Not only has its influence been felt here, but it has even spread to other high schools; so now the Service Club is one of the best-known and most worth-while societies. In recognition and appreciation of the interest which she has taken in us as individuals and as a body, through the Service Club which she has founded, we, the class of nineteen hundred and twenty-four, dedicate this yearbook to Miss Lillian McAllester, one of our dearly loved teachers. 6 THE SENIOR FLICKER Table of Contents Picture of Miss McAllester Dedication .....

We have been very fortunate this year in having such an interested corps of faculty helpers. Without them we would never haye succeeded in con- tinuing our publication. With Miss Harris as our leader and Miss Peterson, although a new comer among our ranks, an able assistant, the literary material has been a credit to the school. Mrs. Woodruff, also recently entered in the faculty, has made herself indispensable to us, with the group of secretaries which she has so capably trained. One of the Beacon ' s strongest props has been Mr. Richards, who has worked untiringly with the business staff. To him we owe thanks for the financial success of our publication. It is not the editorial staff alone that deserves praise, but the business staff — and especially, our advertising manager, Andrew Murphy, who has hustled for “ads” constantly. We wish to thank all our advertisers who so cheerfully and so willingly gave us their support throughout the year in the form of financial backing. Without their support we could not sell the Beacon and she would have foundered on the rocks at the beginning of the voyage. Now our good ship has safely come back to port after successfully sailing another school year. Again, we thank them heartily and hope they will be amply repaid for their advertisements.

President Porter was about to have an autobiography of himself published, and there on my desk lay a pile of neatly folded papers ready to be typed. While glancing over a few of the pages, my attention was immediately attracted by a brief account of his entire Freshman class of 1924. (Seniors, notice! Even the President of the United States had been a Freshman once.) The account read somewhat as follows: In September it w T as a bashful crowd of Freshmen that entered upon the beginning of their High School career. But they were soon welcomed by their brother Seniors who acknowledged them at a Halloween Party given in October. The affair proved to be a successful one and all enjoyed the evening. Not long after the opening of school, Principal Ringer informed us, as students of the High School, of the work expected. I am sure that we all obeyed his instructions. The Thanksgiving Club Program was presented by Freshmen under the directorship of Miss Bailey. Mildred Shute took the part of a small girl, while Alice Whittemore proved to be a charming mother, and Elliott Anderson, a splendid dad. The fairies who appeared in the play were both clever and graceful. The moral of this drama was, “Be thankful for all things” (even if you should be unfortunate enough to have hash on Thanks- giving). These performers acted their parts almost professionally and a bril- liant future was predicted for them. During Good English Week a contest was held to decide the winner of the Roosevelt Trophy. Alice Whittemore and Helen Handran were the Freshman representatives. The two girls gave splendid speeches and made a fine showing for their classmates. The orchestra included three Freshman boys: Kline, Thomas, and Steele. These boys were faithful members of our orchestra and added much to the violin and flute sections. During the year, Alderman Brooks gave us an interesting speech con- cerning her trip to Washington. Her remarks were instructive and greatly appreciated. At the Presentation, Company C’s prize squad — Robert Callahan, Rus- sel Spinney, Wilfred Brown, Owen Steele, Arthur Goodwin, Philip Doyle, Harry Christenson, and Frank Welsh — carried off the medals on their manly chests. Outside of the prize squad, the Freshman boys provided background by acting as wallflowers. The Freshman girls, however, were well represented in the Grand March. The entire Freshman class was thus initiated into the social life of the school and the afore-mentioned chests of the prize squad members have continued to grow more manly day by day, because of this honor. SAWYER FREE LIBRARY . GLOUCESTER, MASS. 01930 26 THE SENIOR FLICKER A new sport had been introduced the preceding year among the girls and continued the following year. This was rifle practice, and all found it to be a great pleasure. Grace Burnham was captain of the girls’ basketball team. The remain- ing members were Margaret Martin, Muriel De Souza, Pauline Brayman, Margaret Whittmarsh, and Eleanor Groves. The school team for the year included Margaret Whittmarsh, Grace Burnham, and Margaret Martin. These girls proved to be active leaders in all sports. The Freshman members who assisted in supporting our Beacon Staff for the year were Owen Steele, Marjorie Robinson, and Eleanor Parsons. Fame is not dependent upon size, — we have already learned that from our artists, Thaddeus Call and Walter Aho. Their clever cartoons have added many pleasant pages to the Beacon, and we all expect great things from them in the future. Several clubs were formed this year, and as the Freshmen were quite bold, they took part in most of the different associations. The Sophomore and Freshman Latin classes formed a Latin Club which they called the Olympic Council. Miss Austin secured some stereoptican slides and gave us an interesting talk on Pompeii during one club period. To make us acquainted with the Old Roman “Vestal Virgin Drill,” several Freshman girls and some Sophomore girls executed the “Drill” for the benefit of the Olympic Council and the Travel Club. In another club period, Pro- fessor Rice from Boston University talked to the whole school on the necessity of Latin. Latin baseball became very popular this year in the Freshman class. On a Friday afternoon, the Freshmen met the Sophomores to play the first game of the series of three. These games were to decide the championship. Woe unto the Sophomores! The Freshmen won the first game by the score of 59 to 53 runs. Our class fulfilled every duty as they came to it. If the future is to be judged by the past, all are justified in their expectations. It has been a class of material from which great things should eventually come. Annah York Burns, Marjorie Robinson, Fre4 S. Melgroom, G. Lovell Tarr, Class of ’27 THE SENIOR FLICKER 27 HISTORY OF THE SOPHOMORE CLASS, 1925 One memorable day in October, 1922, there entered Gloucester High School a large group of puzzled boys and girls, who wandered through the halls, losing their way, finding it again, finally becoming accustomed to the building. This group was known as the Freshman Class. After they had a class meeting, at which they learned that they excelled in numbers any Freshman class which had been known for some time, they determined to excell in other things as well ; mainly, class spirit and school loyalty. This determination began to be fulfilled when members of the Freshman class participated in the school programs given for the various holidays. These holidays included Armistice Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and Memorial Day. Right here the upper-classmen realized the talent in the Freshman class. The girls formed a splendid hockey team and tied a game with the Juniors. The girls who made the High School Basketball team were Mary Sonia, Edith Maddix, and Ellen McEacheren. The Freshman Football Team won from the Juniors, but lost to the Sophomores. The lineup was as follows: Ross, Kramer, Witham, Smith, Hanson, Scammon, Souza, Griffin, Capillo, Lane, Oliver, Erskine, and McDonald. The Freshman members of the Beacon Staff were Evelyn Kane, Paula Patch, Fletcher Wonson, and Helen Polisson. The winners of the Sawyer Medals were Beatrice Madsen and Horace Erskine. At the close of our Freshman year at the Annual Field Day exercises, Franklin Bray won the Junior Haskell Medal. Thus ended our Freshman year and we came back to school the next fall ready to begin our Sophomore year with a bang ! Under the direction of Miss Austin the Sophomore Latin class combined with the Freshman classes and formed a Latin Club called, “The Olympic Council.” The officers elected were all Sophomores: Horace Erskine, Lempi Martin, Fletcher Wonson, and Beatrice Madsen. A club program given un- der the auspices of the “Council” proved to be both interesting and instructive. At the interclass speaking contest for the Roosevelt trophy, the speakers from our class were Evelyn Kane and Martha Burnham. Although the trophy was won by Frances Morong, a Senior speaker, both of our speakers were meritable representatives of ’26. The members of the Sophomore class on the Beacon Staff this year are Evelyn Kane and Beatrice Madsen. ‘26 is full of “good sports” and their school spirit is shown by their appearance in athletics. The boys on the football squad were Scammon, Erskine, and Ross. The track team boasted two Sophomores: “Smut”, (Allan) Smith and Horace Erskine. Scammon, Erskine, “Hank” Souza, and “Budsie” Ross decided to win more glory than they had attained »in football, so they were selected from candidates for the baseball team. Daniels, Wilkins, and Pomeroy also made the team. The girls, not to be outclassed in the show of ‘ sports , went out for basketball, determined to win. Those who made the team are E. McEeach- eren, Grace Sonia, C. Meuse, A Vibert, and E. Maddix. A few interclass games were played and the Sophomores won a game from the Freshman team. 28 THE SENIOR FLICKER So ends our history but remember that — There is a class in Gloucester High — That’s full of “pep” and loyalty, Who has the slogan, “never die” — Who is a friend to everyone, Who couldn’t frown and wouldn’t sigh, And to whom is always said, “well done”. Truly, there is a class like this, A class that lives in joy and bliss — It’s the Sophomore class of ’26. Martha Burnham, ’26 HISTORY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS In Spain in the year of our Lord 1490 a great proclamation was issued. It stated that in a land where no European had traveled, a group of the wisest, cleverest, prettiest, and most talented people would astound the world with their achievements. It went on to state that when this group, first came together a warning would be given from the heavens, which would guide all the curious seekers of adventure to this history-making body. In Spain at this time there was an Italian named Columbus. He had no claim to distinction except a little parlor trick which he had invented; namely, the standing of an egg on its end. Now Chris decided that it would be quite nice if he were able to find this group at once. So he went to the Queen, who was quite taken up by his Italian beauty, and he hoodwinked enough money out of her to pay for the purchase of ships and supplies for his journey. There is no need of an accounting here of what took place ; we all know that instead of the illustrious group he had tried to find, all he found were dusky maidens, a lot of land, and a few shiploads of fools’ gold. We also know that he returned home a sadder and wiser man. We will skip over a few years, four hundred and thirty-four to be exact. Shining in the heavens a light dimmed all of its competing stars. The great and wise men pondered over this strange phenomenon. Various opinions were given as to its origin and its purpose. But in that great country only one man remembered the prophecy which his great-great-grandfather’s grand- father had heard, and passed on to his ancestors. Pedro, for this was his name, was ordained, being chosen for this work for his remarkable powers. Calling into play one of these powers, he was transferred instantly to the wonder of wonders, the cause of the light, the Junior Class of 1925. Pedro was appalled by the sight that met him ; beauty — not the kind that is only skin deep — met his eyes on every side. He asked a passer-by who these beauties were. The one interrogated replied, “High School girls, Juniors without a doubt. That class is the whole cheese hereabouts.” The young men, too, had an air of superiority that marked them from that common herd, the Freshmen, the Sophomores, and the Seniors. Pedro concentrated his abnormal mind and was able to look back at the past activities of this notable group. He saw them entering the School as Freshmen, green as the grass they trod under foot. He saw them as Soph- THE SENIOR FLICKER 29 omores, sophisticated and bearing that air of wisdom that marks one just out of the Freshman year. He saw them in the early part of their Junior year, leading and setting an example that the other members of the school profited by. Throughout his reviewal of the Class’s past he saw Knowles, Johnson, McLean, Parsons, Whynot, and a multitude of lesser lights, fighting their way to victory on gridiron and diamond. In scholarship he saw Mills, Clark, Madsen and Webber, setting a mark that the others strove to attain. In military work he saw Mills, Johnson, Taylor, and Webber standing out from the rest of the pack. And finally in beauty and popularity he saw McDonald, Dickerson, the Addison Street tribe, Brown, and too many others to enu- merate here. After this reviewal of the past life he tried to pierce the dark which veiled the future, but in this he was unsuccessful. For what person be there who can ever hope to look high enough among the pinnacles of fame and discern the topmost among them, The Junior Class, 1925? A. L. S., ’25 THINGS THAT MATTER (An Historical Sketch of the Class of 1924) The action takes place in the distant future. The scene is laid in Room Ten, Gloucester High School. The schoolroom has a slightly domed ceiling of ground glass, through which light comes into the room. There are no windows. No lighting fixtures are visible, but, when necessary, indirect lighting is obtained from hidden sources behind a moulding. The positions of the various planets are traced in thin black lines on the ceiling in their relative positions. The walls have maps painted on them in very light colors, yet they are distinct and accurate. Transportation and communication lines are also shown. A large globe stands in one corner. The room contains about nine mammoth chairs, comfortable and in good taste. They are movable, as are the desks. They had not been advertized to correct bad posture — if they had, they wouldn’t have. They are just comf’y chairs, such as we see beside a fireplace at the present time. In general the chairs and desks are in a semi-circular position, with the teacher’s at the axis. Each desk has a shelf of reference books. Various instruments dealing with astronomy and of historical value lie about slightly covered with dust. Orange dominates the color scheme, but gray and black, and the blues and greens of the maps tone down the otherwise overcharged atmosphere. At the rise of the curtains, the students are sprawled over their chairs; many are deeply engrossed in ponderous books. All seem tall and thin; most of them wear glasses. One young man sings lustily from the depths of his chair. (The permanent history teacher being delayed, a promising young teacher will take charge.) Immediately after the rise of the curtain the teacher enters and introduces herself. She is extremely attractive, her hair, coal black, is bobbed and worn in the present Parisian mode; only a trifle longer. She wears large antique earrings; she is pale, except for her lips and nostrils, which are interestingly drawn in delicate lines, and are of an old-china-red hue. Her gown is of burnt-orange silk with a bold futuristic design in browns and greys; a slendering panel effect is noticed in the back. It is cut square at the neck; with one-quarter length sleeves. Her voice is soft, calm ; it comes from below her chest, and carries well. The students gradually stir, the singing stops; somebody gasps, and the gasp seems suspended in the air, which has become electrified. 30 THE SENIOR FLICKER Teacher: What work are you responsible for today? Star Pupil (standing) : We were to discuss Labor Unions, and in- dustrial conditions of the present time. Teacher: That is fine; I have a friend who is prominent in such af- fairs. Do you know the most vigorous labor agitator of this age? Pupil (standing, pauses): Charles Pew! — yes, and you know he was graduated from this school, too! He was in my Dad’s class, the class of 1924 — that was some class, so my Dad says. Why, my Dad said that when his class came in, the school had to be rebuilt and an addition made, because of the intellectual greatness of the students. Then the principal, thinking he could not do the class justice, resigned. They had to search high and low to find one who was suitable for them. Finally they discovered Mr. Ringer, who, with his “master hand,” guided them over many a rough bit of the way and stood always as an understanding friend. Teacher: If you could improve upon your English, you would perhaps do as well as Priscilla Moore, who won the inter-class Prize Speaking contest in her Freshman year. The pupils of Gloucester High School, especially that marvelous class of 1924, have always been known for their literary ability, and through the Beacon many have gained fame and fortune. You recall also that Priscilla Davis and Francis Jenney received Sawyer Medals in their Freshman year. Pupil: Yes, my Dad told me about the Beacon. He said Ruth Ricker won out in a competition naming the new magazine. They had to start a school paper that year because the Seniors were unable to keep up with the Freshmen, and they needed something in which to record the events. They had a boys’ cooking class then, too ; Waldo Story started it, and all the prospective bachelors joined. Gee, those were happy days. Teacher: Yes, those days were jolly and light-hearted, but they were suddenly saddened during the Sophomore year by the death of one of their classmates, Myron L. Quinlan. Pupil: My Dad told me that part way through the career of that brilliant class, their thoughts were dangerously disturbed by the toot and hissing of donkey engines, the fall of bricks, and the incessant pounding of the eight-eighty-a-day carpenter. That was when the addition was being built, and the students suffered terrible inconveniences by being forced to walk to the Peabody Building and the “Y” in all kinds of weather. But Dad said that that only dampened curls and feet ; the spirit of the class re- mained intact. Teacher: You surprise me with your knowledge of these really im- portant events. We have wandered ' somewhat from our subject, but I am sure there can be no harm in studying these things that matter. Do you know anything about the athletes of that day? Pupil: Why — yes, in his Sophomore year, Ford Martin began to work up in track, as did Frank Jenney also. Margaret Peeples began to reach out for laurels in basketball in her Sophomore year. Then Martin, Jenney, and Connors, won their first recognition in military drill. In 1922 Connors got into football and stuck there. Raymond Wardrop came out strong in football, too, but at the end of his Sophomore year Wardrop left school and went on the Massachusetts Nautical Training Ship. Ruth Brown also left then and went to Mt. Ida for a year, but returned again to G. H. S. in her Senior year. r . THE SENIOR FLICKER 31 Teacher: Your memory is remarkable; there are a few more facts, but time will not allow us to include them. I may add that Clifton Christen- son and Harriett Ingalls won Sawyer Medals in their Sophomore year. Did your Dad tell you much about his Junior year? Pupil: Oh yes, Frances Morong won the Roosevelt Trophy with a wonderful prize essay. Incidentally she won it again in her Senior year, and thus the class had the trophy for two years. Howard Curtis and Natalie Moulton, being really clever with pen, brush, and charcoal, drew many instructive cartoons for the Beacon. Curtis in his Senior year gave some fine chalk-talks and Natalie Moulton created interesting covers for the Beacon in her Junior year. Gee, my Dad used to tell me a lot about the Operetta. I wonder if I can give the name§ of the leading stars? Er — there was Ford Martin, he was a melancholy sailor-lad quite madly in love, — but vainly so. Then there was Donald Phillips — he was a shepherd — and danced gracefully, even though a bit heavily, across the stage; and Frances Morong the Captain’s daughter, — and quite above Martin’s affections. And then there was a fellow with long curls — er — er — I guess that’s all I remember. Teacher: That was Frank Jenney. But didn’t your Dad tell you about Charles Pew — as Deadeye Dick — Pew was a new comer that year ; he entered from Exeter. And then, Eugene Publicover as the Mikado of Japan, and Lelia Silveira as Mabel, and Priscilla Moore as Peep-Bo, who chattered away in company with two other Japanese maids? Pupil: It all comes back to me now. Dad said that the Class of ’24 were always striving to achieve something worth while. They organized in their Junior year, and influenced by the revolutions of that time, elected a girl, Evelyn Wilkins, as President. It was decided that the class rings or pins should be bought that year. Designs were submitted by several members of the class, but Magdalene Nunes had hers unanimously accepted. Thus a member of the class designed the rings, which were bought through a local dealer, showing the remarkable good sense of the class in patronizing Glouces- ter merchants. A committee was also appointed to choose a class motto. “Facta non verba” was finally selected. In their Junior year a get-together social was held in the girls’ gym. Teacher: Very good; I thought I would find you all woefully lacking in these important matters, but it seems your Dad instructed you well. Is there anything else you recall as happening in the Junior year? Pupil: Oh yes, Mary Steele and Donald Phillips went away to school, — but not to the same one. Gilbert Viator and Dorothy Tucker received Sawyer Medals in their Junior year. Teacher: We must hurry; you forgot that at the end of her Junior year Evelyn Wilkins left school to enter the matrimonial ranks, — and that Harriett Fall became President. What about the Senior year? Pupil: Well, the Senior year started with a bang, with Harriett Fall as President, Frank Jenney, Vice-President, Gilbert Viator as Secretary, and Paul Polisson as Treasurer. A committee was appointed to arrange a Senior-Freshman Social. The class of ’24 took a new step in giving a Freshman class a reception. The committee worked hard and it was a howl- ing success. In fact, Dad said one could scarce hear himself talk. Also, that year, Mr. Ringer worked out a plan, whereby, every Monday and Friday morning there was a half an hour devoted to home room activities. During this period topics of both local and universal interest were discussed. Through 32 THE SENIOR FLICKER this, pupils were brought in contact with important material, that perhaps ordinarily would not have reached them. This also helped to bring about the remarkable Christmas atmosphere which prevailed that year. In every Senior home room and in many others, a Christmas tree blossomed forth in many colored bits of decorations, and caused a contagious smile to spread from face to face. Even Santa Claus was there, and the pupils dropped back into the lower grades — and were happy. Officers were elected for a Debating Club, but because of the lack of time, the club was not fully organized that year. A splendid Literary Club was organized and met with undeniable success. It had a membership of about fifty. The Battalion worked faith- fully and students who had shown themselves worthy became Cadet Officers and instructed the underclassmen so that they might carry on the glory of Gloucester High School. Harry Magnuson received highest honors for the four years, Priscilla Davis next highest, and Francis Jenney next. Teacher: I did not tell you that I was a member of the Class of 1924, that I often think of those four short years. I can recall how we entered, young, hopeful, energetic, and wide-eyed — and, how we left young, more hopeful, more energetic, and with eyes expressing nothing of wonderment, but with a touch of joy, — and with a touch of sadness. The time is up — let us go. (Curtain) H. Eugene Publicover, ’24 Elizabeth Rowe, ’24 THE SENIOR FLICKER 33 GLOUCESTER R. O. T. C.

LIGHT _ POWER — HEAT GLOUCESTER ROCKPORT ESSEX THE SENIOR FLICKER 57 CLASS POEM The Ship with every sun-kissed sail Is now departing from the shore, And though it prosper or it fail, Here’s luck to Nineteen-Twenty-Four! Brave Youth stands smiling at the helm; Give heed! O Youth! to lurking shoal, Lest tempest wave shall overwhelm And sink thee e’re thou reach thy goal. It stands not far, the goal we seek, Or ’chance, it stands long leagues away, And though thy soul be great or weak, Tend but the journey of today. Our yesterday has now sped past E’en as the flotsaiyi on the tide ; Today is speeding, speeding fast; No morrow may perchance abide. So shape thy course with compass true, Nor care what hindering winds may blow, The old sail’s tattered, bend the new, And ever forward, onward go. In harbor calm, with lowered sail Spend not thine idle hour in lust ; No mariner shall ever fail If true and steadfast to his trust. Though storms delay or winds becalm, ’Twill not be thus as hours flee, To all hurts, Nature brings its balm; This be thy boast: My Soul is free. And when the sunset throws its beam To light the hour when journey ends, Look back! thou’lt see where youth’s bright stream, With Life’s eternal ocean blends. Then furl the sail ; the twilight fails ; Perchance for us the journey’s o’er. Though it did prosper or did fail, God speed to Nineteen-Twenty-Four!

It is the key that will open many doors to further scholastic training. It is the tool many will use in securing positions. Tonight the children of four years ago are graduating from your Gloucester High School. Have not the last four years wrought marvelous changes in us? We have grown from childhood to manhood and woman- hood. We have profited and broadened from the versatile study offered. We have delved into the past that we may understand the present. We have studied the peoples of foreign lands and learned that people the world over are much more alike than they are different. We have “tasted, swallowed, and digested” works of great authors. We have admired the examples of valor and honor among our great men in history. They have shown us the reward of living honestly and persevering diligently. Through science, we have at last conceived the wonder of spanning wide rivers, erecting huge buildings, and digging great tunnels. Through the study of Expression we have come to admire and strive for the art of the Spoken Word. Through Music Appreciation we are enabled to enjoy and interpret good music. Through participating in the school athletics we have learned lessons of true sportsmanship and felt the satisfaction of a square deal. But we have not profited from studies alone. Out of a mass of young people we have chosen those in whom we found interest, in whom there existed a compatibility with our tastes, and in whom we discerned admirable qualities. Long after the text books are forgotten and the notebooks are burned, the friendships of our youth will be retained and treasured. In fact, we have found high school a kaleidoscope through which we have seen the world and its people. As years sped by and graduation ap- proached, we gazed with keener interest, for we realized that soon we were to chose a path of stern endeavor and join the motley crowd. To us graduation means another rung on the ladder of life, on which we do not want to rest, but rather to go on climbing — ever eager in the work of realizing our ambition, ever hopeful for the future which gleams ahead of us — glorious — bright — mysterious. Are we looking through a mist of dreams? Perhaps so, but we are going to work for their realization. We are not afraid of Work — we have become well acquainted with him during the last four years. He is not an attractive picture, he is just Old Man Work and has no time to put on starchy shirts and folderols. If we go with him, he will take us to his home where we will meet Content. He is not hard to find and when we come to know him well, he will introduce us to his neighbors — the family of Op- portunities. May we all meet them!

M iss Harris: How did she enjoy her vacation? A green little “Fresh” in a green little way Some chemicals mixed just for fun one day; Now the green little grasses tenderly wave O’er the green little Freshman’s green little grave. Frenchie (scornfully) : I despise you from the bottom of my heart. Lester (cheerfully) : Ah, well! I’ve always been told that there is plenty of room at the top. Elliott: The boss offered me an interest in the firm today. Lib: He did! Elliott: Yes, he said that if I didn’t take an interest in it pretty soon, he’d fire me. Myrt : What do you think of mud as a beautifier? Abbott: Well, it hasn’t done much for the turtle. Lester : I had a night-mare last night. Charlie: Yes, I saw you with her. Flavored Osculation Lip rouges are her hobby, She has the latest kind, And some are quite delightful And others not, I find. It’s easy to discover If she’s within your reach Her lip-sticks then are flavored Most delicately — peach. But it’s also quite apparent, When your luck has fallen through, So look out, old man, she doesn’t choose A lemon one for you. My Bonnie My Bonnie leaned over the gas tank The height of the co ntents to see; She lighted a match to assist her — Oh bring back my Bonnie to me. Barber: You look talented. Doris : That’s why I want my hair cut. Beautiful but Dumb “Did you mail those two letters I gave you, Nora?” “Yes’m, at the post office; but I noticed that you’d put the two-cent stamp on the foreign letter and the five-cent on the city letter.” “Oh, dear, what a blunder!” “But I fixed it all right, ma’am. I just changed the address on the envelopes.” Marion : Lester was an awful dumb-bell when he was young. Frenchy: How’s that? Marion : They had to burn the school down to get him out of the first grade. “All at Sea” Cliff Terry: Is the “Red Boat” in? Librarian: No, I don’t believe we have that book. Cliff Terry: Oh, pardon me, I mean the “Scarlet Launch.” Librarian (after searching dili- gently) : No book with that title is listed in the catalogue. Cliff: But I’m sure you must have it. Suddenly, searching in his inside pocket he produced a slip of paper on which something was written ; then blushing, he said, “It’s The Ruby Yacht, by a man named Omar, that I want.” Teacher: Ralph, give me a sen- tence with the word pencil in it. Ralph Handran: I have to wear a belt or my “pents’ll” fall down. 62 THE SENIOR FLICKER Compliments of DR. PHILIP P. MOORE Compliments of DR. PHILLIP WILLIAM ROWLEY Compliments of DR. H. E.

The three most important tenses in Latin are “Gettit,” “Gessit,” and “Missit.” Flivver: Do you think Prof, meant anything by it? Elizabeth : By what ? Flivver : He advertised a lecture on “Fools.” I bought a ticket and it said, “Admit One.” Customer: I would like to see a few instruments: a harp, a guitar and a lyre. L. Smith : I can show you the harp and a guitar, but the boss is out. J. Day: Why are the muscles in my head smaller than those in my arm ? Teacher: Because you don’t use them so often. Mother’s in the kitchen Washing out the bottles ; Sister’s in the pantry Washing off the labels; Father’s in the cellar Mixing up the hops; Johnny’s on the front porch ; Watching for the cops.

If gab were music, Room A. H. would be a Symphony Orchestra. A mermaid is a lady with a tail. The pastor retired from the. service and settled down on a farm, where he raised pastorized milk. Some of the West India Islands are subject to torpedoes. Valley Forge is the place where the Village Blacksmith worked. The Four Horsemen worked in a livery stable. Gender shows whether a man is masculine, feminine or neuter. Queen Elizabeth was tall and thin but she was a stout Protestant. He was optimistic in a pessimistic way. Teacher: Are you laughing at me?

The following notice was recently posted in a small town by the up-to- date marshall. “I have been instructed to enforce the ordinance against chickens run- ning at large and riding bicycles on the sidewalk.” Como: Say, jeweler, my watch doesn’t keep good time. Jeweler: The hands won’t behave, sir. There’s a pretty girl in the case. Mr. Parsons: The Latin word ‘carus’ has two meanings: dear — be- loved, and dear — expensive. The two have a very close meaning. Father: I greatly disapprove of that young fellow that just went. One particular reason is the lack of in- dustry in his callings. Lib Colby: His callings? Why he calls seven evenings in the week. In Roman history Miss Austin, to test the powers of observation, in- serted a picture of the Rockport Li- brary in a collection of pictures of Rome.

Mere Pronounciation Miss Crawley (reading from no- tices) : Co A’s prize scrod will drill at the close of school. My brother puts his watch under his pillow every night. Yes, I noticed he liked to sleep overtime. “Do you love me?” pleaded the young man. “I — I don’t know,” was the answer. Gently he insinuated his arm around her, “Darling, would you like me to ask your mother first?” With a sudden cry of terror, she grasped his arm, and shrieked con- vulsively, “No, no, no! She’s a widow! I want you myself!” For Sale : A fine bulldog. Will eat anything, especially fond of children. Wante d: A boy to drive a Ford of genial disposition, over 16 yrs. old. Circus Manager: If you want a job with us, what steps would you take if a lion escaped? Boy: Good long ones, sir; Wanted: 3 ladies to sew buttons on third floor. Reformer: It must be terrible to have to spend your days in a place like this. Convict: It sure is. We have vis- itors like you almost everyday. “George Washington,” read the small boy from his history, “was born Feb. 22, 1732 A. D.” “What does A. D. stand for?” in- quired the teacher. The small boy pondered : “I don’t exactly know,” he hesitated, “After dark, I guess.” Erskine: What’s the difference be- tween an upper and a lower berth ? F. Martin: A difference of fifty cents. The lower is higher than the upper. The higher price is for the lower. If you want it lower, you’ll have to go higher. We see the upper lower than the lower. In other words, the higher the lower. Most people don’t like the upper, although it is lower on account of its being upper. When you occupy an upper, you have to get up to go to bed, and get down when you get up. You can have the lower if you pay higher. If you are willing to go lo yer, it will be higher. A young man returning home from the continent on board a crowded steamer, was asked to give up his berth to a little girl. The next day his wife received a telegram from Dover which said, “Expect me home immediately, dreadful voyage, awful sick; gave birth to a little girl on leaving Calais. Ladie’s Furs: Made from your own skin. “Are you a messenger boy?” asked the near sighted man of a boy in the street. “No, sir,” was the indignant re- ply, “it’s my sore toe that makes me walk so slowly.” A flivver had broken down on the road. Its irate owner approached an onlooker on the sidewalk and said : “Hey, you! Do you know anything about this car?” The onlooker replied : “Only a lot of bum jokes.” Father (reading letter from son at college) : Percival says he has a beau- tiful lamp from boxing. Mother : Oh, I knew the dear would win something in athletics. Teacher: Can you define hypocrite? Student: One who comes to school with a smile on his face. 72 THE SENIOR FLICKER AUNT JULIA’S ROCKING CHAIR “You’ll Never See Anything But the Eack Yard” “If you spend all your time looking out the kitchen window,” says Aunt Julia, “you’ll never see anything but the back yard. “And some women seem to me to have back-yard minds. Their chief interests in life are the price of potatoes, the cellar window that needs to be fixed, and what time the Metzger girl came home Tuesday night and who she went out with. “They ought to take enough time off their housework to see how the world looks from the front porch or the parlor.” Using the laundry is one way women can find time to take a “front porch” look.

Names of paid employees of main library: “There ain’t no such ani- mals.’’ Number of volumes added during the last year: None. We cleared out some of the trash already there in- stead. In what year was the library made free to the scholars: 0000 A. D. What is the total amount of your permanent endowment fund? We’re still waiting for it. We don’t know. Teacher: Give a sentence using the word egotism, which means vanity. Girl : The girl dropped her egotism case. She: Is it dangerous to drive with one hand? He: You bet! More than one fel- low has run into the church doing it. Fish in the ocean Fish in the sea, Hair waves and hair nets Make a fish out of me. In German — Miss Parsons: Give that sentence, Pine. Pine: Er — ah — oh, I can’t. Miss Parsons: What is there that is so hard pine? We are told that Thad Call asked his father if the hens kept by an in- sane asylum lay cracked eggs.

(To the tune of “Till We’ Meet Again”) There’s a time in each life made for parting, A time marked with sorrows and strife; And today though ve part, We go with brave hearts, Out upon the grim pathways of life. ’Till the last scene in life has been painted, And gone is all sorrow and care ; We will live day by day, Though far we may stray, As you taught us to, upright and square. Chorus Dear old school, we bid farewell to thee, Long you’ll linger in our memory; When we’ve started on Life’s " way, Thoughts of thee will ever stay, so, Dear old school, we sing this song to you, And our teachers, pals so good and true; How happy were the days we knew, Dear old Gloucester High. FAREWELL I Resolve: To do everything that comes to my hand as though it were a test job for my promotion. Never to postpone or to put off doing a disagreeable task which must be done, and the doing of which will be good for me. That I am not going to be a trailer, a follower, a leaner, or an echo of other people’s opinions and beliefs. That whatever people may say about my ability, about my success in life, they must say that I am a real man. That I will not plan to get ninety per cent of my happiness out of tomorrow while taking only one per cent out of today. I will fling my whole life into the present moment and get a hundred per cent out of the day I am living in. That I will let go of things that are not worthwhile, and at any sacrifice do those that will count most in making my life one of real service to the world. —Ex. 76 THE SENIOR FLICKER Compliments of GLOUCESTER COAL COMPANY Compliments of DR. WM. T. HARTY This store is always glad to show you the latest styles at the lowest prices BROAD’S SHOE STORE 136 MAIN STREET Saunder ' s Ice Cream THE SENIOR FLICKER 77 PRESENTATION (With Apologies to “Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast”) Did you hear how Captain Martin And the fickle Francis Jenney Took the “cake” at our school party? How “Count” Connors, well-known major He the vainest of all “apples” Told his “yarns” to Phyllis Lycett? How the butterfly, “Let” Dunbar, The sincerest (?) of all lovers, Told his tales of love and longing? That the ball might be more joyous, That the time might pass more gaily And the girls be more contented? Sumptuous was the Presentation Given at the well-known Armory. All the girls were dressed in satins Made or bought by gen’rous parents. All the boys were clad in khaki Pressed and cleansed by Gloucester tailors. Boys had sold thru all the city Tickets for the coming party To be held in May on Friday, The battery acting as our host. So the dancers then assembled With their young guests from New Bedford Clad in all their richest raiment Splendid with their well-shined puttees. And the snappy boys from Wakefield With the girls of Gloucester High School Gorgeous with their paint and powder Watched the drill with admiration. Then they danced the peppy fox-trot Next the waltz and snappy one-step Jazzed a bit by McErne. But our Captain Leland Corliss And his baby from the grade school Heeded not the other dancers — Seemed contented with each other As did handsome Publicover And the artist Mickey Moulton. Soon on Saunder’s cream they feasted — Strawb’ry, chocolate, and vanilla, Served with one delicious cookie. Then with intermission over The players tuned their instruments — Dancing was again in order Thus the happy minutes sped on ’Till the party closed at midnight. — Frenchie, ’24 78 THE SENIOR FLICKER REYNOLDS LEARY SPECIALTY SHOP Feat uring The Betty Wales Frocks — Golflex Sport Clothes — 120 MAIN STREET UP ONE FLIGHT Telephone 1104R GRUEN Bracelet and Pocket WATCHES Faithful in timekeeping service and as beautiful as they are accurate $25.00 up Other makes from $15.00 to $75.00 F.
