Pardue, Jr. Parents, Teacdiers, Friends and Class- mates : In behalf of the Class of 1928 I take great pleasure in welcoming you to these, our graduation exercises. For twelve years, we, as a class, have been together in both work and pleas- ure but today we are meeting for the final time. In the last four years our number has greatly decreased and those who have succeeded find truth in the proverb of old, “Success is wrought by deeds not words.” The realization of this truth is now forced upon us in ‘a singular light. We now realize that our deeds alone are not responsible for carrying us through the three years of our high school ca- reer but a large measure of our success is due to the deeds of others. Ever faithful parents, we are not too over-joyed in this day of triumph to realize that all our achievements in life, now and forevermore, we owe to you. Whether you are with us here or in that greater land beyond, your unceasing love alone makes life worth living. In you, our teachers, we have always found the guidance of a friend. Untiring, ever patient, helping both the ambitious and the indifferent, you have brought us a united body to this graduation day. Parents and teachers, we will hold you ever in our hearts as the nearest and dearest, realizing that your deeds have laid the foundation upon which this and our future success depends. Commencement is not a day of sad- ness. It is rather a day of triumph and joy. It is a time, without which dreams could never come true, and visions could never be realized. It is the great step in life which must be taken, an up- 1 ward and not a downward one. It brings to us more abundant life, where faith becomes sight. A day or sadness? No. A day of victory by which the gates to happiness have been opened wide. Classmates, this event does not rep- resent a treaty of peace by which our battle is ended. It is but an armistice in which our arms have been laid down only to Ije taken up again at the trum- pet sound. When it sounds we will find new obstacles. The foe will be in- creased, our allies will have decreased, and all will be a new battle. There will be no teacher’s guiding hand and perchance no parent’s. When the trum- pet sounds we will find a new world wliere success depends upon our deeds and ours alone. Yet this thought does not over shadow our joyful day because behind this cur- tain of toil we are inspired by a never I ending beacon of light which we call i happiness. Pure it is, never affected I by the outside turmoil, “Firm as the [ hills, unyielding as stone-.” All the j hardships and depressions of the world j can not overcome its ra} s. They pene- i trate the darkest night and outshine the brightest day. Through years of toil they will guide us and keep ever in the future a blossom of hope. My classmates, our days of fellowship have come to an end. Each one of us will find different paths to travel and never again on this earth will we meet in a united body. We are meeting for the final time and yet it is a joyful day for in our years together we find we have made virtuous friendships, which can never be severed by space Though we will be apart, we or time. [ 3 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC will find that sometime in the future we will be able to ponder on the past, and recollections of happy school days Avill bring peace to a discontented mo- ment. Working together we have found a key to life, that words are of no avail unless deeds be their master. Deeds not words. With this thought in mind, seventy-one young people en- ter upon the work of the world. ©ur Rational problem Thomas J. Connell The present national forest problem is one of the greatest of all times and should be regarded as such by every- one. Our forests are quickly becoming things of the past and unless some steps are taken to prevent this situation from occurring, we will soon be without the services of one of our greatest friends. The chief supply of lumber that we re- ceive from these forests is used in so many different ways that the simple enumeration would become monotonous. Along with this supply of lumber we also receive such important by-products as turpentine, alcohol, tars, gums, oils, maple syrup, sugars, and silk. There are not many people who real- ize the real value of the forests. First of all they act as climate regulators. The air near the forest is always the purest because the trees take in the carbon dioxide that is in the air and give off ox 3 ’’gen. The air is also very cool because the trees give off water in the form of cool moisture. The strong winds cannot penetrate through the trees and thus the forest districts are found to be very calm. The forests are also very useful as soil binders. The roots of the trees hold the ground firmly in place and pre- vent the landslides that result when the trees are cut down and the roots decay. To reforest such areas requires hard work, because the soil keeps sliding be- fore the new trees can become firmly rooted in the ground. Trees should al- ways be left on hilly places since no mountainous country was ever prosper- ous after the trees were cut down. Forests also control our water sup- plies. When rain falls in forest dis- tricts, it is absorbed in the roots or in the loose and spongy soil which is made thus by the decayed leaves. This pre- vents the water from running into the streams too quickly and thus avoids floods. Wherever there are forests, we always find young streams which are used for drinking water and for fishing; where there are no forests we find floods that destroy crops and lands. The rivers and streams receive the erod- ed land caused by these floods and thus become shallow and valueless for navi- gation. The terrible situation that ex- isted in Vermont a few months ago re- sulting in the loss of many human lives and the destruction of homes and prop- erty was due to the lack, of forests. The immensity of the present forest , problem can be shown by quoting a few ‘ statistics. At the time of the Indians there were 822,000,000 acres of forest land of which much has been cut for farms and pastures, for cities and sub- urbs as the populat ion has grown. At the present time there are 138,000,000 acres of untouched forests, 25,000,000 acres called second growth timber of commercial value, and 81,000,000 acres of ideal land fit only for growdng trees. This decrease in the forest area plainly shows that as the population is increas- ing, the forests are decreasing. The next problem that arises is to . find out where our forests have gone, i In the first place we use four times as much wood each year as we grow, and I at this rate it wall not be very long be- j fore our lumber supply will be entirely I exhausted. In this country we use 23,- I 000,000,000 cubic feet of wood each year, an amount which is equivalent to 250,- 000,000 trees of average height. Each year forest fires, decay, and insects de- stroy about 2,000,000,000 feet of wood, the railroads use 130,000,000 new ties, 5,000,000 trees are cut and made into telephone poles, mining and excavation use 260,000,000 feet, the box and barrel j industry uses 250,000,000 feet, while the I paper industries use 3,000,000 tons of ' pulp wood. Of all the wood that is cut each year in this country, one-third is used and the other two-thirds is wasted. With a little care two-thirds could be used thus doubling the commercial val- ue with the same cut. First, the tree is not cut close enougli to the ground; branches and tops which could be used [ 4 ] GRADUATION NUMBER for firewood and pulp are thrown away, and the rest of the tree is cut into logs and sent to the mill. Here it is still further wasted as it is sawed into dif- ferent shapes without much care. The wood then leaves the mill and goes to furniture makers and the like, where before it is made into any permanent object, more pieces are wasted. The wood that is used in ties, telephone poles, and houses is sometimes wasted by decay when not properly treated and cared for. The national forests would be able to look after themselves were it not for their many enemies. These enemies are fire, insects, disease, man, and animals, — the worst of all being fire. There are 36,000 fires each year that cost the gov- ernment about $100,000 each day. At that rate, in forty-one years there will be no forests left at all because to re- forest this burned area would take a long time and also would cost too much money. To lessen the total number of these fires, forest rangers are now em- ployed who detect such fires before they get a good start and either put them out themselves or else get help. These fires are caused in various ways. Sixty per cent are caused by carelessness, while the rest are deliberately set. Campers’ fires, sparks from ' trains, and the throw- ing away of lighted matches and cig- arettes are the careless ways by which these fires are started, while lightning is the only fire starter that cannot be prevented. At other times fires are set purposely by men who believe the for- ests are valueless and would rather have tlie land made into farms and pastures. One good motto then for everyone to have is “Avoid forest fires.” Insects are another enemy of trees. There are about 200,000 kinds of these enemies which cost the government $100,000,000 each year. Included in this group we find the familiar gypsy moth and brown tail moth, two insects that eat the leaves and suck the sap out of the trees. This insect problem is be- coming smaller each year as man, wdth the aid of birds, snakes, and toads, is slowly driving them away. Trees are also attacked by disease. The fungi is the most destructive be- cause it enters the tree and afterwards eats up the wood in order to grow. The white pine blister is another disease which causes the destruction of thous- ands of dollars worth of w’hite pine each year. Man is an enemy because he cuts, w ' astes, and causes fires. Ani- mals are destructive since they kill new trees by chewing or stepping on them. It now remains for us to do all that we can to help better the present forest situation. We can do this by planting trees in useless hilly country, by pro- tecting the young trees from falling timbers and animals, by cutting nothing but mature trees, and by planting two new’ trees for every one that we cut. If w’e do all in our power to help the government and other organizations whose aim is to better the present for- est conditions, in fifty years from now we w’ill not be living in a country that is being ruined by floods, w’hose rivers are valueless for navigation, and whose wood supply is entirely exhausted. |Htslorg of tl|c Class of 1928 Lillinn W. Hunt What is history? Tracing the deri- vation of the word, one finds that it means in its literal sense a learning or know’ing by inquiry of past events. Therefore, w’hat is history more or less than a record of happenings as remem- bered and set down by the narrator. Remembered? Yes. Volumes have been w’ritten recently of the Great War as it appeared in the memory of different officials. That is the answer ! History is a memorj’-, a kaleidoscopic series of mind pictures, covering days, months, and years past, that comes before us at our will. Although these last four years of our career as the class of 1928 will never hold a place in the world’s history, they will be chronicled forever in our minds, i Or, if you will, they w’ill be just a mem- ory. Words are such puny things that they can portray but a fraction of the fun, the cerebration, the occasional dalliance and the disappointments of our struggle I thus far tow’ard our ultimate goal. But reminiscence melts the years into mists ; w’hich roll aw’ay, disclosing the stage of ' the past, and, as we watch the beings I thereon, w’e exclaim apart, “Can this be [51 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC really I?” Now every class mustj of necessity and custom, tread, the same mill so we will only remind you that we too have passed through all the transient stages from unutterably “nervy and fresh” | freshmen to what you see before you. Also, let us say in passing that we have occupied approximately evtry hom»e- i room in the high school building from the ground floor to the attic. The first episode must be passed over lightly as a half step from the “ridicu- lous to the sublime” as we would have said at that time. Our lasting impres- sions of a year’s initiation into Stone- ham High School are few. Climbing over piles of lumber in the gymnasium to arrive at a Latin class in the new building ; copjdng page on page of The Tale of Two Cities by Dickens as a pen- alty for really enjoying English; and, the havoc wrought with the heart-whole and fanc 3 ' -free damsels of our class bj ' certain upper classmen. Learning something everj day but never taking it too seriously ' , we arrived at the next j ' ear, the first in wliich we took up our courses together as an organized bodj’. Willard Decker, pres- ident; Phyllis Eoss, vice-president; Helen Packard, secretarj " , and Florence McDonough, treasurer, and William Learned, chairman of the social com- mittee, made up the roster of our first class officers. Thus equipped, in we plunged blindlj ' , l)ut trusting to the greater poAvers that be to see us safelj- through. As Ave closed the uneA’entful j ear of 1925-26 Ave sighed profoundly, shaking our heads dismallj ' as Ave gazed at the still blank i)ages of our bank book.

The time honored privilege of having a Junior Prom was passed by due to force of circumstances. Do not ask us to recall painful memories.

Maj ' that stand as ' an estimal)le finale to an otherwise uncolorful epoch. i This is primarily ' a dry, uninteresting histoi’ 3 ' of the Class of 1928 but it takes tAAm to make an argument so also there must be, in most cases, tw’o factors to I make history , a protagonist and an an- tagonist. And, as teachers and instruct- ors seem to be indispensable in this pro- cess of pursuing an education, either under compulsion or of a free will, we cal] to mind some of those Avith whom AA-e have come in contact personally and Avhom Ave ma.y count as friends. I-,et us saj ' simplA " of our greatest friend and teacher, Mr. Charles J. Em- erson, “The 3 ' remembered the words he had spoken. But clearest of all, thej’ remembered him.” For the bumps and knocks that we have learned to take Avith a grin as a part of the rcAA ' ard, Ave thank all of our coaclies and phj ' sical directors. Then there is one aa’Iio has taught us l).y example the joA ' of living in work- ing and Avho has shoAA’ed us the beauty ' in music and the Avorth of the real things in this Avorld — Mr. Walter Dal- glish. There are three faces that appear simultaneously in our mind’s eye. Miss Vera ]Moore, IMr. Wilbert Skerrye, and Mr. Earl T. Thil)odeau, himself. Whj’- should such phenoma take place, you ask? Well, you’ve heard the old saying about birds of a feather, have you not? That answers whj ' these friends hold I equal place in our list. Their good ad- GRADUATION NUMBER vice and never failing good humor have been a veritable balm of Gilead to our often wounded spirits. We respectfully admire our principal, Mr. Watson, for being to such a degree, patient and forbearing while shaping our faltering courses, and we know sin- cerely that he is to be counted among our friends. What would a mill be without power? What would society be without the “underdog?” Of what value would a team be without players? We can claim no greater honor than to have furnished the power for our school’s athletic ma- chines. Those who have had the dis- tinction of being captains have played as one with their team. As “deeds not words” must suffice, let us say simply but proudly that we have had a vital part in keeping sports alive in Stone- ham High School. As surely as the sun sets in pastel beauty and climbs the steeps of morn- ing in glory, so does mankind toil on to its inevitable destiny. Our life plans are roughly drafted for us, and dis- counting the fact of their great simil- arity none are executed in exact duplici- ty. The courses laid out for us by the rest of our small world are as alike, however, as the stars in the midnight blue. And they w ho by choice or dint of necessity venture to be “different” in this present mimeographed existence may be termed ambassadors of a new era. Did you ever want a thing to be true and you would never be happy until your wish was granted? You kfiew, however, that it could never be true, so you just made believe in order to have the fun of it. We, as a class have been unwittingly pioneering and making believe this year to quite an extent. As each duty arose there was nothing to do but be optimis- tic, pucker up and whistle and show subsequent signs of animation. It may be that we have not worried enough, but it was easier to let President Par- due do that. We willingly pass the bouquets to him now for having both thought and acted for us during a stren- uous and happy year. The Authentic staff wishes to be ego- tistical for a moment. The school pa- per as edited by the Senior Class has been a decided triumph this year and we are very proud to be able to say that all previous records for advertis- ing were surpassed during this period of publication. The social life of the last year of high school is always varied but su- premely important. Although it did not stretch the money bag visibly, a Senior dance held in December began the round of pleasures asupiciously. What next? The play’s the thing 1 Would you have cheese? Mild? Lim- berger? Or perhaps you prefer Oh Boy Gum! We had them all the night of the annual play and they were partaken of with enjoyment by everyone. The Senior Class banquet! Awaited in ex- pectation and anticipation for three years, the supreme event at last came to pass at the Hotel Kenmore. We are richer by the experience and will al- ways remember the Crystal Ball Room with a twinkle in our eyes and a smile in our hearts. That is all that we may share with others. The dreams and our individual memories are ours to keep. There is nothing left but today. And as the mists roll back across the drama obscur- ing our vision for another age each one assumes a different character, each of us has a new role to play on an even nobler stage. And in parting to enter the amphitheatre by our divers entran- ces, we give each other greeting. Pax vobiscum — Peace be with you. Ollass rophecu Gordon L. Fanjoy It is now the year 1950. All roads lead to Chicago where another World’s Fair is being held. All business has been set aside for the occasion, giving everyone an opportunity to attend this celebration. While at the depot, making reserva- tions, I happened to spy Thomas Pardue I getting off the weekly train from Wig- ! glyville. Tom was looking old and wor- j ried, having lost nearly all his hair. ! After a few minutes of conversation, he told me that he had been in. the poultry business, but had lost all his chickens but Cynthia. The terror of his life was upon him. He was afraid he would die [71 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC henless. To clieer Tom up I invited him to accompany me to Chicago, which offer he gladly accepted. Upon our arrival in Chicago we found the city thronged. The first thing that attracted our attention was a large tent on which a sign read, “R. Franklin Hamlin’s Circus.” Marian deGruchy, dressed as an Indian was selling tickets. She gave us a hearty welcome and told us that she and Dick were life partners in the circus business. Dick was one of the most clever clowns in his troupe ; due to Marian’s constant care. Just inside the entrance, to our great sur- ; prise, we came upon Eddie Fulton, who was exhibiting some lions he had cap- j tured in the wilds of Lincolnville. Ed- die Tvas looking fine but he said he had rheumatism from walking beside j Brooks. After leaving Eddie who should we meet but Greta Crandall and Irma Olsen in a candy booth. Greta and Irma had taken over Fannie Farmer’s , business and certainly looked pros- perous. The music was fine, the band being led by the famous Charles B. Marr, who j gave quite an exhibition of contortion, i Playing the slide-trombone w’as Julian j Kelly, who wms “tearing the music off l)y ' yards.” Over in one coiaier of the band, | Bill Breagy ■was seeing how hard he could pound the drums without break- ing them. Lillian Hunt was the soloist for Charlie’s band. Lillian, now a mez- zo-soprano and a graduate of the Orsil- lo School of Music, certainly reflects j great credit on her teacher, Professor Lewds A. Orsillo. She sang a little ■ song, of which I remember the chorus. ; Riding around the Fellsway In my little Ford sedan, i Those Avere the happy days, Thel, | When I could hold your hand.

At the next tent Bill Learned Avas exhibiting some prize horses. Bill told us that he now owned a homestead with a Barnstead on it. Ruth was wdth him and had become quite a horsewoman. Turning the next corner Ave bumped into Henry Richardson, w ' ho AA ' as blow- ing up and selling toy balloons. He told Tom A’ery confidentially that he was taking a correspondence course in avia- tion and that this was his first lesson. Wishing to find our way to the greas- ed pole, Ave sought the information bu- reau. The lady Avho passed out the in- formation Avas none other than our old schoolmate, Gladys LaAvson. Gladys could tell you Avhat you wanted before you really knew yourself. Harry Scan- lon Avas climbing the greased pole. Harry said that the reason for his being such a successful climber was that he never slipped.

We again clasped hands with our old friend, Charles Gus Fletcher. Gus was still selling eggs and carried his sam- ples with him. On leaving the restaurant, we started to cross the street.

In the street car on our way to the sta- tion, we had a very pleasant conversa- tion with Chet Olsen and his bride-to- be, Ruth Baert. Chet had been mining of late and told us he had dug up quite a little pile. We entirely forgot to visit the radio station BUNK, where Phyllis Ross gave daily talks on how to feed the family. Since we had some time to wait before our train would be made up, Tom wish- ed for something to read. We strolled over to “The Little Corner Book Store.” Who should be running it but Cornelia Chesley and Francis Murphy. Conny told us that Yeda Eramo was the tele- graph operator in the Wells Street De- pot, and held the record for speed. We also saw Evelyn Roberts and Car- oline Potter, who had been to the fair and were returning to Philadelphia. These two dignified ladies were now members of the faculty of Flunk Uni- versity. Our train had been made ready and Tom and I climbed on board. Soon we were speeding eastAvard and homeward. The cxcuision had been a happy one but enUrely too short.

We hope she can maintain the strict silence in the future that she has in the past and cultivate dignified Seniors from the present Juniors. II Item — To Mr. Thibodeau, the good- natured czar of Room 13, we wish the best of luck on his forthcoming voyage. We trust that he will continue to use his self-control and remain single, for we feel his undivided attention will be needed to govern the would-be Seniors of the next year. III Item — We bequeath to Mr. Sker- rye, our classical home room teacher, a broader sense of humor, which will be necessary if he is to control in the fol- lowing j’ear the present class of Juniors. This wish, if as difficult to perform as it seems, may be made easier by a glimpse of the present Junior Class. It is our wish and desire: 1. That Mr. Thibodeau be formally appointed guardian of the class statu- ary: namely, a rolmst pig. The aljove named person is to remain guardian of the said statuary until the nghtful heirs become of age on or after the fifth of September, in the year one thousand nine hundred and twenty-eight. He 1 may then transfer the property to the I would-be Seniors of 1929, if after j thorough examination he finds no trace of insanity and judges them to be far I enough from their former state of in- ! fancj’’ to safely guard the aforenamed ' property. : 2. That those who are lucky enough : to gain Room 12 as their final resting place, refrain from all unnecessary I noise or spit-l)all battles in honored ! remembrance of those who dwelt there : before them. j 3. Lastly, we desire that those who I inhabit the hayloft, better known as I Room 18, will kindly keep awaj’ from 1 the windows because many top heavy i tilings have fallen out. We hope also j that the would-be Seniors will pledge themselves to be loyal and quiet in the I presence of the new instructor and act 1 as dignified as their predecessors. I In Avitness Avhereof, we, the Class of j 1928, the testators of this our last Will and Testament, set our hand and seal on this fifteenth day of June, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and tAventy-eight.

To the casual observer this would seem to in- dicate that the standard of our sports has fallen. This is far from the truth, j however. The truth is that we have | been greatly handicapped by the gradu- ‘ ation of the two senior classes of last year. This is made evident, not only in athletics, but in other phases of school life also. Our football team was probably hurt by this more than any other team, with the possible exception of basketball. At the beginning of the season last Sep- tember there were only three or four men available who had had any pre- vious experience. The rest of the mate- rial was not only green, but very light, i On top of all this they were up against a schedule which inight well , have caused a much better team to have ' an unsuccessful season. The members of this year’s football team certainly | deserve a great deal of credit for stick- ing with the team throughout the sea- son.. I Our cross country team was not quite so badly off as were their football , brethren, and the team had a fairly sue- , cessful season, winning a good ijercen- ; tage of its runs. | The hockey team repriesented the school well on the ice and kept itself : well to the front in hockey circles. ; The team fell just one game short of getting into the round robin, and that j game was lost through a break. 1 Basketball looked almost helpless at i the beginning of the season, owing to the lack of material. With only two j letter men left from the previous year, ! the outlook was rather bad, but Coach Eaton succeeded in hammering a team into shape which humbled our greatest basketball rival, Reading. The team didn’t win any too many games, but it had “the old fight.” The gym team had a successful sea- son this year. They put on a number of exhibitions at various gyms and as a climax to the season they engaged in an official meet with Norwood High and decisively defeated them, thus win- ning, technically, at least, the title of State Championship, and making S. H. S. known as a pioneer in what is a com- paratively new field of sport. Baseball looked al)out as hopeless as the other sports with only two letter men as a nucleus upon which to build a team. A club was organized, however, which was as good as any that S. H. S. has had for some time. It is probable that baseball, as well as the other sports will have a brighter outlook next year since the teams will have a larger num- ber of veterans. While victories have been rather scarce this year, our athletics have not been unsuccessful. Ever.y team which Stoneham High School has put forth this year has had the old fighting spirit and “never say die” attitude of S. H. S. teams of former years. After all, victory is not the main point to be look- ed for in athletics, but rather more par- ticipation. This year our athletics have drawn out a large number of candi- dates, practically every boy being active in some sport, either class or varsity. In addition to this we can say with pride that our school has generously supoorted its teams. The one fact which stands out above all others is the fact that Stoneham High School sports have always been clean, and that its teams have always had a reputation for good sportsman- ship, both at home and away, not only this year, but in past years. MacDONALD MEDALS The members of this year’s graduat- ing class who have been awarded the [ 15 ] TEE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC MacDonald Medals arc Violet Blanchard and Thomas Connell. These medals are awarded annually to the boy and girl in the graduating elasSj who have the best records in scholarship, character, and good influence in the school. The medals are customarily presented at the graduation exercises, generally by some one ■who was a personal friend of Prin- cipal MacDonald. We wish to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners of this year’s medals. We feel that they highly de- serve the honor bestowed. OUR COVER Since the motto of the Senior Class is, “Deeds, not Words,’’ the Authentic staff thought it would be appropriate to have this motto on the cover along with some illustrations of the motto. For this illustration Ave finally decided on the drawing of Lindl)ergh by Francis Yancey, Class of ’30. Lindbergh is a typical young American youth, Avho is a firm believer in “Deeds’’, as one may see from his recent epic achievement. VOBIS MAGNAS GRATIAS AGIMUS ond in the University of Chicago Tourn- ament. He was also the sporting edi- tor of his high school papier. Ir. James has been very active in sports at Springfield. Ke played three years on the varsity basketball team, being captain this year, three years of varsity soccer, and played second base in this year’s baseball team. The bas- ketball team which he captained this 3 ’ear was considered one of the finest teams in the East. In addition to this he captained the Freshman basketball team. While he is at Stoneham, Mr. James Avill coach class soccer in the fall and vaisity basketball in the winter. He will also have supervision of the class Avork. In the spring he Avill have other class sports, probably class !)aseball or track. He aauII i robably coach the gjun team. While in school, Mr. James has coach- ed at the Central and Technical High Schools of Springfield. He has super- vised physical education at the Wash- iiigton Grammar school of Waterbury, Conn., the Eastern Avenue Grammar school at Springfield, and at the State Sjmitarium at Westfield. The Authentic Staff Avishes to take this last opportunity to thank all those Avho have helped in any way to make the Authentic a success. We AAush to extend our thanks to all who contributed material, all the class editors, all those Avho helped in doing the typeAvriting, our adv’ertisers, the faculty, and especially Mr. Alden, our advisor; Miss French, Miss Ranney and Miss Bessey, and last but not least, all those Avho supported us bj " buying our magazine. BASKETBALL COACH ENGAGED The services of Alvin L. James have been engaged as physical director and basketball coach for next year. Mr. James is 22 jmars old, and is a gradu- ate of Crosby High School of Water- bury, Conn., and a menil)er of this year’s graduating class of the Inter- national Y. M. C. A. College of Spring- field.

After the pajunent of my debts and I funeral charges, I bequeath and devise ; as folloAvs: To the Class of 1929 the privilege of carrying on my business for another year, on the condition that they sur- render this right to the Class of 1930 the folloAving year. To the Library, a complete set of this year’s Authentic to perpetuate forever the memory of the Class of 1928. In testimony whereof, I hereunto set my hand, and in the presence of three AA’itnesses declare this to be my last will, this fifteenth day of June in the year one thousand nine hundred and twenty- eight. The Authentic. On this fifteenth day of June, A. D. 1928, The Authentic of Stoneham, Mas- 1 sachusetts, has signed the foregoing in- [IG] GRADUATION NUMBER strument in our presence, declaring it to be its last will, and as witnesses thereof we three do now, at its request, in its presence, and in the presence of each other, hereto subscribe our names.

HIGH SCHOOL MEMORIAL EXERCISES. Taken from “Independent.” The combined Junior and Senior High School exercises were held at Ar- ■ I mory Hall on Tuesday morning at 10.00 t o’clock. The Armory was very appro- I priately decorated for the occasion with I a profusion of flowers and the National colors. The student body marched from the High School under the direction of pupil marshals. The High School Orchestra rendered the introductory march, which was fol- lowed by the entrance of members of the veteran organizations and auxiliary ; units. INlr. Watson, principal of the High i School, extended the welcome of the ' school to the veterans, touching briefly upon the appreciation which is felt for ' what these oganizations have done for the community and the nation at large. A fine program was then given by the school, every number delivered showing thoroughness of preparation as to re- flect much credit upon both pupils and I the teachers who had the resi)onsibility j of the arrangement of the numbers. Following the program by the pupils, I Mr. Watson introduced representatives I of the several organizations who spoke I to the pupils. The first speaker was j Comrade Trull of the Grand Army of ! the Republic who spoke of the rapid j decrease in number of the G. A. R. and [their widows. He spoke of the apprec- ' iation of the G. A. R. members for the ' kindness shown them on all sides, and pointed out the fact that this kindness in general and that respect and loyalty to the flag is increasing. He empha- sized the significance of the flag in a very fine manner. The second speaker was Commander Knapton of the Spanish War Veterans, who spoke very briefly on the apprecia- tion felt for the tributes shown his comrades. The third speaker was Comrade Davis who spoke very eloquently and fitting- ly on patriotism. He said in part, “This, our flag, stands today, an unsul- lied tribute of true patriotic loyalty. Instill this love of the flag into the hearts of youth. When youth has learned what that flag cost, it will be better able to defend its Constitution, and make better men and women for our nation.” The fourth speaker was Commander Horne of the G. A. R. Commander Johnson spoke for the American Legion and gave a brief as- surance of the willingness and deter- mination of that body to “Carry On.” As the school year closes it is fitting [ 17 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC The program follows: March S.

The choice off the present Sen- ior Class for this honor is Thomas Par- due. w’ho has served the class faithfully and w’ell as president. Tom was very active In the Operetta, handling much of the business related to it and at the same time taking an imoortant part in the cast. He has also been prominent in the work of the orchestra during the current year. In addition to this he has rendered valu- able service to the school as Captain of the Traffic Squad. By keeping his as- sistants efficient in the performance of their duties he has done away with the old time traffic congestion. In short, we may say that in all his activities this year, Tom has proved himself a born leader.

Shorty Dearborn relieved Theroux in the fourth inning and pitched equally as well as Theroux, striking out three men in the three innings he pitched. The fielding highlight of the game was contributed by Spud Rice. Cole hit a line drive that Rice speared one hand and threw to Widell at second, making a double play. Stoneham scored three runs in the third inning, two runs in the fifth in- ning and five runs in the sixth inning. Swampseott scored one run in the first inning, one run in the fifth inning, and two runs in the sixth inning.

The local lads got away to a one run lead in the first inning. Stoneham could not hold its scant lead, however, despite sensational outhelding by Joey Lundre- gan and Vinny Hughes. by Shorty Dearborn. His twisting curves had the Vv ' ilmingtoii batters buf- faloed. But the breaks went against him and the game slipped from Stone- i ham’s grasp. Wilmington emerged from the conflict on the long end of a 3 to 2 score. Stoneham made a desperate ef- fort to tie up the game in the ninth but a beautiful peg by Kidder nailed the ambitious runner at the plate. very spectacular. Joey Lundregan’s one hand stab of a line drive gave Stoneham rooters a chance to cheer. Stoneham 9 — Punchard 8 Stoneham ten innings to defeat Pun- chard by the score of 9 to 8.

Lexington 7 — Stoneham 6 Stoneham journeyed to Lexington on May 22, and lost a heart breaking game. The score at the end of the game stood 7 to 6 in favor of Lexington. Marston started on the mound for Stoneham and received a warm recep- tion. When the deluge of hits, runs, errors, and passes ended, Lexington had a four run lead in the first frame. The second inning fouird Art Theroux pitching for Stoneham, with Marston in center field. Theroux pitched well and finally in the fourth inning Stoneham rallied pushing three runs across.

Again in the sixth the Stoneham bats got to work and hits started going to all directions of the field and we col- lected three more tallies. This gave us a lead of 6 to 3, The game looked like Stoneham’s until the fateful seventh ar- rived. Lexington bunched a couple of hits in a roAv and then the locals became unsettled just long enough to let their opponents score four runs. The game was lost and with it went Stoneham ' s visions of first place. Carpenter and McPhee starred at bat for Lexington. For Stoneham Gray, Lundregan, and Eice came through with important hits while Griffin and Ad- zigian excelled in the field. Stoneham 3 — Howe 2 Stoneham defeated Howe High School in a ten inning thriller at the latter’s field. Theroux started on the mound for Stoneham, but was wild. Griffin fol- lowed, but retired in favor of Shorty Dearborn. Howe got aw’ay to a two run lead in the initial frame. Stoneham scored one run in the first inning. The score remained the same until the ninth inning when Stoneham staged a rally with two out. Marston hit a double to deep left, Eed advanced to third on Griffin’s infield hit and scored when Lundregan’s roller went through Burke. The game then went into extra innings. Dearborn opened up the tenth for the locals Avith a hard drive to left field, the hit being good for tAvo sacks. L. Dushane singled, sending Shorty to third.

Tlie sc.ore was 6 to 4 in favor of Bel- mont. The local boys fought hard to pin a defeat on the champs but were unsuccessful. It will be remembered that the same teams met earlier in the season and Belmont won by fourteen runs. In the second clash Stoneham lost by tw ' o runs. One can readily see what a vast improvement our High School team has made. Shorty Dearborn started the game for j Stoneham. His pitching was very good and he held Belmont scoreless until the breaks went against him. Some of his team mates erred and a couple of hits enabled Belmont to get three runs. Shorty was then relieved by Lefty The- roux, the star sophomore hurler. Stone- ham got to Scott, who started for Bel- mont and he had to be relieved by Bar- rel, the ace of the Belmont pitching staff. Stoneham managed to score in the ninth, but Farrell had complete con- trol of the game during his stay in the box. Flanders, White, and Farrell shone for Belmont while Griffin, Stoneham’s first baseman, was the big noise for I Stoneham. Incidentally Freddie Cor- | coran, playing his first full game for | the blue and white, played well in the i center field. Stoneham High 8 — Reading High 7 Stoneham High’s baseball team de- feated Reading at the local ball field by the score of 8 to 7. The win enabled | Stoneham to take second place in the j Middlesex League standing. | Reading started the game by scoring four runs in the first inning. Theroux I was a bit wild in the first inning and was relieved by Dearborn, who held Reading for the remainder of the game. Several Stoneham rallies were checked by the masterful pitching of Dougherty. The Reading players bunched their hits early in the game and these hits figured in all their scoring. Stoneham gradually made the game more interesting by creeping up on Reading. Reading was leading 8 to 6 in the ninth inning when Stoneham came to bat. Griffin led off with a single to center field, Marston and Lun- dregan were passed. Spud Rice then came to bat and smacked out a double and the game was Stoneham’s.

Several times the local team had the bases loaded but were unable to score. The longest hits of the game were made by Haley of Winthrop and Mar- ston of Stoneham. The fielding gem of the game was contributed by Joe Lundregan by mak- ing a shoe string catch from the bat of Shafer and executing a double play to Griffin at first base. Haley, McCann and MacPherson starred for Winthrop, while Marston, Griffin, Finnegan and Lundregan fea- tured for Stoneham.

They have also defeated the Wakefield sec- onds by a score of 9 to 6. This record should promise good ball teams to come in Stoneham. The second team is com- posed of the following men who cer- j tainly deserve a good deal of credit: Houston, Corcoran, Patch, Tilton, Black- burn, Finnegan, Eyder, Hibbard, May and Currier.

The two teams were coached by Miss Davis and Mr. Nadeau and the debate was judged by Miss Smith and Miss Peyton. It was held June 0 in Miss Davis’s room. Mr. Nadeau’s Ancient History class is planning on producing a play which has been written by one of the pupils. Each home room of the Class of ’31 has orgaiiized a baseball team and there have been several games among these teams. 1932 The Class of ’32 wishes to take this chance to thank the Class of ’31 for the chance to attend its fine socials. The pupils of 8-1 enjoyed a trip to Boston on which the Custom House, Old State House, Ginn Publishing Co., and Arnold Arlmretum were visited. We extend our best wishes for all suc- cess to the graduating class. We will regret the loss of some of our members, but we hope their places will be filled with newcomers. Tlie pupils of 8-2 enjoyed a trip to th e Navy Yard and Airport a short time ago. The class extends its thanks and best wishes to its home room teachers. Miss Hunnewell, Room 33; Miss Devlin, Room 32; and Mr. Whittemore, Room 25, and also to all others who made this past year a success. We hope our last year in Junior High will be the best. We wish the best of luck to the Class of ’31 on its journey through S. H. S. The class wishes to thank Miss Smith who has chaperoned the many trips we have taken. We Wonder Why Alma Patch is so interested in Bug(s) and Bee(s). If Bob Kelly is a woman-hater. If a certain member of the class was ever seen twice w ' ith the same girl. Who Miss ’32 is. Who “Jim” refers to as the two “Helen’s.” Why a number of boys are always late from gym. Why certain girls don’t let their hair grow. (Because they like “Bobs.”) K. H. (speaking on conservation of forests) : “If we used our heads more we would not waste so much wood.” 1933 On June 4 the pupils of Room 28 put on a negro program which was very suc- cessful. The performers, needless to say, were dressed as negroes. They sang songs, played the uke, and had a humorous “Ghost Play” which was very good. Division I is making up a scrapbook of original poems, stories, jokes and cartoons. The name of the scrapbook is “The Spirit of 7-1.” In the study of occupations 7-1 went to the East Boston Airport and Navy Yard three weeks ago; 7-II went last week and 7-III is soon to go.
