A good SWAMPSCOTTA business manager, jay is well liked and full of fun. As pilot of the Green Hornet, he is often seen chauffeuring the football squad as well as those of the fairer sex. His thoughts of the future are directed toward Dartmouth. Lonanne Arbby-Lon Band 5, 4, Dramatic Club 3, 4, Variety Sbow 4 When Louanne came to us from Elkhart, Indiana two years ago, she certainly boosted the morale of S. H. S. with those ever-sparkling eyes and ivory com- plexion which gave everyone a decided lift. Lou plans to give the School of Nursing in Phoenix, Arizona its share of her versatility next year with the idea of being an air hostess when she graduates. Good luck, Lou-for we know that you'll charm others fully as much as you have us!! George Raymond Baltbazan fr-Iteloy Football 3, 4 A good ball player and witty mathematician, that's Itchy! Miss White will certainly miss you next year, and so will the rest of us. As a fellow with an ever-ready smile, we'll always remember you. Itchy says that he had a few definite plans for the future, but if Congress passes UMT, then he will probably be with Uncle Sam. Barbara fean Barker Travel Club 4 A sweet smile and a warm, charming manner are but two of Barbara's many attributes. She likes just about everything from knitting and sports to cats. Perhaps that's why everyone likes her. Either a laboratory technician or prefer- ably a medical secretary are in Barbara's thoughts for the future, and we wish her good luck in whatever field she chooses. Earl Leroy Barnard Barbetball 2, 3, 4g Track 5g Student Council 4 Strong, silent, and always dependable are the features which best suit Earl. He's so calm and easy-going that we know S. H. S. will be glad to have him back for another year as a P. G. He would like to enter a business school after leaving Swampscott, preferably Northeastern University. But wherever the place-and whatever the time, we know that he'll be appreciated by all. Tbe Sea Gull Alan Dauzkl Block B Dramatic Club, 2, 3, 45 Travel Club 25 Forum 25 SWAMPSCOTTA Stag 3,45 Assistant Business Manager 45 Home Room Represezztatiue 45 Banu' 3, 45 Golf 4 We will always remember Alan for his studious ways and his serious attitude toward work. Mention a Latin book, and Alan will tell you practically all of its contents. A very witty fellow, Al has an interest in music and is an out- standing member of the band. Alan was one of the few boys who passed the Naval R. O, T. C. tests. He is evolving towards Harvard for the future. Robert Bonefant-Mugs Bob Glee Club 25 Football 2, 3, 45 Basketball 3, 45 Baseball 25 Variety Show 45 M. A. Sbow 4 Mugs is an extremely popular figurehead around S. H. S. His lanky form may fbe seen slowly truclging through any of the corridors. Bob is a very able athlete and is prominent as a football back. He hopes to enter a business school unless Uncle Sam comes along first. But no matter what it is, remember we're cheering for you, Bob. Etlvel Mae Bouelwzau Glee Club 25 Basketball 25 Home Economics Club 25 Rieaf Cross Representative 25 Year Boob Stajjf 4 Do not be deceived by Ethel's outward manner of calmness and composure which are sharp contrasts to her bubbling enthusiasm. Now her greatest inter- ests are photography, dramatics, and dancing, and she enjoys nothing better than a good joke. Best of luck, Ethel, in whatever field you may choose to enter. Priscilla Bradlq-Psfir P B Basketball 2 Pris is well known among us for that merry twinkle in her eye and her infec- tious laugh. She is always ready to join in the fun. Those who have known her for a friend are proud of the fact. P. B. has not yet decided upon her life's work, but it is certain that her friendly manner will be a great help to her. Marcza Frances Brown Glee Club 2, 3, 45 Hockey 2, 3, 45 Class Secretary 35 Drill Team 45 SWAMPSCOTTA Staff 2, 3, 45 Basketball 2, 3, 45 Dramatic Club 35 Band 35 Badminton 2, 3, 45 Softball 2, 3, 45 Variety Sbow 4 5 With the closing of school each june, Marcia is scurrying to prepare for her annual trip to Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. What's the attraction, I wonder? Wheelock College is her choice for the future, where she plans to study the art of teaching the kindergarten children. Best of luck always, Marcia, and we know you'l1 continue to make many friends as you did at S. H. S. F it ik Ji Tbe Sea Gall Zlihkbele Anthony Buonanduci-Mike Bzlgf Mike Football 2, 3 . Mike is one of those quiet kids!??? fha, hal The Hammer and Nailers are going to miss you, Mike. Yes, especially Frit McArthur, because now he will not be able to eat the candy you slipped him in salesmanship or the current problems class. Mike plans to work this coming summer and by next year he will be on his way to a baker's school in Chicago to learn the art of baking. Richard H udfon Burt-Dick . Glee Clab 2, Male Cbomi' 25 Band 5, 4, Camera Club 4g Variety Sbow 4 Richard is well-known around Swampscott High for his humorous pranks and infectious grin. He also is quite musically inclined, especially on his tenor sax. As for his future plans, Dick has hopes of entering Northeasterni Uni- versity. The best of luck to you, and we know that whatever you do, your! sense of humor will be a great asset. Ruth Ann Cbrirtzamen . SWAMPSCOTTA Staff 3, 45 An Editor 4 Ruth has a grace and charm well worth knowing about. Her beautiful blonde hair and sort of "peaceful" expression make her admired and looked up to by all. She has done a good job this last year as the art editor of the SWAMPSCOTTA,f and we know that regardless of what she does in the future, she will be fully rewarded. Maribfn Ruth Clark . .i a . Hockey 4, Basketball 3, 4 Marilyn is one of our star basketball enthusiasts. She came to us from Marble- head and was a very attractive addition to the team. As for her future plans, Marilyn wants to go to a junior college and upon graduating from there, desires to enter, nursing. We're sure she'll be a splendid representative of that worth- while profession. Wiyred Elwin Colclougb-Coke Coke is that handsome, mild mannered ex-driver of the Yellow Flash who is a wow with the women around S. H. S. We have frequently seen him at the rollerskating rink at Nahant. Who's that slick chick, Coke? We're sure Mr. Emanulson will miss those conversations between Coke and Little Mac in that last period class. Next year Coke wants to work for his father. If he is called to the colors, Coke will serve with the Marines. L t Tbe Sea Gull Fred CO0WQy-GOZQZJ Barbetball 2, 3, 4, Captain 4, Football 3, Baseball 2, Track 3, Golf 3, Student Council 4 Fred fmake outj Cooney is a man who likes action and generally finds it in his favorite hunting grounds in Marblehead. On the other hand, Fred was our cap- able basketball captain who fought the hardest when the going was tough and a fellow who would rather play basketball than eat. Fred would like to enter college where there are plenty of girls.

One of Miss Nazarian's outstanding prodigies, Dick proves his versatility by his excellent work on the baseball diamond, come spring. An all 'round good sport, Dick is sure to make the future his success. Edward Martin Curry fr-Ed Hoabey 4, Variety Sbow 4 Although Ed came to us from Wlmip town, his greatest interests seem to lie just over the border in Lynn. Last fall we had frequent glimpses of him as the Blue Flash came chugging up the hill. Big Ed from Marblehead plays hockey, is Mr. Robin's valet, and proves to be quite a mechanic. Next year Ed wants to go to some business school such as Bentley. Good luck, Ed.

Rzkburd Alvin Davidson-Dzkk, Dave Glee Club 2, 3, 4, Male Cboru: 2, 3, 4 To relieve the boredom of any study hall, Dick's presence is all that's needed. The originator of many a good joke, Dick is liked by all the gang. We've heard 'round town that he's quite a Hash on the bowling alley. Whatever your future may hold, Dick, here's luck to you always! Tbe S ea Gull form Dwnilng i Barbelball 2, 3, Glee Club 2, 3, 4g Travel Club 3, 4 Although joan may seem quiet at times, she's wonderful to know.

We know that with your happy smile and sunny dis- position, you'll be a hit with the little tots. Gordon Arnold Dermi.r-Pastor Year Book Stajj' 45 Variety Show 4 The Pastor just cou1dn't bear to attend S. H, S. without Acker, so he brought him along this year. Don't let the Pastor's outward appearance of seriousness fool you though. He likes joking and fooling as much as the rest of us. Rumors tell us that he is quite a churchman. By the way, if you ever buy one of those Silverlines, make sure he puts the label on right side up. For next year, he is thinking of joining the Navy.

He always seems to find adjectives galore. Besides being a member of the "Citrus Boys" and chief counter polisher at the Epitome of Impeccable Pharma- seutical Supplies, etc., Bob finds time to take part in many school activities. Whether it's acting, leading cheers, managing the baseball team, or cracking jokes, he is sure to do a good job. Since Bob is a physical wreck ftwo crooked teethj he's thinking about Northeastern for next year. Ralph Arztorlio Dilirco-R.

We're not going to worry about you, Harold, because you'll come out on top in whatever you do. Tbe Sea Gull Rzcbard fazmer Gzfzllagber-Dzkle Band 2, Orcbertra 2g Dramatic Club 25 Track 35 Bareball 4 D'ick's attention has always been centered a little more in rival territory than here in Swampscott, but we see enough of him to know that there's a lot ofl personality under that quiet exterior.

Class Da Parts SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY FLOYD Wiinsriza One morn in September, 1945, the sun shone majestically upon the stately S. H. S. leaving its stony steps in long, cool shadows. The whole world, two weeks preceeding, had rejoiced at the victory over japan. Amongst the happy, laughing voices of those who had witnessed the bell-ringing ceremony, as they gathered in the schoolyard, was felt a certain imminent placidness. One might have characterized this calmness by the lull that follows the storm. Among the multitude of teen-agers were various newcomers to the institution upon the hill. We Sophomores tried to look important but succeeded only in feeling extraordinarily embarrassed. The faculty, on the other hand, exhibited a much more experienced attitude toward the Hrst day of school. They distributed books, and gave assign- ments in order to launch a year of learning. A new- comer to this task at S. H. S. was Mr. Reinhalter, teacher of mathematics. Mr. Reinhalter excelled in his ability to conduct classes in an orderly fashion. Kenneth Sewall, one of Mr. Reinhalter's students, became busily engaged in the poiltical affairs of the class. His popularity won him the ofhce of President. Ken could not have managed the various jobs of the class, hewever,gwithout help from the Vice- President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Marion Dudley, ,ludy Morse, and Dick Coraine, respectively. While Marion and Judy scurried about the school for dance committees. Dick was busy at the task of collecting class dues. The Sophomore class, as a whole, had little to offer in the way of scholarship. However, we ush- ered in a new spirit to S. H. S. as was shown by the expressions appearing on Coach Martin's face. It was a lean year for Coach, winning three out of nine games, but the will to win was there. The Swampscott-Marblehead game exemplified the conscientious spirit of the student body. The night before the game, throngs of students and townspeople gathered at the monument to contribute their sup- port to the team. Despite the fact that the game, the next morning, was played in a downpour of rain, the entire student section was filled to capacity. The score at the outcome of the game was 6 to 0 in favor of Marblehead. This close score, a moral vic- tory for us because we were expected to be C0111- pletely outclassed by the Marblehead eleven. The Sophomores on the squad were: jack McNary, Mike Stien, Kenny Sewall, Floyd Webster, Robert Webster, Bob Bonefant, Knox Robins, Whitney Welch, Fred Cooney, Phillips Smith, Edgar Hobby, Phil Regan, Mike Buonanduci, Earl Townsend, George McDermott, Alan McArthur, Dave Sewall, and the capa'ble manager, Dean McArthur. During a football game there is always ample opportunity for a student to cheer his team on to victory. Cheering, however, must be controlled in order to make it effective. Two of the most capable Sophomores for this task were Dick Turner and Bob Diamond. Their ability to arouse the crowd into harmonious discord won them fame at the football games. Our athletic girls were not idle during the fall months. They were quietly slugging out live wins and one lonely tie game in the sport of field hockey. Our hockey players were: Ann Kitfield, Marcia Brown, Betty Smith, Marion Dudley, Mary Pickard, Nancy Myers, and Phyllis Moran. After the janitors had done a very good job of re-finishing the gymnasium floor, the basketball team went to work and marked it up. The janitors didn't mind, because they saw some very good games that season. The Sophomores who played the second team games were Richard Robinson, Robert Webster, Phillips Smith, Kenneth Sewall, jack McNary, Knox Robins, Earl Barnard, George Holt, john Lilburn, and Floyd Webster. The Swampscott lassies showed the boy's basketball team some delicate ball handling. The Sophomores on the squad were Nancy Williams, Sally Merritt, Priscilla Bradley, Nat Dahlquist, Marion Dudley, Betty Smith, Nancy Myers, Fay Rhodes, Ethel Boudreau, Marcia Brown, joan Deming, Mary Dunn, Anne Gambale, Ann Kitfield, Colette Le- Comte, and judy Morse. By now, the buds were beginning to bloom, the snow was just a puddle in the gutter, and life itself seemed to burst forth with much strength and vigor. During this time of year many families had wished they didn't live near the baseball parks for fear of broken windows. Speaking of baseball, the High School batted out seven wins and five losses. One of the decisive wins, however, was the 3 to 2 victory over Marblehead. There were many Sophomores on the team that year, four of which received their let- ter. Those included were Dick Coraine, Doc Ring, Dave Sewall and Robert Webster. . Other Sluggers of S. H. S. were the members of the newly formed golf team. They performed very well on the various greens although they weren't for- tunate enough to acquire caddies. The Sophomore "pros" were Sumner Hovey and Iohn Nies. Each Sophomore home room sent their most ag- gressive member to the student council. This or- ganization functioned very well with the help of the Sophomore members. Those included were Dick Coraine, Earl Barnard, Marion Dudley, Doc Ring, and Floyd Wlebster. The Home Economics Club helped to bring a great deal of cheer and happiness to the patients of the Hospital for Blind Children in Boston during the Christmas holidays. They made and personally pre- sented various toys to the children. Natalie Dahl- quist was made one of the fortunate Sophomore members of the club by being elected Vice-President. The Dramatic Club presented the play "Fly Away Home." It was a great success and the whole cast The Sea Grill 33 was well commended for their brilliant performance. Among the cast were Bob Diamond and Dick Turner. Earlier in the year the Dramatic Club had executed such plays as, "Crime for Tea" and "The Traveler." That just about polished off our Sophomore year except for a very well executed dance put on by our class. The decorations were good and everyone en- joyed the refreshments. Oh! Those hnal exams. The last two weeks of school were spent in cramming. The only hindrance was the delightful spring weather which led all those with little will-power down to the "Corner." Well, they would have another chance to pass the test next year. JUNIOR YEAR HISTORY GEORGE BALTHAZAR The crisp autumn morning of September 9, 1946 was the quiet beginning of an equally quiet year. With the exception of the disturbances. This was a year of peaceful outlook. The U. N. had been formed and the prospects of world peace were better than at any time since the early thirties. This fact coupled with the relaxing of many war time restric- tions made this year one in which we could think of our futures as something on which we could plan. When we arrived in our classes, we were immed- iately aware of several changes in the teaching staff. Most notable of the changes was the absence of Mr. Morton, one of the best liked teachers in the school. It seems that Mr. Morton developed a fondness for the banking profession which outweighed his love of teaching. We all missed his ever ready humor and helpful guidance. Mr. Morton's place on the faculty was taken by a young man by the name of Mr. Rath- bone who immediately became well liked and was a very welcome consolation for the loss of Mr. Morton. In the science department we found Mr. Holbrook, who after a short stay decided to take ad- vantage of the G. I. Bill and further his education. When Mr. Holbrook left for Harvard, we all missed him a great deal. Mr. Holbrook's place was taken by another young man who will be remembered by most of our parents as the teacher who caused their dear children to commit mayhem on batteries and fur- naces. This young man was Mr. Felix Palubinskas, a great advocate of knowledge through exploration and experimentation. In the history branch the faculty acquired Mr. Harris. Among the new members of our class we discovered such notable persons as jack Wall of St. john's Prep. Jack is one of the finest baseball pitchers in the vicinity. From the country of the big musical horns in Indiana we welcomed the very charming and at- tractive Louanne Ashby. Louanne promptly made herself one of the best liked members of our class. The eventful return of the Carpenter-Durkee duo to our class was an event that could not possibly 'be ignored, they returned to us from private schools with many new methods of annoying teachers and fellow students, The annoyance they caused us was far overshadowed by the amount of pleasantly re- lieving mischief and fun that they injected into sometimes uneventful classroom hours. Due to an impending increase in our class activi- ties, we selected our class officers at this time. After careful consideration we voted Mike Stien our class president, a position he filled ably for the remainder of the year. As vice-president we expressed our con- fidence in the ability of Nancy Williams. The class elected Marcia Brown secretary, a job in which she did marvelously. To the position of class treasurer we sent Phillips Smith who rewarded our faith by doing a near perfect job. Although our class as a whole never excelled as all around students, many of our more industrious members were beginning to discover the joys and re- wards of study. Due undoubtedly to this new interest in scholarly achievement, the junior class was begin- ning to produce some students of excellent ability in many of the fields of science and mathematicsg some of the most promising of the junior students were the Webster brothers, Floyd and Robert, who excelled in 'both math and science. Albert Devitt and Harry Mattera were two other boys of exceptional ability. The girls were well represented by such at- tractive and scholarly people as Nancy Worrall, Nancy Williams, and Judy Morse in the fields of scholastic endeavor which deal with mathematics or science. Unfortunately very few of our class excel in the lield of langiages, this has often caused Mr. Blossom a good deal of despair in dealing with the aspiring junior linguists. The main line of endeavor of our class was un- doubtedly in the lield of athletics. In the field and on the court, the junior class was always well repre- sented by a large number of good athletes, both male and female. The most important and the most suc- cessful, sport was football. Aided indispensibly by a large number of stalwart juniors, the "Sculpinsi' pounded out five wins against four losses to capture the "Northeastern Conference" Championship. The stout-hearted men of our class who were on the team were Frank "Doc" Ring, Floyd and Robert Webster, Mike Stien, Dave and Kenneth Sewall, Robert Bone- fant, Phil Regan, Phillips Smith. john McNary, Knox Robins, William Massidda, Earl Townsend, Wil- fred Colclough, Jay Anderson, George Holt, Whitney Welch, jack Nies, Alan McArthur and George Bal- thazar. Rallies were held before several of the games and movies of the previous contests were shown. The junior cheerleaders who helped keep the team in fighting trim were Robert Diamond, Phyllis Moran, Fay Rhodes, Ann Kitlield, and Robert Fall. Greatly inspired by the "Boosters Club's" huge parade the team went out on Thanksgiving Day and beat Marble- head by the decisive score of 14 to 0. In basketball the team was composed mainly of Juniors and coach Martin looked hopefully at his prospects for the following year. Despite the fact that such members of the junior class as Fred Cooney, 54 The Sea: Gill! Bob Webster, Bob Bonefant, jack Wall, Phil Smith, Earl Barnard, Richard 10 seconds Robinson, and Alan McArthur, were on the team the conference record for the year was four wins and six defeats. In January of 1947 the hockey team made its humble beginning. We hope that it is true that all great things have a humble beginning because the hockey team tied one game and lost eleven. The team was ably coached by Mr. Gannon. The juniors prom- inent in the organization of the hockey team were Phil Regan, Mike Stien, Frank Ring, and jack Nies. Coach Martin's track team competed in a meet on the aircraft carrier Randolph, which made history by being the first civilian track meet ever held on the flight deck of a Navy aircraft carrier. The track team finished last in its other three meets. The members of the junior class represented on the team were Fred Cooney, George McDermott, Phil Regan, Knox Robins, George Holt, and George Balthazar. Mr. Henshaw's golf team was composed largely of juniors. The juniors on the team were lack Nies, Frank Ring, Fred Cooney, and Sumner Hovey. The team did well in competition compiling a record of six wins and three losses. The crowning event of the golf season came when jack Nies won the Massachu- setts Junior State Golf Championship. After a short hunt for a coach, the baseball team got underway under the able guidance of Bernie Friberg. The team consisted of a large number of juniors. Some of the junior stickers were Captain "Doc" Ring, Jack McNary, Bob and Floyd Webster. Bob Bonefant, Tack Wall, Dick Coraine, Dave and Ken Sewall, and Bob Diamond, manager. During the season the team made a record of four wins and six defeats. At the end of the year the captains for our next year's teams were chosen. They were: Frank Ring, captain of footballg Fred Cooney, captain of basketball, and Ken Sewall, baseball captain. The beautiful maids of our class also made a name for themselves on the athletic field and court. The teams of Swampscott ladies became feared throughout the North Shore. The girls' field hockey team was aided by a large number of junior girls. The junior girls on the hockey team were Marilyn Clark, Ann Kitfield, Marcia Brown, Betty Smith, Marion Dudley, Nancy Wil- liams, Fay Rhodes. joan Deming, Sally Merritt, Sarah Kunkel, Ianice Newcomb, Nathalie Dahlquist and Phyllis Moran, manager. The team scored a record of two wins, two ties and two losses. In basketball the girls also were well represented on the team. The junior girls were Betty Smith, Nancy Williams, Marilyn Clark, Marion Dudley, Ann Kitfield, Fav Rhodes, Nat Dahlquist, Marcia Brown, Colette LeComte, Tanice Newcomb, Judy Morse, Ioan Deming, Sally Merrit, and Sarah Kunkel. Between the first and second teams the girls won six and lost six to make it a fifty-fifty proposition. Later the girls tapered off their activities to tumb- ling and gymnastics. The end of the year we found that the captains of next year's teams were: field hockey, Marion Dudley, basketball, Nancy Williams. One of the major happenings of the year of 1946- 47 was the advent of the Band. In our sophomore year, we had been introduced by Mr. Hammond, the new band director, to all the instruments in the band. When we went into the assembly that day few of us knew anything about music. We were shown the dif- ferent types of instruments in the band and invited to learn how to play one. Many of our class enrolled in the band with the idea that they could get out of a few classes. They soon discovered that being in class was easier because Mr. Hammond took his music seriously. With the aid of the Band Parents' Associa- tion and friends the band soon received new uniforms. The band made its debut in our junior year. The band gave a concert for the student body as one of its first public appearances. Everyone who was able to attend was pleasantly surprised. Later in the year the band attended a music festival in Medford, they re- turned to us with a "Superior" rating, Over the period of a year Mr. Hammond welded the raw unskilled material into one of the best bands in the state. The band was constantly growing and improving and at the end of the year it had grown into a large and stable organization. The junior class carried on many successful social activities. Our junior prom was undoubtedly the most successful event of the year, the attendance was large, and everyone had a grand time. Another highly suc- cessful dance was the one held before the Marblehead game in anticipation of the coming victory over the Magicians. Later in the year the junior class put on a highly delightful barn dance which was enjoyed by all. The football team was honored by a testimonial dance given in the gym to celebrate their wonderful season. During the course of the year Mr. Henshaw's Dramatic Club put on two very entertaining plays, "Young April" and "Are We Dressing." Both of the plays were well produced and provided a pleasant detour from daily routine. The members of the Dramatic Club that so ably presented the plays to us during the year were Mar- guerite Riley, Robert Diamond, Knox Robins, Nancy Sutherland, Lorraine Willow, Richard Turner, and Ann Kitfield. The Home Economics club was formed and gave many of our prospective home-makers valuable ex- perience. The travel club sponsored a trip to Wash- ington, D. C. and the valleys of upper Virginia. Everyone who went on the trip gained valuable ex- perience. The trip was chaperoned by Mr. and Mrs. Dunn. - During the year the Swampscotta was ably aided by such junior journalists as Sarah Kunkel, Betty Smith, Barbara Pitts, Nancy Sutherland, Alan Block and many others on the committees. Bill Doll and Ellen Nestor seldom failed to get a well written article in the Swampscotta. The Sea Gull 35 It would be much too much to avoid speaking of our class personalities. Undoubtedly the most talk- ative were Pat Donovan, judy Morse and a few other of our aspiring young ladies. The team of Durkee- Carpenter was always in mischief and kept the school year at a lively tempo. Big Bill Doll with his sharp wits kept us very well informed through his ever present articles in the Swampscotta and his ever ready witticisms. Donald Costin entertained us'all with his accurate portrayals of Lynn's public buildings. After the course of the year had been run as far as exams would let us, we began to study for our finals. The boys studied the merits of the hotdog, ice cream cone and the bottled tonics. The girls, being waistline conscious, confined their studies to more limited amounts. So finally after a year of hard work and plentiful enjoyment we again went into retire- ment for the summer. Thus ends the junior year of the class of "48." SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Rosarvr W. DIAMOND The storied "post-war" period was in full swing. Out in New York the U. N. was struggling through its Fall agenda, Russia was throwing tempermental fits, and this, the illustrious Class of 1948 began its first session as "almighty seniors" on September 8, 1947. We were greeted by Mr. james H. Dunn, whom we had known as a history teacher "par excellence," and who was acting for the first time in his new capacity as Principal. Mr. Dunn took the place of Mr. Lee T. Gray, who retired last Summer with the good wishes of every member of the senior class and every- one connected with Swampscott High School. Mr. Gray was not the only one to leave the salty environ- ment of Swampscott, for one of our favorite mathe- matics teachers and a very popular individual with both boys and girls, Mr. Albert Reinhalter, resigned. Two other instructors who were "among the missing" were Mr. Harris, one of our former history teachers, and Mr. Felix Palubinskas, who introduced us to the abstruse fundamentals of chemistry. Miss O'Keefe, one of the most popular teachers in school, left us, to teach English at Lynn Classical. It cannot be said that these teachers left school because of the prospects of facing us for one more year, for we are possessed of a few talented individ- uals, such at Harry Mattera, who has already been accepted into Brown University, Nancy Worrall and Alan Block, to mention a few. Early in the school year our class elections were held "Smilin' Ken" Sewall was chosen as Senior Class President, and began what has turned out to be a very efficient administration. He has been ably assisted by Vice-President 'Ann Kitfield. Our leading "pencil- pusher," Marion Dudley, was elected Class Secretary, and Richard Turner assumed control of our replete UQ treasury. Besides exceptional scholastic aptitude our class also exhibited many star athletes, and it is due to the leadership of these talented individuals that the populace of Swampscott has been proud of the teams fielded by the school this year. The football team, cap- tained by Floyd Webster and Frank "Doc" Ring, scored a 24-O victory against Winchester to open the season and show its contempt for the reputation of these defending Class C champions. The team was plagued by injuries all seasong but despite this tough luck, emerged victorious over Reading, Amesbury, and Danvers, The staunch line of stalwarts headed by jack McNary and Mike Stien, opened wide holes for "Those Websters," Doc Ring, and Bob Bonefant to sail through and score fwell, once in a while, any- waylj. The fine defensive work of center Phil Regan was rewarded at Amesbury, when he was on the re- ceiving end of a foeman's fumble and ran some ninety yards for the game-winning touchdown. Another lineman, end George MacDermott, scored the only touchdown against Marblehead on a forward pass. The enjoyment of the games was heightened by the band's incomparable melodies and theiintricate gyra- tions of the Drill Team, on which Janice Newcomb, Marcia Brown and Colette LeComte whirled and twirled as the feature attractions behind Betty Smith, the leader. The cheerleading of such inspired girls as Phyllis Moran, Fay Rhodes, and Ann Kitfield, and the acrobatic flips of Richard Robinson and Richard Turner whipped the crowd into a frenzy. Led by the accurate set shots of Captain Fred Cooney and the Bob Bone- dazzling "hooks" of jack McNary and fant, the boys' basketball team Hnished third from the top in the Northeastern Conference. The season at Marble- was highlighted by an added attraction head, where the fans were treated to an impromptu wrestling bout, during the last game of the season. The ice hockey team of the school, in the second year after its rejuvenation, ended up in fifth place in the North Shore League sparked by Phil Regan and Mike Stien, who rocketed cannon-like shots at opposing goal-tenders. Mr. Jordan, Principal of the Hadley School and new baseball coach, inherited a team of championship caliber from Bernie Friberg, which featured the standout pitching of Jack Wall and Dave Sewall, and good fielding by such infield stars as Captain Ken Sewall, plus the power hitting of "Doc" Ring, Dick Coraine, and jack McNary. Our golf team also copped its share of honors, what with Sumner Hovey and "Doc" Ring emulating their captain, Jack Nies, State junior Amateur Golf Cham- pion, and belting the ball far out of sight. The girls' basketball team also rose to the occasion, led by Captain Nancy Williams and the standout play of Marion Dudley, Ann Kitfield and Marilyn Clark, to mention a few. Marblehead was the only obstacle in the way of an undefeated season for the "Floradora" girls. The field hockey team, captained by Marion Dudley, finished up the season with 2 defeats. The games were featured by the blistering shots of Nancy 56 The Sea Gllfl Williams, Ann Kitfield, Janice Newcomb, and Marcia Brown. The games were not as restrained as one might assume, as our "Black-Eyed Susan," Miss Betty Smith, can well testify. Rumor has it that she she "went right to Sleep" when the mishap occured. Everyone who participated in sports during the school year was invited to the gigantic Sports Night Ban- quet on April 10, sponsored by the Swampscott Boosters Club. All who attended had their appetites satisfied fand then somej. Entertainment was fur- nished by the Male Chorus, who sang an amusing original song. The Dramatic Club enjoyed a very successful year, Knox Robins was chosen President of one of the largest turnouts in recent years. In November the one-act play "Grandma Pulls the String" was pre- sented to the school. The play recounted some of the harrowing experiences of Lorraine Willows, who took the part of the harrassed young heroine, and was very much enjoyed by the student body. "Quality Street," a play of the Napoleonic era, was presented as the feature attraction of the Dramatic Club in March. Due in no small part to the superior acting of such seniors as Knox Robins, who played the gal- lant hero, was the great success of the play. Nancy Sutherland was a perfect spinster in the play, and Marcia Brown played a coy, "hard-to-get" UQ young lass. Alan MacArthur was very amusing as a rugged good looking British Sergeant. A portion of the play was presented as the entry from S. H. S. in the Mass- achusetts Drama Festival, held at Gloucester High School in April, and also received very favorable reports there. The School band was acclaimed as one of the best in evidence at Fenway Park this Fall, where they played before a large crowd at the Boston-University- Colgate game. Due to their "sharp" new uniforms and the snappy drill team, they made quite an im- pression on all present. The quality of the music was a determining factor in the fans' appraisal, what with Alan "Arthur" Block and his "two-toned tuba" falias the straining Sousaphonej, that smo-o-o-th man on the tenor sax, Dick Burt, "Big Bill" Doll and his "mangled mellophonef' and Ellen Nestor, who had to carry an immenre horn around. S. H. S., as usual, had a large turnout for the Glee Club this year, and the group was composed of some excellent singers. Thanks to this happy com- bination we had a very impressive group by the time the High School Concert rolled around. The three straining tenors, Turner, Diamond and Massidda, were a'ble to ease up a little this year, because some very promising material has entered school, via the junior High. The male chorus was of top quality this year, and once more was acclaimed a huge success. Who can ever forget Edgar Hobby, Dick Woodman, and john Lilburn growling the "subterranean" bass part in "Po Old Lazerus," one of the favorite selec- tions of the chorus this year? Once again Dick Cor- aine and George Holt were the mainstays of the bari- tone part, and up the tenor section Massidda kept everyone in hysterics with his squirmings and agon- ized facial contortions. The annual concert was pre- sented in March, and enjoyed immensely by every- one, especially the participants. In addition to the im- pressive selections by the entire chorus, the Male Chorus entertained with several well-received num- bers. Outstanding among these was i'The I.ord's Prayer," by Malotte, in which William Israel sang the beautiful tenor solo. The ever-popular band played for thirty minutes at the beginning of the program, to the delight of the audience. In April, the band, under the direction of Mr. Hammond, presented a Spring Band Concert. Ar this session the group played an impressive overture to exhibit the versatility of these musicians, together with the usual band selec- tions, and a deightful popular song, "I'll See You in My Dreams," which they presented to perfection. The comparatively short, snappy program struck the fancy of all who attended. This year, once again, the Vocational 'Arts group of the school presented an original "Hammer and Nail- ers" production. The presentation, produced by Dean "Frith MacArthur, took the form of an amateur tal- ent scout radio program, and featured our own Frank Ring as "Major Bones," Master of Ceremonies. "Doc" looked almost human f?j in a tall hat and tails, and exhibited marked dramatic talent. The technical phase of the program was superbly handled by Charlie Ravell and Dick and Warren McCannon, and the show went off without a hitch. Some genuine talent was unearthed, what with "Bones" Bonefant and Henry Acker exhibiting remarkable ability on the drums and piano, respectively, Henry giving out with some of his wonderful "Boogie-Woogie." "Al jol- son" Sewall as the guest star stopped the show and brought the house down, as he did last year. The "S1uf11fzp.rmmz" was up to its usual high stan- dard this year, and this was due in no small part to the "blood, sweat and tears" of Editor-in-Chief Sarah Kunkel and Business Manager lay Anderson who worked in conjunction with Kay Hannon, the chair- woman of the Advertising Committee. The diligence of Associate Editors Betty Smith and Nancy Suther- land and Alumni Editor Barbara Pitts also were de- termining factors in the success of the publication. Ellen Nestor headed the Humor Staff, which gleaned jokes and witty sayings for us from far and wide. For those beautiful covers and illustrations we are indebt- ed to Ruth Christiansen and her capable Art De- partment. Early this year some brilliant soul conceived the idea of having a Year Book. Undismayed by the problems connected with publishing the first edition of such a Year Book. undeterred by the arguments against same advanced by some of our teachers, we set the machinery in motion, nominating commit- tees, etc., and our problems began, just as had been forecasted. We found that there were deadlines to meet, collections, picture schedules, and myriad other headaches. These obstacles were finally overcome, The Sea G11 however, and we are the first class to leave Swamp- scott High with a Year Book in our hands. The exorbitant cost of the book was defrayed by what turned out to be one of the highlights of the entire school year, the like of which, until this year, had never been seen in Swampscott, a mammoth Var- iety Show. Everyone in school with any talent had some part in the production. In addition to numerous solo selections by especially gifted singers were such group numbers as a "Can-Can" dance, Soft-Shoe dance, comedy dance, and a double male quartet. The show was directed by Mr. Rathbone, who put much time and work into the presentation, to make it such a great success. The school year ended before we quite realized it, and now we have been turned out into the cold, cruel world. Certainly we shall never forget some of our experiences at Swampscott High, such as the recent mild winter, the time we were forcibly reminded genteel society as " those l'7lf6 lockers," nor shall we forget in a hurry the "faithful few" who gathered every day at recess to "take the air" together. In leaving, we would like to wish Mr. Dunn many forthcoming years of success as Principal, and to beg forgiveness from certain frustrated teachers strewn about the premises. And so we take our leave, indubitably the most insensible, laziest, but undoubtedly the happiest group ever to pass through the hallowed portals of Swamp- scott High School.

C., after at- tending the twentieth re-union of the Class of '48 of Swampscott High School. For the beneht of those unfortunates who were unable to participate in the festivities, we are attempting herewith, to bring the re-union to you. The june 11, 1968 issue of LIFE carried an outstanding account of the celebration, re- plete with some priceless pictures. Following is the account, slightly abridged, of the article which ap- peared in LIFE. ' LIFE GOES TO A PARTY. Higher Education in S'LUcZl72p.ft'0fl Comer Down. "The Class of '48 of Swampscott High, known as the Ninety-Nine of '48, returned in great numbers and high spirits to celebrate it's twentieth re-union. S "True to a promise made twenty years ago, when a high hill prevented him from reaching the top of his class, "Doc" Ring, the noted plastic surgeon who has changed so many maps, has now changed the map of Swampscott, the Town Beautiful on the North Shore. Due to "Doc's" untiring efforts and the spirit of the class of '48, the old Swampscott High has now reached a new Low. "For years, the exhaustion caused by climb- ing the mountainous hills leading to those por- tals of higher education left a mark on the pupils of the Senior High School. Unfortunately, noth- ing was ever done about this sad state of affairs until that intrepid band of forty-eighters-the The Sea Gzzll 39 class that was first in so many noble enterprises -decided the time had come for action. Thus, Swampscott High has become the first Beach School for Higher Education." From talking with former classmates still living in Swampscott, we learned that the "Down-with- the-High" movement gained real momentum on the election of jay Anderson, Bob Diamond and Floyd Webster as Directors of General Confusion Qselect- men to you.j These former classmates arranged a meeting with "Doc" Ring about a year ago, and, together with Bill Israel, the Town Clerk, and Erle Townsend, the Town Counsel, planned the bold move. It was with feelings of genuine happiness and pride in a glorious achievement that the day on which the High came Down was proclaimed as the day for the twentieth re-union of the Class of '48, and the day was given over to wild merry-making. Credit for the delicate work of transferring the High to it's new Low-cation should be given to the local contracting lirm of Leone and Ravell. These former muscle-men did a splendid job. The new site, by the Big Drink on Fisherman's Beach, was put in readiness by a few of the old Hammer-and-Nail boys, ably led by Alan McArthur and the McCannon boys, Richard and Warren, now parteners in the Merry- Macs Construction Company. The local carpenter and builder, "Maggot" McDermott, did an excellent piece of work in building a small edifice known as the "Butt House." This is to take the place of the old stone wall out front, which was the habitat of that type of creature known as the "Butt Fiend," at ap- proximately 8.25 A.M. and 2:15 P.M. each day, Monday through Friday. "Maggot" said that jim Powers and Dick Davidson were invaluable to him in drawing up the plans. A word should be said concerning the surround- ings of the school. Close by, in fact next door, is the famed Anti-Insomnia Mattress Factory, owned and operated by "Sleepy" Webster. The former Betty Smith, "Sleepy's" attractive wife, made the comment that it was super having the High right next door, for the twins, "Yawn" and "Stretch," could just flop over and land at the entrance. Directly across the street is a small amusement park. Surprised? So were we. Dr. John McNary, now a local Eye Specialist, removed all those eye sores that formerly faced the beach and the new little park is most attractive. There are a number of unique places of amusement in it, but the Merry-Go-Round is outstanding. Instead of horses or other animals for the kiddies to ride 'round and 'round, those ex- cellent sculptors, William Gould and Richard Rob- inson, originated some very fine replicas of well- known school teachers, down on their hands and knees. The children seem to take a sort of iiendish delight in riding these figures, kicking their feet energetically and flicking their whips realistically. This eMerry-Go-Round, or Teachers-Go-Round as it is most often called, is run by Dick Coraine, with Marion Dudley taking the tickets, so it seems they are still going 'round together. The Dance Palace is another popular feature, due mainly to Dick Burt's small but noisy orchestra, billed as "Nick Nostalgia and his Nine Nasty Nose-bleedersf' Star vocalist with this fine little group is Mary Pickard, who, while she never made a sound in school, has an ex- cellent bass voice. The House of Mirth is run by Fred Cooney, who always got a laugh out of life. His chief stooge is none other than Dick Gallagher. The "Dodge-Em" concession has jay Anderson Qlocal selectmanj as manager. jay is on duty to re- pair any bent fenders, a talent he had plenty of chance to develop during his high school days. Strangely enough, all of the cars of his establishment are pale green with darker green trimmings. This makes an attractive color scheme, blending in with the stains on the floor where some unfortunates weren't able to "dodge-em." The Pool Hall, admitting only juvenile delinquents, is owned by our old friend "Frit" McArthur, and is appropriately called "Fritter Your Time Away." "Frit" has employed a former classmate, Miss janet Spurr, to entice unsuspecting victims into his place of evil. Janet seems to be doing all right, too, taking such complete charge that "Frit" is free to follow his hobby of writing skits for radio. The Committee in charge of plans for the great re-union deserves unstinted praise for the smooth and efficient handling of all details. This Committee was under the capable leadership of our former class president, Kenny Sewall, now a successful Lynn Dentist. Betty Grimes, matron at the Lynn Boy's'Club, had charge of tickets and reservations. 'Advertising was placed in the competent hands of Kay Hannon, fa charming and discerning hostess, we've been toldj with Ann Kitrield and joan Deming, career girls, to take some of the load from Kay's weary shoulders. Kay contacted Lorraine Willows, whose famous Reducing Salon advertises "You, too, can have that Willowy Look," to take charge of distribut- ing some artfully drawn posters. These were placed in strategic points about town, such as Lilburn's High Class Apothecary fformerly Eaton'sjg the plumbing establishment of Kenny Lundstromg the Public Li- brary, with Joyce Haskell as head librarian, and that up-and-coming liquor store, known as Curry's Gin Mill. It has been whispered about that Eddie and his stalwart assistants, Earl Barnard and George Holt, have made a staggering success of the mill. The merry making of the great day commenced with a massive parade winding through the streets of the town. Chief of Police, jack Wall, rode his scooter at the head of the parade, and Park Com- missioner, Harold Fall, aided jack in clearing the streets of revelers. Marcia Brown was the Head Drum Majorette and did a splendid piece of work, throwing her four foot silver baton, fthe gift of her fourth husbandj up in the air almost as successfully as she threw the "bull" in the old Senior History Class. 40 The Sea Gull Assistant Drum Majorettes, who displayed their strutting ability in uniforms a wee bit snug, were Fay Rhodes, Nat Dahlquist, joan Griffin and Laur-. etta Shore, all gay members of the Young Married Set. The routs of the parade followed the main, drag- Humphrey Street - and it was interesting to note the many business establishments run by members of our old class. The town's up and coming newspaper, "Swampscotta" has as it's Editor-in-Chief, Miss Sarah Kunkel, EWE, NFNH and MIF, who has with her in her work many old friends holding down impor- tant positions. Ruth Christiansen take full charge of all art work and pictures of the thriving little daily, Marilyn Clark and Phil Regan handle the sporting news, advertising is handled by the experienced Madeline Marino, with Priscilla Bradley as assistant. A few of Sarah's live wire reporters are Catherine Pierson, Eileen Kearney and Skippy Devitt. A neon sign flashed this message from a small factory along the parade route: In heating methods, be up to date, Dial LYnn 5-2148, And learn of Robins' Hot Air Heat, That makes each winter day a treat. A little farther along, we spotted the beautiful little Horist shop of Ralph DiLisio, who by the way specializes in Four Roses. Ralph has as his assistants, gardeners Michele Bounanduci and William Mc- Donald. The parade, as it neared the new school site, was interrupted briefly by the arrival of Brad Ingalls in a flaming Rocket Ship, ironically named "Ball of Fire." Brad bailed out, fortunately unhurt, and the local Fire Chief, George "Itchy" Balthazar, was on hand to extinguish the flames. Nurse Mary Dunn quickly revived some of the more delicate on-lookers who fainted and became panicky at the sight of the flaming ship. During the afternoon, many notables of the class spoke briefly of their school days. fToo many teachers were present to permit the speakers full reign.j Pat Donovan, the lirst woman ever to be elected Speaker of the House, couldn't give her speech - she had laryngitis and couldn't say a word. fMany former teachers present couldn't believe this.j Her place on the program was taken 'by that eminent orator and lecturer, Wilfred Elwin Colclough. Other speakers were Gordon Dennis, nationally known radio com- mentator, Sally Merritt, Hollywood star and famous knitter, and Judy Morse, president of the PTA, president of Swampscott Woman's Club, and chair- man of the School Committee. Uudy is out to see that her seven daughters get an educationj The air rang with oratory all afternoon and a for- mer English teacher was heard to remark, "What a day, not a participle left dangling." At the close of the exercises, a few of the old I. group of "Esther's Pesters," now grown a bit more portly and higher of forehead, rendered a number of selections. We'd like to be able to report how they sounded after all these years, but the wind was favorable and we couldn't hear them. The highlight of the day's events was the Banquet held that evening at the New Ocean House, now owned and operated by none other than Sumner Hovey, with Edgar Hobby as Head Chef. fTo see Edgar in a chef's hat standing triumphant over a dead lobster is something, but we are getting ahead of our story.j The hotel has been entirely remodeled and re- decorated, most of the work having been done by Rita Ronzano, noted decorator. We were especially intrigued by the dining room, where she used a strik- ing banana-split motif. It was fun wandering through the Lobby and recognizing old classmates. Mike Stien, now president of the Intellectual Dunkers of America, and as genial as ever, was the official greeter. As each former class mate came into the dining room, Mike announced the name and told, in his own inimitable way, what each one was doing now and where living, etc. In this way, we learned that Bob Bonefant is coach at Marblehead High. Bob says he took the job so he could protect the Swamp- scott Coaches and players when they clash with the Magic Makers. Dick Woodman is still the perennial bachelor and the answer to the prayers of the girls in the junior Class, Barbara Barker, a former Sar- gent girl, is a Gym teacher, Alan Block, whose Latin Textbook is now standard equipment in all kinder- gartens, gave a witty little speech in Latin in re- sponse to Mike's introduction and was roundly ap- plauded. Richard Hobden, looking weird in a beard, went around the entire table and handed everyone his card, which read- Richard Hobden, F. B. M. fFuller Brush Manj Unique are our brushes, They really have brains, They clean around corners, And also down drains. Little Nancy "Willy" Williams proved a big sur- prise. The mother of quadruplets, Willy is back teaching Math in Ma White's place-said she found Math formula easier than baby food formula. Remember Marguerite Riley? Well, she's a scream. We mean it. She works for N.B.C. and does all the screaming on their horror programs. Louanne 'Ashby was there in a gownless evening strap designed by Anne Gambale, famous Boston designer. Louanne is a wealthy widow and wore so many diamonds she looked like Sparkle Plenty. Eleanor McCarty came in with Barbara Pitts and Nancy Sutherland. Eleanor was recently voted a Woman of Distinction. What a picture, what a frame! Barbara and Nancy are partners in a small but well paying venture. Always having been artistic, the The Sen Gull 41 girls are now making hand painted railroad ties for an exclusive clientelle. Nancy Myers, always a high flyer, is now an airline hostess. Before we forget it, a word about the sumptuous feast. Lobsters galore, baked broiled or boiled. These luscious crustaceans were provided by Dumbo Holmes, owner of the largest fleet of lobster boats on the North Shore. Ellen tells me not to forget the charming table setting. What she really means is that each woman guest found at her place a tiny bottle of priceless perfume, with this verse attached- If you desire to scentillate, And some poor male you'd fascinate, Use "Reckless" or "Passion Flower," Glamour scents for every hour. Women who know their way about, All endorse "Attack de Snout," To catch him firmly in your net, Use perfumes made by La Collette. Mme. Lecomte has made quite a success of her perfume business, as was evident from her clever advertising. After the meal, Mike read telegrams from those who could not be present. Dave Sewall, star pitcher with the Dirty Sox, then playing in Timbuctoo, sent regards and regrets. He planned to attend, but bad flying weather kept him grounded. Frank Trask wired from Hollywood where he was supervising the film- ing of his latest mystery story, "The Case of the Burning Bridge," or "Who put that cigarette in Grandpa's False Teeth?" A cable was received from I-Iarry Mattera, noted scientist, and his assistant, Nancy Worrall. They were in Europe to receive the Nobel prize in Chemistry. johnny Nies also cabled from Europe, where he was playing golf before the crowned heads-in fact, it is said he crowned many of them. When Mike read that johnny said he hoped to win the British Crown, Phyl Moran, whose little robin's egg blue taxi broke traffic laws all day long bringing guests to the festivities, said "If johnny gets the British Crown, will that make him King of England ?" Good old Phyl, she hasn't changed a bit. Someone asked about Bill Massida and we were told that he was confined to his home with a severe shoulder injury. Bill, the local barber, fractured his shoulder while trying to sing a high note. The waiters wheeled in a large Television Set and before we knew what was happening, we were see- ing and hearing Dick Turner, America's No. 1 Croon- er, and his accompanist, Frances Goldberg. What a treat! After Dick's number, a dancer of great charm and grace flashed on the screen. Wild applause discovered it was our own has tapped her way to fame her troupe, of which Ethel are internationally known. died down, Mike announced that he would now call on some of the celebrities present, and I heard my name called. A voice, edged with sarcasm, was saying, "William, has it ever oc- curred to you that you come to school to study, not to sleep?" Hazily, I got to my feet and stammered, "I'm sorry, sir, but I don't think I heard your ques- tion. I must have been dreaming." I NVAS. greeted her when we Janice Newcomb, who and fortune.

It is the first, if not the best, at Swampscott High. The present seniors have left it to the future seniors to improve upon. A good Yearbook is a pictorial record of the life in the school years and it demands good photography. We were very limited as to professional photographers to turn in all the pictures that were needed. In order to remedy this in the future, the Camera Club will be a great asset to those planning a Yearbook in the years to come. The pictures in a good Yearbook should include those who participated in athletics, drama, music, and other similar clubs and also pictures of the dances and social events throughout the years. The problem of money was presented for considera- tion to the Yearbook staff and the class. As most can guess, a Yearbook is quite an expensive project. In order to provide the funds, the Senior Class staged The Sea GHZ! 45 THE SWAMPSCOTTA STAFF First row treading from leit to rightl - Barbara Pitts, Ruth Christiansen, Carol Snow.

Harvey Spiller, Robert Lever, Edward Goodstein a Variety Show, the first of its kind, under the direc- tion of Mr. Rathbone, which gave many talented students an opportunity of being in the show. The program was highlighted by the rich tenor voice of Dick Turner, the ballet of Janice Newcomb, a comi- cal number featuring Knox Robins and Janice New- comb, some members of the male chorus, dancers, Doc Ring and Bill Massidda, the latter who wrote the script, plus many other exciting acts. When the money was obtained and the type- written material was finally on its way to the printers, the staff sighed and hoped for the best. Although perhaps this hasn't been the ideal Year- book, under the circumstances, the staff did the best they could with the material. It is a great improvement over the usual june issue of the SWAMPSCOTTA. We leave the SEA GULL with the future seniors, so that they may improve it and carry on the tradition in the years to Come. THE SWAMPSCOTTA STAFF The first issue of the Swampscotta came out just before the Thanksgiving holidays. The theme of the magazine dealt mostly with the school activities such sports, band, drill team, etc., and the editors breathed sighs of relief when the first magazine was over and done with. The second issue which came out a few days before our February vacation had a charming blue and silver cover by Margaret Hake, the image of jack Frost which was at that time very significant since we were digging our way out of the many snowstorms. This issue was centered around winter sports, the famous birthdays of February, fantasy and St. Valentines Day. The third and last Swampscotta was issued before April vacation with many thoughts on Washington trip and the end of school, especially for the Seniors. With jonquils on the cover, the issue was quite spring- like. And so with the last word edited, the Swamp- scotta Issue passed into the hands of the beloved students. 46 The Sea Gull THE BAND This school year has seen the ofiicial launching of the Swampscott High School Band, under the able direction of Donald C. Hammond. The band, which was the product of nearly a year's earnest work by Mr. at the first football game of the season, and was greeted with much enthusiasm by students and towns- people alike. At the close of the football season, plans were completed for a busy concert schedule, which was most successful. The band made many public ap- pearances, among which were the Glee Club Con- certs of both the Junior and Senior High Schools, and before such organizations as the Woman's Club, Parent-Teacher Association, Rotary Club, and Red Cross, Undoubtedly, the highlight of the year was the First Annual Band Concert presented on April second at the High School. The program was inter- esting and variedg evidence that the band is a versa- tile organization, excelling on the concert stage as well as on the marching-field. This first year of band activities, culminating with the appearance of the organization at the Massachu- setts Music Festival in Lawrence, Massachusetts, on May eighth, has resulted in a wave of enthusiasm throughout the town. We may feel sure that our Swampscott High School Band will earn many more honors in the future to heap upon those laurels already gathered.

Q CAMERA CLUB At the suggestion of Edgar Hobby, Mr. Held agreed to advise and encourage a Camera Club. The organization meeting was held on the second week in january. Thirty pupils turned up at the meeting to become members. Mr. Held explained the aims and objectives of the group. Then the following were elected: President, Edgar Hobbyg vice-president, David Gordong secretary, Beryl Doliberg treasurer, Leonard Bloomberg. It was voted that the meeting be held the first Fri- day of the month. At a special meeting of the oHicers, it was planned for a. monthly contest of photographs to be entered by the club members with cash prizes to the winners, and red ribbons for the honorable mention. The first contest winner was Lucky Letkemann, who entered a color photo of the Gloucester Fisher- man. He won 32.00. The contest photos are judgegd by commercial and amateur photographers. This is the first year S. H. S. has ever had a Camera Club. Mr. Held is sure the club will be better next year because the club will have more accessories such as film, printing paper, enlarger, and all the parts that go with photography. The club will also have its own darkroom. The Camera Club will always 'be behind the SWAMPSCOTTA to bring its pictures of the school's activities for the enjoyment of all.

BASEBALL REPORT XVILLIAM DOLL The Swampscott High baseball team got off to an auspicious start in the 1948 season by winning both of their exhibition games. They won over the Legion 3-2, and repelled St. Mary's in a hard fought contest, 4-3. On April 27th, Newburyport invaded Sculpinville for the opening game of the Northeastern Confer- ence. If ever there was a surprised group of boys, it was the Ioppas as they packed their bats and left for home. All Newburyport could do against the of- ferings of Swampscott's ace pitcher, jack Wzill, was get two bingles while Jack fanned 20. Meanwhile, the big bats of the S. H. S. boomed out a decisive 8-0 victory over the Newburyporters. Captain Ken Sewall and Gordon Clapp led the Sculpin offensive, each getting a single and a triple, Coraine also rapped out two singles. This years team is composed of many veterans, such as Sewall, Ring, Coraine, McNary, Wall, Bone- fant and Dave Sewall, plus such standout juniors and Sohpomores as Gainley, LeBlanc, Robinson, Mc- Cathern, Kurpes and Clapp. Unfortunately, due to an injured ankle, "Doc Ring hasn't been able to play the brand of ball that he played in previous years, but the work of Clapp and Gainley is more than offsetting this. The pitch- ing staff is headed by jack Wall, who is ably sup- portedlby Bonefant, McCathern, Robinson, Dave Sewall and newcomer Clapp. As this goes to press, Swampscott High has played and won their hrst two conference games and with this good start and the around excellence of the team, it is the concensus of opinion that Coach Jordan has championship material and everyone is anticipating a successful season. 1948 Baseball 36116117116 Swampscott 8-Newburyport 0 Swampscott 9-Amesbury 8 Swampscott 15-Danvers 2 Swampscott 4-Marblehead 5 Swampscott 7-Wintlurop O Swampscott --Newburyport Swampscott -Amesbury Swampscott -Gov.

GlRL'S BASKETBALL The girls' basketball team of '48 really deserves a cheer this year as they came through winning the title of the "North Shore Feminine Championship" with seven wins and one defeat. The schedule was a difficult one to tackle yet the girls came through with Barbara Easterbrooks as high scorer with 59 points to her credit, while Betty Smith tossed in 49 points and Nancy Williams came through with 47 points. Marilyn Clark tallied 33 points. The varsity guards rate special congratulations for their splendid court work. Faith Herwitz proved her- self to be one of the most valuable players on the squad and she was Well assisted by Fay Rhodes, Marion Dudley and Ann Kitlield. The only loss that the "Floradora girls" suffered was to Marblehead but the 'Headers had previously fallen to our maidens and to Winthrop, thus S. H. S. came through victoriously. The season was one to remember and those who shall never forget it are the seniors of '48. Best of luck to the girls' basketball squad of 1949 and here's hoping you keep up the good reputation of former years. We, the basketball team of '48, wish to express our appreciation to Coach Flora McLearn for her careful and excellent guidance and all she has done to give the girls a top ranking basketball and hockey squad.
