- r /; 



A friendly smile, two merry eyes, and a 
winning way: that's our Mrs. Churchill. As our 
senior homeroom teacher she laughed at our 
jokes, shared our victories or defeats, and 
tried always to understand us, as hard as it 
may sometimes have been. As our class ad- 
visor she offered perfect suggestions, gave us 
needed encouragement, and warned us when 
we began to fall— all this in her usual gentle 
but effective manner. To you, Mrs. Churchill, 
we dedicate our 1953 Parf ridge. 



HALL OF FAME 



For field trips, Halloween parties, A.A. Sup- 
pers, and guidance talks we relied on Mr. 
Blakeman. His thoughtful advice and interest- 
ing projects helped us through the customary 
strangeness of our first years in high school. 
Always there with a trusting smile and a con- 
fident pat on the back, "Blakie" watched each 
one of us grow up. As we leave D.H.S. we 
leave also a faithful and true friend. To you, 
Mr. Blakeman, we dedicate our 1953 Part- 
ridge.

Celebrities 

D.H.S, March, 1953 — Along with 
the fun of four school years, mem- 
bers of the Class of 1953 have been 
honored in various interesting ways. 

In the freshman year Elaine Mac- 
omber won an award from the New 
England Aircraft School for the 
best essay on the class trip to Logan 
Airport. 

Ann Wentworth was the win- 
ner of a portable radio in the 
Sophomore-sponsored "Vacabu-lad- 
der" contest, an English project. 
Anne Kent had a poem published 
in the National High School Poetry 
Anthology. 

Honor ushers for 1952 com- 



mencement exercises were Lloyd 
Ferrell, Carl O'Neil, Peter Barker, 
Ronald Cheney, Edythe Pyy, Joan 
Walker, Anne Kent, and Elaine 
Macomber. Student marshal was 
Steven Loring. Earlier in the Junior 
Year Edythe Pyy was chosen as rep- 
resentative to Good Government 
Day. 

A trip to Nova Scotia by boat 
was the prize for Anne Kent's win- 
ning essay on the American Mer- 
chant Marine. Also in the Junior 
Year, Peter Barker and Anne Kent 
were chosen as representatives to 
Massachusetts Boys' and Girls' 
States. 



As the Senior Year progressed

finalists in the Cape Cod Cranberry 
Queen Contest. Steven Loring was 
chosen as the representative to 
Good Government Day. Elaine

Class Elects 
Officers 



LOST MEMBERS 
'53 MOURNS 



Each September found the class 
of '53 voting for officers with 
Miss Downey's reminder, "Popular- 
ity does not belong at the polls," 
clearly in mind. 

The Freshmen year found the 
following officers: President Bud- 
dy Hyslop, Vice President Elaine 
Macomber, Secretary Joan Walker 
and Treasurer Gail Woodsum. Peter 
Barker, Donald Barbosa, Elaine 
Macomber and Barbara Hulbert 
were elected Student Council rep- 
resentatives while Edythe Pyy and 
Barbara Hulbert were chosen stu- 
dent marshals. 

Officers for the Sophomore Year 
were President Elaine Macomber, 
Vice President Barbara Hulbert, 
Secretary Joan Walker and Treas- 
urer Peter Barker. 

As Juniors the officers were Pres- 
ident Elaine Macomber, Vice Presi- 
dent John Allen, Secretary Joan 
Walker, Treasurer Carl O'Neil. 
Ronald Cheney and Edythe Pyy 
were Student Council representa- 
tives and. student marshals were 
Carl O'Neil and Gail Woodsum. 



Duxbury High, Sept., 1952 — As 
Freshmen, the class of 1953 had one 
of the largest groups to enter the 
high school. At one time the class 
numbered near fifty. Gradually 
members of the class moved, at- 
tended other schools or dropped 
out to work. Soon the once remark- 
ably large group dwindled to just 
another class, but only as size goes. 

The Sophomore Year found Bud- 
dy Hyslop, Judy Griswold, Tom 
Bulu, Audrey Trongeau, Henry 
Merry, Walter" Johnson, Robert 
Bartlett and Skipper Ellis among 
the missing. Returning for our Jun- 
ior Year we found that we had lost 
Gratia Wrye, Susan Lund, Paul 
Bates, Herbert Johnson, Blanche 
Caron, and Tom Craig. As Seniors 
we missed Clayton Ricker, Dan 
Ellis, Donald Barbosa and Ronald 
Cheney. 

The class has never quite forgot- 
ten these students whose names re- 
main linked with memories of past 
years. 





A Traveling Class 

D.H.S., Nov., 1949 — Voices yelled 
"Wait for me!" and "Save a seat!" 
as the Freshmen climbed aboard 
the school bus, New Bedford bound. 
The Class of '53 was preparing to 
leave for a field trip! The New 
Bedford Whaling Museum was our 
first stop. We spent the morning 
there examining whale skeletons, 
going through the authentic scale- 
model of a whaling vessel, and se- 
lecting postcards. The afternoon 
found the sightseers* at the Wam- 
sutta Textile Mills observing the 
very interesting process of cloth 
manufacturing. At the end of the 
tour everyone boarded the bus with 
paper bags and pockets full of un- 
processed wool. 

Months later Mr. Blakeman took 
the class to Logan Airport. There a 
very interesting day was spent visit- 
ing the weather bureau, the control 
tower and the hangars. An airplane, 
opened for inspection, was soon oc- 
cupied by anticipating Freshman 
who strapped themselves into seats, 
just in case the plane happened to 
take off. The rest of the day was 
spent touring the propeller rooms, 
engine rooms, dope rooms and fi- 
nally the cafeteria of the New Eng- 
land Aircraft School. This, a most 
enjoyable field trip, was one of the 
highlights of our first year in high 
school.

ON STAGE 



D.H.S., March, 1952 — Although 
they never won a trophy in the 
Tournament of Plays, the Class of 
'53 has been a strong contender for 
top honors each year. 

As Freshmen the class gave "Jun- 
ior Buys a Car." Included in the 
cast were Ronald Cheney, Beverly 
Freeman, Edythe Pyy, Blanche Car- 
on, Loyd Ferrell, John Benevento, 
Thomas Craig, Martha Allen, Vir- 
ginia Washburn, and John Soule. 

"Drums in the Night" was pre- 
sented in the Sophomore Year with 
Gratia Wrye, John Soule, Elaine 
Macomber, Anne Kent, Martha 
Allen, Peter Barker, Joan Walker, 
and Susan Lund taking pans. 

In the Junior Year "Hurricane 
Hill" was the class play. In the 
cast were Steven Loring, John Soule, 
John Benevento, Martha Allen, 
Anne Kent, Virginia Washburn, 
and Ann Wentworth. 

The class never won the trophy, 
but what times they had learning 
their parts, rehearsing, and celebrat- 
ing when it was all over!

A PARTY -GOING 
CLASS 

D.H.S, Jan. 25, 1951 — The past 
few weeks have seen carloads of 
Sophomores drive mysteriously up 
to Tom Craig's house, jump out 
carrying cakes, cookies or records, 
and run through the snow to the 
house. 

These parties have been going on 
periodically since the Sophomore 
Dance. Activities vary each eve- 
ning — playing ping pong, play- 
ing cards, cooking, eating or ward- 
ing off party crashers who somehow 
seem to find their way silently up 
the snow-covered road. 

From the way things look the 
Sophomores are a party-going class. 




Winter 
Wonderland 

D.H.S., Jan. 20, 1951 — Early in 
December frequent class meetings, 
mysterious whispers and afternoon 
get-togethers forewarned the com- 
ing of the Sophomore Dance. 

Undecided as to the type of cos- 
tume to be worn at their dance, 
the Sophomores conducted a school 
poll to learn what the student body 
preferred. 

Afternoons saw boys as well as 
girls gathered at various houses, 
seated on the floor cutting snow- 
flakes out of onion paper. Over a 
thousand of these cut-outs were 
needed. Snowflakes were cut and 
strung by threes in study halls, 
home rooms and after school. 

Duxbury High hummed with in- 
dustry the day of the dance, the 
Sophomores' first. An effective "as- 
sembly line" of girls was created 
to put glitter on the otherwise ready 
snowflakes while the boys were 
chopping down evergreen trees 
from near-by woods. Finally the 
auditorium was transformed into 
a true "winter wonderland." Hang- 
ing snowflakes fluttered with the 
gusts of a fan, evergreens and 
spruces densely covered the four 
walls and in the center of the floor 
stood a large Christmas tree cov- 
ered with snow. A blue spotlight 
made the gym look like winter out- 
of-doors. 

At the end of a hard day, Sopho- 
mores inspected their work, tired 
but deeply satisfied. 





SENIORS HAVE 
BEACH PARTY 

D.H.S., Sept., 1952 — Duxbury 
Beach, a frequent Senior rendez- 
vous, was the site of the first party 
of the year. A full moon, a warm 
sea breeze and a roaring fire made 
the night a perfect one. 

The traditional hamburgers, hot 
dogs and marshmallows were cooked 
with much effort. Eating was ac- 
companied by the "delightful" mu- 
sic of the Red Nathan, Slim Soule, 
Steve Loring Trio. 

Rides on the beach in Johnny 
Allen's and Herb Wirt's '36 Fords 
and in Steve Denyer's "Sand-Flea" 
were topped off by Birdie's and 
Woodie's first motorcycle ride — 
four Seniors on Lloyd's red bike. 




OUR CLASSES 





MONDAY MOAMN&S.' 



EASTER 

D.H.S., April 6, 1952 — For days 
the Town Hall has been bustling 
with activity. Weeks before this, 
the Juniors' homeroom resembled 
a kindergarten, the floors strewn 
with colored scraps of paper and 
the desks covered with cut-out bun- 
nies, flowers and birds. Class meet- 
ings, trips to Boston and hours of 
planning have all been in prepara- 
tion for the Junior Prom. 

The doors of the Town Hall were 
opened early Saturday morning, the 
day of the dance. There was much 
yet to be done. Decorations had to 
be finished and put on the walls, 



PARADE 

the floor had to be cleared and 
swept and orange sherbert punch 
had to be made. 

Finally there it was, finished! The 
walls were covered with spring 
scenes, the orchestra was surround- 
ed by a small picket fence, the 
ceiling was lowered with crepe pa- 
per and right in the center of the 
floor was a tall, fluffy white Easter 
Bunny waiting for the music to 
begin. A party at Mac's to finish 
gallons of leftover punch and doz- 
ens of cupcakes climaxed a success- 
ful Junior Prom. 



SENIORS HOLD 
FIRST MEETING 

D.H.S., Sept., 1952 — An ambi- 
tious group of new Seniors gathered 
in their home room today for the 
first class meeting of the year. First 
on the agenda was the election of 
officers. Those elected were Presi- 
dent Elaine Macomber, Vice Presi- 
dent Carl O'NeiL Secretary Joan 
Walker, Treasurer Donald Linde. 

The class unanimously chose for- 
est green and white for its colors 
and the white rose for its flower. 



SENIOR ClASS PLAY 



That Brewster Boy, a three act comedy, was presented by the Senior 
Class on Thursday night, October 30. About a young boy, Joey Brewster, 
who thought his friend, Pee Wee, needed more experience with the female 
sex, the play was a tremendous success. Along with the weeks of hard work 
in preparation we had a good many laughs. We remember Johnny Poo 
Poo's hat, dice games, the radio backstage, five minute breaks, Steve's plaid 
shorts, food in the closet, the portable Crosley, Ernie's for pizza, ticket sell- 
ing, the gift for Miss Stover, and the party at "Wee Pee" Barker's to celebrate 
our performance. We had the cooperation of Mr. Bassett and his boys for 
the set, Mrs. Harrison and the Dramatic Club for the makeup, and individuals 
from the class for committee work. Is it any wonder that the press gave us 
enthusiastic notices?

MUSIC 



Since our Freshman year, all music at D.H.S. 
has been synonymous with Mrs. Wansker. She has 
capably and enthusiastically directed the Boys' and 
Girls' Glee Clubs, the band and the Girls' Choir. 

The Duxbury High School Band was organized 
by Mr. Donald Leach in 1949. It grew rapidly and 
was soon playing its first march, "Over the Top." 
In the past four years our band has played at many 
of the basketball games, for the P. T. A., for the 
Memorial Day Ceremonies, and for school assemb- 
lies. In 1951 the band marched and played in the 
Fourth of July parade. When Mrs. Wansker took 
Mr. Leach's place as band director she continued 
to teach the band to play new songs and to march 
while playing. The band uniform is green cordu- 
roy jackets, white pants, green ties, and white 
shirts. 

"Boys' Glee Club tryouts in the gym on Thurs- 
day." When this notice appeared in 1949 girls 
giggled and wondered who the handful' of boys 
would be that would show up for Boys' Glee Club, 
an institution thus far unknown at D.H.S. The "hand- 
ful" was twenty-five, and since then Boys' Glee 



Club has been one of the favorite student organi- 
zations. 

Until 1949, Glee Club meant to the girls one 
period a week when they could get together with 
the music instructor for a bit of singing. When at 
the first meeting Mrs. Wansker proposed several 
concerts and an annual minstrel show, Glee Club 
began to mean something alive, interesting and 
worthwhile. 

A third singing group is the Girls' Choir. This 
small group specializes in three part singing and 
"special" numbers. 

Since the first P. T. A. performance of the GJee 
Clubs there have been Christmas programs, more 
P.T.A. meetings, and spring festivals of music. In 
1952 the Glee Clubs and Choir presented a con- 
cert at Pembroke High School. Perhaps the most 
fun (and work) has been the annual minstrel shows 
— "Circus Days", "Latin Holiday", and "Shipboard 
Shennanigans". 

Best of luck in the future to Mrs. Wansker and 
to the music organizations which are such an im- 
portant part of our school.

THE DRAMATIC CLUB 

The Dramatic Club is one of the oldest and best organized clubs at 
D.H.S. Under the direction of Miss Gray, this club started the Tournament of 
Plays and the annual talent shows. In past years members of the Dramatic 
Club have taken many trips to Boston to see such productions as Romeo and 
Juliet, Mr. Roberts, and Where's Charley. 

The same excellent work in dramatics is now being carried on under 
the supervision of Mrs. Harrison. Whenever there is a play or a minstrel 
show, the club always lends a helping hand. The D.H.S. Dramatic Club is 
profitable not only for those interested in acting but also for those interested 
in the technical side of dramatics. A member has experience in the techniques 
of directing and acting as well as in make-up, prompting, lighting, props 
and publicity. To learn as much as possible about stage presence, voice, and 
stage craft is the Dramatic Club's goal.

STUDENT COUNCIL 




Some form of student government has long 
been a part of the Duxbury schools. The old Pow- 
der Point School had one of the first limited student 
governing systems in the United States. 

In 1945 the D.H.S. Student Council consisted 
of a small group carrying on with a limited type 
of student government. 

In 1946 the Student Council reviewed the prac- 
tices and consitutions of other high school councils 
by observations and correspondence. The purpose 
of this thorough study was to set up a workable 
student council. Results of the study proved suc- 
cessful. 

In 1949 the Student Council was set up to act 
only on those matters that concerned the student 
body through the rules laid down jointly by the 
administration and the council. Matters of admin- 
istrative dicipline and policy are not the business 
of the Student Council. 

At the same time the Student Council proposed 
a marshal system to help the students maintain 
business like conduct in their school life. The in- 
troduction of an effective marshal system resulted 
in real improvement of school citizenship. 



Shortly afterward a student court was formed 
by the Student Council for the purpose of hearing 
complaints of students and exercising judgment and 
punishment in those matters that pertained to stu- 
dent government rules and regulations only. 

In 1950 a Junior Council was established through 
the student council which functioned as its coun- 
terpart in the Junior High School. At the same 
time the Council experimented with a small school 
banking system. 

The Duxbury Student Council has always felt 
that a comfortable financial condition is akin to 
self-respect. It has sponsored many activities to 
maintain this condition, including winter movies, 
magazine drives, suppers, dances, and auctions. 

The D.H.S. Student Council has established an 
enviable reputation for itself as shown by the fact 
that the Constitution and plan of organization have 
been requested by many schools. Our own plan 
is being used as far away as Alaska. 

Our present council is headed by President 
Edythe Pyy, Vice President Peter Barker, Secretary 
Ann Wentworth, and Treasurer Carl O'Neil.

SPORTS 

U 1 I I 




BOYS' SPORTS 



GIRLS' SPORTS 



SOCCER was started at D.H.S. in 1949 and our 
class contributed four first team players — Don 
Linde, Lloyd Ferrell, Clayton Ricker, and Don Bar- 
bosa. The team showed great promise for the com- 
ing years and in 1950 won a good share of its 
games under the able direction of Coach King. 

1951 marked the inauguration the South Shore 
Soccer League which includes Pembroke, Kingston, 
Norwell, and Duxbury. Althouh '53 dominated 
the lineup and Don Linde was named all-scholastic 
in Massachusetts, we lost the championship to Pem- 
broke in a play-off. In 1952 we lost the champion- 
ship again — this time to Norwell by one-half 
point. 

The 1950 BASKETBALL season was one of the 
most successful ever completed in Duxbury. After 
defeating Kingston in the South Shore Tourney, the 
team played at the Tech Tourney in Boston Garden. 
In 1951, having lost all but one member of its 
championship team, the Green and White, under 
auspices of Coach Blakeman, ended up with a fair 
record. They entered the South Shore Tourney and 
the Small Schools Tourney. Although Don Barbosa 
was the only sophomore on the team, many others 
showed promise. 

In 1952 a fourteen game schedule was started 
in the South Shore League. Claytie Ricker and 
Lloyd Ferrell co-captained a team which, although 
still rebuilding, managed to beat Kingston, our 
traditional rival. In the South Shore Tourney, Dux- 
bury won its first game but lost its second. At the 
end of the season we had a wonderful basketball 
trip to Old Saybrook, Connecticut. 

Senior year we reported for basketball a few 
weeks early so that our new coach, Mr. Rothfuss, 
could get a look at us. Jack Ricker, Peter Barker, 
Jack Soule, Steve Denyer, and Steve Loring were 
the only veterans on the team, and Red Nathan, a 
newcomer, was added to the squad. With Jack 
Ricker and Peter Barker as co-captains, the Green 
and White started out like a "house afire" but the 
fire slowly went out and we ended with five wins 
and nine losses. Entering the South Shore Tourney 
for a second try, we won our first game but lost our 
second. 

In our Freshman year Claytie Ricker and Don 
Barbosa played first team BASEBALL, and the squad 
won three out of seven games. 1951 saw Peter 
Barker, Don Linde, Lloyd Ferrell, and Jack Ricker 
playing varsity ball for the first time, but both the 
1952 seasons were disappointing. Finally on May 
13, 1952, the team won the only victory for D.H.S. 
in two seasons. 



The '53 girls are certainly not lacking in athletic 
prowess. Five of them — Martha Allen, Barb Hul- 
bert, Anne Kent, Elaine Macomber, and Virginia 
Peterson — won their first varsity letter in HOC- 
KEY during their freshman year. The team came 
out third in the league race that year, and in 1950 
the hockey team won the first girls' banner to be 
hung in the D.H.S. gym, a co-championship with 
Marshfield. 

1951 was a record season — no team scored 
more than two goals against us. The last game, 
a heart breaker, saw Scituate top the previously 
undefeated green and white by scoring one goal 
in the second period to rob us of the championship. 
The 1952 season also had an unhappy ending. 
Again we- dropped the final game of the season 
and the championship, this time to Marshfield. 

Championships are not everything, of course, 
and there were rnany lessons to be learned in 
sportsmanship. 

BASKETBALL has always seemed to appeal to 
all classes at D.H.S., although the girls' teams dur- 
ing our first two years were not very successful. 
The day of our first game in 1952, Coach Coleman 
came to D.H.S., bringing with her a new type of 
zone defense, the ability to coach well, and luck* 
for our hoopsters. At the close of the season we 
had won eight games and lost four. 

The spirited '53 team was made up of experi- 
enced players with a reliable reserve to draw on 
for subs. Undefeated until we dropped our 11th 
game of the season to Marshfield on Friday the 
13th, this was a year in which the spectators finally 
became interested in girls' basketball. Losing our 
last game of the season to Scituate by one point, 
we lost the chance for a championship play-off. 

During our four years at D.H.S. the most suc- 
cessful team, banner-wise, has been the SOFTBALL 
team. In 1950 the team won half of its games, a 
fair record, and in 1951 it topped Hanover at 
Marshfield to win the championship. In 1952 the 
team hit, fielded, and ran its way to a second 
League Championship. 

Started in 1951, TENNIS, a young sport at 
D.H.S., is becoming a spring favorite. Contrasted 
to the original five interested in this sport, there 
were eleven candidates for tennis this spring. 
Coached ably by Miss Coleman, last year's team 
played matches with Scituate, Plymouth, and Hing- 
ham. We confidently expect that another season 
will see us champions in this sport, too.
