As we entered the sehool the first year - the present building was used, we did not need an older pupil to take us under his wing and show us how to get around. The ways and means of the sehool were just as strange and eonfusing to the haughty senior, the patronizing junior, and overbear- ing sophomore, as they were to the eool and know-it-all freshman. We began at onee to show that the high sehool was our native cle- ment, by forming a football team during the first month of sehool. The other elasses were still trying to beeome aeeustomed to the building when we went to Leominster and defeated the elass of ’99 of the L. H. S. This paved the way for other athletie teams and in the spring a baseball team increased our list of victories (to say nothing of the de- feats). Our next year passed quietly along without any incidents to dis- turb the peaceful monotony of a high school class that is not organ- ized. Studies had our chief atten- tion, while we calmly waited for the long anticipated junior year. On the morn of Oct. 5, 1897, the celebrated three days convention ended, and we emerged from the We are not to say anytliinpr abont Ethel, because it will Pufir(h)er uj).

The elass deeided that l)lne and white were their tVivorite eolors, and tbrget-ine-nots shonld be the elass (lower. Under the ])resident’s able administration we held the usual nninber of class parties with invar- iable success. The senior year opened with our elass read for a season of successes socially and intellectually. The elec- tion of Sept. 16 resulted in the choice of Fred Moore as president. He pro- ceeded to make himself popular at once by planning to hold four class ])arties. The elass was to put on a class play, while the girls were to conduct a minstrel performance. Active preparations were being made for these events when the interposi- tion of our beloved |)rincipal, as- sisted by the school committee, showed that it would be unwise to conduct anything more than three elass parties. Hut while the various entertain- ments that were ex])eeted to take place did not materialize, an unex- pected, and for that reason more enjoyable one did. The teachers of the school, after seeing us for almost four years without knowing who wc were, decided that it was about time that the future presidents, judges, professors, and business men and women should meet their instructors socially and exchange views on edu- cational and other subjects. The drawing hall of the school was transformed into a beautifully decor- ated reception room, under the magic influence of the teachers, and after keeping us in suspense as to the nature of the gathering, they invited us to partake of their hospitality on the evening of Dec. 16, 1898. The cordial and hearty welcome ex- tended to us on that occasion, and the pleasant acquaintances that we made, will long be treasured among the happiest recollections of the class of ’99. WHIMSICALITIES. Ballantine escorted Misses Healey and Darling to Boston and could not buy an apple the next day. “With eyes severe and beard of formal cut.’’ — Bingham.

ATHLETICS. niiK football season of ’1)8 oi)cne(l I very iiiaiispieioiisly for the higli seliool. The team of ’1)7 had left behind them a splendid reeord, whieh with the men and materials at hand it wonld be im])ossible to rival, much less outdo. After about one month’s ]3ractice, the outlook bein somewhat dis- couraging, it was agreed that dis- bandment would be best for the team. During October the idea of football was a lost chord in the high school, but as other teams appeared as weak as ours and showed it in their games, a longing soon arose in the school for a good strong game with the pigskin. Practice started again in the last week of October Then came the first game, Nov. 4, at Leominster, which resulted in de- feat. Nov. 9, five days later, we tied the strong Murdock team of Winchen- donin a closely contested game here. Friday, Nov. 11, saw our first victory, at Clinton, and Nov. 16 our second, at Fitchburg. The latter was our greatest game. Leominster was our opponent and was honor- ably defeated by the score of 5 to 0. On the 18th we went to Gardner and met our last Waterloo, but re- turned in a merry mood, humming “There’s a red light on the track for Boozer Brown.” Thus closed the football season of ’98. No great list of victories stood to our account, but the men got an insight into the game and ])avcd the way for next year’s work on the gridiron. Moreover, we had a splen- did financial success, which helped to ]:)ay off some of our too numer- ous debts. In I ' ebruary the W. 1. A. A. ex- ecutive committee, eomy osed of mem- bers from Fitchburg, Gardner and Clinton, met and decided to hold the annual field day at Fitch bui ' g on May 27. Training began in April under the very able instructor, Mr. Brennan, and continued up to the day of the meet. On that day a large crowd was present to see the games. Promptly at 1.30 p. M. the first dash of the 100-yai ' d was run. Then the other events followed in rapid succession until at 6 p. m. it was found that the F. H. S. had won a glorious victory. Only once was any other school ahead in points, and then not for long, for Platts with his usual promptness came forward and took two firsts, which with the other points won saved the day; and everyone went home rejoicing that success had crowned our banner. In the field day we appeared at our best, for in truth our men are built more for this kind of work than for rough work like football. Unstinted praise is due Mr. Bren- nan, the committee in charge, and lastly the team itself, for the suc- cessful manner in which the work has been pushed to a conclusion. Stylish A I bee, Lyons Co ..

Air: “ s e of Beauty, Fare Thee Well. " Step by step we’ve climbed the ladder; Round by round is honor won ; We have gone not half the distance, But our school-life here is done. Still in store the future waits us, ' All life’s battles yet to fight; All our hopes and aspirations Ought and must be toward the right. We have done our .work together. Now we hear the sad farewells ; But our motto, that will help us, If we follow what it tells. Then “Gradatim,” let us keep it! Truly keep it, firm and strong! “Step by step, without retarding,” Classmates, let us hasten on. IlICHB UBe HIG H SCKOni UBRAfir
