One of the first Schools where our forefathers first strove to gain
knowledge, where the foundations of our present school system were laid,
Our own dear Turners Falls High School where we spent four of
the most wonderful years of our lives - within these walls we have not only
gained knowledge, we have gained something more, a better understanding of
life's mysteries, and a new fellowship with all men.

who enjoyed every
This is the Netop and Yearbook Staff, who worked
hard all year, striving to make our paper and yearbook a
greater success than ever. During this last year, the work
on this staff has taught us to assume responsibility, to co-
operate, and to take criticism. Above all, we've had that
feeling of satisfaction, after completing a job.
Yes, we've worked hard and learned much, but that
was only part of it. After meetings, at dances, and on trips,
we've shared many enjoyable hours. Through these times
we have been drawn closer together and have become real
friends. The comradeship we have found through our staff
will remain with us long after our years here are over. It
has been a great honor to serve on this staff. The things
we've learned here and the friends we've made here, we
will never forget.

CLASS HI TURY
Freshmen went through the doors of T.F.H.S. in 1950. We were starting four of the
most important years of our lives. As Freshmen we didn't participate in many activities.
Our first big thrill was the Freshmen Hop at which we were officially welcomed by the
Seniors. Another big thrill for the Home Economic girls was that unforgettable night
they served at the football banquet. CSigh-h-hj The Freshmen football got under way
and made quite a name for themselves. Gaining a little more confidence some joined the
band. In june we viewed our first graduation. We were spellbound over this great event
and couldn't believe that someday we might follow in their footsteps.
Our Sophomore year we really got into the swing of things, joining many clubs and
extra curricular activities. We gave our first big dance, the Sophomore Social. To our
surprise and delight it was a huge success. Our next big thrill was the first election of our
class officers. We elected Dickie Thompson, President, Bobby Desautels, Vice-President,
Peggy Richards, Secretary, Mary Lou Kozloski, Treasurer, and Wilma Lyman, Historian.
Our Junior year - upper classmen at last. Now our Social life began. People really
began to take notice of us when we presented our Junior Prize Speaking. Will you ever
forget those butterflies you had in your stomach as you waited to try out, and the joy or
disappointment of the next morning when we found out who had made it. The Prize
Speakers were Margie Swehla, Carol Sulda, Barbara Jurek, Wilma Lyman, Roger Cross-
man, Freddie Olchowski, Ernest Momaney, and Paul LeMoine. Through the co-operation
of the whole class Prize Speaking went beautifully. The winners were Wilma Lyman, first
prize, Carol Sulda, second prize, and Rodger Crossman, third prize. Next came that star
sprinkled night - our junior Prom. The decorations were "April in Paris" designed by
Martha Reil. Dressed in soft formals we floated through the evening, aglow with happi-
ness. All too soon it was over. And so ended our successful junior year, and left us looking
forward to the last and best - our Senior year.
Senior year, the year we had dreamed about was finally here. We started out filled
with new responsibilities and many hopes. We welcomed the Freshmen just a little sadly
remembering four years ago when we had been welcomed in the same manner. Many of
us were honored by being selected officers of various clubs. Senior play tryouts . . . hope-
fully and fearfully we tried our best. The lucky people chosen to take part in the play, "The
Barretts of Wimpole Street", were Carol Sulda and Dickie Thompson, the leads, Raymond
Bender, Ernest Momaney, Elliot Markham, Lewis Brown, Philip Bordeau, Amy Cotter,
Trudy Miller, joan Beauchamp, Wilma Lyman, janet Welsh, Peggy Richards, Ernest Yukl,
Freddy Olchowski, Margie Swehla, and Roger Crossman. joan Webster and Martha Reil
were the able assistants to Miss Teed. All the committees who worked behind the scenes
were just as responsible for our success as were the members of the cast. Naturally none of
us will ever forget the party which followed.
The months flew by and before we knew it we were caught in the flurry and confusion
of preparing for graduation. In those last days before we graduated we realized gravely
that this was the end of four years in which our lives had really begun. And so we go
sadly but proudly, leaving behind us a commendable record.
We the class of "fifty four" being of sound mind ?? bequeath to our underclassmen
the following tokens of our highest esteem:

We leave Mr. Galvin with a new lab. Hope no one blows it up.

times, Miss Teed.

PRIZE SPEAKER PERFORM
The curtain rose on May 1, 1953 for eight anxious and waiting junior Prize Speakers.
Here, after seven weeks of private lessons with Miss Alice Teed, they faced an expectant
audience. Each walked steadily toward center stage and then poured forth his selection.
The curtain finally fell and tears of joy were shed as each embraced the other. After what
seemed an interminable period the judges were ready with their decisions. The chairman
steeped forward. The moment had arrived. Wilma Lyman captured first prize with her
hilariously humorous narration of "Happy Birthday", by john Mason Brown. Second
prize was awarded to Carol Sulda for her poignantly beautiful interpretation of Martena
Tenny's "Intermission at the Monte Carlo Ballet". To Roger Crossman went the third
prize for his masterful portrayal of Jesse Stuart's "A Penny's Worth of Character". That
night with its excitement, tension, tears and laughter will never be forgotten by these

The baseball team was coached by Mr. Schuldt and assisted by Mr. Bordeau. Speaking
from the point of victories and losses, last years season was not too successful and the
present seniors feel as if they can avenge some of the defeats handed to us last season. On
the field they gave their best and experienced a hard and well played season. The seniors
on the squad are: Gene Sojka, Don Gelinas, and Don Kelly.
Under the able supervision of Mr. Putnam our small but complete track team won
many victories. These can be attributed to two things, first to the real ability of the boys
and second to their high spirit. Congratulations boys, you did a fine job! Seniors on the
track team are: Lewis Councilman, james Russell, Theodore LeClaire, Eugene Sojka,
Robert Desautels, Donald Gelinas, and Edward Wiberg.
