KATE D. S. KENDALL
WILLIAM R. HOTIN
Mr. Hotin, whose yearly projects will be a long-remembered challenge
to all his students, has the arduous task of teaching the complexities
of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. His consistent efforts to make
scientists of us are appreciated by his braver classes, as are the high
standards he sets for us. He is advisor to the Senior High Science Club,
which he founded, and to Science Fairs, which he initiated. He has
developed his interest in applied as well as pure science by coaching
the Varsity Basketball team.
There are two outstanding factors in a "Kendall Classroom": the red
outmarks the blue, and the knowledge gained outweighs the grades.
Mrs. Kendall teaches English to Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and
Seniors, with great zest and love for the subject as well as for the stu-
dents. She is advisor to the Yearbook, in charge of speech and dra-
matics, chairman of the Senior High Prize Speaking, and advisor to
the Freshman Class.
ROBERT PETER LaFLAMME
Mr. LaFlamme, who speaks softly but never relaxes his vigor, teaches
Shop II, Shop III, Shop IV, and our new course, Mechanical Drawing.
He is very much impressed by the friendliness and cooperation which
he has found among both teachers and students at Conant. For the
future, he has high aims for the Industrial Arts program, and he has
set up a club called the Industrial Arts Association, the first of its kind
in New England. He hopes to add courses in sheet metal, electricity,
power mechanics, graphic arts and welding, thus achieving balance
BASIL B. MacLEOD
As Guidance Officer, Mr. MacLeod is a great help to both students
and teachers. With amiable perseverance, he has helped many of us
choose both subjects and vocations that we will be wise to follow. It
is generally agreed that he has what is called a "fabulous personality,"
this his favorite expression is "Okay," that he has more tests, and more
ways to give them, than any three other people, and that he never
gives us up, no matter how hopeless we seem.

ROBERT RUSSELL DEVOID
Mr. Devoid, the urbane and cheerful head of our French department,
greets students entering his classes with "Bon jour! " and says "Au
revoir! " as they leave French III. He teaches all French as well as
English 11 and 12, but he feels that students are more interested in
learning a foreign language than studying their native tongue, and he
finds the growth of the French classes f in size and aptitude J highly
exciting. He is advisor to the French Club, coach of the Senior Play,
a faithful member of faculty sports teams, and interested in a CPA
RUTH I. FITZGERALD
Miss Fitzgerald's busy schedule includes teaching English 7 and 8,
which she does with a systematic thoroughness that has become famous.
She has complete charge of Developmental Reading for Grades '7 and 8,
an activity which keeps the Junior High on its toes, and is in charge of
the Junior High Amos Fortune Prize Speaking Contest, held each spring
with many contenders. Miss Fitzgerald also spends some time sending
orders for the Teen-Age and Campus Book Clubs. She has a varied day
devoting herself to the many activities of Junior High boys and girls
and to their development.
ANNA E. GELINAS
Mrs. Gelinas teaches Math '7-A, '7-B. 7-C, and 8-C, is Junior High
sides over a room that is the pride of all Conant and the school's most
popular gathering place. For the past few years, she has worked only
with Junior High students, but as librarian, she has a highly competent
staff from the Senior High and is finding her new library contacts "a
gratifying challenge. "
KATHERINE G . HANCOCK
One of the hardest-working members of the faculty, Miss Hancock,
brings cheerfulness and patience to training the misguided fingers of
Conant typists. As head of the commercial department, she teaches
Personal Typing, Typing I and Il, Bookkeeping and Office Practice.
As manager of the financial records of all school activities, she is
kept busy by the treasurers of each class and organization. To her

ROBERT LESTER MALLAT, IR.
Mayor? Governor? PRESIDENT? Nothing seems beyond our political
leader, Mr. Mallat, whose classes reflect the same vitality he shows
in his successful campaigns in Keene. He teaches 8A and B Math, 8C
Social Studies, Civics for Grade 9, and Social Studies for '7A. Before
he leaves in the afternoon in that hot Borgward, he puts in time as ad-
visor for the Student Council, FTA, and as chairman of audio-visual
Mr Nlemala teaches Science to the diverse groups of 8A, 8B, and SC,
and seventh grade Social Studies. He is advisor to the Junior High Sci-
ence Club, a group that is super-charged with dynamism, and he has
this year been heading up a brisk Junior High Basketball Tournament.
His chief interest is science, but he says that he enjoys all his classes,
and that "if it is a learning situation, it is a good situation. "
RONALD W . RECORD
Mr. Record makes the difficult jump between eighth grade and senior
high school easier for his many students. His senior high classes, one
of which is Economic Geography, provide him with an interesting
change of pace. He is the least talkative member of the faculty, and
no one has ever been known to hear him as he approaches a classroom.
His courses include Social Studies 8A and Bg Civics 9A and C. and Eco-
nomic Geography. He is in charge of public relations in the senior high
RUSSELL E. YOUNG
Mr. Young teaches Industrial Arts and Driver Training, and fearlessly
faces the challenge posed by his industrial artists and his beginning dri-
vers, some of whose methods are eccentric. He is one of the advisors
to the ruggedly nonconformist Junior Class. Outside of school, his
favorite sports are hunting and fishing, in both of which he is expert.
