Text from Pages 1 - 110 of the 1956 volume:

prologue As we leave Stoughton High School, we are, in a sense, stepping into the cast of a great drama for which we have been rehearsing for a number of years. We are graduating at a time when the threat of atomic destruction, the threat of guided missile warfare, makes the world shake " like a thing unfirm. " We are going out into a fear-ridden world, a world boasting material accomplishments undreamed of by our forefathers; yet this " brave new world " needs, to a greater degree than ever before, a generation dedicated to the accomplishments of the mind and spirit. This world is divided against itself, each half trying to outdo the other in the race for atomic and political superiority. Imagine the good that could be accomplished if both factions decided to work jointly for the good of all humanity. Cool heads and courageous thoughts are needed. Before going forth to take part in this great drama, we have published this, The 19 6 Sto-tonian, as the story of our preparation for living in a chaotic, divided world.

Murphy not only for the great transformation which his leadership has brought about in our class — from a splintered group of individualists to an organization smoothly working towards a common goal — but to show our appreciation for his willing help as a friend, an able instructor, and a wise advisor. bmtnt ' sitration SCHOOL COMMITTEE L. to r. : Edmund L. Daley, Joseph H. Gibbons, Superintendent; Robert J. Buckley, Secretary; Apple- ton C. Woodward, M.D., Chairman; David M. Benjamin, A. Leonard Anderson. To The Class of 1956: " This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follou , as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man. " Hamlet, Act I, Scene III. The time has come when you are to become responsible citizens of the com- munity. Until now your responsibilities were infinitesimal, parents have been your guardians, schools have helped to educate you and to a great extent, orientate you to the ways of society. We hope you are prepared to meet this serious responsibility and join harmoniously with your fellow man for the sake of better living. In being true to your finer self, you must learn self-discipline and respect for authority, in order to give your best to your community. The Stoughton School Committee wishes to express their most sincere con- gratulations. APPLETON C. WOODWARD, M.D. Chairman 4 To the Class of 1956: As future citizens, you will be partners in a self- governing country. You will have blessings and obli- gations that you must share with your neighbors. Your public school education has endeavored to pre- pare you as a citizen to carry forward the ideals of justice, freedom, fidelity, and brotherhood. You must be willing to carry forward our American heritage. These are years of strenuous change, with both prob- lems and potentialities. The value of your education will continue to be high. In today ' s world our citizens are taking on broader duties by accepting a larger share in world problems. You must not be guided by a narrow provincial point of view, because the world in which you live is more easily accessible from the farthest corners of the globe. Human values in all lands are part of the values that you must be concerned about in your everyday living in our modern society. As Superintendent of Schools, I extend my heart- iest congratulations to each and every member of the Class of 1956. As individuals and as a class you are to be commended for your achievements during your school years. You must strive continually to create a still better world for ourselves and for all mankind. In farewell, I extend my best wishes to you in the years ahead and urge you to be grateful to your parents and be a credit to them forever. JOSEPH H. GIBBONS Superintendent of Schools AARON FINK Principal JOSEPH H. GIBBONS Superintendent To the Class of 1956: Growth with experience is one of the greatest assets of an individual or an organization. That the class of ' 56 has exhibited this sterling quality to a remarkable degree has been apparent to those of us who had intimate contact with you during your years at Stoughton High School. Your willingness to assume the mature respon- sibilities of seniority in your school gives us much of which we can be proud. You, too, can be proud that the spirit you have generated and the respect you have earned through individual initiative and group effort have reflected favorably upon all students in all classes. My personal wishes of continued friendship and years of good fortune are extended to each of you in the Class of 1956. AARON FINK Principal DANIEL R. DONAHUE Assistant: Principal To the Class of 1956: Graduation from Stoughton High School repre- sents an accomplishment of which you may be proud. In fulfilling the requirements for graduation, you have acquired invaluable assets in the form of attitudes, habits, skills, interests, and funds of information, which will be at your beck and call during your entire lifetime. Your success in life will depend largely upon the extent to which you utilize these recently acquired assets, and the purpose for which these are employed. If you keep in mind your responsibilities as a citi- zen and member of society, you will, of necessity, use your education in the direction intended. Congratulations for past achievements and best wishes for future successes in the arena of life! You have good equipment; use it advantageously! ALBERT C. WILLIAMSON Director of Guidance To the Class of 1956: Your record at Stoughton High School has been completed, and a review of the six years I have known the class reveals that there has been a steady growth in your scholarship and citizenship. Your life in high school is a capsule form of adult life and responsibilities. The good qualities of charac- ter, work habits, and attitudes, which you have de- monstrated at Stoughton High School, will serve you well as you advance to future schooling, work, home establishment, and civic duties. Our America needs in the second half of this cen- tury a high level of citizenry to preserve and enrich the nation. This is your challenge! I extend my best wishes to you, one and all, for your success and happiness. DANIEL R. DONAHUE Assistant Principal ALBERT C. WILLIAMSON Director of Guidance Industrial Arts: Mr. F. McGeough, Mr. G.

Anna was one of the sweetest and gentlest girls who ever came to Stoughton High School. She possessed a warm but delicate sense of humor which her friends will long remember. 12 in iHemortam On November 11, 1953, the Class of 1936 was greatly saddened by the loss of one of its most popular and promising members, Judith Susan Mitchell. Judy ' s sincere interest and co-operation in all her class activities had won her many friends. Her sparkling personality and gentle humor will never be for- gotten. Judy will always remain in the thoughts and prayers of the Class of 1956. 13 SENIOR CLASS 1st row, 1. to r.: H. Giannakoulis, J. Crean, J. Sheehan, M. Mone, D. Dwyer, P. Forger, D. O ' Neill, R.

VARSITY FOOTBALL In the opening game of the season, Stoughton had its eleven game winning streak stopped by Newburyport, 18 to 12. After this setback, S.H.S. went on to win their next six games. The most impressive victory was a 51 to 0 romp over North Attleboro. Although the final score of the S.H.S. - Coyle game was 14 to 13, the Black Knights winning, Stoughton ' s fleet backfield was slowed down since this game was played in a driving storm. The Knights romped over Walpole 33 to 7 and then buried Attleboro 38 to 6. The Black Knights won their third consecutive " Turkey Day " game over Canton 20 to 0. Coach Albert " Tuck " Twomey and his assistants, Mr. Peter Gerardi and Mr. Edward Mclnerney, guided this year ' s team to its successful season. Some of the members graduating are Buddy Jardine, the fast and elusive halfback, for the second straight year topped the century mark in scoring. This year ' s total was 104 points. Jim Connors, the hard running fullback, was second in the scoring race tallying 76 points. Captain Jack Connors displayed his superior signal calling and ball handling in all the games by deceiving the opponents on numerous occasions. Armand Cabral threw many key blocks, enabling other backfield men to gain added yardage to distinguish himself as a fine blocking back. Some of the outstanding linemen were Russ Egerton, George Morrison, Paul " Sutt " Magee, Bob Tarchara, Pete Grigas, and Tom Cobb. S. H. S. 12 Newburyport 18 S. H. S. 25 Braintree 14 s. H.

Through rain, snow, or bitter cold the girls were always there cheer- ing their team on to victory. The group ' s orange and black uniforms were pur- chased with the profits from the activities sponsored by the group. One of the most successful activities this year was the competition held on December 9, 1955. Girls from many neighboring towns partici- pated and stayed to enjoy an evening of dancing. In order for the cheerleaders to achieve poise and coordination, they practiced during their summer va- cation. They have proved that this practice was worth while by displaying the victory cup they brought back from the Canton cheerleading competition. Captain, Marilyn Mone.

" Under the supervision of Mr. Jack Miller, the drum majorettes made many fine appearances on the football field this past season. The head majorettes, Fran Magee and Pat Mettler, led the girls to third-place in the Dedham competition. This was the second trophy they had won. The drum majorettes have participated in many town parades, one of them be- ing the Santa Claus Parade. The two head majorettes led the Armed Forces ' Day Parade and the Memorial Day Par- ade. The biggest parade in which both the band and majorettes participated was the Massachusetts Band Concert, which was held in Quincy. The present squad has trained six new girls to take the place of those gradu- ating. 1st row, 1. to r. : S. Starkowsky, C. Earley, F. Magee, P. Mettler, P. Forger, D. Holliday. 2nd row, 1. to r.: R.

Although the won and lost record for Stoughton High ' s basketball team was not the best in the Hockamock League, the Black Knights were one of the best teams in it. Led by Capt. Paul Magee and coached by Mr. Peter Gerardi, Stoughton had an aggressive and fast five. Seniors who formed the nucleus of the squad were Jack Connors, Buddy Jardine, Russ Egerton, Hank McCourt, Louis Gitto, Rosaire LeBlanc, Tom Cobb and Paul " Sutt " Magee. Other valuable members of the team included Joe Callahan, George DeMone, Lloyd Hickey, Bob Lyons, Harpo Rogovich, and last but not least, Joe Droback. In league competition, the Orange and Black finished third with seven wins and five losses, but this doesn ' t give justice to our team. The Knights dropped two heart- breakers to undefeated Oliver Ames by two points; one of these was in a sudden death period. The other three defeats were by respectable scores. The Gerardi five defeated Foxboro, Mansfield, and Randolph twice, and Canton once. After the regular season, the Black Knights participated in two tournaments, the South Shore and the Bay State.

" Under the capable leadership of their coach, Miss Anna DeSantis, this year ' s bas- ketball team soared to new heights of victory as they overpowered each of their challen- gers in turn. While the forwards " racked up " the points, the guards, led by Captain Fran Magee kept the opposition ' s scoring to a minimum. Olga Sousa finished the season with 138 points to win the high scoring title. She was followed by Marilyn Mone with 107 points, and Lorraine Bishop with 103 points. The skill of the entire team is shown by the perfect score below which they managed to maintain. S.H.S. S.H.S. S.H.S. S.H.S. S.H.S. S.H.S. S.H.S. S.H.S.

" The formation of the Dramatic Club, under the direction of Dr. WilHs N. Pitts, was a great stride in furthering the program of extra-curri- cular activities available to the students of Stoughton High School. The club offered to its members a chance to become acquainted with the inner workings of the theatre, and an op- portunity to develop their talents. During the Christmas season the members of the Dramatic Club, with the assistance of the Glee Club and Band, presented a pageant-drama in four scenes entitled The Other Wiseman from the story by Arthur Van Dyke. Staged in the form of an arena, a new theatre develop- ment, the play was a tremendous success. " Thou hast the right arched beauty of the brow that becomes th e ship-tire.

The efforts of the entire staff increased circulation and interest in the newspaper. Many more pictures appeared in each issue and school news coverage broadened. During the year the business staff worked diligently to defray the cost of printing by soliciting many advertisements. It will take much effort by future Se- maphore staffs to surpass the quality of the four issues of 1955-56. ' Therefore fasten your ear on my advising.

In addition to con- ducting elections of class officers, the Council parti- cipated in many activities. Delegates were sent to the Cohasset convention and brought back much valuable information about exchanging foreign students at Stoughton. The annual Alumni Basketball Game and Dance sponsored by the Student Council on December 28th was a great success. Many Stoughton representa- tives attended the Student Council Convention held at the new Silver Springs High School, where they ex- changed ideas with students of other schools and en- joyed a fine dinner and dancing afterwards. The task of working on the last dance of the year, the Farewell Frolic, was also given to the Council. This dance was very successful and will be long-remembered by the Class of 1956.
