Zke gobbler 1952 JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL NORTH ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS Class Song To tune adapted from Browne Greston-Cole Farewell dear Johnson, Time has come to part, As from these halls we go Sadness fills our hearts To all the friends we’ve made And our teachers true, May we bring honor In everything we do. Farewell dear Johnson, Raise her banner high Proudly we’ll stand by you, As the years go by. Memories will linger on Memories will not die, To thee we sing thy praise, Farewell Johnson High. Words by Helen Langlois Dedication wmbBBh ■ ■ ' To Miss Neal go our deepest respect and gratitude for her patience in her continuous struggle to drum into our minds the basic fundamentals of typing and bookkeeping. If you ever need advice or help in either bookkeeping or typing, she is always ready to explain the situation in a clear and precise way. Our sincere appreciation to a teacher who not only understands the problems of high schoolers, but also knows how to cope with them. ALVAH G. HAYES Headmaster Message to the Seniors Class of 1952: About this time of year I am always asked to leave a brief message with the graduation class. There are so many things which might be said that it frequently is difficult to know exactly what to offer. Shortly you will receive your high school diplomas and in the comparatively near future you will arrive at the age where you will be entitled to exercise the greatest political privilege of a free people — the privilege of selecting, by ballot, those who will make and enforce the laws under which you are to live. It is quite possible that some of you fail to appreciate the political freedom of your country as represented in your right to vote. This is true because in this country citizens have always possessed this right. However, the privilege and the freedom which goes with it could be lost. Peoples in many countries have, within your memories, lost their franchise. It is not always lost through revolution. It can be lost by electing to office the wrong kind of men. It could be lost if a sufficient number of people failed to exercise their privilege of voting. I will leave with you then, this advice. When you reach the age at which you may vote, never fail to exercise this privilege. Give careful thought to your selections. Be guided in your choice by the demonstrated ability, honesty and courage of those for whom you vote. If you and other young people observe these simple rules, the freedom which you have always known will continue to be yours. Failing in such observance, your freedom could be lost. ALVAH G.

Valedictory AN OPTIMISTIC AMERICA Here we find ourselves, in the year 1952, confronted on all hands with evidences of scandal, corruption and Communism. Our very government itself has not escaped the vicious taint of these evils. Amid the trials of Communists operating in high official capacities, the Mink Coat and other such scandals, and the vile political graft which day in and day out serves as the theme for so many newspaper headlines, who can deny that we are in great need of reform? But, although we have not come here to delude you into the misconception that the outlook is “rosy”, so to speak, neither would we have you believe that our country has fallen so deeply into the miry bog of national decay that all trace of virtue has been eaten out of its soul. We can and must review, analyze and appreciate the honorable characteristics of our America if we would eradicate the undesirable traits. Why? Simply because no human being can constantly face only the ominous issue without becoming pessimistic or corrupt himself. What is there then to give us confidence? Why, the very essentials which went into the molding of this great country. The founders of our nation held a firm belief in their principles. They believed in liberty, justice, the natural and unalienable rights of the common man. They believed in themselves. But perhaps most important was another belief: belief or faith in an omnipotent God. Yet what avail is a belief, no matter how staunch, if there is no initiative, no leadership, no will to practice the belief in the sweat of honest labor? In the history of the United States we discover an abundance of these characteristics. Washington, who led the continental army to victory over the British regulars; Lincoln, pushing his way through the Civil War, pulling the nation behind him; Theodore Roosevelt, carrying his big stick — all exemplify the aforementioned attributes. There is a third feature essential to survival — fortitude. It took guts, to use the language of the boys, for the industrious pioneers to follow their convictions and, guided by them, to construct our great Republic. In this word “pioneers” we would include every visionary man and woman from Columbus to the scientists of today. We won’t even mention the bravery of the American armed forces in war after war, over the past few centuries or the pluck of thousands of heroic civilians giving freely of their time and talents to better our homeland which not only permits but encourages its citizens to think and express themselves openly. Tell me, friends, concerning these three qualities which were so outstanding in previous years in this country, have they become old-fashioned, passe? Are we, as a people, now barren of these desirous traits? The answer is an obvious and emphatic no! When we see the cases of people like Arnold Schuster (God rest him) who dared to do his duty as a citizen even though he must have been aware of the danger imminent to himself, how can we fail to recognize the presence of such moral excellences as we have been considering? Another evidence of these qualities is the story of the Los Angeles school teacher who campaigned for better conditions for her pupils. She believed in herincentive, she worked unceasingly toward her goal, and she had the courage to carry on her purpose even after she lost he r job in the fight. Then we cannot omit the example of the Korean Conflict, an all too constant reminder of these American characteristics which too many men are dying to prove. There are numerous national virtues which should serve to give us individual confidence. Three of these we have dealt with directly. These, in turn, naturally lead us on to others. In the last analysis, of course, our optimism must lie in Faith, Hope and Charity. Let us live confidently in an optimistic America. George Knightly I 15 Salutatory THE TRUTH ABOUT TEEN-AGERS Are teen-agers going to the everlasting bow-wows? Every generation entering middle age has trumpeted this fact over a shivering world. Yet when the middle-aged group of today was itself the teen-agers, were not they too the subject of the jeremiads pronounced by their middle-aged groups? And so it goes. But the teen-agers of twenty years ago are now the «olid, respectable, respected and beloved parents of the teen-age group here on ' he stage before you tonight. We think those teen-agers of long ago are about the best people we’ll ever know. Dare we hope the same will be said twenty years hence about us? Here are reasons for believing so. Teen-agers are painfully aware of their bad reputation. In a survey in a large midwestern city, teen-agers listed the charges most frequently made against them. The three most often mentioned were crime, narcotics and reckless diiving. Juvenile delinquency, today, is a catch phrase used to cover a multitude of acts never before classified as sins. Even the word delinquency depends on where you live. In some cities, young people caught smoking on the public streets can be arrested as delinquents. In a western town, police were sent to round up all teen-age bootblacks and book them as delinquents. At the same time, in a town fifty miles away, the mayor was honoring teen-age bootblacks for their independence and industry. He gave a turkey dinner for tliese youngsters and referred to them as “today’s Horatio Algers.” As far as actual arrests are concerned, people call for the police a lot quicker than they used to. Consider some recent “crimes” for which teen-agers were arrested. In Fresno, California, four boys removed the caps from pop bottles still in the vending machine and drank the contents through long straws. In Seattle, Washington, three boys tossed paper bags of water from a second-story window. In Atlantic City, New Jersey, two teen-age school girls daubed a poodle belonging to a cranky next-door neighbor with red paint. A generation ago such problems would have been solved in a woodshed. But even after the misleading case is discounted, the fact remains that real juvenile delinquency is on the rise. Inadequate schools, insufficient government facilities and apatl etic communities must share the blame. The most important cause of delinquency is what should be called parental delinquency. The American home has frequently ceased to exert its influence for the good. Some recent statistics on teen-ag rs reveal that only twelve out of a thousand get in trouble with the law and that means that there are 988 who are doing well. What is the real story on youthful drug addiction? The American parent has been deceived into believing that there are millions of teen-age drug addicts walking the streets. Actually there are only 10,000 teen-age addicts in the whole country; horrible enough, but not as hopelessly a black picture as has been generally painted. Dope is not an insidious, seductive temptation liable to engulf anybody. The parents of the reasonably happy, normal, adjusted child can relax. Teen-age accidents behind the wheel have been cruelly publicized by news¬ papers and magazines. Teen-agers do not have mbre accidents than more experienced drivers but, when they do have a mishap, it is usually fatal. Because this ugly condition occurs, reporters swarm to cover the story, thereby pointing a treacherous and accusing finger of guilt at teen-agers. The teen-agers have responded wholeheartedly to the move for Driver edu¬ cation offered by their elders. Today only highly trained paraplegic drivers and equally well-trained commercial truck drivers surpass the teen-agers’ safety record. It was not long ago that drivers under the age of twenty were at the very foot of the safety record. They are now in third place, proving that given the proper instruction, teen-agers equal and excel in ability many of the middle-aged automobile drivers. The teens are a period of physical and emotional adjustment. Even young people who are clearly headed for a very mature and stable adulthood sometimes pass through periods of wild, irresponsible, distressing activity. Although the storm and stress period may cause an awful uproar at the time, it apparently has little effect on the final result. The adult should play an important role in channeling youthful energy so that young people can let off steam in a manner that will do no harm to themselves or others. Youth is not “getting worse and worse” with each succeeding generation. Teen-agers do not live in a world of their own but in the world which everyone shares with them. Juvenile delinquency very clearly goes up and down with the changing ther¬ mometer of group and international tensions, with public calm and turmoil. Teen-agers are willing and anxious to work on their own problems, to clear their record. Society has never been better equipped to help them. Youth’s performance falls short of its ideals, but teen-agers know right from wrong and they do not have cynical, selfish moral standards. A generation ago young people were w orried almost exclusively about getting a job and getting ahead. Now they are much more concerned about international amity and the application of democratic principles to practical living. They are more interested in the square deal than the big deal. Hence, youth’s prospects are encouraging and this country has reason to feel optimistic about its rising generation. Joyce Hamilton Class Essay THE OPEN DOORS It was a lovely summer day with tiny, white puffs of clouds floating lazily across the blue sky when I closed the book I had just finished reading. Having enjoyed the book, I considered how T much I might have missed if, swayed by the general prejudice against a classic author, I had passed by this book. Then, as in a dream, I seemed to be surrounded by a multitude of open doors bearing such labels as art, literature, music, science and many others which I realized I had overlooked many times. I wondered, almost simultaneously, how ' many others were also missing the countless opportunities offered by these open doors. First, I considered literature and its numerous rewards. Most obvious, of course, is the deep, abiding pleasure one experiences as the imagination soars to un¬ dreamed of heights. However, beneath the surface lie such hidden treasures as a fuller understanding of human nature and a real sympathy for one’s fellow: men. Then a few strains of a lovely melody drifted into my reverie and I felt the immediate release from my everyday world into a completely new land of incredible beauty. Suddenly, the knowdedge of something beyond the material sent hope surging throught my heart. Then, as the last measures faded in the distance, I seemed to discover an exhibition of pictures, all the masterpieces of the ages. Somehow I knew ' that with better understanding would come the key which unlocks the doors of the past and may well fit those of the future. Finally, through the last door, I noticed a microscope and, peering into it, veils of mystery suddenly slipped away and knowledge stood out in all its glory, emitting a glow which brightened even the darkest corners. Later, considering this imaginative journey, I sincerely hoped that others might follow in my footsteps, to discover the endless vistas and opportunities for service to mankind which lie just beyond these open doors. Diana Reach Class Essay UNFATHOMABLE SCIENCE How far are the creative and imaginative powers of man going to extend? Is there ever going to be an end to his discoveries and inventions? Man has been en¬ dowed with intellectual powers that have made him the master of nature and its incredible storehouse of energy. He is surrounded by facilities which encourage him to exercise his intellect. The earth is his well-equipped research laboratory. Every nook and cranny of it is overflowing with unknowns, teasing and luring him in to exploration. Daily, these dimly perceived, half-sensed areas are yielding their powers and secrets to the probing scientists, those modern magicians who are discovering the miraculous powers in nature and who are unearthing the mysteries that this old world has contained for so long. Will they someday exhaust nature’s reservoir of wonders? Already man has advanced scientifically to unbelievable heights. There appears to be no limit to the peaks he can reach. In the vast sea of science time is just a gentle ripple, composing an ever- changing tide, which washes ceaselessly on every shore. The Victorians felt the measured impact of the shifting tides as their shores were littered with accumulated knowledge. The Victorians, by use of this knowledge in their smug, small, secure, universe, imagined themselves to have reached the ultimate in modern existence and inventions. They proudly boasted gas lighting in the homes and streets. Their newly improved roads in¬ sured fast communication, their elaborate horse-drawn vehicles provided transportation, and the many plushly elegant theatres offered entertainment. The tide did not cease to ebb as they anticipated, but continued its endless journey. We, as others before us, are feeling the force of this mounting turbulent sea. Our speed is dominated by jet propulsion, atomic and hydrogen energy are setting the pace for our power, rapid communication is via the wireless, our entertainment is brought to us through the mediums of moving pictures and television, and newly proposed space bases are to be placed outside the earth’s atmosphere to enable man by the use of tele¬ scopes and other powerful lenses to inspect the daily actions of all the peoples in the world, thus erasing the iron curtain and every material barrier. These bases may be the in¬ strument to promote world peace. The pace of recent scientific advancements is frightening. Man has surged forward materialistically and allowed social and spiritual fields to remain inert. He is like a child receiving a new toy, not knowing exactly what to do with it — a toy, which in his inexperienced hands can be both creative and destructive. This well may be the time for mankind to make a change of emphasis. From the Renaissance until now, man has concentrated on material development. From now on, in the face of our present frightening evolutions, perhaps man had best de-emphasize the physical and material in order to use his almost fabulous creative and imaginative powers to explore and develop other than his material resources. Just as the physical horizons receded before his ingenious attacks, so can the moral, political, and spiritual horizons lift and broaden. Who knows what new Edison, Einstein, Steinmetz, Whitehead, or Roentgen the immediate future is preparing to usher onto the stage of the world? The battle for man’s physical control has been largely won through the brilliance of such men. Now the world, in breathless hope and anxiety, waits for the social, moral, and spiritual geniuses who will come one day to teach mankind how to use the great powers he now has for the common good of humanity. Elizabeth Duncan Class Oration “WE SHALL FIND A PATH OR MAKE ONE” “We shall find a path or make one” is an extremely apt motto that we, the graduating class of ' 1952, have chosen. It is our goal to make this world a little better for our having been in it, by each doing his share to achieve peace and justice. If this seems like a grandiose ambition for high school graduates, let each recall that society, both nationally and internationally, is a social organism. The wholesome activity of each part contributes to the health of the whole. Each grain of sand plays its part to make the beautiful coastline of New England and similarly each tiny tissue that the blood stream nourishes contributes to the healthy, virile body. Likewise, each of us can make his tiny, but essential contribution to the welfare of the national and international societies which make the world. Many are the paths which have been beaten out for us. What trail blazers, through the savage undergrowth of selfishness, greed, stupidity, brutality, and disunity, were such greats as Washington, Jackson and Lincoln! George Washington, to whom our nation turned first for leadership, and who is admired today by everyone, young and old, was exceedingly instrumental in aiding the American people to realize their dream of a free, democratic country. At all times during the Revolutionary War, he was fated to lead an army that was ill-fed, scantily-clothed and lacking ammunition. It was only through his ingenious military strategy, equalled only by Caesar, that he mastered these overwhelming forces and won the war. Yet not once during that bitter fighting did Washington lose sight of its purpose — the improve¬ ment of the life of the people, their liberty and the pursuit of happiness for everyone. Another outstanding example in American history is Andrew Jackson, a courageous frontier lawyer from Tennessee, who devoted his life to making the Federal government serve the common man. It was his firm belief that any honest man could hold a public office acceptably. This expension of political ideas to include the common man indicates the fast-growing feeling of democracy, and the gradual turning away from the aristocratic ideas of the mother country. Another great pioneer was Lincoln. We are indebted to him for his tireless efforts to preserve and pacify our country so that it might become the united nation it is today. He did not achieve this extremely difficult task by the subtle art of politics and intrigue, nor by resorting to ruthlessness and inhumanity. This goal was accom¬ plished by his rigid ideals, firmness of purpose, and qualities of humanity. To this great man we owe gratitude for the lesson he taught, — that the combination of understanding, kindness and humanity with leadership constitutes a true greatness in statecraft. Even in our present day, prominent trail blazers such as MacArthur, our E.C.A. administrators and innumerable unknown heroes in and out of uniform, are facing the same seemingly insurmountable odds that our past leaders struggled with. They are attempting to spread the exact ideas of democracy to the other countries of the world, trying to show these nations the benefits of a people’s government compared with a Facist, Nazi or Communistic regime. World Wars I and II were waged because of this, and it is also the primary reason for the ominous threat of a third cosmic eruption. To make newer and broader paths now will be the work of our generation. We cannot and we must not, like lost wanderers, be without an objective. We must realize the uselessness of sulking cynicism and petulant disillusion. The world crisis we face affords us neither the time nor inclination to strike poses, to lick our wounds, or to weep great salty tears of self-pity. For us a more virile and American task is at hand. The patient courage of a Washington, Jackson’s abiding faith in the worth and ability of the common man, the clear-eyed and all-embracing Christian charity of a Lincoln — all these are the frail marks which point for us the way to go. And as we push down these glorious paths we shall push on into newer realms of newer problems. But from the paths we have followed we shall know how to mark out the new paths needed. We have found the path. It is now our task to advance it and make the new one. Marian Bamford I } Hits of 1952 {20 {21 CLASS As we, the Class of 1952, look back on the happy years spent at Johnson, we remember the eventful day when first we entered the doors of Stevens Hall. After a brief talk by Mr. Hayes, we proceeded to our first class and the “settling-down " period. Our first act of responsibility was the election of class officers. George Knightly was chosen president; Robert Thomson, vice-president; and Patricia Scarry, secretary-treasurer. Two new girl students were added to the class that year, namely, Peg Green¬ field and Lorraine Sabin. They certainly added some animation and gaiety to the class. For the first time, the sponsor system was introduced to Johnson. The purpose of this plan was to help the freshmen adjust themselves to high school life. We all had an older appointed “brother” or “sister” who helped us with any problems we had. Myra Stilwell, of Stevens’ Library, showed the entire student body a motion picture entitled, “How to Act at the Junior Prom.” Being novices and curious about this subject, it served to prepare us for coming years. Having survived the many trials and tribulations of being a freshman, we entered our sophomore year, after a very relaxing summer vacation. Being a little older and wiser, we began to take a more active part in school activities. George Knightly was elected class president for the next three years, a position which he very capably fdled. “Bob” Thomson was re-elected vice-president, and Marian Bamford became our new secretary-treasurer. Mr. Thomson, a new member of the faculty, took over Miss Callanan’s position, teaching us the proper use of English. The National Honor Society was introduced to Johnson that year, and the students with high scholastic standings became members and were presented with pins. In March we had a very interesting assembly, conducted by Mr. Robert Hastings of General Motors, entitled “Previews of Progress.” One of the most interesting experiments, the cooking of an egg on a “cold stove — guaranteed not to get hot,” amazed the entire student body. December 22, the annual Christmas assembly was held in the hall. Mr. Mosher led the assembly in singing Christmas carols. The Dramatic Club presented a play and some of the best actresses of the sophomore class took part. The seventh of September, in the late summer of nineteen hundred and fifty, marked the closing day of onr enjoyable vacation. We, in imagination, left our memo- { 22 HISTORY able times and fun behind and returned to Johnson where, as upper-classmen, we resumed our studies. Our newly elected officers, George Schofield, vice-president and Arlene George, secretary-treasurer, proved both efficient and popular. We were most happy to welcome Helen Clarke as a lovely addition to our class. There was a great deal of excitement when it came time to select the class ring. At a class meeting we reached a decision on what style of ring we wished to have. The annual school play was a huge success and a great financial aid to our class. Junior students participating in this school affair used terrific personal effort to further the extensive sale of tickets, thus increasing our class treasury tremendously. June eighth was the greatest event of the year for the students who attended the Junior-Senior Prom. A group of six pupils were elected to represent the junior class on the Prom Committee. This committee did a fine job in making this event very suc¬ cessful. Again taking up our studies in nineteen hundred and fifty-one, we began our last trek down the long road of our high school education. We were indeed proud to be seniors, yet we felt deeply regretful that the days of our high school life were running out. The only new officer elected in our senior year was Joyce Hamilton, our secretary- treasurer. We gained a new classmate when Helen Langlois became a member of our class. The sum of one hundred and twenty-five dollars was added to the class treasury due to the active work of our senior girls in sponsoring a successful ‘‘Dogpatch Hop” which drew young people from the surrounding communities. This year was the beginning of a driver training course at Johnson. The school procured a 1952 Dodge from the T. J. Robinson Co., which was used for driving instruction. There was a great deal to be done by everyone in the latter part of our senior year. Students were procuring pictures for the yearbook and giving portraits to their classmates. Members of various committees worked co-operatively to make all of our social events remunerative and highly enjoyable to all who participated. The time has now arrived to bid farewell to Johnson. At this time especially we all should keep in our minds this very important advice “We shall find a path or make one.” Respectfully, Chris and Dan 1 23 CLASS We, the Class of 1952, being of sound mind (as if you would ever question it) hereby bequeath and publish our talents and abilities (?) to the anxious Juniors.

To Johnson we leave our cherished memories of the four happy years we have spent here. We remain—no, on second thought under the circumstances we had better leave, Fay and Walt CLASS It was the year 1972 as we boarded our atom-propelled, transcontinental D-D 52 (Donald DeAdder) airplane for Johnsonia. The plane was piloted by Gioia Giribaldi. The delicious food was prepared by the Langlois Food Corporation and it was served by stewardesses Irene Holdsworth and Mary Hamel. Johnsonia, a new nation, discovered in 1953 by two intrepid young explorers, Milton Long and Edmund Finn, was named in honor of their alma mater. We were going to Johnsonia to visit our friends in this new country. This country’s rapid growth was due in great part to Admiral Knightly’s great naval fleet. As we landed, we were welcomed to Johnsonia by Ambassador Joyce Hamil¬ ton who was now the head of the American Embassy. She took us to the luxurious Sjostrom and Sjostrom hotel. She told us of the wonders of the scientific experiments conducted by Betty Duncan and Diana Reach who had recently developed fire-proof bathing suits for water ballet dancers. Naturally, she was curious about some of the other graduates of the great class of “52”. Bob Thomson, we said, a psychiatrist, was very busy these days in the United States treating the frustrated personalities which resulted trying to find out which twin has the “Toni”. She was very happy to hear that after twenty years of fervent search, William Enaire and Dick “Tracy” Waddington were the heroic G-men who split the Brinks’ case wide open. Herbert Wood and Jack Haigh are now the head artists for Esquire. Their favorite models are Pat Smith, Barbara Saul, and Dot Love. You never saw men more devoted to their work. Joanne McAloon achieved her life long ambition — marrying a millionaire. The millionaire is none other than the famed author David Janusz. His latest book is “How to Win Friends and Irritate Teachers.” That evening, a bit tired from the trip, we relaxed with television, watching “Fay Belanger’s Comedy Hour.” Fay was funnier than ever. Her guests for the evening were the zany comic team of “McLaughlin and Forgetta.” While Joe was singing “Way Marie”, Danny was jumping up and down screaming “I li - ike it! I li-ike it!” The next morning, at breakfast, we read in Dutchie Ferrigno’s society column the following: “Delighted to hear millionairess Mary Valcourt’s horse “Canterwell” won the Kentucky Derby in the United States.” Doug Alexander, wealthy playboy owner of the “Flanagan and Alexander Dancing Schools”, is spending most of his time lately on the Riviera. After breakfast we decided to visit the Johnson High School of Johnsonia. The headmaster, John Belyea, ruled the school with an iron hand, for if there was one thing he couldn’t tolerate it was breaking rules. Claire Chamberlin was his private secretary. Helen Clarke thoroughly enjoyed her job as head of the Latin department. Joe Cushing, who was now teaching Social Studies, had a favorite motto which was “The facts, the whole facts, and nothing but the facts, so help me, Finneran!” We met a large domineering-looking woman, and if it weren’t for the twinkle in those blue eyes, we never would have recognized Betty Corcoran. Betty was now the physical education teacher of Johnson. She reminisced with us about her younger days. She had been chosen to represent Johnsonia for discus throwing in the Olympic Games, together with skier Walter Crabtree, who now owned a ski lodge in the Swiss Alps, and swimmer Mary Long. They had copped nearly a ll the titles in their respective fields! PROPHECY Evelyn Stone, because of her quiet and reserved manner, was selected to chaperone the group. Betty asked us if we’d like to go to “MacCannell’s Spaghetti House” for lunch with her. As we drove by a large estate, Betty explained to us that it was ow ned by George and Marion (Bamford) Schofield. George relaxes at home while royalties come pouring in from the “Cole Milk Corp.” for their quintuplet sons. George is thrilled to have a personal basketball team. While relishing Jimmy’s delicious meat balls, Betty informed us of the suc¬ cessful modeling agency run by Peg Greenfield and Eleanor Green. Marjorie Midgley is now editor of a pocket size edition of “Life” called “Midget Magazine.” Dick Brow n is known as the friendly undertaker. Betty suggested we rent a car from the Freeman Automobile Corporation of Johnsonia and visit the beach. We followed her suggestion and went to the Freeman firm. It w as a large concern. Forry Smith was Dana’s chief mechanic. Dot Detora was his receptionist and Jane Morse was his bookkeeper. No sooner had we gone fifteen miles when we got a flat tire! After we had tramped some two miles we saw an arrow which said “Kane and Sheehy Garage 1 mile ahead.” One mile later and a trifle di¬ sheveled we reached the garage. When the car was fixed and we were on our way again, we tuned in on the radio to hear the familiar and cheery voice of Amy Wilton giving directions for her receipe of “Northern Fried Southern Style Chicken.” Amy’s program was followed by “The Jimmy Meikle Family Hour with All the Little Meikles.” At the beach we ordered a super-deluxe ice cream sundae at Doherty’s ice cream parlo r. While basking in the warm sun, we met Jane Doran with her four energetic sons. Just the person we wanted to meet to gather all the news about our classmates! Marilyn Zemba is now married to the ambassador from Bussia. Marjorie Blodgett and Mary Walsh are running a nursery school for back¬ ward debutantes. Lorraine Sabin is the nursery nurse. Chris Kane and Joan Kilton run a dude ranch where they specialize in breed¬ ing bow-legged horses for ding-toed cowboys. Virginia Verda is now a dress designer for the natives in.the South Seas. Joan Stoessel and Eunice Wilcox have just put on the market, striped dinner jackets for the aristocratic inmates at Alcatraz. We told Jane about the sensation Maureen Hogan and Bobbie McCoy were making in Miami Beach. Maureen is a sepulchral torch singer while Bobbie accompanies her with musical spoons. Civic-minded Laura Licciardello, in order to clean up the city, has a large chain of laundermats. Jane told us of the sensation Carolyn Dushame was making on Narrow lane, otherwise known in New York as Broadway, in “North Atlantic.” After a few r more days of vacationing in Johnsonia, we returned to the United States in a luxury liner owned by Florence Towne. Ever since her high school days, Florence has had a strong attraction for the sea. Respectfully, Arlene and Jim Do You Remember When? Mr. Finneran came to school wearing two different socks? Miss Cook wouldn’t let French III out during the fire drill? The football team refused to have its picture taken with the cheerleaders? We had victory parties after every game in 1951?

CHEERLEADERS We would like to salute the cheerleaders for their wonderful spirit and the effort they expended to make each football game a colorful one. They really backed up the fellows on the team. Marion Bamford and Carolyn Dushame did a splendid job as head cheerleaders. The other cheerleaders were Christina Kane, Mary Long, Dorothy Love, Barbara Saul, Patricia Smith, Betty Corcoran, Claire Arsenault, and Patricia Driscoll. GIRLS’ BASKETBALL TEAM This year our Girls’ Basketball Team did very well in its games, although our team was not a member of the League. Betty Corcoran, captain, and Joanne Greene were high scorers for the team. The team was coached by Mrs. Gertrude Bateman. FOOTBALL As had been the case in past years, the 1951 football team of Johnson was greatly hampered with injuries with Co-Captain George Knightly being on the sidelines for half of the season. The loss of quarterback Alexander was also heavily felt, but the Johnson club played hard, rough, clean football under the inspiration of all-scholastic Co-Captain Jack Shottes. The team ended up the season on Thanksgiving Day with a much- needed victory over Punchard High School of 14-12. Tlie winning touch¬ down was scored with less than a minute left to play. The final record for the team, which the class of ’52 is proud of, was five wins and four losses. BASKETBALL The 1952 basketball team of John¬ son was under the leadership of Captain George Schofield. The team was loaded with potential scorers, as was shown many times during the season. The club lost many heart¬ breaking games by slight margins. The class of ’52 salutes the team for giving a fine display of sports¬ manship on the basketball court. BASEBALL The Johnson High Baseball Team opened the 1952 season with a squad lacking veteran material However, after weeks of practice, the team en¬ tered the opening game full of confidence, looking forward to a winning season. We of the Gobbler staff wish Captain Alexander and the 1952 Johnson High baseball squad a most successful season. : Wm _ - j ■Hkb ' % « »i n At tM ’Smmrnrnm . tK Sfa ..
