And yet , in a large measure , the success of this , he first year of the Wachusett Regional High School is due to one person , who dedicated himself to achieving this success. It is with this thought in mind — that of a dedicated man giving himself in a successful effort to coordinate the many facets of the first regional high school in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts — that we , the initial graduating class of the Wachusett Regional High School do hnmhly dedicate our first annual to Mr. Gordon M. Thomas , one principal. His genuine spirit of helpfulness , his wholehearted cooperation , his sound counsel — all these qualities hare guided us to the climax of our secondary school days. Our education — social and academic — has meant much to us all. How fortunate have we been to have had Mr. Thomas as the helmsman who has steered us safely to the shores of graduation!

Signed, sealed, and finally delivered, JOAN HODGSON JOHN DAVIS CYNTHIA THOMAS DIX DAVIS Class Prophecy I With apologies to " Dragnet” I This is the city — Holden. It is June, 1975. At 8:30 A.M. my partner, Tom Kelton, and I received an assignment from Chief of Police, Warner Gifford, to investigate the reported loss of a large number of pennies from the top drawer of the desk of a teacher at W.R.H.S. Driving up the hill, we saw Burton Mattson, who was in charge of directing traffic in the parking lot. We were met at the door by Principal James Scrim- geour, who, very nervous and flustered, ushered us to the physics lab, where Gloria Willis was teaching. Her assistants were Audrey Phelps, Laura Gammel, and Helen Alba. The assistant principal, Edward Paine, took over at this point, describing the theft to us. We were in- terrupted by the fire alarm and were forced to leave the building. The Fire Chief, David Berry, was inspecting the new Jacqueline Put-Anything-Out-or-Blow- It-Up Child Fire Extinguisher recently in- stalled in the building. Looking around the physics lab, we spied a broken bubble pipe lying on the floor. Was this a clue? It might have been dropped by a fresh- man, but we were just guessing. 10:00 A.M. We took a cab downtown, the driver of which we recognized as Lee Merlin. On a tip, we stopped at the new night club owned by Carole Adams and Mary Conway, where the sensational ballet dancer, Evangeline LeBlanc, was performing. We were told she wouldn ' t be there till show time but we might find her at Audrey Weller ' s beauty shop. 10:30 A.M. We arrived at the beauty shop. She wasn ' t there, but we recognized Beverly Paddock ' s picture, advertising the latest hair style, the peacock fan. We were glad to hear of her great success in modeling. With the help of the hair stylist, Howard Robinson, we finally found the dancer at Ann Fredrikson ' s girdle factory. She could give us no clue, say- ing that she had spent the week at the mink farm of Marilyn Gates and her partner, Janet Horne. From here we hunted up Beverley Oberg, who writes the gossip column in the daily paper. She gave us a hot tip. We took Tom Murphy ' s hackney through the park to the bank. We felt sure that Raymond Lyman, president of the bank, would know of any unusual influx of pennies. 2:00 P.M. We went to the bank, where we saw Harriet Gove writing out several checks, totalling a million dollars. Mr. Lyman ' s secretary, Mary Rasku, said that he wasn ' t there at the moment. 2:30 P.M. We checked in at head- quarters to see if there were any further developments. An attractive woman met us at the door, who introduced herself as Marlene Johnson, a model from the Hoaglund and Conrad Wig factory. Who- ever would have thought twenty years ago wigs would come back into style? Miss Johnson claimed that she had seen some boys acting suspiciously near the high school when she flew by on her Brownell Rocket. Having heard of the robbery from newscaster Janice Marion, she felt that perhaps her observations could be of use to us. Feeling that we had at least something to work on, we headed back to W.R.H.S. 2:38 P.M. Arrived at W.R.H.S. Sud- denly I saw our first real clue, for lying right in front of the main entrance were three pennies. Taking care not to smudge any possible prints, we took them to the police lab, where Lillian Stevens, (our chief analysis engineer) identified the coins as part of the missing loot. On the coins were particles of sand that could have come from no other place than a greenhouse. We rushed to the biology department, where Joyce Howe, a lecturer from the African Department of Ichthyology, was giving a talk on the facial expressions of the goldfish when hungry. A thorough search of the green- house, however, yielded nothing. 2:51 P.M. Since we were sure that the pennies were buried in a flowerpot that had recently been released from the greenhouse, we proceeded to check the list of recent purchases. The first place we visited was the home of John Ford, a great horticulturist, who proudly dis- played the Egyptian violet he had pur- chased. Searching the pot we found nothing. Next we visited the Cummings and Christo Wild Animal Farm, which had recently purchased a small palm for the homesick giraffe ' s cage. Asking the mana- ger, Jerry Fisler, for permission to enter the cage was no problem, but getting past the keeper, Janet Rice, proved to be more than we had bargained for. Finally, after assuring her we meant no harm to " Flash, " her pet giraffe, we were al- lowed to enter and search the palm for any clues to the missing pennies — another false lead. 3:01 P.M. We arrived at the new Wachusett Hospital to check an azalea plant that had recently been given to one of the patients. In the hall we met Dr. Nadine Carey, who led us to the diet department, where Ruth Cousins, the head nurse, took us to the azalea — another false lead. 3:17 P.M. Having exhausted every possible lead, we returned to W.R.H.S. for a room-to-room examination. Our search started with the art department. Alice Taylor, in charge of futuristic art, could give us no clues but suggested the chemistry department, where pennies could have been dissolved in a new sub- stance called Myer ' s-lf-You-Don ' t-Like-lt- Dissolve-lt-Acid, named after the inventor. But Phyllis Clark, the instructor, could give us absolutely no help. From there we went to the gymnastics class, where Patricia Child was giving instruction in wall climbing and hanging from the girders by a finger. She also could offer us no help. 4:03 P.M. As we checked out of the main office with Mary Londergan, I spied in a large flowerpot on the desk of Miss Ostergard, a Venus ' -flytrap. Noticing that the plant was sagging heavily, I proceeded to open one of the traps. Lo and behold, there were our missing pennies! — Case Closed — Robert Stowe Marcia Gordon Beverly Powell Carole Adams Mrs. Castendyk — " Goo d school position! " I don ' t feel well!

MEMBERS OF THE CAST The major dramatic production of the year was the senior play, presented under the expert supervision of Mr. Barker. The play, chosen by members of the class, was What A Life by Clifford Goldsmith. This play ran on Broadway for several years and was the original play which started the Henry Aldrich series on radio and television. Members of the cast and pro- duction crew worked vigorously to make this a most successful project. The play was presented Thursday and Friday evenings, April 14 and 15.

In the next game, with Notre Dame of Fitchburg, the Wachusett eleven had little trouble picking up a 26-0 vic- tory. In the contest with West- boro, on the fi rst dry day of the season, Wachusett ' s passing attack worked brilliantly to chalk up a third win, 40-13. Auburn proved to be the only team that could stop the Mountaineers aerials, and the VARSIT home team went down to a 1 9-0 defeat. However, led by great line work on the part of Jim Miles, the team bounced back and ripped Uxbridge, 33-12. Wachusett’s passing attack, led by Paharik, Wright and Deck- er, gained the fifth victory — a 34-6 victory over Millbury. The V F00 Mountaineers, keyed up for their last game, went all out and came home with a 39-12 triumph over Mary E. Wells High. Three boys were good enough to make " All County " — Jim Miles, Bud Wright and Pudge Paharik. TBALL First Row, left to right: R. Goodnow, R. Miles, P. Ruggles, J. Decker, R. Henderson, D.

Jackola, J. McGuiggan. The Wachusett Mountaineers, assumed to have a very green team this season, ended with a highly successful first year, thanks to the hard work of Coach Sell and the drive of the team. The team got off to a bad start, losing to Webster, 53-46. Bounc- ing back, however, with Bud Wright showing the way with his 14 points, they turned back a bigger Leominster team, 53-43. Then, with a little more experience under their belts, the Mountain- eers revenged their first loss to Webster by a 58-48 score. Deck- er with 20, Ford with 11, and Paharik with 10 were high scorers. The Blackstone Valley League got under way, and Wachusett soon had its first victory, as it easily whipped Northbridge, 48- 24, holding them to five baskets. Led by Joe Decker and Pudge Paharik with 18 and 16 points re- spectively, the Mountaineers made it four in a row as they turned back a scrappy Uxbridge team, 55-51. With Decker, Paharik and Wright showing the way, the Mountaineers picked up a 42-35 victory over Millbury. Then came the game every member of the squad had waited for, Shrews- bury. With great teamwork the Mountaineers squeaked out a 43- 39 victory. In the game with Grafton, Pudge Paharik got a hot hand and picked up 20 points to score a 58-46 victory. Then, in the game with Auburn, Wachusett had one of those nights when nothing goes right. With Stevie Bennett hitting for 29 points, Auburn dealt the home team its second defeat, 66-53. Wachusett then travelled to Westboro, where everybody play- ed and everybody scored to achieve a 65-51 triumph. With Bud Wright ' s drives going for 1 9 points the Mountaineers easily chalked up a 65-58 victory over North- bridge. Uxbridge came from a 20- point deficit and put up a terrific struggle but, led by Wright, Deck- er, and Oldakowski, Wachusett made it 11-2 by a 69-65 score. The Green and White then played host to a hot Millbury club, in which the home team had to score 20 consecutive points to win, 53- 40. Paharik got 17 and Ford 14. Riding high, the team travelled to Shrewsbury and put up a good fight but to no avail; number 3 was lost by a 60-52 count. Wa- chusett rebounded, however, led by Paharik with 17, and easily tip- ped Grafton, 55-42. Seeking re- venge against the only team not beaten, the Mountai neers played host to Auburn and suffered a 55- 51 loss. The last game of the reg- ular season took the team to West- boro, where Bjorkland and Howe showed the way to a 60-42 vic- tory. Wachusett then received an in- vitation to participate in the Clark Tournament and accepted. The first game was with Millbury, who was knocked off, 65-55, as Wright hit 11 and Ford 10. Auburn also won in its first game, so the com- petition was down to the finals — Wachusett vs. Auburn. The game was a thriller right down to the final whistle. At the end the Mountaineers lost, 41-36. High scorers were Ford with 12 and Wright with 9. BUD AMI DON EDOIE CM-DAKOWSKI J. V. BASKETBALL — First Row, left to right: H. Lane, E. Jeffrey, M.

Varsity Basketball The girls ' Varsity basketball team had an excellent season with nine wins and three losses. Nancy and Sally Fletcher were chosen co-captains of the team. The club had three outstanding guards — Janet Trask, Joan Forsell and Shirley Johnson, whose effort and determination won a number of games. Other members of the team were Joyce Howe, Diane Webster, Shirley DeLuca, Grace Tambolleo, Joyce Johnson, Myrna Brinck, Beverly Johnson, Constance Baker, Gail Price, Karen Manty, Carol Majewski and Patricia Hiney. The team will be sorry to lose three seniors — Janet Trask, Nancy Fletcher and Joyce Howe, who have played together for three years. The Junior Varsity, which developed info a very talented club, won all its games. The last victory, won in a two-minute overtime, was especially exciting. Mrs. Moulton and Miss Kuninski contributed some fine coaching to the two squads. Beryl Pearson and Mary Martel I i put in a lot of time and work as managers.

Badminton Champions Won by the Junior Class Marie Speckman and Sally Fletcher Vmity Hockey... The girls’ Varsity hockey team had a remarkable season for a newly organized club. They won all their games except two, which were scoreless ties. It is significant to notice that no other team scored against the Wachusett hockey team all season. Nancy Fletcher and Shirley Johnson as captains sparked the team to many vic- tories. Valuable players, who con- tributed much to the team, in- cluded Marcia Gordon, Donna Jensen, Carol Watts, Sally Fletch- er, Joan Forsell, Eleanor Reed, Constance Baker, Shirley Johnson, Beverly Johnson, Nancy Fletcher and Dorothy Mayo. Promising players were Carol Majewski, Karen Manty and Joyce Larson, who, as substitutes, helped win many games. Marcia Gordon, Donna Jensen and Nancy Fletch- er will be leaving the team this year. These girls have been the core of the team and will be great- ly missed. The Junior Varsity possessed some promising players even though they didn’t win all of their games. Praise should go to Maryanne Dowd, Mirrless Underwood, Joyce Howe and Martha Elliot, who did outstanding jobs assisting the teams as managers. A great deal of credit for the victorious season goes to Mrs. Moulton, the Varsity coach, and Miss Kuninski, the Junior Varsity coach. First Row, left to right: E. Hull, C. Donway, P. Hiney, N.
