _ And now we think back four years—when we were freshmen, when Air. Hayes stood before us and told us that in only a short time he would again stand before us—at graduation—now. In passing we remain, Joan and Freddy CLASS We, the graduating class of 1951, being of sound mind (?) and body do hereby bequeath to the undersigned the following: To Mr. Hayes and our teachers we leave our thanks and gratitude for their untiring efforts to get us through in four years. To the Freshman and Sophomores we leave our understanding and sympathy. Upon Walt Crabtree, Mike Scheipers bestows the honor of bringing up the rear in laps around the football field. Peg Willett leaves her ladylike manners to Peg Greenfield. Tony Galvagna leaves his seven honors to anyone who is willing to work as hard as he did to get them. Joyce Gillespie wills to Elbe Green one well-thumbed D. A. notebook. You ought to get nothing but A’s, Ellie. Addy Marrs — after some coaxing — leaves her friendly ways to Betty Duncan. J. H. boys, beware! Barb Deighan leaves her fine acting ability to Dotty Love. See you on Broadway, Dotty. Boger Camf leaves his tall tales to Forry Smith and Don Thomson. From what I hear these boys do all right in telling tall tales now. Claire Chamberlin is the happy recipient of Chari Adler’s cute smile. Buth Morin wills to Carry Dushame all the fun she had at Johnson. P.S.—This includes Boom 8, Carry! To Bob Thomson goes Paul Taylor’s fine acting ability. Dale Doherty leaves his graduation diploma to his brother Bob. Take good care of it Bob; it took him a good many years to get it. Helen Mandry leaves her fine taste and appreciation for work well done to Mary Hamel and Amy Wilton. June Stead leaves to Jane Morse her very feminine hands. Treat them nicely, Janie; they’re an asset. Alan Bodger leaves to Herby Wood and Don DeAdder his good-natured ways. Nancy Hamilton leaves to Joyce Hamilton all the love that sisters have for each other. The exact amount goes unrecorded since it depends upon the situation. Ellen Driscoll wills to Betty Corcoran memories of the 1950 football season, better known as the swap. Tommy Spedding leaves his favorite subject, girls, to Joe Cushing and Dave Janus. I hope you two aren’t as bashful as Tom. Jean Calder leaves her ability to get along with the male members of the faculty to Mary Long. To Diana Reach, Camy Cristaldi leaves her creamy complexion. George Dolan leaves his argumentative ways and terrific temper to the Junior Class. Divide it evenly; there’s enough for everybody. Noreen Curley and Alsine Klufts leave Virginia Verda and Cynthia Cousins all the fun they had in chorus. If you girls have half as much, I’m sure you’ll enjoy your¬ selves. Gerry Dubois leaves to Maureen Hogan her soft, but contagious laughter. The Banks twins (Dick and Bob), leave their attitude of brotherly love to the Sjostrom twins (Bruce and Eric). At least the Banks don’t throw baseball bats at each other. Betty Weingart wills a few inches of her height to Eunice Wilcox. Now, let those guards try to stop your shots. Chari Mattheson leaves her position as Jottings editor to “Dutchie” Ferrigno. This is apt, since “Dutchie” usually got the news before Chari! Bob Dill bestows upon Dick Brown and Johnny Belyea his quiet ways. To I rene Holdsworth, Flo Maude leaves her red hair. Pauline Boeglin leaves Madelyn McCoy all the fun she had at Plum Island. Bobbie is qualified to write a book on her own experiences there. WILL Bob Cole is set to knock ’em over with the winning smile left him by Jay Stewart. Barb Flockerzi leaves her quiet ways to Mary Valcourt and Flo Towne. Joan Nery leaves to Margie Blodgett her tortoise-shell rimmed glasses. Also a book entitled “How to Appear Sophisticated in Specs.” Dick Hanson, to his buddy Jack Sheehy, wills his love for school and his good record of attendance. Ed Finn receives Norm Heaton’s ability to get along with the teachers. Doris Jones wills to Mildred Flanagan her love for dancing. See you at the Commodore, Millie. Martha Seymour leaves her friendly personality to Gioia Giribaldi. Hope you make as many friends with it as Martha did. Jack Pearl leaves his gentleman-like manners to Dan Forgetta. Margie Terret, a girl of few words, leaves to Pat Smith her well-observed rule “Silence is Golden.” Pat still feels rules were made to be broken. Noranne Maho. ey wills to Joan Kilton her athletic ability. They won’t be able to beat the Community Center now! Bay Gile endows Milton Long and Joe McLaughlin with his hurried manner. Barb Watts leaves Marion Bamford her “Class Beauty” title. Jane Broderick wills her nonchalant attitude to Joanne McAloon and Chris Kane. Believe me, girls, there is enough for both of you. Ann Gioco wills to Arlene George all her beautiful clothes. Arlene has to build a third closet now. Albin Seyfferth leaves his nice clothes and neat appearance to Jack Haigh. Margie Kleiner leaves special instructions on how to treat a camp counselor to Mary Walsh. Think you need them, Mary? Jack Zuill, star southpaw, leaves his talented pitching arm to another southpaw, Jim McMurray. Mary Boyle gladly cuts off and wills half of her walk to school to Evie Stone. Better plan to get up a little earlier now, Evie. Paul Driscoll leaves his skill of leading a football team to victory to George Knightly and Jack Shottes. Ann Hickey wills her unfailing devotion to homework to Dot Detora. Claire Connelly and Shirl Foster leave two well-worn typewriters to Laura Licciardello and Lorraine Sabin. I think there is enough for both of you girls. Eddy Saul leaves his knowledge of Geometry to Bob Lundquist. You should have left him your book too, Eddie. Tisha Maynard wills the mischievous twinkle in her left eye to Barb Saul. Oh boy! What a knock out! Gerry Gravel bestows a few inches of his height to Nick Cardwell and Bill Enaire. Think you could use it, boys? Lorraine Kelgin wills to Fay Belanger all the laughs she had in S. S. S. 4-1. Does the mark go with it, Loraine? Fred Marland leaves his knowledge of all sports, plus his ability to help Mr. Lee coach, to Doug Alexander. Dick Harvey leaves his Packard to Dana Freeman. Marilyn Zemba is tickled at the thought of receiving a few of the many letters Kay Bose wrote. I hope Kay will part with them. Walter Lumb leaves his many words and opinions in class discussions to Jimmy Mac- Cannell. George Schofield is the lucky recipient of Bob Snell’s good looks. Mary Gucciardi leaves her well-guarded formula on how to please teachers to Jane Doran and Joan Stoessel. Think you girls can use it? So we lower the lid of the casket and bury the class of ’51. Now nothing remains except— Evie and Bob CLASS Imagine our delight, one warm June evening in 1965, when George Dolan, M. C. for the Tele and Tell giveaway show, called and asked us the big question. Before we knew what was happening, we had won a round-the-world cruise! We lost no time in boarding a plane for New York, the starting point of our journey. On the way, we couldn’t resist stopping at North Andover, our old home town. As we landed at the North Andover airport, we spied Bob Banks, the ad¬ ministrator leaving his office. While Bob was showing us around the airport, we were joined by Camy Cristaldi, his private secretary. They brought us to the office of Dick Harvey, world-famous meteorologist, who was about to give his nightly weather forecast on T. V. Dick told us that if we wanted to get to Main Street, we’d have to take one of Taylor and Rodger’s aerial taxis. We dually located one, and found to our astonishment that it was being piloted by Ruth Morin and Claire Connelly. The girls flew us to Gravel Manor, a very high-class hotel, operated by G. G. Gravel. Gerry told Richie Hanson, captain of the bell boys, to see that we were well taken care of. No sooner were we settled, when Gerry Dubois, the switchboard operator, called to tell us that Mr. Gravel was waiting to take us to the new Alvah G. Hayes High School, to see the senior graduation. On the way to the school, Gerald explained that Tony Galvagna was prin¬ cipal, and ruled the pupils with an iron hand. Mary Boyle was teaching English, and Jay Stewart was running the French department. We slipped into the spacious auditorium just in time to see Jack Pearl, mayor of the now busy city of Boxford, present the diplomas. Everyone cheered loudly when school committeeman Dale Doherty rose to present awards to the outstanding athletes. Mr. Doherty introduced Joan Nery, guest speaker from M.I.T., who addressed a few well-chosen words to the graduates. Next day, although we hated to leave North Andover, we realized that we had to be getting on to New York. To our despair, we found that all planes had been grounded because of high winds. Fortunately, as we were standing in front of the hotel, pondering over our dilemma, Eddie Saul came along in a shining green truck. By a lucky coincidence we found that he was going to New York to deliver an order of sun¬ glasses from Pauline Boeglin’s sunglass factory. On the way, Eddie told us that he planned to visit Radio City since Dawn Tompkins and Charlotte Mattheson were danc¬ ing with the Rockettes. We were all hungry, so we stopped at an eating place, “Addie’s Inn,” run by Addie Marrs. Margie Kleiner, the receptionist, showed us to a table, and Dolly Cousins came to take our orders. When Eddie finally left us in New York City, we hailed a cab and found none other than Noranne Mahoney behind the wheel. Noranne became so excited at seeing us again that she unconsciously started speeding. Immediately a mounted police¬ man galloped after us. Luckily it was Ray Gile, and when he learned the cause of Noranne’s speed, lie let us go on. While in New York, we attended a performance of the ballet, starring Alsine KI lifts. We also went to watch the T.V. show, ‘‘The Loves of Larry,” starring Barbara Flockerzi, Shirley Foster, Kay Lynch, and Betty Weingart, written by Florence Maude. Finally we went down to the harbor, and boarded the cruise boat. We were thrilled to find that our boat was captained by Dick Banks. He told us that Charlotte Adler, now a famous Powers Model, was on board. We hunted up Charlotte and spent the time talking over old times until the Steward, Walter Lumb, announced dinner. The dinner was delicious; it had a unique flavoring that could have come from either accident or skill. Suddenly we heard a familiar voice coming from the galley, and leaving the table quite rudely, we rushed there only to find our old friend, Fred Marland, mixing a chocolate cake. The voyage was uneventful, until one day when a sailor, whom we later recognized as Norman Heaton, spied a raft with five people on it. It turned out to be Tommy Spedding, Ellen Driscoll, Doris Jones, June Stead, and Joyce Gillespie. It PROPHECY seems that Tommy, a rich playboy, had taken the girls for a sail, when a storm had blown them out to sea. The sailboat had capsized, but luckily Tommy had had a rubber life raft on board. When we rescued them, we found that the girls had been chosen the top secretaries of the year, and that part of the prize had been a week at Tommy’s estate. At last we landed at Normandy, and while viewing the quaint fishing villages, we met Barbara Deighan who was painting a water-front scene. We took a scenic tour up the Seine to gay Paris, where we attended a showing of Robert Stewart’s latest hat creations. We recognized Jane Broderick as one of his charming models. Returning to the boat, we traveled down the coast to Spain. Following the custom of all tourists in Spain, we went to the arena to see a bullfight. The champion of all bull-throwers, Don Roberto Snell, was due to meet the most ferocious of bulls. Just before the event, a lovely senorita stood up in her box and tossed him a rose. To our astonishment, we recognized her as Ann Gioco. While touring Rome, our next stop, we met Mary Gucciardi, who told us that she was acting as agent for Ann Hickey and Roger Camf. Ann and Roger were touring Europe, giving performances. They had won wide acclaim as the greatest violin and piano team of the century. Back on the boat, we went to Cairo, Egypt, to take on provisions. Taking advantage of our short stop, we were wandering through the crowded streets, when Paul Driscoll came galloping after us on a camel. Paul had become a missionary, and after spending years among the natives, he was happy to see faces from home. Our westward journey brought us to China, land of mystery and intrigue, where we called on Peggy Willett, lady ambassador to China from the U. S. Peggy told us that our friend, Margie Terret, a world-renowned authoress of mystery stories, was in China gathering local color for her latest book, “The Case of the Careless Coolie.’’ Leaving Peggy, we traveled to the land down under, Australia. We had arranged to make a special stop here to visit Evelyn Roche’s famous kangaroo ranch. We were just in time to watch Evelyn teaching them to play basketball. She told us that she was expecting Kay Rose, United States roller derby star, who was coming to help her teach them to roller skate. In Australia, we also met Bob Dill, studying Australian methods of farming. After visiting several South Sea islands, we landed in Hawaii, the last stop before home. While we were enjoying the sunshine at Waikiki Beach, and drinking Hawaiian sodas (which couldn’t compare with the ones that Noreen Curley made in her restaurant in Lawrence), we met Jean Calder, and her confidential secretary, Helen Mandry. Jean was vacationing after a trying season of singing at the “Met.” She confided that she had often seen Barbara Watts searching the beach. It seems that Barbara had never given up the hope of some day finding a fortune in ambergris. We found a newspaper from home, and read that Albin Seyfferth was direct¬ ing a big movie in Hollywood, starring Martha Seymour, cowgirl singing sensation. Martha’s secretary, Lorraine Kelgin, was kept busy answering fan mail, and Nancy Hamilton, successor to Hedda Hopper, had predicted that Martha would win an Oscar for her performance in Albin’s latest picture, “Two-Gun Theresa.” Although we enjoyed the cruise, it felt good to be back in the U. S., and to be just in time to watch Jack Zuill pitch in the world series. Respectfully, Tisha and Mike 1 . Tony Galvagna 10 . Noranne Mahoney 19 . Ellen Driscoll 2 . Barbara Anne Watts 11 .

OUR TURKEY TAKES We have a young lady named Joan, Of French rules she speaks with a groan. But ask her to tell The length of line “1,” And then hear the change in her tone. Marjorie Terret We have a young lad called Fred Who thinks he is really well read. When it comes to discussion You can bet he will rush in And amaze you with what’s in his head. Barbara Watts Oh, I know a young girl named Tisli, Some think that she’s quite a dish, With her long, blond tresses And the cutest of dresses We’re all very fond of our Tish. Clarence Scheipers When Barbara gets ready to draw, Her fingers she’s tempted to gnaw, For her posters will be Where folks all can see, And must be without a ny flaw. Marjorie Terret There was a young girl named Alsine Who took lessons to drive a machine. She rolled down a hill Which brought a big bill For damages to the machine. Alsine Klufts We have a young girl we call Joan Who over French lessons would moan. Though she felt no wrath Against physics and math, Away from the French Class she’d roam. Barbara Watts Oh, there’s a young fellow named Jack, Of looks he has surely no lack. The girls flirt and they smile, But it takes quite a while, To get a response out of Jack. Mary Ann Maynard 1 once knew a girl name of Kate, Who for every appointment was late. Now needless to say, This never does pay, For now, with the boys, she won’t rate! Margaret Willett We have here a little old place It’s so small that it’s just a disgrace. But nevertheless, We study our best In “fifteen,” that frigid old place. Ann Hickey Oh, cars are no problem to Zuill, So he brought one each week-day to school. Up Main Street he’d ride, And the people inside Would hang on and try to keep cool. Mary Ann Maynard There was in our class a young lad, Who we all agreed was quite mad. He’d work and he’d study, ’Till his brain was quite muddy, But in June he was termed highest grad! Jane Broderick There was a young athlete named Paul, Who played quite a fine game of ball. At the end of each game, He’d say, “It’s a shame, But I guess we just can’t win them all. " Mary Ann Maynard f 30 I TO LIMERICKS There is a young man in our town, Who perpetually wears a big frown. I think if he smiled more, He’d find a life worthwhile for, A smile is a frown upside down. Pauline Boeglin There was a young girl we called Jane, Who ran up to school in the rain. She got there quite late, At twenty past eight, Soaking wet from her shoes to her brain. Mary Ann Maynard I once knew a fellow named Jerry Who often told jokes he thought merry. One day out of fun In class he told one And Jerry’s no longer so merry. Tony Galvagna There was a young man from Methuen Who didn’t know what he was doin’. He stepped on the gas When he spied a fair lass, And now his new Ford is a ruin. Robert Banks There was quite a guy named Paul Who boasted that he knew it all. This kid was so smart They set him apart And now he is on the ball. Tony Galvagna So good for the brain, so nice for the mind Are books and studies and stuff of that kind. But sometimes it’s good To forget what one should And just have a plain nice good time. Joan Nery I put up the windows, I pull down the blind, Oh where, oh where have I left it behind? I open the closet to see if it’s there, I even start to comb out my hair. You question my search—you say you can find That which I am talking about—my mind? Joan Nery ■131 SPORTo CHEERLEADERS The Johnson High School Cheerleaders added five new members to their squad this year. They are: Marion Bamford, Betty Corcoran, Christina Kane, Patricia Smith, and Ellen Driscoll. Along with Barbara Watts, Evelyn Roche (head cheerleaders), Jean Calder, and Carolyn Dushame, they did a wonderful job of leading the cheers for our football team. GIRLS’ BASKETBALL Johnson’s Girls’ Basketball Team was coached by Mrs. Bateman. The managers were Patricia Smith and Mary Long. All but Evelyn Roche (Captain), Jane Broderick, Mary Ann Maynard, Ellen Driscoll, Marjorie Terret and Barbara Deighan, will return to represent Johnson on the court next year. Sports, 1951 FOOTBALL Despite the setback of several in jured players, the 1950 football sea¬ son was an excellent one. Under the captainship of Paul Driscoll, the fighting team won five out of nine games. We salute the hardworking fellows who presented us with the many well-earned victories. BASKETBALL The poor condition of the home court has been the main reason for the many lost games. Despite this hindrance, the team, with Fred Mar- land as captain, has played good games of basketball. Our hats are off to the fellows who sought to bring us victory despite our lack of a good gym. BASEBALL Under the coaching of Mr. George Lee, the baseball squad opened the season with a victory in which John Zuill set a new league mark with 20 strike-outs. As we go to press, the team has an average of two victories and two defeats. The class of ’51 congratulates our boys for their fine work.
