BRUCE THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 THE HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1926 r T " r HE day which at this time four years ago was so far in the • future has arrived at last. With what joy and hard work these four years have been filled! Although not organized socially as a class during our Fresh¬ man year, we progressed as well as any “Freshies” possibly could in our studies and athletics. In October the upperclass members of the G. A. A. initiated the girls. No one was sorry when they had finished their stunts! In a theme contest conducted for High School pupils by The Flexible Shoe Store of New Bedford, Muriel Chamberlain and Louise Lopes won prizes. It was during this year that “The Huttlestonian” which has proven such a success was started. We are the first class to have had a school magazine for four years. In the early part of September, 1923, we elected the follow¬ ing officers: President .DOROTHEA PAULL Secretary .Margaret Manghan Treasurer .WALTER SPOONER This year the class established a splendid record in athletics. We had members on the varsity football and varsity basketball teams, and in the orchestra. Our honor roll was surely a credit to our class. Our initiation into High School socials was in the form of a Valentine party. It was during the summer of this year that we lost Lydia Shurtleff, one of the noblest members of our class. The Junior year was the happiest of our High School career. Champions like “Pat” Sullivan, “Cuffy” Tunstall, and Paul Cieurzo enabled our football team to sweep all opponents before them, and win for us the Bristol County Championship. The girls, too, did well in athletics taking first place in the inter-state track meet. As Walter Spooner left school in the fall, it was necessary to elect a new treasurer. Beulah Champegny was chosen to fill his place: At the same time, James O’Leary was elected to the office of Vice-President. THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 It was during this year that the Student Council, School Sav¬ ing’s Bank, Literary Club, and Traffic Squad were organized. Junior Day, an event initiated by our class was certainly a success. We did feel big marching into the auditorium with our green and gold ribbons. Can we forget that condescending gaze fixed upon us by the Seniors? This year seems to have been short, sweet, and successful. Our play “The Road to Yesterday” certainly brought out the fact that in future years some of the seniors will out-shine Valentino and Mary Pickford if they choose to do so. There have been several honors conferred on members of the class in 1926. James O’Leary was sent to the convention at Hol¬ yoke as representative from the School Council. “Cuffy” Tun- stall was appointed Captain of the Traffic Squad. “Milly” Park¬ inson and Margaret Manghan were elected officers of the “Liter¬ ary Club.” While speaking of the latter, a most enjoyable Christ¬ mas party was given by the club. A resume of the 1925-1926 athletic schedule shows us that the boys lost only one football game, came off with flying colors in three out of four inter-scholastic track meets, and won eight out of thirteen basketball games. And that banquet! Where are the words that can express the fun? We take a great deal of pride in the fact that our class is the first in the history of the school to have a successful “Year Book”. Ask the staff and Miss Siebert about the fun of editing it! ! ! We came, we conquered, and now we must depart. We are proud of our wonderful High School, and we are well aware of the fact that very few students in any part of the country have had the advantages with which we have been blessed — the aid of an efficient faculty and beautiful and inspiring surroundings in which to work. We are glad to have spent four happy years within your walls, dear Fairhaven High, and we linger upon the thoughts of fare¬ well. As we go our separate ways, it is with the feeling it will be the spirit of Fairhaven High that will help us to “carry on”. 1101 THE YEAR BOOK 1926 DOROTHEA R.

The city is a riot of color and everyone enters into the spirit of the carnival. I alone seem to be out of tune with my surroundings. Lonely, and vainly seeking for diversion, I wander down among the old antique shops along the river front. The gay abandon and joy of the carnival has not penetrated there. I enter one of the shops. It is dark, and the odor of musk fills the small room overcrowded with antiques. A little Jew in a long black smock and black skull cap comes out of the back room as I enter. Listlessly I look at the beautiful things. Then suddenly my attention is arrested by a large transparent globe that seems neither unique nor valuable. I pick it up and the Jew says, “That, Madam, is a magic globe. In it can be seen past, present, and future, as you wish,’’ My lips curled scornfully; I do not believe in fairies or miracles, but underneath all my cynicism is a streak of curiosity which all women possess. So I buy the globe and laugh at my foolishness. At night, though, I take out my new purchase. I wish I knew something of the Seniors of ’26 at Fairhaven, but I doubt the power of the globe to reveal the secret. As I gaze at it, however, it fills with a mist which slowly clears away. I see a manor house of old England with turreted roofs and gloomy towers. Under the porte-cochere stands the latest model of the Rolls Royce. A liveried servant is holding the door. The bronze portals open, and the tall, dignified duchess of the manor steps forth. Though wrapped in sables the figure seems familiar. She turns—Ruth Avery! Again the mist envelops the scene and once more clears away. The Great White Way of New York! One brilliant sign stands out above all the others: “Florenz Ziegfield presents Marion Smith in ‘Why Men Leave Home’ ’’,— Marion constituting the chief reason. Then the inside of the crowded theatre is reve aled. On the stage, a piano, and seated at it playing vigorously is Evelyn Smith while a dainty morsel of femininity—our Marion Smith is dancing vivaciously to the strains of music. The chorus comes down the stage, and in the front row is Beatrice DeCoffe from Fairhaven, if you please. After a while the globe again becomes a blank. This time the clearing of the mist reveals a little bungalow. On the porch a pretty matron sits sewing. A man enters the gate. The woman goes to meet him, and greeting each other tenderly they go into the house. It is Mildred Parkinson, and, naturally, the good looking man is James O’Leary. THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 - - — - - ■ fC 4 ) The next picture takes me to an artist ' s studio with great bare walls, an open fire, and low lights. In the center of the studio is Eric Peacock the coming young artist of Mattapoisett whose latest picture, “Venus at the Pump’’, has excited so much comment. He is presenting to the world his model and fiancee— Heavens! Virginia Vokes. The door of the studio opens and who should walk in to have a portrait painted but Elsie Johnson. Now a large hall appears—palms fluttering, blue and white crepe paper, an orchestra jazzing madly, uniforms everywhere. Sitting in the line of pa¬ tronesses with an elderly man at her side is a sweet faced chaperone, Doris Gilbert. On the table nearby I see a school catalogue, and in large letters, “Tabor Academy, James Van Dusen — Head Master.” Someone is turning the pages of the book. The face on the frontpiece is that of “Fran” Parker. A glance at the bottom shows Mrs. James Van Dusen, the school sponsor. So she married a Tabor man after all! The globe is slowly emptying. This time it reveals a busy doctor’s office. White capped nurses come and go. I look closely at one. Surely I know this light-haired girl. It is Eleanor Bly. The door of the inner office opens and the doctor steps out. I am not surprised when I find that it is Paul Cieurzo. He passes a copy of the morning paper to Eleanor, pointing as he does so to a picture on the front page. It is the president of the United States, “Al“ Andrews and his secretary Hattie Le Baron! The dim outline of Belgium and its busy city of Antwerp now comes into view. But why the crowds? It is the month of the Olympic games. I am be¬ fore a river. The signal for the swimming contest has just been given. T wo of the competitors forge ahead. On, on they go, gaining every second. One wins and the other comes in second. The people shout madly; I strain to see the victors. They are Cuthbert Tunstall and Ray Sylvia, former athletes of Fairhaven High. In the meanwhile, several airplanes have been circling about over head. Suddenly from one a figure descends by a parachute and lands in the midst of the people close by me. Imagine Benny Barnes one of the members of the Senior Class of ' 26! What is next? A long stretch of sandy shore dotted with vari-colored parasols and crowded with bathers. Why it’s Palm Beach! Who is that stylish stout lady under the vivid orange and black parasol, and appearing so much in her element as she sips lemonade and reads? Dorothea Pauli. Without a doubt! Nearby, crowds of people are gathered around a platform where a woman in mannish clothes is making a speech. I look up at a poster which reads, “Lillian Figuerido will speak-on Woman’s Rights ”. THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 Once more the globe becomes a blank. This time the scene changes to a beautiful avenue in California. As I glance at the shops along the avenue, my attention is arrested by one in particular—“Nottingham Tea Shoppe”—for in the open doorway stands my old classmate Marjorie Tuttle. Farther down the avenue I catch a glimpse of a large sign “Mary Pimental ' s Beauty Parlor. Lotions of all Kinds Administered to Make You Beautiful”. Now the globe reveals an auditorium and on the platform a large orchestra. The leader is making an announcement “Mr. Walter Longmore the famous cornetist will now play a solo— ‘The End of A Perfect Day’ ”. I glance at the audience. In the back of the hall is seated a man whom I have seen before, I’m sure. I look closer — Gordon Hall, a newspaper reporter writing up the evening’s program! Next the Metropolitan Opera House comes into view. Crowds are push¬ ing their way into the lobby, for tinight the “American Caruso”, John Kinney is to sing. If one were permitted behind the scenes, he would undoubtedly find “Dotty” Learned, now Mrs. John Kinney, spending a few quiet moments with her husband before he goes on the stage. My globe leads me on in the mystic light until a large plain building be¬ comes distinct — “Waldron’s School of Theology for Women”. Within I catch sight of the familiar figure of “Catsie” Waldron, now dean of this world famous institute. Next door to the latter building and directly in contrast to it, is Enos AlfereL mammoth picture house. In the ticket office in the lobby is my friend Irene Anderson. The picture now playing is “The Idyl of the Forest”. The scenario was written by Louise Lopes. The leading lady is Doris Gaucher and the leading man is Robert Greenhalgh. They both have become prominent screen artists. Across the street from the motion picture house is the church of which Milton Lord Marchant is the rector. The choir is singing, and even through the vista of years I cannot fail to recognize the voice of the famed soloist Mary Toledo. My attention is now arrested by the beautiful strains of an “Amati” vio¬ lin, and with abated breath I gaze again into the magic globe. There is a massive audience in a large auditorium. The lovely artist who stands smiling and bowing in appreciation of the applause of her audience is no other than Yvonne Demers. Next is revealed the inside of a court room in New York. A case is before the court — Gilbert Stearns is being tried for breach of promise! Helen Hammond, Emily Hayter, and Annis Hebden are trying to prove that each should THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 have the $50,000 that he had been sued for. The judge, “Don” Axtell is listening attentively to the lawyer for the defense, Sidney Burrell. Beulah Champegny, his secretary, sits nearby. The scene changes to the street outside the courtroom. Such congested traffic! But with the aid of the new woman traffic cop, Edna Passmore, the crowd crosses safely. Nathaniel Pope is among the hundreds of motorists. Seated at the wheel of his latest model he is indeed a sporty figure. “Nat” is the owner of a large factory which manufactures yearly, millions of these good looking cars. As I walk down the street a newsboy comes toward me. I buy a paper, the headlines of which have attracted my attention — “Joseph Sylvia elected Mayor of Mattapoisett”. Evidently Mattapoisett is beginning to prosper. This time the globe reveals to me dear old F. H. S. — but a changed F. H. S. As I enter Mr. Dickey’s office, Robert Caswell rises from the official chair to greet me. He has just been conversing with Bessie Jenney, the new supervisor of music. Are you interested in other members of the faculty? William Bartlett is instructor in Physics. Evelyn Silveria is of the English Department, Jeanette Demers is supervisor of physical training. At the head of the entire Academic System — you won’t believe it — George Gonsalves! In the old school stadium a circus tent has been pitched. “The Blossom Boys’ Circus” is in progress. At the entrance to the main tent I hear a voice calling, Right this way ladies and gents to see the biggest show on earth”. It is none other than Sylvester Xavier! ! ! As I look around, my attention is arrested by group of horses running around the ring. Then some girls come out and mount them. I recognize one of the girls to be Ruth Russell, bareback rider. Next I enter a small tent where crowds are watching a snake charmer. I push nearer and see my classmate Gertrude Durfee. I go into another small tent nearby and read a sign “The Fattest Lady in the World”. Heavens! Alice Broadbent. My! How ten years can change a person. Near her stands the strongest man in the world, Alexander Bruce. Suddenly the siren of the fire engine commands the attention of all. As it rushes by, I catch a glimpse of the chief, “Stan” Pentleton, and of Rex York clanging the bell. The latter brings forth the usual laugh which has such a familiar tone, that I turn to find myself standing by Margaret Manghan now secretary of the Y. W. C. A. and Lucille Perry, President. The globe is magical! I have seen all my classmates. Hoping to learn of my own future, I lean closer straining to catch but a glimpse. I grow tense, waiting, watching. My fingers slacken. Crash! My prize lies in atoms at my feet. Such is the working of that elusive thing called Fate. [39] THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 c l - 140] THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 AN APPRECIATION To Our Coach : During our athletic career at Fairhaven High School, all participants in any sport have come in con¬ tact with the squarest and the finest of men that it is possible for boys to meet who are in need of a good guiding influence. Always giving the boy the benefit of the doubt, always allowing for little things, he deals out justice equally, as far as it is possible to do so. Maybe some have thought that they have been mistreated, but nothing is farther from fact. On his teams, all have an equal chance and all get equal shares of his coaching. He treats the poorest players with as much respect as he does his stars. He is not only a coach, he is the boy’s friend and the assistant builder of his character — our Coach, EDWIN F. PIDGEON. THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 St F FOOTBALL 19 2 2 W ITH the entrance of our class, the football team started its drive for glory and championship, in quest of which they have been most successful. It was the second year under the able coaching of Edwin F. Pidgeon, the man destined to lift Fairhaven from the ordinary ranks to that high grade where teams are spoken of as champions. The season opened with Fairhaven High playing host to Falmouth High. We were rather out of Falmouth’s class for they returned on the short end of a 63 to 0 score. In the second game Fairhaven took into camp the tough Hope Street High, champions of Rhode Island. The final score of 7-to 0 fully tells the fierceness of the struggle. In the first of the big games, Fairhaven, not quite up to form, was held by a huge Durfee team to a scoreless tie. It was a game replete with thrills. The last big game of the season was scheduled for November 17. Every¬ body was pulling for the fighting blue team to finish its first undefeated season, to defeat New Bedford, if possible, for the first time in twelve long years! The first half ended in a no score period with the playing about even. In the second half, Fairhaven carried the fight to New Bedford, and then with New Bedford’s ball in mid-field a fumble, Brad Terry, alert Blue end, scooping up the loose oval raced for a touchdown. Holland added the extra point. The game ended 7 to 2 and a hysterical crowd ran wild over the field carrying the victorious Blue players on their shoulders. That night the fans celebrated by [421 THE YEAR BOOK 1926 c i ■ - - ■ ■ ■ . ■ ■ ■ - «7 touring New Bedford and letting the world in general know that they were victorious. On December 15a testimonial banquet was tendered to the squad by the townspeople. The squad presented to Coach Pidgeon a set of golf clubs and the townspeople gave him a handsome gold watch. Speeches were made by Mr. Pidgeon, Mr. Dickey, Captain Tunstall, and others. The players were given coat sweaters, and John Allen, cheer leader, was presented with a gold mega¬ phone. The letter men elected Johnny Hawkins, the big full back, to the captaincy of the 1923 season. The following men were chosen on the All Bristol County Football Team:—Brad Terry, Alfred Sylvia, Hilton Holland, Fred Pflug, and John Hawkins. SCHEDULE.

With six veterans in the line-up, the season opened against Hope High. Late in the third period, Hope completed a forward pass for a touchdown. The Blue team fought desperately, but could not tie the score and Hope carried home the bacon 7 to 0. Our luck changed, though, when we turned back the Red and Black in¬ vaders from Fall River. The score was 7 to 0, after one of the most thrilling of games. With the balance on the victory side of the ledger, the boys went to play an undefeated Whitman High team. The Fairhaven team had eleven stars which accounted for their 7 to 6 victory. The final battle! Fairhaven had never won a game at New Bedford, and but once before had the Blue team held the Red to a tic. New Bedford was the favorite and was out to see that Fairhaven did not boast a victory over them. Our boys played the defensive for three quarters of the game, and the Blue broke the long string of victories on Sargent Field by holding New Bedford to a score¬ less tie. Members of the team honored by being chosen for the All Bristol County Team were: “Toughy” Sylvia, Captain John Hawkins, Carl Hirst, Fred Pflug and Paul Cieurzo. On December 1 7 about two hundred townspeople gathered at the Town Hall to pay tribute to the Fairhaven High Championship Football team. The THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 -)i c t - - ■ . — —- players were presented with gold footballs while they gave Mr. Pidgeon a sport jacket. The speakers for the occasion were: Joseph McGlone, war hero and Harvard football and baseball star, Mr. Pidgeon and Captain John Hawkins. At the close of the banquet, Paul Cieurzo was elected captain for the 1924 season.

Again the season opened with Hope High of Providence furnishing the opposition. The Blue eleven turned in a 1 4 to 0 victory in a game in which the invaders were outclassed from whistle to whistle. Whitman, the team Fairhaven defeated the previous year 7 to 6, was listed for the third game, and a game it was. When the final whistle was blown the Fairhaven team were the tired, victorious winners of a 6 to 0 game. A new-comer was Fairhaven’s fourth opponent, Dedham High School from the suburbs of Boston,—but they all looked alike to the Blue warriors! The final score read Fairhaven 1 9 and Dedham 7. It was a tired, bruised, and battered eleven that trotted onto the Fall River gridiron, and the Blue fans worried over the outcome of the game. In ten minutes the lightning attack and the keen ball-following of the Fairhaven team amassed fifteen points, but wearied from previous games and early exertions, the light, Blue team could not hold the gigantic Durfee team, and Fall River scored. At the start of the second half, Durfee again marched up the field for a touchdown, but with everyone giving a little bit more than ever before, the Durfee attack was slowed up and finally halted until the end of the game. Then a jubilant but weary Blue team was carried off the field with a 15 to 14 victory. For the first time in years, Fairhaven was the favorite to defeat New Bedford, due to their impressive record of eight wins and no defeats. Fairhaven started early to show New Bedford how to play football by smearing play after play. A sensational sixty-two yard run by Blue backs brought the first score. The third quarter had barely started when a New Bedford back fumbled and another Fairhaven score was chalked up. With a fourteen point lead, Fairhaven played defensive football, but two poor Fairhaven kicks resulted in a New Bed¬ ford score. This was a dying effort, however, as Fairhaven showed then an- THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 cfyfl -- - ajsrs other touchdown to put the game “on ice’’. The decisive 20 to 7 victory gave Fairhaven the Bristol County championship for the third time. On December 1 7, Santa Claus came to Fairhaven and in the form of a testimonial banquet the “Blue Streak " , as it was dubbed by sport writers, re¬ ceived tribute after tribute and finally their gifts. The first eleven received gold footballs, white sweaters, and letters. The squad presented Coach Pidgeon with a beautiful silver plaque, suitably engraved, and a tennis racquet, while the townspeople gave him a check for one hundred dollars. Speeches were made by prominent townspeople, Coach Pidgeon, and Captain Cieurzo. The letter men elected Robert Sullivan, a guard for three years, to the captaincy of the 1925 season. The following players were named on the All Bristol County Elevens: Paul Cieurzo, John Sylvia, Harold Macomber, Ray Eldred, Charles Holland, and Cuthbert Tunstall.

Coach Pidgeon began assembling another championship team. On September 28 a team somewhat heavier, faster, and more powerful than that of the previous year, trotted onto the gridiron to battle for the fourth year in succession, Hope High of Providence. The final score was 13 to 0, Fairhaven. On Columbus day, Swampscott High School, champions of the North Shore League, were entertained at Fairhaven. The resultant effort of the “Blue Streak " was a 26 to 0 win and one of their best games of the year. Due to the fact that Fairhaven was not to play New Bedford in football, it made the big game of the schedule the one with Durfee High of Fall River. The defensive line play of the Blue held the invaders in check while the versatile Blue backfield ran wild. The final score was 14 to 0. With the record of seven victories and no defeats, Fairhaven High journeyed eighty-five miles to meet the best team in the State, the Salem High School— a team that had not been defeated for two years and who later went to Florida to defeat the Florida State champions by a crushing score. With all this in mind, backed by one thousand townspeople and before a crowd of about eight thou¬ sand, Fairhaven, after being scored upon three times in the first half, the result of stage fright and weakness after the long journey, came back to play this wonder team even for the remainder of the game, and to redeem itself in the eyes THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 C d iiK ' i of its supporters and everybody else who witnessed that nightmare of the first half. It meant that the greatest team in the history of Fairhaven High School was defeated by a score of 20 to 0, and that does not fully tell the story of the battle by a team that was the greatest in the State. On December 18, the largest crowd that ever gathered at the Town Hall to honor a Fairhaven football team, about two hundred strong, paid tribute to the team of 1925. The principal speech of the evening was made by Coach Pidgeon in a defense of football. Other speeches were made by Mr. Dickey, Mr. Prior, Reverend Parker, and the redoubtable John I. Bryant. Captain Paul F. Cieurzo presented to Mr. Pidgeon a regulation size football on an ebony stand, a gift from the squad. William Dexter was elected captain for 1926. The first team and two substitutes were presented with gold footballs. The following players were chosen on the All Bristol County Football Team by vote of coaches and captains of the Bristol County Football Teams: Paul F. Cieurzo, Cuthbert Tunstall, William Dexter and Harold Macomber.

When the season opened it bade fair to be a good one, because with the opening game our boys triumphed over B. C. Aggies. This team had always been reputed as a good outfit. All in all, the team that year won six games and tied one out of eleven. The games lost were all dropped by small margins. Among the greatest feats of that season were the wins over New Bedford and Durfee. In our first game with Durfee we came out on top, after the flashy Hilt Holland scored a field basket that put us one point ahead of the opponents. The final score was Fairhaven 20 — Durfee 19. In the tussles with New Bedford, the first was a tie. After battling six periods of fast basket-ball, Charley Tripp, who was substituted in one of the overtime periods, proved the hero of the game when he let a shot go from the middle of the floor with two seconds to play. Followers of the team will never forget that shot! The next meeting with New Bedford was again in their own gym, — a playoff of the tie. With the Blue winning, it was the first victory over New Bedford in twelve years. The game in our own gym was similar to the first one played in New Bedford. It ended with the two teams deadlocked with the score twenty all. Shortly after the over time period got underway, Freddy Pflug shot his first basket of the season, and the period wasn’t over until each wearer of the blue had contributed a basket to aid in piling up the score, which when the game ended, stood Fairhaven 33 New Bedford 22.

Unfortunately there was a lack of co-operation among certain players, and a few games that should have been won were chalked up as wins for the opponents. Two members of our class earned letters that season—Prescott Hoxie and Jimmie O’Leary. ■ One of the games was with the Hawaiian Five, a team composed entirely of Hawaiian men. They were a fairly good team, but our boys were two fast for them and they were obliged to admit defeat. The Hawaiian team entertained the spectators before and between the halves of the game with selections on their string instruments, and with tumbling and acrobatic tricks. The most interesting game of the season was the one played with Durfee in our own “gym”. It will always be remembered as one of the closest tussles staged on our floor. The final score was Durfee 20—Fairhaven 19. The following was the schedule for the year: Fairhaven 36 Holy Family 15 Fairhaven 19 Durfee 20 Fairhaven 39 Hawaiians 20 Fairhaven 32 B. M. C. Durfee Textile 19 Fairhaven 39 Dartmouth 3 Fairhaven 22 New Bedford 35 Fairhaven 17 New Bedford 25 Fairhaven 18 Durfee 43 1924-25 This season opened with very poor prospects in view. Our Coach had a tough proposition staring him in the face—that of building a team out of very poor material. Graduation had taken away many stars like Freddy Pflug and Don Barnes. Members of the squad of the preceding year were Carlcy Holland, Prescott Hoxie and Jimmie O’Leary. As was expected, the season started off in very poor style, the team drop¬ ping the first five games. The team at this time suffered the loss of one of its best men in Carlcy Holland. T here were only two games worthy of mention. One was with New Bedford in the rival’s “gym”. The boys put up a stiff battle but with New Bed¬ ford leading by one point in the last few minutes of play, a certain New Bedford player named Tripp dropped in an unconscious shot. This ended the scoring and the game ended with the score 13 to 10 in favor of the Red. The other praiseworthy game was the second one with Vocational in our own gym, the final score being 1 6 to 1 5 in our favor. Our boys turned the trick after a hard fought battle, and the team deserved all the praise it received for the feat, because of the fact that it was the first time in five years that a Fairhaven High basket-ball team had defeated a vocational quintet.

Although some of the games that were won were not the type that is desired, some of those in which we were defeated were very fast, close games. The team showed up best against Vocational and Durfee; the first games with these respective schools being the best played all season. In the fir st Durfee game we were nosed out in the last quarter to be beaten by the small margin of three points. In the first encounter with Vocational, the team showed some of its best form, but the basket shooting was not what it should have been and we were defeated. Pop McGowan and George Cooke were among the leading scorers in the county and we can quite safely say that " Pop” was as good a center as any in the county.

BASEBALL 1923 T HE season opened with the Durfee game, and when the game was over our lghts of a good season were rather shadowed. The team consisted of a fine bunch of ball players until it was at bat and then — well they just couldn’t hit! Hawkins did connect for a couple of good bingles now and then but he was an exception. However, the boys played well and worked hard under the able leadership of Captain Hilt Holland. The team did one thing that will be remembered and that was to force the “highly touted team” from the big city across the river, into extra innings. Our boys fought hard but again their hitting failed, and the score after twelve innings of good ball was New Bedford 15, Fairhaven 11. The following was the schedule for 1923.

The team played but eight THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 games that season and only three were won. The schedule called for nine games, but owing to rain one of the games with New Bedford was called off. This was later forfeited to the New Bedford crew. The best game played during this season was the one with Durfee on our own diamond; the final score was 9-8 in favor of Durfee. The Durfee coach remarked after the game that he was really afraid that the blue would pin a defeat on his star outfit. The schedule for games in 1924 was as follows: Fairhaven 5 New Bedford 8 Fairhaven 8 Durfee 9 Fairhaven 7 Vocational 5 Fairhaven 13 Vocational 3 Fairhaven 4 Holy Family 5 Fairhaven 6 Holy Family 7 Fairhaven 7 Tabor 9 Fairhaven 9 Tabor 5 1925 Of the eleven games played during 1925, the team won five. Carlcy Holland was captain and pitcher, and a fairly good team was built up. It had a bad ailment (one that most all our baseball teams have had) that of not being able to hit. Of the games played, the most interesting were those with New Bedford and Durfee — both on our own field. The scores were 2-0 and 3-2. During this season, the team took two games from Vocational, dropped two to New Bedford, split with Dartmouth, trounced Wareham, split with Tabor and dropped two to Durfee. The game with Dartmouth at Dartmouth was the prize game of the year, but we’re not saying what kind of a prize was given! The game was played in Dartmouth at a place called Gidley stadium and the final score was 17 - 14. The Dartmouth boys had an advantage owing to the fact that they knew more about each potato furrow on the Gidley stadium diamond. A cow that was wandering around center field narrowly escaped being hit by a line drive off Bill Dexter’s bat! A farmer also threatened to keep the ball if the boys didn’t stop trampling over his newly planted corn. It sure was some game!

C - - - GIRLS’ ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION T HE Girls’ Athletic Association of the Fairhaven High School was or¬ ganized in January 1922. The object of this organization was to promote and foster inter-class and inter-school athletics, thus emphasizing fair play, loy¬ alty, courtesy, self-reliance, alertness, promptness and persistency. “Play the Game” was the motto adopted. All girls in the High School are eligible for membership. This organization allows no girl to take part in any athletic event unless she is in good health and is free from all injuries. T his rule teaches the girls to look after their health, and seek ways of improving it. The girls also have to follow the rules of eligi¬ bility of the Massachusetts High School Athletic Association in order to play on any team. In recognition of the girls’ work in various teams of the school, emblems are awarded at the end of the school year. The awarding of merits is made as follows ; D—1 5 points monogram C — 30 points numerals B — 45 points school letter A — 60 points gold athletic pin. This organization has proved to be one of the most successful in the school. Its activities have spread not only to athletics, but to many other fields. “Welcome” gatherings have been given to the first year pupils so that they might become better acquainted with the upper class-men. Hikes through the country roads and woods have been great fun, not mentioning the good times that have been had on the “hot-dog” and marshmallow roasts which have been held at Pope Beach. [54] THE YEAR BOOK 1926 The sick committee has attended faithfully to its duty. Flowers have been sent to brighten the sick room and attractive baskets of fruit have tempted the appetite of many an invalid. In 1924 a “health code " was adopted by Miss Ruth Cady. As a result at various times in the school year the health of the girls has been checked and marked improvements have been noted. The present officers of the organization for the year 1925-26 are: President Mice President - Secretary Treasurer Faculty Advisor - Basketball Manager Publicity Officer Cheer Leader VIRGINIA M. YOKES—’26 Mildred Parkinson - - Edith Kenny Palma Champegny Lucille Perry . Miss Boynton .

BARNES V GILBERT - T STERNS 158 J THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 UfC ' J THE SENIOR PLAY A Junior’s Impression T HE fatal Friday evening having arrived, we bent our foot-steps towards the Town Hall. This was our last chance to see the Senior Play from in front of the footlights and laugh at the expense of our superiors. As soon as we were seated, smiling young ladies relieved us of our hard earned cash, in exchange for a sweet, sticky liquid called punch. As we gazed about us, we noted with some amusement that the policemen, supposedly keep¬ ing the exits clear, were blocking every doorway. Then the orchestra crashed into the overture and the music entertained us until the curtain rose on the first act. The latter was a pleasure to see. The stage was well filled with actors and we watched with bated breath for a collision. But no, the characters glided about as smoothly as you please. “Cuffy” Tunstall brought down the house by his evident enjoyment of the “d—ns” afforded him by his lines. The speech by “Goosey” Stearns, “I don’t feel such a fool as I look” met with the hearty approval of all who knew him. Mildred Parkinson made a hit from the start. She was under the influence of some Cheshire Cheese which must have been fairly powerful, when you consider the mixup it caused. We were delighted during the second act to see Catherine Waldron handle the servant problem (Ben Barnes) with both hands. By the way, we are still wondering where Ben got that red nose. Of course, the big event of this scene was the fight which was a humdinger. “Goosey” dashed on and off in a breezy manner, but refused to be a dime novel hero and lick ten men all by himself. Of course, there must be a ‘‘dastardly villain” in every play and “Nat” Pope took the part so well we hated him. That is, so long as he was a villain! Of course, later on, he became an assistant hero so we had to change our views again. Even the little freshmen appreciated Dorothea Pauli’s perfect interpretation of the passionate gypsy girl. Her acting and costume realized the part even down to the ever present cutlery. Marion Smith as the witch drew our sympathy when she was so cruelly treated by the villain “Nat” Pope, curse him! Ruth Avery, both as the queen and in the modern setting was fine. The last act is still slightly confused in our minds owing to the fact that we were dazzled by the presentation of the flowers. However, one thing that greatly impressed us was the speed of “Goosey’s” love making. It was a pleasure to watch him. We also want to mention the tableau scenes. They were extremely effective. And now to wind up our discourse, we wish to remark that the play was a success, and we hope that next year’s will be as good. Ahem! ! THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 c o )f SENIOR CLASS MEMBERS OF ORCHESTRA THE ORCHESTRA T HE first High School orchestra rehearsal was held on Friday, November 3, 1911 in the high school auditorium. It was directed by Mr. Clarence Jones. The first public appearance of this orchestra was on December 8, 1911 at the Senior Class Play. The Fairhaven High School Orchestra of 1926, under the direction of its leader, Mr. Jones, gave its annual concert the latter part of May at the Town Hall. The orchestra this year was representated by eleven violins—Helen Ham¬ mond, Yvonne Demers, Beulah Champegny, Mary O ' Leary, Astrid Phillips, Louise Emin, Melba Texiera, Thomas Perry, Hugh Cameron, Walter Roos and Albert Bates; a cello—Dorothea Pauli; two saxaphones—Palma Champegny and Alfred Andrews; six cornets—Gladys Hebden, Bradford Blossom, Walter Longmore, Allen Gammans, Arthur Coe and Harold Sylvada; a clarinet— Clarence Blossom; a drummer-—Filbert Silveria. Miss Rosamond Simmons has been pianist. The orchestra either in part or as a whole has given its services during the year at various times; at the Senior Assembly held in November in the school auditorium; at the Senior Play, “The Road to Yesterday’’ held at the Fairhaven d own Hall in February on the twenty-sixth and at a concert given in the High School Auditorium in the month of February. [GO | THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 C d THE LITERARY CLUB T HE Literary Club, whose object is to further the aims of the English De¬ partment by promoting an appreciation of the drama, the art of debate, the modern novel and modern poetry, began its activities for this school year by electing the following officers: President, Frederick Moss; Vice-President, Mil¬ dred O. Parkinson: Treasurer, James Hossley: and Secretary, Margaret Mang- han. The membership is restricted to those of the three upper classes who are able to carry a “B” in English. At Christmas time, a party was enjoyed by members of the Club. Mr. Dickev and Miss Pauli gave appropriate readings and Mr. Erickson and Miss Toledo rendered vocal selections. Miss Siebert accompanied on the piano. Santa then appeared and distributed gifts from his well filled bag. The last week in March, Mr. Ranlett, librarian at the Millicent Library lectured on “How to Write Manuscripts for Magazines " . His talk was most instructive. On May 27, Mr. George H. Tripp, librarian at the New Bedford Public Library spoke before the Club and its guests on “Books ' . Mr. Tripp’s lecture was made interesting by a resume of the development of books, and a beautiful copy of a book, which he had on display, made four hundred years ago by a monk. The lecture concluded his talk with a list of books which would prove most helpful to students to read. [ 61 ] THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 LA BONNE COMPAGNIE L A BONNE COMPAGNIE was organized in 1920 for the purpose of pro¬ moting social intercourse between the parents of the members and the faculty and student body. Membership to the club was eligible only to stu¬ dents enrolled in the three upper French classes. Miss Susan Gifford was chosen faculty advisor. In former years La Bonne Compagnie has staged several French plays for the benefit of the school as a whole. During 1922 the club gave “La Surprise d’Isidore’’ at the Unitarian Parish House for the Allen Class and their guests. In 1924 it gave before the school “Christmas Kalends of Provence’’ by T. A. Janvier. In 1925 it entertained the mothers of members with tableaux illus¬ trating old French songs, and tea was served in the library. This year the following short plays have been given as a part of class work: “Le Medecin Malgre Lui’’, “Dans un Ascenseur ”, “La Surprise d ' Isidore’’, and “Les Deux Sourds’’. It is planned to give “Le Voyage de M. Perrichon’’ during the last term. The officers of La Bonne Compagnie for 1925-1926 are as follows: President—Mildred O. Parkinson Vice-President—Hope E. Dudgeon Secretary — Frederick Moss Treasurer — Charles Holland THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 THE LATIN CLUB T HE “Carpe Diem Sodalitas” was formed to give the Latin pupils an added interest in the language. “Carpe Diem” means “Improve Each Day’’. The officers this year are: President — Ruth Avery Vice-President — Granville Prior Secretary and Treasurer — Edith Kenney Chairman of Entertainment Committee —Constance Dudgeon Two pins are awarded each year, one to the pupil who has no mistakes in the vocabulary play-off for first year Latin, and the other to the pupil of the three upper classes who excells in vocabulary work. These pins are held as long as the winner continues to win; if he fails they are given to someone else who has had a perfect score. This is continued from year to year. Miss Ransom and Miss Walsh are holding the first year pin, and no one is holding the second one at present. Two years ago there was a grand play-off of all the vocabularies which had been given. All the classes took part. First each class played off: then the winners played off. Finally the contestants narrowed down to Miss McAfee, Miss Avery, and Prior. Gold pins were awarded to those three as the winners. These pins were kept by the winners. There are two rival syntax teams — one Sophomore, the other Freshman. So far this year, Miss Owen’s team has been ahead of Miss Mitchel ' s in the second year class. In the first year contest Bradford Mitchel’s team has won more victories than Miss Ransom’s. As a result Miss Mitchel, and Miss Ransom’s teams will have to provide the food for the club picnic to be held in June. The teams are now playing off to see who will furnish the liquid refreshments. At present it looks as if it would be the same two teams. This is hard luck. The A and B class will decide by a vocabulary contest with the C class which shall play the host’s part at our coming celebration. The Carpe Diem is very proud of the fact that two of the three home pupils of the class of ’26 are now members of the club, and the third was a member until recently when a programme conflict made it necessary for her to drop out. [63] THE YEAR BOOK 1926 )f THE COMMERCIAL CLUB T HE Commercial Club was founded in 1920 for the purpose of getting to¬ gether for social intercourse, the students of the Commercial Course. The Club has an initiation, several parties, and an outing during the year. Last fall the dignified seniors initiated the Juniors. After eating the snake’s eyes, grasping the reptiles from Africa and being branded with the sym¬ bols of the club they took the M. Y. O. B. pledge: “I solemnly swear by the hair of my head To each night do my shorthand before going to bed. Ell not park under street lamps or sit on a stone wall For the next day in class my shorthand will fall ”. A very successful Christmas party was held in the gymnasium. John Kinney Santa Claus had a large pack as each pupil ordered a present for the one whose name he had drawn. Miss Gurney our faculty advisor was pre¬ sented with a casserole. The faculty and student body were guests of the Commercial Club at an afternoon party on April Fool’s day. Beulah Champegny was hostess. A solo dance by Ellen Meal and a saxophone solo by A1 Andrews were the features of the party. Favors were received by all. The Club is now anticipating a mighty enjoyable “Hot-Dawg” roast in June at Fort Phoenix, an annual affair. T he officers of the club, which are elected from the members of the Junior Commercial students to take office during the Senior year, are as follows for 1925—1926: President — Margaret Manghan Secretary-Treasurer — Edna Passmore 164] THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 THE DEBATING CLUB T HE Debating Club was first organized April, 1921 for the purpose of promoting argumentative speaking. During these four years of our class, inter-class debates have been carried on in which the seniors participated. So many other activities have been expected from the members of the Senior Class that it was decided to center the debating work for 1925-1926 with the first two classes. Early in the fall the Sophomore Class met to elect a debating council which should function with the officers of the Debating Society. This consisted of five members. The debating work for this year has been devoted almost entirely to inter¬ class debates between the various sections of the Sophomores. It was decided that a debate should be the Sophomore Assembly Program for this last winter. It was given in the Assembly Hall before the student body. The subject, “Resolved that the United States should have a separate department of Aviation”, was upheld by Walter Kuechler, Marie Rousseau, and Dolores Rousseau, and opposed by Marion Morse, Edith Mitchell, and Ruth Ritchie, and Miriam Owen as alternate. The decision of the Judges was in favor of the negative. A debating team consisting of Marie Rousseau, Marion Morse, and Walter Henshaw are preparing the negative side of the debate with the Junior Debating Society of New Bedford. On June 4th in the School Auditorium they will debate the question, “Resolved that the United States should have air forces that will compare proportionately with other countries.” This will be the first public debate of the Sophomore Society and will conclude their work for this year. THE YEAR BOOK — 1926 ?? ( ' ■ THE STUDENT COUNCIL T HE Student Council was organized in 1924. Its aim was to act upon problems dealing with the academic and social sides of school life. Each home-room elected a certain number of members to serve on the Council. “Eddie” Dubiel was elected the first President. Among the early problems which the council considered was the estab¬ lishment of a Traffic Squad in the school. Shortly after school opened in September, 1925, a meeting of the Council was called to elect officers for the year. Those elected were “Jimmie” O’Leary, President, and Mildred Parkinson, Secretary. On February 22, 1926 a State Convention of Student Councils was held in Holyoke, Massachusetts. The delegates sent from our school were “Jimmie” O ' Leary and Fred Simmons. They brought back interesting and helpful accounts of the workings of other Student Councils. Among the subjects for discussion at the various meetings during the year the following have been taken up: 1. Setting a standard for eligibility of officers and members to the Council. 2. Reorganization of Service Points. 3. Organization of a Good Sportsmanship Award Committee. 4. Decision of making Student Council responsible for posting all notices regarding student activity. 5. Advisability of having all members of Traffic Squad approved by the Student Council, [ 66 ] THE YEAR BOOK 1926 C n THE TRAFFIC SQUAD T HE Traffic Squad was organized in 1924. Its purpose was to aid in the problem of regulating efficiently the passing of the students to and from classes. “Carlcy” Holland was elected Captain, Mildred Parkinson and “Cuffy” Tunstall, Lieutenants. After a year of successful operations, officers for the coming year were elected as follows: “Cuffy” Tunstall, Captain; Mildred Parkinson and Fred Simmons, Lieutenants. Perhaps one of the pleasantest memories of the Senior members of the Traffic Squad to look back upon during their last year at school, will be the part they took in the celebration of the “send-off” of Mrs. Broughton. It was their duty to form the line of march when the entire school paraded to Fort Phoenix, and to escort the colors. It was they, too, who lead the cheers as “The Sapphire” steamed slowly out of the harbor, and saluted the jubilant crowds of school children gathered in groups along the shore or high up on the rocks. In addition to regular traffic work at the school, the Squad has taken it upon itself to conduct visitors around the school, and to entertain the Eighth Grade of the Rogers Grammar School on a tour of inspection, in order to interest them in the High School. We hope that the Traffic Squad of the future will continue to render effective service to the school. [ 67 ] The End Autographs vA. rg - Jac- , s- cwJLa- .

Owen, ’28 Single Copy , 25 Cents THE HUTTLESTONIAN The introduction of soccer into the list of sports is in the nature of an experiment. The question to be decided is whether we, a small school, can carry on two sports at once. A goodly number are already practicing under the capable instruction of Mr. Best, while more are expected out as soon as the rugby season has closed. Let’s make this new sport a success by going out for it and supporting it! Fred Simmons and his squad seem to be handling the traffic between classes very well this year, in spite of the fact that several radical changes have been adopted. Somehow or other, we would like to say how much we like Mr. Borah. The systems he has established, and the results he has obtained during the short time he has been here are wonderful. There are other sports on the way and we should all help Mr. Borah to keep up the good work. Hail to the school debating society! May it have a long and success¬ ful life, and it surely will if its success can be foretold by the number who reported for the first meeting. We have many societies in the school, but none more important than this one. There are many pupils in our school, and indeed, in every school, who complain that they cannot express their thoughts aloud. Is there any remedy better than debating? All our lives we shall be judged by our spoken words. Surely, High School, with its small audience is a good place to practice. Think how absurd it would be if on being asked for an opinion we were first obliged to write it out. We hope before the end of this year to be able to do inter-school debating. Rivalry could run as high for a debate as for a game, and it would give another group of people an opportunity to [15] THE HUTTLESTONIAN distinguish themselves. In view of these facts we are all glad that a debating society has been organized in the Fairhaven High School. One of the improvements worthy of note this year is the surrounding of the athletic field with canvas, thereby forcing everyone to pay. The pupils still have the fun of selling tickets outside the field, but the school is helped by everyone who attends. I think many people liked the idea of allowing those who could not pay to enjoy the game, but we find that many of those without tags are well able to pay. There is no reason why we should provide free entertainment for such people, and, also, for those who loudly criticize our team and school. I can think of no high school where admission is not charged to the football games and some charge even more than we do. We hope by this method to benefit the team. Now that the football season is almost gone and we modestly admit that we’ve enjoyed a good one, our fancy lightly turns to thoughts of basketball. We should turn out a good team this year and in passing, I should like to remark that large sized gatherings of Fairhaven rooters at the games, never discourage our players in the least. In other words, support the team! Our reverend coach, Mr. Borah, has already ordered the basketball equipment. By the way, the suits will be of an entirely different type this year. Our crossword puzzle uniforms will be seen no more. The boys wore them out playing checkers last summer! Mr. Borah, however, has designed and ordered some very snappy looking suits. We happened to see the drawings before they were sent in and feel that we must congratulate our coach on his artistic endeavors. The picture of the basketball jersey was very well drawn and plainly labelled “Jersey” so that no mistake was possible. The drawing of the trunks was very generous as to size about the waist. On the whole, the designs were very neat, but I could not help noticing that Mr. Borah said at the end of his letter, “If you can’t understand these drawings let me know, and I’ll send you some.” THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Judge Loses His Temper W ITH admirable restraint, the Judge choked back a particularly expressive cuss-word. No, today he would not lose his temper, if he could jolly well help it. It was bad for a person to get angry— interfered with the digestion, and all that. After making this heroic resolve, the Judge crawled about on hands and knees till he had recovered the unruly collar-button that had so sorely tried his early-morning equanimity. He then rose to his feet and, glanc¬ ing at his watch in its overnight position on the bureau, saw that he had barely time to breakfast and reach the Courthouse by nine. So with his feelings well under control, he ate rapidly the burnt offering his wife was accustomed to lay before him. During his brisk walk to the Courthouse, the Judge observed that the day would be warm. In fact, it turned out to be very warm. The excessive heat, together with the large number of petty cases on the docket and the stupidity of the many witnesses, did not tend to improve the tempers of the lawyers. Though sorely tried, the Judge smiled serenely. He would not lose his temper. At last there came to the stand, a man, who after having one story squeezed from him, retracted it, and told another. The perspiring lawyer flared up. The Judge, however, placed his finger tips together and in a this-hurts-me-more-than-it-does-you tone of voice said: “Let us keep calm. It is warm, I know. But let us consider this man’s point of view. He is not necessarily a liar because he tells two tales.” The Judge fumbled in his waistcoat pocket, smiled, and went on, “For instance, I would have sworn a moment ago that I had my watch in my pocket but I now remember that it is at home on my bureau.” In this manner, the Judge saw to it that the Court “pursued the even tenor” of its way. At the close of the session, he hastened homeward. His wife met him at the door. “I should like to know why you cause such a fuss when you want an errand done?” she demanded. “What’s the matter now?” countered the Judge, evenly. “What’s the matter! You ask that, when I’ve had to answer the door to no less than three of your men?” “I still don’t understand.” (Concluded on page 20) [17] THE HUTTLESTONIAN “The Little Sister of Mercy” I N a little town in France there lived a French girl called Renee Lesperon. She was a sweet-faced slip of a girl, with big black eyes looking out of a small heart-shaped face surrounded by a luxuriant mass of dark-brown hair. Renee was an orphan and lived with a cousin in a small hut on the outskirts of the village. When the war broke out Renee decided to help, but when she offered herself at the hospitals the nurses looked astonished and merely told her she was far too young. This made her so angry that she determined to show the nurses that she could help. Two months later Renee was established and flourishing in her new work of ministering to the tired, hungry and wounded soldiers who came her way. She became known far and wide as “The Little Sister of Mercy” and she did her best to live up to the name the adoring soldiers placed upon her. Early in the spring of 1917 it so happened that a large attack was being made on a French detachment not far from where Renee was living. Each evening many soldiers came to the little house for coffee, soups and sometimes bandages for wounds. As her business grew Renee put cots into her little house with money procured from charitable friends. The more severely wounded occupied these cots until they were able to walk and then they made way for others. The last of May saw the first summer weather coming. One night an unusually weary group of soldiers gathered at the little house. An officer, one Henri Cochet, detached himself from the general group and approached the girl as she stood surveying the room from the door¬ way. As he drew near he spoke, “Madamoiselle, I wish to warn you—a German spy is in this neighborhood—yesterday he was fired upon but escaped and no one knows exactly where he is, so please be careful.” “Monsieur,” answered the girl, “do you think I am yet a child that I cannot take care of myself. I and my little house stand for kindness to all and no one would harm us.” “Ah! Madamoiselle,” sighed the officer, “little do you know of German soldiers and their ways.” As he said these words he walked slowly back to the center of the room with the girl beside him. The others saw them approaching and lively chatter broke out among them. [ 18] THE HUTTLESTONIAN All faces brightened as the men, wearied and wounded, looked at the chit of a girl who meant so much to them in their present time of need. At eleven that evening the little house was quiet save for an oc¬ casional moan from the room where the wounded were. The girl was making ready for bed when suddenly a sound outside arrested her movements. As she raised the curtain and gazed out into the night she perceived a man lying on the ground, his upturned face shining white in the light of the moon. Quickly slipping on her dress the girl made her way out of the house. Lifting the head of the man the girl saw, with a start, that the man was in the uniform of a German soldier. She pulled from her pocket the ever ready box of simple remedies which she carried and gave a bit of brandy to the soldier, forcing it into his mouth. Slowly he came to and sitting up looked dazedly at the girl. In a low voice Renee spoke to him and urged him to try to stand that she might help him into the house. At length, he arose and, guided by Renee, was lead into the house. She took him into her room and asked him what his business was. He understood no word of what she said and shook his head in dispair. As he sat down on the edge of the bed ' he fainted once more and Renee rushed to his aid. On opening his shirt she exposed an ugly shoulder wound and soon had it deftly and securely bandaged. She managed to get him into bed and that night she sat up and watched. Early in the morning the German awoke. By signs Renee made him understand that she had found his secret dispatches. The soldier made a gesture of resignation and motioned the girl to go out of the room. In five minutes when the girl tapped on the door he was up and dressed. At this moment a troop of French cavalry men drew rein in front of the house and came into the front room loudly asking for “The Little Sister of Mercy.” Renee went out and spoke to them and bade them make themselves at home. Plainly agitated she went back to the German soldier and made him understand that she would help him to escape if he would go back to the German lines, leaving his dispatches with her. He agreed to this and while the French soldiers chatted out in front, a bulky-looking figure left by the back door and made its way rapidly toward the west, where lay the German lines. Renee had managed to fit him out with a priest’s robe to cover his uniform. Five minutes after his departure the girl came into the living room bearing steaming cups of coffee. She had burned the dispatches that no THE HUTTLESTONIAN harm might come to anyone. Throughout the night she found herself wondering if the so-called “enemy” had reached his lines safely. No word came back, however. At the close of the war a letter came addressed to “The Little Sister of Mercy.” Within was the munificent sum of fifty thousand francs and a note in rather weak French saying: “To The Little Sister of Mercy” who remembered, at a time when she might well have forgotten, that one Great God watches over and loves us all.” Hope E. Dudgeon, ’27 (■Concluded from page 17) His wife snorted, “No? Well, they said you sent them for your watch. Left it on the bureau, you did. Naturally, I gave it to the first man.” “I sent no men!” said the Judge, blankly. And then, we are sorry to say, he lost his temper in a deplorable manner. Frederick M. Moss, ’27 [20] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Find One day, Character Garbed in the dress of a human being, Came down upon this earth From her lofty pedestal, That she might find a person Who was trying to make the best Of all life’s bumps, knocks, and discouragements. Finally, She entered a huge white tent, A circus tent, bedecked in flags, And containing the attractions That go to make up such an affair. Underneath the white top, Hundreds upon hundreds of people Were expectantly sitting, Watching the happenings in The lighted three rings. Character, among these people Found personalities of all types. Interesting people, Some you cared to know; to have as a friend; Others you did not favor. And so it was here, That character found the person of her ideals. Found him in the form of A Clown. The man who day after day No matter how he might feel Must needs come before these people, His audience, for the moment To make them laugh and forget What a combat life really is, If you make the most of it. ’Twas the clown who forgot Himself, in serving others. Who concealed his feelings Behind smiles, And laughed Tho’ it hurt! Dorothea R. Paull, ’26. [21 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Mr. Shelley: “You are on the foot¬ ball team, are you not, Cook?” George Cook: “Yes, when they are not on me !” James Catlow (Coming into Senior Shorthand Class) : “I would like ‘The Ancient Mariner.’ ” Miss Freeman: “Does anyone know where Miss Siebert keeps ‘The Ancient Mariner?”’ Class : “In the closet.” Harold Sylvada: “Oh, he’s all right in his way.” Walter Keuchler: “Yes, but he doesn’t weight much!” Mr. Shelley: “Miss Parshley, what is the meaning of ‘Ich weiss nicht?’” Miss Parshley (hesitating) : “I don’t know.” Mr. Shelley: “Correct.” First Freshman: “Have you heard about the nine Scotchmen who con¬ tributed a sum of money to a pool? The pool was to go to the one who could hold his head under water the longest ?” Second Freshman: “Which one won?” First Freshman: “They all drowned.” Editor : “One of the sophomores told me the other day that he went to sleep and dreamed that he owed me ten dollars.” Assistant: “Yes?” Editor: “And then he woke up and was afraid to go to sleep again for fear he’d pay me!” Miss Siebert: “Fred, what was your choice for the book-report?” Fred Simmons: “I chose a book on art.” Miss Siebert: “You are interested in art?” Fred Simmons: “Oh, no, not par¬ ticularly; ‘Art’ is my middle name. Miss Siebert.” Instructor: “You will have to stop this under current 1” Student: “There’s a raisin!” Miss Siebert: “I want everyone to take his seat.” Eunice Hirst: “Where to?” Mrs. Dodge (to pupil) : “Give me the third person singular, perfect indica¬ tive of the verb iubeo.” Pupil: “Iubet.” Mrs. Dodge: “Wrong, iussit.” He Sat! 1 [22] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Observant Student Item taken from the Boston Herald of Sunday, October the twenty-fourth: “Dooley, the Dartmouth safety man, had a tough time when the Harvard backs got loose in the secondary.” Item taken from the Fairhaven War Cry: “Peters and Bollea, the Dartmouth safety men, had a tough time when the Fairhaven backs, H. Macomber and Cook, got loose in the secondary.” Some day Fairhaven is going to lose some yardage if the policemen don’t keep the youngsters off the field when a touchdown is being made. The youngsters don’t know any better, but the policemen ought to know that if more than twenty-two players and the officials are on the football field, the offending team is going to get penalized, and it may mean a touchdown lost. The local papers, ever “sympathizing” with the losing team, said that Dartmouth failed to stop our attack in the last quarter because the Dartmouth team was getting weary from playing on the offensive. Every time Eddie, and Freddie Moss, jumped over the center onto someone’s neck, the Dartmouth team got wearier and wearier! The bottle of hair tonic mentioned in last year’s “Huttlestonian” for Mr. Pidgeon’s use might be handed on to his successor. What would Mr. Borah do without George Cook to signify by his presence that every one was out of the locker rooms? The Senior Class has increased its budget. Why not appropriate funds to get: “Mac” and Charlie Burns, new hats— Jimmie Hossely, an orange sweater— Web Brown, some new red neckties— Eddie Hawes, a bow-tie— “Pop”, some peroxide— “Eddie” Hunyack, some fried scallops and George Damon, an ice cream cone— Bill Dexter, a tent for his harem— (Concluded on page 36) 23 1 THE HUTTLESTONIAN Bristol County Football Champions FAIRHAVEN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL SQUAD 1926 Front row, left to right—Alden, Silva, Wood, Slocum, Terhune, H.

[ 24 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN In the opening game of the season, played September 25 in the stadium, Fairhaven defeated a much heavier Hope High team 15-0. However, the Providence Gridders showed lack of practice in tackling and handling the ball and had very little to show in the way of an offense. With the score standing at 12-0 Harold Macomber booted the best field goal via the drop-kick method, ever seen on the local field. The kick was made from a difficult angle and traveled all of forty yards. Besides “Mac”, Warren Aiken and George Cook were outstanding for Fairhaven, while Keegan showed up well for Hope. FRAMINGHAM 7 — FAIRHAVEN 0 On October 2, over-confidence and lack of strict officiating proved too much for Fairhaven in their first out-of-town game. As is the case with most Fairhaven teams they don’t look as good on an opponent’s field as they do on their own. Framingham, having ten men of last years’ team, walked right through Fairhaven from the first kick-off to score in the first period. Although Fairhaven held them for the rest of the game, they could not make good the endless opportunities to score and the game ended with the score unchanged. FAIRHAVEN 20 — DURFEE 6 Playing its first “big game,” Fairhaven High decisively defeated Durfee High of Fall River at the stadium on Columbus day. Fairhaven showed a new split formation that completely baffled the Durfee defense. This game marked the debut of “Russ” Macomber at full-back and he covered himself with glory when he went over for the first touchdown. Brother Harold added the second and Jimmy Hossley scored a third when he intercepted a stray Durfee pass and galloped forty yards for [ 25 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN the final touchdown. Durfee had two good backs in Riley and Sullivan and they walked right through Fairhaven’s weak line without a let up for their only score. The work of Boynton, the Durfee quarter offered a great contrast to the splendid exhibition given by Jim Hossley, the •Blue’s field general, as he picked his plays poorly and was none too sure in his handling of punts. FAIRHAVEN 27 — VOCATIONAL 0 Using sweeping end runs and dazzling passes, Fairhaven downed Vocational School of New Bedford at the stadium October 16th. Although victorious, Fairhaven’s line looked weak and lacked charge both on the offense and defense. Harold Macomber and Warren Aiken were the individual stars each scoring two touchdowns while “Mac” made good three of his four at¬ tempts for the point after touchdown. FAIRHAVEN 35 — DARTMOUTH 6 In their annual contest with Coach Armstrong’s husky green jerseyed boys from Dartmouth, Fairhaven pulled through victorious after a very poor start as the score at the end of the half was but 7-6 in Fairhaven’s favor. One would have thought that the team which trotted out to answer the whistle for the second half was an entirely different aggregation. They changed from a listless, defensive team to a speedy offense which quickly tired Dartmouth. In the last minutes H. Macomber and Cook ran wild to bring the grand total to 35. Watkins played a fine game for Dartmouth. FAIRHAVEN 36 — FALMOUTH 0 Fairhaven literally swamped Lawrence High of Falmouth in the stadium in a listless game October 30. Harold Macomber severely in¬ jured his shoulder in the game, but Russell carried on where his brother had left off and scored exactly half of the points with three touchdowns to his credit. George Cook and Charley Stiles, who took Macomber’s place, also carried the ball for good gains off-tackle and around the ends. Falmouth had but one man, Frank, the giant full-back, who made a few substantial gains through the center of the line. FAIRHAVEN 27 — ABINGTON 0 Outplaying a much heavier Abington team all the way, the Blue Streak ran up its fifth straight win in its stadium November 6. [ 26 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Abington was probably the best team Fairhaven has met this year, having a well-balanced line and a shifty backfield. In the second half they opened up with a split formation that would have raised havoc with a less experienced team. Both Macombers, McGowan and Aiken showed up well for Fairhaven while Curtin and Clark played well for Abington. Girls ' Athletics Much interest in field hockey has been shown by the girls in all classes this season and a schedule of twelve inter-class games has been arranged. A hockey emblem will be awarded to the members of the class team who win the majority of games, and class numerals will be given to the girls who participate in the required number of games. Six of the games have been played with the following results in score.

His handsome young wife waited upon his every word and gesture. She had been a waitress before her marriage. But she was evidently greatly distressed as she murmured to herself, “I really shouldn’t have eaten so many lobsters and watermelons for lunch. And that last cabbage was a little too much for my delicate stomach.” Even as she said this and sighed, she calculated pensively the amount of money coming to her in event of the death of Lord Kale, her unfortu¬ nate husband who was dying from some mysterious disease. Lady Kale was in the midst of her thoughts when she was suddenly interrupted by a most terrific clanking and groaning accompanied by horrible screams and squawks. These noises grew steadily louder and more awful in addition to being interspersed with hideous shrieks and squeals of agony. Lady Kale turned so pale from fright that even her rouge hardly showed. She rushed to the window, looked out, and then drew a tre¬ mendous breath of relief. “Thank God!” she said. “It is only the doctor. I had forgotten that he drives a Ford now!” At these words the face of her husband brightened with hope but immediately darkened with despair once more, as he reflected that even if the doctor should cure him, the bill for doing so would ruin him. Lord Kale was only worth £200,000. In the meantime the front door was opened quickly, footsteps were heard in the corridor outside, and then Doctor Knockem entered the room. He was a tall, powerful man. He had been a horse doctor in his better days. His gloomy, melancholy countenance seemed to be cast in lines of suppressed satisfaction as he fixed his solemn gaze on the face of his victim. For a moment he surveyed him in silence, and then Lady Kale began to sob in dread of what sad message his words would convey. The doctor, however, merely removed a large piece of chewing tobacco from his mouth, and in three great strides was at the side of his victim. “Lord Kale,” he said in a deep, sonorous voice, which seemed to hint already of funeral ceremonies, “You are not sick. You are perfectly healthy except for one thing. You seem to have a combination of several (Concluded on page 33) r29] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Commercial Club O N Wednesday, October the sixth, the Commercial Club Seniors initiated the Juniors into the M. Y. O. B. Club. Each Junior was blindfolded and led by a Senior into the gymnasium. The screams and yells heard soon after, would have told you what fun (?) the Juniors were having. After going through numerous forms of torture, the Juniors were seated in a circle and each had a chance to perform. Then each one promised to live up to the shorthand pledge which is as follows: “I solemnly swear, By the hair of my head, To each night do my shorthand Before going to bed. I’ll not park under lamp posts, Or sit on a stone wall, For the next day in Class My shorthand will fall.” Ice Cream and cookies were served and dancing followed. The next party will be at Christmas. Several changes have been made in the Commercial Department. Miss Russell is the head of the Department, with Miss Freeman and Miss Griswold as assistants. The system of Shorthand has also been changed. This year’s Senior Class will be the last class to use the Chandler method. The Gregg System is now being used.

Soon we were disappearing behind the porter’s lodge into the narrow corridors painted dull blue and reddish brown. In the center of the courtyard a few chestnut trees were planted and there we formed chatter¬ ing groups where we laughed and planned tricks while awaiting the hour for classes to begin. We never walked alone or two together; that was forbidden, we were always in groups of at least three. Two strokes of the bell! As we were in the upper class, we were allowed to enter the classrooms as we pleased; all the other pupils had to form in line. But in every classroom we were forbidden to speak. The strict observation of this rule was assured by a per sonage who was the object of our scorn and hatred, and who is called in the scholars’ language, “the pion”, meaning, “the usher”, or “policeman.” We thought that only a person good for nothing else would be willing to act as policeman. But what pleasure was ours when we succeeded in escaping his vigilance and in speaking on the way from the courtyard to classes, without being caught. We threw ourselves into this game with a veritable passion and the policeman who was supposed to keep the school gloomy, changed it into an abode of little imps. From half-past eight till half-past eleven it is not exaggerating to say that we were travelling in an enchanted country. From hour to hour in the classes, the professors, men and women, who came there, used so much imagination that the mornings always passed too quickly for our liking. However, no kind of intimacy existed between us, pupils and professors; no relation outside that of the classroom; we never visited them at their homes and at school it would have appeared to them out of place and improper to have a few minutes’ conversation with us on a subject other than that on the programme. There were only fifteen or twenty of us pupils, but the rule that made us stand up at the arrival or departure of the professors put a barrier between us and them. At noon, the boarders went to the dining-hall and the others went to their homes for lunch. We had an hour to eat lunch and still another [ 32 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN hour to prepare or look over what we had not had time to do the day before. From two o’clock till five o’clock, more classes; then we returned home with a bag full of books under our arms and with notebooks that showed work for several hours. At ten or eleven o’clock we were often found engrossed in our work or sleeping, pen in hand. Thursday, the holiday, we were scarcely able to allow ourselves more than two hour’s liberty and Sunday the same. The school programme did not permit more and it was almost impossible to divert our attention for a few minutes outside of school hours. Examinations ended, a part of the girls married, others took situa¬ tions, others continued their studies, leading the same monotonous and serious life which should contradict the reputation for frivolity that is given to us. We did not know how to amuse ourselves and even now know very little about amusement. That is why the French girls like the American schools so much; schools where they know how to laugh and live but where they work—let us rejoice at this—a little less than at home. Edith G. Kenny, ’27 (■Concluded from page 29) minor ailments, mere trifles, such as stiffening of the veins, hardening of the arteries, softening of the brain, protuberance of the chest, contraction of the liver, and cold feet. Outside of these trivial things you are in good health and you should recover providing you do not die. I should advise absolute rest and vigorous exercise. That is all I have to say to you to-day. I will send the bill for my services tomorrow.” And so saying, Doctor Knockem left the room, slamming the door so violently that a large picture which hung over the bed, fell and struck the head of Lord Kale with such force that he immediately died after shrieking with his last breath, “I’m framed!” Thus ends my sad story of the fate of Lord Kale and I hope that all will perceive the moral it does not contain. George M. Cook, ’27 f 33 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Music Appreciation I N the study of Music Appreciation we have taken up the growth of music from the earliest times to the period in history when Rome was at its greatest height in power and culture. We have also noted the de¬ velopment of the organ from the simple river-reed instrument known as Pan’s Pipe to the Chinese sheng and hydraulic.. The Birth of Christ changed music from Pagan to Christian; and when Constantine embraced Christianity the early Christians were no longer obliged to worship in the Catacombs. Magnificent cathedrals and churches took their places and organs and trained choirs were established within them. In our “listening lessons” we have had various selections played on the victrola such as “Traumerei” by Schumann, “Melody in A. Major” by our vice-president, Dawes, and the “Melody in F” by Rubinstein. In these compositions we have learned to recognize an “Introduction” which is a preparation for what is to follow, the “Cadenza”, an instrumental or vocal flourish which usually serves as a connecting link between move¬ ments, and last of all, the “Coda” or ending, which is more or less elaborate. Sometimes it consists of chords in various positions, and sometimes it contains fragments of the principal melody. It is true that all compositions do not contain any of these three mentioned. They are not necessary, but merely serve as an added attraction. Doris Diggle, ’29 [34] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Model Boat Building M ODEL boat building usually leads to a more general and better un¬ derstanding of naval and marine construction. One cannot but think of larger ships and make comparisons as he works on his model. This science has already passed beyond the stage of the amateur, and reached the point where it may be called a well organized science with regular club houses and ponds made for model viewing. The boats are constructed according to the “bread and butter” or form method. In each of these methods plans are taken from a model. The latter often is found to be unique designs of the builder’s own. A very successful boat can be turned out by an inexperienced person if he carefully follows his plans, and a great deal of pleasure may be derived from both the making and sailing of a well-made boat. Our advanced classes are building a few larger boats, while the fresh¬ man divisions are building a twenty-four inch model with a Marconi rig. Arthur B. Coe, ’28 Model Boats Made in Manual Training Department [35] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Jane’s Opportunity O H MOTHER,” cried Jane, “Eve had the loveliest time in sewing today. Since I’ve been absent the girls have begun sewing. Some have finished their first garment and commenced their second one.” “You’ll have to hurry to catch up,” answered Mother. “Yes, I will, but my teacher is willing to help me after school. Vivian has made the sweetest kimona. It is lavender trimmed with light pink, and is made after the japanese style. Catherine is making a light blue night-gown and Grace is making a set of underwear.” “What would you like to make?” questioned Mother. “Oh, I’d like to make a night-gown to wear when I visit cousin Louise. I saw a cute pattern in the last ‘Vogue Quarterly’.” “Why don’t you make it of pale yellow? It is becoming and matches your kimona,” suggested Mother. “That would be fine. When can I get the material? Miss Gifford wants me to start as soon as possible.” “Get it when you go over for your lesson.” “That’s great! I’m going to learn how to use the machine too.” “You know, Jane, when I went to school, sewing was not taught. I hope you will make good use of your opportunity. It will help me so much when you are able to make some of your own clothes.” Caroline G.

[ 36 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Cooking H AVE you ever thought of the process by which we preserve fruit, and the reason why? Every autumn many of the housewives pre¬ serve jars of fruit. I wonder if they know the reason why it will keep good for so long a time. Preserving is often done because every one else does it. Preserving, done perfectly, is a science. There are two methods of preserving. One is the Cold Pack Method and the other is the Open Kettle Method. Many people of today prefer the Cold Pack Method which saves time and alsoi is very economical. One does not need to use as much sugar and the fruit is not broken so easily. In this method the fruit and jars are sterilized at the same time. The fruit is packed into the jar and a syrup is added. Then the rubber ring and cover are put on, fastened by one wire. This is done because the steam must have a place to escape. After it has cooked the required length of time the jar is removed from the water and the second clamp-is fastened. The jar is now air-tight. If berries are preserved by this method it is sometimes necessary to remove seeds from the rubber-band before the jar is made air-tight. Not until I entered the cooking class of this High School did I under¬ stand why we preserve fruit and the process by which it is done. Pm sure all the pupils have found it a very interesting subject. Priscilla Wrightington, ’28 Surprised As I was standing beside a lake, I heard a little rattle-snake; And when I saw the son-of-a-gun, I turned on my heel and up an’ run. Marjorie S. Howe, ’28 THE HUTTLESTONIAN General Science W ITH Fire Prevention Week came some interesting work in Gen¬ eral Science. Many experiments were tried out in class, and an unusually interesting one was the operation of a fire extinguisher. Two members of the class made a miniature fire extinguisher using the same chemicals and operating it in the same way in which the well known fire extinguisher is operated. A small fire was made by burning a piece of paper in an agate pan and the fire extinguisher used to extinguish it. This demonstration before the class proved very successful in showing the class how to operate it correctly. The regular size fire extinguisher is made up of a strong metal cylinder nearly filled with a solution of baking soda. Firmly fixed in the top of this cylinder is a bottle half filled with sulphuric acid. There is an opening in the top of the cylinder to which is attached a rubber tube with a nozzel. When the extinguisher is inverted, the solution of baking soda mingles with the acid and rapidly generates carbon dioxide. The pressure of the gas forces the solution out of the nozzel and onto the fire. Carelessness is one of the chief causes of fire. Follow the suggestions below and the loss by fire will be greatly diminished. Do not leave around accumulations of oily and dirty rags. Do not store hay before it is thoroughly dried. Do not leave newspapers and magazines in a dark unventilated place. Do not allow leaves to remain in a protected nook. Do not leave a campfire until the last spark is extinguished and the ground about it has been thoroughly drenched with water. Evelyn Broadbent, ’30 [38] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Sesqui-Centennial S INCE 1926 is the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, it is fittingly observed by an exposition in Philadelphia, called the “Sesqui- Centennial.” This exposition opened June first and is to remain open until December first. The Mayor of Phila¬ delphia, the Hon. W. F. Kendrick is the chief executive of this celebration. Although the cost of the buildings has been very great, the stadium, I believe, is the only one that will be permanent. The Liberty Bell, which is of so much interest to us all, is not on the “Sesqui” grounds but in Independence Hall with which it has always been associated. Broad Street leading to the “Sesqui”, is arrayed with the flags of all the states and countries. For many miles, as you approach the main en¬ trance, you can see the huge imitation Liberty Bell extending across the street. It is studded with red, white and blue electric lights, which makes a wonderful sight at night. Immediately within the main entrance, on the right, is a huge audi¬ torium containing the largest pipe organ in the world. There are thousands of seats in this building and each day concerts are given by noted organists and orchestras. To rest here after travelling over the extensive grounds is to find pleasure and inspiration. Opposite this auditorium is the building of Liberal Arts and Manu¬ facturers containing exhibits from all the countries of the world, and many concerns and types of business have their displays. Ihe Japanese and Danish exhibits were unusually attractive as the colors blend and harmonize so well. The miniature pearl palace from Japan was wonderful. The A P store seemed homelike, as did the meat market. 1 he foreign clerks were anxious to sell their wares and among these articles I was surprised to find scarfs just like those to be had in New Bedford. The Pennsylvania Building impressed me as the most beautiful of all. There seemed to be a violet atmosphere in the central portion of this build- [39] THE HUTTLESTONIAN ing. The walls are pink and the weird and uncanny effect was produced by the sun shining thro ugh the skillfully arranged stained glass in the dome. Liberty Bells brought from many towns and various types of old fashioned implements were in one wing of this building; in the other were health exhibits and what the State is trying to do in this line. Along the “Gladway” were numerous booths and ice cream parlors and such amusements as one can patronize at home any time. The souvenir seller was much in evidence. I hastily passed through the Education Building for there was so much to see that I could not study everything very thoroughly. After looking at things a long time the mind becomes numb and you feel you are not able to appreciate anything more. The United States Government Building I liked the best. It had displays of Machinery and things pertaining to Mines and Metallurgy. A money-coining machine from the United States Mint attracted much attention, as did another machine stamping Liberty Bells upon handker¬ chiefs. Some visitors seemed to be more interested in souvenirs than the finest of the artistic exhibits. This building contained small and intri¬ cate machinery as well as the largest of presses, and even airplanes. There were fish and everything pertaining to fish. An exhibition of grains and the various stages of their development was very interesting. I found this the most instructive department of the exposition. There were too many things to appreciate them all, and time forbade me to linger long, but these which I have mentioned, with the replicas of Mount Vernon and Washington’s ancestral home in England, are the most outstanding in my mind. The Exposition as a whole was interesting and instructive although unfinished. The grounds were attractive with flowers and shrubbery, fountains lagoons, and very powerful searchlights causing beautiful reflec¬ tions. The total impression I will never forget although the memory of many details will soon fade. Miriam I. Owen, ’28 THE HUTTLESTONIAN A banquet was held at the High School hy the Fairhaven Union Teachers’ Associa¬ tion in November. Mr. George H. Tripp was the speaker of the evening. The Faculty program for the remainder of the calendar year includes a Christmas party and a concert by the Bowdoin College Glee Club. The University Extension Courses in “Musical Appreciation” under the direction of Miss Bakeman of Boston, and in “Modern American Literature” under the direction of Professor Rogers of Boston University are attracting a number of the teachers. Word has been received that courses in “Modern French” and “Contemporary Literature” are to be offered early in the new year. S INCE the opening of school in Septem¬ ber the Faculty have been especially active. Early in the month the Fairhaven Union Teachers’ Association gathered at Mary’s Pond for a “Bean Frolic”. It was a splendid opportunity for making the acquaintance of the teachers who had joined our force during the summer. THE HUTTLESTONIAN Even-tide I sat in the dusk at twilight, With many grey shadows about. I watched all the grey become black night, And all the bright stars come out. I knew not that I was cold; Astronomy held me awed. The heavens were bright, and bold New codes quickly flashed abroad. Then I with a shiver turned homeward, But on me a spell had been cast. So glancing again to the heav’nward, I saw the moon rising fast. The moon rose majestic’lly upward, The stars seemed to shine with pride; The ones that were bad fell downward, The rest on the moonbeams could ride. Thais B. Maxfield, ’26 AUTUMN’S BETROTHAL From out the north a trumpet sounds That swirls the autumn leaves aground Leaving the trees stand gaunt and cold Weaving a tapestry of gold. Chorus of birds chirping farewell Winging southward where blossoms dwell. Dew of the evening, diamond mist Frosts hill and dale where winter kist Down thro’ the pines sifts cold moonlight As purple shadows pilot night Winter’s troth with autumn plighted The seasons soon will be united. Helen Martin, ’28. [42] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Exchanges Received Since September THE PILGRIM THE PLYMOUTH HIGH SCHOOL, PLYMOUTH, MASS. “The Pilgrim” is set up in the; best form for a small school periodical. The magazine is more attractive with the adds at the end and a clean beginning when you open the hook. The two cuts heading the editorial and literary pages are good. Why not have the artist draw others to head other departments? The cover is neat and carries a pleasing design. The athletic department has two good articles but not much space given to accounts of the games and the meets participated in. Remember that a critic will always look first to the thing of interest to him, and as this exchange editor was interested in athletics he was disappointed in finding less than he expected. THE ALPHA NEW BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL, NEW BEDFORD, MASS. I mean two things when I say that it’s the same old Alpha! First, that it’s the same well edited magazine from across the river and second that it’s the same “Alpha”. You have a big school. Get it to contribute and help the “Alpha” out. Don’t let the staff work it’s head off. Have everyone chip in, each with his specialty. Put more originality in the liter¬ ary department. I envy all those ads, but they could carry a bigger more extensive book. The class history and the prophesies are the best read in two or three years. THE QUARTERLY STAMFORD HIGH SCHOOL, STAMFORD, CONN. A very complete magazine edited by a complete staff. Your wood cuts are well designed. Every department is well represented and you deserve much credit for their treatment. We congratulate you on your fine editorial staff and the fine school spirit backing the publication. Many larger schools cannot get out such a creditable book. I like the two styles of paper used, and the photographs on the heavier paper. THE HANOVERIAN HANOVER HIGH SCHOOL, HANOVER, MASS. You have one of the most complete and best edited athletic sections of any school magazine. All your photos are good. Don’t have it look too much like the “Saturday Evening Post” with the ads every other page. This makes reading hard and the stories less appreciated. our cover is well drawn and neat but try a heavy design or drawing next time. I would suggest either change the color or extend the design. [43] THE HUTTLESTONIAN THE RADIATOR THE HIGH SCHOOL, SOMERVILLE, MASS. Your exchange criticisms touch on the lack of school news in other school periodicals, and after reading your magazine I find that you have sufficient cause to criticise thusly. The October “Radiator” glows with school news — a real energetic early school year issue. We enjoyed reading the “Who’s Who” in the teachers’ staff. It show s a strain of news not prevalent in ordinary school papers. The literary department is fortunate in having Miss Alice Dunlap’s story and poem, for they are in class A. We still find some difficulty in handling “The Radiator” for it folds too easily, and is not firm enough to handle comfortably. THE DIAL BRATTLEBORO HIGH SCHOOL, BRATTLEBORO, VERMONT It would be more uniform since your pages are so large, if each de¬ partment took up one page—beginning and ending on the same page. You have two splendid editorials on page seven! In reading your “School Notes” I was interested in the account of the debate at the football rally of September 24. You have a very complete Alumni page. I don’t like the .Table of Contents hidden way over on page 17, nor do I think the ads in the back of “The Dial” attractive packed in as they are, one after the other. I do enjoy your History and Science Departments. They are well edited. THE HARPOON (June 1926) DARTMOUTH HIGH SCHOOL, DARTMOUTH, MASS. We’d first like to comment on the pleasing appearance of “The Harpoon,” and the good printing job. All the photos are good. It’s the most complete, well formed, well edited, smaller high school magazine that we’ve received this year. We find something different, in that, you have put the editorial department after the literary department and not before it. You have also a very complete athletic write-up. Your little page intro¬ duces the book to the reader better than any “Foreward” or “Dedication.” THE HUTTLESTONIAN Control ( Editor’s Note: This story, written by Gordon MacKay, one of our 1926-1927 Post Graduate students zvas taken from u The Rcviczv” of the Lowell High School). Far up in the hills the windows of a little cabin danced with light. The doctor and his hunting companion were discussing, between long puffs of their pipes, just to what ex¬ tent a man controlled his mind. “Now,” said the doctor, “in Poe’s story a man was looking thru a window at a distant mountain summit. On account of the distance his visual angle was small. Across the window and into his line of vision crept a tiny bug. Thinking this insect to be on the peak of the mountain, the man’s mind constructed it in proportion to the mountain. In great excitement he reported having seen a creature as large as a Sphinx.” “My dear fellow,” replied the other, “that is absurd. No one in his right mind could have been so misled. If he lacked the power of deductive reasoning, common sense would have shown him the folly of it all.” “But,” argued the doctor, “one can’t always regulate the action of the mind. One of the crudest tortures of the Spanish Inquisition was to strap the prisoner in a great chair, and from above let fall a drop of water on the prisoner’s head every half minute. The blow itself was nothing, but the expectancy and tension of waiting for it shattered the strong man’s nerves in a short time.” “What a weak lot they were,” scoffed his friend. “All they had to do was to take hold of themselves and say, “Now look here, this thing can’t hurt me. I am going to just sit here and not think of it.” “Yes,” said the doctor, “a splendid theory. But let’s go to bed now if we want to bring down all the birds Don is going to flush tomorrow.” As he mounted to his cot in the loft, he heard his friend fixing his bed near the fireplace. “Here, Don old boy,” called his friend as he patted the bed clothes. “You’re not going to let Don sleep with you?” asked the doctor. “Surely! Why not? He’s the biggest part of our outfit, I guess. Well, pleasant dreams of the uncontrollable subconscious, Doc.” In a few minutes the lamps were blown out, the fire died down and they slept. A thud pulled the Doctor out of his sleep; a scream tore away his lethargy. Hastily he lighted a lantern and fairly fell down from the loft. Once down he saw a terrifying scene being enacted before him. Over and [45] THE HUTTLESTONIAN over on the floor his friend was rolling, swinging his arms and beating the empty air as if engaged in a rough and tumble fight. The dog stood barking furiously. All this time the man was shouting like a madman. “My dear friend,” cried the doctor in alarm, “what in heaven’s name is the matter?” “For God’s sake, doctor take this thing off me! It’s pounding on my head like an elephant, and I can’t even touch it with my hands!” His face contracted in terror and he bent his head as if under repeated blows. Roughly the doctor shook him. “Get control of yourself, man! There is nothing in this room except the dog and ourselves.” “I can’t hear, I can’t hear! It’s pounding on my ear like a sledge hammer. My God, I’ll go mad! Help me! Help me!” In a new frenzy he jumped up and ran about the room crazily, then, wrapping his arms about his imaginary enemy but clasping nothing but empty air he fell writhing on the bed. Completely exhausted his mind gave way, and unconsciousness calmed his ravings. The doctor looked at him fearfully. Outside the ring of lantern light there was just enough cold moon to make everything an uncertainty. Don’s cold nose startled him, as the dog rubbed him and whined up in bewilder¬ ment. What a position this was, alone in the mountains with a madman. He shivered without shame. His brain grew cold, but with a professional manner he opened his kit and began to examine his friend. Adjusting his ophthalmoscope, he brought the lantern nearer. A pounding in the ear! There was nothing in the left ear. But as he bent over the right he heard a faint buzzing. The concave mirror threw in light, so that down in the ear drum he saw something he managed to remove with a pair of tiny tweezers. Holding it out in the light he mused thus, “Ah, so this is control of mind. I am afraid, my scoffing friend, that Don has put a flea in your ear.” [46] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Columbus and the Flood of Colonists Lo, he has opened a hole in the dam, His discovery has battered down the dam of darkness. A trickle of water seeps through the break, Then a mighty flood seeps over the fallen, barricade. It is stopped by nature’s barrier. A mighty mountain range. But no, a tiny stream fights it way through a crevice, And another onward rush of the turbulent, blood-red sea Over whelms the strife stricken red-men. This crimson colored ocean has reached the innermost recesses of the land. The maroon dye slowly sinks to oblivion, And leaves a shining mirror surfaced lake. Charles A.

Con¬ sequently, two of our class, not to be outdone by the undergraduates found that it was necessary to have their appendix removed. However we are glad to say that Jeanette Demers is now able to continue her P. G. course, and that “Brad” Blossom will soon be able to continue with his music. “Brad” and Clarence are taking private lessons this year in New Bedford. Of course we were not surprised to hear of the wonderful record our valedictorian, “Pat” Avery is making at Smith. Nevertheless, that does not deter from our pride in her. Sydney Burrell, too, is making good at Harvard. As “Pat” due to her rank in exams at college did not have to take freshman French or English, and Sydney did not have to take English, it certainly speaks well for the heads of those two departments.

The conception of school man¬ agement is changing from the autocratic to the democratic idea. In other words there is a strong feeling throughout the field of education that the pupils of an educational institution should have an opportu¬ nity to express their ideas, preferences, et cetera, through a repre¬ sentative body.” 0. “What has caused such a change in feeling?” A. “The idea that in order to train boys and girls to be efficient citizens of a democracy, the school must be a place for them to prac¬ tice democracy.” 0. “Oh I see. The school is or should be a miniature community with the pupils acting as citizens of that community. But if this is true, why not let the pupils run the school altogether rather than in a limited way?” A. “That is a perfectly logical question. Many of the problems of a school are such that their solutions require mature and expert judgment, not characteristic of boys and girls of high school age. It has been almost universally found true that where too much participation in school management has been permitted pupils, the whole idea has failed. That is why we are trying this experiment cautiously in our school.” 0. “I have just begun to get an insight into the matter, Mr. Dickey, and would like to know now what has been accomplished so far by the students. Our time is up, however, and the space allotted this interview is fille d.” A. “Well, we can probably talk again about these points.” THE HUTTLESTONIAN Getting Advertisements for “The Hnttlestonian” ETTING “ads” is really quite a bit of work and one begins to know human nature when one asks for money. I am going to re¬ late my first experience in this work. On entering the first store on my list, I asked one of the clerks to direct me to the manager. While I was waiting, I began to think what I was going to say. Suddenly out of my thoughts came a pleas¬ ant voice. “What can I do for you, young lady?” I answered that I represented the Fairhaven High School and that I was soliciting ad¬ vertisements for the school magazine. I stated that I knew he had “ads” in previous numbers of our magazine and wished to know if he cared to renew them. I showed him our latest issue with his “ad”. I also suggested that he might take a larger “ad” this time and showed him some larger ones in the magazine. The manager glanced quickly over the book and then looking with a quizzical expression asked, “What high school did you say?” I repeated. “Why the Fairhaven High School across the river.” The manager feigned surprise and said, “Why I never heard of such a place.” By this time I had caught the glimmer of amusement in his eyes and answered quickly, “Oh, surely, sir, all New Bedforders know the little high school across the river with the big football team !” At this everyone in the office laughed. After that we got down to business and soon I received an order for a larger advertisement. I left the store greatly encouraged by my first success. Would that it were always as pleasant and easy as that! MARY S. TOLEDO, ’26 THE HUTTLESTONIAN The (hook Who Was Crooked S ULES LE ROUX set foot on the shores of America with great joy in his heart. Here was a free country; a country where all men rich and poor were on the same level. Now the gendarmes could no longer lock him up for stealing a paltry sum of ten thousand francs. He was a free man; free to rob, plunder, and murder at will. “Vive L’ Amerique !” cried Jules as the Statue of Liberty came in view. Such were the impressions Jules Le Roux, master criminal, had concerning America. By assuming the name of Marc Pelletier and stating that his occupation was that of a tailor, Le Roux successfully evaded the intricate demands of the immigration officials at Ellis Island. At first Jules himself marveled at the facility with which he gained entrance, but arrived at the conclusion that the Americans knew only his deeds. To them Jules Le Roux was a petty thief compared with Chapman, the clever American crook. Yet he, Jules Le Roux, would show them; they would learn to respect him even as they did Chapman. Yes, a Frenchman was not to be despised; even Chapman was of French descent. As he edged his way through the huge throng gathered at the dock, he was met by a neatly dressed young man with blue eyes and a thick crop of blond hair protruding in places from under his “Stetson”. This gentleman’s features were pleasant to look upon and at an “Atlantic City Pageant” for the male sex, he might have carried off first honors. Speaking in a sauve tone he addressed Jules thus: “Mr. Le Roux, I have a very fine proposition to make to you.” “Nom du nom, " replied Jules, “Comment you savvy my name. Maybe you mon ami, eh bien, you show me beaucoup money for to swipe. Jules Le Roux he ees one beeg, what you call heem—yegg.” “Some crook, Jules,” murmured he of the blond hair sarcastically. “No, Jules, you’ve got to turn over a new leaf. Maybe you think you can get away with anything in America. You’re wrong. If you expect the shekels to turn in fast, I advise you to go into real estate. For instance, there’s a nice building over there,” and the suave Adonis pointed to the tower of the Woolworth building rising in the distance. “How’s that? Seeing it’s you I’ll let you have that build¬ ing for five thousand smackers. Think of the cash that will bring you, good steady silver, too.” THE HUTT LEST ONI AN Jules meditated; he had no intention of giving up his criminal pursuits but the offer appealed to him. Fortunately one of his vic¬ tims had been an American tourist and, therefore, Jules had quite a rich supply of Uncle Sam’s dollars. But five thousand dollars was too much. Jules was no easy mark; did the man expect Jules to hand over the money as his American friends did? Well, if he did he was one beeg fool. ‘‘Five thousand, she too much. I give you twenty-five hundred for heem,” and Jules waved his hand majestically towards the sky¬ scraper in question. Jules was surprised at the alacrity with which the American accepted his offer, and after placing in his advisor’s waiting palm the needed sum, he left the building with the deed of his property, feeling very exultant over his purchase. Arriving at Mr. W oolworth’s lofty monument to himself, he entered the street floor. He found himself in a large store. As the things on the counters looked attractive to him, he proceeded to help himself to numerous articles which he desired. He had just picked up a gleam¬ ing stick pin when he felt a slight tap on his shoulder. Looking around, he saw a blue coated officer threatening him and ordering him to put back his collection of trinkets. Jules gasped in amaze¬ ment. So there were gendarmes in America ! “Sir,” said Jules haughtily, “what for you touch me? This ees my property for which I pay much money. This store, she mine ; you no can arrest me,” and Jules concluded with a gesture to emphasize his innocence. “Sorry.” replied the officer of the law, “somebody’s swindled you.” And the policeman courteously helped Jules to the door with a well aimed “coup de pied”. As Jules found himself thrust out into the crowded streets of New York, his first impulse was to pull out his trusty “revolvere” to shoot his tormentor, the American gendarme. But a second thought told him that the safer thing to do was to get the blond Adonis who had “duped” him. So Jules hired a boarding house for himself and with the aid of some of his underworld friends such as “Shorty” La Crosse, “Matty” Poisson and “Blazer” Berceau, all former presidents of fair France, he proceeded to comb the underworld in search of the blue-eyed “con man”. Though he hunted for weeks nothing could be found of his real estate advisor. He of the blond hair evidently knew and respected Jule’s reputation. [ 15 1 THE HUTTLESTONIAN Meanwhile Jack Doyle was living a life of ease in his fine Brooklyn home. The underworld knew him not as Jack Doyle but as Shadow Larson, safe-breaker de-luxe ; a man who left no other trace behind him than a sarcastic letter stamped with the signature “The Shadow”. In this domain, folks knew this “Shadow” not as the dapper Jack Doyle but as a poverty stricken artist, who made vain attempts at art in the daytime and at night pursued more successfully the trade of a “yegg”; a man whom they hardly ever saw but whom they both admired and respected. So it happened that though Jules and his friends searched far and wide they were unable to find any trace of the man upon whom Jules had sworn vengeance. How could anyone suspect that “Shadow” Larson had turned “con man” when there was usually a much better reward and less danger of being detected in his present business? And Jack Doyle, a pampered son of the rich, would certainly not stoop to such a means of acquiring money. Now all this time, Jules had had foremost in his mind a desire to accomplish the deeds which he intended to do on coming to the promised land, and which he had been compelled to set aside on account of his search for the clever swindler, who had met him upon his arrival. More over, his funds were getting low and Jules who had never earned an honest “sou” in his life was therefore unable to stick to a legitimate business such as real-estate. Hence, one foggy night found him approaching the Brooklyn residence of Jack Doyle, heir to the immense fortunes of Martin Doyle, a power on Wall Street. Jack Doyle’s safe was known to contain a vast sum of money and many valuable jewels. His friend “Blazer” Berceau a noted “fence” would be able to dispose of the jewels easily enough. After a careful investigation of the premises, Jules entered the house via the parlor window. Cautiously he made his way into Jack’s study where the safe was known to be located, and after a quick examination of the safe, he began to work upon the combination aided by his tools. Before long, the ponderous door swung open and Jules eagerly began to strip the safe of its contents. As he knelt, fingering greedily a roll of bills he had chanced upon, he uttered a crv of amazement. Those bills were straneelv familiar. He was sure (Continucd on page 33) 116 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN S HE social calendar since the last issue of “The Huttlestonian” has been a full one. Among our speakers have been Dr. Tingley, who spoke enthusiastically on his travels in Alaska; Mrs. Shockley, who introduced Burton Holmes and his illustrated lecture on Rome; Mr. Tripp, who lectured on the town of Dartmouth ; Mr. Webster, who entertained us with a talk on “Salesmanship” and inci¬ dentally helped us to increase the “Huttlesto¬ nian Scholarship Loan Fund” by interesting the school in getting subscriptions for “The Woman’s Home Companion,” “The Ameri¬ can,” “Colliers” and “The Mentor”; Mr. Ranlett, librarian at Millicent Library, whose subject “How An Editor Looks at Stories” proved interesting not only to the Literary Club but to the student-body and faculty as well, and Mr. Tallman, who recently gave an instructive talk on “Architecture.” In addition to the lectures there have been musical programs furnished by Dr. Thompson and Mr. Pauli and by the Junior and Senior assemblies, and a debate—“Resolved That The United States Should have A Separate Air Department” offered as a Sophomore contri¬ bution. The Seniors have had two evening dances, and a combination Colby Glee Club Concert and Dance sponsored by The Fairhaven Teachers’ Association—was an attraction for all. The play “The Road To Yesterday” was most successfully produced. EVELYN M.

It is extre mely simple.” Slocum: “So are we.” Miss Mackie : “How is it possible to know when a microbe enters the body?” Holland: “You can see ’em coming, of course.” Mr. Staples: “What was the presi¬ dent’s name in 1903?” Class: “Roosevelt.” Mr. Staples: “Wrong, it w r as Cool- idge.” Cheerleader Cieurzo: “Come on Dutton, you’re not making a bit of noise.” Voice in assembly: “For the first time in history.” We wonder : If we could interest Mr. Pidgeon in a bottle of hair tonic.

Slocum, blushing furiously: “Oh, Miss Gifford, I really think that the best I deserve is a ‘D’. I don’t ever do any home work, and I am continually talking in class and don’t ever pay any attention to what you say. In fact, I lost my French book four months ago. Coming down to facts, I think the most you ought to do for me is to give me an ‘E’.” Miss Gifford: “Oh! Everett, you are so modest that less than an ‘A’ would be an insult to you.” Miss Heald : “It is impossible to loaf and to work at the same time.” Simmons: " Pardon me, but don’t they loaf and work at the same time in a bakery?” rHE H UTT LE STONI AN Mrs. Dodge: “What happened after this event?” Tom Perry: “After what event?” Mrs. Dodge: (indefinitely) “Why after such and such an event.” Tom Perry: (wisely) “Such and such a thing happened.” Mr. Erickson, after giving out the last of his twenty-five topics : “That’s all.” Ruth Bedford : “I haven’t any topic, Mr. Erickson.” Mr. Erickson: “All right, you can take the twenty-sixth topic, ‘Where Does the White Go When the Snow Melts?’” M iss Bettencourt, describing use of microscope in the biology class: “Place your object on the stage and cover it with a small round glass square.” Bartlett, in his special report: “The Americans pushed forward with dog determination and fought for every foot on the ground.” Miss Gifford: “Pomme means apple.

THE H UTT LEST ONI AN Tilings that Interest Me THERE are many things which are very interesting, but what interests me the most is sports. I just love basketball in spite of its wood-burns and other bumps. It’s just great to play a couple of sets of tennis on a summer’s evening. Try it sometime! Play until the moon comes up, with a cool breeze blowing. You will soon realize one lovely side of nature that you have been missing. Run out onto the girl’s hockey field some day when the wind is blowing a gale. Indulge in a fast game of hockey, and it sure will liven you up. Stand watching a football game, with the rain coming down in sheets, something like it did the day of the Framingham game. You won’t notice the water running down your neck and into your shoes, if you are really interested in the game. It sounds very uncom¬ fortable, but it’s ' life if you only knew it. Walking is great fun if you like it. It gives you rosy cheeks, a good appetite, and makes you feel light and airy. Thus sports have their value both morally and physically. MILDRED O. PARKINSON,’26 My Dog HAT is there in a dog which makes him the companionable old XHt soul that he is? When I think of my dumb friend, I know he possesses the emotions, the likes, dislikes, and tastes of people. I also like to think that my dog is closely allied to me in thought and action though he cannot tell me. The sudden use of his ears and wag of his tail when I put foot on the doorstep; isn’t that suffi¬ cient to tell of this dumb animal’s capacity for love of his master? It is this love for me that is our language. What tongue in the wide world is sweeter! His eyes, the acme of intelligence, are our in¬ termediary. For all of this my dog is human—he does not like a bath. ALFRED ANDREWS, ’26 THE HUTTLESTONIAN That Boat of Ours She was proud That boat of ours. She lifted her massive bowsprit High into the air, fresh washed with spray. She waved her snow-white canvas Madly when brought about Against her will. She sailed through the jaded waters As though possessed of some unseen power Which bore her, like some fairy chariot Gliding noiselessly over d ewy grass. Her keel churned the water Into myriads of foamy bubbles Which danced and leapt Only to return to the depths again Shattered ! We were proud of her That boat of ours. She meant life to us Standing for the force that carries us On thru seas both calm and rough Yet always bearing onward thru depths Unseen, to calm and harbour out beyond. ELIZABETH C. JOHNSON, ’25 [ 24 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Just Another One of Those Trips CHOOL had closed for the summer and I was glad of it because S ' Bill and I were going on a trip to Maine. We had decided on this months before and had made our plans accordingly. At first Bill had wanted to tour thru Canada, spend a few weeks at the North Pole, and visit the Eskimos in Alaska on our way back. I was able to persuade him, however, that such a trip might be a bit too strenuous so we compromised on Maine. The next question was as to how we would get there. Bill suggested that we buy an auto. With this in view we raised all available funds (most of it borrowed) and found we had just fifty-nine dollars and seventy-five cents. “Holy Smoke ! We can buy a ‘Packard’ with all this,” Bill said. “Well,” I said, “I ' ll leave the purchase of the auto to you. They’re selling second hand cars over at Bolton’s Garage so you can go over there and buy one this afternoon. I’ll get some groceries and camp¬ ing equipment and we can start tomorrow morning. Don’t forget to buy a good bus. We don’t w ant anything but the best, you know!” In this way we arranged things. Bill was to call for me with the auto early next morning so we could get a good start. That night I went to bed pleased with the thought that we would soon be on our way to Maine. It seemed only a few minutes after I had gone to sleep when I was awakened by a loud honking of an automobile horn. I got out of bed, glanced at the clock, which said five, and leaned out the bedroom win¬ dow. Sure enough it was Bill down by the front gate with the machine. I dressed quickly and went out. Bill sat proudly behind the steering wheel. “Ain’t she a beaut?” he asked admiringly. “And only cost fifty bucks !” I looked the auto over rather dubiously. It was a one seated roadster with the top missing, the wheels warped, the mudguard bent, and the windshield cracked. It did not take an expert mechanic to tell that it had already seen its best days. “What make is she. Bill?” I asked. “Nineteen fifteen Chevrolet,” Bill replied. “One of best cars made and speed demon too. It’s an easy two miles from my house to here and I made it in fifteen minutes flat. How’s that for travelin’?” [25] THE HUTTLESTONIAN “Wonderful!” I exclaimed in amazement. “We’ll be up in Maine and back again before we know it. By the way, Bill, what will we name this bus?” “Let ' s call her Richard, the Lionhearted,” Bill said. “That’s a good brave name for a lady.” And thus it was that our machine got its warlike name. “Well,” I said, “you’ll have to come in the house with me and help lug out the groceries and stuff, but don’t make any noise. There’s no need of waking up the rest of the family.” We put all the groceries and camping equipment in the back com¬ partment of the auto. The three or four bags that were left over were put in front with us. We finally got everything all placed and we climbed into the seat. I had a couple of bags under my feet and there was a rolled-up sleeping tent between Bill and me. The auto was crammed to the very limit. There wasn’t enough room left for a flea. “Nice roomy bus, ain’t it?” Bill remarked complacently as he got ready to start the engine. “Sure, plenty of room,” I replied sarcastically as I tried to fit my feet into a space about one inch square. My response, however, was lost in the noise of the engine. Bill shifted gears; “Richard, the Lionhearted” leaped forward convulsively, stopped suddenly and then picked up again and we chugged down the street and out of town. The first hill we came to almost proved our last one for Bill ambitiously tried to climb it in high. “Richard” literally staggered up the slight grade ! The engine knocked and the wheels groaned loudly. I thought we would never reach the top of that little slope but we finally did much to my relief. “She climbs hills nice and easy, don’t she?” asked Bill. I looked at him sharply but he seemed perfectly serious so I simply said, “Yes, she climbs ’em easy but you’d better shift into low the next time.” We now began to coast down the other side of the hill. The road was none too smooth at this point and “Richard” reacted accordingly. If I had thought the auto was about to expire in climbing the hill I now feared the old tub would surely fall to pieces going down. Slowly we gathered speed until we were going at what was a dizzy rate for “Richard”. The springs squeaked, the mudguards rattled, and the front wheels seemed about to part company with the back ones. I could hear chunks of metal knocking against each other somewhere inside of the machine. [ 26 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN “Humph,” thought I to myself, “ instead of naming this auto, “Richard” the Lionhearted” we should have called her “Richard the Ironhearted.” There is an end to everything, however, and at last we came to the bottom of the hill. “Richard” once more resumed her normal speed which was just about ten miles an hour. I now had time to examine and count the bumps and bruises I had received during our wild descent. “She coasted down that hill pretty smooth, didn’t she?” asked Bill with an air of pride. “Yes, she did,” I replied pleasantly but there was murder within my heart. “Guess we were going pretty near sixty all the way down,” Bill added complacently. “Just shows yuh what a good engine’ll do if yuh only give it a chance.” “Yes, that’s right,” I agreed, but all the time I was trying to figure out which way I would rather kill him, with an axe or just by strangling him to death. We were now on a stretch of fairly level road so Bill stepped on the gas in order to prove further to me what a fast machine we had. We were soon going at a tremendous speed (all of eighteen miles an hour.) But this was not accomplished without some protest from “Richard.” The eng ' ine started knocking so loudly that I almost for¬ got myself and said, “Come in.” “Hitting on all four now!” Bill exclaimed. “Yes,” I replied. “In fact, she’s fairly hammering on them.” “Rides like a bird, don’t she?’’ interrupted Bill. “Yes,” I said, “She rides like a bird all right. She’s off the ground a blamed sight more than she ' s on it.” But my pointed comments were in vain. Bill was so absorbed in the good qualities of that worthless old junk that he failed to grasp my sarcastic remarks. In fact, he really thought I was compliment¬ ing on his choice of such a nifty car. Once more my mind was en¬ grossed with the thought of violence. I had even gone so far as to pick out the exact spot where I would hit him, when something happened! We had started to make a turn in the road but the steering gear suddenly went wrong and Bill lost control of the car. Instead of making the turn we made the acquaintance of a tree which stood near the road. Head on we skidded into it. 1 had seen the collision THE HUTTLESTONIAN coming so I jumped out of the machine just before it struck the tree. I hit the ground forcibly and got up feeling rather shaky. Bill was still sitting in the driver’s seat, absolutely unhurt, while the front end of “Richard” was jammed against the tree. “Well, you lucky stiff!” I exclaimed, feeling virtuously aggra¬ vated because I had gotten the bump which ought to have been Bill’s by rights. We examined the auto and found it temporarily disabled. The hood was bent and the steering gear loose. “I can fix it so she’ll run pretty cpiick,” Bill said confidently. “The steering gear just needs a little tightening, that’s all.” He began rummaging around the back compartment of the auto. “Well, Ell be cussed!” he ejaculated. “I forgot to bring any wrenches along so you’ll have to stay here with the auto while I hoof it back to town and get some. It’s only five miles from here so I’ll be back in a couple of hours.” I assented to this plan and climbed into the auto, all prepared to take things easy while he walked back to town. The place was quiet and my thoughts wandered. Suddenly I was startled by the sound of crunching footsteps close behind me. I whirled in the seat only to find myself looking into the barrel of an anieent but serviceable looking revolver. The weapon was held by one of the toughest looking tramps I had ever seen. His hair was matted and his face was evidently unacquainted with the razor. His e} r es were hard and seemed to fit with the rest of his character. “All right, kid,” he said. “You can jump out and leave your little toy. Poppa ' ll take care of it for you.” Despite his facetious way of speaking I knew he meant what he said and I got out. The tramp put his revolver into his pocket, walked around to the front of the auto and with one heave of his powerful shoulders, pryed “Richard” loose from the tree. He then climbed into the auto, started the engine and threw in the clutch. To my surprise “Richard” began to move and the tramp backed her onto the road, shifted gears and then stepped on the gas. The auto gathered speed slowly, jolted up the road and so disappeared around the curve in a cloud of dust. It was with mixed feelings that I watched it depart. I was glad to get rid of it, but still in so doing I was losing my money. Bill was sure to be sore, and it was a long walk for us back to our town. These were sad thoughts, and I sat down under a nearby tree in order that I might better ponder them. My mighty mind was still [ 28 ] THE HUTTLESTONIAN wrestling with the problem when Bill returned an hour later. I hadn’t noticed his arrival until he got within a few yards of me. When I did look up I saw something that struck me as being funny. Bill was standing there, hot and grimy, holding a wrench that must have measured at least two feet in length. “Well. " he said, “by gum, but I’m tired. I had a devil of a time looking for a garage. Finally found a machine-shop though, and so got this wrench there. The blamed thing weighs fifteen pounds but it was the only adjustable wrench in the place. The darn miser that owns the shop made me put up my watch for security. Soon’s we fix the bus we’ll take back the wrench. Say, where’s the auto, an v way ?” Suddenly the full humour of the situation occurred to me. Here was poor Bill who had lugged a fifteen pound wrench the distance of four miles, under a hot sun in order to fix an auto that wasn’t there ! It was tragic in one way, but also very funny. I sat down by the roadway and laughed. In fact I laughed until my stomach ached and my legs were weak. Bill stood there looking at me with his mouth so open that you could have easily put a watermelon into it. “Say, " he demanded, “what’s the big joke? " I sobered myself and in strangled tones told him thus. “There isn’t any joke. Just a while ago a tramp came along, and stole “Richard " . I guess w r e won’t need the wrench, after all.’’ I had always thought Bill was a gentleman. He attended Sunday School regularly and was supposed to be of a fairly good moral character. But I am afraid that all this had not had the proper uplifting influence on him for he now commenced to swear. For fully five minutes Bill cussed in a manner that would have drawn the admiration of any sea captain, teamster or even of an army mule driver. His vocabulary was wonderful. His gestures were superb. His eloquence was reminiscent of Patrick Henry and the range and tone of his voice suggested Captain Kidd. His selection of adjectives was worthy of a language professor. It was a complete education just to listen to him. At last , however, he ran out of wind. “There now, Bill,” I consoled him, “you ought to be glad that we’ve got rid of the car. It never was any good.” Bill looked at me ferociously. When he spoke there was honest indignation and righteous wrath in his voice. “Sav,” he demanded belligerently, “Do you know that you’re talking about our auto! That was the smoothest running bus I’ve ever ridden in.” o [29] THE HUTTLESTONIAN Of course I could have come back with the snappy reply that no doubt he had never ridden in an auto before, but I didn’t, for the least said the better. Silence reigned for a moment. “Well,” I said, “We can ' t stay here all day. We might as well beat it back to town.” Bill’s only reply was a grunt, but we started walking back along the road, Bill still carrying in his hand the wrench. We had travelled about two miles when after making a turn in our path we almost bumped into our auto. “Richard” was in the middle of the roadway and had evidently been abandoned by our friend the tramp. Bill was overjoyed, but I wasn’t. I had been secretly com¬ plimenting myself because we had gotten rid of the junk, but here it was back again. Bill climbed into the driver’s seat and as he did so I noticed a piece of paper that had been stuck on the windshield. I took it off and gazed at it curiously while Bill was looking over the gears. The paper was dirty and torn, but it was the note written on it that interested me. In a scrawling, heavy hand the tramp had written these words: “Here is your - auto back again. Yore welcum.” I didn’t show the paper to Bill. I didn’t have the heart to spoil his refound joy, and besides he was busy tightening the steer¬ ing wheel. Soon “Richard” was once more in good running con¬ dition which was not saying much, however. Bill started the engine. With the same old jounce and creak “Richard” slowly got under way and we rattled on our journey back to town. It wasn’t until we had nearly reached our village that I remembered something. “Say, Bill,” I said. “I thought we started out for Maine. Looks to me as if we’re headed the wrong way.” “By gosh,” Bill exclaimed,” that’s right! Why I forgot all about it! Oh well, never mind, we can go to Maine any old time. Besides we ' d better wait until we get more used to “Richard” before we start on a trip.” To these words I thankfully agreed, but with the mental pro¬ vision that I should never get used to “Richard” for I intended that a safe distance would be kept between us. Later in the summer I ceded my half of the auto to Bill. He was pleased and I was relieved. It was a satisfactory arrangement all around. Ever since then, however, I have made it a point to look twice at an auto before riding in it, for experience is the best teacher. GEORGE M. COOK, ' 27 [30] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Island of the Fire God gj N the Island of the Fire God, in the village of Naakoomis lived Vll a beautiful Indian girl named Nareen. She and her lover Ka- win-ka were very happy for they were soon to be married. Nareen lived with So-lo her father who was very old. One day as she was busy curing some animal skins which had been given her by Ka-win-ka, she was sent for by Wa-hoo the Medicine Man. Nareen w r as very much afraid of him, as was the rest of the tribe. She knew that the custom of the tribe w r as to sacrifice the most beautiful girl to the Fire God. They believed that if they did not do this the Fire God would be angry, knd the mountain would erupt a stream of fire and lava to destroy the village. Therefore, each year, the most beautiful girl was chosen by the Medicine Man to wear the Mask of Gold and dance the “Dance of Sacrifice” in the Cave of Echoes. This was a mammouth cave which went deep into the bowels of the earth. Here all the mummies of long dead Medicine Men were placed. Here the maidens danced before the idol of the Fire God, and here one was left to die. Knowing this, Nareen trembled at the summons, but she obeyed and went to Wa-hoo’s hut. He said, “Nareen, Daughter-of-the Willow, the time has come and passed for the sacrifice, and the God is angry and the mountain has belched forth smoke. Now the God must be appeased for our delay. You must wear the Mask of Gold”. He brought it out, a large, hideous, carved face of gold with bulging emerald eyes, a horrible toothless grin, and an enormous ruby in the forehead, like an evil eye. Then the long ceremonial robe of fur of wolves printed in red and green in fantastic designs w r as put on the terrified girl. “Be ready, Daughter-of-the-Willow, at sunset to leave us and enter the Cave of Echoes,” admonished Wa-hoo. Nareen fearful, weary, and sick a t heart went slowly home. Her father was distressed by the doom which had befallen his daughter, but he was old and could do nothing. Ka-win-ka was distracted, angry with Wa-hoo, yet afraid of him and the anger of the Fire God. But when Nareen came to say good-bye, he vowed that he would save her or get into the cave to die with her. l ' HE HUTT LEST ON IA N Just before sunset, Ka-win-ka silently took his way to the cave. As he entered the passage and plunged into the darkness inside, he felt along the walls of the narrow passage till it opened into a wider space. Groping around he found the Idol of the Fire God, and hid behind it. Sometime later Wa-hoo came in carrying a torch which he placed in the mouth of the huge Idol, behind which Ka-win-ka hid. After making a few incantations he went out, leaving the torch. By its light, Ka-win-ka saw the figure of the mummies which were seated around the walls, and the bones and grinning, greenish skulls of their enemies strewed at intervals over the floor. He was very much frightened but he could not leave now. At sunset Nareen emerged from her hut. How fantastic and horrible she looked in the ceremonial robes, with her feet in painted moccasins and her head covered with the gold mask which hung to her shoulders. Eight girls dressed in fur robes of the same type awaited her, their faces also painted hideously. They proceeded to the cave headed by Wa-hoo, who walked with a slow, precise step, singing in a low monotone all the while. The girls followed in single file, a silent, solemn, procession. W hen they reached the cave they entered and when they came to the Idol they began to dance with sinuous, grotesque motions. After some time Nareen knelt before the Idol, and the girls dis¬ appeared. Immediately Ka-win-ka came out of hiding and Nareen took off the mask. Just then there was a grinding crash. The opening to the cave had been closed by a big boulder. Entombed ! They were aghast. Frantically they crept out of the dimly lighted cave into the black recesses and corners, down the devious passage-ways, crossing and recrossing. Sometimes the trail led them down, at other times up. They became tired, and hungry, and frightened. Minutes there dragged like hours; the hours seemed like days. If they could not get out they would starve. After awhile, they began to lose hope of ever finding any way out. At last, weary, hungry, thirsty, forlorn they sat down to rest. What was that? A sound like the ' tri ckle of water! Ka-win-ka led the way toward the sound. Finally they came to a place where a trickle of water seemed to come out of the very walls. It made [32] THE HUTTLESTONIAN a little stream about six inches wide running down the floor of the passage. Here the two knelt to drink the clear, cold, fluid. As they started on, a faint gleam of light which came from an opening in the wall barely big enough to scpieeze through, attracted their attention. Blue skv, an expanse of Avater, and shore ! Ka-win-ka recog¬ nized the place as being on the side of the island opposite the village. Why they were no better off than before! The only thing to do was to try to get to the land, which could be seen in the distance. Ka-win-ka decided to explore the place while Nareen rested. At length he returned in a canoe made of a hollowed-out tree, which he had stolen from its place on the beach near the village. In but a moment they were paddling hastily, fearful of detection and pursuit. “See, the Fire God is angry,” whispered Nareen as the volcano in the distance belched forth its smoke and lava into the morning air. Suddenly the mountain seemed enveloped in flame! The lava began to rush in huge molten streams down its sides, into the tiny village. The Fire God was angry at the loss of its victim. The little village must be wiped out to appease its wrath. But the two lovers watched from the distance, safe, happy, with a new life before them. DORIS A. GILBERT, ‘26 (Continued from page 16 ) he had seen them before. Ah, he remembered! These bills were the very ones. For, mixed in among the other bills which he had handed the blue-eyed “con man” had been several counterfeits. Now, to his surprise, he found himself holding those very bills. At this moment, Jack Doyle entered the house and went directly to his den. As he turned on the light he beheld Jules staring fixedly at several crumpled bills which he held in his hand. Jules had been so absorbed in gazing at those very familiar bills that he had failed to hear Doyle’s entrance. As Jules looked startled and saw the blue-eyed “con man” upon whom he had sworn vengeance standing in the doorway, the bills fell from his hand while he dived for his trusty “revolvere” which (Concluded on page 50 ) [33] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Commercial Club TJTHe employment bureau of the Com- V! mercial Club has been very active this year.

HAYTER,’26 [34] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Original Cross Word Puzzle A FEW days ago, Caesar asked us to take a trip with him to Vene- tia. We had often thought we would like to see Venice so we accepted quite readily, but were somewhat startled on arriving at our destination to find ourselves in the French province of Brittany. Almost at once Caesar began to tell us in his clear dramatic Latin all about the ships of .the Veneti; way back in 56 B. C., when he met them in his famous naval battle. Now we have travelled about a great deal with Caesar this year, so that we did not have much difficulty in understanding his words. Since we knew our Latin teacher would want to know all about it next day, we put down in English the Latin words that fell so fluently from Caesar’s lips. This is what we wrote:— “For of them the ships to this fashion had been made and armed; the keels somewhat flatter than of our ships, that more easily shallows and withdrawal of tide to receive they might be able ; the prows to a degree erect and the sterns for the greatness of the waves and tempests fitted; ships wholly made from oak for what¬ ever force and outrages bearing; cross beams from foot into altitude beams fixed by iron nails.” Then he said two words that we had never heard before—“disriti pollicis”—but when we looked up from our papers inquiringly, Caesar obligingly held up his hand. “Oh yes, the thumb finger,” we said to ourselves and continued writing. “Of the thumb finger in thickness : the anchors in front of ropes with iron chains bound; hides in front of sails, whether because of lack of linen and of its use ignorance or which is —i verisimile—.” Now “verisimile” ought to mean very similar but we rather questioned it. We looked at each other till Everett said, “Versus— true , similis—like.” Then again we continued. “Which is more likely because the so great storms of the ocean and the so great attack of the winds to be sustained, and the so great weight of the ships to be ruled by sails not sufficiently well could they thought.” (Continued on page 37 ) [35] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Ascent, of Mont Blanc by Aerial Railway (Translated from “Jc Sais Tout, " December, 1925) TTT HE United States has the largest locomotives, transatlantic W ' steamers and skyscrapers in the world, but to France must go the honor of having the highest “funiculaire aerien,” in the world. This loftv construction starts at Pelerins several hundred meters from Chamonix and immediately enters the high mountains which are bordered on the north by the glacier of Bossons. It rises until it reaches La Para where the first station is located. The next stop is. Les Glaciers, and from there we go towards Le Col du Midi, a pocket in the White Valley; there winter sports, are enjoy r ed in Au¬ gust. L’Aiguille du Midi is the marvelous terminal with a very ' difficult ascent. Hitherto, few had ever been there but now it is accessible to all. The construction of this aerial funicular was commenced in 1909 but was interrupted by the war. Work was recommenced in 1923 and it was christened in 1924. The electrical system was for¬ mulated by an Italian named Cerretti. The cables are supported on huge pylones. Each carriage weighs twenty ' -four tons and runs on eight rollers from a cable. They ' are capable of containing eight¬ een passengers. The height between Pelerins and L’Aiguille du Midi is 2,500 meters. The angle of ascent in some places is 72 degrees and the averag-e is about 55 degrees. The service is good and due to the novelty of the ascent and the simplicity ' of getting to the top, we predict that the line will probably be a success. MILTON L. MARCH ANT, ’26 [36] THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Second Year German Class S HE German class is now translating Gerstacker’s “Germels- hausen.” Gerstacker, the author of the book, spent nearly one- fourth of his life in foreign travel; the rest of the time he spent in lit¬ erary labors, writing about what he had seen. “Germelshausen” is set in Germany and gives the reader a charming view of modern German village life. The pupils find the book interesting and instructive. I will write a German paragraph, translate it word for word, and then I will write it in English. This will show the structure of sentences in a foreign language. Wie Ihr nur so wunderlich redet, sagte das Madchen verschamt, wenn er hatt’ kommen konnen, war er gewiss schon da. Yielleicht ist er wohl krank oder—oder gar—tot, setzte sie langsam und recht aus vollem Herzen aufseufzend hinzu. Translated word for word: “How you only so strange speak,” said the girl modestly, if he had to come able, would he certainly already here be. Perhaps is he probably sick or—or even—dead,” added she slowly and right out of full heart sighed aloud. Translated into good English. “Why do you speak so strangely,” the girl said modestly, “if he had been able to come, he would certainly have been here already. Perhaps he is sick or—or even dead,” she added slowly and sighed heavily from her overflowing heart. This shows how the pupils translate their German into English. It takes much studying to put German sentences into the best English, because the structure of the sentences is confusing. This is what the pupils strive for—translating their sentences into good English. EVELYN M. SMITH, ’26 (Continued from page 35 ) After Caesar left us, we read our notes over. One thing was very evident, idiomatic Latin was not idiomatic English, and if we offered a translation like this to Mrs. Dodge, she would say, “English please” about three times to every line. Only two finite verbs in the whole paragraph! That would never do! “Hides in front of sails. Anchors in front of ropes.” Something must be the matter with that pro . We decided to try (Concluded on page 40 ) THE HUTTLESTONIAN Johann Sebastian Bach 3 0HANN SEBASTIAN BACH, one of the world’s greatest com¬ posers, was born in a little town in Germany on March 31, 1685. While young, he had a great fondness for music and his father, who was a violinist, showed his interest in the boy by teaching him to play the violin. When Johann was ten years old his father died, and he went to live with an older brother, an organist, who taught Johann the playing of the clavichord, a medieval stringed instrument similar to the old fashioned piano. In the year 1700 while in Luneburg, he began the serious study of the organ and continued it for many years. As a player on the clavichord, he had no equal among his contemporaries, but it was not until one century after his death that his greatness as a composer was fully recognized. His death occurred on July 28, 1750. Bach’s compositions include chorales, masses, sonatas, passion music and the well known preludes and fugues. He never wrote theatrical music, and he brought polyphonic music to its highest point. Comparing Bach with Handel, who lived about the same time, we would say that Bach was a homebody with a family, who wrote io satisfy himself, while Handel was a traveler with no family, who wrote to satisfy the public. Bach was humble and cared little for applause, and it requires thought to understand his works. Handel was arrogant and could not do without applause ; his music is easy to comprehend. Handel died rich and Bach died poor. Both com¬ posers were blind. HELEN M. GEORGE, ’29. I 38 1 THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Socratic Method A DIALOGUE BETWEEN SOCRATES AND XANTHIPPE ' JjjDREWORD : Xanthippe is the sharp tempered wife of the philosopher. She is always finding fault with her husband and his trade. She does not think that he supports her well enough by means of his carving little statues. The Curtain Rises. (Socrates and his wife are both seated. Xanthippe is weaving and Socrates is carving his little statues before the open door.) Socrates: “Xanthippe, my wife, I think I’ll cease my work and go forth to the market place where I can improve my mind by conversation.” Xanthippe: “What! Again, you lazy pig! Once more you wish to talk at the market place when you should be working at your trade, poor though it is. Your fine phrases will never supply our fuel and and shelter. I am so weak from hunger that I can scarce speak a word.” Socrates: (To himself) “In truth she succeeds in making herself heard, nevertheless. Well, I must prove her in the wrong.” (Aloud) “But Xanthippe, surely you do not consider my trade a poor one. Am I not a master sculptor?” Xanthippe: “What folly you speak! You a master sculptor! The most ignorant child from the streets is more of an artist than you are. You carve your little statues and sell them for money. All those who buy are cheated.” Socrates: “Then you think my trade a dishonest one and you do not approve of it?” Xanthippe: “I did not say so. A dishonest trade is better than none in this case.” Socrates: “Then by the same method of reasoning a dishonest man is better than none.” Xanthippe: “As far as I am concerned, he is.” Socrates: “Suppose you were to go away and leave all your most valuable belongings in this house. According to what you have already said you would rather have a thief in the house than nobody at all.” Xanthippe: “Of course not, you fool!” Socrates: “Then you will admit that a dishonest man is worse than none at all?” [39] THE HUTTLESTONIAX Xanthippe: “Yes, I will admit that ’ Socrates : “Likewise you must confess that a dishonest trade is worse than none. You have already defined my profession as dishonest. Therefore, my trade is worse than no trade at all. Of course you would not wish me to work at such a worthless profession. I under¬ stand just how you feel in the matter, my dear Xanthippe, so I ' ll saunter forth to the market-place where I can more profitably spend my time. You may expect me home later in the day.” (Socrates leaves ) Xanthippe is overwhelmed by the logic of her husband but feeling that she must have the last word, she rushes to the doorway and calls after him. “Mind you are home by sunset or I shall lock the door against you.” GEORGE M. COOK, ’27 (Concluded from page 37 ) instead of for that and to put in sunt here and there for that is always allowable. Mrs. Dodge would probably ask if a tempest meant a thunder storm and our replies would differ. What’s the cross beam in a boat anyhow? Well, next day we talked it all over in class, and, if you will believe me, this is what we said:— “For their ships were built and equipped after this fashion. They drew somewhat less water than our own ships, and so rode the ' shoals at ebb tide more safely. The bows and sterns were rather high to adjust them to the huge, stormy waves. The sloops were made entirely of oak, to stand any buffeting force whatever. The thwarts were made of beams a foot thick, fastened with spikes as thick as a man’s thumb, The anchors were made fast by chains instead of ropes. Hides were used for sails, either because of the lack of linen and their ignorance as to its use, or—what is more likely—because they thought that the great ocean storms and the winds’ buffeting could not be withstood very well, or such heavy ships steered properly with linen sails.” MIRIAM OWEN, ’29 [401 THE HUTTLESTONIAN A Few Chemical Principles in Cooking OUNG Mrs. Brown was having - a terrible time. She had de- itl dared several times in the last few hours that no voting woman .( 5 in vhe whole town—in the whole state, as things grew worse—was having such luck. Everything seemed to mix itself in the most natural wrong way possible. There was the bread which she had mixed the night before, which simply would not rise as it should. And the cake—the cake which she had planned with such care. She had read the cook book recipe thoroughly—such a simple thing to make—and now it lay on the table, Pat, and some burnt remains in the oven. The brown sugar candy which she had prepared very carefully—just as the book had said—had curdled almost before it began to boil. I don’t blame her for being discouraged, do you? Perhaps if she had known why certain foods require very care¬ ful heat regulation she would not have had so much trouble. Yeast, for example, causes certain chemical changes, which must be met with a certain temperature to give the desired result. Cake is another food which should have careful preparation. Measurements should be as called for—no nearly, or a little over, but exact! Too little or too much flour may cause the cake to fall or it may cause it to be hard and heavy. Some cake requires beaten in air to make it rise and this fact should not be neglected. If Mrs. Brown had only known what a small pinch of baking soda would have done ! Milk contains an acid which often causes a mixture to curdle. Soda contains certain chemical properties which will neutralize this acid—thus preventing many household mishaps. These principles are carefully taught and explained in the Domestic Science department. The work is not only helpful, but intensely interesting. VIRGINIA M. YOKES, ’26 THE HUTTLESTONIAN Sewing Fairhaven, Massachusetts, March 26, 1926. Dear Cousin, I wish you could have seen the Spring Display in our sewing room. It was certainly a credit to the Freshman Class. There were nightgowns and pajamas, both white and colored, some trimmed with lace and edging, others with ribbon. Kimonos were there, too, in all the pastel shades. Dresses and under-garments including slips, petticoats, step-ins! and bloomers completed the array. The first half of this year we had sewing one afternoon period during each week. It seemed as tho the period had just begun when it was time to go, so quickly did the time pass. I hope that you may sometime have the opportunity to visit one of our sewing classes. With my love, RUTH BEDFORD, ? 29. The Library ♦ HE week-end book shelf” is a new feature recently started w ' in the library. A small collection of books is brought from the Millicent Library every " Thursday. These books may be taken out on Friday " and kept for one week. The collection will consist of books of new biography " , travel, short stories, fiction and poetry. The service is for the use of both teachers and students. If the plan proves a success, it will be followed for the remainder of the y ' ear. If there are any special requests, the librarian will be glad to receive them and try to obtain the books desired. This collection will be kept on the table under the west windows. ELVERA L. BIANCHI, Librarian. l ' HE HUTTLESTONIAN The Value of General Science to Everyday Life 3 N the study of general science many everyday topics are explained ;uch as air, water and foods, and how life is dependent upon these essentials. The air and the elements contained in the atmosphere are dis¬ cussed in general. We are all living at the bottom of an ocean of air. This ocean of air, extending to an indefinite height above our heads, is composed of just as real a substance as any ocean of water. In studying water we are made to realize how dependent we are on it to carry on life activities and also the great part it takes in building up the soil. Because of this dependence of man upon an abundant water supply the history of the development of civiliza¬ tion may almost be read by tracing out the means by which man has obtained water. Foods and their care are explained in the most interesting manner. Here, the great necessity in obtaining pure foods is clearly pointed out. We are especially reminded of the harmful organisms which attack foods and make them unfit for use. Household necessities are brought in and thoroughly discussed. We are made to realize the value of having a clean, healthful house¬ hold. Building of homes cautions us to be careful of the locality and convenience. These must be taken into consideration when building or buying a house. General science also touches upon the study of the earth and upon the celestial bodies, facts regarding the solar system, gravita¬ tion, cause of day and night and of seasons of the year. Along with these studies, certain experiments are performed which impress the facts more clearly on the student’s mind. General science is not a difficult subject. It is taught mainly to impress upon people the necessities of everyday life. In reading the text book things are brought to our minds which may never have otherwise occurred to us. It does not go deeply into any one subject, but it touches lightly on each one to give us a general idea of that particular phase. It acquaints us with a few scientific terms and is indeed a great help to anyone who is planning to take up a further study of science. DORIS E. DIGGLE, ’29 THE HUTTLESTONIAN The Marvelous Electron NCLE Burt was always calling at unexpected times. At one of these times the folks were out. so Bill had to entertain his uncle. They spent most of the evening talking, and naturally in the course of their conversation the subject of Bill’s studies came up: “Say, Bill,” asked Uncle Burt, “what’s your most interesting study ?” “Physics,” answered his nephew promptly. “Umm,” said Uncle Burt modestly, “I used to be a shark at physics myself when I was in school. I don’t believe the teacher could think up a question that I couldn’t answer. He used to try awfully hard to stick me sometimes, but he never did ! Electricity was always interesting to me.” “Were studying about electrons now; er—well they ' re quite hard to understand, but so far I guess Eve got a pretty good idea of them.” “Electrons?” queried his uncle. “What are they?” “Don’t you know?” asked his nephew in surprise. “Why they’re almost the smallest bits of matter imaginable.” “That’s new,” said Uncle Burt. “When 1 was in school the atom was the smallest particle and the molecule was the next in size. Besides, atom means indivisable, and of course there ' s nothing smaller than that. Now, where do your electrons come in? " “Gee. Uncle Burt, you’re way behind the times.” Bill waxed eloquent. “Why, not only the electron is smaller than the atom, but the proton is even smaller than the electron, and some scientists tell us that there may be something even smaller than the proton. Of course you know that there are two kinds of electricity, positive and negative.” Uncle Burt nodded. “Well,” Bill continued, “positive electricity consists of protons which form the nucleus of each electrically charged atom. About these protons are grouped negative electrons, because unlike charges of electricity attract each other. When atoms contain an equal number of electrons and protons they bear no charge—being neutral —but when an atom has more electrons or more protons it then THE HUTTLESTONIAN becomes either negatively or postively charged. The protons and electrons are little particles of electrically charged matter, and while the protons are fixed, the electrons are continually flying about through space.” “But,” queried Uncle Burt, “how do you explain the fact that these particles of matter contain energy? I thought matter possess¬ ed no energy until a certain amount of work, was done upon it?” Bill hesitated. At length he replied, “This is the so-called ‘intra- atomic’ energy which, if released by disrupting, the atoms could produce almost unlimited sources of energy. In fact, it is said that in one single pebble on the beach there is enough energy to far surpass that we could obtain by combustion out of the entire contents of a coal mine. What causes this energy we do not know.” • “You sure your Physics book says that?” asked his amazed Uncle. “Positive,” replied his nephew. “More-over these electrons have been discovered to be in weight .(XX),000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,- 901 grammes and a gramme equals .0353 ounces. In diameter it is less than the ten-thousand-millionth of an inch. It can attain an average velocity of from 50,000 to 150,000 miles per second and has been known to attain ninety-nine per cent of the velocity of light (186,000 miles a second). “Well, Bill,” said Uncle Burt as he got up to go, “I think I’ve spent quite a profitable evening. Those new ideas about electricity and matter surely are interesting, and they prove beyond doubt that science is progressing steadily every day. For all I know, the next time 1 visit you, you may tell me there is something smaller than the proton. However, you won’t be able to give me such a surprise, because I intend to keep up with scientific pro¬ ceedings from now on.” And Uncle Burt departed in fine humor. WEBSTER R. BROWN, ’27 GRANVILLE T. PRIOR, ’27 THE HUTTLESTONIAN Spirit Asunder A T the time of the death of my grandfather in England, my Aunt Abigail came to visit us. She brought a very old hall clock that had been used for over a century. This clock was said to drop a weight at the time of the death of any member of the family. Aunt Abigail was very superstitious and although we ridiculed her we found ourselves intensely disturbed by the presence of this heirloom. Aunt Abigail also brought, to me, Deborah, a beautifully carved dresser; for I was her favorite niece. She had been with us but a week when she was called to Chicago to the marriage of her eldest son. On that night I had a very queer feelin g just before retiring. I made several excuses but it was late so I went up to bed. I fairly shuddered as I passed the clock on the stairs ; I knew not why. I crawled beneath the covers and lay there a long, long time but I could not sleep. I heard the rest of the family when they went to bed. Soon all was still for they slept; but I did not. I quivered as my hands grew cold and clammy. Suddenly I heard a clamoring and banging on the stairs. I bounded from bed, slipped into my kimono, and dashed to the top of the stairway. All was dark and not a thing to be seen. I wanted to call my father but something seemed to summon me into the gloomy depths of the lower hall. Cautiously I descended and passed through the hall to the parlor door. Did I hear a noise? Yes! there it was again, very faint and quavering. I strained my ears, to get the syllables. “Deborah.” and again, very distinctly this time, “Deborah, come here, dear.” So startled was I, that I nearly dashed up stairs, when a white woman. Frozen with terror, as if glued to the spot, I stood and stared at the figure, when the sorrow lined face suddenly appeared mist filled the room and slowly concentrated into the form of a to be my aunt’s although it looked years older. Slowly the misty form fairly floated to the room above, and into my bedroom, while I hurriedly clambered up the stairway. THE HUTTLESTONIAN When I arrived in my room the filmy figure rose from a chair and swept toward the other side of the bed. One hand was slowly raised and pointed to the dresser, while the other beckoned me to it; then slowly the apparition disappeared in the way it had come. As soon as I overcame my fear, and began a search of the dresser, I found that the peculiar inlaid top would raise up. Beneath it was a sealed envelope and I discovered upon opening it several hundred dollars. With this clasped tightly in my hand I went to my mother’s room who in turn awakened the other members of the family. We talked it over for an hour or so and then as we all agreed that we had no more sleep in us we dressed and went down stairs although it was barely daybreak. We had not been up long before the door bell rang. It was a message saying that my aunt had died at one o’clock the night before. • I went to look at the clock in the hall. The weight was on the floor and the clock had stopped at one A. M. MARJORIE L. HOWE, ’28 A Gigantic Light outh-west of Dijon at a height of five hundred and ninety-five meters there is an immense tower. This tower was built to guide air travel, and at the present time it has the strongest light in the world. The light is made up in sets of two lenses facing each other, and they furnish a light of one thousand million candle power that carries five hundred kilometers. If a aviator leaves Brussells on a clear night, he is able to see the light all the time that he is travel¬ ling. The tower is fifteen meters in height, with a diameter of six meters. It is made up of five stories ; the two upper stories contain the light itself, while the other three hold the various instruments used in measuring, and the material used in furnishing the power. The two upper stories are encased in glass and the light swings on a pivot, thus covering all points of the compass. WALTER E. LONGMORE, ’26. THE HUTTLESTONI AN Exchanges 0 THE ARTGUM OF THE MASSACHUSETTS NORMAL ART SCHOOL. BOSTON. FEBRUARY 1926 A masterpiece, blit to what list of editors do we g ' ive this credit ■ One almost sees a studio and smells the oils and paints when glancing- through “The Artgum”. Everyone who admires art would appreciate the pictures in this issue. The articles on the World Court are hue, yet we were not ready for such, but would have enjoyed articles on decorating, designing, and appreciation ! BROCKTONIA. BROCKTON HIGH, BROCKTON, MASS. VALENTINE NUMBER 1926 By just looking a t the cover we know we’ve picked up the right magazine. A nice “flashy” valentine lover! Now just a few things to say: Your cuts are worth while. Every department is represented and tells of its activities. Your type and paper is newsy. Very well balanced copy. Your magazine is without doubt the finest. THE TATTLE TALE WAREHAM HIGH, WAREHAM, MASS. DECEMBER—1925, Real Christmasy number! The Christmas stories are there. The play is good. Tell us something of your departmental activities and work—French—Latin—Commerical—History—clubs, et cetera. We get a good check on our Wareham friends by reading “wanted by”. THE DIAL 20TH ANNIVERSARY BRATTLEBORO HIGH, BRATTLEBORO. VT. FEBRUARY 1926 A very experienced magazine—20 years of experience has brought “The Dial” to it’s reader, a complete, and splendid magazine. Everyone knows what to expect now; and they are not or will not be (we’re sure) disappointed. THE HUTTLESTONIAN The departmental articles are there — but introduce more cuts and designs. The size and cover appearance of “The Dial " is very imposing. THE JABBERWOCK. GIRLS LATIN SCHOOL, BOSTON. JANUARY 1926. Your cover design coincides well with the nature of your title — Jabberwock. Your cuts (although necessarily few) are attractive. The article on the “World Court " is magnificent. “The Jabberwock " is very complete, in so much as your school would not cover as much as a high school with many activities. Your book folds too easily. RADIATOR. SOMERVILLE HIGH SCHOOL., SOMERVILLE, MASS. JAN. FEB., 1926 The fact that you issue such well balanced, well written maga¬ zines each month shows a great amount of effort and interest. — A o good job. Departmental activities are well taken care of. Your cuts are of the finest—especially “public occurrences. " Put some home-made flashes in. Try a smaller sized copy — this folds too easily. THE CHRONICLE. HARTFORD PUBLIC HIGH. JANUARY 1926. Very fine articles and editorials. Their subjects well chosen and well written upon. Why not separate into departments and these departments introduced by attractive—cuts or headings ? By reading the directory in the back of “The Chronicle " we find many clubs, societies, et cetera, that could be arranged in departmental columns ; and who could contribute. W e would like to know of your editorial staff. THE GRADUATION ISSUE OF “THE ALPHA " NEW BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL, NEW BEDFORD, MASS. JANUARY 1926, The class prophecies, histories and graduation material make en¬ joyable reading. Great collection of stories to read. Put a sug¬ gestive design on the cover some day. Rather good cartoonists in this issue — as high school cartoonists go. [ 49 ] n-IE HUTTLESTOXIAX THE JOHNSON JOURNAL JOHNSON HIGH SCHOOL, NORTH DOVER. MASS. XMAS NUMBER 1925. A jolly Xmas celebration—your cover design; your type is a bit too small and hard to read—otherwise “The Journal’s” contents are enjoyably consumed. “The Journal” could be “pepped up” by adding sketchy cuts. Pages 8 and 9 are very witty. Write up some better ads. It’ll pay. THE JANUARY 1926 ISSUE OF “THE ITEM.” DORCHESTER HIGH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, DORCHESTER, MASSACHUSETTS. Nice alumni section shows plenty of work keeping in touch, and makes “The Item” much more enjoyable for friends of Dorchester High. Put editorials first; and sketch a design cut over the stories. If your jokes are original, as they look—the young ladies must con¬ tain much wit and humor! (Concluded from page 33 ) he had placed on the floor close by. Vengeance, he thought, would be his. The calm voice of Jack Doyle broke the silence, “No you don’t Jules, I’ve got the drop on you,” and Jules found himself staring into the barrel of Jack’s automatic. “You consider yourself a crook —the master crook of France ! A fine crook you are to let yourself be “duped” by a stranger! “You’ll see presently, Jules,” he continued, “that I’ve been watching you through the “eyes of the underworld” and so rather thought you’d pay me a visit.” “Who ever heard of a crook who was crooked?” concluded Jack. As he pressed a button, a squad of blue-coated officers filed in and led Jules gnashing his teeth in rage, from the room. GRANVILLE T. PRIOR, ’27 THE HUTTLESTONIAN Miss Dorothy Hammond, daughter of Mrs. Allen Hammond, Main Street, Mattapoisett, has been elected to Phi Beta Kappa, honorary national scholastic society. Miss Hammond will be gradu¬ ated from Wellesley College in June. She was graduated from Fairhaven High School with the class of 1921. Miss Alice Eitel who graduated from Fairhaven High School last year ranks scholastically among the ten highest of her class at Mt. Holyoke. “The Huttlestonian” has travelled far on its journeys ! Perhaps the following letter from an alumnus of the school will prove of interest to former graduates as well as present students. Station; Egham. Town Green Farm, Tel. Egham 135. Englefield Green, Surrey, England December 30, 1925. Dear Sir :— I am a member of the class of 1910 of the F. H. S. and have had the great pleasure of having seen and read the school magazine “ The Huttlestonian.” Would you please write and tell me if I could obtain it by a subscription-fee, or is it only to be had by the students at present in the school. I enjoyed it so much that I have often longed to see it again. I spent many happy days at school and they will ever remain in my memory. With my very best wishes for “A Happy New Year” and wishing all at the dear school much success. I remain, Yours truly, Signed (Miss) Winifride A. Savin.
