Or being hated, don’t give away to hating. And yet not 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 Disaster 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 ' 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 beginnings And never breath a word about your loss; . If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone. And so to hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!” If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue. Or walk with Kings — nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you. If all men count with you, but none too much If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run. Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it. And — which is more — you’ll be a Man, my son ! — Kipling. Our last year has come and gone, and as we linger before stepping from the shelter and protection of our high school into the broad highway of life, let us look back over our senior year. On the subject of sports we can say much. The past year has been one of the most successful. Without any ex- ceptions, every team has come out either on top or very near the top. But after all, victory is not the most important point in athletics. The one fact which stands out above all others is that Stone- ham High sports have always been clean, and that all S. H. S. teams have had the reputation for good sportsman- ship. It is for you, future classes of Stoneham High, to keep our records as they have been in the past, and to make Stoneham High an outstanding school in the world of sports. One of the highlights of the year was our Winter Carnival. Considering that this was the first thing of the kind in [ 3 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC the history of Stoneham High, its suc- cess was extraordinary to the point of the supernatural, for we feel that the Fates were indeed with us, when, after a week of sunny days, Friday morning found tiny white flakes slowly but sure- ly covering the ground. The longed-for, yes, the prayed-for, blessed snow had come ! Perhaps this like many other things was one of Coach Gordon’s mir- acles. And so, through a maze of operettas, carnivals, plays, dances, we have come to the end of our Senior year. The edi- tor wishes to take this last opportunity to thank each and every member of the staff for their untiring efforts and help- ful co-operation. We wish to extend, also, our thanks not only to those who contributed material in the form of stories, poems, essays, or write-ups, but also to the class editors our advertisers, and the faculty. Here we would like to express our appreciation of Mr. Alden’s patient and unceasing efforts as our faculty advisor. We also wish to thank Miss French and Miss Bessey, who con- tributed greatly to the success of our literary department. And last, but not least, all those who supported us by buy- ing our magazine. LETTER ASSEMBLY At a special letter assembly held on March 8, 1929, the following members of the various winter sport teams re- ceived letters: Girls’ basketball — Captain Edna Berg- holtz, Manager Elizabeth Moulton, Ella Hovey, Dorothy Dodge, Zoa Newhall, Virginia Lane, Zetta Moody, Captain- elect Pauline Devlin, Eleanor Pardue, Ruth Blockel, Mary Rafferty, Phyllis Dodge, Dorothy Rogers, and Hazel Young.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN Be it remembered, that I, the Authen- HONORS I j At an assembly held on Friday, April I 26, 1929, Principal Howard W. Watson ! announced the names of honor pupils I for this year’s graduating class, i The winners of the MacDonald med- I als are : Cynthia Bagdikian, Dorothy j Dodge, and Elizabeth Durkee. ! Ordinarily one boy and one girl re- 1 ceive the MacDonald awards, but un- I usual conditions this year resulted in i awards to girls only. The medals are : awarded in accordance with rules laid ! down by the former trustees of the ' fund and provide that the winners must j be of excellent character, of outstanding ! good influence in the school, and be high I in scholarship. i There are, of course, boys in the class j who are of high personal character and I of good influence in the school but none 1 of these have high enough scholarship I to warrant the MacDonald award. On I the other hand several boys who are [ 4 ] GRADUATION NUMBER in the first quarter of the class are not of outstanding influence according to the standards laid down by the trustees. Neither have their records of service and leadership been remarkable. For this reason the medals were awarded this year to girls only. Three medals were awarded instead of the usual two | because the records of the pupils were nearly identical. Their scholarship records are high and all have been of outstanding good in fluence in the school, are of high per- sonal character, and have long records of service as leaders. The following pupils were awarded places in the honor group: Cynthia Bag- dikian, Lois Detheridge, Dorothy Dodge, Elizabeth Durkee, Phyllis Eldridge, Dorothy Mellett, Arline Parks, Flor- ence Rivers, Helen Thornburg. % THE CHAMPIONSHIP For the very first time in many years The boys have brought it home; Now we all sincerely hope That it will cease to roam. After trying so hard for these long years To bring it to Stoneham High They at last succeeded in making it look Like old da3 ' s that have since gone by. j We owe our boys a tribute For bringing home the cup And our only hope and wish is That the same old spirit keeps up. Edgar Martin ’30. 1 SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL MEMORIAL ! EXERCISES " E xercises commemorating Memorial Day were held by the Senior High School in the assembly hall on Wednes- day morning at 11.00 o’clock. The hall was very prettily decorated with a profusion of flowers, greens, and the National colors. The High School orchestra played an introductory march, after which mem- bers of the Grand Army of the Repub- lic, Spanish War Veterans, members of the American Legion, and representa- tives from the various women’s patriot- ic organizations were escorted into the hall amid tumuPuous applause. A fine program appropriate to Memorial Day was then given bv the school. Principal Watson extended the wel- come of the school to the veterans and other guests, speaking briefly of the ap- preciation that is felt for the things that these organizations have done and are doing for the community and the nation. Following the program, representa- tives of the three veteran organizations were introduce d to the pupils by Prin- cipal Watson. The first speaker was Comrade Trull of the Grand Army of the Republic, who delivered an inspir- ing address on the flag. He was follow- ed by Comrade Davis who besought the pupils to honor their country and prove their loyalty in their everyday deeds. At the end of his speech he recited “The Empty Sleeve” in a very effective and heart-warming manner. Past Commander Ames of the Spanish War Veterans related incidents of the Spanish American War and laid stress upon having every child in the nation taught to respect and love the flag. Commander Saxby of the American Le- gion then made a brief speech on the principles for which the World War was fought, emphasizing the significance of the poem, “In Flanders Field.” The program follows: March S.

To them ! Micritsing Arline E. Parks This whirlwind age of ours might well be called an advertising age. Advertis- ing, as we know it today, is a recent de- velopment, but adv’ertising itself is by no means young. The first advertising was that done by criers who walked through the streets shouting in a loud voice their news or announcements. Signs Avere also used, but not CA’eryone { could read. Therefore this method was not very effective. Printing was an im- portant step in the development of ad- I A’crtising. Anything from a cargo of silk to a cow was advertised in the news- pajAers. These notices were but a few lines stating bare facts. With the spread of newspapers went the groAvth of ad- A ' ertising. These advertisements were still little more than announcements or notices. It was not until the middle of the last century that advertising in its modern sense began to be used. Until then the notices in the papers were of GRADUATION NUiVIBER ordinary everyday commodities of life [ which were for sale to anyone who could l afford them. But now certain mer- j chants began to advertise, not to make j the public buy what it wanted, but to ! sell the public what they wished to sell, | namely, patent medicines. | The gullible public was persuaded by ; the advertisements and the medicine | shows that this one medicine would cure its malady, whatever the nature of it. : As long as these quack remedies con- ' tinned to be sold, advertising continued apace. Its success was now assured. I Men in other fields of business began to realize that they, too, might utilize | this new mystery for their own benefit, i The newspaper was practically the only well-known medium. Magazines had , not been thought of in that respect. ! They were themselves advertised in the j daily newspapers. ] An interesting story is told about this period in the advertising game. The ! editor of the “New York Ledger,” a | little magazine struggling for existence, decided to do a little advertising in an endeavor to build up circulation. He : wrote an announcement consisting of | eight words, “Read Mrs. SouthWorth’s ’ New Story in the ‘Ledger’,” and sent it to the “New York Herald” marked for ; “one line.” The editor’s handwriting | was so bad that the words were read in : the “Herald” office as “one page.” Ac- j cordingly the line was set up and re- i peated so as to occupy a whole page. | The next morning the editor was thun- derstruck. He had not enough money to his name to pay the bill. He rushed excitedly over to the “Herald” office, but it was too late to do any good. In a short time the results of the page advertisement began to be felt. Orders for the “Ledger” poured in until the entire edition was exhausted and another one was printed. The success of the “Ledger” was then established. Ever after that time Mr. Bonner, the editor, was an ardent believer in ad- vertising and a liberal purchaser of space. The Procter Gamble Company is a widely advertised firm with an inter- esting history. In 1827, a candle-maker named William Procter formed a part- nership with James Gamble and the firm of Procter Gamble was started. One of these men came from England, the other from Ireland. They both settled in Cincinnati and married sisters. It was at their father-in-law’s suggestion that they formed the partnership. In those days soap was not branded or moulded into cakes. The retailer cut as many pounds of the semi-soft product as the consumer desired. The idea of a nationally marketed soap was unknown. The business grew and expanded and improvements were constantly made. In 1879 they introduced Ivory Soap which they began to advertise in 1880 by a full page magazine advertisement. Advertisements of Ivory Soap have been found in magazines ever since. The de- mand grew so large that Procter Gam- ble bent all their energies on the ex- clusive manufacture of Ivory Soap. In 1907 the production of P. G. Naphtha Soap was started. Although the market was full of other locally known brands of household soaps, extensive national advertising made it sell over the others. At various times during the years since, new kinds of soaps have been added to the P. G. family until now there are five widely advertised products. Sometimes Ivory Soap and Ivory Flakes are found in the same copy, but usually the P. G. products are ad- vertised independently of each other. All media are used but magazines most of all. Many business concerns depend for their prestige on their trademark. This is because a well-known trade-mark brings instant recognition of the prod- uct offered for sale. An unknown trade- mark is of no value, but one known to all inspires confidence in the heart of the prospective consumer. Very few trade-marks have gained wide-spread recognition without magazine advertis- ing. Needless to say, none have become famed without some type of advertising. Magazines are a very important source of advertisement. The most extensive user of magazine space for advertising purposes is the Campbell Soup Company which has used its trade-mark since 1899. Bon Ami, another well-known adver- tiser, has a twenty-five year old trade- mark. Practically all the advertising of Bon Ami is done in magazines. One of the pioneer advertisers of 1850, should he be suddenly confronted with a modern advertisement-filled newspa- per or magazine, would be astounded at this development of his one-time busi- ness. However, newspapers and maga- zines are but two of all the media for advertising. Movies, radios, street cars, sign-boards, demonstrations, aeroplanes and all kinds of printed matter have THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC I been utilized for this purpose.

Class isttu y Elizabeth Do you remember when you took his- tory that no matter what period, people, or nation you studied there was always a war? From the earliest day and na- tion to our own, struggle and conflict have been omnipresent. No people has ever existed without some semblance of war. And so it is in the history of the Class of 1929. In the war of life we have just completed our high school campaign. For most of us our military knowledge prior to this campaign was gained in the Stoneham training schools. In the new quarters erected in 1924 we spent two years under the careful training of our painstaking instructors, and thence we entered upon our first campaign — high school. Formerlj’’ this has extended over four years, but we are proud to have completed it in three. During the first year our division com- mander was Donald Whitehead; his chief aide, Bernice Wright. Colonels Victor Ferguson and James Montague were in charge of records and finance respectively. Major Eobert Sheehan, who was later transferred to the ranks of 1930, was in charge of morale. It was his duty to keep the soldiers light-heart- ed by social activities. Be it to his credit that one of the socials had the G. Durkee record crowd of the season. He was i greatly aided in keeping up the morale of the ranks by the many clever sayings of Colonels Skerrye and Eaton, members of Commander-in-Chief Watson’s Gen- eral Staff. The classical regiment, quartered in room 8, received a certificate of honor for 100% payment of A. A. dues for the year. At the close of the year, Zoa Newhall, Willard Decker, and Austin Patch received medals of honor for service on the athletic field. Zoa New- hall was also promoted to a captaincy for services on the basketball team. Clayton Wentworth, a member of our division, went south for further mili- tary training, returning the next year. Sad to state, beneficial effects are not in evidence. Toward the end of the year. Com- mander Whitehead left for new fields. In June good-byes were said to the de- parting 1927 divisions — you remember I there were two — and the first year of the campaign was over. In September 1927, the second offen- sive began. The new division com- mander was Eobert Eichardson; his as- sistant was Dorothy Wessell. Colonels Arline Parks and Edna Bergholtz were in charge of records and finance, which [81 GRADUATION NUMBER positions they held until the close of the campaign. Major James Montague was in charge of morale. He and his aides successfully ran the Junior Prom. In December General Richardson gave up his command and General Lawrence OLoughlin was appointed to succeed him. Many soldiers of the 1929 division took part in the annual operetta, “Pe- pita.’ Cynthia Bagdikian had the title role and as a result was kept busy all the rest of the year. Zoa Newhall, Wil- lard Decker, and Carl Hibbard also had principal parts. The regiment quartered in room 9 again won a certificate of honor for pay- ment of A. A. dues. During the year Dorothy Wessell, Joseph Lundregan, and Lawrence O’Loughlin were promoted to the rank of captain for athletic service. So, with good-bye to the 192S division, ended the second year of campaigning. The last year of the 1929 campaigners began wdth a flourish. General Robert Oppen headed the division with James Montague as his aide. The only other change in the staff was that Major Doro- thy Dodge was in charge of morale. Three of our division officers were made officers of the Athletic Associa- tion, Willard Decker, Dorothy Dodge, and Victor Ferguson. The 1929 divi- sion shone in the annual operetta. Of the fifteen principal parts, ten w ' ere held by division members, Cynthia Bagdikian again taking the title role. The big event of the season came with the Winter Carnival. All hostility ceas- ed while the Stoneham High army pro- ceeded to “make whooppce” as our Au- thentic’s Jester termed it. The divi- sion was proud to have one of its mem- bers, Dorothy Dodge, crowned queen of the Carnival, and many soldiers helped to win events for the old army. We must give credit to our commis- sary department — our doughnut bri- gade, headed by Colonel Marshall of the General Staff, ably assisted by Majors Fraser and O’Connor and some members of the 1929 division. In March many of the soldiers were grieved to hear of the sudden death of a former instructor in the training school, Victor M. Hetherstone. Mr. Hetherstone was always our friend and his memory lingers in many of our hearts. As spring came on, the last minute fighting became fast and furious. As victory became more certain, however. much action ceased. On May third a selected troui) of entertainers success- fully presented the play, “Ain’t It the Truth?” for the benefit of the division. A general cessation of hostilities oc- I curred on May 21, -when the all-impor- tant banquet took place with Hugh Hamill as the successful toastmaster. And so with the usual events of the closing daj’s, the first campaign of the j Class of 1929 came to an end. i But I must not complete this history without telling you more of the Depart- ment of War. Mr. Frederick W. Porter has been Secretary of War during this campaign, and he has certainly done his part to help us in every way possible. Now he is leaving with us for a new field of action, and we wdsh him success wholeheartedly. Our Commander-in-Chief, Howard W. Watson, has been, since he came at the beginning of the campaign, constantly on the lookout for our velfare. To him is due much credit for whatever success we may have had. We predict even greater success for him in his military movements now that he has a son on whom to practise. Among the members of Commander “Watson’s General Staff, two stand out clearly in our memory. One of these is also leaving to a greater campaign. We are very proud to have as a mem- ber of our ranks. Miss Vera Moore who, as our toastmaster remarked at the ban- quet, “Wilson be Moore no more.” The other, Mr. Earl T. Thibodeau, one of the best friends and teachers our army ever had, remains, “tenting on the old camp ground. We have not the heart to wish that he might go with us, for future campaigners will need his able guidance. And now, successful campaigners, we are leaving. We are no longer green troops but veteran soldiers. From the heights we have attained we are able to look ahead to new objectives. We are going on to the bigger battles, the bigger campaigns of this war of life. And if in them we acquit ourselves nobly — God grant that we shall — it will be because of the aid and experi- ence we have gained in our homes, our training camps, and our high school campaign. Thus I close the history of the first campaign of the Class of 1929 with gratitude for your help, and a hope for your continued friendship in the fu- ture. THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Ollass 1‘oplfecy In this year of 1950 many strange things occur and remarkable sights are seen. A recent personal experience of mine should prove of greatest interest to you and I submit the following ac- count without further apologies. The other night I lay on my radio heated bed and read from a book of poems a little before going to sleep. This book is one of the few collections that I ever read with real enjoyment. Suddenly I came upon a poem “Ode To a Daffodil.” I turned back to look at the author’s name. Sure enough there was the name, Victor Ferguson, author of “Spring and Other Famous Poems.” I lay there while my thoughts ran back to my school days and my old friends. My eyes grew heavy, and with these thoughts running through my mind I drifted off to sleep. How long I slumbered I do not know, but I awoke with the feeling that some- one was watching me. All was dark — the wind made a moaning noise, and an old bough creaked a weird accompani- ment outside my window. My curtains swished, and my windows rattled ever so ominously. Then I noticed my door open slowly and a bony hand was on the knob. My blood ran cold in my veins. Was I to be brutally murdered in my bed? Next an arm draped in white appeared, and then a ghostly form glided into the room. Halfway across the floor it stopped, and its hollow voice said, “Kise!” This word found me powerless to move, but my body seemed to answer its command without my consent. My senses were dormant as I glided towards my ghostly visitor and together we walked, or rather float- ed, down the dark corridor and out into the gloomy night. When we were out in the moonlight I recognized my ghostly companion. It was the spirit of the long dead 1929. I was no longer fright- ened. We started off on the most amazing trip I ever took and while on that trip with a spirit for my companion I saw many strange sights. We drifted along and suddenly I found myself in a theatre. There on the scr.een I heard and saw Lawrence OTLoughlin ardently proposing to “Dot” Dodge. They are now the famous screen lovers. Just then I noticed a trim usher with the form of an Adonis. Who do you suppose it was but Ernest Blanchard in danger of becoming hump backed from all his shiny brass. I should have spoken to him, but a re- straining talon was laid on my arm. Just as we arose to leave I noticed the programme said “Pat and Paddy.” Pat Pardue and Paddy Wentworth were now great vaudeville artists. Continuing our journey, I noticed a noble looking officer of the law who looked familiar. As we came closer, I recognized Dinny McKinnon who was following in his father’s footsteps. For Avhat seemed but a moment I lapsed into unconsciousness, and upon recovery I found my friend still by my side. We went in a strange city listen- ing to the strains of a popular opera. We entered a large auditorium and there upon the stage was Jimmie Govat- sos playing his violin as he had many times in the Assembly Hall of Stoneham High School. Next we heard the Silver Voiced Tenor sing a solo. This was none other than our old friend, Emory Clark, who was accompa nied on an ac- cordian by Melvin MacMillan. Leaving the city behind, we passed over the suburban section until we j came upon a strictly rural scene. Be- fore a neat bungalow were Joan and Lionel teaching a chip of the old block to walk. We left this scene and the next thing . I noticed was an aviation field. There was Olga Cunio standing before a large I passenger plane with her flying suit on. I A newspaper reporter was taking her I picture as she had recently returned from a distant flight. ! Over at the other end of the field I I saw Earle Kelley with a grease spot un- ' der one eye. He was trying to adjust the carburetor on his dilapidated plane. We again continued and as we passed a fashionable country club I saw a beautiful limousine near the drive. Near this stood Marjorie Houghton who is now a society matron, happily mar- ried. As we went on our way I noticed a larga barber shop and there I recog- ' nized Albert Anderson performing with a razor on a man whom I recognized as ■John Pitkerwich, now a rising plumber who seldom brings the right tools. GRADUATION NUMBER Leaving this scene and drifting on [ through space, I happened to notice a I small sport plane drawn up to a curb. As I looked, I saw a distinguished-look- ing gentleman escort a young lady from i the plane. I then recognized Roger I Sumner, a leading milk magnate, as the i man and the lady with him as Florence ; Rivers, a brilliant debutante of the I year. i Down the street we could see a poster i urging us to vote for Mayor Fredrick- son for re-election, and under it anoth- er asked us to contribute to the Fund ! for Homeless Pomeranians promoted by , Louise Wood. We again whizzed through space and ' soon I found myself in the suburbs of a beautiful little town, where I saw a sign on a store that said, “Tilton’s Gloucester Fish Market.” Near this building on an empty lot w’as a signboard advertising one of the popular books of the year, “My Love Affairs,” by Harvey Harris. In spite of this misleading title, Harvey is hap- pily married to Mary Hynes. The wind whistled by us and the ' ground whizzed by under our feet. Suddenly through the window of a house { I saw someone busy before an easel. Evidently this man was a painter. As we looked closer, we saw Dave Truesdale who was painting comic sheets for our ' amusement. i Just then we heard a loud cheering coming from afar. We went to the spot, and there we saw a parade coming down the street, displaying a sign that read “Hibbard’s Gigantic Circus.” There j we saw Peewee strutting proudly at the head. As the band came by, I recog- nized Benny Blaisdell blowing franti- cally into a brass horn. Then came the performers, and on the front wagon I saw Bill Decker throwing weights around. I noticed an unusual amount of applause from one section of the crowd, and looking down, beheld Phyllis Dodge. By the little gold band on her finger I supposed she was now Mrs. Strongman. Then came the end of the parade, and on one of the wagons I saw a sign that told us Winifred Hage- mann did her death defying tight rope act twice daily. With the passing of the parade, we . went on, and a short way down the street, I heard a loud barking. There we saw Mr. Brundage, the dog-catcher and frankfurt manufacturer, in the act of ensnaring an innocent victim. Our attention was next drawn to a man being soundly berated for failing to get in before curfew. George O’Brien, whose spouse was formerly Dot Mellett, said nothing but pulled out his paper and started to read. When he reached the sporting page, I saw that Bill Connors, the noted amateur sprin- ter, had recently turned pro. Another said that Hjalmar Widell was playing a no-error year, and that Jay Casey of the Braves hit three doubles and a homer in the last game. On the oppo- site page, I saw that the semi-finals for the British open championship were to be played off the next day, and favored to win were Hugh Hamill, John Connell, and Nick Baduvakis. Turning down the street, I noticed in a shop window a stunning gown. A placecard announced that the designer was Joe Lundregan. From a radio store a voice announced, “The next number will be ‘I Can’t Find a Sweetie’.” This brand new number was written by Marjorie Alley. When this plaintive melody ended, the voice said, “This is Mary Davis announcing; please stand by.” We did not stand by, but went on. Passing a restaurant, we saw a couple doing the enticing tango, and upon closer inspection, we found that these were Robert Oppen and Gladys Perry, now dancers of great renown. We left this scene, and soon I saw a sign that announced “Lane Bagdikian, Confectioners.” Under this a small sign said, “Don’t go elsewhere to be cheated; come here.” Upon approaching a large aero bus, parked on a corner, I saw Ernie Dear- born in a snappy conductor’s uniform. In the bus, a spinster was reading a magazine called “Love’s Pangs.” Her book lowered a second, and I caught a glimpse of Bernice Wright, much chang- ed from her high school days. A man and seven children entered with a terrific noise. A neighboring passenger said to the father, Bob Lud- den, “Say, mister, is this a picnic or are they all yours?” Then mama came down the aisle, and who do you suppose it was? Hazel Young! We next stopped before a platform where a man was giving a lecture on the evils of tobacco. The lecturer turned out to be John Dougherty. When his excellent speech was ended, we heard the strains of a melodeon, and discov- ered that the musician was our old THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC friend, Mary Driscoll. On the edge of the crowd a man was weeping dolefully. When asked what ' the trouble was, he said that he had spent most of his pay at the beach, and he was afraid that his better half, Mrs. Weiss, formeiLly Annabelle Dillon, would scold him. We left this gathering and stopped in front of a large building where a window sign read “Snell and Moody, Hair Waving a Specialty.” A few windows down another sign an- | nounced “E. Bergholtz, Fortune-Teller | Hypnotist.” I smiled as I thought of Edna making hocus-pocus. As we again passed on I felt a change in the air, and then I realized that we had left the city for the country. There in a field I saw a bus, with a sign on it reading, “TEACHEES’ EXCUESIONS.” Near this bus I spied someone reading a book on “Etymology.” When she lowered the book to adjust her glasses, I saw Elizabeth Moulton. Another per- son of my acquaintance was there. Ella Hovey was reading a book on “Biology” and giving her views on the preserva- tion of tadpoles. We soon came to a group of buildings that nestled near a lake. Here we saw a sign, “MISS ELDEIDGE’S GIELS’ CAMP,” and Phyllis teaching the girls the correct way to roll a hoop. Then down the road I saw a crowd of children coming. At the head of this young parade was Vera Harris. She is now a minister’s wife and was giving her little flock a picnic. After passing this happy group, I saw someone milking a cow. Just then the cow kicked the pail over, and the little dairymaid jumped up. Who do you suppose it was? Arline Parks, and the young lady who hurried to her aid was none other than Eleanor O’Brien. Then I felt the air rush past us as we traveled along at a swift pace. Soon we were over a small town. There on a bicycle sat a country constable watching for reckless speeders. When he turned our way I saw that this man with the alfalfa on his chin was none other than Walter Houston. I was in the city again and I could see the hazy smoke hajiging over it. Then I saw a night club. We went in and there I beheld Dot Eogers and Lois Detheridge resplendent in evening gowns, for they were the proprietors and hostesses of the best night club in the city. Over in one corner a crowd of girls were entertaining Austin Patch, who is now a movie producer. Then I saw the girls leave suddenly as across the floor stamped Zoa Newhall. She led Austin off by the ear. You can figure it out for yourself. We went out and as the pavements w hizzed by I saw Kuth Meagher through an open window of a large building. Ruth is now a telephone operator. Suddenly I saw a man being propelled down the street by a woman police of- ficer. This woman was no other than Dot Wessell. The man was violently protesting, “But officer it was my wife, I and she hit me first!” “I’m sorry, Mr. Huebner, but when I knew Laura Wood she was always very peaceful.” We followed these to the city hall and there on the bench sat Judge Hughes and pleading a case was the famous woman lawyer, Velma Murray. ' In the audience I saw Jeannette Miller writing notes on the case, for she is now a newspaper reporter. We went out of the court and there on the sidewalk a crowd was gathered. They had all come to get a glimpse of Beth Durkee, the tennis queen. She was accompanied by her very able man- ager, Helen Waterman. Again we whizzed off into space to a political meeting. There we saw and heard Helen Thornburg and Marion Hale debating as to whether or not the chop suey houses are a menace to our public welfare. We left this heated debate and next I found myself at the docks, where I saw Thelma Pickens selling round trip tickets to Coney Island. Just then Dick Wallace, now a taxi driver, stopped near us and opened the door for his passenger. Can it be? You, Amy Wood, and her protegee. Rose Dion. These, I learned from their con- versation, were going to Europe. ‘ Going up a flight of stairs, I saw George Dalimonte. The muscles on his brawny arms were as strong as iron bands. George was the owner of a fur- niture moving company and living up to our Class Motto— “Lift as You Climb.” j I was next urged by my companion to look at a huge building that was adorned with a sign “Rafferty’s Hospit- al.” Here our Mary tends the sick. Just then I saw Katherine Kirkpat- rick coming out of the front door. She • is now a full fledged nurse. Then I [ 12 ] GRADUATION NUMBER suddenly felt myself being rushed through space very swiftly. Suddenly j I ceased to travel. I was falling and I i heard the mocking laugh of my ghostly I companion as he left me. I tried to scream but I was unable. Not a sound left my lips, I closed my eyes and the ! bump came. When I opened them 1 1 was beside my bed. Was my past experience a reality or merely a dream? Where had I been? How long had I been gone? All this was unknown to me. I do know, how- ever, that somewhere these friends of mine are making good. |3r0pI|Erg cf tlie Carl E. After fifteen years of absence from my native land, I found myself leaning on the rail of a small tramp steamer, which was slowly nosing its way into New York harbor. My eyes were blur- red and a lump formed in my throat as we passed the Statue of Liberty. After docking and going through cus- tom formalities, I established myself ; at a hotel. Curious to see what changes { had taken place during my absence, I strolled up Broadway. As I walked, I noticed a great elec- tric sign ahead of me. The name on the sign seemed familiar, and I entered what I supposed was a theatre but which in reality was a large and perfectly ap- pointed ballroom. At the end of the room, opposite the entrance, was a large orchestra. As I approached it, the leader turned and Hibbard faced me. In a flash the name on the sign came back to me. It was Jimmie Montague, prophet of the Class of 1929 at Stoneham High School. After mutual greetings, he said, “We have a half hour before the program starts. Let’s talk” I learned that Jim- mie was the leader of the country’s finest orchestra and was proficient him- self at playing many musical instru- ments, especially the banjo. He also told me that he was married. “Libba and I will be giad to have you visit us,” he said. The buzz of a bell interrupted me. “There’s my warning,” said Jimmie. “Come up to the house tomorrow after- noon and we’ll have a great old talk.” “Sure, I’ll be there,” I said as I left him. Tomorrow had much in store for me. ' ast pitil artb Testament of tl|e (Class of 1329 We, the Class of 1929, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and twenty-nine, of the Stoneham High School, located at Stoneham, Massachu- setts, United States of America, West- ern Hemisphere, being in full and com- plete possession of our faculties of mind and body yet knowing the uncertainties of our lives, do hereby declare, assev- erate, and proclaim this document to be our last will and testament, and do dispose of our scholastic possessions as follows : Item I — We give and bequeath unto that famous czar of Room 13, Mr. Earle Thomas Thibodeau, our sincere sympa- thy in his present bereavement in losing not only the biggest, and brightest, and best class that ever graduated from S. H. S., but also “the bigger and better half” of the Moore-Thibodeau combina- tion. We wish him luck in recovering from these two shocks, — but seriously, may he never wholly forget us. Item II — We give unto our business home-room teacher. Miss Nesbit, the best of luck in her forthcomiiig years of teaching. We hope that she can maintain the strict silence in the future . that she has in the past, and cultivate dignified Seniors from the present Ju- I niors, a seemingly impossible task, j Item III — To our classical home- I room teacher. Miss Moore, most popular I of teachers, we do hereby bequeath our love and best wishes for a lifetime of i happiness, upon the sole condition that ! she share this bequest with one, Ernest I Wilson, in Jackman, Maine. May she ! always l ook back upon this year as one I of the happiest of her life because of the Class of 1929, and Ernest. It is our wish and desire : I — That Mr. Thibodeau be formally [ 13 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC appointed guardian of the Class stat- uary, namely, a robust pig The above named person is to remain guardian of the said statuary until the rightful heirs become of age on or after the fourth of September, in the year one thousand nine huundred and twenty-nine. He may then transfer the property to the would-be Seniors of 1930, if after thor- ough examination he finds no trace of insanity and judges them to be far enough from their former state of in- fancy to safely guard the aforenamed property. II — That those who are lucky enough to gain Room 12 as their final resting place, refrain from all unnecessary noise or spit-ball battles in honored remembrance of those who dwelt there before them. HI — To those who are lucky enough to hang their hat in the sacred room, Room 9, we bequeath these last wishes: 1. If the teacher bawls you out for something you haven’t done, don’t take offence, try not to do it again. 2. Keep in mind that the former in- habitants of that room always held their desks in high esteem. 3. Never hit your neighbor with an eraser ; use a book, it hurts more. 4. And, lastly, every morning at 8.10 remain quiet for 1 minutes in re- membrance of the ones who have gone before you. -3 In witness whereof, we, the Class of 1929, the testators of this, our last Will and Testament, set our hand and seal on this fourteenth day of June, in the year ' of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred, and twenty-nine.

Stoneham High Wallops Reading in League Game, 12 to 0 The Stoneham High School baseball team strengthened its lead in the Mid- dlesex League, last Saturday afternoon, defeating the Reading High aggregation before the largest crowd of the season at the Pomeworth Street grounds; 12 toO. The local team pounded two Reading tAvirlers for fifteen bingles while the visitors were only able to gather four scattered hits from the offerings of Theroux and Dearborn. Stoneham has only one remaining league game to play and a victory at Reading next Wednesday will give it the Middlesex League championship. Theroux had little trouble retiring the Reading batters in the opening frame while his teammates collected three runs after Widell reached first safely on error and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Dushane drew a base on balls and Widell was out at the plate attempting to score on Marston’s infield hit. Captain Adzigian poled out a home run into left field, driving in two run- ners before him to put the home team in the lead. Stoneham added one more in the second on a single and stolen base by Hughes, advanced to third on an infield out and came home when Cor- coran got a life on Brown’s misplay. [ 19 ] Widell 3b THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC The local boys drove home two more in the third inning on a single and stolen base by Adzigian, single by Lundregan, and Kent’s “life” on Brown’s error. Corcoran started the fourth, reaching | safely on Brown’s second error, but was I out stealing. Dushane started the I fireworks over again with a single and I came home on Marston’s crashing ! a three bagger to end the scoring for | the inning. Stoneham continued the I bombardment in the sixth inning, push- j ing across two more markers on another single by Dushane, base on balls to | Marston, and Adzigiau and Lun- dregan’s sizzling single to centerfield. { The Stoneham boys drove across three ! more tallies in the eighth frame on sin- j gles by Adzigian, Dearborn, Kent, The- 1 roux, Widell and a base on balls. Capt. j Adzigian was the big sticker of the con- test, collecting three hits in three trips | to the plate, including a home run. ! Lundregan, Kent, Marston, and Dushane I also hit the ball hard for the locals ; while Pierpont was outstanding for the ' visitors. The pitching of Theroux and ' Dearborn for Stoneham was also an im- i portant factor in the local victory, coup- i led with the Stoneham team’s defensive i plaj The summary: ■ Stoneham ab bh po a Widell 3b 5 1 4 5 Corcoran If 5 1 0 0 A.

Stoneham High Noses Out Arlington, 5 to 4 The Stoneham High School baseball team continued its winning streak on Wednesday afternoon, defeating the Ar- lington High nine at the latter’s dia- mond, 5 to 4 Theroux was the big noise of the Stoneham victory. He allowed but three hits and batted and fielded bril- liantly. The Stoneham team committed six errors during the fray and these er- rors allowed Arlington to score the majority of its runs while the local boys hit the ball hard in the pinches to score its runs. Stoneham took the lead in the second frame when Captain Adzigian singled and stole second. Kent scored “Adzie” when Lane made a slow play to first base. The local boys added another in tlie third inning when Theroux opened with a single to centerfield and was sac- I rificed by Corcoran. A timely single I by Dushane scored the second run of the game. Stoneham pushed across I another marker in the fourth on singles I by Marston, Kent and Hughes. Arlington drove one run in the fourth on two singles and a stolen base. The Spy Ponders came within one run of I the visitors, scoring another in the i sixth frame on a base on balls, sacrifice, and Abbott’s second hit of the game. Stoneham put the game on ice in the I seventh inning, driving across two runs ■ on a single by Hughes, a sacrifice by ■ Theroux, and successive singles by Wi- dell and Dushane. The Mystic Valley Leaguers came back to score one run in their half of the seventh on a base on balls and two errors by the Stoneham team. Arlington scored the final run I of the game in the eighth inning on a base on balls, stolen base, and two er- rors by the Middlesex Leaguers. A double play, Theroux to Kent to Du- I Shane, stopped Arlington’s potential ! rally. GRADUATION NUMBER Theroux, Stoneham’s southpaw ace, allowed but three scattered hits and this game marked Theroux’s second three hit game of the year, excluding a one hit game against Concord. Hughes and George Dushane were the big stickers for Stoneham, collecting three and two hits, respectively. Stoneham High Swamps Lexington, 12-4 The Stoneham High nine went into a tie for top place in the Middlesex League, Wednesday afternoon. May 15, defeating the Lexington High aggrega- tion at the Lexington High diamond, 12 to 4. Dearborn, on the mound for Stoneham, pitched masterly ball, allowing the Lexington batters but five scattered hits, while his teammates gave him brilliant support. Stoneham put the game on ice in the opening frame, scoring six runs. Wi- ! dell, the first batter, was hit by a pitch- | ed ball and Corcoran reached safely on a sacrifice error. Dushane reached first i on another error and one run crossed the plate. With two men on, Marston hit a home run into deep right field, scoring two runners ahead of him. Adzigian was given a free ticket to first base, stole second and scored on Lundre- gan’s single. Lundregan scored on 1 Hughes’ sacrifice to end the rampage for { the inning. Stoneham added another in ! the second after Widell doubled, ad- j vanced to third on a fielder’s choice, and | tallied on Dushane’s sacrifice. I The visitors added one more in the third on a base on balls, stolen base and error. Lexington came back with two runs in the fourth frame on a base on balls, triple and single. The home team drove one run across in the fifth when the first batter was hit by a pitched ball, advanced on a fielder’s choice, and scored on an error. I Stoneham continued the onslaught in the seventh inning, driving across three runs on a single, a stolen base by Lun- dregan, single by Kent, sacrifice by Hughes, double by Widell and Corco- ran’s single. The Stoneham boys banged out twelve ! safeties while Dearborn held the Lex- ington batters with five hits. Lundre- } gan, Marstoji and Hughes were the big | noise with the stick for Sioneham, while the fielding of Adzigian, Dushane, and Kent featured. Marston’s home run, coupled with Britt’s triple were the longest hits of the season. The summary: Stoneham ab bh po a Widell 3b 5 2 5 3 Corcoran If 1 1 2 0 A.

Stoneham 7 — Concord 0 Batting and fielding behind the mas- terly pitching of “Art” Theroux, who held the Concord High batsmen to one scratch hit, the Stoneham High nine had little difficulty in defeating Concord High at the Pomeworth Street grounds, Saturday, April 27, 7 to 0. A scratch hit by McCarthy, Concord catcher, in the second inning, prevented Theroux from a no-hit-no-run game. Not only did Theroux hold the visitors to a lone bingle, but fanned ten oppo- nents. He accomplished a feat that no [ 21 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Stoneham pitcher has done since the days of “Doc” Harris. Stoneham opened the scoring in the second inning when “Bed” Marston connected fo r a double across the road. “Bed” scored on the next play when Captain Adzigian’s hot grounder went through the second baseman. “Adzie” continued on to second when Concord made a play at the plate. Lundregan sent Adzigian home with the second run on his infield out, which completed the scoring for the inning. Stoneham added three more runs in the third frame. Widell opened the in- ning with a single and advanced on “Sonny” Doherty’s sacrifice. Kent, Marston, and Adzigian reached safely on miscues by the Concord infield, and “Joe” Lundregan cleaned the sacks with a clean double to left center. The local boys continued the bom- bardment in the fourth inning, chalk- ing up two more markers after “Vinny” Hughes opened the inning with a safe drive to center field and stole second base. “Sonny” Doherty worked Flan- nery for a base on balls, and Hughes went to third on Widell’s sacrifice fly to right field. “Al” Kent crashed a double over the center fielder’s head, scoring Hughes and Doherty. Westby relieved Flannery in the sixth inning and held Stoneham batters for the remainder of the game. Theroux held the Concord batters in check throughout the fray and only one oppo- nent reached second base throughout the game — that was in the eighth in- ning when he had a temporary wild spell and passed two batters. “Vinny” Hughes was the outstanding batter for Stoneham, collecting two singles in three trips to the plate while Marston, Kent, and Lundregan connect- ed for two ply wallops.

Concord’s Eighth Inning Rally Beats Stoneham Concord High turned the tables on the local nine at its own field, last Friday, Maj ' - 10, when it scored four runs in the eighth frame, winning 7 to 4. Up to that time, the game was a pitcher’s battle between Theroux and Westby. Stoneham got first blood in the second when Lundregan scored from second on Dushane’s single. Concord tied it up in the same inning after a single and two infield errors and took the lead in the next frame on a single, stolen base and error. Stoneham pushed across two runs in the sixth inning to take the lead once more. Corcoran reached first on an er- ror and advanced on Kent’s sacrifice while Marston was given a life on Pres- ci ' tfs fumble. With men on second and third, a timely bingle by “Joe” Lun- dregan sent two runs across. Concord tied the score in its half of the sixth on an error and two singles. A double play by the Stoneham infield pulled Theroux out of further trouble. Concord salted the game away in the eighth inning, scoring four runs on three errors by the ' Stoneham infield, a base on balls, and a timely double by Westby. Stoneham came back in the ninth to score one run on two bases on balls, and a single by Dushane. The summary: [ 22 ] GRADUATION NUMBER Cunningham 3b Concord ab bh po 3 0 1 Stoneham, 6 to 3 A ninth inning rally by the Wakefield High baseball team beat the Stoneham High nine in the opening game of the season at the Pomeworth Street grounds, 6 to 3. Both teams were staging a nip and tuck battle until the ninth frame when Wakefield pushed three runs across the plate to win the ball game. Almost every inning Stoneham had men on the sacks but failed to hit in the pinches while Wakefield bunched their hits for all its runs. With the score tied three all at the beginning of the ninth inning, Hubbard, the first Wakefield batter, was passed, Lewis sent him along with a bunt and Cotter sin- gled. Doyle beat out a slow roller and Ball doubled to score three runs and win the ball game. Dearborn relieved Theroux in the box for Stoneham in the sixth inning and was not as effective as the latter.

[ 23 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Five short years have rolled by much faster than we ever expected. Very few take a look back into the past but some of us are subject to this weakness. We think back to Friday the thirteenth of June in the year of nineteen hundred and twenty-four when we were to be made alumni and world-conquerors. We were kings for the day. On Saturday the fourteenth we expected the world to turn over and stare at us, we who were to make the world hum. Yet in a day we forgot those things and returned to normal, as most human beings do. To work, to play, to school we departed and a new life was born for us. There was little wavering or sidestepping, but much thinking. We had to shift a bit for ourselves, take a few knocks and perhaps look ahead a bit more than was our custom herebefore. And now the world has marked five years more to our credit and our view of life has changed, some radically, some not so much. A few of us like to look back and think while the great majority must be stirred up to do so. However, prophecies are less, while facts are more established, and we wish to here relate what has happened to mem- bers of the Class of 1924 in five years of world-conquering. Perhaps a bit of explanation is neces- sary. A questionnaire was sent to ev- eryone of the fifty-nine of us who grad- uated on that historic date. Fifty per cent answered the roll, the others had to be urged. Another urge was sent out and about fifty per cent of them re- plied. The last quarter of the class has not responded, expectedly so. However, it is our desire to record everyone of our classmates here so we take from rumor that last twenty-five per cent and record their names here with only what we have heard and not what they themselves have told us. Marie Young, still residing at home, 54 Marble Street, is a private secretary, a good one we should say. Marion Wallace, also living at home, 11 Lincoln Street, is now working for the Edward Caldwell Company on Franklin Street. She’s been with John Hancock Life Insurance Company for three years and one year with the Atlas Plywood Corporation. She’s engaged to our other classmate, Henry Earl Leavitt. Eric Williams is as faithful as ever. He traipses daily to work in the ship- ping department of E. L. Patch Com- panj and back home at 23 Surnmerhill Street. For a time he was engaged with the Heywood-Wakefield Company. “Glad to hear from you, classmate of ’24”, he says. “Those were the happy days — little did we realize it. How- ever, we shall always remember them, though we live to 2024.” That ' s pretty good! Then there is Ruth Massey who is at home, 34 Lincoln Street, and spending the summer at Harwichport, Mass., Box 345 address. She tried two years of Mount Holyoke College but went no further. We were thinking of reunions and perhaps this will give an idea to other classes w’ho think of it too. She hits the nail on the head when she says, “I think reunions are apt to be disil- lusioning and therefore disappointing to those who are interested enough to spend time and thought in planning them.” So very true. Leon White, 8 Pine Street, went to work at the Pacific Mills, Lawrence, af- ter leaving high school, to finish the Avork Miss McPherson started him upon, that of learning chemistry. He has specialized in chemistry of dyestuffs and is still at it. Florence Thompson, now Mrs. Frank W. Jackson, is a housewife at 24 Pleas- ant Street. She was employed by the Boston and Maine for a year and a half after graduation and then married one of our class who could not finish because of the death of his father. They are happily blessed with two sons, Frank W., Jr., aged 3 years and a half, and GRADUATION NUMBER Richard Earle, a year and a half old. Ruth Rayner, 111 Spring Street, start- ed working at the E. L. Patch Company in October, 1924, and is now a secretary there. She seems to like it as she’s neither engaged or married. Geraldine E, Drew of 20 Oak Street is a private secretary. She did one year in Fisher Business College, then tried three years with Rumford Baking Pow- der Company of Providence and settled into her present position January 1st of this year. She is in an attorney’s office and the work is so interesting she hopes to take up law next year. Randall Moulton tried clerking it for a year with Brown Durrell Company then switched over to bookkeeping for the First National Bank of Boston for three years. But he always liked his outdoor work so he’s now tied up with the Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Entomology, Plant Quarantine and Control. He walks the woods wherever he happens to be stationed and is fast becoming an expert in this work. His permanent mail address is 22 Pond Street, but he’s wandering anyv here be- tween the Canadian Border and the Na- tional Capitol as far as we can find out. Margaret Patch, after four years of Mt. Holyoke and a year of Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School, besides spend- ing her summer as nature councilor at Pine Knoll Camp, Conway, N. H., is now assured of a position with the physio- logical department of Harvard. She is now recuperating from her hard work at home, 47 Lindenwood Road. Our classmate, Elizabeth Johnson, is now Mrs. Mason, married March 2, 1927, to Walter Plummer Mason, and residing at 4 Parkway She spent two years at Framingham ? ormal taking the House- hold Arts Course, one year at home and two married years. Two children oc- cupy most of Elizabeth’s time, Pauline Elizabeth, aged 14 months, and Dorothy Florence, about two months now. Henry Leavitt is living up to all ex- pectations by following out his pre- meditated course of action, that of be- coming a doctor. He is located at 2041 Green Street, Philadelphia, although his exams over, Stoneham has called him hither for the summer. You will re- member he’s engaged to Marian Wallace. He worked for the Lovell-Hall Company of Cambridge, 1924-25, then went to Lunenberg, Vermont, for a year on the farm. Next he took a year of Massa- chusetts Osteopathic College, followed by a year in the local office of the Ed- ison Electric Illuminatiiig Company; but now he’s sta- ' .ted his four year course at the Philadelphia College of Osteop- athy. He expects to take up post grad- uate W ' oik in surgery and obstetrics at Johns Hopkins University and then come back to good old Massachusetts and s ' ttle downi. Good for you, Henry! Hollis Goode’s home is now in Win- I Chester, 14 Cross Street. He tried a I year o?i a boat after graduation but I finally wandered back to New Hamp- j shire and wall graduate this June with I a B. S. degree in Chemistry. He has ac- cepted a position in South America. It does our hearts good to see the hard- working football player make good like this. Camille DeAngelis resides at 16 Man- ! ison Street. She is an artiste reception- ist with Yantine’s Studio, 160 Boylston { Street, Boston. She has studied Span- ish and Italian with Dr. Antonio Del Compo of Spain who is with the Har- vard School of Public Health. She ' hopes to study photographic studio work in Rome, Italy, with an American pho- , tographer, although the future is uncer- tain with her as with so many of us. Rajmiond Buck is happily married to 1 Ethel M. Cogan, the ceremonies taking ! place June 16, 1928. He is a filling sta- I tion proprietor, the station being lo- j cated on the Stoneham-Reading road. He lives at 18 Hersam Street and has one child, Ruth Marie Buck, aged three months.

McPherson of I Medford a year and a half, she has now I settled down to a happy married life. I Little Pasquale DeMartino of 72 I Franklin Street has been timekeeper, I laundry worker and in the cutting room of the shoe shop but his ambition is to j be a Certified Public Accountant. Here’s I wishing him luck. I John Martin Devlin, 62 Maple Street, ! as briefly as ever, removes the cigar for I a moment to say, “I’m a plumber from I the School of Hard Knocks” And he : drives off in his new Ford roadster to take care of a job. But rumor has told [ 25 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC us John is a mighty good man at the ’ job. ! Norma Andrews lives at 56 Lawrence ; Street, Danvers, Mass She has lived | five years in the business world, four in Boston and is now secretary-stenograph- ; er. She says of the future, “I have . learned to expect nothing, so that I may not be disappointed!” That’s good philosophy, too! John Scanlon, living at 57 Stevens Street, is a Bridge Designer and Drafts- | man. He graduated f rom the structural ' engineering courses at the Franklin i Foundation and at Lowell Institute, M. ; I. T. A couple of years with Stone i Webster in the drafting division intro- ' duced him to his present job with the ' B. M. E. E. desiging and drafting i steel bridges and he intends to stick to , structural engineering. Hope he takes i the flat wheels off the cars, too. He’s j engaged to Miss Bernice Doucette of | Heading. It happened in May, 1929, so j guess Johnny is all set for the rest of his life. Francis Eafferty, 20 Wright Street, is also a plumber. He took three years of evening school at Wentworth insti- tute, and then one year at Franklin Union evening school. Anne Hamill, 40 Wright Street, is a stenographer. She briefly states her work during the past five years as Bur- dett College and Y. M. C. A. Judson Whitehead is the big business man of our class. He’s located at the Buffalo Athletic Club at present, al- though he has addresses in Boston and New York City. He’s working for his father’s business of metal distribution and he’s made good, no end. He spent four years at Dartmouth to get a B. S. degree but he really didn’t need it for he made good on the road with his ability as it was demonstrated in the Webster Debating Society of old. Florence Kelly also has done espec- ially well. She took the preliminary hospital course at Simmons College 1924-25 and then trained at N. E. Dea- coness Hospital of Boston for three years. In 1923 she was appointed su- pervisor there, a very responsible posi- tion, and then followed her folks south to do private nursing in North Carolina and Florida. She has just announced her engagement, June 1st, to Frederic W. Fudge, whom you will all remember as in the Class of ’22. Her mail ad- dress is 15 Deaconess Eoad, Boston. Gerald Eyan only spent his senior year with us but we all remember him as one fine boy. He’s living at 4241 By- ron Avenue, Bronx, N. Y. C. Engaged to Helen Lally, 8 Sargent Eoad, Win- chester, this brings him to the vicinity of Stoneham once in a great while. He’s had a varied career, Bentley School for C. P. A. work nights, construction work and excavation work. He’s now an engineer and expects to go into con- tracting with his father in New York. Katherine Owen, 114 Summer Street, is a secretary. She’s been with the Bond Department of Hinckley Woods, and has tried Bryant Stratton. She also mentions “Speed Boat”, Lake Winne- pesaukee, which we know is a good place to be. ' Norman J. Pierce, our technical stu- dent is graduating this year from the University of N. H., having majored in Electrical Engineering, his first love. He is President of U. N. H. Branch of American Institute of Electrical Engi- neers and has had summer employment with the Wireless Specialty Apparatus Co. of Boston. He will be located in New York City after September 9 as an E. E. with the N. Y. Telephone Com- pany. Intentions are to do graduate work next year in the big city with hopes of getting into Bell Telephone Laboratories eventually, which would be heaven for Norm. He may be addressed at Phi Delta Upsilon House, Durham, New Hampshire. Albert Melley is in the grain business at 352 Main Street. He believes in hard work which is the best thing in the world. Al’s been at it since graduation. Thelma Alward is stenographer to the Service Manager, Jordan Marsh Com- pany. She lives at 329 Main Street, Melrose. Bryant Stratton claimed her for a year, then O’Brion, Eussell In- surance Company for two years, then an advertising concern and with Jordan Marsh since September, 1928. Hilda Frost, 86 Hancock Street, is a stenographer-bookkeeper. She’s held down various positions with different concerns but sticks to the same line of work. As we understand it now she is with the Stevens Linen Works of Bos- ton. Jessie Powers, 9 Prospect Street, was four years with Boston Consolidated Gas Company as bookkeeper and now she’s in the local office of the M. M. Gas Light Company. A bookkeeper she says, but we’ve heard her giving orders, too. Johnny Cahill took a B. A. from Bos- [ 26 ] GRADUATION NUMBER ton College in June of ’28 and has since been employed in the local post office as clerk. He’s living at 33 Warren Street. Future plans are impossible to relate according to John, though he wants to teach. Edna Brodeen, 33 Broadway, received a B. S. from Simmons and has since been with Chase Securities Corporation and Parker Corporation. ! Fred Turner is happily married and ; has a position with Filene’s as clerk, j He married July 29, 1928, Miss Gertrude | Surette, of Reading, and they are now | living at 3 Lake Avenue, Wakefield, j Kenneth Rice, 13 Warren Street, grad- ! uates from Lowell Tech this year and i in between times he’s been working for j Jenny Mfg. Co. He was so busy with j exams he couldn’t say much, and now ' he’s busy again. He married Alice ! Ewing, Saturday, June 8th, and is now I on his honeymoon. He then goes to | Akron, Ohio, with a tire company for ' three months. Marion Saxby is another employee of the B. M. R. R. as typist and machine : operator. She has taken courses in : business and comptometer operating | with Bryant Stratton and Manchester School of Commerce. Before employ- ment with the B. M. she was associat- ed with the Heywood- Wakefield Com- pany and the Tubular Rivet and Stud Company of Boston. She lives on East- view Terrace. Grace Frost, 86 Hancock Street, is a bookkeeper in William W. Babcock Co., | Construction Mortgages and Insurance. She lives at home. | Elwyn Gay, 469 Main Street, is a | chauffeur. He hasn’t much to say but : chauffeurs are never loquacious. Marjorie Young, 33 Chestnut Street, ’ is a secretary in an investment house in Boston. She graduate d from Welles- ley College ’28, and Katharine Gibbs Secretarial School, ’29. Engaged her- self to Stuart Duane Lyon, New York City, a Harvard ’28 man. Alice McCall, 82 Summer Street, is em- ployed as a clerk by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., Wakefield office, and has been there for five years. Catherine Wardwell, 52 High Street, is a secretary in the offices of Flye, Gravill, Buttrick and James, attorneys. She attended Chandler Secretarial School and has worked for the Armour Grain Co. and Atlantic Refining Co. as well as for her father. Joseph Masi, 223 Fulton Street, Med- ford, is a tile contractor. He attended Northeastern Night School four years and Franklin Union two years. He started in business for himself after leaving school and has continued in that capacity since. He has established a business employing five men at the present time and keeps busy according to reports He’s another who has strayed from the path, becoming engag- ed to Miss Dorothy Redmond of Lynn on February 22nd of this year. Louise Pickens, 45 Stevens Street, is a multigraph-typist for the Converse Rubber Co. She only has to say for herself that she has gained 50 pounds and is no taller. Well that’s something, we should say. Robert Harrington, 3 Moulton Avenue, is an engineer with the N. E. Tel. Tel. Co. He’s been to engineering school at Tufts as well as being associated with other technical companies. He and Norm Pierce certainly team up well in that line. Lawrence Carter, 107 Franklin Street, has been one year with the American Trust Co., two years with the Boston Stock Exchange and one year traveling New England. He must stick to work out-of-doors so he’s going on the road again, he expects. “One never can tell,” says Kitty. Eugene Rotundi, at the last moment, gets an interesting letter in to us. He’s at home, Franklin Street, in the contracting business with his father and brother Charlie of ’25 fame. They em- ployed forty-five men last year, built a state road in 1928 and expect to repeat this year with more business. His weakness is the opposite sex so he’s keeping busy night and day. Helena Markham, 35 Lincoln Street, is a private tutor. She graduated from Framingham and has taught at Standish Manor, Halifax, Mass. Rumor tells us that she is with a private family in Reading at present. This completes the list of those we have heard from. As to the rest, it is just what we can gather from those who know. Campbell deGruchy has been chauf- feur for Dr. Sheehan for about four years we should guess. Anna Dewhurst is teaching school in Providence, R. I., kindergarten, we be- lieve. Joseph Fallon is still in Boston Col- lege, although we see him around town. Herbert Longmore is married and [ 27 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC lives in Wakefield. Harold MacAnanny is married and lives in. Worcester. Eldred Patch went two years to Dart- mouth and then transferred to Massa- chusetts Agricultural College. Played some hockey according to the papers. George Eiley is now in the insurance game, although he’s tried several things including a little bit of law. We’ve heard him speak at town meetings. Dorothy Green confesses that she is working “in town”, meaning Boston, but fails to say where. Edith Ewing was working in the box factory, Wakefield, according to the la- test reports. Olive Goudey is employed by the Edi- son Electric Illuminating Co. of Boston. Mildred Krohn is with John Hancock Life Insurance Co. of Boston. As to mj ' self, Dick Barnstead, four years of Dartmouth for a B. S. and one year with the Stoneham Independent have convinced me that law is my fu- ture, so I enter Harvard Law for three years of work this fall. And there you have the class of 1924, as completely as we could get them under the circumstances. I might say a word for the benefit of those of the class who read this. Only three of the forty-seven felt that they did not want a reunion, the remainder were heartily in favor. However, it is a very hard thing to organize. The time to hold one is on the evening of Saturday, June 15th, but that is here already. Perhaps I one might be held in the fall, but it I would take much work to find out just who could be there and those who could not attend. The class of ’24 takes a bow and steps into oblivion as a unit. Its individual members may be seen now and then, ! but the rest remains only as a memory, or the form of a picture hung on the wall. May the future bring you all good luck. And to the graduating class of 1929, best wishes for success and a future of happiness. Adieu, for aye.

Thibodeau “Say, did you hear of the new math course?” “No!” “They put the answers on the board and tell you to make up the problem.” These last few days everyone is washing us Seniors the best of luck in our future life work. Well, how about Miss Moore and Mr. Porter? Didn’t they say they were graduating too? Give them a little sob story about the fact that they’re having the best time of their young lives now. Oh, and don’t forget, “If you only knew it.” We hear a poor little Soph-o-more was drowned the other day. He was a good swdmmer, but his boat upset in a lake v;here there was no swimming allowed. Recipe for ’29’s Success We always laugh at teacher’s jokes, No matter what they be. And not because they’re funny. But because it’s policy. CLASS NOTES 1929 The Senior Class held its banquet on ' the evening of May 21, at the Hotel | Kenmore. A large per cent of the class ; were present, and the affair was a great | success. Scotch Hamill, the toastmaster, kept us entertained, and introduced the j speakers very cleverly, both in song (?) j and poetry. The speakers of the even- j ing were: Me. Nadeau, Mr. Watson, Mr. Porter, Miss Vera Moore, Mr. Earle T. [ Thibodeau, Miss Poland, and last but I not least was our own Mr. Gordon. The ! student speakers were Dorothy Wessell and Joseph Lundregan, and, of course. Bob. Mr. Gordon spoke on “Romance” and I’rn sure his speech caused no little discussion — and in a different way than it was meant. We’ll try and broaden out romance for you, Mr. Gordon, and on the athletic field as well. You must have rehearsed your speech to Miss Moore, Miss Poland, and Miss French prematurely. Pictures, pictures, everywhere, and not a one to be had. This really seems to be the true state of affairs, for al- though one sees pictures floating around E. T. T.: If you weren’t talking, Hib- bard, you were listening to Pierce. C. H.; Well, I can’t button my ears! E. T. T.: All right, take twenty min- utes to study it. E. T. T. (after twenty minutes:: Studied it? Any Senior Class the last two weeks of school: Studied what? We wonder if Mr. Alden also prefers “Home Thoughts From Abroad” to any of Browning’s poems? The Senior Class is informed by their own teacher advisor, that they can work out their own salvation. Where’s the school a’goin’. And what’s it gonna do. And how’s it gonna do it. When we Seniors all get through? We, the Class of 1929, of the Stone- ham High School, take this opportunity to bid adieu to the rest of the High School. We wish them the best of luck, and as much success in their undertak- ings as we have had in ours. And so, we say au revoir — but not goodby. Dear Marie: If I had you under the Carolina moon. [ 29 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC sweetheart of all my dreams, my black- birds would be bluebirds now. Gee, honey, now I can forget Ramona, Louise, Billie, and all the girls, although I know they will cry, “Lover, come back to me.” Say, kid, you’re the cream in my coffee and the inspiration of the song I love. Every time I think of you there’s a rain- bow round my shoulder. Whoopee, the sun is at my window throwing kisses at me. You made me what I am today, and together, beloved, we’ll be happy in my blue heaven. I’m sitting on top of the world and too busy to feed hungry women, because I love you. Y ou know j you v cre meant for me, and when I’m i all alone back in my own back yard I’ll | be thinking of you. So let me call you j sweetheart, girl of my dreams. As you 1 know, wedding-bells are breaking up that old gang of mine; and I want to j build a nest for Mary. With that prec- i ious little thing called love we’ll go to i Sleepy Valley where you can meet my j Mammy. That is where the shy little ; violets grow, and in years to come we’ll have a little Sonny Boy who will be mighty lak a rose. We’ll send him to a southern college where he can pick cot- ton, do the raccoon and the Varsity Drag and walk with his sweetheart down among the sugar cane. I could be king for a day. Precious, but it all depends on you. To know you is to love you, and you’re mean to me, but some of these days I’ll tell the world I want to be happy. My inspiration is 3 ' ou; I treasured you, but now I’m; broken-hearted. I’m still in love with you, but I’m jealous of somebody else; so I’m ready for the river. That’s just my way of forgetting you. I’ll get by, but what does it matter? Some sweet day we’ll build a log cabin of dreams at the water’s edge, where we’ll let the rest of the world roll by. The Boy Friend. H. H. ’29. 1930 It is strange or perhaps not so strange that during the last quarter the Juniors have been lacking in their class jokes. (We can refer you to the Sophomores, ; however, as it is rumored that there are a large number there.) It has been said that we Juniors, realizing our rapidly approaching responsibilities of becom- ing Seniors, are becoming more zealous in our task. This must be true for we certainly wish to become the best Se- niors that ever held sway in the high school. Reviewing our past year we have con- cluded, not egotistically however, that the Juniors have had a most profitable year. All our school activities have been suijcessful, while the school ath- letic activities have been greatly sup- ported by members of our class. Most of our few soealled “wisecracks” have been supplied by our teachers. The following are examples of this type. E. B.: “How do you spell egotisti- cally?” j Ir. Davis: “E-G-0- period.” Mr. Gordon : “What’s the action of sulphuric acid?” A. T.: “Makes little holes.” INIr. Gordon : “Like a woodpecker, you mean ?” 1931 It won’t be long now before we’ll take a great step and become Juniors and we hope that the class of ’30 can set as fine an example for us as we will for the coming Sophs. The Sophomores are proud of having two three-letter men in their class and we compliment “Al” Kent and “Molly” Adzigian for their work in football, basketball and baseball. We sincerely hope that our class friend. Miss Moore, will happily con- tinue on the sea of matrimony. We casually mention that certain j Sophomores don’t stand quite so un- favorably with certain Seniors as one ; might suspect. ' We send our best regards to the grad- ! uates, and wish them the best of suc- ! cess. j Pat had a limited knowledge of the : bird kingdom. One day, while he was I walking dowm the street, he noticed a I green bird in a cage, talking and sing- ing. Thinking to pet it he stroked its head. The bird turned quickly, scream- ing: “Hello! What do you want?” Pat shied off like a frightened horse, lifting his hat and bowing politely as he stuttered out: “Excuse me, s-sir, I thought you was a birrd!” “Cosette, your lips are like rubies.” “Well! So it’s Ruby you were kiss- ing last night.” [ 30 ] JUNIOR HIGH ASSEMBLIES The Junior High this year has cer- tainly had some fine assemblies to start things off right in preparation for Se- nior High. The first one was a play by the his- tory class coached by Miss Pickering. Room 31 was the next to show their talents. Lewds Parks was in charge of this assembly. Alma Patch and Dorothy Corcoran w ' ere others on this program. The next week Room 35 presented a fine assembly which was in charge of Richard Hunt, Pauline Miller, Gertrude French, William Jones, and Priscilla Marsh also took part in this program. Room 32 presented a play under the direction of Miss Devlin. Only the 7th and 8th grades attended this. The next room to present an assembly was Room 36. This program, in charge of Nora Bagdikian, was. very well plan- ned. Helen Brown, Jean Quincy, Mu- riel Berry and Charles Frost also took part. Then came the assembly of assem- blies, the annual Memorial Day ser- vices. Because of the necessary amount of room, it was held in the Armory. This fine program was entirely arrang- ed by Miss Devlin and Mr. Whittemore. Many thanks should be theirs. As the pupils entered the door, they passfid under an arch of flags, each room being represented. As the Army veter- ans entered, the entire assembly gave them a wonderful ovation. The program was in charge of Rich- ard Hunt. The sixth grade introduced the Grand Army veterans by singing “Tenting Tonight.” Mr. Watson gave a word of welcome on behalf of the school and asked Comrade Davis of the G. A. R. to speak. Vice Commander Davis stressed the point of love for country and flag. The Spanish War Veterans were in- troduced by the singing of “Dolly Gray.” Mr. Watson introduced Commander Wil- son who related an outline of the Span- ish war. He told of th.e many difficul- ties which faced the boys of 98. He thanked the school for extending the invitation to have him speak. “Keep the Home Fires Burning” in- troduced the World War Veterans. Com- mander Saxby spoke of “What Does Me- morial Day Mean to You?” He explain- ed his view of this and no one in the assembly disagreed wdt hhim. Six girls representing the Junior High spoke on the theme, “Honor and Duty To Our Country.” Helen Lister, trum- petist, played a group of songs, ac- companied by Iris Kelnian. Robert Taylor gave a recitation. This wonderful assembly closed with the first and last verses of America the Beautiful, followed by Taps by Conant Barton. CLASS NOTES 1932 On behalf of the Junior High, the Class of ’32 wish to thank everyone who helped to make the Junior High op- eretta a big success. The class is very much indebted to Mrs. Barnes of Room 31, Miss Eastman, Room 36, and Mr. Hoyt, Room 35, who have been our home-room teachers in the past year. Many of ’32 are seen carrying small dictionaries in to Room 33. We wonder whj- I It’s a good thing to be the leading class in the Junior High but much bet- ter to be the lowest in the Senior High. Heard in English : G. F. (after finishing oral composi- tion) : Is there any additions or sub- tractions? Miss G.: Will someone tell me what this problem is? Bright Pupil: Oh, it’s a system. Many good Junior High assemblies have been given and of course the Class of ’32 was well represented with the fol- [ 31 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC lowing rooms presenting them : Eoom 31, Eoom 35, and Eoom 36. Best o’ luck to the graduating class. We’re hoping you will do as good in the business world as you did in the school world. We are leaving Junior High after three very eventful j ears. And we are hoping the Class of ’33 to whom we leave the charge of Junior High will tiy to do as much next year as we have i in the past. | The Junior High baseball team, on which all pla 3 ’’ers are members of ’32, | so far have had a good record. The.y ' defeated the Class of ’30 of the Senior : High, the S. H. S. All Stars, and lost I to the second varsity. { The dramatic club went to the Copley Theatre, May 31. The chaperones were Mr. Harrington and Miss Eeed. Everj ' - j one agreed that they had a dandy time! ! 1933 I The 8AA accompanied by Miss Pick- 1 ering and Mr. Nadeau, journej ed to the ' Wayside Inn, which is located at Sud- bury, Mass. The history of the Inn and the Little Eed Schoolhouse was told to us, we signed our names in the Trav- elers’ Book, and were given an apple by the lady in charge. The quaint old j rooms with their handpainted pieces of wall-paper fastened to the wall were shown. We wonder who “Mary’s” favorite teacher is? We wonder why “Skippy” isn’t going up to Charles Street anj more. Mr. Nadeau : When did I tell you to do your home work? Bright French Scholar: Je ne sais pas. We wonder where the boys get their money to buy such high priced tarns. The different classrooms are giving assemblies. Eoom 32 gave an interesting assembly and acted out a play. Eoom 25 will give one soon. We should like to know why “Blackie”, “Bob” and “Bud” came home late Friday night. 1934 Eoom 26 is giving a social that is hoped to be enjoyed by all of the children in that room. Eoom 26 and room 2S are having a contest to see who will have the Thrift Banner. Room 24 Austin Junkins found a wax bird and the room voted to bring money to have it stutfed and give it to Miss Kelly for a parting gift. Eoom 24 has had the Perfect Attend- ance Banner for 7 months out of 9. Room 27 Eoom 27 and room 26 have been hav- ing a contest to see which will have the Thrift Banner. Eoom 27 has it now. This room has charge of the next seventh grade assembly. Room 28 Election of officers: President, Earl Gould. Vice-President, Leon Oliver. Secretary, Donald Grunberg. Treasurer, Edmund Blood. President, Earl Gould. Vice-President, Chester Gay. Secretary, D. Blanchard. Treasurer, James Eich. NEW TRAFFIC SQUAD On Wednesday, May 29, the traffic squad held its last meeting of the year, electing for 1929-1930 the following: Senior High — Lawrence Buck, Cap- tain; Norman Dov nes, Lieutenant; Eag- er Blackburn, Fred Corcoran, Pauline Devlin, Clare Walker, Grace Brehaut, Arthur Theroux, Gordon Marston, Mary Patch, Eobert Wallace, Helen Canning, Warren MacCurdy, Albert Kent, Herant Adzigian. Junior High — Mary Maguire, Marion Gilson, Lewis Parks, Gertrude French, Dorothy Corcoran, Charles Frost, Ed- ward Cornwells, Linda Stone, Bernard Scully, Eobert Taylor, Euth Parks. “Do you know how to tell a professor from a student?” “Oh, all right, have your own way and tell it.” “Ask him what ‘it’ is, and if he says it’s a pronoun he’s a professor.” The Seniors want to know: Which is the dumber, a dumb Junior or a bright Soph-o-more? [ 32 ] GRADUATION NUMBER TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN have been trained for business at the Bryant Stratton Commercial School, and through its Employment Department have been placed in excellent positions in which they have made wonderful advancement. YOUNG MEN with Business Administration, General Business or Secretarial Training who have been trained and placed by this School have risen to positions of prominence in the realm of business. Today they are Bankers, Proprietors, Members of Firms, Presidents, Treasurers, Executive Secretaries, Certified Public Accountants, Public Accountants, Chief Accountants, Cost Accountants, Comptrollers, Auditors, Credit Managers, Office Managers, Sales Managers, Salesmen, Purchasing Agents, Traf- fic Managers, Production Managers. YOUNG WOMEN with Secretarial, Stenographic, or General Business training, have been placed in desirable and remunerative positions, and today are Executives in banking and business houses and organizations and in educational institutions; valued Secre- taries to Presidents and Executives of business concerns, or engaged in decidedly interesting work as Private Secretaries; while some are in prominent positions as Advertising Managers, Comptrollers or Bookkeepers. THE METHOD OF INDIVIDUAL ADVANCEMENT enables the student to secure a thorough training in the shortest possible time and with the least possible cost. Students who have taken commercial training in High School will be given advanced standing according to ability.
