Have you ever flown over the countryside of our great nation and watched the pattern of the earth beneath you — the sand-trapped golf courses, lovely lakes, wooded sections of various size, cities here and there, and the patchwork quilt of brown and green farmlands? This changing beauty as it unfolds before you did not just happen by chance. Those great stretches of farmland which form the basket of our nation were once a vast wooded area. Man, because of need, through powers resident within himself, by physical effort, cleared small patches of land by cutting trees, burning stumps, and breaking sod so that plantings could be made and harvests gathered in. Today is no different — in principle. Though we read in magazines of secretarial trained men and women who today are presidents of banks, railroads, public utilities and nationally known department and specialty stores, these people have used the same per- sonal characteristics to build their vocation as did the farmer. The upward climb has been characterized by hard work, long hours, never giving up because of difficulty, interest in the job, seeing one ' s self as part of a team, and thinking in terms of executive or ad- ministrative means rather than one ' s own personal pleasure. Today has been our day at Fisher Junior College for we have shared with you the best that experience has taught us — both in the classroom and in extra-curricular activ- ities. But tomorrow is all yours — parents and teachers stand aside. You are now on your very own — with the privilege of duplicating and extending that which has been achieved in the past; or perhaps venturing into completely new and unchartered fields. But in any event it will be the touch of your hand and your mind rather than ours. Some of you will be satisfied with the status quo; others with mediocrity; but here and there a few of you will combine ideals and ideas with work to prove that today ' s and tomorrow ' s opportunities and privileges are as good as or better than yesterday ' s. So from these touring years of experience I will challenge you to better yourselves con- stantly in attitude and adventure. Seek out avenues of service, use these as stepping stones, keep your mind open, and never stop learning. This attitude will make it possible for you to leave a mark high enough on the wall of time to make you and those who know you proud. 4 ADMINISTRATION MYRON C. FISHER, JR., B.S. in Ed.

HISTORY OF THE Barn Dance — October, 1952. Historic Tour of Old Boston, November, 1952. Fiftieth Anniversary Birthday Party, January, 1953. 42 They say that life is just one sweet song, and that ' s what it was for the class of 1954 of Fisher Junior College. Of course it had its blues along with the smooth waltzes. It all began on a cool fall morn- ing in mid-September, 1952. On that day, a curious, excited group of girls entered the impressive doors of 118 Beacon Street to begin the long journey toward graduation on June 13, 1954 from Fisher Junior College. But let ' s start from the beginning and follow this group from their very first uncertain day. You could say it all began with a waltz. Of course the pace kept changing those first few months to many different beats. The class of ' 54 waltzed in by electing as its leaders Sue Gortner, June Malette, Moya Baldwin, and Synia Bartkus. As everyone was new to everyone else, there were many ups and downs as we all got ac- quainted. To help us all to know each other, a " " Get Acquainted Party " was held. It was not long before most of the girls had at least a nodding acquaintance with the rest of her classmates. Many of us sang the blues when we started ac- counting; and when those sets became due, you never heard such sighing and moaning! But we weathered that storm and many another together. In October, interest for some co-ed activities be- came evident, so Fisher sponsored a Barn Dance at the " " Y " and invited boys from neighboring colleges to attend. A good time was had by all and the girls expressed a desire for more of the same. In Novem- ber, some of the students went on an historic tour of old Boston and ended up at Durgin Park ' s for lunch. The informal dance at the Somerset Hotel on No- vember 22 was quite a success. In December we had our Dad and Daughters ' night. The theme of the evening, " " Fifty -Year Revue, " was based on 1953 be- ing the fiftieth anniversary of Fisher Junior College. One morning in January we all found invitations to a birthday party on our time cards; and lo and behold! Sweetheart Ball — February, 1953. CLASS OF 1954 it was a birthday party for Fisher! Refreshments were served in the Gold Ballroom that afternoon in honor of Fisher ' s iirst fifty years. Suddenly at Fisher, all was silent. What was the matter? — Midyears!!! Perhaps the best way to de- scribe this time in the life of the class of ' 54 would be " " Stormy Weather. " But as always we pulled through, losing very few of our classmates. There were many more delightful times in store for us in our Junior year, including the hockey game at the Boston Garden, the Sweetheart Ball, the Globe- trotters ' game, and the baseball game at Fenway Park. But the most impressive time of our Junior year was Junior Week. It was during this week that the Moth- ers ' Tea and Fashion Show were held. Some of our own girls were in the fashion show sponsored by Leeds Department Store. This big week in our lives as Juniors was brought to a close with our Junior Prom in the Gold Ballroom. This was our last social event as Juniors, and it was from here that we waltzed gaily into our Senior year. We knew, as the honor students of our class held the Daisy Chain for the Seniors, that it would soon be our turn to go forth from Fisher to a new and different life. And now it was September again and we returned once more to Number 118, this time sure of what we were doing and with definite plans for doing it weU. Gaily we hailed old friends; and with a little more confidence than before, we took up the burden of class work again. Acounting was behind us, we said, what could daunt us this year! Transcription soon proved that acounting had been but child ' s play. It certainly would have been quite a job to take a count of the wasted paper and frayed nerves at the end of a transcription class! It was time to elect new leaders. Sue again be- came our president — an unspoken " thank you " for the wonderful work she had done for us during our Junior year. Our other officers were Sallie Tyler, Nancy Schultz, and Ruth Ann Cassidy. We soon saw that something new had been added. Not only had our oflRce machines room been made larger, but there were several other improvements. Among these was the outing at Cedar Hill planned for us. Classes were dismissed early that day and a good deal of fun was had by both the experienced Seniors and the poor new Juniors. This was certainly a step forward in getting to know all the newcomers. On November 18, the Showboat Frolics was pro- duced at Whitney Hall, Brookline, with quite a profit for the Senior Class. We were all surprised at the talent among us. Dad and Daughter Night this year was again a big success and a lot of fun for those participating in it. In December came our first formal dance of the year at the Hotel Somerset. This year there were many things planned for us and many which we planned for ourselves. Among these were the Rodeo, the Harvard-Dartmouth game, a trip to the Gardner Museum, a night at " Pops, " a theater party, the Ice Follies, and the Globetrotters ' basketball game. Last, and best of all, was the week of our gradua- tion. Class Day, with speeches full of farewells and hopes for our future, left us in a nostalgic mood. That night our last social event, our Senior Prom, was held. It was wonderful to be together, but so sad to think of us all scattered in so short a time. The life of the class of ' 54 was coming to an end. And so it was. On June 13, 1954, the girls of the class of ' 54 graduated from Fisher Junior College and walked out these doors of learning to go their various ways, perhaps never to return. But as we look back, we are glad and grateful for the short life of our class. We had many good times and passed through many trials together. We shall always remember the hard work, the good times, the helping hands, and the wonderful friends we made at Fisher. —NANCY SCHULTZ Introduction to Shorthand! Halloween — 1953. CLASS OF 1955 OFFICERS OF THE JUNIOR CLASS President: Bettejane Payson Vice-President: Lillian Salerno Secretary: Minnie Bell Huiett Tr easurer: Dolores LeSaffre The Junior Class entered through the portals of Fisher Junior College, lighthearted and carefree, on September 17, 1953. One hundred and nineteen girls, all hoping to become efficient secretaries, started on a new career. We settled down to the routine that was to become our life for the next two school years. Being eager to participate in school activities, most of the girls joined various or- ganizations — the Glee Club, the Student Council, and Phi Beta Gamma ( the Commuters ' Club). Several members of our class displayed hidden talent in the Minstrel Show put on by the Seniors. Many girls volunteered to support worthy causes such as the Red Feather Campaign, the March of Dimes, and the Heart Fund by collecting funds at events at the Boston Garden. The biggest item on our agenda for the year was Junior Week. This included a lecture, the Mothers ' Tea, various kinds of entertainment, and, most important, the Junior Prom. The Prom was a symbol of what our class worked for. This symbol for us was a chance to better ourselves and to acquire the knowledge with which to make our own way through life. With our first year at Fisher behind us, we have made our basic foothold in the world of business. —BETTEJANE PAYSON JUNIOR First Row: B. Boynton, M. Huban, B. Bullard, T. Tselepis, N. Campbell, J.

FLORENCE HALL When we first came to live in Florence Hall, it seemed as if graduation was a long time away. Now that " that " day has finally come and we look back on the days we have spent with classmates and friends at " 112 " , we realize how short the time has really been. None of us will ever forget the parties that were held after " lights-out " , the dances, or studying for tests, or how hard we worked to make the dorm parties and the party for the children at the Little House events to remember. Now we say goodbye to the Juniors in Florence Hall and thank you to our house- mother, Mrs. Moulton, for taking care of all her little angels for two years. EDMUND HALL Edmund Hall is located at 114 Beacon Street and is a twin building to Florence Hall at 112 Beacon Street. This dormitory is named for one of the co-founders of the college, Mr. Edmund H. Fisher. It accommodates twenty-eight girls and our housemother, Mrs. Walter Kidder. The twenty-eight girls living at Edmund Hall this year represent the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, and we have one girl from Manila! Our house officers this year were Faye Robbins, House Clerk; Jacqueline March, Social Chairman; Janice Hermance, Secretary; and Althea Hanscom, Treasurer. First Row: K. Swart, A. Hans- com, J.

ANDREW HALL The girls at 181 Beacon Street spent a wonderful and hectic year here at Andrew Hall. Many events made this possible. First, our housemother, Mrs. Grace Palmer, was taken ill and had to leave for a short while. Mrs. Myrtle Chase took over and did a fine job. Mrs. Chase was with us until the early part of February when Mrs. Palmer returned. Under the leadership of our houseclerk, Inge Kroencke, the girls at Andrew planned many social events including teas, coffee hours, and outings. A Christmas party and a Halloween party were also held. The girls at Andrew agree that half our fun at college was the result of living at 118 Beacon. SARAH MORTIMER HALL Sarah Mortimer Hall, located at 86 Marlborough Street, is a large, five-story building housing forty girls and our housemother, Mrs. Mildred Clarke. Among that many pleasant things we do besides studying are dorm parties, hay rides, theater parties, and card games. Whatever door you open, you are sure to find someone busily knitting argyles, sweaters, hats and or various other kinds of knitted accessories. Of course, you may also find a few studious ones trying to get ahead! Our dormitory days will long be remembered as some of the most pleasant while attending Fisher Junior College. i Officers of the Student Council First Row: J. Capen, Mrs. Hurley, Mrs. Fritz, J. Wilson. Second Row: B. Boynton, I. Massey, J. Peterson, J. Mac- Donald, A. Frantello. STUDENT COUNCIL The purpose of the Student Council is to act as a liaison between the Administration and the student body. Its activities cover the discussion of school policies, assistance in disciplinary matters, discussion of the social and school calendars for the year, planning and editing the student handbook, and general liaison work for the students. The Student Council is composed of four committees: the Social Committee which handles all social functions of the school; the Advisory Committee which meets with members of the faculty to discuss such things as the type of assemblies the girls would enjoy; the Accessory Committee which handles the ordering of pins, blazers, rings and the like; and the Service and Handbook Committee which handles any odd jobs that have to be done and the editing of the handbook. DORMITORY COUNCILS East dormitory has its own judiciary board consisting of a selected group of girls. It is the function of this board to attempt to settle all problems which arise in the dormi- tory. The council consists of the houseclerk; a two-year senior, who is the social chairman; a two-year junior; and a one-year student. The number of girls on the council varies with the size of the dormitory. The Inter-dorm Council, the houseclerks, meet monthly to discuss the activities and happenings of each dorm. By working with the students, the housemother, and the Administration, each dormitory council settles its own problems and makes the dorm it represents a more desirable place in which to live.

The Fashion Show was presented at New England Mutual Hall, sponsored by Leeds of Boston. Louise Morgan, celebrated Boston radio and television star, was the commentator. Fifteen of Fisher ' s own students modeled, and five professional models added to the bevy of beautiful girls. The fashions shown were typical of what the well-dressed girl would wear from dawn to dusk. Everyone enjoyed seeing the lovely fashions and went home with visions of a new wardrobe dancing about in her head! After the show, tea was served in the Gold Ballroom of the College, with the Junior and Senior Officers pouring. MINSTREL SHOW Our minstrel show, the SHOWBOAT FROLICS, under the direction of Alberta Frantello, was a huge success. It was held on Wednesday, November 18, at Whitney Hall, Brookline, Massachusetts. Although there were times when we thought our chances of putting on the show were slim, we pulled through, thanks to Miss Madeleine M. Devine, Alberta Frantello, Sue Gortner, Janet Twomey, and Louise Sherman, who gave their all. Our Tambourine Girls worked as hard as any to perfect their routine. The End Men had a few surprises: scooters, cap guns, bells, horns, those jokes, AND the perfect (?) harmony in " Moonlight Bay " ! 54 First Row: F. Hunnewell, J. Hermance, L. Bayerle, L. Kemp, B.

GLEE CLUB Under the able direction of Mr. Louis Siagel, the sweetest voices this side of heaven can be heard emanating from the ballroom every Thursday afternoon when the Glee Club rehearses. The girls made their first " public " appearance at the Thanksgiving Assem- bly. Janet Twomey accompanied the group at the piano and did an excellent job! The Glee Club participated next in the Dad and Daughter Night program, where they were warmly received. " I Believe, " " April in Portugal, " and " I ' m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair " were the three selections that were presented by the girls. Then came the Christmas performance. As the Glee Club sang the " Halleluiah Chorus " at the annual pre-holiday assembly, the true meaning of Christmas was surely re-born in the hearts of everyone present. The Glee Club is a favorite organization at Fisher. The girls love the opportunity to get together and relax by singing their hearts out! DAD AND DAUGHTER NIGHT Fisher Junior College was a busy place on the night of Tuesday, December 8, 1953. This was Dad and Daughter Night. The girls, eager to put on a good show for their Dads, had been rehearsing for three weeks. The show was based on well-known songs of past years. Dramatizations of such songs as " Me and My Shadow, " " Side by Side, " and " Collegiate " were pre- sented. Among the group numbers were the comical, " Shanty in Old Shanty Town, " " When You Wore A Tulip, " a presentation of Spanish songs by the Spanish Club, and three numbers rendered by the Glee Club. Shining future stars of Broadway were to be found in the specialty numbers of the show. Jane Landers, Mavis Bentley, Nancy Taylor, and Edna Hirshberg were splendid in their vocal renditions; while Beverly Lydon (Fisher ' s " My Heart Belongs to Daddy " girl) and Leah Cronin (the " Gentlemen Prefer Blondes " brunette) danced and sang their way through these two lively numbers. Instrumental were presented by Judy Capen at the piano, and Mr. Richard and Miss Roberta Doyle on the xylophone, accompanied by Mrs. Doyle at the piano. The show was topped off by a community sing; and a song, written especially for this show by Su- zanne Gortner, Janet Twomey, and Leah Cronin, was sung to the Fathers by the cast. The entire evening was a complete success thanks to the untiring eflForts of Mrs. Hurley and Mrs. Fritz, faculty advisers; Leah Cronin, director; Janet Twomey, pianist; and Marilyn Grant who acted as Mistress of Ceremonies. After the entertainment, refreshments, beautifully prepared by Mrs. Petherick and her com- mittee, were served in the President ' s office. —JANET TWOMEY First Row: L. Sherman, J. Bartlett, A.

There is always a touch cf the bittersweet in bidding farewell: Sad because one looks back upon the things which she has come to know and to like (if not to love) and ponders that soon these will be gone, gone foreverj sweet because she looks back with a feeling of accomplishment upon the things which she has done well and ahead with the joy of anticipation tovi-ard the new life which is about to unfold before her. What will it be like I Betwixt the sad and the glad, may I take a little spot to say " Good-bye, " not as a word of final parting, but as the expression of my true wish: God be with ye, today, tomorrow, and for all day, every day. Thank yon for being with us; for running through the halls and t jimbling iown the stairs; for your harmless pranks and your normal misdemeanors; for the laughter and happiness of your youth and your carefree hearts; for sitting in our classes and giving us the opportunity to teach ycu — for we have loved it; for the problems which you have brought to us to help you solve, for there is joy in helping others; for letting us give anything that we could give you, for there is warmth to the spirit in giving; for letting us share your sad- ness, for there is comfort in sharing. Thank you for touching our lives; for the love, the life, and the learning which being with you has brought to us — and we hope, oh so deeply, that you, too, have ta sted of love and life and learning through being with us. God be with you and fare thee well, I have but one last thought to give you in parting — Complete Photographic Service To The 1954 BEACON SARGENT STUDIO 154 BOYLSTON STREET BOSTON 16, MASSACHUSETTS 64
