Class Book OF 1907 Ne Cede Malis 0 ' Published by the Class of 1907 Fitchburg, Massachusetts, June, MCMVII. To Our Respected Friend and Former Instructor MR. WILLIAM WALTER OBEAR THIS BOOK Is Dedicated by the Class of 1907 WILLIAM WALTER OBEAR WILLIAM WALTER OBEAR in the departure of Mr. ()l)ear, the Class of 1907 and the inein- hers of the Fitchl)iiry- Ilii h School in general have cause for deep regret. i lr. Ohear was graduated from the Malden High School in 1893 and in the same year entered Amherst College. After his graduation from college in 1897 he taught one year each in the Delaware Liter- ary Institute, Franklin, N. Y., and at W ' eymonth, Mass. Then it was that he came to Fitchburg as instructor in Chemistry and Physics. Last year he resigned his position here, and since his departure has been snb-master in the Somerville English High School, in charge of the department of Chemistry and Physics. T wish him great success and prosperity in his future work, and his memory will always be cherished by the members of the Class of 1907. TO ALL FRIENDS AND WELL-WISHERS THE CLASS OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND SEVEN EXTENDS A MOST SINCERE AND CORDIAL GREETING Board of Editors JOHN HENRY VAILLANT Editor-in-Chief BERTRAM ARTHUR BROWN EDWARD DAHILL CARL AUGUSTIN DUCHARME HELEN ISABELLE HARRISON BERNARDINE KIELTY HENRIETTA LITTLEFIELD KATHERINE JANE POWELL CHARLES EDWIN PRIEST CHARLES MICHAEL RODDY MARIAN MILLAR SHANKS 10 O N a fair September morn, in the fall of 1903, a long file of small but expectant young hopefuls “with shining morning face” might have been seen " Creeping like snail unwillingly to school” and running the gauntlet between lines of grinning n])per classmen. After due greetings and instructions froni the principal, who likewise was making his debut at F. H. S.,, with downcast countenance and timid heart ' 07 entered the sphere of its future glory. Ere many days had elapsed, however, the courage of the Fresh- man girls rose sufiiciently to allow a game of Puss-in-the-corner in the basement, and even, in time, a game of tag. (This was our first feel)le attenrpt to win an encouraging smile from our illustrious elders, ’04.) Such frivolities were, however, laid aside by Sophomore year, when under the gentle guidance of the new Latin professor, just appearing above the horizon with his stock of literal translations and his unparallelled genius for winning popularity, we blossomed into a dignified and studious existence. At this unsophisticated period " trots” were unknown, but a complete high school course is a liberal education and ' 07 has not been slow to learn. It was during this year that through its great studiosity, ' 07 attained the appellation of “Bill’s Banner Class.” However, our subsequent record has served to blot out this disgrace. 11 ' Pile first matter of life and death im])ortancc to oeeupy the minds of the ' 07 Juniors was the eleetion of offieers, whose effieieney was soon proved l)y their ca])al)le manai ement of the Purple and W ' hite affair, d ' his disiilay was the first real mark of distinction which we attained. hw-en our elders look upon it with patronizini ap])roval. Later in the year, an auto spree and successful ffaj -raising won us still more laurels. It is needless to remark that our various class ])arties, receptions and other socials were strikin successes, and with pride in our hearts and a goodly sup])ly of shekels in our pockets we took u]) the respon- sibilities of Senior Year — and then! ! Laurels: social, athletic, intellectual, threatened to overwhelm us. W e were too much even for the Fac- ulty, and before the year was out nearly all had resigned ; even our beloved Sarah, whose de])arture was much we])t over. But why lin- ger with a recitation of the well-known details of this brilliant Finis to an illustrious career? Rather let us hasten with our good wishes for succeeding classes, who, we hoipe, will profit by our worthy ex- ample, and with our heartfelt gratitude and goodwill for the Princi- pal and F ' aculty, who have one and all succeeded in winning a warm place in the hearts of 07, let us bid you, F. H. S., an affectionate “AUF W’lEDERSEHEX.” 12 CHARLES MICHAEL RODDY. “An all-round good fellow.” The best to be said is none too good for our class president. He has won laurels as a athlete, a busi- ness manager, a debater, and a scholar. In all offices he has worked most efficiently, and can claim a record unsurpassed by any other member of the class. New- man Club. MARIAN MILLAR SHANKS. Marian is by general vote the most charming mem- ber of the class. She has been a very faithful vice- ])resident, and her committee work has been of the best. Any class boasting of such as her may well be congratulated. HENRIETTA LITTLEFIELD. “I awoke one morning and found myself famous.” One of the smartest and most popular girls of the class is Henrietta. She has become celebrated as editor of the Red and Gray, as secretary of the senior class, and as the winner of the essay contest. Some day we expect she will be a Wellesley college professor. EDWARD EMORY WARNER. “When I ope my mouth let no dog bark!” Ed. is an adept in all arts, ranging from love-making to hurling a sphere. He has been prominent in the social and athletic world, being a member of the foot- ball and captain of the baseball team. Zeta Phi. 13 THOMAS AKER. “ I’ax vol)isciiin ! ” Tommy holds down a seat in 2(). He hasn’t one into athletics for a living, but as a debater he has shone like a new jjair of shoes We confidently hope to hear from him in a few years as Brother Thirdl} ' Aker, delivering red-hot sermons and leriding his flock along the narrow way FOSTER BAILEY. “One of nature’s living jokes.’’ An acknowledged debater, and quite able with his yarns to keep the girls from getting the “blues.” We regret to say that he figured in athletics only as a pool player. Zeta Phi. AGNES BERG. “Who thinks too little and talks too much.’’ Agnes, dear, has carried a cheert ' existence for four long years in the back seat beside Dahill. She is happy, so is he. HELEN LOUISE BILLINGS. “The hour is fixed, the match is made.’’ Helen has set the pace in the engagement line. We know he’ll be happ 3 ’ , and we hope she will. 14 ALICE MILDRED BROWN. “Sighed and looked unutterable things.” A dainty little morsel, perfectly lovable and coy. She has served her class as junior secretary, and pianist of the celebrated High School orchestra. BERTRAM ARTHUR BROWN. “ Look ! he’s winding up the clock of his wit, bye and bye it will strike.” Bertram is a general favorite with the girls. He has the sweet smile and charming manner which attract, and cannot be beaten when it comes to decorating monuments. Lambda Sigma. BARBARA EMMA BULLARD. “Can one love twice?” Alas, yes! says Harold. But there is no denying that she has always done well by her class, and when it comes to basket ball Barbara can’t be beat. LUCINA GAGE CARTER. “Whence is tln learning? Toil O’er books consumed the midnight oil?” Lucina belongs to our sky-scraper brigade and has many good points. She can draw up all sorts of plans, and it is rumored that she is drawing up a plan of marriage : she also has powers of the tongue and has gained great renown thereby. DOROTHY FRANCKS CONDON. “As shy as a youn ? antelope.” Sweet Dorothy’s pretty dimples and blue eyes make preat havoc with the hearts of the boys. She expects to be a nurse when she is older, but until then she is i oin to while away time at the Normal school. ERNEST WILLIAM CONWAY. “And he too went forth and was married.” He had much strength but knew not how to use it, and so received the title of a “clumsy athlete.” He was never known to attend the Eiijou unaccompaned. RUTH ELLEN COOLIDGE. “ Harmless and docile as a lamb.” Ruth flew down from Mount Vernon street with a cheery heart, and in some unaccountable way has managed to look on the sunny side ever since. EDWARD DAHILL, JR. “A mighty man is he.” Ed. can trim Prof. Eliot in the use of large words, nevertheless he has starred in the athletic world and as manager of the baseball team. Newman Club. 16 MARJORIE ELIZABETH DAHILL. “All we ask is but a patient ear.’’ Marjorie is the magnet around which the bo3’ s hover; “nicht wahr,” boys? Her lack of voice is balanced by the terrific greatness of the other Dahill. RALPH SHERWIN URURY. “To blame a lad for being in love is like chiding one for being ill.” We can sum him up onl as an enemy to no one, and a friend to all. His services as treasurer of the class the junior year, and as business manager of the Red and Gray, were appreciated by all. When it comes to bowling “Pud” has few equals. Zeta Phi. CARL AUGUSTIN DUCHARME. “The Frenchman, easy, debonnair, and brisk, Give him his lass, his fiddle, and his frisk.’’ Duch is a natural athlete, musician, mechanic and all-round business man. But as a juggler he shines only in football. He was president of the A. A. and did good work as chairman of the class picture committee. Newman Club. SADIE ELIZABETH DWYER. “I too have had my longings.’’ We hope Sadie will have courage enough to capture her longings. She is one of the most bashful young ladies in the class. 17 DHLMHR HOWARD DRAKE. “ I would it were bed-time.” Although Drake seems far from earth he sometimes wakes up to reeite in civics. He is a great friend of the girls who have their chemistry note-hooks made up. ETHEL AURELIA DERAGON. “In truth I know not why I am .so sad.” Ethel is a model of a good student. She does not say much; but she knows a good deal, as we saw in the recent debate, where she made a good showing. KATHRYN PAULINE DESMOND. “She has wit, and fun, and fire.” Kate sprang from the Day Street school, and brought with her a goodly supply of life. She can keep things going, and good-naturedly accepts any demerits which may fall to her lot. WILLIAM HENRY DOOLING. “I never felt the kiss of love, Nor maiden’s hand in mine.” William Henry is a quiet lad, but nevertheless he is there with the berries when needed. He is a model scholar, and a good one. In trig he can easily prove to you that the sine of cosine of the tangent of the diameter of the earth is 5,394,847.97 feet. Newman Club. 18 JOHN KIMBALL EAGER. “Thy voice is a celestial melody.’’ Too eager for our class; if Ichabod Crane came back to earth he might reasonably be jealous of Kimball. MAE EARLE. “In appearance cpnte important, bnt to what purpose?’’ Earl-e to bed and Earl-e to rise, makes Mae health} ' , big, and nice. Mae has served faithfully on the com- mittees and in the orchestra. She is the class Little (?) Red Riding Hood. MARY LORETTO FARRELL. very gentle beast and a good conscience.’’ Perhaps you never heard of her, but she is here. Loretto is distinguished by two things, — the way she does her hair, and her ability with the hddle. AUSTIN WELLINGTON FISHER. “Life is but an empty dream; Why wake up and slave?’’ “Nettie” is quite a boy now. He easily shows some fine points in basket ball. Committees have been un- der his guiding arm with success, and a brilliant future is opened up to him, for as molar artist he ought to be able to pull some. Lambda Sigma. 19 ROXAXXAH HARRIS (;A(;Iv “Shy she was and I thouf ht her cold.” Roxannah’s aim all through her senior year seems to have l)een to et through unnotieed. She shuns gossip with girls, l)ut now and then discusses art with Lawton. HAROLD WHITXEY GIBSOX. ‘‘Benedict the married man.” “ (jibb3 " ” is considered the slowest, yet the cleanest janitor that ever donned a juniper. As he said him- self, he needed none of anyone’s lip, ahd therefore re- fused to be jollied about his love affairs. LESTER HERBERT GODDARD. “Ye are sae grave Nae doots ye are wise.” “Lee” is false throughout, having jilted ten girls within three weeks. He often indulges in ice “ping pong.” JEANNIE MAY GOUGH. “DEAR JEANNIE, sweetest Jeannie ! ” Jeannie is the product of the Laurel Street grammar school. She doesn’t take much “guff” from anyone. 20 HELEN ISABELLE HARRLSON. “What a spendthrift she is of the tongue!’’ We doubt not that Helen will one da ' be president of Smith; her cart is hitched to a star drawn by large words. Helen is an authority on the Bible. DAVID JOSEPH HERLHIV. “Full many a smile he smole.’’ Herlihy is not so bashful as he looks, and we have reason to believe that out of school he is (piite soci- able. Newman Club. AIARGHERITA LETETIA HESSION. “I am not quite lean enough to be thought a student.” West Fitchburg is to be thanked for Margie. She has faithfully hopped on the cars for four years, and succeeded in being late not oftener than every other morning. She worked hand on the Gardner Reception committee. FLORENCE ISABEL JOHNvSON. “Unblemished let me live or die alone.’’ Florence Is-a-bel and no one can deny it. She hails from that beautiful town of Westminster and joined us in our senior year. She has no particular specialty, but it is even monet " that she doesn’t know how to make fudge. 21 - •- yv MABEL A LI DA KEYES. “I chatter, chatter as I flow.” The golden Ke3’es to silence have not yet l)een hfund by Mabel. Some da ' she nia prove as interesting a teacher as Miss Mart ' C. Smith. REKNAKDINE KIELTY. ‘‘Her mind is a precious jewel rare, Its triith and beauty vying there.” She is bej ' ond all doubt the most loval member of the class. Throughout her four years of training she held the enviable imputation of a scholar, at the same time ever ready to promote the athletic interests of the school. She was vice-president of the class our junior year. ETHEL LILLIAN KIYLAN. ‘‘Her hair hung round her pallid eheek Like seaweed round a clam.” Ethel came to us from the Daj ' Street school and is one of the most popular students, but alas ! she was termed b ' Aliss Greathead an inveterate whisperer. MATTI LAHTI. ‘‘‘E’s little, but ’e’s wise, ’E’s a terror for his size.” Matti has a record of being neither absent nor tardy. As court interpreter he has gained universal renown. 22 OLGA AMANDA LAKE. “I’ve blushed to say I have winked at him And he has winked at me.’’ Veritably is Olga one of the ripples on the Lake of ’07. During her course she has been silent when fools their voices lifted. Yet we believe of her that looks are de- ceptive. HOWARD WILLOUGHBY LAWTON. “All great men are dying And I feel quite ill.’’ Howard lives on easy street most of the time, the rest of the time he spends drawing pictures. He tried to play baseball, but found it too heav3 a job for him, so he gave it up. He has done fine work as an artist, and we are indebted to him for the design of our, class pin. VERA LESURE. “Nymph of the downward smile and sidelong glance.’’ Vera has served on innumerable committees, at- tended all the games, never has missed a party, and is one of the most attractive girls in the class. Never mind the quotation, V., we meant no harm. HAZEL BELL LITCHFIELD. “ Idfe is but one damned horrid grind; Look on the sunny side.’’ Hazel Bell is a firm advocate of woman’s rights; we have been unable to find anyone to opjmse her yet. She has served the class in man ' ways, adding weight to everything she says and squashing all opposition. It is reported that one day she reached high C in the Girls’ Glee Club. 23 RUFUS EARLE LITCHFIELD. “I swore — but w. ' is I sober when I swore? ' ' ” “Rufe” is (juite an athlete and ver ' popular, having held the central position on the basket ball team, and also has figured in baseball. We all thank him for his services as president of the class in the junif)r year. Lambda Si ma. LILLIAN ADELAIDE AIacGEACHEY. “Well, now! ain’t she cute?” Toot! Toot! Here comes Lil ! !!!??!? MAURICE EDWARD AIANEY. “Girls! girls! What a blessing!’’ Our youngster! He is a friend of all the girls, isn’t he, Dodo? A very industrious boy withal, and pos- sessing none of the foolish clatter of the ’06 Maney. GERTRUDE MARIE M ARCHESSAULT. “A good girl, but a terrible name.” Like her name a difficult3 Yet she Matchessault in all her surroundings that she does not seem out of place. She is quite a talker, and is noted for her princess suits. 24 ALFREDA MAY MILLER. “I done the best I knowed how.” Alfreda has only Ijeen with us one year, but vve like her just the same. At first she was just a little shy, like all the girls from Westminster, but she is nearly over that now. Freda says Fitchburg is all right. WALTER ADONIRAM MILLER. ‘‘How green thon art and fresh.” To think that Westminster could give us Walter for but one short year! He is a shy little thing, isn’t much bother, and in fact the girls all like him. Zeta Phi. JENNIE AGNES MORAN. ‘‘Have you a little fairy in your home?” Jennie might well be called a will-o’-the-wisp, now bobbing up, and falling, and finally dying away when morn comes. She has silently completed a four-years course. MARY EULALIA O’KEEFE. ‘‘Poor i)rattler. how thou talkest!” Marv holds the record for demerits. Though small in body her tongue is of such a peculiar nature that she has had to be suppressed by the faculty. 25 MARIA LOUISA PEELER. “Take her up tenderly, Lift her with care.” When we hear the ])atter of little feet in tlie corridor every niornin j after the last bell we know that Maria has arrived. Her broad grin readily tells us that she is from Westminster. KATHERINE JANE POWELL. “I’ll speak in a monstrous little voice.” Kate’s only drawback is her timid little voice, which, however, has won her much popularity in the class of ’07, especially with one member. Throughout the four years she has shone as a scholar. CHARLES EDWIN PRIEST. “The deed I intend is great, but what as j et I know not.” In Charlie we find a very promising candidate for Tech. Often has his ready wit driven away the mon- otony of the class room. He served as chairman of the first senior class party committee, and has done great work in various other committees. He also sprints well (for the lunch counter). Lambda Sigma. HERBERT TEMPLE PRATT. “ He would shake hands with the king upon his throne and think it a kindness to his majesty.” One of our class wits, and a firm believer in the Smith Somaniac doctrines. We wonder what the class would do without him. 26 BEATRICE MARTHA READ. “1 have immotal longings in me.” A fiddler of the first water. Ex-meinljer of the or- chestra, and a German student of whom Miss Wood- ward may well be proud. She and Helen are the “ lon and short of it.” CARROL BENNETT RICHARDSON. ‘‘Such a pretty hoy, and dances so lovely,” Itchy is just the candy, he can say ‘‘darn” and “gosh” and make up stale bluft ' s. What his aim in life is we cannot just say, but we don’t want to be round when he is aiming. STUART CARY SARGENT. ‘‘ Beautiful and Jchildlike he was, but now look at him.” When Stuart was a freshman the girls glanced at him and said ‘‘how cute,” but now he is a senior they gather round his desk and say ‘‘Oh, dear!” He in- tends to go to M, I. T. (N. I. T.) BESSIE FRANCES SAWYER. ‘‘Sober, steadfast, and demure.” Here we find another West-ern emigrant, but unlike the rest she is very taciturn. In all her rides she was never known to try to cheat the conductor. 27 RIJBIB ERNESTINE SCIIRA(;EE. “A reed sliaken by every passinj; wind.” As licr spectral figure comes floating down Main street we wonder that the “ Sisters three ” do not iti- itiatc lier to their order. Rnbie has had Jiianv love ahairs and still survives. lOHN CHARLES SMITH. ‘‘Tlie world did shake when I was born.” John Charles Smith, otherwise Pocahontas, is the larger one of these little Smiths; small in size but great in name. He has the fearlessness which his ancestor possessed, and we trust that he will some da be dis- tinguished. CHARLES WARREN SMITH. ‘‘Where did you come from, Baby dear? ( nt of everj’where into here.” Second Tom Thumb. Although small he is like an onion, great in strength. We expect one day to hear of him as a genius in the technical world. MARY JOSEPHINE SAIITH. ‘‘Not to know me ar ?ues yourself unknown ” Quiet, sedate Miss Smith came to us from the Day Street school four years ago, and has ever since been a silent but scholarly student. Good for Alay! 28 HATTIE ELIZABETH STARK. “I am notliiiif if not studious.” Hattie’s surname cleserihes in a word this demure maiden. Agnes and she are a fine pair and good re- sults are e.xpeeted from these priceless people. Their application for the Old Ladies’ Home has been sent in, but still we have hopes. FRED EUOENE STOCKWELL. ‘‘Sec little Freddie, how he dotes Upon his daily Quaker Oats; And eveiw fellow student notes The smile that won’t come off.” B ' red never looks at the girls, for sad to Wright he has lost his heart in Gardner. GERTRUDE STEVENvS TWICHELL. ‘•Ah me! How weak a thing a woman’s heart is!” VN ' e expected wedding invitations from Gertrude and Carrol, but like other great schemes, it must have fallen through. In spite of her love affairs she has been a good student, like the rest of ’07. ETHELYN LOUISE UPTON. ‘‘Teach me to apply m3 " trembling heart to wisdom.” A shadow from a fleecy cloud; she floats to school; turns around and floats right home again. 29 JOHN HENRY VAI LEANT. “Silence is j oUlcn ?????????’’ Chairman of the class hook committee; he has (juite a reputation as an artist and a musician. He has been business manager of the Red and (iray, and is a member of the orchestra. John is fond of Oibson • irls and of other irls too. Newman Club. WILLIAM AUGUSTUS WARREN. “Tlie world knows nothing of its most famous men.” It is sad but true, that as a class we have tried to keep Willie from the girls, but all in vain, and he still persists in breaking hearts. He hails from Lunenburg. GERTRUDE BLANCHE WETHERBEE. “It is not often that we cross Such people in our wa3 ” “Say nothing but saw wood,” is the motto of this little South-sider, a motto which in this case has pro- duced much sawdust. CARRIE FRANCES WHITNEY. “A little, upright, tart, tripping witch.” Carrie has been a faithful student for four 3 ' ears. She is famous at debate and Latin translations. She and Ethel might pose as twins. 30 ELEANOR MARION WILDER. “In maiden meditation, fanc3 free.’’ Although not one of the class wits, or brilliant students, Marion is not one who wastes time. We believe she will land one of the other sex ahead of some of the more confident members. GEORGIA MERLE WINSLOW. “ Love me little, love me lon j.’’ Georgia Merle has served her class faithfully ? ? on the prom, committee. She was also one of those who helped to make the first senior class party a suc- cess. She believes in Gardner boys. ETHEL GERTRUDE WRAY. “Ah, pensive scholar, what is fame?’’ Teddy in size is the impersonation of the popular children’s Teddy; fat, foolish, freaky; a prize winner in the demerit show and a lover of masculinity. BESSIE CLARA WYETH. “All pomp and glory.’’ Here we have the genuine article with the cham- pionship of the county as a berry picker. She has also started in the poem business, and already many choice selections have fallen from her pen. She has also in- cluded music in her repretoire. Her hair is at once the pride of her heart and the source of all her trouble, and she isn’t afraid of rats. 31 MARION HTIIBL STARK. “As « ' i cook she stands alone, But Jis ;in artist never known.” .Marion is one of those bewitching voting ])e(i])le wlio captivate one at first si ht. She has daul)e(l tlie 1)rnsh to oreat advantage; yet we believe that as her name sig nifies she will undoubtedly become a distinguished performer on the sta e. MILDRED NHWCO.MB. “Obstinacy, obstinacy, wh3 ' was I born obstinate ? ” Mildred has frecjuently defied Air. Voodbur 3 ' ’s com- mands, N et we hope that her past experience in “ beard- ing the lion” will have tau " ht her wisdom. MAUD ELEANOR BATTLES. “ Not mnch talk, a great, sweet silence.” Maud is another Westminster product, coming here to put on an extra coating of knowledge. .At times she smiles and once she spoke to a hot ' . She believes that the best looking people do not take good pictures ; this accounts for the absence of hers. 32 CLASS SONG ’ " Pis June, that rare sweet month, When Nature’s at her best. ’hhs time for ns to leave onr hi ii school days And follow other works and plays ; And as we o, a voice is heard, “ i c cede Jiudis, ' ' onr watchword. And if some later year, AJisfortnne presses near, W e’ll all look back to these sweet days of youth; And then perchance we’ll hear in truth, ddiat voice that loni; ' ago we heard, “ Nc cede fiialis ' onr watchword. New courage will inspire Onr hearts with brighter fire ; WA’ll concpier then misfortunes one and all. Urg’d on by that persistent call. That voice that long ago we heard, “ Xc cede iiialis,’ ' onr watchword. Carrie Frances WTiitnev. 33 34 1908.

D ear friends, we leave you, leave you to uphold the school, to set an exanpile of streug-th and inte,c rity to that poor dilapidated class of freshmen. Already we have observed with joy that your relation to our illustrious class is very marked, and we admire your taste, we feel that in you are Imdding ' almost worthy successors to us. So take courage ; in two years from now you may he able to surmount all obstacles, and mounting the shining height of success throw hack the reliection of the great and unsurpassed Class of ' 07. 1910. F lvESIlMEN you are, fresh kids you were and fresh guys you will he unless you start out on the right road. Put no stock in the idle chatter of ' 08, they mean to use you for a second hddle ; rather, imitate your ' 00 and with this aim in view hasten along the thorny path to a spot where better classes than you have rested ; to that s]X)t whereon the ' 07 Class obtained a hrm foothold : namely, the spot of victory. 36 1 WAS reading ' the evening paper when my eye was caught by the headlines, “Try Vaillant’s Tw entieth Century Germ Exterminator, the only liquid of its kind. Every bottle guaranteed. Price, $1.00, Howard Lawton sole agent.” “Capital,” I exclaimed, “I’ll get a bottle this very night. John was a classmate of mine and I will stand by old ’07.” While returning with the precious bottle I thought deeply. I had just been asked to analyze the city water, and to find a method of exterminating the germs. Now I would go to the reservoir, use Vaillant’s cure, and save the city water for only $1.00. Next morning I went to Austin Eisher’s Air Transporting Sta- tion and was blown rapidly through a shaft to the reservoir. The day was beautiful, and in the fresh morning air the water lay like a sheet of glass. Carefully I produced the little vial, read the directions, pulled the stop]:)le and prepared to throw the liquid into the water, when suddenly a voice cried, “Stay thy hand, O rash mortal, and unto thee I’ll grant a boon.” “Wha-a-a-t a-art thou?” I faltered, my knees trembling. “I am the spirit of these waters, my servants are the germs, and hadst thou slain them, thou shouldst have perished. Now if thou wilt save them I’ll give thee one wish.” “O spirit ! let me see the Class of 1907 as it is today,” I begged, and as I sat upon the bank I heard the splash of waters and a wave rose gently, while a voice murmured, “Gaze into my depths and thou shalt have thy wish, thou mayst see and hear, but if thou shalt utter one sound the spell will break !” 37 1 looked into tlic ina.i ic wave, and T saw Main street. Along it hastened many ])eo])le, there were antos, airships and cars going by. ( )ne eon -eyanee attracted iny attention. It was an anti(|nated carry- all, fnll of fanners. Such costumes, such gay bonnets, where had I seen them before? W ho eonld they be? “Hurry np. Si, we’ll surely be late,” urged a shrill voice, and as they came nearer I recognized I ' reda Miller and W alker on the front seat, and behind them were Miss Peeler, Aliss Patties and Aliss John- son of Westminster. The horse jogged on, and I followed after. Soon we reached the court house, and as we went in Miss John.son whispered to Mrs. Miller, “d ' hey dew tell that the case is betwixt Air. and Mrs. Drake for a-leaving of the affections.’’ As we entered the court house the clerk, Rnfus Litchfield, read the charges. The case certainly was romantic. In the prisoner’s box sat the bride and groom. Lillian was as bright as a rainbow, her curls still bobbed over her shonlder like a Gibson girl, and the expression on her face as she glared at Delmer reminded me of Paradise Lost. His Honor, Judge W’arner called the court to order and as the good-looking jurors. Priest, Roddy, Stockwell, Ducharme, Eager, Pratt, Vaillant, Warren, Drury and Smith, filed in, I heard some of the ladies in the audience giggle, and a voice that was Henrietta’s murmured, “Ain’t they slick!” Then I looked around me. The audience certainly looked nat- ural ; in 26 once more, for in one corner sat Bailey and Dorothy Con- don holding hands in public, in truth they looked newly married. A few seats ahead were Miss W inslow and Sargent gazing at each other like soft soap in July. Xext them was Ruby with a shorthand note-book which was labelled, “Hints to the newly married.” Beyond were Alisses Twichell and Brown dressed in the latest styles with stunning picture hats. On each was a card marked, “Patronize Mon- sieur Richardson, Ladies’ AJilliner.” I had not time to note more of the audience, for the witnesses were being questioned by the lawyers, Dahill and Miss Kielty, and I heard Tommy Aker answer in ministerial tones, “I was the one that married them, your Plonor, and I have tried to get them into the fold of my church, but — ” “Do you know anything of their personal relations?” questioned Bernardine. “Relations! W’ell, I know Mr. Drake has three brothers and two sisters, and as I passed their house I saw three little drakes splashing in the gutter — ” 38 “Relations toward each other, “ interrupted Dahill. “I married them with my ])lessin« ” answered Tommy. “Next witness,” called the judge. Up stepped Teddy Wray, fair, fat and thirty. She winked at the judge and smiled at the jury, then began to talk. “I knew Drake and Miss MacGeachey in Civics, your honor, they were always whispering and tee-hee-ing, and tee-hee-ing — Say Ed, going to the reunion?” She was suddenly su})pressed by Policeman Herlihy. Miss Upton and Maney testified, but r eally no one seemed to know anything about the case. 1 was getting bored and thinking of going home when Warner grew hungry and ordered a recess of the court. In came Lahti and Smith dressed like messenger boys, bearing sandwiches and pitchers of ice spring water! ! from Wilson ' s. Such a chatter of women ' s tongues you never heard. It seemed as if every one began shaking hands and saying, “Meet me at the reunion tonight.” A reunion, and I was deprived of the speech and every one else talking. O Tempora, O Mores! I went behind a group of girls and I made out that there was to be a reunion of the class of ' 07 at the Wilder Hotel. In the midst of the social a loud squeak, as of an immense rat whose tail had been stepped on, was heard. Immediately the ladies jumped on the seats, and held up their skirts. Some screamed loudly, “A mouse, a mouse.” Pratt had the presence of mind to rap loudly on a table and calmed their fears by announcing that it was only Squeak Eager asking for a sandwich. When every one was quieted a voice was heard crying, “Help me down ! Help me down !” and as we looked around we dis- covered Carrie Whitney clinging to the witness box and kicking vio- lently. Gibbie ran to the rescue and lifted her down as if she were breakable. Carrie straightened her hair and then said, “Oh, you hero, you have saved my life !” Gibbie thought she was going to embrace him, so he quickly stepped behind Brown, who got the benefit of the hug. I left the court, and as I went looked into the shop windows. The first one I came to was a candy store, run by Mesdames Desmond and Bullard. I would have gone in but I remembered I hadn’t a cent in my pocket. The next window held a bulletin board with large head- ing, “The Daily Smart Set. Editor-in-chief, Miss Dwyer; Chief 39 ' Palker, Aliss O’Keefe; Artist, Miss Alarchesseault ; Business Man- ag ' er, Miss Dahill; Chief i et)()rters, Misses (iage and Moran. “Cnder the l)oar(l of editors was tlie following ])rief outline of the latest news: “Hairbreadth escape of the airshi]) flyer and its occn])ants!

' ‘Read lectures on ‘Trips to the ] Ioon,’ by the Gongh, Upton, Keyes and W’etherbee quartet. 10c. a copy. On sale here.” I left the bulletin board and sauntered along. In front of the soldiers’ monument was a dense crowd. I edged my way among it and soon found out that a speech was being made by Mae Earle upon Woman’s Rights. She stood upon a barrel which was held up by Misses Litchfield, Littlefield and Deragon. They all looked anxious to have the floor. As Mae waved her arms, she said, “I stand firmly on my principles.” Crash went the bottom of the barrel and Mae fell in. While they were extricating her I left. Soon sweet strains of music came to my ear, familiar sounds as from an orchestra I had heard long ago. I looked all around, and up the street I saw some ladies entering a door. I followed after them, up a flight of stairs, down a long corridor into a hall. Over the door was a neatly printed notice, “G. M. Hawes, Matrimonial Bureau.” There was a partition in the middle of the hall. On one hand was painted, “Gents this way,” on the other, “Ladies this way.” Behold my astonishment when I saw a line of former classmates of the fair sex. jMiss Billings headed the line, followed by Misses Kivlan, Starr, Berg, Powell and Lake, all craning their necks and trying to see their affinity through a small hole in the partition. I looked through the men’s side and there were ' Sir. Dooling, Fred Stockwell and Goddard, looking pale but determined. I nearly fainted to see AYilliam, for I never thought he would have reached that stage. The strains of music I had heard came from an orchestra sitting on a table. There was Conway drumming, Aliss Read and Miss Farrell fiddling, and Ducharme blowing his trombone. They played spiritedly, “How would you like to marry me?” 40 I was always 1)ashful, so T fled from the hall. Somehow I lost my way, turned into the wrong corridor, and found myself in hair dressing parlors where Aliss Sawyer was applying new electric curl- ers to llessie W yeth’s hair. W hen she saw me she yelled, “( )h Heav- ens, a man !” and would have embraced me but 1 managed to get out of that i)lace. W hen I reached the street, it had grown quite dark. I hastened to Whillace flail and such a sight as I beheld. The hall was decorated with purj)le and white and around a table were seated all the members of the class with Roddy at the head. ( )ne chair was vacant. I hastily ste])ped to it. Our president rose and proposed a toast to ' 07, and three ’ rahs. “Rah! Rah! Rah! ’07,” I shouted. The spell waas broken. The waves subsided, all was silent and as I returned homeward, T mur- mured, “LONG fTVE THE CLASS OE W.” 41 SHINING LIGHTS OF ’07 ' flic 1 landsoinest Alan Class Dude . . . .

ALL OVER. 46 THE 1906 FOOTBALL TEAM FOOTBALL EVI R l)efore in the history of footijall in the school has there -L 1)een a team which has won more laurels than that which rep- resented F. II. S. in the fall of 1906. The season was most successful, not only in the number of victories, but also from a financial stand- point. Every g-ame added to the A. A. treasury. This was of course dne to the excellent support of the school. The team, although light, was fast and aggressive, ddironghont the whole season its exhibi- tions were most gratifying to the great crowds that attended and a feeling of pride was always manifest. The Athletic Association elected Carl Dncharme ipresident, Mr. Woodbury secretary and treasurer. Dr. McMnrray and Mr. Bacon advisory mend)ers from the alumni and facnlty respectively. Den- nis Kelliher was assistant to Charles Roddy, who had been elected manager the previous year. John W. Waters, idiysical director of the Y. M. C. A., was elected coach. With a limited experience as a football coach he took the S(inad in hand, and certainly proved himself worthy of the nnder- taking. One explanation of the good showing of the team was dne to the physical condition of the men, which Mr. Waters was espe- cially well cinalified to look after, and in consequence of his training nearly every man on the scpiad gained in weight during the season. Special praise is also dne him for the fine, all-ronnd work of the team. Next to Mr. Waters most credit is dne Capt. Adse, both for his good leadership and his good playing. He proved himself to be one of the best half-backs the school has had in years, and developed into a fine punter. In appreciation of his good work he has been re-elected captain for 1907. The season opened brilliantly in the victory over Ayer. From then on it was a series of victories, replete with good team and indi- vidual work. The very snccessfnl season cnlminated in the Thanks- giving Day game with Leominster. Brilliant playing characterized this game, that of Dncharme and Wdlson being of the spectacnlar order. Ont of nine games played Fitchburg won six, lost two and tied one; scoring 111 points to its opponents’ 36. SCHEDULE AND SCORES October 3, F. H. S. 17, . yer II. S. 0 10, F. 11.

FI. S. can point to with pride; and there is no donbt that it was accomplished mainly through the efforts of the ' 07 players. Manning and Miller proved to be the swift- est pair of forwards that ever struck the school. Foth have a wide rep- utation for scoring, and were a great strength to the team. In the back-field were Roddy and Fisher, who through their steady and consistent ])laying were largely responsible for the success of the team. With these sturdy backs and Litchheld playing the central position F. M. S. had a combination which could be eqnalled by few high school teams in the state. The season opened soon after Christmas with a victory over the Y. IM. C. A. second team. Then followed games with Arms Academy, Melrose, Lowell, W ' orcester, Clardner, Leominster and Cushing sec- (md, most of which resulted in decisive victories for F. H. S. The game with Arms Academy practically started the schedule, and it was in this contest that the lightness of the team proved only to add to its capabilities. Although Melrose won in the next game by a small margin, nevertheless Fitchburg was undaunted, and went to Lowell determined to make up for it. This they did, and despite the reputation the “spindle city” boys had attained, played them to a stand-still. As the Lowell Courier said, “Fitchburg played a clean, consistent game, and deserved victory.” The next game demon- strated continued progress in the development of the team, as Worcester South High was sent home with a tale of woe, having been overwhelmingly defeated. In this game Manning, Roddy and Litchfield played exceptionally well, Capt. Roddy directing his men like a general, and at the same time playing tag with his opponent. Much interest was centered in the clashes with Gardner, but with enormous scores they were twice forced to yield to our superiority. In the game here Leominster was fairly swamped, so much so that help had to be sent down from Fitchburg to show them how to train. Luckily enough they succeeded in landing the last game of the series by a mere point in the last minute of ])lay. Although in floor work our boys played rings around the “shirt-town” quintet, yet there 53 seemed to be a hoodoo with them, as they found it almost impossible to loca te the net. The game with the Y. M. C. A. first team was the fastest and most fiercely contested of the season. At first it seemed to many a foolish project, since in weight and experience the Y. M. C. A. team easily had the advantage, hut when the contest was ended the great crowd that had assembled joined in one accord in acknow- ledgement of the unusually fine exhibition they had been treated to. At the stroke of the gong the score stood 35-19 in favor of the Y. M. C. A. The last game of the season resulted in a victory over the bus- iness iMen, when F. H. S., after completing the longest schedule in its history, brought to a close one of the most successful of its basket ball seasons. In all the games Fitchburg scored 579 points against 345 for its opponents. In the regular scheduled games it scored 469 points against 246 for its opponents, making an average score in each game of 40 to 20. R. B. Charles Roddy, Captain, ’07. R. F. Fred Manning, ’06.

Ifarly in the season Manager Dahill issued a call for players. The fellows responded very well and the prospects were very bright. The first few games only served to show the inexperience of the ])layers. Later when coached l)y Dr. Davis of West bdtchburg the team showed a great im])rovement. ddie prospects for a winning team next year are very bright, Litchfield being the only member who leaves. Ca]3t. Warner will return, and with his teammates working together, a good nine should be the result. The members of the nine are : THE TEAM Warner, Pitcher, Center Field, Captain. McCarthy Center Field, Pitcher, Seidel, Short Stop Hart, Catcher Litchfield, Third Base Newcomb, First Base Littlehale, Right Field Sullivan, Second Base Starr, Left Field Crowell, Substitute.

It was conducted in the same delii htfnl manner winch characterizes all the social functions of the ' 07 class. Dancing- was in (jrder from ei ht until one, and all enjoyed themselves to the utmost. ' Sir. and Mrs. Hoyt and ] Iiss Woodward kindly chaperoned the i)arty. FACULTY RECEPTION T he annual reception of the hig h school faculty to the Seniors and their ])arents was held in the high school building December 7. Mr. and Mrs. WModhnry and Mr. and Mrs. Joy received in the pret- tily decorated library. Immediately following the reception an enter- taining program was presented in the assembly hall, and a most suc- cessful evening closed with dancing. This is the one time in our school life when teachers, ])arents and pnj ils can mingle informally, and as a class we thank the faculty for the delightful time they gave us. LAMBDA SIGMA PARTY Z ETA cha])ter of the Lambda Sigma fraternity gave its annual dance in W allace hall December 23. The hall was appropri- ately decorated with Christmas wreaths and bells, the stage was banked with palms and ferns, and the electrical effects were unusually charming. Mend)ers of the fraternity received the ])articipants. E. Percival Coleman played in his customary brilliant style, and danc- ing was greatly enjoyed by all. This party was one of the most delightful of the seascm and was in every way a great success. ZETA PHI PARTY W ALLACE hall, on Xew Year ' s eve, was the scene of a very j)retty party, when the members of the Zeta Phi fraternity entertained their many friends. Dancing was the feature of the eve- ning, and was unusually enjo 3 able. As the old year died, chimes 60 announced the birth of the new, the customary greetings and wishes for good luck were ])assed along the hall, and dancing was continued in ld07. d he party was a great success, and the inend ers of the fra- ternity are to he congratulated. GARDNER RECEPTION T TTE Seniors gave their annual reception to the ’07 class of the (lardner high school hddday evening, January 18, in Wallace hall, d ' he officers and chaperons received, and after the reception dancing was enjoyed. During intermission refreshments were served, and at midnight the guests took their special for home, infinitely pleased with their 1 ' itchburg friends. NEWMAN CLUB PARTY O N h ' riday evening. May 10, in Wallace hall, the Newman club was rcsiponsible for a delightful dancing ])arty. Mr. Frank Her- som rendered music in a manner most pleasing, and made dancing very enjoyable. Throughout the evening delicious frappe was served. The members of the club could not possibly have entertained their friends more ro 3 ally, and all present wished wilh one accord that the party might be followed by others of the same nature. This is the intention of the club and, as we congratulate the i)resent members on their first party, we wTh the best of luck to their successors. SECOND SENIOR CLASS PARTY T he Senior class gave its second class party May 17 in Wallace hall. It was a delightful night, the music was unusually fine, the guests were all in the best of si:)irits, and iviend)ers of the ’07 class were the hosts. What more could be asked? It is needless to say that it was a red-letter day for all who attended the dance, and that all who were present feel that the Seniors can never be sufficiently thanked for the good time they gave their friends. 61 SENIOR DEBATE S is customary each year, a (lel)ate held tills Sprins in assembly rs. hall, by teams chosen from the Senior class. The (piestion, " Resolved, that a judicial board established by Coni ress, shall settle all dis])ntes between capital and labor,” was a dilficnlt one; it recpiired careful research and study, and bron iit forth to the best advantaj: e the ability of the speakers. The affirmative side consisted of F. Bai- ley, leader; If. Dahill and Misses Carter and Kielty; the negative, of V. Aker, leader; C. Roddy and Misses W hitney and Derag on. The judges, Judge Thomas F. Gallagher, ' Sir. R. N. W ' allis and Rev. Dr. James Chalmers, decided in favor of the affirmative side. 62 2jamb a igma iFratrruitii (Cliaptrr iSnll Alplia 1892 Central High School Detroit, Mich.

Although an attempt was made last year to form a male chib the lack of tenors prevented it from progressing. This year, under the able guidance of Mr. Woodward, some of the girls organiz ed, and great success has resulted therefrom. The Club assisted at the graduation exercises in a most pleasing manner. The first number was given with a snap and vim, and in perfect harmony. Wagner’s “Pilgrim’s Chorus” (Tannhauser) was also rendered. In this number the club was assisted by a dozen male voices, and its rendition was splendid. hMllowing is the list of officers and members: President, Hazel Litchfield, ’07.

An Englishman, but no EARLE, i)assed by just as our teacher caught a big fish and was suddenly jerked into the water. The Britisher said he did not envy the teacher because it was DAA ' YER on the shore. One of our YAILEAXT number jumped in and saved the teacher, who had succeeded in keeping his hold on the line.

Don’t whistle in the buildini (if you think you will et caught) 2. Mark the walls with your i)encil when passing through the cor- ridors. 3 . Throw waste paper on the floor; the janitor is paid for picking it up. 4. Don’t “rubber-neck” the statutes. 5. Lean against the walls; they’re apt to fall in if you don’t. 6. i Iake as much noise as you can with your seat in the assembl} hall. C. T. likes it. 7. W hen you hear the first bell ring, yell “Fire.” 8. Don’t take any back talk from the teachers, es])ecially the prin- cipal. 9. Go along the halls in pairs. 10. Don’t end the year with less than nine demerits. 11. W ' hen there is a hard exam, stay away. 12. If you don’t know your lesson throw a bluff. 13. Keep your desk cover up; the teacher can’t see what you are doing. 14. Go down street during study hours; nobody will miss you. 15. Don’t study on pleasant days; go out and enjoy the fresh air. 16. Don’t laugh when the orchestra makes a mistake; you don’t come to school to laugh. 17. Have some extracts and chocolate handy so that when the chem- istry teacher is absent you can make candy ; that’s what they keep sugar in the lab’ for. 18. Make all the noise you can in the physical laboratory; the Latin class in 26 would rather hear that than recite. 19. Tip the janitor and you can l)uy lunch at any time. 20. Don’t smoke above the basement. If glances could kill who would be living in 27? Our friends have gathered in the hall And all at once begin to bawl, As slowly to the stage we march. Our trousers pressed with piles of starch. 72 MEMORABLE EVENTS. The day that : Gibson wasn’t can ' ht cril)1)in,i ' in Tri Carrol g ' ot his hair cut. Miss Mason, ’08, didn’t know her Greek. Leon (L.

Dncharme didn’t get his Innch for nothing. Robbins, ’08, got a demerit for winking at the girls. Nolan bathed Manning with cocoa. The orchestra played well. Hoyt treated iron with red hot steam.

Miss O’Keefe said her voice was cracked. Mr. Hoyt didn’t recommend Harvard. Miss Smith didn’t cpiote her friend Channing. C. T. forgot to come to school. Aliss Greene gave a reasonable lesson to her class. IMiss Smith used the same text book as the class. Joy forgot to speak to “those ])eople in the back of the room.” Ex-Prof. Randall got a new suit. Hawes didn’t make love in nigger heaven. Vaillant didn’t draw a picture. Hartwell, ’06, was caught thmoking a thigawet. With a cast-down look and an ancient sigh. Ichabod O ite is sitting high He hollas down in his swallow-tail dress, “Don’t fergit the analysis of H 2 S.” 73 LIBRARY RULES I ' or the benefit of ' 08. 1.

A PETITION Oh Zeus ! give ear to suppliants, Have pity on o])pressed ; Our teachers with wild rage give vent And we are quite distressed. Oh, take the strings of lessons. Lessons hard and long. And make from them some ropes, Ropes both good and strong; And to each teacher give one. Our compliments also send. And grant each one may hang himself. This is our prayer — Amen. 74 LATEST PUBLICATIONS “Obstinacy,” a dainty little Doein written by jMiss Shanks and dedicated to the coininittee ineinbers with whom she served. “Ilow it hY ' els to be En af ed,” by Helen Iblliiii s, who speaks from a vast ex])erience.
