Stoneham High Seniors Presen SCHOOL DAYS STONEHAM HIGH SCHOOL, ISTONEHAM, MASSACHUSETTS To you, Mrs. Vera Lawson, teacher, coach, and friend whom we have known since our grade school days, we fondly dedicate our yearbook. We shall remember always your cheerful disposition, enthusiasm, and unfailing understanding. As physical education super- visor, you have stressed physical fitness, mental alertness, and social consciousness as requisites of good sportsmanship. For the countless hours you have devoted to us and for the inspiration you hove given, we wish to ex- press our sincere thanks by dedicating to you our 1950 Yearbook. DEDICI MRS. VERA LAWSON ATION ■R£LJ0T=?0 Our school days! For the Class of 1950, these days in Stoneham High School evoke memories of meeting and studying in the library . . . favorite subjects . . . town hall assemblies . . . Carnival Ball . . . and knowing everyone. May the turning of these pages brighten future days with recollection of days replete with youth- ful simplicity and lasting friendships. If five, ten, or fifteen years from now, this book affords pleasure, interest, and fond memories of classmates and teach- ers, then the purpose of this yearbook will be fully achieved. STONEHAM SCHOOLS VDL. I, NO. 1 PUBLISHED BY THE SCHDDL COMMITTEE STONEHAM, MASS. Faculty Meetings During the year the faculty have been carrying on a program of general school information, so that all teachers may become ac quainted with every phase of Stoneham Schools from first grade to twelfth year. This has included a demonstration of read- ing in the primary grades and an exhibit of arithmetic material. They have explained the place- ment of seniors in high school into regular employment and the guidance program. The entire social studies, commercial sub- jects, foreign languages, science, and English were considered. The special curricula in art, music, health, home economics, indus trial arts and audio visual aids were discussed. Those teachers who participated did an excellent job and a much better understand- ing of the school system has been accomplished. High School Band Th e High School Band will conclude its activities for the year with participation in the observances here on Memorial Day. High spots during the year have been the football games, Boston University High School Day, the Firemen’s Parade, and the Spring Concert. Band membership should in- crease next year. The group will not be as hard hit by gradua- tion as in previous years and benefit should begin to be felt from the grade school instru- mental program. It is planned to admit as members those who are now in junior high school and those newly entered pupils who have progressed sufficient- ly in their musical studies. Everett Hunt Retires Mr. Everett Hunt has served Stoneham as a selectman and was a School Committee mem- ber for many years. During the nine years that he was a select- man he worked for the new post office, the Border Road im- provement, the new Town Hall and served as chairman of the Better Housing Program. He has been a member of the School Committee for twelve years, and served as chairman for eleven years. He is an advo- cate of better schools and par- ticularly for a number of years has urged the citizens of Stone- ham to seriously consider a new senior high school building. He j was a member of the Building j Committee of the Robin Hood School. In retiring, the School Com- mittee feels that he will be a distinct loss although he assures them that he will continue to show his interest in all school activities. He has served the community of Stoneham well and deserves the appreciation and thanks of every citizen. Instrumental Music One of the projects undertak- Girls’ Glee Club, Gilda V. Wip- en by the music department this year was the organization of in- strumental instruction in the elementary grades. The instruc- tor of the wood wind and brass instruments for the elemen- tary grades is Mr. Paul Monaghan: for the junior high school, Mr. Victor Ferri; and the instructor of the stringed instruments in both the elemen- tary and junior high schools is Mr. Harold Sawyer. A concert was presented by the ele- mentary school children in May. Mr. Ferri and Mr. Sawyer’s groups entertained at the Par- ent-Teacher meeting on May 16. The annual Spring Concert of the high school music clubs was held on April the thirteenth at the Stoneham Town Hall Audi- torium with the following organ- izations participating: Band, Chester P. Jordan, Con- ductor; Orchestra, Rolland Tap- ley, Conductor; Boys’ Glee Club, Calvin K. Schraga, Director; ; perman. Supervisor of Music; Senior and Junior High School Choirs. For the second consecutive year the junior high school choir was represented at the Northeastern Massachusetts Mu- sic Festival held in Marblehead on .May fifth. Rolland Tapley, who brings to his work with the Stoneham High School Orchestra a thor- oughly professional approach, was proud indeed to introduce the newly acquired set of tym- pani at our Spring Concert. They were excellently handled by Rob- ert Simmons. These are the ma- chine kettle drums which are tuned by the feet of the per- former to actual notes of the scale. When asked to name a typical problem which faces the conduc- tor of such a group, Mr. Tapley surprised us with this answer: “That of getting the glamour Continued on Page Four PAGE TWO STGNEHAM SCHDDLS JUNE 1951 Stoneham Baseball 1951 Faced with the well nigh im- possible task of duplicating the star-studded record of last year’s Stoneham High team, the present edition of the DeTesomen have their hands full. Last year’s lea- gue champs presented their suc- cessors with but one returning veteran, Eddie Casey; the rest of the present squad had to be select- ed from a mediocre and youthful junior varsity nine. Accordingly, the present team, composed as it is of sophomores and juniors, presents a task of building for future seasons. A better than average junior varsity team this year, plus a junior high aggrega- tion that represents encouraging ninth grade potentials, a zeal and spirit that pervade all squads — these are the factors that promise bright skies on Stoneham’s future baseball hori- zon. S toneham Schools | Junior-Senior High Have Good Attendance School Enrollment The following is the attend- ance record during 1950-51 East School 95 percent Emerson School 94 percent North School 95 percent South School 93 percent Robin Hood School 94 percent Junior High School 96 percent Senior High School 96 percent Average 95 percent The children are to be con- gratulated on a record of 95 per cent attendance during the past year. According to the best possible figures there will be another in- crease of over 100 in the Stone- ham Junior-Senior High School next year. If this continues, the problem of looking after these increases will become more acute. In 1960 there will be at least 1600. The present high school building has a capacity of 750 and some kind of a build- ing program is needed to care for the future enrollment of Stoneham Schools. A phase of the School Health Program is the testing of ears. The pupils of grades 2 through 11 are tested in groups. The first grade pupils and those discovered to have defective hearing, after the group testing has been checked are then tested individually. Miss Viola Hathorne, the school nurse, is testing Paul Farrell in the picture shown above. Demand For Business Course Graduates Still High Don’t try to tell Stoneham High School girls that thirteen is unlucky! That’s the number of seniors from the business course already happily at work in desirable full-time positions, positions with starting salaries that average better than $30 a week. That is the proud record thus far for 1951 of the high school placement office under its capable director, Mrs. Mar- garet G. Garvin, but it should be no surprise. Last year, too, every qualified graduate was successfully placed. Such results are not an acci- dent. Repeatedly, now requests for girls come from business concerns which have previously employed graduates of 1950 and or funds for further education are not available, the opportu- nities of this course deserve seri- ous consideration. The business world i s constantly seeking skilled help and is prepared to pay for it. The work of the placement office, of course, neither begins nor ends when a girl gets a job. Much preliminary work in contacting business firms pro- vides a list of the jobs that will be available, and later on, tests and interviews are arranged. Once the girls start on the job, the school follows their progress very closely. As a result it is often possible to help employers adjust minor difficulties, and al- so to secure valuable informa- e arlier years. These calls reflect the continued confidence of em- ployers in the sound business training Stoneham girls receive. They reflect too their confidence in the judgment of the place- ment director. The simple truth is that there are more jobs for skilled gradu- ates than there are qualified candidates, according to Mrs. Garvin. This fact, she continues, has special significance for par- ents with children going into grade nine and about to choose a course of study. Certainly in cases where either the interest Training For Citizens S t 0 n eham’s Americanization class is conducted on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7-9 at the High School. Older per- sons and those unable to go to school evenings receive help at their homes on Thursday after- noons. The course begins on Oc- tober first and concludes on April first each year. The subjects taught are: 1. Study of the United States Government and its Constitu- tion. 2. Simple reading and writing for illiterates. 3. English construction for the advanced pupils. 4. Backgrounds of American History. 5. American way of life. Pupils are shown an occasion- al film — one which has to do with government study. Also, they are introduced to our Pub- lic Library and its privileges. Once a year the classes con- tion for further improving the training which the school offers. Although the work of the placement office deals principal- ly with students in the business course, it is not confined to this group. On several occasions stu- dents in both the college and general course have been suc- cessfully placed, and it is hoped to expand this service as time goes on. Part-time placement is also handled at the school, and increasingly townspeople have begun to call this office when they need help of this kind, as noted in the above picture of Leo Barbo, Shirley Ewing and Margaret Gavvin. Teachers Visit Homes Last fall the elementary teach- ers took over the job of visit- ing every home and taking a census of all boys and girls be- tween ages of five and eighteen years of age. This contact made it possible for parents to be- come better acquainted with the teachers and aided the School Committee in getting the cor- rect information for the state aid. duct an exhibition of treasures which they brought from their native countries. First and second papers are filled out, checked and mailed to the Naturalization Bureau. Everything is done to develop in these pupils the highest stan- dard of citizenship. Besides our own Stoneham foreign-bom, we have pupils from Woburn, Read- ing and Wakefield who pay tui- tion to get into this course. JUNE 1951 STDNEHAM SCHDDLS PAGE THREE Winter Carnival - 1951 Adult Education Stoneham takes great pride in the opportunity it offers adults to continue their education. It A leader in student member- ship, the Blue and White Club exemplifies school spirit with its aim of scholarship, loyalty, and sportsmanship. Besides the Boy’s Glee Club and the Blue and White Scholarship, it sponsors the Win- is the only town in this vicinity which maintains an evening school and makes it possible, through the payment of a small fee, to have non-residents take advantage of its eiducational courses. The school is in session from Oct. 1 until the end of March and meets Monday and Thurs- day evenings. An enthusiastic class of 64 members received certificates this year in either shorthand, typewriting, English, or sewing. As part of the closing exercises, the sewing class presented a fashion show, demonstrating the work that was done. The sew- ing teachers served as commen- tators in giving details of com- parative costs, modern methods, etc. Students in the commercial subjects were presented certifi- cates not only for the comple- tion of the prescribed courses but also some received awards for special work in shorthand and typewriting. These special awards were for eligibility for membership in the Order of Gregg Artists or for artistic or speed typewriting offered by the Credentials Department of the Gregg Publishing Company. It is commendable to note that the work for these special assign- ments was done outside of class hours since the class schedule does not allow for extra work of this nature. Because there is no age limit or educational requisite for those who wish to enroll, the members range from those who were unable to graduate from ' high school to those with col- lege degrees who wish to take refresher or new courses. This means the courses must be made flexible in order to meet the needs of all students. However, the requirements are stringent enough to make pupils feel a sense of accomplishment when ter Carnival, a fun filled week of hockey, skating races, skiing and basketball, climaxed by the coro- nation of the king and queen at the spectacular Carnival Ball. This 1951 version of the glitter- ing spectacle featured a winter wonderland motif. A spectacular series of acts and skits — featuring such talented performers as John Burr and John McLaughlin in “The Spaniard That Blighted My Life,” and the Junior High group in “Frosty the Snowman,” — was presided over by beautious queen Ann MacLean and popular king Richard Shurtleff. they complete the course or courses satisfactorily. In order to offer a flexible course and at the same time maintain high standards, this means a great deal of extra and individu- al work must be done by the teachers. The teachers ac- cept this as a challenge and feel that it is a joy to teach students who attend from choice and ' who are eager to learn. This attitude on the part of the students inspires the teachers to give their best because they feel their efforts yield commensurate returns. Writing Committee Education is in the process of change and development. Every scientific study shows that man- uscript writing is the most suit- able for the child’s early writ- ten expression. It is now used in the vast majority of the cities of our country. A writing committee consist- ing of Misses Irene Bagley, Jo- aquina Malva, Louise Wood, Es- ther Melkonian, Marguerite Ver- rill, and Ruth Gerrish, chairman, was appointed September, 1951 by Miss Alice E. Fernow, Ele- mentary Supervisor, to study the writing situation in the Stone- ham Schools and to compare the results of cursive and manu- script writing. This committee has come to the conclusion that manuscript writing is best suit- ed to the muscular development of both hand and eyes in the primary grades. Manuscript writing is much simpler than cursive because letters are easi- ly formed, using only straight lines, circles and curves. The familiar symbols which the child sees every day in his •reader are the symbols which he sees when he writes. A dou- 1 ble set of symbols is confusing to the child and difficult to re- member. Manuscript writing is accurate, neat and legible. In manuscript basic handwriting the transition from unjoined to joined writing is accomplished without confusion. Many courses of study have been compiled to develop the manuscript type of writing. This committee has met month- ly and after listening to an ex- pert from each company stress the good points of his system of manuscript writing, the com- mittee has agreed that the books School Costs In Stoneham In a study made by Superin- tendent Raymond C. Burdick out of twenty-five towns in Massa- chusetts with populations be- tween 10,000 and 20,000, Stone- ham’s educational cost in 1950 was very low — $173.63 per pu- pil. Eighteen schools had a high- er cost and the average cost was $187.19 while the state’s average was $203.94. Another in- dication that Stoneham is low in cost is that only 31c of the town tax dollar is spent on schools and the average 38c is spent by these same towns. According to a study of sal- aries in these towns, Stoneham had an average of $3032 per year and the towns’ average was $3129. This indicates that the salary schedule is about av- erage with other comparable communities. On the other hand a further analysis shows the per pu- pil wealth (assessed valuation) is higher than the average of these towns. Stoneham has $9778 per pupil while the average is $9560. In other words, Stoneham can afford a better educational program including kinderga ' rt- ens and industrial arts, if the tax payers are willing to pay for it. Certainly there is need for improving the maintenance of the Junior-Senior High School, by Stone and Smalley, published by Charles Scribners’ Sons, will benefit the Stoneham Schools to a greater degree than any other system. The committee recommends that manuscript writing be adopted in grade one in the Stoneham Schools starting Sep- tember, 1951. Cursive writing will be introduced in the second half of the second grade instead of in the beginning of the first grade. Open House During the year every school had had at least one “Parent Night.” Picture shows a science class in high school in which each parent attends the classes of their children. Parents have shown much interest in meeting the teachers and discussing the work of their children. School exhibits and special programs were also carried on in the elementary schools. When the parent shows interest in the school system, the children will certainly do a better job.

Democracy At Work October is election month at Stoneham High, a month filled with the bustle and enthusiasm of colorful political campaigns as classes go to the polls to choose their leaders. The whole procedure under Student Coun- c i 1 direction duplicates that which adults know, with nomi- nation papers, campaign ora- tory, and the secret ballot. This is but one of many Stu- dent Council contributions to making democracy work at the local school. Representatives elected from all home rooms and school organizations make it an effective voice of the stu- dents. Here school-wide prob- lems are considered; here too adjustments and solutions often follow. One striking example this year was Clean-Up Week, and its notable sequel. Litter and un- tidiness in the gym and about the grounds, largely the result of inadequate cafeteria facilities, have long been a problem, and the Student Council searched for ways to attack it. The result was Clean-Up Week, student-planned and stu- dent-operated. Cartoons and pos- ters dramatized the problem, and appeals by representatives for student co-operation paid off. Student monitors provided nec- essary supervision. 1 The improvement was very Interest in the revision of the arithmetic course of study in the elementary schools has spurred nearly all of the elementary teachers to enroll in a work- shop course in arithmetic taught by Mrs. Elizabeth Berglund of Lesley College during the latter half of this school year. The elementary teachers have met weekly to study recent trends in the teaching of arith- metic, to examine textbooks and courses of study in order to set up a new curriculum in this field, and to improve the arith- metic work in our schools. The new course which is be- ing developed by our elementary teachers will be initiated and carried out in the elementary grades during the oming school year. Participation in the arithmetic workshop has been of great val- ue to the teachers profession- ally and will guarantee a better arithmetic program for the ele- mentary pupils in the immedi- ate future.

Mrs. Vera Lawson, chairman of this group has been serving on the Physical Training Program for the State of Massachusetts. The committee is working on a general health program and is also planning a revised physical education program for next year. noticeable, best of all, the situa- tion continues to be much better. This is but one example of de- mocracy at work. It can be mul- tiplied many times over, both in class situations and extra-cur- ricular groups. Safety Education The Stoneham Public Schools have been made safety-minded during the past year. Through the co-operation of the Police Department, a program of saf- ety patrols has been organized. Pupils from grades five and six serve as patrol leaders in the elementary sbhools. As a result children are being taught to make the playgrounds and the crossing of streets safer. Different patrol leaders are se- lected every semester, thus de- mocracy is made to work in con- nection with the safety program. In the High School a regular safety drivers’ program will be offered in the fall under the guidance of Principal William N. Nadeau. Mr. Roger Lamson will spend a part of his time as teacher in the drivers’ train- ing course next year. A car h a s been obtained through the co-operation of the American Automobile Associa- tion and Lane’s Pontiac Com- pany of Stoneham. The plan will provide actual driving ex- perience to juniors and seniors over sixteen years of age who want to learn to drive an auto- mobile. Superintendent Charles E. Varney We, the class of 1950, regretfully acknowledge the retirement of our superintendent. For twenty-one years he has been a faithful and enthusiastic administrator of school affairs. He has worked assiduously to make our schools the equal of any in the state in scholastic standards and in citizenship. We shall miss his friendly visits to our school and his active interest in all our affairs. At this time on behalf of our school and our community, we offer him our humble thanks and extend to him our best wishes for happiness through the years ahead. SUPERINTENDENT CHARLES E.

The president of each homeroom and all class officers in the high school comprise the present membership. These members represent the student body and act upon ideas suggested by pupils of the school. During the past three years, the Student Council has sponsored a program of town hall assemblies, both enjoyable and educational, for the junior and senior high school. The first program The General Motors ' " Preview of Progress, " dealing with the modern miracles of science and presented dynamically by two representatives from General Motors Corporation, held the audience spell- bound. On November 16, Hum and Strum, popular radio and television per- formers, presented a program of songs with refreshing versatility. On December 9, Russell Curry presented " It ' s a Date " , in which he dem- onstrated in a dramatic way, manners for moderns. " Musical Portraits " , a unique program of opera scenes, folic songs, and special arrangements given by a trio of talanted young artists later in the year delighted the audience. GIRLS ' GLEE CLUB Musical Motes The band, the orchestra, and the glee club have always been popular activities at Stoneham High School. Under the supervision ol Mrs. Gilda Wipperman, the combined musical organizations have presented extremely successlul programs throughout the year. Directed by Mrs. Wipperman and the newly appointed Mr. Calvin Schraga, the girls ' and boys ' glee club have done excellent work. Their performance at the Winter Carnival, the Spring Concert, Memorial Day exercises, and graduation was a credit to the direc- tors. The orchestra, conducted by talented Mr. Ronald Tapley, played at the Boston Spelling Bee and the Spring Concert. The school band, under the capable leadership of Mr. Chester Jordan, was in demand for such school ac- tivities as rallies, football games, and the Spring Concert. Altogether we have good reason for being proud of our musical clubs. BOYS ' GLEE CLUB ORCHESTRA First Row: L. Konapacka, B. Fleet, N. Larange, S. Jenkins, N. Shurtleff, P. Rouillard, H.

Walker Sports Calendar In August some sixty boys from our high school reported for the first football practice to Coach DeTeso and two able assistants, Gene Rose and Shooter Haines. After our season began, we lost to powerful Concord but bounc- ed back against Ipswich and rival Lexington. We found Winchester and Punchard our tough- est foes of the season. The other games were close, but most colorful was the Thanksgiving game against Reading. Both teams were score- less with less than five minutes left in the game; then the smooth Reading team, who had knocked off Winchester, Woburn and some other powers, finally found range with two quick scores. With the end of the football season, the team divided, some going to the basketball court and others to the hockey rink. The bas- ketball team with coach Elerin started off with a bang, winning six straight, including unbeat- able Belmont. This ended Belmont ' s long win- ning streak (one of the longest streaks in Mid- dlesex League history) over Stoneham. The record attendance at each game proved the quality of our team ' s playing. The hockey team coached by " Doc Gor- don, invaded the Boston Arena to start the season with highly favored Melrose. After three hard-fought periods, Melrose emerged the winner by one goal. The Belmo nt game was the most exciting. Belmont led by one with less than two minutes to play, when we exploded with four goals to win nine to six. We found Arlington the hardest team in the wild race for the play-offs. Medford, Melrose, and Rindge also had their best teams in cur- rent years. The girls coached by Mrs. Vera Lawson had a good season in field hockey playing a hard schedule and winning their share of games. The basketball tournament was one of the best with record attendance and close games. The baseball team under Coach DeTeso played one of the stiffest schedules in recent years, with almost every team in the league a potential powerhouse.

Mustone Irving Rohrbacher Frank Sousa J. Truman Whittemore Raymond W. Iverson Kenneth Leland Shirley E. Wills Class Mistory " Gee, Betty, isn ' t it wonderful to see every- body again! It almost seems like a dream, doesn ' t it? " I said as Betty and I talked with old friends we hadn ' t been with since gradu- ation. We were attending our first five-year banquet and reunion held at the familiar and ever popular Bear Hill Country Club, right where we had held our senior banquet. Of course, renewing old acquaintances brought back many happy memories. We were completely enjoying this get-together, discussing our high school activities and the good times we had had together. Our thoughts rapidly turned back to 1946, our freshman year in high school. Then we had thought we were rather grown up, but we soon realized that we weren ' t very important at the A. A. Dance; for we had to leave at ten o ' clock. I turned to Jackie Myles, who was trying to remember our class officers for that year. " I know, " she said, while everyone seemed to be talking at the same time. From the " buzz- ing " , I finally gathered that Barbara Sprott had been president; John Farrell, vice-presi- dent; Jane Hoyt, secretary; Betty Landry, trea- surer. and Joan Christie, chairman of the social committee. " Don ' t you remember, " asked Agnes Barney, " how shy we felt at our first dances, ' The Mardi Gras ' and ' The Maytime Hop ' ? The sweet little girls were on one side of the gym and the bashful boys on the other. This shyness was suddenly overcome when refresh- ments were served, though. " Nancy Barnstead, beautiful as ever, said, " But in our sophomore year we really entered high school activities. Let ' s see — I think Ken- neth Leland, Donald Moreira, and Americo Fionda were our stars on the football team that year. Remember our first real dance at Christ- mas, too! " During our school days, there was always some " eager beaver " hurrying around taking either movies or snaps. When we discovered that one of these had brought some films to the banquet, we all wanted to see them. We set- tled down before the movie screen to see our- selves back in " the good old days " . First, we saw the class officers as they had looked as sophomores. We laughed as we remembered how we had rushed around with nomination papers and cast our ballots. There they were on the screen; Edward Pinato, presi- dent; Betty Landry, vice-president; Shirley Ew- ing, secretary; Joan Christie, treasurer; and Joan Howard and Charles Crocetti, co-chair- men of the social committee. Being first in several things, our class had organized an assembly program that year. Edward Pinato came onto the screen next in- troducing Miss Spinney, who had returned that fall from serving in the WAC. She spoke to us about her numer ous experiences. The Winter Carnival Ball was always a grand event on the school calender. Next there flashed across the screen a shot of Joan Christie, our only attendant in the royal court. Soon came the pictures of the Girls ' Basket- ball Tournament. As the end of March drew near, we had prepared for our first tournament. There before us we now saw Shirley Lord and Lorraine Haley who could make baskets from any position on the floor. Despite their skill, however, the sophomores lost to the juniors. Another first to our credit was the annual Sophomore-Junior Drama Night which was or- ganized under Mr. Ortman ' s direction. How we chuckled as we saw the scenes from " Are We Dressing " , a comedy featuring Leona Zibell, Nancy Barnstead, and John Wilson. " Club Ten " then came to the screen. The gym seemed to be transformed into a really swanky night club as Donald Moreira and Daniel Viera, our singing waiters, flashed by. The next moment Tommy Morin was springing from the diving board at Canobie Lake. These were pictures of our class outing the last of June. What fun we had that day! At the end of the first reel everybody began to chatter. Charlotte Dike reminded me that as juniors we had elected John Wilson as presi- dent. Adeline Mustone remembered that the field hockey girls were terrific that fall, for the first team had come through the season un- defeated. John Burns, who was near us, put in a good word for the football team. " There was plenty of spirit on that team " , John said. " Ar- thur Beane, Robert Leland, and John Maffeo were stars for S. H. S. Remember? " " Will you ever forget the Winter Carnival Ball that year? " asked Shirley Ewing, who had been our only representative in the royal pro- cession. " And I can see Rudolph Minghella roller skating across the stage in our junior play. ' High School Daze ' , can ' t you? " laughed Mary Henderson. " I remember, " 1 said, " that the Spring Con- cert was a great success with the glee clubs, organ, and orchestra giving a beautiful rendi- tion of ' Victor Herbert ' s Medley ' . " " Arthur Beane and Joan Howard were the junior marshals at graduation, weren ' t they? " Claire Laughlin asked. " ' Will you ever forget the wonderful feeling we had when we were seniors at last, and tak- ing part in school activities for our last year? " asked Joan Costello. " Frank Sousa was elected to the presidency. The other officers were vice- president, Claire Laughlin; secretary, Shirley Ewing; treasurer, Jane Hoyt; and co-chairman of the social committee, Joan Christie and Bar- bara Sprott. " " Mr. DeTeso was a new, but e xtremely popular addition to the faculty that year, " Frank Sousa added. " He took over the position of football coach and really had the fellows on their toes. Our football team, captained by Richard Burns and Americo Fionda, had a com- paratively successful season. The staunch senior players were Rudolph Minghella, John Maffeo, Raymond McLaughlin, Damion Hurl- burt, William Roberts, and I. " Although we were still in the mood to talk, we were asked to be seated again, in order that a short film highlighting our senior year might be shown. We all clapped as we caught the first glimpse of Adeline Mustone dribbling down the hockey field for a goal against Malden. Our new gym teacher. Miss James, with a big smile on her face, was standing at the edge of the field. The hockey pictures reminded me of the day when, through an error in arrange- ments, we went down to Swampscott to play and the Swampscott team came to Stoneham. Was somebody ' s face red! The Reading Thanksgiving game flashed on the screen next. We started out in the lead, but Reading overtook us. There was Richard Burns running out for a long pass he miss- ed! Right out in front were the cheerleaders, captained by Jane Hoyt. Each was wearing a yellow chrysanthemum, the gift of Mr. Beane. How natural it was to see the senior cheer- leaders, — Charlotte Dike, June Belfonte, Pat- ricia Griffin, Shirley Ewing, and Jeanne Le- Blanc. Soon we were watching the success- ful sports ' dance given by the cheerleadeis, football, and field hockey team on Thanksgiv- ing night. There were flashes of the gym dec- orated with harvest colors and of the many couples dancing gayly. Cheers went up as we saw shots of Cap- tain Goudey making a basket in the famous Belmont basketball game and of Charlie John- son, Douglas Morello, Robert Leland, Ronald Woods, Alfred Minghella, and Edward Pinato posing after the game. In a flash, John Farrell went down the ice to make a goal for Stoneham. Another cheer went up for the hockey team that held its own that season and tied for third place in the G. B. I. League. Pictures of Paul Norden, a three time all-star player, and of John Burns and Richard Burns, all-stars too, filled us with pride. When the film ended, the class talent show began. First, the cast of our senior play " One Foot in Heaven " appeared on the stage in cos- tume and gave us selected scenes from the play. Danny, as the little brat " Georgie, " was called back three times. Then Shirley Ewing, Betty Landry, and Nancy Barnstead came out and sang as they used to at our class dances. All of a sudden a character in a checked suit appeared and started singing, " When You ' re All Dolled Up " . Of course it was Rudy Min- ghella who brought the house down as he had done the night of the Carnival Ball in 1950. As the applause ended, 1 went over to talk with Joan Christie and Paul Norden, who had been our king and queen. They were tellina how frightened they had been marching down the aisles and keeping in step all the way to the throne. That coronation will always stand out as the most beautiful event in our senior year. " Yes, " said Margaret, " but didn ' t we en- joy ' Cuoid ' s Court ' , our Valentine dance, where we had all the floating balloons? " Just then someone started the recorder. The music sounded familiar, but it wasn ' t until Nancy White asked, " Isn ' t that the glee club singing at our last Spring Concert? " that I realized it was a recording that had been made. It was really good. " One of the most remembered and popu- lar events was our Junior-Senior Prom, " Joan Olson contributed. " Do you remember our busy preparations for graduation? " asked Jack Winston. " The baccalaureate services, the banquet, and fi- nally araduation, the day we had anticipated for so long! Reluctantly we left good friends and the old high school. These last five years have made us appreciate more than ever how much we owe Stoneham High School. " As the clock struck twelve we all rose and sang " Auld Lang Syne " . Then we promised that although our first reunion had come to on end, we would meet again at other pleasant class reunions.
