Page Forty-three WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 Class History We the class ol ’46 entered high school amid the confusion and turmoil of war times. This, added to the usual freshman bewilderment, made it difficult for us to become accustomed to a new system. Many of our classmates never finished that first year, leaving us to join the ranks of our armed forces. We, who re- mained behind, sought to follow their example of serving our country. Besides our studies we took jobs in mills and stores and on farms. We participated in scrap drives, clothing drives, bond and stamp rallies and other patriotic movements. Our War Service Club was formed under the leadership of our class teacher, Miss McGillicuddy. Four members of the faculty also left us to enter the service. Mr. Foley, Mr. Richardson, Mr. Shumway and Mr. Sheff all left vacancies that were difficult to fill. Later in our school years we learned to our great sorrow that Mr. Sheff had been killed in action. Our first social event, the senior-freshman dance, at which we were the guests of the seniors aided us considerably in becoming more at ease in our new environ- ment. In the sports field we met with our first success. Many of the boys who took an active part on those freshman teams later became varsity material. The following are some of the boys who started their sports careers on freshman teams: Royer Collins, Eddie Stotz, Bob Milkey, Paul Corbiere, Fran Stoughton, Sam Couture, Tim Golembeski, Eddie Kerswig, Billy Carroll, Bob Knight and, as manager, Carl Dresser. As sophomores we endeavored to undertake the responsibilities of a class by electing our class officers. Royer Collins was elected class president, Bob Milkey, vice-president, Phyllis Ryan, secretary; Patricia Garneau, treasurer; Mildred Frawley, historian. We sponsored our sophomore dance, which was our first function as a class and which we considered a complete success. In the field of sports our boys and also girls were varsity members busily improving their style of play, preparing for the day when the success of sports at Turners High would depend on their ability. Again in our junior year we elected class officers. Royer Collins, president; Bob Milkey, vice-president; Phyllis Ryan, secretary; Patricia Garneau, treas- urer; and Bob Knight, historian. These officers were re-elected the following two years. Soon after class elections prize speaking try-outs were held. Our class proved to be quite talented and a choice of the winners was difficult. Finally Margaret Bane, Patricia Garneau, Margaret Engelhard, Elaine Sullivan, Eugene Gould, Norman Lapointe, Bob Milkey and Bob Knight were chosen to represent their class. The contest itself was a credit to our class and to Miss Teed’s direction. Margaret Bane won first prize with her exceptional presentation, of Maureen Daly’s “Sixteen.” Patricia Garneau’s portrayal of a young girl seeking her place in the world kept the audience in a humorous mood and won for her second place honors. Third prize went to Bob Milkey for his highly dramatic presentation of “The Adventures of Joe Smith, American” by Paul Gallico which held the audi- ence breathless. During our junior year we could not neglect our social obliga- tions, therefore we devoted our efforts to the best of our abilities to the Junior Prom. Under the very able leadership of our class teacher, Miss McGillicuddy, Page Forty-four ‘WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 we decorated beyond recognition, the high school gymnasium. This Prom was the more remarkable because it was war time and it is still a mystery to many where the beautiful decorations came from. The decorations included beautiful streamers that hung from the ceiling and flowed gracefully with all the colors of the rainbow to the sides forming an arc of beauty for the dancers. One wall was completely covered by a huge rainbow which ended in the traditional pot of gold. The entire project was handled smoothly and efficiently, and was another success of which we may well be proud. We began our senior year by welcoming in the freshmen with the usual freshman-senior dance. Next we switched to the field of sports where our football team tied a strongly favored Greenfield eleven. It took a great deal of loyalty, but many of our classmates stood in the rain-soaked, mud-field grid-iron on Thanksgiving Day to watch the light Turners squad roll the Green wave back. The entire season was successful with Turners losing only one game. Each game, a new captain was appointed to take the place of Ronnie LaRoche, our captain- elect, who had joined the Navy. Senior play was another success credited to our class. Sixteen hundred people, a record breaking audience, cheered and laughed throughout the per- formances of both nights. The stage was beautifully decorated, remarkably life- like with the most appropriate furniture. The play itself was “Junior Miss’’ a humorous presentation of the trials and tribulations of the average family. The cast included Peggy Bane, as Judy Graves; Elaine Sullivan, as Mrs. Graves, her mother; Barbara Bradley, as Fluffy Adams, Judy’s best friend; Adeline Banash, as Lois Graves, Judy’s sister; Bob Knight, as Harry Graves, Judy’s father; Bob Milkey, as J. B.; Bob Sabato, as Willis Reynolds; Phyllis Ryan as Ellen Curtis. During our stay at Turners many new additions were made to the faculty. Mr. Welsh, Mr. Vinton, Mr. Prondecki, Miss Maguire and Miss Crean were among these. Air. Foley returned to Turners after being discharged from the service. Also during the four years we were at Turners the Boy’s Glee Club was established. Charter members who are still active in this organization include Bob Milkey, Royer Collins, Roland Campbell, Sam Couture, Fran Stoughton and Bob Knight. And so we leave the hallowed halls of Turners High School better men and women than we were when we came. We are deeply indebted to all our teachers and advisors and to Miss McGillicuddy, whose patience and self-sacrifice has helped to make our stay successful. So as we take our places in the world we shall always remember Turners High and the memories of our Alma Mater will always be among our most treasured. Robert Knight, Class Historian Page Forty-five TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” Page Forty-six “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL ' TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 " Junior Miss " The Class of 1946 on February 20 and 21 presented “Junior Miss” T urners High’s first attempt at comedy for senior play. There were two months of hard work connected with “Junior Miss.” Work not only for the cast and coach but for the business, property, and costume com- mittees plus the stage “crew.” It was a fine example of cooperation and team- work. When the going became rather rough no one grumbled. There wasn’t time to. Everyone from the stars of the play to the ushers gave his all toward making this year’s senior play the success that it was. This review started out to be just another review. The cast, — list of helpers, — resume of the play, etc. — But there isn’t much need for that in my estimation. We know who the actors were. We know who helped out. And certainly we know that the play was marvelous. It was a tribute to the class of ’46 and to our splen- did dramatic coach, Miss Teed. It was that and it was more. It showed what a group of people can do with a little ambition and a great deal of cooperation. The world itself can be aptly compared to our production of “Junior Miss.” The crews of workers went quietly about their tasks without asking praise or compensation of any sort. They did this because when opening night came they wanted to think that they had helped to create the production. The laughs, applause and handshakes belonged as much to them as to the actors and yet they were content to do without them. And there are millions like them the world over — little people that never share the fame and wealth of the great ones but who know that they are as much a part of the world and as important in their own small ways as any whom the crowds proclaim. The cast realized the responsibility that lay upon them. They were the few who were to make use of the “tools” presented by the crews. Like the renowned authors, statesmen, etc. theirs was the ability to perform the task prepared by the “little people.” Therefore it was their duty to perfect their talents and to utilize them for the achievement of the great goal. The world could learn a lesson from our small high school production of “Junior Miss” that of organization, cooperation, and having a definite goal, be it an unaccomplished ideal or a materialistic dream. The world will never know, perhaps. Mankind has had the answer to happiness and peace before its eyes in myriads of instances — like our Senior Play. Perhaps we can learn at least. “ — There may not be many of us at first — one down this street, a few down the next, some here, more there, until they’re armies of us — millions and mil- lions. — ” It might even be up to us, The Class of ’46, the world over to do for all of mankind what a few high school people did in “Junior Miss.” Page Forty-seven ‘WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 Class Will . . . 1946 On this twelfth day of June in the year of our Lord 1946, we the Class of ’46, being of broken-down bodies and feeble minds, about to leave our beloved Alma Mater, amidst the cheering of the faculty and tears of our parents, doubtful as to our outcome, do hereby will and bequeath our million dollar property and per- sonality as listed in the following items: We leave to Mr. Wrightson “blessed peace” — need more be said? To Miss McGillicuddy we leave enough money for a year’s vacation. After being our class teacher for three years believe us she has earned it. To Miss Ayer we just leave, taking with us our split-infinitives, double negatives, slang, well’s, etc. To Mr. Lorden we leave a year’s pass to Jack Benney’s program so that he can get some new jokes to write in the margins. We also leave a special nine foot feather to tickle the students if he still can’t make them laugh. We leave a pair of stilts to Miss McGuire so that it won’t be necessary for her to use a telephone when talking with Mr. Burke. To the remaining teachers who have had the questionable honor of having us in their classes, we leave a hair-dying solution so that they may restore the golden hairs which we have caused to turn to silver. The senior members of the football team leave this slogan to next year’s team: “Remember Agawam!” We leave a special women-chaser to Mr. Lorden so he can keep the girls away from those nylon football pants of next year. Louis Milonas leaves all his nightclubs to his protige, Schnopps Hanley. Babo Lapean leaves Miss Crean a peaceful study hall. Eugene Gould leaves a book entitled “The Benefits of Army Life.” Our discharged vets leave a book entitled “Don’t Believe It.” The Aeronautics Club leaves to future members their favorite slogan. In answer to Air. Prondecki’s question, “What do you do now?” The answer was always " Bail out ” Hammy Smith leaves his playing cards to future members of the senior play cast, so they, too, may get together in a friendly little game during rehearsals. Eddie Stotz leaves to his brother Kerwin a book entitled “Wolfing Alade Easy.” All it really contains is a map of Greenfield. Bob Knight leaves to Smeeks Collins his ability to pick locks and skip classes. Dew Drop Stoughton leaves his characteristic of punctuality to Stymie Leete. Peggy Bane leaves Frank Sinatra to anyone who will accept him, and it is rumored that Peachy Ryan will be back for a P. G. Course to get him. Page Forty-eight “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 Patty Garneau and her side kick, Dut Killelea leave their little “Red Book” to Betty Greenlaw and Shirley George. Bob Milkey leaves his curly blond locks, most anywhere he goes. (Ask Sue Smith.) Slip Campbell leaves to Mrs. Whiteman of the cafeteria a chance to make a little profit, at last. Pewee Carignan leaves his Charles Atlas course to Budd Allen. Mill ie Wysk, Helen Cislo and Dot Pelis leave the Patch wide open to any brave boys who dare to enter. Bill Carroll, Tim Golembeski, Adam Malek and Joe Zayac leave their seats in detention rooms to Pollard, Carlisle, Shulda and LeMaire. Eddie Kerswig leaves to Rams Parenteau his basketball eye and wolfing technique, although Rams could do without the technique He learns fast!! Biz Christian and Diane Gelinas leave the worries of senior play to future assistant coaches. Jacky Carroll and Filka Kurtyka leave their ability to play basketball to Katty McGurgan and Pauline Berthiaume. Barbara Bradley and Anita Morin leave to Dot Thomas and Nancy Kelly their eagerness to get to school in all kinds of weather. Paul Corbiere, Russell Drago and Chet Mleczko bequeath their observa- tion seats in the Garden theater to Joe Dion, Paul Bourdeau and Eddie Trend. Bob Saulnier leaves a special machine to make the Netop staff pass in their assignments on time to the next Editor-in-Chief. P. S. His only regret is that he had not invented it sooner. Gloria Nadeau leaves her dictionary to any junior that goes into senior English class next year without one. Marie Hi-de-ho wills her wig to be distributed among the girls who are always lamenting their short hair. A bottle of her special super duper hair growing solution is included. C A U T ION!! Use only one drop at a time. It is mighty pow’ful stuff. Peachy Ryan and Peggy Engelhard leave their great, greater, greatest love for food — especially cheese sandwiches and chocolate pie (from “Bea’s”) to Peg ' s sister, Alice and Janice Ethier. The best way to study according to these food experts is to have a large supply of soda, cookies, candy, sandwiches and a couple of glasses of milk to wash it all down with at arm’s reach. This plan is guaranteed to produce “A’s” we hope! Ruthie Koch leaves her “speed” to Margaret Mullins — (a slight pause) Oh! I mean “speed” in shorthand. Betty Burnaw leaves her watch to Miss McGuire to be used only when her stop clock is out of order. Page Forty-nine " WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 Bernice Dorsey leaves to some fortunate future senior, the last seat in History class which she enjoyed very much and where she had time to catch up on her much needed sleep. Cecile Bourget leaves her so-called " position” as private secretary to Miss Helen McGillicuddy to that good-natured junior who answers to the name of Jean Donovan. We hope that Jeanie will be as successful as Ceil was. Peanuts Lapointe wills a carton of red pencils to his teachers because, to his regret, they used all the ones they had to mark his report card. To the future O. G’s Irene Bergiel, Helen Zak and Irene Czuj leave a pair of seven league boots so that they can keep up with Miss Teed on hikes. Junior Couture leaves his " Patascedacallisis” (asthma pills) to Tossie Milon as. Phyllis Regan and Lorraine Ethier leave their muscles to any two ener- getic juniors who may also enjoy carrying typewriters around. Oh-h-h-h- what muscles!! Elaine Sullivan leaves all future senior boys to the future senior girls. She is graduating to a higher class of wolves. Bob Sabato leaves his lust for life to Babbo Laramie. In case you didn’t know it, Mr. Laramie is the future U. S. President. SIGNED Royer Collins, President Robert Milkey, Vice-President WITNESSES Margaret Engelhard Norman LaPointe (Seal) Robert Sabato Page Fifty “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 Class Prophecy Once upon a time there lived a little girl who worked very hard in school to try to get only A’s on her report card. One day, in her Sophomore English class, she read an enchanting, charming story called, ‘‘Helen in Wonderland.” On the way home, still pondering over the marvels of the fantastic tale, she fell asleep: “Under the spreading chestnut tree,” Little Helen sprawls; In her sleep gliding o’er the sea, The isles of her dreams she recalls. As the stars twinkle above, Helen drifts lazily in on a moonbeam — She lands (fanfare and then drums, boom). As she stops to admire the golden sands shim- mering in the brilliance of the noonday sun, three dark-eyed, luscious, captivating damsels, namely — Louis Pepita Milonas, Bob Conchita Wyman and Bob Lolita Lapean rush to meet her. They all stop for a snack at “Sloppy Slip’s Savory Sandwich Bar and Soup Bowl.” Helen picks up three tanned, muscular natives, Francisco Legere, Pepe Zayac and Luis Zankin who escort her over the vine-tangled path. Stopping to admire a gorgeous waterfall they watch our famous artist, Marie Hayde, who is getting more furious every moment because the water simply will not stand still long enough for her to paint it As we near the city we are greeted with turbulence and general disorder. We are soon notified that it is merely a welcome home for those reknown world travelers and explorers, Peachy Ryan and Lorraine Ethier, who have just re- turned loaded down with trophies and such from their latest excursion , a non-stop flight to their next door neighbors, Phyllis Regan and Gloria Nadeau. They continue on their way and are taken aback by the whistling of two young wolves. When we inquire as to their names we learn that one is the son of Mr. Robert Knight, president and founder of that famous law firm, “Knight and Day” and the other is the son of the owner of “Peanut Grove,” Mr. Norman Lapointe. Well, you know the old saying — “Like father, like son.” Helen has been admiring the attractive hairdos of two natives, Theresa Killelea, a distinctive lab. technician and Dot Pine, and has decided to get her hair set. A flashy taxi (the Green Lizard) driven by Sam Couture pulls up to the curb and off she goes to the “Berns and Kinks Beauty Salon,” owned and operated by Helen Zak and Filka Kurtyka. Of course, being a woman, a new hairdo requires a new dress or vice-versa so the “Green Lizard” rolls Helen to the door of “Patch ’Em Up Dress Shop” to have a dress exclusively designed by Phyllis Ryan and made by our own skilled seamstress, Maryanne Jeronczyk. And of course she could not leave our island without having her photograph taken by our unusually skilled photographer, so off she goes to Houseman’s Photography Studio. The picture is enlarged and then beautifully painted by Rita LaChapelle who plans to go into business for herself in a few months. Perfectly happy over her picture, Helen is skipping along by the high school when she is hit in the eye by a ball. It seems that coaches Stotz and Smith are Page Fifty-one “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 training their boys for the coming season. Miss Bradley, the Math teacher, runs out to apologize and hurries her over to the “Call and We’ll Deliver Beef Market” where the proprietor, Mr. Howard Call, gladly, sells them a nice juicy steak for Helen’s eye. Suddenly they are startled by the screams of the entire feminine population. What’s all the excitement? — They run out to be greeted by the sight of faint- ing, swooning women. There is only one explanation: The Navy has landed! ! ! To list just a few of these glamorous, gallant, gallavanting gobs we have Carl Dresser: that red-headed sailor, Adam Malek, and Bob Sabato. It’s a double header! ! ! How could fate be so kind: Here’s the Army and rattling up in a jumping jivy jeep are none others than Alfred Lively, Peter Miner and John Golembeski. What!! Do our eyes deceive us? No, — we couldn’t be that fortunate — but w r e are. For here strolling languidly along is actually one solitary Merchant Marine, Harold Tibbetts. Flash! Bang! Crash! Helen is mowed down by “Speed Demon Sue Smith” who is on her way to the lab. to try out some new theory she has just developed. Pipione whizzes up in his super-duper ambulance and he and Donald Stark, his assistant, carefully speed the patient to the hospital. Esther Morrison, one of the head nurses, is at the desk and hurries Helen to a room where the Dr. Eddie Kerswig and the head nurse, Diane Gelinas, are waiting to do what they can to save the patient. After much thought and consultation they decide that it is merely a compound fracture of the second right phalanges. Dr. Kerswig’s private secretary, Beverly Haskins, hurries in to tell him that a new applicant for the Appendectomy College is waiting in the operating room. During her recovery she is painstakingly attended by Martha Venchus, Vir- ginia Stenard, Lillian Billings, Bernice Dorsey, Claire Lysiak, the obliging night nurse, and Mary Shanahan. Adeline Banash, the hospital dietician, prepared many tempting wholesome meals for her and she also tried out her favorite new recipe, “Kickapoo Joe Juice” on the patient. This, it is rumored, is the cause of her speedy recovery. Towards the end of her convalescence she went through the hospital and be- came acquainted with a group of highly intelligent laboratory technicians, Eileen Leveille, Betty Burnaw, and Pauline Senn. After her illness Mayor Maynott Collins extended his great sympathy and showed his true sorrow because of the accident by making her guest of honor on a special program at Robert Saulnier’s broadcasting station. The program, an- nounced by Francis Stoughton, was to be broadcast over station WOLF, and was sponsored by Eddie Molongoski, manufacturer of Agonizing Action Aspirins. Speaking of Mr. Molongoski’s product, let’s take a walk around the corner to his establishment and meet a few of his office girls. Florence Greene, his private secretary, willingly shows us about his exclusive office and introduces us to the business manager’s secretary, Mildred Wysk, Ruth Koch, the sales manager’s secretary, Cecile Bourget, the supervisor, Ida Smith, the head bookkeeper, and Phyllis Petroski, the desk clerk. At five all the workers pour out of “Carignan’s Cotton College,” owned and operated by that indominable man, Mr. Hubert Carignan. Page Fifty-two “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL " TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 As night falls softly on our island (CRASH) Helen is startled by the curfew. Peace is hardly restored when Lo! what manner of evil is this! Helen gasps as she and her companions are swept off the street by several brooms wielded by giant mechanical hands and soon the sidewalks begin to roll up. It’s nothing she is assured — It happens every morning and night. Just another brain child of that master inventor, Russell Drago! Helen spends the night in the luxury of the world famous Paulin Plaza managed by Miss Doris Paulin. The following morning being Sunday, she attends mass at the St. Mary’s Church, which is under the guidance of Father Gould, and Sister Superior, who was formerly Peggy Engelhard. Immediately after mass she arrives at the airport. M ayor Maynott Collins makes a presentation of a diamond broach from Milkey’s Jewelry Establishment Company Incorporated. Hammy Scoop Smith, our journalist, polite name for a reporter, is “Hammy on the Spot” gets a big write-up and pictures of the distinguished guest. During all the excitement “Einstein” Tibbetts is sitting in the middle of the run-way deeply engrossed in some new mathematical problem which has stumped the world ' s geniuses. Helen is assisted aboard by the stewardess, Irene Parzyck. Don’t worry folks, that man, who is always on the minute, Roland Shea, is there to drag our genius out of the path of the on-rushing plane. As she wings swiftly homeward she sinks back into the soft cushions of the plane and thinks reminiscently of the glorious day she has had.

Patty Garneau cleverly handled many student interviews and news stories; Eugene Gould wrote about and enjoyed dramatics, doing a fine job in that line; our exchange editor was Peggy Englehard who also reported Outdoor Girl activ- ities; Phyllis Ryan ably managed fashion and musical columns along with other assignments; the sports page contained the work of Royer Collins and Edward Kerswig; Esther Morrison was our efficient business manager and the reins of editor-in-chief were held by Bob Sanlnier. Production of the 1946 yearbook was begun in April when the staff decided that our yearbook would be one of the best yet produced. It was agreed to have a different style binding than those of the past few years. The entire staff worked hard to make the yearbook of ' 46 “the best yet” with Marie Hayde designing the attractive cover. The class will was written by Norman LaPointe, Robert Sabato, and Peggy Engelhard and the class prophecy by Marie Hayde, Peggy Engelhard, and Bob Saulnier. No account of our Netop or yearbook activity would be complete without acknowledging the cheerful and always efficient help of the four Commercial girls, Peggy Engelhard, Florence Green, Doris Paulin, and Ida Smith, who did all our typing for us so rapidly and smoothly. We all know that without their help this book could never have been sent to the printer.

Even Captain-elect, Ronnie Laroche, who had enlisted in the navy was missing from this inexperienced team. Only two veterans, Bob Milkey and Sam Couture, remained, but there were such seniors as Louie Milonas, Eddie Stotz, Snuffy Stoughton, Paul Corbiere, Royer Collins, Bob Knight, Slip Campbell, Billy Carroll, Lrank Pipione, Norman Lapointe and Joe Zayac ready to fill in the vacancies which were left. However, the Indians surprised the fans and themselves by showing that they were destined to be a good, scrappy team when they defeated Adams 31 0. Next the boys from Turners walked over Brattleboro in impressive style by a score of 33-0. In the third game of the season the “blue and white” faltered a little in one of the hardest fought games of the season to pull through with a 19- 19 tie with Drury. Then, the Indians began to exhibit the fight and spark which are character- istic of all Turners teams to rack up a score of 31-6 against Athol. The Power- towners continued their winning ways by trampling Gardner 34-7 and then going on to surprise and slaughter a vaunted Springfield Tech eleven by a 34-7 score. The Indians were riding the crest of a victory wave and kept on by defeating a big, tricky Westfield eleven 12-0. Then, the Indians toppled as they were beaten by one of the strongest teams which has ever represented Agawam High School. The score was 21-6 but the game was much closer than the score in- dicates. Except for two touchdown passes which gave Agawam the victory, the Indians battled the hitherto, undefeated, untied anti unscored upon Brownies on even terms. Next came a game which will go down in the history of the school as one of the bitterest, most hotly contested Thanksgiving Day games in the Turners- Greenfield series. Greenfield was undefeated, and untied and was aiming for the Western Massachusetts Championship. Their line averaged 196 pounds and was ac- claimed one of the strongest around. But, this was meat for the hungry, little Indians. Although outweighed 30 pounds per man the Powertowners proved that “guts” and “speed” could overcome superior weight. On a field better adapted for swimming because of the torrential downpour, the “blue and white” boys showed the fans that they were just as good swimmers as were Greenfield by emerging with a 12-12 tie. Thus the football season closed and the class of “46” showed that its boys were fighters who were unafraid of superior numbers and odds. Page Sixty -nine WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 Page Seventy “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 Baseball Although he had little veteran material to work with, Coach Lorden managed to produce a scrappy, spirited baseball team. This year’s team was young in years and experience with a great many sophomores and juniors competing for first team positions. Two veterans returned from the 1945 club, Tim Golembeski, ace pitcher, and Ramsey Parenteau, third baseman and pitcher. However, Eddie Stotz, Norm Lapointe, Joe Zayac, Slip Campbell, Snuffy Stoughton, and Rusty Drago, manager deluxe, have helped the Indian cause a great deal. The Indians opened the season by downing Hopkins Academy 3-2 in a tight pitchers’ duel and showed that they were a team to fear. After beating Holyoke 5-4, Turners’ foes began to realize that they were once more going to encounter a worthy opponent. The Indians kept up their winning ways by slaughtering Hopkins 19-2. However, their victory streak was short-lived and they lost a thriller to Orange in ten innings 7-6. Turners Falls bounced back to defeat two Valley League teams, Northampton 8-0 and Chicopee 4-1. Then Turners fell at the hands of Athol 8-2, and Holyoke 2-0. Once again the Indians went on the “warpath”, taking their old rivals Greenfield into camp on Memorial Day 2-0, then “scalping” Westfield 11-3. Thus far, the Indians have shown fine spirit and are bound to end up near the top.

Gracious, all those juniors do is grouch, We’ll be grand boys and girls when we’re juniors. 1944 1945 We’re juniors good as gold, But they say we’re very bold, Our prize speaking was just marvelous, And our Prom was simply glorious, And our class will surely have the best senior play. 1945 1946 W e’re seniors and must study, If we want to leave with a buddy, Sigh, last game, last class, last assembly, Some are sad and some are glad, maybe, But studying, detentions, classes, recesses, sports and clubs, How we’ll miss them! Margaret Engelhard Page Seventy-four WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 TONY My name she is “Tony da fruit man” I runna da little banana stan’. 1 sell da grapes, an’ peaches an’ dates An ' oranges, strawberries an’ pomagranates. All peepul dev like me very much Because I am such a very soft touch. They come by my stan’, An’ say, “You are my fran’.” I say, “Sure, Mike, sure Mike” But in my heart I know wat dey like All dey wan’ from me, Is an apple or banana for free. Josep h Zayac O O O TONIGHT EEN MEJICO Good evening, my fran’, an’ how are you? I ask, “Where do you go?” Oh, come, sect down; I tell you of Tonight een Mejico. I know thee air ees clear an’ cool; The moon ees shining bright; Thee stars — they tweenkle een thee sky; Eet ees a preety night. The cowboys work een sun all day, But now ees time for rest They play guitarras and seeng the songs Of Mexican happiness. My mother, my father, my familee, They theenk of me as 1 roam, An’ lovely Juanita says a prayer For Pepe who no ees at home. An’ now eet ees late — the lights, they die; My fran’, I am crying — all right? I’d geev my new serape to be Een Mejico tonight. Robert Saulnier Page Seventy-five " WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 LEADING A DOG’S LIFE “’Ose ' itty bitty snookums, is ' oo, urn?” It looks like Greek and sounds even worse, doesn’t it? Even I, the dog to whom it was addressed, can’t imagine what it means. It makes the fur on my back stand on end whenever I see a female with “that look” in her eye swoop down upon me. The way she holds me is something which shouldn’t happen even to a dog! Then when things look their darkest, she drops me and clashes off for some- thing. That can’t be a box of chocolates in her hand, can it? It is — much to my chagrin! After dancing on my hind legs for hours, she gives me the smallest piece of candy she can find, “so ’itty bitty snookums won’t get a tummyache.” (I never do get a “tummyache” after we visit this woman, but invariably I find blisters on my hind legs.) Then, to top it off — to add insult to injury, she ties the huge ribbon from the candy box around my neck. All the way home I try to sneak into the side streets so my canine friends won’t see my disgraceful condi- tion. Sometimes I wish I was a Great Dane instead of a Pekinese. It would give me a great deal of pleasure to take this woman by surprise someday, knock her over and stand on her, leering ferociously all the time. The only thought that comforts me is that someday I’ll have my revenge. And I will, too! Phyllis Ryan o o o PLEASE DO A circle, br-r-r-r-r, I hate them all. They are the most senseless, foolish, con- founding, — oh, I could go on by the hour and still never run out of adjectives. Perhaps this sounds absurd to you thinking humans but you thinking humans are absurd to me. You see, I am a horse — and a good one. Every three days I run. Yes — just run. I run from nobody to nobody. I go nowhere nor start for any direction. I just run. After I run I go to a corral then I walk — in a circle until I want to bite. It makes little difference how fast I run around the circle because nobody is ever satisfied. There is always somebody who curses my speed or my slowness. Personally I am in no hurry at all, and neither is my rider or those humans who watch. They have no place to go, yet day after day I chase my tail in that silly thing called a circle. There is a plea in my story — please hear it and remember. If ever you have a million dollars, I ask you on bended knees, four of them, please build me a race track that is straight. Robert Knight Page Seventy-six WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL " TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 BUTCH’S PRAYER God bless my Dad, An’ don’t let ’ini find the switch he lost. God bless my Mom, so sad, An’, gee whiz, mak’er forget the sorrow my dis’bedience cost. God bless my baby sister, An’ gosh sakes, I wish she wouldn’t alwiz cry. God bless Esther, An’ give her a richer fellow than that black haired guy. God bless my most best friend, Jackie, An’ fix’t so he’ll ’member he owes me a dime. God bless my dog, Blackie, And don’t let him get run over any time. Margaret Engelhard O O O Limericks FALSE ALARM I once knew a boy from the farm Who rang in a false alarm When asked why He said in reply I wanted to see the firetruck go by. Joseph Zayac SPEEDY There was a young man, oh so fast, In his car everybody he passed. His brakes failed to hold, His car, it did fold. And now he’s in bed in a cast. Royer Collins MEAT LINE There was a large line down the street So thinking, “It must be for meat,” I quickly got in, But much to my chagrin Found myself in a theater seat. Phyllis Ryan PLENTY OF ROOM There was a musician from Boston, Who had a little Austin, He had room for a drum and a horn anti a fife, But never had room for his wife. Frank Pipione Page Seventy-seven “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 THE PLAYFUL WIND The wind dances and skips from tree to tree, It trips through the grass that grows in the lea. It tosses the leaves which flutter and spin, And plays with the branches until it’s all in. Then it goes home to rest in its cradle, the sea. Royer Collins WHEN DAY IS DONE The velvet curtain of night fell Silence — except the ringing of the church bell Telling us that day is done Children must leave their play and fun. But night is as fair as day With its, stars, moon and Milky Way Let us appreciate darkness, too, Without the night what would we do! Irene Czuj WIND Swirling and whirling through the trees, The wind rises and then it falls, Scooping up leaves that lie in its path, Tossing tree tops about like kites Roaring and whistling through the autumn nights. Edward Stotz A WINTER DAY Light and sparkling crystals fall slowly to the ground, And cover all the land for miles and miles around. On every stump and post, is perched a cup of white, That gleams and glows like diamonds beneath the bright sunlight. At noon the wind begins to blow through every branch and twig, Causing all the little flakes to dance a merry jig. It groans and whistles low, and whisks and whizzes by, Sweeping as it passes, piling drifts up high. Then the wind stops howling when evening stars appear. Everything is peaceful and heaven seems so near. The moonbeams dance and play upon this wondrous sight. The beauty of winter prevails, through morning noon and night. Margaret Bane Page Seventy-eight “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 LETTER FROM THE SUN Dear people in the summer world I’ve given gifts to you Of light and warmth and grasses Of flowers brave and blue. I’ve left my light reflected At evening in the moon But one last gift I’m saving To give to you in June. So watch out for a package All wrapped and tied with light: Inside you’ll find the longest day And the very shortest night. Cecile M. Bourgel I HEAR AMERICA SINGING Listen America to The planes roaring, the church bells ringing The steel mills and the factories humming busily Radar reaching for the moon hopefully The farmer singing in his warborn jeep Plowing the fields and harvesting the wheat The dentist singing as he cleanses his instruments The doctor as he glances at his appointments The dams roaring and the battleships humming To the tune of a new age of atoms coming I hear America singing To a tune the world will be echoing. Adeline Banash AUTUMN A splash of color among the green, A spot of red among the maples The cooling air, The changing colors. Summer has gone once more. A hint of frost upon the grass The dry leaves crackling beneath your step The trees are bare The earth is dying. Awaiting Winter’s covering cloak. Mildred Jane Frawley Page Seventy-nine “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 GRADUATION DREAMS We entered high school tall and proud, And now we leave it, small and sad. We found days full of joy And days that were like a cell. We counted the days when we would be free Of teachers, books, and things, And now we dream of those happy days Wishing that graduation night had never come. Mary Ann Jeronczyk o o o NATURE’S AUTUMN OUTFIT Nature’s dressed in a brand new gown, In colors of the rainbow. And if you’d stop and look around You’d know why I say so. Her hat is green, her shoes are brown, Her parasol is blue. She wears the most colorful dress in town I think she’s stunning, don’t you? Theresa Sazama o o o OLD 109363 Here I am on the “dead track” for the rest of my life, but it was a good life — a busy one. I was manufactured in 1927 at the Wine Railway Supply Company in Erie, Pa. I was purchased immediately by the Boston and Maine Railroad, and put to work carrying paper supplies on that New England route. In my seven years on the B. and M. I carried everything, from bundles of straw to new stoves and frigid- aires. I was sent up for repairs three times and my numerals shone on a new coat of paint twice. Then, in 1934 I was sold to the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe where I saw service transporting wheat and other Southwest products. Like almost any freight car, I was handled roughly. Soon my brakes were beyond repair, I was extremely rusty, and my frame was broken on “the hump.” My working days were over. At a freight yard in Topeka, I was pushed on an old, out-of-the-way siding. Here I have remained for five years — merely sitting here in the “graveyard” with nothing to do but watch the young cars roll by and occasionally glance at my weatherbeaten nameplate — 109363. Robert Saulnier Page Eighty “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1946 THE RAINBOW The rain ceased and the sun’s crimson ray. Broke the gloom of a cloudy dreary day. A rainbow — a colored ribbon across the sky, People remarking “Beautiful” with a sigh. Irene Czuj O 0 O FALLING BLOSSOMS The last lingering rays of sunlight Shed their beams on the apple tree In a rosy pink glow. The wind brushes through the blossoms, Like the gentle kiss Of the first falling snow. Softly, slowly, the blossoms Break from the trees and waft down In a petal shower. Cascading down in graceful whirling dances, They lie on the ground — their bed — Each white waxlike flower. The moon casts its light on the tree With its branches outflung To the darkening sky. The tree stands alone till the first hue of dawn Then awakens to greet the spring morn. Soon to be nigh. Phyllis Ryan 0 0 0 MAYTIME When the calendar says Maytime That means it’s playtime, That is, high school baseball time And five o’clock rooster call time, Also June bug time; Beating the rug time, And May is Prom time. Though it rains sometime And begins pest time It is still the best time. Paul Corbiere Page Eighty-one “WITH FAITH WE CANNOT FAIL” TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1046 Adtve itilete Thanh Ijo-u!
