Tennyson QujJieiuoAd Perhaps what will count most in the present period of crisis in human relationships, in the peace that follows war, will be the quality of vision shown by this generation of graduates.

V1fleA.iatye, tv tfie tfemoAi Where there is no vision the people perish Prov. 29:18 The future of our great country is largely in the hands of youth. Do not let those who exclaim about how dark the days are keep you from working hard to make America the kind of country in which you wish to live. Continue your study of history and government to learn where the great mistakes as well as the great achievement have been made. We have tried to teach you to think clearly, to weigh carefully all matters of vital interest, and then to use your best judgment in making your de- cisions. Keep faith in God and in yourselves to strengthen you for the great work which lies before you. Carry on, so that your best vision may come true. CHARLES E.

O iceAi Walk with faith, and be sure you’ll get through it; For " Where there’s a will there’s a way. Cook President Francis McHugh Vice President Donald Sullivan Secretary Marjorie Ringham Treasurer Robert Swift Chairman of Social Committee William Simkins OlaAA Uiito-ty I was typing the feature story for the Sun- day edition of the “New York Tribune.” My mind was is far-off New Mexico, the locale of my story, when Slim, the copy hoy, stuck his head around the corner and yelled, “Hey Sal! The old man wants to see you.” An- other assignment. This time it was to inter- view Doctor Ramona Bruno, the famous psychiatrist. I was to see her after her lec- ture at the convention of the National Med- ical Society that same evening. I knew we had been classmates at Stoneham High School years ago, hut I wondered if the fa- mous doctor would care to recall those care- free, happy days. Imagine my surprise and delight when, having been ushered into her presence, she immediately recognized me and cried out in delight. Immediately all thoughts of the as- signment were swept from my head, and the two of us were off reminiscing about our schooldays together at Stoneham High. Mona started, “Remember our freshman year? We were all enthusiastic about foot- ball. The Winchester hike and football game were the great events of that year! We all hiked over in a group led by our ex- uberant cheerleaders. What fun it was!” “It certainly was heartbreaking,” I said, “to lose that game in the last fifteen seconds of play after having outplayed them most of the game.” “That year our English teacher, Miss Al- ger, left us to join the WAGS.” Mona re- minded me. “But we were fortunate to have Mrs. Hines, a former Stoneham teacher, to sub- stitute for her,” 1 replied. “A1 MacHenry was president of the class that year, Sal, wasn’t he?” “Yes, Mona, and Ethel Fullford was vice- president; June Berry, secretary; Baxter Little, treasurer; and Barbara Morin, chair- man of the social committee. We put on a dance called the Freshman Hop. It was quite a success, too. Don’t you remember V” " Yes, Sal, I do! The Dramatic Club play that year was called ‘A Yankee in King Ar- thur’s Court,’ wasn’t it? We didn’t have much to do with the play itself, but we were part of an enthusiastic audience.” “The sophomore year was a very exciting one for us, Mona, as it was our first year in the senior high school. We certainly thought we were something pretty special that first day of school as we proudly walked up to the senior high !” “Yes, we were proud, Sal, hut also a little hit frightened. The question in everyone’s mind was, ‘How will we fare in high school ?’ ” “The saddest and probably most remem- bered event of that year, Mona, was the passing of Mr. Watson, our beloved friend and principal.” “Indeed it was, Sal, for he was a true friend to all girls and hoys.” " It was the first chance any of the girls had to enter competitive sports and we did enter them with a bang! The field hockey team beat Reading 2-0, and tied our long- standing rival, Melrose 2-2.” “Do you remember the football dance and skit put on by the cheerleaders? It was a riot! The only cheerleader from our class was Alma Werre. Wasn’t it at that dance that Mr. Higgins did the ‘boomps-a-daisy’ with Miss Regis? I thought they were loads of fun!” ‘‘The Dramatic Club was reorganized that year, Mona, and Dot Hastings was an officer from our class. Who were our class offic- ers that year?” “Tony Spadafora was president; Ethel Fullford was vice-president; June Berry, secretary; Louise Poole, treasurer; and Shirley Thompson, chairman of the social committee. The girls must have had pri- ority !” “The basketball team finished thind in the Middlesex League, Mona. The only let- terman from our class was John Winton.” “The annual prize-speaking contest was held in May, and a member of our class, June Berry, won first prize. Quite an honor, Sal, I’d say for a sophomore. Joanne Eng- lish, another sophomore, received honor- able mention!” “Baseball marked the end of the sports season of ’4 1 with Stoneham having won eight games and lost eight games. Even Slieven !” “Say, Sal, do you remember the basket- ball tournament? What fun we had get- ting ready for it with cheers, costumes, and those rip-roaring songs.” “June! Then the Class of ' ll graduated and we were juniors! What happened of importance that year, Mona?” “When the class election returns were counted, Sal, we found our new executive oflicers were Tony Coletta, president; Gor- don Lister, vice-president; Joanne English, treasurer. You were chairman of the social committee; and June Berry was to serve her third successive year as class secretary.” “It seems to me that as I recall it, Mona, that the football season was a great success that year with Stoneham winning six games out of eight. Lettermen were Baxter Little, Dave Trenholm, A1 MacHenry and Tony Spadafora. The cheerleaders from our class were Alma Werre, Marilyn Jelley and Bar- bara Morin.” “Remember the after-school s essions with Mr. Davis, Sal? Tonic and pop was the or- der of the day. The algebra tests somehow seemed easier with some energy afforded us by refreshments. It was fun!” “Another interesting junior subject was chemistry with the lab periods on Wednes- day. It’s still a miracle to me that we never blew anybody sky high !” “Our class was well represented on the field hockey team with Bea Turner, Laura Livingstone, Ruth Buck, Joanne Cockerille and I all receiving our letters.” “The basketball team was handicapped by the loss of many outstanding players to the service, hut the hoys carried on with a great spirit. I recall Johnnie Winton and Tony Coletta as the outstanding players from our class, Mona.” “And what fun we had going to the hock- ey games in the Boston Garden on the ‘Yel- low Peril.’ We had a wonderful time cele- brating our victories; and victories they were, for that year Stoneham won the G.B.I. Hockey League Championship.” “The next big event was the Winter Car- nival, Mona. It was at the ball that the com- bined Boys’ and Girls’ Glee Clubs first sang together. They were a big hit!” " I guess it was just about this time in the year, Sal, that our class started losing hoys to the service. Two I remember were John- ny Melkonian and Boh Dorrie.” “Did we have a prom, Mona?” “I 11 say we did, Sal, and a good one too, with Ken Reeves and his orchestra playing.” “Next came graduation. How lovely and poised were Marilyn Jelley and Gordon Worthcn as the junior marshals. After the evening was finished we realized that we were seniors. “After a wonderful summer vacation, Sal, hack to school we went to start on what was to be the most important of all our school years. We were seniors, the Class of ’46!” “In September we started the year off ' right with the A. A. Dance. The football season came and went, and though our scores weren’t the best, Mona, the games were nevertheless very exciting. The sea- son started with a victory when we beat Ip- swich. Charlie Layman, Dave Trenholm, and Co-Captains A1 MacHenry and Tony Spadafora all did well in the games.” “Remember the football team put on a dance and the cheerleaders led some cheers, Sal! They certainly were snappy in their blue and white uniforms. Cheerleaders from our class were Alma Werre, captain of the squad, Marilyn Jelley, Barbara Morin, Ruth Buck, Shirley Knight and Shirley Thomp- son. They were something to he proud of.” “The girls’ field hockey team tied Win- chester ()-(), beat Malden 6-0, and was beat- en by a new rival, Swampscott 1-0. You were a co-captain, weren’t you, Mona? And Joanne Cockerille was the other. With the help of Miss Hannant, we put on a banquet for ourselves, and it certainly was fun. Our brilliant idea of having paper plates so that we wouldn’t have to do dishes was a brain- storm !” “The senior class elections were held, and Bill Bears became our president; Tony Co- letta, vice-president; Bucky, secretary; Lynn, treasurer; and Alma Werre, chair- man of the social committee.” “The basketball team captained by John- nie Winton and Tony Coletta and coached by Mr. Buono was among the best. Bill Bears, Lefty D’Annolfo, Pat Vacca, George Proodian, Charlie Layman and Tony Spad- afora made up the seniors on the team. “The Winter Carnival was the next event of importance, Sal. The races went off well, hut we were disappointed in the hockey game. Every day we set to play Rindge, the G.B.I. Champions, the weather was bad. We were disappointed, hid the wonderful Winter Carnival Ball fully made up for our disappointment. Remember the pageant the officers of the dramatic club helped plan with Miss Cross? King Gordon Worthen and Queen Marilyn Jelley presided over the carnival court with a regal air as the court entertainers performed. Remember Dave Trenholm’s and my singing of Must a Little Fond Affection, Sal ’ The ceremony was climaxed by the grand march led hv Fred- die Austin as old King Winter.” “In February we found our class pres- ident, Rill Rears, was to leave us to join the Navy. The night before he left a party was held for him in the gym, and he was pre- sented with a silver identification bracelet from the class.” “Didn’t we have a swell senior play, Sal ‘? The title ‘Out of the Frying Pan’ — and into the lire — was typical of our class. After see- ing the play we realized that we had some real talent in our class. Wasn’t Jo English a panic as the landlady? And Frannie Leary was a riot ! Nobody could have been as dumb as Dumb Dottie; the way Alma Wer- re played that part was amazing!” “I’ll bet Dwight Crow liked his part! And how could Smitty have been so cruel to poor little Alma? Gracie Tauro should get a medal for her tine performance under the handicap she had.” SAaduatian AdcfoeAl “Let us reckon upon the future. A time will come when the science of destruction shall bend before the arts of peace; when the genius which nullifies our powers which creates new products — which diffuses comfort and happiness among the great mass of people shall occupy in the general estimation of mankind that rank which rea- son and common sense now assign to it.” So reads a well-known quotation. We, the graduating class of 1!)1(5, are stepping out into a world strengthened by the past and disrupted by the present a world look- ing forward to a future which will offer something better than has been offered by either the past or the present. The fate of the world is the problem facing us today. In our hands are placed the weapons of de- struction and the instruments of peace. Our use of them will determine our route, down- ward to despair and destruction or upward to prosperity and peace. “In April the class assembly was held to announce the class honors. None of us was surprised when Mr. Nadeau announced the winners of the MacDonald Medals as Ken- neth Sanford, Ruth Gile, and Mary Valente, and Ruth Ruck as the one to give the grad- uation address. It was at this class meeting that we realized we were almost at the end of our high school years.” “Our class, I remember, Mona, was the first to have a spring concert. It was held in April and featured the junior high band, (lie orchestra, and the combined Roys’ and Girls’ Glee Clubs.” “Remember, Sal, how we waited and planned for the prom, the class banquet, and the many other class events that ended only too soon before June 13, 1946, that night of nights graduation! We were to be separated and each go his different way. Some were to go on to college; others, out into the business world. We all wondered if we would fulfill tbe ambitions we had on that night.” “Mona, we’ve been talking a long time, and I haven’t any information about your career for the paper. Well, never mind! I’ll come tomorrow and interview you. It’s been wonderful recalling our high school years. They certainly were great!” SALLY LAWSON Where do we, as graduates, stand in re- lation to the world and the problems con- fronting it? The second great war of this century has just been brought to an end. World War I was fought “to make the world safe for democracy.” World War II was to be tbe war “to end all wars.” Are we going to let the peace for which our fathers and brothers yes, even some of our schoolmates -fought, be lost? If not, we must start building now towards the one world of the future. Our country has felt, to some extent, the disastrous effects of war; but this country was not invaded, not conquered, not subju- gated. Because of that, we are in a position to set the pace for the peaceful progress of tbe world. Our natural resources and eco- nomic stability put our country in a position of international leadership in this period of reconversion and reconstruction. Already we have taken the preliminary steps by OFR RESPONSIBILITIES TODAY sponsoring ' and taking part in international conferences, the San Francisco Peace Con- ference representing the highest achieve- ment so far in that direction. We are lend- ing our support to the United Nations which, in spite of temporary stalemates, have accomplished much for world unity. Hut even a strong nation such as ours can- not undertake these fulfillments unless its citizens assume their individual responsibil- ities. The individual who works to make a better home, a better community, a better nation, is the citizen who will finally make a better world. The kind of world we have in the future will he the kind of world we start building today. This is our challenge! “To every man there openeth A way, and ways, and a way, And the high soul climbs the high way And the low soul gropes the low, And in between on the misty flats The rest drift to and fro. Hut to every man there openeth A high way and a low And every man decideth The way his soul shall go.” What kind of world do we live in? First of all it must contain those four freedoms of the Atlantic Charter freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want, freedom from fear. Of these four, the first two are already almost universal. Even the countries recently under Axis control are experiencing a foretaste of democracy. The recent elections in Japan are a good ex- ample. Churches have been reopened in liberated countries, and their people can now worship as they please. The other two freedoms are a larger problem. Probably the greatest fear of the small nations has been the fear of invasion and of the viola- tion of their sovereign rights by some lar- ger power. If the United Nations are strong enough within their organization they can guarantee freedom from this fear. Freedom from want is a responsibility which strikes nearer home. In our country, most of our people can obtain a living wage and a de- cent home. This is not true in other coun- tries. It must he true if we are to have the kind of world we want. We must find some way to ensure all people the right to make a living wage, to have enough to cat and enough to wear, to live in a decent home, and to hope for a higher standard of living and education. There must he opportun- ities for every man to advance as far as his individual means will allow him without de- priving his fellow citizen of the same op- portunities. How can we prepare ourselves for the task of making a better world? We must begin with individual general education. The education we gain in our public schools is the foundation. To this must he added specialized training in such fields as econo- mics, engineering, agriculture, and medi- cine. The average citizen of 1946 has more education than the average citizen of any preceding generation. As the level of edu- cation rises, society demands a higher stan- dard of living. Education, then, is the first step toward a higher standard of living for ourselves and for other people throughout the world. In addition to the general education which is our foundation and the specialized train- ing which guarantees a decent living, we need other kinds of education. Since the beginning of history cultural education has been a crown on the head of man. Art, lit- erature, and music are all part of this edu- cation which promotes understanding am- ong nations. It was Albert Einstein who said, “Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.” The literature of any country gives us the finest thoughts of its people. The work of any great artist is a portrayal of character. A line piece of music needs no translation from one language to another. The style and rhythm may show national charcteris- tics, hut all over the world the music can be interpreted by men of other countries and played as the composer himself wished it. Goethe, Shakespeare, and Homer in the field of literature; Handel, Beethoven, and Mozart in music; Leonardo da Vinci, Mich- ealangelo, and Rendu andt in art do not be- long to any one country hut to the world. Through their works we gain a better un- derstanding of their countrymen and devel- op a greater tolerance toward those whose traditions and backgrounds differ from ours. Knowledge and understanding of the great works of the past help us to under- stand and appreciate the cultural gifts which have been brought to this country in more recent times by persons of other na- tionalities who have come here as immi- grants. Another kind of education which we must have is education in world citizenship. “If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world and that his heart is no island cut off from other islands but is a continent be- tween them.’’ In our individual homes and communities we can first practice being good citizens. We must take an interest in our own town government and in the people that make up the town. We must learn to work together. We readily accept such privileges as free education and the right to vote, hut we are often hesitant in using that education and taking advantage of that right in giving a little of our time and ef- fort in return. We also need to know what is going on in the world around us. To live in an ever-changing world such as ours we have to be alert to its increasing needs and varying conditions. Newspapers, movies, and the radio allow us little excuse for not knowing what is going on in other parts of the world. We see, then, that to prepare ourselves to accept the challenge of today’s conditions we need a good general education, a broader cultural education, and education for world citizenship. What means are offered us to obtain this needed preparation V ' The golden door of opportunity is wide open to the graduate of today. Education has progressed to the ex- tent that every boy and girl in the United States can have at least a high-school edu- cation. With this as a background we may enter trade, commercial, and nursing schools, colleges and universities. The num- ber of schools and colleges is constantly in- creasing, and there is greater expansion of facilities and curriculum within the individ- ual schools. For example, our own state is offering increased opportunities for further education. Special courses have been set up at the state teachers’ colleges for return- ing veterans who have not completed their high-school courses. Many towns are add- ing two years to the high-school curriculum to provide junior-college work. Boston University has recently announced the ad- dition of a new General College designed to offer college work to students who might not meet college requirements elsewhere and to givt in two years of college work a general cultural course. Opportunities for financing a college education are available to high-school graduates who can qualify for scholarships, and the G.I. Bill of Rights offers financial aid to veterans. Scientifically we stand better equipped to handle the problems facing us than the graduates of earlier decades. In our gen- eration has been made probably the great- est scientific advance of all time. Improve- ments in air transportation have so dimin- ished the size of the world that one may en- compass it in sixty hours. Compare that with the time it took our forefathers to travel a hundred miles! By means of trans- atlantic telephones we can know almost at the moment of occurrence what is going on in a remote part of the world, and by means of radio-photos we can almost see those events happen. Think of the modern inven- tions within reach of our fingertips in our own homes and communities! Think of the recent developments in electricity, scien- tific research, and the manufacture of syn- thetic products! Think of the great advances made during the past decade in surgery and medicine, advances speeded by wartime needs and now converted to peacetime uses! With all these developments now available, who can foresee the world of the future, en- riched by such inventions as radar and jet- propulsion and the almost completely un- explored possibilities of atomic energy? It is well to remember that this scientific ad- vance is the work not just of one nationality but of scientists of many countries working together for a common purpose. Morally and spiritually also we are better equipped to face the future than were our ancestors. Today’s young people attend church and take part in church activities, more often because they want to than be- cause they are made to. Many public schools are now allowing time for religious educa- tion, and colleges are offering courses to students interested in that field of work. It is interesting to note indications of increas- ed spiritual dependence in wartime. The evacuation of Dunkirk is almost always mentioned as a miracle; and you have all heard the quotation, “There are no atheists in foxholes.” Many of the books based on war experiences show in their titles the spiritual help and support which their au- thors experienced. Examples are “We Heard the Angels Sing” by Lieut. James Whittaker, “God is My Co-Pilot” by Col. Robert Scott, and “Pilots Also Pray” by Capt. Tom Harmon. And what about such song titles as “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition” and “Coinin’ in on a Wing and a Prayer”? During this war also there lias been noticeable evidence of less hatred among tbe members of tbe armed forces. They were lighting against the principles for which their opponents stood and not be- cause they were German or Japanese. This attitude will help toward the building of a better world because at least a few people have grown big enough to separate the deed from the doer. Today we graduate. Graduation is not an ending but a beginning. We must begin to- day to build a better world. We must give our support to the steps toward permanent peace already taken at the San Francisco Conference and at the meetings of the Unit- ed Nations. It is now up to us to add to what the great men of our time have already accomplished. We must prepare ourselves to meet the challenge of making a better world. We can take advantage of the gen- eral education which is given us in our pub- lic schools. Through literature, art, and music we can gain the cultural education which will create better understanding and more tolerance. We can be good world cit- izens by first being good citizens in our homes and communities and by keeping well informed on international questions and world conditions so that we can discuss world affairs intelligently and vote con- structively. Through educational, scientific, and spiritual advance, we are given the in- struments of a lasting peace. That peace is our greatest responsibility. What higher challenge could any generation have? To work for something wholeheartedly is to achieve it. The world of the future will be tbe world we start building today. “But dream not helm or harness The sign of valor true; Peace hath higher tests of manhood Than battle ever knew.” RUTH M. BUCK ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ SAaduatio-n Hymn, Ob, give us strength to find the way, O Lord, And guide us on the path that leads to right, And save ns from life’s pitfalls, dearest Lord, And lead 11s from the darkness to the light.

Despite this handicap, the team tied Concord in the first game and beat Ipswich in the second game of the season. Although the boys were not successful in other games, they fought hard and knew they were developing a real team for next year. Co- captains Tony Spadafora and A1 MacHenry played in the backfield, while the senior linesmen were Dave Trenholm, Charlie Layman, Frank D’An- nolfo, Llyod Fillmore, Baxter Little, Norman Leet, Stan Saxby, and Bruce Bears. Not until almost midseason did the hockey team really begin piling up scores. Coach “Doc” Gor- don finally hit a winning combination with Co- captains A1 MacHenry and Dave Trenholm as the spark plugs of the team. Baxter Little and Gor- don Lister set good examples for fast hockey, and Jesse Wade watched the goal with an eagle eye. A1 MacHenry and Dave Trenholm made the Great- er Boston Interscholastic League All Star Squad and Coach Gordon was named coach of the league squad. All this contributed to a belated hut wel- come streak of success. HOCKEY Front Row: C. Corkum, K. Gat- ineau, D. MacDonald, D, Dewhurst. Second Row: W. Buckley, G. Lister, R. Page, A. MacHenrv D.

The team first tasted defeat at the hands of Swampscott with a score of 1-0. The season ended with a banquet held in the high school. The annual girls’ basketball torunament was held this year on Friday night, March 22. Much excitement preceded the night of the final games aas the class teams practiced, and our loyal classmates planned special songs and cheers for the tournament. The gay and colorful cheering sections for sophomores, juniors and seniors highlighted the opening of the contest. The champions this year were the juniors, who beat the sophomores and then preceded to edge out the seniors with a score of 15-12. Thus ended another season of basketball.

MuiicaC Ylotei, We are proud of the increasing appreciation for music at Stoneham High School, and we attribute thas to the inspiration we have received from the three talented directors of the music clubs, Miss Gilda Drago, Mr. George Ark well, and Mr. Rolland Tapley. Miss Gilda Drago, who studied piano at the Boston Conservatory of Music, and graduated from Boston University College of Music, is the director of the Girls’ Glee Club. Her talent is recognized not only in school but throughout the town. Her piano solos at the Teachers’ Club and the World Friendship Association as well as her accompaniment for Mr. Tapley at the Boys’ Assembly, have given pleasure to all music lovers. Mr. George Arkwell, the director of the Boys’ Glee Club, is well known to musical circles in Stoneham. His genial personality has endeared him to the club and has been responsible for the large numbers of boys in the group this year. The high school orchestra is honored to have as its leader Mr. Holland Tapley, first violinist in the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Tapley al- so plays with the Boston Symphony Artists and, in the summer, with the famous Tanglewood Quartette. He displays in his directing not only his unusual musical ability but also a sympathetic understanding of young people. One of the outstanding features of the Winter Carnival Coronation Pageant this year was the singing of the combined Boys’ and Girls’ Glee Clubs of nearly three hundred voices in three-part harmony. The audi- ence was greatly impressed, too, by the duo-piano accompaniment of the pianists, Jean Penta and Pauline Johnson. The orchestra played at the Boston Herald Spelling Bee in the spring. All three music groups pre- sented an excellent spring concert and took part i n the graduation program. BLUE AND WHITE CLUB (Girls) First Row: M. McGloughlin, K. Chambers, G. Tauro, S Knight, B.

Qabniv-aC Qap M This winter found the members of the Blue and White Club busy with plans for the annual Winter Carnival. With nearly everyone in attend- ance at the high school a member, the club set about to make this year ' s carnival the best ever. Skating races were held at Kimball ' s on January 30; and sled and ski races, the following Saturday at the Unicorn Country Club. The hockey game with Rindge, scheduled for the night of January 30, was not played because of bad weather. The colorful coronation ceremony at the Winter Carnival Ball on Feb- ruary 2 was presented before a capacity audience of nearly one thousand people. The pageant was produced by Miss Gross and the Dramatic Club, with stage setting designed by Mrs. Baker and her art students, dances coached by Mrs. Lawson, and musical numbers of the Boys’ and Girls’ Glee Clubs directed by Miss Drago. Who will ever forget the handsome King and Queen of the Carnival, Marilyn Jellcy and Gordon Worthen; the beautiful attendants, June Berry, Ethel Fullford, Joanne English, Norma Clarke, Wanda Kenney, Jean Buck; old King Winter, Fred Austin; or the spirited pages, Frances Leary and Patty Xelles! The Blue and White (Tub sponsored the Boys’ (Tee Club again this year, and presented two scholarships at graduation. Otlicers of the club were Anthony Coletta, president; Ruth Buck, senior vice president; Don- ald Dcwhurst, junior vice president; Marilyn MacKenzie, sophomore vice president; June Berry, secretary; and Baxter Little, treasurer.
