Through the brambles and thickets of childhood we have struggled, until today we see a wondrous view. A view so vast our young eyes thrill at the grand impressive scene. Before us stretch low, fertile valleys, lazy rolling hills, deep shaded hollows, rugged mountain cliffs. Our more mature eyes identify valleys where almost jungle-like vegetation and uncharted paths will at- tempt to discourage us. There are also many pleas- ant valleys of contrasting significance where the sun shines brightly on smooth, green fields and gay lit- tle winding brooks reflect the sparkling warmth of the sunlight. Some of the days of our journey will be spent in the bright light of certainty while oth- ers will probably be lived in the darkness of doubt. There are hills we must climb. When we reach their summits we will see unfolded before us vistas as startling and strange as the one we perceive from this, our first hill. From some of these hill- tops we will see the sunny valleys of success — from others the dark deserts of despair. These hills will ever challenge us for they will ever reveal to us new pathways leading farther and farther into the great unknown which lies ahead of us. Far in the distance we see a few lonely figures — those who have gone before us. Though we have all reached the first hill together, from now on we must separate, each to find his own path. We will often be lonesome, wishing that we might once again see those with whom we started out. In some far distant spot your paths may unexpectedly cross, or, circling the hills, we again may find our- selves among the familiar places we knew in those happy days when we, all of us, traveled together. Most startling of all these strange new sights and thoughts is the realization that from now on we must determine our own pathways. There are those behind us who have returned home from their journey, telling us of its glories and warning us of its dangers but the years have changed the paths which they have trod. Along the way we will find many who will be generous with their advice. Some of them will be sincere, some of them will be helpful with their wisdom, and some of them in their care- lessness may give us useless, inaccurate advice. From all of this counsel which we will gather on our way we must glean out those few bits which will be truly helpful to us in finding the sure route to our goal. Whether we are lazily roaming through the pleas- ant part of our journey, or struggling with its hard- ships, we must always bear in mind that that for which we are striving is of more importance than anything else along the way. As we gaze on the rising sun of this, our new day, we must remember that that same glorious sun will rise day after day regardless of where our path may lie, that its beauty and warmth will greet us again and again. So, let us wipe the tears from our eyes, put a de- termined smile upon our faces, and start out into that wonderful adventure — Life. 4 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1934 SETTING OUT Now that the time has come for the guiding reins of school-day life to be cast off, our thoughts naturally turn to the future. Plans form them- selves in our minds; then other plans supplant them. Our minds are in a whirl. Procrastination, an en- dowment to all men by nature, has caused us to leave all preparation until the final year, or even the last few months. Our mind, untrained for the ordeal of decisions, wavers, first choosing and then rejecting. All advice is gladly received, yet who are we that we can distinguish good from bad opin- ion? The best advice I have been given is to “drive on.” Make your life energetic. Whatever you attempt, go at it with a will and finish it. Do it in the com- pletest and best way you know. In this way, a suc- cessful, efficient, and useful career may be accom- plished. Don’t be reckless or risk your honor, but keep on striving steadily. Remember, don’t quit or whine about life. It will gain you nothing, for everyone knows that life is what you make it. Life has no room for failure; there are too many others willing to work if you aren’t. If you need money, here is another chance to show that you can strive as hard as the many others who have survived pov- erty as bad as or worse than yours. Hard pulls and steep hills will show your stuff and stamina. Don’t sit down, but pitch in, drive on, and you will come out on top. Success may be a long way off, but perseverance will be sure to bring you to your goal. Dryden said, “Every man is the maker of his own fortune, and must be, in some measure, the trumpet of his fame.” James A. Smith. NEIGHBORS We are told in the Bible to love our neighbors as ourselves. Just as in so many other things, we misinterpret and neglect. We love the neighbor who thinks to sharpen our lawnmower before re- turning it, but we love better the neighbor who uses his own. It would seem from this that we are sel- fish and resent imposition of any sort. There’s a stumbling block, however, in the very emotions of our neighbors. Some are always glad to loan and to help; others delight in rebuff. If this helping-hand philosophy were the only side to the question, many more souls would arrive at the pearly gates. But when we not only cease to love our neighbor but also begin to hate him, our problem becomes more complex. Gossip is the child of long-tongued leisure and in- ventive minds. Neighborhoods , even as nations, di- vide themselves into cliques or parties. One ele- ment is conservative, the other, radical. While the radicals are “throwing” a party, the conservatives peek from behind drawn shades, only too anxious to get an eyeful. Then with bated breath they com- pare observations, striving always to be most vivid. They ignore their lowly neighbors; they are too good for such people. The radicals in turn, after a few snubs from the others, join in common dislike and defence. Their conversations, in turn, breed half truths and gossip. They forbid their children to play with the “stuck- up” conservatives and they flout their indiscretions out of spite. This constant dividing of neighbors can no more be stopped than war itself. It is difficult to remain neutral. But the man who can administer to the needs and whims of both, is the perfect neighbor. James Rich. SELF-CONFIDENCE Self-confidence is not recklessness. It is not the “know-it-all” attitude of the ignorant boaster. Rath- er is it a valuable asset based on a common-sense appraisal of your ability to perform. The quality demands self-control. You must be able to direct your mind and body. The yielder or the weak-willed individual is never able to marshal his own forces effectively. Hot tempers, excessive JUNE 1934 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC 5 appetites, anything that reduces efficiency keeps you from being your best self and prevents you from mastering your destiny. You must be self-reliant. You must not depend on somebody else’s talents. Develop your own. That is why God has placed them at your disposal. Stand by your ideas. Do not be afraid if you are alone. The crowd that is against you today may be with you tomorrow. Popularity comes and goes like gusts of summer wind. If you employ your own resources, you can succeed. Again, you must be prepared to make decisions and to stand by them. Once you have made your choice, stick to it. Do not be carried to and fro by every passing breeze of opinion. If you stop at ev- ery milepost to weigh pros and cons, you will not get very far during the day. Satisfy yourself that you are right. “I will be with thee.” How cheerful an assurance that has been to many persons in times when the outlook was dark and the silver lining was difficult to see! Many a chap has started through college with barely enough money to meet the expenses of the first year. It seemed as if it could not be done. Even before the doubters have ceased to shake their heads, the young doctor, clergyman, farmer, engi- neer or lawyer steps into the ranks of the profes- sions. Therefore, consider your possibilities and treat them as possibilities and be self confident! Viola La Pierre. 6 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1934 PRESIDENT’S WELCOME Donald Blanchard We have been looking forward with anticipation to this day when we shall have finished one step to- ward an education and shall have passed into the ranks of alumni. Your presence here as we com- plete that step is an encouragement to us. We wel- come you, parents, teachers, and friends, to our Graduation Exercises. From year to year, from class to class, you have witnessed us develop. We hope you have seen in us, as the days passed into years, a growth in power and self-reliance, and a drawing forth of our facul- ties that will aid us in becoming better men and women. Your efforts and sacrifices will be repaid by the use of our opportunities to make the world a better place in which to live. We, who are for the first time entering into life’s arena, realize that it is a place of larger opportunity and greater responsibility. Here we have a battle to win. There will be times when we shall look to the achievements and the victories of those gone be- fore us for courage to overcome the obstacles that confront us. We inherit a civilization of more comforts than did our fathers and forefathers. But facing us are greater problems — social, economic and political. There are full years ahead of us, affording oppor- tunity for constructive aid. And so to you — our parents, teachers, and friends, we give assurance that your unrequited toil has not been wasted. The years that are still to dawn will witness our efforts to bring to fruition your fondest hopes for our welfare and success. GRADUATION ADDRESS — MODERN TRENDS OF GOVERNMENT Bernard M. Scully, Jr. We are passing through a period of unprecedent- ed change. We are the living witnesses of one of the most critical periods in our nation’s history. Such a vital period must bring inevitable changes in national affairs. Let us examine the trends of modern thought as they are influencing political, economic, and social reforms in our government. S ' With Woodrow Wilson’s “New Freedom” a new era was ushered into the annals of American gov- ernment. From that time the government has ceased to interest itself solely in political aspects. This new period is one in which the government concerns itself with the regulation of business. The common class of wage-earners is benefited by this change in economic and social policy. The fact that we are truly in a new epoch is borne out by the number of recent changes in our Constitution. From 1913-1933, six amendments to the Constitution have been ratified. Since 1791 when the first ten amendments were ratified as the Bill of Rights, no period has seen such rapid change in our Constitution. These amendments were the natural result of new developments of national life. The original Consti- tution provided for a direct tax proportional to pop- ulation. The Sixteenth Amendment has changed this. The Congress now lays taxes on income ac- cording to amount earned. The reason for this amendment was the fact that the concentration of capital no longer coincided with the concentration of population. The Seventeenth Amendment, pro- viding for direct popular election of United States Senators, superseded the original provision that the state legislatures should choose the Senators. The Eighteenth Amendment, establishing National Pro- hibition, was the result of the entrance of liquor into politics. Because the liquor interests had such a powerful grip on politics, it was thought necessary to abolish alcoholic beverages entirely. The Nine- teenth Amendment, granting women suffrage, was the consequence of their new found freedom follow- ing the World War. The Twentieth Amendment, providing for the inauguration of the president in January and eliminating the " Lame Duck” session JUNE 1934 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC 7 of Congress, is a great step forward. In making the Constitution meet modern American require- ments. The Twenty-first Amendment repealed the 18th which did not seem to accomplish its desired ends. Another amendment which would give Con- gress power to regulate child labor has been ratified by 15 states. The complexity of supervising the welfare of over 120,000,000 people is far beyond the capacity of the President and Congress to accomplish. New de- velopments, bringing new problems, present them- selves almost daily in the nation’s business. The only agencies that can efficiently cope with such needs are duly authorized Federal Boards and Com- missions. The Interstate Commerce Commission has very broad powers in regulating railroads, interstate bus lines, etc. Before its advent, a few large railroads monopolized the interstate transportation of the country. The Federal Reserve Act, called the most important piece of legislation since the Civil War, helps to keep more money in circulation and thus prevents " hard times” caused by a lack of currency. In the infant days of our nation, States Rights was a strongly supported doctrine. Advocates de- manded a weak central government with strong separate state governments. The present trend is rapidly growing away from this. Of late, we have granted our presidents powers which would have seemed dictatorial to Washington and Jefferson. A powerful institution like our present National In- dustrial Recovery Administration would have been deemed tyrannical in those days. Today our great president has gathered about him a group of expert technical advisers. This group of economic experts, many of them college professors, is popularly known as the “Brain Trust.” This “Brain Trust” embodies the spirit of the new age which seeks to extract itself from economic disor- der by the planning and advising of technical ex- perts. In former days the tariff was the great football of politics. As this was the principal government concern with business, much stress was laid upon its provisions. High tariff men appealed to the manu- facturing districts to support high protective rates. Low-tariff men, in turn, appealed to the buying classes with arguments of cheaper costs under a larger free list. The advent of taxes on inheritance, income, and corporations as sources of revenue sup- planted the tariff as an issue. Then, too, the Tariff Commission, established in 1930, with its limited power to change rates, takes the tariff out of the hands of the vote-seeking politician. Party lines are no longer adhered to as strictly as in the past. Congressmen line up on important bills with amazing disregard for party rule. The forma- tion within the party of powerful minorities (such as silver blocs, insurgent groups, etc.) tends to take the government out of the grip of the party and to place it in its rightful place — the hands of the peo- ple. The farmer has ever been a neglected figure in our national life. The Farm Board with its artifi- cial stabilization of commodity prices was not the success it expected to be. No scheme, however, has been left untried to bring the farmer back to his feet. The Agricultural Adjustment Administration is trying to solve the problem of want in a land of plenty. By paying the farmer for the portion of his crop which he plows under or does not cultivate the committee hopes to end the paradox of lack of food for some in the midst of a great surplus. Having gained such headway in national affairs it was only natural that the average American turn his attention to State affairs. The disregard for the wishes of the people in the choice of candidates and the unscrupulous manipulations of politicians in party conventions, brought a revolt against the con- vention system. In 1903 Wisconsin passed the first state-wide primary law. This was soon followed by similar laws in other states. After this came laws safeguarding and supervising the elections more thoroughly. Having won the right to choose their candidates, it was but a logical step for the voters to demand the right to propose legislation to reject laws passed by legislatures. The initiative is a legal provision by which a group of citizens is allowed to propose a new law. The proposed law is voted upon by the entire electorate. If it receives a majority vote it becomes a law. The referendum enables the voter to express his approval or disapproval of a proposed law. In our own state the questions of daylight saving, liquor, and steel traps have come up for the voters to decide. Not only have great changes oc- curred in National and State affairs, but in local government also we have many reforms. Among the most important is the plan of city management. Under this plan, the voters of each ward elect a councillor. The councillors comprise a committee which elects the city manager. It is his task to run the city concerns just as a business man would manage the affairs of a commercial house. He is the nominal head of each department and he may hire or discharge any employee subject to Civil Ser- vice regulations. Because he is appointed by a group and not sub- ject to party, the city manager can devote his en- ergy to the betterment of his city. This plan is finding remarkable success and appears to be the only logical solution of the problem of corruption in large cities. These are a few of the most important tenden- 8 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1934 cies of governmental policy. The great undei ' lying ideals and motivating factors of this new age can be better felt than described. It is with a feeling of pride that we point to re- cent remedial policies and with a great feeling of anticipation that we are looking forward to the great future which lies before us. Let us carry on as nobly the great work of the betterment of our great country as have our fathers. Bernard M. Scully, Jr. TOAST TO THE GIRLS I’ve been asked to give a toast to the girls of the class: to the girls who lent us their homework and borrowed ours, getting A’s while we got D’s and E’s; to the girls who whispered the wrong answer behind our backs and got mad when we did the same; to the girls who made a dull evening duller; to the girls who enjoyed many dances on our feet; to the girls who will be sorry when we separate on June 15th. Here’s to your future health and happiness, may you have as many dates in the future as you had while in High School; may every hour be as full of joy as those spent in the company of the boys; may your boy friend bring you candy every time he comes and may he leave at a respectable hour in a respectable way; may you all succeed in your future profession, opera star, radio star, actress, waitress, bar maid, gigolette, wife, or whatever it may be; may you be as popular with your employers as you have been with your teachers; may you live to a ripe old age and may all your children be prize- fighters. Edward McCarthy. TOAST TO THE BOYS Here’s to the little, and the big and the robust boys of the Class of ’34, Who have spent in Stoneham High School happy- go-lucky days galore; Who have teased us, annoyed us, and pestered And even cheated when they’ve been tested. To tell you the truth — many a book, pay, and teach- er they’ve molested. Of course, in sports they’ve proven their ability — And — believe it or not — some of them even dance with agility, But like an old kerosene lamp, they’re not over- bright. And, frequently they even go out at night! Despite that boys, you’re a peppy gang and true So my toast is — may God speed success and all Good Luck to you! Eleanor Brown. CLASS HISTORY Claire Wells " Lives of all great men remind us, We can make our lives sublime And departing leave behind us Foot prints on the sands of time.” What a true reflection for our consideration as we, the class of 1934, pause to reveal our High School history before we answer the call of the greater world. This cosmos has been a human problem for ages past but we, as the younger generation, have been gaining confidence through a steady climb up a rugged mountain whose pinnacle was this gradua- tion which we have just accomplished. We may call our Freshman year the base of this mountain. We started climbing through the dense thicket and beneath tall, dark trees under the appreciated guidance of the Freshman home-room teachers, Mrs. Barnes, Miss Eastman, and Miss Bullukian. The first executive group which actually served as student guides during the days of faltering steps were: Douglas Connor, President; Eleanor Brown, Vice President; Claire Wells, Secretary; and Robert Holden, Treasurer. Betty Boos was the chairman of the social com- mittee, who successfully initiated us into the man- ner of conducting social affairs. We were represented on the " Authentic” staff by Claire Wells serving as class editor. At the conclusion of this year we felt a little more accustomed to high school life, with the woods at the base of the mountain less dense and the summit more evident. Possibly our meager beginning would provide a more definite elevation of thought at least. When in September we resumed our climb, we found many new heights to scale. The home-room teachers who aided us were, Miss Garland, Miss Fitzgerald, Miss jJohnson and Miss Bullukian. Election of class officers for this term placed the following in office: President, Donald Blanchard; Vice President, Jane Strobel; Secretary, Thelma Ol- sen; and Treasurer, Douglas Connor. The class ed- itor was Claire Wells and Kathleen Kelly was the chairman of the social committee. This Sophomore year was our first in varsity sports. Several of our boys acquired ability in foot- ball, hockey and baseball, giving fine promise for future years. The Winter Carnival was another event in which we could at least take an active participation. The Sophomores certainly did their utmost to promote this gay but profitable enterprise. JUNE 1934 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC 9 Finally the year came to a close, finding us still higher in our ascent. The trees and confusing darkness of the forests were far below us. We could see the horizon revealing a dim line in the dis- tance. But we looked above, saw the ever present heights still before us and said, “We must go on.’’ Vacation over, we started our trek again, assum- ing the responsibilities of Juniors. Miss Spinney, Mr. Reed, and Miss Johnson were the home-room guides. Our class officers were: Douglas Connor, Presi- dent; Edward Breagy, Vice President; Claire Wells, Secretary, and Robert Callahan Treasurer. Mar- garet Barton was elected chairman of the social committee. Our first social of the season was, we were glad to state, a great success. Soon the fall athletic season was in full swing. Several of the girls excelled in field hockey. These were: Jane Strobel, Helen Clark, Ethel Riley and Eleanor Brown. The football season proved the proficiency of many of our class members who found places on the varsity team. The traditional Junion Prom was the big social event of the year. Herbert Bennett was the chair- man of the affair and he had as assistants an en- thusiastic committee. Armory Hall was attractively decorated in green and silver, the class colors, and we were able to say the Prom was a success. At the dance a magazine was issued by us entitled the “Junior Roll Call.” This was the first separate issue ever published, as before it had been a feature of the “Authentic.” The editor-in-chief of this issue was Donald Blan- chard. He capably completed the publication which was a help to our depleted treasury. The graduation of our upper classmen advanced our position according to tradition to serve them as marshals and ushers. The marshals were Jane Strobel and Donald Blanchard, while the ushers were headed by Mildred Shay and Herbert Bennett. After this we had an opportunity to pause and look about us. It was surprising how far we had come. We were standing upon a broad plateau. The ground beneath our feet was firm. Our vision had broadened until the views were unexcelled. But above us were those jagged cliffs of the last hours of our ascent. The pinnacle, cool, untouched, and beautiful, was our goal. Even though we felt secure in the completion of our Junior year, v e realized this security was not for complacent resting but as a footing for our last and most arduous climb. Three months later we reentered the high school proudly bearing the title of Seniors, and having that exalted feeling which we soon lost when we found that to keep our places we must prove worthy of them. Mr. Thibodeau, Mrs. Coy, Mr. Davis, and Mr. Hoyt were the teachers whose home-rooms we en- tered. Our next step was to elect class officers for this most important of all years. Donald Blanchard be- came President, Robert Callahan, Vice President; Claire Wells, Secretary; Peter Savelo, Treasurer, and Jane Strobel, the chairman of the social com- mittee. As the Senior Class publishes the “Authentic” the editors had to be chosen. Jane Strobel became editor-in-chief and Bernard Scully and Herbert Crandall her assistants. The fall football season was at first dishearten- ing in its results but later on those who had shown such promise in Sophomore and Junior years helped ed bring our team’s season to a close with creditable records. The girls’ field hockey schedule results were also an honor to the school. Elections were next held for the Senior Hop Com- mittee. Douglas Connor was elected chairman and his efforts, coupled with those of an ambitious com- mittee, went to make it a social success. In close succession after the Hop came the suc- cessful Mock Trial and the A. A. Circus. The latter was in every sense worthy of the en- deavors of the entire student body. Never before had the gym so swelled its walls to receive the ca- pacity audiences which thronged there, both after- noon and evening. The graduating class of ’33 inaugurated the idea of editing a Year Book. We decided to carry on the enterprise and elected Robert Callahan editor-in- chief of the year book for the class of 1934. Mr. Andrew Flagg was chosen faculty advisor for this publication. Drama was the next field into which we delved and under the direction of Mr. MacNeil presented " Everybody’s Crazy,” a comedy in three acts. Those who took part in this were: Paul Davis, Bernard Scully, Colin Roberts, Jane Strobel, Helen Lister, Natalie Fiumara, Mildred Shay, Edward McCarthy, Kenneth Prescott, Iris Kelman, Ashton Clark, Viola LaPierre, Ethel Riley, Carl Weiss and Robert Ar- nold. The play was, to quote the director, “The best put on in years by any Senior Class.” The closing event of the year was the Senior Ban- quet. This was held May 28, at the Andover Coun- try Club. Edward Breagy was the toastmaster and all who attended claimed to have enjoyed our last assemblage. Now all is over, we are just beginning to grasp the fact that we have attained the realization of our 10 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1934 dreams. The attainment of this height finds us able to see more clearly the world that is at our feet. There are roaring cities, deep forests, turbu- lent streams, green valleys below us. Above are the clouds, white and luminous, which represent the figures of our imagination. We are, then, ready to start the World’s Work. Eagerly we await our part in it and with the help of Divine Grace, we will make histories of our own. Claire Wells. LAST WILL OF S. H. S. AUTHENTIC Be it remembered that I, the Authentic of Stone- ham, in the county of Middlesex and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, being of sound mind and memory, but knowing the uncertainty of this life, do make this my last will and testament, hereby revoking all wills and codicils heretofore made by me. After the payment of my debts and funeral charg- es, I bequeath and devise as follows: To the Class of 1935 the privilege of carrying on my business for another year, on the condition that they surrender this right to the Class of 193G, the following year. Also to the Class of 1935, the Authentic box in the Library. Though not the source of much literary material, the gossip usually contained therein is sure to be of the spiciest calibre. In testimony thereof, I heretofore set my hand and declare this to be my last will this fifteenth day of June in the year one thousand nine hundred and thirty-four. The Authentic. The Authentic Staff desires, in this, our last issue, to thank all those who have helped so greatly to- wards making the Authentic a success. We wish to thank all those who contributed, all who spent such long hours typewriting, all the class editors, the faculty, Mr. Davis, who always gener- ously granted us the use of Room 15 for our meet- ings, and finally all those who supported us so well by buying our magazine. In receding to the background, we wish to thank Mr. Reed and Mr. Hoyt, our advisors, who have done their utmost to make the Authentic a success. We also wish to express our grateful thanks to Mr. Andrew S. Flagg, whose work has greatly improv- ed the appearance of the Authentic. Signed, The Authentic Staff of 1933-1934. THE PROPHECY OF THE CLASS OF 1934 Robert Callahan Dear friends and fellow-members of the Class of 1934: Must I confess that I come before you this even- ing not to present a sure thing but to perform an experiment? Must I confess that in spite of all my thought of the past few weeks, all my sleepless nights, and days of extreme concentration, I have been unable to put into definite and concrete form the pictures of the future which, as class prophet, I had hoped to give you tonight? Instead, I am obliged to rely upon the accuracy of a truly ingenious scientific instrument, the See- ahead-o-graph, to reveal the destinies of the mem- bers of the Class of 1934. We are deeply indebted to Colonel Stoopnagle and his partner, Bud, for it was the inventive genius of these two great scien- tists which made it possible for us to have the in- valuable assistance of the See-ahead-o-graph. Through the medium of this invention, amazing in its prognosticating powers, I assure you, I will at- tempt to present to you a vivid picture of the lives- to-be of the illustrious members of this, our most illustrious class. Before I pierce the veil of the future, however, may I impress upon you the solem- nity of the occasion and may I, in the words of Rob- ert Browning’s immortal Rabbi Ben Ezra, enjoin you to “Grow old along with me, The best is yet to be.” (Starts engine and peers into the See-ahead-o- graph.) It is the year 1960, and the first scene which the See-ahead-o-graph reveals is a large busi- ness center of a prosperous looking community. The vague outlines become more and more clear. I am now able to make out the large buildings and the signs overhead. The triangular arrangement of the business center appears familiar. Alas, can it be the Stoneham Square of the future? Why, yes, it must be. For there in the center of all the traffic, commanding autoists and pedestrians and guiding bewildered children through the maze of speeding autoists, is J. Herbert “Bigfeet” Blinn, commander-in-chief of Stoneham’s finest. Merely a military motion of his hand brings forth a squadron of six subordinate officers, who await the town car of the mayor. In the honor guard I can see Wins- ton Newman, Melvin Atherton and Donald Cutter, whose Scouting experience of their school days stands them in good stead now. Others in the group, if my vision may be trusted, are Hobart Howes, and Ralph Chapman. With loud screeching of brakes, the expensive sedan comes to an abrupt halt in the center of the Square, where Chief Blinn and his cohorts stand at attention. Business men leave JUNE 1934 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC 11 their work, passersby stop in their tracks, all traffic is at a standstill, as the footman, whom I recognize as Horace Crandall, and the chauffeur, his twin brother, Herbert, step out to assist His Honor. A ruddy-faced, middle-aged man, attired in a silk hat and a morning coat, looking very dignified, alights from the car, puffing viciously on a choice perfecto. Who is it but Edward McCarthy, the people’s choice as mayor. The squadron salutes and escorts the Honorable Mr. McCarthy across the Square to the beautiful new City Hall, which has been built on the site of the old Dow Block. As he steps into the ele- vator he is greeted with a cheery “Good morning, your Honor,” from the elevator man, Albert Bruce, who, you will remember, always claimed that he would get up in the world. Douglas Connor and Robert Stinson, political henchmen to the mayor, sit peacefully in the mayor’s office, helping themselves to the mayoralty brand of cigars, and reading the mayor’s morning mail. Upon the arrival of Stone- ham’s first citizen, Stinson nonchalantly rises from the mayor’s easy chair and politely squats on the mahogany desk. He shows Mayor McCarthy an invitation to speak at the Annual Clam Bake and Spelling Bee of the Stoneham Women’s Republican Club of which Margaret A. Wallace is president and of which Lena Abair, Helen Clark, Katherine Elers, Dorothy LeBlanc and Vesta Coombs are prominent members. The offer is rejected by his honor, who preferring hamburgers to clams, says that he will accept the invitation to the Ward 7 Tammany Club’s Hamburg Festival. The well known ward leader and orator, Bernard “Big Mike” Scully, is chairman of the committee in charge of the Ham- burg Festival and is being assisted by City Treas- urer Edmund Blood, City Solicitor Ashton Clark, Congressman Robert Arnold, Alderman William Gibbons, and Representative Earle Gould. The mayor then reads a communication from Chase and Meehan, Inc., tobacco dealers, which is written as follows: Dear Mr. Mayor: Election Day is drawing near and you will need a new supply of cigars. Place your order with us and be sure of satisfaction. Our cigars are made to re- sist even the sharpest of teeth, and are guaranteed to last one hour, twenty-four minutes and six sec- onds. Children cry for them, adults walk seven- tenths of a mile for them, they’re so good. What this city needs is a mayor who smokes a good fif- teen cent cigar such as our " Civic Pride” Brand. Yours for bigger and better smokes, John Chase. Robert Meehan. Another letter, bearing the postmark, Concord, Mass., is read. It is a message from Arthur Per- kins, publicity manager for Lieut. Austin Junkins, of the Stoneham-Melrose Air Dispatch, who has just completed a trans-country flight in the record time of ten hours. In his honor a Welcome Home Cele- bration will be staged by the city. A postscript states that Harold McDonough, a stowaway, was discovered in the rear cockpit after the arrival at Concord. It seems that Harold wanted to visit his old friend, Charles Leete, who is at the Reforma- tory, where he is giving his famous lecture course on “Why the Well Dressed Man Will Choose Yellow for His Summer Wardrobe.” During the time Charles is spending at the Reformatory, he is the personal guest of the Warden, George Grover. At this juncture, the mayor’s secretary, whom I recognized as Doris Bruce, enters the sanctum with the official appointment book. On this day the mayor is slated to be present at the noonday meet- ing of the Stoneham Lion Tamer’s Club, the presi- dent of which is Charles Rollins, a public spirited citizen and prominent member of the Class of ’34. Charlie is managing a small group of actors made up of the great grandchildren of the famous Sing- er’s Midgets. (He always did go in for little things in a big way.) The mayor also has an appointment with Attorney James Smith concerning a law suit brought against the city by Smith’s client, Ethel Noyes. Ethel claims in her suit for $10,000 that her health was impaired because of the noise made by a large tractor of the Harris Marshall Construction Company which was working on a municipal pro- ject near her home. Just as Mayor McCarthy is preparing to leave his office, a man comes in — oh, yes, I can see who it is now — it is Paul Davis and he seems to be selling something. No, he is a poet and wants to sell the mayor a few campaign slogans. Davis, so the See- ahead-o-graph reveals, has become famous for his introduction of the new game of rhymes, called, " Dropping a Bomb in Moscow from the Irustsh Limited at Five-thirty of a Sunday Afternoon, Late in September.” As a sample, Davis offers this rhyme to the may- or: “Little Miss Muffet Sat on a tuffet, Eating her curds and whey, Along came a spider, And sat down beside her, And said, ‘Please pass the salt’.” After this wild session, we leave the mayor’s of- fice and the next picture we see is that of the huge Stoneham Theatre owned and operated by Frank Morris. It is night and we can see emblazoned across the gaily lighted marque the words, “Now playing, George Magrath’s Scandals, starring Nata- lie Fiumara and Eddie Marsh, supported by a danc- 12 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1934 ing chorus of beautiful girls, including Kitty White, Jean Sullivan, Virginia Haradon, Jeanne Sparkes, Kitty Kelly, Cornelia Weeks, Eva Southall.” A fea- ture of the show is Wild Bill Dolan, the Hill Billy singer. The orchestra at the theatre is under the direc- tion of John McDonough, and includes Ed Mahoney, the slide-trombonist, ‘‘tearing music off by the yard;” Earl “Rudy” Gross, the crooning saxophon- ist, and William White, the dreamy drummer. Entering the theatre lobby for the opening per- formance, I see Donald Blanchard and Claire Wells, Mrs. Blanchard to you, and three little Blanchards tugging at their father’s coattail. Don is professor of French at Tufts now, but still makes his home in Stoneham. Standing in the lobby also is another well known S. H. S. couple, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Roach. Do I have to tell you that Mrs. Roach is the former Eleanor Brown? Hennie is the New York Yankees shortstop who has just recently es- tablished a new stolen base record. Ellie is a daily spectator at the Yankee Stadium where she sits and paints pictures of her better half in action. Standing in the lobby at the entrance to the thea- tre, garbed in a red and gold uniform bedecked with medals and tassels galore, and looking as important as ever, is Rayford Mann, graciously bowing and di- recting as he takes tickets. The head usher at the theatre is Paul Cunningham, who also makes an ad- mirable appearance in his trim uniform. But suddenly the theatre view fades away and next I see a beautiful new structure, modern in ev- ery respect, standing in the North end of the town. It is the new Stoneham Preparatory School for Boys. There in the headmaster’s office sits James L. Rich. Jimmy has been active in the education field and has completed several theses on modern education. Only recently he headed a vigorous drive against the modern Latin text book, edited by Viola LaPierre, th e old Latin shark herself, on the grounds that it was written in a foreign language and aided in spreading Fascisti propaganda. Through Stoneham’s State Senator, Emil D’Entre- mont, he has introduced a bill on Beacon Hill, car- rying the demand for a tariff on ablative absolutes. In the same district of the town I see the power- ful new broadcasting Station BLAH, owned by Don- ald Grundberg, the famous radio technician. Grund- berg’s advertising is handled by the firm of Doyle and Pinciaro, known to us in the old days as Helen and Rita. Let’s take a look at some of the talent employed at the station. Emily Dalton, known to her radio fans as Miss Millie, gives “Advice to the Lovelorn” daily from eight until seven. Clifford Jones, the creamy voiced tenor, is featured on the Lord Milk Hour, singing his theme song, “Love Thy Cows.” Mary Donovan, the children’s favorite, reads her own bed-time stories each evening under the sponsorship of the Palmer Chain Stores, Roy Palmer, president. Regina Mahoney lectures week- ly on “What Your Dreams Mean and Why.” Ade- line Newcomb, the famous astrologist, reads palms over the radio. Her announcer says, “If you wish your palm read send it to Miss Newcomb in care of the station to which you are now listening.” The scene is shifting again. The next view I see is that of the Harvard Stadium. It is a bleak No- vember day. The annual Harvard- Yale game is in progress and on opposite sides of the field I see the two coaches, Peter Savelo, Yale’s " builder of men,” and Stan Brooks, Harvard’s “mussle maker.” Trav- elling again, I next visit the artists’ colony at Prov- incetown where I see on the sands, busily painting a waterfront scene, Jane Arnold, the eminent New York artist, who deserts her Park Avenue home each summer for the mosquitoes, sand-flees, and cod fish of Provincetown. The “See-ahead-o-graph” jumps once more and the next picture is that of the Annual Teachers’ Convention at Bridgewater. Among those present are Mary Anderson, head of the Boston University French Department; Jane Zemer, Analytical Bac- teriology Instructor at Radcliffe (where, incidental- ly, Betty Boos is head of the Art Department). Helen Lister has come down from Mt. Holyoke where she is teaching Psychological Zoology. Returning to Stoneham, the “See-ahead-o-graph” presents a picture of the new Stoneham Common, part of the recently completed Civic Center. It is afternoon and the Stoneham Civic Symphony Or- chestra, under the direction of George Panosian (Professor George Panosian, of the Panosian School of Music), is playing. Included in the orchestra are names familiar to S. H. S. music lovers: Iris Kel- man, Marjorie Munn, Wanda Konapacka, Helen Lis- ter. At one corner of the spacious common is a famil- iar figure, the great Carl Weiss. Taking advantage of the large crowd on hand, Carl has set up his time-worn soap box and is beginning one of his lengthy orations on the " pros” and “cons” of Social- ism. Carl, by all appearances, has lost none of his old cunning and is talking as loudly as ever. Across the street from the common is the beauti- ful building of the Stoneham Dramatic Society. Drama in all its stages is taught here and all the types of plays, from the classics to the current fa- vorites, are presented. Colin Roberts and Phyllis Peterson are the directors. A poster outside an- nounces that “Hamlet” is to be revived tonight with Karl Frick in the title role and Richard Potter as the Ghost. Nearby I can see the Stoneham Hospital, a new institution in our city. Heading the staff of house JUNE 1934 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC 13 doctors is Robert Holden, Harvard ’38. Bob has become a well-known figure in the field of surgery. (If I remember correctly, he always harbored a se- cret avocation for cutting up.) Betty Doherty is the superintendent of nurses and has an able staff assisting her. A few whom you will remember are Lucy Hines, Ruth Morrison, Shirley French, and Mary Kelly. Now the “See-ahead-o-graph” leads back to the Square and a tour of the city’s progressive business houses. First I see John Coughlin standing in the doorway of his large meat and grocery store. Rose Janigian is seen busily counting the pennies in the cashier’s cage. Next door Ken Prescott, the Boston Bruin’s star net-minder, spends the off season in his ice cream parlor, where incidentally, there is more than one booth. Upstairs is the Riley-Tole School of Athletic Terpsichore. Ethel has joined her athletic ability with Barb’s ability as a dancing teacher. On the same floor, bright gold letters announce the office of Dr. Edward F. Breagy, who is one of the world’s most brutal, painless dentists. It is be- fore office hours, and Eddie is sitting with his feet out of the window, reading Jane Strobel’s latest novel, “The Adventures of the Melrose Girls at Breezy Hill,” or “Why Are There No Sheep at the Sheepfold ?” The next office to Eddie’s is occupied by the “Frizzie-frazzie” Beauty Parlors, Inc., which is a coast to coast chain operated by Mildred Shay and Margaret Barton. A bit farther down the hall I see the “Winnie Mae” Gowne Shoppe, whose proprietress is none other than Winifred Norton. Winnie’s shoppe is patronized by all the leading debs, sub-debs, and In- ternational War Debs. In the same block, The Country Club, a combina- tion dining salon and golf school is conducted. At one of the tees the “pro” is giving a novice instruc- tion. I can tell by the way he swings the club that I have seen him before. As he turns around I recognize him as Bernie Orr, who is putting his knowledge of the Scotch pastime to good use in teaching Isabelle Kaulback the finer points of the game. Edith Downes is operating the dining room and has as assistants: Olive Lester, Mary Ford, Mary Ferry, Thelma Olsen, and Marjorie Logan. Across the street I see the Stoneham Academy of Music and Elocution. Shirley Estes, the well known concert pianist, and Cynthia Claflin, whose poems are now universally read at every breakfast table, are at the helm of this institution and have a large clientele made up of the children of the mem- bers of the Class of 1934. It must be the wanderlust, for the “See-ahead-o- graph” has again pulled stakes and now places its focus upon a large Eastern port. Here the liner “Seaweary” of the Robert Yancey Line (he always had a pretty good line) is tied up at the dock. On the bridge, pacing to and fro, is the Captain, Wil- lard Ames. On the passengers’ list I see the name of Carolyn Lewis, who has been traveling extensive- ly gathering material for her poems. The Stoneham Women’s Bridge Team, composed of Helen Coombs, Elizabeth Fama, Marion Keating, and Arlene Taylor, is aboard ship having just re- turned from the International Competition staged in London where they carried off the International crown. Seated in deck chairs are Nancy Markham and Esther Rounds, members of the Stoneham School Committee, who are returning from Europe where they have been lecturing on “The Progressive School in America.” Talking to them is Betty Knudson who is the hostess on the boat. Leaning over the railing, I see Herbert and Har- vey Bennett, evidently a bit seasick. They were leaders of an unsuccessful diamond hunting expedi- tion to Ethiopia, and are returning to their homes. And now we come to the last scene which the " see-ahead-o-graph” has to present. In an appara- tus-cluttered laboratory, behind a pile of broken test tubes, sits John “Pete” Bowen, working tedi- ously on a new invention — the “learn-a-graph,” the plans for which Colonel Stoopnagle and Bud, who have now reached a feeble old age, have handed down to him. The “learn-a-graph,” when complet- ed, will do away with the necessity of schools, as it will learn everything possible for human beings — thus no other class will have to work like the Class of 1934. Alas, the “see-ahead-o-graph” has concluded its preview of the lives of the members of the Class of 1934, its visions fade, it ceases to work, it is out of gas. Whether the visions of the " see-ahead-o-graph” which I have interpreted for you prove true or not, may the future be all that you hope it will be — may success, wealth, and happiness be yours, and may your lives ever be living exemplifications of the principles and ideals of S. H. S. PROPHECY OF THE PROPHET. It was on a crowded elevated train that my curi- osity was first aroused. Having nothing else to do, I was attempting to read the newspaper of a pas- senger who was standing but a little distance from me. As this passenger folded up his paper, I caught a glimpse of a picture on the front page; a picture of a man who, for some reason, seemed strangely familiar to me. However, the paper was 14 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1934 folded and placed in a pocket in such a way that the photograph was no longer visible. All that I had learned from that one glance was that the pic- ture reminded me of some one whom I had, at one time, known. As I was leaving the station I heard someone call me by name. I glanced toward the doorway and saw, much to my surprise, the very man whose pic- ture had stared at me from a paper earlier in the day. As I walked toward him, I studied his face and again I wondered where I had seen it before. Suddenly, it came back to me like a flash! Why, that was Bob Callahan, one of my old classmates back in Stoneham High. I hastened my steps and grasped his outstretched hand. “Bob Callahan, you old reprobate! Where have you been keeping yourself? I haven’t seen you in a dog’s age. How are you?” , “I’m O. K.,” Bob replied, “I seem to be getting along. How about yourself?” “Oh, I’m all right,” I said. “Where are you going now? How about coming with me?” " Sorry, Clarkie,” he said, “but I’ve got an impor- tant board meeting. I’ll have to be hurrying along.” “A board meeting?” I put in. “Say, what kind of a job have you anyway?” “Why, I’m a silent partner in one of the largest banks of the country,” Bob offered. “Besides that, I own the largest newspaper business in the whole state. I distribute more papers than all my com- petitors together. How about meeting me here to- morrow night at the same time? We can talk over those good old days spent in Stoneham High School.” “Tomorrow night it is,” I agreed, “don’t forget.” “I won’t,” he promised, “I’ll be here right on the dot.” The following evening I returned at the appoint- ed time. Callahan had not arrived so I sat down to wait. Time passed with no sign of Bob. After waiting a little longer, I decided to leave. As I headed for the door, I noticed a day-old paper lying under a bench. Again, I saw the same picture of Bob looking up at me. Being very curious, I picked the paper up to read the article. Before I had completed two lines, I was struck with amazement. Here is what I read: “Callahan Still At Large. — As yet, no trace has been found of Robert Callahan, who last night escaped from the Danvers Asylum. All authorities are notified to keep a lookout for him. He is not harmful but has a habit of pretend- ing to be a man of great importance.” This was enough. I read no further. Poor Bob! Who would have expected a thing like that to hap- pen to him? A GRADUATES DILEMMA Way down in the dim, dark, deep depths of my heart I feel a wee pain of sorrow. At precisely the point v here an imaginary line drawn from my right ear to my left eye would intersect another imagin- ary line drawn from my left ear to the part in my hair, is a small area of my brain which is full of doubt. Revealing itself in my firm lip and my tightly clenched hand is a restless wave of grim de- termination. It all started last Sunday when Aunt Mamie came in dragging little pig-tailed Cousin Carrie with her. Aunt Mamie came over to get one of my pictures. That would have been all right, only t hey arrived just as we were finishing our dinner. Being a gallant young creature, I got up and offered Aunt Mamie my chair — after being requested, coaxed, and final- ly commanded to do so by my father. That would not have been so bad, but then I had to be polite and as my mother suggested, share my strawberry shortcake with freckle-faced Cousin Carrie. After Cousin Carrie had eaten all my shortcake, there was so much on her face that she looked as though she had a bad case of the measles — we ad- journed to the front room where everyone sat around in a circle as though it was a Spiritualists’ meeting. It was no voice from the dead which we heard — it was only Aunt Mamie, who began, “Well, Oscar, what are you going to do next year?” Be- fore I had a chance to answer, she continued, “You know, your dear Uncle Elmer always said before he died that he hoped you would be a horse doctor. He first got the idea the day he saw you fixing your new hobby-horse with a hatchet. Of course, there aren’t so many horses now but that is all the better for the horses.” Just then my father boomed in, “No son of mine is going to be a horse doctor. What do you think I have worked all these years for? From now on I expect to sit back and be supported Why, he could get a job as a Fuller Brush man and make some real money as well as meet a lot of nice peo- ple.” This was just enough to encourage my mother to add her bit. So, in her best brogue she said, “Now, and by gorry, don’t be after puttin’ none of those high an’ mighty ideas into his head at all, at all. I guess if bein’ a cop was good enuf for my father, it’s good enuf for my son.” While this argument as to what I should make of myself continued, gaining more and more heat as it increased, I sat quietly on the side-line waiting for the final down. Finally, Aunt Mamie remembered that she had to put Cousin Carrie’s hair up in curl papers and made a hasty departure. Cousin Carrie wore her hair in JUNE 1934 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC 15 pigtails on Sunday and curled during the week — you see Aunt Mamie was that contrary. Just as the air was beginning to clear a little the door opened and in came Uncle Jake and Aunt Sa- die and Cousins Jeremiah, Josephine, Anastasia, Aloysius, Gonzaga, and Amelia. Upon being in- formed as to the reason why we seemed so upset, Uncle Jake, who is a furniture mover, made his sug- gestion. “Well, now, I’ll tell you what I would do if he was my son,” he said, with an air of profound wisdom. “I’d send him to one o’ them schools where they learn them to be barbers. They’s good money in that and it’s easy work too. I wish all I had to do was stand around with a pair o’ scissors in me mit all day. That’s what I call givin’ yer kids a break — learn ’em to be somethin’ better than you are.” “Well, I should think that was the craziest idea I ever heard of. Make them think they are better than you an’ there’s no telling what will happen. If you ask me, I should say that these kids is hard enough to handle as they are without making them any worse.” All this was added very generously by Aunt Sadie. Soon the entire family was engaged in another nice, quiet, peaceful little family dispute. Still, I sat in the bleachers waiting for a foul ball to come my way. The next morning I went to school greatly puz- zled — should I be a horse doctor, a Fuller Brush man, a cop, or a barber? My teachers had told me many times that they knew everything so I deter- mined to ask their advice. Miss Bonjour, the French teacher, suggested that I take a post-graduate course, but the Principal dis- agreed, saying that he had had enough trouble with me already and didn’t want to see me around any more. In fact, he even told me that he was only graduating me to get rid of me. Prof. Test-tube, my chemistry teacher, advised me to get a job I could find which had nothing to do with chemistry. The Latin teacher, Miss Cicero, didn’t feel capable of advising me one way or anoth- er. Miss Trigy Nometry, who teaches math, told me that her father needed someone to help him dig potatoes out in Idaho. The other suggestions were: errand boy, flagpole-sitter, bus driver, teacher, doc- tor, lawyer, Indian chief, etc. That afternoon I went home greatly puzzled — should I be a horse doctor, a Fuller Brush man, a cop, a barber, a post-graduate, a potato digger, an errand boy, a flagpole-sitter, a bus driver, a teacher, a doctor, a lawyer, or an Indian Chief? I tried using the elimination system all that after- noon but by suppertime my list had grown from thirteen to twenty-one possibilities. That night I went to the movies and saw a picture about the Old Homestead and that gave me the grand idea which solved my problem. I am starting tomorrow to hitch-hike around the world in order to get local color for a book I am going to write entitled, “Camping in the Fells,” or “Getting Back to Nature at Spot Pond.” The Three Mutzinteers. THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF 1934 We, the Class of 1934 of the Stoneham High School, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty-four, being of a sound mind and body, do hereby proclaim this masterpiece to be our last will and testament and do part with our gifts, real and otherwise, as follows, namely in fun: Item I. It is our wish and desire that the Junior Class be given the shiny, unworn athletic equipment that they may be aided in carrying on the record breaking victories of dear old S. H. S. Item II. We present to the Senior Faculty a book of " gags.” After having such an intelligent class of “gaggers,” like ours, life in school is going to be dull — but a whole lot easier to swallow. Item III. It is also our most sincere desire that a pencil with a musical top be willed to S. H. S. and be given to Miss Garland; this is to relieve the monotony of the incessant tapping noise and put a little rhythm into her favorite pastime of tapping desk covers with her pencil. Item IV. For ourselves we donate one row in Room 11, so we may, at any time, come back to school and laugh at, as well as pester, the unfortu- nate, suffering detention students. We also leave these helpful hints: 1. To future students of Room 15: Remember to laugh softly at anything that might happen in class — for, if you arouse the curiosity of Mr. Davis, and do not inform him of every detail — well, you will find out for yourselves that you’d better tell him and get it over with. 2. Remember, you lucky ones who are going to Room 18, that Mr. Hoyt sees all, knows all, and doesn’t hesitate in informing you of his knowledge. 3. And remember that report cards appear only four times a year— but — that’s enough to make any- body give up. In witness whereof we hereby set our hands and seal. Class of 1934.

AUTHENTIC 21 (Maas Notes SENIOR BANQUET On Monday, May 26, 1934, we Seniors of the Class of ’34 trekked to the Andover Country Club, An- dover, Massachusetts, and partook of the chicken served at our banquet. This poor chicken, or should I say chickens, aroused the comment and ire of many of the partakers for it is quite a stunt to dissect an unfamiliar bird and also keep up with the happenings at the various surrounding tables. Seriously, we Seniors thoroughly enjoyed this banquet in our honor. Instead of giving a routine account of the even- ing’s and morning’s festivities I propose to give an “Eater’s eye view” of the occurrences. Well, Bob and this “Eater” arrived at the scene precisely at 6.45 P. M., the time appointed for the attack. Entering cautiously we met up with Czar Earle Thomas Thibodeau, and this esteemed per- sonage, after surveying us and ascertaining that we escorted no girls, sidled up to us and whispered that he would be pleased if we, Bob and I, would pass the word along that it would be fine if the gentle- men coming “stag” would each escort a girl into dinner. We sat at a table with four (4) girls. The chicken was served and for the next hour all hands were busily engaged carving, tearing and consuming the elusive birdie. After struggling thus we were all happily relieved when Toastmaster Eddie Breagy stood up and called for silence amid the plaudits of the multitude. Our Eddie adequate- ly handled his Toastmastership and gave us many a laugh with his witticisms. We noticed that at one time Andy Flagg had five hats on at once. Toasts were in order and Eleanor Brown gave a toast to the boys. To reciprocate, Eddie McCarthy gave a toast to the sweet girls. I’m only a novice in toasting but to my untrained ears it seemed that Eleanor is a fine poetress but Eddie certainly states the facts with a straight from the shoulder style. Speechmaking was also in order and the Toast- master called upon the invited guests. Seated at the head table were Superintendent and Mrs. Charles Varney, Principal Howard Watson, Vice-Principal and Mrs. William Nadeau, Miss Fan- nie Spinney, Earle Thomas Thibodeau, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew S. Flagg, Edward Breagy, Donald Blanch- ard, president; Claire Wells, secretary; Robert Cal- lahan, vice-president; Peter Savelo, treasurer; Ethel Riley and Edward McCarthy. Coupled with the speeches was entertainment fur- nished by members of our esteemed class. This en- tertainment tended to take our mind from the chicken, to which the speakers constantly alluded, and prepare us for the next attack upon its merits. Eddie Marsh gave us a selection of popular songs which were well rendered and well received. Our Eddie surely can sing. As an appetizer, Bernard M. Scully turned out the Class Statistics, a conglomer- ation of libel and truth which stirred the house to laughter and sometimes individuals to remorse; imagine being called the Class Ear-wiggler! Next came another selection of songs by Natalie Fiumara. “Love Thy Neighbor” was outstanding and so was that beautiful blush extending down to " Muggs” Brooks’ collar — how about it, “Muggs?” Completing the “dinner act” was a group of piano renditions by Miss Shirley Estes. These were very fine and well received; we congratulate Shirley. Dinner over, and Mr. Watson awake, by his own admission, we wandered about. Bob and I, and watched the various cigars lead the potential mas- ters about! Especially interesting was the stogie which George Magrath toted — the puzzle was — find Magrath. By this time Danny Griffin and his boys were at work and dancing began in earnest, only to be brought to a standstill by a dance specialty given by Barbara Tole. After the third dance, we left for parts unknown, that is, unknown at first, but we ran into Bob Callahan and Eddie Breagy in the wee hours of the morning procuring food at a local res- taurant. After partaking of the delicious meal they ordered at Andover — such disloyalty! Now it might seem fitting for me to relate some of the places (and the times thereof) visited by our associates, but most of it was idle boasting, so I will refrain. So here’s a toast: To the Banquet of ’35, may it be as fine and joyous as that of ’34. Colin Roberts ’34. SENIOR CLASS NOTES The senior class have voted to plant trees and shrubs on the school grounds as a memorial to the late Fanny Davis, beloved member of the faculty who passed away two years ago. The class of 1934 was the last class at the high school to receive her guidance and instruction. — x — - The annual farewell assembly of the senior girls was held in the assembly hall at Stoneham High 22 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1934 School, Wednesday morning, May 23, 1934. Mrs. Margaret E. Owen, noted authoress, was the speak- er and proved very interesting. A Bible reading was given by Phyllis Peterson to open the program, fol- lowed by an original farewell address by Viola La Pierre. Barbara Tole headed the committee in charge which included Ethel Riley, Helen Clark, and Emily Dalton. Dorothy Oppen, Virginia Fiumara and Mabel Adams of the junior class served as ushers. — x— We wonder if the teachers are ever going to let up on home work, or if they are going to give it to us right up until graduation. — x— On Wednesday, June 6, 1934, the Commercial Club put on an assembly. The meeting was opened with a Bible reading by Olive Lester. Our guest speaker, Mr. Munger, was introduced by our President, Thel- ma Olsen. Typewriting awards were presented by Mr. Watson. Edith Downes was our pianist. JUNIOR CLASS NOTES X Junior boys who went out for baseball are John Buckley, Harold Howes, John Mahoney, Anthony Antemaso and Phillip Riley. — x — We wonder if teachers who take a great deal of interest in looks lost by girls would take the same interest in looks lost by boys. We wish to insert here our profoundest apologies to Phillip Riley, S. B. R., for the omission of his name in the Junior Roll Call. — x — Cherchez la Femme Why and who is a certain girl in the business course called “Grandma” ? This also applies to a boy called “Sonny.” SOPHOMORE CLASS NOTES 10 Cl can’t let the fact pass by that Jimmie Rush now puts his gum in the basket even when the teacher isn’t in the room.

AUTHENTIC 2: BASEBALL After getting away to anything but an auspicious start, Coach Howard “Doc” Gordon’s 1934 S. H. S. baseball team gained momentum with each succeed- ing game until, at the current writing, they have improved to the stage where they rate on a par with the other Middlesex League teams. To date but five victories have been scored out of 14 contests, hut a brighter future is in the cards, with a very promising sophomore contingent coming to the fore. The squad of regulars include Captain Pete Savelo, Emil D’Entremont, Henry Roach, Bernard Scully, Edward Mahoney, Edward McCarthy, Howard Truesdale, George Downes, Fred Gross, Colin Rob- erts, John Buckley, John Coughlin, George Poalella, and Sam Smith. HUDSON TAKES OPENER A timely single off the bat of one Paul Cotter, pinch-hitting in the ninth inning, with men on sec- ond and third and one down, spoiled the debut of the 1934 Stoneham High nine at Hudson, Wednesday, April 25, the latter outfit winning 3-2. Little Fred- die Gross, the pygmy pitcher, had held the edge over McNally of the opposition in a lively mound duel, until the fatal final frame. The Blue and White southpaw allowed but six hits and fanned 11. Cap- tain Pete Savelo led the local hitters with a double and a single in four times up, with Henry Roach performing well at shortstop. WINCHESTER WINS IN NINTH After piling up an early 6-1 lead, the Blue and White saw victory snatched from their hands at Winchester, Saturday, April 28, when the Wealthy Towners staged a three-run rally in the last half of the ninth to eke out a 7-6 win. It was the initial Middlesex League contest of the season and certain- ly was a tough one to lose. Emil D’Entremont pitched good ball for S. H. S. for eight innings but weakened noticeably in the ninth, giving in all, total of 9 hits and striking out eight. Captain Pete Sa- velo again led the Gordon willow-wavers, garnering two valuable singles. LATE MAYNARD RALLY SPELLS DEFEAT Another late-game upstart spelled defeat for the Stoneham High diamond representatives when May- nard High pushed over four runs in a big eighth in- ning, Wednesday, May 2, to take the Middlesex League decision 7-4. Fred Gross again pitched air- tight ball for seven innings but lost effectiveness in the next canto. Howie Truesdale, the other half of “Doc” Gordon’s promising sophomore battery com- bination, laced out a double and a single in three times up to take batting honors for our side. ERRORS UNDERMINE GROSS’ PERFORMANCE The league-leading Concord High nine dealt the local diamond exponents a crushing 7-4 defeat at Concord, Saturday, May 5. Erratic fielding on the part of the Blue and White gave the winners num- erous chances, which they capitalized on to take an early lead and coast home with the bacon. Freddie Gross, the hardluck hurler, allowed but six singles and sent 10 back to the bench via the strike-out route, but the sins of omission and comission count- ed heavily. Savelo and Buckley were the heavy hitters for the Blue and White, making a triple and single in four appearances at the plate. TROUNCED BY BELMONT 10-2 Stoneham High suffered its fifth consecutive de- feat of the season in a league tilt at Belmont, Wed- nesday, May 9, when “Polly” Harris’ charges went on a nine-run splurge in the first two innings to eas- ily take the veridee at 10-2. Pete Savelo and Howie Truesdale continued their heavy hitting for the Blue and White, collecting two safe blows apiece, one of Savelo’s going for a triple. “Hen” Roach was the fielding feature. BLUE AND WHITE TOP READING 15-11 The long awaited rainbow shone forth, Friday, May 11, when the Blue and White went on a batting spree to top Reading 15-11 in a free-scoring Middle- sex League game. Freddie Gross, in chalking up his first victory of the year, gave up but four hits and struck out 10. Howie Truesdale cleared the sacks with a long circuit smash in the opening ses- sion and another rally was enjoyed in the eighth when eight markers were scored to clinch the decision. WOBURN TAKEN INTO CAMP With Emil D’Entremont hurling masterful ball, an improved S. H. S. nine edged Woburn High 7-6 in an inter-league clash, here, Monday, May 14. The winning tally was effected in the last half of the ninth when Henry Roach’s long fly to left allowed Colin Roberts, who had singled, to scamper home from third. D’Entremont was reached for but five safeties and forced seven to whiff the breezes. Roberts, with three safe knocks, featured at the bat. 24 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1934 THIRD STRAIGHT AGAINST WINCHESTER Freddy Gross hung up another Middlesex League victory, Wednesday, May 16, limiting Winchester to five singles and ringing up 13 “K’s.” Although held to two hits, those of Roberts and Gross, the Blue and White capitalized on the visitors’ miscues and ineffectiveness in the box to carry off the winnings. A three run spree in the seventh “iced” the game. 8-0 in a Middlesex League clash. Four scattered safeties was all the hitting the invaders did as the little bushy-haired portsider, proceeded to stand them on their heads with a screaming fast ball and a variety of “stuff.” Truesdale led with the Louis- ville, while Roach was his steady self at his short- stop post. The Scores HUDSON IN TEN INNINGS In a 10-inning hurling duel that brought out some of the best baseball of the year, Hudson edged Stoneham High 3-1, Friday, May 18. A home run by Soppett in the tenth broke up the ball game. Sikorsky also scored in this frame when his single got by Bowen and enabled him to circle the bases. But four hits were made off McNally who fanned 14, while D’Entremont, who also struck out the same number, was reached for nine. ROUTED AT LEXINGTON 16-7 Tuesday afternoon, May 16, the locals journeyed to Lexington where they met a 16-7 bombardment in a Middlesex League contest. A total of 32 hits were collected in this wild-hitting fray. After trail- ing early in the game, the locals went out in front 6-5 in the fifth, but the winners unleashed a power- ful batting attack in the later chapers to see vic- tory. Buckley, Savelo and Truesdale were the lead- ing Stoneham batters. LEXINGTON AGAIN 6-5 For the second time in the same week, Lexington High added a Middlesex League win at the expense of the Blue and White, Thursday, May 24. Freddie Gross was on the rubber for our side and was touch- ed up for only five hits, but wildness proved his downfall. Johnny Buckley starred at the bat with two singles and a home run. The victors’ four-run rally in the fifth set them on the winning trail. HUMBLED BY CONCORD In a loosely played Middlesex League contest, Saturday, May 26, Concord High trounced the Blue and White 10-1. The visitors got to Emil D’Entre- mont early in the contest and succeeded in making 14 safe wallops for a decade of tallies. George Poalella garnered three hits in four times up, play- ing his first game as a regular.

Sets of threes ran to gain a place for the finals of the fifty yard dash. The dash was won by Eleanor Brown, Sr. Barbara Tole, Sr., placed sec- ond, and Natalie Fiumara, Sr., placed tthird. The running broad jump was won by Natalie Fiu- mara, Sr. The relay was won by the sophomores composed of Anna Murray, Mary Keating, Jessie Sylvester, and Rita Dougherty; the juniors placed second with Josephine Southall, Virginia Fiumara, Margaret Landers, and Rita Green. The seniors, composed of Ethel Riley, Jane Strobel, Barbara Tole, and Margaret A. Wallace. JUNE 1934 THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC 25 (Soaaip Who is that nice young fellow C. W. knows ? She certainly has pulled the wool of innocence over our eyes. — x — We wonder what H. R. (Alumnus) was doing at our best-looking girl’s house recently? Coming to see Mr. White? Oh, no! — x — EXTRA! EXTRA! EXTRA! Big Eat-a-thon staged at Salisbury Beach, May 28th, or was it May 29th? “Pete” and " Ben” were the participants performing before an audience of twelve. With breathless admiration and speechless wonder we witnessed the exciting procedure and after a most gruelling contest we have to confess “Groucho,” the winner, by a piece of pie and an ex- tra bottle of pop. However, Pete did hold his own. Nice work, boys! — x — A big blue ribbon goes to the batter for first prize in auto driving. After crawling along at the pace of 25 miles he fooled us all by his alarming speed record of 55 miles an hour. He didn’t even heed the poor little protesting sparks from the exhause to the despair of Bernard, Jr. — x — A big, purple scallion to the one who let the air out of the left rear tire of R. A.’s Hudson. — x — Who are the “Three Mutts-in-Tears” ? — x — It was funny that all of us didn’t get a chance to read that literature that was being passed around at the last Commercial Club meeting. — x — What a sight for sore eyes! You should have seen Miss Smith chasing " Stilts” Kaulback down the corridor the other day. What was the attraction we wonder? Although all the girls in the Commercial Club have bought one of the club pins, not many of them are wearing them now. It seems that they look better on the lapels of dark suits or even gray ones. Who was the Don Juan that Viola La Pierre met after the banquet? Not so bad for such a bashful girl! — x — That quartet which rendered “Sweet Adaline” on the veranda of the Andover Country Club was cer- tainly in high gear. Its sweet strains were broken up by the intrusion of some unknown character who quoted, " Silence is Golden.” — x — Then there was the confused Senior who entered the Andover Country Club a little late. Seeing what he thought was a head waiter he went up to the man and inquired, “Could you tell me where the main dining room is?” " Surely,” replied Mr. Var- ney, “right around to your right.” — x — ■ Bread Crumbs from the Banquet! Of course, the Senior Banquet, on May 28th, sup- plied the Gossipper with some juicy tidbits. We re- gret to say that we must hold certain stories locked forever in our heart (we really have one) but a few choice morsels follow. “Bob” Arnold was getting along fine with his chicken, compared to the rest of us, when he dis- covered a juicy piece of dressing with the wrapper off a loaf of Hathaway’s bread obligingly tossed in. Bob was still laughing at the memory of that when he discovered that he had, of all things, a flat tire (and we don’t mean in the front seat). After waiting for what seemed like hours watch- ing Bemie Scully eating two sandwiches, an ice cream, two bottles of tonic and a piece of pie, Pete Savelo caught the fever and tore off a few turn- overs on his own account. The result was the ulti- mate purchase of a bottle of soda. Somebody who thought George Magrath was try- ing to swallow a burning telegraph pole was ad- vised that it was merely a cigar. Whereupon that person quoted, “Give him enough rope and he’ll smoke it.” We delighted in watching beautiful blushes ap- pear on the countenance of each victim of Toast- master Eddie Breagy’s jokes. There were some pips! — x — Colin Roberts startled the office with this excuse 2G THE S. H. S. AUTHENTIC JUNE 1034 on his absent slip, " I was at a wedding.” Ilasty research, however, proved that he was merely a witness. — x — That eminent wizard of radio, Donald Grundbcrg, was a recent martyr to his own genius. Just as he had one of the pocket radios going at a fine rate in a certain study period he was told quite firmly that his broadcasting for that day had come to a close. Sweet music it was, too. Pete Savelo lost a fine chance to get the last ball at the Maynard game simply because he feared to tread on the toes of a fair spectator. Hi, there, Sir Galahad ! — x — Edmund Blood can give you any popular tune to the accompaniment of a glass of Moxie. They say it sounds like Grandpa drinking soup.
