As he flew over the cliff, he hun.mel, “Don’t Worry About Me Fll (Jet Along!” There was not much danger that he would get hurt, but there was that he would not be four.d as he would land in untracked snow anil cou’d not find a trail. The guides hurriedly divided tho ];eople into parties to hunt foi ' the lost mystery man. They had to go on a round-about trail to arrive at the place where he would have landed. Here they separated and each gi ' oup took a different ilirection in whi ' h to hunt. John Tole, trying to get around with his cane, seemed quite puzzled over the disappearance cf this particular ski-expert. Li.i ping aiound in the best w ' ay he could, he stated that he would hunt as far as the sky until he found either the skier or a Star(r). Personally, we don’t think he found the skier! Some of the teachers found it their duty to stay to watch the other events. Olive Teakles, the skate-fancier, had begun her well-practiced routine. Mr. Hoyt, Miss Leavitt, and Mr. Davis called to the others to come back and see a “Teakettle spout out!” Hearing all this commotion, the grou]) started back looking rather n orbiil about the disappearing Class B.

Most of them came back, but as they looked ever the group, “Petie” along with with Helen Mc- Lernon was missing. Now there were three to limit for. All this time Olive was doing beauti- fully. She jumped over six barrels — or did some- one say there were five barrels and Harvey Stone? “Dunga” ariived on the ice in a cute pink silk costume, in which he did a ballet for the specta- tors. Virginia Barnes, accom])anied by her orches- tra, sent rhythm to his feet. Yes, too much rhythm, I ' or instead of playing the “Blue Danube” she started iilaying the “Three Little Fishes”. This had drastic results on Dunga’s dance, but he con- tinued, valiantly. At the conclusion of this enter- tainment the groiqis again started to hunt for the lost skier. In one group were Ralph Bruce, Mar- guerite French, Mousie, Anna Howe, Miss Smith and Mr. Thidodeau. They started off in the direc- tion tliat the lost skier had taken. Before long, they came upon some very funny looking ti-acks. These were what seemed to bo a con bination of a snow-shoe turtle and a mountain goat. They hur- ried’y followed these tracks in hopes of finding the mysterious missing man, but were they surjirised to see “Petie” riding gracefully upon the bony back of Helen McLernon. We still can’t figure out where the goat tracks came from- Helen and “Petie” joined the group as they continued the search. Just then a strange sound came to their ears. They followed the sound and soon came to a strange looking form sticking out of the snow. They rushed to the spot and pulled out the object. There, they stood in open amazement, for, in the snow amid a tangle of skis, poles, and straps, sat TIGER BURNS! (Surprised?) By Anna Sampson and Betty Potter.

Ernie was the first Blue and White hoy to show in the big six meet and place seventh in the race. Stoneham refused to go through the entire season defeated so they downed Reading on the Reading course 28-30. In the big six .rect Ernie Farrell finished seventh with McNeil, Dodge, Davis, English and Carleton finishing 23rd, 28th, 36th, 40th and 42nd, respectively. HOCKEY Starting the season with but four veterans, the hockey team climbed the deciding game to Arlington. Bill Plummer and Dan Davis hopped in to complete the team and added much to the morale as well as to the scoring power. The team placed four on the All-Star team. Through the course of the season the boys had five wins, three losses, and two ties for 12 points. Tole, Russell, Bingham, and McLaughlin were honored with fii’St team positions on the Alh-Star group. Joh nny Russell was unanimously voted to cap- tain the ’39-’40 team. BASKETBALL This year ' s team had a wa.V of coring up from a sure defeat to srpie ' ch their opponent by one or two points. The hoopsters were led by co-captains Bill OTcole and Johnny Mooradian. Other seniors who contributed much to the winning were Jim Tucker, Tom Minghella, and Jim Ferry. Next year there will be just one captain, Laurie Orsillo has been chosen to fill the shoes of Sarge and Moo. FOOTBALL Under a new coach. Bill Miller, the 1938 foot- ball squad elevated from last year’s cellar rating to the show position of the Middlesex League. The Blue and White went through an eight game season with three wins and five defeats. Their best ac- complishment was holding the hefty Maynard team to two points. Artie Rich, the 2()()-pounder and fullback, wa.- elected captain for the 1939 team. According to past performances this team is going places in a big way. BASEBALL The Stoneham baseball nine concealed itself behind the clever pitching of Johnny Russell and opened its bag of tricks to fool many of the fan opponents. The seniors are well represented on the tea n and when they go seven of the nine berths will be left open. The teams, as a whole, completed a very good season and also turned in some good batting averages. CHEERING SQUAD Many pretty young ladies graced our cheering squad this fall on the athletic field. Led by Lois Cameron, our colors made a fine showing on the sidelines as well as on the gridiron. Members of the squad were Virginia Bates, Natalie Ringland, Betty Qualter, Annetta Murphy, Barbara Lent, Shir- ley Buckler, Elizabeth Leach, Jean Holden, Ned Patterson, and Howard Dean. 32 STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK GRADUATION HONORS THE MacDONALD MEDALS FOR SCHOLARSHIP, CHARACTER and GOOD INFLUENCE in the SCHOOL ELSIE COOMBS GRACE MEISTER WILLIAM H.

Knowing that words cannot adequately express the love and gratitude we hold in our hearts for our parents we greet them with fine realization that their sacrifices, understand- ing, and patience during the past years, have made this day possible. We recognize, too, the appreci- ation we owe our faculty who have patiently pre- pared us for the future. To all our friends, we ex- tend a sincere welcome. The present world crisi.s has force l upon all youth a situation as difficult as any yet faced by graduating classes. Nevertheless, as we go out into the troubled world with eagerness to find our places, we accept the challenge though the way be hard. We will remember that greatness often con- sists in overcoming obstacles. We are willing to work hard to achieve success. After all what is the most important factor of success in various vocations for men and women ? Is it physical strength or speed? Is it ability to repeat an action day after day without variation ? Is it unusual memory of facts? Or, is it ability to see new objectives and to invent adapt, and use labor saving tools and methods for attaining one’s purpose ? If we are to succeed in the world and to be hapny in our lives we must remember to think clearly in all situations. We must not jump at conclusions and later be sorry for our mistakes, but instead we must learn to analyze carefully and weigh the facts before making decisions. The world is really desperate in its need of men and women who, by their original thinking, can do better what is already being done, and who can do nobly what is yet to come. In. this respect, the ti res are richer in opportunity than we have ever known. It is our hope that you, our parents and friends, will see the fulfillment of the dreams we have today as we welcome you to our graduation exercises. THE HISTORY OF THE CLASS IN NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS The other day my parents told me that my desk must be cleared out because the clutter was insufferable. Realizing the ti ' uth in what they said, I started with gusto, but slowed down when I came to a stack of old newspaper clippings. Upon read- ing them I found that they were all about oui ' class ami all the activities in which we have taken part during our four years in high school. I have saved a few to read here tonight. — INTRODUCTION -- Wednesday, September 4, 193.5 SCHOOL OPKNS FOR FALL TERM Entering k’reshman Class Most Promising in History of Stoneham Schools The faculty lecognizes the excellent merit of this year’s freshman class. Brilliant futures are seen for such talented students. They will bear watching. December 16, 1935 LANDSLIDE FOR SHANTELER AND MAHONEY Class of 1939 Elects Officers The party machine was well organized, and the results of the balloting were widely acclaimed. Elected on the same ticket were Barbara Menson, secretary, and Olive Teakles, treasurer. There was inactically no o]iposition as the class presented a solid front. .lanuary 21, 1936 LOCAL ARTISTS ON AIR -lunior Thespians of the Air-Waves Make A Bid For Fame Budding radio performers, under the direction of Miss Helen Collins, produced a |day of Stephen Foster’s life over WNAC in Boston. The excep- tional ability shown by these youthful inofessiona L made this an outstanding feature. Histrionic careers are predicted for several. May 10, 19.36 LOCAL SOCIETY NOTES Freshman Class Comes Out The charming debutantes of the class of 1939 were launched on their social careers at a very brilliant afternoon affair. LTnique and novel were the elimination and lucky spot dances. Hoodsies were daintily served. January 4, 1937 SINGLE SESSION INAUGURATED Rooms in High School Divided Junior and senioi- high schools meet together once more with the faculty and student body mak- ing all necessary adjustments. January 12, 1937 SHANTELER RE-ELECTED Sophomore Class Election Held STONEIIAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK ‘■ 1 o4 A vote of confidence was given the present regime as classmates went to the polls.

October 28, 1937 JOHN MOORADIAN WINS ELECTION Old Party Machine Breaks Down John Mooradian won a following from the politically-minded juniors and literally strolled into office. Opposition was laughed into oblivion when the final vote was tabulated. April 2, 1938 POST OFFICE OFFICLALS EXPAND STAFF Heavy Alails Are Reported United States mail has been so heavy in this paiticulai ' precinct of the city that countless extra letter carriers have been added to the force. Ujon investigation, authorities found the influx of mail consisted of warning cards. October M, 1938 MOORADIAN TRIUMPHS AGAIN F’inal Election of Senior Class Held Going to the ballot boxes for the last time, the class of 1939 chose John Mooradian to rej)- resent them at graduation. He is considered one of the most popular members of tbe class. Con- gratulations are in order. Novembei- 25, H)38 SOCIAL EVENT High School Dramatic Club Holds Third Annual Play The High School Dramatic C’ub sailed smoothly through their annual play, “Wings of the Morn- ing”, with an able cast. On this occasion, the “Authentic” with many new and different features, made its first apnearance of the year. February 18, 1939 “AUTHENTIC” STAFF SPONSORS DANCE Dance Held in Gym Brings Out Unexpected Throng To stirulate interest in the school magazine, a dance was held wdth members of the “Authentic” staff arranging the program. A weird woman from the east side — of Park Street — told fortunes. February 28, 1939 LETTER ASSEMBLA’ HELD School Gives Recognition For Athletic Prowess Athletes who have gained fame by represent- ing the school on the gridiron, on the basketball floor, and on the ice, received suitable aw’ards. In the contests with neighboring institutions of learn- ing, they played their parts admirably, keeping the school high in the athletic world. March 31, 1939 SOCIAL EVENT Upper Class Dance Held The social event of the year took place in Armory Hall when the senior and junior classes sponsored their annual formal dance.

Gym With talent recruited from every corner of the high school, Miss Alice King whipped into shape a variety show ' which defies comparison. Opening music was by the Modern Music Club under the direction of Mr. Carmen Buono. Dancing followed to the music of Miss Virginia Barnes’ Ryhthm Quintet. April 28, 1939 HONORS ANNOUNCED AT STCNEHAM HIGH Senior Assembly Held The preliminary list of honor students, those who have maintained an average of “B” for the entire four years, was announced to the senior class. At that meeting the names of those to re- ceive the MacDonald Medals were also revealed. Grace Meister, Elsie Coombs, and William Mc- Laughlin wore chosen because of their scho’astic standings, their characters, and their leadership ability. The wdnning of this honor is looked upon as being most praiseworthy and as being a goal toward which all students should strive. May 12, 1939 GRADUATION COMMITTEE FORMED Plans For Class Day Program Get Under Way At a meeting of the graduation committee, Mr. Watson gave definite tasks to each of the eleven members. These tasks included taking care of the class gift, the motto, the banquet, and decorations. The work .‘ ' oon got under way. STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 35 May 19, 1939 PRIZE SPEAKING CONTEST HELD Miss Ruth Finn Presents Seventh Annual Contest Under the able direction of Miss Ruth Finn, contestants fi ' o.n the senior high school have shown marked growth in ])oisc and in inteipretation. On the same evening awards were made to the mem- bers of the regular high school orchestra who had been participating faithfully for two years. Also, members of the Modern Music Club worthy of the honor were given awards for their work. EDITORIAL Always, when a class graduates, there is a feeling of sadness which is hidden beneath the spirit of gladness, not because we are leaving the school itself, but because so many relationships which we have made there will have to be broken. We may go back to school and find it as we left it, but we will never meet in the halls the people who were here when we knew the place so well. Naturally, we are very glad to be through, but wherever we are when school opens in Septem- ber, each will think of his classmates and wonder if they are thinking of him. We are all taking something with us; friend- ships, general learning, and experiences which have better fitted us for life. We hope we have left behind, besides our reputations which are good, bad, or indifferent, something of ourselves, our dreams, our hopes, and our enthusiasm. CLASS PROPHECY After I had left Stoneham in 1939 I headed for the West Coast and invented a decive that picks and seeds oranges in one operation. This device can be bought for only a dollar and is really a household necessity. It is guaranteed to give per- fect satisfaction. Oh, paidon me, I thought this was a sales talk. I began to yearn to see the old home town. I bought a New York paper and saw a large advertisement of the Stoneham World’s Fair in 1950. Large posters and pictures were attached to posts and barns all through the West and Mid- west. After I got over the shock of hearing how Stoneham had grown I realized I was in New York. At the airport I tried to buy a ticket for Boston but was informed that the planes now ran exclu- sively to Stoneham. If I cared to, I could take a train from Stoneham to Boston, or I might take a bus which ran at three minute intervals to accom- modate shoppers to Stoneham. Scoop Downes, Mike Geragos ian, a ' d Bob Dodge were in charge of publicity for the World’s Fair and they were doing a remarkable job. I met Bill “Grover Whalen” McGah, who was all excited over meeting the Russian Prince Johnniski .Iiulgo- wiswy, the famous plaghog. Bill insisted he had time to phone me the highlights of the fair. Large posters were advertising Dan Davis, test driver, who guaianteed to wreck any car ])roduced. We paused for the lecision in the beauty contest in which first place was won by Anna Howes, with Helen McLernon a close second; third place went to Betty Blaisdell. The bathing beauty contestants wei-e the city’s best, among them such stars as 1. Mary Emmanuel, 2. Gertrude Ford, 3. Norma MacCrea, 4. Beulah Martin, 5. Eleanor McLeod, 6. Marjorie Werre, 7. Doris Cha.r.bers, 8. Mary Scurto, Lillian Batchelder, and 10. Doug Knowlton — whoops, how did he get in there ? The barkers advertising Russ Carleton as the Muscle Man were Mark Hill and Larry Sanchez. Bill McGah was very enthusiastic over the acpiat ' c show, under the direction of Len and Margaret Gir- ard, and boasting such stars as Ann Sanijison, Olive Boulter, Louise Fitzgibbons, Betty Lena, Shir- ley Lane, Ruth McLaughlin, and, of course. Bod “Weismuller” Cioss. At the science exhibit we saw more of my old friends. Jimmy Samour who was trying to devise a new toothpick and his assistants Vin Keating and Norm Flanders. Others from the old school were Ed Daly Arnie Burgamaster, Charlie Price, and Joe Savelo. The truant officers. Win Cutts and Ralph Bruce were running around looking for stray students. In the sport center there was a wrestling show between Mike Orgettis and Nick Messina, with Harvey Stone refereeing. At the idngside, we saw Phyllis McKenna and Betty Potter, the two movie stars. The ushei-s at the arena were Gordon May, George Leonard, Bill Meagher, Charley Parker and Ken Sumner. Outside, who was selling tickets but Virginia Saundei ' S. As we came out of the arena we saw Governor John Mooradian’s car whiz past. With him were his bodyguards. Dean Strail and Harold Cleveland, and his chauffeur, Ed McColgan. (It looks as though we’ll have a new governor wit i Ed as chauffeur.) As we turned the corner, we saw “Sarge” Bill O’Toole talking to three other officers who we thought were Gordon Converse, Tvairy Shatiteler, and Doug Surrette. It was hard to recognize the n behind the large bay wimlows they had acijuired fi’om chasing thieves. Up the road a ])iece there was a wagon for i)eop!e who wanteti to see th( sights. Inside of it were Shirley Wainwright, Bea- 36 STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK trice Binner, Evelyn Babson, Edith Pinciaro, Hazel VViswel! and Geraldine O’Grady. Outside, fixing a wagon wheel were Bud Elers and Jim Keating. As I st()i)ped to talk with them, who should stroll by but Virginia Smith, Mary Fa loti and Gen O’Melia, hanging onto three rich looking old men. Stoneham had now become an imijortant sport center. The Bo.ston Bees’ Ifanchise was brought to Stoneham to form the Stoneham Cubs. They were batthng it out with the New York Yankees for the World Series. Mayor Tole was on hand to throw out the first ball to start the series. As he bounced the ball in the direction of the plate for Senator “Giii” Mahoney to sneak up on, we lookeil the lineup over. The million dollar infield consisteti of Petie Minghella lb, Tom Rees 2b, Bill Plummer 3b, and George Allin ss. The outfield had as stars, Dick Joyce, Dick Miller and Earl Trites. The battery was Dick Fitzbiggons c and “Iron Ar.r.” Callahan pitching. It will look more like lead after the first inning. Doug Davidson was bat boy and Glen Blanchard, manager. My, we expecte l greater things from Glen. Behind the dugout to give their moral support were Margaret Candage, Ginnie Bates, and Bill McLaughlin. Lois Camei-on, Gin Conant, and Betty Qualter were lead- ing the cheering section. Having decided to take in a show, we were delighted to see featured in lights, the names of Eunice Clark attd Mio Minghella. The cast re- minded us of a Stoneham High A. A. Show. Emma Caswell jdayed 0 ])ix)site Jimmy Tucker, and Elsie Coombs opposite Herb Mahn, others in the cast were V’irginia Clausen, and Harry Ferry. We got rather bored with the picture, so went to a restau- rant to find “Duga” Kennett ami Mousey Fitzgerald slinging hash. Dick Del Rossi, Tony Asci, Janet IMcHale and Victoria Ko])rek were waiters and waitresses, but would have made better dishwash- ers. The loom was filled with peojile from the fair. Eniie Farrell had a new invention which was supposed to clean eye glasses as you walked along. He was trying to sell it to Gertrude Todd, while Olive Tcakles, Annetta Murphy and Dot McHale were giving the other custorei ' s demonstrations until the floor show started and they were forced to sit lown. The first part of the show was a ballet daoce by Barbara Wright. In the chorus were Lillian Dunbar, Eleanor Dirkman, Pauline Finnegan, and Barbara Howes. We started to walk out before the next number, a quartet of hill-billy singers. Pat Humphrey, Arlene Hands, Mary Kenney, and Dorothy Kinsley were to murder a : O” ' . We broke into a run as Ihey began. The do rs were open and Jean Holden, the check girl, threw us our hats as we strumbled past. W’e thought we had seen everything, but realized we hadn’t when we came upon Marjorie Leete and Eleanor Kuhn having a hair-pulling contest, while Nat Ringland, Barbara Monson, Marion Newcomb, Barbara Nay, ami Barbara McDonough looked on, and held the crowd back. Up at the corner a crowd was gathering so we went to see the attraction. Here Helen Rudd and Stan Perry were jitterbugging, while Charlie Davies played the diums. After the ilance, Barbara Lent passed the hat around, but failed to get much because Ruth Moi ' - rison and Helen Mosher were picketing them for shorter and (luieter songs. After we had seen the Fair, we went to the business section and were amazed at the size of the buildings. We saw the town, but felt that it was better in those saner days and so we started for the c)uiet West. Oh, I knew I forgot something! I didn’t see whether or not the town hall and post office had been com pleted. Francis Burns. PROPHECY OF THE PROPHET After returning to the United States in 1949 from a vagabond trip around the world that I had started on the night of our eventful graduation in 1939, I decided to return to the flourishing city of Stoneham. Climbing aboard the Stoneham bound Flying Yankee with the feeling of a homing pigeon in my heart, I was soon on my way to my home town. To my surprise, five minutes later, I was in Stoneham, though my stomach was just pass- ing through Merlford. As the streamliner came to a stop, I got off and walked up to the elaborately decorated square where I could see a parade in progress. Bands were playing, people shouting, and ban- ners flying, one of which told me that it was “Tiger” Burns Day in Stoneham. It seems that Mr. Burns had become a great lifeguard and the citizens of the town were paying tribute to him for his good work. I soon learned from an old friends that a banquet sponsored by the well-known Stoneham order of The Old Ladies’ .League for Disabled Lifeguards was to be held in his honor the same night. After being pei’suaded to buy a ticket by three tough looking gentlemen, I had to go to the banquet. That n ' ght the Old Armory Hall had a capac- ity crowd including many celebrities such as the newly elected President of the United States, STONEIIAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 37 F. D. R. Jones, Michael J. Curley, Governoi- of Massachusetts, and other state officials. At the head of the table sat Francis (Save-a-life-a-day) Burns in white tie and tails. He gave a short din- ner speech for about three hours and when the guests had been awakened they cleared the hall. Before I went I met “Tiger” in person. He told me a few fish stories about some of his hair-raising ex- periences and I was assured that he was his old self because he took me over to the banquet table, picked up a tea cup, and told me how the Stoncham High Hockey team would win its next game against the Newton High team. THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF 1939 We, the Cla:s of 1939, of Stoneham High School, located in the Town of Stoneham, County of Middlesex, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, United States of America, fully awai ' e of the uncertain- ties of life, and being now of sound mind and body, do hereby declare and proclaim this to be our last will and testament, and do hereby devise, bequeath and d ' spose of our earthly possessions in the fol- lowing manner: Item I. The interior decorators of our class EGO 1 to think it fitting to leave to Mr. Davis eight pictures of marine life to be placed at equal inter- val.s around the room. He . II. To the unfortunate few who are so often tardy, and to whom that last minute means .so much, we dedicate a new escalator to run from just inside the door to the third floor, thus en- abling them (I hope, I hope, I hope) to reach their home-rooms on time. Item III. For the use of all future classes in room twelve, we leave two dozen fur coats, thus enabling Mr. Thibodeau to keep his windows open at all times. Item IV. Because of the constant usage of the wooden seats in front of the office, we would like to donate two very soft cushions, to be kept in the chairs at all ti.i es. These, we hope, will relieve the hard feelings of those who get sent to the office. In witness whereof, we do hereby set our hands and seal, this sixteenth day of June, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-nine. Witnessed by: Fannie M. Spinney William G. Miller Luella M. Dunning PROGRESS FOR PROSPERITY On May 1, 1939 the gates of the New York World’s Fair swung open. Thousands of inter- ested people pouretl into the broad avenues which radiate from the theme center, the Peri.sphere and the Try Ion. The former, the largest globe ever made by man, i-epresents the world around us. The latter, a three-sided spii ' c towering one hundred feet into the air, symbolizes asi)irations. Here is the world of tomorrow built with the tools of tixlay. The fair has stolen a backwaid glance over the pages of history and made real the meaning of American indeijencience. It is dedicated to the 150th anniver.sary of the launching of the Consti- tution with George Washington as president. While the nations abroad are subjugated by the w.ll of dictators, Americans are feeling a deeper grati- tiule for their independence. Although the fair makes us conscious of the past, it also has its eye on the future. The ex- hibits at the fair represent progress in the field of industry, science, and culture. They are entiiely devoted to life, its pre.-ervation ami betteiment, not to its destruction. Thei ' e are no monuments to gasmasks, bombers, and tiewly developed war im- plements. The Medicine and Health Hall stresses the importance of Man’s health and long life. In this great hall stands a twenty-two foot symbol of man whose heart-beat seems to fill the whole building. Each beat seems to cry, “I want to live.” The Communications Building predicts that distance will become as nothing. Television, which appears to us as a remarkable feat today, will become as common as the telephone. In the future space will be contracted more and more as the air-waves are brought further under man’s command. In the Chrysler Building may be seen man ' s progress from footpath to stratosphere. There is a hope that in the rocket-ship we can so;r.etime contact worlds beyond ours. There are automobiles which will afford us even greater safety, luxury, and speed. We accei)t as a mattei- of course the luxurious and easy life that is ours today as a result of years of tireless lesearch and inventions. It is a stai-tling contiast to the crude and hai ' d life of our forefathei ' s. Oui ' s is an era of speed and we find little time to enjoy the simple things in life. An old Chine e statesman on visiting the United States asked, “Why do they hurry so ' .’ ’ The reply was, “To gain a half hour.” “What 38 STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK will they do with it?” mused the thoughtful old Chinese. We have devoted ourselves to develop- ing- the material things of life and turned to the spiritual when all else failed us. Now we should ask if our civilization, like others of the past, will come crashing down from the weight of its own materialism. Whether or not it does depends on how strong the people are within themselves. During the last few years many have com- pared the situation in the United States to that of Rome before its downfall. The Roir.ans valued lu.xury and bodily comforts above all things. They were not content with the quiet of their homes but demanded excitement and outside entertain- ments, such as the gladiatorial combats and chariot races. Like the Romans we are inteiested in contests of excitement, in horse races, in dog- races, and in prizefights. The poor in Rome de- pended upon the government and charity and they would sell their votes to the politicians who pro- mised them benefits. There are still to be found dug- into the pavements in the forum of the Caesars, circles used in games by the unemployed while waiting for relief money. It has been inferred that our government has bought voles by enlarging relief rolls. Roman public buildings were constructed at government expense. Many of our municipal buildings owe their establishment to the government. Roman art was spectacular and ornate and corresponds to our extreme mo lernism. The Romans grew weak and dependent. Peojjle from other countries filled the ranks of the army and governmental positions. Their homes were morally weak and divorce was commoii. Romans were looking after their own interests and failed to cooperate with one another for the good of the empire. In America, the number of dependents is increasing and the breaking down of the home is just cause for alarm. Rome fell because the people were so intent on extravagant living that they allowed corrujition in politics and neglected to check those men who were vying for power. From the time of Caesar the history of was a story of conquest. One emperor rose only to be overthrown by another. The Roman army was weakened because of these internal conflicts. Rome was nothing but a shell and cracked when attacked from without. If we would learn by Rome’s experience we must avoid her weaknesses. We must protect ourselves from foreign ideas in government by defending the democratic ideal. A wall to safeguard this ideal may be made up of culture, education, and religion. Evidence that there is a rebirth in culture is seen in better radio programs and a keen interest in theatre, music, and art. Education today emphasizes an in- ilividual responsibility to cooperate with a group and the importance of educating adults. An attempt lias been made abroad to stamp out religion, but it is still a great farce in America. The fact that the fair openeil in the Temple of Religion bears out this statement. We, the youth of America, inherit this great material progress. With it may we buHd a Peri- sphere, a world of tomorrow, in which our aspira- tions, like the Trylon, point upward. Beatrice E. Binner. THE COMMERCIAL CLUB The Girls’ Commercial Club of 1939 under the leadership of Miss Eleanor Smith has enjoyed a most interesting and active year. At the first meeting held in the Assembly Hall, Margaret Girard was elected president, Mary Ken- ney, vice-president, Anna Sami)son, secretary, and Jean Ho-lden, treasurer. After the election of these officers, the president read the Constitution of the Commercial Club of Stoneham High School. The club decided to meet the first Wednesday of each month in the Assembly Hall. The activities of the year were varied. Sev- eral speakers encouraged the girls with heli)ful advice on securing positions and keeping them. A visit was made to Hood’s Milk P-lant in Charles- town. On Friday evening, IMarch 10, the club’s first social event of the year, a barn dance, was held in the gymnasium of the high school and en- joyed by all who attended. The Commercial Club encourages and wishes next year’s club members an eventful year. GEORGE ALLIN George is the type of individual one can always get along with. He is always willing to do what is required of him. Good -luck, George. THOMAS REES Retiring, yet attentive, Tom’s accounting ability will help him to attain his objective. Our best wishes for the coming years. HERBERT MAHN Herb, quiet member of 12GP, is very mechanic- ally inclined. We hope his opportunity for success will present itself soon. .ACTIVITIES: Basketball 2, .V. .A. Activities 1, Honor Roll 3.
