XVhen you look in this book
You will see on its pages,
The tales of our youth
In one of its stages.
XVe like to remember
The things that we did.
And so, here we print them.
They cannot be hid.
VVhen you take "The Dial" down
From the shelf where it lays,
NVe hope it may help
NVi1e away weary days.

To Our Faculty
As a class, for the past two and three years we have
been given over to the tender mercies of the commonwealth,
which has in turn through the ministrations of you en-
deavored to store our minds and hearts with all good and use-
ful things. VVe realize now and gladly place on record our
gratitude to you for what you have done for us. It is through
you that our aims in life have been raised, our motives have
been puriiied, and our perceptions enlarged.
VVe hope that by our future lives we may show our ap-
preciation to you.

Join in loving hymn of praise,
Praising thee our Heavenly Father,
Light and strength of all our days.
Thou has multiplied our graces,
Loyalty and truth sincere.
Thou hast taught us love and honor
For our school, our school so dear.
God of love, our tender guardian,
Shielding us from many a sin,
Through the years of earnest toiling
Thou hast given us faith to Win.

Lead us all Where'er we gog
Help us live to truth most holy,
Fullest life on us bestow.

Of course she's still sweet, but how inde-

Anna headed the roll in Division A and
it wasn't a bad beginning either, for l
Anna is one of our cleverest girls. She
possesses one of those bewitching smiles

Here is Grace, a tall, modest, dignified

she possesses the happy faculty of being
jolly, good-natured, and witty, most en-
joyable combination. Besides, Grace has
a remarkable amount of common-sense.
CHAMBERLAIN, RUTH LONG.

Ruth is the girl who plays the violin in
the orchestra. She always knows what

How she does it is a mystery to us. Who
has ever heard her say an ill word of
another? No one. How does she do it?

Dorothy is one who is always pleasant

her outside. She is jolly enough to cure

Margaret is another one of our quiet

never a word to the contrary. We feel

our able pilot.
Early in the year we fulfilled one
of our traditional duties by serving at
the Senior-Faculty reception to the
Juniors. Then, to show the new girls
what hospitality and comradeship
are at F. N. S., we gave a series of
teas in the X. P. K. In October came

class in running a circus for the
benefit of the Y. VV. C. A. It was

Dudley elected captain of the Har-
vard team, and we know that the
team never could have won such a
glorious victory but for her leader-

History of the Regular Seniors
In the famous year of 1918, we, the
members of the Regular Department
of the Senior Class entered this Nor-
It was in September of the year
when there could be seen many
young, innocent, wide eyed girls
strolling up Normal Hill, looking for
we knew not what, yet eargerly seek-
ing a school for Normal girls, in
which class we considered ourselves.
Some were more fortunate, for they
were led about by a dignified senior,
and given instructions in all the hab-
its and regulations of the school.
That ever remembered first after-
noon! Strangers everywhere. The
feeling of excitement and awe as we
first shook hands with our room-
mates, with whom the fates had cast
us. Trunks arrived, and were
dropped at the door. You know what
that means, girls! Running up and
down stairs until it is at last empty,
really empty. Yes, that word could
have applied in more places than one.
It was about this time that some one
asked, "XVhat time is supper'?', fAf-
terwards we learned that it was
called Hdinnernj. So our feelings led
us up to the already crowded living-
room. Here our thoughts began to
wander, and the common expression
was, "Oh, how I wish that I were
home." VVe could be seen in the
corners watching the joyful greetings
of the upper classmen, and wishing
that we knew someone. But it did
not take long to attract attention and
become the center of all activities.
The never-to-be-forgotten first day
at school! To chapel, the first thing
in the morning, climbing those never
ending stairs. Groups here and there
were gazing at their new surround-
ings, and whispers, such as these
could be heard, "Who is that tall
1nan in the corner?,' 'fOh, see that
little short teacher. She looks young-
er than the rest. I wonder who she
is, and what she teaches? I hope we
will have her, for I bet she will be
nice." So that was our first view of
the faculty, and we made many
guesses as to what they taught and
who they were.
Divisions and classes were assign-
ed and the trouble we had finding
our right stalls. 'fFollow the crowd"
is a good motto until the disaster of
entering a room where some Seniors
are busily engaged befalls you. Then
you immediately learn directions.
But in the process, some were sud-
denly lost in a narrow, dark, and
dangerous looking passagewayg and
they became bewildered, thinking
themselves deported through a se-
cret underground passage to a Ger-
man prison camp. The smell of eats
led them on until the familiar living-
room and luncheon appeared before

learn how to become "tillers of the
soil." We bent to the task with the
hot sun streaming down upon us, re-
moved all sticks and stones and scat-
tered our queer seed. Those precious
gardens were visited every day by
the planters, searching for the first
shoot. The harvests we reaped were
well worth the backaches. ,
Graduation drew near, but we, the
little Juniors were to be sent home

be in Senior A. for those girls were
to go out practice teaching first. At

all went for our programmes.
YVe worried through our work as
usual, and entered into our play with
all the vigor of our lives. Some were
enjoying the career of really being
school-marlms, while the rest of us
were looking forward to our chance.

After rising. we always made a
bee line for the bathroom which was
supposed to be of limited capacity.
After the one who wore the red and
blue checked bathrobe had brushed
her teeth and thrown a little cold
water on her face, there would in-
variably be a signal given by tap-
ping of the radiator, and her room-
mate was on the scene of action in
less than no time. Fanny was gen-

During the day. we were always

VVe generally calmed down soon
after ten, although Mrs. McAleer was
very considerate in that she never
switched the lights off. One night
when we were all supposed to be in
bed and asleep, there was an unfam-
iliar sound in the hallway. We went
to our doors, and when we looked
out, we saw a crab with several
alarm clocks and powder cans. It
sounds strange and probably you who
were not there to witness it will
think it is preposterousg but we, the
inhabitants of 31 State St., certainly
saw that strange sight. VVe all said

The dormitory is a large building
in whch the college girl secures the
maximum amount of sleep and the
minimum amount of food.
The object of the dormitory is to
provide a quiet, docile retreat for
the college girls who have been los-
ing sleep at home in rectangular
chunks. This is always due to the
nocturnal depredations of the male
butterfly with a lavender necktie,
who does not have to pay the elec-
tric light bills. When a depressed
father has endured this for some
time, he places his daughter in a
dormitory, where the lights are
switched oif at 10 p. m.
The dormitory is presided over by
Framingham State Normal School 83
a matron, a kind-hearted person,
who is not appreciated by the 1116111-
bers of her flock until they have been
out of college for several years and
are trying to bring up a few daugh-
ters of their own. The matron is
obliged to be severe, but at times, she
becomes extremely nearsighted and
allows a few dents to be put in the
rules and regulations. It must be
hard to be a matron with good eye-
sight and a stern sense of duty.
The dormitory is not infested by
young men except at stated hours,
and as this is always between meals
no harm is done.

weights of food We innocently ate
until the very Walls of long suffer-
ing Crocker echoed and re-echoed
With Weight before cooking, Weight
after cooking, and cost as eaten.
Occassionally the unusual happen-
ed, such as when Denny's bed spring
broke twice Cgood suggestion offered
for a special topicj, or Agnes arose
at 7.25 for the alarm clock usually
went off at 4 a. m., or Dickie forgot
to sing "My Girl's a Corkerf,
Then, there were Friday night or
Saturday night parties with candy
pulling or corn popping in the kit-
chen, quiet hour with its death like
stillness on ,Sunday afternoon, and
nine oiclock parties.
VVell did Crocker's inmates learn
the inseparability of love. VVho ever
saw Pete without her faithful
"dearie" accompanying her, or Ag-
ness Without her Dottie to furnish
that terrible combination?
Significant were the signs that ap-
peared from time to time upon the
various doors. For weeks, Room 23
was inhabited by a Question Mark,
we were ever bidden by Dickie and
her rummie to "Quitchunokin and
Come in." The combination reigned
supreme in Room 25, while a faithful
Framingham State Normal School 85
Watch dog guarded Mag and Gladys.
Many. also, have been the lessons
which Crocker has taught us. It
has instructed us to arise decorously
at the 6.30 rising bell, to fold back
carefully the bed clothes. to dress
becomingly so that we are well
groomed and to throw open wide the
windows to air the room thoroughly
during the breakfast hour. Such is
the demeanor of a well-behaved,
So the year has sped swiftly by and
Crocker is ours but for a short time
longer. Many and pleasant are the
memories we have and always will
they be dear to us. May the classes
to come, love and cherish dear old
Crocker as we have and enjoy to
the full all the pleasures and enjoy-
ments she furnishes them.

the most interesting speakers were

is due Miss Coss, Miss Kingman, and
Ruth Kunhardt for the quality and
success of the "Musical Echoes."
The helpful custom of sending the
name of an entering student to each
upper class girl during the summer
vacation was continued. With each
letter went a copy of an HF. N. S.
Girl's Cr'eed,', that the entering stu-
dents might know the standards of
our school. In September, every
Junior was welcomed by some old
F. N. S. girl whose aim it was to
make her first days easier. Under
the direction of Charlotte Holbrook,
chairman of the membership com-

the students. Membership "tag-days'
closed with 206 girls wearing the

Through the Social Committee,
the Y. W. C. A. invited all the girls
to a friendly "sing" in Crocker Hall,
the evening before school opened.
The next Friday night they wel-
comed all the girls to a "Boy and
Girl Party." One Saturday 85 girls
enjoyed a hike to Nobscot with a
"Weenie roast" and douglmuts, as a
reward after the long dusty walk.
The Publicity Committee has kept

a good sum for Christmas giving and
with the money clothing was bought
for needy families. The girls gave
games and books, dressed twenty-
four dolls, and many Christmas
packages were made up for the chil-
dren. A quilt was made and sent to
a family in Dorchester.

The Juniors may say that the first
time they entered the X. P. K., was
when a reception and tea was given
in their honor at the beginning of

Whence these strange uncanny stories,

With the smoke of outdoor cookers
And the crack of breaking bottles,
Of the canning of the string beans:

On the top of Normal Hill.

Who made the plan
To set us all a-toiling.

And stop all noise and bustle.

And keeps my brain in a perfect whirl.

Upon her very first day.

And then she felt quite very well.

In the wide-spreading parlors of Crocker,
Took off the faculty members,
Delphine, whose last name is Haskins.

Dared show a crack, when Hazel Hill
Acted as bossing boy.
She strung a bean into a pan-

For beans were everywhere.
Ruth Kunhardt is a lady, laws!
What cares she for the canning course.
She holds within her dainty paws,
A two pound box of Page Sc Shaws.

And she worketh all day through.
By thy wooden spoon and well filled jar
Now wherefore works this motley crew?
The canners' doors are open wide
And Janet puts in wood.
The kindlings burned, the dampers
The beans are boiling good.

Stands Mildred Shane so quiet and proud.
Across our antique portico
Night by night her footsteps go.

As she paces along her lips repeat
Walking out-out walking,

For she has been late each breakfast right
But Marion's there at noon.

To tickle the palates of all.

Since we came to this school
Our one great desire
Was to replace the dorm
Destroyed by fire.
So our principal begged,
He did all he could.
And a new one was started
Where the other one stood.
When cement, brick, and Wood
Formed foundations secure,
The cornerstone came,
By our plans, to be sure.
T,was laid on a Thursday
As bleak and as chill
As will ever be known
Upon Normal Hill.

And found a good place,
Where we might stand to watch
That stone put in place.

What else could compare?

NVitl1 the advent of the outdoor
season, all thoughts were turned to-
ward preparation for Field Day. For
the month preceding all Hgymf,
classes were h'eld outdoors, and un-
der the peppy guidance of both Miss
Shcpardson and Miss Kingman,
much was accomplished. VVe as
Juniors, hearing so much from the
upper classmen about that wonder-
ful Field Day, and being naturally
unsophisticated, talked incessantly
about it among ourselves. Those few
days before Field Day, were long to
be remembered. It was almost im-
possible to concentrate, especially on
such things as early explorers and
At last the day dawned, and a bet-
ter one could not be wished for. The
morning was, without doubt, the
longest drawn out we had ever been
through. It seemed as though every-
thing we said and did was wrong.
Ten minutes before one found us
all, with the exception of a few, who
could not keep their crepe paper
down, assembled on the campus.
Such a happy delightful group of
girls you never came across. All
wore gym bloomers and middies.
The Seniors were distinguished by
queer head bands of green, green on
their middies and bloomers. The
Middle Juniors were decked out in
blue and the Juniors in the school
colors, large black J,s on their backs
and orange bands on their middies.
The Seniors led the procession down
the hill, followed by two of their
1ne1nbers,representing the Gold Dust
twins, and led on by Dot Carter. The
Middle Juniors followed, led by Den-
nie Haskins,who danced and pranced
all down the hill in front of them.
Last, but not least, came the Juniors.
YVhen we arrived at the foot of the
hill the faculty and audience sat
waiting for us. Having marched up
and down before them and formed
our letters, we took our places at
different corners of the field.
The first and one of the most im-
portant numbers on our program,
was the Senior and Junior baseball
game. It was a hard fought game of
five innings, ending in favor of the
Juniors, much to the sorrow of the
Seniors. The Juniors then played
the Middle Juniors. 'The tide was
turned and the Middlers came out
victorious. Variations were offered
by games of volley ball and all sorts
The success of the day makes us
look forward to the time next year,
when we can repeat all the fun.
THE HARVARD AND YALE GAME
Our Harvard and Yale game of
1919, was one never to be forgotten.
From the moment the girls in blue
entered the gym, until it was empty
of everything except the echoes of
the lustrous cheers of the girls, not
one person in that great crowd let
her mind wander from what was in
front of her. How could she?
For fifteen minutes before the
game, one could see past graduates
and friends falling into each others

arms and exclaiming over this thing
and that. Then suddenly from a
great distance we heard the followers
of the Eli singing her praises, and in-
to the gym they pouredg line after
line of girls in blue, until those cheer-
ing for Harvard thought she had no
one to assist her. But after they had
formed their letter Y and had sung a
few songs they cleared the center of
the gym for "Fair Harvard." How
could Harvard help but win! Just
look at those girls in their bright red
tams and eager expectant faces. A
few moments of tenseness and out
came the two teams, each cheered in
Now the game is on and the cheers
ring through the whole building,

rooters and Dickie making the Har-
vard routers yell till their throats
The whistle blew and the first half
was over. The Harvard mascot, a
tiny fellow, dressed all in red, pre-
sented Miss Kingman, the best coach
the girls could ever have, with a
bunch of chyrsanthemums. For a
while, poor old Yale was drowned by
the cheering of the Harvard girls,
but bravely she pulled herself to-
gether and cheered loudly for her
team. From the beginning of the
second period, the game was Har-
vard's. Those of us who had ever
tried basket ball, looked on in open
mouthed wonder at the way Flor-
ence Dudley shot those baskets.
Great credit is due the Yale team,
for although they saw their finish,
they fought bravely to the end and gave
a great display of good team work.
At last the score was announced,
and Harvard went wild. The play-
ers were assaulted and paraded
around the gym in the centre of a
group of almost hysterical, wildly
joyful girls. And, why shouldn't
they be? Wasn't this the first time
in eight years that Fair Harvard had
defeated Eli? Each member of the
team was cheered separately and
then a cheer for Yale. The excite-
ment of this game did not die down
for many a day.
THE FACULTY GAME
After Field Day, the winning team
of Middle Juniors challenged the
Faculty to a game of baseball. This
was immediately taken up, and the
date for the game was set. At four
olclock on the day appointedg the
'Middle Juniors were on the field, all
spick and span and prepared to tight
a hard battle. But alas, there were
only six members of the faculty
there. By four twenty, two more
were ready for action, but the third
could not be found, so they were
forced to play with a "nine,' of eight
With Mr. Workman in the pitch-
er's box, Mr. Reid, behind the bat,
Mr. Howe, at first, Dr. Meier at sec-
ond, Mrs. Merriman as short-stop,
Dr. Chalmers at third and Miss Rus-
sell and Miss Gardner in the out field,
the game began. From beginning to
end it was full of pep and caused
many a queer feeling to run up and
down the spinal cord of those cheer-
ing for either side. We H. Afs, all
through our three years on the hill,
have shown pluck and perseverance
and indeed we have needed it. Did
we need it that day? Well, with two
thirds of the audience cheering for
thefaculty, and with Dr. Meier mak-
ing home runs by the bushel, well-
you ought to know how it feels.
Dr. Chalmers caused quite a sen-
sation when he jumped up and with
one bare hand, caught a fly. We all
decided right away that Miss Gard-
ner was the best of sports. She sure-
ly could hit the ball and speed
around the bases with her hair flying
down her back. The score was kept
pretty even throughout the game
which only intensified the excite-
On the whole, we considered the
game a corker, and were proud that
our class had been the fortunate one.
We hope that other classes will en-
joy similar games, keeping up the
"game spirit" between faculty and

Are you glad, or are you sorry?

I'm so glad this teacher suits me.
I'd be scared if I were you.
They say she's terribly cranky
And she's just so fussy, too.
And youire going to be with me?
Won't that be lots of fun.
You say you'd rather have practice
What, have you grade one?
I wonder how they'll treat us?
Just think how we will feel
To teach in front of teachers,
The mere thought makes me reel.
Do you s'pose they're always poking
Everytime we teach a bit?
If she asks me to teach music,
I just know Iill throw a fit.
What! You say they start us teaching
The first day we enter in?
Oh, I'll be glad when this is over,
Pm already getting thin.
Such were a few ejaculations,
Heard that wondrous autumn day,
When the lists meant 'mediate action
On our part-Division A.
Soon we found ourselves quite settled,
From those first momentous days.
We found the teachers could be borne
And soon we learned their ways.
The first day they told us calmly,
"You're to wash the boards each night,
And be sure to clean the chalk trays,
And fix the curtains just right."
"Every morning, dust all over,
Chi1dren's desk, and mine, you know.
Please do not forget my plants,
You must water them just so."
The room sure did look tidy,
We can't help but admit,
We strove to please our teacher,
And to make a great big hit.
Some dear teachers would forget us,
And kindly leave the room,
When for our well prepared lessons,
Our proud station we'd assume.
But others! Oh, my gracious!
They never let one free
To teach one least bit alone,
They interrupt, you see.
One thing we loved immensely,
Was a chance to substitute.
Oh, such very perfect days
With no fear of teacher's "toot"
But taking all in all,
We loved our practice teaching,
And we all realize its worth,
For division A has not one weakling.

AN F. N. S. MAIDEN'S PRAYER
Lord, for to-morrow and its needs
I do not pray,
Keep me, Miss Greenough, from reciting
Just for today.
Let me no wrong or tuneless note
Let Thou, a seal upon my throat,

Let me be quick to understand
Miss Kingman's new relay.
Help me to be most graceful,
Just for today.
So, for to-morrow and its needs
I do not pray,
But tell the teacher here to skip
Just for today.

Dear Mr. Lyman:
Do you remember, while at F. N.

knew what profession my classmates
were in, I would let you know? Un-
fortunately, there are many whom I
know nothing about, but I know you

Last week, while attending the
movies, I saw Miss Plylander and Bill
Hart in "The Victories of Victoria."
At the close of the performance, I
found I had been sitting next to
Helen Gilbert, so we had a short
chat. She. told me that Bernice Jones
is working at Schraff's in Boston,
where she spends most of her time
nibbling chocolates, and that Helen
O,Connell is running airplane ex-
press from New York to London.
In the Bed Lodge Evening News
lately, I read that Miss Alice Clifton,
formerly of Framingham Normal
School and now drawing instructor
at the College of Liberal Arts, is
spending her vacation in this city.
Yesterday I received a letter from
Florence Emery, who said that Char-

arranged my hair, she chatted away
as she used to do. She told me that
Elma Mandell, Rachel Long and
Ethel Soule, were playing in Sousa's
Band at eight oiclock that evening, at
St. Mark's Cathedral. I was sorry to
miss such a wonderful event but I
had to catch a train to Boston.
One day shortly after my arrival,
I went to Mtechanic's Fair and re-
ceived the shock of my life. People
around me were paying large sums
of money to see a 4'Beal Live. Theo-
dosiaf' Anxious to see one also, I
paid the money, and saw-could it
be? Yes, it was Kay Porter. She
told me that Mil McCormack and
Frances Wilson are traveling with
the Ziegfeld Follies.
Helen Woocl wrote me several
months ago, that while she was
spending her honeymoon in Canada,
she was knocked down by an enthu-
siastic teacher, none other than Ruth
Paul. She was on skiis, her class
trailing behind her, vigorously doing
gymnastics and studying the winter

One afternoon while on the Nan-

so it seemed. Leaning over the rail-

none other than Ruth Kenney.
It would have been a crime to have
been so near Framingham and not
to have taken one peep at the dear
old school. ' So from Plymouth, I
went there, expecting to find every-
one in quarantine, or some other cal-
amity. I did not have long to won-

Seated one day in the H. A. Lab.,

For I didntt know my lesson:
Penny Ann was hard to please.
I know not what I was doing
Or what I was dreaming then,
But when she called on me for an
I whispered: "Lord, help me! Amen!"
Then came an awful silence,
Like that following the crack of doom,
And it lay on my fevered spirit,
Like the air in a ghostly room.
It sent all my knowledge flying
Like wind blowing things around,
It drove the last echo of joy away,
And dashed my hopes to the ground.
There may be some sad feelings,
There may be some sad thoughts,
But they cannot equal mine that day-

When we arrived at Framingham,
And started in to sew,
The styles were 1896.
Oh, no, they were not slow.
You do it once, you do it twice,
You do it three times over,
You may think you've got it right,
But-then you do it over.
Measure this and measure that,
And then you find it wrong,
You mind the length of front and back,
But still its wrong, wrong, wrong.

It must have been real interesting,
For he held his audience all the time.

But the meanness of the meanest
Or the leanness of the leanest
Isnit in it with the greenness
Of the Junior, when she's green.
