Night wraps her shroud Of sombre sable round the tented field. The willing soldier seeks his bivouac bed. Fanned by the night-wind’s misty breath, a ar The campfires glow. The stars, brave watchfires of The skies, gleam bright in answering challenge To the lights below. How sweet, how welcome, rest : Soon, down the lines in soft melodious call, The bugle wafts its latest lullaby. Obedient to this knell of dying day, The candle-tapers disappear in gloom. The soldier dreams of home and warfare done. REVEILLE. Awake ! The dawn is here ! Yon golden east Proclaims the hastening sun, — day’s glorious king. Eise ! soldier, rise ! Shake off night ' s drowsy dreams ! The bugle’s clarion call, the summons of The new-born day, blest Labor ' s challenge to The world o sleep, rings through the morning air. How sweet, how welcome, toil ! From tent to tent T1 awakening peal flies far on airy wings, A heaven-sent message to the dormant soul. Forth to thy task ! It waits thy hand on fields Where, since the primal dawn, the hosts of good And ill have met, and men have died for man. ALBERT W. BACHELER, PRINCIPAL MARY A. KILBURN KATHERINE L. COPELAND DORA M.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1902. One bright morning in the early fall of ’98, — to be exact, the sixth of September, — a crowd of frightened youngsters might have been seen hovering about the side door of the High School, until Mr. Bacheler, taking pity on us, marched us into the basement, allotted each a nail, over which the owner’s name was promptly scrawled, and then ushered us into the big study room, amidst the hearty applause of the upper classmen. The girls, of course, according to their kind, had gone in before school and secured their seats. Being an exceptional class, we suffered very few mishaps during those first few weeks, but whether that was because we all had the schedule on the back of our blocks, or because we strictly ignored all the kindly advice given us by the Sophs and Juniors, I can’t tell. Some of us plunged boldly into the Classical course, prepared to face the terrors of Greek and Latin ; some chose the General, frightened perhaps, by that mysterious word Greek; others took the Modern Language course, disdaining to study anything as “dead” as Greek and Latin, while still others, being content with plain English, took the Business course. This latter class has graduated and passed on into the world. Some have already risen to positions of honor and wealth, while the others are getting there as fast as they can secure the neces- ary “ rising material.” Good luck to them ! Our greenness gradually wore off, and we ripened to high school ways, until finally we became so accomplished that we could leave the study room for Miss Howe ' s when Mr. B. called, “ First four numbers!” and could talk across- three aisles right under the teacher’s nose. It took time, of course, and many sad failures, to acquire this proficiency, but ( 2 ) time and practice will do wonders. Certain members of the class, too, began to display marked abilities in other directions. One showed quite a leaning toward poetry, indeed, his parody on Marmion, beginning, “ Young Lochinvar came out of the west, With a dirty coat and a ragged vest,” quite enraptured the class. His “ choice and flow of words ” was something remarkable, and we feel that if he had only remained with us, and received our help and encouragement, “ Bernie ” might have risen very high in the profession. Brooks seemed to think that the school texts books weren’t fully illustrated, and strove to remedy the defect, while Hannon and Barry formed a mutual scrapping society and held a “ regular business meeting ” every recess. Many, too, were the good times we had in recitations— in Physics with Mr. Burnham, where most of us, at one time or another, received a severe thrashing — with a catskin — which, of course, shocked us greatly ; in English with Miss Woodbury, where we took up astron- omy, geography, and kindred subjects ; in Latin with Miss Sibley, and later, with Miss Wonson, where our two dignified captains fought for the corner seat, while Brooks made “googoo e3 ' es” at the Freshman girls as they passed to gymnastics, and Harrison “ spouted ” his latest poem. But gradually the year wore on, with its vacations and exams., until Field Day was upon us, and then how we Freshmen drilled ! In fact, the Freshmen in the prize squad drilled so well that one of their number won a medal, which was quite remarkable, considering. Regi- mental Field Day and “ the last day of school ” followed in quick suc- cession and we parted for the long summer vacation. SECOND YEAR. All too soon September came round again, and we found ourselves back at school, watching with cruel enjoyment the aimless wanderings of the little Freshies over the sea of “ No Dusto.” And what an awak- ening of school spirit there was ! Two classes organized, and a school paper, the Crimson and White, was started, being edited by members of the Junior and Senior classes. Early in the year the Junior class organized, and we, “ led on by fate,” dared to set an example, and elected our class officers, chose class colors, and selected class pins. But here our energy gave out, and as far as we remember, not another class meeting was held during the remainder of the year. Soon drill began again, and most of the male portion of the class blossomed out with corporal’s chevrons and a big volume of tactics, the contents of which we were required to assimilate, and then transmit to green and awkward freshies. Nepos claimed a good deal of our atten- tion, that is, of every one except Swift. He got along on sight trans- lation for a while, but feeling that that method was a bit slow, he cap- tured a pony. Then he got along so fast that he had to be excused for the rest of the year to give the class a chance to catch up with him. The boys took up chemistry this year — it wasn’t in the regular course, but you see, they had geometry in the chemical laboratory, and not wishing to waste a whole period on geometry, they did a little amateur chemis- try, chiefly in the chapter on acids. Toward the latter part of the year, the Seniors published the first attempt at a year book in the G. H. S., and succeeded in getting up quite an interesting little book, the “1900.” JUNIOR YEAR. Juniors ! At last we had reached a place of some importance in the school, so important a place, in fact, as Miss Slade’s room. Here, for one whole term we ruled affairs, and we were ruled — out, for the very first day of the second term found every Junior boy back in the study room. Soon after this unfortunate occurrence, the boys sudden- ly found out that they were very much interested in Roman History, and of course, two or three books were necessary ; you remember Mr. Merchant always said, “ Never get your history lesson all from one book.” The girls seemed fond of history, too, and the poor little library saw some warm times. That didn’t “ jar it ” much, though, as it had been acclimated the year before. Class spirit suffered a great awakening this year. Regular class meetings were held, and the social committee entertained the class at several enjoyable assemblies. At the beginning of the year, the man- agement of the school paper was offered to the class ; we accepted, and elected a board of editors, who, though not very well supported by the school, still succeeded in making a great improvement on the first volume. We also entered heartily into the idea of a Battalion Fair, and contribu ted largely to the sum realized. This year, for the first time in our school life, we had Mr. B. as instructor, and you may be sure, we knew our Cicero and Virgil like “Youth’s Companion.” Chemistry claimed a large porportion of the class and they suc- ceeded in turning out the usual quantity of high explo- sives, pigments, soap, etc., for Exhibition Day. During the winter, the Senior boys grew a little cool toward ’02, and in the basement one recess, just for some excite- ment, 1 suppose, they so far forgot “ their respected and honored dignity,” as to form in line of battle and try to win from us the possession of our sacred corner, where, for three long years, we had been wont to congregate. You may be sure we rallied nobly in its defence, and for two days protected it from from Senior invasion, when the “ powers that be ” sent forth the mandate that no more “corner rushes ” should be held, and the “ Bloody Angle,” became a thing of the past. Following the example of 00, the Seniors this year published a class book, the Tolmama, which was a great improvement on the “ 1900,” and yet was lacking in many details. As for the advice they were kind enough to give us, it was only another instance of “ the pot calling the kettle black,” and — well, we don’t wish to cast any reflections. Suffice it to say that we soon forgot all about it in the hopes and disappoint- ments, the excitement and enthusiasm, of “the last day of school.” SENIOR YEAR How changed we were, when, at the end of vacation, we reassem- bled for our last year in the dear old G. H. S.! From frivolous and capricious Juniors we had changed to steady, sedate Seniors, mindful of our superior place in the school, and the attendant duties which devolved upon us. We placed our ideals high, and throughout ths year have tried to live up to them, with very good success. Indeed, we feel assured that if succeeding classes will follow in our footsteps, they can- not go far wrong. At the beginning of the year we determined to add to our old reputation for good scholarship, one for business ability, push, and originality, two things which seldom go hand in hand, and how well we succeeded is shown by the happy outcome of the numerous affairs held under Senior auspices during the year. After straightening out class matters, electing new officers and committees, drawing up and signing a constitution, etc., the idea of class theatricals was brought up. The class lent itself heartily to the scheme and appointed a committee to look up the matter, but unfortu- nately, the majority were girls, who promptly decided that the entire cast should be female, why, nobody knows, unless it was because they thought the boys couldn’t act! However, what they said, “ went,” and to them alone, belongs all the praise for the excellent performance which they presented, and all the thanks for the magnificent gift which they presented to the school. Later in the- year, the Seniors in French, under the direction of Miss Me Allester, successfully presented two French plays, and the receipts are to be used in enlarging the French library of the school. The Battalion Officers have proved themselves fully as energetic and capable as those of previous years. The Officer’s Party fully equalled, and perhaps eclipsed, any of its predecessors, while the receipts of the Battalion Fair exceeded those of last year. W r e earnest- ly hope that future officers will continue these fairs, as it is a pleasant, and comparatively easy method of raising the money which the Batta- lion must have. May they earn more and more each year, and may the old G. H. S. B. never lose its place in the foremost rank of crack school battalions. And now our school life is almost over. Soon we must part ; some will enter college, while others will at once enter that highest school of learning, practical life. But whither the wind of Fate may waft us, wherever we may wander on the broad Sea of Life, let us always remember our dear Alma Mater, and keep forever green the memory of the class of naughty-two. THE CLASS OF 1902 ODE TO 1902. i. A door is barred ; we cannot find tbe key ; Yet some day we shall linger weary-eyed, And strive as other lingers fling it wide, To catch a glimpse of things that used to be. II. And as we gaze, let no one, losing trust Whisper, repining ; “ All my life is vain ; I worshipped glory and my mede is pain, My high ideal is fallen into dust.” III. Tbe goal we strive for, must eternal stand If it be worthy of onr toil and tears ; Tor it has been upheld these countless years By something higher than a human hand. IV. So let us lift our eyes and know His plan ; And calm among the ruder things of life Keep one ideal untainted by the strife, A pure-souled woman or a noble man. PROPHECY FOR 1902. When I decided to prophesy for the Class of 1902, I first thought of funds, without which everything in this cruel world is impossible. The class Treasurer was very obliging, and drew me a check for 8500 without a moment ' s hesitation, refusing to supply me with more, on the grounds that he had, for safe keeping, buried the remainder in a beanpot in the cellar of the Rockport Town Hall. So he who thinks the lot assigned to him is too humble, is respectfully reminded that presidents and millionaires come high. I had already decided where to transact the business, but perhaps no one of you noticed a small advertisement on the twelfth page, lower right hand corner of last Sunday’s 44 Journal.” It simply informed the public that the only and original priestess of the Delphic Oracle was in Boston for a limited stay. I was glad to be able to consult so old and reliable a firm, and was also rather eager to see this energetic female, whose tongue had made more trouble than a little. The house is very easy to find, so easy in fact that directions are unnecessary. It was an imposing brown stone front, and I nervously rang the bell, as I endeavored to cull a suitable greeting from my 44 en- tautha Kuros ” vocabulary. A moment later the door flew open, and I stepped directly into a large square hall, quite destitute of furniture. At the upper end, another door led into darkness, while on the thresh- hold two young men in white tunics were playing checkers. It was very picturesque and I should have admired it far more if, just as I approached, the taller of the two had not adjured the other to 44 go way back and sit down.” Alas for the degenerate modern Greek! 44 Excuse me,” I said, disliking to disturb them, 44 but is the lady “ She’s always in,” mumbled the taller, rising to his feet and tipping over the board ; “ we’ll take her out now, if you’re in a hurry. Ivlear- chus! ” this to his companion, “ get a seat and lift up the trap while I fetch the old lady. Klearchus, stretching himself, strolled to the middle of the hall and lifted the trap-door, which 1 had not observed. Then he brought a low stool and sat down on the floor beside me. “You look shocked,” he said, kindly. “I am, a little,” I admitted, “You boys don ' t seem very respect- ful.” “ Wait till you see her,” lie replied, rather crossly. “ All she does is to lie in her box, day after day, never speaking a word, unless she has a customer. All she will eat is pickled peanuts. Poor Socrates and I spend all our time in shelling peanuts and putting them up in jars. My nails are worn to the quick.” Before I could reply, Socrates returned, carrying in his arms what appeared to be a bundle of white cloth. Klearchus hurriedly placed a metal tripod over the trap-door and together they set upon the low perch, a little wizened figure from whose mummy-like wrappings a little pinched face peeped forth, with sharp, beady e} r es. “ She knows what you want and all about it,” remarked Klearchus, proudly. “ I’ll go and turn on the gas.” “ Would you please not prophesy in blank verse,” I ventured humbly. “ It always bewilders people so and moreover it’s monot- onous.” “ Rhymes cost extra,” interrupted Socrates eagerly, “ but I can take them dow n in shorthand and add it all in with your bill.” At this moment fumes of gas began to rise rapidly through the trap, as if a gigantic electric fan was at work below. A horribly familiar odor smote my nose. “CL! ” I gasped. “ Right,” said Socrates cheerfully. “ Its the nearest thing we can get to what she was used to once. Stand by the door. She’s beginning.” And somewhere from the thick vapor a shrill voice began, contin- uing without a pause, while Socrates’ pencil scratched vigorously. “ Beside the broad Pacific Sea, upon the tropic sands, Reclines the Rev. ‘ Butter ’ Brooks, a Bible in his hands ; And twenty little blackamoors, the converts he has made, Are toiling for him in the sun, while he sits in the shade. “ Xow see the far-off western ranch, where, on her catt le’s track, Miss Agnes Alexander rides upon a broncho’s back; Her trusty band of cowboys brave are rounding up the herd, And when she speaks — each man must jump ! obedient to her word. “ Within his lordly castle hall, with coronet on brow, Sits Leonard Herne, an English earl ; you well may wonder how ; But all his noble ancestors have shuffled off so fast, That he was called across the sea to take his place at last. “ With sample case and bag of books, Miss Burnham comes to view; The smartest female drummer that the country ever knew. With ever restless energy, she speeds from town to town. While ‘ men,’ consumed with envy, must ‘ go way back and sit down.’ “ Who treads the deck of yonder bark upon the bounding sea? ’Tis Skipper Bill Maclnnis of the schooner 6 Sarah B.’ Though small of frame, he still must work, and o’er the water roam, To feed his seven hungry boys who wait for him at home. “ With bonnet of enormous size, in modest Shaker dress, Behold your schoolmate, Susie Rowe ! a change you must confess. She dwells within the Shaker town, no thought has she of man, What blighted hopes have sent her here, imagine, if you can ! SAWYER FREE LTRRART ai.OUCESTEit. MASS. G1930 “ Charles Wetterer, policeman stout, comes pacing up the street, The terror of the little boys who live upon his beat ; His uniform is not so bright as in the clays of yore, And now he wears a badge and club, and wields his sword no more. “ Arrayed in robes of spotless white, I see a smiling bride, A fat and yellow Chinaman is standing by her side. It is your old friend, Sally G.; she soon will be his wife, And in the far-off land of rice will lead a happy life. “ 0 Zeus Preserver ! What is this ! Ah, can this thing be so ! Alphonso Tarr, an anarchist? Ye gods, avert the blow ! With blazing eyes and howls of rage, he heads the motley throng, That drags King Edward from the throne, where he has reigned so long ! “ From far and wide the people come to visit Edith Crowe ; Oh never shall this world of ours a weirder maiden know. In wondrous trances, long drawn out, she meets a spirit band, And carries messages to earth from out the spirit land. “ In Father Holloran I see a member of your class, His youthful follies gave no hint of what would come to pass ; But when for gold, a fickle maid, his trusting heart forsook, He swore to never love again, and holy orders took. “ Amid the plaudits of the crowd, behind the footlights’ glare, Belle Kerr is stalking up and down with highly tragic air ; She makes the Lady of Macbeth a portrait full of truth, And shows the ' •eat advantages of Shakespeare learned in youth. “Kow here is Bessie Woodbury in uniform of gray, With leather bag slung on her back in quite a mannish way ; Among progressive womankind, she surely takes a place, And her duties as a postman are performed with speed and grace. “ Here is a man whom you must own has made the most of time, For Edward Rowe has reached a height where few may hope to climb ; He drives the city wat’ring cart and from his lofty seat, He guides his slowly moving steeds along the dusty street. “ The Misses Collins and Ahearn have laboured long and hard In teaching Virgil to the Finns, that noble Boman bard ; For they affirm that this alone will elevate the mind, And in this almost thankless task their greatest joy they find. “ Though sad the tale I have to tell, I feel I must relate The outline and the truthful facts of Dora Lawson’s fate : For blinded by ambition’s glow, she left her home behind her With one she thought a noble count, who proved an organ-grinder. “ There was one girl in your famed class whose pen poured forth strange story, Of transformation, spirit life, all strange and wild and gory. The Xew York Journal — W T omen’s Page. What name there? Mollie Kowe ! Yes — Ella Wheeler Wilcox is long forgotten now. u W r ho would have thought that Warren Swett could ever come to be The stylish, up-to-date old beau whom now I seem to see ; Of Gotham’s clubs, a shining light, he sets the men a pace, And at each very ‘ swell ’ event is seen his smiling face. “ I hear a drum, a trumpet ' s blare, and marching to and fro, In bonnet blue, I can discern a figure that I know, For Marion, now Captain Smith, is heading the brigade, And as Salvation Army girl, her record she has ma e. “ In graceful evolutions Miss Winnie Marshall whirls, She is giving dancing lessons to a class of boys and girls. Her prices are tremendous, but her patrons gladly pay, For certainly she is the finest teacher of the day. (i This horny-handed son of toil, who leans upon his hoe, And hitches up his overalls, is someone else you know ; For Edwin Marshall’s in Vermont, and now must reap and plant To keep his wife of 62, her mother and her aunt. “ And now this sylph in pink and white who balances in air, Was once Miss Lyle ; it thrills one’s nerves to see her poising there As Madame Lioletta, she is Forepaugh’s brightest star, And heads the street procession in a green and yellow car. “ Dispensing hash three times a day to boarders left and right, A widow, placid, prim and plump, appears before my sight. She smiles ; behold a dimple deep and by this sign of mirth You know that Helen Livingstone is still upon the earth. “ This bearded creature on the flats with basket brimming o’er, Conducts a clam emporium way down on Rocky Shore. Ah ! Horace Ford, has this base task supplied the place of Greek? Why didst thou leave thine Iliad, the clam’s low haunts to seek? “ But there is one among your band, whose name is known to fame ; A life size statue in your school now testifies the same. For Stickney’s 1 History of Greece,’ one hundred volumes fat, Is used throughout the universe — what do you think of that! “ Come hold your breath and hear with awe this mystery profound, Shy Maggie Brown has ceased to tread upon this mortal ground ; With courage high in a balloon she mounted up one day, And where she is, the wisest man cannot presume to say. “ Now two and two, a flock of girls, their teacher in the rear, Are marching out to take the air ; their boarding school is near. Thus John McLoud devotes his life and strives from day to day To captivate the female sex — in a paternal way. “ This haughty-looking female with her hair screwed into place, And spectacles upon her nose, has a familiar face. You little thought that Helen Frost would change her early plan, And spend her days in lecturing against the monster ‘ man.’ “ There is a certain hospital in Cuba’s sunny isle Where swarthy patients sun themselves in Dr. Wheeler’s smile ; She sets their bones and carves them up and when the job is o’er, They vow that they are better than they ever were before. “ The echo of a well known voice now strikes upon my ear, Tho’ ’midst the rumble of the trains ’tis difficult to hear, For Knowlton, Rockport’s fairest bud, in Boston ' s subway stands, Directing hundreds toward the cars which move at hi s commands. “ The Fates have smiled on Bessie Smith and showered her with gold Her husband is a billionaire, but gouty, fat and old ; But Bessie leaves him safe at home, and in her lovely yacht, (foes sailing round from sea to sea with every care forgot. “ Last but not least I see a youth with laurels on his brow, How Stephen Warner ranks above you other classmates now ! The Senate oft re-echoes to his eloquent address, And Daniel Webster’s glory is immeasurably less.” She ceased and I handed out my money in silence; I received the bulky manuscript, listened to Socrates ' cordial farewell, and took my departure in the same state of awe. To think of the blindness of my classmates! To think of their strange mistakes! Thank goodness, I had been the humble means of showing them their errors ; there is still time to rectify them by forming new opinions of our friends’ abilities, and learning never to judge by appearances. IMS r. aROOK ' ox a o WKICfllP " 0 0TO c E? o l( CLASS OF I9O3. HISTORY OF 1903. We have been requested to write a history of ’03. Please accept our apologies in advance for any errors that we may commit, and ex- cuse us on the plea of not knowing any better. ’03 originated, not, as would be thought from a glance at our class numerals, in 1899, but in 1898, when the experiment was tried by the school committee of intro- ducing a five year course into the school. About thirty pupils from the eighth grade of the grammar schools gave up the pleasure of grad- uating and entered that course. © At first it was undecided what our class should be called, but finally some learned Senior hit upon the name “ Mr. B’s Babies,” which name stayed with us for a year. A word here : Among the thirty which made up the collection was one to whom ’03 owes all her subsequent successes, and to whom Mr. Bacheier gave the name of “ Mascot.” Under the leadership of “ Mascot,” the class passed safely through the the first year and became “ Freshsophomores,” or “ Sophfreshomores,” we do not exactly know which. The incoming “ Freshies ” gained the benefit of our experiences and received much good (?) advice from us, for we felt that, having been in the school a year, we were a little better than they. Some memorable events occurred during this year, foremost among them the day that York “blew himself” in the laboratory. The year passed without any bad accidents, and we became Sophs. Several of the boys donned the chevrons of Non-coms, and all were up to the mark in drill and discipline. We lost “Chet ” that year, and also “ Sam,” but otherwise everything passed off pleasantly. The class was organ- ized, officers elected, and colors of green and gold were chosen. Our president began to show remarkable athletic ability for one so small, and the class treasurer became a sprinter of note, receiving plenty of practice in the collection of class dues. Fortune favored us, and our basket-ball team won the Tolmama cup, which was presented by the managers of the Senior year book. Time passed, and we became Juniors, with all the glory of that exalted station in life. But fortune seemed to have left us, for, to the dismay of all, “ Mascot ” did not come back. The pessimistic ones said that the class was doomed, but ’03 bravely put aside its grief and went onward and upward. This, bringing us nearly to date, we must close with a few words about our present affairs. The class socials continue to be successes and the class meetings to be well attended (?). The president still calls for “ less noise.” York rises to a point of order and delivers a choice lecture on parliamentary law, whereupon the president sits upon him, and the class unites in singing, “ More work for the .” “ Herbie ” still dislikes the girls (?) and sometimes startles his instructors by doing a lesson. “Charlie” still holds the position of “ Captain of the Coonville Cadets,” and is making a great success of it. Shute still continues to pattern himself after Lyle in the matter of height. “ Hero Hobson ” still brings bananas to school in spite of his accident, and the class of 1903 still continues to thrive. We have said nothing about the girls, as we don’t know much about them, and moreover we wish to be alive when the next issue of the year book is published by the class of 1903. ’ 03 . fWrn nrmit CLASS OF 1904, Colors : Royal Purple and Gold.

HISTORY OF ' 04. This illustrious body of brains first made its appearance in the six “ Babies ’’ who arrived in 1900, and these forerunners were followed the next year by the remaining army, which now comprises the class of ’04. We listened with awe to the deep voice of the gentleman on the other side of the study-room, who ran his finger along a blackboard and said terrifying words which we had never heard before. We were informed by friendly upper classmen that this was the schedule. We were initiated into the terrors of Latin, Algebra and Physics, and the joys of the “Gym.” Proudly did we feel that the Junior girls were “ nervous,” when they “ lined up ” against our team, and valiantly did we fight for the cup. Under the leadership of a long Senior, some of our number converted themselves into Chinamen and ran a laundry for two nights, that we might make a fitting appearance at the Battalion Fair. We even learned the Chinese language and solved the riddles on the checks, much to the © © wonder of our customers, for little did they know what extensive brains were concealed within our Freshman crania. Time went on and greatly added to our glory and knowledge, until that eventful field-day arrived, and knowing what a fine appearance we were making, we proudly held up our heads. And when we awoke from that dazzling pageant there stood one of our number wearing the Haskell medal. Ah ! we had cause to be proud ! So ended our Freshman year, and as we parted on that last day we looked forward to the dignity of Sophship coming with the rising sun. And now it is here, and behold us organized and steadily advancing ill wisdom under our motto “ Proithi.” On the first drill day some of us were given squads of tiny Freshmen to order around, and we stren- uously fulfilled our commission. We have had several enjoyable socials and have adopted a most excellent constitution, which we all mean to abide b}% but don ' t, and are wearing little gold badges to let people know who we are. At the Battalion Fair we carried on a very success- ful “ country store, ” and reaped a harvest second only to their Excel- lencies, the Seniors. Although we won no prizes in declamation, we made a very pleasing appearance, and two of our members received honorable mention in composition. We have, alas, lost some of our reputation for good- ness (?), and have become acquainted with a certain blackboard in the study room, and also the bad habit of eating peanuts which have shells. We are looking hopefully forward to the time when we shall come to Junior’s estate and wear the sergeant’s uniform and expend our sur- plus energy in reforming the Crimson and White. We are looking forward to a brilliant future, and at our socials ever quaff to “ The Long Life and Happiness of the Class of ' 1904.” Dorothy Burnham, ’04. CLASS OF J905. OFFICERS.

If we did, woe be unto Latin the next period! We Fresh- men Avant to say this : that Ave do not get a chance to “ stuff,” as Ave always have business, class or private meetings at recess. If the Freshmen are green, they are bright enough to capture the officers. What do the Seniors say to this ? One of our number received a note from a Sophomore friend, addressed to “ a diminutive, freshman, imbecile.” How insulting! The class of ’05 will have its fun next year on the Freshmen of ’06. Freshmen are continually entering. If we are green, Ave managed to make an amount second only to the Seniors at the Battalion Fair.

Experience is the best teacher.” Iya L. Marshall, ’0o. HISTORY OF 1905. On the 19th of June, 1901, a large party of fractions were gradu- ated at City Hall. Of course, we were extremely proud of our diplo- mas, showing them to every one we met — for it was our first experience with diplomas, and may it never be our last ! Diplomas, graduation and so forth, soon went out of our minds for three months. On the 8th of September, when we came to the beginning of school again, we realized for the first time that we were the despised “Freshmen.” Think of it! Only three months before were moments of supremacy to us. I said we were fractions. We were, and we are. Some of us are common fractions, some, I fear, even improper fractions, and some very proper ones. We were decidedly mixed fractions when some of us strolled into Chemistry, Cicero, Virgil and Caesar classes, mistaking them for Alegbra! ! We were not mistaken long — for though we were entirely green about Latin — we knew from the sounds of Virgil, Caesar and Cicero, that it was not the hated a+b=0. When we entered, our older brothers, sisters or friends said noth- ing, but wisely watched us for a few days. Our Senior friends said, “ Copy us in every detail, and remember that if you are not a Fresh- man you can never be a Senior.” Alas! it is too true. The Juniors said, “ Now little Freshies, don ' t you fear, ’03 will be your best friend throughout the whole year.” Question, “ Have they fulfilled their prom- ise ? ” Last of all, the Sophomores with a patronizing air said, “ Dear ’05, don’t you cry, you’ll have socials bye and bye.” This was advice given us by people of one year’s experience. We are very big fractions, holding class meetings and electing our officers, and doing our important business in a jiffy. One of the warn- MEMBERS, Howard C. Andrews, Alex W. Andrews, Amanda F.

The Greeks and Romans of ancient times were noted for the excel- lence of their soldiers, and so today is the Gloucester High School noted for the excellence of its soldiers, or perhaps a better term would be cadets. These cadets, ever since their organization, have ever main- tained the same degree of perfection, which has so often called forth expressions of approval from those well versed in military matters. When organized in the year 1885 there were about sixty members, and since that time this number has steadily increased until now about one hundred and twenty constitute the battalion. Each year sees a new quota of officers and men. Drill is compulsory for all boys who are regular members of the school and not physically disabled. Mem- bers of the fourth class can be nothing but privates, those of the sopho- more and junior classes are generally corporals and sergeants, while the commissioned officers are taken from the senior class, although in some instances commissioned offices have fallen to juniors. At the close of each year competitive examinations are held for corporals and sergeants for the ensuing year. Each candidate is required, besides taking a written examination, to show his ability to command by taking charge of a squad of eight men and moving them about. The commissioned officers, also the sergeant-major and two orderly sergeants, are chosen by the School Committee. No promotion in rank is given unless the candidate has successfully passed all his studies for the preceding year. The school time devoted to training is but one hour per week, but in the fall and during the preparation for field-day extra, voluntary drills are held, and the ready response of the cadets in returning to such drills, shows the interest taken, which accounts to a great extent for the successes achieved. No regular drill instructor is provided, but the male teachers of the school take upon themselves the duties of this office and have proved very efficient, especially our principal. Although efforts were made in 1885, at the time of organization to have the city government provide suitable equipments, they were not successful, and so it was only through the enterprise and determination of the cadets themselves, ably seconded by a few citizens, that any progress was made in this direction. Since then these citizens, more especially the business men, have annually been called upon to contri- bute money for the support of the cadets, and these repeated demands have always met with a most hearty response. Such strong and willing support of this, the financial part, has greatly added to the success of the cadets. During the last two years the necessary funds have been raised by annual fairs, the latest of which is described at length by another article in this book. The first national flag was presented to the battalion by Hon. Eleazer Boynton of Boston. In 1890 the senior girls, through the influ- ence of Miss Wilder, presented the cadets with their first state flag. In 1899 a new national flag was presented by the sergeants of that year, and in 1900 the junior class presented a new state flag, so that the first set of colors, which is now torn and frayed from constant use, may be laid aside. It has been the custom to hold at the end of each year a prize drill and exhibition, when the two companies compete for a prize of ten dollars. Daring the year the companies are judged and marked on Monday drills, and any advantage which one may gain over the other goes toward helping it win the prize on this occasion. Up to the year 1895 these drills were held indoors, but since then field-days have been in vogue, and a large roomy field has proven a very great improvement over the cramped space of a hall. The judges for these drills, generally three in number, are chosen from among the commissioned officers of the state militia. A very important feature of these occasions has been the individual drill in the manual of arms for the Haskell medals, which have been presented every year since 1886 by Col. Edward H. Haskell, of Newton. For the first few years all the competitors were grouped in one squad and the medals awarded as first and second prizes. It was noticed, however, that the higher classmen generally succeeded in carrying off both prizes, which was rather discouraging to the fourth class cadets, and so two squads were formed, the senior, which contains all contes- tants, who have drilled one year or more and the junior, which contains all contestants who have not yet drilled a full year. A medal is awarded to the winner in each squad with no second prize. Commissioned offi- cers are not permitted to enter this contest. In 1890, as a result of the Gloucester Battalion visiting Lynn, the year before and giving an exhibition drill, the Second Mass. School Reg’t was formed, consisting of Wakefield, Lynn, Malden, Reading and Gloucester. Each year these battalions held a competitive drill in which the Gloucester boys always demonstrated the excellence of their work. The year 1894 was the last in which any competitive drill was held with out-of-town battalions and it was also the last year of the original Second Mass. School Reg’t. Since then Chelsea, the two Lynn Schools and Gloucester have met annually and given exhibition drills, and although no prizes are awarded, and the keen rivalry of the old Second Reg’t days is gone, such occasions tend to increase the efficiency of the battalions which participate. Last year regimental field-day was held for the first time in Gloucester and it was indeed a most important event in the history of the battalion. A set of rules was drawn up by the principals of the four schools participating, which should govern this field-day and also all succeeding ones. By these rules Gloucester received the right of line and appointment of colonel, which gave this office to Major Eliiott. As the local battalion wished to uphold its name of being hospitable, every effort was made to have the visiting battalions want for nothing, and once again, thanks to the aid of the citizens, success was not lacking. The lion’s share of the work has ever fallen, and therefore the lion’s share of praise should fall to our principal, who through the entire existence of the cadets has put forth every effort to make the Gloucester battalion second to none, and his efforts have ever been crowned with success.

HE Tenth Annual Officers’ Party was held at City Hall on Thursday evening, March 27, and although not as many attended as in former years, owing to the fact that it came during Holy Week, nevertheless it was in every way a most pronounced success, and totally eclipsed the parties of former years. Promptly at eight o’clock the matrons, Mrs. John J. Stanwood, Mrs. Geo. H. Newall, Mrs. Howard Steele, took their places at the right of the stage, amid a semi-circle of palms and potted plants, and here for the next hour they received the couples as they were ushered in by the officers. Soon after nine o’clock the grand march was formed, led by Maj. Chas. F. W. Wetterer and Miss Alice S. Babson, followed by the officers of the local battalion and those of the out-of-town battalions, and about seventy-five couples in civilian dress. The uniforms of the officers glittering with gold lace, and the handsome gowns of the young ladies made a charming and picturesque effect as they came down the hall in eights and sixteens. After the march came waltz, two-step and schottische in quick suc- cession, dancing being continued until two o’clock the following morn- ing, with an intermission at eleven o’clock, when the following supper was served in the common council chamber below by Westover and Foss, caterers, Boston. Menu. Escalloped Oysters, Lobster Salad, Chicken Salad, Rolls, Coffee, Ice Cream (variety), Orange Sherbert, Cake (assorted). Condit’s full orchestra of Boston furnished the music and made a highly favorable impression. Its selections were new and catchy, many of them being taken from the latest operatic successes, and nearly every dance was encored two and three times. The balcony was well filled with attentive spectators many of whom watched with eager eyes the movements of their sons and daugh- ters as they danced and enjoyed themselves on the floor below. Without doubt, the decorations were the best and on the most elaborate scale ever attempted in the hall. Long streamers of red, white and blue hung from the center of the ceiling and radiated to the railings of the balcony, while the balcony and the sides of the hall were draped with bunting. The stage also was decorated tastily with bunting, and along the front, rows of stacked guns supported the national and state flags of the battalion. The floor was under the general charge of Maj. Wetterer, assisted by Capts. Rowe and Ford, Adj. Mclnnis, Lieuts. Brooks, Marshall, Holloran and Swett, and Quartermaster Me Loud. THE BATTALION FAIR. E second annual fair of the Battalion was held Dec. 12, 13 and 14 at Mansfield hall and was a success in all ways, especially financially. The plan of holding a fair was first tried last year. As it proved a success then, it was again tried this year and it proved again successful and far above the expec- tations of the most sanguine. Mansfield Hall, where the fair was held, was tastily decorated for the occasion, and together with the several booths, trimmed with their respective class colors, pre- sented a fine appearance. The assortment of goods offered for sale was wide and varied, including fancy and plain work, canned goods, preserves, produce, ice cream and cake, candy, fish, coal and vegetables. Two new booths, the cane rack and knife board of the sergeants, and the shooting gallery of the Third Class Business Course, added to the enjoyment of the affair, and were in continual demand, especially among the boys. The Coun- try Store added immensely to the attractiveness of the hall. It was built of saplings and trimmed with the class colors, and its variety of articles made it a typical country store. Here one could get almost all of his wants supplied. He could find here the sundry articles that make up the stock and furnishings of the ordinary country store. The ante-room at the rear of the hall was decorated in a tasty manner with evergreen and laurel and here one was served with ices. On the first evening an entertainment was given by Symonds’ or- chestra and a choice programme was furnished throughout the evening. The sale continued the following evening and all the tables were well patronized. The few articles left were sold at auction on Saturday afternoon, and in the evening the fair was brought to a close by dancing from 8 until 12 o ' clock. The dance was well attended and was as suc- cessful as the sale on the days previous. The Senior Class, having the fancy work table, took in the highest amount, about $70 being realized by them. The entire net proceeds amounted to about $480, this being quite a material gain over the pro- ceeds of the preceding year. School spirit seemed to increase at this fair, and every one took hold and worked to make it a success, and thanks are especially due to the young ladies who officiated at the several tables and also to those who contributed articles. Already twenty new guns and equipments, which were sadly needed, have been purchased, besides a set of aiguillettes for the adju- tant, and part of the remainder will be devoted to paying the expenses of the two field days. The chairman of the entire affair was Major C. F. Wetterer, and he was assisted by the officers of the Battalion. This is the school paper and is edited each year by the Junior class, coming out once a month. This year completes its third volume and though there is still room for great development, yet it is progress- ing steadily and may hope in time to equal the best of school papers, if it is under the right management. We wish to compliment the man- agers of this year for their enterprise shown and the renovations made in respect to cover, size and contents, and we trust that ’04 will infuse life and energy into it still further.

The plan was new and daring, and met with but little approval from the class, as it was decided that seven girls would not be a fair representation of the whole class. Neverthe- less the young ladies were not daunted, and succeeded in presenting, on February 7th, at the Universalist Vestry, “Brass Buttons,” a bright little comedy in three acts. The night was pleasant and the audience large and appreciative. Promptly at eight o’clock the curtain rose, showing the apartments of Miss Milly O’Naire, where the young ladies were assembled for a little harmless gossip. The gathering is soon thrown into confusion by the announcement by Dodo, the maid, of the arrival at the hotel of S. Southerland Brefogle, Ensign, U. S. N. The second act opens with a party in the golf club house, given by the young ladies to their mascu- line friends, who, however, fail to appear, so they are forced to eat their lunch and drink their toasts alone. In the third act the girls give a leap-year dance, which is successful — with a big question mark after it. The cast of characters was as follows : — Mrs. Eva Wildwood, ...... Miss Susie M. Rowe. A young widow who will never marry again. Miss Milly O’Naire, ...... Miss Madeline S. Rowe. Who hates men, but gets loved without them. Madeline, her cousin, ..... Miss Margie Severance. Who loves candy and weeps easily. Marigold, another cousin, .... Miss Helen B. Frost. Who takes naps. Aunt Flossie, an athletic old lady, . . Miss Marion F. Stickney. Miss Cornelia Brownell Darwin, • . . .Miss Dora Lawson. A spinster of uncertain age, who has never been kissed, and loves to quote from favorite authors. Dodo Ginty, . . . . . . Miss Agnes A Alexander. The O’Naire’s irrepressible maid, who went to school with Mrs. Wildwood. The interest of the plot centres around Ensign Brefogle. As the only eligible young man at a summer hotel, he is decidedly popular. In fact they are all in love with him, while the main question seems to be, “ Whom does he love ? ” Each of the three cousins fondly imagines that she is the favored one, and each in her self-confidence vows that he will give her a brass button at the party as a token of his affection. They all secure the coveted trophy, but their hopes are somewhat dashed when Mrs. Wildwood calmly announces her engagement to the same officer. Poor old Miss Darwin suffered the most, however. Taking advantage of the fact that it was a leap-year party, she had proposed to Brefogle and had been rejected. But it all ended happily, with man} ' congratulat ions and cheers for Brefogle. The piece gave ample opportunity for local hits, which was taken advantage of, and everybody, from Principal Bacheler down, was rapped a little. The hits, however, were not malicious, and were soon for- given, although a few, such as “ Bah Jove ” and “ Git on to my coive,” still cling to those whom they were aimed at. The young ladies all took their parts remarkably well, especially considering that it was their first appearance before the footlights. In fact, the whole affair was socially and financially, to quote a remark of one of the audience, a “ howling success,” This is appreciated the more when one realizes that the seven girls received no help, nor even encouragement from outside sources. Seventy dollars was cleared, which was handed to Mr. Bacheler to he spent for the school. Acting upon Miss Wilder’s advice, a set of Century Dictionaries was the in- vestment of the well-earned money. THE FRENCH PLAYS. On the night of May 8th two French plays were given in High School Hall, where a new stage had to be constructed pro tem. The first was produced by three boys, and the second by seven girls, all members of the upper classes in the school. In giving these there were many obstacles to be overcome, foremost among which was the drilling which the participants must have. That the affair was a suc- cess is due almost entirely to the persistence and perseverance of the teacher under whose supervision the play was given, Miss Me Allester, the head of the French department in our school. The plays were given to raise a fund to increase the library of the department men- tioned, and though the success financially was only fairly good, yet the experience was well worth the pains. The pupils were drilled in their parts by Prof. Thurwanger, presi- dent of the Cercle Francais de 1’ Alliance, of Boston, assisted by Miss Me Allester. Moreover, two dress rehearsals, one of them public, were held, which gave the participants a chance to accustom themselves to the glaie of the footlights — for most of them were up for the first time. The opening farce was called “Un Quart d’Heure Avant sa Mort,” and was produced by the following cast: — Le Vicomte Alcide de Pontjardin, .... Horace S. Ford A wealthy young man, who has spent all his money and is about to commit suicide. Stanislas Merlerant, ....... Edward B. Rowe. A wealthy Frenchman, collector of curio firearms. Brounderby, ....... Addison G. Brooks. An Englishman collecting antiques for Madame Tussaud’s waxworks. The story goes as follows : Portjardin, with his money gone, is about to commit suicide with a sixteenth century pistol which he has picked up at a junk store. He is, however, interrupted by two new- comers, a French collector of firearms and an Englishman collecting antiques, who, seeing that the pistol is a valuable relic, bid for its pos- session. The astonished Portjardin then learns that the Frenchman is the father of his sweetheart, and through him is induced to give up his suicidal attempt and lunch with him, his father-in-law elect. The three parts were very well taken, and the bidding for the pistol was noticea- bly well done. The second play, “ On sont done ces Messieurs ? ” was somewhat more elaborate, consisting of two acts, the first being principally the conversation of mother and daughter, with some of the maid’s mishaps interspersed ; the second being the party given by them, in which all the young ladies appear, but all the gentlemen either send their regrets or excuses and fail to turn up. The young ladies, left to amuse them- selves, enjoy a minuet, which closes the performance. Although some of the parts were extremely difficult, yet the young ladies acquitted themselves remarkably well, showing perfect familiarity with their roles. Nothing but commendation should be given them. The cast of characters was as follows : — Madame de la Viell e-Roche, • Annie M. Warner Mother of Virginie. Virginie, Helen F. Livingston Who thinks life in the country very dull. Aglae, ......... Bessie S Woodbury The maid who has mishaps. Candide de la Franchise, Bertha E. Mahony Who knows a little English. Yiolante de Creve-Coeur, Eveline B. Lyle Who knows that she is pretty. Agnes de la Belle-Source, ..... Helen M. Procter Who is rather timid. Diane du Haut-Ton, ..... Alice Stearns Babson Who is rich and haughty. ri n n 1 i i M i r n i m i i i i i i -r i t i , i n , uuur “ Canst keep a secret ?” “ Yes” The Phi Epsilon Lambda is a society connected with the class of 1902. It was organized in the early part of this year, and consists of the Senior boys. One of the principal tenets of the members is vocalism on par- ticular occasions, and to fill the midnight air with notes of harmony. Although an unwritten law, there is a tacit understanding that a “ classical ” song shall be substituted for a motion to adjourn at all society assemblies. The society’s membership is limited to fourteen. At present the quota is full, and the possibility of a vacancy is small indeed. Any- one who has swallowed the title page of his Latin grammar, and has washed it down with a “ solution ” of H 2 S0 4 and lamp-black ; who shall have dared to tell the janitor that the society unanimously recom- mend the dusting of the seats in their “ sanctuary ” previous to their meeting, and who shall present himself in good health on the day fol- lowing, — these are the simple requisites for membership, — will not leave a vacancy in the society. Harmony has ever been the guiding star of the Phi Epsilon Lamb- da. It is but a few more weeks that we shall exist as a society, and while we are enjoying each other’s good fellowship and are ushering out the nights with our songs, it might be appropriate to think that “ Ere long the silver chord will break, And we no more as now shall sing.” FRATRES.

Frowned upon and held in contempt by the Seniors, derided and laughed at by our own class, as well as the Sophomores and Freshmen, the Junior secret society has prospered as never before, even in the days before its organization was made public. The formation of this society was anticipated centuries ago, for the gods of Mt. Olympus were paving the way. For our especial ben- efit Columbus was sent to discover America, that we might have a countr} Gloucester was founded that we might have a home, and the High School was erected that we might have a starting point. Then we came into the world. Although we did not know each other’s names, yet we felt the bonds which drew us nearer together at all times. At last all came to the High School. The time was ripe, and the society was formed with ten members. was elected Majesticus Profundus by his brothers, with as Sub-Majesti- cus. Grander and grander grew our society. Greater and greater be- came its leader, until finally it was decided to make known our exist- ence to the world at large. The news was received with ridicule and laughter. Our notices placed on the blackboard had Q. E. D.’s, C. O. D s, etc., written after them by irreverent vandals. Slowly the tide of public opinion turns, and slowly have they come to see us in our true lioLt. “ Senatus Sawibus ” still calls out O “ Question,” and Profundus murmurs “ The deed is done,” while the glorious body of brothers cry out majestically, “ Long live the Xenzerafenty, Omega Theta Epsilon forever ! ” Sub-Majesticus.

THE BASKET BALL TOURNAMENT. During the spring of 1901 the editors of the Tolmama, the year book of the graduating class, offered a silver cup, for which the basketball teams of the different classes should play, and the team winning it three successive years should have possession of the cup. Last year the team representing the Sophomore class won the championship of the school and the possession of the cup for one year. The games this year were played at the gymnasium of the Y. M. C. A. on the three successive Thursday evenings, begin- ning with April 10. Throughout the series the games were intensely interesting and exciting, as the teams were all evenly matched. The Sophomores seemed to have things their own way, and by their superior team work defeate 1 the three opposing teams, one after the other. As the Sophomore class won the tournament last year, and the Sophomore class won again this year, they each have one point to their credit, out of a necessary three, by which a team receives ent ire possession of the It was very gratifying to the members of the various teams to see so many of their classmates present at the various games, and to hear the cheers and class yells of the “ rooters.” At the last game all were inspired and urged on to the highest pitch by the presence of the fac- ulty, who attended in a body. The result of the tournament in games was as follows : — cup. Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, Freshmen, 0 won ; 3 lost. 1 u 2 “ 3 “ 0 “ 2 “ i « 02 BASKET-BALL TEAM BASKET BALL TEAMS. 1902. Wetterer, g.

We are obliged to own up to no foot-ball, base-ball, or basket-ball team representing the school, although there is good material for such. To be sure, the classes have basket-ball teams, and are supposed to have base-ball teams, but in general there are two or three outside players on each team, which, of course, does not add to the interest. We ascribe this lack of athletics to the fact that there are not more than enough pupils to run the things which are already connected with the school. Perhaps some day athletics will take a boom, but that day is quite a while off as yet. The basket-ball tournament called forth the greatest amount of interest shown towards sports this year. We had hoped that the girls might have such a contest, but up to date we have heard of only one team formed, the Sophs. The latter class seems to be the only one to thrive in these games, much to the disappointment of the upper class-men. Several games of base-ball have been played by teams representing the different classes, in which the Seniors seem to have held fast to their motto, “Win a game and disgrace your class.” However, with fourteen to pick from, excuses are in order. The question seems to us, “Is Binso’s bat porous or per- forated?” We have at last found out why Swett will play ball, after nea rly dislocating his jaw. There are grand chances to argue with the umpire. The Soph yell : — “ Go back to the woods.” (6) ’03 BASKET-BALL TEAM. A WORD FROM 1901. One beautiful afternoon in May, 1902, .Madame G. H. S. sat on the rocks just as close to the water as was safe. Every one is acquainted with Madame G. H. S. in spirit, but not every one has seen her. As she sat there comfortably surrounded by her rugs and cushions, she looked more beautiful than ever. Although her years numbered fifty-two, she appeared as a young maiden. Beau- tiful ? Oh, words are inadequate ! Tall and graceful, with hair full of the color which must have shown on Perseus’ shield as he went to slay Medusa ; but that which drew attention most was the look of in- conceivable wisdom that shown forth from her eyes. An amused smile had been playing about madame’s lips for a long time, when suddenly she broke into a rippling laugh. 44 Ah, yes ! ” she said, and I know those dead looking rocks ’were eavesdropping ready to tell the news to every wave, 44 Ah, yes, the old wonder and the new old wonder, — ’01 and ’02. The ’01 people did think their class a wonder, too. However, it is a failing common to every class, for only the other day I heard a ' 02 girl say to one of last year’s girls, ‘ Really, our class is a fine class, truly it is, ' and the ’01 girl replied heartily, 4 Yes, your class is a grand one,’ but 1 noticed a rather troubled expression on the latter’s face as the ’02 girl passed on, and she said to herself, 4 Why couldn’t we have known what a record ’02 was going to make? We might have worked harder.’ “ Well, perhaps 02 will eclipse last year’s class somewhat, but just now the naughty ones have 4 dropped their noses from the sun,’ as they were advised to do last year by ’02 ' s members, and I shouldn’t wonder if, in their life for which my teaching was only a partial preparation, the mignonette and the jacqueminot, as well as 4 the modest violet, would blossom. “ Let me see, — what has become of the class of ’01 ? One mem- ber has already entered the bonds of matrimony. I suppose the others gaze at marriage with the same glance they cast at those distant hills covered with blue haze, endowing them with fairy attributes, and not caring to approach for fear the briar-roses and fern-built grottos of their dreams should prove to be thorns and sand-hills. Many are at college and normal school, while others have entered the business world. A large number of the girls are teaching or preparing to teach. They are all advancing, I feel sure. “ I overheard a conversation between a girl belonging to last year’s class and a ’02 girl the other day. Evidently the ’02 girl had been asking for advice, for the other was saying, ‘ Why, I graduated only last year ! I’m not wise enough to give you advice. Even if I did, do you suppose you would follow it?’ Do people generally? But there are a few conclusions I have reached, and I will tell you a little. “ 4 It seems to me that one’s development depends largely upon realizing the relative importance of things. It does not much matter if one’s hat does not turn down in the back with a decided line, as the hats do this season, but it does matter a great deal if one comes to look upon any sort of evil without a twinge. 44 ‘The reason those martyrs of old could bring themselves to suffer horrible deaths for their faith was because they realized that if they were obliged to give up their principles, which formed their souls, the individualities in them, only living death was left. Which do you prefer, the skin of an orange or its rich juicy p ulp ? ’ ” Now the sun was very low in the west and the waves rolled in upon the rocks noisily. The wind, too, had changed, and the sky had become gray and dreary-looking. These signs seemed to recall mad- ame’s thoughts, and she rose hurriedly and walked up toward the path, saying, as she did so, 44 1 loved ’01.” ’ 01 . ’04 BASKET- BALL TEAM. ADVICE TO UNDER CLASSMEN. “ So sad , so sweet , the days that are no more .” The glorious class of 1902, the class that will never, never fade away into oblivion, is now about to depart from her alma mater. She has passed her pleasant winter in the life of the G. H. S., and is now about to blossom forth in a new spring. Everybody will miss her. Even the teachers, in years to come, will think with pleasure of that illustrious class which is no more, except in their everlasting memory. And now, before we leave these dear old halls for the last time, permit us to give some advice to our under-classmates. 1903. You, first, Juniors, we congratulate upon having another year to spend in the home that we are now leaving. How can we impress upon your minds, for you surely cannot realize it now, wdiat unuttera- ble joy should be yours, for this one reason alone ! You have spent the happy autumn of your High School life, and will soon be shovelling the paths of your winter days. May they be as happy as ours ! A few of you, who go to college, may indeed form friendships more noble and illustrious, but you will never look with scorn upon your High School associations. Thus, Juniors, we hope you will make the most of the one short year that is before you, and strive to become as nearly perfect as your predecessors as you can Juniors, whatever happens when you get to be Seniors, don’t let your heads outgrow your hats. Be dignified, and set a worthy exam- ple for your under-classmates, but don’t be puffed up, for the Bible itself says, “To be vain is an abomination to the Lord.” Even if you did get three prizes in the declamation contest this winter, you may fare worse next year. Remember, you still have that reputation to maintain. Be sure, also, next year, to win all the prizes in composi- tion, or you will fall far behind the class of ’02. We have heard, indirectly, that your class is very deficient in the dead languages. Of course, following such a brilliant class as is ours, this insufficiency is seemingly increased. But when you become ini- tiated in the mysteries of llomer and Vergil, we hope you will become more interested, and study a little harder, without the aid of those quadrupeds (we won’t name them, but we have seen many of you trot- ting on them just before the French recitation), things which 1902 never used, of course. And now, knowing that you are a class sensible enough to abide by the advice of your elders, we wish you every success in your senior year. 1904. Sophomores, you are soon to become Juniors ! A most remarka- ble change ! You must now lay aside your knee-pants (those of you who haven’t already, and assume those more like your fathers . You must settle down to business now. Be as jolly as you wish, without depriving yourselves totally of the dignity which must be yours when you get to be Seniors ; for a thing once gone is gone forever, and dig- nity is no exception to this rule. Next year falls upon you the management of the Crimson and White. You have already shown yourselves remarkable in the literary world of the G. H. S., and a good deal will be expected of you. In order to make the paper a success every member of your class should and must take hold and help. You are now probably getting over the first effects of “ Love’s Sweet Dream,” and can settle down to good, hard work. Your sum- mer days are over. May the fair autumn breezes of your school life waft you on to glory ! 1905. And now we come to our babies, the Freshmen. In the first place let us sincerely congratulate you upon your success in “ capturing,” as you call it, rather captivating, we think, certain officers in the school battalion (Scotchmen, too !) and a certain well known man of letters. We hope you will always remain faithful to them, or if you forget them when they are gone, and seek to capture their successors, we hope, at least, that you will not break their hearts. Freshmen, 3’ou have begun well ! Keep on ! Be kind and motherly to the new children who, in a few months, will enter the High School for the first time. Don’t look above them, for you really aren’t much taller, but teach them your own captivating charms, and advise them as best you can. Already has the springtime of your school life ebbed away. Prepare now for a calm and peaceful summer. M. F. s., ’02. ' 05 BASKET-BALL TEAM 1901. Richard K.

Y e Conversation of a Young c Child e to its Mother, in Y e Gallerie at Y e Officers ' Ball, 1902 . I. “ 0, mother, prithee name to me that lordly form, I pray, That strutteth up and down the hall in bold and bright array.” u My child, it is the Adjutant ! but speak with bated breath, For should he hear thy idle talk, thy portion might be death.” II. “ 0, mother ! I am terrified ; my heart is in my throat, Yet what are all those shiny things that dangle from his coat ? ” “My child, I do not know their name, Twill not with me abide ; Hut they have cost such tedious toil that they are worn with pride.” III. “ 0, mother, is he very rich, and does he own it all, The music and the pretty flags, the people and the hall ? ” “ 0, no, my child, what dost thou think ? for truly no man could ; But then, my love, he thinks he does, and that is just as good.” IV. “ (), mother, if I labor hard, and try to do my best, Might I some day become like him, in martial glory dress ' d ? ” “ My child, I dare not look so high ; but strive to be content, If, climbing. to a lesser height, thou art a President ! ” Aunt Samantha at the Prize Speaking. Yes, Jeremiah, I went, I heard, and I came back from the High School prize speakin’ to-night, and I ’spose I might just as well start right in now and tell you all I kin remember from beginnin’ to end, and then you won’t keep forever interrogatin’ me about it. Fust and foremost, they started in with singin’, at least that’s what it was ’sposed to be, and they sang off and on the whole evenin’, kind of to relieve the m’not’ny, I s’pose, don’t you know. Wei’, there was one gal in that chorus that ’specially took my eye, and I kept lookin ' at her every minute. She was real pretty and plump, and I heard a lady settin’ next me say as how her name was Wheeler. And I bet you ten to one, Jeremiah Jenkins, she’s the self-same gal we saw in swimmin’ down to the pint last summer. And now for the speakers. Fust there was a boy got up and spoke about a frog that a man stuffed with bullets. He got the whole audience a roarin’, and then he went way back and sat down somewhere or other ; I sat so far back myself I couldn’t quite follow him. Then came a gal (there war’nt but three gal speakers in all), she was a sophy more, I b’lieve it said on the back of my program, and she made the tears come right in my eyes, she spoke so kinder solemn like. Next came a little feller, in knee-pants, and I was real kind of as tonished, don’t you know, he spoke so well. Then the boy who got the fust prize marched up on the platform. He was a great, big, broad as he is long feller, and he spoke about Memorial Day, and there warn’t no one in the audience so surprised as he was himself when they called him up on the stage to get the prize. By the way, Jeremiah, they had the prizes done up in envelopes, real sort of neat and nice. Next came young Brooks, Deacon Brooks’ son, over across the canal. He tried to imitate two women folks, and he real kind er suc- ceeded like, and got the third prize. The second gal that spoke got second prize. Warn’t that funny, now ? But she deserved it all right. Her piece had lots of love in it, and somehow or other, Jeremiah, it made me think of old times, when you used to come a courtin’ me. For the life of me I can’t remember all of the speakers now, but I do ’specially recall a little short feller, in long pants — Mac something or other. I thought sure he must be a freshman, but come to find out, he’s a Senior, and graduates next June. My, but he must have brains in his head, though! And I mustn’t forgit to mention the boy that got the fourth prize. He imitated an old Jew that went to court Shakespeare (I believe that’s what the program said, but seems to me Shakespeare Avas a man, so it couldn’t be) ; anyway he was simply fine, and I thought sure he’d get the first prize. To tell you the truth, Jeremiah, if I’d had my say, I ' d have divided the money equally between ’em all. 1 most forgot about the composition prizes. Just think, Jeremiah, they was all seniors that got them. What a brilliant class they must be ! Deacon Brooks’ boy (he’s as fat as butter) got third composition prize, too. The other three were all gals, and the whole of them looked as though they’d like to fall through the floor when they got up on the platform, but they didn’t, and oh, dear, Jeremiah, my stomach’s so weak a talkin’ so much. Sakes alive, if that man ain’t a snorin’. And here I’ve wasted three-quarters of an hour, eleven o’clock at night, to tell him all this so keerfully. Well, he’ll sleep down in this kitchen all night afore I ' ll wake him up. Our Library The Garden of Swords — The Officers’ Closet. A Duet with an Occasional Chorus — Glee Club.

A Pastoral. TO A. R. T R, ’02. O, slender youth, with orbs of heaven’s blue, Sweet bud, too frail for nineteen hundred two ! Thou shouldst have bloomed on Ida’s sunny steep, And with thy fat-faced Phyllis kept the sheep ! Thou wert not formed to dwell in dusty town, To vex thy gentle mind with teacher’s frown ; But like the timid fawn, thy namesake fair, Thou shouldst in shady coverts have thy lair, And gambol, browse and frisk without a care. 1st Pupil (hearing loud noises in the study-room, — “ What’s all that racket about ? ” 2nd Pupil — “ Oh, McDonald is walking around the room to put his name on the board.” X (looking at the picture of the officers), “ Seems to me there is less finery displayed in this picture than usual.” Y , “ Yes, Mac forgot his aigulets.” One of the green little Freshies confidently asserts that sculptors are stone-cutters.
