KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY 'l'O SUCCESS" TURNERS
FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1948
It is with much regret that we must say good-bye
To the happy hours we've spent in dear old Turners High.
The knowledge gained and memories dear. 1
That we have shared through many a year
Will give us strength to find our way
Through all that happens, day by day.
.-Ks we go forward to face the world, I'm sure each heart recalls,
The' joys we've shared and friends we've made within your
VVe shall always have you as a lasting friend,
And the lessons you have taught us, we'll cherish to the end
It is impossible to think of the right words to tell
The thoughts that come to mind as we bid Thee farewell.
Tiny slip of ivy,
VVe plant you with the hope
That you will send your roots
Far into the ground:
And grow strong and beautiful
Against the sturdy brick.
Cling to the wall and to life,
Fight the weeds and the cold bravely.
By doing this, teach us
To send our roots deep into knowledge:
.-Xnd teach us to grow strong and beautiful in spirit
As we grow old in years.
Help us to cling to the truth and to upright living,
To fight the weeds of hate and intolerance,
And to emerge from evil
NVith clean hands and brave hearts.
This we ask of you, tiny slip of ivy,
And we hope that you can hold your own
Against nature, here in the midst of other
Tiny slip of ivy, grant our wish.

This Class Won't
VVe, the Class of '48, being in a very weak and feeble condition, having pon-
dered and taken everyone into consideration, mostly ourselves, have decided to
keep our valuables. We aren't able to leave actual things because we have ex-
hausted our faculties studying here during the past four years.
1. To Mr. Wrightson we don't leave a lie detector because we feel that the
undergraduates will be as trustworthy as we weren't during our four years.
2. To Mr. Burke we don't leave a sum of money to be used for new curtains
in the auditorium so that future seniors can't enjoy movies without being bothered
by sun light.
3. VVe don't leave to Miss Clark two cases of champagne, four car loads of
uoisemakers and a wad of bubble gum so she can't celebrate our departure.
4. VVelll well! To Miss Ayer, well--well, we don't leave an unpledged
promise never to use our pet word "well" again.
5. The Class of '48 doesn't leave to Mr. Galvin an indexed book of his
practical jokes so in the future they won't be timed precisely as always.
6. Dicky LeMaire, Ted Farwell, "La" Paulin, Leona Goodrich, Shirley
Marlowe, "Ed" Treml, and Lucille Brule don't leave to Miss Crean a little relief
in study hall Period 5, because they know she still has "Jake" Wyman, Art
Houseman and Henry Duda.
7. To Mr. Graeber we don't leave a Hood light system for his early evening
practice sessions in football.
8. To Miss 'I'eed twhen she isn't busy elsewherej and Mr. Putnam the
students in Room 3 don't leave an automatic absentee pad that will record every-
one who walks in and out of there before 8:00 A. M. This is to make sure they
ean't get the absentee list right. Sure hope it doesn't work.
9. To Miss Reum, we don't leave Myrna Strange behind to keep her com-
pany in the dismal hours.
10. To Mr. VVelch we don't leave a new supply of A-M--"I had a buddy once."
ll. We don't leave a Stanley Steamer equipped with an automatic pilot to
Mr. Putnam so that the undergraduates won't get lessons in reckless driving.
12. Art Neipp, Ed 'lireml and Bob Lapidus don't extend their deepest
sympathies and don't promise to pay for the two weeks hospital rest Miss Maguire
will have to take starting the day after graduation.
13. PeeWee Bonnette doesu't leave her magic touch to open lockers to Babe
Choleva because then Babe by some miracle might get up on the basketball
court on time.
'KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS" 'FURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1948
14. To all the beautiful girls Audrey doesn't leave ,Ioe Dion.
15. "Liz" Pleasant and "Stretch" LeMaire don't leave their elevated shoes
to "Cooky" Cook and Barbara Carrignan.
16. "Don" Girard doesn't leave Mrs. VVhiteman a chalice to make a little
profit with "Tossie" as an employee.
17. Marie'Coburn doesn't leave her scholarship to VVilliams College to any
beautiful girl of Turners High because she is planning to use it herself.
18. "Genie" and Eddie Podlenski don't leave to future students of T. F. H. S.
that live in the "Patch" their car so that they can't have a good excuse for being
late on cold mornings.
19. Paul Bourdeau doesn't leave his basketball technique to Edgar.Mullins
along with a book entitled "How To Wink At The Girls In the Grandstand and
Still Make a Basket."
20. Bull Bassett doesn't leave his "speed" to VVadic Carlisle. Oh! I mean
"speed" in driving class.
21. Tommy Pollard doesn't leave his warm seat in detention every after-
noon to Don Carpenter, that dashing Romeo from the Patch.
22. Esmarelda Sojka and Ermatrude Kuklewicz don't leave their priority on
Richard Podlenski, better known as "Dimples," to Lorraine Campbell, because
they want him themselves.
23. Eddie Treml doesn't leave a book to Mike Byer entitled "How to Gain
Perfection in Basketball in Only 9999, 9f10 easy lessons so Mike won't be able
to bounce a basketball next season.
24. Bob Lapidus doesn't leave his Dick Tracy badge to "AI Capone" Linscott
so he can't play cops and robbers anymore.
VVe hereby won't appoint the junior Class executors as we didn't leave any-
thing. VVe hope you don't enjoy everything we haven't left you.

As they ride along swiftly toward the outskirts of the city, they see the court-

by Mable Miner, and the "Gorgeous Beauty Shop" which is owned by Shirley

KNOWLLIJGE IS THE KEY 'I'O SUCCESS" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1948
142 eager, wide-eyed students entered for the first time the large Turners
Falls High School building. It was the first Wednesday of the month of Septem-
ber in the year 1944. The warm, clean air of the day was filled with the excited
voices of the thronging, expectant pupils. We, as all of the other classes of fresh-
men that have preceded us, wandered about the corridors like helpless lambs lost
in the deep, dark woods.
At the Senior-Freshman Hop we made ourhfirst entrance into the extra-
curricular activities of the Turners Falls High School. It was at this dance that we
caught the Hrst good glimpse of the "high and mighty" seniors.
This year our freshman football team was coached both by Mr. Welch and
Mr. Prondecki. 'lihe regulars of the team were John Stotz, Robert Maclntyre,
Eugene Podlenski, Charles Maddern, Alfred Verrier, C. Murphy, Donald Collins,
Raymond Collins, Chester Plodziere, Donald LeMoine and Robert Bassett.
Many of our boys and girls were represented in the musical organizations
which were to become the backbone of our own clubs. Even in our first year we
can say that almost all of our class belonged to some club or organization.
Another September rolled around and to our astonishment we found that
already we had completed one-fourth of our high school life. As sophomores,
one of the First things we did was to elect our class officers, many of whom still
remain our leaders today. Kenneth Little became our good-humored and well-
liked president. Donald Girard was elected our vice-president, Pat Lyman, our
treasurer and Audrey Webster our class secretary. Richard O'Connell became our
class historian. Later in the year, under the supervision of Miss Clark, our class
teacher, we held our first formal event as a class, the Sophomore Social, which was
a very beautiful and original afifair. Music was by the "Rhythm Makers" and
Christmas decorations were used. In the receiving line were: Mr. Wrightson, Mr.
and Mrs. Burke, sophomore home room teachers, Miss Politella, Miss Little,
Miss Crean and Miss Clark and lastly president Kenneth Little and secretary
Mr. Charles Gloski coached our sophomore team which now showed signs
of becoming a football squad. All of the other students were also noticing the
excellent work accomplished by our class representatives in the different organiza-
Looking back we have discovered that our sophomore year was both the
slowest and most unexciting one of all four school terms. But we later made up
for this rest. I
VVe were soon to find out that our third year was to be very complete and
exciting. For now as juniors our studies became more difficult, our reputation

greater and extra-curricular activities more abundant and more important to our
school life. To start the year off right the class elected the same officers again
except for the office of historian which was now conferred upon Paul Mathieu.
Next on the program was the American Legion oratorical contest. The participant
from our class was Muriel May who proudlycaptured third place honors. After
this contest we began to prepare for tivo of the most important activities in the
Turners Falls High School ---the junior Prom and junior Prize Speaking. After
weeks of hard work and waiting Junior Prize Speaking tryouts were held in which
a high majority of the class participated. After hours of deliberation the judges
finally chose the eight contestants, and a very unusual occurance, eight alter-
The contestants were: Josephine Rastallis, Mary Lou Bassett, jessica Hy-
land, Patricia Lyman, Joseph Gymrek, Kerwin Stotz, William Letourneau and
Eugene Brantner. Eugene Brantner took first place, jessica Hyland, second and
joseph Gymrek. third.
Our Prom was another gala affair. At the far end of the gymnasium was :1
large, realistic wishing-well that seemed to emit waves of happiness. Not even the
chilly weather prevented the gym from becoming filled with both the formally
dressed dancers and the gazing spectators. It was at this dance that we first
worked hand in hand with our class teacher, Miss Clark, in producing this im-
portant event. To add to the success of the dance, Ray Black furnished the
Many of our talented pupils were in the one act plays that were produced
this year by Miss Teed, while an increasing number of our classmates joined other
school clubs and organizations.
Last fall we all returned to high school as seniors. We now realized that we
were on the last lap of our high school career and so we decided to make the most
of it. Again, the first thing we did was to elect the same officers as we had in our
junior year. Then, we held the Senior-Freshman dance welcoming the newcomers,
the freshmen, to our fpardon mej O-U-R high school. We were now able to look
down upon them as our senior predecessors had upon us when we were dimly
The gymnasium was decorated by many bright streamers most of which
were green, white and yellow. To add to the enjoyment of the dance, "The
Rhythm Makers" again furnished the music.

KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1948
Our class under the able direction of Miss Teed produced many splendid one
act plays one of which was put on twice. This play, "The Valiant," was given
both at the high school assembly and on the night of "Open House" when over
seven hundred people visited the high school under peculiar circumstances. Until
a few minutes before the play, electric lights were absent. The visiting parents
walked about the buildings with lighted candles held aloft to guide their way.
Even after all this excitement the cast of the "Valiant" settled down and enter-
tained their audience completely. As you will see in the history of our class luck
walked with us everywhere we went. Next the class presented their senior play,
"Stardust," by Walter Kerr. Again a majority of the class participated at the
tryouts. After overcoming many difficulties we finally presented the play, a week
later than most presentations of Turners Falls High School senior plays. Many
members of the cast became sick but the openings were filled by capable sub-
stitutes. The auditorium was completely iilled both nights. Special credit should
be given to the entire cast and competent backstage crew for putting on such a
splendid and successful comedy as "Stardust" The leading male role was per-
formed by Joseph Gymrek, the female role by jessica Hyland. Each and every
member of the cast fulfilled his duty perfectly.
Again a class member placed in the American Legion oratorical contest'
Alfred Verrier placed second among a group of capable debaters. Paul Mathieu
was the other senior contestant.
Many new features have been developed during our last year in high school.
A Franklin County Music Festival was held in the Turners Falls High Auditorium
and grounds on a Saturday in early May. Everybody agrees that the festival was a
success as it was inspiring to see and contact so many pupils from other schools.
Later in May the band and the girls' and boys' glee clubs went to the VVestern
Massachusetts Music Festival. The musical organizations came home withimany
Another addition to high school tradition is the "Musical Symbols of '48"
an all boys' triple quartet' They specialized in barbershop harmony. Resembling
that of the quartet is the all girl septet, which specialized in soft, emotional music.
Special credit must go to Miss Argy for directing such successful musical organ-
izations. To Mr. Weiner, who has built instrumental organizations into the best
in the area, goes three cheers from the entire senior class.
Late in May the student body put on the "Varieties of '48." The auditorium
was nearly filled to capacity both nights despite terrible weather. Another new
'KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOI 1048
feature to the show besides the "Symbols" and the "Septet" was the freshman
"Tumblerettes" who specialized in actions performed by clowns. The entire show
met the complete approval of the audience.
This year our record in sports thus far, has not been exceptional, but neither
has it been anything to be ashamed of.lVIr. Graeber, our new coach, has worked
hard in teaching his ways to the eager athletes. In basketball, we did go down to
the Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts. We missed being the

R. Bartlett, H. Escott, j. Dion, E. Treml, P. Bourdeau, D. Paine, H. Stewart,

Our class now consisting of only one hundred students. has accomplished
much, done many new and different things and has a history that we are proud to
have and to remember forever. Our future is dim and uncertain, but if we con-
tinue in the paths that we have taken through our high school life I am sure that
they will lead us to the top where peace, health, and all the other essentials of a
good life prevail.

SCHOOL SAVINGS PLAN
Something new has been added to the Turners Falls High School this hectic
year of 1947-1948. That something is a school saving plan under which each
pupil, with the consent of his parents, may open a savings account at the Croker
Savings Bank, through the school.
Each Tuesday morning found junior and senior girls from Miss Little's
bookkeeping class busy in the various home rooms recording deposits in the pass-
books for the students. The office girls who did the group recording were Agnes
Bane and Valda jillette. Miss Little appointed head cashiers and assistants from
the senior group as follows: Audrey Webster, jane Saulnier, Mabel Miner, Doris
Welcome, Mary Jenks, Shirley Marlowe, Lucille Brule, Alice Engelhard, jean
Morse, Lauretta Bonnette, Shirley Care, Dorothy Swelha, Shirley Hebert, Flor-
ence McCormick, Claire Kuninski, Elizabeth Pleasant, Marie Stark, Jean La-
Chapelle, Alma Paulin, and Christine Duda. The cashiers from the junior class
included joan Welch, Helen Sennott, Annette Engerman, and Goldie Cohen.
The substitutes were Gloria Banash, jean Strange, Ulaberl Palmer, Bernice
Saulnier, ,Ioan VVojtasiewicz, Eleanor Koblenski, Lorraine Christian and Pauline
Bank day was started in October, 1947 and continued successfully through
May, 1948. I say successfully because the deposits in the high school alone equalecl
853100 and together with the grammar school totaled 39000. This is truly a remark-
able figure for the number of students in the schools. '
The class of '48 has begun another activity in which Turners High will
become a leader.
Our thanks to Miss Little for her excellent guidance and leadership.

COMMUNITY SERVICE CLUB
During the war, away back when we were freshmen, this club which was
then known as the "War Service Club," was the most active group in school.
It sponsored clothes drives, fat and soap drives and almost everything else that a
country in time of war could need.
Now, during peacetime, the girls are still kept busy, and find that their work
in this club not only helps others to be happy, but it also makes the girls feel
proud to be of help.
At Christmas time, they help decorate the Manger, and pass out carol books
for the community singing.
They also collect for the Red Cross, and in the past few years have canvasseil
the whole town.
VVhether in times of war or peace this active group of girls certainly do a
commendable job in aiding their community. I

After rehearsing for seven long weeks with Miss Teed the Flass of 1948
presented its first nigl1t's performance of the animal senior play before an over-
capacity house. The name was "Stardust," a comedy in 3 acts -'the time: the
present synopsis, and the place: the combined office and studio of the Academy of
Dramatic and Allied .-Xrts attached to a small university somewhere in New
:Xs the curtain goes up, Marian Phipps, C-Iosephine Rastallisj secretary to
Mr. Bach, Cjoseph Gymrekj head of the department, enters, and after posing in
the position of a near-by statue, sits down at her desk. Next, some students who
are studying art, john Redman, tNorman Desautelsj and Cynthia Keene Cslane
Saulnierj enter, and are followed by Raimund Brown, tDonald Girardj and Mavis
Moriarity Clithel Belly The above are engaged in conversation concerning the
arrival of a visiting actress, Miss Prudence Mason tjessica Hylandj when the
three young girls, Miss Freeman K.-Xgnes Banej, Miss Robinson, CNorma Plantel,
and Miss jones tShirley Marlowej hound into the office. Tad Voorhis, tRichard
Lt-Mairej an artist and Stella Brahms, CGrace Couturej a 'suffering artiste,"
and Phil Ford, Cl-Iugene Brantnerj the student designer enter in swift succession.
.X gruesome chorus composed of Fynthia Keene, Mavis Moriarity, the three
misses, and Stella Brahms and directed by Tad Voorhis swings into action, and
is highlighted by the arrival on the scene of janet Ross, CMarilou Englehardj
a student with whom Phil Ford is in love. Mr. Bach comes in and sends all of his
students out, fearing that their excitement on her arrival will impress Miss Mason
as being childish. .-X jerry Flanagan, fLeonard Cadranj news reporter from
Hollywood comes to the school hoping to sign for the part of "Christina" Miss
Mason, the only normal person present, who has arrived with her fiance, Mr.
Arthur Scott Clierwin Stotzj. Frightened at the sophisticated attitude of the
students she expected to be so "down to earth," Miss Mason phones her closest
friend, Claire Carter CH:-len Sojkaj, who arrives later to save her from such per-
sons. To complicate the situation the Dean of VVomen tTherese Mannj fmds Phil
Ford and Miss Mason together and demands that the frenzied Mr. Bach close the
show the students are about to present. To save her reputation, and the show,
Prudence says she is going to marry Arthur Scott.
Somehow this hurdle is passed to the amazement of the audience, and Miss
Mason is acting in the play when the students disgrace her performance by Walk-
ing and talking her lines. Finally, this action is remedied, with the utterly de-
feated Mr. Bach and students apologizing to Miss Mason.
For some time no one does succeed in securing the contract for "Christina"
offered by jerry to both Miss Mason and Miss Ross, but the third act ends hap-
pily as Prudence decides to complete the performance and then go on to Holly-
wood and to Paul Kenyon, whom she should have married in the first place, and
saved herself this hectic interlude with such "artists," The curtain closes as Claire
farter promises herself always to be a bodyguard to Prudence.
The heartfelt appreciation of the Class of 1048 goes to Miss Alice Teed, our
director and dear friend, whose splendid training made such a performance

THE ART CLUB
This club is one of the largest and most active of the many here in the high
Were we to visit them during one of their meetings, we should see some stu-
dents dabbling in oils, others sketching a still life or landscape and still others
busily engaged in work for various school activities.
At their first meeting of the year, the Art Club elected David Dodge, presi-
dent: Joseph Krol, treasurer, and Anthony VVasileski, secretary. They decided
to have a Halloween Dance to raise money for their trip to Boston.
In November, members sold chances on a large Thanksgiving basket made
up of contributions from the club and their friends.
The large Della Robbia wreath used in the annual Christmas Show was
made by members of the Art Club.
During the later part of the year much time was spent creating pictures of
typical New England scenes. These pictures were sent to foreign countries by
the Red Cross to show others a little of our .-Xmerican way of life. It was hoped
these pictures might strengthen our bonds of friendship and understanding with
these countries. i
In May the club journeyed to Boston on its annual trip to various museums.
The Boston Public Library, the llflusetnn of Fine Arts and the Isabel Gardener
Museum were visited.
The decorations for the H1948 Varieties Show" were designed by David Dodge
and constructed by :Xrt Club members. i
Because the activities of this club extend from September through june, and
because each event of the school year needs in some way the assistance of this
group, we feel that it is truly one of our most active organizations.
THE COMMERCIAL CLUB
Early last fall, the Commercial Club elected Claire liuninski, president:
Shirley Marlowe, vice president: Lauretta Bonnette, secretaryg and Shirley
Care, treasurer. '
On December 13, the Club made their first trip to Forbes and Wallace in
Springfield. They were given a brief talk on cycle billing and personal shopping.
A personnal shopper takes orders by telephone receiving all the necessary informa-
tion from the customer then, proceeds to buy, wrap and send or deliver free of
charge within the Springfield area. We were left to roam the shopping district to
observe the selling points and window displays.
Soon after Bank Day was started in the high school, the girls were the guest
of lVIr. Gunn, President of the Crocker Institution for Savings. Mr. Blood and
Miss Hines explained the complete procedure, which all school savings account
go through. They were shown how to operate the banking machines.
The seniors were the guest of junior members at our annual Valentine's party
on February 10. During that same week February 12, ten seniors served tea to
the faculty in the teacher's room. This taught the girls to be receptionists and co-
On March 23, the group visited the Bell Telephone Company in Greenfield.
Their Open House gave the girls a chance to see the inside of the telephone build-
ing and to observe how the system works.
A glimpse at the different phases of the business world, creates more interest
in the students' classwork. It also gives them some idea of the work that they
may like to do.

get this group and that group settlecl, as goocl hostesses shoulcl clo. This was th.-
lirst Franklin Founty hlusic lfestival, and everyone was trying to make it a suc-
cess. This was a festival that gave no prizes or ratings. It's aim was to gather to-
gether the stuclents from various schools in lfranlclin Vounty so they eoulcl hear

There were five bancls participating, one from .-Xrms .-Xcaclemy, the elemen-
tary anal high school bancls from Orange ancl the grammar school and high school
bancls from Turners lfalls.

South Ueerfielcl, Fharlemont, Greenfield ancl Turners lfalls. In all, there were
approximately 850 students participating.
The program startecl promptly at 9:00 A. N. ancl ran off very smoothly,
with each group going on stage for their 7 minute audition on time. The program
was completerl at 12:30 ancl owing to the chilly weather outsicle, everyone triecl
to eat his lunch, brought from home, in our cafeteria.
.Xt I :45 all the groups gathererl at Unity Park for the paracle back up to the
high school where a masserl chorus anal massecl bancls gave three selections each be-
fore the game. Following this, all the participants of the festival remainecl to

The Football Team
About two weeks before the opening of school in the fall of l947l the Indians
of Turners High were looking toward to another football season. This year every-
thing was to be new, a new system, a new coach and a new team with the excep-
tion of one regular from the '46 team. The boys met their new coach, Mr. Graeber,
in late August and the hard work began. The first game was at Adams and the
fans, papers. and everybody were astonished when the Indians over-powered the
Adams' eleven and rolled up a 25-0 victory. The team had shown that they too
could use the popular T formation. In their next game the blue and white trav-
eled east to take on Everett. Turners put up a game battle against the much
larger and more experienced Everett team but were overcome by a 41-0 score.
After two weeks of recovery and hard work the Indians traveled to Drury
and came home victorious 7-0 after a hard fought game. On Columbus Day the
Turners team pushed Athol all over the field and yet they only beat them by a
12-0 score. The Indians were then beaten three straight times, first by Tech
19-7, then by Gardner 13-0 and then by the Champion Westfield team 15-0.
The team then returned to the victory column by defeating a stubborn Holyoke
Catholic team by a score of 13-0. This game was played in rain and mud. The
Indians played their best game of the season against Agawam. The big, experi-
enced Brownies came to the Turners Falls gridiron boasting an undefeated untied
record. The Turners boys beat the Agawam eleven at their own passing game
and came out with a 12-12 tie.
Un Thanksgiving morning the boys in blue and white were beaten 20-0 by
the Greed Wave from across the river. The game was very disappointing to the
fans and the players. Although Turners won four, lost five and tied one, Mr. Grae-
ber and the boys had done better than any of the fans of papers had predicted.
The Indians scored 76 points to 120 points by their opponents. The Indians found
it hard to change their form of attack from the single wing to the T formation.
The seniors on the team were Co-Capt. Robert Bassett, Co-Capt. Raymond
Bartlett, Herbert Escott, Raymond Collins, joseph Dion, Robert Maclntyre,
Kenneth Little, Norman Desautels, Leonard Cadran, Robert Lapidus, Kerwin
Stotz, john Stotz, Alfred Verrier, Eugene Podlenski and the manager Edward

During the 1947-1948 season Turners Falls had the most successful basket-
ball team since 1944 when Turners won the tournament at -the University of
Massachusetts. Our team, under the coaching of Mr. Putnam, compiled a total
of sixteen victories as compared to eight losses. Besides ending in third place in
the Valley League the Indians were invited to play in the Assumption Invitation
Tournament at VVorcester Where they lost a heartbreaker to St. Louis High
School of VVebster in the final round by a 42Y4l score.
In the semi-final round a tight ball game was played with Assumption High
of Wlorcester which wasn't decided till the last six seconds of the game when "joe"
Dion made a sensational interception and basket to lead Turners to 42-41 victory.
They felt the bitter defeat in the final game by the same margin where they fell
before a strong St. Louis ball club.
The Indians received silver basketballs and a beautiful gold trophy as
awards. They also had the honor of having Paul Bourdeau and Clem Bartlett
picked for the tournament All-Star team. the former on the first team and the
latter on the secondteam. Paul Bourdeau received an additional basketball for
his five achievements on the basketball court.
During the regular season play the Indians were defeated twice by Holyoke,
Vllestfield and liasthampton but rewarded themselves by defeating their arch-
rival Greenfield twice. Their only other defeat came from a strong Fitchburg
aggregation. They defeated the three other Valley League quintets besides South
Deerfield. Arms and Athol. '

just three days after the basketball season was over, Mr. Graeber had the
battery candidates working out in the gym. It was a couple of weeks before the
boys could go out on the field because of the snow which was covering it. The
team played their first game just three weeks after outside practice started. The
game was at home with Adams and the Indians won by a score of 9-0. In their
next two games the 'l'urners boys were defeated by Athol, 4-2, and fhicopee 8-0.
In their fourth straight home game the Indians took Greenfield by a score of
I0-2. After a long lay-off because of rain the Indians traveled to Northampton
and edged out the Hampers 0 -7. After this game the rain came again and the
unplayed games on the schedule began to pile up. The team had played only five
games while they should have played ten. VVhen the sun finally broke through,
the Indians traveled to Vhicopee and Holyoke and were beaten I2-4 and 5-3
respectively. The boys from Turners then returned home only to be beaten by
Hamp 8 --Pf 5. In the next game 'l'urners broke their losing streak by defeating
Orange 7-6 but were then slaughtered I5-3 by Greenfield in the annual Memorial
Day game. Since the Greenfield game the Indians have upset Holyoke 10-4 and
defeated Orange 0 -5. XXIIIII' three games remaining the record is 6 victories against
6 defeats. 'l'he seniors on the team are joe Dion, Paul Bourdeau, I-Ierbie Iiscott,

THE GIRLS' TUMBLING TEAM
Hard work and no play make our team what it is. The results are shown at
the .Xnnual Variety Show, and lfield Day exercises. The team was honored with
an invitation to perform at the University of Massachusetts at the Small School
'llournament in 1947. 'llhey always look well in their blue and white uniforms
paratling in a snappy strut.
THE SKI TEAM
In the winter of 1947 and 48 something new was added in the line of sports
at 'l'urners High. A ski team was formed by Ted Farwell, his brother Norm, jim
Nadeau, john Samariski and Billy Burnham. The boys practiced Wherever they
could lintl a slope suitable to ski on. The team entered a ski meet at Pittsfield
on january 30 and 31. Although they did not win the meet they made good their
appearance as Ted Farwell took first place and Billy Burnham took third place
in the jumping. The other boys entered the other various events such as cross-
eountry, downhill and the slalom races. It was the first year that Turners had
ever had a ski team and we hope it will not be the last.

"OUR FOUR YEARS"
Hurray! VVe're freshmen, and so grown upl
VVe've opportunity in a golden cup.
First rally, first class and football game:
VVhich to the sophomores are really quite tame.
"If we were only sophomores," we very often dream
"VVe'Cl show them, wc're much bigger than we seem."
Hurray! We're sophomores and so much older,
But the teachers think we've grown a little bolder.
VVe look upon "underclassmen" and each other poke,
They seem so helpless, it's really quite a joke.
But the juniors actually resent us,
"Ah! To be a junior, how that would content us."
Hurrayl Vl'e're juniors, and have seen three classes go,
My, how the years go by, oh, so awfully slow.
At last comes our chance for a "try" at prize speaking,
But to be in senior play, is the goal we're seeking.
"Ahl To be a senior, is all we're asking for,
And then we'd be content, and never ask for more."
Hurrayl W'e're SEN IORS, and people of the world,
On a merry-go-round, we seem to've been hurled.
"VVhere did those four years go?" we say,
For it's time to leave, much to our dismay.
And now our high school days are o'er,
But fond memories will live forever more.
