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!

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.

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.

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.

VVith their motorcycle sirens screaming, Marie Stark and Christine Duda, the police escorts, clear the way for the party as they race to meet the luxury liner US. S.

The Captain, Claire Kuninski, together with her first mate, Leland Stevens! and the second mate, Leonard Cadran, are seen standing on the bridge as joe Parzych, the world traveler: Marion Damon, the remarkable missionary and Doris VVelcome, a business woman, arrive on the pier. just at the last minute Lucille Brule, the noted monologist, and Admiral Robert Bourbeau join the greeting committee. At Bell's Hotel, the party is greeted by the proprietor, Ethel, who conducts them to the desk clerk, jean Morse, to register in the hotel guest book. After dining, the party leaves hurriedly for a tour of the Million Dollar City, conducted by Arthur Neipp. head of the advertising committee. The sky-scraper on their right as they leave the hotel is owned by Elizabeth Pleasant who designed the costumes for tonight's "Mardi Gras." Her latest fashions are now being modelled by jean LaChapelle and Shirley Care. Next they approach the "Research Build- ing." .-Xfter entering it. they notice fumes escaping from the laboratory where Bruce Richard, the mad scientist, is experimenting with synthetic coal. Next they pass the office of Bob Lapidus who is testing what he claims is the softest mattress ever invented. It also has an attachment which, when the button is pushed, serves breakfast piping hot. .Ns they leave the building, they drop in on Elvin Bramen who is perfecting his invention of a better mouse trap. Directly across the street we see the library, where Betty McCormick can be seen regis- tering books in the files. Further along is the "Professional Building" which con- tains the offices of Eugene Podlenski, the distinguished banker, Thomas Lowe, the eminent doctor: Norman Desautels, a stock broker, and Robert Maclntyre, the celebrated lawyer. Next the party passes the newly improved Farren Memorial Hospital, where the efficient supervisors, Mary Thistle and Dorothy Swebla are seen strolling on the lawn, which was designed by the well-known landscaper, Charles Maddern. Page Forty-three "KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 948 A A few blocks down the street they observe Clem Bartlett, the able manager of the Turners Falls Sluggits, the only major-league mixed baseball team in the world, putting Loretta Bonnette, Paul Bourdeau, june Wickens, Pat Lyman, Edward Treml, joe Dion and Agnes Bane through their paces. On the opposite side of the baseball park they notice Helen Sojka and Donald LeMoine conducting the play- ground program. Teresa Mann, the principal of the high school, Connie McClary, the super- visor of the English department, Grace Couture, the supervisor of the French department and Audrey Webster, the supervisor of the commercial department, wave to the party as Rolland Paulin, the city's transportation supervisor, leads them back to Richard Cronin's fieet of taxi cabs. Arthur Neipp then points out Paul Mathieu's modern grocery store in front of which Yolanda Czarnecki, the store detective, and Donald Fugere, the floor walker, are standing. Right next door is the 110 story candy store of Bernice Saulnier, who has devised a method for making candy without using any sugar. The museum with Norma Carrignan as its efficient director, is seen on the left as they go by Professor "Bach" joe Gymrek's dramatic academy. Further on they catch sight of Norma Plante, the noted poet, who is talking earnestly with Stanley Smiarowski, the famous meteorologist, on the steps of Harding Stewart's publishing house. As they ride along swiftly toward the outskirts of the city, they see the court- house, where judge Alfred Verrier holds Federal Court: the nursery school, run by Mable Miner, and the "Gorgeous Beauty Shop" which is owned by Shirley Marlowe. Walter Sokoloski, the forest ranger, and Ray Collins, the game warden, are seen strolling along the side of the boulevard as the party proceeds to the beautiful estate of Alice Englehard the richest widow in the world. Beverly Williams, who has revolutionized housekeeping, and her assistants Theresa CT. J., Jarry, the unbeatable morale builder, and Laura Parzych, CBlondie to youj have just finished decorating the inside of the entire mansion. Further along the route, the party visits Dorothy jacobus' worm farm, the first of its kind in the world, and the party is shown around the grounds by Charles Craven, the man- ager. Right in the center of Greenfield, which is now one of the suburbs of Turners Falls, they stop at Donald Baron's dude ranch where they see Bob Bassett, the famous cow-puncher, riding a nervious stallion. While they are crossing the T urners Falls Bridge, which was designed and built by Herbert Escott, the renowned engineer, to span the mighty Connecticut River, they notice Chet Kabaniec running his amphibean swan-boat from the shore into the water amid the shouts of the excited passengers. Two competent nurses, jane Saulnier and Dorothy Kuklewicz, who are a couple of knock-outs themselves, are always on hand in case anyone should faint. just before returning to the city the party stops at Katherine Greene's horse breeding arm, and Vernon Gillette, the trainer, shows them the stables which are occupied by gleaming horses. Page Fortygfour IxNOWLl+lJGli IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1948 Muriel May, the director of the publicity campaign for the "Mardi Gras" then leads the party to Donald Girard's Night Club where they are greeted by Leona Goodrich, the gracious hostess, Shirley Lowe, the well-knowntaster of food: and Shirley Hebert, the dietician. While the party is dining, they gaze at the picturesque murals, which were painted by Anthony Wasileski. Raymond Brozo, the band leaderg his soloist, Alma Pauling Marilou Englehardt and her troup of professional dancers, and Ted Farwell, that "hep" drummer are then introduced by Eugene Brantner, the Master of Ceremonies. After watching the "Mardi Gras" parade, which was lead by the United States Navy Band under the direction of Eugene Gulo, the party splits up. The music lovers go to the city's auditorium where Edward Podlenski, conductor of the Turners Falls Symphony Orchestra has Richard LeMaire the pianist, as soloist on today's program. The sport lovers go to the city's gymnasium where Tommy Pollard, the heavyweight champion of the world is lighting to keep his title.

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 Audrey VVebster. 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- tions. 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 Page Forty-seven "KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1948 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- nates. 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 music. 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 remembered freshmen. 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. Page F arty-eight 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 top honors. 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 Page Forty-nine '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 Champions of the tournament by one point lost in the last seconds of the game. But the boys did come back with a beautiful trophy and miniature basketballs The Intramurals were won this year by Room 21, a senior room. The regulars on the football team were: R. Maclntyre, D. LeMoine, L. Fadran, K. Stotz, N. Desautels. R. Bassett, R. Lapidus, H. Escott, R. Collins. K. Little and R. Bartlett. Raymond Bartlett and Robert Bassett were our co- captains. The regulars on our basketball teams were: R. Bartlett, H. Escott, Dion, E. Treml, P. Bourdeau, D. Paine. H. Stewart and R. Bassett. Herbert Escott was captain of the team. R. Bartlett, H. Escott, j. Dion, E. Treml, P. Bourdeau, D. Paine, H. Stewart, and E. Brantner were the regular seniors on the baseball team. 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. ,sie I Page Fifty OWI.l-IIDGIC IS 'l'Hli lil-IY T0 SITC!-ISS" 'ITRNERS FAXI.l.S HIGH SCHOOL 1948 SENIOR CL GUS Top Row Doris xYl'lt'Ullll', .Klum Pillllill, l,uviI!u Iirulv, ,lmu l.llcQll2lYX'Hk', Shirluy lXlm'Imw 'l'hircI Row Gran- Cuuturc, Nzlrylml Bassett, -lUSP17hi111' Ruslullis, Claim- Kuninski, Xlulrc' Minor, Mario Stark Sn-vmul Row jam- Sgullniur, Malrim- Colmurn, .Xlivc I':llj.1L'lhllI'1I, ja-ssiva Hylamml, ChI'i5lil1K' llucln, ciUllSlilI1l'l' Mcflnry' l,1:w4-I' Row Ywrlumlu QqZ2lI'I1CK'ki, .Xgm-s Banc, Miss 'll-L-ri, Nlbflllil L111l'igllii!l, Mary Thisllv CHEERLEADERS ? if his Smmling Kluriv Culmrn, Htlly f1I'0l'lIlLlW, .Xllclrvy Wm-lmsln-x', I,illl'il'i2l l.XHl.lll Km-1-lilly.: lburulhy Kuklcwilx, Hvlc-n Sojku, .Xlirc liugcllmaml Page Fifiy-nm' 'KNOVl'l.lilDGli IS 'l'HI-I KICY 'l'O Sl'CCliSS" 'ITRNICRS F.Xl.l.S HIGH SCH 1048 .lunior Prom THE JUNIOR PROM The junior Prom of the Vlassof 1948 was held in the High School Gymnasium on Nlay 9, 1947.

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 Renaud. 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. 4 , jig L 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.

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 Hampshire. :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 possible.

X Pnge Sixty KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1948 THE ART CLUB This club is one of the largest and most active of the many here in the high school. 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- hostesses. 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.

There were also singing groups from Shelburne Falls, Leverett, Sunclerlancl, 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.

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 Treml. qs I .ty V .

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.

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.

'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.
