DR. WILLIAM l. SANDERS
Your class is distinguished in several ways. You
are the largest postwar class to graduate, you number
among your membership the first graduates of the tive
year nursing course, and you are entering your respec-
tive protessions ot teaching and nursing at the most
opportune time in the history ot either profession. The
leadership you are trained to otier is sorely needed by
your state and nation, and it is my wish lor you that
you discharge your responsibilities as leaders with the
same alacrity that you accept the privilege ot leader-
ship. Heartiest congratulations to you!

Sixty-four seamen, all novices, boarded the good
ship '48 for an adventurous four-year cruise.
Vllhewl The crew hadn't minded the first knot of
the trip to the ship, but those last three or four knots
had ended Just in time, as our home port and Myrtle
appeared on the horizon. With T.C. as a home base,
we saw a new life open to seamen ff Frosh in other
words. Maybe we shouldn't have said that so loud,
We were as proud as punch, but those ensigns and
lieutenants were husky brutes. The boatswain
ordered,"all hands on deck." VVe stepped lively and
rowed to shore. To our surprise there weren't any
5 petty officers to keep us in hand with their blackjacks.
Heavens! We had arrived.
Bangl! Every sailor of us experienced that mal-
de-mer of initiation when all our new found sophisti-
cation, maturity, confidence, and poise were swept
away by the brighter lights of the school. The gi-
gantic baggage tags and green bows naturally
helped us to stand out among the vast throngs Oi
of the student body. We resembled a modern artist's
concepticn of chaos. We were the unwept, un-
honored, unsung heroes of the 20th century.
But our voices were wonderful, and our frosh as-
sembly was the best in T.C. annals. Of course there
was a slight disagreement as to its merits. The pennies, vegetables, old shoes, etc. that greeted
each act were stored for future frosh.
The ship doctor prescribed a freshman reception and thanks to the upperclassmen we had a
snazzy time and made many new acquaintances which were to become lasting friendships. AND
the upperclassmen were human and quite likeable.
Soon the sailors were scurrying from fo'cas'le to engine room in search of their nautical equip-
ment fr- books!
POINTS OF INTEREST:
The Freshman-sponsored Carnival had little time to get underway for Carnival time brought
sadness into hundreds of hearts when Dr. Charles l-lerlihy was taken from us. There was a wrench
in every heart for the warm, simple, kindly man who had steered many a bewildered student
ship safely home. His spirit still is a bond of friendship stretched out to each and every troubled
soul to help one over the hurdles.
Men -flet us repeat -f men hit the gangplank in the second semester and a basketball team
sprang up which carried the F.T.C. banner proudly. Tn fact the spirits of young and old fno re-
flection, alumnil soared. The green and white was on the march.
Class day hit us with all the awe and wonder it possesses. Maybe our hoops wiggled, but our
thoughts were firm as we pictured the scene three years hence. Remember those gorgeous Rus-
sians and Brazilians, the whole United Nations theme?
Our first shore leave fAlleluial and all the child prodigies went home to brighten our local
spheres of action.
The crew returned to duty, tired but willing - with a few less men. We weren't worried for we
were big shots now, spelled Sophs.
Experienced as we were, turn and turn about brought new galley slaves as we initiated a
younger group, under the watchful eyes of those ranking admirals, the faculty. l-lad we really been
as gullible as those youngsters fwe seriously doubt it.
POINTS OF INTEREST:
The ship was really jumping as we prepared for the inaugural of our personable Dr. Saunders.
We had gained a very admirable Admiral.
The Halloween party we put on was acclaimed the most shocking in history. Could be because
of the shocking apparatus in the tunnel of horror.
And believe it or not we will never forget that magnificent, stupendous, colossal snow sculpture
we fashioned at the carnival. lt was rumored to be a skier. Now what prize did it take?
As we were saying, time moves on. The junior-Senior prom off campus, the Gav-Hawk formal,
and the Sax dance certainly made the liberty minded gobs sit up and take notice. T.C. was kicking
up its heels.
And class day! Was it terrific in practice as the gobs really dished out those American folk
dances. Then came the rains and our class day went up in rain.
THE l:'LEET'S IN! Our second shore leave!
Promoted from the ranks the luniors came thundering back for a year of business - no adolescent
stuff. After a few hours at dear Old Alma Mater we decided business is business, but who's got
time for that?
POINTS OF INTEREST:
T.C. got a real stab in the arm with the return of veterans and juveniles clamoring to get within
our pearly gates. We were so glad to receive such "fine minds" into our fold. Stories of the good
old days at T.C. began to be outshone by the jumping social and educational calendar.
And believe us the juniors really helped make the "Mikado" the success it was. Why sure,
many of the charming, swaying, young lasses were experienced tars of '48. And who do you
think those handsome men were - none other than '48ers.
We scrubbed the decks for our Iunior prom. As full fledged petty officers we had our own prom
off campus. Henry Ford may never have known the wonderful time his Wayside lnn gave us, but
we left our stamp on the lnn just in case.
Half of our staunch crew bravely weathered that shake-down cruise talked of in whispered tones
as "training." Broken in body and sometimes in spirit, they time and time again faced the innocent-
faced bedeviled builders of tomorrow, lt all resulted in gray hairs and hearty laughs.
FUNlTEfa new feature -- made even the trainers hilarious.
LIBERTY! Our third shore leave!
Under command of the Sec. of the Navy the good ship '48 set out on the last part of its voyage.
A relatively calm sea set the ship on its way. lt was wonderful to be officers. The poor seamen
were lucky to have such kind officers and philosophical ones at that tho huml. Our ranks were
swelled by swabbies-our ship was popular this year.
POINTS OF INTEREST:
The other half of our class was subject to the de-
lights of training as witnessed by the casualty list.
Every activity A scholastic or otherwise - was in
full swing. We snatched at every chance to get to-
getherffthe Halloween costume ball, the Christmas
dance, the Gav-Hawk formal, the funior prom, the A
Senior prom, Funiteeeverything, because our col-
lege delights, anticipations, challenges, and friend-
ships were numbered now.
We did the things and a little more that the tradi- e z V
tional Senior does feven the hilarious ordeal involved 9
in picture posingl. We know the Senior Assembly
will go down in history - our last prom go down in L
memory-our signatures go down in Saxes-our o
friendships go down into hearts-our feet go down
under the freshmen arches with firm steps. 0
Honorable discharge in sight! As the grand ship U
of '48 pulls into port its crew knows there's much a . e a ' '
awaiting her and hope someway by some power she
has grown enough to meet these tasks. Great or
small, the crew will never forget that ship of ships,
the U.S.S. '48 -God Speed Her!

During the l947-48 season the Student Fcrurn engaged in formal debates,
forums and radio discussions.
The club varsity teams debated both sides of the national forensic gues-
tion, "Resolved that a Federal World Government Should Be Established."
They met the debating societies of Worcester Tech, Springfield, the Elms and
Amherst on this question.
lack Pitinger, president of the 'World Federalist Club at Harvard, under
the sponsorship of the Forum spoke at T.C. urging the adcpticn cf a Federal
World Government. Mr. Pitingers talk brought forth a lively discussion and
question period. Geoffrey Harwood, news analyist, described broadcasting
techniques at the April assembly.
Club members participated in a guest forum on ccllege scholarships at
Fitchburg High School. Everett Eastman spoke against offering scholarships
and Mary Truland against clubs offering them and lames Gray in favor of
federal aid and Floy Sarasin for athletic scholarships.
The radio series called "College Student Gpinionf' given cver the radio
station W.E.l.M., was begun in the fall and resumed in the spring. ln these
radio programs, which were transcribed, two students from the visiting college
and two from Fitchburg defended their opinions on a current tcpic. They
cross-questioned one another and then an expert on the particular subiect
under discussion closed the program with a criticism and evaluation of the
students ideas. The first of these programs was a discussion on the "Clcsed
Shop" with Massachusetts State College at Devens. The "Marshall Plan"
was the topic discussed with Holy Cross, "Youth Recreation" with Clark Uni-
versity, "Socialized Medicine" with Worcester Polytechnic lnstitute, "Universal
Military Training" with Tufts, "General Education' with Bcston College. and
'Housing' with Massachusetts State.

The war curtailed Dramatic Club activities somewhat, as it did most of
the other campus activities, because of the absence of male members. How-
ever, the club continued to function during this time with the holding of meet-
ings and the presentation of plays, under the expert direction of Miss Belle
With the return of the men, and the increased enrollment, once more there
is potentially a good Dramatic Club on the campus. Plans for the enlarging
of activities of the club have been laid along two lines: the developing of the
talents of students who wish to act, the organization and development of a
group whose interests are solely backstage. The Dramatic Club has functioned
along these lines under the sponsorship of Mr. Daniel L. Healy and the able
directorship of president Everett Eastman. Robert Proulx has been in charge
of the group interested in backstage work, and everything from scenery design
and painting to specialized lighting effects has come under his direction.
lt was the Dramatic Club's turn this year to present the major production
of the year for the public. "The Male Animal," the play chosen by the club,
is the story of a college professor who is suspected of communistic inclinations,
and the various difficulties that arise in his mode of life, both acadamic and
marital. After practicing diligently for several months, the cast presented "The
Male Animal" in a manner which received admiration and praise from all who
were fortunate enough to see it.

the campus. It is affiliated with the New England Student Christian Movement
which is a fellowship of Protestant student and faculty groups committed to
the will of God.
A comparatively new organization at Fitchburg, the S.C.A. has made
great progress since its organization two years ago. This year for the first time
a local minister was appointed chaplain of the group. Beverend George E.
Lang, of the Beth Eden Baptist Church in Fitchburg, served as Chaplain this

The interest of the Mohawks entered into the field of dramatics this past
year. Fun-Nite, sponsored by the Mohawks and the To Kalons, proved highly
successful. The cast succeeded in creating a jovial feeling and kept the audi-
ence in roars of laughter throughout the entire performance.

ln 1921 the faculty and students of this college founded a society for the
purpose of furthering social and fraternal relationships and for fostering the
appreciation of English. The name given to this group was the Gaveleer So-
ciety. Colors were chosen for the society, black symbolizing strength, and gold
representing character. Later the three Greek letters Lamba, Phi, Sigma,
which mean Leadership, Knowledge, and Strength were adapted, as well as
the motto, "Amici usaue ad anas."
Through the years the Gaveleer Society has been prominent on the campus
as a group devoted to the best social and academic interests of the college.
During the war, the club was inactive, but after reorganizing the year before
last, the members determined to renew the high standards set by their founders
and fellow members.
This year's club designed and built a compact crystal ball. lt was first
used at a dance given by the Gaveleers for the school on February 19th, and
was met with the approval of everyone. lt is available for all school functions.
On April Sth, the Gaveleers held their assembly. Mr. Leo Gittzus, class
of '41 and a fellow Gaveleer, spoke on lndustrial Arts Education in the Massa-
chusetts school for the blind at Perkins lnstitute, Watertown. On the same
program his wife, Mrs. Gittzus, the director of the deaf-blind department in
the same school, gave a demonstration, with the aid of one of her pupils, on
teaching the deaf-blind.
Some of the plans for the future are: the redesigning of the fraternity pin,
decals with the three Greek letters, and a larger program of activity for the
entire student body. "Carpe diem!"

A very successful intramural basketball league was carried on with
keen rivalry prevailing among the six teams participating. The teams entered
Were: Mohawks, Gaveleers, Esoterics, Comrnuters, Freshman, and the Club
Haymon. Much color was added to the play as many of the teams appeared
sporting new uniforms.
This year the varsity did not carry a lay Vee team with them. Some of
the League games were played as preliminary attractions to the varsity games.
When the visiting teams were accompanied by their TV. squads the intramural
teams took turns playing them. Each team in turn also accompanied the varsity
on their road trips. This proved an added stimulant to the individual par-
With a successful basketball league registered on the records, the board
now will turn its attention to the softball diamond. Keen competition and much
fun is in store for the student body as this year's play promises to be as

The following teams are entered in the Softball League: Gaveleers, Mo-
hawks, Esoterics, Ramblers, and Peasants. Good Luck and lots of fun to all.

Coach Bob Elliot's Green and White soccer aggregation enjoyed a suc-
cessful season with 3 wins and 2 defeats against strong opposition. Wins
included: Suffolk U. l-Og U. of Mass. tDevensl 2-lg and Bridgewater 9-2. Losses:
M.l.T. 4-U: Clark l-O.
Co-Captains lim Theodores and Fred Miller paced the team throughout
the season. Returning lettermen included: "Max" Moczulewski, lim Theodores,
Fred Miller, Bill Graham, lim Fiorello, lerry Snow, Bill Sullivan, Walter Sulli-
van, George Krikorian, Dave Vennberg, Leo Gouin, Lou Scanlon, and "Swede"
Marshall. The newcomers included: "Gus" Amaral, "Mike" Busso, Leo No-
wacki, lack King, Dick Bowland, Bd Ahearn, George Mailman, Balph Cluff,
Lyn Erickson, Iohn Apone, lim Mclnnes, George Morris, and Bob Poscas.
Hard Work and the experienced guidance of Coach Elliot produced a
smooth functioning unit. "Max" Moczulewski was unquestionably the out-
standing player on the TC. squad. He is perhaps one of the greatest goal-
tenders ever to perform for the Green and White.
Co-Captain Miller paced the teams scoring surge. This is the third year
of varsity competition that Fred has held the scoring honors. lim Fiorello,
George Krikorian, and Gus Amaral turned in excellent performances in the
Bill Graham and lerry Snow led the hard-driving, ever-alert halfback
line that continually kept the opponents on edge. Co-Captain Theodorcs and
Bill Sullivan held down the fullback slots. Bemomber Sullivan soloing down
a clear field at Devensg and Theodores 75-yard tally at Bridgewater?
Prospects for l948 are bright as only Miller, Fiorello, and Graham will be
lost through graduation.

The Green and White basketball team enjoyed their most successful sea-
son in many years, winning 14 and losing 5 games against strong opposition.
This included 10 wins of their 14 N.E.T.C.A. Conference games, good for second
place in the Northern Section Conference standings.
Newly appointed Coach William "Bill" Provenzani and Athletic Director
Bob Elliot produced a well-rounded, smooth functioning squad of thirteen men.
Veterans from last year's club included Captain lim T'heodores, lerry Millane,
Fred Miller, Dick White, loe Degulis, Max Moczulewski, and Paul Harrington.
Capable and promising frosh included Ed Sandomierski, Bobby Farrar, Lyn
Erickson, Bud Erickson, Dick Bege, and "Zeke" Schulze.
The Falcon's started off their season at a terrific pace, winning six straight.
Many of the games were nip and tuck throughout, and the season provided
many thrills for the spectators. The team held the distinction of not losing to
a Bay State club, or of losing a game on their home court. Previous road
losses to Keene and Plymouth were later avenged on home grounds. Scoring
honors went again to Ierry Millane as the high-flying Falcon s passed the 1000
point mark for the second straight year.
The victories of the Falcon's follow: Salem 58-38, Willimantic 58-55, U. of
Mass. CDevensl 71-68, Farmington 64-44, Gorham 46-41, Lowell Textile 36-34,
