Why a High School Education?
To all the parents, friends and teachers
present this evening, I am very happy to
be able to extend a most cordial welcome.
By attending the graduating exercises of
the Class of 1931, you evince your inter-
est in our High School, and I sincerely
hope that you will find something so
pleasing and Worthwhile in our program
that your enthusiasm thus aroused will be
I think that now everyone realizes that
a high school education is absolutely nec-
essary if one is to attain marked success.
The farther one goes in higher institu-
tions of learning, the better fitted he is to
meet the demands of life, because it is
becoming increasingly difficult to succeed
in any profession without a thorough
study of and training in the chosen line of
work. We all have a goal for which to
strive, and since it is not easy to win in
any race, we need the definite assistance
that only an organization similar to a high
school can furnish.
From our school life, We certainly learn
to appreciate the value of cooperation,
for only by doing our share can we be
granted special privileges. We also form
social contacts which have their own
The most beneficial result, however, is
the training which we receive in the
course We have pursued through our own
inclination. The curricula presented to
us for our choice are: Commercial
Household Arts, Manual Training, Gen-
eral, and College Preparatory. From the
very names, it is easily understood that a
widely varied field of study is offered, and
something which appeals to his inclina-
The Commercial Course offers the field
of preparation for obtaining a business
position. Future accountants, typists,
stenographers, and bookkeepers receive a
thorough training in their respective lines
of Work. After leaving high school, many
will probably go farther, and if they have
mastered their initial instructions they
will surely discover that they have a firm
foundation on which to stand. Thus, the
High School does its part in contributing
towards a bigger and better business
The Household Arts Course, as its
name implies, is intended to assist the
homemakers of the future in preparing
themselves for the task which is awaiting
them. In these days of financial depres-
sion, when it is necessary to practice econ-
omy in everything, it is very fitting that
the girls should be instructed in the art
of managing homes. They are taught to
ply the needle skilfully and to make arti-
cles of wearing apparel. They also learn
to become proficient in culinary duties,
and through experience they acquire the
ability to serve dainty as well as hearty
repasts. In addition, they have a course
in home nursing. Some of these girls will
undoubtedly enter other institutions of
learning, preferably Normal School, and
certainly no one can assert that the High
School does not do its best to give them
a definite background.
The purpose of the Manual Training
curriculum is to instruct the boys to be-
come adept and efficient in the art of
manipulating tools. They are taught not
P"3eEf3f7f 7-HE CPI-IILOMATH
only to create new pieces of woodwork,
but also to repair broken ones. There are
many lessons to be learned in building
new things and in renovating the old,
surely those who have been enrolled in
this course for the past three years
have prohted exceedingly from their ex-
Each course offers an opportunity for
choosing varied electives, but for some
pupils the General offers most of all. Some
might claim that by following it, one
would gain very little, and this would be
true if a pupil desired to enter the busi-
ness world or to go to college. In this
case, he could certainly not be advised to
enroll in this curriculum. If, however, a
student is undecided and has no definite
ideas concerning his future, he may, by
entering the General Course, and taking
diversified subjects, find something which
really stirs his interest and furnishes him
with a broad education and a more defi-
The fifth and last division, the College
group, may be divided into two sections,
scientific and liberal arts. However, in
high school there is not such a marked
distinction between them as in college.
One foreign language is required and
almost everyone studies two. In every
course a year of some science must be
taken. The aim of the College Course is
to prepare everyone enrolled in it to meet
the requirements of the school or college
which he desires to attend after gradua-
In considering the possibilities in all
the courses offered, it is easily understood
that a student can not fail to profit by
enrolling in any one.
In addition to his regular duties, almost
everyone engages in extra-curricular ac-
tivities. Many avail themselves of the
opportunity to participate in the different
sports, namely, baseball, football, basket-
ball, and hockey.
Every year, many clubs representing
varied fields of interest are formed. Each
one is sponsored by some member of the
faculty, a.nd all are very well attended.
In every way, our High School life
brings uncountable blessings to us. How-
ever, it is a recognized fact that one can
not obtain something for nothing, and
certainly this principle holds good in high
school. We always reap what we have
sown, and we derive benefit from our high
school in proportion to the amount of
time, energy, and thought that we have
put into our daily work. It has very aptly
been said that 'Success is ninety-eight
per cent perspiration." Sudden bursts of
genius will not help us very far along the
road of life. On the contrary, faithfulness
in doing our daily tasks counts more than
Our high school life not only teaches
us the value of faithfulness, but also of
cooperation, which helps us to form social
contacts and leads us to develop many
admirable and necessary traits of charac-
ter which assist us in achieving success.
Indeed, I am sure that we all feel that we
can never fully repay the debt of grati-
tude which We owe Framingham High
School' Mary Garfield, '31.
The Wider Scope of Public Educafion
My subject this evening is one with
which, I believe, most of you are not
familiar, namely civil and social educa-
tion. I am not going to mention this sub-
ject in connection with training in private
schools, for indeed we all know the vast
number of schools offering such educa-
tion. No, my subject is to be more local,
more personal. It concerns the social and
civil training of your own children, our
future citizens, in our own public schools.
Let us travel back in our minds to
eighty years ago. At the time, students
'THE CPHILOMATH P"!4eNf"e
went to school merely to be educated in
the basic principles. "Reading, 'riting and
'rithmeticf' the three all-important 'fR's,"
were greatly stressed, and when they were
mastered, a person's education, at least
his public education, was thought to be
sufhcient. But these people who were
graduated from our schols were our lead-
ers, and as such were expected to execute
various social and political tasks. People
began to realize that our citizens lacked
education along certain lines. A most per-
plexing problem faced our great educa-
tors. How could our young people be
taught to be worthy citizens without inter-
fering with their scholastic education?
The problem was studied and restudied
by many eminent scholars. Did they solve
it? Certainly they did, and in a most
creditable manner. The method is found
in a description of the governing bodies
of the Framingham High School.
The foremost student-governing organ-
ization in the school is the Student Coun-
cil, which is in reality a sort of miniature
House of Representatives, composed of
members elected from each home-room.
This is our Legislative Department where
problems of school government are solved
and where school laws are made. These
solutions and laws are subject to the
approval or veto of our Principal, who is
the executive head of our school.
Aiding the Principal in the enforcement
of the school laws is the Marshal Force,
which is composed of students elected by
the members of the school. The chief
duty of the latter is to supervise inter-
Our judicial Department is vested in
the Executive Committee of Marshals, in
the Executive Committee of the Student
Council, and in our Principal.
Thus we have right here in our own
school a small but efficient government,
which has as its model the government of
the United States of America! What bet-
ter training could there be for our future
citizens? Along with the various courses
which the students are pursuing, they
learn how to vote, supervise elections and
execute laws. They learn to put aside
personal feelings and to elect candidates
that are best suited for office, to study
situations carefully, and make laws wise-
ly, and last of all to obey each and every
law that is made. It is in this manner
that the civil training of students is cared
for in the Framingham High School.
Now we come to the social education,
which includes pleasant things like the
planning of parties and dances, as well as
the more touching but none the less grati-
fying task of caring for those who are in
need of aid of a practical nature. The
former business is cared for by the class
or organization which is sponsoring the
social function. The students carry out
every phase of this work-refreshments,
checking, and building-patrol. You may
be puzzled at the phrase Ubuilding-
patrol,'l and consequently I will endeavor
to explain it. At every social affair of the
year, several students volunteer for so-
called ffpatrol-dutyf' Usually they bear
some mark of distinction such as arm-
bands or badges. These boys and girls
act as marshals, directing guests to their
various destinations and preserving order
in the hall and in the corridors. How
could these socials be other than success-
ful with such eager, willing cooperation?
As a sweet-toothed child leaves the
frosting on his cake to eat last of all, so
I have left until last what we consider the
most beautiful work of all, our charitable
work. This is a more recent development
in our school, and indeed it is our finest
and most interesting project. As an in-
stance of this eagerness to help these less
fortunate people, let me describe to you
the splendid work done by our high
school during the last Christmas holidays.
Our Principal, the executive head of the
Page Ten 11'
school, made the suggestion that we con-
tinue the Christmas work begun in 1928.
The matter was then thoroughly dis-
cussed in the Student Council and the
plan was adopted. A committee was
appointed by the president of the Council
to supervise this great project. Each
home room in turn elected a committee
to take charge of its business. Then a
family was assigned to each room. These
families were designated by numbers and
the students were told the number of
individuals in the family for whom they
were providing, as well as the age and
sex of each member. For two weeks
the building was buzzing with the voices
of cheerful givers as they heaped boxes
high with supplies. At last the final day
for contributions came. Such goodies,
such clothing! Boxes just crammed with
cheer for those less fortunate than we
are! Yes, indeed, their Christmas would
be a happy one, but those eager, generous,
young providers were blessed with the
merriest and most beautiful Christmas
Nor is Christmas the only time that
such work is carried on, for every
Thanksgiving huge boxes of food are dis-
tributed and during the year articles of
clothing are provided.
In this manner the problem of educa-
tion along social lines is solved. What
better solution could be found? Surely
there is no better, for by this method we
are taught by
experience is the best teacher.
Before closing my talk, I shall ask the
of the Student Council
and the Marshal Force to rise. Your
duties, fellow-classmates, have been many
and difficult, but during your three years
at Framingham High School you have
done your work willingly and well. Your
services have been deeply appreciated.
Not only are our leaders to be con-
gratulated, but also all the other students
of the Framingham High School who
have so kindly cooperated to make our
school outstanding in all its undertakings.
May our students, so carefully and
excellently trained along the lines of good
citizenship, ever continue to work for the
honor and glory of our nation, as they
have worked in the past for the honor and
glory of our school.
Virginia McNally, '31.
The Necessify for a Liberal Eclucafion
We, the Class of Nineteen Hundred
and Thirty-One, shall soon be citizens of
the world, in which intellectually or
physically we shall be responsible for
carrying on and contributing to civiliza-
tion. The question here arises as to how
we can best fit ourselves to do our share
in life with the greatest efficiency. The
only solution lies in the continuation of
our education, by attending higher schools
of learning if possible, and, if we cannot
have that privilege, by teaching ourselves.
It is to this paramount question of educa-
tion that I should like to call your atten-
tion this evening. Modern education falls
distinctly into two types: first, cultural
education, the study of liberal arts, in-
cluding such subjects as languages, his-
tory, music, philosophy, and pure mathe-
matics, secondly, technical education, re-
lating to the study of science and applied
The first type needs no introduction,
for mankind has been acquainted with it
since the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries,
when the scholars of that eventful period
called the 'fRenaissance" eagerly de-
voured all the classical manuscripts of
Greece and Rome, and built a foundation
of classical learning which has been
flourishing to this day. Classical sub-
jects have been quite frequently studied
and have been zealously sought for, but
THE CPI-IILOMATH Pf'8'eElf"'f"'
the tendency of the modern age is to read
them superlicially, gathering only-a dim
impression of their true meaning and
studying them only because they offer
diversion and relaxation from the daily
routine of life. This tendency is explained
by the fact that the rapid strides taken
by science in the nineteenth and twentieth
centuries have revolutionized all modes of
living. Modern life demands knowledge
which will give the individual control over
his environment. This knowledge is
strictly scientific, and to become efficient
today, one must have some technical
training. This type of education deserves
much Commendation because of its utility
to mankindg it has made possible our
cities of skyscrapers, our complicated fac-
tories, our elaborate railway and canal
systems-all achievements which could
not have been accomplished by the raw
muscle of man. Although these marvels
of science remain unchallenged for their
economic value, they cannot totally re-
place the liberal arts, which are an abso-
lute necessity for the progress of the
human mind. Scientific developments, if
unaccompanied by a knowledge of cul-
tural subjects, will eventually make man
unavoidably mechanical, causing him to
lose independence and self-reliance. He
will no longer have an aesthetic inclina-
tion, he will only be an instrument which
will act as an attendant, and harken to
the commanding voice of grinding wheels.
Today even the schools and colleges
are being influenced by mechanical enter-
prises, especially in the cities. In purely
technical schools attention is not paid to
giving the pupil acquaintance with the
magnificence of life, but to achieving
some definite result, to the amassing of
a certain amount of information which
must be stored up in the person's mind.
Because of these requirements the tech-
nical schools and colleges are tending to
turn out as a finished product of educa-
tion a human textbook of merely scien-
tific information. Is this the purpose of
education? Not if one is to believe the
words of Everett Dean Martin that
f'Learning is an adventure in any kind of
truth-seeking which changes the quality
of one's future experience and enables
him to behave not merely efficiently, but
wisely, with a broad view and a sympa-
thetic understanding of the many ways
in which men have striven to create mean-
ing and value out of the possibilities of
Back in the days when Greece was at
the height of her power only the free man
was permitted a liberal education, the
slave was held in subjection in part by
his lack of knowledge and therefore it
was a necessity that he remain ignorant.
In Europe, even today, liberal education
is for the gentlemen, the nobility and
those who do not work as laborers. But
here in America, where the opportunities
and advantages are greater than in any
other nation, the doors of culture are open
to any man who will devote himself to
a liberal course. The profits that man
reaps from these fields are undebatably
those which will forward human civiliza-
Whenever such phases of history as the
Roman Empire, the Hundred Years' War,
and the French Revolution, or such
famous names as Augustus Cwsar, joan
of Arc, Robespierre, are mentioned, the
liberally educated individual is rapidly
carried into the past to experience many
forgotten achievements and ideals, which
are unfamiliar to the man with the purely
scientific background. Let us not only
live in the present, but during this short
life which is given us, let us enter into the
pages of history to live a thousand lives
and to learn how past ages have at-
tempted to create for us a better world
with higher ideals.
Furthermore, by means of a liberal
Pflgf'TU'ff1'f THE Tr-11LoMA'rH
education man lifts himself from the dark
abyss of a narrowly practical life to a
plane of msthetic beauty which classifies
for him the meaning of existence. His
appreciations are intensified by his under-
standing of nature itself or as it is
expressed in enthralling paintings and
sculpture, stirring music, and immortal
literature. Affected by these expressions
of beauty, he soon adapts himself to a
life in which he will avoid the insignifi-
cant and seek the important. All this is
missed by the man with a meagre, techni-
One of the most important results of a
liberal education is the tendency to de-
velop an habitual ethical attitude toward
humanity. The ruthlessness of a machine
age is becoming apparent on every side,
but through examples and precepts the
man whose vision has been broadened by
acquaintance with the best of the past
has learned to desire honor, honesty,
character, true friendship, and world con-
tentment. Refusing to stoop to any falsi-
ty, this man enters into his tasks with a
fine spirit of cooperation, fairness, and
trustworthiness. He never permits him-
self to commit an act which would de-
stroy reputation or damage a strong per-
sonal character. He desires nothing bet-
ter than friends, and loves to feel that he
himself is worthy of another's confidence
and companionship. A peaceful mind, an
unprejudiced opinion, a broad under-
standing of humanity-these are all part
of the liberally educated man's ethical
The man with a liberal background
often becomes very influential socially.
Such a person is likely to belong to clubs
and other organizations, and to be inter-
ested in politics for the purpose of ex-
tending his widespread knowledge for the
benefit of his community and govern-
ment. His services to these worthy causes
are without personal gain, but offered
only to make his surroundings and the
surroundings of his fellow-beings finer
and better. He is an asset to the home
in which he tries to inculcate a feeling of
friendship and happiness.
Thus we see that the requirements of
education should not only be scientific but
liberal in order that we may open our
minds to new impressions and ideas, in
order that we may enter more broadly into
activities and pleasures, above all, in
order that we may go beyond the narrow
range of technical knowledge and mani-
fest in our daily routine the qualities of a
life really worth living. This is our indis-
pensable mission in life--that we, the
citizens of the future, shall contribute to
humanity not merely more technical
knowledge, more machines to make life
easier and at the same time more terrify-
ing, but that we, through our heritage of
the past, shall contribute a fuller compre-
hension of the spiritual values which
make life really worth living.

Valedicfory and Essay
Explorafion-Whifher Does H' Lead?
The same insatiable hunger for knowl-
edge which you, the people of the twen-
tieth century possess, has from time im-
memorial spurred man on to learn more
about himself and his environment. Man
has never been satisfied with his own
accomplishments, but has always been
impelled to struggle against tremendous
odds in order to advance to a higher level
of knowledge, prosperity, and culture.
In the quest to satisfy this incessant
hunger for knowledge, man has traversed
the six great continents, and sailed the
seven seas, plunging into the most remote
regions of the world to unveil the secrets
hidden within these outlying districts.
Always it has been the deeply hidden
secrets of the unknown which have lured
the explorer, the missionary, the adven-
THE CPHILOMATH Pf'KeThf"fef"1
turer, and the pioneer to leave the smooth-
ly trodden paths of the known world for
the tangled and seemingly impenetrable
regions of the undiscovered.
This characteristic is not typical of
man during merely the past few genera-
tions, but can be traced back to the very
earliest records of human existence, which
show constant evidence of man's desire to
acquire more complete knowledge of his
environment. Although this characteristic
has always been prominent, it was most
noticeable during the period of early
North American exploration.
Prior to the daring voyage of Chris-
topher Columbus in the year 1492, little
was known about the great watery wastes
which stretched away from the European
shores as far as eye could see. To be
sure, many superstitions and weird tales
were told concerning the dreaded sea
monsters which were thought to inhabit
these treacherous regions. It was the com-
mon belief of the seafaring folk that the
great sea of darkness harbored countless
dreaded creatures which in one gulp de-
voured vessels and their entire crews.
Still others believed that vessels penetrat-
ing these treacherous waters would sail
over the edge of the world and pitch off
into space. All these rumors were based
on superstitions which served to satisfy
the people of the time. However, actual
knowledge of these regions was lacking,
since none had dared venture beyond
sight of land for fear of the many dangers
which they believed threatened them.
Thus Columbus in 1492, with the added
goal of finding a shorter and more desir-
able route to the rich lands of the Far
East, guided his three boats out into the
uncharted waters of the dark sea to dis-
cover the real truths of these regions. He
and his band of scarcely one hundred fol-
lowers disregarded the generally accepted
rumors concerning the great ocean and
sought reliable knowledge of its extent
and other lands whose shores were
washed by its tides. For seventy long
days in their three small boats they
braved the dangers and perils of both
storm and calm, ever fearing that the end
was close by. Yet Columbus had faith in
his project, and he alone remained calm
and resolute when courage failed the
others. His stern determination to sail on
and on and on gave renewed faith to the
sailors, and encouraged them in their
Finally, on that memorable October
twelfth, the realization of all their hopes,
ambitions, and efforts was fulfilled when
the low lying shores of the Bahama
Islands came into view. Now indeed they
were repaid for the tremendous struggle
and sacrifices they had made to accom-
plish the fulfillment of their ambitions,
and yet it was not until a later age that
the true value of their work and dis-
coveries could be ascertained and appre-
After several minor voyages of explora-
tion among the numerous islands, the
bold crew of explorers set sail to retrace
their steps to the Old World, taking with
them knowledge of the extent of the great
ocean and the distant lands in the far
west, which had heretofore been unknown
to civilized man.
Thus, Columbus and his hardy band
were attracted by the mystery of the
great unknown, and were lured to venture
into the treacherous region in search of
knowledge. The information obtained by
Columbus and his followers greatly in-
creased the scope of man's knowledge,
and raised the intellectual standards of
Still man was not satisfied with know-
ing that the 'fsea of darkness" was not a
boundless expanse of watery waste and
that it was bordered by other lands, man
wanted to know more about the new terri-
tories-who dominated them and of what
practical value such regions might be to
him. Parties of exploration were organ-
ized in the leading civilized nations of the
world, each nation seeking to discover the
expanse of the new lands and to lay claim
to such regions as were best suited for
further development. These bands set
out from every nation to follow the course
charted by Columbus, and then penetrate
even more deeply into the unexplored
Again it was the desire for knowledge
of the unknown which lured men to leave
the luxurious life of the Old World to
risk the innumerable dangers and hard-
ships to which they were subjected in the
new territory. This insatiable hunger for
knowledge was common to all types of
humanity. Both young and old, rich and
poor, educated and illiterate left their
accustomed life to seek their fortunes in
the newly revealed territory. To be sure,
all had secondary motives for leaving
home and undertaking such a hazardous
mission, yet the primary purpose of each
exploration party was to reveal the
secrets hidden in the region, whether these
should consist of rich ore deposits, un-
usual botanical specimens, or merely
the source of a huge river. Each hoped to
discover something new which he might
impart to the knowledge of mankind.
As a result of these many trips of
exploration we find that man gained fair-
ly accurate knowledge of the coastal re-
gions of the new continents. Yet the
extent of these huge tracts of land re-
mained a mystery. f'How far does the
land extend?,' was the question continual-
ly confronting mankind. About this time
Balboa, a Spaniard, heard rumors that
beyond the new territories stretched a
body of water without bounds. Balboa
could not quell the urge to investigate
these rumors and consequently organized
a small party for exploration in the year
1515. This band, on arriving on the
Isthmus of Darien, began a long and
tedious journey across the short strip of
land which joins the two great continents
of the western hemisphere. For nearly a
month the unfortunate explorers Floun-
dered in swamps and boggy territory,
fought off the fatal tropical diseases, cut
their way through tangled jungle regions
and slowly forced their way through the
seemingly impenetrable jungle territory.
Finally, after many days of laborious
climbing, the small band who had sur-
vived the hardships of the journey
reached one of the many high peaks of
the Andes Mountains chain from which
they we-re able to view the great expanse
of water known as the Pacific Ocean.
Balboa had satisfied his curiosity, for
now he was assured that the newly found
lands were not boundless, but were
washed by the tides of a great expanse of
water, even greater than the Atlantic
Still man was dissatisfied. He wanted
to know the extent of this immense,
newly discovered body of water, and the
nature of the continent which must surely
bound it. For four long years, however,
none dared to undertake the hazardous
project, until in 1519 Magellan began a
long voyage down the South American
shore, ever seeking a passage from the
Atlantic Ocean to the body of water dis-
covered by Balboa. After experiencing
countless hardships, the crew of over two
hundred men rounded Cape Horn in their
live small sailing vessels, and set their
course westward. For one hundred days
the five small boats plowed steadily
through the calm blue waters-and still
no sight of land. Supplies diminished
with ever increasing rapidity, and hunger
grew to starvation, thirst to madness.
When their mouldy biscuits had been con-
sumed, the sailors ravenously devoured
rats, sawdust, mice, and even leather
from their shoes and from the ship's rig-
'THE CPI-IILOMATH Pdgeffffffn
ging. The men were on the verge of col-
lapse when land was finally sighted. Even
greater obstacles, however, were yet to be
overcome. The natives inhabiting the
islands opposed the adventurers, and in
the resulting battle many were killed and
four ships seized. The fifth, the Victoria,
evaded the natives, and after several
months' hazardous sailing, returned to
Spain with a crew of eighteen ghostlike
The globe had been circumnavigated,
the extent of the great sea was known,
and the identity of the bordering coun-
tries was ascertained, surely now man
was satisfied. Yet, the hunger was not
appeased. Now more complete and de-
tailed information was desired about each
respective locality, and consequently
exploration went on with even greater
energy than heretofore.
From that time on, the new territory
was developed faster than it had ever
been thought possible. Thousands of
homeseekers with their families invaded
the regions and settled along the coastline.
As more immigrants were attracted to
American shores, man penetrated more
deeply into the heart of the continent,
ever discovering new and important facts
which increased the scope of human
knowledge. Each succeeding generation
penetrated farther into the unexplored
territory, until today nearly the entire
continent has been explored and brought
under the iniiuence of humanity.
The great development of the United
States today is directly dependent upon
these thousands, yes, millions of men and
women who have contributed to the early
foundation of this nation. Without the
explorers, the adventurers, the pioneers,
and other early settlers, North America
would still remain an unknown and un-
explored expanse of land inhabited by
roaming bands of barbarous Indians.
Each of these classes has contributed its
share to American development: first, in
acquiring general knowledge of the con-
tinent as a whole, and then in obtaining
specific knowledge of each particular
So it has been with all branches of
activity. Every industry has had its
founders or explorers, and its supporters
who have built it up from a weakling in-
fant to a strong and prosperous industry.
In each instance the pioneers have first
sought general knowledge of the field of
activities presented the industry and then
have begun the long and tedious task of
acquiring specific knowledge of each
phase of that industry. Always general
knowledge has preceded specific knowl-
edge, and generalization has been the
parent of specialization.
For example, let us consider the rapidly
developing aviation industry. Twenty-
five years ago an airplane was a box-
kite-like contraption which liew. Man
knew not the phenomenal development
this crude affair would undergo in a
quarter century, nor the important part
the improved machine was destined to
play in the modern worldls activities.
The aircraft designers, however, began to
experiment and find to what limits the
use of such machines was restricted. Then
came the period of specialization in this
industry. Planes of all types, sizes,
shapes, and designs are now being devel-
oped to fulfill the requirements of the
machine in its various phases of activity.
Even today this period of specialization
is still in its infancy. In the future air-
craft will be developed more than at
present until the improved planes of to-
day will appear even more crude beside
the airplane of the future than Wright's
biplane appears beside the Ford tri-
motored plane of today.
So it is with all industries. Although
now it seems that the limits of perfection
have been reached in many of our leading
P48e55Xm"' 'THE CPI-IILOMATH
industries, there still remains great room
for improvement. Man has never been
satisfied with his own accomplishments,
and will continue to improve that which
he has already invented.
Even life is comparable to industry in
this respect. The first third of a person's
life is spent in acquiring general knowl-
edge of his environment, the problems he
is expected to face, and the activities
toward which he intends to direct his
efforts. The remainder of a personls life
is spent in specializing in some particular
phase of activity which he has selected as
his vocation. Always a person finds that
even though he may devote his entire life-
time to a certain phase of any activity, he
can never learn all there is to know in his
line of work. To be sure, it may seem
that the peak of success and accomplish-
ment has been reached, yet there still re-
main limitless regions to be conquered.
Tonight we, the class of 1931, stand on
the dividing line between generalization
and specialization. For twelve long years
we have tediously toiled to acquire a gen-
eral knowledge of ourselves and our en-
vironment. Like Columbus we have sailed
a great sea, but unlike the sea of dark-
ness which Columbus traversed, ours has
been a sea of enlightenment, namely, that
of education. Like Columbus, however,
we also have suffered and made many
sacrifices in order to achieve our goal.
Many times during our voyage we too
have been on the verge of surrendering
and returning, but some new clue has in-
dicated that our goal was within reach,
and we have revived our faith in our un-
dertaking. Finally, three years ago this
june, we, like Columbus, were rewarded
for our efforts when we received our
diplomas from the Junior High Schools
and felt that our long journey had been
Then, like Balboa, we realized that
there was something greater to be
achieved before we could rest comfort-
ably. The High School course offered
greater possibilities for advancement, and
so we, like Balboa, decided to investigate
and see just what was to be offered by the
new territory. As our venture became
more difficult, our numbers diminished
likewise, and the number entering High
School was considerably less than that
which had completed the Junior High
School course. During the past three
years some of us have made heavy sacri-
fices and expended unlimited energy that
we might progress through the high
school course and attain the lofty levels
of culture which it afforded. To be sure,
not all of us have been able to maintain
the pace, and a few have been eliminated,
much the same as the followers of Balboa
dropped by the trail as the ascent grew
steeper and more difficult. Yet those of
us who have succeeded in this mission feel
that the long and difficult trip has been
worth the trouble.
And now we, like Balboa and his fol-
lowers who stood on the highest peak of
the Andes chain, are standing on the peak
separating generalization from specializa-
tion. Behind us lies the wide expanse of
the sea of generalization which we have
already traversed, before us lies the
boundless and unexplored sea of special-
ization. We know not the dangers and
the rewards which lie within and beyond
this wide expanse, yet all of us will ven-
ture forth to navigate this great body.
Like the unfortunate of Magellan's crew,
many of us will never realize our fondest
ambitions, but will perish by the wayside,
but like the more fortunate of Magellan's
crew, some of us will succeed in traversing
this great expanse and will sail into the
port of achievement.
Today we stand between these great
bodiesg tomorrow we shall begin the long
and hazardous voyage across the great

'Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
And canlt tell where to find them"-
That was the embarrassing situation
which confronted me one June day in
1941, while strolling along Fifth Avenue
in the city of Nobscot, where I met an old
acquaintance, Madame Find Them, who
asked me whether I had heard from or
seen any of my former classmates. I was
taken unaware by Madame's sudden in-
terest in the lost sheep of the Class of
1931. Her question bewildered me. Per-
haps she could help! I invited Madame to
my home and there we made plans and
preparations for our never-to-be-forgotten
journey which would enable us to assem-
ble our lost flock. Thus at sunrise on the
following day we began our trip, which
proved to be full of excitement, thrills
and stirring adventures.
Madame and I decided to travel in up-
to-date style. But how? A whirr and a
roar of a rocketship answered our ques-
tion. What could be better than a rocket-
ship sailing through the vast expanse of
air into No Manis Land? The ship landed,
and we climbed on board, but who was to
manipulate the contraption? We waited a
few minutes, and our pilot soon appeared.
Who could she be? Blonde Hattie Anna,
known to us as Harrirttc Ralston! Hattie
decided it was well to go in the business
where thumps and hard knocks were re-
quired, having become accustomed to
jerks and bumps after riding in Frankie's
Oldsmobile for ten years. She informed
us she was flying to Mars!
We arrived at Mars in due time. Ac-
cording to the custom, all newcomers had
to visit the queen. We hoped that Her
Royal Highness was one of our lost sheep.
lllarjorie Bosworth ushered us into the
palace, and I suppose you have guessed
that the queen was none other than Betty
Button. Before we continue, I must tell
you tsurely you are all interested to
knowl that people seldom talk on Mars.
Their motto is '4Silence is Golden." Can
Betty live through it? We wonder how.
Betty told us she had left all her friends
on earth lexcept 'fMidgel'J so that their
ear drums might be repaired after record-
ing her perpetual talking.
VVe thought it was well to leave Betty
and HMidgel' in their distant haven of
rest and resumed our journey-this time
to our beloved earth. Harriette, in think-
ing of Franklin, had forgotten how to
operate our ship and we made a forced
landing in the Hawaiian Islands. There
we met a band of natives doing a most
exasperating dance led by that famous
triumvirate feven more famous than
Cmsar, Pompey and Crassusl Hazel
Jenkins, Irene Ellis and Helen Woodard.
They had been sorely disappointed in
love and sought the consolation of the
young and handsome lads of Honolulu.
Suddenly the melodious strains of music
reached our ears. At hrst it was mournful
and melancholy, and then it drifted into
that modern rhythm, jazz. Katherine
Flynn appeared singing, as she had done
in her good old High School days. Re-
member how much we enjoyed her solos
while perched upon the top limb of the
highest tree in Saxonville? That had been
ten years before and now Kate had only
palm trees. We were overjoyed in seeing
L 0 M A T H Page Nineteen
so many of our lost flock and were about
to depart when we noticed Gretrhen
Wyman, who was sitting upon a stone,
crying. Had she been deserted too? No,
we learned Gretchen was attempting an
unheard-of-feat-that of constructing a
Hill upon which she might blossom as a
Bud, once more. This desire was
prompted by High School experiences.
Poor girl, why not grow trees, instead?
In the course of events, Harriette had
repaired the rocketship and we resumed
our journey, flying due northeast to cold
and bleak Alaska. We landed rather sud-
denly in a snowdrift, but were absolutely
shocked at the sight which greeted our
eyes. There we discovered Margaret
Waterman, Rita Thompson, and Mary
Garfield bathing in one of the icy streams
of Alaska. Health had failed them and
the poor girls had sought aid in the
chilling waters of that desolate, northern
country. We were in doubt whether that
would prove beneficial and asked the trio
what doctor had proposed such a com-
fortable remedy. The name of the physi-
cian surprised us considerably, for it was
Ethel Blades. Ethel had studied medicine
for ten years and had e-xercised her pow-
ers on poor Mary, Rita, and Margaret.
We wished them the best of luck and left
them to explore that snowbound land.
Our explorations proved valuable, for
we discovered several of our lost sheep.
A short distance from where we were
parked was a stand which Madame and I
decided to investigate. Such absurdity!
Louise Guagenty was selling chewing
gum, five sticks for one cent. That was
quite a bargain, considering how much
Louise had paid for all the gum she had
chewed in Framingham High School. Was
Louise alone so far away from home?
Impossible, for Helen Gropp shared half
the so-called store and sold and demon-
strated her line of cosmetics. We hoped
their business might prosper and that
gum and cosmetics might flourish. Louise
P6'5eT1"e'1f9' 'THE CP!-11LoMAT1-I
informed us that Verna Bigwood had
moved to Alaska to establish a school sys-
tem which would enable her to become
superintendentg Verna was formerly prin-
cipal of the Saxonville junior High
School, but had left the school because
she couldn't take it with her. Her ambi-
tions were now realized, and the school
system was successful because of the loyal
assistants to the principal, Edith Carter,
and Mary Duran, her secretary. Night
was drawing nigh as we left our friends
and continued our explorations.
Madame and I chose Hollywood as our
next destination, as we thought some of
my flock might have gone to that beauti-
ful land of beautiful actresses and still
more beautiful actors. We went to an in-
formation bureau and came face to face
with Edith Winters. Remember all she
knew in school, practically everybody's
history, even her own? We inquired about
Dorothy Goodwin and learned she was to
be John Barrymore's leading lady in
"How to Make Love." The book was
written by Jennie Caplin and every inci-
dent was true and related to jennie's
personal experiences. 'fDot" was well
suited for the role and made a lovable
sweetheart, as she was an affectionate
wife in our Senior Play. Edith also in-
formed us that Mrs. Clayton Leavitt, for-
merly Narjorie Aldrich, resided in Holly-
wood with her husband and twelve chil-
dren. She had named her first child
Sereno. Queer, isnlt it? "Marj" had en-
gaged Anna Simorzetta as her cook be-
cause of the delicious cakes which Anna
could make. Mrs. Leavitt had a wonder-
ful home with a large grass plot in front.
The lawn was kept neat and clean by
We spent the day with Marjorie and
left in the evening to attend a perform-
ance entitled f'Our Dancing Daughters."
The cast consisted of Sophie Sakotviez,
Florenee Ryan, and Jeannette LaValley,
who exhibited all the modern steps with
grace and ease. They certainly knew how
to dance. The next number on the pro-
gram was the demonstration of a Danish
Drill by Elizabeth Hurzter, which con-
cluded the enjoyable exhibition.
It was very late when we left the
theatre, so Madame and I went to Hotel
Breault, owned and operated by Lea
Hubert. Lea received her rent on time,
just as she had collected her dues in the
Madame and I arose early the next
morning so that we might visit Holly-
wood's fashion centers. We found an
elaborate gown shop called HThe Alice
Mae." We entered and there stood Alice
Crawford, smiling sweetly at us. Alice
always did like clothes and she now de-
signed the dresses which she sold. UAV'
was overjoyed at seeing us, and told
Madame and me that Natalie Gilmore
was her model. 'fNat" was the type suited
for just that position.
After conversing a while with our long-
lost friends, we left 'tThe Alice Mae" and
journeyed to the arid waste lands of
southeastern New Mexico. We encoun-
tered Louise Garrahan looking for a Buck
in the lonely desert. She seemed very
angry, for her guide, Mary Gormley, had
led her astray into that miserable land
merely to search for Buck. In the mean-
time, we bade Louise farewell and walked
on. Madame and I encountered Mary on
the Santa Fe trail, fighting with an indi-
vidual who loked familiar. Yes, it was
Helen Friel. Mary had become irritated
over some witticism Helen had made tper
usualj and was pinching both her ears
fserved her rightj. We separated the two
and scolded them for acting like children.
Once again we resumed our journey.
Madame suggested we visit a crystal
gazer to find out about our remaining
sheep and their whereabouts. I thought
the suggestion rather wise. The person
:T H E ep H I L O M A T H Page TZl'6lIlJl-f!llC
who satisfied our curiosity was none
other than Gertrude Bradley, who read
into the future very fluently.
"In whom are you interested?l' she
asked in a friendly voice. "Is it about
yourself?" UNO," we answered, fftell us

crystal before imparting the following

French schools in the great metropolis of
Paris. The predominant figures in the
picture were Rena Carboneau and Ida
Bruce, who were visiting this well-known
city in the hope of discovering a quiet way
of collecting association dues for Mr.
fllargaret Cameron no longer called
Ethel ffjohnnief' for she had fallen in
love with---. Margaret asked us not to
mention any names.
Alma Guerrieri, over seven feet in
height, was parked upon a telephone pole,
painting skyscrapers. Evidently, Alma
was using her artistic talents as shown in
early high portraits of the Wigglesham
Another picture in the crystal was that
of celebrated university of Oxford, where
we discovered Eunire Peloquin and Vir-
ginia McNally studying the most impor-
tant question of the day, ffWhy men leave
home in Waylandfl Bertha Devine was a
preacher on ffHow to get by in Framing-
ham High School as lightly as I did."
Alice Murphy was the greatest his-
torian of her time. HAI" earned her repu-
tation because of the illustrious history
she had written about the Class of 1931.
Christine Leavitt was her able pupil and
hoped some day to be Alice's successor.
Madame suggested that if any mem-
ber of our class were ever lonesome, he
should turn to Alta Hamilton, the good
old ffauntien to all our class. How he
would enjoy her kisses and caresses! Ask
Next in the crystal, Madame beheld
Betty Shaw in a very puzzled state of
affairs. Betty was still undecided about
whom to choose-Montgomery or Rob-
bins. She ought to make up her mind
soon, for actions speak louder than words.
Another picture was that of a beautiful
home in New York City, where Mrs. Carl
Crawford resided. She was formerly
Doris Smith and now lived happily with
her dear husband.
Sometime you may have visited M.I.T.
and found Doris Slarnin in the chemistry
laboratory, mixing substances which
would enable her to grow-pardon me-
as tall as Wheeler.
In the town of Framingham, center of
Middlesex, state of Massachusetts, Ma-
dame Gertrude saw a new high school.
This magnificent building was donated by
Theresa Verdelli, Barbara Williams and
Kathryn Gorman. We certainly appre-
ciated their kindness.
Velna Sleeper and Harriette MeNeil
still insisted that two could live as cheap-
ly as one. Nevertheless, they meant well.
Elizabeth Skinner had written a book
on 'fWhy I Enjoy Movies" and "How to
Hurt One's Self in Gym."
Eileen Cunningham and Dorothy Flor-
cyk were having a wrestling match in
Nobscot Stadium. Gertrude Grossman,
the referee, found it difficult to decide
who was the winner and the wrestling
match was declared evenly contested.
Then Madame saw Annah Seribner
touring Europe, merely to go new places
and to see new things.

Suddenly Madame ejaculated as she
spelled a large firm, Louise Merrill-
Eztelyn lllelin and Company, manufac-
turers of Airbrakes and Iron Pins. The
manager was dear little Helen Mullens.
She certainly needs our wishes for luck
and success in managing the above firm.

come one of the greatest criminal lawyers

Madame Gertrude saw Sally Swett as
principal of Framingham's new high
school. She still maintained her shyness
when speaking to the men teachers.
Annabelle Lincoln had continued her
literary work, and had mastered the art
Another picture in the crystal was that
of an orange orchard in sunny Florida,
where Dorothy Greene and Anna Mc-
Anzilty were doing a thriving business.
They like oranges.
Dorothy Smith was a physical instruc-
tress in a girls' school situated in the out-
skirts of the city of Nobscot.
Mary Nori had reformed the whole
town of Coburnville and had made herself
mayor, thus using her high school train-
ing in Commercial Law.
Helen Caoagni was private secretary to
the President of the United States. Helen
surely deserved such an honored position.
Madame Gertrude saw no more pic-
tures in her magic crystal, for the en-
chantment had been broken. We had seen
or heard about our lost sheep. And so,
dear friends, we left the crystal gazer,
well pleased for such precious and enter-
taining information. Once more we jour-
neyed homeward, this time happy and
content. As for me-why bring that up?
Nevertheless, Little Bo-Peep had found
or heard about her sheep.
Marguerite Ayoob, '31,
On that memorable night I was holding
a little card party, consisting of Bud Hill,
Bob Woodward, the pride and joy of the
Robbins' family, and myself. Outside,
the wrath of the elements themselves was
at large. Thunder, lightning, wind and
rain, everything showed the anger of the
gods of storm.
Inside by the fire, we defied the tempest
itself. We played cards, listened to my
dry jokes, ate, drank--punch-and were
merry. But once the card playing became
dull, we started to argue, and then the
conversation turned to our future voca-
When the height of a good time was
reached and everybody was joking and
laughing, the storm, jealous of our merry-
making, took its vengeance. Lightning!
-there was a flash, an instantaneous
roar, a barrel of fire, and I was hurled
through the shattered window. As in Latin
class, everything went blank before me,
and I knew no more.
When I awoke, I was resting in a green
field dotted with flowers and palm trees,
so I judged I must be in a Southern
climate. I arose, stretched myself, and
walked over to a near-by road, where I
saw a bent figure plodding towards me.
What a surprise! I recognized the most
talkative person in our English class,
Kenneth Scott, but how changed! He told
me that his hard work as radio-announcer
was wearing on him. He seemed surprised
when I asked the date, country, and route
to Framingham, but so was I upon being
informed that this was May 13, 19505 I
was about a mile out of Miami, and the
next airship for Boston left on the mor-
CT H E CP H I L O M A T H Page 7'11'e1l!y-lhree
row. He thought he had betterbe going,
as he was supposed to be home, playing
horse with Junior.
After arriving at Miami and reserving
a room on the airship, I began my search
for amusement. Upon following a large
crowd, I arrived at the playgrounds,
where a circus was going on. The excite-
ment attracted my attention and I bought
a ticket. The first number in the main
show was a group of living statues led by
Herbert Brothers, beside whom was one
portraying "Silence," - Sain Feinstein.
The strong man who raised a Pullman
car window two whole inches-hitherto
unaccomplished-was even more interest-
ing when I found him to be George
Cassidy. Une other act deserved credit,
the acrobats. They certainly were fairy-
like, especially with agile Charles Hughes
as star performer. It comforted me to
notice a large, heavy net below him.
After such an interesting afternoon, I
chose to spend a more serious evening and
attended a lecture 'fWhy Woman Should
Come Second." I had a desire to be intro-
duced to the speaker, but found it quite
unnecessary as he was our illustrious class
orator, Pete Lernbo. He told me that ever
since he had spoken in Miss Hemenway's
English class on women coming second,
he was thrilled by the subject. Now he
was completing a tour of the United
States and Canada.
As the airship left for Boston the next
day, I decided the best thing to do was to
return to a hotel and get some sleep.
The next morning I was awakened by
a loud rapping at the door. With my con-
sent, in came the cutest little messenger
boy, oh, he was darling! Yes, girls, it was
George Nichols. From him I learned that
Bill Gibbons was manager of one of the
best "hock" shops in the vicinity, and
also Monsieur De Wolfe had become a
doctor, as we expected. Yes, a horse
Nichols left me a telegram, and with a
hasty farewell, disappeared. The message
wasn't for me, so I threw it away, hoping
the owner would find it.
As I had no belongings except those on
my personage, I realized the thing I
needed for my air flight was a topcoat. I
soon found the desired wearing apparel.
In the window of a store which bore the
name "La'uallee Brothers," stood James
Stevens---but how dignified! Quite right,
he was posing for Kuppenheimer Clothes.
Don Lavallee recognized me and told me
how after his beloved cousin Elden's
f'Fresh Water Ice Company" had been
broken by Harold Dieleinson's sale of
electric refrigerators, Elden and he had
come down here and started this clothing
The overcoat having been purchased, I

all too fast, and I arrived at my dock
with only a minute to spare. There were
two big airships, but which was I to take?
I decided on the one at the right and said,
"Feet, do your duty? I made it by
inches, but enough for me.
I had boarded the Wrong boat, and
after it was well underway, I found out
that it was a Round the World Cruiser, I
saw the captain and at first sight. I knew
everything was fine, as he happened to be
Ed Riley. He assured me of comfort dur-
ing the rest of the trip. Trained by a
course in Framingham High, Philip Ille-
Clain and Bill Fahey were the ship's car-
The next day, as I came down to break-
fast, I noticed a waiter singing the Lis-
terine song, Hjust a Gargalof' and by his
harmonious voice I recognized Bud Vose.
It also seemed strange when I sat down
to breakfast with Robert Wileox. ffPee-
VVee" informed me that he was stopping
in Italy, where he was going to take part
in the Olympics, capture prizes, and
break records in general. That afternoon,

everyone was planning what to do during
the day on shore. I concluded the best

of the Forum attracted me. I chuckled
when I recognized Ettore Venier dancing
the tarantella, Arthur Napolitano singing
folk songs. and Joseph Tartufi accompa-
nying them on one of those long, snaky,
accordions, and such sweet music!
As I was returning to the ship after
visiting the Colosseum, I heard a rattling
and a clanging and muttered to myself,
"Crockwell's Ford." Sure enough, out of
a side street fell the uModel T,'l still
draped together. In it were Harold Baron,
Roger Clapp, and Warren himself, who
professed to be making a tour of Europe
in the very wagon in which they were
I returned to my air liner, much
pleased with Italy.
The next morning I found myself in
Cairo, where a half-day leave was given
us. While roaming about the edges of
the town, I saw Carl Gebelein driving a
long line of old camels, not a calf in a
Visiting the royal palace, I found
Robert Burns as head usher in the Sul-
At the pyramids, I could just discern a
lonely figure sitting on top of the biggest
one. Resolving to find out the trouble, I
climbed up to him, only to find Earl
Lytell. He said he had discarded the
Hpink tootl1bru.sh,'g had used Palm-olive
soap, and he was a good athlete, because
he had 'fAthlete's foot," but he just
couldn't look like Harold Lloyd.
At our next stop, Bombay, India, sup-
plies were obtained. We acquired these
with the aid of an old friend, the manager
of the Bombay branch of First National
Stores, Robert Haggerty. We also met
there an old fortune teller, formerly the
star pupil of Miss Hemenway's English
class, Joseph Mahboub.
From Bombay we continued to Kutch-
ing, Borneo, which was interesting, but
uncivilized. Rocco Dura and Sanz Anti-
noli were trying to teach the natives how
to make and chew gum. However, I
found good intentions there too, when I
saw Everett Dunham and Herbert Coffin
attempting to impersonate solemn school-
masters, and trying to teach the natives
how to read and write as the pupils used
to do in Framingham.
When we arrived at Shanghai, the
next morning, there was a good deal of
excitement. Upon inquiring, I learned
that Mayor Robert Harrington was going
to pitch the first ball in a game between
a home team and one from Massachu-
setts. It sounded interesting, so I se-
cured a ticket. It was astonishing to see
how many players I recognized. There
was the most important man, Charles
Lockhart twater boyl, the big manly
pitcher, Robert Graham, right outfield
Walter Grace, and left out, Daniel Ille-
Carthy. The man standing behind the
pitcher, who sometimes agreed with the
runner when he called himself safe,
proved to be Joseph Blandin.
Then we left Shanghai for San Fran-
cisco. That distance was a little longer
than our previous flights, so we stopped at
the airdrome in mid-Pacific. This was in
charge of Franeis Patrztno with Brovelli
in the air service-free air service.
While lighting in the harbor of San
Francisco, we nearly knocked over a
small fishing boat in which we found John
Hill and Ralph Hicks, who were earning
their living as fish mongers, Hill because
there was better fishing than in Farm
Pond, and Hicks because he'd rather fish

I met was James O'Neil, who told me he

A little farther down the street was a
wedding, and I thought I'd just peek in
to see how pretty it was. Really it sur-
prised me. It seems that Richard Mont-
gomery's fraternal friendship with Betty
Button didn't turn out so fraternal. There
was Richard marching gaily up to the
altar with Betty under his arm, while
standing near the door, in tears and
dressed in black, was Betty Shaw.
Miniature golf was still among sports,
and as I passed one splendid eighteen-hole
course laid out on somebody's front
porch, I recognized f'Mifky,' Carr, the
caddy thereof. Not only was miniature
golf in style, but also miniature football.
I noticed one of these courses in some-
body's driveway where Salvi Pascufci and
Norman Hunter were coaching.
The following afternoon we moved on
to Hollywood, via Los Angeles, and as we
were dying quite low, I looked through
powerful glasses and could see automo-
biles racing along the road below. I was
watching carefully when I saw Al Polley
climb out of an old Austin and start push-
ing. Evidently he had learned that an
Austin pushes more easily than an old
We arrived at Los Angeles on the morn-
ing of the day we were to go on shore,
and with Captain Riley I hired a car to
drive out to Hollywood.
We had only just started when we saw
Roy Rendell sitting on his front stoop
teaching his children the art of "crack-
ingl' jokes without smiling.
Hollywood was a pleasant place indeed,
and we learned from Edward Martell,
who had risen as far as stage hand at one
of the studios, that Bob Woodward had
succeeded that great, dramatic actor Ben
Turpin. Moreover all the girls were now
admiring the successor to Buddy Rogers
That night, after returning to Los
Angeles, we listened to a concert given by
two outstanding musicians of the day:
one of the foremost opera stars, Sereno
Grelotti, and the violin genius who
showed Fritz Kreisler really how to play,
Stanley Slerzkoiefski. They were both ac-
companied by a well-known pianist,
The air liner in its round-the-world-
tour was to make one more stop, Boston.
However, Captain Riley kindly agreed
to leave me in Framingham. At the air-
port, I met my old friend Bill Heffernan,
now President of the Boy Scouts of
Massachusetts, who offered las I had
been away so longh to show me the entire
town. During the course of driving, he
told me that James Flett, Nathaniel Nash,
and Harold Anderson were just finishing
a post-graduate course at F. H. S.

ticed Bud Hill clipping trees to make

As we went through the middle of the
town, I beheld John Park, Chief of Police.
Furthermore, I learned he was doing
almost as well as Garrett had done.
XVe also passed the Chevrolet sales-
room, with Martin Fishman giving out
new cars to every fifth customer.
Coming back to the High School, I
recognized Bernard Porter, who was now
teaching Latin with the appreciated aid
of Margaret Cameron.
In front of the High School was a huge
skyscraper. On the front plate glass win-
dows was this inscription: "William Hast-
ings-Stock Broker." I knew Bill was
tall, but I didn't know he had ever aspired
to that height.

These were some of the interesting
facts which Bill Heffernan told me as we
started for my humble abode. During our
drive, the rain, which had started at the
beginning, was increasing every minute.
As we were nearing my driveway, the car
seemed to go faster and faster. Every-
thing blurred. A chill of fear made me
incapable of doing anything to stop the
speeding machine. Then all at once, the
heavens seemed to open, and it poured so
hard that everything was blotted out
except myself. I awoke to find my friends
of the card party dashing cold water on
Edward Cole, '31,
We, the dignified and exceptionally
intelligent Class of One Thousand Nine
Hundred and Thirty-One, of Framing-
ham High School, in the county of Mid-
dlesex, and the Commonwealth of Massa-
chusetts, being of extremely pensive
mind, do hereby deem it necessary to
make our last will and testament in order
that after our forthcoming non-extem-
poraneous departure our sole belongings,
and those articles which the members of
the Light Fingered Association found it
impossible to take possession of may not
become the legal property of our rightful
but nevertheless unscrupulous and un-
worthy heirs, the Junior Class.
First: This shrewd and cautious Class,
in order that no doubt may exist, leave to
the said Junior Class a weighty volume of
the rules, regulations, statutes, and laws
of said school, with a motto inscribed on
the cover, 'fIf what you are to be you are
now becoming, 'God save the Common-
wealth of Massachusetts' "
Second: We leave to the ninety-nine
and forty-four-one-hundreths per cent
pure, but mostly simple, Sophomore Class
our nonchalant way of telling our parents
that any mark not below D on our cards
must have been a mistake. This be-
queathal does not include the necessary
Third: To the Boys' Glee Club, in
order to show our appreciation of their
consideration of us during the spare
period, we bequeath several buildings,-
namely the South Boston Boiler Works,-
which we have purchased with our sur-
plus funds to be used for all rehearsals
and so-called concerts.
Fourth: To the faculty we leave an in-
telligence test for said Junior and Sopho-
more Classes from which the daily marks
for the entire year may be derived by
simple application of the theory of proba-
bilities. 1Note: these tests were especial-
ly prepared by Feinstein and Feinstein,
members of the American Undertakers'
Fifth: We leave to Miss Hemenway a
dictionary, composed of such words as
dirt, sfandal, hot, fast, speakeasy and
others in question of censorship, with the
01' H E CP H I L 0 M A T H Page Tzrelzfy-.fezlelz
hope that future wisecrackers-may not
have their articles cut in half because of
slight misunderstanding on the part of
Sixth: We bestow upon Mr. Barham a
black eye patch in order that he may im-
personate Floyd Gibbons and amuse the
American History class when the dry
story of the Pilgrims crossing the Dela-
ware Desert into Coburnville is taken up.
Seventh: To Mr. Magoon this thought-
ful class leaves several of its members
who found it impossible to graduate be-
cause they were forced to spend a good
part of their time in said Mr. Magoonls
office on account of reasons best known to
the flies on the walls of said office, if any.
Eighth: To Messrs. B. Scanlon and J.
Cashman we leave a special set of tools
and a large quantity of extra long spikes
for the purpose of quickly repairing seats
dislodged by the "I am strong men" l?J
such as Kinson, and also to them we leave
our deep regret for the proposed addition,
assuring them it was through no fault of
ours that this extra floor space is to be
added, because we shall not profit by it in
Ninth: To our beloved and well-mean-
ing school orchestra we bequeath two new
marches, first, the photographer's song,
f'Smile, Darn Ya', Smile," second the
poison pen victim's song HPlease Don't
Talk About Us When We're Gone," in
the hope that they will perfect these as
well in the next ten years as they have
the good old standby in the last ten years.
Tenth: To the School Committee we
leave three pounds of grass seed and sev-
eral signs to be placed at advantageous
points about the school grounds bearing
the words, "Please Do Not Cross What
Is Left of Our Lawn." The signs will
serve as monuments for the dead seeds.
Eleventh: To Mr. Peterson we leave
one chrome steel safe, to be used for lock-
ing up his supply of pencils, for we feel
that his argument that these pencils are
absolutely no good for work other than
drawing is somewhat disputed by several
members of the said Light Fingered Asso-
Twelfth: To the Philomatlz we leave a
few uncollcrtablc bills with instructions
to collect the same if convenient and if
not convenient to collect them anyway in
the hope that no rubber checks will be
received for said bills on account of the
much scandal 1Note, see Miss Hemen-
way's dictionary, which would doubtless
The remainder of our last will and new
testament will be devoted to the be-
queathal of white elephants, et cetera, ad

low ranking schoolmates.

good friend Edith Wale my largest pair
of shoes, in the hope that she will not have
to dance with tears in her eyes due to
I, Gretchen Wyman, being supposedly
of thoughtful mind, for once, at least, do
bequeath a set of twelve wire puzzles to
my contemporary, Marjorie Long, in the
hope that she, in entertaining her many
boy friends, will make as good use of
them as I have.
I, Casy Blandin, being sound in body
more or less, do bequeath to Charlie Hall
my book on plagiarism, which I plagia-
rized from one of my friends of equally
I, Richard Montgomery, leave to my
incoming kid brother the sole rights for
squeaking the door of room 229, common-
ly known as 29, and also several other of
my schemes to plague the teachers.
I, Betty Button, leave my unquestioned
record of talking and whispering continu-
ously from 8:25 A.M. to 2:10 P.M. for
the three years I have been here to any
Page T11 wzfj-eltglit 41' H E CP H I L O M A T H
future student who might be capable of
approaching this record.
I, Al Polley, leave to any Maine-iac a
few hints on how to drive from Portland,
starting at 6:30 A.M. Monday and arriv-
ing in time for school the same day, and
also how to make up the two full nights
of lost sleep by the end of the fifth period.
I, St. Sleczkowski, leave to Vera Smith
my honored but frequently misspelled
name, in the hope that she will enjoy the
unique title which I am tired of keeping
in its original form because of the un-
artistic abbreviations given to it by my
illiterate and ignorant classmate Polley.
I, Nat Gilmore, leave to Philip Ander-
son my art of getting Mr. Barham to re-
peat a question, including a guarantee
that nine out of ten times it won't work.
I, Bill Robbins, leave the true friend-
ship of one whose esteem I hold exceed-
ingly high and that is none other than my
dear neighbor Harold Anderson to my in-
coming kid brother, in the hope that the
hinges of this true friendship will never
I, Peter Lembo, leave to Christy Shee-
hy my slight knowledge of philosophy, in
the hope that he may be able to think up
as many snappy comebacks to embar-
rassing questions as I have.
I, Warren Crockwell, leave to the Phys-
ics department several more parts of my
Ford. I found after donating the fiy-
wheel, a carburetor and two timers that
it ran so Well that I have finally decided
to give up my engine in the hope that
dear old Lizzie will run just as well up
hill as she does down.
I, Roger Clapp, bequeath to next year's
inhabitants of Room ZS all the parts of
the adding machine that are left, and
hope that they will treat the poor old
thing with due consideration and respect.
In witness, whereof, we the illustrious
Class of Nineteen Thirty-One, through
our crooked and unduly authorized attor-
ney, Wilhelm Bellmaus von Hastingsburg,
do set out hands, clean and otherwise,
affix our seal, and subscribe our signature
on this 17th day of june in the year of

sea of specialization. Some of us will go
to college for the first stage of this voy-
age, while others will enter some chosen
field of activity and begin the long and
difficult task of specializing in that branch
of industry. Whether we go to higher
institutions of learning or immediately
pursue our vocation, most of us will be
subjected to untold hardships and will be

all we have done has been worth the

fore us lies a vast expanse of water with
all its dangers and perils, beyond lies the
reward of achievement. In the many years
to come we may shift our course from
time to time, but we must not falter. Like
