Spring Sowing As our days in school are ending Wistfully we linger here At the crossroads to our future, Wondering what is waiting near. Wistfully, ah yes, for precious Seems each swiftly passing day. Friends are just a little dearer; Parting words so hard to say. Some of us will take the high road ; Some of us will take the low. All of us will make our future By the kind of seeds we sow. May we sow the seeds we’ve gathered Through the golden hours of youth — Seeds of love and seeds of beauty, Seeds of kindness, grace, and truth. All along the pathway flowering May they mark the way we’ve trod, Bringing pleasure and a blessing To our high school and our God.

GRADUATION COMMITTEE Barbara Alves William Hanna Marion MacDonald Donald Monson Norman Peacor Hermione Stoumbelis Themis Stoumbelis Robert Towse George Trueman Ioanna Waite SENIOR HONORS Graduation Address WE FACE THE FUTURE As far back as history has recorded men’s thoughts, each generation has said, “The peak of scientific development has been reached ; man ' s ingenuity has spent itself. " So it was when the automobile sped over rough roads at the alarming speed of fifteen miles per hour; and again when the airplane proved that it could resist the pull of gravity in a Bight from coast to coast. Even more hopeless has been the attitude toward problems growing out of human relation- ships. Newspaper clippings telling of the irresponsibility of youth, of the moral degener- ation of the age, can be read with the same sad shaking of heads today as when they were first printed in an earlier century. How convincingly history has proved the skeptics wrong. Man’s inventiveness is spurred to greater achievement as the needs become im- perative, especially when there is a war to be won. The suffering in total war reaches out over the globe, but so does the sympathy for those whose lives are caught in the maelstrom. We today are likely to see only the dark and unpromising side of our future. Yet with prob- lems of war come unprecedented opportunities. Let us consider several areas in which lie challenges great enough to demand all the courage and idealism we possess. At the outbreak of hostilities diplomatic re- lations between many countries were broken and representatives were called home. All diplomatic relationships must be resumed as progress of the war permits. To safeguard itself each nation may well consider by what principles these re- turning diplomats will be guided. Can there be peace if every nation seeks its own self interest? Can there be peace if diplomats stoop to deceit and shady bargaining? Can there be peace if nations, blind to their own faults, insist that they have found the right way and force that way upon others? Those who represent us in international con- ferences will have it in their power to shape the course of events. Controversial issues will be many ; such as, access to natural resources, national and international defense, trade, air bases, and the control of aggressors. If all sides of these issues are studied with the objective candor of the scientist and with the will to find fair solutions, open conflict can be held in check. Perhaps no one of vour class will serve as a foreign ambassador, but we will all be among the citizens for whom they will speak and we can influence the thinking of our time. We must send to the conference tables men of intelligence, in- tegrity, and tolerance. They must be students of the historv and culture of those nations whose problems are common with ours. They must see beyond the present. More than half the world today is hungry; just how hungry, we in American cannot appre- ciate. These people should be fed and quickly. As one of the leading food producing countries, we can provide immediate and temporary relief. We can help them to help themselves by pro- viding them with modern implements and by teaching improved methods of farming. As Doctor Carver taught the people of his race to make a living from the peanut, so others devoted to research can discover secrets for wresting from the soil livelihoods for crowded nations. Of those who fear that our generosity is too costly we ask if it is not less costly than further wars growing from seeds of hatred in the souls of hungry people who feel themselves forgotten. The devastating accuracy of our air forces and the thoroughness of the destruction by armies have actually wiped out many towns and cities. These must be rebuilt and herein lies another opportunity to restore hope in tired people. We may provide materials, tools, and even trained men. We may expect to be paid so long as our price be fair; exploitation of people who have suffered so terribly could only result in smolder- ing hatred to threaten us later. More than the landscape has been changed. The Dutch friend of Edgar Mower, correspond- ent for the Globe has said, “Hitler has revolu- tionized this continent from the bottom, x ' enewed its outlook, confounded its traditions, scrambled its peoples.” Europe cannot become again what it was, and there are many evidences that it does not want to. In many men is growing a de- termination to live peaceably with their neigh- bors. Hopeful indeed are all attempts at inter- national cooperation : the food conference of forty- three nations, the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, the Inter- national Commission on Education and the plans of the International Labor Organization. Know- ing that isolation can no longer protect any nation from the spreading infection of discontent, ignorance, and actual want, leaders in these movements seek the best judgment of many countries in the solving of common problems. It is the less hopeful side, however, that most challenges our ingenuity. A generation in coun- tries in Europe have learned to cheat and to steal, and even to kill in order that they may exist. While many have learned to hate Facism, others have been steeped in its doctrines. How can the thinking of this generation be changed ? It is not likely that great numbers of foreigners and foreign ideas will be enthusiastically welcomed Graduation Address in these countries because each nation is proud of its heritage and deserves to perpetuate its own culture. Nevertheless, we do have an oppor- tunity in welcoming to our colleges and universi- ties, teaches and other leaders who may study here and take back to their homelands whatever of our philosophies and practices will be of value to them. We can help restore school build- ings, equip them with text books, laboratory apparatus and machines. In all our building let our foundations be tolerance and good will. Thus far we have considered opportunities in areas that may seem vague and distant. Let us now be more personal. Americans as well as Europeans have been scrambled. Our soldiers quartered in India, North Africa, and China are seeing, most of them for the first time, life and cultures very foreign to their own. For the most part this life is extremely simple; too often it is one of abject poverty. Pearl Ruck warns against the superficial understanding which these soldiers will glean from their limited contacts with peoples of these lands. Unable to understand the language, and being far removed from their customs, our boys may discourage efforts to- ward cooperation because they have judged people on too little evidence. We who read their letters and hear their first hand accounts will do well to bear in mind that a deeper and broader knowledge is needed than can be gained through a few months or even a year by soldiers stationed there. In our country boys from the East hive seen the rugged beauty of our western mountains, the great variety of western plains. Boys from the North have sensed the lasting bitterness among some southerners whose grandparents defended a lost cause in the Civil War. Boys throughout the nation have had their sympathies or re- pulsions deepened bv contact with our soldiers of various creeds, races, and colors. Most of these boys recognize in our democracy problems which press for solution. “There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the Hood, leads on to fortune.” Of one thing we can be cer- tain — the status quo can never be maintained. It is for us to determine whether we will ride the tide or whether we will, in an attempt to re- sist it, be dashed on the shore. It is for us to determine whether our faith in democracy is sufficiently secure to extend its r ' ghts and privileges. What is our answer to the colored soldiers who ask, “Shall we enjoy in the future the democracy for which we are fighting?” In this world-wide struggle of the common man for a leveling off of economic privilege; can we in America save the best in our economic tradition and yet not glorify its faults? The impact of war upon our educational system has been heavy. Great concern has rightly been expressed over the accelerated programs stripped of all but the bare essentials and heavily weigfited by science and mathematics to meet war demands. Yet this sudden change will force us to restud) ' our entire system; from this study should come valuable changes. The war on the other hand offers great edu- cational advantages through the training pro- grams in the armed services. Many boys have entered college who would never in normal times have been encouraged to continue their studies. With the immediate goal of ratings in view they have learned how to study effectively and have come to appreciate that qualities of industry are necessary for personal advancement. After the war there is a probability that the government will pay the expenses of young men and women who wish to continue their college careers. Pro- viding educational opportunities for those who really want them would be further evidence of the democratic process. Because of wartime necessity the dignity of labor is again being recognized. As debutantes and people trained for professions work as weld- ers and machine operators in war plants, the stigma sometimes »elt toward manual labor is re- moved. Through the victory gardening cam- paign many people are once more getting close to the soil and farming is looked upon as an im- portant and enjoyable occupation. Because of a shortage of domestic help many housewives are finding, in the necessity of doing their own housework, a certain pleasure that accompanies honest work. New scientific developments accelerated by war offer to many employment in the fields of plastics, electronics, aeronautics and synthetics. " Scientists estimate that more than 200,000 products entirely new to man have come from the chemical laboratories in this one gener- ation ...” Production of these products on a large scale will absorb thousands of men and pro- vide new comforts for living. In speaking of the youth of the last war Josiah Royce, professor of philosophy at Harvard, said, “You have the honor of belonging to a gener- ation whose lips are touched with fire . . . “When you are old . . . however memory brings back this moment to your minds, let it be able to say : . . . this world in its crisis called for volunteers, for men of faith in life, of patience in service, of charity and of insight. 1 responded to the call however I could . . . 1 studied, I loved, I labored, unsparingly and hope- fully, to be worthy of my generation. " RORERT TOWSE Class History AN OPEN LETTER At this reunion on the tenth anniversary of our graduation, Connie Shaw suggested that I read a letter 1 wrote to her in 1950, since it re- calls many of the highlights of our four years in high school. You probably will recall many more as 1 read the letter. 556 East Fortieth Street New York City, New York June 15, 1950 Dear Connie : Look at the date on this letter ! Do you real- ize that six years ago tonight we graduated? It dawned on me as I was glancing over one of my old diaries. A conglomeration of hilarious and memorable events came back to me in a whirl. Remember the May Dance when you were crowned queen and Frank Martin king? Weren’t those dances a scream ? Our efforts to appear grown up only succeeded in making us seem more silly. It seems to me Barbara Magrath was presi- dent and Joanna Waite vice-president when we were freshmen. And wasn’t Hermione Stoum- belis secretary? Apparently there was a short- age of men even then. The Dramatic Club put on “Smilin’ Through,” remember? It was lovely. In the fall, Miss King presented her last A. A. Show, “The Frolics of 1940.” Into this production she put the same zest and spirit she had put into her others. Weren’t Ruth Grant, June Karlson, and Buddy Landers in it? While we were freshmen, the Blue and " White Club was organized and we had our first winter carnival. Everything was complete from the sports program to the gala carnival ball. Speaking of sports, remember the blizzard just before the Thanksgiving Day game ? The players, along with Bill Miller and “Doc”, shoveled until late that night to clear the field. Their real school spirit was rewarded by the heartv cheers of the spectators who watched the game from snow- banks and icy bleachers. Didn’t it seem great as sophomores to be able to enter into the senior high activities? In sports our classmates took part in many of the victories we reaped. Wasn’t the Thanksgiving Day game wonderful? Who could forget that one touch- down making the score 6 to 0, and we the under- dog team, too! Well, it shows what adrenaline can do. How did you like the snake dance in the square? It was quite the thing, wasn’t it? Some of our talented football and hockey play- ers also began to blossom as sophomores. “Captain Applejack” was produced that year by the Dramatic Club with our own Joyce Hale in one of the leads as Poppy Faire. Boy! Weren’t those young pirates, Johnny Clemens and Ray Sorenson, dashing? There were two other important events on the calendar for our sophomore year, the winter carnival with its varied sports program climaxed by the crowning of the king and queen at the ball, and the girls ' basketball tournament. Although the juniors beat us 17 to 14, we felt proud that we had come closer than any other sophomores to winning the game. You should have had geometry with us that year. When we took our tests after schcol, Mr. Davis’ room sounded more like the cafeteria. The crunch — crunch — crunch — of potato chips could be heard much more often than the scratching of pencils. 1 wonder why? Did you hear about the fund we started for our yawn- ing nightbirds? In the A. A. Show “41 Fiesta” the football squad should really have taken a bow. They executed their ballet number with the most dainty grace. Our orchestra came into the limelight that year for sure. Under Mr. Tapley’s direction they made an almost professional presentation at the Town Hall. Several of the members, Bill Clemens especially, contributed to its success. It was so late in the spring when our class caught up with itself and elected its officers that it was decided to let them serve the next year, too. Bill Clemens, Ralph Truesdale, Jean Andrews, Donald Murphy, and Grace Chase made up the slate. Our junior year was an eventful one, wasn’t it? The A. A. fall show and dance, called the “Victory Promenade,” proved to be another good time, which set the year off to a good stall We were rightfully proud of the football team on which many of our class played. We won three games, tied two, and lost two. The most outstanding game to me was our defeat by Win- chester. Yes, it was a defeat; but it was a victory, too! Losing in the last fifteen seconds, when we had outplayed them all through the game, was heartbreaking. Hiking over in a body we were confident of our team ; coming back we were even more so. We knew they had what it takes, and, from what the newspapers said, others thought so, too. Don’t you think that it was the most memorable event in our history? Do I need to tell you, Connie, how victorious we juniors were in the girls’ basketball tourna- ment? Our snappy entrance stole the show for us from the beginning, didn’t it? My! How those scores climbed whenever Pat Morrell or Twinkle MacLennan supported by fine team work, got the ball. History Class “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” won much acclaim for the Dramatic Club. Bob Towse and many others in our class are to be congratulated on their parts in making it such a success. Do you remember “Conky” in the coat-room? It was disappointing not to have had a carnival ball to complete the big sports program in our junior year, but the B. C. Freshmen hockey game made up for it. In high spirits after clearing the rink of the snow that covered everything, we walloped them, winning 7 to 0. Besides, we were third in the league that year, winning six out of ten games. Some record, I’d say! As juniors, if we had voted on the subject of the year, I’m sure chemistry would have been near the top. Its influence was certainly widely spread at times. I quess Grace Chase won’t for- get in a hurry how to sweep a floor. You must recall our poised ushers, and Marilyn Crafts and Ralph Truesdale as marshals at the graduation of the class of 1943. I can clearly remember what a jolt it gave me when I realized that we became seniors with their graduation. It didn’t seem quite right not to have a class older than ourselves in the fall of 1943. Now we were to lead the school activities as well as to participate in them. In football the most note- worthy games were those with Lexington, Howe High, and Somerville Trade. While our sc ; res weren’t always tops throughout the season, our spirit was. Bill Lawson, Ernie Mingheila, and the Co-Captains, John Rotundi and Ernest Angelo, contributed their all to the games, didn t they? And the Stoneham cheerleaders outshone all others that year. Didn’t you and the others ever tire of yelling “Yes, Bob, Moriera, Yea, Yea, Bob Moriera?” Our senior class officers were elected early in the fall and when the returns had been made, Ralph Truesdale, Bob Donahoe, Marilyn Crafts, Donald Monson, and Lloyd Martin had come out on top. How grieved we were to hear one morning of the sudden death of Mr. Watson. We knew we had lost a kind friend upon whom we had come to depend. Soon afterwards we attended a memorial service for him, and as further recog- nition of his efforts the Parent-Teacher Asso- ciation renamed their scholarship the Howard W. Watson Memorial Scholarship. It was good to be able to turn to Mr. Nadeau at such a time and to know later that he would carry on as our principal. How I wish I had seen either the Medford or Melrose hockey games ! Our blue and white •certainly upset the league that season. Melrose never has got over that I to 0 victory, and as for Medford — what a lively beehive of angry players we stirred up when we tied them ! W’hat a carnival we had in “44” ! With the Home Front and our Blue and White Club work- ing together, it had to be a success. The hockey game, a varied sports program, and of course, the ball, with the crowning of our ever popular Marilyn Crafts and Ralph Truesdale were the highlights. That was some weekend, wasn’t it? Do 1 need to ask you if you remember our basketball team in our senior year? I can re- member the Melrose game very- clearly still. How angry they were that night was evident when we played them the next time. Our team put up a real fight, cheered on by our many Stoneham rooters who had hiked over to Melrose. Didn’t Martin, Murphy, MacLennan, Truesdale, and Angelo give our opponents a headache? Again we came out victorious from the girls’ basketball tournament. With such a swell team, we couldn’t help winning. I can remember Chase, MacLennan, Morrell, Crafts, Hawes, the Stoum- belis sisters, and you. In field hockey, too, the girls were a credit to the class, winning seven out of eight games. As seniors we beat Reading and tied Melrose. One more victory over Mel- rose that year and we would have had a war on our hands. The Dramatic Club didn’t get started until late that year, remember? They made a good start the next year, though, thanks to the ground work done by the 1944 members. In April the class honors were announced. It wasn’t surprising when Hermie and Themie Stoumbelis and Russell Parker were awarded tire MacDonald medals, for we knew all along of their contribution to our class. We were happy, too, that Bob Towse was to give the class address. My, what a sad bunch left the assembly hall, for we knew that in a short while we would graduate. How long we waited for our prom and ban quet, wishing for them to come, yet realizing that they would end all too soon. I wpnder if we didn ' t have lumps in our throats. How we laughed at those cute pictures Jean Rollins drew for the class history. Then it was June 15, 194d — the night of nights. Receiving our diplomas seemed to me like getting passports to our destinies. How bright those destinies looked to us ! I wonder if now many have realized theirs. This has been a long letter hasn’t it, Connie? Yet it seems so brief for reviewing four happy years in high school. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a class reunion? Maybe we will, who knows?

We may congratulate our girls this year for a most successful field hockey season and for the grand spirit displayed when they met Reading and Melrose. The team outplayed Reading 2-0 and tied their old rival Melrose 2-2. The games were played hard and fast with skill acquired from hours of practice under the direction of Mrs. Lawson, the coach. Basketball rates first place with the girls of Stoneham High School. They love it despite their shrieks, squabbles, and bruises. They enjoy the companion- ship of members of various teams and classes at the inter-mural practice periods and games. The tournament this year proved as exciting as ever; for the teams were evenly matched and all set for victory. Three cheers to the victors, the seniors ; and cheers to the juniors and sophomores for their sportsmanship. Here’s wishing next year’s squad a most successful seas on. The football season wouldn’t have been complete without the steady en- couragement and friendliness of our cheerleaders. We think they made a good showing, and we are proud of their ability and school spirit. The success of the Blue and White Club, under the capable direction of “Doc” Gordon, can be attributed to the hearty response of its many members who pulled together to put over the Winter Carnival, with the help of the Home Front. The fancy skating was a great treat, and the Medford-Stoneham hockey game was a special feature. The hike to the basketball game in Melrose was thoroughly enjoyed. The climax of the weekend was the Carnival Ball with the coronation of the King and Queen of Winter. The club is proud of being able to continue the awarding of two scholarships this year. In addition, a third scholarship has been established to be awarded to a son or daughter of a World War II service man or woman at the first graduation following the ending of the war.

With but four lettermen back from the pre- vious season and all of them playing in the back- field, “Doc” Gordon, ably assisted by Mr. Higgins, put together a team which came through the season with four defeats and three victories. The forward wall of the team, which wjas undoubtedly one of the lightest in the history of the school, proved that ability can overcome lack of weight. The team was victorious over Lexington, Howe, and Somerville Trade. This year the team lost to both of its arch rivals, Winchester and Reading, but the undying spirit of the team made these great games. Hockey First Row : J. Doherty, W. Lawson, F. Flynn, A. Finnegan, D. Bicknell, W. Thomas, D. Whiston. Second Row : A. Meegan, J. Marrone, N. Houghton, B. Clark, D. Trenholm, R. Wright, R. Livingston, Mr. Gordon, Mr. Davis. With no captain nor lettermen returning this year, “Doc” Gordon’s hockey team came through the season with three victories, six losses, and one tie. The lack of experience was the main factor for the losses, but the boys had plenty of fight and spirit, as was shown in the Medford and Melrose games. They tied Medford 1-1 and beat Melrose, 1-0. During the season captains were chosen : Co-Captains Bob Murphy and Art Finnegan. Luck seemed to be against the boys as indicated by the close scores: Newton 1-0; Ringe Tech, 4-3; and Belmont, 4-3. On the All- Scholastic Team, Stoneham placed three players: Bicknell, Murphy and WTiston. Both Murphy and Bicknell scored for the G. B. I., and Whis- ton played a great game in the nets. Next year should be a good year. We shall see. Basketball First Row: J. Winton, W. Parsons, L. Dill, P. Ming- hella, R. Truesdale, F. Martin, E. Angelo. Second Row : W. Blackwell, A. Donaghey, M. Wash- burn, G. Trueman, Mr. Davis, Mr. Buono, J. Testa, G. Proodian, R. Seward. This year the Stoneham basketball team had one of its most successful seasons in seven years. This was only the second season for Coach Buono, and his team ended third in the Middlesex League. The team, led by Co-Captains Ralph Truesdale and Pat Minghella, and helped by Dick Mercer, Don Murphy, Frank Martin, Harry Lynch, Bud Dill, Bill D’Annolfo, Larry Meuse, Wes Parsons, Art Donaghey, and John Winton, went through the season with seven victories and seven losses. This year the team beat its chief rival, Reading, twice, 23-17 and 29-28. Probably the best game of the season was the first game with Melrose. With only seconds to play and the score 27-27, Dick Mercer scored the winning basket to make the score 29-27 in favor of Stone- ham. Baseball First Row: W. Parsons, W. McLaughlin, D. Trenholm, B.

Burns. “ ' This year should be a good year” was the statement made by “Doc” Gordon early in the season. With nine lettermen returning, the battle for position was in full swing. Bob Moreira had little trouble in holding the catching position. In the infield we had Co-Captain Ralph Truesdale at first, Art Donaghey at second. Bud Dill at short, and a battle between John Rolli and Don Whiston for the third base position. In the out- field we had Co-Captain Joe Testa, Harrv Lynch, Bill Thomas, Frank Martin and George Trueman lighting it out. TRAFFIC SQUAD First Row: J. Kettell, Andrews, J. Doyle, R. Dermott, R.

After payment of our just debts and expenses of graduation, we dispose of our estate as follows: I. To all students who have left to serve in the Armed Forces, we leave a wish for success in their new tasks and hope that they will be back with us soon. II. To Mr. Horton, we leave the hope that he will be as happy in his new position as we have been to have him as our vice-principal. III. To all future graduates of Stoneham High School, we leave a collection of Mr. Thibodeau’s poetry to help them receive a well- rounded education. IV. To Mr. Nadeau, we leave our very best wishes for many happy years as principal of Stoneham High School. V. To Miss Marsh, we leave a periscope to help her keep an eye on her books. VI. With deepest sincerity we leave the wish that pupils of Stoneham High School will always remember the high ideals of our beloved principal, Mr. Howard W. Watson. In Testimony Whereof, we hereunto set our hand on seal, and declare this to be our Last Will and Testament, this third day of May in the year of our Lord, one-thousand nine hundred and forty-four. (Signed) MARGARET THOMPSON FRANKLIN MARTIN For the Class of 1944 Signed, published, and declared by the class of 1944 in the presence of us, who at the request of one Mother, hereunto subscribe our names as witnesses thereto, on this, the fifteenth day of June, one thousand, nine hundred and forty- four. Witnesses 1. WILLIAM NADEAU 2. RUTH FINN 3. GERTRUDE M. TOHNSON CLASS PROPHECY FANTASY OF THE FIFTIES No wonder Bob Towse, editor of New York ' s “Newsy, Noisy Gazette,’’ was peeved! To be scooped was bad enough ; to be scooped on the feats of his own classmates, however, was horrible. Alfred Kenworthy and Donald Holden had just startled the scientific world with a novel invention — an amazing black electric light bulb to turn day into night — a gadget which, incidentally, copped for them the Pulitzer Prize for 1955 — and we had to read about it in a rival newspaper. Never again, he stormed would a reporter of his (that’s me, or is it I?) be so hopeless anchored behind the eight-ball. Ordered to get the facts on all the notable Stoneham class of 1944, I sought the aid of Majors Ralph Truesdale and Bob Mac Lennan, home on furlough from the United States Inter- space Air Force based on Mars. With their customary generosity Ralph and Bob put them- selves and their rocket ship (the joint product of the fertile brains of William Beaton and Roscoe Thompson) at my disposal, and we roared into the air with the speed of light (Superman is old stuff now). Two days later 1 submitted the following report to Bob: In an Jmpressive home on Stoneham’s broad and new Main Street, a tribute to the vision of those very select selectmen, Joe Marrone, Jack Masi, and Harry Lister, and ably policed by Chief Harry Poutre and his two genial sergeants, Pat and Ernest Minghella, in their twin-side-car motorcycles, we found Dr. Harold Holyoke, now an eminent physician. Much of his success he attributed to the poise and efficiency of his office nurse, Miss Helen Kettell. Across the street is the shingle of Dr. Arthur Fortini, whose experi- ence in surgery while still a schoolboy has stood him in good stead. Just above in a new and modern block is the Artful Advertising Company owned and operated by Don Murphy and Grace Chase, with Florence Pezzole, Frances Koprek, and Helen Hawes as their competent secretaries. Frank Martin is there, too. He hopes soon be become a full-fledged office boy. The square, of course, still stands, but some- thing new has been added. The Academy has been air-conditioned by its new owner, Raymond LeMoine. This became a necessity when “Heath Swett” cigars began to gain popularity among its patrons. Nearby is the “Curl ’Em or Scalp ’Em " Beauty Shoppe run by Kay White and her beauteous beauticians, Anna Valente, Marjorie Sprague, Irene Roche, and Jean Pratt. Trans- planting is their speciality. Next door in a dress shop Joanna Waite, Dot Dunnan, and Irene Werre feature a gorgeous display of the latest imported gowns — imported direct from North Reading. Apparently Stoneham has become the enter- tainment center for its less fortunate neighbors. At the Spa, vastly enlarged since the Stoumbelis girls took it over, we found “Mac” Washburn’s internationally famous orchestra playing a special engagement. All the boys are there — “Strings” Thomas, “Blue-Note” Evans, “Boogie- Beat” Peacor, “Squash-Beat” Sorenson, and “Sweet-Note” Parker and his torrid trombone. Muriel Full ford sings with the band — need I say more? Next week the Gandrew Sisters, none other than Marge MacLennan, Connie Shaw, and Marion MacDonald, move into the Spa to con- clude a triumphant nation-wide tour of the night- spots. Across the square is the rival Salad Bowl Cafe operated by Bob Heinlein ; George Wilkins is the head waiter, and Muriel Austin, Eileen Donovan, and Marion Connors are the wait- resses. They all gained their experience waiting in the high school cafeteria. Bill Hanna, Stone- ham’s Sinatra, is a fixture at the mike there, with Sam Valente’s band for dancing. In a new and spacious theater erected on the site of the old one Charlie Bradshaw is present- ing Norman Chaput’s musical epic entitled “Lay that Piano Down,” a steal from that old favorite “just Let Everything Go.” John McCarty, Joyce Hale, June Karlson, and Betty “Queenie” Bockus, who give full credit for their rise to stardom to their early dramatic experience in Stoneham High School, play the leads. A chorus of Stoneham stunners including Barbara Mc- Grath, Betty Hanlon, Barbara Crosby, Jean Andrews, and Mary Kinsley helps to pack them in. Lovely Mary Fama handles the publicity. The faculty of Stoneham High School, now an inpressive structure with a six-acre campus, has been honored by the addition of four of our classmates. Marion Jenkins, Paula Hunt, and Shirley Horan continue to share their knowledge CLASS PROPHECY with those less fortunate. Johnnie Rotondo, coach of football, who admits to somewhat envious of Babe Angelo’s feats in the Chicago Bears backfield, has compiled an amazing record of thirty-three successive victories. In the Boston press we located several familiar names. Dynamic A1 Bowe had a gripping ac- count of our own speed demon, Billy Lawson, driving his " Yellow Peril " to a smashing victory at Indianapolis on a set of retreads. On the same page was Chappie Coombs’ interview with Joe Testa, first Red Sox manager to win a world’s championship since Tom Yawkey bought the club. Margaret Thompson is the new Dorothy Dix. Meteorologists George Trueman and Don Monson have raised the science of weather forecasting to a new degree of accuracy. The Stoneham del egation is completed by Fashion Editor Eleanor Tibbetts and Sob .Sisters Jean Rollins and Barbara Alves. Librarian Priscilla Pearson brought us up to date on other notable Stoneham authors. Dot Olson has just finished her new noved “A Tree Grows in Mrs. Finnegan’s Back Yard.” Shirley Manser has written a highly successful biog- raphy of Barbara Shepard, owner of a chain of riding schools, entitled “Pride Goeth Before a Fall. " Audrey and Muriel Stone’s new thriller " The Romance of the Slaughter House, or Seventeen Buckets of Blood” stands high on the best-seller list. Radio, too, is the better for the class of ’44. " Sis " Knight, we discovered, is filling the shoes of Beatrice Kay on the Gay Nineties Revue. From the same studio Don Sargent broadcasts nightly his penetrating analysis of the news, followed by Buddie Landers’ lovely lullabies. Hollywood boasts the presence of handsome, dashing Kenneth MacKenzie and lovely Marilyn Crafts, soon to be co-starred in the picture " Tropical Fever, " or “Boy, It’s Slightly Warm Down Here.” Yes, Marilyn chose a career. Art Finnegan has become the modern Dracula, though his wife, Mrs. Finnegan, insists he’s kind to the children. Talented Ruth Grant and Eileen Hansell are also tabbed for future stardom. John Kenney, John Clemens, and “Shine” Dono- hoe still continue their madcap pranks, but now they get paid for it as the successors to the Marx Brothers. Dick Palmer has become a super-salesman. He admits to having amassed a modest fortune sell- ing lines for paper, points for pins, and eyes for needles. Shirley Smith and Virginia Mellen, two promising executives, are among his best customers. Well, Bob, that’s all there is. I should have known that the class of ’44 was going places, but never fear— I won’t get scooped again. Next time 1 11 be “on the ball,” not behind it. LLOYD MARTIN AD cp3C TRY OUR PATRONS Our Reward as Official Photographer for the Class of 1944 is in knowing that the Stoneham High School has received the finest in Photographic service.

A good secretary is always in demand. Last year, place- ment calls for Fisher girls were greatly in excess of available graduates. • For 41 years New England has recognized the Fisher School as a center for superior secretarial training. At either the fine old residence over- looking the Charles River, which is the Boston School, or in the homelike atmosphere of the Winter Hill School, Fisher courses combine cul- tu’..
