Tajdor Parents, Friends, Mr. Watson, Teachers and Classmates : We have advanced thus far in the steep ascent of the. lofty mountain of life. We have reached the culmination of our youthful desires. High above us is the zenith of our careers. Below us are but the days aiKl short years of preparation. We are not at the top, but we are climbing. Up to this notch of the peak which we are scaling, we have gone hand in hand. Never has there been a more united, more consistent class than the one which is marching forth today. But soon the blessed ties which have bound us together must be severed. We are fast leaving behind us the mecea of our youthful whims and fantasies. New trails will be blazed, new footpaths will be won. Onward, ev er onAvard, until Ave reach the acme of our ambitions, and, AA’hen at the top, we aauII reflect upon the days, the weeks, the months, 3 ' es, and the A’ears of preparation. | But do AA’e dare to go any farther j Avithout expressing our deepest appre- ciation to those who gave so freely and abundantl}’’ of their ability and means that we might haA e more copious oppor- tunities than they? To 3’ ' Ou, O parents, we express our heart-felt gratitude for the privileges you have given us and the possibilities of undertaking the beginning of the long climb. We realize full3 ' , though it may not haA’e appeared so at times, that we have caused 3mu no small amount of trouble, 3’et somehoAv yon Avere Avilling to bear up under the strain. Then there are our teachers, our prin- cipal, our superintendent, and other school officials. Certainly tlie3 ' deserve our solemn and sincere declarations of the fact that Ave appreciate the trials and tribulations Avith Avhich Ave tested their never-ceasing patience. I laii3 " times we came like lost sheep to them with our mathematical, historical and personal problems, and just as often Ave found our paths made straight and our troubles lightened. But this must be a, simple address of AA elcome. In arranging our program for this afternoon, much thought was giA en to the nature of its contents. We ! have added and subtracted until the finished product measured up to our i ideals. Not 01113% Ave believed, should ! it be of interest to you but in a pecu- ' liar sense it should be a challenge to us and an inspiring summons to the Avorld i of opportunit3 ' but tribulation Avhich I the Apostle John tells ' us is aAvaiting our I approach. j With this thought in mind we entreat j 3’ou to share the procedure of the after- j noon Avith us, and Ave welcome you from the inner-most depths of our hearts to this, the last day ' of our high school j career. reams Charlotte Patch A small boy Avhen asked if he kneAV the definition of a dream replied, “Sure. A dream is movie pictures when you’re asleep.” This is an easy way of su3’- ing “A dream is a series of thoughts, images, or emotions occurring during sleep, or any suming of reality or events occurring to one sleeping,” as the dictionary tells us. Profound and therefore healthy sleep is accompanied by a complete lapse of mentation. It is only when Ave are hav- ing light or troubled sleep that Ave dream. Have 3TOU ever noticed that during a night Avhen “3mu hardly slept a Avink” 3 " ou dreamed a great deal? Dreams, contrary to opinion, do not arise from OA ' er-eating unless that in- dulgence is accompanied by pain. They arise from the stimulation of some sense organ rather than in the brain itself. Patterns made by the dust and the throbbing of blood in the ears can never be wholly Aviped out; scraps of , previous coiiA ' ersation or e ’ents are al- ■ AA’a3’S preslent in the memory. They stimulate the eyes, the ears or memory as the ease may be. Once a dream has [ 2 ] GRADUATION NUMBER started on its journey, it continues its train of thought by the association of ideas. Just as our impressions of events dur- ing the day are most often visual, so we see rather than hear or feel in our dreams. Sight is the first sense to leave and the last to return when we sleep, so our eyes may be stimulated to a great degree and yet we ourselves be undisturbed. The way in which sen- sations other than sight are transform- ed into sight is very interesting. Phys- ical pain is usually “seen” as daggers, or shooting, or a mad dog biting some- one — all of which would cause such pain. The rise and fall of the chest in breathing may be pictured as the flight of birds. The sight of crawling things — eateri)illars, beetles or other insects, indicates as a rule some slight irritation to the skin. You wonder, perhaps, why dreams, however real they seem, are not more lifelike. In our “ while we sleep” there are no restrictions of time nor place. We may be in Stoneham one moment and the next in Europe, Iceland, or Melrose. In one picture we may be seven or eight years of age w ' hile in the next, grey-haired and wrinkled. Our attention is not fixed upon dreaming, our minds wander, and because we fail to concentrate, our thoughts roam from one idea to anoth- er. Only one idea at a time presents itself and when there are no others to contradict and defy it, it impresses us. It seems realistic enough at the time of dreaming but so foolish upon awak- ening. Have you not often awakened to find yourself shivering with fright because of a bad dream? Usually how- ever, you are shivering because you are cold. In reality, there is nothing to fear unless it be pneumonia. There were many and varied ideas regarding dreams in the ancient days. ■Gliosts revisited the earth through that medium and praised, honored, rebuked, or chided as the case might be. If you wished, for any reason, to have a dream, you must go to the places where they lurked. Such places were the tombs of heroes or the temples and shrines of the gods. Dreams were held to be messages from the gods or in Christian lands from the Great God and were interpret- ed as such. Recall, for example, the boy Joseph’s dreams or the father Abra- ham’s and their fulfillment. The modern theory of interpretation is vastly dilferent. It was advanced mainly by Professuer Frend of Vienna and is called psycho-analysis. It states that everyone has two minds, the con- scious and the subconscious. Events or thoughts which are painful to the former are forced to retire into the latter. Yet they do not cease to be active, and one way in which the sub- conscious mind makes itself known is by dreams. During sleep the wall be- tween these two minds weakens and thoughts pass easily from one to the other. There is, however, a certain something which Frend calls a “censor.” Wlien, J)ecause of this censor, dreams are not able to satisfy the sub-conscious mind, hysteria and insanity may result. On the other hand dreams have been the means of clearing up some mental disorders. We hear of the case of the young medical officer who even before the war had a horror of closed-in places such as tunnels and narrow cells. We can imagine the result when, during the war, he was given a spade with which to dig himself out should he be buried alive. His sleep was greatly disturbed by such thoughts until finally, becom- ing ill, he was invalided home. Upon the advice of a physician he tried to remember and record any dreams or thoughts in connection with them which he might have. Shortly after, he dream- ed and awoke to find himself repeating the name “McCann.” Upon investiga- tion this was found to be the name of an old man whom he had often visited in his childhood. On one visit he had been accidentally locked in a narrow chest or closet and had nearly suffo- cated. Although he had been unable to recall the incident, the impression had remained. When the cause was ex- plained he no longer felt any fear. Dreams are said to be the fulfillment of repressed desires. A small child, for example, had been promised a boat ride. Due to the rain, however, he had been disappointed and brooded over his lost ride all da3 Then at night, his desire, seeking vengeance, forced him to dream of sailing all over the lake. This theo- ry illustrates very well by an old prov- erb “Of Avhat does the goose dream” to which the answer is “Maize.” Another definition of a dream is “an experience of waking life having the characteristics of a dream.” We call those who have such experiences “day dreamers.” They are sometimes scorn- ed and ridiculed, sometimes favored and [ 3 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC praised, but usually treated as real hu- man beings, but ones who are unable to keep their minds on the proper sub- jects. “Poor things,” we say. Yet what contributions their dreams have given the world. How Fulton was ridiculed for thinking he could make a boat go by steam! Yet notice the Majestic, the Laconia, or similar boats crossing the Atlantic Ocean — an exi)anse of 3,000 miles in eight fair days. Marconi was thought foolish because he dreamed of talking through great spaces without wires. Yet as we sit in our homes, now- adays, we can turn a dial and hear a tine program from Boston, New York, Wa shington or almost any place we may desire. The Wright brothers dreamed of flying through the air in immense ships. Impossible! Yet they dreamed oil, and now our letters may be carried by air mail from New York to San Francisco, 2,699 miles in thirty-three hours. “In the heart of a man is a thought un- furled. Reached its full span, it will shake the world ; And to one high thought is a whole race wrought. “Not with vain noise the great work grows. Nor with foolish voice, but in repose ; Not is the rush, but in the hush.” Class istory In room seven was Miss Garland, And her pupils loved her greatly. Though she often gave them scoldings. In room four was kind Miss Bessey, Wlio so patiently did teach them. Everything about their Latin, Which they never have forgotten. Soon they held their first elections. President was Millard Taylor, Millard Taylor, the great-hearted. Under him was Beatrice Arrand, Who, Twas told, has since departed To another town near by them. Betty Chase was secretary. And she kept the records finely. Of each meeting that assembled. Grace Folant was made the keeper j Of the money, tho’ but little. It was with great fear and trembling. That they went to all their classes, Especially that of Social Science, j For ’twas held where all the Seniors Sat, and seemed to ridicule them. Many came to their first social, For they were anxious to discover, I How Sub-Freshies could endeavor ' Such a thing as their first social. Nevertheless they made some money, W hich was put into the treasury, And was just a mere beginning, To the sum they since have gathered. i Many hearts were filled with sorrow, I When the much beloved teacher, ; Good Miss Hutchinson, departed j To that land that knows no sorrow. Helen E. Patch Would you ask me for the story. For the story of these Seniors, Seniors very wise and learned. Learned as a Senior can be? Listen then while I repeat it. As I heard it told one morning. Told by Know-It-All, the owlet. From an oak tree by my window. I was told that in September, In the year of two-and-twenty. With Vivian Hatch as its leader. Came the class of twenty-seven. To the Stoneham High School Building. Right outside rooms four and seven. They did find long sheets of paper With the name of every pupil, And the room that he should sit in. How their hearts went pitter-patter. When they walked into their home rooms. And did find their seats so meekly — Now they were just plain sub-freshmen. With June there came the graduation. Of that class of haughty Seniors, Which shall ever be remembered. As the class that had so many. Who could not wait for their commence- ment. To leave High School and get married. So it was the first year ended, But Twas just enough to make them Glad that they had four years more. Back they came the next September, After the long summer session. Some of them sat with Miss Davis, In room eight of kind Miss Davis, Who their Algebra did teach them. In room two sat all the others. With Miss Hodgden for their teacher. But after her first year was ended. She did leave them to get married. They did hold their next elections In room three of kind Miss Ryan. I was told that for their leader. They unanimously voted [ 4 ] GRADUATION NUMBER To again choose Millard Taylor. Helen Patch was Vice President. Secretary, Wendell Packard, While Malcolm Munger was elected To take care of all the money. It was in their Freshman year, That they had that famous teacher. Maxwell Michael Monroe Green, who Certainly did like his classes. Above all, that tenth grade English. Mr. Morrill used to teach them General Science in room eighteen; And they’ll always hold in memory The good times they witnessed there, For I was told this class was called, “Mr. Morrill’s Sewing Circle.” ’Twas while Miss Hale still taught them English, That in Assembly Hall they gathered, To present an act of Shakespeare, That shall never be forgotten, Tho’ it wasn’t quite so finished As the play they saw in Boston, Where they all did go in busses. When they saw the Merchant of Venice. When they came the next September, They did find a brand new building. Built beside the High School Building, With a fine new room for cooking. And a very big gymnasium. They were glad to see once more. All the teachers who had taught them. When they still were in the Dean School. The class did once more get divided. Many to room nine did go, While all the rest remained downstairs. With Miss Fowler for a teacher. Elections were the same that year. Except for the Vice President And for this place the class elected Grace Folant, their former Treasurer. That Sophomore year had no excite- ment. Except that some became athletic. And did earn their High School letters. ’Tis true that some had planned a picnic But somewhow it was forgotten. The next year they did sit together. With Mr. Alden for a teacher. And they felt a little bigger. Than they had the years before. Having now Imt two years more. But they were not the only Juniors, For it had been made necessary. To eliminate one year. Which made the class of ’28 Change to ll-’27. So in order to distinguish This class from the other Juniors, ! They did call themselves “Originals,’ And have always lived up to it. j Millard Taylor for the fourth time Was elected President, I And Grace Folant was under him, I Wendell Packard kept the records, I While Helen Fudge was chosen Treas- i urer. i I 1 j That year kept them very busy. For ’twas up to them to publish Their school paper, “The Authentic.” Betty Chase was the chief editor. And did lead her board of helpers To put out a fine edition. Which has almost since been equalled By the other class of Seniors. In December they did sorrow For the loss of that kind teacher, Miss Evelyn Cross, who since the first grade Had very ably taught them drawing. Soon there came the operetta. Which was led by Mr. Dalglish, Who was the new music teacher. I was told it went off finely. And perhaps ’twas on account of All the Juniors that were in it. The Junior Prom in February, Gave the Seniors some amusement; They did capture Millard Taylor, And did keep him just too long To make the evening pleasant for them. The purpose of this misbehavior Was to try to stop the Grand March, But I heard it was a failure, Tho’ they had some fun in trying. At the Senior Play the Juniors Gave the Seniors cause to worry; When ’twas time to raise the curtain, Raymond Dike, the leading man. Not eoywhere could be located. What a sorry bunch of Seniors Anxiously did pace the floor! And Joseph White, quite in a fury. Said to all the Juniors present, “No Authentics shall be sold. Until you bring our leading man back.” This did quite amuse the Juniors, For thej could have easily sold them The next Monday at the High School. Ray was brought back safe and sound. And I was told did quite enjoy His little journey with the Juniors. At graduation, for some reason. They were given by the Seniors, “Original,” a little pig. And they have ever kept it safely In the closet of room thirteen. [ 5 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Mr. Emerson, their fine principal, Left them after thirty years I Of faithful service to the High School, | And the town is greatly debted For the sacrifice he rendered. On the last day of the year. In room thirteen the class did gather, For they’d heard that Mr. Alden Was about to take a wife; And so midst showers of confetti. They did give him a large time-piece, Wishing happiness forever. The summer ended verj ' quickly. And they did once more come together; I This time being lordly Seniors, They did sit in that same room That all the Seniors always sit In — Eoom thirteen of Mr. Thibodeau, Who their Algebra and History Did so patiently instruct them. And it must have been a hard task For they never could remember i That something to the zero power j Always had to equal one. | They did very gladly welcome | Their new principal, ] Ir. Watson, Who did seem so very youthful. At the rooms of the Selectmen. I did hear that Nick, the Towm Clerk, Was kept busy Avith the couples Who came up there to get married. May eighteen was their big evening. For they went to Hotel Kenmore, With the other class of Seniors, To their much looked forward to Ban- quet. In the Crystal Eoom they held it. And the orchestra Avas splendid. Nick Apalakis Avas toast-master And did cause no little laughter When he introduced the speakers With a little song he chanted. But I never have discovered Why there Avere so many absent Of the Seniors the next morning. Thus the story of these Seniors Ended, told me by the owdet. Told by Know-It-All, the OAvlet, From an oak tree by my windoAV. But their race is not yet finished — That was just a mere beginning. And I hope they’ll be successful, In the life they have before them. That at first he Avas mistaken Several times for just a pupil. all of Mr. Skerrye, a new teacher. Taught them Latin in room thirteen. And they ahvnys will remember All the good times that they had there And the stories that he told them Of his teachers in at Cambridge. I did hear that he was married On the eve of ’27. The last elections were as follows: For President they chose Mil Taylor, Who for five long years has led them Through their trials and their troubles. Vice President is Vivian Christie. For the fourth time Wendell Packard Was elected Secretary. Treasurer is Donald Whiston. The Senior Play in January, Which was “Making Dad Beha ' e.” Did very well amuse the people. Who in the Armory AA ' ere gathered. I Avas told that IMalcolm Alunger Made a second William Shakespeare, And Walter Oppen as the butler ShoAved that he was quite an actor. Tl e boys of both the Senior classes Were elected to the places Of the men who run the toAvn ; And KnoAv-It-All said that great busi- ness Was transacted in the evening. We’A ' e earned a lot of money And we are original, too, In fact Ave’ve always been that Avay Since 1922. ' Here are the class statistics ; There in this little book, I I wonder what the class Avould say I If they could get a look. j Ladies and Gentlemen, and others if I any: I In giA ' ing out statistics, I must con- ! fess to have neglected those Avho had i the mumps betAveen 5 and 10 years of j age, to have neglected those Avho had I hydrophobia, and osteomyelitas, also j those Avho have suffered from halitosis, i polyneuritis, and the measles.

I We are knoAvn as Originals 13-’27. [ 6 ] GRADUATION NUMBER Imagine it, there are exactly 5,500 pounds of living, growing, young pro- toplasm, and we are called the Seniors, Just 2% tons. Our average weight is 125 pounds. Our total height is 2,820 " and our average height is 63 " . Our total age is 780 years and our av- erage age is 17 years. As a group we have amassed 2,500 di- ploma points, and here is a grave mis- take, only 2,200 were needed. Think of it, three pupils could have stayed home while there diplomas v ere being earned for them. Our class has 18 letter men, with a to- tal of 58 letters. From our nine dollars a day during our school life, each Senior has earned exactly nine thousand fifteen dollars and fifteen cents. As a group we will receive a check amounting to $423,712.- 05 along with our diplomas on Friday. Our favorite flower. Spinach? Our favorite outdoor sports. Football and Field Hockey.

(Of all his studies he likes recess the best.) |3rnpl|ccg of PropI| t I lay snugly blanketed in my pup tent, gazing into the fast dying embers of the camp fire. My camp was on the more sheltered side of Mt. McKinley, in Alaska, the last and fast weakening post of the wilderness that was slowly, but surely, dying out under the ever advancing hand of science and civiliza- tion. It is 1947 and in the dreamy em- bers, I picture back the rapid strides of science from my High School days to the present. I wonder what part my classmates might have played in the ladder of mankind. A sharp bark started me from my reverie and I glanced up to see a large, handsome, friendly-looking collie with his head cocked on one side and a mat- ter-of-fact look in his eyes, as if to say, “Well, who are you?’ I immediately crawled out to talk to [ 7 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC this interesting and companionly-look- ing fellow who, after a few suspicious sniffs, permitted me to pat him. His collar tag glittered in the dim light of the fire. I picked it up and, with a whoop of joy that made the dog prick up his ears and look at me with puz- zled eyes, I read, “Scottie, property of Donald Whiston, Stoneham, Mass.’’ What memories that name brought flashing back. “Don shall have com- pany this evening, pup,” I remarked to the dog who ' watched, with much inter- est, the proceedings of putting on shoes and like, to set out to find the camp of my old classmate. As I arose to start the search the dog bounded off into the brush so I follow- ed and he led me straight as a die, stopping now and then to wait for me, about a quarter of a mile to a camp fire with a lone pup tent in front of it. With a whoop, I crashed into this little camp and in no time the intro- ductions were over and Don and I were chatting away over a crackling fire. Don had come up to Alaska to take my last bit of wilderness away from me. He was a great engineer and was to head the construction of a giant flying platform for the Universal Airplane Routes. This vast aerial station that Don was to guide the building of, was to be one of the major stations where transportation to all major cities of the world left day and night. We looked over blue prints that were all Greek to me and chatted along all lines to the wee small hours of the morning. Finally, I arose to go, prom- ising him to accompany him on his trip up the mountain the next day where he was to determine the most advantageous location for the station. Then I re- turned through the woods and turned in to sleep the sleep of the weary, look- ing forward to a pleasant to-morrow.

MacNeil, Jr. You have gathered here this after- noon to witness the closing chapter in the High School career of the Class of 12-’27 and in b’ehalf of that class it gives me pleasure to welcome you all at this time. A day such as this one would not be complete without a last tribute in ap- preciation to those who are and have been responsible for our training dur- ing the past four years. To have taught and guided us in preparation for this day and future days to come required patience and encouragement. These things were never found wanting in the faculty at Stoneham High. They were patient when we became impatient, and encouraging when we became discour- aged. The high standards they held be- fore us to live from were examples and shadows from their own unquestioned characters. To-day will go down in the history of Stoneham High School as a unique occasion, because this will have been the second Senior class to graduate from Stoneham High School within a week. One week ago to-day the Class of 13-’27 received their diplomas. Ow- ing to the adoption of a new high school system it became necessary to graduate the two upper classes the same 3 ' ear. As both classes had gone along inde- pendent of each other, it was found im- possible to join them as one for this final occasion. Thus separate gradua- tions were granted by the School Com- mittee. On graduation there is a triumphant and victorious feeling, but over-shadow- ing it there is a feeling of regret. A realization dawns upon us that we are leaving — not to return. Several weeks ago we gladened at the thought of this day, but as the path narrowed and our goal came into view, the truth of de- parture from that temple of learning burned within us. Classmates: This is our last gathering ;audu juj iCnm -snoiios sb from one another, but the friendships we have formed are the kind that are not easily broken. As time drifts on and the years separating us from our High School life grow more numerous may we remember each other as class- mates. We have taken for our motto, “Not merely to exist but to amount to something is life.” Let us ponder sometime in the future and remember that what we do or wdiat we may be- come is a reflection on our school. Let us chisel its honor and do only the things that will bring it credit. All of us may take counsel in the famous words of Kipling’s “If;” If you can keep your head when all about you Are loosing theirs and blaming on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you. But make allowance for their doubt- ing too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies. Or being hated don’t give waj to hating. And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise. If you can dream and not make dreams your master. If you can think and not make thoughts your aim. If you can meet with Triumph and Dis- aster And treat those two imposters just the same ; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken. And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools. If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch and toss. And lose, and start again at your begin- nings And never breathe a word about your loss; [ 11 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC If you can force your heart and nerve ! and sinew I To serve you long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will whicli snvs to them : : “Hold on!” I If you can talk with crowds and keep i your virtue, i Or walk with Kings — nor lose the ' common touch, ! If iicither foes nor loving friends can ' hurt you, I If all men count with you hut none ' too much ; | If you can fill the unforgiving minute I With sixty second’s worth of distance run. Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, I And — which is more — you’ll he a Man, my son! pitumite | Anne E. Buzzell j In reviewing the world’s progress for the past few years, one is impressed and : somewhat bewildered to note the many lines into which progress divides itself. To mention only a few will recall to our minds with what great speed we are at- : taining the things which were consid- i ered impossible a few years ago. Some called these “fool ideas,” but we are now enjoying them and could hardly do i without them. Who does not enjoy the i radio, the automobile, the telephone, ] and the rotogravures of the daily pa- j pers? Soon, in all probability, we will i be able to see the party with whom we j converse on the telephone. Through the aid of science, therefore, new ideas are being sought and old ideas improved and perfected. As familiar illustrations of personal achievement let us consider some lead- ing persons in the various fields of sci- ence, business, athletics, and aviation. One of the greatest surgeons during the World War, Alexis Carrel, spent his life studying and discovering new aids to save human beings; AndreAv Car- negie, a prominent philanthropist, made millions of dollars through honest busi- ness investments and gave much to help mankind in establishing libraries. One of the famous Marathon runners of to- day, Clarence DeMar, has run the equiv- alent of the distance around the Avorld, and runs each year about twenty-five hundred miles to keep himself in condi- tion ; Charles Lindbergh, our popular air hero, entered the New York to Paris flight with the sole purpose of achieve- ment, unspoiled by the sordid thought of financial gain. There are many oth- ers, too, Avho have likewise achieved their goals through determination and endurance. Achievements are the results of the combined efforts of many men and wo- men. To my mind the thought or idea is 011I3’ the starting point. If the thought is left dormant, it does not ma- ture. It must be brought to a conclu- sion in order to be called an achieve- ment. To have the ability to start with a sketchy idea, to pursue it through to completion, and to accomplish a useful result is the purpose for w’hich our studies have been arranged. They pro- vide the means for clear thinking and broad conception. These two assets combined Avith good home eiiAuronment build a solid foundation for happy use- ful lives. It will not be given to all of us to ac- hieve the most useful accomplishments, but each of us can, AAuth this back- ground, become useful in whatever niche AA ' e choose for ourselves. Some Avill be satisfied in the future, as in the past, Avith trivial honors. The presi- dency of the class Avould appeal to a fcAv; the captaincy of the athletic team Avould appeal to others; the honor of Ijeing acclaimed the most popular pupil in school AAmuld appeal to a still larger percentage of the student body. These aspirations are commendable only when pursued Avith friendly riA’alry and in the spirit of the “best one wins.” Self- promotion at the expense of others is a Aveed that leaves neither room for ideals nor the healthy groAvth of a loA’able per- sonality. Whatever task we undertake, Ave must resolve to do it to the best of our abilities. Taking only credit that belongs to us, giving credit AA ' here cred- it is due, striving to correct our own faults, overlooking other’s faults are achievements Ave all can obtain. It is noAv strictly up to ourselves whether we progress or whether we discount our op- portunities. The outstanding point is that in phys- ical as Avell as mental achievements, one must first of all acquire the right at- titude, sense the true values, do all the work to prepare oneself, and finally, depend upon one’s OAvn efforts and ac- GRADUATION NUMBER cept victory or defeat, as may be, with the satisfying consciousness that he has given his best efforts. These ideals applied in scientific pur- suits professional callings, or in the or- dinary routine employments will carry us on to the ultimate personal achieve- ment — to make the world a better place 111 which to live, “Let us, then, be up and doing. With heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing. Learn to labor and to wait.” Raymond J. Dodge College sports were started as volun- tary games by those who enjoyed them. Attracting more and more attention first among the students and later among the sport lovers of the world, they became more and more expensive. ' They outgrew the capacity of the stu- j dents to manage them. They became ' great spectacles, attracted vast audien- ■ ces, returned large gate receipts, and re- | quired elaborate coaching systems. Some few years after it began, foot- ball was abolished, because of its bru- tality, from many of the colleges of | this country. Popular demand was, | however, so pressing that the rules were modified, and elements were introduced to produce thrills and to regain for I football its immense popularity. It is | these thrills, brought about mainly by the forward pass, that have retained this popularity until at present with the occasional exception of basketball, ! football is the only paying college si3ort. Almost simultaneously with the be- ginning of intercollegiate rivalry arose a blast of pedagogic disapproval. This feeling has centered itself on football as the game most needing reform. The faculty’s disapprobation is not against the game itself but against the evils arising from and supposedly connected with the game. The evils with which athletics are charged are many and varied. The fundamental ones are over-organization, super-coaching systems, luxurious equip- ment, and chief of them all, the fact that comparativelj ' ’ few men receive the benefits fo the exercise. From these other evils arise: Organized scouting, hiring of players, distracting of atten- tion of team and students alike, stress and strain on the players, preposterous financial outlay, and the adulation of men simply for physical prowess. The blame for most of these faults may easily be traced to the interest of the alumni in their Alma Mater and not in any way to the students. When a man graduates, he takes it upon himself to personally look out for the welfare of the college. He feels that, in order to succeed, a college must have success- ful teams, and he will spare no time, money, nor effort to make them suc- cessful. For this reason some of the college alumni have considered inter-collegiate sports as a big business or commercial enterprise. To them, athletic teams are an excellent means by which to gain “new business ” and to this end they have overlooked these evils as merely part of the price of something desir- able. They maintain, in their own de- fense, that the salary grievance is uni- versal, and, moreover, that a coach, who brings in more “new business” than the gentleman who makes a first-class translation of Pindar, should, of right, receive more remuneration. And Pin- dar (whom most of you have probably never heard of) was an ancient Greek poet who gained much of his fame by his skill in celebrating the athletic tri- umphs of his contemporaries. It is on- ly fair to say that the professor, after years of preparation, receives a salary that is a mere pittance compared with that of a successful coach, who, until the last few years, required no special training. Gradually, however, the so- called thug coach is disappearing and it is now imperative for the mentor to take one of the many courses in coach- ing. Besides the several summer schools the University of Michigan has added a course in coaching to its curriculum. If the alu mni have made inter-colleg- iate teams a business proposition, the players certainly have not. There are few ill any sport who have a finer ama- teur spirit than the average college ath- lete. There are, of course, exceptions, but I am referring to the majority. And organized scouting, or hiring of players does not fit in any too well with the true spirit of the game. Most of the college presidents do not want sports abolished, but they do want to remedy the chief fault of present day sports, the fact that comparatively few are benefited by the exercise. The [ 13 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC alumni, in their demands have com- pletely forgotten that “the object of the faculty’s sanction of athletics is the greatest physical development of all. Devoting ones time and attention whol- ly to inter-collegiate teams is, however, hardly less justifiable than devoting at- tention exclusively to scholarship,” This has been the government’s aim in both Annapolis and West Point. They have introduced sport for sport’s sake for the whole student body with wonderful results. Let us picture Annapolis on a fall afternoon, after the classes and drills of the day are over. On Farragut Field the football teams are practising; squads A and B, the plebe team, and the teams of the eight companies that make up the regiment. On another field two hundred more midshipmen are en- grossed in the mysteries of soccer. On the Severn are the crews ; varsity, plebe, C ' lass, and company eights. Pound and round the track goes the cross country team, and on the courts the tennis play- ers are limbering up. In the gym the basketball squad is having early prac- tice and the pool is alive with human dolphins. The rifle and lacrosse teams come in to store away their paraphenal- ia, the hand’oall court is busAq and the wrestling and boxing rooms are crowd- ed wfith contestants. This is not an exceptional day; it is a regular occur- rence. Where else, except possibly at West Point do we find such a high av- erage in sport for sport’s sake and in the “greatest phj ' sical development of all?” To keep athletics and inter-collegiate rivalry in the university they must be reformed. The best colleges have recognized this in several ways. The Western ' Conference, that league of great universities, has shortened their schedules; nearly every day new agree- ments are being made to stop organized scouting; almost every college has placed scholastic requireiiients on its athletics. There are still certain col- leges which are more than shj ' in this respect, but they are getting to be known, and it is only a question of time before they change or find themselves dropped from most of the better sched- ules. The limiting of the season to four or five games would have a far- reaching effect. It would lessen the furor of excitement over the game ; it Avould decrease the attendance mak- ing possible a smaller stadium; it would lessen the coach’s importance and j of necessitj ' ' , his salary. If men were allowed to play only two years there would not be such a great incentive for hiring players, and there would be more time for study. The baseball fans want ' a reform of their own ; that the game be played between the teams and not betAveen the coaches. A radical reform, proposed recently by President Hopkins of Dartmouth, contained three main features; limiting of playing to Juniors and Sophomores; Senior coaches; two games played sim- ultaneously, one on each college field. The purpose of these was first, to give Seniors more time for study, and at the same time to give more players a chance; secondly, to reduce the expense of coaching systems ; thirdly, to have no “big” game, no Amrsity, and as a re- suit, less excitement. ! The “Dartmouth” replied in an edi- 1 torial that there was some doubt if the plan would be realized in its entirety, l)ut that some change is sure and that President Hopkins deserves praise for taking the lead. The consensus of opinion of the Big Three AA ' as that great benefit would be deriA’ed from such a plan, but that it AA ' as too radical to gain immediate suc- cess. By the first proposition a larger num- ber would be able to play. The second article received general criticism due to the fact that the student coaches Avere thought to be mediocre. The third Avould stop Saturday emigration of the student body, and AA’ould lessen the im- portance of the winning side. It was hoped that this proposal would arouse interest in the subject and Avould call forth an expression of opinion. Some such reform AAmuld end football as a S5unl)ol to the alumni; it Avould substi- I tute the game as a game for relaxation, in short, the English situation. At any [ rate, the American attitude must be made less serious and more sportive. I In a word, the extension of inter-col- legiate athletics brings out se ’eral i questions hitherto conceded to be self 1 evident. Does a college environmient I stimulate youth to labor ? Or do ath- letics urge them on through college? Do they fulfill scholastic requirements for the sake of football, or do they play football to better fulfill these require- ments? Is the game extensive because it educates or because it entertains? Is the stadium the center of university [ 14 ] GRADUATION NUMBER life or the adjuncts Which the cart, which the horse? dlass istorg Esther Trainor On a sunshiny day in the early fall of 1923 there stood on the steps of the Stoneham High School, a group of about seventy shy and timid freshmen, all starched and shining. They were wait ing to be admitted for the first time to those lofty and magnificent portals for their next four years together as a class. When the doors were thrown open, this quiet group of boys and girls tiptoed into the corridors. The busi- ness division was assigned to Miss Gar- land in Room 7. Miss Garland, it is remembered, was very strict about whispering; no one could misbehave with her. The classical and technical divisions had Room 4 for their home W ' ith Miss Bessey as their home room teacher. There was much confusion evi- dent among these freshmen for some time and they were subject to a great deal of ridicule and sport from the no- ble and stately seniors. At the first meeting of the class, the following members were given the hon- or of managing the class affairs for one year: Plorace Ford, President; James McPartland, Vice President; Clifford Phoenix, Secretary; and Marj Logan, Treasurer. On October 9 the class had its first social and a large attendance was pres- ent, considering that it was held by a freshman class. At this social we be- come acquainted with the most promi- nent seniors in school. Of course the financial condition of the class was not very sound as yet, but we hoped to soon have an enormous tre asury. A number of our members w ' ent out for places on the various athletic teams. Clifford, we wonder if you remember that time in English when we were ask- ed if the Lady of the Lake was an ap- propriate name for that book, and you promptly replied, “No, iPs too dry.” And how well John Kelly always re- membered what the lesson was, particu- larly when the assignment was the “Diet of Worms.” It is really inconceivable that our class should have been so bright. We enjoyed our new school life im- mensely but the summer vacation was welcomed and we left school on the last day thinking how much better we would ! do the next year. When school opened in September, the members of 12-’27 entered with more assurance than before. They were, at least, no longer in the humble classi- fication of freshmen. The home rooms remained the same because, with the ad- dition of the new Junior High School building, conditions were somewhat al- tered. The studies were more difficult this 3 ear and the sophomores were rare- ly seen going home without an armful of books. At the first business meeting of the year, Horace Ford was re-elected Presi- dent, Steve Haseltine was chosen Vice President, George Young was our Secre- tary and Janet Learned, Treasurer. The funds of the class were still low as only one social had been held. During the Sophomore year our class was well represented on the athletic teams. Alice Riley and Gladys Camer- on played a good game on the field hockey team with scarcely a goal going by Al, w ' ho was in the net. Bud McCall, Hoiace Chase and Fordie were given prominent places on the baseball squad, doing good work all the season. This class was very witty and proved a great source of irritation to Mr. Gowan, our youthful typewriting teach- er. On one occasion he asked for the two kinds of banks and was informed that there were National and Sand Banks. A club was being formed in one of the class rooms and on being told that it must be conducted with parlia- n .entary rules. Miss Smith made the query, “Don’t you mean the Democratic Convention?” V e were very proud to be represented in the Edison Home Lighting Contest l)y Miss Buzzell who won the first local prize and the second prize in Greater Boston. School closed in June with many re- grets but in September the members of 12-’27 would be upper classmen, never to be looked down upon again. Oh ! what an important atmosphere was evident on that lovely autumn day in 1925 when we entered school again, this time as Juniors. Some of our mem- bers were seated in Miss Ryan’s room. Others were in Miss Fowler’s room, where the atmosphere was very serious i but businesslike and where an “A” is i seldom given out unless it is a deserv- ing one. Still others of our group were [ 15 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC in Miss Moore’s room. (Miss Moore is •very much admired for her wonderfully cheerful disposition.) Our class was reorganized and a very competent set of officers elected, name- ly: James McPartland, President; Harold Egan, Vice President ; Janet Learned, Secretarj and Steve Haseltine, Treasurer. On October 29, the class conducted its first social of the year in the form of a Halloween dance held in the gj ' innasium which was decorated for the occasion. A large iiumber were present. Sport s played a large part in our school life now. In football Eotundi, McCall, Egan, and Ford made the squad. In basketball, Ford, Metchear, YanDer- zee and Adzigian won their letters. A1 Eiley, Gladys Cameron and Anne Buz- zell were again on the field hockey team. On January 15, IMr. Dalglish, our new music instructor, i resented the Chinese Operetta, “Little Almond Eyes ’ and many of those taking part were chosen from our class. It was a great success. The same witticisms were in evidence this year too and in a classroom on cur- rent events was hear, “A man in a runa- way automobile used his head when he jumped out.” Eobert Forrest was awak- ened from his reverie one day by the teacher ' s voice. “I aint doin’ nothin’,” he said. The teacher calmly remarked, “That’s just the trouble.” It was with regret that we lost in the midst of our Junior year, Z Iiss Pomeroy, our typewriting and stenography teach- er, but in her successor, IMiss Poland, we had an able and well-liked teacher. Under her guidance more tj’pewriting and stenography awards have l)een won than ever before in the Stoneham High School. We were very sorry to learn at the end of our Junior j-ear that Ave were not to have ] Iiss Eyan, our teacher of business-training, Avith us for the re- mainder of our high school career. Miss Eyan was admired 1 )a " all the stu- dents and she has been greatly missed. When Ave re-entered the broad corri- dors of the Stoneham High School for the last time as noble and dignified seniors, avo felt extremely the loss of our belov ed principal, Mr. Emerson. We waited anxiously to see our new principal, Mr. Watson, and a great sur- prise was received when, instead of see- ing a large stern man, as Ave had antici- pated, we beheld a short person with a very pleasant smile. 12-’27 was Avidely distributed, some of our members being seated in room 12 with Miss Poland. Part of the tech- nical and classical divisions AA’ere seated in Mr. Alden’s room. Never shall Ave forget hoAv Mr. Alden, after he had heard a complete recitation, Avould al- Avays say, “Noav once again, please.” The rest of our class Avas on the top fioor in Mr. Skerrye’s room. The need of an eleA ' ator AA as often felt by these students. Mr. Skerrye is to be remem- l)ered for his keen sense of humor and his fine Avitticisms. A word or two must be mentioned here about Mr. Neilson, office practise and bookkeeping teacher. We never could quite understand where Mr. Neilson got so many “cases and conditions.” ' In athletics the class Avas superb. ' When a Boston All-Scholastic Junior 1 Field Hockey Team was picked, Alice Eiley Avas chosen goalie and Avas award- ed the Boston Field Hockey Shield. Our class Avas very prominent throughout the year, supplying practically all of the best players on the various teams. The Senior Prom was held in the fall of a combination Junior Prom (and i Senior Hop at the Armory, Avhich was decorated Avith our colors, blue and sil- ver. In NoA ' ember came the second oper- etta under the direction of Mr. Dal- glish. The cast Avas largely made up of seniors. It Avas a very humorous play and Avas aa ' gII carried off by these able students. It has probably been noted that the Authentic has outdone itself this year, for 12-’27 has conducted the paper Avhich lias been the best yet. At a class meeting in April, George IMacNeil AA as elected President, filling that vacancy, Achile Eichmond Metchear ! became our Vice President. The senior play, “The ArriAml of Kit- j ty,” Avas a great financial as well as so- I cial success for the class. A very tal- j ented cast was chosen and everyone ' performed creditably. [ On May 18, the tAvo senior classes had j a joint banquet at the Hotel Kenmore, Boston. It A ms a very happy affair and was probably the last get-together Ave shall have. Then comes graduation, the most won- derful and yet most solemn of occa- sions. Yfhen we leaA ' e jmu today, we must go forward with a new sense of responsibility, Avith a new career be- [ 10 ] GRADUATION NUMBER fore us. Wc wish success and happiness to our former teachers although you will prob- ably never have a class as clever and as studious as ours has been. We shall always think of S. H. S. with joy in the renieV.ibrance of the happy times we had together. 12- 27 has consumed the same amount of scholastic matter in four years as 13-’‘27 did in five years. There are 42 prospective Presidents, Lindberghs, and street-cleaners in our midst and also 34 prospective wives, old maids, and school madams in the class roster. The average age of the class is 17.32 years. If the total age of the class v ere heaped uj on one member that per- son would be just 261 years older than Methuselah. The person would have started his life at the destruction of Carthage. The average height of the class is 5 ' 6.33 " . Supposing that each member of our group were placed one on top of the other they would tower 200 ' above the Pilgrim monument at Prov- incetown and would be one-third the height of Eiffel Tower, Paris, France. The class would also tower six times higher than our own dear temple of wisdom, Stoneham High. The average weight of the class is 126.33802 pounds. In comparison with Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis the en- tire class weighs exactly twice as much of 5,000 pounds more than that plane. Class Athletes Charles Ford, Horace Chase and Aggie Eiley.

Blenkliorn, Jr. In the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and forty-seven, I stepped forth to the little town of Stoneham in search of information, and remunera- tion. The month was July, the day, Wednesday, the time 2.30 and the tem- perature quite torrid. I was returning to Stoneham after some years of study and recreation in Paris, mostly recrea- tion. The first to greet me the third day of my arrival was Arthur Hovey, who ran his big butter and egg store in Central Square. He took me for a swim down to Duck Pond which was now the favor- ite summer spot for the Stonehamites. The water was quite cool, a great re- lief. The large beach, running paral- lel to the Fellsway, was the scene of amassed and tanned-up swimmers. But as I glanced around for sight of friends the only pebble on the beach whom I recognized was George Apalakis with an air-tight bathing suit on his bosom and a sign across the top reading “Life Guard.” He was saving lives by the dozens passing out mints called “Life Savers.” The next person I ran across was Raymond Schwartz, .owner of the Schwartz Company plant down on : Montvale Avenue, manufacturers of aeroplanes and the like. Ray, with his business-like appearance (smoking a cigar and thumbs outstretching the sleeves of his vest) said he needed a good man like me to advertise his plane. Certainly I could not refuse this oppor- tunity though as an aviator I am a bet- ter butcher. However, I could not af- I ford to let the offer fly by, so I accept- € ' d. My x lane, v hich was then shown me, was a three-winged contraption with six propellers (five just in case of emergency,) a cabin, and a large sign . outside marked “Schwartz.” Surely few ! jobs could be easier, merely flying around advertising an aeroplane. ; The day of departure came and my plane was tuned up to perfection. So I tightened up my belt, as I climbed into the cock-pit and imagined mj self diving off the pier of inconsequentiali- ty into the shark-infested waters of the future. With a whiz of the propellor I was soaring up above the skyscrapers of Stoneham Square and leaving the Montvale flying field behind, j The first ten hours of my journey 1 were the hardest but after that the faith- ful “Schwartz’” roared on with the bristling perpetuality of a genius. As I was passing over what I surmised was Michigan due to the number of automobile plants below, a fellow air- man passed by, Paul Gilman, the poet. As a result of the congested air traf- fic he nearly collided with my plane, being terrifically occupied in soliloquiz- ing on a new poem. His stenographer, Doris Jeffrey, was with him, taking things down as they came to that enor- mous mind of the master poet. Imag- ine it! So many vehicles in the air that it was highly desirable to put out one’s left hand when going around a corner. As the day was growing late, I decid- ed to land somewhere to spend the night. At the place of my landing, which by mistake was a cornfield, and ran across the corn ruining ear by ear, a little old farmer with a goatee on his chin came running out as though to kill. To my astonish- ment he said nothing but greeted me cordially for it was none other than Kenneth Gilson. For the rest of the [ 18 ] GRADUATION NUMBER evening I was devoid of any speaking privileges, by the continuous speech of the farmer. Kenneth evidently knew plenty of business, however, and he filled my mind with good news of great interest. The small town we were in was called Onelung, in the state of Min- nesota. He told me that Sylvia Lin- Ecott’s latest novel, “The Death of King Jazz,” was just out; that Horace Ford (the only one in the class who didn’t begin his career selling newspapers) had hopes of making money on his pat- ented article called the “honest ouija board,” Fordy stated that it never lied. Mr. Gilson likewise informed me that Raymond Dodge ran his dance hall in Onelung and Eugene Hale was the very successful proprietor of a matrimonial bureau; Phyllis Whitney, several miles away, ran a doughnut shoppe and Lydia Bagdikian also open ed her doors to peo- ple who were in pursuit of hats, stock- ings, and other feminine apparel. The following day the sun came out with pelting heat, and I was anxious to fiy again so I might keep cool. It had been pretty sound sleeping in the Gil- son residence the previous night, except for the fact that the Gilson children howled continuously for ice cream, until Mrs. Gilson, who used to be known as Alice Riley, secured all day suckers for them. This example proved that all day suckers are just as faith- ful at night as in the daytime. The kids must have been pleased with them for they still had them in the morning. When we arose A1 had not j’et milked the cow, so her husband took me down ; town to eat. We went to a Cafeteria ! run by Anne Buzzell and her friend, Gladys Cameron. The home-made pies and steaks which w’e ate were not so i tough, in fact quite tender. As we left the restaurant a large, heavy stove-pipe rolled out of a passing truck and landed on Ken’s toe. A tall, rugged fellow, who looked to me like a plumber, jumped out of the truck. In- | deed he was a plumber and his name j was Roger Lamson. Roger laughed at : the farmer, and gave us a lift back to | the farm of Gilson. Saying good-bye ; to the town of Onelung, I flew on once : more with the effort of a Lindbergh, j While continuing my flight westerly, 1 j decided it would be a great achieve- ! ment to demonstrate the machine in California. Thence I grit my teeth, j opened up two motors and swerved j southwesterly with the state of Cali- j fornia as my destination. Eight hours of solitary flight brought me somewhere in the vicinity of my destination and I knew the Pacific coast was not far off. Below me I noticed a flying field. Heading downward with the assistance of gravity my intentions were to land in the center of the field, but the large crowd, which apparently was waiting for me, left me no room. They, there- fore, caused a forced landing in a near- by apple orchard instead of in the fly- ing field. As I descended toward Moth- er Earth my rudder struck the branch of an apple tree. Unfortunately Rich- ard Anderson, the big apple and pear man, was l elow stud3’ing his crop. Al- though neither of us was injured, the plane was completely wrecked. This ended the advertising of the Schwartz machine. Mr. Anderson in- formed me that I was in Beverly Hills, California. He had resided there ten 3 ' ears, and his wife, Doris (formerly Newhall,) ran a beauty shop there, called the “Make ’em O i0r.” I re- mained with him for a few hours until I received a telegram from the boss di- recting mj’- future activities. President Schwartz wired that the plane didn’t mean anything but gave me some busi- ness to transact in Los Angeles and then in New York. Andy took me for a ride in his “Rub- a-tub” over to Jo«l Clark’s house out on the desert, where he and his wife, Olive Smith, lived happily. How Joel made his monej’ wms unknown, but when we arrived there he showed us a letter from Olive (who was a’way at the time) ex- plaining the situation. It read, “Dear- est Joel: Your circus was wrecked in a tornado last night. People and animals in near panic. Little Joel is learning to swim under water. He went under this A. M. and didn’t come up for sup- per to-night. Wish jmu were with him. Tliere were many freaks here today. Expect to see you soon. Love, Olive.” As I walked towards the town of Bev- erlj " Hills, whom was I to see but Harold Egan, the constable, strolling along the ab ss by the highway, with Harold Lewis under his arm. Harold, who was a noted explorer, had lost his way trying to find the Golden Gate. It was now exactly two-thirty and I had an appointment in Hollj ' wood at three. Since there were no taxis in sight my old friend Pat carried me down in the sidecar of his notorious [ 19 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC motorcycle. Pat left me in the center of the town where I saw a new bronze statue erected to Charlie Whitcher, who recently invented a new iceless ice box, a benefit to the citizens of Hollywood. Upon crossing the street I looked up at a bill-board which portrayed in large letters, “See Ester Trainor in the Silent Lover.’’ Ester was a noted actress and had gained much fame. For her part- ner she had picked “Phearless Phil Phloop,” who was none other than Pick Dillon, under an assumed movie name. It was said that Helen Baert w ' as now a dancer for Metro-Goldwyn. Eva Yeaton was a scenario writer, Con- stantine Apalakis was the United Ar- tists best bad man. Alva Clark played the comedian in Mack Sennet roles. Two more of the Real Class of 1927 had been awarded remarkable positions in the movie game. At the Hal Roach studios, Ed Roach was the chief make- up man and Ivy Hudson was the head make-up woman. On the stage Mary Logan had become B. F. Keith’s head attraction. George MacNeil (sweet little Georgie) was now famous in playing the villian in stern Shakesperian plays. George still had that wonderful expression which he de- livered at the Senior Play in High School. Priscilla Taylor of the mellow voice belonged to an opera company which was touring Europe. Still another of our favorite enter- tainers had her name spoken by every footlight devotee of the United States. Alice Kenny for the past two years had been doing a new dance called the “Shearless Shivers,” which like the now dead “Charleston” was rattled off by all the flappers and flapperettes in this great universe. Bright lights of Broad- way, Paris, Halifax, Chicago and Stone- ham all bore the name of Alice who was now to musical comedies what baked beans are to Boston. All this I learned from that remark- able personage of Alton Brundage, who, by the way, had succeeded such men as Will Hayes, etc. Nap was head of Hol- lywood and in charge of all movie pro- ductions. Adelbert gave me a ride in his Ford to Los Angeles and bought me a ticket to New York but in return I was to attempt a reconciliation between him and his wife, Mary Finnegan Brun- dage. She had left him with the decla- ration that Nap spent all his time and money on chewing gum and pop-corn. Oh well, the worst was yet to come so I retired to the sleeper on the train. Soon pleasant dreams strangled thru my cerebrum, yet for no good reason at all I awoke the next afternoon at ten minutes past twelve. The porter in- formed all passengers that the train w ' as now in Louisville, Kentucky, where we might have lunch and get an extra I breath or two. I strolled around and suddenly was taken by surprise with desperate whack somewhere in the vi- cinity of the right shoulder. When I turned around to si ' ee my aggressor ’twas Richmond Metchear. I was forced to shake hands -with the imp, but I also repaid him the “sock” I received. This brought to mind the way the muscles used to get sore in Stoneham High School. Dick was station agent and ran ; around the premises like lightning, kill- I ing flies and drinking coca cola. I in- ! quired about his wife, Ruth Moody, who ! I found assisted him in his work. She sold pretzels and licked postage stamps l)ehind the counter for him. The Metchears informed me that George Young and Clifford Phoenix were now famous jockeys at the track in Louis- ville. Russell Hodgman, it was said, had worked his way up from stable-boy to the real rank of barney stableman and was the owner of several nice trot- ters. As soon as the locomotive was ready, I was. When I boarded the train, a i handsome young man came over and sat down beside me. It was John Kel- ly, who was just returning from the I aces with his favorite mare, Lena. We became involved in a lengthy discussion over our former class-mates. He show- ed me a post-card portraying the build of Artemus Rotondi, the world’s wrest- ling champion. Also one of John Van Derzee, the tallest man in the world. Still another of Lillian Young, the world’s greatest magician. I learned from Kelly that Mary Maguire was an artist’s model in St. Louis, and that Edith Clark was the most popular girl of the smart set in New York. Mr. Kel- ly likewise provided, for my interest, other news. Weston Brannen was now director of the Boston Symphony Or- chestra and other musical organizations. He had also heard that Edward Ad- zigian was a toreador in Spain and still loved to throw the bull. In that same country Rita Pettengill did the Spanish flip-flop for King Alfonso. Continuing his weird tale. Jocko sang out that Dor- othy Junkins and Dorothy Tobey were [ 20 ] GRADUATION NUMBER trained nurses and ran a private hos- pital in Chicago. “Scratcher” then showed me a phamplet advertising a dance. There stood Russell Ringland, fiddle in hand, conducting his orches- tra. At the piano sat Veivin Alley (I never knew she could play) and just behind her was Ruth Russell with a saxophone. Over in the corner of this picture was Alice Crosby holding two drumsticks. There were two more peo- ple in the picture whom I didn’t seem to recognize. One had a cornet, the other a big tuba. The former was play- ed by Ruth Murray and the latter by Marion Govatsos, so John stated. Indeed, all this proved interesting. Johnny Kelly provided great informa- tion, but he had been just like snow — he drifted. As evidence, he produced a book called ‘ ' Seeing the " W orld Through a Port-Hole.” When our train reached New York, I bad John good-bye. My next stop was the Hotel Vanderbilt where I registered and secured a suite of rooms. Several hours were spent on Wall Street for the Schwartz Motors Co. I returned to the hotel just in time to find Horace Chase scribbling in the autograph album. So we shared the suite together. Horace was noAv coach of the Dippy Universi- ty’s track team. Sunday morning came. Certainly I must attend church. We had breakfast in bed before Horace finally agreed to go. Church began at 10.30. The hour now being 10.05, we could afford to w’aste little time. Walking down the hotel steps, Hoddie yelled, “Hey, Taxi,” and a big green cab drew up to about two thousandths of an inch from the curb. Wc stepped into the cab and di- rected the driver to our destination. As we were riding down Thoity-thoid street Hoddie recognized something peculiar about the driver. He ' wmuld stop for nothing, passing everything on the road, zig-zagging down, up, in, out, un- til finally this death-lurking ride ceased as we reached the giant edifice. We w ' ere about to saj’’ a few words to the chauffeur wdien casting a glance towards the sidew’alk we heard the expression, “Hi, fellers.” It was one, Earl Potter, with a heavy mustache and a large stomach added to his appearance. Odd what a change twenty years can make in people. Earl had now a large family to support. This he did very nobly. To him belonged every taxi in New York but one. Let me explain that that one was in the possession of Edgar Patch. Patchie at this time was a striv- ing inventor. His latest model was the ZR Cab 4, a detachable machine which would travel on land, air, sea, or what not, but so far generally needed as- sistance. This machine, however, was just used as an advertisement and did not compete with the Potter business. We had three minutes to secure a seat in church. Therefore, bidding good-bye to the taxi man, we ascended the stairs to the church. As we passed the thresh- hold, Horace and myself were ushered in by Ehvyn Leavitt. Elwyn was head deacon, choirister, janitor and several other officials of the church. How sur- prised we were when a long-faced, stout, well-dressed, curly, auburn haired min- ister took the pulpit. In a moment it Avas discovered that the gentleman was I Robert Forrest, who used to be a bash- ' ful boy back in Stoneham High School. Mr. Leavitt quotes that Bobby turned to the ministry after a poor trial at being a detective. The services were wonder- I ful, the prayers beautiful, and Parson Forrest taught his lesson well. Flora Osborn was the soloist and the flood of music lifted to the roof by her melo- dious voice was magnificent. All in all we gained a great deal by going to church and we returned to the hotel just in time to receive the last call for dinner. The next day old Sol came out with a bright offering. The Giants were play- ing the Cincinnati Reds in the after- noon so Mr. Chase suggested seeing the game. I consented. As the first inning began William Mc- Call, who was knoAvn as “Mugsy” Mc- Call took the slab for the Giants. Mug- sy walked the first three men and then struck out the next three. When the ' Reds took the field, William Mahoney, ! now called “Whiffer’ ’Mahoney, pitched I air-tight ball for his team. For the first nine innings McCall gave bases on balls three times each inning and then fanned the following three successively. I Mahoney had allowed no hits for eight : innings, th,e score being nothing to nothing. At this point McCall hit a I home run over the fence and lost the I ball. This being the last l)all, Umpire Lawrence Montague was forced to call I the game. j That evening there was to be a parade of the nation’s most beautiful girls in the heart of the city. Joseph McGarry, ; the street commissioner, made sure that [ 21 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC hescrubbed Broadway before Mayor William Vorbeau skipped along the bright lights. Mayor Bill was recently nicknamed “Volcano Vorbeau” for he ruled New York very “eruptiously.” A newspaper was purchased to learn more details. The paper Ave read was the “Gotham Gossip,” edited by Mildred GrecnlaAv. On the front page was an article about horse-back riding describ- I ed to perfection by Eed herself. The “Gossip” stated that the parade was to start at 8.00 P. M., and Miss America was to be included. ' Heading the parade at eight was Miss America, Janet Learned. Although on- ‘ ly forty-seven years old, she won the prize with ease. Her features were di- vine, and she was just as cute as she was forty years ago in Stoneham, Mass., ' except for the fact that she had groAvn a few pounds. “Jakey” rode right by us though. Perhaps she didn’t recog- nize us. We returned to the hotel with the gleeful satisfaction that at last someone had placed Stoneham on the map. The following day Horace and I de- parted, he heading for Dippj University and I for Boston and home. I boarded the good ship “Leakansink” which was commanded by Stephen Haseltine. The ship’s cook was Mrs. Haseltine, needless to say formerly Mildred Cosgrove. The “Leakansink” ran betv een Noav York and Boston — occasionally. Captain Haseltine’s first mate was Law ' rence Johnston, Avho steered the ship in many ways. Just outside Vineyard Haven I noticed Alice Rhodes, famous biologist, fishing for clams. She was still fishing five hours later when I leaned over the upper deck. The hook, line and sinker she used proved very faithful. To my , surprise she caught something. Una- i ware of her good fortune, the passen- | gers were astonished to see appearing i above the Avater one of these small seA’en-hundred pound mud turtles. They haA e a habit of eating arms, legs, or anything else and are quite danger- ous. But to the rescue came First Mate Johnston. He cut off Alice’s line, and i the turtle disappeared. Mr. Johnston I deserA’es much praise as it surely was a close shave for tbe noted biologist. The boat at last reached Boston. Professor Schwartz was there awaiting my arrival. I told him my story: whom I had met, those of whom I had heard and the places I had Ausited. Surely the A ' alue of this could not be over es- timated. To discover the Avhereabouts of my fprmer classmates fullfilled the greatest desire of my heart. of tl]e 3ropitet Horace Morse Chase One fine day in the spring, 1947, as I paused in the well knoAvn “Cafietra” Hotel in London, England, I perceived a stately gentleman. Upon his head he AAore a plug hat which was tipped gently over one eye. Leaning against one of the great pillars of the main lobby he scanned the daily news thru a monocle Avhich Avas expertly balanced on his nose. As he stood there old memories came to me. I thought of our senior class play back in ’27 and remembered what a great success it was and Avhat a great Englishman Jim Blenkhorn had made in his plug hat, spats and monocle. Hoav like these two Avere. They must be the same. I jump- ed and pounded him on the back. The monocle dropped to the floor AAuth a silvery tinkle and broke into a thousand pieces. Stooping OA ' er Avithout a word he picked up the pieces of broken glass. As he arose, AA’ith a painful look of agony on his visage I thought of that old “gag” of Jim’s, “Where ya been?” The painful look disappeared and a smile dawned on his noble face. “Daown Miami.” “Hoav are things doAvn there?” I said. “Glad to be back?” “Yaou bet.” “Where ya goin?” “Up Maine.” “Live up there?” “Yeah.” I Avill let you imagine Avhat folloAved in the next five minutes, but finally Jim lemarked, “Come up to my apartment and Ave’ll swap stories. As I follovred him up the long flight of stairs I thought of the old S. H. S. and our good times there. “Whoopee” what loud ties and socks AA’e used to flash! Jim still had an eye for color judging by the necktie he Avas now Avearing. After hearing my story, Jim asked, “Hoaa ' is good old S. H. S.?” “Just the same as eA’er,” I ansAvered, “but let me hear your story.” James agreed and here is the story as I remember it. “The year after I graduated from Stoneham High School, I entered Bos- ton University. After a long and hard siege at this noted institution of learn- ing I graduated with high honors. For tAvo years I was a salesman but business [ 22 ] GRADUATION NUMBER ■was not good in my lines so I gave it i up. I tried many other vocations but ; I was a flat failure. I was about to ; give up when one day I saw the girl of | my dreams, the most beautiful girl in all the world. Upon first sight I fell in j love with her. She tripped like a fairy , down the avenue, and I, struck dumb by her charms, followed her, not daring to ' speak. I found her home and took the address. By becoming acquainted with the landlady of her apartment I man- ' aged to get an introduction to the fair lady. After that it didn’t take long to become fast friends and we saw much ! of each other. She aroused my ambi- ' tions and soon after I tried out in ama- 1 teur vaudeville. The act I put on made a big hit and after playing it for two months I received an offer to play the Englishman in “Wopple-choke’s Mil- lions.” By advancing fast and furious- ly my name " was soon written on the lights of Broadway and I became a very wealthy man. My fiance and I were soon married. But alas ! A fool and his money are soon paretd. The day after ; nij’ wedding, the girl of my dreams dis- appeared and also the whole of my for- i tune which I had entrusted to her. This thing broke my heart, also my pocketbook.

[ 27 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC GRADUATION (Dedicated to Class of 12-’27) Edward H. Adzigian The day is swiftly drawing nigh On which we leave dear Stoneham High. The sands of time are flowing slow But oh! how fast they seem to go. ’Twas only a day, not more than two We entered that door, both I and you, And now we’re leaving that very door After our stay of years was four. We’re leaving now, young men and wo- men. The school we entered when but chil- dren. With all our work and lessons done. The goal we sought for reached and won. The time we spent under the care And guidance of the teachers there Will always go down in memory As the best in all our history. The Class of ’27 will soon disband And will be scattered through the land, In many a college, school, and place To further prepare for life’s hard race. So this is goodbye to one and all. To all our friends. We hear the call Of the busy vrorld with all its strife. To upward climb the ladder of life. A GLIMPSE OF 1975 Ernest Blanchard ’29 “Ah! Here it is!” I had just received the latest novel by parcel radio Idelivei-y. The book was in poor condition as there had been heavy static that afternoon. That was one difficulty that had not yet been overcome. It was possible to eliminate static on broadcast receiving sets, but not on parcel radio sets. The parcel radio set uses a newly discovered prin- ciple by which anything can be made into radio energy. At the receiving end the parcel is re-constructed. These par- cel-carrier waves cannot be tapped like all waves could be in 1930. I set the dial on my Magnock, and on my dog Rover’s Magnacket. These are respectively an invisible hammock and I a jacket, worked by a strong magnetic system, Avhich is also invisible except ' for an iiidicator to set at the desired height. It would raise one to a height of 25 feet if connected to a stright llo : volt A. C. current. The indicator con- I trolled a rheostat. For every 25 foot I additional raise desired, it was merely 1 necessary " to stop the current to 110 1 volts, by means of a transformer, j While reading, I was fanned by an I electric fan run by power transmitted ; from the Zambesi Falls in South Africa. Suddenly I noticed some sparks shoot- I ing from Rover’s collar. Thinking they j v ould stop in a minute I paid no at- I tention to them. Soon I heard loud ; barks from above. Rover was rapidly rising. Immediately I jumped on my j patented lightweight bicycle. The tires I were inflated with Blanium, a new gas ; 50 times lighter than hydrogen. Alto- i gether the bicycle weighed 10 grams, i By use of a small propellor forward j motion w ' as given. I Speeding upon Rover from the North ! came a man with intention of making j away with him. I was at a disadvan- tage because the man who was chasing Rover was on a low powered motorcy- i cle. I would not give up the chase, I however. In the end, I caught him j when he ran out of distillate (cheap ' gasoline substitute.) I gave him a j “licking” and sent him away. I de- I scended to the ground with Rover, 1 where I soon fixed the trouble with i magnacket. I On reaching home, I found that my house had burnt to the ground. Imme- diately I radiogrammed the Ray D. O’Built House company for the latest model cottage. The answer said, “Would GRADUATION NUMBER you care to have the 1850 style for one- half price?” My answer was, “Yes. Please ship by radio express as there is a very severe snow storm due in one hour.” I thought that I got poor service, be- cause it took 15 minutes for the house to come. For example, once I received a large shipment of chopsticks from China in five minutes. I radiogrammed to New York city for a set of Bildioes. This is a kind of radio machine Avhich, with a set of attachments, soon puts up a small house for you if you time the Bildioe to Station BILD. For supper I radio to China for a dish of real chop suey, ray-casseed ham, eggs and potatoes. Ray-casseeing consists of impregnating a food with a special heat compound, and then cooking them by special radio waves. The sending and receiving takes about ten minutes. After cooking, the heat compound ' keeps the food w arm. By a secret pro- cess of mental telepathy, the food is ex- actly at the temperature desired by the person who is eating. This saves burn- ing one’s mouth and causing hot words. Whenever I was in my house I liad an automatic loudspeaker connected to a radio set. This was tuned to the S. O. D. waves. Just as I had finished my supper, I heard an S. O. D. (save our dirigible) call. As I was captain of the local branch of the U. S. air rescue guard, I called the crew and went to the rescue in the lifeoplane. The ship in distress was a Ford dirigible. It was very small, being about 750 feet long. After we saved the people we carried them to the station. There we took care of them until an airbus came along and took them away. This is just a sample of a day. Our life is so closely interwoven with radio that it would be impossible for us to get along without it. IN APPRECIATION OF MY 12-’27 AND 13-’27 VERGIL CLASSES I believe that I can say that this year has been the happiest of my life, for three reasons; The first you will under- stand without my mentioning it; the second is my Vergil class of 12-’27; the third my Vergil class of 13-’27. I give the palm to 12-’27 naturally, over 13-’27 by a margin no greater than the thick- ness of a Gillette blade. I remember distinctly the first day I looked over the 12-’27 group that I said to myself: “Willie, what have you done to deserve this?” And then when 13-’27 entered Room 18, I simply chuckled to myself with joy. Two such fine classes, so much pulchritude both masculine and feminine, so much intelligence and character. To say that I am proud of you and that there never will be any class in the future that will compare with you, is no more than stating sim- ple, well-known facts. Good luck and God bless yo u. “Par est fortuna labori.” NEWLY-ELECTED CAPTAINS Robert Peterson ’28, a veteran of two years, Avho consistently placed in all meets, was unanimously elected cap- tain of the cross-country team for 1927. MERCI BEAUCOUP The Authentic Staff desires in this last issue to thank all those who have helped so greatly to make the Authen- tic the success it was. We wish to thank all who contributed, all who helped in doing the typewriting, all the class editors, the faculty, and especially Mr. Alden and Miss Fowler, our advertisers, and finally all those who supported us so well by buying our paper and thereby putting the fin- ishing touches to a most successful and profitable year. THE BANQUET All who went to the banquet know wdiat a wonderful time we had. We set out and reached the Hotel Kenmore on the evening of Wednesday, May 18. There we, both 13-’27 and 12-’27 and our chaperons, foregathered. The banquet, held in the Crystal Room, was in the form of a dinner dance. After we all had our fill we listened to the wise and otherwise words of appreciation and advice poured forth into our unprotected and defenceless ears by our faculty, who were musical- ly (?) introduced by Toastmaster Nick Apalakis. Then the dancing began and con- tinued until twelve o’clock. We all went right home then, some of us get- ting home as early as two or half past. E.H.A. “THE ARRIVAL OF KITTY” One of the largest crowds of the sea- [ 29 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC son saw the presentation of the Senior Play of the Class of 12-’27, “The Ar- rival of Kitty.” The play was a great success in all ways, especially in regard to the quality of the acting. All who took part did wonderfully well. Mr. George MacNeil must be given credit for his able coaching and direc- ting of the play. Words cannot ex- press our deep appreciation to Mr. Mac- Neil for his untiring efforts in produc- ing this play. All three scenes took place in the of- fice of the Halcyon House in the Catskills, which was supposed to be a quiet and peaceful hotel suitable for a restful vacation. The biggest hit of the evening was made by Steve Haseltine, plajdng Bob- bie Baxter. What a roar went up from the audience as he strode onto the stage garbed as Kitty. He certainly was a wonderful girl. What about it Bay? George MacNeil as William Winkler gave an excellent performance. Al- though he did think that he was de- mented or was seeing double, he was | not. We can prove that. But still that glass of “bliss” may have had something to do with it. Jane, Winkler’s niece, was played by Mary Logan. Mary certainly did make a most adorable heroine and when she sprang that surprise at the end, wh} ' - we expected to see Steve take her into his strong, manly arms and — well — . You’re not bashful are you Steve? Priscilla Taylor, taking the part of Aunt Jane, w ' as perfect. She seemed to have a lot of faith in her smelling salts. Incidentally she supplied part of the throbbing love interest. Kitty, the actress, was our Jinny Learned. She acted her difficult part unusually well. What a mess she was in though. So Willie took the twenty thousand and married Kitty. Of course you didn’t marry him for his money. Jimmy Blenkhorn did full justice to the part of Benjamin Moore. Jimmie seemed to think that Willie had done all he possibly could to him but you just ask George if that’s true. But what a wonderful “girl” you did have. Eaymond Schwartz as Ting certainly lived up to all expectations. He took care of his part excellently well. Ting was a living proof of the benefits to be derived from living at the Halcyon. Gee, Bay! You forgot to charge for the air that your guests used during their stay. Marion Govatsos was Suzzette, the pe- tite and winsome maid. Say, tell us that secret, how old was Aunt Jane really? Sam, the colored porter (no relation to Sam, the old accordian man) char- acterized by John (Archie) Finnegan, was equal to the high standard set by the other members of the cast. Archie, as one of the principal comedians even surpassed himself. But why didn’t you put a shine on your face after you blacked up? Bemarks concerning the play were highly complimentary to the casL This play kept up the high degree of excel- lence set by the “Original Seniors” and was probably a greater financial success. The play committee, consisting of Edith Clark, chairman ; Horace Chase, Paul Gilman, Buth Moody and Bich- mond Metchear were so efficient that everything moved off without a hitch. E.H.A. A PARTING Edward H. Adzigian We now are Stoneham High students no more. This afternoon saw our end as such. But ever shall we hold in a bright, fresh spot of our minds the hap- py years we spent at Stoneham High. We shall never forget our comrades in the classes above and lielow. Those memories will always be held dear to us. Students of Stoneham High no more, we join the great army of its graduates. To you wlio follow us, we hand the noble heritage passed down to us by preceding classes. Keep the honor of Stoneham High ever clear. In sports, play the game hard but fair; in school, work hard and ever be square. Then when you too, have become Seniors, pass this heritage along as clean as it was given to us and as clean as we have passed it on to you. A college student arose from his table in a fashionable dining room and walk- ed toward the door. He was passing the house detective at the entrance when a silver sugar bowl dropped from his bulging coat. The guest glanced calmly at the offi- cer, then turned with an expression of polite annoyance toward the occupants of the room. “Buffians,” he said, “Who threw that?” and walked out.

One On Dad To Tom, who had been cutting up, his mother exclaimed wearily, “Why can’t you be a good boy?” “Well, Mother, I’ll be good for a nickel.” Mother: “For shame, you ought to be like your father, good for nothing.” Little Boy (gazing at gargoyles on Notre Dame:) Oh, ma, that face near the corner looks just like Aunt Hattie. Ma: Why, Johnnie, aren’t you asham- ed of yourself? Little Boy: Aw, ya can’t fool me. That’s made out of stone and can’t un- derstand what I’m saying. tiT J it Paul F. Gilman, 12-’27 Human nature is queer So no doubt may one fear Of the truth in the lines of this tale. There are those who prefer The tale of a “Sir” And many the tale of a “frail.” So just to please all (And as this story calls For a rhyme for its dreary refrain) I’ll take for a topic So’s to earn my small “kopec” An hour in a Boston “El” train. I rush by with the pack But a bird calls me back To insert in the farebox a nickle. Then I fly back again To get on the darn train Where I’m packed like a sweet mus- tard pickle. The guy next to me Seems to be on a spree His nose is as red as a beet. While two straps beyond Some rube with a corn Vainly strives to acquire a seat. The train does a jig While I knock some ginks wig From his bald and reflecting old pate, He shoots me a glare Then he picks up his hair And attempts to lay it on straight. The train mumbles on With a rattle forlorn And leaps into a sign posted station; Then it comes to a halt With a rib cracking jolt And a bang that could shatter a na- tion. Then the guard comes along With a face very long Just to say ’tis as far as the train goes Then I hop out and say In a delicate way Things that printed are dashes and rainbows. Now to this tale of woe (As always is so) A moral is justly hung on “Buy a Ford or an auto Go to work as you ought to And your life will be much more pro- longed.” P. S.

The visitors tried two rallies in the eighth and ninth innings, and the local twirler was not content to let the in- field do the work but he made the six put-outs in those two innings by strike- outs. In both frames the tying run was on third and in both cases he fanned the next three men successively. The scoring was done in the early part of the game. In the first inning, Belmont tallied on a bit of misplay by the local infield. However, Stoneham put across two runs in their half of the stanza. Bergholtz drew a pass and Ma- honey hit safely, ijlacing “Buck” on third. Mahoney advanced when Lam- son beat out Egan’s peg to first, filling the bases. Ford hit a w eak grounder to Farrell " who threw Bergholtz out at home, but Bailey slammed a single to short center and scored Mahoney and Lamson. In the third inning, Belmont tied the score. Egan got the only pass McCall issued and he stole second. He came home when Chase threw wild in at- tempting to get Wood at first. The home team came through in their half and the heads up baseball of Bergholtz contributed the winning run. Berg- holtz singled and Mahoney got hit by a pitched ball, then the wind took Lam- son’s infield fly just out of Farrell’s reach and “Buck” scored from second. Hughes again broke into the limelight when he raced out to deep right field and pulled Weatherbee’s long foul fly THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC out of the air. Bailey also had a great day out in the garden. He made two nice catches that would have been holtz led the hitting for Stoneham.

Amesbury 7 — Stoneham 1. Bunching their hits in the third and eighth innings enabled the Amesbury High team to defeat Stoneham by a 7 to 1 score at the Pomeworth Street grounds. This game was part of the Boys’ Week program sponsored by the Stoneham Rotary Club. A signet ring was presented Paul “Buck” Bergholtz as the most valuable player on the Stoneham nine by Mont Thornburg, chairman of ceremonies, at the close of the game. The Amesbury hitters got to McCall in the second inning and pushed three runs across. With the bases loade d Mudge doubled and cleaned the dia- mond. In the eighth, five clean hits, one of [ 34 ] GRADUATION NUMBER them a triple by Mudge, added four runs to Amesbury’s total. McCall, who certainly had an off day, was relieved by Mahoney in the last half of that inning. The local team could not seem to hit. Thej " drove the ball far enough, but the good fielding of the Amesbury gar- deners kept them hitless. The lead- off men hammered Richardson in the first inning and tallied, Bailey scoring, and for a few moments it looked as if Stoneham would have an easy game, ev- en after the visitors tightened down and finally ran away with the tilt.

In this league game, Reading hammered the local twirlers at will. Mahoney, making his starting debut on the mound for the home team, was pounded off the box. DeMello also made his initial appearance but the heavy hitters of the opponents necessi- tated the showers for Carl. “Bud’ Mc- Call was finally warmed up and sent in, finishing the game with his usual heady game, but the local team failed to sup- port him. Up to the sixth inning the game was locked in a 2-2 tie and it was an air tight game up to this point. The sixth, seventh and eighth innings were entire- ly different. Seven runs were chalked up by Reading on a multitude of bunch- ed hits and a few costly errors by the local fielders. The Stoneham pitchers were hit all over the field in these three innings and Reading sewed the ga me up. The Stoneham boys got away with a run in the first and another in the fourth. A shady decision by the um- pire in robbing Lamson of a walk killed a local rally. However, it would hardly ; have overcome Reading’s seven run ' lead.

This is the second League game that Lexington has taken from Stoneham. It was an even match all the way, and Stoneham’s one run lead looked big un- til the eighth inning, when the visitors pushed two runs across to win. McCall, Stoneham’s twirler, perform- ed brilliantly, fanning eleven of the Lexington batters. He allowed only four hits, but they were enough to win j the game. The local stickmen gleaned I seven bingles off Rauding, but the good 1 fielding of the visiting infield kept the j home boys close to the bases. I Rauding, Lexington’s star pitcher, was j the big man on his team. Besides fan- 1 ning nine batters, he clouted out two [ 35 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC doubles that brought in three of the runs.

Stoneham’s hitters slammed the two opposing pitchers, who were unable to stop them. Bergholtz drove out a home run in the ninth, the first one made by a high school player this season. Mc- Call, pitching for Stoneham, fanned 14 [ 36 ] GRADUATION NUMBER batters. The local nine sewed up the game in the fourth when they scored five runs. Four passes, three hits and an error did the damage. Reading tried hard in the fifth to tally, but the six run lead was too great, and McCall’s bends were too hard to hit.

S. 5 Woburn High profited by the mis- plays of the local high school nine, and they defeated the home team by a 5 to 1 score at Library Field, Woburn. The big seventh inning put the game on ice for Woburn. Three errors, a walk and a hit completed the damage of three runs. The Stoneham nine got six hits off Flaherty, the opposing twirlcr, while Woburn only got seven off McCall. Mc- Call, however, received poor support in the pinches. “Bud” fanned nine of the Woburn heavy hitters, but he handed out six walks. Donahue, the Woburn third sacker, had a big day at bat, poling out a double, and two singles at four times up. Bailey starred for the locals, both with the stick and in the field. He made a nice catch of Carey’s long fly, which looked like a sure homer, and he got a double and a single in four tries.

[ 39 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC The Junior English classes are work- ing hard on the play, “Julius Caesar,” which they hope to present to the pub- lic soon. Helen Packard and “Don” Glynn were a.]ipointed head ushers for 12-’27 gradu- ation. “Jerry’ Spangler and “Bill” Learned were appointed marshals. The Junior class wishes the Senior Classes of ’27 the best o’ luck for the coining years. Although we are anxious to take your place we are sorry to see you leaving us. i Iiss Linscott in Geometry class: “The circumference of two circles are to each other as their radios.” The following pupils were elected to represent their class in traffic dutj’’: Captain, Thomas Pardue ; Kuth Barn- stead, Daniel Griffin, Donald Glynn, Lillian Hunt, William Learned, Austin Patch, James Eatfertj Geraldine Span- gler. We, the pupils of Boom 9 can hardly express our appreciation for our teach- er’s kindness to us during this last year. Hr. S. in Latin : “Caesar is pressed, or lieing pressed.” Class of ’29 We all are verj ' sorry to hear that Don Whitehead, our class president, is leaving Stoneham. We greatly missed our beloved teach- er, Miss Fowler, during her recent ill- ness. At the girls’ track meet we witnessed a number of original jumpers and run- ners. They did everything differently. Amid much cheering and booing, the unsophisticated, nice, indispensable, re- nowned, procrastinators, the Juniors got two whole points, while our snappy, ob- serving, peppy, helpful, optomistic, mer- ry, orderly, refined, efficient, sensation- al class carried away all the honors with 43 points. Our big sisters, the Seniors, after a very hard battle, managed to amass the grand total of twenty. First Soph : “Who was that gentleman I saw you with last night?” Second Ditto : “That wasn’t a gentle- man, that was a Senior.” Mr. E. (doing an experiment) : “Go down and get me a slice of bread and a potato.” E. S.: “Can’t you wait for lunch?” Soph : “I thought you took algebra last year.” Junior: I did, but Miss Garland en- cored me.” Senior (to Soph) : “What would you do if you were in my shoes?” Soph (scornfully) : “I would get a shine.” Class of ’30 V7e extend our best wishes for all success to the graduation classes. Wo are sure Stoneham High is better be- cause of their stay. Although graduation is a big thing, our e ntering Senior High is bigger toj us. It is all right to be the domineering class in Junior High, but it is better to be the lowliest in Senior High. Heartiest congratulations to Dora Sheridan ’30, whom we think is Ernest Blanchard’s chief opponent in spelling, on her victory at WEEI. The final issue of the General Sci- ence News has just come out. We regret the loss of some of our classmates, but we hope their places will be filled by newcomers. Good luck and let us hear more of you. As a further proof of its ability, the class put over an interesting English program in Assembly. On behalf of the Junior High we thank all those who supported and help- ed the J. H. S. Operetta to be such a success. After the boys making such a good showing in basketball, the girls came back by winning the J. H. inter-class track meet. Mr. Pike has arranged for the boys to go swimming in the Malden “Y”. Needless to say he has had quite a busy time the last few weeks. Eemember that bean supper, Mr. Pike? The class extends its thanks and best wishes to Miss Eastman, Home room, Science, Algebra; Mr. Nadeau, Home [ 40 ] GRADUATION NUMBER Room 9-2, French; Mr. Hoyt, Home room 9-3, Arithmetic ; Miss Hunnewell, Latin, French; Miss Bessey, English; Miss Devlin, History; Miss Davis, Al- gebra; Miss Garland, Algebra; Mr. Pike, P. T.; Mrs. Lawson, P. T.; and all others who helped to make our 9th grade year a success. Class of ’31 The 8-2A Club are now electing of- ficers instead of running the club like a town meeting. ' ■ The 8-3 Junior Citizens Cl ub are as- tive in picking up the paper off the lawn and cleaning the basement bowls. They have also bought, with their club dues, a picture of Ann Hathaway’s cot- tage for Miss Peyton’s room. ; The 8th grade has contributed $5.00 to the Red Cross fund for the Mississip- pi flood. We regret to say that we have three of our members out with scarlet fever, Doris Smart, Muriel Olsen ; Sylvia is also under quarantine. The girls of 8-1 who took part in the track meet are: Nancy Arnold, Helen Canning, and Ethel Wessel. The 8-1 Literary and Grammar club is presenting room 32 with a framed picture of “Old Ironsides.” The club is also sending Muriel Olsen some flow- ers. Class of ’32 lany of ’32 are looking forward to French next year. The courses for the Class of ’32 for next year prove to be new and inter- esting. Many of ’32 helped to make the Junior High Operetta successful. The Class of ’32 girls and boys have helped to make special Assemblies more interesting. We of ’32 are looking forward to next year, but are sorry to leave this year. Many interesting Nature Talks have been led by Miss Crowell. Kiss her first — then argue about it. Little Jack Horner Stood on a corner Waiting to catch a ride. He got hit by the wheel Of an automobile — . The police called it plain suicide. Little Miss Muffett Sat on a tuffet. Drinking a bottle of rye A young man espied her And sat down beside her — Now really I can’t tell you why. Jack and Jill Went up the hill To fetch a pail of water. Jack came down With a broken crown — D’you think he went for w’ater? His Career Explorer Blevins, who had visited the wilds of Central Africa and the ice floes of Greenland, had announced he would soon leave on a trip to the South Pole. Two of his friends were talking it over. “I suppose,” remarked one, “that he got a taste for adventure in the Army.” “Not necessarily,” retorted the other. “He once drove a taxi in Chicago.” A fellow we know got a terrible shock the other day. He came home unexpectedly from a trip abroad and found his wife sitting in the drawing- room with another man. “Who is that?” he thundered. “My brother from India,” she falter- ed. And it was. He : The other day I Avent fishing, and caught one of those great big fish — let’s see; what is it you call them? She: You mean a whale? He: No, that couldnT have been it; I was using whales for bait. Convict 187564: Nice new cells they have here ! Convict: 385674: Pretty cagey, pretty cagey. In case of an auto wreck, who should speak first? And should the man pre- cede the lady through the windshield? A Wet Party Four girls at a sad movie with only one handkerchief.
