Duty is a strange thing. Hardly a day passes
that doesn't record some act of heroism or self-
sacrificeg men smilingly lay their lives on the
altar of duty.
One night more than a year ago the Sub-
marine S-51 went down off Block Island, with all
but three of her crew on board. The efforts to
raise her lasted several months. When at last the
divers penetrated the sunken hull, and had
worked their way through thersubmarine, they
found every officer and every man of the crew at
his post of duty. The wireless operator sat at his
instruments, the ear-phones still on his head.
Engine room, boiler room, battery room all told
the same story. Lifeless hands rested on valves
that it was their duty to close, or on levers that
it was their duty to move.
We also might think of the brave deed a
young man did during the civil war. This ma.n's
name was Lieutenant W. B. Cushing. Lieutenant
Cushing and his fellow men who went to help him
were going to undertake a. very serious task. The
commander of the Beet explained to them the
dangers of the undertaking. Lieutenant Cushing
said, "I am not afraid, I want to do something for
my country of which she may be proud." One
dark, foggy night Lieutenant Cushing and about
ten others made their way up the harbor to des-
troy the Albemarle, a large confederate ironclad.
He had a steam launch with a spar torpedo. The
'Confederates discovered them and poured volley
after volley into the laimch, but they kept on until
they reached the ironclad. Lieutenant Cushing
got the torpedo under the hull of the ship and
blew it up. The recoil shot the launch back-
wards, and the waves from the explosion filled the
launch full of water. All of the men were either
killed or drowned except Lieutenant Cushing. He
was an expert swimmer so he swam back to the
Federal fleet oh' the harbor. With a little steam
launch and sixty pounds of powder, he had
accomplished what the entire Federal fleet with
its heavy guns had attempted in vain.
These are only two of the many instances
that happen every day, where men do their duty
even though death is looking them in the face.
No matter how small, every man has a duty to
Each man has a master named duty,
Each man with his master must stay,
No matter how small- 4
Just stick-that is all.
And do your duty today.
P. S. T., '28.
Every year the cup is won, displayed for a
few days, put on the rack with the others and
promptly forgotten. All the vim and eagerness
in that line is put away with the cup, not to be
thought of again until the next track meet. Then
it is brought forth, used for a few days until an-
other cup is won, and-then again dismissed.
Those voices that can ring with enough enthu-
siasm at Greenfield Fair to make the judges
understand how they want that cup, are quiet
during all the scholastic sports except for a few
excited shouts from the side lines.
But .again we are improving upon old
methods. This year we are going to make that
cup mean more to us than just the best cheering
section for one day. It is going to mean the best
cheering section for the whole year. We are not
going to let those splendid voices be idle at the
games and sports hereafter. They are going to
announce to the world that we can cheer, that
what we do once we can continue to do, that all
teams have the support of the school, and that
we believe in them. When they are ahead we
will cheer them on, when on the losing side we
will cheer them on-no matter what they are
playing or against what odds, we will CHEER
them on to the end.
Let's make that cup mean every day cheering,
cheering silently perhaps-but neverthelem
cheering! H. J., ,28.
Variety is the spice of life, but honesty is life
itself. Abraham Lincoln acquired fame not
because he was brilliant or influential, but be-
cause he was honest. We should profit by the
knowledge of what such great men have gained.
Why should we not be ready to rise as high
in this age of progress and education? Every
particle of knowledge gleaned from our text
books should be put to some honest use or it
becomes hazy. By honest labor we should con-
quer the intricate facts to be found during our
education, and be ready to meet the world face
Abraham Lincoln, by his honest dealings, such
as giving back the overpay of six cents, earned
for himself the name of "Honest Abe." He
worked honestly and became successful as a-result.
By working honestly now, in not cheating our-
selves into thinking we dont need to study our
lessons, we are laying a firm and safe foundation
for our later lives. So by this work carefully
done, there should be no reason why later success
should fail to come to all of us. Packard, '30,
I Value of Athletics at Arms Academy
I wonder how many people, both young and
old, recognize the real value of athletics. There
are three very important reasons why every boy
or girl in high school should have some form of
physical training. .
First of all, exercise of the right kind is
essential to build up bodily strength and fitness,
something which even the most obstinate per on
must admit that he admires. Our school offers
various types of athletics, while the participants
are few in numbers, a state of affairs which ought
to be bettered if possible, and it is possible. Some

Had you lived in the neighborhood of Crittenden C,il'tlI1l1Il2L1' School
anytiine between 1915 and 1918 you could not have inissed seeing Birchie
and that little dark haired. dark-eyed girl together all of the tiine. But
as boys do change when they start high school he did, too, and we soon
found hiln amusing himself with various other young ladies. ln other
ways. too, he has changed, he was once very shy and bashful. VVe have
heard that he got homesick while spending a few hours in Griswoldville.
Now, however, he is far from that, he became brave enough to spend a
whole lnonth last sunnner at the C. M. T. C. at Devens.
He is very industrious, working afternoons in the Lamson Sz Good-
now Manufacturing Co. when he does not have to help fix the skating
rink or rake the baseball diamond. YVe are not sure as to the ways he
spends his evenings. we know that he likes to "listen in" on the radio.
bowl. and ride around in a Studebaker.
We hope he will inake good his intention to enter Northeastern
University this fall. When you get to Boston, Birchie, be sure to use
your brown eyes only to study.

HI say littleg but when time shall serve. there shall be smiles."
When you see a Ford drive up to school, stop, deliver a young lady
and then go on. you inay be sure Gladys is arriving. She is very fond of
cars, especially Fords. Perhaps it is because her father owns a garage or
because her chauffeur drives one. Although she always seemed to be a
very quiet person, we fear she is a bit hard to satisfy. She was born in
Shelburne Falls but did not grow up here. Thinking there might be
some better things in other places, she nioved way. After trying
several towns, she returned to settle down for good. Next year she plans
to go to Bliss Business College in North Adams. Then, when she has
finished there, we iinagine she'll come back and be general secretary for
the Bruffee Ford Sales Service Co.

And who never reininds us of others."
Catharine is the class baby in age, but not in size. VVe do not know
whether she entered Arms so young just to be with her brother. or
whether she realized the fame to which '27 would rise. In either case we
know she is glad of the choice that she made, For the first year or two
we didn't know a whole lot about Kitty. She always appeared to be
a very inodel young lady who never did anything out of place. However,
the more we were with her the better we knew her. First we heard
about a certain Ford. Then after Christmas there were stories of a
bouquet of roses. The Senior sleigh ride Cperhaps we'd better call it a
walk in her ease3 furnished the cliinax. Who knows what we may hear
next? Her future plans are to become a librarian. May we be per-
initted to suggest that you take up your work in VVest Haven,
Connecticut, or perhaps at Yale University, Catharine?

'Alt' all the yeah were playing holidays.
To tease would be as tedious :is to work."
During his first year at Arms John was very quiet, and only a few ot'
his cl:issm:Ltes knew him very well. However, one thing alone served to
living him into the view of 'the entire class. At. the Eastern States
Iflxposition he won :L prize. which, for one having had liut. one year ot'
agricultural training, was an almost: miraculous accomplishment.. The
class of 1927 immediately saw that, John was :L lIlt9llll9C'l' ot' whom they
might. well lie proud. and so-elected him president. Since that. time
he has held an important part in all school activities. Although these
honors lmrought: him many feminine admirers it, was not. until the end ot'
his Junior year that we noticed that he paid any particular attention to
them. Then we lmegan to realize that he was spending consideralmle time
on Pleasant, Street. of course, we knew John and lilgin were good
friends, Do not take from what..has been said that, we consider him :L
model young man. He is just like other normal lmoys, likes to cut. up
:ind also to tease. He seems to take a. special delight in the latter
occupation and spends much of his spare time practicing on his sister.
John intends to go to M. A. C.. where he will study forestry.

The little town of Heath, Massac-husettts, scarcely realized the gift,
it received on June 20. 1909, but as time went: on and Ray lmecalue :L
little older they really noticed her worth. When the little school up
there had imparted all its knowledge to her, she journeyed to Arms with
the rest ot' the noted class of '27. She has prepared for her eareer in
the commercial course tickling the typewriter keys and writing short-
hand signs. However, we notice she is glad when Friday comes, and we
have heard that there is someone in Heath who is very attruettive.
Rachel intends. to study in a businese college next. year. Probably the
Northampton Commercial College will have the pleasure ot' instructing
her and her inseparable friend, Isabel.

played well. She always liked athletics and recently took up long dis-

when the Seniors went on their sleighride. Dancing is another of her
delights. Whether here or in any other town. a. dance always attracts
her and particularly those in Ashfield. By the way she spends quite a
lmit. of time there. "Just visiting relatives." she says, hut we wonder. Al-
though lirought. up and educated ih Shellmurne Falls, she pI:ms to leave

'tAt whose sight all the other stars hide their diminished heads."
Howard was born in Shelburne Falls, July 14, 1910, and until a year
ago spent most of his time there. But all good things come to an end
sooner or later and this was no exception. We don't know whether the
idea of purchasing a car originated with meeting the lady, or whether
the idea of meeting the lady came as a result of his becoming the owner
of a high class roadster. We do know that after the purchase of that
vehicle instead of calling 10 Ashfield Street to communicate with the
gentleman under discussion. we called Shelburne-ah-oh-what's
the number, Howard? VVe don't deny that, as a Sheik, this august per-
son is a shining star, or at least the owner of a shining Star. Wie think

"None but himself can be his parallel."
When Goulie came into this world on May 21. 1909, he looked up
and said, "goo-goo ga wanna base ball glove, ook bla-bla." That is, we
heard he did, although we must confess that we are unable to 1'ender
any proof of this statement. If he didn't, he should have done so be-
cause he certainly has been following that line ever since. Wlhile in
Baker Grammar School, Elgin starred on their team. He came to Arms
and almost immediately took possession of first base to the exclusion of
all other would-be first sackers. This leader in the field of our national
sport has, to our knowledge. but one physical, mental, and moral failing.
This great handicap is his eanabalistic love for "hot dogs." You will
note that I did not say "a hot dog." but "hot dogs" and his idea of how
many should be eaten by a healthy young man is apt to run into ex-
tremely high immbers. When Gould attends a bazaar, lawn party. or
any functions of this nature. his parents are besieged for weeks with bills
for dozens upon dozens of hot weenies "with plenty of mustard." We
think that if any kind friend should wish to make this youth sublimely
happy he would present him with a "Lucky Dog" first baseman's mit.

If you have been to a high school dance during the last four years
surely you will remember a fellow who has come in late, Yes, that is
Ira and most always there has been a brown haired maiden with himg
you surely have noticed her. If you haven't been to any of the dances
or other events at Arms you can't. powibly have missed seeing a certain
Chevrolet being driven around at all hours of day or night, particularly
on the East Buckland road.
Well, Ira is one of the fellows who makes a living going to fairs and
judging cattle, in other words he belongs to the Agricultural Department
and the stock judging team. He has won many prizes in the past four
years and helped to obtain for the school several valuable silver loving
cups. I really don't know how the class could ever have survived with-
out him. Who would have done all the strenuous work in trimming for
our dances. like climbing out on the girders to fasten wires and balanc-
ing on the top of a shaky step-ladder to fasten streamers? Who would
have done all our errands or brought John to help in these. if it hadn't
been for Ira and his car? Next year he's going to stay at home and try
out all the things he's been learning about how to run a farm. If they
work as they are supposed to and he likes farming he's going to settle
down and be a 'treall' farmer. In closing we will leave as a prophecy a
short quotation from Longfellow. t'And by and by they shall marry."

It is not necessary to state the kind of a day it was when Leona
made her first appearance in this great big world. Vlilierever she goes,
sunshine goes with her. She is merry as the day is long, and they are
quite- long sometimes, aren't they. Lonie? 5Ve don't wonder a. certain
boy in the Senior class was captivated by her charming, ever-present
snnleg soiiie of the 1'est of us have been. but of course we knew it was
in vain. Leona blushes sometimes. particularly in French class. She
finds it just a bit embarassing when asked to give the future of the verb,
aller, to boldly say, "j'irai, tu iras, il im." It is queer, too, since she is so
familiar with that sound. She is planning to go to Normal School. and
then teach children. She may go to New York City or to Keene, N. H.,
but as the farming is not too good in New York we think probably she
will go to Keene.

Helen. is ai great, horsewoman. liver since she was a small child she
has had ponies and horses, and on bright spring afternoons when you
see her riding along at full speed, you know she is heading for some
quiet country road on which to practice 11ew feats. But. we must not
dwell on this long, for she has too many other accomplishments which
we must mention. She has tried nearly everything, prize-speaking,
dranuatics, glee elub, orchestra. class offices, and basket ball.
She has been active in all social events since she entered Arms.
Her sunny disposition and friendliness have won for her many friends
both in school and outside. As to any particular masculine friends we
can say very little. They change as often as the wind. Ohl no, we
donlt mean Helen is fickle, far from that, Init she ean't bear to be too
partial to any one of them. Next year she is going to Middlebury. After
that we are not sure whether she will teach, work for the Fred T. Ley
Company, or run a green house in Hawley.

'tSome think the world is made for fun and frolie, and so do I."
Rena was born in the quiet little town of Ashfield, but her residence
there was of short, duration, for she came to Buckland to live when only
about a year old. She attended the Buckland Graminar School for seven
years, and having obtained all the knowledge this school could offer, she
decided to enter Arms Academy. As means of conveyance to Arms,
Rena rode on the "'l'row's Buckland Hack," where she helped to pass
the time away by her desire to "cut up,'l but she also used to spend
some time studying to and from school. Perliaps this explains why she
is a Pro Merito student. Rena, otherwise known as "Pickles," acquired
this latter name from her tendency to over-eat. pickles at a sugar-eat at
Colrain which she attended on a sleigh ride. If you want to know any
more, just ask Rena and shr-'ll tell you her whole history including the
motorcycle ride that she had last, sununer while working at the "Way-
side Inn." As to R.ena's future, we ean't quite understand why she is
taking up teaching after the rumors we have heard of her experience in
disciplining a boys' class in Sunday School. Perhaps she'll improve after
a course at Bridgewater, l

"Quiet, gentle, good, wearing the rose of womanhoodf'
One sultry August day Harriette opened her brown eyes and gazed
upon the world. She was destined to a roving life, and moved around
a great deal until she finally arrived in Shelburne. Here she finished
grammar school and, apparently liking Shelburne, she decided to enter
the notable institution known as Arms Academy. At Arms she took
up domestic science. She has done very well in this course and we all
know she will make someone a good little wife. NVe wonder who will be
the lucky man, Harriette, She likes Chevrolet coaches, gray preferred,
drivers not excepted. For two years Harriette drove a horse and then
one spring morning she was seen driving a Ford sedan. In the last two
years the Ford has seen seine hard usage but it rims as well as ever.
Harriette is as yet undecided what she will do. She is thinking
some of getting a position in Greenwich, Conn. Only a short ride from
Yale University. Harriettel

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players5
And one man in his time Woos many hearts."
On March 4. 1909, the people of the little town of Shattuckville paid
little heed to the inauguration of William Howard Taft to the presidency
of the United States, for on that day in their midst was inaugurated into
this world one of the presidents of the class of 1927.
We are little concerned with his life until the fall of 1923 when the
present Senior Class entered Arms Academy. As treasurer, a member of
the social committee, marshall, and president, he has worked faithfully
for the welfare of '27. There is no sport in which he has not participated
and in each one he has succeeded well, so well, in fact, that this year
he has served as captain of two teams. His work in basket ball also
occasioned the famous ride in the ice wagon. As to Russcll's social life,
it has been extensive and varied. He fully believes in the saying that.
"Variety is the spice of lifel' and so has lots of spice in his. VVhat a
pity he did not keep that old Ford sedan as a souvenir of all his
"rendezvous!" At present his interests seem to be centered in the
Sophomore claw, but next year who knows where they may be.
As yet he has not decided whether to be a clerk in a grocery store,
go to Northeastern. or to spend his time hunting woodchucks,

"And ever since the conquest. have been other broken hearts."
Minnie thought this world was too dead and needed a little pep so
she came down to liven it up. I guess she did alright! No sooner did
she settle in a small town than it took the title of Colrain City. She
had heard that the Toonerville Trolley led many to knowledge, so one
day she boarded it and found that it led to Arms Academy. She
entered our school. and after a short time became well acquainted. She
was known as a good sport. If there was ever any work to be done,
Minnie was the one to do it. Clf there was any mischief to be done.
Minnie was usually at the bottom of it.3 She brought honor to the
present Senior class in her Sophomore year by winning the prize
speaking contest, and everyone will remember how well she took her
part as leading lady in UAS You Like It." She is also a worthy mem-
ber of the Pro Merito Society, and has won enough typing awards to
start a pawn shop. Minnie is rather undecided as to her future but
we're not. because we know what it means when one wears a flashy
diamond and is f'undecided" as to the future.

Class History of '27
In September 1923, our class had the
honor of enrolling as Freshmen at Arms
Academy. To say the least, we felt a bit
out of plaee or, to use the common expres-
sion, simply "green" However, in due
time we successfully passed through the
verdant stage and decided to abandon
time-worn custom and organize our class.
Accordingly we gathered together in the
Freshman Room, and elected as our class
officers the following: William Mahoney,
president, Minnie Reagy, vice-president,
Helen Legate, secretary, and Farley
Manning, treasurer. Helen Legate and
Farley llvlanning represented us as prize
speakers. Helen not only took first prize
at the local contest, but also, first prize at
the Inter-Scholastic Contest at Gardner.
The next fall we returned to Arms as
Sophomores, and, unlike most people of
that rank, we were noticeably dignified,
studious, and modest. For this year we
thought it best to have John Burnham for
president. Jarvis Hadley and Minnie
Reagey did us great honor by carrying
away both awards in the Prize
Speaking Contest. To end our year's
events we must not forget to mention the
Sophomore Social and, also, those finger
ornaments that were found on the hands
of some of the upper classmen.
As Juniors we chose Russell Purrington
to carry on our class affairs for us. The
big social event of our Junior year was the
Junior Prom, the best known in the history
of the school. It was an overwhelming
success, not only in pleasure but in decora-
tions. llaisy Abbott and William Mahoney
were our prize speakers.
Our Senior year has been the climax of
four years profitably and happily spent.
We have gradually put aside our childish
thoughts, enlarged our youthful ideals, and
have become accustomed to play the
role of dignified Seniors. Rus, our standby,
was again president. He, also, with Isabel
Halberg, represented us at prize speaking.
Although industriously occupied with the
prime duties of high school life, we have
not neglected the social phase of it for our
Senior Social was very fine.
During our four years at Arms our class
has been prominently represented in all

high school activities.
In leaving this school we are confident
that our chances to win success in life's
battles have been greatly increased by
reason of four years' profitable instruction
received from a sympathetic and eiiicient
faculty. E. T., '27.

first oflieers, and these ofiieers proved
themselves worthy of our ehoiee. They
were Calvin Call, Donald Purrington,

Emerson Kennedy and Calvin Call
represented us in "The Rivals" and
Margaret Smith and Emerson Kennedy
were our prize speakers. Some of our
memhers were among the group of "A"
students, so our work seemed well begun.
At the beginning of our Sophomore year
a few of our memhers had dropped from
the ranks, hut most of us were lined up
ready to he shining examples to the i11-

when we could exhibit, pretty elass rings.
Again we eleeted our oflieers and now

Early in the summer of 1806 a young
married couple built a cabin near Nolin
Creek, Kentucky. They were much like
other young people of their time, with
little money or education, yet it was they
who were the parents of one of the world's
greatest men, Abraham Lincoln. As every
one knows Lincoln was born on Feb. 12,
a desire which soon materialized. H
served but one term at the end of which he
returned home to continue his law practice.
It was a bitter disappointment in 1854
when he was defeated as candidate for
senator from Illinois by Stephen Douglas,
with whom he had carried on the famous
Lincoln - Douglas debates. A greater vic-
tory soon recompensed this defeat, however,
for in 1861, after a brilliant campaign,

Lincoln became president.

Sir W rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,
who led the nation through strife and
bloodshed. Truly he was a great man, a
man whose fame will increase with each
passing year. As it has been said, "he was
strong and tall like the trees he felled, the
kind broadness of the fields filled his heart,
silence and solitude were his boyhood
friends and when only a great man could
save the nation, God called Abraham
Lincoln and found him ready."
The above essay was written in a
forty-minute class period, with only a few
notes as a guide. The Lincoln medal, given
by the Illinois Watch Company of Spring-
field, Ohio, for the best essay, was awarded
to Miss Harriet Kemp.
This is a copy of the original, just as it
was written in class.
Little .lack Frost is an artist,
With brushes and colors bright
He travels over the woods and fields
And colors the leaves at night.
Here a splash of crimson
And there of yellow or brown
He paints a pretty picture
As he travels around the town.
Margaret Smith, '29.
Peanuts and Pennies
Lupino was a monkey which belonged to
Lupo, the Italian organ-grinder. Every
morning, even when the rain was pattering
gently on the sloping roof of his room, Lupo
would swing Lupino up on one shoulder
and sling the little hurdy-gurdy on the
other, and saunter out to earn his living by
making music and collecting pennies.
Lupino was dressed in a blue uniform,
with red braid on the front and on the
pockets, and he wore a red hat, carefully
mended. Lupo could not sew very well, it
is true, but when he discovered that the
pennies were dropping out through a hole
in the hat and that the children were pick-
ing them up and using them over again, he
sat right down with a little needle and a
big thread that he happened to have, and
stopped up the leak! And because he had
more thread than he needed, and some
extra patches of cloth, he put two more
pockets on the uniform, big pockets like
pouches that would hold a great many
The two had a very happy time together,
wandering about the city, and nobody in
the little house where they lived could
decide whether or not Lupo was fonder of
Lupino than Lupino was of Lupo!
One day, a warm, sunny day, when all
the children were rolling hoops in the park,
and when the windows were wide open
with the white curtains blowing, Lupo
picked up his monkey and said, "Come on.
We go to Mario's restaurant today."
This restaurant was the nicest place in
the city, Lupo thought. There he could
sit down with many friends and chatter
fast in Italian and eat a big bowl of the
good macaroni, while Lupino played in the
open court or dozed in the sun and dreamed
On this fine day Lupo was no sooner
inside the door of the restaurant than he
saw an old jolly friend whom he had left
behind him in Italy years before. They
greeted each other and slapped each other
on' the back, and then sat down to have
lunch, talking fast all the time. But first,
before they ate, Lupo tied the monkey to
the railing outside the door.
Lupino looked at them, very slyly out of
one eye and saw that they were not paying
much attention to him. Then he hopped
until he got as far out in the court as his
chain would let him go, sitting down on his
hind legs he pushed his cap far back on his
head and looked at some children who were
Their singing and hopping made him
want to dance, too, so he jumped up and
down, and a little bell that was fastened
to his uniform like a button tinkled and
tinkled. The children stopped playing at
once and gathered around him in a circle.
One of them, however, took one last big
hop, she had a bag of peanuts in her hand,
and she jumped so hard that one fell out
and rolled under Lupino's nose. He put
out his little claw, picked up the nut, and

howl most likely. It came to me suddenly
I had heard something about a dog before.
Let's see-dog-steaming, mustard, "hot
dog," I yelled. I tried to moisten my lips
with my tongue, but my tongue was dry.
Everything turned bottom-side up. I saw
the river coming up to meet me, its rushing
and roaring filling my ears. I tried to cry
out but no sound escaped from my lips.
When I awoke I was twenty thousand
leagues below the sea. "Rather fishy
business," I mumbled. I rubbed my hand
across my eyes. I put the other hand up
over my head. I instantly withdrew it with
a cry of pain. I felt myself being pushed
about, my head being crushed, and my nose
"Mebbe that'll teach yer to keep yer
hands off," said a shrill voice.
I sat up. All I could see was a candle
flickering nearby. As soon as my eyes
became accustomed to the light I could
distinguish a table, a chair, and an old man
with a long flowing beard. "Where am I,
who are you?" I asked.
"Whatcha think I am? I never answered
so many questions in my life. You are
inside of a whale, I'll answer that and no
more. But naow I wanna tell you some-
thing, don't you dare tickle this whale
ag-ain, cause if you do this candle will go
out and I've only one more match, and this
is the only candle and I've only a hot dog
for food. Then we will have ter suffer and
die and make food for the whale. Naow
keep still and let me sleep. This is the first
time I've spoken to a human being for
I fell back in a dead faint. When I
came to I stood up and walked back and
forth the entire length of the whale. My
watch was still running and I timed myself.
It took me exactly an hour to walk from
his tail to his jaw. Once I started to climb
up into his mouth and it made him sneeze
and I made a record run from his jaw to his
tail in just twenty minutes. My head
struck something hard and I lay there for
fully twenty minutes. I crawled slowly
back down to his jaws, taking care not to
get too near. As I neared his jaws a strong
light shone in. I was looking out at the
moon! My foot slipped, and in an instant
the whale sneezed again. The candle
flickered and went out. The whale
awoke. I heard the old man shouting at
me. His words came through his whiskers
like a breeze through the pine trees. I
heard him coming forward. I started to
run and he followed. My feet, slipped out
from under me, and I landed against the
table. The old man fell on top of me. His
fingers found my throat and he started to
choke out my life. "You made me lose my
match and the candle is out. Naow I'll
choke you and eat you! Now die!" he
With all the energy I could summon I
threw the old man off me. He landed in a
heap at my side. I heard an awful howl
and-I woke up. Yes, it was a wild
dream. If I hadn't thrown my dog, Jerry,
out of bed I might have told you how I got
out of the whale. I really don't know my-
self. W. T., '28,
When the snow lies deep and drifted
And the skies are dark and drear,
Then the chickadee flies around
Singing his song of bright good cheer.
His song sounds glad and happy
The reason, I think I know,
He's saying "thank you" for the crumbs
Which he finds scattered on the snow.
Sometimes when we go skiing
And we chance to take a fall,
It seems he laughs with a chicka-tee-hee
As he flies over the garden wall.
We are glad that he stays with us
For his happy songs of cheer
Help brighten the cold winter days
And make the spring seem near.

A Ramble in Songland
Seated one day at the organ, I thought
that Just a Song at Twilight would end A
Perfect Day. Outside the faint sound of
jingling bells came in and I knew that my
schoolmates were having a sleighride, how-
ever, I could not go with them for mother

an aged couple and as I drew nearer I
heard the old man say, "To me you're as

She replied, "Remember that silver
threads are among the gold." I walked
along a little farther and saw a sad looking
negro. I asked him what troubled him and
he answered, "Oh, my poor Nelly Gray,
they have taken her away and I'll never see
my darling any more." I offered him a few
words of Sympathy and started Marching
Near a little old log cabin in a lane I saw
a group of darkies. One said, "Let's go to
the golden wedding."
Another replied, "I shall wear my golden
slippers 'cause they look so neat." I was
beginning to be rather tired and did not
wish to walk any farther, when along came
some Horses. I am very fond of horses.
Soon I saw down in a cornfield some
darkies who were singing, "Carry Me Back

The Story The Old House Told
Our automobile passed slowly through
the rather commonplace Vermont village,
and, leaving it behind, came into the open
countryside. The valley through which
we were passing was narrow, and the
mountains, while not high, rose abruptly at
no great distance from the road.
It was autumn and a few of the trees
were tinged with red, making a most appro-
priate setting for the old gray house which
suddenly attracted our attention. The
house itself was worthy of description. It
was not far from the road, but nevertheless
it gave me the impression of space and
grandeur. The building reminded me of
the House of Seven Gables, so uneven was
its roof line.
And then suddenly the car stopped and
remained stopped until it seemed doubtful
if it would ever -start again. Those who
were wise in the ways of machinery vainly
attempted to locate trouble, but I gladly
availed myself of the opportunity to visit
the old house. It appeared uninhabited,
and, finding the front door hanging per-
ilously by one hinge, I cautiously opened it
It was a most interesting place. The
plan was much like that of several
deviating passageways. In the living room
was one article of furniture, an old sec-
retary. It was a beautiful piece of antique
furniture and I hastened to examine it, for
it called to mind various stories I had heard
of secret drawers and the like. However,
search as I would, I could find nothing un-
usual about it, until, quite accidentally, one
of the drawers fell out. There, in behind it,
I noticed a queer little handle. When I
pulled it out, a small aperture in the wall
was disclosed. In this sort of cupboard I
found a large envelope, yellow with age, but
still in good condition. There was no writ-
ing on the outside so I opened it to see what
it might contain. Several sheets of paper fell
out, written in a neat, old fashioned hand.
The ink was still bright and I read easily-

ing such a program was quite approved of
for this year.
The regular program of study was
carried out as far as possible. The first
session of school began at 4 o'clock and
ended at 6. The second session continued
from 7:00 to 8:15 o'clock.
At 8:15 every person anywhere around
was ushe1'ed to the gymnasium in Science
Hall, where a short program was given.
First, there were a few selections by the
Boys' Glee Club, then, a debate, resolved:
That the pri1na1'y system of election is pre-
ferable to election by caucus. Victory was
awarded by the audience to the afhrmative
side, which was made up of Priscilla
March, ,27 and Farley Manning, '27.
Although the negative side was defeated,
the speakers, Harriet Kemp, l28 and
Francis Field, '28, are deserving of much
praise for the splendid manner in which
each upheld his side of the question.
VVhen silence once more reigned supreme
the Girls' Glee Club rendered a few songs.
This was the conclusion of the students'
The members of Arms Academy feel very
grateful to the parents and friends who
attended school that evening.
Next year we hope that the number of
visitors will not only be doubled, but that
the idea of visiting school will be remem-
bered throughout the whole year.

"As You Like It"
A great step in the way of High School
dramatics was made when the Arms
Academy Dramatic Club, under the direc-
toin of Mrs. Christine Coleman Ostberg,
presented Shakespeare's greatest comedv,
"As You Like lt." The play was given on
the nights of November 29 and 30, a full
house being present for each performance.
The three leading characters of this play
were ably taken by thc following:
Orlando ,.,..,.........,.. Clarence Lilly
Rosalind .....,.. Minnie Reagey
Celia .............,.......... Helen Legate
The part of Orlando will ever be famous
for the undue amount of skill needed in
that fine art known as love. Lilly had all
the requisites necessary and certainly
utilized them to the full extent of his power.

was a fitting object for Lilly's love. Her
part was diflicult in that she had the part
of both a boy and a girl to play. How-
ever, Minnie did very well las she always
doesl and was a credit to all concerned.
Helen Legate as Celia, the cousin and
intimate of Rosalind, was a pretty picture
'mid the trees of the forest of Arden. The
part she played was difficult in that she was
the object of varying moods on the part of
Rosalind and Orlando. Nevertheless, her
sweet disposition coupled with her ability
as an act-ress,made her do her part cleverly.
The part of Oliver, the arch villain, was
cleverly played by Francis Trow. We
never knew that Francis could be so hard

For several years it has been the eustom
to organize a baseball team during the
autumn mouths. Nu important games are

This year three games were arraugefl
with Cllll.l'l0Ill0Iltf High Seliuul. These
games were played during the last few
weeks of September aml the result was
rather one-sirlefl, Altlmugli our team won
all three, the playing was hy no means per-
feeti and it will require mueh ll2l,l'll praetiee
to ohtain a team Capable of emupetiug with
those of the surruuntliugr sehools.
The seleetimi of players for the team ol'
the next season is the main Illll'I30Sl' ul' fall
hasehall. It also gives the boys a ehauee to
praetiee, and stimulates their interest in
the gzuue. There is always too short a time
iu the spring to form the lN'Sf1lJOSSll?ll'li'tl.lll,
hut with fall praetiee this is possible.
Swine of the buys who played this fall
were Harolrl Herzig, lloualtl PlIl'l'lllgLlUIl,

The 1927 Baseball Season
This season bids fair to be a very good
one and it will be more interesting because
a league has been formed. Mr. William
F. Pollard, Principal of Arms Academy,
was elected president and Mr. F. Earle
Vllilliams, Principal of Sanderson Academy,
was elected secretary - treasurer. The
teams in the League are as follows:
Charlemont High School
Conway High School
1 . T
Deerfield High School
Williamsburg High School
A schedule of games for the season has
been drawn up and each team is to play ten
games. The team having the highest per-
centage of games won at the end of the
season will receive a beautiful silver trophy
offered by the Draper Maynard Company.
Elgin Gould, John Hillman, Joseph
Tognarelli, Harold Herzig, Russell and
Donald Purrington are members of last
year's team who will probably play this
season. Several of last year's team were
graduated, but the prospects are good for
a successful season, for twenty-four or
twenty-five candidates have already res-
ponded to the first call.

This year the alumni editors desired to
increase the scope of their department and
to add to the interest of this publication
among the Arms graduates. In order to
accomplish this desire they sought the aid
of competent members of various classes
and they were exceedingly gratified with

humorist. He is a builder by trade, who,
in his spare time, has studied architecture,

were taken up. They are always eager to
obtain information concerning the former
members of this school and all such mate-

the time the Student is published but
throughout the year.
My dear Student:
Once again I am indebted to you for an
unexpected happiness. Some forty years
ago, when finding yourself short of copv,
you occasionally printed on your respected
pages some essay of mine which the
English teacher had on hand, I thought my
cup of happiness complete. I so well re-
member with what pride and delight I
thrilled to see myself in print. Perhaps,
Student, you do not realize what a service
you are rendering to your former associate
when you bring to mind the days of forty
years ago, and give her an excuse to touch
hands again with her former classmates.
When the request of your editor arrived
for a class story, I sent an S. O. S. to all
those I could reach, begging for facts. Each
and every one has responded. We are few
in number, for alas! the class which
graduated eleven members in 1889, soon
lost four of its number,.Lula Goodnow,
Florence Russell, Herbert Russell and Leo
Willis, whose memories we sadly recall,
with regret- at their early passing. One
other member, Grace King, moved to the
Pacific Coast where she married, but her
address is at present unknown to us.
promptly die when admitted to its pre-
cincts. However, when I last saw HM. O.,"
dignity sat upon his broad shoulders, un-
doubtedly laid there by the honors which
the city of Keene has conferred upon him,
by making him a member of the Council
County Commissoner, etc., etc. He is a
loyal son of Arms and recalls with grat-
itude his association with teachers and
The Home-makers, Bertha Carpenter

Read CMrs. Chatterton of Orangel, and
I protest that there is nothing of
interest to relate. Home making is a
most indefinite profession-its objective,
the happiness of the family- its reward,
the happiness that comes to oneself. Our
homes and our communities absorb our
lives. We count ourselves fortunate if little
that is spectacular or dramatic enters our
lives. Sadie was a successful teacher for
some years, and is now watching with joy
the development of a young son who is
preparing for Brown University. Bertha,
more lovely than when a girl, is the wife
of a dentist and the mother of a young-
lady daughter, in whom she takes great
pride. As for me, for thirty-four years I
have shone in the reflected light of my
husband-"the wife of the Head-master,
I do not include Lila Wendell tMrs.
Henningl among the Home-makers, for
although she has a husband and a home
in New York City, she has also a business
interest. For twenty-four years she held
a position with a printing company in New
York, and four years ago joined some of
her 'associates in a venture of their own,
which has flourished and is already a
substantial and prosperous business. In-

THE CLASS or 1894.
I think the Class of '95 has the distinc-
tion of being the smallest class to 'graduate
from Arms and, also, of being a hit-a-miss
class, as Phillip 'Merrill was the only one to
graduate who had been a member the whole
The class was formed in the last days of
the "special" class which many of the
entering students joined, deciding later on
their final class. Among the early members
were: "Alice Gould" Mitchel, who married

"Edith Gillett" Jones was a member of
the class but,did not graduate. She now

We have or will have three college grad-

I speak for the class in wishing we might
have a gathering of the Alumni of Arms
Academy inthe near future.
Think of it, thirty years ago we were
preparing to leave "Arms" and conquer the
world. Perhaps the dreams that we then
had have been lost but each one of us has
found a place that seemed to need filling.
We are doing the work that our hands find
to do and we do not believe our lives have
This anniversary is a sad one for us.
The first break in our ranks occurred in
January with the death of Baxter Herbert
Newell. "Bert" was a quiet, unassuming
member of our class but few of us would
be missed more. After graduating from
Arms he attended a business college in
Boston and then entered the hardware bus-
iness with his father, where he made a
name for himself among the trade. He is
survived by his wife, and a daughter who
is a student at Arms.
This class entered Arms in the fall of
1897 with a membership of nineteen. Of
these, ten continued school and were grad-
uated. And now, twenty-six years later, all
Philip R. Eldridge has always remained
in Shelburne Falls. After graduation he
entered Jenks' and Amstein's Shoe Store.
There he has stayed and is now a partner
in the firm. He married his classmate,
Cora M. Hallam. She attended North
Adams Normal School and taught in the
schools of Colrain and Buckland. At the
close of her teaching career, she was prin-
cipal of the Crittenden School. They live
in the Hallam house, which they have pur-
chased and remodeled into two modern
flats. They have one son, Howard R., who
is a member of the class of 1927. A
Charles Stewart Holbrook is at 14
Goulding St., Worcester, Mass. He
attended Bates College and Boston
University. At present, he is Employment
Manager of the Worcester Pressed Steel
Company. He married Alferetta Jaffrey
and they have one son, J. Adams, who is
ten years old.
Josephine Zrainaig is Mrs. Frank Ryan
and lives on Kerr Avenue, Adams, Mass.
She attended a business college after grad-
uation. She has a daughter, Helen, who is
the oldest child of any class-mate. She is
employed in Utica, N. Y. There is a son,
Clarence, who attends Adams High School.
Fred W. Macher lives at 50 Vermont St.,
Springfield, Mass. He is employed at the
United States Arsenal. He is married and
has two sons. One is in junior high and the
other is four years of age.
Leon F. Payne was graduated from
Brown University after leaving Arms. He
now lives at 1338 Walnut St., Edgewood,
Pa. He is Credit Manager of the Carnegie
Steel Co., Pittsburge, Pa. He is married
and has a son, Leon, Jr., who attends one

516311 The Arms Student
Greetings, class-mates of the Great Class
of 1910! A big rousing "altogether now!
Rah! Rah! Rah! 1910!" would so appro-
priately express my feelings! When I had
completed the compilation of the where-
abouts of the members of our-class I did
feel so proud and I know you will When you
have completed the reading of this account
of our class.
For four years I have been at home and
during that time have enjoyed meeting
almost all the members of our class. Now
thru the pages of this letter and by the
courtesy of the Arms Student, I shall en-
deavor to share with you all the pleasure
that has been mine.
My first summer home, a small group of
us succeeded in holding a reunion in the
form of a picnic at Pleasant Park. Altho'
we numbered only twelve, the reunion was
one long to be remembered Qespecially the
mustardj. VVhen the shades of twilight
began to fall we gathered about the glowing
embers of our fire. To the accompaniment
of the rippling waters of Clessons River,
the twittering evening calls of the birds,
and the crackling of the burning branches
of our fire, we relived our days at Arms and
our activities since we had parted. Letters
were read from absent members who thus
seemed present, not absent. Then came a
silence for a similar thought occupied us
all. In April, 1921, we experienced the first
loss in our class roll,that of our dear friend,
Ruth Griswold Eddy. Her winsomeness,
gentleness, goodness, 'and kindness can
never be forgotten. We, who knew her
can say sincerely that today we are hap-
pier and better because of the qualities of
her character so beautifully reflected into
our lives. With a tribute to her memory
our reunion was brought to a close.
At the time of our reunion we had no
word from Esther Ball Smith. Esther is
now Mrs. Edwin R. Smith and lives in
East Lynn, Mass. Her daughter, Marion,
attends junior high, her son, the grammar
Altho' Louise Bardwell Copeland's home
is so near Shelburne Falls, she was unable
to meet with us that summer. Louise's
home is on a most delightful farm in
Colrain. Beautiful apple orchards and a
fine herd of forty or more thoroughbred
Holsteins advertise the occupation of Mr.
Copeland. Louise has two children, Lloyd
and Margerv. Mrs. Lizzie Bardwell Hall,
also, lives here. Edith Cromack Sharron,
our valedictorian, lives in Spencer, Mass.
Chickens occupy the center of interest on
this farm so Edith told me last year. It
was my opportunity last Spring to congrat-
ulate Frank Williams who had been elected
to the School Board for the Town of
Shelburne. Frank is the proud father of
five children. Fred Davis, another member
of this Shelburne group, is married and
lives in Greenfield. He is a civil engineer.
Paul Atkins also works in Greenfield.
One day last year I was in Baker's
Pharmacy talking with Charles Canedy,
who is a valuable member of that drug
store's force, and who, by the way, has a
very active son, Sydney, and a little baby
daughter, when I noticed someone who
looked so very familiar standing in the
doorway. He was very tall and smiled in
a friendly way. Of course I recognized
height and manner as belonging only to
Sumner Dole. Sumner is now coach at the
State College, Storrs, Connecticut. I take
real pleasure in reading of the many vic-
tories of his teams. He and his wife are
proud of their little daughter who has three
brothers to coach her along life's highways.
Every summer during Chautauqua time
I see Marion Clark Peon who lives in
Heath where Mr. Peon is proprietor of the
General Store. Marion has one son.
Harvey Smith and Nema Tarver while
attending Arms commuted from Buckland.
A year ago I met Nema Tarver Watkins at
the S. F. Woman's Club Banquet which
was held at the Sweetheart Tea House.
Nema has two daughters, Nancy Lee and
Jean, and -they all live in Polk,
Pennsylvania, where her husband is a doc-
tor. Harvey Smith is located in Cleveland,
Ohio, at 1660 East 86th Street. Harvey is
superintendent of the chemical department
of the Glidden Paint Company. He has
one son. I
Harry Shaw also has a little son and a
daughter, Virginia. He is connected with
the construction company, Fred T. Ley Co.,
Boston, Mass. Jacob Shulda is bookkeeper
for the Frost Grain Co. of Shelburne Falls.
He has two sturdy sons. Vivian Shack is
doing clerical work for her father and The

Alfred does a great many things on the

entertaining at various gatherings, and so
on. Albin Johnson I see every summer. He
lives out on Long Island. His son, Stanley,

Three years ago Christmas I met Dr.
Haigis. Carleton lives with his family at
Haydonfield, N. J. In 1923 he received
his Doctor of Science degree from Clark.
We are all very proud of our classmate
and we are all very happy in his well
earned success. Carleton is chief physicist
of the Victor Talking Machine Co., in
Camden, N. J. I cannot help but insert
here how proud Prof. Holbrook would have
been! I am going to add an account of
Dr. Haigis' great achievement as written in
