Text from Pages 1 - 64 of the 1945 volume:
For twenty-six years, a cheerful little person con- tributed a great deal to the pleasant atmosphere of Stoneham High School. Thomas Flynn, a ca- pable custodian during those years, was a friend of all the teachers and students for whom he would always have a warm smile, a word of greeting and often a kindly bit of philosophy. His death on April 26, 1945, rvas deeply mourned by his many school friends, students, graduates and teachers, who remember fondly his genial ways. SlOilTII lIl ■■■€»■■ SCHOOL Stoneliam, llas§achu§ett§ Ox y -u ★ ★ ★ Miss Luella Dunning ' , who as teacher and guid- ance director in Stoneham High School, set for us high standards of achievement; and who now, through your unselfish desire to he of service in a world at war, are teaching others the way of vic- torious living, we sincerely and proudly dedicate this 1945 Yearbook. C IS We, the class of 1945, look ahead with hope to a better world to come with victory. Education is im- portant to that victory; for, truly, as Thomas Paine once said, “These are the times that try men’s souls,” Our country in war and in peace needs the resource- fnlness, the creative abilities, the leadership, and the sense of civic and ethical responsibility that school develops in us. With courage, love of free- dom. and faith in God, as our common heritage, let us strive now and always for ultimate victory! Tribute is here paid to all our boys in the armed forces of our great country. They are fighting for the kind of victory which will bring hope to op- pressed peoples and restore dignity to mankind. Yesterday, these servicemen were our playmates; today, they are the guardians of our liberty. Yester- day. there were for them gridirons, courts, arenas, and baseball diamonds ; today, there are foxholes, cockpits, submarines, and destroyer decks. Yester- day, they had books and lessons; today, they apply their knowledge with resourcefulness. Today we salute them, for tomorrow they bring us peace with victory ! YtUMxiqe, to the. (ZCali As the class of 1945 approaches its Commence- ment, my thoughts turn quite naturally to those of you whose education is interrupted by the war. Some of you are already in the service; others will soon follow. 1 sincerely hope that you will look upon the period of service as a noble and necessary one, but that you will never lose faith in your ultimate goal, and that you will steadfastly determine to re- turn to complete your training for participation in the glorious era which I believe lies ahead, when peace shall come to all the world. The continued in- terest and best wishes of your principal and your teachers will follow all of you as you go forth to fulfill your destiny in the world of men. WILLIAM M.

Let fading thoughts in your graying head Revive the days that seemed so dead. Let youthful spirits leap anew Like children’s feet in morning dew. Those joyous days when time was naught, And the prankster’s rule was “Don’t get caught!” How ever could your memory pass Those carefree days of rationed gas, When all a person had to eat Was salad cold and never meat. Your feet in leather sacks encased Because the coupon you did waste. When times are hard and spirits low, Let bygone memories rise and glow.

W ell, there 1 was, all set for a nice, quiet eve- ning at home in my Park Avenue penthouse. The servants had the night off, the wife was away for the week-end, and 1 was sprawled out on my favorite sofa. The radio was playing a Chopin nocturne. 1 was just starting the latest Crime Club mystery when the telephone rang. I was tempted not to answer it ; but after due consideration and a great effort, I removed my- self from the sofa and picked up the receiver. “Hello? Yes, speaking . . . Who? Neil Glynn? . . . Sure I remember you. I haven’t seen you since we graduated from Stoneham High School ten years ago. How are you? . . . Glad to hear it . . . What’s that? . . . Reunion Ban- quet? Say, I’d forgotten all about it. When? Next week? . . . And I’m supposed to give the class history! Why hasn’t someone told me? 1 can’t remember back ten years; you’ll have to help me out. Can you recall anything that hap- pened our freshman year? . . . What? . . . Wait a minute; I ' d better jot that down. ‘Paints and Patches’, operetta, starring Madolin Daley, Riddy Hayden, and Gordon Hansell — O.K. . . . You were vice president that year, weren’t you? Do you remember the other officers? . . . Jack Borthwick, president; Mary Crowther, secre- tary; Bob Murphy, treasurer. Didn’t Stoneham win a second-place cup at the Lower Merrimack Valley Basketball Tournament that year? . . . I thought so . . . And the hockey team finished second in the Greater Boston Inter-scholastic League, you say? . . . Thanksgiving Day game? . . . Oh, yes, we were the under-dogs and hadn ' t had a victory all season and we won by one touchdown. That sure was a thriller ! “What about sophomore year? I remember that first Winchester hike and the football game. Boy, that sure was a heartbreaker, losing in the last thirty seconds of play . . . What, Neil? . . . You say Dick Mercer and Bob Mur- phy were the only lettermen? We had quite a few players on the second team, though. What was the name of that Dramatic Club play? . . . What? . . . Oh, yes, ‘A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.’ Mickey MacLean was hilarious as the jester and Riddy Hayden did a swell job as the king. Pat Morrell and Bill Riggs displaved fine talent, too. The class wasn’t very active that year, was it? I guess that was because it was our first year in senior high and we didn ' t know what it was all about. Who were the class officers that year? You were president ; Dick Mercer was vice presi- dent; Margie Coles, secretary; and Bob Mur- phy, treasurer — right? Things are starting to come back to me now. " Let’s see about junior year. Probably the one event we’ll remember longest was the death of our principal, Mr. Watson. His death was a great loss to the school and to the com- munity. We were lucky to have Mr. Nadeau to step in and take his place. How about school activities that year? Remember the football dance when the cheerleaders put on that screwy sketch; and remember how Margie Picot, after it was over, had to explain to the poor innocent teachers what the ‘Academy’ was? Wasn’t that the dance where Mr. Higgins did the ‘Boomps- a-Daisy’ with Miss Regish? . . . That was a riot ! Margie Picot and Joan Wandless were the only two from our class on the cheering squad, weren’t they? ... I ' ll never forget the smile on Riddy Hayden’s face when he intercepted that pass in the Woburn game. He was grinning from ear to ear. And speaking of football, didn’t we have a couple of groovy managers, what with their peg pants and all ! . . . What’s that? . . . Oh, yes, I’d forgotten about the field hockey team. They beat Reading 2-0 and tied their old rival, Melrose, 2-2. There were quite a few junior girls on the team. What about the ice hockey team? . . . Two big upsets? . . . Remem- ber them! How could I forget! The first was the 1-0 win over Melrose, brought about by the superb goal-tending of Don Whiston, a trans- fer from St. Pat’s, and a goal made by Bob Murphy after only fifty-two seconds of play. I didn ' t see that Medford game. Do you remem- ber the score? . . . 1-1. you say? . . . What? . . . Yes. they must have had brilliant team- work. Who were the juniors on the team ; I remember Bay Clark and Joe Doherty . . . Who? . . . Dave Bicknell? That’s right — and Fred Flynn and Ralph Livingstone. As I recall, it was mainly these two games that clinched an all-scholastic berth for Bicknell, Whiston, and Murphy, who, incidentally, was co-captain in his junior year. That’s something that doesn’t very often happen in high-school sports . . . The basketball team finished third in the Middlesex League, didn’t they? ... I remember Dick Mercer played, and Harry Lynch, Bud Dill, and Wes Parsons . . . Who else? . . . Oh, Bill D’Annolfo, Jack Borthwick, Art Donaghev, Larry Meuse . . . Dick Mercer went into the service shortly after the season ended, didn’t he? . . . He started a long line of boys that left our class. The only others I can think of are lack Borthwick, Dan MacLaughlin, and Harry Lynch . . . Pardon? . . . Oh. yes, I’d forgotten about Dick Price and Gordon Mansell . . . be- fore we knew it the baseball season had rolled around. We came up with a beautiful veteran infield, though I confess 1 can ' t recall all of the hoys who played in it. There was Dick Wright at first, and Bud Dill at second . . . What’s that, Neil? . . . Oh. Bud played shortstop. That’s right — Art Donaghey played second. Who was on third? . . . Don Whiston? . . . How about the other positions? . . . Johnny Coffin pitched and Bob Morcira caught . . . That’s right— and that year we finished second in the league, missing the championship by losing a game to Winchester 4-3 in extra innings . . . Did we have a prom, did you say? . . . I ll say we did — our first Junior-Senior Prom, and what hap- pened! We went sixty dollars in debt! The funny part of it was that we held a school dance two weeks later and cleared the debt with a couple of dollars to spare . . . Then came Grad- uation . . . Remember how poised Don Whiston and Pat Morrell were as class marshals? . . . And after the evening was all over, we realized we were seniors ! “Then, after the summer vacation, we em- barked upon the most important year of our high-school careers. It was also to he the big- gest year Stoneham High had had for a long time . . . The first event of importance was the arrival of a foreigner in our midst. Dottie came from Missouri and, through her person- ality, mannerisms, and quaint accent, gave us a lasting impression of the way students in other countries act and live . . . When class elections were held, we found that Don Whis- ton had succeeded you as president and Ralph Livingstone had taken Dick Mercer’s place as vice president. Margie Coles entered her third straight year as secretary; and Bob Murphy, after having been treasurer for three years, turned that job over to you. Incidentally, you were a class officer every year, weren’t you, Neil? . . . Co-captains John Rolli and Ralph Livingstone led the footbal l team through an excellent season, sporting a record of six wins and two losses . . . We sure had a classy cheer- ing squad, too, led by Margie Picot. Let’s see. who were the seniors on the squad? There were Barbara Court— Joan Wandless — and, oh. yes, Ruth and Virginia Morin . . . Remember the dance the football team ran to get money for sweaters? Mr. Higgins really got in the groove when he jitterbugged with Margie Picot to the tune of ‘The Sheik of Araby.’ From ‘Boomps-a-Daisy’ to jitterbugging in one year — boy, he really was solid! I wonder if he in- cluded those pennies in his income-tax return . . Speaking of teachers, when Miss Dunning left us to take a teaching position in Turkey, we lost an outstanding teacher and a valuable friend. She was replaced by Miss Gross . . . Our class made many ‘firsts,’ one of them that we were the class that started the first Boys’ Glee Club that Stoneham High ever had . . . The basketball team was hit hard by the loss of hoys to the service, but they carried on in the fine Stoneham spirit under the capable leadership of Co-Captains Bud Dill and Wes Parsons. If I remember correctly, the most exciting game of the season was with Melrose at Melrose. Wait a minute — I think I’ve got a clipping about that game in my wallet some- where . . . Yes, here it is. I ' ll read it to you. ‘In the dying seconds of the Stoneham- Melrose basketball game, Stoneham was struggling to overcome a 42 to 40 lead. Suddenly Tony Coletta threw in a basket and the game ended a few seconds later in a tie. A three-minute overtime period fol- lowed. After a Melrose score and a foul shot by Bud Dill, the score stood Melrose 44, Stoneham 43. With Melrose trying to freeze the ball. Bud stole it, dribbled a little past half floor, and let the ball fly. It swished through the basket, and the game ended 45 to 44 in a turmoil on the Stoneham bench.’ “The Winter Carnival, climaxed by the Car- nival Ball, was the next big event. King Don Whiston and Queen Margie Picot presided, and the greatest attraction was the first public appearance of the combined Boys’ and Girls’ Glee Clubs. We were a big success . . . Doc Gordon said his hockey team that year was the strongest and best balanced that he had ever coached. He boasted two good lines, two sturdy defencemen, and an excellent goalie. I remember that after having lost to them twice, Stoneham met Medford in the last cru- cial game of the season, the game that was to decide the championship. Here’s another clip- ping on that. ‘Medford had a big edge in territorial play, hut Stoneham came through in the titular contest because of better balance. Stoneham had only seven shots at the Medford goalie but, capitalizing on a mini- mum of opportunities, scored on goals by Wally Cogan, Bob Murphy, Bay Clark, and A1 MacHenry, winning the game 4-2.’ That game clinched the first championship Stoneham had won since 1937, and what a game it was! Six of the boys made the all- scholastic teams — Boh Murphy, Co-Captain Don Whiston, and Fred Flynn the first team; and Wally Cogan, Bay Clark, and Ralph Liv- ingstone the second. On top of losing Co-Cap- tain Dave Bicknell to the Navy after the sec- ond game of the season, we lost Bob Murphy to the same branch immediately after the all- star game with Montreal. These two losses hurt us greatly and were largely responsible for the loss to Natick in our bid for the state championship. Dave Bicknell got his first leave just in time to receive, with Don Whiston, the Oscar Martin trophy at the banquet. That was a grand finale to a season of great accomplish- ments . . . Speaking of accomplishments, Mickey MacLean sure deserves a lot of credit for the big mural he painted depicting all phases of school life. 1 remember that when he was called to go into the Army Air Forces, he devoted his whole two weeks’ February vaca- tion to the mural so he could finish it before he left . . . Remember Rita Reed rushing around the corridors, taking candids of every- body in sight for the yearbook? She must have had a stack a foot high before she was through . . . Didn’t we have a swell time during the senior play? I suppose the third act was your favorite, but boy, it was the second I really enjoyed ! Say, remember how I forgot about the second scene and started changing - into my third-act costume? It ' s a good thing you and Riddy had changes to make. I guess I was still under the effect of that kiss. Didn ' t Riddy do a swell job as Mr. Grayson? Rehearsals weren’t so bad, were they? More darn fun! . . . We must have set a precedent, too, when we held that dance in the assembly hall. Everyone agreed that it was one of the best we’d ever had . . . That assembly when the class honors were announced must have come in April. I don ' t think anybody was surprised when Mr. 5, aducUian AdcUell So nigh is grandeur to our dust, So near is God to man, When duty whispers low, “Thou must,” The youth replies, “I can.” Emerson How nobly this challenge rings in our ears today! We are American youth answering the call to duty. Many of us have already re- sponded to it by serving in the greatest war of history. Seventeen of this graduating class are now in the armed forces. Those of us remain- ing and those returning at the end of the war have, as educated people, a chance to shoulder responsibilities and serve our fellow men as no other graduating class ever had. The security Nadeau named Dick Hodgson, Jean Doyle, and Antoinette Picano as winners of the MacDon- ald Medals and announced that Madolin Daley would give the honor address. It was hard to believe we were almost through school . . . We lost a lot of fellows to the service that last year, and the baseball team was hit especially hard. They lost four key men in Co-Captains Bob Moreira and Johnny Coffin, Art Donaghey, and Don Whiston, though Don played most of the season ... I wonder if I can remember all the fellows who left our senior year. Besides those I’ve mentioned there were Johnny Lembo, Peter Boudin, Nat Simkins — let’s see — Walter Cogan and John Rolli. Who did you say, Neil? . . . Oh, A1 Hanson, Richard D’Entre- mont, Robert Mirick, Sterling Hicks, and Wes Parsons . . . Bill White and Don MacKenzie, too. And Bob Dearth and Norm Houghton went almost at the end of the year. What hap- pened to Austin McHugh? . . . Oh, that’s right — he left to go to Northeastern University . . . Finally the night came when we were all sepa- rated and sent on our various ways, Graduation Night. 1 wonder how many of our ambitions have been realized. “Well, I thought it would be hard to remem- ber anything from high-school days, but 1 guess I’ve been kind of monopolizing the conversa- tion. I think I have enough material to work- on now . . . Say, why don’t you drop around tomorrow and maybe we can have lunch to- gether? . . . Sure, that’ll be fine . . . Okay, then, I’ll see you tomorrow, Neil . . . You bet — so long !” RICHARD SEWARD, ’45 of years spent in high school is over; we face reality now with all the vital problems that adult life presents. If we choose wisely, the road ahead may lead to an abundant life for all. Our opportunity is here, as in every crisis, to show a determined and resolute spirit ! America is passing through a crisis, the re- sult of which, we all hope will be salutary for the nation and its people. Those now in power aspire to establish a just and lasting peace in a world which never again shall be threatened by war. We, the youth of America, must pre- pare ourselves so that we can accept responsi- bilities and fulfill the high ideal. We gain confidence in unsettled times by re- membering the strength shown by other peo- pie, young and old, in periods of crisis. This is not the first time America has faced difficult times. The first President of the United States. George W ashington, struggled to unite the thirteen colonies and to protect them. W’e are all familiar with the harrowing picture of dis- tress presented to us in the winter at Valley Forge. V hat his soldiers endured, Washington endured also ; and to this day we honor him for his loyalty, courage, and perseverance. He was not only a military leader but also a far- sighted and inspiring leader of his people. In his Inaugural Address he said, “The preserva- tion of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” So, under the leadership of Washington, the American peo- ple of the eighteenth century met the crisis. Less than a century later, the unity of Amer- ica was again threatened. The South wanted to secede from the Union. They wanted to estab- lish a government and to elect, from their own people, a leader who sympathized with their cause. It was during this crisis that Abraham Lincoln emerged to save and preserve the Union. Lincoln succeeded in emancipating the slaves and in saving the Union; but before he could carry out his plans i o r reconstruction, he was assassinated. He left us, however, a great heritage, a respect for liberty and the desire to have always " a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.” Later, having been thrown into suffering and confusion by the First World War, the people ot the world, in yet another crisis, hungered for a spokesman, for a leader who could express their ideals and aspirations. Woodrow Wilson, then the President of the United States, was the great statesman who tried to satisfy their longing for security and peace, lie was well trained for this role having realized the strug- gle for democracy in the United States. Wilson led our nation to victory, but his plans for reconstruction were repudiated. The other leaders of the world did not substantiate his Fourteen Points, vital to the maintenance of a world peace. Although his struggle resulted in disappointment, he led the way, stimulated the thinking, so that today we find that many of his ideals have been revived in the course ot the creation of a secure world organization. V hen the late President Roosevelt came into power, he inherited chaos rooted in a world of disorder and a dismayed societv. What an ex- ample of courageous thinking and action he gave us! Conditioned by a personal winning light with infantile paralysis, he fought against all difficulties directly and persistently. First there was the depression, and then there was a Second World War, the biggest war in our history. Roosevelt was competent to help direct the strategy of our most efficiently con- ducted war ; he was capable of working with other great men despite their different political ideas. Indeed, America had a strong man in the White House when one was most urgently needed. Roosevelt not only planned for war, but also prepared for peace at the same time. Franklin Delano Roosevelt missed seeing un- conditional surrender of the Axis; his mag- netic personality was lacking at the peace conference ; and yet he aroused the people to accept the task of carrying out the peace to which he so greatly contributed. In its darkest hours America has always found leadership. This time we, the American people, must face the crisis as a whole. We can see today that in our people lies the ability to meet the crisis through which we are passing. In order to carry this war to final victory and the peace to full fruition, we must relv not upon a magnetic leader, such as our late Presi- dent Roosevelt, but upon ourselves. We must demonstrate tolerance, understanding, justice, and resolution to make cooperation effective. “Only the continued, prayerful, intelligent and active participation of the people will build and maintain a security system.” This is the great test of tomorrow, next year, and the years to come. Fortified with the experience of the past, sustained by the hopeful planning of the pres- ent for an organization of nations to maintain world peace and to achieve world cooperation, we. the typical graduation class, face the future. To be sure it is an unprecedented future; but we are young, we are strong, and we will be courageous. W e graduate today. In other words, we step forward to our new assignments in the world of men. Many of our boys will be in the service of our country for a time, but they will have the chance to lay the foundation of genuine democracy. Some of our girls will become nurses to minister to the relief of suffering humanity. Others will enter business or indus- try to produce goods essential to the well being of our country. Still others of us will enter advanced training schools or colleges to further our education so that we may be prepared to make cultural and professional contributions to our country. Whatever our choice, there will he innumerable opportunities within out- reach. Because of the necessities of war, scientists have had to find substitutes for use in civilian life. One of these substitutes is plastics which have proved to be very valuable. Who are going to produce the new products? We are! Ours are the nimble fingers, strong eyes, and sturdy bodies needed for such work. Besides plastics, the field of aeronautics has vet to be more fully developed. The automobile age is passing. Soon people will be riding heli- copters. A fantastic idea? Yes, but it is bound to be realized. People are extremely skeptical about them now; but so were they doubting when Columbus said that the world was round, when automobiles were first introduced, and even when the Wright brothers said they could fly those things called airplanes. Skepticism leads to proof, and proof leads to new industry. The air age has come within our generation. Invention and industry are always young. Whenever there is a shortage of anything, human interest is stimulated. Consider, for example, the stories of magnesium and syn- thetic rubber. After the war there will be as many dififerent kinds of synthetic rubber as there are manufacturing companies. Think, too, of the limitless possibilities in electronics. What a challenge all of these present to youth ! Not only will the field of industry be en- larged, but also that of professions. Our boys will need much attention when they return from war. Their minds and hopes will have been so shattered by war that careful guidance will be needed to restore them to normal liv- ing conditions. Some of them have seen human- ity vilified; some have been a prey to inhuman treatment; still others have witnessed the de- plorable living conditions in countries abroad, conditions much worse than we, in America, can ever imagine. Expertly trained nurses and doctors will be needed to bring our soldiers back to perfect health. Psychiatrists will be needed to restore confidence in some of the boys who feel their cause is lost because they are without an arm or leg. sight or hearing. Physiotherapists, dentists, social workers, technicians; teachers, librarians, clergymen, all will be of vital importance in the postwar period. The time is coming when we will take an active part in community life. It will not be long before we shall be voting for the leaders of our community. We will want them to be the best leaders and to direct our affairs in a clean and honest way. Therefore, doesn ' t it stand to reason that we, ourselves, should be the best possible citizens? Let us resolve to serve our community in all possible ways. What are some of these ways? We can be leaders of young people’s associations and belong to other organizations which tend to increase our interest in doing good for others. We do not have to look very far in order to find a way to serve. W hat we do now, as young people, for our community will determine the kind of leaders we shall be in the greater tasks of run- ning our national government and having- active participation in world affairs. We must show a marked interest in inter- national affairs if we wish to create interna- tional brotherhood. Let us resolve to be toler- ant. It is the basis for international peace. This is a challenge to each and every one of us. Let us accept it. Countries have been pillaged by war. Millions of innocent children have been left without parents. Families have been broken up. Their homes and belongings have been des- troyed. This is our problem as well as theirs. These devastated countries need rebuilding. Their peoples must be cared for. America is in a position to do just this. We can clothe them, feed them, lend them materials with which to rebuild their homes, and offer education to their leaders so that they may learn something of our principles of democracy. We can help them to help themselves. These are some of the things we can and must do in order to insure world peace. The world lies in a sad state of affairs, but herein lies a challenge to our ingenuity as leaders. Some one from our generation will be Presi- dent of the United States! All of us can be active citizens helping to maintain the high standards of our American way. Let us prove ourselves enthusiastic leaders with high ideals. Nothing is impossible if we are firm in our intent and courageous in our desire to make our lives noble examples of integrity and hon- orable service. As future leaders, we must use all our influence to insure the dignity of man; to protect our cultural heritage; to safeguard, with charity and justice, the freedom of all peo- ples. A grave responsibility rests on our shoul- ders. Let us put our faith in God and “in this faith go forth into the clean world our hands can make.” ACTIVITIES ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION HL i, W- jk m m Mm 9 1 1 lp|§ President ARTHUR DONAGHEY Vice President JEANNE PICOT Secretary BETTE THOMPSON T reasurer NEIL GLYNN Faculty Manager AIR.

Led by Co-Captains Don Whiston and Dave Bicknell. the team captured the coveted G. B. 1. cup. We listed six players on the All-Scholastic team : on the first team, goalie Don Whiston, defenseman Fred Flynn, and center Bob Murphy; on the second team, wings Bay Clark and ally Cogan. along with defenseman Ralph Livingstone. All performed well in both all-star games and helped the G. B. I.’s to win. Stoneham at the start of the year was clearly the strongest team in the league with its two alternate lines: fohn Rolli and Joe Doherty wings, and ally Cogan center on one line; Dave Bicknell and Bay Clark wings, and Bob Murphy center on the other. The defense of Ralph Livingstone and Fred Flynn, rated by sportswriters to be the hardest hitting in the league, left little to be desired; while Don W his- ton in the goal played well enough to be acclaimed the best goalie in the league. The season was climaxed by a testimonial ban- quet at the Town 1 1 all with Art Ross. Boston Bruins’ manager, Jerry Nason of the " Globe,” Colonel Fgan of the “American,” among the speakers. A week later the entire team had dinner with the Bruins and then attended the game as the Bruins’ guest. First Row: B. Clark. J. Rolli, W. Cogan, D. Whiston, D. Bicknell, J. Doherty, F. Flynn, R.

Stoneham was capably coached by veteran " Doc " Gordon, who was assisted by John Russell as backfield coach and Mr. Hig- gins of the faculty. Led by Co-Captains Ralph Livingstone and Johnny Rolli. the team rolled up impressive victories over Concord, Ipswich, Punchard, Howe, Lexington, and Woburn. Winchester and Reading overpowered the Stonehamites by sheer weight. The team was one of the scrappiest ever to wear the Blue and White uni- forms of Stoneham High. They showed a great deal of teamwork and indi- vidual ability too. Stoneham scored 89 points against the opponents’ 65. They crossed the double white stripes for 14 touchdowns. The 5 extra points were scored on three passes and two place kicks. The touchdowns were scored by D’Annolfo 5, Moreira 4. Murphy 2, Rolli 2, Livingstone 1, and Gibson 1. The extra points were scored by Rolli 3. Gibson 1, and Murphy 1. The members of the team were awarded sweaters for their good season. Next year the co-captains will be Tony Spadafora and Albert MacHenry. Opponent Stoneham Concord 0 18 Ipswich 6 13 Lexington 7 19 Winchester 20 0 Punchard 6 19 Woburn 6 7 Reading 20 0 OhAouqh the. Hoop. Although handicapped this year by the loss of veterans, Dick Mercer and I larry Lynch, the basketball team fought its way to fifth place in the Middle- sex League. The team was ably coached by Mr. Buono and led by Co-Cap- tains Bud Dill and Wes Parsons. The scoring honors were divided between Hud Dill, Willie D’Annolfo, and John M inton. Tony Coletta, Art Donaghey, Wes Parsons were the principal “feeders” with A1 Hanson and Larry Meuse controlling the backboards. Dick Seward, Neil Glynn, George Proodian, and Billy Bears were outstanding in second-team play. The team showed a great deal of team work coupled with individuality enough to make them danger- ous to any team. John M inton and Tony Coletta were elected co-captains for next year at a meeting of the lettermen. Bxdi A team hard hit by the loss of its star. Co-Captain John Coffin, has had to fight an uphill battle for its position in the Middlesex League. The veteran infield was offset by the fact that experience was lacking in the outfield. As the Yearbook went to press. Co-Captain Bob Moreira was handling for John M inton on the mound. Dick W right was on first, while Don M ' histon was perched on third base. The veteran keystone combination of Bud Dill at short and Art Donaghey at second base was still intact. The lone outfield candi- date was Don Gibson. Sophomores who saw service in the outfield were Ken Gelineau, Dave MacDonald, Don Dewhurst, and Chesley Corkum. Qxwm, the OxetcL Superlative playing on the part of Co-Captains Jeanne Picot and June Kettell, comparable to any ' in girls ' hockey history, enabled the Stoneham hockey team to complete the season without a defeat. Much of the credit for this success may be given to Mrs. Lawson, expert coach, who drilled the girls constantly on up-to-the-minute techniques and strategic plays. Dottie Bergfors, new to our school this year, was a very helpful addition to the team. Her speedy dribbling contributed greatly to the victories. The girls played vigorous hockey throughout the season. The Melrose game was the high point of the season, for Melrose is an old rival and frequently acclaimed champion by the surrounding towns. The 1-0 victory for Stoneham, therefore, was thrilling to all. do-Winametit 0;eu-eA P asketball is one of the sports dearest to the hearts of the girls of Stone- ham High. This year as always there has heen a cheerful spirit of eager com- petition and competent teamwork within the various groups. There have been many intramural games and practice periods, but the final champions were determined at the tournament. Congratulations to the seniors! The tourna- ment was a marked success and was played to capacity attendance. The root- ers for each team were enthusiastic, and each team lived up to the vociferous encouragement of its followers. One of the greatest benefits derived from these basketball games is the satisfaction of clean and fair sportsmanship. THE TRAFFIC SQUAD Rtue and Ittfdte. QEu The Blue and White Club, to which nearly all the senior high pupils belong, again met great success this year as it sponsored the Winter Carni- val to raise funds for senior scholarships. The Carnival was just about the biggest and most anticipated event of the year — three days of fun and sports! The skating races, this year held at Kimball’s Pond, consisted of special events for all ages; and everyone good naturedly competed for the prizes which had been donated by the Stoneham merchants. That evening, a fancy skating exhibition and the exciting hockey game with Medford, our rival for the championship of the G. B. 1., were beheld by thousands of shivering but faithful students and townspeople. A basketball game with Wakefield and numerous skiing events also helped to round out the week’s events. The un- forgettable week was topped oft with the Carnival Ball. The high spot of this event was a beautiful coronation celebration with King Donald Whiston ; Queen Marjorie Picot ; and their attendants Dorothy Bergfors, Norma Collier, Barbara Court. Marilyn Jelley, Iva Langille, Dorothy McDermott, Ruth Morin, Patricia Morrell, Jeanne Picot, Bette Thompson, and Joan Wandless. Among the many fine features of the evening’s entertainment was the first appearance of the combined Girls’ and Boys’ Glee Clubs. S-ihlb.’ Q.tee.
