Yep, I’m gonna tell you a story now. Now, it isn’t any yarn that many of us know how to tell. This is a real story of our class. Well now, let me see — on the first Wednesday in September of 1949 we had our first round-up of 109 students. How excitin’ that were — to see all the new faces. ’Course many knowed the ivy-covered buildings, but there was just as many that got losted with all them rooms. Naturally, when football started all our strapin’ younguns turned out for the sport. We even had our own team. Then came our first dance in the T.F.H.S. It was at that there dance that we was, ya might say, formally accepted by them high’n’mighty senior Indians. Did ya know that we was the first freshmen ever to appear in a Christmas Concert as an “Echo Choir”? During our sophomore year, we already felt like old hands. Yessiree — now that I think about it we really rode the range. One of the first big doin’s was the e-lection of our class officers. To this here day we all feel that these repree-sentatives can’t be matched. We chose for our Big Chief, Donald Graves; his cowboy helper, Charles Care; cowgirl secretary, Mary LaChapelle; Squaw of wampum Jeanne Bordeaux and Squaw of history, Monica Rastallis. About this here time, our class teacher. Miss McGillicuddy, helped us make preparations (any big words you come across, I learned here in high school) for our first dance, the Sophomore Social. Yessir, that was some affair with the music by the “Eagleaires.” Decorations were in a Christmas style. Juniors are considered upper classmen and that is what we was in the fall of 1951. That was — but let me git on with our story. Classes were harder, but we made up fer that with our many extry-kricular activities. To make sure we got off on the right foot we re-elected the same class officers. And ya know, before we realized it, it was time for the Junior Prize Speaking try-outs. Those se-lected were Phyllis Guilbault, Mary LaChapelle, Carol Wrightson, Sally Handfield, Raymond Delf, Edward Gignac, John Gralenski and David McLaughlin. Chosen as alternates were Erwin Haigis, Raymond Brule, David Bitzer, Nancy Podlenski, Ann Paulin, and Monica Rastallis. Phyllis Guilbault roped first prize, John Gralenski had second, and Raymond Delf and Carol Wrightson shared third. Boy, things really went rollin’, fer the followin’ week we gave our Junior Prom. Whata affair! And don’t you think we had an appropriate theme? It was the “Loveli- est Night in the Year” with all them pastel shades. At one end of the gymnasium was a realistic scene in which was a black marble arch. We had a make-b’lieve lady in a green gown put on the arch to give the ’pearance of startin’ out for our Prom. Ray Black played the music. Last fall we had our last round-up of eighty-seven students. Our class got a trifle smaller, but we was and still are powerful. Agin, the first thing we did was to select the same officers as we had the year b’fore. We held the Senior-Ereshman dance welcoming the freshman to “OUR” high school. The decorations combined the colors of the two classes; purple, green, and white. Let me see now, some of our husky younguns I told you about before were Norman Gerber, Norman LaPalme, Charles Care, Thomas Foley, Eugene Zewinski, Francis Killelea, Francis Pleasant, John Councilman, George Miner and Edward Gay. The Indians had something to be proud a’ after these fellers stayed through four years of football. Jumpin’ g horseafats, our senior year did fly! During our last year we did a bang up job on everything including our Senior-Frosh Hop. It was really the beginning of the end. Remember how we all got “goose-fleshy” when we had our Senior Play try-outs on December 4 for “Annie Get Your Gun” and the see-spence after?

The big show was on June 18, 1953. Golly, the day had come — we was graduatin’. The followin’ day as usual was final assembly an’ the traditional tears gathered in pools in the aisles. So now we is called “grads.” Yep, we graduated to a new life but we shall never — ever forgit them happy and sorrowful years on the campin’ grounds of the Turners Falls High School.

This typical cafeteria scene shows the bustle each recess brought DRIVER EDUCATION come! Our driver education department, under the leadership of Mr Here they come! Our driver e Fugere, has an unscarred record. THE TRACK TEAM Our track team under Mr. Putnam has been most active this year, capturing the Valley League title and fourth place in Western Massachusetts. They have also won one dual meet and lost one. THE T CLUB The T club under the direction of Mr. Schuldt and Mr. Putnam is composed of 24 athletes from the football, basketball, baseball, tennis and track teams. In Our Sports, ’Though Not Always Tops In Points . THE FOOTBALL TEAM We are proud of our football team, even though they did not always come through with a win. We knew that we would never be disappointed when it came to a good show in fair play. The team was led by Captain Norman Gerber and coached by William “Dutch” Schuldt. who was assisted by Mr. Putnam and Mr. Bourdeau. Our boys went out on the field and fought all opponents with everything that they had. What more can any school ask? The informal snapshot of three of our five senior players shows that a “clean” game can also be “dirty.” BOYS’ BASKETBALL— Varsity The varsity team, coached by “Dutch” Schuldt, was bettered in points but not in sportsmanship. Throughout the season, they fought valiantly but lost good-naturedly. They represented our school well in the Western Massachusetts Small School Tourna- ment. ‘Zoo’ orm Our Senior team members leave behind memories of exciting battles. Remember them by these informal shots. “Gooch” . . . We Bowed To No One In Sportsmanship . . , BOYS’ JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL Our boys’ J. V. team under Mr. Bourdeau displayed the fight and spirit of true sportsmen. Next year’s varsity seems to have a bright future. GIRLS’ JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM The J. V. Girls’ team with Captain Joan Welcome has had a fairly successful season. Wonderful spirit and exceptionally good sportsmanship were the high points of the games. GIRLS’ BASKETBALL— Varsity The girls’ basketball team, captained by Sally Handfield and coached by Mrs. Reidy, had a successful season. THE TUMBLERS One of the most popular attractions at the Variety Show is the Tumblers. They also performed their feats at the field days. Instructor of the group is Mrs. Reidy. THE CHEERLEADERS T. Miller, J. Annear, J. Pierce, Captain P. Verrier, J. Bordeaux, B. Jurec, N. Dion, and P. Nelson were the peppy cheerleaders who kept the rallies, games, and tourna- ments in the highest spirits.

Heard you later, when my branches Bare of all their shade became. Comment on the work they gave you But you loved it just the same. Though you rail and cry against it I who saw your deep thoughts knew All the things you saw and did there Slowly changed to part of you. Now you go, I speak no parting Dumbly stand while you leave Dumbly stand and know, inside you What you’ve shunned, you hate to leave. One more rung is added to me One of four you’ve seen me grow Some of you are gone forever Seen no more when once you go.

And So We Leave Everything We, the class of the year 1953, having arrived at our goal and facing our “last roundup,” do will and bequeath such worldly possessions as are herein stated. Being of sound mind and of our unforced will, we do hereby make null and void anv document as may have been written or signed by our hand. To wit. if any, and be it known by all men, we hereby open our will. In gratitude we place first in our list of bequestals, our teachers. Realizing the peculiar effects students have on teachers, we admit from experience, and realizing that the present Junior Class is no exception, w ' e leave, with heartfelt sympathy, a large economy size bottle of aspirin pills for pains prompted by “punk” pupils. Thus ends the worldly possessions of the class of ’53, the financial status being such as is too embarrassing to mention. However, there are a large number of individual bequests to be made. Ernie Lagimoniere promises to marry money, solely for the interests of the school you understand, and donate a printing press to Miss Teed. Phyllis Guilbault, repenting at last, leaves the teachers peace and quiet. Sallv Handfield leaves the cartoons carved in her desk in room 28 to any enterprising artist. Jeanne Bordeaux leaves her place in the cheerleaders to Joan Welcome. Jack Councilman and Judy Laukaitis leave, arm in arm. To Mr. Galvin (Sir) we leave the New York Yankees and the Democrats. Betty Bergiel and Alice Lehman leave their basketball know-how to “Trudy” Miller and Wilma Lyman. Richard Neipp and Edwin Niedbala leave to Louie Councilman and Ray Bender the task of proving that chivalry is not dead. Mary LaChapelle leaves her giggle to haunt the teachers for the rest of their natural born lives. Arnold Rubin does not leave Marguerite Emery! Erma Pease leaves a case of vitamin pills to next year s tumblers. Norinne Jacobus leaves two worn out pianos, two beat up kettle drums, six broken bell mallets, and her position as a member of the “Boys Glee Club” with a sigh of relief. (Oh, yeah?? ) Tommy Foley leaves to the school library a book entitled “Silly Questions to Get the Teacher Off the Subject,” of which he was co-author with Butch Brule and Donald Graves. Nancy Podlenski leaves her little black book of note paper to Barbara Jurek and Joannie Pierce for use in history class. Pat Verrier leaves captain of the cheerleaders to be decided bv a trial-by-combat bout between the contestants. Paul Prunier and Tommy Sowell pull on their boots, strap on their guns and ride into the sett ing sun. Eddie Gay leaves his harmonica playing to Bradley Lanfair, (May he rest in peace.) Fred Oakes leaves his shining simonized halo to Louie Councilman, (he can use it, and how ! ) David Bitzer leaves a thesis on the subject “Live Alone and Like It” to Fred Gralenski. Norma Thibodeau leaves her (ugh) nickname of “Teabottles” to anyone who can stomach it. Bill Lynch leaves his ability to play professional pool properly to Simp Kelly. Francis Pleasant and Lloyd May request that their scholarly looks and intellectual excuses be left to some sophomore in order that he may have the years it takes to develop this technique necessary to apply them with the utmost polish. (Application blanks are available on request.) Buddy Haigis doesn’t want to leave. Judy Webster leaves us wondering about her secret formula for getting a letter written every day before one o’clock. Judy Packard leaves her ability to talk and drum at the same time to anyone who can do it with such amazing effects. Ray Delf leaves his collection of conservative shirts to “Red” with which to blind fellow students. Norman Gerber leaves his size 12 footsteps for the next football captain to follow. To the faculty we leave a crying towel for we know they’ll be sorry to see us go! Jerry Pierce leaves his gym suit to James Russell, hope it fits! Eddie Van Steenburg leaves as fast as he can. Bobby Zamojski leaves his title “Zum” to his younger sister. Merton Silver leaves his straight “A” record in History as a challenge to any young whippersnapper who thinks he can beat the record of the class of ’53! (so there! ) Norman LaPalme leaves his genuine, imitation leopard shirt to Stanley Kestyn. Joanna Banash leaves the managing of the girls’ basketball team to Pat Tranowski. John Gralenski and Ming Killelea leave a photograph of themselves, standing side by side labeled, “Which Twin Has the Toni?” Judy Boissonneault leaves her supply of bus tokens to Patty Kratz for her daily trips to and from Greenfield. To the English department we leave a book on grammatical usage entitled “Why Ain’t Ain’t Keerect?” We all leave, but we will keep forever, fond memories and gratitude for “services ren- dered above and beyond the call of duty” by the faculty, our principal and our superintendent. With the exhausting of the bequestals of the class of ’53, know all men by these presents, that this document has been found in order and within the laws in all parts. Drawn up and accepted in the year of our Lord, one thousand, nine hundred and fifty -three. In witness there of we hearby lay our hand. John Gralenski Mary LaChapelle Sally Handfield Signed by: DONALD GRAVES, President CHARLES CARE, Vice President . . . But The Memories . . . The halls where we worked, the fields where we played Our games and our plays and the friends that we made A re forever imprinted down deep in our hearts And the thought of our school a glad mem’ ry imparts Of our fun, and how all, in the years we were there Knew friendship and smiles in its sheltering care The memories of work and the good times as well Bring tears to our eyes as we bid you, farewell We’ll honor your standards and grow in their worth No matter where life’s road may lead us on earth.
