!ll!l!i!H ' ■ NORTH ANDOVER HIGH SCHOOL DfDICflTIOH JOHN J. CUSHING John J. Cushing, head custodian of our high school, has endeared himself to every member of the Class of 1956 by the warmth of his nature and his sympathetic understanding. We have received his unstinting help and cheerful co¬ operation in all our projects. We trust that the dedication of our yearbook to him will serve, in a measure, as a token of our appreciation for his many kindnesses to us. THOMAS F. POWERS In the one short year that he has been on our faculty Thomas F. Powers, assistant basketball coach and teacher of history, science, and Eng¬ lish, has established a warm and lasting place for himself in the hearts and minds of all his students. For his unfailing interest in and support of all our extra-curricular activities and his patient understanding and help in class we, the Class of 1956, dedicate our yearbook to him. GLVflH G. HflyfS ■ HfflDIIlflSTfR Alvah G. Hayes — Headmaster, B.S., M.Ed., Mathematics Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston University Gla A, 1956: You have now received your high school diplomas and it is assumed that you are now mature individuals. But have you ever paused to reflect upon the meaning of maturity? You should, since maturity is one of the most important characteristics which man may possess. It has many definitions, but a very concise one which I will pass on to you is this. Maturity is a set of attitudes which enable one to make decisions for the good of the group instead of the individual. Unfortunately, history is a recurring story of too many immature people- in responsible places. Doctors will tell you that most mental illnesses are due to emotional stresses which are an outgrowth of immaturity. There are many indications of immaturity. A few of these are listed below. (1) Constant complaining about trivial matters. (2) An unpredictable disposition. (3) An eternal suspicion of people and their motives. (4) Constantly living in a future " dream world” instead of facing present day reality. (5) Failure to have a wide range of interests. (6) Inability to adjust to adversity. We all must learn to cooperate with the inevitable. I would suggest that you all examine yourselves with respect to the above points, and if some of them seem to apply to you, make an honest and serious effort to correct the situation. Only when you have acquired or developed the correct set of attitudes can you really be classified as a mature individual. Alvah G. Hayes MARY BUCKLEY B.S.

(£CaA Sony (To the tune of " America”) Farewell, North Andover, We’ll hold for-e-ver Your mem-o-ry. Four years flew by it seems, They’ll soon be distant dreams, When we are sailing separate streams In future years. We give our teachers praise, They’ve helped in many ways To mold our lives. What e’er the future hold, As days and years unfold, We ll ne’er forget our friends of old Nor these hallowed halls. Words by Joan McDuffie, Martha Roberts, and Gilda Nardi CLASS On a bright September morning in 1952 a group of dewy-eyed, nervous freshmen congregated outside Stevens Hall and anxiously awaited the summons into the hall. Once we were settled on the wooden chairs of varied hues, Mr. Hayes began a talk which acquainted us with the many aspects of high school life. One of his last remarks to us that day was, The four years here in high school will pass quickly, and before you know it you will be graduating.” How right he was! One of our first official acts as freshmen at Johnson was to elect class officers. As president, Sam Galvagna was elected. Jim Norwood filled the office of vice-president, and Francie Broderick was our first secretary-treasurer. Held also, that fall, was an election for national and state officials. The results were practically the same as the nation-wide election, with the only difference being a tie between Dever and Herter for governor. A faculty member was also enjoying his freshman year at Johnson. He was Mr. Reed K. Taylor, an instructor in English, history, and speech. The first social event of the year, the Freshman-Senior Dance, was held on November 14. This dance served to make us feel more at ease in the presence of the awesome senior class. One of the first assemblies we watched in Stevens Hall was an exhibition by Mr. Benjamin Posner, a national speed typing champion. Among the other assemblies were a very entertaining hour of music by the Glee Club of New England College, and a Christmas program directed by Mr. Mosher, our music instructor. On January 20, 1953, history was made at Johnson High School. Three television sets were installed so the entire school could watch the inaugural ceremonies in Washington. The freshman class was assigned to the cafeteria where we jostled and pushed to get seats up front. The Brooks School scholarships were awarded to David Long and Philip Arsenault as a result of their academic excellence. As the year drew to a close, we looked forward to the fall when we would return as sopho¬ mores. Our first duty as sophomores was to elect class officers. Jim Norwood was elected to the presidency and Ted Snell to the vice-presidency. Francie Broderick was re-elected as secretary- treasurer. This being our second year at Johnson, we had a much stronger school spirit. We watched with pride as the new high school band marched down Main Street to Grogan’s Field. Mr. Mosher was highly congratulated for his hard and patient work in once more putting a " J.H.S.” band on the football field. Another sidelight of the same game was the new football mascot, Mr. Finneran’s basset hound Shane, who led the team onto the field sporting a smart red and black sweater with a large " J” on it. Two new teachers were added to the faculty this year. One was Miss Harriet Dunham, the girls’ physical education instructor and girls’ basketball coach. The other was Mr. Harwood Steele, a teacher in our commercial department, and the freshman basketball coach and junior varsity baseball coach. A special assembly was held in which the town of North Andover was honored by being presented with a Pedestrian Safety Award by the Registry of Motor Vehicles. We had a new opportunity to watch television this year. The event this time was the President’s annual message to Congress. Dennis Currier, with his fine performance, sparked the school play this year. The latter part of this, our second year at Johnson, was spent in packing books and other supplies which were to be shipped to the spanking new building across the highway. At the same time, a raging controversy was being waged. The school committee decided that the new school should be named North Andover High School, while most of the alumni of Johnson and the student body favored retaining the name " Johnson”. Although we were to enter a brand new building which could offer much more to us, many of the class felt a certain reluctance to leave the ivy-clad, protective walls of Johnson. The old building had served the town faithfully for many years and was now being finally abandoned. No longer would we eat our lunches outside or shuffle along dimly lit corridors from a deep freeze room to a hot, stuffy room. We would no longer have classes in tiny Room 11 or in spacious Stevens Hall. Yet all these things added to our reluctance in leaving. It was time to say goodbye forever to old Johnson High School. As we began the second half of our high school career, we had the wonderful experience of entering the brand new North Andover High School. We were sorry to leave old Johnson High, for even the name would now remain just a memory. As upper classmen, we elected for our junior class officers Normie Heinze as president, Dennis Currier as vice-president, and again Francie Broderick as secretary-treasurer. HISTOR y The formal dedication of North Andover High School was held on October 31, 1954. At this time, the school was open to visitors, and many enthusiastic townspeople became familiar with the new building. The school library was dedicated to the memory of Annie L. Sargent, whose portrait is now in the library. This year we welcomed two new teachers to our school. Mr. William Larochelle came to us from Woodbury High School to teach English, history, and problems of democracy. He also coaches our baseball and basketball teams and is assistant football coach. Mr. Howard Crozier came from Farmington, Maine, to teach physical education and to coach football and track. As juniors, we received our class rings in January, a month earlier than was customary. The annual school play was a big event as always, and we had many juniors take part. The cast of " The Goose Hangs High, " directed by Mr. Reed Taylor, included as juniors Martha Roberts, Dick Moody, Chuck Hutchins, Sam Galvagna and Dennis Currier. Because we were now members of N.A.H.S., it was decided to rename the Johnson Journal. The quarterly publication is now known as the North Andover High-Lites. During our junior year, we had many fine assembly programs. A representative from General Motors explained the principles of " Hi-Fi” recording, synthetic materials in chemistry, and super¬ sonic speed. Mr. Taylor’s speech class dramatized a one act play which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. A man from General Electric gave an excellent performance with his " House of Magic”. He explained many fascinating principles in the field of electricity. During the Christmas season, the members of the chorus gave a wonderful performance when they presented a Christmas pageant. We also had a talent show put on by some of our classmates. The acts were varied and many, and we all enjoyed the show. We were very fortunate to have a representative from the Museum of Science who talked about animals of New England. He brought with him some live animals which made this assembly very enjoyable. As juniors, we had the privilege of attending the annual prom. We danced in our own gymnasium, and then proceeded to the Andover Country Club for an after-prom banquet. There we enjoyed a wonderful meal and had Jan Strickland, a popular singer, appear in person. This was an exciting evening for all who attended. This year we welcomed many Boxford students to North Andover High School as fellow students. We returned in the fall of 1955 as seniors at N.A.H.S. This was to be our most important year of high school, and the one we would remember the most. This year we elected Dennis Currier as our president, Ted Snell as vice-president, and Chuck Hutchins as secretary-treasurer. This year we were thrilled with our football victory over Methuen High with a score of 12-0. During our senior year, the basketball team really gained fame by traveling all the way to Boston Garden to participate in the semi-finals of the Tech Tournament. In our last year, three new teachers came to N.A.H.S. Joseph Lynch teaches algebra, plane geometry, and general science. James McDonald teaches speech, English, and world history. Thomas Powers teaches history, civics, and English, and is the junior varsity basketball coach. The annual school play, " A Man of Seventeen”, w ' as very successful. Dick Moody and Dave Trombly were the seniors who took part. As exchange students, Beverly Nichol, Joan McDuffie, Nancy Pendlebury, Sam Galvagna, and Dennis Currier journeyed to Lynn English High School. The seniors elected as their Good Government Day representative Sam Galvagna, who was to represent our school in Boston. Francie Broderick was selected for the D.A.R. Good Citizenship Award. We enjoyed many assemblies during our senior year, the first one being a Negro spiritual singer and story teller. At another assembly, a woman told of her European travels in a very amusing manner. A captain from the Merchant Marine related many unusual experiences about his five trips around the world. A Christmas program was given by the students in which several selections were presented. An Australian girl told us of her experiences on a bicycle trip around Australia, and a science demonstration entitled " On the Beam” was enjoyed by all. For the first time in the history of our school, there was to be a dual yearbook dedication, the two people being Mr. Powers and Mr. Cushing. As our class motto we choose " The higher we rise, the broader the view,” and for the class colors we chose black and gold. For the class honors, Bernice Florin was named valedictorian; Nancy Pendlebury, salutatorian; and Joan McDuffie, class essayist. The seniors elected Chuck Hutchins to be our class orator, and Dennis Currier and Beverly Nichol to be our class marshals at graduation. With graduation coming ever closer, we must not forget the many thanks we owe our teachers who have guided us along the way and who have prepared us for life ahead. The many memories of our high school days will always remain in our hearts as fond memories of N.A.H.S.

And now we leave, hoping that the juniors receive as much enjoyment from the reading of our will as we had in writing it. Respectfully submitted, Gilda and Moe On November 10, 1968, we were very pleased to read in the Kasparian Journal, edited by Meline Kasparian and Nancy West, that our former classmate Josephine Caimi had been elected the first woman president of the United States. We were even more pleased when in January, 1969, we received personal invitations to spend the inaugural week in Washington as special guests of the president-elect. Packing our bags, we hailed a taxi to get to the airport and found our driver to be Chuck Buchanan. Chuck told us that he and Bob Abbott owned a fleet of ten taxis, and that Buthie Finn did all the office work. On entering the airport, we collided with a very dis¬ tinguished gentleman. While he was picking up our bags, we recognized him to be Chuck Hutchins. Chuckie told us that he and his partner, Sam Galvagna, had just launched their first supersonic radar rocket ship designed by Ray Chadwick. At the information booth we recognized the smiling face of Alice Shapcott. Alice told us that we were very lucky to have Dave Trombly as our pilot, Tommy Hamilton as our co-pilot, After a hectic ride we arrived safe and sound at New York. Having an eight hour wait before our next plane, we decided to see some of the big city. We were very surprised to see Mayor Greenler and Councilmen Axtin and Hopping at the airport. Bill explained that the greatest star of the 20th century, Joan McDuffie, was to arrive at any moment. Walking down Fifth Avenue, we saw a sign that said " Crane and Heinze — Modeling Agency.” After meeting Barry and Norm, they told us that four of their prominent models were Pat Buchan, Martha Roberts, Anita Darveau and Janet Bamford. We ate dinner at Detora’s Dugout where Burgie Brightman was chief cook and we were entertained by the Four Lassies. Going backstage to get autographs we found out that the Four Lassies were Carol Marland, Ginny Foster, Norma Roberts and Angela Medici. Their manager, Walter Leoncyk, told us that their latest hit song, " Rocket Ship Romeo,” was the work of the famous writing team of Nevins and Norwood. and Pat Hogan as our stewardess. Taking a subway to the theater, we had a long talk with driver Bob MacArthur. He said that if we went to see " Gentle¬ men Prefer Redheads”, a great stage production written by Marguerite McGuire, we would see some more old friends. Theater manager Jack Lyon was glad to see us, and ushers Don Elliot and Joe Sullivan gave us the best of seats. The leading roles were played wonderfully by Dick Moody and Barbara Wood. Without the expert taxi driving of Arthur Richardson we never would have made it back to the airport for plane time. Our stewardess, Sheila Hardiman, told us two prominent businessmen, Elliot Palmer and Bill White, were also on the plane. We took seats next to them in order to talk over old times, and before we knew it our plane had landed in Washington. We were met at the airport by Ginny Briguglio and Janice Paradis, private secretaries to the president-elect, and driven to the White House by Jack Haley. Jack said he was sure we would enjoy our stay because many of our old classmates had been invited. PROPHfCy Vi« Ttc.s. At the White House we were shown to our rooms by Dave Green. Dave told us we were expected in the main dining room at 7 o’clock for a dinner to be held in honor of all the invited guests. At the dining room we were shown to our table by head- waiter Martin Kilcourse, and were very pleased to find ourselves seated beside Secretary of State Dennis Currier and Senator Hollins. Secretary of the Treasury Chuck May was the master of ceremonies, and the main speaker of the evening was Vice- President Elect Nancy Pendlebury. After dinner we met the ambassadress to Russia, Bernice Florin. Bernice and her secretary, Beverly Nichol, told us a little about their interesting jobs. The commander-in-chief of our armed forces, Howie Rat- cliffe, looked as if thirteen years in the Marines had agreed with him, and we were proud of him when Secretary of War Bob Ela presented him with another medal of honor. Just before leaving, we spied Frances Broderick across the room. Francie told us she had recently been elected president of the National Teachers Association and was attending a confer¬ ence. Accompanying her were her secretary, Gilda Nardi, and her personal advisor, Edith Stott. The next evening, following the inauguration, we attended a gala ball. Chairwoman Thalia Currier and Congresswoman Kathleen McLaughlin acted as hostesses. We were told by Thalia that all decorations were under the direction of interior decorator Jessie McIntosh. The music was supplied by the band of Maurice Foulds, and the female vocalist of the evening was that singing rage Miss Joyce Hayes. At the ball we had a chance to talk some more with our old friends. Betty Hearty, successful hat designer just back from a world cruise, told us while in Paris she had the chance to talk to Joan Verda. Dr. Verda and her secretary Carol Weigel are, as we all know, famous for their research in the field of cancer. J. Me X, Jimmy Dunn took us outside to show us his Dunnsmobile. His chauffeur, Dave McCoy, offered to take us for a ride, but the car looked so powerful we declined his offer. During intermission, architect Benny Kalinowski and his assistant Wayne Pavledakes showed us their model plans for the new White House. Ben told us that another former class¬ mate, Benny Farnum, was to engineer the job. After talking to Congresswoman Phyllis Thomson about the recent election, we returned to our rooms. The next morning we left for home and, as we were getting on the plane, we could not help but marvel at the accomplish¬ ments of our old classmates. Respectfully, Nancy and Ted The N. A. A.
