‘ J . f The Class Book of Nineteen Hundred and Ten “FACTA NON VERBA” Published June MCMX By the Class of 1910 Fitchburg High School Fitchburg, Massachusetts HON. ARTHUR H. LOWE, HON. ARTHUR H. LOWE. H on. ARTHUR H. LOWE, one of oiir most pul)lic-spirited citi- zens, first served the city as a pnl)lic official in the year 1893, when he was elected mayor of Fitchburg. His work in that office i s known to every good citizen of Fitchburg, and it was greatly through his foresight and energy that the foundations of onr present high school buildings were laid, during his administration. Air. Lowe saw the needs not only of the year 1893 but of generations to come, and used all his influence toward the establishment of a building amply sufficient for those needs. The large enrollment of pupils in the high school, the work of those pupils, and the high standards of the school fully justify Air. Lowe’s action in causing the erection of this splendidly equipped building. To Air. Lowe, as one who has by practical methods shown a deep interest in the welfare of the young people of Fitchburg, we dedicate this book. Soari of iEliitors l|arul ICffiUf oltltnn Hargarrt %iip Austin William iFranris Saly lEllfu g iffplferi laniels JHuriPl (icrtruir lEllintt Sornllfii duJifrpii darl Situs SliDinpsuu SnliErt Oosf Somurui Sarbara Walker I N writing this history the author discovered that it was a much more difficult task than he had anticipated. To be a historian in the tine sense, one should give an uni:)rejudiced record of impor- tant events, showing the relation between them and their causes and effects. There was no trouble in finding the events, but it became doubly difficult for the author, a contemporary, when writing a his- tory of so illustrious a body as the Class of 1910, to refrain from plac- ing undue emphasis and praise on the many glorious deeds done by this class. However, if in the course of this history the reader imag- ines that the author has perhaps been a little partial at times, thereby prejudicing the work, he may ascribe it to the just pride which no member of this class could help feeling when reviewing its course of four years in this high school. The year 1906, following a period of preparation in the grammar school, marked the beginning of our remarkable career. It was a mem- orable day when we first came into the school, giving it new life and fresh spirit. We enlivened the recitations and endeavored to vary the monotony of life for the teachers, but strange to say, some of them didn’t appreciate it. This was a year of preparation. We laid the foun- dations for our future and incidentally amazed our teachers with our great abilities and our unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Our chief occupation was studying, as the well-worn textbooks soon showed, and from our record this year a brilliant future was predicted. The next year we began to take a more active part in school af- fairs. We pursued our studies as diligently as in former days, but we also began to win fame in athletics. As the result of many hard fought battles we won both the football and baseball championships 9 in the Tnter-class games. 1 ' liis year, also, we liad two rc]M cscntatives on the Red and Gray board. In onr junior year we really began to do things. W ' e maintained onr reputation in athletics by again winning the baseball chami)ion- ship and we also ca])tnred the track chami)ionshi]). Our class organized and elected its officers in an exciting session which lasted about half an afternoon, and showed great ])olitical skill on the ])art of some of the members. Our class motto, “Facta, non Gu ba,” was aptly chosen and has been most nobly lived up to, as may be readily seen in reading this history. ffihis year we captured both ])rizes in the prize s])eaking and essay contest, to the great dismay of the seniors. We gave, at this time, our first class party, and the fact that it was a great success is only what might be expected of such a class. As a climax to our social activities we gave a reception to the Seniors. In the play which was ])art of the entertainment several of our members showed great abilities before the footlights. The public, and also the Seniors, were reminded on the Eagles’ field day that we were still doing things by the appearance of a large 1910 banner hung across lain street. It attracted much attention and was referred to in both newspapers as “the most beautiful and striking banner ever unfurled in the history of the high school.” The banner in spite of desperate attempts to capture it, remained in our posses- sion and became the crowning feature of the decorations in our first Senior class party. In our Senior year we came back full of enthusiasm and with the determination to make this a fitting conclusion to our eventful his- tory. This year the Faculty showed their appreciation of us by giving us a magnificent reception. Our class athletics sufifered because nearly all our men were on the school teams, but nevertheless we again won the track champion- ship. There were no Inter-class baseball games this year, so the other classes were spared the necessity of allowing us the baseball cham- pionship for the third time. W e again won both prizes and also honorable mention in the prize speaking contest, thus fully establishing our supremacy in the literary and speaking lines. We g-ave two class parties this year and it is needless to add that these were highly successful in every way. We have gained onr share of honors and perhaps more than onr share of demerits. We have been original. We were the first to institute a class day, when everyone wore the class colors. We have been staunch advocates of the strenuous life. Our mem- bers have been prominent in every part of school life — in athletics, in studies, in speaking and debating, and in all social activities. The girls of the class are noted for their ‘‘beauty, grace, and wit.” In all our social affairs our aim has been to give everybody a good time without regard to labor or expense. This is strikingly illustrated by the reception we gave the Seniors, in our Junior year, when we gave them more ice-cream than they could eat, and as may readily be seen, this was no small amount. We have labored earnestly and unceasingly to set a high standard in the school and a good examjffe for the lower classes. In the short s])ace of four years we have established a record that will be regarded with wonder and awe by future classes as unequalled in the annals of the school. Our teachers have shown great reluctance in parting with a class which has manifested such intense interest in everything pertaining to the school, but June closes the history of this renowned class and we go forth into a field of larger activities and greater opportunities with the realization that ‘‘The tissue of the life to be We weave with colors all our own, And in the field of Destiny We reap as we have sown.” FLORENCE FRANCIS SULLIVAN. “A smile for all, a welcome glad, A jovial coaxing way he had.” F. F. has been president of our class for two years, lie was one of our best athletes up to his senior year, when he was compelled to leave them alone. He finds time to study, however, to run the class, and to keep on good terms with Miss Gifford. Noted for his contagious laugh. ESTHER RACHAEL COOPER. ‘‘Oh, thou! who poured the patriotic tide. That streamed through Wallace’s undaunted heart.” Rehtse is one of those favored people whom every- body likes and who likes everybody. As vice-president she is Sully’s right-hand man. Esther would get along all right in school if there weren’t so many study hours in 26. Her favorite pastime is studying six hours at a stretch on her civics. MARGARET HYDE AUSTIN. ‘‘As merry as the day is long.” Margaret is one of the most popular girls in the class. Her inspiration enabled Joel to make $40 on the first Senior Class Party. She was elected to the office of class secretary, but was compelled to leave in the middle of the year on account of illness and her absence was deeply felt by all. Noted for her cheerfulness. THOMAS FRANCIS BRESNAHAN. ‘‘At every interview their route the same.” Tom has held the class funds all this year and hasn’t skipped town yet. Tom is about the classiest all-round athlete we have had in school for a long time. He captained the track and baseball teams and was temporary captain of the football team. He finds time to enjoy himself da(i)ly. Noted for his athletic prowess. 12 RUSSELL FRANCES ALDRICH. “Arise! shake the hayseed from off thee!’’ Russell hails from West Fitchburg but so far has been able to live down the disgrace.

Noted for her devotion to physics. 13 JAMES ANTHONY BRESNAHAN. “A courier brave and true was he.” “Dink” has won great renown in his position of offiee-boy. He always rushes aroutid the building as though he were a busy man. We do not know what Mr. Woodbury will do without him Chief occupation — running errands for C. T.

She once astonished everybody by smiling at Mr. Wood- bury. Noted for her kindness to Reddy. JULIA LORETTA BUCKLEY. ‘‘She’ll not be hit by Cupid’s arrow.” Julia is an ardent admirer of Mr. Benedict, though she spends a lot of time in the office visiting C. T. She knows how to take care of herself and is chiefly occupied in doing so. ROY IRVING BULL. ‘‘Hang sorrow ! Care will kill a cat And therefore let’s be merry.” Roy never lets his studies weigh too heavily on his mind. He is a star basketball player and a good athlete. He always likes to jolly the teachers, espe- cially Miss Day. Noted for his attentions to Esther. 14 LEvSLIH LITTLEFIELD CATE. “The windy satisfaction of the tongue.’’ Leslie is very energetic. He spends part of his en- ergy in selecting sporty socks and the rest in entering to Miss Smith. He is one of our greatest orators and is an old offender on the platform. Perhaps that ex- plains why his voice is so gentle. Noted for the aforesaid voice. JAMES FRANCIS COLBERT. “ Honest labor bears a lovely face.’’ “ Dutchy ” is a typical Deutscher, and although ac- counted one of our silent members he can make him- self heard at the proper time. He plans to keep bach- elor apartments so isn’t to be jollied about the ladies. Noted for minding his own business. RUTH MARGUERITE CLEVERLY. “To be loved is all I need, And whom I love, I love indeed.’’ In this case Pensel, ’09, is the favored individual.

PAUL WILLIAM DALEY. ‘‘ Beware, my friend, of crystal brook Or fountain lest that hideous hook, Thy nose, thou chance to see.” Paul used to come to school so seldom that we can’t say much of his school life.

Noted for his constancy — it runs in the family. 16 I i 1 WILLIAM FRANCIS DALY. “And e’en though vanquished he cotild argue still.’’ Bill has the honor not only of being the hand- somest man in the chiss but also the soeial lion.

It is said that Muriel is fickle but we may say that she is still true to “ Howdy.” Noted for those eyes. PEARL MILDRED FARNSWORTH. “A simple maid and proper too.’’ Pearl is certainly one of the class grinds She does not believe in life’s frivolities and pleasures and there- fore has partaken of few in our high school life. Noted for her faithful studying. MARGARET LORETTA FARRELL. “Whistling girls and crowing hens Always come to some bad end.” The corridors, in spite of rules to the contrary, are filled with Margie’s musical tunes.

ELLEN JEANETTE GORAY. “Before my mirror night and day, At primping I am busy.” Yes, Ellen has some hair but the high school fel- lows do not quite come up to her standard, so she confines herself to an outsider.

She generally has her arms full of books to make her look studious. Noted for her goggles. MARION ELSIE LEONARD. “She knits her childish brow With stout resolve to evolve Some mountain-sized idea.” Marion may be termed short and sweet. She is very active and is never quiet. Her tongue seems to have discovered the secret of perpetual motion. She is always mistaken for Marion C. Leonard. WINIFRED JANE LIVERMORE. “I have gentle words wherewith to greet thee.” Winifred is so tall that strangers often mistake her for a member of the faculty. She seems to enjoy life and usually has her lessons. Noted for her height. 24 RUTH GERTRUDE MANEY. “Sober, steadfast, and demure.” Ruth has worked hard for four years for her diplo- ma. She believes that silence is golden, and so works much and says little. Chief occupation — studying. ARTHUR JACKMAN MARCHANT. “ And when a lady’s in the case You know all other things give place.” Arthur’s chief weakness is girls, and he has a new one every little while. Ruth is his latest.

Chief amusement — visiting Ruth STEPHEN JAMES MARKHAM. “As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean.” “Sky” has dreamed along with us for four years without over-exerting himself until he was chairman of the second Senior Class Party. We alwa3’S thought him good-natured until lately, when he has proven to be “cross.” Chief occupation — dodging work. CHARLES HENRY MCCARTHY. “Who to a woman trusts his peace of mind. Trusts a frail bark with a tempestu ous wind.” This must be Charlie’s motto, for he surelv lives up to it and trusts no woman with his.

Noted for his attempts at bluffing. 25 LILLIAN BEKNADINE MCCARTHY. “Of manners gentle, of affections mild.” Lillian has tried to follow the line of least resist- ance and has passed through her four years with very little trouble.

He has also won considerable renown on the platform and was a speaker in the public debate. Noted for his hot air. MARGARET ELIZABETH McDONALD. “ Prosperous life, long and ever happy.” Yes, Margaret is almost mar— we mean she doesn’t spend all her time in studying. But Margaret likes him even though he does boast of the blue and white. Noted for her good taste. MARY PAULINE McGRATH. “ Hail to thee, blithe spirit.” Mary is another cheerful person who always car- ries a smile around with her. She is not exactly what we would term quiet, and perhaps this is the reason why she now sits in front of the desk. Noted for her smile. 26 ALICE ANNE McNAMARA. “Whose medium body lodged a mighty mind.’’ Alice used to get lost in the crowd because of her petite size, and when not lost she is tr dng to grow tall to prevent it. Her voice is correspondingly tiny, to Miss Stratton’s annoyance. Noted for the good marks she gets. HELEN MARGARET MULHERN. “ Few words suffice.’’ Helen is one of our mum members. She doesn’t say very much, but once in a while gains courage to make a speech in civics and then blushes for an hour afterwards. Chief occupation — studying. NELS ALBIN NELSON. “ Vessels large may venture more, But little boats should keep near shore.’’ Nels sometimes suffers at the hands of some of the big boys on account of his size. When he sat in 32 his shoes were to be found anywhere but on his feet. Besides being an excellent artist he is one of our best speakers. Noted for his pompadour. ELLA NICHOLS. “A rose, but set with little wilful thorns.’’ Ella has the distinction of being our smallest lass, yet she isn’t always quite as innocent as she looks, for she finds time to make trouble for the teachers. She used her persuasive tongue to good advantage in the Debating Club, Noted for her cheerfulness. 27 CATIIBKINB FRANCBS O’CONNOR. “ Blue were her eyes as the fairy flax.” Catherine looks demure but in this case looks are deceiving.

KATHERINE CECELIA RATCHFORD. “And such a one do I remember, Whom to look at was to love.’’ Kitty is one of our “dreams,” that is, we mean she is one of our good-looking girls. She always manages to make life interesting for those about her. Noted for her baby eyes and curls. MAY MARGARET REILLY. “ Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low, an excellent thing in woman.’’ May keeps out of sight as much as possible, but we suspect this is to give her more leeway for mis- chief-making. She flirts desperately with Air. Albro, but in vain, since he is already elsewhere attached. Noted for her gentle voice. ESTHER ROWE ROSS. “Her friends — they are many; Her foes — are there any?’’ Esther is one of our good little girls although she has been known to be bad on occasions. Her favor- ite color is red — because it has a fascination for Bulls, we suppose. She is a member of Mr. Woodward’s special chorus and is one of our best artists. Chief amusement — entertaining Bull. 29 ALICE MARGARET RYAN. “ Few taller are so youiiK.” Alice evidently believes in growing. She also holds the opinion that silence is a virtue, so we seldom hear from her except when she makes a recitation in civics. Noted for her height.

She has paid attention to her lessons and we expect to see her filling a good posi- tion in some office soon. Chief amusement — carrying books home. GLEN SALMOND. ‘‘Wait till you hear me from the pulpit; there you cannot answer me.” Glen is one of our football and track men. Al- though always busy studying, he endeavors to have a good time — so good that he took a five-year course to enjoy it. His ambition — to be a minister. GRAFTON FOSTER SARGENT. ‘‘The force of his own merit makes his way.” Grafton is not so quiet as might be supposed. He was never known to speak to a girl, but spends his time in more profitable ways. He is another of our artists. Noted for his drawing abilities. 30 ANNIE LEWIS SEARS. “Only silence suiteth best.” Annie evidently believes that she should be seen, not heard. As a rule she does not make any unneces- sary ' noise, but once she gets talking, she never stops. Chief amusement — reading reference books for civics. LEO MARTIN SEXTON. “One of nature’s noblemen.” Although Leo didn’t come into prominence until this year, he has made good. Besides playing base- ball and managing the track team he takes a little jaunt to Leominster once in a while. Noted for his batting average. xMARY ELIZABETH SHEEHAN. “No lark more blithe than she.” May is the cheeriest individual in the class. Her smile can be seen the length of the corridor. She sits in the front seat, so she can’t make much trouble, but we wouldn’t vouch for her if otherwise located. Noted for her never-failing smile. ELLEN ELIZABETH SMITH. “ Full many a flower was born to blush unseen.” Nellie has completed her four years’ course “un- assailed and assailing none.’’ P erhaps that is why she gets good marks. She likes some of the Juniors pretty well. Noted for her good behavior. 31 FRED WILEY vSMITII. “Good sir, wherefore talk 3’ou so?’’ Fred is one of our youthful inenibers. He is so busy working for the Sentinel that he finds little time to study. He spends all his energies in school in pre- paring civics. Noted for his “why.” ANNA DOLORES SULLIVAN. “All hope is lost of any reception into grace.’’ Anna is one of Miss Greene’s favorites, although she would rather be seen than heard. When she isn’t studying she is wheeling a baby carriage. Take it from us, Anna would make a fine nurse. Chief amusement — taking care of baby. HARRY JOSEPH SULLIVAN. “Few things are impossible to diligence and skill.’’ Although Harry has been bus ' trying to “get by,” he has found time to manage the baseball team and to make an occasional visit to Cedar street. Noted as a “plugger.” JULIA FRANCES SULLIVAN. “Of gentle soul, to human race a friend.’’ Julia is indeed gentle. We never have seen her do anything but in a gentle fashion, even to her speech. She spends most of her time at home. Noted for her silent disposition. 32 CARL TITUS THOMPSON. “Oh, how he hateth woman.’’ Carl is without doubt the most original man in the class. He holds the select office of Editor-in-Chief of the Red and Gra}’, and his clever stories have done much to make the paper successful. Noted as a woman-hater. CHARLOTTE HAWLEY THOMPSON. “Procure the vicar to stay for me at church.’’ Lottie seems to enjoy Miss Greene’s company, for she has recited P nglish to her for five years. Her great ambition is to get married. Noted for her good nature. HAROLD LESLIE TILTON. “A man to all his classmates dear.’’ “Fitinie” is by far the best student and the most efficient worker in the class. He has done good work for the Red and Gray, and the Debating Club couldn’t get along without him. Noted for his cheerfulness. ROBERT VOSE TOWNEND. “He’s a man of unbounded head.’’ For four years Bob has been showing the class how to do math. He certainly is clever, however, and won the mathematics prize his junior year. Chief diversions — playing pool and making frequent trips to Shirley. 33 FRANCES ELIZABETH UPTON. “ Her birth, her beauty, crowds and coxirts confess.” Frances is one of the most popular girls in the class. She has regularly attended class i)arties for the , last four years, where she can boast of having broken more than one heart. She is usually, though not al- ways, quiet. Chief occupation — studying. BARBARA WALKER. ‘‘Resigned to live, prepared to die. With not one sin but poetry.” Barbara certainly can write poetry. What could be more inspiring than our class song? We regret to say, however, that Barbara’s chief fault is her un- accountable weakness for red hair. HELEN JOSEPHINE WALSH. ‘‘A maiden never bold, Of spirit so still and quiet That her motions blushed at herself.” Helen is our most silent member, but when she does say anything she speaks in French, for she is one of Miss Cowles’ French stars. Noted for her modesty. KATHERYN TERESA WALSH. ‘‘ She bore herself So gently that the lily on its stalk Bends not so easily its dewy head.” Katheryn always arrives in school just as the last bell is ringing, but she is seldom late. She is very quiet and does not attract attention to herself. Noted for her pompadour. 34 PRISCILLA LOUISE WEISSBACH. “Speak low if you speak of love.’’ This certainly applies to Priscilla, for she has very little to say. If she has any love affairs she is Weiss (wise) and keeps them to herself. Noted for her proficiency in German. GEORGIAN A WHEELOCK. “That artless blush and modest air, So fatally beguiling.’’ Georgiana is very popular at school, especially with the boys. Owing to a coasting accident she was obliged to leave school in the middle of the term and her absence was felt by all. Noted for her liking for “ Bulls.” STANLEY FRANCIS WHITE. “ For some of us know a thing or two.’’ Stanley is another of our farmers and hails from Shirley. His special subject is chemistry, and he is seen quite often in the chemical laboratory in the after- noon, entertaining some of the Junior girls. Chief amusement — making Nelson giggle. HARRY DAVID WILBUR. “ Fresh every hour.’’ “Doc” is one of our rising business men. He used to help Mr. Burrage, but now likes the automobile business pretty well. He seems very fond of the girls and likewise of himself. Noted for his budding whiskers. 35 MABEL LILLIAN WILSON. “Alas, the love of woman! it is known To be a lovely and a fearful thing.” Mabel doesn’t trouble the rest of us much. She is too interested in Gifford to have time for much of any- thing else. Noted for her fidelity to G. 11. PHILIP JOHN WOOD. “Hear ye not the hum of mighty workings of a mighty brain ? ” Phil is one of our staid old Daniel Websters and spends most of his time jollying Miss Smith with his profound knowledge (?) of civics. He has been fre- quently discovered behind the door in 26 playing “craps.” Noted for his flashy vests. ALICE LAURA WOODWORTH. “Such a one I do remember Whom to look at was to love.” Glen’s departure was a sad blow to .Alice, and she has not yet gotten over it. She spends much of her time studying and is especially fond of Latin. Chief occupation — studying. PAUL WRIGHT. “ How doth the busy little bee Improve each shining hour.” Paul is one of our little men. He seems very quiet, and we thought he had nothing to do with the weaker sex until we found that he played tennis with the chorus girls at Whalom. Noted for his artistic abilities. 36 IN MEMORIAM Ethel Mary Welch CLASS OF 1910 Korn March 4, 1892 Died April 25, 1910 Higher yet and higher, out of clouds and ni ht, Nearer yet and nearer rising to the light; Light serene and holy, where my soul may rest.

At twelve o ' clock it bade us meet In chapel once again; ddiere was many a doubtful heart that beat In the Class of 1910. A came at the stroke of the ])assing bell, A ' onder dispelled our fears ; A stranger said, “Will you kindly tell Of your plans for future years?” ' Twas Russell Aldrich first in sight, He faced old 1910 — “A wondrous look I ' m going to writ e. Giving ‘The Rights of i Ien ! ' " Then iMargaret Austin had the the floor — A maiden good and true — “Hy mission now, forevermore. Is helping others through.” Pearl Beauregard then did we see, ith voice and manner curt — “I ' ve fears that I shall always be An ever-conquering flirt.” Xext Ida Blanchard did appear — “A nurse Til try to be. And calm each patient ' s awful fear Of ether’s lethargy.” Then spoke Bertha Boutwell fair, Of credit and renown. “To learn to teach shall be my care.” “Mine too, " said Gladys Brown. James Bresnahan declared with might, “If e ' er I get the chance, I ' ll spend one whole eternal night In learning how to dance.” Then Tommy Bresnahan did we spy, With voice and manner gay — “Although an athlete am I I’ll still have time for yiay.” Julia Buckley rose to view — “I know not what to say. i Iy future, friends, I’ll leave to you Till some far distant day.” Gp spoke Roy Bull — “I’m going to quit Trusting myself to luck. And since I have the keenest wit I think I’ll write for Puck.” A bang! and there was Leslie Cate ! “For me there’s not much choice. Alas, I know not wdiat my fate Until I’ve tamed my voice.” Ruth Cleverly addressed the throng In manner rather haughty : “It vill not be so very long Before I answer Shorty.” " iola Cofman took the stand — “yiusic shall lead the way. 50 And with my fiddle in my hand ril play the livelong day.” James Colbert slowly rose and said, “The North Pole I shall seek. Pm sure I shall come in ahead And find it in a week.” Esther Cooper, next in line, Revealed her plan to us : “A little man Em going to find And one that I can boss.” We saw two big brown eyes so clear Look at ns from above ; Miss Cross’s plan then did we hear — “I’ll write a book on ‘Love.’ ” “As for me,” quoth Stowers Curry, “The ministry’s my aim ; Though I’m never in a hurry. Still I’ll win my little game.” Next upon Muriel did we gaze; She winked at the boys and then Said, “I shall spend my future days In breaking the hearts of men.” And then a lass with golden hair Disclosed to us her plan : “All in love and war is fair. So it’s love and Bresnahan.” Lo, William Daly came in sight — “I’ll spend my future days In teaching how to be polite In diplomatic ways.” Paul Daley said, “I think I can With great security. C)l)en in some foreign land A haberdashery.” Then Ellen Daniels had the floor — “A student’s life I’ll lead, A scholar I forevermore The deepest bc oks will read.” “A vaudeville show I’m going to start,” Giles Desmond next did say, McCarthy said, “Then I’ll take part And dance and sing and play.” “The world is but a joke to me,” Declared Miss Donahoe ; “I’ll live in jest and jollity. And join a minstrel show.” Pearl Larnsworth spoke in man- ner shy, “I want you all to know. I’ll spend my life in learning why I never had a beau.” Margaret Larrell slowly came And had her little say : “I’ll never set the world aflame. I’ll simply plod my way.” ’Twas Lena Llagg and Bessie Lorbes Came next into our sight — “We are women sufifragets. And for the cause we’ll fight.” Dot Godfrey rose and coyly said, “I’ll spend a lifetime so: In finding out how one small head Can carry all I know.” Ellen Goray made her speech — “In life ’twill be my care In travclin far-a1)roa(l to teach Mow to do the hair.” ()h, hush! Our hearts refused to beat — “I’ll teach you how to love” Ih ' oclaimcd a voice so wondrous sweet — ’Twas Gertrude Laura Gove. Miss Gustafson in line was next. Her voice was sham and clear — ‘ ' Friends, I shall always preach the text, ‘Of teachers have no fear. ' " Giff Hartwell, then, with tone so g ' ruff — " To seek do I intend The simple art of how to bluff ; Fll use it to the end.” ] liss Hassett said, " ] [y future’s plain ; A spinster I shall be.” " The same with me,” quoth Mar- garet Kane, " Forever, you shall see.” John Healy’s voice did clearly sound — " A waiter is my plan ; For surely I can wait around. And be a waiting man.” John Herlihy then took the stand, And with his smile so rare Said, " I will shine in every land Because of my golden hair.” " Grand opera has in me a star Of credit and of fame ; My voice will then be heard afar,” Ruth Hilton was her name. Said lArry Holden, " T shall win My Alice if I can; But first I ' ll co])y right my grin, ”JAvould be the safest plan.” Lura Houghton had her Bing, Moth confidence spoke she, " F’m going to try to learn to sing A song in the ])roper key.” Ira Joel took his place — " Fm not sure what Fll do; But just so long as I have Grace I wouldn’t care, would you?” ’Twas Elbe Kennelly next we heard — “An old maid’s life for me.” But Esther Kingsbury had her word — " Nay, I shall married be.” Herbert Kirby did quickly say, " Though I can’t be captain, yet I’ll spend many a happy day Mffth my little cigarette.” Said Lempi Koski, ‘T shall pass Just as a maiden fair.” “That’s not my aim, I want some class,” Ruth Maney did declare. Then Alice Lavers did we hear; She slowly took her part — " My future, friends, is very clear Eor Joe has ‘Peirced’ my heart.” And Alary Elsie Lenehan Prepared her tale to tell — “I’ll be an actress if I can, Eor surely I act well.” Then Alarion Charlotte Leonard rose — " A non-rat league’s my work ; y n(l when as president I pose, My care I’ll never shirk.” And Marion Elsie Leonard said, ‘ ' I quite admire your scheme, I lit it was always in my head To form a football team.” Winifred Livermore took part — “In life it is my call. In teaching to the world the art Of how to grow so tall.” And next we heard Red Mar- chant’s fate; It surely was the truth : “Although I’ll study to debate, I shan’t forget my Ruth.” Then Sky Markham rose to say “I shall never work too hard.” “And I shall live the self same way,” Responded Philip Wood. “To be in style is my greatest aim,” Miss McCarthy did declare. Miss McDonald said, “I’m not the same. Lor I don’t care what I wear.” McCully said, “A rich man I Before long, too, I guess. Demerit slips from me they’ll buy Lor dear old L. H. S.” IMiss McGrath said, “I a man Will seek for future years.” “And I will also, if I can,” Said Annie Lewis Sears. And then a little maid so shy, MacNamara was her name. Said, “I shall do my best and try To find a path to fame.” Said Miss Mulhern with might and vim, “Athletics I shall take. Then I’ll come back and build a gym Lor Mr. Woodbury’s sake.” Nels Albin Nelson rose to say. With small and squeaky voice, “An elocutionist’s life I’ll play. Or bachelor’s. Take your choice.” Next prepared her tale to tell. Miss Nichols, our smallest lass : “Since I can talk so very well. As an agent I should pass.” “Since in anything I start I’ll surely have great honor, I needn’t worry, ’cause I’m smart,” ’Twas Catherine O’Connor. Mary O’Connor next did rise — “Although it may seem strange. The whole class soon I shall sur- prise. My last name I shall change.” On Annie Parkhurst did we look — “My head’s so full of stuff. That I am going to write a book Entitled “‘How to bluff.’” Said Alice Pepin then so low, “I have the queerest notion. That I can always hoe my row With the help of elocution.” Joe Peirce strode across the stage — “Though I’ll ne’er have crown or palace. 53 I’m goini to live to j ood old a![ 2 c In company with Alice.” Next came Miss Ratchford, tall and thin — ” ’Twill always be my care, To show how with one single pin I can do my curly hair.” ‘T’m going to join the business life,” May Reilly took the stand, ‘‘And free from home’s great care and strife. I’ll travel through the land.” Up jumped a maid of beauty rare, Miss Ross then took her part : “In life I’ll always earn my fare From the greatest works of art.” “A cooking teacher I shall be,” Sara Ryan gayly said. But Helen Walsh quoth, “Not for me, I’ll cook for two instead.” Miss Ryan said, “I’ll write a song The orchestra can play.” Miss Sheehan quoth, “Before so long I’ll be earning teacher’s pay.” er’s pay.” Grafton Sargent slowly spoke — “I’ll not join the social whirl, And too I never will be broke For I hate the name of girl.” — “A comet I am going to own And name it after me ; And then will Sexton’s name be known Like Halley’s ’cross the sea.” Said Nellie Smith, “I’ll do my best d ) change my ])rescnt name; It sounds so much like all the rest It has such worldly fame.” Glen Sahnond said, “Aly lot is plain, I’m going to live alone.” “No use in saying that again,” Quoth Smith in hapi)y tone. Anna Sullivan then said, “I know just what I’ll do; I’m going to change my hair so red To some more quiet hue.” Our president then did we see. Truly the best of men ; Whate’er he does we know he’ll be A credit to 1910 — “Debating is my great delight. And if the fates permit,” Quoth he, “I’ll talk with all my might And in Congress will I sit.” Then Mr. Sullivan we saw The one we know as Harry — “ ’Tis my intent to study law” Spake he, “and then to marry.’’ Miss Sullivan’s voice did clearly sound. And Julia told her plan: “I’m simply going to wait around Until I catch a man.” Carl Titus Thompson, yes, ’twas he Who said, “Friends, can’t you guess 54 My future? I’m going to be A second William S.” Charlotte Thompson said, ‘T’ll try To stop this awful fuss; The faculty I’ll pacify, Who ran away from us.” Harold Tilton next arose — “An author’s cares are great. LUit as my past experience shows. Their burden is my fate.” Bob Townend then so dignified Said, “Easy is my path, h or I can say with greatest pride That I’m a shark at math.” And Frances Upton so sedate Said, “Surely there’s no hurry. For opportunities I’ll wait; My creed is ‘never worry.’ ” And then the next one came in sight— “Since I am not a talker. Both prose and poetry I’ll write,” Her name was Barbara Walker. Kathryn Walsh said, “As for me, I’ll copyright my walk.” Quoth Bertha Joslin, “That may be, But I must learn to talk.” Priscilla Weissbach faintly said, “A school I’m going to start; I think that it will be co-ed, I’ve that design at heart.” Stanley White said, “I shall aid The coming generation. And burn up every copy made Of Burke’s Conciliation.” Harry Wilbur gayly spoke, “A higher sphere I’ll gain. I’ll rise above the common folk. I’ll buy an aeroplane.” ATabel Wilson faced us all — “I’ll do my little part well; My castle in the air won’t fall. For I adore Giff Hartwell.” ’Twas Alice Woodworth had her word : “My voice I’m going to train, So in the future I’ll be heard. The worth of this is plain.” Then Paul Wright slowly took the chair — “An artist I shall be, And paint and play songs sweet and rare, In perfect harmony.” ’Twas thus the story told aloud, As it stands by help of pen. And we will make F. H. S. proud Of dear old 1910. B.

T the 1)eginning ' of the season Fitchburg ' was represented by one of the fastest football teams in its history, and gave great prom- ise for the season. But owing to a diagreement between ATr. Woodbury and the team, the latter was disbanded after playing six games of its scheduled eleven. The fact that we beat Leominster five to nothing almost made up for the defeats suffered towards the last of the season. Tommy Bresnahan, as temporary captain, was the consistent per- former of the season, and with Amiott, Kelly, Phillips and Bath, played in all the games. . THE SUMMARY. Sept. 25 At Fitchburg F. H.

He was McCall, who took second place in the shot put, which gave Clinton the only three ])oints that school had to its credit.

O WING to a woeful lack of school spirit, Fitchburg High, with no coaching to speak of, landed third place in the Wachusett In- terscholastic Outdoor meet held at Clinton on June 4. Clinton won the pennant with a total of 52 points, Leominster was second with 39, and Fitchburg was third with 26. Even in the Junior events, where Fitchburg was supposed to be particularly strong, she could only get third place. Leominster got 23 points, Clinton 12 and Fitchburg 9. To say the result of the meet was a surprise is putting it mildly, for Fitchburg has generally been supposed to have the best track team in the league. Tommy Bresnahan, captain of our team, was as usual the bright star, and it wasn’t his fault that Fitchburg didn’t win the meet. He secured 21 of Fitchburg’s 26 points, while Schuster of Clin- ton had 20 points. THE SUMMARY. MAJOR MEET. C. H. S. F. H. S. 100-yard dash, Pole vault. Shot put, 120-yard high hurdles.

Downey, the old Amherst star, and he turned ont one of the best baseball teams the school has had for years. The team was a success as a team, but, financially speaking, the spirit that over seven hundred high school pnjiils showed was a dis- grace to the school, and we hojie that something ' will happen to wake the pupils np. The hitting of Captain Bresnahan, Sexton, Kirby, Darcy and Rich- ardson, the ])itching of Morrill, and the fielding of V. V. Daly and Smith were the features of the season.

Miss Whitney, ’ll, should be natural. Taft, ’ll, should be sensible. Whdght smoked a cig arette. The orchestra played something on the right key. Wilbur hu ' got to be fresh. Miss Daniels didn’t have her lesson. Miss Cowles said what she meant or meant what she said. C. T. should get a Dutch cut. Cate wore black socks to school. Patricia should attempt to ride a wheel. Bresnahan should lose his curls. Mabel or Gifford slundd be seen walking alone. Nelson should be minus his ]:)ompadour. Air. Woodbury should sing during the opening exercises. CLASS MAXIMS. Never study if you can do anything else. Never do your Math, before school. Save it for the German hour. Never read outside a textbook. Plan to take a nap during the morning exercises. The singing won’t disturb you. Have all the dances you can on Friday nights. It’s lots of fun to see people fall down in the corridors on Monday. Never put anything in a notebook until the day before it is due. Never sing in assembly hall. Come up in the afternoon and play tag in 26. The ninth grade will enjoy it. Never flunk a recitation if you can bluff it. Use the telephone all you want. That’s what it’s for. Have your friends call you up during your hardest recitations. 91 Never sto]) talkiui ' when the bell rin s. " bake your own demerit slips to the offiee (if you can). They’ll be more apt to i ct there. Always chew spearmint in Miss Day’s room. She is particularly fond of it. If no one is looking, slide down the banisters. It saves time. WE STILL WONDER What F. II. S. will do without 1910. Who will cut np in 26 next year. Wdiy r ob studies in 31 sixth hour. Why Miss Pairpoint stuck by “Pop.” If Bull is ever serious. Since walking is good for reductive purposes why Miss Greene persists in riding to school and Miss Stratton walks. W here ]Mr. Downey learned to blush. If Miss Smith will ever use that marriage license which she claims to have. If C. T. knows that Holden broke training in 27. Wdiy C. T. had a “pen” built for himself in the office. Wdio paid for the drying oven that White blew np in, in the chem- ical laboratory. Why Mr. Hunter is usually in a “Brown” study. Wdiy Wright persists in wearing such warm neckties. ALPHA TO OMEGA.

Teachers’ sal- aries are now much higher than five years ago, and every year they are increasing. The Fitchburg Normal School offers five courses— a general two years’ or elementary course, an ad- vanced course of four years, a kindergarten course, a special course of one year for experienced teachers, and a special course of one year for college graduates. Students are also admitted to special work in any de- partment of the school, such as drawing, music, manual training, and domestic science. The new manual arts school offers to young men a splendid opportunity to prepare to teach in the grammar grades or in the different lines of industrial work. Graduates of any course, who meet the requirements of excellence in personality, in scholarship, and in teaching ability, are in great demand. For catalogues and further information, address JOHN G.
