AUTHENTIC VOLUME XXVIII STONEHAM, MASS., JUNE 25, 1912 NUMBER 2 Problems Confronting the High School Graduate Each Year, a few months be- fore graduation, there arises in the mind of every prospec- tive High School graduate this question, “Shall I seek further education at at some higher institution or shall I now go forth and at- tempt to win my way in the world ? ” The importance of this ques- tion, which vitally concerns every boy in our schools today, cannot be exaggerated. Upon this decision depends the future of the boy ; the success or failure of his entire career, for every one is es- pecially suited for some particular vocation, and upon the boy’s ability to select the right vocation, depends his success or failure. With the majority of graduates school life now ceases and they must surmount many obstacles be- fore attaining success. Life is both a race and a struggle ; whatever prize we win, we must contest for ; and whatever victory we gain, we must fight for. Although many avenues of life are open, those who immediately enter upon business life have great difficulty in selecting an occupation for which they are especially adapted and hesitate before making a decision. But even harder is the proposition which con- fronts the boy who continues his education. Shall he follow a technical course at some scientific school, as the Massachusetts Institute of Technol- ogy, which results in employment as an engineer or shall he pursue an academic course at some classi- cal college, as Harvard, which broadens his general FIRST HONOR education but fits him for no particular occupation ; or shall he begin his professional studies at once and attend a Law school, a Dental school, or a Medical school. Before a decision is reached, there are several things to be considered, the most important being, “ In what particular line has the boy thus far shown the greatest ability to excel ? ” But when one re- members that today boys graduate from High School at the age of eighteen, seventeen, and even sixteen years, it is not strange that they have shown no marked aptitude and have no definite idea of the practical side of these vocations. Hence it is not strange that many boys choose professions for which they are entirely unsuited and in which they can never achieve success. Before deciding whether or not one should seek a a college education, we should compare the posi- tions, financial and social, held by those who have received college educations with the positions at- tained by those who entered business life imme- diately after the completion of their High School course. If the latter are more desirable, there is apparently nothing more to be said ; but if the for- mer, then we must judge whether the difference in the degree of success is large enough to warrant the spending of four years of ones’ life and the out- lay of hundreds and even thousands of dollars to secure this higher education. From this comparison, it is seen that the latter, sometimes and even often, command higher salaries and hold more responsible positions than the for- mer. But the advantages derived by a student from the books are minor to the other benefits con- ferred by a college education. The general broad- ening of the mind and sharpening of the intellect enable a college graduate to grasp more firmly and see more clearly an entirely new idea. He is taught to disregard details, to cope with any emergency, and to be prepared for any situation. A boy with the moral courage to go through college unharmed, comes forth in every sense of the word a man and a desirable citizen of our country. Every boy for whom it is at all possible should acquire some form of a college education that he may be more com- pletely equipped to surmount the obstacles of his career. But in either case, — college-bred or self-made, as the boy may be, he should remember that all THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC things are possible, — he can win no matter how he begins, — and armed with a fixed idea and fair ideals, impelled by a worthy motive there is no limit to the future of the bright progressive Ameri- can youth of today. Paul Lester Keenan. The Ultimate Good to be derived from Athletics SECOND HONOR k- From the time of the early Greeks, athletics have held a prominent place in the lives of men. The Greeks were the first to take a great interest in athletics and to develop them to a high degree. Later when the number of athletes in Greece be- came small, interest declined and a period of dissi- pation and moral laxity came over the nation, followed by its conquest by Rome. The Romans during their success and triumph, took great inter- est in athletics. But again with diminishing inter- est came their downfall. The next athletic period came with the age of chivalry when for the first time a spirit of courtesy toward an opponent was shown. Athletics of modern times have combined all the good qualities of the older periods and have elimi- nated most of their objectionable ones. About one half of the human body is made up of muscles. These muscles are developed by games and athletics, hence it is easily seen how great a benefit physical sports may be. Their greatest benefits, however, are manifest when they are en- joyed by all, not by the few. Contrary to common opinion the professional athlete does not derive the greatest good from athletics, for they are beneficial only when they are indulged in as play, and become harmful when taken up as a business. A general interest in athletics tends to make a nation strong in moral character and in physical health. Again, athletics are democratic. Anyone going into them, no matter what his social standing, must show himself superior to all other candidates before he can make the team he is trying for. Moreover, an athlete must recognize discipline, for after mak- ing a team he must undergo a certain amount of training, such as keeping good hours, abstaining from rich foods and other luxuries and being under the authority of a coach whom he must at all times obey. It is the duty of the coach to show his athletes how to keep in proper condition to play their best game. Therefore a boy in training is keeping him- self physically fit, and recognizing the good it is doing him is apt in later life to know what a bene- fit clean living is. Then most athletes learn to play a game square. To take advantage of every misplay of the oppo- nents, yet not to use unfair means to cause the mis- play. If a boy does not have honor enough of his own to teach him to be fair the spectators soon im- press it upon him in a way not soon forgotten. In all games quick thinking is a prime necessity. In order to use to its best advantage the strength gained by careful training, the athlete should know where, how and when to use it. Oftentimes in a football game an unexpected attack on a supposed strong point will gain what a continued attack upon a weaker point will not do. In the same way, some strategic move on the baseball field will stop an opponent’s rally, or a well-placed bunt will win a game by its total unexpectedness. Thus athletics certainly furnish excellent mental as well as physi- cal stimulus. Lastly, in all athletic games there is need for courage — courage perhaps in several forms. First, the courage to stand up and take defeat and yet fight back. Many a game is won by a team which is “ hitting the line hard,” taking advantage of all its opponent’s misplays and giving back only inch by inch when hard pressed. Then also there is the courage necessary to play a game as long as one can stand up and help the team. This quality is probably shown mostly in football and running. Finally there is the courage to play steadily in spite of the jeers of a critical and hostile crowd who are anxiously waiting for some pretext to find fault and to lay the blame for defeat upon innocent shoulders. Youth is the age of sport, when moral character is being formed and all experiences make lasting impressions. So a boy who trains faithfully and plays the game hard in athletics will take care of his health, will face adversity bravely and will play the game of life squarely and well in later years. Nelson William Dempsey. Class History k- In September, 1908, forty-four boys and girls en- tered Stoneham High School as freshmen. Out of that number only fourteen remain to graduate ; these, with the thirteen who have joined from other THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC schools and classes, comprise our present class of twenty-seven members. We immediately drew up a constitution and elected Mr. Mann class president. We had considerable discussion as to what our class colors should be, green and white, or blue and gold. We finally decided upon blue and gold. What two colors could be more appropriate for our royal class, than these ? We also decided upon our class pin, which you see represented. Our class is the last to have class pins, all other classes from now on will have school pins distinguished only by class numerals. Business matters being attended to, we turned our attention to studies. Every class has its faults, one of ours was whispering. It took Miss Sherman just three days to fine it out. Then she said, “ that if we persisted in acting like kinder-garten children we must be punished accordingly,” so many a noon the front seats in Room 2, were occupied until half past one, by such of us as could not get over our childish ways. About the middle of December we thought it would be nice to hold a social, but Paul said we ought to wait until the Xmas shopping was over, so we delayed until the last of March when all, except the hoodlums, met one fine evening at the home of Miss Duplin. There were several that stayed at home. So with a little studying and a little whispering, we passed our first year as High School students. When we returned as Sophomores and entered Room 11, which is on the same floor as the Junior and Senior room, we felt that we were indeed an important part of the school. We had no socials or good times this year except what we got from our school work. One study which we enjoyed immensely was Physics. Especially the stereopticon lectures in Room 14, which we all so well remember. It was strange how a boy who was sitting in one comer of the room when the lights went out, was found sit- ting beside a certain girl on the other side of the room when the lights went on. It certainly was a case of rapid transit. We also began the study of French at this time and Ruth one day translated the verb embarrasser as meaning “to kiss.” Upon being corrected by Miss Kellogg she indignantly replied, “that she guessed she knew what to kiss meant,” and we all agree she does. The Junior year is the most strenuous of all, for this is the time of flower parties. For many years, it has been customary for each boy to see some feminine member of his class safely home after the party. Our boys wished to follow the good exam- ple of other classes and decided to do the same. But it was strange how all the boys wanted to go home with the same girl. Marion certainly had great difficulty in choosing her escort ; we noticed, however, that Carroll was usually the favored one. All boys like sweet things, so we girls always brought fudge. But it wasn’t the boys only who liked sweet things. Doris liked a certain “Sweet” so much that he was always on hand to walk home with her after the flower parties. We worked hard at these parties, but felt amply repaid for all our labor when at graduation time, we heard so many people say that the decorations were the prettiest seen at a graduation for years. In behalf of the Class of 1912, I wish to thank the Juniors for these decorations. We realize the work you have put into them, and sincerely hope that you have enjoyed making these for us as much as we enjoyed making ours for the Class of 1911. Although we had a great many good times this year, we studied, and studied hard. Some of us even burned the midnight oil, a thing we had never done before, nor since. I think our hardest study was American History, but we enjoyed the recitations, especially when we had a new teacher and Mann and Dempsey ex- changed names. We were sorry to lose two of our best teachers this year, Miss Robinson and Miss Fuller. When we returned as Seniors we were surprised to find that Miss Kellogg, also, had left us. Some teachers take our hearts by storm, others creep into them before we realize it. This was the way with Miss Kellogg. We never knew how much we loved her till she left us. Again we were sorry when Miss Ruggli left us at the beginning of the new year. It was suggested that instead of having our ban- quet and reception, we all go to Washington. We thought it a good plan and voted to go. We held one food sale, and the proceeds from the play, “ Messmates,” was also to be used toward the trip. Although we were successful in both undertakings we had far from money enough for all the class to go, so the trip was abandoned. We held our banquet at the Parker House, May 21, at which many delightful toasts were given. Miss Fuller said that she thought we were very fortunate in having a man like Mr. Emerson for our principal. A gentleman who visits many of the surrounding schools said to me, that he never knew of a school THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC where the pupils thought as much of their Principal as did the pupils of the Stoneham High School. I do not know about the other schools but I do know that he spoke the truth when he said that we all loved Mr. Emerson, for we surely do. This winter the girls of the school have been al- lowed the use of the Armory twice a week in which to play basket ball. The inter-class games were always interesting and sometimes very exciting. In April when the honors were given out we were much pleased when Mr. Keenan and Mr. Dempsey received first and second honors respec- tively. It has oft’ been said that stolen fruits are sweet- est, so thought five Senior boys when they found a partly filled freezer of ice cream in the chemical laboratory one morning. Later in the day when the freezer was carried over to the Dean school, the teachers there, who had planned to have the cream for their lunch, were sadly disappointed. Of course suspicion pointed to the High School. A few days later five Senior boys were told by Mr. Emerson, that those who danced must pay the fiddler, so these same boys very cheerfully and readily paid for the ice cream that had so mysteri- ously disappeared. It was rumored that a Senior girl also knew where some of the cream went to. I cannot tell you who it was but perhaps Miss Waite could give some information. With .the coming of spring one’s thoughts turn to poetry, and we discovered that Paul and Victor were poets of great ability, who spent their spare mo- ments in writing “ Odes to Someone ’ but it seems they should have been called “ Odes to Everyone,” considering the number of girls who received them. When the report cards went out on June 18, we realized that our school days were indeed over, and that we should soon enter into a new life so differ- ent in many respects from the old. We thank the teachers and our principal for all that they have done for us during the past four years, and in the years to come let us ever bear in mind our motto and keep working, “ Ever Onward;’ to higher and nobler things. Viola Mae Smardon. Class Prophecy One dark and stormy day, having little to do, I walked to the book case and taking one of the nearest books, sat down before the open fireplace to read. The book which I had taken was Lowell’s “Vision of Sir Launfal,” and as I sat there I won- dered why I had chosen such a book, but being comfortably settled, did not bother to change it. I did not commence at the beginning, but pondered upon the bits of poetry that came before my eyes as the pages fell open first one way and then an- other. The first passage that caught my eye was, “ Now is the high tide of the year And whatever of life hath ebbed away Comes flooding back with ripply cheer. ” Then the events of my life for the past thirty years came flooding back to me. It was thirty years since I graduated from the Stoneham High School — thirty years— during the last fifteen years I had no news of my many classmates. Another passage caught my eye, “What is so rare as a day in June, Then if ever come perfect days. " Why did everything persist in turning my thoughts back so many years to that perfect day in June — the day when we had to say farewell to Stoneham High and each other and set out on our courses in life. My thoughts would dwell upon the graduation day and the graduates. What had be- come of them? Were the memories of that day as dear to them as to me ? Thus I sat and pondered, first on one and then another of the happenings of that eventful day. Suddenly my thoughts were in- terrupted by a voice, one that sounded far off. The voice continued but I could not catch the words. Slowly it became more and more distinct and as I turned my head, I saw a tiny lady rising from the flames in the fireplace. She was dressed in red and yellow just the color of the flames. As she repeatedly nodded and bowed, she herself seemed a part of the fire, but she was not, for she was talk- ing, and at last made her way out of the fireplace and stood on the hearth before me. Then I noticed a tiny wand in her hand and smiling I heard her say, “Oh yes, I know you are anxious to hear about your classmates and it lies within my power to show you all you wish to know, but first you must promise not to be disappointed if some have not done as well as you expected, nor envious if some have surpassed your expectations. If they seem to you to have changed, I assure you that at heart they are the same boys and girls who graduated in 1912.” As she finished speaking, she raised her arm and at once the flames in the fireplace changed their shape and slowly framed a picture. THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC 1. The stock exchange was just closing and the members were passing out upon their various ways, some in automobiles, some in carriages and some walking. The last to leave was a small, active gentleman who took his departure in a large auto, and, unlike most of the members, drove it himself. The picture slowly changed to a quiet, city street, one side lined with spacious residences and facing a large park on the other side. Truly a locality of wealth and refinement. An auto came up the street and, stopping in front of one of the houses, permitted a gentleman to alight. He ascended the steps of the house and just before entering, pauses and turns about to gaze over the park. At this point two small children rush out of the house to embrace their father, followed by a somewhat elderly lady who affectionately greets her husband. As they stand there I recognize in him the man who left the stock exchange a short while before. There seemed to be something familiar about this small but important looking individual. Certainly this could be no other than Nelson Dempsey, and I now recall reading in the paper but a short time before of the fabulous wealth of ex-Mayor Dempsey of San Francisco, but had never dreamed that “Demp”’ was playing the business game as success- fully as he used to play around second base in the old High School days. But who could be the com- panion of this successful man? I should never have guessed if she had not turned and embraced him in the same old way, without doubt it is— or was— Marion Bean. 2. The flame died down, only to rise again, this time showing a vast assembly. On the platform a very stout woman was apparently engaged in a fiery harangue. From her threatening attitude and gestures and the uneasy manner in which the few men present viewed her success in convincing the women in the audience, I surmised this must be a suffragette. Who could this militant suffragette be? Surely none of the demure maidens of 1912. A large banner was unfurled bearing the inscrip- tion:— VOTE FOR WOMEN DOWN WITH CITY GOVERNMENT. DOWN WITH GRAFT. VOTE FOR OUR LEADER HELEN ROSSON BOYCE FOR MAYOR. Could this stout suffragette leader be the slight, quiet, unassuming Helen Boyce of my school days ? 3. The flame again almost died out but immedi- ately flashed up again showing this same gathering in marching order. Rank upon rank of suffragettes led by Miss Boyce. A slight inoffensive looking man tagged along behind at the head of the band beating upon a large base drum upon which was painted in large letters, COGAN’S MILITANT SUFFRAGETTE BAND. and I realized that Helen had won over at least one member of our class to the suffragette cause. 4. The next picture showed a crowded city theatre. The size and expectant attitude of the audience indicated some unusual attraction. As I watched the bulletin change, what was my over- whelming surprise to read Signora Estherino Patcho and her troupe of trained pigs would next appear. It was hard to recognize the dashing person who appeared on the stage as my prim classmate and the change was made more apparent by the rapidity and vim with which she put her troupe through their performance. 5. All at once the fire seemed to burn unusu- ally bright and I was at a loss to account for it because the picture showed a cemetery. This shortly explained itself when my attention was at- tracted by a sign which read, MAE BUTLER successor to JOSEPH BUTLER, COAL AND WOOD)., All coal guaranteed undpp, the Purp Food and Drug Act of 1912. So Mae was carrying on her father’s coal business but not without help for, strange to say, one of the most prominent objects in the yard was a lawn mower (Longmore) which showed evidence of long and faithful wear. 6. The neif.t picture showed another familiar scene. I easily recognized the large, old mansion on Main street, which I passed every day on my way to school. This looked just as natural as ever even to Arad working about the lawns. I wondered what connection Arad could have with our class. Upon leaning forward in my chair to get a closer view I discovered a number of elderly ladies on the piazza. One of these in particular seemed to be the person in authority. After several minutes of study I was still at a loss to explain this picture when my tiny friend of the wand came to the rescue by announc- ing that this was the Stoneham Old Ladies’ Home, a model institution which had been successfully managed for many years by Miss Viola Smardon. THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC So Viola had found her life work in the home town. The only persons, however, who seemed to be enjoying themselves were two sprightly old ladies who were holding an animated conversation with Arad. These two seemed to be younger than the rest and retained enough of their youthful ap- pearances so that I was able to recognize in them two of my former classmates — Teresa Callahan and Mabel Hines. What a happy trio in the Old Ladies’ Home — Viola, Teresa, Mabel. 7. The fire dying down I threw on a stick of wood which quickly burned and snapped in a very lively manner. This I thought must preface an interest- ing scene, and so it proved. The scene showed a vast crowd wending its way to a big amphitheatre. There must be some unusual attraction. A large bill-board announced that “Kid McCormack”, Stoneham’s pride, would battle with John Jackson for the world’s championship. Martin Harry Mc- Cormack is the only man in the class of 1912 with a world-wide reputation. 8. When the fire flashed up again I saw the picture of a court room, with the court in session. By the drawn face of the prisoner I judged it was a case of life or death. A lawyer was so eloquently pleading with the jury that I could see tears on the faces of the jurors. After being charged by the judge they retired but immediately returned bring- in a verdict which showed that the lawyer was suc- cessful. From the shower of congratulations I judged this must be a lawyer of considerable fame. Strange to say this scene brought vividly to mind the mock trial of the Webster Debating Society in 1912 and pondering upon that I knew that this must be Paul Keenan. Court being adjourned he passed out making his way to a confectionery store. From the store he passed along the street, finally entering a commodious but somewhat old-fashioned house. He was met at the door by a lady to whom he handed the box of confectionery. Who could be the consort of this distinguished man? The box of sweets gave the clue. It must be Doris Duplin, who, I remember, was always interested in Sweets. 9. The scene changed to the polo grounds in New York City. The Red Sox were playing the deciding game with the Giants for the world’s championship. From the score board I saw that it was the ninth inning — tie score and the Red Sox at the bat with two out. A large, earnest looking player took his place at the plate and hit the first ball pitched into the centre field bleachers for a home run. The game was soon over and that hit had won the world’s championship. This picture faded into an- other showing a small railroad station in a country village. Upon the arrival of a train a man alighted to receive a most enthusiastic reception from the villagers. He seemed to be the ball player of the other picture. He made his way to an auto in which sat an elderly lady. As they drove off some- thing in the lady’s manner attracted my attention. I knew this must be Ruth Blodgett for no one could have so closely impersonated her. But who could be the man ? My thoughts wandered for, then I remembered Wesley Thompson and his batting on the High School team. This must be Wesley and although I knew that the Red Sox had a player by the name of Thompson, I had never connected the two together. He must be returning to his farm at the close of the baseball season. 10. The fire having died down I watched the embers and saw there a picture of a large summer hotel. It was the dinner hour and the guests were flocking to the dining-room. Upon a raised plat- form was an orchestra of three pieces. There were two ladies and a gentleman. The gentleman, who led the orchestra, I immediately recognized as Victor Barwood. I probably should not have given the ladies further thought had I not been struck by the incessant grinning of one of them who played a violin. This reminded me so much of my class- mate, Ella Nutting, that I felt sure it must be she. The other lady, who played a cornet, was very stout and I could see nothing familiar about her. I should have passed her by, had not my tiny friend again come to my aid and reminded me that this was Inez Kinsley. 11. The picture now changed to a large city church. It was apparently Sunday morning. The church was filled to overflowing and I knew that some eminent divine would preach. The preacher was a large, athletic man who seemed to present his ideas in such a way that he won many converts. Suddenly my eye caught a bulletin in one corner and I read the preacher’s name. Could it be pos- sible? Rev. Rayford Anderson Mann, D. D., Ph.D. Subject : “ The Kicks of Life and How to Buck It.” 12. The fire had now died almost out and I saw a very dim picture of what seemed to be a chicken farm. The picture was so dim that I could not distinguish the characters, to say nothing of the chickens, and I would have passed it by, had not my tiny friend informed me that this was the abode of two of my classmates, Doris Dowdell and Frank Mitton, who had formed a double partnership ; of matrimony and chicken farming. 13. At this point I again replenished the fire and it burned up in a way— shooting out so many sparks, that I was reminded of the days we, in class. THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC were experimenting with wireless telegraphy. The picture this time showed a small room all around the walls and floor of which were scattered me- chanical devices of every kind. Seated at a wire- less instrument was a small man with a long, old- fashioned beard, experimenting with the instru- ment. Every now and then, he would jump from his seat and answer the call of a very stout old lady who seemed to be his wife. It was plainly evident that he was “ henpecked.” Who could this be ? From the general appearance of the man and the multitude of the mechanical devices scattered around the room, it needed but a moment’s thought to know that this was Stuart Ward. His wife was so entirely beyond my thoughts that I forgot her and should have entirely passed her by, had not my tiny friend again furnished the key to the situation by reminding me that this was Doris Waitt. So Doris was an inventor’s wife. 14. By this time the fire had again died down and I thought I must have seen all of my old class- mates. In going over the list of them in my mind I found three missing, Gertrude Reynolds, Mary Fallon and Laura Baldwin. Just at this point a very dim picture showed itself. It was a school- room, teachers and scholars busy with the work of the day. This, I thought, answers for them. Laura, Gertrude and Mary are school teachers. I looked for a long while into the fire hoping to see a picture that would show me some of my teachers of the old days and was about to stir up the fire when— crash— I awakened to find that my book had dropped from my lap to the floor. Then it was all a dream. Dropping off to sleep with the book in hand, in my dreams I had seen my class- mates in the many and varied walks of life and the tiny lady who introduced the pictures was but the fancy of a dream. Clifford Elliot Patten. Class Notes 1912 The class banquet held at the Parker House was a most enjoyable event. The evening was spent with games and music. Does the president like frozen pudding? He does ! ! Were there four rows of ferns or five, Patten ?
