XIV THOMPSONVILLE, CONN., JUNE 1926 NO. 6 ADDRESS OF WELCOME By Clyde Terwilliger Parents and Friends : As president of the Class of 1926 I extend to you all a hearty welcome, and I wish to express our appreciation of the interest you have taken in us during our stay in Enfield High School. We, the Class of 1926, make our entrance tonight upon Com- mencement Week, the climax of our happy stay here, with how- ever one regret, that the man who made possible this wonderful addition to the town, is not here to see the first result of his work. We are, indeed, a thankful class, for we have had the privilege this last year of first using this new building; this building which with all its conveniences and perfections has made us more able to help us in our work and to prepare us for the continuation of our careers with the dignity and honor befitting a graduate of Enfield High School. And so we go out, determined to live according to the wonder- ful example given us by Dr. Alcorn in his own private life and in his kind work. Now, in behalf of the Class of 1926 I welcome you all to these exercises and to the exercises following this week. CLASS HISTORY By Dorothy Parker In the fall of 1922 the Class of 1926 entered the Enfield High School as Freshmen, with a total membership of one hundred and forty-four. By the end of the school year we had but seventy-nine of our class left with us. Several had to leave an account of illness and others because of failure in their courses. Of the eighty-five who left, there were some who went to work, and some changed residence. Those that went to work found that money appealed to them then much more than education. 12 THE ENFIELD ECHO There were two courses of study offered to us, the Academic and the Vocational. The larger portion of the class selected the Vocational. Many of us entered the Enfield High with the idea of preparing ourselves for entrance into higher institutions of learn- ing upon the completion of our high school career. In our Freshman year we warmly welcomed twenty students from Somers, two from Somersville, twenty-seven from Hazard- ville, eighty-four from Thompsonville, fourteen from Enfield, five from Warehouse Point, and six from Sufheld and elsewhere. During that year Haskell Lord, Robert Campbell, Robert Gray, Alfred Cote, Bertha Longmore, Edith Bower, and a few others left the class. The annual Prize Speaking Contest took place in the month of March. Miss Alice Lynch speaking on ‘ ' Manners in SchooF’, and Miss Parker on “Up the Mazaruni for Diamonds” were the two representing the Freshman Class. The Prize Speech was won by Peter Crombie, a Senior at that time. We also had a debating society of great interest under the supervision of our President, Stanley Burgess. On June 21st, 1923, we bid farewell to both Mrs. Johnston and Mr. Smith, two of our well-liked teachers. On the 7th of September, 1923, with our few remaining mem- bers we found ourselves seated in Rooms 2, 4, 5, and 7, within the portals of the old Enfield High. We were feeling a little bit higher in our ways and manners this year, for no longer were we to be looked upon as foolish, baby Freshmen. During the month of October we held a class meeting, our President being Theodore Sperry, and our Vice-President, Sumner Adams. Every other week we held our debating society, and the alternate weeks we had Chorus, under the supervision of Mr. King, Mrs. Lehman being our pianist for the first half of the year, and Miss Streeter, her successor, for the remaining half. In this same year the annual Prize Speaking Contest was held in April, Miss Harriet Smith speaking on “The Telephone”, Miss Barbara Smith on “Colts’ Woolen Wear Industry,” and Miss Dor- othy Parker on the subject of “Home.” This time two Juniors were the victors. On June 25th, 1924, we bid farewell to another class, and sent them out into the wide world with all our best hopes and wishes. But aside from this great sorrow we were forced to bid farewell also to some of our fine teachers whom we had already added to our line of friends and acquaintances. They were Miss Doane, Miss Moulton, Mr. Davis, and Mr. Jenkins. Romping back to school as Juniors in the fall of 1924, we found ourselves situated in those spacious seats occupying the front of Room 1, in the building now known as “Old Enfield High.” Of course we were the best class of Juniors that entered or ever will THE ENFIELD ECHO 13 enter Enfield High. Never did we whisper without permission, or throw notes; such things as these were unheard of in our class of goody-goody boys and girls. In the play called “Come Out of the Kitchen” Miss Florine Allen, Miss Agnes Quinn, and Laurence Malley, all Juniors, were a decided success through their clever acting. Early in April, 1925, Miss Dorothy Parker, a member of the Junior Class, represented Enfield High at the County Oratorical Contest held in Hartford, and was awarded Honorable Mention. On April 24th the best Junior Prom ever held, was given by us. On June 5th, our first issue of the Echo was produced, and it was so conspicuously successful and interesting that we heard the people on the street corners talk of our ability. Alas! our Senior year had come. We did not return, though, to Old Enfield, but instead to this beautiful new structure. For a while we were puzzled as to where we should go, but after a few days, we brilliant Seniors settled down to labor, leaving the little Freshmen to wander aimlessly here and there, uncertain as to where they should go. Of course it usually takes Freshmen a long time to learn anything, although the Class of ’26 never had to pass through that stage. We wish to mention also how successful the Enfield Echo was under its efficient Editors, the Misses Barbara Smith, Dorothy Parker, Eleanor Joslin, Ruth Hurd, Helen Colby, aud our Business Manager, Albert Burbank. On November 27, a sad thing struck us and everyone in Thompsonville. It was the loss of our dear friend. Dr. Thomas G. Alcorn. In the month of December, the jazzy orchestra, the “Snappy Six”, furnished music for our Senior Prom which, like our wonder- ful Junior Prom, proved very successful. During all our other activities our boys were doing their bit in athletics. Our stars were Malley, in basketball, football, and baseball; Terwilliger in baseball; Niemic in baseball and basket- ball; Kaminsky, Bigos, and Smith were also stars in athletics. Bigos and Marinaccio did their bit in track. Again came another lapse of events until on March 23rd we popped up again with the Prize Speaking Contest. The Senior contestants were Miss Gardner, speaking on “Borgia”, Woodward on “Forestry”, Marie Collins on the “North American Indian”, and Miss Parker on Dr. Alcorn. Miss Parker won second prize. On April 9th the Senior play of “Bab” shone forth in all its glory, with its new sets in the new High School. There could be no better actors than the ones we had in the Senior play. Miss Plamondon, our leading lady, won the hearts of her audience, while Miss Harriet Smith and Miss Blanche Nackenson, Robert Gal- 14 THE ENFIELD ECHO braith, and Stanley Bigos were close seconds in popularity. Could another Senior Class do better? Thus old Father Time dragged on till May 14th, when the Prize Speaking Debate was given. The topic for debate was : Re- solved, That the President should be elected by the direct vote of the people. After a long and exciting debate the judges decided in favor of Miss Rebecca Gager, a Senior on the affirmative side. Last but not least of our activities came the Glee Club Concert. That, as everything else we took part in, was successful. Surely, we made an impression on the minds of the undergraduates. Thus we arrive at the conclusion of the history of the Class of 1926. When we part from these walls of Enfield High on our journey of life may the achievements of our future be as successful and renowned as those of our past! CLASS PROPHECY By Sumner Adams, Edna Plamondon, Morris Sullivan and Ruth Hurd Introduction Curtain drawn while class sings Enfield School Song. At the close of the song Adams jumps u ous way exclaims, “Sh! Sh! I ha hovering near. If they are, will I Answers from group, “Yes, hands three times. With a flash of the brightest lightning and a clap of most terrifying thunder, an odd figure is seen coming, bent over, bowed with age, mutter- ing. (Morris Sullivan) “From the icy North I come Land of snow and night Land of devastation and Hunger, Death, and Fight. Who will dare deny me here Access to the place? Brightly flash yon lightning bold. Roar yon thunder, roar He who stops me in my course. He will live no more. (Intense flashes of lightning and heavy rolls of thunder. South witch appears.) Sister, do I see you With my ancient eyes Hail, my sister of the South, Hail, my warlock prize!” very quickly and in a mysteri- a premonition that spirits are call them to give our prophecy?’’ Let’s!” Adams then claps his South who has advanced to greet him stops and speaks as he approaches. She is brighter in coloring and is dressed to represent that section of the world around the equator. (Edna Plamondon) “From the jungles of Equator To this pleasing fertile land. Rouse, thou, brother, Here’s our meeting. Let us round the cauldron whirl Here concoct in flame and fancy Magic art for boy and girl. Hover closely. Growl and scream. Bring the long unearthly dream. Spirits hence and us attend.” West advances. She is dressed in a lighter color, to represent that section of the country around the desert. THE ENFIELD ECHO 15 (Ruth Hurd) “Stop! These horrid imprecations, Are not suitable for you Witches, have you lost your senses? Would you all your rites eschew? Hold, avaunt, forbear thy whirl- ing. Dervishes, thou shall not be Till thou greet the recognition Of the majesty of me.” (Morris Sullivan) “Sister, thou art noisy haggart Who are thou, what wouldst thou try?” (Edna Planiondon) “Dost thou hold thou art a won- der? Would thou powers of spirits vie?” (Ruth Hurd) “Stop! your incantations Futile are and heedless, aye To continue them is foolish, Follow me or thou will die. Listen to my own concoction, I a magic rite have known. Draw thou closer, not a sound To thee Fll unfold A mystery of black magic That is worth far more than gold. With this magic powder And a witches chant. We can carp against the world’s Intolerance and cant. Round the circle then we go You must please go first.” (Morris Sullivan) “No, you fail to think on one Important premise black We are only three-part here A partner we do lack.” ❖ (Edna Planiondon) “Summon hence my Eastern Brother He of sleepy eyes Call upon the poppies And mandragonosa wise. Hark! I hear the distant beat- ing Of the tom-toms of the East Witches, call him, send your spirits. Bring him to our present feast.” (Morris Sullivan) “Brother, come (They stamp once) We summon thee. Ne’er betide Thine own decree.” (Edna Plamondon) “Brother, haste (They stamp tv ice) Without delay Never matter Night nor day Brother, now.” (They stamp thrice and Sumner Adams ap- pears in distance) (Ruth Hurd) “Reveal thee, Now — Come, in answer To our bow.” (Sumner Adams) “I am present, hast away Night is waning into day Let us to our magic rites And garnish well our black de- lights Sister from the plainless West, Round the cauldron lead the rest.” (They dance around the caul- dron, throwing at intervals magic powder into the kettle.) Morris Sullivan Ah, here is a pitcher’s record for the American League and on looking it over, I find that Joseph Angelica is leading the League, having won the most games this season. There are a great many speeches being given in Congress for and against the League of Nations, the last speaker is being ap- plauded greatly. As he turns to sit down I see that he is none other than John Chillson giving a speech against the League and we thought back in Enfield that he would be a second Caruso. 16 THE ENFIELD ECHO A beauty Parlor, The Name? Ye Olde Blue and Gold Beaute Shoppe operated by the Misses Rebecca Gager and Grace Gowdy. Are they doing business? By the looks of the waiting line it seems a very successful business and these two young ladies have a new kind of beauty clay guaranteed to restore that “School Girl” complexion in one (1) day’s time. A music lover’s shop owned by Miss Viana Kibbe and she is selling other songs written by herself which are in great demand by the public. Keep it up, Vi, and you will soon be surpassing I rving Berlin. Crowds of people, streets roped off, bands playing. I have it ! a parade. No it isn’t a circus; it’s the presidential campaign of 1940 and to my surprise I see Carl Livingstone, candidate for the presidency, giving a speech in favour of the Philippines’ Inde- pendence. What is this book on the shelves of the leading book stores in Boston, that is selling so rapidly? It is clearer; the title is Rules of English Literature by Miss Eugene Mulak, an authority on English Literature.. Because of the extensive research work she has been carrying on in perfecting English Literature, several Colleges have offered her a chair. Siberia connected with Alaska! Absurd. But no! A gigan- tic bridge has just been completed. This almost impossible piece of engineering has been mastered by a young and energetic mem- ber of the Class of 26. Charles Zarcaro. The scene now changes to our home state and here the Demo- crats are having a great celebration due to the fact that their Congressman, Oswaldo Marianaccio, defeated his opponent for election to congress. Due to his administrative ability he may soon become Speaker of the House. Out of the hundreds that are applying for a position with Ziegfeld there are two here who seem to have been chosen for the leading parts in the Follies of 1940. Muriel Norris is considered even better than Palova, and Katherine Tatoian is equal to Morris, one of the greatest dancers on the stage. There is much excitement in court over the trial of George Smyth accused of violating the Speed Laws. The grave and solemn judge, Agnes Quinn, hears the case, one of the most in- teresting ever brought to her attention. Things will go rather hard for George, as the counsel for the defense is a member of the Thieves and Robbers society and rides horseback. The Telephone Company has hired two efficient operators in Miss Rose Verdina and Josephine Marinaccio. The subscribers have already noted the decided improvement in the service. Another house opened for inspection in Longmeadow, but this one is far more attractive than the others. People are coming even from the Middle West to see it. Never has a house been more THE ENFIELD ECHO 17 beautifully furnished, nor with such exquisite taste. The designer of all this beauty is quietly answering questions. As she speaks we recognize one of our class of ’26, Ruth Hurd. The Metropolitan Opera House, gaily dressed crowds enter- ing. Why, of course, it’s the opening night. A sudden hush as the curtain is drawn backward, a burst of applause heralds the approach of the beautiful, talented artist, Edna Plamondon, who has so successfully filled Madam Jeritza’s place. Sumner Adams The Chautauqua is here again. Our attention is now at- tracted by the crowd moving towards a large tent and in front of it in large white letters — Why look, those names are familiar, Priscilla Galbraith and Babe Thornes; they are now running this series of entertainment. A room on the sunny side of a large house. What a sad sight, a person lying sick in bed and to one side of the sick person’s bed we see a dainty little nurse bending over a tray of medicine and look! who it is, Beatrice Santa Croce. An Athletic Field at Enfield High: Tennis Court, ball dia- mond and a running track. It must be that Dorothy Parker has at last been successful in raising funds for these purposes. Will wonders never cease? Palm Garden taking the place of La Bal Taberine. Pearl Davis once with the intentions of being a kindergarten teacher is now a hostess of this ball-room. Look! The headlines of the Thompsonville Press read like this : Adam Kaminsky, once manager of the Enfield High School Baseball team, is now taking Homer Allen’s place as President of the Twin-State League. Cooks Ball-room, Riverside. Why is it the people are stand- ing outside, instead of being inside dancing? There is a speaker. Malley! This dance hall has become the largest hot dog stand in the world. Malley has increased the demand for hot dogs by his splendid orations. The Scene now changes from Riverside to Hollywood. The Metro-Goldwyn Studio. The director is looking for the leading man to take the part of Lon Chaney — Wait, the people are turning towards the entrance and instead of Lon Chaney, Clyde Terwil- liger comes in dressed as the Phantom of the Opera. Florida to the front again. Another great development. The Everglades will be made into a city twice as large as New York. Who is back of all this? Why let’s see; some one is making a speech. It is Lena Angelica, who chose the career of a travelling lecturer because of her success at public speaking while in High School. Bryant Straton School of Business Administration. What 18 THE ENFIELD ECHO can this mean? Wait, Florine Allen is coming towards us. She seems to belong here — yes she now owns this school and personally supervises all of the work. It is not to be wondered at, Florine, because you certainly proved you were capable back in Enfield. A millinery department in Paris. All of the Americans are buying their hats there. The public is simply going wild over these creations. The beautiful linings have in gilt letters, the Frances Deming Hat. Ruth Hurd Follow the red arrow to its destination, which will bring you to Sumner Adams, the “World Famous” face-lifter, specialist, now located in Chicago. On entering Adams’ Beauty Shoppe, you will look old and worn out, but after the most efficient beaute methods of Sumner Adams have been tenderly applied, you will look as if Ponce De Leon himself had taken you to his Fountain of Youth. On my previous travels I met the Vanderbilts, the Astors, and a great many other society people, who I found were all chewing the “World-Over” Joslin gum. Mr. Vanderbilt offered me a package and related the most interesting story about it. He told me that Eleanor Joslin had put Mr. Wrigley out of business, be- cause with every box of gum purchased, she, herself went and demonstrated how it should be chewed to obtain the best results. I was surely sorry that I had not money enough to buy an unsealed box, so that I too, might have again seen this “Still Chewing Gum Girl” of old Enfield. Come one! Come all! See the best fancy diver of the two continents. Mabel Beman, that quiet girl of the class of ’26, has accomplished her highest desire, to become world-famous as a fancy diver. All of her classmates of Enfield will be given a free ticket to see her perform on July 4, 1940. Come now, pack! and make the most of this opportunity. Do all you farmer boys want to become a poet as noteworthy as that poet of Scotland — Robert Burns. Then listen! Henry Cook of Bald Mountain, Somers, Conn, has just completed his volume of poems, written while on the farm. He tells that he received all of his inspiration by plowing, or in other country pleasures, day in and day out. Some of his best poems are at the present time being put into a smaller volume for the Grammar Schools to use. The youngsters are simply crazy to memorize them. The following is an extract from a poem inspired in him upon stripping corn at a husking bee. “To A Red Ear of Corn” Wee, Blushing ear of cornie New stript from your sere brown housie Thou clidna thinks to bring such bliss THE ENFIELD ECHO 19 As the fond thrill of a maiden’s kiss Thou thot’s to gae’ the way a like To feed the cows and hens at night But cornie, thou art no to blame In proving foresight may be vain The best laid schemes o’ mice and men Oft go astray And leave us glad for many a day. Are you looking for a vacation camp, where you may rest after your long months of steady study? If so, write to Mr. Albert Burbank, now physical instructor at Camp Ke Wa Ne. Fm certain that he will be able to put that guiding hand over you that your fond parents always want you to have, while off at camp. Do write for full particulars. You may all go to “Smith Brothers” when you want relief from a cold, but to bring relief to your hungry mind of knowledge call on the Smith Sisters, who are at the present teaching in what was Radcliffe of Cambridge, but which is now known as the Smith Shaker School or the Triple “S” of Shaker Boulevard. Come now folks! bring your nerves and ailments to Stella Phelps, now in full charge of her own established sanitorium for the quiet curing methods which are of her own creation. Won’t you please let Stella help you? Were you ever deafened by someone yelling “Hot Dogs”? If you haven’t been, just you visit the most up to date road side stand, superintended by Vivian Brunnell of Somers. She will surely make your ears ring as she triples off those musical words “Hot Dogs.” And I’ll guarantee that your lips will part into a broad grin when she hands them to you and rolls her eyes! That habit still clings, that she had back in High School. Want a thrill? Then come to see Ida Kibbe, she with the flaming red hair, now performing with Andrew Lucas, her part- ner in the High Steppers. Nothing like them has been seen be- fore. See the talk of the year — 1940. “There’s a church in the valley of the Wildwood” — and who do you all suppose is sitting in the front seat? I know that you won’t guess, so I’ll tell you — Rose Marie Collins, the minister’s wife. See what poetry can do for one as clever as was our own Marie. Don’t go blind! But rather purchase a pair of “Shure Cure” spectacles designed and patented by Daisy Lister, her first ideas being secured while in the halls of old Enfield. If you want a good book, get the latest written by Iva Ander- son while in her quiet studio in Somers. Here again, her imagi- nation was first stirred while in the sanctuary of Enfield High. Thinking of building? Bill Ding sez, if so, order your lumber at once from the Lumber King of Maine, Alfred Woodward, Inc., where more lumber is handled in one week than any other camp 20 THE ENFIELD ECHO of its kind in a year. His great success is due to his efficiency in operation and keen foresight, as well as his business ability. “Hear the pennies dropping — listen as they fall — ” Well, if it isn’t our old school chum Helen Colby holding the missionary plate for the little Chinese boys to drop their pennies in. Where did you get all your inspiration to go so far away from your home and friends, Helen? When you visit New York City, don’t fail to go up to “The Margaret Alice Quinn Candy Shoppe.” It is rumored that she is starting a chain of stores throughout the principal cities of the U. S. By so doing, “The Mary Oliver” and “The Martha Wash- ington Candy Shoppes” are being compelled to go out of business. Edna Plamondon Well, Well, I must prepare you for this because I’m sure it will be a shock. Here is Stanley Bigos, an absent minded pro- fessor of Yale. See if you can picture him as I see him, with nose spectacles and high silk hat intensely studying a poor innocent spider’s leg. Bigie was always bright in school, but I never thought he would ever settle down to be the dignified person I now see. What’s this? It’s impossible — I must be wrong. No it’s here as plain as day. A mump cure invented by Rachel Cormier, a professor of Chemistry, at Smith College. Rachel, after tireless work and experimenting, has at last invented for the good of man- kind a mump cure guaranteed absolutely to cure mumps in one day’s time. Good for you, Rachel, I’m glad that at last you like chemistry. A daintily furnished tea room and reclining in an arm chair in an attitude of pure content sits Mrs E. H. Dean (Peg Furey) munching nabiscos. The young lady is attired in the latest Parisian style and has the appearance of great wealth. One is fortunate indeed in finding Peg here as she is in demand at all times by almost every member of New Yorks’ four hundred. She is listening to the continual chatter of another smartly attired woman who is Ruth Bent just arrived from her eighth tour around the world. How Ruth has changed! Did you understand me when I said chatter? Imagine Ruth chattering, the girl who hardly spoke. A bill board. “Come On In, You’re Out,” starring Bob Gal- braith and the Marks Bros. It can’t be the Bob I know starring with the Marks Bros, the hits of the season, the greatest actors. I know that upon the death of Zeppo Marks some Bob Galbraith was begged to go in with them as a comedian — Wait! Some one is acknowledging the applause. It is Bob! You must be drawing a large salary because you’re the whole show. How the audience THE ENFIELD ECHO 21 is laughing. Bob, you certainly are making a hit as comedian. Scitico is all in a muddle. The post office is being enlarged and all around the north walls shelves are being built. What can they be for? Mae Grady, the postmistress, is telling me. Every year at this time the post office is flooded with baby chicks; so Mae, in order to handle them quickly and efficiently, is having the shelves built so that they can now be taken care of with little trouble and labor. Mae is a great success as postmistress. But what is this that I see? Tessie Sheehan is the proprietor of the Forest Park Flower Shop. One of her best customers is Mr. Handsome, formally the owner. But I think it is not the pretty flowers that attracts the gentleman, but the engaging young pro- prietress. However, I see in the background a dashing blond who does not approve of the glances of Mr. Handsome. The young lady is turning around and I notice she is flashing a large diamond on her left hand. The blond is the lucky man as can well be seen by the nods and smiles, all meant for no one but him. Franklin Simons’ exclusive dress shop in New York and crowds entering. The time is 2 :30 and all are waiting impatiently for someone to appear. It can mean but one thing. Gen Gorman is the leading model and, as I see, a very popular one. Gen is coming out dressed in a wonderful creation of pink and lace but — eyes are not turned to the gown as one would think proper in such an establishment but on the face of the girl. Gen is a great suc- cess as a model and Simons’ business has increased 100 per cent since the little girl of Enfield has been working there. Pamphlets in front of me, in back of me, and all around me, and an order to take one — Newer than the Charleston — “The Nackenson” — Nackenson — Nackenson, that name is familar. Sure enough, Blanche Nackenson and what’s this? Blanche has invented a new step in dancing far more popular than the Charles- ton ever thought of being and how she can do it. Isn’t it easy to picture Blanche back in E. H. S. strutting around the halls doing the Charleston. A Procession in the streets, a blare of trumpets, a loud cheer- ing. All women. One is carrying a banner on which is inscribed in large gilt letters. “Equal Suffrage League of Wisconsin.” Who is she? No other than Marion Rich — Well, I’m not surprised. Marion could always tell what’s what in women’s rights from a little tot and she hasn’t changed. The A. N. Pierson Plant, or the Cromwell Gardens, is under- going a great change. A new sign is being raised reading “Ready for Business on June 1st.” The largest Potato Chip Factorv in the world. A very business like young woman is walking about issuing orders as to how the different machines are to be placed. It is our own Rosie Testoni. Rosie, you are undertaking a big thing, but I’m sure you are capable of making it a go. 22 THE ENFIELD ECHO Here are a lot of pretty girls all talking as fast as they can. One is saying ‘T think he is the nicest man. Don’t you think my hair looks great since Mr. Sullivan did it? Oh, I think he’s just a dear.” One of the girls is asking, “Who is this Sullivan?” “Don’t tell me you don’t know Mr. Morris Sullivan of Enfield who has invented the new permanent marcel. Where have you been hiding? He’s the talk of the age, all the girls are crazy about him. The poor man has had so many girls after him for permanents that he doesn’t know where to turn. They say he has cleared a fortune already on it and he hasn’t been in the business very long. Here is Alice Lynch broadcasting from KDKA. Alice is often a feature on that station’s program. She has turned out to be quite a talker and she is continually in demand for public speak- ing. Most of her talks are about the young girls of today. They have a very dear friend in her for she believes that the girls of today are all r ight and should not be criticised. This looks like Texas. Sure enough it is, but what’s all the commotion about? Oh I see; they don’t know what to do for a Governor since Ma Ferguson got through. They are holding a meeting and a great deal of discussion is going on. A woman with a very clear voice is speaking. It is Helen Carey. The applause is wonderful, but awful on my ears. The place has gone about crazy because Helen has told them her ideas. By the enthusiasm shown I can easily predict that Helen is going to be the next Governor of Texas. At a piano on a brightly lighted stage, is sitting a daintily gowned woman. Through the room is ringing the sweet clear notes as the genius touches the keys. She is Marion Tally’s accompanist, but is at present giving a solo. The pianist is turning to acknowl- edge the tumultous applause. It is our little Florence Rochette. Florence, I knew that some day you would reach the top when it came to piano playing. An airship is whizzing by. In it I recognize Catherine Smialek (a reporter for the fashion department of a newspaper). She is shouting for help, having lost control of her ship. Some one is going to her rescue, but before he reaches the runaway airship, it falls to the ground. The rescuer is carrying her to a near-by hos- pital. After a careful examination by the doctor there, Catherine is found not to be badly hurt, only shaken up. The editor of the newspaper is notified that his popular reporter has met with an accident and by the exclamation of the editor I see that he could not do without the services of Catherine. Her column in the paper is always read with great interest by the young girls. Here is news all right. Tom Mirabile has been sued for breach of promise for the sixth time, and is now before the couids again for the same charge. Tom says it is all a bluff, but, as you know. Tommy was always popular with the girls and his large Novelty (Continued on age THE ENFIELD ECHO 23 CLASS STATISTICS By Alice Quinn and John Chillson Clyde Davis Terwilliger (“Mutt”) February 18, 1908 Enfield St. Thompsonville, Conn.

We’ve a verse for everyone. Dear Classmates, don’t be peeved at us. Because we’ve tried our best; Just smile with pleasure at our verse For you’ll survive the test. First is our President, Terwilliger, Of him we’re very proud; Although he seems quite bashful. He’s different in a crowd. Iva comes from Somers Each morning on the bus. We really would feel lonesome If she were not one of us. Although Stanley’s quite small We’re told he’s very nice; For when a girl is near him He sure can cut “some ice.” Clikety Clack, Clikety Clack, We hear a crowd in the hall. But we find it’s only Blanche And not a crowd at all. Now Tommy isn’t bashful; He really likes to grin. Especially at such a girl As Miss Agnes Quinn. Beatrice is so quiet; She always is just so; But Dan Cupid tells us Beatrice has a beau. A tiny speck of whispering Without Miss Gay’s permission, A little flirting on the side Is Agnes Quinn’s ambition. Flashy socks And a well designed tie Is Sammy’s ambition To wear or die. If you must find Peg Furey You’ll have some fun. Because her old hangout Is “Room Thirty-one.” Now Oswald is not mean. Neither is he rude; With a stove pipe hat and cane He really is some “Dude.” Barbara greets us with a smile Both at work and play. If you’re ever the least bit ril’d Just drop around her way. Ah, Rebecca of Somers Not “Sunny Brook Farm,” Is a girl with brown eyes And a soul full of charm Now Harriet seems so dignified But do not judge by looks, Because she only is that way When pond’ring o’er her books. Some folks write for fortune. Others write for fame. But Marie delights in writing And I’m sure we’ll remember her name. A boy who is laughing and joking. Who do you guess it to be? Well, I know you really know him. Cause it’s our old friend Kaminsky. Helen is so popular. Always has a smile. We have seen her serious Once in a while. The teacher calls on Catherine, She replies, “I don’t know,” But when it comes to dancing That statement isn’t so. Muriel is so quiet. Teacher never says, “Keep still,” I guess it’s cause she’s from the town By the name of Hazardville. Rose is up and coming, Plspecially in the morn When she distributes absence slips In the usual school form. Another Helen on the list. Miss Carey is (juite shy. Although she doesn’t seem to be so With that twinkle in her eye. 38 THE ENFIELD ECHO Babe, you’re next I see And I haven’t much to say Except to ask a question, Why pick on a ‘‘Chevrolet” ? Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone. But “Laugh out loud” Is what we hear Florine groan. Yes, Joe is a dancer; He knows some clever steps; He’s the best we’ve had And him we’ll ne’er forget. Stella drives a car i Over hill and dale; But she drives so fast Our faces slowly pale. Tessie seldom is on time. Which means of course she’s late; We wonder if she is as prompt When she must keep a date. We all enjoy riding And go in whate’er we can. But Dot Parker says. Give me a Ford Sedan.” Some tasks seem quite easy. Others are a proposition. But it takes Ruth Bent to show An even disposition. When Daisy is not so happy And hasn’t a word to say. We hope she’ll think of “Patsy” And her blues will fly away. Next is a boy named Albert, He’s quite a lad, we think. Because he never greets a girl Without his usual wink. There is a girl named Gowdy, She’s somewhat of renown; She boasts the place called Wollop And says she owns the Town! Another girl from Wollop, We cannot help remembering Is none other than our little vamn. Who is it? Why, Frances Dem- ming. Though El’ner’s specialty is gum. At verse she sure is going some The faster she chews, the faster she writes; So buy her some gum and she’ll write all night. We hear her down the corridor. We hear her in the lab, A sputt’ring ’bout her chemistry. Poor Marion; “Ain’t it sad?” ’Tis Johnny this and Johnny that. Oh! Johnny helps a lot. He’s just the most congenial lad And slow? Well, I guess not. Friends with everyone Is our Alice Quinn. And when all is said and done She’s surely bound to win. A Doctor, Bob would be. To doctor every ill. But to doctor up some English Sure Bob does need no pill. Along comes our Ruthie With a voice like a bird. But if she sticks to Bill She won’t be Hurd — long. A wisp of a child is Alice, So dainty and so neat; We don’t wonder Wesley picked her ’Cause really she’s so sweet. Here comes Vivian, “style a-la-mode” Who sells “Hot Dogs” long side the road. The stand so popular brings trade to this girl But it wouldn’t run if ’t weren’t for for Earl. Why little Mable Beman I very nearly missed. What a calamity ’t would be For she’s our class artist. Oh! yes, she has red hair But a Temper so sweet and mild; We’re quite sure ’t would take a lot To get Priscilla ril’d. A studious lass is Lena, My! how she does fight! She works with all her might and main And struggles for the right. A cheery soul has she And as happy as can be. Who else beside a Ray Could shine throughout the day? Edna is our actress Who vamps them one and all. Her ways are so alluring It’s hard not to fall. THE ENFIELD ECHO 39 Florence Rochette so they say Draws and paints most every day; She’s an artist dainty and sweet And her sketches are just as neat. Far, far out on a lonely road Live two young girls whom every- one knows. One is Vianna so sweet and fair; The other is Ida with bright red hair. Lilacs are blooming in Thompsonville On bushes in every alley. But there’s a bright flower in E. H. S. And his name is Lilac Malley. Morris is so little, Morris is so small. When we turn to find him He’s scarcely seen at all. There’s a nice boy in this class of ours Whose name is Chick Zacaro; We wonder if he’ll act the same Three days after tomorrow. Now Lucas is so bashful And does appear so meek. But when he’s in Somers, Oh! Boy! he’s some sheik. ‘‘Miss Davis, move along there, please!” Says a voice from “Twenty-six.” For most of the time our Gene ' s found Flirting with all her side-kicks! Some folks like to be dignified; Others don’t seem to care. We know Rose likes to be; Otherwise she’d bob her hair. Alfred Woodv ard so they say. Works in the drug store every day. He serves the folks as best he can And really is a good salesman. We wonder if our Carl will live A slow and quiet life. Or if he’ll change and rush around And live a speedy life There’s a girl in this class of sixty- four Whose name is Miss Mae Grady. She comes from the town of Scitico And certainly is a lady. Who is it in our history class Answers all the questions so? No other than a brilliant lass Whose name is Miss Marinaccio. “A slip of the tongue is no fault of the mind.” So our boy Henry quotes. But sometimes we think ’twould be quite right If Henry used some notes. Eugene is the village queen. We hear the people say. Don’t you know it’s Hazardville, The town where she holds sway. Next comes Catherine Tatoian Who has such large brown eyes; We wonder if the twinkle Is for her thoughts a disguise. SRe’s ver y dear and oh, so sweet. Also very kind. Another girl like Genevieve We‘ll never, never find. George is always willing. No matter what you ask. He’s a pleasant disposition And performs any task. Now last but not least Is this closing verse; We’re a bad class we know! But we might have been worse! CLASS PRESENTATIONS By Lena Angelica and Stanley Bigos Blanche Nackenson Mistletoe When Charlestoning she only swings Her body from the hips. Let’s hang this mistletoe above And then she’ll use her lips. Charles Zarcaro Wings To Chick we give this pair of wings. He needs them when he’s walking. Perhaps if he can keep them on They’ll cut down on his gawking. 40 THE ENFIELD ECHO Teresa Sheehan Ford Ca r Tessie’s heart is yearning, To learn to run a car; To her we give this little Ford And hope she won’t “run” far. Catherine Tatoian Plaster Perhaps in some bright, distant day Our Catherine in her own cute way. Will cease her chattering so gay And really have a word to say. Gene Davis Gloves They tell us that Miss Davis’ thumb Is sucked and chewed till it is numb; These gloves will make the chewing tough. Perhaps she’ll say she’s had enough. Rebecca Gager Aspirin Tablets To gargle sweetly. Sister, Whenever you orate. And from your pretty little mouth Sweet words will percolate. Thomas Mirabile Carnation A carnation kid is Handsome Tom: A spat and kid glove lad. The way he polishes off the girls Makes all the fellows mad. Beatrice Santa Croce Clothes Pin Though your nose sticks up at an angle You are not stuck up, we know. If you wear this clothes pin on your nose. Please do not try to blow. Frances Deming Diary Pocohontas needs a diary. She is always very late. Her excuses are ingenious And extremely up-to-date. Agnes Quinn Red Flag You crave attention — just wave this And you will get enough; Rut wave it wildly in distress When things get pretty rough. Albert Burbank Drum Albert drums so hard in English He most makes his fingers numb, So we thought he’d like to practice Upon this little soldier’s drum. Marion Rich Bathing Suit Marion’s always splashing water From the floor up to the roof. This suit may help, but please re- member. Everyone’s not waterproof.

We hope this will furnish enough To wear wherever she goes. Eugenia Mulak Dye To save you time in blushing We advocate this dye. But if you would not have it run Be sure and do not cry. Priscilla Galbraith Ruler This ruler we think is a dandy. So keep it within your reach; For it may come in real handy When you begin to teach. THE ENFIELD ECHO 41 Rose Testoni Oil “Squeak, squeak, squeak,” Go little Rosie’s shoes; A little oil will do them good And make them sound just as they should. Viana Kibbe Boy Doll Viana is so bashful; We often wonder why; We give to her this little boy; He’ll cure her being shy. Florence Rochette Palm Olive Soap Flossie has such rosy cheeks; They sure can stand inspection; We give her this Palm Olive Soap To keep that school girl complexion.

ADVICE TO UNDERGRADUATES By Lawrence Malley Most Egotistical Undergraduates: After much enjoyment over the foolish mistakes of the under- graduates, the Seniors on the eve of their journey into the outer world decided to give to the undergraduates from their great fount of wisdom a few words of advice. We hope that you will listen and take heed, though you have been known to listen and not heed the advice of your elders. Freshmen : I speak to you first, because you’re the youngest and next to the Juniors the most foolish. I advise you to use yeast, much yeast ; it might enable you to grow. Another thing you lack is the realization of whom you are speaking to when you speak to Us. You should address us as Sir or Miss, not “Hey there.” Sev- eral of your boys have been observed flirting and trying to entice Senior girls from Senior boys. Children, leave these feminine grown-ups alone. They are Seniors and as such, only Senior boys have the right to them. Freshmen, leaving aside your freshness, your foolishness, 3mur lack of respect for Us, your propensity for Senior girls and your qeneral lack of knowledge, you have the appearance of a good class by virtue of your showing in all school activities so far. Keep it up. Sophomores: You are a quiet class — you are the only ones who know it. When you pass through the halls, be quiet; allow the Seniors to think. With the noise of you children it is hard for us to think of an excuse as to why we didn’t do our Latin. One of the failings of your class may be diagnosed as swell-headitis. Remember that in comparison to us as Seniors, you are like a candle to a searchlight. One thing we admire in you, is your en- thusiasm towards school activities. At all the games, many Sophomore girls are to be seen. But of course they come to see the Seniors play and to hope that maybe some day the Sophomoi’es may be as good. Besides your quietness, your swell-headitis, your low men- 44 THE ENFIELD ECHO tality and numerous other shortcomings, some day you may com- pare favorably with the Class of 1926. Juniors In you are combined the shortcomings of the Fresh- men and Sophomores and a thousand more. In athletics you show a wonderful lack of enthusiasm. I fear for the results of Enfield’s teams next year with the guiding hands of the Seniors gone. You have also shown a remarkable ability to get yourselves into pickles. Juniors don’t do it. It doesn’t pay and besides you are sorry for it afterwards. I have been told that a few of you youngsters like to use big words. That’s all right and ought to be commended. But before you use them l ook up their meanings and find out how to pronounce them. Most people do. Juniors, when are you going to grow up and experience the joy of long trousers? Really, it’s a wonderful thrill. You had better grow soon or it will be too late. I have been told that in your class are some boys who are weak. The best prescription I know of is to go to the gym. All Juniors should at- tend the gym classes. Gaze upon these upright Seniors who have attended gym. Don’t skip gym but attend it faithfully as the Seniors and then when you graduate people may say, “How like the Class of ’26.” Juniors : You will soon be called upon to succeed to your seats in Room 26. Try to be as good as athletes and attend gym as well as the Seniors have and then when you graduate you may be able to say, “It is to the glorious Class of 1926, the best class Old En- field has sent out, we owe what we are today.” Undergraduates : In closing may I assume a more solemn tone? For four short years Old Enfield has sheltered us. In that short time she has implanted in us a love that shall never be up- rooted. May you receive that affection also ! Cherish Old Enfield, Fellow Schoolmates, and do everything you can to make her a bigger and better Enfield. RESPONSE FOR THE UNDERGRADUATES By George Crombie, ’27 Honorable Faculty, Friends, Fellow Undergraduates, and most conceited Seniors : While listening to your more or less well chosen words of ad- vice, several thoughts have been running through my mind. In the first place, we undergraduates must remember from whence cometh this advice and treat it accordingly. But, of course, it would never do to allow these remarks to pass unchallenged. Since you have first picked on the poor little Freshmen, I will endeavor to answer for them to the best of my ability. It hardly seems chivalrous for these great and wonderful (as they them- THE ENFIELD ECHO 45 selves admit) Seniors to pass such uncomplimentary remarks about those who have been privileged to enjoy the advantages of E. H. S. for only one year. These Freshmen are small, but we must remember that the bigger they are the harder they fall, and many a big Senior boy has taken a hard fall for a small Freshman girl. How can you expect Freshmen to call you “SiF’ or “Miss,” when you are not popular enough to be called by your right name? As for school activities you must remember our dear Freshmen won the interclass championship in basketball, while t he so-called athletic Seniors could not even turn out a team. It would take half the evening to discuss the fine points of this class, but I might say that the Freshmen class is the best that ever entered Enfield High, with the exception of us Juniors. Let us now take that exceptionally good class — the Sopho- mores. This Senior in his advice stated something about the Sophomores interfering with the thought of the Seniors. I wonder if the Seniors are such extraordinary persons that they can do two things at once, that is, thinking and walking at the same time. And if they could, what thoughts could they possibly have which are too important to be interrupted? Sophomore girls’ attendance at games is merely a manifestation of class spirit. Why shouldn’t they go out to gaze upon their classmates who outnumber the Seniors in all sports. Those girls must have little time left to notice a mere Senior. Next we come to the most beloved and most active class in the High School, the Class of 1927. Do you realize how unjustly you spoke when you said that we had no athletes? Count the men on the football, basketball, and baseball teams. You will find that each team is composed of at least three-fifths Juniors, and I don’t mean to speak of quantity alone. We have already shown our quality in the interclass football games, in which the Juniors so crushingly defeated the Seniors 6 — 0.. It would seem that the Senior girls are no better athletes than the boys, for I have it from good authority that they are too afraid to soil their lily-white hands to attend gym. On the same good authority I can say that our Junior girls are stars in the gym. Upon looking over the Senior class we find that there is at least one Senior boy who has not yet had the experience and joy of long trousers. There are only a few Juniors who have missed that thrill, and by the time we succeed you in Room 26 we shall all be in the long-trousered class. In closing let me talk in a more serious tone. We accept your advice in good spirit and we will try to coi-rect what few fan Us we have. We hope you will succeed in all your futui ' e ventui ' es, and we hope you will always remember the classes of 29, 28, 27 as we will always remember you. Take for your motto “Old Enfield fii’st, last, and all the time” and keep it in your hearts foi-evei . 46 THE ENFIELD ECHO Prog ' ram for Graduation, J ine 17, 1920 Music — March, “Here They Come” HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA Prayer Richmond REV.

We, the class of 1926, standing upon the brink of the great unknown, realizing that the day of departure is imminent, with full control over our brilliant intellects and in complete possession of our common sense, hereby declare and publish this to be our last Will and Testament, revoking and declaring null, wills and prom- ises made by us at any previous time. First — We do request that mortuary exercises be conducted by our Principal and long- to-be-remembered Faculty, and desire that said services should reflect all the grandeur and stateliness that was ours. Second — We give, devise and bequeath as follows : Item — To the Faculty a well deserved rest and an opportunity to thoroughly digest all new theories and methods discovered dur- ing our stay at Enfield High School, advising that discretion be used in teaching them, for the thick skulled Juniors may not be able to understand that deliquescence is the process of making soap. Item — To the Junior Class, our Senior dignity, advising that they cast aside their silliness and childishness and assume said dignity. Item — To the Junior athletes, the Limelight hitherto occupied by the Senior athletes. May they equal us in ability. Item — To our room teacher. Miss Gay, our sincere friendship and an apology for our sometimes orderly behaviour. Item — To the cast of next year’s play, the histrionic ability of the class of 1926, which was so ably displayed in “Bab.” Item — Although we are loathe to part with them, we make the following bequests in good faith, trusting that their worth will be appreciated. 1st — To the school at large, all words coined by us, and all the startling information discovered by Niemiec in Chemistry class, especially the amazing fact that air is made up of oxygen and hydrochloric acid. 2nd — To Edward Abrahamson the business end of the “Echo” charging him to keep it free from financial worries. 3rd — To Edward Foley Chillson’s privilege to collect vanity cases, silver pencils, combs, scarfs and books. His educated blush and ability to vamp are not included. THE ENFIELD ECHO 49 4th — To the Junior class the Senior ability to carry on orderly class meetings. 5th — To the present and future classes of the Enfield High School the gift of gab, bluff and loud tones of Miss Joslin. We desire that this bequest be divided into three parts, one each for the freshman, sophomore and junior classes with a portion to be left in trust for all future classes for “they may come and they ma ; go, but the supply goes on forever.” Item — All the residue of our property which has not been disposed of by this will we give and bequeath to our Principal, Mr. Parkman, for his sole benefit. Item — We hereby appoint said Principal sole executor of this our last Will and Testament. i In witness thereof, we the class of 1926, testators, set our hand and seal this 14th day of June, Anno Domini one thousand nine hundrejj and twenty-six.

THOMPSONVILLE HOTEL Time Was When Milady Would Go Shopping for furniture and look only to see if it was strong and durable. The tables or bedsteads or bookcases had simply to give service. That was the sole con- sideration. But that time is well in the past. 7 oday furniture gives service, yes, better than ever, but there is added an air of distinction to even the smallest and simplest piece. It is designed in pleasing and accurate pro- portions, with beauty of finish on a foundation of good form. The period furniture is carefully executed in its period details. The overstuffed pieces are authentic designs of velour, tapestry, etc. The woman of today has discriminating taste in matters of furniture and her demand for better things has been met. Beauty is combined with utility to give distinction. It is always a pleasure to show you through our display rooms. It will help you in your ideas. J.
