Vile have endeavored to make this book a little bit less conservative than its predecessors. A Leatherette cover, informal snapshots. cuts of all our championship teams. a different arrangement of senior photographs are a few of a great many changes that we hope will be welcomed by our subscribers. XVe have endeavored to make this book truly representative of our class and our school. lt is by no means perfect. but we be- lieve that it points a way to something better. that it will spur other classes on to far excel our pioneer effort. To the Seniors this book will seem to keep always fresh in our minds those good old days spent at East Providence. Even now. as graduation day approaches and with it the cul- mination of the four years we have spent in good old E. P. H. S., we longingly and some- what sorrowfully look back over this long period. Vvle now realize the happiness and good times We have had. and how hard the teachers have worked to increase our knowledge. As we are about to depart, our hearts are filled with sorrow at the thought of leaving E. P.. and we begin to feel kindly toward those Latin sight translations. and problems in physics and geometry. We believe we have made a record in our studies and on the athletic field worthy to be proud of, and we leave this record as a model for the next year's class.

"Jerry" is one of the few who have attained honors in the intellectual held as well as on the athletic field. As captain of our basketball team last year he brought honor to himself and to the school. He plans to continue his studies at Brown Univer- sity where we are sure success awaits him. PRESCOTT HOWARD ALLEN "Vi7hcn l became a man. I put away childish things." This may well apply to "Pret." For three years we had laughed at Pret's antics and been entertained by the many toys with which he amused himself in class before the teachers contqscared them, Btit to our amazement last September, he became a man and put away all childish things. He never has to be admonished now, and consequently his marks have risen appreciably. though they have never been unnecessarily low. He intends to follow his natural ability and become a chemical engineer. and we know he will succeed. HOPE GORTON ANTHONY Baseball fl. 2. U.

Honorable classmates. worthy fellow students gentle readers. and friends: I take great pleasure in introducing to you Junior. the star debater and champion public-speaker of 1927. I shall attempt to prove this by six reasons. First he is fluent-fwho gets a chance to talk when he is around? Second. he is per- suasive-behold the number of advertisers from Riverside rep- resented: third. he is active-ask any member of the CRIMSON board about its meetings: fourth. he is weightv-he knows where the freight elevators run: hfth. he is frank and open- he abhors a clam: lastly. he is experienced-look at his honors in dramatics. prizefspealsing. and debating Bates College will receive him in the fall, I thank you. THE CRIMSON FAITH PRENTISS Boutwn Vylho could help liking Faith, who is more fond of having a good time than of doing her lessons? NVe have missed her du.ing her frequent visits to the South where, we learned. there are beautiful lakes with overhanging trees and charming Span- iards. Faith has always been popular during the time she has spent with us for she has a charming manner with which she makes many friends. She intends to enter college next fall, where, we are sure. she will foster these same charming qualities. MYRA EVELYN BRADLEY Our troubles vanish like bubbles when we come in.o :ontact with lVlyra's sunny disposition, Myra has always been a Une student and is liked by her teachers as well as her classmates. She is planning to enter Framingham Normal School ne:-'t September and we are sure of success in whatever career she has planned. RICHARD PIIERSON BREADEN Second Honors R. l.

Dick has always been more or less bashful. but he certainly erased all traces of this during the debating season and proved to be one of the most dependable and forceful of speakers on the team. During his spare periods he has helped to liven tip our orchestra. ln addi- tion to these activities he has brought himself renown in schole astic achievements, He intends to enter Brown in the fall and we hope he will gain as much lanie and honor lor himself at college as he has here.

"Betty" is. as you see. one of the most popular members of our class. She can dance. save lives. play baseball sing, give cheers. plav tennis. take care of socials. and whisper. Betty is not one of our notorious grinds but she is one of our notorious flirts, Many times has she lured some unsuspecting boy into conversation which caused the victim to remain after school. But Betty seldom gets caught. and with her. where whispering fails. notes travel instead. For all her frivolities we like her just the same and we wish her the best luck in whatever she attempts this fall.

"Cassy" seems to have been able to discover what Physics and Mathematics are all about, an accomplishment of which few of us can boast. I-le is one of the few members of the class who have contributed to past CRIMSONS, a three-act play of his "Sabinus Among the Venelli" having appeared in the '25 CRIMSON. ELENA FRANCES CHECCA Senior Play 143 Elena. the girl with the snapping dark eyes, knows mor: about French and Spanish than all the rest of us put together. She belongs to that certain crowd whose giggles. besides keeping teachers busy, are almost invariably h:ard during study periods. XVith her small stature. Elena makes a mo:t attraecive orphan.

She is exceedingly fond of sports. She has made herself very useful as a baseball player. and has helped to make our team what it is at present. She was also an active member ol' the Ciirl Reserves, Let us not forget that Ruth was also a participant of the whispering and giggling group. Tl-lE CRIMSON NETTIE FIELD Coxmtii Orchestra 13, -ll Nettie is the girl with the golden curls, who has added the rrielodious tunes of her violin to our orchestra for two wears.

Paulinus is seldom seen without her insep- arable trio of companions Hattief 'Bob' and Hazel," Heres wishing her good luck as ' somebody! stenog' THE CRIMSON ISABELLE REGINA DONNELLY Isabelle, the girl who trips merrily along smiling at this one or greeting another with a few pleasant words, has been with us for only two years. During that time we have grown to like her very much. Isabelle never lets anything worry her: in fact. we are apt to believe she does not know what that word means. Although good times are much more attractive she has been a fairly good student. She is passionately fond of dogs. cats. horses and even bears. She told us once that she wanted a bear cub for graduation but had to be satisfied with a police dog. After graduation our merry-hearted classmate intends to go to the School of Design to study interior decorating. l,URA LOUISE DYE When some of us count the number of black marks for tardiness and absence after our names in the teachers register. we envy I.ura. Four years without a single tardiness or absence is some recordf She has accomplished the remarkable feat of get- ting her lessons done and enjoying herself at the same time. Vw'here we see Lura we also see her inseparable companion. Emma. She has been attending Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School since completing her course in January. HATTIE ISABELLE EDDY Hattie has been greatly missed since her departure in Ifebru- ary. Although she was usually very quiet she was found oc- casionally in the midst of a group of giggling girls. She has left no information regarding her future. but we feel confident that she will succeed in whatever she undertalxes. THE CRIMSON QLORQSE BLISS UVIERSON XX'lio does DOI admire his sunny sinile and winning person- alitv? George is one of our Math sharlts. XVe are often ama7ed at his lteen perception in the solution of intricate problems. He intends to go to Brown University in the fall, where we are sure success awaits him. DOLORES AUDREY ENOS R I.

Gladys appears to be very serene in manner. However, she enjoys a good time as thoroughly as anyone in our class. RUTH CARPENTER GOP? Ruth has tripped merrily down our corridors for four years. lvlithe and gay of heart, and always on the alert for fun, XVho of us will ever forget her infectious giggle with which she casts such a charm on the teachers? She is popular. and especially among some of the undergraduates. Although there is always something doing where Ruth is, she can he serious, and her name has graced the honor roll. MARY CATHERINE GOGCJIN Here is one of the many quiet members of the class. Mary seems to Gnd more pleasure in watching the enjoyment of others than in sharing it with them. ln spite ol' her shyness she has won many friends among her class-mates. THE CRIMSON XYALLACE GONSALYLS Senior Plav 141 Wallace is one of the industrious group that arrives on the Rehoboth bus cverv morning. His behaviour is usuallv exem- plarv but his frequent wittv remarks enliven mans' an otherwise drearv recitation.

He and his fellow acrobat, Pret Allen, have done well during the last four years in cheering the rest of the class. if not the teachers, through many otherwise dull hours. GLADYS GLORIA COULD O. A.

HlEl.l7N IIIAHY GRAY The Senior class as a whole is divided into three parts, one of which includes the most active membersfthe athletes and honor students: the second. those to whom fun and studies are ol' equal importance, and the third. those whose interests center in scholastic pursuits. Ol this last group. llelen has been a member. very shy and retiring, whose occasional outbursts are interesting indeed. She hasn't revealed her plans but great deeds are not performed by the boasters, and whatever her choice of vocation may be. we know the laurel ol success will crown her brow.

With such pleasing manners we feel certain that she will be a charming librarian. MARGARET CATHERINE HOLMES Margaret is the personification of merriment. She is almost always laughing and her enthusiasm for mischief reaches its cli- max in a study period. She sees a joke in nearly everything and makes all those around her merry, too. Her sunny hair tells of her sunny disposition. Every morning about eight- Hfteen if you were to go to the cloakroom you would find Miss Baker hurrying her up the stairs. Next fall Margaret intends to enter Kingston. ATHELINA SALVINA HUBBARD This little miss surprises us by the aggressive manner in which she attacks her recilations. She is determined to receive good marks and devotes all her time in school to study. Her line voice has been one of the mainstays ol' the alto part in the Cllee Club.

As she always studies her lessons and listens to the teacher we are sure that she has gained a great deal of help and information from the commercial course during her four years within these portals. Vlith her quiet attractive manners there is no doubt but that she will become well-liked in whatever :he urideitakes. THE CRIMSON ARTHUR ERNEST LOFQUYST Football l-ll. "Art" is a quiet fellow in school but a regular tornado on the football field. Economics is the one subject that Art really enjoys. His enjoyment is not found only in the law of supply and demand. however, for he sends his smiles to some member of the fair sex. She may be next to him. or away over on the other side of the room, but wherever she is the smile goes and is probably happily received. We hope his smiles and foot- ball will be as readily received at college as they are here. XVALTER ALLEN LUCAS School Play r-ll: Electrician. Senior Play.

From the land of zealous clamsters, From the village of East Providence. Ye who honor town traditions, Ye who follow Youth's successes, Listen to the wondrous history Of the class of twenty-seven: Down upon the sacred portals Of the schoolhouse, of the high school, Fell we who lived and did not know it Till we graced those learned benches, Till we entered in the sporting Of the gleeful upper-classmen. Wondrous days of fun and frolic- Then retribution, swift and awful! Passed the winter: came the summer, From that seat of mirth and sorrow We emerged with hearts so joyful. But alas, how swift the days were! How they fled in quick succession! Lagging footsteps, minds so empty Wended towards the wee red schoolhouse There they deemed us Sophs so brainy, The superiors of the Freshmen. How we bridled, how we struttedl With what pride our name We utteredf Soon a notice of a meeting Wrote we on the class-room blackboards. To the hall we then went filing, Chose a head from 'mongst our numbers. Chose Hilt Vaughn our mighty chieftain. Came a party: came more honors In the realm of sports and socials To our room-mates, to our classmates. Rapidly our books we skimmed through: Gained much ground in lore and football Came a robin. Sang he to us, Wake, ye sluggardsl Look and wonder At the glorious bits of springtime I have brought from sunny southlandsln Wake we did and studied harder: THE CRIMSON Wept into our biggest hankies For the teary parting Seniors: Wiped our eyes and journeyed northwards For a breath of coolish breezes. W'hen the trees their leaves were bare of. And the Autumn found us studying. Came a cry for tardy money For a blow-out to the Seniors. YX'e scraped our pockets. broke our fathers Swaniped the treasury with our gleanings. To the caterer gaily tripped we. Offered him our jack so hard-earned. This he took and gave a party. Overwhelmed our class with favor. Popular indeed were .Iuniorsf At last we had another meeting. Elected Mulvey class presider- He who steered our class so lively. Through the tide of Senior year. Earned our athletes some new garlands For the hall. for their own temples. Came the robin. Back so early? Shied at him a book so weighty. Still the days passed-all too quickly. Oh how near the end of school daysf One more year and -- Back we come with expectation Joy and pain upon our faces. Realized how close the goal was. Bent our backs to toil for honor. Gave a banquet to our victors: Gave a play-it was successful. Time fled. lost in that deep cavern Of Days Past But Not Forgotten. Honors lay upon the foreheads Of fifteen from out our numbers. A splash we made-gave a reception To our parents. to the Juniors. Then our school-life culminated In the striking panorama Of ninety-one receiving parchments. Draw the curtain.

"What nerve!" "Oh, she's his wife: she's got more right to wink at him than Dot Rodman over there. especially when she's only been married to that Bank President for three months." I wasnt very interested in what our dear mayor was saying, so I let my glance wander to the people assembled there. So Ellen Oldham had returned from Europe. and Samuel Young. the successful rnis- sionary who had converted so many heathens, had returned in time to be present. Henry John- son, the principal of a girls' inishing school in China. was talking over matters with Boonie Anthony, our present athletic director at E. P. Charlotte Kirk was there, looking as slick as a peacock in a rig which she must have bought at Leona Segoo1's exclusive shop. Ruth Collins was talking fluently in "Espanola" with a handsome Spaniard who, as I learned later. was the Spanish ambassador and husband of Marjorie Harrison. Paulinus Donahue, the opera singer who has so recently risen to fame. was feeding lump sugar to Isabel Donnelly's two-by-four trick pekinese, whom she always carries around with her. At this point Fred ceased speaking, and the former Doris Jenks was announced. She gave us a thrilling account of her tour through Africa and how her present husband had rescued her from a tragic death. It was so pathetic that Frances Merewether. the most taste- fully dressed Woman of the 400, wept all through it. CSO did IJ 44 THE CRIMSON After countless people dried their tears, Junior announced another speaker, Jimmie Roe, editor of The Riverside Mercury, on whose staff is Walter Lucas, agricultural expert. His speaking was interrupted by a heart-rending squeal from the other part of the room. It was only Emma Kessler. however: Fred Sullaway, judge of probate court, had tickled her, fSome people never seem to grow up,l James nnished speaking, and Curtis Cushman, principal of the Junior High, gave us a short speech. At last the speechmaking was over and we were free to gossip and talk over old times. Just then I saw Lura Dye. who gives free concerts for the needy. She was raving to Jennie Jarek about a new violin protege she'd just found. I listened politely for a moment, and then spying Dolores Enos, Dean of Pembroke, speaking with a very distinguished looking woman, I hastened to speak with her. I recognized the other woman to be one whose pictures I had so often seen in European Society News. formerly Betty Carpenter. There were Wallace Gonsalves and his dear little bride from California, and nearby Nettie Comrie, Elsie Smith and Elena Checca, who are nurses, were chatting with Hattie Eddy about different East Providence-ites: V "Rene Burmeister is advertising agent of the Country Gentleman." "Athelina Hubbard's conducting a music school." "Seen the new drug store up at Rumford, Goodwin U Goodwin-Ernie and Chick? Charlotte Taubert runs the beauty goods counter.

Reverend Vaughn's vocabulary had increased to an enormous extent since his high school days. Over in a secluded corner. Myra Bradley, dietitian at Pembroke, was engaged in earnest conversation with Dick Breaden. who teaches Greek over at Brown. Art Lofquist. the Florida orange producer. was shaking with the peculiar laugh of his with Anna Goodwin, a French teacher, who has never outgrown her ancient giggle. Several people whom I wanted to see were absent from the banquet, It was rumored that Austin Merewether couldn't come because his movie-star wife wouldnt trust him alone on the train. Bertram Smith couldn't leave his ranch and little gold mine out west where he was comfortably settled with his small family. Faith Bourne and her husband were busily engaged in their extensive automobile business down South, and Walter Monahan and Walter Casartello, wouldfbe-famous detective, had been suddenly called away to India in search of some missing "jools," fThe same old story.j Three of our prominent athletes, Bill Rice, recently elected "Emperor of Baseballnz Frank Reilly, and Irv.

PM was telling Eugene Marsden. the compiler of a new dictionary, how low the standards of all the classes are up there compared with those of the class of 'Z7. Soon Junior Blackwell. who had been rushing wildly around as usual. jumped up on a platform and announced that there would be dancing in the ball room, into which we all thronged and were soon in a whirl of excitement. 46 TI-IE CRIMSON School Activities Rhode lsland Honor Society The most important assembly of the spring term, to the Seniors at least, is the one in which the elections to the Rhode lsland Honor Society are made known and the solid gold pins and certincates of membership are presented, There was no less excitement and anticipa- tion this year as to those who were to be publicly honored for their high scholastic standing, school spirit and character: for all of these requirements for admission to membership are care- fully considered in regard to each candidate. At thisiannual Honors Day we are always privileged to hear an inspiring talk by some official of the Rhode lsland Honor Society or some one of importance in educational circles. This year we were especially fortunate in having as our speaker Prof. Kenneth O. Mason. Dean of Ereshmen at Brown University, who spoke on the "Relatfon between High School and Higher Education." We wish it were possible to give in toto the practical and inspiring address of Dean Mason with its many personal and humorous illustrations but must content ourselves with a brief resume. Due recognition was paid to the scholastic achievements of the honor students, for 2. display of which so little opportunity is given in school life. Dramatlcs, athletics, musical clubs, debates and other extra-curricular activities, all worthwhile in themselves and all con- tributing to a real education, are carried on with a great deal of publicity and those who par- ticipate in them are lauded and applauded, While those who expend their efforts on intellectual and scholastic pursuits are not honored so often. Then Dean Mason discussed the purpose of higher education. He emphasized the fact that college was not for every high school graduate, that it did not confer social prestige upon its graduates. that it did not pave the way to the most remunerative positions, and that it required certain emotional and personal as well as intellectual qualifications in its students. College is a limited and close community demanding of its members a strongly co-operative spirit with which to meet the keen competition in all activities. There is little sympathy shown to those who cannot make good. The teachers and the college will try to help educate the students but the real responsibility lies with the students themselves. Education is not merely the acquisition of a fund of information, of miscellaneous facts and data which may be found in any of the numerous encyclopedias and reference books on sale everywhere. lt is rather the ability to understand what you study, and especially the ability to understand your fellow men and fellow women. lt develops the divine quality of tact, co-operation, and getting along with other people. The extra-curricular activities teach these qualities while the courses pursued in college supply the information. A student leaving high school should consider carefully and decide what he really wants to do, then he should proceed as directly as he can to that goal. College is expensive and it is not right to select that type of education and waste both time and money if results will not be satisfactory. There are other lines of education as useful and as remunerative. Having selected his future course the student should learn both books and human nature, make use of his information, and get along with his fellowfmen. A good education helps somebody else: it is above all, an ability to achieve co-operation. Preceding Dean Mason's address the solid gold pins and certificates of election to the R. l. Honor Society were presented to the new members by Mrs. Edgar S. Ray, president of our Parent-Teacher Association. The newly elected members are: Richard Pierson Breaden, '27 Ernest Henry Johnson, Jr., '27 Dolores Audrey Enos, '27 Charlotte Eliza Kirk, '27 Gladys Lavinia Frebe, '27 Etta lrene Herold, '27 Meyer l.evine.

The Annual Play The annual play was a howling success: It went over big, we are glad to confess: But the howl of all howls was emitted from Jean When the Squirrel's rough face at the window was seen. Russell Blake. as young Dick. kept us all in suspense: Xyhen he bravely risked capture our dismay was intense: He carried the plot till we feared he was caught. But we found his intentions were not what we thought. Dominie. his old pal. made a fine Dr. Blair: He was pious and kind. and he just couldn't swear: His ways with the ladies were certainly fine. But he seemed to lack confidence in this new line. Jean, Richard's sweetheart, was certainly sweet. As lovely a lady as one could e'er meet: Her affection for Dick amazed till we found That she knew it was he all the time, quite profoundf Judge Logan was sober, as judges should bc: Dominie seemed awed by the discovery That Stivers was coming. was hot on their track: He wanted to go. but the dough kept him back. Dr. Chilton. the villian, was certainly bad. XVhen he tried to rob Jean it seemed very sad. He was finally baffled as all villians should be But Dick quite forgave him and let him go free. The two southern negroes were very amusing. Though why they should quarrel was sadly confusing. They quarreled and argued from morning till night And when through with their quarrels they started to fight. Miss Alicia was quite a refined dear old lady. Dr. Blair entertained her: they seemed rather shady- I mean those remarks that she didn't quite get. But why should we worry when she didn't fret. Gordon and Stivers were certainly great: Neither one got his man it is sad to relate. Though Gordon gave Squirrel a terrible scare. He carried his suitcase which wasn't quite fair. 48 THE CRIMSON MUSICAL NOTES Girls' Glee Club "Harkl the sound of joyous voices!" These words float through the corridors of the school the Hrst period every Monday morning.

We defended the negative side of the question, "Resolved: That the United States should recognize the present Soviet Covernment of Russia." Our team, made up of Breaden, Paine, Blackwell and Johnson. alternate, won unanimously. A week later the team journeyed to Vifoonsocket and vanquished the Woonsocket advocates of recognition. The debaters thatqnight were Cravlin, McDonald, Johnson and Breaden, alternate. N The next debate was with Hope at our hall. To the audience and the debaters this was the most interesting debate of the season. There was much rejoicing when it was announced that Breaden, Paine, Blackwell ancl Johnson, alternate, hadiwon for East Providence. We still defended the negative on the Russian question. The same team that defeated Hope defeated West Warwick at West Warwick on March 23, This was the final debate on Russia, Again we defended the negative. After this debate three weeks were allowed for preparation on the new question, "Resolved: That the United States should grant immediate independence to the Philippines." On April 19 the new series opened with Central Ealls at East Providence. Central Ealls argued for the affirmative and we the negative. Johnson, Blackwell, Paine and Breaden, alter- nate, won the debate for East Providence. East Providence was now called upon to shift allegiance and support the Eilipinos. One more victory was needed to clinch the championship, but our efforts in behalf of the "little brown brother" did not gain us the victory over Commercial in a debate held at the Auditorium of the Rhode Island College of Education, May 4th. Johnson, Breaden, Paine and McDonald, alternate, made the team, This was the first and only defeat of the season. The defeat only seemed to spur the team on. A victory in the last debate was necessary to a winning of the championship: a defeat meant merely a tie for first place. Warwick was the guest of East Providence in the final debate. The band made its debut and probably inspired the boys. At any rate the debate was a good one. East Providence won and celebrated another championship. ln this debate we advocated "immediate independence" again. The same team that debated Central Ealls debated Warwick.

L. lVlARSDliN THE CRIMSON 5l Girl Reserves One of the most active groups in the Providence Council of Girl Reserves is our own Hi-Tri. With stated meetings at the Y. W. C. A, on the first and third Thursdays of the month and frequent meetings between times in Room 10, and still more frequent group dis- cussions in the corridors, there is no doubt that the plans and opinions of the members are well aired and discussed. The interests of the Reserves are placed in the home. school. health. recreation. and service and the program of the year's activities includes all of these. Classes in aesthetic dancing and apparatus work have been organized. tests taken in swimming and diving. and a party given the children at the R. I. S. P. C. C. Home on Doyle Avenue, with gifts. ice cream and cake for everybody. In January the girls had full charge of the program at the meeting of the Parent-Teacher Association. In their white middy suits with blue ties they made a most attractive appearance. particularly in the candle-light ceremonial. Eight girls were initiated by Miss Anne XVilliams. Girl Reserve Secretary of Providence Council. in a public ceremony. A short 'sketch was pre- sented under the direction of Miss Baker, one of the advisers. and a piano solo was given by Nellie Fuhrer. At the tea which followed, Miss Wolf and Miss Baker poured and sandwiches were served by the girls. One of the chief delights of the Girl Reserves is to attend Camp Maqua during the summer, and the group at East Providence hopes to make it possible for at least two girls to have :his good fortune at this summer's session. lt has attempted in various ways to raise money for this purpose. In March a most successful dance and bridge was held in Roger XVilliams Grange Hall under the chaperonage of the advisers and some of the mothers. In April our girls had a table at the sale in the Y. W. C. A. which netted an additional sum. As this article goes to press Miss Baker is busily coaching a play "Breezy Point" which will be produced early in June. The officers of this active organization are Helen Hall. '28, President: Ruth Hascall, '28, Vice-President: Doris Williams, '29. Secretary: Mary Hudson. '28, Treasurer. and Ruth Landgraf, '28, Gladys Padelford. '28, Barbara Bridgford. '28, Pearl Armstrong. '28, chairmen, respectively, of the program, social, conference and membership committees. The advisers are members of the faculty, Miss Waddington. Miss XVolf. Miss Baker. Miss Hartford. and Miss Freethey. Lecture on lndia The school enjoyed a very interesting and unusual talk on India given by Mr. Dahlwani of Bombay who was accompanied by his wife and who described the dress and customs of the different castes of that country. The most interesting features of his talk included the processes of making turbans, man's only headdress in India. This can be accomplished in about three minutes with nine yards of gay-colored cloth and various twistings and wrappings about the head. Mrs. Dahlwani described and illustrated how the women of that country prepare themselves for the most auspicious occasions in about five minutes. Their dress, which consists of twelve yards of beautiful cloth in one long piece, is draped in the most clever fashion about the person. Their methods of eating were also described and illustrated. They possess no knives, forks or spoons which makes it necessary for them to eat with their fingers, thus reducing dish washing Wages are very low there, but the cost of living is unbelievably inexpensive, for a house may be rented for the sum of nfteen cents a month and a dozen bananas may be purchased for three cents. However, the poorer classes possess no such luxuries as we. for they have no electric lights, gas or other appliances which are considered necessities by us. After extending greetings to us in three different dialects Mr. Dahlwani explained briefly the scale and character of the native music and sang several songs of different types while accompanying himself, or rather marking time and rhythm for himself, on some native instru- ment. . 52 THE CRIMSON The Library Auxiliary The Library Auxiliary, which has been in existence for a year, was formally organized on the 26th of March of this year, when the officers were elected. These officers are Eleanor Bearce, president: Helen Mulvey. secretary: and Ruth Breaden, treasurer, with Miss Hill, the librarian, as director. The other members of this organization are Caroline Bowen, Gladys Gould, Cecile Guilmette, Marion Roux, Adelaide Calder, Louise Byers, Marion Riley, Ross Greene, Blanchard Brown and Henry Johnson. Any person who can give one period, or its equivalent, a week is eligible. Membership is limited to nfteen for any one term. The Auxiliary has two definite purposes: to stimulate interest in the library among the student body: and to help the librarian. This help is rendered in many ways. Members learn to take care of the desk, find material for the bulletin boards. repair books, cover magazines, review magazines and papers, and gather outside reference material. Some of the members have made library note-books and scrap-books which will be exhibited in the library. A very successful food-sale was held on the twelfth of April, which netted over thirty dollars. This money will be used to help buy the many reference books for departments of science, history, literature and art, which the library needs. Miss Gould, Miss Guilmette and Miss Roux have been of much help in typewriring let- ters, book-lists, and catalogue-cards, while Blanchard Brown has made several very effective posters. All things considered, we feel that We have had a very successful pioneer year, and shall do even better next year. Prize Speaking The following students have been selected to compete in the annual prize speaking con- test on Friday evening, May 27, 192.71 Russell Herbert Blake, '28 Alonzo Frederick Morgan, '28 Mildred Crosby, '30 Eugenia Elizabeth Carpenter, '27 Gladys Gloria Gould, '27 Arthur Graham Ray, '27 Edith Louise Hawkins, '29 John James Roe, '28 A Goodfvvin When Watson opened his door one morning, after he had linished shaving with NVilliams Shaving Cream, he found his friend Holmes in a Brown study. "Watson," said Holmes, "get on your ulster so you Won't Freese and come along." Watson obeyed and slipped his Trusty army pistol into his ulster pocket. "lt seems," said Holmes, as they were seated comfortably in a Checca Cab, "that a Young Hunter was found shot in the Woods near Thornton. The body was found by a Mil- ler who was going to Westheld in his Ford for two Weeks vacation. General Logan, the Tennant of Parkinson Hall, sent for me, since the body was Bourne to his house." They soon reached their destination, and Holmes pulled out some Coyne that was mostly Nichols and paid off the driver. As they approached the gate of the estate, it was opened by the Gardiner whose dignity reminded them of a Herold of old. They then proceeded to the house door and it was opened by General Logan. who had been with Sherman in his march through Georgia. "You are a little Tardief' said he. "but isn't this Merewether we're having?" They entered the living room and were introduced to the General's daughter, a Cute young girl who was playing with her pet Martin and feeding it Rice, the only thing it Ever- QII. Holmes approached the body of the unfortunate Hunter, and reaching into one of the victim's pockets, pulled out a few cigarette Stubbs and after examining them put them into his own pocket. Holmes then asked where the body was found. General Logan answered, THE CRIMSON 53 "The body was found in the Forrest. at the bottom of a cliff we call Black-ledge. The ground had not been trampled down and it did not look as if there had been a Frey." Holmes interrupted, "Where is the gun that you said was found near the body?" Logan's daughter replied nervously, "It's up in Mars-den." The scene seemed to Paine the Angell child and Logan. always anxious for his Child's weak Hart, sent her from the room. Holmes. who had been standing looking out of the window. gave a shout and we rushed to the window just in time to see a Vklalker in a Gray suit passing a Roe of houses on Eddy Street. Making sure that no one was looking. the figure slipped quietly into a Lane and up a Hill where there were several Barnes. They watched eagerly and saw the figure emerge presently. riding in the Kings-Ford. "Logan," shouted Holmes. "have you a car handy?" "Yes. sir. there's one at the door now," replied the Ceneral. The three rushed downstairs, Holmes first. and Vklatson and the General following. and entered Logan's Green Jewett and with the General at the wheel gave Chase to the Kings-Ford. They were going so fast that they almost knocked down a Barber and a Taylor who were crossing the street. They followed the car across the NVaters of the Seekonk. near the place where Williams landed three hundred years ago. and went through Anthony Street to Luther's Corners. By this time they were going so fast that they almost went into a Pond. The Rod- man knew Holmes and waved to him. General Logan finally got the car stopped and turned to Holmes and asked. "XVhat shall I do with the car, Holmes?" The famous detective replied. "Ide Park 'er if I were you." Just then they saw their vic- tim enter a store which was owned by a Vwlelch Carpenter whose brother was a Smith who made Tkacs. Holmes turned to Watson. "Now, Watson. I need your help. I want you to Black- well and generally disguise yourself as a negro and see what information you can get from the storekeeper there. Watson was soon at his portable "make-up" box and in a few minutes entered the store as a negro. On the walls he noticed a Hancock Life Insurance calendar. a Davis Baking Powder ad, and a Henderson seed poster. On the counter was an Oldham. sprinkled with Pepper. that looked too tough to Cook. There were also bags of rye and XVheat-on the counter. Among the other Byers were a woman And-'er-son. and a Miner and a Mason who were argu- ing about the correct price of J Peck of potatoes at that time the year before.

The storekeeper was about to reply when a shout was heard outside and everybody rushed out and saw Holmes pointing at a man on a Stringer of a barn across one of the little Brooks near by. The thief was a man with a Sharpe face and a prominent Adam's apple and evidently knew that he was suspected, for the crowd could Reade fear written all over his face. "Hay-maui" shouted Holmes, "come down before you get hurt." The man had sense enough to obey and descended. but Holmes was ready for him and. when he landed. deftly clapped his handcuffs on the prisoner's wrists. The prisoner became indignant and said. "Say, I'm a Freeman! What do you mean by this? Show me your warrantI" Holmes calmly produced his revolver saying. "This is sufficient warrant for now. Speak- man, tell your Story!" The man, realizing that he was caught. made a clean breast of the affair and did not resist when Holmes led him to the walting Jewett. Watson had meanwhile removed his "make-up" and they were soon all on their way back to their rooms at Baker Street. AWARDS-1927 ANTHONY, HoPE:. Royal Certincate, L. C. Smith Certificate.

CQuich Curtain.j 56 THE CRIMSON Junior B Notes We take this opportunity to impress upon your minds that, although it may not shine in comparison with the Seniors, the Junior B class has its good points and characters. Let us state here at the very outset that according to a quotation from Patrick Aiello, in English class, "Money in your pocket is your best friend." You can readily see from this remark on the part of the "Sheik" why we have such a high standing in the thrift campaign. According to "Professor" Hill, "Harry Flodin is a logical contender for Gene Tunney's heavyweight crown." We must now consider a few other members of the class. Estella Barber is our actress who starred as heroine in the school play. Bertha Speelman and Evelyn Tardie lead the class in scholastic honors. Ruth Breaden, our Spanish enthusiast, and Margaret Dooley are run- ners up for honors. Consider the words of Westfield as heard in class, "Richmond has the 'Oratorical Abilities." Vsfestfleld says little but means much. The prospects for the baseball team look good because one of our live Wires, Earle Anthony. is pitching. Maynard Davis is also out for baseball but his real ability is on the literary side. He is a born author. It will give you an inspiration to read. "When Knighthood was in Tarpaperf' written by none other than our own Maynard. The Misses Hawkins, Sherman and Harrison are working hard in the Physical Training class, and Isabelle Hancock is helping the orchestra with her saxophone. The Misses Farrell, Lucas and Suggitt are lead'- ing in French and we hope they will take a trip to France to test their ability in this language. Someone said that we would soon see Clayton Carlson coming to school in a big car because he is our treasurer, but Honesty is his middle name. Florence Oehrle was our contribution to the girl's basketball team. Barbara Thornton told us how to "rush the shutesn in the Opera House and we all think we would like to try it and get a thrill. Kenneth Morison is our big boy who doesn't say much, but, boy. he can throw an eraser! Mr. Mosby is authority for the statement that Mary Martin is the kiddiest one in class. but Mary is a good girl just the same. Vyfe could go on writing about our illustrious class for two or three pages if space permitted. but we will conclude with a brief reference to our new boy wonder, Mountain. who has come to us from Tech. He has livened our class by his witty sayings and remarks. We want to take this opportunity to welcome him to our class and school if he hasn't been welcomed already. We now rest our case with you and we are sure that you are convinced of the merits of our class. We thank you. Sophomore A Notes Here we are again! Not Freshmen any longer but Sophomores much better acquainted with everyone. Most of our Freshman honor roll students have survived this year and the names of Michael Dicesaro. Robert Huntsman, Mary Rego. Helen Mulvey, Bernice Ormsbee. Florence McPherson and Cecile Guilmette are usually seen on either the honor roll or the honorable mention list. Caroline Bowen, Marion Hough, and Laura Lema have never been known to be anything but cheerful. A smile may always be expected from them on test days although the rest of us cannot even look pleasant-much less smile. Francis Roe's giggle is known throughout the school and whenever he starts to laugh everyone else does also. The class is also entertained by the unexpected remarks of Caley, Allan, and Parker. Merrill Shaw is the class dwarf and so far the giant has not appeared. Evelyn Frey, Marjorie Wynaught, Isabel Hancock, and Florence Pickersgill are artistically inclined, as exhibits in the drawingroom will show. Miss Frey is noted for her grace in handling that awkward geometry compass and Miss Hancock is famous for the new bank- banner which she made for Room 8. Gertrude Monahan and Florence Oehrle are interested in athletics and Miss Monahan was captain of the girls' varsity basketball team this year. Estelle Boudreau and Olive Hascall are exceedingly devoted and are seldom seen without each other. THE CRIMSON 57 Milton Hall is very interested in bugs. birds. and snakes and we wonder if he will become a naturalist some day. Some of the members of our class seem better able to endure the physical-training period this year. Perhaps they are consoled by the fact that there is now only one period daily instead of two. But this is already too long. so with many thanks to our teachers for being so patient with us we bid you farewell until next year. Sophomore B Notes Haw do you do. friends: we hope that you have enjoyed the past year as we have. In that time we have put aside the frivolity of Freshmen and assumed the dignity of Sopho- mores. Here follows our story in brief: Our marks are not so high as when wc were Freshmen but Kathleen Hancock. Philip Sherbume. Arthur V7illiams. Robert Paine and Luther Lewis are still leading the honor roll. Arlene Haskins. M. Ci. Mountain. Austin Roe. Robert Taylor and Alice Vlilson follow closely. Robert Paine is our geometry wizard while Christina Hutcheon is our perfect bookkeeper. The frequent duels between Ridgewell and Roe amused the algebra class till an unfeeling teacher changed Roe's seat. There have also been many interesting debates between Young and Miss Haskins on nationality. Last year it was predicted that Randall and Lewis would shine at athletics. This has come true in fact. for Randall made the '26 football squad and both have gone out for track. "ltches" McGrath has gone out for baseball. VN'e are trying hard at banking interest. but Rooms 3 and 10 are setting a dizzy pace. The assistant stage manager. Vwlilliams. and assistant electrician. Nuttall. of the Athletic play were drawn from our illustrious ranks. Its easy to talk about yourself and. oh well. give the freshmen a chance. Freshman A Notes Wellif we Freshmen have been here nearly a year and we certainly do like it. During this initial year we have been getting into practice for the coming one when we will be no longer Freshmen but dignified Sophomores. Every month on our honor roll are the names of Faith Cushman. "Our Latin Sharkuz Henry Childs. Who is bashful but wise: Herman Deaett. whose vocabulary never runs dry: Carrie Asquino. "Our Algebra Bug." and also the names of Abina Boyd. Ruth Ericson. Edna Ciellett. Dorothy Metivier, and Ernest Perry. Just to show you how sagacious we are I will give you an example: MR. HAYDEN: Johannas. what is a collective noun' JOHANNAS: An ash-can. NOTICEZI Please do not bring toys to class.-Miss Mahoney. The Freshman A class of '30 numbers not only intellectual wizards. but also a fine group of athletes. for its boys are the basketball champions of the school. This team consists of Jimmie Duarte. captain. Bill Holmes. Henry Childs. George Engle. Ervan Horton. and Frank Dawley. Childs and Duarte received silver basketballs for substituting on the varsity cham- pionship team. The most popular girls in the class are Avis Anthony. who has both beauty and brains: Mildred Crosby, who has a very keen sense of humor: Olive Townsend. our quiet beauty: and Barbara Thayer, the only Freshman on the girls' varsity basketball team. And last but not least we will mention our class comedians. the foremost and smallest being Carl "Texas" Wilbur Anderson, who takes a great delight in bringing toys to class. Next in order is Bill Holmes, another "C1ratiano," who talks a great deal and says nothing. Here We will bid you Au Revoir, and not Adieu, for we hope to see you at the meetings of the Rhode Island Honor Society. 58 THE CRIMSON Freshman B Notes The Freshman class this year is one overflowing with brains. The following list of names does not look so promising as I have said but just the same you cannot beat this Freshman class. Now We may consider some of these people whom we have referred to as being brainy. The pupils on the honor and honorable mention lists are as follows: Honor Roll: Isabelle Daggett, Willard Robinson, Ralph West. Honorable Mention: Louise Brogan. Elizabeth lVlcAloon, Ethel Stringer, Paul Paulson. lda Checca. Most of the Freshmen in room twelve behave fairly well, but Wickland is an exception. Elizabeth lVlcAloon attracts the attention of the class during Algebra periods in changing her "fourteen feet to inches." She also has the habit of calling a young unmarried girl "Mrs," Louise Brogan, a blushing little blonde, is an example of why "gentlemen prefer blondes!" Howard Pass with his "plus fours" and snappy socks does make the girls feel that life is worth living. George Anderson is a source of great amusement. We are all thinking of chipping in and buying him a collar with "Jester of East Providence High." written on it. The funny part of it, though, is that no one laughs at him except a few other jesters who think it their duty to do so. Doris McLaughlin, another attractive blonde, certainly does block up the traffic in lbhe upper corridor by talking to her "boyfriends" Truman Patterson seems always to have a supply of ladies' handkerchiefs in his pockets. We at first wondered where he got them until we discovered ours missing. Paul Paulson, like Truman Patterson, has a collective instinct, but instead of handker- crhiefs he has chosen vanity cases. Ida Checca has her troubles in trying to keep her case hidden, since Paul sits beside her. Carlson, known as the door tender, objects to letting girls wave to their friends as they go by in the corridor. Address to Undergraduates Hark ye, one and all, to the message of the Class of 1927. For four years we have toiled through the field of knowledge and scrambled over the briars of examinations. until at last we have reached the pinnacle of wisdom. And now. undergraduates, listen to the words of knowledge that we leave you. Juniors: As the days have passed, the wistful expression upon your faces has shown quite plainly that you are anxious to become occupants of Room 1. When you have attained that honor be sure to be in your seats on time, polish the tops of your desk at least once a month, never leave the heat on with the windows open fan oversight worthy of severe punishmentj , and be sure to take the nrst seats in the Assembly Hall. The rest'-that you must conduct yourself in a dignified manner, spurn the Freshmen, making them do odd jobs for you-will be told you by Miss Cmoff in frequent lectures. Sophornores: You who have learned not to make a rush down the stairs at lunch time but who have not yet reached the stage of repressing your laughter. remember when you are Juniors you are grown up. ln fact you will be constantly reminded of this. lf you always aid your home room teacher by dusting her desk and running errands. learn your lessons as well as we did, you will be an ideal class, at least in that teacher's eyes. Freshmen: Attention, you inhabitants of the third floor. Cease your giggling and for the sake of the towns finances stop chewing your pencils. You should remember that you are insignificant creatures and should be seen and not heard. Alas, the way you run through the corridors shows that you need to profit by this advice. However, during your senior year, you will become civilized by contact with the austere Juniors and Seniors. Finally, let us advise you to pattern yourselves after our illustrious class, and as far as possible be a credit to E. P. H. S. THE CRIMSON 59 Alumni 1839 It is always with' much interest that we follow, not only the careers of graduates of E. P. H. S.. but of their children who. too. are graduates of our school.

Not much like the CRIMSON of today was this iirst one! The irst CRIMSON sold for 10 cents a copy. Today it sellsfor one dollar a copy, 1 hear a scornful member of 1912 say "ls it ten times as good today as it was then?" Mav I not answer, "Is true worth measured in dollars and cents?" For fifteen years the Alumni Editor has tried. in her very limited way. to keep those interested informed concerning the activities of alumni of East Providence High School. She has followed with much personal interest, not only for Efteen years. but for longer. the careers of her beloved students. When she has failed to mention them in the CRIMSON she has had no news to give. Much to her sheer joy one keen. handsome. debonair member of 1912 challenged her for not having men- tioned members of the class of 1912 often enough in past years. In the several letters that have passed between this same member and the Alumni Editor he has given to the Editor most charming glimpses of his own home life and of his two delightful youngsters. XVould that We had more like him! 62 THE CRIMSON Speaking of families, the editor ran into Helen Canfield Messinger the other day. She was out shopping with small Shirley and Bobby. Baby Natalie Helen was home asleep. Fm willing to wager there are no dull moments in the Messinger household, for two livelier youngsters you never saw than Shirley, full of pride in the possession of her baby sister, and Bobby, trying to be everywhere at once. Helen and Sewall are to be congratulated on their little family. Ellis Hawkes, more familiarly known as "Jack" Hawkes is at the Warren branch of Cooper-Kenworthy, Inc.

Marion herself looks like a girl in her teens, notwithstanding the responsibilities of a family of three children, an invalid father and mother. A "gallant lady" is Marion! 1914 Faith Shedd is dietitian and public health worker in the schools of Cranston. She is doing a wonderful work with the children of Cranston.

She sang also "L'Heure Delicieuse" fStaubl: "Nuit D'Etoiles" l'De Bussyl: and the A"Waltz Song" fCiounodJ from "Romeo et Juliette." another selection testing a far more mature voice than Marys She sang the much loved "Caro Nome" fVerdiJ from "Rigoletto" like a pro- fessional actress of wide experience. She sang also "The XVoodpigeon" fLehmanl: "Loch Lomond" fFritz Kreislerj: "A Spring Serenade" fGilbertel. "Come Hither Lyttle Childe" fSpa1dingj, and Ciilberte's exquisite "Moonlight-Starlight."

On the first day of this rnonth. everyone jovially slaps everyone elses back. and cries, "Happy New Yearf' At least. the ones who are able to be out of bed do that. The majority of the world, however. is in hed on New Year's morning. sleeping off the effects of the preced- ing night. After going through this formality. everyone promptly forgets that there is such a thing as a new year. Why people can make such a fuss about another years departure. is beyond my compre- hension. They don't seem to realize that another year has gone out of their lives, never to return. And the great foolishness of iti School-girls. young married couples. and even middle- 70 THE CRIMSON aged people, celebrate their New Year in a riotous manner. And then, for over a week after- wards, everyone looks tired, cross, and bedraggled. New Year's has gone, a past episode, and everyone starts to look forward to Fourth of July. For two and a half months after the cries of "Happy New Year," the weather is cold and disagreeable. The snow piles up around our doors. April comes with rain, wind, and plenty of mud. May brings in a host of bills for Easter's new clothes. June, July, and August reek with heat and mosquitoes. September-more bills for summer clothes. October- Daylight Saving ends. November-snow. And lastly, December brings Christmas. Still people cry "Happy New Year." Probably they always will say that. A sense of humor is a great thing to have in this world. -GLADYS GOULD, '27 The Muse Lingers for a Moment At night when all the world's asleep and dreams, I slip away unseen down to the sea To revel in the beauty of the scenes That God has made for others and for me. The waves cast spray on rock and sand alike, And break at last so gently at my feet: A wondrous scene, indeed so fairy-like That elves themselves you might begin to seek. A bark of frlmy, fairy Huff appears To take us into kingdoms of delight, Where we poor mortals will not weep nor fear, But rest and play, carefree in Warm sunlight. Just now this world seems gladsome, gay and bright- This sonnet has been mighty hard to write. 1IDO.ROTI'IY LARNED. V2 7 Reality Although some poets sing of woods and trees, And their weird dance and cries in windy weathera Of warm blue sky, of clouds, a balmy breeze, Which rustles lonely through the heather, I like a bard whose theme in life runs thus: "A man I am, and strong in truth must be. Sweet flowers and trees-who makes a petty fuss O'er unreal things, when life is real to me? ti I like a storm, the thrill and joy of battle: A brook in spring, its rocks dashed o'er with foam: The fear, the risk of herding sullen cattle- 'Tis life to work, then know the peace of home," God made that man a bard so He might show The world His balm for suffering and woe. --HELEN WINSLOW, 'ZF' THE CRIMSON 71 A Group of Girls at the Movies Un the row behind mel U had not noticed when I took my sea! that behind me was a whole row of girls: so I was not in the LEAST preparedj "Oh dear. why don't they hurry and begin?

The air was sultry and without motion. "Surely" I thought, as I looked across the vast expanse of gently heaving water. "there is little sign of the storm prophesied by the old fisherman." Even while I watched. the cloud grew larger: the air became more sultry, and looked heavy because of a yellow, grey, haze which appeared to rise from the surface of the water. The cloud expanded, approached. with startling rapidity, and soon the whole sky was crowded with low-hanging, fast-moving rifts of mist. A breeze fanned my cheek. Then came the wind. It came howling. Simul- taneously I heard the boisterous sound of rushing water. Erom out of the haze there emerged a huge comber, a rolling cliff of wetness, moving toward me with the speed and noise of an ex- press train. The cliff tripped over itself, collapsed against the hard sand of the beach, broken into foam and spray, and roared deafeningly. The storm had broken. --ARTHUR LOFQUIST. '2 7. THE CRIMSON Thoughts Teacher said. "Our class must write a sonnet.' A sonnet?" said I. "And what's a sonnet?" Oh it's two verses of six lines each. And then two more added on to it." Each verse must rhyme I nearly forgot: So I sat right down and thought and thought: l thought of the spring with its budding trees: I thought of the summer and the ocean's breeze: I thought of the birds. the bees, and flowers. And I thought of Schoolday happy hours: I thought of my classmates and how soon we must part Also of the teacher so dear to my heart. But no thought of a sonnet entered my head. l'm sure you'll know it when this you have read. -el. THORNTON BAKER, '27 At Morning The new day dawned so fresh. and fair. and clear. And yet while all around me was asleep I slipped into the meadows which were near And walked across the fields with grasses deep: The birds were softly singing in the trees: The roses nodded sweetly in their dreams: The leaves were swaying gently in the breeze. And buttercups enhanced the charming scene. The lake lay blue and calm beneath the sun Like painted glass reflecting pictures gay. Around the bend a flock of ducks now come While feather'd choristers begin sweet lays: The calm and peace of heaven is breathed here from A cloudless. peaceful sky with brilliant morning sun -ETTA HEROLD. '27 The wild sea wind blew fair. blew fair and free: My back I turned upon the world of men: I spread my sail and sped across the sea: At last with joy I had come home again: Again I felt the breeze upon my brow. Again I saw the sun dance on the wave: Again while foam went plying past the prow, Again the spray my cheek and hand did lave. Oh, you may sing the land so green and fair. The land with many flowers bright and brave. But dearer yet to me the ocean air. And fairer far to me the restless Wave. A storm tossed ship drenched with the flying foam, Is all my happiness where'er I roam. -GEORGE EMERSON, '27 F4 THE CRIMSON The Babys First Tooth Mr. and Mrs. Jones had just finished their breakfast. Mr. Jones had pushed' back his chair and was looking under the lounge for his shoes. Mrs. Jones was sitting at the table holding the infant Jones and mechanically working her forefinger into its mouth. Suddenly she paused in the motion, threw the astonished child on its back, turned white as a sheet, pried open its mouth and immediately gasped, "Ephraim!" Mr. Jones, who was yet on his knees with his head under the lounge, at once came forth, rapping his head sharply on the side of the lounge as he did so, and, getting on his feet, inquired what was the matter. I "Oh, Ephraim," she said, the tears rolling down her cheeks and the smiles coursing up. "Why, what is it, Aramathea?" asked the astonished Mr. Jones, smartly rubbing his head where it had come in contact with the lounge. "Bahy!" she gasped. Mr. Jones turned pale and commenced to sweat. "Baby! Oh! Oh! Oh! Ephraim! Baby has got a little toothy, Oh! Oh." "No!" screamed Mr. Jones, spreading his legs apart. dropping his chin and staring at the heir struggling with all its might. "I tell you it is," persisted Mrs. Jones with a slight evidence of hysteria. "Oh, it can't be!" protested Mr. Jones, preparing to swear if it wasn't. "Come here and see for yourself," said Mrs. Jones. "Open its 'ittle mousy-wousy for its own muzzer: that's a toody-woody: that's a blessed 'ittle lump of sugar." Thus conjured, the heir opened its mouth sufficiently for its father to thrust his fore- finger in it, and that gentleman, having convinced himself by the most unmistakable evidence that a tooth was there, immediately kicked his hat across the room, buried his fist in the lounge and declared with much feeling that he could "lick" the individual who would dare to intimate that he was not the happiest man on the earth. Then he gave Mrs. Jones a hearty slap on the back and snatched up- the heir while that lady rushed tremblingly forth after Mrs. Simmons, who lived next door. In a moment Mrs. Simmons came tearing out of her apart- ment into Mrs. .Iones's as if she had been shot out of a gun, and right behind her little Miss Simmons at a speed which indicated that she had been ejected from two guns. Mrs. Simmons at once snatched the heir from the arms of Mr. Jones and hurried it to the window, where she made a careful examination of its mouth, while Mrs. Jones held its head and Mr. .Iones danced up and down the room to show how excited he was. It having been ascertained by Mrs. Simmons that the tooth was a sound one and also that the strongest hopes for its future could be entertained on account of its coming in the new of the moon, Mr. Jones got out the necessary material and Mrs. Jones proceeded at once to write several different letters to as many relatives and friends. unfolding to them the event of the morning and inviting them to come on as soon as possible to interview the new interest at his apartment, '-IXIORMA BARNES, SO. VVhy l Sit in the Front Seat At present I am the proud possessor of a position in the schoolroom which. though scorned by many, is very precious to me. This place is regarded by most as a place of punish- ment, where the unruly occupants are constantly under the watchful eye of the teacher. Others regard it as a position of honor awarded for close attention in class. The place I refer to is the front seat. When being assigned a seat, I risked the jibes of my classmates and stepped boldly forward to occupy this place. Declining a seat among my usual companions I took this position, where I could. indulge in no more exciting diversions than an occasional whispered request for a pencil, eraser, or fountain pen. My companions begged me to take a seat near the back. where, they thought, I could take part more or less frequently in such amusing actions as throwing paper aeroplanes, making low-spoken criticisms of recitations. and drawing silly pictures. In the front seat such pastimes would be promptly stopped by the teacher or frowned upon by the serious occupants of the surrounding seats. THE CRIMSON 75 Surprised as they were at my action. my usual neighbors ventured various reasons for it. Some thought I took the place at the beginning of the term to avoid the embarrassment of being moved there later. as I undoubtedly should be. Others attributed my action to the lure of other students' themes. which the fortunate occupant of the front seat could borrow from the teacher's desk when she was not looking. and thus enjoy a laugh on the other students. The opinion was also ventured that I had decided to become very studious and had selected this seat to assist me in my effort. I smiled and shook my head when I was asked if these were my reasons. Vslhen the period started. the teacher rose and took a seat fn the back of the room. I smiled at the gloomy faces of the disappointed back-seaters. Last term I had noticed this habit of the teacher. Acting on my observation. I had selected the front seat. -E. L. XIARSDEN. '27 "Peace, ho, let every noise be stilln Not a sound escaped the assemblage. Not even the wind was heard moaning in the tree tops. A crisis was at hand. Every eye was turned upon one man: every heart was set upon one thing. The cause of this great attention was looking very grim indeed. His stern visage showed no sign of wavering: he could do his best and no more. The crowd was by now almost dead with apprehension. The man took two steps and seemed to be throwing his arm out of joint. There was an intermission of a split second followed by an audible swish and a dull thud. An inarticulate cry escaped another man. and thunderous noises came from the crowd. Amid the shouting. clapping. stamping and cheering a new element was heard. East Providence had struck the last man out. and the school band blared into the martial strains of the "Vfinner." ill-IAURICE INIOUNTAIN, '29 An ldler's Reverie One summer aftemoon not long ago' as I chanced to wander thru a freshly plowed field. I found an Indian Arrowhead. Climbing a little hill. I saw stretched before me a beautiful panorama of gentle slopes. green woodlands and here and there a crystal brook. As it was a spot of unusual beauty and as yet unspoiled by men. I sat down to enjoy it and half-abstractedly began to toy with the Arrowhead which I still held in my hand. Suddenly a Hood of memories swept over me and I thought of the Indian of bygone days who had this veritable paradise before him always, and I deeply envied his carefree happy life. He had no financial worries. no "civilized and pro- gressive" customs to be hemmed in by and best of all no work. He had. I mused. but to hunt a little for his food: but who would call hunting through these woods. work: make his weapons and occasionally engage in a friendly massacre. Abi that was the ideal life. And then I thought of the greedy and ever encroaching white man. and bitterness filled my heart. Now a cloud covered the sun and it rained and things took on a different aspect. My "veritable paradise" was "all wet." and I thought of my Indian tramping gloomily thru the forest looking for his supper and cursing softly to himself. And I pictured him at home sullen and tired. surrounded by a crowd of yelling papooses and to top all. a sharp-tongued squaw. Poor fellow he should have had a club to go to in his dire extremity. And then as to work. when it rained for days at a time he was a prisoner inside of a dirty little Wigwam with the same hcrde of small savages and the same vixenish squaw constantly at his heels. Oh! we men of today little realize what a blessing our offices are. Then I thought of Indian war- fare, the stealth and cruelty, the horror of seeing one's children butchered like so many sheep, and my Hesh crept in sympathy with my rapidly beating heart. It was growing dark and I was rather damp and in truth so shaken by this last thought that I hastily beat a retreat. Now when I feel hurt or bored I turn to my imaginary Indian and am comforted. and great is the wonder and bewilderment of my "better-half" when after being the butt of a iery tirade I gently soothe her and set things to rights in our home. -DOL'GLAS ALLAN, '29 76 THE CRIMSON When l Tried to be Obliging "Well, thank you very much, sir. Anytime I can do anything to oblige you-. Why, what's the matter. sir? I hope I haven't done anything to offend you. What's the matter?" "What's the matter! Why, every time I hear that word I feel like kicking myself. Obliging! Hmm, that's what got me into all my trouble." "What trouble, sir? You don't seem to be in any trouble." "I don't, eh? NVell, it's a long story and if you don't want to get married yourself, you might learn something by listening to it. It happened on a night many years ago, long before prohibition was thought about. "I was captain of a full-rigged ship plying between Boston and South American ports. On one voyage I met a sea captain who invited me to a small party to be given at his home. Why I accepted I don't know, but any way I went. There were more ladies present than men: and after a while, I got over my bashfulness. The liquor and bright lights and women's Voices must have gone to my head, for, when I was called upon to make a speech, I said something like this: 'Ladies it is no fault of mine that I am unmated. I detest and abhor bachelorhood. If late were to place one of you charming, blushing maidens in my path, I would consider myself the luckiest of human mortals. In the presence of such charming and beautiful witnesses. I denounce bachelorhood and despise the bachelor'. "I just meant to oblige my host by paying this compliment to his lady friends, but one of the young ladies took to heart what I had said, and before I knew it, I wasn't a bachelor. To make a long story short, she made me retire from the sea and startin business. "And here I am in this stuffy office with a longing for the sea and a staunch quarter-deck beneath my feet." -WALTER MONAHAN, '27 To a Cloud O. sailing cloud. where do you go, Drifting along in the blue?

The Alumni received quite a shocls since they were continually forced backward and the score of their juniors mounted but we must give them credit for the manlv way in which they tool. a 22-8 defeat.

Hope proved. as always a dangerous opponent but our boys were worthy of the highest commendation for the way in which they strove to even up the score playing good clean hard football until the final whistle blew. A large throng of spectators from East Providence and Hope did their best to urge their respective teams to victory. The score at the final whistle was Hope I3-East Providence 7. There were a few who claimed that East Providence could have won that game easily if it had not been for 'Swelled Heads' but really people who offer that criticism are to be pitied rather than condemned, FRIDAY OCTOBER 8 l926 Vfell. folks. something happened to XX'est Vfarwick at Cilenlyon Field todavf Nearly every man on the squad had a chance to play too' Vftst Vs'arwick couldnt get going at all. and after trying to stop Merewether.

Commercial was baffled. They looked for a forward pass. and an end run came. They looked for a center rush. and a pass came. They tried hard but fell before their mighty foe. The tally at the close of this battle was East Providence 30 and Commercial 0. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1026 Classical came to Glen'ycn Pield in high spirits.

Up and down the field the determined teams. pushing. plunging. and diving. forced their way. Then came the one minute silence for the memory of the real warriors who died trying to force down a civil foe. At the time the silence signal was given Capt. Rice and his men knelt down and bowed their heads in prayer for those beloved heroes. That was an illustration of reverence which will never be forgotten. When play was again resumed East Providence seemed to have added spirit, and forced their hosts backward until at last the pigskin passed over the final line. lt was during this game that Ogg. a Freshman. showed his spirit. and offered the Pawtucket squad another problem to think of. All our boys played hard. clean football in the style which has made "over the river" squads famous. One of the largest crowds in scholastic football history was present at that game and saw East Providence win a pennant. set an example for reverence and win a victory which will go down in the annals of scholastic football.

They also were represented on the teams selected by the football coaches of the Interscholastic League. as were Merewether. Jeffrey. and Lofquist. Football Celebration As soon as the football season was over and East Providence was again declared the winner of the interscholastic football pennant. plans were begun to honor our famous gridiron heroes in a suitable manner. Members of the school committee. East Providence High School Parent- Teacher Association. and the Alumni Association were active in these arrangements. It was decided to invite the members of the squad to be guests of honor at a banquet which would be open to all friends of the school. This plan instantly found favor with the relatives. friends. and followers of the team, and on Tuesday. December seventh. every seat at the ban- queting tables was occupied for more than one hundrd and fifty were in attendance. At the head table were seated members of the school committee and their wives, the pres- ident of our parent-teacher association. representatives of the press. the coaches. and speakers. The members of the squad were at a special table set down the center of the hall. The loyal supporters were at smaller tables on either side of the center table. Each table was attractively decorated with small Christmas trees. red candles in crystal candlesticks. and red berries in crystal vases. The stage with its lighted fireplace. gaily bedecked tree and evergreen festoons presented a cozy background and home-like atmosphere. 82 THE CRIMSON After all were satisfied with the bountiful turkey dinner served the tables were cleared away, more chairs brought in, and the balcony and rear of the hall soon filled with students. A varied program of speeches, humorous, congratulatory, and serious was interspersed with selections by the orchestra. Mrs. Edgar S. Ray, president of our parent-teacher association, presided and introduced as toastmaster Mr. Samuel Lincoln of the school committee and alumni association and a member of the famous championship team of 1899. With apologies to O. O. Mclntyre we shall attempt to present the high lights of the various speeches in Grills from the Gridiron Mr. Oldham: Our team is remarkable for its qualities-f-it has the strength of a Forrest, has Rice for its favorite food, has Speed in it, contains a Viall of medicine to "pep" it up. and can play in all weathers, but is partial to Merewether. Mr. Maryott: Yes, l've been coach of a champion baseball team and Wally Jameson hasn't been that.-Our boys are not spoiled by their victories, but still have their feet on the earth.--We are very much indebted to the Glenlyon Dye Works for the use of their athletic field. Miss Spink and her Goodrich Zippers. Mr. Reed: The spirit of the people of this town is exceptional. We lack that in Provi- dence.-You have a clean-cut set of fellows on your team,-A remarkable record. the fourth consecutive victory and the sixth in the nine years of Jamie's leadership. Fred Mulvey's acceptance. A tribute to "Jerry" Adams. Judge Walsh: Good, clean, hard fighters who live up to rules have nothing to be ashamed of in their private lives-Let me pay a tribute to "two beautiful little ladies," your cheer-leaders.-The coach is responsible for teaching the rudiments of the game and the train- ing rules.-The team is representative of the high school of which its members are a part and their future actions should reflect credit on the school. A tribute to Kingsbury, the East Providence High School Track Team, the cross-country champion of the lnterscholastic League, who goes out to meets "all by his lonesome." Mrs. Remington-lf you'll tackle the games of life as you've played football, the town will be proud of you, and you will be a credit to your state, and country. Senator McMeehan: Seven is the perfect number. Next year you will win your seventh football pennant, then go on and make it seven in succession. Coach Jameson: Mr. Coppen has invited the coach, coaches. and trainer. that's me.- This is as line a bunch of boys as I've ever had anything to do with. Our boys have played good, clean, hard, strenuous football.1lf we can't win them squarely, if we can't win them fairly, we don't want to win them at all. 1899. A tribute to Mrs. Jameson, the assistant coach. who deserves almost as much credit as her distinguished husband. As Others See Us The following statement was taken from the Proviidence Sllfldllll Journal of February 20, 1927. after we had defeated NVoonsocket in basketball l4-ll and thereby clinched the pennant: "The fact that East Providence High has won another pennant in the lnterscholastic League is just another tribute to the line. loyal athletes turned out at the school across the Seekonk. The town boys certainly have some of the stuff that will take them a long way when the old bell rings and they start the game against the outside world. "lt is to the credit of the coaches and faculty of East Providence high that there never has been a team come away from a contest over there with a word THE CRIMSON 83 of criticism of the way the town teams play the game. A school that con- tinues. year in and out, to hang to a course like that commands respect as well as admiration." is fr nt is Again in the Journal of March 17, 1927, we found this comment: "lf every community displayed the same enthusiasm over both winning and losing teams as the students, friends and alumni of the school across the river. high school athletics would be on a far higher plane in this State. Those who have never been fortunate enough to get invitations to an East Providence celebration have missed something really worth while." vs: x ze at "Much as we prize the possession of the numerous pcnnants we have won. we value in- finitely more our reputation for clean sportsmanship and the good opinion of our friends." -MR. lVlARYOTT Basketball Notes After a slight intermission from the strenuous football season. Coach XX'elch issued a proclamation to the effect that all basketball candidates should meet in Room 20. About thirty prospective candidates applied. Out of the thirty about ten remained in fighting togs. some being veterans of last year's team. After a few weeks of training E. P. started in on its "hoop career." DECEMBER 14. 1926 A strong-looking aggregation from South Kingston came to East Providence to give entertainment for our hoop men. lt was easy to see that looks are deceiving because at the end of the first half the score was ll to 7 in our favor. Although losing. the South Kingston boys gave E. P. a few points in basketball. piling up 15 points to 31 for E. P. DECEMBER 16. 1926 After a two days' rest the Barrington Basketeers came up to E.

P. started in to play what looked to be a fast game. but Mulvey and Davis proved too fast for the Barrington Hoop Men. The result was that the game lagged until the tinal whistle made it a thing of the past. Score: E. P. 32: Barrington IO. DECEMBER 30. 1926 Tymsalc proved to be another victim to our snappy basket men. This game was not a league game but it gave our boys the chance to touch up on their weak spots. On the floor Tymsalc proved to be a fast unrelenting team. and when the game ended the score was: E. P. 25: Tymsalc 16. JANUARY 4. 1927 East Providence was host to the Central Falls team, and again our boys came out unde- feated. Mulvey. Goodwin. and the "mysterious" Higgins were a fast trio that worried the Central Falls group into a 28- I 8 defeat. JANUARY 7. 1927 Today East Providence journeyed to South Kingston to play a return game. Although in strange territory Higgins. C. Goodwin and Mulvey soon found the baskets and put the ball through many times. The South Kingston boys seemed to forget where they put their baskets but managed to score a few shots at random and at the end of the tally the results were: E. P. 22, and South Kingston 13. JANUARY 11. 1927 Our old football rivals came to the Town Hall and played a game of basketball with us tonight. Forrest came forward but was passed by husky Deck Davis and it looked as though they were having a contest between themselves to see who could shoot the most baskets. Anyway, Pawtucket went home wiser than when they came, for a 4 was not a large score when E. P. rolled up 36. 84 THE CRIMSON Mason, C. Goodwin, D, Davis, E.

JANUARY 18, 1927 East Providence entertained the Classical students at the Town Hall. lt looked like one of the most promising games of the season, but alas!

West XVarwick came up to the Town Hall and found a hard job in fmishng the Hoops. Our boys lct them play with the ball once or twice but not more than that and the result was that E.

JANUARY 28, 1927 Hope High court men came up to the Town Hall to play basketball with our boys, lt was a very snappy game and all the spectators enjoyed the contest. Time and again the Hope men sent the ball through our basket, but we answered in due time with a little extra. This game marked the half way part of the league. The score was Hope 15 and East Providence 26. FEBRUARY l. 1927 Freshmen are the cause of all our downfalls. we ought not to have to play with them: but anyway the worst is over and the R. I. State Fresh have a few sore spots to remember that they were in a game with the E. P. Basketball team. The score was E. P. 18 and R. l. State Fresh 25. FEBRUARY 3, 1927 Back in our old stride again! Mulvey and Forrest are working like perfection itself. Davis. Goodwin and Higgins are a trio that made the very buildings of Central Falls quiver. The Hnal score read this way: E. P. 15 and Central Falls 13. FEBRUARY 8. 192 7 Pawtucket didn't have enough the first round so our boys traveled over to furnish enter- tainment for the Pawtucket team and spectators. Forrest and Davis furnished plenty, Mulvey did his bit and Ernie Goodwin added his work, When it was time to leave. E. P. was 42 points in and Pawtucket had been able to snatch only 3. FEBRUARY ll, 1927 Commercial came over to visit us tonight: Andy Forrest. Ernie Goodwin and Mulvey were on the reception committee. and Commercial got one of the hottest receptions in its hiztory. At the end of the half the game stood. E. P. 31. Commercial 2. Then some more was given by E. P. and at the finish the score was E. P. 56 and Commercial 4. FEBRUARY 15. 1927 ' East Providence took a little journey over to Classical High tonight and put up a stiff light throughout the ensuing game. At the half way mark the score was E. P. ll. Classical 2. The onslaughts of Mulvey and Forrest further weakened the home team, bringing the final score to E. P. 27 and Classical 6. FEBRUARY 17. 1927 Tonight we met the team that brought defeat on us before. We turned the tables this time. however, and wreaked our vengeance. lt might have been the lack of noise and con- fusion at the Town Hall that made Woonsocket lose, or it might have been due to the absence of annoying remarks shouted at the referee. Anyway. try as they did. it was fate that Woon- socket should suffer for their unbecoming conduct at previous games and it was in the presence of a large group that the downfall took place in the form of a 14-ll victory for little E. P. FEBRUARY 22. 1927 Today E. P. embarked on a triumphant trip to West Warwick where they were entertained royally. West Warwick still showed its preference for a score of 3. That is perfectly all right. however, since it was possible for Mulvey. Davis and E. Goodwin to roll up 27 points. FEBRUARY 23, 1927 This is the lifel A basketball game a day, and all away from home. Today we left for St. Georges School, a very ine place. and fas we learned laterl a very fine group of basket- ball players. They surely earned their victory. lt was a pleasure to lose a game to such exceptionally considerate opponents. Score E. P, 16 and St. Georges 18. 86 THE CRIMSON MARCH 1, 1927 A little trip of exploration was undertaken by the court boys from E. P. today. They journeyed to Hope St. High while they in the course of events became involved in a game of basketball. We learned later that Hope was very sorry to have suggested such a form of amusement for in that frolic E. P. hung a 23-5 defeat on its foremost opponents, and inci- dentally clinched the basketball pennant for 1927. Basketball Celebration Feting and feasting victorious teams seems to be becoming the favorite indoor sport of our parent-teacher association, for a second time this year it has sponsored a banquet in honor of a victorious athletic team. On March seventeenth the members of the championship basket- ball squad were guests of honor at a banquet in the school hall. This affair was less elaborate but no less enjoyable than the football celebration. The table reserved for the boys ran parallel with the stage. Two other tables were arranged to face this and all were decorated with green crepe paper runners, green candles and green favors in keeping with the day. There were no set speeches after the dinner but Mr. Lincoln in his usual witty fashion presented gold and silver basketballs to the players and managers, Mrs. Remington then presented a wrist-watch to the coach, Mr. Vifelch, who replied briefly and Httingly, Then everyone adjourned to the Masonic Temple where a Victory Dance completed the celebration. About two hundred students enjoyed the evening which everyone declared a great success. Members of the executive board of the parent-teacher association were present as chap- erones. ln addition to our own basketball squad the girls' varsity basketball team. boys' hockey team and members of the Central Falls basketball team were also special guests at the dance. Hockey 1927 The middle part of December saw some very cold days and it was not long before the ponds had a coating of ice fit for skating. Accordingly Capt. Lunnie called out all candidates Wishing to play hockey, and there was a generous response. On December thirteenth. twenty- four candidates reported for the nrst practice. lnasmuch as there were only two regulars left from last year's Championship Team, it meant that four boys had to be rounded out and ntted into the shoes of Arthur Ross, Phil Sundin. Paul Thayer. and Arthur Gustafson. After three days of practice the squad was cut to twelve men. Practice started again the following Monday, December 20th. at Burr's Pond, and a team composed of Read. Rice, Reilly. Capt. l-unnie, Young, and Lindell was picked to represent East Providence in Hockey for the coming season. The next week we received word from the manager of the Auditorium that we could have half an hour hockey practice on Saturday, January first, in the Auditorium. In a practice game we beat Commercial 5-O. This put conndence in the boys, and the next week's work was all the harder. On Saturday, January eighth, we played our first league game with Classical. At the end of the first period Classical was leading l-O. The second period was scoreless Near the end of the third period our forwards broke through Classical's strong defense and Read scored the goal which tied the score. The first over-time period ended with the same score. but in the second one Read skated into the scrimmage, took the puck down the ice, and shot a high one past the Classical goal to give us our opening game. The following Wednesday we journeyed to Roger Williams Park, where we took the measure of Technical by a score of l-0. On Saturday, January 15th, we played our old rival Hope. Again Hope was first to score, East Providence not scoring until the final period. when Halpin, who substituted for Young, scored on a pass from Reilly. This meant another over-time period game. In the second over-time period Hope's center put a low shot in the cage to give us our first and only defeat of the season, THE CRIMSON 87 The following Saturday. we met Cranston in one of our best games of the season. The boys went into this game with determination to beat Cranston and take first place, but three periods of hard and strenuous play resulted in no score. Once more we were obliged to play over-time periods, and once more the first period ended with no score. The next period was nearly over before Read carried the puck through the entire Cranston team and put in a goal, which beat Cranston and put us in a triple tie with Cranston and Classical for first place. The regular six played the entire game in which each one played a stellar part. Saturday, the 29th, we played Pawtucket. Although this team was tied for the bottom. it was improving rapidly and we were prepared for a hard battle. The game ended in a victory for us by the score of Z-1. Cranston and Classlcal also beat their opponents. and the triple tie continued to prevail. The following week East Providence played Commercial and was favored to win. but here we received our big surprise. Commercial was leading at the end of the first period by a score of 1-0. ln the second period Commercial played a six man defense which we were unable to penetrate, and as a result the score remained unchanged. In the third period, with only one minute and fifteen seconds to play, Reilly skated down the ice and scored a goal which tied the score and saved us from being defeated. Vie played two over-time periods. but no score resulted. This tie with Commercial eliminated us from first place and we had to be sat- isfied with being runner-up. With the opening of the second round. Cranston was on top with a two point lead. and we were second with a one point lead over Classical. Saturday. February twelfth. we played our first game in the second round with Classical. This game meant a great deal to us because the loser was practically out of the running for the pennant. Vie appeared for the first time in our new suits and made a big hit. The game started 0E with very fast and hard playing on both sides. The play was in Classical's territory all that period and no score was made. The second period saw the same kind of hockey and ended with the same score. The third period opened with play going down to Classical's cage. Our forwards were taking shot after shot but Classical's star goalie turned them all down. Classical got the puck on the side and came to our defense. which stopped them before they could take a shot. Again Read was the hero, Taking the puck from behind our own goal and skating down through the Classical team. he scored on a shot which was too much for the Classical goal tender to stop. In the last two minutes of play. our defense turned down all their remaining thrusts with ease. The score at the end of the game was l-0 in our favor. Cranston also won its game and remained on top. Our next game was with Hope on February 19th. Vfe were very anxious to defeat our old rival, because up to this time it had been the only team to beat us. Defeating us :his time would mean second place for them. The first period was very fast, but neither team scored. We opened the second period with a drive which kept the puck in their territory most of the time. but still there was no score. The third period was very rough. and numerous penalties were imposed. The puck see-sawed up and down the ice for another period. and still there was no score. XVe played two over-time periods. but neither team was able to score. and the game ended in a scoreless tie. The next game, with Cranston, was to decide whether or not we would get first place. On Saturday, February 26th. when both teams took the ice. the crowd was running wild with enthusiasm, for this was the most important game of the season. The first period started with very fast but clean playing on both sides. First the puck was at our goal and then at theirs. neither team being able to score during that period. The second period We threw a scare into the Cranston crowd when our forward line broke through their defense, and only for the excellent work on the goalie's part we would have scored. The puck was up and down the ice for the 'remainder of that period. The next period they threatened to score, but their shots were all brushed aside and the period ended with no score. The two overtime periods were very fast and the players on both sides were exerting every effort to score, but the final score was 0-0. On Saturday. March Sth, we played Pawtucket. So far our forwards had not been able to score more than two goals in a single game, but in this game they went on a goal-getting rampage and defeated Pawtucket 5-2. 88 THE CRIMSON The game with Commercial the following Saturday ended the season for us. Because of what happened in the first game with Commercial we went after them with a determination to win a decisive victory. The result was that the game ended with the score 6-1 in our favor. Cranston played Classical the same day and beat them 2-0, thereby winning the pennant and leaving us in second place. Although Cranston won the pennant they were unable to defeat us during the season. Young, Lunnie, Lindell. Read. Reilly. Rice, Mason and l-lalpin played fine hockev during the entire season. Lindell was elected Captain for the coming year and we wish him the best of luck. Baseball When the first signs of spring came in March. Coach Wallie Jameson invited prospective baseball candidates to report for practice, A record crowd of 60 responded, and at the end of three weeks of practice this number was cut to 18. The presence of seven regulars from last year's team gives E. P. an advantage over the other teams, and we look forward this year to the championship in still another sport. In its initial game with Westerly, E. P. showed that it had championship material. In a hard-hitting game we defeated Westerly. the score being 8-4 in favor of E. P. Our first league game proved easy. Commercial came over the river, but we sent her back nursing a lO-l defeat. Halpin pitched fine baseball, and the team gave him excellent support. The score: E. P. 10 and Commercial 1. On Friday, April 22, we took the measure of Cranston. All through the game it was a pitchers' battle with Gomes more than holding his own, allowing but three hits. The score: E. P. 2. Cranston 0. In a non-league game at Glenlyon, Durfee High beat us 9-0. The game was stopped in the fifth inning on account of rain, but YVallie graciously called it a contest and awarded the verdict to Durfee. On account of a heavy schedule that week, E. P. did not use her regular pitchers. ln an unexciting game at Woonsocket. E. P. batted the ball all over the field for fourteen runs. allowing Woonsocket to score but one. The score: F. P. l4. Woonsocket l. Another non-league game, and another defeat for us. XVe entertained Central Falls at Glenlyon field, but the entertainment cost us the game. The score: Central Falls 3, E. P. l.

THE CRIMSON VARSITY BASKETBALL SQUAD 90 THE CRIMSON Girls' Varsity Basketball Under the coaching of Miss Freethey a varsitv basketball team was started, the first one to be organized in the East Providence High School. There were about twenty girls out for it so that our coach had a fairly good number to choose from. Our first game was played with West Warwick on their home court, where We were badly defeated 61-13. This did not discourage us, however, and in the following game we defeated Warren at home, 16-15. The next contest, which was played at home also. turned out 21-15 in Bristo1's favor. The following week we suffered defeat from Warwick at Warwick, 85-10. Then the team began to improve and brought itself up a great deal in the opinion or its opponents. We tied Bristol on their court 11-1 1. The following week we conquered Cran- ston ZZ-18. The next two return games were lost to West Warwick 35-16 and to Warwick, the R. 1. State champions, Z7-23 respectively, both games being played at home. The improve- ment can easily be seen in the scores of the first ccntests and the return games. As this is our first year, and. from a group of girls green in regard to the elements of basketball a fairly good team was composed, we closed our season with hopes and good wishes for the next year's team. We want to extend our thanks and appreciation to Miss Freethey, who coached us splendidly all through the season. also, to our Varsity Captain. Gertrude Monahan and to our Manager, Boonie Anthony, for their efforts in our behalf. The following girls made their letters, old English type, the first to be given out to a Girls' Varsity Basketball team at East Providence High School: Hope Anthony, Eleanor Bearce, Ina Broster, Betty Carpenter, Rita Gill, Marion Goff, Ellen Oldham, Virginia Perry, Barbara Thayer, and Virginia Thayer. Tennis With the beautiful sunny days of autumn upon us, Miss Freethey decided to conduct a Girls' Tennis Tournament. Approximately twenty girls responded to the call for entrants. On the first round Miss Freethey, improvisor of the tournament. drew for partners. but from then on partners were selected from the eliminations of the preceding round. ln this way no favorites were considered, and it was all in all a very fair tennis tournament. All the games were played on the courts at Roger Williams Park. As day after day slipped by, the remaining players grew less and less. and before we realized it, we were down to the semi-finals. The semi-Hnals consisted of Ruth Hascall, who was defeated by Hope Anthony. 6-2, 6-1, and Charlotte Kirk, who won from her opponent, Charlotte Taubert, by default. With the elimination of these contestants, it now brought the tournament to the finals, Miss Kirk was defeated by Miss Anthony by the score of 6-2, 6-1. Class numerals were awarded to the winner of the contest. Those taking part in the tournament were as follows: Alice Hanley, Ruth Pregent, Ruth Goff, Hazel Deaett, Dorothy O'l..eary. Marion Hough. Marion Goff, Ruth Hascall, Olive Hascall, Avis Anthony, Estelle Boudreau, Charlotte Kirk. Betty Carpenter. Charlotte Taubert, Isabelle Manning. and Hope Anthony.

To the Honorable Court of the Amazon. LADIES: Herewith I present to you my report concerning the East Providence High School. lately excavated. On entering the building I met a guide dressed in uniform who took me first into a small room at the right which she said was the ofiice. Opening a drawer. I found a collec- tion of strange articles marked 'Lost Articles." The most frequent object was a small. round metallic box which contained a white. powdery substance and which had a reflecting surface inside the cover. After looking over the records of the students, who seemed to delight in get- ting "70" tas yet I have been unable to und the value of this mark J. I went across the hall into a room which my guide said was the library. She began to point out members of an illustrious class that graduated in 1927. "Here," she said. pointing to a large picture of a very intelligent looking man. "is the portrait of James E. Roe. the most famous president the high school ever had: and over here this very studious looking person is Richard Breaden. a Latin Professor who. it is said. not only conversed Huently in that language but. when a boy. learned the Harkness Grammar by heart: see. this charming woman is Helen XVlnSlOW. also a 1927 graduate. whose novels have lasted through the centuries. And here is Hope Pickcrsgill. whose verses have never yet been surpassed: behold this dark eyed beauty. Dorothy Larned. who was a famous historian and wrote that well-known "History of American: ah. here is a most pious gentleman who was always prophesying destruction if the folly of this once great nation did not cease. the Rev- erend Austin Nlerewetherf' In this interesting library was also a glass case which contained confiscated "notes" which. my guide explained, was the name for a piece of paper on which was written a message. and which was conveyed from person to person while the teacher was not looking. also those paper aeroplanes which the barbarians used to throw about the room. Then my guide led me to Room "VVon." On the board there still remained one question of a college entrance test, "Extract the cube from Steere's Bouillon Soup." "Everyone," my guide explained. "failed on this question except Curtis Cushman who later became the famous mathematician who measured the width and length of an electric current." Next my guide led me to the "Haul" which had many historic events connected with it. You may still see the two tables with their pitchers of water and paper cups that were used at debates. "At one of these debates." my guide informed me. "George Blackwell. becoming so excited in trying to put his speech across. literally followed it with a flying leap into the audience."' Here you may also see a rather dilapidated desk at which the principals stood when they so cruelly told the barbarian students to pass out, which command. however. these ancients refused to obey. Afterwards my guide led me to Room IO. where she said. Ovid. Cicero. and Virgil, those persons Whose famous works in Latin are still read. though sad to state not enjoyed by our school children. as boys were taught. Although we have searched diligently, we have Deen unable to find the scholastic records of these famous men. The next place of interest was Room 20. a chemistry room. "In this room." said my guide, "it was necessary to make liquiied air to cool a few hot-headed individuals. In this room adjoining." she continued. "is a skeleton which on a certain mysterious night walked about the building and the next morning was found by a teacher in her favorite position." All this was very interesting and I was just going to examine the skeleton more closely When, remembering an appointment I had to visit the monkeys at Roger Williams Park. I looked at my hour glass on my ankle and found I had to go. Hoping this will be satisfactory, I remain. Yours respectfully. Rt. Rev. Prof. Dr. Mr. AGUINALDO SOJAJ-1, A. B.. E. F., J. H., I.. M.. X.
