The Class of 1965 wishes to show our appre-
ciation to Mrs. Belle Urie. Your Contribu-
tions, although quiet, were very necessary.
You have provided us with clean clothes and
linen weekly, an almost thankless job, and
this class is proud to point it out. You have
made our stay a pleasant one, and once again
we wish to express our appreciation. Thank
The Senior Class of 1965 wishes
to dedicate this Islander to Thompson
Academy. To the students, Thompson
is more than just a place to go to
and learn. We think of Thompson as
a way of life-a way of life that we
will always remember.

There are m any problems
which confront us as we pass
through high school. There are
many people whom we, the stu-

vice. The one person who plays
the greatest part in our daily life
at school is Mr. Thomas.
We, the senior class, would like
to thank you, Mr. Thomas, for
your help and advice. We feel
that your help will be of 'great

The Senior Class would like to
take this opportunity to extend
our sincere thanks to you, Mr.
Pearl, for all that you have given
us during our years at Thompson
The process of learning is a
never ending road, with many de-
tours and stop-signs to confront
us before we reach our final goal.
Without your constant help, we
would not have made it through
this section of the road.
We, the senior class, extend to
you our deepest thanks.

In 1961 the Senior Class of 1965 came to Thompson Academy and elected Kenny Harris as
president of the Freshman Class. The position of vice president of the Freshman Class was
filled by Rodney Davis while the post of secretary-treasurer was awarded to Ken Parker. Don-
ald Maragioglio and Richard Mottau were elected as the freshman student council members.
As sophomores, the class sponsored the first successful dance on the mainland in recognition
of Saint Patrick's Day. That year they elected Pedro Ramos as their president, Joe Gorman as
vice president, Donald Maragioglio as secretary-treasurer, and Robert Duncan and Kenny Par-
ker as representatives in the Student Council. That year's class was especially proud of winning
the class games in basketball.
The year before graduation the juniors energetically applied themselves in making their junior
year a fine example of T.A. achievement. The first Bohemian Dance was held and turned out to
be a smashing success, with Mr. Dave Brock portraying the authentic beatnik and chaperoning
this affair. Two other dances held that year were sold out long in advance. In athletics the juniors
were by no means lagging as they stole the class softball championship first from the other classes
and then from the faculty. The members of this class comprised over 7029 of the varsity team
members. As juniors, they elected Donald Maragioglio as president, Robert Duncan as secretary-
treasurer and Kenny Parker, Pedro Ramos, and Donald Maragioglio as student council repre-
As seniors, the graduating class of 1965 made this year one to be long remembered for its ath-
letic, academic, and leadership qualities and the high grade of excellency attained in all of these.
After a very fine football season, the seniors held a Football Victoiy Dance which was most suc-
cessful. Later in the year they had a second Bohemian Dance and a third dance at the end of
the year, both of which were great successes. Later in the year the Senior Class staged the first
cl-ass play, f'The Devil and Daniel Websterf, which was an impressive and entertaining exhibi-
tion. After Christmas two auctions were sponsored by the seniors to raise money for the 1965
yearbook. The varsity squad, composed mostly of seniors, had a 4-3 record at the end of the foot-
ball season. The seniors, virtually unchallenged, swept the class games in softball and basketball.
They achieved one of the highest academic standings in years, with over half of the Senior Class
achieving an 80 average or better. The class officers in the senior year were Donald Maragioglio,
president for his second year, Fred Schoomaker, vice president, J oe Gorman, secretary-treasurer,
and Kenny Parker, Arthur Goss, and Jack Fiedler, representatives in the Student Council.

Larry came to Thompson Academy in the fall of 1963 from West Barn-
stable, Mass., as a Freshman. During his year at Thompson he was a consistent
honor roll student. He spent the majority of his spare time working in the
Hobby Shop or in the Sloyd Room on various models and his science fair
project. His work was rewarded by an honorable mention in the school Science
Fair. Later in the year he won a third prize in the Public Speaking Contest.
The most significant action of Larryas stay at Thompson was his originating the
idea of establishing a fund by which the Protestant Youth could support and
educate an Indian boy. This fund is named the Lawrence Pinson Fund in
memory of him.

The Varsity Football Team was very successful this year with
a 4--3 record. The Thompson team of twenty-eight players,
though not very experienced, possessed a .great deal of desire.
Good running and team spirit captured our first three wins
of the season, and after a two game losing streak bounced
back to win again. ln Thompson,s last and toughest game of
the season, undefeated Thayer Academy proved too strong an
opponent against our spirited team.

The Coefficient football team ended its season with three wins and three ties. Thirty
boys took part in the program. The team as a whole was much smaller physically than
in other years but made up for its size with spirit and determination. For most of the
squad this was their first taste of organized football. Many of the boys will play with
the varsity next year.
Coaches, Ray Thomas. and Herb Carey, were very pleased with the results of the
season and the spirit and desire of all the members of the squad. The coefficient team,
coached by Ray Thomas, has lost one game out of eighteen during the past years. Con-

The third annual Public Speaking Contest was held in
May of 1964 and was one of the most successful events
of the year. The participants ranged from grades eight
through twelve and composed two divisions. For two
hours the chapel was filled with speeches of some ot to-
morrow's future orators. The number of speakers set a
new record of participants in the contest. building a
strong foundation for the following year's contests, whicn
we hope to see even more students participate.

The Hobby Shop, begun last year, offers the students a wide variety of enjoyment.
The boys are given the necessary time for guidance and provided with space in which
to work. The students build models, work on Science Fair projects, and operate
a ham radio station when the shop is open. Working with the radio and practicing the
codes give many boys the opportunity to get licensed as ham radio operators.
Adjoining the Hobby Shop is the Sloyd Room. This room, in existence since
1917, has the facilities for turning out many fine pieces of art. Formerly Sloyd
was a regular class, but now the shop is open only in the afternoons. During these
afternoons the students are free to make what they wish. The finished pieces range from
model boats to living room furniture. Instruction of these two activities is directed
by Mr. Carter and Mr. Cormier.

The 1965 Band Members
Richard St. Jock-Baritone
MR. WILLIAM REEVES
The band this year undertook the task of re-building itself. After two years of
unorganized playing, the band, with the help of Director Reeves and the Quincy
Legion Post Band, went on a few parades and played at graduation. Losing only
six members this year the band should be able to build up its membership within
a year. The band hopes that in time, and with practice, they can regain the privilege
of playing at Fanueil Hall in May.

The Class of '65 dedicates this page of the Islander to the memory of Bror Y.
For over 46 years Mr. Kihlstrom gave most generously of his many talents to the
boys of Thompson Academy. He will be remembered by all as being a man of vast
patience, with a ready willingness to help all boys turned to him, a man of keen wit,
a genius at understanding, and a man possessed of great, quiet dignity.
His creative talent in Sloyd, his musicianship, and his broad character have served
us all well down through the years. We are better people for having been privileged
to know this most wonderful man.
