Conaty Editor-in-Chief Business Manager I 1 op : ( r ' rfOfciH S rf i By the courtesy of the MacMillan Polar Expedition " All the timorous, hesitating beauty of the early spring bloom clusters about the Saxifrage. It slips into the woods quietly, as though fearful that if it made a noise or attracted too much attention Jack Frost might send someone, or come himself, which would be worse, and punish it by retarding its growth. We find it on the top, or in the clefts of rocks, which it has been known to break asunder. In fact, to watch this little plant is a moral lesson in the achievements that can be brought about by quiet will power. " ; ' .

' ■ l ' l m To Mr. Hubbard, whose sympa- thetic nature and high ideals have won the hearts of all who have known him, we dedicate our Saxi- frage of nineteen twenty eight. %) y2yx{AyQya X y MR. G. F. HUBBARD . f Oyr€ tU CH tix It has been our intention to give the Class of 1928 the best yearbook that has ever been published by any class of Normal. As far as possible, we have woven the theme of Tradition through the book, the main one of which is the Saxifrage. The following paragraphs give a brief history as to why the Saxifrage was chos- en as our school flower, what our school colors mean, and what the flower should signify to us. The early Saxifrage, or " Rockbreaker " symbolizes gentleness and perseverance over- coming difficulties in the growth from seed to fruition, from lower to higher, from darkness to light. The colors white and gold are the school colors, chosen by the first class, and signify wisdom, inspiration, purity, and perfection. The Fitchburg Normal School pin is a cir- cle of gold with a conventionalized blossom of the early Saxifrage in white in the center and with a golden wreath of the leaves of the same plant, about the circumference. yOyi X nAAy 1.

Business Mwitoets The Normal School itself was first organized in the old high school building belonging to the city of Fitchburg, in 1895. The following year the school moved into its new building, and took charge of the schools in the Day Street and the Highland Avenue buildings, turned over according to contract, by the city to the State for use as schools of observation and practice. Somewhat later several model schools, or schools of observation were opened in the normal school building. The general aim was then, and has been through all the following years, to teach the history and theory of education together with child study and psychology and a more or less hasty re- view of subjects to be taught in the grades below the high school. In the year 1909 the Practical Arts Department was established at Normal and since then has proved itself to be a valuable course, its graduates teaching in practically every state in the East. f Commencement draws near. Our pleasant walks around these stately halls, and good times that we have had both in and out of doors while here at Normal will soon be just a memory. Pleasant memories are priceless, and to make them more vivid, the familiar haunts of our school days are portrayed on the pages following. ( OWDiM - -Ci. N S.

Mr. Arthur H. Lowe, a public spirited citizen, arranged for the purchase of this land and held it in trust until the state saw fit to buy it. At that time the land was merely a frog pond. After being filled in, the students held a field day, leveled it off and removed many tons of small stones. A few weeks ago the Governor signed the bill which approved of the ap- propriation for; money enough to purchase the field and make it part of our own campus. • vv y Nr ' ' " v»v y " Here you may find when many years have fled Those whom we owe our honor and respect— The faculty who fashioned our crude minds, A seeming thankless task, but fearing not.

H Almd Itldter In days ago, when life, we dreamed. Was ideal as it seemed. And hopes of untaught youth soared high, While only joy came nigh; ' Twas then, with vision clear we chose, And to that choice we rose, With courage strong And hearts of song. To carry thy ideal on! CHORUS So, flag of Alma Mater, float On eternal winds of praise ! For thee, unnumbered hosts today Their willing voices raise. Throughout the world their tiny flame From thy great light still gleams. While youth and age united claim The home where fortune beams ! In days to come, if life laid bare Seems far more gray than fair, Or if success with us climbs high, While only joy come nigh ; ' Tis then, in phght or might we ' ll rise — Thy sp irit never dies — - With courage strong And hearts of song To carry thy ideal on ! -Mollie Wild. o o o Senior Class Song We are the class of ' 28, Raising her standards high. We aim to do, not just to dream, Insure fame which will not die. CHORUS We ' ll try with our best to win, To live up to every rule, We ' re here to succeed in every deed, So here ' s to our Normal School. We have the spirit, the kind that binds. Our ideals the truth and right, Our hopes realized in every way. And true to the Purple and White. The Seniors first you see— homage to them; They are veterans whoVe stood the test; The Second Year Students are next in line, We leave you with this thought— Success be Thine. And last the Juniors, brother class of ours. To you we give the torch that we have borne. ■ Junior High School lU. LILLIAN M. SMITH, Pres. JOSEPH M. DOLAN, Vice-Pres. MARY E. HUGHES, Sec. HERBERT J.

Class Ristori] JUNIOR YEAR 1927-1928 On a warm September morning in the year 1926, the Juniors entered Fitchburg Normal School, cautious but unafraid. Their eagerness to meet new friends and readiness to adapt themselves to new situations showed that already they had imbibed some of the school spirit. On the sixth of October, the Junior Reception took place, in which the Juniors were formally presented to the faculty. As soon as the Juniors became acquainted with each other thej elect- ed officers to guide them thru their strenuous course. They chose Row- ena Mason, president; James O ' Leary, vice-president; Alice Senuta, sec- retary; George Murray, treasurer; and Miss Conlon, faculty advisor. During the next few months the two Senior classes provided the Juniors with entertainment. The Hallowe ' en held terrors for some and enjoyment for all. The spirit at the Student Government and Day Girls ' Association banquet was indicative of the co-operation that exists between the " day " and " dorm " girls. The masquerade party, with its variety of costumes and novel en- tertainment, sent all home filled with stories of happy times during the first months of F. N. S. The full significance of the spirit of Christmas dawned upon every- one at the Christmas banquet, which was held in true Old English style. Page one hundred six M. Class tiislori] -- continued Then came St. Valentine ' s Day. The Seniors had come to the end of their reign. The Junior party showed that the Juniors could very well fill the place that the Seniors had just abdicated. The merry month of May brought us " blue days and fair " and the Senior promenade. It was a gala night for the Seniors, but the Juniors enjoyed seeing their upper classmates in their glory. With June, came Class Day and graduation. The Seniors were leav- ing, but the Juniors had shown thruout the year that they could fill their places very well. SENIOR CLASS 1927-1928 When we entered in the fall we were upperclassmen, ready to assume the weight of our responsible positions. To make our Juniors feel at home, we entertained them at a party, then, we initiated them. Feeling that we needed a masculine hand to guide us thru ' the coming year, we elected Thomas Carrigan, president; Doris Drew, vice-president; Catherine Hammond, secretary; George Murray, treasurer; and Miss Williams, faculty advisor. At the Junior reception, the members of the Junior class were form- ally presented to the faculty. Then there followed in quick succession, social events which are so instrumental in promoting good fellowship among the students. Although the Hallowe ' en party was dreaded by the Juniors, the mem- bers of the J. H. S. IV. class with the aid of the faculty, sent everyone home to dream of ghosts, black cats, and witches. To further co-operation and comradeship between the " Day " and " Dorm " girls, the Student Government and Day Girls ' Association held their banquet in conjunction. The clever imagination of our students was brought to light at the masquerade party with its variety of costumes and entertainment. On December 9, the Massachusetts State Board of Education held a reception at which Mr. Charles M. Herlihy was formally welcomed as principal of Fitchburg Normal School. The Old English banquet and the carolling at the community Christ- mas tree helped to instill the Christmas spirit in our hearts. In accordance with the provisions of the annual Todd lectureship. Dr. Charles H. Judd delivered a lecture on " Social Inheritance " which shed a new light on the teaching profession. Then came May and the Senior promenade. How many hearts beat faster while dancing in the old-fashioned garden to the strains of a waltz ! To the untiring efforts of Miss Perry we owe the delightful concert that was given by the boys ' and girls ' glee clubs. Class Day, Singout, and Graduation. Shall this be the end ? No, for as we climb the road to success, we shall always look back to our Alma Mater, where first we received our inspiration. Page one hundred seven AMBITIOUS MARRIED?

" Page one Mindred seventeen ' — sv- " w ' i - ' vv ' y Socials The Junior reception was held in the hbrary. Here all the Juniors were presented formally to the members of the faculty. At this recep- tion some of the Seniors were formally introduced to Mr. HerHhy, our new ' ' ) principal, also Mrs. Herlihy, by Thomas Carrigan, the Senior class presi- dent. Student Government banquet, an annual event, was held November 11, 1927, in the dining hall. This was a joint-banquet given by the Day Girls and Dormitory Girls. Abbie Gaughan acted as toast mistress Louise Lothrop, president of the Dormitory Student Government gave an interesting talk, and Mary Roache, president of the Day Girls. This was the first time that Mr. Herlihy formally addressed the students. A short entertainment was given and during the banquet the school songs were sung. After the banquet a dance was held in the Hbrary until eleven o ' clock. The Hallowe ' en party given by J. H. S. IV. was held October 28, 1927 in the Hbrary. The hall was decorated in orange and black. A great many of the alumni returned for this party. The different members of the J. H. S. course entertained. After the entertainment dancing was held until ten o ' clock, when we adjourned to the lobby where the regular Hallowe ' en refreshments were served. Then dancing was resumed until eleven o ' clock. On November 22, 1927 a masquerade was held in the library for all the students. There was general dancing until nine o ' clock. Then the feature of the evening, the grand march, took place. The students ar- rayed in different costumes marched around in front of the judges. The prizes were awarded for the prettiest, funniest, most original, most elabo- rate, then dancing followed. A typical old English banquet was held December 22, 1927 in the din- ing hall. The banquet was opened by the carollers who walked among the tables singing Christmas hymns. The lord and lady then entered pre- ceeded by the pages. Leone Cyr took the part of the lord, Abbie Gaughan, the lady, and the Reisman twins were the pages. The cook, Ann McCa- very, carrying the " boards head " entertained us with songs. Mabel Rem- ington and Mary Murray completed the scene by bringing in the " Yule- Log. " Mildred Haggerty, the jester, called upon the different students to do some stunt which she thought appropriate. When the banquet was ended, the procession out of the dining-hall was led by the lord and lady, followed by the faculty and members of the school. It has been the custom for many years for the Junior class to give the Valentine party, so on Feb. 10, 1928 it was given in the library. Under the leadership of Ray Clark the hall was very prettily decorated. A de- lightful entertainment was given by the Junior boys in the form of a show they had seen. Each boy related some scene he liked in the show, then other members of the Junior class acted it out. Dancing and refreshments followed the entertainment. Among the guests were several members of the Alumni.

Grad- uation left the club with a membership of thirteen to start the, new year. The total membership was increased to thirty with the addition of seventeen new members. Under its president, James Connors, the club enjoyed one of the most successful years in its history. The other officers who aided him are: John Provasoli, vice-president; Norman Rosch, treasurer; and Leo Connolly, secretary. During the year many prominent men gave the members of the club some helpful and amusing talks. The members had the opportunity to hear our new principal, Mr. Herlihy, speak before them. The students of the school, as well as the members, have benefited by the club. The annual entertainment and dance was held on March 17. The hall was attractively decorated with the club colors, and a short minstrel shoY given before the dance, added a touch to the occasion. In April the club presented its annual dramatic production. Mr. Ferry, of Leominster, was engaged to present a costume recital, " The Songs of Four Centuries. " The club also presented the school with athletic pictures of this year ' s teams for the men ' s recreation room. The Mohawks extend to Mr. Harrington, the club sponser, their ut- most thanks for the interest and help he has given them. lit Paffe one hundred nineteen GAVELEERS Front Row — Mr. MacLaan (Sponsor), Newton, Anderson (vice-president), Wil- kinson (president), Leighton (secretary-treasurer), Tunstall, Keiler.

Qdueleers " Literary Society " GOODFELLOWSHIP " The Gaveleers ' have successfully completed their seventh year. They presented the play " The First Year " as their dramatic effort this year. This play was quite a novelty, a sthe female parts were taken by men. Needless to say, it was a howling success, and the boys received many a favorable comment from our fair co-eds as to the way they impersonated girls. The annual dance was enjoyed bj the whole school. Brothers Thompson and Tunstall entertained with the skits, " I ' m Gonna Dance with the Guy What Brung Me " and " Oh, How We Love Our Alma Mater. " " The Gav, " a paper issued each month and sent to Gaveleers Alum- ni, was continued this year. This paper keeps our Alumni in touch with the doings of the club. The officers of the society for this year are: Leonard Wilkinson president; Alfred Andersen, vice-president; Harvard Leighton, secretary and treasurer. The Gaveleers wish to thank Mr. MacLean for his interest in the club and for his many helpful suggestions. Page one hundred twenty . l v ' ORCHESTRA Front Row — Hughes, E. Tuttle, H. Sawyer, E.

It has officiated at various social functions of the school and has met every Wednesday evening in order that its presentations might be the more enjoyable. To our dir ector, Miss Perry, goes the sincere gratitude and appre- ciation of our members for her kind leadership throughout the year. Page one hundred tiventy-one % Mens ' Qlee Club The Mens ' Glee Club is by no means a new club to F. N. S. In the year 1922 a large club was active. It was not only a success in all of its undertakings but was equal to many similar clubs of the higher schools of education. Since 1924 due to some unknown reason the club has been inactive. However in the Fall of 1927 it was revived, with the object of assisting in school functions and to give the men an opportunity to knew music for the pleasure of singing it. Rehearsals have been held once a week under the faithful direction of Miss Perry. The songs that the club sang were chiefly of a college nature, although some of the better known pieces such as: " The Winter Song, " " When Good Fellows Get Together, " by Bullard; " The Bells of Shandon, " by Nevin, and " Ole Uncle Moon, " by Scott were studied. The first appearance of the glee club was at one of the Tuesday morning assemblies at which time they sang a number of col- lege songs. The next performance was at the reception of our Principal held in the large assembly hall. The club rendered some of the better known compositions. At a concert in the Spring the club combined with the Women ' s Glee Club will put on a very interesting program, which is the result of many rehearsals held during the winter months. The officers of the club are Louis Fontaine, president; John Rice, vice-president; Armand Richard, custodian of music. The Men ' s Glee Club extend to Miss Perry, director of the club, their sincere appreciation of her interest in and of her varied elTorts towards making the club a success. %l Page one hundred twenty-two Qirls ' Qlee Cub President — — - -- Elizabeth Meade Vice-President — - Helen McCarthy Secretary-Treasurer Mary Hughes The F. N. S. Girls ' Glee Club has accomplished much during the year 1927- ' 28. From the first rehearsal, which came in October, it was a de- decided fact that this would be the glee club ' s most successful year. Early in January, the club appeared before the Fitchburg Teachers ' Associa- tion ; in February, before the Chamber of Commerce ; and throughout the year the glee club has been most successful in its school and public pre- sentations, which carried on an ambitious program. Much credit is due Miss Elizabeth Perry for it was she who led our glee club to success. We all know the way she unselfishly gave us her time and advice, and worked us, ' til we have come to admire her for her remarkable ability, and to respect her for her generous character. The success of the club is due to her and her work, and our earnest hope is, that the Girls ' Glee Club of F. N. S. will continue on its present suc- cessful career, under her capable guidance.

Men ' s Student Qouernment The Men ' s Student Government is a comparatively new organization in our school. Its purpose is similar to that of the Women ' s Student Government. As yet, because of its infancy, it is simply a mass meeting of all the men in the school. However, during the course of last year it served to make for better feeling between the students and the faculty. This year it gave a dance which was a successful feature on the social calendar. This organization deserves credit since it is the first time in the history of the school that the men have tried to unite as a group. We believe that as the organization grows many things will be accomplished. President H. Leighton Vice-President ._ L. Wilkinson Secretary Leo Connolly ' ? Page one hundred tiventy-four i.

The guests of honor were: Mr. and Mrs. Herlihy, Miss Bradt, Mr. and Mrs. Anthony, Mr. and Mrs. Ran- dall, Miss Perry, Miss Conlon, Miss Margaret Kirby, who represented last year ' s council, and Miss Mary Roache represented the Day Girls ' Asso- ciation. All members of last year ' s council and members of the faculty who eat regularly in the dining room were invited. Page one hundred twenty-five 1 «-ft I Day Qirls ' Associalion The officers of the Day Girls ' Student Government Association for the present year are, Mary Roache, president; Betsy Dormin, vice-president; Cecilia Ward, secretary; Elsa Fowelin, treasurer. The organization ' s purpose is to band together the girls M ho commute and give them repre- sentatives in the affairs at school. A joint banquet of this association and the Dormitory Student Government was held in the Palmer Hall dining room on November 11, 1927. This is the second annual banquet given jointly by these two organizations ' and we feel that this is a pleasant way to bring about a more friendly feeling between the " dorm " girls and the day girls. We sincerely hope that this custom will be continued in the future. :u: Page one hundred twenty-six Do you delight in games, in sports and play, In surge and rush of football battle keen.

ITlen ' s Athletic Association At the close of the school year 1927 the Men ' s Athletic Association chose the following officers for the coming year: Robert Thompson, president; Wilfred Grenon, vice-president; James Connors, secretary; Thomas Carrigan, treasurer. This year the budget system which was started last year was carried on, and this year has been the best year financially the M. A. A. has had. Three sports were sponsored this year, soccer, basketball, and base- ball. Soccer was taken on to replace football which was dropped last year owing to the limited amount of time available for the sport. Our faculty advisors were each given one sport to supervise. Mr. McLean had soccer; Mr. Westor, basketball and Mr. Randall, baseball. We wish to express our appreciation for the great help these men have been to us this year. Especially in working out a system of points where- by every man in school has a chance to win some award. We hope this point system will be working smoothly next year, and we are sure that the men will feel amply repaid for their membership in this association.

Back Row — Provasoli (manager), Roy, Keiler, Miller, Rosch (assistant manager). Soccer Early in the fall of ' 27, the Men ' s A. A. voted to organize a soccer team to take the place of football, which had been discontinued the pre- vious year. Leonard Wilkinson was elected by a unanimous vote to carry out the duties of a student coach. John Provasoli was elected manager at the same meeting, and immediately set to work arranging a schedule. Ow- ing to the late start only four games could be arranged. At the first call to practice, eighteen men reported. The townspeople immediately took in- terest in the new game and five members of the Crocker-Burbank team very kindly offered to coach the team in the fine points of the game. Mgr. Provasoli arranged a practice game with the Crocker-Burbank team. In this game, every player realized that he was playing against a team of veterans. Normal showed up wonderfully well but lost the game 2 to 1. The next game was played with Bridgewater Normal. Fitchburg lost this one 3 to 2. We were fortunate enough to secure a game with the Harvard varsity team, which was played at Soldiers ' Field, Cambridge. The boys played a very strong and rugged game but were forced to bow to be a better drilled team to the tune of 3 to 2. The last game of the sea- son was played on our own field with the Crocker-Burbank team again as our opponent. This game resulted in the worst beating that Normal re- ceived throughout the season. The visiting team won, 4 to 1. Although the team did not win any of its four games, it showed that it had plenty of fight and spirit and did not fear to meet even the strong- est teams.

Under the able management of Jim Connors, sixteen games were on our schedule this year. They are as follows: -New Hampton -Gushing Academy -St. John ' s Academy -Salem Normal -Lowell Tech. -Gushing Academy -Salem Normal -Bridgewater Normal To Dick Roberts, our able coach, we extend many thanks for his won- derful work in getting the team in shape. The team was made up of the following men: J. Daly, J. Sullivan, F. Sullivan, F. Gavanagh, A. Rich- ard, J. O ' Leary, B. Fillback, L Wilkinson, Gapt. Garrigan, Mgr. Gonnors, Goach Roberts.

The outstanding event this year was the W. A. A. week-end, February 3, 1928. Friday evening a bridge party was held in the library; the first time that a party like this had ever been attempted. Saturday afternoon the varsity basketball team played the Alumni team and pinned a terrible lacing on our former graduates. The president and vice-president attended a conference at Bridgewater Norm- al, at which all the Women ' s Athletic Associations of all the Massachu- setts Normal Schools had representatives. They received many helpful suggestions and came back after a dehghtful trip, with many stories of good sportsmanship shown them during their stay.

While this game has not developed as rapidly as hockey, we have the satisfaction of knowing that this game is steadily increasing in popularity, as the larg- er number of candidates each year proves. HIKING Many students turned out to the hikes to the Deserted Village, Roll- stone Hill, and Lunenburg, which were arranged by Rosalie Bailey. The hikes that were enjoyed the most were the breakfast hikes, at which we had a great time cooking our breakfasts over a campfire. GOLF Many of our girls have enjoyed the game of golf which is under the direction of Josephine Tarbell. The W. A. A. furnished the necessary equipment and we are proud to say that this game is on the gain, too. BOWLING Bowling practice was held in the central bowling alleys, twice a week under the direction of Ada Fookes; Mondays for the Seniors and Wed- nesdays for the Juniors. Competitive games were played between the different divisions. BASEBALL Practice for both Juniors and Seniors was held every Monday on the diamond under the direction of Margaret Curry. The division teams played each other and then from these the " Harvard " and " Yale " teams were picked and a final game was played between these two teams. TENNIS CZ Mary Murray proved herself a competent leader as head of tennis. Practices were held regularly twice a week. If the weather would not permit outside practice, it was held in the gym. The Spring tournament was the most exciting event of our tennis season. II Page one hundred thirty-four 4 " tiockey Our hockey season this year came through with flying colors under the able direction of Elina Heikkila, the head of this sport. A great deal of raw material poured forth on the field at the beginning of the season but the finished product was well worth the effort put into this sport. This year, for the first time, the girls on the All-Normal team played the Arlington High School hockey team. The game was played on Crocker Field and the whole school turned out and gave their support. The score was 6-1 in favor of Arlington. The following are the members of the All-Normal teams: Center Forward .._ Jessie Wood — L.

Division, class, and varsity games were played and the All-Normal team was selected. The season ended by holding a banquet for all the people who had been on teams in the lobby of the Normal School. Page one hundred thirty- five basketball " Yes, teach me to stand by the side of the road And cheer as the winners go by. " With such a spirit the basketball season at Fitchburg Normal came through with flying colors under able coaching of Louis O ' Brien. " Prac- tice makes perfect " — and practice they did. Every Monday and Wed- nesday nights the girls were seen in " gym " outfits working earnestly.

The tones in clothing are not quite so daringly light, perhaps, but the range is wider and much more attention has been given to practicability, neatness, and harmony of effect. Much the same thing ' is true in accessories — ties, hose, shirts, and the like. Plenty of color, but neater patterns.
