Q V. w w X h Saxifrage Memories Published by the CLASS OF 1929 State Normal School Fitchburg, Massachusetts Volume Number Eight dedication To Mr. Harrington, whose wholehearted friendship will be cherished as one of our most pleasant memories, we affectionately dedicate this book. Mr. Arthur C. Harrington foreword WE have endeavored to submit for your approval a yearbook worthy of the title " The Saxifrage of Memories " . The book ob- tains its name from a little flower which may be seen growing on the campus. This little flower, the Saxifrage, has been selected as the school flower. The theme " Memories " has been chosen because of its sympathetic appeal to ideals. We have tried, as far as possible, to follow this theme throughout. The colors of the school, which are white and gold were chosen by the first class, and signify wisdom, inspiration, purity and perfection. The school pin is a circle of gold with a con- ventionalized blossom of the early Saxifrage in white in the center and with a golden wreath of the leaves of the same plant, about the circum- ference. Purple and gold are the senior class colors selected because they are symbolic of loyalty and sageness. School history THE year 1895 saw the establishment of a teacher training institution in Fitchburg. This institution, the State Normal School, first held classes in the old high school building which be- longed to the city. The next year, 1896, the Normal building was completed and the school moved into its new quarters. In conjunction with this the state took over the Day Street and the Highland Avenue buildings to be used as schools of observation and practice. Several model schools were later opened in the Normal School building. In 1909 a Practical Arts Department was established. This course proved to be successful in attracting students until at the present time many applicants have to be turned away for lack of quarters for them. The aim of the school is to teach the history and theory of education with observation and practice in the training schools. Associating with this aim is the teaching of child study and psychology and the academic and practical art subjects of grades from the first through the junior high school.

When you are old and grey and all alone, And no guests come because of stormy weather, Remember all the gay parades you stood ; That Time has swept into the dust together. And so remembering what year on year Has dealt with justly, though with all its care — Let Normal appear, as all lost things appear More lovely and bewilding, more fair. Than any other place you knew your whole life through To bring you disillusion in the end all over. And in that hour may you not regret that you Forsook Normal to accept another lover.

And tho ' ts 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 comes nigh; ' Tis then, in plight or might we ' ll rise- Thy spirit never dies — With courage strong And hearts of song To carry thy ideal on ! —Mollie Wild dffdministration To those whose unceasing service Has built and preserved this place, Whose wisdom, whose kindness, whose guidance, Have helped us our problems to face, In grateful and fond consecration We turn now with tho ' ts that must last, And the hope that our lives in the future May reflect what they taught in the past. v V vv vvs v ' y » v vy w kp sy v v sp a SAXIFRAGE Pale nurslings of the early waking year, Forerunner of the coming spring, Shy creeping round the edge Of broken granite ledge Soon as the drifts of winter disappear; Your tender rootlets fondly cling Close in the frost-made rifts, Your slender stalk uplifts Sweet clustering flowers of hope our waiting hearts to cheer. You claim no favored spot of meadow ground Where violets and daisies grow, But o ' er earth ' s bosom bare You softly venture where No other seemly covering would be found ; You brave the wintry winds that blow Through withered grasses sere ; Yait patiently to hear Young bright-eyed golden buttercups glad waken all around. — Isaac Bassett Choate MR.

SENIOR CLASS SONG We believe, oh, we believe in striving To attain the goal that is our end, To evercome all obstacles we ' ll meet F. N. S. will be our friend. CHORUS To Alma Mater, we pledge true Our faith and loyalty; And as the years go drifting by Our spirit fine you ' ll see — A guiding star to lead us on We know you ' ll always be, As Seniors all, we stand as one, To give our best to thee ! — Marie B. Upton and Edna P. Shea Qlass History JUNIOR YEAR 1927-1928 The juniors made a rather brave but cautious appearance on that memorable day, September 14, 1927. It was all rather new and amazing to them, nevertheless they entered the blazing fray of battle and emerged victorious. After a formal presentation to the faculty the juniors became acquainted with each other and with the upper classmen. They readily made friends and later chose the following class officers: Thomas Hughes, President; Helen Barnicle, Vice-President; Gertrude FitzGerald, Secretary; Joseph Valentine, Treasurer and Miss Conlon, Faculty Advisor. It was a weird, never-to-be-forgotten occasion when the faltering steps of the juniors wove their way to Normal Hall to attend the Halloween party given by the upper classmen. Nevertheless, when there, it was worth the previous mental torture to see our faculty entertain. The " Day " girls and the " Dorm " girls were brought together at their annual banquet which showed the fine co-operative spirit existing between these two organiza- tions. Before going home for the Thanksgiving week-end all attended a very novel and fascinating masquerade in very attractive costumes. The Christmas banquet signified the old English type of spirit and much ceremony was held, from the carrying of the Yule Log to the antics of the merry jester. After the banquet the Christmas spirit was intensified by carroling thrdughout the city. With the giving of the Valentine Party the senior dominance came to an end. This party made know to everyone that the juniors had entered into the spirit of the school and were- well able to follow in the footsteps of the model seniors. It was a solemn moment when the purple and gold banner was unveiled and the class song was sung. During the month of May the " Spring Spirit " entered and with it the Senior Class Promenade which made the members of the Junior Class look forward to theirs in the far-seeming future. June brought Class Day followed by the graduation of a class which inspired the juniors with sincere desires to fill successfully the places vacated by this outgoing class. SENIOR YEAR 1928-1929 Back once more after an enjoyable summer to assume the honorable responsibility of being seniors was all that lay before us. Part of the weighty duty was to initiate the " freshies " ; this was done with much enjoyment and zest. The entering class was now called the Freshman Class. The Senior Class composed only of those students who were graduating. The remaining group classified as the Junior Class. Class History — continued The class officers were elected soon after entering. The ones chosen were as fol- lows: President, Edward Fillback ; Vice-President, Margaret Proctor; Secretary, Aini Heikkila; Treasurer, George Murray; and Miss Williams as Faculty Advisor. The annual Junior Reception now known as the Freshman Reception took place and the freshmen were formally presented to the faculty. Despite the fantastic scenes and the weird spirits the Halloween Party was held as schedule and was a real enjoyable party. The good comradeship expressed by the " Dorm " and " Day " girls was evidenced by their joint banquet. Variety and entertainment was the " word " at the Masquerade given by the seniors. The " Weatherman " did not permit us to go carroling at Christmas, but this did not prevent the spirit of the season from being instilled into our hearts which was solemnly accomplished by the Old English Banquet. Both the Gaveleers and the Mohawks entertained very successfully by their in- formal dances. On April 10, in accordance with the provisions of the annual Henry Todd Lecture- ship, Dr. Harlow Shapley, Professor of Astronomy at Harvard University and Director of the Harvard College Observatory, Cambridge, delivered a lecture on " The Galaxies of Galaxies " . This was received with much enthusiasm by our faculty, friends, and student body. We now look forward to our Senior Promenade, which, as we anticipate it, gives much pleasure. Then Class Day, and our Class Play and Graduation ! Alas ! Our happy days at F. N. S. will be ended, but never forgotten.

What can all those taxicabs be doing, rushing up to Palmer and Miller? Just look down at the athletic field, isn ' t that Lindy landing? And up over Normal Hall, wiry do you suppose the Graf Zeppelin is manouvering to land ? Someone tells us that the Leviathan is sailing up the Nashua towards Fitchburg! What is it all about? Why are those reporters and camera men gathered on Normal steps? We ' ll let you in on the secret. It ' s the return of the class of 1930, the first real Junior Class of F. N. S. The Juniors certainly started in right, full of enthusiasm and " pep " . Their first undertaking was to elect class officers and they showed their good judgment in choos- ing the following: Cornelius Powers, President; Helen Barnicle, Vice-President; Char- lotte Gould, Secretary; Joseph Brennan, Treasurer; and Miss Conlon, Faculty Advisor. Then came the Halloween Party, the first real undertaking of the class. Of course the junior reception line was a grea t shock to all and its fine work was equaled by the decoration, the entertainment, and the refreshment committees. The mystic future was revealed to those lucky enough to have their palms read by Miss Doland to whom the juniors owe a great deal of the success of their party. A short entertainment was given and only those who saw the " Human Ford " can appreciate the mechanical makeup of the juniors. And the class song! Can anyone dispute the musical ability of the sixty- two juniors? We certainly enjoyed that class party which set a high standard of achieve- ment for the other class parties. On looking over the records of various school organizations we find many junior names occupying prominent places on the roll books. We find Cornelius Powers on the " Saxifrage " Staff. On the Executive Board of W. A. A. of fifteen members, seven are juniors including the president and vice-president. T he Debating Council has several junior representatives and Margaret Ward, one of their number is the president of the Massachusetts State Normal School Debating League. On any of our athletic teams are found many juniors who uphold the honor of their class as well as that of the school. The entire teaching in the Normal Junior High for the year has been successfully managed by the juniors assisted by the supervisors both in the shops and in the academic class rooms. We are sure that the juniors will continue their fine work next year and be a credit to Normal as seniors. Glass of 1931 JOHN C. O ' MALLEY, President ANNA M. FALVEY, Vice President DOROTHY M.

Our banner is flying; No use denying ; We are the class they can ' t surpass; We ' re proud of our banner Loyal and friendly, never such a class before, Here we are, Oh here we are The Class of nineteen thirty and one. The first official meeting of the first Freshman Class of F. N. S. was held in the large assembly hall Tuesday, November 27, 1928 for the purpose of electing officers. The following officers were chosen : President John O ' Mai.ley, Fitchburg Vice-President Anne Falvey, Holyoke Secretary Dorothy Turcotte, Fitchburg Treasurer William Cronin, Worcester On December 4, 1928, Mr. Ralph F. Weston was elected the Freshman Class Faculty Advisor. At this same meeting Miss Margery Keyes became the freshman representative on the Finance Committee. Two weeks later committees were chosen from each division to investigate the advisability of choosing a school ring or a class ring. A special committee was chosen to elect class colors. The next important event for the Freshman Class was scheduled to take place on February 15, 1929. This necessitated the election of chairmen for the various com- mittees. The ones elected were : Decoration Committee Irene Fisk Entertainment Committee John Power Refreshment Committee Margaret Hanley Music Committee Edward Harris Cleanup Committee John Geary The class song was composed and set to the tune of " The Wooden Soldiers " . This song reflects the ardor, the zeal, and the co-operative spirit of the Freshman Class. In order to be ready to sing this song at the Valentine Part} ' the Freshman Class met several times during the two preceding weeks before the party was to take place. The memorable date finally arrived and the annual Valentine Party sponsored by the first year class was held. The entertainment, which showed by its flawlessness its careful directing and coaching, was agreeably received. Following the entertainment the class colors were unfurled and the class song was sung. After this, refreshments were served in the alcove. For those who did not enjoy dancing, bridge games were pro- vided. The Class of 1931 must be congratulated on its first adventure in the social world. The seniors going out need have no fear of the Class of 1931 not holding up the traditions and the honor of F. N. S. Our athletic days were happy, Though they ' ve passed away, When we bring them back to mind, They seem like yesterday. O ' Leary, (President) ; Branley (Secretary) ; Sullivan (Treasurer) ; Lanza (Vice President). Men ' s Athletic Association During the past year the Men ' s Athletic Association not only continued to use to good advantage the " Point System " , but also the Budget System which was started three years ago. Each sport was alotted its share of money and it was found that the managers have had no particular cause for worry, financially. Through the efforts of Mr. Lanza, the Athletic Association was this year fortunate enough to secure Mr. Ray Comerford as coach of the basketball team. The record of the team itself stands out in praise of the new coach ' s fine work. For the benefit of those members who enjoy winter sports, the organization voted to buy three new sleds. These were put to extensive use soon after they were purchased. The Men ' s A. A. wishes to thank the faculty advisors for the aid they have afforded the association this year. The managers are especially thankful for the assistance of their respective advisors. The new system, whereby dues were paid at the office on entering school in the fall helped the association treasurer a great deal and it is sincerely hoped that this idea will be carried on in the future. The senior members of the Athletic Association extend best wishes for the coming year. First row, left to right — J. Anderson, E. France (Captain), W. Sautter. Second row — F. Cavanagh, F. Miller, E.

The duties of coaching the team rested on a student and George Murray was elected while Edward France was chosen captain. As the games could only be played on Saturday, Manager Norman Rosch faced difficulty in securing games. Even with his handicap a large num- ber of men reported for practice and from them a team Was chosen. The season began with the Crocker-Burbank team of Fitchburg, a team composed of ex-English stars. The game was hard fought and fast, the local team finally coming out ahead with a score of 4 to 3. Normal next journeyed to Boston to play the far more experienced Northeastern eleven. This proved to be a setback, the score being 7 to 1. Nevertheless this game brought out the good and bad points of the team. Changes were made and Normal when it met the Alumni, gave them a severe trimming, 5 to 0. The last game was played at Bridgewater on a muddy field and against incle- ment weather. This advantage gave the experienced Bridgewater team a 5 to victory. These games proved that Normal ' s inexperience was the factor accounting for its defeats. This was offset by each member of the team, who did his best to help make the team a success. Though odds were against him he was willing to fight to a Page one hundred four i-f ir Si i-«S r i . - S Standing, left to right — F. Geary (Assistant Manager), C. Motyka, F. Needham, R. Ward, H.

Basketball The basketball season of 1928-29 has proved very successful for the Normal School five. The schedule this year was an unusually heavy one, the number of games played was thirteen. " Bruno " Fillback was elected to captain the team throughout the season while " Joe " Lanza assumed the managerial duties. Before the season began the Men ' s A. A. decided to elect a new coach. From among the list of candidates the man chosen for the position was Ray Comerford, coach of Leominster High. Practice was held twice a week and sometimes three when the gym was available. A large number of candidates, including many freshmen, turned out for the first practice. The five veterans, Capt. Fillback, Branley, F. Cavanagh, O ' Leary and F. Sullivan remained from the previous year and around these men Coach Comerford molded his team. Under his capable system a team was well rounded into shape and the season began. Of the thir- teen games played Normal won eight and lost five. With the exception of the Deer- field game, the victories recorded by the opponents were won only by a small margin of one or two points. In all the games the members of the squad showed co-operation and grit, two valuable assets in the making of a good team. Assumption proved the winner in the first game by a score of 19 to 18 which shows that this game was contested closely. The outstanding victories of Normal were those over Lowell Textile, Cashing Academy and Keene Normal. The latter two teams w T ere defeated twice each and were easy victories. In the Lowell game, however, Normal was at its best and won 25 to 19. This was perhaps the hardest fought game of the season since Lowell had overcome Paye one hundred five Bas etb xll — continued man) ' of the leading colleges in this section. The contest proved unfortunate for Normal in one respect in that it lost a bulwark of defense in " Jim " O ' Leary, who fractured his ankle and was out for the remainder of the season. In the remaining games of the season the boys kept up their fight and spirit and under the capable leadership of Capt. Fillback brought to a close a successful season. With graduation in June the team will lose the brilliant playing of Fillback, F. Cavanagh, F. Sullivan and O ' Leary, leaving Sautter, Branley and Ward to start next year. With this promising material there is no reason why Normal cannot develop another successful team. SCHEDULE OF 1928-29 Game Normal Opponents Jan. 5 Assumption College 18 19 Jan. 9 Mass.

Baseball At a meeting of the Men ' s A. A. early in the spring the members decided that they would attempt to conduct the baseball organization on the same basis as soccer by elect- ing a student coach. " Bing " Miller and " Bill " Branley, manager and captain, respec- tively, were elected to fill this office. The prospects of developing a successful team this season were especially bright. The veterans remaining from the last year ' s team were Capt. Branley, Cavanagh, O ' Leary, Anderson, France, and Perrault. At the call for candidates many promising freshmen appeared and Normal seemed assured of securing a team of fighting players who would never lose grit. Games have been scheduled with such teams as Worcester Trade, Assumption College, Bridgewater Normal, Baypath, St. Anselms College, and Keene Normal. Page one hundred seven Interclass Qames The interclass games were conducted by two members of the senior class as their project. The two men this year who assumed -this responsibility were " Jim " O ' Leary and " Joe " Lanza. They arranged all s chedules and rules pertaining to the carrying on of the sports. All questions concerning a sport in these activities were brought before them. A division was made by which one took charge of soccer and the other basket- ball. In the spring both put their efforts to the track athletics. Mere interest was found this fall in soccer matches between the classes. Each division was represented strongly at the beginning, but Senior II finally fought its way to gain first place after each team had played twice. The Senior team was composed of Capt. Miller, Lakso, Moran, Cavanagh, O ' Leary, Hallet, Tunstall, Ambrose, Keiler, Sund, Bonardi, Lanza, Rosch. Co-operation was the watchword of these players. For the third successive year the Gaveleers ' cup remained the treasure of the Grammar Masters when the smooth working Senior I outfit outclassed all its rivals and did not meet defeat. The games, however, were worthwhile contests and hard and fast play was in evidence. The Senior I team was made up of France, Perrault, Murray, Rolfe, W. Sullivan and Morgan and Russo, utility men. Following are the results of the games played. Team Senior I Freshman V Senior II Freshman VI Junior II Junior I Won Lost 9 6 3 5 3 5 3 (training) 8 Winning the Soccer title wasn ' t enough for the Senior II sportsmen, for when the Volleyball season rolled around this division headed for the title. Despite the keen com- petition the team came through and became the Volleyball " champs " of F. N. S. The utility and lineup men for this team were: Miller, Lakso, Moran, Cavanagh, O ' Leary, Hallet, Tunstall, Ambrose and Noble.

Women ' s Athletic Association All hail to 1928-29, the W. A. A. )?ear. It came through with flying colors, but then why shouldn ' t it for at its head was our most capable president, Helen Barnicle, and her aids, Edna Shea, Vice-President; Aini Heikkila, Secretary; Dorothy Blood, Treasurer; Alice Lenaghen, Junior Representative; Helen Chudzik, Senior Representa- tive; Gladys Shannon, Freshman Representative. The W. A. A. week-end on April 5 consisted of a bridge and whist party held in the library. Everyone co-operated and it was surprising to notice the pep and enthusiasm of the great number of girls attending the party. This year the conference was held at Framingham Normal, where all the representatives of all the Massachusetts Normal Schools gathered and exchanged ideas concerning women ' s sports. To this conference we sent our worthy president and vice-president. When they returned after having spent a most delightful time they were heavily laden and brimming over with new ideas, skills, and suggestions to add to our code of sportsmanship. Five of our athletes were fortunate in receiving their black jerseys with a large orange F in the center. A number of gjcis and letters were distributed also. 1929 has proven to be a social as well as a real athletic year for the W. A. A. Standing, left to right — C. Moran, Miss McDermott, M. Sheerin. Seated — M. Hoye, P. Blouin, C. Gould, M. Proctor, H. Scannel, C. Bettencourt, A. Laughlin. Heads of Sports SOCCER Although handicapped by the lack of sufficient time and appropriate weather to display its ability, the soccer team this year made a good showing under the able direc- tion of Charlotte Gould. A splendid number of soccer fans turned out faithfully twice a week for practice and the games played were enjoyed to their utmost. HIKING Hiking this year has been one of the most successful sports. Troops of energetic, ambitious hikers poured forth ready for many a long, dusty hike. These hikes were taken to Cogshall ' s Park, Deserted Village, Mt. Wachusett, Rollstone, and to the Whalom Community House. The Hiking Club is fortunate in having at its head a real leader, Agnes Laughlin. BOWLING Pauline Blouin lead her Bowling Team in great style and much credit must be given her for the success of the team. Practices were held once a week during the winter months at the Central Bowling Alleys. Several Junior-Senior class and division games were played as well as Freshman-Senior games. BASEBALL The team wishes to thank May Sherin for her fine support and her valuable time given to the team. Practice for both Freshman and Seniors was held every Wednesday afternoon on our diamond. Normal possesses some girls of unusual ability who aided their teams by furnishing strong competition to the opposing division. TENNIS The 1930 team, although of comparatively green material, showed signs of a v promising season. Although the team had not participated in many games up to date the players have shown their skill during practice which was held regularly twice a w under the leadership of Claire Moran. TRACK Normal was also well represented in Track. In the Spring our " Track Cham were singled out and a most interesting track meet was held with a large number girls participating in numerous events. This new and popular sport was well led Marguerite Hoye. Page one hundred ten First row, left to right — C. Gould, R. Moynihan. Second row — A. Cyran, G. Yoffa, G. Southworth, J. Ray, A. Gilson, A.

It started off with a bang and has been banging ever since. How could it be otherwise? Just look at our leader — a real athlete who knows hockey, as well as every other sport, from A to Z — Margaret Proctor. Margaret worked very hard and untiringly but the fruit of her labor was well worth the effort. Again our All Normal Team played the Arlington High School hockey team, but this time the game was played on our own gridiron and the whole school turned out and gave their support. Arlington still remains victorious but we certainly gave them a hard tussle, but little wonder, for following are the tusslers of the All Normal Team: Center Forward Pauline Blouin Center Halfback Margaret Proctor Left Halfback Helen Scannell Right Halfback Ruth McCarthy Left Inside Irene Fiske Right Inside Gretchen Yoffa Left Wing Agnes Waskiewiecz Right Wing Anna Petcen Left Fullback Helen Chudzik Right Fullback Josephine Ray Goal Keeper Grace Southworth Subs: Anna Cyran, Ruth Moynahan, Alice Gilson, Charlotte Gould, Katherine Kielty.

Basketball When the call came for basketball candidates our leader Cecilia Bettincourt was greeted with practically the same sextet as represented our school last year — with the exception of a few " Freshies " , but these same " Freshies " , although some of compara- tively green material showed signs of very promising ability and after a few practices their team work displayed everything but greenness. Division games were played after school and one of the big events of the season was the Harvard vs. Yale Game. Harvard fell before Yale in our own gym by a score of 26 to 15. From the two varsity teams the All-Normal Team emerged. THE BASKETBALL SQUAD Forwards Helen Scannell Beatrice Gilchrist Side Centers Alice Gilson Irja Sampo Guards Elsie Maffeo Emma Conti .lumping Center Margaret Proctor Take another glance at that team. For the first time our team traveled to B. F. Brown gym there to conflict in a raging battle with Kitchburg High. This ga was hard fought with Normal the victor.

MEN ' S GLEE CLUB Men ' s Glee Qlub President Louis Fontaine Vice-President Edward Fillback Secretary Thure Sund The Men ' s Glee Club has been very successful during the year 1928-1929. The object of the club is social singing for the men of the school. The first appearance of the Glee Club was at the regular assembly on Tuesday, October 16, 1928, at which they sang two selections. On Friday, November 9, they added color to the Armistice Day program by singing a group of army songs that were sung during the World War. At Christmas the club again came through and helped to spread Christmas cheer about the school by singing carols. Since the enrollment this year is much in excess of last year, bigger accomplisr ments are expected at the concert in the Spring. The Men ' s Glee Club extend to Miss Perry, director of the club, their sincere appreciation for her interest in and for her varied efforts toward making the club a success. Patji one hundred ijleeii GIRL ' S GLEE CLUB Girls ' Qlee Qlub No memory of our alma mater would be complete which lacked mention of the music we have found there. Not only the music prescribed for us in the curriculum, nor solely the singing we have sometimes enjoyed together, but rather the prevailing feeling that there tribute had always been paid to that harmonious muse, and there we would continue to pay it. That atmosphere of encouragement has resulted in several kinds of musical growth. Perhaps first among these should come the glee clubs, those voluntary organizations of all who could or liked to sing. The success of the Girls ' Glee Club may best be judged by the ambitious tone of their June concert, on the program of which we find such selections as: " Dearest Lord Jesus " by Bach, a number of Russian and Irish folk songs, including " On the Steppe " arranged by Gretchaninoff and " Follow Me Down To Carlow " arranged by Fletcher, besides the old favorites, " They Met on a Twig " by Robinson and " In Old Japan " by Kieseling. Individuals have also been encouraged to add much to school functions through- out the year by their musical contributions. There have been few parties, meetings or special assemblies without some evidence of various individuals ' response to the general attitude of approval and encouragement. Altogether our musical picture is a many sided one. It is one of our happiest memories and one mixed with gratitude for thos who have enabled us to better understand and enjoy music. The officers are: Preside Mollie Wild; Vice President, Ruth McCarthy; Secretary, Elsie Regan; Sub. Secret Mary Hickey; Librarians, Ruth Bowen and Ruth Capen.

On November 18, nineteen new members were brought into the club and this increased the membership to thirty. Joseph Lanza, as president, led the club through the most successful year since the club was formed. He was ably assisted by William Branley, vice-president, Robert Gosselin, secretary and Edward Fillback, treasurer. Many entertainments were given at the meetings throughout the year by members of the club and by invited guests. On February 17th the club presented the play, " In The Next Room " , to a large and appreciative audience. The play was one of the best ever given by members of the normal school and the clever dual interpretation of Jack Rolfe as Felix and his aliases will not soon be forgotten. The annual club entertainment and dance was held in the library on March 16th. The hall was exceedingly well decorated with the club colors. During the evening an entertainment was given by different members of the club. On June 1st the annual banquet will be held in the Hotel Raymond with manyv of the alumni present. During the evening officers will be installed for the next year The club is greatly indebted to Mr. Harrington, the club sponsor, for his help in making the year such a areat success.

Qaveleers Literary Society " GOODFELLOWSHIP " The close of this school year brings with it the termination of the eighth success- ful season of our society. The success of the organization in the past year is largely due to the fine co-operative spirit and the undying efforts of our sponsor, Mr. MacLean, and the officers : Louis Fontaine, President ; Carl Ambrose, Vice President ; Raymond Clark, Secretary; Joseph Valentine, Treasurer. Mr. Percival was taken into the club as an honorary member and we feel that his membership will boost our standing to even higher honors. The Gaveleer Trophy continued to do its good work of furthering the spirit of interclass basketball. The annual dance brought out a large gathering and the usual " good time " was had by all. At this dance a short entertainment was in order, Brother " Barney " Martin featuring in his efforts to outdo the famed Houdini. Through the efforts of Brother Francis Martin, we were fortunate in getting the Deerfield Academy Glee Club to appear here on April thirteenth. This feature proved to be one of the biggest hits of the school year. Our " Gav Bulletin " kept our alumni brothers in touch with the doings of the society. Some mention must be made of the many noteworthy weekly programs presente by the various members, the presentation of our sponsor and that of our new honoran member. These were outstanding, being closely followed by many others. Several pleasant evenings were spent with the Mohawk Club during which man hotly contested card games were enjoyed. Page one hundred nineteen THE DRAMATIC CLUB DRAMATIC CLUB OFFICERS Joseph Lanza President Agnes Laughlin Vice-President Henry Spring Treasurer Geraldine Wood Secretary Dramatic Qlub 1928-1929 The year of nineteen twenty-eight — twenty-nine has been a successful year for the Dramatic Club. The first meeting of the year was held shortly after the try-outs and the officers were elected. Mollie Wild was appointed chairman of the program committee. It was decided that the club should have its meetings the second and fourth Wed- nesday of every month. Instead of having one meeting business and one social, it was voted that at each meeting business and social work be combined. The Senior, Junior, and Freshman classes were responsible for the first three meetings. The purpose of these meetings was to acquaint the club with the talent of each class. The Christmas play, " The Dust of the Road " was presented at Assembly and it proved to be a gratifying success. The cast included : Prudence Steele Mollie Wild Peter Steele Cornelius Powers An Old Man Edwin Harris The Tramp John O ' Mai.lf.y Page one hundred twenty Dramatic Club — continued A special feature sponsored by the club was a play " A Trip to Scarborough " pre- lted by the Jitney Players of Madison, Connecticut, on January 29. A tea was given the players on the afternoon of the presentation of the play, at which the members the Dramatic Club learned much of the history of the players. On April 11, the members of the club went to Boston to dine and to attend the Hollis Theatre where they saw the most interesting comedy-drama, " All the King ' s Men " , in which Grant Mitchell starred. The next public performance was on May 10, when four one-act plays were pre- sented. These plays were directed and coached by members of the club under the direc- tion of Miss Williams. The plays are : JAZZ AND MINUET Eleanor Van Hayden Bessie Shay Richard Townsend Edwin Harris Nettie Marie Upton Mrs. Van Hayden Geraldine Wood Milord Devereaux Louis Fontaine Prudence Van Hayden Bessie Shay Robert Trowbridge Edwin Harris Lucy Trowbridge Marie Upton Coach: Josephine Tarbei.l ON A PARK BENCH He William Branley She Marguerite Scanlon Old Lady : Aini Heikkila Saleswoman Dorothy Delay __,_,.

Sullivan, President; Moran, Secretary Men ' s Student Qovernment The Men ' s Student Government aims to uphold the highest standards of honor in all matters of personal conduct, increase the sense of individual responsibility in school life, and to form an official body to express the opinions of the men of the student body. The governing body of this organization is made up of two men from each division who meet in council and discuss problems to be brought before their respective divisions. The council acts as a liason between the advisory committee, made up of three faculty members, and the men of the organization. During the past year pictures of the school clubs and athletic teams were presented to the organization by the Mohawk Club. These pictures are to be placed in the Men ' s Rest Room, which is also equipped with newspapers and magazines supplied by the organization. One of the most successful and largely attended dances of the year was held by the organization in Normal Hall. The Hall was attractively arranged and interesting entertainment was provided during the dance by members of the organization. Although the organization is yet young, a high degree of success in regulating matters pertaining to the men students is being achieved. The officers are: President, Francis B. Sullivan; Vice President, Norman Rosch ; Secretary, Paul B. Moran ; Treasurer, Francis J. Cavanagh. I ' agc one hundred tizenty-tizo - - - - " - - " " — ■ " — - First row, left to right — I. Shea, B.

The government started the year by giving a demitasse, the first Sunday of October, to the Freshmen. Our next event was the banquet given on Saturday, November 17, 1928, in the dining room, which was followed by a dance in the library. The guests of honor were Mr. and Mrs. Herlihy, Miss Bradt, Mr. and Mrs. Anthony, Mr. and Mrs. Percival, Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter, Miss McDermott, Miss Louise Lothrop, who represented last year ' s council and Miss Irene Reeves who represented the D. G. A. The Christmas banquet was sponsored by the Student Government and was attended by many of the faculty and students. This party with its many pleasant memories is not one to be forgotten very soon, and neither shall the dance held in Miller afterward. As an organization the Student Government has had a most successful year in building up a spirit of good will and union among the girls. Page one hundred tiventy-tliree First row — M. P. Hayes, E.

Day Qirls ' Association The officers are, Irene Reeves, president; Alice Keating, vice-president ; Mary Fraser, secretary ; Eileen Costello, treasurer; Margaret Proctor, treasurer pro tern. Much has been done this year, to organize the Day Girls into a group that is rep- resentative, and at the same time sociable, through the new rest-room for the girls and socials sponsored by the organization. For a successful year everyone ' s co-operation is needed, especially the new mem- bers. So it was decided to give an Initiation Luncheon to welcome the Freshmen. This was held in Miss Williams ' room, September 19. Each Senior girl was assigned a Freshman sister whom she was responsible for welcoming and acquainting with other girls. A Christmas Part} ' in the form of a picnic lunch was held for the Day Girls at Miller Hall. Each girls contributed a gift which was placed upon the tree and dis- tributed during the hour by a Santa Claus. The third annual joint banquet and dance of the Dormitory Student Government and Day Girls ' Association was held Saturday, November 16. The success that the organization has experienced this year is largely due to the interest and help of Miss Bradt. It is also due to the officers who have carried out duties well, and through the interest and co-operation of the girls. We hope th of the present year will continue in the future to make the club an important the school. Page iiur hundred tmaenty-fouT » r .

COOKING CLUB The Cooking Club has accomplished a great deal this year.

Page one hundred tiaenty-six y- yy ' v- " ' - " «v- Socials Our first social of the year took place in the Library. The Freshman Class was formally introduced. In the receiving line were Principal and Airs. Herlihy, Mr. and Mrs. Percival, Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter, Miss Hawley, Miss Cunningham, Miss Rweger, Miss Craig, Miss Folcarelli, Miss Grammont and the Senior Class president, Edward B. Fillback. The Junior Class sponsored a most enjoyable Halloween Party on October 27. The entertainment was amusing and original. One of the happiest events on our social calendar was the Student Government Banquet. The speakers of the evening were Principal Herlihy, Irene Reeves, Presi- dent of the Day Girls ' Association, and Marguerite Scanlon, President of the Dormi- tory Student Government. On November 27, the Senior Class sponsored a Masquerade Dance. The modern- istic decorations furnished a lively atmosphere for the occasion. A grand march was the feature of the evening. A typical old English banquet, carried out in a style that is traditional at Oxford College, was held December 15 in the dining hall. Carollers kept in our minds the serious side of the jubilee while the court jester added a touch of jest. The library was the scene of the annual dance given by the Gaveleers society on January 11. Hugh MacLean and Arthur Martin entertained. The former with a song and the latter with parlor magic. Mr. Martin ' s ring and handcuff tricks put the gathering in a humorous mood. Two weeks later, the Men ' s Student Government gave its first annual dance in the library which was enjoyed by many students and alumni. On January 29, the Jitney Players, under the auspices of the Dramatic Club, pre- sented to a capacity audience the play " A Trip to Scarborough " . The next month, the Freshman Class sponsored a Valentine Party and Dance in the library. To entertain, songs were sung by Helen Breglio and Roland Bourdon. Following this, John Power presented a series of tap dances. This was followed by an interesting playlet by Ann Lynch and William O ' Brien. The party closed at a late hour having been judged one of the best in years. The next event to take place was the Mohawk presentation of the mystery play " In The Next Room " , a play written by Eleanor Robson and Harriet Ford. The evening of February 16 proved to be entertaining as well as mysterious. On March 16 the Mohawk Dance was held. The moonlight and shield dances were very effective. The Mohawk Song was inspiring as well as entertaining. The room was effectively decorated in tent fashion with green and white in keeping with the occasion. The first debates of the Massachusetts State Normal School Debating League were held at the various Normal Schools. Westfield opposed our negative team here while our affirmative team traveled to Bridgewater. The W. A. A. Week-End was successfully carried on with a bridge party Friday evening and Alumni vs. Normal basketball game on Saturday afternoon. Many other socials such as the Gaveleers Entertainment, the Senior Promena the Glee Club Concert, the " Saxifrage " Dance, Class Day and Graduation are yet be enjoyed and are anticipated with extreme eagerness.
