A glance at the records show that success has been the constant companion of this favored class. We are here presenting to you this Class History, which has been prepared for your pleasure as a remembrance of the past four wonderful years. ' Twas on a bright September day This class of fifty came to stay Within the walls of Stoughton High As little Freshmen, meek and shy. We soon forgot our nian fears. Making plans for future years. Four representatives we did install From our homeroom in study hall. At dancing lessons the girls did prove They were solidh " in the groove . But the bovs — alas! something was amiss. Arthur Murray ' s was never like this! Laughter l and sessions i filled each day. Then came our first school dance in Ma) . Miss Murphy really did her best And the " Freshman Frdic was a big success. That Sophomore year was quite a wow. Our football stars were veterans now. Marks were — well, better than expected. Our first class officers were elected. 26 1950 SEMAPHORE The teachers shook their heads and sighed As every possible stunt we tried. At Christmas there was quite the show — We hung the doors with mistletoe. Miss Lavallee was a dear Directing the Sophomore Hop that year. A radio show, magazine campaigns Proved that we were making — gains? As Juniors we faced our first real test. For us, there was nothing but the best. With Mr. Penardi as a guide We flashed our West Point rings with pride. From typewriter row often came this mumble, " Now how did this get in such a jumble? " And Chemistry classes — ah, there was a threat — It ' s a wonder this school is standing yet! The new class officers showed no faults I lanning our prom, " The Winter Waltz. " And with talk of a trip to Washington We looked for a following year of fun. As Seniors, at last, we returned in the fall. The boys, how they d grown — the girls? — still tall. We drew a deep breath, and solemnly vowed We ' d make this last year one of which to be proud. With Mr. Randall helping quite a bit The yearbook we tackled: our play was a hit. Our licenses we earned in Driver Ed. My, how this Senior year had fled. Finally, now we ' ve reached our peak. Ahead lies only commencement week. Our books are passed in. exams are through. Our robes lie waiting in white and blue. So now at last we liid goodbye To many friends at Stoughton High. But like the setting of red We seek a brighter road ahead On which to walk and rise to fame That you might not forget our name. Class of 1950 27 SEMAPHORE 1950 CLASS PROPHECY The members of the Class of 1950 all have their ambitions, and in this prophecy we have tried to predict where these ambitions will have led them ten vears from now. The Class of 1950. Stoughton High School, is combining a house-warming party with a tenth reunion celebration at the newly-built home of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Sousa. ( Mrs. Sousa is the former Mary Portugal, i The lovely floral arrangements in the house are done bv Florist. Phyllis Ward. The construction company that built this beautiful house was that of our former class- mates. Phillip Soule and Albert Mann. The plumbing was capably installed bv Joseph Raymond. The huge fireplace in the living room was constructed bv George Hollidav. The painting was done by Lawton Holmes. The interior decorating, we are told, was in charge of Marion Ramsdell. The furniture is from the noted Walter Schroth Co., and the original wallpaper was designed bv our old friend Shirley Bruce, who has be- come Mrs. Robert Kelley since last we met. The meal of the evening is being served by Caterers Barry Malcolm and John Atkinson, featuring a new Swedish delicac bv the world famous cook. Laila Bodine. Music during the evening is pla ed bv ihe famous orchestra of Charles Liftman and his solid trumpet. As we mingle among the guests, we find many of the Class of 1950 who are now- very famous. We talk a minute with Josephine Gonsalves. a prominent lawyer, who is resting after her battle with District Attorne Edmund Neville, in the case of " General Motors Executive Ravmond Powell versus t sed Car Dealer Daniel Lipskv. " The judge in this case was our former Class President. James McDonald. Charles Ivaldi. leading Ford Dealer of the District, has just returned from a conference in Chicago. Also present is Model Brenda Rowe. whose clothes are designed by those famous Hollywood designers. Ann Gould and Paula Page. Wandering among the crowd is that well-known newspaperman. William Bo man. and following him. with sketch pad in hand, is Cartoonist Armando Roderigues. We are introduced to the minister from a local church and are surprised to learn it is our own Charles Murpliy. Arriving just before dinner is illiam Cummings. publisher of a noted magazine, and his personal secretar Ann Calder. Thev have just flown in from New ork on the C. and C. Airline run bv our old classmates. David Cherry and Frank Churchill. One of the members of the class unable to attend the party is ice skater Anna Hayward. whose ice show is now in Los Angeles. Anna and her manager. Mildred Drake, are staying at the George Hotel owned by George Poulos and managed by Beverly Vose. Many of our friends are unable to attend as they are overseas serving their countrv. Goldie Sheehan. a well-known Colonel in the W ACs is under the sunshine of Hawaii, while Ruth Vachon, Marie Silva and Claire Tobin are over in England 28 1950 SEMAPHORE furthering their nursing careers. We all are glad to see Ralph Gallo back from sailing the seas as a Navy barber. We receive a last minute telegram from Marines George Thompson and Richard Cherry expressing their regret at being absent because they are being shipped to Iceland at any moment. As we look around, we see the distinguished Dr. Paul Goulston and his two private nurses, Betty Lundstedt and Nancy Carle. Mary Sousa looks lovely. Her hair is lavishly set in an up-do, created by Hilda Silva and Anne Cole in their beauty salon. After a wonderful dinner we enter the living room to watch the television set sold to the Sousas by that convincing saleslady, Olive Coan. On the screen appears a famed Sports Interviewer. Gilbert Baker. He introduces many of our noted pals, among them Earl Leonard, coach at Yale; Michael Georges, 300 pound wrestler; Phyllis Hellner, who has won a gold cup for being the fastest swimmer in New England; Ruth Forbes, whose outstanding ability in the Roller Derby is amazing; and David Martin, the popular prize fighter. Last to appear on this pro- gram are the captains of the opposing teams to play soon in the " Punch Bowl " , Joseph DeAndrade of Holy Cross and Wallace Whittemore of Columbia. Now on T.V. we see " Sketches by Ernie " , who is none other than Ernestine Mosman. Downstairs many are dancing in the game room, but in the far corner we see two billiard players sweating it out over a hot game — yes. they are Robert Penny and Edwin MacGregor. In another part of this huge room we see Shirley Corbett, president of a large insurance firm, giving a " pep " talk to her secretaries, Reta Brooks, Jean Gorman, Katherine McCormack, and Mary Krollman. Upstairs once again, we see coming in the door, luggage and all, Barbara Keefe just returning from traveling in Europe. Over all the chattering we see some guests listening attentively to talented Barbara Munson, who has acquired fame on her own radio program. We get a glimpse of Beverly Eraser talking to psychiatrist Joan Daley: evidently Bev is telling her about her Home Economics class. We guess kids are still a problem in school. John Santos, private chauffeur for Mr. Sousa, is engaged in conversation with Richard Henry and Christos Georges, who are explaining opposite theories to him concerning the " S " bomb. Donald Weiler, who owns a chain of theaters, is reminiscing about school days with John Simpson, who has become wealthy in the trucking business. Chester Kosinski is telling Joanne Lyons and Virginia Redden, co-owners of the enormous " Nickle i!. Dime " stores, of his interesting experiences in Florida where he is a private trainer for Eleanor Eagles, who owns a large horse racing track. Joanna Despotopolus. a dental hygienist for a local Brockton dentist, is telling Frances Wenskevich, another happy secretary, about her experiences of the day. As we once again watch television, we see the talent on the " Stars Weekly Review " . Rosamond Cohenn o, an opera singer, is there. Her hair has been beautifully set by her twin sister Ruth, a well-known hair stylist. Gerald Cotter, a comedy impersonator, and Emerson Cooper, sensational swoon singer, are also on the program. A special guest is Francis Dooley, the " demon driver " of stock cars, with his private mechanic, Richard Dean. As it is growing late, the television is turned off and everyone bids the host and hostess goodbye. It was wonderful seeing all our old friends once again, and we all agree it was truly a warm house-warming. 29 SEMAPHORE 1950 To the Graduates of 1950 May I congratulate you upon the courage and perseverance you have shown in completing the four years of high school to win your diploma. I know that you will never regret it. However, after receiving your diploma, please don ' t forget the debt you owe your parents for their sacrifice and encouragement which made it possible. Graduation is often called Commencement, because it means that you are be- ginning a new school, that of Life. Hitherto you have been sheltered and counselled by parents and teachers but now, unsupported, you must stand on vour own feet. In this new school you will find invaluable the high school training you have received in courtesy, character, effort, industry, and the ability to assume responsibility. And please remember always that prejudice, racial or religious, has no place in real life decisions. Whether you will or no, your every word and act from now on will reflect upon your High School because you are now graduates of this institution. For the sake of other graduates, past and future, as well as your own. let your deeds be such that you and they may be proud of them. In closing. 1 want vou to know that your High School always stands ready to assist you in any way that it can and you should feel free to contact it whenever the need arises. Mav I wish vou all the best of success and Godspeed. Sincerely. Howard R. Randall, Principal Stoughton High School 30 SEMAPHORE 19 5 0 Fir--t Row: Joan Daley, Frank Churchill, Marie Silva.
