School-days lilled with toil and bliss
Pass on with wings of time:
Well-known nooks and friends we'll miss
When we join the endless line.
So let us every day in every way
Be loyal to '26,
And do our best in our every iightg
Be true in the proper light
To the Green and White.
School days o'er, but memories
Of the joys of long ago
Are treasured with our used-to-be's
Where weld like once more to go
And oh, dear Class of lZ6,
On you our thoughts we'll Hx,
And like a beacon shining bright
We'll always lead the tight
For the Green and White.

So let us all cheer for Normal,
For our school and our colors,
For it pleases us well
Of her victories to tell
And her many honors toog
We have a school we are fond of
And a school we are proud of
So let us all cheer for Normal
For the Yellow and White.

The sand in the glass has run its course and Time, the never-
ceasing hand of Time, which marks the joys and sorrows of the
world, beckons us forward into the whirl of life. The fraternities
which we have banded together with love and friendship must be
broken by separation. Loneliness creeps into our hearts as we make
ready to say good-bye.
The EDITon1.xL Borneo has hnished its work, and the nineteen
twenty-six SAXIFRAGIC humbly asks for consideration. We ask you
who read it to consider it kindly, not as a literary effort but as an
earnest desire to bind together the Howers of memory by the threads
of comradeship at dear old Normal. If this may be true, we shall
feel that our book has not been written in vain.

ALMA MATER !
We are going from the halls of old Normal,
Into the whirl and the strife,
But armored with breastplates of knowledge,
We will conquer the battles of life.
In our minds, tender dreams and desires
Of success at the end of the road,
In our hearts, Alma Mater shall linger
With her ideals, her teachings, her code.
The dangers of life may assail us.
As the sea., the storm may distort.
But the lessons Alma Mater has taught us,
Will guide the barque safely to port.
And when our life work is finished,
Our banner shall be unfurled
For a class that fought the good fight,
That gave its best to the world.

"Stay as you are, Peg, and be loved forever."
This little maid is just bubbling over with fun and mischief all the time, but nevertheless she
has shown her ability to fulhll very efiiciently her duties as Class President. Peggy is Secretary
of the W. A. A., and takes an active part in all school atiairs. She is a star forward on the Basket
Ball team, and has a keen eye for caging 'em. Peg is a good student and almost always comes
to class, sometimes without even being late, but after she arrives there are few dull moments.
Peggy was our postmistress last year. We are certain of one thing, and that is, if success is
measured by popularity, Peggy will surely come out on top.

"A man he xeemx of cheerful yesterriays
And cmzfident tmnorrowsf'
In the year 1022 the village of Bondsville was placed upon the map at Normal School by a
most honorable representative, Bob. For four years Bob has entertained at many of our socials
with his very pleasing tenor voice. Singing, however, is not Bobls sole interest, much of his time
is spent in Dramatics with a result of much acquired success during his stay. We need not mention
Bob's other interests as we all know that Bob will "ISoyle'l over very easily.

Let us introduce you to Helen, our efficient Secretary, She is lively, witty, good-natured,
has a pleasing personazity, and everything else that goes to make a good all-round girl. Helen
likes school and is an A student, but there is one subject in which she is particularly interested,
that is, Nature Study, and especial'y in one certain bird-oh, but we've said enough. Helen is
also one of the best athletes at F. N. S. She excels in Basket Ball and plays right guard on the
team. We could write a book about Helen, but we have room here ony to add that we wish her
the best of success in whatever she may do.

not surprised when we tell you one of the lair sex has a 'tholt" on him. He can be heard occasionally

t'The world belongs to the energetic."
If this saying proves true we shall expect Emma to possess the
world, for she looks upon all obstacles as opportunities and always
succeeds in making the best of all situations. Emma will always
be remembered as the Inspector of Tables and Deputy of the Dining
Hall. Emma's attitude toward her studies and friends is one of
sincerity, although she is noted for delaying the French class until
the termination of her eloquent orations. But when the J. H. S. IV
Class of ,26 has separated, no one will be able to recall a more co-
operative member than Emma.

They crowned him long ago
On a throne of rocks, in a robe of clouds,
With a diadem of snow.
You do not call these hills and mountains
Why, I am used to real heights
With two feet of snow or three."
Keep climbing mountains, Mary Anton,

And you will sometime achieve your greatest desire,

Ruth is one of our silent members except when she makes a
brilliant recitation in one of our classes. Then she makes the rest of
us "sit up and take noticef' Her love for music led to her success
in the organization of an orchestra in her school last year, which she
conducted throughout the year. Such springy feet as hers have
brought to her the honor of being the highest jumper in our class.
She is a good teacher and a loyal friend.

member of the team that helps furnish life to the J. H. S. IV Class,

some day to hear of him as professor, as he enjoys greatly the works of
the greatest philosopher. All Phills time is not spent in history study
as he takes part readily in all school activities. His work in Dramatics

time to do everything and do it well. Practically every school ora
ganization has claimed her talents and her time. Her initiative,

splendid example of the true F. N. S. girl.

whether they be of scholastic nature or otherwise. Having thus far

especially t'Runnies," and we wonder why. We know that whatever
line of work Lillian decides to follow will be a success. Her unfail-
ing courage, ability to work, and pleasing personality will not fail to
make it so.

her contagious laugh! Besides being a leader in all social gatherings,
a. good student, and an athlete excelling in basket ball, she makes
a wonderful companion. Millie's excellent portrayal of the conscien-

Harold A. Clark, better known as 'tClarky" by the greater part

During his junior year he confined most of his activities to his school
work, for which he has exceptional talent. In his senior year he tried
out for the basket ball team, winning a position on the Varsity.
He was also admitted to the Gaveleer Society. In the annual Gave-
leer play he was a member of the cast which made this play a real
success. "Clarky" makes friends readily with his cheerful disposition,
and we all wish him success in his Senior I year.

been a favorite among the girls and also among the boys since the
day she came to us. Conscientious in her work, for she is intending
to become a moulder of little minds-surely a serious undertaking.
She is one of the few who has kept "her crowning glory"-to the
sad dismay of some of her Palmer Hall friends-second floor. It
has been a little trying at times on account of her fun-loving dis-
position, for has she not lived next door to the two ttpresidents?"
Never a day passes without her hearty "good-morning" and a warm
smile to start the day. It may be safely said that "success is her
goal with smiles her milestones."

dressed of Normal men has been maintained throughout his two
years with us. His Millionaire attitude and his fur coat put him
in the category of big butter and egg men. We have no doubt that

"Those that are above business, find life."
Max is the only P. A. commuter from Athol, and keeps very much
in trim making the early train. To some of our students, Max is
not well known because he commutes, but to the followers of t'Bill
Tildeni' he is well known, and has become an expert with the rac-
quet. His fame in tennis is not his only outstanding feature, as his
scholastic record is far above average. Section P. A. I can foresee
much success for Max as he enters 'fthe field."

"Donn is another one of our talented Grammar Masters, noted
both as pianist of more than ordinary ability and as a member of
Beansie's jazz Hounds. He is another Miller Hall man. Any eve-
ning one may find him doing Arithmetic on Miller piazza by the
"Peg" method. As a terpsichorean Don has few equals at F. N. S.
He may be found at all social sessions held at the school, either as
an active participant or in the role of entertainer, for he is one of
the premiers in this art. His popularity is similar to that of a Camel
cigarette, so it must be deserved. Donald has all the elements of a
successful teacher, having scholarship, personality, and initiative.

wondered how Fred iinds time to paint all the posters for the various
School activities, we cannot say that he takes time from his studies,
as he is one of the young men of Section I, P. A., that always has
his lessons prepared. The Class of '26 appreciates most heartily his

"Sensible people find nothing useless."
Elwood Hovey, known as "El," came to Normal School one fine
September morning from Arlington to take the Practical Arts course,
specializing in woodworking. During his four years at Arlington High
School he was introduced to manual training by a graduate of
this school. He liked it so well he decided to teach manual train-
ing when he graduated. Elwood received many fine ideas from his
instructor which he has put into practice in the woodshop. Being
a likable boy, he soon became acquainted with all of the fellows
and popular with the girls. He is very popular in dramatics, taking
part in several plays. He took part in both of the Gaveleersl annual
plays. He has helped out many Seniors by taking part in their Senior
projects. Elwood did not go out for any of the varsity teams at
school, but starred in class basket ball, volley ball, and soccer games.
We are sure Elwood will make as great a success in teaching as he
has shown in coaching the winning team at Goodrich Street School.

introduction, because many have made her acquaintance. Those who
live on the third floor of Miller Hall can appreciate what she has
done to make it seem lively with her wit and jollity. Besides having
time for fun, Alice makes sure that her lessons are prepared, and she
is one upon whom the teachers can look for a good recitation. We
hope Alice will prove as successful a teacher as she did while train-

for adoring their pretty Miss Russell?

of the faculty don't know whether to give him an A or have him
arrested for disturbing the quiet of a class by saying "Now in Worces-
ter." In spite of all his talk about the home town there is not
one in the class who would not be glad to give 'tEd" a lift at any
time. Most of the teachers will not forget him for a long time, and
Miss Williams will probably never forget his brilliant recitations. It
is not infrequently that we see "Ed" inclosed by a gathering of
juniors, spell-bound by his vocabulary of elongated words.

years, captain of basket ball his second year, and in other activities
his ability as a leader have come to the surface. Not only do these
things enhance his popularity, but also his disposition, unruffled coun-
tenance at all times, and general good nature have a great deal to
do with it. His curly hair is envied by all the girls and many have
tried to borrow it, although it seems that no one but an unknown
Prep school girl would be likely to have the chance. Taking every-
thing into consideration, Scotty's three years at F. N. S. have been
a decided success. May he be as successful in the years to come and

Among the students of Fitchburg Normal School there is a digni-

Sheahan. Many of us, especially the girls in Miller Hall, have learned
to appreciate what a friend and helper "Ciel" can be. She is always
on hand in time of need, ever ready to do her best. Besides having
many of the qualities of a charming personality, she also has a keen
sense of humor, which sometimes helps to brighten her Senior divi-
sion. Cecilia will most assuredly be a successful teacher, because she
has two qualities which will guarantee this-earnestness and untiring
effort in her school work. Duty always has the precedence before
pleasure in Ciel's mind. We're willing to guarantee that her pains-
taking work and pleasant face will be valuable to the superintendent
who employs her. ,

"Time and tide wait for no one--but Mary."
Mary's animated conversation is a gloom-dispeller. She has en-
livencd many of our free periods, spent in the locker room, with
her amusing experiences. She is one of our most carefree girls. Hard
work, however, does not daunt her. Her excellent work in training
proves this. Here's hoping that her keen observation, vivid imagina-
tion, and quick wit will never fail her.

"She is-but words would fail to tell the what,
Think what a woman should he-and she is that."
Havenlt we finished with Leominster yet? No, indeed. Bee
surely it wouldn't be complete without Helen. Helen is a very good
athlete, having played basket ball, hockey, and baseball. She
also interested in track. Helen was one of the early trainers,
her success with the first grade children is only another proof of her '
winning personality. Her curly hair helps to add to her attractive-
ness, if Helen could be made more attractive.

JUNIOR YEAR, 1924-1925
A new group, numbering one hundred
ninety-seven, to study for the pedagogic
profession at Fitchburg Normal. We hear
about a Student Government Associa-
tion, and wonder just how it functions.
Stern seniors greeted jolly juniors at an
acquaintance party, and propounded their
We exhibited our good sportsmanship all
of this week by jumping cracks, bowing
Cwith a gracious sweep of the right handy
to all seniors, letting them enter all build-
ings first, giving them preference in get-
ting their mail, tying bows in our hair,
wearing Hnatural faces,', and not talking
to men. Our boys paid homage to the
seniors on the Normal steps.
Reception to New Faculty Members and
juniors. After being properly tagged and
formally introduced we became a part
of the school.
Men's A. A. Dance. The juniors all at-
tended, many out of curiosity, but largely
to help the Men's Athletic Fund.
For the first time we saw our football
team in action. A dance followed in the
library to entertain the St. Anselm's team,
and to celebrate the beginning of the
Athletic Field Fund.
The class elected their officers: Anna M.
Duquette, President, Lester J. Dyer,
Vice-President, Mary E. Dyer, Secretaryg
Herbert J. Sullivan, Treasurer.
Our Class colors, green and white, an-
nounced as soon as we voted. There will
be no Hcolor rush" this year.

ler Hall. Between the courses there were
songs and cheers to keep every one in
a pleasant mood.
Our Valentine Party proved most success-
ful, although it was Friday, the thirteenth.
lt was our first big undertaking. The
entertainment, together with the manner
in which our class song was rendered,
and the arrangements for refreshments
and dancing, were examples of excellent

gathered in front of Normal Hall, and
marched with rakes, shovels, hoes, pitch-
forks, and wheel-barrows to the site on
North Street where is our new Athletic
Field. After working diligently we all
returned to the campus where tables were
set for supper. A thunder-storm arose
suddenly, and the tables were rushed into
Palmer Hall. The dance, instead of being
held on the walks, took place in the
library. A happy day--well spent!
Entrance examinations. Many of us are
reminded of the uneasy hours we spent
one year ago.

to school after Thanksgiving unless you
are vaccinated." Butfwe all returned!

In the fall of the school year Girls' Glee
Clubs were formed. One consisted of mem-
bers from the Senior Class, the other of mem-
bers from the junior Class. These Glee Clubs
were formed primarily to furnish music for
various school activities.
During the year, holiday exercises were held
with appropriate programs arranged by Miss
Perry. Exercises in observan-ce of Armistice

propriate for the occasion. The program as

With the above officers at the helm the
Dramatic Club started to repeat the triumphs
of former years in the histrionic art. The
Dramatic Club was organized in 1923, to
further the study of the drama and to super-
vise the production of the offerings of the
school. The club met every Thursday evening
for the study of different plays, for social
reasons, and to bring the juniors in closer
association with each other. At each meeting
a group was responsible for the success of the
evening and in every case the group worked
faithfully. The success of the various meet-
ings was due to cooperative work.
The first play given this year at the clubls
regular meeting was on the evening of Novem-
ber 17, the play being from the Harvard
Workshop, HTWO Crooks and a Ladyf' The
play was a type, and the cast did an excep-
tionally good piece of work in the production.

Miss Mary Lewis' project, an exhibition of
Folk Dances representative of twelve countries,
was presented on Dec. 13, under the super-
vision of Miss McDermott. The attractive
costumes, designed and made by Miss Lewis
according to the style of the country repre-
sented, were worn by the forty junior girls,
who took part in the dances. Along with
this, appropriate music added much to the
success of the project.

frolic was replete with comedy and wit and
showed the efforts of the girls who worked so
hard for its success. HThe Music Box Revuew

'fThree Wise Fools,l' the annual production
of the Gaveleers' Literary Society, was pre-

faithfully and were rewarded for their efforts.

sue when a young American arrives in Holland.
For some time it seems that Hans must lost

GAVELEERS LITERARY SOCIETY
The Gaveleers society, which was organized
five years ago, again came forward and in
different activities promoted the spirit of
HGoodfellowship,' for which it is noted. Pri-
marily the society was organized to train the
members along literary lines and to promote
goodfellowship among the entire student body.
In these aims the society has been successful.
The Gaveleer dance was a bright spot on
the social calendar. lt was a financial and
social success and brought the new members
of the school into closer association with the
older students. During the evening the Gave-
leer emblem was lighted and attracted com-
ment from those present. At an appointed
time the members gathered before the shield
and impressively sang the song of the society.
f'Three Wise Fools " the dramatic offering
of the society, was presented during two eve-
nings and both were marked with success.
ln all the workings of the society, nearly
every member has had some share in the
success. The men of this society have cer-
tainly gained a better spirit among themselves
and the members of the school because of their
willingness to help in every project, their loy-
altyto school affairs, and their general ffgood-
fellowship." Those who have left our school
to take up their work in the chosen profession
are high in their praise of the benefits gained
from their association with these fine men.
The officers of the society are: john Healey,
president: James Quinn, vice-president,
Thomas M. OiHoro, secretary-treasurer. To
Mr. McLean, the society's sponsor and faith-
ful friend, goes the sincere gratitude of the
graduating Gaveleers and the appreciation of
the remaining members.

THE MOHAWK CLUB
The Mohawk Club, which was organized
two years ago, with Mr. Harrington as its
sponsor, has enjoyed a year of successful acti-
vity. The purpose of this organization is to
promote a spirit of cooperation in the school,
social welfare in student life, professional bet-
terment, and to profit by the experiences of
the graduates. Professional talks and enter-
tainments -combined to make the upow-W0ws"
of the club enjoyable. Members of the school
faculty and prominent professional men con-
tributed to the meeting programs, which were
held every Monday evening at eight o'cl0ck.
On March 17, the club delighted the school
with an entertainment and dance. The en-
tertainment in the Assembly Hall was excel-
lent class, and the dance in the library was
enjoyed by the followers of the terpsichorean
art. The library was attractively decorated
and the Mohawk banner was displayed. At
10.35 o'clock the beat of the tom-tom called
the braves to the Hcamp-fire." With lights
low, the Mohawk charge was presented by the
members in a very impressive manner. The
offering ended with the singing of Auld Lang
Syne, the club song. Those who have had
the privilege of being a Mohawk realize the
value of its lessons and the spirit of loyalty
it has imbued in each member, and are better
men for it. The Club welcomes the student
who possesses the proper qualifications. The
officers of the club are: George P. Haley, presi-
dent, James C. Dolan, vice-presidentg Lester
P. Roy, secretaryg Clifton J. Phelps, treasurer.
The honorary members of the club were Mr.
Clancy, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Crosier. Our
always reliable friend, Mr. Harrington, guided

nature and to him the Mohawk Club is sin-

Maybe that was the reason for the organiza-

cultivate a greater feeling of sociability, but
whatever the cause, the result was the forma-
tion of the Day Girls' Association, which is an
ever-increasing factor in the Normal School.
There has been more cooperation between
the Day Girls and the Dormitory Girls this
year than in the past, and the hope is that
it will increase in the years to come. The
parties which have been conducted during the
year have helped to increase this friendship

MEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
In june, 1925, a meeting was called to
elect student OIIICBFS and a Faculty Advisor
for the Menls Athletic Association.
Mr. Clancy was chosen as Faculty Advisor,
and the following men as offlcersz President,
John F. Healey, vice-President, Clarence Ra-
bouing secretary, James C. Dolan, treasurer,
The qualities of leadership whi-c'h the mem-
bers of the Athletic Association knew were
embodied in these men were shown by the
success of the different enterprises undertaken
by the Athletic Association.
To William Ashline, treasurer of the Asso-
ciation, who resigned because of other activi-
ties, the association extends at this time its
sincere thanks for his services while holding
Athletics this year were placed on a firm,
sound basis. Football, Basket Ball, and Base-
ball were the major sports engaged in by the
members of the Association. The popularity
of these three was shown by the enthusiastic
support given by the student body and the
faculty at all home games.
Our Athletic Field is rapidly rounding into
shape. This spring a baseball diamond was
engineered and a backstop installed. This
work was done by the Practical Arts depart-
ment, under the direction of Mr. Clark H.
Morrell of the faculty.
The patronage and hearty support the
people of Fitchburg have given to our project,
our Athletic Field, is appreciated by every
member of the Association, and to everyone
who has in any way contributed to the sup-
port of athletics at Normal School, the asso-
ciation feels the helplessness of attempting
any expression of its appreciation on the

Capt. Haley, left tackle, a veteran of the
gridiron, was an admirable leader and a hard
tackler. He was a bulwark on the defense
and steadied the team at all times,
McNally, quarterback, was a field general
of high calibre.

backed up the defense with hard and frequent

for long gains and was a sensation in a broken
Forest, right halfback, was the other mem-
ber of the hard-working backfield. A pretty
tackler and good in leading interference.
Scott, veteran left end, played his usual
sterling game. Few plays circled his end and as
a receiver of the forward pass he had no peer.
Miller, left guard, was a tower of strength
in the line. He worked incessantly and in the
game with Dean was the best man on the field.
O"l'0ole, in the center of the line, played
a strong brand of football. Light, but game,
he broke through frequently and nailed plays
before they went under way.
Kiley, right guard, flanked the other side
of the pivot position. His knowledge of the
game made him a valuable asset.
Dolan, right tackle, a heady player, who
knew the game, he was a mountain of strength
to the right side of the line.
Carrigan, right end, was fast going down
under punts. A sure tackler and a good re-
ceiver of the forward pass.
Space forbids a detailed account of the other
men on the squad, but to them and the
Coaches Fitzgerald and Clancy should go a
full measure of credit.

1 BASKET BALL
Captain Rabouin, the diminutive forward,
a veteran of three years, was a good leader
and a hard worker. He was everywhere and
was a factor in all our victories.
Fitzgerald, crack forward, from the Heart
of the Commonwealth, was the scoring ace of
the outfit. From any angle and any time he
would drop them through the net with ma-
Carrigan, the Worcester flash, was at the
pivot position. Fast on the floor, master of
the dribble and a good shot, he was among
the leading scorers.
Scott, veteran of many battles, was a strong
defensive man. He broke up many plays and
scored frequently with beautiful long shots.
Dyer was the other pillar of the back court.
The former Clinton star guarded his man well
and started many plays which resulted in
scores. He was invaluable.
O'Toole was a mainstay because of his
ability to play any position. He played in
every game, was fast and reliable, and scored
when points were needed.
Clark and Fillback, who worked in the
center of the court, gave a good account of
themselves when called upon and should be
the mainstays of next yearls quintet.
Pinney and Phelps were reliable and ag-
gressive when sent to the forward court. Both
were clever with the ball and their all-around
work was commendable.
To Manager McDonnell goes the ribbon for
efficient service as a managerg to Coach Amiott
the sincere thanks and affection of the players:
and those who helped to make the season a
success, the association feels the helplessness
of words to express its appreciation.

Front Row---Carrigan, Dyer, Scott, Mc-Xuliffe, De Sousa, Grcnnon, Pinney
McAuliffe, captain and centerfielder, is an
ideal leader, a remarkable judge of a Hy ball,
and a timely and consistent hitter.
Scott, who wears the mask, is back in his
regular position. He steadies the pitchers,
works hard behind the plate, and hits when
runs are needed.
McQuirk, the pitching ace, is just rounding
into mid-season form. His knowledge of the
game combined with his good right arm makes
him king of the rubber.
Desousa is a reserve and is understudy to
his classmate. He is light, but he has control.
Fitzgerald, shortstop, takes his turn in the
box when called on. In the infield he smothers
fast grounders, and few pitchers can send him
back from the plate, if he advances to the bat.
Carrigan, first base, is showing the class of
a big leaguer. His height and reach give him
a decided advantage around the initial corner.
Roache, the veteran of the team, takes care
of the keystone sector in typical Roache style.
A hard and consistent hitter, a sure fielder.
Pelletier, who is guardian of the hot corner,
displays brilliant baseball on all occasions. His
powerful bat rings out hits for extra bases, and
as clean-up hitter he is a man to be feared.
O'Toole, left field, has experience in play-
ing the garden. His excellent fielding has cut
short many a rally and he is dangerous with
Dyer, who patrols the right field, has start-
led the team at bat by poling out long drives
and hitting consistently. To Coach Morrell and
Manager Gingras the association is indebted.

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
A successful season was enjoyed by the
Women's Athletic Association of F. N. S.,
1925-1926, under the leadership of Miss Mc-
Dermott and Miss Wood. The oflicers were:
President, Mary Dyer, Vice-President, Imelda
Lester, Secretary, Margaret Meegang Treas-
urer, Mary Duffy, Senior Representative,
Jessie Wood, junior Representative, Agatha
The season included tennis, hiking, and
hockey in the fall, bowling, winter sports, and
basket ball in the winter, and track and tennis
in the spring. A new t'Point System" was
devised, whereby a girl might earn points for
scholarship, sportsmanship by taking part in
various sports, etc. Letters, F. N. S., were
awarded to girls for 250 points, W. A. A.
Pins for SOO points, and Winged Victory Pins
for 1000 points. Cecile Boland was chairman
of the committee that worked out this system.
and decided to put on a t'Music Box Revue?
Friday, January 29, the Revue was presented
under the direction of Irene Shea for the bene-
lit of the Athletic Field.
Thursday, May 27, Miss McDermott left
for Denmark, where she is to study Danish
Folk Dancing, etc. We were all very sorry
that she could not remain with us through
june, but we are looking forward to having
her with us again next September. We were
very fortunate indded in having Miss Wood
in Miss McDermott's absence. She is always
ready and willing to help us in all athletic

One of the major sports for girls for the
fall athletic season was Field Hockey. A team
was selected from each division to compete
for class honors.
From the division teams two teams were
picked to represent the Senior and junior
classes. Two games were played between the
Seniors and Juniors, the juniors being the
victors in the first contest, Z to O, and the
Seniors winning the second game, 2 to 1.
These games were marked by much rivalry.
From the two teams a varsity team was
selected. Lillian Allyn was captain, and led
the team in a very efhcient manner.
Jessie Wood is our center forward. She
proved herself one of the speediest players in
taking the ball to the enemy's goal.
Clara Martinson, who played left inside,
was ever ready.
Helmi Flinck, the left end, was a star in
Lila Jarvela played right end and was re-
sponsible for many victories.

halfback exceedingly well.

knack of keeping track of the ball which made

at the left fullback position. She has a sure
shot and could always be depended upon.
At right fullback was Bernice Abbott. She
was always sure of her shot.

we were always confldent she could keep the
ball away from the goal.
Mary Dugan proved a very capable man-
