Enter "Dot," the fairest young lady from Camb-
ridge. How we love her. Such a good listener,
. . . and Stylell That is our first impression.
Her striking hats are well worth watching, but we
wonder why she doesn't favor YVhite in her millinery.
Let us keep on wondering!! A school teacher? We
think not. Her everlasting good humor has not
been injured after the strenuous course on Normal
Hill. This being so we predict a short and pleasant
career in her profession. Beyond that we know
WINIF RED ARCHBALD.
We are all very glad that Winifred has been with
us for the past two years. She is one of the most
popular girls in the school and is known to everyone
as "Winnie" 'fDivision A" sadly misses W'inifred
when she is absent especially on Mondays, as Wini-
fred is the most musical in that division and furnishes
the music. She is a fine athlete as well as a Hne
Judging from the daily letters, we wonder just
how Carolyn intends to apply her knowledge of
Household Arts. If you want to arise early f?l in
the morning, ask her to call you. She proved her
efficiency in teaching the latest steps in dancing,
during the weeks preceding "The liflan Dance."
When Carolyn is not dancing, she is usually singing.
Evelyn is a very "little" girl? fDo I mean
little?l who just delights in taking the attendance
for her flock. Her executive ability is one of her
marked characteristics and it is certainly doubtful
if she will ever have any trouble with discipline.
Her only fault is that she exercises he1' talents to
such an extent that she puts the rest of us 'fquite
in the shade."
GLENNA E. AYER.
Glenna is a little girl who can impersonate certain
people to perfection. She can do it so well that you
can hardly tell the difference between the real and
the imitation. Glen is the girl who can so ably
conduct classes in Pie from 9.30 to 10.00, for she
can control anything but her own feet, head and
hands. Is she ever serious? Uh, yes, to all outward
appearances, but appearances are often deceiving
Let me introduce you to lVIiss Ivanetta Bacon
from Nobscot. The teachers complain about her
mumbling words but W- finds no difficulty in
understanding her. Ivanetta is known to the girls
as "Hickory" or "Iva", Ivanetta is one of the
artists in the Senior B. Class. To say she is one of
our very promising teachers is putting it mildly.
Many cold winter days Iva trudgcd her weary way
over to N. Sudbury to enlighten the minds of the
coming farmers of lVIassachusetts. iVe shall all
miss Iva next year.

At first sight, Alice gives the impression of being
reserved and sedate. How impressions change!
Now, we all know that Alice is as full of fun and
mischief as the best of us. How convenient, still,
is that reserve! It hides a multitude of sins, anyway.
The first two years here, Alice was content to remain
in Framingham week after week but this year it's
quite different. Frequent trips to Boston with
quite a visit in New York make us wonder. You
have given us many hours of pleasure with your
music, Alice, and we give you the credit of keeping
away the f'blues" with it.
Third Hoor Crocker says, "If you want to know
who's boss around here, start something!" Lillian
is a good boss and can make things go. As a leader
of Smoke Talks she ean't be beaten and every mem-
ber joins in giving her a great, big vote of thanks.
She comes from way down in VValtham - such a.
long way off - and we are all sure it is some place.
Now for a little fqffy Lil- You're as fair as the
flower you are named for.
How shall we tell what scarcely anyone knows?
We've watched her go and come, among us, but we
can only guess what lies beneath the calm and steady
gaze of her big gray eyes, for this modest little girl
is more fond of listening, than of talking. How-
ever, this much we do know, that she is patient and
persistent in her work, and that her courage is not
to be daunted by any proposition, however hard.
Maude is not always meditating either, for we often
see a merry twinkle in her eyes. There is hardly
need for us to wish our Maude success in life for
Dame Fortune never neglects a constant one.
Wie all know May "has a lot of 'pep' and is en-
thusiastic," so perhaps that is why she is so fond of
parties, also f'movies," but we need never worry as
she is always in good company. Never mind May
even if he is small now, he mighf grow up - "Now
don't laugh, he will grow up" before you're pen-
sioned off. We are all wondering why it is that May
is so very anxious to teach in N- but it might not
be very long before we all know.
"Be purity of life the test -
Leave to the heart, to heaven, the rest."
Charlotte hails from Waltham and although she
is seldom heard we must "watch her!"
FLORENCE L. BEMIS.
Spencer is the place Florence represents. Yes,
she is tall and stately and can make her room-mate
behave fairly well. She is the girl with the com-
manding personality who can always be depended
upon to take charge of 'fthis" or "that" committee.
Florence always seems to "hold the key" to so many
good times, for many happy days have her class-
mates spent at Lake Lashaway.
Lillian is a tall, fair-haired girl who just loves to
get things done. From the minute she arrives in
the morning until she leaves at night for that nearby
little town in the WVest, she is a-hustling about.
Lillian thinks it a great pleasure to live in Fayville,
because there are "no men around, only hens" and
it is near the woods: so we found out in Household
BLANCHE S. BRENNENSTUI-II..
Bunch! Wfhere did she get the nickname? It
doesn't seem to Ht her just now according to some
members of the class. We often wonder what she
is going to do during the next few summer vaca-
tions. Will it be "down Maine."? It would be
pleasant if there were some "camp boys" around.
Some people are innocent and look it, others are
innocent and do not look it: and still others look

We have all seen Marion Brooks straining the
seams in her gym suit, but who ever saw her stoop-
ing to a mean act?
Whoops my dear! who loosed the Krupp in this
Calm yourself! That is only a volley fballl f1'om
Brooks' left wing.
A musical sneezer, always there with a laugh,
strong on the eats, and a good sport.
And still they come. VVho? VVhy the girls from
Natick, of whom Mary is one of the jolliest. This
young lady doesn't believe in being seen and not
heard. Her musical voice resounds everywhere.
We are always entertained by Mzi1'y who adds zest
to every class. One of her pet fancies, is to give
her dearest friends a Dutch run every noon hour
and a second, is to be a star player on the volley ball
team. I think Mary missed her calling, she ought to
be a comedian instead of a school teacher, but tl1e11
it's not for long.
Helen Burns is another one of the Natickites.
She is one of our jolliest girls and possesses dimples
and fuzzy golden locks that are the envy of her
classmates. Helen has a keen sense of humour and
one of her favorite gymnastic exercises during
English period is, "Shoulders - shake!" She is one
of our "strong" girls and delights in giving the light-
weights a jitney ride down the lower corridor after
lunch hour. Last summer Helen had charge of
playground work where, no doubt, she acquired this
muscular energy. She is the energetic and enthusi-
astic Business hlanager of our Class Book and made
a specialty of convincing you that you really wanted
an advertisement in the book.
Another girl from Natick must. be introduced,
Josephine Buckley. Natick can indeed be p1'oud of
sending such a girl as Jo to Framingham. She is
the secretary of our class which in itself says that
she is loved and honored by all. In drawing she is
the shining star and the rest of her division follow on
like the wise men who followed the star in the
heavens. Not one morning does she forget to say
"Good-morning" with her Sallie sweet smile. She
is one of our very promising teachers, but as they
say bankers must be quick and active I am afraid
Jo will not get her pension.
"Joe" is another one of our members, who hails
from Natick. She is very quiet, unless appearances
are deceitful, which goes to show that there are some
people of that type in Natick. Joe is fond of danc-
ing, although she says she doesn't do much of it.
You see she is real modest about her accomplish-
ments. Josephine is a studious girl and somewhat
of a poet. Lucky the man who gets an experienced
housekeeper! VVe all love herg it ean't be helped.
hlary is a quiet, retiring little girl, whose manner
is so well liked by certain members of the faculty.
Her specialty during the Junior year was Gym.
If you desire lecture notes verbatum go to Mary,
for she will be sure to have them. She is very fond
of first floor Crocker but wanders off once a week to
the wilds of Chelmsford. If you have an extra tooth
brush in your possession at the end of this year,
beware! as Mary is hard on the trail of her lost one.

ELEA NOR CHAPMAN
"Chappie" is one of the most popular girls in the
Senior Class. She has a dandy disposition and dur-
ing the two years at Normal School we have never
once seen her cross. YVhen she meets us girls we are
always greeted either with "Good-morning, girls" or
"Kiss Eleanor," the latter showing how affectionate
Eleanor really is. She made a fine bahy at the baby
party and a dandy lN'Irs. Ruggles in the Senior C
Christmas play and we all know she will make a first
class teacher. She thinks men are a nuisance be-
cause they take up so much time, but nevertheless
we noticed she didn't have any trouble in getting
one for the Senior Prom. Eleanor was elected Class
Historian which shows how much we girls like her
and how much we think she is capable of doing.
During our Senior year she has been the whole
life of the C. division and many times when the girls
were discouraged she has cheered them up with
"Oh, don't worry. It might be worse," which was
the truth if we had only stopped to think.
Eleanor is certainly the "chappie" for us and her
advise to all the girls might be, "Look pleasant even
if it hurts."
Ethel has always held down the dignity of our
class, but underneath her sedateness we have found
a most fun loving girl. She was one of the stars in
our drawing class, although she never disappointed
the teachers in any lesson. She was always ready to
help others and with her quiet disposition proved to
be an ideal class-mate.
All hail our representative from Medfieldl We
sometimes wonder if all the girls in Medfield are as
quiet as hlarion. Yet with all her quietness, she
has a sunny disposition and was every ready to help
a friend in need.
"Molly Cotton-tail" - did you call that dignified
looking young lady - a school ma'am-to-be at that.
Hut wait until you see those eyes. They can look
seriously at you on occasion, but did you get that
flirtatious look in them? Molly's week-end visits
at home consist of short calls on her folks and the
rest of the time is devoted to entertaining the long
line of callers that come. Jewelers Friday night, a.
real man Saturday night, and I have heard of a
young minister on Sunday night. But for real facts
you will have to go to Molly herself. This much
we do know. She is a good friend to have and we
don't blame them for flocking around.
How we will all miss her, our merry maid from
Northboro. She is always ready to join us and give
a demonstration of a first class minstrel show. She
puts away her wit and becomes real serious when
confronted by a "special topic." We hope she isn't
foo serious when some "specials" come to see her,
else she will be back to F. N. S. for the H. A. Course.
VV e have to hand it to Alma Mater Cranberry when
it comes to singing. Don't make a specialty of it,
because "Music Hath its Charms." To say we will
miss her is putting it much too mildly.
It was in the fall of 1913 that Baby Hazel left
the sunny shores of Lake Quinsigamond and started
forth to learn the arts of cooking, so that when she
really grew up she might be a great help and also
"pride and joy" of her family. Most of her time
the first year was divided between writing letters
and eating. The latter was emphasized when,
starting out for the Post Office at dinner time, she
was told that she could have none on her return.
Little did this thought trouble Hay for she had
just received a weekly supply of eatables. During
Hazel's second year the trolley ride to Newton
became very attractive as did also canoeing on the
Charles. If by any mistake she dained to spend a
Iliramintgljurn Nnrmal Srhnnl
week-end in "Angels' Loft" her presence was made
known on all sides, especially below, by original
orchestras and Indian Tatoos. It is really a great
misfortune that F. N. S. and VVoreester are not
nearer the Berkshires because there are beautiful
rides to take among them. It will be with great
pleasures that we recall the many parodies that
Hazel has made to brighten what might have proved
"Crooksie" doesn't believe in being experimented
upon in House Practice, but we should think she
would like the experiment especially when we see

LAURA P. DAVIS.
Laura is our optimist! lVho ever saw her when
she was sorrowful or dejected? Xve would as soon
expect to see the Man in the hloon walking on as to
see "Silent Laura" disconsolate. Room 17, Crocker
Hall, Laura's home from Sunday evening to Friday
afternoon, tho' small, often shelters 'fthe gang"
when there's anything of interest to talk about or a
story to be read. Then Laura is always blamed for
the noise. It isn't fair, is it Laura?
LOUISE T. DAVIS.
VVhen any mischief is done, or any noise is made
in Crocker Hall, the Davises a1'e blamed. 'Wvhich
one?" "Louise?" 'fNol" That's the trouble. Louise
never does anything: - at least, no one ever caught
her in mischief. Ask l1er how she used to like Mon-
day afternoons in Chemistry laboratory during
Middle Junior year and see what she says. Then
ask her how she liked Tuesday afternoons there
during Senior year. Louise's chief duty in life is
answering letters. No wonder she has to write so
many letters to New York! She's going to enter
Bellevue Hospital in the near future.
Lillian is reserved in manner, never saying much,
and never bothering anyone, but always willing to
help a person when in need. One of her very fine
characteristics, is that she is always on time, and
therefore always to be depended upon. Her atti-
tude in the Practice School showed that she has
not missed her vocation. She walked around the
building just as though she was principal of the
place, instead of a submissive training teacher. It
must be that she must know that it takes initiative
to get along in this world.
MADELINE E. DONLON.
Who is the best natured girl in Crocker Hall?
Why Madeline Donlon, of course. She always
greets us with that same bright smile. Madeline is
one of the Inseparables for if you see her, either Peg,
Helen or Hazel is sure to be near. But in regard to
tl1e men of course there is no special one, for she just
likes them all.
There is a little girl, a very little girl,
In our class at Normal School,
And she can do a solo dance, just one great whirl,
If when you ask she's in the mood:
She's just plumb full of life, for one so very slight,
And though you'd never guess 'twas so

Still, and still, and still,
The wonder grew,
That one small head could carry
All that she knew.
How often have we heard it quoted from one of
our class rooms that "good things are done up in
small packages." And that is true when applied to
Sue. She may not say a lot when the rabbling crowd
is doing so much talking. But give her a chance and
listen to the real truths that she has stored up in
her gray matter. From counting the bacteria in a
petri dish to preparing a bottle of modified milk
you'll have to hand it to Susie every time.
It is hardly necessary to introduce Miss Beatrice
Duggan, for her fame is well established. Is it any
wonder with her sparkling brown eyes and laughing
voice? Do not fail to make her acquaintance if you
are seeking an opponent for a debate.
This valuable member of our class attended
cooking classes at F. N. long before any of the
rest of us, and possibly that accounts for her feeling
perfectly at home within its walls. VVho has not
envied her the privilige of running home any time
of day or week without beginning weeks before to
petition various authorities for a little breathing
space? Blanche did not come to live with us until
her third year, but we long before recognized her
worth, when we chose her Class President for our
Bliddle Junior year. " 'Twan't" her fault that she
wasn't built differently: nobody ever accused her of
being thin! Blanche has kindly offered to furnish
lilies-of-the-valley to all who feel they have par-
ticular need of them, providing they don't take her
hlary is a quiet, gentle girl who believes in being
seen but not heard. Although we only see Mary on
and off, because of her ill health, we are always glad
to see her. She never goes to class without her work
done neatly and she is always willing to help a. friend
MARIAN A. EVANS.
ltlarian comes from the th1'iving metropolis of
Cliftondale. But what we most desire to know is
just what the attraction in Boston is, for she seems
to go almost every week-end. Yvhy, she can even
get off when she is a cook, but just how she does it
is a mystery to most of us.
JULIA M. H. FANNING.
Julia! Is there anyone who will not agree that
Julia is one of the best sports in the class, and game
for anything? She came from such a large place that
she marvelled at the size and population of Framing-
ham Centre, but has become accustomed to it at
last. When she landed here, she was quiet and
unassumingg but when she got the name of being a
Hcut up" in Crocker Hall, she decided she might as
well have the name as the game, so she is one of the
'fthird floor gang."
Polly didn't know herself on that eventful morn-
ing when she made her debut into Framingham
Society, or else it was her bashful f?l nature which
kept her from answering to a repeated call from the
platform of "Myra Fernald!" We have had no
difficulty in locating her since, however, as she be-
lieves in exercising her lungs daily - we might say
hourly. Polly's rich contralto voice, whether it be
at church, some school festivity or Crocker Hall
always affords a great deal of pleasure to those who
a1'e privileged to hear it. Don't ask her to sing right
after dinner, tho, as Polly does her duty by her daily
bread. Ask her if she has learned the value of two

LEAH MARIE FULTON.
"I am a part of everyone I meet."
This dear little girl from Viiaverley is one whom
any girl would be proud to call friend. She is a
persistent worker, ever anxious to have her lesson
done the very best and ever afraid that it would not
be done just right. "Lee" has very decided opin-
ions of her own in regards to teaching and it would
take some arguing to make her change these
opinions. Her stick-to-it-ness of character surely
ought to bring her success. She is a part of every-
one she meets, fo1' to know her is to love her.
Leah is the true blond of our class. VVith long
golden hair, blue eyes and pink cheeks, surely no
other girl can take this honor away from her. Leah
Marie, we all shall miss you when we have left our
Normal Hillg but can't we still be friends? Here's
love and success to you.
HAZEL P. GATES.
She is a tall and dignified maid, and a good sport
too. No matter what comes along, Hazel is always
ready to help you out. Last Memorial Day vaca-
tion she spent in Ayer and somehow since then
things haven't been the same with her. I wonder
just what is the matter.
Let me present to you another "Natiekite."
Already, we have six "Nath-kites" here, but there is
no one more pleasant and well liked than Emma
Gilbert. Emma because of her black hair and black
eyes, together with her name is thought to be French
But she has deceived you all for she is part English,
though she does lack the flaxen hair and blue eyes
of that race. Strange it is that English women are
supposed to be reserved, but there is no one with
more life to them than Emma. She is always ready
with a smile and a cheery word for her classmates,
and we all appreciate her good-will in helping her
classmates. VVe are sure, Emma will be remembered
by all her classmates, as a jolly, good-natured girl.
Trying to live down a name given you by very
uncomplimentary classmates is not always so suc-
cessful in real life as it is in stories, as Little Miss
Gaskill has probably found from actual experience.
At sometime or other, during her brief career of two
years among us, Marie has won for herself the most
undignified name of "Baby1" but I sincerely hope
that this title fwhich refers presumably to size and
not personalityl will have a very short life.
"For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these:
'It might have been' " - something else.
VVe hail our Newton representative now. To see
Marguerite at her best we must go to the gymnasium
for here she certainly excells. VVe may wonder why
she didn't follow this type of work but those who
know her realize that she was too much interested
in surveying hence, struck a happy medium. In
spite of this we all realize that Marguerite will
certainly make a very fine teacher. During her
two yea1's at F . N. S., she became very popular
making many friends. Although her lessons were
5Hra111i11gImm Nnrmal Svrhnnl
always prepared, she had time for other things such
as clothes, dances, and parties. 'We say good-bye
to her with heavy hearts and wish her the best of
success in the future.
Ive always know when ltlarion arrives on the
scene in the morning, l1er favorite Salutation being,
"YYhat have you done for today, girls?" Marion's
highest amibtion is to become a first class school
teacher. f?l Already she is inquiring what the
pension age is. Her only dissipation is an occasional
evening at the movies, otherwise she leads a quiet
life in the big city of Marlboro.
Though extremely shy when first she came to
Framingham, she has become so daring as to make
frequent visits all alone to Worcester to keep ap-
pointments with the Dentist and Oculist there.
No one knows Anna Hammond, least of all tl1e
VVhat's in a name? Reeny has decided there is a
great deal in living up to it. After twenty odd years
of uneeasing energy in this direction, she has decided
to live in peace and quiet the rest of her days under
a different. title: -hence, the brilliant love band
encircling the fatal finger. This will not be an
entirely new experience for her, however, as she has
always had "mail" of her own. Have you ever
noticed who it was that intuitively turned toward
the door on Thursday nights at the sound of a bell
in the hall? We wonder if Reeny's closet is as ex-
tended as her wardrobe? Irene "aims" to begin
keeping a budget soon, and while we all wish her
success, we hope and pray that she won't publish
more than one month's accounts in any book,
liable to find its way to F. N. S.
Wlhere is Helen? Gone to Chelmsford - or
going. Her calls to visit this little town are out-
numbered only by her trips to the movies. It is
11ice to have a reporter to supply the incidents that
took place between last week's performance and
next. If Satan finds work for only idle hands to do,
then this young lady will never be tempted, as her
busy fingers are forever plying the needle in some-
thing new. Helen's feet are not very slow either,
when one casually f?l mentions the presence of a
"wee, sleckit, cow'rin,' tim'rous beastief' Tho
Helen has traveled many a mile in search of happi-
ness f?l, she will never find truer friends than those
she made at F. N. S.
Mary, a. quite modest young lady will be remem-
bered among us as a ray of sunshine on a dark day.
She was very conciliatory and agreeable among us
It is a great gift, this of conciliating instead of
opposing, of never showing any rough edges or
sharp angles, and going on in the daily routine, with
gentleness and without disturbance. "To know her
was to love her and love her forever."
Evelyn is another one of the brilliant Natiekites.
She always knows her lessons, but never finds it
necessary to study which greatly puzzles the less
gifted members of her class who have to toil many
hours to accomplish the same result.
Evelyn is very fond of making speeches and
always believes in filling in the pauses with her
favorite "amd" sometimes using as many as thirty
in one speech. This enables her to collect her
thoughts and then she proceeds with her discussion.
She is an ardent worker for the Campfire Girls
and has never been known to have a grouch.
Zliranlingham Nnrmal ,Svrhnnl
It always has bee11 a puzzle to us why "Hottie"
came to F.N.S., instead of going to some musical
school. She sre'n1.s- to be very fond of singing, tDid
you say singing?l as is shown by the "sweet sounds"
that issue forth during study hours and we wonder
why she isn't studying. Her other hobbie is laugh-
ing, which we think she will outgrow some day.
If all the little western girls are as quiet and
demure as Ada it must be a very proper place.
This charming maiden was always a faithful student
and if you ever wanted to know the home lesson
all you l1ad to do was to ask Ada. She always knew
"Come on: let's do something." VVho isn't glad
to hear that call coming from Room 7? VVhen
Evelyn feels in that mood you want to be on hand
for a good time for she is the one that can start the
best kind of things. On one occasion it did prove a
little disastrous when she took seven girls home to
Sunday night supper leaving the cooks at Crocker
with an extra. supply of food on their hands. But
the guilty flock faced the music on their return with
heads held high and voted Evelyn's the place for an
all-round good time.
Behold our class blutfer, Anna Kelly! Although
Anna holds that doubtful position, may she be
paeified with the thought that only the brightest of
people can keep it up. You may not believe it,
but if you go into Anna's room during any study
hour, you will surely find her studying some sort
of book. Anna is one of our "littlest" girls, but,
as Mr. Meier says, "The best things come done up
in small packages."
lfVe shall all miss Anna., with her cheery laugh,
and although Anna insists that she is a "school
mann" for life, can anyone tell us why she takes the
Boston ear for home every Friday afternoon?
MABEL KEN NEY.
Mabel is a very demure little damsel from Mil-
ford. Wlhenever you see her she is busy doing
penmanship drills and as a penman she excells us
all. Her motto is "write but don't talk," and she
generally lives up to it. Wfhile the rest. of us laugh
and joke Mabel works - on penmanship.
She went out to practice school with the A Seniors
and scored another point there. ltlabel thinks she
will like teaching - we sincerely hope she will.
We will miss seeing her run for hcr Milford car
and are glad that they so considerately wait for her
-f usually. Look out Mabel f don't plan to catch
everything on the Hy. You might miss it. Never-
theless, good luck.
"Darn will certainly make a. fine teacher because
she has the charm for enchanting people. tVe all
wonde1'ed how she got her bugs for Mr. Meier so
quickly but if we knew Dar had interests on the
farm we would have her get ours also. But you
know still water runs deep.
How often have we heard Georgie begin an argu-
ment with members of the faculty. She does not
intend to be unpleasant when asking questions, but
has sometimes been considered so. Her favorite
haunt is North Chelmsford. How to spend her
summer vacation was easily solved last year, as she
came back to Framingham and joined the forces of
the famous "Canning Club" in Normal Hall kitchen.
Allow me to introduce to you "Silk Stocking I."
Wie are quite undecided whether or not. they sell
cotton hose in N. Grafton, but if we take Irene for
a fair example our decision will be negative. One of

Irene's favorite pastimes is social dancing and any-
one may see hcr fox-trotting up and down the lower
corridor every noon. No matter how many lessons
were to be prepared, Irene always spent most of her
time preparing education.
"S'link" does not waste her time prinking to
gain admiring glances from the opposite sex, but
it was noticed that some time preceding "The Man
Dance," that she ceased to partake of butter, be-
cause she thought it was bad for her complexion.
Edith believes in the motto of "Laugh and Grow
Fat," for many a time is heard l1er contagious "tee
hee." Her hair is natural, damp weather brings the
curl out. For a. good laugh, hunt up Eidth. We
shall miss her when she is at Baltimore, learning
how to prepare dishes to tempt the sick.
Ada's favorite WJ occupation is making raflia
baskets, in fact, she had rather do that than teach
school. Many a time does she entertain us in spare
moments by her musical accomplishments. Looks
are deceiving, for Ada is quite a dreamer.
Claire comes to us from Chicopee Falls, and a
loyal supporter is she. Our "corridor invalid" is a

Along came Marguerite Mason from Medfield,
most commonly known as "Peggy." Her am-
bitions seem to run along theological lines, and we
are wondering if she will make a good minister's
wife, for how can jolly, sport loving Peggy settle
down to Sewing circles and long prayers.
Estelle is well known for her dramatic ability and
her fondness for "gym." She did not enter Normal
until October, 1915, but is now making up the lost
time as she finds traveling on the early car from
Hopkinton very attractive.
g MARY MCLAUGHLIN.
Major is one of these quiet girls who find it hard
to talk- in class. The first few years of her life
she grew by feet but now she has settled down to
inches. And color! Never mind as long as it is
natural for, "Art may err, but Nature cannot miss."
UNessie" is another one of the Brighton girls.
YVhen she arrives on the scene her beaming smile
and ready sympathy always cheers her classmates.
One thing that puzzles us however is why Nessy
waits for the 5.20 train every evening.
ET HEL MOORE.
The most perplexing question concerning Ethel
is, "Where did she come from?" The answer is
vague enough - "Ware, Ware !" We are assured,
however, that she can trace her younger days back
to Springfield, so that leaves her a little better off
than the "man without a country." "Now, in
regard to" any information you wish about the
school, its students, past, present or future, or, in
fact, most anything worth while mentioning since
Ethel opened her big brown eyes to this world's
happenings, inquire of this everlasting information
bureau. Although one of our youngest, her com-
bined knowledge and size warranted her the com-
mand of High School classes. Here's hoping Ethel
will find herself permanently located 'ere long in her
always beloved Sprinkfield.

Enter "Monty" a living picture of 'Keyes straight
ahead and head held high." She was our Senior
representative on the debating team and easily
showed her power in public speaking. Natick is the
home of this progressive lass and some day we all
hope to be proud of her, because she is the sort that
will succeed no matter what she attempts. She has
the brains and stick-to-it-iveness that go to make
up a successful teacher and will make good in the
Johniels frequent bulletins from the University
of Illinois would indicate that a position in the
middle west would be acceptable. Her mother
would probably enjoy better health, if this comes to
pass. For a good time, Johnie's always with you.
We are very glad to have had among our class-
mates, this quiet thoughtful young lady. One needs
to know her intimately to realize the finer qualities
within her. Her spirit of generosity knows no limit
for she is always ready to help her friends. Her
gentle Voice and sweet smile hide the mighty fortress
which is beneath that part of her character which the
world knows. There are very great possibilities
for her in Life because she has:
"Good Sense, which is only the gift of Heaven,
And though no Science, fairly worth the seven."
Bessie O'Leary? Oh, yes! that little girl from
Framingham Junction, Bess is "behind the times"
in just one respect: she prefers "Shay's" to auto-
mobiles and flying machines. She is always seen
before she's heard and is quite famous for her good-
nature. Like all sympathetic people, Bessie is
forced to listen to all the girls' woes and practices
mental gymnastics trying to think up something
appropriate to say. Bessie is worried as to how she
can spend her pension she expects to receive, after
she has been in the teaching profession thirty years.
I am glad to present to you Miriam Poole from
the sleepy little village of Auburndale. Miriam is
by nature very reserved, but when you are well
acquainted with her, you will find her a very jolly
companion. She is quite talented along the line
of drawing, and many of us wish we had her ability.
One of Miriam's favorite past-times is observing
baseball games. She considers it a most exciting
"You're out if you don't get there, aren't you?"
Elaine was always ready with her cheery smile,
encouraging words and a helping hand, wherever
needed. She always reminded me of the saying,
"A friend in need is a friend indeed." She was by
no means the brightest student in her class, but it
would be hard to find a more conscientious, or more
When once Elaine stood on her feet in class and
began to talk, her classmates knew there would be
no opportunity for them, for Elaine has a great gift
of speech and when once started resembles a
Uwound up clock."
One of her characteristics is her strong minded-
ness. When once set on a thing it is like going
through fire to change her opinion. To make a
resume of her characteristics her classmates join
me in saying she is an "all round girl."

only in dictionaries where lN'Iildred is concerned.
The redeeining qualities that prevented us from
stamping her a grinld were her love of athletics and
dramatics. She was an ardent member of our volley
ball team and a firm believer in out-door sports.
In dramatics she was a star and when it came to
coaching an amateur production of Julius Caesar
for Miss Ireson's class, let it suffice to say we were
well coached and implicitly obeyed f?l the stern-
faced "Patten" Mildred is the sort of a girl that

Ethelyn is a very quiet girl indeed. The only
time you hear her is when she ishustling for that
late train. Never mind, you always get it, don't
you Ethelyn? Ethelyn usually passes away the
time for us at noon by playing the piano while we
dance. She will also make a fine penman if she
practices as much at home as she does in school.
Since Lillian has come to our school she has
grown to like it better and better. In her Senior
year she starred in dramatics, making a brilliant
Ceasar. VVe can also remember this, she always
came out from a conference with a smiling face
regardless of what went on behind the doors.
"Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is
of you." ,
Ralph II aldo Emerson.
Here we l1ave Elizabeth Petrie who hails from
Boston. She has a fondness for dancing and also for
going home over the week-end. Elizabeth enjoys
CH having callers over at the t'dorm," and we dis-
tinctly remember going on parade one night. Never
mind, Elizabeth is a jolly girl and we enjoy hearing
her musical voice resound through the corridors.
During any spare time, you will be sure to find
'tHappy" in her room on third floor busy at work.
She does not notice the length of time, as the
"weeks" are so pleasantly spent. When not busy
she does like to sleep. It has been noticed that
Happy does not like to travel alone on the cars
especially on Sunday nights.
It was in Springfield that this auburn haired baby
called Marjorie was first discovered. She learned to
talk at an early age and has kept in practice ever
since. But there's wisdom in those words. If you
don't believe it drop into the lively practice school
class some time and find out for yourself. Marje
has developed a liking for Northborough and makes
frequent trips there to visit Caroline. But we
wonder if that is all she goes for.
And now we hail our Class Orator, Catherine
Quinn. We are very glad to have in our midst such
a finished and eloquent speaker, who is always ready
to entertain us with her pleasant voice and earnest
manner. Although Catherine could not be con-
sidered one of our class grinds, nevertheless she
always has her work neatly written in her note book.
I have seen Catherine terribly excited at times
looking for her precious note-book but don't worry
Catherine for it is always being carefully taken care
of by the HA" division in general. Yes! It is hard
to believe that such an earnest worker comes from
Natick, but it is true. She is one of Natick's many
Enter an emphatic man-hater but a great athlete
and our star pitcher. Who knows but what we will
have a representative in a big league some day.
Her only serious fault is that she exercises her
talents as 'farguingu to such an extent that she puts
the rest of us "quite in the shade."
Zliramingham Nnrmal Srhnnl
Grace Ranney was our only representative from
Wvayland and one who never could get to school
when it stormed, because it always takes three days
to get Wayland shoveled out. Grace was a thor-
ough and good student, she never skipped anything
but gave us full details in every recitation, and even
had personal experiences to use as illustrations.
Never mind, Grace will be ever patient when teach-
ing restless youngsters.
lVhose cheery voice and welcoming smile always
greeted people from Room 1 as they climbed Crocker
Hall stairway? Why Richie Richardson's of course?
It was she with her cordial way and eloquent
orations whom we got to make our pleas. Perhaps
it was that winning smile that got her through all
scrapes without a word, even study hour heard her
voice echoing through the corridors without re-
primand while her neighbors were cautioned to be
quiet. Crocker Hall missed her week-ends while
she went home to VVin-Chester.
Behold, the Editor-in-Chief of our Class Book!
Most any morning about 8.50 Corabel will be see11
running up the aisle in Assembly with a notice of a
meeting of that editorial staff. Poor Corabel, how
she worked for the success of the Class Book!
She was lucky always and in more ways than one,
even to getting her first assignment at home. She
used to entertain us noontimes by giving us piano
solos as well as teaching us the new steps after
Wednesday's dancing class, and was ever ready with
the "smile that won't come off."
But, Corabel, you will be missed the most in the
afternoon when your place in the station will be
vacant when it's time for the 3.30 train.

normal order and 'tis this same Shu Sha who helps
you out of your difficulties, for Ruth is the first one

Oh for a chocolate bar and some marshmallow
creme! Ive sometimes think that Nlarlborough
consists chiefly of these two forms of diet, and we
have sure proof that they are good. Besides this,
we might say that Alice has quite a mania for danc-
ing, -also the movies, -and we don't see when
she gets her work done, which, nevertheless, seems
to be always done. However this ability to mix
pleasure and work has led us to believe that she will
make a successful teacherg and she certainly
managed to "rake in" more money on the "sub"
work than any of the rest of A Division. But to
correct any wrong impression that might be given,
we add that we have our doubts as to how long Alice
HARRIETT E. SCOTT.
"Hattie," as one of her little friends calls her, is
well liked by everyone. She is very fond of music.
If you don't believe it, you should have lived at
Sears' last year. Quite a number of things have
happened to her since she has been in Framingham.
Rumor says that she will always be prepared for

not. Then, I understand she met a Squash Pie Man

wonder if it is true.
We have among us an author lately recognized
by the New York Tribune and the Boston Post.
Have you read any of her stories? You can read
Mary T. Sheehan right through them. Whenever
we think of our Mary we'll recall occasions when
our mirth burst forth uncontrolled at her humorous
.Ioyous in everything,
Happy and carefree,
Making merry always,
Though she busy be.

Oft doth make us worry,
When she to her bed doth go

t'Carol" did I hear you call her. Not as choirs
and birds carol maybe - with the voice - but with
all sorts of kinduesses. Would anyone ever say that
Caroline wasn't one of the best hearted girls in '16,
doing anything for anybody at anytime. Even the
Belgian soldiers will say so when they know that
Caroline "lent a hand" and knit them a sweater.
Betty was not meant to become a "school marm"
to begin with she is altogether too good looking,
besides that she has not a cross word in her vocabu-
lary. Her possibilities as a cook are rather slim for
not yet has she learned the diHerence between tea
and coffee. Nevertheless Betty is a wonder for she
is one of the few people who can wear blue because it
matches her eyes. Rumor has it that she spends her
Sunday nights to good advantage but be it far from
us to criticise.
Some day we are going to hear from Miriam.
Perhaps-she will finish discovering that new food
principle that Miss Nicholass talks about or per-
haps she will find a new method of dish washing for
one. It is almost certain that she will do some-
thing big when she graduates for she is the most
gifted individual in all our glorious class. She
opened our eyes to her depths of intelligence from
the day that she made the startling announcement
that tripe is a fish from off Cape Cod.
Just a fcw more weeks, dear people, until this girl
turns her knowledge on the world W- then we will
watch the papers - Don't disappoint us, Miriam.
DOROTHY B. STOCKIN.
This little brown-eyed girl appeared at F. N. S.,
from Watertown in 1913. How she was laughed at
that first year when she earnestly told us that
"tripe was a kind of fish." Now, as the best presi-
dent that a class ever had, it is almost impossible
to hunt her CI-Iunterl up when you want her, for it
takes a great deal of her time to keep her class-
mates in the good graces of the faculty.
Dutiful in all things,
Brave enough to say what's trueg
Kind to all and loyal, too.
M. T. is a Hopedale girl without any middle
name, much to her sorrow. She is just the girl to
start fun on third Hoor Crocker. When Marion T.

M. AGNES TIERNEY.
Agnes was one of our representatives from
Cambridge. Her principal attraction was her eyes
which were a wonderful blue. She was a good stu-
dent and always was fully prepared for every
1'ecitation. Although one of the best dancers and
earliest retirers in the New Dorm she still found
time to study. She made friends easily and was a
general favorite. Miss "Tiarney" is the sort of a
girl that is bound to succeed if hard work has any-
thing to do with it.
VVe all know how hard p0Ol' f'Tinky" has to
work. However, in spite of all her t.rials and
tribulations in the subject. they call "H. A." she
manages to find time to go to the big city. They
say she is Very much interested in hospital work.

standard of Household Arts. Too bad your career
may be blown over by a f'Gale."
Have you ever heard that good goods come in
small parcels? Marion Turner proves that state-
ment. Do you remember how as Juniors we were
overcome by her familiarity with all possible
garden flowers? That was really her first public
appearance. VVe may say of her she was an earnest,
conscientious student and a cheerful classmate.
There is no better way to know Eva than to steal
quietly int.o the study hall. There you will find her
bending over her desk absorbed in work oblivious
to the chatter on all sides of her. Yvhether it is a
page of problems or a drawing land Eva is certainly
quite an artistl you may be sure she is working at
her level best. Her happy disposition has made her
dear to those who know her, and we will be sorry to
If a body meet Miss lvattie,

"When will my dreams come true, love."
Although the name of Blanche is rather common
in our class, this little girl is by no means a common
one. "Dreamer," she is sometimes called, but who
of us would dare venture a guess as to what those
dreams are? One is quite evident, however, from the
fact that Blanche started "trunking" with her
graduation outfit. VVe never know exactly what to
expect from such a "regular cut-up," it is even on
record that she once stayed out very, very late when
on a sleigh-ride. Did you ever hear Blanche lead a
C. E. meeting? The Chemistry profession will lack
a valuable advocate if Blanche deserts it, but we
think perhaps that business letter may have some-
thing to do with her future career.
Marion is tall and the only time she is not grace-
ful is when she combs her hair. We used to under-
stand her but it is different now since she has ac-
quired a liking for Chemistry - Organic too - Of
iranninglmnt Nnrrnal Srhnnl
course we don't know but it is believed that it was
some outside influence that did it. She made one
mistake in her life, that was when she did not go to
a l'niversity of Muse-ic, if you ever heard her render
"Silver Threads Among the Gold" you would be
convinced. Besides her troubles at Framingham
she has had to live down the terrible handicap of
coming from Hingham, she is a remarkable girl,
nevertheless, and we are proud of her.
Enter our worthy classmate from Waltham. A
perfect school teacher, glasses and all, but once she
discards her spectacles, you would not think for a
moment that it is the same Edith, for that is the
fair damsel's name. She is a staunch follower of the
"sutfragettes" for the moment that your eye strikes
her room, you are blinded by her yellow doll with
large black letters "Votes for lYomen." A good
topic for conversation with Miss Edith is "Nelson,"
or "Varieties of Reed." We are not going to leave
out that Edith is very charming and good-hearted.
Peggie is a thoroughly sensible girl. After staying
a short time at Holyoke she discovered her mistake
and came to Framingham. She has been through
the three years in this same sensible manner, always
taking things calmly never getting fussed or upset.
She never gets up i11 the morning until it is abso-
lutely necessary. On your way to breakfast you
meet her in the hall in her "nightie" and kimona - a
few minutes later when you enter the dining room
there sits Peggie calm and serene. We don't know
very much about her family except that she has a
cousin. In spite of her talents she is in doubt as to
the future and says "Land knows" what she will do
'Tm always dreaming,
Dreaming, love, of you."
Here is one Dottie by name, who is apt to be lost
to the profession of teaching almost any day.
Dottie would much rather gaze dreamily into space
than eat- soup for instance. VVhere does she go
so often for week-ends? It ean't be, when she goes
to the lVood's, that she is listening for a Dickie
bird! Why those frequent visits to the little booth
under the stairs, Dottie? This little girl doesn't
believe in doing things ahead of time. Better late
than never, Dottie, especially when it comes to
making reed baskets. We all join in wishing this
chubby, rosy-cheeked little miss the greatest joy
that GVGI' comes to any woman.
HISTORY OF H. A. CLASS OF 1916
September, 1913, and the gods looked down'
smilingly upon 84 eager H. A. Juniors wending
their way up Normal hill.
Soon we were deep in the mysteries of many new
studies. Now we were standing with our heads
way back gazing up at the piping system: again we
were sitting on high stools wondering what hap-
pened to iron nippers when heated.
So worried and frightened did we look that the
Seniors took pity on us. Therefore one evening we
found ourselves in the gymnasium where we learned
to say "boots without the shoes."
Though this party may have changed our out-
ward appearance, it could not alleviate the fright-
ened feeling. Who, we wish to know, did not
tremble when entering certain classrooms and
Almost immediately we were introduced to
X. P. K., through the teas which the Middle
Juniors gave us.
We began to feel ourselves a part of the school
when we finally organized. Alice Burns was chosen
to be president and Marion Rowley secretary and
One morning the faculty reception to the Juniors
was announced. Such excitement as this brought
forth. Many questions now arose asz- "Is it a
'swell' affair?" "Formal?" "lfVhat shall we wear?"
Mid years came on apace! What are reports?
We found them to be worry incubators, brow
creasers, and heart breakers. The breaks were some
small, some large depending upon whether the
marks were F-I-, F, or F-.
Many of our members joined either Glee Club,
Orchestra, or Dramatic Club. We all had fine
times. Who, for instance, can forget the fun we
had at the joint Glee Club Concert at Salem?
Amid such pleasures our Junior year slipped
Middle Juniors, at last, and we felt and acted
just the same as ever-no better, we fear, - no
worse, - we hope.
VVe needed someone to guide us so elected Blanche
Eames to be our president and Eleanor Stockin to
be secretary and treasurer. However, as Eleanor
decided to leave us and be a Melba we chose Harriet
Scott to take her place.
Now a new duty, in the form of X. P. K., fell
upon our capable shoulders. Dorothy Stockin was
president and Lillian Barker treasurer. Many
happy hours we spent there having teas and trying
in vain to keep the little place clean.
Along with X. P. K., came a greater problem -
ORGANIC!! How many of us escaped such dreams
as the following after an evenings study of the
aforenamed subject? The dream: - Suddenly a
rude hand descended and I was thrown into prison.
There I was fastened by means of closed rings and
open chains, to a jailer who looked wry familiar.
The great event of our Middle Junior year was
our drama. "The Twig of Thorn" certainly was a
The new dormitory was opened for the Hrst time
when the Seniors had their June dance there.
The last day of school all of us were busy setting
up our chemistry exhibits. Through these exhibits
we hoped to reach the "poor, dear, innocent public."
Do you suppose we succeeded at all?
Seniors at last! Did anyone feel as "big" as she
thought she would when a Senior.
Some of us were chosen to be school "marms" and
we set out with fluttering pulses to organize our
classes. With what great joy did we look forward
iliraminglianl Hngrgrtial Svrhnutg
to the visits of our instructors! And yet those visits
were not so bad after all, were they?
The other half of our class began to study house-
hold administrationfin Crocker Hall. The cooking,
serving, cleaning, etc., were all done by the girls.
What fun it is. None of us will ever regret that we
had this year's experience in Crocker Hall.
This is the first year too, that our H. A. Senior
family has been gathered under one roof. That
roof has been in danger of flying off perhaps but -
we will have to be dignified next year.
We chose Ruth Roop to be our house president
and Florence Bemis to be our treasurer.
March 3rd and our long looked for "Man Dance"
came. Never was there a prettier or more successful
dance than this one Cat least so the guests re-
Under the guidance of our class officers Dorothy
Stockin, president, and Josephine Buckley treasurer
and secretary, our Senior business has run along
Our president and committee are now working
hard on our Class Day program. When we think of
that it gives us a feeling of pain and joy. A few short
weeks and we must say au revoir to Framingham
but never shall we forget the training and pleasures
which we had here.
HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1916
A collection of old letters which have been written
to me during my two years at Framingham will tell
you a great deal of the history of the Class of 1916.
With the full permission of the writers you may read
the following letters.
October 12, 1914.
Do you realize that this is our first holiday, and
that a month has passed since we entered school?
Will you ever forget that first day? I entered the
building in fear and trembling although I tried to
smile and appear brave. In some way, I can't tell
how, I found myself in the Main Hall or Assembly,
or whatever they call it.
Older girls were greeting each other and intro-
ducing new ones. Such a hubbub! I felt lost.
Then the noise ceased and the Faculty entered.
Didn't you wonder whether you should ever know
so many teachers? I am still wondering.
How do you suppose Mr. Whittemore worked out
his plan for seating us? Calling each name and
designating the seat. What a distance it seemed
from the back to my seat in the front of the hall!
I know that I did not walk as I usually do, and my
hair did not look as it had in the mirror. Mr.
Whittemore's smile seemed like a beacon light in
the darkness as he said, "Right there, Alma!" I
felt something within me warm toward him. I guess
you all felt the same.
How shall we ever become acquai.nted with so
many girls and so many rooms. The building isn't
large but it seems like a labyrinth.
November 18, 1914.
Don't you love the girls? We have quite a variety
too. Marie Dunn is wonderful in drawing, and some
of us can't draw to save our lives. Anna Kelley is
always so care free while Annabell Sylvester carries
responsibility for all of us upon her shoulders. Isn't
Ethel Chessman dignified! Joe Buckley, Lorna
Doon, and Helen Burns are a good deal alike, don't
you think so? They study and get their lessons but
they never miss any good times. Alma Carbrey
is nice too, but isn't she peppery if you talk to her
while she is studying! And oh, do you know Grace
Ranney? She talks so slowly that you have to be
sure of time to spare when she begins a story.
I love Miss Roehefort, but you have to keep
awake in her class. I think Miss Greenough was
born with a history in her mouth instead of a silver
iiramingham Nnrmal Svrhnnl
spoon. She is devoted to it, but she is a dear just
I had the best time at the Faculty reception,
didn't you? I dreaded it, too. I thought it would be
December 5, 1916.
I am sorry you have been sick. VVe have been
having a busy time here at school. Jerry Blanchard
has been elected president, and Winifred Archibald
Don't you like Mr. Archibald? He is jolly, but
doesn't he get cross if you sit with your hand up to
your face! No one who knows him ever does it
Isn't Mr. Meier funny! The other day one of the
girls began to recite saying, "I think -." Mr.
Meier waved his hand and said, "Don't drain your
think tank. - Sit down." He walks all around the
room and when you least expect it he pounces upon
you before you have a minute to think.
What do you think Miss Greenough gave for an
assignment in History the other day. "Now I guess
I won't give you any advance lesson for tomorrow.
But I think you'd better become familiar with the
'Epoch Series,' 'Hart's Contemporariesf and
'Fiske's History,' and, if you have time, read
about the Pilgrims in your own book."
Mr. WVhittemore gave us a lecture on wearing
rubbers this morning. He says there is absolutely
no need of having colds if you keep your feet warm.
Perhaps you would not be sick if he had said it
earlier. His talks are always so practical and
straight to the point.
February 4. 1915.
I haven't had a minute before to write to you.
Did you get your card? I passed everything: I
was worried about Penmanship but I passed all
I've been thinking over the Christmas play that
the C Seniors gave. VVasn't it splendid! The
scenery was fine, too. Mr. Ried helped them a great
deal. He is just fine to help the girls out.
I think the Faculty and Seniors enjoyed the
masquerade that we gave, don't you? I liked Helen
Strong as a suffragette, and Corabel Robinson as a
clown. How different the Hall looks dressed up for
I rather dread changing studies for the last half
of the year. Ive just become familiar with one kind
of work, and we leave it to begin something new.
Will you ever forget that rainy Monday morning
when we were nearly all asleep and Miss Rochefort
said, "Come, girls, wake up! Discussion!" I never
saw such a change. In five minutes every one was
thinking deeply and rapidly. But when that period
was over, we drew a. sigh of relief, departed, and slept
peacefully on the rest of the morning.
March Qs, 1915.
How do you like the change of studies? Don't you
love Miss Ramsdell? I enjoy hearing her say -
"Good" 'tAll right." I like the way she comes into
the room in the morning. She crosses the room
without looking our way at all, lays her books upon
the table, puts up a window, pulls down the curtain,
goes back to her desk, looks at us for the Erst time,
smiles and says, "Good Morning."
Have you done your English lesson for Monday?
I wish Miss lVIoore would read to us. That is one
of the enjoyable features of her class.
Gymnastics! Great! I wish we had it all the time.
Miss Shepardson is a. dear! She is always the same,
and she makes us work without our being conscious
of it. Do you remember when we used to go into
class and laugh all the time? Wlhen we first started
vaulting I thought I should die. Some of the girls
fell flat. Marion Brooks is wonderful in the gym-
Zlirumingliam Nnrmal Sirhnnl

appears as if by magic.
Aren't you glad Mr. Hubbard is coming again

This from Ruth Fivlrl who left us last year on
aeeounf of illness.
April 22, 1915.
I am sorry that I am not back in school with you
this year. I hear about you from Marion. She told
me that you were making gardens under Mr. Mcier's
supervision. She said her hack ached so when she
got through planting that she thought she would
never be able to straighten up. I want to see the
gardens when they are in blossom. Mr. 1VIcier is
so particular about everything he does. Marion
said the seeds had to be in straight lines and one-
quarter of an inch apart.. I hear that the Seniors
have started to rehearse for Class Day. Just think!
In a few months you will be all through the Junior
year. Are you glad?
Remember me to the Faculty and the girls. Tell
them not to forget me.
May 18, 1915.
Didn't Gladys VYagner do splendidly! I think it
takes a good deal of courage to speak before so many
people. It was quite an honor for her to lay the
corner stone of the new Dormitory.
IIasn't it been hotl 'Poor Seniors! They have been
out practicing for Class Day until they must be
worn out. Poor teachers, tool Mr. Ried, Miss
Roehefort, Miss Shcpardson, and Mr. Archibald
have to be there all the time. They all seem to have
a good time, though.
June 27, 1915.
It seems so strange to be all through school for
this year. IfVhen I think that I shall be a "dignified"
Senior in September, I am frightened.
The girls who took part in Class Day exercises
must feel well repaid for their work. WVasn't the
pageant splendid! T he idea of working out a scene
for each month was fine. A visitor told me that she
thought it a very novel entertainment.
Wasn't their graduation splendid, tool I enjoyed
Dr. Perrin very much. I hope our Class Day and
Graduation will be as fine as this year's.
Well, I'm off for a game of tennis.
The following letters were TCCCZ-1'Ud during my Senior
October 3, 1915.
Oh, isn't it good to be back in school! And isn't
the new dormitory splendid! I enjoy living here too,
but I don't like soup every day for lunch.
I shall always remember our first day as Seniors.
The seating process did not impress me as it did last
year, and I thought Mr. WVhittemore would never
tell us whether we were to be A, B, or C Seniors.
I'm glad I am a C, aren't you? I wonder what A
Senior will get the ninth grade.
Are you going to the Senior-Junior reception?
Mr. Whittemore says he must get out his clean
white collar for the occasion.
Aren't the C Seniors a curious group of girls?
If they had been choosing a company of "Independ-
ents" they couldn't have found a better group.
Agnes Monteith and Helen Quirk are so cold.
Either one will fly into a rage, if by mistake, you
call her "dean" And there's Mildred Patterson.
Her large serene eyes gaze upon a world entirely
without sentiment. Da Lewis and Agnes Tierney
are very quiet but "to know them is to love them."

been out of the house, VVe had a big storm here two
days ago, and they haven't shoveled us out yet..
I'm glad I had time to rest though. I was all
tired out rehearsing for "Mrs. Rugglesf' I'm so
glad its all over. The girls took their parts splen-
didly. I almost laughed when Agnes Tierney alias
"Clement" appeared in party clothes. I think it
was hard for us to entertain after the B Seniors gave
such a splendid program.
Didn't we have a fine time the day Mr. lNIeier
took us to Cambridge! I think he does a great deal
for the girls. I shall never forget our trip to the
North Station after we left the others.
I dread changing studies. Just think! The B

VVeren't the Juniors clever to think of giving us a
children's party? It was certainly a success,
How well all the Faculty looked. I should like to
have their pictures. Did you dance with Miss
Rochefort? I had a hard time to keep off' the points
of her shoes. And Miss Ramsflell ate all the ice

"IYhere did that straw come from?" We were
wondering where the clothes had gone so I don't
think anyone answered.
March 5, 1916.
Wasn't it the loveliest dance you ever went to?
Oh! I had the best time. And to think I dreaded it,
too. I thought it was going to be so formal.
Did you see Mr. Whittemore get up and imitate
our dancing? His little granddaughter was there,
Poor lVIiss Shepardsonl She was so afraid we
would do something to disgrace her, but I think
everyone did very well.
Did you know there were three girls under the
platform in the dining room? And every time you
looked into the kitchen you could see a row of girls'
heads looking out. While we were getting ready in
the dormitory, about twelve Middle Juniors gath-
ered in Dot Newell's room. Some of them were
equipped with Hash lights. When one girl saw a man
coming around the corner she whispered, 'AI-Iere
comes a man." Immediately out went the lights,
twelve heads were in the window-a breathless
silence - then - "Oh isn't l1e,f1'ne!" "Oh, I don't
like him at all!" "Oh, aren't you disappointed!
She said he was good looking."
But we did have the best time, and the dormitory
looked very attractive. Wlhat was the matter with
the ice cream? Didn't you think it tasted queer?
I thought it was too bad to stop at eleven-thirty
when we only have one dance in two years.
March 19, 1916.
W'asn't the Glee Club concert tromlerjfulff It
gives you an enitrely different spirit toward the
school than the one you have in every day life.
Did you know the joke Edith VVilley played on
us? She told us all along that she was going to bring
a "Friend" to the Glee Club concert, and she wanted
all ofthe girls to meet him. Of course, we were
delighted. Ive dressed up bvazzlzifzzlly to greet him
and Edith came up about quarter of eight. A crowd
of us girls went down to meet the "Friend" And
who do you suppose it was - Edith'sfr1fhcr. You
should have seen the girls' faces when they were
introduced. We all liked him though, so that made
up a little bit for the shock.
I thought the girls sang beautifully. Margaret
Chalifaux did well too.
I felt terribly when they began to sing the school
songs. To think that school was all over for us.
That is the hard part of being a C Senior. When you
go out into Practice School you feel as if you were
leaving Normal forever. Our last day was a hard
one anyway. If Mr. Ried had only been cross, but
to have him say, "I am sorry you are going, girls,"
almost broke my heart. Then Miss Moore read us
a piece on "Memories" and I thought I should
never live to have memories. But practical Miss
Rochefort gave us an examination which set us on
our feet again.
Just think! We go into Practice School for three
months, then Class Day and Graduation, then as
Mr. Howe says, t'We go out into the cold, cold,
Did you know we had planned a trip around the
world for Class Day? We are going to start from
Framingham. First, we are going to England and
give a part of one of Shakespeare's plays. From
there we travel to Japan and present parts of the
"-Iapanese Girl." We then come to the Western
part of the Ilnited States and give "Hiawatha"
Ive then come home to Framinghan and sing our
school songs. We are going to rehearse very soon.

OUR HOUSEHOLD ADMINISTRATION
Of the girls who have experienced the first year
of the Household Administration course i11 Frocker
Hall, everyone will agree that, but for the untiring
effort and helpful spirit, of Miss Nicholass, the work
would never have gone along in such perfect har-
mo11y. She l1as brought it. home to us that it is the
teaching through love rather than fear which has
won more hearts and brought success, -that the
way to approach a pupil is not with the spirit of
aggression and discouragement. Many conditions
in the beginning, and difficulties arising since, such
as the accounting and apportionments, have not
been as she 01' we would have chosen the1n, yet she
has taught us patie11ce and control i11 dealing with
these matters and many others. Vfe have looked
upon our experience here as a bright spot in the last
few 1no11ths of our school life. No doubt in the
future we will come to appreciate it more than ever.
"ive eat what we can and what we can't, we can."
During the Sllllllilel' months of 1915, a IIQXY enter-

Framingham students with the able assistance of

little of work. The night before the dance was the

But the night of the real event, everything was in

and forty guests remarked that it looked like a real

THE NEW PRACTIVE SCHOOL
The new Practice School which was built last
year is situated on Irving street opposite the com-
mon. The land upon which this building is erected
was originally conveyed to the proprietors of the
Brick School House in Framingham by Thomas
Buckminster and Samuel Frost: and has been con-
tinually in use for school purposes since November
27, 1792. On this piece of land there has stood the
Brick School House in Framingham opened Novem-
ber Q7, 1799: the Framingham Academy, incor-
porated March 1, 1799, and the Framingham High
School, erected in 1857.
The building is made of red brick and resembles
Independence Hall, Philadelphia. It is a thoroughly
model school building, having all modern improve-
ments and being a fire proof structure.
Un the first floor there are the first, second, third,
fourth and fifth grades, besides two recitation rooms
and book closets.
On the second floor there are the sixth, seventh,
eighth and ninth grades, the large assembly hall
where tl1e children gather for general singing and
The basement is a large, cheery place containing a
spacious gymnasium and two lunch rooms. There
is also a room to be used for manual training for the
boys and a room for sewing for the girls.
The building is called the "Jonathan Maynard
School" in honor of a noted citizen who was the first
postmaster of the town.
The first meeting of the Dramatic Club, this year
was held on Tuesday, November 9, in Room -Ll,
Wells Building in order to accommodate the large
number of girls present. The present members
number twenty-Hve. This meeting was presided
over by Miss Mary C. Moore organizer of the Club,
and the following officers were elected: president
Irene Newton: Vice-president, Mary lN1cLaughlin:
and secretary-treasurer, Constance Brown.
The purpose of the Club as explained by Bliss
Moore, is to provide for the girls, outside of the
Glee Club and Orchestra, a means of entertaining
the school and of becoming better acquainted with
some of the standard plays by reading and by
Accordingly on Monday, February 7, at 1.50

Besides presenting these two plays many others
were read during the year. These included "Maids
and Matronsf' "Jeanne d'Are" by Percy MaeKaye,
t'The Bird Sactuary" also by Percy MacKaye, and
"As You Like It" by Shakespeare. Miss Moore also
gave a few Very interesting talks on the Drama and
the plan of the Community Theatre which will ever
be remembered by all those who heard them.
The interest in the Dramatic Club as shown by
the members of the school and especially by Mr.
Wvhittemore was a great incentive to the girls, and
in behalf of the members of the Club we wish to
thank all who have helped by their thorough
appreciation of the work of the Club. We hope that
next year the attendance will be even greater than
it was this year and the results as profitable.
The first athletic event of our school year was the
tennis t.ourna.n1ent. A few weeks after school opened
Miss Shepardson called for tournament entries and
was much encouraged by the ready response of the
girls. After many close and much enjoyed pre-
liminaries the survivors for the semi-finals were
"Jerry" Blanchard '17, 'fGert" Milliken '17, M.
Keepe '18 and A. Moore '17, In the semi-finals
"Gert" defeated "Jerry" fi-Q, fi-Q, and M. Keepe
defeated Althea 6-2, 0-1.
In a very oflicial and exciting game INI. Kcepc
defeated G. Milliken 7-5, 6-82 in the finals, thus
winning the cup and championship of the school.
The tournament was surely a great success and
we hope that there will be just as much enthusiasm
Our tennis tournament was scarcely over, when
the bulletin boards began to bear notices for Harvard
and Yale basket ball candidates. The call was
answered by V6l'y enthusiastic and hard working
squads so that the gymnasium was in use most of
the time. The teams that lined up on the bright
Saturday afternoon as the Framingham representa-
tives of the big foot ball players were: -
L. Kingman, f.
M. Mansfield, f.
M. Parker, c.
M. Keepe, f.
M. Brooks, f.
A. Keeley, c.
D. Leach, c. c.
L. Steele, g. capt.
R. Blanchard, g.
G. Lingham, c. c. capt.
IVI. Bodfish, g.
C. French, g.
The game was very exciting and well played.
Yale in the end being the winner with a score of
Q5 against Harvard's 5. The girls showed that they
had worked hard to give us good teams and everyone
deserves much credit.
The gymnasium looked very attractive with its
banner bedccked walls and its red and blue decora-
tions of fair followers. Molly Yvclls and Yvonne
Provost certainly kept the cheering lively and we
all know that neither of them sang much during the
next few days. The Yale bull-dog joined his voice
with ours a number of times, while the Harvard
people very cleverly produced Yale's goat.
Our dining room for evening dinner was decorated
even more prettily than the gymnasium. Miss
Allen did her best and had the color of the food
match the color of our respective sentiments. It
su1'ely was a perfect day and there seemed to be
just as good prospects for a perfect day next year.
Once more volley ball found a welcome place in
the forms of athletic work at this school. The first
of the year many Juniors became ardent enthusi-
asts of that game and could be found practicing for
several hours a week trying to make the team -
to be made of a chosen few. After much practice
and seve1'al try-outs the teams of all the classes
How many Juniors aspired for the team, but only
twelve could be chosen. Breathless many watched
for the list of players and how happy the fortunate
ones were! More earnestly than ever the various
classes practiced and planned for the important
games to come.
The first game was on February 4. The H. A.
Juniors played the Regular Juniors. The game
waxed warm for the two fifteen minute halves.
The seore was .37--ld in favor of the Regular Juniors!
Naturally the Regulars were highly jubilant but the
H. A.'s were good losers and showed the right spirit.
The winning team next played tl1e Bliddle Juniors
on 'February 10. This game was certainly exciting
and proved more than worth while for the sup-
porters of both teams that came out in goodly
numbers. The metal of every player was taxed to
its greatest and at the end the Juniors came out
victorious with the hard earned seore of 4-L-4-1 in
their favor. The game was certainly a stiff one and
brought out very strongly what eraek players both
teams were made up of.
For March 16, was scheduled a game between the
Seniors and Regular Juniors. Although the Juniors
had previously been so sur-eessful, it was with a sort
of fear and trembling that they thought of the
approaching game. Many loyal supporters for both
teams turned out to see the most exciting game of
all. And such a game! The first half was nearly a
tie 224-Q3 in favor of Juniors! A minute of rest, and
then the second half began. How alert every player
was! How fast the ball flew back and forth until
but a minute and a half was left! Harder and with
greater precision were the balls served -in a flash
the game was ended with a score of 59-45 in favor of
the Regular Juniors!! The Juniors nearly went mad
with delight and I am sure their captain - Louise
Kingman felt repaid for her hard work - her work
and enthusiastic spirit undoubtedly brought out the
best in her team.
The captain of the H. A. Juniors was Mildred
Breitzke: of the Middle Juniors Charlotte Moore,
and of the Seniors Marion Brooks. The members of
the winning team were: - Capt. Louise Kingman:
players: - Dorothy Leach, Dorothy Rice, Marion
Gallagher, Bertha Austin, Helen Murphy, Marion
Viihite, Louise Mac'Laugl1lin, Sarah Babcock,
Abbie Taylor, Laura Juvenille and Marion Davis.
Volley ball is first class exercise. It would indeed
be a pity if the game should lose its supporters and
have t.o be given up.

THouschold A rts Course.
This school year has been a most successful one
for the school orchestra. Early in the year the
orchestra was organized with fourteen members,
and the following officers were elected: manager,
Mr. Linwood W'orkman: leader, Eleanor Pearce:
pianist, Hazel l1'hite: secretary-treasurer, Marion
1Vilkins and librarian, Gertrude Milliken.
The orchestra was first heard at the Faculty
Reception to the Juniors on the afternoon of
October 1, 1915. The next appearance was at the
Christmas Party, December 16, in the Dining Hall
of the new dormitory, where it furnished music
The Junior Reception to the Seniors was in the
form of a Childrens' Party on the evening of
January 17, on that occasion the members were also
costumed and appeared as a Juvenile Orchestra.
Then came three engagements in quick succes-
sion, these were the Juniors' Valentine Dance to
the Middle Juniors, February 41, t.he meeting of the
Framingham Teachers' Association in May Hall,
February 9, and the Orchestra Dance, February 11.'
The Teachers' Association Entertainment was
greatly enjoyed by the orchestra members, who,
after the entertainment, aided the committee in
serving refreshments, and then furnished music for
dancing the remainder of the evening.
The Orchestra Dance was a new idea to help the
treasuryg ten cents admission was charged and
about one hundred and twenty students attended
the dance. The orchestra was ably assisted by Miss
Dorothy Stockin and Mr. Yvorkman who furnished
music for a Virginia Reel. It was a financial success
and everybody reported an enjoyable evening.
Next on the list came one of the big events of the
year, the Senior Prom. This year it was held on the
evening of March 3, in the Dining Hall of the new
dormitory. Music was furnished during a reception
from 7.30 to 8.30, and then for dancing until 11.30.
On March 10 we joined with the Glee Club for
the Annual Concert of the hlusical Clubs. VVe were
assisted by Mr. Frank S. Currier, violinist, Mr.
Oran G. Kirkpatrick, tenor, and Miss Ruth Roth,
accompanist, The concert was under the manage-
ment of Mr. F. VV. Ried and a committee of eight
from both clubs. It was a great success.
Then came the last big event of the year, the trip
to Salem for the joint conert with the Salem Normal
School Musical Clubs on llflarch Q1. There were
sixty-six in the party and we were accompanied by
Miss Corey, Mr. Ried and Mr. 1Vorkman. At the
concert we were assisted by the same artists. Every-
one enjoyed the trip and the concert.
Financially and socially this has been one of the
most successful years the school orchestra has ever
The members this year were:

cess, are deeply appreciated by the members and
th? Students- HELEN M. QUIRK '16,

THE GLEE CLUB
The Glee Club this year was the largest in the
history of the school, being composed of fifty-three
members. After the new members had been
admitted in the Fall by competition, we held our
first meeting and chose the following officers:
SE'C'1'l'IlllI'qlj, Pauline Fernald, '16.
Trea.vurer, B. Lillian Barker, '1G.
L1.bI'Ill'l-CHI, Ethel Chessman, '16.
Pz'anz'.sf, Dorothy Stoekin, '16,
Leader, M1'. Archibald.
Regular weekly meetings were held each Tuesday
in Room 3 from 2.30 to 3.30, and on March 10, 1916,
we made our first public appearance in a concert of
the Musical Vlubs, with assisting artists. This
Concert was declared to be the best ever given, both
from a pleasure stand point and a. financial one.
Two weeks later found us in Salem, where practi-
cally the same program was given in a joint concert
with the Salem Normal School Musical Clubs.
After these two concerts were over, we were busy
preparing for the joint concert with the Tufts Col-
lege Musical Clubs given under the auspices of the
Senior Class, the proceeds of which went to them to
defraytheir expenses. It is needless to say that we
all had a good time!
This year at Commencement found the Glee
Club taking more part than ever before, for they
furnished two selections for the Baccalaureate
Sermon Exercises, besides singing at Graduation.
The music and the work has been up to a high
standard this year and all we can say is that we hope
it will have as successful a year as this has been.

I 'ROCKER HALL
As August drew to a close, we wondered l1ow
affairs were progressing in Fl'Hll1lI1gllilIH and if the
ideal of House Practice would really materialize.
Then came the cards from our future house
"mother," Miss Dawson, telling of the numbers of
our future rooms and shortly after an imposing
communication requesting us to "take up our
residence in Crocker Hall" on Tuesday afternoon,
the fourth of September and we knew that House
Practice was really to be.
Arriving Tuesday, after n1ucl1 swapping of yarns
and furniture and unpacking of trunks, we settled
down for the coming year. VVednesday morning,
bright and early we started our special duties from
those of us that were cooks to those that were
"in the refrigerator. "
Vifednesday afternoon the other girls arrived and
we found two Middlers in our happy familyg you
will find them now in their private suite on third
when they are entertaining a. member of the faculty
otherwise you may search the dormitory and
perhaps not find them.
Wie have had good times together with Ruth as
our House President to start things going. The
first was when the Juniors came up to see us their
first Friday night here and we tried to help them
forget their sorrows at leaving 'fhome and mother."
In October with the assistance of the outside
girls we celebrated Hallowe'en by entertaining the
New Dorm girls at a Costume Party. Our guests
were met at the door by ghostly guides who es-
corted them on a 'Wvild Goose Chase" up and down
stairs twined with thistles to show them the "Society
lielle's Lost Pete," the Graveyard, and Blue
lSeard's Den. We then went over to the lunchroom
where we did stunts and had "eats," told stories
At New Years we had a dinner party inviting
Division A and we all spent a very enjoyable social
From then on events moved swiftly up to Mid
Years when the order changed and a new era came
in. No more free OJ afternoons spent in reading
or working on raffiia baskets for B Division. And
the A's who had long envied them their life of leisure
had a chance to try it for themselves. We all
enjoyed our Practice School even though we perhaps
arrived unexpectedly and no preparation had been
made for our entertainment. The f'Johnitors" are
execrable but what can you expect of men.
On Friday the thirty-first of March wc, Crocker-
ites, had a Book Party in the Drawing Room.
Books of all sorts were represented from "Oliver
Twist" and the "T ale of Two Cities" to "Old Rose
and Silver" and "Pollyanna." A very pleasant
evening came to an end only too soon.
Altogether we have had a delightful year and
eventful too. Room wreckings, furniture smashing,
calm deliberate house meetings and tire drills, which
came when we VV0l'6 either in bed or the tub, were the
order of the day and night. Long will we remember
Crocker Hall and the good times we have had
together. Here we are:-

THIRD FLOOR CROCKER
Vile arrived here September the eighth, knowing
only that our rooms were located somewhere on the
third floor and wondering in what corner our room
was to be, and who our neighbors were. Now that
we think of it, we could not have planned it better
ourselves, could we? 1fVe admit that the occupants
of first and second floors have a. different opinion.
1V1ost of us were settled when Bunch blew in a
day late with "that suit ease" and as her trunk had
not arrived, the settling of the most popular room
on the north side of Crocker was delayed. But
then, that room was never settled, was it? It never
appears so although its occupants clean it every
Do you remember the hot days of September,
1915? It interfered with our school work for a few
days but, somehow or other, the evening perfor-
mances of the Teddy Bear dance continued without
Fall is the time for canning, we've been told. So
it is no surprise that we did our share, did it in
Normal Hall kitchen, too, under Mr. Meier's
direction. Vile could can any time from 8 A. M. to
9. P. M., but from 7 to 9 P.M., were the most
popular hours. Do you remember the night when
there was "Nobody Home?"
Parties, spreads, etc., were common in all the
rooms and enjoyed by all. Leftovers from the
kitchen were especially good.
1Vhat shall we do in case of fire? This was a
common question but fire drills settled it. Fire
drills at night, before study l1ou1' and-yes-even
in the afternoon. VVhy, of course, we are safe in
case of fire after all our practice.
Speaking of questions: which is the noisiest part
of Crocker Hall? The north end seems to get the
most blame and must bear it since the "Bed-
Wlrecking Association" had its Den in that corner,
and the "Indignation Meetings" and "Smoke Talks"
we1'e held in that district. Lil took the leading part
at the talks and Glen with the Davises made the
indignation meetings interesting. The t'Bed-
tVrecking Association" was started and carried on
very effectively by Une Lung and Lil. However, the
blame fell on Bunch, Laura, and Ju-ju, who, after
a private meeting in the office decided that the
Association must disband. And it didl
There is a mystery in every house, it is said.
1Ve had one but now it is solved. However, let us
remind Johnnie that all letters should be posted
before 10 P. M.
During the month of 1V1arch, it was the sad fate
of the Crockerites to lose their recreation hour from
9-9.30 P. M., for a week. It was a shame that our
two "early birds" had to be punished along with the
On the evening of March 3, 1916, Crocker Hall
was in a state of great excitement. It was the night
of the Hlylan Dance." 'WVhat is that group of girls
doing at the head of the stairs on third floor?"
"Who are they?" Three hours ago, they were quiet,
sedate school teachers and now - miracle of
miracles!-they are a group of fair young maidens.
Uh, we of the third Hoor Crocker have much to
look back upon now. Senior year at F. N. S., held
fun as well as work for us. Such a variety of amuse-
ments we have had! Attending Glenna's classes in
Pie Alley, special trips to the post office at night,
Elirmninghanm Nnrnml Qrlinnl
swapping clothes, playing with broken chairs, and
attending bird lectures are only a few of them.
And best of alll, Shushi, our House President,
lived on third floor. Though ready for fun with the
rest of us, she was true to the position she held, and
saved us from many a close call.
Last September a crowd of happy lively girls
marched in to take possession of the New Dormitory.
During the summer vacation, each girl received her
room number, and a short list of rules and regula-
tions-things to be done and things not to do.
Some of us were a little disappointed at first, at
not being able to have "roomies" but it took but a
short time to reconcile us to our single rooms. On
the few days preceding the opening of school,
trunks and suitcases arrived, and excited girls
hurried hither and thither looking up their rooms,
and asking of one another, "Where's your room?"
"lYhat's your number?" t'Oh, dear! I hope it's near
mine." "Are you sure it's in the third corridor."
In an incredibly short time, from a big, empty
formidable looking building, the New Dorm was
transformed into a comfortable attractive home,
filled with Seniors, Middlers, and Juniors, with Miss
Allen as Matron.
A short time later, we had a "house meeting,"
and Eleanor Vlaire was chosen House President and
Dorothy George, vice-president. The gongs seemed
to us, at first, a trifle loud, but as time went on,
even the rising gong failed to awaken most of us.
The first few weeks of school the weather was
terribly hot and some of our bravest slept out on
the Roof Garden at night. "VVhat if it did rain
occasionally?" "What if the starving mosquitoes
did eat many a midnight lunch?" These are nothing
when it comes to testing our powers of endurance.
Our Roof Garden is quite the "Pride of our hearts,"
when we think of its various uses. Japanese Tea
Garden, Sleeping Porch,Hair Drying Establishment,
Dance Hall, Observatory and others too numerous
Our first social event was the Suffragette Parade
and dance on Saturday evening, October 16. The
Antis and Suffragettes were equally represented, but
despite the differences, we all had a good time.
On Halloween night, Crocker Hall and the
Outside girls invited the New Dormitory to a
Hallowe'en party. Everyone was masked, and on
arrivi.ng at Crocker, we were conducted by tor-
tuous and devious ways, through Spookland with
all its Spectres ever ready to reach out and grab
terrorized victims, down dangerous stairways,
through the Graveyard, wherein reposed the
Faculty, by the door of the worn out Society Belle
into Blue Beard's Den, and lastly into the kitchen.
Here webobbedforapples, ate doughnuts suspended
by strings and did other "stunts" From the
kitchen we went through a dark underground
passage lighted only by the glow of sulphur and
brimstone, to May Hall where we danced, ate,
drank and told stories. We say, Three Cheers for
the Vrocker Hall and Outside Girls!
On November 20, excitement reigned supreme.
The cause of it was the Harvard-Yale Basket Ball
game which was a success for Yale. Of course,
both sides couldn't win. But cheer up, if we can't
"root" it isn't the fault of Yvonne or Nlolly. VVe
had the dining room decorated in Blue and Red for
the occasion. Red tables for Harvard and Blue for
Yale. Songs, toasts, cheers, and the 'tSnake Dance"
were important features of the dinner. Afterward,
we danced in the Reception room.
Dancing has played part in our social life in the
New Dorm. Every night between dinner and
study hour we have 'ttripped the light fantastic."
until shrieks of "the mail has come" is heard and
then follows a wild rush for letters.
CWANTED: A R.AG'fIME PIANO PLAYERJ Yes,
we can heartily recommend Dot March or Yvonne.
They haven't been practising on us all the year
Aside from these social events, week end, vietrola,
costume and birthday parties, life in the meantime
has been uneventual QD. QHarkJ a screech breaks
Zllramingham Nnrmal Srhnnl
in on my thoughts. Methinks it must be one of the
inmates of the Menagerie on third floor not yet
tamed, getting ducked under the shower. A com-
mittee is duly sent up to investigate and report
favorably, also add that a concert is going on in
Room 594admission two cents, that an exhibition
in aesthetic dancing is taking place, some where in
another part of the building, and that sandwiches,
salads, hot dogs, candy, etc., are being peddled over
the whole dormitory.
The New Dorm has had a mysterious visitor
who has taken it upon himself to keep a close
watch over us. It must be confessed that we are-n't
the least bit grateful to him. If our valiant Chef
should volunteer to give his services to the United
States against Germany or the Nlexieans, we
would warn the enemy to "look out and keep a tight
hold on hats."
Before our Christmas vacation we had our Xmas
party and dinner and invited Crocker Hall to join
us. The tables in the dining hall were cleared away
to make room for dancing. The school orchestra
furnished the music. Later in the evening the
Seniors of the New Dorm and Vrocker Hall went
"enrolling" through the village. The party broke
up, with everyone full of good cheer, leaving for the
In February we had a sleighing party. It was a
good clear night, the sleighing was good and ended
with hot chocolate and lunch.
On the third of March came the event which all
the Seniors look forward to with the most interest,
the "Senior Prom." It was held in the dining room
of the New Dormitory. The Middle Juniors decora-
ted and acted as waitresses.
VV e are looking forward to the June dance which
we hope will be as big a success as this was.

YYhy arc we called the 'fRogerites?" Because
we lived with dear old lVIrs. Rogers, down on Main
Street-the very best place in town. We were
seven in mnnber for two years. First and foremost,
come Dotty Stockinl Just think how proud we were
to have that dear popular lady in our midst. for two
years. The first year, where Dotty wasfthere
Eleanor was also-cousins 'noi sisters! Carolyn
Armitage lived alone, except for her locket. and
pictures. Ellen Prophett and Dorothy Lamb
roomed together for awhile. To end the list came
Florence Remis and Nlarian Evansgthe two room-
mates who never had a quarrel.
Wie weren't long in getting acquainted with Doro-
thy Lamb as a leader. Such phrases as "How I do
love to skate" will never be forgotten-nor the days
when "she felt just like herself." And oh! the
Dotty Stockin gave us a dandy good time at her
home in Yvatertown one week end in November.
That drew us all nearer together in many ways.
tYhy was it that we came back at a certain time on
Sunday? I wonder-.
At the slightest excuse, we prepared a spread-
all holidays and birthdays were celebrated by
feasts. After one vaeat.ion we all brought back
"goodies" and we had our biggest and best family
"feed"-It was on nights like these that we would
always hear the familiar call from the foot of the
stairs-"Now let ye's get to bed earrly, girls."
lNIrs. Rogers was so fine to us-for examplee
Varolyn had a IPIJOII' xlllilt' of rooms all for the price
of one single room! W'e were more or less jealous
of her good fortune at times! Another of Mrs. Rfs
good hearted acts was an Xmas party each year and
the mysterious Grab Bag that went with it.
Such excitement as D. Lamb caused, when she
left after mid-years! Ellen left soon after because
of poor health. To take their places, came Marion
Rowley and Marguerite f'hapin-and we were all
so glad to receive them into our little household.
From that time on, all the rumpus went on in the
back room-except when lamps smoked-that
happened to all of us.
House parties? Oh, yes indeed-we had them.
Over the thirtieth of May we went to Lake Lash-
away-as Florence's guest. Vvho ever had a better
time? Then after school closed in June, four of us
went to Pocasset with some Bridgewater girls.
Ellen Prophett. gave us this good time. YVe spent
a week there and did so hate to come back.
Mother Rogers welcomed almost the same girls
the next year-along with Jerry Blanchard and
Do1'is Logue-two Juniors who won their way into
our hearts. Rut no sooner than school started when
hlarguerite packed up and left us. In no time did
we hear of her engagement and on Thanksgiving we
were all invited to her wedding.
Our house held some very popular ladies-Dotty
was just the best president the Experimental
Kitchen ever had. Eleanor was class treasurer and
Florence was X. P. K. treasurer. The rest of the
Rogerites could always be depended upon when on
Now that we are Seniors, it seems funny to think
of the excitement the Man Dance caused us, when
all we did was to rent our rooms-but We were
excited and we 11 id have a lot of fun.
Another house party at Lake Lashaway in hiay,
made us fall head over heels in love with the place
and with those who let us in on it. It was a Hdider-
ent" kind of a crowd than the year before-I didn't
say belief, just different.
Framingham Nnrmal Ssrhnnl
Toward the end of the year we were more than
busy, getting ready our Chemistry Exhibits, helping
on Class Day and getting ready to go home. Wie
knew that the next year we would not be with Mrs.
Rogers, but we all knew that we had spent two very
happy years there.
"Listen to my tale of woe." If you have never
heard this meolody, just go down to '7 Cross Street.
It was to an innocent little quartet of Household
Arts Juniors that this song was first sung when we
were trying to convince ourselves that
3 Cu S-I-8 HN03:3Cu CNO3j2-I-Q NO-I-4-H2 O4-3
It was not long before our knowledge was greatly
increased for we made use of all of our golden oppor-
tunities. VVe learned that doors and windows must
not be used interehangeably, that violets could be
sent through the mail although Parcel Post was not
established, and that Juniors should be neither
seen nor heard fsmall chance of the latterj.
A close relative of one of our classmates had an
auto but only once could we take a ride because "it"
was not safe. It was equally as dangerous for the
pedestrian although we could toot our horn.
Many thanks to our house-mother who saw to it
that when the furnace fire failed to work, hot cocoa
did. VVe were having a glorious time when suddenly
the tale of woe became a reality. Wie were in the
hands of the receiver for having broken the Framing-
ham Commandments which we never knew existed.
Investigation proved that there was much smoke
but little fire.
One morning we had the good fortune to be the
possessors of eggs, bread, and milk. VVe were given
the use of kitchen, dishes, and stove. However we
soon learned that to prepare a good breakfast minus
broken dishes, soiled linen, and spotless floors one
more thing was needed, and that was experience.
It took us one hour and one half to get a little mess
of nothing. We were truly thankful that we were
taking the H. A. Course.
Often during the year, we saw ourselves as others
saw us all because of an innocent register. But girls,
if you want a taste of real Junior life, go to Harring-
ton's for its is a YYin-ner.
H UNT HOUSE
At Hunt House Cheavenly mansionb eight girls
answered to roll call our first year. No attendance
has ever been kept, to our knowledge, of the other
inmates. Some might find it difficult to answer.
If our only ambition in life was to rise we certainly
had it. Do we remember the struggles in trying to
deliver ourselves and rubbers from Hunt Hill mud or
our like struggles in trying to stand up over Hunt
You may ask "YYas it worth the work in getting
there?" Absurd question. Hunt. House consisted
of a Hrst floor, including primarily a kitchen, living-
roomg and a second floor with four rooms, and a hall,
which served as our reception room. Gatherings
were held about a table with a marble top which
served to cool any candy.
Hunt House had t.wo annexes. The candy factory,
gooy place, represented by Philly after making
acquaintance with the molasses barrel and the pig
who just grunted.
Things moved along more or less, often less,
smoothly, during the autumn, but with winter came
hardships. The weather was cold and so were we
at times. VVhen there was no water in the basement
to hinder the fire from burning we were very com-
fortable. Sad to say, however, there were periods
between these comfortable spells.
VVe well remember the mornings when to get up
was like suddenly jumping into the arctic circle. VVe
also recall how very sociable it was to study, all
huddled into the warmest room, done up in blankets.
Then came a time, long to be remembered, when the
pipes of Hunt House refused to stand the cold any
longer: they froze one and all. Two of our number
bravely clung to the hill but the rest of us departed
to warmer climates for four days.

8. Don't use screens, June Hugs are much more
entertaining, especially in your room-mates hair.

the fine arts.

These are only a few hints on life given us by our
experience. To read these is to suggest the rest,

Only two of those who spent their first year at
Thompson's are still here, but they are only tl1e
pleasantest of memories.
There were Hve of us Juniorsg three Household
Arts girls and two regulars. But. one of the House-
hold Arts girls had a single room and she ate at
Normal Hall, so the other four clung together.
But around Thanksgiving time, they grew more
cordial, and everafter, the five were one.
We were Juniors: stranded in a strange place
where strange things were expected of us. If we
had only known what those strange things were,
we might have had an easier time. Nvhat con-
centration we had to strive for! lvhile Ted and Lil
were ,puzzling over chemistry equations under
Julia's direction, Katherine and Fannie were sing-
ing UD tuneless and discordant ditties in an effort
to compete with other girls in Mr. Archibald's
classes. The one thing we all joined in on were
the dances Miss Bennett tried to teach us in
gynmasium. And always the night before Katherine
or Fannie had a teaching lesson in that subject, the
rest of us were lined up to be practiced upon. WVe
all had our ups and downs, but the1'e were always
enough good-natured ones to drive the "blues" away
from the others. And so the lessons went on: some
days were good ones, and some we1'e badg but we
were all fortunate at the end of the year.
Good times! Oh, those were many! VVe had some
nice long walks in the afternoons and such good
feeds at night. And Mrs. Thompson was so good
to usl Remember the time we popped corn and
roasted apples in her kitchen: remember the cake
and tea she used to bring in to us on a rainy after-
noon: and best of all, remember the time it snowed
so hard we couldn't get out and she let us go out
into the kitchen and cook our own meals. Those
were the things that made 1 Pleasant Street "one
pleasant place" and put Mrs. Thompson in a light
which is still shining brightly. Of course, we had
to have the traditional "midnight feast" and
Christmas eve was the night chosen for the event.
Supplies and mattresses were gathered together in
one room during the afternoon and at 10 o'cloek, we
all went to bed: not to sleep, but only to wait until
122 o'clock when we all got up and enjoyed ourselves
to the utmost. At the end, however, we all took our
mattresses to our own rooms and finished out the
night in peace.

Ted left school in January and after the fire in
Normal Hall in February, lNIuriel joined us. Funny
what a dil'ference one person will make! But then,
she was a Middle Junior, and we were only Juniors,
so of course she was excusable.
June came only too soon, but we all went away
with the feeling that we were glad we had met each
other and that we would be happy when September
came and we could be together again.
"The Brown Bunch! W'ho are they?" Some didn't
know but those who did well remember that,
'llixcitement and a Good Time" was the motto of
During our year there we made a few valuable
discoveries which, we trust, were never fully ap-
preciated by our instructors on the Hill.
1. The best position for earnest and concentrated
work is either a comfortable window seat or rocking
chair, preferably the ones in a certain second floor
front room at Brown's. From these vantage points
one could not fail to see all that happened in the
square and the passerby appreciated our industry.
Q. Come early and avoid the rush for the rocking
chair. YVhy? The roof next door was being fixed.
3. The wisest time to play the piano is before
4-.15 on week-days, never on Saturdays and Sundays
4-. YVhen taking flash-lights or wrecking rooms, it
is not wise to be too noisy as someone is liable to
be outside waiting to give assistance.
5. A very good way to amuse one's self over week-
ends is to "call on the people with whom we lived
last year." It used to furnish a very good reason
for walking in a certain direction.
6. The best way to enter Brown's is through a
first floor window. Then we were sure of the pro-
tecting and ever-watchful eye of our friend, the
policeman. Besides, we were ever careful not to
wake Lil, and the front door did squeak.
7. Closets and wardrobes are very useful for
both things and people, especially if men for the
Man Dance arrive an hour too early.
8. The best time to start, studying fora chem.
exam. or a teaching plan for methods is about 9.30
on the night before they are due. A longer prepara-
tion is sure to bring a lower mark.
9. It is better not to stand on the piazza from
early evening until later if one does not enjoy hear-
ing, "Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat," played
continuously on the harmonica.
10. The best time to have a craving for a college-
ice is about 9.50 when the drug store is closing and
everyone is ready to obey "Lights Out."
11. Undoubtedly, the only comfortable place to
sleep is on the slanting back roof. But-caution:
Be sure that you are really awake when it becomes
day light, otherwies you may find difhculty in re-
turning to your ow11 room via the window which
won't push way up.
12. The best time to study, always, is when
everyone else is in the same room, the open fire is
crackling noisily, the ingredients for fudge are being
loudly demanded, the absence of all alcohol and the
never-present can-opener are being suggestive-ly
lamented, etc., etc.
13. It is much nicer not to have the mail de-
livered at the house for then each member of the
house is privileged to call for it at the Post Ufdce
four times a day.
14. The truly best part of living at Brown's may
be enjoyed on an icy cold and snowy Friday morning
at 725. Then we all had the pleasure of trying to
hike hastily across the slippery square loaded with
books, sewing bags, aprons, and laundry bags. We
deserved our breakfasts those mornings.
15. It is perfectly all right to have parties and
hilarious times but it is wisest to keep the windows
closed and to avoid casting shadows on the curtain,
These and many more wise and valuable truths,
we deducted from our year at Browns'. But the
biggest and the best truth we proved beyond a
doubt during the vacation the last of May. At
Sandy Pond we had the very best time of the year
and discovered for a fact that we knew how to
celebrate a good holiday together. If you doubt it,
ask one of us to sing you, "Our Camping Song."

The ninth of 'September found ten girls located
at the Yernon llouse. NYe were all Juniors. After
due inspection of the house and each other we came
to the conclusion that thc house would hold us.
The first evening was thc most important of the
year in our social activities. lYc had at least thirty
callers that evening. They came so that we would
not be homesick.
Uur matron, who was one of the teachers at the
school, had to leave us most of the day to our own
devices but we were never without a matron after
study hour began.
Our first house party took place, in our reception
room, on the twenty-first of September in honor of
a certain girl's birthday.
The mascot of this house was an Aunt Dinah doll.
She received hard treatment on several occasions.
At the end of the year the mascot was sent to one
of the girls who had gone home sick during the year.
At Christmas time we had a Christmas tree.
Everyone received a present which surely expressed
that person's hobby. Two or three girls seemed to
have a hobby of making a noise. Quite a little
rivalry was. shown among them, especially that
New Ycar's Eve we all wanted to watch the Old
Year go out and the New Year come in. One girl
stayed awake to call us at. about half past eleven.
lVhen she looked at her watch it was two o'clock.
The rest of us awoke at about seven.
Home dear little mice had a desire to visit one of
the rooms during study hour one evening. Some-
one squealed and then we heard our matron coming
up stairs. She knocked on the door and said,
Hflirls, Misswl You must be more quiet during
lYhen nine o'clock came, books were put to one
side and we had a social half hour. During this time,
most of our parties took place. It was at one of
these that a chocolate cake decorated with lavendar
candles was brought in.
The janitor did not. come to the house when
warm weather came. It was necessary to have a
fire in the kitchen range. This gave us all a chance
to build and run C?j a fire for a week.
The girls in two rooms had much enjoyment over
a certain closet that connected the rooms. The girls
in two other rooms found much pleasure could be
derived by means of a register that connected their
During the year four of our number left us. Two
teachers joined our household although one of them
stayed only two months. Two other girls joined
us for the last term of school.
The time came all too quickly for us to leave. Our
trunks were sent home the twenty-second of June
and we followed them the next day. Perhaps we
had not realized until this time, what a pleasant
year we had spent.
We were twelve in number on that eventful
September day in 1914, when with bags and bag-
gage we wended our way from t1'olleys and trains to
6 Vernon Street, to take up our abode in those
spacious rooms which were to be the place of our
habitation the coming school year.
If you should have asked us who we were, eight
of us would boldly have replied, "We are Middle
Juniors," but from the other four you possibly
might have heard, after a long tense silence, a faint
little murmur, "Wie are Juniors." Yes they were
Juniors, and 'fJolly Juniors" they soon proved to
be, for after the first. few days of adjustment and
accumulation, even though they might occasionally
be caught tucking a handkerchief out of sight, a
cheerful aspect was put on things and with "The
Team" as ringleaders, good times began in the
I said we were twelve in numbers, but only one

girls but a single night and possibilities for sport
will crop out unchallenged. These possibilities
cropped out often, perhaps too often during study
hour, from the standpoint of our house mother, for
Flirzuningharm Nurnml Srhnnl
a note of warning from the stairway would nip our
mischievous spirits in the bud.
Even though lights did go out at ten o'clock we
managed, by the aid of moonlight Zltllli other means,
to get away with a spread on New Year's Eve. It
took more than an alarm clock to start the ball
arolling but once started feven though the tempera-
ture did run lowj it didn't stop until "next year."
Those moments when we sat together thinking over
the experiences of the old year and recording in our
diaries the beginning of the new, we will long
Did the Searites believe in fresh air? VVell I guess,
yes. They got part of their out-door exercise run-
ning up Old Normal Hill to breakfast. B ut ask them
about fresh air on the night before Organic Exam.
They will say it was well to have fresh air when
preparing for that terrible ordeal-but-well never
mind the rest.
No. 6 Vernon Street was handy to the B. and YV.
car line. However, some of our girls, who had
occasional Saturday night callers from Worcester
Academy, evidently thought there was a possibility
of getting lost between the center and 6 Vernon.
There were also other callers ti. e. would-be gentle-
men callersj from such sources as Simmons College
on other Saturday evenings. Even though Harriet
was a little shy about receiving these callers, if we
helped her on a little there, once the ice was broken,
she was a good entertainer. Marjorie with her
chafing dish and conundrums was always a reliable
stand-by and Mrs. Sears parlor could be trans-
formed into most anything from a Ball Room to a
Banquet Hall, where a particularly strong flavored
cheese was a favorite delicacy.
Taking all in all-with Marion Teto entertain
us with her aerobatic stunts: the meetings held on
"Topic A" etc., when we all crowded into the little
room with the big closet at the head of the stairs,
we never lacked for sport. Even with all the hard
work put into "The Twig of Thorn" Cand it was
hard work for in our midst were the hero and hero-
inej there were lots of fun and frivolity.
Unlike "The Passing Show of 1915," 'fThe
Searite Follies of 1915" will live on and never pass.
It was tlu'ee years ago that thirteen of us first
puffed our weary way up to 66 Pleasant Street. All
of us thought it was the end of the world and won-
dered how we would ever be able to start early
enough mornings to get to school on time. Besides
the thirteen new arrivals there was one Senior and
one Middle Junior to lend dignity to the house.
That first night at dinner amidst a horrible
hullabulloo we tried in vain to connect the names
of persons of the girls from the outside houses. In
the evening Middlers and Seniors called and took
advantage of our innocence by telling us hair-raising
stories of what was before us. But for slight
exaggerations, we found these stories truel
It wasn't until we had been there two days that
we discovered we had a baby in our midst-Baby
Hazel, who was promptly given her bottle of milk
with a. hygienic nipple.
It didn't take us many weeks to learn that
lamps were not to be trusted! Go to your closet for
one minute and when you returned, like as not you
could not find your way out. Needless to say, we
soon acquired the eyes of a. cat and the ability to
scent of a dog.
We hadn't been in school long enough to become
innured to the ways of the world, when one evening
the door bell rang and were we informed that our
presence was desired in the parlor, as "Miss Nich-
olass" had called to "get acquainted."
The joys of a nice walk before a hot lunch was
ours! Dutifully and joy CH fully we hurried home
every noon to find our favorite CU dish at least four
times a week awaiting usfmacaroni-sometimes
served with tomato, sometimes cheese, sometimes

three others in their places.

At our Slam Party, held just before Christmas
Vacation one of Olll' members received Judy, a
delightful rag lialry which accompanied many of
the girls in their journeyings.
Men were great curiosities in those days, and if
one ever strayed down there, away fronI the fold,
he was treated as such, and most of the girls being
very industrious as well as members of the H. A.
Department, they practiced basting, hemming and
backstitching on the garments the men innocently
left i1I the hall while they were calling.
Coming back from vacations, filled with news and
excitement, what was our chagrin to find Betty
ensconced peacefully in one of our beds while we
were cautioned to be quiet. If we congregated in
one room to exchange confidences we were ad-
monished f'Sh-Betty's asleep."
lYe were told it was a very mysterious house, for
many a night ghostlike figures were seen flitting
about the outside of the upper story!
Un lIot days in June We greatly enjoyed the cool
lunches of sandwiches, iced tea, etc., served on the
veranda. They were well worth the walk!
All in all, I don't believe there is one of us who
would give up that first year at 66 Pleasant Street.

THE BLAKE HOUSE
Wfho will ever forget the good times that we had
at the Blake House. Seven Middle Juniors and
three Juniors were a large enough crowd to keep that
house humming and it surely did hum from the wee
small hours of the morning when we arose at dawn to
labor over the unknown methane, ethane, prohane
butane. 'Twas our usually sunshiny Mary who was
Dr. Jeckel on such occasions. But in spite of her
aversion toward the grinds it was Mary, our regular
Junior and apt pupil who studied our Organic so
faithfully that she could tell you without a moments
hesitation that an alkaloid was a nitrogenous com-
pound of a basic character.
Framingham Nnrnml Srrhnnl
Didn't we have bully times and Mary 'tis to you
we owe a lot of them for you managed to keep things
pretty lively, especially when you lost your ring
and we were in a terrible state thinking that it was
probably in the turkey carcass.
During the winter months we were very studious
with our minds bent toward Mechanical Drawing,
methods and chemistry but as tl1e signs of spring
drew near and "Jack Frost" got out of the ground
we became uneasy for the open and sought exercise.
Our principle indulgences were in the form of Tin
Fliver rides. Johnny, however, wanted to be original
and turned her thoughts toward horseback riding.
Telephone calls those spring days were frequent
occurences. Conversations varied from inquiries
as to the home lesson for the following evening to
the local retail prices of groceries and p1'ovisions.
Saturday night at the Blake House was not tl1e
veritable Framingham Normal School Saturday
night for we were studious lassies and our minds
were centered on higher things. But on Saturday
night we had men to burn-when peacefully pre-
paring for a Physiology Quiz we discerned the smell
of smoke, the house was on Ere, and the fire depart-
ment was at hand.
VVhen the excitement ofthe tire faded away, mock
funerals and scarlet fever scares followed and other
startling experiences. VVho would have ever dared
to have gone to bed without having first investi-
gated to see if Bunch was not stored away under
Lake Chauncey had its charms too. Do you re-
member the night of the June dance when we went
up to school for ice cream as some of the members
of our household were waitresses on that occasion?
Our happy year with Pa and Ma Blake ended with
a party which they gave us on the evening of
graduation. Did you ever eat such delicious ice
cream and short cake as you did that night and
wouldn't you love to live that year at 6 Worcester
Street over again? Who wouldn't vote for the
Blake House as being the ideal place for Framing-
ham girls and Mr. and Mrs. Blake just the kind of
people to make you happy.

'Tis seldom that you can get a lecturer to bring to

the other day, when lX'Ir. Howe told us to pour
olive oil down the sink sponts when shutting up the

SOME REASONS VVHY
The reasons why we should learn to cook
VVould Fill, dear friends, a fair sized book:-
1n order to preserve our health-
To part with less of our hard-earned wealth.
From the boarding-house meal in self-defense
We fly to the cook book, at much less expense.
And ohl the dear and szrcet delight
Of eating what we know is right.
Ivho knows but that at any moment
The school board will get into a foment
And issue an order that Household Arts
Must now be taught in all its parts.
Besides, in this enlightened age
VVe ought to know each step and stage
Of all the arts, nor leave out cookery
Itls just as high and fine as "bookery."
French and German, Travel and such,
Are very well, but not so much
Compared to knowledge of how to spread
A board with well-cooked meat and bread.
The bachelor girl her charm enhances
With lore like this: it swells her chances.
Vlfhat sort of chances? Better ration lf
The rest,-I leave to imagination.

We cannot go home,

And our thoughts are far away,
From the work that keeps the light aburning,
In the window of the school upon the hill.
