If IQJX RL Ii, LOR IJ ICN Page Six TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 ln Appreciation Mr. Earl Lorden, who is leaving the high school this year for a more im- portant position at Massachusetts State College, leaves to his successor many goals to shoot for. It is fitting to say here, that during his stay as an athletic supervisor and teacher, Mr. Lorden has been respected as a gentleman by his pupils, and also as a coach by the many boys whom he has taught. At one time, he was the head coach of three sports, basketball, baseball, and football. His coaching career here, began in 1923, when the baseball team was just beginning. Over the period of years from 1923 through the 1946 season, his baseball teams have established the fine record of 285 victories, 110 losses, and 3 ties. The outstanding one of these teams, of course, was the 1942 team, which journeyed to Boston and won the state championship. The 1937 and 1940 teams also made the attempt at Boston, but were not quite so successful. The records show that the next best squad to the '42 champs, was the '45 team which won 18 games against only 3 losses. The Indians won the Valley League in '42, '39, and '37. In 1926, Mr. Lorden started another "first," this time, the first football squad. From the 1926 season through the 1946 season, he established an enviable record in this department also, with 118 victories, 38 losses, and 27 ties. Through the years, the most well-remembered season was the 1938 one, in which Mr. Lorden and his team won every game, and attracted nationwide attention. Since the Springfield Republican started choosing all-western Mass. gridsters in 1931, he has led 41 boys to win positions on the first teams. Besides the '38 season, he likes to think of his '44 and '46 teams as two of the finest he has had. When asked if he has any special all-time favorite players, he claims he couldn't pick any be- cause he has had so many fine boys to work with. Tireless and energetic as he is, he took on another job in 1933 as basketball coach, and worked up many good teams through 1933. In '33, the Indians won the Western Mass. Small High Schools Tournament. In 1939, his squad was runner-up for the Western Mass. championship. No doubt, the most important position he has held in the school, was being the teacher of senior American history. The many students who have studied under him in this subject will all agree that through -his guidance, they have attained an extensive knowledge of United States history and government. So, Mr. Lorden, while we regret deeply that you are leaving Turners, we know you are going on to a broader field and we wish you all the success there, which we know so well you deserve.

We'll remember the football rallies And many a club meeting, too, We'll remember those who cheered or fought For the honor of the "white and blue." We'll not say, "Goodby, Turners" We'll just say, "So long" Because the lessons that we've learnt here We're going to take along. Oh, we'll think of you often When times are dark as night, We'll remember that you Taught us how to fight. And whether the lot be ours in life, To be great or small, We've learnt the rules of fair play We know how to carry the ball.

We were very fortunate in that none of our classmates were required to join the ranks of the service. There were 126 students in our class as freshmen, but only 94 graduated as seniors. Naturally, not to be outdone by the upperclassmen, we too participated in scrap drives, clothing drives, bond and stamp rallies, hospital drives or any other movement we deemed patriotic. We were very fortunate indeed to have as our class teacher and advisor, Miss Lindsay, who has been a very sympathetic and understanding friend. Several of the male teachers had volunteered for the service the year before, who I am sure did more than their part to help bring the war to an end. However, in our senior year we were happy to welcome back Mr. Foley and Mr. Richason, but we were very sorry to be unable to welcome Mr. Scheff. As you see, even teachers give their lives that we, the future citizens of America may live and learn. The traditional senior-freshmen dance was a tremendous success. After this dance, we felt that now we really were a part of the student body. We met and made many friends, and learned how to conduct ourselves at our first real social affair. Now we were being treated as young men and women which gave the majority of us a superior air in regard to grade children. Our freshman teams, I am happy to say, excelled in all sports. Much of the credit goes to Mr. Galvin, assisted by Mr. joe Delpha, for their patience and guidance. From that team came most of our varsity football team, including such talented players as Robert "Budda" Allen, Henry "Tootsie" Martin, Edward "Stud" Milkey, Edwin "Jelly" Marzalek, Ramsey "Bebe" Parenteau, Richard "Dick" Clark, Francis "Battler" Guilbeault, and last but not least, Philip "Mitzi" Croteau. I am sure Mr. Lorden will agree that' our class has many talented athletes who will leave their names alongside the other remembered athletes of years gone-by. At the start of our sophomore year, we undertook the task of electing class officers. When the votes were tallied we discovered the class officers were as follows: Bob Allen, President, Ed Milkey, Vice-President, Marilyn Casey, Secretary, Jean Welcome, Treasurer, and jimmy Kelly, Historian. We were ready for the Sophomore Social and were tremendously excited because now, we could display our talent at putting on such a gala affair. Our class officers were in the receiving line beside Mr. 8: Mrs. Wrightson, Mr. Sz Mrs. Burke, Mr. Welch, Miss Politella, and Miss Lindsay. The dance was a total success so we felt justified in feeling proud of ourselves. We were equally proud of some of our classmates who were scrimmaging with the varsity football team. Among them were, Bebe Parenteau, Tommy Matusz, Bob Allen, and Tootsie Martin. At the end of the sophomore year we learned that a true friend and patient teacher, Miss Politella had accepted a position in another school. Miss Politella was well liked and had given us good advice and the basic principles for a happy and successful future. Next September, after we had settled down for our third high school term, we found that there were 99 students enrolled in our class. We looked around us Page Forty-one "TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 v in a superior manner, as all juniors do, and discovered that we had a few new additions to our class. john Dodge from Shelburne Falls, and Lorraine Gallant from Gardner became a part of our student body. When the class elections were held, the outcome was as follows: Bob Allen, Presidentg Dick Clark, Vice-Presi- dentg Marilyn Casey, Secretaryg Jeane Welcome, Treasurer, and jimmy Kelly, Historian. These officers were also elected for the following year. A veteran naval officer and former teacher, Mr. Foley, upon receiving his honorable discharge, came back from the wars to take up his teaching where he had left off four years before. Among veterans also returned to school to complete their education which had been interrupted by the war, was John Bourbeau, a navy veteran, who had spent three years in the South Pacific area, who became a member of our class. Later in the year, junior prize speaking tryouts were held. After much debating and careful decision the following were chosen to participate as prize speakers: john Dodge, june Mann, Marilyn Casey, Ro- berta Judd, Theresa Lobely, Thomas Matusz, john Carroll and Chester Czuj. Every speaker made' an excellent showing while highest honors of first prize went to Marilyn Casey, whose presentation of Joe Kesselring's "Arsenic and Old Lace" was indeed an exceptional performance. Second prize went to Thomas Matusz, in his presentation of "U-2.35" by Norman Cowan, which was a story of the Atomic Bomb, its beginning and destruction wrought by it. Roberta Judd received third prize for her humorous presentation of George Milburn's "Papa Was Foxy." Some of the players on the varsity football team were Henry Hmieleski, Bob Allen, Bebe Parenteau, Ed Milkey, and Henry Martin. They along with Phil Croteau, Dick Clark, Paul Guy and Ed Marzalek witnessed plenty of action during the Hpigskin season." Berths on our baseball team were also held down by Ken Robinson, Phil Croteau, jimmy Kelly, and Red McCormick. As our super talent in conducting former social functions had been recog- nized and respected, we undertook the task of the junior Prom. The Prom was indeed considered one of the most successful and enjoyable Junior Proms in the history of old Turners High. All the details and preparations went smoothly and everyone had a delightful evening. Throughout the dance there were soft lights, slow, sweet music and happy faces. At the end of the evening there were lumps in many throats as the orchestra played "Auld Lang Syne." The decora- tions consisted of fourteen strips of wall paper covering the wood paneling at the back of the gym. The paper was covered with red roses on trellis work which gave the idea of an outdoor scene. At each end of this paper two white columns with vases were attached. Across the bottom a wide strip of white paper with steps painted on it was placed. A silhouette of an old fashioned lady in a hoop skirt and a gentlemen in knee breeches were placed standing on the steps. These life sized figures were painted black and trimmed with the lace of paper doiles. Six smaller figures of old fashioned ladies were made and placed along the railings, three on each side. Festoons of green, red, blue and yellow crepe paper were attached to each post along the sides and along the balcony. Old-fashioned bouquets made by appliqueing paper flowers on hexagonal pieces of cardboard and edging these with lace doiles, were placed on each post. Crepe paper festoons started at each basket and were carried to each side at Page Forty-two 'IO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 both ends of the gymnasium. The baskets were filled with laurel branches and streamers, hung down from each basket. The class numerals of the junior and senior class were placed above the baskets. Back of the orchestra only the wall paper and streamers were used. Entering our senior year we found that many serviceman had returned to school. A few weeks later the senior-freshmen dance was held, which served two purposes. First it served as a means of welcoming the freshmen to our high school, and second as a means of welcoming back to school the boys who had left school and joined some branch of the service. Some of the veterans who came back to complete their senior year were Stanley Banash, Alderic Bourbeau, Edward Bourbeau, Robert C adran, Robert Girard, Ronald LaRoche, john Noga, Robert Sicard, Robert Thomas and Edwin Vlach. Next our football season was a highly successful one as we won 7 and lost 2 and tied 1. Even powerful Everett High, deemed us strong and fast enough to play by challenging us to a game at their stadium. Never before had the Varsity team received such an honor. Even though the team was defeated they came home more experienced and powerful which is proved by the fact that we only lost one game the remainder of the season. Then it was time again to play the annual "Turkey Day" classic, the Thanksgiving Day Game. With excellent passing and teamwork we held on over-confident Greenfield eleven 7-7. Phil Croteau made the only Indian touchdown to render one of his best performances of the year. The entire team except for the position of center was composed of seniors. Senior play was, as expected, a tremendous success. It was a dilhcult play to put on because of the great number of players in the cast, the amount of time needed to change scenes, and the securing of antique furniture so common in Harriet Beecher Stow's era. The name of the three act play was "Harriet" and was written by Florence Ryerson and Colin Clements. If there were an award to be given to the best actor or actress, then it would undoubtedly be given to An- nette C orbiere whose portrayal of Harriet Beecher Stowe was exceptional. Marilyn Casey, who played the part of the impish, younger daughter of Mrs. Stowe also gave a gracious performance. One might correctly remark that Marilyn had the audience in the palm of her hands, as the audience roared at her slightest word or action. The supporting cast all turned in very commendable performances. Florence Luippold as Auntie Zeb, Thomas Matusz, Henry Ward Beecher, june Mann, Catherine Beecher, Annette Corbiere, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Carroll, Calvin Stowe, Thomas Shanahan, William Beecher, john Dodge, Edward Beecher, Marjorie Cade, Mary Beecher Perkins, Robert Burns, Charles Beecher, Robert Lancey, Thomas Beecher, Walter Cislo, James Beecher, Wanda Garanin, Isabelle Beecher, Henry Hmieleski, Dr. Lyman Beecher, Earl Lenois, Mr. Tuttle, Francis Shanahan, Mr. Wycherly, Shirley Rushford, Celes- tine, Wilhelmina Kurtyka, Freddie Stowe as a child.

Both nights were complete sellouts and on the eve of both performances there was only standing room available. The stage managers, and other boys and girls behind the scenes, also handled their tasks with skill and speed. This play was another success in the long line of successful plays directed by Miss Teed.

Between the time the class of '47, entered high school as freshmen and gradu- ated many new, teachers were added to our faculty, Mr. Vinton, Mr. Welsh, Miss Maguire, Miss Dillon, Mr. Prondecki and Miss Crean, and two returned to re- sume their career of teaching, Mr. Foley and Mr. Richason, both from the naval forces. Our class, being an independent but trustworthy body of students has broken old traditions and established new precedents. In our four years of high school we have not only completed our required amount of education, but have also contributed our utmost to any patriotic movements. We have undergone nerve-racking moments wondering if and when our loved one's would return to us and under what conditions, but we have been ever mindful of the duties entrusted to us, the soldiers of the homefront. We extend our deep thanks to Miss Lindsay, our class teacher, for her helpful guidance and patience throughout our four years of high school. We were very fortunate indeed to have such an unselfish, under- standing friend who helped us to "iron" out the rough spots, during our stay. As the class of "47" has been taught the basic fundamentals so necessary for success in the future, we indeed feel that we will make our old Alma Mater, Turners Falls High, proud of us in the years to come. james Kelley, Class Historian Cn Looking Back As freshmen our dreams were simple If we could just make the grade For everything seemed so important And we were a little afraid. Sophomore year gave us courage As into the classrooms we thronged With hopes as high as the eagle For we knew we really belonged. We studied and crammed as juniors, Amusements and fun mixed in No task was too hard to tackle, For there were some honors to win. Seniors we faced Commencement When they take the last roll call Let's take these beautiful pictures And hang them on memory's wall. Phyllis Rosewarne Page Forty-four TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" .

SIGNED Robert Allen, President Richard Clark, Vice-President WIT N ESSES z Dorothy Thomas Wanda Garanin Robert Lancey Henry Martin PageVForty-six TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT' I TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 The Prophecy It all started during the first week in December, 1957, while Howie Roth and Kenny Robinson were deer hunting on Mt. Tom where they chased a deer down into a cave which turned out to be the crater of an extinct volcano. "Litz" Letourneau, the famous explorer, discovered that an underground river led into the ocean. Securing the aid of Edwin Vlach, owner of the great submarine fleet, after increditable adventures, they found a sunken city under the sea. The class of '47 decided to migrate to the city which they called, C mania. The Shanahan and Shanahan "Build 'lim and Wreck 'Em Company" remodeled the city. Five years later reporters from "Life" Magazine made a tour of the city. After getting out of the elevator in the volcano, run by Clyde Whitemanfthey took the subnataxi driven by Flo Wozniak. Budda Allen, mayor of the city, followed by his bodyguard, 'lButch" Lenois, started the tour in the outskirts. First they saw the laboratories of Guilbault and Warren who were perfecting a beauty formula to preserve youth. Pearl was getting desperate in her old age. Out in the back stood the ruins of the Mad Scientist, Bob Lancey's, workshop where Bob was ranting and raving, tearing his hair, before the armed guards, Baldy Cislo and Tootise Brule, came to take him away to the "Home for Assorted Nuts" run by Marjorie Cade, phychiatrist, and Minnierose Clough, surgeon, and their able nurses, Minka Kurtyka and Claire Nadeau. Next door were the greenhouses of Dick Blood, who was experimenting in seaweed products such as shoe shine, vitamin pills, gargle, perfume, fabrics and deep sea spaghetti. In the center of the city, the orange and white banner of the captiol could be seen. Lolly Kaminski and Lorraine Gallant, receptionists, invited the visitors in and Barbara jackson took them on a tour of the coral building. Jeanne Dale, Wanda Garanin, Eileen Desautels and Irene Noga, had broken all speed records with their new typewriters with five hundred words per minute. The mental telepathists, Betty Schatz, Alice Annear and jean Togneri, had by then, dis- carded shorthand. In the orange room they found Miss Lindsay on her throne of honor with her muscle men, Herman Covey and john Cronen, with their fleet of electric eels trained by the famous icthyologist, Perch Zitta. Perch is also head of the police force made up of Battler Guilbeault and his giant squid, Mitize Croteau and his stingu fish and jelly Marszalek and his faithful jellyfish. After they left the capitol, they entered the office of the city paper edited by Bob Burns. On the staff were the famous reporters Alderic Bourbeau, who specialized in stories of the mermaids he met on his diving expeditions and Donald McCormick, sports reporter. "Lupe" Luippold, photographer of the new plantet Amber. jean O'Connell and Phyllis Rosewarne were society reporters. Helen Kurtyka and Henry Hmieleski wrote an "Advice to the Lovelorn Column." Dick Clark, cartoonist, drew the comic strip "Queen of the Amazona," modeled by Dot White. Across the gardens a fashion show was in progress on the wall across the court yard. The show is sponsored by "Hoof" Marvel, head of the Lanky Limbs Model Agency, with her beautiful "Marvelous Models." Dot Thomas, Nancy Kelly, jean Donovan, and Rose Togneri. They were modeling the most up-to- Page Forty-seven "TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 194 date creations in seaweed, coral and fish scales designed by B. Ware and Shirlee Rushford. Flo Marlowe and Milly Markol fashioned new hats featuring seaweed and sponges. At the outdoor theatre, donated by June Mann and her millionaire husband, Horace Huckleberry, John Carroll and Annette Corbiere were starring in "The Great Love." On the other side of the city they saw Tootsie Martin's race track, "You Bet It-We Take It." The manager of the stables, Winnifred Gillette could be seen currying the horses in the corral. Our city really had a wonderful university. At that time Dick Alber and Carolyn Kendrow were giving Mr. Charles Galvin and other land instructors a refresher course in Marine physics, for their learning had become very out-dated. Leonard Berard was then proprietor of the "Cure 'Em or Kill 'Em" drugstore. They saw his prize soda jerk, little Jeanne Welcome, working industriously on sea foam sodas behind the fountain. In the rear booth sat Chet Czuj day after day, playing with his newest invention, the yo-yo. It was made of sea shells and played like a phonograph. This was his first financial success and they were selling like hot cakes. Farther down the street they came to "Jug's Ritz for Homeless Vets" owned and operated by Johnny Banash. John Bourbeau, doorman, rushed to open the door and they were dazzled by the beautiful club. Mutto LaRoche, head waiter, showed them the building. It was all done in green and black with beautiful murals painted on the walls by Kathleen McGurgan and Belle Barnes. The decorating motif was naturally the sea in all moods. As they walked into the lunge, they found Booby Cadran, Robert Sicard, Red Thomas and Zak Bour- beau having a lively game of-"Old Maid." Brud Girard, Johnny's right-hand man and bouncer, stood near the door in case of emergencies. Then Alice Milweski, Margaret Mullins and Dottie Kozik, waitresses, took them to the dining-room where they saw the entertainment. That famous pair of stage and screen vocalists, Marilyn Casey and "Jap" Matusz, sang "The Tuners Blues" by the noted composer, Goldie Luippold. The orchestra, "Bob's Mob," under the direction of that handsome, carefree playboy, Bob Boissy, accompanied them. The band 'nas composed of Walter Carey on the trombone, Roberta Judd on the sax, John Dodge on the drums, Jane Newton, and Teresa Lobley as pianist, The noted French comedian, Monsieur Bebe Parenteau, sang "Alouette" and the vivacious, diseuse, Peggy Equi gave her interpretation of "Down on the Farm." As Eddie Milkey and Paul Guy, gatekeepers, were verry strict about closing the gates at 8:00 sharp, the guests reluctantly left. Just as they left the gates, Jimmy Stewart just squeezed through before they were closed. He had been out fishing on a neighboring island, at least he said he was fishing. Then the reporters for "Life" passed from sight, their tour successful. If ever you are tired of simple life come to C mania for the class of '47 will always have their "welcome" on the mat. Just rent a diving suit and take the elevator. We'll be there. Page Forty-eight IO Bl' SIMILP.

Not a person in the class was idle those few days before the Promg everyone worked hard. At last the great night arrived, and it was a night never to be forgotten by the Class of '47. Upon entering the gym you felt as though you were in the ball room of some beautiful mansion, the gym was decorated in colonial design. At the back of the gym there was an out door scene with a silhouette of an old fashioned lady in hoop skirts and a gentleman standing on the steps. Old fash- ioned bouquets were placed on each post and all around were black silhouetted ladies against a beautiful pink background.

The first performance at the Greenfield Fair was the beginning of their feeling of pride. They were proud the track team had won and without uniforms or prepared music they pranced down the field displaying their joy to the best of their ability. During the football season they appeared at the Drury, Gardner, Athol, and Rosary games at home and travelled to Westfield and Agawam, climaxed the season with one of their finest performances at the "Turkey Day Game" in Greenfield. On November 12, with a new addition of twelve excellent twirlers they attended the "Marine Band Concert" in Springfield, Mass. and heard a mar- velous performance of the "President's Dwn Band." On December 13 came another of the band's endeavors when they pre- sented a formal concert along with the Girls Glee Club, twirlers, soloists from VVest Springfield High School and Montague grade school students. It was a great success in an overcrowded auditorium. On March 8, the band participated in ithe Massachusetts State Tournament and was chosen to play as the guest band at the final tournament game. They were agreeably surprised to be able to sport their smart new eye-catching uni- forms, which are of a royal blue garbadine, with white trimmings. At Christmas time the band presented a varied program of Christmas music at a Christmas Community Sing on Avenue A. The old as well as young jour- neyed downtown to add to the spirit of Christmas time and that old friendly familiar Community Spirit was revived. The band participated in the Festival on May 17, 1947 in West Springfield and took part in the Field Day Exercises at Unity Park. This band has been a source of inspiration at the basketball games, rallies, and during auditorium periods. As a reward for all this hard work, sincere in- terest and extreme loyalty, the band will travel to Boston on june 6, to hear a Boston Symphony Pop Concert.

The handsome trophy pictured at the left is the award given to the winning team each year. Taking a look at the records reminds us of many well-played, evenly-matched playoff games. In 1941, the only freshman team ever to reach the finals was nosed out by a senior team. The freshmen were sparked by the up-and-coming senior team. The freshmen were sparked by the up-and-coming varsity stars, George Bush and "jake" jacobus. The winners had an array of fairly good ball players including Arial, Garbiel, and Coogan. In 1942, the playoffs were again between two talented and evenly matched teams. Both of them were senior teams. Room 21, with a nucleus of ball players, including Captain R. Buckmaster, "Bud" Luippold, and john Drago captured the trophy by defeating Room 3. The losers were led on by Captain W. Kulesa and "Slapper" Togneri. In 1945 the playoffs were again a strictly senior affair. The "Mustangs" with Captain E. Neipp, L. Sojka, and W. Schuhle rolled on victory to claim the trophy. This year Room 23 defeated Room 1. The seniors were well-stocked with ball players including Captain jim Stewart, Paul Guy, and "Lits" Leterneau. The trophy has always been won by a senior squad and that leaves quite a goal for the underclassmen to shoot at.

Page Sixty-six TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 Football On August 26 of last year, the initial grand council was held by the Indians, 51 strong, under the blistering summer sun. The boys, under the able direction of Mr. Lorden and the new assistant coach, Mr. Putman, were put through the routine conditioning exercises and soon felt as if they were in mid-season on form. In the opening game on September 14, the Indians didn't meet with much opposition in taking over Adams, 33-13. Exactly one week later, the boys trav- eled down to Everett to try to break up the much publicized winning streak of the Eastern team, but their efforts were in vain, and Turners couldn't score one touchdown against Everett's 26 points. The Indians stayed on their own hunting grounds for the next few weeks, beating a stubborn little Drury team 13-0 and a week later, taking over Athol, 40-12. The first real threat of getting beaten in Western. Mass. came when the squad hit the road down to Pratt Field, in Springfield, where it had a hard time beating the Tech Tigers by a 20-6 score. After recuperating from the battle royal with the strong and heavy Tigers, the Indians came bouncing back a week later to shut out Gardner by a slim 19-14 margin. This was undoubtedly the best game of the season on the local oval, and both the team and fans will never forget those last minute passes by Gardner which were too close to being completed for comfort. As is usual on the schedule, the next game was with Westfield, and, as usual, Westfield, with its speedboys, Gallo and Solek, put up a hard fight. The boys were really out to win this one, and did it in good style by a 33-12 score. On the next Saturday afternoon, at Agawam, everything looked bright and rosy until the last minutes of the game when the Brownies unleashed a terrific passing attack and before the Indians knew what had happened, the final whistle had blown and Agawam was the victor, 21-20. Next, the Indians met the clean, and courageous, but inexperienced Rosary team and had no trouble in building up a tremendous score of 53-0. The Turkey Day Classic was as usual, a very hard fought, clean encounter. Although the game ended in a 7-7 tie, the boys were satisfied knowing that they did their best, especially in holding back the heavy Greenfield line in those breath-taking goal-line stances. The seniors on the team were Robert Allen, Paul Guy, James Stewart, Thomas Matusz, Henry Martin, Philip Croteau, Edward Milkey, Richard Clark QCO-Captj, Ramsey Parenteau fCo-Capt.j, Francis Guilbault, Ronald LaRoche, Edward Marszalek, Henry Hmieleski, Kenneth Robinson, Francis Shanahan, John Carroll, Thomas Shanahan, and Earl Lenois. 'Through the season Turners won seven games, tied one, and lost one. The Indians tallied 238 points against their opponents 111. lf!

Since our freshman year in High School we have lost two members of the team to the Service. They are Edward Trombley and Robert Lenois. .Xnother member of the team liebe Parenteau, did not come out for Track after his freshman year and a new one, Red Nlcfiormick, joined in his sophomore year to keep the halance of five members of the class of '47 participating in this sport. In the spring of 1946 the team journeyed to Westfield to take part in the animal VVestern hlass. Track Meet. There were representatives of 13 other schools there besides Turners. The day of the meet was the worst in terms of weather, ever witnessed hy the officials. Tootsie Martin, lid hlilkey, and Red Nlcformick were the members of the class of '47 who helped Turners place 4th among 14 schools. Greenfield finished 7th, Our class has had three track coaches. They are Mr. joseph Sheff, Mr. Edwin Prondecki, and the present coach Mr. Richard Putnam. In the Franklin County Track Meet of 1946 four of the members of our class scored 39M points between them, which in itself was enough to beat Green- field, although the real score was 55-33.

Matusz, Milkey The Basketball Team After two years of Hnishing below the 500 mark in percentage, Turners Falls High finally won more games than they lost. Starting off fast with three straight victories Turners bogged down and played even ball the rest of the year. For the first time in six years a Turners Falls team at last downed Holyoke High in the Valley league. In this fastest of High School Basketball Leagues Turners finished third, which is as high as they have ever finished. Turners split even with their rivals from over the mountain, the Greenies taking the Indians into camp by a 39433 score over there and the Powertowners having a 44-32 ad- vantage pn their home court. High scorers for Turners were Co-captain Bebe Parenteau with a season's total of 196 points and Eddie Milkey the Indians' big center with 156 points. Other seniors who helped to make the season a success were Co-captain Ken Robinson, Red McCormick, and Jap Matusz. Pauly Bourdeau, a junior was second high scorer with 159 points. This was Coach Putnam's first year at Turners High and the class of '47 hopes he enjoyed it as much as they have enjoyed working with him.

Mc- ormic Baseball On April 23, Coach Earl Lorden called the first practice session of the season which is to be his last season as baseball coach for Turners Falls. The boys, on the whole, were experienced ball players, and the squad included such veterans as Ken Robinson, "Mitzi" Croteau, l'Red" McCormick, Walter Cislo, and Ramsay Parenteau. The Indians started off with a bang, defeating their first seven opponents before losing their first game to Chicopee. These first seven victories included the Indians' ancient rivals such as Orange, Greenfield, and Northampton. The closest game up to that point was the 1 to 0 victory over the Greenies. This was a pitching duel between "cool, calm, and collected" Ken Robinson, and Greenf1eld's joe Tetrault. The lone run came in the second inning when "Red" McCormick scored on a bunt. The Indians displayed some fine base-running in the Northampton game, in which they stole 5 bases. The speedy base-running accounted for this Valley League victory. On May 24, when Turners again encountered the Orange squad, the Indians rattled out the grand-slam score of 17-2.

Maybe it is to them but not to us girls. To have a basketball thrown in your face, A or somebody "accidentally", mind you, trip you when you have the ball in your hand and then dive on you to get the ball certainly is not boring. The girls al- ways manage to get a bump on the head, a black eye or a bloody nose. It's pos- sible. The boys should know. They play basketball too but they think it is in a rougher way.

Lt. O'Neil is in charge and is making 60 second observations through the periscope. The watch crew are at their stations while the off-watch men are lunging about talking and smoking.

Make all tubes ready!" fCrew members are alerted throughout the ship and report to the Control Room that they are ready. An air of seriousness looms and crisp orders are passed and carried out, though silently. In the back ground, can be heard the steady whine of the electric motorsj Cap'n-"Report any change in bearings, Sound Operator, and keep me informed." Sound Operator-"Aye, Aye, sir!" Cap'n-"Watch the depth, Bill, and keep her at 60 ft." Bill-"Yes, Cap'n!" Cap'n-"Bill, tell the torpedo rooms to set torpedo depth at 15 feet, maximum speed. Reduce propellor speed to K !!"

Well, Merry Christmas, boys, and well done! Bring the ship up to surface and charge batteries. Retire from battle stations and set the regu- lar watch.

CCurtain Closesj The End THE OCGUPANTS There is a house not far away VVhere not a human soul Would want to live a day. The owner was never gay His wife was thin as a pole A miserable couple were they. His hair was straight as hay And as black as a lump of coal An unhappy man, I'd say. From the Lord the poor man did stray And lost to the devil his soul A most wretched man I'd say. His wife with him did stay In this house upon the knole A pitiful thing I'd say. She had hair matted and gray And a face like a burrowing mole She'd seen her better day. With the house they began to decay And death came a welcomed goal To a miserable couple as they On the same day passed away. Bob Lancey Page Seventy-Seven TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 THE ROOM As the curtain rises, we see four persons sitting around a bare table. The room itself is stripped clean of any decoration. There is a door in the middle of the center wall. The people seated at the table consists of a very pretty young girl, a kindly looking middle-aged man, another man probably in his early thirties and sitting a little apart from the group is a squat, heavily built man with a red scar on one side of his face. ' The girl speaks in an urgent tone, "What am I doing here, who are you, where are we?" V The middle-aged man says, "Calm yourself, my child, try to get a grip on yourself." The girl cries, "But I don't want to be calm, Bill will be waiting for me. He won't understand, I must get to him." The man with the scar on his face speaks, "Yea, let's get outa here, I've gota job to do and the sooner I get there the better." The middle-aged man breaks in, "Let's be quiet, nothing will be gained by all this bickering. I don't know any more about the reason that we are here than you do. But if we don't keep our heads we will never find out. Maybe if we tell who we are then perhaps it would give us an explanation of why we are here. Let's begin with the young lady." She speaks, "Well, this seems very silly and like an unnecessary waste of time but seeing as we have to do something-This was the happiest day of my life. I was on my way to be married. Bill has been away in the Army for two years and now we were to be married. I was the happiest girl in the world as we all climbed into the taxi on our way to the church. In just a few minutes Bill and I would be, man and wife. Then, all of a sudden my head felt as if it were split- ting, but it doesn't hurt now and I must get back. to Bill. He'll be worried." The young man speaks, when he hears this, up to this time he had been sit- ting with his head bent. "That's a good one, this was the happiest day of your life! Ha! This was the worst day of mine. Jane and I had been married for two years and now we were going to have a child. A child, they say makes your life complete. Our life was going to be complete. For months we planned for the day when we would have a baby in the house. We were so happy. CF rom his throat came a sound like a dry sobj. The day came when jane had to go to the hospital. The doctor said everything was going "just fine." So for the next few daysl spent every spare minute at the hospital. Then one night a few minutes after I had got home after a visit, an emergency call came. That call was like an ice cold shock. I rushed to the hospital, but I was too late. My wife had died before I could reach her. My whole life was shattered. What have I ever done to de- serve a "rotten" break like this? Nothing else matters anymore, I left the hos- pital and started walking and now I'm here." The scarred-faced man says, "This is all very touchin'. But I've gotta get to Chicago before midnight. Instead of sittin around here gabbin like a bunch of old ladies, let's Hnda way to get outa this joint." The kindly old gentleman, looking a little startled says, "just a minute, your face is very familiar, who are you?" He answers sarcastically, "Quit your kiddin, everybody's heard of me, I'm Marillo." "Marillo," gasps the girl. . ' The young man straightens in his chair. The middle-aged man speaks, "Marillo! Now I know why your face seemed familiar. I was on my way to Wash- ington in a plane, and I'd just started to read the paper. Your picture was on the Page Seventy-ezght 'IO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 first page. Charles Marillo, known as "Scarface" to his underworld pals, was killed tonight in one of the greatest prison breaks in the history of Tennessee. I had just reached this point when I felt a sinking sensation and everything went black." ' "Killed!" cries the girl, "But you can't be. You're here, and you've been talking to us." "Yea," says Marillo, "you're nuts. How could I be dead? I'm here talking to you ain't I? But it does seem kinda funny, the last thing I remember is a blaze of machine gun fire." The middle-aged man says, in a slow voice, "I guess there is the explanation right there. We are all dead." just as his last words are through, a loud voice is heard filling the small room. It is heard very clearly. "Charles Marillo, are you ready?" The people at the table straighten and their heads turn slowly toward the door. It is open and nothing can be seen through it but a yellowish light shining brightly. At this point the curtain falls. The End Peggy Equi Q G G? THOUGHTS OF COMMENCEMENT No more will the halls with our footsteps ring, No more will our voices blend as we sing, Our Alma Mater. No more will the ivied wall Greet us summer, winter, or fall. Since we must leave thee now, We the class of forty-seven say, "Good-bye." But, still in our hearts shall be A memory, a wistful thought of thee, Our Alma Mater. Wanda Garanin 49 G 0 A WAN DERER A wanderer in a lonely place Sees neither friend nor familiar face, He does not know where he may ride Over car-filled highways, by green fields wide, He stops to hear some bird's sweet song, But he cannot meditate here too long. Onward to places far and near, Seeing the familiar, odd or queer, Hearing all life's familiar rhyme, As he goes forward through endless time. Teresa Lobley Page Seventy mne "TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 A LESSON IN MANNERS Characters Laura Stevens Sue Lowell Betty Roads Marie Carson Elaine Bryans The scene is Marie Carson's and Elaine Bryan's bedroom at the college. Sue-You know, Betty, we were all invited to the Social Friday night. That means we can all be together. What are you going to wear? Betty-Mother sent me enough money to buy a new gown. I can't decide what I want. I was going to ask all of you to help me pick one out at the store. Marie-That sounds like fun. I have a new one that I bought for my last dance at home but I became ill and couldn't go. I guess I'll wear that one. Elaine-Most every girl is going, I guess! I wonder if Laura Stevens is going. Sue-Oh, you mean my new roommate! I doubt if she would enjoy going even if she were asked. Betty-Why, Sue, what makes you talk like that? She may have been asked. Maybe she'll surprise us. Sue-Maybe so, if she does she'll probably have a new necklace to wear! Elaine--What do you mean? Sue-This afternoon when I returned to my room, being in a hurry I ran into the bedroom. Laura hid something in her purse and looked at me so strangely I didn't know what to say. My jewelry box was open and I can't find my necklace anywhere! Betty-Susan Lowell! I'm surprised! You know you can't say things like that unless you are sure! Marie-I agree with Betty, Sue. You don't know. Maybe you misplaced it. I wonder what makes Laura act so strangely? She's always alone. I've asked her many times to come down to our room, but she always turns away with some excuse. Sue--You should have her for a roommate. She never speaks or tries to be friendly. I've tried but I guess it's impossible. It seems to me she doesn't want us for friends. Betty-She's still new here. She's probably never been away from home before. After she has time enough to think things over, she will probably be different. Sue-I sure hope so! It's no fun to have a roommate like that. Elaine-If I were you, I'd report my necklace. That was nearly brand new, wasn't it? Sue-Yes, my brother sent it to me for my birthday last week. I don't know what to do. I haven't said anything to the Supervisor yet. I asked Laura about it but she just looked at me with a blank but weird look in her eyes. Marie-Listen, what's that? I just thought I heard someone outside the door! fThe door opens and Laura, dressed for traveling and carrying a suit case, entersj Laura-You're right you heard something. I heard something, too. So this is your school spirit. Maybe I was a little slow at making acquaintances but don't consider yourself flawless. I knew from the day I came here that I wasn't wanted and I'd never fit. Before I leave there are a few items I must make clear. In the first place, I didn't steal your necklace. It was lying on my table when I came in. I noticed it because it was just like the one my brother sent me from France just one month before he was killed. He sent a bracelet with it and I wondered if, by chance, you also had the bracelet to match. When I was looking for it, you came in. I felt terrible. You looked Page Eighty TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 at me as though you didn't want an explanation. I'm sure if you didn't want to accuse me you could look a little more carefully and find your neck- lace on my table where you left it. I won't bore or bother you anymore. I called my father and he is coming for me shortly. I do hope this has taught you a lesson in manners before you get into serious trouble. CDoor shuts. Laura leavesj Sue-Oh dear! What a dreadful mistake I've made! What can I ever do now? Marie-We should have been more helpful. It never occurred to me that someone might need our help and co-operation. Elaine-Let's call her back. I know it will be hard for us after the cruel way we've treated her, but it will make me feel better anyway. fBetty walks to the window and sees the car drive awayj Betty-It's too late to call her back. We'll write her an apology. Let's resolve here and now that the next girl to enter our college will be received properly and made to feel welcome! Sue-I second the motion. All those in favor? Betty, Sue, Marie and Elaine-"Aye!" Pearl Warren G G C9 LITTLE BROOK Here little brook Flowing through the world, Running, running, running like a girl, With the splash, splash of the water, As it hits the stoney bottom. Over waterfalls and under bridges, Never mind the ridges! Through town after town, Dancing like a clown. As it hits shallow water, With the sound of a new quarter. Flowing for days As if in a haze Going somewhere, But nowhere special. Edward Bourbeau ca ra ca STUDYIN G The art of studying hasn't been mastered by many students and I don't think it ever will be. To study one needs absolute silence so that he may con- centrate on his work. Students say that it is possible to study while listening to the radio, it may be but when the student gets in class he doesn't understand what -he had read the night before. Meanwhile the one who had locked himself in his room to study has an excellent recitation ready for class. Thus it is the wise man who studies in a quiet spot. C. Czuj '47 Page Eighty-one TO BE SIMPLE IS TO BE GREAT" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1947 MR. LORDEN-HIS JOKES AND SAYINGS Mr. Lorden's friendly personality is well known and the jokes he scatters liberally about are famous. One of his characteristics of never being at a loss for a quick comeback sent his history class into a roar of laughter one day. He had accidentally dropped a large drawer on the floor with such a crash that everyone was momentarily stunned. As the class came to life and looked its surprise, he said cheerfully, "Must have dropped my watch." Mr. Lorden walked into his classroom at the beginning of a period to see Tommy Shanahan having fun. Mr. Lorden grew solemn and said, "Hereafter, your name is Shenanihanf' Here is one of Mr. Lorden's famous stories of the year of 1938, the year of the big wind and the year of Big Bill Prohovitch. Once, Big Bill was carrying the ball, when he was stopped at the line of scrimmage. It wasn't very often that he was stopped, so he went to the fellow who had blocked him and slapped him on the back. The fellow fell Hat with the wind knocked out of him. The referee penalized Turners 15 yards for unnecessary roughness. Big Bill protested saying that he was only congratulating him on a good block. The clearness of Mr. Lorden's lectures sometimes result from the picturesque language he uses. --His history class remembers better that the U. S. cabinet can only advise the president when he said "they humped up in the air and kicked their heels together half a dozen times and hollered bloody murder but the president did just as he happy well pleased." A. Corbiere NEED A NEW CAR? Have you had trouble trying to buy a new car? Why be irritated! Build your own: it's loads of fun applying your artistic designs and still more fun riding around in it. Who knows? This may land you a good job as an automobile engineer-or a junk dealer! All there is to it is to buy yourself an old car, the most common being a 1931 Chevrolet, preferably without a body and go to work. Build a good frame out of light wood, then hang a couple of doors, any kind will dog put on a roof, add a little paint and presto you have a new car. Now for the tryout. Get your helmet and parachute and above all don't forget to put in the stearing wheel. Ready! Aim! Fire! and we're off down the street, maybe a little shaky and rattley but never the less we're off. At first everyone will stop dead in his tracks and scratch his head but don't worry, everything is following the wheels, we hope, and they will get used to the racket sooner or later. One advantage of this new car is that you won't need a horn as they will no doubt hear you coming for miles away. Many old fashioned people will say that it's dangerous and shouldn't be let on the road, but don't let that bother you, that's what they said when the aeroplane was invented and look at it today. One consolation is that you will probably have the whole road in which to travel as these old fashioned drivers will be scared to death and drive off the road when they see you coming.
