The students hailed from all parts and sections of Turners Falls, Gill, Millers Falls and Montague. Overfiowing with bewilder- ment and timidness, we, freshmen, were about to begin the four best years of our lives. We weren't afraid, but curiosity swept over us as we wondered what was expected of us. Fortunately, our freshman year was a quiet year, for we had much to learn. First we had to become accustomed to the many rooms and corridors so that we should not get lost. We were on our own now, as young men and women, seeking a highway which lead into the future. The annual senior-freshmen dance, introducing us to our classmates and wel- coming us as a part of the student body, was a festive affair. VVe met many new friends and felt more at ease after taking part in the first social event of the year. Our freshmen football team, The Winless Wonders as we called ourselves, excelled in spirit and sportsmanship, if not in scoring. Mr. John Welch assisted by Emil Paulin, capably guided our team with patience and understanding. It was said by Mr. Welch, and Mr. Paulin that our freshmen team was the first team ever to use "smoke signals." Our Winless Wonders were made up of muscu- lar recruits such as: Paul Vivier, "Wadic" Carlisle, "Turkey" Emond, James Viens, "Hippo" Mullins, "Rujay" Parenteau, Walter Cygan, "Red" Crouse, Donald Wyman, "Monty" Duda, Larry Cadran, and William Connors. Anyone could see them scrimmaging on sunny September afternoons, always using their favorite play, "Pile drive to the right, on three, now to the left, on three." VVe played two games with Greenfield and two with Deerfield. Our basket-ball team profited by Mr. Foley's capable instructions and sug- gestions, playing Northampton, Mt. Hermon, Deerfield, and Greenfield all twice. The team consisted of Paul Vivier, Donny Wyman, Henry Mlecko, Walter Cygan, Roger Parenteau, William Connor, Richard McClary, Edgar Mullins, Walter Carlisle, Arthur Housman, and Carl Kurtgis. They displayed their talent, and looked forward to next year when they could carry on what they left behind them this season. In baseball we beat Eaglebrook. . Another September rolled along and we again saw ourselves strolling up the walk and entering the high school. As sophomores, our first task was to elect our class ofiicers. When the votes were counted, we learned that our class ofiicers were as follows: Edgar Mullins, Presidentg Kenneth Clark, Vice Presidentg Joan Couture, Secretaryg Jane Allen, Treasurerg and Gloria Banash, Historian. Miss Crean became our class teacher. Our sophomore social was very successful and we were proud that our first contribution to the years' events was a success, indeed. This year fiew by faster than we imagined and along about June when final exams were over we started another vacation. Page Tlnrty-seven WE HOLD THE FUTURE" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1949 Our vacation went by just as fast as our school year, and there We were back again, but this year as upper classmen and juniors. We were happy to welcome another boy to our class this year. Bob Litchfield, who was well-liked and well-known by all as a friend and fellow classmate. Again, as the year before, We voted for our class ofiicers and the same students were selected to represent our class: Edgar Mullins, President, Ken Clark, Vice President, Joan Couture, Secretary, Jane Allen, Treasurer, and Gloria Banash, Historian. As juniors, we welcomed to our faculty, Mr. Garvin Graeber, athletic coach and history teacher. Under his sympathetic and understanding guidance, we not only learned the facts of our government and history, but of sportsmanship and school spirit as well. As the months went by, we carefully studied and gained the knowledge and education we shall use in the years to come. Later in the year, Junior Prize Speaking tryouts were held, and the following were chosen to participate in the contest, after careful deliberation, Laverne Langille, Edgar Mullins, Anne Farnsworth, David Dodge, Nancy Blood, Ken- neth Clark, Jane Allen, and Arthur Housman. All our prize speakers did an ex- ceptionally good job and the highest honors were given to Nancy Blood, first,.for her presentation of "You Can't Go Back" by Francis W. Quinlan. Second prize went to David Dodge for his presentation of Fitz-Simon's "Four on a Heath." Third prize went to Anne Farnsworth for her presentation of "Dickens the Menace" by Ruth McKinney. Our prize speaking contest was a great success under the capable instruction of our dramatic coach, Miss Alice Teed. Our Junior Prom, a gala affair, was held on May 14, 1949 in the high school gym. The motif of the decorations was "Fiesta," the central figure being a danc- ing silhouette of a ballerina girl, highlighted against a large moon. This figure was placed in back of the receiving line. Florist's palms were used here, whilejust in back of the orchestra, a large moon was placed. Multi-colored festoons of paper streamers were strung along the rails, both sides and balcony, while a large blue flower was used on each post. The basketball backboards were decorated with the same paper and fiowers and the two classes ,initials "48" and "49" were used. Our Prom was a tremendous success and everyone had a wonderful time. Entering our senior year we began to feel the days and the months go by and we felt that each and everyone of us had begun to pave the right way into the future. Now more than ever our decisions counted on seeing through the finish of our highway. Again this year, as the year before, we elected our class officers. The same stu- dents were voted in as the year before. Next, we welcomed the freshmen at our senior-freshmen dance. We hoped they felt as happy and as contented as we did. Our football season was a grand one, and although we lost a few games, we never lost our school spirit and fine sportsmanship. The senior girls on our girls basketball team were: Julianna Cholova, Betty Earley, Joan Couture, and Bar- Page Tlnrty aghf WE HOLD PHE FUTURE" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1949 bara Richard. These girls kept up their school spirit also, by playing fair games, whether they lost or won. Then, came our senior play, "I Remember Mama." With eighty seniors trying out for parts, competition was keen. The cast consisted of the following students. Katrin, Nancy Blood, Mama, Barbara Slate, Papa, Edgar Mullins, Dagmar, Gloria Banash, Christine, Joanne VVojtasiewcz, Nels, Philip Stark, Mr. Hyde, Leon Momoney, Aunt Trina, Goldie Cohen, Aunt Jenny, Helen Sennott, Aunt Sigrid, Joan Welsh, Jessie, Valda Jillette, Dr. Johnson, David Dodge, Arne, Charles Bourbeau and Richard Annear, A Nurse, Carolyn Donovan, Another Nurse, Anne Farnsworth, Soda Clerk, Henry Malek, Madeline, Betty Greenlaw, Dorothy, Joan Couture, Florence Dana Moorehead, Barbara Richard, Bellboy, Kenneth Clark, Scrub Woman, Bernice DeGraffe, Doctor in White, William Spat, and Orderly, Raymond Chappell. The play was a huge success with a sellout both nights. The credit goes to Miss Alice Teed, director, and to the whole cast for their hard work and cooperation. We must not forget to give much credit to all the managers and committees for doing their parts to help make our senior play a success. During our four years of high school, we as a student body, learned to trust, have faith and self-confidence in ourselves, and to contribute slightly toward making our world a better world in the years to come. As a student body, gradu- ating eighty-eight in number, we wish to extend our deepest gratitude especially to Miss Margaret Crean, our class advisor, who has with her faithful sympathetic patience and understanding, guided us and lead us like little helpless lambs through four happy years of school. We also wish to express our sincere thanks to all of the faculty for their guidance in helping us to prepare for the future, and to remain unforgettable Cwe hopej to our Alma Mater as the class of "49".

Cl949j Edgar Mullins, President Kenneth Clark, Vive-president WITTNESSES: Barbara Slate Betty Greenlaw Raymond Watroba Page Forty-two WE HOLD THE FUTURE" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1949 The Prophecy Town of Montague June 23, 1949 It is the year 1949 . . . The year of the Atlantic Pact and Jet Propulsion. It is the year in which future graduates will find out what happened to t e class of '49 of the Turners Falls High School. Why does a prophecy deal with the past, you ask? Listen carefully, and you will learn. On the night of graduation Leon Momaney suddenly went mad. Vowing vengeance on his fellow classmates, he hid himself away from the world. After years of experiments and mad ravings, he perfected a time machine that would send all the students of the class of '49 back a hundred years. In spite of this sad and cruel event, we, thelclass of forty-nine, promise that our reunion would be the gayest and most hilarious one that any class had ever had. With unanimous decision, and with the. approval of Mistress Crean, our class advisor, it has been agreed to have the reunion at the Montague Inn. Innkeeper Edgar Mullins has spent many weeks preparing for the great event. He ordered his hunters, Charlie Bourbeau and Monty Duda to kill the largest deer in the forest. His cooks, Lyn Donovan and Shirley George, were making such dishes of arsenic custard and strychnine souflie, to tempt the palates of their honored guests. Our innkeeper hired the greatest band in the land to furnish music for our leasure. In the band, fiddlers Bob Call, Irene Paulin, and Stanley Podlenski are led by Jane Allen. Jane had an im ortant engagement for the day, but when re- quested specially for the class of liirty-nine, she cancelled her previous engage- ment that we might all have her company and band. Elaine Ward, and Joan Bartley, talented s ueeze-box players, have consented to accompany the fiddlers. At the banjo will qbe Nancy Blood, Lorraine Nadeau and Winny Wentworth, assisted by Jeanie Pierce at the piano. At last the long-awaited day has come. Soon, the guests will arrive, and the entertainment will begin. The doors are thrown open and the guests begin to a pear. At the hitching post, Eddie Remillard, and Dickie Annear are seen tying tfiieir famous mounts, Beedle Bomb, and Jet Pilot. Waitresses Betty Earley, Rose Golec, Lorraine Guilbault, Marian Kendrow' Anne O'Hara, and Doris Croteau are making last minute checks of their tables, while Robert Tibbets and Muckles McAllister are setting up their tintype equip- ment. Arriving on a bicycle built for four, which was designed by Henry Malek' are Buell Bassett, Stanley Sobolewski, Joan Lanfair, and Shirley Fortin. Oh' wait a minute . . . Who's that on the handle bars? Why, it's Joanne Wojta- siewicz. Where's Herbie? There is Mr. Herb Davis himself bringing up the rear in his horse and buggy. Seated in the back of the buggy are Joan Couture and Annette Engerman. Hostess Helen Sennot greets them, and directs them into the coatrooms. There we hear Lorraine Christian, Alice Cota, Red Crouse, and Theresa Whiteman gossiping about the sudden success of our former classmate Billy Spat who has just been elected president of . . . the Seneca Convention for "Woman's Rights."-Then the subject changes to the current heart interest of our favorite Don Juan, Donald Wyman. Last but not least, arriving in Bob Litchfield's famous "Surry with the Page Forty-three "WE HOLD THE FUTURE" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1949 Fringe on Top" are Paulie Vivier and Lucille Waldron, Ray Chappell and Ioani Welsh, and Betty Greenlaw and Ray Watroba. Finally, everyone has arrived, and the entertainment begins with a song by Adella, "The Voice," Chartier. Roars of laughter are heard as clowns, Barb Slate and Tossie Milonas, begin their antics. The act was interrupted suddenly by the breathless arrival of Larry "Mercury" Cadran crying "Gold in California." Out run prospectors, Wadic Carlisle, Billy Connor, and Cyg Cygan. Followed by the rest of the class, who gaze a little longingly at them, they mount their horses and start off for the land of sunshine. Adjourning to the lawn, the group watch a thrilling game of croquet played by those brawny athletes, Carl Kurtgis, Jean Emond, and Don Tooley. They are urged on by cheerleaders Jean Lemerlin, Pauline Renaud, and Elinor Koblinski. Babe Choleva and Jean Strange are warming up for the tennis Finals which will be held later in the after- noon. Shouts of "Ice cold lemonade" can be heard from Archie McCleary and Spike Mleczko, who have a booth under a shady tree. Rujay Parenteau and Phil Stark havejust finished their Fifteenth glass, and assure us it is good. Caller Billy Whiteman rounds up a group for square dancing, including Butch Clark, Sylvia Cossett, Ray Wasilewski, and Pauline Waidlich. All those who don't join in the dances stand at the sidelines giving instructions. The new spring floor at the Inn is surely having a work-out today! David Dodge can be seen meandering through the crowd cutting silhouettes. Among his sitters are Gloria Banash, Goldie Cohen, and Julia Dwyer. At the request of the guests, an amateur program will be held immediately following the dancing. Julia Kozloski, who has just learned a new dance routine tries to teach Artie Houseman with the able assistance of her comrade, Ulaberl Palmer. Bernice DeGraffe has just learned how to play the piano, so the entire group is urged to sing "Oh, Susannah." Then, strains of "ln the Good Old Summer- time" are heard, and that seems to remind some of the people of the summer following graduation. Bits of "Did you kids come out on the rabbit hunt," or "Did you go to the husking bee" can be heard. Ellen Dodge is particularly inter- ested in telling Dottie Kuminski all about the taffy pull the Millers gang had the night after graduation. Seems that the party was crashed by a certain someone by the name of Jimmy Viens. Barb Richards has 'ust told a joke that amuses Val Jillet, for her giggle can be heard throughout the room. Anne Farnsworth and Marilyn Reipold, as spokesmen for Mistress Crean, advise everyone that it is getting late, and, that, since many have to ride their bicycles home, it is better that we adjourn for this vear. But, not until everyone has promised to return the next year, does our in- ventor press a button on his machine, which sends us back to graduation night. The speaker is saying "You, the class of '49, hold the future."

The last touches of make-up had been applied to the cast by the expert make-up artists. Miss Teed led the way from the gym onto the stage. There were the last minute good lucks. Then we took our positions for the opening of the play. Five minutes remained until curtain time. Questions began to arise in our minds. "Would the platform work?" "Would the lights back stage be put off at just the right moment?" "VVould the cast remember the lines ?" For weeks the stage crew had practised moving the platform onto the stage, opening the curtains, and drawing them around behind the platform at the very moment when the lights on stage were turned off. If this operation did not go off like clock-work, the whole scene that took place on the platform would be spoiled. While the crew had been busy practising with the lights and the platform, the cast, property committee, costume committee and business managers had been working very hard too. Many members of the cast had to learn to speak with a Norwegian accent. In fact after a few rehearsals the whole cast acquired the accent, and "Is goot" became a by-word. The costume committee had a very difficult task. They had to find one suit of clothes for every member of the cast and two costumes for the main characters. Any morning before school or during recess you could see the committee rushing in and out of Room 3 asking, "Will this do, Miss Teed?" The five minutes were up. The orchestra had finished playing. The lights in the auditorium dimmed and the senior play, "I Remember Mama" began. The scene was in San Francisco. The time was 1910. The play told about Mama, Barbara Slate, and her family consisting of Papa, Edgar Mullins, Nels, the oldest boy, Philip Stark, Katrin who narrated the play, Nancy Blood, Christine, Joanne Wojtasiewicz, and the littlest sister, Dagmar, Gloria Banash. Mama continually had trouble with sickness, and trying to make both ends meet without taking money from the bank. One amusing scene was the one in which Mama explained to her sisters, Aunt Sigrid, Joan Welsh and Aunt Jenny, Helen Sennott that Aunt Trina, Goldie Cohen, wanted to marry Mr. Thorkelson, and undertaker, played by Winslow Wentworth. Uncle Chris, William Whiteman, another member of the family, disliked the aunts and frightened them. In fact he frightened everyone except Mama. The other members of the cast were Mr. Hyde, an Englishman, Leon Mo- maney, Dr. Johnson, David Dodge, Arne, Richard Annear, A Nurse, Carolyn Donovan, Another Nurse. Anne Farnsworth, a Soda Clerk, Henry Malek, Madeline, Betty Greenlaw, and Dorothy, Joan Couture, friends of Katrin, Florence Dana Moorhead, a celebrated novelist, Barbara Richard, and Bell Boy, Kenneth Clark. We were all sorry that Charles Bourbeau could not play his role as Arne be- cause of sickness, but we were very happy that we found a good substitute in Richard Annear. Richard did not have very long to learn his part. I think we all agree that the best actor was "Snowball" Banash who played Uncle Elisabeth. He never once forgot a line or missed a cue. When "Snowball" was not on stage, he was ably taken care of by Valda Jillette who played Jessie, Uncle Chris' wife. Our play was different from others because we used a platform, the ramp and another platform to the left of the stage for many of the scenes and because Miss Teed was forced to take a well-earned curtain call at the Friday night performance.

On October 29 they began their busy schedule by sponsoring the Pumpkin Prom. This successful Halloween Dance provided an enjoyable evening for many stu- dents. Four door prizes were given away, and the several special dances and novel decorations added much to the entertaining evening. In December, the girls folded and placed in envelopes all the Christmas Seals sent to this area, and they were right on the job at the Community Sing passing out carol books. Moreover, all the members of the club contributed financially toward the Christmas decorations for the Farren Memorial Hospital, and many spent several study periods and afternoon sessions making wreaths and other trimmings. A great number of the girls also helped the Infantile Paralysis Drive by can- vassing the town. This club was iirst organized as a War Service Club and during the War con- tributed much to aid the war effort. Now, however, the girls have converted to peace time, and they are ready at all times to serve their community. The Com- munity Service Club is under the splendid supervision of Miss Helen McGilli- cuddy.

The gymnasium was decorated by students under the supervision of decorating committee chairmen, Ulaberl Palmer and David Dodge. The back wall of the gym had the silhouette of a ballerina girl ascending steps in a garden. The side rails of the gym all had a smaller silhouette of a ballerina with colorful streamers hanging on either sides. From their openings, the baskets had streamers which were hanging at the bottom. All in all the decorations were beautifully designed and carefully put up. In the receiving line were the patrons and patronesses, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur E. Burke, Mr. and Mrs. George F. Wrightson, Mrs. Austin Blood, Mrs. William Connor, Mrs. Raymond George, Mrs. Edgar Mullins, Mrs. Raymond Welsh, Miss Margaret Crean, class advisor, and Joan Couture and Edgar Mullins, class secretary and president. After everyone was introduced to the patrons, and patronesses, the grand march was started, being led by senior and junior class presidents and secretaries, Kenneth Little, Edgar Mullins, Audrey Webster and Joan Couture. During the grand march programs were given to all by Shirley Baron and Dorothy Gallant. Music was amply supplied by Ray Black's orchestra and at eleven o'clock everyone left exclaiming "What a wonderful time I had!" faer y 21? TTER?

And we have every reason to be proud because since 1946 it has grown from a small group which didn't make very many appearances, to a 60 piece class A band which is seen and heard everywhere that there is something doing. The band started OH' its season this year at the dedication of Sheff Memorial Field. Then came the fair at which it helped win the cheering cup for Turners in a tie with Greenfield. Our band attended all of our football games whether at home or away. We think this is something to be especially proud of because we helped to raise the money ourselves by doing all sorts of things. There is nothing like the band spirit when it comes to lending a helping hand. Next on its program the band had its annual Christmas Concert which is always played to a full house. It was at this concert that our student director Jane Allen "49," was introduced. It would take pages and pages to list all of the activities of the band during the year, but here are a fewg Franklin County Music Festival, Variety Show, Field Day, Western Massachusetts Music Festival, Parades and Field Days. We can't write an account of the band without mentioning our snappy squad of twirlers and the little lady who determines the fate of the band, our drum majorette, Shirley George. They have all constantly been on the job and we couldn't have done without them. We, the senior members of the band, hope that the freshmen who fill places will get as much fun and enjoyment in those positions as we did.

M. to attend the Franklin County Music Festival in the Greenfield High School Auditorium. This festival was held last year for the first time at our school. . Student Musicians from Greenfield, Charlemont, Shelburne Falls, South Deerfield, Leverett, and Deerfield also participated in this fine musical program. At 9:00 the festival was opened by the playing of the National Anthem by the Greenfield Public Schools Band. This was followed by an address of welcome from Mr. Frederick W. Porter, the Greenfield Superintendent of Schools. Then a splendid program of music was presented. To start things off was the Greenfield Public Schools Band, then the Charlemont High School Girls' Choir and The Montague City Fifth and Sixth Grade Chorus. The program continued with the Shelburne Falls Elementary Mixed Chorus, The Turners Falls High School Boys' Glee Club and the Arms Academy Band. Miss Martha Ward then directed the Greenfield Fifth and Six Grade Chorus, followed by the South Deerfield Ele- mentary Chorus under the direction of Mrs. Ruth Decker, the Leverett Tonette Groups instructed by Mrs. Clara Cook and the Turners Falls Elementary School Glee Club. The Turners Falls High School Band then played, "Service," "Hori- zon," and "In A Persian Market." Next were the Greenfield Junior High School Girls' Glee Club, the Arms Academy Mixed Vocal Groups, The Greenfield High School Girls' Glee Club, and the Turners Falls High School Girls' Glee Club who sang "When You Wish Upon a Star," and "An Offering." The program ended with the Turners Falls Elementary Band playing "Colosseum." Both Mr. Deland and Mr. Gribbon had musical displays in the corridor and near the end of the festival Mr. Gribbon gave away many prizes to the persons who happened to hold the correct ticket. Many of these winners were from Turners Falls. A This festival made it possible for student musicians from all of Franklin County to meet together and enjoy listening to each other's musical selections. The green, red, and blue uniforms and the pastel colors worn by the Turners High School Girls' Glee Club plus other colorful groups, indeed made it a colorful as well as a successful festival. - Page Sixtygfour WE HOLD THE FUTURE" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1949 ORANGE MUSIC FESTIVAL May 14 - The fourth annual Western Massachusetts Music Festival was held in Orange today. The purpose of the festival is to encourage youth in music. Instead of being rated each organization received constructive criticisms from the judges. -A F 'z QQPLEBZ' The Girls' and Boys' Glee Clubs, the High School Band, David Maddern and the Elementary Band represented Turners Falls. All the Glee Clubs' audi- tions were held in the Congregational Church where H. Augustine Smith of Bos- ton University was judge. The bands auditioned at the Town Hall under Judge C. Paul Herfuth, and David Maddern played his piano solo at the Orange Theater where Miss Mary Lane wasjudge. After their auditions our groups had avchance to hear a few of the soloists, bands and choral organizations of other schools. At 2:00 the colorful grand parade began with the Northampton High School Band leading. This parade consisting of fifty-three units was divided into eight divisions. The Turners Falls organizations were in the fourth division. The parade started below the armory and ended at the Town Park. Upon entering the park each unit was announced and passed before the reviewing stand. After the reviewing of t-he parade well-executed drills were presented by the Northampton, Athol, Palmer, West Springfield and Orange high school bands. Each band received a good hand. ' Immediately following the drills the bands massed under the direction of C. Paul Herfuth to play the S. I. B. A., Service, Indiana State Band, Westener and the Thunderer marches. Mr. Herfuth tried to keep the tempo of the marches slow, but the bands continually picked up the tempo. Aside from this one fault the massed bands sounded very good. This section of the program was concluded with the playing of the National Anthem. While the massed bands were playing, the massed chorus was held in the Central Congregational Church under the direction of H. Augustine Smith. They sang, "One World," "Cindy," "The Lost Chord," "You'1l Never Walk Alone," "Beautiful Saviour," "Jesus Joy of Man's Desiring," and "O God Our Help in Ages Past." During the parade, drilling and massed bands, a film was taken which will be shown in the participant schools in the fall. Tape recordings were made of some of the auditions. These recordings were played on the radio the next day. The parade and description of the bands was also broadcasted on the radio directly from the Town Park as a public service feature. For the past two years the festival had been held in West Springfield. This year it was held in Orange, and next year Northampton will be the host. The festival ofiicials hope that the festival will be held in other towns, too, in order that the value of music may be spread.

They now number sixteen including two vocalists. They have grown so in popularity that they were asked to play at one of the school dances, the Freshman Hop, dedication of Hibernian Hall, and the Amer- ican Legion buffet and dance. This was outside their regular appearances which areg the Girl Scout dance, the Grammar School Graduation dance, the Variety Show and the Cabaret. At the Cabaret this year they put on an entertainment that ranged from a croon tune that was really solid to a real Dixie Land band arrangement that rocked the house.

Guilbeault, J. Lemerlin, A. O'Hara, F. Webber First Row - A. Farnsworth, B. DeGraf'fe, H. Sennott This is a story of our senior twirlers from their entrance in our sophomore year through this year. At tryouts, those chosen were Shirley George, Betty Earley, Nancy Blood, Pauline Waidlich, Bernice DeGraH'e and Helen Sennott. The girls did not do much this first year because the band was not large and we did not have uniforms. The outstanding features ot this year were the football games. At the first annual Christmas concert ofthe band and Glee Clubs, the twirlers presented an exhibition. At the end of the year, Nancy Blood was changed to playing trombone and Pauline Waidlich changed too. The only new addition from our class was Anne Farnsworth. During the summer, our uniforms were ordered, but did not arrive until the fall, and so we had to go to the fair and to Everett without them. A first this year was the Open House, at which the twirl- ers acted as ushers. The cabaret was sponsored by the band and as "women of the Band" we served refreshments. Although the team was not invited to ,the Western Massachusetts tournament at Amherst, the band was and the twirlers accompanied them. The tournament at Assumption College was the next high- light of our year. On April 18 and 19, the opening of the "Lion's Roa1"' saw the girls in greasepaint on the stage at the Victoria theater. On May 1, a new "An- nual" was begun at Turners. It was the Franklin County Music Festival. Each group was assigned a room and a hostess, from the twirlers. With the usual parades, this ended our second year of twirling, but realizing that we would lose some of our older members, tryouts again were held and for the eight places vacated by seniors, thirty-five tried out. The new recruits from the senior class were Anne O'Hara, Jean Lemerlin, and Barbara Richard. This year the "Staff" as the Drum Major and the Lieutenants are called, consisted of Shirley George, Bernice DeGraH"e, Anne Farnsworth and Helen Sennott, respectively.

This year it consisted of 70 members, 13 of whom were seniors. Their Presi- dent this year was Betty Greenlawg the librarian, Valda Jillette, the secretary, Lorraine Christian. The group was divided into live sections, the leaders of which are: Section 1, Adella Chartierg Section 2, Anne Farnsworth, Section 3, Jean Pierce, Section 4, Irene Pauling Section 5, Beverly Jackson. Every year they attend the Franklin County Festival and the Western Massachusetts Music Festival. The first was held in Greenfield and the second was held in Orange this year. The girls sang, "Ora Pro Nobis," "When You Wish Upon A Star," and "The Offering." The Girls' Glee Club also took part in the Variety Show. They sang, "Noc- ture," with Bernice DeGrafTe singing the solo, "Ora Pro Nobis," "When You Wish Upon A Star," and "The Gypsy Choral Fantasie" with Phyllis Mentor doing an incidental ballet dance. There were also some instrumentalists in the organizations. Marian Kendrow and Dolores Porlier played their accordions in this number while June Doherty, Mary Ellen Schwartz and Virginia Banash played violins. Irene Paulin accompanied on the tambourine. Our piano accom- panists were lrene Paulin, Jean Pierce and Bernice DeGraH'e. Page Sixty-nine "WE HOLD THE FUTURE" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1949 BOYS' GLEE CLUB Back Row - R. Chappell, M. Emond, L.

We also went to Greenfield on two occa- sions, first to sing for the Daughters of the Revolution and second, to take part in the Franklin County Music Festival, which was held at the Greenfield High School. Then we made an appearance at the Western Massachusetts Festival in Orange. Our last recital of the year was heard at the Variety Show in our high school. We have a freshman soloist, Charles Miner, who has a very good voice. At the Variety Show he sang the solo part of the song, "Were you There?," accom- panied by Bill Whiteman, Paul Vivier, Mike Byer, David Dodge, William Reum, Joe Krol, and Phil Casey. Our accompanist was Bernice DeGraH'e who has been with the club for three years. The songs we sang this year were, "Scandalize My Name," "Climb Up the Mountain," "Adoramus Te," "Upon the Mountain," "Busy Doing Nothing," and "Dry Bones." Norm Farwell sang, "Busy Doing Nothing," with the boys singing the chorus in the back ground. "Dry Bonesn was another hit at the Variety Show with its many sound effects to accompany the boys.

Quite a number of candidates tried out and seven were selected by the student body. The candidates waited over a weekend, for the votes to be counted, before they knew who had obtained the much-wanted position. The suspense was terrify- ing, and at recess the notice was put up on the bulletin board. Each one, holding her breath, longingly looked at the bulletin board, and the following walked away with a sigh of relief: Gloria Banash, jean Woodin, Sylvia Thistle, Ruth SanSoucie, Germain Galipault, Chella Lyman and Barbara Kellyhouse. The one cheer- leader, Betty Greenlaw, remaining from' the year before, was elected captain of the cheerleaders by the group of eight girls. During the summer months, they spent a few mornings each week at the high school and under the capable assistance of Miss Reum, they made their new uniforms of a blue skirt, which was made very full and flared. The front part of the tops of their uniforms were white with inserted blue points. The back part of their tops were all blue. Their uniforms were decidedly different and looked very attractive on all of them. Every Monday night, the cheerleaders would meet at the high school and practice the cheers, learn new ones, and prepare for the forthcoming events. After all their hard work preparing and learning new things for the coming events, they certainly displayed their ability during the year. The cheerleaders did a marvelous job at the Franklin County Fair, and with many new cheers and ideas, they led the student body on to victory, winning the cheering cup for the first time in ten years. The group of eight girls traveled with their pep, vim and vigor to all the foot- ball games and cheered for our team whether they won or lost. They also cheered at all our football rallies before every game. The cheerleaders also attended all of the basketball games and cheered our basketball team to victory. Page Seventy three "WE HOLD THE FUTURE" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 1949 THE FOOTBALL TEAM , I Page Seventygfour WE HOLD THE FUTURE" TURNERS FALLS HIGH SC HOOL 1949 Football 1948 On August 16, 1948, Coach Graeber began practise with 40 promising boys. It was his second year at teaching T-formation and Mr. Graeber drilled his squad morning and afternoon to get them prepared for the first game which was with Adams at home on the newly dedicated Sheff Field. The Powertowners won 13-0. Next week found an open date and after two weeks of constant rough scrimmage, the Indians lost a heartbreaking 13-6 thriller to a powerful Holyoke eleven. The next week the Indians engaged a small but tricky and fast Drury team to a score- less deadlock. The following Saturday the air was full of Meon-to-Murphy aerials which resulted in a 26-0 upset. The "promised last year's team" sparked the Indians to a 27-0 revenge over the Tech Tigers. One week later the Indians played host to Gardner and were defeated by the Wildcats 13-0. During the next week the Powertowners practised extra-hard so that they might redeem themselves against Westfield, but Gallo again led his Bombers to a convinced 31-13 trounc- ing over the Blue. The dejected Indians again took to the road to face a favored Agawam eleven. During the first three quarters of this game Turners looked destined for a victory as they outclassed the hometowners. But in the last quarter a screen-pass backfired and was intercepted for Agawam's winning 6-0 score. At the next engagement Turners finally broke its slump by conquering Holyoke Catholic by 15-0. This victory gave the boys added courage in the preparation for Greenfield's game. The big day came when the two teams met on the new Veterans' Memorial Field, Greenfield. The underdog Powertowners started off with a terrific attack against the overrated Greenies. Both teams clashed into a deadlock until late in the second quarters when a safety cost the Indians two points. Several lucky breaks would have resulted in an Indian tally right after. During the "between-halfs" the two high schools put on a colorful demonstration. The two teams came back with great determination. The spirited Greenies immediately commenced a touch-down drive. Later in the quarter the Green Wave tallied again to place themselves on top 14-0. The hopeful T. F. fans wildly cheered the hard-fighting Indians as they made their first and only touch-down of the classic. Paul Vivier's educated toe placed the pigskin squarely between the uprights. The final score was 14-7. The seniors on team were Hippo Mullins, Co-Captaing Jim Viens, Co-Captaing Wadic Carlisle, Turkey Emond, Don Wyman, Rujay Parenteau, Don Tooly, Bill Whiteman, Carl Kurtgis, Bob Litchfield, Arty Houseman, Pauly Vivier, Larry Cadran and Tossie Milonas. The seasons' standings were three wins, six losses and one tie, but the boys received helpful training in sportsmanship which they can always put to good use later on in life. Page Seventy-five x N..

Riel, M. Szihareski, Hogan This year the basketball team enjoyed only two victories for the season. With no veterans on the team, and a tough schedule to meet, the Indians never lost spirit throughout the season and played their best even with the Valley League. In the Valley League, the fastest of all High School Basketball Leagues, Turners finished fifth. The Greenies, our rivals from across the river scalped the Indians by a score of 41-24. In the Indians' camp, the team lost by a score of 46-33 which proved to be a close game except for a last burst of strength by the Green who climbed to another victory. Turners showed its ever present spirit by whipping Arms and Chicopee. The high scorer for Turners was Co-Captain Spike Mleczko, who compiled a handsome 144 points. Other seniors who comprised the team were Co-Captain Archie McClary, Roge Paranteau, Artie I-Iousman and Walt Cygan. Second highest scorer for the Indians was Andy Rastallis, a junior who attained 101 points. The basketball team hopes that Coach Putman has enjoyed working with the team as much as they have enjoyed working with him and we sincerely hope that he has a great deal of success in the future.

Chappell The Powertown track squad opened its season last year at the Franklin County Fair. Turners just barely nosed out Greenfield 405-41M to capture the annual track meet cup for the eleventh consecutive year. The first Spring meet took place as the Indians competed against the Deer- field Varsity. Even though we lost to these college equivalents 8949, it was good practice for the new boys on the squad. The track team met another varsity squad at Mount I-Iermon. Their brave efforts proved in vain as the Hermonites ran away with the meet 98-9. At the Massachusetts State Relays, Turners took 5th place in class D with 9 points. The Indians shot put andjavelin throwers were second and third best in the state respectively. All four seniors on the track squad scored. They were: Captain Larry Cadran, Ray Chappell, Dave Dodge and Walt Cygan. Coach Putman will take his squad to Westfield this Saturday QMay 285 to compete for Western Mass. track honors. Since the field-event men have cap- tured most of the honors for Turners, Coach Putman is relying upon them mostly. His dash men are Dave Dodge, Bill Sawin, Fran Rosewarne, Moo Riel, and Fran Welcome. In the "distances" Ray Chappell shines alone. In the field events, his eight-throwers are Capt. Larry Cadran, Dave Dodge, Don Lamour- eaux, Dennis Choleva, Gimme Naida and Walt Cygan. The jumpers are Walt Cygan, Larry Cadran, Dave Dodge and Nic Gralenski.

It seems that more and more girls have become athletic minded --everybody wants to get into the act. As you will recall, there were many girls out on the very little field last year for the practice of Field Hockey. However, a good number of girls turned out for the practices, when the football team wasn't practicing, enough so we had a good-sized team. Even the basketball team seemed to swell into a new high this year. So many turned out for it that the team had to be cut down. We did, however, manage to get the gym twice a week for practice. As for the intramurals, I never before saw so many girls take part. Now that spring is here there has been the chattering of the eager girls playing soft ball. So you see, boys, that's the humming noise. Not only about softball, but where are we to play and when, as the boys are so busy with their events on the field. The gym is also filled with the pride of Turners-the tumbling team. The opposite sex seems to think that the athletic-minded girls will soon fade out. By this time they should know that when a woman's mind is made up nothing can change it. So boys, don't be too surprised if you see the T. F. girls playing new games in the near future--or when the field problems have been solved.

LaMountain The Girls' Basketball team was sparked this year not by points, losses or vic- tories, but by outstanding sportsmanship. The girls' spirit never faltered even though each game ended in a loss. They reported to practice each time with more spunk, and eagerness to learn and fight. Indeed, some of these games were pretty close and no excuses were made by any girl. The girls who didn't get a chance to play in the games showed sportsmanship by offering no comments to the coach. After many years we got new uniforms. They are blue with white stripes. To keep us looking smart some of the girls got together and ordered sneakers which were also blue and white.

Whiteman Although we had little veteran material to start with, Coach Graeber man- aged to produce a scrappy baseball team. This year's team was composed mostly of sophomores and juniors competing for first team positions. Walter Carlisle, Edgar Mullins, Paul Vivier, Henry Mleczko, and Bill Whiteman, as manager, helped the Indian cause a great deal. After winning five exhibition games, the Indians started their regular sched- ule by thumping Athol 17-11. The Powertowners dropped their lirst Valley League game to their arch- rival Greenfield by a 12-5 score and then their second to Westfield by 10-7. Turners then lost a heartbreaker to Holyoke in the closing innings by an 8-6 score. Thus far, when we go to print, the Indians have shown fine spirit and are bound to finish with a good record.
