The days of yore rest in our hearts, The joys and sorrows through the year. Your guiding hand has reached us all, And left us with courage in our strideg With this in mind dear Stoughton High By you we always shall abide. For years we'll not forget your name And sing to you with open heart. Our love for you shall never fade Recalling you gave us a start. We'll look into the future now And spread the happlness that we heed. We face the wide and open doors And enter them free men, indeed. The time we spent at Stoughton High Has been a short eternity. We hope we've left you all content And remain in your memory. We strive success in all we do With tears we say our last good-bye. Remember the class of forty-seven, For our success shall never die. -MARY SEVIAN 4 1947 SEMAPHGRE With sincere appreciation of her helpful guidance and patience, We, the Class of 1947, with fond wishes to our teacher and friend, dedicate our yearbook to Miss MARGARET FLYNN 5 STOUGHTON PUBLIC LIBRARY STOUGHTON TOWN HALL STOUGHTON SQUARE 1 Looking Nortbl STOUGHTON SQUARE 1Looking North J XXX N XX Nxxxvfslfx.

In witness thereof, we, the undersigned, have hereunto affixed our seal to this, our last will and testament, at Stoughton, Massachusetts, on this 20th day of june, one thousand nineteen hundred and forty-seven. CLASS or 1947 Witnesses: U N ME 29 SEMAPHORE l94'7 Class History Sealed in the secret library of Father Time, amidst musty books and under lock and key is the precious volume, "The History of Civilization." The contents of this book contain the struggle of humanity to keep the world on its feet and the famous battles to keep peace with one another. If we could steal the key, while sly old Father Time was sleeping, we would unlock this precious volume, and add a chapter of our own in the back of the crumbling pages of the book, a chapter dedicated to the History of the Class of '47 and its struggles in S.H.S., the decisive battle of gallant fighters who strived four years to their goal, "Graduation," and how they emerged with victorious colors. To understand this chapter we must take a glimpse at the past when we first entered Stoughton High in 1943. Biting our lips that September in '43, we marched forth into the enemy's lines with our weapons outstretched-pencils, pens and rulers. Taking the defensive in our freshman year, we stood our ground under the leadership of Elizabeth Curry, Donald Kimtis, Pearl Schaaf and Robert Govey, our Student Council representatives. Our Freshman dance, a great success, was the first battle in our favor. With the enemy weakening we found ourselves with more power behind us, so, seeing our chance to gain more territory, we quickly seized the rank of sophomores. 'We attacked our studies valiantly, and courageously faced our upper classmen, who withdrew their active fighting. Under parliamentary procedure we installed our new officers to Congress CStudent Councilb, president, Albert Federico, vice- president, Betty Bishop, treasurer, Philbrook Mason, secretary, Helen Smith. Un- der their help and the guidance of our adviser we charged on to our Sophomore Hop which sent the enemies back to their own lines. Veterans of two years we now accepted the award of Juniors. Being fully considered as upper classmen now, we took our rank at the head of the line and marched on to a victorious year. With much intelligent thinking we elected our leaders for the year--president, Guy Caggianog vice-president, Merelyn Tateg sec- retary, Evelyn Batchelder, treasurer, Clarence Nelson. Under their leadership, and the guidance of our Commander-in-chief, Miss Rose Enos, we plunged into the colorful battle of picking out class rings and class photographer. After much prep- aration and planning we established our first beachhead, our Junior Prom, a happy victorious event. Rating one more rank in the annals of S.H.S., we moved once more upward into our waiting place as seniors. Behind us lay bond campaigns, magazine cam- paigns, sports, activities-everything we fullfledged seniors could have indulged 30 1947 SEMAPHORE in. Once more wishing to gain new territory we reelected our leaders-president, Guy Caggiano, vice-president, Merelyn Tate, secretary, Evelyn Batchelder, treas- urer, Clarence Nelson. We looked over possible blueprints for a class trip. With the support of Mr. Randall we plunged deeply into the biggest battle of our four years. Our trip was to be to Washington, and to raise proper funds, our Sergeants and Corporals along with the cooperation of all seniors, took over the job of rais- ing funds through dances, raffles, musicals and donations. While struggling through this periodic event, our time flew so swiftly we found ourselves midst the events of our grand and glorious Commencement Week. All battles that followed were victories to us--our Senior Reception, Banquet, Class Day exercises and, at long last, Graduation. Marching down the aisle to our rightful honors-diplomas-for our gallant struggle in S.H.S., we the seniors of Stoughton High, held our heads high, proud of our deeds and valors, facing the future bravely. We wish therefore to thank our comrades in Stoughton High, the faculty and Mr. Randall, who by careful guiding and expert teaching have led us through a victorious battle. 31 SFMAPHORE l947 Class Prophecy VIVIENNE ANDERSON MALCOLM BRYDON You hear that call for surgery And wonder who it can be.

You have been a group that we have enjoyed and you have our best wishes for those milestones still ahead of you. We hope that your schooling and other life contracts have given you both knowledge and convictions-for the future of this world of ours has great need of both. We live in a world confused by much talk often devoid of ideas. We hear both, that the world owes us a living, and that the individual is a mere cog in some five year plan. Which is your conviction, and the conviction of many more like you will determine what the course of the future will be. This country has prospered thru work and effort, but we have care for the worth and dignity of the individual, but without work and effort on the part of the individu- al, how is it possible to maintain the worth and dignity of the individual? The future will be what you make it. May the future be a bright one, an advance over the best of the past. Your work and effort can make it so. Very truly yours, W. B. LYMAN, Supt. of Schools 38 N J DN SEMAPHORE 1947 CARELESS WISHING By DOROTHY Sronxus '49 The day was oh so scorching hot, The flowers over again Wished and wished and wished that it Would start to rain. The soft white clouds were piling up Until they got too heavy. Then the rain came sprinkling down On farm and field and levee. The blossoms bright popped into sight, And nodded gayly round And saw their faces reflected in The puddles on the ground. All was happy, all was gay, that day Among the flowers, Until the sun peeked out and put An end to all the showers. The sun beams danced around and round The puddles evaporated. 'Til the flowers began to look Again dilapidated. Then a welcome noise was heard Far up upon the hills The thunder rolled,and rolled and rolled Until it reached the rills. The flowers harkened to the sound And shouted, "Boy, oh boy!" When after quite a little while All was fear instead of joy. They got their rain, alas! Too much! The storm it was too great For all the flowers standing were In front of Heaven's gate. 40 1947 SEMAPHORE INSPIRATION By FLORENCE .DARLING '47 It was a dark day for the Connelly family, and yet, a joyous one, for their son Allan was to return home after five years' service with the Army Air Forces. The day was dark, because Allan was returning unable to see his mother, fath- er and younger sister. He had been hit by shrapnel which severed the optic nerve. At first his mother had been unable to reconcile herself to the thought of her son's being blind, but soon with her usual cheerfulness she decided to make the best of it. But Allan did not seem to inherit his mother's cheerfulness, instead, he was very bitter and seemed bewildered and lost without his sight. As he came from the plane, he refused all aid from any source and made his way slowly to the car. Now the question was, what would Al1an's future hold? He had been a promising young concert pianist and composer, but he had not touched or even been near his piano since he had been wounded. Day after day went by with Allan becoming more sullen. He'd sit in a chair by the window, not seeing, only brooding. One day he took a walk with his seeing-eye dog down by the river where he used to get his inspiration. It was Autumn and the odor of burning leaves was everywhere. The air was crisp in the slowly-waning sun. He sat down slowly and as the sun warmed his cold hands, he heard footsteps, light and faltering. He turned his head in the direction from whence they came, and said, "Who's there?" A voice exclaimed, "Why, Mr. Connelly, I didn't know you were home. I used to hear you when you spoke at Symphony Hall. You know you're a favorite of mine. Are you working on any new compositions now?" Allan was vainly trying to place the voice, as he answered shortly-"No! How can a man like me write music?" "My you are down in the dumps, aren't you? What you need is some cheer- ing up. I'll meet you here at the same time tomorrow." Allan still wondered who the voice belonged to as he said to himself, "just another bobby-soxer, I suppose." But he did meet her the next afternoon and for many afternoons after that until the two became fast friends. One day he heard her humming a few bars from a melody and he asked her to sing it for him. To his amazement she had a rich and lilting voice with a haunting quality to it. Each day she sang for him and soon the urge to create music returned to him. He set about composing a few bars at a time. One day after his composition had been published, he gave her a copy of the local newspaper and asked her to read the critics' reports on his music. But she answered, "I'm sorry but I can't. You see, I'm blind also." 41 SEMAPHORE 1947 DISASTER By Vrrv KUNDROT '47 There was a time when a certain ship in the Navy was out in the Pacific, and the crew aboard thought their chances of getting back to the United States, before the war was over, to be pretty slim. But on March 4, 1945, a very curious thing happened. It just so happened that I was standing on watch at the time. At 0507, I heard a loud crunching sound of steel meeting steel and meshing together. There was a terrific lurch to the port side, and then the sound of rushing feet and a few piercing cries. The luck of the U. S. S. Yarnall was at its end, or so at least the crew thought. Everyone went hurriedly topside to see what had happened. There was the bow of the U. S. S. Yarnall forty degrees out and about forty degrees up. "Collision" went up the cry. Men were coming out of the hatch on the fo'castle and others were being helped up. All personal belongings were forgotten, and money belonging to many of the men floated around below in the water that had leaked in. People do crazy things to get money but there were no crazy people on that ship to go after the money. The bow was ready to break off at any time and the beating of the ocean against the hull did it no good. The injured were taken care of and what repair work that could be done was underway. The problem was that if the bow broke off would it drag the rest of the ship with it? All hands went to their abandon ship stations, while a certain group tried to cut away the bow. It came off without trouble and the bow that caused the death of two men and injured six more sank in the midst of air bubbles. Getting back into port was accomplished with the help of a fleet tug. It was a 300 mile trip from the coast of japan to a tiny atoll in the Pacific. There a false bow was put on, then the ship headed for the States. All of the fellows but two would be once more in the United States and those two will not be forgotten by the crew of the U. S. S. Yarnall. EACING THE FUTURE By MERELYN TATE '47 As we, the seniors of Stoughton High, step through the doors of the future many new facts will face us, and new responsibilities will be placed on our shoul- ders. No longer will we be able to retain the title of struggling high school stu- dents under the protection of our parents and our schools. Now we will be ac- cepted as full fledged citizens, treated as adult individuals and graded on our own mer1tS. Our paths in life will be different. Some of us will have the advantage of higher education, while the rest of us will enter fields of work to support ourselves. Whatever path we take, however, we will find that in order to succeed we must not depend on others to do our work for us, or to help us. We must help 42 1947 SEMAPHORE ourselves. We must stand in our places in the world as honest, intelligent citizens that Stoughton High made us. We want to make them feel proud that we achieved these qualities within their walls. We must possess iniative, integrity and resourcefulness. The future will hold many surprises, success, happiness and sorrow, for all of us. What to expect cannot be foreseen. But we can say, whatever the future holds for us, we are ready to face it. , Upon graduation we will be separated. No longer will we be considered one unit. Each of us will go his own way, and perhaps some of our paths will never cross. We will each have to retain a new place in a new future and for a while it will be hard to accustom ourselves to our new work. Stoughton High has given usa solid background. It has given us a chance, as a unit, to show our qualities and bring out our own ideas. Comparing our edu- cation, and worth-while chances with that of a bewildered European boy or girl of our age, against whom the odds have been stacked from the start, we find ourselves much the luckier for every thing and we should stop and realize this, using it to our best advantage. In facing the future, we sincerely hope, we will be able to establish ourselves as individuals in the world of the future, be able to accept our responsibilities as men and women of America, and reflect well on our twelve years of learning. ROAD 'TO THE FUTURE By RUTH VACHON '50 Aiming to the highest, hoping for the best, Confident in every way of passing hardship's test, Each going his own way, skilled in various art, But all with the flame of hope, high in their hearts. The road to the Future they'll now have to tread, With joy, sorrow, and happiness waiting ahead. Still they look to the future with hope and pride, Confident of overtaking hardships in their stride. The pleasant looking route has many deceptions, Having played tricks on many, with no exceptions. There are tears of joy, and tears of sorrow Hidden beyond the bend of tomorrow. Aiming for the highest, hoping for the best They now face the future with energy and zest. Confident of their ability, and the test they will pass, We bid a fond farewell to the graduating class. 43 SEMAPHORE THE ELM TREE By MARTHA GLOVER '48 Alone on a hill 6Which seems to be its pedestal! Slender, graceful, Sharply etched against the sky, There is a stately elm. Firm it stand, and firm it has stood Through years of changing events. Though angry winds and howling storms It has not given in- It still stretches its lacy branches to God. have shaken it, To some, it symbolizes patience, while For others, its stalwartness Has meant the strengthening of faith. And in the heart of one passer-by It planted the hope That some dav he might know Thar his life had been as noble as that of that elm. MY ALTAR By LESLIE GAY '47 I have worshipped in churches and chapelsg I've prayed in the busy street, I have sought my God and have found Him where the waves of His ocean I have knelt in the silent forest, in the shade of some ancient tree, But the dearest of all my altars was raised at my mother's knee. I have listened to God in His temple, I've caught His voice in the crowd, I have heard Him speak when the breakers were booming long and loud, Where the winds play soft in the tree tops My Father has talked to meg But I never have heard Him clearer than I did at my mother's knee. The things in my life that are worthy were born in my mother's breast, And breathed into mine by the magic of the love her life expressed. A The years that have brought me to manhood have taken her from me, But memory keeps me from straying too far from my mother's knee. God, make me the man of her vision and purge me of selfishness! God, keep me true to her standards and help me to live to bless! God, hallow the holy impressions of the days that used to be, And keep me a Pilgrim forever to the shrine of my mother's knee. 44 1 9 4 7 beat, M MQ W SEMAPHORE 1947 Row 1: B. Howes, E. Slye, F.

SEMAPHORE Adviser-Miss MARGARET FLYNN Editor-in-Chief-MERELYN TATE Literary Editor-EVELYN BATCHELDER Business Mdndgef-GLORIA DEEG With each new publication of the Semaphore a busy humdrum atmosphere arises amidst Stoughton High. Last minute copies pour into the type room, and the latest news goes whizzing off the end of the mimeograph. Suitable drawings are added by the Art Staff, to make the magazine more attractive and interesting, and the Business Staff is kept busy, supplying the students' demands for the Sema- phores. All the school is interested in the latest school news and what goes on behind the publication of each issue. Each year the Semaphore Staff endeavors to better its publications with new ideas and originality. This year, within the three issues of the magazines, new columns originated. To arouse the interest of the students such columns as ex- change, fashion and music have been added. Through the help of the literary editor, a fine collection of literature is present in each issue. Under the super- vision of our adviser an extremely fine yearbook was put forth this year. Unhandicapped, as the previous staffs have been by the paper shortage, we have been able to expand our yearbook and make it topnotch with more pictures and literature. A fine collection of ads made this financially possible through the initiative of the Business Staff and the Sales Class, who ventured forth to get them. To the Semaphore Staff of "48," we, the members of this year's staff, wish the best of luck, and keep the presses rolling! Smith, A. Smith, F.

THE SECRETARIAL CLUB Supervisor-Miss CHRISTINE DONOVAN President-DoLoREs ANDRADE Many very interesting meetings of the Secretarial Club were held during the year under the supervision of Miss Christine Donovan. By receiving the books, "Everyday Living for Girls," "The Strategy of Job Finding," "Personality" and "Occupational Guidance," the club accomplished many things which will help them to become successful stenographers. Oral reports on appropriate topics were given at the meetings for the pur- pose of developing poise and confidence. Small plays were enacted to show the correct manner of conducting telephone conversations, interviews of prospective employers and the reception of visitors. The girls all worked very diligently to prepare the many interesting meetings. The club officers elected were: President, Dolores Andrade, Vice-President, Mary Sevian, Secretary, Dolores McDermott. We wish to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to Miss Donovan for her help and guidance for a successful year. 48 ,ML '. SEMAPHORE 1947 SENIOR PLAY Director-Miss DOROTHY ARNOLD This year the cast of the Senior Play, "The Mad Hatters," written by Kurtz Gordon, endeavored and succeeded in bringing forth to the publice a riotous three act farce, through patient rehearsals and the final performance at the town hall. The play is centered around a family which is out of this world, and as mad as the March hares. Under the support of their grandmother, who finally wakes up to them, they are forced by her, to prove through their talents within three months that they are worth their weight in gold, or else be cut off from any further assistance from her. The way each member of the family copes with this problem presents an effective riotous plot. The members of the cast include Joanne McEvoy, Merelyn Tate, Clarence Nel- son, Bruce Howes, Mabel Colcord, Lydia Oldbash, Pearl Schaaf, Shirley Wry, Al- bert Federico, Howard Shaw, Irene Corman, Astrid Smith, and prompter Adeline Struzzerio. Deep thanks and appreciation for the helpful assistance of the director, Miss Arnold, is extended by the cast. Row 1: P. Schaaf, J. McEvoy, I. Corman, S. Wry, M. Colcord, A. Smith. Row 2: M. Tate, C.

RANDALL President-GUY CAGGIANO Carrying on through the year, helping to solve problems, and bringing up complaints and suggestions of the student body, the Student Council, an elective body composed of the class off1cers from each year, has helped to better school con- ditions and has completed a successful year. Some problems that the Council dis- cussed in the past school year have been those of the lunch counter, dances after basketball games, and unsanitary conditions due to student neglect brought forth by our adviser, Mr. Randall. The meetings are conducted in strict parliamentary procedure. The Presi- dent presides and the problems are presented, discussed and voted upon. Each member is presented a State Council pin designating an active member of the Council. Due to the combined efforts of the members and Mr. Randall, this year has been a successful one for the Student Council. This year's members offer their wishes that the Councils of the years to follow will be as successful. ' 50 1947 SEMAPHORE ART CLUB Adviser--Miss HARRIET LEMAIRE During this past year the Art Club was organized under its new adviser, Miss Harriet Lemaire. With her aid and advice great progress was made in many iields of art and design. The members of the club covered design and coloring and worked more with water colors than in previous years. There were over thirty members in the club with the freshmen and sopho- mores in the majority. These underclassmen have shown much talent and herald a bright future in art for Stoughton High. This club is open to all students artistically inclined who desire supervision and help in this field. The members wish to thank Miss Lemaire for her guidance during the past year and wish her pleasant years to come. Row 1: A. Gould, A. Smith, B. Libby, M. Drake, T. Federico, I. Toupence, P.

It is composed of junior and senior girls and of boys from all classes. There has been a large enrollment this year with many more boys than girls.

This club is organized to give those with a love of music and the desire to sing an opportunity for training and recreation. The graduating members wish to thank Miss Goeres for the many beneficial hours she has given them and to wish her and the club a successful year to come. 52 1947 SEMAPHORE GIRLS' GLEE CLUB Adviser-Mlss MINNIE Golsmss The Girls' Glee Club, a freshman and sophomore girl chorus, meets every Monday in the Study Hall under the expert supervision of Miss Minnie Goeres.

The captains elected were: Seniors: joan Campbell and Adeline Struzziero Qco-captainsjg juniors: Grace Desmond and Virginia Hurleyg Sophomores: Gladys Fiske and Marie Ivaldig Freshmen: Anna Hayward and Mary Portugal. The season's schedule was a busy one. The teams each met at least once a week under the direction of Miss Buckley fexcept when College Board Exams in- terferedb for practice and intramural games. We wish to express our gratitude to Miss Buckley for being willing to take over so well the responsibilities of coaching us, and for making it possible for us to be able to play more often this year. If the teams in years to come find as much enjoyment in playing basketball as we did this year, we know they will have a wonderful time. We would like to wish them the very best of luck. 55 SEMAPHORE 1947 Row 1: A. Struzziero, M. Colcord, J. Russell, M. Ivaldi, H. Cushing, J. MacDonald, A. Smith, M. Glover, J. McEvoy, B. Witham, S.

GIRLS' HOCKEY Coach-Miss ISABEL MURPHY Captain-ADELINE STRUZZIERO One victory, three ties, and four defeats were chalked up for the Girls' Hockey team during the season of 1946. Although it was not an undefeated season, the girls really enjoyed playing. They were also very proud of their coach, Miss Mur- phy, who coached hockey for the first time this year and who gave a great amount of time and effort in their behalf. Next season this year's seniors, all star players, will be greatly missed by the team. The seniors are Capt. Adeline Struzziero, center, Mabel Colcord, right wing, Barbara Witham, left wingg Jean McDonald, right halfbackg Shirley Wry, center halfbackg Joanne McEvoy, left halfbackg Joan Campbell, right fullback, and Astrid Smith, goalie. The managers, who really handled their big job well, were Helen Smith and Barbara Savini. To Marie Ivaldi, captain-elect, we wish the very best of luck with her team during the coming season. 56 1947 SEMAPHORE FOOTBALL Coaches-ARTHUR RADv1LAs, LoU1s VOLPE Captain-DONALD KIMTIS The 1947 team with the aid of Coach Arthur Radvilas returned Stoughton High to prewar form by winning five out of nine games. The outstanding games of the year were a 20-7 set back handed to undefeated and untied Whitman High, a 13-0 Win over Abington High, the first shut-out for Stoughton since 1943, and a 19-0 victory over an aggressive Plymouth High, which had lost only one game all year long. Outstanding players lost through graduation will be Capt. Donald Kimtis, who starred three years on the varsity eleveng Richard Kelliherg Robert Govey, Eugene Slye, Bruce Howes, joseph Pociusg Richard Slyeg Francis Shippalauskig Donald Mahoney, Robert Gowardg and Guy Caggiano.

LOUIS VOLPE Captain-CLIFFORD CORBETT The basketball team this year was studded with five veterans, including Cap- tain Cliff Corbett, jack Pocius, George Howland, Francis Cowgill and Dick Kelli- her. Also in the lineup were Barrett, Cotter, Buckley, Baker and O'Day. The boys gave their opponents plenty to worry about but just couldn't seem to make the extra three or four points to win. Coach Radvilas did a good job of coaching and after he left, Mr. Volpe and Vity Kundrot carried on. The second team was green and inexperienced and didn't make too auspicious a record. But the freshmen showed up surprisingly well and by the time they be- come seniors, they will make a good team. The team of '48 will lose Cliff Corbett, Dick Kelliher, Anthony Buckley, and jack Pocius through graduation. They leave with the hope that next yearls team will better its opportunities. 58 1947 SEMAPHORE ORCHESTRA Adviser-Miss MINNIE Gomuas The Stoughton High School orchestra, directed by Miss Minnie Goeres, was well represented by fifteen students this year. Most of the instruments being of the band variety, the music played was of this type. The orchestra began its public activities before the Christmas holidays when it played at the Dramatic Club's Christmas play. This appearance was followed by others at the Senior Class play, Class Day and graduation night. The members of the orchestra would like to thank Miss Goeres for the un- dying patience and fortitude which she displayed all year long in their behalf. 'I he senior members leave with the wish that Miss Goeres and her proteges will have an even more successful year in 1948. KNITTING CLUB Adviser-Miss ELIZABETH SPBRRY The Knitting Club was organized in December '46 under the direction of Miss Sperry to give girls instruction in the art of knitting, or, if they already were skilled in the art, to give them a chance to use their spare time to good advantage. The club met every Monday, the seventh period. The girls took a great in- terest in their work and knitted such articles as scarves, mittens and sweaters. Miss Sperry painstakingly gave up most of her spare time to instruct them in the proper way of knitting and gave much advice to the girls as to the kind of yarn to buy, according to the type of garment being made. All the girls join, I know, in expressing their appreciation to Miss Sperry for the aid and patience shown to us in the new club. 59 1947 CLASS of e!! 071 4 path or make fm! will "WH: 2? N If 35 sa?
