E arly on a bright September morn- ing, four years and some months ago to-day, by scores and dozens, the future class of 1900 marched to its christening. We were not wanted until twelve o’clock, but, as is usu- ally the case, every one arrived at eight except Rourke, ’00, who strag- gled in about half past twelve. Dur- ing the interim we made a race- counse of the first floor corridor, and enjoyed ourselves to our heart’s content, until we were given a pen- cil and a singing book and sent home to dinner. Things went along smoothly, without a single event to break the monotonous regularity of our daily life, until the next April, when the grammar masters sent up all the wisest pupils. How did we ever get along without this aggre- gation ? It has furnished a class president and a football captain, to say noth- ing of a flag-pole climber and some sidewalk painters. We have heard the expression, “(ireat Scott.” Cowdrey prefers Sadie Scott. BEST IN TUB CITY. 36 Main Street. dotting True, ESTABLISHED 1867. Leader in Fine Jewelry, Watches, Clocks, Etc.

Sleeper. For two more yeans we lingered along between life and death, “the unobserved of all observers,’’ and monarehs of the third floor. We had the usual eleetion fight in the beginning of our Junior year. After the elass and Mr. Bingham had tried in vain to settle it, “the Supreme Court of Appeals” handed down a deeision. Then, as the muse of room 26 has graphieally put it into verse : “ Bun, Bun, the coniinissioner’s son, Took the eh air and away he run.” j. W. F., Poet. During the first of that year, various committees chose the class flower, pin, ring, colors and motto. Though all of these are appropriate and show the good judgment of the committee, none deserve special men- tion except the class pin, which is the daintiest pin that ever ornamented a pupil of the Fitchburg high school. During the Junior year various par- ties were held by the class, which netted a small financial return for a great deal of work. As this was and is a wide-awake and self-assert- ive class, we kept the class of ’99 continually on the qui vive. As they did not follow Napoleon’s maxim of always knowing what the enemy is going to do next, H. H. W oodward found an opportunity to capture the senior elass flag which was secreted in Fosdiek’s house. Then the Sen- iors rose in their wrath and moved against “Castle FovSdick.” Thev might have made better use of their time 1)3 ' stud dng their English les- sons, for the} ' would have been marching 3 and still be no nearer their flag, but the} went cr3 ' ing to Mr. Hitchcock, and armed with his august commands the} ' recovered the bone of contention. When the class of ’99 graduated we again showed our enterprising spirits. Af- ter school, a small crowd of Junior bo3 ' s bought a can of paint and proceeded to decorate the sidewalks, posts, etc., in the vicinit} ' of the school. The Seniors became possessed of another and put some “cuss words” after our chef d ' oeuvre. This gave the teachers an opportunit} ' to show the usefulness of a college chemistiw course applied to the ordinary (side) walks of life. That evening St-r-r and K-3 ' -s hoisted the 1900 flag to the flagpole, where it remained dur- ing the exercises to the anger of Messrs. Hartwell and Smith and the everlasting disgrace of the class of ’99. In our Senior 3 ' ear we were the acknowledged autocrats of the .school. We were given a reception by the teachers in November, held various class parties, received more D’s than any previous class, elected a red-headed president, had our pic- tures taken, and part of us grad- uated and part of us did not.

S. stands for Fitchburg High School, we state that they are wrong; it means “Fidgety Harriet Stimson.” Foot Ball. HE opening of the season of 1899 found in the school a dearth of experienced football pla3 ers. The footl)all team of the previous year had not amounted to much, which was partl3 " responsible for the lack of experience. Besides, the members of the school, especial the class of 1900 , were a great deal 3 ounger and smaller than in an3 " previous 3 ear. What few big men there were in the school knew nothing about football. Not to be discouraged the Ath- letic Association voted to put a team in the field and elected L. C. Shed don manager and W. H. Rourke captain. Training was immediate commenced, though without a reg- ular trainer. After the first game Capt. Rourke resigned, and Frederick Storer was elected to fill the vaeane3 James Hogan then began to coach the team and under training the eleven began to show great improvement. In the Murdock game and subse- (pient practice four or five pla3 " ers managed to get injured, l)ut rather tlian cancel the Gardner game the team went up with substitutes in more than half of the positions. Arrived there, we found a team op- ]Dosing us that from the size of the members woul d liave been supposed to have graduated from high school three 3 ears ago. Though the team did not win ever3 game it pla3 " ed, in no game did it show a lack of science or knowledge of the game, and it never failed to pla3 ' against a team heavier than itself. The skilful and daring playing of H. Whitcomb was a feature of ever3 " game. Among those who deserve special mention are A. Irish and C. Kendall. Following is a list of the team and schedule of games: F. E. Storer, captain ; L. C. Sheddoii, manager; Archie Irish, Henr 3 ' Whitcomb, William Fisher, James R ' an, John Moran, Bernard Care ' , Harold Knight, Harwood Ke 3 ' es, Alvin Downie, Herbert Dillon, “Chick” Kendall, Lewis Philbrook, Robert Walsh, Robert Grubb, Walter Storer, Richard Miller.

I N THE .spring of ’98 representatives from the higli .sehool of Fiteh- burg, Gardner, Leominster, Clinton and Lancaster met at Leominster and formed the Waehusett Inter- scholastic Athletic Association, to include the schools mentioned. The first meet was held at Fitch- burg on June 11, ’98. Fitchburg and Gardner gradual!} " drew ahead of the other schools and it soon be- came evident that the championship for that year lay between them. “Enfin,” Fitchburg won by a score of 611 to Gardner’s 55. 1900 was well represented, as is shown by the appended schedule. In ’99 the meet was again held here. Leominster and Lancaster did not send teams, and though Clinton did, the victory was plainl} for either F. H. S. or G. H. vS. Thanks to Platts’ good work we won again. In this meet 1900 shone supreme, there being but two winners of firsts who were not in that class. This year training began early in May. We were unable to secure Mr. Brennan as trainer, but Mr. S. M. Nathan made an efficient substitute. The team, excepting Platts, Russell and Kendall, was practically new material, but the men developed rapidly, and the outcome of the meet with Gardner (a dual one as Clinton had dro])ped out) l)egan to look more ])romising. In the class meet held May 24, 1900 won with ease, and the fine showing made Iw the men raised hope still higher. The W. 1. A. A. meet was held June 2, and Gardner was left far behind, the score at the end stand- ing F. H. S. 76, G. H. S. 55. Earh " in the day all points probable for Ffitchburg were counted up and it seemed that at best we could win by but three or four points. But main " of our men showed u]) strongly, while Gardner lost courage. Platts as usual shone as pointsman, while Russell, Storer, Knight and Keyes took two or more firsts. 1900 out- did itself, winning all but 12 of the 76 points. Storer won both bicwele races, kindly assisted by the “ Kid ” ; Hard} " won the high jump and did well in the 220-yard dash ; Russell was next to Platts with two firsts and a tie for first to his credit; Kendall un- expectedly finished second in the quarter, while Dillon did the same in the shot-put, winning the same place won by his brother last year; Knight proved a surprise in the re- lay, winning his quarter handily ; he also won the hurdles ; Keyes won the 880-yard run, aided by Miller, “Solemn and gray and worn with discipline.” — Third Floor.

IL S. made its a])pearanee. The interest in this sport was awakened by H. C. Whitcomb, who was chosen cap- tain and manager. This choice was justified hy subsequent events, for he not only proved to be an efficient cajitain and manager but by far the best pla ' er on the team. After a few practice games were held the following team was picked to repre- sent the school : Whitcomb, Kendall, Fisher, Schragle, Philbrook ; FLosmer, Base AKLY in the si)ring of the present year the Athletic Association of the school voted to put a baseball team on the diamond. At first the promoters of the project found but little interest in the sport among the pupils. Not daunted at that a few practices were held, and ' the team picked started in on what proved to be a very successful season’s work. As the team went on winning a good proportion of the games pla ed the interest of the school steadily in- creased, and it is safe to say that the school will never again allow Ball. substitute.

Never get into vour seat until ten seconds before the fifteen minutes bell. — By Rourke, ’ 00 . Never shaq en a pencil on the floor; sharpen it on a block and throw it on the floor. Never call a teacher down to his face. Do it behind his back. Never whisper unless you are alone or with somebody-. Chew nothing but the best gum during school hours. While in school never fight with a teacher. Go out of doors, there is more room there. Have nothing to do with Miss Blanchard. You may have to march with her .sixth hour cadets. Avoid congratulating Cobb on an 3 possible engagements ; it’s well, it is not wise. Don’t go sightseeing on an ’- of our high buildings ; it is not nice. If 3 " ou do, take an iee pick, and ask Anna for manner of using the same. For further particulars apph ' to Miss Damon, ’02. Never allow ourself to be ap- pointed on a Class Book committee.

Amid the bright blossoms of June we have met To reeall our past pleasures so dear, And although here to-night sad farewells we must say, May the future be faced without fear. If barren the path of plain duty e’er seem. Or mere pleasure allure us astray. May we onward and upward still strive to attain The heights to be won by who may. Not always with laurel is true success erowned, Nor the sweetness of fame by all known, But the value of effort is waiting for all, And by idleness fruit is ne’er grown. Then under our banners of crimson and white. Which for conflict and purity stand. May we ever courageously live our own lives And with boldness obey or command. Tune: “ Fair Harva rd . ’ 1900.
