"Bob" belongs to the Olds- mobile Club and can., often be seen driving his own contribution around Stonington. He is rather fond of mu- sic, and his favorite song was pop- ular late in the spring of 1929, at which time he cou-ld be heard -mak- ing himself a general nuisance by "attempting" to sing it. Despite all these detrimental facts We are sure Bob will be as great a success in later life as he has been so far. Pnsfe 12 STONINGTON HIGH' SFI-IOOL YFEAII BOOIC. 1930 -f aw VBI4 . Gertrude K.

STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK. 1930 Page 27 'M - new CLASS HISTORY Gladys Cranston We look upon the year 1927 and find it marked by a momentous event-the non-stop trans-At-, lantic fiight of Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh. But if we look back only a few months more we find another notable event-notable even though the world at large has neglected to record it-the en- trance of this class in the autumn of 1926 into Stonington High School. Even the students and teachers of th-e High School did not realize the worth of this class at first-we were just another group of timid Fresh- men to be endured until we became accustomed to the regime of Stonington High School. But gradually their attitude of forbearance was changed, they began to realize the rare material in this class with which they had to deal. As proof of our ability we amazed the whole school by presenting an all original program in Assembly. Joseph Hoxsie delivered a poem which he composed and which revealed talent unusual in one so young. Norman Smith also rendered a very amendable selection. By our Sophomore social we again proved our excellence. As hosts and hostesses we provided unique entertainment for old and young. Then, too, before the end of our Sophomore year how thrilled we were when we discovered that we had budding athletes in our class. The most noted being Godomsky, Smith and Spellman with Made- line Harper and Ramona Hanks ably representing the girls on the basketball court. In our third year we were popularly known as the "conscientious Juniors" and soon proved our- selves worthy of the name when a few of the class were selected by the faculty, according to merit in studies, to be elected by the school as assistant editors of the Brown and White staff. VN Page 28 STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 The final returns of the election revealed the fol- lowing results: Assistant Editor-in-Chief .,ee,r Robert Spellman Assistant Business Managerf,,Joseph Hoxsie Assistant Literary Editor vee,re Gladys Cranston The others chosen from our class Were: Joseph Gordon Joseph Conti Merrill Foote Ramona Hanks Gwendolyn Morgan Frances Shea Ruth Monjo Thomas Hughes The Junior Prom was another of our social suc- cesses. Through the splendid co-operation of the class and committee We were successful in enter- taining an unusually large number of guests. 3659 And now, let me tell you about our Senior year, the most glorious of all! We were Seniors at last and to use a modernistic term, what a grand and glorious feeling! We reached great fame, intellectually and ath- letically. Many of the class were on the honor roll and many more received honorable mention, a record such as few classes can boast. Our boys led the football team to victory many times, and as for baseball, We feel confident that we have promise of a second Babe Ruth in Godomsky. So We come to the end of the history of our four years together. Surely no class could have greater hopes for success as it goes forth to solve Whatever problems life may hold in store. STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 Page 29 a - -- . .nw VB , ADDRESS T0 UNDERGRADUATES Members of the Undergraduate Body of Stonington High School: Because we, the class of 1930, have come to the end of our short journey through Stonington High School, we should like to leave with the under- graduate body, a few thoughts which we deem will prove of profit to them. To us these four years have sped by quickly, and we are now going out into the world where we shall make new friends and be confronted with new conditions of life. It is for us to succeed- for us who have established a firm foundation during our high school career. Underclassmen, we sincerely hope that you will heed the advice that we, who have benefited by four years of ex- perience, now give. First, I would say to the Freshmen: Choose as many subjects as possible in your Freshman year and in your first three? years thus leaving your Senior year free for the extra duties with which it will be filled. Also, more important-choose one course and stick to it throughout your high school career. Go out for athletics, make a name for yourself, for your class, and for your school. Sophomores, you will soon be Juniors. What is your goal? Are you working as diligently and as conscientously as you might? Have you learned that work and not play comes first and that con- centration is the first requirement of good schol- arship? If so, you will surely succeed. And now, Juniors, you are to take our place as leaders. Your task is to make Stonington High School a school to be proud of. You, as the Sen- ior class next Year, will have a high moral and intellectual standard to uphold. Remember, the underclassmen look up to you to determine what is right or wrong. Undergraduates, strive for your school. Be honest, courteous, and show good sportsmanship at all times. Take pride in the appearance of Stonington High School so that it may always be recognized as a place of refinement and beauty. Lastly, I wish to extend to you one more bit of advice. In behalf of the class of 1930, let me impress upon you the fact that you should al- ways appreciate the effort of your principal and teachers to aid and co-operate with you in all your undertakings throughout your high school career. -Irene Elson.

They excelled in the athletic field due to the excellent athletes that this class is composed of. Among the athletes are Ed. Goy- ette, the lone four letter man, whose ability has won for him a name in all neighboring schools, then there is "Skip" Adams, the shining light from Stonington, who has shown his stuff in football, basketball and track, and with him can be mentioned the handsome boys, Newbury and Chevallier, also majoring in three sports. Kelly, the burly tackle, and Levanti and Collins, fast backfield men, and Patterson, the first sacker on the ball team, make up the rest of that athletic class. The girls cannot be slighted, for they too have some fine basketball players. Little Katherine Ferrie, who has run circles around many a guard, sank many a basket to bring victory to her team. "Nonnie" Delagrange, also from this same athletic class, performed in nice fash- ion on the court, stopping many a forward from accomplishing her feat. Now leaving the athletic Held, we will turn to the academic side. This class has some fine, smart students led by McKenna, the "profes- sor" of the class. We hope that they will keep up the good Work, and follow in the footsteps of their predecessors. H ,W JUNIOR CLASS Page 32 s'roNINfiToN num sonoon YEAR Boon. 19:10 .fa Inu.

Thorpe The Taciturn "Sophs" Here is a class that is quiet in comparison with the rest of the classes, and it seems that they take very little interest in the affairs at school. They are very reserved, and do not wish to be bothered with earthly affairs. Most of the class are philosophically inclined with the eX- ception of one or two. The "Sophs', have a few shining lights in the athletic field. It is not very hard to pick these out, since they shine up so greatly against the meekness of their classmates. The most noted of these is "Jimmie" Hanley, star guard of the football and basketball teams. Jim is also a member of the baseball squad. Duke Duhaime is another star on the baseball team, and holds down second base with the efficiency of a pro- fessional. Among the girls are Frances Thorpe, one of the most popular girls of the Class of '32, and also Helen Syzmanski, star forward of the girls' basketball team. We indeed hope that the rest of the class will soon wake up and begin to take their part in the work of the High School. Li, il lazy .

When we came to school in September We could hardly find them-so small Were they. We Will admit though, that this class has quite a few promising vamps and athletes. The Frosh gave a social in November, but it was a very private aiair--as only the Freshman classes from the two Junior Highs were invited to attend. We upper classmen heard later, how- Secretary ....... ........ V era Vargas Treasurer ,.,,................,....... Martha Gavitt ever, that it was a most enjoyable social. We hoped for the rest of the year that they would hold one to which the Whole school would be in- vited, but our hopes were in vain-for no social was ever held for' us.

STONINGTON HIGII SUIIUOL YEAR BOOK. 1930 Page 39 -L .. ,i GN WBIL . ,Y V. l GIRLS' PROPHECY Gwendolyn Morgan Does it seem possible that it can be ten years since the Class of 1930 graduated from Stoning- ton High School! Yet here it is June 1, 1940 and this census report isn't finished. When I found I had been chosen one of the census takers, I was just overjoyed, for not only would it take me back to my home town again, but it would furnish the grandest way of finding out interesting facts about people without seem- ing really impertinent. I decided to start East immediately. fI'd been teaching school out in Indiana for the last five years, but one day I found a gray hair in my head and I said to myself it's high time you had a vacation and, while this census job can't be called a vacation exactly, it's certainly been a change.J It was early morning when the train pulled into Mystic. I gathered my belongings together and climbed down. Surely I had made a mis- take-this couldn't be Mystic. Things were so changed-tall office buildings, a skyscraper here and there and more people than I ever saw in Mystic before even on Memorial Day. Well, I knew if I were going to count all those folks, I'd just got to get busy. So I picked up my bags and started in a hurry still gazing at those tall buildings. Just then I ran smack into some- body and who do you guess it was? Jerry Coon! I didn't recognize her at first-her boyish bob had grown out long and she wore it coiled round her head in a beautiful braid, and I saw she was keeping up with the styles too, for she wore an expensive looking tailored gown, high heeled shoes, and a big droopy hat with a long ostrich feather on it. She told me she was living out on her ranch in Arizona. Then I remembered reading in the paper about the big Coon Ranch. She had just come East with a carload of some new fancy breed of cattle. I was so glad to see her. She invited me to go back with her for a visit and I'm going-if I ever get this census finished. I decided I'd better hire an auto, so I began looking around for a garage sign and almost across the street, where Prunier's Gas Station Page 40 STONINGTON HIGHA SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 'dill' - , ,L , - Y: S4069-1 used to be, was a new up-to-date -garage with a big sign above the entrance that read Cottrell's Service Station, Used Cars for Sale or Rent. I went right in and not seeing anyone, I sang out 'fHello!" At once a round, smiling face was thrust out from under a machine and in spite of grease and grime I recognized Margaret Cot-' trell. I always thought Midget was cut out for something like that. I didn't ,lose any time getting her down .in the .book-Margaret Cot-' trell, age 28, color.white, married no, occupa- tion "Expert Mechanic." I found I could hire a used car for EB4 a day. It popped and banged a little, but Ifinally got -started. I hadn't gone far 'when I, noticed a Beauty Parlor sign, Madame something or other and it occurred to me that I'd .probably make a better impression round town, if 'I dolled up a bit. So I. parked the car and hurried in and there stood Madame, none other than Elizabeth Foley. There weren't any special appointments at that hour, so I de- cided to have a permanent, as it would give us such a nice long time to talk over'old times. My hair got singed a little, we got so busy talk- ing, but it doesn't show when I have my hat on. So far I had three names. It was 10:30 when I was finally on my way again. While I was de- ciding which street I'd better take next, I noticed two people gesticulating and having a very heated argument about something. I couldn't help Wishing I knew whatit was all about, so I went up a .little closer just in ti-me to hear one of them say: "You're sureto win, Tillinghast hasn't a chance." I knew right away it was Helen Turner. She hadn't changed a bit. Just tlhen she saw. me and came over with her same big smile. She told me she was running for Sen- ator. She just loved politics and campaigning was so thrilling. I told her I was taking the census and started asking her the questions. When we got down to occupation we hesitated a bit, but finally put down State Senator of Con- necticut. V To be sure the election hasn't been held yet Cbut I'm perfectly sure. she'll winl. I said good- bye to Helen and she went on with her politics and I started off thinking what a grand time I was having when I heard a shrill whistle and came to my senses to find I was driving straight for the sidewalk. I stopped and a cop came riding up on a motorcycle and was about to give me a laying out when I yelled out f'Bunny Monjo!" and she stopped right there. I felt STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 Page 41 I Y - .- Y- --YY 3-axr Y.

I found' she had been married sev- eral years, but housekeeping was such a tire- some, monotonous job she had decided to be a cop and was now leading a most exciting life. A loud honking of horns awoke me to the fact that my car was cross-wise in the street, so I pulled up close to tlhe curb while Bunny straight- ened out the traffic. Just then I saw someone going into the five and ten cent store. I felt sure it was Doris Gleason. I waited and watched and the longer I watched the surer I was that it was'Dot. She walked up and down the aisles. I felt positive now and, having visited the five and ten cent store with Dot-years back when we were going to high school, I knew it would be at least an hour before she came outy So I settled myself comfortably to wait. I must have dozed off for when I woke she'd gone, and it was 20 minutes to twelve. I was awfully disappointed, but just then my eye fell on a sign in big gold letters on what had been the old Main Block iihat read, "Teeth Cleaned, Straightened, Filled and Ex- tracted, Without Pain, Gleason and Rustici, D. D. S." I ran to the elevator and Hew up several stories and was soon face to face with my old schoolmate. She was just helping a toothless victim from Uhe chair. She greeted me in the same old fashion.- She looked quite happy standing there smiling triumpfhantly. She said, "You see,I'm getting vengeance on an old friend of mine," and she introduced me to her victim, who proved tobe the dentist we had bofth patron- ized in our high school days. Just then a side door opened and I beheld Mary Rustici in a starched white uniform. She was the same "petite infant." Dot informed me she never could have made such a success of the business if it hadnit been for Mary, for Mary tended to cleaning and filling and she depended on her to hold the patients in the chair while she her- self did the extracting. I couldn't help think- ing what a queer world it Vis. Who'd have thought Maryland Dot would have turned out dentists? I had just got them down in the book when all the whistles in Mystic started blow- ing for noon. I felt about famished, so I bade Mary and Dot 'goodfbye and went across the street to a'Chinese restaurant. All the tables were full except one. At this sat a lady all by herself, so I ventured over to ask if I might sit VM Page 42 STONINGTON HIGII SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 at her table when I saw it may Mary Monty! She had a pad and pencil and told me she was writing a book on 'Che "Customs of the Orient", and knew no better way of getting data than lunching here and observing these Chinamen. Slhe had several pages of queer looking carica- tures, so I asked her if she were writing it in Chinese and she said: "Oh no, those are just a few letters from the Chinese alphabet." She said she had picked out the cutest, prettiest ones and thought they'd be just too sweet for border designs or handkerchief corners. I asked her if she were married and she looke-d at me as if she thougiht I was a bit too curious, but I explained that I had to put it in my census report, so she finally said yes, but her husband spent most of his time in Europe, that they were happier that way. Well, well, that was news. After lunch I decided to do Baptist Church Hill. I knew that used car would never make it, so I parked it at the foot of the hill and walked up. By and by I came to a fine new house. Some women were out front admiring it, and I gathered from their conversation that it was the new Baptist parsonage built for the new Bap- tist minister and his wife and that he was the MSN nicest minister and had the nicest wife! I just had to see what she was like, so I skipped two or three houses and rang the bell. I haven't got over the shock yet. When the door opened and I saw Gladys Cranston, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Gladys a parson's wife! Wife of-let's see-the Reverend John -how very careless! I didn't put down his name. Well, never mind, Gladys Cranston, wife of John, the new Bapftist minister of Mystic, Connecticut. We had a perfectly lovely visit. I inquired what had become of Mary Alice Kuhn and sfhe said Mary Alice and Bobby were living up to the old proverb, and were enjoying a per- petual romance. We talked about the good times we used to have at Stonington High, and she told me how much she loved the minister and before I knew it the sun was setting and the clock on the ehurch said ten minutes to seven. She invited me to stay to tea, but since I've always found ministers somewhat disconcerting, I said good- bye and hurried down the hill. I was astonished to find the stree-ts almost deserted. A few stragglers were hurrying here and there. Somewhat frightened I made for the nearest doorway and inquired what it all STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 Page 43 van ' ,iq g, ,wr ,W -, ,Y ,,.- - ' K. uw meant. A tall stranger gave me a look of min- gled pity and disgust and said, "Don't you know that in about five minuters Madleline Harper and Sop-hia Wilhelm will be broadcasting from New York?" The Amos and Andy hour had been discontinued to make room for Sophia and Pat, and judging from the crowd, they were making a great hit. At precisely seven the voice of the announcer came to us saying: "By the courtesy of the 'National Hair Dyeing Associa- tion of America' we will now listen to a soprano solo by Miss Sophia Wilhelm accompanied by Miss Madeline Harper on the Jews-harp. I was soon so enraptured with the program that I forgot all else. I always knew Sophia had a beautiful voice, but I never dreamed Pat had such wonderful musical ability. I began to feel terribly tired, I'd had such a hard day, so when the program was ended, I asked the tall stranger who seemed so well informed Where I could find accommodation for the night and he said, "By all means go to the Ramona Hotel." Well I just knew I'd Hnd Mona Hanks there and sure enough. I'd just writ- ten my name in the register when I heard someone say "Gwenny!', and there stood Mona. She said she had built the hotel in 1935 and her only regret was that she had not made it twice as large. She came up to my room and we talked for hours recalling all the funny things that used to happen at Stonington. I noticed it was getting light in the east and a masculine voice in trhe next room groaned and muttered something about "them pesky women talking all night" so Mona, always considerate of the com- fort of her guests, tiptoed downstairs and I fell asleep. It was ten o'clock when I awoke. This would never do! I dressed more quickly than I had any time since I went to high school, and had to catch the bus. It occurred to me that the car must still be at the foot of Baptist Church Hill and sure enough it was there. Suddenly I knew I just must see the old High School building so I headed for Stonington. When I got over near Owen's Field I saw it had been transformed into what seemed to be a private airport. I stopped and went over and leaned against a great stone pillar at the entrance and thought about the many times I'd nearly yelled my h-ead off while the Stonington boys were earn- ing some of those thrilling football victories. At the same time I watched two planes poised like great birds above the field when suddenly I saw a figure and I screamed, "O they've fallen out !" I Page 44 STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL' YEAR BOOK, 1930 l , , . . MN' V6 ,.. , , held my breath in horror but she iluttered down just like an autumn leaf and landed so close that I saw at once it was Frances Shea and I said "Frances! I'm so glad you're not hurt," but she just laughed and showed me the medal on her coat. It said, "Award-edthis 10th day' of May, 1940, to Frances Shea, champion parachute jump- er of Americaf' Pointing to the second plane she said, "That's Irene Elson up in that one." She said Irene had gone up day before yesterday and expected to break all previous endurance records and probably' wouldn't be down for-at least a month. I was just'wondering whetherpeople who were absent from the earth at the time of the census ought to be counted or not when the plane began to circle and come nearer and we both shouted at once, "She's coming down !T' And sure enough it floatedlightly to the hangar and a min- ute later Irene came toward usqwiping her eyes. She toldius how dreadfully she wanted to make a record, but it was so lonesome up there all alone she just couldn't stand itanother minute. - I'd like to havestayedland sympathized- with her but I had to keep that census in mind so I started toward the'car just as Gertrude Cella came hurrying down the street, I felt quite hurt when she didn't stop, so I shouted, "Gert, Gert, wait a minute, I'm taking the census," but she just waved her hand and shouted back, "Can't stop, got a big scoop for the Stonington Mirror. Got to get it into this issue!" and went scurrying oi down the street. It was quite evident that she was a reporter and I knew her age already, so I sat down on the running board and started filling in my report. I had just written, color, white, when I felt a hand on my shoulder and a voice said in myhear, "Do you know what !" I turned to see a lady with 'a satchel and in the same breath I fairly shouted, "Frieda Fishman, of all persons!" "Yes, yes, of course," she said impatiently, "but do you know what! The foreign born citizens of the United Stat-es have a distinct advantage over the native born of America in that they are able in most cases to speak two languages. I am la- boring 'to make up that deficiency by introducing to the American speaking people these Easy French Readers and Grammars, which in a few hours' of home study will make us all masters of the French language." She opened the satchel and displayed several volumes. Noticing an abun- dancelofsmall packages, I inquired what they con- tainedand she said, "O yes," and explained that the small packages were shoe strings, a pair given free with each book. After that she seemed more STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 Page 45 vm-, 1 ,,-,., ,J , . .N 4 -1- Y- g-..xg Hxax., . ..-Olav like the old Frieda. She said that since she had thought of the shoe string idea her sales had just about doubled. I told her I'd just love to buy one, but at present I hadn't much money, but when the census was finished, I'd have plenty and would most certainly take one. We sat on the running board a little while, but Frieda wouldn't stay long, she was so bent on selling books. When I arrived in Stonington I found many changes. The high school building itself was much the same except for the addition of a big gymnasium. The sight of that building made me just homesick to see Marion Pellett. I wondered if she still lived on William Street. It would take just a few minutes to find out, and I could hardly wait to see her. I was about half way to Westerly when that used car gave a final pop and sputter and stopped. Whatever ailed it I didn't know. I peeked under the lvood and everything looked all right. But luck was with me! There was someone in overalls in a nearby field bending over a big tractor which in turn was hitched to a heavy roller. He'd surely know. So I hopped over the fence and hurried out there. As I got nearer I heard someone say, "Ladies and Gentlemen!" I paused but seeing neither ladies nor gentlemen I ventured on. Again I heard, "Ladies and Gentle- men, it gives me great pleasure." Just there the person in overalls stood up-it was Marion! and a minute later we were hugging each other so tightly that neither of us could speak. When I got my breath, I managed to ask, "Where are they ?" And she said, "Who?" "Why, the ladies and gentlemen," I said. "Oh," she said, "You -see I was recently elected Superintendent of Schools of the Town of Stonington and I expect to be asked to make a speech at graduation, and since I've never made one, Pm practicing ahead of time. I'm making this tennis court," she added. "for the benefit of the high school." She started the tractor and I sat up on one of the fenders and we rode back and forth, talking over old times. Mar- ion had to be in Westerly at five o'clock so I told her she could ride over with me if she could find out what ailed that car. It didn't take her long. She looked in the gas tank and sure enough it was empty. so we borrowed a little from the tractor and I let her out at William Street at exactly five minutes of five. It was getting late but I thought I'd have time to look Westerly over a bit. I parked the car over by the railroad and started Walking. Every- thing looked quite familiar and when I got up around the corner I could see Opie's big sign. I Page 46 STONINGTON IIIGII SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 MEL, Q.. - Y. - noticed several people turn in at a certain door- way. A boy peeped in and ran back. He look-ed scared. By this time I was g-etting curious, so I said, "What's the matter, sonny ?" "Spiritualists' meeting," he said, and pointed toward the door- way. Now I'd always wanted to attend a spirit- ualist meeting and here at last was my oppor- tunity, so I didn't lose any time going in. The room was rather dim but I could see it was full of people. A song was sung. Then som-ebody intro- duced the medium who would bring us messages from the invisible. She came forward on the platform, writhing and twisting and waving her arms, and told us of strange figures who walked unseen in our midst. My knees shook and I could feel my hair beginning to stand on end when suddenly there was something strangely famil- iar about this person. I looked again and then burst into shrieks of laughter for I knew it was Grace Main, still acting. I hadn't meant to break up the meeting but I just couldn't stop laughing, and people kept going out until only Grace and I Y CGW were left. We sat down on the edge of the plat- form and she told me she had tried the stage and the movies but neither was half as much fun as holding spiritualist meetings. I always knew Grace would do something unusual, but this was almost too much. I was so surprised that I had started to go, when it occurred to me that I was taking the census, so I went back and put Grace's name down in the book-Grace Maine, age 27, color white, occupation, acting. When I w-ent to get the car, I couldn't find it, so I took the bus back to Mona's hotel. I was fearfully tired, but I kept awake long enough to count the names that I had written-twenty of them. At four cents each, let's see-that would be-eighty cents. From a financial standpoint I have to admit it is somewhat of a failure, but to- morrow I'm just going to get busy-for one week from today Jerry and I leave for Arizona. GWENDOLYN MORGAN. STONINGTON IITGII SCHOOL YEAR BOOK. 1930 Page 47 Veil Y-.. -- I Y - 1 6? BOYS, PROPHECY Norman Smith Being neither an Elias nor a Moses I cannot portray the future of my classmates with true precision or vividness. And knowing that even though I should spend a thousand years, as it were, trying to pave a road of success for each and everyone, of these noble gentlemen, and still fail in my predictions, I shall turn to my only hopes of success-humor and imagination. And so I will tell you about the class of 1930, as it might be observed in twenty years from now. "K-en" QWilliams and myself, after spending these many years on our extensive and progres- sive Polar Bear Ranch in Deep River decide that it is about time to go and visit our classmates and talk over old times. We were very fortunate in starting out, we caught the Yankee Clipper, the weekly train, be- fore it pulled out. It was a fast and rough ride Way down to Stonington, and after leaving the Pullman car we thought we should go see the en- gineer about the way he was speeding. We no more than reached the cab than out jumped the engineer, and would you believe it, it was Johnson. Well, well, this surely was a surprise, but nevertheless, we did what we started out to do. Boy, what a bawling out we gave Eddie! And he finally admitted that he was go- ing thirty miles an hour, but promised to be more careful in the future. From here we walked down Water Street, and what a change, why you wouldn't know the place! There was even a new Post Office with two clerks. This was a surprise, but not such a surprise as it was finding "Bob" Freestone, Postmaster, 'fBob" surely was getting up in the world. Well, after a few words with "Bob" we adjourned to Jewell's up-to-date hardware store and restaurant. Here we were greatly saddened by the news that Jewell had left a few months earlier on an extended trip through Mexico and had been shot by a native. It is said that the Mexican mistook him for the President. After lunch we went up to visit the new school. It brought back memories of years gone by and soon we left for Westerly, being offered a ride by another '30 man-Mitt Gavitt. Gavitt was at present the proprietor of a first class hotel on Page 48 STONINGTON HIGH' SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 ,.7 7 4.-.,L-iI , van - - is --W new Pierce Street. We marveled that he was still alive and soon we said adieu as he dropped us off at Knight's Popular Pool and Lunch Room combined. We entered, but Knightie was hunt- ing jackals down in Africa and wouldn't be back for a month. Knight always did say that he was going in for big game hunting some day. From here we ambled over to Richmonds' giant two- story furniture store. Max was all upset, as he was not progressing very far in trying to con- vince a gentleman that it was more important to buy furniture than it was to -eat. Fearing that Max would either convince him or die in the at- tempt and take all day about it we exited after saying."Hello" to Jake Rosenberg, Max's first assistant manager. We had no more than cleared the door when we met Joe Gordon, Parker and Rietzel, partners in an oil venture down in Wakefield, so we all went over to Hughes' undertaking parlors and played pinochle a while. We were soon hungry again so saying goodby we went into Reardon's Quick Lunch on Mechanic Street and procured some nourishment. From there' we journeyed to Mystic in one of Tillinghast's Blue Label taxi cabs. Stuart's taxis operate between Bradford and Ledyard, one of the most successful cab companies in the country. Arriving in the beautiful and much altered Metropolis of Mystic, we 'stopped OH to see the greatest show on earth, so advertised. It was, of course, that same one-horse carnival that ar- rived every year. Upon entering, the first sight that met our eyes was the huge sign on the dilapi- dated tent across the lot. Joseph Conti, World's Famous Flea Trainer. Well, we ran over and met Joe. Joe told us that he had spent two years in South America capturing snake eating fleas. He said they were a very rare species and were only found on the baby boa constrictors. Well, this surprised us, but Joe always did say great oaks from little acorns grow. tHe probably figures on his fleas growing up and then he will try to sell them to the government to kill off the rattle- snakes out West.J Well, as it was growing late, we only drove as far as Old Mystic on our way to New London. Here was a place of unbelievable prosperity, its population had grown from seventy-five to two hundred in the course of twenty years and the inhabitants now boasted the ownership of two Fords. However, we were fortunate in finding refuge for the night in that wonderful modern STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK. 1930 P21356 49 val , - L., , . , 7,1 , , ,,,,,,....-. .,,, , , , . w...--..,.. .ILM Night Club of Godomsky's, known as Hollywood Inn. "Dom" was looking fine and, best of all, he let up sleep in his one and only feather bed. Arising early the next morning we discovered, much to our disgust, that our cab had a flat tire, but the driver assured us that we would not be delayed long as he had called a tire shop. The tire man soon arrived and would you believe it, it was Foote. He informed us he had a huge business in the locality, a tire station and black- smith shop combined, owned by Simon and him- s-elf. Simon furnished the money and Foote the brains. There was only one bad feature about the blacksmith end of it, there was only one horse in town. Well, after Foote changed the tire we proceeded on our way. Arriving in New London, we drove to Mercer Field, as Coach Kent's Snowbirds W-ere playing a football game against the Providence Steam Rollers, captained by Bob Spellman. Bob evidently took advantage of the football training he received in Stonington. The game was very close, a tie in fact. The crowd booed on a few close decisions, but Curt Harvey, the referee, an- other of our classmates, had the situation well in hand all during the game. Curt is a professional referee, having performed in such prominent and influential towns as Noank and Quaker Hill and he is not to be fazed by any crowd. After spending the better part of an hour get- ting the dust out of our ears and eyes in our room at the Fireman's Hotel, we Went down to lunch, Mr. Hoxsie and DeFosses being our hosts. Hoxsie and DeFosses were joint owners in this up-to- date hotel. Joe, also being a first class lawyer, located in White Rock, and DeFosses is the esteemed and admired Mayor of North Stoning- ton and the surrounding countryside. Well, after talking over a few topics with the boys, we found that the morning had quickly and quietly slipped by and for some reason or other, afternoon had set in. With a start, our own business was brought to mind, and having been gone for some time we thought it best to return right away. Arriving in Deep River we found, much to our dismay, that we had to walk home as the mayor had hired the only car in town for the afternoon. However, we finally ar- rived safely and settled down once more, await- ing with pleasant anticipation the ftime when once again we may go visit the haunts of our boyhood days.

No income was received from other sources than athletics. In view of the fact that the cost of equipping and transporting the teams Vis considerable, it is obvious that a self-supporting association like ours is to be commended for its ability to un- dertake and successfully fullfill its mission. Under the able direction of our new Head Coach, Leo Smith, our football, basketball, and baseball teams have been provided with as excel- lent equipment as is financially possible. The Finance Committee has tried to co-oper- ate with coaches and student members of the association in giving as many advantages to the athletes of our school as they deservedly require. At the same time, it has endeavored to prac- tice all possible economy in the disbursement of funds. By a vote made at the beginning of the school year, admission to membership ,in the associa- tion was made no longer dependent on the pur- chase of a season ticket. It was thought best thatuall of the student body be regarded as mem- bers. The association relies on the voluntary and'spirited support of everyone who is con- nected with the school. The few observations above can give but a very limited idea of the problems and activities of the association. Much could be said in praise of the assistance given by our very small but energetic corps of ticket sellers, and the industry and enthusiasm of our managers. To all of those, both students and friends, who helped us make this year a successful one, the Athletic Association wishes to express its sincerest thanks. -Walter S.

Starting with light material, which is common at Stonington, and badly handicapped by midseason injuries, Coach Smith succeeded in bringing his team through a hard schedule to beat Westerly in the annual Intertown Championship game, thus securing permanent possession of the American Legion Trophy for Stonington. The first Westerly game was one ofthe most disheart- ening of the season. Ed. Goyette, who was the only capable punter on the team, broke a finger a few weeks bofore the game, and as a result of his absence from the lineup, the whole burden of defense fell on the sturdy line, which fighting hard, held Westerly for downs, time and again, when she threatened to score. On the last play of the game, in fact even as time was being called, Bob Mudge, stocky Westerly half- back, swept around Capt. Powers' end for the only score. It was indeed tragic that the only gain made all day around Powers' section should be the one to score a touchdown. f At a meeting of the squad, "Skip" Adams was chosen Captain-elect. "Skip" distinguished himself during the season by his magnificent performances on the line. as ww nn!

KM The most successful basketball season, both athletically and finan- cially, in the history of the sport for the last five years has just been concluded. The new coach, Mr. Smith, was on the court not so many seasons ago, and his work with the boys produced fine results. The team compiled a fine record, losing only twice, and beating the Rhode Island Interscholastic Class B champs, South Kingstown, in one of the hottest games of the season. Perhaps the most benefiting part of the season, however, was the Interclass League organized by Coach Smith, in which nearly twenty-five boys, representing the four classes battled in bi-weekly games throughout the season. The Juniors, and incidently, five of our present Varsity stars are Juniors, won the league champion- ship by coming through the season without dropping a game. Next year we should have an even more successful season than the past, since none of the first team men will graduate. Ed Goyette, who led the team through the present season, has again been chosen to head the basketeers of '31. BASKETBALL TEAB1 e-56 STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 , - ,HIGW M g r.

Although their's has always been a good team, this year's was even better than usual, and they came through winning six out of eight games. With only two of last year's regulars, "Path Harper and Ramona Hanks, prospects before the season opened were not too promising, but by dint of hard and faithful work, last year's "subs" worked into first team position, as if they had always been there. On the home court every game was a victory, but on two games away, they learned the taste of defeat. One of these games was with their old rival, W. M. I., in New London, and the other with Plainfield, in Plain- field. "Pat" Harper, as a captain and a player, was all that one could ask for. She led her team to victory, not only through hard work in playing, but by her example of good sportsmanship. Ramona Hanks. center with Miss Harper, was right there every time, and the two of them together formed a bulwark in center that was pretty hard to break through. The passing of these two players from S. H. S. is a heavy loss for next year's team. Other stars of the team are: H. Szymanski, C. Ferrie, W. Delagrange and I. Nurmi. All in all it was a fine season, and one that reflects great credit on the directing of the girls' coach, Miss Gertrude Mulville.

Goyette, star catcher, was shifted to shortstop and as the season advanced we found Patterson at first, Newbury at third and Duhaime taking care of second base, while in the outfield Hanley played in leftfield and Abbott trotted around in rightfield. Grimes and Broxy took care of the catching department. At the beginning of the season Spellman and Williams played in the outfield, but both were lost to the team through difficulties. The ball club was captained by "Dom" Godomsky, who pitched and played in the outfield. By the way, "Dom" was the leading hitter of the team having an average well over .400. Capt. Godomsky was a fine leader and gave all he had to bring glory and fame to the Brown and White. His fine work and brilliant leadership has earned him a place in the hall of fame with the rest of Stonington High's immortals. tijki N G23 H670 MMG A L 5 Q 1221 fx QV wmv..

Led by Adams, Gavitt and Goyette, their crowning achievement was the Winning for the third successive time of the Class B championship of the Rhode Island State Interscholastics. They be- gan with a practice meet with Westerly, the first dual contest ever held between the ancient rivals. Stonington took this by a small margin. The second meet was at Bristol, Conn., where Stonington trackmen were outclassed by the Bristol runners. The third meet was the interscholas- tics, already noted. The fourth, with Chapman, resulted in another Win for Stonington. The last meet for the League Championship, came as an anti-climax to the interscholastics, and was Won by Bulkeley.

Although not Winning any meets, the Stoning- ton hill-and-dalers gave their opponents a hard tussle in every contest. Cross-country, for some reason or other, is extremely unpopular at Ston- ington, and this has its eiect on the teams, since it is hard to get veterans to race with the team. The present team, with the exception of one member, was composed entirely of rookies, and succeeded very well, considering that side of the case. Since all the regulars except one, who graduates, will be here for two more years, and since they all seem to enjoy running, it is very 'probable that the team next fall will be a Win- ning combination. qw CROSS COUNTRY TEAM 1926 BASKETBALL TEAD1 - 1922 Page 66 STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 IW W CLASS ODE By Grace Maine We are leaving S.

CStein Songl BROWN AND WHITE STAFF Stepping into the footsteps of th-eir predeces- sors, the members of the Brown and White Staff have indeed made themselves worthy of their positions. Last year Mr. Illing brought up the idea that the faculty should select a certain num- ber of students whose scholastic merits were quite high. Of these, the student body elected the edi- tors who were all Seniors, and the assistant ed?- tors, all Juniors. The assistants were to become editors the following year, And now we have the results, four splendid is- sues of the Brown and White. These issues were greatly enhanced by the cover drawings of the art -editors, "Gwen" Morgan and "Chick" Martin. Much credit should be given to "Bob" Spellman, editor-in-chief, and also to the business managers. It is quite certain that the assistants will keep up the good work, for they showed their ability, by putting out a splendid Easter number, Brown and NVhite Statl' Page 68 STOXINGTON HIGH SCIIOOL YEAR BOOK. 1930 7,7 .fd IN will 7,7 M, 4., 'SvCLUB "Our Athletes" is the name given to the mem- bers of the "S" Club. The "S" Club this year has had a very large enrollment of students, con- sidering the number of students in the school. Nevertheless, the "S" Club has conducted a very successful dance due to the work of Thomas Hughes and other members of the dance commit- tee. The "S" Club seems to be made up mainly of Juniors, the Junior Class seem to be the most athletic group of the school. The Seniors, how- ART Another of the new clubs which have sprung up within the past year is the Art Club. This is composed entirely of members of the diferent drawing classes. Muchcredit in establishing this club should be given to Miss Rowland, the draw- ing instructor. This club has progressed very rapidly, both financially and socially. A very successful Christ- mas sale and tea dance was held, and theninoney ever, come a close second and ranking highest among these are Godomsky, our famous twirlerg Spellman, the plunging full-back, and Parker, the most steady linesman on the football team. The oiic-ers of the "S" Club are mostly Seniors, show- ing that they still manage a large part in the af- fairs of the school. Though the club has not been very large this year, nevertheless prospects for it seem brighter, as the Sophomores and Freshmen are beginning to take a part in the affairs of the school both athletically and socially. CLUB obtained from this has helped to redecorate and refurnish the art room. Although its member- ship is not so large as could be, the club is very active for its size. It contains quite a few art- ists, among whom are "Gwen" Morgan, "Chick" Martin and Grace Maine. It is not quite impos- sible that the Stonington High School Art Club will in the near future produce another D'Angelo or Raphael. Rik "S" CLUB Page 70 STUNINGTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK, 1930 veil V ICN DRAMATIC CLUB The Dramatic Club of Stonington High School was organized this year under the direction of Mrs. Irene Lucy. The frequent applications for membership testify to the interest of the stu- dents in this club which aims to give each mem- ber an opportunity to take part in at least one play each year. The enrollment is about fifty, and represents students from the four classes in the school. The special committees, such as Cos- tume Committee, Stage Committee, Property Committee and Advertising Committee, give the students an opportunity to use their ability along various lines. A one-act play, "Sauce for the Goslingsf' and a two-act play, "The College Stick," were inan- cially successful and netted the Dramatic Club a sufficient fund to carry on. Other one-act plays are being considered for production. It is hoped that the fund created this year in the treasury will enable the Play Selection Committee to select plays of a bigger quality next year. Lack of money with which to pay the royalty on better plays limited the selection this year. Through the efforts of the club, material for a stage curtain Was acquired. It was designed by Thomas Hughes, Joseph Gordon, Cyril Duhaime and Joseph Hoxsie. The club has been very lb- eral in allowing the use of the curtain for as- sembly programs. The officers of the club Whose untiring efforts have contributed to the success of the organiza- tion are: President ..eee,e,.,.. .eee,.. T hos.
