However, the clay finally came when we entered Stotighton High and saw what we were in lor: the seniors did not know us at all; the juniors hardly knew us; and the sophomores hardly spoke. Now, however, as we leave Stotighton High we take with us lond memories ol oiu- years spent under its protection and guidance. 1944- 1945 Bearing tlie title " freshmen " we stepped forth in to a new adventine called high school. The first important move was the selection of oin student council representatives who were George Gibson, Irene Gibson, Jeanne Chisholm and Joseph O ' Connell. We sponsored the Freshman Dance, which was a social and financial success, under the guidance ol Afiss El l)iu and Miss McDonald. 1945- 1946 By September of 1945 oin- suffering of the past year had been forgotten lor now we were sojihomores. The task confronting us was electing oiu ' first class officers who were George Gibson, President; Irene Gibson, Vice-president; Richard Smith, Treasurer; and Martha Glover, Secretary. Vith the help ol Miss Lavallee, our class sponsored a very successful Sophomore Dance. 1946- 1947 At last we were juniors, really climbing up in the world. We were thrilled with the thought of getting class rings. We had a choice of three stones (onyx, ruby or spinel) with the school seal. The class officer s elected were Arthur Shaw, President; Beverly Tate, Vice-president; Eugene Elmes, Treasurer; and Martha Glover, Secretary. Oin Junior Prom with its Valentine atmosphere was a great success, typical ol our other activities. 1947- 1948 Now we were seniois and had nearly reached our goal. W ' c were able to appieciate the educational and social values obtained in school. The results ol our class election were Vasco Roclerigues, PresideiU; Beverly Tate, Vice-president; Eugene Elmes, I reasiner; and Martha Glover, .Secretary. Cionnnencement Week with the Reception, Bancpiet, Class Day and finally— Graduation was not lar ofT. Thus was to end Icjin- wonderfid and nevei-to-be-loi gotten years at Stoughton High School. 29 S E M A P MORE 1948 CLASS PROPHECY " TluTc was an Aiiciciit Maiiiitr, And he stoppcth one ()l three.

Although I am incapable of expressing in words the spectacle I witnessed that night, it remains so vividly in my memory, that I must try to give yoti some idea of what happened. Ve had been restricted to the reeky, odorous confines of oin- barracks at the usual hoiu just l)cfore darkness. Wl ' had prepared our beds on the floor, and then joined in our nightly parleys on the thoughts always present in our minds. We talked aboiU the gnawing, empty feeling in oiu " stomachs that the one meager porti(jn of soup each day coidd not relieve, about the rumors of the advancing allied troops, and what we thought wotdd happen to us if they shoidd seriously threaten the defense of Nurnbinge. We spoke of home and how much we missed the freedom we had always taken for granted. Then we crawled into oin- beds, happy with the thought of escaping the repellent monotony of day- time prison life in a few hours ol sleep. It was not imcommon to be awakened by the deep-toned drone of the approaching Royal Air Force night i)onibers, and I lay in a semi-conscious dor- mancy listening to it and wondering what unsuspecting city was to feel their ex|)losive power this night. Finally, realizing that they were passing very close to the cam]), I got up and made my way to one of the small windows in the bariacks, lio])ing to get a glimpse of the formations. Fhen it liap|)ened! A biilliaiu light blinded my sleep-filled eyes! It was several moments before I could see again, and before the fidl realization of what was happening occurred to me. The first wave of boml)ers showered the city of Nurnburge with marker flares, in order to ilhmiinate the target area, and were now passing overhead. The second wave approached from a different direction and were greeted with the first barrage from the anti-aircraft fortifications defending the city. I could see the first ship as it entered the wall of exploding shells to drop its tons of bombs; then a second, then countless bombers entered the target area and jettisoned their demolitions and incendiaries. Tlie bombs exploded with a tluniderous ear-splitting roar, spraying binn- ing fragments hundreds of feet into the air, and the very foundation of the building shook l)eneath me from the concussion. More defense guns took up the battle and the barrage thickened. One ])lane was hit, and I watched it as it veered oiuward and downwaid away from the formation, pliniging earthward like a great flaming meteor. I mumbled silent prayers that the crew members woidd ditch before it was too late, and those prayers were answered as seven 35 S E M A P H O R E 1948 chutes opened, almost sinuiltaneoiisly, above the plummeting, ill-lated ship. Va ' e alter ■ave of bombers passed over the target and dropped their bombs effectively. But the enemy ' s guns were taking their toll and the raiders lost heavily. It stopped as suddenly as it had started. The marker flares binned out as the last wave of bombers thimdered overhead, setting course tor home, and the guns ceased firing as they passed out of range. The sudden stillness that now veiled the entire area was broken only by an occasional explosion in the heart of the city. The only evidence of the raging hell of a few minutes before was the glowing reflection of hundreds of fires against the sky. No one had spoken at all din ing the boml)ing: in fact, I had not been aware of anyone around me. There was some conversation now, l)ut verv little. I could not have spoken had I desired to, so I found my bed and slipped in. I lay there trembling for several minutes, still tense and excited by the spectacle of destruction I had witnessed. Finally, with these thoughts still whirling in my mind, I succumbed to the fatigue of excitement that was overtaking me. A THRILLING EXPERIENCE Marima (.i.omr. ' 48 I shall never forget, I know, what happened that day. Shared with three others, my mother, grandmother and grandfather, it Avas one of the biggest and most awing experiences I have ever had. My mother anil I had gone, that siunmer several years ago, to visit my grand- parents in their home in a small Maine town. Toward the middle of our stay, it had become very hot and stuffy — so stuffy that the air seemed to be heavy with humidity. As the heat became increasingly unbearable, the indications that a storm was on its wiiy moimted. On Monday, July 9, that storm came. Never hail I seen — nor have I seen since — a storm that could ecpial it in violence. Blue lightning crackled on the winilow panes; anil Avhen it thundered, there was not a loud clap but a metallic breaking sound, which started softly overhead and seemed to spread until it had filled the countryside with its volume. The two tall elms standing before the house were split down through the middle, and many other trees w ' ere robbed of branches because of that lightning which came so fast and seemeil so merciless. .S6 19 4 8 SEMAPHORE My grandfather, standing at the window, was the first to notice that the barn was on fire. The house, which had been bought about five years before, was a very old farmhouse, attached to its great barn by an el. Situated in the exact center of the length of a two-mile road, it was rather isolated, although there were several neighboring families scattered down the road on either side. The heavy rain did not seem to have any effect on the flames; we coidd see that the fire was quietly burning along the eaves of the barn. As the wires were evidently down somewhere, we coidd not reach the fire department by way of telephone. Though the fire in the barn did not look very menacing, it was decided that we should try to put it under control. My grandfather, taking a long ladder, climbed to the top of the roof, my mother climbed to the middle of the ladder, and my grandmother and I carried pails of water for her to hand to him. Ihe storm had passed a little, biu had left behind it pounding rain and hail. We could not extinguish the fire. After about twenty minutes of futile attempt, my grandfather came down from the roof and left in the car for the village to summon the fire de])artment. My mother, my grandmother and 1 set to work packing our things and some of grandmother ' s prize belongings, " just in case, " and put them down on the edge of the road. The fire had so gained in fiu ' y by the time the fire department arrived that it was impossible to save the barn. Neighbors, meanwhile, had congregated. More and more people seemed to be coming, and a great many of them had started to efficiently move fmnitiue and belongings from the house to the lawn. Amazed, I watched them carry out chairs, pictines, beds . . . Even the kitchen stove was brought out and left on the road by its bearers, who promptly turned back for more. Because of those kind people, nearly all ol my grandparents ' possessions were saved intact. The Fire Dejjartment, lacking enough water to provide any pressine and not having dynamite with which to blow uj) the el separating the house and barn, could not save the house. Two hoins later, we watched its charred fiame- work collapse on its brick foundation. My grand]iarents, ]jeople not easily discouraged, today are living in another lovely house in a nearljy town. I have often marveled at the fact that none of us was hurt in the first stages of that awful storm. 37 S E M A P MORE 19 18 TO THE GRADUATES OF 1948 Cc ngratulations u]k)ii the courage and jierscverance ou have shown in completing the four years of high school to win your diploma.

Each issue of the Semaphore was the result of the hard work of its literary, business and art staffs, and of the typewriting classes who with patience and effi- ciency made all copies and stencils. It was these efforts, combined, that made it the success that it was. To its adviser, Miss Flynn, the staff extends genuine thanks for her untiring efforts on its behalf. May there be many more and successful issues of the Semaphore in years to come! • 40 19 4 8 SEMAPHORE SENIOR PLAY V Dircclor — Mv.. [osii-H Ci;i.i Assistant l)iye(t()r — Ir. Arthcr Pknardi This year the hilarious comedy " Apple Blossom rime " by Eugene S. Haler was successlully presented by the Senior Class. The plot is a lamiliar one with a villainous, scheming female and the highly involved lover assisted by his wise cracking Iriend and the usual happy ending. However, due to Mr. Haler ' s witty presentation ol the main plot and its nimierous secondary jjlots, the jjlay gave three acts ot solid enjoyment to those who attended. The cast included Virginia Hinley, Harold Howes, Milton Cjane, Irwin Daub, James Pappas, Walter Kosinski, Marilyn Smith, Irene Gibson, Evelyn DeVito, Beverly Tate, Pauline Applebaum and Diana Marmakus.

Handicapped as they were by the lack of experienced coaching, the girls nevertheless remained undaimted and tried theii hardest in each game. The team loses one senior this year. She is Martha " Mike " Glover, whose position was right inner. Sincerest thanks are extended to Miss Cronin for taking over so well the job of coaching. Knowing very little about the game, she nevertheless gave of her lime for the team, (|iiickly winning their friendship and gratitude. Hilda Silva, manager, deserves much credit for handling her job so competently. Although their mmiber of victories it not high, the girls gained much cnjoy- nicnt Irom playing. To captain-elect, Goldie Sheehan, is extended the hope that her teani, next year, will have a very successful season. Row 1: II. Sil a (Manager), A. Calder, F. Wenske idi. l. Il.iiiis. I ' ,.

Constituting this music club were boys from all classes and girls from the Junior and Senior classes, all expertly supervised by Miss Minnie Goeres. 1 he Choral Club offers an opportimity to all those who want to develop an appreciation of music. With the partici})ation of all in the singing, such a goal is pleasantly attained. Vith best wishes for the luture years of the Choral Club, the graduating members wish to bestow upon Miss Goeres many thanks for her constant efforts to ac(]uaint them with an ap|jreciation they will never forget.

ORCHESTRAL CLASS .S ' zpor ' ' vor — Miss Minnu (tOIRis The (Mchestial players " class, under the super ision ol Miss Minnie Goeres, has, this year, done much work on both classical and modern music. Ii lias, moreover, led an active season, taking part in the Christmas .Vssembly, the CJass Play, Class Day, and Graduation programs. This is real achievement, we feel, for a group of such limited enrollment. A number of the members of the class are at present stud ing music, while the others have completed their basic studies. The group wishes to express its ajjpreciation and thanks for Miss Goeres ' patience and her untiring work in its behalf. The steps taken by the orchestral class surely must reffect the excellence of her supervision. This year ' s members are: Ronald Bolduc, piano: Gloria Seldon, clarinet: Alan Villis, clarinet: Paid Goidston, clarinet: Charles Liftman, trimipet; Law- rence Fisher, trinnjjet; James Haron, trombone: Frank Perrone, accordion. 48 MM ' THE Chronicle Publishing Co.
