The Brightest dawn has pushed Away the fears of ignorant Let thy tides far carry Me to see the rising sun. I feel the ray of Warmth, The horizon's bright and Clear. QW QQ? G' D. H. Brock GYIN T T' ,. THENEW , l non 'ff INASIUM Qgyjk Qs The Alumni Gymnasium The Alumni Gymnasium, built with the gener- ous gifts of the Alumni, friends, and the Charles Hayden Foundation, is the first new building Thompson Academy has seen since the construc- tion ofthe three dormitories in 1911-1. It is a massive, white, wood structure with an arched roof held in place by 7 laminated Wooden arches, each weighing in the vicinity of 6000 pounds. The central part of the gym houses a regu- lation size basketball court, 3 storage rooms, and a drying room. On the upper floor there are two locker rooms, two shower rooms, an office, and the main lobby. On the left as one enters the lobby, there is a mahogany trophy case donated by the Massachusetts Bay Yacht Club Association. The entire building occupies an area of 18,000 square feet and is the northernmost structure on the island. It was built by the William Bailey Com- pany and designed by architects Rich and Tucker. 3 .ILIII-V .,4..II. :ff rn. . I HM, I, I , I I I I 'yy-A '10, ' Mfg . 4 fha .1 mg 3, ,, N I .

It is the sincere hope of the Trustees, Alumni, and the Staff that the envisioned Reno- vation and Development Programs, now on the drawing boards, will be in existence in time for our 150th Anniversary in 1964. Some of these projects are a complete face-lifting and modernization of the Main Building, refurnishing the boys Dormitories, creating a new Laundry, establishment of a first class Laboratory in the Power House, establishment of a first class wood working shop and Mechanical Drawing Room on the second floor of the Power House Building, building of four new Dormitories, building a modern and up-to-date Classroom unit which will contain the additional classrooms needed for expansion, a first class library, vitally needed Shop areas fautomotive, metal, machinej, Faculty living quarters, two more athletic fields, etc. On top of all of this, we must find added sources of revenue to maintain the program and strong efforts are being made by the Trustees to face up to this harsh reality. We have a forward looking program and are diligently working to implement it. It is all worthless, however, unless we have the boys who can inspire us to work with and for them. The Class of 1961 is such a Class and it is my pleasure to wish them God-Speed in their ventures out into the world. It has been real fun working with them and may they always think kindly of us. H.

Not P1ctured FRANK MERCIER Class History The year 1961 marks the first graduating class that has gone through the four year curriculum since the name Farm and Trades School was changed to Thompson Academy in 1956. As a class We feel proud to be this class and hope that our memory is perpetuated on through the classes to follow. As Freshmen we elected Larry Matson President, Carleton Hill Vice President, and Harold Hanna Secretary-Treasurer. As Sophomores We elected Vlfilliam Poulack President, Carleton Hill Vice Presi- dent, George Sayer Treasurer, and Thomas Parker Secretary. As Juniors We elected Thomas Parker President, Jerry King Vice President, and Robert Hanes Secretary-Treasurer. Harold Hanna and Larry Matson were chosen Stu- dent Council representatives. It was in this year that the Beatnik Dance, the Christmas Auction, and the Fall Hayride were sponsored by the Junior class. The class also made a substantial contribution toward the purchase of the score clock in the Alumni Cym- nasium. Members of the class participated in all events and were active in Varsity ath- letics. As Seniors we elected Thomas Parker President, Larry Matson Vice President, Harold Hanna Treasurer, and Robert Hanes Secretary. Harold Hanna was chosen Student Council President and Michael Veglas was the senior Student Council repre- sentative.

Starting off with Coach ,lack L. Maddox and an entirely new set of ,plays the Commodores sparked for their first undefeated season in more than five years. With the arrival of fullback, Phil Strother, and Halfback, Robert lldefonso, the backfield gained strength and speed unmatched by any team on the schedule. Strother, who was famous for his long touchdown runs and strong defensive tackling, was named HAH Schoolboyw in the Boston district by X' 1 V r ,.L.a.l. I I HI the Boston Herald. Bob Ildefonso with his strong end runs characterized the Thompson team and their chiefly ground offense. Ends, Cohen and Woods, did not see too much passing action, but both scored on a few aerial attacks called by quarterback, Ralph Patterson. With the loss of Matson, Cohen, Strother, Ildefonso, Hanna, and Mitchell from the first team, Coach Maddox will have a big rebuilding job on his hands in 1961. He will be working with some vet- eran starters and a Well-polished second team and is confident though that next year's team will be as good as the '60 squad. . ,. ' .

Football The Junior Commodores pushed forth to vic- tory with five wins and one tie in the Varsity's shadow. The Middlesex and Roxbury Latin games at the beginning of the season had many thrills and tense moments as the boys began to warm up and show teamwork. Rivers couldn't score against our line and went home tired and score- less. Governor Dummer put up a hard fight, keeping the air tense until the end but they couldn't close the gap. The second Roxbury Latin game indicated very well what a season's experience and practice could do for the JV's, crowning our season 20 to 6. L Wi T CA PT.

Basketball W The ,I.V., the first year an actual squad, as such, was organized, did remarkably well against some tough opponents. Starting center, Bob Marston certainly did an excellent job under the boards, beside being a crack shot from either corner. An added asset to the squad was tall man, Billy Maddox, who got his share of rebounds and jumps. A starting team, other than the two mentioned would be difficult to name. Craig, Gaucher, Richardson and Bernie Woods, could usually be found in the first lineup. T. A. Opp. T. A.
