He graduated from Dartmouth in 1878, receiving an A. B. degree. He then took up the study of law at the National University, Washington, D. C, from which he received the degree of LL. B. After a most successful and varied experience as teacher and superintendent of schools, he became an agent for the State Department of Education. From that posi- tion, in 1920, he came to our Normal School. His inexhaustible patience and his active interest in all student activities have done much for us and for the ad- vancement -of our school. The members of the Class of 1925 appreciate sincerely the high ideals he,, has inspired that we may become efficient teachers and good citizens. |Q Fitchburg Normal 9 5 ffiie Saxifrage MRS. IDA L.

For three years, she taught in the high school at Milton, Oregon, and later devoted several years to Y. W. C. A. work in Billings, Montana.

Anthony, Director of the Practical Arts Department, and Dean of Men, has the respect of all the students. His experience and education have been along practical lines. He graduated with honors from Boston Normal Art School. He then supervised drawing in the public schools of North Adams for six years. In 1909, he organized the Practical Arts Department of Fitchburg Normal School. This department has grown, in the sixteen years of its existence, to be one of the best equipped and most thorough systems of practical educa- tion in Massachusetts. The Class of 1925 appreciates his fine qualities of mind and spirit; and all that he has done to make our school life practical, pleasant, and profitable.

It is our hope that in future years it may form a binding link between past and pres- ent, and bring again a realistic picture of those happy days that used to be. Only when it has succeeded in the ful- fillment of this great mission may we say that it redounds to our credit. Y 1 9 Fitchbur g Normal ? ; VcT ' The Saxifrage ACKNOWLEDGMENTS To the following persons whose valuable services have helped us to make this fourth volume of The Saxifrage a success, we, the Class of 1925, and The Saxifrage Board, wish to express our deep appreciation: Miss Katherine McCarty, who greatly aided us with advice and suggestions. Miss Helen O ' Horo, who very kindly assisted us in the business management. Mr. John McDonnell and Mr. Walter Sweenor, whose untiring efforts in securing advertisements for us, have largely contributed to the financial support of this book. |Q Fitchburg Normal £ j 16 M ■ SENIORS ■ ■ mm I ■ J I Jimmm Q he Saxifrage ALMA MATER Now we see the curtain fall, We note the play is o ' er; ' Twere only meet we should applaud, And wish for sweet encore. The curtain rises once again — The stage, each loyal heart; Old scenes we knew and loved relive, And friends each play their part. We hold the program in our hands, And gently turn each page. How fondly read we first its name — Ah, ' tis " The Saxifrage " ! — Alice C ashman. jQ Fitchburg Normal £5 The Saxifrage PAULINE FRANCES WALDRON, President WALTER CLARENCE 1 ' OLSON, Vice-President GRACE ELTZABETH BROWN, Secretary LEO BERNARD FLANAGAN, Treasurer |Q Fitchburg Normal 25 18 ■ Tlie Saxifrage 8 Waverly Street PAULINE FRANCES WALDRON " She has been our guide, sage, philosopher, and friend- The very acme of perfection! " Fitchburg, Mass. The J. H. S. IV Class is proud, and indeed fortunate, in having such a good scout for a leader. Pauline has proved herself a very able pilot all through the course. We expect that she will secure an eminent position as a math, instructor, judging from her ability to solve trig, problems (?). " Is there anything in my mailbox? " is her constant cry between periods. Writing a letter a day is one way of fitting oneself for teaching English, and the outcome will not surprise us a bit. H. M. stands for His Majesty. Do you still believe opportunity " Knox " but once, Pauline? President of J. H. S. IV, W. A. A., Basket Ball, D. G. A. 69 Elizabeth Street WALTER CLARENCE POLSON " Women are no assets to this world (?). " Fitchburg, Mass. A firm resolution to maintain celibacy no doubt provoked the above statement. He may think he ' s deceiving us — but we advise him to have a care or the goblin ' 11 get him. Walt has spent many long hours at his books and his recitations surely prove it. " Practically " and " possibly " his spare time is spent in boosting the Y. M. C. A. At times Walt has made some rash statements in class but then — a debater always has his own views on any subject. He has a great deal of ambition — a characteristic of all great men. Vice-President of J. H. S. IV, Debating, M. A. A., French Club. 71 Spring Street GRACE ELIZABETH BROWN ' Grace in all her steps, heaven in her eye, In every gesture dignity and love. " West Springfield, Mass. " Brownie, " as she is known to all her classmates, shoulders a great deal of responsibility for her Alma Mater. By her ability in class discussions we can predict for her a brilliant future as speaker cf the House. Into whatever field she may go we can see nothing but success awaiting her. Grace seems to have a greater interest in psychology this year — is it the teacher or the subject, Brownie? President of Student Government ' 25, Secretary of Girls ' A. A. ' 25, Secretary of J. H. S. ' 24, ' 25, Hockey, Bowling. 154 Harrison Avenue LEO BERNARD FLANAGAN " My thoughts are my own. Fitchburg, Mass. For two years Leo has served as the efficient treasurer of the J. H. S. IV Class. His dignified manner would lead us to believe that he cared not for the weaker sex, and careful observation has proved this to be true. We have often wondered what Leo does in his spare time but we have never succeeded in finding out. Rumor has it, however, that Leo is seen frequently in Leominster, but that isn ' t incriminating. His s incerity and natural ability predict a bright future for him. Treasurer of J. H. S. IV ' 24, ' 25, Men ' s A.

" Doris has worked faithfully for four years at F. N. S. and wherever she was found cooperating, success was certain. By her kind words, her desire to help, and her artistic ability, she has won the approval of both faculty and classmates. She seems to have a great interest in Biblical stories, especially the one concerning " Daniel " (?). Doris is a little timid in expressing her views, but after reading her written work we find something of her real self and her ideals. We hope in parting, that Doris ' s faithfulness will be rewarded and that she will find good luck all through life. Tennis, Bowling, Girls ' A. A., D. G. A., Secretary French Club ' 25. HELEN IRENE KEATING " Gentle of speech, Beneficent of mind. " Fitchburg, Mass. When Helen left us to teach in South Royalston, we never d:eamed that she would return to F. N. S., but teaching in a .country schoo 1 was not all sunshine, so Helen found out. It may seem that Helen takes study too seriously. However, she found time for bowling once a week or playing tennis. We have no doubt that Helen will meet with success wherever she goes, and will be a valuable asset to any community. Tennis, Bowling, Girls ' A. A., French Club, D. G. A. MADLYN MARY MALONEY 126 Laurel Street Fitchburg, Mass. " She moves a goddess and looks a queen. " When first we met this tall, dignified young lady with the golden hair we wondered how we could know her better. Everything comes to him who waits and after four years Mad ' yn has won the hearts of all who have made her acquaintance at F. N. S. Mad ' .yn tried to make us believe that the best physical exercise was driving a Buick car, but Miss McDermott succeeded in getting her to show her re- markable abi.ity in bowling, as well as her speed in driving. Her hardest task at F. N. S. seems to have been to get to Assembly on time, and her only excuse is that it is a long walk from the South Side. Here ' s luck to you, Madlyn !

" X There came forth from a little town this maiden who won the x hearts of all who met her. Charlotte is one of the happy members of our class who seems to find pleasure in most everything. Lately she has been fostering the desire of going into the Kentucky mountains to teach and if she does go we know she will win many pupils by her sunny disposition. As a debater Charlotte brought honor to our class. She shows her debating ability in class also by trying to defend that home town. Charlotte will never lack friends, for all wish to know the girl with a smile for everyone. Tennis, Bowling, W. A. A., Day Student Government Council, French Club. JEANNETTE HERMINIE RICHARD 91 North Street Fitchburg, Mass. " Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. " If you happen to stroll through Normal Hall and hear a mirthful laugh, you will surely see a little girl who is always happy and free. Jeannette ' s happy-go-lucky way helped us all in some of the long dreary hours of study. Jeannette usually makes us sit up and take notice when she brings her assignment to class where it is always appreciated. Each year spent at F. N. S. seems to have added more to her popularity, for everyone knows her to be a good friend. We hear she intends to continue her education and will again study French at Harvard University this summer. One of her great desires is to visit Le Francais et Sa Patrie. She has been known to confide a dis- tinct preference for the medical profession. Who could do better? President French Club, W. A. A., Tennis, Hockey, Bowling, D. G. A. LORANE CATHERINE SCHUDER 1020 Parchment Avenue Kalamazoo, Mich. " Oh! how I wish again That I were in Michigan. " Lorane tried hard last year to make herself believe that the West was God ' s country, but the East held too many of her dear friends, so back home she came. She is one of those happy-go-lucky girls who seems to bring sunshine wherever she goes. Two years ago, Lorane was one of the best athletes at Normal, but this year her artistic abil- ity was recognized and she has filled the position as drawing instruc- tor at Junior High. Friends she has many, but one young man whom we know seems to have first place. W. A. A. |Q Fitchburg Normal £5 ?

She certainly puts " pep " into everything she does and we couldn ' t have sailed our ship without her. Words fail to express our admiration and we part wishing her well in all she may undertake. W.

Scottie is a product of the famous Berkshires He also is captain of the basket ball team and a born athlete. Early in our first school year he was elected vice-president of our class and has held the position for the past two years. Scottie is quite active socially and can always be depended upon whenever a social affair is held at school. Scottie ' s second year finds him deeply in love and a busy man, particularly on Sundays, for he has to rush over to Miller Hall to obtain parking space before the rest of the " Sheiks " arrive. Scottie makes his home at the school greenhouse which prob- ably accounts for his flowery button holes and his cheery disposition.

Surely no one could find a truer or better friend than Mary. For two years she has served us as class scribe and has ever worked faithfully and loyally, with her fellow officers, for the betterment of our class. She is always on the spot, ready to do her bit as best she can. Kind, understanding and sympathetic, a classmate truly worth while is Mary. Secretary Class ' 24, ' 25, W. A. A., Hiking, Hockey.

Ray drives to school every morning in a high-powered Ford coupe. In the afternoon he may be seen driving madly in the direction of Athol, for Ray is the honorable foot- ball coa;h of the prosperous town of Athol. Ray is not very particular whether school keeps or not. He may be expected in class anytime between 9.30 and 12.00 M. His chief desire is to get through school as soon as possible and then marry the " girl of his dreams, " who was a former member of F. N. S. Treasurer Class ' 24, ' 25, Dramatics, Glee Club.

" Sibyl is the tall young lady with hair of burnished gold, who is always willing to be of service to some less gifted fellow mortal. In all her work, in all her recitations, there is evidenced a brilliancy of mind that is uncommon. Her ability is especially noticeable in psychology class. We feel assured that as a Junior High School teacher Sibyl will be a success and bring renown to the Class of 1925. W. A. A., Tennis. 2 Mvrtle Place WILLIAM JOSEPH ASHLINE ' ' Let no man dispute me.

She has always put time and energy into her school work and has passed in her subjects with ease and merit.

She is always good natured and ready to help or cheer anyone that needs it. She seems to take little interest in the Normal School men, but there is probably a reason. If she is as popular with her pupils as with her classmates her future is assured. Dramatics, D. S. A., Glee Club. ANGELA MAY BLASS 2219 Centre Street West Roxburv, Mass. " Witty, jolly and care-free — Always happy as she can be. " Charmed? Of course you are, because Ray ' s " May " delights us all. We might as well be " Frank " about it. Everyone loves her for her sweet little ways. Pretty blue eyes, snappy, unruffled appearance, these characterize her. We often wonder who designs May ' s frocks, for they are classy to say the least. May is a girl who will enter into any kind of fun, especially where the Palmer Hall trio is concerned. Her popularity at dances assures us that she is very well versed in the Terpsichorean Art.

Clara ' s crowning virtue is silence (in school). There are excep- tions, however, to every rule, and we have evidence that she makes things lively in her little town. When she begins to talk, all of Senior III takes notice, because she has often saved the day for them with her brilliant recitations. In her English classes, Clara is the center of attraction, for when she ' s called upon to recite, everybody expects something decidedly original. As a teacher she was most successful, and we have good reason to believe that her good work will continue. Our best wishes go with you, Clara, — and good luck! W. A. A., Glee Club, D. S. A.

All who saw him as the " talkative trickster, " between the acts of " O ' Hara San, " will agree that he is a wizard.

However, in years to come, that others may profit by our deeds, let us go over the events that have happened in the past two years. But a short while ago, on September twelfth, one thousand nine hundred twenty- three, the educational portals of Fitchburg Normal School were thrown wide to receive a select group of entering students. Some of us had waded through stiff entrance examinations and were now in a slightly doubtful frame of mind as to our future success. But we needn ' t have worried. After we had shed a few tears over being separated from our friends into five different divisions and had become familiar with the slightly complicated arrangement of rooms, our ability soon began to show itself. Having satisfied the Seniors as to our humil- ity of spirit, which they were at no loss to test, we were formally accepted as a part of the school at the Junior reception. Attrac- tively dressed in white, we made a pleasing picture as we passed up the line of welcoming faculty members. Yet the aesthetic sense was not the only thing to be satisfied. The Seniors had seen to it that our inward cravings were to be appeased with plenty of ice cream and cake, and after the dancing in Normal Hall, we returned to our respective dormitories and homes, modestly feeling that now we were amounting to something. As a result of this feeling, in October, we cast our ballots for class officers, and in this also showed our usual good judgment. We elected Helen Devaney, President; Stewart Scott, Vice-President; Mary Tarrant, Secre- tary; and Raymond Pelletier, Treasurer. We applied ourselves diligently to our studying now, and began to acquire some of the professional attitude which we heard so much about. The weird Halloween Party and the delightful Christmas Party were two occa- sions that were immensely enjoyed. Foremost on the list of social activities was our own Valentine Party. " Is there a man with soul so dead " that he didn ' t feel thri ' led when our colors, blue and gold, were dis- played? After a pretty little Valentine play, the class officers appeared on the stage, and we sang our class song which was written for the occasion. In the spring the first group of Juniors went in training, and our class had its first taste of actual teaching. Later on, in a small way, our class members were allowed to participate in the Senior prom. About twenty men and eight girls were se- lected from the Junior class to usher, and from what they said to the rest of us, we concluded that they had an exceedingly pleasant time at the Holy Cross dance the following evening. Our last appearance as Juniors came on the Seniors ' Class Day, when, dressed in white with blue and gold middy ties and proudly carrying our blue and gold banners, we added much to the picturesqueness of the occasion. After our two months of vacation we re- turned in September as Seniors to resume preparation for our professional career. Of course we regarded the incoming Junior Class with a slight " know-it-all " feeling and with much ingenuity we taught them to respect our dignity. This year we reelected the same class offi- cers, and they have conducted our affairs in a most efficient manner. Soon we will be Alumni of Fitchburg Nor- mal School. When we are teaching and there- by effectively carrying out the purpose for which we came here we will remember and appreciate that much was offered us, much we took unto ourselves, and therefore much we have. May the memories of F. N. S. ever spur us on to add to that precious knowledge we have acquired. Many the days we spent here ; Much the knowledge we learned; Friends and mem ' ries are now dear, As the page of our life is turned.

Seniors and Juniors from both dormitories were present. The Seniors en- joyed instructing the poor little Juniors as to their conduct the following week. Refresh- ments were served, and games and dancing enjoyed. JUNIOR RECEPTION Both Faculty and Seniors cooperated in making the formal Junior Reception an en- joyable occasion to the newcomers. After the Juniors were presented to the members of our faculty, they were escorted to the library where we were entertained by members of the school. Dancing and refreshments followed the en- tertainment. STUDENT GOVERNMENT BANQUET The third annual banquet of the Student Government Association was held in the Pal- mer Hall dining room, November 14. The dining room was attractively decorated with flowers, ferns, and softly lighted with candles. Speakers of the evening were officers of the association and guests. After a delightful ban- quet, we adjourned to the library and tripped the light fantastic to the strains of Cline ' s orchestra. Our hosts were the ex-service men of the school. MASQUERADE PARTY Great was our delight when we discovered in the lobby of Normal building posters in- forming us of a masquerade party to be en- joyed by the faculty and student body. The only requirements were a costume and a jolly disposition. What fun when we took Miss for one of " us " ! So attractive and clever were the various costumes that the judges were greatly puzzled as to who deserved the prize. There were many surprises when finally the masks were removed. CHRISTMAS PARTY On Monday night, December 15, the sound of children ' s voices could be heard filling the dormitory corridors. " Do you like my new dress? " " My mother gave me a penny for a lolly-pop. " We hurried to the door to see what had happened and lo! some good fairy had transformed our professional-looking young women to cunning little children. We hurried to dress, too, and ran to the party in Palmer Hall where Santa Claus presented us with gifts and ice cream. CHRISTMAS BANQUET The true Christmas spirit was shown at the Christmas banquet, celebrated in old English style. The Lord and Lady, impersonated by the presidents of our classes, were tendered the greatest respect by the banquet guests. The old English customs of bringing in the wassail bowl, the boar ' s head, the yule log, plum pud- ding, and mince pie were all observed. The joyful voices of the carolers were heard during the banquet. This was a fitting celebration for such an occasion. NEW YEAR ' S EVE How to spend New Year ' s eve appropriately, was a great problem. We finally decided on a midnight show at the Lyric. We all went and enjoyed the spirit of fun which prevailed. After the show everyone returned to Palmer Hall where cocoa and sandwiches were served. GAVELEER DANCE January 13 marked another social event of our career. The much-talked-of Gaveleer dance was held in the library. A special fea- ture of the dance was the unveiling of the Gaveleer ' s new emblem by President Robert Quirk. Hannon ' s Orchestra furnished music for a very successful dance. JUNIOR PARTY Much excitement prevailed! Why? The Juniors were to give their first party. February Cs Fitchburg Normal 25 77 The Saxifrage 14 was a date much anticipated by the Juniors. Their combined efforts afforded a unique and amusing entertainment for all who attended . Following the entertainment we were invited to the library, which was attrac- tively decorated in honor of St. Valentine. Prettily dressed waitresses served us delicious refreshments. Dancing was then in crder and each guest received a Valentine favor. MOHAWK DANCE Everyone ' s interest was aroused when it was announced that the newly formed Mo- hawk club invited us all to a dance in the li- brary on St. Patrick ' s night. There was much amusement afforded everyone who attended the vaudeville presented by members of the club. Following the vaudeville, there was dancing in the library, which was very attrac- tively decorated in maroon and gold, the colors of the club. Everyone enjoyed the dance, and looks forward to the coming dances to be given by the Mohawks. SENIOR PROMENADE The annual Senior Promenade, the most important social affair of the year, was held the week-end of May 15. Friday evening, the prom, dance was held in the library, which was decorated as an old-fashicned garden. Ushers were very quaint and charming in their old- fashioned costumes. Everyone especially en- joyed the banquet. Saturday, there was the baseball game in the afternoon, and in the evening a dance. A good time never to be forgotten! ANNUAL HOOP-ROLLING CONTEST 6V j Q Fitchbur o Normal ? j O " 78 WBKfer ffiie Saxifrage MUSIC ' Tis said an emperor of ancient times abdi- cated his throne because he failed to make two clocks run together. Consider, then, for one instant, our courageous director endeavoring to make three hundred young men and women sing together; all praise to her ability in suc- ceeding where others have failed. With her skilful fingers and her voice she is teaching the virtues of the beautiful in song, and is ob- taining one grand, harmonious whole. GLEE CLUB This year there were two Glee Clubs organ- ized, one consisting of twenty-five or more men, the other of some fifty young women. Both clubs have done much to entertain with musical programs. " O HARA SAN " " O Hara San, " a Japanese operetta in two acts, by Edith M. Burrows and Edward John- son, was presented by the Normal School stu- dents in the assembly hall, March 26, under the direction of Raymond J. Pelletier. The operetta, given before a capacity audi- ence, was staged by Mr. Pelletier as a Senior project. The fanciful native costumes, the catchy songs, the beautiful scenery, the good singing, and the Oriental music all helped to make it one of the best operettas ever staged by ama- teurs in this city. To Mr. Pelletier goes much of the credit for its success. He not only was the leading spirit throughout the rehearsals but he also directed presentation, took the leading male part, and lived up to his reputation as a " silver-tongued tenor. " The leading lady, Miss Ina Markkanen, proved that, besides being a talented singer, she had much dramatic ability. The scenery for the operetta was painted by Fred Gentsch and it depicted a Japanese gar- den very beautifully and skilfully done.

This was an old English May Day fete in which the students of the Practice Schools, Junior High, and Normal School took part as a unit. The program was as follows: Prologue: Winter is slowly dying and the cold winds give way to the warm sun and soft south winds.

The purpose of the Club is to promote the study of drama in all its forms, to encourage the writing and directing of plays, the design- ing and executing of stage settings, and espe- cially to foster the presentation of good plays. The members of the Dramatic Council were elected from the Junior and Senior Classes to act as captains in promoting and selecting a series of plays, and the following judges were selected by the Council to determine the cast for the All-School Dramatic Team: Faculty members: Mr. Harrington, Miss Webster, Mr. Kirkpatrick, and. Miss Conlon; and from the student body: Miss Helen Devaney, and Mr. Eugene Caldwell. ' : The Flower Shop " was presented by the council under the direction and supervision of Miss Isaura Macedo.

The club was organized by a group of men who realized the advantages to be gained by organization instead of individual effort in promoting a spirit of cooperation in the school, social welfare in student life, and professional advancement. The charter members of the club are: Stan- ley Kruszyna, Clarence Rabouin, Francis Hurlbut, Clifton Phelps, Cyril Wynn, James Kiley, John Connell, Everett Morgan, Paul Roche, Stewart Scott, George Haley, Lester Roy, Fred Gentsch, James Dolan, and John McDonnell. On March 17, 1925, the club held its first entertainment and dance. Early in the eve- ning a short entertainment was given by mem- bers of the club, and later dancing was en- joyed in the library. The popularity of the organization with the students is shown by the full quota of mem- bers and a waiting list. The members have received valuable training in oral English, par- liamentary practice, and extemporaneous speaking. The original purposes have been more than realized and the club has bound to- gether a group of young men with ties that cannot be broken.

Honor, integrity, truthfulness, unity are only part of its virtues which have been regarded faithfully by all. This year has seen a greater growth in its power, an added trust in its honor; a stronger faith in its in- tegrity. We have felt the strength of its high standards, and have striven to live up to them. Its influence is acknowledged on every side. Much credit for its success must be given to the officers of the Association, who are as fol- lows: President, Grace Brown, J. H. S. ' 25. Vice-President, Dorothy Hopkins ' 25. Secretary, Mary Marsh, J. H. S. ' 27. Treasurer, Valma Carey ' 25. House President of Palmer Hall, Anna Flynn ' 25. House President of Miller Hall, Margaret Mather ' 25. House Vice-President of Palmer Hall, Marion Holt ' 26. House Vice-President of Miller Hall , Lillian Allyn ' 26. Senior Members at Large, Katherine Hafey, Marion Sutcliffe, Irene Gottberg. Junior Members at Large, Mary Whelan, May Dugan, Grace Marlowe. They, with conscientious endeavor, have carried on its ideals, and helped us to live up to them. November 14, 1924, the third Student Gov- ernment banquet was given in the Palmer Hall dining room. The guests were Miss Julia O ' Brien, a former president of the Association, Miss Marion Seaver, President of the Day Girls ' Association, Mr. and Mrs. Anthony, Mr. and Mrs. Clancy, and Miss Perry. Miss Grace Brown acted as toastmistress, and addresses were given by several of the guests and officers. This was followed by dancing in the library. Thus has Student Government reached an- other rung on the ladder and may the years to come see it ascending to the top. To the Class of ' 26 is entrusted th e further promotion of this noble cause, which we are confident will continue to be a great success.

For the purpose of having a more organized body, the commuters, for the last three years, have carried on their activities in a group known as the Day Girls ' Association. This organization is composed of all girls not living in the dormitories, and corresponds to the Stu- dent Government Association of the latter. The Association works for the welfare of its members and helps to make their hours of rec- Secretary, Mary Flaherty Treasurer, Una Jackson reation more pleasant. For their enjoyment, there is a very attractive room in Miller Hall. The locker rooms and lunch rooms are taken care of by this group. To help create a more social spirit among the day girls, a very delightful luncheon was served them on February 5, in Miller Hall. With Mr. and Mrs. Parkinson, Mrs. Still, Mr. Harrington, and Miss Hopkins as guests of the association, a very pleasant time was enjoved by all.

The third period on Thursday of each week was given over to this work, and inter-division debates were planned. In all cases there were three judges — two fac- ulty members, and one from the student body. The following inter-division debates were presented: " The merits of the three most im- portant candidates for President and the plat- forms of their parties. " SENIOR I (Republican): Helen Devaney, Ger- trude McConville, Bessie Saltzman. J.H. S.IV (Democratic: Walter Poison, Charlotte Pickard, Pauline Waldron. SENIOR P. A. (Progressive): John Fitzpatrick, Edward Stebbins, Carroll Davenport. Decision of the judges was in favor of Senior I, who upheld the Republican standards most ably. The judges were Miss Doland, Miss Conlon, and James Dolan. " Resolved, That the 20th amendment should be added to the Federal Constitution. " SENIOR II SENIOR II, P. A. Iona Lezotte Donald Stone Arioul Shepardson William Ashline Eleanor Pratt James Dolan The negative, represented by Senior II, P. A., was awarded the decision by Miss Williams, Messrs.

George O ' Toole John Wesolowski Herbert Sullivan Walter Pasanen Esther Boyle David Forrest The decision was in favor of the negative team; the judges were Miss Conlon, Mr. Ran- dall, and Edward Stebbins. After the Christmas vacation, the following students were chosen from the teams taking- part in the inter-division debates, to represent Fitchburg Normal School in the debates to be held with Keene Normal School on the sub- ject: Resolved, That the 20th Amendment as proposed should be adopted and added to the Federal Constitution. Two debates were held, one at Fitchburg, and the other at Keene. Keene Normal School was awarded the de- cision of the judges in both debates, receiving a unanimous vote in Fitchburg and a two-to- one vote at Keene. However, both Fitchburg teams upheld the honor of the school in a most creditable manner and were worthy represen- tatives of the student body. Much credit is due the Debating Council, its president, Miss Bessie Saltzman, and faculty advisors, Miss Williams and Mr. Harrington, for the capable manner in which debating was carried out and the great interest aroused in the subject.

A. chose as its offi- cers John Healy, President; James Dolan, Sec- retary; Stanley Kruszyna, Vice-President; Leon Yarter, Treasurer; with Mr. Clancy, Mr. MacLean, and Mr. Anthony as faculty ad- visors. With such leaders, the Men ' s A. A. had a most successful year, and has had an im- portant part in the life of this Normal School. It is bound to grow stronger each year. Never in the history of our school has such an interest been manifested in athletics among the students and faculty as in the season of 1924-25. Any drive, whether for moral or financial aid for the benefit of athletics was boosted by the student body to the limit. Such wonderful spirit among the student body, in- spired by the acquisition of our new athletic field, predicts a great success in the future. We must not forget, however, the hearty share that the men who took part in these contests bore. The substitutes also deserve credit for their loyalty. To them is due the glory they rightly deserve. May athletics in the years to come have a bigger, a better, and a greater place in the school life of all our students. Along with the regular activities of the As- sociation came the work of completion of an athletic field. Under the direction of Mr. Clancy much progress was made. First came the game with St. Anselm ' s College, which was held on Crocker Field. This game netted a large sum and proved to the citizens of Fitch- burg that the Normal School was really after an Athletic Field. Then various projects were undertaken to benefit the field fund and were highly successful, in fact, so successful, that by the time this book goes to press, the Athletic Field will be a reality.

The schedule, as ar- ranged, was quite difficult, and our victories were few. In spite of defeats, however, those who went out for the team gained a great deal in getting an understanding of the game. Next year, since a beginning has been made, we hope to make a more creditable showing. The football squad takes this opportunity to thank Mr. Clancy for the interest he took and the good work done in coaching us. The schedule was as follows: Cushing 13 Middlesex 14 Bridgewater 7 Lawrence H.

The men graduating who will leave the squad are Leland, McNally, Stebbins, Fitz- patrick, Kruszyna, and Ffilbert. While their loss will be felt, we hope for new material to come in and to take their places. Many who did not make the team last year may be de- pended upon for the coming year to give us their support. At the end of the season the squad chose George F. (Huck) Haley, as captain for the next season. He has had a great deal of ex- perience as a football player and at the same time is a good leader and fine fellow. His work last year proved all of this. Shirley Bohaker was promoted from assistant mana- ger to manager. Under their direction our success seems assured.

Paul Roche played his usual star game whether at forward or at center. " Spats " Leland played in h : s usual strong style. Normal loses a good man in " Spats " next year. Eddie Fitzgerald and Joe Rabouin both played a very strong game, and should be the mainstays of next year ' s team, of which Joe is captain. Fitzpatrick was one of the dependable backs although it was his first appearance on the court. Hilbert played a great game at the center position and always kept close watch on his opponent. Normal was fortunate this year, as it had some very good substitutes, all of whom played well whenever called upon. Mr. Amiott of the high school was engaged as coach. He developed one of the best sys- tems ever carried out in the history of the school. The games and results are shown be- low.

Captain John Mc- Nally will act as coach, and while it is yet early, we predict he will turn out a good team. McNally has been varsity pitcher for three years, and has enjoyed unusual success both as a pitcher and a batter. John Fitzpatrick, infielder and catcher for three years, should enjoy a very good season, as should Messrs. Roche, Quirk, Stebbins, and the new men, Draper, Forrest, McAuliffe, and Scott. We trust that this year ' s team will be worthy of the name of Fitchburg Normal School. Captain John McNally and Manager Leon Yarter called out candidates, March 23. A large number responded. An excellent team was rounded out to start a hard schedule. Lowell Textile defeated Normal in the first game of the season 2 to 0. Dean caught the Normal boys on an " off day, " and defeated them 7 to 0. Andover suffered its first defeat by a Normal School team and also the first defeat in two years. Schedule 9— Open.

The following officers were elected: President, Mary Marsh; Vice-President, Mary Lewis; Secretary, Grace Brown; Treasurer, Alice Woods. Besides election of officers for the ensuing year, a committee of four was appointed to draw up a constitution which is to be a perma- nent guide for the association. A new point system, in which the girls have shown more than ordinary interest, is being tested. This is one step further in the progress of the organization. The purpose of the point system is to arouse interest in a number of activities, thus making an all around athlete, rather than a star in one particular sport. A girl who succeeds in making 250 points will receive a felt F. N. S. emblem; for 500 points, a W. A. A. gold pin, and for 1000 points, a Winged Victory. The physical education de- partment requires one outside activity for each season. The activities are divided as follows: Fall — Hockey, tennis, bowling, soccer, and hiking. Winter — Bowling, volley ball and basket ball. Spring — Track, tennis, bowling, hiking, aesthetic dancing, horseshoe, baseball, and handball. Each sport counts so many points according to the time and effort spent in following it up.

Several competitions between the Juniors and Seniors were held at the Pearl Street fair grounds. The honors of hockey were carried off by the Juniors. At the end of the hockey season, Miss Mc- Dermott took charge of a W. A. A. sport get- together. It was held in our gymnasium im- mediately after school. Every sport was re- sponsible for a stunt. They were carefully planned and exceedingly funny. Every Senior girl had as her banquet guest a Junior. The major activity of the year was basket ball. First came the inter-division contests in which the entire school showed considerable interest. These first games ended in a tie be- tween Junior V and Senior I. The class teams were chosen from all the divisions and once again the Seniors won. The " All Normal Team " was picked from these players to go against Bridgewater Normal on March 7. One of the most interesting girls ' basket ball games was held here that night. Score: Fitchburg 35, Bridgewater 31. The lineup was: Margaret Mather eg, Thel- ma Bohaker lg, Margaret Donovan rg, Vera Goodrich cf , Alice Gilchrest If, Anna Duquette rf; Meegan, Flannery, Nordberg, Capen, and Brown, substitutes.

It ' s in the plant and the organization that the button puts at your service Press the little button — and light floods your home. Commonplace to us, yet one of the wonders of the world, one of man ' s greatest achieve- ments. Turn a switch — and the electric vacuum cleaner scoops up dirt and dust from rugs, from portieres, from furniture, from mattresses. Com- monplace to us, yet it means the emancipation of woman from the slavery of housework. Plug into a floor or wall outlet — and coffee begins magically to per- colate on the table before you or toast is browned right at your elbow or crisp warm waffles are made before your eyes. Commonplace to us, yet a convenience, a comfort, a resplendent pleasure that not even kings could conceive a few short years ago. Magic! Magic indeed! But not in the electric button. That ' s mere mechanism. Magic in the efficiently equipped plant with its won- drous machinery, magic in the highly-trained organization, magic of men and of machinery that serve you instantly at the touch of the button. That button puts instantly at your service millions of dollars in- vested in plant and equipment, hundreds of minds trained and developed to serve you. Telephone 1SS0.
