Boston Collrge, 1934 THE Class of l935 has made a signin- cant contribution in the management of the Year Book. I approve whole- heartedly of your innovation in publishing in the fall a separate bulletin containing the lists of students and the advertisements of the Year Book. This plan is fair to the merchants who underwrite a large share of the cost of the Year Book. I predict that your plan will have widespread ac- ceptance in this state. CHARLES M. HERLIHY. WILLIS B.

GERTRUDE HARTY, Poet Laureate ,35 l20l I J L X. n .ti1- ll-it-, SENIOR CLASS HISTORY WITH every sweeping change in the organization of any institution there must be a "trail-blazer," and it was in this capacity that the Class of 1935 began its career as the first four year class in the Fitchburg Normal School in September 1931. On March 31, 1932, the two announcements that were to affect our school and our careers most greatly. were made--the right to grant the degree of Bache- lor of Science in Education, and the accompanying change of name to the Mas- sachusetts State Teachers College at Fitchburg. For the first time in its history, the college now offered programs in three departments: the Elementary Cirades, the Junior High School, and in the field of Practical Arts. Curricula were re- vised to establish the college on a collegiate basis scholastically, and to allow students the opportunity to major in the fields in which their interests lay. Physically, our college has grown just as rapidly and as strikingly. A new and beautifully modern Practical Arts building has been added to the campus: a dormitory, Palmer Hall, has been given to the men: and, due to the rise of our athletic teams to collegiate ranking, plans are underway for a new gymnasium. Our athletic field is also in the process of change, and will shortly be remodeled, enclosed, and equipped with stands. Many new features have also been added to the social life of the student body, the most outstanding of which are: the Junior Promenade, the Senior Prome- nade, the colorful Winter Carnival Week-end, the hilarious Saxifrage Stunt Night, and the Sophomore Class Day Hop. As "trail-blazers" we were confronted with many new situations. experi- ments, and problems. In meeting them we met with successes and failures, and if we blazed out guide posts for future classes at our Teachers College then we feel that we have been successful in our attempt to "fight all our might, and onward to victory strive." 1221 OFFICERS President .... . . .

Taking an important part in all class discussions. filling in words for Mr. Har- rington and arguing about Irish liberation are characteristics of Josh. As a printer he can't be beaten-as a student he is well at the front. Success to you "Josh," you've worked 'ard for it. F. BarreH "What a good looking collar and cuff set!" Barb must be used by now to the exclamations of all those who admire her crisp lingerie touches. Cordial and friendly to all, Barb is a well-known Hgure in campus life. Scholastically and socially she has earned an envied place, meriting the high honor which has been bestowed upon her-delegate to the N. Y. Conference, and a member of the Honor Assembly. Vice President Day Girls B53 Day Girls Council '3-1. .352 Delegate to N. Y. Conference '34, R. Belisle Bernard is a math. major. and many times his lucid ex- planations have saved the day for his less gifted classmates. Not only does he excel in the exact science, but he also is a talented and graceful dancer. Fred Astaire had better look to his laurels, Bernard, if you decide not to teach.

Slight as she is. her energy is boundless. and so is her Irish wit. Just to show that she is not one-sided, Benny lists among her other interests interpretive dancing, good looking clothes and Holy Cross.

Ar'I'l1ur Billings Eminently capable both as a student and as an executive, Ruth has given freely of her time and of herself to F. T. C. Serious and conscientious, she goes purposefully about her never-ending duties. For relaxation Ruth likes a game of tennis, and We are told she wields a far from gentle racquet. W. A. A.

Bixby A rock-bound Yankee, we suspect that Bixby is still wait- ing for a Whig revival, and if you ask him about it he can tell you exactly Why. Although no Babe Ruth, Arthur has given four years of unfailing service to the ball team, and his place will be hard to fill when he leaves. He is a careful, conserva- tive thinker Who can stick to a thing 'till it's done. Mohawks '32-'34, Vice-President '3-4: Baseball '32-'35: Soccer '32: Manager Hockey '34: M. A. A. Board '3-l: M, S. C.

Grace's high scholastic standing will surely give her a seat among the learned. Geography Club '32, '33, l25l Thomas J. Carney Tom Carney's good-nature is so contagious that even chronic grouches can't escape it-that's why everybody's always glad to see him. Whether the secret of Tom's exub- erance lies in always doing whatever he likes, or in always liking whatever he does, is not known for certain. However we do know that if he is a play-boy he somehow manages to take every trick. Mohawks '34, '35, Treas. '35: Tennis Team '32-'35, Capt. '34: Class Marshall '34: M. A. A. Board '34. Dorofhy F. Carr Dot is a curly haired blonde with a healthy zest for life. She is always ready for something new and enjoys it to the full. Dot may look harmless, but just engage her in an argu- ment and you'll find her swift repartee far from comforting. Hockey '32g Soccer '32: Basketball '32. Anna Clark It is claimed on good authority that Anna Clark's I.Q. is one of the highest in the class. She is talented in both art and literature, and thoroughly capable in every respect. It is unfortunate that F. T. C. has not made better use of her abilities. Glee Club '32-'34: Sec. of Class '33, Eugene W. Coakley "Coak," "Nini," and "Cherub," he answers to all of them -reluctantly. "Coak" entered the portals of F. T. C. smil- ing and time has wrought no change. 'Though no giant physically, "Nini" knows that size is not the measure of a man,--what's more, he can prove it. His success as president of the Cilee Club, and his afhrmed love of the opera leads us to suspect him of high ambitions. At any rate. he'll succeed, for when he says he'll arrive, he arrives. President of Glee Club '35: Gaveleer '32-'35, l26l John Cogoli John Cogoli is a big man and no part of him is out of proportion. It takes an oversized shoe to cover his foot, an oversized hat to cover his brains and an over-sized coat to hold his good-Will. I-le is undoubtedly built to do big things, and Whatever tries to stop him had better look out for its health. Dramatic Club '34: Glee Club '32, '33, '34, '35: Typo- graphical Society, President. Agnes T. Conlon "Ag" is the cheerful and carefree member of the Clinton Triumvirate-nothing ever spoils her good nature. Noon hour in the library the students get service with a smile from Agnes. We are confident that she will go places in her field capably armed as she is with its essential qualifications. John Connors Charles Serious minded, staunch and dependable, you can't look at John Connors Without knowing that he means What he says, and, what's more, that he can back it up. Red says that he can't be certain of getting a teaching job, but he's mighty sure that he'll have some kind of a job, and his friends are sure that the man who employs him will be lucky. Glee Club '32: Gaveleer '32-'3-4: President M. S. A. '34: President Dorm Council '34-3 Baseball '33, '34, L. Corkum "Charlie" is a man who goes his Way without an aye, yes, or no to any one. Luckily his way is usually the right way, but right or Wrong, he can give a good reason for it. Accord- ing to Hoover, rugged individualism made America's fortune, and here's hoping that it will do the same for "Charlie," Mohawksg Soccer '33, '35, l27l XX , is , wg- f N if ""'T .-qw Alice J. Cullinan Cully has endeared herself to so many people in so many different ways during the past four years, that it seems almost unnecessary to attempt to laud her here. Such an engaging personality, refreshing sense of humor and unbounded depth of loyalty could only bring her what We all hope will be hers-the very happiest existence.

Cummings Good taste is l-larold's strong point. Good taste in all things-cars, clothes, actions and companions. Reserved and attentive in manner, Harold seldom speaks till he has something worthwhile to say. Poised and self-assured, he seems to have already learned how to meet life successfully.

Davis No one in school has worked harder than "Bill" Davis. How he ever managed to do all his extra curricula activities and still make EPSILON PI TAU is a miracle. How the school is ever going to get along without him will be another miracle, but some superintendent is going to be lucky to get him on his staff.

Domina Did you ever hear of an even-tempered red-headed lrish- man? Rare as they are, F. T. C. possesses one in the person of "Don" Domina. Biologist, mathematician, superb dancer, business manager extraordinary-just a few of the sobriquets applicable to "Donnie" lf this doesn't land you a job 'iDon," nothing will! Mohawks '34-'35: Business Manager SAX. Rachel C. Dormin We admire you, Rachel, for your dramatic ability, your sense of humor, and your ability to so capably stand up for your rights. Qualities such as these will not go unrecognized, and will be the impetus behind your future success. Dramatic Club '32-'34, Anne T Dunleavy A To know Anne is enough to make us appreciate the merry side of life. Anne's redeeming qualities of good-heartedness and honesty will safely take her through life in anything she may attempt, Geography Club '32, '33, '34: Hockey '34, '35, Ellzabefh L. Ellis Deeply interested in art, practical as well as fine, Ellis has the distinction of being the author of our class song: one of our more persistent knitters, and a wood finisher of note. Rea cently, however, Ellis has acquired a Ford which, when filled to overflowing with co-eds, reminds us of the celebrated "Fresh Air Taxi Cab." Geography Club '3Z: Nature Club '34. '35: Hockey '32, lZ9l .-R' -Q' Armas Fillbaclr Clark lost a good man when Armas left there for Fitch- burg. I-le started here in the P. A. department, changed to the Junior High and became the third ranking student in less than a year. On the basketball floor he's a topnotcher, and even his dental catastrophe didn't effect his social prestige. From such a demonstration it is obvious that no odds can possibly beat Armas. Basketball '32, '33, '34: Mohawks. Evelyn E. Flal1er'I'y Irene M. "Ev" is small only in stature. No one has a larger heart or a more inquiring or alert mind than she. Sincere and con- scientious in the extreme, "Ev" is always prepared for even the most difacult assignment. Her anxiety to please and her determination augur well for a successful future as a school ma'amI Geography Club '32: Glee Club '32: Nature Club '32, '33. Fogarly Conscientious and dependable, Irene enjoys the enviable reputation of having never "let a person down." She made her musical debut as "Butterfly" in H. M. S. Pinafore. a courageous production which will be long remembered. With Irene's graduation the Cilee Club will lose a loyal member. Glee Club '31-'35, Leo Garrepy Hats off to one of the most enterprising and ambitious lads of F. S. T. C. No wonder you're thin, Leo, you're not still long enough to acquire any poundage. Leo has a finger in almost every pie concocted on the campus, and plays in an orchestra on the side. Lots of luck to the boy Who's not afraid to Work for what he Wants. M, S. A. Council: Glee Club: Orchestra. l30l Leo Glennon Quiet and shy, Leo expresses himself through drawing. Books, papers, desk tops. walls-every conceivable surface provides a canvas upon which he can create beautiful girls. handsome men, caricatures, or whatever his heart desires. Walt Disney will probably keep his job if Leo sticks to teach- ing. Treasurer M. A. A.: Treasurer Art Club '342 Mohawks '33, '34: SAX Staff. Barbara Gowell "Laugh and the world laughs with you: weep-" but Barb never weeps, she is one of our jolliest girls. The schools of Lunenburg had better place Barb, for without her the good old Athletic Club is headed straight for disaster. Geography Club '32: Cwlee Club '32, '33, '34, Nature Club '33, '34. Roberi' Hamilton Elmer S. Student proctor of the men's dormitory, twice president and No. 1 man of his class-such a record speaks for itself. Bob has accomplished all this without ostentation or apparent effort. His two "A-I-'s" in training have set a new record for the training schools and are good specimens of the sort of work he'll do in the future. Class President '34, '35: M. S. A.

Hansen There is something in Hansen's appearance that suggests strength, and the suggestion is more than fulfilled in his work. One of his strongest points in school has been his ability to tend strictly to his own business. Laissez Faire made the United States a billionaire nation, Elmer, and we hope it does right by you. l31l Chesfer D. Howar+h Chet is a gentleman of parts-looks, wit, brains, suuozr- faire, he has them all. Chet, however, does have one weak- ness and that is politics. At the mere mention of the word he loses all track of time and often arrives two or three hours late. But when he does arrive you can always count on him to give a good account of himself.

'Though she is just a very little girl, "Maddy" is far from being disregarded or overlooked. She is well able to stand up for her rights and dearly loves to debate, in a friendly way, of course. Possessing an alert and retentive memory. Maddy is usually able to come out on top. Debating Club '32-'34: Secretary Debating Club '32, '33: Hockey '32-'34, Soccer '32-'34, Johnson As the star athlete of F. T. C., Emile leaves a brilliant record for lesser men to envy. Soccer, basketball, baseball- they're all the same to him. His only grievance has been that he could not play more than one sport at a time. The Red Sox are now after him, but if he turns them down the teach- ing profession will gain a good man. Basketball '32, '33, '34, '35: Baseball '32, '33, '34, '35: Coach '33, '34, '35: Soccer '32.

Well, he had a good reason,-he's a Benedict with a family at home. Another reason for his seeming seclusion is an enormous number of unusual interests. model ships, death-masks, weather fore- casts-there seems to be nothing that John can't do, Epsilon Pi Tau: Typographical Society '34, l32l Vernon Laverdure Vernie has made a name for himself with his snappy come- backs-"You listen, I'm tired." Well, Vernie had a right to be tired for he certainly worked hard. One of the most friendly souls on the campus, you can always count on a big smile and a glad hand from Vernie. Geography Club '32-'35: Press Geography Club H543 Glee Club '32-'351 Secretary Glee Club '31 Roberf Lee Bob has been Fitchburg's star pitcher for four years.

Ludwig Edward Carl is still a little boy, but oh! so energetic. One can always depend on him for aid if one is in a tight spot. As a reward for his unremitting energy he was given the thankless job of prying us loose from our Gavel nickels. Carl must have some collection of worms by now if being an early bird means anything! M. A. A. Board '32, H533 Soccer Manager '33: Comptroller '32, '33: Nature Club '34, '35. G. Lynch A real gentleman of the old school, Ed's dominant trait is sincerity. Whatever situation confronts him he earnestly searches for the most perfect solution possible and can be de- pended upon to stand back of the decision he makes. As president of the Gavs.. he has demonstrated a propensity for making excellent decisions which will serve him well as a teacher. SAXIFRAGF Staff: Gavaleers, President '35: M. S. A.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY WO things happen during the Junior year to make it particularly interest- ing: the training period, and the Junior Prom. We were told by the savants of the school that training greys the hair, ruins the disposition, and impairs the health: so we entered with fear. For most of us the training period is over. We admit it was a grind, but it was fun: we wouldn't have missed it. E4 distinguished itself by doing a fine piece of work, and according to reports J4 will equal its record. The second great event, the Junior Prom.. was a smashing success. The library. in the hands of an extraordinary decoration committee headed by Ken Bowen. became a marvelous underwater palace through which the mermen and maids glided to the strains of Fred Jolie's music. As Juniors we feel that we are just beginning to realize the opportunities that surround us here at F. T. C. We have only one year left as underclassmen. but we look forward to it eagerly in the anticipation of crowding it with new hopes and new joys. OFFICERS President .,.. .......,... .,.....

But the heat of the sun did not match the warmth of our reception. On the baking campus, in classrooms, in the tiled lobby where Venus, Minerva 25 Co. looked on indifferently from their pedestals-everywhere. we received broad smiles, glad handshakes, and enthusiastic words of welcome. Thinking back now, we think that perhaps the upper-classmen realized then they were meeting an unusual if not unique, class. ' We first deviated from the ordinary run by producing an Initiation-Minstrel Show that was the hit of the season, in which we literally bombarded the gog- gling uppers with our talent. When we found we needed a president we elected Jerry McDowell, Mac led us bravely through dire decisions of class colors. of class song Cwhich is still a minus quantity, violating all traditionl, and of Valentine Dance postponement fbecause of frigid weatherj. Then we put a basketball team on the floor that couldn't win a game. The same team this year took the Interclass Championship by whipping every team in sight. In 1934 we placed Joe Rush at the helm, a man of no mean stature: he has there acquitted himself masterfully as is to be expected of one whose ancestors have been accustomed to going down to the sea in ships. In the cause of the higher arts, the class of '37 contributed Al Kempainen and Bernie. Roth, two stellar members of the cast of "The Servant In the House," the Dramatic Club's highly successful play.

S. T. C. On September 19, after about a Week of initiation into the mysteries of college life, they became full-fledged collegiates. The events of this red-letter day lno schoolj included, in the morning, a program of racing, paddling and tug-o'-War by the Freshmen, and, in the afternoon, a gala Freshman Reception which the guests of honor attended, a little the worse for wear but otherwise in good spirits. The Freshmen have been very active in extra-curricular activities. They contributed a skit to the Saxifrage Stunt Night which left the audience panting for breath. As the climax to a Winter Carnival Week-end, the Class sponsored a well-attended Carnival Ball which the "Gavel" didn't care for particularly. but which everyone else seemed to enjoy. They have taken an active part in dramatics, debating and cheer-leading, and athletic activities. Several have been members of varsity athletic teams including the Soccer, Basketball, Ice Hockey and Tennis squads. OFFICERS Presidem . , . . . PAUL GooDw1N Secretary ..... .....

I CHEER LEADERS In 1935, for the first time in its life, F, S, T. C. has had organized cheering. That it has been so effective is due to the group of excellent cheer-leaders that have been discovered in the student body. The hand-springs and back-flips of Kansanniva and Biros were athletic events in themselves. Joe Rush and Bill Purcell supplied the comedy relief, and Florence Lovell the inspiration. If the support of good cheers helped in any way to produce that championship basket- ball team, it is a feature in College life that Fitchburg will never again do with- out. I'38l MEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION HE lVlen's Athletic Board, which controls all of the varsity athletic endeavors of the men students and is sponsored by Mr. Carpenter, had its hands full this year in trying to apportion fairly a meager eight hundred dollars to ten loudly clamoring coaches and managers. With our infant Hockey increasing the number of varsity sports to five in number. it has been necessary by vote of the M. S. A., to inHate the lean budget by increasing the men's athletic dues for next year from live to eight dollars. Another dilemma the Athletic Board had to face this past year. and which will have to be faced in coming years, is that of the varsity schedule. As a college we do not desire contests with business colleges and textile schools. Colleges such as Dartmouth and Holy Cross are difficult to contact without pay- ing unreasonably heavy guarantees: then, too, a victory over F. T. C. would have little weight, while a defeat would mean much. However, our athletic activities are growing steadily and the time is not far off when all our sports will be on the college competition level. Certainly our attitude towards our varsity sports reached a collegiate level of enthusiasm this past year. The Board elected cheer leaders: cheers and songs were selected. and practice periods were instituted through the cooperation of Dr. Herlihy. The gratifying results were felt at once, both in the increased attendance at basketball games, and in the lively spirit shown there. Of course we had a championship basketball team, but there is no reason why the same spirit can not be produced at all our other sports contests. OFFICERS President ..... .,........ . . . A.

Last fall the vars- ity soccer squad closed its season with a record of two victories, two defeats and two tie games. The team opened its season October 3, playing Clark University in Worcester which resulted in a tie CO to Ol. Three days later Fitchburg invaded Hanover, N. H.. where Dartmouth College took the teacher-students into camp, 3 to 1. after a closely fought battle in the rain and mud. Bridgewater, traditional rival of Fitchburg, succumbed on October 20 to a garrison finish, staged by the Fitchburgers, 5 to 4, after the visitors led 4 to l at half time. Coach Southworth changed his lineup for the game with Ameri- can lnternational here on October 24, and Fitchburg emerged victorious 4 to 2. A week later Fitchburg and Massachusetts State College, in spite of two overtime periods, deadlocked 2 to 2, this encounter marking the third time the two elevens have engaged with the same result. The varsity concluded its season by losing to Springfield College 3 to l October 3l. Clifton Southworth of New Bedford was the student coach of the squad. He merits credit for the showing of the team and the brand of soccer playing he has displayed as a letterman for four years. Tommy Spring of Springfield who has been an outstanding goalie the past two years will serve as coach next year, and he promises an even better season than ever before. From the starting lineup T. C. will lose by graduation Aimo Teittinen, right fullback, Maurice Burns, inside right, Cliff Southworth, center forward: and Emile Johnson, a four year regular. Emile Johnson led the scorers with live goals. The goals were distributed as follows: Johnson-5 Burns-l Stacevich-2 Andrews-l Southworth-l Turner-l Godek--1 l 6 1 l ' Manager .M ..

ANDERS NELSON o-captains BASKETBALL THE l934-35 season brought to a climax four years of superb basketball at Fitchburg Teachers College. The class of l935 can feel justly proud of its contribution to the success of our basketball teams, for it was back in our freshman year that Nelson and Johnson received regular positions on the varsity. By our Sophomore year, Fillback, a transfer, had made the grade and helped toward another successful season. ln our Junior year Nelson was rewarded with the captaincy of the team. That year only three games were lost while Worcester Tech, Deerfield, Beckers. Bridgewater, Keene and Cushing were taken into camp. At the close of the sea- son Nelson was again rewarded, this time with the position of coach. Coach Nelson's charges had only practiced a few times when he came out with the statement at a meeting of the lVlen's Student Association, "l promise you the best season and the greatest team that you have ever had." Little Napoleon, as our diminutive coach was dubbed by manager Neclame, had seen the great power and even greater spirit that was present in his squad of sharp-shooters. The stage was well set-a good coach, a good system, a good quintet and a good, although brief, schedule. The first encounter was at the Armory. There Hyannis fell heavily beneath an 82-12 score. The team then travelled to Worcester Tech., to squelch that institution by a 49-23 victory before a crowd of l000. Again on our own court Assumption was turned back 45-33. So the season rolled on, amid cheers and songs, and victory after victory. Then came the real test-the Holy Cross game. A crowd of 1200 jammed the Armory, most of them eager to see the Teachers take the Cross. When the teams lined up the Holy Cross boys towered above our team, but before three minutes of the game had elapsed we were leading 8-0, and at the half we con- tinu.ed to hold the lead, 24-16. The last half was evenly fought. but at its close we emerged victorious, 37-301 lt was a never-to-be-forgotten year in the annals of Fitchburg basketball, and to Coach Nelson and his famous quintet goes our sincere admiration. l63l Q 1 "' fs Manager .........

Time and again the team marched on the dia- mond confident of success only to be overwhelmed by a series of unexplainable errors. To any one but a super-man like Coach Johnson, the difliculties he has faced might have seemed unsurmountable. He, however, has eliminated weakness after weakness until the team now can look forward to a really good season. During the season of 1934 the baseball team lost ten and won three games. That the team was steadily improving throughout the year is best proved by reference to the two games with Cushing. In the first game, May 12. Cushing was victorious by a score of 18-2, due to a spasm of errors by the home boys. At the second game, on June 2, the Fitchburg nine defeated the same team by one point-17-16. At the game with our ancient rival. Bridgewater, on May 19, the team showed their real calibre by winning ll-10. The game was a positive slug fest in which Johnson took the honors by hammering out two homers, one two-bagger and a single. There were thirty-three hits in all, during the game, including two homers, four triples and six doubles. This victory gave Fitch- burg a perfect record over Bridgewater for the year of '33-'34. The baseball team will watch the graduation of the class of '35 with regret. Emile Johnson, for two years coach and for four years star performer, Joseph Manning, captain, Arthur Bixby, Robert Lee, Harold Cummings, and John Connors, six men out of nine will receive degrees. They will be a severe loss, but the team faces the future confident of even greater success. l65l HOCKEY IN 1934, a pick-up ice hockey team of F. T. C. men played two games. This year hockey proved so popular and successful, that its tentative posi- tion as a varsity sport was changed to that of a permanent one by vote of the M. A. A. board, thus assuring erection of a rink and provision of adequate equipment in the years to come. The first ice battle of the current school year, with Cushing Academy. ended with the little-practiced Green and White at the short end of a 6 to l score. Still handicapped by a lack of practice, the boys went to Manchester, N. H.. on February 2, to be defeated by a far superior St. Anselm's team, by a ll to l tally. On February 8, playing its first game on the Teachers College rink, the F. T.. C. hockey team started its victory march. Led by Coach Maurice Burns and Matthew Godek it tramped over Becker Business College to the tune of 3 to 2. Three days later Cushing Academy came to Fitchburg and found a rejuven- ated foe. They were sent home with a 3 to 2 defeat. Still in a victorious mood. Fitchburg's ice men went to Groton to play to a l to 0 win over a highly touted Lawrence Academy team, the lone point having been the work of Coach Burns' accurate stick. ' Members of the team: Coach, Maurice Burns, '35 Manager, Arthur P. Bixby, '35 Marshall Knowlton, '36 Donald Tracey, '35 Hollis Moore, '37 John Shea, '35 Paul Waring, '38 Thomas Carney, '35 Ernest Savoy, '38 William Purcell, '36 Robert Norton, '37 Donald McNeil, '37 l66l leaf TENNIS A. VETERAN tennis team will be assuming the offensive against its old rivals this year, having the entire personnel of last year's squad and re-enforced by several newcomers. Paul O'Connor will again coach the netmen and David O'Brien will be their Captain. The rest of the squad consists of Thomas Carney, Allen Kempainen. William Johnson and William Purcell. Hollis Sargent was Manager last year. Bernard Belisle will manage the team this year with Marshall Knowlton as assistant-manager. Out of twelve games played last year, we won six. lost four and tied two. Both matches against Becker's College, Keene Normal, and one against Bay Path Institute were won. The games played with American International College and Cushing Academy resulted in a tie, while honors were shared with Bridgewater Teachers College. each winning on their own courts. Being greatly overpowered by Bryant-Stratton Institute, we lost both matches to them. This year's schedule includes games with the old rivals, American Inter- national College, Bay Path Institute, Cushing Academy, Keene Normal, and Bridgewater Teachers College: while our new rivals will be Worcester Tech, Clark University, Assumption College, Tufts College, Rhode Island College of Education. and New Britain Teachers College. Despite the fact that the schedule this year will be the hardest ever faced by the College team, We have every hope for another successful season. l67l WOMEN'S ATHLETIC BOARD HE Women's Athletic Board under the guidance of Miss Bolger and Mar- garet Splaine has accomplished a great deal this year. Every sport has had a successful season due to the untiring efforts of its respective head. The success of the conference held at Fitchburg was largely due to the smooth functioning of the board. The Women's Athletic Association owes the board a rousing cheer for directing the course of girls' athletics and making this year one of the best ever at Fitchburg.

THE Annual Athletic Conference of the Massachusetts State Teachers Col- leges held its sessions on Friday and Saturday, November 15 and l6, 1934. at Fitchburg. Delegates from the various State Teachers Colleges attended together with their instructors in Physical Education. Peg Splaine, President of the Fitchburg W. A. A., presided during the Con- ference, and Winnie Dodge acted as Executive Secretary-Treasurer. Miss Bolger and Miss Stafford acted as faculty advisors. The Fitchburg girls who attended the Conference were Kay Mannix, Cappy Disken and Priscilla Kenney. The highlights which made the conference such a huge success were many. It opened with an address of welcome by the presiding oflicer followed by greetings from our own College President, Dr. Herlihy. The main speaker of the assembly was Miss Alma Porter. Assistant State Supervisor of Physical Education, who gave a most interesting talk on the subject of "Girls' Basket- ball in Massachusetts." The remainder of the morning was spent in the giving of reports by each of the colleges on questions concerning all of us. We were fortunate in obtaining Mr. Frank S. Mason, past president of the Appalachian Mountain Club, as guest speaker at our afternoon assembly. The entire faculty and student body attended his address on "The Appalachian Mountain Club-A Bit of Its History and Its Outdoor Program." We will all remember without difficulty the most enjoyable and entertaining party of the year-the "Country Fair" on Friday night. The program in- cluded a most unique fashion show, a short skit, a turtle race, fortune telling, dancing and many different booths at which every one enjoyed taking chances. Much credit is due Kay Mannix and her committee for the success of the evening. Following the business meeting and hockey games on Saturday morning, the visiting delegates and instructors returned to their various colleges with a feeling that this Conference had been a great success in every way. l69l q if HOCKEY IN THE fall our W. A. A. sports began with hockey. After a few hard practices the class games Were played off in a round-robin tournament. As a result, the Senior E 3's and the Juniors, who played as one team, took the honors. After several Orange and Black practices, for which a number of Freshmen turned out, the Orange and Black tournament was played. In the first game, the Blacks were the victors with a score of 4-0. The second game started off with two Orange goals, but this spurred the Blacks on, and in the second half they managed to pile up 4 goals for a decisive victory. BLACK ORANGE Berleid R.

First a round robin tournament was played off between the classes in which the Juniors were the victors. Because the Blacks were the champions in hockey, the Orange were determined to win in soccer. How- ever, after keen competition and fine sportsman-like playing by both teams, the Blacks managed to beat them by a narrow margin. The lineups were as follows: ORANGE BLACK A. Kyte C. Disken E.

Splaine ws bln u WOMEN S BASKETBALL THIS year basketball had a longer season than usual. Much interest was shown in the round robin tournament which confined itself to competi- tion between class teams. Practices were well attended with the result that the Orange and Black turned out two good teams. The Orange stole the championship in basketball this year from the Blacks by winning the first two games of the series. Last year F. T. C. edged a victory over the Worcester Y. W. C. A. team by a score of 28-20. This year, the best players of the Orange and Black had the opportunity to go to Cambridge to play a representative team of the Sargent College of Physical Education. We all certainly shared their joy, when our team came back victorious by a score of 40-20, This served as a brilliant climax to the season and has aroused a wave of enthusiasm that will make for even better basketball next year.

Our first party was the Welcoming luncheon for the Freshmen. The home- like atmosphere of the lunch room was enhanced even more by appropriate decorations. After a good dinner, Miss Bradt spoke a few Words of welcome to all of us, encouraging us to more fully enjoy our years at F. T. C. The most important occasion of the year was our Women's Student Govern- ment Banquet in which the Day girls joined with the Dorm girls to make one of the most delightful parties of the year. At our annual Christmas party Santa Claus anticipated one of the Associa- tion's long felt desires by presenting us with a radio, and we sincerely hope that ensuing classes will derive as much pleasure from it as We have already. NVe also hope that the Day Ciirls' Association will carry on with the same happy spirit of friendliness that is so characteristic of it today. OFFICERS PFQSIICIIQVIT .... ..... .,... . . . .

The gala event of the year was the union of the Dormitory and Day Girls at the Student Gov't Banquet with Eva Ducharme as toastmistress. The "Travelers" and the A'Sojourners" were described by Ruth Billings and Vir- ginia Robbins. Mrs. William H. Perry gave a colorful talk on Italy. The Old English Christmas Banquet was presided over by the lord and lady of the manor, and the jester, Genevieve Vachowski, played an important part. The childish spirit of Miller Hall girls prevailed at the Kiddy Party and Santa remembered all. Amid dances, pajama parties, and banquets, the short year came to a close.

The asso- ciation is represented by a council made up of representatives from each class whose business it is to bring before the council the problems of their respective units. The activities for 1934-35 included Freshmen initiation, all-school social. lVlen's Students' Banquet with Dr. Ernest W. Butterfield, Commissioner of Education in Connecticut, guest speaker. Another activity was the publication of the Freshman Handbook, and weekly dances. the proceeds of which make it possible to offer awards to the men students gaining the most points in participation and cooperation in various activities of the school. Donald Tracey was elected as student representative to the New York Con- ference this year. Due to lack of funds only one representative was chosen, but the report Don made in Assembly was good enough for several men. The M. S. A. is already laying plans for an even better Freshman initiation next year. We are also anxious to improve on all activities for the coming year, and will welcome any suggestions from the student body. OFFICERS President .... .......... . .

During its existence through- out the year "The Gavel" did much to promote school spirit by its compre- hensive news of events and its editorials, pertinent to college thought and discussion. Nine new members were welcomed into the club soon after the memorable "open night." The first degree of initiation provided good entertainment for the older members: the second degree tested the fiber of the new: and the impressive third degree ritual commenced the growing together of the old and new. The weekly programs of speaker, interspersed with socials and parlia- mentary procedure meetings, were sources of educational enlargement, and fur- ther cemented ties of friendship. The club year will be concluded with the annual banquet and reunion in June, a pleasant windup to an unusually fruitful year of activity. OFFICERS President ...... ,....,...... . . .

As the last flames of another Mohawk Pow-wow die to the ground, many of our braves graduate. To them we sincerely say, "May every heart be free and kindness never fail." Among the various activities of the Mohawk Club this year the following are outstanding: October 29, when Professor M. C. Burns illustrated "progressive trends" in the field of pedagogy at the annual open meeting. The proud presentation of the Arthur C. Harrington Trophy to our basket- ball team for their fourth consecutive win over Bridgewater. The presentation of Noel Coward's "1'll Leave lt to You", a light comedy in three acts that was received with enthusiasm. The annual Gay-Mohawk formal dance on March 15 in the college library, one of the most colorful events on this year's social calendar. The Mohawk Club will bring the year to a close with a banquet in the Hotel Raymond. At that time the pipe of peace will be passed among the honorary alumni and the present members. There will also be an impressive installation of officers for the coming year, and to them go our most sincere best wishes for success in 1936. OFFICERS President ..... ........... . .

We have exchanged debates with our traditional rivals, Keene Normal, and we added a new scalp to our belt when we defeated a team from Bay Path Institute. The object of our inter-club debates has been to create a practice ground from which debaters can be chosen to represent us against competing clubs. They have proved so good, however, that on January ll, one was given in the assembly. The exceptional work of Ida Rovno on that occasion is a good sample of what we are doing. Ai few of the less formal activities of the club have been the performance given on Stunt Night. work on a mirth provoking mock trial, and an attempt to revive the old fashioned declamation contest. To all who are interested in a good time combined with some excellent training in public speaking, the Debating Club extends a cordial invitation. OFFICERS President . , ,r,...... ,.

At that time President Willard Davis. gave an outline of the activities to be undertaken during the year. To strengthen the club's Hnancial standing, it was suggested that poster Work advertising school activities be solicited from all the organiza- tions in the school, and a reasonable charge made for the cards done. The plan worked out very well, orders coming in throughout the year. Miss Pearl Duncan, chairman of the Assembly program committee, recom- mended that the club stage another series of famous art pictures similar to the one which was so well received last year. This suggestion was carried out early in the spring and proved highly successful. To take the place of one of the club's regular meetings, Willard Davis and Miss Lamprey arranged for a lecture tour of the Fitchburg Art Museum. As a climax to a year which has been a success both socially and financially, the Art Club will visit the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. OFFICERS Pf9SlldC'l7I . . . . , ....,...... , . .

LEO GLENNON l37l NATURE ASSOCIATES THIS group is composed of students, Who, because of a common interest, have banded together under the name of "The Nature Associates." This organ- ization is unique in that it does not have officers, dues, or stated meetings. Any member may call a meeting or plan a definite project and notify the others as to the date on which they will assemble. Marvis has furnished the leadership for the year's activities. but much of the realization of plans and all-round good fun has been due to the good nature and cooperation of our sponsor, Mr. Randall. The activities of the past year have been diversified as shown by the follow- ing program. September--Hike to Watatic. Business Meeting. October--I-like to Monadnock, Selection of Moths. November-Bird Feeding Station. Turtle Race. December--Penny Drive, Christmas Party. January-Skit for Stunt Night. February-Valentine Party, Sliding Party. March-Moving Picture Entertainment, Maple Sugar Party. April-Trip to Benson's Animal Farm, Business Meeting. May-l-like to Wachusett, Trip to Museum of Natural History. Boston. June-Moth Collecting Trip, Farewell Party. l88l TYPOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY HE "Typo" club has been organized to promote an interest in. and a knowl- edge of printing and allied industries. Trips were taken by the club to newspaper plants, engraving companies, magazine and book publishers, and paper mills. At the meetings problems related to the teaching of printing have been discussed. The most ambitious undertaking of the club has been the printing of the Saxifrage Directory. The success of that project was one of the important con- tributing factors to the excellence of this year's SAXIFRAGE. and served as an excellent practice field for our amateur printers. It has been a very successful year in every respect and an excellent start for even greater usefulness in the years to come. President . . . . . . JoHN Coooti Vice President , . . .

FIRST. we do hereby declare and make known that all injustices, including extra courses, three o'clock classes. assemblies on child study, notebooks, lesson plans. et cetera Ibroad al, during the past four years are, at this moment and hereto, forgiven and stricken from the records forever. AMEN. SECOND. we do bequeath the following items to the Junior Class in faithful trust that they will be cherished and fostered as heretofore. l. All ideals. dignities and attitudes duly formulated, labelled and spoken of as professional, the same of which have been little used and are still in good condition. 2. The said class to be given the sole right to offer the residue of above- mentioned in CU, to the Freshmen the same who may if of sound and suffi- cient reason, refuse. 3. The seats of dignity and seniority in assembly. the locality of which is inappropriate for sleep or study. 4. One annual Stunt Night which will no longer be original. 5. All unpaid towel money and other bills which are in good standing. but warrant future attention. THIRD, to those who frequent the smutty haziness of the Men's Rest Room we do bequeath the following articles: l. One radio without untimely encores. 2. One deck of assorted cards comprising the sum total of fifty-one and one-half. FOURTH. to those who frequent the purified atmosphere of the Day Girls' Room we do bequeath the following articles: l. Six virgin ash trays forever to remain unsmirched by the non-pro- fessional weed. FIFTH, to the Freshmen we do bequeath all our extra courses which may be used as "busywork" during the ensuing three years. SIXTH, to the following professors, as tokens of our affection we do be- queath the articles here named: 1. Dr. Percival, a moral or material substitute for the normal curve. 2. Mr. Harrington, one Big Ben alarm clock that shouts. 3. Miss Nixon, the remaining aristocracy of the school. 4. Mr. Weston, a home he can call his own. 5. Mr. Anthony. song-leader, one rousing cheer. 6. Miss Hassell, one special policeman. 7, Miss Perry, a more symphonic chord with which to restore order. l96l SEVENTH, we do bequeath all our ideas lacking originality, and undying support Cwhich also includes our dyingj, to the future success of the publica- tion, "echo of school thought." EIGHTH, to the undergraduates of the lVlen's Dormitory we do bequeath the following: l. One can of red pepper, said ingredient having the happy faculty of ex terminating ants. 2. One set of fire alarms not nocturnal in their habits. 3. One canine quadruped of the male species. 4. Our credit at the Spa, also the bills. NIN'FH, to the Mohawks we do bequeath a tomahawk with which the Heap Big Chief can protect himself. TENTH, to the Girls' Dormitory we offer our sincere regret for all "Unwanted Jewels," and lack of couches on the front porch. ELEVENTH, to all undergraduates we do hereby offer the suggestion that a substitute be found for Rindge Road, the latter, like many subsidiaries of the educational institution, being outmoded and archaic. TWELFTH, finally we do bequeath, to the future preservation of peace and sanctity of the library, one last, long and solemn whisper. In testimony whereof, we have, to this our last will and testament, set our hand and described our seal. CLASS OF 1935. Signed, sealed, declared and published by the Senior Class of 1935 as and for their last will and testament, in the presence of us, who at their request and in their presence and in the presence of each other, have subscribed our names as witnesses hereto. - Typewriter Desk.
