History is a drama enacted on the theatre of time, with sons for stars and eternity for a background. — Carlyle. T 1 1 h ' duty of the class historian is 1)otli a difficult and a pleasant one. Tt is difficult because she realizes her inabilit} to write a history in lanoaiage eloquent enoip h to do justice to the noble record and wonderful achievements of the class of 1911. It is pleasant because in reviewiu«- all of these illustrious deed.s, op])ortunity is t ' iven for writing about what is worthy of the rivalry of other classes. Ever since we entered the doors of the Fitchburg- High School as a class, we have stood ])rominently in intellectual, athletic and social spheres. Lbdike other freshmen we entered the much-dreaded school with stout, unwavering hearts. AVe surprised the faculty by our almost superhuman knowledge and immediately excited the envy of every other class. AA " e were determined to derive the greatest possible benefit from our four years’ course, and one glance at our noble foreheads will prove that our minds have been broadened to the fullest extent. During our Sophomore year brilliant success followed us, and not only were we praised by our beloved teachers, but also we were held up as examples for the entering class. In September, 1909, we held our first class elections at which we chose our motto, Carpe Diem. That we have lived up to our inspiring- motto is read ily perceiyed when we think of the many incredible feats which have been accomplished by us. During our Junior year we were such great rivals of the Seniors that in their vain efforts to eclipse us, nearly all the members of that class were suffering from nervous prostration before they received their diplomas. AAT have become distinguished by being the first in the school to have graduated a class from the Industrial Course which has become famous throughout the country. AAdien time in its ceaseless flight, aided by a just, though stern faculty, made us Seniors, we knew that we had reached that much longed-for goal. Now we look back upon our four years’ course with a feeling that we have done our best. Our past is resplendent; our present, glorious, and our future promising, for our ambition is lofty and, “exalted desire is the best guard and guarantee against defeat.” 10 PAUL GLENN KENT. ‘‘To every friendless name the friend.” President of the class. Paul has proven a very efficient class president for two years, and the best to he said is none too good for him. When it comes to bluffing he stands next to Taft. The girls all like Paul so well that we can’t say he devotes himself to any special one. KATE McKECHNIE LEIPER. “Whose worth Stood challenger on mount of all the ages, For her perfections.” Vice-president of the class. Kate is one of our live ones. She keeps the boys all guessing (making a specialty of Leominster ones). We believe that Kate is going to get married. When? No one knows — but some time. Read the locals. SADIE GILLESPIE. “JVhere there is honey, there will be B ' s. ” . B—Bob T — nd. Secretary of the class. Sadie is an efficient officer and a nice little girl. She can recite oratorical master- pieces and then some. We hope to see her in Welles- ley or Vassar next year, and in heaven when we die. RALPH ALBERT HOWARD. ‘‘There we see a cavalier Of dashing mien and countenance gay; A zvell-tried hero, sans all fear. The girls all love him — so they say.” Treasurer of the class. Ralph has a great big- list of girls whose hearts he is going to break. But just now he’s stalled dead. And it’s Doris! Ralph is noted for his good looks and his air. 11 CLARENCK NOAM AMIOTT. “A mighty Hercules was he.” “Noey” has been our tower of strength in athletics. He has held the positions of captain of both the foot- ball and basket-ball teams, and without him the base- ball team would be lost. He also participated in the track events. Every one likes Noah. HENRY FREDERICK BALLANTINE. “Ills enemies shall bite the dust. We are sorry for “Bally’s” enemies, and think per- haps it would be better for him if he ate fewer bananas. Henry officiated as captain of the track team. He’s a Latin shark, and the best Greek scholar in the school. P. S. He’s the only one taking Greek. MARGARET JULIA BARNICLE. ' 7 smell a rat.” Margaret is one of our quiet members, although she sometimes gets up courage to tell “strange tales ’ in Civics. She is one of the few girls in the class who are not afraid of rats. HELEN ELIZABETH BATTLES. “Those zvho paint her truest, praise her most.” Helen likes a good time, and never lets a lesson interfere with having it. She believes in showing class spirit. Item in the Sentinel — “Nichols Frost have sold out their entire line of silk hose to Miss Battles.” 12 CORINNE ELLEN A I EAUREGARD. “She is a zvoniaii and therefore to be zvooed.” Corinne is another of our diminutives. Neverthe- less she has stood hy us for four long years, having as good a time as she know ' s how. ALR.ERT LERG. “Man is a tzvo-Jeg(jed animal zuithont feathers.” “lUitts” is perhaps too fond of the girls. W ' e wonder how he got his nickname, for we never saw him indulge in the filthy weed. FArhaps Annie knows something about it. ETHEL FRANCES FLOOD. “A niighy hunter and her prey zvas tnan.” Ethel came to us in our Senior year, claiming Westhoro as her home town. Ever since her arrival she has had every hoy in the class for her obedient slave. Ethel takes the cake when it comes to making- eyes. FLORENCE BELLE BOUTWELL. “Quiet talk she liketh best.” Sometimes you hear Florence’s wee voice — -but sel- dom. Yet she got real excited once and whispered during the fourth hour. She is one of those Physics sharks; and we think she is a suffragette on the sly. la MILDKKI) M ANCIS ]’ RAZIER., “ I ! cv dii ' , lici ' ii(iiii c} ' , oil z ' lio see odiiiiee. Mildred is the longer half of the “Siamese 1 wins.” Although not matrimonially inclined as her Sin Twister,” she is due to make her debut at the prom. She is one of the would-be “Deutsch Sharks. Noted for her good nature. FRANKLIN NEWTON BRIGHAM. “Much study is a zeorrier of flesh. “Brig likes coffee, also tea; he likes girls, and girls like he.” He gets a discount on lunches — 10 per cent, off for large quantities— and can get more lessons from 8.05 to 8.13 than any pupil in high school. He intends to go to W. P. I. (Workhouse for Poor Inebriates.) BEATRICE AUGUSTA BROWN. ‘ ' Frailty, thy name is zjuoman.” Miss Brown doesn’t bother anyone but herself, but she bothers herself by not bothering others. She E extremely ladylike and well-behaved. Ask Albert if she isn’t. HAROLD BROWN. “My only books Were woman ' s looks, And folly ' s all they ' re taught me.” Harold is very quiet and unassuming— when he’s asleep Nevertheless he’s a great favorite with the girls, and that’s all we can say for him. 14 - ELIZAP ETH ELORENCE BUCK. " A daughter of the gods, divinely tall, And most divinely fair.” Elorence is one of our sky-scrapers. Her principal occupation is learning poems to please Miss Webber. JOHN JOSEPH BUCKLEY. “Behold the ehild of Nature’s law. Pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.” John has more rascality in that small body of his than any one else in the class. His ability to raise everything from Cain to the roof is well known to the teachers. After school he manicures hutter in a down-town store. NATALIE LOUISE BURDO. “To those who knozv thee not, no words can faint. And those zvho know thee well, all zvords are faint.’ Natalie is one of those who recognized the impor- tance of F. H. S., and so came to us in our Senior year. She is very quiet and unassuming. Yet who can tell? They say she corresponds through the matri- monial bureau. NESSIE CRUICKSHANK CALDOW. “Not much talk, a great sweet silence.” Nessie has spent four years in a vain attempt to make the teachers hear her voice. She is one of the shy girls — noted for her lack of voice. Be vigorous, Nessie, be vigorous! R. S. V. P. 15 MARTINA HOWE CHASE. “Though last, not least in love.” P,efore we say anyth n be it known to all by these presents that Martina, as a member of the class book committee, wanted to be let off easy. So we brought the auto to a dead stop and let her slide off the running board. MARY ELLSWORTH CHASE. “Of linked szveetness long drazvn out.’ Mary is one of our tallest. She would make a good librarian because she could reach the books on the top shelf without a step-ladder. Mary says she’ll get married when she finds some one her size. ANNIE HATFIELD COLEMAN. “Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more. Men are deceivers ever.” Annie has broken many hearts during her high school career. Annie and Mildred pose as the only original Siamese twins. CLARENCE THEODORE CORLEY. “Hes tough, ma ' am, tough as hell.” His attempts to live up to his quotation are attenaed with great success. He likes to ride on the cars. Bul he says he prefers a freight to an express because it waits less and you don’t have to stop the train to get off. IG CARL WALIX) MAYEN COWDREY. “I ' lie bookful blockhead, i(juora itly read; ll ith loads of learned liiinber in his head.” “I’)lu1)” has supplanted “Rutts” in Annie’s affec- tions of late. He is a lovable creature. He thinks he can possibly get through M. 1. T. Perhar)S so— “Acci- dents will,” etc. AGNES HANNAH CROWLEY. “A shining eye, a merry smile.” Agnes has behaved herself for four years, and despite this still enjoys life. Chief amusement — The Bijou. JULIA ANNA DACEY. “If you love me, grin.” Toot! Toot! here’s “Tot.” Our fun-loving Tot is a mischievous ray of sunshine — a universal favorite. Did you ever see her smile? It’s worth while. Tot is in great demand at all the class parties and makes a specialty of breaking hearts. ALICE ELIZABETH DALEY. “No voiee like thine to breathe the song.” Alice is one of those who charm us with their fair voices in the morning chapel exercises. We would recommend several years of voice culture. WILLIAM JOSEPH UALEV. ■ knci : by the smile that so (jracefully curled. That Bill zeas still liz iiig upon this green zvorld. " Bill stops short all balls shot to short-stop, hut he will stop short in his short-stopping after his short stop at school. LAURIE ERAAXES DOBB. “See hozx ' she leans her cheek upon her hand. O ! that I zi ' crc a glove upon that hand That I might touch that cheek.” Laurie is a very modest young lady who thinks the girls ought not to associate with the masculine variety. But we hope she will die with other companions than a parrot and a puss ' -cat. ROBERT FRAA’CIS DOXAHOE. “His hair so bristles zeith zx ' ith unmanly fears. As fields of corn that rise in bearded cars.” “Bob” has tried for every class position this year, and being finally selected chairman of the class-picture committee, he worked his head oft and then resigned. The girls like Robert because in spite of the fact that he sells shoes, he never remarks on the relative sizes of their pedal extremities. BERNADETTE IRENE DONLON. “But let me laugh awhile Tze mickle time to grieve.” Bernadette is a quiet one. But she can make eyes ! She sometimes bluft ' s — just for excitement. She is noted for her laugh. IS CORA RITA DONLON. ' ' Scnliiiicntally I am disposed to harmony, But orfjanically 1 am incapable of a tune. " Cora poses as the silver-tongued songstress of the class — “bright Eyes” heing her specialty. She is noted for heing the Biggest Bluff in the class, hut according to the latest accounts she has studied once in a while. MARY DOW. ' ' Frail, and gentle, and small. But zvell beloved by all. " Mary came to us from “Bonnie Scotland” in our Sophomore year, and we are very glad she came. She is one of the few studious people in the ' class. One of her chief charms is her quietness. HELEN RACHEL DUNN. " Grace zuas in all her steps And heaven in her eye. " Helen is one of the Latin Sharks of the class. She spends her time studying Latin in order to make a hit with Seppi. ROBERT EVANS. " Of stature short and sturdy frame.’’ One of our Harvard men. He comes from Shirley, but we don’t hold that against him. 19 CKClUAA b ' RANCKS I ' ARRKLL. “ .? modest as the violet that droops its head. " Although Cecelia is very quiet in class, she sure can chatter out of class. It is reported that she is a steady patron of the Ihjou. OSWALD FISCHER. ' What rage for fame attends the great and small. Better be d d than mentioned not at all. " “Ossie” is some football player, and one of the brightest fellows in the class. He’s one of Hunter’s poor mechanics, and only comes to school every other week so the teachers will be good to him. ROLAND VICTOR FITZROY. " Thoiirt small, hut strive still to he a man.” “Fitzy” has acquired the power of “gassing” a great deal — presumably through his employment in the Gas Electric Light office. He’s a West Fitchburg product; and can run well — for the lunch counter. GEORGE ELMER GARNO. “Oh! give me the szveet, shady side of Pall Mall. ' ’ George is so modest that we had difficulty in ob- taining his picture for publication. He goes to Whalom “for the ride” quite frequently, and was never known to study. 20 SOPHIA ACxNES GELTNAS. “As chaste as unsunned snow.” Sophie comes to school every morning at 8.10, and goes home every noon at 1.10. She also recites her lessons sometimes, Civics being her favorite. She has an uncle on the police force, so the hoys don’t bother her much. HERBERT GEORGE. “And through his body ' s under hatches, his soul has gone aloft.” Herbert has managed to keep in school and not get kicked out as many of his classmates have done. As manager of the football team he can’t he beaten. He’s another of Billy Hunter’s “poor mechanics.” VINCENT HUBBARD GODFREY. “His angle-rod made of sturdy oak, His line a cable that stones ne’er broke ; His hook he baited with a dragon s tail. And sat upon a rock and bobbed for whale.” Godfrey is class fisherman, and excels in the fish story line. He left for New York in the middle of the year to see the white lights, etc. (opera glasses, you know), on the excuse of attending a prep school. He’s going to be a jolly Jack Tar. ARTHUR CHARLES GOUGH. “Studious to please yet not ashamed to fail.” Arthur is another Industrial fellow — and he’s an all-round good fellow. He’s a good-natured chap who takes everything that comes his way with seeming in- difference. 21 LINUS EWKN GREENE. " lie either (lyes, or lilsie (else he) paiiifs.” Linus made s(3me hit in the M. C. A. minstrel sliow. He is rather bashful, hut he’s good looking in spite of his freckles. Linus’ motto is “One girl at a time.” THOMAS LINCOLN HARROCKS. “Rejoice, O yotiiig man, in thy youth! " Tommy is the baby of our class. Cheer up, Tommy, the best things always come in small packages. When he is President, he may l)e able to live down the reputation of coming from Westminster. GERTRUDE MARY HEFFERNAN. “A tiny sprite, and yet a merry one. " Gertrude is another of the class babies. She spends much of her time in learning poems for elocution, and in fooling with her neighbors in 26 . ROBERT HENRY JOHNSON HOLDEN. “My life is one damned, horrid grind.” We are afraid there is no hope for our Shirley member. He cuts up so that once he had to be locked in the closet in 26 . WALTER RAYMOND HOLTON. " Seemed zvashiiig his hands with invisible soap. And inipereeptible water.’ ' Ray is now l)usy trying to decide whether he will join the Chicago Nationals or the St. Louis Americans after he finishes his high school career. When he has made his choice, we will tell yon which team will get the world’s championship. MILDRED CLEMENT HOWE. “Her eyes ' dark eharni ' tzverc z ' ain to tell. ' ' Mildred has established a record for constancy. As soon as she finishes this course, she expects to take up “Domestic Science for Two.” Ray is waiting im- patiently for her. Rless you, my children ! CLYDE TUTTLE HUBBARD. " He thought as a sage, though he felt as a man.” Although Clyde is mainly a man of learning, he can always be found in the front row at the Bijou. His chief amusement — we regret to say — is fussing the girls. ELIZABETH ISABELLA HUTCHEON. “And still her learning zvith her days increased.” Bessie is one of the most studious members of the class, and would think it a crime to come to school with her lessons unprepared. She is noted for her good marks. 23 liEkTHA ANNA HUTCHINS. “TlioiifjJitlcss of beauty, she zvas beauty s self. Bertha looks quiet — but sometimes looks deceive, and Bertha isn’t as (iiiiet as she looks. Her chief amusement seems to he vhisi)ering loud enoui h to at- tract Mr. Davis’s attention. ELIZABETH THEODORA JOHNSON. “And I oft haze heard defended, ‘Littlest said is soonest mended.’” Elizabeth is one of the most silent girls in the class, in fact she hardly ever opens her mouth— even to recite. JOHN JOSEPH KEATING. “Often the cock-loft is empty in those zvhom Nature has built many stories high.” John and Mary Ellsworth ought to hit it off — they’d be a good-looking pair on account of their height. John did a little pitching on the baseball team, although he would rather pitch in the sunny side. GEORGE JONES KELLEY. “An honest man, close buttoned to chin, Broadcloth zvithont, and a zi’arm heart zrAthin. " George is one of the first Industrial class to grad- uate from our high school. He started to play foot- ball, and was a crackerjack until he tried to wrestle with Billy Hunter and got put down. 24 - CLARENCE EARLE LORD. “A [yerfcct thing needs no praise.” Clarence has been very quiet during his H. S. career. He spends most of his time trying to keep out of Jimmie Mac’s way, and is noted for his attention to the Ereshman girls. PERCIVAL EUGENE LOWE. ' dVJiat is this so tall and bright f It is our class ' s shining light.” Percy is one of our farmer hoys. He’s going to raise “Taters” after the completion of his school work. He studies faithfully and knows how to behave in class. It is impossible to enumerate his beauties in this short space. ALFRED JOSEPH MALLOY. “Like two single gentlemen rolled in one.” If you want a good cigar ask Alfred for advice. Not that he smokes, but he has had experience in the cigar line as clerk in Teehan’s. MARY ELIZABETH MANEY. “Sober, steadfast, and demure.” Mary has always behaved herself as becomes a lady. She also knows how to study — if she wants to. She spends her recesses getting other people’s stenog- raphy notes. 25 HELEN MARGARET MANH A ' . “Ili(jh flights she had. and zvit at zuiil. And so her tongue lay seldom still.” Ves, Helen certainly is a talker. She Inis Mary Cushing Smith " skun a mile. " Helen is the middle one of the trio — Helen Merriam, Helen Maney, and Helen Dunn. HELEN CORA MARSHALL. " She doeth little kuidnesses Jl h eh most leave undone, or despise.” Helen is fat and good natured. She believes that " woman should be happy” — and so she’s happy. MARGARET ELIZABETH McGRATH. “Her auburn locks zvould set the poets raving.” Margaret is very much interested in Air (Ayer) planes just at present, and there are great prospects of her having one of her own some day. CHARLES EDWARD McCARTHY. “Give the devil his due.” Charlie is an innocent-looking youth, but then you know looks are deceiving. He is one of Miss Murray’s star German pupils. Charlie is always trying to do anything to make the girls laugh. 26 i MARY ELIZABETH McDONOUGH. “She has wit, and fun. and fire.” But you never would think it by her looks. She is Kitty’s inseparable companion, and one of the lead- ing members of the “Girls’ Giggle Club,” meeting fifth hours in 26 , i JEANNETTE McGEE. “Thy modesty is a candle to thy merit. " Netty is a sweet demure little thing, “pursuing the even tenor of her ways.” Noted for her never-failing good nature and sunny smile. SADIE KATHERINE McNAMARA. “This girl zvill out-talk us all. " Especially in stenography class. We believe that she is a stanch upholder of women’s rights, and so chews gum. She’s a first-class substitute for a phono- graph. HELEN IRENE MERRIAM. “I know her by her mildness rare. " Helen hails from Westminster, but we’ll forgive her for that. She is one of our bright students who would never think of misbehaving in class. 2 7 W ’MAN RICHARDSON MILLER. “Never do today zvhat may be put off aivhile ; A sayui( ivhich is auszuered by his sleepy yazvn and smiled ' “Shinny’s” peculiar liahit of stepi)ing on matches is exceedingly annoying to Mr. Davis. He is known far and wide as the most wide-awake (?) fellow in the class. Chief amusement — afternoon sessions. JOHN FRANCIS MORTARTY. “lllio to a zjuoman trusts his peace of mind, Trusts a frail bark to a tempestuous zvindd ' This is John’s motto, and he lives up to it by never speaking to a girl if he can help it. Poor John ! He works off superfluous energy in playing football. JOHN JOSEPH MULLANEY. prodigy of learning.’ ' John has been connected with football and track, besides being a member in good repute of the de- bating club. We expect John to be a great lawyer some day. RACHEL BERNARDTNE MURPHY. “There zvas a soft and pensive grace, A cast of thought, on her szveet face.” Once Rachel went to Leominster, and when she came back we found she’d left her heart behind her. Her sunny smile goes straight to the hearts of all who see it. 28 ZULEME PERKINS NEWELL. “And her dark locks lend to her face A youthful and luxuriant (jrace.” We call her “Trixie” — it’s so much easier. Her smile and dimples have made her a general favorite, but she can’t make us believe she likes to study. MARTHA JOSEPHINE OXFORD. “Knowledge enormous makes a god of me.” Martha astonishes us every two months with her good marks. At French she can’t be beat. BLANCHE PALMER. “A prim little maid was she.” Blanche is our literary member — serving as chair- man of that department of the Ked atid Gray. Miss Greene says she can find the moral in every story — even when there is none. ALICE FILACENA PERKINS. “Sixteen and in love! what more has earth to offer t” Alice tells us that she is going to stay at home next, and learn to keep house. A. P. is on the waiting- list — don’t keep him waiting much longer, Alice. 29 CLARE ELLEN PERSONS. “Happy am I, from care I ' m free. " Clare doesn’t like to have the teachers dictate to lier — she is apt to stamj) her foot if they do. lUit Clare’s l)ark is worse than her bite. She doesn’t be- lieve in wasting time by worrying. CARLTON SHAW PHILLIPS. “A man to all his classmates dear. " Biff! Bang! Honk! Carlton is right with us when it comes to noise — and singing. He believes in calling — about eight times a week. He shines in everything from football to love-making. We can vouch for the former, and Grace can vouch for the latter. The most noticeable thing about " Phat” is his Grace. CORNELIA POWELL. “Her deep blue eyes smile constantly. ' ’ “Conny” came to us from Worcester, and is indis- pensable in the Glee Club. She is noted for the number of times she has just missed being late to school. GEORGE HERBERT PRIEST, JR. “I chatter, chatter as I go.’’ Junior is a leader in many of the class meetings, and is noted for his ability to bluff the teachers. W ' e wonder where he learned his German. He is noted for the way he sticks to Kate in German class, and for his oratorical ability. 80 ANNA ELIZABETH REILLY. “IVc loTc thee still.” That is, we think we would if she ever gave us a chance to lind out what she would he still. Phew ! stop to get your breath, Annie ! We suspect she is very fond of the fellows. Are you, Anna? EREDERICK GARNETT RICE. “And ifelien a lady ' s in the case. Von knozv all other thitigs give place.” “Ereddie” has oceans of trouble with his love affairs, going from one extreme to the other, — from short, dumpy ones, to tall stringers. He isn’t engaged, but we haven’t given up hopes. He composed our class song — the best ever. OSCAR EUGENE RICE. “IVlio speaks in szveet and lisping voice.” Oscar spends a great deal of time trying to enter- tain the girls with feeble jokes. He has an unaccount- able fondness for Civics. STEPHEN WILLIAM ROBINSON. ‘‘He would on either side dispute, Confute, change hands, and still confute.” Stephen sure can debate. In spite of the fact that he never uses words of less than four syllables, it took him four years to learn that Virgil didn’t write the ‘‘Ode to a Skylark.” 31 AP.RAIIAM ISADORA ROME. “The force of his ozeii merit makes h ' s zeay. " ] Al)raham holds down a seat in 26. . s yet he has ] not shown much interest in the fair sex, althougli from j his present actions we have hope. In the future wc -■ expect to see him proprietor of I ' itchl)urg ' s biggest. j Ijest, and busiest clothing store. LELAND FRANCIS ROSS. “Life is but an emfty bubble.” Only Lee’s “bubble” isn’t always empty. Lee is with us in body but his spirit is roaming about in South Lancaster. He is the record-breaker for long- distance love affairs. LILLIAN ROSE ROY. “Sfeak of me as 1 am, nothing extenuate, nor set dozen aught in malice.” Rose tries to keep things lively in 28. She is one of t hose who feel it their duty to spend at least half of every hour in whispering. EARLE UNDERWOOD RUGG. “Full zvell they laughed zinth counterfeited glee. At all his jokes, for many a joke had he.” Earle can tell stories with any one in the c’ass. He is a hustling member of the celebrated D. A. (Dopey Athletes), which is recognized as the leading club of America. 32 ,i- - HELEN MARION BILLINGS RUSSELL. “Thought is deeper than all speech.” Helen left us during her Junior year, but she liked us so well that she came hack to us this year. She has faithfully devoted herself to her studies for four years. GRACE VERONICA RYAN. “A little loiver than the angels.” We are glad to say that Grace has stopped growing. We had fears of losing sight of her altogether. MADELINE ALICE RYAN. “The fair, the chaste, the unexpressive she.” Madeline expects to be a private stenographer some day. At present she is trying to take down the lectures in assembly hall. CLYDE ARTHUR SANDERSON. “Mechanic slaves, IVith greasy aprons, rules, and hammers.” Clyde is one of our Industrial boys. Despite this fact he is quite an orator, counting among his en- gagements an appearance before the Merchants’ Asso- ciation. According to him, Cowdrey’s is the acme of machine-shop perfection.. 33 EDWIN C. SMITH. " That man that hath a tonyue is no man, If zoith that tongue he cannot zvin a zvoman. " “Ed” seems to be a man, for with his tongue he has already won a woman. Congratulations ! EILEEN SMITH. " Her eyes as stars of tzvilicjht fair, Like tzi ' ilight ' s, too. her dusky hair.” Eileen is one of the popular girls. She doesn’t believe in studying hard enough to grow thin. Laugh- ing is her strong point. INEZ MADELINE SMITH. “Is she not passing fair?” It is reported that Inez likes the Leominster boys better than those in Fitchburg. Boom Fitchburg, Inez ! In the future we shall hope for better spirit. ( ALICE LOUISE STEVENS. “Sure thou often in thy toil Hast consumed the midnight oil.” Louise joined us Junior year. She always has her lessons and has the reputation of studying more than any one else in the class. But Louise is a deep one — • and we suspect her of leading a double life ! 34 KOiJERT MEWIN S STILES. “ Hxcccdingly well read (red).” I’ob’s specialty is the liurdle race, lie always wins when his oponents fall down. Also famous for his sight translations. GEORGE CLINTON STURTEVANT. “Ife is the greatest artist there, JVhether of pencil or of pen.” George is one of onr artists. He spends the greater part of his time in drawing pictures; he spends the rest in vain endeavors to impress his ideas upon Mary Cushing. REN JAM IN ERANCIS TAET.

' ‘Her voice is glad as the April bird ' s.” Lillian is one of our sweet singers. And she is also one of our greatest chatterers. She is planning to be a stenographer — at least until something better turns up ! 35 KATllKVN (iKkTRUDK THOMAS. " And black were her eyes As the berry that grazes by the zeayside.

CLARENCE BOYNTON TILTON. “By Jupiter! an angel! or if not, an earthly paragon. ' ’ Clarence is rather shy when it comes to the fairer sex, but “time will tell.” His benevolent spirit has helped us out of many a tight place. When it comes to debating, Tilly is right there with the goods. HARRY THOMAS VALKER. “Caesar ' s dead and buried, and so is Cicero, " But Harry is still with us. Harry divides his time between teaching Mr. Chal- mers chemistry and cracking jokes for the edification of the first hour English class. Even so he finds time to rush the growler in 26 occasionally, and sometimes to study. GRACE EMMELINE WHITNEY. “Let me have men about me that are Fat. ' ’ We acquired Grace in our Junior year. On her arrival she immediately became in“fat”uated, and has kept up her fidelity ever since. Studying doesn’t seem to trouble Grace, but she certainly can drive a horse. She is the originator of the “Football Dance,” and several other unique schemes. I I 36 SARAH MAY WHITNEY. “Sighed and looked unutterable things. " Sarah is one of our arden t Inologists. Almost any time you may see her gazing out the window at the l)irds. Sarah doesn’t seem to care very much for the hoys. Next year we’ll hear of her achievements at the Normal School. PAUL JOSEPH WOODCOME. “He might be silent, and not cast azvay His sentences in vain. " Paul comes from West Fitchburg, but ’ll has over- looked worse faults than that. At present his matri- monial outlook is rather dubious, hut W. F. is noted for its girls. CHARLES E. WOODS. “A Persian’s heaven is easily made — ’Tis but black eyes and lemonade. " Charley is clearing out a fortune in Simonds’ machine shop. But he can show us a few points in basket-ball just the same. ANNIE WOOLLACOTT. “Of manners gentle, of affections mild.” Annie is one of those demure, shy little things that everyone likes. She is one of Mr. Davis’s favorites — because she always has her Latin. But she isn’t studious to a fault. 87 I 1 (iRACE IRENE WRAY. I ‘ ' Is she not more than h iinting ca)i expressf” | Grace adds weif lit to every argument she enters.

IN MEMORIAM. ICilltan ?Elst0 BORN OCTOBER 27, 1891. DIED DECEMBER 4, 1910. WHEREAS, God in his infinite wisdom has seen fit to take from us one whom we came to love and cherish as a companion and sister, and WHEREAS, this being the first break in our ranks, we are highly sensitive of the loss which we have sustained in the death of one whose example and influence were respected as that of a young woman of highest character, ability and promise ; be it RESOLVED, that the class of 1911, individually and as a class, hereby expresses its grief in the untimely death of Lillian Elsie Bugbee. “Above the starry threshold of Jove’s court, my mansion is, Where those immortal shapes of bright aerial spirits live insphered.” 39 CLASS SONG.

T he hi h school of this city has never had a class which has made as much history or drawn as much attention as the class of 1911. It has the unique distinction of inang ' nrating- a new idea of education, this being the cooperative industrial course, which has not only helped to win honors in the educational hut also in the indus- trial world. The plan is a combination of working in the hives of industry of our city and of attaining intellectual growth by attending the high school during alternate weeks. The ince])tion of this course was due To the cooperation of the manufacturers (E the city with the school, to the end that when boys have com])leted the course instead of its being ' a commencement of work it is merely a continuation. The industrial course has drawn attention from all over the world and visitors have l)een very numerous, coming from all over the United States, Canada, and England, among these being: Elmer S. Brown, United States Commissioner of Education ; Mr. John Seath, Superintendent of Education for Ontario ; manufacturers, siq erin- tendents, and boards of education froni various iparts of the United States. Newspapers, periodicals, and publications of all kinds have had articles discussing ' the ‘ Fitchburg Plan” of industrial education in their columns, this being due in a great measure to the fact that this city is absolutely the first to adopt such a plan in connection with the public schools. The achievements of the members of the course have added con- siderable to the annals of our class. Ralph A. Howard, the treasurer of the class, is a member of the industrial course, as is John F. Malley, the designer and illustrator for the class book. In athletics we have also been very prominent, being the mainstay of the football and basket-ball teams for the past three years and also well represented on the baseball and track teams. Noah Amiott was captain of the football teams of 1909 and 1910, and captain of the basketball team for the season of 1910 and 1911. 51 r Ye started to work in the hot summer of IdOcS. when the rest of our fellow i)ni)ils were enjoyiii!:! a pleasant vacation, perhaps at the seashore. Mr. W ' illiam Ik Hunter, a thorou. hly practical man, who had served his time as an ai)prentice in the sho])s and worked six years as a draftsman in such ])lants as the L nited Shoe Machinery Co., The Electric Vehicle Co., Ceneral Electric Co., and Eratt Wdiitnev, and had taken special mechanical studies in the iMassachu- setts Institute of Technology, Avas secured as director, and made preliminary arrangements for starting work in the various shops of the city. At the opening of school in September we paired olt and took alternate w’eeks in shops and school. We organized a society in 1908 called “The Industrial Society,” which held meetings during that year and part of 190h. We held a dance during the latter year. Our activities along lines pertaining to our work have been ex- ceptional. ] Iany trips have been made to manufacturing establish- ments of this and other cities. Among the out-of-town places visited are Norton Grinder Co. of Worcester, General Electric Co. of Lynn, and Ebiited Shoe :Machinery Co. of Beverly. We have also held exhibits of our work every year which have been followed by enter- tainments. Practical men are always hard to obtain as instr ,ictors and the school committee was most fortunate in securing Mr. Roy W. Lord in 1909, he being a graduate of Harvard College and having two vears’ experience as a chemist in the Carter Vdiite Lead Works of Chicago. T Iiss Alice W. Brown was given the English department and she has handled this very difficult and new problem in a most efficient manner. The manufacturers in wdiose shops we Avork gave us a supper in Lincoln Plall annex in June, 1910, for the purpose of getting better acquainted and of promoting the best of feeling. We were the guests of the Eitchburg Board of Trade and Merchants’ Association at their regular monthly meeting November 2, 1910. At this gathering some ten or twelve of us read papers as to our opinion of the indus- trial course. IMr. Hunter gave a supper and entertainment in Decem- ber, 1910, the supper being served in the library and the entertainment, which was by Pitt Parker, the vell-known cartoonist, was given in 52 the Asseml)ly Hall and was enjoyed very innch by members of the course and also the public. There are twenty members of the industrial course in the Class of 1911, and we are employed in the following- j lants ; Simonds Mfg. Co., bath Grinder Co., Putnam Machine Co., hdtchburg- Steam Kni -ine Co., blake Pump and Condenser Co., C. H. Cowdrey Machine Works, and Fitchburg- Machine Co., following the trades of drafting, pattern- making, and machinists. As a fitting climax to our three years’ work the manufacturers and leading citizens of the city tendered a complimentary banquet to Professor Herman Schneider, the originator of the cooperative idea, and the Senior industrial students, at the Wh.alom Inn, Tuesday evening, June 27, at which speakers of national renown were |)resent and delivered addresses. 53 FRESHMAN PICTURES OF OUR PRESIDENT AND VICE-PRESIDENT.

Amiott A was as usual the star, but Miller, Beer, Poland and Phillips were all close followers. After being defeated by the alumni— all star college men the team won nine straight games and were in line for the championship of the state, easily defeating Melrose. But Amiott, Phillips, Miller and Poland were forced to leave the game on account of injuries or standing in their studies, which de- stioyed Fitchburg s hopes. Nevertheless, we easily won the cham- pionship of the Wachusett League, and scored 417 points to our opponents 257. SUMMARY. Amiott, F. H. S. NENTS.

Chalmers of the faculty for coach. Chalmers coached the various athletic teams at Keene Tdigh School, and his efforts in the local team were greatly responsible for the success. The team won six of the eleven games played, and no doubt would have won many more, hut for being de])rived of good men on account of deficiency in studies. THE SUMMARY. April 19 At Fitchburg, F. H.

Leominster had an excellent team, having rejected baseball to devote their undivided time to track events. Leominster outclassed our team by but nine points, and this was a good showing in consideration of the fact that the local men had to devote their time to baseball and also track practice. Nevertheless Coach Harvey T. Watson produced an excel- lent team, having much more material and more practice.

A S I made haste up the street to catch the first airship for Paris — (This in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty) — 1 caught the sounds of hilarity, revelry, music, and shouting, Coming from our greatest hotel — the finest, I trow% in the country — Managed by one of my classmates, Mark Wyman — so called the " Wymonya,” All in a moment I stopped, and attracted hy boisterous shouting, Curious now of its meaning, I entered the building and opened Wide the great marl)le doors of the dining hall noble and spacious. There I stopped short in amazement, for there before me were seated All of my worthy classmates, the members of 1911 — Eating and drinking together, and all talking now at the same time. E’en as I stood there in wonder, our president noble had risen. Welcomed me they with a handshake, and answered at once as I asked him. “Yes, I attempted to reach you, but heard you had gone back to Paris. Of course you authors are busy, and always just going to Paris.” Seated I was in a trice, and made merry and laughed with the others. Suddenly there was a silence. Our president rose and said shortly, “Let us each ted what we’ve done since those days in our high school together. What we’ve accomplished in life” — and with that he sat down and waited. Sadie Gillespie spoke first, her face all rosy with blushes; “I am a mathematician, and have just succeeded in teaching Robert that one plus one makes — just one, and he’ll never forget it.” “I,” said Kate Leiper, “am now a writer of eminent merit. 1 give advice to the lovelorn inissues of th’ Boston American. Heart talks on love and affection; a second Mildred Champagne— 1.” Then rose our president Kent; “And I am a worthy magnate. King of the tobacco trust am I, and Taft is my steward.” “Yes,” replied Taft, “and our place is at the shade end of-er-Pall Mall.” Now Ralph Howard is speaking — a man though fat, yet still handsome. “T am a man of leisure, and still in search for some ‘swell doll.’ ” “Bah ! you are lazy,” says Noah Amiott. “Now just look at me for example. I am a prize fighter, you bet. I’ve got Johnson beat to a frazzle.” There was a moment of silence, then Carl Waldo Cowdrey reported, “My occupation is cribbing — and cribbing the books for Deutsch Scholars.” Then Harold Brown said and shortly, “I run a machine.” “And I also,” sweetly replied Nessie Caldow ; “A great big fat red one with green lights.” “I’m a professional coach for Harvard,” returned William Daly. “And I,” said Miss Margaret Barnacle,— “I have just tamed my immense rat.” Silence! our friend Ethel Blood has the floor — she’s as pretty as ever— “I run a soda fountain and my country Apollo together.” 88 Oh, yes, I still raise the deuce,” says Miss Dacey, her bright eyes a-twinkling, And keep the fellows a-guessing ; because they have something to guess at.” Next Oswald Fischer responded— “For me— I own a big comb-shop.” “I,” said Joe Keating, “have learned the reason I cannot grow shorter.” Up rose our friend Herbert George, who said. “A shoe-store for ladies Now do I own, and run, and I earnestly wish you for patrons.” Ihen Deacon Kelly got up, with hands clasped in devout supplication. “ 1 am a staff of the church, a pillar in fervent religion; The right-hand friend of our minister, Percival Eugene Lowe.” Percival rose with a smile, acknolwedging thus his vocation. “And I have written twelve sermons on ‘How to be good,’ ” he concluded. Now from a distant corner a wee little voice is heard talking. Yes ! it is Florence Boutwell — “A teacher am I, and a good one.” “And so am I,” said Miss Buck. “And I, " said Miss Croyley a-laughing. Then two more teachers got up— Miss Dow of Geom. and Miss Russell. Now John Mullaney arises. “Pm chief of police of the city. And A1 Malloy is my sergeant-at-arms and we keep them all guessing.” Then up spoke our friend Leland Ross. “Yes, he pinched me once for overspeeding. When I was riding with Ethel. I run a big taxi. Some chauffeur ! And when” — But Earl Rugg interrupted, “Fm principal now of the high school.” “And I,” said John Buckley a-grinning, “am of all the schools superintendent.” Then rose the suffragettes, and sung us a paean of voting. They were Miss Earrell, Miss Murphy, Miss Roy, and Miss MacNamara, Miss Ryan, Miss Reilly, Miss Persons, Miss Powell, and Miss Sarah Wdiitney. “And I,” yelled Miss Dunn, “am the leader, and we demand rights ' et stiff ragium.’ ” Silence there was for a time. Then finally Miss Cora Donlon Rose in her chair, and said, “To the most holy order of Priesthood Do I belong, — and I live in a cloister, with two hundred maidens.” “How horrible,” murmured Miss Perkins, “and not the least bit like my dear lot. I am the wife of my choice, who’s a millionaire in addition.” “A teacher am I,” says our friend Annie Coleman, “of music and dancing. I teach the Ashby trot, and it’s a one fast dance, I assure you.” Softly arose Mildred Howe. “Eve written a book of love-sonnets. Quaint lyric poems of woods, of great rivers, of meadows, and little fields.” “I too have written a book, on ‘Latin and what it has taught me,’ ” Says Martha Josephine Oxford, and sadly sighs at the “mem’ry.”. Bernadette Donlon arose, and smiling said, “I spend all my time Reading the last best sellers.” Said Helen Margaret Maney, “I am a blushing bride, and this is my fourth man this year.” Annie Woolacott slowly replied, as we asked her her mission, “T am a chapeaux-model at Paquin’s, for forty-five bones per.” Hush! It is Emma Yelle, more glorious now than before. “I am” — “A beauty,” we cried and drank down a toast to her beauty. And there were more toasts given. Then silence — as Ballantine rose up. “I am the mayor of No-Town.” “There’s some class to you,” we all shouted. 89 “And T am the president of the ha} ' Club,” said hranklin N. Brigham. “I have discovered the South Pole,” responds our discoverer, A. Berg. " An actress am I,” said Miss Battles, “and now I am starring on Broadway. My play is the ‘Sweetness of Purple.’” “I wrote it,” said Miss Mildred Brazier. “Now perhaps,” said Corinne Beauregard, I am not quite so famous, yet I am Inventor of a tooth-powder.” “And it’s named after me,” said Miss Burdo. Up spoke Beatrice A. Brown. “I teach how to do up red hair.” " And I have learned how to keep thin,” said Miss Mary Chase very sweatly. " Pve written a text book on Trig,” said Martha, " and how to make candy.” Laurie F. Dobb then responded, “1 am a dressmaker and artiste.” A loud voice is heard; it is Corley. “I am an example of bluffing.” " And I,” said Bob Donahoe, too. But silence! let’s offer a prayer! Fighting Bob Evans looms up. " Commodore 1— and a good one.” Yes, we believe you, Robert! Now Fitzroy stands up on the table So we can see him. “And I am learning how to grow taller.” “I am a drummer,” said Garno. “And I, said Sophie Gelinas, “Am a happy old maid.” “So am I,” said Gertrude M. Heffernan. Vincent H. Godfrey stood next. “A captain am I of the flagship. And Arthur Gough is my under-lieutenant.” Gough nodded approval. “Don’t forget me,” said Miss Alice Daly — “I am a trained nurse I.” And Greene said, “I am a farmer,” While Holton said, “Pm a soapmaker. And wash my hands twice a week, so you see they are clean now entirely. ” " Pm in love,” said Miss Margaret McGrath. And Robert H. Holden responded, " I am commander-in-chief of the Army— the Salvation Army.” " I,” little C. Lord added, “Fm m.anager now of the IVar Cry.” Silence there was. Then the girls of the cooking club rose up. Misses Hutcheon, Hutchins, and Johnson, May Maney, McDonough, and Marshall And last Miss McGee, but not least Helen Merriam, lately of Westminster. Next those who belonged to the club of ‘get-by-on-your-own-face’ spoke : John Malley, MacCracken and Robinson, Sanderson, E. Smith. Then spoke up Hubbard, “the Wild Man of Borneo am I, in Ringling’s.” “And I am a clown in that circus,” responded Charles Edward McCarty. “I am a bluffer,” said Miller, “and the great ’cello player of Paris.” What’s that? Oh, it’s John Moriarty. “I am an athelete— 1 have won five diffierent cups in the last three years of my living.” Up rose our great prima donna, Blanche Palmer, who warbled a few notes. Let out a few war-whoops in G-sharp, and sat down serenely. Trixie Newell then said, “I am the new cashier at Woolworth’s.” Choo ! Choo ! It’s Carlton and Grace. They stand up and warble together, “We were just married in Boston. This is our honeymoon journey. Now Junie Priest has the floor. “I control the Sentinel proper. xVnd my literature staff is composed of Tilton and Woodcome. Oscar Rice next speaks. “I’m a ballad singer of high note. “I am another,” said Woods — “and I am another, said W alker. “1 am a clothier,” Rome said, " and run a great business with home trade.” 90 Madeline Ryan, Inez Smith, Miss Stevens, Miss Taylor and Thomas Then rose up softly and said, “We are happy, and so are our husbands.” We drank a toast to them and waited for Eileen to get up. But she remained in her chair and said, “I am a social reformer.” “Mostly social,” I said, and waited for Bob Stiles to get up. “I have just written — just finished — a wonderful dictionary.” “I am an artist,” said Sturtevant softly, “an artist of merit.” ‘‘I’m a composer of rag-time,” responded Miss Wray — “O you rag-time!” Then Mark Wyman, our host, arose and filled up our glasses. “But,” I inquired in alarm, “where is Tommy? Where IS Tommy Harrocks?” We got out our magnified glasses, and hunted for Thomas in vain there. Then Kent laughingly said, “Tom’s at home pulling weeds in the garden;” And we all laughed with him, and drank a great toast to our Tommy! Then we stood up and sang our class song — our school song, together. And the class banquet has ended. 91 nr. I)a.v ' s, GRINDS. NOTICE.

MASSACHUSETTS T he Fitchburg State Normal School opened in 1895 with four teachers and 46 pupils, in a rented building. For the year ending in June, 1911, there are 30 teachers, 260 normal students and 700 children, with buildings and equipment worth nearly half a million dollars. Besides the regular school work, during the past year over 60 lectures, concerts, entertainments, pageants, etc., have been open to the students, almost all without any charge. The school offers two courses to young men a course to ht tor grammar masters and a practical arts course to teachers for manual training and various forms of industrial work. There are four courses open to young women, besides the one year’s course for teachers and th e special music course. At present the school is the second largest Normal School in the State. The entering class m the fall promises to be larger than ever. Teachers were never in greater demand or salaries better The new departure in school work has created a need for men that at present cannot be met. For catalogues and circulars, address JOHN G.
