The officers of the Club are as follows: Pres., Richard Arnold; Vice-Pres., Charlotte Brundage, Charles Kerrigan, Arthur Bridgman; Sec., Dorothy Greenquist; Treas., George Saunders. A grand program for a winter carnival was planned which included sports events and a ball. The sports included a hockey game, various skating, skiing, and snowshoeing races. Prizes were awarded to the winners. The Carnival King and Queen were Richard Arnold and Allison Moore. The success of the Winter Carnival was due largely to the work of " Doc " Gordon, and we hope the students will continue to support the Blue and White Club in the future. Twenty-eight Stoneham High School Year Book PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS OF WELCOME by Milton Rich T is with great pleasure, in behalf of the Class of 1941, that I welcome you to the exercises which bring to a close our high school days. To our parents whose unceasing patience and encouragement have brought us to this graduation, we are deeply appreciative. To the faculty and School Committee we express our gratitude for their part in broadening our know- ledge and developing our powers of reasoning. To the many friends of the graduating class, we extend our heartiest welcome. Today we are faced wth a great challenge as we leave school to pursue our various courses in life. That challenge is the preservation of Democracy. We in school have been inclined to say merely that we live in a democracy and take it for granted. Events of the past year, however, have made us more thoughtful. We recall that Lincoln in his Springfield speach spoke of the United States as " the last great hope of earth; " and that he closed the Gettysburg address with the words " Shall not perish from the earth. " He did not say " from this soil. " That feeling is still deep in the American heart. A popular journalist has expressed the American concept of democracy as one " based on the belief in the sanctity of the human personality, on the immense value of every individual, and the right of every individual to make out of himself the very best human being that he can. " In our different fields a year from today we will do well to remember this concept of American democracy. Tomorrow, we shall prove our worth in the world; today, we share our pleasures with you as we welcome you, our parents and friends, to these graduation exercises.

Douglass URELY no class has ever graduated at a more critical time in the history of the world than this class of 1941. Today, the people, the community, and the country are faced with, not mere emergen- cies, but rather emergencies that demand a definite acceptance ot respon- sibility by the citizens of America — her youth in particular. Too many of us feel, perhaps, that to accept these responsibilities to our land and our way of life is useless. Useless, because of an impression — even though false, fortunately — that the forces of evil are tearing down the foun- dations of democracy, its institutions and its varied opportunities. Useless, because it would be easier to stand aside and let things take their own course. But moreso, useless, because such people lack faith in the future. One may ask, " But how can we accept these responsibilities and how can we see them through? " The answer to such a question may readily be found in our own souls if we Put search for it. These responsibilities can be accepted and these same responsibilities can be carried through if we all have a strong, undying and unyielding faith in the future: a trustful faith that those men who have de- voted their work, their time, and even their very lives to the cause ot democracy shall not have struggled in vain. But faith is of little value if it is not sufficiently substantiated. And to tind that needed verification for faith in the future, we have only to turn to the time-worn pages of history. The history of democracy as contrasted wirn that of destruction and totaletarianism. All through the ages it has been strongly born out that the forces of right have overcome the destructive ideals of evil. Genghis Kahn, Atilla, Alexander the Great, Caesar, Napoleon, and hosts of others who sought to rule rhe world and enslave its people have passed on. And their evil thoughts and dreadful ideals have wasted away just as surely as their bodies have decayed into the dust. The teachings of Christ, the struggles of the pilgrim forefathers; the ideals of Washington, the trust of Lincoln; and the victory of science and tne arts, on the other hand, have withstood the test of time, as compared with the ideals of those whose minds were so contorted that they could realize nothing but destruction and slavery to further their own cause. Some none-too-thoughtful persons seek to divert the faith of youth in its own future by stating that anyone graduating from school in this era is too strongly handicapped at the very outset to ever succeed. Unfortunately, this is a policy that is too wide-spread, since time, again, has proven such a statement to be utterly false. If these self-styled prophets were preaching fact, then the yellowed pages of history would read very much different from what they do. Beethoven would never possibly have become a great musician if these prophets spoke the truth; for Beethoven was eccentric and deaf at the very height of his career. Pope, if he had listened to such trite Stoneham High School Year Book Thirty-one Faith In The Future — (Continued) talk and falsehoods, would have died unknown to the world; he was a hunch- back. Byron could never have succeeded with a club foot. And, to modern- ize the facts, the late George Gershwin could never have become one of America ' s greatest composers because of the tumor on his brain. No handicap can thwart success no matter how great that handicap may be. On the contrary, it is the lack of faith in overcoming that handicap that tends to blur the future. Perhaps Marcus Aurelius presented the greatest argu- ment when his Stoic philosophy prompted him to say: " If anything external vexes you, take notice that it is not the thing which disturbs you, but your notion about it, which notion you may dismiss at once if you please. " We live in a world that has literally gone mad with jealousy and power. The youth of the world — and particularly the youth of these United States — are taced with tremendous odds. Odds that will seek to halt the march of freedom and the ideals of democracy. But with faith in the future, these odds will be overcome just as the responsibilities will be carried out. We have been so disillusioned by stark realistic tragedies enveloping us that some of us forget, at times, our duty in such a world. Let us pause and refresh our minds. Fortunately, we are far enough away from the turmoil across the seas to pause at times and weigh all of the given evidence. However, under the strain of geared up industry and the anxiety of national defense, we all get excited and bewildered. The youth — the American youth, especially — of today, nevertheless, must, above all, think clearly and thoroughly before making even the slightest move. We must have faith, yes, but that faith must at the same time be backed by clear, cool, undisturbed thinking. If we are to have any faith whatever in the future, that fait h — since it is faith in democracy and not in totalitarianism — must be supported by sturdy and unyielding foundations. In that way, our trust and confidence will be strong enough to overcome all odds, since the firmer the foundation, the firmer the faith. , No matter how dark the future may seem today, war and chaos cannot and will not endure; and there will come a day when peace and reconstruction will boldly face the youth of America. But if we have, as Lincoln put it, . faith that right makes might; and in that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand it, " we will succeed. America today is truly " the last best hope on earth. " Within its boundaries lie the hopes of the freedom-loving people of the world; and on the shoulders of its youth lies the responsibility to keep it so. If any one of us fails to keep faith in the future — his own future, the country ' s future, the world ' s future — he has fallen and failed all that is right and democratic. When the people fail to have faith in an ideal, a goal, or even a dream, that ideal, that goal, and that dream will most certainly never be realized. Therefore, in the light of all this. In the light of all the teachings of history and religion; in the light of our responsibilities to ourselves, our country, and even our responsibilities to the entire world; the greatest duty America demands of its youth — the graduating class of 1941 among them — is to have faith in the future. A faith backed by fact and firm foundations. Faith in America! Thirty-two Stoneham High School Year Book Glass Gilsiorif by Helen Candage Good evening, classmates. It was indeed a surprise when Don Douglass breezed into my office one busy morning in May. How good it was to see him! He hadn ' t changed much, ex- cept that he had grown a little taller. What was uppermost in his mind was not his most recent musical success, which his friends had been following with such interest, but rather a reunion for the tenth anniversary of our gradua- tion. He had dropped in to see Ken Hancock at Sounder ' s Music Hall and Paul Ryan who was entertaining at Scavuzz ' s Salad Bowl and find- ing there were more of his classmates around Boston than he had believed possible, he began plans for this meeting tonight. I am sure you are all as delighted as I am for Don ' s inspiration in getting us together. He suggested that my special part in the evening ' s festivities would be to help recall the highlights of our four years in high school. On a rainy Sunday afternoon from old " Authentics, " memory books, and newspaper clippings I pieced together a part of our history. Doubtless other events will come to your minds as I go over these. Is it possible we were ever thirteen? Yet didn ' t we feel grown up? The Freshmen social was the most important event in our lives. Will you ever forget it, I don ' t know which were more scared — the boys or the girls. I never saw a more bashful group in all my life. Can you see the gym as I do? The charming little debs were all lined up on one side and the young men of tomorrow were all on the other side. But what a mad scramble there was when the call for refreshments was given. We did study, too. At least we thought we did In the dim future we could see diplomas and the faculty was starting us on our guest for them. Like Caesar before us ' ' we came and saw ' and we ' re still trying to conquer. How eager we were to convenience ourselves and everyone else that we were grown up. We attended upper class functions — yet remained as inconspicious as possible. And after a summer ' s vacation, we were Sophomores. Now we could engage in senior high activities. We were looked upon as a promising young group. Some of us joined the Dramatic Club and showed budding historic ability. Although we had no dance of our own that year we dressed ourselves up and hopefully attended the various other functions. In the spring, Miss King conducted one of her successful A. A. Shows in the gym. Since ' ' many are called but few chosen, " and all our talent wasn ' t yet discovered, we were represen- ted by only two dancing girls. The year had quickly sped by and we were now to be upper classmen. With eagerness we waited for the Seniors to vacate so that we could move up a peg. Didn ' t we appreciate the recognition that we received as Juniors? Many of our boys were becoming " regulars " on the athletic teams. Miss King put on another A. A. Show which was very appropriately called " New Town Hall Tonight " since it was our first school affair in the new building. The coach, now more aware of the talent in our class, selected a num- ber for important roles. Do you remember Ruth McCall as Heliotrope, Don Blinn as the chef, and Jean Gillespie as Ruby Wheeler? Also some of us sang in the Glee Club and some played in the orchestra. When the Dramatic Club presented " What a Life, " our own " Girlie " Hurley was one of the stars. We were really getting into the swing of things. What a gala time we had at the Junior-Senior prom that was held in the State Armory. The committee worked for days on decorations, making the hall attractive in- deed. Every girl wanted one of the brightly Stoneham High School Year Book Thirty-three Class History (Continued) colored balloons for a souvenir. I still have mine. We were growing up; our Junior year was about at an end. At last we were to play a part in the Senior Class graduation. Do you recall our lovely Dorothy Creenquist and our dignified Bill Bridgman as marshals; and " Girlie " Hurley and Milt Rich, two more of our most popular classmates, as head ushers? After many arduous rehearsals the day finally arrived when the month of graduating class of 1941 fell from their shoulders upon the shoulders of the class of 1941. It was so hard to realize that at last we were Seniors. Weren ' t we busy as Seniors? In athletics our football team, led by Tommy Burr and Milt Rich, played in the game at the dedication of the new Recreation Park. We had an unfort- unate football season with illness and injuries. The team had many bad breaks, the worst one being the breaking of Captain Rich ' s col- larbone. Even the weatherman was against us; he sent a blizzard just before the Thanksgiving Day game. But the players who were not to be discouraged, along with Mr. Miller and " Doc " , too, of course, worked until late the night before shoveling the snow from the field so as not to disappoint the fans. That ' s what you call real school spirit! Sitting on snowbanks and ice- covered bleachers the spectators proved by their enthusiastic cheers that they still had faith in the boys. What a boost it was for the soccer boys to receive leters that year for the first time. Led by Captain Bob Day, the team had one of the most successful seasons on record Soon Senior Class elections were held. After the soap boxes had been carefully tucked away we found that, following in the footsteps of his brother who had led his class for two years, Milt Rich had been re-elected president of our class. Congratulations were in order. In the fall, Miss King presented her last A. A. Show. We regretted it was her last and I ' m not so sure that she didn ' t. Many of our Class- mates contributed to the success of the show. With the help of the other classes again we made history that year by reviving the winter carnival. " Doc " organized his Blue and White Club and got things under way. We had a royal ball featuring the coronation of our car- nival king and queen, Dick Arnold and Allison Moore. Our hockey team, captained by goalie Don Blinn, had a fair season, as did our basketball team led by Bill Bridgman. In the opening we had as Co-Captain of our baseball team Ed Richardson, a Junior, and Tommy Burr of our class. Within a short while Mr. Davis began to count the days left and post the number daily. Graduation began to seem more real. We were rightly proud when Senior honors were an- nounced Lillian Reid, Charlotte Brundage and Robert Moody were awarded MacDonald Medals for their excellence in scholarship, character and leadership, and some poor un- fortunate was named Class Historian. Weren ' t we proud of the Dramatic Club ' s presentation of " Smilin ' Through " with Ann Cook and Jean Gillespie starring for our class? With festivities and work, our year rapidly flew by. Gayly yet somewhat sadly, the four happiest years of our lives were being brought to a close. Can you ever forget our Senior banquet and then the long-waited graduation? And now after ten years we ' re back again renewing friendships and cherishing memories, memories which are to be dealt upon until, perhaps, we meet again.

Green, Class Statistician Thirty-six Stoneham High School Year Book CLASS PROPHECY Thomas Smith In the year 1953 I decided to visit my old home town. I was amazed to find I could get booking by plane right to Stoneham, for the town fathers, George Geragosian, Sim Foley, and Mickey McDonough, had built a great municipal airport. Woman can do most anything yet I was as- tounded to find Miss Maybelle Miester as pilot of this great transport plane. When we passed over the rocky summit of Bear Hill I became air sick and I called for the stewardess. When she came I thought I was delirious but it was Girlie Hurley. Miss Hurley sympathetically administered Smith ' s Sure Shot Se rum to cure air sickness. Smith ' s Sure Shot Serum was made at the Smith Pharmaceutical Laboratories. When the plane gently landed I looked around for a Taxi. A cab owned by the Black and Blue Cab Co. pulled up driven by Bob Day, faithful servant of the Stoneham public. I asked the driver to take me to the best restaur- ant. He stopped before a well lit store. Scavuzzo ' s Salad Bowl was the name of this place managed by the great connoisseur of fine foods, Miss Margaret Scavuzzo. The timid waiter, Dave Ruggles, came to take my order. As I was eating my delicious meal I heard Scavuzzo ' s first violinist, Owl Ryan busily scrap- ing the gut. Behind this din I heard the strains of the rest of the orchestra coming in pitifully late as usual Tip " What do you say " Rudd was the drummer, Dick Lent playing the French Horn, George Tashjian playing the trumpet, and Bob Stetson was mercilessly sliding the trombone. I was suddenly slapped on the back and when I recovered it was " Tinker " Crocetti, the head waiter. " Tinker " showed me out when I had finished and I saw Al Trites, Bill King, Fred Lawson, Vincent Milano, Chet O ' Niell, and Lloyd Pattie, who all held the enviable position of assistant head waiters. George Doyle and Dick Truesdale had the high stations of second assistant head waiters. When I reached the door Mr. Robert McCormack, millionaire playboy owner of the Bear Hill Golf Club came over to see me. He asked me if I would like to see the rehearsal of a show. Delighted, I went with him to his car and was amazed to see him clamber into an old 1941 blue Plymouth convertible coupe. I realized then that Scotch blood still ran strong in his veins. We drew up before the Music Hall, owned and operated by Howie Saunders. As I walked down the aisle I saw Salty Hancock busily dusting the chairs for the evening performance. That famous composer and star maker, Don Douglass, was lounging in the front row with a 35c cigar in his mouth, shouting orders at Milt Rich, the dance director. Milt was beat- ing out time for the chorus and yelling, 1 -2-3- kick! 1 -2-3-kick! The name of this opera was " Sueze Susie " , the modern version of that old hit, " Panama Hattie " , starring Gloria Jean Gillespie, who was busily rehearsing the hit tune of the show, " A little Bit North of West East India " , in her traditional southern style. Miss Gillespie, the Great Douglass ' s latest find, had just returned from a successful European tour. Stoneham High School Year Book Thirty-seven CLASS PROPHECY — (Continued) Our little star looked ravishing in one of the new creations dreamed up by the celebrated designer, Mme. Langille Kendall. Under the able guidance of Milt the chorus was the best in the country. The beautiful show girls were Pat Bruce, Kay Culleton, Ann Cook, Rachel Traedge, and Priscilla Thompson. That famous Hollywood comedy trio, Orsillo, Litchfield, and Cinivin, were rehearsing their adagio act which consisted of Fuzzy throwing Litchie up, and Ozzie catching her sometimes. Suddenly there was a terrific clamor outside and the stage hands, Robert Sweet, Howard Cutter, Eddie Cloor, Roscoe Priestly, and Red Landers were attempting to stop six determined little men who said they just had to see the stage director. After listening to the six men, Mr. Richard Lynn announced that the men ' s costumes would be made at a great saving by the Six Little Tailors; Vance Woodworth, Tommy Burr, Robert Houghton, Norton Sanchez, Chuck Duff, and Eddie Landers. With my head bursting, I left to get a room for the night. Bob McCormack again obliged and I was tossed around three more blocks in his car when he swung into a gas station. But lo! There was Dot Chynoweth hanging out clothes in the back yard and Jark MrCrath came to the car. Checking the water and oil was Jack ' s able assistant, Storey Winchester. We drove out in a whirl of smoke and drew up before an imposing structure which bore the name, Bridgman Hotel. Upon entering, I was impressed by the artis- tic paintings on the walls. Inquiring about them I was told Mrs. Bridgman, the former Miss Charlotte Brundage, was the master artist. , When I went to sign the register, genial Dick Arnold was behind the desk. After signing the register I glanced up the page and such prominent names as Andy Tuney, Police Com- missioner; Erma Rinaldi; socialite; Harry Mellet, inventor of Mellots Motorless Mowers, Angelo Angelo, internationally known wrestler; Robert Moody, movie magnate; Dot Stowell, Sally Badamo, Louise Frenzo, and Barbara Batchelher, managers of Stoneham ' s foremost employment bureau. Having secured a room from Dick, I took the elevator which was run by Ethel Herbert. I spent a comfortable night, until I was rudely awakened at ten o ' clock the next morning by a loud banging on my door. Dressing rapidly, I hurried to the door. Five chambermaids with mops, dustclothes, and pails, confronted me. The efficient maids were Genevieve Kenney, Margaret Masi, Helen Murray, Wilma Dodge, and Vera Brown. After breakfast I called up the Burditt Bus Company to arrange for a sightseeing tour. I had no sooner hung up the receiver when there was a loud honking outside Rushing down the steps I saw a huge bus with the slogan on its sine " See Stoneham in five minutes " . Burdy Burditt, the racing champion was in the driver ' s seat. " Get in! " he shouted I had just barely sat down when we went whizzing through the sub- urbs and into the country. As we continued on " Burdy " shouted " On your right is Donahoe ' s Dairy Farm. As we zoomed past I caught a quick glimpse of Charlie ' s two assistants, Roger Smith and Robert Bowser being chased by a group of pretty milkmaids, namely, Ruby Miester, Jane Chambers, Margaret Peterson, Barbara Gal- lagher, and Francis Dyson. When we passed the driveway, I saw " Pop " Stoney climbing into the company ' s new milk trhck. We swung back to the city and " Burdy " Thirty-eight Stoneham High School Year Book CLASS PROPHECY — (Continued) stopped before a group of ivy covered buildings. Al told me that the school on the right hand side of the street was the Reid ' s School for Young Girls. Miss Lillian Reid was the dean and she had kept her school-day chums with her for Allison Moore was the dietitian; Miss Eleanor Litchfield as head stenographer, Carol Manser, Anna Micallizzi and Helen Meehan were secretaries to Miss Reid. Miss Candage had her own office as Director of Admissions. The list of the faculty members was made up of the following prominent names: Ruth Parker, Biologist; Mary McDermott, head of the History Department; Ruth Bradely, Social Director; Loretta Conley, head of the Science Dept; and Jean Switzer, Economics Instructor; Elizabeth Dewhurst, Francis Evans, Ruth Leete, Helen Green, Rosiland McDonald and Eleanor Higgins, were in charge of the Business Department; while Barbara Colburn, Helen Trueman, Susan Mustone, Madeline Mingella, were the heads of Culture Training. Eleanor Samsel and Ruth McCall were Dancing Instructors. I went across the street to see Professor Cullinane ' s Establishment for Young Men. I saw the professor busily dictating to the Misses Evelyn MacKenzie, Virginia Mahakian, and Louise Savelo. The more prominent members of the faculty were Donald McRae, Director of Sciences, and Bill Reynolds, famed Sports Coach. When we reached the airport, the plane was just about to leave and " Burdy” wished me goodby for all of Stoneham as I climbed aboard. The motors roared and I sped to rest and quietness.
