We thought it would be better appreciated and more enjoyed by the student body. It meant a lot of work. There was more work than during the days of the magazine, and the time for the preparation of material was lessened. However, we were confident that we could swing it. It covered all the events of the year in a way that was more interesting than ever before, because now it was not just a remem¬ brance, it was news. It is of great interest to look through these past Netops, and to pick out the high-lights of this school year. Do you remember these? :— BLANKET TAX PLANNED FOR T. F. H. S. STUDENTS T. F. H. S.

We came to you with all of life ahead And now depart with little of it done. Always in our hearts which you have won Will be that thought, “Not finished just begun.” Our Alma Mater. We always found you bearing all the load While we enjoyed good times of which we’ll dream, And willingly you shared each childish scheme Yet always making truth and patience gleam, Our Alma Mater. We go and leave the realm of mental food Though there remains a debt too great to pay; How can we reach the goal some future day With none to guide, to guard—Oh let us stay! Our Alma Mater. Through life you’ll be to us a guiding star Though now we bid to you a fond farewell Your influence on us the years will tell; Your part is done, may we do ours as well, Our Alma Mater.

' ■+ Phyllis Gunn Page 30 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 19 3 4 ®fje Class iMstorp HAT obstreperousness was going on in good old Turners Falls High School. There came to pass a dusting and sweeping that was unusual. The desks were varnished as they had never been varnished before. The school shivered with such industry inside. Why? It was September 1930 and the renowned class of 1934 was entering the next day. The next morning, a few hours before opening time, the principal and teachers were all dressed up in their best bibs and tuckers, as my old friend Hathaway T. Prendergast would say, to greet our honorable selves. At the appointed time we did arrive and our illustri¬ ous personages were escorted to our rooms on the second and third floors. During the day we noticed the awe and respect given us, for were we not the class of ’34? Says Mr. Sprinklefield Zilch, one of the typical frosh of the class of ’34: “To each soph that they met they would bellow, ‘Hi there, old sock-in-the-wash, old fellow!’ But they got a surprise Which made them realize That they should have said only, ‘Hello’.” Days passed, and we swept along our noble paths to fame. Came the Freshmen Reception. Quite a few of the historic class of ’34 attended, and went through the customary rituals, and then danced. We swung gracefully about the dance floor — well anyway we swung about it. Says Sprinklefield Zilch of this affair: “To some couples it was just a dream; To others, three plates of ice cream. Many things it could be, But on one, all agree, The freshmen were really a scream.” While freshmen, we, of course, were a little frivolous. At times we would become bored with work and then things would pop. I again quote from Sprinklefield Zilch for an example. “Some bored frosh in a class that is dry— ‘This is awful, let’s start something,’ they sigh. And, boy, did they have fun! In a hole in the ground they now lie.” es it was quite an interesting class, all right. We must have been a very nice class too, lor alter ten months of school, the authorities presented us with a two months’ vacation plus the title of sophomores when we should return. Of course, you must realize, we were the great class of ’34 anyway. Because of these pleasing arrangements, we decided to honor them with our presence in the fall. We found many duties staring us in the eye upon our return. We elected class officers and discussed what the official ring of our famous class would be like. Then, we put on our 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 31 first social, the Sophomore Social. It was well conducted. The ice cream company helped us make it an original social by sending us ten quarts instead of the usual ten gallons. Says Sprin- klefield Zilch of this social: “This social was quite an affair, And a great many students were there; As many had guessed Of all this was best And the dance music filled the night air.” You see, Sprinklefield Zilch says it was good. You’re not supposed (you’re not supposed— you’re notsup—you’re notsu—you’re nots—you’re nuts—you’re nuts etc.) to doubt anything he says. Well, this sophomore class swept on along the road to fame, just as the class before us had done, only they were sweeping it for us. Weeks passed, and the novelty of being sophomores had long before worn off. Seeing we were disatisfied, and, of course not wanting to lose such a fine class, the authorities granted us another two months’ vacation with the title of juniors, which supercedes that of sophomores. We condescended to accept. So, in September, 1932, there we were, back in the old school. This year, two things were laid out for us, the Prom and Prize Speaking. The general idea of the Prom was decided on in December, and how we did work on decorations! The cla ss of ’34, destined to fame, must present an original Prom. Easy. Make the decorations in a new way. Then we took a trip, and, on returning, brought back the report that it was practically impos¬ sible in any other way than by using the panels, frills, and back drop. But, however, determined to break precedent, we, instead of hiring the same orchestra as a matter of course, looked sev¬ eral over. The music committee finally decided on one that was a wow—pardon me—that was especially delightful. Sprinklefield Zilch expresses the general opinions and feelings about the Prom. “In the merry merry month of May, Said the juniors, ‘How’re we doing, please say,’ Said the seniors, ‘Hey, hey!’ Said the sophomores, ‘Okay!’ Said the freshmen, ‘I want to come too’.” Then the fatal night came around. Boy, boy oh boy! ! The dancers danced on a floor, sit¬ uated between walls, upon which were various sizes and assortments of polar bears and ice cakes, Eskimos, and arctic waters, and frosted windows, while the orchestra played before the northern lights, and various people guzzled punch at the entrance of an igloo. It was a very pretty scene. It looked like a ballroom, with the boys’ and men’s formal dress, and the girls’ and women’s evening gowns swishing below knees (bellow knees—bellonee—baloney—etc.) Curses! I’d better stop that. I knew that would happen if I tried to get sentimental; I used to be a stock exchange robot. And as usual Sprinklefield Zilch has something to say. It is about the Prom: “The polar bears looked quite elite, Each was given a reserved seat. They reclined on the wall, And looked over all, And seemed to enjoy the treat.” +■ •+ Page 32 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 19 3 4 « , n — mi -- im .. - mi -. in. — — mi mi mi mi in-in ' - mi mi mi in-in — in— iiii — mi—-mi " " i . 111 — ' " I mi ' ' I " 1 -im— ' ■ mi nn m-im- 111 11,1 1111 111 - " " — " { Our famous class, after the Prom, presented the annual Junior Prize Speaking Contest. It was a hot evening and the contestants were even hotter. Our old Sprinklefield Zilch sends us a flash from behind the scenes at this affair. The speakers in the typewriting room Paced about as if waiting their doom. Then June bugs they chased And around the room they raced, To forget that out front they’d soon fume. Well now, again, our illustrious selves were becoming nauseated with being confined in¬ doors five hours in these beautiful days. The authorities heard of our discomfort. Immediate¬ ly they offered us the usual terms. However this time we were anxious to get away and not re¬ main here, when we might be commencing our inevitable journey to fame. Finally desperate, they told us that we would be the class of the greatest priviliges in the whole school, seniors, and that four and one half hours would be the length of the school day. Well, after careful consideration, we decided to again brighten the high school halls with our glory. The authori¬ ties knew that this was our last year and so they tried to make our final term at this school as enjoyable as possible. We were given the privilege of using the front door and sitting in the back seats in chapel. The school magazine was not arousing the interest in itself that it should have done. A school newspaper had long been thought of. Confident that it could be done, the new seniors formed a Netop Board and attempted it. It is now well started and seem to be suc¬ cessful. Since they had such a great class within the portals, the authorities wanted something to remember us by, in our senior year. So we planned a play. Being put on by such a class this play had to be done right. So we hired Miss Alice Teed who lived way down in Medford to coach us. However even she flatterered by the honor of coaching a group from the noble class, demanded no stipend. Elwyn Taber and Ed Olchowski didn’t speak to each other for two weeks beforehand to work up atmosphere. You’ll have to ask Mme. Hartbalm to find out whether the hero went out with the heroine, for the same reason. Well, well, to be sure. What have you to say about this event, Sprinklefield, old boy? “Well, it was quite an affair, I’ll say, And they put on a difficult play; But what I can’t see And what’s beyond me, Why did such a play run but one day?” Quite so. And now time moves irresistibly forward, and the end of our high school days draws near. Our Principal kept reminding us in chapel talks that we were nearing the end of high school, and of course, we honked and waved our handkerchiefs to show our sympathy for him, that he must lose such a fine class. Then came the Senior Farewell Social, but I haven’t said anything about the Freshmen Reception or the Senior Farewell for fear Sprinklefield might offer his comments. And, well, you’ve heard his remarks about two socials already. e now have arrived at the stage when we cannot be held back any longer. We now go into the world to fulfill our destiny, that of arriving at an unsurpassed height of fame. Howard Miller 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 33 +—. •iiii — mi—mi- .—+ Hast 1MI anti Testament of tfje Class of 1934 Be it remembered that I the class of ’34, Esquire, in the city of Turners Falls, in the state of Massachusetts, do make this my last will and testament in the manner following; That is to say:— I order and direct that all my just debts incurred in my four years’ sojourn, shall be paid with convenient speed. To Mr. Burke, I give a fleet of Army Trucks to transfer the School Battalion to its various maneu¬ vers. I think it is high time some worthy recognition was given to those priceless jokes gotten off by Mr. Lorden so to him a bound volume containing the spice of his remarks. I leave to Mr. Sheff a half-mile cinder running track encircling the athletic field for his future track stars. I give to Mr. Wrightson a trip through antique Rome including interviews with Caesar, Cicero, and Virgil. To Donald Taber I leave Howard Miller’s crew-cut. Raymond Trudel’s curling irons I pass on to Gus Milkey. To all occupants of the first floor I leave the enjoy¬ able experience of sharing desks with freshmen. In memory of that colossal winter of ’33 and ’34 I pile onto Mr. Maddern a few more of those 15 foot snow drifts to shovel through. It would never do for me to leave the High School heavily in debt to Miss Ayer for the countless depreda¬ tions on her inkwell made by chiselling seniors, so to her go a couple of gallons of fountain pen ink. I bestow upon Miss Teed a laurel wreath in honor of her untiring devotion to me, the class of ’34. For obvious reasons I leave to each member of next year’s basketball team a couple of hot water bottles for use in the dear old Hibernian. To the whole school I pass on the hope of a new building. To Miss Ayer I give a few mufflers to be placed at danger points in her classroom that tappings or drummings by anxious scholars may be silenced imme¬ diately. That Miss Shea my open the windows in study hall without distrurbing some drowsy occupant I grant her the power to do so with a sigh. To Miss McGillicuddy I leave a bound record con¬ taining all supreme court decisions to be used to settle beyond a doubt any disputes that may arise in her English classes. I leave to Miss Crowther one more batch of burnt cookies. On Miss Lindsay I bestow a lariat with which to lasso loafing sophomores who stand gaping at the bul¬ letin board long after classes have begun. To Mr. Wrightson I leave “Feed and Care in the Babies’ First Year” by Ozo Green, the well known infant specialist for use in taking care of next year’s freshmen. Because of difficulties encountered in teaching Latin to some of those not-so-bright freshmen, I leave to Miss Clark phonograph records of the conjugations and declensions with which to drive those subjects home. I leave to Mrs. O’Keefe the slim hopes that the class of’38 will have the same Einsteinian scope and ability as the class of ’34 has had. To Mr. Perkins I give a first aid kit to be used when some of those yearling carpenters come to grief. For use against the wintry blasts that storm through Room 16, after Miss Shea has started opening windows I leave to each occupant of her study a fur coat. A Hoover Vacuum Cleaner might prove useful in keeping that home room floor clear of scraps so I give one to Miss FitzGerald. Mr. Bickford has long needed a room of his own, so to him I leave a music room furnished to suit his taste. To Miss Fortune I give a rabbit’s foot. To carry her and her commercial class quietly and invisibly past Miss Ayer’s English class I pass on to Miss Packard a magic carpet. I give to Mr. Winn a chunk of good old New Eng¬ land air to breathe now and then when he is far away. I leave a new set of athletes to Miss Little to fill the places of the dear departed. To Mr. Galvin I leave some football uniforms to fit his freshman squad. In order that the business managers of the Netop may be chosen for their ability alone and not because of their possession of a car I leave to the Netop Boards of the coming years a Rolls-Royce. I hereby revoke all wills by me heretofore made and constitute the said executor of this my last will. In witness whereof I, the above named testator, have hereunto set my hand and sealed this twentieth day of June in the year of our Lord Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-four.

No ? Well I’ll tell you. Teddy Molongoski and Raymond Trudel are making money and getting full houses through their excellent vaudeville act which is faintly remin iscent of Mutt Jeff. David Sargent is falling through space. In fact, he has been for some time. He was sci¬ entist in search of a means for counteracting gravity. He evidently discovered it. AAAH ! I see a marvelous new school with marble halls and pillars. Howard Miller is enthroned in the principal’s office. Not only does he supervise but he teaches a course in how to overcome absentmindedness and how to become efficient in the art of pun-making. In the lower regions of the same edifice, by a swimming pool stands Deedum Krynzel, who tears his chest and beats his hair and emits sounds which rival Tarzan’s heretofore considered inimit¬ able call. His eyes protrude glassily, and all because he simply cannot succeed in teaching the dumb freshmen the backward doughnut roll. Frank Kuzmeski is his assistant. He isn’t help¬ ing now because he has been indisposed for several days. An asinine sophomore stepped on his face while he was demonsti ' ating the toe hold. Betty Wheeler, Phyllis Gunn, Jeannette Martineau, Evelyn Fish, Gertrude Spungin all give lessons in how not to hold your man. Elwyn Taber has just invented a wingless, motorless airplane and everyone is waiting for its trial flight. It will be made in a part of the National Forest Reserve. This reserve is under Lester Hazelton’s supervision. He breeds woodpeckers because they keep his trees in good con¬ dition. Freddy and Franny Riel are engaged in a mortal combat. They are zealously trying to de¬ feat one another in ping-pong in order that the world may know which is really the champion. Edna Wallace Hopper’s success is responsible for the fact that Emelia Plodzien, Sophie Kopec, Nellie Clark and Arlene Buckmaster have all developed into effective high-powered saleswomen. Peter Mackin and Farrell Johnson are models in Pierre’s Select Establishment in Paris. Helen Olchowski also works there. She sells perfume at $100 a dram to gullible and wealthy Americans. Edward Olchowski is going about wearing a silk blouse and flowing tie. He has just suc¬ ceeded Rubinoff and Franklin Bickford is the second Walter Winchell. When people refute his statements he falls back on his dignity. Marjorie Woodin has given up the idea of being a nun and has accepted a position as host¬ ess in Lenny Passino’s night club. 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 35 Irene Choate and Mary Ladd are in training. They are getting ready to participate in a marathon scheduled for the Olympics. Kenneth Brown is the rear-admiral on the flagship U. S. S. Dunker which is at present dry-docked in the Gill navy yard. Billy Fritz has gone in for histrionic art. He is playing the part of Pagliacci and is draw¬ ing capacity crowds to the Shea Theatre in the best clowning act since the world began. Betty Darrell has been greatly honored. She is the first feminine Speaker of the House that Congress has ever known. Janet Aitken has always been a serious person and now she has been elected senator from Ohio. Now she is endeavoring to pass an act which would provide a home for every fugitive flea circus. Charlotte Dykes’ advice is followed by more people in America than any other person’s. She writes a Dorothy Dix column in the Chimerical News edited by John Earley in the town of Topolobampo. July Ilajduk and Marjorie Hall are doing all they can to make interior decorating a sci¬ ence rather than an art. Josephine Waraksa and Evelyn Roe have become successful writers of fairy tales and they get many of their ideas by listening to excuses brought in by Howard’s pupils. Margaret Smith is a librarian. She has two assistants, namely Albertine Girard and Alice Beaubien. The library was founded by Stella Fisette and Rita Shea. Peter Koscinski is experimenting on his chicken farm to obtain a three-yoked egg. John Kosewicz is helping him. James Pf ersick, Mike Variest, and Bernard Cadran are all big league coaches. Aubrey Legendre and Edward Dubreuil have both gone in for eccentric dancing and can be seen daily at the Ritz. Casimir So ka, Roland Bourdeau, Stanley Potosek, and Charles Cock¬ ing have all become orators of world reknown. Grace Hoynoski, Mary Piecuch, and Marceline Lapean all work together. Grace designs clothes, Marceline shows you how to acquire long eye-lashes and Mary shows how to cultivate dimples. Ceslawa Kostrzewska and Blanche Swinko teach youngsters how to be able to talk with¬ out being timid about it and how to refrain from looking embarrassed. Sally Pierce and Victoria Sopollec are teachers of physical ed. and teach at Mount Hol- oke. Loretta Cousino and Elaine Mathieu are dietitians. Wallace Janek lectures to various mas¬ culine clubs. All he has to do is tell about a fish he once caught. Madeline Lonergan is a very popular chorine and Marie Goss is a registered nurse. - ■+ Is this not a record to be proud of?

Undoubtedly it will be both. Our high school days will probably stand out in our memories for a long time. Sometime when we’re looking back we will smile as we think of the fast ones Mr. Lorden used to pull in class, or the time that Harry went to bat with a broom and won his letter for striking out. Or how can we help but feel a pleasant sensation as we think of all the work and thought we put in on the Prom, on the pleasant anxiety before the Senior Play and Prize Speaking and the feeling of a job well done when the last curtain came down. Pm willing to wager that none of us would trade that day of furious pinning, tacking, cut¬ ting, and the pounded fingers before the Prom, for anything else in the world, even though we were so tired, that fifteen dances seemed like a million when the big night finally arrived. But the thrill that nothing can surpass comes with the memory of the supreme moment when a Turners man carried the pigskin over Greenfield’s goal line three times and the wild frenzy of the Turners’ stands, the feel of the splintering goal posts, and the crazy snake dance through the town afterward. There’s a scene to stick in your mental scrap book, which will always whisk you back to 1933 and T. F. H. S. We’ll always be moved to say “What a game,’’ when we look back to the tournament game at M. S. C. with Williamstown, as we watched the timer hold the gun aloft, watching the seconds tick past, almost praying that the ball would keep away from our basket until the overtime period was over. “We’re ahead. One point. Hold that ball. Oh! there goes the game! No! Watch him. Watch him. What a game!” And when we’re musing over the amenities of life, won’t those band and orchestra rehearsals be among them, with Mr. Bickford’s chiding of the fiddles or his smiling banter if we were playing to suit him. What athlete can forget the smells and sounds of the dressing room before a game, with its last minute instructions and assurances; and what fan will forget the feeling of pride as the team came onto the floor as the band marched trium¬ phantly down the field. Don’t you remember how we said “It’s work,” and “It’s hot,” but how we snapped in obedi¬ ence to the commands as a “Platoons right by squads—” made a soldier of every one of us? Who that was on the Netop board will forget that feeling of importance, when he saw his name in the masthead of the first issue of the new school paper, or the discussions of real news¬ paper problems at Press Club meetings? Oh yes, we grumbled at times, “we have too much homework,” and “that’s an unreason¬ able assignment” and maybe it was, but those few unpleasant moments are out balanced by the pleasant ones. Or maybe we said that we were being treated like a bunch of children, or that certain school policies and customs were foolish, but now as we look back we can see that we profited rather than lost by the strict discipline, and by learning that there are certain things in every institution which will always be taboo or required, and that we must become accus¬ tomed to regard them with respect. We each will have our own personal pleasant memories too, like the feel of a warm breeze in study, or being squeezed into half a seat in chapel, or the solution of a problem in math, and the smell of chlorine in the lab. There’s something we’ll keep tucked away in the corner of our memories to make us smile when we think of our high school days at Turners.

Value: (1) To offer facilities for (acquiring valuable knowledge of business and the requirements of the profession. (2) To develop ability in the stenographic art. (4) To enable members to mingle freely and to enjoy the social hours together and to make new friends. (3) Through its meetings and discussions to acquire valuable general information. Meetings are held once a month, and at each meeting ten members are appointed to conduct the proceedings of the next meeting. They are divided into committees. The program committee, as the name implies, has charge of building a program. The publicity committee has charge of notifying members of the meetings and publishing notices. The membership committee stimulates interest in the club by personal con¬ tact and persuasion, and brings in new members. Instead of having officers, each member is given a chance to con¬ duct a meeting. Honorary members are Bernice Grogan, Mary McCarthy, Isabelle Piasecki, Lillian Mosseau, P. G.’s; Josephine Waraksa, senior; and Nellie Wozniak and Ruth Rau, juniors. During the year the club has had two hikes, a Hallowe’en party, presented a three-act play, “The Trailer of Errors,” to its members, attended superior court, studied court procedure, studied business dress, visited the court house, had a treasure hunt, and will end the year with a swimming party. Enthusiasm was the power that set the Commercial Club in motion, and we all hope it will ever be the vital force. •J«»—mi—mi ■ M i M ■ ' i 1 • mi ■Mil Page 44 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 19 3 4 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 45 ■ — III! — Mil — Mil — Mil —. •mi—ini—mi—-Mil—mi—mi—mi-mi —mi- •mi—mi—mi—mi—mi—mi—mi—mi mi (Hhcljesitia ani) lee Club — ORCHESTRA — The orchestra, under Mr. Bickford’s skilled guidance, has become a thriving organization in the school. The combined orchestra and glee club concert is considered one of the outstanding events of the year along with Senior Play, Prize Speaking, and the Junior Prom. Besides giving such a fine performance at the annual glee club and orchestra concert, the orchestra has furnished music for all of the assembly programs as well as Senior Play and Prize Speaking and a meeting of the Montague Parent-Teacher Association. Having planned to hold the concert in the high school auditorium, Mr. Bickford groomed the orchestra in a lighter, more delicate type of piece. This type of playing has taxed the skill of the musicians to the utmost. Knowing that the students enjoy lively music, Mr. Bickford had them work on Rudolf Friml’s rollicking “Vagabond King.” This year, owing to the two-session plan now in use, the freshmen have formed an orchestra of their own and they have furnished music for their assemblies. They combined with the upper-class men when¬ ever the orchestra made a public appearance. — GLEE CLUB — One of the major surprises of the year were the selections ren¬ dered by the Boys’ Glee Club at the annual Music Clubs concert. This club, under the guidance of Mr. Bickford, has shown remarkable im¬ provement over the work of former years. There are about thirty boys in the club, most of them freshmen, thereby assuring the students of many pleasant entertainments in the future. These boys have worked hard to attain the plaudits of the audiences before whom they have performed. It was not easy work but the boys did not shirk at the sight of the hard work ahead and have followed the guiding hand of their talented leader. This concert was not the only successful performance presented by these boys for they have appeared before the student body several times and have made a big hit each time. At the recent banquet given to the Rotary Club in the High School Auditorium, these boys again performed in a creditable manner and won the approval of the Rotarians. We wish the boys more success in the future and can see nothing but this with their fine leader, Mr. Charles Bickford. • TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 19 3 4 Page 46 iftii- " H-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi- ■ mi—mi — ini- —mi —nil —mi — mi ■ ini ' •ini ' ■Mil—Mil Mil—M ®nnters iljalls ut (brccuftelfr 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 47 Mil —mi ——MM—llll—— Nil—— llll — Mil— -IHI— »l|l|—— llll — WI —1111 — Mil — III,— — Mil—— Mil—— HH— - Mil—— 111!—— IHI— — llll—— llll—llll —llll—-llll—-llll — IIH—-1111— — llll—— HII— — IHI— —llll -M — " f ®lj t JBanb We love a parade!—Especially when the high school band is on parade. This unit has been in existence for only three years. We be¬ lieve that we can justly say that it has improved in leaps and bounds until it is now finding a place for itself among other high school units in the vicinity. The band is becoming a very cosmopolitan group, as widely trav¬ eled as any group in the school. This past year they have been unusual¬ ly busy. They started their programs by journeying to Springfield to compete at the Eastern States Exposition. Their next public appearance was in the N. R. A. parade held in Greenfield. During the course of the year they have also given concerts in the Shea Theater, at the Massa¬ chusetts State Basketball Tourney on the final night, at the Veterans’ Hospital in Leeds, at the Orange High School and at Hampton Beach, N. H. in connection with the New England Musical Festival held there. Besides all of this work the band has appeared at many of the football and basketball games. This organization also furnished music for the field days held by the Montague schools and for the high school military unit. All of these achievements have meant a great amount of hard work for Mr. Bickford and the students. Selections must be practiced hard and faithfully before they can be presented to the public. Just how much work had to be done, can be realized only, if one stops to think how much the repertoire of the band has been enlargened. The band is highly esteemed by the high school students.

In 1916 the headmasters of Western Massachusetts established an honor society for pupils of their schools along lines suggested by the Phi Beta Society of colleges. Their experience with the society was such that they have continued the plan and invited all class “A” schools of the state to establish chapters of the society. The object of the society is the encouragement of superior scholastic achievement. It was thought that good scholarship should receive recognition something like that given unusual athletic ability. Any class “A” high school in the state of Massachusetts which has a four-year curriculum can establish a chapter of this society by sending a written,notice to the secretary. The em¬ blem of the Pro Merito Society is a copyright pin which is available in fourteen and ten karat gold. Members of the society are selected by the headmaster of each school from the students in the senior class. The first selection ’s made any time after the completion of the junior year and includes all students of good character who have finished three-fourths of the work re¬ quired for graduation with an average of at least 85% in all wor k recorded. A second selection is made any time during the last semester and includes those stu¬ dents who were not eligible before but who have improved their scholarship until their work averages 85 %. The Pro Merito Society holds several meetings during the year and each different group sends delegates to the sectional meetings. Every chapter keeps a permanent list of all its mem¬ bers and sends to the secretary the names of those selected each year. 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 49 ipijilatelic Club Lower row, reading from left to right:—David Sargent, Elwyn Taber, Jr., Howard Miller.

The following officers were chosen, Elwyn Taber, Jr., President: Howard Miller, Vice-President; David Sargent, Secretary. The chief topic of discussion at our meetings, which were under the leadership of Mr. Lorden, was pre-cancelled stamps. The purpose of the club is to get together and learn about stamps and to exchange them with fellow members. An¬ other year’s added interest in this hobby we hope will attract more Philatelists to us, thus making this club larger and more active.

Forbes Bryce was elected president; Clarence Welcome, vice president; Elizabeth Darrell, secretary; and George Fisette, treasurer. The club has devoted a large part of its time to organization so that it may become a bigger success in future years. As a great many boys were interested in aeronautics, the boys most skilled in the con¬ struction of small models constructed a huge plane with an eight foot wing. This model is a piece of art. Many meetings were held throughout the year at which entertain¬ ment was provided by various members. In the earlier part of the school year, the Science Club successfully conducted a much enjoyed social at which the decorations were most original. Cut from newspa¬ pers we recognized our friends, Mickey Mouse, The Black Cat and others, famed in song and story adorning the walls and the chandeliers. 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 51 -—. ■mi ■» " — — SENIOR PLAY CAST — Reading from left to right: Leonard Passino, Frank Kuzmeski, Lester Hazelton, Janet Aitken, Edward Olchowski, Evelyn Roe, Elwyn Taber, John Dejnak, and Bernard Cadran. “JSmt Pp 1 ’ Lights!—Curtain Up!—And on the wings of drama we are carried to the interior of a mountain cabin in South Carolina, Leonard Passino as Pop Todd clumps in, Janet Aitken as Widow Cagle says the lines which have become a local catch phrase, “Pull ye up a char” and the senior cast of Lula Vollmer’s “Sun-Up” is off to a flying start. The theme is that of the mountain people’s hatred of the law and its representatives and their peculiar code of feuds. Rufe Cagle, played by Elwyn Taber Jr. and the Sheriff, Edward Olchowski are rivals for Emmy Todd’s favor. Evelyn Roe as Emmy finally marries Rufe just before he is drafted for serv¬ ice in the World War. He goes in spite of his mother’s protests that the National government is his enemy whom he ought to fight, rather than defend. While Rufe is away, Widow Cagle harbors a “Stranger” Frank Kuzmeski, who is a deserter and she defies the Sheriff, who thinks it is Rufe, to take him away. The Sheriff fearing the Widow’s quick trigger finger retires to await developements, which come rapidly when Widow Cagle finds that the Stranger is the son of the revenue officer who shot her husband. She is about to deal with him as is the custom in the mountains, when she hears the voice of her son, who has been killed in action, saying that as long as there is hate there will be feuds, and that feuds are futile. After the Stranger has promised to go back to the army, she helps him to escape the Sheriff, by having him wear the clothes of Bud, ablely played by Bernard Cadran. And then as the sun rises, the Widow steps to the door and says “It was sundown when you left me, but its sun-up now and 1 know God’s taking care of you, Rufe.” Judging by the applause the audience certainly appreciated the ex¬ pert performance of these senior actors, so ablely directed by Miss Teed. Lester Hazelton, as the preacher who always carried a bottle “in case of sickness” married the hero and heroine with a very authentic touch, and John Dejnak said his thirteen words, as if the number weren’t a bit unlucky. And P. S.,—the dog nearly stole the show so they had to keep him off the stage after the first act.

To be a member of this club a boy had to win a letter T in some sport. Every year since the club was founded the members have met and have elected officers. The officers are usually seniors because they have won the most letters in sports. The officers of this year’s T-Club are Chester Skrzypek, president; Kenneth Brown, vice-president and Fred¬ erick Riel, secretary. The club has drawn up a constitution which stat¬ ed what must be done to win a letter. The T-Club is a very fine club and any boy who belongs ought to feel proud, because to belong to the club he had to show that he was good enough to win a letter. The num¬ ber of members is steadily increasing until this year it is one of the largest organizations at the school. 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 53 U—,,«— +■ — FRESHMAN LATIN CLUB — Lower row, reading from left to right:—Doroth Winch, Norma Grogan, Fred Sullivan, Rosalie Beaubien, Philip Morgan, Sally Dykes, Frank Bush, Mary Quinn, Helen Long.

It was an excellent affair and a fitting way to end a fine season. Mr. Burke was toastmaster and he saw to it that every one had a good time. Papers which contained several songs were passed out and the boys exercised their vocal chords (the neighbors must have thought the end of the world had come.) There was speech making by the members of the faculty, Mr. Keating, and the senior members of the football squad. Many of the boys had tears in their eyes when they finished. Miss Crowther and her girls did the decorating as well as the cook¬ ing and saw to it that none of the boys left the Auditorium hungry. Mr. Bickford and a selected group of musicians kindly rendered the musical selections for the evening. Letters were awarded to the following boys at the conclusion of the banquet: Chester Skrzypek, Captain; Casimir Sojka, Manager; Walter Bakula, Kenneth Brown, Louis Christian, John Dejnak, Henry Dranzek, Albert Fish, Edmund Kawecki, Adam Krynzel, Frank Kuz- meski, Bernard McCarthy, Gustave Milkey, Edward Naida, Anthony Novak, Freeland Perkins, Harold Pervere, James Pfersick, Stanley Potosek, Francis Riel, Frederick Riel, William Sears and Gerald Trudel. Pervere and McCarthy were also elected as co-captains of next year’s squad at this banquet. Mr. Burke almost found it necessary to call out his military unit to drive the boys away from the tables and see that they went home and did their home work. 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 57 ■ • nii — mi—mi—mi— mi — mi— mi — mi—mi—mi—nil— nn — ini — mi — mi —nii — ini — mi—nil — mi — mi—ini — mi—nn — mi — mi — nii — mi—iin — mi—till— mi — nil — mi — mi— nii — mi- Athletic Section •HU— nii —iin- Hli —mi—nil—nil—nil—nil —Mil—iin —-nil—nil—nn« —Ml—llli —ini ' ■ nil .ini—mi—mi ' •Mil—mi—liil •nil—iin — iin — mi—mi—nil—n»| I TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 19 3 4 Page 58 -ini —mi —mi — —iiii — mi—mi — -nil—nil — mi—— — 1933 FOOTBALL SQUAD — Lower Row—Reading from Left to Right:—Principal Burke, Dejnak, Pfersick, Fran Riel, McCarthy, Krynzel, Capt.

The 1933 football squad started slowly but gathered enough momentum as they went along to crown with success one of the best seasons ever enjoyed by a Turners Falls High School eleven by defeating Greenfield 12-0. Hampered by numerous injuries the team never gave up fighting once and finished the season with a record of six victories, two scoreless ties and one defeat. It was a great team and reflected glory upon Mr. Lorden. Under their fighting captain, Chet Skrzypek, the Indians literally swept through a sched¬ ule which included nine of the strongest teams in this section, in fact the stronger they were the better the team liked it. The team showed its best form in the Agawam game when it won by a score of 25-0 with the first team playing less than half the contest. The Indians also looked good against Pittsfield, one of the best teams in the Berkshires, winning by a score of 10-0. The Greenfield game at¬ tracted a throng of over 10,000 fans. The Indians lost their only game of the season to Holyoke High by a score of 7-6. Several of the local regulars were out of this game because of injuries. Adam Krynzel and Bernard McCarthy were selected on the All-Western Massachusetts Scholastic Team as fullback and center respectively. Harold Pervere and McCarthy were se¬ lected as co-captains of next year’s squad.

Starting the season with three veterans from last season’s championship five the Indians had the foundation of what appeared to be a great team but the team never reached its top form. They did however win 13 games and lost but six. The quintet played in flashes, at times displaying a form that made them appear unbeat¬ able and then they’d play as if they couldn’t beat anyone their next game. The Indians were eliminated in their first game at the M. S. C. Small High School Tourney by Smith Academy, 23-21. It was a tremendous upset and still has the fans guessing. There was some consolation gained however as the team defeated their great rivals, Greenfield, two straight games by scores of 41-25 and 29-22. Some of the largest crowds ever to witness basketball in this town stormed Hibernian Hall several times and had to be turned away. The hall was filled to capacity every home game.

The Turners Falls Indians dropped their first three games of the year and seemed headed for a disastrous campaign but recently they have found their batting eyes and have gone on the warpath scalping opponents left and right. There were many veterans on this year’s team but for some reason they did not seem to click as a unit. Injuries handicapped the Indians at the beginning of the year but they have at last begun to play the ball they are capable of. Adam Krynzel was elected captain by the lettermen and has proved himself to be a good leader. The team won the annual Memorial Day game with Greenfield by a score of 9-3. There were many other well played games, including the Adams game which the Indians won by a score of 10-2 and the Orange game which the locals also won 10-2. There are many boys who are playing their last games for Turners on this baseball team.

I’m in the hole now.” Mr. Grouch had some new neighbors, and his wife was very much interested in them. In a few days she reported: “They seem a most devoted couple. He kisses her everytime he goes out and even waves kiss¬ es to her from the sidewalk. Why don’t you do that?” “Why don’t I? Good heavens! I don’t even know her yet!” NIGHTIE, NIGHTIE! “Shut your eyes, Willie, and mother will tell you a story to put you to sleep.” “Why will it put me to sleep, mommy?” “Because it—oh, it’s that kind of a story. . . . Once there was a king who had three sons, and one day-” “Why did he have three sons, mommy?” “Because—well, because they weren’t daugh¬ ters. ... So the king-” “You don’t have three sons, do you, mommy?” “No. I only have one, but sometimes he gets me as hot and bothered as three. ... So the king one day balled his three sons and told them about a fero¬ cious dragon that was-” “What’s a dragon, mommy?” “Oh, it’s sort of—well, it’s like an animal, only it isn’t an animjal exactly. It has fire coming out of its nose, and it looks like a great big alligator, only it isn’t really an alligator, because it’s a dragon.” “What’s an alligator, mommy?” “Well, it’s sort of animal with scales. It Wallow ' s around in rivers and bites you if you get too close.” “Why does it bite you, mommy?” “Oh, because it—it just bites. Hungry, I guess. Or maybe it doesn’t like you.” “Don’t you know, mommy?” “If you want to hear this story, keep still, or I won’t tell it. . . . So the dragon ate up all the beautiful young girls it could find, and the king asked his three sons to go out and kill the bad dragon.” “Why was it bad?” “Because it ate up jail the beautiful young girls.” “Why were they beautiful, mommy?” “Because they grew like that. It’s something that just comes to you or it doesn’t. “You’re not beautiful, are you, mommy?” “I’ve had my moments, Willie. This isn’t one of them though. So the oldest son tried to kill the dragon and the next son tried, but both failed. And then the youngest jand fairest of them all set out with his faithful sword-” “What’s a faithful sword, mommy?” “Oh, it’s a sword that’s faithful. You know, just one that always works.” “Why does it always work, mommy?” “Wfyat am I doing, Willie?” “You are pulling your hair, mommy.” “Why am I pulling my hair, Willie?” “Because you are mad as everything.” “Why am I mad as everything, Willie?” “Because I ask questions.” “Why does it make me mad as everything when you ask questions, Willie?” “Because you don’t know the answers mommy.” “Why are you lying on the floor, mommy? Did the story put YOU to sleep?” —Aleen Wetstein Two boys and a large, shapeless, wagging dog stood idlely in the sunny square of a Middle Western town. A passerby heard this conversation: “How’d you like my police dog?” “0 yeah? That’s no police dog.” “0 yes it is. You see he’s disguised; he belongs to the secret service.” S K ' I 4 Two men who had been bachelor cronies met for the first time in five years. “Tell me, Tom,” said one, “did you marry that girl, or do you still darn your own socks and do your cooking?” “Yes,” was Tom’s reply. A student in an Indiana college town was inquiring at a boarding house: “What do you charge a week for a room, here?” “Five dollars up.” “Yes, but I’m a student,” the seeker replied, think- the price was a little bit high. “Oh, in that case, it will be Five Dollars Down.” Tom: (in a Latin exam): “What’s the word for increase?” Dick: Darned if I know.” So Tom diligently wrote the principal parts. Darn- ifino, darnifinare, darnifinavi, darnifinatus. She: “Would some of you boys mow the grass off our tennis courts?” One of the boys: “Sure any time. Just sheer fun, the mower the merrier.” “What is the test of a good code of morals?” “Whether people can follow it or not.” “If it’s a good code people can’t follow it anyway.” 19 3 4 TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Page 65 J e JeJtim " Jj rrxl - Jr f J r Ji fi ' Y.)
