The ninth year is here And now, many teachers peer In the same, wise way. As now the ninth year passes away. The sun flows in and rests on the desk Lighting up " Algebra I’’ or a copy of " Quest.” I love this scene, as day by day. Nine years are passing away. SAME SCENE: The desk remains the same old way. As tw ' elve long years pass away. The teachers still peer From year to year. Yet I prepare to go away. They’ll stay the same forever, I guess; The books, the teachers, students and desk. — Ann 1950 Kelly. 8 TO OUR CLASS TEACHER Miss Olive Little We, The Class of 1950 Wish to Express Our Deepest Appreciation to You MISS OLIVE LITTLE For your wise advice and the kind understanding with which you have guided us throughout our four years of High School.

The upperclassmen were quite amused Because the first few days we were so confused. Out of five freshman games our football team won four, They vowed in the future to win even more. At the Freshman Hop we were formally greeted And after that we were respectfully treated As full-fledged students of TFHS, The school which we knew was the best. Four years have since passed swiftly by. But memories of these years will never die. SOPHOMORE YEAR In ’47 we had our first class elections. And the following were the class’s selections; President — George Riel Vice-President — William Burnham Secretary — Dorothy Gunn Treasurer — Claire Bordeaux Historian — Dorothy Wallenius Miss Little was chosen as our class advisor. Her faithful guidance has made us much wiser. Then we started preparations for the Sophomore Dance; Our first social event, so here was our chance To prove to the others that our class was " OK” In planning entertainment in a jovial way. Many of us joined clubs, and got into full swing. They kept us busy from fall right through spring. We worked and enjoyed ourselves day after day, And quickly another year passed on its way. JUNIOR YEAR Our junior year proved to be a busy one, We worked and helped and had our fun, This fall we had class elections once more. And the result for two years was the same as before. In March, the contestants for Prize Speaking were tried. And the following were what the judges did finally decide: Dorothy Gunn, Jerome O’Connell, Barbara Mullins, Joan Wrightson and Michael Byer. Joseph Krol gave " The Horse Race” by Tolstoi and won first prize while Mary Ellen Schwarz took second place with " Lois and Her Boy Friends” by Jerome Chodorov and Joseph Fields and by giving " Dark Glasses” by Tom Powers, Francis Welcome won third prize. Our Junior Prom came early in May, And everyone was excited and gay. Claire Bordeaux and Helen Conway designed the decorations so bright. And the committee made the gym an elegant sight. On the backboard was a huge, flowered tree. Seated beneath it, a silhouetted couple we could see. And everyone danced and had a grand time. It seemed as though it ended too near to its prime. 49 SENIOR YEAR We started off this year with a bang! At the County Fair we cheered and sang, While down on the track the boys in blue, Were trying their hardest to win, too. So we won both track and cheering at the fair. While our poor opponents tore their hair. Our next achievement was the Thanksgiving Day Game, When Turners’ team rose to victory and fame. The day of the game broke clear and bright. We had the spirit and we had the fight: And the team went on, play after play. And brought the trophy home to stay. A social event was next in sight. And we planned and worked to make it just right. So we welcomed the Freshmen at the annual Hop, And we all danced to music that ranked at the top. Always represented in basketball and other sports, too. We did our best to help the team pull through. When the Glee Clubs sing and the Band is playing. Everywhere you will hear people saying: " Their music and concerts are always so fine. It’s a credit to the school and a good sign.” In December we had tryouts for senior play. And from then ’til February they worked hard day after day To put on Edna Ferber’s and George Kaufman’s " Stage Door,” For two nights the players received applause galore. The production staff pitched in behind the scenes. Willingness and hard work were their only means. There were thirty actors who played their parts so well. All of the audience thought they were just swell. And so we leave; but many are the memories dear. Which we’ll cherish year after year. 50 61VKKS Our tents are folded and put away, But we mustn’t leave ’til we’ve had our say. Big Chief Moo with birchbark scroll, Gathered the braves and called the roll. He asked each being of sound mind. To present gifts to those left behind. So that is how the will began. In memory of the ’30 clan. Rip Pollard leaves his bow tie to Bobby Sicard in hopes that he can fill it. Pres Shanahan leaves his well worn book of excuses to Zino George who will pass them on to Mr. Wrightson.

Nick Gralenski and Chet Watroba leave their curly hair to Nick’s young brother John. Jean Woodin and Spooky Krol leave Mr. Graeber peace and quiet.

Andy Rastallis leaves his basketball playing to Jake Wyman and please Jake don’t tell your mother! All the well behaved seniors of Room 21 leave Miss Little blessed rest. She earned it. Jean Waseleski and Claire Bordeaux don’t leave Gimmy Naida and Andy Rastallis to any junior that wants them. The senior play cast leaves Miss Teed that luxurious and velvety rehearsal couch to recuperate. All the Einsteins of the senior class leave Miss Lindsay an easier set of logrithms and a new set of plastic triangles. Well, well, well. Now we come to Miss Ayer. What shall we leave her? Well, well, well! We leave Miss Reum a pin feather puller for tackling those mrkeys. Anne Dale and Ronnie Newton leave their carrot tops to Freddie Oakes. Joan Wrightson leaves both the Netop and Yearbook to anyone who wants to make Room 23 their permanent residence next year! Pippers Pipione leaves her busy beachwagon to Mick ey Caouette. 52 Moo Riel and his cousin Betty leave their famous name to Moo’s brother Buddie. Dotty Gunn leaves her drums to Mary Dodge. Billy Burnham and Janice Tompkins leave their book, " How to Make Up After A Fight” to Jimmy Dale and Bev Jackson. Dot Wallenius leaves her noisy and boisterous disposition to Frances Chappell. Mary Ellen Schwarz leaves her long flowing hair to June George. Barb Mullins, Fay Webber and Lois Guilbault leave their twirling record to any junior who can beat it. Fetm Casey leaves his flat top to the tumblers so they stand on their heads. Our tents are really on the move now, We’ve been the best tribe that we knew how, So upon our horses and away to ride. To whatever is waiting — on the outside.

Welcome. 75 BRAVES IN TRAINING CAMP 1950 BASEBALL As this year’s baseball season draws near as we go to press, our hopes are much brighter than they were last year at the same time. This year’s team is rated equal to some of the best that have played in many years. The team is composed mostly of seniors who have had two years’ experience behind them as varsity players. The positions not occupied by seniors will be filled by very capable juniors or sophomores. Speaking from the point of victories and losses, last year’s season was not too successful and these present seniors feel that they can make this year’ team avenge some of the defeats handed them last year. As a matter of fact it was noted that last year’s team was one the hardest hitting teams in Western Massachusetts. Many of this years’ seniors played independent ball throughout the summer and gained added experience by doing this. We feel that in Coach Graeber we have one of the best coaches in our section of the State. He has proved his ability in this year’s football and is expected to do likewise in base- ball. He seriously believes in getting the batting candidates out for early practice. For this reason our battery candidates reported in March. Weather is a prime factor in determining the efficiency of a team and this may mean a lot to the team this year. Those lettermen returning this year are Walter " Gimmy” Naida, William Burnham, Joseph " Spooky” Krol, James " Blackie” Nadeau, George " Moo” Riel, William Sawin, Francis " Henic” Welcome, Bernard Murley, Edward " Zoo” Zewinski, James Dale, and David Hurlburt. Others who were on last year’s team and who are remrning this year are Edward " Doc” Milewski, Edward Slate, Donald Burke, and Walter Bialecki. With these boys mentioned above and others it looks as if the team will be a strong contender for sectional honors. 78 IN APPRECIATION OF OUR ADVERTISERS! WE, THE CLASS OF 1950, WISH TO THANK ALL OF OUR ADVERTISERS WHO HAVE MADE POSSIBLE THIS, OUR YEARBOOK, ALSO FOR THE HEARTY COOPERATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM ALL OF YOU. 80 TO A BRIGHT FUTURE!
