Her ways are ways of pleasantness And all her paths are peace. Lucia is our noted elocutionist; and of her abilities we are well convinced.

She spends most of her time travelling around with a post graduate. Noted for her talent. THERESA AGNES WALSH. None knew her but to love her, None named her but to praise.

() set forth the deeds of a class so memorable as that ol 1915 seems a task indescribable. We shall, however, make note of a few of the important happenings of these, our four most wond ' erful years. In September, 1911, after the regular preliminaries, we entered F. H. S. as Freshmen. Although we had the usual limited amount of knowledge when we entered, how soon we did become accustomed to the ways of the grown-ups! Commencing at full speed, we studied our lessons faithfully and obtained the best of marks, endeavoring to show our teachers how much knowledge we could store up and display. On Class Day, we carried off the honors by our wonderful display and appearance. As a beginning along athletic lines, we won the Interclass Basket Ball Championship. Among many other duties, a great number of us regularly attended the matinee held daily in Room 23 at the High School Building. In our Senior year, however, so far advanced, were we, and so well had we profited by it, that Mr. Woodbury decided to make the experiment of abandoning the entertainment with our class. Many of our teachers were wroth; but we heartily supported Mr. Woodbury’s decision, feeling that his judgment shown was excellent. During our second year, we continued at the same rate, fast winning renown. This year, we supplied members for the orchestra, who have stayed with us until the end. This year we also won both indoor and outdoor track meets. With the beginning of our Junior year, great glory began to dovscend upon us. 59 The first important event was the election of officers, (ireat spirit was shown l)y the entire class. When it came time for Prize Speaking, much to the astonishment of the entire school, and particularly to the Seniors, we captured both prizes and honorable mentions. Of our participants we were exceedingly proud. Towards the close of the year, we entertained the Seniors with a reception, at which some of our members displayed great talent. This year, in athletics, we won the soccer and track championships; and in the big relay race on Class Day, we came out ahead. Our Senior year went with great rapidity. During this year, we instituted a new method of electing class officers, which proved to be very satisfactory, indeed. Of such success did they find it, that the Juniors adopted the same plan. This year, too, so different were we from any other class, that the teachers saw fit to change their Reception to a Senior Night. This change, we are glad to say, worked exceptionally well. At Prize Speaking, this time, we captured nearly all the rewards, one prize and both honorable mentions. Through the advice of Mr. Woodbury, we held but one class party of our own, this year, and combined with the other classes for the rem.ain- ing one, thus showing our very unselfish spirit. The girls representing the Senior English classes, defeated the boys of the Debating Club both times when the contest was tried out, and also in the final debate before the school. We won the Interclass Track meet by a great margin, this year, such fine athletes did we put forth ; with such an athletic career, we feel that our class will win the final Relay Race this year. Our class receives credit for the starting of the Courtesy Campaign, which we proposed by our Vice-President to the School Council. Through the great ingenuity of our class members, we ran off our Senior Class Play, ‘‘She Stoops to Conquer,” in the Lyric Theatre, making the greatest success of it. Indeed, we feel that in all our four years, we have had a most wonder- ful course, offering many new and useful ideas to our teachers and fellow classmen. We have had many members noted for their great talents along the lines of music, speaking, studies, athletics, theatrical ability, and, in fact, all arts. 60 CLASS OF 1915. CHRONOLOGY SEPTEMBER. 8.

Well, of course, having remembered and remembering you will remember remembering (naturally Beatrice). 13. To the great joy of many in the 3rd hour Latin class Mr.Leighton was considerate enough to call for sight translation. Oh you unprepared lesson. 14. Sh! Don’t mention it. Tread softly on the sleeping. But did you hear the score at Nashua? Yes but we hear Noah was disgusted at it (slugging) 27-7. 16. A Horlick’s Malted Milk advertisement found in the office. Is it for Woodbury’s immediate family, or for the freshman who needs it much more? 17. Mr. Harding’s answer book has arrived at last. All papers collected much to the grief of some.

Senior girls amuse the lower classmen by playing “London Bridge’’ at recess. Scandal! 3. Thursday — Mr. Jenkin’s speech on his work in Piedmont College. Juniors appear with small spots which they consider class pins. They must have a rather small opinion of 1916 judging by the display. 4. Faculty reception to the seniors. A good number present who enjoyed a very cleverly performed play entitled “Pa’s New Housekeeper’’ by several Normal School people. Delicious refreshments were served and it proved a great success. 7.

The play was given under the co-management of Miss Helen F. Stratton and Miss Mary Ethel Greene. Mr. William A. Leighton, the faculty business manager, was ably assisted by Roger C. Allen, the student business manager, and a com- mittee of twenty. The costumes were made by the kindness of Miss Alice B. Hoyt, while Mr. Harry W. Leland constructed all the necessary stage properties. “She Stoops To Conquer” by Oliver Goldsmith, was first performed in London in 1773. The plot is based on an actual experience of the author, who in his youth was directed by a wag to a private house for an inn. “She Stoops To Conquer,” sometimes referred to as a comedy of manners, has had an unbrokened record of triumphs. It is one of the three eighteenth century comedies that still retain their popularity. It holds its high place in English literature because it contributed greatly to the overthrow of the false, sentimental comedy of its age. The action of the play takes place within the space of eight hours. ACT 1. Scene 1. — Family room of Squire Hardcastle’s house. Time: Late afternoon.

We’ve been in many cities And rode on many trains, But never saw a “ Fresh ie” Who had a lot of brains. We’ve been in many cities On many ships did sprawl. And always knew a Junior To think he knew it all. We’ve been in many cities Over many roads did chug. And in every place on th’ map The Soph is called a Thug. We’ve been in many cities Of towns we saw enough But never met a Senior Who ever refused to Bluff. We’ve been in many cities In some ’neath foreign sky. But never saw such hustlers As the Boys of Fitchburg High. 82 ATHLETICS AN ESSENTIAL MORAL FACTOR T he purpose of education today is in a great measure directed to the making of good citizens. To do this there must be a three sided development of the student, that is, the mental, the moral, and the physicial. Athletics, when pursued with moderation, to a great degree solves the problem of physical development. It also becomes the laboratory where many of the good and bad traits of character are acquired — therefore its office in the moral training of the student. We hear the statement that this school is a poor loser or a good one; a player is a gentleman or a “mucker.” Take the same individuals under almost any other circumstances, and they would all be classed as gentlemen. In the excitement of physical contest, men act and appear as they really are, and not as they assume to be. The athletic field is the great common ground where every man proves his merit or his worthlessness. It is th e final analysis of character, and he succeeds or fails because of what he really is. The real life of the youth from his point of view is the one that he lives out with his fellows. Here he is free to pick and choose, to deter- mine for himself what he will or will not do, swayed by his own deepest feelings and sentiments, influenced by those with whom he associates. Where the opportunity is given the boys of a community to live out their real lives as expressed in competitive play — athletics under a wise leadership that drives home the lesson of right and wrong at the psychological moment of their occurence in practice — juvenile delin- quency, misdemeanor, and crime decrease. Athletics provides for an expression of youthful instinct and interest that is vital to the development of character. It is an essential factor in any scheme of mor al education. 84 OFFICERS OF THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. 1914-1915. Executive Committee.

Few high school teams in the state were able to equal the record turned in by the local high school football team and for a time the boys had championship aspirations. They not only succeeded in winning the Wachusett Interscholastic football pennant, but displayed a form that entitled them to even more consideration than mere winners of the league championship. Their work all through the year, their success against stronger and more experienced teams, their showing in every situation and in the number of points scored, marked the 1915 football team as one of unusual ability and power. The team played eleven games and won nine of them. They lost to Nashua High after the most strenuous contest of the season in which the questionable methods adopted and put into effect by the New Hampshire team spoiled the exhibition. That was the only game lost. Gardner succeeded in tying us while Cushing Academy second and the Mechanic Arts of Boston were the only teams to score in addition to Nashua. This is a remarkable record considering the calibre of the opponents encountered by the high school squad. The Seniors on the team were well represented by Captain Hannula, Myllykangas, Fish, Moriarty, Stevenson, Rossier, Savage, Ligom, Rice, Allen, Deneen, and Ruddy. 87 SUMMARY. Date Place Opponents.

N OW as the final page in the history of the 1914-1915 athletic season, and a fitting climax to the glorious record of our high school, we wish to express our appreciation for the wonderful work accomplished by o ur physical director, Clarence N. Amiott. At his feet we place the laurel wreaths of our victories, for is it not indeed his unbounded enthusiasm, his untiring energy, his patience and interest in us that laid the foundations of, and brought about the results of our great success in athletics. Never in its history has the Fitchburg High School made such progress and continuous success in all branches of athletics as under the leadership of our present coach. We have during the past year, not only won the Wachusett Interscholastic Championships in football, basketball, base- ball, and track, but have scored victories over many of the strongest teams in the state. All of this was possible under the supervision of Mr. Amiott’s coaching system and his manner of developing the possibili- ties in the fellows. In return for his efforts there has been displayed a fighting spirit and interest that is wonderful when we compare our athletic standard with that of some years past. He has really put the F. H. S. “on the map,” and we are now seriously considered by institu- tions of big athletic reputation as a power not to be slighted. Being an alumnus of our school makes us doubly proud of him, and we only hope that the school will acknowledge his valuable services as director of athletics; we hope that he may continue in his office as the most popular coach in |:he history of our Alma Mater. Chapeaux has to Mr Amiott! It is also proper at the present moment to present our card of thanks to Dr. Francis McMurray for the interest he has taken in our school, and for the indispensable services which he has rendered in his professional capacity in looking after the physical welfare of our athletes. 89 BASKET BALL TEAM BASKETBALL. T he basketball team made an unusual record this season, for it not only won the Wachusett Interscholastic basketball league pennant but also defeated every high school it went against, losing only two of the 13 games played. Both defeats were administered by the Cushing Academy second team, which won by one point at Cushing and then repeated by two points at Fitchburg. Despite those two defeats, the record was a remarkable one and Coach Amiott has every reason to be proud of the excellent showing made by his players. The school has turned out seven letter men: six of these. Captain Fish, Stevenson, Marshall, Parkhurst, Allen and Claman, being Seniors. Date Place SUMMARY. Opponents F. H.

A S in the case of football and basketball Fitchburg had a most successful baseball team this year. It has not only won the Wachusett Interscholastic league pennant, but only lost one game of its entire schedule. One of the peculiar facts that makes this record even more remarkable is, that the team was almost entirely composed of new men and the outlook for baseball aspirations were truly dim. However, it only needed a man of Coach Amiott’s ability to turn it into a winning aggregation. Date Place Opponents F. H. S.

T he seventh year of the Industrial Course has come to its close with the usual supply of energetic young business men on hand who have fostered the well known reputation of the course for turning out intelligent and industrious workers to meet the problems of the industrial world. • • j • i The class has made several tours of inspection to various industrial plants in this city, Boston, and Worcester. There are sixteen boys who are completing the course of four years struggle with the practical and theoretical problems not only m the sacred halls of the high school but also in the various manufacturing plants of the city. Among this number are nine full-fledged machinists, two printers, one cotton mill operator, one draftsman, and one jack-of-all- trades, whom we classify thus because he has delved into drafting, machine work and the grocery business; yet has been fascinated by none. We suspect he will turn out to be an artist or some other such impractical worker. We must thank the employers for the encouragement and oppor- tunity they have given us to get this unique training. They expect, and rightly, that we will become more efficient workers and contribute to the high reputation of Fitchburg products, which is world-wide. We tender our gratitude to our teachers who have given so much of their time and energy to prepare us for the future, and to the foremen and workmen in the shops who have lent us aid and encouragement. And finally we shall endeavor to maintain the reputation of the course which our predecessors have so firmly established, and if possible spread its good report so that others may enjoy its benefits.

By ‘‘Newt” Don’t say a Senior’s a lunatic when he acts silly. He does it to amuse you, children. Be sure and attend the ball games twice a week anyway. If baseball interferes with your studies, give the studies up. When you see a Sophomore — shoot him — he’s an enemy; when you spy a Junior — weep for him — he’s hopeless; when you flicker your lamps on a Senior — bow — he’s your superior. When C. T. is reading Bible, hit him with spitballs. He enjoy ’s seeing children play. Give the statute a cigarette once a week. They’re croaking for a smoke. Do not take English from Mary Ethel Greene, for her marks have a very low temperature. Eor your daily Mythology and Fairy Tales, visit Room 32. Skip school only once a week, so C. T. can t catch on. Don’t get frightened at Mr. Coffin, in music; he only takes ’em once a week; he ain’t responsible. Don’t get all excited when you see something prowling around Room 39. No, it’s not a missing link. He teaches Biology. When there is a fire, go out calmly and quietly; when there is a firedrill, stay and fight the fire. A remarkable senior is Ryan, Who, in school is a regular lion, Said Fred, ‘‘It is queer” As he let fall a tear; ‘‘My marks I just barely get by on!” Clerk in the Shoe Store — ‘‘These shoes are Louis XIV, madam.” Beryl H. — ‘‘They are pretty large, I think Louis XIII will be big enough.” His name, like his face, it is Ruddy, And they do say, his brain, it is muddy. He may be big and strong But he’s always in wrong, The truth must be told, he don’t study. 120 DAFFYDILS. IF Miss Laitala was with Miss Hipwell, who was Edith Asquith? IF Annie Dunn likes her oolong-seelong-solong tea, who in Haverill likes Frank Kiel-ty? IF you need a remedy or cure, come and visit — Sullivan, ’15; Driscoll, ’16. They’re both “HERBS.” IE Dirt is daughter of Mother Earth, is Sand-er-son? IE she found someone stole an afternoon P. M. session, who would Miss Martina Chase? IE Rice is soft, is Eber-hard? IE he was dumb, could Mattie Yelle? IE Ryan is solid oak, is Hazel Elint? IE Miss Hamilton is wrong, is Pauline Wright? IE Alice is a she, is Harr-a-hy? IF Sully is wild, is Gail Savage? IF Dorothy told a fib, would it be a “White” lie? IF Dana won a great race, would it be a Good-win? IF Elsie told us of her lovers adventures would it sound like a “Fish” story? IF Theresa Walsh is Sharp, is Vivian Keene? IF she bought a “bike” would Grace Rideout to Ashby? IF Joe was a nut, would we be justified in calling him a Maney-ac? IF she made a date, would Percy New-combe? IF Fenton is worth 33% how much is Alice Holling- worth? IF C. T. likes pepsin gum, who likes Li-gom? IF we threw paper on the floor would Mr. Burrage? IF Roland’s love-sick is Ruth’s Hartwell? 121 CARTOONS. 1. The Dingbat Family 2. The Family Upstairs 3. Billy the Boy Artist . 4. Shrimp Flynn 5. ’Smatter Pop .... 6. Tight Wacldo the Monk . 7.

Miss Fuller holds Mr. Fernald in her lap on a crowded car from Whalom. Who’d have thought it, Madeline? There is a bright Senior named Hogan, “Pass, no matter how” is his slogan. In room thirty-two Much bull, oh! he threw Some day may he be Mayor Hogan. Chalmers: — What color is Paris green? Cully: — White. Chalmers: — How would you polish a diamond? Gutek : — Sandpaper it. LEST WE FORGET. O! don’t you remember the first days in school, When we were Freshies, acting the fool; O! don’t you remember when we were sophomores When studies and teachers began to be bores; And dont’ you remember us as Juniors last fall; Yes, last fall when we thought we knew it all; And we remember as we pass from this school The knocks and th’ boosts of the Faculty Rule. We were a happy crew We can’t forget. We were a good crew We won’t forget. Say, you must remember — O! Jimmy Mack s wit. When we laughed at him he thought he made a hit? O! don’t you remember, those marks of Miss Greene, Mary Ethel, of generosity lean? And don’t you remember our friend. Miss Smith, Who, in Civics, has thrilled us with myth? Now, ’course you remember, the great Hunter , too, O! Billy, how you hated our crew? We want to remind you Lest you forget And we want to say, too We can’t forget. Edmunds: — What plants flourish in excessive heat? Priest: — ‘dee plants.” There are rays and raze and raise; but our Florence Reeh outshines them all. 123 Ode To A Senior. ' rhe chairs in the classroom don’t miss you, For you a])used them much while you were here; The desks and the woodwork don’t miss you, And the teachers, do they wish you were near. ' " Miss Smith: — (In Civics) Do you think wars are good things.’ Thompson: — “No.” Miss Smith: — “Why don’t you? Thompson: — “Because wars make history, and I hate history. Wallis: — Where’s that crowd of girls going? Parkhurst: — Why, they are going to Whalom to look for Sweet Fern. Foolish little queries. Questions quite as bad. Make the hour pass quickly. And make the teacher mad. Perault and Ruddy — “Them fellows surely have some circus.” Wm. Hunter — “What fellows?” Perault and Ruddy — “Ringling Brothers. Hunter — P. M. Sessions! Rock-a-bye, Senior, on the tree top. As long as you study, the cradle will rock. If you stop cramming the cradle will fall, Down com.es the Senior, diploma, and all. Teacher — “Your answer is about as clear as mud.” Bright Freshie — “Well it covers the ground doesn’t it?” Now ■ ' Sully ’s” head is large. Like Donald Wyman’s feet. So when the two together come. Extremes of largeness meet. 124 Amiott ' s Dream If all the big handsome girls on the second floor were only boys, what a fine football squad I would have. Sherriffs to Amiott. ‘ ' Don’t tell me Kielty made a Hit: Amiott. “Oh! Yes he did all right.” Sherriffs. “Well how did he do it.’ Amiott. “Oh! Playing Charlie Chaplin.” Lauri Hannula from the banks of Falulah Is an athlete known to fame, You won’t find another, Unless it’s his brother With such a euphonious name. Mr. Leighton — “Ruddy you must learn to decline a noun.” Ruddy — “Aw? I’d rather decline to learn it.” We might put up with Frances Lowe, Although she is a bore. If she would please dissolve that laugh, In H2SO4. Foolish questions by the thousands. Foolish people thick as brass. No, I mean n o loon asylum. But Edmonds’ Biology Class. There is a young girl named Hester, Who dearly delights to pester Her friends who all love her. None stand above her So Hester continues to pester. Is she bashful? Is she quiet? Does she ever start a riot? If you thought it, come and see Miss Alexander in Biology. 125 C. T.’S NIGHTMARE 1. (J)ur principal was eating his breakfast too fast As though he was haunted by a terrible past. To his beloved wife his secret did pass, A secret which deals with our wonderful class. ‘Of the class of FIFTEEN I was dreaming,” he said; “Their prospects to me were speedily read. How 1915 shared a remarkbale fate. The details of my vision to you I’ll relate”: — 2 . In my vision “Herb” Sullivan seemed happy and gay. For you see, he was President of the U. S. A. “Sully”, his namesake, was Secretary of State, In school he was unrivalled In Civics debate. I next dreamed of Congress and the Senate House Where presided Paul Leonard of blasting prowess; Among the great Senators were Fenton and Hodge And many were the bills that they tried to dodge. 3. Four bills were submitted, increasing the pensions. Of Misses Shack and Perron, Daley and Hutchins, Another bill was submitted by Senator Yelle For patching the crack in the Liberty Bell. I observed Irving Wilmot coming out of a bank. He was now a good citizen of very high rank. The president of the bank gave me a friendly look, And I knew him as Thompson when his hand I took. 126 4. Irving Smith, the cashier, was pleased to see me. As also were Misses Brody and Sweeney. Misses Connors and Weston and Corliss taught school. And Westgate was forever ‘ shooting” pool. ' ‘Dot” Sturtevant I met with brush in her hand. She was painting a picture to beat the band. I wandered around her art studio And saw there a picture of Mary Lowe. Next down the line came “Smiling Joe” Maney, And after him coming, Jimmy Mullaney, Joe had a wife and children to amuse. While Jimmy was editor of the “Daily News . Elsie Thomas also was there you can bet. For, if nothing else, there is Fish in her net. I also observed Hazel Flint at a ball And there, standing near her, w as her friend, Ruth Hall. 6. Morris Ligom gained fame in a vaudeville skit, Fred Ryan, as “Hamlet”, was making a hit. O’Hara was drawing cartoons for the Post And drawing a salary was also his boast. Simie Laitala was content to live on a farm With health on her face and “pail” on her arm. She thought it a pleasure to get up with “old Sol”, In truth, she was happy from Winter to Fall. 7. My dream then took me to a modern cafe Where manager Gutek was boiling some hay. Now in this cafe were many I knew. Among them Misses Beer, Rugg and Eskola, too. At one of the tables sat Leonice Brown, And ordering her lunch, she said with a frown, “Hazel Hill said she’d be here at two, without fail, Perhaps for the cause, she was landed in jail. 127 8. Paul Kielty was an editor of fame and renown His paper was the best of any in town. He has for assistants, “Pink” Wyman and Dace -, And also a woman reporter, Miss Lacey. At the Sentinel’s lines I happened to glance, “Anson Smith has invented a wonderful dance.” Perhaps you would call it “The Porcupine Walk”, “The Slippery Eel Glide” or “Annie-Goat’s Balk”. 9. “Ray” Parkhurst, the jeweller was earning a name. In music Opal Shirreffs was gaining great fame. Louise Oleson, I dreamed, was a Suffragette “Syl” Pankhurst, on her, had nothing you bet. Beryl Harrison in vacation was living in Paris, While London was toured by Marjorie Harris. George Dunn was a student of Greek verbs at college His learned brain still in search of more knowledge. 10 . Helen Butler amused me with a piano selection, Ex-Mayor Hardy was up for re-election. Pretty girls were interested in “Stevenson’s Life”, Eberhard, for a band, was playing a fife. Miss Driscoll showed me many books that she wrote Geo. Gustafson, tho’ little (. ) was old enuf to vote. A new Women’s Club was formed by Miss McNally, Every night, at her home, they held a big rally. 11 . My dream took me to Barnum’s with its clamor and din. The barker, Johnny Quinn, had yelled himself thin. I bought me a ticket and saw the big show. It was thrilling to see Tainter the lariat throw. There on a horse riding, bareback, was Cashman “Ham” Ruddy, running loose was banging a dishpan. When Goodwin, contortionist, had looked like a knot. It took seven men to loosen him on the spot. 128 12. Ralph Howard stood on his head with wonderful ease, “Heimie” Claman did some stunts on a trapeze. The clown patrol came out and arrested Deneen, Supposed to be drunk and land on his bean. The clown band staggered forth, killed music, and then some, “Mitt” Fish played the bagpipes, and Fenno a drum; While “Musical” Greenburg slashed the “Star Spangled Banner , Mosher played the “Dead March” in a ludicrous manner. 13. I dreamed of the side show , the home of the freaks To tell what I saw would take twenty weeks. Culley was inside, the smallest man alive. And Samson Myllikangas with shoes size 25. We came upon “Cliff” Marshall doing sleight-of-hand, Elizabeth “Alexander” had the best band in the land. For riding horse bareback, no equal had Dick Rice, He only fell off five times in every seven tries. 14. I was delighted to meet the snake charmer. Miss Griffin, Many people surrounded the fat woman. Miss Scanlon. The juggler, Mulhern, gave us much for our money. We laughed at his jokes, he though he was funny. Rossier did some tricks that were made in the Ark, Great dancing was shown by Misses Tilton and Clark. John Barnicle was tatooed with Carter’s Black Ink, And after each show washed it off in the sink. 15. Yours truly then went to where Bachelor’s Hall is Among those who were free, were Allen and Wallis. Hannula didn’t know what caused his downfall, A year after he married a “beautiful doll”. I dreamed that Miss Hamilton had a parrot named Polly, Which, when it first came, could only say “Golly”. But as naughty boys soon taught it “cuss words” galore. She sold it in a place with three balls o’er the door. 129 16 . My ision then took me to a “vodvil” show, In the hrst act, Miss Buckley danced on one toe. After fine singing by Misses Phillips and Keene, Lena Rome, in the movies, was shown on the screen. The Brigham Sisters in a duet, made a big hit, Hogan, as “Jean Batiste,” made my sides split. Horton showed us tricks and sprung a bum joke. Then the show ended with a monologue by Rourke. 17 . Miss O’Brien was now a full-fledged hair-dresser, Wellington I knew as a Botany professor. In the LouvTe were some paintings by Miss Corinne Cook And her sister was author of Bertha’s Cook Book. Then I chanced to be in a modern drug-store Where Frank Kielty the owner sold drugs by the score. He had many people who tried his drug-cure, The drug was still going, but the people were fewer. 18 . O’Connor, as captain, was playing third base Helping the Athletics in the big pennant race. Danny Moriarty caught for the Brooklyn Dodgers, The Braves’ star fielder was our friend, Byron Hodges. Edith Terrell at the piano, was famed far and near. ’Retta Shea, a teacher of school did appear. Too bad Mil Lesure’s honeymoon was denied. The lucky old groom from an accident died. 19 . Miss McCarty and Miss Campbell both owned the nan e, “BRIDE”, Who the victims were, I couldn’t quite decide. Miss Mitchell, on the typewriter, was heartlessly cruel. Miss Carey, a schoolmarm, observed the Golden Rule. Sanderson, back in Shirley, spent most of his time. Miss Lepalla spent hers in drinking lemon lime. The latest “Nobel peace prize” was won by Dora Rome; Bennett got the contract to paint the White House Dome. 130 20. Mae Monahan on the stage was at the height of her career, In knowledge and wisdom, Miss Wright has no peer, Cutie Fernald as a hero, was now at his height For he licked Fat Deneen in a twenty round fighF Collins owned a theater called the OVERFLOW , The crowd was enjoying “himself” m the front row. Misses Halloran and Grant were stenographers famed, “I am the only girl bass”, Arlene Matson claimed.- 21 - „ ■ Austin Sweeney had boosted the price of the “Raven , Geo. Moriarty recklessly rode on the New Haven. Miss Keaveney was manager of the five and ten While “Benny” Perkins lived by his brains and his pen. Back to the Wilderness went Margaret Dwyer To be in dear old Clinton was her only desire. Eddie Welch owned an auto full of gasolene. Ever since it exploded, he hasn t benzine . 22 . Miss Crozier lived on a farm with a “hubby” and cow Clif Parkhurst was a gentleman of leisure now. Charley Murch became more famous than Edison or e , He invented “Hole-less Doughnuts” and “Onions minus Smell . Teresa McCarthy bossed a typewriter, with vim. She married the boss, and then she bossed him. Julia Shea had blue eyes when her “beau” came to court er. But not so “blue as him” when he had to support her. 23. In the High School the library was run by Miss Johnstone. At the Bijou, Wesley Buck “made moosic” on the trombone. Charlotte Vodden in an office banged the typewriter keys, Carl Spitzer, without fainting, could eat Limburger Cheese. Miss Coveil as a singer was famed both far and wide. Every time she sung a song, about one-half the audience die . Miss Nolan knocked down jitneys at the 5 and 10, While Donovan in a jitney was knocking down men. 131 24 . Harry Barnacle on the stage made a big ‘diit”, 1 he missiles came from the gallery, and even from the pit. Ruth Marshall, as a ‘ ' suff”, also made a ‘‘hit”, She hit Premier Asquith that made him throw a fit. Miss Downey, missionary of Good St. Mark, Captured a “Savage” in the wilds of Whalom Park. I saw Harrahy in Denmark, selling “Copenhagen Snuff”, Its lucky he went to High School where he learned to bluff. 25 . A paper called “Truth” was founded by Emerson, A few of its editors were Misses Davis, Bruce, and Faxon; But as the girls got older and refused to tell their age. The name of the paper was then called “The Rage”. In a bargain store I saw Misses Smith and Fletcher rush, And I also noticed there Ann McElroy and her blush. Miss F. A. McCarthy edited a Style Book Dot White tamed many men with a bewitching look. 26 . Miss Anderson on a farm kept a pig and a hen, Florence Reeh was famed as a conqueror of men. Frances Lowe, tragedienne, went abroad to sing And came back with the name “Mam’selle Belle a Bing”. No one could trim Rachel Marshall in debate, Viola Woodruff, as a doctor, increased the death rate. “Bob” Amell I saw walking with two little lasses. While Misses Sexton and Ashline taught Sunday School classes. 27 . From our Western town came smiling “Lil” McMurray, And down from the South came Miss Morrilly. Helen Metcalf, as a lecturer, surely made her mark And also Grace Rideout, as a Biology Shark. Out to Revere for a week went Jim Manning, He got badly sunburnt while he tho’t he was tanning. The Misses Holloran and Hennessey had a manicure shop. And Misses Huntting and Kelly taught the tango hop. 132 28. A millinery shop was kept by Mary Hipwell, Percy Newcombe, on the force, had a riot to quell. A salaried New York teacher was Madeline Fuller, With her students she was popular as “Maud Muller”. Miss Winthrop and Upham were clerks in a store. And Cousins at a ballgame made out the score. John Weidlich, a Socialist, too, wiped out a score. When he threw a bomb amongst a crowd of ten or more. 29. There flourished June brides in my dream, I know. Among them Miss McNamara, Ryan, Walsh, and Lowe. Blanche Sullivan at lunch was eating with vim. She said that she feared she was getting too slim. To an old woman’s home went Misses Donnelly and Oleson, To a Bachelor Maid’s Club strolled Cecelia Cullen. Edith Asquith wrote a book called “Why is a Fly?” And Alice Hollingworth sold “Anti-Red Hair Dye”. 30. “Aly dream is ended, and also my breakfast. Eve related 15’ s wonderful past More wonderful than the Atlantic Cable”, Said Charlie as he got up from the table: — “Although each class bragged they were the best The Class of ’15 is better than the rest. Now you’re on to what will pass In the futures of our marvelous class.” 133 We, the Board of Editors, wish to extend our hearty appreciation to the generous advertisers who aided us in meeting the expense necessitated by the publication of this book; and we earnestly urge our friends and classmates to patronize them whenever possible.

To amend the Constitution of Massachusetts it is necessary to have an amendment passed two successive years by the state legislature and then receive a favorable vote at the next election. An amendment granting the right of suffrage to women passed the Massachusetts legislature in 1914 and again in 1915, therefore, it will be printed on the ballot to be cast at the polls on next election day, November 2, 1915. The Fitchburg Equal Suffrage League earnestly asks the men of Fitchburg to vote “ YES ” on this amendment. Mrs. Minerva C. Crocker, President. Mrs. Richard Fosdick, Seeretary.
