Are we modern? Tlie cosmetics, the modern conveniences of our homes, the knowledge of surgery, and all the other things we are so proud of were known to the Romans, the Greeks and the Egyptians. Pompeii discloses, bit by bit, that steam furnaces and glass windows were part of the better homes. But, after all, are we modern? De- cidedly, we are. The Romans, the Greeks, the Egyptians buried their art, and handed down no knowledge of many, many inventions. If a man, en- lightened by the discoveries of his fel- low men, invents something, the credit is due to him, not to an early inhabitant of Asia Minor. If a person, by chance, makes a beautiful vase, which about three months later finds its counterpart in the ruins of Pompeii, should it be any the less admired? No, it was from the beauty of his own soul that it came. We are not just reviving their skill, we are creating for ourselves. We are modern. Marjmnn Curran ’33. PATHS Did you ever think, while strolling down a shadowy lane or climbing to some high summit, that a path could have personality? This thought first crossed my mind one day after an ex- ploring tour through the White Moun- tains. Like people, no two paths are alike and, like all individuals, each path has its own individuality. Paths circling ponds or lakes, garbed in moss and overhung with willows, sug- gest the happiness of solitude and peace. Rugged paths through thickets, wind- ing paths through heavy undergrowth, steep ascents to hill-tops, can not help but bring a thrill of fascination and ex- pectancy. Then, too, there are those paths, sometimes bordered with ferns, or perhaps made gallant with decora- tions of garlands, strewn in nature’s inimitable way, which seem a blending of perfect harmony. Orderly garden paths, still another type, bring forth the security of highly modernized domesticity. But, finest of all, most outstanding in character, is the mountain trail. Faint sometimes, as it winds its way to the summit, it is distinguished by the white blazed marks of the rangers on near-by pine or hemlock. This mountain pathway suggests a thought. It is one of nature’s great se- crets. Only through hard work can you reach the top and your desired goal. Mary Bickum ’32. FRIENDS I’LL NEVER FORGET “When I was a child I thought as a child, I spoke as a child — ” and I might add that I read as a child. On my ninth birthday I was given a set of five red and gold-bound books. They dealt with the life of one “Flaxie Frizzle.” Flaxie was a sweet, golden- haired little girl and I just lived her joys and troubles, her mishaps and mis- takes. I read and re-read those books by the hour. However, I’m afraid the only lasting impression they made on mo was a burning desire to have golden hair. After reading “Black Beauty” I was filled with a keen sense of justice and the need for humane treatment for horses. I told my farmer uncle that he was a bad man to make his horses pull a load of hay. My uncle gently remind- ed me that I liked to ride on loads of hay, so I didn’t press the point. Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women” Series really did me lots of good at the time. I imagined myself in the shoos GRADUATION NUMBER of slangy, hot-headed, lovable Jo, and I also copied some of her good traits. My mother was quite delighted when I counted to one hundred before begin- ning battle. “The Curiosity Shop” impressed me so much that, ever since, I have had an unreasoning prejudice against dwarfs. Last year I read “The Keeper of the Door.” It is one of the most fascinat- ing books I have ever read. I am read- ing it now for the fourth time. The characters are real, vital people and as for the hero — well, I admire him tre- mendously. Part with my books? Hardly! They are my truest, most dependable friends. Doris Bowser ’32. MY FIVE FOOT SHELF. Lately I have been thinking quite a lot about the books I would like to have on the shelf in my room. I have about two hundred children’s books, but, except for a novel or two, I have as yet no others. First of all in the list would come the Bible, which, of course, I have. Next I would choose the “Rubaiyat” of Omar Khayyam ; there is such a wealth of wisdom and pleasure in that. A set of Shakespeare would, of course, be indis- pensible. No library could possibly be complete without the Immortal Bard. Now, perhaps, you will guess my par- ticular interest in life, when I admit that I should next admit to my shelf “The Life of Anna Pavlowa,” and Isa- dora Duncan’s “My Life.” These two greatest dancers of all time are my ideals. They have captured my imagi- nation just as they did the imaginations of all who saw them dance their wonder- ful impersonations of color and rhythm. Now for my poetry! I would wish to possess the poems of Dorothy P arker, for their irony and wit; the poetry of the Indian Tagore, for its filigree beauty; the beautiful love lyrics of the Englishwoman, Sara Teasdale. Carl Sandburg also appeals to me, for he al- ways sees life from so many angles. Louisa May Alcott and George Eliot are my favorite novelists. Of course they can’t be compared, and yet — Last of all, I would have a little leath- er-covered book in which I should place the poetry written by my friends. This, I think, I should treasure most of all. Virginia Williams ’32. “PLUS ULTRA” “This Far and Farther,” is the motto of the class of ’32. How many of us will be inspired to go farther? Fellow classmen, take this motto and put it away in your mind, never to for- get it. This is a final challenge to each and every one of you : You have gone this far; do you intend to go farther? You are gathered together today, as one asesmbled body for the last time. For twelve years, you have progressed under the title of “Class of ’32.” After tonight you will be but a class of the past. All your small victories and de- feats, all your glories and honors will be forgotten. You have worked hard and played fair for twelve long years, striving for the honors which you will receive today. You have arrived this far. The final aim is for you to go farther. To some of you, S. H. S. will be your only Alma Mater. Make your Alma Ma- ter proud of you! The height of your future careers lies on the foundation which you have had. Everything that you are had its beginning and development here. Carry these early ideals with you and cherish them as something sacred. Above all, remember that the “thing” man calls character is of vital impor- tance. You have already laid the basis of your character. As you go farther you should raise it to even greater heights. Do so, to such an extent that S. H. S. will recall you as one of the best of the Class of ’32! M. B. ’32. TO A MOUNTAIN Little I ask, for little I have, My wants are very few. I only wish that I might have A pretty view of you. I care not for a mansion Or a castle tall; I only wish for a hut of logs Where I can keep my all. Some men wish for riches ; Others wish for fame. Some men try hard to attach A title to their name. I only want my humble hut To take my troubles to, Where I can sit and dream and have A gorgeous view of you. Pauline Miller ’32. 3 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Cii ' abiTatton J bbrfss GEOBGE WASHINGTON ' S POWERFUL CHARACTER “Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth upon this conti- nent a new nation” — . Such, we all know, is the beginning of Lincoln’s Ad- dress given on the battlefield of Gettys- burg, To what other man than George Washington could Lincoln have been referring, when we realize that no man exercised, or exercises now, more influ- ence than he on the people and govern- ment of the United States of America? What character stands out more vividly in the minds of Americans than Wash- ington ? A recent American historian has said that “General Washington is known to us, and President Washington; but George Washington is an unknown man.” Washington’s character has ex- erted so much power that he stands in our minds as a myth and not as a man who once had life ! Such an attitude toward Washington is, of course, a trib- ute. Still, we sliould not lose sight of the fact that, although he was great as a soldier, equally great as a statesman, and greater as a leader of men, he was greatest of all as a mere man. Thus we must regard him in his capacity as a man before we can understandingly dis- cuss his life and character. Washington’s power of character came to the fore even in his earliest boyhood. He was well liked by all his friends and soon was regarded by them as their leader. His famous rules of conduct were written at the age of thirteen. Then we foll ow him into early youth, and discover that he was given his first job of surveying a tract of land by an Englishman, Lord Fairfax. His char- acter was responsible for his gaining i this position, because Fairfax, an expe- rienced man of the world, saw in him not merely courage and ambition, but a great number of finer qualities. A short time later his military career had its beginning and, because of his courage and trustworthiness, he was ap- pointed lieutenant-colonel of Virginia’s militia to oppose the French, After suc- cessfully repelling the invaders, the at- tempt was made to put him on an equal level of importance with the other offi- cers of the Virginia militia. Washing- ton resented this because he was nat- urally proud, and also on the ground that he was the only officer who had seen any fighting. He therefore resigned his commission. From this point we pass over the re- maining years of his military career and we see him again as the master of Mount Vernon. When we think of Washington as guiding the destinies of a young nation, we cannot imagine him being concerned very much about so- cial life and agriculture. Yet, such was the ease, and a visitor to Mount Ver- non is known to have said that Wash- ington’s greatest pride was to be thought the first farmer in America. Washington himself once wrote: “Agri- culture has ever been the most favorite amusement in my life,” and it is a fact upon which historians agree that Wash- iigton was never happy away from Mt. Vernon. He divided the majority of his time between the entertainment of numerous guests in his house and the cultivation of new plants in his garden. Such is a glimpse into the very marked home life of a seemingly stern states- man. 4 GRADUATION NUMBER Heedin " the call of his nation, he left the quiet life at Mount Vernon to as- sume command of the Continental for- ces and to tight for the independence of the United States, In this, as in no other case, Washington showed himself to be a competent leader of men. The army of which he took charge was un- organized and undisciplined. Therefore it might have seemed an impossible task to some to prepare it for fighting. But Washington was patient and tact ful, although sometimes irritated, and successfully organized and equipped the arm 3 Like Napoleon, Lee, and many other great commanders, Washington stands out for the devotion which he in- spired in his men. He returned this devotion and added to it a comprehen- sion of their d ifficulties and sorrows which they could not reciprocate. This is ilustrated in a portion of a letter which Washington wrote to the Penn- sylvania legislature. It was in reply to the demand that the army stay in the field and not go into winter quarters at Valley Forge, It reads as follows : “I can answer those gentlemen that it is a much easier and less distressing task to draw remonstrances in a comfort- able room, by a good fireside, than to occupy a cold, bleak hill, and sleep under frost and snow, without clothes or blankets. However, although they seem to have little feeling for the naked and distressed soldier, I feel super- abundantly for them, and from my soul I pity those miseries which it is neither in my power to relieve or prevent.” His soldiers knew that he felt for them and that he did for them all that was humanly possible, and for him they suffered as they would for no other leader. At the end of the war it was through his influence that Congress re- luctantly paid the claims of his soldiers. Washington to the very core por- trays patriotism! This characteristic is brought out when he is called from a peaceful retirement at Mount Vernon to become the first President of the United States. It required only a short moment of indecision for him to make up his mind and on April 6, 1789, he left Mount Vernon for New York. Washington, as he started out on this great venture, did not have as much con- fidence in himself as the people did. This is revealed from a notation in his diary: “I set out for New York, with the best disposition to render service to mj " country, in obedience to its call, but with less hope of answering its ex pectations.” He was greatly moved, and profoundly saddened by his trip to New York. To his constant friend, his diary, he confided that the ovations filled his mind with “sensations as pain- ful (considering the reverse of this scene, which may be the case after all my labors to do good) as they are pleas- ing. And so, from his own writings, we find that Washington started out as President with an inferior opinion of his ability. We gain from his activities, once he had put his hand to the helm, that this state of mind was soon con- quered and the building of a foundation for the United States was carried on without a mishap. This was made pos- sible only through Washington’s cour- age and steadfastness in overcoming the handicaps which the French Revolution and European War caused. But for the confidence of the majority of the voters of the Unitde States in President Wash- ington as an npright, truthful, able, and courageous man, the Republic would never have weathered the storm. What wonder then that George Wash- ington occupies an unique place in the hearts of the American people? Their respect and admiration for him are un- bounded. Washington was recognized as a truly great man, not only in the newly organ- ized United States, but also in Europe. The Prussian Emperor Frederick the Great, admired his military ability im- mensely. Even his late opponent. King George III, paid him a compliment dear to Washington’s heart, when he wrote that he considered him the foremost ag- ricultural expert in America. No greater patriotic test ever came to any man than what many consider Washington’s greatest achievement; the formation of a permanent national gov- ernment from the chaos and wreckage of the Ante-Revolutionary Period. Rupert Hughes, the novelist and his- torian, started out to destroy the Wash- ington tradition. He considered Wash- ington had been over estimated and de- sired to destroy what he believed to be a fictitious character. At the end of the second volume he confessed that, be ginning his work in a spirit of irrev- erence, he had come, through association with him, to acquire a respect for the character of Washington which amount- ed to veneration. I shall not attempt to add further eulog 3 ' to Washington. That would be 5 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC idle in this year of his Bicentennial Celebration. I shall conclude therefore with the simple statement that Wash- ington’s memory will always be a price- less heritage for every true American. Eichard Hunt of Mr. Watson, Classmates, Parents, Teach- ers and Friends: Life, it seems to me, is chiefly made up of first things and last things, the first being made for the last, and the last always leading to a new first thing. It was indeed a happy day when first we entered the High School upon a wave of enthusiasm, fully acknowledged as students in a new endeavor. Time has not been heavy on our hands when we realize that today we are welcoming you to this, the conclusion of what was once a thing far off — education. What the new thing will be, some of us know, and some do not. In any ease each one trusts it will be something worthy of endeavor and greater in achievement. Up to this point we have been facing and solving our own little problems and have helped our classmates in the solution of theirs, but today the bonds which have held us so closely together will be severed. Some will take the high road and some the low, and with each one will go the happy memories of the close association of teachers, par- ents, and students. How monotonous did some of our school days seem! And yet how unimportant and how easily forgotten these days when one considers : High School days as a whole ! To you, our parents, we wish to ex- press our innermost appreciation for the time, expense, and teachings that you have given so freely, that the burden of the long ascent we are about to make might be made less heavy. We do real- j ize that we have caused you worry, per- haps, and care; that when we brought ! our troubles to you, somehow they were j straightened out and our minds set free I once more. For this we thank you and trust that some day we may accomplish I an end worthy of your interest. I Teachers, we wonder at your patience, j Never did you fail when we came to ; you with problems and with minds that j could not see. Always did you give us i the desired information and advice we ' sought. In our diplomas will be your unseen writing. We deeply appreciate what you have done for us. I Thus Far and Farther, is our class motto. Thur far have we come to the last day of our High School career. And farther we go to a new first thing. I The program for this afternoon has I received much thought for your inter- j est. May you enjoy it and know that I this, the class of 1932, welcome you in I deep sincerity on this, its graduation 1 day. Class istorg Mary Bickum This year has brought us the bi-cen- tennial birthday celebration of one of the greatest men in history. Washing- ton has been looked up to by the stu- dent as an ideal example of mankind, and no wonder, for has not his bravery, his firm but gentle manner, his ability for leadership, and his love of square- ness and fair play placed him on a ped- estal -worthy of recognition? We, the class of ’32, have strived to develop in our personalities these characteristics which we all admire in our national hero. Looking back through our history. I see many incidents wherein these fine traits have been promoted. The class had its beginning in 1929, and although its members, at that time were rather hazy as to the meaning of high school life, they soon organized and elected as officers: Carleton Con- nor, President; James Doherty, Vice President; Pauline Miller, Secretary; and Nora Bagdikian, Treasurer. Through the efforts of Eobert Parks, Chairman of the Social Committee, in planning two enjoyable and successful socials, a feeling of comradeship was aroused, 6 GRADUATION NUMBER which resulted in the formation of a class spirit that has existed ever since. Toward the latter part of the year we made a trip under the supervision of Miss Smith to various places of inter- est in Boston, including the Ginn Pub- lishing Company, the Market District, which, as I remember it, seemed miles long, and the Arnold Arboretum. The next fall saw us really establish- ed officially as high school students. Richard Hunt led in presidency with Miner Taylor as Vice President. Paul- ine Miller still kept the class records, while Muriel Berry took over the finan- cial duties. Carleton Connor varied the social activities that year when he and his committee suggested and carried out the idea of sport socials and novelty dances — a truly bright idea, Carl! We also took part in the operetta, “College Days,” and contributed greatly to the Carnival Fund and Fun, receiving as a reward the class banner, home-room banner, and other individual prizes for ticket selling. One of the high lights of the second quarter was our trip to the Repertory Theatre with Mrs. Mil- ton where “Julius Caesar” was being played. It was then that we realized that an education is gained through other mediums than that of the printed page. This, coupled with the presenta- tion of “The Taming of the Shrew” in our senior year, not to mention our struggles with Mr. Reed, laid the founda- tion for an appreciation for the beauties of Shakespeare. As all good things are bound to cease, the girls of our class had to accept a substitute when our beloved Miss Frazar decided that housekeeping was a far better career than teaching. But, as Washington said when once confronted by a sudden disappointment, “What must be, must.” Therefore, the year drew to a close, a successful year, well spent in making us more capable of taking up the com- ing station of upper classmen. We entered our junior year with an able staff of class officers. This time Miner advanced to the office of Pres- ident. The other executive members took their positions for the first time. Muriel Berry was chosen Vice Presi- dent; Dorothy Tble, Secretary; and Maryalice Newhall, Treasurer. Robert Parks, after a lapse of one year, again resumed his place to lead the social program. Aside from the usual two socials, an operetta, “Miss Cherry- blossom” was put on under the capable direction of Mr. Dalglish. This turned out to be a most brilliant success. In the leading role, Ethel Cameron, one of our classmates, proved herself to be a star of considerable magnitude. The Junior Prom which followed, al- though a social success, was in a finan- cial way very discouraging. The class thought itself to be at the end of its resources. But here the undaunted cour- age of Washington came to our aid, for the thought of the man who could win- ter at Valley Forge and still win through led us to believe that out of failure often comes victory; in our suc- ceeding events this proved to be true. If I have seemed to stress the social events of our class, it is because they, second only to athletics, have been such a factor in developing solid organiza- tion and team work. The time came at last for us to be- come the leaders in Stoneham High. It has been said that to set a good ex- ample you must be one ; therefore, we lost no time in our first class meeting in making ready for the year’s work. There were only two changes in the of- ficial staff. Thomas Finnegan became Vice President, and Margaret McLaugh- lin, Secretary. The outstanding social events of the first semester were the Senior Hop, the operetta, “Jerry of Jericho Road,” -with Alma Patch and Robert Thompson in the lead, and the Winter Carnival which turned out to be the best ever despite the untimely warm weather. The coro- nation, the most delightful part of the program, added much pleasure to the carnival ball when William Chase pro- claimed Gertrude French our popular queen. We paused at the close of the first half of our last year to pay reverence to a teacher who had inspired and brought forth the best in us. Miss Da- vis left us this valuable thought, “What is worth doing, is worth doing well, and anything worth doing well is gained only through hard work.” We thank her ! The excellent production of the sec- ond semester, “The Old Grouch,” our senior play, co-starring Evelyn Lamb and Robert Thompson, brought out new dramatic ability in the class. Then, with the arrival of May, all thoughts turned to the banquet. Longwood Tow- ers seemed the destination, and on the twelfth, with Jimmy Clark as tcast- 7 THE STONEITAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC master, we gathered to enjoy the last get-together before graduation. Because of the bi-centennial anni- versary of Washington, Mr. Thibodeau, our noted Czar, has this year colored and made more interesting our history work by introducing projects pertaining to the customs and incidents surround- ing Washington’s life. Another inter- esting feature of this same type was the recent World Peace Plssay Contest, and happy to say, Eobert Thompson bore off the laurels of the day. Our Commercial Club has been most prominent in its recent undertakings. With Miss Bullukian as a guide, we have enjoyed numerous socials and trips to selected Boston Business houses to ob- serve the office management. Toward the latter part of the year the club held quite an unusual assembly. Its pur- pose was to award type honors, to pre- sent a stop-clock to the Commercial de- partment, and most important of all, to announce the newly founded scholarship fund that is to be given by this organ- ization to business students for future study. Another assembly most interest- ing to the seniors, came with the re- vealing of class honors. To Lewis Parks I and Gertrude French, the winners of the | MacDonald medals, we extend our hearty congratulations. Other honors were bestowed as follows: Graduation Address, Eichard Hunt; Class History, Mary Bickum ; Class Prophecy, Carleton Connor; Prophecy of the Prophet, Thomas Finnegan; and Class Will, Helen Brown and Sidney Allen. One of the finest traits of Washing- ton’s character was his keen desire to perform his duty to the utmost. After he had given all that could be reason- ably expected, he gave more. The mot- to of our class, “Plus Ultra — this far and farther,” is in accordance with that trait. We, too, have tried to give our utmost and then give more. Even though Ave may have fallen somewhat short of our goal, v e still have had the joy of trying to reach it. Now we are ready to face the serious business of life with the courage and faith given to us by our teachers, who have carefully laid the foundation for our future lives. May each one of us attain the heights of greatness and bo roAvarded as Washington Avas bv a rich and honorable life. Thus this school phase of the class of ’32 passes into his- tory. Claes prnplp ' cg Carleton June 1950. I step to my front vesti- bule to pick up the morning paper and mail. I hurriedly glance over che paper, then turn to my mail Avhich at the first glance appears to contain for the greater part advertisements. One letter, however, attracts my attention and arouses my curiosity and interest; the postmark is Stoneham, Massachu- setts, and as all letters from Stoneham, my old home town, are Avelcome, I pro- ceed to open this one, although it bears every outward appearance of an ad, even to the one and one-half cent stamp. Perhaps it is from one of my old class- mates. Quickly removing the contents I find it is a letter from my old pal, LeAvis Parks, who appears to be as Scotch as ever, even to the restricted postage and hotel stationery. But noAv let’s see what LeAvy has to say for him- self. S. Connor New Stoneham Hotel, 1,500 Eooms Avith Baths, Proprietor Eobert E. Thompson. (Well, good old “Bob” Thompson is noAv a hotel proprietor, possibly he sings the guests to sleep, ’cause “Bob” could sing if I remember correctly.) Dear Carl: It is a long time since I have seen or heard from you, but as I haAm been very busy (yes, that ahvays was Lewis’ big line) it has been impossible to write you. I am Avriting noAv to tell you of the 225th Anniversary of the founding of Stoneham which is June 15-20. If it is possible for you to attend the anni- versary celebration I Avould like very much to have you spend that week visit- ing at my home Avith my Avife and me. (What! Leway married. I Avonder who the lucky belle is!) If you plan to i come Avill you please drop me a line as 8 GRADUATION NUMBER soon as possible? During the week there will be held the 18th reunion of the Class of 1932, which is in charge of Helen Brown Pierce, to be held at her beautiful gar- den. Yes, Helen always was interested in flowers. This will afford you a chance to meet many old friends. The hostess- es are to be Muriel Berry Taylor, Vir- ginia Tolman Lovering, and June Yea- ton Barton. (Aha! I see all these school day romances have become permanent ones.) As for myself, I am a professor of English at my Alma Mater, Tufts, and live here in Stoneham, the healthiest city in Massachusetts. I have enclosed an advanced program of the celebra- tion including the pageant program which I thought would be of interest to you. Closing for the present, I re- main. Your friend, Lewis Henry Parks. Well, that certainly was an interest- ing letter. I shall certainly try to take advantage of Lewis’ kind invitation. It is time for me to leave home for my day’s work and I place the program in my pocket. After reaching my seat in the rapid transit I draw it forth to read and on the first page of the pro- gram I find the following statement : “This program was made possible through the kindness of the advertisers. Please patronize their establishments.” Surely some of 1 932 have entered the business Avorld. Now let mo see. Yes, the first ad to meet my eyes was one announcing the drive for a hundred thousand dollars for an addition to the new Memorial Hospital. The staff of that hospital appears to contain many of my old friends, including Richard “Dick” Hunt, house doctor. “Dick” has made quite a name for himself in the world of surgery and medicine. Mary Maguire, Superintendent of the Nurses, and Marion Gilson, dietition, are other members of ’32, and on the list of nurses I find Phyllis Watts, Ethel Cam- eron, Dorothy Lawson, Clarice Varney, Elizabeth Clark, and Elizabeth DiPetro, all former classmates at S. H. S. Please address all correspondence to Gertrude French Hunt was the note at the end. The last I knew of Gert was v hen she w ' as writing her latest book which woas entitled “Hunting the Dicky-Bird in the Wilds of Congress Street,” The next ad is startling to me, “The Quality Lunch,” under the new ' manage- ment of Christine Perry and Robert Parks. My, there must be many an ar- gument between the proprietors if Christine tries to make sandwiches the way Ann O Connor made them back in 1932. “Bob” never could find one of her sandwiches he liked. Glancing down the page I find that Catherine Jackson is now running the Adelaide Gown Shoppe on the corner of Lindenwood Road and Main Street, which is now the downtown district of Stoneham. Directly below this I find a space which reads “With the Compli- ments of Taylor and Taylor and (er) Son. Ah! Yes! I remember reading in the papers a year ago that Miner and Clip had been hired by a man and wife to argue eases against each other at a divorce trial. Miner brought victory to his client W illard Eldridge who was su- ing for divorce on the grounds that his wife, the former Mildred Dempsey, never had his meals ready on time. It seems to me “Milly” used to be late back in 1932 and was almost divorced from Room 13 by Czar Earle T. Thibo- deau. On the second page I find the roster of the parade to be held June 17th. At the head of the line will be the city police force including three of my form- er classmates, namely Captain John Mc- Kinnon, who has followed in the foot- steps of his father ; Edward Haradon, and Milo Temple, the last two men- tioned having finally joined the police force to keep from being arrested for speeding. The marshal of the parade is to be none other than Charles Frost who finds no other w ' ay to keep in the limelight, having failed to become a sec- ond “Shires” on the Stoneham Cubs. It seems that Raymond McKinnon holds the managerial reins of the Cubs, hav- ing received valuable experience back in 1932 and is now being hailed as the Connie Mack of Minor Leagues. The band which will furnish the mu- sic for the parade is under the direc- tion of Bernard Roche of 1932 fame w’ho if I remember correctly was a whole band in himself. Members of the group “Bernie and His Boys,” who were class- mates of mine, are George Adzigian. bass horn, (“Adzie” always had lots of extra hot air and is now putting it to work); William “Red” Brooks, fluter; Eugene Hovey, drummer (yes. Gene al- ways was the big noise of Room 13) ; his side-kick, William (call me Vs illie) McDonough, trumpeteer, and Harold Q THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Hurfl playing an instrument which has taken the place of a saxaphone and call- ed the tinniophone, invented by that great chain store magnet in his spare time. It has been rumored that this was the reason his wife, the former Euth Chapman, left the Finnegan man- sion in Finneganville. (When I was a schoolboy, Finneganville was known as Wright Street. It seems that Tom bought that entire section.) Next in line will come a detachment of the U. S. Army. The detachment is under the command of Colonel Francis Brady, who back in 1932 was receiving his military training as a member of the militia or Company I and the Mas- sachusetts Bay Horse Marines. The parade will have as an added fea- ture many beautiful floats. The first float will be one depicting the slum life of the city, and how it is being bettered by that great social service worker, Doris Bowser. The truck on which the float is to be modeled has been loaned by the Stinson-Jones Chevrolet Com- pany. Jack always was interested in Chevrolet. Bill sells Chevrolets in the winter season as he is now a major leaguer baseball player. The next float is one advertising the White Elephant day at the Wakefield Women’s Shop, located in Stoneham. This float is spon- sored by Anna Apalakis j I mean Anna is still interested in Wakefield). Anoth- er interesting float will show the prog- ress in farming and is sponsored by the foremost farmer of New England, Ver- mont Brock Farnsworth, w ' ho, by the way, folks, is married to Jean Vorbeau. The end of the parade will find George Lirakis in charge of the Boy Scouts. Good old George! He has final- ly decided that there is no life like run- ning a fruit store and having command of th e Boy Scouts. Page three of the program! Perhaps I shall find the advertisements from some of my other classmates. Yes, here is an interesting one. Lincolnville Dairy, proprietors, Kobert Kelly and Edward Donegan. Well, these two prominent young men of ’32 have con- tinued their schoolday labor and are running a dairy. What’s this! a pic- ture labeled “Look what our products have done for this man.” Why (then I rub my eyes), if that isn’t a picture of good old Kolly Hotin. Gosh, he still posesses that big smile, that curly red hair, and is bigger than ever. (I won- der if Eddie Donegan has used his own I products to good advantage.) At the j bottom of the announcement I find the notice that all Bob’s cow s are fed ex- I clusively by the Sidney Allen method, j It seems that “Sid” has at least put one I of his n umerous ideas to work that were I the life of every class session back in 1 1932.) I Still another notice of interest ; I [should say it was: “Compliments of the I Gershivin Studio.” Dorothy Tole and ! Francis McGah are the vocal teachers at j the studio ; if I read correctly, Virginia j Joyce is the instructor of elocution, and I Virginia Williams the dancing instruc- ' tor. There is certainly an abundance of talent in that studio and it is little wonder that some of its pupils have be- come world famous. Still another, the “Paulanson Beauty Parlor,” run by my old classmate, Pauline Miller. I Page four of the program. Fine. Here i is a list of the committees in charge of I the celebration ; surely some of the S members of ’32 are working on these j committees. Yes, I am right. I find I Eobert Craigie chairman of the general I anniversory committee; Alfred Young, (who, by the way, has made a great deal I of money on a new lotion which clears up freckles overnight), and Tony Mele, , who has become a prosperous truck gardener in Stoneham, are also on the I committee. The amusement and ath- letic committee is headed by William Chase, that fine athlete of S. H. S. back in 1932. “Bill” is the athletic coach at I the new 120 room high school on the i former Judge Stevens estate where Mr. j Watson is finishing out his 24th year of service as principal of Stoneham High and on his teaching staff one will find Nora Bagdikian, head of history de- partment; Leah Temple is teaching commercial studies; Eichard Hodgman, i instructor of physics and advanced I math (Dick always was a math shark) ; I Anna Fulton, instructor in foreign language; Jean Quincy, hygiene teach- er, and that mighty “mite”, Maryalice Newhall, girls’ physical education in- structor. Mr. Watson’t secretary is none other than the secretary of the Class of 1932, Margaret McLaughlin, and Evelyn Lamb is secretary to the super- intendent of schools. The rest of Bill’s committee who are members of ’32 are I Marjorie Bickum, in charge of women’s I athletics, and Dorothy Cook, who is to j have charge of awarding the prizes, es- I pecially those to Wakefield athletes. I Next I find the committee in charge 10 GRADUATION NUMBER of the pageant. Austin Cheswell is list- ed as the director and all news from Stoneham brings the impression that “Bert” has replaced the time honored George MacNeil as director in the dra- matic productions held in the City of 8toneham. He is to be ably assisted by Ruth Motyer who is a professor of Eng- lish at Boston University. The lighting effects and scenery are to be in charge of Allen Barton who also teaches art at Stoneham High. The costumes are to be planned by Lucille DeAngeles, whom I met recently in Paris studying de- signing. The hostesses at the pageant to welcome the many visitors include Vera Driscoll, Dorothea Stinson, Jennie Orsillo, Anna O’Brien, Helen Marshal, Ruth Brown O’Laughlin, Ruth Anderson Taylor and Eleanor Russell, who have formed a contract bridge club and hold the United States bridge team cham- pionship. However, I recall a news- paper clipping of a few months ago which told how the combination of Marie Thibodeau and Mary Cody nearly brought the trophy to Woburn, where those two members of ’32 now reside. The music for the pageant is iji the joint charge of Julia Calahan, concert pianist of no little fame, and J. Willis Brown. (How well I remember Bill tickling the ivories on that piano back in that assembly hall of S. H. S. with Mel, Will, Clip, Dick, Bob, and the rest of the gang moanin’ low.) Bill is now directing that famous band, “Joe and his Stonehamites,” with that well known theme song of his, “Building a Nest for Mary.” (You know Mary Dorothy Cor- coran to whom “Bill” says all his success in the world of “Hot Cha” is due.) Mj ' - eyes carry across the program to page five where staring me in the face is another ad of interest. It tells of a tire shop run by John “Tire” Wood. Good old Jack has a special sale on the Prescottian tire which has had univer- sal success and made my old pal, “Nor- mie” Prescott, a well to do gentleman. My, what’s this, Downes and Lovering, Real Estate, Electrical Appliances, and Insurance. The last I knew of these two was when Warren was heading a real estate boom in Florida in a town called Bettyville and Elmer was regu- larly winning B. A. A. marathons. “Compliments of Phil’s Smoke Shop” and although there is no proprietor list- ed one would guess that it is owned by Phil Moody. Fine. Great! Here is a choice bit of news about two of my classmates of whom I had lost track. By the program it appears that these two have opened the “Tillie Craft and Tea Room.” Yes, the proprietors are none other than James Clark and Jane Tilden. Janie takes care of the art craft and Jimmie the tea and cake. The final page of the program has more in store for me than any other one. The page is headed, “Noted per- sons who will visit Stoneham during the Anniversary.” The first name on the list brings back fond memories. It is that of Wilbur “Bullet” Avery. Wil- bur, as in Stoneham High, is now set- ting the style for the world. What Wilbur wears is the correct thing. I find underneath Wilbur’s name that of Mary Biekum, world famous authoress, who back in ’32 wrote the class history and has just recently finished a world’s history. Next comes the name of Alma Patch who is the Prima Donna of the Chicago Opera Company. Then the name of Kenneth Hanson, my old pal, “Ken,” has made quite a name for him- self as a research chemist, which has brought to light his real talents now recognized by everybody. I see by the program that Rosa Marie Todd will also ])e among the guests. My, how many times have I seen that name blazoned up and down Broadway and always ])righter for each return engagement. How well I remember reading in the headlines; “Marsh and Holmes,” first women fliers to complete air trip around the world. (However, they always W ' ere high minded.) So they too are to bo visitors. But the celebration could not possibly be a success without the last mentioned name on the list, that of Mel Flynn or better known as the one and only stage comedian who could replace Will Rogers in the hearts of American theatre goers. Mel has the cowboy legs, rope, and above all, the face. How well I remember Mel in that last film of his entitled, “The Flynns of West Hancock Street.” Would I take Lewis up on his invi- tation? I certainly will and it will be the first thing I do when I reach my office. It doesn’t seem possible that I could hear of all my classmates in such a short space of time. What a thrill it will be to learn more about each one from his own lips. My fondest dream is about to come true. Good old Lewis and God bless Mel, Fran, Dick, Will, Bob, I Ken, George and all the members of 1932. 11 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC ropl]Pj:g of roplfet Thomas H. Finnegan It is now the year 19G0. In my hand I hold an invitation to the graduation exercises of the class of 1060, Stoneham High School. As I had remained in Stoneham since my gradu- ation and had watched its growth from a mediocre town to a thriving city, I was acquainted with many of the more than six hundred graduates. I accepted the invitation and on the night of the graduation drove my car to the sumptuous auditorium connected with the new high school. As I stepped from my Austin V-8, my attention was arrested by loud music emanating from a noiseless autogiro now descending to the spacious parking grounds. A man with blue trousers and a long swallow-tailed coat alighted. His ap- pearance would arouse curiosity in any community. His heavy, black beard, and stovepipe hat formed the subject of many comments from nearby people. He was truly a second edition of Kip Van Winkle. After turning and mak- ing a complete survey of his surround- ings, the strange-looking person strut- ted toward the auditorium with a gait that was strangely familiar. I entered and listened to the cere- monies connected with the graduation, but my thoughts were centered upon the individual who had so majestically ap- peared from the skies. It seemed as if I had seen the walk before. My thoughts were soon confirmed when he was introduced as Carleton Sheffield Connor, professor of history at Dartmouth College. After he had finished his address to the graduates, I rushed to congratulate the ‘Tocal boy who made good.” Carl informed me that he now held the de- grees, B. O., and T. N. T. He was go- ing to spend a short vacation in Stone- ham and informed me that Catherine and the family were coming in a few days. Clast uf utljeiittc taff 1031-1932 We, the retiring members of the S. II. S. Authentic Staff, being of sound mind and body, do hereby bequeath our beloved paper, in the interests of which we have labored for the past year, to the staff which is destined to take hold of the reins during the ensuing year. We have faith in their ability to carry on the great work which was started fifty years ago to keep the people of Stoneham and outside towns informed about our school activities. Now these activities must cease, as far as our class is concerned, and our only hope is that our memory shall not quickly pass away and that the Authentic may have a year of great success under its new directors. To Mr. Eeed, without whose help our paper could not have been a success, we offer our heartfelt thanks. Signed, The Authentic Staff of 1931-1932. ast pitll anb ' ®i’stamcnt of tl|e Ollasa of 1932 We, the Senior Class of Stoneham High School, in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty- two, being of sound mind and body, do hereby dispose of our earthly posses- sions and do hereby proclaim this docu- ment to be our last will and testament. Item I — We hereby request that a permanent fund be established for the sole purpose of buying new chairs for ■ that mighty atom, Mr. Reynolds, our chemistrj " teacher, in ease, in the course of strenuous teaching in the future, hjs may break again as it has in the past. Item II — To that famous Czar of Room 13, namely, Mr. Earle Thomas Thibodeau, we extend our most sincere hope that in the future his requests for new furniture for Room 13 may be ' granted in not over one week. 12 NORTH SCHOOL CLASS OF ’32— FOURTH GRADE GRADUATION NUMBER Item III — We hereby extend to the Juniors our deepest sympathy for the loss of the most noble, illustrious and wonderful example we have given to them for six whole years. We hope they may carry on in spite of the loss and attempt to strive without us. We also extend our sympathy to our teach- ers and Principal for the loss of their “smartest” class, which has had the largest honor group yet. Item IV — It is our most urgent plea to the would-be Seniors of ’33 to take compassion on the faculty and let them go home at 1.30. Follow our wonderful example and don’t pass notes, have hysterics, or bombard blackboards, so you won’t have to stay after school. Item V — To Mr. Reed, we extend the hope that next j- ear he may keep the perfect faith he kept in the classes of ’32, and that ’33 may do their home- work as faithfully as we have done ours. Item VI — We request that each morn- ing at 8.10 and for 1 % minutes, the home rooms be silent in memory of the incomparable class which has passed on to other spheres. In witness whereof, we, the Class of 1932, the testators, of this, our last Will and Testament, do set our hand and seal on this seventeenth day of June in the Year of Our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-two.

He had not been there before, but was guided by his brethren who had preceded him. He had started unwillingly upon this jour- ney. Yet he had accepted it without a complaint. The path had been lonely, but companionship was promised at the end. A little wave of homesickness pos- sessed him. It made his mind easier when he saw a great gate as high as the heavens. He broke into a run. His thoughts out- ran him and he remembered the family he had left behind. The scent of dogs who had arrived before him grew very strong. They were in a hugh circle by the side of the entrance. Big, little, curly, thoroughbred dogs, dogs of every age, were there and all were apparently waiting for something — someone. He had remembered a sign that said, “No dogs allowed.” He feared that this j was why they were sitting outside the I gate. As he bounded up the last hill, I he could see beyond the entrance a great j mass of people. Yet, no dogs crossed ! beyond the gate. He now advanced cautiously to ex- amine the gate. He did not wish to make himself ridiculous by trying to I bolt through this invisible mesh. What I had they done on Earth? Had they I stolen bones, runaway days, slept on the best beds until the key had clicked in the lock? These were sins. At his moment an English Bull Ter- rier approached him, sniffing the Air- dale’s collar. Then he fell to expressing 1 his joy at meeting him. IS GRADUATION NUMBER The Airdale did not know what to make of all this. “I know you! I know you!” exclaimed the Bull Terrier. “What is your name?” “Tam O’Sammy, they call me Sammy,” was the answer. “I know them,” said the terrier. “Nice folks, best there are.” He stop- ped scratching a flea which was not thei-e. “Oome for a walk,!” was his friend’s invitation. “Aren’t we allowed here?” asked Sam, looking towards the gate. “Sure, you can go inside, if someone comes for you. I like it better outside.” “Any old dog can see it’s better be- yond the arch.” “Maybe, but you see we are waiting for our folks.” The Airdale gasped, “I felt that way when I was coming up the road.” “Don’t be discouraged.” comforted the terrier. “It’s interesting watching the arrivals. See, there’s something doing now.” A young child was coming up the road and was afraid. As the child stopped, a yellow hound came to his feet and said, “So long fellows, I must go; you see I’m all she has up here and she’s young.” “That’s the way we do it up here,” the terrier said proudly. “Yes, but what about the nobody dogs?” “Oh ! they go to the boys who have wished they had a dog, but whose fath- ers wouldn’t let them have one.” The Bull Terrier laughed. “You’re pretty near earth yet, aren’ t you?” Tam even admitted it. “We can’t see very well after dark so I sleep near the path.” For a little while they went on in si- lence, but as evening fell and the light from the Golden City faded, the Bull Terrier said, “You will introduce me to the boy if he comes this summer? There has been a lot of them this year.” “I shall be proud to do it,” answered the Airdale. And so, with muzzles sunk between their paws and with their eyes straining down the Pilgrim’s Road, they went out- side the gate. Clifford Hupper ’35. A FIRESIDE VIEW OF COUNTRY FOLK. I am the wide hearth of the old homestead fireplace. The feeling of Spring has seeped into my bricks and I am eagerly awaiting the Summer, when so many good, simple folk come and go through both doors of this old home of mine, the largest kitchen for miles around. The men usually sit right down on me and stretch their legs straight out in front of them. There’s only one man I think of off hand who requires a chair to sit in. I don’t blame him much, because for him to get down so low, with his bulk, would be quite a propo- sition. One day I wondered just how much bread he ate with his meals, so I counted. Besides plenty of sweet corn and potatoes, he tucked away seven large slices of white bread. This man is past middle age and his favorite oc- cupation, when he isn’t reading True Story magazines, is looking at Sears Roebuck catalogues. But I shouldn’t tell about the least pleasing first. By way of contrast the hired man, naturally one of my most frequent visitors, is very tall and ang- ular. His hair is white, although he is only thirty-two. Below his horn-rim- med glasses his swarthy face is flecked with white between Saturday night shaves. This man has been supporting himself since he was nine years old. He bought a motorcycle last summer and learned to ride it in the hay field. He and the man for whom he works kept track of how often they fell off on their numerous trips to the village. The man of the house is a young man who has just taken over the family homestead, after his careless elder broth- er had let its condition run down and its debts run up. He is a heavy man, tall and well built. He is kind to his animals and takes epecial pride in his five, red Herefords. Just before the fair last summer I had a visitor whom I shall never for- get. He was a stout man, this side of fifty, alive and enthusiastic. His most outstanding feature, however, was his roar of mirth. When I am in the deep- est gloom, if I hear a roll of thunder in the distance which seems to contain all the joy and happiness in the county, I involuntarily cheer up and find my- self hoping that this real man will come into the kitchen. I just wish you could hear him laugh. Another man who enjoys a good joke is the first handsome fat man I have ever seen. His black hair curls over his forehead, in spite of his use of vaseline on Sundays and fair days. His twinkling eyes betray him when he tries 19 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC to tease. Though he is married now, he was once a rival of the man of the house — in love. How I hate to have him come near me, that brother who formerly owned the homestead. I didn’t need to see him to recognize him. I merely had to hear him. I have never heard him say a whole sentence without including two ; or three swear words. No, I don’t con- i sider him ill-tempered. He’s profane i even wdien he is joking. The habit is so strong that he can’t help indulging. His vocabulary of profanity isn’t large | either. He repeats himself continually. | Just the same, common swear words, | which he uses as adjectives to modify all the nouns in the sentence. Just one more of my cronies and I’m done. Sam is only twenty. He hap- j pens around whenever he’s out of a ! job. The minute he gets near me his tongue starts wagging, if not in speak- ' ing, then in eating. Sam loves to feed me, too. He does choose such lovely logs and, oh yes, they ' re always birch, i So now you know some of my good, | country folk. They’re interesting visit- ors, I think. They tell stories to me. i Sometimes they roast apples on my hot ; bricks. Is it any wonder that I look forward to their coming again? i Nancy Blanchard ’33. NEW YORK INTERLUDE. The winter wind, cruel with cold and laden with city dust, clawed at the hurrying people. A traffic policeman’s whistle blew, heavy buses rumbled by; j the screech of brakes and staccato toot- i ing of horns turned the walled canyons i of the city into a scurrying bedlam. I The unemployed, selling their trivial | wares of rosy-cheeked apples and brown, | crisp chestnuts, huddled in their shabby ! garments — so inadequate against the | wintry blasts. j A silver-haired, frail, saintly-looking old man and a narrow-chested, coughing j youth stood side by side. " How do you feel now, mister, since you got that cup of coffee under your belt?” ‘• ' Oh, a great deal better, thank you, son,” replied the man quietly. " That’s the stuff. How about a ham- burger sandwich for dinner? That ought to put a back-bone in you.” ‘•Thank you, no. You have been too kind already. I appreciate all you’ve done.” " Oh, forget it. Listen, if I can get a job I’ll see that you’re left fixed. You and me will be buddies. I used to play in an orchestra in the theatre over on thirty-third, but when the talkies came in, we went out. Yeah, it was a tough break, but I’ll get another job and get rid of this cough and everything will be O. K.” The old man remained silent. He was trembling now and his breath came in short gasps. The youth, concealing his cough by a smile, turned to wait on a tall, handsome gentleman who carried a cane and limped slightly. His grim feat- ures relaxed into a smile. He chose an apple and deposited a dollar on the stand. When he came to the old man’s stand he chose a bag of chestnuts and left another dollar. The next day was clear with a merci- less cutting wind. The boy noticed the gentleman who had been so kind the previous day, standing on the opposite corner, eying them queerly. When the boy looked again, he was gone. " Queer bird,” he thought, " but he’s a regular guy.” The day went on. It got colder, the wind blew bits of dust and grime into one’s face. Then the old man fainted. There was the usual commotion and the clang of the ambulance, the curious people, the white-coated orderlies, and then the policeman’s whistle to clear way. The next day the youth again took his stand, a solitary figure. His cough had grown worse over night. He felt a hand grip his thin arm. It was the man of the previous day. " Where is the old man who was here this morning?” " Oh, him,” answered the boy with an attempt at a smile. " Gee, I’m glad, the old bird had the luck to pass out this morning.” " You don’t mean he is dead!” " No, he just passed out. All gone. This is a pretty tough game for an old boy like him. But he’s gonna eat reg- ular meals and be warm for a couple o’ days, and how!” The man’s set features became soft- ened and he muttered to himself. " He just passed out from the cold and hunger and no place to go.” Then he said aloud, " Where did they take him?” " To the Bellevue.” " Do you know his name?” " Gosh, now mister,” reflected the 20 GRADUATION NUMBER youth, “I don’t, and I was pretty friend- ly with him too. He was a nice old feller.” The boy started to cough. “Here,” said the man opening a fat wallet, “go and get some attention for that cough and look out for yourself.” “No sir, I ain’t accepting charity. What I want is a job and a chance to eat regular.” “Mind telling me the particular brand of depression?” Maybe I could do some- thing for you.” The boy flushed slightly. “Oh, that’s easy. I used to play in an orchestra.” ‘Canned music put you out. eh?” “Yeah.” “I think I’ll be able to help you a bit. I’ll see you tomorrow. Meanwhile look out after yourself.” “Say mister, why are you doing all this for me? You must have a bank fulla dough or something.” The man’s features relaxed and he said w’ith emotion : “When I was your age, I had a chance that you haven’t. You see my father und I didn’t agree, though he gave me everything. I left home and in the past years I’ve become rich. I beat father at his own game. I’ve never heard of him since. “Now I’ve learned that you can’t enjoy a fortune alone. Not if you have a conscience. I’m going to see that those who most deserve happiness get it. That old gentleman in the Bellevue is going to have every earthly pleasure I can give him and every comfort pos- sible, as he should have had all his life.” “Why gosh, mister, you hardly knew him. What are you going to do al that for? And he was a proud old guy. I don’t think he’ll accept anything.” And then without a trace of emotion the man said grimly, “I think he will; I used to know him fairly well. You see, he is my father.” Claire Wells ’34. Prof.: Frankly, Madam, what your son lacks is brains. Lady La Dedah: Well, obtain them for him immediately and send the bill to me. Nothing shall stand in the way of my son’s education. Husband: How would you like to be the widow of a man who just left his wife a half million dollars? Wife: Now, dear, you know I’d rather be yours. CHOOSING A CAREER High School graduates in large num- bers, either immediately after complet- ing their high school courses or even after they have acquired still further cultural education, find themselves mak- ing the decision to seek positions in business rather than in the professions, in order that they may the sooner be- come financially independent. At such times both high school and college grad- uates are face to face with the same difficulty — that of persuading employ- ers that they possess qualifications which may be developed into valuable business assets. Should you choose to enter Business as your vocation, it would be well for you to take an inventory of your assets, and consider whether or not you can offer an employer anything that he would be willing to purchase. Assuming that in addition to your education you are possessed of such valuable assets as good personality, ini- tiative, willingness to work, etc., have you that which in the eyes of the em- ployer is absolutely essential — a satis- factory knowledge of the fundamentals of business practice, without which your other qualifications are of little value in the modern business office? Lack- ing such training it is almost impossible to secure admission to a business office ; much less to meet successfully the se- vere competition of those who with less cultural education yet are possessed of a practical knowledge of business funda- mentals. Young men and young women who may be interested in training for suc- cessful careers in business will find it to their advantage to write to Principal L. O. White, Bryant Stratton Com- mercial School, 334 Boylston Street, Bos- ton, for information regarding Business Administration or Secretarial Courses. The Summer Session opens July 5; the Fall Session, September 6. Boss: So you want the afternoon off to go to your grandmother’s funeral. Boy: Y-y-yes, sir — that is, if it doesn’t rain. Jane : The man I marry must be a man of leisure. Jim : Then marry me, that’s the height of my ambition. Mac: But, dear, a kiss means volumes. Eddie: Well, I’m not fond of books. 21 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC BASEBALL NOTES This year with only a handfull of veterans, “Doc” fired one of his longest schedules. Downes seemed to be the main stay of the team so he was given the all important job of short stop, j Jones easily took catcher by his experi- , ence with the Cubs last year. Avery i was shipped to the outfield, and with | Connor they kept the garden. Frost,; another Senior, was assigned to first, I while Cornwell, a Junior, took second. ; Third base and the remaining outfield ' positions were constantly changed. ; “Doe’s” main job was to find pitchers. , Faced with the necessity of breaking in an entirely new staff, he chose Hunt, Gross, and D’Entremont with Karakash- ian doing most of the work. Woburn Wins Opener 7-4 In a seventh inning surge, Woburn took the opening (exhibition) game. Karakashian started in the mound but j was relieved in the seventh. Several i errors and some good hits won for Wo- I burn in the seventh. Stoneham had been } leading 4-3 up to then and playing good ! ball. !

Toast- master Jimmy Clark introduced the speakers with many humorous jests and puns which were readily returned by the speakers. (May we mention Mr. Thibodeau’s witty sallies, here?) The chaperones were: Mr. and Mrs. Varney, Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Mr. and Mrs. Na- deau, Mr. and Mrs. Gordon, Mr. and Mrs. Milton, Miss Spinney and Mr. Thibo- deau. The committee in charge was: Thomas Finnegan, Chairman ; Vera Driscoll, Pauline Miller, Kenneth Hanson and Robert Thompson. — X — The class extends to Gertrude French and Lewis Parks its hearties tcongratula- tions as the winners of the MacDonald medals. We wish these two students, who have something to arm themselves with on going out into the world, all the success and victory obtainable. — X — The final Senior GirPs assembly was held June 8th. Pauline Miller led the devotional exercises. The girls had the unusual opportunity of hearing Mrs. Margaret Eggleston Owen speak. The committee in charge was Pauline Mil- ler, June Yeaton and Priscilla Marsh. — X — The recent Memorial Day Services in the High School “gym” were carried out very successfully. The seniors who took part showed unusual ability in pat- riotic service, an indication of what we may expect from them outside the school. — X — The S. H. S. baseball team has certain- ly showed wh at “progression” means. Thanks to the work of “Warrie” Downes “Billy” Jones, “Will” Avery, Charles Frost and hany other seniors the base- ball team showed “fans” how to play a real game. Dorothy Corcoran was elected chair- man of the senior class day. The com- mittee in charge: Carlton Connor, Ruth Anderson and Robert Thompson. Al- though class day is not an affair of the past at the time this is printed, we know it will be one grand success, as all sen- I ior affairs are ! I On June 9th the girls of S. H. S. held i their annual track meet. The girls of the class of 32 have won all the track meets for the past six years. — X — Remember, class of ’32, our motto, “This far and farther.” — X — The Best Class The class of ’32 h as one honor which no other class graduating from S. H. S. has ever had or ever will have. We entered the junior high in 1927, the same year in which Principal Watson entered. We have the rare honor of being the first class to graduate under the total guidance of Mr. Watson. We sincerely hope that we have proven our- selves worthy of such an honor. — X — Miss Holmes : “Mr. Davis, what is one fourth times eight?” Mr. Davis : “Two.” Miss Holms: “Now, Mr. Davis, you can’t make me believe that one fourth [times eight is two!” Mr. Davis : “I am not going to try i to convince you.” ■ — X — It is surprising to note on one occasion during the last of the school term, how ten junior girls obeyed the smallest whim of the senior girls at a moment ' s 27 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC notice. We wonder how these seniors could have possibly trained the juniors to such a depth of meekness and humil- ity! — X — Songs “In the Gloaming’ — Class of ’31. “Sitting on Top of the World” — Class of ’32. “Good-by-blues” — Class of ’33. — X — Mr. Thibodeau was very agreeably surprised at the history projects which the seniors worked out for him. Per- haps the seniors really did endeavor to convince thier czar that they had “it.” “It” certainly went across. Ask E. T. T. — X — For Future Remembrance “Give a man enough rope and he’ll hang himself.” — X — Mr. Thibodeau certainly appreciates ink spilt on his desk during class meet- ings! — All those applying for the posi- tion of “Ink tiller” ask Mr. Thibodeau for references. • — X — ■ The juniors seem to look up at us with an envious air and call us “Happy-Go- Lucky You” — are we seniors? What about the P. G’s. — X — Heard in Biology Mr. G. : If the parents both have brown rves, brown eyes will be domi- nant in the children — and the same way with blue eyes.” H. Brown: “Well, Mr. Gordon, what if you have one brown eye and one blue eye?” Mr. G. : Impossible.” II. Brown: Well, I have.” R. Hunt: Well, she must be a freak!” — X — The Best Class May we note here how kind and pat- ronizing the junior’s have become. Perhaps their kindness comes from the fact that they feel they will soon miss us. We are convinced that their “p at- ronizing air” is assumed because they will soon hold our lofty positions. We sincerely hope they will be able to do it, in the graceful and accurate way which we seniors have accomplished it. — X — Juniors, we bid you “good day” but not goodbye. We hope we have formed a sincere friendship with your class j which cannot be broken in the years to come. May we always remember the ' S. H. S. spirit which we have enjoyed together in our sports, activities and work. We wish the juniors all the luck in the world. Set an even better stand- ard than our class and the classes be- fore us. “Top of the day to you,” juniors ! — X — At the publication of this Authentic the seniors will be together for the last time. We, as one assembled body, wish to bid adieu to the following: the fac- ulty, teachers, coaches, students and ad- visors of S. H. S. We have gone this far, we intend to go farther! — X — Congratulations to the members of the business course for their loyal sup- port of their class officers. Congratu- lations to the class officers of the busi- ness course. — X — We hope that the girls of the incom- ing business course will derive as much instruction, pleasure and enjoyment as we, the girls of ’32 did. — X — Following Mrs. Owen’s advice, the girls of the Commercial Club are striv- ing to “put a little romance in typing.” ■ — X — Who elected our vice president to pa- trol room 3, anyhow? — X — The business course students are proud of the fact that most of the pupils on the honor group were from the busi- ness course. — X — Why — Does Leah Temple insist on doing extra work in accounts? Does John McKinnon dislike writing book reports? Dolly Cook can’t think “what to write on the boy friend’s picture?” Does Christine Perry like to be the “teacher’s waitress?” Does little “Dot” Tole never grow up? — X — Business Course Notes Perhaps some of the inmates of room 13 could enlighten us as to why the “worthy advisor” of the above room is so insistent on having all slips so speci- fically initialed. — X — We have noticed the history projects on the table in room 13. Among the articles were some instruments of tor- ture, namely guillotines. It might be 23 GRADUATION NUMBER profitable for the maker of these articles to take out a .patent and have larp er ones made and then sell them to the teachers. Maybe it couldn ' t be used to advantage at times. How about it teachers? — X — Commercial Awards at High School Awards for efficiency in typewriting were made at an assembly in the high school conducted by the Commercial Club, Weduesday morning, June 1. Following a speech of welcome by the president, Vera Driscoll, and a reading by Virginia Joyce, Dorothy Tole pre- sented Miss Priscilla Bullukian, faculty director of the club, with a clock on behalf of the organization. Howard W. Watson, high school prin- cipal, spoke on the subject, “Getting and Holding a Position.” The typing awards were won by the following. Marie Thibodean, Anthony Mele, Euth Chapman, Ruth Motycr, Anna O’Brien, Dorothy Tole, Margaret Mc- Laughlin, Mary Bickum, Virginia Tol- man, Evelyn Lamb, June Yca.ton„ Ethel Duff, Marion May, Paul Houghton, Alice Farrow, Helen McLaughlin, Anita Isa- belle. Class of 1934 Note of Appreciation On behalf of the members of the class of 1934, we wish to thank our teachers and upper class men for the way they have received and helped us through our first year in Senior High. We hope we have carried out our work as active and loyal members of the Senior High by participating in sport, social, and scholastic affairs. It is our wish that you know our ap- preciation of your help in making for us a happy and successful sophomore year. — X — We are very sorry that Clare Werre has had to leave school because of se- rious illness. May she be with us again next September. — X — “Posterity will replace them,” and from the ranks of “the great class” of 1934.

We all hope there will be even more for the fourth term. — X — Having a librarian for the last two terms has made it much more conven- ient for members of the class. Cur li- brarian is Dorothy Starr. — X — We all appreciate the help given by Miss Pickering throughout the entire year. — X — Room 27 Class officers for the last quarter are: President, Joseph Jenkins. Vice President, Agnes Richardson. Secretary, Esther Bergman. Treasurer, Warren Richards. ■ — X — Room 27 has decided to buy a vase with the class dues for next year. ■ — X — We have now an honor roll hung up with the names of the pupils who are on the honor roll on it. We hope to have more. — X — Room 31 Room 31 has for its officers this quar- ter : President, Marshall Pecker. Vice President, Mary Ringland. Secretary, Carolyn Kedy.

Two lovers lend their silhouette To a silver picture fair. The nightingales are singing And the notes are wafted there. Silver swans are floating On the mirrored lake aware Of the silver tinted beauty And the love that’s everywhere. Virginia Williams ’32. Compliments of Lou Louis Compliments of W. W. Fiske Co. Compliments of Dr. F. E. Park 30 GRADUATION NUMBER EXCHANGES As Others See Us From the “Cub”, Ipswich, Mass.: Your paper shows a gjreat deal of co- operation and work. Come again. From “The Abhis,” Abington, Mass.: Your operetta number is very neatly arranged. We liked your literary ma- terial, especially “Legend.” Your poet- rj’’ is so fine that we were unable to pick out one poem as better than the others. Although your humor is excellent, we suggest that it would appear more im- pressive in a separate department. Could you not utilize some of the empty pages at the back of your magazine? As Others See us Taken from the “School Life,” Mel- rose, Mass.: The following “Ideal Magazine” is a collection of the best features of all the magazines we have received this month : Best Title, “We,” (“Of the School, By the School, For the School”) Gallatin High School, Gallatin, Tennessee. Best Arrangement, “The Record,” Newburyport High School. Best Editorials, “The Enterprise,” Me- morial High School, Boston. Best Literary, “The Authentic,” Stone- ham ; “The Noddler,” East Boston ; “The Record,” Newburyport. Best Poetry, “The Record,” Newbury- port. Best Jokes, “The Argus,” Gardner High School, Beverly, Mass. Best Cuts, “The Record,” Newbury- port. — X — From “The Mirror,” Waltham High School, Waltham, Mass.: Authentic, Stoneham High School, Stoneham, Mass. — Your cleverly humor- ous article entitled “What Is Golf?” was full of cliuckles for us. The com- pleteness of your Sports Department de- serves praise. We think that a group- ing of all your jokes under one depart- ment heading would improve your mag- azine. — X — From “The Tiltonian,” Tilton, N. H. — “The Authentic,” Stoneham High School, Stoneham, Mass. — Winter Issue : You have struck a fine degree of bal- ance between fiction, essay, and news. The amount of “push” behind “The Au- thentic” is evident in the clear, snappy style of its contents. From “The Lawrence High School Bulletin, Lawrence, Mass.: Evolution Once upon a time there was .a Fresh- man who did all his homework, attended all the games, and purchased all the school publications. Once upon a time there was a Sopho- more who went to all the football games and borrowed the school publications from somebody else. Once upon a time there was a Junior who went to the big game. Once upon a time there was a Senior. I felt his soft breath on my cheek And the gentle touch of his hand — His verv nresence near me Seemed a breeze on the desert sand. He deftly sought my lips. My head he did enfold Then he broke the silence with, “Shall the filling be silver or gold?” — X — Dumb : Didn’t I tell you to notice when the soup boiled over? Dumber: I did, it was quarter of two. ■ — X — Teacher: Oh, Eddie, can you tell me the name of the former ruler of Russia? Eddie : The Czar. Teacher: And what was his wife call- ed? Eddie: The Czarine, I believe. Teacher: Then what were the chil- dren called? Eddie: Thej’’ must have been called Czardines. — X — From “The School Life,” Melrose, Mass. : Latin Latin is a language ; At least it used to be. It killed off all the Romans, And now it’s killing me ! All are dead who ever wrote it. All are dead who ever read it. All will die who try to learn it. Blessed death, they surely earn it. ■ — X — Movie star : Dear heart, will you love me when my hair turns gray? Fond one: Why not? I’ve loved you through henna to platinum, already? — X — Customer: I’d like some rat poison, please. Clerk: Will you take it with you? Customer : No, I’ll send the rats over after it. 31 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC From “The Pilgrim Plymouth High School, Plymouth, Mass.: On first looking into Burk’s “Speech on Conciliation,” “Not withstanding the austerity — ” (Now I wonder what that means.) “Aeta parentum jam legere — ” (Well that’s Latin or so it seems.) “Incongruous mixture of coercion — ” Oh, my goodness! My poor hrain! Burke’s “Speech on Conciliation — ” Can I read it, yet be sane? ■ — X — Our Attitude Onward, onward, Oh, Time in thy flight. Make the bell ring Before I recite! — X — From “The Breezes,” West Newbury High School: Line in French: “L’amour, il ne le connaissait guere que par les romans.” (He knew love only through novels.) Bright pupil (translating) : “He knew love through war with the Komans.” — X — Teacher: Bead the next ten pages in History for tomorrow. Sweet young thing: “Oh, gee, and no pictures either.” — X — We don’t know the secret of success, but we’re very much afraid it’s WOEK. — X — From “The Aegis,” Beverly High School, Beverly, Mass. The Magnanimity of Mr. D-n-o-t: Now boys, I know that no other teachers are giving home work to be done during the vacation. Therefore, you’ll have all the time to do mine. I am going to pass out four sheets of paper and I want you to write a theme on one of the fol- lowing subjects, either on “How to Ex- plain the Unexplainable,” or on “How to Unscrew the Unscrewable.” — X — Street Car Conductor: How old are you, my little girl? Little Boston Girl: If the corporation doesn’t object, I’d prefer to pay full fare and keep my own statistics. Have you heard that Abraham Lincoln was born in a house which he helped his father build? — X — The English language is a funny thing. Tell a girl that time stands still as you look into her eyes, and she’ll adore you. But just see what happens when you say her face would stop a clock.
