But four short years — a moment lost in Time; Yet not a single petal of loveliness From all the flowers of that brief interval Shall fade or lose its first fresh rainbow tint; And not one pledge of friendship — not one word Can Time with all its power obliterate.

We might add that these decisions were finally arrived at through very deliberate consideration. To George Villeneuve we leave Eddie Waryas ' s and John Muszynski’s new invention called the " Safety Perpetual Dusting Machine” which catches oust in mid-air. To Edwin Czuj and Erwin Williard Ariel and Richard Bailee- magazine “Click.” Doris Traversari leaves her famous giggle to anyone who can imitate it correctly. To Marion Bean and Jean Smith, Patricia Grogan leaves her letter- writing ability but with strict orders to them that neither addresses her epistles to the same college. Francis Reen leaves the Jazz Band his latest song hit which is called “Moonlight in Millers.” To Theodore Martin and Charles LaFrance we leave Rolland Berthi- aume’s many copies of the “Police Gazette” so that they too may prepare to become policemen of Turners Falls. To Paul Whiteman, Edward LaPean, and Francis Casey w T e leave ten pounds of dates donated by Robert Kiley so that they too may develop into gay Lochinvars.

So that they may become expert typists, Patricia Powers and Margaret Hanley leave to Sophie Kulch and Peggy Ivelleher their book entitled “Hit or Miss — Please Don’t Miss All the Time.” We give and bequeath to Mr. Sheff a box of Francis Fowler’s “pep biscuits” for his track stars, Charles Milkey, Rolland Brunelle, and Russell Luippold we leave the cameras used by so they may take snap-shots for the new Page Forty-one THE OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OP TURNERS FALLS lit 11 Breault, but if this doesn’t benefit them, he can give the biscuits to his new dog, Turk.

James Mosseau, Robert Nagle, and Alfred Denkowicz leave membership in the Millers Falls Sewing Circle to George O’Riley, Charlie Zayac. and Edward Kaipec. To all little Freshmen, we leave Roger Welch’s manliness. Heaven knows they need it ! June Casey has invented a machine which not only takes off your shoes and empties them — but also puts them back back on when you get to the top of the sand bank. This is bequeathed to these students in the following ratio — 90 per cent goes to Lenore Shanahan and 10 per cent to the Indians! So that Bobby Lemaire will always have something to amuse himself, we leave him a large box of tacks with this warning: these tacks are to be used only for tacking up papers with 100 per cent on the walls of his room. To the school in general, we leave a cooperative accident policy since so many reckless juniors have been getting their licenses.

On the summits of this mountain, are the palaces olf the gods. It is there that we sent a special envoy to receive the decrees of the Fates, for it is the Fates that weave the thread of life and prophesy the future. Lachesis, twisted the wool on the spindle of life and foretold the follow- ing future for the members of the great Class of 1941 : “You have your Helens, Apollos, Dianas, Hercules, and your Vulcans, who like the gods of old, will play a great part in the history of the world. Your world will be one of progress, wisdom and prosperity and each member of the graduating class will help make it such. Come ahead with me ten years. It is 1951 and class reunion day at T. F. H. S. The alumni are just arriving. Coming up the walk are the two world famous comedians, Lambert and Nagle, who have cancelled a world tour in order to be here. Directly behind them are the debutantes, Shirley Schneider and Anna Marie Sullivan who are escorted by Francis Hickey, now a professor of history at Harvard. In another group coming across the town are Captain Edward Waryas and Lieutenant Bailey of the United States Army, Martha Smith, an opera star of the Metropolitan, Paul Stenard, international news commentator, Lieutenant-Governor Thomas Reynolds with Admiral Richardson and Private Dorhamer from the US’S Wasp.

As the alumni proceed through the receiving line, more guests come in, among these are Ambassador Bankwitz, his secretary, Walter Dobosz, and his valet, Robert Cleveland, who follows him wherever he goes, and sees that Phil’s waves are never out of place. Behind him is foreign correspond- ent, Warren Philip Gingras, and three other ace reporters for the “Gill Times,” Robert Breslin, Russell Breault, and Raymond Bellemore. Gloria Regali, the new sensation on Broadway, makes a grand entrance with Susan Alvord and Patricia Grogan, both secretaries for the prosperous “Casey and Conway Exclusive Shops for Women.” June tells us that Eileen I’agt Forty-five THE OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS FALLS li 41 cannot come as she is touring Europe with Bernice Staiger, who recently married a millionaire.

Upon the arrival of Eileen Ouellette and Amelia Pogoda, both Red Cross nurses, Sara gives a terrifying scream, which brings Doctors Walichowski nad Walechowski rushing in. Eddie and Frannie are now famous surgeons and deal exclusive- ly with the “crazy bone.” Behind them are their six assistant nurses, Mildred Cahill, Evelyn Beaubien. Anna Dobosz, Henrietta Golec, Evelyn Martin, Victoria Krol, and Ruth Howe. As the dancing begins, and the alumni pick their partners, Sojka and Garbiel. the world famous bubble dancers, enter and go into their dance. Ernestine Pryor, T.

The judges have just declared a tie in the award of first prize, between Genevieve Kania and Olive Leonard. Helen Sumner and Hazel Ripley are to decide the result, as both are authorities on beauty. Jessie Sopollec is finally declared “Miss Turners Falls.” The alumni are asked to go to the cafeteria where Glenyth Ward and Lillian St. Germain are serving one of their famous buffet suppers.

But Little by little though ashamed of ignorance We grew to follow just as surely our devious ways As all who were above us. We began In hand with kind and thoughtful teachers, laboriously To learn the Olympian life. Yet all were good And soon our quaking hearts were assuaged with kindness On kindness. A dance — an introduction, so painlful yet So necessary, to the social world. Time Passed so quickly and suddenly to test Our merit — mid-year examinations. Spring now With bursting blooms and renewed hopes. Swiftly Year’s end rushed to meet us, and Together with measured tread out the open door we went To holiday and respite. Sophomores! — A springing step, an air of savoir-faire A smile that made all know our w’orth. Careless days Of light and laughter, of intoxication and boundless confidence. And now to laugh at those poor creatures — Freshmen who so awkwardly took possession of our Late inheritance. We could not think that we had been like that! So happy we were with fond hopes, Imagined that all who looked upon us Loved us. And yet the while, forces moved To make us mature in fact as well as in name. Under Our guide of wisdom, Miss Parsons, came Election. A ruler of our choice — Paul Stenard — as fair In mind as in body — to govern our expanding kingdom. A regent — Alex Osowski to support the noble lord. Anna Marie Sullivan, with Athenian wisdom Our state affairs to head.

Then, at our first Class dance we received all Who late had smiled indulgently at our ingenuosness. Winter Relaxed his stern face into spring and through A whirl of examinations in hot June days we saw Out through the portals pass Another senior class. Full forty members we had lost when September with its falling leaves called us Back agan. A new Athena stood to welcome us In place of her who had gone. Into Miss Clark’s hands Went the sceptre and the scales to rule And to balance our course df life. We took With greater dignity and somewhat less aplomb Our place. Full conscious of our forthcoming inheritance To work we applied ourselves diligently. With Socratic wisdom We chose to lead us in our onward march the same Peerless five who had so nobly served their purpose In our past year of naivete. Came March, and its fierce winds Began to turn our chariot wheels on the road to fame. Trembling Stricken by the god of Fear, seventy of our illustrious class Gathered their merit to compare in Demosthenic combat. Eight — Gloria Regali, Kathleen Dolan, Marion Vlach, Sarah Lipinski, Paul Stenard, Warren Gingras, Philip Bankwitz, and Francis Hickey — Were victorious, and two months hence were To compete in Junior Prize Speaking, beloved and venerable Institution. And with the advent of spring came Yet another task. Through music, art, design, and all The social graces we strove to make our Prom A creation of perfection. And when At last that starry night arrived and the long lines Of dancers gasped at the riotous splendour before their eyes We were proud. And all the labour seemed as nothing In the dazzling light of our success. One week passed And eight in strained and tensed silence awaited Their turn before the immense crowd which filled The auditorium. One by one to their battle they advanced And emerged triumphant over fear. T o Page Forty-eiglit E OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS FALLS 104 A hushed, expectant throng - , the winners three were announced. Forceful Tragic, beautiful in its sadness, Kathleen Dolan’s “When the Whirlwind Blows,’’ won first prize. To mirth and effervesence went the second — “X Marks the Spot, " given by Paul Stenard. And “I Am A Jew. " intense Heroic, gripping — by Philip Bankwitz — won the third. And all agreed That upon the altar of the goddess of the spoken word Had been laid that night, not three, but eight great and beautiful Sacrifices. Flushed with the Bacchic wine of fame and success, on We went to June’s close. With shining eyes From honoured seniors’ hands we received The key to authority for the coming year. Three years of authority had had its fruition in this — Our coming of age. Heads held high Honour and respect now rightly due us Forth we went to vacation ' s rest. Annus Mirabilis ! The dawn of promise ablaze With the thousand crimson flames of unbounded hope. In new respect we were, hallowed, on a Pedestal above the rank and file. To enjoy this, which After we had sought for so long, and now attained! With Calm and condescending mien viewed we the life beneath us. Pale Freshmen, sophomores in the arrogant flush of youth, juniors From their cockle-shell of hesitancy and doubt at last emerging. We Smiled — so slightly — remembering what we had been. But now to grace Our illustrious class — a new head — far-famed captain, of our football Team — Edward Corbiere. The rest All four — to tasks official were returned.

And We remembered that night three years before when we So painfully, yet so gracefully, had made our debut In the social world. Fall sped by, and premature winter On the day of Thanks ruined our chance for Olympic victory O’er the vertigo hosts across the river. The muse Of drama sounded her trumpet call for the senior play.

With Excellence in every field, our class had reason to boast. On Football field Grogan and Waryas kept the honour Of their class brightly shining. On marathonic track Ran Fowler and Breault to victory. Collins in basketball And on the diamond, Bellemore, kept fame our own. With Racquet and with chess board was Warren Gingras Among the best. And with her baton and fingers nimble Twirled Sara Lipinski to fame and glory. When On a winter-weary world Spring burst All at once, together came the chosen scribes For posterity to record the marvels of The Olympian class. Inspired by the captain Of our literary ship of state — Miss Welcome Ayer — full well And long they toiled and brought at length forth Before the world ' s astonished eyes, a work Truly blent, and tempered with A genius touch — the Olympian. And all The while to make our Class Day a fitting farewell To those we loved worked still Another group. Our final dance, our commencement Each added glory to our name. And now as draw we near to the end — Now, with the rush of fond, sweet memories crowding In, we pause to glance behind. Our years Of plenty, growth and happiness, work, joy And friendship sterling.

For everything Which we have gained from these our high-school days Thanks cannot alone suffice.

TIIK OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF I I HAKHS FALLS lilt I " TWELFTH NIGHT” When we seniors found that our play was to be the Shakesperean • comedy “Twelfth Night” we were both delighted and dubious. Almost the entire class turned out for try-outs and as usual the judges had a difficult time selecting the large cast. It consisted of Gloria Regali, Martha Smith, Mary Flaro, Paul Stenard, Tames Mosseau, Edmund Cadran, Frank Sivik, Edward Walichowski, Robert Kiley, Francis Flickey, Philip Bankwitz, Mary Dresser. Richard Bailey, Arthur Peno, Robert Richardson, Roger Welch, Thomas Reynolds, Evelyn Beaubien, Eileen Conway, Shirley Schneider, Anna Marie Sullivan, George Koch, and Francis Reen. After the thrill and excitement of the first few rehearsals we settled down to the tedious drilling - . Then we really appreciated Miss Teed’s direction, patience and sense of humor and the light dinners brought by the cast members. There are so many things about rehearsals — Phil Bankwitz’s birthday party ; learning how to curtsy and bow ; the duels with broom- handles ; Mary Flaro’s chatter ; everybody ' s old jokes, including Shorty Richardson’s exploding book ; Mary Dresser’s bruises ; budding friendships ; groups trying to do homework ; learning lines ; playing cards or reading funny books; Martha Smith ' s and Gloria Regali ' s backstag ' e emoting; Whitey Stenard reciting love speeches to Kid Kiley who answers coyly ; Miss Teed giving lessons to Eddie Walichowski on tiptoeing and giggling; Pete Mos ' seau’s rhythms and Phi Bankwitz’s “Melody in F,” as much as he knew — all added to pleasant memories. Then the last dress rehearsal when lords and ladies paraded about tripping over swords and trains. And the supper! Mrs. Tabor certainly outdid herself and gained the gratitude of that famished cast. By opening night the cast was keyed to such a tension that we laughed and paced the floor or wandered about vaguely. No one thought of going downstairs during the show. We snickered up our sleeves at jokes we had heard for two months and jumped on the actors as they left the stage. “Malvolio” Bankwitz came off the stage, grabbed hold of Miss Teed and announced, “I like it !” Then it was over and when the curtain fell we all cheered everyone else and hopped about removing make-up. Everyone was glad the first night was over but many said they wouldn ' t mind doing it again. We all missed rehearsals, and felt lost afternoons. This senior play was certainly a memorable one. Not only did the class of ' 41 do Shakespeare but they did it beautifully. The credit rests wholely on our dramatic director, Miss Alice Teed, who taught and inspired the entire cast and her assistants. “Twelfth Night” will long be a pleasant schoolday memory.

In the center of the room, a flickering candle throws off wierd threatening shadows into all corners of the room. Seated at a box is Mugsy, a short but power- ful ly built man. He is muttering to himself. Mugsy: Cripes it’s dark in here! Damn it! I wish Bill would hurry. I told him to meet me here at mid- night. This stinking old warehouse ain’t no place to hang out. No one will get wind of us here though. After we pull this job we’ll be sitting pretty. I don’t know whether I should have let Bill in on it. He might cross me. God help his hide if he does! Well, he knows the plans now. He can’t back out. What was that? Who— who’s there? That you Bill? Oh, it’s only a rat. Damn this place Where in the devil is Bill?

Where are the guards? Bill: Wait a, minute. Take it easy. Mugsy, I don’t think we better try this. It’ll mean a long stretch if we’re caught. The cops patrol that beat all day. We might have to shoot it out. I’m scared, Mugsy. It ain’t a sure thing. Mugsy: Listen you yellow livered pig! Let me worry about the shooting part of it. You handle the other end see. Where’s the bank guard? Bill: They got little cubby holes in the ceiling. There’s two of them. They ' re snipers. They’d get ou before you could spot them. You wouldn’t have a chance.

Bill: It would be better if we both forgot about it. It can’t be done. You ought to cut all this crooked stuff. It would be a cinch for you to get a good job. You ' re a good electrician. Crooks like us ain’t no good. We ain ' t got no self-respect. We’re cowards! Killing! Robbings! It ain’t no good Mugsy. It aint! It ain’t! It ain’t! Mugsy: I told you to shut up didn’t I? Now shut up and listen! I don’t want any of your damned preaching see. I always knew you didn’t have what it takes. Well, you can back out if you want, but I’m going through with it. But if you dare open your trap Bill, it’ll be just too bad! Get me! Bill: Sure Mugsy, 1 know. I know. Well ... I tried. So long Mugsy. So long. Mugsy: (As Bill leaves, Mugsy lights a cigarette, throws the match down angrily and starts muttering again.) I guess I’m big enough to pull this job alone. I’m no coward. I don’t need his help. Good riddance! I won’t have to split with him now. I’ll live in style while that sucker will still be playing for pennies. Well, no use hanging around this dump anymore. I’ll look over the bank once more and be all set for to- morrow. Hm . . . hm . . . hm. “Tomorrow is my big day. I’ll get at least a hundred grand, Right from the teller’s hand, And that ain’t hay.” (Bill slowly leaves the warehouse, inhaling large puffs of smoke and letting them out at each step.)

He . . . he . . . hey, boy. Gimme a paper. Quick! Newsboy: Yes sir! Mugsy: Bill Hale attempts to rob bank at closing time. Shot through the heart. Why that dirty rat!

Jane: What’s everyone cheering for? Jean: Oh we made a basket! Isn’t that nice? Jane: Swell! Oh it’s the beginning of the game now. I didn’t notice when the preliminary game was over. I never bother with preliminary games anyway. Jean: Neither do I. Well, let’s watch now. Oh look the referee called a foul on one of our players. Jane: I wish the referee was on our side. Jean: Oh look, that other player intercepted the ball just when one of our players was going to make a basket. Isn’t that mean? Jane: How can we have four points? We’ve only made two baskets. IS IT OR Stranger: Oh, Miss! Could you please tell me the whereabouts of Parkington Street? Miss: Well, you follow Maple Street to the end and turn right. No, I think it ' s shorter if you go over the hill. And when you-ah-er . . . Stranger: I don’t mean to interrupt but where is Maple Street? Miss: Oh, you silly thing! You’re a stranger in town, aren’t you? Well, you’re on Maple Street now. Stranger: Which end of the street do I go to and I don’t see any hill anywhere. Miss: You just turn your car around and go in that direction. The hill goes down quite steeply and the path is well, not very wide. Two people can walk . . . Stranger: Listen, Miss. I don’t want to walk. I want to drive my car. I don ' t care whether two can walk there or not. I — want — to — drive — my — car — there. See? Miss: Don’t have to shout so. I can hear you. If you want to get to Parkington Street, keep going the way you’re facing now. Don’t need to turn around. On the right side you’ll see . . . Stranger: A minute ago you told me to go just the opposite way. Miss: Oh, I know. That’s the way everybody goes when they walk. If they ride they have to go all around the town because there isn’t any road from this way. The Street Department or whatever you call it is . . . Stranger: Look, Miss. I don’t care about your Street Department. Just tell me — how — to — get — there. That’s just a little favor I’m asking of you. Miss: But our Street Department is very slow in doing things, you know. Stranger: So are you, Miss, in giving directions. Jean: Each basket counts two points, silly. Jane: I may be silly, but I’m not as dumb as you are I hope. That translation you gave in Latin this morning was a scream. Jean: Really? Well, at least I don’t get my nouns and adverbs mixed up in English. Jane: Hurray we made a basket. Oh — I mean the other team did. Jean: Did I tell you about the new dress my aunt sent me? It’s too cute for words. It’s light blue and has a lace collar. You must come over and see it. I saw one almost exactly like it in Vogue last week. Jane: I bought a new skating skirt the other day. It’s red velvet and has the loveliest flared skirt. Jean: What’s everyone getting up for? Jane: The game’s over. Jean: Oh, who won? . Jane: Let’s see — oh, we did. Isn’t that wonderful? Jean: Perfect! Wasn’t it an exciting game though? Jane: Wasn’t it. I’m glad I was able to come and see it. I would have just died if I missed it. Jean: So would I. — Olive Leonard ISN’T IT? Miss: All right, then. Somewhere down the end of this street on your right, you’ll see a theatre, or a lot of them for that matter. Well, when you see one ad- vertising a movie with Robert Gaylord, you go right by it. The picture isn’t very good. I saw it five times. Well, anyway, about six or seven streets further, or maybe it’s eight, turn to your left. After having done that you’ll see a lot of side streets, but don’t dare turn in any of them. Stranger: Why not? Miss: Because they’re all dead-ends. Hee-hee. Stranger: Where do I go then? Miss: Go to the very, very end of that street, and turn to your left again. Then, I think you ' ll be some- where near . . . Say, what street did you say you were looking for? Stranger: Park — ing — ton Street. Say, where have you been taking me all this time? Miss: For crying out loud! Why didn’t you say you wanted Parkington Street! That’s where I live. Stranger: Oh-oh-oh! Your name couldn’t be Isa- bella Victoria Smith, could it? Miss: Let me see. Oh yes! That’s me. That’s the name I used in the Soap Bubble Blowing Contest last month. Stranger: Why didn ' t you say all this before? Miss: You didn’t ask me. And, anyway, I don’t tell strangers anything! Stranger: You’re telling me! Here’s a check for $ 5 00 for you. You won second place in the contest. Good-bye! Thanks for all the information you didn’t give me. Miss: Well, what do you know? He sounded a little mad, didn’t he? Well anyway, he gave me a check for $500. A check for $500! Oh-h-h, and I didn’t even tell him where I lived. — C.

Bob: Today with this wind we’ll make the “Osprey” do his stuff. Joe: Yesterday was Saturday wasn’t it? I under- stand Dick didn ' t work yesterday and got some practice. Bob: Why should we care? We’ve won for the last two years. .Toe: Let’s go down and get her into the dock. Some of the others are already sailing around. Bob: The race starts at 10 o’clock. Have you got the stop watch? Joe: You bet I have. I wouldn’t race without one. It’s hard enough to get a good start with it. Bob: Hi Rob! How’s the “Red-Wing?” She looks as though she were ready to beat anybody. Rob: Well, 1 don’t know. She’s going to try hard. It will be hard to beat your reputation. Joe: There is always a first time you know. Bob: We’ve got to hurry. You unhitch the dory while I get the outboard started. Joe: This is a lively little tub isn’t it? It’s not had. I got tired of rowing it. Bob: Don’t let her bump. Joe: This is going to be fun. I like getting ready for one of these races. Look! The skipper and race officials have just arrived. Bob: Things will be happening around here now. Joe: Holy smoke! By my watch it is quarter of ten. The warning shot will go off at five of. Bob: Everything is all set isn’t it? The sails are all trimmed, bilge water pumped out, rudder shipped, stays tightened and ropes coiled. It looks as if we are ship shape. Joe: Wait a minute. What would or could we do without the centerboard down. You know as well as I. Bob: Listen! What is it they are saying through the loudspeaker? Joe: Ch, they’re just trying to hurry some of the slow fellows. You know there always have to lie a certain number of laggers no matter what you do. Bob: Let’s get out on the line. Joe: What a wind! Bob: There it goes. Check the time. The last gun in five minutes you know. Joe: Bob, you race her this time. Bob: O. K. We ' ll have quite a time against thir- teen boats. .Toe: Five seconds. Go. Bob: What luck. We’re third from the last over the line. Joe: Never mind. We can beat them yet. Bob: They’re two laps over two-thirds, and we’re third. Joe: Yes and it’s getting tougher overhauling each one we overtake. Bob: One boat ahead of us. I guess we can’t make it. Joe: We haven’t done so badly. Twelve of them have fallen behind us. Bob: We had better step on it to even keep second. Joe: The “Red-Wing” gets it this year. He’ll beat us by about half a minute. We’ve got to make two more tacks and he’s starting on his last leg. Bob: He just pulled a boner. You notice how close he went into the shore. He’ll lose his wind in there. Joe: Let’s tip this baby up and get her closer into the wind. Maybe if we can get across the river before he gets out and make him give the right away to us we can win yet. We’r on the starboard tack and all other boats must yield. Bob: I’ll see if I can do it. Joe: Take it easy. We just took some H20 over- board. Bob: Yes sir, we’re going to make it. Joe: Boy! We almost rammed him. I’ll bet Rob’s mad. I wouldn’t blame him. Bob: There goes the gun. Joe: We won. Wow! That was the closest and most thrilling race I ' ve ever been in or seen. Bob: Gee, I feel sorry for Rob. Joe: Oh, he’ll be a good sport about it. — Robert Richardson FISHERMEN’S LUCK Bob: Gee, Tom, we’ve got to make better hauls than we ' ve been making or Dad’s lobster business will surely “go on the rocks.” It was hard enough trying to make ends meet before Mom’s operation, but now we’ve got all the doctor’s bills to figure on. Tom: Yeah, and this old tub is about ready to cave in. Dad said only the other day that we’d have to be getting a new boat. If the lobsters were only running better, we wouldn’t have to worry so much. Gosh! Look at the sweet haul we got yesterday! Eleven — and four of those were too small. Bob: Yeah, I know. Boy, I’d like to get ahold of the guy that said the Maine lobster fishermen wouldn’t have to worry about anything this year. I ' d use him for lobster bait — then maybe we’d get something big. Tom: Ha! Ha! Yeah. Probably a mess of sand sharks or skates or something. Bob: Say, it’s getting late — almost three-thirty — we better get a move on and pull up the rest of the traps before it gets dark. That storm warning was out for about five o’clock you know. I’d hate to get stuck here in a Northeaster at this time of year. Pa«re Sixty-© ne THE OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS FALLS 1041 Tom: You said it! We wouldn’t last half an hour in a rough sea. Dad said he almost capsized in that storm the other day, and that wasn’t anything com- pared to what they expect today. Let’s get going. Tom: Whew! Well, there goes the last one, and what luck! Sometimes I wish that Dad hadn’t gone into the lobster business, especially when we have to work so hard for only half a bushel of those measley things. Better get the engine started, Bob. Those storm clouds look pretty threatening. Bob: Yeah! I guess the weatherman was right when he said we were in for a humdinger. The sea’s running pretty high already. Tom : I guess all the other boats have headed into port — I haven ' t seen any around for about half an hour now. Bob: Neither have I. I guess we headed back .iust in time. Say! Look over there to the north. Is that a fellow in an open boat, or am I seeing things? Tom: Where? Bob: Just over the crest of that big wave, there. See him? Looks like he’s waving to us! Tom: Oh! I see him now. He must be crazy to be way out here in a rowboat! Probably a city slicker from Portland. Say! He is waving to us! Looks like lie’s signalling for help. I’ll swing her over — it hadn ' t ought to take us more than five minutes to reach him. Bob: Looks to me like lie’s swamped. His oar is broken too — that’s what he was waving to us with. Ahoy, there! Ahoy! Fisherman: Ahoy! Hurry! I can’t stay up much longer! Tom: Hey, Bob. Do you smell something rotten? Seems like it’s coming from that fellow’s boat. Bob: Yeah, I just got a whiff of it. What a stink! Tom: Never mind that now! You catch hold of his boat when I swing up alongside. That’s it! Bob: Howdy, mister. Looks like we got here just about in time, eh? Fisherman: You said it, son. Much obliged. I never would have lasted through the storm, especially with a busted oar. Tom: What’s all that stuff lying around in your boat, mister? It stinks something awful. We could smell it half a mile away! Fisherman: That’s a fortune lying there, son. Your lookin’ at about twenty thousand bucks worth of am- bergris. Bob and Tom: Wow! Fisherman: I was out fishin’ by the buoy when I first got a whiff of it, and I knew then that my lucky day had come at last. Make sure that boat’s hitched good and tight— I wouldn’t want to lose that now. What’s more, there’s two thousand bucks in it for you fellows for savin’ my life! I figure it’s worth that much to me! Bob and Tom: Oh, boy! Tom: That means that we’ll have enough money to pay the doctor and the mortgage, and maybe even a little left over to put into a new boat. Bob: Boy, that’s swell! And say, Tom, this storm will probably make the lobster fishing a hundred per cent better, just like that fellow’ said on the radio. Tom: Right you are! Gee mister, I’m sorry. We clean forgot to thank you, we’ve been so excited. You see, we’ve read all about strange things happening to fishermen, but we never thought, that when we started out this morning, that we’d have any fishermen’s luck like this! — Thomas Reynolds Pa e Sixty-two S ' I V 1C OLYMPIAN III). SCHOOL OK ' l l ItNERS FALLS I!) 1 1 ESSAYS EMERSON, THE THINKER Emerson is regarded by many as the greatest thinker and philosopher that this country has produced. He is probbaly quoted more frequently than any other American intellectual scholar. He has had a great deal of influence on this country of ours. I think that although he is sometimes deep and his topics are varied, that it is obvious even to a high school student that his essays and writings really center around a few cen- tral truths or principles. If one can keep this in mind, a careful study of Emerson becomes less difficult. On subject to which he refers again and again is that of Self-Reliance. Not only did he write an essay on this subject but the idea itself runs through all his essays like a thread of gold. He says in this essay, “I must be myself, I cannot break myself any longer for you or you. If you can love me for what I am, we shall be happier.” And again he says, ‘‘Discontent is the want of self-reliance, it is infirmity of will.” This ON THE PLEASURES What a thrill, what an infinite calm it gives me to think of how minute and unimportant we, in this world of ours, are. The Earth, one of the smallest planets, is whirling about in a universe which extends beyond the conception of mortals. What is beyond our little world? Is Earth the only inhabited planet, and how much longer will people live here? When, how, and why did God create our world? Not the most learned scientist professes to know the correct answers to these eternal questions. Only God can know. I like to gaze at the sky and speculate about eternity. What is Heaven like? Just to think about this last SOME REFLECTIONS AFTER READING The picture I always get of England is that of a crafty politician. Russia on the other hand leaves me also a picture of a man, but one that is poor, thin from hard work and without the look of intelligence that I see in England. Mexico always leaves with me a picture of a beautiful, happy, hard-working woman. Many, when we mention the United States, picture an elderly gentleman wearing an old-fashioned suit of red, white, and blue whom we all know as “Uncle Sam.” I, on the contrary get a very different picture of the United States. I believe the picture would be more real if it were one of a young, plain, beautiful and intelligent woman. First, I would have her young, for in comparison with the other countries ours is very young. Second, she must be beautiful to match the beauty of our forty-eight states. Third, she must be thought he repeats again and again in his writings. Emerson would have every individual write upon his heart as a life motto, “Insist on yourself, never imitate.” Emerson also believed in Justice. He said in his essay, “Compensation,” “Every crime is punished, every virtue rewarded.” He once said, “The dice of God are always loaded.” This next sentence brings out another belief of Emer- son. “We are idolaters of the old . . . we do not believe that there is any force in today to rival that beautiful yesterday.” God. himself once said, “Up and onward for evermore.” What better way can a person end an essay on Emer- son, the great, than to quote his strongest belief: “When a man lives with God, his voice shall be as sweet as the murmur of the brook and the rustle of the corn.” The essence of greatness is the perception that “virtue” is enough. — Elaine Lyon OF PHILOSOPHIZING question alone is enough to make me have faith in God. I have often wondered why I was put on this Earth. I have come to the conclusion that I am here to live as Christian-like a life as I can, helping others, with tolerance, and no racial or creed prejudices. If we perform our daily routine tasks with diligence, and are conscious of a loving, guiding spirit, we will do right. I like to think of how short our lives are in com- parison with the millions of years the world has been in existence. We are just as important as a drop of water in an ocean. Contemplations on these things soothe me when I’m tired or upset, and make my troubles diminish. —Martha Smith MRS. FISHER ' S ESSAY ON VERMONT plain and intelligent as are the people in our great democracy. I would have her, unlike Uncle Sam dressed in a modern dress to match the progressiveness of our country. Like Uncle Sam I would have her wearing the colors of our flag standing for the people’s spirit of Americanism and Democracy. The first inhabitants, our fore-fathers, came to this great country seeking a place where they could exer- cise those principles for which our democracy stands. They fought the Revolution in order to make it an everlasting democracy. The World War in which we fought was to help others obtain the liberties we were enjoying. Even now we are again preparing to pro- tect what we believe the greatest government in the world, The Democracy of the United States. — John Muszynski Cage Sixty- tli !• «■ THE OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS FALLS 194 1 ON GOING ' School to me, sometimes is a pleasure. It affords me the opportunity of meeting boys and girls my own age and engaged in the same work. There are various clubs to which I may belong and in the activities of these clubs, many interesting problems are encountered. In school, I am faced with the opportunity of being on the staff of the school paper, with all its trials and tribu- lations. Various assemblies and plays are presented, in which I may participate. Every so often a dance is held in the gymnasium, where I might go to spend an evening and enjoy myself. I also am privileged to attend the football, baseball and basketball games on payment of a small fee. Usually, once a week and some times oftener, one of my classes is omitted and I go to the auditorium for an assembly program which is always entertianing and educational. In contrast to the social pleasures of school is the more important aspect of school life, the educational benefits. A great many students profess their dislike of school, but if they look on it as a pleasure instead of an obligation they would see the benefits to be reaped. 1 look on school as a means to attain an end. In these times, a person has to have at least a high school edu- ON £ During my summer vacations I spend a great deal of my leisure time sailing. It doesn’t matter much to me what kind of a boat I use, as long as it has some sort of a sail and a center board or outriggers. Many are the happy hours that I have spent skimming over the waters of the Connecticut River in a canoe, pulled along by an improvised sail which was sometimes noth- ing more than a beach umbrella. In spite of all the fun I have sailing on the river, I always find myself looking forward with great im- patience to the two weeks that I spend at the sea shore. It is there, on Long Island Sound, that I enjoy my happiest sailing days. There’s nothing I like better than to start out on some nice sunny day, when the wind is blowing steadily, and sail across the sound. As you stand at the helm, looking ahead over the how at the rapidly growing islands, you can not help but feel like a great explorer about to claim some unknown land for his country. Then, there are always the bold, squawking sea gulls, the yachts, and the majestic schooners to watch as they ro SCHOOL cation and in many cases a college education to obtain a satisfactory position in life. Therefore, I want to get somewhere in this world and the only way is to go to school to acquire knowledge realizing the necessity in- stead of attending classes just because I have to attend them. But to me, school is more than a place to study and to meet people. It is a place where I may learn the tricks of life and how to handle difficulties which might arise. It is not a place for a ? ? ? man or woman of every walk of life, but a place where the student is the main character being molded into shape by experienced hands. Therefore, I look upon school as a pleasure and a privilege which many boys and girls of far-off lands are denied. School life is wholesome and beneficial and it provides the right environment which every student needs in order to grow and be ready to assume the task of governing this great and wonderful country in which we live. A country is only as strong as its weakest link and therefore I feel that if a person has pride in his country, he should look upon school as a pleasure, which will, in the final analysis benefit him and make his beloved country strong. — Francis Hickey i AILING slip swiftly and silently by. It is always great fun to land and explore the many islands off the Connecticut coast, probably the most interesting of which is Plum Island with its gigantic dirigible hanger and under- ground forts. When you get tired of sailing, all you have to do is run into some secluded cover, anchor your boat and stretch out in the sun to read your favorite book. Sailing also affords a great opportunity for one to get away from other people; forget about the affairs of the world and just day dream. There is always some exciting incident that occurs during such a “voyage,” such as coming upon bits of floating wreckage, or having a rail put under by a sudden gust of wind. You might even have the excit- ing experience of riding out a gale or thunder storm. It is all these things that, when combined with the creaking of the rigging, the whistling of the wind through the sails, the slapping of the waves, and the flying salt spray, make you feel glad to be alive and above all, to be living in the good old U. S. A. — Thomas Reynolds Paffe Sixty-four 2 OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS FALLS 1»41 STORIES BLOW YE WINDS, HEIGH-HO The S. S. Monitor was returning from Bermuda and was due in New York at 7 a. m. tomorrow. At six none of my party were to be seen, I suppose they were packing, as I should have been. I was practically the only one on deck except for one man leaning against the rail in the bow. I could scarcely see him for it was extremely foggy. While I was reclining in my steamer chair a gust of wind blew my blanket away. Leaping up, I chased the runaway down the promenade deck. I caught the blanket just as it wrapped itself around the rail. I had been running so fast I couldn ' t stop, and I crashed into and part way over the bars. For one sickening second I hung there staring into the foaming wake of the ship. I righted myself and hugging the wall, I hurried up the deck against the wind, w ' hich was so strong now that 1 made scarcely any headway. A sailor ran by me and shouted, “Get below, miss, we’re in for a blow.’’ I yelled back but my words just blew off into space. A deck chair came slithering down the deck and banged against my knees. I limped along until I reached a quiet spot. Soon the wind intruded there, too, and I plunged into the gale. It was raining now, and soon I w ' as drenched. After a while I realized that I had only gone a few yards; I stopped to rest and I heard someone shout. 1 hoped it might be someone looking for me. I peered around but there was no one there. Again I heard the shout faintly. This time it sounded more like a groan. I W ' as sure the cry came from ahead so I fought my w ; ay up the deck. In about ten minutes, I found a life boat lying across the deck. Out of breath, and gratefult for its shelter, I sank down behind it. A voice near my head said, “Thank Heavens, you got here! Help me get free. The boat tumbled onto my leg, I don’t think it’s broken.” I started and cried out. The man said, “Sorry, I frightened you, but I thought — say you’re a girl. Good night! what good are you?” I replied in a huff that I w ' as good for a lot of things, and I’d get the old boat from his leg if he’d be quiet. He lay still on his face while I felt around to find his leg. When I asked him if it hurt he didn’t answer. I spoke louder but no answer, so I crawled up to his head. He had fainted dead away. By this time the wind had reached express train speed. Once, I lifted myself above the boat and tum- bled backwards. After much lifting and tugging, I pushed the boat away. I lay back against it exhausted. The ship was pitching and tossing like a piece of soap in a W ' ashing machine. The waves began to surge over the deck in increasing strength. The water revived my companion and he sat up. Looking around he said, “We’d better tie ourselves to the rail.” When he attempted to move he fainted again. The deck was slippery and I seized him by his coat and slid him to the crossbar rail. The waves grew hugher and one receding mountain swept us against the rail. As quickly as I could I knotted his coat belt and mine together and bound him and myself to the bars. For the rest of that night we were buffetted and half drowned by the waves and torn at by the wind. After a while I lost consciousness. When I came to a sailor was shaking me and the sky was clear. We are now waiting for the Coast Guard cutters to tow the crippled Monitor into port. — Shirley Schneider ALL IN THE DAY ' S WORK We of the London Fire Fighting Squad Number 5, were tired — dog tired. For days we had almost cease- lessly fought fires caused by incendiary bombs dropped by enemy bombers. But we had become so accustomed to exhaustion by now that we worked mechanically. The hardest working yet most cheerful member of our squad was Heath. He rested even less than the rest of us did and this was hardly at all, for the time when we used to eat and sleep normally seemed to be years ago in the dim dim past. Heath fought the almost perpetual flames determinedly and even when he staggered from exhaustion he worked grimly on until compelled by force to rest. There were many heroic deeds performed in our com- pany but the one I recall most vividly is the one en- acted by Heath. We were trying to get control of a fire which w ' as raging right next to a hospital near Heath’s home in the suburbs. If the fire spread it would burn the hospital in which were quartered several hundred patients whom it w ' as impossible to move elsewhere. We had at last gained control of the fire and I gazed at the quiet street with its small white houses like Heath’s. Having spent his childhood in the crow ' ded city, Heath’s greatest desire had alw ! ays been to own a home of his own and he had worked for years before finally acquiring it. In peacetime all his spare time had been spent in working in his small garden or in ' age Sixty-five THE OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS FALLS J 0-4 I keeping his lawn in trim. At present the house pre- sented a lonely aspect for it was vacant as Mrs. Heath and the children were in the country. My thoughts were suddenly cut short by the sight of a bomb which had landed only a few feet from the entrance of the hospital. Miraculously, or so I thought at first, it had not exploded. Then someone shouted, “It’s a time bomb! The entire hospital will be destroyed if it goes off!” Swiftly — silently we began to dig. Our only con- cern was to save the hospital. Fortunately it had not buried itself very deep in the ground. Our dangerous task seemed almost completed until someone ex- claimed: “What will we do with it now? Another fire has started on the next treet and we cannot spare a single man to take it out to the country to be exploded.” For a moment no one spoke. There was the bomb which might explode at any second and so perilously close to the hospital. Then I heard Heath speaking calmly: “Take the truck over to that little white house a little away from the others. Explode it there. I’m sure the owner will not object to the loss of his house.” I gasped. Heath was going to let them destroy his dearest possession — the result of years of toil — in order to save the hospital. And, as the explosion which swept away his cherished home shook the street, I heard Heath say cheerfully, “Come on boys. We’ve work to do.” — Olive Leonard I a«e Sixty-six THE OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS FALLS 1041 POETRY CHRISTMAS EVE IN LONDON The roar of guns, cannons, the drone of planes Incessant, strange carols these for Christmas Eve A soldier, turning home on holiday leave Finds darkness, no candle-lighted window panes Welcome him.

Re- hearsals for its first appearance — at the Fair — began in August. From then until June rehearsals were held twice weekly. The football season found the band extremely busy since it attended all the home games and went to Athol and Greenfield besides. Just before Thanksgiving the drum and bugle corps was added to the band, thus making the total number of pieces nearly sixty. At the same time the band purchased new hats so that now their uniform is complete. During the winter basketball games kept the band very busy since it often played once or twice every week. The band played a concert on the last night of the basketball tournam ent at Massachusetts State College also. The highlight of the year was the Western Massachusetts Music Fes- tival which was held in Athol. Flere, Dr. Edwin Franko Goldman gave the band a rating of excellent for the playing of the overture “Aladdin’s Lamp” and “Cabins.” In twirling competition the drum majors Sarah Lipinski and Ellen Beluinas received first and second ratings respectively. At the music festival the Choral Club also received a good rating. The next appearance of the band was at the various field days at the different schools in the town. Besides playing in Turners Falls on Memorial Day it also played in Sunderland in the afternoon, in Montague on Sunday before and in Gill the Sunday afterward. All the school’s musical organizations took part in the “High School Varieties.” The band was first on the program. The mixed Glee Club sang several selections. The Choral Club also sang several numbers. The or- chestra, which played at the various assemblies, senior play, and prize speaking during the year accompanied the Glee Club. The band’s season ended with a consolidate concert played with the Turners Falls Military Band on Friday, June 6th. With the exception of the orchestra which played at Class Day and Graduation the work of the other musical organizations ended with the Variety Show.

Coach Joe Sheff’s track squad of 1940-41 had the most successful season in the history of the school. At the outset the candidates didn’t look too promising as the team was hit heavily by graduation but under able coaching and continual practice the boys became a polished squad both in the dashes and in the field events. The annual Franklin County Fair Meet was easily won by Turners as they piled up 60 points to Greenfield’s 35. Of the fifty boys participating in the events, twenty-five of them scored 31.5 points for the season. The senior boys who received letters were E. Maleski, F. Fowler, R. Stoughton, R. Breault, R. Nagle, L. Long, M. Brown- ing, and E. Walichowski. Others outstanding were Captain Milkev, R. Rrunelle, R. Cleveland, W. Kostanski, and T. Martin. Summary: 1.

The score was 25-6 in favor of Greenfield. Our 1940 team was made up of Leo Grogan and Edward Walichowski, ends; Rolland Berthiaume and Lawrence Emond, tackles; Emile Paulin and Edgar Gagne supporting John Muszynski at center. In the backfield were Captain Edward Corbiere quarterback, Robert Kiley fullback, Edward War- yas, halfback and Captain-elect Harvey Welcome halfback. The team also had a fine manager in Chester Pietraszek. The team did not have any individual stars this year but was a well- balanced one. Leo Grogan’s name was placed on the Western Massachusetts Honor Roll. Although we were defeated by Greenfield the season was still a success. Turners won seven and lost three, scoring 154 points to the opponents’ 71.

Page Eighty-eight THE OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS FALLS 11141 GIRLS’ BASKETBALL For the first time since the girls entered the Hampshire League did they win. Wtih two good coaches how could any team help but win! All in all they played eleven games, winning ten and losing only one. Because of their good playing, and winning of the Hampshire League Cup the annual banquet was held at the Turners Falls High School, Mr. George Wrightson being the master of ceremonies. It was held on May 7. and the girls enter- tained about seventy visitors. After Miss Townsley (Mrs. Frost) left Mrs. Helen Reidy took over her position. Although the girls had the experience to back them up, Mrs. Reidy showed them a lot of new tricks, making a winning ball club. They com- bined “zone guarding” and “man to man " guarding which proved to be quite successful. This year the team-work was excellent. Only three girls will leave the squad. These are Marilyn Couture, Cap- tain, Marion Cunniff, and Lillian Eddy. The remaining girls who will again play next year will be: Laura Descoteaux, Margaret Zamojski, Emelia Cislo, Amy Clark, Elaine Neveu, Phyllis James, and Alice Legere. The following points were made during the entire season by the for- wards : M. Couture, Captain 127 Points P. James 112 Points L. Descoteaux 63 Points A. Legere 41 Points E. Cislo 2 Points Total 345 Points Although the guards are not allowed to shoot in a girls ' game, they play even a harder role by stopping the opponents from scoring. The guards are losing two of their best guards this year, Lillian Eddy, and Marion Cunniff. The remaining girls will have to do a lot of practicing if they wish to fill the shoes of these graduates. Ei«li( j-niiie THE OLYMPIAN HIGH SCHOOL OF TURNERS PAL UM1 P:iKe Ninety THE OLYMPIAN IIIGII SCHOOL OF TFHNERS FALLS liMl BASEBALL J his year s ball team, packed with young blood, started the season by beating Athol. 1 he team defends the Western Massachusetts and Valley League titles. 1 his is quite a task for a young team but under the guidance of Mr. Lorden it hopes to ride again the trail of success. I he team with such pitchers as Raymond Bellemore, Arthur Burke, and Walter Kostanski has been able to beat Athol, Commerce, Chicopee, North- ampton and Greenfield which by the way was an extra-inning game. Turn- ers so far has suffered its only defeat at the hands of Holyoke who is leading the Valley League as the book goes to press. This was a close game in which Holyoke broke ahead. I urners [lower at the bat is its best weapon. This power has been proved in quite a few games especially in those with Commerce and Chicopee. This year’s team also ill ustrates the ability that Mr. Lorden has of bringing- out the best in his players. The team has a splendid spirit and never knows when to give up. In past years this has brought them quite a way and we surely hope that it will result in hitting the trail to Springfield once more.
