Ceruti Patronize Semajihore Advertisers Page Five THE SEMAPHORE SENIOR STATISTICS MISS CHRISTINE DONOVAN, Senior Class Adviser A thousand l)ouquets of thanks to the guiding hand of the Class of Thirty-four! Ords alone can not express our ajjpreciation for the many helpful bits of advice and suggestions so readily and volun- tarily offered by our Class Adviser — Miss Christine Donovan. She is the personification of patience, wis- dom and cheerfulness, always willing to assist and to make the many problems encountered in Senior ac- tivities much easier. Goodbye and good luck, Miss Donovan, and may you always hold the respect and admiration of your charges as dearly as we cherish the memories of you in this parting! LEO MITKIEVICZ " Mitt " " An outstanding performer on the football team, But he has a passion for photos, it seems " " Mitzy " has all the qualities of a fine sport and a popular student. He is renown- ed for his easy-going manner and his care- fiee disposition. Leo never has been known to exert himself unduly over any task; this may be the reason that he has less gray hair than the rest of us. " Mitzy " played tackle on the football team and during the spring he managed the baseball team. Dur- ing the latter years of his High School career, Leo has become more serious and conscientious than he formerly was. He plans to go to Tufts College on the Heights of Medford. We hope that he attains suc- cess and reaches his goal on the Heights. HELEN WHITING " Helen " " Helen ' s sweet. We ' ve said enough. " Helen was voted the most beneficial girl in the Senior Class and there ' s no doubt about that, for of course you know she is vice-president of our class, and consequent- ly has lent her opinions and ideas to sev- eral committees throughout the year — the Graduation Committee, Place Committee, Prom. Committee, Senior Play Committee, and Dress Committee. She has also been a member of the Art Club, Glee Club, and Latin Club. She has aho been on the Honor Roll continuously during the Senior year. Page Six CHARLES SNOWDALE " Charlie " " Another actor of our play gone past, Success to you and may it last. " " Chailie ' s " ear-to-ear grin is one of his most positively identifying characteristics. He found no interest in athletics during his four years at Stoughton High, being musically inclined. For the past two years he has been responsible for that off-key clarinet squeak which is heard rei ularly every Thursday during orchestra rehearsal. The Glee, French, and Science Clubs also claimed him as a member. As " Farone " in the Senior Class Play, he mystified the audience to the very end as to whether he was the hero or the villain. " Charlie " has no definite plans in mind for his future, but we heartily hope that he finds his place in life in time to be a success. BEATRICE PHILLIPS " Bea " " ' Bea ' is reckless behind the wheel. Causing brakes to howl and squeal. " Have you seen " Bea ' s " class pictures? They came out " perfectly swell! " " Bea " has been very active in school affairs, hav- ing taken part in French, Glee, Art, and Dramatic Clubs, Gift Committee, and Grad- uation Dress Committee. As the " Ghost Woman " in the Senior Play, she was won- derful and portrayed the character very well. " Bea " is well liked by everyone and is renowned for her famous (or infernal) giggle. She plans to attend Simmons Col- lege next year. Loads of luck, " Bea " . Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL ALEXANDER WANCUS " Al " " He ' s tile ' wise-guy ' of our class, Whos« booming voice we ' ll never surpass. " " Al " put his nickname down as " Rats " but we aie inclined to disagree. Although he has taken no part in sports, " Al " has shown his prowess as a pitcher in baseball. A noted feature of " Al ' s " is his deep bass voice which he vainly tried to get under control in the Glee Club in his first and third years. He also was a member of the Commencement Committee. RUTH SMITH " Jeff " " Here ' s ' Ruthie ' ; ' though kind of plump. She causes many a throat to lump. " " Jeff " is just as her name implies — very " petite " . She is good natuied and just loves to romp around the gym during gym classes. The French Club has vouched for her presence and she was on the Reception Committee. " JefF " says she ' s going to Business School to further her career as a stenographer. SARAH IRWIN " Sally " " Here ' s a girl that ' s easy on the eyes; She ' s very popular with us ' guys ' . " " Sally " joined the ranks of " ye Stough- tonites " during the Junior year. However, since then she has come into the limelight considei ably. She wasj chairman of the Graduation Place Committee and in the Ivy Day Sketch. As " Florrie, " in the Senior Play, Sally made an adorable young- er sister and filled the part to a " T " . She has no plans for the future other than re- turning for a P. G. course next year. JOHIn KLUND " Tubby " " Tubby ' s a very likable kid. And willing to do the least little bid. " " Tubby " was voted the best looking boy in the Senior Class. He was co-captain of the basketball team and received three let- ters in this sport, besides four letters in basehall. Despite all this activity, " Tubby " was also prominent in other school aft ' airs, being a member of the Graduation Dress C;nimittee, Junior Prrtm. Committee, and the Banquet Committee. " Tubby " took the commercial course and aspires to be a " heap big business man " . Patronize Semaphore Advertisers JACK DRUKER ' " Yunk " " Here ' s a hustler and business man. If ads are needed, you ' ll find he can. " S ' toughton High will lose one of the most willing workers it has had for several years when " Yunk " leaves here in al few days. He has been a " one-man business staff " of the SEMAPHORE for the past two years, and this humble publication owes much to him for his splendid woik in soliciting .ad- vci tisements. Although a natural-boin woman-hater. Jack ' s wavy blond hair has swayed many a girl ' s glance. Besides be- ing ti-ack and basketoall manager during the last two years, he has found the time and energy to be an active member of the Glee, French, and Science Clubs, not to name all the various dance. Prom., and graduation committees. He was Vice-Pres- dent of the Class during his Sophomore year, also. Having taken an active part in all advertising and publicity work during his tei-m in school, it is only natural for him to announce that he intends to make Sales and Advertising his career. With his am- bition and energy, he is sure to be a suc- cess in this field. Good luck. Jack! VICTOR WINROTH " Vic " " Here ' s a lad in a love tangle, Someone ' s neck he ' d love to strangle. " We all recognize " Vic " by his neatness and his ironic humor. Has anyone ever seen " Vic " when his face wasn ' t beaming like a new penny? He has a good start for his deep, dark, secret ambition. He intends to go to Tufts ' Medical School to become a dashing young doctor. He has served on the Junior Prom. Committee, the Class Ring Committee, and the SEMAPHORE staflT. He caps the climax and ends his High school career as Ivy Orator on Class Day. Good luck, " Vic " . WALTER PHILLIPS " Phil " " His passion is for pretty ' dames ' . He gets along, (so he claims). " Walter supported the Basketball, Foot- ball, and Track teams during his Fresh- man year. He was a member of the Glee Club for three years and the French Club during his Sophomoie year. He was the His- torian for the Junior year at the Senior Banquet. He expects to go to some busi- ness school and learn to juggle figures. Good luck, Walter Page Seven THE SEMAPHORE LILLIAN GEMME " Lil " " An outstanding character is ' Lucy Hacker ' In the play she made this chai-acter. " Here ' s " Lil, " our actress who took the part of a gangster ' s ' " Moll " and spiritualis- tic medium in the Senior Class Play. She has been very active in her four years at High school, being a member of the French, Glee. Latin, and Art Clubs, and numerous dance and graduation committees. She has also been on the SEMAPHORE Staff for two years. This year she was voted the most popular giil in the Senior Class, as well as the Class Flirt. We all think a great deal of Lillian and wish her loads of luck at Massachusetts State Colle je in Am- herst, where she is going to study to be a French teacher. JOHN SHIPPALOWSKI " Shippa " " ' Shippa ' simply slays her dead; ' Betty ' s really gone to his head. " Here we have quite a ladies ' man. Watch his face turn scarlet when " Betty " is men- tioned. He ' s always ready for a good joke and is well-liked. This year he suddenly rose as a football hero and was he cheered from the stands? He is almost a star athlete for he has earned four letters in football, two in basketball, and two in baseball. He has taken part in Class Day Exerciser and was on the Banquet Committee. Therefore, we know why our banquet was good. He tells us his future is undecided but we know better! WILLIAM KELL " Bill " " He ' s often seen up in the ' sticks ' , Who is the girl that ' s got him fixed? " Being what these girls call " rather cute, " " Bill " had no difficulty whatsoever in em- barking upon a " High School romance. " He also has another side to his character in addition to being romantic — he is a good athlete, prominent in school affairs, and a " swell " sport. He received seven letters — four in football and three in basketball. " Bill " never exeicised his vocal chords in the Glee Club but he did participate in French Club activities. Sophomore Dance Committee, Prom. Commttee, and the Ivy Day Sketch. " Bill " intends to go to busi- ness school, but personally — we think he ought to start a bakery and bake only choc- olate cakes! What do you say, " Bill " ? JOHN DeLOUGHREY " Duke " " This Indian athlete is noted afar. All girls except one he does bar. " " Duke, " our red headed he-man has pos- itively ruined more than one Sophomore girl ' s peaceful existence by merely flash- ir( her a smile. He has earned four letters, two in baseball and two in football. " Duke " was also a member of the Senior Class Play Business Committee. He has no plans for the future as yet but we hope he has all the success in the world, anyway. ANTHONY KIRELIS " Tony " " ' Tony ' s ' quiet all the time, The best dressed boy in the line. " " Tony " is the best dressed fellow in the Senior Class. He is tall, very blond, and " verrreee " quiet. " Tony " has not taken part in very many school activities but of course that ' s where he gets the reputation of being so quiet. He has no plans for the future but we hope that he ' ll be a success in whatever line he chooses. JOSEPH JOYCE " Joe " " ' Brissels ' was supreme on the football field. Fooling the opposition with the ball con- cealed. " " Joe " is noted for his pleasantness and is always ready and waiting for a laugh. Mebbe he likes football or sum ' p ' n — he went out for it four years and received two letters in the same. He also earned two letters more in basketball — a grand total of four " S ' s " . " Joe " has been on the Prom. Committee, Senior Pictures Committee, Graduation Committee, and in the French Club. An all-round good fellow, eh what? WILLIAM HORAN " Billy " " ' Bill ' looks bored but don ' t be fooled, ' Cause he really loves to go to school. " " Billy " is rather small, blond, and ex- ceptionaly quiet. As far as we know, Billy ' s pet hobby is reading and he spends most of nis time with his nose buried in a book. This year he is on the School Gift Committee, which is going to have a hard time choos- ing a gift — within our meagre means. As for the future, " Billy " plans to enter the mighty business world. Page Eight Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL ARTHUR STONKUS " Art " " A football player of not«, He often got the enemy ' s goat. " Here ' s another one of our good-looking boys. " Art " isn ' t tall, dark, and handsome but he is good-looking, blond, and possess- es a " perfect physique " . He has been out for basketball, baseball, and football, re- ceivinij an " S " in the latter. He has also been in the Science Club and on the Sen- ior Banquet Committee. Oh, yes, and we must mention something else about " Art " — he surely can dance. One of these kind, y ' know — y ' dance with ' em and just drift away somewhere. He intends to work days and attend night school. Some " ambish " , I ' ll say. GENEVIEVE CERUTI " Genie " " Our dashing Secretary has changed a lot, Who is this boy that she has sought? " " Genie " has light hair and is very " cute " . She has a way with the boys. The Student Council consumed much of " Genie ' s " abili- ty and reason. This year, the Senior election found Genevieve Secretary of the Senior Class. We are sure that she will be successful at the profession she chooses to follow, which is nursing. YOLANDA ALIMANDI " A certain song describes her best, We ' ll not tell; we ' ll let you guess. " Yolanda is a little girl and is just as quiet as a mouse. She keeps her youthful figure by making the rounds with the notices each morning. Besides making her Freshman numerals in basketball, Yolanda has been a member of the Glee Club, French Club, and the Banquet Committee. She is undecided about the future. MARY WALLACE " Polly " " Good luck to you and may it last. You ' re always smiling in every class. " " Polly " is one girl who has a perpetual good-naturedness. She joined our ranks during our Junior year and has become very well liked. " Polly " has been chosen for the Class Gift Committee and is a good participant. As yet she has no plans for the future, but may you have much luck, Polly! EVERETT PERRY " Scottie " " The commander himself is in our school, Good old Everett will follow his rule. " " Scottie " showed speed and ability in the track meet last year by coming in sec- ond in the discus throw and the 220-yard run, and third in the 440-yard run. He played Basketball during his Freshman year. For two years he was a member of the Glee Club and plays in the School Or- chestra, and is a member of the Senior Re- ception Committee. He has hopes of work- ing for Uncle Sam in the Railway Postal Service. We hope you have lots of luck and success, Everett ' DORIS BURBRIDGE " In the office she holds sway. She ' s always toiling every day. " Doris is another one of our " little " girls " and judging from the amount of noise she makes, one would think she never does any- thing, but this is not the case. She belongs to the Banquet Committee and has belong- ed to the Glee Club and French Club, and has made her Freshman numerals in basket- ball. Doris wants to go to a business school and she ought to make a success as she is very efficient in that line of work. PRISCILLA HILL " Pussy " " ' Pussy ' is her nick-name. Here ' s the girl ' Bid ' did tame. " " Pussy " is the musician of the class. She plays the piano for the Senior Class and for the orchestra. " Pussy " also excells in Latin and was a member of the Latin Club her Freshman year. She is very fond of dc«?- wood branches and may be seen at certain times of the year gathering arms full of the stuff. Lots of luck! GEORGE LITTLEFIELD " Enoch " " When you hear a laugh and a roar. You ' ll know it ' s ' Enoch ' at the door. " George was almost arrested once for theft. He was charged with stealing a laugh from a horse. Everyone has him noted for it. He was on the Graduation Committee and cut some figure at all the League Basketball games. Any afternoon you may see George peeping from behind counters as he diligently waits on customers at the First National Store here in town. Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Page Nine THE SEMAPHORE ALBERT STATKUS " Al " " He always tries and pushes on, But can ' t go far because of corns. " " Al " is tall, light, and handsome, and is the only boy who had the courage to take Home Economics. He has supported the baseball squad this year, and maybe that accounts for some of it ' s success. " Al " re- veals that his secret ambition is to become a retired business man. Well, we hope it will be as easy as that for him and may he be successful at it. RICHARD GAY " Pecker " " Whenever you listen to ' Pecker ' you ' ll always grin. For he ' s quick-witted and has always been. " Unlike most of us, " Pecker " just loves pains. And committees, too. He has been on the Class Gift, Basketball and Football ticket selling committees. He also played Basketball during his Junior year. After leaving dear old S. H. S., " Pecker " plans to attend night school and become a brawny mechanic. WALTER ROMANICK " Walt " " The boy that ' s going to fly aloft. Until his wheels or wings drop off. " " Walt " is tall and light-featured and has a weakness for aviation and painting. He is a licensed pilot and spends much of his time around airplanes. He has received a letter for his service on the Basketball team. He was on the Decoration Committee for the Junior Prom, and is on the Senior Recep- tion Committee. " Walt " hopes to follow up his painting and flying ambitions. Here ' s luck, " Walt " ! JOHN TRACY " Tracie " " You can ' t fool John; you see He knows his onions from A to Z. " John is a quiet sort of person with dark curls that are the envy of all his girl class- mates. How do you get them, John? Come on, now, give us a tip! In spite of his quiet- ness, John ' s occasional wise-cracks usually bring a laugh. Once he was merely a re- porter on our honorable SEMAPHORE staff but this year he was promoted to Assistant Sports Editor. CHARLES SEAMANS " Charley " " Lanky ' Charlie ' is there in a pinch. Delivering papers sure is a cinch. " " Charley " took up his abode m S. H. S. during our Sophomore year and since then has made a hit with all the old-time mem- bers of the clasi. Prominent in school " go- ings on " he has been chairman of the Grad- uation Place Committee. He has also been in fie French Club for two years and Assistant Business Manager of the SEMAPHORE. " Charley " is noted for his funny laugh — it ' s so funny you laugh whether the joke he tells is funny or not. And really, did you ever notice his nice blue eyes? He in- tends to go to Mass. State — we ' re on to you, " Charley " — it ' s a co-ed school, y ' know. EDITH CRAM " Edie " " She certainly has them all fooled, Every time she comes to school. " When you hear the words, " calm, cool, and collected " you immediately think of " Edie " . Perhaps that accounts for the fact that she is one of Mr. Randall ' s right-hand assistants in the office. " Edie " belonged to the French Club in her Sophomore year and was property manager of the Senior Play — and, by the way, ask " Edie " to let you see those pictures that were taken at the Play. Boy, did " Edie " look out of place! " Edie " has no plans for the future as yet, but we know she ' ll make some man a per- fect stenographer. ROY BEATON " The ever popular boy of our class. His work and benefits for us will last. " And now for the boy who stole all the honors during his four years at High school. We all agree on two points and they are — Roy surely has a real brainy brain, and he isn ' t " cute " , he ' s just plain good-looking. He has not only been our capable editor of the SEMAPHORE for two years but in addition, was president of the Southeastern Massachusetts League of School Publica- tions. As President of the Senior Class, Roy has also been on all the Senior committees throughout the year, in addition to the Junior Prom. Committee and French Club (2 years). He plans to take the competitive examination for the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis in the fall and we all feel sure he ' ll make the grade. Page Ten Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL CLARENCE BENSON " Swede " " They call him ' Judge ' — we know why, Good luck with chickens, beans and flies! " This tall, handsome blond known as " Swede " has an everlasting grin and most any hour of the day you ' ll find him deliver- ing a speech on " Bees " to some apprecia- tive class. And does he know the great open spaces! Well, no wonder, with all the country up Sumner Street to explore. " Swede " plans to enter the New York State Forestry School at Syracuse, and we all wish him success. JOSEPH DALY " Joe " " The lawyer ' s son is sure a peach. With pretty girls at the beach. " Here ' s " Joe, " one of the artistically in- clined members of the class. " Joe " is an ac- tive member of the Art Club and the Sci- ence Club. But the boy sings, in fact he belongs to the Glee Club. " Joe " has earned his letter in Football and is doing a very successful job of managing the baseball team this spring. Here ' s luck to you, " Joe " . CHARLES ROSENFELD " Rosy " " ' Gertie ' is all he talks about, He ' s quite a man when stepping out. " " Rosy " is a likeable fellow but doesn ' t have much to say. He is a member of the Reception Committee and during his four years took part in track and football activ- ities. When asked about the future, " Rosy " nonchalantly replied, " Well, I hope to end up in the mechanical line of work. If not, I ' ll stick with the old man. " Such crude language, " Rosy " . ROBERT DEXTER " Bob " " Once a lover. Oh, so true! Now he ' s sad and feeling blue. " " Bob " , the " Freckled-face Kid " , is just one big bunch of good humor and smiles. He has been on the basketball squad for three years, as well as giving his efforts to the French Club, Prom. Committee, Ivy Day Sketch, and business committee for the Senior Play. However, " Bob " seems to have one weakness — namely. Redheads. He plans to try to enter Massachusetts Nauti- cal School and if not successful, to be- come an automobile salesman. Best of luck. " Bob " ! Patronize Semaphore Advertisers OCTAVIA DURKEE " Tessie " " We ' ll tell you why you ' re fat, ' Cause you never roll on the mat. " " Tessie " is pleasingly plump and is noted for her good-natuiedness. She has lovely skin that is the envy of many an admiring on-looker. " Tessie " has done her bit by serving on the Refreshment Committee at the Sophomore Hallowe ' en Dance, the Can- dy Committee at the Senior Play, and the Graduation Committee. She plans to take a P. G. course and then is going to be a nurse. VIRGINIA DYKEMAN " Dyke " " The class giggler, did you say? She ' s all right in every way. " " Dyke " is noted for her supreme giggling and merriment. She went out for hockey in ' 31 and has been a member of the Glee Club, Hiking Club, French Club, Candy Committee at the Senior Play, and the Commencement Committee. " Dyke " proves a capable assistant in commercial work at her father ' s stoi ' e and plans to continue in this line. Good luck! CAROLYN HATHAWAY " Carol " " She looks quiet and dignified. Until you see her other side. " " Carol " is one of the quieter members of the class but this does not detract from her personality in any way. She is always ready to laugh at some funny incident, thus showing the humorous side of her character. " Carol " is going to be a nurse and we know she will make a very pleasant one. ANNA NORKUS " Ann " " The dear old prompter of our play. She helped us out in many a way. " If you heard any peculiar noises at the Senior Play you know now that it was only " Ann " prompting those vicious characters. And did she do a good job! " Ann " was cap- tain of a class team in her fii-st and second years and received the numerals. She also served on the Graduation Committee. " Ann " is uncertain about the future be- cause who ever heard of a certain one? Page Eleven THE SEMAPHORE CHARLES WILLIAMS " Freddy " " This boy, Fred, is widely known, He ' s caused many a girl to groan. " " Freddy " ' was the piesidenc of the Junior Class. His flaming red hair and pleasant grin are two reasons for his popularity. He has a big power over the girls, especially when he says, " Is oo? " I guess you didn ' t know " Freddy " is a full-fledged tap dancer! You should see him dancing around his heme room! He was a member of the Glee Club and SEMAPHORE staff, and was quite an asset to the football team. LA.RY MacCOMBIE " Shrimp " " An oil truck takes her home each day, The driver is " Ken " , if -we may say. " A glorious crown of carrot-red hair dis- tinguishes " Shrimp " from the crowd and it never seems under control. She is noted for her smallness but " good things come in lit- tle packages, " says " Shrimp " ! Her services were outstanding on the Refreshment Com- mittee at the Sophomore Hallowe ' en Dance and the Senior Reception of 1932. She was also a member of the Prophets Committee. As for the future — (?) (?) (?) DOROTHY BIRD " Dot " " They ' ve named her ' Sprii ' ; but she ' s not shy, She ' s very good company in ma ' iy an eye. " " Dot " was voted the neatest girl in the class and she surely is immaculate. " Dot " has lovely clothes and she always keeps them in the best of condition. She has been a member of the Junior From. Committee, Graduation Dress Committee, Semaphore Staff, Glee, French and Art Clubs. " Dot " has no plans for the future as yet but we sincerely hope she follows in the footsteps easiest for her — art. " Dot " can draw, sketch, and can she " sculp " . RICHARD WAHL " Richie " " He ' d fall for any fair head, So it ' s Barbara; so his brother said. " " Richie " , in spite of the fact that he comes from " Do ?-Corner " , is one of the most popular boys of the class. Although he wears spectacles, it is awfully hard to get anything by him. He has been faithful, sla ishly faithful, in fact, to one member of the present Sophomore Class for ever so long. This, howe-ver, has not kept him from being an alert member of the Advanced Mathematics Class, for " Richie " is seldomly " stopped " by a nerve-wrack- mj problem in Trigonometrj- or Solid Geometry. During his four years here he has been a helpful member of the school orchestra and promises to " play first fiddle for the Czar " some day. As " Willie Worgle- " , the stuttering freshman, in the Senior Play, he stole the show. " Richie " plans to attend the New York State Ranger School next year and we hope he makes good in his chosen career. Page Twelve JAMES CONDON " Tiger " " ' Tiger ' is clever in many a way, Although no sports he did play. " Hold that " Tiger " — but not away from Randolph. James is one of the S. H. S. boys that ha a " heap big interest " in Ran- dolph. He has participated in the Science Club and warbled in the Glee Club for one year but his voice hasn ' t improved much, has it, " Jim " ? He plans to attend Lowell Night School for two years and then to plunge ahead into the engineering course at Northeastern University. EVELYN HAYDEN " Evie " " She never chums around with us. Perhaps because her friend has a ' bus ' . " " Evie " is a good looking girl but she ' s awfully quiet. Maybe because her interest is in some town other than S " toughton. Is that it, " Evie " ? She has been a member of the French. Glee, and Hiking Clubs, as well as able Alumni Editor for the SEMA- PHORE. We don ' t know " Evie ' s " favorit« hobby but it ought to be dancing, ' cause she sure can " trip the light fantastic " ! JOSEPH LEHAN " Joe " " His blushing looks and baseball fame Have given ' Joe ' quite a name. " " Joe " is our star baseball player — plays short stop and none of the fellows can hold a candle to his " short-stopping " . He earned four letters in baseball and one in football. " Joe " has also " squeeked " in the Glee Club, and participated on the Senior Play and Banquet Committees. By the way, " Joe " , aren ' t you " that way " about a certain Junior girl? Patronize Semaphore Advertiser STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL MARY ROMANSKY " Bedelia " " She was a hit in our play, With her laughs and funny way. " " Bedelia " gets her nickname from her part in the Senior Play. She showed her ability in Dramatics by the excellent man- ner in which she played this part. Mary has been a member of the Glee Club for three years, the Orchesti-a for four years, the Art Club for two years, and the Dramatic Club for one year. So, you can see that she is extremely talented. She also was a member of the Senior Photograph Committee, tiie Senior Class Prophet Committee, the French Club for two years, and the " S " Club for one yeai. Mary played great hockey for Stoughton High. She is undecid- ed as to -what she will do in the future. Well, good luck and success, Mary. RUSSELL HAYDEN " Pete " " Although the hero of the gridiron is our ' Pete ' , We must admit these verses of his can ' t be beat. " Now here ' s our all-round good fellow. " Pete ' s " an actor, a poet, and a novelist. He has warbled in the Glee Club, been on the Class Gift Committee, Graduation Com- mittee, and Student Council, for he was our Sophomore President. Besides writing our Class Ode and being on the SEMA- PHORE staff for four years, " Pete " took the difficult part of " Lon Hacker, " the vil- lain, in the Senior Play and practically lived in the part, he carried it out so well. JOHN QUILL " WIHPN " " When station WIHPN is on the air, You ' ll know it ' s this lad for fair. " " Johnny " was voted the smallest boy in the class but that doesn ' t seem to detract any from his ability as a ladio operator. By the way, don ' t you call him " WIHPN " ? As you would probably expect, " Johnny " was a member of the Science Club for two years and intends to attend the Eastern Radio Institute. He is also musically in- clined, havmg lent his presence to the Glee Club for one year and the High school or- chestra for two. John pals around with Warren Dahlin and they ' re both " that way " about radios and " YL ' S " . MELVIN CLINE " Bert " " The future doctor of our town. He ' s quite stout and very round. " Everyone knows " Bert " and he makes his appearance in full force every Thursday in Muiic period, proving to be a big help to Miss Goeres by passing out the much- loved music books. His melodious voice has been heard in the Glee Club for two years and he has been prominent in the French and Dramatic Clubs. His hobby is floral cul- ture and he plans to enter Northeastern University to study law. He is a memiber of the Commencement Committee. He was also in the Basketball League and created quite a stir when he proved his prowess against tiny Adolph Bonder. ELIZABETH MURPHY " Lizzie " " ' Lizzie ' likes an Indian bold. They certainly keep away the cold. " And now here ' s the loudest girl in the Senior Class — so she was voted. But that doesn ' t detract in the least from " Lizzie ' s " " rep " or her perfect disposition. By the way, " Liz " was also voted the most agree- able, too. She was on the Sophomore Hal- lowe ' en Dance Committee, and the Gradua- tion Dress Committee. She also exercised her vocal chords in the Glee Club for three years and took part in Class Day exercises as one of the Pr ophets. " Liz " has no plans for the future but let ' s wish her success, anyway. VIRGINIA TRACY " Trace " " Is she an athlete? Everyone chimes, ' We ' ll say! ' She ' s good in any line. " Virginia has freckles and what goes with them — a sunny disposition. She has been a member of the Latin, French, and Glee Clubs and was also on the Graduation Place Committee. We all like Virginia a lot. In spite of the fact that she lives " way out in the sticks " we see her every day for she has a fine attendance record. By the way, she will be in the limelight at the ban- quet for she is one of our Class Historians. As yet, " Trace " has no definite plans for the future but personally we think it ' s her secret ambition to attend M-ass. State. Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Page Thirteen THE SEMAPHORE FELICIA ZIENKO " Terry " " She knows a good many jokes On everything; including folks. " Felicia is a big, husky girl and has light features. During the Freshman year she supported the girls ' hockey team. She was a member of the Home Economics Club and is a member of the Senior Commencement Committee. P ' elicia is undecided as to what she will do in the futuie. We wish her the best of luck and may she have success. STEPHEN LA PORTE " Steve " " He has great powers to catch fish, For he loves them for a dish. " " Stove " is short and light complected and is quite husky for his height. He is a quiet fellow and has taken little part in sports at High school, but he was a mem- ber of the Glee Club during the Senior year. He was also a member of the Senior Commencement Committee. " Steve " hopes to attend some school where he can learn a trade and we all wish him luck. MARY WALLAN " The office girl of period four. She stands guard outside the door. " Mary is small and dark and is very quiet. She has received two letters for her ability and skill on the hockey team and went out for the girls ' basketball team during her Freshman year. For two yeais she exercised her voice in thfe Glee Club. She was a mem- ber of the Hiking Club during her Fresh- man year. Mary reveals no plans for the future, but we wish her lots of luck and success. ROBERT RANDALL " Fleetfoot " " They say that ' Bob ' is very quiet. But in Sales he ' s quite a riot. " " Fleetfoot " received his nickname when he proved his ability at the Track Meet last year. He won the half-mile run, came in third in the 440, 880 and the one-mile runs. His speed was an asset to the Football team and the Basketball team. Robert hopes to find work as soon as he graduates. May success and advancement be his throuijhout. ELEANOR KRONA " She captures the hearts of men afar. While in her lessons, she ' s far above par. " Eleanor is one of the popular girls of the school and can always be found typing a " note " to her running-mate, " Kid " Herron, much to the amusement of the various stu- dents who assist in passing it down tiie aisle before teacher finally gets it. Then it is usually read to amuse the class while waiting for the bell to ring. (See Mr. Maf- feo for further details.) The French Club, and Hiking Club have seen Eleanor ' s serv- ices and she has helped keep the back end of the bus down while riding to and from Sumner street. JAMES PYE " Jim " " A baseball hero is big Jim, We certainly owe a lot to him. " " Jimmie " was almost voted the star ath- lete, and why not? — he has received ten of those precious orange " S ' s " — three in foot- ball, three in basketball, and four in base- ball. Some sportsman, I ' ll say! " Jim " has also been a member of the French Club, SEMAPHORE staff, Graduation Dress Com- mittee, and Graduation Place Committee, not to mention his aid in making our Jun- or Prom, successful. As " Terry " , a college student, in the Senior Play, " Jim " did very well despite the fact that he didn ' t know his cues ' till the night of the play. " Jim " is exceptionally tall and good-looking — so the " belles " from Brockton think. He intends to go to either Hufitington Pieparatory or Massachusetts State College. Let ' s hope it ' s Mass. State. Some fun, eh " Jim " ? WARREN DAHLIN " Warren handles all the cash, But has a weakness for feminine dash. " You know Warren is the hound who ' s always after " Blood Money " — better known as class dues. He has been our Class Treas- urer for two years and you can well be as- sured that he has " made a nice thing of it " . Though a very bashful young man, War- ren has found the " gumption " to be in the orchestra, French Club, and to be a mem- ber of our beloved SEMAPHORE staff. Warren is very much interested in wave lengths and static and intends to further his education at the Eastern Radio Institute.

Page Sixteen Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL A History of the Class of Thirty -four On September 5, 1933 at 8 o ' clock, the Class of ' 34 came back with smiling faces and alert minds to their dear old Alma Mater. Some were sad at the thought of this being the last time they would assemble to begin school ; others were glad for this same reason. Twelve years seem to most of us to be a much too long period to attend school. However, it is safe to say that when one has reached the " Senior-in-High-School " stage the prejudice against school is al- most gone, until, of course, the few weeks immediately preceding graduation comes. With this approaching event comes a desire that one might be free from les- sons and exams, so that one might spend his remaining days in school life in leisure with nothing to worry about and plenty of time to talk and associate with one ' s classmates. And now follows a brief history of the class. The Class of ' 34, the largest ever to graduate from Stoughton High School, is com])osed of thirty-seven girls and lifty boys or a total of eighty-seven. Nothing much exciting ha])pened the Freshman year but it can safely be said that this is one class in which there were few timid Freshmen. Why, the ui)])er- classmen shivered in their boots when they saw those big fellows like " Jim " Pye, " Joe " Lehan, Walter Romanick, " Bill " Kcll, Leo xAIitkievicz, b verett Per- ry and thirty or forty others. And as for the girls, they had the brains. Many of the boys have contributed their great abilities in the various sports of the school. However, there are so many of these fine athletes that space does not permit the mention of each individual. The girls, although not quite so active in sports as the boys, did their share of winning a place in feminine athletics. The Class of ' 34 has been well repre- sented in the musical line of the school. Both the girls ' glee club and the boys ' Patronize Semaphore Advertisers glee club had fine Senior attendance. The orchestra has a larger percentage of Seniors than any other classmen. W e know that the orchestra and the school will miss those fine musicians, Richard W ' ahl, Mary I-iomansky, Arthur Penardi, Alfred Sidebottom, Charles Snowdale, Priscilla Hill, John Quill, W ' arren Dah- lin, and Everett Perry. And, when it comes to amateur theatri- cals we must admit that such splendid actors as Lilliam Gemme, Mary Jordan, Sarah Irwin, Mary Romansky, Fred W illiams, James Pye, Russell Hayden, Arthur Stonkus, Charles Snowdale, Bea- trice Phillips, and Richard W ' ahl in " Spooky Tavern, " the class play held at the State Theatre on April 6, deserve ])raise. The SFMAPHORF, the school publi- cation, has at present fifteen Seniors out of a total of twenty-five on the stafif. ICven from its Freshman year the Class of ' 34 has been active on the paper, and it is, without doubt, the hard work and cfi ' orts given by Roy Ik ' aton as h2ditor- in-Chief and the fine stafif of business managers that has made this magazine l)ossible and as successful as it has been this year. W ' e must not think that the Sen- iors have spent all their time in outside events. .As a whole they have kept up their studies very well and a great num- ber have reached the honor roll time after time. Among the social events of the class were the Sophomore Hallowet ' en Dance and the Junior Prom. Both these affairs were very successful from a social vie vi)oint. However, they were only fair from a financial stand])oint, due to the well-known depression. The graduating class fully realizes the help and cooperation given to it by the faculty and knows that it can never repay the teachers for what they have done.

However, the extremely difficult opposition made up for the lack of games. The season opened with the squad traveling to Nashua to wage a terrific battle with th.e latter, the game ending in a scoreless tic. Although this contest added no victory to the boys ' string, it added much to their moral sup- port. Their next contest was with Mans- field, the opponents taking the game by one point after a hard-fought battle. The following game was held with Aliddle- boro in a driving rainstorm. Our squad showed their stuff even in a muddy and slippery field and came out the victor by seven points. The next battle with North Attleboro was a moral defeat for the home team when its opponents de- feated them by one point by means of their excellent passing attack. Then came the game with North Easton, Stough- ton ' s minor rival. Our squad launched a slashing attack and defeated the weaker team by a large margin. In this game Stoughton displayed a great aerial de- fense. The following game with Dart- mouth resulted in another easy win for our team. However, in its next strife with W ' alpole the team suffered the worst defeat of its season, losing by a score of 6 to 12. The game with Franklin was a walkaway for the boys, Stoughton winning by a very high score. Attleboro, their next opponent, was turned back by a two touchdown lead. Then — on Turkey day — the final and long-anticipated game with the school ' s ancient rival. Canton, was waged. Here the determined squad sought vengeance for their previous de- feats and piled up the highest score of the season. In all, Stoughton High turned out the best squad seen in years by local fol- lowers, l)eing far superior in ability and sportsmanship to their rivals. Let us hope that the year 1934-35 will see as successful a season.

Their season ' s schedule included a total of seventeen games. P om these, fifteen victories were garnered. The season ended with the home team in possession of the Hocka- mock League crown, which was taken from Foxboro only after a terrific strug- gle. Several of the contests offered great excitement and suspense as tiej scores and small leads were encountered. How- ever, in almost every case the local boys pulled out of the tough spots in a whirl- wind finish. Because of these close struggles the spectators were more than well-satisfied. The smooth playing and speed of the team accounted for their excellent sea- son. Much cooperation was executed, no one particular plaver taking the spot- light.

Thus, we have a team that is out- standing both on the defensive and of- fensive.

The Stoughton-Norwood battle ended with Stoughton on the short end of a 6-2 score, but not without their putting up a stiff battle. The return game with Canton was also a tough break for the local boys. After winning the first one by several runs they were forced to take the short end of a 11-12 score in the sec- ond.

If you are so fortunate you owe it to yourself to develop your talent as completely as your ability and opportunities permit.

RESUME OF THE 1933-34 GIRLS ' HOCKEY SEASON Now let us walk down ] Iemory Lane back to the fall of 1933 and peek in at the Girls ' Hockey Season, their last one with their much beloved Coach Krick- son. After weeks of practice they marched otit to face an equally confident Canton team. The result was a scoreless tie, 0-0. ' ith their hockey sticks shouldered they continued on their way to Brain- tree. This was their first setback and the club wielders rettirned with a 3-1 score in favor of their opponents. Again the team got set back a pace, for a powerful ' alpole eleven defeated them by a margin of 3 to 0. In their next skirmish, Stoughton proved they did have the ability and " pep " to win from the oncoming Can- ton team on Canton ' s home grounds by a score of 4 to 0. Their motto was " Beat Canton or die " and " beat " them they did. Back came Braintree. galloping for another victory btu they soon returned quite pacified with a tie score 1 to 1. With their hopes high but predictions not so good, the girls started for ' al- pole to play the last game of the season. After quite a muddy skirmish on a still muddier field they sticceeded in hold- ing the W ' alpole eleven, 0 to 0. In a way this meant victory for Stoughton be- cause it showed our team had improved, had become more confident and knew Page Twenty-six Patronize Semaphore Advertisers GIRLS ' HOCKEY SQUAD Top row (left to vig ' .it) — M.

The team was not| so successful when yon realize they won only one game, hut they succeeded in holding three e(|ually strong, if not stronger, teams from victory over them.

RESUME OF THE 1933-34 GIRLS ' BASKETBALL SEASON This time we continue our trip down Memory Lane until the cold winter winds send chills up and down our vertebrae and the snow flying on all sides of us re- minds us of the Basketball Season. A strong rival .Sharon team started ofif oiu " season and promptly won from our new basketball sextet with a 32 to 14 score. However, back to the winning ranks marched Stoughton in a game over in Holbrook, which they won bv a score of 27-22. Again by fast playing the girls won by a close margin of victory 32-29, on Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Foxboro ' s home floor. Hooray ! .Another game is won ! How the girls passed and repassed that ball for another laurel, this time over Fox- boro in our ow i gym. The final tally was 28-21. The lassies from Randolph broke Stoughton ' s winning streak and our girls came home with the score 30-5, a power- ful Stetson team taking the prize. Again the team suffered a crushing blow from the Sharonites. After a fierce struggle the latter outplayed them 19-9. Alas! Alas! and Alacky ! The girls had to " take it on the chin " again ; this (Continued on Page Thirty-nine) Page Twenty-nine THE SEMAPHORE Our thorough, practical and com- plete training fits the student for high-class employment.

" Here is one of those sweet, refined in- dividuals who never say much. Eleanor never makes herself heard but she has a great many friends. She likes Basketball, but has never earned a letter. She belonged to the Glee, French, and Hiking Clubs and this year was on the Reception Committee She is quite a stenographer and likes it, so no doubt we ' ll soon find her working in a large office. ROBERT O ' BRIEN " Tunney " " ' Tunney ' is loud, but quite a lad, He keeps us all from getting sad. " " Tunney " was on the Junior Track Team and has played Inter-Class Basketball. He lent his vocal chords to the Glee Club for one year and is goinig ' to take part in the Class Day Sketch. " Tunney " wishes to be a salesman and is going to Burdett ' s to pre- pare himself for this trade. We think suc- cess in this line of work will be easy for " Tunney " . JOSEPH WERESKA " Joe " " ' Joe ' s ' a boy scout and he holds That strawberries can ' t grow to be old. " " Joe " is a quiet fellow, therefore, has not taken part in any of tiie athletic and social activities at High school. " Joe " hopes to find work this summer and in the fall he hopes to go to an Aviation School to study the mechanical functions of planes and piloting. Good luck, " Joe " . AGNES CORBETT " Agie " " Slim and graceful is this little gal. To all her friends she ' s one true pal. " Agnes is a quiet but adventurous little devil for she tells us that she intends to take up Journalism. Can you imagine this refined, sweet young lady jotting down clues at a murder? She has been on the Sophomore Hallowe ' en Dance and Recep- tion Committees and in the Glee Club. She took up basketball in her Freshman year and we know she should have stayed for she was some player. Page Thirty-three THE SEMAPHORE GENEVIEVE LAFRANCE " Gen " " ' Gen ' stood out in girls ' field hockey, Making the opposition ' s path seem very rocky. " " Gen " has the disposition such as is sel- dom found. She always has a smile ready and is one of the neatest girls in our class. One of her secrets is her hair, which is al- ways exactly as it should be. She certain- ly enjoys doing it because she intends to take up hair-diessing. If she starts her business in Stoughton, we shall all go to her because of her skill and personality. " Gen " has shown her sportsmanship by earning four letters in Hockey and Basket- ball She has belonged to the Glee and " S " Clubs and this year is on the Reception Committee. ALFRED SIDEBOTTOM " Al " " A trumpeter, you say? And boy, can he play! " " Al " is a quiet, studious sort of a fellow. His dark, wavy hair is one of his features. He is a member of the High School Orches- tra and is also air-minded. He has hopes of some day being a pilot. Perhaps he can com- bine his musical talent with his ambition and produce a flying band to entertain his passengers. Anyhow, good sailing, " Al " . IRENE SMITH " Renee " " Here ' s a i irl that ' s very cute. And, boys, she certainly is no ' fruit ' . " " Renee " is a very dignified little girl and is never seen with a hair out of place. She is very neat and her plans to study hair- dressing at the Wilfred Academy should prove very successful, indeed. She has been a member of the French Club, Glee Club, and the Reception Committee. NAOMI FARRELL " Very quiet, but attentive, too, The best of luck we wish for you. " Naomi is another well-liked girl who never says a word unless with her pals. She has beautiful black hair, which she keeps neatly done. Her clothes are the envy of many a ijirl and we find her on the Ban- quet Committee this year. Naomi intends to be an interior decorator, so " Best of Luck " to her. PENNYS BARBER SHOP HAIRCUTS 50c SHAVES 25c AMERICAN NATIONAL REGULATION 8 WYMAN STREET Stoughton Compliments of THOMAS M.

She can always be found on Eleanor ' s neck and watch ouc what you say to Catherine — she always has a snappy comeback! Malt- by ' s is her goal. MARY JORDAN " Dignified and haughty is our little Mary, Yet very charming, while a bit contrary. " By clas3 majority, Mary was proclaimed the best-looking girl in the Senior Class and she truly deserves the honors. Have you ever seen her all decked out in her blue suit and Breton sailor? Mary has spent four years warbling in the Glee Club and three years as errand girl in the office. However, this year Mary has been pro- moted to the position of Mr. Randall ' s Sec- retary and she has been a very efficient one at that. As " Joyce " , a colkiTe girl, in the Senior Play, Mary fit the part to per- fection — looks, attitude, voice and all. Mary plans to attend Simmons College and we feel sure that she will be a success. HELEN CALLAN " When anyone sees her down the street, They always take another peek. " Helen is one of these lucky girls with dark brown hair and light skin. She is plan- ning to be a stenographer and some busi- ness man will find her essential to his office. She has been assistant hockey manager for three years. She belonged to the French Club, and was on the Gift Committee. ETHEL HINDS " Is she plump? She is. All she says is, ' Gee whiz ' . " Ethel is one of the humorous girls of the class and always has a smile for everyone. She has very nice teeth and a charming manner of blushing at the most opportune times. She went out for hockey and basket- ball and was a member of the Home Eco- nomic Club, and the Senior Gift Committee. Ethel ought to make someone a nice wife but she says she ' s undecided about the future.

" At first look one would think " Biddy " a bit bashful but after the fot clears away, " Biddy " proves himself otherwise. He is an accomplished piano player and puts life into any lune, as well as being a very nice (lancer (I can see his face when he reads this!) He was a member of the SEMA- PHORE staff, French Club, Junior Prom. Hospitality Committee, and the Banquet Committee and he plans to enter the Malt- by School. DOROTHY DUNLAY " Dot " " A charming girl from the ' navy yard ' . Who ' s quite a cute drawing card. " " Dot " is the quietest girl in the class but this is an asset in her case as she intends to be a nuise and who ever likes a noisy one? We have all enjoyed having her with us for she has proved to be quite a relief from some of our irritating and " fun-lov- ing " classmates. Good luck in the future, " Dot " ! HOWARD FRANKLIN " Howie " " He hangs around the girls so fair, And is proud of his capacity for hot air. " Here ' s " Howie " , voted the class ' ladies ' man. and is he? He has the funniest giggle which suddenly bursts out at the right time and sets us all laughing. He has received a letter by managing the football team and he sure was a riot running across the iield with a pail of water. He has been in the Glee Club for two years, and in the Dra- matic Club, SEMAPHORE staff, Gradua- tion Committee, and was elected treasurer of the Sophomore Class. He hopes to attend college, so good luck, " Howie " . HELEN STATKUS " Tarzan " " Quite serious all the time. Always there to toe the line. " Called " Tarzan " because of her build, Helen is a big, husky girl, good-looking, too. Helen was a member of the French Club and the " S " Club.

She was a member of the Football and Hockey Banquet Committee, Picture Committee, and Commencement Committee, as well as the " S " Club. ANDREW NICKERSON " Nick " " A good old scout is ' Andy ' , Whose favorite is Scotcin candy. " " Nick " is one of the very few boys who can boast of not being a nuisance in every class he attends. He seems to be very stu- dious and he wants to be a mechanic. Per- haps this accounts for it, although they say that ride every morning from the wilds ox Central street is very invigorating. Is that right, " Nick " ? Anyway, outside of school hours, " Nick " casts aside his placid i lance of innocence and becomes that well-known type — a regular cave-man. We ' ll go no fur- ther, for after all — isn ' t that far enough? WOODROW MURPHY " His walk has surely got us stumped, Perhaps, when little, ;iie was bumped. " Woodrow is one of the College Group and is never seen without his brief case. He is one of these tall boys with curly hair and a few freckles and does he make a hit with t_4irls from surrounding towns? Wood- row has a paper route and, therefore, is a working man — so he tells us. He wears glasses (quite becoming), which are con- stantly on and off. He either will attend a business school or a school for embalming. ANTOINETTE GELZINIS " Anti " " Here ' s a dancer we all know, Always moving to some new row.

Page Thirty-seven THE SEMAPHORE ANTHONY WALENT " Tony " " Never call him bashful or even shy, When playing football he catches the eye. " " Tony " is a quiet fellow with light fea- tures. Stoughton ' s Baseball and Football teams owe a great deal of their success to " Tony " . For four years he has been one of the best on the baseball squad, and has three letters to prove it. " Tony " was one of the speediest and most skillful players on Stoughton High ' s Football squad for three years and has received two letters for his ability. He was a member of the " S " Club and was on the Senior Reception Com- mittee. " Tony " is undecided as to what he will do in the future. Well, whatever it is, good luck and success to him! ARTHUR PENARDI " Abou " " ' Abou ' is getting to be a sheik, Who ' ll be the next one that he ' ll meet? " " Abou " is dark and t ood-looking and has a very loud laugh. He is teacher ' s pet in Sales class. His shoulders account, in part, for the great work of the football line. He has a letter to prove it. Arthur plays in the school orchestra and was a member of the Senior Reception Committee. He is going to study music and plans to have an orchestra of his own some day. Maybe he will put Stoughton on the map with his music. Who knows? CHESTER ELIASON " Chet " " Little ' Chet ' hasn ' t much to say, Just wait until he breaks out some day. " " Chet " is a quiet boy who adores base- ball. He can out talk anyone who tries him in it. He was a well-known member of the French Club last year and his jokes are en- joyed by all. Good luck, " Chet " . HERBERT CHIPMAN " Chippy " " You never saw ' Chippy ' blue. Walking gives him something to do. " " Chippy " is another of these tall, dark, and handsome men. You know — the irre- sistible type! A certain Junior is seen with him plenty and we don ' t blame her in the least. He is quite an athlete, receiving two letters in football, and two in baseball. He was a member of the " S " Club. He is go- ing to North Carolina State College and we know he ' ll succeed. THERE ' S REAL ECONOMY IN ELECTRIC SERVICE When you add an electric refrigerator to your home equipment its use gives you the advantage of a lower rate. The same with an electric range, so that its operating cost is probably as low as for a less modern method. Complete eLactric service enables you to make the family budget go farther, with such convenience and superior results as only electric service can give. BROCKTON EDISON CO.

After a hard fought con- test they returned the losers, 25-17. Fortunately, the next game with Ran- dolph ended in a tie but Holbrook was squeezed by the Stoughton cagers in the next game with the score 21-19. This was quite an exciting game, es- pecially for the fans. Back trotted Wrentham, their hopes of winning high, only to be literally " swamped " by the Stoughton ball-toters in the last game of the season. The score ended in 16-6; good work for the win- ners, don ' t you think? Out of their ten games played, the sex- tet won four, tied one and lost five. This record shows a fairly successful season and our girls proved to be equal to their opponents at all times in fine ])laying, ability and passwork. The var- ious referees commented highly on the team ' s clean-cut playing and fine sense of sportsmanship. Under Miss Earn- shaw ' s able direction and Hazel Burns ' clever leadership (she was re-elected captain), the team will go forth next year shining brighter than ever for it loses none of its regulars by graduation.

History in brief up to ih-e Civil War.) By RUSSELL HAYDEN, ' 34 The human ra c€ upon this earth Has loved its freedom from early birth. It was given to us from Him above, Alorij with blesiings of human love. From the ancient Greeks we heard its cry, And blessed with equality, it never died. It rang from the legions of Caesar, too, While the American revolt gave England its cue. Freedom! Equality! May they never die! The torch still burns from days gone by. It flickered and sputtered in " sixty-one, " But " Abe " was there; so freedom was won. So down through the ages we ' ve carried the fight; And we looked to Him for that guiding light. We ' ve learned the lesion; its freedom now! God grant us strength to push that plow. In the year one thousand, the Norsemen set sail For Vinland and Greenland — so runs their tale. It was the beginning of finding new lands; It was the foundation of Colu mbus ' plan. The Portugese next braved the waters un- known ; And added knowledge to the seeds that were sown. They showed the way to the Cape of Good Hope, And started the bei lnning of the dis- coverers ' rope. Columbus ' ideas were based on the Greeks, While a short route to India he did seek. The world was round, he often had said. No one believed; he Avas jeered at instead. The discovery of America was important, indeed, And its rapid growth was like a weed. It grew from a wilderness to a nation su- preme ; It formed the nucleus of our present realm. England took the coast-line and settled there, France took Canada, though it seemed bare, Spain took Florida and the whole western coast, Although it was the French who desired It most. Then England went to war with despotic France ; Conquered the Mississippi and took Can- ada by chance. England ' s empire was now on its way. But it failed to see that impending day. Taq Sugar Act of eighteen sixty-four Wa; one of the reasons at rebellion ' s door. For God alone knew what was to come Until they heard the roar of guns. The British policy had begun to change; Now their reasons were obviously plain. It was to force the payment of their wars Ujjon the Colonists by way of their laws. The people rebelled; and Tie fight was on! It started in Lexington on an early morn. When the British arrived to arrest for treason, John Hancock and Adams, the leaders for freedom. The struggle ended in seventeen eighty-one. But not before our independence was won. The Colonists we. ' e now the United States; Thus the fourth of July we commemorate. Th e trials and hardships of our early land Under its own and i uiding hand, Was indeed the problem of early days, But through it all they were not dis- mayed. God be praised for those worthy men Who kept our Colonies three and ten, On their way — to the path of right, Until theii goal came into sight. Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Page Forty-one THE SEMAPHORE This was a time when their spirit was there, This was a time when it took g reat care. The ship of state was at last on its way, And its course was straight across the bay. The bay of equality, freedom, and right Kept its waters calm, for that ship so light. So it sailed to freedom in rising sun, As we shall see before we ' re done. War with England was again proc laimed. And the fight for freedom was on again. We fought for freedom upon the seas. Thus gaining a greater liberty. By means of all our money next, The Louisiana territory we soon annexed. The war with Mexico added still more. While British arguments were at our door. The Orci on country was our next case, Claimed by Great Britain and the United States. " Fifty-four forty or else we ' ll fight, " But for all the talk, it was settled all right. Soon the nation was torn by strife, When Civil War took many a life. The torch flamed low and then feebly grew. As the North saw victory and hopes were renewed. Freedom lives and never will die. The torch still burns up in the sky; It carries the hopes of future years; It gives the people their courage and cheer. FREEDOM and EQUALITY go hand in hand Throughout the width of our good land.
