History, Homemaking English English Music Chemistry French Agriculture German, Latin Commercial Subjects Editorial June, the most joyous month of the year, has arrived bringing with it our graduation from a high school world into a vast world of reality. In the past. few of us have had many serious re- sponsibilities or grave problems to solve. The problems that we have encountered in our school work have been the prob- lems of the text book, carefully pre- meditated by the author and usually answered at the back of the book. Al- though we have been accumulating a vast fund of knowledge in our few short school years, it has been somewhat of a theoretical nature. In this world that we enter today it will be our task to apply this knowledge by linking the theoretical to the practical. Problems will no doubt arise that were not dealt with in the class-room, and we shall be left to draw upon our own resources for the solutions. There will be no teacher to make corrections or offer suggestions. and there will be no table of answers with which to check our results. Some- times more than one solution may seem to be correct, but here again we shall be left to make our own decisions. It is evident that our high school training will for the Hrst time be reflected in our methods of handling these practical problems of life. Let us all strive to make this first reflection a good one. Our class can justly be proud of its many outstanding members who have brought honors to the school through their activities outside the field of study. In the band and orchestra, in debating and in art. to mention only a few, some of our classmates have made reputations which will not perish quickly. We may boast, too. of our outstanding athletes who have carried the name of our school into fields of sport. Many times the teams have been victorious and have re- turned with honors. Also they have often gone down to defeat before su- perior teams. But win or lose our athletes have always displayed that spirit of good sportsmanship which is synonymous with the name East Prov- idence. Yet in spite of all, it is inevitable that we shall eventually be known only by the term 'AThe Class of l937." It is with the hope of forestalling this that we are publishing our year book, ded- icated to the faculty, to the students we leave behind, and to our own class. May it live always as a remembrance of the serious, yet happy. carefree days, that we have spent together in East Providence High School. O those of us who have witnessed a number of graduation programs there is something a bit trite about commencement oratory and messages to senior classes. Nevertheless, I am going to risk a few words to you, the members of the class of l937, with the thought that what I have in mind is perhaps just obvious enough to have been over- looked by some of you. The boy or girl who has a particular skill or aptitude as the results of natural endowment is very fortunate. The boy or girl who has no such gift but who has acquired proficiency in some field through strenuous application is also fortunate. As teachers we have looked back over the records of our grad- uates and we have found ample evidence to support the contention that success in the classroom is one of the best criteria for determining later success. We have on occasions, however, observed that certain unpromising people, when faced after graduation with the stern necessity of getting along, have learned the value of application and have gone on to do outstanding work. Naturally the ideal that all schools aim to achieve is to bring all pupils as quickly as possible to the realization of the joy and profit of work well done. Thousands of young people are graduating this month from the secondary schools of this small state of Rhode Island. Hundreds of thousands are being sent out from high schools throughout the country. The number is far in ex- cess of anything that the people of a generation ago ever dreamed of. All of this leads to one simple deduction. The average high school grad- uate is at least as well educated as the average graduate of thirty years ago. How- ever, the law of supplyiand demand operating here as everywhere has reduced the dollars and cents value of the high school diploma. Colleges, technical schools, hospitals, and business houses, thoroughly aware of the greater var- iation in the abilities of high school graduates, are filling their ranks on a highly selective basis. Just what should this mean to you as a member of the class of 1937? Soon vou will be striving for a place in the economic life of your community. De- spite the fact that a great deal of legislation is being formulated to improve the status of the worker, and despite the fact that jobs are to some extent given out on other grounds than merit, you are living in a highly competitive society. Your chances of a satisfactory place in it will depend largely on your willing- ness to "plug along" and earn recognition. Graduation from high school, college, or even university cannot guarantee anyone anything. Nor can diplomas or degrees mean the end of study, When you have learned that the successful men in business and in professional life are students throughout their lives you are in a fair way to direct your lives ac- cordingly.

I .1-it SEIIIUR HIGH S QQCJX K Qflvoo' The Junior Class elected its ofhccrs during the month of October. and line selections they were. One of the schools outstanding students and athletes. Ray Blomstet, was given the honor of carry- ing forth the junior class banner as pres- ident. while Bobby Porter was elected vice-president. Bobby was one of the cheerleaders who gave their best to push East Providence teams to the top. l can see Ray and Bobby now as they conduct one of the class meetings, as capable officers as you could hope to see. ln the role of secretary taking down notes in her best class shorthand is Virginia Pratt, another of our cheerleaders. Rich- ard Drayton is all around these days trying to collect, with apparent success, those fifty cent dues that are expected. The .Junior Prom on April ninth proved to be a great success, for which a great Si 'D :JL ' 41431 'I N Class of 1938 deal of credit is due Betty l.eonard and her able assistants on the social com- mittee. We think that our class has been particularly fortunate in presenting to almost every field of school activity such worthy members as John lVlcAloon to the football squad and Charlie Williams to the baseball squad. Decidedly not to be overlooked is Harry Peckham who captured the State Pencing title. Apart from the activity of sports we have Ray Tennant who took one of the leading male roles in the Contest Play. 'AThe Tie that Binds." In almost every school activity you will find that among the names of people taking part the junior class is well represented, and we certain- Iy hope that as seniors we shall go for- ward with the fine work that has been left to us by the present senior class.

If: VC' u If 1 .bf XA' of 2 iii! Q 'i VX ' . -. Class History Silent and awe struck was the class of 1937 when it entered the revered corridors of E. P. H. S. Many disdain' ful glances did we receive from the dig- nified seniors. but bravely we marched forth. Upon entering, we were given advice as to the manner in which we were to conduct our very insignificant selves. Then we began the first of our three eventful years in our alma mater. 1935 presented many thrills for us. One of the greatest was when our de- bating team brought the championship to E. P. The playoffs were nerve-raclv ing, but we came out head and shoul- ders. Then came the school play, Sidney Howards A'Christopher Bean," a com- edy made famous by Marie Dressler and Page six! tj--four Pauline Lord. ln that same year we saw the contest play and senior play, both great successes. Finally came June, and with it came our reward. for we were to have three lovely months non- chalantly to pass all books by. September brought with it a Junior class much more dignified than that which had entered the previous year. Now it was our turn to admonish the silly sophs. During 1936 we entered upon a new field of extra-curricula ac- tivities, namely the radio play. This proved to be both entertaining and suc- cessful. An enthusiastic audience found the school play, 'AThe Poor Nut," hilarious entertainment. The play, which is a farce satirizing the popular applications of Freudian psychology on ai' .gjyfglxma Y X K Qxgqf! JA of ww EHST PROVIDENCE . 1 ., . YI "lx fi-a '."5':.f4fta ' -mira. A. . ...P ., a college campus, had hardly a serious moment. Once again came our annual contest play, this time a colorful farce entitled 'iThe Moving Finger." The vivid coloring and striking costumes combined to make the play one of com- plete enjoyment. Quickly, much more quickly than can be supposed, came June. In September we all marched eagerly forth, now as seniors! The first thing we did was to elect class officers. Then came the social committee, and a fine one indeed. Their arrangements for all entertainment were unexcelled. In April, we, the now haughty seniors, gathered in the Assembly Hall to attend a class meeting. We voted for caps and gowns and the election returns brought 144 votes in favor of and 12 against. fRather obvious that we wanted them, no?J Then came once more the contest play entitled "The Tie That Binds." It was a story of Caro- lina mountaineers. And most hilarious of all was the fact that our leading lady land a very fine one at thatj had to learn to smoke a corn cop pipe. We were all green with envy at her ability to act. She was just plain green Cfrom the pipe.j Along the line of sports, our baseball team wasn't very successful but made a good showing. Later came re- c .- . . :ju 5' . SENIOR HIGH SCH hearsals for the senior play and the night of the play itself. It was an ex- ceptionally good play, entitled "Three Live Ghosts." Oh yes, and the State Championship for fencing was brought home by the captain of our team. Com- petition was very strong, but our hero came through with medals! Cor maybe it's a loving cup, I don't remember.j Then came Class Day, the most dif- ferent and elaborate Class Day that has ever taken place in E. P. H. S. Next on the list was that night of nights, grad- uation! And I'm afraid I must admit that more than one lump rose in the throats of the grad's. Many times in the past three years, we had scoffed and loudly proclaimed how glad we would be to leave, but when the night of part- ing came we realized how very foolish we had been. Then to top it all came our senior prom. What an affair! It was the gayest, the brightest, the most lavish prom that has ever been graced by the lovely gowns of the girls and manly charm of the boys. And thus do we pass through the stately portals of East Providence High School to march bravely onward and make our tiny niche in the world of the future.

"I want to see the editor of this blasted newspaper!" he stormed, frown- ing portentously at the smiling switch- board operator. "Name, please?" questioned the fair damsel, with studied casualness. i'Phillip Painchaud: what's yours?" For a moment the cloud was lifted from his smooth countenance. "Mine's Louise Allen, and Miss Del- Rossi will see you now," she returned brusquely, and he stepped into the pri- vate ollice. There, curled in a mammoth arm- chair before a huge desk piled high with scattered papers, sat Miss Irene Del- Rossi, editor of the leading newspaper of the day. Her youthful brow was furrowed in perplexity as she scowled over a typewritten article. "That Andrew Fales must be a Chinese in disguise," she grumbled wearily, unaware of Mr. Painchaud's silent entrance. "If I can't read his typing, what must his handwriting be like? This article can't be true. It says, 'The team of Russell Varnum and Sam Barney in their unique interpretation of hula-hula dances won boundless ap- proval from a distinguished audience last evening' As if-" Mr. Painchaud stepped forward eagerly. "That is true. I saw it my- self, and it's a wow! Those dancers present an unusual picture in their beautiful grass skirts," he ventured with Page sixty-six genuine enthusiasm, and for the first time the little editor was conscious of his presence. "What do you want?" she inquired weakly. began Mr. Painchaud solemnly, "have come to demand a retraction and printed apology. In yesterday's edition of your newspaper, you claimed that Richard Hauck was the best stage de- signer of the day, as well as the best stage manager. That, my dear editor, is a truly unforgivable mistake. Mr. Hauck is not a designer, merely an as- sistant, and, although he has many im- portant positions as manager, it hap- pens that I am by far the best stage manager of the present generation." Instead of the flustered apology which he had expected, Mr. Painchaud was greeted with a sudden storm of de- fiance, and he made his exit swiftly and meekly amid a flurry of typewritten papers. Editor DelRossi returned to her desk with a sigh of profound weariness, and resumed her interrupted scrutiny of the Stage News. "My goodness!" she exclaimed sud- denly. "Can this be true? It says, 'A tragedy such as never before has been witnessed, written by that brilliant author, Alice Sweezy, was staged under the able direction of the newly-famous dramatic coach, Olive Weeden. Head- ing the all-star cast was the Glamor Queen herself, otherwise known as Evelyn Merritt, whose performance is one to be long remembered. The mod- ernistic scenery, aV,masterpiece which left the audience breathless, was designed by EHST PROVIDENCE .A ,r . . 2.315 A-v 213.-3. . -1 -u 'g"S'F-1521, u'1'.Z'11 1 - a man who has risen to unsurpassed heights in the world of art, Armando Cinami. In the supporting cast appeared Miss Lucille Chauvin, whose rendition of "Ave Maria" touched the hearts of even the most impenetrable, and Alfred Whitehead, who blended his unusual voice occasionally with that of La Chauvin. It is rumored that these two will become a permanent team of vocal- izers, and that Ellsworth Goff, pres- ident of the Goff Manufacturing Com- pany, manufacturers of painless safety pins, is eager to sign them for a coast- to-coast hook up for should we say pin up?J. The other members of the cast deserve considerable praise, from hand- some hero, Clinton Sellew, to sneering villain, Raymond Vanslette, and slink- ing siren, Theresa Mazzeo. The cos- tumes, by far the most outstanding of any to appear this season, were created by the internationally famous designer, Irene Checca. In spite of the tragic note of the play, there was one most impressive scene in a nightclub. Tap dancers Ruth Fiske and Jean Hutson, accompanied by the currently popular successor to Astaire, Charles Richards, lent a gay atmosphere to the truly mag- nincent scene. Even those most severe of critics, Emil Agren and Wilfred Carl- son, agree that this Sweezy drama is a masterpiece which only a true genius could have conceivedf " The little editor placed the paper upon her overcrowded desk and spoke softly into the small box before her. "Send Reporter Walker in here," ,she instructed. In a moment the huge door of her office swung inward and Miss Walker confronted her glaring editor. "I want you to get some news for this paper!" stormed Miss DelRossi. SEIIIOR HIGH SCH "something new, something different- understand!" Miss Walker nodded solemnly and left the ollice, her heart filled with des- pair. "Say, Harriet, what's new? The chief's boiling over," she sighed dis- mally. Harriet Goff, star reporter, smiled at her disgrufntled companion. "Well," she drawled, "that rising artist, Pauline Agronick, was seen'parading in front of the ritzy Russell Gardner Theatre last night, dressed like Mahatma Ghan- di. Police officer Arthur Pierce arrested her, but it turned out that she was be- ing initiated into a club of some sort." Reporter Walker sadly shook her head. "That won't suit the editor." she declared. "Say," spoke up sports commentator Theresa Andrews, "I've got something you can use. The famous criminal law- yer, Edna Higgins, just received pardon for Russell Baptiste, winner of the re- cent Olympics, who dashed absent- mindedly through the Park Avenue apartments of society matron Julia Simeonie while taking his customary midnight work-out. "That might do," agreed Reporter Walker, "but I need something to knock her eyes out! Doesn't anybody know anything?" "Elizabeth Chace is appearing in Carnegie Hall with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, at S50 for the very cheapest ticket. That gal certainly can tickle the ivories!" exclaimed sob- sister Sylvia Amaral enthusiastically. Reporter Walker nodded her head. "Yes, but everybody knows that," she sighed. "That's no news."

"I've just heard that there's a new or- phanage over in the other side of town. I believe it's run by a young woman named Ruth Marsden. Strange as it seems, she has in it exactly ninety-nine children, all under seven years of age. And they say she's as happy as they are, and they're all mad about her. Imagine playing the role of mother to ninety- nine youngsters!" "Oh, you people are no help at all!" complained Reporter Walker, and left the building in search of NEWS. In a crowded section of town she suddenly noticed an important appear- ing young man with long hair, and a huge bow tied at his neck. Expectantly, she followed him through the throng, feeling that there, indeed, was a story. She was more than a little surprised to find him turning toward the poorer sec- tion, but she followed close behind, even when he turned into a huge, ram- shackle boarding house on a narrow street. Up the winding stairway he climbed, and she pursued at a safe dis- tance. By the time she had reached the top, he had disappeared into one of the many rooms. At a loss as to what to do. she was suddenly attracted by the sound of a disgusted groan which pro- ceeded from a nearby room. The door being ajar, she peered in to discover a unusual scene. Bending over a ITIOSI small table, her hair in wild disorder, her entire being. from flushed face to crossed feet, smeared with ink, sat the groaning creature, writing madly and continually crossing out the words that she had scribbled. Beside a huge win- dow worked a neat young woman, painting on canvas. The artist beckoned to Miss Walker to enter. "This is Barbara Bristol," she smiled. "Please forgive her rudeness, but she has nearly finished writing a book she be- Page sixty-eight SEIIIOR HIGH SCH gan in high school, and the ending just won't come out as she wants it to. I'm Lois Davis." "Could you tell me who the man is who just came upstairs? He's rather young looking, and wears his hair long, and has on a huge bow tie," inquired Miss Walker, ever a reporter, "Oh, that's James Scott. He's a very clever poet. We expect him really to amount to something before long. Of course, we all hope to reach the top, but he is exceptionally talented." Reporter Walker gazed at her in dis- appointment. She had thought that he was a truly important personage. Oh, well, perhaps in a year or two she could write a story about her first glimpse of the famous poet, James Scott! "Do many of you artists and writers live here F" she inquired, although her interest had diminished considerably. "Oh, yes," said Miss Davis. "Mil- dred Ballard, Isabel Butterworth, and Lucille Mansiield live downstairs: they're all artists, or perhaps I should say that like myself they hope to be. Francis Greene usd to live here. Per- haps you've heard of him. I-Ie's been hired to paint the murals for the new White House. Oh, by the way, who do you think will win the election? I don't know whom to vote for. It seems to me that James Tracy and Kenneth Trayes are both such admirable char- actersI" "Well, I'll tell you," remarked Re- porter Walker solemnly, "I always con- sider the candidates for Vice President. They don't make rash promises and million-dollar speeches like the pres- idential candidates, and you can judge them better by their silence. I vote ac- cordingly. Do you understand--or don't you? Well, anyhow, I consider Agustus Grocer superior to Dante Gen- EFIST PROVIDENCE ' 73? -'ET'-. gsgq. nari. My reason is very unusual, I must admit. I saw them play basketball once, and I liked the way Grocer chewed gum. It was so-well, so artistic. Therefore, I shall vote for Tracy for President and Grocer for Vice-President." Miss Davis nodded understandingly, and hurriedly changed the subject. "Are you looking for rooms?" she inquired. "Olive Bennett owns this boarding house and her rates are very reasonable." "Bennett's Boarding House," mused Reporter Walker. "Name sounds fam- iliar. Could I have heard it before?" "I expect you have if you've read Byron Kirby's best seller. He used to live here, and he mentioned it a number of times." "He lived here?" "Yes, he was as poor and hardwork- ing as the rest of us. I understand that he has two private secretaries now: be- lieve they're named Norma Pont and Virginia Pulliam. He does all his dic- tating to them while he sits in an easy chair and smokes a big, black cigar. That's the life!" Reluctantly, Reporter Walker left Bennett's Boarding House and returned to the newspaper building, without a story. Upon opening the huge door that led to the private oflice, she was bombarded with a burst of mournful symphony. Her momentary alarm gave way to a sardonic smile and she nodded with sudden comprehension. So this was why the little editor insisted upon having a piano in her oilice! On the shiny piano stool perched Helen Tuc- ker, and one on either side of her, each with an active instrument, sat Helen Gray, violinist, and Irene DelRossi, cel- list. The former two were members of the newly formed Dimond Symphony ,,.. ' SSIIIOR HIGH SCH Orchestra under the direction of the well-known conductor, Ellen Dimond. Slowly, cautiously, Reporter Walker withdrew, closed the door, and return- ed to her desk. In another section of the huge news- paper office sat Helen Tkacs, writer of "Advice to the Lovelornf' Her chin rested upon a clenched fist, and she was staring gloomily into space. Private secretary to Miss DelRossi, Evelyn Ran- dall, happened by just then, and stop- ped to determine the reason for the va- cant expression. "I'm having so much trouble with my column!" moaned Miss Tkacs. "Everyone is so full of woe that it makes me weep!" Miss Randall continued on her way with a secret smile, and gratitude in her heart that she was a mere secretary and not a bearer of the world's griefs. Suddenly there bustled among the desks and reporters a group of womeng upon the face of each was grim deter- mination. Into the private office they stormed, and abruptly the beautiful serenade ceased. "I am busy now," declared Editor DelRossi from behind her cello. "You will be doubly busy when we are through with you," came the gruff reply. "I am Helen Henderson, dean of the McCarthy School for Girls. These are some of my teachers: Cora'Phillips teacher of mathematics: Eleanor Stevens, of English: Jennie Vallone of gymnastics, Alice Poyas, r teacher teacher teacher of stenography, Ardalee Band teacher of typewriting: Hazel Cordier, of German: Anne Dimond 1 r teacher , teacher of history: and Rita Stone, my private secretary.

You stated that our school was named for its founder, the late Rose- mary McCarthy. My dear young woman, Miss McCarthy happens to be in Europe at this very moment and will surely fly into a tantrum when she hears of your error. It is true that she is the founder of our school, but she gave the money for it from the sum she won in the Wonder Brain contest. If you will recall, Fred Reilly and Stephen Peck, those sterling politicians, were the judges. Therefore, we demand a printed apology immediately!" Miss DelRossi flushed, and waved her huge bow in theif' angry faces. A'Very well," she shouted. "I'll do any- thing if you'll only get out of here and let us finish this serenade!" With a scoff and a sneer, the grand ladies departed, but only for a few minutes was the music allowed to con- tinue. With a sudden clatter and crash two disheveled young ladies stumbled into the room and attacked the unfor- tunate editor with a volley of excla- mations. j "SayI" cried one. "Gee, boss, we've just unearthed the grandest story! Hey: wait a minute!" "Goodness!" screamed the other. "We're in the wrong place again." With increased shouts they stormed from the office, slamming the door with a force that resounded throughout the entire building. 'fWho on earth were they?" ques- tioned Helen Gray breathlessly. "Oh," smiled the little editor, "Ruth Barney and Thelma Fife, star reporters for a rival paper. This isn't the first time they've done that. When they get excited they just dash for the nearest office and hope for the best. Usually, they're wrong, but it doesn't seem to bother them much. They're good re- Page seventy ' ' 1-1--.-. . WGS'-31. A -iss. porters, though, the best in the bus- iness." ' Reporter Eales entered the oflice and confronted his disgusted editor. "That welfare worker, Elizabeth Colt, is outside to see you again," he stammered. "Tell her-" stormed Miss DelRossi, 'ftell her to go-home and come back tomorrow!" "O. K., Boss," he replied, and backed from the room. Irene turned to her fellow-musicians with a sigh of resignation. "I guess it's just no use, .girls. We'll have to call it off. Come around to- morrow and we'll continue where we left off." "By the way," exclaimed Helen Tuc- on her pan-cake hat, ker as she drew 'lhave you heard about Eunice Olson? They say that she's gone to Hollywood to star in a picture called 'How To Hold Your Man.' They expect she'll be a tremendous hit, even though it is her first movie." "Huh!" snorted Helen Gray. "I can beat her at love scenes any day in the week." Amid musical laughter the girls de- parted, and the little editor returned to her desk with a faint smile playing across her flushed face. Hardly a minute had elapsed before she was informed that a Mr. Meservey wished to speak with her. "Why, hello!" she cried as she re- cognized the famous football star. "Hello yourself," returned he with a friendly grin. " I happened to be in town today and thought I'd drop in and find out all about my old class- mates. It seems to me that you, a news- paper editor, should know just about everything." When he had settled himself com- HIUR HIGH SCH EHST PROVIDENCE I -Ein 1, c - 'fr-H S E .-. .':- i fortably in a cushioned chair, they be- gan to exchange bits of friendly gossip, and, unnoticed, the hours flew swiftly by. "Well, Meservey, you'd be surprised all the old classmates I run across in this business," said the editor. "There's rarely a day that I don't read at least one name from the '37 class. Take to- day's edition: I think there must be al- most half of the class mentioned. It was fortunate that you came in today. Why don't you stay a few minutes? I'll read you a few." Meservey had been on his way up from his seat, but at these words, he slid back. "Irene," he said "that would be just fine. Read on, I'm all ears." With that, the little editor twirled about on her chair, jumped up lightly, and ran to a filing case on the other side of the oflice. Prom the top of a foot high stack of papers she took a crisp white newspaper. "Here's the morning edition," she said. "This paper seems to be just made for an alumni meeting. Wait till I start reading: it will floor you." Irene settled down into her chair, spread the paper on her desk, and be- gan reading: "Hollywood, Calif., June I9-Ap. At Los Angeles Superior Court this afternoon, Harvey Grant, leading chem- ist in a large Hollywood film studio was awarded damages of 820,000 from the firm of Arsenault and Quigley, a prominent chemical manufacturing con- cern of San Francisco. The damages were paid after Grant had sued the lat- ter for infringing on his patented natural color film process." "Say" gasped Meservey, "those boys didn't let the moss grow under their . Lub- '.- ,D p 6-. feet, did they? Have you any other news like that? It's queer that all of those boys came from East Providence. Are you sure those are the fellows we knew from the class of '37?" "Yes, positively," said Irene. "I've been following that case for weeks. But we mustn't waste time: there are lots more mentioned here on this very page. Let me read on," and the editor did so. "New York, June 19-Up Green- wich Village is all astir over the sur- prise visit of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor to the party held in the studio of Aldo D'Amico and Russell Titus, well known magazine illustrators. Ru- mors are about that the former Ed- ward VIII staged one of the famous falls from the clay model of a horse in the studio. The Duke and Duchess were entertained by the dancing team of Mary Starck and Thelma Slade, stars of Broadway who danced to the music of Nivelle Beaubian and his orchestra. The former Mrs. Simpson was instructed in the newest dance steps by Hugh Swan, noted master of the dance. Later, Mr. Swan pronounced The Duchess a most apt pupil." "That one does floor me," choked the astonished Mr. Meservey. "I'd call that a regular old home week! Just imagine! The Duke and Duchess of Windsor!" "Calm yourself, Frank: there's still more to come," Irene laughed. "Re- member, I'm still on page one! We're going over-seas for the next item on page two. Here it is:-" "I.ondon, June 19-Ap. The fa- mous Corn on the Cob night club, run by .Ioe Asquino, former Broadway promoter, was visited by the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose late this evening. Their Highnesses were accom- Page seventy-one DIOR HIGH SCH -.1-, EFIST PROVIDENCE E! ."'F'f- 43.121 , panied by the Duke of Burpinhod and the Earl of Straffordham. The party was entertained by Juanita Turner famous blue singer. Other entertainers in the floor show last evening were John Andrade, leader of the club's or- chestra, Dolores Santos, and Albert Currier, star dancing team, and Eileen Ricci, Louise Gibson, and Barbara Davey, members of the chorus. 'By all indications our royal visitors seemed delighted by our American mode of en- tertaining,' Asquino stated after his guests had left." "Just read on." Meservey sighed. "It's unbelievable but true." Miss DelRossi flipped and scanned the pages of the edition. Finally she spotted another item. Then she read on: - "Newark, N. J., June 19-UP. A transcontinental transport plane carry- ing Miss Ruth Halton, popular motion picture actress, landed at 7:09 this morning. The plane was piloted by Kenneth Johnson: the stewardess, Miss Elsie Swanson, was commended by Miss Halton for her efliciency. Miss Hal- ton will appear in the Production, "Sail- ing High" to be staged by Thomas Taft, Broadway producer." Read on," Frank murmured. "There's no need of my gasping any longer. I'll listen and pass off quietly." Irene chuckled, turned the page and read on- "Chicago, Ill., June 19-UP. At the General Hospital this evening, Rus- sell Reney, star hockey player of last season was treated for a strained neck obtained fso rumors goj from spying on Fred Gillett, a rival player who was practicing a few trick shots for next winter's season. Dr. Edmund Greulich, who treated Mr. Reney, reported that his patient would be out and around Page seventy-two 'iifariii-' -is! . SEIIIUR HIGH SCHOOI within two days. Incidentally, Reney hasn't settled that S35 salary deal with Leonard Smith, manager of the Toronto Red Jackets." The little editor didn't pause-she cleared her throat and began again, "Seattle, Wash., June 19-AP. Miss Laura Brown, formerly of East Prov- idence, R. I., was awarded the Typing Championship of the World today. The contest was judged by Skipper Quickfmgers, former champion." "It's just marvelous," Meservey mused. "Go on, please." The little editor did so. "Miami, Fla. June 19-AP. Two lucky girls pinched themselves this morning to see if they were dreaming. They are Registered Nurses Ethel Riley and Ruth Williamson. The girls were left fB500,000 each by the late Cyrus Moneybags of New York. Both are un- decided about how they will spend the fortunes. Best of luck, girls, you're surely enjoying it now." "Say," choked Irene, "I need a little refreshment after that." The editor pushed a button on her desk and in less than a moment a trim office boy appeared. "Boy," Miss DelRossi said, "will you go over to Flint's for some sand- wiches and two coffees?" With a polite "Yes mam" the boy turned on his heels and went out the door. "By the way," Irene said, "that Flint to which that boy is going is one of Harold Flint's ice cream parlors. He's running a large chain of stores-they're all over New England and New York State." "No kidding?" Frank asked: "but say, that reminds me. About three years ago I ran into Helen Callahan way out in Akron. She told me that she and EHST PROVIDEIICE "'i'jg'-- -.aw z.. . 5-th 'g' fi-fflfi .-fxzgg ,- Vera Bousneld were running a cosmetic plant in Columbus." "Only last week I saw an advertise- ment of theirs in the 'American Digest.' Your products and business must be very good in order to get into that magazine." "And say, wasn't that great that Elliot Plummer won the Indianapolis Speedway Memorial Day Race? An article I read mentioned that Curt Roh- land and Ralph Berry were two of the judges on the race." Mr. Meservey was interrupted by the oflice boy returning with the eatables. Frank bit into his sandwich with great enthusiasm and then continued, "I was reading in the home town newspaper that Edward Currier is go- ing out for the American Olympic Track Team. The same article said that Helen Foley has won a post on the Women's Swimming Delegation. I wish them luck: they deserve it." "That was one that I missed," Miss DelRossi said between bites. "You see, I haven't time to read everything, but I did read a few years ago in the home town paper that Florence Gauthier, Ann Abajian, and Marjorie Anderson were establishing an exclusive clothing shop on Waterman Street, in Prov- idence. From the large advertisements they were publishing a few years later, I gathered that their business was a great success." "Another add that I read was a no- tice publishing the establishment of an employment agency by Eldora Rund- gren and Margaret Wright. Two or three weeks ago I received a letter from Gertrude Santos, who's a buyer now in a large New York department store. Gertrude wrote that Eldora and Mar- 1-Lu. ?frfr'," . SEIIIOR HIGH SCH garet are running a flourishing business today." "But here, let's get back to our read- ing: there's still more news in it." Irene swallowed the last of her sand- wich, took a sip from her coffee and started to read. "Berlin, June 19-AP. Two Amer- ican women news correspondents were injured in a Brownshirt uprising at the Reichstag today. They were Miss Mar- garet Poole of the New York Times who received bruises and abrasions, and Miss Emily Greene of the Philadelphia Ledger who suffered a sprained ankle. William Ford, a fellow correspondent in Berlin, reported that the two women were trying to gain admission to "Der Fuhrer's" quarters in order to gain an interview when the uprising occurred." Irene left not a moment for com- ments but upon spying another article, she began again:- "Paris, June 19--UP. Miss Esther Pinkham, an American girl, secretary to a prominent Paris banker, Monsieur Pierre Lenoir, was notified today that she was first prize winner in the Na- tional Lottery. Miss Pinkham plans to return to America as soon as possible." Again, without a pause, the little editor continued:- "Tokio, Japan-AP. Three Amer- ican business women have found success overseas. They are Ann Salisbury, Vir- ginia Costa and Anna Gaboury. All were formerly of Rhode Island. These three smart girls found that the Japanese are very fond of chop suey and chow mein. With that information, they established a canning factory for pre- serving these -products. Today, the daily production in their factory in Tokio numbers in the thousands of cases." Page seventy-three EHST PROVIDEIICE ' 'r . , .:.3,.. in 515512. After all the reading. Irene needed to take a deep breath. She breathed deeply, turned the page, and said. "Listen to this one: it's a wow!" The editor chuckled and began:- "Omaha, Neb., June 19-AP. Frank Clegg and Arthur Fishlock, both for- mer New Englanders, have patented their automatic hen feeder. This amaz- ing machine is operated on the principles of the famous New York Automats. In various compartments, each of which is covered by a sanitary glass door, tempt- ing poultry foods are displayed. The hungry hen approaches the feeder, in- spects the fare and then opens whatever door she desires merely by pressing a small button with her bill as she has been trained to do." Meservey could do nothing but curl up in his seat in spasms of laughter. Irene could do nothing but wait until he had quieted himself. Then the locale of the news items changed. The editor read on:- "The Hague, Netherlands, June 19 -AP. Two American girls, Berna Sul- livan and Grace Harrington have charge of the gymnastic training of the daugh- ters of the Princess Juliana. Both in- structresses report both children most eager for sports." "Now, don't you think I deserve a few second's recess so that I may drink the rest of this coffee-cold as it is?" Irene asked her visitor. "All of this traveling has about taken the wind out of me." Frank roused himself as if from a stupor. l'It's perfectly all right with me, Irene," he said. "But say, is all this fact or is it fancy? It's surely hard to swallow all of it. Just imagine! Lon- don, Paris, Tokio-say, that reminds me: I correspond with Walter Fish, he's Page seventy-four - 1,-113.-. 'QM'-1. in . 45.4 . SEIIIOR HIGH SCH down in Shanghai running six day bicycle races. He wrote me that he met Herbert Leddy on his way down to Siam where he was going to raise peaches." "Think of all the riches there are with some of the '37's. There's Virgin- ia Daniels: she's down in the Congo now, mining diamonds as large as hen's eggs. I'd like to have some of her bank accounts, and she never thought she would even see Africa!" Frank cleared his throat and went on. "Two weeks ago in New York, I ran across Katharine Brown and Gwendolyn Fairchild on Broadway. Tfhey're in partnership now with Miriam Gray on Fifth Avenue where the three are op- erating a successful candy business. The two both said that they have a sweet little shop there on the avenue. While we were talking, the two girls told me about Foster Kirby and Robert Barrett who are running a nut shop on 42nd Street. The boys are exporting now to all parts of the world. One of their favorite mottos is, "Even The Penguins Know Our Products!" "Yes, and there are quite a number of other graduates of '37 in Gotham now. Frank McCarthy and Harry Williams are in the dough business there. Their Crispy, Crunchy, Crackly Bread and Cake Crumbs are sold everywhere. Their company has a large sale around Thanksgiving, When nearly everyone is stuffing turkeys, especially since Paul Avelar has been flooding the market with those huge turkeys he raises on his thousand acre farm in Texas." Frank was interrupted by the sound of music. "Look," cried Irene, running to the window. "It's a parade coming down the street. What a gorgeous costume on Q-l.'., EHST PROVIDENCE 'Wf'gQ- . -. 'v . . , I,- ' -:fs ' the band leader: how clever he is with the baton! Say, don't you recognize him, Frank?" "Fan my brow," Meservey gasped, "It's Bob Dalton throwing that stick around! Boy! It he clever!" Irene chuckled. "But that isn't his regular job," she said. "I-Ie's in the florist business here in town with Thomas McCauley. Next door to their shop Joseph Soito runs an automobile salesroom. There's Joe now: he's over on the other side of the street. Doesn't he look prosperous in that smart coupe?" The music of the parade faded, and the last of the procession passed around the next corner. Irene and Frank re- turned to their chairs. A knock was heard at the door. "Come in," the editor commanded. The previously mentioned oflice boy entered. "Miss Del Rossi," he said, "here are the newest wire photos. We've just re- ceived them along with these new As- sociated Press dispatchesf' I T'he editor took the pictures. For business's sake she had to inspect them. One of the pictures seemed especially in- teresting to her. "Just look at this photo," she said to Meservey, "It's from Providence and these two women contenders for the state outboard motor championship are Marjorie Washburn and Agnes Tull- son! Wouldn't I like to see the finals in that race." "Here's another picture, it's from California. The quintuplets, all grown, are being welcomed to Hollywood by these two screen writers and who do you think those writers are? They're Thelma Smith and Muriel Holden. There's Betty Wilson, another one of our girls who became a star of Holly- . ,,..i.h.. H I 1- 'fc - 1 .- ..gg , SEIIIOR HIGH SCH wood. Don't you see her there to the right of the quintuplets?" "But say," puzzled Meservey, "Has everyone gone out to California?" "Oh, no," Irene answered, "for here's an item from Nome, Alaska. Our old friend, Wilma Wollenberg is re- ported here to have established a very flourishing chain of beauty parlors along the Yukon River. The beauty supply house in Seattle run by Mildred Blomstedt has had difficulty getting Wilma's supplies to her throughout the winter. The trouble's settled now since Julie Court has contracted to fly the supplies up every fortnight." Irene shuffled the sheets again and picked out another item. She read: "Moscow, June 19-UP. Two American Girls, Jennie Di Fonzo and Victoria Desrosiers were taken from Soviet custody today after Chester Gill, American consul had argued their case. The Russian authorities claimed that the two were teaching Russian children the art of Crocheting, an accomplishment the Soviet government considers cap- italistic." Again, a knock was heard on the door. The oflice boy entered. "Three ladies wish to see Miss DelRossi," he said. "All right, boy," she said, "send them in." The boy made an exit. "Miss DelRossi," the spokeswoman of the three said, "perhaps you don't recognize us, but we remember you, we're old classmates of yours." The editor smiled, "Of course I re- member you. You're Lois Goff, Louise Cronin, and Virginia Martin. You must all remember Frank Meservey, don't you? Here he is right in this office visit- ing me." There was excitement in the oflice for Page seventy-Hue EFIST PROVIDENCE 1,.e... tc, ,, 'iG5'5. , . . .wb 4 . ' LII". ' I iflgiti, the next few minutes as acquaintances were renewed and all the old memories were brought to mind again. Finally, Irene broke into the con- fusion by asking, "Could anyone of you tell me what has become of Bernice Brown? I haven't seen her or heard anything about her in years." "Why, Irene," Lois Goff gasped in amazement, "Bernice works in your own newspaper's library and lives in the same apartment house that you live in. Don't tell me you go about a la Garbo with smoked glasses on!" "Don't scold me, Lois," the little editor begged laughingly. I seem to have so much trouble checking up on those living thousands of miles away that I miss those classmates right in If .' SEIIIOR HIGH SCH my own back-yard." u "To square everything, what would you say if I proposed a 'Class of '37' dinner tonight for all those classmates we could get in touch with before to- night?" "Irene," the group answered in chorus, "that would be tops." 'fLet's finish our afternoon by sing- ing a great old song, ' On East Prov- idence,' " Meservey suggested. The singing began with lVleservey's deep bass. "On East Providence, on East Providence," he sang. The others joined him: "Plunge right through that line .... The scene faded.

Hero Bombs burst overhead, lighting the dreary night with a momentary glare: shells screamed across the sky and tore jagged holes in the slimy earth: machine guns rattled persistently, spitting rapid flames in a code that spelled death: rifles barked intermittently through the tempest--it was a night of fiendish ter- ror. A fine rain descended steadily, hour after hour, forming tiny rivers in the mud, drenching lice-infested uniforms, cooling the parched lips of the feverish, bathing the fiery wounds of the dying, soaking the scant rations of the starving. ruining amunition and supplies. Private O'Donnell crawled stealthily onward, following his gasping com- rades. Through the mud and filth they slid, barely escaping the gaping holes, gripping earth that gave no support but sucked them hungrily into its slimy depths. Suddenly they hugged the ground even more closely as a shell screamed through the damp air. There ensued a deafening explosion, and bits of shrapnel flew through the tumul- tuous night. Private O'Donnell's hands dug wildly into the slime, and then, with a muttered groan, he lay still. How long he remained thus he did not know. but when consciousness finally returned, he was aware of a throbbing pain in his left leg. His quivering hand sought the injured member and slid suddenly into a hot and sticky cavity. Horriiied O'Donnell twisted his aching body and discovered that a portion of his leg had been blown away and the shattered bone was exposed to the rain and the mud. With a griefstricken groan he dropped his face to the slime and lay for a moment in trembling silence. He was a cripple! Oh, he had seen Page eighty-six SEIIIUR HIGH SCH a hundreds of maimed men in these last few months, but never had he expected to join their limping ranks. Betty would never marry him now. Betty was a wee bit of a lass with twinkling eyes and fairy grace and an endless love for dancing. How could he hope to win her now that he could never again hold her close to his heart as they swayed in time to soothing music? No beautiful girl wanted to spend her life with a cripple. He was doomed to a lonely existence without the dear rose that had bloomed in his heart through all these dreary months, raising his spirits and bringing welcomed comfort and hope. Well, there was no danger of her being an old maid: there were plenty of other fellows who would be only too glad to take his place in her affections. Especial- ly, there was Jim Cauley. He was a handsome youth, O'Donnell's boyhood chum, but they had become bitterest enemies when petite Betty had appeared upon the scene. Both sought her love, and to both she had always given dearest friendship and no more. Now that he' was a cripple, Jim would be topmost in her affections and eventual winner of her fair hand in a life-long bond of matrimony. , A faint groan recalled O'Donnell tot his senses and he turned stiffly, pain- fully to discover a mud-spattered body beside him. Evidently his other com- panions had hurried off to safety, leav- ing the two men to the mercy of God, believing them to be dead. With a startled gasp, he discovered that it was. the form of Jim Cauley, who lay in feverish unconsciousness. Of all people! A sudden glint shot from the blurred eyes of Private O'Donnell. Jim was bleeding badly. He could leave him here to die in the drizzling rain. Better EHST PROVIDENCE le 5,, Nm, i . 1113, ' 'Q 735121. still, he could crush his skull and end the ebbing life, He had seen too much of brutal murder lately even to shudder at the thought. No one would know that he had done it. No one would even suspect such an action. Then he, Dan O'Donnell, could have Betty. With Jim dead, she would be forced to accept her crippled lover. Oh, but suppose some of those fellows at home had taken his place! Suppose she should consider those skulking cowards above a battling cripple? If anyone must have her except himself, it must be Jim. After all, Jim was the best friend he had ever had. as honest a fellow as ever lived. Yes, he couldn't take any chances: Jim would have to be taken home, somehow. He'd bind the gaping wound, and be- fore long some one would come along and help them to shelter and a hospital. A year later Danny O'Donnell ap- peared in his own home town, hopping stiffly on his one leg, leaning on crutches that shone in the early morning sun- light. Upon the breast of his spotless uniform glittered a medal, a trophy awarded for exceptional valor in saving the life of a buddy at the risk of his own life and while suffering from his own maimed body. Danny had wanted to tell them the truth, to explain that he was no hero, that he had remained beside his friend only because he was too weak to move, and because he loved a girl so much that he could not bear the thought of having her marry anyone except his ex-friend or himself. He wanted to tell them that he had wanted to kill Jim and would have done so if it were not for Betty. They extolled his great bravery and fearlessness in remaining beside his com- panion, in binding the other's wound instead of his own, in dragging the un- SBHIOR HIGH S conscious form through the mud and filth to an ally trench and insisting that his friend be given immediate medical treatment instead of begging them to save his own leg. They did not realize that he had been quaking with fear, writhing with pain, praying, cursing. sobbing. They exclaimed about his love for fellow men, when he had really been tempted to end Jim's life. They con- gratulated him upon his boundless love of country, when, in reality, it was Betty and not the United States for whom he had fought. They would not listen to his protestations, but com- mended his extreme modesty. Through the crowd that had gathered to meet him at the station, ran a beau- tiful girl, her chestnut locks blowing in the warm breeze. At sight of her a bright crimson spread across Danny's shining countenance, and he hopped eagerly toward her. ln a moment her arms were about his neck. "We've read all about your bravery in the papers," she told him as they rode homeward. "You're such a hero!" He grinned and blushed. "Honest, Betty, I-" he began, but she placed a small white hand upon his protesting lips. "You needn't be so modest," she smiled sweetly. "I always knew you'd do something great." Danny studied the toe of his one shoe for a moment, and then stammered, "I suppose you couldn't marry a-a crip- ple, could you Betty?" She snuggled closer against his arm. "Not a cowardly cripple," she mur- mured softly. "but a cripple who risked his life for a buddy. It was so noble of you to forget your old feud and forget me and think only of his life and our country, Danny. I'd be proud to marry such a hero." Page eighty-seven CH EHST PROVIDENCE '15 if? 0,4 I.. - 4 :,-. uh!- '.' gafifta, ' - '.'.z'c,, .- Private O'Donnell grinned happily. After all, why should he spoil every- thing by telling the truth? To all the world, Jim Cauley included, he was a hero. Jim had even told him that he would never again attempt to win Bet- ty from the friend who had saved his life. Every one loved him for his deceit. Suddenly Dan wondered how many nationally adored martyrs from time immemorial were as unworthy of praise as he, and he chuckled as he held the beautiful girl in his arms.

Marsden, '37 --1-ooo-- J m-zgl e Drums Tom Verland, who had been my room mate for four years at Yale, and I had set out from Ashur on the wes- tern coast of Africa two weeks before with our guide, a native African named Page eighty-eight 4 , ,- L- . , -vi-'.'. 'gffnm v ' 'ip - SEIIIOR HIGH SCH Tashi. The object of our trek through the African Jungle was to bring back, if possible, to the New York Botanical Museum the "orchis luminaritis" a rare species of orchid brought only once be- fore to America. This rare flower's dis- tinguishing proberty was its ability to blossom only in the light of the moon. So far our search had been rewarded only by failure. Late that Monday afternoon we passed the Trefian Falls, a large cataract which ended in a swirling rocky pool at it's foot. We planned to make camp at the edge of the native village nearby. As we stopped to admire the awesome spectacle, in some ways more beautiful than our own Niagara Falls, Tashi told us the legend of the falls. It was be- lieved that the Goddess Trefa dwelt in base of the falls. In her wrath, every hun- the pool at the order to appease dred years when the moon was high in the heavens, a human sacrifice was offered to her. Tom winked at me as if to say, "What bosh these natives believe." We proceeded along the edge of the village looking for a suitable camping site. We passed a curious sort of well which Tashi told us was where the oil was kept that was part of the ancient tradition. After the victim was thrown into the pool, the burning oil was poured onto the water. I shivered slightly, but Tom only laughed. We set up camp and for a while were busy cooking supper. But then the drums started. The night air was athrob with the pulsating rhythm of the jungle drums. Tashi, who under- stood the weird language of the tom- toms, in a low frightened voice told us that tonight was the night which came but once in a hundred years. Torches could be seen weaving their EHST PROVIDENCE 91 '-'14 s'-- .,,., f.t.a, .,, ..,. , Se : .- 341. .-f..L'1. 5 . way to the Trefian Falls: soon the en- tire village was emptied. A feeling of supressed excitement filled the air, and when Tom suggested that we watch the ceremony, I agreed with alacrity, Tashi begged us not to go, but his warning fell on deaf ears. We circled around the mud and straw huts of the village and were soon at the top of the water fall. Below us the boom of the drums echoed in our ears above the roar of the falling water while the natives chanted and danced about the luckless victim in their midst. We watched the proceedings through our Held glasses with interest and curiosity. It seemed incredible that in a few mo- ments that young boy would be thrown into the whirlpool. "It won't be long now," murmured Tom. "Look, the moon's just about to rise." True enough, the big round reddish moon was rising slowly above the hor- izon. As the natives beheld this, the cries became louder and shriller. They began to dance to a faster tempo. As I watched some of the men prepare the burning oil, Tom gave a start and handed the glasses to me with a terse command to look where he was point- ing. There in a crevice, by the light of the torches, in a rocky crevice in the rocky side of the pool, just above the water, a white petaled flower was slow- ly unfolding as the rays of the moon struck it. I remained as if paralyzed, fascinated by the delicate specimen for which we had searced so long. But the horrible thought came to me: the burn- ing oil which they were to pour into the pool would submerge the orchid beneath it. "Our only chance is to dis- tract them from the ceremony." "Yes," I said with a touch of sar- J casm, "I realize that: but how can we?" After a moment of thought I said, "Why not fire a couple of shots back in the village? They'll leave to find out what's the matter." But as we turned to watch the Africans we realized that that plan would never work. They were aroused to such a mad frenzy by now that they would never leave for that. "The only thing to do." Tom said wearily, "is to set the whole village on fire." "That's it," I cried. "Let's set that thicket of gunchi trees on fire with the oil that we saw in that old well. There's probably some left." It was our only chance and we took it. We figured that the natives would know that unless the fire were put out at once it would spread to their huts. We had to work fast for the time was growing short, and it would soon be too late. Tom set off to fire the grove while I began to lower myself over the rocks as near as I dared to the group below. After several minutes of terrible sus- pense the sky brightened in a burst of flame. A shout went up below me: the na- tives stood horror struck: then they be- gan to jabber excitedly in their strange dialect. Then as we had hoped and prayed they would, they all ran up to the village to save their homes. I made my way carefully but quickly to the water fall and with deft move- ments transplanted the beautiful orchid into the jar which I always carried with me in case I should discover it. I scram- bled quickly to the head of the cataract again. The fire was almost out, but I had to wait what seemed an eternity for Tom who finally appeared with Tashi Page eighty-nine IIIOR HIGH CH enst Pnovlnsnce ,HZ ue.: .-'gh , - :':.fgca, Ai- -71? ' and our things. Without wasting any time we set out on our way follow- ing close to the river. Behind us the drums began to beat again. They throbbed the message which Tashi tran- slated to mean that they believed that the Goddess Trefa herself was displeased with the sacrifice and had caused the fire. The ceremony must then be post- poned for another hundred years. We reached civilization two days later with our specimen intact, but the story of its capture remained unbe- lieved. Ella Childs, '3 7 --i-ooo-i- Too Faithful Jeff Willard, hunter, sportsman, and dog fancier, tilted back in his chair, lit his pipe, and then laughed derisively. "Do ya mean to tell me," he said with contempt, "that that that pup will make a true point and hold it whilel call to him?" The person thus addressed was Jim Hebert, another Sportsman, and Jeff's special crony. Tlhe object of ridicule was a young and awkward looking bird dog, named Prince, which Jim had just pur- chased. The two men were engaged in an argument involving the merits of the young pointer which was capering about at their feet, totally unconscious of the friendly strife that he was causing. Jim regarded the dog thoughtfully for a moment and then replied, "I not only think he'll do it, but I am willing to try it right now. Want to make any bets on the results?" "Five bucks," shot back Jeff. "You're on," snapped Jim." Get yer hat an' come with me. There's a covey of quail been hanging out down near the railroad tracks. We can try there first." Page ninety 1 '.' ' -55.4, SENIOR HIGH SCH Without further ado the two men set out, calling the dog after them. Prince enjoyed the sport very much, first trailing far behind, then dashing past the men with bounding leaps in search of new adventures. Once a startled rabbit scampered away at their approach, but Prince paid no attention to it. This further aroused Jim's en- thusiasm. "You see." he cried, 'AI told you he was a good dog. Don't ever bother chasin' him." They finally reached the tracks and then proceeded more quietly, allowing the pointer to run ahead of them. Prince seemed to realize that something was brewing and trotted along cautiously sniffing at each clump of shrubs and con- tinually crossing the tracks. Suddenly while directly between the rails about fifty yards ahead of the men, he stopped short, and remained standing stilfly with his nose pointing directly towards a bush at the side of the rails. With his tail straight behind him and one foreleg held off the ground he presented a pretty picture. "There, look," cried Jim. "A per- fect point. Now try to call him away." "Here, Prince! Come, Prince!" shouted Jeff. He whistled and called for nearly a minute but without result. The only response from the dog was a disturbed twitching of the tail. "Well, what do ya think of the dog, now?" said Jim with a trace of pride in his voice. At that moment a train whistle sounded in the distance, an- nouncing the approach of the express. "Ahl" cried Jeff, jokingly, 'lhere comes something that will break that point." Jim did not reply, but a worried frown appeared on his face. The speed- Q-1'- EHST PROVIDENCE 'flie- 'I --lg 't' 315521, .-.'.rz. t . .-.L-.5-2. ing train flashed into view around the bend and bore down upon them. .Iim's expression changed to one of dismay, and with loud shouts he began running towards his dog. In spite of his mas- ter's pleading shouts Prince remained rigid in the center of the tracks, ignor- ing his approaching destruction. Jim suddenly stopped short, picked up a stone, and hurled it at the clump of bushes concealing the quail. The frightened birds took to wing and soared away, but it was too late. Although Prince gave a sharp bark and started to spring in pursuit, the train was upon him and he was crushed beneath the huge churning wheels. Prince had carried out his master's boasts: he had remained true to his bird-hunting instincts, but his faith- fulness had cost him his life.

N,-fziztgz g SE-IIIIOR HIGH SCH School Play The school play "Dulcy" was pre- sented on two evenings, December l8 and l9, before enthusiastic audiences. The play, which is a gay and satir- ical comedy, is full of laughs that the audiences could not help enjoying. Lois Lindblom, in the title role, performed with a natural charm, while succeeding in making the audience feel extremely sorry for her husband, portrayed by Harry Peckham, who bravely carried on in spite of Dulcy's blunders. Hoping to advance her husbands financial suc- cess, she invited to their home a well known financier, Arthur Ring, who hlled his part as an irritable business man in a creditable manner. Compli- cations began to arise when Dulcy at- tempted to make a match between Rings daughter. Barbara Porter, a young girl with romantic tendencies, and Hugh Swan. a scenario writer, who com- pletely fascinated the women but con- stantly bored the men. Ray Blomstedt, as Dulcy's brother, remained thoroughly unperturbed as the farce unravelled, now and then thrusting a sarcastic note into the conversation. Elizabeth Colt. as the financiers stylish young wife, carried on a flirtation, enjoyed by Dulcy, with Leo Tatro who played the part of a social celebrity and an accomplished pianist. He later was disclosed by his cousin, Ellsworth Goff, to be mentally unbalanced and to be using a fictitious name, John Benjamin, as a breezy young advertising agent, offered more humor to the play while Frank Mc- Carty, as Dulcy's butler and a paroled convict. increased the interest of the audience. To Miss Alden praise should be given for turning out such successful pro- duction with a cast of eleven amateur actors who were for the first time ap- pearing in a high school play.

I I I Y I I Contest Play "The Tie That Binds," the East Providence entry in the state one-act play festival, was the kind of production for which East Providence is noted and of which we are proud. Every one of the five members of the cast gave interpretations which were ad- mirable for sharpness, realistic detail, and their polished manner. Barbara Bristol's portrayal of Mrs. Mills, a stern, but lovable, mountain woman, was ex- cellent and at all times satisfying. Hu- mor was added when she very ably smoked a corn-cob pipe! Her son, Jeb, a young lad longing for more schooling, was played most ably by Robert Ten- nant. His curiosity concerning his sis- ter's baby was really enjoyable. Barbara Porter's performance as Naomi Mills Scott, the eldest of the Mills children, a girl who had gone to the city and mar- ried. was admirable. Her desire to re- Page ninety-six gain her mother's affection was ex- pressed very well both in words and action. Ruth Marsden in the part of Judy, the young sister, merited high praise for the excellence of her lines and pantomine. Raymond Vanslette's ap- titude for character parts was proved in his interpretation of Ben Webb, a drunken mountaineer, a former suitor of Naomi's. The whole performance was- characterized by a totality of effect that was most pleasing. Richard Hauck and Ellsworth Goff, as stage managers, deserve commendation for their excellent work in gathering and making properties for the cabin interior. The cast experienced a feeling of con- tentment at the wholehearted support of old East Providence, and they feel that they have participated in a worth- while and highly enjoyable venture in-- to the world of dramatics. . .W-..

SENIOR HIGH SCH Radio Plays The School Series of Radio Plays is completing its second year and has added countless listeners to its performances. This year eight plays are being presented by each of four schools, not the least of which is our own East Providence. We have been eminently successful in our eight selections, and listeners have ob- served that our productions are maturely and capably done. The players were fortunate in having Miss Enos in a directing capacity this year, as Miss Al- den was unable to coach because of her other school dramatics. Seven plays have been dramatized to date: they are in order of presentation: "Edgar Allen Poe," "Christmas at Pine Gorge," "Roderick Last of the Gothic Kings," "Sutters Gold," "Acres of Diamonds," "The Arch Traitor of the Revolution," and "The Sage of Cathay." The mem- bers of the casts for these plays have been much the same with a few var- iations. Persons who most often had leads were Lois Lindblom, Robert Ten- nant, Harry Peckham, Frank Saraceno, and Vincent Morvillo. The characters in the prologue and epilogue of these plays were played by the same actors throughout. John Benjamin, who some- times doubled and played a part in the play, was our Uncle Dan: Charles A1- drich, our Billy: and Marion McCon- nell, our Anna May. Clinton Sellew, Virginia Prust, and Paul Chappelle also made some very fine portrayals, Radio plays are very interesting both to lis- tener and player: and they are not with- out their educational merits.

Faculty Play This year the faculties of the Junior and Senior High Schools presented "Death Takes a Holiday" as their Fourth Annual dramatic production. The play was Written in Spanish by Cascelles and translated by Walter Fer- ris. The original production appeared on Broadway in 1929 with Basil Rath- bone in the lead. Since then it has been successfully produced in the motion pic- tures, in the Little Theatres, and over the air. The play is noteworthy both for its significant philosophical ideas and for the unusual story which it depicts. Mr. Pass in the role of the Shadow and later as Prince Serki gave an un- usually fine performance. Because of a splendid speaking voice, an intelligent interpretation of the part, and skillful acting in the dramatic scenes all who Page ninety-eight saw the play were loud in the praise of Mr. Pass's work. Mr. Goodwin han- dled the important and very difficult role of Duke Lambert most effectively. Mr. Good was convincing as the aged Baron and Miss Enos made a charming Grazia. The work of the supporting cast was uniformly good. Special credit must be given for the work done by Phillip Painchaud, Joseph McQuade, and Harry Peckham for cre- ating with the help of Miss Gould prob- ably one of the most beautiful sets ever seen in an amateur play. The set was enhanced by skillful lighting effects un- der the direction of Mr. Anthony Sul- livan. Again the Faculty and Mr. Bates, the director, are to be congratulated for an outstanding presentation, HOU EI-IST PROVIDENCE I?9QQi:x.-. Er 4, .'..,1 . . -.-1, , I-U .- ,KJ .

Under the direction of the librarian, they serve the school and library in many ways. This year the club consisted of twenty-one members, and the officers were as follows: Pres- ident, Ella Childs: Secretary, Pearl White: Treasurer, Helen Henderson. The duties of each member are varied. They include charging and discharging books and magazines, typing, repairing books and magazines, reporting on a specific magazine, and making a project book. Projects concerning art, music, travel. collegeibuildings. and school ac- tivities are only a few of the interesting books made by members. In addition to our regular duties we have many social activities throughout the year. In December members of the Auxiliary brought food for a Christ- mas basket which was taken to a home suggested by the Distric Nursing As- sociation. At the school play, HDulcy," candy was sold to enable us to publish "The Bookworm," our annual publication of book reviews, activities, stories, and poems written by the members. This year Ruth Marsden was chairman of the Bookworm Committee, assisted by Emily Cwreene, Virginia Costa, Thelma Smith, and Sybil Titus. ln February we held a party in honor of St. Valentines Day in the library. Valentines were exchanged and games were played after which refreshments were served. In May our annual Library Day and tea for the faculty was held. At that time we displayed new books, project books, and other interesting library material. Page ninety-nine CH - 1 I g W M WHH H MWUR A ,N is-1 g ,.

The Informer Although the school newspaper staff is one of the youngest organizations in our school, it is rapidly becoming one in which many students are taking an active interest. The "Informer" was started in May, 1936, by members of the Senior Class and Miss Helen Mulvey of the faculty, for the purpose of having the students acquaint themselves with 'the various school activities. Since last May, the paper has im- proved in many respects. It was decided that it should be issued bi-weekly and that each edition should have a special section featuring some topic such as science, poetry, music, social studies, and literature. In this way students who were not regular members of the staff were given an opportunity to contribute original stories, book reviews, poems, and concert reviews. The best copy of the year was the Christmas edition. It was made in mag- azine form with green covers, and it was printed in green and red ink. It con- tained, besides the general news, a Christmas story by Barbara E. Bristol and poems by Cora Phillips with il- lustrations by the staff artists. The staff wishes to compliment the student body for its support in con- tributing and buying the paper. We feel that with this continued cooperation our paper will soon be comparable with other papers in our vicinity.

HIGH SCHOOI The Orchestra This year the orchestra has approx- imately forty members. Eour periods a week are devoted to full orchestra re- hearsals. There are other periods which are devoted to giving orchestra members individual training. This year the orchestra has been very busy. Early in the fall it participated in an open air concert given in the rec- reation field as part of the Tercentenary Celebration. The honor of being in- vited to play at the Teachers' Institute was bestowed on our orchestra in October. At the school play everyone enjoyed the gay melodies of "Maytime," "Show Boat," and a cornet solo by Arthur Adams, "The Sweetest Story Ever Told." The orchestra also played Page one hundred-two for Parent Teacher meetings. An assem- bly program was presented by the or- chestra, members of the orchestra per- forming under "The music department presents." At the New England Music Festival held in Hyannis, Massachusetts, on March 10 to 13, the East Providence High School orchestra was represented by Helen Gray, Irene DelRossi, Edna Higgins, Ruth Reynolds, and Theresa DelRossi. A concert was presented this spring with Elizabeth Chace as soloist. The orchestra also played on Class Day and for graduation as usual. This year's concert master and librarian were Helen Gray and Audrey Case respective- ly. EHST PROVIDENCE ' 'Hi ww- . V ' 1 ' 55, . EIA . SEIIIUR HIGH S The Band Three years have passed since Mr. Farnum came to East Providence to di- rect the band. In those three years our band has advanced from a fifteen piece band to its present rating of fifty pieces. During the past year the band went into a new field of band work-namely, drilling. Last fall the band started by forming letters at the football games. Early in March the band began to prac- tice a series of complicated drills under the direction of Mr. Farnum and Robert Dalton. The drills were entirely dif- ferent from those done by other bands in this part of the country. Our band executed them so well that we were ac- claimed the best drilling band at the Rhode Island Music Festival at New- port on April 24. The annual concert was presented on April 30 with Alfred Zambarano, bar- itone horn soloist, as guest artist. Ten members of the band were se' lected to play in the All-New England Festival Band at Hyannis, Massachusetts in March. This just doubled the num- ber from East Providence that attended the year before at Springfield, Mass- achusetts. The band has been selected to play at the opening of the Teachers' Institute next fall in Providence. The band ofiicers for this year were Director ......,.....,.....,,... Stephen E.

SEIIIUR HIGH SCH Girl Reserves This year has been one of the most eventful ones in the history of Girl Re- serves, for Miss Hazel Gilbert, who has been our very capable advisor for seven years, found it necessary to resign. The girls regretted that Miss Gilbert had to leave as she was indeed a splendid ad- visor and much appreciated by all the girls. lt took several weeks for us to find a new advisor, but we discovered a new teacher, Miss Beatrice Hall, whom we soon adopted. Miss Hall has proved a good choice, for she is whole-heartedly interested in the club and has done much to help it. We have done many interest- ing things under her leadership and with the following oflicers: President, Ruth Page one hundred-four Barney: Vice President, Muriel Holden: Secretary, Jessie Hunt: Treasurer, Ruth- Halton. In December the girls presented their annual Christmas party at the Home for Aged Ladies. In February the clud held a dance at the Masonic Tem- ple. In March four delegates, Shirley Allen, Barbara Gardner, Jessie Hunt, and Virginia Pratt, Miss Hall, and Ruth Barney went to the annual Mid-Winter Conference at Brockton, Massachusetts. In June the girls spent a weekend at Sea- side Camp, Jamestown. We have also had many speakers and socials at the Y. W. C. A. and have made interesting trips to various places of business in or around Providence. C senion HIGH s CH00 H LETICS grmnpm. M- 7--m..1 EHST PROVlDEHCE "- A . hrs.. 4.41,-.

SENIOR HIGH S S2 I Football This year's Townie Eleven had a poor season as far as victories were con- cerned but played a brand of football which caused opponents plenty of trouble and produced low scores. The record comes far from doing justice to the determined group of plucky athletes who represented our school on the grid- iron. Those who witnessed the home games will agree with the above state- ment, ln only one game, the contest with Cranston, were the boys outplayed. The other games were all close and hard fought with East Providence often hav- ing the edge in all departments except scoring. The lone victory of the season came at the expense of Woonsocket in a non- league encounter early in the season. As usual the outstanding game was the Turkey Day battle at La Salle Field. The boys turned in a very creditable per- formance and although considerably outclassed by the Class A champions, managed to stay within striking dis- tance of victory until the final period. A second period touchdown by East Providence gave La Salle good cause for worry. However, a touchdown late in the Hnal period clinched the game for the Maroons at 18-6. While the team as a whole played uniformly well, the following deserve mention: Capt. Tracy for his able leadership, Meservey, Gardner, Pytlo- wana, and Yeaw for mention on the 1936 All Rhode Island School team. Next year the squad will take the field led by Captain Dick Anthony.

The team led by Captain Johnson, whose excellent net tending played a major part in all victories, held down a position in the first division un- til the last game of the season. At that time a loss to the Flying Frenchmen from Mt. St. Charles put us out of the running. Although a scoring punch was some- times lacking, the boys played great de- Page one hundred -eight fensive hockey in scoring several shut- outs. Ken Johnson's air-tight goal tend- ing won for him the honorary Cap- taincy of the All-State hockey team. The outstanding players in the forward line were Drayton, Blomstedt, Perreault. and Reilly, While Gardner and Reney in the defense staved off many drives at our goal. Next year's team captained by Dick Drayton should be potentially strong, for many players with one season's ex- perience are returning. H Mlm EHST PROVIDENCE Ni..- ' 'ill l iii.-5 gs!

"5ff"'a SEIIIOR HIGHS i Basketball This year's edition of the East Prov- idence basketball team went through a long sixteen game schedule, winning seven and losing nine to finish in a three-way tie for fifth place in the class A division. The record as shown on paper does not, however, give the team its deserved credit, for the boys played an excellent brand of basketball and caused the teams higher in standing plenty of trouble. Most of the nine de- feats were close, hard fought games un- decided until the last period. The team played its best basketball of the season in two non-league games, one with St. Raphael, Class B champion, and the other with the Brown Fresh- men. Both games were won by low scores. In the Brown game the boys displayed an air-tight defence that was a pleasure to watch. The most exciting game was without a doubt the contest with De La Salle at Newport. After thirty-two minutes of hectic basketball, featured by good de- fensive play by both teams, East Prov- idence edged out the defending champ- ions 19-17. Individual praise is due the follow- ing who played good basketball all sea- son and were the high scorers of the team: Captain Tracy, Donahue, Ed- monds, Grocer, Swanson, and Yeaw. The other letter men were Gennari, Moreira, and Varnum. Next year's prospects are bright, for live regulars will return led by Cap- tain-elect Vin Donahue and reinforced by several promising jayvees who showed excellent wares this past season.

Coach Goodwin was faced with the task of molding his team about the few available veterans, andlhe has per- formed an excellent job. With an eye to the future he has fitted many soph- omore athletes into the present machine. This policy of building should pay div- idends in the form of future Stars. Page one hundred-ten Captain Russ Baptiste and his mates have participated in all of the major state schoolboy meets and have always succeeded in winning points. At the annual Relay Carnival they finished fourth. As many of the members of the pre- sent team have another year in high school the next squad will bear watch- mg. I EHST PROVIDENCE ws.. I 'Hi 511 . .,:3j:.j:, ' sri .' 4 5, . H.: . SEIIIUR HIGH SC Baseball At the time of writing, our baseball team has fared rather badly, losing all of its first three league games. How- ever, except for the Central contest, the boys have played heads up ball and have kept the results in doubt until the final out was made. Prom these early per- formances it is evident that the team has what it takes to make a winner, and it is bound to turn in several victories be- fore the season ends. Although there now does not seem to be much chance of winning the pennant, the boys are bound to spring some upsets on a few of the topnotchers in the second round -of the schedule. While several of last year's team re- turned, Coach Lally was faced with the problem of filling the shoes of Walter Mulvaney at second and Eddie Casey on the mound, two sizeable tasks in them- selves. To date Captain Tommy Nelen has been the sparkplug of the infield, with Ray Edmonds and Charlie Williams al- ternating on the pitching assignments. Rip Comandich seems to be a permanent fixture at First, with Terry Reilly doing regular duty on the keystone sack. In the outfield Rogers and Moreira have been the regulars. The other positions have undergone frequent changes too numerous to mention, Page one hundred-eleven H El-IST PROVIDENCE iq .Tl " "' 'fr sen 2' ' .- 1" ' -"7'."'.:Tx. . --1-., i:i .' Fencing This year's fencing team has again displayed that prowess that has always been characteristic of East Providence foilsmen. The team by defeating all comers successfully defended the state championship and won the Stone Tro- phy for the second successive year. The fencers have to win this Trophy but Page one hundred- twelve once more, and it will remain per-- manently in the possession of our high school. Harry Peckham, the outstanding member of the team, was awarded the individual fencing title of Rhode Island. This is the third time that a member of our school has won this title.

Vic- tories were at the expense of Moses Brown, Country Day, Cranston, and St. George: while defeats were suffered at the hands of Central and Hope. In the Annual Brown Interscholastic match Silva won the State Champion- ship in the 118 pound class. Sullivan and Flint reached the finals in their re- spective classes but then were eliminated. With many of this year's veterans re- turning, the prospects for the coming season are exceedingly bright.

Its purpose is to promote greater active interest in girls' sports. This year, besides the sports program, parties were given on different occasions. The girls were the guests of the Crans- ton Girls' Leaders Corps one afternoon. They played games and had an enjoy- able time practicing on Cranston's new apparatus. ln return the Girls' Athletic Asso- ciation invited the Leaders Corps here in April, and a fine schedule of games was planned for them.

From the beginning the deter- mined sophomore B's won straight vic- tories. The other classes had several good teams, but none of them was able to stand against the splendid team work and strong playing of the team which finally won the championship. The senior B team placed next to the sophomore B's in the number of games won. The best game of the season was between the senior A's and senior B's. The teams were evenly matched, and throughout most of the game the score was tied. In the last quarter the score was 14-I2 for the senior B team. Time had been called, but the senior A's were given the opportunity to score and tie on a free throw. 'lihe senior A forward was unable to make the basket and the game ended with the senior B's vic- torious. The entire tournament was interest- ing and exciting, and for the first time in many years, a sophomore B team ended the season undefeated, to win the championship. Page one hundred fifteen H east Pnovnnsnce i . gn-- .'?:j,,1' my g 2:4 SENIOR HIGH SC 1 Fencing It was in Italy in the sixteenth cen- tury that the skillful use of the small sword first became common. The art spread to Spain and then to France, where, on account of the prevalence of dueling, it was brought to a high de- gree of development. In the fencing schools the instrument adopted for ex- ercise is called a foil: it has a guard of metal or leather between the handle and blade, which is made of pliant steel, and has a button at the end in place of a point. During the last two years, fencing for girls has been introduced into East Providence High School. Harry Peck- Page one hundred sixteen ham and Russell Green are the instruct- ors of the fencing class which meets every Thursday after school. There are about seventy-Eve girls in the class. Manager, Theresa Andrews, and Assis- tant Manager, Althea Mair, have done much to make the fencing classes a suc- cess. Because it takes several years for one to become a successful fencer, girls who wish to be on the fencing team are urged to begin their practicing in their soph- omore year. It is hoped that a fencing team may be formed at the East Prov- idence High School in the near future.
