1950 . ■ ♦ i ' t ☆ ☆ ☆ foreword We, the class of 1950, leave the portals of North Attleboro High with a touch of sadness in our hearts. We regret leaving our kind teach- ers, the underclassmen and even the familiar halls. But we can go forward with the knowl- edge that we have been prepared for the out- side world. Not only our studies, but the everyday association with our teachers and fellow students has given ns training for life. To our principal and teachers goes much of the credit for our accomplishments. The training and s nnpathy given us will always be appre- ciated. We hope that our yeais at North High have added to its glorious heritage. Goodbye and thank von.

WHO PUT THE OVERALLS IN Ml S nURPHAS CHOVDLR PROBLEHS CLASS PROOFS 0A7 AFTER G1W — ZIL — NORTHERn LIGHT CLASS HISTORY ☆ Lj ☆ Barbara Wey and Gordon Bates The big day had arrived. We were Freshmen! Many classes had come and gone through the halls of N. A. H. S., but none like us. We were that scintillating “Class of 1950.” Our set goal was to acquire all the knowledge we could in our four years to come. Like most freshmen classes, we were bashful and backward, but, regardless, made a good name for ourselves in the year — 1947 — . Seeing that Newell Riley had a few of President Truman’s aspects, we chose him for our Class President. Barbara Weygand was Vice-President; Robert Messier, Treasurer; and Irene Stetson, Secretary. Starring on the J. V. football squad this year were three up-and-coming athletes, Richard Magnan, Gordon “Red” Bates, and Fred Frizzell. On the J. V. baseball dia- mond we had Donald Childs and playing that fascinating game of basketball were Gordon Bates and “Don” Ghilds. For girls ' sports we had Dora Messier and Barbara Weygand playing basketball. After gaining a little self-confidence, we presented the first freshman dance held in a number of years called the “Whirlwind” which proved to be successful not only because the student body enjoyed themselves, but because our class treasury was over- loaded with profits. Our second year we did nothing for “Ripley” to take notice of, but did elect a few new class officers. Our President was Peter Dean; Helen Strong, Vice-President; Donald Leary, Treasurer; and Irene Stetson, Secretary. This year we held another dance called “The Spring Jubilee” which was well attended by all. Inevitably, it turned out to be just another success! (ahem!) On the football squad this year we had Gordon Bates, Peter Dean, and Donald Leary, and for basketball we had playing varsity, Gordon Bates, and for the Jv ' s team, Donald Childs. For the weaker sex Dora Messier, Barbara Weygand, and Pat Welch played vai ' sity basketball. When “1949” rolled around we realized ourselves to be upperclassmen but took no advantage of it, of course. This year Pete Dean was re-elected President; Helen Strong, Vice-President; Donald Leary, Treasurer; and Jane Lynch, Secretary. With such capable leaders to guide us we were set for an exciting and properous year to come. Our glorious name was upheld on the gridiron by Peter Dean, Damon Swistak, Bruce Jones, “Red” Bates, Don Leary, and Ronnie Achin. On the basketball court we had Co-captain Gordon “Red” Bates playing varsity and Don Childs playing for the Jv ' s team, and on the baseball diamond this year we had Bruce Jones and Don Childs. Starring for the girls ' basketball team were Louise Mandell and Dora Messier. Pa e 40 - 3.e IMORTHERn LIGHT This year Pat Welch was our representative to girl ' s state and Jeff McEnroe and Robert Eunice represented us at boy’s state. In this, our third year, we held two very successful dances, one in honor of St. Valentine ' s Day, and the other an unusual dance called “The Barnyard Shuffle.” The main attraction at this gathering was barn dancing. Everyone attending assured us that these two social events were successful and fun was had by all. When summer rolled around and we heard of the Seniors’ plans for an outing, we decided to try it. New Silver Beach was a beautiful picture early in June, with all the Junior Debs sporting their exclusive .swim suits. A perfect day, a perfect time! Ahhh! At last we were the upper crust and example setters of the student body. Big Seniors ! ! ! Marc Nault was chosen our class President; Helen Strong Vice- President; Bruce “Bones” Jones, our money handler; and Jane Lynch. Marc ' s private, private, private secretary. We were well represented on the Red Cap staff during our four years. This year, capable Marilyn Asher was chosen editor and did a splendid job of issuing “our gossip sheet” as often as was possible. The football team was composed of such Seniors as our Captain “Red” Bates, Ercd Frizzell, Ronald “Peewee” Achin, Peter Dean, Don Leary, and “Dink” Childs. “Red” Bates made his third year appearance on the basketball court and he was accompanied by Russel Meyer and “Dink” Childs. We mustn ' t forget the females! Dora Messier played her fourth year of basketball and by the way, this year she was elected Captain. Louise Mandell also played for the varsity team. On December 9, 1949 we held our Senior Play in the High School auditorium before an appreciative audience. “A Date With Judy” was a smash hit and we would like to take time now to thank Miss Mary Erving and Mr. John Bronson for their much appreciated supervision. We wish to congratulate Barb Hunt, Barb Weygand, and Shirl Adams for their fine job of cheering at the football and basketball games. Three lovelier girls were never seen! Congratulations also, to Pam Straker, Rita Eastman, and Betty Andrews who certainly deserve praise for the splendid showing they made at the football games, spring festival, and various parades in which they participated. It was May 27, 19.50 and cars were buzzing up to the door of the “North High Nite Club” by the dozens. Yes, this was our Senior Prom. The good attendance, eye-catching decorations, and sweet music made the dance a complete success. Participating in band and orchestra beween “1949” and “19.50” were Louise Knight, Barbara Shairer, Ann Messier, Richard Magnan, Fred Frizzell, George Azarian, Howard Mason and Robert Funke. — DL — IMORTHERn LIGHT Other organizations in which Seniors took part and worked diligently were the Yearbook, Glee Club, Camera Club, Press Club, Student Council, Student Monitors, Student Librarians, and the Film Department. Well, Barb and I have reviewed all of our historical events and the only thing left now is to get that diploma! ! ! ! These past four years have been successful ones for us, and we wish to thank the faculty. Superintendent Mott, and Principal Leon Regan, for their sound advice. We hope you ' ll miss us. We know we ' ll miss you. THE END j a e 42 LIGHT - ZiLe.

After two and a half weeks of intensive drilling in fundamentals and new plays, the team opened up its 9 game schedule against Milford at Community Field. Weaknesses that showed up in this opening game could be attributed to lack of practice, and lack of game experience. However, in succeeding games the team showed definite im ' provement until it finally found itself in the second half of the season with decisive victories over Mansfield and a rugged Franklin aggregation. A victory on Turkey Day over Attleboro would have been the erowning point of the season. However, the gods did not smile on the Rocketeers on November 24th. Although outweighed and outmanned, the Rocketeers were not outfought. Showing a stubborn defense and a f a e 68 - DL- NORTHERn LIGHT j ' ood passing offense, the North team almost pulled an upset. Next year the shoe may be on the other foot, and hopes are running high that North Attleboro will onee again be a gridiron power in Southeastern Massa- chusetts. Next year Coaeh Malcolm will build his team around a nucleus of “Moe” Everton, “Don” Doyle, the Gay ' s, A1 Spencer, Norm Laroeque, Adam DcFilippo, “Bob” Hall, and “Jim” LaFratta. The seniors on the team were “Red” Bates, Captain; “PeeWee” Achin, Don Leary. “Dinky” Childs, “Rut” Meyers, Fred Frizzell. N.A.H.S. Football Schedule N. A. H. S. 7 Milford 26 N. A. H.

After two weeks they started a fifteen game season against a powerful Braintree team at Braintree by dedicating a new gym. Handicapped by lack of height and inexperienced ball players the Red Rocketeers were not impressive in the won and lost column. However the boys turned in several welbplayed games, particu ' larly against Taunton and Stoughton at home. Although they were outplayed on several occasions they were never outfought. With a nucleus of twenty-two boys returning for next year, it is expected that a very capable club will represent North Attleboro on the basketball court. It is expected that this year’s freshman team will be of tremendous help to next year ' s varsity. The seniors on the team were “Red” Bates and “Dinky” Childs. N. A. H. S. 3 3 N. A. H. S. 27 N. A. H.

In spite of the good start, the Rocketeers were defeated throughout most of the season, as they played some of the toughest teams in the Southeastern Massachusetts area. The lack of experienced players was evidenced in each ball game by consistent errors. “Walt” Main held dowm first base when he was not pitching. At second was lead-off batter, Danny Murphy. Holding dowm the short- stop position was a junior, “Odie” James. Guarding the “hot corner” was “Dinky” Childs, a senior. In left field was Charlie Sullivan, who also pitched. Playing center field w ' as “Rut” Meyer when he was not pitching. In right was “Clip” Cloutier. The starting catcher was “Chuck” Morrill w ' ith Merrill Legg and Ronnie McAvoy, also catching. “Moe” Everton also played outfield along with “Smiley” Laroque, Dick Breed, Paul Rioux, Dick Langillc, Charlie Feid, Kent McMorrow, and Bob Sherliza. “Moe” Everton was also the leading pitcher, assisted by “Rut " Meyer, Charlie Sullivan, “Walt” Main, and “Mike” Childs. The seniors on the team were “Rut” Meyer and “Dinky” Childs. Coaches Malcolm and Coakley spent much time in developing their ball club. We wish them good luck for next year. N. A. H. S.

The orchestra, though small in number, has provided much enter- tainment for different programs with its excellent selection of arrange- ments during the past year. Besides the special assembly periods, the orchestra played for the Senior Play entertainment, the Spring Concert, the Class Day and Graduation exercises. It also travelled to Attleboro for the annual Spring Festival to receive its musical rating. Several talented Senior members will be missed next year and they arc Ann Messier, Louise Knight, Barbara Shairer, Robert Funke, Richard Magnan, Girard Labrie, George Azarian, and Howard Mason. 76 - DL - IMORTHERn LIGHT ScKool If you should hear the stains of martial music emitting from the audi ' torium, you can be sure that it’s the school hand practising for one of it’s many activities. Band ☆ This year the band with it’s five Senior members, George Azarian, Richard Magnan, Fred Frizzell, Howard Mason, and Girard Labrie took part in the Spring Festival, Spring Concert, and also played at many football games. The Drum Majors, three of whom were new, made a fine showing in all their activities - sparkling in their brand new uniforms. Betty Andrews, Pam Straker, and Rita Eastman were the three Senior Majorettes. a e 7 7 NORTHERn LIGHT Glee Club The North Attleboro High School Glee Club completed another successful year with an excellent record of musical entertainment to their credit. Under the directorship of Mr. John Bronson, the Glee Club prepared several renditions for the Founder’s Night Program and the annual Spring Concert. Four of the robust male voices were Seniors and when next fall rolls around their harmonizing will certainly be missed. Those boys are William Moon, Robert Funke, Allan England, and Bruce Jones. The Senior girls have distinguished themselves also by displaying their talent throughout the halls of N. A. H. S. These songbirds are Barbara Hunt, Irene Bourgeois, Shirley Adams, Olive Anderson, Janice Hevey, Irene Stetson, Cecile Clavette, Joyce Collins, Jean Childs, Mary Lou Gulski, Eileen Gamache, Leona Chabot, Helen Carrozza, Louise Mandell and Barbara Shairer. Pa e 78 - JL - NORTHERN LIGHT Spring, Concert The curtain parted. A signal was given. The N. A. H. S. Band hurst forth with the stirring strains of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and once more the annual Spring Concert was presented to the public. The hand played several selections, the first being led by those high- stepping drum majors with their whirling, sparkling batons. One of the most interesting pieces played by the band was “The Big Bad Wolf”, a novelty number. A soprano solo was given by a Senior. Irene Bourgeois, who captivated the audience with her strong, true voice by singing “Yours Is My Heart Alone”. Barbara Shairer, another Senior with hands that fly over the keyboard, played two excellent selections on the piano. There were also two Junior soloists: Joan Murphy, who sang “Love Is Where You Find It”; and Lena Bedard, who played “Nola” on the marimba. The orchestra then presented several numbers, the most novel being “Promenade”. This piece brought out the many interesting and different sounds of the instruments. The Glee Club then appeared on the stage in their colorful long dresses and snappy suits to end the program with several selections. An appropriate closing came when the songsters sang “Short ' nin ' Bread”. The excellent program was presented under the capable direction of Mr. John Bronson. State Festival On Saturday, May 13, two bus loads of North Attleboro musicians set out under the direction of Mr. John Bronson to take part in the annual Spring Music Festival, held this year at Attleboro. The band participated in the parade through the city ending at Capron Park. The units were under the supervision of Mrs. William McGivney and Mr. Berryman Minah. f- u e 9 — jLe — NORTHERn LIGHT Senior Play On the fated evening of Deeemher 9, 1949, the houselights dimmed, the eurtain slowly rose, and a hush fell over the expectant audience while a Senior east of talented actors and actresses waited to announce their presentation of the hilarious play, “A Date With Judy”. The cast, nervous, yet anxious to perform, stepped forth in their roles with such exactness and true feeling that the audience was enthralled by their every word and action. The three-act comedy centered its story around a teen-age miss, Judy Foster who involves her father, mother, younger brother, the maid, and almost everyone else in raising money for the Community Relief Fund. Judy, exceptionally well played by our own Barbara Hunt, de- cided that by entering a number of money-offering contests she could win enough money for the Fund and beat out a school-mate rival. Barbara Wmsoeket, portrayed by cute Thelma McGuire, proceeds to help her. Judy’s fun loving but exasperated parents, so well represented by Jean Childs and John Bevilaqua, are at their wits’ end with so many contests. They are entered in most of them and become very much embarrassed by the confusing results. Randolph, the younger brother, played to perfection by Robert Funke, gets everyone confused and rattled with his witty remarks. The man in Judy’s life, Oogie Pringle, alias Bruce Jones, is really a howl in trying to win the affections of Judy by writing songs about her. Another of Judy’s friends, Mitzi Hoffman, portrayed by Barbara Totten, who with her French accent, wowed the audience and also the theatrical producer, Mr. Martindale, well depicted by Jeff McEnroe, 80 NORTHERn LIGHT Senior Play MISS MARY E. ERVING Director Mitzi “put on airs " in an unsuccessful attempt to capture a Broadway role and also to acquire more money for Judy ' s Community Relief Fund. Hannah, the maid, comically played by Estelle Powers, was about ready to quit her job after such antics as these. Upon the scene arrives the nosy washwoman, Mrs. Hotchkiss and her elocuting daughter, Eloise, portrayed by Patricia Welch and Louise Mandell respectively. Mrs. Hotchkiss is stunned by the appalling hut false news that Mrs. Foster is a bigamist. All that because of those crazy contests! Also astonished at this news is Mrs. Schultzhammer, a haughty and defiant woman played by Mary Lou Gulski. She is from the P. T. A. and demands a complete explanation of these mixed-up happenings. A new boy in town, Rexford M. O ' Connor, acted by Robert LcBlanc. appears on the scene with his kid sister, Susie, played by Irene Stetson. It seems he wants to elope, so Judy consents to being a witness. Woman-hater Randolph has a blind date with Susie and off they go. Before the curtain finally descends, peace is restored to the Foster homestead once more. Judy goes off in a flurry to a dance with Oogie and promises never to enter another contest. At the closing curtain, a thunderous applause rose from the audience. This very gesture assured the cast of its excellent performance. This w ' as one night to be remembered for a long while. Our sincere thanks and appreciation go to Miss Erving who patient- ly struggled with the Seniors to produce this outstanding presentation. Also we wish to thank Mr. Bronson for the musical entertainment provided by his orchestra. - Dke- IMORTHERn LIGHT Red Cap Staff ☆ This year ' s Red Cap has had one of the best showings in years, coming out regularly, once a month, without fail.

The Seniors leaving the staff this year are Marilyn Asher, Editor ' iii ' Chief; Robert Funke and Barbara Totten, Associate Editors; Eileen Gamache, Business Manager; Herbie Sweet, Art Editor; Gloria Lightfoot, Helen Carrozza, Louise Mandell, Bruce Jones, Betty Andrews, Pat Welch, Barbara Shairer and Pam Straker, Reporters; and Jean Childs, Helen Strong, and Cecile Clavette, Collectors. f a e 82 - Vka - NORTHERn LIGHT CKeerleaders The Cheerleaders, i ay in their bright red uniforms, showed their spirit at all the football and basketball games.

Posts were assigned and in the beginning, meetings were held each week to solve any problems concerning the movement of traffic in the corridors. Many of these problems were solved by setting up rules. Now that the monitor system has become more efficient, there are less problems and meetings are unnecessary. Monitors graduating this year are: John Bevilaqua, Pam Straker, Bruce Jones, Jeff McEnroe, Marc Nault, Robert Funke, Pat Welch, Barbara Hunt, Eileen Gamache, Mary Lou Gulski, Marilyn Asher, Ann Messier, William Moon, Robert LeBlanc, Wyman Cooper, and Barbara Totten. - VL - NORTHERn LIGHT y Student Council The Student Council has been especially active this year.

During the course of the year, the Student Council has raised money in several ways: First, there was the sale of tee shirts, sweat shirts, and kerchiefs bearing the emblem of the North Attleborough High School Red Rocketeers; then a successful Valentine ' s Dance was held; and finally book covers with the school emblem on them were sold. Many meetings were held for the planning of these activities. Members of the Student Council who are graduating are: John Bevilaqua, Barbara Hunt, Thcresc Marcil, Cecile Clavette, Marilyn Asher, and Janice Hcvey. a e 85 - VL - NORTHERn LIGHT r The Camera Clubs Newly reorganized this year, the Camera Clubs have made a fine showing.

Many thanks go to these five boys whose efforts have brought about a great number of pleasant experiences for all of us. The one Senior member, Bruce Jones, who has been President for the past three years, has been very ably assisted this year by two Juniors, Robert Blanchard and Fred Van Duyne and two Sophomores, Robert Knowles and Gordon DiRenzo. Press Club Newly organized, the Press Club did not really get going until the middle of the winter. However, this did not prevent it from being one of the most active clubs in school. All its members have kept their eyes open for news and they are completely responsible for the column “High S chool Notes” which appears twice weekly in the “Evening Chronicle. " Student Librarians The Student Librarians, a new institution in N. A. H. S. this year, have been of great assistance. The seven girls, under the expert leadership of Miss Andem, have learned many things about library duties. The Student Librarians have put on two skits during the school year; one for the P. T. A., and one for the student body during assem ' bly. Student Librarians who are graduating this year are Barbara Hunt, Betty Simpson and Nancy Garland. 8 7 IMORTHERn LIGHT LUNCH PHYSICS SHOP FRENCH OFFICE 88 STENOGRAPHY - VL - IMORTHERn LIGHT ENGLISH PROBLEMS OF DEMOCRACY LUNCH MATH OFFICE PRACTICE HISTORY j a e 89 - NORTHERn LIGHT Junior Class This year ' s Junior Class was very active and successful in all its undertakings.
