DRAMATIC CLUB PLAY Promptly at eight o ' clock, on April 8, in the Armory Hall, the curtain rose on the annual Dramatic Club presentation. This year the play, which surpassed even the most brilliant expecta- tions was Noel Coward’s successful comedy, “I’ll Leave It To You”. The play was of course gay and hilarious and the actors, catching this light mcod, performed superbly in their various roles. Those who took part in this outstanding produc- tion were Barbara Leighton, Helen Syvertson, Marjorie Flukes, Dorothy MacKenzie, Shirley Miller, Shirley Wainwright, Everett Corthell, Charles Morrell, Charles Mclntire and Allan Mor- ton. The Dramatic Club has had a very successful season and its varied monthly meetings were greatly enjoyed. Much if its success was due to Miss Luella Dunning and the various officers and committees who worked with her. Charles Mor- rell was President of the club; Augustus Bar- wood, Vice President; Lois Cameron, Secretary; Everett Corthell, Treasurer.

FOOTBALL Coaching a new team, green in experience and ability, was what “Doc” Gordon had to put up against in moulding a football team last fall, for the previous year’s team had been made up almost entirely of seniors. The team didn’t really start to click until they met their arch enemy and Turkey Day rivals, Reading. Then one ought to have heard the fans make up for lost time in the cheering section. Of course the score wasn’t very big, 2-0, but the game was much more one-sided than the score indicates. Seniors who are singing their swan song as far as school football is concerned are Captain Jimmie Huff, Bill Truesdale, Ray Johnson, Henry Ward, Joe Tole, Ed Bruce, Sam Vacca and Brad Leach.

CROSS COUNTRY TEAM Setting an example which the hockey team and the football squad were glad to follow, the Stoneham hill and dalers, refusing to go through their season with all defeats, took Reading High School, both here and there, within a week to 24-40, and 25-37. The other runs were not so good, however, although the home harriers came very close to winning when they raced Wakefield, losing just 25 to 30. In the Beverly six-team meet, Bower, Dew- hurst, Dodge and Merrifleld, placed 23, 29, 30, and 32, respectively, which was very good be- cause of the great number of boys running. In the other meets, Stoneham lost to Woburn 20-38, 19-40; to Beverly 17-46; to Winchester 15-51; at the hands of Melrose, she suffered her worst defeat, 15-75. Boys who have run for Stoneham are : Morton, Farrell, Holden, Schumann, Bower, Dodge, Dew- hurst, Watkins, Merrifleld, Gardner, McNeill, Davies, Hanson, Blanchard, Patterson, Stetson, and Varney.

FIELD HOCKEY The field hockey squad, captained by Ruth Bowser, met its greatest rival, Melrose, in a scoreless tie in the first game of the season. The second was still more disappointing when the Stoneham girls were surprised by a Wilmington victory of 2-1. Under the guidance of two able coaches, Miss Ruth Finn and Mrs. Vera Lawson, the team finished the remainder of the season victoriously. The plucky eleven came through with the total of one defeat, one tie, and three victories. Under the excellent leadership of Captain-elect Margaret Girard, next year’s team should have an even more successful season.

Second Row: Burns, Tole, McEttrick, Truesdale, Leach, Coach Gordon. ICE HOCKEY The Stoneham High hockey team started the season with but four veterans, but before the season was over the opposing teams realized that their opponents were not lacking in fight and the ability to get what they desired. For a team that finished in third place and landed three members on the first team All Scho- lastic and several others on the second All-Star team, one must feel full of pride. Among these who were All-Scholastic are Bud Donaghey, who was captain of the team; Bob Gray, shifty center; Bob Bingham, defenceman who with Bill McLaughlin will captain next year’s team; Jimmie Huff, fast wing, and Joe Conley, reserve center. Others on the 1938 squad were Dick Rush, John Russell, Brad Leach, Bill Truesdale, Bill Plummer, Junior Downes. John Tole, Doug Sur- rette, Bud Dodge, Jig Mahoney, John Judge, Ralph Bruce, David Jenkins, Art Rich, Russ Gardner, and John Landers.

BASKETBALL Pursued by the demon hard luck, the local basket netters had a poor season. In about six or seven of their thirteen games Coach Elerin’s boys came within one or two points of clinching a victory and in one other case it was the ignor- ance of the fans that cost them a victory. Their victories came over champion Winches- ter and Woburn outfits, the former of which was a most surprising one to all. The basketeers were led by co-captains Solon Candage and Henry Ward. Other first stringers who will be in play next year are John Moora- dian, Sarge. O ' Toole, Jimmie Tucker, Nio Ming- hella, and Tony Asci. Next year there will again be co-captains leading the team this time, we’re pretty sure, on to victory. They will be John Mooradian and William O’Toole. 30 STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK COMMERCIAL CLUB First Row: Sweet, Haley, French, Hinds, McMurray, Green, Sampson, Gardner.

To our parents, whose patience and understand- ing have been constantly with us during our years of growing up, we express our love and gratitude. To our faculty, who have helped us in our search for truth, in the broadening of our hori- zons, and in the finding of a richer, deeper ex- perience, we express our appreciation. To our friends, whose interest in us has been made manifest in many ways, and with whom we like to share all our joys, we extend our greet- ings. The faith that you have had in us leaves an obligation for us to fulfil. We accept this ob- ligation as a challenge and will endeavor to meet it by living up to the best light that we have. The courageous men of all generations have looked to frontiers for adventure and achieve- ment. The frontier days are gone. The covered wagon no longer carries across the prairie land its heavy burden of courageous souls who risked their lives to And a more abundant world. No longer are there dangers from hostile tribes, from the beastq of the tractless forests. With the passing of the West, we need not feel that all frontiers have gone. Great bar- riers in the battle against disease, against social maladjustment, against unemployment, and against strife and misunderstanding between na- tions are yet to be conquered. Despite the progress that has already been made in the field of medicine, there can be no feeling of complete achievement unless such men- aces as cancer and infantile paralysis are overcome. A great deal is yet to be learned about the care of both body and mind so that they will be fit for the demands that are made of them. So long as we live in a country of abundant resources, we cannot tolerate hunger, poverty and wretchedness. So long as there are millions of unemployed, we cannot ignore our present social and economic system. So long as nations prepare for war and engage in war, failing to recognize that only in the good of all can be realized the good of any, we cannot cease our efforts to bring about clear understanding between nations. Elsewhere as here, even today are being gradu- ated hundreds of young people, eager to face these frontiers knowing full well the diffi- culty of the task they undertake. We need more guidance, training, wisdom, and perseverance. Some will seek this guidance and training in the schools of higher learning; each may seek wis- dom through a careful consideration of his own responsibility; all must develop perseverance to carry on in the face of grave disappointments. As we seek to get our bearings in the midst of such a rapidly changing world, we shall look back to the many joys and youthful friendships of our class room days in Stoneham High School. On this, our last day together, we, the Class of 1938, welcome you, our parents and friends, to our commencement exercises. Everett Corthell. CLASS HISTORY Today, on June seventeenth, as we assemble for the last time before our compasses are set for different courses through the Sea of Life, we pause to review the great joys, deep sorrows, the numerous disappointments, but still more numerous realizations, of the past four years of our great endurance test. It was in the summer of 1934 that great prepa- rations were made for our long journey north- ward. Our parents, realizing the need for devel- oping and testing our characters, with hesitation relinquished their firm hold, and helped us repair and pack the canoes with the provisions neces- sary for the first stage of our important jour- ney. The great day in September had come and the old braves, gathered around the Great Chief, stood ready to warn us of lurking dangers and temptations along the stream. But not one of us realized, until our safe haven had been left be- hind, the selfsacrifices that would have to be made nor the hardships that would be suffered. As the quiet, sheltered source of the River of Experience receded farther and farther from our view, we realized then, and only then, that we were independent and would sorely miss the care- ful guardianship of our ever-watchful parents. At first, the paddling upstream was comparative- ly easy and much of our time was passed in tak- ing advantage of our new-born freedom. Under the helpful guardianship of Mrs. Barnes, Miss Collins, Miss Fitzgerald and Mr. Miller, the canoes shot easily and lightly through the ever- increasing rapids. Much skill was required to maneuver the light craft through the jutting ledges and rocks, but much more in avoiding the hidden reefs just below the rough, treacherous surface. Several times the canoes separated, each group pursuing its own individual interests. But at 34 STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK dusk, everyone gathered at the campfire under the direction of Miss Collins. Here were sung anc- ient ballads of heroism and were told legends of our forefathers. While all members of the party were gathered in this assembly, the tribal coun- cil, consisting of head scout James Bilotta, and assistant scouts, Joseph Tole, Ruth Kidder, and Phyllis Montgomery, was chosen to serve as guides in planning the course and direction for the year. Our first large festival was held in a glen shaded with green pine, through which shone the silver rays of the moon. With a watchful eye to all details, Marion Cowles directed this first har- vest festival of the tribe of nineteen hundred thirty-eight. The proceeds from this dance were the first that we had earned to prepare and equip ourselves for the long journey ahead. By the end of June, we were obliged to seek the refuge cf a convenient bay for a much needed rest. By the following September the canoes had been repaired and stocked with the necessary provisions, and once again we pushed off from shore. This year the change in scenery and at- mosphere was very noticeable. The river no longer was shaded with dense shrubbery, for as the stream widened in its approach to the sea, the far horizon became clearer. Branching off from the main river were streams alluring at sight, but which we knew would not offer the ul- timate satisfaction of the more difficult course. Several of cur friends and classmates returned to their childhood camps, not possessing the de- termination and perseverance to follow through to the finish. Encouraging the aspirat ions of those who remained were cur advisers and help- ers: Miss Dunning, Miss Garland, Miss Smith, and Miss Leavitt. Although the progress up- stream was slow, it was steady under the skilful guidance of our chosen leaders : head scout, James Bilotta; assistant scouts, Charles Morrell, Ruth Bowser, and William Truesdale. The tribe had become accustomed to the strong undercur- rent and treacherous rapids when the month of June drew to a close. Eagerly looking forward to participation in the great competitive sport festivals in September, the canoes turned out of the swiftly flowing current and drifted shore- ward. After two months of rest and repair, we em- barked on the third lap of our four years endur- ance test. Ready to receive and aid us this year were Miss Finn, Miss Spinney, Miss Garland, and Mr. Reed. William Truesdale, head scout; and the assistant scouts, George Smith, Ruth Bowser, and Richard Rush, were chosen to direct and to lead the tribe in its divers activities. Looking forward to our separation the next year, a coun- cil, with Ruth Kidder as adviser, was appointed to make the selection of insignia. The time for these long-awaited contests had finally arrived and we eagerly entered the field of competitive sports. The first great test of our physical strength proved our ability. The run- ners, Allan Morton, George Holden, George Bower, Charles Morrell, and Ralph Stetson, were the first members of the tribe to prove their speed. Then followed the undefeated hockey team supported by Elizabeth Piper, Florence Gardner, Marjorie Duff and Ruth Bowser. Our great warriors, Edward Bruce, Amelio Asci, Wil- liam Truesdale, Joseph Tole, and James Huff, suffered heavy losses in battle but fought val- iantly to the finish. In the basketball contests with neighboring tribes our defenders were Solon Candage and Henry Ward. In the early spring season were trained also the members of the po- tential baseball team which was to include Robert Gray, Joseph Tole, Ray Johnson, Anthony Mes- sina, and Henry Ward. The climax to all these games of skill and strength was reached when the ice hockey squad, with the co-operation of Joseph Tele, Arthur Donaghey, Edward Bruce, and James Huff, succeeded in winning the high- est trophy for speed and endurance, the Greater Boston League cup. During the first year of competitive sports, the tribe of nineteen hundred thirty-eight took junior positions, patiently training itself for higher ones the next year. The di’amatic council, attempting its first major production, presented “The Late Christo- pher Bean’’ in which Norma Downs, Charles Morrell, Elizabeth Kirkpatrick, Augustus Bar- wood, and Evelyn Stinson represented us. With the co-operation of the tribe of nineteen hundred thirty-seven, we planned and success- fully gave our second musical festival, the Upper Class Dance. In the middle of June, the canoes sought shel- ter and the tribe made preparations for the finish of its testing period. In September of 1937, the tribe paddled eagerly into the swirling current which would swiftly bear it to the close of its long journey. Ready to aid and make this, our last year together, a rich- er and deeper experience were our supervising chiefs, Mr. Thibodeau, Mr. Lamson, Miss John- son, and Mr. Davis. The tribal council consist- ing of head scout, Everett Corthell, and assistant scouts, James Huff, Ruth Bowser, and William Truesdale, organized and directed the various ac- STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 35 tivities of this our fourth year. Under the direc- tion of Joseph Tole and his council, extensive preparations were made for our second Upper Class Dance in the Armory. After this success, we planned this year’s great dramatic festival, “I’ll Leave It To You” which was given by a cast including Barbara Leighton, Charles Morrell, Helen Syvertsen, Charles Mc- Intyre, Everett Corthell, Allan Morton, and Mar- jorie Flukes. Under the excellent guidance of Miss Dunning, adviser, and Charles Morrell, look- out scout, the dramatic council made great pro- gress during the year. Profiting by the training and experience of the physical contests in previous years, we eagerly entered into all competitions with neighboring tribes. The runners, captained by George Hol- den and later by George Bower, were strongly supported by younger braves but were lacking- in veteran runners. The warriors led by James Huff took their defeats as well as their victories in the spirit of good sportsmanship. The climax was reached when they successfully defeated their rivals from Reading. The field hockey team, captained by Ruth Bowser, also closed its season by defeating its ancient rival, Reading. Under the co-leadership of Solon Candage and Henry Ward, the basketball team played well. The ice hockey squad and the baseball nine, cap- tained by Joseph Tole and Robert Gray respect- ively, were strongly supported as they were the last sports of the season in which the tribe would have a part. To these respective groups we paid tribute for their physical ability and persever- ance. The highest honors for scholastic achievement and nobility of character were awarded to Marcia Kelman and Solon Candage whose guiding pres- ence in the tribe has been sensed and apprec- iated. At this stage of the journey a deep tragedy struck the entire tribe. A lone canoe bearing Anthony Messina, beloved friend and classmate, detached itself from the group and glided swift- ly down the Stream of Death. We paused to pay tribute to our departed friend, and then with heavy hearts resumed the course which was fast drawing to a close. With the approach of graduation, that day when we would receive diplomas stating that we had passed our various courses through the Sea of Life, a council was appointed to make preparations for these last exercises. First came the farewell service of worship on June twelfth, and then the last social celebration at Mount Hood on June thirteenth. This afternoon, we received our diplomas, the proof that we have successfully terminated our testing period, and now we are assembled on the banks of the River of Experience for the last time. Tomorrow we push off from shore and enter together the limitless Sea of Life where we separate, each sailing that course which leads to the realization of his dreams and ambitions. CLASS PROPHECY About three weeks ago Everett Corthell who, as president of this class is a member of the graduation committee, offered me congratula- tions. When I asked him why, he told me I was to be the Class Prophet. Needless to say, you could have knocked me over with a telephone pole. One night, after spending many previous nights in a fruitless effort to conduct a proph- ecy, I decided to forget it and get a good sleep. It proved to be a very profitable sleep, for in that sleep I had a dream and in that dream I found the future of the class of 1938. I found myself in a crowded cafe called Joe’s Joint run by Joe Conley who had gained ex- perience at the high school lunch counter. Feeling a desire to eat I looked around for a menu but I couldn’t find one. I motioned to the head waiter in the person of Joe Sullivan. When I asked him for one he gave a signal and I was met by a barrage of menus in the form of spit- balls from the other waiters including Ralph Stetson, Robert Lewis, Bill Maguire, and Charlie McIntyre. This group had also had experience in high school. I felt a nudge in my ribs and looked around into the face of a lady whose size led me to wonder if I was to be bounced. She told me I had an open-and-closed case against the waiters for assault and battery and urged me to sue. I understood all when she handed me her card. It read “Esther Rubin of Finkle, Finkle, Finkle, and Rubin, Attorneys at Law.” My meal was further disturbed by the female strong-arm squad of Lois Prescott, Florence Gardner, and Elizabeth Kirkpatrick — a group of bouncing babes if I’ve seen one, and I ' ve seen one. They were in the act of ejecting one Henry Ward who had failed to make a touch for the price of the meal. I had just started to eat again when I heard the familiar voice of Everett Corthell, God’s gift to the women, acting as maestro for the floor show. The first act was a rendition of “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” by Jimmy and Dot Landers, a couple of Irish hill-billies. The next act was a stomp marathon by Jeane Lebrun, Al- 36 STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK ice McMurray, Marjorie Duff, and Kathleen Sweet. While this number was on, the door opened and two cigars walked in. When the cloud of smoke cleared it revealed the blank faces of A1 Fullford and Fred Pinciaro who had pooled their capital and were now manufacturing high chairs My attention was drawn by a blare of horns which made the place sound like Times Square on New Year’s Eve, but it was only the din from George Holden ' s Swing Orchestra shorten- ing the life of a popular song. Bob Gray and Bill Truesdale were playing the slide trombones. It was easy to see that they had done the best of their sliding into second base. The saxaphones were taken care of by Dick McEttrick, James Ferry, Dick Rush, and Bob McCall. I had al- ways doubted if they had any sax-appeal but their performance removed all doubt. I rec- ognized “Darky” Huff at the drums but I didn’t recognize the piece he was playing. It sounded like the “Anvil Chorus” for the War Dance of the Wooden Indians at Midnight in a Mad house. Johnny Savelo, always an artist, was making life miserable for the base fiddle. Allan Morton with the clarinet and Solon Candage at the piano just added fuel to the fire. Pat Jefferson, the featured vocalist, reminded me of the last time I had my brakes tested. When the number was finished and I mean finished — Gus Barwood and Jimmy Cullen came over and asked me how I liked the band. It seemed they were the booking agents. I hated to do it so I told them the truth. There was more corn in that ensemble than in the state of Iowa. I picked up the local newspaper and turned to the society page edited by Marjorie Flukes, Winchell’s rival. The first thing which caught my eye was the announcement of the forthcoming marriage of Paul Doorly, the big butter and egg man, and Ruth Kidder. The Women’s Club, of which Marcia Kelman, Marion Lister, Ruth Bowser, and Priscilla Ireland were active members and Eileen Howard, Helen Sy- vertsen, Evelyn Stinson, and Norma Downs in- active members were holding a whist party to be held under the bleachers at the Pomeworth St. grounds. Miss Phyllis Montgomery, prom- inent debutante, was sponsoring a movement the purpose of which was to bring Fla. nearer to Massachusetts, so she wouldn’t have to travel so far each winter. The senior class at Wellesley, of which Betty Blinn, Barbara Fisher, Betty Green, and Ardis Robinson are members re- cently voted Barbara Fisher the girl “Most Likely to Graduate.” Beverly Rogers has sent a letter of protest to the Ed Bruce escort Bureau stating she thought she would get a gentleman and was awarded George Bowser instead. She further stated that she desired something more gentle such as Stan Flannigan or Maurice Fama. Charles Morrell, famous surgeon, had just re- turned from a rest cure at Monte Carlo. I had an idea Charlie would make a good doctor be- cause he always had people in stitches. I laid down the paper and let my eye wander over the restaurant for a moment. It was evi- dent by the posters on the wall that the class of ’38 had produced quite a few athletes. One ad- vertised the coming battle royal between Ray “Swede” Johnson, Brad “One-Punch” Leach, and Frank “Saved by the Bell Iron-Man” Isabelle. Now there was something that would make people forget the Mark Antony-Cleopatra af- fair. A second poster announced a tennis match between Ella Reid and Elizabeth Piper. The former High school twins had turned pro and were now looking for a net profit. The third poster announced a golf tournament between Marion Cowles, Elizabeth Alley, Marjorie Moody, and Norma Barnes, all members of the Saturday Morning Swing Club, which flourished under the tutelage of Pro Joe Tole. But suddenly the poster began to fade, my nightmare ended. The most we can do now is to hope that dreams don’t come true. GEORGE SMITH. PROPHECY OF THE PROPHET For twenty-five years after our eventful grad- uation, I had worked in Mr. Roosevelt’s Alaskan Utopia, Federal Project 1043, dispensing tutti- frutti ice cream to apathetic Eskimos. This job had been granted me through the influence of our Congressman who recognized my potential intelligence when I had issued a public statement to the effect that Stoneham would be boomed for the Presidential Convention in 1940. At the end of this period I decided to return to Stoneham. Hurrying through the North Sta- tion, I was surprised to learn that new stream- lined trains now ran between Stoneham and Boston on a strict ten minute schedule. A stately looking individual, whom I immed- iately recognized as my old school-mate George Smith, sat beside me on the train. He assured me that the old home town had remained un- spoiled and that many of my old friends were now prominent citizens. He was very modest about his own progress; but I inferred that he was now a famous musician, returning to lead his band in a parade which was to take place STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 37 that afternoon to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the town’s two most recently built schools. That afternoon with bated breath I watched the parade. In my mind’s eye I could picture a pompous George Smith, gleaming in new uni- form and shiny brass buttons, strutting down the street at the head of his band. When the parade had passed, disappointed, I turned to my nearest neighbor and asked why George Smith had not been able to appear. " George?” he said, “Didn’t you see that fat man who played the jewsharp and carried Ray- mond’s ad in Uncle Eph’s band ? That’s our Georgie!” THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF 1938 We, the Class of 1938, of the Stoneham High School, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-eight, being of sound mind and body, do hereby declare and proclaim this instrument to be our last will and testa- ment, and remove all former wills and codicils and, in doing so, dispose of our property, real or otherwise, as follows, namely, to wit: Item 1. It is our wish and desire that from our treasury, enough money be taken to enable Miss Smith to purchase a new Victrola for Room 3, in the hope that a new one will cause future classes less pain than the old one. Item 2. To the Senior Faculty, we do be- queath an additional supply of patience for use with the present Junior Class. After having had such an intelligent and industrious class as that of 1938, we know that they will be hard to teach, and that much additional patience will be needed. Item 3. For the use of Seniors, whose home- rooms may be on the third floor, we leave an ele- vator to be installed before next September, thus enabling them to reach their rooms each morning before the last bell. Item 4. For ourselves, we donate one row in the rear of Room 7, so that we may at any time, come back to dear old Stoneham High and sym- pathize with our detention friends. Also, we leave the following advice: To future classes in Room 11 A, remember two things: 1. (1) When called on, don’t guess the answer to the question involved because Mr. Hoyt knows all, and is very quick to inform you; (2) Christ- mas comes but once a year and Mr. Hoyt is no Santa Claus when it comes time to mark report cards. 2. And to those who make au practice of loit- ering in the corridors, don’t be caught in front of Room 12, Room 13, or Room 7, because Mr. Thibodeau, Miss Smith, and Miss Regish are al- ways ready and eager to escort you to the office for such sins. In witness whereof, we do hereby set our hands and seal, this seventeenth day of June, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-eight. CLASS OF 1938. Witnesses : Miss Gertrude M. Johnson. William G. Miller. Fannie Eastman. GRADUATION ADDRESS LEADERSHIP Each year at this time another graduating class passes into the ranks of the alumni. And each class is told that graduation is not an end- ing, but a beginning. We are told that our lives lie before us to do with them whatever we will; that we are separate individuals, each with the capacity for contributing something to society. Perhaps this sentiment seems trite after so many years; but because it is true, it remains the fun- damental theme of all graduations. This theme is voiced by all educators and successful leaders. They know its veracity and want us to grasp its significance. There are others who may proclaim it false. They maintain in mournful tones that human personality has no place in this age. They have accepted the attitude that we are mere cogs in a wheel of time that rolls along feverishly to no definite end. This is the rationalistic cry of those people who today are part of an irresolute multitude because they assumed this attitude. These people have told us that in this complex civilization of modern times, and in this so-called machine age, individual personality is submerged and lost. Although this might seem to be the outcome of a technical society, this same complexity has opened up new fields of work and has offered new opportunities for personal development. Instead of crushing personality and individualism, this society has made them more to be desired. In practically any field that one can think of the mere mention of that field brings to the mind the names of leaders who are outstanding in that line of work. There must always be leaders. Since time be- gan leaders have sprung from the ranks. Orig- inally the leaders were the physically strong be- 38 STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK cause their followers wanted to trust themselves to someone who could protect and lead them safely. Gradually, as our civilization has changed, the qualities which determined our lead- ers have changed. The people still need to have faith in their leaders, faith that they can and will live up to ideals. Those leaders should be chosen who have a growing conviction of what society can be, and will work to bring about pro- fitable changes. Jane Addams of Hull House was one of those. Through her untiring efforts she has made not only great strides in social ser- vice, but also in moral service. She has made the world better by her having lived in it. An- other great social worker was Booker T. Wash- ington, who cast off the shackles of slavery and became a college president. His success as a leader does not lie in this fact, however. The service he rendered his fellow men was taking a race of ignorant, helpless, despised and dis- couraged people and leading them to a new life and a place of importance in the world this service is what has deemed him a true leader. But leadership has its price. Although it does take some ability to manage a faction or corpo- ration, it takes far more to germinate a new vision and cling to an ideal which urges one for- ever onward — never resting in development, never vanquished in adversity. A leader is one who leads, not one who dominates. He helps the people put their needs and desires into definite formation and plans with them the method of attainment. A leader must subjugate himself to serve. His success turns upon the service he renders. Abraham Lincoln in his desire to rid the country of slavery had the country’s future at heart. Yet he carried a great part of the burden alone, and through his service a great favor was done for humanity. H is ideal led him forever onward, and his willingness to; serve ac- complished his purpose. Since from our ranks the leadership of tomor- row must develop, we must understand its prin- ciples. What are the qualities of a leader? How can we attain these qualities? The underlying quality is a desire to serve in whatever field we enter. If we, from this moment on, can earnest- ly attempt to set purposeful goals in our own field, and live up to the ideals we have accepted; if we can courageously stand up for the best and buck public resentment and derision when we know we are in the right, we must attain, at least in part, our goals. We must not be discour- aged when things do not develop so easily as we might wish. Perseverance and the vision of the goal will generally bring us through. Thomas Edison kept experimenters at work for years searching for the thing he wanted. Over nine thousand experiments were made without obtain- ing the desired result. A visitor to his laboratory in discussing his apparent failure said, “Then all those experiments were practically wasted.” “Not at all, " replied Mr. Edison, “I know nine thousand things not to do” But Edison finally found what he wanted; his persistence gave him victory and today each electric light bulb is a tribute to the untiring efforts of an inventor and a leader. If we are overcome by the first opposition, we deserve to be, because it is we ourselves who can overcome this opposition if we really want to. If we have a strong ideal, much can be accom- plished; little is impossible. As someone has so aptly said, “We can better play this game of life if we know where the goalposts are!” Every obstacle we overcome adds to the score at the end of the game. Today, in all walks of life and work, we lack good leadership. To each of us comes the chal- lenge to fill these gaps. We must make the effort at any rate to be leaders in our own fields. Although that effort brings a great responsibility, the satisfaction of exerting one’s might, and leading grandly toward some end greater than oneself is sufficient reward for any leader. On the other hand, it is clear that we cannot all be leaders, most of us will be followers. Natur- ally, this must be so since we constitute the group that our leaders work for. But this does not mean that we are insignificant to society. On the contrary, it is our duty to choose who shall lead us, and most important, to what end we are to be led. Here we can see that the pro- gress of le adership, and, as a result, civilization, rests, in the final analysis, primarily with the followers. Very well then, how are we to choose the cor- rect leaders ? How can we determine how to obtain the realization of our ideals? First of all we must make sure what our ideals are. We can decide this by testing these ideals to see if they are in harmony with our moral convictions. It now remains our task to choose the leadership which will aid us in realizing these ideals. In other words, we are actively working for an ideal through someone else whom we have chosen to guide us. If, however, he breaks our faith by spurning the ideal, we must reject him as our leader and on finding another leader whom we consider desirable, we must throw our sup- port to him wholeheartedly. The moral development of society is also our STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 39 responsibility, since we as parts make up the sum of society. If our own individual consciences are primed so that we automatically work for the best, social conscience will also reach a new high. The one fault that stands out with most fol- lowers is their passive indifference and careless- ness in respect to their reaction to leadership. We must watch out for this pitfall. It is ex- tremely necessary that we do not lose our will power under the domination of a powerful leader; we must not be swayed like reeds before the wind by eloquent promises and gaudy plans. We must take the pains to become acquainted with the fundamental principles of all new leaders and to determine the value and practicability of their plans. We must analyze and test before we sanction new and untried developments. We must always be aware of what is going on about us — not passive recipients of changes, but active bringers-about of changes. A powerful example of what such an attitude can accomplish was shown recently when Thomas E. Dewey, New York County District Attorney, began almost single handedly to combat the rac- kets in New York. Through his efforts and ear- nest desire to rid the country of such profiteer- ing, he has succeeded in crippling dozens of gangs and has overthrown an empire of organ- ized crime by jailing seventy-two top racketeers. Dewey started out as an active citizen who op- posed gangdom vigorously and through his self- efficiency and untiring efforts, he has reached a position where he can do much. In the same way wo can do much if we earnestly want to. I think the whole philosophy of ideal leaders and active followers is portrayed concisely in the words of William Jowett Riley when he said, “I can live creatively and follow in the footsteps of my Maker, if, taking things as I find them, I breathe upon them and change them for the better.” If we can do this, we shall have found the secret of life itself. Charles F. Morrell, Jr. ORCHESTRA One of the most important activities in the High School is the Orchestra. The members of this group meet every Tuesday afternoon under the capable direction of Mr. Dalglish, the music supervisor of the Public Schools. The orchestra provides music for all the school assemblies as well as for graduation. An interesting fact is that the orchestra now owns ten instruments which anyone may borrow without cost provided that he or she takes les- sons. These instruments were purchased for the benefit of school pupils with the money raised when the student body gave operettas, a feature which Mr. Dalglish expects to resume next year. The present members of the orchestra are Norma Downs, Dean Strail, Harvey Stone, Jean LeBrun, Isabelle Jacques. Albert Warren, Charles Davies, Virginia Barnes, Dorothy Chynoweth, Helen Ad- zigian, Bill Jenkins, Austin Jenkins, Edward Proodian, Dorothy Strogilis, George Marshall, Kenneth Vandehoff, Richard Lent, Albert Bur- dett, Kenneth Miller, and Jack Sullivan. BASEBALL HISTORY The Stoneham High Baseball Team, playing behind some clever hurlers and rather weak bat- ters, surprised everyone by the number of wins it turned out. The boy who led the local players to victory so many times was pitcher Jimmy Gerard, the other pitchers being Don Chase and Johnny Rus- sell. John Tole, second baseman, and the surprising centerfielder, “Bucky” Bower and Captain Bob Gray, lead all in the batting average. Among the players of the local roster are John Mooradi- an, Doug Surrette, Dick McEttrick, Art Rich, sophomore catcher, " Hink” Ward, “Sarge” O’- Toole, Bill Truesdale, John Tole, Jimmy Tucker, and John Russell. SENIOR CLASS BANQUET The annual senior class banquet was held June 13 at Mount Hood Country Club in Melrose. A delicious roast turkey dinner was enjoyed by a large majority of the graduating class. Everett Corthell, the class President, served as toast- master and the highlight of the evening was the reading of the class statistics. Chaperons were Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Mr. and Mrs. Nadeau, Mr. and Mrs. Varney, Mr. and Mrs. Miller, Miss Spinney, and Mr. Thibodeau. CHEER LEADERS Each year from among the student body a group of pupils are chosen to lead the cheering at all football games. Those who so ably did it throughout the 1938 football season were Marion Cowles, head cheer leader; Marion Lis ter, Bar- bara Fisher, Elizabeth Alley, Lois Cameron, Anetta Murphy, Everett Corthell, and Stanley Perry. iO STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK STONEHAM HIGH GRADUATES . . . admitted without examination. . . . start advanced if you have had previous commer- cial training. . . . are eligible for the life-long service of Placement Department upon graduation.
