This year our repre- sentatives to the student council were Mary Zumas and " Red " Horan. We sponsored Freshman Dance, which was a success, both socially and financially. Soon we were passing from our primary rank to the distinguished position of sophomores. 1937- 38 Having risen in the world, we now found ourselves confronted with the task of voting for our class officers. Our first class officers were: Richard Batchelder, pres- ident; Mary Zumas, vice president; Robert Crevola, treasurer; and Franc es Russo, secretary. Our sophomore Hallowe ' en Dance was successful, and many of our classmates made news as athletes this year. 1938- 39 At last! Juniors! Now we ' re really climbing up in the world. ' We were excited over the thoughts of getting our class rings. The ring chosen was striking with its red stone and gold school seal. The Junior Prom with its valentine atmosphere was typical of the Class of 1940 ' s great social success throughout the years. The class officers were: Richard Batchelder, president; Lillian Mackie, vice president; Paul Dervinis, treasurer; and Frances Russo, secretary. 1939- 40 We were now seniors, and we had reached our goal. Now we really appreciated the educational and social value obtained in school. This was our last year to vote for class officers and the results were: Bernard Howes, president; Lillian Mackie, vice president; Paul Dervinis, treasurer; and Frances Russo, secretary. The senior play, " June Mad, " with a cast of thirteen was a huge success and brought out a good deal of theatrical talent. The Semaphore, edited by Mary Zumas, was very good this year, and credit should be given to the entire Semaphore staflp, which introduced the first " Rally Dance " ever held m the S. H. S. Commencement week, with the Reception, Banquet, Class Day, and finally Grad- uation, kept us all very gay and busy; but at its close many of us were filled with sorrow and sadness of the realization that we were leaving high school and its happy activities forever. Hoping to make bigger and better history, we pass through Stoughton High School ' s portals. 15 1940 SEMAPHORE CLASS PROPHECY THOMAS ANDERSON If your car gives you trouble.

LYMAN To Members of the Class of 1940: You members of the Class of 1940 are about to conclude your schooling here in Stoughton. I can recall many of you beginning with your work as members of grade three here in Stoughton. All of us connected with these schools have been interested in your development and growth during your school days. It has been our desire that you should develop all those qualities which will make you a citizen that your countr) ' may be proud of, and that you will be proud to be a worthy citizen of your country. We all realize that each of us is a conglomerate of good and bad and that whether we develop the good and continue that development or not, decides what type of citizen each of us shall be — we trust that you all are aware of this fact and will guide your- selves accordingly — the only hope of our country is its future citizens. You members of the Class of 1940 have in your 12 years of schooling lived through more " History " than many a century has produced. That " History " of your last 12 years is still in the process o f making at a whirlwind rate. Vast changes, dangerous situations, difficult choices await us all — you soon must take a part in these choices. These choices will require much knowledge, much sacrifice, a sense of justice and goodwill toward all. Have we done anything to help you for what is before you. ' ' The answer is yes " , but we do not know whether we have done enough or whether it was possible to do enough so that you may help make America, in the best way — the best America we could wish. We must depend upon you — you must not fail your country. This is my farewell and Godspeed to you. W. B. Lyman 28 1940 SEMAPHORE First Rou — E. Horan, W. Alexander, E. Rafaiko, J. Shipalawski, C.

I hate it ; I love it ; I don ' t know why ; There ' s something about it that makes me cry. Whenever I stand on its rocky shore, I wonder if it will be, forever more. " When the misty gray fog rolls in from the sea, It covers the land and you and me. It gets in my blood and makes it sing; It makes me feel contempt for man ' s puny things. The tiny little creatures that in her bosom sleep In their coral palaces way down deep May hear her mighty waves roaring always ; But I, in my earthly house must stay; I can ' t see the majesty of her waves capped with foam; No, always I must live in a weak wooden home. I can ' t see the storm-tossed inky breakers. Nor hear the bell buoys, the loud soul-quakers; But I will wait patiently, because I know That ever the sea in my heart will flow. 48 SEMAPHORE 1940 BROTHERLY LOVE Warren Ecclestone, ' 43 I first met Dyer two years ago. He was up in Michigan bossing a crew of loggers. Last spring I saw him again. It was time for the river drive to begin. He invited me to follow the logs down the river with him. As I wished to get a story of logging life for my paper, I accepted. The drive lasted for two days. During that time I made friends with all of the logging crew. There was young Tom Dyer, the boss ' s kid brother; Joe Thorgenson, a Swede from Minneapolis; and many others. Practically every nationality was represented in that crew. The drive was finally over. All the logs were in a small inlet off Lake Michigan. A dam kept the logs from floating away into the lake. Dyer and I were watching the men, jumping, monkey-like, over the logs, trying to keep the logs from piling up. Suddenly we saw Tom Dyer slip and disappear between the logs. His cries for help distracted the men from their work, and they slowly piled up and began to jam. Dyer ' s brother, caught in that swirling mass of jamming timber, would be crushed to death in a second. I turned to the boss to see how he would try to save his brother. He had disappeared, but I suddenly caught sight of him racing out onto the dam with a huge axe in his hand. The next instant he was hacking at a chain which held the great doors of the dam together. The weakened chain suddenly snapped, and the massive doors slowly swung open. With a roar, the logs burst through and floated out into Lake Michigan, making a huge wave which washed Tom Dyer clear of the logs. I gasped as I realized what the boss had done. He had sacrificed the year ' s supply of timber for his brother ' s life. I wondered how the men would feel if they couldn ' t get any pay. Then I remembered what Dyer had told me once before. Men were men on the logging crews. These men had seen their boss do a thing other men would never have done. This boss cared more for his brother than he did for wealth. Men of the crew thought of brothers back home and respected Dyer more. Forgetting about their lost pay, they volunteered to try to salvage the timber. A week later, I received a letter from Dyer. He said that they had salvaged a fourth of the wood. He had managed to pay the crew from his own pocket. " Yet, " he concluded, " what good are riches without a brother to share them with.- " I suddenly thought how Dyer ' s heart must take up about two thirds of his body. 49 1940 SEMAPHORE SURPRISE Beryl Randall, ' 43 It was a hot, sultry day in Virginia, a day when all things animate, men and animals, stopped in their tracks, but not Cass and " Chet " Grant. The Grant family had rented an old colonial house for the summer, but being suddenly called away, they had left the two boys to put the house in order. The boys were now busily, but dustily, changing the furniture in the house. Cass, the older of the two boys, was about to move a desk from one side of the room to the other when his brother vigorously protested. " Hey, Cass, that desk belongs to Dad, so let ' s put it in the library, " " No! " Cass grunted, as he moved it, " Mom said to leave it in here, over in this corner. " " She did not! " replied Chet. " I was with you all the time, and she didn ' t say anything of the kind to you. " " All right! Maybe she did and maybe she didn ' t " , Cass retaliated, " but let ' s solve our problem by building book forts in the library. Then we can shoot wads of paper at each other, and the one who has the least paper in his fort at the end of ten minutes can put the desk wherever he wants to. " " OK, " agreed Chet. The two boys then adjourned to the library. In order to make good forts the largest books were needed, so Cass and Chet began looking for big books. In one of the farther corners was a very big book that neither of the boys had noticed before. They both reached for it at once and in the ensuing struggle Cass fell against one of the pine panels in the room. Surprised at the hollow ring, the boys began searching for a hidden spring that would open the panel. Up and down the sides they felt. Then Cass pressed a knothole accidently, and it gave. " Look Chet, " Cass called excitedly, " this knothole gives. " " Well, push it, " Chet advised. " No, it won ' t move — hey! Wait a minute — yes — it ' s moving! " Stepping back the two boys watched the panel open slowly. Startled they peered curiously into the dark, dank hole revealed to them. Chet, fumbling in his eagerness, pulled his flashlight out of his pocket. The two boys breathlessly waited as the searching beam picked out — absolutely nothing. 50 SEMAPHORE 1940 THAT FEAR IMMEASURABLE Rosemary McCormick, ' 41 The room was thick and stifling with cigar smoke. As the tall man in black strode up and down the deep Oriental rug, the gray haze rose and fell as he disturbed the air. The wet cigar in the very last corner of his mouth was chewed to a frayed rag. It distorted his pale, thin, wan face, making it lopsided with two deep, dark wrinkles behind the cigar. His eyes bulged with the haunting fear which was eating his heart away. His hairy hands clasped and unclasped nervously behind his back. His hair was disheveled, and his shirt collar had fallen open. His attire looked as if it had reposed on a bench for a week. His trousers bagged at the knees and had no trace of a press. All in all he was a miserable, shaken wreck. Back and forth, up and down, he paced. He sighed deeply, causing the ordorous haze to slowly rise and fall again. The cigar was diminishing slowly but surely. And that fear, it had weakened him to the state of collapse. Suddenly, the door jerked open. A trim white figure appeared, smiling, " It ' s a boy ! " A DREAM NOW — SOMEDAY PERHAPS Thomas M. Chestnut, ' 41 The dreams I dream of the Golden West, The plains of Texas with peace and rest, A ranch nestled down between tall trees That sway and bend from the gentle breeze ; The sun that sets like a fiery ball With colors that paint the canyon wall. The rivers that churn and roll along With a noise which sounds like a rhythmic song; Skies that are always clear and blue, Scenes of beauty that nature drew. Where you might ask is such a scene. ' ' Nowhere ! for it is only my dream. 51 19 40 SEMAPHORE ESCAPE Virginia Vanston, ' 41 The vessel had cut down its speed so much that it was now just gUding along. It cut the foaming blue of the ocean as a fine blade pierces a piece of silk. The serene sky fairly radiated peace, but there was no peace in the boy ' s troubled heart. He could not endure Steele ' s cruelty any longer ; it would break him both in spirit and body. How could a lad sixteen submit to the fierceness and stern discipline of a man like Steele? David clenched his firm, white teeth and set his square jaw as he always did when he had made up his mind definitely. He would escape somehow. The smarting welts on his back and shoulders quickened his decision. Suddenly his tears ceased to come to his eyes, for he saw a coral island in the sunlight. One word flashed across his mind. Escape . ' If only the ship was nearer to it. Almost as if his prayer was heard, the ship turned and headed closer toward the island. Nearer, Nearer I David hesitated. He was alone on the left deck. No one in sight. He must leap before the course was changed. His slender form knifed the water. He swam away with quick easy strokes. For an instant he looked back and fear grasped his heart. There was Steele on deck, revolver in hand. Yet he did not fire; he laughed, a laugh hideous and terrifying, roaring above the din of the ocean. Why was he laughing thought David. The shore, the shore at last I His strokes became almost frantic, and he gasped for breath, then his foot hit a rock. He staggered to the beach. He was free. As he approached the beach a figure of a man dressed in black appeared. David ' s eyes were blurred, but he could see the man ' s gentle face. David spoke. ' Fate has brought me here. " Then, before David or the man could say more, a figure approached, a human form wasted away. David ' s terrified eyes sought the man. The man spoke, " A leper, my son, a leper. " There was no escape. 52 pat ronize THE ADVERTISERS IN THE SEMAPHORE t Norfolk Oil Filling Station WASHINGTON STREET STOUGHTON, MASS. Tel. 441 LOOKING FOR A DIGNIFIED VOCATION? . . .
