Text from Pages 1 - 64 of the 1943 volume:
The staff of this issue of the Red and Black wish to dedicate the 1943 Yearbook
to two of Stevens' veteran instructors - Mr. John W. Dow, who has taught his-
tory here for twenty years, sending many more accurate and analytical thinkers
into the world, and to Mr. Lyle W. Ewing, who has diligently served with the
English department for twenty years in an atmosphere that varied from frolic-
somc wit tn profound thought.
These two men are not only members of the faculty at Stevens - they are now
an inseparable part of the school, concrete in their beliefs and character and
among the unforgetable memories of every graduate.

THE RED AND BLACK L7
HIS YEAR, higher education, instead of being a privilege acccrded to those with
the necessary funds, ambition, and brains, has become an unavoidable neces-
sity which confronts every graduating high school student. However, advanced
training has now taken on several entirely new aspects, many of which are wholly
for the good.
In the first place, education now is tending to become more practical in its
teachings, rather than idealistic or theoretical. In the armed forces, in industry,
and even in some colleges, the only phase of a subject taught is that which can be
applied directly upon leaving the training period. This, I think, is one of the trends
for the better, at least in our present day world, because it eliminates that hard
period of changing the theory learned in college into the cold facts and hard meth-
ods typical of life. The leading educators of the country will argue differently,
and many have already protested the omission of many liberal arts subjects from
the college curriculum. Their ideas are based on the fact that we need well round-
ed scholars in order to push forward, as far as civilization in general is concerned.
The point here is that we are not training men and women now to go out into the
world and lift our society up another notch in the ladder of civilization, we are
training everyone now to win this war soon in order to retain our civilization at its
present high level of perfection. Then we can concentrate on saving humanity.
The very fact that we are training young men and Women under this assump-
tion is the best thing that has happened to the young people, as far as a complete
and usable education is concerned. The large industries, clamoring for more ex-
perienced help and anxious to get rid of heavily taxed surplus profits, are offering
exceptionally fine courses to train draftsmen, machinists, and general mechanics.
The armed services are expending millions of dollars making highly trained special-
ists out of young men who never knew a trade before entering the Army or the
Navy. A very great proportion of our men in the armed forces will return to civil-
ian life with a store of knowledge that will support them adequately, if our society
will reorganize itself so as to accommodate these millions. One is now able to re-
ceive the essence of a college education at the expense of the Government. To top
that oi, there are more opportunities than ever for securing the plain "old fash-
ioned" university education, barring any interference by the War Department on
the plans of the young men.
On the whole, the future is bright for the class of forty-three-in fact, it is so
bright at times that one is blinded by the question of which course of action tc
choose. There can be only one answer to this problem. Take the one to which you
are best fitted. There is no time now to grind down the square peg to fit the
This is one case where opportunity doesn't bother to knock-it walks right in
and all but grasps its material. The ultimate goal now is not that of finding an op-
portunity, but that of making the most of the many offered, and this year it isn't
a case of sliding through to get the gravyg either you worki or you don't. To quote
the student body of one of the leading tech schoolsz- 'tYou don't get DOUBLE F
for flat feet-a Double F is a complete failure in the subject and you get it for be-
ing a Tech playboy. Enough of these and you'l1 be just a playboy? And it is only
a short step from playboy to K. P.

By SHIRLEY JOHANNIS and MARY BOUDETTE
S WE, THE CLASS OF '43, stand on the threshold of life, watching the doors
of the past close slowly behind us, the trials and tribulations of four hectic
years pass rapidly in review, Among the parade of memories we find some sad,
some joyfulg all ready to leave their pattern in our hearts for many years to come.
As we charged up the stairs with blank looks on our faces that first exuberant
morn, the halls rang with a gayety that was to be characteristic 'of our class dur-
ing the miraculous days ahead.
All too soon the evening for the dreaded Freshman Reception rolled around.
Garnished with lipstick and appropriate bibs, we sheepishly entered the auditor-
ium to watch the antics of our classmates. Shall we ever forget the modernized
version of Romeo and Juliet, starring Anne Thompson and Claude Preston .....
or the mad sight of Mary Boudette and Douglas Johnston attempting to ride that
With 'tDoug" Johnston as our president, Anne Thompson as vice-president,
Mae Whippen a.s secretary, John Osgood as treasurer, and Morey Miles as our class
adviser, we marched through the remainder of the year, feeling quite proud of our
Freshman Vic Dance, our large representation in the band, and all the extra- cur-
As we swung into our Sophomore year, plans for the Freshman Reception soon
materialized. With a touch of madness and Bruce Robertson, it was pronounced
one of the best welcome mats ever prepared.
THE RED AND BLACK 9
It was during this year that we first established ourselves as a class with drama-
tic ability. "Curses, the Villain is Foiiedj' a dynamic success, starred Dorothy
Loudon as our gallant heroine, Martin Fleit as our dashing hero, and Fred Bailey
as the cursed villain. Barbara Morse played the part of the mother, Bruce Robert-
son and Virginia Blake furnished the play with a startling comedy effect.
This second year the class officers Were: Rodney Davis, president, Anne
Thompson, vice-president, Barbara Morse, secretary, Bruce Robertson, treasurerg
Miss Redden, class adviser.
Suddenly we were Juniors. We could join the ranks of upperclassmen. An
hilarious year was on its way. Our class leaders this year were Guy Wilson, presi-
dent, Jennie Adamovich, vice president, Anna Laskevich, secretary, Phyllis Bailey,
treasurer, Miss Griggs, adviser.
Before we knew it we found ourselves swamped with crepe paper and little
lambs. It was the Junior Prom. Of course we don't want to boast, but it has been
said that it was a prom that will never be ecxualled. Remember that little black
lamb that waltzed across the back of the stage that picturesque evening? sLittle
did we suspect that that lamb was none other than the class of forty-three. Lois
Putnam was certainly an able prophet when she conceived the idea of the tiny
Quite unexpectedly the study halls occupied by Juniors found their numbers
depleted, especially on the last two days of the school week. However, a glance
into the tiny news room upstairs would have shown all the absent members work-
ing rabidly to produce a super "Stevens News" ...... on time. With Barbara
Morse as our preeminent editor-in-chief, some of the merriest issues in the short
history of this little paper managed to get by the censors and through the presses.
We cannot let these records continue without remarking on those days of hot
dogs and football games, cokes and basketball, when our school spirit was brought
into evidence by our grand squad of cheerleaders.
But time goes by, and before we could realize it, we were struggling to lind
enough Juniors not engulfed by too many school organizations to plan the Senior
Reception-the grand finale to three wonderful years. It was during this memor-
able era that the first signs of the wear and tear that we were causing on the nerves
of the faculty became evident. But with fortitude and forbearance they managed
to survive our madcap adventures.
"With notebooks and glasses,
We frequent our classes.
Oh, we live a life of toil .... "
Our Senior year had arrived. We opened the final session of our high school
career by reelecting Guy Wilson as our president. Rodney Davis, Anna Laskevich,
and Robert Steinlield formed his cabinet. Miss Willey and Mr. Howard took on
the dangerous task of advising us through this last year.
Immediately, a committee was chosen to take charge of those Tuesday morning
gatherings. Under the able leadership of "Dot" Loudon as chairman, the committee
saw to it that both an interesting and instructive weekly program was presented.
Days flew into weeks .... and then came the crowning blow: the Seniors
topped off four years of questionable scholastic ability by holding down the bottom
10 THE' RED AND BLACK
rung of the Stevens' academic ladder. But ours was not a gloomy nature and we
asserted ourselves by establishing the well-known "Sock and Buskin," under the
leadership of Miss Richardson. Our first achievement across the footlights was
the assembly play, "New Girl In Town." Using the assembly play as a stepping
stone, the "Sock and Buskin" then went on to present three one-act plays to the
public. The program consisted of a melodrama, "The Widow's Plightj' a comedy,
"Of All Things," and a tragedy, "The Opening of a Door."
In spite of limitations caused by scarcities and priorities, our annual football
dance was a colorful affair. An original touch was added when each dance was
cleverly entitled with the name of a member of our squad.
Incidentally, a large number of our classmates throughout the years have par-
ticipated in basketball, baseball, and hockey, as well as football.
In accordance with a custom inaugurated a number of years ago, the Daily
Eagle invited a Senior student staff to edit the paper for one day. A more memor-
able five hours could not be found in the lives of that small group. Just ask any
one of them!
It was during this year also that the students of Stevens took over the town of
Claremont for a day. The honorable Mr. "Louie" Zullo and Mr. Mitchell Baker
were elected as our worthy town fathers. Being clever politicians they won their
offices by promising everything from fur-lined gutters to steam heated bl-eachers.
But, boys, we haven't seen them yet! Mae Whippen, also from the Senior class,
was our town clerk.
Finally we produced the one and only Senior play, "Foot-loose," with much
youthful ambition and anxiety. Miss Richardson supervised the rendition of the
performance itself, and also the construction of the entire set, upon which long
hours of franctic labor were expended.
Thus our parade of memories ends. And now, inevitably, the doors are finally
swinging shut and we step into the future .....
"The puzzle of life
Is forming before us.
The even and jagged pieces
Fitting together smoothly-
Tell a fascinating story." it

DOROTHY LOUDON and HELEN PILVER
ECAUSE OF THE LAST WAR, priorities on beartraps, brass knuckles, shot
guns, and Manila hemp, we were faced with a desperate situation-no men! !
Having a thorough knowledge of the comic strips-in particular "L'i1 Abner" and
the wiles of Daisy Mae-we took our Hfeudin' guns" to get us a man. Traveling
for two whole days, we finally arrived in Dogpatch, which was now a thriving little
Hearing a booming voice in the distance we turned and spied-No-it can't be!
But yes, it is-"Hairless Joe" Steinfield, shouting, "Step right up girls and enter in-
to the annual Sadie Hawkins Day Race that always gets resultslt' Steiniield, club
in hand, jumped off his soap box and greeted us heartily. Above the roaring can-
non and the booming guns, he .shouted that he would be glad to show us around
the peaceful countryside. On our way to the business section, which consisted of a
general store, an eatin' place, a date bureau, and a few other buildings, we passed
the cheerful abode of Jennie Adamovich. Her boarders, "Lippy" Zullo, Russell
Scott, '4Bob" Lavoie, "Creepy', Koledo, and t'Bull" Mercier, were lined up on the
porch still fighting the battles of history class. Leaving this homey atmosphere we
heard terrific wails from a nearby woodshed. Upon looking into the matter, we
found "Mammy" Barbara Bartlett-still playing the Mother role originated by
Barbie Morse-administering punishment to "Pappy" Stuart Jones for stealing her
12 THE RED AND BLACK
We hurried away and left these two to their misery. Walking on, we heard a
peculiar crunching noise. As Steinfield had no shoes on, we were convinced that
this peculiar Hcrunchf' was coming from elsewhere. Suddenly, a short figure, clad
in her own Dogpatch creation, streaked by. The mystery was solved. This stylish
figure was Mary Boudette, and she had finally made it! As the years passed, so
had her fingernails, but Mary was not discouraged. She had kept right on chewing
and crunching and by this time was rapidly approaching her elbow.
This crunching sound was soon replaced by another strange noise. The sound
of Conga music pierced our ears and looking ahead we .saw a huge sign-
"Answer the call-from Gloria Hall
Learn the conga-the fee is small."
Looking closer we spied peculiar-looking figures frantically racing around-one-
two three kick one two three kick. With dauntless spirit, and fallen arches,
"Glo" still kept on leading her Conga Line-keeping up their courage and assuring
them that this "work-out" was not just a fruitless gesture. "Glo's" class was com-
posed of Sylvia White, Freeman Chellis, Mildred Curtis, Irene Dufresne, Evangeline
Girard, Carl Guild, Gordon Smith, and Lloyd Chapman. Furnishing the accom-
paniment was the now famous Myra McLain, with her guitar. At last we arrived
at the thriving business section. Of all the buildings, the lively little date bureau
attracted us most. With high hopes we gaily tripped up the steps and were con-
fronted by a large sign-
"Don't feel low-you want a beau?
Throw out woe-and come see Moe."
Seated behind his desk sat the fabulous t'Moe', Fleit. We exchanged greetings and
grimaces and sat down as "Moen offered to show us the files. He boasted of
having instigated such matchless matches as Hadwen Stone and Stephena Sako-
vich, Peter Weare and 'tPeggyl' Hill, "Larry" Ring and Marion Westover, Richard
Stone and Phyllis Sciborek, Nicholas Jangel and Lucille Morin.
Although "Moe" was busy as Dan Cupid, he still had time for his private life-
jitterbugging, punning and thinking. -
Outdoors again, the silence was pierced by blood curdling screams coming from
behind a barn. Somewhat reluctantly, we went over and found Gwendolyn Goggin
atop an orange crate gurgling, gagging and shrieking. Between gurgles, G. G. in-
formed us that she was to be a sound effects woman over a coast to coast hook-up-
on "Inner Sanctumfl the squeaking door, in the "Thrive Dog Food Hour," the bark,
on the "Carnation Milk Program," the contented cow.
Jeannette Tremblay, belonging to the t'Dogpatch Society of Hog Callers," has
now worked her way up to the top. She is now the Grand Worthy Matron of the
Hog Callers of Dogpatch. Finally reaching the goal of all hog callers, she has taken
to teaching enthusiastic and admiring students to follow in her bear tracks. Inside
her home lined with trophies and hog's heads we found Jeannette and her pupils
bellowing forth in mighty yelps and howls, literally engrossed in their work.
"Jimmie" Townsend, "Pat'i Crossman, Henry Bresell and Anne Nemcovich were
delighting their fellow students with a hog calling quartet-never to be equaled in
Dogpatch. If this didn't guarantee results, nothing would! Now and then a
member of the quartet was thrown out of key by a jolt in the back caused by a
small boulder from the slingshots of Phyllis Putman and Veronica Supko.
THE RED AND BLACK 13
We left this happy group and were attracted by the sound cf music. Rapidly
approaching, on a donkey, was "Indian Bob" Michaud leading his Medicine Show.
Bob was shouting the praises of his newest invention, "Michaud's Little Humor
Before the show there was to be a jitterbug contest. The music began and the
contest was on! The contestants were "Teddyl' Lewis and John Osgood, who made
a charming couple, against Helen Murphy and "Peggy" Leavitt. We regret that
we were unable to stay until the end, but, having a feeling that it would go on until
the wee hours of the morning, we thought it best to leave. With the beat of "Boogie
Woogie" ringing in our ears, we went back to the Medicine Show. On the stage
were eight tearful girls-"Pat" Lynch, Audrey Mathews, Margaret Sevigne, Lucy
Richardson, "Kay,' Chamberlain, Lois Burrell, Elizabeth Bruce and Ruth Smith.
Suddenly, on bounced "Bob," giving them each a little pink pill. At once the air
was filled with mirthful laughter and glee. Following this miraculous feat, the girls
vigorously stampeded around the stage demonstrating the pleasing results of
Michaud's "Little Humor Pills." We both bought a bottle and turned to leave. As
we did so, we spied Gilda Ellis draped over a hollow tree, munching a t'Little Humor
Pill,'l reading Robert SteinHeld's latest book, "Silence is Man's Best Virtue."
Farther down the road, we came to Hazel Stone's luncheonette with a cemetery
adjoining conveniently. In the drive was Dr. Heath Bourdon's car. It seemed that
Shirley Bonneau and Bruce Robertson, celebrating Shirley's birthday, had dined at
Hazel's and were suffering from ptomaine poisoning, Heath had been in there two
days trying to diagnose the case. Outside, patiently waiting, was "Dick" McCusker.
Having raised his embalming rates two days previously, he was beaming from here
to there sitting and drooling! In the hearse keeping the engine warm were "Dick's"
men "Friday," USaturday," and i'Sunday": Cedric White, Edward Provost and Har-
The latest addition to Dogpatch since the last war was a modernized airplane
factory. Inside, sitting on various fuselages-wrenches in hand-sat Thelma Mc-
Swain, Phyllis Bailey, and Shirley Johannis-Hthe inseparable three," cheerfully
yelling back and forth from wing to gun and from gun to gas tank. They were
arguing over a cutting remark made by Vernon Briggs in his latest book, "A
Woman's Place Is in the Home."
On our way to the executive's olfice we passed Jane Pastore, Muriel Zelniker,
Anna Sakovich, "Dot" Osgood, and Stacia Kebalka busily pounding away at their
typewriters, The girls usually have a gum-chewing contest every week, but they
were forced to put an end to this cheerful pastime. A week previous, in a moment
of excitement, Stacia had chewed a bit too vigorously and for reasons beyond her
control, her gum had landed in the blonde tresses of Anna Laskevich. Now, Anna,
bald Cbut cooler that wayl was constantly thinking how she could get even.
We left them to their work and went into the main office. There we found
"Doug" Johnston seated behind the president's desk. "Dough was still pondering
over his aeronautics, but despite his troubles he had become a regular executive.
Time was flying and in order to get back in time for the race, we left the fac-
tory. On our way to the aforementioned race, we passed Levi Johnston's Statue
Shop. Outside, we saw Levi molding a statue of the 'tModern Thinker." Posing
for this statue was "Mac" McKinnon-seated on a marble slab, with his brow
wrinkled and chin in hand.
i4 THE RED AND BLACK
Missing Helen, I looked down and saw her lying on the ground, the victim of a
baseball from the bat of "Bobby" Dole. Helen recovered quickly and the two of us
raced across just in time for the ninth inning between Dogpatch and Skunk Hollow.
The Dogpatchers were led by the capable and mighty Bernard Rosinski, and the
Skunk Hollowers were aptly led by "Herbie" Chase. In front of the bleachers
cheering the Dogpatchers on to victory were Colleen Murphy and Mae Whippen.
The latter's mind was occupied by Slugger "Bunny" Wilson who was steaming
'round third, Stars on the Skunk Hollow team were "Dick" Farnsworth and Robert
Curtis. As bat boys for the teams were Euclide Laporte and Francis Fontaine who,
when things got boring, hit each other over the head-just for laughs.
We left just before the decisive rap. When we were once again on the street,
we saw the two wise men of Dogpatch, Rodney Davis and "Ted" Bailey. They were
arguing whether 1 X 0-1, or if l x l-0. Our first thought was to help them, but
realizing that we ourselves did not know the answer, we merely asked them the
shortest and quickest way to the Sadie Hawkins Day, They advised us to hire
Juanita Arnold's cabg we did this and finally arrived! Out sprinted "Kayl' Ed-
wards and, with a blast from her gun, the racers were off! ! Through clouds of
smoke and dust we saw them racing down the Held. On the sidelines stood hopeful
parents of the also hopeful girls, screaming words of encouragement, and quoting
the words of John Paul Jones, "I have not yet begun to flight."
In the lead, fast on the heels of Claude Preston, was Florence McKane. Close
behind "Flossie" was "Kayo" Osgood-still giggling despite the fact that she wasn't
making much headway. Next came Lois Putnam and Anne Thompson, neck 'n neck,
puffing away for dear life. Dragging along behind were Pauline Doten, Stella
Chocka, "Rae" Blumberg, and Virginia Blake, hoping if they waited long enough
that they might grab "Mike" Baker and Dean Smith passing on the second lap.
We had really come to enter the race, but after we saw the stiff competition and
all that we would have to go through, we, like the fox and the sour grapes, decided
that we didn't want a man anyway.

E, THE CLASS OF 1943, of Stevens High School, in the town of Claremont,
the county of Sullivan, the state of New Hampshire in the United States of
America, being in good health and of a sound and disposing mind and memory, do
make and declare this to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking and an-
nulling all wills heretofore made.
1. To Mr. Doody and Mr. Lord, we leave our sincere appreciation for the kind

As the figures below show, the '42 football season was not outstandingly victor-
ious. However, the Stevens lads managed to beat Springfield by one point for the
only victory of the year at the local field.
One of the most spectacular duels of the season proved to be a tie with Keene
in retaliation for the severe defeat suffered earlier at their hands.
However, the boys deserve credit for their fine spirit and perseverance in the
face of such insurmountable odds.

On the whole, the 1942-43 basketball season was a very successful one. There
were no outstanding duels this yearg every game had a' large element of suspense
in itself. The team was led by Captain Bernard Rosinski, who was ably supported
by a well experienced group.

The prospects for this spring's baseball team are not very bright. The war, as
with everything else, has wreaked its havoc with Coach Parker's nine. In spite
of the fact that they are hampered by inexperienced' batteries and green snaggers,
the boys seem to be holding their own to an astounding degree so far. We .wish
them plenty of success in finishing the season.

Among the earlier sports for girls was hockey-both class and varsity-under
the capable leadership of Miss Dorothy Minor. In class hockey the Juniors dis-
played a well-organized team and proved victorious in the contest. All the games
scheduled for the varsity team were cancelled with the exception of one-that with
Newport, N. H. Although our girls played a good game while at Newport, they
were defeated 4-1 by Towle whose unusually good team displayed excellent team-
work. At a return game, however, our girls tied Towle, 1-1. The team ffollows:
Lena Parrotto, Wanda Cahalan, Katharine Edwards, Barbara Bartlett, Eleanor
Pierce, Irene Hamel, Mary Boudette, Theresa Chase, Lois Burrell, Rilma Marshall,

One of the highlights of the sports year was the Institute of Physical Fitness
held here at Stevens. Under the capable leadership of Miss Marjorie Bateman of
Keene Teachers' College, a select group of girls demonstrated a battery of victory
corps exercises to the rest of the girls in the student body.

The girls this year had to give up varsity basketball, but this, by no means,
meant giving up the sport. Rather, the girls organized themselves into five inde-
pendent teamsg namely, the WAACS, WAVES, SPARS, WOWS, and WAFS. Each
team played a total of twelve games. The champions were the WAFS, who won
seven games and lost five. Those composing the various teams were as follows:

MOTTO: "THE PLAY'S THE THING"
In the early days of winter a group of some thirty-five seniors held a meeting
for the purpose of organizing a senior dramatic club.
A committee was elected to draw up a constitution. The finished product was
read and approved not long afterward.
After two or three meetings, it was decided to extend an invitation to twenty-
iive juniors to join our club.
We settled down to begin work on three plays which were presented to the
the public in February. They were: 'tOf All Thingsj' a comedy, "The Opening of
a Door," a tragedy, and 'The Widows Plightj' a melodrama. They were admirably
presented and received.
Immediately followed try-outs and selection of the cast for the annual Senior
Play, called 'Toot-loose". It was presented to capacity houses on both evenings of
April 14 and 15.
. And to Miss Nona Richardson, we would like to express our thanks for work-
mghloliig patient hours with us. It has been a pleasure to know her and to work

The play, "Foot-loose," written by Charles Q. Burdette was adapted for young
people to produce. It centers around the Early family, consisting of mother and
dad, two sons and two daughters. After much persuasion from the children, the
parents decide to take a trip to South America and to leave the younger set to their
own devices. Each young person runs into many difficulties, but they all succeed
in pulling themselves out. A
This play was more serious than other plays have been in the past, yet had the
right amount of laughter needed to make the play a success.

Bailey, Dorothy Loudon, Guy Wilson, Virginia Dobish, Dean Smith, Mae Whippen,

activities, the club presented an assembly play, "Who Murdered Who ?", a mystery-
comedy in one act. The plot centers around a Wealthy bachelor who mistakes a
well-meant neighbor's Warning of his draft board's intentions for a death threat.
The results are one hilarious episode after another. Members of the cast included:

grams, Navy Day exercises, the Senior Play, Class Day, and the annual concert in
The band with its two units, the marching band and the concert band, has
well earned the title of the most distinguished extra-curricular activity at Stevens.
Both the marching band, with its original formations on the football field, and
the concert band, with the stirring renditions of its several performances, have
proved their ability to hold this title.
