POSSUNT QUIA POSSE VIDENTUR THE GREEN AND GOLD 1914 VOLUME I FITCHBURG, MASSACHUSETTS PUBLISHED BY THE CLASS OF 1914, FITCHBURG HIGH SCHOOL JUNE, MCMXIV TO HIS EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR DAVID L WALSH OUR FOREMOST CITIZEN, WHOSE SLOGAN, LIKE OURS, HAS BEEN “ FORCE FITCHBURG FORWARD ” WE, THE CLASS OF 1914 DEDICATE THIS BOOK FITCHBURG ON THE MAP There’s a general satisfaction Because it happened so. The glad hand of the victor, The good-will of the foe; The optimistic feeling — The Freeman’s surest test, The l)lue sky’s still above us And whatever is, is best. There’s a thorn among the roses That crown the victor’s brow ; He was Fitchburg’s only yesterday — • He’s Massachusetts’ now — Her white flag’s in his keeping, And spotless will it wave; He’ll keep its folds unsullied, We know — because he’s Dave. We’re Forcing Fitchburg Forward, And in the days to come There’s visions of the White House, And that is going some. A Massachusetts infant Too big-grown for her lap — • The Fitchburg sleeping ’mong the hills Now covers all the map. 5 THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS EXECUTIVE CHAMBER STATE HOUSE, BOSTON. To the Class of 1914, Fitchburg Fligh School: Massachusetts contributes more money in proportion to her pop- ulation than any other state in the Union toward the education of lier future citizens. In return for this evidence of generosity, she naturally expects a high standard of citizenship and a continuation of that loyalty and devotion and high civic standards which have char- acterized her citizenship since earliest days. The Commonwealth takes especial delight each year in congratulating the young women and the young men who leave her high schools for labors in the wider activities of life. It is a source of pleasure for me as the Chief Executive of Massa- chusetts, not only to congratulate the Class of 1914 of the Fitchburg High School, but to wish each individual an honorable and successful career in his or her chosen life’s work. The Fitchburg High School has an honorable record ; its graduates have met with marked success in the professional, industrial and civic life of Massachusetts. The success of those who preceded you should be an inspiration to all. Do not forget that industry is as essential for a successful career in the outside world as within the class-room. 7 UNATTAINED. Deal gently with us, ye who read, Our largest hope is unfulfilled: The promise still outruns the deed ; The tower, but not the spire, we build. Our whitest pearl we never find. Our ripest fruit we never reach ; The flowering moments of the mind Lose half their petals in our speech. BOARD OF EDITORS, CLASS BOOK. IBoarJi nf iEhitiira (£. E. 0udun ICamr ur Wk Wallis W.

Every Senior teacher daily acknowledges the intelli- gence of our class. When we entered the high school, the teachers found we were so well trained that it was thought advisable to drop the ninth grade. At the time that our intellectual ability was commanding this change, our behavior was necessitating another radical change, that of dis- carding the demerit system. There was no use for demerits any longer. At this time an entirely new idea was conceived. Athletics, de- bating clubs, and the various other organizations connected with the school have been sadly neglected since, but our daily matinee under the direction of Miss Maud Whitney has received the earnest support of each and every member of our class. Starting to climb as we did, on a rung far from the lowest on the ladder of fame, we rose steadily until in our Junior year we stood on one much higher than any other class had on its day of graduation. While the Seniors were for months preparing a little play, we, in a period of two weeks, pushed through the pageant which everyone knows to have been the superlative degree of success. 12 Then, wishing to keep the school in ood order, we took it in our hands to remove the very detrimental Senior flag from the top of the building, although we were urged by Mr. Woodbury not to bother about it. In athletics our class also excelled. Through the toilings of Des- mond, Holton, Porter, Vose, Howarth, Johnson, Reardon, Fine, Remal, Joyce, and Davis, we were able to win the league champion- ship in football; and in basketball, with Fogarty, Johnson, Water- house, and Vose we won the same high honor. The class showed its spirit at the choosing of a dedicatee for the class book and still again at the meeting held to plan money- raising schemes. We had a thrilling speech on making the book “a business proposition” and using dedicatees as “advertisements.” By this spirit the book committee were stirred up and have, in the short period of four weeks, published this, the best of all class books. In patriotism too, we are of the highest order. At the beginning of our troubles with Mexico, our Senior football squad volunteered their services, and this fact was the direct instigator of the splendid letter of appreciation of our class which President Wilson sent us. In fact, the Juniors are the only body who do not appreciate our worth, but to these we say, “May they follow along this same course of intelligence, behavior, athletics, school spirit, and patriotism, and then they too will appreciate those who have beaten out this pathway, paved with yellow roses and shaded with everblooming laurels,” for now at graduation we stand on the top rung of our ladder, not toppling back, but ready to put our foot upon the clouds, than which no mortal can hope to ascend higher. 13 THE CLASS OF 1914, GEORGE EATON DANIELS. “Let George do it.” And he did. George has been a most efficient president this year, and has l)ecome a prime favorite with us all. We are sure he will become as popular at Dartmouth, to which college George must needs proceed next year. Lie is noted for three things — his speeches, his smile, and his blush. HAZEL ANNA FITZGIBBON. First favorite, not without cause. For two years Hazel has been the leading girl in cur class as vice-president, and has always been the most popular. She believes in having a good time and has helped make life cheerful in F. H. S., but her lessons have always been up to “A” mark just the same. Hazel is fond of a lot of finery, especially bows (beaux). Noted for her ability to write other people’s secretarial reports. F. F. F. EDITH MARION JOEL. Wisdom sits alone topmost in heaven. As secretary of the class Edith has been most effi- cient and popular. She is a hard worker and we congratulate her upon her winning a scholarship. Au- thor of the class poem. We suggest to Edith the keeping of an engagement book to avoid making fudge unnecessarily. Favorite occupation, repairing broken furniture. J. G. T. ROBERT BULLOCK MILLER. Look at that scamp of sanctimonious style, Who pilfers millions with a harmonious smile. j “Bob” has held our class funds for two years but has never exerted himself in collecting dues. They say Bob is some musician, at least he plays second fiddle in the “Morse Orchestra.” He is one of our best men and is a friend to everybody. Manager of Track. Lambda Sigma. 15 ALICE ORDWAY ADAMS. Intelligence and courtesy are sometimes combined. Alice surely has never wasted time; works both inside and outside of school. Came to us in our Sophomore year and has ever since then, in a quiet vay, made her presence somewhat felt. She received honorable mention in the Mathematics Prize contest in her Junior year. Noted for her distinguished Deutsche. CLYDE WILLIAM ALBEE. It is a great plague to be too handsome a man. Noted for his artistic presentation of the modern dances. Always on the run to catch the car going South. Wherever you see “Cutie” there is always a crowd of girls. There is safety in numbers, Cutie. Famed as the man who still owes Bill Hunter a dollar. RUTH NEAMIE ANDERSON. A maid of graee and complete majesty. Well, Ruth, some day we expect to see a portrait of Arthur, done by the aid of thy artist’s brush, hang- ing on the walls of the Louvre. Ruth may always be seen at the dances. Noted for her artistic designs. WALTER EDWARD ANDERSON. The elements So mixed in him, that Nature might stand up And say to all the world, “This was a man!” Walter is the envy of all the other boys in the Senior Play. Why? N’importe. Walter helps to keep us alive and out of the hospital by sweeping up the germs which we leave after each session of school. His oratorical ability is the pride of the class, and we expect some day to hear some of his speeches in Congress. 16 MARGARET STEARNS AYER. Her voice was ever soft, gentle, and low. You could measure her height by the amount of her words. We have known her two years. As good as she is small. She is one of our many classmates headed for Normal, and we expect she will shine there. Noted for her size. ALICE TERESA BARNICLE. She’s a most exquisite lady. Alice considers herself one of our beloved faculty one week, and one of us the other ; but she is very likable every week. Her proofs for the pictures be- trayed her usual (?) habit of makings eyes at ? ? ? GLADYS MAE BEER. She looks as clear as morning roses newly washed with dew In accounting for the young lady’s good looks a strong argument would be that she comes from West Fitchburg. She meets her escort after school down at Hartwell street, and the young man usually takes his exercise by riding up West with her. Well ! Gladys is noted for her blushes. PAUL BARRETT BEERS. My heart’s in the Highlands a-chasing a dear. “Kink” is another one of those who tries to work in a shop every other week. His hair on the top of his head curls like the hair on the back of a Pomeran- ian dog. Paul likes the girls and just at present is rather interested in a girl in Melrose Highlands. Noted for his regular attendance at the Board of Trade meetings. 17 MARGARET EVA BLAKELY. I hear a voice you cannot hear, Which says I must not stay ; I see a hand you cannot see, Which beckons me away. Margaret has a strong liking for romantic names; for instance, Percival and Reginald. We shall be sorry to lose her beaming countenance, for she is now going to far-off New York state to the Percy of her dreams and expects to “live happily ever after.” Noted for her piano teaching. J. G. T. CATHERINE FRANCES BRAY. A still, small voice. Kitty is always there with the lessons. In fact, she spends so much of her time studying that she hasn’t any left in which to grow. Noted for her nice, little voice. EDGAR LEWIS BUGBEE. I am asleep, do not awaken me. Edgar is always asleep until Marion arrives. Then he gets up energy to talk a little. Chief occupation, falling in love. Edgar always leaves the lunch counter early — we wonder why? MARION RUTH BURGESS. Wide is the gulf between me and man. Marion is little but she is wise. She always has her lessons, but she gets the teachers’ goat by not ex- citing her tongue very much. We think Marion will be a fervent suffragette because of her strong voice and her fondness for the men. 18 GEORGINA SMART CALDOW. Society is not a comfort to one not sociable. She has not shocked us with any scandalous be- havior so far, but we still have hopes of an awakening. She proved an invaluable assistant to Woods on the class photography committee. We expect Georgy will be head nurse in an orphan’s asylum some day. RUTH JANE CASWELL. Sober, steadfast, and demure. Another Minorite. She loves to show her authori- ty in correcting beginners. Has a strange attraction for Sophomore boys. Noted for her hair. ELIZABETH ALICE CLARK. With malice toward none, with charity for all. One of our most brilliant and honored sisters. Interested in Red and Gray; Debating, and Literary Club. She has something to do with everything in F. H, S. but love; and for that she goes to Leominster. Chief occupation, singing “Nearer, my God, to Thee.” Amen. FLORENCE MARY CONDON. One of Erin’s fair daughters. Floss would love to shine as a lady. Has condes- cending manners and ascending ideals. Spends most of her time in McDonald’s coal office acting as book- keeper. Future leading lady at Auditorium. 19 MARY VERACUNDA CONLON. Methinks thou art more honest now than wise. Mary is a good natured, happy-go-lucky girl, but beware the one who agitates her temper. She’s got one all right — eh, Mary? One of our “hello girls.” CATHERINE CORLISS. Sacred and sweet was all I saw in her. A quiet little maid of some intellect. She hails from East Fitchburg and is noted for her studious application. We understand that Catherine has hopes of joining the Red Cross society. ALICE GERTRUDE COUGHLIN. By her in stature the tall Amazon Had stood a pigmy’s height. Alice is fond of Athletes; especially those from West Fitchburg. We missed her for three months this winter. Usher at Whalom Theatre during the summer. Noted for her length. HAROLD STEBBINS DAVIS. Love your neighbor as yourself. “Bull” does not say much at school, but oh my gracious ! you ought to hear him outside of school. He tried football this year, winning his letter. Noted for his attachment for his neighbors. Zeta Phi. 20 CAROLYN FRANCES DEXTER. With words of wond’rous, pond’rous sound. “Carol” stands high in her studies as well in the hearts of her friends. She has entertained the debat- ing club by her vocal solos and has edited the School Notes department of the Red and Gray. She deserves much credit for her assistance in raising money for the Class Book. Noted for her love for the boys. J. G. T., Funaughthea. WILLIAM DOCEKAL. Men of few words are the best men. “Bill” is certainly a man of few words, but is the exception in the latter point although he manages to get by. For bluffing he is in a class by himself. We recommend that he take the next three months and sleep, and if that doesn’t work that he go back to Austria-Hungary. Noted for his brightness. HENRY JAMES DONLON. Men of long words are the best men. He likes to impress Miss Smith with his extensive vocabulary which the latter does not appreciate. We expect to see him principal of a kindergarten some day. We don’t expect “Don” to be lured into an elopement until he has finished his normal school course. Chief occupation, filling space in Room 26. HELEN BERNADINE DOUAI. Men are deceivers ever, To one girl constant never. One of Miss Greathead’s pets. She is a quiet little girl but has a pleasing voice, as we discovered one Monday morning in Assembly Hall. Who Vv ouldn’t like to be one of her pupils when she is a kindergarten teacher? F. F. F. 21 LEONARD FRANCIS DOWNES. My deeds and speeches, Sir, are lines drawn from one center; what I promise to do I’ll do. Leonard takes all that is coming his way, but was never known to put himself out to get anything. We expect him to write a book on “Opportunity.” One of Miss Brown’s few ideal pupils. Newman Club. CLARA ELIZABETH DRAHEIM. If I can serve mankind ’tis well. Clara has served on our Red and Gray board, and has displayed much talent as a “Deutsche” poetess. She holds the record in our exceptionally brilliant class for acquiring A’s. She comes from high up on the hills of Fitchburg, which accounts for her high stand- ing as a student. Noted for her brains. CHARLES MORTON DUNBAR. That boy with the grave mathematical look. Charlie has made a success of the industrial course, and has also gained considerable headway in another direction under the guidance of a Junior girl. Charlie attends the Highland Baptist church regularly on Sun- day evenings. Let us on to the attraction, Charlie. Noted for his constancy to Carrie. DOROTHY GERTRUDE EMORY. Carry me to my grave. Dot has won for herself a place of popularity al- though she has shunned the opposite sex. She is also some actress. She possesses a voice of marvellous quality, and we expect to hear her some day as prima donna at Shea’s. We judge that her diet has been chiefly ice water and toothpicks. Noted for her love of pompadours. J. G. T. 22 HELEN ANGELA ENRIGHT. An angel in her wa s She ne’er did harm to anyone. Although Helen is a steady, sensible girl, she does not see anything worth while in the male element of our class; but perhaps sometime in the future she will capture one of the little ones in her school. Noted for her plugging. PHILIP GOODNOW FAIRBANKS. Thou art as long and lank and lean as is the ribbed sea- sand. “Phil” never seemed to be willing to hurt himself with anything. He seems to be rather bashful during school — but we won’t tell all we know about trips to the movies. Noted for his ability to get things his own way. EILEEN ELIZABETH FARRELL. The angel of the school. Eileen has a temper which she has displayed when Mr. Leighton presented her with a complimentary ticket to afternoon session. Chief occupation, trying to prove valuable to a dentist. Noted for her dimples. F. F. F. JENNY FINE. Few words suffice. Jenny seldom speaks, but a few words are worth more than those of our silver-tongued orators (apolo- gies to Holden and Rogal). They say Jenny is right there with the goods at the Lincoln hall dances. Noted for her soft voice. 23 SAMUEL FINE Excuses are of no nvail. Sammy can give more excuses in one minute than a talking machine can in five. He is always chasing the ladies but has not caught one yet, as far as we know. Noted for his piano playing at football prac- tices. BEATRICE MAE FINN. Fat, jolly, and fair. Mae has such an innocent look that you would never guess what a mischievous piece she is. She not only sends jokes over the wires every afternoon, but also breaks about three stools a week in the telephone office. ALBERT LEO FOGARTY. What care I when I can lie and rest Kill time, and take life at its very best. “Bert” does just about enough to cover the law. Has never been known to exert himself except when he picked up junk for the class book fund, and the re was method in this madness, for there was a girl in the party. Noted for his self-esteem. ROSE GAMPERT. Along the cool, sequestered vale of life She kept the noiseless tenor of her way. Rose is Mr. Woodbury’s private secretary every other week. She is able to reach the top shelf in the library with the aid of a step-ladder. Chief occupation, trying to keep Miss Sherwin pleasant. 24 ISABELLE MIRIAM GILCHREST. Ilow pretty lier blushing was, and how •he blushed again ! Miriam soothes our troubled spirits every morn- ing with her violin. We hear that she is quite skilled ill playing love songs on Sunday nights for a certain young boy, but we do not know whether to expect to see her in the Boston Symphony Orchestra or settled down happily. Noted for her happy-go-lucky air. MERRILL ALEXANDER GREENE. I’ve often wushcd that 1 had clear For life, six hundred pounds a year. “Greenie” seems to have a rather difficult time holding down a job this year. We expect to see him foreman of an establishment of his own some day, for that will be the only thing which would assure him steady and satisfactory employment. MARGUERITE THEODORA GRIFFIN. The blushing beauiics of a modest maid. Marguerite has inspired us with her poems and has also served on the joke department of the Red and Gray. She spends all her time warding off Cupid’s arrows, but gets her lessons and makes a good time wherever she goes. Chief occupation, entertaining Mr. Edmands’ “bug” class with caricatures. F. F. F. ROBERT ELLSWORTH HADLEY. “When the Devil was ill, the Devil a saint would be; “When the Devil was well, the Devil a saint was he.’’ Bob shows his patriotism by manufacturing shells v ith which to kill off the Mexicans. He is an able follower of Mr. Primeau and we expect to see him occupying one of Uncle Sam’s prominent positions in the near future. He ain’t ugly. 25 HELEN MARIE HASSET. Dip nity and austerity rule supreme. “Sticks” is some good-looking girl and also quite speedy in shorthand. Her heart left F. H. S. when a certain young man did, hut cheer up, Helen, there will he others at normal school next year. Noted for her lofty air. HERMAN OSCAR HOHBERGER. Smiling always with a never-failing serenity of countenance. Herman thinks he will be an orator some day, judging from appearances at recess. His chief occu- pation is studying, but loafing comes a close second. He is noted for his arguments for the financial side of the class book. HAROLD HENRY HOLDEN. All dressed up and nowhere to go. “Fat” has a pretty good opinion of himself and likes to be considered a “tough guy.” He has never done any studying and bluffs all the time except in examinations. He drives an auto on the side and we expect to see him chauffeur for Tommy Blood some day. AMY CATHERINE HOLLAND. So much good so truly tried Some for her were deified. “Mon Amie” has been pretty busy this year an- swering letters, receiving callers, and acting in her official capacity as custodian of cast-off class pins. Amy is headed for Radcliffe, where she hopes to become learned enough to teach French (at F. H. S.?). J. G. T. 26 RICHARD ARTHUR HOLTON. L’homme de cent filles ! Dick is never so happy as when surrounded by girls. We wonder why he is so fond of Low(e) per- sonages, but perhaps Mary can solve the riddle. We advise him to secure a secretary. He is prominent in football, baseball, and track. He is very bashful (in the play with his bride only). Chief occupation, call- ing. Zeta Phi. JOHN FRANCIS HORGAN. What is a woman to me or I to her, That I should speak to her ? John has been our hardest problem to tackle. For four years we have tried to convince him that there are better things to do in school than to study, biit we haven’t succeeded. He sometimes forgets himself and smiles and he has once been known to laugh. Probably when he gets to Holy Cross he will be chosen captain of the Teedle-dee Wink Club. Noted for his love for the girls (?). HELEN MARIE HOUGHTON. Any rags, any bones, any bottles today? Marie is noted for her energy and hustle. She is responsible for the individual cuts in the class book and for this we thank her. Vermont is Marie’s favorite state in the Union — and there’s a reason why. She is also fond of “Dicky birds.” Chief occupation, writing- letters. J. G. T. EVERETT FREDERIC HOWARTH. I love diamonds — but oh, 3 ' ou Opal ! “Ev” was one of our strong men on the football team, but failed to make good in basketball. He is one of the best-natured fellows in the class. He has tried all year to influence Miss Cowles that he is the smart- est in the class, but hasn’t succeeded yet. Noted for the length of his chemistry period. Lambda Sigma. 27 FREDERICK WALTER HOYT. The golden opportunity is never ofliered twice. Fred is one of our two celebrated chimney sweeps. In spite of this, he usually has some excuse for not having things penetrate, and when he tried to drive something home, it ended in a trip to Burbank. Noted for his lack of funds. BURTON LAWRENCE JENNA. A small man, but bright withal, “Burt” is the shortest boy of our class, but the smallest things are not always the least. He is one of our numerous Industrial boys, spending every other week at school. “Burt” is not much when it comes to girls, but he is a bright student, and succeeds in getting good marks. Noted for his shortness. ARTHUR MAURITZ JOHNSON. wither thou goest I will go, my Ruth. Practical Arts is responsible for Arthur. He is another o ne of our recruits from G. M. Parks’s and has been one of the few tongueless members of the male sex in our class. Noted for his affection for the class artist. JOHN EMIL JOHNSON. As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean. “John Johnson” takes the industrial course. He has served as star pitcher on our baseball team, but owing to some one in the cheering section he paid more attention to the sidelines than to the field. Noted for his thickness (in size). 28 LORIN BAKER JOHNSON. The news! my morning, noon, and evening cry. Day after day repeat it till 1 die. “Pink” is one of the shining lights of Miss Smith’s wonderful sixth hour Civics class. He made a splendid record on the football and basketball teams. Inci- dentally he has found time to visit North street con- tinually, for Pink is an ardent advocate of Fletcherism. Lambda Sigma. MABEL FREDERICKA JOHNSON. Silence in woman is like spe eli in man ; Deny it who can. Mabel has managed to keep quiet in school, but we have heard she has been in several affairs outside, though none were serious. She likes the movies and we expect to see her a star in them some day. Mabel showed her class spirit by serving on the Thanksgiving dance committee. Noted for her attachment for a baby carriage. EDWARD PATRICK JOYCE. The night was made for sleep. “Harp” is another Fitchburg fellow who has lost his heart, hand, and pocketbook in North Leominster. He has tried football, baseball and track and has had bad luck in all cases. We want to know if his hou.se hasn’t got any front doors. Noted for his early hours and his back door exit. Newman Club. FANNIE LOTTIE KABATCHNICK. True as the needle to the pole Or as the dial to the sun. We hear Fanny in Assembly Hall, but not too often, for she is “some” orator, especially when she reads the secretarial reports for the Literary Society. Noted for her marcel wave. 29 JOHN FRANCIS KANE. Chust a lecdle man, no big er as a doll. John is one of those who was too brilliant to wish to graduate with the preceding class, and therefore voluntarily joined ours. He is one of the baseball team, and is one of the remarkable outfielders, being in the same class as Vose. Noted for his original Mathe- matics proofs (?). Newman Club. MADELINE AGNES KEATING. Work — work — work ! My labor never flags. Madeline is one of those whose worth is obscured. She did much in raising money for this book, espe- cially along the junk line; and she also procured some advertisements. Noted for her neat appearance. HAROLD JOHN KELLY. Ill habits gather by nnseen degrees. “Slide” is one of Mr. Hunter’s specimens, known as the Lizard. He was captured in the wilds of Blake’s machine shop and is being trained by Monsieur Hun- ter. They feed him on a bottle and once a week he is allowed to go up on Whittemore street. Noted for his fluency in various languages. MARY VIRGINEA KERSHAW. She never told her love. We have let Mae mind her own affairs because she always has seemed to want to. Hard studying will never have any visible effects on her health, but she loves a good time, especially at dances. Noted for her quietness. 30 OLIVE MAY KIBLING. step by step since time began, I see the steady gain of man. Olive is one of our merry ones and has a smile that won’t come off. She is very fond of Civics and has tried to impress Miss Smith with her knowledge all the year. Olive has a good time summers, and judging from appearances, is popular with the other sex. Noted for her fondness for Civics. SIGNE BERGITTA KRANTZ. Sweet and silent is her nature. Signe is fond of a good time and likes to trip the light fantastic toe whenever she has the chance. Evelyn, Signe, and Peter are “Three Twins.” Signe has a leading part in the Senior play, and with the assistance of Holton made one of the rehearsals very inte resting. Noted for lofty airs. Funaughthea. MARIAM BLANCHE LA VALLEY. Brains she has nix Mariam hails from Cleghorn, but in spite of this we know nothing against her except that she is good- looking. Miss Smith has been trying to coax Mariam to become her assistant because she is skilled in pouring forth her knowledge to the class. RALPH KENT LAWRENCE. The laugh that denotes the empty head. “Donk” is one of our biggest and j oiliest men. We are sometimes afraid that the roof will be raised be- cause of his laugh. Incidentally we hear that he got his name because his laugh resembles a d y’s so much. He is one of our star baseball players and is especially noted for his batting. He must have an average of 60 . 31 ETHELEEN MAUDE LESURE. Who spoke no slanders — no, nor listened to it. Ethel stands among the leaders of our college pu- pils. She is very modest and has won the esteem of all her classmates. She has given several piano and vocal selections and also an exhibition dance at the Literary Club. Noted for her birdlike voice. JENNIE IRENE LESURE. Blue were her eyes as the fairy flax, Her cheeks like the dawn of day Jennie’s name should have been Happy, for we never see her without a smile. She often takes trips to the country, where we understand she has a pretty good time with Bill. J. G. T. DORIS ELIZABETH LUND. Messenger of the gods and goddesses. Gods and Goddesses ! rather complimentary to our teachers to have them deified. We suggest that Miss Lund be fed “Grape Nuts” to make her grow. Doris is right there when it comes to boys and has succeeded in making quite a hit with a Freshman. Noted for her fondness for small-sized, chubby boys. EDWARD ALBIN LUNDBERG. And when a lady’s in the case You know — all other things give place. Eddy is one of our tall men, and keeps in prac- tice by running from his house to his uncle’s farm in Lunenburg. Is there anything over there besides cab- bages, Ed? Eddie likes to attend card parties, and can dance — in his kitchen. As far as we know there is no particular girl in the case, but we think one would be appreciated, N’est-ce pas, Ed? Noted for his wit. 32 FRANK BERNARD LYNCH. My besetting sin is mischief. “Frankie” is another one of the petits. He has caused a lot of trouble for all the teachers, and came directly under Mr. Woodbury’s notice during his Junior year. He works at the Fitchburg Gas Electric Light Co. blowing out the electric lights and “gassing.” He made himself famous by his impromptu acting as an end man during the spring. Noted for his size. Newman Club. ALBERT HECTOR MAGGS. Begone, dull care, I prithee begone from me; Begone, dull care, for thou and I shall never more agree. “Spider” isn’t as quiet as he looks. When he enters a recitation room the teachers all recognize him and his silent partner, trouble, and are prepared for the worst. Noted for his noise. PERCY VICTOR MAGGS. Two minds linked in love, one cannot be delighted but the other rejoiceth. “Feet” comes from up West but claims he can walk down in five minute s. We don’t see as much of him as we would like (except his feet). He is one of our molders and just now is experimenting on making a bungalow. He claims to be Mr. Primeau’s only friend. He is noted for his partner and their Sunday meetings. GERTRUDE MARY MANNIX. Friends she has man3 ; foes? are there any? “Gert” has lost her heart and some one has found it. She divides her time between jollying the boys and going to P. M. session. Noted for wit and “wig” and her good disposition. She did fine work on the class book. J. G. T. I: 33 JEANETTE ROSE McCANN. For length and breadth, the bigness which you see. Jeanette is one of our largest members, but was very much disappointed when she heard that the relay race was open only to boys. She expects to be a prima donna some day, and when that day arrives, may we be there to hear. Noted for her cheerfulness. JOSEPH FRANCIS McDERMOTT, JR. To argue is sublime. Joe has tried to convince Miss Smith that her afternoon sessions are unjust, but has failed utterly so far. He made all the pretty decorations for the dance orders of the second Senior party. By the way, Joe is a regular farmer, and knows how to hitch a cow to a feeding post. Has a peculiar affection for Ash- burnham street. Noted for that blush. Newman Club. EDITH RACHAEL McDONALD. Mine be a cot beside the hill; A beehive’s hum shall soothe my ear. Edith is still loyal to Amherst and agricultural pur- suits. She is going to Sargent next year to fit herself, we suppose, to become the helpmate of a scientific farmer. Edith is always in great demand at dance parties and is noted for her debutante slouch. J. G. T. ETHEL MARY McGUINESS. The light that shone in her heavenly eyes. Bespoke a divinely good nature. Ethel believes in making recitations lively and has surely done her share toward that end. Her chief delight is arguing with “Pop” Edmands, trying to im- press on him that she knows how to teach “bugology” better than he does. Ethel promises to put in a good word for us when she is a secretary at the White House. Chief occupation, accounting for late excuses to Miss Brown. 34 MYRA FRANCES McGUIRK. From every blush that kindles in thy cheeks Ten thousand little loves and graces spring. There is no use trying to get ahead of Myra when it comes to lessons, because she spends all her time studying and practicing in good behavior. Some one lost his heart on her last year and she has been bashful ever since. Noted for her industriousness and her “Francais.” KATHERINE MARY McMANUS. A thing of beauty is a joy forever. “Kitty” is one of our beauties, but oh dear ! she is so bashful! We do not know who the lucky one is, but judging by her numerous sighs, there must be one. Her only fear is that Miss Smith will call on her more than once a week. Chief occupation, keeping quiet. Noted for her blush. F. F. F. MARY LOUISE McNAMARA. O woman ! in our hours of ease, Uncertain, coy, and hard to please. Louise never seemed to work very hard at her lessons, at least the teachers think so, but she did help a little on the class book funds committee. She has lost her heart to one, but we hope she will recover. Noted for her affectation and her fight against the original write-up. EVELYN MERRIAM. All the world’s a stage. Evelyn is rather quiet both inside and outside of school, but she is also full of fun. She is very much in- terested in Dartmouth, for she has lost her heart to a young Fitchburg boy who winters there. She also likes Milwaukee. We advise her to follow Miss Stratton’s rules about using finery borrowed from the French language, in her numerous compositions for the Red and Gray. Noted for her French and her Thespian ambition. Funaughthea Club. 35 PAULINE ISABEL MOORE. There was a sound if re " elr 3 ' 1) ’ niKhL. Pauline is a friend to all , but divides her particular attention between a Junior and a Normalite. Her Sun- day nights, and in fact all others, are pretty well taken up. Pauline gets angry quick but better still she g:ets over it quicker. Noted for her tight skirt. JAMES EDWARD MORIARTY. Looks are deceitful. “Jimmy” looks like a little cherub, but he can keep up with the fastest when he is outside of school. They say he is some athlete, but we’re from Missouri. He belonged to that famous team that defeated “Wallis’s Sluggers” in West Fitchburg. HAROLD JAMES MORSE. A little nonsense now and then Is relished by the best of men. “Morsy” has taken his time throughout his high school course. He won his “F” and fame by managing the football team and forgetting the lines Thanksgiv- ing day. Harold likes to go automobiling Sunday af- ternoons. Who is the lucky one, Harold? Noted for his smile. Lambda Sigma. HILDA MORSE. And such one do I remember, Whom to look at was to love. Beyond a few satellites of hers, “Totty” doesn’t notice the rest of the class. She has taken everything as it comes and has always had a good time. Her greatest exertion was thinking up a new style moon- light for the second Senior class party. We suggest a new moon or a cloudy one. Chief occupation, laugh- ing at Vose’s funny (?) remarks. Funaughthea Club. 36 ELEANOR MARIETTE NIELSON. still waters run deep. Eleanor is such a quiet little girl and has such a tendency to mind her own business that we scarcely know anything about her. Still, she seems quite lova- ble, and has a very pleasing smile. She helps “C. T. ' ’ run the fifth hour Civics class. Noted for her bright- ness. WALTER WHITE NEWCOMBE. Smiling always, with a never-failing serenity of countenance. “Smily” has only two faults, skinning his teeth and painting. He is one of our commercial boys. He has attended all of our class meetings, but has never uttered a word at one of them. Noted for his jokes in Junior Elocution class. ERIK ELLSWORTH NICKERSON. Stubbornness is the sign of a weak mind. Erik has proved to be a good basket-ball player, but lately has lost school interest in favor of a girl who hails from Notown, Bingville, or somewhere there- abouts. How often do you go there, Erik? Noted for his stubbornness. MARION AGNES O’BRIEN. Put me amongst the boys. Marion spends all her extra time practising the new steps, but it seems to agree with h er, as she always has a pleasant smile for everyone. She has a fondness for all boys, and also for the latest dances. Noted for her timely arrival at school. 37 MARION PAULINE O’DEA. Not much talk, a great, sweet silence. Although Marion comes from West Fitchburg, she has strange to say, escaped all love affairs so ar. She is headed for Normal to not the young ones. Noted for that which she is not noted for. CATHERINE ELIZABETH O’DONNELL. Smart and studious is she., Catherine does not bother much about the opposite .■ex, but still she spent her evenings last summer in Entertaining Paul on the Salem street playgrounds. She has some musical talent, but is shy about showing it Noted for her ability in Civics and the rapidity with which she reads her secretary’ s reports. RICHARD ROLAND PACKARD. Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity. Roly spends most of his time out of school m walkino- to and from the Y. M. C. A. and in driving an aufo, although he may “ " j.kin® on a W F. girl— a last year Senior at that— or taki „ her to parties. He is a hustler, as his work on he class book ads testifies. Noted for his cute i e cackle. LIDA MARY PARKER. Her time she spends in studies deep. Lida has been on the right side of the teachers ever since she commenced her career here with us. We always know where to borrow notes and no.e Zo s whL Lida is around. She is not one of our mischievous ones, but those just the same. Noted for her ability to mind her own business. 38 SHERWIN PEARCE PARKHURST. For thy sake, Tobacco, I’d do anything but die. “Shifty” is the life of the Industrial course. He might have been invited to leave us more than once if it hadn’t been for his “pull” with the “powers that be” in the Superintendent’s office. Noted for his nag- ging and his bluffing. MABEL PROCTOR. Tear-falling pity dwells not in this eye. Mabel is a great athlete, her specialty being basket- ball. She has a wonderful voice which she dins in our ears every other week at the “Hello” office. Mabel is more lively than most of us, for she has crossed the big pond several times. Noted for her wash- woman style. DAVID VELOROUS PYNE. Red as a beacon lighted on a far-off hill. “Red” is manager of the Senior relay team and h as proven a valuable assistant to the class book com- mittee in whacking the Industrial fellows. Blondee is a Mexican athlete noted for “throwing the bull.” He is another of the Leominster Silent Three. MARGARET O’CONNOR QUINLAN. A queen with swarthy cheeks and bold black eyes. Margaret carried off first honors in the prize- speaking contest Junior year. She is captivated just at present by “Bill,” one of our star baseball players of last year. “Quin” is some singer, too, and adorns the quartet of the class play. Noted for her jolly laugh. F. F. F. 39 EDWARD THOMAS QUINN. If all the years were playing holida ' S, To sport would be as tedious as to work. “Pat” is the only fellow who can enjoy life and do it right. That means he mixes one week of s chool with two weeks of vacation. He claims to be the only person here who is not afraid of Miss Whitney. Noted for his laziness. MARY ELIZABETH QUINN. Her mind is a precious jewel rare, It’s truth and beauty vicing there. Mary has always made her way in the school- room. She never has to study like most of us, de- pending always on her ready “wit.” Is some French shark. Spends a good deal of her time out walking with Sherry. MARIE BERNADINE RATCHFORD. A lassie stout, with raven locks. Marie used to spend her afternoons behind a babj carriage, because she believed that outdoor life was beneficial to the brains. She has never had much at- traction for our numerous bachelors, but has her eye on a certain young dude (we think). Noted for her black hair. JEREMIAH MARTIN REARDON. We think too little who talk much. Jerry is one of our star football players, and suc- ceeded in getting the most prominent feature in his phiz broken in the Leominster game. Jerry was also on the baseball team and became famous as a pinch hitter. He was also president of the Literary society during the latter part of the season. Favorite expres- sion, “Shut up.” Newman Club. 40 RUDOLPH EDWARD REEH. Laugh and the world laughs with you. The class without “Dutch” would be like home without a baby. He treats everything as a huge joke — even Miss Smith. As far as we know “Dutch” aspired to love only once, but this, unfortunately, was nipped in the bud. Noted for his facial expressions in using long words. AXEL REMAL. What’s in a name ? Yes, Rummy, we could overlook the name, but Baker’s station — never! Come up to North America and begin to enjoy life. We understand that Axel has a farm all of his own so soon. How we do grow up I Well, that’s better than working in a machine shop. Noted for his studiousness. RICHARD WILLIAM RICE. Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind. “Flatfoot” is our champion long-distance runner. He claims he runs from Leominster every morning, but we have our doubts. He is the guardian of Mr. Hunter’s goat and he certainly has it under good con- trol. One of his favorite acts is to shoot off tire- crackers in Mr. Hunter’s room. Noted for his bright remarks. RACHEL THERESA RILEY. Around her shone The light of love, the purity of grace. Every one that knows Rachel likes her. She is one of Mary Cushing’s model pupils, and one of those who are not familiar with Maude Whitney. Although she is not very lively during school hours, we under- stand that she certainly makes up for it during the summer. Noted for her model behavior. 41 PAUL EDWARD ROCHE. As you are old and reverend, You should be wise. “Charles” is the father of the Industrial class. He is the operator of the house’s perambulator, and has given the best of satisfaction. He is the originator of all electricity problems. He has been known to run a Lord one mile per gallon of gasoline. Good work. Keep it up. Noted for his automobile sayings. EDWARD ROGAL. A tailor’s dummy to his finger-tips. “Eddie” was thrust upon us at the beginning of our Senior year. He was fresh from “Noo Yawk” and his “Noo Yawk” manners incurred a great deal of unfriendliness toward him. However, he redeemed himself a little in football. He made himself famous by his speech before the school. Noted for his looks and his love for girls’ hair. MARIAN ELIZABETH ROWELL. Her voice is ever the same, a low monotone. Marian is so afraid of exerting her voice in reci- tations that her teachers really do not know how much she knows in her various lessons. She is quite fond of the boys, at least judging from appearances. We understand that the parlor is occupied very often. Noted for her eyes. CLARA GENEVIEVE BERNADETTE SENEY. Big brown eyes with gently drooping lids. “Bernie” only favors us with her presence every other week; the rest of her time is spent in working industriously for the G. M. Parks Co. She was one of Miss Greathead’s favorites during her Sophomore year, and has come through her high school course with “flying colors.” Noted for her pretty brown eyes. 42 MARIE AGNES SHEA. Sole comfort of my dark hair. Marie is not with us all the time, as Lowe Bros, keep her scribbling every second week, but she is so small that we would never miss her if she did not keep things lively while she is in school. She has an ex- ceedingly high head, both inside and out, and has had her marks up to the highest for four years. Noted for her size. HARRIET MYRA SHEDDON. You bunch of violets rare, You breath of summer air, You sweet geranium fair, I love you, We are not responsible for the above, it is Harriet’s favorite piece. Her fondness for violets budded Soph- omore year and ripened into full bloom last year. Harriet is some composer, as is shown by our class song. Chiefly noted for bright, good nature and broad smile. J. G. T. VELMAH CELESTA SPENCER. A mighty hunter and her prey was man. Velmah is one of our beauties and has spent most of her time ensnaring the gentlemen by her charms. We have never seen her without a beau and they have been many and varied in makeup. She and Doris are inseparable companions and are as like each other as those who truly love. Noted for her favoritism for “shoffers.” J. G. T. ZILPHA ETTA STARKEY. Then she will talk, ye gods, how she will talk ! Zilpha is some Latin shark. We tried to get a snap-shot of her peg-top skirt, but the waste baskets on the sides simply wouldn’t get into the picture. Zilpha is right there when it comes to the new styles. Noted for her ability to talk faster than anyone else. 43 DOROTHY BRADFORD STEVENS. Best things come in small packages. “Chubby” is one of our petite maidens, ljut she ' s there with the goods all right. Ralph has been her constant attendant for the greater part of two years and we expect to hear wedding hells from that direc- tion shortly. Chief occupation, canoeing with Ralph in the good old summer time. J. G. T. HELEN CLAIRE STOLBA. All the world’s a jest, I thought so once and now I know it. Helen would always like to act the way she did with Holton in the play (very romantic indeed). She is some committee worker, and has served on several of them. We might see her an actress some day, as she has great skill in that line, but we think a course in domestic science would be more suitable. Chief occupation, receiving and answering letters from Wor- cester Academy. F. F. F. ANNA LORETTA SULLIVAN. Full many a flower was born to blush unseen. Loretta believed that a child should be seen and not heard until recently, when she acquired a rather exalted opinion of herself and has since made herself known. She is one of that celebrated Spanish class, but we don’t know whether she has helped to make it so or not. Noted for her cute looks. JOHN BENJAMIN SUOMALA. A man of unbounded “stummik.” Benny has adorned the class for four years, but takes too much interest in a private institution at 131 street. Noted for his love of “Campbell’s” soup. 44 MARGARET IRENE TAYLOR. There’s nothing half so sweet in life as love’s young dream. Margaret is one of our smart ones who has never made any disturbance in F. H. S. to speak of. She is some shark when it comes to French and spends her extra time drawing trade in one of our leading dry goods stores. We always know where to find her at recess, as she has been in the same place with the same young gentleman all year. Noted for her studious nature. CHESTER EVERETT TUCKER. He needs no verse to fame him, His merit true doth name him. “Chet” is one of our energetic members and one of our best scholars. As editor-in-chief of the class book he deserves much credit for its successful management, and we hope West Fitchburg has some more like him (minus the girl habit). Noted for his inconstancy to the girl(s). HAROLD HENRY TUCKER. We care for measures more than men. “Fat” never lets anything bother him, not even girls. He is in our Industrial course and intends to continue this work or go to cooking school. It was a tight squeeze (a thing to which “Fat” is not accus- tomed) to get on to one step only, in the class group pictures. Noted for his love (?) for the ladies. ALPHONSUS FREDERICK VAILLANT. The man that blushes is not quite a brute. In Alphonsus is unseen ability. He can draw and speak and bluff when necessary. Unfortunately he has only developed the last quality during his school year. He works afternoons at the Sentinel office, showing the editors how to print the paper. Noted for his classy dress. Newman Club. 45 ALLIENE VINCELLETTE. My man’s as true as steel. The above quotation must be true, for he goes nearly home with her every day even in the deepest snowstorm. Introduce us, Alliene. She is one of our Commercialites and works every other week. She be- lieves sincerely that “silence is golden.” Noted for her “hair-do.” WILLIAM CECIL VOSE. God made him ; therefore let him pass as a man. Cecil has been more or less interested (mostly less) in football, basket-ball, baseball, track and Red and Gray. Noted for his supposed popularity with the girls. Lambda Sigma. BEATRICE RAYMOND WALKER. Men may come and men may go. But I talk on forever. “Bea” is some actress, but we’ll forgive her for that. Her “Ow, please don’t,” is the latest hit in slang. “Bea” is right there with the boys and knows how to have a good time. She is headed for Normal but we don’t think she’ll join the O. M’s. Noted for her continuous stream of chitter-chatter. GLADYS EXARISSA WALKER. Quiet she was, forsooth, not vain; If friends be credit, she has much gain. Unlike most of us, all Gladys’ love affairs were in her Freshman and Sophomore years. Perhaps that accounts for her good work these last two years. She works down at Simonds’ office every other week, and on alternate weeks studies industriously. Noted for her bell-like laugh. 46 LAWRENCE BERGMANN WALLIS. I am Sir Oracle, and when I ope my mouth let no dog bark. Lawrence would rather spend his time entertaining the girls than going out for athletics, but probably it is just as well. He made his mark this year as editor of the Red and Gray and has been resting on those laurels ever since. We expect to see Lawrence starring in vaudeville some day with Beryl as leading lady. xMoted for his classy socks. MARGARET ELIZABETH WALSH. The world belongs to the energetic. “Peggy” is some baseball player. In fact, we won- der why Lake hasn’t discovered her before this. She had a strange liking for the southern portion of the city until recently. Just a fleeting fancy, we judge. Chief occupation, making fudge — and eating it. F. F. F. PHILIP FAIRBANKS WATERHOUSE. You look wise — pray correct that error. Phil, like most of us Seniors, has made several changes in love, but it looks now as though his heart was in W. F. at present. He was never known to hurry, although he won his “F” in basket-ball. He served on the second class party. Chief occupation, sleeping. PERCY COLBY WELLINGTON. A hook and a line is all I crave. “Percy” looks to be one of our laziest classmates, but looks are deceitful, especially in this case. He is one of those who walked to Monadnock during oui last vacation. He believes in Hoopering up morning, noon, and night. Chief occupation, fishing. Zeta Phi. 47 CHARLES AL15ERT WHITCOMB. These mortal wits to call him “ Butsy ” a ree ; The gods have other names for him than we. We do not know whether “Butsy” got his name from the lirand of cigars or cigarettes he smokes. He attends every movie and still has time to draw a little. Butsy’s favorite occupation is standing on the street corners and watching the girls pass. Noted for his giggle. ELLA ANNIS WILDER. ’Tis the mind that makes the bodj rich. Ella has an extremely excitable nature, as the second hour math class will testify. She reached the highest pinnacle of fame when she recited “I need thee every hour” in her elocution class. She looks very sober and demure but she can be jolly and jollier than most of us. Chief occupation, studying Latin. DOROTHY GERTRUDE WILSON. Breezy and jolly is she always. “Silver” is one of our lively members. We un- derstand there is a strong attraction for her in the direction of Cornell and that may explain why she spends her time reading the Cornell Daily Sun. She is right there with the new dances and is headed for Sargent. Chief occupation, studying (?). Funaugh- thea Club. LLOYD ABBOTT WINSLOW. A Hon among ladies is a most dreadful thing. The Mexican is another of the Fitchburgians who make flying trips to Leominster. Irene says he is all right. He is the fastest talker in school. He intends to own a travelling circus. He already has a bearded lady and a tame frog. Noted for his talk and his circus. 48 IDA FLORA WINTHROP. Curly locks, curly locks, wilt thou be mine ? -- Ida is not seen very often in places of amusement, as she is always busy with “something else.” She usually studies hard, and believes recess is not a time for recreation. Noted for her pretty hair. ARNOLD HOWE WOODS. stay more upon your dear old farm. There ' s danger in the city. “Woodsie” hails from “Luningham.” Spent most of his time getting “100” in his Trig, exams., and had troubles from another source, as he was collector of class dues in Room 26. He’s headed for W. P. 1. and next year is going to show the Profs there the work- ings of the fourth dimension. He failed to convince Mr. Harding that his logic was correct. Noted for the green bag. RICHARD MORTON WOODWARD. For fools rush in where angels fear to tread. Dick’s chief worry for the last month has not been girls (as he dropped her long ago) liut the slight (?) danger of flunking. His chief occupation has been pestering Noahie. We pity Noah. For all his foolish- ness he can hustle when he wants to. Noted for his fickleness. Lambda Sigma. MARTHA ELLEN WOOLACOTT. How blithely she rides to the hunting of men. It goes without saying that Martha, coming as she does from West Fitchburg, is good-looking. She fin- ished her course before her Senior year. We heard several reports about Martha being engaged. How about it, Martha? Noted for her good looks. 49 JOSEPH G. EDGERLY. ' I ' HIS year, the class of 1914 is especially honored by having in its class book an excellent picture of Mr. Joseph G. Edgerly, oiir beloved superintendent of schools. Also, in another way, we realize that onr class is unusually fa- vored, for the diplomas which we are to receive next week at gradua- tion will be signed by Mr. Edgerly, and although many other classes in years gone by have had the same honor conferred on them, our class is the last to receive such distinction from him. During the past thirty-nine years, Mr. Edgerly has been the most welcome and cordially received visitor in every room of the city’s public schools. His speeches and his ever-ready jokes are among the happiest school memories of those boys and girls now pupils, and those who are men and women grown. Indeed, there has hardly been a public festive occasion in this city which Mr. Edgerly has not graced, nor a formal gathering over which he has not presided. As to the advancement of our educational sys- tem under his wise care it is impossible to speak enough in praise of it. Every citizen of Eitchburg owes to him his heartfelt gratitude and deepest thanks for the long years of faithful service by which this city has become famous for its school system throughout the country. So, the class of 1914 acknowledges with deep feeling its appre- ciation of having in this publication the picture of a man widely known throughout the United States, the superintendent of the public schools here for thirty-nine years, and the best beloved citizen of Eitchburg, Mr. Joseph G. Edgerly. 51 CLASS SONG. O Alma Mater, O thou dear Protectress of our band, Receive the tribute of our hearts. That parting thoughts command. Chorus : Led by thy virtue and renown. To deeper loyalty, Shall “ 14” strive thy name to crown. And ever honor thee. Forever shall the green and gold For thee new love awake. And time perpetuate the vows Of steadfast faith we make.

Had his fortune mapped out, once and for all. First then, down Main Street, let ns go, And drop into a “Movie” show. Above whose flaring door we see The names of Vaillant and Albee. Lynch takes onr tickets and bids ns enter; Misses Coughlin and Corliss give ns seats in the centre. “Fat” Blakely performs at the squeaky piano. While Bngbee assists with a booming big ' cello. We gaze at the screen and wait in glee. For each classmate’s future life to see. First we behold onr President great Enter the White House, the chief of State ; And now Miss Fitzgibbon a millionaire ' s wife. In gay Paree spends most of her life. Then we see Edith Joel with book and pen, The pride of the class, as she always has been. And we find, as the billboards of Fitchburg ha ’e shown. Beat Walker in comedy widely is known. Miss Griffin is seen with a pen in her hand. The most-famed authoress in all the land ; While Elizabeth Clark, with her usual fire. Is dashing ofif odes on snbjects dire. Then comes tiny Hilda in Kay’s fond embrace. While Marie cries dramatically, “VTrmont is the place!” Misses Moore and Bray now are teachers, we see.

While Miss Condon, alas, still sticks to the mop. ffhen we hear Mabel Johnson and her namesake Arthur sing. As the picture shows Done Lawrence in a pugilist’s ring. Then we see far off, in the wild and wooly West, Emil, and friend Johnson, who like cowboys now are dressed. Next Jenna, a juggler, with his very dexterous wrist, Entertains us with tricks, the best one could wish. Now wedding bells ring and Miss Woolacott is seen. And they show Loretta Sullivan an artist, on the screen. Helen Stolba is famed as an elocutionist, Jerry Reardon, a policeman, “jest does his best.” In the senate W’alter Anderson, with his usual force. Declaims on “W ' Mnian’s Rights” till he talks himself hoarse. Percy and his true love are old married people, Doris and Pink head towards a church steeple. “Fat” Holden, a chauffeur, comes whistling a tune As Evelyn and Rogal stroll under the moon. The Fines, Sam and Jenny, are some players, you bet. While Helen Douai is someone’s little pet. Ruth Anderson, an artist, on the screen next is found, Signe Krantz ’cross the footlights is far, far renowned. Percy Maggs and Bernice are hitched together tight. And Maggsy the second is a machinist all right. The Misses Seney and Burgess have a manicure shop. While Edith and Amy teach the tango-hop. And now, as the pictures a few moments pause, Miss Gilchrist a tune from her violin draws. Then, after an encore, the pictures move on. And we see Dot Emory, famed for her song. McDermott and Kane to crowds lecture on “Man,” While friend Docekal now plays in the Fitchburg band. Misses Shea and Ratchford are clerks in a store, Mary Quinn, a French governess, reads “Francais,” o’er and o Dick Rice and Eddie Quinn, with quick, brisk tread, To task daily bend, to earn their bread. Then is pictured Miss McGnirk in a cute bungalow, While Miss Conlon, a stenogTa])her, is hustling for dough. Miss O’Donnell and Miss Parker are dressmakers swell, While Margaret Walsh, a bookkeeper, at her work does well. Miss Draheim at last is a teacher of German, And Kelly, a minister, is preaching a sermon. Miss Dexter to Warwick doth go every year. To see Guy, her boy friend, so near and so dear. Misses Kibling and McManus, with a very fierce look. Are burrowing still in a big Civics book. Roland Packard, we see, is married at last. But to which of the many we dare not ask. Then “Reddy” Pyne and Woodsey urge people to buy A special preparation called Anti-Red Hair Dye. Aliene Vincellette, the soubrette of the land. Comes out and performs to the tune of a band. Rose Gampert is still friend C. T.A secretary. And Dick Holton, surrounded by maidens, is merry. John Horgan, a student, is buried in books. And “Chet” Tucker at Ruth steals long, loving looks. In an office Miss Walker and Adams are seen. And Morse has become a business man keen. Misses Barnicle and Caswell are typewriting teachers.

Charlie Whitcomb, an artist, with hlorence is happy. And Ncwcombe, as a sailor, in his suit of blue looks natty, TTarold Davis Louise ] Iac is coyly wooing and winning, Addle Ethleen Lesure in Grand Opera is singing. And here comes Dick Woodward, all wreathed with jolly smiles. With a crush on every girl within a thousand miles. Miss Harriet Sheddon, so the next pictures say. Goes to the “movies” just twice every day. Fogarty is famous in the game of basket-ball. And he smiles upon the lassies who crowd about the hall. And now! there goes a buggy, up a winding hill. And in it is our Jennie a-drivin’ with her Bill. Misses Finn and Nelson still do work at AMolworth’s five and ten, And Dot Wilson, with her breezy air, continues to catch men. Miss Galdow next is seen, behind a limping sorrel. On her way to the meeting-house where she speaks on “Moral.” Messrs. Lundberg and Fairbanks keep bachelor’s hall. While “Dutch” Reeh has picked out for himself a cute “doll.” And James Moriarty, a world-player slick. Is renowned to all peoples for his wonderful kick. Intermission now stops the pictures awhile. And some vaudeville acts are put on for trial. Howarth and Opal do a song and dance stunt. That drew from the onlookers a nerve-racking grunt. Then pictures, again, intermission being o’er. And each film as it comes pleases us more. Miss Starkey the editor of a style-book we see. And our actor renowned is Robert Hadley. In numbers there’s safety, Waterhouse believes yet, For he’s pictured with all the nice girls he can get. Miss Quinlan a reader appears on the screen, And a mechanic skilful is friend Merrill Greene. Next Lawrence Wallis in robes of state, Before us passes, an advocate. IMargaret Taylor and Fenno still courting we see, While Parkhurst and Rachel are as gay as can be. Nickerson is a soldier boy down in Mexico, And Paul Roche is there with him, fighting ’gainst the foe. Jeanette McCann and Gladys Ifeer are stay-at-home lassies, While Winslow, last, and Suomala teach manual-training classes. Then fades the final picture from off the movie screen. And thus the happy future of each classmate has been seen ; And though many a class will follow, with its lads and lassies keen. There will never be a class so noted as nineteen fourteen. 67 MORAL VALUE OF ATHLETICS. TO PLAY GAME FAIRLY IS LESSON TO BOYS. Sports affords an outlet for superfluous physical energy, and for the spirit of rivalry and competition inherent in mankind. They are also the best expression of the democratic spirit in school life, since in this held the one requirement is ability to make good. We may put evil into good things by the way we use them. Sports, in schools, are what the players make them. Behind the players is the standard of the institution. This is established by the faculty. Athletics may be, and should be the ex- pression of the spirit of the school. What does the particular insti- tution stand for? This is shown in the way victory is won or defeat endured. If the demand is that a team must play the game with all that is in each man in the way of energy and resourcefulness, but play it fairly without resort to ‘‘dirty” methods or secret violation of rules, sports would develop both manhood and morality. A young man trained to believe that a game won dishonestly is no victory, but disgrace, will take his ideas of honor and fair play into his future life. The spirit so much to be deplored in our life today may be at- tributed to the standards set by the determination to win, fairly if possible, unfairly if needs be. SUCH SPIRIT MAKES LIFE IMPRESS. Absorb the spirit of the institution, and this spirit is molded by the teachers until it becomes a tradition just as the standards — the tradition of Annapolis and West Point make conditions so uncom- fortable for the liar, the coward, and the dishonorable that he is glad to leave. Just so the athletic field, with the faculty behind it, might incul- cate the disposition to play the game of life with all the initiative, courage and resourcefulness of the individual, and yet play it honestly and honorably. 70 WINNERS OF THE F, 1913 - 14 .

The team was composed of men filled with a great fighting spirit. They were never beaten until the last whistle blew. They won seven out of their thirteen games and tied one. On the average there were between twenty and twenty-one men out to every practice. At the beginning of the year Mr. Drury, president of the Alumni Association, offered the school a cup if its team should beat Leomin- ster on Thanksgiving Day. With the cup to work for and a desire for vengeance the men went out to try for the team. Throughout the season they showed a different spirit on the field and worked their hardest. When Thanksgiving Day came the men were in the pink of condition, ready to beat Leominster at any cost. The result was, as we all know, a 13 to 0 score. The victory over Leominster and the team’s success is due more to Mr. Amiott than to any other individual. Mr. Amiott has a way of making the fellows work for him both on and off the field. Of the eleven first string men, seven are Seniors ; Captain Des- mond, Vose, Johnson, Holton, Howarth, Rogal, and Porter. Of the substitutes five are Seniors. Twenty-one men made their letters this year. The captain of the next year’s team is to be Laurie Hannula of the class of 1915, who played center on this year’s team. 73 THE SCHEDULE. Date. Place.

We heartily hope that he will continue this good work, and that the lower classes will appreciate it as we have and do. In this place it seems well to say a little about Mr. Amiott of the class of 1911, who has been onr coach for the past year. The fact that so many championships have been won is not because Mr. Amiott knows more than the coaches of the other schools, but l)e- cause he has been one of the fellows and worked with them both on the field and ofif, teaching them that little or that much that he knew until they knew it as well as he. And so, we as Seniors demand that you lower classmen shall go out and work hard next year and bring home as many laurels to dear old F. H. S. as the valiant class of 1914 has in this past year. The past season has been a good one along all lines of sport in the school. Games have been won and games have been lost; there’s a reason. Team play won, individual play lost. Let us all put our shoulder to the wheel and win for the school along the lines of effort it puts forth in its work for us. Let all be satisfied to have clean sport for sport’s sake. One team will win, the other lose. Play fair, play your very best — if you win, all right; if you lose, all right. You’ve had your fun. BE A GOOD SPORT. 75 BASKET-BALL TEAM. BASKET-BALL. ' I M 1 E basket-ball team this year was excellent and by its fine play- mg counterbalanced last year’s poor team. This team won ten games out of thirteen. Seven fellows, Captain Fogarty, Johnson, W ' aterhonse, Parkhnrst, Vose, Fish, and Kelley made their letters. ()f these men fixe are Seniors, ddie team especially deserves credit, since none of its members exce])t Captain Fogarty had ever played on the first team liefore. The high school won the championship of the league, being beaten only once. This made the second champion- shi]) in 1914. THE SCHEDULE. Date. Place. Opponents. F. H. S. Dec. 25 Fitchburg F. 11.

BASEBALL. T T is rather unsatisfactory to write about the baseball team and its schedule at present because the issue of the championship is still in doubt. Fitchburg has won two games and lost one in the league series. Gardn er has won three. On June 12, Fitchl)urg plays Gard- ner. If Fitchburg wins the team will be tied for first. As to the other games a look at the schedule would say a poor team. This is not true however, for Fitchburg has played good ball. The team has un- fortunately made errors at critical moments turning victory into de- feat. As to the fellows themselves they have worked hard, showing that same spirit which has already won three championships. THE SCHEDULE. Date. Place. Games. 0pp. F. H. S.

The meet was divided into two classes, Senior and Junior. In the Senior events Fitchburg succeeded in winning 70 points, while Leominster and Gardner divided the remaining 47. Of the thirteen events Fitchburg won nine first places. In the Junior events only Fitchburg and Leominster competed. Fitchburg won 34 points to 10 for Leominster. Of the five events in this class Fitchburg won four firsts. Captain Ligom was the highest point-winner of the meet, bringing home three firsts, one second and one third, for a total of 19 points. A noticeable feature of the meet was the fine team spirit the fellows showed. Several men gave up winning first places for them- selves to allow some others on the team who were not so good to win their letters. This spirit, as well as the fact that F. II. vS. won the meet, made everyone doubly proud of the team. SENIOR EVENTS. 100 yards dash. Ligom, Fitchburg. Champney, Fitchburg. Leamy, Leominster. Kielty, Fitchburg Joyce, Fitchburg.

Don’t study; you come to school to play. Don’t be on time; it isn’t stylish any more. " Falk every minute; that’s what your tongues are for. Never give your teachers information ; they’re su])posed to give it to you. If Woodbury calls you to the office, don’t go. It’s a waste of time. Never ])ay your athletic dues ; let the other fellow do it. Whistle when passing through the halls; C. T. likes music. Get all the afternoon session blanks you can ; they will admit you to an afternoon entertainment. Skip school whenever you can ; nobody will miss you. Carve your initials on your desk-cover; it will be easier to find your seat. Throw your pencil sharpeniiigs on the floor ; they give it a finish. Never come to school when there’s going to be an exam. When there’s a fire-drill, jump out of the window; it’s the quickest way out. If you want books from the library, help yourself ; don’t trouble Miss Sherwin. If you want more paper, take it from somebody’s desk. Run a bill at the lunch counter, then forget to pay ; nobody else will remember. Scrape your feet when going into the assembly hall ; Woodbury likes it, and it gives a melody to the orchestra. Don’t carry home a load of books ; just extract the pages you need. Draw caricatures of your teachers on the blackboards ; they like to see themselves as others see them. When the lessons and tasks are all ended, And the school for the day is dismissed. And the Freshmen gather around me To bid me “Good-night,” and be kissed, How I wish the same lovable spirit The whole of the school would imbue; And the big girls would gather around me And do as the little girls do. By Prof. Edmands. The way Miss Starkey’s scanning of Virgil sounded to Mr. Leigh- ton — “Deedle dee, deedle dee, deedle dee do !” 110 WOULDN’T IT BE FUNNY. If Mary Cushing grew slim. If Desmond knew his lessons. If Elizabeth used a word made up of less than ten letters. If Irene Beer lost her giggle. If Miss Cowles told her age. If Woods forgot his little green bag. If Jeanette McCann ran a hurdle race. If Georgina Caldow smiled. If C. T. cracked a real good joke. If Harold Davis gave a speech. If Miss Gifford suddenly became Miss Smith’s size. If Marguerite Griffin noticed Dineen. If the Misses Stevens and McGuinness were on time. If Morgan should attempt to sing, ‘‘Cuddle up a little bit closer.’’ If Miss Smith forgot to tell the kiddies her pedigree. If the assembly hall clock told the right time. If Whitney lost her job. If Miss Starkey took a medium-sized step. If Fogarty and Desmond were not seen on Main street in the after- noon. If Miss Porter forgot to wear her hair-ribbon. If Henry Donlon fell in love. If Vose lost his opinion of himself. If Misses Shea and Hartwell forgot to hang around 26 at recess. Holden had a piece of gum, He chewed it night and day, And everywhere that “Fat” did go, The gum was there to stay. It followed him to school one day, Which was against the rule; Alas! Amiott took it away from him. And chewed it after school. C. T. — “Well, Mr. Howarth, have you any good excuse for l)eing late ?” Howarth — “Yes sir.” C. T.— “What is it?” Howarth— “Waffles.” Ill DAFFYDILS. If an Admiral is a high position, is the rank of Major Lowe? If she happened to look into an empty coal bin, would Irene C. Cowles? If Fish is solid mahogany, is “Reddy” solid Pyne? If Fogarty and Downes had a boxing match, would Fogarty win on Downes? If Miriam Gilchrest can bully, can Mary Kershaw? W hat, pray, has Jerry Riordan this year? If josie is more than twenty-one years old, is she still a Minor? If Alice lost her brains, would we still call her Greathead? If lulith Joel is never late, is Flarriet Sheddon time? Because we can’t fool her, is Mary Ethel Greene? If the boat with Dick Holton aboard sunk, where would Amy Holland? dA take care of the “wheats” in school, do we need a Miller? If you saw Ruth out walking with a fellow, would you say, “There goes Ruth Anderson?” If Florence McCarty is out, is Marguerite Griffin? If Jenny Lesure is nice, is Jenny Fine? With Cupid in the boat, can Marian Rowell? If there are stone and wooden houses, and even mud houses, can there be a Waterhouse? In twenty years who knows what will Bugbee? If Fred Ryan owes $10 to Amiott, what does Arthur Primeau? If water is heavy, is Ayer light? Coffin will be the end of us all. What has Anna Dunn for the high school? If a window in room 35 got br oken, would Nora Foote the bill? If Waterhouse worked, would Vera Lacy? If Miss O’Donnell is in wrong with her teachers, is Helen Enwright? If he and Elsie went boating, would “Mit” Fish? If Daniels, does Helen Stolba and “Kitty” Bray? If Margaret got lost, would Fenno? If Francis Sullivan and he went boating, would Joe Perault? If Marguerite is polite, is Gertrude? If Miss Brown should whistle, would Whitcomb? If Lorin has red hair, has Dorothy White? 112 SHORT STORIES. Class party, Latin lesson, Sporty Senior, P.

It’s bothered me a great deal lately, but after this I shall put no more faith in it.” Mr. Leighton — “It’s not faith you want in it, it’s works.” Miss Smith — “In what mint is money coined?” McDermott — “Spearmint.” Mr. Edmands — “O’Hara, what are you talking for?” O’Hara — “I was just asking him a question about botany.” Mr. Edmands — “Well, who should you ask?” O’Hara — “Somebody I thought knew it.” Breathes there a dunce with head of lead. Who never to himself hath said. As unprepared he went to class, “If I bluff real well, I bet I’ll pass.” Miss Cowles — “What is the idiom for ‘on his knees?’ Well, Mr. Wallis, you ought to know that.” Packard — -“I was out motoring the other day and I came to a river, but could not get my machine across.” Miss Kibling — “Really! what did you do?” Packard — “Oh, I sat down and thought it over.” Miss Smith in Civics — “Johnson, what is a jury?” Johnson — “A body of men organized to find out who has the best lawyer.” 113 Porter, in mass meeting — “Now all together! Nine ’rahs with three teams hitehed on the end of them!” Miss Johnson ’14 — “Just see how those football players are cov- ered with mud. ITow ever do they get it off?” Miss Anderson ’14 — “What do you suppose the scrul) teams are lor ?” The young man led for a heart, The maid for a diamond played; The old man came down with a club, And the sexton used a spade. Miss Greathead — “Have you ‘Sense and Sensibility’?” Student— “Yes.” Miss Greathead — “Take it to Miss Sherwin ; she needs it.” Senior, giving definition of a “motorcycle” — “A motorcycle is an ordinary bicycle driven by an overindulgence in gasolene.” Miss Gifford to Junior — “You are not fit for decent company; come up here with me.” IMary Cushing — “What prominent man in Massachusetts wrote an article on the laxity of the laws?” Stevenson — “Harry K. Thaw.” Miss Sherwin, who is our librarian, In the library rules supreme, But never could a disciplinarian Make that room such a sweatshop seem. Miss Griffin, during French exam — “Say, Louise, is love mascu- line or feminine?” (Supposed to be a stage whisper, but Miss Cowles heard it.) “It may be both, girlie.” After a dance Lawrence W. and Beryl H. came out of Wallace l.milding, and seeing that all the cabs and autos were engaged except one small one, Lawrence said, “Come on. Beryl ; we can manage to squeeze in here, can’t we?” Mr. Holton was announcing a meeting of the class party com- mittee, and seeing Helen Stolba pass him and not having time to form a good sentence in his mind, he said : “Miss Stolba, may I after school hold you for a few minutes?” 114 Overheard in corridoor : Florence: “No Bob, that’s not enough money at all.” Bob Cashman : “Well, that’s all I’ve got now, but if you’d just as soon wait, I’ll give you all the cash I’ve got to my name, some day.” They told Bert not to hurry, Nor sit up late and cram, Nor feel a sense of worry In writing his exam. And so Bert didn’t hurry. Nor sit up late and cram. Nor feel a sense of worry; And — he flunked in his exam. The English class were discussing pronouns. First pupil : “Three men stood on a railroad platform waiting for the train. The first said, ‘Here she comes.’ The second said, ‘Here he comes.’ The third said, ‘Here it comes.’ Which was right?” Second pupil : “Why, the first or third.” First pupil: “Neither, the second.” Second pupil : “Why?” First pupil : “It was a ‘mail’ train.” Miss Greene, to Seniors in English — “Yes, I’ve been in the room where Shakespeare was born ; in fact, practically every famous person in the world has.” Vose holding up faked injured finger — “I can’t write very well, Mr. Leighton.” Mr. Leighton: “I learned that long ago.” George Daniels had a fine beard. And said, “It is just as I feared! Two owls and a hen. Four larks and a wren. Have all built their nests in my beard !” Fogarty to Rogal, as two girls pass through the hall — “Gee! those girls are as much alike as two peas in a pod.” Hogal — “Haw ! but, me deah fellow, I say, don’t ye know, there’s only one ‘P’ in pod, ye know.” Mr. McNamara — “What are the two extremes in temperature?” Tucker — “Rooms 23 and 37.” 115 “W hat is the shape of the earth?” asked the teacher, calling sud- denly upon McDermott. McDermott — “Round.” “How do you know it’s round?” “All right,” said Joe, “it’s square, then. I don’t want to start any argument about it.” As “Butsy” smoked his Havana, He stepped on a bit of banana; Came down in the mud With a dull, sickening thud. While the band played, “The Star Spangled Banner.” Edmands in Biology — “Name some allies of the grasshopper. Miss Griffin.” M. Griffin— “Cricket.” Edmands — “Right. Another, O’Hara !” O’Hara— “Tennis.” Edmands — “No! Desmond, can you?” Desmond — “Sure, De Wolf Hopper.” Mr. Leighton — “No one has a grammar, have they?” Miss Clark — “I have.” Mr. Leighton — “Well, practically no one.” “Young man,” said his father, “this report of yours is very un- satisfactory. I don’t like it.” Dacey — “I told my teachers I didn’t think you would, but they were too contrary to change it.” Csesar is dead and buried. And so is Cicero; And where those two old gents have gone, I wish their works would go. Miss Pelky — “That drug clerk has a nerve!” Her friend — “What’s up now?” Miss Pelky — “I asked him for some kind of hair tonic, and he gave me ‘Rough on Rats.’ ” Miss Sherwin — “Miss Lund, did you give the goldfish fresh water this morning?” Miss Lund — “No, they have not drunk all that I gave them last week.” 116 Dick was struggling through the story in English. “No, said the Captain,” he read, “It was not a sloop. It was a larger vessel. By the rig I judged her to be a-a-a-a-.” The word was new to him. “Barque,” said the teacher. Still Dick hesitated. “Barque!” repeated the teacher. Dick looked as though he had not heard right. Then with an apprehensive glance around the class, he shouted, “Bow-wow!” Miss Clark held a place in the choir; Her voice, it rose hoir and hoir. At last one fine noight, It rose out of soight, And was found next day on the spoire. The Misses Sullivan and O’Dea boarded the crowded 1.30 car and were obliged to stand. Miss Sullivan, to steady herself, took hold of what she supposed was her friend’s hand. They had stood thus for some time, when on looking down she discovered that she was holding “Fat” Dineen’s hand. Greatly embarassed, she exclaimed, “Oh, I’ve got the wrong hand.” Whereupon “Fat,” with his usual friendly smile stretched forth his other hand, saying, “Here’s the other one, Loretta.” Heard in assembly hall Tuesday (singing day) — First Soprano — “Do you like Desmond?” Second Soprano — “No, I think he’s a bass Senior!” Amiott had a little goat. It was just as bold as brass; And every time he let it out It followed the Senior class. English teacher — “Miss Morse, you should pronounce your A’s more accurately. When you say ‘candle,’ it sounds like ‘cendle.’ ” (We wonder why). Miss Gififord — “Can you tell me Nero’s greatest crime?” Carolyn Dexter — “Playing the fiddle.” Heard in Latin : Mr. Leighton — “Where was Juno’s temple?” Miss Houghton — “On the side of her forehead, of course.” 117 1914 PUBLICATIONS. “Memories of a Missionary” “Love Letters” “Weigh What You Should” “How to Grow Long Hair” “Use and Abuse of Memory” . “Paying Propositions” “The Master’s Violin” “Jewels and Their Care” . “Revised Dictionary” .... “An Old-Fashioned Girl” . “A Devoted Couple” .... “Dady Longlegs” .... “The Silent (?)

Elizabeth Clark Leslie Hooper (Sussanna) McCanne Cecil Vose Robert Miller Carolyn Dexter Doris Fletcher Everett Howarth Rudolph Reeh Zilpha Starkey Chester Tucker Lawrence Wallis Beatrice Walker Arnold Wods Gertrude Mannix Edward Rogal Harold Tucker James McNamara Helen Stolba Velmah Spencer Dorothy Stevens I met a youth with gloomy mien — ’T was Percy, Oh ! so lank and lean. “Hello! what’s up?” I asked the lad, “Why thus so lachrymose and sad?” “Alack,” he wailed, “alack, alack!” Again I met the youth, and lo ! His face with joy was all aglow. In answer to my blank dismay. He cried, “’Tis not a lack today. Kind sir; it is a lass! a lass!” The dark-eyed maid was choosing a hammock. “That is a pretty one,” said she to the salesman. “Yes,” he replied, “it will hold two, but it will be a tight squeeze.” “Well, that is just the kind I want. Please send it to 149 Water street,” and covered with blushes she left the store. 118 To Holton : Here’s to the one that likes the girls, Whether their hair be straight or in curls; On the side of his head he wears his hat, Just like a circus acrobat Mr. Edmands — “What is the highest form of animal life?” Miss Kershaw — “The giraffe.” Rogal was born a minister’s son. But to wild thoughts his mind did run; Some of the things he’s done at school Have been outside the Golden Rule. Miss Stratton — “Has anyone a suggestion about our debating?” Senior — “I suggest that we don’t have it.” Mr. Burrage — “I found the ‘Not to be used except in case of fire’ ])iacard, that those boys stole from the corridor.” C. T. Woodbury— “Where?” Mr. Burrage — “They nailed it over the coal bin.” There was once a young lady named Ella, Whose favorite cream was vanilla. But sad to relate. Though you piled up her plate, ’Twas impossible ever to fill her. Miss Brown, taking attendance — “Miss M x, I haven’t your name down for this period.” Miss M X — “I’m here.” (So we were aware). Ryan, relating story in English — “There was an old maid in Cranford ; she had a cow whom she loved as well as any of her daughters.” It was a cold and win’try night, Desmond stood in the street; His innocent eyes were filled with tears. His boots were filled with feet. Miss Greene, to English class studying “Oliver Twist” — “What caused the hollow sound when Mrs. Bumble hit her husband?” Miss Adams — “Why, er, she hit him on the head.” Mr. Edmands — “Desmond, what do flowers live on?” Desmond, dreamily — “Oh, they live on-er-animals.” 119 Hilda Morse Ella Wilder Helen Douai Rose Gampert Evelyn MErriam CaTlierine Bray Marie Shea Edward LnndburG Harold Dav|s George DAn iels MiltoN Fish DoroThy Emory Zilpha Starkey Baker Johnson Hilda MoRse Leslie Hooper Doris Fletcher Dorothy StEvens Helen Stolba Hazel Fijzgibbon P|ne Gerjrnde Man nix Marie Shea Ruth Anderson DowNes Woods DeSmond Porter HQlton Rogal FogarTy VoSe RoGal TnckeR WoQdward Wellington DesMond WalliS George Daniels VelmAh Spencer Carol Yn Dexter Dorothy Stevens Richard Holton Dorothy Emory Amy Holland Margaret Blakely Edith Joel PlaRriet Sheddon CheSter Tucker 120 □iiiiriiiiiiiiiHiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig The Board wish to extend their thanks to those who as- sisted in raising money for our book, to all those who furnished ideas, and to all those who contributed in any way to the suc- cess of this book ; especially Mr. Woodbury, Dr. Clark, Mr, Drury, Mr. W.
