We, the class of forty-one,
Each a loyal daughter and son,
United as a general rule
Pledged allegiance to our school.
The day was September eleven
Nineteen hundred thirty-seven.
Tho' scattered in three sections
We soon lost our apprehensions
The entertainment of this year
Are memories we hold dear.
At Stonington a Freshman Ball
Attended by both short and tall.
In Mystic to the beach a trip,
With laughter on each student's lips,
A dance was held at Pawcatuck
With plenty of good luck.
Scholastically we were bent-
Thus our Freshman year was spent.
The following September
We were brought together,
And in our class election
Lawrence Anderson was our first selectiong
Eugene McKenna, a Mystic resident
Was chosen by us as our Vice-Presidentg
From Stonington was chosen
Treasurer, Georgia Kitchen
And with Ruth Sprague as Secretary
Our class had not a wdrry.
Our Sophomore Hop hit a high
You may be sure when itfwas nigh.
The purchase of the sophomore rings
Was decided by the class voting.
In ou'r junior year came the thrill
Of climbing up Mayflower hillg
On reaching the top, before us lay
Our new high school in full display.
Samuel Lamb was our class head
By no one better could we be ledg
Robert Siart next in line
Was Vice-President at that timeg
Ruth Sprague as before
Was Secretary for one year more
And Treasurer, Claire Thavenet
Who all requirements met.
Won second place, the judges did say,
"The Wonder Hat", our competitive play.
S I I I I nv'
Our outstanding athletes certainly did shine
Not to mention a few would be a crime:
In football, Anderson, Calkins, and Guekel
Won praise as high as a steeple,
Joe Piccolo prominent in basketball
Also starred with O'Neill in baseball,
Peabody and Lombardo famous in track
Zeal and courage did not lack,
In cross country what would our class have done
Without little johnny Lombardo to run.
Came the junior Prom-a memorable night
We danced and danced with hearts so light.
We hailed our senior year with glee
Studious and enthusiastic were we.
Donald Peabody, a well-known student,
Was elected our class president,
Our vice-president, Bill Roseman
Is quiet, but full of fun,
Our secretary abounding with pep
Teresa Connors, a good record kept,
We cannot forget Georgia Kitchen
Our treasurer who was elected then.
The Senior Prom was held in the gym
Beautifully decorated with lights dim.
Our competitive play was a grand success
For we placed first, no less.
"The Happy Journey" was the name
Of this play which brought us fame.
Our Senior Play, "Young April"
Was presented after many a drill.
Football captain, Larry Anderson,
Was a previous star of our gridiron.
While Guekel, Calkins, and Roseman
As a result for all they've done
Made the all conference team last fall
And we were proud of them one and all.
Anderson, Piccolo, Higgins, and Tattersall
Were our leading Senior boys in basketball,
Birtwistle, Peabody and Lombardo
In track each won praise as a hero.
Our baseball stars gave us a thrill as we sat
When Roseman, O'Neil, and Piccolo were at the bat
As our graduation draws nigh,
Erom our lips escapes a sigh,
A trace of sadness in each heart
As from our Alma Mater we depart.

The Student Council was organized in September
with the election of officers. The first accomplishment
of the Council was to report on the 1940 graduates,
and complete the information on the chart in the oflice
as to the "doings" of 'the graduates.
The outstanding achievement of the Council was
the point system as drafted and posted in homerooms.
At the Fall meeting of the Eastern Conn. Federation
of Student Councils held at Putnam, this point system
was a topic of discussion.

The popularity of the Biology Club has increased
greatly since it came into existence six years ago.

number of new members was limited to only fifteen
in comparison with twenty to twenty-five in other
years. It now has a total membership of approximately
It has been very successful in combining work with
pleasure and thus keeping up the spirit and interest
of its members. Under the able supervision of their
faculty adviser, Mr. joseph Gordon, they enjoy hikes
and bicycle rides on which they learn many useful
and interesting facts about nature.
They are helping to make the biology room a scene
of interest by their contributions of plant and animal
life, and the student body frequently is entertained by

still be outstanding in the many years to come.

The Camera Club, one of the largest clubs in the
school, has been very active this year under the excel-
lent leadership of Mr. joseph Gordon.
A thirty gallon tank for developing films and a
printing box for making contact prints have been
added this year. The dark room is now equipped for
almost all kinds of photographic work.
Regular contests were held during the year and
prizes awarded. A special contest 'was held with The
Westerly High School Camera Club.
The number of members has increased and we hope
that next year even more students will be interested
and active in photography.

In its first year of existence the Dramatic Club is
already one of the most important and active clubs in
the school. Under the direction of Mr. Anthony
Pupillo, the Club has formed the "backbone" of the
school's hardiest thespians.
Faculty Adviser-Mr. Anthony Pupillo
Plays were put on at various intervals by club mem-
bers. The plays were so arranged that every member
of the club was cast in at least one play.
The Dramatic Club has without doubt aroused a
decidely greater interest in dramatics. We feel sure
that this interest will become a tradition in future years.

"Come on Brown! Come on Wliite! Come on Ston-
ington! Fight! Fight! Fight!" are some of the familiar
shouts which you heard during the football season
from the attractive brown and white clad figures of the
Stonington Cheering Squad. They worked hard and
enthusiastically at all the games.
The cheerleaders are depended upon to buoy up the
spirit of the team by giving the spectators frequent
opportunities to show the players that everyone is
wholeheartedly supporting them.
They have been efficiently guided by their faculty
advisor, Miss Mary Mullaney.

STONINGTON HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA
First row, left to riht-janet Forbes, Catherine Mercier, Marilyn Tripp, Ruth Dawley, Beverly
Truss, Pasqualina Pellegrino, jean Sicilian.
Second row-Miss Fuller, Thomas Crowley, Robert Stearns, Atwood Anderson, Wilfred Chese-
brough, Charles Dunn, Herbert Greeley, joseph Tuite.
Music Supervisor-Miss Marion Fuller.
The orchestra this year is composed of a large group
of talented students as is always the case at Stonington.
The organization has the same membership as last
year and all but one of the students will be there next
year. This appears very promising because there will
be a number of good musicians graduating from the
various grammar schools.
The orchestra played for the first time at the Christ-
mas assembly and proved to be a group of which Ston-
ington High School can be proud.
At the annual spring concert, presented by the Musi-
cal Department and conducted by Miss Marion Fuller,
the orchestra again made an appearance and this time
was even more highly praised for its excellent work.
We are very grateful to the orchestra for playing at
our commencement exercises.
We are henceforth looking forward to a banner year
next year because of the increased membership and
- W ag.,
The glee clubs, ably directed by Miss Marion Fuller,
have made a name for Stonington High School. The
school can well be proud of the performances the glee
clubs gave this year at and away from school.
A new feature in this year's work was the combin-
ing of the girls' and boys' glee clubs into a mixed
chorus. The change has been praised by many of the
students and townspeople who like the mixed voices
better. The total membership of the chorus is eighty,
which shows that the school is especially fortunate in
having a large number of talented singers.
The combined glee clubs provided the accompani-
ment in the Christmas play, "The Little Match Girl."
The boys' sextet and the girls' ensemble sang be-
tween the acts of the play, "Aunt Abbey Answers an
Ad," presented by the Stonington Players in February.
The glee clubs sang at their third annual concert and
their singing at the concert topped that of the preced-
ing performances. r
On April 25, this year's work was highlighted by a
select group singing at the Winsted Choral Festival.
Congratulations to the group which sang at the Choral
With all these excellent performances ever present
in the minds of the people of Stonington we believe
that they will support the glee clubs throughout the
As we glance back over the past year, we are highly
satisfied with the successful work in the dramatic field.
Last year the student body was launched on ttfeir dra-
matic career and this year has continued in this field
with a series of successes.
The first major production this year was the compet-
itive plays, held on March 28. The three upper classes
enthusiastically took part in the competition.
The Seniors' winning presentation, "The Happy
journey", was a typical Wilder play which drew a
great many laughs from the audience. The cast con-
sisting of Catherine Brown, John Donahue, Samuel
Lamb, Claire Thavenet, and Frances Birtwistle was di-
rected by Miss Gladys Tillinghast.
The juniors presented a thrilling mystery, "The
Black Widow", under the direction of Miss Mary A.
Nania. The cast included Beverly Truss, Walter Bousa,
Dixon Hemphill, Clara Young, Charles Palmer, Grace
Scheller, Rosalie Tudisco, Atwood Anderson, and
Miss Mary Mullaney directed the Sophomore cast,
consisting of james Trumbull, jean Sicilian, Geneva
Roode, Wilfred Chesebrough, Rosalind Shea and
George McKenna, in a one-act comedy, "A Young
All three of these plays were received with enthusi-
astic applause from the audience.
On April 16, the Seniors presented to the public
their annual play under the able direction of Mr.
Pupillo. The play, entitled "Young April", a comedy
in three acts, included in the cast: Orabelle Shea, john
Higgins, Donald Peabody, Frances Birtwistle, Charles
White, Eugene McKenna, Samuel Lamb, Claire Thav-
enet, Teresa Connors, Nancy Tudisco, Russell Holmes,
joe Piccolo, Betty Bailey, Muriel Perry, Dorothy Reuss
and Theodosia Lesniewski. The stage crew included
john Donahue, assistant director, Gloria LoPresto,
prompterg Richard Bromley and Robert Clachrie, stage
hands. The faculty members who assisted the cast
were: Miss Lois Peterson and Mr. Belisle, scenery,
Miss Katherine Keegan, business manager, and Miss
Mary Cogan, setting.
In our weekly assemblies many short skits and var-
iety programs have been presented, each directed by
various members of the faculty.
This year a Dramatic Club was organized under the
leadership of Mr. Pupillo. This club has brought forth
anew dramatic interest among the student body. The
speech arts class, with Mr. Pupillo as faculty adviser.
has brought to light many amateur actors and actresses.

4 T.- l Ii '
Starting the 1940 season, with a green team that
lacked experience and weight, Coach Michael Cronin
produced his usual scrappy, hard-charging football
Coming from behind in the second half of their
first game against Windham High School at Willi-
mantic, the Bears showed their ability to stage a come-
back. Scoring 13 points in the last half, the Stonington
gridders defeated their Thread City rivals 13 to 7 and
aroused the coach's hopes of another Eastern Connecti-
cut Conference Championship.
Added to the coaches enthusiasm was a 13 to 6
triumph over Norwich Free Academy. This was the
first taste of defeat that Norwich has felt from an
Eastern Connecticut rival. Stonington's'two touch-
downs were scored within 45 seconds of each other.
Stonington's second touchdown came after a Norwich
punt was blocked by Earl Calkins and smothered in the
Norwich end zone by three Stonington players.
Playing their third consecutive game under flood-
lights, the Stonington eleven eked out a victory over
the Bulkeley Tigers by the slim margin of 13 to 12.
Bulkeley's two touchdowns were scored on two spec-
tacular passes from Downie to johnson. The expert
spot passing of joe Piccolo and the receiving of Earl
Calkins accounted for the first Stonington touchdown.
Stonington's second score resulted from a kick blocked
by Bill Roseman that was recovered by johnny Guekel
on Bulkeley's 20 yard line. Piccolo and jeffrey com-
bined to carry the ball over the goal line for the sec-
ond Stonington score.
In their fourth start, the Stonington Bruins battled
the Fitch Tangers to a scoreless deadlock. Both teams
shone brilliantly on defense but both lacked the ability
to s,core. This broke Stonington's victory streak and
it was also the first time in the season that they failed
Chapman Tech's power was too much for Mike
Cronin's charges when they rolled up a score of 19
to 0 over the Bears. The gritty Stonington eleven held
the powerful Huskies at bay until late in the third
period. At this point a series of bad breaks enabled
Tech to score three touchdowns in quick succession.
.This score was one of the highest ever to be registered
.against a Cronin-coached team.
In pouring rain and in ankle deep mud Stonington's
Class B State Championship team defended their title
against Woodrow Wilson of Middletown. Stoning-
ton was content to play a defensive game because of
the slippery conditions and mud-coated ball. The Bears
played their usual brilliant defensive game and suc-
ceeded in stopping the powerful attack of the Middle-
In their first meeting with their arch-rivals from
Westerly the Bears were held to a scoreless tie by an
inspired Westerly team. The battle seesawed back and
forth with neither team making a serious bid to score
until the final minutes of the game. At this stage Ston-
ington made their most serious bid. Fine 'passing by
Joe Piccolo and brilliant receiving by Gene McKenna
brought the ball to Westerly's 18 yard line. Before
another play could take place the referee's whistle
ended the game.
Weary of the scoring famine which kept them with-
out a point for four consecutive games the Stonington
Bears unloosed their fury on the hapless Robert E.
Fitch eleven of Groton, defeating them 26 to 6-the
greatest number of points ever scored in one game by
a Cronin-coached team.
In the final classic of the season the Bears travelled
across the river to test the strength of their arch-rivals
for the second time. The- two teams were evenly
matched but just before the half a Westerly back re-
turned a Dion punt 72 yards for the only score of the
game. Stonington threatened several times in the sec-
ond half but failed to score.
We wish to salute the Senior members of 1940's
football team, namely: Captain Lawrence Anderson,
Acting Co-Captains john Guekel and Earl Calkins,
William Roseman, Eugene McKenna, George Tatter-
sall and Robert MacKenzie.
Stonington has great promise for future stars in
their undefeated second team coached by james Han-
ley and Ed Petro.
The Stonington Cubs went through the season with
an undefeated record that shows great promise to the
coaches for future years.
In a game with the Chapman Tech seconds the
Stonington Seconds romped to a 19 to 6 victory. Eddie
Edgar, Stonington's fleet-footed Sophomore halfback,
scored all three of Stonington's touchdowns.
In the first two contests played with Westerly the
Stonington Seconds ran wild in plowing their arch
rivals under by a score of 28 to 6. Sharing the honors
in this game were Eddie Edgar and George Tattersall.
In their second contest, playing on Westerly's home
field, the Bulldogs played a better defensive game and
held-the flashy Bear Seconds to a 7 to O score. Playing
a well balanced defensive and offensive game the West-
erly V.'s, but once in threatening territory, were held
back by the staunch and gritty Bear line.
These boys who showed so many possibilities this
year, will next year or in two years be playing in var-
, ' bp'

In the finals for the Eastern Connecticut Conference
Championship held here at Stonington, the Bear har-
riers were declared the winners after a dispute over
rules. After looking up the rules of past years the
rival coaches and the Conference Board found that
Stonington won the title. .
This was the Bears' biggest year in Cross Country
since 1928. In dual competition Stonington downed
Bulkeley, Norwich, and lost only to Westerly.
The only Senior on this team is Captain john Lom-
bardo who led his team to every victory.
Coach Crouch's outlook for the next few years is
bright as all the other boys on the team are Freshmen

A decided upswing in basketball hopes came about
with the appointment of Ed Petro as coach. Coach
Petro installed the Rhode Island State system of fast-
breaking, passing, and free shooting.
' His 1940-41 team won three in a row and then lost
two games before the Christmas recess. One of the
defeats was by a single point at the hands of South
Kingston and Westerly pinned on the other defeat.
At the end of a sixteen game schedule the Bears
ended by breaking even, losing eight and winning
eight games. The biggest upset of the season was
Stonington's victory over Norwich Free Academy. The
Bears defeated the Wildcats in both of their games in
a home and home series.
Stonington's varsity club, made up mostly of under-
classmen, finished in a blaze of glory by scoring con-
secutive victories over Robert E. Fitch, Plainfield, and
N. F. A. The one point triumph over Plainfield proved
to be the most exciting game of the year.
Averaging 46.4 points per game, the Bears had their
biggest night against Killingly, tallying 74 points.
Westerly's total of 79 points in the second game of
the series was the heaviest registered against the Bears.
Individual scoring honors went to Bob Friend, a jun-
ior forward. He totaled 206 points in 16 games for
an average of 14.4 points a game. In foul shots, Larry
Anderson led the field with 34 and he also was run-
ner-up for scoring honors with ,156 points. Winky
Sullivan, a sophomore, was third in the scoring de-
partment with 140 points. Altogether, Stonington out-
scored their opponents 748 to 738.
Coach Petro's outlook for the 1941-42 season should
The Iayvee team won 10 and lost 4 games. They
were the only jayvee team to defeat the Westerly Jay-
vees. The team scored 449 points to their opponents
348. Findeisen, with 194 points, was the leading
scorer for the jayveesg Berube was runner up with 90,
and Kenyon was third with 77 points.
From a squad of 30, four boys will be lost by grad-
uation-Captain joseph Piccolo, Larry Anderson, john
Higgins and George Tattersall. Eleven lettermen will
report for practice next season.
If the team continues toimprove we shall all look
forward to a successful season next year.
