SEMAPHORE 19 4 3 CLASS ODE Music from " The Olden So gs " by Ellen J. Loreng This is the closing song we leave in part The golden joys we have within our heart. Deep in our memories your echoes dwell; The days of yore may linger with us well. Our hearts are filled with kindly memories dear. Of joys and sorrows spent throughout the year. Our thoughts of you with us will long remain, In years to come we ' ll not forget your name. Dear Stoughton High to thee we gladly sing With music that shall ever ever ring. Our love for thee will never become dim We know that peace for you we ' ll surely win. It is the future that we look indeed To spread the happiness we all should heed. But in our hearts the tender memories lie Reminding us of years that cannot die. Dear Stoughton High to thee we sing in song. Our praise to thee in guidance does belong. Your spirit leads us in our way of truth Enshrined forever in our days of youth. This is the end of our glad youthful days To thee we sing our ever grateful praise. Our love and faith shall guide us through the years; Dear Stoughton High we say goodbye with tears.

Dorothy McPherson and James Critser were elected as our class representatives to the Student Council. Our Freshman Dance was a success, considering we were beginners. After our first year we were ready for our Sophomore year. 1940- 41 Having finished our freshman year we prepared to vote for our class officers. We chose Carl Pearson, president; Dorothy McPherson, vice president; Milton Bishop, treasurer; and Dorothy Holmes, secretary. We held a Sophomore Dance, which was also a success. Many of our classmates participated in activities of other classes. Wc Sophomores never had a dull moment to lose. So — we must mention the group roller-skating parties at Rolland. Without a doubt, we all enjoyed ourselves. 1941- 42 At last. Juniors! Now we ' re really climbing up in the world. We were excited over the thoughts of getting our class rings. The popular ring chosen was striking with its red stone and gold seal. Some rings were all gold. The Junior Prom with its appropriate winter atmosphere was typical of the class of 1943 ' s third success throughout the years. To help us carry out the success in our Junior year we chose the following officers: Paul McDermott, president ; Dorothy McPherson, vice-president ; Milton Bishop, treas- urer; and Dorothy Holmes, secretary. 1942- 43 Wc 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: Lawrence Russell, president; Dorothy McPherson, vice-president; Milton Bishop, treasurer; and Dorothy Holmes, secretary. The Senior Play, " Young April, ' with a cast of 16, was a huge success and brought out a good deal of theatrical talent. Commencement week, with the Reception, Banquet and Class Day, kept us all very gay and busy; but at its close many of us were filled with sorrow and sadness at the realization that we were leaving high school and its many activities. Because of the present crisis, we, the Seniors who are left behind to do our job at home, wish every other senior, boy or girl, who may enter the ser ' ice, every bit of luck and good fortune so that they may be entitled to a normal and happy life after victory is won. Hoping to make bigger and better history, we pass through Stoughton High School ' s portals with a feeling that we are more a part of this great nation than has been any other graduating class in its history. 16 19 4 3 SEMAPHORE LETTER FROM MR. LYMAN To the members of the Class of 1943, Stoughton High School: You, members of the class of 1943, are about to complete your schooling as offered here in Stoughton. Many of you, I have seen your growth, physically and mentally since you started either in kindergarten or first grade. What progress you have made since that time should be but the beginning of your education and your usefulness as people. Schooling is by no means the whole of education. Education is progress and development. You should see to it that throughout life you continue to improve your education, i. e. your self development. This you should do through your work, your play, your association with others, and, as needed, by study and courses, which are offered in abundance in the Boston area. The world faces a crisis, politically, economically, and spiritually. As the people, who must adjust themselves to these crises, and must make the adjustments which these crises demand, your further education, your further develop- ment is imperative. As you go forth from our schools, it is our prayer that you all may meet your responsibilities as people — more power to you. W. B. Lyman 17 SEMAPHORE 19 4 3 CLASS PROLOGUE Spring was coming far and wide. In Washington the countryside Found cherry blossoms now all out And travelers so had come to see (It is the year of ' 53) And pilgrims all, they were devout. A certain structure very tall Was pilgrimmed to by nearly all. " Stoughton Building " was the name Upon an ocean liner, some Pass time with stories as they come. (It is a fascinating game.) First, that man of wide acclaim Of Metro, Goldwyn, McDermott fame Described a World-wide Fair. " First, I saw the Bombard ships They ' re called the B-O 76, A perpetual motion affair. New two-hundred octane gas In a laboratory class Doc Steinbrenner made. In case of accident a nurse, Gloria Tallberg, with her purse Prepared to give first aid. With Chet Cohenno I did confer, Who ' s now a " Life " photographer, About the latest trend. Later guided around the town Rafalko toured me up and down. His tours I recommend. Being heard, a symphony band Advertised Somerfields throughout the land By Maestro O ' Donnell ' s syncopation. As it may be supposed The noise was composed By Shostokovich Ecclestone ' s inspiration. PROPHECY Paradiddle Estabrooks African numbers drummed. Looks Like he ' ll go far. (Some think too far.) In Lil Grubenskas ' songs The Fair ' s success belongs. She was spectacular. The U. S. Ministry of Supply On Madam Hogan does rely For getting information. Hunk ' Cohenno is a ham On the Jack Armstrong program The kids all jam the station. In public high school Number 8 Miss Kelly ' s rules none violate. She is a splendid teacher. Mr. Staples now announces Sanka Coffee and pronounces Its perfections. He ' s a feature. Because of Mim ' s persuasive way People rush their tax to pay. Miss Barker ' s influential ! Edith Hoyt ' s promoted then To highest paid in 5 and 10 She ' s the Boss-Essential ! ' Vera Sweetman ' s winning smile Sells you the Ipana style. She is a toothpaste model now. Evey Smith has little men. Her children number up to ten. She ' s a busy girl — and how! Corbett a Marine did land. The situation ' s well in hand. She ' s lucky in her choice. But thats ' enough from me, " Mai declared vivaciously, " Who will be the next voice? " 18 19 4 3 SEMAPHORE Carabatsos volunteered To tell some things that he had heard. (He ' s a successful shoe magnate.) " I stopped at Conway ' s to have tea At the London Bridge shoppe. It was so good I over ate. Also there, Lieutenant ' Wade Of the London Fire Brigade Had come to help a bit. Congresswoman Randall there In Parliament her views did air. Her speech was called " exquisite. " I saw when I was in Paree Monsieur Baskin, celebrity, Cest pour mon corps de la ballet! M ' am ' selle Long for aristocrats Now designs Parisian hats. They ' re the latest thing today. Gene Caruso Galasso The operatic basso 1 heard in good old Rome. It was the marry month of June And there was Struzzie with her groom His first name is Jerome. Arriving at my destination Pechonis had an innovation Sold hotdogs to the Greeks. And now it ' s someone else ' s turn To tell some things that he did learn Abroad these last few weeks. " Barney Silva made a tour Of goodwill through the West. As an eastern cowboy he was sent (But proved the West still best.) He told his story all in song About the stalwart Yankee. A Pocahontas of Massachusetts Was heroine Helen Kasupski. Barney had horses, and sideshow of fish, Of tropical breed and variety. So the boy in his stable was one Robert Gaibl Who knew about fish society. Barney was advertised far and wide By an excellent painter, I ' m sure. The pictures so dandy were painted by Handy. Their action supplied the lure. Dotty Dug sold tickets And " barked " about the show. Her " on the inside " at the ringside Caused the crowds to grow. Eva also drew a crowd Her songs were quite risque The way she ' d sing was smouldering The hit of the matinee. Skinny Silva was the stooge Who sat among the patrons. He ' d laugh and laugh in their behalf And relax the matrons. Dotty Sweet sews costumes That add color to the show. Her boleros for caballeros Are always apropos. Up from the ranks of the Semaphore Into the New York Sun Crean goes from shore to shore Reporting can ' t be outdone. The story which really brought him fame Was the Dorothy Holmes debut; The best of society came, The wealthy and well-to-do. All were greeted at the door By butler, Donald Condon, Who annt)unced each visitor From Paris, Rome and London. 19 SEMAPHORE President Blair of Fuller Blu! h Cosmetique Industrie Was greeted by a tremendous rush (He offered samples free.) In walked McKay and Einstein To everyone ' s surprise. They listened to his cosmic line With wide and starry eyes. Dotty McPherson of authoress note Was the center of attraction Because of the novel that she wrote Full of wit and action. Lord Sidebottom from over the sea, Who ' d just been received by the king, Added pomp and dignity And many gifts did bring. Miss Christman did the flower display Which offered subtle beauty With potted palms and rose bouquets From Stoughton and Djibouti. Gas expert, Critser, was called in A gas leak to explore. A loud explosion, an awful din. He didn ' t take the elevator. The party was crashed when Ledin dropped in Unorthodoxly through the roof. His plane went into a spin Now the house isn ' t waterproof. Thomas Smyth, the corner cop. Thought he heard a sound. Dashing there, he stopped to stare — The house was all around Charlie Downs, the fireman, Poured water on the place In case a spark make easy mark, And saved the populace. 19 4 3 Barbara B. brought for them Cups of tea and cakes Past member of the Motor-Corps Her job she now retakes. Jimmy Fox, the editor Of " Ladies ' Homey Journal " , Is always in a dither But is making it eternal. His everfaithful secretary Is Mary Alexander, For when finances start to vary She never does meander. I have an interesting staff. C. Murphy draws cartoons She makes the many readers laugh And others fall in swoons. Lucas tells the lovelorn About affairs of heart, And eases troubles of forlorn And gives young love a start. Martha Hampe knows her styles Of France and all the nations She even travels many miles To get the right creations. Melvin Kaitz is author He writes them novel size Every story, meritory. Wins a Nobel prize. Anne D ' Amadio writes of foods The recipes are rare. Her pretty sheet of things to eat Would tempt a millionaire. Theresa Williams corresponds She is the news reporter Her greatest scoops are Army troops They always will support her. 20 19 4 3 SEMAPHORE Anna Heelan writes verse Appearing on the pages. It isn ' t bad, it could be worse; Is even praised by sages. Joan Smullen interviews the bands. The Dorseys and Glenn Miller. Her verbation on syncopation Surely is a killer. The next to speak was Porter A wealthy looking gent. But sad and dreary his story His money was all spent. " I was a rich man, once, " he said, " But now my gold is gone. I lost It all on Broadway With a play called " Gentleman John. " I bought myself a theater And presented there this play. It should have been a great success For it starred Drusilla J. But fate decided otherwise And bad luck came at once. Drusilla got a bigger chance And joined up with the Lunts. So there I was without a star And then to top all this. Our drummer, Milton Caplan, quit. That guy we sure did miss The orchestra then fell apart Our soloist next went. She was a Miss Virginia Blye, For stardom she was meant. The opening night was near at hand I had to get a clown. And so I picked up Idsie Crane, But Jackie turned me down. " My public must come first, ' he said, And left for Hollywood. But Milton Bishop helped me out Which made things very good. Then Mai Kasupski came to sing. Joe Santos tried the drum. On opening night we all felt fine Not knowing what would come. Our ticket taker caught a cold. Miss Anna Mootas she. And had to stay at home that night, Oh woe, oh woe was me. The audience just walked right in And never paid a cent. We didn ' t realize what was up Until they all had went. Next morning in Ward Clifford came, A bill collector he. And ordered payment of my debts Of many and many a fee. I paid them all, and then I found My cash had quickly gone ' d. And so you see me here today A weary vagabond. Then Porter paused and dried his eyes It was a sad, sad sight " Let ' s hear another story, " he said " That ' s cheerful, gay and bright. " 21 SEMAPHORE 19 4 3 Then Alice Homer told this yarn, A quaint old funny tale About a man who bought a boat And went out for a sail. Richard Lyman was his name, A sportsman brave was he. And so he bought this sailboat To go out on the sea. He hired for his skipper A man both brave and true. His name was Eddie Atkinson, The sea and stars he knew. Ed Kimtis also went along To help out with the crew, A carpenter and handyman He kept the ship all new! They sail from Boston Harbor On a cold and windy day And then they found Ed Parent A crafty stowaway. They ran into a fog that night And crashed into a ridge And when the daylight made things clear They found ' twas Brooklyn Bridge. Now that is somethmg queer, you see To be shipwrecked like that They pulled themselves upon the bridge And there they sat and sat. The bridge was closed to traffic Inspector Brown said ' twas weak. Our heroes found that it was true, The bridge did sway and creak. Then Arthur Lowe flew over In his brand new aeroplane, But didn ' t see the castaways And flew away again. Our heroes waved their arms at him And jumped and stamped the ground. The bridge collapsed beneath them And they tumbled down and down. They were rescued from the water By a lady fisherwoman Who came from Stoughton High School She was Shirley Chrestensen. A policeman, Everett Hadley, Who was waiting on the shore. Then took our friends into the court Those poor unfortunate four. The judge was Evie Williams She made the sentence loud " Destroying public property Of you we ' re very proud. We ' re glad you smashed the bridge down Now we don ' t have to do it. We knew it ' d come down anyhow As soon as the wind blew through it. " Our friends were really heroes now, And as a final treat, The mayor, who was Ralph Hanson, They were privileged to meet. And now my story ' s ended. Then, " Alice Homer said " Let ' s hear a tale from Wini White. " That lady went ahead: 22 19 4 3 SEMAPHORE " I cannot tell a story well But I will try a bit It ' s ' bout a rare and radiant jewel All sparkles, shines and gilt. Betty found it but grew sick Her nurse was Lib Lagarde. When she got well, she gave to Lib The stone for working hard. Anthony Goodman found this stone When exploring in Brazil The Mason sisters bought it then And hid it in a hill. Then Dotty Simonds bought it next, A business woman she And traded it with Henry Ford For his auto industry. Then they forgot just where it was Until it was too late For Lawrence Russell found it there, But it s not yours said fate. And that ' s the end of that great stone For Ford could hide it well. And it was never found again. Or so that ' s what they tell. " For Lawrence tripped upon a rock The jewel fell from his hand. He couldn ' t find it afterwards For he didn ' t see it land. Spring was here throughout the land And Washington was now at hand, So stories ceased to be discussed. The pilgrims hurried to the hall And homage duly paid by all To that place that had been thrust In Washington, especially For the class of ' 43. 23 SEMAPHORE -iA " 19 4 3 CLASS WILL We, the Class of 1943, upon our departure from Stoughton High School, being of sound mind, do publish and declare this our Last Will and Testament m the manner following: — To Mr. Randall we wish to express our sincerest gratitude for his thorough guid- ance.
