V r N P K N 1 I 1 1 I N CAMPUS THE OF AERIAL VIEW THE TAPER NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY-NINE 0 wx f ILQX -Z5 A lllllvan llllxlll pubfiffleo' by The Students of AMEIQICAN INTERNATIONAL CQLLEGE SPQINGPIELD, MASSACHUSETTS Foreword The Class of 1939 in the past four years has created a num' ber of precedents, and the 1939 Taper staff caught the spirit and has incorporated a number of changes in this issue of the yearbook. The size of the book has been increased both in content and dimension. The staff has endeavored this year to produce something new and different in style. It is hoped that the changes will become standard for future yearbook pub' lications. The Taper, though primarily the Seniors' liook, has become a virtual Who's who of college life. Between its covers is recorded the activities, organizations, and events which are an integral part of campus days. Human memory is a feeble thing, and the snaps, photographs, and pictures of persons and places dear to all will not fade from its pages. We are indebted to William Gibson and Halbert Speer for contributing the realistic candid camera snaps of members of the Senior Class, and to our faculty adviser, photographer, engraver, and printer for their unceasing effort and cofoperation in compiling this editon of the Taper. To PROFESSOR THEODORE ALEXIS WIEL whose counsel and cofoperation, whose friendship and interest have guided our course through the four years of our undergraduate days, with grateful hearts and rnuch appreciation, we dedicate the 1939 TAPER Z mf M Mk 1939 WN I E E THE LIBRARY h 19 59 HIL' Ill PLN Editorial Staff VIRGINIA RosEvER WILLIS EDWIN ALLEN EditorfinfChief Photographic Editor JAMES NESWCRTHY MADALINE REYNCLDS Assistant Editor Assistant Photographic Editor ALPHA CHENEY and MARGARET RYAN and CLAIRE MILLER RUTH STOUGHTCN Co'Literary Editors Stall Assistants Business Staff ATHERINE VCGLER DOROTHY PAGE Assistant Business Manager C Business Manager LILLIAN SIEGEL Copy Editor ADVERTISING ASSISTANTS Margaret Holmes Irving Feldman Ruth Kreiner William King Peter Ellis Harold Aseltine Charles Canavan Gerald Gordon Franklin Weiss Harry Musinski We i Frederick Connor X X Q Tiff TXHIDER 1939 WN CHESTER STOWE MCGOWN, Ed.D.

From the hills of far away and from the wilds of West Springfield they came, the tall, the short, the bruisers, and the weak, all to be built into a fighting machine around a nucleus of seven veterans. They had the scrap but lacked the experience that goes with collegiate ball. Ralston Brown and Bill Lawler, Pete's able assistants, prayed, sweated, and said other things over these embryonic modern gladiators and when September rolled around we went up to Amherst to play Massachusetts State. There is an "if" in all good situations and ours was "If we could have only stopped that one elusive halffbackf' From the competitive standpoint, the game of the season was against Worcester Tech on the day of October 15 at Pynchon Park. Never in our annals of football has so much football permeated the air. The ball was tossed around as though it were a basketball game. A couple of beautiful long passes by the engineers spelt our nemesis and we went under, but-it wasn't until the last whistle had blown that anyone could have even guessed as to the outcome, so spectacular was the play. All in all, we had a good seasonenot a winning -one, to be sure, -but one that augurs well for our future, with such men as Buzz Hanna, Ropulewis, Novak, Murphy to tote the ball, and with an ex-perienced line to open the holes "we'll carry the mail" far and wide this fall.

One thing may be said for this group of lads, that inexperience didn't deter them a bit. They dug in and showed a kind of cofoperation that puts new life into a coach and warms his spirit. Then, when they had given their best on the practice field, they went out against veteran teams and showed them what a hard' fighting team can do in the face of more experienced and veteran outfits. We opened with Clark and met defeat, but then we turned around and took it out on Bridge' water State the following week, and so it went, winning 2 and losing 4. No one expects an inexperienced team to perform miracles today in the sports world because there are too many really fine athletes in every field, and it is axiomatic that "a good big man will lick the good little man every time." Be that such as it may, we have every right to be justly proud of these boys who took our colors to other fields and defended them with honor and we have every reason to believe that 1939 will be the banner year in soccer that we are anxious to see.

This successful revival of basketball brings back memories of other girls' teams here in the past who went out of town to defeat many strong combines and who at that time could have given a lesson or two to some of the boys' teams. We are particularly proud of our girl hoopsters. They're an energetic, sportfloving, hard' working group who don't know the meaning of the word "quit," They're cofoperative and are willing to make sacrifices for the good of the team. Coach Frary hopes to bring some outstanding teams to this city in the future to play the pref liniinary games to the men's game.

The inahility of our team to meet Springfield during the earnival week, due to aforementioned conditions, was really one of our major disappointments of the season. Unquestionahly the main event of the season was the West Point game in which we took a clruhlving from a very ine group of gentlemen. Lack of practice handicapped us no end. How' ever, it was a game well worth watching. A few veterans from this year and fair weather conditions ought to send this sport on its way to lwetter and lwigger things next winter.

Many girls took advantage of the excellent opportunity to learn how to swim, while others looked forward to improving themselves. P Cne night during the winter our lassies were much surprised to find that many of our men couldn't resist the urge to swim, and when they came down the pool was full of the male species of the A. I. C. campus. Consequently, the girls didn't fare so well. Be that as it may, the women made sure that their domain was kept intact in the future. For a long time there has heen the hope th-at we'll have mixed swimming parties at the college pool and hoth athletic associations are going to work toward that end this fall.

While this report goes to press before we can give you any of the linefups for the spring, we do know that in addition to the stalwarts of last year we have a valuable addition in Phil Sweeney, who has a very high ranking in the City Tennis League, and many other lads, whose ability cannot be questioned, will be on the clay courts doing their bit for our college. The record of this sport in past years has been very commendable and we look to the team to add to the excellent record of their predecessors.

But in all justice, it isn't really as had as it sounds, Most of these girls can twang a bow string that will send an arrow right to its mark and the gratifying results of these girls' efforts has led Coach Frary to believe that a few matches may he arranged with the archery teams of other colleges during this coming fall season. Many of these girls never knew one end of a how from another 'hefore coming to A. I.

Riding at least twice a week at the Wilhrahani Riding Academy, many of these girls have become exceedingly proficient riders. With the city furnishing us with many riding trails and hridle paths through beautiful woods of South and North Branch and Willwraham, moonlight rides have become increasingly popular in addition to the afternoon canters. We hardly feel that our women are ready for the gruelling competition which is evidenced in intercollegiate horse shows, hut no group ever got any more genuine fun and pleasure than these horsewomen are now enjoying. page one lumclred IllfTLj"-l-0167 may WM' l'flPL'R Crew Entering into the field of varsity competition, our crew for the first time cut a wide swath in the opinions of some of its doubters to revive college rowing on the Connecticut River by beat' ing Williams College. They lost to Dartmouth the following week and then in a close race in New York they lost to Manhattan by threefquarters of a length, but evened the score with Dartmouth by beating them by six feet. This year, in spite of its handicaps and hardships, the crew has steadily forged ahead to take its place among the small college intercollegiate rowing circles and is looked upon as a crew of an unknown quantity by everyone whom they meet. The crew had the distinction of being the Hrst sport of A. I. C. to really make a long trip for the sake of competitive purposes when our boys traveled to Winter Park, Florida, to race Washington and Lee and also Rollins.

When it came to our turn at the bat, our "Sultans of swat" knocked the hide right off the ole apple and they could do the running necessary to bring in the counters. That being as it may, we still were out of luck when it came to relief pitching. Charlie Carroll, who did yeoman work last year, was pitched out. Many other aspiring tossers were "batted out," and so it went. This year we predict fand we hope we won't have to eat the print off this page in retributionj that our team will whistle the tune for our opponents to dance by. With Carroll, Novak, and two or three other relatively unknowns in the box and a wealth of material in the field for reserves, we like to believe fand do!j that we'll have a winner this year. Some of these boys have an eye for the ball that is a joy to behold.

We can attribute the start of this club to the women of D. A. R. who made many trips to the Y.W.C.A. in order to become proficient enough to challenge the Owen Street Hall men, and when they did, they had the contest pretty well sewed up. The interest shown in particular by Betty Patten has been responsible in developing this group as far as they have gone, and it is the fond hope of many that teams will be organized during this coming season which will provide another outlet for energy during the cold winter nights other than "hitting the books." Sailing Club On October 3, 1937, A. I. C. had a new arrival in the way of sports, when those two stellar seamen, Joseph Donoghue and Russ Cameron, incorporated the first Sailing Club. Handicapped though they were because of the lack of material, these boys left no stone unturned to put this new brain child on a firm footing. Such wellfknown sailors as Wally Krussel, Charlie Miller, Gifford, Frank Miga, Gordon Hale, and Art Griswold aided in carrying out a program in competition with crews from all over the East and Canada. Their first race, the International Dingy Regatta in Boston on October 22, found our boys being barely nosed out in t-he finals of the second class division. Other regattas were held at Brown, Dartmouth, and the Coast Guard Academy--fwhere, by the way, Bert Skelly and Ruth jergerson created a mild sensation by showing up to the start' ing time as members of the crew. This year a turnout of twentyfsix new men and the very needed addition of two boats ought to put Commodore Donoghue into the proper frame of mind to bring home the wellfknown "bacon" or whatever it is that "they who go down to the sea in ships" bring home.

One day when things were a trifle dull in heaven, the Great One decided a little excitement would do Him and the angels a world of good. Looking through His World Book for an exciting name, He found a strange notation. It was an entire page, on which were listed about sixtyffive names, and beside which Gabriel had noted, "Consider these together, Lord." "That's queer," mused the Great One, and sent for Gabriel for an explanation. "Well, you see, Lord," said Gabriel when he arrived, "that is the list of the members of the Class of 1939 of American International College. I took the liberty," here he hesitated, "of placing them together, for here it is fifty years since they left their college, a.nd not one of them," and his honest, an'gel's beard quivered in excitement, "not one of them who graduated that day in June, 1939, has died yet." "Oh, that's bad, very bad," answered the Great One. "You know, sometimes I almost believe we should amend that law about the good dying young. There seem to be more exceptions of late than anything else." And He plaintively began to plait His beard. After dismissing Gabriel, the Great One pondered the sad case of the Class of 1939 for some time. Then, remembering that heaven was a little dull just now, He decided to kill two birds with one stone, or pen, to be exact. "I'll ask them up here. I'll ask them up for a getftogetherf' His excitement mounted as the plan gathered shape. He reached for His quill, golden ink, and parchf ment, and was soon busy composing the letters. "I'll trust them to no one but myself," He thought as He chewed the end of His quill. "I want this done right. It's time they stopped gadding about the earth like youngsters. Downright foolish at their age. I'll settle this for once and for all." So one wintry morning when sixtyfodd former members of the Class of 1939 walked to their mail' boxes-or limped, or wheelfchaired, or tottered, or went to General Deliveryfthey discovered the following, written on parchment in letters of gold: Dear A.I.C. graduate of 1939: The time has come. You can no longer put this off. I am having a little reunion of the members of your class and request your presence. I simply won't take no for an answer. Write me telling me how soon you can get here, and all about what you've been doing for the past few years. I shall expect to hear from you about the reunion, for how can you miss it-how can you? THE GREAT ONE. Well, little did the Great One imagine what an uproar His simple letter caused. For the next few weeks many were the consultations of those graduates living in cities near one another, many were the .hurried references to Public Libraries, and many were the sheets of paper used in composing answers. F-or shame' ful as it appears, fifty years away from their seat of higher learning had dulled certain minds, and there was great doubt as to the origin of the letter, and the correct way to answer it. Finally, however, letters began to pour into heaven. Many were not addressed to heaven, but had been forwarded by the angels of various countries. "Heaven is certainly a different place,', chuckled the Great One as He saw the morning batch of earth letters. "Why, I haven't heard the angels sing so happily in months, and only yesterday the Dark One next door invited me over for tea. Now let's see, I wonder what is in the mail today." Since the last of the letters had just arrived that morning, Gabriel had placed them in alphabetical order with the others for the Great One to look over all together. Adjusting His spectacles, He began: Dear Great One fthe first one readj: Was so pleased to hear from you, and we shall be delighted to pay you a visit. I can't say when we shall be able to get away as the publishing business is booming right now. As you know, after working in Springfield for some years following graduation, I entered a New York publishing firm, and have since been busy climbing the ladder of success. I have almost reached the top, and am now spending every spare moment writing my memoirs. I am quite thin from carrying the manuscripts around with me, so we may be seeing you sooner than I expect. WILLIS E. ALLEN. page one hundred forty 1939 WM' ffl PIR Dear Great One: I, Martin Arslanian, am writing for myself and also for the other partners of the BlofUp Chem. Co., Marion Carter, Viateur Rousseau, Philip Walsh, Roland Tessier, and Louise Burpo. As you are aware, we have a flourishing business Qin fact, in the early days, purely unintentionally, we sent you a number of guestsj and doubt if we can be spared at the present. If you are willing to have us bring the business with us, just let us know and we'll be up with our test tubes in no time. We are accustomed to moving in a hurry, due to our unfortunate luck in always picking neighbors with particularly sensitive noses. Our business was started by accident when I, Martin, Viateur, and Marion discovered a gas of great value to the world. Since this was a gas which in time of war rendered entire armies helpless from laughter, we did not hesitate to produce it at full speed, and it was used in every war. When war became outlawed fdue, we irmly believe, to our invention's making it no longer practicablej we sought for a new means of making a living, and hit on our present successful method of extracting perfume from leaves of plants. Marion, who had some years before left the company to be married, now returned to give it her partftime attention. It was at this time also that we engaged the services of Roland Tessier. Like us, his work in the surgery of soldiers had been greatly cut down due to the outlawry of war. We consider ourselves fortunate indeed to have around a man of his administrative ability the keeps our books, and has entire charge of personnelj. And it is often very convenient to have a doctor when one of those laboratory accidents which will happen suddenly does happen. I almost forgot to mention, when we give our annual employee enter' tainment, he is always the star of the show. A few years ago we engaged Louise Burpo and Philip Walsh. They each hold double positions with the company. Louise is in charge of women's sales, and we have found Philip invaluable in collecting bills. fWe call him Bulldog Walsh-not to his face, of course., In their spare time, both are studying an exotic new perfume to be obtained from the carrot plant. Both Philip and Louise had excellent teaching positions before they came with us, but they had tired of them, and wanted to work with old friends. As they put it, "I guew it's just the gypsy in us." So you see, Great One, we feel a responsibility to our business, and unless we take it with us, shall have to forego the pleasure of a stay with you. I am enclosing some samples of our new perfumes which I thought your angels might enjoy. Ever your obedient servant, MARTIN ARSLANIAN. P.S. I deliberately omitted mention of our President and guiding spirit, Emerson Fitzgerald. But I cannot hide anything from you, Great Cne, therefore I feel duty bound to tell you that after forty-five years of faithful service to our cause, Mr. --I cannot bear to mention his name-deserted us to become a physicist, and is now smashing atoms somewhere in California. In addition, after conferring with my partners, I have decided that you should know that your letter will probably never reach Robert Kirkland. Until ten years ago he was our company lawyer, and was all that a company could ask--we never lost a. suit. But in 1979 we discovered that all his cases with our com' pany had been settled over the bridge table with his lawyer cronies fit had been pingfpong until that incipient paunch began to appearj. When we chided him, in a kind but very firm manner, he burst into tears-and left the country. We understand he is in Greenland, skiing and writing children's books, which his brother' inflaw, Willis Allen, publishes. He allows no mail to be sent him, except the weekly funnies. Y'r ob'd'nt s'r'v'nt, M. ARSLANIAN. :ie ac as wr Dear Mr. Great One: Robert Bidwell, Sally Bielanski, and I received your letter, but will not be able to attend until the regular business slack sometime in the summer. Our Happy Hearts' Club in New York keeps us busy except for a few short months in the summer. About ten years ago I came North for a visit after the death of my husband. I met Sally and Robert by accidentg they were both working for a large Settlement House, Sally doing social work, and Robert in the office. We decided there were too few clubs where people on the wintry side of life could meet and enjoy themselves. We knew the way to men's hearts was through their stomachs, and that the women's hearts couldn't be far away, so we started the Happy Hearts' Club, which caters to persons over Hfty, and gets them acquainted over my special Southern fried chicken dinners. page one h1lTld'l'5dfOTlj"UT16 sie XX Wh Xlly Tiff TAIPIER 1939 XZ 'ZR From the first we offered all kinds of pleasant entertainment. An old friend of ours, Helen Hayes, was in charge of the floor show. But one night when she had been working with us for about a year, a distinguished young man of about fifty walked in and watched her dance with a great deal of interest. For weeks he paid her ardent suit, so much so that it affected her nightly polka. Then, just as suddenly as he had walked into her life, he walked out. She left our club, an embittered woman. We heard that she is running a school somewhere. We pity the pupils. The man was Edward Shanley, head of the world famous Chinese munitions company, and on a visit to the Sta-tes from his home in China. Because of this unforf tunate experience we have put the entertainment in charge of Guy Buonomo, who had formerly helped Robert Bidwell with the books. We Hnd a man can deal with such incidents with much 'less emotion. Sally takes charge of the members of the club, and sees that they become acquainted, and that their conduct is at all times befitting ladies and gentlemen. We pride ourselves that we have never needed a bouncer. I have charge of the running of the club, supervise all meals, and see that the guests are happy and wellffed. Needless to say, our club fills a dehnite need, it is the only one in New York which furnishes earphones at every table. . It may be possible for us to take turns remaining at the club, and for the rest to come to your reunion on time. Ishall bring a good supply of my chickens, for I am sure the ones in heaven must be pretty ethereal fare. Would you care for us to bring some of our entertainers? ANNA BIRNIE. Dear Mr. Roosevelt: My pals and I think it is a dirty trick for you to rub in the fact that we shall never be able to visit heaven. You know very well there has been a special suite reserved for us for several years, next door to your house, in that place mn by the Dark One. We don't know which is worse, to stay here and be hounded by creditors, or to shuffle off and join the Dark One. We graduated from A.I.C. as good account' ants, Ed Moore and I-and then your false prosperity came along, and with it temptation, in the persons of Donald Coogan, Leo Medwin, Lillian Siegel, and Cliff Wheeler. They had a scheme for selling shares in a "perfectly legitimate" afbabyflionfinfeveryfhome business. Lured by your promises of good times, we spent our profits before we received them. Twenty years ago this May the company busted. We come out in May. We have been corresponding with one another, and have decided to remain on the straight and narrow. We intend to organize a quiet little African platinum corporation. We forgive you, but will never forget that you were the cause of our being shut out of our own class reunion. So there! CHARLES CARROLL. :ie as if Ss Dear Great One: On behalf of Emanuel Slotnick and myself, may I regretfully decline your kind invitation? We feel we have traveled far since college days and are not the type to mix with angels. If, however, you know of some place near you where we might board, we may come and watch the rest of you, from next door, for example. Shortly after our graduation, Great One, Manny and I received a phenomenal offer to become economics and publicity directors, respectively, of Hitolini's totalitarian state. We worked for him for years, and permitted unethical methods to be practiced, because we thought it was for the good of the country. Imagine our heartbreak when, a few years ago, we were released Cand given the order of the Golden Snakej to make room for young blood. Now the two of us are running a combined grocery store and delicatessen, and are slowly regaining selffrespect-I in artistic window decorations, and Manny in inspired weekly circulars. Regretfuuy' STANLEY CIOSEK. 14 :lf if :lf Dear Great One: Was surprised but pleased to hear from you. I should like to attend your reunion. Several A.I.C. friends of mine received their invitations before I did, I was beginning to wonder if I would get one. I tried a number of jobs after I graduated, and finally joined the Texas Oil Company in New York, where I have been connected for many years. My friends swear I'd have been Mayor of Springfield if I had stayed there. I swear I'll be Mayor of New York if I have enough time. The Texas Oil Company swears I am spending too much time away from my work. I may see you very soon. FREDERICK CONNOR. page one hundred fortyftwo 1939 THE Tfzllgfk Dear Mr. Great One: I think it will be lots of fun-for most of us. At present I am writing book jackets for Willis Allen's publishing company, but will be glad to give up the work as I find modern novels very confusing.

Elizabeth Krusell, who conducts the Secretarial Department, and chaperones the girls during their Florida vacation, which the school alternates yearly with the European trip conducted by Miss Garland: and Ina Melenek, who teaches Sociology two days a week Qshe spends weekfends with her husband, and the other two days in her pet shop, where she is famous for her vocallyftrained canariesj. I have had three sabbatical years coming to me for some time, Great One, but I am timid about asking for them. The headmistress, Madame Helene Hayes, is as strict with her staff as with the pupils, and, frankly, often makes life very difficult. She 'feels very deeply the great responsibility of the young lives entrusted to her care, but at times is too harsh. Why, she won'-t even allow the girls to have a Girl Scout Troop. And that is why, Great One, I do not know when I shall be able to attend your reunion. Perhaps if you gave Madame a special invitation, she would declare a holiday and we could all come. Hopefully yours, MARGARET CROCKER. wk sr as as Dear Great One: My partner and I should very much like to come to your reunion, in fact we should like to stay in heaven, if there is room. As you know, Chet Eisold and I have been engaged for the past twentyffive years in the You Name 'Em, We Count 'Em germ business. We do everything from exterminating houses, to count' ing the germs in a sterile cooker. Business was rushing ten years ago, when that fad swept the country about Water being poison, and al-l bathing a form of suicide. At that time we hired Richard Culver, for we found the need of a keen mathematical brain in counting beyond the tenth million. Now, however, business is very slow. That invention of a soapstone nosefguard to be worn in all waking hours fwhile embarrassing to the younger generation, has evidently done the trickg we seldom get a job which brings more than two page one hundred fortyfthree XM X! 75 xxl Z THE Tflljfl? 1939 W million germs. If we come to the reunion, we should like to do any defbugging which you may happen to need up in heaven. We have heard that some of your angels' robes have got pretty dusty, and that ticks are beginning to get into the harps. Tha.t's just the kind of a job we like. If true, let us know, and we shall be up immediately. ROBERT CROKEN. :ze Pk if fi: Dear Great One: I should like to attend your reunion, and my wife would like to know if she may come, too fshe graduf ated the year afte-r I didj. My time is my own as I retired from active business eight years ago. As you know, I spent several years after graduation in the dental laboratory, then returned to A.I.C. to teach, and finally settled on a small farm raising animals scientifically for laboratory use. I was partially financed in this venture by Peggy Ryan, who had won a slogan contest and was looking for a good investment. In the jargon of the lab animals themselves, she more than doubled her money in the first few days. At present my wife and I are living on the farm, but raise nothing but chickens for our own consumption. I also look after the place next door, which belongs to G. Wellington Meacham, the personal secretary of the international financier, Taylor QTexj Hill. Mr. Hill's New England ranch is not far from here, but neither he nor his secretary are in their homes more than a few 'months of the year. G. Wellington, often called the smile in front of the brains of high finance, wrote me that he and Mr. Hill will probably fly up to the reunion sometime after their spring meetings in Geneva. Since it is now time to feed the chickens, I shall close, thanking you again for your invitation. DONALD EGAN. ak ak ff wk Dear Mr. Hitler: I suppose you wonder how I found you out-I knew you immediately from your letter, for y-ou are the only person who would call himself a great one. Your reunion will no doubt be amusing, but unforf tunately I cannot attend. My services are greatly needed here in the United States. There has been ,dangerous talk, you know, of "isms," and Wilfred Bourque and myself are doubling our lecture itinerary in order to reach more people with our message, which we call "Workers, Unite." As you know, I was all set for a diplomatic career, but muffed it by speaking my -mind to the premier of a very minor nation. I have always regretted .that it was such a small nation which cost me my career. After that I joined up with Bourque in his lecture tours, and we get along very well, with my wholesale novelty business as a side line. If our spring schedule is not too heavy, Mr. Hitler, perhaps we may find time to drop in, but I doubt it. MILTON FRoMER. :ie ak wk wr Dear Great One: I know I am going to meet many of my patients when I come to your reunion. I have been doing Public Health Work for several years, and it is surprising the number of guests I have sent you. It might be better if I stayed in a different part of the house in case some of the more stubborn cases saw me. I know you understand what I mean. ELEANOR GARVEY. ak wr wk 4: Dear Great One: Edward and I appreciate your invitation. We are planning to attend sometime in the late spring, and will leave the business in junior's hands. We have been spending the winter for the past several years in California, so he is used to managing the store. Edward is planning to contact Donald Egan, and they will have a Hnancial statement ready for the class. Until then- CMRSJ PAULINE HEAD. ac wk sf vi: Dear Great One: Your letter was very timely, as we had been meaning to get in touch with you for some time. I shall be pleased to attend, and Philip would like to know if you would be willing to try some of his latest pipe' organ models, if I bring them along. Your famed angel chorus certainly deserves the best possible accom' paniment. I have been keeping house for so many years that I shall welcome a vacation. fMRs.y ANITA HouoHToN. page one hundred forty-four 19 39 TMA' TA PKR Dear Great One: Miriam Russell and I are very eager to come to heaven, and would like to know if you could use the services of our Casework bureau? We specialize in statistics of people over sixty, and do not employ workers under that age, No doubt you have many angels in heaven who have been there so long that you have forgotten them. In a short time our eflicient bureau could have the vital-or should I say spiritualfffacts about all of them. Miriam and I visit the persons to become statistics, Anne Penn statistizes them in attractive graphs, Howard French applies their problems to world economic causative conditions, and Marion Bolger and Virginia Rosever are in charge of the ofhce, which draws up the casefhistories. Anne's hand is somewhat shaky, and Marion and Virginia are losing speed at the rate of ten typing words a day, but then Miriam and I are not so spry as we were-so we all get along very well. I speak for all of us in saying that we should like to study angels for a change. The people we study here on earth are becoming pretty tiresome. They are all too eager to work, and such an attitude is very confusing to us casefworkers who are trying to see that they get relief. JANICE KNAPP. Pk Pk as ae Dear Great One: With my colleagues, I am cofowner of a trailer which brings painless education to children all over the country. After twentyfodd years of uneventful married life, we decided to combine business with pleasure and have a little fun fwe left our husbands in the care of friendsj. So Clara Ross, Barbara Bassett, and I teach country children every summ:r f is Mathematics, Latin, and English respectively. Our special method, which all children laugh and joke happily about, is to sing their lessons to them. It is true that sometimes they do not learn much, but they learn it in a happy atmosphere, and that is what counts. Until last summer we had Max Cannom with us, to drive for us and keep our books. But last August he met a widow with two thousand head of cattle, so he took our blessing and stayed behind when we left. Said he couldn't get the wedding bells out of his ears. Uhfhuh! Now we drive ourselves, and will prob-ably drive up to the reunion this summer. Are there any little angels in the outlying districts of heaven who would appreciate an education by the singfsing method? CLAIRE MILLER. Pk 14 wr :Ie Dear Great One: We received your letter and will come to the reunion as soon as we get an afghan knitted, for which we have just received an order. Shirley Pond and I happened to be in a yarn shop together several years ago, when we met Beatrice Dresher. Since the three of us are widows, we decided to band together and start a little business. We now have a small knitting shop, and make enough to take us to Florida every winter. We made only a bare living until three years ago, when we hit on the idea of taking orders for knitted muiflers. We got in touch with members of the club run by Anna Birnie and her partners, and now regularly supply the customers with mufIlers. They say the club is a little draughty, and the scarves keep them from catching cold. So many of the members wear them that one of the dances of the evening is dedicated to them. It is called the Scarf Dance. We shall try to catch up with our orders, and as soon as the afghan is finished, you may expect to see us. PoPPY RAISSI. vi: :Ie :Ie wk Dear Great One: I, Catherine Vogler, am writing you to ask which would be the shorter route to heaven--+from I-Iawaii or from Alaska? I have two expeditions to make in the next few months, and when I know the best way to heaven, I shall plan our itinerary accordingly. I am at present a Public Expeditionary Counsel. My business is most interesting, and takes me to all parts of the globe. I spoke of the next two expeditions above, which I shall undertake for the Mockingbird Manufacturers, and the AntifBlubber Society of America, respectively. In Hawaii, my duty will be to convince the islanders that Mockingbird Mother' Hubbards are the garments they want, and Nature intended them to wear. And in Alaska, Ishall conduct an impressive campaign to make the natives use something other than whale bluhber in their lamps. My motto will be, "It's the whales' blubbers now, but whose will be next?" In both these expeditions my theme of campaign is first energy, and then brakes. I do very well. I shall expect to hear from you soon. A roadfmap would help me a great deal in planning my course. You might send it down with the next stork. CATHERINE VOGLER. page one hundred fortyffve ale W Alle 1X Wh THK TAPEIQ 1939 Dear Great One: I regret being unable to attend your reunion. I am at present engaged in heading the Sing Sing School of Business. After an intensive course at Harvard Business School, I took up this work, in an effort to aid those whose unfortunate business ideas have placed them in wrong with society. Did I mention that my work there is the result of a certain misfortune on my own part and therefore not the voluntary work you may have assumed? Perhaps later, Great One, I shall be free to attend. DONALD SGOTLAND. Ik Dk bk ak Dear Great One: Your invitation will come in very handy. My partners and I expect to declare bankruptcy very soon, and now we shall have a place to go when the sheriff is finished with us. For some years now Annie Tinti, Edward Dickinson, and I have been operating our International Cuisine f"Food for the mind, food for the stomachnj. We have traveled in twentyfseven countries in the last few years, for our custom has been to give large cities the benefit of our cuisine for six months at a time, and then to move on. The cuisine consists of a bookflined room, where one may eat while having any book of his choosing read to him. We made a good deal of money on this, for though the customers ordered fullfcourse dinners, they were invariably asleep after the salad-due to Edward's soothing reading. Annie has complete charge of the food for parts other than the mind, while I am the advance agent, and generally travel on ahead. Our business has dwindled terribly of late, due to the public's fondness for concentrated food pills. Therefore we are most glad to come to heaven, for where else could we -go? RUTH STOUGHTON. wk an ar wk Dear Great One: My wife, Dot Titus Hoffenbach, regret she cannot come your fine reunion. Too busyf-many new calves. She marry me many years ago when I in States to learn business of running estate in Morovia. She hear about me being Count and having castle. She love me. She marry me to get away from the farm. She find out estate is dairy, with six barns of nne Jerseys. Good joke, but sometime when she carve the meat, she 'look at me mighty funny. Maybe I the one to come to reunion. Good joke. CouNT SIZZLE HGFFENBAGH. SF wk bk wk Dear Great One: I should love to come .to the reunion, but I am afraid I cannot. I once wrote a prophecy for my class in college, and have been hunted ever since. At present I am operating the elevator in Blank's Department St-ore here in Chicago, but I saw an old classmate in the store the other day, so I probably shall not be here much longer. Terribly sorry I cannot attend, Great Gneg it seems you and I are never going to get together. PEGGY RYAN. JF ak Pk ak As He finished the last letter, the Great pressed a buzzer. When Gabriel appeared, He nodded him to a seat, chuckling. "Get ready to take a letter, Gabriel," He said, and laughed to himself. "They're priceless. I'd feel selfish not to share them. I'll bet their college just hated to see them leave. Ready, Gabriel?" Gabriel nodded. The Great Cne tipped back on the rockers of His chair, put the tips of His fingers together, and thought. Then He began: "Dark One, Next Door to Heaven. Dear Nick: I am going to have a most interesting lot of guests in the .near future, some of whom are just your type. I am enclosing a list of them. Tell me which ones appeal to you, and I'll send them over to stay with you. But I want them to have the best, mind you, nothing but the best . . ."

The culmination of our four successful years at the American International College. We recall with mixed emotions the ups and downs, the laughs and disappointments in happy reminiscence of our sojourn at the College on the Hill. lt does not take much thought to remember the first of our college days. It seems but yesterday that Dr. Cobb gave us his dissertation on the squeaky arm, and we danced to the strains of the 'LTiger Rag" in the D. A. R. parlor at our Freshman Reception. By this time we considered ourselves a necessary part of the college, but it did not take long for our selffassuredness to change to meekness as rumors of initiation reached our ears. Who can forget the rolled' up pants . . . the buckets of water . . . the trek to the City Hall . . . Tessier's moustache . . . trips to Water Shops Pond? But we survived the ordeals of this week and emerged as fullffledged college students. After recovering from the scare of our Hrst mid-year exams, we organized our class with the help of Paul Lyman, President of the Student Council. The results of our class election were Ted Connors as President, Babe Meacham as VicefPresident, Ricky Daniels as Secretary, and Betty Krusell as Treasurer. Harry Daum was elected to be our Memberfatflsarge. March found three of our members playing important roles in Pygmalion and Galatea, the major draf matic production of the college year, under the direction of Mr. Charles Woodbury, Ginny Oliver, Polly Head, and Ed Pomeroy ably contributed to the success of the play. With this successful year behind us, we were fully launched on our college career. The end of summer vacation found us as Sophomores eager to assure the Frosh ofa "warm" welcome. Ted Connor, Ed Pomeroy, and Roland Tessier certainly made life miserable for their victims! The popularity of Ted Connor, Ricky Daniels, and Babe Meacham placed them again in their respec' tive offices. Don Egan was elected Treasurer and Peg Ryan, MemberfatfLarge. We aren't likely to forget the thrill of our first football game under lights. Too bad New Britain had to beat us! The traditional Sophomore amateur night was put on with the true spirit of our class and was declared one of the best ever. In December our class, in conjunction with Springfield College, was making plans for a winter carnival. Because of the lack of snow and ice, the activities started at the Coliseum and came to a successful end with the Coronation Ball presided over by Queen Lois Wightman and King Roy Nuttall. Once again our class was represented in college theatricals. The Dev:'l's Host claimed three of our members, Roland Tessier as the realistic Devil, Donald Egan, and Willis Allen. A. I. C.'s curriculum branched out with the introduction of the School of Public Affairs under the supervision of Professor Wiel. Our class, thinking that Professor Wiel did not have enough to do, unanimously elected him to act as our class adviser-and thankful we all are for his words of wisdom. In the spring of the year the flooded waters of the Connecticut kept many of us from classes and put others to work caring for the flood refugees. Recovering from the flood, our attention was turned to matters at home. Because of the complexity of the prevailing Student Government, it was thought wise during our Sophomore year to organize an entire new form of government. With this in mind, the present Student Faculty Council was instituted with Roland Tessier and Edward Pomeroy representing our class. We now faced our allfimportant Junior year. Gnce again our class voted for the officers of the preceding year with the exception of the Secretary, to which office Polly Head was elected. The campus was thrilled with the success of our football team. CofCaptains Fitch and Siniscalchi led the team to a position of seventh place in the smaller colleges of New England. page one hundred forty-eight 1939 THIQI W1 Pffk As a moneyfraising affair the Class of '39 sponsored a dance at the Hotel Kimball with Tiny Tim's Orchestra furnishing the music. We can remember this only as a social success! Our college welcomed with open arms the addition of Wright House in the spring of our third year. The need for just such a recreation center had long been felt. The success of the crew, in its second year of competition, provided campus talk for several weeks. We like to think that our own Don Scotland as coxswain and Howard French as spare man had much to do with its success. In thinking of our junior year we invariably remember the success of our junior Week from May 15 to 21, and such times as Mountain Day under the supervision of Max Cannom, Open House Day planned by Janice Knapp, and the annual Walter Rice Prize Debate in charge of Milton Fromer. But best of all was our own junior Prom directed by Willis Allen, with the help of Betty Krusell, Ralph Carboni, Catherine Vogler, Polly Head, and Ed Pomeroy. In spite of the chilly weather, the Holyoke Canoe Club proved to be an excellent place to dance to the music of Ken Reeve's Orchestra. The fall of '58 saw us back on campus posing as dignified Seniors already planning activities for what promised to be our most exciting year. Class election found the former leaders reelected. Donald Scotland was now our new MemberfatfLarge. The hurricane proved to be a great loss to the college. An irreparable loss was the death of our friend, Wallace Krusell, the President of the Class of '38 and a prominent alumnus. The loss of several trees necessitated the raising of funds to replace the trees, and the campaign started off with a Tree Tag Day. Two new Greek letter societies found their way on our campus during this year. Alpha Iota Gamma Sorority and Phi Delta Mu Fraternity took their place among active campus organizations. The social season was ushered in with the Senior Prom at the Hotel Kimball, with the renowned Barbary Coast Orchestra unbending the jitterfbugs. Proud we were of C. Wellington Meacham, whose brilliant work on the gridiron and the basketball court did much to raise the position of A. I. C. in the Held of sports. And Emerson Fitzgerald, whose conscientious and brilliant scholastic work earned for him maximum honors at the top of our class. Graduation loomed nearer. Our days were filled with plans of rings, caps, gowns, graduation. Thus with Class Day and Commencement activities, the curtain falls upon our college careers, and we look forward to the Class of 1939 to carry forth to honor the name and traditions of A. I. C. PAULINE E. HEAD and EDWARD Porvnaaov. page one hundred fovtyfnine we W ale 75 Tfvfltfi Tfilfpffk 1939 Class Will We, the one and only Class of 1939 of the American International College, Springheld, Massachusetts, considering ourselves in full possession of all our faculties, wits, and other paraphernalia, do hereby publish our First and Last YVill and Testament. Having paid in full our just debts to all those creditors who have been able to catch up with us, we do bequeath the rest of our vast estate as follows: First: We name as our executors the students of the School of Public Affairs. It will be good experif ence for them. Second: To Dr. McCown we bequeath our sincere appreciation for all that he has done for us during our four years at A. I. C. Through him our college life has been made much more easy and enjoyable than it would have been otherwise. To our advisers, and to all of those busy faculty members who have devoted their time and energy to helping us, we leave our deepest gratitude. Third: To the school we leave little now because of our limited financial resources, but we promise that when we make our first million we shall take steps toward landscaping the grounds, realizing that mythical gym, and building a few new dorms, labs, and recitation halls. In all seriousness, we leave A. I. C. with regret, for we feel that it is one of the best colleges there is, and we have enjoyed working and playing here for the past four years. Fourth: To the Junior Class we leave the inestimable honor of being called the Senior Class. This is truly an appellation well worth three years of hard work. We leave them, with no malice, the same worries which we experienced about graduat' ing, and we hope that they will come out on top. We have found, by the way, that these are the worries which are responsible for the universal dignity of Seniors. Lastly, we leave them the privilege of making all their Commencement arrangements. It will be a lot of work, but it will also be a lot of fun. Having been so generous to the Class of 1940, we recommend that they be as unselfish as we were, and pass these bequests on to the Class of 1941 next june. We should also like to leave the following specific possessions of some of our members: Willis Allen leaves his journalistic ability to the editor of next year's Taper who, no doubt, will need it. Cuy Buonomo leaves to next year's ticket committees all the headaches he has suffered, or new ones just like them. Ted Connor leaves his ability to manage the annual Ice Carnival to the chairman of next year's committee. Norma Crehore, with the rest of those third floor Seniors, leaves Lee Hall, but does not leave that menagerie which she has made famous. Donald Egan leaves his heart behind him-aa strange bequest for a future doctor to make. Emerson Fitzgerald, after much persuasion, leaves his bashfulness and blushes to be divided among the foremost campus ladyfkillers. Milton Fromer leaves his ability to argue to the A, I. C. Debating Team: they've been using it anyway. Helen Hayes leaves her ability to heckle the faculty to any junior who wants it. Don't rush, Juniors. Pauline Head we take with us. She is too valuable a class secretary to be left behind. Taylor Hill leaves his capacity to be all over the state at one time to any undergraduate enter- prising enough to do what he did. Betty Krusell leaves her telephone-we hope. It certainly has been useful. page one llundred jifty 19 .sp Tiff Tal PBR G. Wellington lvieacham takes his foothall technique with him, along with his many other talents. It's a tough break for the school. Ann Penn leaves her seat in the O. K. to whoever gets there first. Edward Pomeroy leaves his position as Mr. Wiel's rightfhand man to some worthy student of Puhlie Affairs. Shirley Pond, with Elaine Cordes and Anne Tinti, leaves for a much hivifer venture, matri' mony. Good luck, girls. bb Poppy Raissi leaves her record as a faithful attendant at class meeting to all those who need it for an example. From some of the sputtering we hear, we gather that there will he plenty of use for it. Peggy Ryan leaves the opportunity to do as much for the Yellow jacket as she did to anyone capahle of holding her position. Virginia Rosever leaves her flair for wearing clothes to all wouldfhe models. Vie Rousseau leaves the lah at last. "Parting is such sweet sorrow." Manny Slotnick leaves his hent for puhlicity to any hudding young reporter with a nose for IICWS. Roland Tessier leaves a place which will he hard to fill hecause of his varied capaihilities and activities. Kay Vogler leaves her famous husiness ahility to the new husiness managers of the Yellow jacket and Taper. Phil Walsh leaves his harem in Wright Hall. No douht someone will he ahle to use it. Thus we suhmit our First and Last Will and Testament on this 12th day of june, Nineteen Hundred ind ThirtyfNine, Signed, CLAss or 1939. We, the undersigned, in the presence of many influential witnesses, do herehy suhserihe our names as attesting witnesses: CH.txRLiE Mc.:CAR'rHY, JULIUS CAESAR, FRED ALLEN, BARoN MUNCHAUSEN, PANDoRA, DoRo'rHY LAMouR, LlNCLE JIM, CAPMIN Kino. page one lnmdred fiftyfone silk N Ala at f THE MIPER Final Faculty Quiz june 13 By Paorizssok REED M.

Time-A summer day, Characters- Chester-a sturdy boy with neatly smoothed hair. Dallas, Jr.-a sturdy boy with a shock of unruly hair. Garrettfa sturdy boy. Albafa reserved, frankflooking girl. Helen-Jher good friend. Teddy--a very masterful boy. Lutherfan industrious boy, but absentfminded. Stuartga cheerful lad with a parable for every occasion. Ida-a very shy little girl. Annah and Oliveggood girls on the whole, but little chatterboxes. Howardva clever little boy whose great love is his politicalfminded pony, Oscar. Charlie-a little boy whose great love is his pair of kittens, Dianne and Sylvanne. As the scene opens, several of the characters are in the pasture in various attitudes of abandon. Others are seen approaching in the distance. Charlie-who is lying on his stomach gazing dreamily at an ant crawling up his hand. "Did you ever stop to consider that since an ant is an arthropod, and a lobster also, they are brother and sister?" Howardfwho is lying on this back gazing dreamily at the sky. "But on the contrary! Now to quote Pavlovgbut I don't think I shall. In the first place it would mean too much mental labor, and in the second place, too much physical energy." He continues to gaze, more dreamily if anything. just then Helen, who has been sitting quietly nearby, and who was just about to utter an obser' vation concerning English subjunctives, looks up and sees Stuart skipping up with a beam on his face fnot his eyej. She rises and sidles toward him, not unnoticed, however, by- Alba-who quickly nudges Annah, who up till now has been engaged in trying to outscold a bluefjay in a nearby tree. They rise and run to meet Stuart. Annah, Alba, and Helen-"Come, Stuart, don't you want to sit under the tree," with a tactful glance at his somewhat rosy features, "so you won't get a nasty burn?" Stuart-smiling, very impartially. "Thank you, girls. You know I was just down by the brook, thinking what a wonderful symphony of God this world is. Why, I-" Olive-who has been watching this performance, now flounces off to meet Ida, muttering to herself, "Those silly children, all standing under the tree, literally wearing out the grass. And then what will become of the ants? That's what I'd like to know." She joins arms with- Ida-who, for some reason, is walking very slowly and frequently looking back. The answer is not long in comingfit is Teddy. As he catches up with the girls, Ida blushes, looks down, and finally manages to say sweetly, "Hello, Teddy." Teddyfthrusts his jaw to an incredibly tough angle. But his eyes are gentle as he replies, 'LHello, kid. See you have some new shoes." Ida4happily. "Yes, aren't they beautiful? They're real patent leather." And she divides her beatific gaze between them and him. page one hundred flftyfthree ale at xilw mr rflrarr 19 X! W Chester, Dallas, and Garrett are seen approaching, marching three abreast. Since they have all long been considered natural leaders by the gang, and themselves, they avoid hard feelings by walking thus, when together. Teddy used to be one of them, but recently has displayed a ten' dency to wander in Ida's direction, due no doubt to its being summer, which, next to spring, is very nice, as everyone knows. Luther-shuffling along behind the utriumphal three." He is shuffling partly because he forgot to tie his shoelaces, and partly because he is occupied in making what he calls a motion sketch of the group ahead of him. When they stop he, by mistake, walks on into them, tearing his sketch. For a moment his lower lip juts out ominously, but is soon restored to its normal position as he reflects that such an experiment wouldn't have been salable anyway. Chester-"Well, kids, I guess we're all here. What shall we do today? I move that we go around the group and have each one suggest what he'd like to play. I suggest we play War and Peace. We'll take sides. Peace will kill off all of War's men, and will reign forever." Garrett-interrupts eagerly with, "Yes, then we could celebrate Peace's reign by all coming to life again and indulging in a brief devotional service, with a few highly interesting hymns." He rubs his hands in happy expectation. Teddy-L'Oh, that's sissy. Let's play Soldiers." And he begins to pace up and down so militantly that he causesi Annah and Olivepto giggle in unison, 'lOh, Teddy, you look just like Mussolini." Teddy-at this suibsides, since he does not admire Mussolini. So he turns to Ida inquiringly. Ida-pauses momentarily in rubbing an imaginary spot from her left shoe, to say, "Well, if you'd all like to, we could play house. I'd be the mother, Teddy'd be the father, and, let me see, Stuart could be the baby brother." Charlie-disgruntled because up till now he has always been chosen as the baby brother. "Bef ing very frank with you all, that's a girl's game. I move that we all produce a drama, a worthfwhile drama-flike Macbeth." He warms up to his subject. "Now, Annah, you could be Lady Macbeth, you scream well, Chester will be Banquo, Dallas can be the blasted heath, the three witches will be Ida, Alba, and Helen, Olive will do nicely for alarums and excursions-that will make a lot of noise, and"-with a deprecating coughf"I'll be Macbeth." At this announcement there are various expressions of disapproval. Ida bursts into tears, and Olive, who has been sitting with a satisfied smile on her face, chokes angrily, sensing a double meaning. Chester-speaking for the group. "No, Charlie, I don't think we want to play that. What do you say, Howard?" Howardmwho has reflectively been chewing grass, a habit acquired from Oscar, answers slowly, L'Well, there ought to be some game which would be fun, but I don't seem to have the energy to think of it right now." He adds apologetically, "Of course, we could always discuss Pavlovf' Annah-who is evidently anxious to return to the Macbeth theme, "Well, since 'Charlie is so keen on Macbeth, and since Stuart likes music so, perhaps we could compromise by rendering Beethoven's Ninth-the chorus, I mean. Of course, the direction would naturally fall to Stuart." There is immediate and noisy bickering among Garrett, who refers to "my many years of service in that capacity," Chester, who quotes his experience at the Boy Scout Camp "Happy Hours," and Teddy, who loudly states that directing a chorus is very similar to leading army mules to water. Luther, meanwhile, is declaiming into space that in Hve minutes, if they won't play his game, he is going to climb the tree and sulk, and then they'll be sorry! Alba-in an obvious effort to maintain peace, offers the mild suggestion that a brisk workfout in Latin declensions would be of advantage to everyone. She is downed, however, by- Dallas-who scornfully retorts that such a game-with Biology-is no fun, besides being uneconomic. He emphatically states, "I move that we set up a 'model cofoperative, and get in practice facing facts before the summer is over." page one hundred fifty-four 1039 Tiff TAPEK Olive- -"I agree with you, Dallas. I seem to remember an adage about the busy bee, or was it a wasp? Anyway, he was always busy. So I second the motion." Helen+"Heaven's no! That's much too dry. I suggest we all do some settingfup exercises." All--3'Oh, Helen, it's much too hot to exercise." Helen-dryly, with an inclusive glance around, "Well, some of us could certainly stand it." Annah--"Oh, kids, I know a lovely game. It's called gossip. Someone leaves the group and the rest all tell things they know about the person, and then he comes back and tries to guess who said them. It's really lots of fun--and educational, too." Charlie-3'Annah, just between you and I, that sounds like a fine game, but"-as the rest all reject the game, some scornfully, but the majority nervously-"I don't think this is quite the day for it." Stuart-in an effort to ease the tenseness of the moment, "Well, I propose that we all do just as we pleasefand I for one am going to practise the comet." He moves away to a secluded spot. And so, as the scene closes, Stuart is conducting a class in cornet playing. On one side of him sits Alba, who has long yearned to learn to play the cornet, and on the other side Annah, who is absently pulling the petals off a daisy. Garrett, whose offer of his services in an advisory capacity has been tactfully refused, has accompanied Chester to a bare spot of the pasture, where Chester intends to play his War and Peace game by himself. While waiting for Peace to reign, Garrett is mentally composing a few words of congratulation. Olive is sitting by herself, endeavoring to remember just how that adage was worded about the bee-or was it a wasp? Thinking examples may help her, she has sent Charlie forth to catch one of each. Howard, lackf ing the energy to think of anything better, is accompanying him, picking on the way choice bits of grass for Oscar, who will no doubt be tired when he returns from his interview with President Roosevelt. Teddy, by pure accident, has chosen a spot near Ida in which to plan out an imaginary parade ground, where he will be the general. Luther is fast wearing both himself and the grass out in walking around and around the tree, wondering whether to take the chance of obscurity by climbing the tree and sulking, or to remain on the ground and give in to the others--on exactly what count he is a trifle vague. Ida has placed her patent leather shoes under a tree in the shade, and is happily collecting twigs preparatory to playing house. Dallas, although he well knows he will not make his wages of management with only one customer, has set up a cofoperative store near Ida's house. Seeing that she is absorbed in her family, however, and seems in no mind to "cooperate," Dallas, after glancing guiltily around, tiptoes surreptitiously to a place in the long grass, sits down and, drawing a magazine from his pocket, begins to read. It is the Redbook. After which there can be hut one action . . .

CHARLES RICE GADAIRE page one hundred fiftyfxix 1030 THE Tflflfk URNINC the pages of college yearbooks one finds that the histories ft SN of graduating classes follow the same basic outline green Frosh l 0.99 5 gl-,A V lp, ' ' f Ll. sw JJ- ' 1 cl' .. .9 Q Hpseudofsophisticated Sophsf' "individualistic juniors," and "schof lastic Seniors." Thus the drama called "College Life" is exposed. It is well balanced, a life of study, athletics, and socials, it is full of friendships, it is happy and hopeful, serious and sad. Thus it sponsors intellectual growth and develops personality. It would seem, therefore, that all classes are fundamentally the same--and yet the Class of 1939 has played a unique part in the history of the American International College. Your entrance at the peak of our expansion offered every opportunity for great accomplishments, you saw these opportunities and have ably taken advantage of them. The organization and successful publication of the college newspaper, the establishment of an annual winter carnival, the expansion of our athletic pro' gram, the institution of Wright Hall, the expansion of our cultural program through extrafcurricular organization, and the successful organization of a Stu' dent Faculty Council are institutions to which you as a group or individually have very ably contributed. You are leaving, others are to take your place. Their history will be fundamentally like yours, but you can be proud of the fact that your class has been instrumental in the establishment of new traditions for the newer A. I. C. and that you leave an indelible landmark which will not be forgotten and the spirit of the Class of 1939 is to stay. You enter this unstable world with great advantages. You are not bound by old traditions which make many fearful to change. You have played an active part in a changing world and are well equipped to meet the restless, darf ing, creative spirit of a new age. page one hundred fftyfseven ale 75 R SORORI1-Y 19 39 li!! if ffl PL' R Thank You, Mrs. Parkhurst IN Scpteinher of 1938, a new dining hall was opened for dayfstudent use in Wriglit House.

' lQ7aJl Each year the Taper Staff has sought to better the material content of this book. This year it has altered the basic layout, enlarged the book itself, and added new and different items. Since its inception, the Taper has maintained one established policy toward advertising, it has attracted the better business establishments of Springfield. This year, the Taper Staff has been in a position to perpetuate this policy through the co operation of the contributing merchants. The Taper Staff, aware of the benefits bestowed by the advertisers, is appreciative, and thanks those who have made the maintenance of this policy possible. The attention of the graduates, undergraduates, and friends is called to these benefits, and the Taper Staff urges that their appreciation be shown through patronage. , " NIGHTIME IS PLAYTIME " Compliments M Improve your Golf llills eirfs Bakery Practice at the Fenway Golf Driving Range Brilliantly Illuminated at Night 361 Bay Street Springfield, Mass.
