With its green and silver pennant fluttering proudly, it approaches its long-sought destination, Graduation. What ship is it? Why, the Class of ’30. Our officers have done good work. They have brought her home safely through a troublesome, treacherous sea. For, after all, the high school course is a perilous course to boys and girls in their teens. Nevertheless, helped by our teachers, our officers have done their responsible work successfully. On reaching Graduation, we members of the crew find our joy mingled with sadness. After years of companionship we are to be separated. We shall prob- ably never have another journey to- gether. Some of us Avill board a larger ship bound for another Graduation; others of us will plunge into the wmrld of business. That is why we feel a bit sad as we near the shore. Now that our triiD is practically over, we are able to see our faults and the mistakes we have made. Some of us have been careless; others, mutinous; some, model members of Class ’30’s crew. Still, as a whole, w e have passed with flying colors. Now we must ever try to honor the good ship “Class of ’30’’ by our conduct. Through all sorts of weather we must keep her name unsmirched. As our vessel glides into its harbor, we fire a salute of our guns to our kind and helpful trainers who have prepared us for our journey through Life. D, Sheridan.

SENIOR PLAY Playing to a packed house at Armorj Hall, the annual senior play of the Stoneham High School scored an out- standing success on May 2, 1930. The production was “Apple Blossom Time,” and the cast proved fully ade- quate to the high comedy passages of the piece, with every member contribu- ting a noteworthy performance. The action reveals the trials and trib- GRADUATION NUMBER Illations of a modern miss and her boy friend, caught in the whirl of a spring- time love affair. Lawrence Buck and Dorothy Downes, playing the leading roles, handled the parts with skill and finesse. Fred Corcoran, as Charlie Lawrence, a jmuth with great power over women, got the maximum out of his difficult part, and Clare Walker, his vis-a-vis of the play, who finally succumbed to his wiles, gave an excellent performance. Dorothy Tidd handled the difficult part of Loretta Harris, the baby-face vamp, with a capable nerve and scored repeatedly as did Bob Johnson, “Nemo” Downes, and Bob Sheehan, to whom fell the bulk of the wise-cracking in the piece. Mary Bennett as Malvina Kurtz, who played Cupid’s game with outstanding success, was adequate to her role, and a splendid performance was also given by Mary Hanley, who portrayed Polly Biddle, the perfect housekeeper. Jane Clark was both competent and convincing as Mrs. Forrest, while Cath- erine Hamill got the maximum of com- edy out of her role as Onnabel Sprig- gins, a designing spinster. Dorothy Tidd, as Loretta Harris, rounded out an excellent cast. The audience continually showed its appreciation of the fine work of the Senior thespians and every scene regis- tered with a punch. Much of the credit for the fine work of tile cast is due to the direction of George MacNeil, Sr., whose painstaking work in ' preparation for the production was rewarded by an enthusiastic recep- tion for all. The committee in charge of the play was made up as follows: Norman Downes, chairman; Phyllis Potter and Sidney Ervin. Frances Yancey was in charge of the publicity, and Edward Bugliee acted as business manager. Following the play there was danc- ing until midnight, with “Russ” Park- er’s orchestra providing the music. INVITATION PLAY DAY On Friday, May 16, about sixty Stoneham High girls, along with the girls from Reading and Melrose, were the guests at an invitation play day sponsored by Wakefield High School. The group was divided into eight teams, each represented by a color. The games plaj ed included giant ball, sack race, three-legged race, horse shoes,, hockey relay, tug of war, and kick ball, of which the sack race and three-legged race furnished plenty of comedy. Then the girls reentered the gymnasi- um where dancing and refreshments were enjoyed. The girls certainly enjoyed them- selves, being much enthused over this play day idea, and everyone hopes that Wakefield High will continue to run one each year. Last of all we wish to thank the Wakefield High Girls’ Ath- letic Council for the “best time ever.” Girls’ Athletic Editor. SENIOR BANQUET The Senior Class of Stoneham High School held its annual banquet at the Hotel Kenmore on Wednesday, May 14,. Norman Downes was toastmaster and arranged a splendid program for the oc- casion. The program included short talks by Pauline Devlin, who spoke on girls’ activities in Stoneham High. Next came the mentor of athletics at the local institution of learning, none other than Howard “Doc’’ Gordon. Our next speaker was Miss Ruth Poland, who explained the situation at the High School pertaining to girls’ athletics. Our fourth number on the program cer- tainly was a treat for all present. It was a vocal solo by none other than the inimitable Robert Sheehan. Gordon Marston then reviewed the year’s sports and, taken all in all, “Red” told quite a bit of inside information. Following “Red’s” speech there were short talks by Mr. Thibodeau, Mr. Varney, Miss Spinney, Mr. Nadeau, Mr. Watson, and Mr. Fred Corcoran. After the dinner, dancing was en- joyed until eleven-thirty, with “Al” Brackley’s Rhythm Boys furnishing the music. The guests of the Senior Class at the banquet included Mr. and Mrs. Charles Varney, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Watson, Mr. and Mrs. William Nadeau, Miss Ruth Poland, Miss Spinney, Mr. Howard Gordon and Mr, Earle Thibo- deau. The banquet committee included Sid- ney Ervin, chairman ; Phyllis Potter, Robert Sheehan, and Fred Corcoran. HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS’ ASSEMBLY On Thursday morning a very inter-, esting talk was given to the girls of the Senior and Junior High Schools by Mrs. Margaret Eggleston Owen. The title of [ 3 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Mrs. Owen’s talk was “Power of a Dream.” She began by telling us the old legend of little Nonanka and the pink slipper from which we get the name of that pretty wild flower, the lady slipper. Everyone has a dream sometime in his or her life even if it is only a very small one. Some of our greatest men and women dreamed a dream when they were young, and sometime in their life this dream came true. Mrs. Owen told us of some of the people she had known who had never had much of an oppor- tunity in life, but had always wanted to reach their highest ambition and had done so by doing right, and so, little by litlie, making their dream come true. Mrs. Owen closed by reading a little poem entitled “Dream True” by Mary Carolyn Davies. Every girl enjo 3 ' ed Mrs. Owen’s talk and we hope that we may have the pleasure of having her with us again. Priscilla Marsh ’32. HIGH SCHOOL MExMORIAL EXERCISES The combined Junior and Senior High School exercises were held at Armory Hall, Thursday morning. May 29. The student body, over seven hundred strong, marched from the high school to the Armory under the direction of pupil marshals and traffic officers. The hall was very attractively decorated for the occasion with a profusion of flowers and the national colors. The combined Junior and Senior High School orchestras played the introduc- tory marc h which was followed by the entrance of members of the veterans’ organizations and auxiliary units, es- corted by Senior boys. Principal Watson extended the wel- come of the school to the veterans, speaking briefly of the appreciation that is felt for the work that these or- ganizations have done and are doing in the perpetuation of the true spirit ' of Memorial Day. A fine program was then given by the school, each number being delivered in a manner which showed thoroughness of preparation and which reflected credit upon the pupils and teachers who had the responsibility for the arrangement of the numbers. A special feature of the program was a play, entitled “Anychild Meets Memo- ry,” dramatized by Junior High School pupils. After the program by the pu- pils Mr. Watson introduced represen- tatives of the several veteran organiza- tions and asked them to speak to the student body. The remarks made by Commander Davis and Past Commander Kenson of the Grand Army of the Re- public were particularly inspiring and effective. Short speeches by Senior Vice Commander Newhall and Past Com- manders Ames and Knapton of the U. S. W. V., and Commander Ireland and Past Commander Saxby of the American Legion were also. made. The program follows : March S. H. S.

WITH THE OBSERVER By Red Marston The faculty baseball team dropped out of the class league due to business pressure. The old timers were playing good ball and it was too bad that they were forced to stop. Mr. Reynolds has done great work in his capacity as class baseball coach. New baseball interest was revived by his efforts. Some fine varsity prospects have been developed in the league. The various athletic teams received more support this year than ever be- fore. Of course, the teams were of a high quality, but the people who stood by the teams may feel that they did their share towards making the teams a success. To the Seniors: — We have reached the end of our high school careers. What does the future hold in store for us? It is a sober question but it looks like the answer is entirely up to us. To the Juniors: — You will be enter- ing in your final year and may your reign be a happy and successful one. We believe your class has the ability to keep up the pace set by the present seniors. To the Sophomores: — You are indeed lucky. Two more years of high school and may they also be happy and pros- perous. Whoever invented the college “Bored” examinations? ’Tis rumored that in his younger days Mr. Hoyt walked ten miles to a ball game and then was too tired to climb the fence. In the last edition of the Authentic the class editor of ’31 showed a remark- able sense of humor actually making a few people laugh. The gentle hint about the athletic senior was fine — but inasmuch as the comment came from a student whose athletic activities are confined to leading the cheers — no harm is done. When an automobile knocks, the en- gine head usually has carbon in it. When the Junior class editor “knocks” there must be something wrong in . Draw your own conclusions. Mr. Reynolds knows his chemistry backv ard and forward. How the atoms, molecules and electrons fly when the sage of Pinkerton and Harvard talks. [5J THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC restbcnt’s hhrcss Frederick L. Corcoran Parents, friends, teachers and class- mates : We are gathered here today for the last time as a class. From now on, the class of 1930 will be only a memory. Henceforth we shall have no teacher’s guiding hand to teach us right from wrong as has been the custom during our past twelve years together, but we can never forget what their guidance has done for us. It i s with many regrets that we leave Stoneham High School, but it is, in truth, a necessity. The time has come when we must shift for our- selves and seek knowledge from a high- er source at a much greater cost. We must now learn from experience. Our class motto, “Find a Way or Make One,” gives us a splendid idea of what we must do to attain the highest peak of success. The world has not been waiting impatiently to accept this class into her countless numbers without a struggle, nor has the door been left open in order to make our way much easier. No, the time of help from all outside influence is past. The door is closed. We must open it ourselves and then only by a continuous struggle against overwhelming odds. To you, parents, we express our heart- felt appreciation for all that you have done to enable us to secure a good foundation for our life’s work. We realize that during our school life we have caused you no amount of trouble and worry, and it is our sincere wish that you will be amply repaid for your unceasing efforts. Next there are our teachers, our prin- cipal, our superintendent, and other school officials who have aided us in the task of becoming better citizens in our community. To them we certainly owe a real vote of thanks. This day with all its serious thoughts naturally tends to make us sober, yet it should be, at the same time, a day of happiness for us all. This afternoon we have arranged a program which we hope you will all en- joy, and it is with great pleasure that I, in behalf of the class of 1930, wel- come you to our graduation exercises. |[ics0mis J[ront “Qllfr ' tercentenary Edward A. Bugbee This year, nineteen hundred thirty, marks the three hundredth anniversary of the founding of Massachusetts. Over three hundred years ago our fathers, dreaming of a country where they might worship as they chose, set out for America. It would be interesting and instructive to recall briefly the early history of Massachusetts, for surely we can find some stirring lessons in the Puritans’ valiant fight to realize their fondest hopes. In England at the beginning of the seventeenth century many, many im- provements were being made in all the arts and sciences. A certain group of people whom we know as Puritans were especially interested in purifying the church. Although they were princi- pally a religious organization, they found it necessary to enter politics to cope with a hosiile king. After the Puritans had successfully filled many seats in Parliament, King Charles dis- banded Parliament and attempted to rule alone. His tyranny was so great that the Puritans decided to leave Eng- land. In 1628 a charter had been granted by Charles 1. This act gave to a New England Council a strip of land in America which extended from three miles north of the Merrimac Kiver to three miles south of the Charles Kiver, and from the Atlantic Ocean to the “8outh Sea of the West,” as the un- [ 6 ] GRADUATION NUMBER known ocean was called. The charter also granted to the settlers the right to elect officers and to make laws not repugnant to those of England. It was to this new land that the thoughts of the Puritans naturally turned. Up to 1630 several attempts had been made to colonize America but most of these had failed because of lack of money and supplies. Plymouth in the North, and Virginia in the South were llie two most successful of these at- tempts. In 1630, however, a large group of Puritans decided to establish a new colony in America. During that year eleven ships, carrying nine hundred passengers, left for the new land. The first ships arrived in June of 1630 to leave that band of courageous settlers to establish themselves. All summer the settlers labored con- structing houses and a church. Their first settlement was at Charlestown, but early in autumn they transported their goods to Boston. During this year more settlers arrived to swell the ranks. After a verj ' - happy summer the first chills of winter drew on. Soon, in their rudely constructed houses, many became sick and died because these new set- tlers were unaccustomed to the compar- atively severe cold of a New England winter. The food supply steadily di- minished, for much of it had spoiled and some had been traded to the In- dians. The sea and the forest yielded little. Added to this settlers had arriv- ed after the planting season and there had been no harvest. The snow seemed never so deep and the cold never so bitter as it was that year. A ship had been sent to England but the starving settlers despaired of its return. One day in February, however, their pray- ers were answered, for the ship return- ed loaded with jjrovisions which were distrilmted equally throughout Boston. Tims it was that the danger of failure was overcome and the people were en- abled to start again to accomplish their high purpose. Wich the coming of spring the settlers began their task of making useful the land to which they had come. Many tiees and large rocks had to be remov- ed before the ground could be used for planting. As a reward for their stren- uous efforts the Puritans found the soil fertile enough to raise many necessary provisions. During the summer the ad- jacent waters yielded an abundance of fish. Although the harvest was fairly bountiful, so many more settlers had come to Massachusetts that again, in the second year, they were hard pressed for food. Each year, however, saw a bettering of conditions in the Bay Col- onies in matters of fiod and shelter. By 1640 over twenty thousand people had migrated to Massachusetts, and here in this new colony was established the first town meeting type of representa- tive government. Next to till educa- tional needs it was necessary to start a school system. Out of the first “dame” schools, at which religion was the im- portant study, there grew the Boston Latin School which was founded in 1635. Harvard College, established three years later, was primarily for re- ligious education. Religion was taught not only in the schools, but by the par- ents as well, who were urged to do so bj " the legislators of Massachusetts. From these religious, governmental, and educational beginnings, our present conditions have resulted. Our school system, one of the most important fac- tors in the present day American com- munity, is a development of the high ideals set for us by these founders of American educational institutions. Our modern government still retains the in- fluence and much of the form of the first town meetings held in the Bay Col- onies. Out of the religious experiences of these hardy pioneers has developed the desirable freedom of religious thought and practice. Now that we have examined the early history of our forefathers, the Puritans, it would be well for us to draw from it some lessons that we may well re- member. When those far-seeing people were suppressed in their desires, they began to dream earnestly of a way to attain their purpose, — the betterment of themselves. Their ambition, that they might Avorship as they chose, first led them to attempts at purifying the Eng- lish Church. A failure to realize this ambition only met with the dauntless spirit, which increased their purpose to worship as they thought right. They foresaw the possibilities of that new land, America, to aid them in achieving their desires. Their dreams were so compelling, their ideals so high, that they were willing to brave a vast and hostile sea in their attempt to succeed. When those courageous Puritans reach- ed America, they did not cease in their [ 7 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC desire for improvement, for, as we have seen, they immediately set to work to make New England habitable. Their visions have never ceased, for each gen- eration has received them to increase and to widen them. You have but to look around you in your daily life to see what those visions have produced for us. With that quality of vision, the ele- ment of perseverance must be coupled. Had the Puritans merely wished that their conditions were better, and had failed to attempt their self-improve- ment, their cause would have been lost. Quite to the contrary, however, they set out to conquer the unknown. When they had reached this country, their | spirits were high, and they set to work with a will. At the beginning of win- ter, however, when the food supply was diminishing, it was sheer pluck and perseverance that enabled them to win out. At the approach of spring they set forth with iron will to conquer the opposing forces of nature. The strug- gles of these people have proved to us iiow important is that quality of per- severance. When the Puritans succeeded in their endeavors, there came to them what might readily be called the joy of ae- chievement, a joy that kindled an ar- dent zeal to accomplish more. When success came, it enabled them to perse- vere even more, for they then realized i what success meant. It filled them with optimism, a splendid quality in itself. They soon found that optimism, makes a person indomitable, and so with the aid of optimism, the joy of achievement, and perseverance the Puritans progress- ed rapidly. As a step in their development they realized at once the importance of edu- cation. The lesson that the Puritans learned then is beginning t o be appre- ciated in our school of today. Educa- tion is not merely the acquiring of knowledge. It is instruction in the art of citizenship. W ' e are daily being taught that we may intelligently take our places in America’s great democra- cy. We haA e learned that success comes, not through selfish standards but through service to others. We are be- ing shown the great possibilities that America has for those v ho are soon to carry her responsibilities. Our history shows us the many examples so that we may be inspired, so that we may be filled with confidence to face our tasks. Thus we see that merely to sympa- thize with the Puritans’ vision and to laud their perseverance is not enough. It is our task to visualize America’s fu- ture and to persevere in that task of bettering America. America will bo just what we make it, and Avith the in- spiration that Ave have gained from our forefathers we surely can make of it a nation over greater as the years go by. Ollass istory Clare Walker Before you this evening is the first class to have completed the six years of Junior and Senior High School in the new building on William Street. As seventh graders this fact filled us with pride. Our eventful career really began when we became freshmen. We, how- ever, were seldom called freshmen. Our superiors in Senior High called us ninth graders; Avhile Ave, ourselves, selected Seniors of the Junior High as our title. During the first week of school the sen- iors could not carry out the usual cus- tom of sending “fresliies” to the third floor when they sought a room in the first; for Ave, having been in the build- ing two years, kncAv the location of every room. Being freshmen, we were privileged to elect our class officers. The folloAV- ing people received the honors: Presi- dent, Eichard Johnston; Vice President LaAvrence Buck; Secretary, Norman Downes; Treasurer, Fred Brouilliard; Chairman of the Social Committee, Nancy Patterson. Two socials were held that year, and with them Fred’s duties began. On the last day of the school year we regretted leaving our Junior High teachers and friends, but our hearts thumped for joy as the bell signaled us to our sophomore home rooms. Now we Avere “sophs” and had the tAvo largest rooms on the first floor, Eoom 4 with Miss Davis, and Eoom 7 with Miss Gar- land. There Avere several changes in [ 8 ] GRADUATION NUMBER our class officers. Richard Johnston still hold the presidency, while Ed- ward Bugbee was elected Vice Presi- dent; Dora Sheridan, Secretary; Phyllis Potter, Treasurer; and Ruth Brawn, Chairman if the Social Committee. This was our first year in varsity spoi ' ts. Several of our number receiv- ed letters, while others were well start- ed toward success in that direction. Class basketball was organized for girls, and many of the class of ’30 received tlieir numerals. It was during our sophomore year tliat we were pleased to welcome Miss Gladys French to the teaching staff. The longer we knew her, the better we liked her. In case you do not know of wliom I speak let me add that last June she became Mrs. Milton. Two more socials were held that year, and our treasury was swelled to some extent. Another June drew near,and our sopho- more year was over. The Junior year was our next step. Miss Reed and Mr. Al- den were honored with our presence ; or, if they weren’t, they should have been, for we really were something in Stoneham High now. Agai]i changes occurred in our executive board. Fred Corcoran became our President ; Ed- ward Bugbee, our Vice President; Ar- thur Theroux, Secretary; Norman Downes, Treasurer; and Phyllis Potter, Cliairman of the Social Committee. Tlie new football coach was the talk of the school that September. Before many days he had become one of the favorites, for “Doc” Gordon started tilings spinning in Stoneham High. He not only made champion teams and en- thusiastic rooters, but he supervised a winter carnival which, as you know, was a great success. We juniors were hap- py to have a part in carrying out “Doc’s” i)lans. The next important event was the Junior Prom; and, with the exception of our financial problems, this, too, was a great success. The closing of our junior year brought several changes in our faculty. We all regretted to see Mr. Frederick W. Porter, our superintendent, leave, and also our beloved French teacher. Miss Moore. Miss Reed, although she had only been with us a year, v» as also missed that following September. At last we were to occupy these im- portant seats in Room 13 with Mr. Thibodeau, who is an old favorite with seniors. There was not enough room for everyone there, however, so the classical boys went to Room 18 with Mr. Hoyt, while the girls in the business course had Miss Nesbit in Room 12 as their teacher. Fred Corcoran, once more, took the lead as senior class president, with Law- rence Buck serving as Vice President. Gordon Marston was elected Secretary, and Arthur Theroux, Treasurer. Phyl- lis Potter still held the social chairman- ship. We were pleased to welcome Mr. Var- ney as our new superintendent. Al- though our acquaintance has been a short one, it has shown us that Mr. Var- ney is a true friend of Stoneham Sen- iors. We leave him with best wishes for many happy years with other sen- ior classes. Miss Spinney, who filled Miss Moore’s place, has proved to be another favorite in Stoneham. Miss Johnson was also very welcome in Room 8. We mustn’t forget our own latest innovation. Bob Sheehan’s trio. If you haven’t heard them, you have missed some real music. They were publicly introduced at the theatre on High School Pep Night. Another big event of the year was the Senior Hop and shortly after that came the second winter carnival. This one was even better than the first. The seniors felt honored to have Mina Gray elected carnival queen. In the hands of the senior class the “Authentic” has not lost its position as a good school paper. We hope the class of ’31 will find as much pleasure in edit- ing it as we have during the past year. The class voted a change in the style of its rings. A very good looking ring has been selected and, we hope, it will remain as a standard in Stoneham High. In May, much unknown talent was discovered at the presentation of “Ap- ple Blossom Time,” the annual Senior Glass play. The crowning event if the year was our banquet at the Hotel Kenmore. We shall never forget that evening’s pro- gram in the Crystal Ballroom with “Ne- mo” Downes as our efficient toastmas- ter. This graduation and senior reception bring our history to a close. The class if 1930 will make no more history as a group, but each will go his own way so much the wiser and better fitted for life because of these four happy years spent together.

Eight years — yes, eight long years with only an intermittent letter from my folks. And these letters contained very little news outside the family circle. Homeward bound — to the hand-clasps of ‘‘Nemo,” Freddie, Eddie, Bob, John- nie, and all my old pals of 1930. Business had necessitated my report- ing to the London office of the Orien- tal Importing Company, whose affairs I had been managing in China ancf In- dia. This was my last day in London, then Southampton and home. A good dinner at the Trocadero would be a fit closing for my London visit. As I entered the foyer, the band was playing and people were streaming in. The head waiter showed me to a rather in- conspicuous corner. After ordering my dinner I glanced around to see who might be there. At a table next to me were two ladies apparently alone — one rather young, and the other about thirty. It was the older one who claimed my attention. She was small, dark, almost unattractive. I noticed that she wore glasses that were so strong that her eyes seemed uncannily large. As I gazed — yes, I almost gaped at her — she beckoned for me to come to her table. “She doesn’t interest me so why should I bother,” I thought. Yet her personality and apparent un- derstanding made me go. No sooner had I seated myself when she said, “Give me something that you are wearing.” I was astonished and a little amused. This was an odd request. “What do you want and why?” “I can tell you all about your friends.” she said, “and you seem most anxious to know about them. Let me have your ring.” “What’s all this?” I asked, “magic stuff or something like that? What do you take me for?” “Let me show you,” she said, and held out her hand. So I gave her a ring — a heavy signet, and wondered what she would do with it. She let it lie in her hand for a moment and then overcome by the strain of deep conceniration, placed it between her eyes. “Water,” she exclaimed. “A ship plow- ing on full steam ahead is going to take you home.” “Quite true,” I said, and wondered a little on her strange power. “For many months you have been lonely and you have wondered much about your old classmates of Stoneham High School. Now you shall know.” I knew nothing of clairvoyance and had made it a point to avoid unnatural things all my life. Hence, I was some- what surprised and startled as she con- tinued : “I see at once a strong-willed and of- ficious person, one who was used to run- ning things. I believe his watchword was ‘Let little Charley do it.’ It’s your pal, Freddie Corcoran. He is now run- ning a second hand book store in South Boston. His shop is one of quaint charm and interest. Mary Ferguson is his chief assistant. Mary’s charm and great domestic ability have helped the sale of books tremendously. Just at this time Mary is absorbed in a new book, “A Bill For Every Mary.” Dur- ing the last week, however, Freddie has been pushing forward a book entitled “The World Without Men” by Doris Hunt. Miss Hunt has cited herself with many others as splendid examples of spinsterhood. Her book has been en- dorsed by several prominent women of the time. Among them is Phyllis Pot- ter, ingenious interior decorator and ar- tist. (I always thought Phil to be quite apt in domestic problems.) Lulu Wil- kins, Elizabeth Whitcher, and Mildred Thayer strongly agree with Doris Vir- 1 ginia. These last three ladies are run- ning for clectiin to city offices next fail. “The janitor of the quaint shop is none other than Bob Doherty. Bob is industrious but nothing pleases him more than to settle down in a quiet cor- ner with a funny sheet. “The scene is changing now, my friend,” said my informer. “I see now a large theatre. The Consolidated Stonehamite Stock Company is playing an opening performance of “Hamlet.” Arthur Clark is filling the title role. Ophelia is played by Anna (Squeak) Pickens. It has been said that Miss Pickens does the floating scene very at- tractively. The brutish king is charac- [ 10 ] GRADUATION NUMBER torized hy Bob Johnson. Johnnie cer- tainly does his part in true out-of-town fashion. Miss Jane E. Clark takes the part of Gertrude. Jane takes her pois- on Avithout a murmur. Polonius is pic- tured by Sid Ervin, and when Sid falls behind that curtain — O! Hamlet. Laer- tes, the boy with the avengeful spirit, is played by Bill Lister. I find the roles of Eosencrantz and Guildenstern aptly taken by Carl Junkins and An- dreAV May. The audience heaves a pro- found sigh in the last act when Carl and Andy cheerfully give up their heads. The orchestra leader is Dora Sheridan. Dora grows impatient for the curtain it seems. She comes early to every per- formance — she likes to ride in the ele- vator. At last the curtain rises. Chuck Grafton, the stage manager, sees to that. The curtain always rises wheth- er anything else happens or not. The audience seems lost in admira- tion. Even your friend, Mr. Alden, would firmly agree that “Tub” Clark outdoes Barrymore. While the audience is ap- plauding the beautiful fall of Sid Er- vin as Polonius, I will look into the audience for you. I see first a group wliich occupies a white box. There is a banner over the box which bears the words, “Standisii Overdramatic Com- pany.” Lem Standish is the leader of this outfit. He is surrounded by Clare Walker, Kalph Cameron, “Churchie” Newman, Paul Messier, Alonzo Card, and I’auline Devlin, all admirers of Mr. Standish’s dram.atic influence and abili- ty. The whole group seems gripped by the play. Their eyes are riveted on the actors. Truly they are tomorroAv’s dramatists. In the box next to them there is a well dressed man and Avoman avIio are apparently man and wife. I see his name now, Mr. Art Theroux. Art has met AA’ith great success as the silver- throated tenor. The woman Avith him is also the possessor of a charming per- sonality. Her name is coming sloAvly. All, I have it! This Avoman was once Mary Hanley of High Street. Just noAV a third man thrusts his head into the Theroux box. His hair is a glorifying rod. His stately personage is covered Avith lirass buttons. In a very dignified manner, Gordon Marston tells Mr. The- roux that his presence is requested in the lobby. Mary looks alarmed but Art taps lior shoulder reassuringly and gets up to leave. ‘ ' Red” springs aside to let Art pass. (“Eed” always did like to spring (St.). Pll follow them to the lobby. On arriving there, I am greeted by the strange sight of ten orderly police- men in rank before the box office. I see George Dushane, Carlton Davis, Ed Wood, Elmer Rice, “Froggie” D’Entre- mont, and Edgar Martin among them. Even after this lapse of time “Froggie” still has the same Cheshire cat grin. These officers are efficiently ordered about by Len Anderson. An admiring group of ushers are Avatching the scene. Eddie Grunberg and Hac Ringland are convulsed Avith mirth as usual. This irritates Len to a high degree and his face takes on a more furious expression. He is asking Art to identify some stranger. The manager of the theatre, Dick Davis, comes to his rescue and helps Art out of a trying situation. See- ing evudent defeat, Len issues a sharp order and his little squad moves off. Very much relieved, Art rejoins the Mrs. (At this point the lady Avith the glass- es asked for some Avater.) “I see a bright new village now. The first and largest building is the toAvn hall. It is inscribed with gilt letters Willardsburg. The selectmen are at the moment assembled for a conference. “Nemo” Downes is the main spring of Willardsburg. I believe his full name Avas Norman Willard Downes? Well, you see the town carries his name. The other two selectmen are Roger Black- burn and Ralph Jenkins. These three men are noAV debating the matter of an inter-A’illage bus line. Roger argues that the next village is in no condition to support a bus line. “Nemo” replies that as a neighboring village they should bear their neighbor’s infirmities. Ralph agrees Avith both Roger and “Ne- mo.” Oh, yes! Willardsburg is well governed. On leaving the town hall I see prosperous stores and shops. Gor- don Pettengill runs the meat market. He has just hired Ken Pierce as deliv- erj’’ boy. “Pet” sure can sling a meat chopper and “Ken” knows it. Inciden- tally, Ken and “Pet” still drive a smart, brown car ! Dot Downes and Evelyn Clark are in partnership. They run a pin and needle shop and their beaux still come in pairs. The next shop is run by little Mina Gray. She is still petite ! She’s been queen of many car- nivals — but Johnnie Driscoll says she is his queen for life! After leaving Mina’s shop I see the village outskirts. A cozy little cottage holds the point of [ 11 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC vantage on a beautiful hill. On draw- ing near, I see a domestic scene well worth painting. The sweet woman is the former Mary Hynes. A curly-head- ed chap sits in her lap and two more hang over the back of her chair. I see a young man in the doorway — Gene Brackley is the way I see the name. There is a well-worn path around the i house. It’s easy to see that Gene still keeps in training! Again I see open fields. This time it seems to be cultivated. I see a young farmer carefully hoeing dandelions. As he looks up, I can see Eddie Bugbee. He’s now cultivating dandelions for market in the city, to be used chiefly in the manufacture of complexion creme. Eddie is making money — dandelion over dandelion I Mrs. Eddie or Kay Hamill is happy as a lark. It was Kay who pulled Eddie through when the dande- lions were stringy. “The scene is again assuming differ- ent colors,” said my magician. “This time I see a large crowd on Boston Com- mon. Everyone’s attention is on a ro- bust woman who is wildly gesticulating and talking in a loud voice. The wom- an is Dorothy Tidd. She is speaking on ‘More Liberty For Women Divers’. Ev- ery five minutes Ethel Hume and Myr- tle Morrison rush to Miss Tidd with a glass of water. (I always thought Ethel was a fine diver — I wonder w’hy she needs liberty.) Joe Driscoll and Midge Markham are in the first row of seats. Both are munching apples and peanuts, enjoying themselves immensely. Arthur Knopp, Jim Donegan, and Sumner Thompson comprise a group of wise- crackers in the crowd — but Miss Tidd has wonderful courage ! Evidently Le- roy Card and Bernie Comer agree with Dot on more rights for women — they eye Knoppie, Jimmie, and Sumner with deep disgust. Up across the common I see the new Touraine Hotel. Two men are industriously washing windows on the top floor. They are your old classmates, Fran Scanlon and A1 Sher- man, the two most fearless steeple jacks this side of Walpole! At the junction of Boylston and Tremont streets, A1 (Stucco) Rotundi is directing traffic. A1 raises a white-gloved hand to stop a beautiful Packard touring car. Edna Daw is driving with A1 Meek taking up the rest of the front seat. Thelma Crandall and Emily Ritchie do the back seat driving with Bill French. Fran Yancey is now running a cigar store on Tremont Street. Some of Fran’s sto- gies would make your hair stand on end. Fran drew comic strips as a side line. Lester Young is clerk in Fran’s estab- lisliment. He was sick for the first day or two but he has grown used to each and every brand now! John Morrison is a floor walker in Raymond’s. He has held the position for the past five years. The management is well pleased with Johnnie’s ability to help (smart) young people in distress. “Again the vision travels,” said my in- formant. “This time I see the sunny beach at Miami, Florida. The Holts- berg sisters, A1 and Lil, teach swimming school at the fashionable resort. Their clients come in droves. Lil al- ways starts them off with the dog pad- dle. A1 takes care of the high diving. The Warren sisters. Hazel and Eliza- beth, have started another school a mile or so down the beach. Since the season opened Cal Thornburg and Art Tole have been advertising the Warren school as a safer all-around investment! Lil and A1 remain undisturbed, how- ever. They firmly believe that compe- tition is the life of business. The one hot-dog establishment at Miami is run bj ' Fred Brouillard and Loretta McDon- ough. They are practically swamped in business. Lettie spreads picallily and mustard by the gallon. George Ma- honey, star of the Boston Bruins, af- firms that the Brouilard-McDonough hot-dogs are the best on the market. Herb Brock and Bob Brown are life guards at Miami. Bob always was a brawny boy! Marjorie Pickhardt and Ruth Sutherland are long distance swimmers. Marj is extremely careful not to venture too far out. Herbie Brock rescued her once! Marj has de- cided to stay rescued. Bertha Wessell and Eloise Frost are traveling with the Southern Star Stock Company. Miss Wessell has also developed her voice. Ruth Newcomb is happily married and has lived for the past two years in Tex- as. I can see that she made the journey in a 1930 Ford coupe. Ed Perkins is a cow puncher on a Texas ranch. Ed cer- tainly can throw the rope. While we are in Texas, my vision shows me a lonely ranch just outside the city limits of Dallas. Mr. Earle Thom- as Thibodeau, valued friend of the Class of 1930, is the owner of this ranch. He cultivates onions from morning till night. It seems to me that he is ex- tremely happy. A strange happiness [ 12 ] GRADUATION NUMBER iiuleed. Maybe it’s that much talked of Texas moon that has had such beneficial results? But I wonder! My vision is now following a train speeding northward. At Atlantic City I see a happy throng on the celebrated board walk. George Halpin and Marion Lovering are selling imported monkeys. The monkeys keep George busy, but usually he gets along finely with them. Jimmie and Tommie Roach have found- ed the Roach Squeezum Oil Corpora- tion. They are taking advantage of the money floating around at Atlantic City. The 3 claim they have oil to back up their project. However, Craige White, who is now a detective, is keeping a watchful eye on them. Craige’s dime- novel scowl would make Bulldog Drum- mond quiver! And lastly, your old partner in crime, Bob Sheehan, is this night in London. He has spent the last five years in Italy studying voice. At present he is in his dressing room at the Coventry Gardens Opera House getting ready to make his debut in “Aida” before London society. If you rush from here, take a taxi and drive there, you’ll arrive three or four minutes before the opening curtain.” I made no move to go. My brain was in a whirl. “Go, I tell you. Go,” she said. She waved away my thanks, and with a ges- ture urged me not to waste a moment to say, “Thank you.” To the rhythm of the taxi’s engine, I found myself saying, “I’m going to see one of my old classmates, Bobbie Shee- han. And now I’ll get the news first hand.” Prapt|ecy of prophet Robert As I was going to Boston on the ele- vated, I commenced to read the adver- tisements. There were many in number — from the advertisements of Sloan’s Liniment to Friend’s Baked Beans — Imt tlicre were one or two which hap- pened to catch my eye. One was a pic- ture of a young man dressed in a blue serge suit, carrying a cane. The title of the ad was “Picture Yourself in Blue.” I looked at the face of the mod- el and noticed that it was strangely familiar, but I could not recollect who Sheehan it was. The next ad was for Arrow Collars with the same model. “Could that be Laurie Buck?” I asked myself, j Then I looked again at a full-length ad- vertisement. This time I was sure. It 1 was published by the Tuberculosis j Health Association recommending 1 “Shorts” with silk waists and silk stock- ! ings, etc., for men’s summer wear. I glanced downward. “Yes, sir ! If I couldn’t remember Laurie’s face, no- body could fool me on those feet!” FOREIGN DEPARTMENT DOES IT PAY TO GUESS? J’aime une nuit de I’hiver Do toutes les nuits de tons Ics mois — Quand la neige brille toujours Ft la lune luit par la foret noire. Toutes les etoiles en haut Brillent comme cristal et bijouterie belle ; Et comme un petit mouton egare, IJn nuage inonde dans le vaste ciel.

All those who wish to enter the sacred sanctum of the mi hty oracle of statistics will be grant- ed an audience. Searching through the records of the statistics the all know- ing one gave me the following reports. He said that these statistics were not compiled with any injurious intent, but rather in a mirth provoking spirit. All senior mentioned herein are kindly re- quested not to feel hurt. The class total height is 500 feet which would feed 427 hungry dogs if a string of frankfurts were placed end to end for the entire 500 feet. Barnum’s 14 best elephants only weigh two and one-quarter pounds more than the total weight of our class which is 17,442 pounds. The total age of the class equals 1,620 years which accounts for the swanky beards and trim moustaches that some of the senior boys wear, es- pecially Mr. Arthur Theroux. Now, on with the bad news!

BASEBALL Stoneham 18 — Reading 1 Stoneham buried Reading under an avalanche of runs, 18 to 1, and took the lead in the Middlesex League, Wednes- day, April 25, on the Pomeworth Street playgrounds. A big third inning, in which Stoneham tallied ten markers on only four solid hits, put the skids under [ 19 ] THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Reading ' . ' “Art” Theroux, Stoneham’s port sider, held Reading to only one run and three hits, while he led his team at bat with three singles out of four times up. “Jimmy” Messina, who entered the contest in the fifth, con- tinued the good work. Coach Gordon’s boys started the first with three runs. Avery hit a hard grounder to third and got on first on the third baseman’s error. Corcoran followed and received a life on anoth- er misplay. “Red” Marston sacrificed to advance the runners. A stinging single by Adzigian brought the two runs in. Rice fiied out to left and Adzi ad- vanced, Kent’s out allowing him to trot in. Reading got its only run in the sec- ond on two singles and an error. The third was a baseball comedy of errors on the part of Reading. Adzi opened up by reaching first on a mis- play and Rice clocked a peach over thii ' d. Adzi came in on Kent’s grass cutter between short and third. Doher- ty got to first on an error to fill the bases. Downes cracked a sizzler to Gas- coigne, who juggled the ball as Rice and Kent raced home. Theroux follow- ed with a healthy wallop, chasing Do- herty and Downes over the platter. Avery got on first on an error, follow- ed by Corcoran on another misplay. Marston brought Theroux in with a sac- rifice and Adzi cleared the bases with a scorching single to end the scoring. After Stoneham got another in the fifth and four in the sixth, Reading agreed to stop the game at the end of the seventh because of the cold.

Stoneham 10 — Belmont 3 Stoneham rode rough-shod over the Belmont team, 10 to 3, in her second successive Middlesex League victory, Wednesday, April 30, at the Pomeworth street grounds, and seems well on the way to a second successive title. Still unbeaten in any of the league battles, the local boys are leading the race for the cup. “Art” Theroux, the mainstay of the pitching staff, allowed Belmont but four liits, while he and his teammate were slamming “Polly” Harris’s pitchers for tw’elve safeties. Belmont started right in to win the game, setting a run in the first on a pass, an out and a single. But Stone- ham came back in turn and clubbed out three tallies. Corcoran poled a peach out to center and then stole second, Marston slammed a wicked grounder just inside of third, driving Corcoran in ahead, made home when the left field- er let the ball roll through his legs. Adzigian followed with a line drive over third and scored on the longest wallop of the game, Kent’s screaming triple to left center. The second boosted the local’s total with four more. Downes started off witli a scorching single, “Art” Theroux came through with a clout nicely placed behind second, Downes reaching third on the play. Corcoran grounded to the second baseman, who threw home to nab Downes as he came in. But Downes reversed and outran the catcher back to third, allowing Fred to reach first to fill the sacks. “Red” Marston poled a grounder to short, forcing Downes at [ 20 ] GRADUATION NUMBER the plate, still leaving the bases loaded. Adzi leaned on one of Butterworth’s fast slants and clouted a fast hopper inside second to right center. The cen- terfielder found it too hot and juggled it while Theroux, Corcoran, and Marston raced home. Adzi meanwhile contin- ued and reached home safely when the peg went wild. The Blue and White scored two more in the fourth. Belmont made a dying tlurry to increase her total by two. Another Stoneham run in the fifth spell- ed finis to the scoring.

The locals got their runs in three batches of four and a single marker in the second. They knocked out fourteen safe wallops, in- cluding a long three-bagger by Avery. Although Saugus managed to connect for nine safeties, Theroux kept them well scattered and fanned thirteen in eight frames while Doherty whiffed three in succession in the ninth. Adzi was the big sticker of the afternoon with three hits. Stoneham went into the last half of the third with fire in its eyes and hits pouring off the bats to emerge with four big markers. Theroux started off with a nice little single. The next man, Av- ery, died out to center. Corcoran took a walk and Marston filled the sacks with a timely single. Theroux and Cor- coran crossed the plate on Adzi’s health- ly two-bagger. Rice s single cleared the bases. After that big third it was all Stone- ham, Saugus threatening only once in the fourth to get another run. A lusty triple by Avery helped in the scoring in the sixth in which the locals got four runs followed by four more in the eighth.

Stoneham 4 — Walpole 2 A big fourth inning in which they scored three runs gave Stoneham High a victory over Walpole, 4 to 2, Saturday, May 3. “Sonny” Doherty, bearing down in the pinches, chocked off rallies b.y the Walpole team in the sixth and sev- enth, and his slashing double in the fourth, which drove in two runs was the big blow of the game. After the fourth, Stoneham was un- able to solve Fitzgerald, who was on the mound for Walpole, and only tight play and excellent pitching by Doherty held the visitors in check. “Sonny”, with a perfect day at bat, j led his team’s attack in addition to flinging a masterly game. Avery started the game by drawing a walk and was sacrificed to second by Cordoran. ‘ Eed” Marston crashed a sizzling single to score Avery for the first tally of the game. Adzi got on as Marston was thrown out at second but didn’t score after stealing 2nd and 3rd. The third was the big inning of the game for Coach Gordon’s boys. Again a pass started the stanza off, Marston taking a walk. The next two men struck out, but Kent, undiscouraged, poked out a long single to left. Then Doherty came through with the most telling swat of the game, a two-bagger, which scored Marston and Kent. A mo- ment later a pretty single by Downes scored Doherty with the fourth and last Stoneham run. But Walpole wasn’t through. She came back in the sixth for a run and was only stopped by “Sonny’s” closing the scoring with a strikeout with a man on third. Walpole threatened again in the sixth and garnered another run but from then on was held in cheek.

Stoneham 10 — Lexington 3 The Stoneham High baseball team ad- ded two more points to its credit in tlie Middlesex Valley League race when it took its third straight league game from Lexington on Friday, May 9, by the score of 10 to 3. The Stoneham boys played heads-up baseball from start to finish and although they were outhit 7 to 5, they made the most of the breaks. Stoneham opened the scoring in the second with two runs without a hit. Eice was safe on Lewis’ miscue, Kent walked and Connors advanced both run- ners a base. Downes and Theroux were hit by pitched balls and Avery hit a sacrifice fly to center field. Corcoran walked to fill the bases but Marston was thrown out by the pitcher. Stone- ham added five in the fourth, one in the fifth and two in the seventh to com- plete the scoring. Lexington scored one in the seventh, one in the eighth and one in the nintli.

Stoneham 11 — M. A. C. Freshmen 2 The Stoneham High baseball team journeyed to Amherst, Saturday, May 10, and defeated the Mass. Aggie Fresh- men by the score of 11 to 2. This trip, which was about one hundred and ten miles in k ngth, was something rather unusual for a Stoneham High team and was very interesting for all who took it. M. A. C. is the old camping ground of “Doc ’ Gordon, the baseball mentor at the local high, and ‘‘Doc” showed the boys the grounds and fraternity houses. The M. A. C. Freshmen opened the scoring in the first frame on an error and a two base hit but this lead was soon wiped out in the second inning on a two base hit, a base on balls, and two errors. The locals added two more runs in the third, after two were out, on two hits, and a passed ball by the catcher. The Stoneham boys added two runs in the sixth and scored the final four runs in the ninth. The M. A. C. Freshmen added their final run in the seventh. Rice and Adzigian did the heavy hit- ting for the locals while Smith was best at bat for M. A. C.

Marston opened with a single to left field. Adzigian fanned. Eice got his second hit, Marston getting to third. Kent poked a grounder to the second baseman who booted it allowing Mar- ston to score.

Stoneham 8 — Belmont 1 Stoneham won its fourth league vie- GRADUATION NUMBER tory out of five starts by trouncing Bel- mont Pligh at Belmont, 8 to 1, on Fri- day afternoon, May 24. “Sonny” Do- herty was on the mound and allowed only three hits and struck out ten men. Two homers, one by Kent in the third v ith two men on, and one by Marston in the seventh sewed up the ball game for the locals. Belmont used three pitchers during the game but their un- steadiness permitted Stoneham to win, although the Blue and White got only six safe ties. Three passes in a row by Howett in first gave Stoneham a run on Doherty’s infield hit. The third swelled Stone- liam’s total by three more when Ma- honey hit, Marston walked, and Kent banged out his homer. Two more came in on two passes and an error in the fifth. One in the seventh on Marston’s liomer and another in the ninth on Ad- zigian’s double and Peterson’s single ac- counted for Stoneham’s eight runs. Belmont’s only run came in the ninth after Coach Gordon had put in a com- plete new team and resulted from a hit sajidwiched between two errors.

Stoneham 7 — Reading 3 Flashing a snappy brand of baseball, the Stoneham High school team clinch- ed its second successive Middlesex League championship at Reading, Wed- nesday afternoon. May 29, by a score of 7 to 3. In the sixth inning. Umpire Featherstone called the game on ac- count of rain. Old Jupe Pluv, how- ever, did not act as a life saver, as the local aggregation outplayed the Read- ing team in every department of the game, and looked a winner from the start. Readiiig put up a poor defense, ten errors contributing largely to the Stone- ham scoring. The locals found Dorron for five hits, two of which were from the bat of Capt. “Red” Marston, whose solid triple was the best smash of the game. Pitcher Theroux played a tight brand of ball, allowing only three hits. The Reading team started off badly. Mahoney reached first on an error with one down in the first and went around to third on two more errors, scoring on a single by Rice. In the second Doherty was passed, ad- vanced on a passed ball by Doucette and tallied on Corcoran’s infield out. In this inning Reading scored on a pass and a double. Stoneham batted in another run in the third, when Marston poled out a three-ply wallop and scored on Kent’s single. Marston singled with one gone in the fifth. Eice was passed and a perfect double steal advanced both run- ners. Marston scored on a passed ball and Eice tallied on Kent’s drive to short. Both teams scored twice in the sixth, although Stoneham failed to get a hit in that inning. Corcoran was passed. Theroux was safe on an error at short and the second double steal was pulled oft ' . A misplay on Adzigian’s roller to second let Corcoran tally and Theroux cro ssed the plate on another error. A pass, coupled with a hit and an error gave Reading two runs.

It plainly shows how very enthusiastic you are over sports. Could you work in a few more jokes? The Advance, Salem High School — This paper has some fine stories and es- says. The class notes are great. Ath- , letic and Alumni sections should be I enlarged to the same proportions as the Literary and Class Notes departments. The S. H. S. Radiator, Somerville High School — This is one of the best magazines we’ve seen. You have some remarkable artists and cartoonists in your midst. Your class and alumni notes are also commendable. Hamilton, Hamilton High School — Your class notes and editorials are very good. We missed your athletic report in the April number. Your stories are : all fine and your joke department is very complete. The Aegis, Beverly High School — My, but you have a variety of departments, and all very good, too. Aren’t there any athletics down in Beverly High? Or did they get lost in the Easter rush? Academe, Drury H. S., W. Adams — Your college number is quite interest- ing. Publishing such an issue is a fine idea that might be an improvement for several other magazines. Your ex- change department is quite small, es- pecially since you receive such a great number of magazines and papers. Record, Newburyport High School — Our old friend again! With just as ex- cellent a magazine as ever, too. Your exchanges were quite cleverly written. Your editorials were fine, also your stories about old Newburyport. “The Beach at Low Tide” was an exceptional- ly w ' ell drawn pen picture ; it made us wonder what beach the author had in mind. It certainly wasn’t the beach at Newburj ' port. Pd like to say a lot more about the rest of the Exchanges but I have the wrath of the Clerical committee on my head now because this report is three days late ! GRADUATION NUMBER CLASS NOTES Class Notes of ’30 The Senior banquet certainly was a success. The banquet committee car- ried out its work in a very efficient manner. — X — Bob Sheehan’s new Ford, a gradua- tion present, is a late sport model. The lucky boy, in company with two other senior boys, gave it a testing out on the night of the banquet. — X — When looking for smiling Irish eyes — see Mahoney. — X — “Nemo” Downes and Fred Corcoran should be jockeys because they are al- ways “riding” each other. — X — Cameron, the milkman, and Petten- gill, the mechanic, are two typical cronies. — X — J. Edgar Martin’s upward climb to success reads like one of Horatio Al- ger’s great masterpieces. Edgar cuts quite a figure in Cambridge society. — X — “Tiger” Yancey has developed into a demon driver even shadowing the wild- est moments of Albert Meek. — X — “Spud” Rice nearly put the A. A. into debt by losing so many baseballs. When Elmer hits ’em they stay hit. He is like Bill Terry of the New York Giants who says, “I’m not much of a fielder, but I sure can everlastingly slap that apple.” — X — Albert Meek is probably the best baseball manager we have had in years. Meekie is always on the job. — X — Downes: What’s a Greek urn? Sheehan : Twenty-five bucks a week unless he owns the restaurant. — X — E: McKinley was shot in the Pan American Union. P. M. : What a funny place to get shot in. — X — Mr. Reynolds: When I give the Col- lege Board exams, there will be special rates for Cameron and Pettengill. — X — Junior Class Notes Hoard in the Gym: Please name some of the Daily Doz- en and describe them. Pupil: Head, leg, arm and abdominal exercises, done alternately. — X — Mr. D. (to young lady at the piano during music) : All right, young, “Speed Our Republic.” — X — We wonder: What Mr. Thibodeau and Peterson have in common? If Mr. T. likes to see us blush? It seems that way. If Mr. T. wanted to find out our age when he asked us who was president when we were born? What happened to the cake that was made in cooking by two bright cooks. — X — Time, tide, and the Three Musketeers wait for no man (Sally), (Milly), (Wink). — X — Class Notes of ’31 To our dearly beloved Seniors we wish to express our feelings by hoping that they will have the best of luck in the years to follow. — X — Now we are the Seniors of Stoneham High School and may we live up to the good examples the Class of 1930 have made for us. — X — We hope that everyone will be able to “stick” with us during the coming year. — X — We wish to congratulate the Class of ’30 on their play. It was the best ever. Of course ours will have to be very good to beat it but we will try. — X — In the last edition of the Authentic a certain Senior was very peeved. He shouldn’t have been. We all have to take a “knock” now and then. If he’s that kind of a sport we hope he’ll never 1)0 “knocked around.” — X — Class Notes of ’32 The best o’ luck is all we can wish the graduation class and may they be as successful in the business world as they were in school. — X — It has been noticed that the Sophs are making it hot and heavy for the other classes in the class baseball league. Watch out. Juniors. — X — We wish to thank all teachers who THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC have made the past year a success both socially and educationally. However, we especially wish to thank Miss Davis, Eoom 4; Miss Garland, Eoom 7; Miss Johnson, Eoom 8, for their untiring ef- forts as home room teachers. — X — This year sees the passing of some of the best athletes who ever crossed the threshold of our honorable institution. — X — At the recent Soph’s social a special- ty dance act by Miss Marie Todd was greatly appreciated by the students at- tending. — X — At the Middlesex Track Meet the Sophomores collected eight of Stone- ham’s thirteen points. — X — Congratulations to “Doc” Gordon in winning his second championship, but he would certainly have had a hard task without certain Sophs. — X — Here’s hoping the present Junior class will be as able as our worthy graduating class was as a domineering class of S. H. S. — X — Sport socials have become a quite popular form for a social. — X — It’s a good thing that the Senior class is not superstitious. Graduating on Friday the 13th. — X — As the days of our first year up in the high school come to an end, we think of all the happy hours we spent. Yet there is hardly one who wishes to repeat them. We’re hoping next year’s Sophs and Seniors will make a good shell to hold the noble Class of ’32. — X — Home Room 32 Notes Our homo room officers are : Iris Kelman, President; George Grover, Vice President; Donald Grundberg, Secre- tary; Carl Weiss, Treasurer. — X — We are glad to welcome Ethyl Jen- kins who comes from Scituate, Mass. — X — The so-far undefeated Home Eoom 32 baseball team has played these games: Home Eoom 32, 16 — Home Eoom 33, 12 Home Eoom 32, 10 — Home Eoom 34, 5 Home Eoom 32, 13 — Home Eoom 33, 12 Home Eoom 32, 23 — Seventh Grade 13 All the plaj ' ers have shown co-opera- tion which enables us to have such good results. — X — Class Notes Room 25 New officers were elected during the month of May.
