Our Alma Mater
Framingham, 'tis thee we honor
And to thee our anthems raise,
Till thy stately walls re-echo
All our heartfelt notes of praise.
Long our love shall steadfast be,
Falt'ring never as we tread the pathway upward,
VVith thy hand to lead the way.
Thy command we carry with us,
To the truth we all must live,
And we,ll ne'er forget thy precepts
Nor the impulse thou dost give.
Friends we've made within they gates-
Faithful, loyal, true and earnc-stAand for these
Thanks and gratitude receive.
If success should crown our striving,
And our road be bathed in light,
Or if we should tread a pathway
VVhere dull failures blur our sightg
Thou wilt be our guiding star,
Shining brightly with a blessing on our lives.

tales of "that fellow from up homef' She has a
surprisingly vast knowledge of t1'eneh warfare,
submarines, and gas masks, and seems very much
interested in the war. ,

That's Eleanora all over. Varsovienne, Os-

rors for her. She dances as well as she plays
and that's saying something, for Eleanora is a
whole jazz band herself. One of her more serious
occupations is training choruses and choirs. She
is our class baby ibetween you and me she only
weighs 98 poundsj, but she's right there w1th the
"pep." Some cruel person remarked that she
didn't see how sucli a little person could make
so much noise, but the fact remains that she can.
Those wonderful times that she has in Boston!!!

Chairman Class Day.
As you pass by room 14, Crocker, you glance
in and see an old-rose room-old-rose did I say?
XVell, yes, withi just a few suggestions of brown
Zllld bluc. Who is bending over the desk writ-
ing so ferociously? It is "K" to bc sure.. Good
old "K,', whom we all will remember flying
about from one thing to another, just bubbling
over with enthusiasm and fun. Those who know
"K" best will always associate her with the
Soire, and the hours she toiled that we might
have chferry blossoms and blue birds: and the
Middle Junior Play! NVhat reams we might write
about her untiring work behind the scenes, mak-
ing a caveland for the actors who received the
credit. Now we are awaiting with anticipation
our Class Day-which is an assured success with
"K" at the helm.

Even though "Bert" has a room way oll' in

easy to distinguish the light between the cracks
about 11.30, when all other little ones are in bed.
About noon time when "Bert" is tired, we can hear
Mil holler: "'Bert,, sleep nights." NVhen it comes
to a good time, "Bertt' is always ready-why she
would go to Mass. Aggie in a few minutes notice
as she knows it means a good time.

Does she seem quiet? Look again. You will
Iind a strength of purpose, and an abundance of
1'un just beneath that quiet manner. Think ol'
the com1'adeship we missed, those of us who did
not Iind l1er out until our last year. Once know-
ing her ever ready to be a good pal. This girl
is athletic. She is a fine swimmer, but the mud
hole is rather narrow to demonstrate long, full
strokes, eh, Marion! Her dignity-cooking cap
and all cannot fool us, for have we not seen
her "slam,' balls on the tennis courtg and yes,
honest, turn a somersault over a basket ball
tliven the faculty can vouch for it.7 She held
the ball however, and our team won the game.
Remember our captain!

BATTLES, BEATRICE "Bee"
13 Dilla St., Milford, Mass.
Some people say that every picture tells a
story, but this one of "Bee" dom-sn't, in fact none
eould. You have to see her, work with her, to
appreciate her broad radiant smile, her con-
tagious laugh, for "Bee" is our optimist! She
always looks at things through rose-colored
glasses. After writing a line or two in her note
hook, she says, "XVell, I guess we've nothing else
to do for tomorrow," and goes off dancing. She
eomes to school in the morning fresh as a lark.
and makes brilliant reeitations, letting go a full
charge of enormous words! "Bee" is a good
scout and we only hope she will keep her prom-
ise to teaeh a year.

"Seeds are better than words are,
Actions mightier than boastings!"
Behold we have Myrtis, the smallest girl in
our elass fgoing aroundl. She is also the class
inventor and often keeps us laughing with vivid
descriptions of her latest ideas. This tall,
slender maiden is quiet, yes-but not lacking in
fun. She always has an answer ready. Do you
remember the night we went carol singing and
Mrs. H- said: "If only the girls would let me
know what nightthey are coming to sing carols
I would have a hot drink for them"? Myrtis
replied: "I aln sorry, but this is our last year."
BENSSON, EDITH "Benny"
Y. W. C. A.
Edith is one of our shining stars. Shi: al-
ways hands out just what the teachers are look-
ing for while we sink weakly back in our chairs
mutttering, "How does she do it?" She may
appear quiet but remember the old saying, "Still
waters run deep," in other words, not a few of
us have seen her otherwise. Owing to l3enny's
sweet disposition and good nature she is one of
the popular girls ol' the class. She has made
many firm friends among us. Q

BETTS, MATTIE "Fuzzy"
26 Scott St., Attleboro, Mass.
Y. W. C. A.
"A maiden never bold
Of spirit so still and quiet, that her motions
Blush at herself."
It takes quite a bit of digging to get ac-
quainted with Mattie, but those girls who
haven't dug have missed something. She is a
sweet conscientious little lady, whom everyone
falIs'in love with as soon as she knows her.
Mattie certainly has a terrible time controlling
the muscles of her face whenever anything
funny happens. And does she blush? Itll say
BORDEN, ALICE "Al"
235 Union Ave.. Framingham, Mass.
Y. W. C. A.
"Last but not least." Alice did not join us
until late in September but "Better late than
never." She is a bright girl and it did not take
her long to catch up with her class. "Al" is an
ardent sullnragette and stands up for the rights
of women. Some day we expect that she will
be famous for her daring deeds and strong
bicepe muscle. Her aim is pretty good too,
both physically and mentally. XVe all hope she
will succeed in getting the little country school-
house in the Berkshires, but as to the 214950 a

Il' it's a generous girl you're looking for-
step right tliis way. Or perhaps you need a jolly
companion to skip to towng whatever the day,
rain or shine. I know a girl who's always
ready, helpful and kind, who drives dull care
away with her cheerful banter and smile. She
keeps her door wide open-and when it comes
to feeds you'll always find that box from home
and the market on the cape. To tease her is
quite easy but make her mad you can'tg she'll
answer with her wit and quickly win the day.
These are just a few ot' the virtues of Olives'
room-mate-"that Bourne girl!"

"Laughing words and many gigglesf'
Has anyone ever seen Eleanor Breed look
cross? No! but we have all heard her giggle.
The members of Senior B will never forget the
day she was polishing the dining-room iloor,
with a supervisor near at hand. For all her
giggling she managed to get it done, and it
was well done, too. Eleanor is a conscientious
worker and a very good cook. VVe hope that
this talent in the culinary line will not be
wasted, but if there is one who will be bene-
lited by it, we have yet to learn about him.
BUCKLEY, ETTA "Hefty"
151 Massachusetts Ave., Arlington, Mass.
Etta will always stand out in our memories
as a good natured, happy-go-lucky, girl. NVe
all know that she is often heard arguing with
people, but t'1ose who really know her are well
aware that she usually argues just for the fun
of it. Last summer at canning school she fell
when she was carrying two jars of peaches and
neither of the two was broken. How did she
do it? NVe wonder. Etta has been a mighty
line leader of the orchestra for two years. She
has worked ha1'd and the orchestra has become
a necessary addition to our play days.

Slide-two-three-point" and so on. at odd
moments, for Annie aspires to be a "gym"
teacher, or at least give private lessons in
aesthetic dancing. It may be a long, hard
road but we believe "she'll get there yet." In
the meantime, she is enjoying herself by study-
ing hygiene when she doesn't have it the next
day and not studying it when she doesg also
planning to get the car after school that the
"good-looking eonductorn is on, and, we don't
doubt, using her dimples in a way that only
Annie knows. And yet she nearly cries with
vexation when someone tells her they hear that
sheis engaged! But then, Annie never takes
men seriously, indeed, the only thing she does
take seriously is "gym," as I said before. In
other things she can put up as good a "hluiT"
as anyone, and what others can't do, "get away"
with it. How d'you do it, Annie? But Annie
onlv dimples. It is a secret process. .No
doubt the dimples help. I wish I had clun-
ples like Annie.

"They ah!" XVho said it? None less than
little Merle expressing her views on the pros
or cons ol' some weighty subject-anything
from the horribly long, tight skirts, to the cal-
oric value of watercress and always withg the
same determination whether it be work or play.
If you should wander by her door during study
hour Knot that any ol' the illustrious Crocker
girls would be out of their roomsj, you would
invariably catch a glimpse of Merle seated at
her desk ,busily studyingfor writing letters.
Have you ever noticed a change in that prim
little lady when Friday comes? XVith a spotted
veil and a picture hat any handsome youth
might well lose his heart. "XVell probably,"
she would say-but the girls all tell us that
whatever Merle does is complete in itself-and
thi? reconnnendation shoud be sullieient in it-

CHAISSON, STELLA "Mam'zelle"

Five feet one. Plump. Face glowing with
happiness. Lips always smiling. Eyes ever
twinkling. Who- is it? "Mam'zelle Chaisson,
oui." I don't pretend to describe her, you'll just
have to see her to realize why she's such a favor-
ite and a sure cure for the blues. Conscientious,
too. NVhy, that's her all over, for with Stella
lessons always come first, and believe me, her
apperccptive mass is nothing to scorn. She's
got it stocked with all sorts of "ah-deas" ready
to pop out any minute. She's always ahead of
the gameg indeed, one day shle was four months

Hilda likes company, which fact accounts
for her spending her Saturdays Hlld Sundays
in Framingham. It was real convenient to be
sent to Milford on Fridays! for Practice School
for then she could go home and get back to
Framingham the same night. Hilda says there
are no attractions at home and when asked if
she had a pleasant vacation, her answer was al-
ways-"Yes, but I didn't do anything-on pleas-
ant days I went for walks down by the Charles
river all by my lonesome." Even so, Hilda is

CHIRGWIN, RUTH ANNE
Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard.
"Some think the world is full of fun and
frolic, and so do I."
Ruth hails from Edgartown in quaint old
Martha's Vineyard. Her life is one happy song
for she is never afflicted with the blues. Because
of this she has won the good-will of her class-
mates. She does not often study, but when she
does, she goes to it with a will and accomplishes
wonders. We really wonder what would happen
if she studied all the time! VVith a faculty for
doing things at the last minute, she always gets
there in the end. Bacon's essay on "Love" has
interested her to no small degree. She seriously
questions whether love really exists or is merely
an infatuation. Dancing and diving are her spe-
cial hobbies. XVe hold our breath when sheper-
forms her handsprings or makes spectacular
dives. In these she is unrivalled. Ruth's am-
bition is to teach in Honolulu. XVe anticipate
a great future for "Chirg" with her charming

Evelyn sat, swiftly, screnely, steadfastly

fied. Yet never, 11ever, a g1'ind. N0 need to he.
N'Vhat a wonderful juggler,-to drop so many
dishes one night at dinner, and still that same
serene smile. Yet, when time begins to roll by,
and the assembly seats feel more and more un-
luxurious, then we know where to look for signs
ol' patience! And in French class, too, our prize
pupil. Evelyn, who speaks from experience,
advises Juniors not to try to draft patterns while
coming down with the measles at the same time.
ln the years to come, when we are standing be-
fore our porcelain sinks fand unlike Evelvn, not
spilling the dishpan on ourselvesj, it will cheer
us up to think of Evie and of her timely re-
lnark in H. A., "do that all?"

Mary can be selected as the most care-free
girl in our midst. She is the happiest away
from studies, alone with her embroidery, ,or a
book. If we hear, "that's Mary playing," We
need no better summons for a lively sing in the
living room, or a real concert in our hall. XVha't
our musical affairs would have been like with-
out her at tl1e piano, we dare not ask. Her
musical ability takes l1igl1 llOI'l0l'S. It even helps
her in class-while the 1'6St of us have to rack
our brains for a memory selection, she finds
no dilliculty, as long as the keyboard is at hand.

Chris is one of the more quiet girls in the

quainted with her. Then you find out she is al-
ways ready for a good time and that she is a
mighty good sport. Speaking of sports, it would
be a pretty good guess what Chris's favorite
sport is. How about the time she spends tread-
ing letters and the clippings they contain. Do
you suppose she answers as often? If she did,
we rather think she couldn't get along in classes
as well as she does.

Dottie had the advantage over the rest of
us in having a whole year's experience in the

so she knew the ropes and has bee11 leading

Guppy hails from Melrose and if they're all
like her we are thoroughly convinced that it
must he some place. She seems to appreciate
her week ends, no doubt owing to the fact that
she has some "m-in-nun wild times" which she
sometimes tells us less fortunate ones about.
During Guppy's temporary exile in Marlboro she
beguiled the weary hours spent on the car by
making friends with the conductors who cheered
her long and rough journeys with apples and
neccos. But seriously, we look to Guppy as our
star story-teller and toast maker and look for-
ward to a clever authoress.

1 Highland Street, Marlboro, Mass.
"Who is the class grind?" NVell if you value
your life don't answer that question with the
name Agnes King. Our friend Agnes, for some
unknown C?J reason has a great aversion to
those two words. If anyone intimates in her
presence that Agnes should make a claim to
that euphonious title, there is a great deal of
pushing and running for a few minutes. In jus-
tice to her let it be said that she is not my idea
of a g1'ind and should not be known as such.
All the commuters have found her to be the
most obliging of girls as far as helping us with
our lessons was concerned. XVhen she first came
to us in September, 1917, she was sedate and
sober, but a certain young lady has had a bad
effect on her :md now Agnes has a strong ten-
dency towards frivolity.

About three years ago a new Ford was in-

was from this town that Helen eaine, and made
her debut in F. N. S. in the fall of ,16, so as to
acquire a better knowledge of how to become
clear, concise. accurate, complete, and logical.
Helen is some singer. If you don't believe it,
just come down the corridor on second floor in
Crocker and you will hear her melodious voice
rising above the noise of the rest of the girls, and
even after 10 o'clock, when all "gentlewomen"
should be asleep. All seriousness aside, Helen
is a real "shark,' for while all of us are studying
most of the time, she devotes only the night be-
fore "exams" on Freddy,s lectures, and then
wears a solemn expression the next day because
she only gets "A."

accomplishments. And when she makes that
chocolate cake we'll admit that we have to hand
it to her. And then, who can forget the wild
communications flying between here and Camp
Devens while Gaby successfully roped in about
twelve men for our Middle Junior Man Dance.
N0 one but Gaby could have carried through
such a project without having a slip anywhere
along the line. Taking it all in all she is a great
scout, good company, and a girl that any of us
would like for a friend.
May very rarely honored us by her presence
at school. XVhen she did appear it was usually
just in time for lunch. This did not prevent
her from dumfounding us in class by getting up
and making a brilliant recitation while the rest
of us were looking blank. This was especially
true in History. How May accomplished this
was a seven day's wonder to us when we knew
that she had probably been to no less than three
dances during the week. They say "XVonders
will never cease," and it was certainly true
when May was with us.

Marion is one who is true to her work, her
word, and her friends. NYe shall remember her
as a girl "always on the job," as she never left
undone anything which she once attempted task
any H. A. Seniorj. Marion's pastime seems to be
chasing dirt. For this reason she might well
pass for "Old Dutchf' During our first year
here, Marion was fortunate enough to live at the
'?5lorm" the latter part of the year, so we did
not really come to know her until our Middle-
years. She took part in our Middle-Junior Play,
"The Piper," and played the part of old Ursula
to perfection. Off the stage Marion plays the
part of a "patient" quite successfully.

when the order of her room is invaded. And
she doesn't like bangs. Can't you imagine her

In other words "Dodie." Doesn't that name
fit to a "T"? Small but not slight, with curly
hair and a slightly lifted nose, which can go in
the air, but of couse seldom does. "Dodie" came
to us a little girl, sweet, young and timid, but
she leaves us the same helpful, loving and sym-
pathetic Dodie with added dignity and poise.
One may hear in Crocker Hall when the evening
mail is given out:
"Florida?,' some one inquisitively asks.
"NOX, comes the reply from the disgusted
half laughing young lady, "Georgia!"
One attribute we all admire in Dodie is her
ever faithfully kept cash account, never has a
penny gone astray for Dodie always looks at one
twice before she spends. I he1'eby conclude that
"Economy" should be Dodie's middle name. Never
mind Dodie "a penny saved is a penny earned."

ever, do not think that she isnit right "there',

she keeps that ever-bubbling store of knowl-
edge. Does anyone ever remember hearing l1e1'
say, "I dontt known? Unanimous. No! She

good start with Mr. H. backing her, and an ap-
pointment already for Johns Hopkins. We wish
her the best of success, and know she will win.
Even Nvestboro did not frighten or daunt her.
Although Concord Junction, we understand, is
not a large place, "Peg" is going to put it on the

get acquainted with her until she decided to
live up here in 17 with "Boney."

Grace is one of the strongest supports of the
traditional dignity of F. N. S. Brought up in
the exclusive air of Nobseot and the Practice
School, we from the outside world find Grace
positively refreshing. Her charming conscience
we all enjoy and admire, for little white sins
that we think nothing of, Grace abhors, and
isn't afraid to say so.
Itm afraid, however, that F. N. S has had
a deteriorating elfeet on Gracious, for she has
been heard to audibly express a desire to do
something shocking, but she hasn't done it yet.
I suppose it's because she is on her dignity at
Southboro where she simply ignores those rude
children who were heard to say "Oh gee" in
her presence. She is dignity, honesty, outspok-
enness itself and who doesn't admire her for it?

She is from Saxonville and I think it is custom-
ary "over there" to rise early. Grace is an all
around good teacher, and all her pupils worship
her, but I fear when she has a school of her
own that the pupils won't have much of a chance
to become acquainted with her. You ask why?

The H. A. Juniors who shipped into
school in September of 1917, started on
the road of destiny as dutiful Middle
Juniors on Sept. 11, 1918. Needless to
say, we all started full of ambition, with
the idea that all would not be play.
As a class, we had our thumbs in every
pie. The first thing given was a faculty
reception to the Juniors, at which we
served. In order to acquaint the Juniors
with the X. P. K., we gave them a series
of afternoon teas. Our class was well
represented in the Harvard and Yale
game, the United War Work Campaign
and the Christ111as Party. We were
proud to have Alice McCool elected pres-
ident of the Y. VV. C. A. and other mem-
bers of our class chosen for the cabinet.
In February, the wisteria bloomed!
Why? Oh, for the Man Dance! The air
was filled with cries-"My man can't
come." "Let's see your dress." "You're
wanted on the phone." "Special Delivery!"
until the last couple was ushered in.
The dance was all we hoped for, but 11:30
came so soon that many of us lost our
dance with somebody's "Bobby" or
"Simp." We haven't forgotten the morn-
ing after, either!
Our time now is spent in getting
ready for the class play, "The Man Who
Stayed at Home."
On the whole, the year has been a
pleasant one but we'll never forget the
chem. charts, drafts, and H. A. recita-
From morning till evening on the
eleventh of September, two hundred and
one juniors laboriously made their way
up Normal Hill. But when we reached
the school we found that the breeze at
the top of the hill was well worth the
climb. Many suit cases and traveling
bags were bulging with almost forgot-
ten necessities for our longed-for stay at
Framingham Normal School.
In the middle of the summer most of
us had received a letter from a member
of the Normal School Young Women's
Christian Association, giving us a hearty
welcome to the school. We newcomers
sincerely appreciated the smile and
greeting which came from girls to whom
we had not been formally introduced,
for it showed. the spirit of friendliness
and hospitality which we have noticed
throughout the year.
Just after we had started well on our
way for a good year of work, the spectre
"Fluey,' appeared in this part of the
country, and hence the school was closed
for four weeks. When school reopened
we all returned but one who had been
taken away by the disease.
Shortly after our return the class or-
ganized, and elected Dorothy Hirst, pres-
ident, Esther Perry, secretary, and Bertha
Thompson, treasurer. The first good
time to drive away the blues was a "get-
acquainted party" given by the Y. W. C.
A. Dancing was a big feature which
helped us to become acquainted with one
another. Many games were enjoyed, one
of which was directed by Dr. Chalmers,
and kept us in a roar of laughter. WVe
labelled ourselves with our names and at
the end of the evening found it was
quite a stunt to remember the names of
those with whom we had talked.
After all the danger of influenza was
over, the faculty gave the Junior Class
a reception. The hall was prettily dec-
orated with large plants and ferns which
served as a background for the receiv-
ing line. During the afternoon our
school orchestra played, and refreshments
were served by the Middle Juniors. This
reception gave the Juniors and new mem-
bers of the faculty a fine chance to be-
One pleasant afternoon in the late
fall we were invited to make our ac-
quaintance with the X. P. K. which was
in gala dress for the occasion, both Har-
vard and Yale banners reposing peace-
fully in the same room. Fragrant tea,
crackers and peanuts were enjoyed while
victrola music invited others to drop in
for a few minutes.
The year sped on so quickly that May
arrived before we could get our forces
collected to return the parties which had
enlivened our week-ends at the first of
the year. During April our entertain-
ment committee got their heads together
and planned a Victory Party, which was
given on the Friday evening of the 16th
of May, all of the school invited. The
subject of entertainment was a series of
tableaux taken from the Victory Loan
posters. Our orchestra made up of some
accomplished members of the class fur-
nished music for dancing.
As the class of 1921 is the largest
class that has ever entered Framingham,
we hope to make it the very best.
The History of the Regular Seniors
June, 1917! Graduation, roses, carna-
tions, lights, orchestras, new dresses, pho-
tographs, excitement, and feeling of im-
portance all out of proportion to one's
size. A wrist watch perhaps, a diploma
of course, and a leave taking of old lol.
S. friends. Why in June we were the
most important people in the town.
September, 1917! The eleventh to be
exact. A gay day, a suppressed feeling
of excitement again. An awe! A feeling
of importance? Perhaps we are from
henceforth for two years to be students
in the oldest Normal School in Ameri-
ca. When we graduate from there as
Seniors we shall be really, truly teachers,
wiith a diploma having the state seal, and
with a position in sight where we will be
mistress of all we survey tour school-
room! and proud possessor of S4600 per
annum. Who wouldn't feel important?
Those never to be forgotten first few
days! Chapel first, we all managed to
find the assembly hall and get there by
8:59 or 9:00 at the latest, because every-
one else was headed that way and we
just followed the crowd. But those other
rooms! How elusive they seemed! Our
feet seemed to take us to the wrong one
every time, to the intense, but carefully
hidden amusement of the Seniors and
our very evident confusion. The place
was a labyrinth, stairs where we thought
doors ought to be, and doors where we
had figured on finding stairs! But with
the marked intelligence that 1919 has
shown right along, we soon got straight-
ened out and all went merrily.

After a time we got our "bearings',
and got somewhat acquainted through
the kindly efforts of the Seniors who
sweetly deigned to smile on us, and Puri-
tianally invited us "Wild Indians" to a
party, while the Middle Juniors seized on
us as good ones to try their X. P. K.
stunts on, and so gave us a tea, while
the faculty invited us in new and strange
things under the prosaic names of geog-
raphy, history, science, and gardening,
and all the rest of those subjects, we
would have to teach when we had a
"school of our own." The very thought
of teaching these things when we seemed
Framingham State Normal School 59
to know so little about them, made us
gasp. Then to prove that they were
really human even if they did know so
much, they gave us a war party and
presto! We were really at home.
In the meantime in order to have a
realy "classy" feeling and following the
usual custom, we organized as a class
with Ruth Kunhardt, an H A., as
president, and one of us Regulars, Phyl-
lis Winkler, as secretary and treasurer.

ports, her good natured drawl, with a

After 'tcoming out" in F. N. S. society,
by organizing our class, we decided to
begin entertaining, as the upper classes
had been so kind to us, so we began on
the Seniors. After much discussion, de-
bating, deciding and undeciding, it was
voted to give them a yachting party, so a
yachting party it was! It went oft' splen-
didly, all smooth sailing tto be nautical
as betits a sailing partyl, and everyone
had the "time of their lives? listening to

being refreshed with refreshments. Not

and bloomers disappearing around cor-

came out on top, but Harvard will turn
the tables next year twe hopeb.
Next on our list to entertain were
the Middle Juniors. And the only man
at the party was very particular who his
wife should be. All went well and the

With report cards comes a change of
program. Half of us beseiged the other
half to lind out the degree of ditliculty
of the new subjects we were to have
next half, if the teachers were "easy", if
there was much outside work, if we had
lesson plans to make out, if we had to

warnings, cautions, assurances and the
like, that we decided we learn by expe-
rience, so we marched into our new
classes ready for the worst. VVe got it.
"When duty whispered low, 'Thou
1nust,"' our class replied "all right, we'll
each obey duty 86 cents worth," so when
it was our duty to buy a liberty bond we
bought, taxing each member 86 cents.

Whittemore Memorial gateway, we gave
our Liberty bond for the purpose of

when gardening came along! To delve in
the rich, brown loam with one's hands:
to remove superllous impediments such
as stones, sticks, witch grass, etc.g to
handle the cunning rakes and spades, to
feel the friendly sun beating down on
one's neck, to plant the queer
seeds, to see them spring up profusely
in spots, and lie dormant in other spots,
to weed said plants with said rakes and
hands tmostly handsl, with said sun
gently warming said neck in said friendly
manner, and then get up next morning
with a queer sensation i11 said neck talso
pains in other points of compassb, such
are the rural pleasures of gardening.
But really, after such trilles as bugs,
weeds, and pains, it was a great satis-
faction to look at one's own patch with
its long straight t?J rows of green
things, and hear Mr. Meier say "Well done,
thou good and faithful gardener? Mr.
Meier was always most kind and consid-
erate, except in the times he chose to
mark us on our ability as Utillers of the
soil,', for he generally selected just the
afternoon when we had decided it was
too hot to pull weeds and went home
early leaving our gardens in a deplor-
able condition. If the quality of our fu-
ture positions depended on the appear-
ance of our gardens, Itm afraid some of
us would have to select some new field
of labor to earn our living.
Then came Field Day, a real one too,
It sure was great. Visions of our ability
in baseball instantly arose, but we put
them aside, and prudently decided to
leave that out of the list of our achieve-
ments as athletes. Well, it was a great

for, longed for, hoped for, for a year. If
you had been around at this time you
would have noted that our intellectual
brows were knit in a responsible way,
and although we may have forgotten our
professional attitude for a moment, we
soon found, or were reminded, that we
were students of Framingham Normal,
the first Normal School in America, and
"teachers-to-be." The first morning of the
new school year found us seated on the
right hand side of the hall, as befitted
Seniors, and in our old places in the
centre seats, sat the newcomers, the Jun-
iors of 1919. We smiled complacently on
our attention on

comes at the "beginning of the endf' for
B's the "middle of the end" and for C's
at the "end of the end," but it comes in-
evitably. lt is looked forward to with
shivery anticipation, it is both longed
for and dreaded. There, under the eye
of the teacher who knows just where the
introduction should end, and the presen-
tation should begin, who knows just
what question to ask, when to ask it
and whom to ask, we seek to enlighten
that portion of the American youth who
is-what shall I say?-fortunate enough
to have one of us for a practice teacher.
We prepare lesson plans. We arrive at
school the next morning with fear and
trembling, we feverishly repeat our first
question over and over to ourselves, we
rise, the children look expectantly tow-
ard us, and happy are we if we can re-
member that first question-or any other.

some of her thoughts after school. I have

about practice school, and I forgot to say
we organized a class with Olive Foster,
president, Phyllis Winkler, secretary,
aid Dorothy Carter, treasurer. Where
could we have found a better group of
oflicers to lead us through the busy year?
The most excitng matter and one of
great importance was the choosing of
our class rings and pins. Nearly every
one wanted rings, so we sent for samples.

design and presto! the inevitable wom-

rough road of teacherdom.
H. A. HISTORY
In a few short months our diplo-
mas will no longer be tentatatative, and
we shall have reached another big "J. Q.
P." Before we leave we are here to tell
you all about ourselves, not as others see
us, but as we see ourselves, and others,
for these three years. They say history
repeats itself, and that there is nothing
new under the sun. That may be so, for
there have always been H. A. classes.
Yet there was never one just like ours.
Like Gaul, we were first divided into
three parts: A class, B division, and also
C division,-C division being sans French,
but avec. Eng. Lit.
So it was three years ago that we
first met together, and Mr. VVhittemore
called the roll. Then we went down to
23. That was before we had copied
rules, had recited for shuffled order of
cards, had tried to cook without conser-
vatism or the spilling of flour, and be-
fore we had been Housekeeners I, II, III
and IV. By our tin plates! but we did
learn a lot our Junior year.
The first days of the school went by.
In the meanwhile, we had begun to
learn that there are such things in this
world as Work, good hard work and also
VVorry. Busy, we surely were, from one
week to another, spending fearful hours
in Chem. Lab. CCan you not see Sammy,
rat-tattling and dreaming into space, or
Esther writing letters, or Etta fainting,
or industrious M11 during extra experi-
Yet we learned to love our work.
How could we help it with everything
so new and interesting? There was seww
ing. VVe really had never done any be--
fore. VVe learned how to baste and how
to hem,-first, the bags, green, blue, and
linen color tNote: The green has not
worn very welll. Next, we made those
famous aprons, not forgetting to cut a
true bias, leaving no knots, which would
show when garment was held up to
light. And the joys of drafting! Also of
standard underwear! By the way, an
average-sized apron tbelonging to M. Mc-
Lellanl, measured since shrinking, 29-I
inches of hemming, and since there is
an average of 5 stitches in 11, inch of
hemming, such an apron has 5,880 stitches.
Physics we had in Room 3, and our
first bitter-sweet taste of the teaching
profession, the first lesson being on the
ice cream freezer. Shall we ever forget
the little laws we had in that course,
when we visited the engine room, the
attic, and also went into 23 in the ca-
pacity of calm observers? On another
tour, one day, we went "downt th'
House," and learned all about the hot
water heating system, and a splendid way
to start the fire up easy in the a. m.
Gym was great fun. The program
was to precipitate ourselves into our

and wearing only black tics, stand in our
places for the roll call. How we marched,
and how we danced, and later, how we

dismissed we either took or escaped the
showers, depending upon our degree of
laziness, and whether we had forgotten
our bathing caps.
Oooooo, it's hot! Eeeeee it's cold!
VVhat could be more exciting than a

Hungry besides, form such a strenuous

Time flies, and it did our Junior year.
Exams came, and then it was with min-
gled feeling that we watched the nost-
man when we were home on vacation.
After that. the time flew all the faster,
until finally came June.
Graduation time of our Junior Year is
one which we shall not forget. For il'
is our great honor to have been Mr.
XYhittemore's last entering class. to have
known him, and to have loved him as if
he were our own father, and we were
sorry indeed to have him leave us.
So, finally, when we had naid our
chem. hills, returned our locker keys.
and had packed our trunks. we went

MIDDLE JUNIOR YEAR
Middle Juniors! Only too soon we
drew our room numbers in the office of
the New Dorm. All together. at last!
First, we unpacked,-down in the trunk
room, carrying our chattels perhaps un
to second. and then down on first. East
YVing. Oh, the joys of dormitory life!
Study hour, you know, from seven to
nine, which on Thursday nights was the
time to get our laundry ready. Nine to
nine-thirty was the time to visit our
best friends, and to find out what the
physiology lesson was, and baths if you
could get a tub. By nine-thirty to ten.
we were all in our rooms, half in bed,
and by ten o'clock completely retired for
the night, with lights out.
None of us look back to this time in
our lives without more or less pain.
Many things were tried out on us, as
war recipes, box outlines, and a man
dance. If we had not had to spend so
many hours in attending class we could
have had more time to "do" mechanical
drawing, drafting and dressmaking, tex-
tiles, advanced cookery, organic chem-
istry, advanced chemistry of foods, not
forgetting Class Day physiology. Educa-
tional psychology methods. English,
French and gym and music, extra.
If you would know any more of our
fate as Middle Juniors, you may find an
account in A division's nrivate history
tthat worst divisionl. lt came from
their hearts. Speaking of divisions, we
were still three. B was the spoiled
child! and B was also the division which
pulled together so bee-eautifullvg while
C, like Kipling's cat, "walked by him-
self and all places were alike to him."
Once upon a time there were fifty-
three girls who had the Right Attitude
and who loved their XVork. and had out-
grown being Middle Juniors. They went
into Crocker, where they met with self-
government, lighting system, creaky
stairs, handy mail box. a few new rugs,
real doors to the hath tubs. and cock-
roaches tthat is what an H. A. Senior
hasli, also a pay station.
According to custom in this fall of
1918, A division went out teaching. while
B had to stay at home and "shift" for
themselves. Hardly were the napers re-
moved from the shelves of the serving
room. and hardlv were the anrons for
the Children at Milford all cut out. when
came that Epidemic followed by hasty
nacking, vacation, and letters from L. L.
VV. every Monday. Since then. many of
the "young ladies" have had the flu and
lost their hair.
Back again. began life in earnest, all
Thursdays being rain, all Fridays being
snow. Many an evening was spent in
telling how Elsie Carboni sanff during
sewing class, how the pool table was
hard for the children to cook on at
Twombley House and all the trials of the
J. M. S. "She visited me all day-" "She
only stayed a few minutes-Yes-Yes."
"She brought me home in her automo-

bile." "She did not like it because I
taught sugar cookery."
On Tuesday evening, there used to ap-
pear on the living room curtain a little
note tone of those extrasl, and then the
teaching section went into the dining
room, and wereftaught to be as "wise as
serpents and as the harmless as doves."
In the meantime everyone was making
gallons of agar with Birdie's help, under
twenty pounds pressure: and hats and
dresses with more or less individual
guidance, at ten per cent discount, and
cut several miles on that same true bias,
it being good form to be familiar with
Susie. At the same time, they learned
the prevention of malnutrition, how to
hold it, all about the little yellow chart,
how to do problems. The chocolate
cream one really had a catch. Oh you

Motto: "Great oaks from little acorns
One day, at the end of our Junior year,
we acorns, the original Division A tsee
list of charter members, at present pre-
served in an olive bottle under a certain
pine treel. decided to have a picnic, to
organize, and to keep it all secret. It hap-
pened on June 13, 1917. VVithout planning
we enjoyed a similar affair the next year,
and to our surprise on June 13th. Can
you Wonder that we hope the student
activities committee will give us that
day this year.
Violet Hill, June 13, 1917.
It seems ages since the first time we
ever met, our Division A. How big the
assembly hall looked then and so many
people in it. Our division was forced to
get what chairs we could from the Biol-
ogy room, and strew ourselves in incon-
venient places along the room.
Those iirst few days we were made to
open our eyes to several things. one of
them being that we were in a State in-
stitution, and must furnish even our pen-
cils. But to come back to where we be-
gan. l,et's see. Oh, didn't the faculty
all look funny! Didn't we all look sol-
emn! Soon, however, came a litte re-
action, and even when we crossed the
bridge of sighs on Wednesday A. M.,
bound for Drawing and Chem., we little-
realized into what depths of desparate
dispair we were soon to plunge!
Now with regard to our studies, it was
self-evident that Chem. took most of the
time we had to spare, and next, it seems
hard to decide.-H. A., I gll8SS. There we
had such a spicy time that we got a pret-
ty good idea of what was coming to us in
our after lives. To get along, You had to
know your lesson, how to build smoke-
less fires, how not to spill, how to hurry.
and above all, to "please come this wayv
at moments critical to our omelets.
Physics. 'What a restful, quiet hour in
comparison, and to hear the soothing
tones of one kind, considerate teacher.
He filled us with pulleys and pumps. do's
and dont's and items from Cherryville.
of a Division
Drawing sounds easy, but it get lierccr
and iierccr,-until at last in desperation,
we voted unanimously to forget or
else not to understand what the lesson
Sewing was not bad. A sort of elo-
cution lesson. The course would be bet-
ter if it did not include button holes,
hemming, washing, and ironing.
French soon came to have a different
meaning to us. Instead of idioms and
irregular verbs, we had Madam S., and her
English. "Now have I told you about
it, or haven't I?" The best prescription
for the dear innocent pupils in general, is
to be on time. Be polite. Have some-
thing very interesting to discuss for three
minutes. Look pleasant, arrange arms,
expression, and limbs in a lady-like, at-
tentive attitude. Beware of "wells," "fel-
lows," and Browning's poems.
NVith regard to the dept. of Physical
Education. Here our teacher was voeif-
erous on what was the keynote of the en-
tire student body toward us. In a word,
we were the worst division. As far as
Gym. and H. A. were concerned, their
ideas were not so far from being right.
Biology came to us as a sort of extra,-
free, you know, and no charges. At the
end, we had got the notion pretty well,
from Pleurococcus to Cockroaches. -
And now we are going to part,-our
dear Div. A. After a long hard year of
either going back and forth in incon-
venient cars, or else living up here in in-
How hard we all worked together,
and how hard we might have worked
when we didn't! Yet it has been a pretty
happy year for us all, and we have
learned to love each other's little idio-
Violet Hill, June 13, 1918.
It was muggy in Hades that afternoon.
In fact it always is muggy there, being
such a damp, hot place. Even Charon
was grumbling between the trips in his
motor boat back and forth across the
Styx. Those Stygian waters are not what
they used to be, and in-coming shades
get a wrong impression of what life at
Hades really stands for. For now-a-days
some of the faster girls, who live along
the Riverside, have introduced canoes:
and Dorothy Murdock, Doris Nelson. and
Margaret Sampson, paddle up and down,
until poor old Charon is nearly giddy.
But those poor girls are not to be won-
dered at. For they have lost all their
faculties save one, and that is the faculty
On this particular day. though, Hades
was just muggy from habit, and Charon
was only grumbling from habit. All the
rest of that illustrious world was in a
most intense commotion. For this was
to be the culmination of the festivities
given bv the smart set of the under world.
Being all millionaires in their own right,
there had been no end of pleasnre-mak-
ing. Mrs. Noah had hard work chaperon-
ing all the skating parties down on the
Pyrex rink. Oueen Elizabeth. Xantipne,
and Mrs. Pankehurst had chummed to-
gether and given a house nartv: while
Samuel Jonson. Goldsmith. Dr. Chalmers
and Mr. Cokell had given a pink tea.
And now the normal shades were to
Hive a dinner party, and on the house-
boat. too. Any other information may be
obtained from J. K. Bangs. Great Dre-
Darations. The normal shades felt that
it was to be their golden opportunity as
a means of introducing themselves. In-
vitations had been written out in Helen's
vreen hand. Onlv those who knew
beans were invited. as the following:
Ralph W. Emerson. Mrs. D-. Mrs. Ladd.
Billy Sunday, the Tuskeegee Singers, and
a deputy commissioner. Mil Martin and
Evelyn waited on table at this dinner
party, while Helen Lebbossiere, true to
her name, was head waitress. Port, as
usual, received the guests. VVhile they
were waiting for Sam and Gladvs to fin-
ish setting the table, Port did a Hawaiian
dance. Mrs. Ladd remarked that even the
"chigs and pickensn would appreciate
Finally, Mil Shay announced the din-
ner and they all filed into the dining-
room. Being on a house boat, it was a
unique affair and worthy of description.
The table was covered with a beautiful
asbestos cloth, with a double-damask ef-
fect of mechanical drawings, around the
edge of which had been knit a purple
border of yarn, by Dot Leonard. In the
centre of the table was a large vase of
Lillyofthedorm flowers, the stalky vari-
ety. The minutest details had been ar-
ranged for. For example, Matty had
agreed to stand between the kitchen and
dining-room, with her mouth open, to
catch any flies which might happen in.
The only flaw during the dinner was
when the Normal baby, Dodie, came
thumping in her slippers, with her mouth
wide open. It seems that in trying to talk
she had dislocated it, and could converse
only with her eyebrows. Among the dishes
served were cleaning solution soup, flan-
nel-patch pancakes, sauce at la Evelvn,
Myernated beans .served in Chilsonian
style, Pork cute lets served on alibis,
mashed "spuds" seasoned with VVorcestcr-
shire sauce and struts, S. Ice, hot-house
cakes, etc.. and extract of Fiunan haddy
coffee with whipped cream of vitriol.
After the last course, the guests and
hostesses adjourned to the main deck.
where Helen Lebbossiere's B. P. biscuits
had been arranffed for the people to sit
on. Here a little entertainment had been
arranged. Gladys Silver sang a sonff.
"Shine on, oh Silvery Moonv: Dot Mur-
dock rendered the "Rosary," "Oh Stained
and Spotted Onej' and "There will be one
Harris in Heaven." Margaret Sampson
was to have given two poems composed
by herself, entitled "VVork while you Plav
and Play while you VVork," and "Closet,
My Closet." For some unknown reason
she did not turn up. But Miss Coss was
there, so she gave them instead.
At last, towards the close of the after-
noon the guests were escorted out to the
Stygian X. P. K., where shady chemists
were kept. Evelyn had the master kev.
In the first room was Mr. Howe. He was
cleaning his glasses just then, and did
not happen to look up. .The visitors no-
ticed on his desk a box outline. Here is

Next, they came to a room which was
fitted. up, all in red, like a padded cell.
Here was one installed, with her mother,
on a high chair, where she could rave
on in peace. The next room was One
which might be called of world-wide
interest. But Dotty Murdock seemed to
be the most concerned. For the Kaiser
was there, and everything he said, An-
other was swallowing with a 17.6
pipette. The Kaiser happened to give
that well-known motto of his, "Gott mit
uns." Whereupon Another replied "I
grant you that, VVilliam. I wish, how-
ever, you would ask Miss Martin and
Miss Shay to look into the matter, and
report next week."
Next the guests were shown the me-
nagerie. At the Rabbit NVarren they were
told that if they saw anything they were
to use their eyes and ask no questions.
. . . On their way back they passed
by the slaughter house, where one of the
girls we know stood beaming at the
door. She does all the slaughtering there,
as she always dresses fit to kill. On ar-
riving back at the boat-house, they found
Sammy and Gladys still at the dishes,
but as the bells had already rung, they
wished them the best of luck, and took
their leave, paddling away in their own
canoes. By this time it was dark, so
everyone hurried home, back to their
brimstone houses. And all of the guests
agreed that the swell set of Hades had
never spent a more delightful, more shady
day in their lives.
VVell, Acorns, that was enough of
talk about the lower regions, so now we
shall consider more heavenly subjects.
Speaking of heaven, connotes just what
our life this year has been. Heaven in a
nut-shell. Last year each one of us stood
out separate from the rest, but by now
we are one sweet blend, and now our
faults do not appear in the same light.
You know we are supposed to love each
other for our faults,-and according to
that, we must be extremely fond of each
other. A sort of fraternally yours,-from
all along the line, from Betts down to
Shall we ever forget this year? of
Chem. Lab., Mechanical Drawing, and
Mr. Ried, when he did come? Shall we
ever be so unhealthful as to forget our
Physiology course? . . . Never. It
seems now as though we had never
worked harded in our lives, or ever
would work any harded. And still abused
in Gym! But cheer up. The worst is no
doubt yet to come.
That's all. Lovingly,

To make others happy.

Davis's House is at the foot of the
"back hill', oil' "Maple Street." There
were just four of us at the small, new
house. Two of us l1ad the strange habit
of hurrying home every week-e11d. Can
everyone guess whom 1 mean?
We were always in a hurry in the
morning and at about 7.25 A. M. we started
on our climb up the hill. I11 the fall there
were dry leaves on the ground so that we
slipped backward a good deal. I11 the
winter it was icy so that our p1'ogress up
the hill was not very rapid. But worst of
all in the spring there were those terrible
cows to be looked out for.
In the evening we frequently liked to
enliven our hour from 9 to 10 witl1 a little
feed of some description, thanks to Mrs.
Davis who kindly lent her kitchen and
even dining-room to those occasions.
Don't forget the night when Etta, stirring
the fudge, caught her bathrobe on tire, or
when Dennie contributed "Cream of Cel-
ery Soupn to our evening 111eal. And say,
"Davites," how about the night when
An1y's company came and brought their
own lunch? And the other member of
our little band of Juniors who managed
to do nothing to distinguish herself except
to incessantly giggle.

the poor unsuspecting male.

never mind we all understand that feel-
ing more or less now. Edith was always
so busy she never had time to be tired,
but she never missed a good time.

lVe were a jolly bunch of six, so let's
give three cheers for our first home at
F.N.S., Mrs. Mac's.
Seven Cross!! But instead of seven,
there were eleven of us, innocent, trust-
ing Juniors, six liegulars and live H.A.'s.
lt didn't take us long to get acquainted
and lear11 some of the best and the worst
of each other. We soon lost some of our
innocence and trusttulness and were
happy in spite of a lew minor troubles,
such as only one bath a week, no visiting
during Stlltly hour, lights out at 10 P. M.,
or before tusually belorej, and strong-
lunged infants who insisted on crying
when we wanted peace and quiet. We
enjoyed life together for one short year,
and then we parted, to meet in the STICI-A
ter of the New Dorm. Farewell forever
to the simple life o11 Cross street.

Ilre itself, then out the window the red
llaming thing was thrown, only to land
on a pile of dried leaves:-result Mrs.
Brown came llying upstairs double-quick
to see what was going on, and the occu-
pants of the room slept elsewhere that
night. "What ailed us" the night of the
Middle Junior drama, we all had men-
but what a time we had gathering them
together:-there were telephones and
specials, and telephones solne more. But
horrors upon horrors when the door-
bell began to ring. "No we couldn't an-

"there wasn't that p1'etty"? The end of
the year came all too soon and our good
times ended with a house party at Spring-
field. Never could one forget the pic-
ture thad they seenl of six girls bur-
dened with suit-cases, coats, mnbrellas,
tennis rackets and all small incidentals,
which had faile.l to go into their trunk,
racing across Central Square, Framing-
ham, for the VVorcester car.
The little white house at 24 Maple
street could only hold four ot us, but my
we were happy. Such minor details as
that aweful lllll to clnnb with its ferocious
cows, or icy covering, lessons hard and
long, a little coal gas, or rainy weather
could not dampen our usually happy
"Bert," little but decided, often helped
pass many a lively hour, Marguerite al-
ways known as "Hiram," then we two the
only veterans, "Dot" and Helen, to stick
through many a storm.
Many good times we know, such as
candy making on an electric iron banked
by books, and even now a cleaner spot is
perceptible on the old rug, because of an
awful spill. And again, that memorable
Sunday afternoon, when two stalwart gen-
tlemen called to see Helen, but Sl1CC66LllI1g
only in meeting "Dot," in undressed hair,
at a half closed door, then those terrible
hours of agony we spent, fearing the
wrath of judgment in the form of a sum-
mons to the oflice. However, we will
never forget those days-our first at F.N.S.
The most characteristic thing about
the "Dyery" bunch was the way our
numbers dwindled. NVe lost one the first
day, and another the next, then "Peter"
moved to another room and finally to an-
other house. Myrtis and Bessie followed
suit, but Hilda and Pappy came to take
their places. Meanwhile Gooze took
batchelor apartments in the rear of the
house, leaving Peg sole and lonely, where-
upon Peg joined Myrtis and Bessie at the
Frosty place on Winter street, and Pappy
took Peg's room. This was a happy ar-
rangement until Pappy left us for the joys
of the Farm House and Gooze went to the
DOl'1ll. Then Hilda, in a vain attempt to
keep up the reputation of the house moved
into the front room, but Sam stayed true
to her first love and didntt even change
her furniture about.
Do not think, however, that the whole
year was a continual moving day, for we
had many good times. On the very first
night we had an unexpeected visit
the old girls and Gooze and Bessie were
forced to take refuge in the closet until
the party was over. The second
saw another party. Myrtis, Bessie and

dinner only to find that the meal was
half over. They being timid Juniors
went back down the hill and feasted on a
mince pie, a quart of milk and three hot
dogs. lt was not long before we learned
the art of making fudge over a kerosene
lamp. ttlne takes her turn holding the
pan.J boon fudge parties and masquer-
ades became our cniel' delight. tNote:
Peter makes a line Turk.J We took our
share of hikes. October 12 found a party
climbing Nobscot, and a month later
some of us hiked to Concord, returning
by train. We had a lunch that wa..
packed for twenty to divide among five!
5am's was the first birthday party, then
came Pete's at which we all joined- to-
gether in matrimony, the only naw being
that Gooze lost a comb and something
else out the window. Gooze was always
able to regalle us with accounts of her
past,, present and future illnesses, with
excellent demonstrations of all. One
evening as we were reviving her with
smelling salts she accidentally had the
whole bottle poured down her throat. She
lives to tell the tale, but if ever, dear
reader, you think she is not all there,
remember that she left her appendix at
the Framingham Hospital.
Nearly the last thing of the year was
the spread that Sam gave, after that we
were more separated. Yet, however sep-
arated we may be in years to come, our
thoughts will often turn to our first year
together at the "Dyery.'f
Lest we forget, why not recall some
of our pleasant memories of the Roger-
ites? Don't we look like a happy bunch?
Well, let me tell you we are.
Invariably at ten o'cloek we would
hear, "Are ye's all in bed-'tis time. Mr.
Whittemore might just be passing by.',
How the girls did delight in doing "cal-
0ge" stunts. I remember one night+my

our matresses out on the back porch and,

weak sort of a structure t2 by 45 held up
by four mere posts. When we all came
to the conclusion to turn over, "Clelly"
would give the signal and over we would
We never found week ends "dead"
because right over the front porch El
had her domicile and everybody flocked
there to watch the passers by. How agree-
able we all were, "Molly,' offering solos,
Pendy's everlasting giggle, "El" with a
witty remark every five minutes, "Mi1',
always ready to start something and
"Pudge" a good listener. Curling irons
were very expensive so we always sub-
stituted brown tissue paper. What lec-
tures we used to get for using this ac-
cessory when "it cost so much to live."
We must not forget to mention "Mother
Rogersf' My, she was good to us girls.
So many times we would see her ascend-
ing the staircase with "goodies" for us.
Aside from our good times we did spend
a great deal of time in study. H. A. rules
and chemistry were the trials of our life
but we stuck them out and here we are
good healthy, cheerful girls, not regret-
ting a thing we had to do.

VVe had been looking forward for at
least a year to the time when we could
live in the New Dormitory, and in no
way were we disappointed. VVe found
our rooms most cozy and everything so
clean and new.
VVhich floor was best? The girls on
third. floor bragged of the wonderful
view of the hills and mountain tops
which they saw from their lofty eleva-
tion. But the girls on first, found noth-
ing to compare with the comradship of
their lowing friends of the pasture. As
for second floor,-no where was there
an equal to its many advantages Cso a
few thought? but no matter where we
were, the New Dormitory found us all,
most contented, inmates.
Hazel Fairfield was chosen for House
President and, as usual, helped us to abide
by the rule of the majority, as to wheth-
er or not we should borrow magazines
permanently from the living room table,--
as to whether it was good for girls to
have too much sleep before eleven p. m.-
or not, and should young ladies have feeds
more than eight nights a week. Many
weighty matters were decided during that
We will never forget how good Miss
Corey and Miss Borgeson were to us-
when we were sick, or on cold nights,
when they sent us cocoa. crackers, and
sandwiches. Their endless kindnesses
were greatly appreciated.
That fall when chestnuts were so plen-
tiful, they actually rained in torrents in
the windows, over the transoms and
were ,sometimes carried even down thc
hallways. It was usually the strong
night winds which caused them to fall
Speaking of showers-we enjoyed the
luxuries of that modern improvement to
the utmostg-often, however, at the ex-
pense of others who perhaps were not
as appreciative. '
We thought ourselves very talented
and often after Gym. on Mondays, we
would have a little special class in aes-
thetic dancing in the living-room or
down the corridors. Our talent, too, ex-
Framingham State Normal School 79
pressed itself in a most effective panto-
mime of a "Sunday Church Service,"-as
well as our many entertainments for the
Friendship Fund. Do you remember the
movies, where the chairs dashed across
the living room, down the stairs to the
dining room, tumbled across the stajje
and up the stairs again?
As for the dancing room itself-with
its soft lights and stately windows-
many of our happiest hours and the
scenes of pleasantest memories have oc-
We thank the New Dormitory for all
the comfort and joy we have received
Crocker Hall, the home of our dreams,
and to the Household Arts Seniors the
dearest spot on the campus, has been all
and even more than we expected. VVe
have 'looked forward to living here. for
three years now. and we have not been
disappointed. The time has flown like
the wind and has been just crammed full
of jolly good times.
During one Pedagogy period in our
Middle Junior year. we drew numbers for
the purpose of choosing our rooms in
Crocker. in turn, instead of having them
assigned to us as was always done, in the
preceding years. lmmediately. the dormi-
tory was besieged by room-mates who
pestered the Seniors with inouiries as to
the advantages of the various rooms.
There was a grand rush for third floor
front: second floor front went next and
the other rooms according to their merits.
Those who had to take what was left,
at least did not have the trouble of dc-
ciding which room was most desirable.
Bright green walls and sulintery floors
were the least of their troubles.
September came, finally, and with it
trunks, bags. suit cases. girls, diamond
rings and fraternity pins! Furniture
movers had nothing on us. Our motto
was: "First come, first served." Frequent-
ly, however, one's hopes would be dashed
to the ground. upon the discovery that
she had confiscated a piece of furniture
belonging to a member of the faculty.
"Alf "Hope," Edith and "Denny,' came to
live with us soon, and the three rooms on
first floor were occupied by six Juniors.
including one Uclothespinf' It was sad
but true that striped stockings appeared
on third floor only once. The settling
process was soon over, the last bag was
unpacked, the last picture up, and the
last poor mouse chased from its peaceful
summer home. The latter. however. was
accomplished only after "Mil" and "Dot"
had kept us awake,-the heartless
wretches-for many a night with their
shrieks of laughter as they were chasin'S
a poor, harmless mouse about the room.
For several weeks, too. a long line of
waste baskets appeared simultaneously at
10 p. m. sharp, outside the doors, all the
way down the corridor.

Division A. until all electrical appliances
were forbidden, about Christmas firm..

the neighborhood for miles around to
varying sounds and noises. If one would
be safe here, according to Clelly, it was
necessary to wear a waterproof as well
as to carry an umbrella.
What a lot of things we always had
to clutter up our rooms! First, hats, next.
nice smelling petri dishesg then silk dresses
and also practice school samplers, bags
and aprons. By the way, will you ever
forget Sammy and her long-suffering
roommate buried under one hundred or
more white aprons in the cutting out
process? No place to study, no room to
sleep, in fact no peace at all for poor
Irene. Then later, there were baskets,-
"socialized" baskets and while these
lasted there was:

when "Kay" and "Twom" held forth in
the parlor or when "Clellv" entertained
her friend and incidentally the rest of
us, with selected pieces for the piano. in-
cluding "Love's Old Sweet Song." Sunday'

One of the memorable events of the
year occurred when Elinor and Olive
cleaned their closet. As a result they
broueht to light a perfectly good white
sign board "Beacon St? and, as it seemed
very appropriate, placed it just outside
their door. VVithin a half hour, "Fifth
Avenue" appeared at the head of the stairs
and then "Commonwealth Avenue" sprang
up at the other end of the corridor. But
"Pie Alley" stuck. Even "Gooze,' was
not allowed to change that.
The days we spent in house practice
will be one of the pleasantest memories
of Crocker. Vi'ho can ever forget the sig-
nificance of "requisitions,,' or the Friday
cleaning with the regular dusting of the
birch logs in the fireplace, the "proced-
ures" with their definite directions for
"washing and rinsing mop in a given
place as requiredf' the Wloodward family
with its expense account, its trials and
tribulations, the shiftless shifts, the day
when the troop trains went through the
town and Kay discovered a brother "pro

ury of coffee, I. D., and last but not least,
the joys of being a cook?

George from four to six. Hazel Fairfield,
Margaret Harmon, Dorothea Allen, Doro-

This year we hope more girils can enjoy
the privilege of attending this conference.
The Membership Committee continued
the custom of sending sometime during
vacation, the name of an entering student
to each upper class girl, so that every
Junior had someone to welcome her at
F. N. S. and someone whom she could
consult in time of difficulty. Early in the
fall ai successful membership campaign
was launched by Margaret Harmon, chair-
man of the Membership Committee, who
spoke in assembly on the ideals of Y. W.
C. A. and invited the girls to come to our
meetings. By a systematic plan every
girl was also personally invited to join
our society. The response was one hun-

planned to hike to Sherbourne where we
were conducted over the Reformatory

mittee have done much to make the girls
feel at home here.
The Missionary Committee has given
the money collected by voluntary contri-
bution to Armenian and Syrian relief
work. We have enjoyed several fine
speakers from fields in foreign lands.
The Social Service Committee has had
charge of the Red Cross and Surgical
Dressing work obtained from the Fram-
ingham Chapter. Patchwork quilts are
under way for the French wounded.
The Publicity Committee has kept
something of interest on the Y. W. C. A.
bulletin board' every week. It has been
widely varied and we have enjoyed watch-
ing the new and interesting things ap-
pear from day to day.
Great credit should be given to Dor-
othy Weeks, chairman of the Religious
Meetings Committee. Through her efforts
and those of her committee we have been
able to hear some very interesting speak-
ers at our Wednesday afternoon meetings,
among whom were Dr. Sheldon, Dr. Klotz,
Dr. Ralph Harlow, Mr. Parker and Mr.
Dupertins, Y. M. C. A. secretariesg Miss
Hoyt and Miss Hersey. The girls have
shown their appreciation by their attend-
ance at our meetings. Late-comers have
even sat on the steps in the lecture hall
because every seat was taken.

The Y. W. C. A. contributed S525 to the

established institution at our dear Alma
Mater. We hope it grows in ideals and
service, we hope each year may be bet-

The St. Agnes Society
The St. Agnes Society is a new school
club which was started last fall. It was
established primarily to give Episcopal
girls a feeling of closer relationship with
Church affairs and Church influence while
away from home. The meetings are con-
ducted by the Rev. Paul Sterling. The
subject of Church History and the study
of some of the vital factors of religion are
being discussed. The society has had a
small beginning, but it is hoped that it will
grow in strength and become an influential
factor in the social and religious life of

The Framingham Normal A'Kempis
Club, which is one of our youngest or-
ganizations, was established in the fall of
1917. The purpose of it is to unite the
Catholic girlsyat Framingham in a club
which would replace the girls' clubs at
home, also to become better acquainted
socially. The club name requires a word
of explanation since few out side of the
organization know why it is so named.
Thomas A'Kempis was a prominent Cath-
olic writer in the fourteenth century.
His writings bring forth many high ideals
and one of his best works is "The Fol-
lowing of Christ."
The girls worked very hard in doing
all they could for our boys "over there"
and were able to give twenty-five dol-
lars to the United War Drive. The meet-
ings were intended for good times as
well as work and were held at the Rec-
tory or in Wells Hall. usually under the
direction of Dr. O,Connor.
The A'Kempis Club is still young, but
we have great hopes for it and we are
sure that under Dr. O'Connor's leader-
ship it can be nothing but a success.

For a club which has this for its
motto is it not fitting that their meeting
place should be called the "Lighthouse"?
The two hour meeting once a week gives
new strength and courage to the sixty
girls who belong to the club. Each
finds as she enters, a loving greeting, a
cordial hanflclasp from Miss Perry, our
beloved leader, and enjoys a cup of tea
in front of a cozy open fire, under a won-
derfully inspired picture of "The Spirit
of Motherhood." The meeting which fol-

or from some helpful book on current
subjects, or other subjects which are al-

What would a school be like if it was
not represented by one or more clubs or-
ganized especially with a view to stimu-
lating and fostering a desire for good
music? With the Glee Club, Mandolin
Club, and Orchestra working as hard as
possible after school duties had been at-
tended to, the showing that was made at
the joint concert with the Salem Normal
School was not so remarkable after all.
The concert was one of the best which
has ever been given, and was a credit to
Mr. Archibald and all who assisted him.
Before the concert the orchestra
played at the Auburndale Study Club, the
Christmas Party, at an Orchestra Dance,
and the Framingham Women's Club. The
Glee Club had its carol singing as'usual
at Christmas time. It also responded to
the call of the Framingham Women's
Club and helped to make the concert
with Tufts Glee Club a success.
Our Musical Clubs find a niche in our
life which would be difficult to fill.

have a firmer organization than before,
and with this in view the committee, en-

pleted and presented to a gathering of
the students. It was adopted unanimous-

will grow to be a definite factor in the

The X.P.K.! Any girl on Normal Hill
will tell you that little cosy "home" has
meant a great deal to them and they will
begin to tell you all about teas, birthday
parties, fudge parties, and innumerable
good times they have had there, not for-
getting the many times when a dozen girls
wanted to make fudge at the same time
and there weren't any too many pans to
go around! Besides all the fun, much in-
teresting experimental cookery is done
there, making the "little home" of all the
more value to us.
This year Mr. Ried has worked out a
project with the Middle Juniors for doing
over all the woodwork and furniture. Be-
sides lbeing a lot of fun it has given every
Middie Junior a chance to try her hand at
painting, varnishing or retouching of
some sort. A color scheme is being car-
ried out which will make it look very
homey and give a touch of newness. We
very much desire that the future classes
will take a big interest in the X.P.K. and
will get as much enjoyment out of it as

The postman in each respective town
on the morning of July 15 brought a long
official looking envelope to the unsuspect-
ing girl who had carelessly signed her
name to the list of "those desiring to at-
tend Summer School" and who, by the
way, had planted one or two string beans
and other equally edible vegetables, in the
spring. Each girl tore open the envelope
all ready to read that she had been left
a fortune, or that she was to appear at such
and such a time as witness, etc., but no!-
as near as can be remembered the docu-
ment read as follows:
"Report ready for work at Crocker
Hall, July 16, 8 A. M.
Signed. W. H. F Meier.
Think of it! and think of a young
lady's wardrobe to be prepared-and sup-
per to get that evening. Early in the
spring three kind hearted girls had offered
to be the first cooks, and prepare a deli-
cate supper upon arrival. Tuna and rice
salad was the main difficulty. It is hoped
that anyone expecting to cook rice in a
large quantity will look in one of the
chemistry books "on the side shelf" and

It is a lucky thing that the Crocker sink is
large and the utensils many, for every
one was used in a vain endeavor to cool
four or five pecks of rice, in thirty min-
utes. But enough of that! On the whole
the culinary end was well carried out, for
Mr. Meier insisted upon plenty of good
nourishing food-and the girls didn't need
Roommates were chosen in the spring,
and first come first served, to rooms. There
was little choice as to interior decora-
tion-comfort was the main point. Be-
fore the two weeks -were fover, any girl
whose soul was so aesthetic as to mind
no draperies, lights or rugs-unmade beds
and plenty of dust-would have left. This
select group was hardened to all of that
and more too.

showed wisdom in running his thermom-

The rest of the tired party removed
their sticky middies and went to bed. Even
before the glorious sun had set-no one
knew whether there was a moon or not-
and went to sleep. It is rumored that
some talked before slumber overtook
them-but the truth is not known.
There were two girls who voluntarily
assumed the responsibilities of night

they met Miss Fernald nightly on their
tour through the building, in the pantry-
while locking the windows there. Dio-
genese had nothing on these two and their
All of this and the head and faculty of
the school have not been mentioned. Mr.
Meier led the gathering as principal and
faculty, and Miss Fernald as Dean of the
Summer College. When, by chance, the
girls 'tired "of string beans, Mr. Meir's soft
and crooning voice would cheer them up
to the tune of "Illinois, Illinois."
It would be far from right to think
that play was not in the curriculum. One
evening a dictionary was seen flying over
the stairs and heard landing-after water
had been placed before each door for
bare feet to patter in. A very clever trick
-but alas the author is still unknown.
Week-ends-they were in order as dur-
ing the usual term, but they began Satur-

earlier, but by the main entrance.

was really done. The New Dormitory
was supplied with string beans essentially,

put was 1177 quarts. Possibly you ru-

from the Summer School-for the War
Drive-and the H. A. Seniors will not for-
get the ice cream served Sept. 16, or the
little party April 16 in Crocker Hall. On
the latter date the girls again ate ice cream
together, and listened to a paper on the
history of Household Arts, written by Mr.
Meier-not to omit the presentation of
their Canning School diplomas, and a good
time reminiscing with Miss Fernald.

er making baskets from all corners, what
can one expect? The cheer
Yea! Cap'n! Yea! Preble!

sounds again and again.
The whistle shrills and the first half
is over. What a joyful time for Yale and
how tense are the Harvard girls. The
whole atmosphere is relieved when, with
gales of merriment, Esther Preble enters
dragging "Dot" Murdock on a little Kiddy
Kar. The vehicle also carries a huge
bunch of chrysanthemums for Miss King-
man, the most faithful coach in the world.
Then the game begins again.
It was early in the spring that Miss
Shepards announced to us the date of the
annual field-day. The name did not mean
much to us Juniors, but the Seniors and
Middle Juniors who had participated in a
similar event the preceding year, were
agog and their enthusiasm was so con-
tagious that before long, we Juniors were
as much interested as the upper class-
As the appointed day approached, our
excitement increased. The all import-
ant question was, "Will it be pleasant?"
The weather was the sole topic of con-
versation a week ahead. The optimistic
kept repeating that Fate would be kind
to us, but of course, there were a few
pessimists who kept chanting, "It will
rain, I just know it will pour." The
day before was fair as could be and our
hopes soared. We argued, "If today is
so lovely, it simply can't rain tomorrow."
Tomorrow did dawn, cloudless and
we were in a seventh heaven of delight.
We tripped blithely through the corridors
and even the prosaic atmosphere of the
class-room failed to dispel our elation.
It seemed rather cruel to us that teachers
should inflict common-place, everyday
arithmetic and geography on us when our
heads were filled with much more import-
ant things. Try as we could, we were
unable to concentrate. As Miss Ramsdell
endeavored to make clear to us the rota-
tion of the earth, the globe was trans-
formed into a baseball in the hands of the
pitcher. Pencils became bats. The walls
of the room simply melted away and we
"Dot" Murdock has the right spirit all
along. She doesn't give up until the very
end. Her team is devoted to her and show
it by their loyal teamwork. Harvard
girls are game losers.
At last the score is announced and
with what cheers are they received!
Forming again into lines Yale goes cheer-
ing out to a wild snake dance on the
lawn, followed by Harvard.
A small Junior expressed the senti-
ment of both teams when she, gave voice
to the following: "Some game, I'll say!"
were out of doors, cheering a home run.
What a relief when the bell of freedom
rang! But alas, gone were the blue,
tleecy skies, gone the bright sun, gone the
light breeze, and in their places, grey
skies and a brisk gale swaying the trees.
We stared at each other in dismay. It
was not going to rain! It could not! But
the sky grew darker and more forbidding,
the wind rustled the tiny leaflets on the
trees and even the most optimistic of us
had to admit it did look a bit like a storm.
In spite of this, it seemed nothing short
of a tragedy when the rain did come, and
come with a vengeance, dashing all our
hopes to the ground, while the pessimists
cheered us with their, "I told you so's.,'
A week later was decided upon, and
this time we were not disappointed. The
day was ideally warm and sunshiny. The
girl assembled in front of Crocker Hall.
A happier crowd you never did see, chat-
ting and laughing as only school-girls
can. Each class was in gym bloomers
and middies, and wore, besides, special
distinctive decorations. The Seniors,
first, of course, were distinguished by
queer head-bands, on which were printed
in white the letters "Regular" or "H. A."
and the date of graduation, 1918. The
Middle Juniors were very attractive with
blue bands over one shoulder. The Jun-
iors loyally flaunted the school colors-
orange streamers which refused to stay
on the sides of their bloomers, and huge
"J"s on their backs.
The procession was led by two tall,
dignified Seniors, bearing high the State
Framingham State Normal School 93
flag and our national emblem. Behind
them marched the girls, grouped in class-
es, all singing lustily. As each group sang
a different song, the medley could hardly
conform to Mr. Archibald's conception of
harmony, but we did make old Normal
Hill ring. Of course, there were minor
hitches in our carefully laid plans, but
what did it matter, if one girl did lose
her shoe on the way down, and 'have to
make the rest of the journey on one
foot? What did it matter if another's
bloomers did insist upon crawling down
to her ankles? Did incidental trifles
like that depress us? Hardly!
The faculty and audience were all as-
sembled when we reached the field. Up
and down before the spectators we wound
in intricate, fanciful figures until before
their eyes a pretty tableau was unfolded.
So dextrously did the leaders manoeuvre
the lilies that no one surmised what was
coming until the full significance dawned
upon them and they were spontaneous in
their applause. Before them on the green
field were the Seniors tracing "F.N.S.',
The Middle Juniors thrilled us, forming
as they did the letters "U.S.A.', The cli-
max came when suddenly they revealed
red, white, and blue handkerchiefs and
waved them in the air. No less ingenious
were the Juniors in their vivid formation
The big athletic event was the Senior-
Middle .Iunior baseball game which was
featured by excellent playing all round,
but splendid pitching, in particular. Mr.
Workman, trim and natty in white flan-
nels, umpired the game. The Middle
Junior victory was a close one. Juniors
and Seniors competed for volley-ball
honors. The game was fast and exciting
and went to the Seniors. Various relay
races were closely watched. The rail-
road and obstacle relays provided much
merriment and gave the Juniors a chance
to win their spurs.
Again we formed the procession for
the march back up the hill, the victors
pouring forth their elation in song and
cheer, the vanquished showing their
good sportsmanship by joining in. In
front of Crocker we stopped, and students
and faculty alike joined in singing and

Middle Junior Play-how much of
fun, jolly times, and "really truly" hard
work those words convey. Our class
chose "The Piper," by Josephine Preston
Peabody, an adoption of the "Pied Piper
of Hamelinf' The play besides being one
of beauty and wit, was of the highest liter-
ary standard as it took the first prize for
Literary Merit at Stratford on Avon a few
years ago. Before February vacation the
cast had been chosen as follows:

Shortly after vacation, rehearsals be-
gan in earnest. Through the following
weeks table talk was carried on mainly
in blank verse, with fitting quotations
from the "Piper,' at frequent intervals.
"Is this your child?" '
"He is my only one."
"Do you remember how she smiled on
me that day?',
"Thanks, kindly spoken, not this after-
"The bees know me." i
"I told ye, so."
Miss Dorothy Hayes, a graduate of the
Leland Powers School of Oratory, acted
as official coach. So competent was she,
so sweet, so enthusiastic, so perserving,
that her spirit bathed us all, and we were
ready to work night and day. Do you
remember the little song we used to sing:
"We have a c-o-a-c-h

And we love her, love her,
Love her all the t-i-in-e, time?

Of course there were days when things
lagged, when girls didnit appear at re-
hearsals, and when the spirits of the chair-
man, the cast, and even of Apollo on the
platform were almost sinking too deep.
But on the whole, things were beginning
to look rather promising, when, ten days
before the date of the play, Esther who
had been taking the role of Michael fell
ill and sent word that she could not as-
sume her part. Panic reigned. But out
of the chaos stepped the form of Port-
Port who had been acting as stage man-
ager. Miracles happened! "Kay" valiantly
took over Portis job, and pushed the
whole matter of scenery through to a
glorious finale. tWe'1l never forget the
hours spent on the cave scene, Kay.J Port
plugged on Michael's lines and in two
days things had settled down to order
The date decided upon was Saturday,
May eighteenth. The preceding after-
noon is well burned into the memory of
the cast, in fact of the entire Middle
Junior Classy adjustments of scenery, re-
peated rehearsals, changing of costumes,
flashlights, smoke, hurried lunches, trips
to florists, freight trains, thermometers
going up, pitch-covered boughs, and a
statue that impressed us with its fragility.
But the pinnacle and spire of it all was
the complete dress rehearsal with all
scenery changes from 8.30 in the eve-
ning. Many weary heads rested only
lightly that night, to rise hastily with the
dawn of the great day.
At last the moment had come. The
audience in breathless impatience waited
for the dimming of the lights. WVith a last
twist to Barbara's curl, a settling of Ver-
onika's cap, a straightening of .Ian's tie,
and a final dab of paint on the Piper's
cheek, Miss Hayes breathed, "Ready," The
foot-lights blazed. Before them the audi-
ence saw the town of Hamelin on the
Weser, with a crowd of townspeople,
watching the gambols of a group of strol-
ling players. And then for two hours
they were carried with the Piper on his
adventures with the children, through the
pretty love story of Barbara and Michael,
and the pathetic wanderings of Veronika
in search of her lost lamb. Dot Miner
as Veronika surely won the hearts of her
listeners with her wistful pleading for her
childg as Jan, Dod Nelson might well
have been taken for the tiny boy she
characterized: the pathetic sweetness of
Barbara tDot Murdock! as a nun was
well matched by the adoring love-1nak-
ing of Michael tPortJ. We must not for-
get San1's good work as Kurt, the Syndic,
nor her delightful music and clever imi-
tation of a flute for the Piper. But above
all towered the form of Gab as the 'Piper.'
No one could have made a better one-
the rollicking lilt of her songs, the manly
stride, the happy air, and the earnest
deepness of her voice when pleading be-
fore the statue of Christ for Jan, will long
We do feel that our play was success-
ful, for our audience sat quietly spell-
bound as the curtain went down with the
Piper's parting words:
"So good night-good morning-and
There is so much piping left to do
I must be oft'-and pipe."
Frolic and Fun
The annual show of course you know,
Had to go, but not too slow.
Sometime in January t'was rumored
"Show your talent, and act like a clown."
Over night, was enough for us-
A goodly number appeared right off.
Songs, and dances, and jokes were the
Soon came one. and then came all.
Rehearsals every afternoon and night
Until most of us were an awful sight.
The time soon came and oh! that night-
A bunch of fools-yes, I am right.
The house was packed to the very doors
The people were waiting to give encoresg
And when the curtain finally went up
No coons were there to entertain the
The car on which they were due to arrive
Was supposed to come at half past five.
When all at once there came such a roar
And in they piled from every door.
Now, the fun was bound to start
With every one ready to do her part.

THE PARABLE OF THE TROOP TRAINS
CWith Apologies to Safed the Sage.J
Now, behold, it fell on a day that cer-
tain persons in this institution who did
not have the proper attitude said unto me,
"Come now with us, and we will go down
to see the troop trains." "Nay, verily,"
I said, "for behold I wore my best spring
hat today and lo, the rain is descending. I
paid 325.50 for this creation, and though
it's not worth more than 31.98, I do not
want to spoil it." But they constrained
me greatly, so I hastily masticated my
Framingham State Normal School 97
lunch, and throwing on my coat, my head
exposed to the April rain, Iran in great
haste down the hill, for already I heard
the whistle of the approaching train.
Then I, and the friends who persuaded
me to come, and numerous others of our
institution for females, stood on the plat-
forn1 and held out our hands so that, as
the trains moved slowly by, the thousand
or more young men on our side of the
trains could slap them as they went by.
After the trains had gone by, and it being
nearly time for the hygiene class, I said
to my companions, "Come now, I pray
you, and go back to your duties with me."
So we started up the hill.
And as we ascended, I mused to my-
self on the value of going down to the
troop trains. "Soul," I said to myself,
"thou hast done a foolish thing this day,
and one which was not worth the exer-
tion, for behold, thy artificial curl is com-
ing out of thy hair on account of the rain.
CI always do my hair up at night on West
Electric Curlers, they being guaranteed
not to break the hairjg it also is coming
down, and thou hast not time to do it be-
fore class, thy hands smell of cigarettes
and orange peel, and are smarting because
they have been slapped 3,000 timesg and
thou art out of breath. What profit has
it been to thee?" Thus I communed with
myself, when suddenly I had a happy
"Friends and fellow students," I said,
addressing my companions, "I am con-
vinced that the troop trains are of benefit
to us as young women."
Now 1ny companions, when they heard
these words looked at me askance, for
they said among themselves. "Behold the
sight of many men in uniform hath de-
mented her, or perchance she is kidding
us along." A But I, observing their dark
looks hastened to explain, "Lo, I said,
Cans't thou not see that whereas formerly
we fooled away our time indoors after
lunch, when the troop trains go thru we
enjoy much healthy exercise in the open
air during that half hour."
Then they gazed on me in awed sur-
prise, and whispered-one to another,
"Verily, her wisdom is great, and by
means of her unfathomable understanding,
she derives benefit, and sees good in ev-
And they answered in chorus, "I'll
say she does!"
At three o'clock, on the eleventh of
November, we were awakened by bells
ringing furiously throughout the village.
For a moment it seemed as though t e
whole town must be on fire, until Mrs.
Prouty came through the corridors with
a lantern, and brought us the glad tidings
that the armistice was signed. She told
us that Doctor Chalmers had telephoned
that be would be up in a few moments,
and that we had better dress as quickly
as possible. You never heard so much
excitement-"Where are my shoes!" "Oh,
Brad will be home for the dance!" "I am
so thrilled!" "I can't believe it!', etc., and
then our matron tried to calm us. It was
no use. The anxiety of the preceding
months was for the moment forgotten,
and every one joined their voices in the
joyous din and confusion. In less than
lifteen minutes, we were a well organ-
ized group and, headed by Dr.-Chalmers
with his machine and a drum corps, we
marched to South Framingham, singing as
we went all the popular war camp songs.
As we approached houses in the village,
when every thing seemed to be quiet, we
cried, "Get up! Get up!" until they got up.
We were the first well organized pa-
rade to reach South Framingham and we
were greeted with cheers, as we marched
around side streets, back streets and main
streets until it seemed as though we were
the army veterans themselves. After the
celebration down town, we marched back
to the dormitory where we eagerly wait-
cd for breakfast.
At nine o'clock, we assembled in May
Hall, where we were dismissed from
classes, but told that we should all be
expected to be present at one o'clock, as
Miss Helen Hughes was to be here to
speak on the VVar Drive Campaign.
At 'dinner time, we found that the ma-
trons had decorated the dining room very
attractively, with red, white and blue
crepe paper. Dr. Chalmers announced
that welhad the place of honor in the pa-
rade by marching back of the "gobs'."
This was a reward of merit for our pre-
vious showing. Some of the girls were
too tired to go but those who cared to
march went to South Framingham. They
paraded around the town and marched to
Camp Darling where a huge bonfire was
lighted and the day was ended by a fire-

The "Prof" is known by many,
Has damsels not a few,
But when he is so winning,
What are you going to do?
He is so nice and proper
No critic could deny,
That though on cars he travels
He never winks an eye.
He is always very busy
Composing Penman's wiles,
But some times when things happen
His face is wreathed in smiles.
We do not like to bother
About our friend's ado's,
But "Prof" is much addicted
To running "up-phone" dues.
And all for one lone maiden
Who lived so far away,
He owed this little fortune
Which he was loath to pay.
"I cannot stand this longer,"
And therefore-awful shame,
Our "Prof" must break the promise
And forget the maiden's name.
To make his life worth living
To teaching he has turned.
I hope this noble service
Will ne'er, neier be spurned!
And so he is by daylight,
But when the day is o'er,
A host of lovely maidens
He leads out on the floor!
It is his only pastime
fExcept his wayside lunchi,
For so often he is tempted
On some goody for to crunch.

But leave him at his ease,
To munch his fudge and apples,
Or a little lemon squeeze!

Drippings from Summer School
Oh, life is full of soft tomatos
Containing large black polka dots
We sit here and we scalp them
And our work is just begun.
XYe peel them and we slice them
And our work is never done.
Our hands are of a greenish yellow hue
And dripping with delicious shiny glue
We do not worry, we may
Yet get them done by Judgment Day.
Ah, life is full of soft tomatos.

The Class of 1919
We 're the class of 1919 of Framingham so dear
And our faces ever sadder grow as the parting
time grows near.
We hate to bid you all good-bye,
And here are a few of the reasons why.
We 've shone in all our classes,
We 've shone in volley ball!
And the way the teachers loved us,
Pleased us best of all!
And when at last we've left you,
Whatever will you do?
No dignified seniors your actions to guide!
No elder sisters in whom to confide!
Such a class as ours
Was never known before,
And to think we have to leave you!
Yes! now and forevermore!
