l H. ' ( JUN 2 5 NEW LOOK STONEHAM, MASSACHUSETTS 3 NINETEENTH EDITION BUILDING LAYOUT A • NEW . LOOK . MADE • POSSIBLE 4 i DEDICATION As we of the Class of 1956 con- sider that our high school careers ore drawing to a close, it is only natural that our thoughts are deeply influenced by the magnificent high school made available to us. For we realize that our school is not only built of steel, mortar, I and tile but also includes our parents ' I faith and hopes in us and the young i people who will follow us. We recognize, too, that this faith and hope required very real sacrifices made in our behalf. Yet these important sacrifices . which have enabled us to be the proud first graduating class of the " new " Stoneham High School are a very small part of the day-in, day-out sacrifice and devotion which we have received from our parents. We have known throughout all our lives that we have been the recipi- ents of material and spiritual support in unending measure from two people who ask comparatively little in return. As a token of our appreciation we, the Class of 1956, are proud to offer this small salute to our mothers and fathers and respectfully dedicate this yearbook to them. i 1 r 5, ' ' ' n Sc A - Orc .. th,Q .

What is not new, however, is the tradition of dedicated teaching which we and all other classes have enjoyed at Stoneham High. 8 9 ADM N I S Mrs. Gargano, Grace Harrison and Mr. Nadeau seem engrossed in school problems. ) T R A T I O N it inspires and guides us Vice Principal Wendell Horton, Principal William Nadeau, and Superintendent C. Newton Heath work together to insure the smooth running of our beautiful new high school. Efficient executive secretary, Mrs. Antoinette Gargano, and Grace Harrison, student clerk, enjoy all the latest equipment in the main office. 1 1 They hold aloft the LIBRARY Shelves of knowledge line the wolls of our new building. Under the kindly guidance of Miss Miriam Marsh, unlimit- ed opportunities for educational ad- vancement are offered to every boy and girl. FACULTY MUSIC Our glee clubs under the able direction of Mrs. Gilda Wipperman and Mr. Alfred Todaro provide music for many outstanding occasions such as Carnival Ball and the Spring Concert. ART With graciousness and a charming smile Mrs. Eleanor Boker, our art director, inspires and guides her pupils in many types of art work. The corridors of our new school show much evidence of their talent and imagina- tion. 12 flame of knowledge ENGLISH The study of our native tongue is a requirement for all students. Mrs. Vera Curley, Mrs. Sadie Marshall, Mrs. Patricia Vann and .Mr. John Downs place special em- phasis on those phases of English which will prove most : helpful to each class. i- SOCIAL STUDIES LANGUAGES Many pleasant hours ere spent in the foreign language classes under the patient instruction of Miss Lydia Risi and Mrs. Gertrude Cariello. Knowledge of these lang- uages enriches our everyday life. Social studies are of vital importance in the school cur- riculum. Through the study of these problems students become better prepared to take their places as respon- sible citizens. These classes are under the capable direc- tion of Mr. Anthony DeTeso, Mr. Timothy Higgins, Miss Mary Hartwell, and Mr. Roger Lomson. 13 BUSINESS Linder the instruction of Mrs. Margaret Garvin, Mr. Clark Richardson, Miss Naomi Kaplan and Miss Anna Regish, pupils get a sound background in commercial subjects which becomes invaluable in the business world. MATHEMATICS We discover a world of figures, numbers and unknowns with the aid of Mr. Elba Carrier and Mr. Chester Jordan. ht our c a n d I e s SCIENCE Our new and well-equipped science lab makes it easier to understand the mysteries and fascinating facts of science which are brought to light under the able direc- tion of Mr. William Miller and Mr. Robert Millett. 14 HOME ECONOMICS With all the comforts of a modern home available, it is fun learning cooking, sewing and home management under the supervision of Miss Gracey Magrath. SHOP Under the guidance of Mr. Walter Her- rick and Mr. John Vozella, boys are taught useful and practical crafts which they can apply to a future trade. torches PHYSICAL EDUCATION Our most popular subject is even more popular this year with all the new gym equipment and athletic facilities. Mr. Karl Elerin instructs the boys, and Mrs. Vera Lawson directs the girls. 15 NEW LOOK t tb eniord Even with the excitement of college boards, basketball season and senior play, the seniors have time to relax on the steps overlooking our new patio and enjoy good fellowship. " Who says that ' Christian Dior Look ' can ' t be equal- led? " say Judy Barnstead and Ann Hart as they ad- mire Carol Riberdy ' s new outfit. Today ' s doodlers; tomorrow ' s Rembrandts. Diane Leith, Judy D ' Avolio, David Roberts and Barbara Landry display their talents. The skeleton, o new addition to our biology equipment, is studied by Cynthia Adorns, Jerry Zoltmon and Ann Landry. Allan Brown, Diane McCullough and David Lamprey discover a new Bookkeeping is so easy — after Mrs. world, that of microscopic life. Gorvin explains it. Gene Cataldo, Suzanne Steele and Dan Bova all find humor even in a geometric figure. 18 Senior girls con type with speed and accuracy. Grace Harrison, Joan Gilmortin, Carol Connearny, Norma Richardson and Mary Raf- ferty prove this as Mr. Clark Rich- ardson times their speed. Modern equipment, an able teacher in Mr. Walter Herrick, and three such interested students as George Shultz, Bette Mitchell and Richard Wile provide the makings of a progressive mechanical drawing class. There ' s no denying that our senior shorthand students are up to par. Ruth Stone tests the ability of George Hoye and Judith Corbett as she dictates a shorthand lesson. Physics may be a mystery to most of us, but to Wayne Maglione, Ronald Berry, David Stinson and Robert Kenson it ' s merely an- other phase of their scientific studies. Under the careful eye of Mr. Roger Lamson, David Nevins, Denise Donovan, Constance Kustra, David Lamprey, Jon La Salle and Margaret Meenan learn safety on the high- way. 19 Panel discussions with an odded touch of humor ore but o port of the excellent Eng- lish program offered to us. Borboro Conroy, Michael Basile, Fanchita Gonzoles-Bottle and Patricia Coughlin enjoy o profitable discussion. One! Two! Three! Four! The boys do their setting up exercises under the watfhful eyes of Mr. Elerin. 20 In the spacious gynn, the girls demonstrate one of the mony modern dance techniques. 21 T SENIOR HONORS MacDONALD MEDALS For scholarship, character, and ood influence in the school Carol Connearney Robert Kenson Class History Norma Bastow, Suzanne Steele Graduation Address Paul Farrell PRELIMINARY HONOR GROUP (B Average or Higher for Four Years) Norma A.

I settled back in my chair, took a deep breath, and gave my full at- tention. Then as a dog perks his ears when he hears the call of his master, I stirred, leaned forward, gasped, and couldn ' t believe what I had heard. What did I hear? I heard Mr. Horton say, " Miss Moran — Patricia Savard. " After having typed for about five minutes one day, I looked up, and much to my embarrassment I discovered that I had been typing without any paper in the type- writer. This all came about because of my excitement over just learning that I had made the cheering squad. — Joan Gilmartin. Our field hockey team had a very successful year with only one loss. The biggest victory was when Stoneham beat Winchester three to one for the first time in twenty years. There was so much screaming and cheering that it ' s a wonder the walls of the chartered bus didn ' t " give way. " As a reward the team was treated to a movie by Mrs. Lawson. — Joanne Tiberio. Ever since the eighth grode when I first made the Major- ette Squad, my greatest desire was to be captain in my senior year. Naturally I had no idea it would ever come true, but I kept on hoping. When the squad actually elected me for " 56, " I was the happiest girl in town. The fun and memories of leading the band in my new white uniform will last a lifetime. — Dian Perrins. It was a faotball Jamboree. Everything was running smoothly when it was the majorettes ' turn to perform. We were supposed to do a dance which we had done perfectly many times, but something happened. Every- one seemed to have two left feet. I was so embarrasse’d I couldn ' t dance a step. — Judy Hertach. As I was sitting in English class, the announcement came over the P.A. saying that I had won the Red Feather Speaking Contest. I couldn ' t believe my ears, at first. Then suddenly realizing the fact, my emotions became mixed. I was elated and honored. I will never forget rep- resenting my school. — Beth Ruttenberg. I ' ll never forget the Danvers game when I thought I was an embryonic backfield star. It was in a crucial moment of the second quarter. Danvers had the ball. I found a small opening in the line, crashed through and grabbed what I thought was the ball. With heroic visions of a touchdown I assembled myself to run when, much to my dismay, I found I was clutching the quarterback ' s head. — Richard Radford. The curtoin slowly opened and the spotlights that shone from above blinded me momentarily. In a minute I was aware of the fact that this was the big night, the night for which we hod all been waiting. " Curtain Going Up, " the Senior Play of the class of ' 56, wos in progress, and I was on the stage with hundreds of eyes on me waiting for me to say my lines. This was certainly " a moment to remember.

Not new, but typical of Blue and White teams al- ways, are the gallant efforts and thrilling mo- ments provided by our athletes as they do battle with rival schools. Typical, too, is the loyal sup- port of the student body as our favorites seek new glory for our Alma Mater.

Th ere are some defeats more triumphant than j FOOTBALL Good blocking helps Fran Hort to moke o first down. The S. H. S. Eleven despite a rainy season managed to play seven of its nine scheduled games. Led by co-cap- tains Al and Dennnis Symes, the team was always on the field with spirit and hustle but just lacked the power to put the ball across the goal line. Teams like Newbury- port and Swampscott were played for the first and last time as the Stoneham Blue and White will be playing in the newly formed Middlesex League next year. Although the season was an unsuccessful one, the boys played like true sportsmen and upheld the traditions of Stoneham High. Dennis Symes scores os “Butch " Farrell and Bill McDermott give a helping hand. A pass from Fran Hart to Ralph Powers nets twenty-five yards. i 44 Dennis, the menace to Stoneham ' s foes, mokes a first down. victories The pass is blocked. Dick Powers makes a first down as Eddie Murrin paves the way. A goal-line stand is made by Bob Noyes, Dennis Symes and Eddie Eramo. Left to right: S. McCarthy, C. Kustro, B. Mitchell, C, Bartlett, J.

With new uniforms and a new school the cheer- leaders injected new spirit into crowds at rallies os well os football, basketball and hockey games. Their enthusiasm was never dampened as they led cheers for their teams in all kinds of weather. Strains of “You ' ve got to win boys " were heard from “Rec. " during football season. In our new gym loyal basketball fans urged the team to “Shoot, score, shoot some more. " The Areng shook as hockey fans cheered, “Come on Stoneham, get up and go. " Beauty at its best — 46 MAJORETTES The majorettes in their blue and white uniforms were a colorful sight during the football season, strutting and twirling on the field, rain or shine, to the rhythm of the music played by the high school band. Their many routines and " Bonnie Lassie " will long be remembered by those on the squad and the many spectators who loyally attended our games. Leff to right: J. Hertach, C. McNeil, B. Bates, D.

Dion Perrins leads the gay procession. This year ' s field hockey season began with a thrill we ' ll not soon forget. Stone- ham scored a two to one victory over Winchester, which broke the twenty years jinx of Stoneham ' s never beating Win- chester. Our capable captains, Rosalie Zaccone and Bette Mitchell, were the scorers. The rest of the season was marked by bad weather which caused several postponements, and finally a game with Woburn was cancelled. All in all, we feel we had a successful year. Tension is high os Patty Patterson and Nancy Gummow battle for the ball. JUNIOR VARSITY First row, left to right: A. Mauceri, B. Chambers, J. Hines, N. Rich- ardson, N. Jandris, P .McDermott, M.

" Testa was backed by Jackie Mullen, Ken Sweet, Eddie Murrin, Don Molonson, and Phil Davis. Although the record for this year was not too impressive as far as scores are con- cerned, the boys showed good spirit, and Coach Elerin looks forward to much promising material for next year.

Good try, Alby! our teams ' encounters We were robbed! Under the coaching of Bob Millett, Stone- ham had two fast, hustling lines with a top- notch goalie, Tom Treacy. Co-captain Fran Hart was one of the top scorers in the league with Alby and Dennie Symes right behind him. The second line was said to be one of the best in the league with Co-captain Butch Farrell, Bob Noyes and Ted Peabody. Lending good support around our goal were Ronnie Gummow and Billy McDermott, our defensemen. Scrimmage around the enemy net. Nice catch! BASEBALL Coach DeTeso began practicing his veter- ans in our new gym as early as March. This year ' s squad was led by Co-Captains Bill McDonough and Harry Miller. Other veterans were Fionda, Farrell, Gummow, Fitzgerald, Roberts, D. Symes, Mullen and Bishop. The season opened with traditional Melrose on April 10, and a good season was enjoyed by the team.

VERSATILITY AND HARMONY I i i We all have enjoyed the fine performances given by our musical clubs, but there is much more work than meets the eye. Hours of laborious practice go into the work of these groups which hove brought honor and credit to our school. Richard Radford directs the Boys ' Glee Club as Patricia Woods accom- panies them in the music room. MASTERS OF MUSIC The Girls ' Glee Club, under the able supervision of Mrs. Gildo Wippermon, enjoy singing around the new organ which was the gift of the alumni. J. MacDonold, R. Radford, R. Wile, and R. Gedney make up our talented Boys ' Quartet. Under the direction of Mrs. Wippermon, Mr. Todoro and Mr. Topley, our school has presented excellent musical programs on many occasions. Some of these in- clude the Carnival Ball, Massachusetts All-State-Festival at Symphony Hall, Northeastern Massachusetts Music Festi- val, Spring Concert, Memorial Day Exer- cises, Graduation Exercises and P. T. A. meetings. The Girls ' Octet and the Boys ' Quartet gave Christmas programs at the New England Sanitarium, the Pond View Nurs- ing Home and the Rotary Club. These students have spread good cheer and given much pleasure to others. Stoneham High is justly proud of them. The Girls ' Octet, consisting of S. Bom- berg, L. Crow, C. Dukeshire, D. French, S.
