We have felt the impact of the world beyond Wellesley High School Therefore, our attitudes toward government and life in general have become cynical, mistrustful, and despairing. The world we are entering after high school is uncertain, so we look to each other for assurance and to retain a grip on reality. The result has been a reawakening of “Red Raider Pride " as we have stirred out of our past apathy and begun to share our ideas, opinions, and common goals. Throughout this entire yearbook with particular emphasis in the following pages, we have attempted to portray the impact of this year’s events and our reactions to them.

Within its walls of brick and mortar, an artificial world was created, consisting of books, students, teachers, and activities. Students were separated from real life situations, living in their uto¬ pian world of academia, where the main concern of students was a successful report card. In the 1970’s, though, these barriers began to break down, and today, in 1974, they are being broken down even further. Now, the students are finding themselves becoming an active segment of the community. Consequently, there is interaction between high school students and the wider world of the community. New possibilities have opened up for students through programs such asi work! experience, work study, alternate semester, independent study, distributive educa¬ tion . . . These different experiences transcend and complement the traditional intellectual training. Academia is still primarily the function of Wellesley High School, but the importance of outside experiences has finally been realized. Today, we, as students, have the opportunity to interact in the best of both worlds. In the following pages, we will explore these developments.

Pike from Wellesley to Boston brings a world of theatre, history, art, fine restaurants, world- renowned universities, government, and medicine. Exciting, cos¬ mopolitan, and enriching are words that describe our city. Histori¬ cal monuments mark this birthplace of America; Faneuil Hall, Hay- market Square, The Old North Church, Paul Revere’s House, and others. The old is cofnplimented with the new; the City Hall, Pru¬ dential Center, and the John Hancock Building. The smells and sounds of Boston Harbor and the taste of our famous seafood; the presidents we have produced from Adams to Kennedy; the delight of Arthur Fiedler’s Boston Pops; and the charm of Beacon Hill are familiar and special to all of us. Boston — an ideal city for students to extend their educational experiences beyond the walls of Wellesley High School. 15 We, as the departing senior class, of the Wellesley Senior High School, feel we owe a great deal to our community. Wellesley is not just another town where our homes are located: it is where we go to school, participate in activities, and where we live. Wellesley, as a community, has had a profound impact on all of us, especially through the many organiza¬ tions that are designed to help residents, such as Friendly Aid, Hotline, Multi-Service Organi¬ zation, Human Relations Service, and the vari¬ ous church groups. People in Wellesley are active and inter¬ ested, and therefore become concerned about major local issues such as the proposed addi¬ tion to the Senior High School. The discussion on this issue was widespread and controver¬ sial, affecting nearly all of us. We, as students, have the opportunity to view such debates in a form of government unique to New England: the town meeting. We realize that Wellesley is not " just another suburb” of Boston. We are a community that has three colleges located here; Wellesley, Babson, and Mass. Bay. Because of this, we have a large population of young people and many cultural services provided by the col¬ leges. Students with a special interest have the opportunity to pursue it in greater depth through college courses.

But, we feel that the community at some point must recognize that not all of us are college-bound, therefore, we should have a high school strong in all areas (e.g., vocational training, career preparation, etc.). During our short stay at the high school, we have seen these types of programs develop and become a more ingrained part of the high school curriculum; for example, Work-Study, Independent Study, Distributive Education, Alternate Semester, and Y.E.S. After graduation from high school, when we enter a wider world of experience, we will come to realize that Wellesley is a mini-world, a reflection of the suburban middle class experi¬ ence in America.

We gave you Louis, Johnson, Hayes, Jesse Owens, " Sugar Ray. " But black is mud and thunderstorms And evil deeds and boogeymen, While white is angel food and clouds And purity and heaven. We invented the cotton planter, Fire escapes, the shoe-last machine. The synchronour multiplex railway telegraph, The automatic lubricator. Electromagnetic brake apparatus, Golf tees, potato chips and lawn mowers. But black is mud and thunderstorms And evil deeds and boogeymen, While white is angel food and clouds And purity and heaven. Dr. Charles Drew, whose research Led to blood banks, saving lives, Bled to death when a white hospital refused him. Dr. Martin Luther King preached Non-violence, received the Nobel Peace Prize And was shot to death by a white man . But black is mud and thunderstorms And evil deeds and boogeymen, While white is angel food and clouds And purity and heaven. But black is also new-plowed earth, And licorice and chocolate pudding. Black is also ebony — Seal skin and velvet dresses. Black is mystery and caviar, Ripe olives and eagle feathers. Black is softness, gentle midnight, Summer evenings bathed in starlight. While white, when blind to all the rest, Is Klan, decay and death. Metco Means Experiences in Two Communities: Boston and Wellesley Busing is . . . The 6:00 alarm ringing and the " My, My, My’s” of David Adams till 7:00 when you hustle for your bus stop just when " Keep on Truckin’’ comes on. It ' s the dawning of the morning, the snow white in the day, and the dark when you return home again. It’s the bumps and shuttles of the Riverside trolley when you missed the bus. It’s the lost friendships only to be regained on weekends. It’s the cry for a warm ebony hand, only to echo in shallow white-washed halls. It’s discovering that not everyone knows you ' re Black. It ' s the warm womb of the METCO office and Mrs. Ramsey asking “Don ' t you have a class? " It ' s Robin telling a corny joke and Worthy being the only one to laugh. It’s a conversation between Robin, Cheryl, and Arthur turning into a mass argument. It’s Luis’ " Woo!” and Robbie ' s " You’re -— right Luis. " It ' s Arlene’s soft, sweet voice bellowing, " Check it out. " It ' s Rosemary ' s eyes and Walter ' s hat. It’s Gary’s head and Joel’s latest invented comb. It ' s Tibits, Guy, Karen, Jimmie, Shelia, Kenny, Freddy, Teddy, Judith, Sandra, Deane, Derek,. . . It’s a shadow in all the light. But most of all, busing is an education for Blacks, so that future Black generations won’t have to be bused.

Even in Tears, There Is Joy in Being Black Being Black not only means being self-supporting, but independent as well. Being Black is being proud, and knowing that we the peoples of color are America and without our forefa¬ thers it couldn’t exist. Being Black is knowing our identities through the his¬ tory in this country. It is conditioning oneself and one’s mind to attain a sense of awareness; Black awareness. Being Black means beauty in the mind as well as the soul; we believe in beauty, Black beauty. Being black is knowing that it took the toil, sweat, and blood of our people to make America function.

Living in Two Wellesley’s A.B.C. program completed its second year. We are all busy with our studies, our chores, and our social life. We are pretty much accustomed to Wellesley by now but we still prefer our city surroundings back home. The new girls in the program, Anna Emanuel, Car¬ drenia Ellis, and Tona Dickerson, are all handling their new situa¬ tion quite well. Anna has been working in the school library dur¬ ing her free studies while Cardre¬ nia has been spending some of her afternoons joining in some of the Junior Red Cross activities. Tona spends some of her free time playing basketball after school. The girls from last year, Becky Vazquez, Cassandra Glo¬ ver, Alta Jimenez, and Denise Gore, are also busy with their second year in Wellesley. Becky, our only senior, is occupied with her afternoon job at E. A. Davis. The rest of her free time is spent pondering her plans. The three juniors, Cassandra, Alta, and Denise are also concerned with their plans for college as well as participating in after school activ¬ ities. Our study hours take up the rest of our evening time. Our house is situated at 12 Norfolk Terrace, and it is always busy. We always have something to do whether it’s doing our chores or just listening to some good soul music! Our weekends are devoted to our social lives. We always have something planned whether it’s going to the movies, a dance or just having some friends over. Sundays we usually spend with our “Host Families.” These are families who live in Wellesley and who volunteer to take the girls in their homes and become close friends. The " Host Fami¬ lies " usually plan an activity for that day with their special girl or they just spend a quiet afternoon at home. We are all happy to be here and we hope our future years in Wellesley will start as well as this one has.

Under his supervision, students gain valuable work experience while at the same time continuing their high school education. The primary purpose of the program is to help encour¬ age students to obtain a high school diploma. The students enrolled in this program have their schedules specially arranged so that they attend school in the morning; and in the afternoon they are employed in Wellesley or a neighboring com¬ munity. Periodically, the students are evaluated on the quality of their work during the year by their employers. Due to the tre¬ mendous success of the Work Study Program, the number of students enrolled has increased annually to approximately 60 this year. Mary Jane Brazil at Wool worth’s.

Diane Nicolai at the Wool Shop. Debby Lanza and Betsy Strickland at Olkens. Distributive Education is one of our newest programs at Wellesley High. Offered on a limited basis in 1972-73, it is now fully operational with 37 stu¬ dents enrolled. DE is a cooperative course in Retailing, Merchandising, and related management. All the stu¬ dents are employed part time in Retail¬ ing occupations making DE a special¬ ized field of study. Students are “train¬ ees” at their work stations and are evaluated periodically by their training sponsor and Mr. Conaty. Distributive Education students are a broad cross section of the junior-senior student body with a large number of students furthering their education at college and business schools. Classroom activities are entirely geared to the functions of marketing with great stress placed on sales tech¬ niques, consumer behavior, principles of advertising, merchandise display, and buying techniques. Students are expected to obtain their part time jobs, although the DE teacher does offer job leads and employment counseling. With the large numbers of people employed in the Distribution process today, DE is a most timely and relevant course at Wellesley High School. Richard Roberson at the Wellesley News Agency.

Deal with a suicide threat? Name a dozen classics in Chinese lit¬ erature? Explain planetary nebula? More than eighty Wellesley High stu¬ dents are acquiring these skills in vol¬ unteer work ranging from hospitals to offices, from art studios to pet shops, and from college campuses to the State House. The greater Boston com¬ munity has become our educational playground, where academic credit can be earned in the pursuit of highly individual interests. Bob Malley edits his film. PattyThibodeaustudies Indian Literature with Mrs. Goddard. “I wanted to take second year shorthand but I couldn’t fit it into a regular schedule. How¬ ever, I could do it as an Inde¬ pendent Study, which does not require formal scheduling. The classroom lessons are recorded on tapes which I take down in shorthand. The les¬ sons include theory, speed building, and transcription. It is possible to keep up with the class by spending the appro¬ priate amount of time per week.” Ellen Carney Ellen Carney practices her shorthand. ’’The best aspect is working with the kids, and seeing the difference between 7th and 9th graders, and ourselves. Giving them an appreciation of history, see¬ ing them grow, and comparing the differences between my illusions of being a 9th grader, and what it really is like.” Dana Young i i Dana Young teaches Ancient History to a 9th grade class. Alternate Semester Provides Seniors With an Alternative to Conventional Education Nancy Hankin, Martha Turner, Mr. Hadlock, Hilary Winslow, Carrie Wilson. This year, under the direction of Mr. Wayne Hadlock, a new pro¬ gram was added to the curriculum of Wellesley High: Alternate Semester. As an alternative to formal education, Alternate Semes¬ ter offers the senior student opportunities in education and experi¬ ence not available in the classroom. The program enables the stu¬ dent to have a greater understanding of his environment by dis¬ covering and learning from people whose values and lifestyles are different from his. Fifteen selected seniors met weekly during a fall seminar to dis¬ cuss the planning, housing and arranging of employment. The actual program began in January for a fifteen week period. Ten weeks were devoted to individual working and living experiences and a total of four to five weeks involved group activities and an evaluation of the program. The Regional Advisory Council to the State Board of Education As recipients of current educational programming, Regional Student Councils advise the State Board of Education and the Department of Education about their educational needs and concerns. Each spring, the elections for this position are held during the same week as the elec¬ tions for class officers. Sally Whalen was elected as Wellesley High’s delegate and Dave Rosenberg as the alternate to this position. As members of the Greater Bos¬ ton Council, Sally and Dave worked on such problems as the confidentiality of students’ records and students’ rights and responsibilities. As the publicity Ma¬ son for one of the Greater Boston Coun¬ cils, Sally also worked with WBZ’s radio show, “Talk to the People.” David Rosenberg and Sally Whalen. 25 FAPS Council Discusses Several Aspects of School Policy The FAPS council (Faculty, Administration, Parents, and Students) provides an opportunity for discussion of school policies and enables faculty, administration and parents to present their concerns to a representative student group. The FAPS Council has no power to establish rules, but after issues have been discussed by the council, their ideas and recommendations are then reviewed and evaluated by the administration when formulating school policies. The main topics discussed this past year were student evaluation of teachers, seminars, parent-student communi¬ cation problems, and the proposed addition to the senior high.

The Parents, Teachers, and Students Association provides a means to explore mutual concerns between teachers and parents. The PTSA meets annually for three evening pro¬ grams. The first meeting in the fall of the school year is considered an “open house.” This gives the parents an opportunity to meet the teachers, and observe or hear explanations of the courses offered at the high school. During, mid-winter, the next meeting is scheduled to dis¬ cuss special topics that have arisen during the year. These topics may be introduced by FAPS concerning various aspects of the school curriculum or activities. In the spring session, parents discuss briefly school busi¬ ness, but it is used primarily to elect officers for the coming year. In addition to all that occurs during these meetings, the PTSA has one other concern which is the scholarship fund. The fall dues of two dollars are used for the operation of the association and a scholarship which is awarded to a senior. The P.T.S.A. officers. Work Experience Matthew Gorman Youth Employment Service Y.E.S., the initials of which mean Youth Employment Service, serves as an interim between residents of Wellesley and stu¬ dents interested in job opportunities. Senior Patricia Furdon handles the numerous calls coming from residents needing jobs done, ranging from clerical work to babysitting, washing windows to office cleaning.

The Student Advisory Board serves as a link of communi¬ cation between the students and the school committee. The Student Advisory Board consists of two seniors; Kevin Dona¬ hue (chairman), and Maureen Maher (secretary); junior Mar¬ cie Greenfield; sophomore, Mike Brown; and 9th grader, Heidi Fernsebner. The elected student representatives meet Maureen Maher, Heidi Fernsebner, Marcie Greenfield. twice a month with the school committee to voice their opin¬ ions on issues ranging from the state of the Bradford to Jun¬ ior High rules. While their opinions are not always conclusive in forming school policies, they do keep the school commit¬ tee abreast with current trends in student viewpoints. Thinking Generates Questions There are two standards for anything we do: the ideal, and the actual. Each of us tries to perform nearer to the ideal, although we never attain it. So it is with our school work. We know all too well that drudgery, boredom, frustration, and uselessness that are too often characteristic of “studying.” Yet, we must remember the joy of discovering something new about our world that we had always questioned; the satisfaction of mastering part of a foreign lan¬ guage or a new concept; the pride of turning out a good paper. We must remember that we are part of a process where step by step the whole of the world becomes apparent; a process in which we learn a concept to ponder and question, and from our questioning, we are capable of learning more. The learning process has its moments of frustration but also moments of accomplishment, of wonder, and of satisfaction. Dave Birney Academics Editor What Are the Functions of Our Meetings with parents, discussions with students, appear¬ ances before the school committee, preparing the budget, and providing leadership for the faculty, are some of the var¬ ied and demanding tasks Mr. Rokicki experiences during the course of the year. With the secretarial details tended to by Mrs. Steeves, Mr. Rokicki finds a full calendar each day and several evenings per week. With such a demanding sched¬ ule, he finds relaxation with his family on weekends by play¬ ing golf, skiing, piloting small aircraft, and visiting various sections of New England. As a native Mid-Westerner and Purdue graduate, he has found this area of the country inter¬ esting. He stated recently, “For whatever reason or combination of reasons, this academic year thus far has been the most pleasant one I can recall in terms of staff, student and paren¬ tal cooperation and willingness to work together for the bet¬ terment of all. My positive perceptions of what is happening extend beyond the confines of the school and into the com¬ munity as well.“ Mr. Vasaturo chats with Mr. Touhey. Mr. Carbone works on computer scheduling. Mr. Rokicki meets informally with Dave Birney and Sharon Skelly. Administrators? Mr. Carbone The blue pass that states “report to office to see Mr. Car¬ bone or Mr. Vasaturo at the end of the period " reflects what students often view as the major role of the vice principals: disciplinarians. But, students rarely see Mr. Carbone involved in his “pet project " of computer scheduling. He orchestrates the schedules of nearly 1500 students and over 100 teachers, by juggling rooms, times, course require¬ ments, and special programs. A testimony to his ability is the fact that over 90% of students who desire certain courses find that their needs are met. Arranging field trips, developing the Program of Studies, and supervising the publication of the student and faculty handbooks are among Mr. Vasaturo’s many duties. Also, he c onsults frequently with advisors and student leaders who are involved in extra-curricular activities. So, the next time you receive a “blue pass,” remember that Mr. Carbone and Mr. Vasaturo are performing only one duty of many.

Of all recent changes in the high school curriculum, the introduction of English electives to the program of studies has had the greatest impact on the largest number of stu¬ dents. The overall reaction of students to the opportunity they now have to choose their own English courses has been very positive. There is a wide range of choices available from the highly demanding and academic offerings (e.g. Literary Criticism and The Relationship of Art, Music and Literature) to moder¬ ately challenging courses (e.g. The Current Scene and Prac¬ tical English). Students are able to devise a program suited to their individual needs, talents, and interests. For example, Drama Workshop, The Creative Process in Writing and Intro¬ duction to Broadcasting are all designed to prepare and develop students in areas of special interest to them. In all of its courses, the English Department seeks to help “. . . students learn to discover themselves, to live with themselves, and to direct their ideas and feelings to activities that may enrich their minds. . .” WILBURY CROCKETT, Department Head KATHLEEN LESTITION PAT ROSENFIELD ELLEN LEVINE LAWRENCE FISCHER SUSAN ALEXANDER DENNIS McCORMICK JANICE BARRETT GODDARD MARTHA FISKE RONNA WAYNE HADLOCK SUSAN BLOOM RALPH GRIFFIN CAROLYN FITZPATRICK BROOKS GODDARD Fred Connors proves that even seniors have to study.

The Fine Arts For some students, the Art department is more than a department in the school: it is a way of life. Once enrolled in the art courses, the students discover that they are faced with challenges that exceed those offered by academic activ¬ ity. Each art course becomes a medium to develop intellectual curiosity, creativity, humaneness, sensitivity, flexibility, self- identity, and self-image. The only shortcoming of the Art Department is the inadequate facilities. SALVATORE SIMONE WILLARD GOW, Department Head MIRIAM STODDARD JACK RUTLEDGE GEORGE McGOFF JOAN LANZA Once agai n, the music department had a busy start to the 1 973-4 school year with the organization of a 19-piece orchestra for “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown,” a suc¬ cessful musical production and an unusual event for the fall of Wellesley High. Thanksgiving marked the end of the marching band season. This year, the ranks of the band included a color guard, and six girls bearing flags of red, white, and black. Intricate drills added to the fanfare and the impressive overall effect of the band. The band, orchestra, and chorus are becoming well-travelled organizations with their annual exchange trips. Last year the destinations were Portland, Maine, and Watchung, New Jersey. This year, the groups will travel to Clinton, Connecticut. The annual fall concert was the debut for the music department. With a wide variety of music, ten groups displayed their talents. DONALD SULLIVAN ROBERT DAVIS RICHARD DREW, Department Head Even in today’s technological age, the primary means to communicate ideas is through the written word. In fact, the ability to read rapidly is as crucial as any other learning skill. Recognizing this, the Reading Department seeks to provide courses in basic reading and also speed reading courses for those who wish to improve their ability. 8 KATHLEEN GORDON Department Head 37 New Electives Offered This Year in They know more than VeDlen aooui leisure.

Over the past two years, sum¬ mer workshops have served to explore new approaches and to develop specific courses which seem to fit the needs of students and at the same time keep pace with current trends in the field. The new Sophomore offerings on more specific aspects of world history and culture are the first major outgrowth of departmental revision with course offerings ranging from such topics as significant leaders and issues in history, to a literary approach to history and a cultural approach to selected areas of the world. The second phase of revision will go into effect during the next school year and will consist of a modified elective program in United States History including such topics as foreign policy, reform movements and minority groups, the American West, 20th century Amer¬ ica and American military history as well as the traditional survey courses. In addition, the Senior electives have also undergone some revision which reflects the on going and changing nature of these courses which deal primarily with aspects of the Social Sciences other than history — political science, sociology and cultural anthropology. It is the desire of the department to provide as flexible and broad a program as possible for students within the practical limitations imposed by scheduling and to make maximum useof teacher expertise in their specialized areas of interest.

" Ken Hill. 40 The Business Education department mainly fulfills the needs of those students who are completing their formal education with high school by providing many of the basic skills, such as typing, stenography, use of business machines, etc., necessary for success in the world of busi¬ ness. Because they have many of the machines found in a modern office, this allows for a simulated business environ¬ ment. They also provide for the college bound student who wishes to learn typing. In short, the department is preparing students for the future. Patty Pacquette learns to use the business department machines. The Industrial Arts program consists of three major areas of course offer¬ ings: Technical Drawing and Graphics, Woodworking, and Machine Shop. Over 100 students in the past few years have been turned away from courses because of the lack of facilities, space, and equipment needed to accommodate larger numbers of students. Those interested in auto mechanics must work on their cars in the courtyard area. Increased student interest in the Industrial Arts courses can be traced to a variety of reasons; the various job opportunities now available in technical accupations, the desire that students have to better understand the techno- ogical environment of the 70’s, an exploration of individual talents and abili¬ ties, a need to develop the skills and knowledge in preparation for a chosen ield of work, the growth in appreciation for good design and workmanship, and finally, the surge of pride that the craftsman feels when his project is :ompleted.

Cindy Lee Math Department Offers Two New Courses In accordance with one of the goals of flexibility in the Mathematics Department, there is a wide selection of mathe¬ matics courses for students. Among the choices, students now find Matrix Algebra and Probability and Statistics. Both courses are offered twice a week for the school year. Stu¬ dents may take either or both courses concurrently with another math course. Matrix Algebra is a course which typifies a way of enhanc¬ ing one’s understanding of mathematics. Students take some mathematics which they know, think about it in a new light and interpret it in a different way so that the mathemat¬ ics can work in a new context. Probability and Statistics makes use of some familiar alge¬ bra, fundamental set theory and probability theory, along with statistical reference to formulate a course which has application in such fields as economics, business, education, and in the social and physical sciences. Anyone interested in computers has appreciated the new location of the computer room on the third floor of the wing near the math department office. Students have enjoyed the free access, availability, and use of the computer. Another plus this year has been the innovation of the math seminars for students and teachers. Guest speakers have presented various topics in the seminars and the encourag¬ ing response has been a factor in the proposal that these seminars be continued.

Resources to Students In a world that is rapidly changing, science must be taught in such a way as to assist students in evaluating the impact that science and technology has on their life styles. The Sci¬ ence Department teaches the basic sciences (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) at three to four different levels that are consistent with the needs, interests, and abilities of the students. In an effort to broaden its course offerings, to enhance interest in the Science Program, and to humanize its offer¬ ings, the Science Department includes among its more recent offerings Psychology and Advanced Placement Biol¬ ogy. The nature of these courses is such that they tend to humanize the sciences while at the same time they give the student other insights into the meaning of science. Through such efforts as these, students are receiving an education that will enable them to survive, cope, and comprehend the natural world in which they live. An experiment in Chem Lab requires steady hands. The library is always there but not everyone knows all that it offers. It has 12,000 books, 135 magazine subscriptions, 8 newspapers, many records, reference books and microfilms. It is a wealth of innumberable facts for the report due yester¬ day; it is a world that catalogues people’s imaginations, from William Shakespeare to Ray Bradbury. The library is “today " on a newspaper’s front page; “yesterday” in a historical ref¬ erence book and the answer to the question on factual information.

Traditionally, the foreign language department has been defined as a part of the school curriculum that prepares stu¬ dents for college requirements in a language. Recently, how¬ ever, Mr. Caefer said, " We are trying to change our image.” With new audio visual materials, different approaches in classes, and special tutorial and self-help programs, the department is trying to meet the needs of more students. In addition to teaching the students to read and write in their chosen language, the department needs to teach oral com¬ prehension and speaking skills, to explore foreign cultures and environments, and to provide an enjoyable academic experience for the students who are enrolled in all the courses offered.

They offer many electives and vary them frequently to include as wide a variety as possible of physical education experiences. Stu¬ dents may choose from archery, yoga, folk dance , field hockey, basketball, softball, badminton, tennis, dance and many other courses that will assist them in developing skills for team, dual, and individual activities. And take that,. . . and that! Jon Haycock, Dave Cook, Rick Jarvis. Nursing services provided by Mrs. Ray and her assistants include home visits, parent conferences, teacher confer¬ ences, major accident care, individual health care for the physically handicapped, and supportive counseling on indi¬ vidual students’ problems. The greatest lack is the absence of any courses in health education, because of lack of space. The basic skills in homemaking, such as knowledge in the areas of Foods and Clothing provide the core for the courses offered in Home Arts. Over the past few years, the enrollment of boys in the Food Seminar has noticeably increased. The students also focus on two other areas of interest; consumer education and career training.

A testimony to the efforts of our guidance counselors in recent years has been the extraordinarily high percentage (over 80%) of Wellesley High graduates who have entered college. However, the role of the counselor is changing and taking on a fresh focus under the direction of our new Guid¬ ance Department chairman, Mr. Archer Harman. Closer con¬ tact with the Human Relations Service, expansion of career counseling, and supporting counseling with parents and teachers are additional priorities this year.

Learning takes many forms; it is more than the process experienced in classroom encounters. An individual also learns through close interaction with friends and advisers. This type of learning experience is never lost because it transcends the boundaries of facts, figures and solely intellectual pursuits. This special interaction takes the form of learning about such intangibles as friendship, loyalty and the shared successes of organizations and clubs. The combination of these valuable expe¬ riences, growing from an interaction with each other creates posi¬ tive feelings in an atmosphere of friendship and concern. Francesca Villa Activities Editor Wellesleyan Staff Works Hard to Produce a Fresh Approach With the ' 74 Yearbook 1974 marks a year of change for the Welles¬ leyan. A fall trip to the Columbia Yearbook Conference in New York resulted in many fresh ideas and a new outlook fa our yearbook. Underclassmen have been included for the first time ever with individual portraits. The divi¬ sion titles have been changed from the tradi¬ tional ones to new and original ones, e.g., Vital¬ ity instead of Sports and Inquiry combines Fac¬ ulty and Academics. The Editas and Staff have spent many long hours trying to produce a yearbook that reflects our theme, Impact, and captures the spirit of this year, 1973-74, for the underclass¬ men as well as the departing seniors.

One need not be elected to become a member. The organization is open to any interested student. The group has become an active one in the past few years. Their pro¬ posed alternate semester program has become a reality. This year, the Student Gov¬ ernment’s main project was the compilation of a student telephone book. In addition, every year the Student Government contributes to Globe Santa, the Morgan Memorial Goodwill Program, and sponsors the Variety Show, and Student Seminar Day. One of the high points of the Student Government ' s activities was a 1950 ' s hop featuring Myles Connor. The group also raised money by holding an old book and record sale.

The purpose of the American Field Service is to provide a living and learn¬ ing experience for foreign students in a family environment. This year, the Wellesley Chapter of AFS welcomed two exchange students to Wellesley. They were Etty Said from Indonesia and Mike Villmow from Ger¬ many. Wellesley High sent two of its students, Eliot Powell and Nick Burns, to Belgium and Luxembourg, respec¬ tively, for three months last summer. To raise money to meet expenses, the club holds its annual submarine sale one weekend in the fall. This year, Wellesley hosted AFS students living in the Eastern Massachusetts area for a weekend. The students stayed at members’ houses. Much was learned through the AFS motto, “Walk Together, Talk Together.” AFS Students: Etty Said and Mike Villmow Eliot Powell Nick Burns Future Teachers of America Explore Career Opportunities The Future Teachers of America is a club for students interested in explor¬ ing the teaching profession. Members spent time each week assisting in classes at St. Paul ' s School and tutor¬ ing individual students in the public elementary schools. They also attended activities of interest at local teaching colleges and visited special¬ ized schools such as Perkins Institute. In addition, the club supported pro¬ jects such as Ride a Bike for the Retarded and last year ' s campaign for Cerebral Palsy. Row 1: Laura Visco, Kathy Forrester, Andrea Hooker, April Bell.

At Medfield State Hospital, they talked with the patients and organized recreational activities. At the Protestant Guild for the Blind they worked with both blind and multi¬ handicapped students in various activ¬ ities, such as shopping trips, over¬ nights, swimming sessions, and sports. The club also sponsored activi¬ ties for nursing homes, hospitals, and the Charles River Workshop, as well as working at the Wellesley Bloodmo- biles.

The Olympians, more commonly known as J.C.L., are a chapter of the National Junior Classical League. J.C.L. is one of the largest and most active organizations in the school. Meetings are held the first Monday of every month. Activities include the annual slave auction, Olympic games, a Roman Saturnalia banquet and a tra¬ ditional initiation ceremony. In recent years, J.C.L. has sponsored several trips to England, Switzerland and Italy. This year, J.C.L., sponsored by The New England Cultural Organization, planned a trip to Athens. The Junior Classical League wishes to thank Mary Keenan, founder of the Wellesley J.C.L. Chapter, who through numerous years of painstaking devo¬ tion sponsored and built the Olympi¬ ans.

The students broadcast in the cafeteria during the school day and into every room during homeroom period. Two serious problems still exist: a lack of funding and a transmitter.

During the past few years, the paper has fallen into debt, which has reduced the number of pages in the newspaper. The small core of devoted staff members have tried to combine coverage of school activities and literary material into the paper which is published bi-monthly or whenever the staff decides to get together and write an issue. 67 Key Clubbers Involved in Several Charitable Causes ‘ ' Three tube steaks with legs, " may sound like verbal nonsense to the average layman, but to the experienced Key Clubber it is a familiar cry at the perennial Red Raider concession stand. Unfortunately, some people are under the gross misconception that selling hot dogs at the foot¬ ball games is the principal task of a Key Clubber. Those who know better realize that each mem¬ ber of the Club is sincerely devoted to enriching man’s existence. This year, under the fatherly guidance of Mr. Ray Ross, our spiritual leader, Joe Strazzulla, and the explosive leadership of the board, the Key Club spearheaded such wor¬ thy programs as " Toys for Tots " , the Chelsea Relief Drive, an in-school UNICEF collection, and the Ugly Teacher ' s Contest for the Christian Children’s Fund. Many clubbers also made fre¬ quent visits to the Wellesley Nursing Home and the V.A. Hospital in West Roxbury. Together with the Wellesley Red Cross, the Key Club staged a party for the local retarded children. When it was time to go, a few of the members had a hard time trying to convince the nurse that they were really with the Key Club. " Tapping " various sources, the Club was able to contribute $350 to the Uni¬ versal Weight Machine (not to mention the $500 worth of raffle tickets sold). In keeping with the Key Club’s distinguished tradition, the members always got together for an intense session before any major event. What will the typical high-schooler remember about his past year as a Key Clubber? Probably a kaleidoscope of memories . . .his thorny interview ... his initial expedition to Dana Hall . . . aching feet from the walkathon . . . laugh¬ ter of the children watching his antics in the parade. m k t . .

String Orchestra and Orchestra Have Busy Year The String Orchestra has been especially active during its second year. They performed at all concerts this year, play¬ ing challenging music successfully.

National Honor Society Goals Re-evaluated This Year The National Honor Society was comprised of students outstanding in the areas of academics, leadership, serv¬ ice, and character. Among the most important services of the N.H.S. was the tutoring program. The program was coordinated through the efforts of vice-president Markian Stecyk. Many members contributed their time and efforts as tutors for other students. This year, Diana Borden, president, and Ronald Tiberio, advisor, dedicated many hours, along with other members of the faculty and administration, to the re-evaluation of the procedure for selection of new members, in the hopes of arriving at a more objective method. The outcome will be a decision based on whether or not Wellesley retains its membership in the National Honor Society, or if Wellesley wishes to establish its own organization for recognition of outstanding scholars. 81 Film Club Presents Several Major Films This Year Left to right: Amy Hatton, Jane Pilecki, Mr. Rutledge, Advisor, Ted Barber, Nancy Helfrich and Jeff Demain. The Film Club, a student-run concern, was formed by a core of cinema buffs who organized regular showings of major silent and sound features, both American and inter¬ national. The club distributes a newsletter and information with each film shown. It has additionally organized the screenings in a chronological sequence to illustrate the devel¬ opment of film techniques and film history. Recent film selections have been chosen to have a maximum benefit to the school’s curriculum as well. The Stratomatic Baseball Club Is One of Most Active On any given afternoon, the sound of dice being rolled breaks the silence of Wellesley High School. Room 217 is transformed into the setting for count¬ less hours of exciting and realistic baseball action. This is the home of Stratomatic baseball, a game which uses dice and player cards to simulate the batting ability, fielding ability and speed of hundreds of major league stars. Under the supervision of Mr. Barr, the Commissioner, a draft is held, a league is formed and a close and exciting pennant race begins. To win one must have skill, luck and a knowledge of baseball and its strategy. 82 Silting: Bob Montgomery and John HaracKiewicz. 2nd Row: George Wood, Rick Plouffe, Hank Stewart, Dick Hammond, Mr. Barr, Advisor. 3rd Row: Steve Mitchell, Jim Lewis and Bob Eaton.

The athlete develops a sense of dedication, team work, pride, and accomplishment. The goals of high school athletics embodies all these concepts. Reporting two weeks early to school for football practice under a broiling August sun, waking up in the dark at five in the morning, for a swim team practice at six in the Babson pool, is part of the athlete’s experience. High school athletics is crowding into the gym on a raw January night to watch the basketball team win a double overtime game or sitting in a cold drizzle, watching the baseball team lose in the ninth inning. Or, it is running in the dark, dirty basement of the school for winter track practice. Injuries are common to high school athletes; sporting a black eye from a wild lacrosse ball or breaking a leg before the state cross country meet. But, the best, most rewarding experience of all is the winning. There is nothing like riding back to the school in a bouncing yellow bus with delirious teammates, laughing and singing and slapping each other on the back. It is being surrounded by wild, happy fans after advancing to the quarter finals of the soccer tournament. In the process, the high school athlete brings a moment of fame to Wellesley High School.

What can you say about a cross country team that was undefeated in nine meets? It was the best team in the Bay State League, the third best in their division in Eastern Massachusetts, and the eighth best in the entire state. The team worked hard and earned every victory. That ' s how it went for the 1973 Red Raider cross country team. It was a love story. Six, sometimes seven times a week the team was carrying out its love affair with running, and it paid off. Nowhere in the school was there a team so dedicated as these runners. It was a close team. Co-captains Mark Murray and Rich Benner plus Matt Dennen had been running together since they were sophomores. I n addition there were juniors Phil Makris, Kevin Greene, Andy Kane and Ken Hill and sophomores Mike Edelstein and John Reed. The team literally ran over their opponents. The clos¬ est meet came against Needham in the season ' s finale. All the elements were there to make it a classic con¬ frontation. The two teams were undefeated going into the meet. Each one wanted the Bay State League Championship. Perhaps Wellesley wanted it a bit more. In the past Needham had always dominated the Raid¬ ers. Wellesley wanted it and they got it. They triumphed by one point — a perfect ending for a perfect season. Rich Benner The senior triumvirate: Rich Benner, Mark Murray and Matt Dennen.

The 1973 soccer team probably was not the most talented team in the school ' s history, but it was undoubtedly the most successful. For the first time since the team’s founding, the Red Raiders entered the State Soccer Tournament. The squad reached the quarter finals of the competition before being eliminated by Lincoln-Sudbury, the state finalists. Eastern Massachusetts All Stars John Harackiewicz and Tom Coyle were two reasons why their team fared so well. Goalie Harackiewicz and back up man Dick Wright combined for thirteen triumphs, twelve of which were shutouts. Coyle continually frustrated the opposition with his exceptional ball handling. The hustling defensive play by Bob Bossange, Phil Carens, Brian Dingman, and Jay McEnroe were constant bright spots throughout the season. Mark Cleverdon led the offense by scoring nine goals, including a three goal effort against Milton. Joining Cleverdon on offense were Jeb Bach¬ man, Ian Copland, Mike Hernberg, Tom Johnson and Jim Raphael. With soccer rising in popularity among Wellesley’s youth, the Red Raiders will surely be represented in future state tournaments.

When the football team was good, they were very, very good. But when they were bad, they were horrendous. Unfortunately the Raiders were good only three times in nine contests. They triumphed over Framingham South, Milton, and Needham. The biggest factor in Wellesley’s losses was that they always had to play catch up. The Raiders always trailed going into the locker room at half time. They were outscored in the first half by a cumulative score of 136 to 50 and they were never able to come back in the second half and rally to victory. The talent was there for a good team but they could not put it together. There was Jaycee Player of the Year, Tom McGreevy, for instance. He could have done it all for the Raiders but his passing talents were neutralized by ineffec¬ tive pass blocking. Running backs Jeff Davis and Jim McDermott were tough but they lacked the speed and explo¬ siveness of Mike Gibson and Scott Sullivan, last year’s stars. In addition, there was Gary Page who was voted most sports¬ manlike player by the coaches in the league. The defensive line wasn’t too bad with Steve Corda, Scott Nickeson, and Tom Crook. Bay State League All-Star Russell Lowe and Mark Reynolds excelled in their linebacker posi¬ tions. The weakest part of the defense was the secondary. They were continually beaten on pass plays which set up touchdownsfor the opposition. Wellesley’s best game came against the Needham Rock¬ ets on Thanksgiving. Given a big rally the night before, the Raiders felt compelled to win their last game. Tied up at half time, Wellesley came back in the second half with a touch¬ down to win 16-8. It took a tremendous goal line stand by the defense to preserve the victory in the closing minutes of the game. Since the end of the season Coach Kerivan has retired. His twenty years of experience will be missed. Brian Cameron, Bruce Peck, and Tom Sullivan will captain the 1974 team. It will include Davis, Lowe, Reynolds, Crook, and the highly acclaimed sophomore, McDermott. New coach John McDermott will have over half thesquad returning.

Waterbabies Finish Second in State The Wellesley Waterbabies had a schedule of rough meets, but managed to defeat each of their rivals (except Wayland) ending the season with a 5-1 record. On three separate occasions, this powerful Wayland team out-swam the Wellesley girls. However, the Waterba¬ bies should be commended for their second place finish in both the Eastern Mass, and State Championships. All the swimmers helped, but outstanding performances by divers Missy Harvey and Diana Borden and the swimming of the Jeutter sis¬ ters, the Sullivan twins, Cathy McHugh, and Co-captains Meg Ben¬ nett and Francie Palmer, who excelled mainly in moral support, car¬ ried the team through to victory. At the state meet, Wellesley was third going into the final event, but moved into second by capturing first place in the 400 freestyle relay in record time. The members of the relay team: Cathy McHugh, Bar¬ ger and Christa Jeutter and Meg Bennett, should be congratulated for their exciting and successful races.

The girls’ varsity field hockey team was optimistic about the prospects of the coming season after spending a week at summer hockey camp in Vermont. They had a strong squad of juniors and seniors returning and with rookie sophomores Janet McHugh and Karen Krech they proved their prowess as they again placed third in the Bay State League with a 7-2-3 record. Co-Captain Margaret Sullivan, with seven shutouts to her record, was aided throughout the season by the tough defensive squad of Co-Captain Sally Whalen, Sudie Gifford, Debbie Higgins, Barb Goodman and Anne Phillips. Leading scorers Caryl Copland and Gail Wellford, together with Pam Durkin and Anne Garrity, fired shots past the opposing goalies to make Wellesley’s forward line a formidable one, while juniors Jan Wilson, Barb Furdon, Dawn Bedrosian and Sara Thorne added punch to the Raiders throughout the season. The entire team deserves praise for its fine performances. Coach Chris Burns was especially helpful in keeping the team continually striving for victory.

Absent: Rich Lehrer, Bruce Holmberg. The Red Raiders swim team completed their season with a fine record of eight wins and three losses. Coached by Mr. Edward Touhey and led by Tri-captains Pete Clauson, John Moon and John Dale, the team gained upset victories over Attleboro, B.C. High and Philips-Andover Academy. The Red Raiders broke an astonishing total of six school records, despite not having their own pool to use for practice. The Wellesley steamroller flattened their early season opponents. They won seven consecutive meets but were stopped in their eighth meet by the state champion Need¬ ham, 88-84. The swimmers placed third in the conference meet and they finished the year by competing in the Eastern Mass, meet, the state meet and The New England Champi¬ onship meet. Tri-Captains Pete Clauson, John Moon and John Dale swam well throughout the season. Pete Clauson established school records in the 200 yd. Individual Medley, the 200 and 500 yd. Freestyle events and teamed with John Moon, Bob Nutting and Gerry Halpin to break the 400 yd. Freestyle relay record. Senior Glenn Allen and Junior Bob Nutting also broke school records in the 100 yd. breaststroke and diving events, respectively. Seniors Dave Guigli, Rich Lehrer, Ben Moore, Ken Broadbent, Junior Cliff Manchester and Sopho¬ more Mark Davidson all made solid contributions to the team effort.

For the fifth straight year, the boys’ varsity basketball team ended their season with a losing record. The Raiders won seven of their eighteen contests. Rugged Garth Wainman was the team’s main man. He provided the offensive fuel, three times scoring more than twenty points in a game. When Wainman didn’t score, Bill Fay or Ted Watkin did. Fay was recognized by the Boston Globe, earning an honorable mention berth on that paper’s all-star team. Tom McGreevy and Tom Crook rounded out the starting five. Ed Meehan played well as th e team’s sixth man. Underclassmen Dave Boghosian, Jeff Davis, Bill McNabb, Russell Lowe, Peter Cassoli, and Dennis Archibald gained valua¬ ble playing experience this year and will be an asset to next year’s squad.

A combination of speed, super defense, excellent rebounding, and good foul shooting brought the girls ' basketball team into the quarter finals of the Eastern Mass. Basketball Tournament. This team proved to be one of the most successful girls’ basketball teams in the history of WHS. The leading scorer, junior Marsha Williams, amassed an impressive total of 246 points during the season. She was followed by Co-cap- tain Caryl Copland, who repeated the excellent ball handling and speed she has shown throughout her three years on the team.

Under the coaching of Mr. Adessa, the Red Raiders were quickly recognized as the most spirited and hustling squad in the Bay State League. The Wellesley side of the ice had something to cheer about for the first time in years. After a quick start, the Raiders fell into a series of ups and downs. Sometimes the hustle couldn’t make up for the lack of fundamental skills and overall experience. Jim McDermott and Mark Reynolds, two of the top ten scorers in the BSL, and John Flerlage provided a powerful first line. The defense was anchored by Mike Smolens in goal and Ron Bisplinghoff on defense. Pete Flerlage and John Maples also added depth to the squad. Although the first year of reconstruction was an overall dis¬ appointment, the coming year will certainly be much better as virtually the entire squad will be returning. This year’s team earned respect in the Bay State League. 129 First Row: Dan Scully, Bruce Peck, Tom Kincaid, Eddie Bennett, Jimmy Knott, Dave Lovett, Eliot Powell, Captain Charlie Allen, Michael Fitzpatrick, Carl Hayden, Alton Young, Peter Bazirgan, Michael Camp.

BUT NOT BY MUCH The wrestling team had a 5-6 record, but felt that they had a fulfilling season. The matmen started the season strongly, beating Framingham North and Braintree. In their next meet the Raiders encountered bad luck. A questionable decision gave a tough Dedham squad a narrow victory. At Walpole, the grapplers suffered an even more disheartening loss by succumbing to the Rebels by one point. Wellesley’s best effort of the year was a 49-9 victory against Natick. Many individuals had outstanding seasons. The most prominent was captain Charlie Allen because he lost only once during the season. Seniors Mike Fitzpatrick and Eliot Powell, juniors Bruce Peck, Peter Bazirgan, and Jimmy Knott, and sophomore Ron Goguen all had superlative sea¬ sons. The team had fine fan support. This was exhibited espe¬ cially in the home meets against North and Natick. Both times the crowd packed the gymnasium to watch the team.

This year’s girls’ gymnastic team, led by Co-captains Deb¬ bie Belitsos and Beth Moon, finished third in the Bay State League with a strong 7-2 record, losing to second place Framingham North by only one tenth of a point. This dedi¬ cated and talented group formed one of the finest gymnastic teams Wellesley has ever had. Artistic routines by Beth Moon, Debbie Belitsos, Betsy Moore, Becca Reggio, Jenny McCabe, Pat Hughs and Kim Epifano combined style and grace with physical ability in pro¬ viding the majority of the team ' s points. Susan Drevitch, in her first year as coach, proved an intelli¬ gent, and inspiring leader who gained the respect of the entire team. Capping off the rewarding season, Debbie Belitsos, Beth Moon and Betsy Moore each qualified for the State Gymnas¬ tic Meet. 132 Debbie exhibits grace.

Gymnasts Abound With Talent The 1973-74 men’s gymnastics team was the best in recent years, due mainly to the fine efforts of Co-Captains Rich Schmidt and Peter Centenari and juniors Keith Schroeder and Paul Centenari Schroeder, an extraordinary gymnast, placed fifth in the state competition. He could be counted on to consistently score points in all events. The fly¬ ing Centenaris and Schmidt provided experience and points in parallel bars, high bar, and floor exercise. Senior Gary Robelen, juniors Pete Amalfi and Joe Sisk, and sophomores Bob Molloy and Jim Sheehan added depth and skill in the rings, side horse, and vaulting events. Coach John Barnicott from B.U., guided the team to a fourth place finish in the Bay State League. Schmitty swings at the bar. Keith Schroeder — All State Gymnast.

Third Row: Davis Clark, Nils Carder, Bob Perry, Ali Riley, Sally Riley, Ginny Gavris, Rick Peters, Chuck Haering. The ski team compiled an impres¬ sive 16-3 record. Led by Co-Captains Jeff Hollinger and Sue Pevear and coached by Mike Mastro, the team began conditioning early in November. The training paid dividends as the boys won eighteen of their meets and the girls were victorious fifteen times. The sexes competed separately in sla¬ lom and cross country events. The men’s and women’s scores were then combined to determine the team win¬ ner. Jeff Hollinger, Chip Rogers, Pete Mahlstedt, and Dave Butze consist¬ ently skied well. The women were led by Sue Pevear, Mary McGoldrick, and Nancy Arnot. Super Veer! Indoor Track Team Has .500 Season Kneeling: Jeff Clark, Dave O’Doherty, Rich Benner, Co-Captains Jim Carper and Mark Murray, Jon Haycock, Matt Dennen, Bob Bossange.

Tokin’ Joe Proud leads Shake ’N Bake Dennen around the turn. The indoor track team was surely one of the success tories of the winter sports season. In three short years, the squad rose from the bottom of the Bay State League to finish in a respectable fifth place. The team earned a 4-4-1 record. Half a dozen team records were established during the season, three by co-captain Mark Murray. He set standards in the two mile, one mile, and 1000 yard races. Jon Haycock ran a record 300 yard race against Natick and also set a record for the most points scored in a single season. Thrice did the relay team of Mike Brown, Joe Proud, Matt Dennen and Jon Haycock set a record. Also contributing points throughout the year were Rich Benner, Kevin Greene, Phil Makris, Dave O’Doherty, and co-captain Jim Carper. Graduation will be felt hard by next year’s team as seven seniors are leaving but the future looks promis¬ ing for distance runners Kevin Greene, and Phil Makris, and sprinters Mike Brown, Joe Proud, Reekie James, and Jim Raphael. Andy Kane and Mark Murray set to start in the two mile. Murray Leads the Spring Track Team and the Fans Support Them Kneeling: Peter Cassoli, Richard Benner, Dave Johnson, Dave O’Doherty, Jim Carper, Sammy Corda, Co-captains Mark Murray and Matt Dennen, Ron Bisplin- ghoff, John Haycock, Pete Mahlstedt, Richard Schmidt, Dave McCahon, Peter Clauson, Peter Centenari, Clark Ewer, Jeff Hollinger, Debby Pelles. Standing: Coaches John McDermott and Will St. Cyr, Ed Marcin, Phil Makris, John Reed, Joe Proud, Alton Young, Jim Sheehan, Bruce Peck, Bob Nutting, Scott Peck, Mark Johnston, Arthur Abraham, Bill McEnroe, Russ Lowe, Toby Slodden, Reekie James, Ken Hill, Mike Brown, Wayne Cunningham, Rich Davis, Duncan Ross, Kevin Greene, Brian Cameron, Bill McNabb, Peter Brown, George Marsh, Larry Smart, Jim Raphael, Mike Edelstein, Ken Schroeder, Paul Centenari, Ron Goguen, Bob Malley, Michael Greene, Tom Connelly, John Owen. Coach Will St. Cyr had hoped for a Bay State League track championship to compli¬ ment his first place cross country team, but rival Braintree was too formidable an oppo¬ nent, so Wellesley had to settle for second place. The team performed well outside the BSL placing second in the State Relays, fourth in Class B in Eastern Mass, schools and fourth in the entire Commonwealth. Wellesley ' s fine showing in the state meet came on the strengths of Mark Murray’s first in the two mile, Peter Centenari’s second place in the pole vault, and Rich Schmidt’s fifth place performance in the same event. Mark Murray also won the New England two mile to complete h is career o n top. Performing well all season were mile record holder Rich Benner, co-captain Matt Dennen, John Haycock, and Clark Ewer. Weightmen Ron Bisplinghoff, Jim Carper, and Richie Davis always contributed vital points. Sophomore speedsters Mike Brown and Joe Proud ran superbly in their first year of track. Seniors Jeff Hollinger, Peter Mahlstedt, Dave O’Doherty and Dave McCahon will all be missed next season. He went thatta way! —Jim Carper. 136 Trotting round the bend. Rich Benner.

Hence, mistakes were made and ball games were lost due to inex¬ perience. George Kerivan did coach some experienced seniors such as Gary Page, Tim “Googie” Furdon and Pat “Kaline” Kline, who excelled on the field. Weak pitching and inept bat¬ ting were the major woes of the squad. Cold rainy weather and poor fan sup¬ port also contributed to the team’s demise. Jon Maples, Tom Crook, Jeff Davis, and Mark Reynolds hope to improve on the baseball team’s suc¬ cess next year. Sitting: Peter Amalfi, Jeb Bachman, Tim Furdon, Bob McCabe, Doug Lakis, Kevin Fenton, John Dale, Gary Page.

The team com¬ piled a respectable 12-6 record, but they seemed to lack that little extra toughness or skill that was necessary to win a tough match. Jeff Eagleson at 1 singles easily defeated lesser opponents, but lost in close matches against the stiffer oppo¬ sition in the league. Dave Andrew at 2 never got his game or pysche together whereas Kimmy Marden was mentally tough and usually won his matches. 1 doubles partners Dick Wright and Tom Murray were capable of phenomenal tennis on occasion. The 2 doubles team of Caleb Aldrich and Billy Goodman played an exciting brand of tennis. Freshman Coach E. Brooks God¬ dard instituted preseason conditioning and running drills into the team pro¬ gram. He has also encouraged the underclassmen to enter tournaments during the summer to get used to pres¬ sure tennis. The result will be a tougher Wellesley squad come next spring.

Senior John McCann and Sopho¬ more Debbie Hoffman played very well in their respective state tournaments. McCann reached the final round of the schoolboys’ competition while Hoff¬ man’s play was good enough to cap¬ ture third place among the women. Kneeling: Debby Hoffman, John McCann, Mike Sullivan, Andy Young. Standing: Marty Earls, Lee Gavris, Tom Maher, Dave Turgeon and Coach Charlie Burgess. Ready. Aim.

Either several fielding lapses occurred throughout the sea¬ son, or the hitting ability was greatly hampered, for all efforts resulted in a below par showing during the first year of Wellesley’s girls’ Softball team. Coached by Miss DeVincenzi, and playing in a tough and experienced Bay State League, the team seemed to improve with each game. Hope Schermerhorn consistently hit well with Karen Hayes gaining ability each time she went to the plate. Bo th Marsha Williams and April Bell proved themselves as excellent base runners and co-captains Boe Morgan and Laurie McGrath were key players in fielding situations. Starting pitcher, Gail Welford will not be returning, but back up pitcher Mary Liz Johnson has two years ahead of her. With the outfield intact, next year should bring greater expectations for the girls. Pitcher Patti McQuillan delivers a fastball. Marsha swings with power. 143 The Girls ' Tennis Is First — So, What Else Is New? Sitting: Co-caplains Nancy Arnol and Sue Pevear, Kneeling: Varsity members Sherry Lurie, Sue Bod- den, Marilyn McGreevy, Sally Broderick, Helen Snit- zer, Louise Hurvitz, Dot Gardner, Carol Wright, For the past five years, the girls’ Tennis team has consist¬ ently placed first in the Bay State League. Led by co-captains Sue Pevear and Nancy Arnot, this year’s girls’ team again captured the top spot in the Bay State League with an 11-0 record. Throughout the season, Marilyn McGreevy and Sue Bodden played outstanding matches in their first and second singles positions, and Helen Snitzer played a strong third sin¬ gles. Marilyn defeated Sue for the Eastern Mass. Singles Title. Then, in early June, she defeated the Western Mass, winner for the first girls’ State Singles Championship in high school competition. Sue Pevear and sophomore Sally Broderick consistently defeated their opponents in first doubles position, while Nancy Arnot and Wheatsie Corcoran rotated with Sherry Lurie and Maureen Duggan at second doubles. Next year, the team should be equally competent because only three seniors are leaving. M aureen Duggan. 3rd Row: Coach Karen Kaplan.

The girls’ Lacrosse team, with an overall record of 12-1 and a 7-1 League record, finished in a first place tie with Weston. They lost their only game to Weston early in the season but sprung back to defeat them towards the end. Barb Goodman and co-captain Caryl Copeland were the leading scorers and the key to the team’s outstanding offense. Co-cap- tain Pam Durkin with help from Jan Wilson, Eileen Galvin, Debbie Belitsos, Dawn Bedrosian, Barb Furdon and Cindy Buckley contributed to the con¬ tinuous scoring throughout the sea¬ son. Goalie Debbie Higgins, with eighty saves, kept the scoring to a minimum. Helping Debbie at defense were Sudie Gifford, Mary Jane Scannell, Joan Schlottenmier, Margaret Sullivan, Anne Garrity, Betty Mann, Sue Sullivan and Karen Krech. There were only six underclassmen on the varsity squad, therefore, next year will probably be a rebuilding one. What a scoop! Janet makes a strong defensive effort. Robin Hood and Little John have a joust. Despite strong opposition, Wellesley shoots on goal. 147 The first week in June was the final official week that seniors were together It was a time of celebrating, high spirits, and relaxed enjoyment, yet it was also a time tinged with a bit of nostalgia The Banquet, Prom, Graduation, and All-Night Party were the last events for seniors, and so there was much reminiscing about the past three years, including all the good and bad times that the Class of 1974 shared together. This traditional section is meant to portray the unique aspects of our class throughout this week of celebrations Roberta Benotti Traditions Editor Eliot Powell, a member of the class of 1974, was selected to be one of 1400 Semifinalists, from 50,000 who were tested, in the National Achievement Scholarship Program of Out¬ standing Negro Students. The choice of Semifi¬ nalists is based upon the student’s scores on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test. Financial awards are presented to those con¬ tinuing in the competition, with the purpose of supporting their plans for higher education. Eliot will receive 1,500 dollars from the Mobil Oil Corporation every year during his four years at t h e University of Pennsylvania. Eliot Powell Scholarship Winner Seven Students Recognized for Oustanding National Academic Achievement Six Wellesley High School seniors were chosen by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation to be Semifi¬ nalists in the scholarship program; all six were later selected to be Finalists. The choice of students for this honor is based upon the scores of the Prelimi¬ nary Scholastic Aptitude Test. An equivalent performance must be main¬ tained on the Scholastic Aptitude Test in order to be eligible for a Finalist standing. Furthermore, the student submits biographical data and the endorsement of the principal of the school. As only a few students are selected to reach the Finalist standing, Wellesley High is honored by these six outstanding students. David Martin, Mary Mooradian, David Birney, Madeleine Grant, Diana Borden, Hank Stewart; our National Merit Scholars. 150 Over Fifty Students Honored for Scholastic Achievement at Academic Awards Assembly This Spring Front Row: Marcie Greenfield, Debbie Linnell, Victoria White, Roberta Benotti, Susie Faulkner, Francesca Villa, Eva Wagner, Kathy Forrester, Linda DiGiandomenico, Sharon Skelly, Wendy Shapiro, Margot Robinson, Betsy Gerald.

As always, there are some students who seem to steal the show by gathering numerous awards, such as Alex “four-out-of-five-ain ' t- bad” Black, and Will “l-never-met-an- award-l-didn’t-like” Rogers. In addition to the prizes that are for specific subjects, there are four col¬ lege book prizes that are awarded to the students who are outstanding in character, as well as scholastic achievement. Marcie Greenfield, Sarah Thorne, Brian Zimbler, and Alex Black were the four recipients for this year. Congratulations to these stu¬ dents and to all the others who excelled and were recognized at the assembly. 151 ttS V mi Graduation Friday, June 71974 Senior Cup Winner Jeb Bachman Senior Cup Winner Diana Borden Peter Taggart, Class Officers, the Class of 1974 Billy Duggan Matt Dennen Garth Wainman Sally Adzigian, Diana Beach, Scott Beebe Eve Wagner Awards at the Senior Banquet Mr. Rokicki accepts his " Rock " from President Peter Taggart.

Need we say more? 161 As students in a school of close to 1500, we spend much of our time in groups, whether social, academic, or athletic. A person is more often identified by his membership in a club or on a team than by a name. While developing the ability to learn and function in group situations is an important part of our high school educa¬ tion, we also feel the need to be recognized as individuals. Toward this end we present the individual senior portraits, and we include underclassmen for the first time in recent years. Barbara Malt Seniors Editor Seniors Wrap Up Bittersweet High School Years SUE O’HARA, Vice-President DIANE NICOLAI, Secretary Senior year is always a year of frantic planning and activities. Worries over col¬ lege and job plans for next year conflict with day to day worries over work, friend¬ ships, and grades to be kept up. Our eagerness to escape home and high school battles with the inner desire some of us have to linger just a little longer. The days sometimes blur into one long line of priorities, deadlines, papers, places to be, and projects to finish. But the Class of 1974, like all the graduating classes that have preceded us, has found a special excitement and closeness in being seniors that will always be remembered and never quite duplicated.

The com¬ petition for good grades, combined with the omnipresent pressure of College Board exams resulted in a hectic pace. Nevertheless, they were able to participate in worthwhile activities such as the Lion’s Club light bulb sale. The enthusi¬ asm of class support helped them make headway for the financial burden of the senior year.

(Youth Employment Service) 28 Days of Future Past There are some two hundred odd pages that separate this final message from the initial " Impact 74” introduction. Yet, the pages in between represent ten months of nail biting, frustration, and dedication by a great group of committed and talented stu¬ dents. During the past year, we have seen Henry Kissinger walk on water to negotiate peace in the Middle East. It was also a year in which the American people heard their President state, “I am not a crook.” His Watergate problems were highlighted by the Saturday Night Massacre. Spiro Agnew, John Erhlichman and H. R. Haldeman have all come and gone. The energy crisis resulted in widespread panic (everyone had to do what " Simon Said”) and a seldom used process: planning and foresight with our natural resources. The winter months of fuel conservation did not lessen the number of cars and streakers in the parking lot or the number of activities in which the students participated. The annual Natick football and basketball rivalries continued; students still sweated over Palumbo’s tests; or gossiped in the cafeteria. The school addition is still in its planning stages as this goes to press. This year marks the departure of three very familar faces. To Miss Eileen Soper, Mrs. Mary Keenan and Mrs. Sylvia McCurdy — We and the entire school thank you for your years of dedica¬ tion and devotion to the students and our school. George Keri- van, Sr., the football coach, retired after twenty years of active service. As the months of winter dragged on, seniors perked up. Visions of graduation ceremonies overshadowed the doubts of “making it” with all 63 credits. Senior Week provided an excel¬ lent transitional period during which graduates had a chance to relax after the grind of studies ended. Seniors wined and dined at the Banquet, Prom and All-Night Party, made new friends and reconciled themselves with old enemies. A new environ¬ ment of revelry and spirit brought out the individual in each one of us. This became a very important aspect in the mental gradu¬ ation process as seniors learned that it might be easy to be cyn¬ ical, but honesty, optimism and laughter are the basis for our growth in the future. The problems and the happiness of the “outside” world now await us as our high school years end. The publication of this yearbook has been a long drawn out, and at times, painful process. The staff has undergone the medieval torture of the last minute and or instant panics of Mrs. Barrett and the strain of raising enough money. (By the way, did YOU buy a Red Raider Mug?). A large part of our senior year memories will consist of the midnight (and later) meeting, the consumption of gallons of Tab and tons of " munchies” in prep¬ aration for the next day deadlines. The staff this year was highly individualistic. Each person brought his or her own creativity and imagination to help resolve the problems of publication. Rich, Jen, Jim, Meg, Bonny, Ann, Cheska, Nancy, Barbara, Dave and crew, you all know what it was like. The Wellesleyan would like to thank the seemingly tireless Westwood photogra¬ phers and Mr. Paul Delaney of Taylor Publishing Co. for their assistance. We only hope that you, the reader, will get as much out of it as was put into it. When the Class of 74 is " older and wiser,” the yearbook will still remain as a time capsule of one particular year and provide memories of Wellesley High. Say good night, Ed. P.S. The Wellesleyan staff would like to apol¬ ogize to the staff of the Bradford for the year¬ book’s write-up. At the time the copy went to press, the Bradford was in desperate finan¬ cial straits and was slowly dying. Thanks to School Committee funding and a change in editors, the Bradford regained its respected status at the school. P.P.S.
