FRANK S. LIVERMORH
His way is on the high wayg
He ever shunned the low.
His work has been as Christ's was
To help along the slow.
His patience has been boundlessg
His faith and courage strongg
May his memory live forever
As our paths we go along.

.f4pprecz'azz'0fz gf Mr. Lifuermore
T is a genuine pleasure to express a word of appreciation of the splendid services
rendered by Mr. Frank S. Livermore to the Department of Education, and
the educational institutions therein, through the State Teachers' College at
For several years the Department has had practically all of its printing done
through the printing department so ably presided over by Mr. Livermore. We
have always found Mr. Livermore prompt, willing, and courteous in meeting the
wishes of the Department with reference to printed material.
It is indeed fitting that the first Yearbook of the State Teachers' College at
Fitchburg should be dedicated to one who has, for many years, served the
institution with becoming modesty and unswetving loyalty.
FRANK W. WRIGHT,
For the Department of Education.
K R. LIVERMORE is a prince." Faculty associates, men and women
students, and state house ofiicials repeat this tribute so often to the beloved
head of the printing department in Fitchburg Teachers' College. He is so kind-
so even - so helpful - a gentleman always. We want to be just like you,
CHARLES M. I-IERLIHY,
For the Faculty.
HE real teacher is no mere surveyor of knowledge. He is one who delves and
leaves some impression on the mold of characterg or who gives rise to
inspiration. The alumni of our school have all been influenced by the character
of Mr. Livermore. Those of us who have known him as a teacher have been
taught and inspired by his kindness, gentleness, and sincerity.
EDGAR W. FLINTON, '28,
For the Alumni.
R. LIVERMORE is a sincere friend, a conscientious teacher, and a man
who has not only dared to set for himself the highest ideals but has had the
courage and strength to uphold them. He has b'een the inspiration to many to
give only the best they could to their profession and to be better even in the eyes
of other people.
WILLIAM H. TORNO,
For the Class of 1932.
IN this year of the bicentennial anniversary of the
birth of the "Father of His Country" what more
appropriate theme could have been chosen for our
1932 Saxifrage than one of Washington inspiration?
It is but a small tribute to the memory of the
man who elicited such praise as the following from one
of his officers: "Our army love their general very much,
but have one thing against him, which is the little
Care he takes of himself in any action. His personal
bravery, and the desire he has of animating his troops
by example, make him fearless of danger. This oc-
casions us much uneasiness. But Heaven, which has
hope will still continue to
nevertheless, we feel that
worthy of the character it
our bit toward honoring
hitherto been his shield, I
guard so valuable a life",
if our book is in any way
symbolizes, we have done
George Washington - the gentleman, soldier, states-
man, and friend.

Jlfefmge to the 1932 Clan'
I wish that it could be said of every graduate
of Fitchburg Teachers' College that he or she
knows how to work intelligently with children
in the classroom. I hope that your three years
here have taught you the importance of hard
thinking. Dare to continue to read, to think,
and to act as an educated young man or woman.
Come back and see us, often.

"Gabby" is our foremost talker, which is saying
considerable. He is a student of exceptional ability, and
as a good sport and willing helper he has no equal in the
entire class. It will be a long time before another man
of Keith's ability will be a student at S. T. C. Although
he has always been a prominent factor at social functions,
he has kept strictly to himself as far as the fair sex are
concerned. No doubt this is due to his numerous out-of-
school activities. The heated arguments which "Gabby"
and "Fat" indulge in are well known to every P. A. man.
lt so happens that Keith is Mr. 'l'aylor's assistance. We
wonder how S. T. C. will get along without his eliicient
services. The entire class predicts luck and success to
one of its most popular members.

"Never idle Il moment, but lhryty and
tholtghyttl of others."
After three years spent in Mary's company we have
come to recognize and appreciate her intellectual ability.
Being a quiet and reserved member of our commuting
group, she surprised us at first, with her sudden outbursts
revealing extensive knowledge in many fields, particularly
that of science and mathematics. Now, as experienced
Seniors, we look forward to sitting in on one of the "rest
room conferences" in which Mary's ideas are often ex-
pounded. It matters not whether the discussion relate to
the merits of a recent show or to the characteristics of
Irish literature - both subjects being dear to her and
consequently familiar to us.
ln addition to her scholastic ability, she possesses a
most desirable trait- that of generosity and helpfulness
toward her classmates. Many are grateful to her for
material representing hours of work.

And it really was she, -funny how they knew lt, isn't it?
We could listen to Anna talk for an unlimited time
for she has such a rare voice, one that is so soothing to
the ears. We always welcomed the times when she
recited for us, and are sorry to say that they were too few.
Anna is interested in the various clubs, but particu-
larly so in the Dramatic Club for whom she helped to
keep reports during '32.

Elizabeth was one of our busiest day girls who saw
to it that every commuter was made to feel at home. ln
her tactful way she managed to carry out her duties
admirably well as President of the Student Government.
As a keen booster of the Orange team, Elizabeth has
shown her faithful support by doing her share as a competer
on the various teams.
Courtesy seems to have attained its peak in Elizabeth.
This complaisance has made her classmates turn toward
her for friendly advice and counsel.

Ruth was always one of our most popular girls, but
she became more popular with the members of the
opposite sex this year when she won the "prize waltz" at
the first dance sponsored by the N. Y. U. Conference
Committee. She soon won the friendship of the Freshmen
at the "Dorm" because of her happy and carefree ways
which cheered them their first few weeks at S.T. C.
When you have the "blues" and just can't chase
them away, see Ruth- she'll doctor them for you.

We were agreeably surprised when we learned that
Gertrude was to be a member of our class. A keen sense
of humor, a joyous, carefree manner, coupled with an
almost irresistible ability to make and hold friends, tend
to make her one of the outstanding members of our class.
The soft, rich tones of her voice, and her pleasant
smile blend delightfully with her well poised, attractive
and graceful personality. Our only regret is that we met
Gertrude so late - in time to say "Welcome, and Goodbye,
our best wishes go with you."

If quietness is an index to success, "Wally" will
conquer worlds. Because of his quiet unassuming manner
"Wally" has made many friends among both student and
faculty. We know very little of his out-of-school activities,
but in school he has done considerable extra-curricula
work besides being an outstanding "Gav." It seems as
though one of the local girls has been getting a regular
"break" from "Wally." We can't blame you "Wallyg"
she certainly is nice. S. T. C. will miss you. Good luck

"Red" is another of those far famed P. A. men.
Besides being a good student, he has shown us that he
can do many other things well such as playing basketball,
acting, and singing. The "Gavs" have enjoyed a very
successful year under "Red's" regime, during wh1ch.he
has displayed marked executive ability. "Red".cla1ms
that his Model T has lost much of its former prestige due
to the condition of Highland Avenue. He even went so
far as to say "Highland Avenue must be repaired." The
fair sex do not seem to bother "Red" although as a social
lion he is at his best. The Class of 1932 will remember
him as a good sport and a fine fellow.

Every once in a while the world is blessed with a
person whose goodliness is really Godliness. This rare
gift animates the character of Sophie. From her lips has
never fallen a harsh word. Generously kind, she is willing
and ready to help one and all.
But goodness, alone, is not her only virtue. Her
very appearance seems to breathe the word "Responsi-
bility," and indeed no truer utterance could be made, for
regardless of what the undertaking may be, if Sophie has
a hand in it, success can be assured. Perhaps it is her
systematic way of doing things that accounts for this.
Surely there is no need to question why Sophie was

her efficient manner of inflicting discipline on the Fresh-

Diminutive and demure most aptly describes "Peg"
to those unfortunates who are not personally acquainted
with her. Frequently "Peg's" desire to seek knowledge
in a solitary fashion in some far away corner of the library
was shattered by the demands of the "gang" for a "peppy"
tune on the piano. And who could satisfy their wants
better than Peggie?
Although she often expressed the desire to travel, we
were somewhat surprised and sorry, when during our
Junior year, she set forth for sunny California. Ever
since her return she has been an ardent supporter of that
famous state. We curious ones often wonder what the
great attraction is out west.

S'rA'rE TEACHERS, COLLEGE A'r FITCHBURG
"Education is growth." So we are informed ky
educational texts, psyehologists, soeiologists, biologists,
all of our own illustrious faculty, and so forth and so
on ,........ ..... ,..,.. a d znfznztunz.
AND SO we, too, claim. The above statement smatters of vague generaliza-
tion-a mere theoretical hypothesis, gentle reader, which demands further
clarification. Therefore we cast about for a method of sustaining this claim. A
sudden streak of precocity blesses us and we come to the realization that many
are the exfperimentalists who have proved anything and everything through the
medium o certain so-called "type studies."
And so, kind peruser, we humbly beg of you to bear with us in the reading
of the following historical treatise, for we intend to establish our assertion that
"education is growth" through a type study of the life of the Class of 1932, State
Teachers' College at Fitchburg,
Let us glance back to September 11, T929 when the child Freshman first
took his unassuming place among the ranks of Normalites. We see a mere
youngster-eager, impetuous, and naively receptive of the holy utterances of an
elevated Senior class. We were soon initiated, of course, Cin ways that are
wond'rous to relatelj into the intricacies of campus life. After a few months had
passed bewilderingly, we began to emerge from a chaos of uncertainty and to
assinailate a certain feeling of class unity. We were learning the ropes, so to
After the confusion of two elections, we selected our first class officers-
President, Frank Sullivang Vice-President, Molly Broderickg' Secretary, Lillian
Tater, Treasurer, Bob Reilly. Mr. Healy was chosen faculty advisor, and an
excellent choice we have found him to be, indeed, throughout the past three years
Feeling very I-IALE and hearty, we STEELECI ourselves to the work at
hand and appROCHEd it with an earnestness such as would WITHER CAD LL
that dared inKERR our displeasure. DALY, NOON, and KNIGHTLY we
labored on MORANd more with the notes of song - SO-Pl-IIE, LOT-TIE, and
RE-MIE - constantly on our lips.
What patriotic heart among the girls of the class of '32 will ever forget the
eve of our debut as a mighty and powerful class? Oh, yes, it was a grand battle
royal while it lasted there in Miller Hall on the night of February I3, I93O-With
water throwing, hairpulling, and scratching displayed at their best, or, should we
say, at their worst? As Freshmen we certainly displayed a remarkable streak of
tenacity that night. Although the strong feeling current between upper and
fa. - . ,W-.,, 334 , ,ang 1

lower classmen soon faded into a stronger feeling of true friendship, we emerged
from the bout possessing a feeling of class spirit such as we never before had had.
What important dimensions we assumed that next night. CWe wonder that
our heads ever again resumed their normal proportionslj Decorations, rehearsals,
unique invitations, suppressed excitement, alumni back-and all on our account.
To say that the evening was a success puts it much too mildly in our estimation.
Little girls in red and white checked rompers, Cupid and his arrow, and a banner
with our Freshman colors-dark blue and light blue. We still chuckle when we
think of how we fooled those Seniors by a last minute change. A master stroke,
if ever there was one.
"We are all good workerxt,
Loyal and true blue,
Ami that is 'why we're .ringing
Frcrhmen, lzerefr to you!"
A multitude of school activities engulfed us. We found ourselves busily
engaged-Mohawks, Gavs, dramatics, debating, athletics, and that tremendous
project-the Tercentenary Pageant-all were claiming a lion's share of our time.
We even began to acquire the art of sandwiching our studying into brief but
As the poets would have it, "Spring descended upon old Normal." We
soon realized that we were passing through a season in which our school was at
its loveliest. Classes held under campus maples, a greenhouse and its environs
deluged with aromatic spring flowers, walks down Rindge Road, busy tennis
courts, restless feet, spring fever and couples everywhere.
And before we could realize it, we were plotting how to initiate next year's
recruits. Then amidst a final flurry of engagements, commencement activities
arrived. After some internal dissension, the girls of the class broke away from
the precedent of middies and skirts for Freshmen and appeared in trim white
dresses and blue ties on Class Day. A little over-awed by the beauty of the
simple ceremonies of the day, we participated in them a little like a child at his
first party--enjoying every moment of it but wondering if we were doing the
The Senior Class Play, the Step-Sing and Sing Out followed all too swiftly.
Hurried leavetakings-and suddenly there was a whole summer in which we
could prepare for the life of upper classmen.
Growth P M-m-m .................,.. perhaps.
When we returned in September, it was as a very elite junior organization.
Old familiar faces were gone and it was ever so difficult to reconcile ourselves to
the fact that new ones must take their places. Our two year Elementary Course
sisters had left us to go on to the Seniors of ,3I. By this transfer we became a
small group of Fifty-eight-all of us taking three year courses. With the wisdom
of the past year's experiences behind us, we felt very strong indeed, as we set
out to find new worlds to conquer. -

Early in the term we met in the Small Assembly for the purpose of electing
class executives. Frank Sullivan and Lillian Tater were again the popular choices
for their respective offices of President and Secretary of the class. Lois Hale
became the Vice-President and Donald MacKeraghan the Treasurer.
A glance at the bulletin board in the lobby revealed that the faculty had
decided that courses in methods were now a vital necessity in our educational
diet. Thereafter, we assure you, words such as "lesson plan," "motivation,"
"motor skill," and "pupil activities" rolled off our tongues with alarming
glibness. The same powers-that-be also decreed that it was high time for us to
assume a professional attitude as belitted our station. Forthwith, they proceeded
to duly impress this fact on our minds.
Soon school activities were in full swing. A popular innovation was added
in girls' athletics by the introduction of the Black and Orange Team competition.
It was a see-saw tilt all year with the admirers of mascots Ebenezer and Fuzzy-
Wuzzy Traddles battling keenly for honors. Not until very close to the end of
the season did the victory go to the Blacks, and certainly it was a well earned one.
Through our second big venture in the field of entertaining, we again proved
our ability as hosts at our I-Iallowe'en Party. And such entertainment! A com-
pany of ghosts under the lead of Lois Hale proved to us that mysterious Mose
was still very much able to send the chills racing up and down our backs. For
the first time that night we sang our new class song of '32 and displayed our
banner of purple and white.
Hark! W lzile the echoes carry back our Jong to you
Amusing cheer of victory-
Hurrah for Thirty-Two! 8
Christmas vacation came and went and amid a flurry of notebooks, exams,
and burning of the midnight oil, the term came to a breathless close. Soon a
startling change came over the faces of many of us. An experienced eye could
readily detect us and analyze our difficulties. Yes, of course, we were in training.
Could it be possible that the rounds of supervisors, plans, classes, and constant
work would change us so markedly from easy-going Collegians to harassed school-
teachers? But we managed to grin and bear it just as had many before us. Also
many of our experienced P. A. men had secured by this time outside Friday jobs
of which they were justly proud.
It was a year of many excursions. We went to the Tercentenary Ex osition
in Boston, the Massachusetts Hospital School in Canton with Miss Hawiiey, the
Higgins Armory with Miss Hawley also, the Boston Art Museum and Wayside
Inn with Miss Conlon. All of these proved to be novel and interesting experiences.
Then, too, there was the eagerly anticipated trip to Waverly with Mr. Percival
planned for our Senior year.
The English department this year featured a literary magazine. Elizabeth
Moran was chosen Junior editor and assisted greatly in making "Literary Lane"
the fine piece of work that it was. We also were leased particularly to note the
number of Junior names appearing in the table ofpcontents of the magazine.
june came just as Junes always do, and on the fourth day of the month the
first combined M. A. A. and W. A. A. Field Day was held down at the Athletic
1 l . ' .i ,,3.Q. ,,ll
l il , .fla w ' Ti r
Field. What an ins iration it was to sit around the huge roaring bonfire with
our classmates and ffiends, to sing the popular songs of the day, and to watch
the presentation of the annual athletic awards. We sincerely hope that the
success of this day will be sufficient cause for the initiation of a traditional held
day which will take place annually.
At this time, all school elections were held. Can we ever fully express the
regret we felt upon hearing that Frank Sullivan, who had so ably led us through
our Freshman. and Junior years, was voluntarily relinquishing his office? Bill
Torno was chosen as his successor and Lillian Tater was elected Secretary for
the third consecutive time. Lois Hale and Donald MacKeraghan also retained
their former posts. Elizabeth Moran was voted Editor-in-Chief of the 1932
Saxifrage and Frank Bishop Business Manager. Under such competent leader-
ship we felt well prepared to face the exigencies of our Senior year.
Commencement Week passed in a cloud of beauty. Glorious weather, glorious
exercises, glorious programs, glorious Junior Class! And Jimmy Smith and Bill
Wilson, our enterprising class photographers taking pictures of it all.
Then once more we bade each other a pleasant farewell. Perhaps we're
mistaken, but we were certain that we heard Mr. Faculty Member knowingly
remark to Miss Faculty Member, "That Junior Class of ours has grown decidedly,
September again! Sixty of us employed a little more dignity in our
bearing as .we sauntered across the lobby to ask our friends if they had had as
good summer as we. All attention was focussed upon us and we knew it. fOh,
yes! and .liked it tremendouslylj
There on Normal steps was Eddie Clifford every noon urging youngsters
with green and white skull caps on to new and unheard of antics. It seemed
unbelievable that only two short years ago we had been so juvenile. How quickly
we had evolved from the little mouse-"E-e-ek!"-to the big lion-"Roar-rl"
The faculty immediately proceeded to add the finishing touches to our most
worthy education. Gone from our programs were the methods courses of
previous days, only to be replaced by background courses more collegiate in
rank. Somehow we seemed above the trivialities of our Freshman and Junior
years. We no longer thought in terms of pussybumping and more than ever
earnestly endeavored to make the members of the faculty our friends. Class
discussions became broader in scope and more profound. Professional feeling
had become rooted deeply enough to alter our attitude and our conduct-at
In our lighter moments we got along famously. The Senior Masquerade
held under the "big tent" CPardon us, .we mean the librarylj was a perfectly
delightful affair. The faculty proved their worth a hundred times over as enter-
tainers. Their "little red school house" skit was the most hilarious thing we'd
seen in years-so comical that we could even afford to overlook their well aimed
thrusts at our ability as trainers. As we gathered that night under our royal
purple and white banner to sing our class song we began to think in terms of

"lasts." This was the last time that we would be hosts at a party to the school
at large. Could it be true?
As a portion of our class was busied in a world of training the First half of
the year, cooperation in the larger activities did not begin immediately. However
twenty weeks soon passed by and the new term found us together as a class for
the last time. Our very smallness in size made it a less diflicult matter than
usual to work together as a closely integrated unit. Each one of us did his or
her utmost to maintain the resolution made the previous June-namely, to make
the records of the class of 1932 the finest in the annals of S. T. C.
As the ranking class of the school, we were responsible in no little way for
the successful season enjoyed by all of the clubs. Most of the organizations of
the school were under the capable guidance of the Seniors. The combined Student
Governments sponsored two dances to raise money to send students to the New
England States Teachers' Conference held at New York Universit in April.
The entire student body voted for the delegates to represent the school at the
conference. Two Seniors were chosen-Sophie Falk and Michael Egan, both of
whom gave excellent reports on the work of the conference at a school assembly
held on April 13.
Many of the highly interesting five minute talks given in the morning chapel
exercises were delivered by Seniors.
The news came to us in March that the State Legislature had passed a bill
changing our name to The State Teachers' College at Fitchburg. And so it
happened that although we entered Fitchburg Normal School in 1929, it was
from State Teachers' College that we graduated in 1932, the Hrst class to leave
the school with the new name printed on our diplomas.
Then one day, out of the clear April sky, like a bombshell fell the news that
a few fortunates had already obtained positions. The air became charged with
excitement. The chief topic of conversation from then on was, "Has anyone else
got a position?" "Where is Mary going to teach?", "I hear that you have a
prospect," etc. It seemed almost incomprehensible that we who had seen two
such springs elapse, should now actually find ourselves the grou from whom all
the selecting was being done. More keenly than ever did we realize that we were
going forward to become the next group of Fitchburg trained teachers who would
find that "teaching is wonderful-not nearly so difiicult as training."
The universal depression made itself felt in the activities of the class of '32
when it was decided that the customary Senior Prom Weekend be shortened to
a one evening affair to be held on May 13th. Nevertheless, the class once again
displayed its remarkable ingenuity. The Seniors and their guests as they
reminisce on the pleasures of that evening know that it was the most brilliant
social affair held at S. T. C. in many a day. It really seemed as though the Prom
had been planned by able professional entertainers-from the beautiful ballroom
fa skillfully transformed libraryj and the lovely gowns of the girls to the mementoes
of the evening, cleverly designed Prom favors if ever there were any.
On June Ioth, the Saxifrage made its bow to the school at the Sax Dance.
The general excellence and fine workmanship of our yearbook made the class feel
that its wide sale and popularity were well merited rewards.

All too soon came the climax of our undergraduate life. As we sat on
campus steps, we could scarcely realize that the serenading was being done for
us, that while others would return, our packings for home and future activities
On June 18th we occupied the center of the stage in the most beautiful Class
Day exercises that had ever been held. It seemed but yesterday that we had
borne Freshmen arches on the center walk and then it suddenly was today and
we ourselves were marching under the canopy of purple and white and singing
our class song to the gathered assemblage. We hated sentimentality, but it took
a huge effort to push down the big lump in our throats on the following Monday
when people stood about us offering congratulations on our graduation. We
glanced at our diplomas. It was true. We really had completed our three year
course at Fitchburg State Teachers' College and were departing to scatter to
the four winds the talents of the grandest class that ever was-the class of
nineteen hundred and thirty-two.
N. B. Our type study is completed. Is education synonymous to growth?
Although we believe, if you have stayed with us thus far, patient follower, that
we have conclusively proved this to be a fact, we feel that perhaps Edith
Remshack's pictorial depiction of the same statement which is to be found on
Page 124 may better satisfy any doubt that may still remain in your mind. Why
not take a look at it?
Sembr Clam' Song
Trailing in the wake of all the classes gone before,
Upholding all traditions of this school which we adore,
Each loyal member in our midst with voice so strong and true,
Will sing in honor of his class - the class of Thirty-two.
Hail to the Senior Class, we'll always show the way,
In all of our endeavors be they work or play.
I-lark while the echoes carry back our song to you,
Our rousing cheer of victory - Hurrah for Thirty-two!
Time is drawing nearer when with friends we'll have to part,
And take our places in the world with brave and stalwart heart.
But until then each one of us will strive with all his might,
To guard the colors of his class - The Purple and the Whire,

the scene of our first official meeting. Over this meeting our able and trusted
off-icers, whom we elected last May, presided. Perhaps we shouldn't say elected
as it really was re-elected-James Hammond of Fall River is again president,
Katherine Flynn of Springfield, vice-president, Gertrude Tikkala of Fitchburg,
secretary, and Peter McLaughlin of Worcester, treasurer. At this first meeting,
we again elected Mr. john Randall as our faculty advisor. There were other and
important matters to settle. Chief among these was preparations for the annual
Hallowe'en party sponsored by the Junior class. After due consideration, we
elected the following committee chairmen:
Marietta Donnellan - Entertainment
Barbara Bachelder - Decoratiom
Gordon Phillips - Refreshmentr
Arthur Champney - Clean-up.
That we had chosen well, that we had people in our class willing to give
their best to class enterprises, was evident from the success of our party. Shall
you ever forget the weird and fantastic atmosphere that made even College Hall
seem eerie? We owe a great deal to Shirley Bunnell, William Riley, and Corrine
Senesac whose individual eH'orts made our minstrel show revue such a "hit."
Of course, we don't want to boast, but nevertheless you must admit that as
far as athletics and school societies are concerned the Junior class has far out-
distanced the others. It was a junior, one james Hammond, who lead our school
soccer team to unusual success this year. Who captured the interclass title in
basketball? Why, the Junior P. A. under William Riley's leadership! If you'll
but stop to think a moment, you'll realize that many of the most important offices
in the school are held by Juniors. just glance over this list: John Haggerty
secretary of the Mohawksg Daniel Seymour, secretary of the Men's Student
Government, Luke Early, president of the Geography Club, Ralph Mayo
president of the Debating Club, Ruth Sutcliffe, president of the Women's
Athletic Association, and Ruth McLean, treasurer of the W. A. A. We're proud
of our classmates.
When it was definitely known that the trip to the New York Conference
was to be possible, we selected as our Junior Representatives James Hammond
and Eleanor Wagner. We doubt if two better representatives could be found
Although training broke up our class, we carried loyally on through a most
successful year-:1 year crowded with happy memories, few regrets and brilliant

Freshman C an
A pleasant smile, a quiet yet pleasing
personality so appealed to the class of I9 5
that they honored Irving McNayr with the
office of president. Irving then showed his
true worth and capability with his fine execu-
tive ability and his sense ofjustice and fairness.
We feel that the class of 1935 will go far under
BETTY DRA KE
Charming, vivacious and versatile, Betty
certainly deserves the admiration of all who
know her. Always ready with a pleasant word
or a cheery smile, Betty brightens up even the
gloomiest of days. Her talents are numerous,
ranging from a marked ability at keeping the
records of the Freshman meetings to great
possibilities as a beauty culture expert.
One of the most popular girls in the Freshman
class was chosen as the vice-president. We
shall never forget the charming blond who made
such an excellent toast-mistress at the Valentine
Party! Alice is well liked by everyone in her
class-boys, day girls, and dorm girls-and by
the entire school. She excels in the classroom,
on the dance floor, and in the field of athletics.
His quiet manner helped him in concealing
his virtues for a while but the class soon found
him out and selected him to keep their finances
in order. Perhaps it is his smile or, perhaps, an
innate ability to make friendsg but whatever
it is, he is now one of the best liked fellows of
the freshman class. Judging from all appear-
ances, it is not only the masculine part of our
school that recognizes true worth.
Yo zffze Class WFIQ32
T was our privilege and pleasure as the entering class at Fitchburg State
Teachers' College to meet most of the present graduating class at the
Freshman Reception held in our honor. Since that time we have formed many
valued friendships, dearest among which are those formed with the Senior Class
So, members of the graduating class of 1932, we, of the Freshman Class,
wish you the very greatest success in the magnificent service to which you have
pledged your future years. May you prove as prominent in the teaching
profession as you have during your three years' stay at Fitchburg.
IRVING MCNAYR, President
For the Freshman Class.

UR first impression of Fitchburg State Teachers' College was of a very stately
building that housed many students greeting each other and talking, rather
incoherently, of a happy summer, and of how good it seemed to be back. We all
felt rather on the outside at first, but our "Big Sisters" soon took us in hand,
and, before we knew it, almost, we were a part of a thrilling school community.
We little realized, when we were first welcomed into the fold, what great
heights we would attain. We weathered the initiation ceremonies with Hying
colors, and proved to the upper-classmen that we were good sports with much
talent that we could display to suit their fancy.
Our oflicial welcome to the school came at the Freshman Reception. What
fun we had meeting the faculty and mingling with upper-classmen on the dance
Hoor! After this party, we felt more at home in our new environment and dared
others to look upon us as "green"!
Later in the year, we met to elect class oiiicers and plan for the annual dance
or Valentine Party sponsored by the Freshman Class. Our otiicers were: Irving
McNayr, president, Alice Cullinan, vice- resident, Betty Drake, secretary,
and Robert Chalmers, treasurer. Under the able leadership of these ofi'icers,
assisted by capable committees, we made our debut at one of the most colorful
Valentine Parties the school has ever known!
How proud we were of our attractive decorations, the ovation accorded our
talented entertainment, the music of Fred Wales and his orchestra, and, finallv,
of the astonishment registered on the faces of some of those who were positive
they knew our song and our colors!
By this time we had, of course, definitely established ourselves as an
important factor, but we chose to prove it in various other ways. Kay Mannix,
one of our members, capably assumed the duties as resident of W. A. A. when
the president was in training. The debating club fgund promising material in
Emil Johnson, Madelaine Hughes, and others. Where would the Gaveleer play,
"Applesauce," have been without the excellent performances of Rachel Dormin,
Dorothy Mitchell, and Bruce Palmer?
Mark my words - the class of 1935 is destined for a brilliant future during
l its stay at this great institution of learning!

This year proved to be a very important one for the M. S. A., due to the
consolidation of the Men's Athletic Association with the M. S. A.
The association has a council composed of the oH'icers and elected repre-
sentatives from each division and each class. This council meets during the
month to discuss problems and suggestions brought to the attention of the
representatives by members of the association. ,
The consolidated M. A. A. also has a board which functions in the same
manner. This arrangement has been found to work out very successfully so far.
The fine start made on improvements in the men's rest room last year, has
been continued this year. Among the most important of these improvements
was the installation of a radio, which has added appreciably to the comforts of
The association appointed a committee to work in conjunction with a
committee from the student associations to manage Wednesday night dances in
the gym. The success of these dances was due largely to the cooperation of the
girls and the playing of the Freshman orchestra.
Other business covered by this organization includes the initiation of Fresh-
men, the entertainment of visiting teams, and, at the time of publication, the
work of planning for a general get-together of all men students and men members
of the faculty to take place sometime during the year.

"The world is good, mul lhe people are grand,

The Dormitory Student Government Association ably presided over by its
president, Sophie lilalk, has enjoyed a very successful year. The round of
social aFl'airs was started with a get-together party of the "big and little sisters"
which proved very entertaining.
The Council then focused its attention on the Student Government Banquet
at which Lottie Hackett, House-president of Miller Hall, acted as toastmistress.
The general theme of the speeches was "Student Typesf' which was elaborated
on by Sophie Falk, "From a Dormitory Windowgn Ithzabeth Daly, "From a
Quburban Car"g Miss Bradt, "From a Dean's Deskf' and Mr. Herhhy, "From
the Inner OH'ice." The guests of honor were Mr. and Mrs. Herlihy, Miss Bradt,
Mr. and Mrs. Anthony, and Mr. and Mrs. Randall.
The Kiddie Party, at which most of the girls were in their element, was held
on December 17. The last prominent affair sponsored by the Council was the
Christmas banquet which was held 'December 21. This party took the form of
'ln old English Christmas dinner with king, queen, pages, singing cook, jester,
woodsmen, and carolers all taking part.
All these events have helped to encourage the fine spirit that has developed
1n the girls of Palmer and Miller. ,

Under the capable leadership of Elizabeth Daly, president, the Day Girls'
Government Association has met with much success this year. The freshman
luncheon, at which Miss Bradt addressed the girls with a delightful talk on
"Getting Acquaintedf' made us a more harmonious group. The next and most
colorful affair sponsored by this organization was the Women's Government
Banquet, held in Palmer Hall, at which the Day Girls joined with the Dormitory
Girls for an unusually interesting evening. The annual Christmas party, with
its gay decorations, presents, and the usual accompaniment of merriment, was
enjoyed by all. .
We were surprised to find that, due to number of Day Girls in the lfreshman
Class, the furniture of the lunch room was not sufficient to meet the demand.
What should we do? Why, rise to the occasion, and furnish new tables and
chairs. The Association is proud to have among its members those people who
gave so freely of their time, that the lunch room might be furnished adequately.
Thisl year will always be remembered as one rich in good times, both in work
and in p ay.

The soccer team which represented Fitchburg State Teachers' College this
past season truly earned its place as the strongest and most powerful aggregation
of its kind ever to represent our school. To say that one team is better than
any of its predecessors is to invite debate. However, it is the consensus of
opinion that this representative of Fitchburg State 'itacliei-S' College was one
of the greatest combinations in the history' of the school. This superior eleven
exhibited a fighting spirit that heretofore had never been seen. It was a team
that indeed brought credit to our Teachers' College. In all due respect to the
green and white teams of the past, we dare say that the cooperative spirit, the
loyalty, and the high degree of sportsmanship displayed by the 1931-'32 team
have never been possessed in the same degree by a normal school team of other
This season's schedule consisted of five games. At the end of the season
we discovered that we had been victorious three times, and on the Small end of
the score, twice. One newspaper adjudged our team one of the strongest in the
State. Massachusetts State College, undefeated and claimant ofthe New England
soccer championship of the smaller colleges, rated the green and white the
toughest of all its opponents. This statement should be sufficient to support
all that we have previously said about our team.
Much credit is due to Coach Jimmy Hammond, whose splendid leadership
and tact in handling his men, developed a keen eleven from a mediocre squad-
eighty per cent of which was "green." I-Ie served as an inspiration to the team
who responded to his ef-forts with enthusiasm and energy. i

The green and white quintet was composed of a group of active and aggressive
,M men-a unit that has brought us to the foreground, and which won the admira-
.tion of all by its dogged determination, fighting spirit and perseverance.
Much of the success of this season can be attributed to the capable and
efiicient leadership of john Haggerty, our sterling captain-coach. He brought us
through our first three victories, our Hrst reverse at the hands of Deerfield
Academy, and our second and last defeat of the season, suffered from the powerful
contingent from St. john's Prep. Later, he helped us recapture our winning
stride and conclude our season in a most appropriate manner: the decisive
victory over Bridgewater. Well done, john!

ls there any organization at S. T. C. which provides for as much pleasure
for as large a group as our VV. A. A.? What a variety of sports we plan for!
Hockey, soccer, hiking, basketball, bowling, volleyball, archery, horseshoes,
tennis, and swimming, are the sports of our full program.
Much time and careful thought was given to all activities throughout this
year by the officers of the association. Ruth Sutcliffe, President, Katherine
Mannix, Vice-Presidentg Toini Rahkola, Secretary, and Lois Chism, Secretary.
The meetings of the organization were held every second Monday of each
month. At many of these meetings we divided into our Orange and Black teams
and practiced songs and cheers. Marjorie Cavanagh, Captain of the Orange
Team, and Stephanie Kozyra, Captain of the Black Team, certainly did their

our points on the chart for us. Mary Fitzgerald, Senior, Marcelle Schenker,

The W. A. A. Weekend was one of the most enjoyable times of the year.
A country fair was held on Friday evening. Attractively decorated booths,
displaying good. things to eat, did a thriving business. The feature ofthe evening
was an entertaining style show of what the well-dressed Normalite should wear
throughout Prom weekend.
The Association owes much of its success to its efiicient faculty advisor,

The basketball season of 1932 was one of the most successful sports of W.
A. A. under Ruth MacLean, Head of Basketball. Fine spirit and good sportsman-
ship were shown in all of the many games which were played. The final game
of the season between the Orange and the Black was won by the Black team.
Cooperation of the following people spelled success for the Black teamg
S. Kozyra, A. North, V. Robbins, L. Moran, R. MacLean, and C. Lane.
E. Daly, H. Percy, E. Galica, A. Conlon, K. Mannix, M. Lomax, A. Aalto,
M. Schenker, and L. Hale, fought hard for the Orange team.
The outstanding feature of the year was the new idea introduced into
technique classes. Each girl had a chance to officiate in the practice games
which were played. This system assures W. A. A. of a large group of experienced
girls to ofiiciate in the basketball games next year.
Bla ck- Orange Contests
Basketball season was over and the Black team was far ahead. However,
the Orange team was not daunted, but made a gallant attempt to capture more
and more points. Shall we ever forget the thrilling bowling season? Under the
capable leadership of Peg Griffin, the weekly bowling contests became something
that everyone looked forward to. When the first Black-Orange contest ended in
a tie, excitement ran high. Then, when the Black won the deciding match,
some were very disappointed, others were overjoyed! The season came to a
fitting close when the all-school team decisively defeated the Faculty team.
Ruth Worcester, head of tennis, prophesied a brilliant season, as about
fifty-eight promissing candidates have reported for practice sessions. We have
received the same interesting comments from the heads of the other spring sports
and we feel that our interest and enthusiasm will not abate until the final curtain
is drawn on Black-Orange competition for 1932 by the awarding of the shield
to one team or the other!

October 26, 1931, marked the "Upen Meeting" of the club in the large , , i
as the warriors sit around the cam vhre and 'Hass the ni we of weace around " , !
assembly hall. The entertainment for the evening, which consisted of a musical li
schoolroom skit, provoked quite a bit of laughter from the audience. Refresh- lf, 1
ments were served later, and the invited guests left the meeting feeling that they ' , l
had spent a most delightful evening. f
Our club has long had a reputation for doing things well, and we tried to live J
up to this reputation by providing many different activities for our club meetings.
Mr. Perry Wilson of the lfitchburg City Council, and Mr. Ernest l,. Slattery of
the Fitchburg Boy Scout Council, were among the most interesting speakers.
Shall you ever forget the transformation of the library effected by the club
on March 18? The picturesque lndian setting added to the impressiveness of the
singing of "O Mohawks True."
Another triumph for our club was the illustrated lecture on "Africa" given
on April 2nd, by lVlr. Douglas Oliver, boy scout on the Martin johnson expedition
to Africa. The appearance of the Harvard Male Quartet on the same program,
added to the en,i0yableness of the occasion.
Ten new braves were admitted into the tribe this year and more rigorous
and hardy warriors would be hard to find. The more that these new members ,
would surely prove their worth was not forgotten at the annual banquet and
alumni reunion, when the newly elected ohicers of the club were installed. 1

Under the continued capable sponsorship of Miss Hawley, the IQSIWQZ
season proved to be a most successful one for the Debating Club. We continued,
outside of regular club activities, a feature which was initiated last year-Tuesday
morning assembly programs in the form of open forum debates. These discussions
as well as being very popular, served as a splendid advertising medium and
attracted many new members to the club.
The first of these debates, on November 23, was of Senior-l"reshman interest.
Helen Steele, a Senior, debated Emile johnson on the subject, "Should Un-
employment Insurance be Compulso1'y?,' ,lt was a Senior triumph, the decision
being given to Miss Steele, 2lH'lI'ITl2'ltlVC.
A second open forum assembly was held on january 19, on the question,
"Should the United States join the League of Nations?" Ray Warner, a Senior,
upheld the aH'irmative and john Glennon, a junior, the negative. The judges'
decision added another victory to the Seniors' laurels.
The outstanding event of the year was the outside debate with Keene Normal
School held at Keene. Our team, which made an admirable showing consisted of:
Helen Steele, Ray Warner, Emile johnson, and Madeline Hughes, alternate.
Unfortunately, conditions proved to be such that it was deemed expedient
to dissolve the Massachusetts Inter-Normal Debating League for the immediate
future, at least. We, from Fitchburg, were the founders of the League and have
provided all of the presidents up to and including the present incumbent, Evelyn
Orlen. Therefore, we sincerely hope that the powers-that-be consider it advan-
tageous to debating interests to re-create the lnter-Normal League in the near
Presideul, Donald Mclierughang Vice-President, Mary Robinson, Sccrelury, Anna Coyle: Treasurer, John Howard.

The curtain has fallen on another year's production given by the Dramatic
Club under the able management of its president, Donald McKeraghan, and
directorship of Miss Williams. The program for the year, as prepared by Mary
Robinson, Vice President, consisted in a series of varied scenes: one-act plays,
speakers, and special programs. The theme for the entire production was drama
of other nations.
Our speakers cooperated in giving to the club, pictures of the theatre in
other countries. Mr. Harrington gave an interesting review of Greek Drama.
lVIr. Darney, a welcomed speaker of former years, who has been traveling in Japan
and China, gave us an illustrated talk on Oriental Drama. The club appreciated
very much the valuable material given to them by Mr. Neil Kimball in an
informative discussion of play production. VVe were also honored this year in
having with us, as guest speaker, Mr. Joyce of Harvard, who presented a vital
discussion on the "Little '1'heatre" of American Drama.
One of the most unique meetings was held on January 6, when Production
Effects were demonstrated by three student members. Arthur Harper spoke on
"lighting," Ruth Canty on "stage effects," and-Carl Witherell on "make-up."

" Yea, music is the PfI?JftCl'8 art:

The young men's and the girls' glee clubs, Lll'ltlEI' the able direction of Miss
Perry, have done much to make our school year more interesting. They have
assisted in many programs and assemblies that, without them, would not have
been so successful. Especially is this true of the school's oH'icial celebration of
the bicentennial of George Washington, when Mr. Bower spoke to us the night
of February 9.5. At this time, the Glee Clubs gave a very interesting program
of music, which was related to the speakers subject. This program was as follows:
Men's Glee Club - The Glorious Name of Washington.
Mr. Capone - Welcome, Mighty Chief
Combined Glee Clubs - Mt. Vernon Bells
They also displayed their talents at the annual Todd lecture at which they
again sang songs dedicated to the "Father of His Country."
We shall never forget the splendid showing they made, not only for them-
selves, but for the school as well, during the music contest which was held the
week of April 18.
Some of the happiest memories that the Seniors carried away centered
around the glee club activities during step-singing, and graduation activities.
The Glee Clubs are looking forward to an even more active and interesting
organization next year.

The Geography Club is one of the most educational and interesting of the
school clubs. The interest this year is brought about by an unusual method of
procedure popularly called "armchair traveling." This "armchair traveling" is
carried on at bi-monthly meetings where the aims are to promote educational
activities in the Held of geography and travel, to familiarize our members with
glimpses of places which cannot be visited by us, and to make people and
countries of the world seem more realistic.
Under the su ervision of Miss Webster, our last aim is much easier to
accomplish. She liias aided our discussions by the vast wealth of experiences
and information she has gathered on her many travels. During this past year
she has completed a journey around the world, and by her interesting talks about
the trips, she has made us feel we accompanied her. During Miss Webster's
absence, we were most fortunate in having Mr. Smith as our advisor. He also
gave much to our discussions. -
This year in our "armchair traveling" we are taking a trip around the world,
stopping at interesting points. This is done in talks prepared and delivered by
individual members who display unusual ability in securing all the available and
interesting information possible on their subject.
The Club's year is to be brought to a fitting close by having a trip to some
interesting spot in this vicinity, to show that our own surroundings may be just
as colorful as those of other lands.

The Saxifrage Board feels almost at a loss when it comes to expressing its
sincere appreciation of all those who in any way aided in making this 1932
Saxifrage a success. We shall never forget the splendid cooperation of the faculty
and student body which insured the success of the Saxifrage Assembly and the
Saxifrage Danceg neither shall we forget the efforts of the undergraduates and
club officers who so willingly helped the editors of the various departments. The
interest shown by our advertisers, whose loyal support made possible this book,
was very gratifying. To Miss Conlon, whose whole-hearted service to the Class
of 1932 in editing this book has endeared her to us, we are especially grateful.

UTSIDIS it was cold and dreary, the world was envelopzd in dismal, foggy
weather. Within, however, was warmth and comfort. llrowsily, I stretched
my hands towards the cheery fire crackling merrily on the hearth. A warm sense
of content surged through me-and as I watched the flames, vague, shadowy
outlines seemed to form and dance before my eyes.
Again and again, a moving picture screen flashed before my eyes. I saw
Germany, Ireland, Southern France, and Manchuria dance before me. Then, in
rapid succession there appeared pictures of birds, of summer camps for girls,
and for boys. The figures of Miss Bolger, Mr. Knowles, Rev. Mark, Mr. Talbot,
Mr. Crosier and Miss Gourville seemed to recur over and over during these scenes.
Slowly these passed from view and another setting grew in the bright fire.
Now I could picture a large group of people listening breathlessly to an all-
absorbing discussion, "Should the United States join the League of Nations?"
Then almost instantaneously, the same group was enthralled by a very excellent
speaker and a meeting of the League of Nations Assembly. Soon the Assembly
floated away and left one figure in its stead. Could it be true? Birds, ornaments,
trinkets of all sorts appeared in a twinkling from bits of glass. Of course, it was
Mr. Kingman, that clever glass blower.
Again the same picture presented itself, but this time the man with his wares
was entirely different. Mr. Weston seemed to take on the guise of an oriental
dealer in Persian rugs! A fleeting thought passed through my mind, "I don't
usually associate mathematics professors with Persian rugs." The rich back-
ground of priceless rugs melted into a very unique and well equipped stage on
which marionettes of all sorts and sizes were dancing. Miss Conlon and the
Senior and Junior girls seemed to be the guiding factors in this display.
Once more a group of girls seemed prominent - a laughing, chatting group
happily ensconed in a cheery "dorm" room. What is that which is causing so
much comment and admiration? Look closely, it is the Saxifrage!
This scene, also, soon passed, but it was followed by an interested, excited
group discussing the problems and interesting news of the day. Phrases as-
"i932,-The Washington Bicentennial Year," "The Present-Day Economic
Crisisgn "The Far-Eastern Question," "The Great Advancement of Modern
Science," seemed to leap out at me from the flames. Then, as if in one accord,
the group gave way to one or two outstanding figures who appeared to be
addressing the group on the above questions.
Most noticeable of all these figures was the elderly, brilliant and well informed
Dr. Albert Bushnell Hart who was apparently giving a very interesting and
inspiring talk on "Washington as a School Teacher." Then there appeared Dr.
DeHass, from the Harvard School of Business Administration, who, I judged,
was discussing the depression. Next in order came Miss Webster, our geography
teacher, and Dr. Marshall from Harvard who gave their impressions of japan
and China. Then I could discern statues taking on a pale, green light and elec-
tricity being applied to all sorts of appliances. Looking more closely, I saw a
personal friend of the late Thomas A. Edison, demonstrating the heights to which
modern science and invention have risen.
These pictures faded away and there remained only a comforting blaze in
the fireplace. Suddenly, I was startled by a voice which seemed to come from
another world, "For goodness' sake, child, if you are that sleepy will you please
go to bed ?" and I awoke to the realization of the fact that I had been re-living
the various instructive and entertaining school assemblies of the past year.

Flzzflzef from Our Soczkzl Calendar
OW to begin, dear reader? There have been so many unusually interesting
social events at S. T. C. during our last and most successful year. First of
all there was the annual Freshmen reception sponsored by the faculty and upper-
classmen in honor of the new arrivals. It was a splendid beginning-a most
cordial welcome to those who have so recently aspired to success within the
portals of S. T. C. That well-done affair on September 29 was only the introduction
to a long story. Things have happened continuously, and interest has run high
to the very end. There is so much that could be said about each happy gather-
ing that we could hold your attention for pages. However, our space is limited,
and then again, possibly you would rather have all the events listed with just a
little explanation under each so that they will be before you ata glance. Shall
we begin with the first social happening after the Freshmen reception?
OCTOBER ISTH. The soccer team came through with a 5 to I victory over
Bridgewater. We celebrated to the extent of holding an informal bridge and
dance in Miller Hall from three-thirty until six. It was such fun-the kind of
party that makes one cry, "More"
OCTOBER 3o'rH. The Hallowe'en Party, overfiowing with alumni, placed the
Juniors high up on the social ladder. Shirley Bunnell's tap dancing, the laugh
provoking efforts of Corrinne Senesac and Ed Ponte made an evening one might
term a "howling success."
NOVEMBER 11'rH. Womenls Student Government Banquet in Palmer Hall.
Something to remember in more ways than one.
NOVEMBEIX 9.4'I'H. Our Senior masquerade had everyone stumped, because
it was unexpectedly novel. Believe it or not, wehad a circus. Balloons, noise-
makers and everything that goes to make a large evening in a "circusy" way.
DEQE'MBER QND. You've heard so much about the golden opportunity which
knocked at our Student Government Associations' doors. That's it-the New
York Conference. Such opportunities must l'CSt on someone's shoulders. This
one chose well her victimsfan able committee which put their heads together
and produced two all-school, afternoon parties-the first on December 2nd, and
the last on january 27th. For the first time during our experiences at College
the entire student body actively engaged in passing a delightful afternoon in
dancing, ping-pong, bridge et cetera. All for twenty-five cents owing to the
beneficient natures of our promising Freshmen musicians!
DECEMBER HTH. The Dramatic Club presented a most difficult piece of
work, "He Who Gets Slappedf' Criticism? Absolutely none, the Cast were
excellent, and the management the very best. But then, we expected only the
best from the Dramatic Club, because we have had previous experiences with
JANUARY I5TH. The W. A. A. had a gala night in the gym. A country
fair provided' inspiration for numerous colorful booths, old-fashioned dancing, a
most unique showing of a prom weekend wardrobe, antiquated not only from the
standpoint of depression but from the fact that the 18th century was depicted.
FEBRUARY 5Ti-I. A Freshman victor supreme-the Valentine Party. Few
alumni were present possibly because ofy most non-cooperative weather condi-
tions. We found that numbers don't make an evening, that quality not quantity
reaps the harvest. The Freshman colors were received with much enthusiasm.
Their gold and purple harmony will stand out during our class day activities.
f.. ,ra 6...

I "A: Vqliu A 1
We were pleasantly sur rised to greet new talent in the form of individual
musical and dancing ability.
FEBRUARY 6'rH. When they heard that the Gavs were presenting "Ap le-
sauce" and that three freshmen were taking leading parts, the sages shook their
heads. just to prove that "where there's a will there's a way" "Applesauce"
went over, and we mean went over in a big way. The light comedy atmosphere
was carried out to the finish-a task well done!
MARCH I8'1'H. The Mohawk dance ended all too soon-music and the right
kind of a crowd. We wonder if perhaps it wasn't the spiritual Indian atmosphere
that made us feel friendly toward all.
APRIL Is'r. A splendid evening gave front page headlines to our Gaveleers.
When they do things they certainly do them well. We're writing about the Gav
dance, you know.
MAY 13'rH. Can Prom be described by mere words? The culmination of
our social life during our three years at S. T. C. was worth writing home about
and not for money either! just picture a southern colonial garden party, soft
lights, a friendly atmosphere warmed by the rhythm of a heavenly orchestra.
You have our prom. Not an atom of the untiring effort to make prom the out-
standing event of the year was wasted. Everyone was happy in the knowledge
that the Seniors were leaving behind them "something to remember them by."
Gur time is up, and the supply of words has become exhausted. May the
years to come at S. T. C. be as socially successful as those of the class of '32.

A1.Mrc:H'rY GOD, how shall I pray?
Wonder and fear have sealed my lips-
Parched and swollen-they cannot speak, today.
Ill sense of life my hands and mind-have soiled,
By violence bruised too-of truth they dare not write,
But 'tis desire sincere, and honest trust, I might
just know thy will, O God, for meg
While now in penitence I bow my soul to thee.
Thou sayest, "Be still and know that I am God,"
Thus it is through grace I know that thou art good.
Listening by faith, O God, I hear thy word of light,
"I-Ie who willeth to do my will shall know the right,
The works of God are to believe on him whom he hath sent"-
Then in thy name, O Lord, for others may my life be spent.
My thought, my will, my cross to thy loved Son I give
the crowning place,
'Tis now I live and serve for Jesus' sake, thou God
of truth and grace.

3 eff Tecree of Fate
Jimmy Holmes' clear, resonant voice broke the stillness of the autumn air,
as he warned a group of golfers who were chatting on the green zoo yards ahead
of him. Then he drew back his club and hit the ball squarely. In a long,
graceful curve it sailed toward the Hag in the distance, but before it reached its
goal something got in front of it. That "something" was dressed in a fiashy
golf suit and was accompanied by a young woman.
Now Fate had decreed that J. Russell Payne should be the richest man in
Evanston, and that his daughter, Diana CJ. Russell had gone big for mythology
in his younger daysl should be the best looking girl. Quite a lot for Fate to
decree on one family, what?
Anyway, the ball landed squarely on J. Russell Payne's head. With a loud,
belching voice, he swore tliterallyj that he had been stung by a bee. In fact, his
voice was so loud and so convincing that jimmy heard it 200 yards away and
was almost sure it was a bee that had committed the dastardly crime.
"What a bee that must have been," murmured J. Russell, rubbing a bump
as large as a hen's egg on his head. Then, glancing down, he saw a golf ball.
Realizing that self-respecting bees do not carry golf balls around with them,
Mr. Payne began to think. By the time Jimmy had come up to him, I. Russell
had arrived at the conclusion that he had been stung by something besides a
bee, that said something was a golf ball, and that said golf ball had been driven
by Jimmy Holmes.

Now everyone admitted that jimmy was a most excellent golfer. tHe even
admitted it himself with enough persuasionj Like some other golfers, however,
jimmy had one bad habit. That was his ability for shall I say lack of ability?D
of hitting other people on the head with hard driven golf balls. It had happened
so often at the Evanston Country Club that people had come to look on it as a
habit. Those that had been hit, however, insisted that it was pre-meditated
crime. jimmy paid no attention to what people thought of his driving, but he
did pay a lot of attention to Diana Payne. In fact, he had been so attentive
that her father had more than once threatened to "Shoot the young puppy."
At last the break had come. J. Russell Payne had been hit on the head
with a golf ball driven by jimmy Holmes. The Caddies of the respective parties
concerned expected, at the very least, a bloody, little murder, with Jimmy on
the receiving end, yet nothing of the sort occurred. J., Russell glared at jimmy.
jimmy glared back, with a different sort of glare, however. Payne spoke.
"Any man that would deliberately hit a gentleman on the head with a golf
ball should be .... " He stopped. There was no word had enough. Then Mr.
Payne, for he was a gentleman, Csometimesj gathered his clubs, beckoned to his
daughter and his caddy, and strode off. Diana didn't even give Jimmy a glance,
despite the fact that he had once twenty summers ago even eaten her mud pies
for her. fFickle lass.D
"Well," thought jimmy, "that was a nice way to convince her that she
should marry me, crack her old man in the head with a golf ball, and all because
I can't handle a golf club decently. I swear I'll never play golf againf'
Two days later we find jimmy Holmes driving off from the first hole of the
Evanston Country Club. It so happens that this club has ninve holes and the
ninth, which is near a group of pines, comes nearly up to the back of the club
hous.e. The second hole is just over to the side of the club house, not far from
theninth. As Jimm'y drove, he saw a group of golfers over by the ninth hole,
but did not pay much attention to them. At this point he committed the un-
pardonable error of all golfers. HE SLICED. The ball headed straight for the
group on the ninth hole. flt would.j Jimmy was astonished, but his astonish-
ment turned to self-concern when he saw that one member of the group was his
old friend, J. Russell Payne. At first he was tempted to run and hide. Our hero,
ffor jimmy is our hero, you know, even if he does slicej however, was no coward.
He ran toward the group to see what damage he had done. This drive must
have been terrific, for one ofj. Russell's friends was stretched prone on the green.
As jimmy came up, Mr. Payne started toward him. jimmy stopped. fWho
"James," began J. Russell Payne, "you have done me a favor I can never
repay." fCan this be a trickg the old villain?D Jimmy looked at Diana, then
at the man on the ground. Goodness! for words to that effectj there was a
wicked looking revolver in his right hand!
Mr. Payne continued. "That man was in the act of holding me up. He
came out of the pines just as Diana and I arrived at the ninth hole. As I am
carrying securities amounting to over 320,000 it would have been a great loss to
me, but thanks to your magnificent drive, I have been spared. How can I ever
thank you P"
Jimmy looked at Diana, who was smiling only as Diana Payne knew how
to smile. J. Russell assumed the stern parent role again. "Any man that will
deliberately hit a gentleman on the head with a golf ball should be .... rewarded."
He nodded toward Diana, winked at jimmy, and walked away.

l've visioned myself a buccaneer bold,
Sailing on a galleon so very old.
My pur ose? The pirate treasure of yore,
Of which we read in ancient lore.
Then again a gallant knight I've been,
Thundering away to challenge the Saracen,
Or to curry the favor of a beautoius maiden,
A fair, but haughty and scornful maiden.
Sometimes I think of Washington's day,
Dangers about, and work only child's play,
Of being a pioneer and building a home
Somewhere in the wilderness, never to roam.
But life is queer, and times have changed,
Centuries have passed, and wars have raged.
Men have lived and died for glory,
Their adventures we live in song and story.
Life is a problem, hard to solve,
In it we poor mortals must revolve.
But I'd like to dwell in revery ,E
And dream, just dream, of yesterday.
-- IFRANK BISHOP.
She'd stood so long against the wind-swept sky,
As lovely as a rainbow through a mist-
A sight to make impassioned poets sigh
Of symphonies in gold and amethyst-
That now, when I must close her vacant eyes,
And place each slender hand upon her breast,
My quaking and bewildered spirit cries
Of shattered beauty, and a soul o pressed.
But Life leans down with pity in llier gaze,
And spreads her threadbare cloak to shut away
Intangible remembrances, then lays
Her hand upon my head as if to say:
"Dreams are such futile things, I wonder why
You fiercely shelter them - to watch them die.

Tfze girls' Rest-room
Silence! Solemnity! It is impossible to combine those words and my
impressions of the Girls' Rest-room into one thought. Here is the place to talk,
to copy homework, to criticize "pro" and "con" the assembly speaker, and to
discuss the latest rumors.
It is a most unusual event to see the lounge and the two wicker couches
unoccupied, and, alas, what advantage is there if you do find one empty? You
will soon be expected to share it with at least three or four other completely
fatigued girls who halve just come from physical torture or some depressing class
The two desks are in great demand just previous to the time of tests or when
notebooks are due. At all other times they are mostly ornamental, serving only
as convenient places on which to put one's books while the owner rearranges her
already arranged hair.
In a way, the Hoor is the most important part of the room, for upon it girls
gracefully and intricately dance, or clumsily wrestle. But the floor is promptly
abandoned when the little gray mouse puts in an appearance. This mouse, to
say the least, is courageous and seems to delight in disappearing under the
lounge, leaving everyone in prolonged suspense standing upon desks, chairs, or
couches and screaming hysterically.
In reality, the rest-room is an unsurpassed place to make acquaintances
and to idle away time. It is a pleasant and attractive room. I look forward to
the time, however, when there will be a piano or possibly a radio in it, for then
I will no longer envy the boys whenever I pass their room and hear the alluring
strains of music, which pierce the walls.

I remember a downcast teacher,
Standing on the campus so bare
ln front of our Alma Mater
The Teachers' College, empty, yet fair.
The sun was shining serenely
From its lofty abode in the sky,
But the teacher was not happy,
And tear drops were in her eye.
Sorrowfully worked the janitor,
Shufliing sadly on his way
Along the dreary and silent corridors,
On this bright and beautiful day.
About his work he went mournfully,
And from him escaped tragic sighs,
Seemed that dear "Tom" was unhappy,
B'lieve it or not, tears streamed from his eyes.
Silently the "chief clerk" pondered,
As she tried to concentrate o'er the sheet,
Hoping 'gainst hope 'That It' had been dreamed,
And that history would never repeat.
Today she seemed more than gloomy,
As workers passed her by,
For she was most unhappy,
'Tis true, tears were in her eye.
At last the sad trio - together met,
ln front of the lobby door,
Out came their handkerchiefs, while they wept,
Their dejection and sorrow was sore.
Lourlly wailed they, "What shall we do?"
We may just as well die,
The Senior Class ofThirty-Two,
In the lobby no longer we'll spy.

They were seated in the gymnasium at one of the Wednesday night dances, when suddenly
there was a loud crash.
"Come," he said, taking her hand, "let's dance."
f V I:Don't be foolish," she answered, "that wasn't the orchestra-Mae McGuire dropped a tray
o tis es.
"Nature" said Mr. Percival, "always makes compensation. If one eye loses sight, the other
becomes stronger, if one ear loses hearing, the other becomes more acute."
Early: "I believe you're right. I've always noticed that when a man has one leg cut off at
the knee, the other leg is always much longer."
Mr. Randall: "Is that all the work you can do in an hour?"
H. Steele: "Well, I daresay I could do more-but I never was one for showing oFF."

Frank: "The Nile."
Miss Webster: "That's right. Now can you tell me the name ofsome ofthe smaller tributaries?"
Frank: "Oh, yes, they are called juveniles."
Heard in Mr. Smith's science class, when Mr. Smith was explaining the intricacies of the solar
Alice Cullin: "I can understand how a new star might be discovered but how on earth do you
clever people ever find out its name?"
Ppeckert: "This new dance becomes rather monotonous, don't you think?"
Eileen Fitz: "Why don't you try jumping on my other foot?"
Mr. Harrington: "When Columbus discovered America, did he know that it was America?"
Ed. Clifford: "Sure! Because the look-out man said, 'I see dry land'. "
Mr. Smith: "When water turns to ice, what is the greatest change?"
Leo Glennon: "The price, sir."
One day this Spring, Arthur Harper's car was stuck in the mud, and he was busily engaged with
a shovel, digging it out, when john Haggarty came strolling by and said,
Arthur answered: "No. My engine died here, and I'm digging a grave for it."
Like a startled frightened fawn,
"Lightning" runs across the lawn:
Dashes into S. T. C. Spa, and
Stands herself before the bar.
"Four orange and one lemon squeeze,
And make it snappy if ou please:
For in four minutes, I'll,be late
And that will settle "Lightning's" fate.
So, gangway - make the campus clear,
Lightning's coming in high gear.
