3 1941 SEMAPHORE CLASS ODE To the tune of " Beantijul Dreai)ier " I School Days are ending, now we depart, Leaving the school we hold close to our heart. Memories of you will always remain ; Dear Stoughton High School, we sing your name. Our Stoughton High School, we leave you now, But to you we make this our last vow: We ' ll ne ' er forget you in years to come. We deeply thank you for all you have done. II We ' re at the crossroad of our way. Now as we leave, we do silently pray. That Forty-one ' s memories will always be. Thought of and cherished, though we have left thee. It has been four years, now we must go, Dear Stoughton High School, we all love you so. As now we leave, we utter a sigh. Tears fill our eyes as we whisper goodbye.

For, to the sopho- more class we will always be remembered as they first saw us — juniors; and to the junior class we will always be sophomores; and to ourselves — alas, we know our own faults. 1937- 1938 Remember the day four years ago when we bravely entered the halls of S. H. S.? I do, as if it were yesterday. To ourselves we seemed so important. Imagine it, we were freshmen ! But to the upperclassmen, who looked down their noses at us, we were just another class of ignorant youngsters for them to tease. That year we had the most success- ful Freshman Dance ever held, at least in our own opinion. During this, our initial year, we were well represented in the Student Council by Annie Walent and Robert Corbett. 1938- 1939 All the suffering we went through our first year in Stoughton High was soon gone and forgotten by September 1938 when we entered as sophomores. Now, as sophomores, we soon joined with those who had teased us to tease the class below us. Remember our first election with the following results: Harold Fee, president; Evelyn Robinson, vice- president; Virginia Vanston, secretary; John O ' Hare, treasurer. Our class sponsored a Halloween Dance with much success, socially as well as financially. 1939- 1940 Juniors! ! ! It semed only a couple of weeks ago we came here as freshmen. The crowning event of the year was the Prom, a winter carnival, with William Alexander and Josephine LaCivita as king and queen. The ring we chose to remind us of our Alma Mater had a brilliant blue stone with the school seal on it. This year we had William Webster as president; Muriel Cunningham, vice-president; Virginia Vanston, secretary; William Alexander, treasurer. 1940- 1941 And then before we realized it, we were seniors. This was our big year. Our first official duty was to choose our class officers which were as follows: William Webster, president; Muriel Cunningham, vice-president; Virginia Vanston, secretary; and William Alexander, treasurer. As days passed into weeks and weeks into months, we began to realize what the education we had been getting was going to mean to us v.hen we had graduated. The Senior Play, " What A Life. " was a howling success, and we appreciate the hard work put into it to make it so. First thing we knew it was Commencement Week with the Reception, Banquet, Class Day and finally Graduation. As our childhood dream of Graduation has been reached, we look forward to greater tasks to accomplish and further lives to live. 18 SEMAPHORE 194 1 CLASS BILLY ALEXANDER He rants, he raves, he shouts blue murder.

LYMAN February 10, 1941 To the Editors of " The Semaphore " Stoughton High School Stoughton, Massachusetts Dear Editors: You have asked for a letter from me. You, being the editors of a paper, have as one of your functions the guidance of opinion. At no time in our history has there been so great a need that we should seek out and bring to view the " truth " . To-day, we are deluged with sham, pretense, and deceit to such an extent that it is difficult to discover the " trutii " . We are told that democracy is one of the greatest blessings which can come to man. I believe this is the " truth " , because I desire democracy, but I do not believe it is the " truth " for those that do not so desire and I believe that many people in many lands — even some people in our own land — do not desire democracy. I think that we have begun to learn toleration in regard to religion — I think we have got to learn toleration in matters of government and social living. Conditions in Mexico, for instance, may not be suitable for our type of government or social living. We should learn tolera- tion of these differing philosophies as through hard experience we have made a start learning toleration in religion — our way is not always right for the other fellow. When I was in High School, at the end of the Victorian period, just prior to the Russo-Japanese war, the world was thought to be in a period of stability with the white race, in the words of some writers, " the lords of all creation " . To-day, you High School people see the world in a state of flux. Many of us do not look with favor on iv y race as lords of creation. We hope for a closer approach to a brotherhood of man and a much greater toleration of the differences which we find among men. Some day we may learn to appreciate not a like-minded man but a " different-minded " person — a Henry Thoreau, or a Walt Whitman in his own life-time. You editors will help shape this future. Very truly yours, W. B. Lyman Supt. of Schools 34 1941 SEMAPHORE Front Row. Left to Right—]. Donahue, R. Day, E. Willis, W. Alexander, F. McKay, S. Morey, T. Chestnut, R. Liftman, G.
