1944 STDUGHTDN HIGH SCHOOL Stoughton, Mass. SEMAPHORE 1944 CLASS ODE (tune of Londonderry Air) Joseph Levy Dear Stoughton High, the road before us ne ' er will end, We face the doors of Future op ' ning wide; Your guiding hand has helped us near this ever rounding bend, We leave thee now, with courage in our stride. Fond memories of you will linger in our hearts, Your ivied wails, untouched by despots ' say ; With faith and honor as our guide, we now depart, Accept the torch and bid farewell to you, this day. As we look back upon the four years spent with thee, Our happy days are not beyond recall; Oh Stoughton High, the time has been a short eternity, But it will e ' er remain in mem ' ry ' s hall. Thus, from thy ranks we march as men and women, free. Our books are closed, our studies now are o ' er; This last good-bye is tearful with finality. Remember always, us, the class of ' forty-four. 2 1944 SEMAPHORE ★ ★ DEDICATION As members of America ' s great multitude of high school graduates, we, with proud and just cause, dedicate this yearbook to those members of our class who have pledged their lives to the preservation of our democratic ways of life. 3 SEMAPHORE 1944 To the faculty we extend sincere appreciation for their patience with us during the past four years ADMINISTRATION Mr. Howard Randall, Principal Mathematics Miss Dorothy Arnold English Mr. Frank Burke Mathematics Mr. Franklin Crosby History and Mathematics Mrs. Marion Donahue English and Science Miss Christine Donovan Secretarial Training Miss Lottie Elzbut ....Business Training Miss Rose Enos La:in and Biology Miss Margaret Flynn ...

Under the supervision of Miss Enos, our class adviser, we held our first elec- tion of class officers and elected Polly Barker and Robert Dray to represent us in Student Council. We successfully sponsored our first social event, the Freshman Dance. As reward for our tireless efforts as Freshmen we left school for the year knowing that when we returned in September, we would be one step nearer to our glorious goal, graduation. 1941- 42 Now, being well accustomed to the ways of high school life, we began to settle down to a more business-like atmosphere and elected William McDonald, president ; Mary Wisotsky, vice-president; Robert Dray, treasurer; and Polly Barker, secretary. With the help and direction of Miss Lavallee, the Sophomore Dance turned out to be p. great success. When we left school in June, we had the satisfaction of knowing that the third rung of the ladder of success had been reached and we would return as Juniors. 1942- 43 In this our third year we anticipated one of the busiest terms in our high school career. Joseph Silva and Max Katz were welcomed as new members of the class. The annual class elections were held and William McDonald was elected president; Mary Wisotsky, vice-president; Robert Dray, treasurer; and Ruth Grant, secretary. War took its first toll on the class as Joseph Sarrey and Richard Sellars were accepted by the Navy. Because of war conditions we voted to hold an informal Prom and through the tireless efforts of Miss Ross, our class adviser, it was the greatest financial success in the history of the Stoughton High School. Class rings and pins were purchased and distributed. The Army laid claim to more of our classmates, Robert Churchill and Kenneth Kelley. As our busy and prosperous Junior year reached a glorious end, we looked forward to our Senior year. 1943- 44 We returned to our last year of high school life less one more member o? the class; Frank Caldwell had been accepted by the Navy. Our final election resulted in William McDonald, president ; Virginia Fedorchuck, vice-president ; Robert Dray, treasurer; and Anahid Sevian, secretary. The war continued to lessen our class member- ,ship and lengthen our roll of honor, as Joseph McEachron left for the Army. The acting ability of our class was brought into the limelight as the Senior Play, " Brother Goose " was successfully dramatized. Commencement Week, followed by the Reception, Banquet and Class Day kept us busy, but with the thought of graduation on our minds, we carried on, and finally marched across the stage of the State Theater and received our diplomas. Upon leaving the Stoughton High School and venturing into this war-torn world, knowing that the future destiny of America depends on us, we will do our utmost to see that America remains the home of the brave and the land of the free. 25 SEMAPHORE 1944 LETTER FROM MR. LYMAN February 16, 1944 To the Editors of " The Semaphore " Stoughton High School Stoughton, Massachusetts Dear Editors: You editors are ending your high school course in a period where racial pride and hate, world domination and security have been blared into your consciousness to such an extent, by both radio and press, that it is no small miracle if you have found time to give such matters any thought to say nothing of what you have been able to give your readers. If we lived in another day, I would not need to say that there should be no such thing as racial hate — hate between individuals is a very ugly thing — between races it is not only ugly but silly as all races, including our own, are composed of good, bad, and indifferent individuals. Racial pride »iay be something else — it might be pride in what each race is contributing to the welfare of all. It has no other justification. Domination sounds so ugly, security so desirable that we fail to note that security for any individual, nation or race is only obtained by domination of others. We all would be nearer to the proper outlook if we thought of the other fellow ' s security rather than our own. Wc have been taught thit it is better to give than receive. We give lip .service to such teachings ; we wish the other fellow to practice such teachings — thus we make, what might be a beautiful world, an ugly world. This world needs more idealism — the idealism and enthusiasm of youth is vital. What is to be your contribution .- Very taily yourj, W. B. Lyman WBL:SG 26 spare time well spent is not lost and we have many activities in which to participate. n y-Mf p 5 1 7Vf -5 1944 SEMAPHORE Fourth Row: L. McLean, E. Struzziero, R. Smith, R.

No dances were sponsored this year and funds were acquired through advertising, which was ably handled by Robert Dray. Much enjoyment was derived from the organization of the four editions, which appeared every few months during the school year. The staff this year and the Yearbook committees endeavored to make a few changes in general wording and appearance of the book. To those girls in the Secretarial Course who had the task of doing all the typing and mimeographing, the staff offers its sincere thanks. 29 .SEMAPHORE 1944 Third R nc : R. Tobin, P. Mason, R.

Burke Captain — Robert O ' Day The Stoughton High School football team won the most important game of the season when it defeated its bitter rival, Canton, by a score 7-6. The fact that this was the only game it won does not mean the team was a poor one. The boys played a good game all season, but lack of experienced reserves was a ditificulty they could not overcome. Stoughton should again be a football power next season with eight returning let- termen. Lost to the team by graduation will be Capt. Robert O ' Day, William Batte, Alvin Liftman, Nicholas Mitchell, and Ralph Maynard. 30 1944 SEMAPHORE FIELD HOCKEY Coach — Mrs. Gertrude Tomfohrde Co-Captains — Mary Wisotsky, Jeanette Januskis The girls ' hockey team had a most successful season emerging undefeated for the first time in many years. Playing five of their six game schedule, the girls made an excep- tionally good showing as much of the team was composed of underclassmen. This leaves good material for future teams. The teams played were Canton, Braintree and Oliver Ames. The Captain-elect is Marjorie Pittsavage, who played a fine game ail this season. The members who are gra duating this year are Co-captains Jeanette Januskis and Mary Wisotsky, Catherine Duggan, Anna Peduto and Anahid Sevian. The team showed much of the influence of Mrs. Tomfohrde who has always coached winning teams. 31 SEMAPHORE 1944 Third Rotr: J. Donovan, C. Corbett, A. LaCivita, R. Maynard, L. Trotta, G. Carlson.

Transportation to and from the games was a pr oblem which Coach Crosby, Cap- tain Richard Lindelof and Student Manager Gus Carlson overcame. The boys came through the season in fine style, winning many of the games on the schedule. The five seniors on the team not returning next year are Captain Richard Lindelof, Robert O ' Day, Ralph Maynard, Anthony LaCivita and Joseph DeVito. The squad extends its very best wishes to Calvin Porter, a member of the ' 38 team, who acted as assistant coach until called into active duty in the United States Navy. 32 Fourth Row: M. Colcord, B.

The freshman teams which were made up of Wheaton, Wellesley and Skidmore were captained by Merelyn Tate, Shirley Wry and Barbara Harper. The sophomore teams consisted of Stanford with Captain Kaye Smith and Regis with Audrey Morrill as captain. Radcliffc and La Salle, the junior teams, were led by Katherinc Poulos and Ellin Buckley. The seniors were represented by the Simmons team with Captain Dorothy Kimtis.

However, not being daunted, they presented to the school on February 18, a pair of skits entitled " AH But The Truth " and a " Dull Evening.

In accordance with this plan, visits were made to vari- ous offices in Stoughton by the group under the direction of the club ' s officers. These are: Anahid Sevian, President; Polly Barker, Vice-President; Eleanor DiCastro, Secre- tary; Roberta Long, Treasurer. As a major part of the activities this year, a system of Vocational Guidance was established, as well as a recreational program committee which directed the Christmas party and organized various games in which the members participated.

It was a hilarious comedy of the haphazard ways of an orphaned family. The trials and tribulations of life ' s problems fall into the hands of Jeff (Brother Goose), the oldest of the family. The rest of the family includes; Wes, a boy of 17, whose main concern is girls — one in particular, Eve Mason by name; Carol, a girl of 15, who manages to keep busy with radio contests and the avoiding of work; last, but not least, we have Hyacinth (Hy for short) who was the main source of comedy. Lenore Hudson and Peggy Winkle, making their bids for Jeff Adams provide the romantic angle. The success of the play was attributed to the endeavors of the cast, the various business committees and the superb direction of Miss Arnold. 36 1944 SEMAPHORE Third Row: M. Rosen, A. Federico, A.

Dykeman, ART CLUB Adviser — Miss Rose Movitz This club, which develops one ' s artistic ability and aids in finding new hidden ability, was able this year to offer to its members the opportunity of correlating their work with community activities. Through the medium of posters, the members accom- plished much of the advertising of the Dancing party for the Woman ' s Club. In the course of a year, members made candy baskets and book marks for the Red Cross. The making of the baskets required constructive work, whereas, the book marks, of which there were a great many, required creative ability. 37 SEMAPHORE 1944 ORCHESTRA Snpervisoy — Miss Minnie Goeres The orchestra was composed this year of seventeen members from all classes. Miss Goeres aided the members to a greater achievement in the playing of their instruments as well as greater appreciation and understanding of them. Despite the difficulties with which the players were confronted, the orchestra progressed very well this year. The group held its practice meetings on Mondays and studied various types of musical selections. Music for the Senior Play, Class Day and Graduation was well rendered by the members and was appreciated by the Graduating class. The various instruments included four violins, three clarinets, an E-flat saxophone, six trumpets, drums and a piano. CHORAL AND GLEE CLUBS Adviser — Miss Minnie Goeres The members of the two clubs participated in the singing of Christmas Carols at the Christmas assembly, and at the Class Day united with the Dramatic Club in present- ing a very entertaining musical program. During the year, the purpose of the club being in part a better appreciation of cul- tural music, the members sang folk songs, lullabies, patriotic music, and various other types. Much enjoyment was acquired from them. The members also learned the stories behind the music. Membership in the Glee Club consisted of freshman and sophomore girls, while the Choral club consisted of junior and senior girls, and boys from all classes. 38 3 b Co - O z Shawmut Woolen Mills an you and your friends will prize the portrait that looks like you — your truest self, free from stage effects and little conceits.
