Emerson (First Honor — Miss Mary Hylan) They called him a teacher Because he was one Who knew, and knowing, taught. With his fingers he drew in the sand The angles and lines of theorems Then he drew and redrew again, And forebearing guided the hand Uncertain and slow That faltering strove To follow his example. Ah! patient, so patient he was! Impartial alike to the quick and the dull, Scholarly too, and above them But still to the erring a friend. Deliberate and yet Having known youth, did not forget. And because he could see to the years beyond With eyes more experienced than theirs Along by the way in the dust Where he feared lest the turf grow sparse and thin And their footsteps pass on and be lost He fashioned the posts of his teaching. They loved him as one Whose standards were placed above stooping. And yet when unthinking They trampled his citadels down He could, even then when they asked, forgive. It mattered but little that they were not his Or still even less that the time was brief And would soon perhaps be forgotten In his mind he tried them as men As the men that he wished them to be. They called him a teacher Because he was one Who knew, and knowing taught. But in the years that followed When the span was a score and ten Though the lines he had draw n were dim And the book forgotten and worn They remembered the words he had spoken But clearest of all, they remembered him. CHARLES J. EMERSON To whom, in grateful appreciation of thirty years of service as Principal of the Stoneham High School we dedicate this issue of the “Authentic” THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Pageantry (Second Honor — Miss Hazel Blanchard) “Laugh, for the time is brief, a thread but the length of a span, Laugh, and be proud to belong to the old proud pageant of man.” Stoneham is about to commemorate her two hundredth anniversary by a pageant. How much more logical it is to celebrate by an observance of this sort than by a so-called good time — here today, gone tomorrow. The idea of pageantry has taken root firmly in this country. Even the hard-headed economist has been convinced that it pays. Any movement which becomes truly prominent must do so because the great mass of people is behind it. At the same time, public opinion has always need of the leader who will develop and reveal its characteristic sentiment. This has been particularly true of pageantry. Louis Napoleon Parker revived the pageant just twenty years ago on an anniversary occasion in Sherborne, England. America was not far behind, for in the same year a performance for a similar purpose was given in Cornish, New Hampshire, with Percy MacKaze as a leading spirit. Let us not suppose that these men in- vented the pageant. “Nothing is new, " said Emerson, “except what has been forgotten. However, they deserve great credit, for the ability to renew what has been forgotten often eq uals Inven- tion. As far back as we have any records, people have had processions and festi- vals. In trying to express their glor- ious past, they found usual words and actions inadequate. They began to realize, too, that pantomime and grace of movement helped to express intan- gible things such as peace or prosperity. In those long-ago days very little was done in the way of pageants or drama of any kind except through religion. Authors and actors were usually mem- bers of the clergy who were endeavor- ing to teach the people. In the Middle Ages, the English, while retaining the ; r religious presen- tations, showed an increasing tendency to dramatize their legends and folk- lore ajscv. These perfiofrinandes were usually out-clcor affairs, with such he- roes as Robin Hood and Saint George. When history did not provide the desir- able material for such exhibitions, and especially Avhen it did not teach ethics clearly enough, the morality play came into favor. It was performed on a stage moved on wheels from town to town. It is interesting to note that such a stage was called a pageant. The poorer folk and country people attended these crude out-door perform- ances, while the nobles and kings were entertained by a fanciful and unreal drama built around the dance. This was called the mosque, and the char- acters in it represented virtues or vires, such as Justice, Hypocrisy, Heresy, Pietz. As in all development of drama and act, these forms of entertainment were obliged to pass through various periods of disfavor and unpopularity. The churches, which had done so much to foster pageantry, did their best to sup- press it. The Puritans were most zeal- ous in this work of opposition. Never- theless, we find that, on the whole, when- ever the people had an awakened inter est in history, dancing, acting, or any of the humanities, they expressed it in pageants. Perceiving new changes with each age, it has finally evolved as a method of giving the meaning of some history in a way effective and helpful to those observing it. Since history lias no plot, the pageant is of a loose sequence. Interest is not lost by this procedure, for methods not al- lowable in strict drama may “bring home” an idea to the audience. At the beginning of our own cen- tury, as we have seen, all sorts of pag- eants became immensely popular. The community pageant now aims to get the people of that community playing together, in the hope that they will work together. Everyone has his op- portunity to be of assistance, from the Indian who will “ ' die for the cause” to the spectators whose chief duty will be to allow themselves to be carried for- ward on a wave of enthusiasm which will sweep the performance to a glor- ious success. Imagine the effect on the commu- nity of driving out Poverty, Ignorance, Slavery, Sin, the Destroying Forces.

Tumbuckle Whitney Synopsis: Robert Clinton is sent by his father in search of his brother, who has disappeared into the densely wood- ed plains of Manitoba. He has been given thirty days to accomplish the task. The end of the third day finds him on the beautiful, sunlit waters of that broad and sparkling expanse called Lake Manitoba, making his way slowly and cautiously northward. The frail canoe, however, is too much for its in- experienced master to guide against the increasing wind, now almost blow- ing at gale force. After making safe landing, the lad stretches out for a lit- tle sleep beneath a moaning pine tree. Almost immediately, he hears harsh voices, and, upon peering through the underbrush, spies a long grey canoe slowly working its way against the wind. This craft is propelled by two young men, engaged in hurried con- versation. From a few scattered words which Robert is able to understand, he learns that these two men are the most to be dreaded of any he could possibly encounter. He also learns that they are about to beach their canoe, and commence a thorough search for him. They land and beat the brush for a few minutes in the hopes of discovering some hidden trace of their prey. Sud- denly Robert Clinton, lying on his stomach, sees the younger of the two creep around the point and discover the temporary camp. There was a moment of hesitation. The approaching villain stopped and whistled to his companion. Another minute elapsed. The second man round- ed the point and joined the first. Then there was a long pause, during which the villains seemed to be devising plans or plotting some scheme. Bob Clinton was not without weap- ons, but he somehow hated to think of drawing that heavy pistol from his belt and letting it loose on the two intrud- ers. If they attempted to distroy his new canoe, or threaten his own life, h e determined that he should spare no lead until the affair was over and he was satisfied as to the outcome. The two men, having decided on some mode of attack, walked over to the ca- noe, and, one on each side, gave it a tremendous shove out into the break- ers. For nearly twenty feet it main- tained its equilibrium, in the serf, but finally, rolling in a gulley, it capsized and deposited its heavy luggage in the foaming sea. The men, waiting only to witness the fruit of their misdeeds, turned about and after walking some distance down the beach, entered the thicket in hopes of cutting their prey off from any chance of escape through the dense growth of bushes and vines. In spite of the boy’s determination to protect his property, he still felt timid about pulling his gun. He knew that if he, by some twist in the law, were found guilty of murder, — that would be worse than a brief hold-up by two strangers. And also, if his first shot did not reach its mark, he would have but little chance of escape from the aroused enemy. He therefore kept quiet. From far down a wooded slope, he now and then heard a voice, or a rustle of leaves, or the snap of a twig. At first thought, he considered his departure from that remote shore quite doubtful. He believed also that if, he were quickly being closed in upon by a detachment of Whitney’s band, and if his canoe were drifting, bottom up out into the lake, the chances of find- ing his brother were few. With a ca- noe such as he had purchased, — light, sturdy and rugged, but a few powerful strokes of the paddle would leave all danger behind. He saw the long craft that had brought his enemies, lying idle on the sand a quarter of a mile up the beach. Robert slowly arose, listened inten- tively for some sound of his pursuers, and then advanced from his secluded shelter into the open. Cutting across a narrow strip of land, he approached the abandoned canoe, and then listen- ed. The sun had set, and the moon, already overhead, began to cast sil- very light on the lake, and on the sand. From behind a screech owl pierced the dull silence of twilight with a shrill call to its mate. How beautiful and picturesque it seemed! How could THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC danger lerk in a wood so peaceful, — on a shore so quiet. Now and then the youth heard a rus- tle in the leaves, — some restless wood- chuck or perhaps a hungry bobcat in search of a luckless squirrel. From out across the lake, an occasional splash was heard, — the vicious leap of a carp or rock-bass. He longed for a quiet fishing trip on that broad expanse of dark blue sea. Yet this was not the time for such thoughts to be traversing his mind! Behind him was the woods; before him, the sea ; and at his feet, a long, low canoe, loaded to capacity with every sort of equipment. Quietly the youth raised the stern of the craft and tried vainly to move it. Its weight was too great. He hurled the contents on the sand and again tried. This time it slipped silently ov- er the pebbles into the ripples, ever running up on the beach. Carefully, Bob seated himself in the stern and noiselessly paddled northward. As Robert Clinton made his way across Lake Manitoba, the moon sank, the sun rose and likewise sank. Three long weary days passed beneath his paddle, and three chilly nights warned him of the approaching winter. The fourth day arrived and found the youth wandering along the bank of a muddy river that wound its way southward to the great lake. As evening drew on and a heavy fog settled on the water, the boy drove the prow of his canoe be- neath some overhanging willows and ventured to eat a bit of cheese and bis- cuit, which he had slung in a packet over his shoulder. He had just finished his scanty meal, when he thought he saw, gliding along the opposite shore, a long object, without doubt, a canoe. He arose to obtain a better view, but the dense clouds had closed in, and the object was lost. He did not wait for any preliminary preparations, but shoved off, and, with all his might skimmed over the rough sea toward the distant shore. This he soon reached, but did not encounter the strange ca- noe which he so hoped contained his sought for brother. He was in dispair. He thought that possibly his whole three days journey would be in vain. He listened a mo- ment. Everything was still. Slowly he drew forth his heavy pistol, raised it above his head and fired. The report echoed from shore to shore and then died out. Once more silence settled on the wilderness. But Bob was not satis- fied. He knew there must be some one in that desolate region who could give him fresh supplies and temporary com- panionship. Again he fired. The echo died away as before, but instead of si- lence resulting, from out of the thicket at his side, a flash of flame darted forth, and the luckless youth pitched oyer into the muddy current. From the same thicket, two men broke forth, each with a double barrel- ed gun and a long hunting knife pro- truding from his belt. The first, tall, sunburnt and rugged; the second, some- what shorter, but also tanned like leath- er. As the two approached the water, the former gave a startled exclamation. “Look,” he cried, “it ' s Bob!” “Bob? You’re crazy.” “Bob! My brother,” cried Walter Clinton, as he darted into the stream and dragged forth his young brother, all cramped and twisted with pain, from the swirling waters. “Bob, I thought you were from Whitney’s gang.” “Bandage that arm with the cloth in my kit,” commanded Walt, “and then give him some water, poor kid.” The cramped form slowly turned over and gazed at his brother towering above him. “Walt,” he said at last, “there’s a bullet in one of my lungs, I guess” — and then he fainted. It was a sad little party that paddled over the bosom of Lake Manitoba in the last days of September, and a sad- der one yet that wound its way among the Vermont hills in the ever speeding noon express. As the long train again came steaming and panting along its narrow pathway, old Mr. Clinton sat uneasily on the carriage seat with a huge chestnut horse before him. The train came to a standstill. Two black porters carefully lowered a long stetch- er from the mail car and placed it in the carriage. As the carriage rattled up the long, winding country road, with Walt and his father on the seat and the suffer- ing boy, bound in bandages, in the back, a voice from the rear said almost in a whisper, “Who was the man with you, up there in that wilderness, Walt?” “That,” replied Walter, “that was Turnbuckle Whitney.” 8 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Callers Once, while I was sitting under an old apple tree, the queerest feeling came over me. Soon I heard a low rumbling noise, as of thunder, coming nearer, nearer and louder. I began to tremble. Surely it couldn’t be thunder. Thunder hasn’t such a hollow sound. Oh, what did it mean! I thought of all things I had read about in fairy tales, but nothing seemed quite like it. May- be, — maybe my end was at hand! I dared not think, for fear I might imag- ine the right explanation. In the midst of my surmising, the noise broke off with a crash ! Then suddenly, from everywhere it seemed, from the branches of the tree, from the ground, from every possible place came small, hideous things, — for I know not what else to call them. To be sure they had two long, snakey arms and legs and squinting eyes that seemed to peer into one’s very soul, but to call them men, would be an insult. They stared at me until I thought I should sink into the ground. Dancing clum- sily around me, wriggling and squirm- ing, they made me feel like squirming myself. I tried to get up, but I seemed to be glued to the spot. They still con- tinued to wriggle, reminding me of eels and snakey things. As if the thought was not enough, they drew snakes from their pockets, and " wound the creepy things around their arms and bodies. They seemed to enjoy the sport im- mensely, but as for my part, I’d rather not have been there. All this time they had not made a sound or given an explanation of their precedure or their presence there, ob- viously to aggregate me, — and they certainly succeeded. But why were they here acting so? I tried to recall all the wicked things I had done. I remembered once of having told a lie to my mother about eating the green apples which had given me so much pain; and of another time when my uncle (who was always finding fault with me) having called, I dropped a banana peel in front of the door, which action resulted in his having to stay home with a sprained ankle for a while. While I had been repenting my sins, my tormentors had been gathering thorns from nearby rosebushes, but when they started to prick me, I jump- ed up mighty quickly, I tell you. Looking beyond my late acquaintan- ces, I saw another of their company coming, evidently their leader, for he was dressed better than his companions and was on a horse. Such a small horse. He looked as though he might break down any minute, on those thin and trembling legs. But of all hideous things! This newcomer outdid his sub- jects, everyone. I thought that now, surely, my fate would be announced. Oh dear, what should I do! But just then my foot slipped — and well it might have for my legs had got the spirit of the place and were shaking more than I cared for — and I started rolling down the bank. Thud! I land- ed on the floor just in time to hear my mother say, “Time to get ready for school !” G. C. The Lure of Provincetown By this I do not mean to say that the house of Provincetown are in the least alluring for I certainly do not re- member them so, but the great, beauti- ful, lashing sea coming roaring up onto the sand was the alluring part of Prov ncdtown. The ride over, I re- member little of. On facts ten years ago ones memory is apt to fail. I do, however, remember the accommodation that stopped for us when we arrived. Our house was like the other houses at Provincetown. Its front yard was of yellow sand, not of grass, and beyond this stretched the sea. Every morning we would wake to the roar of the sea, of the foamy billows, After breakfast it was nothing but of the cries of the sea gulls, freedom all day. We would play in and out the water finding oysters to cook. This was the water whose one draw- back was crabs. Never have I gotten over a hostility towards crabs since one grabbed me by the foot. The approach of afternoon usually meant a rido or walk in the sand dunes. If you have never walked there you do not know of the delicious sensation of having one shoe full of sand. It is a desert, whose little tufts of grass stick 9 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC up at intervals, but the rest is all sand. At noon we dined away from home. We went across the street to a small restaurant where the other people that we knew ate. Viola, our Portugese friend, was alwaj’S there. When we first came we were impress- ed by a large group of artists who sat on the beach, their various casals turn- ed towards the bright blue sea, their brushes working. TOAST TO MEMBERS OF 10 ENG.

Instructor — What is the quickest way to produce sawdust? Student — Why-er-er- Instructor — Come! Come! Use your head, use your head. “Are you sure these field glasses are high-power?” inquired the timber cruis- er of the shop-keeper. “Say, fellow,” replied the enthusias- tic salesman, “when you use those glas- ses anything less than ten miles away looks like it’s behind you.” After lunch we often had a boat ride. Father sat at the oars and mother and I at either end. My sister, who seemed to fear sea riding, and doubt the safety of boats usually visited the owner of the house where we stayed who was a pleasant, elderly woman whose son owned the tiny yellow rowboat, Virgin- ia. I hope to go to Provincetown again. S. L. ERASMUS Erasmus is a solemn man. He never deigns to smile at all From out his picture hanging on The moulding of the study wall. At length, therefore, I took him down From off his dusty picture pin And hung him on another knob Where people come more often in. But even then he could not smile Or call his endless writing done; Indeed I thought his countenance Less happy than his former one. And so at last I put him back Among his more beloved books Where there are none but them and me To care how his expression looks. M. H. ’25.

The marked success that the greater number of the teams have met with, is really extraordinary for a school of our size and finances. The football, field hockey, ice hockey and base ball teams all had fine seasons and while the basketball team was very inexperienced the boys had their baptism and will do much better in the years to come. The football team played an interest- ing schedule of games and won for it- self much prestige in the vicinity of Boston.

H. S. 10 — W. H. S. 6 Stoneham High lost the first game of the season to the Winchester aggrega- tion by the score of 10-6. Robertson was on the mound for Stoneham and did not appear to be ready to throw them up as he did last year. He was relieved by Anderson in the sixth. Tansey, who pitched near- ly the whole game for the visitors, was not at his best, but was just good enough to win. The local team’s in- field was rough and did not work to- gether well. Captain Ralph Duplin, by one of the longest hits ever seen on the local grounds, scored a home run with no- body on base. Although the Stoneham team hit Tan- sey safely eleven, times they did not seem to be able to turn the hits into runs and the result was defeat. The summary: S. H. S.

S. 4 A large crowd of Stoneham’s baseball fans travelled to Woburn and was re- warded by seeing the team emerge from the field of mud on the long end of an 8-4 score. Robertson, Stoneham’s Walter John- son, had a good day causing no less than two would-be “Babes” to fan the breeze. Horace Ford, who covered the initial sack in the absence of Don Hunt, play- ed sweet ball, and in addition to laying down a nice bunt, socked out a single over second base. The local team’s infield showed much improvement over its previous ragged exhibition, and Kinsley teamed up with Frazier in big league style. The Woburn boys put the boots to many a chance and had seven errors in the last column. Brock caught his usual good ball, keeping the team on its toes at all stages of the game. The summary: S. H.

HUTCHINSON CLASS OF 1925 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Brock, who made a remarkable one hand stab on this play. He next threw on into the dirt and allowed a man to score but the best the man at the bat could do was to hit to the infield. Bobby came through with four hits out of four trips to the plate and he also chalked up a pair of tallies for his team. Jack Neilson had a tough day at the hot corner and gave way to Hoddy Chase, who looked as if he could hold down the position if he were given the regular assignment. Wakefield again threatened in the ninth, but with two men on and two away, the best that Flannigan could do was to knock out a long fly to Joe White, who made the catch easily. The summary: S. H.

Although Eobby had an off day in the box, he rapped out two of these hard bingles. Eobby was the last man in the batting order last season, but has the highest average on the team this year. Tansey himself got as many hits as the Stoneham team, having a perfect day at the bat. Eobby was relieved in the seventh frame by Bud McCall, Stoneham’s first left hand flinger in many years, and he held the opposing team scoreless for the remainder of the game. The defeat may have been due to the absence of Coach Morrill, who went on a fishing trip during vacation week, but at any rate Tansey was really too good to lose. The summary: S. H.

S. 5 In a game played at Stoneham, Pun- chard High from Andover succeeded in squeezing out a 5-4 over the wearers of the blue and white. Anderson started his first game for Stoneham against the best pitcher that the boys had faced this year and succeeded in holding his own for five frames in good style. In the sixth frame, however, he was bat- ted from the mound and Robertson took up the task of pitching. He pitch- ed good enough ball to win but a wild throw by Ford in the ninth inning was the undoing of matters. This forced the game to go extra innings. The game was temporarily stopped by rain in the eighth, but it cleared up so that it could be finished. The summary: Stoneham got sweet revenge on the Punchard team and came through in fine style, winning 5-3. Anderson again opposed the Andover team and incidentally their pitcher, Dyer. He was evidently not right from the start and withdrew in the fourth, in favor of Stoneham’s old reliable Robertson. This was the first game of the season that Robby has failed to get at least one hit off his opponents offerings. Don Hunt showed traces of his last year’s hitting power by lacing out a pretty triple. The infield with Chase at third show- ed to good advantage, and Hoddy turn- ed in one especially nice play on a foul fly which he caught while running with his back to the ball. The summary: s. H.

S. 2 In the best game that has been play- ed on the Pomeworth Street grounds in many a season, Belmont High, with the snappiest schoolboy infield that has made its appearance this year, defeated Stoneham 2-1. The game was a tough one for Robby to lose, even more so than for the rest of the team, because he pitched winning ball, allowing only seven scattered hits and fanning 14. Stoneham scored in the last part of the initial frame, on a single by Robby, a double by Ralph, and a fumble by the Belmont short fielder, on Brockie’s smash to him. Brock and Duplin were left stranded, however, as both Hunt and Frazier popped up to Long. In its half of the second, Belmont was handed a run, after Duplin had cut off a run by a beautiful throw in to the plate. Long, the Belmont second sack- er, having gone to second on the throw, set out to purloin third. Robertson threw to the bag, and Chase saw the play too late to prevent the ball rolling to the end of the bleachers. Long scor- ed. Kinsley batted in hard luck all the afternoon, giving the Belmont infield- ers chances for sensational stops. The tenth round started with the score at one all. Robertson made the first two batters look foolish and fan- ned both of them. The next batter was safe on a doubtful decision ; he stole second, and scored when Napoli caught Smith If 3 0 . . 2 0 0 Total 32 4 30 10 2 B. H.

Robertson pitch- ed air tight ball and until he was taken out in the ninth, no runs were chalked up for the losers. The rookie battery, consisting of McCall pitching and Rich- ards catching, allowed Lexington to put across their only tally which came with two out in the ninth inning. This vic- tory only furthers the general belief that Belmont and Stoneham are the log- ical contenders for the championship. Brock got four bingles out of five trips to the rubber and played a good game in the field as well. The summary : S. H. S. field.

S. H. S. 15 — R. H. S. 1 In a slow, wierd game on a dusty field at Pomeworth Street, the Stoneham High School defeated Beading High by the score of 15 to 1. The game was so long drawn out that it was necessary to call it at the end of the seventh inning. Bobertson pitched well for Stoneham, holding the Beading boys to four safe- ties, while the local team on the other hand showed a persistant tendency to hit them “where they aint.” The summary: S. H.

S. 9 — L. H. S. 5 Stoneham High won its third League game of the season, defeating Lexing- ton 9 to 5. Although Stoneham was clearly superior, their work was ragged at times. The entire team seemed ov- er confident, indulging in some listless work. Stoneham did nothing in the first ex- cept for Duplin, who was stopped at second trying to stretch a routine single into a double. In the second they put across two markers. Brock led off with a two bagger, took third on Hunt’s out, and scored on Frazier’s rap to the third baseman, the latter throwing wide of the plate. When the catcher hurled into right field, Frazier took second. He immediately stole third and ambled in on a passed ball. Lex- ington got one run on two clean hits and an error. In the third Smith belted a smoking liner into left, and stole second. Dup- lin scored him with a single, and made the circuit himself, when the left field- er heaved over the catcher’s head. Two more were chalked up on Stet- son’s boot. Chase reached on Lydiard’s bad throw. After Frazier stole third, Chase finally made up his mind to take second. Both scored on Smith’s ring- ing hit to center. In the fifth Duplin hit beyond the tennis courts, easily making a round trip. Hunt walked, Frazier tripled, and White singled. A grand total of three runs for ' this inning. Smith’s third hit went to waste. In the same inning Lexington got two runs, when Biggi dropped a Texas leaguer just out 20 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC of Kinsley’s reach, the runners scoring from second and third. Stoneham did not score after the fifth. Lexington, on the other hand, added one run each in the seventh and eighth. One was the result of three hits in combination. The other result- ed after a short passed ball, when Brock lost out in a fast race with Lyd- iard. The summary: S. H.

H. S. 2 Last Wednesday, Stoneham High pushed Reading out of the Middlesex League race by defeating them 4 to 2. The game was rather loosely played on account of the very hot day. Stone- ham High’s sluggers had an off day, on- ly collecting four runs. Robertson twirled the entire game for the local boys and fanned twelve. Spear, pitching for Reading, fanned twelve also. In the second inning Stoneham got two runs. Brock hit, was forced to sec- ond by Hunt but the second baseman threw Hunt out at first. Brock then stole third, Frazier drew a pass, and both of them scored on Chase’s nice single. White died out and Smith fan- ned. Reading tied in their half of the in- ning. Rooney fanned, and Doherty died out. Latham got hit by Robert- son, stole second, and tallied on Mer- ritt’s double. Merritt then scored on an error thru Frazier. Spear fanned. Stoneham got their next run in third. Kinsley fanned, Robertson got hit by Spear, went round to third on Duplin’s hit, and scored on Merritt’s error of Brock’s liner. Hunt was thrown out at first and Frazier fanned. In the seventh, Robertson scored again. He hit a nice bingle to short center, then went to second on an error. Duplin sacrificed him to third and he counted on Brock’s hit. The next three up died out. The next game is at Pomeworth St. grounds, Stoneham vs. Belmont, this Saturday afternoon. The summary: S. H.

S. 6 The local boys had their chance at the championship of the Middlesex League, last Saturday, but lost to Bel- mont in a close game. The score was 6 to 5 at the finish in favor of the visi- tors. Quite a gathering of fans was there in spite of the hot day. The sun was very bright and hindered the players in seeing the ball. Robertson pitched the entire game for the Stoneham boys, and twirled a great game fanning 8 men, but his work at the bat was not as good as usual. Kinsley at last came back into his bat- ting stride, and got three hits at four times up. Maguire pitched for Bel- mont. The Stoneham boys seemed to hit him but the infield and outfield played air tight. Stoneham High opened up right away and scored. Kinsley hit, and stole sec- ond. Then just as Robertson laid down a pretty bunt Kinsley circled third and beat Larson’s throw home. Duplin and Brock were thrown out at first. Belmont tied in their half of the in- ning. Napoli hit, was sacrificed to sec- ond by Long, and scored on DeStef- fano’s double to center. Seeor fanned, and Grady got passed, bu f got out steal- ing second. In the second Hawkes got a home run, but nobody was on. In the third, Long and DeStcffano were thrown out at first. Then Secor doubled and came home on Grady’s Texas leag- uer to short right field. Grady was put out stealing second again. Stoneham tallied once in the 4th. Duplin hit, stole second and third, and scored on Brock’s hit. Hunt, Frazier and Chase were thrown out at first. In Belmont’s half of the 4th, DeSteffano and Secor got out, Grady got on first when Kinsley fumbled hi3 fly; he then stole second. Hawkes got the only pass off Robertson. Larson hit safely scor- ing Grady. Eagan fanned. The local boys in the fifth tied the score with two runs. White got to first on the short stop’s error. Smith sacri- ficed him down to second. Kinsley crashed a double to the road, scoring White. He stole third and came home on Robertson’s sacrifice. Duplin flied out to the center fielder. In the 8th, Stoneham gave Belmont a scare ; Duplin singled, stole second, and Brock fanned, but Hunt singled scoring Duplin. Then Frazier crashed one to the short stop who happened in front of it, and doubled Hunt on second cut- ting off Stoneham’s rally. The summary: S. H.

It mattered much to him that our pride and self-respect should be placed with those having the highest of educational standards. To this man, — to this teacher, — to this illustrious yet unawarded master. no expression of appreciation, — no hon- or too high can be given. We who have entrusted to him our cares and troubles, fears and anxieties, little real- ize what invaluable services he has per- formed. It is therefore only 1 fitting that we should, from our innermost hearts, dedicate to our principal, this i ssue of the Authentic, that he may, in some measure, receive the gratitude that every student owes him. 23 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC 1924 “Bob” Harrington is attending New Hampshire State College.
