To the Seniors : A ' e. the Senior Class, chose as our motto. " Life is what you make it. " Re- member this, classmates, as you go out into a cold and unfriendly world to try and make your living. Keep this in your mind when you are discouraged and dis- heartened, and let nothing and nobodv change it or make you forget it. You will perhaps not, unless you are lucky, be able to secure the kind of employ- ment you want to do. But while you are working in some inferior job be- cause of necessity, do not forget that you are going higher. Fix your mind on a goal and work towards this un- ceasingly. Do not stray from the path you have planned out, for then it is much Page Four harder to get back on again. Brush each obstacle out of your way and if you can ' t do this walk around it. but in the right direction. Believing in yourself is half of the battle, so whatever your mistakes have been remember them only long enough to correct them. Make each day count and you will be a success, if you remember and believe, " Life is what you make it. " To the Teachers : We want to thank you for your inter- est shown us. We appreciate the hard work you have done, and hope that the associations with our Senior Class have been as pleasant for you as they have been for us.

" HAZEL BURNS Cute, petite, and active describes Hazel to a T. She was captain of the Basketball team. She is our Class Secretary. She is a member of the Semaphore Staff and be- sides this she has been on many coimmittees, and belonged to many clubs. ANNE TUMONIS Anne is our star athlete. She has play- ed Basketball four years and Hockey three. She is on the Class Gifts Committee. She is an attractive blonde and well-liked. JOSEPH WALENT Joe has a lot of humor tucked up his sleeve which he only displays occasionally but it is worth waiting for. He is on the Class Gifts Committee. SAMUEL WALLACE Sammy always has a pocket full of wise cracks. He shines] at League meetings, where, as an orator he is very impressive, excepting when the wanderlust igets the best of him. SAMUEL CONNELL Sam, it seems, has a secret yen to be a bartender, which we never would have sus- pected for he certainly does not look the part. MARJORIE FAY Marjiorie is quite a girl. She provides us with lots of fun for she is just too funny. Lnagine her embarrassment when she came to school without her eyehrows one morning. Patronize Semaphore Advertisers KENNETH DONAHUE " Kenny " is our Class President. He has played Baseball for four years and was the captain this year. He played Basketball for three years. He is President of the Art Club, and Art Editor on the Sema- phore. He has also been a member of numerous committees. He is very dis- tinijuished looking, at least lots of the giiis think so. ALFRED CHESTNUT When " Alfie " isn ' t losing wind in orches- tra practice he is out| on the diamond chasing flies. As that husky mystery man on the Basketball team of the Masked Mar- vels, " Chesty " made a big hit. STANLEY BETTONEY " Stan " has gained recognition on both the gridiron and diamond, but we remem- ' ber him as the high-light of the track meet held when he was a Sophomore. His jumping and running were unsurpassed. ROBERT LEAHY " Bob " Leahy has a good eye as pitcher on the Baseball team, as forward on the Basketball team and in lining up the red- heads. " Bo ' b ' s " grin and contagious laugh have spoiled many a teacher ' s unflinching discipline. STEVEN SIMANAVICH " Stevie " carries off ' honors on the Foot- ball field, Baseball diamond and at Basket- ball. He is known to us as " Percy " of Senior Play fame, and although he couldn ' t handle " Dolday, " perhaps it was just because she wasn ' t the right girl. (How about it, " Bro " ?) Page Five THE SEMAPHORE WESTLEY COULTER " Naturally " Westley is an active mem- (ber of the Dramatic Club. He is a char- ter member of the Orchestra. " Basil " in- tends to be a teacher. (Remember your lown school days and don ' t be too hard on the kids.) BERNARD JATUL We all knew that " Bernie " excelled in his studies but it wasn ' i until the night of the Senior Play that we discovered a hid- den talent. In the part of an elderly " Romeo " he was superb as " Uncle Jerome. " WILLIAM HOWES " Bill " is going to be a psychologist. At least he ' s getting a good start; not only by studying the mind but — does he pay at- tention to the wavey tresses of a certain iblue-eyed brunette. In more serious mo- ments, he keeps the Dramatic Club under control. (As President.) WILLIAM DIBBERN " Wild Bill " is rather serious but abso- lutely enjoys a certain game known as Foiotball. " Winnie " just loves Football heroes; consequently, " Bill " goes over ' big at Brockton Hedghts. He plans to be a teacher. ARTHUR RADVILAS Take a deep breath — here goes: Base- ball, 1, 2, 3, 4; Football, 2, 3, 4 (Captain); Basketball, 2, 3, 4 (Co-Captain); Student Council, 1 ; Junior Prom, Junior Ring and Graduation Committees, as well as being a Class Historian. We ' ll be following your career in the newspapers, " Art " . ALICE BOLIN " Lisa " has served capably on the Sema- phoi-e staff for four years. In our Senior year, she has won deserving praise as a very efficient Editor-in-Chief. Her spontaneous, enthusiastic personality has made her a welcome member of many clubs. President of the Senior f ' rench Club and " Daphne " of the Senior Play. BARBARA TWOMBLY Barbara was President of the Glee Club in her Senior year, and Treasurer for three years of the Dramatic Club. She has also been active in many other clubs and on many committees. She will be remembered as " Dolda " in the Senior Play. Funny how one always thinks of Alfred in con- nection with Barbara. EARL WAHL Earl ' s dancing ability plus hisj pleasant personality makes a perfect combination. (Ask Daffy.) He has also the soul of an artist; Art Club second and third years. RONALD BARTLETT " Bart " has gained fame for S. H. S. as being unusually clever " on the mound " . He is Chairman of our Banquet Committee and in his Junior year decorated the hall for Prom, and speaking of decorations, you all probably know that " Bart " thinks a certain red-head it just " it " . RICHARD DRAKE " Richie " is quite a heart breaker. Won- der what the magnetic drawing powers of Sharon hold for him? He was an active member of the Science Club as a Freshman and has been in the Camera Club during his Senior year. ALLAN BEALE Allan is one of the class musicians, and perhaps some day we ' ll all be playing or singing his music. Allan must have a " magnetic personality " ; anyhow, we can ' t keep track of his " affairs, " which change as quickly as the weather. LOUISE WERESKA Louise has been a very busy lady. She was our Vice-President, 2, 3; member of Student Council, 2, 3. She has belonged to numerous clubs and committees. She received letters in Basketball and Hockey. It seems that " Rus " is interested in her work, too. GORDON FULLER Gordon is a fellow we known very little about, but we do know he loves to roller- skate. Banquet Committee. Page Six Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL ALFRED TIRELIS " Al " is another star athlete and has served on many committees: Junior Prom Decoration, Junior Ring, and Graduation, lie never misses recess dancing and I ' ll bet we know the reason. He is one of the fel- lows who " specialize. " DOROTHY CUNNINGHAM Dorothy has dark, curly hair and dark eyes. She has belonged to the French and Dramatic Clubs and is a member of the School Gift Committee. A blonde has found her dark hair very attractive. CARMEN URCIUOLI Carmen was our Sophomore President. He was Marshal at Junior Prom. He will give us some of our History at the Banquet. He has practically run the State Theatre for these past years and we hope he will some day be the manager. MARY ERASER Mary is a very tiny girl with a very tiny voice. We often see her behind the lunch counter. She is on the Reception Commit- tee. CHARLES EVERETT " Charlie " has gone out for Football, Basketball, and Sim ng. He is a member of the Commencement Committee. He thinks the Freshmen are very nice. JOSEPH KELLEHER " Jobo " has not been with us very long and seems to be very quiet. Please note the " seems to be " . Banquet Committee. WILLIAM DEADY " Bill " is a good-looking blonde with little to say. The Reception Committee claims him. LAWRENCE BISBEE Lawrence always seems to be a busy lad managing something or other. He seems to be quite a ladies ' man from all the reports received. Patronize Semaphore Advertisers GEORGE IVERSON George is the blonde, good-looking fel- low with the rosy cheeks. He was on the Motto Committee and Dramatic Club. Class Gifts Committee. His scholastic record has been very good, indeed. ROBERT BENSON Robert must have some deep, dark secret in his life, because he doesn ' t want any- thing said about him in the Semaphore. Maybe he thinks he is a little too good for us. ANNA SPILLANE Anna is a very attractive blue-eyed miss whom everybody is very busy bumming rides from because she has her car with her very often. She doesn ' t mind much for she is very good-natured. THOMAS ' Mccormick " Scotty " is a dark, serious fellow whom everybody has a good word for. He is on the Reception Committee. JOHN OLDSMAN We all get a kick out of " Hymie " . He was Sports Editor for the boys on the Sem- aphore. His big-gest trouble seems to con- sist in doing what he is told. ARTHUR PENTZ Pentz is our " He-Man " with a capital H. He has played Baseball, Basketball, and Football. He is in the orchestra. He is a good-natured fellow that everyone likes. It ' s a deep, dark secret what he uses to curl his hair with. JOHN SEBA " Johnnie " is a nice chap. Our only ob- jection to him is that he seems to like the Sharon i rls better than the Stoughton ones. JOHN CASSIDY John is a quiet fellow, but he is absolute- ly tongue-tied when it comes to speaking to a girl. We wonder why? He is on the Reception Committee.

STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL JOSEPH LISOWSKI " Joe " is a natural born clown. He al- ways has some joke up his sleeve. He is a member of the Reception Committee. MARY KEARNS We hear that Mary is a wild and wooly driver of a beach-wagon, but she doesn ' t understand much about what makes it run. Mary is on the Reception Committee. ANTHONY CARRARA " Tony " to us, if you please. He played Football and Basketball. He is very good mimicking and his flashing smile and snap- py eyes are fun to watch. JOHN McGRATH " Johnnie " has nice, dark, curly hair and the one thing he seems to like is Freshmen. He is on the Banquet Committee. CHARLES PELLAND Charles is a quiet fellow who likes to draw and has some ability in that line. He is on the Banquet Committee. MARJORIE CURRIE Marjorie excels in being absent. We never know when we will see her. She is a member of the Banquet Committee. CHARLES McEWAN Charles doesn ' t seem to do many things but he always has a laugh ready at some joke. He is a member of the Commence- ment Committee. CHARLES KIMTIS Kimtis, as he always seems to be called, is a dark, good-looking fellow with nothing to say. He is assisting on the Commence- ment Committee. GRACE DEAN " Grade ' s " pet habit, to the disgust of her sister, is wearing her clothes. " Gracie " is full of fun, morning, noon and night. HENRY IVERSEN Henry seems to be the opposite from his brother, but he is a regular fellow just the same. It ' s a good thintj that " Gigi " isn ' t on the Commencement Committee with Henry, because they might have a brother- ly row. MARCELLA KUNIGENAS Marcella has not been with us the four years, but we like her very much. She does very neat work in notebooks, projects and such. Have you seen the ring she wears on her left hand? CLAUDIA HART Claudia has been a member of the Glee Club, Hiking Club, French Club, Ring Com- mittee, Prom Committee, and Class Prophe- cy Committee, so she has kept herself very busy. Her smile has been pleasing to many a boy. BARBARA WINSHIP Barbara is the girl who has worked down in the office and helped keep things going. She is a member of the French Club and the Reception Committee. Here is a girl who loves to chat and whom we love to lis- ten to. ARTHUR LINDELOF Arthur stands out from a crowd because of his light, fair haii , which tells one and all where he hails from. He is on the Ban- quet Committee. Arthur is frequently seen driving a certain " Mary " around. RICHARD FARRELL Richard is a well-known figure around scho ' ol. His life consists of just one big event after another, or shall we say scrape? He played the " black sheep of the family " in the Senior Play. He is the Business Manager of this magazine. JEANETTE DUNKERLY We rememiber Jeanette for her work in Hockey (Captain in 1933). and Basketball. She belongs to the Dramatic and Handi- craft Club and is alsio on the Semaphore staff. She used to think League meetings were just grand. Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Page Nine THE SEMAPHORE MAYBELLE HADLEY Maybelle is another South Stoughton girl with a very nice smile. She is a member of the Commencement Committee. JOSEPH ABRIL " Joe " is the boy chosen as our Ivy Ora- tor. He was our Junior Class President. He has been on many committees and is well-liked by the members of his class for his gocd-nature. ARTHUR BOUTELIER Arthur is a boy we hear very little from. He seems to take very little interest in any of the school activities. He is on the Ban- quet Committee. WARREN ffXOWDALE Warren played the part of the solemn and dignified minister in our Senior Play. He is a member of the Commencement Committee. GEORGE PAPPADEMETROPOULOS George has played Baseball, Football, and Basketball. He is on the Banquet Com- mittee. " Pappie " has made many a girl ' s heart beat a little faster with his good looks. FRANCIS VINSKUS Francis is the fellow we have trusted all our money with. He seems to have taken good care of it, though. We all, perhaps, have had experience with him when he has hounded us for money, monev money, dur- ing his three years as Class Treasurer. RICHMONTD ELIASON Richmond is a boy who doesn ' t believe much in clubs. His membership consisted of two years in Glee Club. They say red hair is very appealing to him. CHARLES GUSHING " Charlie " is the man who is the biggest woman-hater of the class. At least, that is what he claims. His droll remarks are something to look forward to hearing, for they are very funny. Page Ten ADOLPH BONDA Adolph may be small in statue but he has lots of pep and spirit. Have you noticed what a deep voice he has? FRANCES JONES " Ba;be " is a member of many clubs. She has played Basketball and Hockey. She always has a " wisecrack " present. ROBERTA MacCOMBIE She has belonged to Glee Club, Handi- craft Club, Athletic Club. Banquet Com- mittee. We hope she gets her wish to train as a nurse in the Deaconness Hospital, be- cause we are sure her prettiness will help many a sick person. MARY DEE French Club, 3, 4; Dramatic Club, 2, 3, 4; Junior Ring Committee, Junior Prom, Or- chestra, Gi ' aduation Committee, Prophecy Committee, Vice-President, 4. Her acting did justice to the leading lady ' s part in the Senior Play. BERYL HOLMES What a mean sock Beryl has in Gym. She can hit a ball harder than most girls car. It must be the South Stoughton air. Beryl is very interested in a certain " Billy " . MARY DALY Mary is another Stock Room girl. S e specializes in. clubs and committees. She is one of the Class Historians. Her club work has not kept her from being on the Honor Roll considerably. ALICE SELANSKY Alice has, so to speak, held the office down for Mr. Randall. We found an un- suspected talent of hers in the Senior Play, when she showed us just w-hat a beautiful vamp she could be. MARION BEARSE Marion lives way up in the wilds of South Stoughton. Marion was a member of the Art Club in her Sophomore year and is a member of the Handicraft Club this year. Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOQGHTON HIGH SCHOOL RUTH SOUSA Ruth is a petite girl who is very viva- cious. She was Property Manager in the Senior Play and kept the tennis rackets straightened out. She has been a member of the Glee Club for four years. MARGERY COOPER Margery is one of the tall, slender, dark girls. She was a member of the Glee Club and Art Club. Commencement Committee. Her rosy cheeks are the envy of the rest of the girls, who have to buy theirs. ANNA MARIE CHAPMAN Marie played Hockey for four years. She also belongs to the Handicraft Club. She just can ' t understand why one needs to know so much about History. LILLIAN KAMINSKY Lillian belonged to the Glee Club for the first three years. She managed the Hock- ey team in her Sophomore year. Com- mencement Committee. Lillian ' s quietness disappears outside of school. EDNA CASHEN Edna is a very busy girl, occupied with many cluibs. She is President of the Handi- craft Club and the Vice-President of the Glee Club. Besides this she has b€en on many committees. She firmly declares this is a free country. HELEN HARDING The old saying that " good things come wrapped up in small packages " is certainly true of Helen. She is very talented and has devoted much time to her art. But she has still had time for belonging to many clubs. Funny how blondes attract blondes. HELEN FLYNN Helen is the girl who can hammer a type- writer. How that girl can go. She be- longed to the French Cluh and is on the Banquet Committee. EVELYN SMALL Evelyn hasn ' t much to say or do. She is very quiet. She is on the Commencement Committee. RUTH TROW Ruth wants to go to Trade School and we hope that she can. She has belonged to the Glee Club, French Club, and Handicraft Club. Commencement Committee. RUTH BELL Ruth has belonged to French Club and is on the Reception Committee. She used to be very interested in North Easton, but maybe her interest has waned by now. LUCILLE S ' TONE Lucille is a pretty, dark member of the Handicraft Club, which teaches her to make many attractive clothes. FLORENCE DeLUOA Florence has belonged to the Glee Club, French Club, Dramatic Club, and Hiking Club. She is a member of the Graduation Committee. We remember her for the long reports she gave in History room memory. EDNA MAHONEY French Club and Dramatic Club h ive had Edna as their member. School Gift Committee. She is another of our quiet girls who is seldom heard from. MARY MeSWEENEY Senior Plav Committee, Dramatic Club, Handicraft Club, Reception Committee. It seems that a certain blonde is seeing a great deal of Mary. ROSEMARY MAHER Rosemary won the $5 prize for the essay given by the American Legion. Besides this, she has found time to belong to many clubs, and work in the library. MARGUERITE HUMPHREY Marguerite lives way up in the sticks of North Stoughton, but she seems to think it is pretty nice there. Of course, there is a reason for everything. Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Page Eleven THE SEMAPHORE ELEANOR MOSMAN Glee Club, Handicraft Club, and French Club have all been attended by Eleanor. Commencement Committee. Her crocheted things have been the envy of all of the " gals " . EDITH KETTEXDORF Edith has only been with us a short time, but has managed to belong to a great many clubs. She had the responsible part of the prompter in the Senior Play. BARBARA HINDS Barbara hasn ' t much to say but she has belonged to the Art and Glee Clubs and has played Hockey and Basketball in her Freshman year. RUTH BERKOVITZ " Ruthie " was the Property Manager of the Senior Play. She is on the Banquet Committee and has belonged to numerous clubs throughout her four yeai ' 3. She can almost talk as fast as Floyd Gibbons. MARY RUGGERIO She is one of the quietest girls of our class. The little we know of her we like. She belonged to the Hiking Club in her Freshman year, and is a member of the Banquet Committee. MARY REVNOFF Mary ' s great accomplishment consists of keeping her hair in perfect order. It speaks Avell for its care. She has played Hockey and Basketball, and belongs on the Com- mencement Committee. LORRAINE PHILLIPS Lorraine is our greatest chatterbox. She is always full of ne .vs and fun. Her gi-eat- est joy in life is to find a good argument and proceed from then onward. We like to call her " Flips " . HELENE MADDEN Helene is an ' ther of our quiet, good- looking girls. She has found time to be- long to many clubs. HELEN LUTTED We all heard that Helen w-as in the Senio r Play, but she was quite a shock to us when we saw her in the get-up of " Aunt Olivia " . She did the part perfectly. She plans to go to Bridgewater Normal and become another " schoolmar ' m " . MARION KEMP Marion has belonged to the Glee Club (President, 3), French Club, Dramatic Club, and Hiking Club. Her giggle is fam- ous throu jhout school. EFFIE ZUMAS Effie has played industriously in the or- chestra. We wonder when the big day will be, for we hear she has a hope chest. MARGARET LANIGAN Mai ' garet is one of the Stock Room igirls. She seems to specialize in clubs, for she is a member of five of them. Class Ode Words by LOUISE WERESKA We are leaving our Alma Mater, We are leaving our comrades and friends, We are stepping with gi-eat hopes forward On the road t .at never ends. Hardships we ' ll strive to conquer, And though the path is thorny with strife, We will seek for the silver lining And try to find the sunny side of life. In the future that lies before us. Life ' s harvest may often seem small, But we ' ll struggle against temptation And we will sidestep fate ' s pitfalls; Fortune may oft ' befriend us. And when we answer His last call, Then we can say that our lives were worthy For we were happy and helpful toward all.

Page Sixteen Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL " A Wee Bit of Scotch " " Old Man " MacTavish, as he was so often called by the people familiar with his slight, straight body limping up the rows of benches at various dog shows, was whistling softly to himself as he understandingly scratched the ear of a black terrier standing in front of him on the old scarred table. He always whistled when he was happy, the happier he was, the softer the whistle. The whistle was very, very, soft now, for you see he was very, very happy. The dog wagged his tail gaily. He also was happy, for he knew what that soft whistle signified. Many times had he heard that when he had been especially obedient or clever. It usually was fol- lowed by some choice bit for the dog and this was the case now, for Scotch Hill Whiskey, of Scotch Hill Kennel, was presently chewing on a biscuit, mys- teriously emerging from the vast depths of his master ' s pocket. Whiskey could never understand how those pockets could hold so many things. Stored away were various things. There was a num- berless amount of small biscuits for Whiskey, which he received on good be- havior ; a great amount of combs, tweez- ers, clippers, trimmers, brushes, a col- lar or two, and the same amount of leads mixed happily together. He mar- veled at the ease with which his master was able to fish a required object out. A leash now appeared and was snapped on Whiskey ' s collar. This meant a run in the exercising pen. Whiskey trotted gayly down the stairs and sneezed hap- ])ily while MacTavish unlatched the gate. There were only two dogs there so Whiskey ' s lead was taken of¥ and he was allowed to roam around at will. MacTavish grinned in anticipation of what he knew might happen. Whiskey was an exceptionally friendly Scotty. but woe to man or beast who did not appeal to him. MacTavish on see- ing that these three were going to get along, strolled up the stairs to seek out some of the old cronies and talk over the events of the preceding day. He had much to say. Had Whiskey not won " Best of Breed " yesterday? Here it was the second day of the big three-day show and he had nothing to do today but tramp around and tell of the wonders of his W ' hiskey. Tomorrow there would be much to do. First, Whiskey would be entered in " Best of Terriers " and then, provided he won, which MacTavish was sure he would, he would compete for " Best in Show " . Ah ! Softly he began to whistle. His W hiskey " Best of Show " . This was his highest dream. His and Whiskey ' s dream, for had they not confidentially whispered and nodded their heads to- gether over this over many a fire, and under many a moon. He had whispered to Whiskey how proud he would be and Whiskey had understandingly nodded his head, for of course he understood. A silent promise had been exchanged and since then, they had both tried their best to keep it. MacTavish had combed, trimmed, plucked, oiled, and performed all of the other necessary operations to make W hiskey appear at his best. WHiiskey had cheerfully and patiently stood for all this, although there was much of it he did not enjoy too well. But had they not been rewarded greatly for their patience? For Whiskey was now at his best, and Whiskey at his best was good enough. MacTavish whistled softer still as he remembered how Whiskey ' s square terrier face looked squarer still for the long, firm whiskers at each corner of the black muzzle. His small, dark, hazel eyes glistened like ripe huckleberries in the bright summer sun. His short, straight legs carried him to " Best of Breed, " yesterday, while his tail gayly Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Page Seventeen THE SEMAPHORE waved its banner of victory. Yes, most decidedly, Whiskey at his best, was good enough. A shadow crossed MacTavish ' s face. If only Oh. well — what was the use? A fellow can ' t have everything. Everything to AlacTavish would mean W hiskey winning " Best of Show " while Edith watched them " strut their stuff " . But there was no Edith to watch and the sooner he became accustomed to it the better it would be for him. Edith had left him seven months previous, her only explanation being, " I take sec- ond place to nobody. " She had then gone on to explain that they were in the dog business she knew, but when MacTavish took the $3,000 that they had in the bank and had gone and bought a five months old puppy that he was going to make a " world beater " , she couldn ' t understand him at all. As if this hadn ' t been enough money to spend, he had proceeded to buy every- thing for that dog. He must be fed special food. He needed sun baths. He simply must have yeast, tomato, etc. To top it all off, lacTavish had insisted on spending three hours every day to train the dog to carry himself properly in the ring. After much sputtering, her frugal nature had got over the shock or at least MacTavish had thought so. W hiskey and she had become good friends. Alany a romp they had had to- gether by the lake neatly tucked away l:ehind their house. She had taken him for his first swimming lesson here at the age of eight months. Happily they had run home and she had told him about the cute antics Whiskey had gone through. During her recital, Whiskey had promptly proceeded to roll on his back and turn somersaults to show how pleased he was. with himself, and the rest of the world. But — MacTavish sighed, as he rememibered the change that had gradually come over her. No longer did Whiskey take his puppy woes and joys to her, for he had experienced many a slap for things that before had been rewarded with a smile. Consequent- ly, he hugged his woes to himself and moped around the house. Edith had be- come cross and irritable, which added more to Whiskey ' s discomfort. Finally, MacTavish had pleaded with her to change her tactics with the dog or she would ruin his show prospects. This was the occasion when she had packed and left and not a word had they heard from her. Whiskey and he had turned to each other for comfort. MacTavish had spent all of his spare moments on Whiskey. Whiskey must win in order to lessen the ache in MacTavish ' s heart. As these thoughts flew through his mind he decided not to hunt up his cronies but to go down and see how Whiskey was making out. A smile crossed his face and he limped down the last step and crossed the floor over to the pen. He looked into the pen but could see no sturdy little figure running around. " The little bum, " he thought. " I bet he is taking a snooze in the cor- ner behind that pole. " MacTavish crept softly over but no Whiskey lay out- stretched there. His heart missed a beat. Could Whiskey have gotten out through the gate? He climbed the stairs as fast as his bad leg would permit him. There were two young fellows standing at the top of the stairs. " You haven ' t by any chance seen a Scotty running around up here, have you ? " " Xo, have you lost one? " " The little bum has sneaked out of the pen downstairs and has disappeared. ' ' " Sorry, Mister, we ' ve been here for quite a while but we have not seen him. ' ' " Thanks. " Their last remark had frightened him. Where could he have gone. He searched through the hall. His frantic question was answered in the negative. He sent a clear, loud whistle through the build- Page Eighteen Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL ing. Surely Whiskey would answer that, if he heard it. If he heard it, yes, but with 2,000 dogs all making individual noises, it would be hard to hear it. He became frantic. The perspiration rolled down his red, good-natured face as he went up and down every row searching in every bench. There were dogs, dogs, and more dogs. There were white ones, black ones, brown ones, red ones, gray ones, and spotted ones, but there was no Whiskey. A sob rose in his throat as he called in a tear-filled voice, " Whiskey, old man, don ' t play hide-go-seek any more. " His search was of no avail. He re- ported it to the office and it was an- nounced over the loud speaker. People were asked to report there immediate- ly if a black terrier was found answer- ing to the name of Whiskey. MacTav- ish haunted the office all morning but no word was heard about Whiskey. A third, and still a fourth time, he search- ed through the row of benches. The growing fear that had been in his heart now became a certainty. Whiskey hadn ' t gotten out on his own accord. Someone had taken him. But who? He strolled aimlessly through the halls all afternoon. Many sympathetic glances were cast his way. for by now the story of Whiskey ' s disappearance was well known. All of them knew how he must feel for they all had dogs of their own. They couldn ' t quite realize the terrible empty feeling in his heart, however, for few men are as close to their dogs as MacTavish was to Whiskey. In one of his wanderings he heard his name paged. His hope rose. It must be something about Whiskey. Frantically he tore open the note. But at the con- tents his face blanched. This is what the note said : " Unless you pay us $1,500 by ten o ' clock tomorrow, your dog will not be returned to you. If you want him to be in the show pay us the money. We will inform you later in the day where to place it. Don ' t notify the police. It w do you no good and your dog will be killed. " Poor MacTavish. $1500! They might as well have asked for ten times that. His last cents had gone into Whiskey. Where could he get the money. He knew nobody could get him this sum by ten in the morning. Frantically he racked his brain, but to no avail. He simply knew of no way to get this money. Wearily he trod out of the hall. He must go some place to be alone where he could think. He steered his course up the stairs to the balcony, where he sat down. Judging was going on down in the various rings, but he saw and heard none of it. All he could see was $1500 that he could not get. ' hat would they do to Whiskey? They wouldn ' t — he just couldn ' t finish the thought. Here he sat all afternoon. Waiting, yet dreading the second paging he knew he would get. It came. This message told him to wrap the money in an old paper bag and put it under the twentieth seat in row 53. He would afterwards find Whiskey downstairs in the pen, where he had been taken from. He was not to try any funny business because the dog ' s life would be the consequence. ' earily, MacTavish folded the note and thrust it into his pocket. He went down- stairs, secured his coat and started for his hotel. He called his friends as a last resort and tried to borrow money, but although they would like to. all he possibly could secure, when he sorrowfully figured it out, was about $510. This would do him no good. So he gratefully thanked them for their kind offers and went to bed. He was up at seven in the morning, hoping some last minute suggestion or idea would help him. He tried the loan offices but as he had no security they could not help him. He trudged wearily to the show. He secured a seat in the Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Pagre Nineteen THE SEMAPHORE front row of the balcony. He might as well see the whole show he thought for it would undoubtedly be his last one. He gazed down into the ring and noticed that " Best Terrier " was now being picked. The stewards were calling the numbers of those who were to be in the ring. A sharp, burning hurt ran through his heart, when he heard number 455 be- ing called repeatedly. There would be no hiskey gaily strutting into the ring while ] IacTavish limped behind him pushing this number up on his left fore- arm. Xever again would Whiskey ' s gay tail wave its victorious way through a show. At the thought of this, a tear streaked unheeded down his brown cheek. Xever again would he wake up in the night to have a black nose thrust into his neck, inquiring what was the matter. There would be no mor e vocab- ulary lessons, as he had laughingly call- ed them, for there would be no more W hiskey to gaze adoringly up into his face and bark sharply when he was asked, " Do you love me? " The night- ly hide-and-seek game was forever over. Xo more would ' hiskey squeeze behind the dresser or under the bath tub to wait patiently until he was found and given his reward. The Sunday walk would no longer be a sacred rite, for it was Whiskey ' s gay scamperings through the bushes and his short, comical barks at birds that made his Sunday walk some- thing to look forward to. Xext Christ- mas would not be like last year. Whiskey had proudly consented to wear a red rib- bon for this special occasion. At least he had worn it half a day. He had play- fully pulled it off after that. There would be no stocking hanging there with odd-shaped Lundles addressed to Whiskey from Santa Claus. It had all been so silly and little-boyish, but ' Sla.c- Tavish now realized that it was the only thing that had kept him from breaking down after Edith ' s desertion. He had been so intent on his sad thoughts that he had not noticed a Page Twenty woman carrying a dog hurriedly into the ring and looking intently around. She spoke to the the judge and stewards and seemed to be pleading with them for something. The dog had meanwhile squatted down in the middle of the ring and a more woeful looking sight one could never imagine. His coat was spattered with mud. His tail hung de- jectedly between his legs and his ears drooped sorrowfully. The judge held up his hand and announced in a large, strong voice. " If Mr. MacTavish of Scotch Hill Kennels is in the audience, will he please come here immediately? " Slowly. MacTavish raised his head. Suddenly his eye lighted on the dog and he let out a yell that could be heard throughout the hall. The dog pricked up his ears and his tail gave a hopeful little wag. ] IacTavish raced down the stairs, three at a time. He pushed aside the curious staring people. He hurried- ly told the steward. " I ' m 455. man. get that number card, I ' m 455. " The man placed the number on his arm and he ran into the ring. A most pathetic scene followed. The terrier leaped with a bark into the out- stretched arms. His panting tongue licked the brown tear drenched face frantically, while weak moans came from his throat. The judge ' s voice commanding, " Walk around. " broke into their happy re- union. MacTavish fished into his pock- ets and brought out a collar and a lead with a quickness that asrain surprised Whiskey. He snapped it on and led Whiskey to the end of the line. Here he knelt for a minute or two. his stiff legs stretched out behind him. A quick search in his pocket produced a cloth and a comb. He hurriedly brushed oflF the mud and ran the comb through the black, wiry coat. Then with a dash they were going around the ring with the others. Whiskey ' s tail waved gayly as he proudly stepped around the ring. His eyes shone like stars, while his red Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL tongue hung trembling out of his mouth. MacTavish forgot the people, the judge, the show. All he could remember was that his Whiskey was here again, proud- ly leading the way for MacTavish to fol- low. The judge ' s voice again commanded, " Set them up. " The circle stopped. Each man bent down to display his dog ' s best points. MacTavish ' s stifT knee again was laid straight out on the floor while he placed Whiskey. His months of practice were now brought out. After the first set- up, W hiskey stiffened like a statue. He held his head proudly. His tail extend- ed straight and stiff, but he could not withhold the happy quiver in it. The judge, needless to say, placed Whiskey first, while MacTavish proudly extend- ed his hand for the ribbon. During their happy reunion, they had both completely forgotten the woman. But as he walked out of the ring, Mac- Tavish noticed her standing there with outstretched hand to congratulate him. Ignoring the hand, MacTavish bent down and kissed the happy, quivering mouth. Neither spoke a word. They walked slowly out to Whiskey ' s bench. Here the woman sat down weakly and wiped her eyes, while MacTavish loudly blew his nose. After the first happy re- union, MacTavish had forgotten to ask Edith where she had found Whiskey. Ex- planations now tumbled out. While she softly stroked his head, she told how she had planned to come over to the show, this morning. On her way, at an inter- section, she had noticed a Scotty stand- ing bewildered in the street. Applying her brakes, she stopped her car. Imagine her surprise when she had recognized a very much bigger and trimmer Whiskey. He had crawled into her lap and weakly licked her hand while she had taken him there. She knew that he was to be en- tered in the ring for " Best of Terriers " so that is why she went directly there. From then on she had watched the judg- ing. She tearfully explained to her hus- band that she had made a fool out of herself and would be glad to come back to Whiskey and him if they wanted her. Without consulting ' Whiskey, MacTav- ish gave her the answer without any words. He told her of Whiskey ' s dis- appearance and of the two notes he had received. His voice broke anew as he told her of his dispair in not being able to secure the ransom money. After much talk, the pair decided to take Whiskey down to the exercising pen. You can be sure that they stayed there this time and watched him. That night at ten o ' clock. Whiskey and MacTavish were again in the ring. This time it was to pick " Best Dog of Show. " The following morning newspapers all over New England carried the pic- ture of Whiskey standing proudly at his best, while MacTavish was receiving the $500 prize with a broad grin on his face. The picture carried under it the story of the dog ' s disappearance and finding. The only explanation that could be offered was that Whiskey had in some manner escaped from his kidnappers. MacTav- ish was never able to find out the story behind it, and he had to be content with having his " wee bit of Scotch " back with him. Content he was, for Edith, Whiskey, and he had many fields to con- quer. —A. BOLIN.

De Soto, La Salle, Vespucci, and Drake; Where now lie they, their fame so great? II In the laps of their gods, they sit today, And watch this land, with freedom lay. In peaceful, contented, sweet repose, While the rest of the world in despair rolls. Ill The Pilgrims came, three centuries ago, To have a new freedom of heart and soul. They fought the Indians and braved the cold. To have that freedom, to us so old. IV They settled the North and the Southland, too, And never complained as this great land grew. They fought the French, and Indians, too, To show Great Britain that they were true. V And when Great Britain a tyrant became, The colonists did not like the game. But the spirit of " 76 " was on hand. To give freedom control, in this great land. VI In the six years that followed, the prospect looked dark. As freedom was smothered, all but a spark. That spark kept glowing and on one bright day. It burst into flame, and went roaring away. VII Snatching Burgoyne from Great Britain ' s mouth. And the victories over Cornwallis, in the South, Ended the war, with freedom on high, To burn on forever, and never to die. VIII The years sped on, with freedom on top. Until Great Britain our ships must stop. And then to the tune of the cannons ' roar. Our fight with Great Britain was on once more. Page Twenty-two om DIBBERN IX Great Britain with all her strength and might. Had no chance, with freedom, the cause for fi ht. For America fought with might and main.

Show that freedom, is still full of life. XI " Fifty-fcur — Forty or Fight, " The slogan that showed America ' s might. When Great Britain had plans. For our great Northwestern lands. XII In June of the year " 46 " , A treaty, at last, with Great Britain was fixed. It set the boundary of Oregon, And ended hard feelings that had lasted so long. XIII In this year of " 46 " , Freedom took a few more tricks; When Texas rose in all her wrath. And drove Old Mexico from her path. XIV " Remember the Alamo, " was our cry. When we fought the Mexicans, and made them fly. Then Texas became, to our great delight, Another state, to add to our might. XV From " 49 " to " 59 " , the United States was caJm, And throughout all the world, she wielded a mighty arm. But in the next election there was a deal of strife. And soon was heard the martial notes, of famous drum and fife. XVI For the North and South an argument had. Over points of slavery, both good and bad. Old Abe Lincoln then said to all, " United we stand; Di ided we fall. " Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL XVII In the war that followed, the North held fast, To their own traditions, that freedom might last. When the war was over, and everything done. The South had submitted, for freedom had won. XVIII From the great Civil War to " 98 " , The United States became a power great.

Louise manipulated the ball by dribbling it and then passing it cleverly to speedy Jean- ette Dunkerly. Jeanette carried the ball, made many goals and the attempts which failed were immediately " banged " through the goal by the accurate wing — Marie Chapman. All in all, the offensive, progressive, advancing work of this successful Hockey team was carried on by the clever plays of these four mem- bers of the class of 1935. I think I can quote the Coach in say- ing that the remainder of the team hopes to carry on as well next season and to strive to follow their clever, reliable ex- amples in playing the intricate game of Field Hockey. Miss Maylott : To you also must we give praise. Your leadership was ever- present and always " in there " . Your departing Seniors, together with the rest of the Class of 1935, wish you Success in the near future in producing many more undefeated Hockey teams. A VERY SUCCESSFUL SEASON- GIRLS ' BASKETBALL Holbrook : Holbrook 8 — Stoughton 51 Holbrook 17 — Stoughton 46 Randolph : Randolph 7 — Stoughton 32 Randolph 10 — Stoughton 43 Foxboro : Foxboro 16 — Stoughton 34 Foxboro 12 — Stoughton 39 Wrentham : Wrentham 9 — Stoughton 58 Wrentham 15 — Stoughton 47 Sharon: Sharon 20 — Stoughton 19 Sharon 17 — Stoughton 17 With their season ending successfully under their new coach. Miss Murphy, your reporter thinks Stoughton ' s basket- ball lassies deserve commendation. Dur- ing the year, they perfected the new 2- court game and learned to like " playing like the boys play " . All through the season, the girls found little trouble in piling up big scores against their opposition, with the ex- ception of the Sharon High Girls. These Sharon young ladies, although they had been defeated by teams the Stoughton Patronize Semaphore Advertisers Page Twenty-seven THE SEMAPHORE girls were able to beat, stopped the tide of victory for our ball-toters after we had gotten away with five straight wins. The teams on our twice-defeated list are Holbrook, Randolph. Foxboro and Wrentham. Now for the players — Anne Tumonis with 203 points and Captain Hazel Burns with 109. led the offensive drive through- out the season. Irene Tirelis, Louise Wereska, and Bronie Wasilewich starred at guard berths, as did Leah Kell, who jumped center. Four valuable assets to the team will be lost by graduation : Captain Hazel Burns, Anne Tumonis, and Jeanette Dunkerly. three valuable forwards, and Louise Wereska. a very dependable guard. A word about the Coach. r Iiss Isabel Murphy undertook the difificult task of setting up our Basketball team. She is a Stoughton girl and member of the fac- ulty. Here ' s to the future Basketball teams you produce, ]Miss Murphy. The Class of 1935 wishes vou success. FOOTBALL This year ' s team went through a suc- cessful season, losing only one game, which was to an out-of-state team, Nashua, X. H. There were also three scoreless ties, one of these with Canton on Thanksgiving. There were also scoreless ties with Newburyport and Braintree. They defeated six opponents by large scores. In the course of the season, Stough- ton scored 144 points to their opponents ' 39 points. Next year, the prospects are not so good. The majority of the team will graduate this year. Coach Burke, with the aid of Captain Goward, hopes to build up a winning team. Letters were awarded to the follow- ing : Captain Radvilas, Bettoney, Sima- navich. Leahy, Pappas, Pentz, Tirelis, Dibbern, Meahy, Goward, Katzlowsky, Scioscia, Rafalko, Carrara, Hanson, and Bisbee. BASKETBALL The Basketball team also had a suc- cessful season, taking it on the chin twice from Abington and also North- eastern University Freshmen. The game with the Northeastern Freshmen was a heart-breaker, losing by one point after a last-minute spurt by their opponents. Twelve other games which they played in, knocked over their opponents by large scores. They again acquired the Hockamock Championship by winning ten consecu- tive games. If next year ' s team comes through and wins the championship, the cup will be left in Stoughton ' s cabinet permanently, but the chances are very small for this year ' s team was practical- ly all Seniors. In the South Shore tournament, Stoughton was defeated by Abington in the semi-finals. Abington also defeated Whitman in the finals. Stripinis was elected captain for the coming year. Page Twenty-ei rht Patronize Semaphore Advertisers STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL With the start of the season, Stough- ton looked forward to a very successful season, for practically the whole team of last year came back. In the first game, they easily took Fox- boro 8-4, taking it easy most of the way. The next victim was Brunswick, Maine. They came down here with quite a repu- tation but went back with a 10-5 defeat pinned upon them. Stoughton ' s traditional enemy, Can- ton, was next defeated. They were shut out 18-0. Their only hit was a very scratchy one in the eighth inning. Stoughton lost their first game when they went up to Nashua, N. H., and were defeated 10-5. The Stoughton pitchers were hit hard and often by the New Hampshire boys. In a runaway game, Stoughton easily walked over Braintree to the tune of 17-2. Randolph was beaten 19-2, very little opposition being provided by Randolph. By an eighth inning spurt, Stoughton just managed to come up and defeat Oliver Ames 4-3.

" Patronize Semaphore Adverlicers Page Twenty-nine STOUGHTON HIGH SCHOOL AFTER GRADL High School graduation brings stu- dents with a talent for music, acting or any of the fine arts, face to face with the decision as to what place their artistic ability shall play in their lives during the years ahead. The person interested in IMusic or Dramatics should decide whether his or her talent, ability and in- terest justifies making these arts and the practice of them a profession from which he or she expects to make a living. If a student intends to follow some other work as a vocation, some provision should be made to continue the study of music or dramatics as an avocation or cultural activity. The music student who decides to make music a profession has many possible positions to strive for, depending upon the instrument studied in the case of in- strumental musicians, and upon his fit- ness for recital work, radio work, choral work and operatic work in the case of singers. Students interested in compo- sition of music naturally will study the piano and the fundamentals of the num- erous instruments employed in orches- tras. The professional musician may be- come a soloist, member of an ensemble, orchestra member, choir member, con- ductor, composer, private teacher or teacher of public school music, choral director, music supervisor, music critic, or may fill any of the other many posi- tions in musical life. If one has a mark- ed talent, good health and a willingness to work hard at perfecting a musical art, there is always the incentive of becom- ing a concert or operatic star and reap- ing the rewards of recognized excellence. The student who decides upon music as a profession should assure himself or herself of getting the best and most complete training available. There is competition for the valuable positions in music as in all other fields of work and the preparatory training received, as well as the prestige of the school attend- ed, often decides who fills a desirable po- sition. It is often best for a student in the teens to enroll at a school of the type Page Thirty ION— WHAT? of the New England Conservatory of Music. There it is possible to study one subject such as violin or voice, or to take a course including both interpre- tive playing or singing and theoretical subjects, languages, college subjects, etc., which will earn a Diploma or a Collegiate degree, such as Bachelor of Music. Such a large conservatory offers the student an opportunity to participate in public recitals, play in or appear as soloist with a Symphony orchestra and associate with successful musicians. The student who is interested in Dra- matics as a profession probably will train to be an actor, opera singer, dancer, teacher of dramatics. Little Theatre di- rector or playwright. At the Xew Eng- land Conservatory of Music all of this training is available and the student has opportunities to appear in public per- formances, gaining valuable experience obtainable in no other way. During the late Winter and Spring months each year, a long series of weekly performances in which students take part is presented to the public. If one is only interested in studying music or dramatics as a cultural activity or avocation, it is still important to ob- tain the best instruction and training available, and the benefits to the individ- ual continue throughout life. If one fol- lows a musical or dramatic education un- til proficiency is attained, the skill, knowledge and experience gained is preparation for professional work in these fields if it ever becomes necessary as a livelihood. But whatever use is made of musical or dramatic training, the person who receives it always enjoys the advantages of being able to appre- ciate and take part in such activities when the opportunities arise. They get more enjoyment out of recitals, concerts and plays, and when amateur productions are being staged they are eligible and able to take leading parts. As a contri- bution to happy, enjoyable and creative living, nothing can take the place of musical or dramatic training.
