The labor, though difficult, has not been without its reward ot interest to us, and at least we have fulhlled the words ot Byron : Tis pleasure sure, to see one ' s name lu print; A liook’s a book, although there nothing in t.

George must leave all his humor at home. He is capable of playing a good game of baseball. Noted for his good behavior. GRACE BEATRICE BOLAND. Amongst the latest in her place.

How doth the busj’ little bee Improve each shining hour. Nellie is an unassuming miss, particularly adapted by nature for minding her own business. This is in itself a remarkable feature. However, she tries to bluff in Civics once in a while. Noted for being a “cute little thing.” GUY HAGAR DELANEY. Like two men rolled into one. We might say that Guy is fair, fat and forty but for the age limit. Guy has learned how to tune a violin, and stars in the orchestra.

So therefore let’s be merry. Ray’s as skittish as he looks and that is some skittish. Thinks he is a human buzz-wagon, although he can’t convince us (that is one of us) of that. Likes to take little joy rides rain or shine in any kind of weather, but only when his father is not looking. Noted for his horn (always blowing). 23 RL’TH KLRAXOR GARDNER.

Shines in our spelling tests. Noted for her elongation. EDITH NINA KELLEY. Noveltv has charms that our minds can hardly stand.

She is responsible for our fine Class Song. Noted for her chorus work. MAY BELL KINDRED. A prim little maid is she. We couldn’t tell anything about May if vee tried, so we won’t try.

She is rather quiet at home, hut from what we hear and kno ' of her summer vacations we take it that she is not so quiet after all. Noted for her aliility for studying. ELIZABETH CECELIA LEAHY. And never blush was on my face. We believe that this quotation hts Elizabeth very well, or at any rate her manner in old E. H. S. indicates. She looks as if she might study hard.

MARTIN JOSEPH MANNIX. Mneh study is a worrier of flesh. " Mart " is aliout the busiest man ever, hut has a peculiar hatred for any kind of study. Is president of the Athletic Association and the Debating Club, manager of the Baseball Team, and was business man- ager of the Red and Gray. Was a tower of strength r.n the footltall team. With all these honors " Mart’’ is looking for more. Newman Club. Noted for his versatility. MILTON ALEXANDER MATTHEWS. All great men are dying And I am feeling ill. " Matty” is a professed woman-hater, according to himself. Played football long enough to make his letter, but never exerted himself much. He has one trouble, a severe case of " swell-headitis,’ and is doing nothing to reduce the swelling. Well, " Matty’ did win the prize speaking contest. Noted for " that temporary limp.” HILJA MARIA MATTSON. Of gentle soul to human race a friend. Hilja is another quiet one and would rather study than eat. By the looks of her report card it certainly pays her. Noted for her dandy drawings. 30 RUTH MARIE McRRlDE. I know her by lier iniklness rare. Ruth will never get herself into trouble Ijeeause of her talks, which have been few and far between, h ' orgets herself and recites in German once in a while. Noted for her diffidence. J SAP, ELLA McLAGAN McCALLUM. A simple maid was she. Isabella’s one ambition is to preach the gospel to the cannibals and we kind of think that she’ll fill the hill. Spends nine hours in study every day. .Noted for her grammar. MARY ELIZABPYIH McCARTHY. With mirth and laujjhter let old age come. Only for Mary the lunch counter would go broke. Still she doesn’t look it. Is an authority on constitu- tional law. Noted for her height. KATPIRYN ELIZABETH McGRATH. My beauty, though not mean. Needs not the painted flourish of your praise. Kathryn is one of the dashing kind and likes to break hearts, Init so far hasn’t progressed very much. Aspires to be the class beauty. Noted for her style. 31 MAKV ALICK McCiRATM. Just, a little jjjirl not bi j jer than a doll. Mary is one of our little mites but is not afraid of it. She has a tiny little voice, which she keeps to herself, so we don’t have any “wise saws” drop from her lips. Noted for her size. CHARLES JOSEPH McMURRAY. One of Nature’s noblemen. Another Western product. “Mac’’ is one of our single men, and it doesn’t bother him either. A most promising baseball career was cut short in his sopho- more year when he was injured while “sliding second.” Noted for his heavy tread. M A R G A RET M A Iv V M cN AM A R A. From every blush that kindles in thy cheeks, Ten thousand little loves and graees spring. Margaret is another of the numerous ones who add ciuietness to the 1913 class of our Alma Mater. Although she seldom speaks, she demands attention when she does. Noted for her roseleaf blush. HJALMAR HERBERl ME ER. Thought is deeper than all speech. Hjalmar is one of our midgets and when he hasn t anything to do just smiles. Would rather listen than have others listen. Noted for his smile. 32 GERTRUI3K AIJCE MORAN.

A spirit yearning in desire To follow knowledge like a sinking star.

We Itelieve she must have some strange charms to bring out quiet Plenry D. from the wild-woods. Noted for her modesty. CATHERINE MARIE NESTOR. Red as a rose was she. Kate is secretary of the Debating Club and has gained great ease and facility of expression in that capacity. Strange to relate, with that combination she doesn’t get along very well with Miss S. Noted for her penmanship. 33 MAkV ALX ' IXA XEWnURG. So smooth, so sweet, so silver ' , the voiee. This young lady is a stranger in our midst and, from what we have seen of her, looks pretty nice. Is a Civics shark. Xoted for her voice. DORIS STEWART XEWTOX. Uncertain, coy and hard to please. Full of wit, and fun and free. “Doddy” is a second Queen of Hearts but now she has hopelessly lost her own. She’s right there when there’s any fun around. Evidently likes changes. Xoted for her bubbling spirits. HARIOX LUCIE OAKES. Speak of me as I am, nothing extenuate. Nor set down an ' thing in malice. Marion causes no commotion around the school building. Spends her summer on the roller skates, and is an artist at it. X’ oted for her skating. HAROLD JOSEPH O’COXXOR. A smile for all, a welcome glad, A jovial, coaxing way he had. The walls of F. H. S. have been brightened for the last four years by ‘‘Cuddy’s” pleasant smile. He has played baseball off and on for four years and did a good work as chairman of the second class party committee. Everybody likes Cudd} ' . Xewman Club. Xoted for his gray hair(s). 34 MARY MARCELLA O’DONNEl.L. As chaste as unsunned snows. Mary doesn’t believe in the giddy frivolities of life. This is strange in one so young, hut no doubt Mary herself can throw a little light on it. Noted for her being methodical. ESTHER ROSE MARIE OTTO. Sighed and looked unutterable things. Esther looks pretty nice lined up with her ’cello, hut refuses to he so kind to any young man. All we can do, then, is to look in those goo-goo eyes of hers and he satisfied. Noted for her eyes. DWIGHT COGGSHALL PAGE. God made him — Therefore let him pass as a man. Dwight is not one of the lily-white youths of the class; no, quite the contrary. Has pursued the In- dustrial Course and among the various elective courses, has had remarkable success in Mecca-ism. Noted for his piano playing. MILDRED CHARLOTTE PETERSON. Little, but oh my !

Noted for her baby stare. 35 MARION KATHRYN IMIKLPS. She thinks that men are ihled flies, And will not hear of lover’s si hs. Nevertheless we hope that Marion will go through life with other companions than a i)arrot and a cat. Noted for her dumb animals. ANNIE RUDD PINE. ! Assume a virtue if you have it not. Annie and C. T. get along famously, for she has been the official pilot of the Woodbury perambulator. She spends her remaining time doing collateral reading for “Merry Christmas.” Noted for her charges. | t i RICHARD JAMES PORTER. On their own merits modest men are dumb. That must be the reason why Dick keeps quiet. The only place we ever hear him talk is in elocution and that is seldom. Tries hard to convince Miss Brown that he knows his English.

RALPfl HENRY SAWYER. The world knows little of its famous men. We have tried hard to keep Ralph from the girls; hut all in vain.

Noted for her quiet demeanor. 39 STELLA MARIE SEXTON. As a wit, if not first, in the ver ' first line. Stella is jollier than she looks and vou can find this out by looking twice at her.

Before my mirror night and da ' . -primping, I am bust’. “Jo” is one of our belles and has been kept pretty busy during her four years refusing marriage offers.

As editor-in-chief of the Class Book, Charlie has a little on the rest of us. Shines as the class artist, deliater and public speaker. In his attempts to find a suitable model for the “Vaillant girl” he has made the rounds of quite a few, and is still looking. New- man Clul).

When in September, 1909, this i ' ronp of mortals assembled in the corridors of old F. H. S., we were but the shadow of onr present greatness. Since that eventfnl day when we i)ccame a part of the imdergradnate body of F. H. S. we ha e certainly achieved great things. In numbers as well as in alnlity we were great, and this made possible (3nr success in so many varied branches of the school cnr- ricnlnm. Giving the closest attention to onr school work, we have suc- ceeded in laying a foundation of knowledge which is the pride of the h acnlty as well as the envy of the underclassmen. A retrospective glance over the history of the Class shows many varied experiences, many victories, few defeats, and a bcnchcial in- dnence which will be felt even in the years t(; come. We were always ready to take a keen interest in the affairs of onr Alma Mater. Whatever tended to improve the school or pupils we undertook with a vim which brought almost invarialrly instantaneous success. Now we can look back on onr short years as a happy spot in onr lives and look forward with eagerness to what awaits ns in onr future years with the feeling that “What we sow, so shall we reap.” 45 Enthroned ainoni ' the many hills Onr Alma ] Iater lies; And knowledge to the thirsty world From Wisdom ' s font supplies. Of all fair mothers, fairest she : Most wise of all that be. Most true of all the time, claim we. Onr dear old Fitchbnrg High. The friendships formed within these walls So strong and hrm today. Though rears may come, and years may go. Will never fade away. For decades and for centuries. Though rears of time may roll. Its ties shall lire eternally. Praise to onr Bine and Gold.

T his is the third class of Seniors to graduate from the Industrial Department, and you can see what a lusty bunch we are. We have upheld the reputation esta1)lished by the original twenty in athletics, society and work, and believe that we shall rival them in the business world also. We have shed honor on the Fitchburg High School, for onr fame, which is world-wide, has brought visitors from every section of the country to the city to see this department, and onr director lias been called upon to address many gatherings in other cities to tell them about it and help them to establish a similar course. The annual spring trip this year was to Providence, R. I., where we spent the day visiting the Brown Sharpe Wfg ' . Co., and tlie General Fire Extinguishing Co.’s ])lants, bringing back a whole lot of new ideas to Force Fitchburg Forward. Those who went to the University of Cincinnati last fab are making good in fine shape and several more expect to go next year. The Industrial Society has had a prosperous year closing with the annual banquet, June 18, to the Industrial graduating class, followed by a dance to which all members of graduating class were invited. There has been one sad event during this year which has been of particular moment to this department. Mr. Daniel Simonds, late president of the Simonds Mfg. Co. and founder of the Industnal Course, died May 4. He was intensely interested in the success of this course and this was expressed in many ways. A modest man, he would not accept that meed of credit that was really his, and the example he set of high personal ideals and sterling business character ’ill be an inspiration to all of us. 65 OltniKSTItA F.

Football S TAR1lN(i the season ai ainst the heavy l.owell eleven, the loot- l)all team, thong h very light, was al)le to hold them to a 3 to 0 seore. ( )verllowing with eonhdenee, they were l)eaten on tue lollow- ing Saturday 1)y Nashua, a far inferior team. On Colnm1)ns da - ot the following week, Leominster 11. S. eame to iMtehl)nrg eonhdenl ol an easy victory; but Id 11. S. proved to l)e the more dangerous, and were it not for the slip])ery field which was to the disad antage ol the light Litchbnrg team, there is no doubt hnt what L. 11. S. would have come out on the smaller end of the score instead of holding F. 11. S. to a scoreless tie. The (lardner team came to Fitchlinrg on die next Saturday, and returned wdth a If) to nctory. h. 11. S. played rings aioiind (laidnei, hnt poor jiidgnient on the part of the ([iiarterhack gave the game awxiy. F. li. S. then went to Clinton and trimmed them 20 to () in tlie best game of the season. The team continned its wdnning streak by de- feating St. John’s H. S. of Worcester 7 to 6. They then journeyed to Manchester, N. 11., where they were hopelessly outclassed b} M. M. S., the champion high school team of that state. ( )n Xov. lO, Gardner H. S. proved its right to the championship of the Wbachnsett League hy defeating F. H. S. 12 to 0. Lack of team work and jioor generalship now had their w ' oist effects on the team, and F. H. S. was lieatcn 3 to 0 l)y Clinton, tiie poorest team in the league. Again, on Thanksgiving day, they lost to Leominster, 19 to 0. Although the team lost seven out of the ten games, the season can not be termed a failure. Financially it was a success, and besides giving the fellows the usual physical beneht with few injuries, it served to bring out an unusual display of school spirit on the pai t of the pupils. This cannot be overlooked, and a word of thanks is due to the school in general for the fine support given the team under such adverse conditions; to Mr. William Leighton of the Faculty for his interest in leading the school in practicing the school songs and train- ing the cheer leaders ; to the cheer leaders. Miss Marie Houghton, Miss Aladelaine Sweeney, fohn () Connor, JMartin Ryan, and Richaid 75 Woodward; and to Messrs. James M. McNamara and James A. Chal- mers of the h aculty for their interest shown toward the team durin ' I lie season. At the close of the season the letter-men elected Alfred h ' . Des- mond captain of next year’s team. He has played left half-back for the last two seasons and has not only done all of the punting, but has also been the best ground gainer. The Summary, Date. Place. Team. Opp. F. H. S.

There is little doubt but what it was the best team m the leag ' ue and in this vicinity, but the loss of games, and thus the champioushi]) of the league, was due to the fact that the players had to be coutimially shifted from one position to auothei iii oidei to hil the places of tiie ])layers who were obliged to leave for various reasons at the most critical times. F. 11. S. won two of the six league garner and six of the other eight. The base-rmmiug, fielding, hitting, and all-round tine leadership of Captain Moriarty were the features of the Date.

We know that yours is a very sad case, but while there’s life there ' s hope, and there is a faint sug ' estion of life in you yet. Fan the spark and jierhaps the dame will appear, lor the day of miracles has not yet passed. Look up to us as your modei. and strive to do what you can never hope to do — ecpial the splendid record of the Class of ’13. And so in partiu we warn you to avoid the toys and knicknacks which have interested you for the past three years, and seek to imitate the untarnished record which the noble Class of ’13 has bequeathed to you. 1915 . X N you, oh! Sophomores, we see faint o-leaminos and susiiicions or future g-reatness even almost equal to our own. our path lies before you to choose, set with the lights which we have left behind to guide you on your way. And do not forget that the infant class is at your heels, and we all well know that in that class there is nothing- hut an unfathomable conglomeration. Ffowever, cleave to the blazed trail, and who knows but what you in your turn will do honor t J your school in the coming years? 1916 . B y very careful and painstaking examination we have found out who you are, but what you are, w e can never hoi)e to tell. A ' e know that you follow only too willingly the erroneous lead of ’14. Reware! for there is such a thing as going beyond redemption. Nat- urally we take a fatherly interest in you, but we do not underestimate the arduous task of trying to reform you. However, l)race up, bke men, seek to do better instead of worse, and you may do something and be something yet. 91 W ITH a sickening plunge the car left the road and I felt myselt sinking quietly into the inky-black cloud which enveloped me. Strange and indistinct shapes hovered around. y degrees it grew brighter, and finally so bright that I could view the beantifnl city into which I had descended — the city of the hutiire. As I scanned the horizon I saw a wayfarer approaching seated on a mule and apparently enjoying himself. As he drew near, what was my surprise to recog- nize the " " familiar features of “Ox Kennedy.” Ihit with his customary speed !!!!!! he vanished quickly from my sight. Down the street came a monstrous motor truck with who do yon suppose at the helm? Why, Ray Foss, the human buzz-wagon, and seated in the truck was the human freight. What do you know, all my friends of the Class of ’13! Hisses McCarthy, Rome, Cutting, Durling, Mattson, the two Beverlys, Crozier, Nestor and others. But, horror of horrors, seated in the middle with a huge banner on which was printed ‘Wotes for Women,” was Johnnie Fletcher. As 1 soliloquized on the state of affairs the truck sped by. 1 walked along the street looking for new sights and old familiar faces. But seeing in front of me a large opera house I decided to drop m. hlorence Gillis was selling tickets, so I gave her the high sign and passed in. I hardly recognized Proctor and Meyer in their usher’s suits. On 93 rcacliino ' my seat I settled back to enjoy myself. The curtain was ii]) and Madelaine Iloland was makiiii ' a frenzied a])|)eal to the villain, who, underneath his paint bore a strong- resemblance to Matthews And then that pony ballet that trooped out, having in its members v ' lashing Kate Mcdrath, Rache Donahue, (irace Hughes, Mildred Reterson, and so on. ddiey gamboled around doing that “Gaby Glide” to the accompaniment of a raggy orchestra led by Jo I ' ine, who was scrai)ing away on his violin, with Fat Delaney trying to help him out, but on an entirely different key. ddie sight of these old faces l)roiight back many memories and I hastened out looking for new developments. I ' he first person that luy eyes rested on was Alart Mannix. It was with some difficulty that I broke away from hini, and in that short time he had compelled me to buy some stock in a zinc mine in Kalamazoo. After steering away from this unprofitable neighborhood, my eyes chanced to catch a sign up on one of the high buildings, “Edward A. Adams, M. D.,” and you can bet your life I hastened toward the elevator to see if there were any more of my classmates there. Ed Adams was just coming down smoking a “7-20-4,” and I stopped a minute to chat with him. In the course of this conversation I found out that Chink AVillis w as traveling with a circus billed as “the biggest joke of them all,” that IMul Tuttle and Mildred had settled down, that Hook Higgins was running a white lunch, and that George Potter was editing a Socialist newspaper. With this news seething in my brain, I got into the elevator and went to the top floor. We came very near going straight through the roof, and I fell when I saw that Train was the elevator boy. I got a glimpse of Mary Howe taking down some rapid-fire dictation; I winked at her but she didn’t see me. The sign on the next door had “Leroy C. Converse, Attorney-at-Law.” I opened the door to go in, but he was busy, as he told me later, making out a divorce between Dunbar and Gladys. This surprised me. I almost ran into Marie Champagne, with Stella Sexton, Astrid Gustafson, and Ruth Gardner. I wished, when they told me that they were all teaching school, that I was going to school once more. Seeing that I couldn’t hold my own there, I bade them good-bye. I noticed the various stores with their elegant fronts. Many members of the class were represented here also. There was “Joseph Israel, Ladies’ Tailor,” “M. Ryan Co., Skins and Furs,” “Sawyer ' s Tea Room.” 94 Pyiie, Morrill, and Beer were runnini the biggest machine sho]) in the town, but I heard that they were to dissolve partnership. Al- though it was getting late 1 conld not go by the court house withoni dropping- in; Judge Woods was presiding. The first case called l)ronght out (jertriule Beverly and Archibald De Lnde. lie claimed that she disturbed him every night by reading aloud her papers on suffrage. Joseph Corley, Hazel Cummings, Ruth Crozier, and Alice Connihan testified that the noise was awful. The jury, composed of Cutler, Barnard, Bjorn, Fischer, Hall, and Hooper, returned a verdict of guilty. The defendant was warned against any future atteinjits of the same nature and fined eighty-nine cents. Dot Newton was next arraigned, the charge being willful and felonious breaking of hearts. She was also found guilty on this count, 1)ut given another chance on condition that she would try to repair the damage done. This closed the ])roceedings for the day, and as I was hungry I decided to have a little lunch. Sitting down waiting for a waitress, I was not prepared for the bowl of soup that was poured down my neck. But looking at the proprietor I concluded not to get angry. It was Marion Rowley. The manager, K. Wyman, offered profuse apologies to me and to the crowd of onlookers, among whom was Jo Shea, Beatrice Upton, Esther Otto, Dave Colburn, Howard Caswell, and then some. But I was not in a mood to do any talking, so put on my hat and walked out to get cooled off . I hailed a taxicab, but never noticed that Page was the chauffeur, and unfortunately for me he drove the machine straight against the side of the building, and I struck w ' ith a crash on my head. At this my eyes opened to find an old rul e pouring a pail of water over my head. The city of the future and the Class of ' 13 was once more a creature of the mind. 95 Some Sorij Hits. “Take a Little J ' ip from 1 ' ather.” “The Lost Chord. " “I’nt on Your Old Gray Tonnet.

That the whole blooming Faculty sometimes becomes a bore. Senior — “What do you think of Culebra Cut. ' " ’’ Freshman — Well — er — 1 never tried it. They don ' t let me smoke a pipe.” As into Civics forth I go, A little prayer I utter low. And say in accents soft and deep. Now I lav me down to sleep. M. J. M. 102 r.atin Prof. — “Don’t you think you’d l)etter turn the pag ' c? You’ve already translated ei ht lines on the next.’’ — Ex. Dark street Pjanana peel. Fat man Virginia reel. At Thanksgiving Day game — “Who said that Fogarty ’14 could play football?” “W’ell, he is some place-kicker anyway.” Wouldn’t it be funny if : Jo Israel had his hair cut cocoanut. Pop Edmands was principal. Parke Parnard smoked a Pii)pin. lohnnie Fletcher forgot to sing in cha])el. School forgot to open. F. H. S. had a gymnasium. The bass drum s]:)lit open. The orchestra played in tune. Every hour was omitted. Mr. Woodbury had a collar the right size. Eogarty ’14 paid back all the nickels he owes. Teacher — “What are the most ])opular words in high school?” Ereshie — “I don’t know.” Teacher — “Correct.” ] r. C. S. — ‘‘At what time of day did this battle begin?” Vaillant— “Night.” A green little Freshman in a green little way, Some chemicals mixed for fun one day, Now the green little grasses tenderly wave. O’er the green little Freshman’s green little grave. 103 How would you like to see: Prof. Hunter leadini; ' the “Harde d ' l louueur.’’ Pill Leighton managing a musical comedy. Hiss Fairbanks walking the tight-rope. Shorty Gifford in a hoopskirt. Hr. Premo. Stiles, and Clark in ihe bald-headed low at the Pijou. Hr. Harding seated quietly somewhere in the fourth dimension. Alerrv Christmas when she couldn’t talk. Irene Cowles talking French to a ‘HVop.” Little jabs and pushes. Little drops of gore, Pring to our attention The football game once more. She — “iMv father weighed only four pounds wdien he was born. He — “Did he live?” — Ex. There are two things about “Chink” Hffllis and those are his feet. HTnted — A place on next year’s football team. — hogarty 14. 104 THE EDITORS desire to call your attention to the advertisements, withovit which the pnhlication of this book would be almost impossible.

It is strong, plain and well balanced, harmonious, giving more prominence to the substance of the story than to the manner of its telling. It requires the right workmanship, stock, type, machinery, time. It sometimes costs more than the other kind it is always worth more. It is the kind we like to do.
