Lester Trafton, the Superintendent of schools in the City of Claremont, in recognition of his outstanding achievement as an educator and administrator, with appreciation of his friendship for students and teachers alike, the yearbook staff respectfully dedicates the 1952 issue of the Red and Black. 2 Mr. Edgar L. Lord, Mr. Stephen A. Doody Assistant-Principal Principal I To the members of the Class of 1952: It is a real pleasure to greet you upon the completion of your high school course and to join with your parents and friends in congratulating you. A While it is no longer an uncommon event for a young person to graduate 'from high school, we are still far from the goal of at least a high school diploma for every American boy and girl. It does mean, however, that you have had the farsightedness to realize that one must have an education in this day and age in order to compete for the more important types of work. For those who plan to go on to some post-secondary institution I hope that your plans may be fulfilled even if you have to wait until you have completed your tour of military duty. To those who plan to go to work at once or to enter the Armed Forces I hope that you may find the kind of employment which will give you a successful life of satisfaction and service. All of us who care for Stevens appreciate your cooperation and your Willingness to work for the good of the school. Sincerely yours, 42.

The Council, which is one of the most active organizations in the school, is constantly working to better the school and to carry out the suggestions that are offered by the students. In September, the Council held its first meeting and immediately elected officers. A mammoth football rally was planned for the annual Stevens-Towle football game. Posters were made by some students in an effort to bring more support to the game. The Council voted to help re-cover and paint the backdrop and furnishings for the Senior Play. The Council plans to put on a play or dance later on in the year. Last year's policy of campaigning for quieter assemblies was continued. The Student Council suggestion box was moved to the table in the study hall, and students were urged to drop in more suggestions. We are sure that without our advisor, Mr. Willard Rollins, we would not be able to do our job. We thank him very much for his guidance and co-operation in our activities. Z ' - l i . ""' .

THE ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE This year, as in others, the Assembly Committee has again done its share in contributing to the social and educational activities of Stevens. The assemblies were held every Tuesday morning in the school auditorium. Each assembly had a student leader. The full co-operation of the committee has made it possible to have good assemblies, and we wish to thank the students and teachers for their deep appreciation of our work. To please the school and faculty has been the object of the committee and speakers. They have, we may say,-done so, and we hope they will do so again in the future. fyoyfciy Mg QOGQAMS Wien!

THE VOICE of' STEVENS There are definite reasons for establishing any newspaper, particularly a high school publi- cation. It must supply an outlet for the talents, support ideals of the school, and paint a clear picture of students, faculty, and the developments within the curriculum. The student edition is a mirror, reflecting all associated in the endeavor. "The Voice of Stevens" originated November 14, 1945, under the capable leadership of Leston Barrett, Dorothy Ormsby, Robert Hauge, and faculty advisor, Mr. Lyle W. Ewing. There has been an increasing interest in the school paper at Stevens. Different trends in journal- istic form have been introduced and various improvements made. The chief goal of the present staff is to publish a paper which has high standards, portraying a cross section of our activities. Written and supported by the students, there is little question as to the success and continued popularity of "The Voice." Future achievements are limited only by our own capacities and limitations. In no field is there more opportunity for development, but constant efforts must be made to bring news to life, to increase circulations, to promote good will, and to hold the interest of our readers. "The Voice" is the tongue of the students, the character of that paper depends upon the student body. 4."0'd'E' '-' n'n:m"' 5 -xtx Q7 le.

THE JUNIOR LIBRARIANS The girls who choose to become Junior Librarians render valuable service to the school, the library, and the librarian. They work in the library during activity period, study periods, at noon and after school. The method of instruction and the division of duties vary with the amount of time the girls can be on duty. The experience these assistants acquire helps them to gain a good knowledge of the resources of a library and of their use. Some of their duties consist of shelving, lettering books, mending, filing, bulletin board displays, working at the charging desk, and helping to keep the library groomed. Academic credit is not given for the work done, however, beginning this year an emblem was given to the girls who qualified. Business meetings are held once a month. Officers are: Linda Nolin, chairman, and Lucinda Nolin, secretary-treasurer. The library sponsors the Teen-Age Book Club to enable pupils to attain, at a reasonable cost, a wide range of good books selected by a board of well-known educators. The Junior librarians end the school year with an outing-either a cook out or a picnic supper at a Lake Sunapee hotel. However, last year the girls were fortunate in being able to spend a full week-end at the Lake Sunapee cottage of good friends of the school. f N: -gig-. f'F3?S-- . f 1. 1 f ' 52515 10 35 K-P? ,WS " Ho HUM '9 MP xofix QQ, 36 'nah 'U C 0 yrs f 44 hmm...

E. is a truly vocational subject which offers students an oppor- tunity "to earn while they learn" a vocation. On the job, students are paid the prevailing wage and receive a full school credit for the work done. Employers grade these trainees, and the grade counts fifty per cent of the mark which appears on the report card. In addition, the D. E. department offers courses to adult sales personnel, as well as a Christmas training program to prepare other high school pupils for selling jobs during the Christmas season. For the past two years the D. E. department has presented a Career Day program for students of Stevens and St. Mary's high schools. This program is sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce. D. E. is truly a public relations department. This year there are thirty-eight pupils enrolled, and they are employed in twenty-one differ- ent businesses. Great tribute is due the business men in Claremont who have cooperated so well in providing business opportunities for these young men and women. The D. E. course could not have succeeded without their help and support. 38 2-A I 0 lf, MW wil! , .. 1-O I , I I ' ' ' . . . 1 . ' Sv S y F' KF ,JAKE A l THE DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION CLUB Standing: E.

THE NEW YORK CLUB The New York Club is composed of a group of Senior girls who work throughout the year to earn money for an educational trip to 'tthe big city." The noon-time and after school sale of ice cream brings in a considerable amount of revenue. Food sales are held from time to time during the school year. At Christmas time, cards and wrapping paper are sold by the members. During the week of April vacation all members leave for New York and a continuous round of educational activities followed by fun and more fun. These include a visit to the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center and a boat trip around Manhattan Island. Underclass girls who desire an activity that combines fun and learning would do well to join this group. Q la. if! 42 "xx il' Co Qfma Inedy i X ' THE CL. Jfffyff ' ' 3 ffl' 11 KNAPP 120' C.

This statement might have been made under today's conditions, but actually it was said in 1928. It was not until 1935, seven years later, that the first course in driver education was instituted. Over the years this course has cut down the number of traffic accidents in the com- munities where it is taught. The percentage has sometimes reached as high as fifty per cent. Although it is a comparatively new course at Stevens, it has met with immediate approval of the student body, and already it has enabled scores of young people to obtain their driver's license with the background training- necessary to insure safe driving and common courtesy on the highway. 44 73:"'wfS Dqlp l 1 Piano, J.

THE STEVENS DANCE BAND The Dance Band is a new and welcome activity at Stevens. The first organized rehearsal of dance music which included any of the present personnel of the orchestra took place during the spring of 1951 with a group of students who became interested through the efforts of Tom Hastings, the orchestra's drummer. However, it proved difficult to get together for rehearsals, so the idea was temporarily abandoned until shortly before the close of school. At that time the orchestra was reorganized by Barry Hale, and rehearsals were held regularly throughout the remainder of the school term using a library of borrowed orchestrations. During the summer the musicians rehearsed at the home of John Pierce, but very little was accomplished. When school resumed, they augmented their library by a few new orchestrations and increased their number to fourteen pieces. With the cooperation of Mr. Doody and the many teachers who willingly gave of their time to act as chaperones, the group rehearsed nights in the school audi- torium. The progress of the orchestra became evident once it was in the proper surroundings. The musicians were able to put on an assembly program in the latter part of September and play for the Freshman Reception early in October and for a Halloween Dance at the City Hall. Many engagements followed, and the Dance Band is now accepted as an important activity at Stevens. 1 Q ,fir 'A 05- U DSl Q I 45 cgihi "' LHPQXE fv JO W Umor vom , I Hiya 074 foo ff' 46 N N uw-W ,.

This is the result of good directing, well-chosen music, citizen interest, and the general enthu- siasm shown by the students. The size and superiority of our musical groups are remarkable when compared to the size of the school itself. Many schools have trouble encouraging boys to participate musically, but that is definitely not the case at Stevens. The importance of music in our system of extra-curricular activities provides a pleasant contrast to schools that are sports-minded and offer nothing for the great majority of students who are not qualified to play on school teams. For many students the musical groups have been the only outside activi- ties in which they could take part. These organizations provide, not only good music, but social contacts. Many of the members have found lasting friendships among people with com- mon interest. They teach one to get along with other people, to take criticism, and to co- operate. Their value in providing wholesome outside interests and education is very high. Perhaps the best-known of the musical organizations is the band, which has had a long and colorful history. Having made many trips around the state to games and musical gatherings, the band has gained a reputation for good music and marching that is statewide. A year ago a drive was started to raise money for new uniforms. In some communities such a project would have meant a matter of many months or even years. Enthusiastic townspeople and students raised more than enough money in a few short months, and, though the project was not started until there was snow on the ground, the band wore new uniforms to the music festival in May. Another well-known musical organization is the A Capella choir. This organization has approximately seventy members, of which about thirty are boys. Because of the fine reputation this group has gained, there is always a large number of students each fall who would like to join the choir. Long hours of tedious practice, going over the same selections many, many times, never fail to produce the effects desired. The choir makes public appearances at many local affairs as well as school affairs each year. The music is varied and very high in audience appeal. Our third musical group is the orchestra. This group also has about seventy members, a remarkable membership for a school orchestra. Interest has grown in the past few years, and new instruments have been added. The orchestra now boasts about thirty violins. New addi- tions, such as a bassoon and two oboes, have come steadily. This group is always popular at Christmas-time especially, when the annual concert is given. These organizations have contributed much to the cultural enjoyment of the school and the students during the past years. For many people they have provided that sense of belonging so important to high school students everywhere. They have built up the school's reputation throughout the state. They have provided many lasting memories for those who have taken part in them as well as many enjoyable memories for those who have watched them perform and thrilled to their wonderful music. 48 fbM.:.,, . . 1 Q www, 15 H 3 ? 5 Q, eg A Lia 5 f Y . i E Lge' 'B we , wif-at yn W 1+ in fm, gi sv U Us YN ovbxo Ao 'C N1 77,6 W U ,ff N V ' 1 T Gro A9 'Q L 6 Z ,, dcn AL QX 01-M L CIESLFWL Sf ?

THE CHEERLEADERS What would a football or basketball game be like without our dazzling spirited group known as Stevens Cheerleaders? Led by capable "Jackie" Palmer with the aid of Miss Kibby, their advisor, these selected few put everything they have behind the team A win or lose. They are untiring in their practices. They operate as any other team does, practicing on Thursday and Friday mornings during activity periodg they show their routines on the big daysg and they travel to the scene of the game with whatever transportation is available. This year's costumes with short red ballerina skirts with black lining and beautiful white turtle neck sweaters with the "S" splendidly standing out were really intriguing. The girls are usually chosen in the eighth grade or freshman year. They work hard and co-operate at all times which entitles them to receive a letter that everyone feels is well earned. To obtain a letter one must cheer during two football and basketball seasons. 1041 I Q5 .sz We J. V.. FOOTBALL TEAM Kneeling: J. Hanks, Coach J. Maiola, P. Bovard. Standing: S. Colby, T. Fowler, R.

Jason Chick, New Hampshire State Champion THE CROSS-COUNTRY TRACK TEAM With the opening of school each year in September the call goes out for candidates for the various fall sports at Stevens. Following the issuance of equipment the squad started on a training program in anticipation of the coming meets. To build up the stamina which the cross country style of running demands, practice sessions included general hiking, climbs to Flat Rock, "flat" racing at Monadnock Park, work on hard-paved roads in the South and Chestnut street area, over hill and dale at the Claremont Country club, and work over a combination of all types of terrain in Moody Park. The Red and Black harriers engaged in five meets during the regular season: two duals with Towle, one with Keene, one with Laconia, and a triangular affair with Sunapee and Charlestown. Stevens won three and lost two. Chick, who took first place in the four races he ran - he did not run the Keene meet - broke the course records at Newport and at Laconia. Stevens also entered a team in the State Meet at Durham, Novem- ber 3. Jason Chick established himself as the top harrier in the State by leading the 49 runners to the linish line. Jason Chick's win at Durham made him eligible to compete in the New Englands at Burlington, Vt. on November 10. .....-.. lx 7:51 - i -M! e-e 5? 1 ,, lm- , - Q? - " . f-Y. -' gratis- ,, , T" " A -,,' H5 "il-'M ., ' -g'- xi-3-31 - W ,, YE .. lj.

Working inside on mats and with jump-ropes, the boys waited anxiously for the coming of warm weather and sunshine. By the middle of April the team had moved to Monadnock Park and were preparing for their first meet. The season opened April 28 with a victory for Stevens over Springfield and Bellows Falls. In the second encounter Stevens was second best to Kimball Union Academy but de- feating Hanover and Lebanon. In the Tilton Invitational, Stevens took only one first but came back strong to win a one-sided victory over Towle. The Red and Black thinclads Hnished third in a triangular meet with Keene and Gardner, Mass., and third in the Twin-State-Valley Meet. A squad of five men went to the State Meet at Durham. Stevens won the half-mile run and went on to place in the New England High School Track Meet. .41 -44 ff 'X . :Y I I 4 of A' :J f S f I I Z,.U9l,.4M-I 59 THE VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM 60 5 i Y r i 1 X s 3 5 l j "iw Ml. am, .. .5 Qs Qi? kgs if gr .ik Coach J.

THE SKI TEAM Stevens ski enthusiasts had just cause for looking optimistically toward the 1952 ski cam- paign. With the return of four lettermen, ably supported by a number of fine skiers from last year's squad, the prospects for regaining their place in Class A ski circles was very good. The team began preparing for the ski wars in mid-November, utilizing the fine fall weather for conditioning games of touch-football and for cross-country running. The pre-season train- ing was started none too soon as early snows made it possible for the candidates to familiarize themselves with advanced racing techniques very early in the season. This early practice on snow paid dividends as was indicated in the opening meets. Com- petition with Lebanon, Sunapee, Towle, Windsor, Laconia, and the State Championship meets comprised the schedule for the 1952 season. As was expected, downhill and slalom were the team's strong points, led by the stellar per- formances of Goodrich and Brown, reinforced by the fine skiing by Hale, Penniman, Whitney, Parker, and Thompson. Paced by Penniman, the cross-country team did a highly commendable job and contributed its share of the points. Jumping, a new event for us this year, revealed several stalwart jumpers - namely, Brown, Schneider, Goodrich, and Whitney. 62 , - , B. Haleg B. Whitneyg R. Parker M. Thompson, R.

No red-blooded American youth can help but feel excited when the crack of ball on bat echoes across the newly-mown diamonds. This sport has always been a favorite at Stevens, and this school has had its share of winning teams. In recent years Stevens has produced the 1949 State Championship Team. The following year, 1950, Stevens forced a playoff with Keene for a tournament berth, losing by one run in the final inning. Although at first glance the record of the 1951 baseball team may not look as impressive as that of former years, the inquiring fan can soon realize that the months of May and June pro- vided plenty of good baseball. True, the scores show eleven losses to five wins, but some games were lost by the narrow margin of one or two runs.

About forty-five girls went out for the sport. The team practiced every night after school from 3:30 to 5:45. The hockey team made an enviable record because for several years a Stevens girls' team has never won so many games in a season. The Junior Varsity played a great part and gained much valuable experience. f, Qui 66 H Q 4 'mm-we vm x vgw-wvwfmwwwel '4"f"W'PS1M 'Hwy ,A ,N .W,,,..M,W8,.,,f,6.m.Q1 Q.

Parents know that the proprietor, with a heavy investment at stake, is most anxious to maintain the atmosphere of respectability in his establishment. The school administration in Claremont has always backed any program which will make for a fuller and richer life for its graduates. It has sanctioned the bowling program because it benefits many students who do not otherwise engage in school sports and because it provides experience in social living. D Here at Stevens, the Red and Black Bowling League, started four years ago under the direction of Mr. Albert Gauthier, has become increasingly popular. Major interest in the activity has come from the girl students. This would, no doubt, hold true in any school because, in general, boys have more of a sports program offered them than do the girls. The teams follow a regular schedule with matches being held once weekly from early Novem- ber through March. Each bowler rolls two strings. A record of the scores made in these matches is faithfully kept, and at the end of the season awards go to those who have turned in note- worthy performances. These awards are small, highly-polished wooden bowling pins, eight inches high, trimmed with the school colors and lettered with the proper information. They go to each member of the championship teams, to the bowlers with: the highest double-string score. In addition, the boy, and girl showing the most improvement and interest during the season receives one. New members are always welcome. Why not plan to join next winter? What s my score?
