You will discover that education is a never-ending process which will continue as long as you live. May I leave with you the philosophy, expressed in the following quotation, which has comforted me on many occasions: “DON’T LET IT WORRY YOU " If your efforts are criticized, you must have done something worthwhile. “If someone calls you fool, go into silence and meditate. “If the world laughs at you, laugh right back. It’s as funny as you are. “If you have tried to do something and failed, you are vastly better off than if you had tried td do nothing and succeeded. — Texas Parent-Teacher” Mr. J. Turner Hood, Jr. Superintendent The Twenty-third Psalm The diploma sheet is signed. Administration LONG BE REMEMBERED THE CLASS OF ' 1959: It is a pleasure to have the privilege of writing these few paragraphs for your yearbook. I am sure that you realize that you are the first graduating class from North Reading High School to have received all twelve years of your education in our school system. I believe that your theme “Memories” is a most appropriate one, for you have been a part of the tremendous growth that has characterized the school system of this town. You have seen a one- building school system overflow into the Grange, Legion, and Town Halls and finally resort to a double- session basis so that all students could be housed. You have seen the agonizing delays with the building of the high school. In September, 1957, you entered the new building and returned to a single session. You have seen the school grown in slightly over one year from a mere building into a functioning high school. The above mentioned developments have afforded the Class of 1959 many unique experiences, both of the unhappy and happy variety. You have participated in the growing pains of the last few years. You have experienced frustrations and delays that at times seemed without answer. However, you have had the satisfaction of participating in the solution of many of the problems and in the establishment of traditions that will sex-ve as guideposts to future classes. You have memories that will provide many pleasant interludes as the years pass by. Fortunately, the pleas- ant memories will soon crowd from your mind the less desirable ones. The truly important incidents will re- place the trivial. I am sure that you will feel justifiable pride in your part in the development of the North Reading High School. In conclusion, I wish each and every one of the gi ' aduates of 1959 the utmost success in whatever en- deavor that he or she may choose Very truly yours, Daniel C. Boothby Principal “Your attention, please!’’ “Take a letter!” Mr. Daniel C. Boothby Principal Good news tonight! YOUR HELP WILL ENGLISH DEPARTMENT Miss Anna M.

On this, June 12, 1959. the Class of ’59, North Reading High School of North Reading, Massachusetts, signed the foregoing instrument in our presence, declaring it to be their last will and thereafter as witnesses thereof we eight, at their request, in their presence, and in presence of each other, hereto subscribe our names. Ann Werner, Chairman Lovina Bourne Mildred Christie Joyce Pothier Diane Galley Ethel Chisholm Mary Fano Harold Pike 35 Class History In September 1954, our river began its journey to the ocean. As a class, we certainly witnessed all of the hardships of a crowded school in an ever growing community. This was our very first year of high school, but the question was, “Would we ever be a part of a real high school?” Our activities as fresh- men were very limited. Our schooling consisted of half day sessions. There were no social events at this time. The river then becomes rapids, and we find the going rough. Most of our studying must be done at home. Attaining those high grades necessary for entering colleges and business schools was not easy for any of us. Mostly work, little play, describes our sophomore year. With the assistance of Mr. Boothby everything began to have a brighter outlook. We chose our school colors, elected class officers, and organized a Student Council. How fascinating it was to watch the construction of our very own high school ! It was to be the first high school that North Beading ever had. Now we were destined to be the first class to complete tweleve years in the North Beading school system. In the fall of 1957 the doors of “N. R. H. S.” were finally opened. We were entering as juniors, which added to the glory of it all. Everyone was confused and lost in this big, beautiful building. Maps came in quite handy. The rooms began to settle down, and we gradually got organized. At last, the course was straight and the sailing smooth. The football season won a lot of publicity for the new school. We were just starting out and did well considering all the planning that had to be done. There were no patterns set by classes ahead of us. We were organizing everything for the first time. All of our games had to be played away, as our field was not yet ready. This did not hinder us at all, though, as the rooting led by the newly picked cheerleaders, brought our team to victory at more than one game. At the end of the season, we had our first social event of the year. This was the Cheer- leaders’ Dance, and it was most successful. One of our first objectives was the election of class officers : Richard Walsh, president : Laurice Puglia, vice-president : Barbara Moore, secretary: and Lorraine Long, treasurer. From then on money-making projects were at the top of the list. In April, juniors and seniors could be seen rushing around trying to get everything ready for the first Junior-Senior Prom to be held in North Reading, “Stairway to the Stars.” It was a colorful affair, with the school cafeteria prettily decorated to give the illusion of a castle in the sky. September, 1958, we were finally seniors sailing down the last stretch of the river to graduation. We confidently elected leaders to compass us through our final year: Gus Lamont, president; Laurice Puglia, vice-president; Judy Leighton, secre- tary; and Edson Larkin, treasurer. “Love and Lollipops,” the theme for the Cheerleaders ' Dance, wrapped up an exciting football season. The dance was held on November 2G, and it was brightly decorated in red and white. A comedy, “All in the Family,” was presented and met with the approval of everyone. This was a great deal of fun, backed by a lot of hard work. As seniors, we maintained the Norehisc Girls’ Club and Stenroh Boys’ Club. Our advisors were Mrs. Dooley and Mr. Lazenby. At the first meeting, officers were elected. Our luncheon meetings were held every Monday. December found us frantically studying for those ever ap- proaching mid-year exams. Even though we were slightly up- set with these, basketball started and happy excitement was in the air once again. Our enthusiastic cheerleaders and loyal spectators all turned out to encourage the players. A fair share of wins and losses made Friday night dates more fun. As we progressed into spring, the main sports were baseball, track, archery, and softball. The long-awaited Senior Prom was getting nearer every day. We all worked hard at decorations, refreshments, and enter- tainment. Along with the prom came the sudden realization that we were enjoying our last exciting days of our high school career. Getting measured for caps and gowns gave us a closer feeling as a class. We were all too aware of the fact that pretty soon we would go our separate ways. Our last opportunities for gathering together as a class were Baccalaureate, a beautiful but serious occasion, Class Day, a hilarious day where we discovered many of our hidden talents, and finally Graduation. Just as our river has ended to join in with the ocean, so have our twelve memorable years in the North Reading Schools. The little river will be swallowed up in the great ocean, and our small class will be lost in this huge world. We may never see some of our classmates again, but we will take our diplomas with a smile ; and look forward to whatever may be awaiting us in the future. 36 Class Poll Favorite Name — John, Debbie Pet Peeve— Homework Favorite Food— Spaghetti Favorite Male Singer — Pat Boone Favorite Saying — “You better believe it!” Favorite Class — Office Practice Favorite Sport — Football Favorite Car — Ford Favorite Actress — Debbie Reynolds Favorite Actor — Tony Curtis Favorite Movie — “The Vikings” Favorite Period — Lunch Favorite Teachers — Mr. Burns, Mrs. Delaney Favorite Color— Blue Favorite P.

Our future was go- ing to be made known now for the first time in history. For you see, kind readers, a great deal of independent research in the field of “phycho-prog- nosis” has been carried on unknown to the rest of us poor mortals in North Reading’s senior class by our learned colleague, Wayne Face. The results of his laborious study are to be revealed now by means of this ominous-looking contraption reposing on Mr. McGrail’s lab tables. On this March 20, 1959, the members of the class gathered around the huge steel machine in the center of Mr. McGrail’s lab. At last the future could be seen; and amid the confusion, lab assistant, Larry Bernat, worked the dials and knobs for control. The sounds that the machine uttered were indescribable! But at long last the picture screen began to come into focus. Why it’s Eileen Connors, but what is this? She’s riding in a trolley car! And those clothes . . . floor-length dress, knee-high boots and that hat — too silly for words! I thought this was to foretell the future. This looks more like 1909. This squeaky, horse-drawn trolley car with its rattling windows, horsey smells, dirty plush seats and its crowded aisles looks vbry strange, indeed. The happy conductor controlling the horses is that expert driver, Ned Larkin. Stumbling down the aisles collecting fares is A1 Kenrick (the world’s longest- lashed fare collector!) The conductor brings the car to an abrupt stop in front of a department store. Several of the passengers alight from the vehicle and make their way into the store. The passengers who we can see on the tiny screen in the machine are unfamiliar. No . . . wait a minute — it’s Harry Lark- in. What a get-up!! He’s wearing a dark suit, hig h- collared shirt, grey spats, derby hat, complete with vest and tie and a diamond-studded stickpin spark- ling in the sunlight. The sign over the door is barely visible, but it seems to say, “Jones Brothers ' Merchandising Mart.” This department store certainly doesn’t look like any of the ones we have been in recently: no fancy lights, no air conditioning, no music and no escala- tors! A very distinguished-looking gentleman is walking towards us, and everyone can recognize him as Walt Geswell Walt looks very busy and a sign on a nearby door tells us that he is now ' the chief purchasing agent in the Stays and Bustles Department. His able assistant, Chris Park, hopes to succeed him some day. The picture suddenly switches, and we see a rec- reational area. A tennis game is under way with Millie Christie and Angela Sarno gracefully hitting the ball over the net with their rackets. Watching on the side lines are Barbara Martyn, Marion Silva, and Mary Fano, proudly displaying their new candy- striped silk shirt waists. Near the corner of the screen we can see the “ole swimmin’ hole.” There Nick Nutter and Bob Macomber can be seen wading in their vivid, bright red and white striped one- piece swimming outfits! Dotty Imlay and Ann Wer- ner can be seen practicing for the annual swimming meet. The cop-on-the-beat is none other than Bob Wells. The screen blurs up, and nothing is visible. Well, I guess the machine just gave up! After some squeaks and squawks, the picture comes back into focus, and it looks like some sort of shed. Through the open door we can catch a glimpse of Paul Dorsey and Bill Ceaser — two great automotive designers. They are working on that new invention called an automobile. Paul’s secretary, Barbara Moore, is busy taking notes as the plans are being perfected. Gus Lamont can be seen trying very hard to install a muffler and a tailpipe, but with a great deal of dif- ficulty! Something outside seems to have their at- tention — of course, Judy Leighton, Richie Hoyt, Lor- raine Long and her known admirer on bicycles-built- for two. It appears they’re on their way to a picnic- Mmmmmm. . . After the machine takes us on a mad scramble through many towns, buildings and places which cannot be recognized, the machine focuses on the corridor of a professional building.

The machine is off on another mad adventure through the past. On the screen now we can see a one-room schoolhouse. The impressive-looking schoolmaster is Reed Haley. Reed is attired in his Oxford-grey suit, resplendent with its shiny knee patches and adorned with elbow re- inforcements. (This, you understand, is the one and only suit his teacher’s salary can afford). The bare walls, pot-bellied stove of the Campbell House are a far cry from the modern building we are now in! He beams graciously as a comely ma- tron, accompained by protesting triplets, advances to register her “happy” brood. Listening quietly we learn our comely matron is Mrs. Judith (Caldwell) Van Graham, who insists that Johnny, Mike and Ann be given plenty of number work! Before the school- master can recover his customary composure, after his talk with our audacious matron, he is beset by still another problem in the from of dapper, little Frederick Heselton, Esquire. His daughter, Eloise (much absorbed in the antics of her slingshot) is to be enrolled in this year’s second grade. Dashing in late is Mrs. Paula (Blanchard) Filler with Eddie, Jr., complete with his velveteen Lord Fauntelroy suit. Junior keeps insisting that it is Chemistry II and not Chemistry I that he should be taking. Scarcely had we ascertained the significance of this precocious child’s remark, when our attention is directed to a masculine voice that we recognize as that of Mr. Boothby’s over the P. A. 39 “Your attention, please. Your attention, please. It gives me great pleasure to an- nounce to the student body that I have just received an official communique from Presi- dent Dwight D. Eisenhower. It states that he has this day made the following appoint- ments: Ann Turilli: Good-will ambassador to Italy; Lauriee Puglia: Special Presidential recommendation for a four-year Rhodes scholarship; Diane Galley: Hairdresser-in- chief of all visiting ambassadors’ wives; Joyce Pothier: Sixth assistant typist in charge of Presidential information ; Becky Bryant : Student representative to the Dior shops in Paris; Linda Caulk: Official inter- ior decorator in charge of all Washington’s public buildings. I am sure that I express the sincere congratulations of the whole stu- dent body to these six girls who have brought this great honor to North Reading High School. Congratulations and good luck ! That is all.” In the excitement of th announcements, the machine and its travels are forgotten. However, a sudden loud boom recalls our at- tention and once again a strange image flashes on the screen. Three attractive young ladies in bloomers, carrying pickets, are pa- rading in front of the White House. These courageous suffragettes, Meri Haselton, Dianne Black, and Phyllis Brennan, are pav- ing the way for the equal rights amend- ment. They certainly are making good use of their history background. Suddenly vibrations shake the room ; a jet from Hanscom Field has once again broken the sound barrier, and now our “goofy” machine does go haywire! A sudden explosion and a few screams from the femin- ine members of our class appropriately end the career of Wayne’s invention. Mr. McGrail’s consoling words of advice to Wayne are, “ ‘When more materials come in,’ we’ll see what we can do about correct- ing your errors so that your machine can see into the future!!” 40 Memo ties Football victories . . . first home game . . . report cards . . . looking forward to gradua- tion . . . getting our picture proofs . . . foot- ball rallies . . . cheerleading . . .
