Four years have passed since our class entered Stevens High School. For the most
part we went through our years as underclassmen with little thought of the great
conflict around us. We studied very little because we thought of other things to do.
We finally realized, during the latter years of our schooling, that our country was
at war. New courses in science and mathematics were added to the curriculum to
prepare the boys in our class for the armed forces. While these new courses helped
us mentally, a required course of gymnastics helped us physically. No senior will
forget the sore legs, stiH muscles, and swollen hands caused by the daily workout
in the gym.
The number in our class has decreased considerably because of the war. Some
of our classmates have gone to work in our defense factories, but the Army and
Navy have taken a greater toll. Fifteen boys left us during the winter, others have
just gone recently, and still more will leave soon after graduation. Of the few
remaining boys and the girls many will enter a college during the coming fall. A
large group of girls will become nurses, while others will remain in Claremont to
meet the demand for workers in the stores and factories. The class of '45 will be
swallowed up by the tide of war in no time.
VVhat will happen to us after the war is over? In the not-too-distant future,
the boys in the service will return to civilian life. The G.I. Bill of Rights provides
a guiding light for them through this period of social and economic unrest. Blany
of the qualified boys who wish to enter a college will have a great opportunity
awaiting them, as the government will pay all expenses. A hard struggle for a
secure place in the future confronts the rest of the class, for after the war the
servicemen will have "high priority" on jobs.
The problem is not only up to the young people themselves but is also the
problem of every town and city in America. Post-war planning commissions are
being set up all over the country. The commissions have met with leading figures
of industries and agriculture to see how many people they can employ after the
war. Many new things will aid us in the post-war world. The war industries will
switch back to peacetime work. The great demand for automobiles. mechanical
refrigerators, and electrical appliances will reconvert many of the present indus-
tries and thus keep them functioning after the war. The future of America, eco-
nomically and socially, lies in the hands of the people and the government, and
the Class of 1945 will have to do its part in bringing about conditions favorable

It all started in the dim past of 1941.
Ah yes, 1941! That was a big year in
the history of the world: the year
when the United States was dragged

started out as freshmen at Stevens
As we were a very serious minded

us to be the honored guests at the an-
nual Freshman Reception. This did
not turn out to be a general massacre
of the freshmen by the sophomores as
we had expected, and "a good time
was had by all.' Throughout the rest
of the year we could attend various
other dances given by the other
classes. We reciprocate-d by giving a
few "View dances during the course of
the year. These "View dances were not
gala events. but then our treasury was
not filled to overflowing.
Please, dear reader, do not get the
idea that all we did during our fresh-
man year was dance, for besides the
dances we had various other things in
which we could participate. such as
band, orchestra, chorus, and various
sports. Of course along with these
extra-curricular activities we had to
attend our various classes, but as the
old saying goes, "Into each life some
rain must fallf'
Just as we were getting to know our
way around Stevens we were sent
home for our summer vacation. This
was done so that we might forget some
of our newly-acquired knowledge and
thus make roon1 in our respective
craniums for three more years of
During ,112 there were many famous
battles going on all over the world.
Before we knew it we were again in
school and had taken our positions for
the coming battle with learning.
In order not to be caught off guard
we had our class officers elected be-
fore many weeks had passed. They
were: President, Dana Herbert, vice-
president, Donald Bartlett, secretary,
Martha Mitchellg treasurer, Richard
Hadley, and adviser, Miss Louise
VVe wasted no time in wreaking
our revenge on the Class of ,44 by
playing host to the Class of ,46 at the
Freshman Reception. But as in years
past no one was hurt, and we were
satisfied with sweet revenge.
This year we reorganized the Sopho-
more Dramatic Club and for assembly
put on a successful play entitled "Who
Murdered Whof, This year we also
had our representatives in the chorus,
band, orchestra, 'fStevens News." and
the various athletic teams.
When summer vacation time came
around again, great advancements
could be seen in our educational quali-
fications. For by now many of the
class of '45 were quite proficient in the
act of procuring make-up cards and
excuses. lVIore than this, some of us
even knew something about our
Nineteen hundred and forty-three
saw the eviction of the Germans from
Africa and the start of the invasion of
Italy by the Allies. As invasions seem-
ed to be the prevailing note of this
year in the war, we got set for a little
invasion of our own, namely, the doors
of Stevens High.
Before long we had again duly
elected and sworn into office our class
officers. They were: President, Donald
Bartlett, vice-president, Dahl Hanseng
secretary, Claire Rouillardg treasurer,
Arnold Shulinsg and adviser, Miss
This year we sponsored two dances,
the Junior Prom and the Senior Re-
ception. Nluch to everyone's surprise
except our own they both proved to
be successful. Not only did we give
two successful dances this year but
we also had members of our class in
nearly every extra-curricular activity
Not only did we back our country
by buying war bonds and stamps, but
we began to give boys to fight for our
country. WVhen the end of the year
came around, our honor roll already
had six names on it. But we were
lucky. and most of the boys were
allowed to stay for their senior year.
Once again vacation time rolled
around, and we were free once more.
As in all the years of our high school
career, we again went to school with
the echoes of world-shaking events
still ringing in our ears. For 344 saw
the invasion of Europe and many
other great victories by the Allies.
This year, as in years past, we set a
precedent that was followed by every-
one all over the United States. We
held an election, but while the rest of
the country re-elected the President of
the United States we elected a new set
of class ofhcers. They are: President,
John Batchelderg vice-president, Gor-
don Davisg secretary, Nlargaret Breed,
treasurer, Gordon Holmes: and ad-
visers, hfrs. Bucko. Bliss Willey. and
Following our usual custom, we put
on another very successful dance. the
Football Dance. and the senior girls in
the Home Economics Department put
on a successful Home Economics
Dance. The Home Economics girls
also organized another Boston Club
Besides being active in all the extra-
curricular activities, some of our class
attended a meeting of the Legislature
at Concord, while others in the class
edited the UEagle', for one day.
We really went in Hheavyu for
drama this year, as some of the class
resurrected 4'Sock and Buskinf' Our
class play was a comedy in three acts,
entitled HSpring Greenf' Under the
capable leadership of lWrs. Bucko and
with the line performance of the stu-
dent actors, the play was one of the
most successful senior plays ever given
We also had two splendid concerts
given this year by the seniors and
members of the other classes. These
were the band concert, given by the
members of the band, and the choral
concert, given by the chorus with the
accompaniment of the orchestra.
But now with our graduation We
come to the parting of the Ways.
Stevens and its faculty will stay to
teach oncoming students, while we
will step out into the world to try to
do our part in cleaning up and return-
ing the world to its normal peaceful
standards. The Class of '45 has been
what you might call a "War babyf,
Our start at Stevens saw the begin-
ning of our countryis participation in
the war. lVIay our last days at Stevens
see our inevitable victory imminent.

Feeling in the mood for adventure, I
jumped into my rocket ship and start-
ed turning the dial that would guide
the ship to its destination. Undecided
as yet where to go, I glanced at the
map of the universe which hung on
the walls. Where to? lVIars? Venus?
The Kfoon? Saturn? The World of To-
morrow? Ah! that's the place! The
dial clicked and I was on my way.
The WVorld of Tomorrow was the
universal capitol, the seat of the uni-
versal court, and the setting of the
annual universal fair.
I landed at the rocketport, where
the ship was overhauled by a crowd of
mechanics under the capable direction
of Leigh Damren. I chatted for a while
with Leigh and found that I had
arrived just in time for the opening
day of the universal fair. Accordingly,
I decided to get to bed early in order
not to miss any of the excitement on
the morrow. For dinner I feasted on
concentrated food tablets. perfected
by Nfarcotte and Marro, Inc.. famous
dietitians. and then went to bed.
I 'rose early the next morning and
went to the fairgrounds. The judges
for all competitive events were to be
military and naval figuresg namely.
Generals Wayiland Bailey. Richard
Aldrich Hadley. Dana Herbert. and
Admirals Gordon Davis. Kenneth
Howe. and Zigmund Smolnik.
The first competitive event was a
horse race. Among the contestants
listed were James Kibbey's 6'Pridc of
Cornish? Donald DeCamp's "Fleet-
footfy and Richard Allen Hadley's
"Spirit of Green lIountain.', Of course
"Pride of Cornishv won by miles.
As I was leaving the race track.
my portable electro-loudspeaker an-
nounced the winner of the weight-
lifting contest. I was surprised to hear
that the winner was Ray Brody with
a record of 523 pounds. which just
goes to show that Hmiracles never
ceasef' It seems that, since leaving
school, Ray had been taking Atlas
treatments and was now commonly
known as i'Brody the Brutef,
I next visited the agriculture de-
partment of the fair. This was super-
vised by Clyde Cossingham and Ken-
neth Cram, who explained that they
merited their position because they
were the inventors of a radio-con-
trolled robot that did all the work of
They also told me about a football
game to bc held in the afternoon. I
arrived at the field just in time to see
the players run out on the field.
Among them I recognized John Pin-
ette, who, having retired from the
Navy, was now playing professional
football. The class of '45 was also rep-
resented by other such famous All-
Americans as Bill Scott, alias f'The
Player Without a Weakness,', and
Next, I visited the winter part of
the fair. There I recognized Donald
Bartlett on the skating rinks, who,
having graduated from figure eights,
was writing his name in hieroglyphics.
I also noticed Frank VVadleigh and
Jacqueline lNIcKenzie, King and Queen
of Iceland, brushing up on their act.
The ski-jump was just a step away,
so I watched the contest. Gordon
Holmes and James hIcCusker got the
prize when they jumped 214 feet, arm
in arm. Louis LaVaude and Lyle
Chandler got honorable mention by a
jump of 159 feet with their skis on
After that performance the fair
closed for the day, so I visited a near-
by night chrb. I was conducted to a
table by Chester Richards, headwaiter
of the establishment. He told me that
the club was owned by Charles Cur-
rier and that the food and drink were
of the best, being prepared by such
able cooks as lNIarilyn Pullen, Rose
Obymako, Gail Hancock, and Rachel
Blanchard. After a few preliminaries,
Barney lVIcCusker appeared on the
stage and sang his version of f'Bar-
nacle Bill, the Sailor? Naturally, the
women all immediately swooned, but
it was interesting to note the trend
toward manly singers, rather than the
undergrown, skinny type.
As I was sipping my orange juice,
who should arrive but Donald Green-
wood? He 'told me that he was out of
a job right now, but he had been a
tight-wire performer and had special-
ized in a backward somersault until
one night the wire let him down. That
ended his career as a tight-wire artist.
Next on the program was a number
by Dick Bush and his band. It seems
that Dick had interested himself in
the education of the poor and had
organized his own band, which he
called f'The East-Side Pepper Potsf'
It was really quite a racket. The assist-
ant director of the band was Joan
Lord. Her instrument was a combina-
tion piano and trombone. She played
the piano with her hands and blew on
the trombone with her mouth. This
eliminated the need for one of the
trombone players, who were hard to
As the band started to play, I no-
ticed several couples dancing at the
other end of the room. Among them,
I saw several of my old high school
pals, namely, Edward Balch and Lee
Nault, Dahl Hansen and Nancy Kuz-
mich, Rebecca Jacobs and Alfred
Hoidahl, and John Batchelder and
I left the club and went to my hotel.
When I got to my room, the maid,
Jean Pinkham, told me that Nfarshall
Gelfand had called and left an invita-
tion for me to visit his movie industry.
The next day when I arrived at the
studios, his secretary, Sylvia Edwards,
informed me that he was in conference
with several of his best actresses about
the parts in a new movie. These act-
resses included Barbara Wilmarth,
Alice Schriber, Claire Rouillard, Mar-
garet Perry, Beryl Isham, Bette Gold-
berg, and Bette Berry. It seems he
held those conferences quite often, but
who wouldnft? Sylvia also told me
that he was the employer of Beverly
Woodward, considered the most beau-
tiful actress on the screen, and that
she had had so many proposals for
marriage that she was sometimes
called the 'iQueen of Diamonds."
"Moe,s Movies, Incfl was a very large
concern and employed about 5000
people, some of whom I knew. Some
of his script writers were Dorothy
Elliott, Virginia Dunn, Clara Chellis,
Barbara Long, Florence Zigmann, and
Charlotte Hague. Make-up artists for
women included Barbara Stone. Emily
Johnson, and Eleanor Bartlett. Make-
up specialists for men included Dorlon
Picard, John Kaniel, and John Morin.
The company had a string of very
capable male actors. Among them
were John Sawchik, Bill Lovejoy.
Jack Gardner, and Guido Baldacei.
I met Arnold Shulins, a movie scout,
in the studio. and he invited me to
accompany him on a talent search. He
took me to a tall. streamlined build-
ing which was the home of the HlVIodel
Agency." It struck me that Arnold
must have made quite frequent visits
to this place. since the elevator girl.
Rosie Costa, knew exactly where he
wanted to get off. As we entered the
waiting room, I saw Doris Smith sit-
ting behind a desk in the corner. She
asked for our priority, since the place
was closed to ordinary men. She led
us into an adjoining room where Mary
Guild was just putting the finishing
touches on the training of two Hmodelu
models-Margaret Breed and lIartha
lNIitchell. Hazel Doiron and Rosalyn
Satzow, Mary Guild's advisers, were
standing at one side of the room, eX-
changing opinions on the abilities of
the two models. Arnold gave the two
models a contract with 6'lVIoe's
Movies, Incf, and we returned to the
studio. I took leave of my host and
started for the rocketport to get my
ship and return home.
My way took me through a shop-
ping district. One of the largest stores
was labeled MINI. H. Fishman Co., Inc.
Five and Dime Stores." Glancing in, I
noticed Frances Reynolds and Minnie
Zullo still serving the establishment
As I continued down the street, I
met Marion Scher, who told me that
she was a nurse in a nearby hospital
and was just going to work. Being in-
terested in the medical profession. I
decided to inspect the hospital. On
one of the operating tables I noticed
lVIay Perkins who, it seems, had just
had another cute accident. There were
many nurses hurrying to and fro, and
among them I recognized Helene
Strout. Jacqueline Lacasse and the
inseparable duo. Irene Lawrence and
Rita Gendron. The nurses had their
own basketball team, and one of them
proudly showed me a newspaper clip-
ping which read: "The 'Kill or Cure'
Hospital girls' team trounced a game
Fireman's five by a margin of 50-76f'
etc. Glancing at the line-up, I noticed
that the girls, team was made up al-
most entirely of Stevens alumnae. The
forwards were Anna Sakovich and
Wanda Sobollg guard's,Virginia Walker
and Shirley Burrillg and center, Jac-
queline Handly. They were coached
by Claire Lizotte and managed by
My visit completed, I left the hos-
pital and again started for the rocket-
port. determined this time not to get
side-tracked. I found my ship in good
condition and made an uneventful
trip back to Earth.

Under the leadership of a capable quartet of officers and our advisers, Blrs. Bueko.
Miss Willey. and lXIr. Ewing. the Class of ,45 has completed its final vear at
Stevens. In November, our vice-president, Gordon Davis, left us to join the Navy,
and is now serving with the Atlantic Fleet. Our two major activities of the year
were the football dance and the senior play.
The football danee was very successful with more than a hundred couples
attending. The hall resembled a gridiron complete with goal posts, megaphones,
footballs, and profiles of the players. The senior play, "Spring Greenf, was a side-
splitting success with Bill Lovejoy in the starring role.
Wie extend our gratitude and appreciation to our officers and advisers for
their friendly and understanding guidance.

These are the cheerleaders who helped to lead our teams on to victory this year.
Dressed in their regulation Red and Black with Bev Woodward as Head Cheer-

the boys from the sidelines. The cheerleaders attended every football and basket-
ball game and led the school rallies. All the girls are eligible for their letters after
two years of cheering.
