Early in November, the members of the Senior class met to select the staff for the 1949 issue of the Senior year book, the Red and Black. Philip Kaminsky was selected editor, and an able staff of writers and typists was chosen to aid him. This year's group met unusual difiiculties in procuring the financial aid neces- sary for the publication of the Year Book, and the Senior class extends its sincere thanks to them for their sincere efforts. In spite of numerous extra-curricular activities, the members of this group have devoted much time outside their regular school work to make the Year Book a success. This work entailed the visiting of many merchants and townspeople to obtain necessary funds, long hours of writing and correcting followed. The submission of various sketches finally re- sulted in the selection of the attractive cover for the issue of 1949. To the editor and the entire staff of the Red and Black, the Senior class extends its most sincere congratulations for the success of its Year Book. C83 C 0 Ei f l 7 5 Q5 5 5 - 7 D i' S--Sf fy .'b,..

THE STUDENT COUNCIL For the first time in some years, the Stevens Student Council of 1948-49 has really put its mark on the life here in Stevens. Although it was late starting this year, it has sponsored several activities for the good of the school. Among these are two dances, the Red and Black, and the Junior Prom. Next year, it is hoped to have enough money in the treasury to make possible the renting of buses to attend athletic contests. The Council was organized in December of 1948 and in the second meeting, elected its officers. Those elected were Robert Graham, President, Harry Marshall, Vice President, and Barbara Jacobs, Secretary. As in the past, the Student Council is made up of the leaders of the different school extra-curricular activities. These include the class officers, the captains of all varsity sports, the presidents of the band, the orchestra, and the chorus, the editors of the school newspaper and of the yearbook, the chairman of the assembly committee, the presidents of the Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y, and the head cheerleader and drum-major. C425 THE JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS Left to right: Barbara Jacobs, Cedric Hathaway, Robert Densrnore, Richard Brodrick. THE JUNIOR CLASS Ably led by Cedric Hathaway as president, Robert Densmore as vice- president, Barbara Jacobs as secretary, and Richard Brodrick as treasurer, the class of l95O has completed a successful and eventful year filled with plenty of studying and homework. l-lowever, it wasn't all on the Serious side. We have managed to find time to sponsor the annual Junior Prom and Senior Reception. Several members of our class have put extra time into such activities as sports, music, and the "Voice of Stevens." A highlight of the year was the arrival of the eagerly awaited-for class rings. We are looking forward with apprehension to the dignity of being Seniors in our next and final year at Stevens High. C433 THE SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS Left to right: Beverly Warren, Constance Costello, Albert Leahy, John Parker. THE SOPHOMORE CLASS The Sophomore Class, bubbling over with enthusiam, returned to its studies in the fall. Under the capable leadership of Mrs. June Bucko, our class advisor, we staged one of the finest freshman receptions, so we are told, at Stevens in recent years, Being an all-round class the Sophomores have participated in all the many and varied activities which make up the Stevens curriculum. There is a promising group of sophomores on both the football ancl baseball jayvees and a large proportion on the basketball squad. On the feminine side both field hockey and basketball varsities are densely populated with sophomores. ln the three musical organizations of the school we are also well represented. Because of the large number of Sophomores participating in extra curricular activities we feel we are doing our part in making Stevens the fine school that it is. We thank our class officers for performing so well the duties entrusted to them. C443 THE FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS Left to right: Marion Plant, Janet Couture, Wayne Barter, Jean Primmer, THE FRESHMAN CLASS The Freshman Class of l9-48 and l9-49 survived the traditional reception tendered it by the Sophornores. With Miss Marguerite Honadel as class advisor, the class successfully carried on its activities. A dance, held in February, was the chief of these functions, Members of the class who were elected to the Student Council did their part in making a success of the dance sponsored by this committee. ln studies and in sports the class has made its contribution towards an even better Stevens High School.

FOOTBALL The 1948 Stevens football team led by Captain Victor Fontaine, experienced a successful season. Of the nine games on the schedule the group came through five victoriously, including the annual Armistice Day game with Towle. Throughout the entire season the team put up a hard fight in the traditional Stevens' spirit. ln the games which they lost, they were usually outscored by one touchdown in the final minutes of the game. As is true of all football teams, many of the boys received injuries during the season. Most of them suffered only minor bumps and bruises, but one was seriously injured and three were on crutches. Nine of this yearls starting eleven will not return next season. This means our boys will have to work extra hard next year to achieve success, but with their many capable reserves and their fighting spirit we know they will make a great team.

Under the leadership of our new coach, Robert Vail, the team changed over to a new and more difficult style of play, the fast-break system. As the season progressed, it became apparent that 'the boys had not mastered the style.. Though they kept trying, they took it on the chin game after game. They 'tasted success but once, but they kept 'trying all the way. We are sure that come next year the boys returning to the team, after having a year of experience under their belts, will run up a string of victories.

The highlight of the season was the game in which they upset the Portmouth J. V.'s 41-35. This was the first time the Little Clippers had been beaten in three consecutive seasons. The team was largely made up of Freshmen and Sophomores, and in a few years these boys will be upon the Varsity squad. As many of the players had capabilities, the basketball siutation should be on the upgrade in succeeding years.

A group of about fifteen boys put in a lot of time to make the team a success.. Because of the lack of snow, only four meets were held out of the 'ten scheduled events. The first possible meet was with Windsor at Flat Rock, and Stevens won very easily. At the next meet, the State Meet at Mount Sunapee, the team ran against hard competition and came in seventh. At the follow- ing meet at Mount Ascutney, Windsor won by a slim margin over the Red and Black. The last meet was a triangular meet at Sunapee. Sunpaee was the winner, but Stevens was the runner-up. In spite of the handicaps under which they worked, all members of the team agree that their efforts were well rewarded.

Bottom row: Coach Clarence Par- ker, Carl Steinfield, Richard Sanderson, Charles Pullen, Albert Lawrence, Robert Marshall Pictured above is the 1948 baseball team which compiled a good record, winning ten games and losing five. This year we are fortunate in having the same team back minus Keith Hart and Charlie Pullen who were lost through graduation. If capable replacements for their positions can be found, this year's team can again be counted on to bring home an excellent record. Coach Parker has succeeded in gathering one of the finest baseball schedules ever had at Stevens. Twenty games are to be played, two of these being night games. This will be the first time our baseball team has ever played under the arc lights, and we hope it will be a complete success.

Although track is a comparatively new sport at Stevens, it has won instant favor with a large number of boys from the student body. Under the able guidance of Mr. McGrath, we took two meets from Newport and lost to the Keene High School team. This year ,the track team was fortunate in having a good Freshman sprinter, Jason Chick, who placed first in two of the meets and second in the other. One can not overlook the Todd twins. Richard and Robert, who along with Chick, made up the nucleus of the team. The other mem- bers of the team were as follows: Edward Chick, Donald Matthews, Robert Graham, Albert Marro, Merton Thompson, Larry Whipple, James Genovese, Eugene DeVoyd, Fred Merrill, Edward Picard, Arol Pockett, Richard Hoskins, Merrill Davis, Paul Baptista, Andre Bacon, Richard Zerba, Stanley Szambelan, John Blake, Raymond Ott, Alfred Normandin and Charles Hutchins. This spring, under the watchful eye of Mr. Disnard. the new coach, the team hopes to repeat its good showing of last year and, if possible, gain a more prominent position in the state meet, held at Durham.

HOCKEY Coming back to school in the fall here at Stevens means hockey for the average girl. This year it also meant meeting our new coach, Miss Merrill, Our practices started immediately in the second week of school in preparation for the first game which was with Hanover on September 0 in their favor, we did not give up hope. October 13, the day to play Towle here Towle girls were victorious with a 4 to was again a 3 to 0 loss. On October 30 our determination was to no avail as we 30 at Hanover. Though the score was 4 to There were more practices, and then came . Again the odds were against us, and the 3 victory. Our home game with Hanover we played our last game at Newport, but again lost 5 to 0. The Junior Varsity played four games, also lost all, but gained a lot of valuable experience. Their scores were: Newport 4 Stevens 0 Hanover 0 Stevens 0 The Junior Varsity players were: Jennie Leszkiewicz L. W. Hilda Converse L. I. Marilyn Wheeler C. F. Phyllis Graves R. I. Janet Fecteau R.

THE GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM This year's basketball team, captained by Sylvia Nawojczyk, played seven games., Although they won only four of the same games, the team never gave up hope and their sportsmanship was always of the finest. The team played Newport, Lebanon, White River, Bellows Falls, and the Stevens Alumni. The services of the Seniors, Sylvia Nawojczyk, Gwendolyn Fournier, Marjorie Lawrence and Teresa Leocha will be greatly missed next year, but promising replacements from the other classes make the future look bright.

Front row: Claire Burrell, Claire Gosselin, Patricia Patenaude, Constance Costello. CHEERLEADERS This year our cheerleaders were capably lead by Shirley Pullen and Miss Merrill, their advisor. Dressed in their new uniforms, red corduroy jumpers over white jerseys, the girls did an excellent job of leading the spectators at both basket- ball and football games. Their many new routines and their cooperation with the band brought successful results throughout the year and helped to spur our teams on to victory. The girls, who are usually chosen when they are in the eighth grade or their Freshman year, have worked hard and many have gradually attained their cherished positions., To receive a letter, a cheerleader must do two years of cheering. Without a doubt they well deserve their reward, and the students of Stevens High School extend their sincerest thanks to them for their continual encouragement and faithfulness. i553 1 A -4 GJ D-C E IU E 4 E E V5 E U an ra E '55 FS o CQ ci 3 ,ii Q CU CQ 'J-7 5 .: .E U 4-3 -C if 5-4 O 4-1 4-I '4-4 GJ -4 of .E 'U C1 CYS 4-1 un A-4 U TU Km I Q z 4: CQ ,J O C m O ID cz: E : rn Z Li P L1-I E4 cn 3 0 J.

To Mr, Walter Paskevich goes a large measure ofthe credit for the success of our band. Only by his tireless efforts and his able direction were our musicians able to accomplish the fine results which they achieved. A spirit of co-operation prevailed, thus more and better work resulted from the organization. This willingness to dig in made it possible for the marching unit to appear at the first football game, three days after school opened. . More practice enabled the band to present precision drilling and snappy formations at five home games and at two out-of-town contests. At Hallo- we'en, Christmas time, Memorial Day, and Alumnae Day, the band marched in city parades. lt went out-of-town to play in the Bellows Falls Alumnae Day celebration. Credit should be given Russell Currier, the drum-major, Janice Baker, the head batonist, and Forrest Putnam, the parade master, for the contributions they made to the marching unit's successful performance. When athletic contests came indoors, the band was on hand to play for basketball games, Now came preparation for concert work. Our first appearance as a concert unit was in October for the benefit of the hurricane victims. Later the band put on a pre-Education week observ- ance and provided music for several plays held in the high school. And, as every year, the band appeared at several assemblies, at Class Day, and put on a Spring Concert. As a reward for the musicians' efforts, the band, along with the choir and the orchestra, went to the music festival at Franklin. This year's officers were Joanne Douglas, President, Elma Griswold, Vice-President, Edward Chick, Secretary-Treasurer. The Librarians were Marjorie Lawrence and Sally Townsend, The seniors, graduating in June, will leave a big hole in the ranks to be filled by oncoming musicians. From the group of new members who have join- ed the organization this year, an equally good band can and will be shaped. Musical organizations are vital in the life of the school and city as are sports.

This year the orchestra has had about fifty-two members and thirty of these are stringed instruments. The remainder is divided among brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments. This year has also seen the addition of an oboist, two flutists, and a piccolo player, Each year, since his arrival, Mr. Paskevich has taken the orchestra, along with the band and choir, to the State Festival. These were held at Newport the first year, and at Plymouth the next two years. Each year the orchestra has received top honors, and it is considered to be one of the best in the state. This year the festival is being held in Franklin and, once more, the high school orchestra is planning on going. Besides the annual festival, the orchestra has many other activities that it carries on during the school year. lt gives two annual concerts, one at Christmas, and the other in the spring. Also, the orchestra performs during the intermission of the senior play and any other plays put on at Stevens, for assemblies, before clubs, and during such observances as Education Week and Americanism Week. Each year there are three officers elected, President, Vice-President, and Secretary-Treasurer. This year Elma Griswold is President, Donald Hodge, Vice-President, and Malcolm MacDonald, Secre- tary-Treasurer. The Librarians are Marjorie Lawrence and Joanne Douglas. There are also two representatives from orchestra on the Music Council, which was established this year. There are many activities at Stevens High, but we are sure that all, mem- bers and other students alike, will agree that none contributes more to the morale of the school than the orchestra.

Before l945, it was the only singing group in the school, but since then, the choir has been formed. Although it makes but one appearance a year, a great deal of time and effort, on the part of both the members and director, are spent in preparing for it. Hours of practice, both in school time and out of school time, are spent each year in preparation for the Christmas Concert. This year, as in past years, a cantata was presented. Because there are no requirements for admittance to the chorus, it is the largest musical organization in the school, any student in the high school who wants to sing in the chorus may do so. This year, it was bigger than usual, and there were over one hundred and twenty voices in it. The officers were as follows: Elma Griswold, President, Barbara Williams, Vice-President, and Albert Leahy, Secretary-Treasurer. Patricia Benoit and Cynthia Putnam were the librarians, and the accompanist was Richard Fish, "The Manger of Bethlehem" by Charles Lane was the contata which was presented this year, lt was based upon the Christmas Carol, "Hark the Herold Angels Sing" by Mendelsohn. On Sunday, December l9, it was pre- sented to a full house. The soloists were Janice Baker, Soprano, Elma Griswold, Alto, and Malcolm MacDonald, Bass. They are all seniors at Stevens High School. The performance was a success, and it was enjoyed by everyone. The Christmas Concert has become an institution at Stevens High and it is looked forward to by many people. The Chorus was a fine group this year, and their work was good.

Through the years since its beginning, the choir's popularity has increased, and requests for it to sing at different functions have increased in number each year. The choir is a comparatively small group of singers. Every one of its members is chosen by Mr. Paskevich, and once a person has become a member, he may keep the position as long as he is in high school, This year, the choir had the largest number of voices it has ever had. The officers were as follows: Elma Griswold, President, Barbara Williams, Vice-President, and Albert Leahy, Secretary-Treasurer. Patricia Benoit and Cynthia Putnam were the librarians, and Alice Howe was the accompanist. The choir's most popular selections this year were "Holy, Holy, Holy" by John B, Dykes, "Country Style" by James Van Heusen, "Dry Bones" arranged by Livingston Gearhart, and "Cindy" arranged by Harry Robert Wilson. The choir sang for The Rotary Club the radio station,W.T.S.V., The Republican Club, The Methodist Philatheas Club, The Christmas Concert, The V.F.W. Dedication Ceremony, and at the Baccalaureate and Graduation exercises of the class of l949, vmmmi C 63 J 1 L THE ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE Standing, left to right: Carolyn Papps, Edward Chick, Nancy Brodrick, Carl Steinfield, Elma Griswold, Harry Marshall.

Janice Baker Was absent when picture was taken SENIOR ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE This year the Senior Assembly Committee brought to Stevens a number of varied and interesting programs. Assemblies were presented in the auditorium every Tuesday morning. Carl Steiniield served as committee chairman, and Mr. Albert Gauthier acted as the faculty advisor. Among the assemblies were Hlrns on sports, aviation, science, and one on the U. S.. Naval Academy. We were fortunate in obtaining such informative speakers as John Clark, publisher of the Claremont Daily Eagle, and William Loeb, publisher of the Manchester Uniong Ross McKenney of the Dartmouth Outing Clubg John Montagne, formerly with the U. S. Forest Park Serviceg and F. B. I. agent, Robert McLeod. We sincerely feel that the Senior Assembly Committee has done its share in contributing to the social and cultural activities of Stevens High School during the last scholastic year.

C655 "NlGHT OF JANUARY 'l6th" Every graduating class looks forward to the spring production of the annual Senior play. This year a court-room scene, "Night of January l6th" by Ayn Rand, and under the direction of Mr. Gray, was produced by special arrangement with Longman, Green and Co., of New York. An unusual feature of the play is the drawing of twelve members of the audience to serve as jury. This play is without a heroine, but Carolyn Papps was chosen for the leading feminine role, that of Karen Andre, defendant in the murder trial. Her quietness, coldness, and indifference of attitude combined with her loyalty to Faulkner made her an outstanding lead.. Nancy Lee Faulkner was played successfully by Betty Osgood in her modest, refined, and sensitive manner. Nor did the murder trial have a hero. The principal role, that of prosecuting attorney, was played by Robert Angier in his usual shrewd manner. The role of defense-attorney was ably handled by the neat and well-mannered Edward Chick, who fought valiantly for the rights of his client. Malcom MacDonald proved to be an impressive, straight-forward, and capable actor in the role of Judge Heath.. The role of Dr. Kirkland, the first witness, was ably played in a quiet and scholarly manner by Howard Egbert. Homer Van Fleet, a sour and indifferent private detective in the employ of Nancy Lee, was competently performed by William Parsons. The round-faced, good-natured and enthusiastic "Joel' Graves pranked through the part of the New York policeman. Robert Graham easily and modestly impersonated the role of John Graham Whitfield, a strong but pleasant executive of large aiairs. Robert Peterson with his Swedish accent effectively portrayed Junguist, a timid uneducated, but intelligent and cultured clerk. Robert Hildreth, the fearless and intelligent gangster, moved impulsively through the scenes as Larry Regan. Martha Heller, a Negro janitorls wife, good naturedly supplied damaging evidence and important testimony early in the production. Elma Griswold, suspici- ous of everybody, frolicked with an offended righteousness and in a loud, rancorous, Swedish dialect as the comedy star. Business-like and efficient Therese Blanchard modestly but positively enact-ed the role of the handwriting expert. Teresa Leocha sported the role of a night club entertainer very successfully. Minor roles were successfully acted in a creditable and supporting manner by: Joel Bass, Bailiffg Philip Kaminisky, Clerk of the Courtg Raymond Dansereau and Clark Burbee, Policemeng Margaret Eastman, Prison Matrong Janice Baker and Dorothy Saunders, Secretaries, Beverly Stone, Court Stenographer. Student assistants were: Student Director, Richard Fish, Stage Manager, Arthur Fitellg Assistant Manager, Robert Llarshallg Electrician, Donald Hadgeg Prompters, Vera Larcom and Harold Woodward, Properties, Joanne Douglas and George Leclair. The play developed in such a way that the evidence of the defendant's guilt or innocence seemed balanced, but the calm precision of the jury left the audience debating the decision. f66l THE VOICE OF STEVENS STAFF Back row, left to right: Edward Chick, Harold Woodward, Robert Graham, Robert Crossman, Richard Fish, Clark Burbee.

THE VOICE OF STEVENS Under the leadership of Robert Graham, editor, the Voice of Stevens, our high school publication, has at last made a permanent imprint on the life of the average Stevens' student. Five issues were published during the school year of ,118-'49, and many new features found instant favor among the student body. Timely news, feature articles, and unusual columns were all eagerly read and discussed. The fact of its popularity is easily attested to by the large number of subscriptions which was sold early in the school year. The efforts of the staff have resulted in a thoroughly successful year for the Voice of Stevens.

THE JUNIOR LIBRARIANS The Junior librarians are composed of high school students. They meet each week on Thursday afternoon with Miss Tremblay to plan their Work and activities. Each librarian has a certain job assigned her for the year, in addition to her regular desk duties. These are inventory, catologing, filing, checking the shelves, periodicals, and rebinding. Each librarian Works during her study period and before or after school. Each year the librarians plan various ways of raising money. This year they have sold football schedule pencils and Christmas cards. Part of the money goes into the library fund, and the remainder is used for the annual outing, which is held in June.
