Your presence here adds to the signifi- cance of the occasion. From year to year you have watched and helped us develop. We hope that you saw in us a growth of our faculties that will enable us to be of service to mankind. We realize that a few words can in no way describe the gratitude we feel for you, our friends. To our faculty, we can only say that we hope our lives from now on will serve as proof of the char- acter and manliness taught us by you. Your com- bined efforts and patience will aid us in becoming better men and women. To our parents whose sacrifice and ambitions have been great but unseen by others, no words or thoughts can equal them. Through our deeds alone may the day come when we shall repay in part that which you have given us in full. The years of our student days in Stoneham High School will always be those of joyous remembrances and happy friendships. As we go out into the world it is with cheerful courage that we greet the unseen. Courage is the important thing. All goes if courage goes. Johnson says, " Unless a man has that virtue lie has no security for preserving any other.” There will be many times in our lives when cour- age only will enable us to overcome the obstacles that confront us. Much easier would it be to follow the exploits of the people than blaze a new trail to a higher stan- dard. Our elders gave us the post war problems, unemployment, social unrest, economic depression and political disorder, as an inheritance. Great courage will be necessary to free this country from such evils. There are teeming years lying ahead of this graduating class if we but help to fill them with glorious deeds. The sternest crisis always brings forth the great- est courage. To us, classmates, is hurled the chal- lenge of making America a better place in which to live. We shall not fail that challenge. With these incompetent but sincere words of ap- preciation and hope, we welcome you to our gradua- tion exercises. Samuel Smith. CLASS HISTORY Wings! Who has not desired them? Who has not dreamed of this eventful day when we would receive our insignia and realize our soaring ambi- tions? We are now licensed pilots ready for our first solo flights. Using our training ship, the " Spirit of 1936,” as a model, we have spent four years in study and practical experience preparing for our journey upward. Now with our newly acquired wings we are ready to take off, but first let us try to review some of those happy hours that we have spent in our beloved plane. With pilot, John Diamond; co-pilot, Anne Corco- ran; stewardess, Dorothy May; and chief mechanic, George Downes, as a crew, we took off for our first short flight. Mrs. Barnes, Miss Collins, Miss Fitz- gerald, and Mr. Miller were the watchful instructors who showed us the mechanism of the “Spirit of 1936”. Anna Murray took us on our first practice flight in our social career. After a two months’ rest the “Spirit of 1936” started once more, in September 1933, for another trial flight. Pilot John Diamond was again at the controls assisted by co-pilot, John O’Neil; steward, William Burns; and chief mechanic, George Downes. For this trip, Miss Garland, Miss Smith, Miss Wright, and Mrs. Milton were our ever watchful guides. This was a banner year for us, for now we were allowed to participate in varsity sports. We were represented on every athletic squad. Florence Or- sillo brought home the honors for field hockey, while Ronald McKinnon was our outstanding repre- sentative on the varsity football team. Our social life during this flight covered a great circle of events. First, with Anne Corcoran at the controls, we held our second successful social. We equaled the record of our lofty upper-classmen when our talented classmates helped present the never-to- be-forgotten " Mock Trial” and the first annual Ath- letic Association Circus. These were new ventures for us, but we came through with flying colors, thus earning our promotion as Juniors for the coming year. After a summer of much needed rest, the sturdy “Spirit of 1936” took off once more for an uncharted flight over the hills and valleys of the Junior year. Pilot John Diamond still kept the controls in hand with co-pilot, Albert Pigon; stewardess, Rose Madi- son; chief mechanic, George Downes; and chairman of the Social Committee, Frank Geremonte. Our ship was steadied this year by Miss Spinney, Miss Johnson, Miss Eastman, and Mr. Reed. Once again the “Spirit of 1936” sent many out- standing representatives to the athletic teams. Our real social debut was made when, with John O’Neil at the controls, we presented our first formal dance — the Junior Prom. This was both a social THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC 27 Compliments of DR. HENRY E.

This year our ever willing class contributed to the success of the Athletic Association in its various activities — the Theatre Night, the Minstrel Show, and the Circus. The class decided to purchase our class rings this year instead of in our Senior year and elected Rose Madison as chairman of the ring committee. The Junior Marshals at graduation were Virginia Holden and John Diamond. The head ushers were Anna Murray and Samuel Smith. Because we had had a long, hard flight, we were more than ready to rest when June 1935 came around. In September we were prepared to take off on our last flight together. Pilot, Samuel Smith; co-pilot, John O’Neil; stew- ardess, Dorothy May; chief mechanic, George Downes; and chairman of the social committee, Frank Geremonte, started the “Spirit of 1936” with a perfect take-off. Our helpful instructors were Mrs. Coy, Mr. Hoyt, Mr. Davis, and Mr. Thibodeau. This year we became editors of the “Authentic” and chose Harriett Tidd, editor-in-chief; Natalie Patten and John Janigian, assistant editors. The Athletic Association was also directed by the Senior Class. We elected as officers: President, Ronald McKinnon; Vice President, Mary Keating; Treasurer, Benjamin Moody; and Secretary, Rose Madison, whose duties were later taken over by Vir- ginia Holden. This year the glory of our athletic teams was widely known. The football team was captained by Ronald McKinnon; the field hockey team by Flor- ence Orsillo; the cross country team by Robert Saunders; the championship hockey team by George Downes, and the baseball team by Howard Trues- dale. The Seniors lent their support to the Athletic As- sociation in its three outstanding activities this year — the Musical Revue, the Football Dance, and the Victory Dance. With John O’Neil as chairman, the Senior Hop reached an altitude far above our highest expecta- tions. The Senior Banquet was held at the Andover Country Club with Clifton McCaleb as our genial toastmaster. So our four years of preliminary training have been completed and now we are ready to try our wings in solo flights. " And on we fly A gleam of sunlight round us prophesying Our soaring strength. Across the ripening field We rise, and lift above the wood — on — on — until We flash beyond the hill — And we are gone.” Anne Corcoran. CLASS PROPHECY The other day I was listening to a radio program called “Buck Rogers in the Twenty-fifth Century” and during this program it occurred to me that an excellent prophecy of the Class of 1936 might be ob- tained from the authors of that broadcast. With that in mind I immediately cut the top off six packages of Little Willie Cornflakes and sent them, al ong with my request for a prophecy of the class, to the Cornflake Manufacturers. A few days later I received the following: In the year 1946, with Albert Pigon, George Poa- lella, Robert Cutter, William Burns and Allen Bek- kenhuis, the only grads who had stayed in the town of Stoneham, I went on a long bus ride. The pur- pose of this ride was to locate all of our schoolmates of the Class of ’36. After leaving Stoneham, our first stop was made in Boston so that we might attend the Teachers’ Convention to see if we could recognize any of our colleagues as prominent professors or teachers, those people who go to school but never get out. With the aid of the list of names and the program we discovered that the chairman of the convention was none other than Mr. James Rush who had rush- ed to the top of his profession. Scattered some- where among the convention, according to our list, were Ethel Powers, a geologist (one who studies about Cliffs), Natalie Patten, Phyllis Robinson, and Dorothy Hill, a calm, sedate grade school teacher, from West Overshoez. At that time she was writ- ing home to her husband, Winslow Blanchard, who was, according to her, a honey. Upon leaving the convention we were met by a Mr. Chester Cleveland, another of our classmates, who was now selling gilt edged bonds with a guar- anteed 18% interest. He had just had this new batch of bonds printed at the city’s leading estab- lishment owned by Russell Morrison and Robert Patten who worked their way up from The Inde- pendent. Later on that day we went to the Schubert Thea- tre to witness a new play. Here, too, we located a few more of our classmates, for the play was writ- ten by none other than John O’Neil and dedicated to his wife. It was called “It Might Rain; But It Looks All Haley”. The leading roles were taken by Barbara Stanley, who would rather have played at Keith’s, and Bryce Blanchard, who also starred in “Lady Cowles”.

Dockam, Pres. 377 MAIN STREET TELEPHONE 0105 30 THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC Again the bus was under way and this time head- ed toward New York. Just before entering the hilly section of this country, we stopped at a filling sta- tion owned and operated by “Mac” McKinnon who always was a good hand at spreading oil. A short distance down the highway a huge sign on Dougherty’s Dog Cart advised the motoring pub- lic that an excellent job of rug beating was done at this establishment. Through a little questioning it was found that Howard Truesdale and Rita Dougherty had taken the great plunge, and that Howie’s home run swing was now put to work beat- ing rugs. Still the truth lies in the statement made by an old rooter of the Stoneham team, “Even Mc- Kinnon could hit a rug — maybe”. The next day the omnibus pulled into New York City. Our attention was immediately called to a rather large man dressed in a brown checkered suit like those used in the gay ’90’s, with a dark brown derby, and sky-blue-pink stockings. Upon a closer scrutiny we remembered the face as that one be- longing to Samuel E. Smith. Sam, a promoter of wrestling and boxing, asked us to come to Joe Bruce’s gym as his guests. This seemed to be a new line for Sam since in his high school days he used to be a promoter of good cheer and fun. Among the various artists were Charles Campbell, the well- known wrestler; John McPartland, a city detective, who was in the gym nursing a pair of flat feet, and Harold Nelson, world’s middle-weight boxer. Ralph MacDonald, the ward boss, and his right hand man, Frank Geremonte, were in looking for a couple of bodyguards for use during the coming election. It looked as if trouble would start between Mayor Donald Lawson and his henchmen, Joseph Wainwright and Robert Casey. Ralph told us that we would undoubtedly find quite a few of our fellow grads of ’36 at the Madi- son Square Garden Circus, so we left immediately for the show. At the box office tickets were obtained from Lloyd Wilson who had graduated from the paper business to the pasteboard business. Inside were Ted Arnold, the strong man, going through his rou- tine; Joe Pinciaro, the man on the flying trapeze; Harold Pickens, with all the ferocious animals cap- tured by himself in the wilds of East Woburn; bare- back rider number one, Miss Iola Lane, and last but not least, the ring master, Carl Tolman. The peanut concession for the Garden was owned by Anne Corcoran. Getting money out of peanuts was nothing for Anne, who could get money out of Ben Moody. Mr. Moody was cutting beef steaks at the meat market owned by Paul Junkins, who al- ways was a rather meaty fellow. At the hotel where we stayed that evening every- thing was perfect for a comfortable night’s rest. This comfort was designed by General Manager George Downes, a master at the art of sleep. At the hotel was a girl for whom great things were ex- pected back in high school days because she was al- ways making things up — Marcia Stevens. She was now making up the beds. In the morning paper was an advertisement en- couraging anybody who had the money and was crazy enough to want to lose it, to send five dollars to Alexander Wallace, Inc., for racing tips. There were several attractions that the party might have gone to on that particular day. A race between an auto and an airplane was scheduled. Melvin Wyman, professional driver, was in the auto- mobile while Clifford Hupper was in the airplane. Nobody in the party would bet against Mel. Anoth- er attraction was the Radio City Theatre where we finally decided to go. On the stage, as members of the famous Radio City chorus, were Harriet Russell, Virginia Holden, Ellen Quincy, and Vera Leeman. Featured on the screen was a musical production directed by Harold Grant Schumann. The music was arranged by Ben Maxwell. The singing was ably handled by Miss Linda DiCicco while the acting was well done by Anna Murray and Louis Goetz. From the theatre the party went to the city’s largest department store to do some shopping. The store, under the direction of John Janigian, was crowded to capacity for there was a gigantic sale which had been well advertised by Publicity Manag- er Robert Covin and Artist Robert Brown. The ladies’ section was presenting a unique fash- ion show. Among the models were Erma Eldridge, Lillian Flannigan, Dorothy May and Ruth Howard. All of the gowns shown on that afternoon were de- signed by Rose Madison and Catherine Dougherty. At this time, in the store, Mr. Janigian’s secre- tary, Miss Marion Donahue, was giving Fred Gross, the store detective, a bawling out because he let someone get out of the store with a large Morris chair. Some detective! We left the store and went back ,to our hotel where, with the newspaper as a medium, we found that the musical members of our class, Helen Sheri- dan and Stuart Craigie were featured artists at Carnegie Hall, while Dorothy Spear and Gordon Lis- ter were members of a prominent orchestra. The next day the bus continued on its trip to Washington where we found that all the people in that city are not engaged in political work.

At the outer offices we noticed Myrna Robinson, Josephine Southall, Grace Thomas, and George Watkins, all busily working trying to combine three or four let- ters of the alphabet in order to create new jobs. We wandered into the office of Marguerite Brown, secretary to Senator David Dewhurst, and later into the office of Senator Winthrop Fagan who was dic- tating to his secretary, Alfreda Davidson. Win told us that he had recently had dinner in the home of John Carr and his wife, Margaret Emanuel, and also that Representative Eleanor Grundberg, who had concentrated on the study of law, was very suc- cessful. In the office, Marion Lirakis, Tena Fama, Virginia Vacca, and Louise McLaughlin were among the working force. There was little else to be seen in Washington so we left bright and early the next morning for Chi- cago, where the Democratic Convention was being held. Here we found some of our politically mind- ed classmates. Sitting in the front row, a delegate from Missouri, was Honorable George Bowser who had saved his talk during his high school days in order to be a successor to Huey Long. Hon. Robert Dillon, who found time from his work as one of the leading scientists in a Boston company headed by Warren Reed, was talking to his talented secretary, Thomas Rothwell. At the time that the party en- tered the convention, Chairman Thomas Hurley was yelling, “Shall we vote?” “No.” “Shall we — ,” etc. Outside the party bumped into the chairman of the Board of Commerce, Mr. Richard Lamb, who was running around trying to get everything in shipshape order for the delegates. According to Richard, John Diamond was one of the valued hog callers at the Chicago stockyards. Having heard that some of our friends were on the staff of a neighboring hospital we went to the institution and sure enough, we found Mary Keating, who always did claim that she could take care of anybody her own size. She told us that quite a few girls from the alma mater were nurses in one hos- pital or another. She knew that Irene Allen, Dor- othy Bingham, Virginia Dugan, Christina Stinson, Hazel Stone, and Violet Reid had all ta ken up the profession. Robert Saunders and Harriet Tidd had made the grade as doctors. That seemed funny be- cause these two people never used to cut up in school. Deciding that we had found about as many of the graduates of the Class of ’36 as we could, we started for home. We had not gone very far when we were held up considerably by a flat tire which we were obliged to have fixed at the R. A. Bell Tire and Rub- ber Shop. After that mishap we went along without any un- necessary stops until Sunday morning when we came upon a model village in a remote part of Con- necticut. We stopped at the small, country type church and listened to a sermon by the minister, Donald Gardner. In the conversation which took place following the services we learned that the whole village had been modeled by one designer, Jessie Sylvester ; that the construction end of it had been carried out by Carpenters Anderson and Baert while the landscaping was done by the Rotondi Con- tracting Co., with the aid of the Orsillo Nurseries. That afternoon we again left for home which we reached safely in a few hours. We hoped that each of our classmates would stay as strong and healthy, with the aid of Little Willie Cornflakes, as they were when we last saw them. Clifton McCaleb. PROPHECY OF THE PROPHET After my eventful graduation from Stoneham High School, I found it difficult to secure employ- ment but finally succeeded in getting work on a steamship line which sent me to the remote corners of the earth. At last, after nearly a quarter of a century of interesting vagabonding, with no great financial return, I found myself back in my native town of Stoneham. As I walked along the spotless pavements trying to renew old acquaintances, I was amazed at the many developments which had taken place. Stone- ham, now a city, had become a highly successful financial center. Its huge buildings enchanted me. The building which fascinated me most was the mil- lion dollar high school which had finally been built through the endeavors of the citizens of Stoneham. What could be the cause of such a highly com- mendable progress? I could not seem to find an appropriate solution. Pensively, I walked along un- til this large sign arrested my attention: “Stoneham Transcontinental Bus System, the line that estab- lished prosperity in Stoneham by blazing a trail across the continent, will make a special tour to the sunny land of California. This tour will be free of charge to all members of the S. H. S., Class of 1936. A special bus will leave today at 2.30 P. M.” I glanced at my watch and noted that it was 1.45. I still had forty-five minutes to spare, so I strode over to the bus terminal and was nonchalantly in- specting the bus that was especially decorated for the occasion when a deep masculine voice boomed, “Kindly extradite your person from this private property.” Somewhat startled, I turned around to face a man loudly dressed in a bright red chauffeur’s uni- THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC 33 Compliments of COLONIAL ESSO STATION Corner Main and Middle Streets Stoneham STONEHAM PHARMACY F.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF 1936 We, the Class of 1936, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty-six, being in full and complete possession of our faculties of mind and body, do hereby declare and proclaim this document to be our last will and testament in the following manner: Item I — In appreciation of the many things Mr. Watson has done for the Class of 1936 we withdraw from our treasury the necessary money to enable him to purchase a stream-line, super de luxe Ford, to take the place of the " faithful Chevy” he has been driving. Item II — We, the Class of 1936, wish to leave our extra point and a half for some faithful, aspiring graduate of next year’s class. Item III — To the General Course pupils of next year we leave a recently constructed theatre where they can produce each play that they will study. Item IV — To the General Practical Course pupils of the year 1937 we pass on a few of the very use- ful qualities that the class of 1936 possesses, name- ly, ambition, intelligence and initiative. Item V — To the 1937 College Course we give all our old textbooks, notebooks, and test papers so that their studies will be made easier for them. Item VI — For the Business Course pupils we are placing individual filing cases in Room 18. This will eliminate the necessity of their carrying little boxes around with them. Item VII — The Class of 1936 wishes to donate the necessary funds for the building of a good-sized gymnasium which the girls may use at any time for their sports and gym work. In witness whereof we hereby set our hands and seal, this fifth day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty-six. Class of 1936. Witnesses: Fannie M. Spinney. Earle T.

Groups from the Club have broadcasted on the School and Radio Series over Station WNAC in Bos- ton four different times with added success. The Club has met monthly, holding a business meeting which was followed by a program. The various study groups in the Club have provided the programs for the year. Miss Alice King has been most kind to contribute her talent for two of the meetings. Miss Helen Collins entertained the Club in Feb- ruary, with a most helpful talk on the “Art of Make-Up”. MJss Luella Dunning has given two short talks on “Drama”. Mr. Herbert W. Lunn, production supervisor, WNAC, Boston, w as kind enough to speak to the Club on the “Advantages of Radio as a Vocation”, at the May meeting. This being the last meeting of the year, election of officers was held for the coming year. The following were elected: President, Ben Bagdikian. Vice-President, Dorothy Starr. Secretary, Alice Richardson. Treasurer, Everett Corthell. Librarian, Lillian Eldridge. THE TRAFFIC SQUAD The traffic squad began its season in September and has continued throughout the current school year. The work done has been very satisfactory and the squad has been complimented many times for its good work. Under the capable faculty management of Mr. Thibodeau the squad has improved greatly. During the recent year a few socials have been held by the members of the squad and all were a social success. A recent improvement was the addition of circles showing the traffic positions for the convenience of the members and student body. The Seniors leaving the squad this year are: El- eanor Grundberg, Anne Corcoran, Virginia Holden, Dorothy May, John O’Neil, Michael Gallella, and John Diamond. The other members of the squad this year are: Helen Scully, Ben Hur Bagdikian, Marion Coles, Americo Eramo, Paul Doorly, Frank Isabelle, Flor- ence Monson, and Eleanor McLaughlin.

How the very mention of that word stirs us! At once we think of pictures we’ve seen, tales we’ve heard and books we’ve read. Once again we see D’Artagnan and his friends fighting the soldiers of the Cardinal’s guard. We are trans- ported as if by a magic carpet to a time, centuries ago, when all men carried swords and used them on the slightest provocation. Then it was when real gallantry flourished as never before — or since. An insult or an offense then was settled on the spot. Now we take it to court and it is dragged out for years, until we have forgotten the main issue. The incomparable Cyrano de Bergerac was one who let no insult remain unsettled. He described himself as — “No figure of a man, But a soul clothed in shining armor, hung With deeds for decorations, twirling — thus — A bristling wit, and sv inging at my side Courage”. It was this fantastic and colorful character, this poet, philosopher, musician and swordsman who composed a ballad while fighting a duel. Surely you remember the way it starts — “Lightly I toss my hat away, Languidly over my arm let fall The cloak that covers my bright array — Then out swords, and to work withal.” Such a person could not exist today. Now we hear that one Paul Gallico, a newspaper man and something of a sportsman, who is recog- nized in many branches of sport, has worked him- self into a frenzy over fencing and is fervently pray- ing that the United States as a nation will take it up. Fencing, he claims, is one of the most exciting sports and one which furnishes terrific exercise. All well and good. Granted that it is great fun and does furnish “terrific, tiring exercise”. What of it? Who cares? Is this any reason for the American people to adopt it and cherish it as a best loved pastime ? Far from attracting us, such a recommendation is likely to prejudice us against fencing. As a rule, we are an amazingly lazy people (witness the huge crowds that attend baseball and football games com- pared with the number who play for the pleasure it affords them). The only reason that we would adopt fencing and popularize it would be because of the romantic angle in which it is viewed. We should see advertisements reading: “Become a Cyrano de Bergerac” or “Daring D’Artagnan Duell- ing Foils, $4.69 a pair”. But even looking at it in this light, it would only be a fad and would last at best for perhaps two years. Our ways of living would not tolerate such an antique sport. After a brief period, fencing would follow the trail made by miniature golf, flagpole sitters, and “The Music Goes Round and Round”. Stuart Craigie ' 36. HOCKEY For the first time in Stoneham High’s history, the Greater Boston Interscholastic Hockey League title has been reached. As the standing shows, Stone- ham won nine out of the ten scheduled games, and only lost one. The Spot Pond lads were two games and a half ahead of their nearest competitor. ’Tis quite a large margin as in other years the cham- pions have won by only one game or less. McKinnon, Thompson and Truesdale were chosen for the first team of the All Stars while Donald Orr was elected for a second team berth. All of these boys had a very large part in keeping the All Stars undefeated. Thompson made three goals and six assists. Orr made three goals and four assists, feted at a banquet by the Stoneham Teachers’ Club feted to a banquet by the Stoneham Teachers’ Club and also by the American Legion, Post 115. The Royal Rooters Club also did their share in congrat- ulating the heroes, by presenting the first team with gold rings, and silver rings to the squad members who did not play enough to gain their letter. The members of the team are: Dana Wandless, William Dowd, David Dewhurst, Clifton McCaleb, Howard Truesdale, Clifford Thompson, Ronald Mc- Kinnon, Captain George Downes, Lawrence Hurley, Donald Orr, Americo Eramo, Arthur Donaghey, Robert Gray, Dean Morrison, Joseph Tole and Co- Managers Chester Cleveland and Frank Geremonte. In conclusion let us remind you of the fact that Cliff Thompson has been elected next year’s captain and we all hope that under the capable guidance of Coach Howard Gordon, who deserves a good deal of credit for our championship team, he will lead as fine a team as Captain George Downes had this year.

But somehow the team did not click in its important games, but showed their mettle only against teams outside of the league. The games were all with tight scores. The highest points by which Stoneham lost was to Lexington who had the Stoneham boys at their mercy in the mud. The best games of the season were with Sau- gus and Winchester in which very few dull moments were realized. Amelio Minghella was chosen for the 1936 season’s captaincy. The team will lose eighteen members by gradua- tion.

H. S. harriers, led by Captain “Red” Saunders, turned in a commendable record with three wins and four defeats. Reading was greatly overcome twice by almost identical scores. Woburn split two meets with the Blue and White, both winning by a slight margin. The worst defeat was sustained at the hands of Wakefield. In the five team meet, Stone- ham came in last. Donald Shay was chosen captain of the 1936 season.

The team came through with one win, two ties and two defeats. With the previously demonstrated alertness and swiftness of the incoming team, the future prospects look very promising. This year’s greatest surprise was Lillian Flanni- gan who showed her ability to play any position excellently, saving many a score against her team. The members of the team who received letters this year are: Captain Florence Orsillo, Harriet Russell, Vera Leeman, Mary Keating, Ellen Quincy, Mar- garet Emanuel, Marion Lirakis, Virginia Vacca, Lillian Flannigan, Virginia Holden, Captain-elect Inez Jones, Jessie Sylvester, Evelyn McLaughlin, Anne Corcoran, Marguerite Brown, Dorothy Speare and Dorothy May, manager.

The local diamondeers got away to a poor start in the league, dropping the first three games but Captain Howie Truesdale and his mates came fast to win the next seven games to flank Lexington. Non-league competitors were treated harshly by the Gordonians. Medford, Cambridge Latin, Wake- field, Woburn and Saugus all fell before Truesdale and Company. Stoneham’s record is 14 wins and only 5 losses, a most creditable showing against strong opposition.

CRUCIBLE OF LIFE Sitting alone — Darkness falling Like the shadow of death On the sweet face of life. Brooding, thinking, wondering What’s to be done In such a world Of jealousy and hate. I can’t go on I must go on, Not for me, But lives of others Dependent on me. Some love me, Some hate me, But I — I enjoy life. Robert Covin ’36. GROANERS He groaned because he had an ache. He had an “awful pain”. He groaned because the day was dark. He groaned because it rained. He groaned because the radio “Would make that blasted crash!” He groaned because he didn’t like The way they made his hash. He groaned when he got out of bed. He groaned all through the day. He groaned about his food and room. He groaned about his pay. I’ve known him now for two long years And never seen him smile, He hasn’t time to laugh at all He is groaning all the while. It doesn’t do Mm, any good And sure, his friends don’t gain From listening to his mumbling voice Which always does complain. So why be disagreeable? Why make yourself unkind? You may have every kind of friend If groaning’s left behind. Marcia Stevens ’36. BOOKS - A NUISANCE We’ve studied Eliot’s life and works, We’ve read some Shakespeare too. We’ve puzzled over Coleridge’s verse To make out " who was who”. We’ve studied Victor Hugo, And we’ve read “M. Perrichon,” Oh! We’ve had our school work all right Plus some “a la maison!” Shall I be glad when we complete Our course in ’36? Say! I’ll be the first one out of school And the last one back, I guess. Then I won’t have to read old books That were written long ago, I’ll keep away from them all right For with me, they are “no-go”. Marcia Stevens ' 36.

Authentic not alone for the value it may have in extending the sale of Patch Products. I E believe that experience in publishing such a school paper gives an opportunity for self-expression in literary effort and in business training that is of great value to the students. m ANY “Patchworkers”, including a number of executives of the company, received their early training in Stoneham High School. o F course, any use of Patch Products by friends of the school helps to support a local industry which has given steady employment to many Stoneham people since 1888. dftiz d.

THE STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL AUTHENTIC 47 Northeastern University DAY DIVISION COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS Offers a broad program of college subjects serving as a foundation for the understanding of modern culture, social relations, and technical achieve- ment. The purpose of this program is to give the student a liberal and cul- tural education and a vocational competence which fits him to enter some specific type of useful employment. COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION Offers a college program with broad and thorough training in the prin- ciples of business with specialization in ACCOUNTING, BANKING AND FINANCE, or BUSINESS MANAGEMENT. Instruction is through mod- ern methods including lectures, solution of business problems, class discus- sions, professional talk by business executives, and motion pictures of manu- facturing processes. COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Provides complete college programs in Engineering with professional courses in the fields of CIVIL, MECHANICAL, ELECTRICAL, CHEM- ICAL, INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING, and ENGINEERING ADMIN- ISTRATION.

Under this plan the student is able to earn a portion of his school expenses as well as to form business contacts which prove valuable in later years.
