Also we are greatly indebted to anyone and everyone who assisted. In particular, Miss Brown, Mr. MacNamara and Mr. Dooling of the Faculty. Toivo Jalko, Elmer Erickson and Helen Shea of the Senior Class. We are also indebted to Mr. Peabody of the Dejonge Paper Company, who con- tributed in a large way towards making the material construction of this book of a high standard. 10 BERNARD FRANCIS SHEA So slant and cheerful, So jolly and gay. When it became necessary to choose a leader for our progressive class, we all agree that a better or more efficient president could not have been found. He not only believes in the Golden Rule, but practices it and when questions and matters of class importance arise, he settles them with a manner and wisdom not unlike Solomon. However " Bun” does not always take the serious side of life for we have heard certain rumors lately of those frequent, romantic tours in the ‘‘big city.” with a charm- ing, well-known debutante of tender years. Nevertheless " Bun” always takes things easy and allows no person or thing to intervene in his official duties of making the Class of 1921. the best that was, is, or ever will be. HELENA HYNES 1 believe in doing exactly what I should, Not putting off until to-morrow as some others would. Lena has been our competent vice-president for two years and who could hope to officiate any better? She has never shirked her responsibilities and has worked faithfully to uphold the standard of our class. Not only that, but she has also served on several com- mittees for the interests of all the girls in the school. Further, she is a speaker of great ability, and whenever any important subject is to be discussed, or any matter concerning school life is to be presented, Helena is right there. Notwithstanding this oratorical ability, we under- stand that she is more or less inclined to leave that flowery path, outside of school hours, and to be content to converse in love’s baby-talk with her li’l Jimmy. IRENE CELIA McGOWAN None knew her but to love her, No7ie named her but to praise. Besides being our efficient secretary for two years, Irene has been our friend through all our trials and tribu- lations. She certainly believes in the old proverb, " A friend in need, is a friend indeed.” Most of Irene’s spare time is spent in Worcester, and we all know why. She sure can trip a light fantastic toe, especially at those Worcester Tech, dances. She is also somewhat of an actress and it is a well- known fact that her future ambitions lie in a stage career, although this depends more or less on what Freddie says, as he has had a great deal to say concerning her actions during recent years. FRANCIS WILLIAM BUCKLEY Smile and the world smiles with you. Toot! Toot! make way everybody for the fat man with the " Tin-Lizzie” who has won his way into the hearts, and inspired the confidence of the Class of 1921. Not only has " Buck " proved himself a capable treasurer, but has also made a name for himself in athletics, especially on the foot-ball field where he has starred for three years. He is also president of the Athletic Association and president of the Senior Crocker Club, which duties de- mand a great deal of his attention. And, as an actor, oh. my! but you should see him. Whether condemning the villain of the fiercest type, or wooing the most beautiful heroine that ever lived, he does it with an ease and perfection that would make a professional hide with shame. As a last word, we wish to say that a more honest, respectable, full-blooded, real .American fellow could not be found anywhere. ANNA MARIE AHLIN Happy she seemed from morn ' till night. Anna is a good sport and always seems to have a good time. She is Mr. Amiott ' s sten- ographer and tells us it ' s a good ob. She is a leader in the Commercial Course and ought to be a headliner in business some day. FRANCES STEWART AMELL ‘I ' ve lived, I’ve loved, I ' m satisfied. Frances came to us during the Sophomore year closely guarded by . Since then she is seldom seen around the corridors, preferring to stay in her home-room at recess and talk with ? Outside of school Nick takes up most of her time. ROSE MARTHA ANDERSON Indeed she was a merry lass and all -were glad to have her in our class. Rose might look quiet but as you know " looks are deceiving. " She was one of the stars on our championship basketball team and is an all-round good sport. Rose loves (?) shorthand and is one of Miss Ordung’s fav- orites {?). Favorite saying: " Oh gee!” ELLEN LETITIA ASQUITH Golden locks, golden locks, U ' ili thou be mine? Ellen s favorite pastime is dancing (with ouster) and she is some dancer, too. Every recess you are always sure to find Ellen off m some corner with Buster. They seem to be quite " sleady.” She is a star in Civics but doesn’t want it known. HAZEL ANNA AUCLAIR have no men to govern in this school. That is my only -woe. I his is what Hazel thinks, although she doesn t admit it— but we know. She spends mo.st of her time leading bewildered patrons to their seats at Shea ' s. We e.xpect to see Hazel in Lady Duff Gordon ' s place some day. Noted for her ability at millinery. THELMA IDELl.A BACON An intellect, -with force and skill, To strive, to fashion, and fulfill. Thelma is popular y th the teachers for the perfection with which she does her lessons, and with the students for her love of fun. She partakes in most of the school activities and IS in the Senior Class play. She is also a member of Drama tic and French Clubs, MALCOLM FENNER BAILEY He follows his father, but not with equal steps. Although you only joined us in your Junior year, we wish it could have been longer, Fenner. It was reported that he was very much in love with a young lady from Quincy but we seriously think that he has lost his heart over a certain young lady in the Sophomore class. How about it, Fenner. Noted for holding up the corner near the library ev ' ery recess. WARREN HAMILTON BALLARD Ilis voice commandelh all. Another valued member of the part-time course. We give him credit for being faithful to his lessons. When it comes to going to the “Big Citv” Warren is “right there.” Many of the Senior boys envy his classy shoes. We hear they are made to order??? He saves all his energy for the week he works at Simonds, so this naturally accounts for his silence. RICHARD ALBERT BALLOU Give me a girl and I ' ll be happy. " Dick” sure is the " bees knees " . As an orator he ' d put the finishing touches on the rear end of a fish wagon. But still he ' s a pretty good sort of a guy. “Sleepy” wastes every other week down at Simonds and spends his leisure moments in Shea ' s Hippodrome. We suspect a woman! You know him — the fellow with the sleeping sickness. 16 HERBERT HEATH BLACKWELL With grave aspect, he rose, a)id in his rising A pillar of stale. Behold mild peruser, the ring-leader of all noise, disturbances and discords that occur in the Fitchburg High School (the man that spends his vacations in the “Old Howard. ) When called to account for his misdemeanors he frankly stated. “Well, we all have our dissipations.” However, these faults may be overlooked when we consider that a more perfect gentleman can not be found. ROSWELL WILSON BLANCHARD A Ford and a wrench and I -Loill be happyl It is reported that when Roswell Yas a small child, he liked to play with tin cans. We fear it has left a lasting impression on the boy’s mind as he spends considerable time repairing (out of sympathy) Fords. When not thus engaged he goes to a dance. The remainder of his time is spent in studying. Noted for his abijity to hypnotize Fords. VERA MAY BOSWORTH She is beautiful, pleasant and swett Icmperf ' . Vera has only been with us one year, and during that time she and Fay have been con- tinually together. She has a quiet manner, but is always very willing to help less brilliant individuals, and therefore very well liked. OSCAR CHARLES BOUSQUET, JR. Creal men were made to meet on great occasions. This certainly means Oscar. We expect to see him in C. T. ' s place some day. He cer- tainly did his share in completing this book, in fact, if it were not for liini we doubt if there would be a class book. Oscar would make a great debater, especially with M. C. S. As for making a speech always call on Bousquet then you’ll be sure of one. Noted for that dignified manner. HENRY GEORGE BOWEN I ' m the guy who knows the world is flat. Hear, hear all ye disciples of Columbus, we have with tis today, a man who can, without the aid of any living person, prove beyond a shadow of a doubt or question that the earth is flat. Well, he always had a good line, any- way, and generally gets by with it, except with M. C. S., whose views differ to some extent. Of late, he has been following in the footsteps of J. D., but we’ll overlook that failure, when we consider his splendid work as manager of the football team. MARGARET BRACK The blushing beauties of a modest maid. We must say Margaret has never troubled IIS with much excitement and we rarely hear from her unnecessary talk. We won’t men- tion that she comes from Cleghorn because it isn’t for us to criticize anyone’s back yard. M. C. Smith, we are told, is considering, with Margaret, making Cleghorn a city, governed entirely by women (including Margaret and Blanche D.). Keep it up Margaret, We expect you’ll take Mary C. ' s place if you are ever big enough to fill her shoes. LEONA ELEANOR BRADLEY A simple maid and proper too. You can always tell Leona by that happy smile which never dies out. We hear (hat she taught the little children of Ashby for a week but then decided to go to a larger place — such as Notown. If it isn’t Bill, it’s Ted. Now, which is it, Leona? Noted for that everlasting smile. LESTER L. BROWN Strong reaso7ts nake strong actions. “Buster ' s " love is not concentrated alto- gether on his lessons for he is frequently seen with Ellen, but we ' ll excuse that. He is the leader of the F. H. S. Band and displayed much skill with the broom stick. He has been known to take a nap in the class-room. Noted for his unusual ability to play the drums and traps. KATHERINE LOUISE BRUCE Judge thou me not by what I am, So shall thou find me fairest. Katherine has done a great deal for the Class Play. She helped to publish our " Red and Gray.” She is also very fond of athletics but does not forget her lessons. We are confident she will show her worth at Wellesley as well as she did here. Noted for her excellent marks. HELEN FOX BKUCE Oh, for the light in her eyes. Helen is otir star actress. Whether a maid in Shakespeare, a Colonial dame, or a girl of the Twenticlh Century, she can take the part to perfection. Theron and she made the Class Play the best ever presented by the school. Slie also held the vice-presidency in the Dramatic Club and did a great deal to boost it along. KATHERINE l.EONA BUCKLEV Wide is the gulf between me ami man. We are sure that Katherine ' s one ambition is to be a scliool teacher and we are most cer- tain that she will succeed in that line. But we must also sympathize with the poor chil- dren. Never mind, Katherine, wc arc sure you will change your iiarsh ways before then. As for studying, that is her chief occupation. MADELINE EKCEL BUZZELL She talks and talks and talks Ve Cods, henu she will talk. Madeline is a very gay niemlier of our class. She never does much studying but manages to gel by just the same. It was re- ported at one time that Madeline was very much in love witli a Junior, but now we hear lhal it is a Sophomore. What next, Madeline, a Freshman? Noted as the best talker in the school. IS MAKfiAKET HELEN CALT When I ' m a farmer’s wife How happy I ' ll be. Well, wc don’t know about that, Margaret. By the way things look now we believe that you will hold the position of Miss Ordung in a few years. You can always be sure to find Margaret in her seat about a second before the last bell rings. RUSSELL CHARLES Great floods have Jlo7vn from simple sources. Russell is one of the smallest lads in our class but we must admire the good judgment which he displays by sticking in school. With his violin he forms a part of Miss Pepin’s famous " Jazz Band. " He is a great business man — he’ll give you an American for a Sentinel any time. Noted for his ability to hold down Blossom Street corner. RUTH B. CLOUTIER A jolly good girl is she. Well Ruth, we can say that no matter what trouble comes your way, you will always smile and bear it; for instance, those P. M. sessions. Ruth spends most of her lime try- ing to make Parke Snow, Inc. the leading store in the city. We hope you will succeed, Ruth, but don ' t grow slim over it???? JOHN JOSEPH COFFEY I once had a sii ' cel little doll, dears The prettiest doll in the ivorld. Yes, and that isn ' t all we think that John has for there must be some reason for his going to Cleghorn or West Fitchburg every Sunday night. But outside of his being a jazz-boy he makes quite a hit with M. C. S. and when he has his rabbit ' s foot in his pocket lie sometimes squeezes through with a " C.” We also a lvise you Jolin to buy your collars a half size larger. FRANCES CATHERINE CONLON -•1 girl light hearted and content Frances is quiet in school but outside, oil, niy! She spends a great deal of her time working afternoons at the City Hall. Slie is very modest and never lets anyone know of her accomplishments. We wish you much success in your undertakings. By the way, Frances, who is " he? " MARY ANNE CONNOR In and out she goes, as blithe and gaily as a butterfly. When Mary comes along make w ay, be- cause she is always in a hurry. Being a ’mem- ber of the part-time course accounts for this. She has always been faithful to her lessons and has caused her teachers no trouble. She helps to run Boyle ' s Grocery store along with some of the clerks, and we have been told that she is a “stunner " over the phone??? ly RAYMOND CARL COTE •■I stern man and determined Another all-round athlete has been pro- duced in the form of Ray, whom we are glad to say has succeeded in winning four letters. He also handled the art department of our book in the manner that could not be e - celled. We are expecting great things of Ray and wish him luck. HENRY RICHARD COTTON My future ambition is to he a drummer. “Hari ' j’ " is always strong for a big noise and for that reason he plays the bass drum in “Brown’s Regimental Band. " He also be- lieves in culture of the voice so he is a charter member of the Glee Club. Harry has been a great help to us in the preparation of the Class Book and we appreciate it. CHARLES FRANCES COWDREY, JR. I ' ll put a girdle around the world In forty minutes. This handsome young gentleman that you sec before you is the Business Manager of our Class Book. We have to han l it to him because he sure did nobly. We also wish to add that he is a strong Republican and an ardent supporter of the Capitalists’ cause. We cannot fully explain to you just what kind of a bird he is outside of the fact that he flics south when winter approaches and comes back to our “little ne.st " in the spring. Noted for his great class spirit and his gen- erosity with his car. WILLIAM CRINGAN He is willy, he is wise, fie is a terror for his size. • ' Bill " is one of our little fellows of the In- dustrial Course. He is small but who cares for size anyway. Lorainc doesn ' t mind, so what else matters. “Belu No. 1” is always a source of trouble to " Belu No. 2 " because lie has to be careful not to step on him. T here seems to be an attraction for him in W. F. lately as he is seen there every Sunday eve- ning. If some one could time " Billie " running for the last car home we are sure some world records would be smashed. Noted for his size and THAT smile. CLYDE ANGUS CUTHBERTSON a pretty boy. When it comes to hanging around Crocker i ' icld, " Cuffy " gels the prize. His athletic abililv is not immensely fine, but we recollect he was baseball manager in his Junior year. Since then he helped take tickets and stand as an immovable cheer leader only once. “Cuffy " takes in cver ' dance and social affair from Ashby to Notown. More than one dark night he might be seen walking the long drawn out three miles from some dance to Waites Corner, arriving early the ne. t morning. The F. L. should extend its time limit, and run til! sunrise. Eh! " Cuffy. " Noted for his attendance at Crocker Field and his charming looks???? EDITH MAY CURTIS She is willy to talk with, Pretty lo walk wilh, Arid pleasant, too, lo think of. The above quotation certainly fits Edie to a " T. " With Edie around you are always sure of a good time. She certainly makes things hum in the old high school, especially at recess, but manages to get good marks besides. It is reported that a certain young man from Leominster has most of Edie’s Noted for her friendliness. HENRY EDWARD DECOURCY The loud !aii%h shows a vaciinl mind. Wliy need we build new gas-houses when there ' s so much of it around us? Henry is the little " Romeo " of the Senior class. A certain person that knows him very well tells us that Henry is such a pe-cn-l-inr boy, because all the girls are crazy over him. How’s that girls? That’s what he says behind your backs. Noted for his dancing ability. ADRIEN CHARLES DENOMME lie checked for silence. But never taxed for speech. Adrien is one of our quiet ones but we have been given to understand that he is clever at entertaining — Mayor Sullivan ' s Home Wreckers. He does not believe in coming to school on time. Noted for his remarkable ability to keep his mouth shut. JAMES COLLINS DOLAN Any rags, uJiy bones, any bottles today? From our past experiences with " Slam " and acquaintances with his " dunning” quali- ties we believe we have marked him correctly. After all, however, he is a good sort of a fellow and would do the same for anyone else. His dancing is unexcelled and he is fast becoming popular will) the ladies. THOMAS MYLES DOOLING am monarch of all I survey. Tom sure can rattle off in Civics. How happy he would be if he were at the head of the government and could run things to suit himself. He is one of the F. L.’s efficient conductors. Tom is some " Jazz Hound,” and we realize that it is only his nerve that gets him by. His diligence in German is remark- able, but throughout all this, he holds himself in a very dignified manner. JOHN JOSEPH DUNN A nd his hollow eyes groiv bright. And his fond heart almost gay. When he thinks of seeing Gertie Home once more. Jack went along the even tenor of his way for the first two years — but we are a little doubtful as to the succeeding two. He is one of the popular boys of the class, especially among the girls, but Ciert is his chief attrac- tion. He has certainly showed us he can play football. Noted for his great devotion to Gertie and his popularity. BLANCHE LEA DUVAL Bashfulness is an ornament to youth. Aside from being bashful Blanche is a good sport, and strongly supports the basketball games, especially in Leominster??? She is one of the bright lights of our class, and she makes quite a hit at being a teacher. Re- member that little song, Blanche, about, " Johnny was bashful and shy. " Blanche has a good deal of class spirit and here’s good luck to her. 21 CATHERINE ELIZABETH ENRIGHT Kay is pretty, Kay is nice, Afui when it comes to friends, Kay cuts the ice. For four long years Kay has been with us. She has been a great help to us in preparation for this book and we appreciate it. She is the source of pleasure and happiness everywhere she goes, and has a pleasing smile for ever ' - one. Most of her nights are occupied, but that ' s no fault of hers. M. C. S. and she are bosom friends. We wonder??? When it comes to dark eyes and happy disposition, however, we refer you to the above quotation. ELMER ERICKSON All great men are dying and I am feeling ill. Swede is another of our intelligent swains who is continually pulling down good marks. What? Of course he is an Industrial. He spends most of his time running the Y. M. r- a HAZEL FLORENCE FERSON Let me rest in peace. Haze! is one of our quiet (?) members who is always taking life easy. But they say that she and Caro have pretty good times outside of school. She can certainly make things hum in that si.xth hour English Class. Noted for her intimacy with Caro. THERON JASPOR FISH With knowledge stamped upon his br(ni ' . Theron’s last name is O. K. for him. He sure wins the cut glass ice-pick as a Spanish Athlete. He is. however, in every respect, a lady ' s man. and makes the rest of the fellows in the class take back seats when it comes to amusing the ladies. _ He was given the leading part in the Class Play and did remarkably well, taking the part of hero to perfection. His report card, likewise, makes him famous. THOMAS JAMES FITZGERALD Listen my people and yoit shall hear, The wonderful cornet player we have here. Tommie certainly does love to play jazz on his cornet. But that isn ' t all he loves; ask M. S. she ' ll tell you all about him. Tom has a hard time tr ’ing to dope out how he got so many .A’s??? Cheer up, Tom, the world wasn ' t made in a day: neither were marks or Noted for that everlasting smile and his ability in helping the orchestra along. LEO BERNARD FLANAG.AN One may smile and smile, and yet be a villinn. Explanation is demanded as to why It is that every Sunday evening Leo is seen stroll- ing along the boulevards of West Fitchburg. But you have to give the boy credit, for one who never studies, he gets away with it re- markably well. Observation has led us to believe that English is his favorite subject, as he pays more attention and makes less noise in the sixth hour than in any other??? 22 MILDRED F. FRAZER Silence reigns supreme. Mildred is a part-time pupil and alternates with Ruth in the Continuation School oflice. You can always find her with Ruth. She also comes from W. F. ELIZABETH MAE GARBER Silence reigns supreme Elizabeth believes in this quotation except when it comes to reading shorthand notes in Room 33. We wonder how she does it. It must be the result of A. S. O. ' s second year training?? Also she tries to convince us that she is learned by wearing those goggles. Chief occupation — promenading alone. DOROTHY GAVITTE That cordial, unaffected, most amiable presence Dorothy is a lover of music and is always ready to inform you in anything along that line. She is more talented than most of us realize. She is taking vocal lessons and may some day have world wide fame. Who knows? 1 GERTRUDE IRENE ( ' .IBSON I am always merry. Gert is one of tlie brilliant pupils in the Commercial Course. How she does it we don’t know for between books and Jimmy her time is pretty well taken up. Noted for her constancy to Jimmy and great fondness for the latest in dancing, .‘ nother one of Mr. Amiott’s stenographers. CLIFFORD GILBERT In arguing, loo, the person armed his skill-, For e ' en Ihough conquered, he could argue slill. When it comes to debating and arguing, in Clifford ' s case, it’s “Lead me to it. " If noise were pennies, he ' d be a millionaire, for it ' s no use arguing with him for he’s always right anyway. We are thinking of sending him to Charlie to argue out a two-session-a-week plan, but that would be mean, for what chance would poor Mr. C. T. have? How about last fall when he told Frank a photographer couldn’t light up the assembly hall? NORMAN J. GODBEER IVe think loo lillle Who talk ho much. Of late we have missed the little old Norm, from our ranks, but he has been called to greater things, i.e., was summoned by the F. B, C. to take up a business training there that he might more speedily take up the duties of a prominent business man. 23 ELLEN OLIVIA GROOP .1 girl, light-hearted and content I wander through the world. Ellen is a (juiet girl and takes everything as it conies. She is another part-time student and is the City Treasurer during that time. It is said that two blondes can’t agree but judging from what we hear and see, Ellen’s case is an exception, for she and T. j . are both blondes. Noted for her pink cheeks. GRACE GWVNNE Why don ' t I gro7u? Grace Is a small busy person of the Com- mercial Course who hails from up West. If it weren ' t for this " little mite " the Sentinel Office would have to close, for without her they would be as helpless as a chicken swim- ming in mid-ocean. RUDOLPH JOHN HAAPINIEMI A good heart is worth gold. “Happy " is one of the most loyal, depend- able members of the class. He is present at nearly every athletic event and is an ardent supporter. He is also a star pupil. One look at his report car l is convincing. Happy is going to be a good advertisement for the Class of 1921. Principal pastime is drumming the keys. Noted for his tendency to whisper in Physics. ELIZABETH HALL Frame your mind to mirth and merriment. " Betty " is one of the happiest girls in the class. She attends most of tlie dances and is tlierefore quite a dancer. She is very clever in the art of passing notes and talking during recitations. She has been known to study, but only on rare occasions. Noted for that wave. WALTER DA ' 1D HANNON Children should be seen, twi heard. Walter seems to abide by the above quota- tion, for little is heard of him, except when he has something to say that is worth while listening to. He is somewhat bashful; and as no fair maiden has yet won his heart, we fear he is doomed for the life of an " Old Bach.” He generally has his lessons (except that Solid Geom.) but no human being can digest that. FRANCES MARIE HASSETT Quiet she was, forsoath, not vain. If friends be credit, she has much gam. Although Frances hasn ' t much to say around school that doesn’t mean she is quiet outside. From the things one hears, she is far from it. How about that little blonde fellow from Long Island, Frances? Although most of Frances ' evenings are occupied, she manages to get A ' s and B ' s, Noted for the above quotation. 24 MARY AC.NES HASTIE Come and trip it as you go On the light fantastic toe. When jt comes to dancing, May is right there. According to the family records, Mary at the age of five, was known to hop, skip and jump ail over the South Side, so we surmise that dancing comes natural. This does not prevent her from being the favorite in Miss Pepin’s shorthand class?? However, as we understand she has quite a pull there. Mary is one of those lucky ones who grinds a week and then takes a vacation for a week. JAMES HENDERSON . ' I strawberry blonde is he. Jim is a great boy for studying. He man- ages to get A’s and B’s. We have noticed him lately in his knee pants playing the bag- pipes. If lost, he can be located by his miss- ing front tooth. " Red” seems very bashful with the girls in school but when he is up in C , Oh, boy! While not in school he is up to Fosdicks giving them a few pointers on steam engines. RUTH MABEL HOOPER A bright, little lass from Shirley. Without Ruth we don ' t see how Hazel could live through the sixth hour English class in Room 25. She surely does take good care of her?? We hear that Marion and she are planning to keep " bachelor girls” apart- ments when they get older. But we have our doubts. BERNARD ALOYSIUS MORGAN Winter has a joy for me. “Bun” is one of our notable pedestrians. He resides in the West End (don ' t cher know). He has worn a good path from West through liis daily walk to school and is one of the F. L. ' s most dangerous competitors. He is also a wonderful dreamer of winter. “Give me snow and a pair of skis and let the rest of the world roll by. " Morgan has his eye on some girl in the fifth hour Latin class. Hor- rors, Bernard! We take it all back. ( Noted for his hiking trips and keeping away from the girls. LYDIA HAUSCHILD My chief pleasure lies in my work. Lydia certainly does love to study. We expect to see her at the head of some large business concern — or maybe Mayor of the city. You never can tell. Noted for her shyness towards her teachers. GARDNER CUMMINGS HUDSON ' ■ am Sir Oracle and when I ope ' my mouth Let no dog bark. " When brightness was given out Gardner was in the front row and that’s all we ' ve heard ever since. Every now and then we Itear his voice peal forth from the stage with the force of a gas house explosion, only filled with hot air. He edited the two editions of the Red and Grey, and showed his business ability by raising the price ten cents to cover the costs of those much-advertised BEAUTIFUL cuts. He is also quite an actor as he has appeared in two plays this year, making a hit in both. 25 ESTHER EDITH HUKARI I kno o you are full of good niture. Esther is much interested in music and is quite a singer. She hopes to enter N. E. Conservatory of Music and e.xpects to be an- other Geraldine Farrar. Good luck to you, Esther. But we learn that music is not all she is interested in. A certain up-town drug store has quite an attraction for her, and we hear she is an expert cook. SCOTT ARTHUR HUTCHINSON Ah, but he admits of no parallel. One busy man is “Scotty. " Business man- ager of the “Red and Gray,” Class Book com- mittee, Editor of the 3rd Hour Math, paper, run much to Mr. Howe ' s embarrassment, are a few of the many things which take his time — when “she " is not around. He is another of those Seniors who are interested in certain Juniors. She will miss him vcr ’ much when he leaves. However, “Scotty” e.xpects to make F. H. S. immortal when he gets to Dartmouth. He has already made the Senior Latin Class famous by being its standby — when the others recite. Noted for his business appearance. TOIVO JALKO .All dressed up and no place to go. The aristocrat of the Industrial Course is Toivo. (Oftentimes we see him in attendance at dances and you should see the beauties he lands. However, he pulls down good marks and that is all that is necessary in this beloved high school.. Noted for his perseverance in the right. BERXHART AINE JARVELA Intelligence and courtesy are sometimes combined. Another guy who tries to work in a shop ever ’ other week. However, we unrierstand that he has learned his trade thoroughly. We expect to see him the leading machinist in the city some day. Noted for that happy smile. DAVID JASSPON Old as I am, for ladies ' love unfit, The power of beauty, ! remember yet. To pronounce David’s last name you have to think of an orchestra and the two words " jazz” and " on” — in the meantime bearing in mind that the " p” is silent as the " k” in soup. David is without doubt the best German scholar in the school (it ' s an inheri- tance). Oftentimes, do you see David going down Main Street driving some kind of u contraption that is not unlike — in some re- spects — a baby carriage and yet resembles a locomotive. But still David shows signs of one day being a, or, the leading business man of Cleghorn. BRUNO WILLIAM JOHNSON A rascally, yea — forsooth, knave. " Ban " came to us four years ago and has stuck with us ever since. He delights in grabbing Mr. Hunter’s goat. His activities in Room 8 make him " con- spicuous.” 26 ELSA ALFREDA JOHNSON Yon are always kind, and it is a pleasure to talk to you. Elsa is fond of all athletics, especially basketball, and is also a member of the Glee Club. She and Betty can supply us with plenty of am usement. Oh, for her pleasant manners, many friends, and the good times we all have in her company. LEMPI MARIA JOKINEN She looks innoccfil but you never can tell. Lempi seems to be a quiet girl who will talk to no one but her sister. We hear she is a fre- quent visitor in a neighboring city. We wonder what the attraction is. LILY IDA JOKINEN Lily is Lempi’s sister and is also quiet in school. But we hear she can make a lot of noise outside of school. She, like her sister, has some attraction in Gardner. Noted for her natural curly (?) hair. MARION HOLDEN JUBR Beauty’s ensign yet, Is crimson in thy lips, A ml in thy cheek. Although Mnrion hails from Shirley, m’c can forgive her for tliis. She has been pretty cpiiet all (luring her four years so we don ' t know much about he--. But no news is good Noted for her pretty blush. HELEN IRENE KEATING High in stature and in rank. Helen works quietly, but nevertheless ac- complishes things. Last year she surprised us all and proved her worth by carrying off tlie biology prize. Since then she has resumed her quiet position but now we have an eye on her as we know what to e.xpect. How about it, Helen? Noted for her (juiet manner. PHILIP JAMES KEATING .4 man who blushes is never a brute. Phil liails from W. I ' , and would never think of coming to school without his lessons prepared. We hear that “Prof. " Hunter has offered to finance him on vocal lessons as he hits “high C " every morning in Room 7. Mike otherwise known as the “Brute " has a great habit of testing his new inventions on Spillcr. We know his future success is as- sured. Noted for his A ' s and B ' s. 27 JOHN THOMAS KELLEHER Hmv dear to my heart are the scenes of childhood. " Kelley " alias “Jiggs” is a standby of all that concerns W. F. Ask " Horp.” he knows. Kelley never seems to hurry much around school but they say he is pretty good at sweeping floors and shaking sodas (never dice) at W. F. drug store. We hear he has great ambitions, but we hope they rise higher than the “mudhole. " " Kelley” has some good points, however, and uses his head for some- thing more than a hat rack. He ha staken up dancing lessons now, so watch out. Some day we expect to sec him a druggist. Noted for his ability in Math, and Physics. MILDRED WINSLOW KLEIN The angel of the school. Mildred has been an honor pupil ever since she entered the High School. She was as associate writer of the " Pilgrim Masque” and her success is assured wherever she may go. .‘ s a member of the French and Dramatic Clubs she did much for their success. But, we must not forget to mention her various assortment of beau.v (bows). ANNETTE MARIE LABARGE Tin just brimming with pep. Annette is Bernie ' s twin and a lively mem- ber of our shorthand class. She certainly makes things hum whenever she is around. Rumor has it that she is quite interested in a " Junior.” We wonder who is he. Noted for her pink cheeks. BERNADETTE MARION LABARGE Hffw dear to my heart are the scenes nj my child- hood. That I spent with that Junior in Room thirty- four. ■‘Bernie " spends most of her time showing off her brilliancy in the fifth hour shorthand class. Between lessons, Sinionds, and that little Junior, she is kept pretty busy. Never mind, Bernie. some day when you have a little office of your own you’ll find the right EINAR JOHN LAIHO Like two men rolled into one. “Fat " is under Mr. Hunter’s guiding hand and of course is an Industrial. He distin- guished himself on the gridiron last year by showing a tendency to get his football togs all mud. Dr. McMurray is one of his bosom friends, as he used ' to have the job of patching him up after the game. He will make Colby famous. CARO LOUISE LAWRENCE chatter the whole day long. Caro is certainly there with the chatter. She showed some good sense by graduating with our class. She spends considerable time in writing poems — we wonder why. Noted for that " Sailor Boy. " 28 MARGARET DURKEE LELAND A haughty and proud Miss, is she. Margaret certainly would give people this impression when they first come in contact with her but we hear that she is not half so bad after you once know her. She spends all of her time studying so thereby we hear very little from her. except when she is trying to persuade you that she is always right. Noted for her height and beauty. THEODORE LINDSTROM OJf with his head. Theodore is one of our quiet members and keeps the Putnam Machine Company running every other week. He can be seen driving the school barge each morning. By the looks of those steeds, Theo, they must have been imported from Russia. He has been a great help to our orchestra with his clarinet. GRACE NAOMI LITTLEHALE Sweet and silent is her nature. A quiet little maid of much intellect. Grace is the vice-president of the French Club and was a very petite " Rosalie, " in the French play. She can be seen any Sunday afternoon walking along the boulevards of Fitchburg with Orlando. Noted for her pull in Room 27. RACHEL LOTHROP There is somclhing very winning in Iter haitglily manner. Rachel, like many other members of our class, is very fond of a good time, but not so fond of studying. She is pleasant to all, especially so to a select few. Fritz will tell you that she’s the kind of girl one likes, and we won’t dispute him. Member of Dramatic and French Clubs. DOROTHY WHIPPLE LOWE Her bcanty, grace and power Wrought as a rhann upon them. Although Dorothy has been with us only one year she has won many friends. She is very popular with girls and boys. Why shouldn ' t she be? She is one of our best stu- dents, can speak well, and is as fond of fun as any of us. ESTHER ALENA LUNDBERG Who says lillle, has little to ans uer for. Esther is a part-time student and works at the Parkhill every other week. She is always quiet at school but we hear she has a " steady.” Noted for her meek manner. 29 MARY MADLYN MALONEY 6 ' o ifr, steadfast and demure. Madlyn is one of our slender blondes, who hasn’t very much to say. But nevertheless, in spite of her quietness she has a very keen sense of humor. Wherever you see Madlyn you’ll see -•Mice. She is also one of our French sharks. Noted for her lovely hair and quiet manner. ELLEN Jl ' LlA MANNIX Let me be xvilh the opposite sc.v. Ellen is surely a shark??? in shorthand. In Civics she amuses her neighbors by witty siiyings and tries to make M. C. S. think she knows the answer by going through a lot of " wild motions.” Noted for her jolly disposition and witty reniarks. RUTH ELIZABETH MARSHALL Ever loyal, ever true, To the task she has to do. Ruth is certainly a cheerful person, ask him, he knows. Aithough she and Milly K are quiet around school they arc very dif- ferent Sunday nights. How about those boulevards up W. F.. Ruth?? KATHRYN AGNES McCAULIFF What was I pul into the world for, If it were nol to talk. If you are ever in need of information, go to Kathryn, for she is some talker and likes to use her tongue almost better than anything else, except playing tennis and judging from the way she plays we guess she can do it. She acts as Mr. Woodbury’s private secretary every other week. Noted for her pretty (?) hairdress and smiles. GERTRUDE LORETTA McCORMICK He floats upon the river of her thoughts. When it comes to making up excuses for being late, Gert is there, so C. T. would say. We have nothing against her for that, es- pecially since she is but one of many such from W. F. She has not been over anxious with studying, but of course, the Lyric holds part of lier attention. Noted for her blush and — and — cr — ah — acquaintance with — er — him. JULIA FRANCES McDONOUGH She is small, but oh, my? " Julie” or " Sunshine” as she is generally called is certainly a busy person. Besides being an efficient stenographer, she spends a great deal of her time with L. R. Is it the cars (in the garage) or is it his ways, Julie? Noted for that expression, “Who told you?” 30 JOHN LEO McMANUS The belter part of valor is distinction. " Johnny” is one of our little " fellers.” He believes in quality rather than quantity. He is quite a poet, but he can ' t help it. We are afraid he is going to be a politician for he has had spirited debates with Hudson on party questions. He is said to be Longfellow’s only rival, so there is some hope for him. LEO FRANCIS McMANUS One of the red lights, yon know. Yes, in regard to girls. He is always seen. But! when friend Leo entered our renowned class as a freshman, we thought the strain of studying and coming the long distance from W. F. would be too much for him. How- ever, the crowded condition of the 7.45 F. L. car has hardened him. We are surprised that he has taken such an interest in girls. Taking the Commercial Course as he does, Madeline and others attract him. And they are Juniors! He ran the athletic department of the " Red and Gray” to perfection, and also pulled good marks. Noted for his boisterous laughing at recess. But that haircomb, Oh! OSCAR FREDERICK MERCIER Mercier is one of those people who believe in being seen and not heard. We fear he is developing into a math, shark. At any rate he is a member of " Popper " Howe’s fifth hour math, class. He also loves (?) the ladies. Noted fur his silence and good will to all. FAV VIOLET METCALF 0»e of our nohlesf, our 7nosl valorous. Honest and most obedient. Fay is one of our fellow students who knows ho_w to pull those much desired A’s. She is quiet and unassuming, but well liked by all who know her. Noted for her excellent scholarship. MILDRED MEYER Men may come and men may go, But I talk on forever. When Mildred is near, we are always well aware of the fact, but it’s a good idea to have a ready How of conversjition, isn ' t it? iil- dred surely does love to interrupt a certain class, sixth hour, though. Chief occupation — talking. BEATRICE MIRIAM MICHELMAN The sun shines East The sun shines MVi7, But in that shoe store. My loi ' e shines best. How about this Trix, is it not true? We all wonder why it is she buys her shoes down near the Majestic, now we know. Every Wednesday you can see her promanading the Summer Street boulevard with L. 31 GERTRUDE EDNA MIKKOLA Her voice was soft and sweet. We don’t see much of Gertrude for she is another part-time student but from what we he y she is a good girl. She has a sweet little voice and likes to sing. We hope to hear her as a famous singer some time in the near future. WILLIAM C.ARETH MILLER Time, let not advatUage slip. Bill is one of our quiet ones. He believes in speaking only when spoken to. He is a nice boy and never tricks the teachers. He occupies a seat in “Popper” Howe ' s con- densed fifth hour math, class. Nevertheless, he usually takes hojne a good report card. Noted for his noise????? K.VmLEEN HILDRETH MINER ' Tis the mitid that makes the body rich. When it comes to raising the “(.)ld Harry” Kathleen is right there, so they tell us down in Shirley. Kathleen likes to attend the dances in Ayer. We wonder why this is? During her leisure hours she runs the tele- phone office down in Shirley and we hear that only Ayer gets good service. Is this true, Kathleen? GERTRUDE EMMA MINNICH Happy am 1, from care I ' m free. Why aren ' t they all contented like mel (iert lias made herself conspicuous as class stenograplier. She is very popular every- where she goes, but mostly with J. D., and has a pleasant smile. We wonder what the class would do without her? Noted for her constancy to Jack. JOHN ARTHUR MOILANEN A warrior brave with curly hair. Johnie sure is a bear with the ladies and oh, Ijoy! that wavy hair. Out riding in Frank’s car he sure does get the feminine waves, yet he couldn’t agree with C. T. on the way to lead cheers. As assistant business manager of the Class Book he was right there with the goods. Noted for his liking for Juniors as well as for his gold teeth and wav ’ hair. ELIZABETH HELEN MORAN I live for self and self only. Elizabeth is one of the trio. Wherever you see her, you’ll see Bee and Helen. She cer- tainly makes things lively in 24 the fifth period. Elizabeth always has her own point of view. She certainly would make good as a debater. Noted for her " I should worry” e. pression. 32 HELEN ELIZABETH MORAN Some day I ' ll be a stenographer. Helen does try so hard to be good but in that fifth hour shorthand class the tempta- tion is too great. When she and Elizabeth get together — good-bye books. She can also tell you about that trip to Washington this spring. Noted for her constancy to Elizabeth. MARY LUCILLE MORAN Silence in a woman is like speech in a man. Deny it who can. Mary has managed to keep quiet in school but we understand she is capable of raising a rumpus outside when the conditions de- mand it. W’e hear she is fond of music and expect her future will be in this line. ALICE JANE MURPHY A pretty girl, most dear and taking. Now Alice has so many good points that we don’t know where to begin. First of all, she gives life to the class. Her engaging per- sonality has won her many friends. She is also an inseparable pal of M. M. Noted for her stylish clothes. MARGARET MARY MURRAY Children should be seen and not heard. " Marcly” believes it and surely lives up to it while in school. While in our midst she is very quiet but rumors have leaked down from up West. She lias lots of good wit if she wants TOIVO ILMARI MYLLYKANGAS Music hath charms. When it comes to singing and the one who is leading tenor of the Class of 1921, we im- mediately place into the limelight Toivo Ilmari Myllykangas. He has certainly profited by Mr. Coffin’s instructions at the Choral Society, and takes great delight imi- tating the girls. Without doubt, his future career in that line is assured, but too often is he brought back to earth by the well known phrase: " Myllykangas, prove the next propo- sition, " which he does — sometimes. MILDRED EDITH NELSON So cheerful of spirit and guiltless of affectation. Mildred is one of those dutiful members who plays for us as we march into assembly everj’ morning. She and her fiddle are in- separable companions. She is also fond of athletics and does well in all of them, but e.xcells in running the three-legged race. 33 BEATRICE ISABELLA NICHOLS One of our great politicians. It would seem rather odd to see “Bee " with- out also seeing Elizabeth and Helen. We hear that since that trip to Washington she has decided to be Attorney (ioodfellow’s successor. She can also sing and helped greatly in the chorus of the Fitchburg Choral this spring. Noted for her height. HELEN CLAIRE NOLAN Come day, go day, [ wish it were Sunday. Worry? Never. Claire is a happy-go- lucky of the part-time course. Nevertheless, she delights in “jazz. " and wearing tortoise- shell glasses. How about it? Her brilliant recitations the fourth hour always make a hit. She also helps run a real estate office in the afternoon. ERNEST ARTHUR NOURIE .1 modest man who needs no praise. " Ernie” helps to keep the Industrial Course on its feet. He made his letters in football and baseball. He was also our star goal kicker. There seems to be a great attraction for Ernie on Cedar Street. How about " Billie " and how is she these days? Ernie used to spend his spare time at the Universal Grind- ing Company but flow he is one of Professor Hunter ' s machine instructors. Noted for his athletic ability. FRANCIS JOSEPH O ' CONNOR . Iltus neglecting, xvordly ends, all dedicated, To closeness and the bettering of my mind. " Funsy” is a very close friend of Orlando; and studies to Francis are the last things in the world to be thought about. He is at oresent confining all his efforts in running " .Van Dykes " and wc hear he is going to Holy Cross next year. Wc all surely do wish him the best of luck. Noted for his absence at recess. HELEN MARY O ' CONNOR Business before pleasure. Oh, Helen, why is it you do delight in tor- menting Miss Sherwin so? For really she is very considerate in giving you the " honored chair” at the next table. Maybe she thinks the two " H. S.’s” are a little too chatty with you. Helen is a member of the famous part- time Division .A course. We understand she is quite a business asset to jlawyer Kelliher. Helen is one of M. C. S. sharks; she has a wonderful memory’, so Miss Smith thinks. Anyway she knows how to pull the marks. JOSEPH THOMAS O’DONNELL Laugh and the world laughs with you. One of the bright and shining lights of W. H. D. ' s fifth hour Solid Cieom. Class is our friend Joe, better known as " Audacious.” But although his wit does not meet the heart of W. H. D., nevertheless it gets him by in other classes. From all appearances here in school the girls do not occupy any important place in Joe’s mind, but they say you ' d be surprised if you knew him as well as some do. Joe made his football letter and we hear that he is headed for Wentworth and we know everyone wishes him luck. Favorite expression " Ease off. " Noted for his animated laugh. 34 AARO HENRY OTTERSON None could quicker pilch a ton Nor draw a furrer slraighler. In our class we have all kinds, sizes, and shapes of mortals, so now we will introduce to you our friend Aaro, our tallest. Often- times you see him in deep consultation with Prof. Brown over some new cow remedy, or his latest invention of wooden legs for chickens. It is quite evident, however, that he has learned to throw a good line as we notice that he pulls down those much coveted A’s in Civics. BOARDMAN RAYMOND PARKHURST Give thy thoughts no tongue. We couldn ' t characterize " Boardy” as a talking machine, but " still waters run deep” so wc suspect " Boardy” thinks a little. At least we hope so. In class we have to look around twice to see if he is there, for never a needless word escapes hi.s lips. However, we wish we had a few more who minded their own Inisiness as " Boardy” does We forgot to mention he contes from the West End so that prob’ly accounts for it. Chief occtipation — walking the streets and working a little as a grocer. MARJORY CYNTHIA PEABODY She loves her piano. Marjory does her best to make us keep time when going to and from Assembly but I am afraid wc don ' t re.spond very well. Nevertheless, she always seems very friendly toward all of us, and has a great many friends. She is planning to go to Smith next year. Her music essay won her first prize. MAY JOSEPHINE PERAULT Her quiet and unassuming manner Brings forth her pleasing ways. Althoiigli May doesn’t have nnirli to say she manages to liavc a great many friends. VVe wonder why it was that Miss ' Sherwin would persist in having May study in Room 26. E ' en though May hasn’t much to say to us all, she manages to entertain Fair very well. At least that ' s what Fair tells us and we can certainly believe it. Noted for her constancy to F. S. MARTHA WINIFRED PHINNEY A tennis racket is her favorite instrument. Martha is certainly a tennis shark. She spends practically all summer on the Holt Street tennis court and we hear that she has lost her heart to a certain little fellow. But then we can’t blame her for that little thing. When it comes to getting A’s and B ' s you will always see Martha heading the list. Noted for that unassuming manner. THEODORE ABRAM PIERCE Give every man thine ear, but frw thy voice. " Teddy " does not say ver ' much but he must think occasionally for he pulls some pretty good marks. He belongs to " Popper " Howe ' s fifth hour math, class. He lives down near the Fair Grounds but it ' s not his fault. Noted for his ability to dodge all worries. 35 WALTER CLARENCE POLSON Work before pleasure. As a member of the baseball and basket bal teams Walter is right there with bells, mid he sure does make things hum in Room 27, when it comes to athletic dues, drives, etc. He has for a few months been associated with Kennedy ' s Butler Company, Inc., but resigned on account of ill health. However, he generally has lus lessons, and therefore fits in pretty strong with the faculty. He has been elected captain of the Senior Relay Team, and in him we place our hopes. BONNIEBESS ALBERTA i’OWNEY Around her shone The light of love, the purity of grace. Just a wee sweet little girl is Bonnie. She IS rather quiet in school but knows how to have a good time. She has a hard time trying to please Miss Pepin. Whenever Miss Lom- bard wants to hear a good poem she calls on Bonnie to read hers. We expect great things from her in the line of [wetry. Her pleasing ways have won for her many friends. EDITH JEMINA PROCTOR A maiden fair with coal black hair. . " s a heroine in our Class Play she sure did it up brown. .Although usually very quiet, she is known to have been quite gay at times. She has shown quite a liking for new ' 21 members from C. A. for some lime past. Noted for her English recitations and demure ways. MERTON EUGENE PROCTOR Lfi the world slide, what care I. The man of many names is one of the Industrial students. He spends hours trying to master the Finn language. He has been successful to a certain degree??? Wlien not in school he is one of Mr. Fosdick’s right hand mechanics. Now we know where those high-priced cigars come from ' ‘Deamie. " He has been seen in Cleghorn frequently of late attending the Rambeau??? Notetl as Huckle- berry Finn’s successor. VIENNA MADLYN RAATIKAINIEN Vc know a lady, who loves to pick romances lo puces. Oh! Vienna, why did you pick John Alden and Priscilla’s romance to pieces. But then the author had no business stretching his imagination so, did he? You certainly can take the prize for that speech. We expect to see Vienna at the head of the Motion Picture Censor. Vienna is a good addition to any school. LAURl JOHN RAJALA A close month catches no flies. “Raja " is another of Opie’s side kicks. He delights in drawing gears up in Professor Brown ' s room. He is especially fond of study. He has done much for the success of the Class Book and is a willing and loyal worker. 36 HAROLD AGUSTINE REILLY My favorite study is girls. ‘‘Girls ' ’arc the foremost thought in Harold ' s bright young life, and he sure does fit pretty strong with the fair sex. He is generally seen by the library at recess confiding his troubles to Eleanor. Although very busy with his lady friends, Harold finds time now and then to drop in at his place of business at May- berr ' ’s. And oh boy, when it comes lo •‘Jazz,’’ they say Harold is right there. How about the skyscrapers in Clinton, Harold? Noted for his above mentioned “Drag with the girls.” Favorite- expression “Can’t, I get a date to-night.” JEANNETTE HERNIMIE RICHARD A little maid hut wondrotis wise. Jeannette often gets lost in the crowd be- cause of her petite size. We hear t hat she is invaluable down at .Angel’s. She is noted for being M. C. S.’s private secretary. Chief occupation — running a typewriter. LILY ELIZABETH RINQUIST The best humored and kindest hearted creature Lily is one of those rare people who is never worried and never worries other people. She has a kind word for everyone. She has many friends, but is most often seen with Mildred Nelson. She lias a quiet and unas- suming manner, and a friendly disposition. JOHN PHILLIP RIORDAN Your (iclions leave no room for doubt, That your head is wood, inside and out. “Donkey” is an industrial, and is usually with us every week. He is always picking on some one, usually Keating in Room 8. He is also a great friend of Miss Haskins, and he seems to do nothing but draw his breath and his pay. SADIE DOROTHY ROME A Utile, bright-eyed girl. Sadie ' s bright smile has shone here for four years. She must be a very busy person for she is always hurrying about and talking energetically. Noted for the curly locks. WALTER FAIRBANKS SAWYER Playing without pomp, A nd rich wiihout a slunv. Yes, we are glad to say that of such a foot- ball player as Fair. As captain of the grid- iron team he showed fine leadership. Fair can never be rated as a talking-machine but he does like to show-off in front of May. Surely no one would have that against him. We hear that he is bound for Dartmouth ne. t year. We wish you scucess Fair. Noted for his frequency with May. 37 LORRAIN CATHERINE SCHUDER .‘1 demure little miss was she. VVe wonder why it is that so many of West Fitchburg’s inhabitants are so quiet. At least Lorrain has proven herself to be so while in school but she has been seen quite often with Billy so it is hard telling. She is fond of athletics especially basketball. ERNEST SECINO “Ernie” is one of those lucky fellows whose constitution permits him to study now and then. Therefore he frequently lias his les- sons (except Civics). But for all that we had many good times in Ernie’s Gym. Noted for his studious nature??? HELEN AMANDA SEPPALA Short of stature, modest of nature. To look at her you might think Helen was bashful but she is far from it. When not in school she helps to run an uptown restaurant. Ever ’ other week Helen is kept busy deliver- ing daily mail from the office. She helps Mr. Woodbury mightily. HELEN BERNADINE SHEA Thy smile becomes thee well. Helen is one of Josie ' s co-partners in teaching I)iipils how to typewrite without looking at the keyboard. She is always happy and keeps her classes in a cheerful mode. She pretends she has no love affairs but we heard about Leon. How about it, Helen? HELENA ELIZABETH SHEA Ever loyal and ever true. The above suits Lena to a “T. " She is one of the “lucky ones” taking the part-time course. If there is anything about books you want to know just ask Lena. She is second to Bertha in efficiency. What ' s all this we hear about Jock, Lena? Well, he’s a nice fellow — we don’t blame you. As the weather is so unsettled we ' d advise you to wear your hat to the next dance. Ahem! We expect to sec Lena head librarian at the Fitchburg Library some day. LILLIAN EDITH SMITH Who loves not knoivlcdge? Lillian is one of those rare students whose greatest pleasure is in getting their lessons well. She always finds what she seeks for — knowledge.. If all were like Lillian, the teach- ers would have nothing to do. She gave us an idea of the " path” she is to take in life, from the part she played in “Quits. " Noted for her .A ' s. 38 RUBY CHANDLER SPENCER So brimful of this merry, vigorous life. ' Ruby has a pleasant smile for everyone. She has proven herself capalile of getting some good marks. When it comes to Chem- istry and Sewing she can ' t be beat. By the way. Ruby, who are the two gentlemen that escort you home from church every Sunday evening? Yes we know 07ic is your brother, but the other ? ALBERT ROBERT SPILLER Give me a fax-trot A nd let me jazz. Albert may be found in the Armory as he is one of our rooted militia men. Spike is also chief scene shifter for the community players. He spends his summer down at Whalom and expects to be chief candy maker for the city some day. He spends his useful days in W. F. but since he has moved to the city he still keeps that longing for West F. We surmise a girl. Ask Pop he knows. Noted for his appearance. MARION BURBANK STEVENS Quiet and shy, but oh me, oh myl As the live wire of 26, Marion wins the C. G., and as for her inconsistency towards Juniors and ' 20 members nothing need be said. For some time past she has been one of W. J. D.’s favorites. Noted for her vamp- ish eyes, deceiving manner, and great fond- ness for dancing. MARGARET LEE STROPE ,-l rival of Gale Henry ' s. Miirgaret aiui Iier sister are twins and it is certainly very hard to tell them apart. Vhy even Davis claims that one night he has one sister .and another night the other. This must be very confusmg for poor Allan, and he certainly has our sympathy. Although she hasn’t very much to sity, we hear that she is ver ' different when with Davis. WINIFRED STROPE Why xvas I not rich instead of handsome Winifred is as much like her sister as two peas in a pod. It must be very confusing for the teachers when it comes marking time but then they are both smart. So why worn,-? We hear that Winifred is engaged but as yet she has not enlightened us any. IRENE CECELIA SULLIVAN To know “Sully” is to love her. Irene is one of our great debaters. She loves an argument. Just drop in to 43 any fourth hour and hear her hold her own with R. S. F. Isn’t it funny Irene, how Mr. Frel- lick always agrees that you and Frances are both right.

Dagmar is our librarian and makes a prac- tice of working overtime distributing! books to the Freshmen. She is quite poetic and succeeded in getting one of her works into the " Red and Gray.” One of M. C. S. ' s Civics sharks. SAVELA SVRJAI.A .1 stalwart man tons he. quiet lad whose talent lies in his pen, draws something more than good marks. He obtains the goodwill of the teachers, l)Ut how he does it is more than we can under- stand. Noted for his quiet unobtrusivencss. ANDREW FRANCIS TAMBEAU Give me the moonlight and Rive me the girl. " Baron " seems to be the life of the Indus- trial class. Between he and Criugan they keep the Industrial Course well supplied with jokes. He is a frequent visitor at the Alpine Golf Club, not playing golf, however. " Baron " is not working at present, being unable to find a position suitable for a man of his ability. Studying is the least of his worries, for girls occu()y most of his attention. AMY GENEVA THATCHER As innocent, and fair As one of oiir best story-tellers, and Eng- lish ‘‘sharks,’ ' this tall, fair lady cannot be excelled. Although one cannot always judge by appearances we guess she isn ' t too quiet, for she loves to dance [)assing well. Noted for her studiousness. RUTH CONSTANCE VINCENT Wide is the f’lilf between me and man. Ruth is a very conscientious person who carries her books in a noticeable bag. How- ever, she keeps us amused by her bright remarks. She is also known to have a weak- ness for detective stories. PAULINE FRANCES WALDRON Fun has no limits. " I’olly” is a lively member of our class. Whenever she is near you can expect fun. Lately Polly has been running off to Swanip- scott every vacation. We wonder why??? Do you call him Bill or Willie, Polly? Ask Polly about that Webster Basketball game, she can tell you a lot about it. We hear that she is thinking of becoming a nurse and we wish her the best of luck. Chief occupation answering letters to “Bill. " 40 ANDREW B, WALKER All difficulties arc hut easy when they arc known. “Andy " is, as a rule, very quiet. He bothers only those who bother him. How- ever, he is one of the bright lights of “Popper " Howe ' s decomposed fifth hour Math. Class. He is often seen driving a thing — e.xcuse us — a Ford. Andy sure is a woman-hater, but we think he will come out of it all right. We are told of liis attempt to run in opposition to Benny I ' ranklin, in his ideas of printing. WILLIAM ANDERSON WALKER I ' m a Jazz Baby. Absolutely hopeless. It would sure take a world beater to show this bird where he gets off. He has mastered the violin but when it comes to playing the trombone we got to hand him the fur-lined lemon. Mr. Hunter reluctantly admits that some day “Wee Willie " is sure to succeed him as Industrial Instructor. We don ' t know where he lives but it must be Winter Street by the way he sticks around. Favorite pastime — developing lung power on his trombone. Mary watson What comes in small packages} Mary is one of the peewees of our honorable class. Although she is the only girl who takes the Tech course she manages to get along pretty well, but leave that to Mary. Noted for her size and her I ' rench notebook. AILI AGDA WIKSTEDT .1 boiinie maid was she. As for basketball and baseball, Aili is the only girl who can hold her own to perfection. She proves it in her instructor’s job on the playground. Her future is secured by her admission to the Sargent School. She can act, too, as evidenced by her part in the play, Commercial-Industrial night. Noted as an athlete. LAHJA WIKSTEDT Lahja is a part-time pupil and teaches type- writing every other week. She is quiet in school but from what we hear she is not so outside of school. Site is going to start business college when she graduates. JULIA WVOMA WOLF She had a frank and easy way with her, that was very taking. Julia is one of those girls from Shirley who rightly thinks there is no place like F. H. S. Her friendship with Miss Smith and knowl- edge of Civics, is, perhaps, partly due to her trip to Washington last year. Perhaps it is a good plan to go to Washington first and study Civics later. 41 LOIS EFFIE WORSTER Her lime she spends in studies deep. Lois is one of our part-time members who causes no trouble to anyone. However, we’ve heard she can raise the “Old Harry’’ when away from “Alma Mater. " They say Lois has a weak spot for the " opposite sex.’’ How about it, Walter? MADELYN GERTRUDE WYMAN Ilmv blithely she rides to the hunting of man. “Mad” is a lively member of our illustrious class and has certainly done her share to make our plays and sports successful. Wc hear that the hockey team couldn ' t gel along without her. Noted for her winsome personality. RUTH MELLOR BRIGGS Give thy thoughts no longue. Is it possible? senior girl found un- talkative, puffless and beribboned. Oh time! Oh custom! {per W. J. D. ) Well such a girl is. We have nothing against her for that, so we only gape. Though her rule is silence, first hour English Class in 22 had to sit back one day, when in the process of a debate she got up. Well, she made up for her four years of silence in her oratorical ability. That natural possession of wonten will show itself sometime. Some one said she was seen at a dance. However, she gets good marks and does not mind up-to- date fashions. Noted for her shrug and silent manner. HARRY ROBERT COSGROVE Oh, he ' s a j-a-z-z h-a-b-y. Hnrry is right there when it comes to dancing, and can he dance?? Just watch him and see for yourself. We expect to see him dancing in Russia some day. Harry ' certainly displays the latest styles in fashion, but we suppose that has to do with his working in Payson ' s. As a story writer, he is Haw- thorne’s rival. Noted for his friendly attitude toward eveiy ' one. JAMES FALLON ' improve with age. James certainly has a great line; ask Dunn. He certainly would make a good preacher, but then, he has a business wbich is equally as profitable — the milk wagon. He does love to argue with his teachers, especi- ally ' A. D. Noted for his ambition as an actor. WILLIAM PUTNAM FARRAR Where love is great the litllcsl doubts are fears. " Bill " is the leading lady’s man in the class. He has a different girl every week. Perhaps he likes variety’. And just think of it. Bill uses vaseline to keep his hair in place. He likes everything in school with the e.xception of his studies. When it comes to knowledge of electricity ' , Bill has us all trimmed. Noted for his ability to advise real electri- cians. 42 EDMUND JOSEPH FITZGERALD Unhappy sex whose beauty is your snore. Your " trap” Fitz we should say. Edmund passes or tries to pass much of his time with the fair sex. Some day we expect to see him writing a book entitled, ‘‘Love Pang.s and Advice to Young Men,’’ or he might be ap- pointed, on account of his experience, as Mildred Champagne. Noted for his walk and love for that W. F. girl. JOHN IRVING McDowell He wears the rose of youth upon his cheek. " Mac” may be small, but we can say’ a lot of good things about him. For one thing, he is a very active young chap — holds down two newspaper jobs, and studies??? every night, A good record say we. If there is a quarrel in school, look for " Mac " in the center. Me has a good lot of school spirit mingled with the hot air he endeavors to warn our school with. When the class needs men for the relay’ team or anything else, ‘‘.Mac’’ is always there. For this reason we all like him. Chief occupation— squabbling. Noted for the expression " Come on, get FREDERICK HOLMES PEABODY A merry heart goes all the day. ‘‘Fritz” is one of those ' happy-go-lucky fellows; nothing ever seems to worry him, even his lessons. When he is not with Fair- banks he is with Rachel — considerable of the former and very much of the latter. How- ever, he proved to be a good football play’er last fall. Noted for those two famous outbursts: " no-o-’m” and " yes-’m.” MILDRED ROSS 1 believe in variety. Who is it that has largely helped to make our dances a success? Why it is Milly. Know her? Milly did not care about study- ing so took a month’s vacation. How about It Milly We wish to add that Milly ought to be in Washington as there seems to be something about her that attracts Presidents. DONALD ALEXANDER SHAW 0h ye gods, ye gods, j fust I endure all litis} We ' re sorry to say, Don, that we’re in the same predicament as you are and can see no possible way of getting out of it until we have our diploma in our hand. But cheer up, it could be worse. We have to admit, Don, that your’e some little heart breaker; but then, it must be your environment. It seems that all the people over your wav are like that. STANLEY PAGE WHEELER Be patient for the world is broad and wide. " Seth” surely does believe in the above quotation at least from the standpoint of studying. If school did not require any mental exertion he would consider it a fine place. Stanley has a position as brakeman on a soda fountain. We often wonder if he knows what worr ' is. Noted for his ability to pull good marks??? 43 Sayings — Wise and Otherwise As poor as a church mouse .... As thin as a rail As fat as a porpoise As rough as a gale . . . ! !

The domestic trials of Brook-Hoskyn, the ardent wooing of Mrs. Poskett. and her rather unwilling victim, Si r Peter Antrobus. will always be pleasantly remembered, and the class is proud of its actors and actresses. The play was given twice, on Friday and Saturday. May twenty and twenty-one, and both performances were witnessed by capacity audiences. Music was furnished on both evenings by the High School Orchestra under Miss Alice R. Pepin. Miss Helen F. Stratton had charge of the play, and she was responsible for the larger part of its success. The elaborate costumes and movable scenery were under the direction of Miss Hoyt and Miss Sherwin. “Pomander Walk” is an English play, written by Louis N. Parker. The scene is in Cheswick, England, and the time is 1805. It differs from any play given by any previous Senior Class and pro ' ed very refreshing and delightful with the shelter- ing elm, the gazebo and the general fairy-like atmosphere.

All ye who have ears to hear hearken unto the spirit of 1921, and you shall learn what has come to pass during its four years’ reign. ' Twas a bright sunny day in September in the year of our Lord, the one thousand nine hundred and seventeenth, when we first started our career in the Fitchburg High School. Many classes have entered and have been graduated in this school, and many classes will enter and be graduated in the future years. Ah! but that was a memorable day, which first saw the entrance of the Class of 1921 into the Fitchburg High School. It was a red-letter date in the history of the school, and also in our own lives. We entered the school with superb assurance, for we were now grown up. and had left the grammar school. Our ambitions were of the highest and our opportunities unlimited — we were members of the Class of 1921 of the Fitchburg High School. We thought “Now we will no longer be considered and treated as children.’’ We entered our work with a huge sense of our own importance: but pride must have its fall, and like the rest, we fell, and fell hard. At first we were treated disdainfully. The upper classmen simply laughed, pointed at us, and said, " Only a Freshie!” Even when we asked a perfectly legitimate question as to where the library or Assembly Hall was. they made fun of us. Very evi- dently, we were not quite so important as we had considered our- selves. But we would show them! And we did — and are still showing them. It has taken our class but three years and ten months to prove itself the greatest class the school can ever know. We worked hard and we played hard, and by our fine record in studies and in athletics we steadily climbed the ladder of fame, and by the time we were Juniors, we outshone all preceding classes. In athletics our boys showed great skill — so much, in fact, that though fortune favored the Seniors, we caused them considerable discomforturc of mind previous to Class Day. In our Senior year, through the superb playing of the Senior element on the foot-ball team, Fitchburg lost very few games, and proved the material worthy of the Class of 1921. Our class has also proven its worth by its deeds. In fact, the Juniors are the only body who do not appreciate our worth, and our parting words to them are: “Follow our lead and you will then learn to appreciate the path we have marked out for you.’’ However, the Class of 1921 does not intend to rest here, but are ready now to go forward into larger fields, where they will quickly show their practical worth, and by their achievements cause others to follow their example, so that when all is said and done the world may justly say “There li ■ed a class, when comes such another?” 51 SOCIALS Senior Class Party The first Senior Class Party was held in the Assembly Hall Thanksgiving night, November 29. The hall was prettily decorated with the class colors. Nearly eighty couples enjoyed the dancing. Music was furnished by Henault ' s orchestra. The committee in charge consisted of: John Dunn.

Refreshments were ser ed by the Juniors. Junior Class Party The Junior Class Party was held in the Assembly Hall. January 14. The committee in charge succeeded in making it an enjoyable evening.

A capacity audience enjo ' ed the presenta- tion of two plays: “Practice Makes Perfect — Sometimes.” directed by V. J. Dooling, of the faculty, and “An April Fool Farce.” written and directed by Miss Nora O. Foote of the Facult ' . “Practice Makes Perfect — Sometimes,” was an English play with many humorous situations. The parts were ex- cellently taken by Thomas Ejirley Mr. Primrose Leone Bradley Bobbin .Aili Wikstedt Miss Biffin Marj’ Larson Miss VVinterblossom Ernest Nourie Henry Thornton Priscilla Hooper Ellen Murray “An April Fool Farce” illustrating various types of office applicants and assistants was most successful. The familiarity with subject and characters made it almost hila- rious. The youngest member of the faculty, disguised as a loquacious woman, kept the audience in continual laughter.

On hearing this an advertising agent approached the minister and offered to print some new books free of charge providing that he was allowed to advertise his goods in them. The minister agreed, and the next Sunday was astounded to hear his congregation singing something like this: Hark the Herald. Angels sing, Beechman’s pills are just the thing, Peace on earth and mercy mild. Two for men, and one for child. C. T.: “You don ' t chew tobacco, do you. Herbert?” Blackwell: “No. sir. but I can give you a cigarette.” A young man who had just recently entered the clergy, and who had a habit of sneezing during his sermon, was gently criti- cised by the local paper in this manner: ' Tis passing strange as we reflect, And it sure does beat creation. That when oration we expect, ' e get “Expect-oration.” Two maids by the river were kneeling. To disrobe for the swim they were stealing.

CHAFFIN’S VICTOR PARLORS 355 Main Street, Fitchburg Special Victor Phone 870 Fitchburg’s Big Market A concerted effort to obtain a big volume of business is responsible for much of our success. Large sales, (luickly made for cash, and carried away, are the factors that enable us to make a tremendous turno ' er on an exceedingly small margin of profit. For instance, in one eight-day period a short time ago, we recei ’ed one hundred carcasses of Beef, sixteen thousand pounds of fresh Pork, and two hundred and sixty carcasses of Lamb and Yearling. This enormous amount of fresh meat was taken care of and moved into consumption without delay or incon enience. Such a large output is bound to give us many advantages in buying at low prices, all of which we pass on to the consumer. A trip through our Market and its twelve departments, each one a complete store in itself, is time w’ell spent. Why not pay us a visit, see our display of pure foods, all under glass, and note the reasonable figures at which they are priced? Come in and look around.
