Arthur Crosbie, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Crosbie of Cliff Road, was among the students at Proctor Academy, Andover, N.H., who helped fight a dormitory fire on Oct. 1. On that day, Roland Burbank, assistant headmaster and head of the firefighting program at the school, was giving the second lecture of the year to 40 new boys on how to fight forest fires. Suddenly the school's fire bell rang. The boys from Proctor and other volunteers squashed the blaze in an hour.

The remarkable words of William Shakespeare, interpreted by the Wellesley Players members and by singer Wesley Copplestone, provided a magical evening for the Players club March 8 at the Hunnewell School. Included in the program were scenes from "Romeo and Juliet" featuring Betty Copplestone as Juliet and Eleanor Stimets as her nurse; "The Taming of the Shrew" with Josephine Barnettt and Wyman Holmes; and the Pyramus and Thisbe scene from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with Elmer Stimets, Chuck Drury, Bob Cornell and three excellent young juveniles portraying the wall, the moon and the lion. These young men were Bob Cornell, Jr., Donnie Richardson and Jack Clymer, and those present enjoyed their antics thoroughly.

A popular combination of two first features, the light-hearted tale of pioneer days, "Many Rivers to Cross," and the suspense-filled "Dragnet." were on the weekend bill at the Community Playhouse "Many Rivers to Cross" starred Robert Taylor, Eleanor Parker, Victor McLaglen and Russ Tamblyn. "Dragnet." had its TV star, Jack Webb, in the leading role of the resourceful Sgt. Friday.

The eighth annual Wellesley Community Chorus Concert presented at the Junior High School Auditorium on March 11 was cited as the most entertaining and successful yet.

The "Stabat Mater" quartet, composed of Aletha Doolittle, soprano; Jean Kraft, alto; Raymond Smith, tenor; and George Fortune, bass brought raves, as did the petite dancers from the Irene Hogan School of the Dance who beautifully interpreted the ballet of the "Nutcracker Suite." The dancers were Jeanne Dervan, Mona Koelb, Madeleine William and Patricia Perry. Another highlight of the concert was the lovely solo by Dorothy Jay Robinson in the "Italian Street Song." Plaudits were also reserved for the accompaniment of pianists Dorothy S. Fisher and Dorothy Williams.

The Wellesley Townsman, Date unknown

More then 150 determined young men were given advancement awards at the campfire ceremony as parents, Scouters, and friends cheered their achievements. The Court was convened in the council ring deep in the woods of the Scouts' own Nobscot Reservation in Sudbury-Framingham. Two of the coveted Eagle awards were presented to Harold Schmidt of Troop 7W and Parker Blatchford of Troop 81. Eagle rank was the highest attainable in Scouting. David C. Williams of Explorer Post 7W was awarded the Eagle Gold Palm for his outstanding achievement in the time since he became an Eagle Scout. In all, there were 36 Wellesley boys honored.

Two young boys brought $4.80 to the Townsman office which they had earned themselves for the Jimmy Fund. Thomas Tillotson of Worcester Street and Donald Lambro of Windemere Road created some very attractive corsages of pine needles, Scotch heather, red berries and fern which they sold for 10 cents each. In three days they were sold out and had the above sum on hand. It was turned over to Leslie Bendslev, chairman of the Jimmy Fund in Wellesley.

Coach John Hughes' Junior High football squad posted their second overwhelming victory of the season, trouncing the Framingham freshmen by a score of 47-6 on the newly developed junior high field. Wellesley displayed a smooth single and double wing attack that kept Framingham on the defensive most of the time. Jack Bell scored two touchdowns on pass receptions from quarterback Dennis Anderson. Jim Alderson and Rocky Edwards also tallied twice each and Anderson scored the final touchdown on a quarterback sneak.
