SENIOR CLASS SONG 



From the halls of Duxb'ry High School 
To the outs'de world we go. 
We have struggled hard for our ideals 
In the school that was our home. 
We have studied hard to-gether 
Just to keep our honor clean, 
And now we have to say good-bye 
To Duxb'ry H'.gh School scenes. 

Here's good health to you and to our land 

Which we are proud to serve. 

In many a strife, we'll fight for life 

And never lose our nerve. 

So good-bye dear fellow classmen 

And teachers kind and true 

We have had a joyful time with you, 

But now we say adieu.

GRADUATION 




HONOR ESSAY 



The Post War World 

i 

i 

Although our thoughts today are concerned mainly with the problems 
of the present, we should devote some time to the future, to the peace which 
is to come. What kind of peace will it be? 

This World War II is> a decisive war, a war between two types of 
governments, "Hitlerism," and government mainly by the people of a 
country. Thus, although a negotiated peace is possible, more probable is 
total victory by one side. 

In considering governmental organization after the war, it has been 
found that there are three possible plans for the world. The first, indi- 
vidual nations balancing their power against one another by means of 
' treaties and alliances, has operated in the world for many years and has 
failed to prevent wars. The second is world domination by the victor. The 
third calls for some form of world organization of free, self-governing 
" peoples, based on ideals of freedom and cooperation and also upon facts 
of economics and geography. 

Through the process of elimination the first plan is discarded because 
it has caused numerous wars and conflicts. The second plan is also aban- 
doned since the allies are fighting this war to prevent world domination 
by the Fascists. 

The third plan has received considerable thought and is one to which 
we should devote our attention. 

A broad base for the formation of a world organization of free, self- 
governing peoples was set forth in eight idea s formed by President Roose- 
velt and Prime Minister Churchill in the Atlantic Charter. In this they 
stated that they were seeking no territory, that territorial changes and 
forms of government should be determined by the people, that there should 
be freedom of trade, access to raw materials by all, improved labor stand- 
ards, economic advancement social security, freedom from fear and want, 
traverse of the high seas and oceans without hindrance, and the abandon- 
ment of force and use of armaments. 

With the Atlantic Charter as a basis, Louis Adamic in his book Two- 
Way Passi ve suggests that a United States of Europe be formed. After 
the war the United States should send over an army mostly made up of 
the American-born sons of immigrants to help Europe develop an economic 
system that will work, a system similar to the American system — a mixture 
of pr ivate property, controlled industry, public works, socialism, and com- 
munism. Co-operatives, great continental labor movements, collective bar- 
gaining, and working unity should be encouraged. A tremendous effort 
should be made to create a democratic revolution, a revolution for freedom 



[18]" 



The democratic system of the United States of America has worked 
for forty-eight separata and united states ; and for three-quarters of a 
century there has been no conflict between one state and another, but 
complete harmony and unity. If this system works in one land, why can't 
it work in another? 

Another p an has been suggested by Clarence Streit in his book Union 
Now. He believes that the world organization can be improved by the im- 
mod r.te f Liation cf a union of the democracies. As soon as other countries 
Wis i .c accent the principles of the union they can be admitted, thus 
eventually spreading throughout the world. This union would have full 
power in making w^r and peace, and also over trade, money, communica- 
tions, and ci:iz;nship within the Union. Voting power would be propor- 
tionate to iis se f-goveinMg population. 

ihes. aiv. enly some of the proposals. What sort of peace will follow 
this wax cannot be prophesied, but it can be planned. If we plan for a 
pe c that w..i be eternal peace, the boys on the batt.efields, on the seas, 
i.nd m tr.e ui end ciio people cn the home front will fight harder, making 
vic.ory c^cs-i tc hand.

HONOR ESSAY 

Grand Coulee Dam 



The eighth wonder of the world, man's most massive masonry struc- 
ture on earth, three times larger than the largest Egyptian pyramid, lies 
within the border of the United States in the state of Washington. It is 
the Grand Coulee Dam which harnesses the Columbia River, the greatest 
potential source of useful energy of the rivers of the United States. More 
water flows from the mouth of the Columbia every year than flows from 
the mouth of the Mississippi. The Grand Coulee Dam was started in the 
winter of 1933-34 by the Consolidated Builders Inc. 

This dam is being built under the authorization of the Columbia Basin 
Reclamation Project, which comes under the Bureau of Reclamation of 
the Department of the Interior. This bureau in the past 38 years has built 
160 dams, which have regulated streams and conserved water now irri- 
gating over 3,000,000 acres of land. 

The Grand Coulee Dam derives its name from the Grand Coulee, the 
old river bed of the Columbia River, which will serve as a reservoir for the 
water that will bring new life to the parched lands of Central Washington. 

The irrigation of the rich land of central Washington with the water 
of the Columbia has been dreamed of since the days of the early settlers. 
Now, the enforced abandonment of eroded and sub-marginal land, the 
natural increase in population, and the desire for improvement in standards 
in living, make it necessary. Modern equipment and methods, eleclric.il 
power, and federal financing make it possible. 

Before the actual work on the dam itself could be started, about twenty- 
two and a half billion tons of earth, gravel, and rock had to be removed, 
two towns, a bridge, a railroad, a high tension power line ; telegraph and 
telephone lines had to be built, and a whole hill had to be frozen with six 
miles of refrigerating pipes to keep it from sliding into the river. 

After these prelminary preparations, the dam itself was begun. Eleven 
billion two hundred-fifty thousand cubic yards of concrete and seventy- 
seven million pounds of reenforcing steel went into its construction besides 
tons of sheet steel pilings and millions of feet of lumber. Enough concrete 
was used to make two sixteen-foot highways from coast to coast. It 
measures five hundred feet in width at its base and thirty feet in width 
at its crest. It is 3,000 feet in length at its base and 4,300 feet long at its 
crest. 

There are two immense power-houses at each end of the dam. Each 
one is larger than the Capitol of the United States. In these there will be 
placed eighteen turbines and eighteen generators capable of generating 
1,950,000 kilowatts of electricity, enough electricity to make t:n solid 
aluminum Washington Monuments in one year. 



[20] 



In order to raise the great amount of water, needed for irrigation, 208 
feet into the Grand Coulee, ten pumps of enormous size will be installed 
at the dam. One of these pumps alone could supply New York City with 
enough water to take care of all its domestic needs. 

The water, which these pumps will raise into the Grand Coulee, will 
in the next twenty-five to fifty years, give new life to 1,200,000 acres of 
sagebrush and mirage. On this restored land, homes for 40,000 families 
will be provided and about as many in towns in the irrigated areas. 

This project will be self-liquidating by the payments from the settlers 
for water rights and from the purchasers of electric power. 

Now that the United States is at war, the power generated by the 
Grand Coulee Dam will become a valuable asset towards the final attain- 
ment of comp.ete victory over the Axis nations.

HONOR ESSAY 



The American Indian 



Before the coming of the "paleface," the Indians of America had 
made little progress in a material way and were truly "children of nature." 

No one knows where the Indian came from, but it is believed by many 
scientists that they came to this continent by crossing from Asia at Bering 
Strait or farther south by a passage which has now disapppeared. 

The straight, black hair, the broad face with high cheekbones, the 
aquiline nose, the slightly Chinese slant of the eye, and the scant beard 
are distinguishing features of the Indian. 

The basis of virtue with the Indian was self control. Each was re- 
quired to conceal his emotions and to stand torture without flinching. Theft 
and crime were so unknown to the Indians that there were no rules for 
punishment, and an Indian always kept a promise no matter what happened. 

It is readily thought that the chieftain of the tribe controlled every- 
one's rights and ways, but that is not so. Each man governed himself with 
respect for the rights of his neighbors, and notmng was left for the chief 
to do but to carry out the will of the tribe. 

Ceremonies featured by the smoking of the calumet, a stone pipe, 
marked the beginning and the end of a war. During wartime the warriors 
of battle daubed bright paint on their bodies and donned war bonnets of 
eagle feathers. 

When an Indian died, he was buried in a sitting position with his 
choice belongings beside him, for after leaving his present home, the Indian 
believed his soul would move to a different and more prosperous one. 

Many peop.e think of the Indian as being memy a hunter, a fisher, 
and last of all a fighter. But the Indian had many sports and games which 
he enjoyed. One of these was gambling, which was considered exce-unc 
sport. Another is the game of LaCrosse which has been taken over by the 
whites. 

The Indian has many beautiful and weird legends. That of Hiawatha 
has a permanent place in literature. Many of the Indian traditions re- 
semble the o.d Bible stories, for the most part those of Joseph. Other tales 
are of the anima.s building the wond, or bringing fire to men or are tragic 
romances. 

The Indian had great skill in weaving textiles and baskets and in 
making stone weapons. But with the coming of the metal utensils and 
machine-woven c.oth, the skil.ed arts to which the "children of nature" 
were adapted, vanished. 

The breakdown of the native culture was inevitable once the white 
man had entrenched himself in the New World. Whole tribes were swept 
away and others reduced greatly by new diseases introduced into the 
country by the settlers. The introduction of alcohol did its part to break 
down the pride and spirit of the Indian. 



[22-] 



The American Indians have left many gifts to the world. Among the 
plants developed by them are maize, beans, potatoes, and sweet potatoes, 
which are now four of the leading foods of the world. In addition, the 
Indian was the discoverer of quinine, cocaine, tobacco, and rubber, which 
are also very useful in these modern times. Many of us have read how 
Squanto taught the settlers at Plymouth to raise corn, thus enabling the 
colony to be partly self-supporting. Without maize, both Jamestown and 
Plymouth would have almost certainly failed, and the settlements along the 
Atlantic would have been delayed many years. 

Today, the blood of the American Indian flows in the veins of many 
of our leading citizens. Indian contributions to civilization and mankind 
are encountered on every hand, but their story as a separate people now is 
a subject of history and a record of the past.

CLASS MOTTO 



PART I. 

Faith in America is Faith in Ourselves 

Our class did not choose this motto because it fits into the trend of 
thought at this time, but because we believe in what our motto means. 

During these times our motto cannot be read without some thought 
being given to present world conditions. 

Webster gives the definition of faith as the "state of acknowledging 
unquestioningly the existence and power of a supreme being and the 
reality of a divine order." To acknowledge unquestioningly means to have 
complete confidence in, or to believe in. Believing in America is not a task 
for anyone. The immigrants that have come over here had faith that in 
America they would all have equal opportunities for personal achievements. 
They have had faith that their children would be able to rise above the 
lower class and have the same chance as a natural born American. If these 
immigrants who were not acquainted with America could believe in it, it 
is not hard to understand that we, Americans, are ready to give our lives 
to defend it. 

Eleanor Raymond 



PART II. 

Unity 

In our struggle for independence from England, it wns necessary 
for the colonists to band together to protect the faith they had built up 
in a new country. 

Even though they had to look forward to hardships with crude 
methods of life, they fought for their freedom rather than live under 
Parliamentary rule. They won their independence with all the odds against 
them. 

We must do the same. Faith in America means the same as faith in 
ourselves, for we are America. Living under parliamentary rule wasn't 
nearly so bad as living under a dictatorship would be, yet the early colonists 
all had faith in the same thing, and all expressed it by doing everything 
in their power to aid America in winning her independence. 

Six times America has been successful. The one reason for this has 
been faith. Whether in war or peace we must learn to face the hardships 
which are part of our freedom and faith.

CLASS HISTORY 



PART I. 

The "Limited 42" pulled into the Freshmen station on September 7, 
1938. We started with seventeen passengers but when we arrived we 
noticed that the "Limited 42" had attracted Rose Burdick, Barbara Scott, 
Theodore Whitcomb, and Arthur Hammond. Because Phoebe Shirley, Mona 
Scholpp, Robert Herdman, Norman Short, and Stanley McAuliffe had miss- 
ed the last train they also boarded ours. 

The passengers were so thrilled with the experience of starting on 
this trip, that they forgot about class meetings until October 3 when the 
officers for the coming year were elected. They were : 

President .... Robert Bunten 
Vice President . . . George Teravainen 
Secretary ..... Mona Scholpp 
Treasurer .... Phoebe Shirley 
Looking through the records, we find that our class dance was held 
on March 24, 1939. 

Since Arthur Hammond, Norman Short, and Stanley McAuliffe found 
thrt our accommodations were not up to their expectations, they decided 
to leave us. 

The first year of cur trip was spent mostly in preparaticn for the 
years that were to ccme. 

In June, 1939, our train pulled into the station which was called "Vaca- 
tion " where we were to spend the summer months. 

After the .ong needed rest was over, we once more boarded the "Lim- 
ited 42" which was to take us cn to the sophomore station. 

In examining the passenger list, we missed Theodore Whitcomb and 
Barbara Scott, two of our former passengers, but found that the accom- 
modations of the "Limited 42" had met the requirements of Synnove Strom, 
Daniel Winsor, Stuart Lagergren and Melvi.le Holmes. 

The President of the previous year called a meeting to elect officers 
for our sophomore year. Ihey were: 

President .... George Teravainen 
Vice President .... Robert Bunten 
Secretary .... Phoebe Shirley 
Treasurer . . . Marguerite Chandler 
Historian .... Harriet McNeil 
From the dates submitted to the students, March 29, 1940, was chesen 
for our dance. The dance was very successful. 

As the train pulled into our mid-year term, Synnove Strom expressed 
her desire to leave us and go into training as a nurse. 

We enjoyed greatly those memorable years with their difficulties and 
pleasures. 

I will now turn the controls over to John Alden, who will continue the 
trip into the junior and senior stations. 

Helen Taylor 



PART II. 

During the summer vacation of 194U, the passengers of the "Limited 
42" had such a burst of enthusiasm and wanted to soar to such high levels, 
that they decided to continue the trip by air. One by one they piled out of 
the faithful train and hurried to a streamlined airliner, "The Dreadnaught 
of 42." 

Marguerite Chandler, that dainty "gai" we liked so much, parachuted 
into space after the first week — to land on the roof of a girls' prep school 
and a few weeks later, we sorrowfudy heard, above the roar of the motors, 
that Laurel Cahoon and Norma Gates, who had joined us at the Freshman 
station on the "Limited 42", would have to leave us. Also, Bud Whitney, 
who is now in Pearl Harbor, joined us that year. 

We decided to hold our ciass dance on November 15, 1940. Our class 
officers were : 

President .... Phoebe Shirley 
Vice President . . Harriet McNeil 

Secretary . Laurel Cahoon — Letitia LeCain 
Treasurer .... Eleanor Raymond 
Historian .... Dorothy Eldridge 
After Laurel Cahoon left, Letitia LeCain took her place as class sec- 
retary. 

Again we heard some sad news — Rose Burdick — honor roll first, last 
and always was her slogan, — was goin to leave us. She was bound for 
Randolph. The rest of the trip was spent uneventfully in our cabins, 
everybody enjoying our reception at the end of the year. The "Dread- 
naught" landed on June 18, 1941, our passengers dispersing to enjoy their 
various summer occupations. 

The last part of our trip was spent as one gay, glorious time, especially 
with Shirley Shaw, Eleanor Field, and Bid Buckingham as newcomers, — 
with the class play, — "The Mad Hatters", — and our Hallowe'en dance the 
big events of the fall season. Meivil.e Holmes who joined us on the train 
"Limited 42" in 1938, had stayed from our crew and had not returned this 
year; Sylvia O'Neil left us late in March. 
Our class officers for this year were: 

President, Pilot Eleanor Field 

Vice President. Co-Pilot . . . Lloyd Blanchard 
Secretary, Navigator .... M. Freeman 

Treasurer Letty LeCain 

Historian ...... Phoebe Shirley 

Then, with graduation in the offing, and everybody busy, the "Dread- 
naught" throttled down and finally made its last landing on this J«ne 
19, 1942. 

The happy days we spent in Duxbury High will never be forgotten.

CLASS PROPHECY 



Harriet — "Well, Mona Scholpp, how on earth did you ever get to heaven — 
never mind — don't bother to answer — I can imagine that you used the 
same tactics on poor Saint Peter that you used on "Hogie" when you were 
on earth." 

Mona — "Okay, you're so smart. Suppose you tell me how you happened to 
get in." 

Harriet — "Oh, my great, great, grandfather knew the right saints. Say, 
what are you looking at anyway?" 

Mona — "Why, I'm looking down on all our classmates. Don't you remem- 
ber that twenty-five years ago today we graduated from D. H. S.? Draw 
up a cloud and look on ! Say ! Harriet, is that E.eanor Field crawling out 
from under that car?" 

Harriet — "Yes, that's "Baby" — She's head mechanic at Cushing Brothers' 
Garage now. She got her training in the Duxbury Motor Corps way 
back when she was in high school, and she became so good at pulling 
cars apart and even putting them back together again, correctly, that 
all the garages are trying to hire her now." 

Mona — "Boy! Who is that sleek looking fellow in the tux with a beautiful 
girl on each arm?" 

Harriet — "Oh, that's Bob Herdman. He's the owner of the Tiosey Ripsey 
Night Club. Don't some people do the most amazing things?" 

Mona — "Jello ! There's Jack Benny still on the air ! U-m-m, even the hair 
on his toupee has fallen out!" 

Harriet — "Holy smokes! Isn't that Helen Taylor with him?" 

Mona — "Sure! Ever since Mary Livingstone and Jack broke up Helen has 
taken Mary's place. She's even funnier than the great Benny himself." 

Harriet — "Well, well, there's "Dottie" Eldridge riding down the street 
with Willard Mills, the same old flame she had during her high school 
days. You know, Mona, they say that Willie's so bashful, Dottie hasn't 
been able to get him to pop the question yet." 

Mona — "Did you hear that Eleanor Raymond and Dickie Prince just got 
married?" 

Harriet — "Oh, did they? How come it was delayed so long?" 

Mona — "Well, when Dickie was studying in Michigan, the gas rationing 

started, and as he could only get a very few gallons a week — well, you 

can see why it was delayed." 
Harriet — "Look, there's Larry Marshall coming out of his famous Cure 

All Sanitorium. You know that's where all the society women go to rest 

up and have their nerves soothed and their worries ironed out by Dr. 

Marshall." 

Harriet — "What in the world ever became of "Opie" Blanchard, Mona?" 

Mona — "Well, "Opie" certainly surprised me. Do you remember the picture 
we took of him with his flash camera?" 

Harriet — "Do you mean the one that we all labeled 'The Wolf?'" 

Mona — "Uh-huh, that's the one. Well, believe it or not he's made a lot of 
money on that picture. He sent it in to the Wolf's Head Oil Company, and 
they use it all the time now for advertising purposes. And besides that, 
since Johnnie Weismuller died, "Opie's" been acting the part of Tarzan." 



L27] 



Mona — "And there's Sammy Teravainen. What are those papers he's look- 
ing over?" 

Harriet — "Oh, Sammy's still looking over codege folders trying to decide 

which college to go to. He wants one where the most basketball is played 

and where two-thirds of the beautiful gir.s go. 
Mona — "Harriet, do you remember how Betty Green's ambuion in high 

school was always to meet people?" 
Harriet — "Yes! By the way, isn't that she down there new?" 
Mona — "Yes, Betty is the greatest high-trapeze artist in the world. She 

loves her work, and she meets loads of people. Look ! There she is in 

the middle of her act! She'd better meet that trapeze in the air, or she'll 

be playing a harp too." 
Mona — "I wonder why all the actors and actresses are so much better 

dressed than they used to be?" 
Harriet — "Surely you've heard of Holly wod's Chic Shop?" 
Mona— "Oh. yes!" 

Harriet — "But didn't you know that Gladys Black and Shirley Shaw 

own it?" 
Mona— "No. Really?" 

Harriet — "Yes. They formed a partnership and brought their talent in 

dress designing to Hollywood. Now everyone profits by it." 
Mona — "Look! There's Bill Buckingham! You remember him, don't you?" 
Harriet — "Of course I do." 

Mona — "Did you know that he has written several books cn etiquette? 

And if you ask me he's got one of the most difficult jobs in the world/' 
Harriet — "Why? What's he doing?" 

Mona — "Well, if you look closely, you'll see that he's trying to teacli iWi 
students of D. H. S. a few table manners while they devour the^r sai^L.s 
commodities." 

Mona — "It seems that another one of our classmates is a big success out 
in Hollywood." 

Harriet — "Oh. yes, that's Zulmira Fernandes, the tiny girl in our class." 
Mona — "Let's see — she always wanted to be a beautician didn't she?'" 
Harriet — "Yes, and she's a second Perc Westmore now. You should s:3 

the wonders she's performed on the faces of some of those actresses." 
Harriet — "For goodness sake, isn't that Phoebe Shirley down there?" 
Mona — "Yeah, she's trying out for her automobile license again." 
Harriet — "Why I thought she got her license when we we/s in h.gh school." 
Mona — She did, but she never remembers to have it renewed. It's goit n 

so now that the examiner takes her out to lunch very year after their 

little spin." 
Harriet — "What's she doing now?" 

Mona — "Well, not very much. You know Phoebe never was very ambitious. 
She's just Dean of Duxbury University, President of the Parent Teachers 
Association, commercial teacher at Boston University, and in her speire 
time she's still doing all of Mr. Smith's typing. 

Harriet — "Duck, Mona!" 

Mona — "Wow! What was that? A bird a fish, or Superman?" 

Harriet — "Oh, none of those things. That was just Lettie LeCain in her 

autogiro. She's a second Amelia Earheart now!" 
Harriet — "Hey, isn't that Bob Bunten down there?" 

Mona — "It sure is! He's the smartest lawyer in America now, but he's 
earned his position. You know, Harriet, it's amazing what some people 
will do. Why, do you know that Bob was so afraid of missing some 



[28] 



minute bit of learning that he went to Harvard University for eight 
years; then he attended Harvard Law School for ten years; then he took 
a post graduate course for three years; and just for a pastime, he's still 
going to night school." 

Harriet — "Eight years, ten years, three years, still going to night school, — 
well at that rate he ought to be up here with us before long." 

Mona — "Harriet, have you read President Roosevelt's Nine Terms In The 
White House, by Marshall Freeman?" 

Harriet — "Yes, I just finished it." 

Mona — "If there ever are any more presidents, Mr. Roosevelt will prob- 
ably be their landlord. Look ! There's the president now coaxing Marshall 
to write his next fireside chat." 

Harriet — "In all our travels, we've missed John Alden." 

Mona — "Oh, I know where he is." 

Harriet — "You do ! Where?" 

Mona — "Since John has built the Pastime Playhouse in Duxbury, he has 
been playing the .eading roles in Hem et, M.cbeth, As You Like It, and 
after all these years, they've finally found a successor to Rudolph Valen- 
tino." 

Hornet — "Gee, those were the gcod old days. Sometimes I wish we were 
back on earth." 

Mona — "Well, if you hadn't been driving that foo.ish truck the way you 

a.ways did we'd probably still be down theie." 
Harriet — "That's right, blame me. You know it was all your fault. If you 

hadn't seen "Hogie" and screamed in my ear, I could have heard that 

fire siren r,nd gotten out of the way."

CLASS WILL 



We, the class of 1942, having lived fully every hour of our last four 
years, pass on to the rest of the school certain techniques, qualities, and 
characteristics, which may be of questionab.e value, but which we have 
found surprisingly useful. 

Harriet McNeil, whose literary ability has been evident throughout 
all the issues of the Partridge leaves that ability to any up and coming 
young person, provided that person can, like Harriet, keep up her school 
work at the same time. 

To Miriam Arnold, Lettie LeCain leaves her smoothness in dancing. 
With this power, Red, you really should stop them cold. 

Lawrence Marshall has a hidden abi.ity that, like Harriet McNeil's, 
came into prominence this past year and it is to his brother that he leavs 
this ability ; namely his technique for getting extra large scoops on his 
"thirds." Alfred should be quick to catch on. 

Eleanor Field, in making her last bequest, wishes to leave to the 
president of next year's senior cl?ss her never-ending giggle. It has livened 
up many a class meeting for us, and we feel sure the class of 1943 will 
need some such stimulant. 

Mona Scholpp's incredible talent for electrifying the boys should not 
be left to any one girl. It is very gratifying to us as a class to know that 
Mona is requesting that it be divided among every female in high school. 
Our only advice is for you gir.s to take it easy. Remember not all the 
boys are insulated. 

Opie B anchard, the previously shy, bashful type who suddenly blos- 
somed out this year into another Casanova, wiLs and bequeaths that now 
found talent to John Williams. It is presumed that he feels that John can 
bene^t h T * i f . 

To Betty Hughes, Eleanor Raymond leaves her temperamental flare- 
up. That's ad rigiit, Betty, the boys til&s it, anyway. 

Tall, lanky Bob Bunten leaves to Billy Mosher a foot and a half, 
which he will never miss, and which shouid enable Billy to throw thcs^ 
bails rl owr th^' gh the basket A pretty good idea, we cad it. 

Phoebe Shirley, our intellectual star, leaves her shining example to 
the res: ci tb.3 sc.icoi. May they all adopt her motto — "Hard work is the 
shortest way to success." 

W-2 a.l know that Shirley Shaw's ambition has been to be tall, dark, 
and glamorous. In this she has been most successful. We were not sur- 
prised to see that in her last will, she desired to pass on her formula for 
this achievement to Phyllis Mosher. 

Betty Green makes but one stipulation in her will, and that is that 
her thunder bo.t type of vitality and amazing ability go to Justine Delano, 
provided it keeps her from making those fairly regUiar trips to the office 
which Betty has found herself making. 

To the sophomore boys Bill Buckingham leaves his courteous man- 
ners, and his ease when conversing with the fairer sex. Can it be that 
Bill thinks they need any more polish? 



Zulmira Fernandes whose ever ready grin and giggle has endeared 
her to us a.l, leaves that quality to Betty O'Neil and Janic2 Dyer. Per- 
sonally wo wonder if they need this rs much £s mucilage cr some sort of 
sJck-um to keep them firmly in their seats during Study Hall. 

Helen Taylor, who believes that actions speak louder than words, 
wants Pat Snaw to fol.cw in her footsteps, and for that reascn leaves her 
quie. mannerisms to her. 

We wonder why it is that Robert Herdman leaves to Norman SchafTer 
tho foiiow.ng recipe for obtaining a diploma: "Work constantly, to your 
fullesc capacity with no fooling around, and pay little or practically no 
atcention 10 the oppos.te sex. Veil Schaffer, we can dream, can't we? 

Marshall Freeman was indeed far-sighted when he left his quick wit 
and clever rejoinders to Roy Scho.pp. With Marsnail s talents Roy should 
be really funny. 

Our class mechanic, John A. den, bequeaths to Melville Sinnoit that 
alleged ability. It served as a usefu. alibi for John when he wanted to 
pass class projects in late. It may get you by Melville. 

Gladys Black leaves to anyone in charge of refreshments the correct 
way to Coi.spire so that those in the kitchen wi.l be served first as well 
xast. It takes a good executive to plan as well as Gladys has always done. 

To Miss Downey, who in past years has received innumerable batons, 
we are going to be dnf erent. To you, who are completing your forty-fifth 
year of teaching we leave our congratulations and admiration for ah those 
years of servivce so conscientiously g*vcn. May we all be as successful 
in our chosen field as you have been in yours. 

A motor scooter seems to be the most appropriate thing that we can 
leave Miss Jor.nson — one that h^s a iitt.e siae car with Russ Shirley's 
name on it, in order to comply with the government s request to conserve 
on shoe leat.ier, for those innume.'ab.e trips to the office must definitely 
be hard on shces. 

Fortunately we were able to pull certain wires and with great diffi- 
culty obtained a mammoth trai e*- to leave to Mr. Biakeman. We couid 
th,nk ox notn.ng nujre fitting lor him, for it has been a little difficult for 
him, and hard cn the spr-ngs of his car to c.owj the entire basketball team 
iix^o ms car each night after practice. 

To Miss Brooks we leave sufficient black-out material to cover her 
classroom doors. This, more tnan anything we can think of should relieve 
the traffic congestion caused by the High Schoo. boys congregating at that 
end of the corridor. 

A special iicense for transporting boys to East Bridgewater we be- 
qu.ath to M.ss Pittman and to eac.i boy she takes a ij>50,UUU Life Insurance 
Policy. 

io Mr. Macomber we leave $2.00 and a second-hand tire for his un- 
forge table trip to Marshfield. 

The memory of a perfect history class we bequeath to Miss Manter. 
V, T e know she wil. never find our equal. 

To Miss Cornish we .eave a special decoder in case she has to read 
another class will written in the same kind of hand Writing as mine. 

To Mr. Smuh we leave someone who is as hard a worker as Harriet 
McNeil to Le Euitcr-in-Chief. I am sure Mr. Smith appreciates this price- 
less bequeath. 



[31] 



To Mr. MacKenney we leave innumerable opportrniti' y. to urr his 
proverbial saying, which unquestionably quiets down nois Study lie. s 
Twenty-five years from now conversing students wiil stil hear him s y 
"Something is going to drop around here, and it isn't going to bo a chocolate 
drop either." 

To Eleanor Hodgdon we leave an iron clad constitution to prevent h-3r 
from sampling her own cooking. She probab y will appreciate this gift. 

To Miss Horton we leave a rolling pin that she can wield over c tudy ha !s 
and later over her husband. From all appearances she wil. need no pr,:c:ic3 
in the use of it. 

To Mr. Bradford we leave a little less vehemence in relating our abili- 
ties to other coaches about our powers on the be.sketbrl court. Mr. Brad- 
ford elaborated about our record so much that the other coaches feared to 
play us. 

Unlike other wills that only become legal after death the makers of 
this document, the senior class, are not dying but are starting out cn a 
new journey, new experience, and a new life. We hope to be ab e to so-2 
the results of our various bequests. Being fair y sound in mind and bod ', 
we do solemnly swear this to be our last will and testament, and we give 
our official seal to this paper on this nineteenth day of June in the joar 
of our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Forty-twc.

CLASS GIFTS 



To Phoebe whose mem'ry is tricky 
We leave this black memo book, 
Instead of searching her mem'ry 
This is the best place to look. 



A box of chocolates fresh and sweet 
All by herself must Lettie eat 
For those she used to bring to school 
She gave away by the Golden Rule. 



For pretty little Mona 
A monstrous powder puff 
To beautify a nose we think 
Already fair enough. 



Some little dolls for Shirley 
Whose hearing doesn't matter 
For they will never weary 
At Shirley's steady chatter. 



For Henry the pessimist of our class 
We have this book of fun 
To show him the jolly side of life 
And put the blues on the run. 



For Sammy our basket-ball star 
Of whom we are all very proud 
A small basket-ball from, us all 
To make him stand out in the crowd. 



L 33 J 



For Gladys who always is crisp and fresh 
This box of starch we leave. 
With ruffles and ribbons and lacy mesh 
Our Gladys will always please. 

A typewriter for Dottie 
Seems the wisest gift, 
So her quite remarkable speed 
Will never need a lift. 

To Bill, our friend who loves to rest 
And always needs his slumber, 
We leave this nourishing box of Pep 
To make him a snappy number. 

For Betty a Bracelet to jingle 

To add to those on her arm 

And many the heart that will tingle — 

For Betty and bracelets have charm. 

If you know Bob Bunten at all 

You know that he is very tall, 

If he wears these weights upon his brow 

(Never mind, Bob, you can't have too much of 
a good thing!) 

To Larry we leave this assortment of gum 
So he can chew something besides his thumb 
If he chances to be where young ladies abound 
He also can pass the gum around. 

We leave to Bob our pencil snatcher 
A dozen new and pretty ; 
He may find them useful some day 
When hard at work in some big city. 

To Harriet our journalist 

Who surely gets around 

We're leaving this pair of roller skates 

So she can cover much more ground. 

These tools are for Opie Blanchard ; 
There's nothing he cannot fix, 
Mr. Fixit could take lessons 
From our Opie's bag of tricks. 

Eleanor Field is our class baby 
To her we leave this rattle. 
We know her winning baby ways 
Will help her in life's battle. 



[34] 



For Eleanor this writing paper 
Seems a useful pick, 
So she may spend her leisure hours 
In writing to her Dick. 

John A. den is very fond of swing — 
He likes almost anything. 

So we leave him tn-S record of "Old Black Joe," 
And he can tap a snappy toe. 

To Zulmira, beloved by all! 

Who is shorter than she is tall — 

We leave her a gift — we hope she won't fall — 

As we give her these stilts a gift from us all. 

Helen, who is very fond of sports 
But most of all for bowling — 
To her we give this bowling ball. 
We hope she'll keep it rolling.

JUNIOR CLASS 

First Row: Jane Peterson, Marie Reed, Constance Lovell, Robert Peterson, Dana Davis, 

Betty Lee Peterson, Miriam Arnold. 
Second Row: Phillip Mobbs, Lucille Short, Richard LaFleur, Melville Sinnott, Willard 

Putnam, Arthur Edwards, Virginia Hurd, Arthur Cornwell. 



JUNIORS 

The class officers for the year were: President, Robert Peterson; Vice 
President, Connie Lovell; Secretary, Arthur Cornwell; Treasurer, Dana 
Davis ; Council Members Betty Lee Peterson, and Arthur Edwards. 

This class has had quite a record in school activities. Over three

Last December the Student Council started the sale of defense stamps 
in the school. The stamps were sold three times a week in the reception 
room. Because this plan didn't work out satisfactorily, stamps were after- 
wards sold by the different class representatives to the members of their 
own class. Since this second plan has been in effect, a greater number of 
stamps have been sold and also a greater number of pupils have participated 
in stamp purchases. 

Betty-Lee Peterson, Phoebe Shirley, and Betty Green were the dele- 
gates sent to the Student Council Conventions. They attended these once 
a month for five months, After tire rationing went into effect, they were 
unable to attend any more. Three of the conventions took place in Cohasset, 
Braintree and Duxbury.

standings and much confusion which usually took place during elections.

supper, and a big subscription drive. 

A net profit of $86.75 was made from the magazine drive, which 
lasted from November 3 to November 13. 

The lobster supper was held on October 14 ,1942 in the D. H. S. dining 
room, which represented a Hungarian Courtyard. Forty-five checkered 
table cloths were colored by hand by students. One hundred and twelve 
tickets were sold. Several of the teachers prepared the menu of clam stew, 
lobster, peas, mashed potatoes, cabbage salad, sherbet, rolls, coffee, and 
apple pie and ice cream. 

On Friday, March 7, a delicious Baked Bean Supper, sponsored by 
the Partridge Staff, was given in the Duxbury High School dining room 
immediately after Town Meeting was adjourned. A menu of baked beans, 
brown bread, cabbage carrot salad, cold cuts, apple pie, and cheese and 
coffee was served. 

The Partridge Magazine came out during the spring term with stories 
and poems and original linoleum cuts made by the students to illustrate 
the stories.

League of School Publications held in Bridgewater, Easton, and Plymouth.

The class of '42 put on what was generally considered one of the finest 
senior class plays D. H. S. has ever had. The play, THE MAD HATTERS, 
was directed and produced by Miss Nancy Horton who did such a splendid 
job with last year's senior play. 



SENIOR CLASS PLAY 

THE MAD HATTERS was an excellent comedy about a slightly 'wacky' 
family, none of whom had ever earned his living. Since Mr. Hatter's air- 
minded mother provided for them, each member of the family devoted all 
of his time to his respective hobby. 

The play shows the amusing reactions of this family when Grandma 
Hatter decides to make them prove their abilities or forfeit their income 
within three months. 

The cast included : Joe Hatter, nuts about fishing, Lawrence Marshall ; 
Margaret Hatter, nuts about dramatics, Sylvia O'Neil ; Gigi, nuts about 
athletics, Betty Green ; Bunny, nuts about photography, John Alden ; Grand- 
ma Hatter, nuts about flying, Phoebe Shirley; Diana, nuts about Henry, 
Eleanor Raymond; Henry Harrison, Diana's fiance', Robert Bunten; Eliza- 
beth Harrison, Henry's mother, Dorothy Eldridge; Nancy Hay ward, a 
young actress, Mona Scholpp ; "Mugzie" Mullen, Gigi's athletic instructor, 
George Teravainen; Clara Sheldon, Hollywood agent Gladys Black; and

win again the championship. They played approximately twenty-three 
games and won them all except one lost to Plymouth and one to Middleboro. 

This year the big green team played many larger schools and beat 
them. They even received recognition in the Boston Globe as being the best 
team on the South Shore. One can be proud of the basketball team of 1941- 
42, for it has made a remarkable record in winning the championship of 
the South Shore League for the second consecutive year. This is the third 
banner Duxbury has won and the second trophy to be left in permanent 
possession of the school in the last four years under Coach Ralph Blake- 
man, a distinction that everyone may well afford to take pride in.
