JOSEPH H. GIBBONS HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY STOUGUTON M a co 3 SEMAPHORE 1949 Class Ode To Tune of " Beautiful Dreamer " Come ' 49ers and bid your goodbyes, For it is time we must leave Stoughton High. School days behind us forever shall be, Only to live on in our memory. Dear Stoughton High School, we leave thee with tears, As we recall many joys of past years. Your loyal hands have helped us along, Thus in remembering we leave you with song — Thus in remembering we leave you with song. Our books are passed in; our studies are through. We know we must leave; yet it ' s so hard to do; But for the glory of your great name We ' ll strive and succeed, winning fortune and fame. So Stoughton High School in final adieu We hope you will miss us as we will miss you. The rooms will seem empty; the halls will seem bare. When the ' 49ers are no longer there — When the ' 49ers are no longer there. By Shirley Krona and Dorothy Storkus 4 1949 SEMAPHORE HHB am 31 n pernor taut The Stoughton community suffered a great loss in the recent death of our beloved teacher, Mrs. Isadora Bowman. She stood for everything that was fine and progressive. Her duties as a teacher went far beyond her teaching of certain school subjects. Her great love of children and people taught us the necessity of being good citizens and the need of tolerance of all races and creeds. Her confidence in humanity gave her patience and strength during her last trying days. Up to the very end she believed in bettering everyone she came in contact with and also sought to improve her own mind as well. We will miss her terribly and her influence upon us will be her lasting monument. Helen Janock, Grade 8 5 SEMAPHORE 1949 ADMINISTRATION Mr. Howard R. Randall. Principal Harvard — A.B., Ed.M. MR.

In witness thereof, we the undersigned, have hereunto affixed our seal to this, our last will and testament, at Stoughton, Massachusetts, on this 17th day of June, one thousand nineteen hundred and forty-nine. Class of 1949 Witnesses: U N Me 28 1949 S EMAPHORE CLASS HISTORY In a scheduled room a meeting of the past classes of S. H. S. was being held. As we entered we heard the class of 1949 called forth. We listened and heard in condensed form an eventful history. The reading of chronicle that recounted the events of four happy years of our lives began. It was on this day, filled with great pride and even greater enthusiasm, that we became freshmen of Stoughton High School. After all these years we have to admit that the rumors of initiations facing us, as newcomers, gave us butterflies. In our reminiscing we note that our freshmen dance still ranks tops in first year dances. In memory we recall aur adventurous boys who tried out for football, basketball, and baseball. Our example-setting girls lent their stamina to the hockey and basketball teams. We remember also how much our members aided the Choral and Glee clubs, along with the orchestra. As this eventful year ended, we planned to vacation for the summer. Taking our places again in the fall, with the respect and knowledge gained in our first year, we began our Sophomore year. The first task before us was electing our class officers. Our choice was a good one with Cleon Fobes, President; Marie Ivaldi, Vice- president; Dorothy Delasco, Secretary; and Edward Dray, Treasurer. These four officers led us well through a successful year. The year began with a Sophomore dance that tops all Sophomore dances. In our minds we still see its decorations. In sports our boys were the backbone of the three athletic squads. In hockey and basketball our girls were outstanding. This eventful year ended with our girls gaining high praise with the Rose Song, the high spot in the Class Day exercises. Our first duty as Juniors was to elect our officers. From a large collection of candidates we elected — President, George Howland; Vice-president, Jeanne Russell; Secretary, Dorothy Delasco; Treasurer, Edward Dray. With the guidance of our officers and the various committees we made a great success of our Junior Prom. After much debating we picked our class rings and class photographer. Finally, we attained the rank of Seniors. With all our past sports, campaigns, and activities behind us, we faced the future as stalwart young men and women. After considering the excellent job of administration they had done for us in our plaguing Junior year, we re-elected the officers — President, George Howland; Vice-president, Jeanne Russell; Secretary, Dorothy Delasco; Treasurer, Edward Dray. Our Class Trip, after much debating, was rejected because of the cost it would entail. We then buckled our belts and settled down to the important things ahead. The Senior Reception, Banquet, and Class Day exercises passed and left us in a state of anxiety. This anxiety of course was for the Great day — Graduation. Then it came, and as we walked down the long aisle to receive our diplomas, in our hearts we not only applauded ourself on making that great day possible but also thanked the faculty and pupils. Above all these, we want sincerely to thank Mr. Randall, whose constant vigilance over us has kept us on the straight and narrow path. With these words the class of 1949 bowed out. We must all agree that this class contributed the most exciting and eventful record in Stoughton High School ' s history. 29 SEMAPHORE 1949 CLASS PROPHECY ROBERTA ADDISON Bobbie Addison is a wonderful wife, But her sink ' s piled high with dishes, And for a gift, her husband knows A magic washer is all she wishes.

It is my sincere hope that you have profited to the best of your abilities and that now you go on your way adequately prepared for the responsibilities and duties that you are about to assume in adult life. Your public school education has endeavored to make you, the future citizens of our country, a group of which we may all be justly proud. You must go forth as individuals with an innate desire to cooperate, a desire to learn and a willingness to work both for yourself and your community. Bear in mind always that the ordinary person can accomplish big things for his fellowman if only he is aroused and set in motion. Be willing to judge things in their true light and for the sake of justice never adopt a double standard of judgment. Each of you must determine that you will be men and women of high principle and character, for these are the foundation stones of all real success. Ponder well this advice, those of you who are desirous of success, and you will be saved from many failures and disappointments. The one word " character " sums up all things essential for success. In farewell, I urge all to become active participants in our democratic society for as a citizen you have a responsibility and an opportunity to improve the state of the world. Positive and constructive action on the part of ordinary people will result in making your community a better place in which to live and there is a self-satisfaction in knowing that as an individual you have made a personal contribution. With best wishes for your success, I am Sincerely, Joseph H. Gibbons, Superintendent of Schools 34 SEMAPHORE 1949 hirst Ron - : F. Santos, L. McCourt, E. St. Gennaine, A. O ' Day, C. Starkowsky, S.

YEARBOOK Adviser — Miss Margaret Flynn Editors — Jeanne Garland, Marie Ivaldi Business Adviser — Mr. Calvin Porter Business Manager — Arthur Perdigao Through the efforts of Miss Flynn and Mr. Porter, the Senior Class was able to publish its annual yearbook. The literary staff, under the guidance of Miss Flynn, produced many interesting features included in the book. The collecting of ads to help defray some of the printing costs was the duty of the business manager and his staff. Mr. Porter gave his invaluable assistance to the class in this matter. The members of the yearbook staff wish to thank Miss Flynn and Mr. Porter for their untiring efforts. The yearbook staff extends the best of luck to all future classes and hope they will have as successful a year as the Class of ' 49 has had. 36 1949 SEMAPHORE SEMAPHORE Advisers — Miss Mabel Simmons Editor-in-Chief — Jeanne Garland Mr. Calvin Porter Literary Editor — Marie Ivaldi Business Manager — Arthur Perdigao As June rolls around, the Semaphore Start can look back with satisfaction upon the work that has been accomplished during the past school year. Each issue was a result of the combined efforts of the typing, literary, business, and art staffs. This year, within the walls of S. H. S., there appeared the " New Semaphore, " fashioned after various other school papers. Instead of the familiar orange-covered, mimeographed, fifty-page issue, the " New Semaphore " was a compact, four-page edition, printed by the Stoughton News-Sentinel. This change made possible more editions of the Semaphore with up-to-date news. Added to the familiar columns of class news, sports, alumni, and editorials, was a new column, " Around the School, " containing thoughts that were heard by " an observer " throughout the halls of dear old S. H. S. To the Semaphore Staff of ' 50, we, the members of this year ' s staff, wish the best of luck. Keep the presses rolling! first Row. P. Franklin, J. Lothrop, V.Gill, C. Barbato, M. Faulds, M.

SENIOR PLAY Director — Mr. Joseph Celi Assistant Director — Miss Mary Commane This year the annual presentation of the Senior Class was the production of " Happy Days, " a three-act, farce-comedy by Glenn Hughes. The plot is a familiar one with a father and mother who have different ideas on whom their eldest daughter should marry, and a devilish teen-age daughter who amusingly interferes with the problem, bringing many difficult scenes to the family. Both the main and secondary plots brought much amusement and solid enjoyment to those who attended the performance in the Town Hall. Members of the cast included Marie Ivaldi, Edward Dray, Shirley Krona, Arthur O Day, Louise McCourt, Eugene St. Germaine, Gloria DiCastro, Cleon Fobes, Jeanne Garland, Gladys Fiske, and James Haron. Mary O ' Brien served as prompter. Both the cast and the class of 1949 extend their deepest thanks and sincerest appreciation to Mr. Celi and Miss Commane for giving their time and effort in making the annual class play a success. 38 1949 SEMAPHORE STUDENT COUNCIL Adviser — Mr. Howard Randall President — George Howland The Student Council, led by Mr. Randall, is an elective body composed of the class officers from each year. During the year they attempted to solve many problems of the school by the installation of the Marshal Plan. The Council carried out its duties very well during the year and discussed the many difficulties brought before them by members of the student body. Because of the combined efforts of the members and their adviser, Mr. Randall, this year has been a successful one for the Student Council. The members of the ' 48- ' 49 Council offer their best wishes that like organizations in the years to follow will be as effective. FifSI Row: 1. Andrade, L. Loving, J. Russell, G. Howland, li.

It was a very popular organization with about one hundred and thirty members. Due to lack of space in Room 1. where the meetings were held, the girls formed two groups — one for the High school, the other for the Eighth Grade. Each division elected its own officers. They were: High School — President. Barbara Chestnut; Vice- president. Marjorie Eagles: Secretary-Treasurer, Ruth Forbes; and Eighth Grade — Presi- dent. Marlene Simonds; Vice-president. Jeanne Zampi; Secretary. Joan Kett; Treasurer, Frances Fennessey. Among their activities were a Christmas Party, an ice-skating and tobogganing party, a dance in which a style show was included, and finally, a cookout. The officers, along with all the members, wish to thank Miss McCann who so willingly gave of her time in order to help them in their activities. 40 1949 SEMAPHORE CHEERLEADERS Coach — Miss Priscilla Smith Captain — Jeanne Russell Wearing new uniforms of black velvet skirts and white satin jackets, the Stoughton High cheerleaders made their initial appearance of the year at the Agawam game. Well received by both the Agawam and Stoughton fans, they continued their fine showing throughout both the football and basketball seasons. Many new cheers were added to the collection this year, as well as new motions. Dorothy Delasco and Phyllis Hellner, in a few of the cheers, did walkovers which added immensely to the popularity of the cheer. The squad wishes to thank Miss Smith who so willingly gave up her time to help them at their practice.

RAYMOND VALAS The 1948 team, led by Captain Fran Cowgill, enjoyed one of the school ' s best recent records. Stoughton closed out its successful season with a hard fight and cherished win over arch rival, Canton. It was the first victory over Canton in five years. Stoughton rolled to seven straight wins after losing the third game of the season to Whitman. These seven, plus a victory in its second game, gave a total of eight wins, the most ever compiled by a Stoughton team. A new scoring record of 227 points was established by the powerful Stoughton team. 42 19 4 9 SEMAPHORE GIRLS ' HOCKEY Coach — Miss Priscilla Smith Captain — Goldie Sheehan Manager — LOUISE McCoURT As the 1948 campaign came to a close, the Girls ' Hockey team had chalked up a record of two wins, three ties, and two defeats. Although it was not an undefeated season, it was the best record a team has compiled in the past few years. A great deal of credit is due our coach, Miss Smith, who really taught us the finer points of the game. The outstanding game of the year was a hard fought, 3-0, win over our arch rival, Canton. Both of the defeats were suffered at the hands of Braintree, a team which had a squad of ninety-eight players!

BOYS ' BASKETBALL Coach — Mr. Albert Twomey Captain — George Howland Coach Twomey entered the ' 49 season with a veteran team anxious for a chance at the crown of the newly formed Hockamock I eague. The crown was assured after the winning of eight league games in a row. Captain George Howland, Fran Cowgill, Art O ' Day, Earl Leonard, and Jim Barrett were the five men slated to see most of the action. Ed Corbett, George Sarados, Gil Baker, Alan Willis, and Toe DeAndrade were the leading reserves who saw much service during the season. The team had much spirit and always gave their best while they were out on the floor. The second team consisted of many freshmen and sophomores who showed signs of great promise. Captain George Howland, Fran Cowgill, Art O Day, Jim Barrett, and Ed Corbett will be lost to the team by graduation in June. These seniors leave behind them best wishes for as successful and victorious a season in ' 50 as they themselves enjoyed this past year. 44 1949 SEMAPHORE GIRLS ' BASKETBALL Coach — Miss Priscilla Smith Captain — Marie Ivaldi For the first time in recent years Stoughton Higli was represented by a team in inter-scholastic girls ' basketball. This was largely due to the efforts of our coach, Miss Priscilla Smith. More than one hundred candidates answered Miss Smith ' s call, early in December, for players, but gradually the squad was cut ro four complete teams. All those who did not make the varsity squad were formed into intramural teams. Although Stoughton ' s was a green team, the girls showed plenty of spirit, always giving much opposition to any team that faced them. The underclassmen showed much ability, promising good teams in future years at S. H. S. The managers, who handled their jobs so competently, were Camilla Gaultier and Brenda Rowe. The seniors who will be lost to the team by graduation leave their sincere wishes for a successful team in 1950. First How, left tu right: L. Mosraan, P. kett, C. Giannelli, C. kovey, M.
