Aie33aye to the Senior J At commencement when you are looking back upon your school experiences and forward to a hope- ful future, you are keenly aware of the meaning of friendship. Lasting friendship grows out of united effort in a common cause. In the years ahead, there- fore, link your arms with those who need your sup- port in some noble endeavor; and together you will move forward to successful achievement. Do not, moreover, limit your friendship by time or space; for world peace will be realized only when friend- ship, born of mutual understanding, reaches around the world. William M.

For example, the opportunity of acquir- ing a higher education has been welcomed by such a large number of young men and women that the colleges and universities have been unable to expand their facilities in proportion to the need for them. The world also is finding it hard to adjust itself to the rapid increase of sicentific knowledge. The ques- tion of atomic energy alone will require years of re- search before its possibilities are even touched. Ad- vances in medicine and surgery have gone ahead faster than most community hospitals could keep up. Many of these hospitals are still under-staifed and under-equipped, and are further handicapped by in- sufficient funds. In the business world, unions have done much to help labor; on the other hand, strikes, called by unions, have crippled industry. With the solutions to all these problems yet to be found, truly it can be said that great opportunities await the youth of today. Some of the most noticeable advances during the last ten years have been made in the lield of phy- sics. Probably the development which has caused most interest is the discovery of atomic energy. Al- though atomic energy has been used largely as a wea- pon, many experiments are being carried on to find peacetime uses for it. Some scientists say this energy can be used as fuel to drive machinery and heat homes. Science is now trying to use this energy to change substances to artificial radio-active carbon and phosporous for the study and control of cancer. It will be the youth of today who will make the discov- eries of tomorrow. Jet-propulsion, which was first put into practical use during this war, has many possibilities for peace- time developments. Rapid transit will benefit great- ly from this conversion. Jet-propulsion has been re- sponsible for the great speeds which airplanes have been able to attain. It has also had much to do with the large amount of work done on rockets. Inventors believe there is a possibility of using jet propulsion to supply the power to drive boats and automobiles. Radar, another recent discovery, has been an in- valuable aid to both military and commercial planes and ships. With radar, flights have been possible that would ordinarily have been cancelled. Ships have been protected from collisions and have been guided through bad weather. Today the army and navy are training many people in the use of radar. When these people return to civilian life, they can do much to make this world of ours a little more safe. If the time ever comes that the world can con- centrate on peace-time production, radar will play a very important part. As time goes on, all these new developments cannot help but make this world immeasurably smaller. The field of chemistry has made similar advan- ces, particularly in the development of plastics and synthetic materials of all kinds. We often hear the remark that the plastic age is here. Industry is an illustration of the vast number of things that are now being made of plastic. Today this new mater- ial replaces wood, glass, metal, wool, silk, bristles for brushes, and tires. There are numerous other artic- les in which plastics are used extensively. Wood has been made tougher and more durable by the addition of plastics. This wood is used for building homes and making furniture. Plastics can be molded into almost any shape or design in a sin- gle step. “As clear as glass’’ refers to transparent plastics that are used with glass or replace that mat- erial entirely. Sandwiched between layers of ordin- ary glass, this becomes “safety glass.” The three qualities -- nonshatterability, ease of molding, and lightness - have made it popular with industry. It is used to make transparent containers for medical supplies, splints for broken bones, protecting shields for injuries, windows in oxygen tents, casts, and dres- sings to help doctors see “how things are progress- ing.” So much metal was required for our enormous military program in the 1940’s that our government and our industries were forced to use other materials, one of which was plastic. Some of the automobiles made in 1942 had as many as 230 different plastic parts. The clothing industry found many new ways to substitute plastic for fabrics that were scarce. It can be manufactured into satins, velvets, moires, crepes, etc. It does not mildew and perspiration does not affect it. “As we step into the realm of plastics chemistry, " one writers states, “we indeed enter a land of magic where almost anything may happen.” D. D. T. is another wonderful chemical product put to good use during this last war. This can be used to combat diseases carried on the body. Also it is used to kill insects and pests. Wet water is now a great help in fighting fires that ordinary water will not extinguish. Many new drugs have also been perfected. In years to come countless new industries will undoubtedly spring up as a result of the never- ending work of chemists. The field of medicine has also made great pro- gress in the last few years. Blood plasma, new drugs [ 25 1 improved equipment, and more scienti fic methods of treatment have brought about almost unbelievable results. More people have become health-minded be- cause they have been making more money. This has caused a great strain on the various medical in- stitutions. Many advances have been made because of the war. In order to treat all these patients, new and faster methods had to be found. In comparing the mortality rates of the first world war and the second, it is found that a great improvement has been made. Ninety-six per cent of the war casualties of this war returned to action, larg- ely because of the finding out of more about blood plasma. This is an astounding record. Today people generally are living longer than they used to. The infant mortality rate is much lower than ever be- fore. Some diseases than were once considered in- curable are now curable. Medical treatment is easier for the poorer people to secure. Many owe their lives to research which has made it possible to combat diseases with new, fast-acting drugs. Penicillin, used to allay infection, is now al- most routine treatment in all hospitals. Streptomy- cin, a much newer drug, also counteracts infection. The army and navy made frequent use of sulfa drugs. The government is building some fine hospitals and setting a good example to the communities. The hospitalization of veterans is going to be a problem that will be before the public for many years to come. Psychosomatic medicine is being needed more every day. The number of veterans that need this type of care is increasing all the time. Lately many civilians have also been requiring this treatment. Medicine has advanced to the stage where every phy- sician has to have a psychosomatic point of view. In consideration of all these problems, the grad- uate of today can find many places in the world of science into which he can fit himself. Some of us will have part in the practical application of these new developments. Others will step into the research laboratories and continue the work already started. Still others will work into the administrative posit- ions open in all these fields. All of today’s graduates, however, will not be interested in science as a career. The opportunities in business for an ambitious young man are unlim- ited. Opportunities increase in direct proportion as knowledge increases. The only people who make satisfactory use of their opportunities are those who are willing to work for them. Some people never hear opportunity knocking because they are too busy knocking the other fellow. Opportunities have been abundant for every generation, but just notice how few people make use of them. To put it in a simp- ler way — if we can serve each other, or make life more comfortable or pleasurable, we have found an opportunity. “Take advantage of the little oppor- tunities and you won ' t need to wait for a big one.’’ Business today wants people who are willing to work. It wants people who are willing to cooper- ate. It wants people who are willing to follow in- structions. Most people never stop to think that an employer has to make money on them; otherwise there would be no point in hiring them. An employ- ee has to make money for the institution or com- pany for which he is working. If more people would realize this and try to make as much profit for their employers, they would probably get that raise without any trouble and maybe without asking for it. The world is too full of time-servers — or per- haps you call them clock-watchers. From the time they arrive at work in the morning they start watch- ing the clock. This causes time to drag and leads to grumbling. Soon all kinds of troubles arise in the person’s mind. Fault-finding follows. There is a saying that goes, “Happiness is that peculiar sensation which you acquire when you are too busy to be miserable.” It seems that some persons work only when they are being watched. Another saying reads, “Some are bent with toil and some get crook- ed trying to avoid it. " Sometimes it seems that the world has advanced faster than man’s character. One way to eliminate clock-watching is to do something that we like or are interested in. " If the work is worth while, one can afford to work his fingers off for it; if it isn’t, forget it.” People today are afraid of doing more than their allotted work. Life is too easy for them and they don ' t see any point in working. They are too afraid of doing anything that someone else is being paid to do. As one business manager says, “The fear of doing something that someone else is being paid to do, has prevented many people from being paid more for what they are now doing. " People aren’t careful enough of the little things. Man never reaches his highest efficiency until he loves his work more than he loves his pay-envelope. Big jobs usu- ally go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow the smaller jobs. Here’s something that was written by Senator Arthur Capper about a man’s job: “A man’s job is his best friend. It clothes and feeds his wife and children, pays the rent and supplies them with the wherewithal to develop and become cultivated. The least a man can do in return is love his job. A man’s job is grateful. It is like a little garden that thrives on love. It will one day flower into fruit worth while, for him and his to enjoy. If you ask any successful man the reason for his making good, he will tell you it is because he likes his work; indeed he loves it. " The attitude toward work of the average person today is not too different from that of years past. Many of you are familiar with the letter written by [ 26 ] Abraham Lincoln in 1 86 1 in answer to a request from a lady for jobs for her two sons. The letter, addressed to Major Ramsey, ends with these words: “Set them at (work) if possible. Wanting to work is so rare a want that it should be encouraged.” The class of 1947 must go out with an eagerness to work. We have to go out and forget petty prej- udices and deal with principles. Only in this way can we really amount to something. We have to learn by seeing what makes others fail and profiting by their mistakes. The world will be only as good as the people who live in it make it. Unless one is a teamworker, he has little chance of succeeding. A good worker can get along with other people. One Cla33 yUemorieJ Time - 1957 Place - Stoneham High School Characters - Marge Marshall, head of the Depart- ment of English Jeannie Jackson, successful concert singer visiting the school Marge — It seems as if it were only yesterday that we were being taught in this same building. Let ' s take a tour around the building and see what past experiences we can recall. (They start at room 7 on the first floor) Jeanie — Isn’t that the room where we were taught parliamentary law? What unusual subjects we us- ed to debate! Marge — We were even going to buy a policeman’s suit and club, too. (They walk on) Jeanie — What a wonderful time we had electing our sophomore officers. When our adviser, Mr. Richardson, introduced a new way of election by nomination papers and campaign speeches, no one thought it would work out very well; but it turned out to be very successful. We were all happy to have Don Dewhurst elected president; Jack Don- aghey, vice-president; Tony Rotondo, treasurer; and Barb McGilvreay, chairman of the social com- mittee. Marge — Yes, and that was also the year that Jeanne Murcell came through with flying colors at the Boston Herald Spelling Bee finals. She won a beautiful silver cup for the school. Jeanie — Our sophomore year marked our first par- ticipation in the Carnival Ball activities. We re- ceived many compliments on the singing of our glee clubs even if it did seem as if the members would never stop coming through that little side door near the stage. How they ever managed to ar- range three hundred of us on the stage, I ' ll never business man has said. “Ninety per cent of the people who lose their jobs, do so because of a lack of ability to get along with people, not because of a lack of a- bility to do the job.” If the entire class of 1947 is to succeed and is willing to work to obtain that success, there is no end to the opportunities available. Our horizons are unlimited. Each of us should echo the thrilling words found in the diary of an American soldier who died at Chateau-Thierry : “I will work; I will save; I will sacrifice; I will endure; I will fight cheerful- ly and do my utmost, as if the whole struggle de- pended on me alone.” Walter M. Johnson know. (They start upstairs) Marge — In our sophomore year, many historical events as well as successful school affairs took place. First of all was the important conference at Yalta, the last conference that President Roose- velt attended. Then we were all saddened by the death of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Soon afterward we were electrified by the news of the surrender of Germany on V. E. Day, May 6, 1945. The conference at Potsdam ended with the plans for the division of Germany into sec- tions. Jeanie — Then came our junior year! That was a year of more substitutes than in our sophomore year. Oh, here’s the lab where we had our chem- istry class flood. Naturally, it was during 11C1 per- iod. Those faucets simply wouldn’t turn off. I had visions of a teacher strolling peacefully under one of those open windows from which we threw the water before Mr. Lund came to our rescue and shut off the water. Miss Finn ' s room was dir- ectly underneath the lab so we had a slight shower from the ceiling the next period when we went to English. (They continue, through the assembly hall.) Marge — I wonder how many rehearsals have been held in this hall? We certainly had a grand time with Miss Drago and Mr. Arkwell at glee club practice. We added some songs well worth know- ing to our repertoire through them, too. Jeanie — That was the first year we put on a Spring Concert, wasn’t it, Marge — Yes, that was a most successful affair. Weren ' t our marshals at graduation that year Jo Koprek and Ray Iverson, Jeanie — Yes. Remember the big turnout we had at our class dance that year? Let’s see — it was call- [ 2 7 ] ed the " Junior Personality Dance”. The hall was gaily decorated with purple and pink streamers with different colored balloons attached. There were elimination dances, prizes, super records, and a big grand march. It seemed as if the whole school turned out that lovely spring night, and everyone had a grand time. Marge — Let ' s go down to the gym. I want to see if it has changed any. How thrilled and excited we were at our first basketball tournament in our sophomore year. We lost by only one point. That s the closest any sophomore class has ever come to winning. In our junior year we won although the odds were against us, and we came back with flying colors in our senior year to win again. Jeanie — Another proud sport event came in our junior year when our hockey team walked off with the championship. Our football team was good that year too. Marge — Remember how gallant our officers looked when they gave their campaign speeches. President Ray Iverson, Vice President Bob Page, Secretary Joan Severance, Treasurer Jack Donaghey, and Chairman of Social Committee Ginger Martin served us well. Jeanie — Our high school days were happy ones, but our senior year was the best of all. That’s nat- ural, I suppose. Marge — That year, we were all very happy to see many of the teachers return from the armed ser- vices. They were Mr. Lamson, Mr. Miller, and Mr. Elerin, weren’t they? Miss Alger married and did not return. Mr. Higgins, who had been away during part of our junior year, also returned. Many G. I. ' s returned to our classes; but we also lost some of our classmates. Ray Iverson, Fran- nie McDermott, and Bob Masi joined the Navy, and Leroy McHale joined the Army. Jeanie — I remember the Senior Tea Mr. and Mrs. Nadeau gave us, and what a grand program was planned for the girls and their mothers. Mr. Tap- ley played his violin, and Miss Drago gave us sev- eral selections on the piano. The tea will remain in our memories for years to come as an outstand- ing event. Marge — Another of the highlights of the tear was the athletic banquet sponsored by the Booster’s Club and given for the members of the field hoc- key and boys’ hockey team. Beautiful melton jac- kets were presented to all the members of the squad by this organization composed of many interested people who backed the athletic teams of Stoneham High. The Booster’s Club will be remembered by all for their wonderful work and generosity. Jeanie — Our Carnival Ball was a big success that year, too. Don Dewhurst and Wanda Kenney were elected king and queen. The Girls’ Trio and the S. H. S. Specials sang, as well as the combined glee clubs. Didn ' t Bud Strobel, Dot Mahoney, Ken Gelineau and Claire Dinan present an excellent program! We’ll never forget our Lord High Chan- cellor, the one and only Frankie Brown. Marge — The senior play " Ever Since Eve” was one of the best — a complete sell-out! Claire Dinan and Frankie Brown were just made for their parts, and they were supported by an all-star cast which included Jean Vogler, Larry Gregg, Alan Hanson, Mary Hogan, Barbara Farr, Jimmy Brown, Lizzie Morse, Alvin Bears, Ed Harrington, Gerry Har- ington, and George Patton. Jeanie — We elected grand officers that year. Re- member? Bob Page was president; Bill Buckley, vice president; Jo Koprek, secretary; Larry Gregg, treasurer; and Frank Brown, chairman of social committee. We also had a series of assemblies in our senior year, the first series we’d had. We had such famous artists as Nelkanth Chavre, a lectur- er on India; Piero Pierotic, the operatic baritone; Geoffrey F. Morgan, an inspiring lecturer on the subject “What’s the Use”; and Grace Walpert Keene, the dramatic reader of " I Remember Ma- ma.” Marge — The band made excellent progress and were presented uniforms by the Masonic Club. This was the first year that Stoneham High ever had a band. Many thanks were due Mr. Fern and Mr. Jordan for their untiring efforts. Jeanie — We really shook the timbers when we had our football rallies led by our spirited cheerleaders. Pat Nelles was head cheerleader; and Dot Mahon- ey, Ginger Martin, Bobbie Lee, and Claire Dinan helped make up the squad. Marge — We also had many magazine rallies. We received a per cent of all the subscriptions we sold for the school and prizes besides. Jeanie — What a busy year that was! Never a dull moment. The Spring Concert, our Junior - Sen- ior Prom, Prize Speaking, Baccalaureate, Senior Banquet ! Goodness, when you look back at it now, it was just one thing after another, wasn’t it? Marge — It was fun, though. Then came the day that we had all been looking forward to with such pleasant anticipation. Graduation had come and as it came, it was gone, leaving just one thought for us to remember. “Our future lies before us Like a path of driven snow Be careful how we tread it. For every step will show.” [ 28 ] Our future lies before us Like the notes of an unknown song; Some notes we’ll cut too short, And some we’ll hold too long. But always there’ll be the promise Of a better song ahead ; And so, we’ll keep on singing Our song, by God’s own baton led. Of the end, our only knowledge Comes from canticles of the past. We ll go up the scale, then downward; The down-beats will not last! We cannot all sing solos But the harmony all will show If only we sing our very best The song of life here below. Jean Jackson We seniors now stand on the threshold of independent life. 1 he para- mount question in our minds is, “What are we going to do with our lives? ' so, all well and good, providing the right choice is made. Other girls wish to have careers in nursing, medicine, dietetics, music, missionary or social work. Some of the young men desire to go into such professions as engin- eering, medicine, business law, or music. In any case, whatever we choose, we intend to be successful in that chosen work. What is success? It is not wealth, love, happiness, or public acclaim. Though all these are desirable, success is actually personal satisfaction: the knowing that we have done our best and have accomplished all of which we are capable. Success cannot be attained merely by wishing for it, or by paying for it in tangible ways. Success is earned only by hard work. In order to reach the glorious heights of success, we must tread a narrow path, which is often lonely due to the wilderness of misunderstanding and indifference. Thorns, briers, and sharp stones of criticism, opposition, and often scorn and even hatred make the way difficult. It must be remembered that in securing suc- cess we may ofter gain experience by failure; but persistence and patience can overcome failure. In gaining success we may acquire many friends, but we may also make many enemies. As Lincoln said, “One cannot please all ot the people all of the time, but he can please some of the people some of the time. " If success is achieved the right way, there will be no regret. Upon reaching the summit of steep, rocky Mount Success, the clouds of worldly cares will not always be above us; but the sun of approval will often shine on us and warm us with its rays of joy and satisfaction. Let us take the challenge which life offers us. We alone can determine which way, and how high, we shall climb. The reward is according to the effort. How successful shall we be? Many of us have already decided. Some of the girls wish to get married.

Hancox [ 3 ] Z)ouche3 o( Sweet J4armony Music is one of the chief interests of Stoneham High School. In the past few years, music appreciation has grown rapidly under the enthusiastic supervision of Miss Drago, Mr. Tapley, Mr. Ark- well, and Mr. Jordan. Only Mr. Rolland Tapley of the Boston Symphony Orchestra could set a symphony concert edition of “Finlandia” before a high school orchestra and have them play it so well that it held in awe such a distinguished music critic as Rudolf Elie. Mr. Tapley ' s great understanding of young people, and his remarkable musical genius make him an ideal conductor. In the three years that Miss Gilda Drago has been the super- visor of music, the Senior Girls’ Glee Club has grown to a member- ship of two hundred. Miss Drago is a talented pianist, and has a sparkling personality that makes her invaluable to us. Mr. George Arkwell, the director of the Senior High School Boys’ Glee Club, with his winning personality and gift of song has done wonders with the two hundred boys in his group. Mr. Ark- well is another musician of whom Stoneham High is proud. Stoneham High School also has a new band, directed by Mr. Chester Jordan of the high school faculty. It won’t be lopg now until our sports events will be pepped up by the playing of a spirit- ed high school band! These musical groups have had several opportunities to per- form together during the school year - at the Winter Carnival, at the Spring Concert, and at graduation. We seniors regret only that this is our last year to enjoy participating in these activities. [ 33 1 BLUE WHITE OFFICERS President: Kenneth Gelineau Vice President.

[ 34 ] JSlue and White Club The Blue and White Club, under the direction of Mr. Howard Gordon, ran another successful Winter Carnival this year. The main purpose of the Carnival is to raise funds for sponsoring the Boys’ Glee Club and for the scholarships given annually at gradu- ation by the Blue and White Club. The Carnival was again the outstanding event of the school year with students and teachers a- like cooperating to make it a success. Skating and skiing races, hoc- key games, basketball games, and other winter sports were enjoy- ed by all. The climax of the Carnival was the ball on February i. A splendid pageant, “Winter Wonderland”, was given, in which the Girls’ and Boys’ Glee Clubs did some excellent singing. The high point of the evening’s entertainment was the coronation of Donald Dewhurst and Wanda Kenney as king and queen. The beautiful attendants were Claire Dinan, Joan Severance, Josephine Koprek, Marilyn MacKenzie, Elaine Hodson, Barbara Farr, Ah berta Holman, Shirley Martin, Blanche Murray, and Julia Viglione. cAthletic cAldociation The Athletic Association does a great service for the school and for the many students taking part in athletics. By running dances and carrying on the magazine drive, the association helps to provide our teams with new equipment of the highest quality. The magazine drive went over big this year, and enough money was raised to buy uniforms for the newly formed school band. Mr. Winston Lobdell of the faculty should be lauded by all for his un- tiring efforts in making the Athletic Association a wide-awake school activity. [ 35 ] FOOTBALL First Row: E. Harrington. D.

Although the team had a record of three wins and six defeats, no one on the squad ever stopped trying and played with his spirit high through the last game of the season. The team, well coached by Mr. Miller, who return- ed this year from the Navy, was one of the smallest ever to wear the blue and white jerseys of Stoneham. This fact hampered them against such opponents as Winches- ter, Concord, and Reading. Co-Captains Bob Page and Anthony Rotundo did a good job in leading the team. It was a tough break for Bob to be injured in the Howe game and not be able to play for the remainder of the season. Other seniors on the squad were Donald Dewhurst, MacDonald, Chesley Corkum, Edgar Harrington, Whit ' temore, A1 rington.

Through hard practice and the fine coaching of Doc Gordon, the team turned in one of the big upsets of the seeason by de- feating Melrose i to o. Co-Captains Don Dewhurst and Dave MacDonald played a grand style of hockey; and through their leadership, gave the entire squad the will to win. Other seniors on the team were Bill Buckley Ken Gelineau, Bill McGloughlin, Duane O ' Doherty, Leonard Moore, Robert Martin, and Dave Sprague. Crowded Sticks The 1946 edition of the Sttoneham High School field hockey team, capably coached by Mrs. Lawson and admirably led by Co-Captains Joan Severance and Elaine Hodson, was worthy of wearing the blue and white. Although the record, as far as victories are concern- ed, was not outstanding, the girls never lost their sense of team work nor high spirit. The team climaxed the season with a thrilling 1-0 victory over Melrose. The senior members of the team were Joan Sever- ance, Elaine Hodson, Dot Cook, Nat Sinclair, Jean Mur- cell, Marjorie Marshall, Wilhelmine Barnett, Dotty Ma- honey, Jeanne Bertwell, and Mary Kelly.

In the first few league games, however, the team slowed down. Bob Wallace was one of the best all-around performers in the Middlesex League. Other seniors who played im- portant parts on the team were Chesley Corkum, Karl Craigie, William Joy, and Paul Canney. Oil the JZadcboard Enthusiasm ran high this year as always when the girls ' basketball season opened in January. Activity and fun held sway for the season.

Our clubs and organizations, such as the Blue and White Club and the Athletic Association work together in a friendly and cooperative way. In our cul- tural organizations we come to appreciate the place of fine music, art and literature. Through participation in our glee clubs, orchestra, and plays we emerge ready to take our places in a world of fine living. In all of these activities there is present an indis- pensable leadership: the guidance of our supervisors and counselors, the silent forces to whom we owe our success. To them we add our parents and friends, who have contributed so generously and enthusiastically to the Boosters Club. All these contribute to make school years the best years of our lives. 3n (Appreciation School years .... the best years of our lives! It is not, perhaps, until we reach our senior year that we appreciate the meaning of this. In Stoneham High, be- sides the all-important pursuing of academic achieve- ments, we are fortunate in being able to enjoy numer- ous activities. Our skilled and understanding coaches, advisers, and supervisors help us to derive from our sports, clubs, and organizations, the fullest amount of benefit. In our competitive athletics we may not always be top team, but the spirit of our teams and the comrade- ship developed are not to be measured by the games won [ 39 ] THE TATLER Established by the Class of 1947 Volume 10, No. 12 Stoneham, September 20, 1958 Five Cents OLD HIGH SCHOOL COLLAPSES ON EVE OF OPENING OF NEW SCHOOL The new high school, designed by Brown and McGloughlin, the outstanding Boston ar- chitects, and located at Pomeworth, Washing- ton, and Central Streets, covering an area of five acres, opened today with the enrollment of several hundred eager pupils. Modern, at- tractive class rooms, equipped with radio and television sets, ultramodern laboratories and shops, a theatre, and a fully equipped gymna- sium are the pride and joy of the pupils and faculty. New teachers this year include Miss Nat- alie Sinclair, Miss Lorraine Domingue, and Miss Patricia Baker. The gymnasium continues to be under the supervision of Coaches Bill Joy and Paul Canney.

A 1 Salera, Bouncer FELLSWAY EAST Like the old “one hoss shay”, the old high school building on Williams Street collapsed last evening about six o’clock, on the eve of the opening of the new million dollar high school. The gradual deterioration of the build- ing, it is thought, was hastened by the dis- astrous flood of Room 17 in 1946, the year of famous experiments in chemistry by the noto- rious Class of 1947. Busy souvenir hunters found in the debris many interesting reminders of the past activ- ities. Office bulletins were discovered in the bottom drawer of a teacher’s desk believed to have been at one time in the second floor front corner room. Perhaps some citizens will remember nostalgically the one below: SPECIAL BULLETIN To be read to all home rooms March 5, 1946. Yesterday, due to natural causes, a faulty faucet and a clogged sink in the chemistry laboratory caused a flood necessitating the evacuation of all pupils from the rooms below. The office feels that the 11C1 class with its hilarious laughter, showed lack of self re- straint in tossing pailsful of water into study halls below from the open windows. All juniors will re- port to a special assembly today during the third period. Another partially illegible note in a di- lapidated book referred sentimentally to the Junior Prom of the Class of 1947: Hey, La., you ’ll have to lend me ten bucks to pay for the tux. It got ripped down the back when I crawled under the car to put the battery back when it fell out. And wants her bobby pins back. She says she doesn ' t care if the car does fall apart with- out them. Doyoueverrememberwritingnoteslikethis ? ILLUSTRIOUS DOCTOR TO SPEAK Doctor Walter Johnson, head of the Mass.

Because of the long-range planning of the association, Spot Pond is now one of the chief recreational centers of this section. Swimming, boating, and aquatic sports are held there throughout the summer with Superintendent Donald Sisson in charge of the clubhouse. The board is also indirectly responsible for encouraging the building of the R.C.A. Building on Moore’s Heights. The housing shortage of the past few years was solved for our city when the board approved the erection of two large brick a- partment houses extending from Main to Sum- mer Streets. The association is likewise responsible for the four lane highway near the Cyclotron A- tomic Research Laboratory on Main Street.
