DR. WILLIAM I. SANDERS It is with your class, the class of 1947, that Fitchburg has reached its full post-war stride. The class has distinguished itself through its initiative and indefatigable energy in reestab- lishing the pre-war traditions of the college; in addition it has stimulated a fuller program of college life that it deeds to the classes that follow. Congratulations! MISS MARIE GEARAN We, the class of 1947, dedicate this book to Miss Gearan, whose unswerving loyalty to high ideals has been our inspiration and whose warm-hearted enthusiasm has been our en- couragement. We shall always remember her with gratitude as our understanding friend. mamasu ■ ■ -■ • : ..-: ■-.- ,.-: ,....--«.- ' .. -.„■•■ J. -•.--- ..

Senior c Lo 9 It was September of 1943. A new mark of unimpeachable maturity, sophistication, and assurance settled in a remarkable fashion over the assembled throng on the administration steps. Each in his own nonchalant way was prepared for the madly gay life pf scholarship and, subordinate to this, the social life about to be launched. Shortly, however, to our bitter amazement, we discovered that nobody likes a freshman except the Student Cooperative Blanket Fee Committee. The student body began to rub our poise the wrong way in a savage amusement called initiation. This wouldn ' t have been so trying if we hadn ' t considered ourselves definitely on the " in " with " Ham and Eggs " . For two weeks we lived in a little world of colossal green rag bows, and our future friends were then only inch high names on baggage tickets suspended from the neck, but we clung frantically together, a mighty bulwark against those ridiculous upperclassmen who refused to see us as intelligent pursuers of knowledge to apply to everyday living. During this time we learned how dismal we looked with five pigtails and without lipstick, and how we should properly drill with a yardstick, simultaneously playing leapfrog with our coats but- toned regulation style up the back. The library, of course, was out of bounds, consequently explaining why such commendable habits have persisted so noticeably in the senior class. , However, our probation period proved successful, and at the conclusion of our assembly we became recognized as human beings and gladly submitted to a quiet life of textbooks, teas, and toil. Undoubtedly, all are aware that these experiences took place during the war when many educational necessities were scarce. Men too were scarce. Of course, there were the naval air cadets but not enough to satisfy everyone. The situation was desperate, yet we were sup- posed to make a howling success of the Winter Carnival Ball. Friends, it was a howling suc- cess. The plan to invite a group of selected young soldiers from the nearby army post was enthusiastically adopted. We hesitate to elaborate on the details of this affair. Perhaps it will suffice to say that the girls were provided with most unusual material for their diaries and that we defy anyone to find a senior girl who still affirms that she prefers older men. We faithfully turned to our books again until our class outing at Willard Brook, and then, after decorating Class Day hoops, we went home for the summer, crowning a year of scholarly endeavor. The above explains why the class of ' 47 was less frivolous than most sophomore classes really are. You see, we had lived, suffered, et cetera. We returned hopefully in the fall, still upholding our ideals of college life even though the number of men on campus was extremely limited. We decorated the gym with gusto for a Halloween Barn Dance, complete with a horror tunnel and the Swami ' s corner. We had a grand time learning to square dance to the tune of a fiddle. All the decorations, including paper bag horses and barn door, were consumed in a huge bonfire to the singing of our class song. Late in Janu ary we lost our cherished friend, Dr. Charles M. Herlihy, who had greeted us so warmly as freshmen only the year before and who had planned our future with us en- thusiastically with the understanding and sincerity characteristic of a gentleman. Our loss and that of F. T. C. was great. The second semester witnessed a slight increase in the number of men students. No time was wasted in organizing a basketball " team. Spirits soared high as we keenly observed our boys ' successful playing. It was a wonderful sensation to see things gradually returning to their normal stages. We looked forward to our junior year. The first part of this next semester buzzed with plans for the inauguration of our new pres- ident, Dr. William J. Sanders. He arrived to assume his duties in September and with his dynamic personality and scholarly dignity won our hearts and confidence instantly. More me n came back. We rejoiced in the return of so many fine minds to education at the conclusion of the war. It was a time for making new friendships, and for many, renewing old friendships. We listened with interest to the veterans ' fascinating accounts of the " old times " at T. C. We gladly accepted these former members of the classes of ' 40, ' 41, ' 42 etc. as members of the class of ' 47. Together, a rapid development in education, activities, and spirits was inevitable. As T. C. was beginning to regain its former status, half our classmates dedicated them- selves to shaping young, minds in the training schools with the new " integrated curriculum " . To modestly mention a startling achievement, the class won the snow sculpture contest during the Winter Carnival. The end of our junior year was marked with a junior-senior prom off-campus, the first of its kind to be held since the war. T. C. was back to normal! This became more evident when we gathered for our final year. More members joined the class of ' 47. We took an active part in our clubs as they resumed their traditional activities and attended each game of basketball, baseball, hockey, and soccer. From September to January, the other half of the class of ' 47 enjoyed long low shoes, arithmetic papers, brand new frown lines, and laryngitis. Then all melted in together again for the last few months of college delights, anticipations, challenges, and friendships. We presented our traditional assembly, attended our final prom, signed everybody ' s Sax, pledged undying friendship, promised to write letters, and marched under traditional freshman arches like traditional seniors. Yes, Alma Mater had sympathized with her gauche darlings in ' 43, smiled while she molded the wisely foolish, commended growth in ' 46, and wept in ' 47 because mothers always weep when children grow up and go away.

V J tudent Cooperative Council ip All undergraduate students of Fitchburg Teachers College are members of the Student Cooperative Association which was instituted to coordinate and consolidate students ' extra-curricular activities. It supervises all matters pertaining to student life which do not come within the jurisdiction of the faculty. The legislative body of the association is the Student Cooperative Council composed of four officers and eight representatives, a man and a woman from each of the four classes. This council is the organ through which school affairs within the jurisdiction of the students are discussed and regulations proposed. THE STICK, pending reorganization, did not get into production until the latter part of the school year. The new STICK, although confined to a few editions, presented news and features of current interest and also published editorials which were timely as well as constructive. student j l orum Besides varsity debates on the national college questio n — " Labor ' s Share in the Management of Industry " — with Worcester Tech., Worcester Teachers College, Boston, Springfield, Amherst, and Williams Colleges, a series of club forums entitled, " Let ' s Talk It Over " , was held at the college. On the radio, federal aid to education, juvenile delin- quency, socialized medicine, and the occupation of Germany were discussed with Tufts, Devens, Holy Cross, and the Elms. =JJ)ramaUc L tmb During the past year the Dramatic Club has centered its activities around the funda- mental work of the theater. In addition to the two plays which have been produced, regu- lar meetings have been held for the purpose of practicing basic principles of acting, make-up and staging. Every member was urged to take an active part in all this work and enthusiasm was shown throughout the year. N tub As one of the leading organizations on the campus the Glee Club has a fine reputa- tion for the standards of its performances. The return of the men to the club has widened the scope of possibilities this year, and as a result, the presentation of Gilbert and Sulli- van ' s Mikado was an outstanding success. n ewman L iul? The Newman Club provided a program of religious instruction and social activities for Catholic students. The monthly meetings included prominent speakers, student dis- cussions, and social activities. The January meeting of the New England Federation of Newman Clubs was held at F.T.C. this year. This was the first meeting of its kind to be held on this campus. Worship, action, and fun are keynotes of the Campus Fellowship. Semi-monthly meetings on and off campus include discussions, speakers, devotions, and socials. ■ Arrt L tub The purpose of the semi-monthly meeting of the Art Club is to help the members grow in the field of creative expression by experiencing art activities with such media as water color, oils, metalcraft, stenciling, block printing, and the graphic arts. Many of the club members entered their work in an exhibition of local talent at the Art Center. The club heard several people speak on the different media of art and enjoyed several teas at the Art Center. J ki L litb The Ski Club entered its second year with the intention of providing more outdoor activities in the form of outings and skiing. The club sponsored an assembly showing films on the various techniques and skills of skiing valuable to all students. okawk tub To foster professional improvement, increase social welfare in student life, develop proficiency in athletics, and to promote cooperation with the alumni are the chief purposes of the Mohawk Club. Soangetaha, the by-word of the club, has a special mean- ing in which each letter stands for one of the qualities of a true Mohawk. Ljaveleer S octet This year the Gaveleer Society celebrated its 25th anniversary. Throughout its twenty-five years on campus, it has constantly endeavored to uphold the tenets em- bodied in its constitution. By its daily application of the principles of fair play, good will, and brotherhood, the Society occupies a unique and respected position among the college organizations. Jokalovi S ociet t The year 1947 saw the organization of the ToKalon Society in which girls were united for the purpose of achieving happiness in college by doing th ings with and for each other. The club ' s pass-word is Gnothi Seauton which is cherished by the limited thirty members and four honorary members who have been initiated into the Society. (L $oteric Sc zieh t A group of like-minded men seeking to contribute to the aims of T.C. and seeking the benefits which come from fraternal association have banded together this year into a mystic order known as the Esoteric Society. ( psilon - l JaiA The Epsilon Pi Tau is a national honorary-professional organization operating in the field of Industrial Arts Education and Vocational-Industrial Education. The ideals of this fraternity are threefold: to recognize the place of skill in effective and democratic living; to promote social efficiency; to foster, publish, and reward the results of research in the fields of fraternity interests.

MdSoclatl Under the able sponsorship of Miss Bolger and the W.A.A. Board, the women of the college enjoy a well-rounded program of athletics. By cooperating with the Depart- ment of Physical Education in promoting the highest standards of health and sportsman- ship, a variety of sports is offered so that every girl may participate in at least one. The W.A.A. emblem, pin, and coveted blazer are awards that may be won by any girl who accumulates enough points by meeting health standards and showing a prowess in most sports. Field hockey, bowling, swimming, badminton, basketball, hiking, tennis, volleyball, pingpong, modern dance and softball were some of the sports enjoyed this year. Special events were the badminton tournament at Lowell T.C., the return matches at Fitchburg, round-robin basketball games with Worcester and Framingham at Framingham, and the varsity basketball games with Keene T. C. and Clark University Women ' s College. The Dance Group was entertained at Bridgewater T.C. for an afternoon of Modern Dance. Jose Lemon, noted dancer and choreographer was the guest instructor. Late in the spring a Sports Day was enjoyed at Keene Teachers College. Highlight of this year ' s activities was the annual meeting of the Massachusetts State Teachers Colleges Athletic Conference held here at Fitchburg on October 18th and 19th. Delegates were present from all the Teachers Colleges. GREEN BASKETBALL TEAM WHITE VOLLEYBALL TEAM BADMINTON ■ GREEN HOCKEY TEAM end rtkletlc (J-Soard The Men ' s Athletic Association was active in organizing an intramural program in Softball and basketball that gave a majority of non-varsity school members an op- portunity to engage in competitive sports. After a five year lapse, T.C. again enjoyed a successful season on the soccer field, winning three and losing two games. Highlighting the season was a 2-1 loss to powerful M.I.T. The team was composed of the following returned lettermen: Co-captains, Pat Rooney and Fred Miller; John Casey, Jim Theodores, Jim Fiorello, Bob Pickford, Jim Phillips, Mike Muraszka, and Leo Gouin. Newcomers include Bill Graham, Don Grace, George Krikorian, Bob Smith, Walt Sullivan, Max Moczulewski, Dave Vennburg, Jerry Snow, Lou Scanlon, Eric Scott, and Bill Sullivan. The T.C. basketball team enjoyed a successful season, winning twelve games while losing eight and placing high in the N.E.T.C.A.C. As most of the varsity and junior varsity members are underclassmen, prospects are fine for next season. Coach Elliot presented a starting quintet that had the team ' s high scorer Jerry Millane at center, Fred Miller and Jim Theodores at the guards, while the forward starting berths were held at different times by Paul Harrington, Ed Rice, Dick White, Eric Scott, Joe Degulis, and Max Moczulewski. Substitutes who saw considerable action were George Krikorian, Fran Pelosi, and Dick Rutka. The manager was Norman Frye. T.C. was representated on the baseball diamond for the second post-war season with a schedule of fourteen games. Returning lettermen include George Krikorian, Frank Towle, Rodger Martin, Ralph Gionet, Joe Bloom, Steve O ' Horo, Mike Russo, Rudy Alisch, and Pat Tramontozzi.
