Erskine VICE PRESIDENT - John Fletcher Wonson SECRETARY - Martha Day Burnham TREASURER _ Clifford Amero 12 THE SENIOR FLICKER THEN— THE BEGINNING m OOKINGr forward, our faces aglow with interest, our hearts beat- ing high with excitement, and our minds eager to grasp the true worth and meaning of the new school life before us, we came four years ago to Gloucester High School. Timidity that knew no faltering, and pride that knew no hauteur, held us in their ways. We looked continually to the future, with scarcely a regret for what lay behind. We felt secure in the expectation that the high school course offered something that would prove to be definite value in our lives. • AN ACKNOWLEDGMENT T has been said that " nothing of true worth was ever accom- plished without enthusiasm, ’ ’ and we can heartily agree to this statement. As the staff members of our year book, we must real- ize that enthusiasm is most necessary, but of comparatively little help unless we have a spirit of cooperation from the many sources vital to the life of our magazine. The spirit if cooperation we have met with is very gratifying. Lest our colleagues think we fail to appreciate their interest, we take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Marion Wood- ruff, who has taken full charge of the office management; Mr. Henry Russell, who has had supervision of the advertising; Miss Mabel Spof- ford, whose interest and direction of the art work has been of im- measurable assistance; and Thad Call, a Junior, who has taken com- plete charge of the cartoons. WHAT ARE WE GOING TO GET OUT OF LIFE? jpj S we linger upon the threshold of actual life with the school and gggg its educational advantages swinging behind us, the question nat- urally arises in our minds, What are we going to get out of life? There is but one answer. We are going to get out of life exactly what we put into life. It rests with us. Everything has its price. We will not gain one advancement with- out some time being called upon to pay for eveiy ounce of its value. As Lowell says: " For the love of gain our lives are sold; Each ounce of dross costs its ounce of gold.” We must decide OURSELVES what we most earnestly desire to accomplish in life, and, having set our hands to the plow, work up- ward and onward to that end. Every man is the captain of his own soul and the ruler of his own destiny. Thus are our lives to be what we make them. Thus do we see the justice of the Golden Rule, " What- soever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even unto them. ’ ’ This is the great law of life. By it we must live if we are to reap life’s richest benefits. Milford Wilkin THE SENIOR FLICKER 13 CLASS ROLL Name — Thomas John Abraham- son. Address — 17 Bass Avenue.

This was one of the largest classes that ever came into the Gloucester High school, and its influence was very highly felt there. The other classes thought the freshmen were not important, but they soon found out otherwise. The Freshmen engaged in many activities; such as, The Roosevelt Trophy Contest, in which their entries, Ruth Kennedy and Robina Airth won much praise. Another of their great achievements was the freshman play that was presented before the entire school. Those that took part were: Ruth Kennedy, Marjorie Cole, Romaine Olson, Percy Story, Sidney Feener, and William Greenleaf. A short intro- duction was given by way of a dance by Margery Goslin and a read- ing by Robina Airth. Archie Gordon had charge of the entire program, and this play was considered much better than the junior or senior plays. The freshmen were well represented on the Beacon Staff, Home Beautiful, and Home Economic Clubs. They were also well represented on the Honor Roll which tends to show that this was the smartest class that ever over-ran Gloucester High. On account of engaging in these many activities they soon dispelled the idea of su- periority of the upper classmen. These freshmen were feared by the other classes because of their large men, Doucette and Naves who were very fierce and brutal. Under the leadership of these two men they became very powerful and were highly respected by the rest of the classes. Many great men of to-day came from this class such as “Dickie” Bell, the great clown, Dr. Crawley, the famous surgeon, Earl Casey, pitcher for the Gloucester dirty sox, Robert Frazier, who played way back on the G. H. S. football team, Bobl Gaffney, third baseman on the New York Yankees, Whitney Davis, the great mayor of Foolsburg, and Jack Cahill, a great professor in Dutch. This great class became separated four years later and as Coolidge said, “A won- derful class that is gone but will never be forgotten.” Margaret MacDonald Archie Gordon. 38 THE SENIOR FLICKER HISTORY OF THE SOPHOMORE CLASS It was on May 31, 1999 that the great event happened. It hap- pened out of a perfectly clear sky, also, which made it twice as tragic, for who, of all the spectators would ever have suspected that the revere, unoccupied, quaint, old Gloucester High School would burn down! Yet, burn down it did and with such a great blaze that the windows in every house of the two million inhabitants of the great metropolis of Gloucester reflected its brilliant flame. How the fire had been caused, no one knew ; but the result was only too plain. Nothing remained but the miniature basement, a place where, it was rumored, lunches had been served at one remote time. ‘ ‘ Imagine ! ’ ’ cried chic, little Carolyn — to her friend Ellen-Theresa — as she adjusted the wings of her little flying chair before stepping in — “My grandmother, old Virginia Pettingill — tells me that they used to stand in line and buy, what they called lunch tickets, and then stand in line and wait for a chance to be waited on! She insists that those were the “good old days” but — for my part — me for the little old automatic sandwich producer. “Me too,” echoed her companion as she opened a package of Notachew and offered Carolyn a bite, and then after a moment, “Say! Carolyn, let’s fly over to the high school and see if they’ve found any- thing new.” On their way through the air, they noticed that the traffic was unusually thick, and as a friend of Carolyn’s flew by, she called out, “Say, Jim! What’s all the excitement?” “They’ve turned up the comer stone at the high school,” was the reply, and young Jim Greely sped away. When the two girls arrived, they found a great many other people there before them, but after questioning the balloon suspended police- man as to the whereabouts of a convenient parking place, they settled comfortably down. Suddenly a silence fell upon the huge multitude of onlookers. With the help of a few strong men, an old man ascended the rude, temporary platform. “Who-zat?” questioned Ellen-Theresa. “Sssssh” said Carolyn, “That’s Jim Greely ’s grandfather. His name is James, too. Shh! They’re beginning to talk!” One of the younger men, Thelton Gillis by name, began to speak. “Friends, we have, as you know just made a remarkable discovery. Beneath the corner stone of this well-known school we have found among several minor records, a history of the most brilliant class which THE SENIOR FLICKER 39 ever entered within its walls ! As a sponser of this great event, we have choosen — Mr. Greely — famous orator and statesman. Amid the profussion of generous applanse that followed, the old man took his stand. “Friends,” he began, in the deep voice so well known to those whom he addressed, “I am about to perform the duty that appeals to me more than anything else I have done for a long, long time. I am about to read the history of the most brilliant — most active class that ever enlivened this high school. Friends ! It was the Sophomore Class of 1926!” Here the old man’s voice broke and, to conceal his confusion, he unrolled the scroll which he held in his hand. Regaining his composure he began to read aloud — “In September, 1924, a new class entered the walls of Gloucester High. Naturally this event created no sensation as every year a new class had entered at this time. But, seeing themselves treated so in- differently did not agree with this ambitious freshman class, and so they began to try to think of a way by which they might attract the attention of the upper classmen. Their originality was almost com- pletely exhausted, however, when suddenly as if in answer to their prayers, something happened! “There AVas among the grammar school infants, a certain element who were discontented at the thoughts of remaining a whole year longer in this ‘kindergarten’ but who Avished, rather, to go to high school ! “Now almost all of these youngsters were accustomed to having their oAvn Avay, and so they worried and bothered and fretted their teachers to such an extent that at last they Avere promised, half sar- castically, that they might go, and if they made good, they might say. “Great excitement folloAved. Ncav hair ribbons and vanity cases Avere procured. At first perambulators Avere considered, but the moth- ers decided that the expense Avas already quite great enough. “And so the ‘Skippers’, as they Avere called, were launched upon their A r ay. The offended grammar school associates of these ambitious creatures scoffed at the A diole idea and expected them to soon be glad enough to return after discovering they could not make good; but, much to their surprise and dismay, the ‘Skippers’ not only made good, but made remarkable progress. “Meanwhile the freshman class attracted the attention of not only teachers but upper classmen as well, and soon the gentle fair sex found they would have to step lively to hold their ground after Marjory Minard had stepped up and carelessly glanced around at a few of the masculine gender, or Dot Jodrey had executed a bewitch- ing Spanish dance at a local entertainment! “The freshman play that year, starring Berenice Wonson sup- ported by Benny Kerr, Dap Pendleton, and Jim Greely, Avas consid- ered the best play given by a freshman class in years and years.. And, — speaking of drama, what Avould have given Miss Austin the inspira- tion of having a Latin play, except that her freshmen seemed — ‘most promising’. “As for their success in the student Avorld, so many names of 40 THE SENIOR FLICKER freshmen, during that year, were sent to the High School Notes, Glou- cester Daily Himes, wherein the names of honor pupils were printed, that it was rumored that they were obliged to add a new column.” “As for the Skippers, they soon learned to discard their hair rib- bons and doils, and before long they had grown both mentally and physically to such an extent that they were almost indistingui shable from the freshmen. But Captain Knapp of their schooner, the Room IV, preserved their memory with a snapshot which was taken on the last day of school.” “The next year, one more class flew away and one more new class entered, but still the remaining classes gazed amusedly upon the now full fleged sophomores to see what new conquests and what new glories they would attain.” “Soon, the more popular members of the class became literally, trade foi the ‘Beacon’, the school paper, for the .jokes that did not contain some sophomores’ name were few and far between, while sev- eral writing geniuses were discovered such as Barbara Fellows, Arthur Call, Stella Nickerson, Mildred Ingalls, James Greely, Beth Ringer, Virginia Hill, and Betty Foster.” “Home Room activity periods, I fear, would have long since de- veloped into mere study periods had it not been for this industrious delegation for it would have been a hard job to find a room during this period of time wherein either Mildred Ingalls was not reading, Virginia Pettingill was not singing, the much-used and abused ukelele club Avas not strumming, or Berenice Wonson Avas not speaking.” “As for Drama during the sophomore year — a club period being refused this class, they gave plays of their OAvn during home room ac- tivities. ‘Tickets Please’ given in Miss Woodbury’s home room was so successful that it was reproduced the following Friday in Miss Austin’s room, and even if one of the girls did come doAvn with the grip, Bingo Wonson read and interpreted the part so well that all went off Avithout a flaw. “ ‘A Pan of Fudge’ — another comedy , given by the girls in Miss Placido’s Home Room immediately became another dramatic suc- cess. ’ ’ “Then of course, there Avere the extracts from Julius Caesar given in the English classes, but Ave Avill not go into detail on these for fear you Avill draw the conclusion that Ave are conceited, while in reality Ave are merely proud of our class.” “And so the sophomore class filled its year of existence with events so comical, so sad, so sweet, so pathetic, so earnest, so eager that their memories Avill cA r er predominate evry participants’ soul.” Old Mr. GreCjly finished and as he did so, a sob choked in his throat. “My friends,” he said, “this Avas my class! I hope you will pardon me for this sudden burst of sentiment, but I have been carried back many-many-years. Another old man mounted the platform “C’mon major,” he said, “you must get home early and to bed, for tomorroAv, as you must re- member, Ave are planning to have our new monkey glands installed.” THE SENIOR FLICKER 41 “Why so ’tis Pendleton, old boy! If that doctor’s theory is true; tomorrow we’ll be as young as if we had a fountain of youth to drink from.” “And perhaps as chipper as I was when I was king of Latin land in that play that the history told about — when I was king and wigg- led my head so much that the crown wouldn’t stay on-ho-ho!” “Ha! ha! yes, and do you remember how you said Mississ Mar- tha Burnham and how the school roared!” 1 1 Those were the days, Greeley, and that was some class ! ho ! ho ! ho!” and the two old cronies adjusted themselves in Pendleton’s cushioned limousine and flew away. Another year has come and gone And there will be still more But if we’ve truly set our sails We’ll safely reach the shore. Betty Foster ’28 42 THE SENIOR FLICKER WtflOftf HISTORY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS All journeys have a destination. Yea, at last I am nearing- the Straits of Gibraltar, and the ponderous ocean liner rocks and sways on the furious waves. I fancy that I see the distant port of Venice. There gossamer leaves sprinkle the heavy ripening fruit with dancing shadows; gray orchards are animated by the .varicolored sashes and caps of the peasants’ costume. In fanciful dream, as I stand upon deck, my eyes seem almost involuntarily to gaze upon the ever chang- ing ocean-tide. A fleecy cloud envelopes my mind. Oh ! how life does transform itself. Just as the ocean liner approaches her lon- sought-for port, so do I draw near to my Senior Year Harbor. It seems as if only yesterday Mildred Shute was a mere child of Elliott Anderson and Alice Whittemore at our freshman club pro- gram. Almost unbearable, it seems ,to think that after a prolonged time of seasick roaming there in the rosy golden sunset beneath a Venetian moon lies the land of my dreams. Life, to me, is always gay and beautiful and ever with ardent fervor do I look upon my days at Gloucester High. There I have been a member of a great and noble class and now: Listen my friends and you shall hear Of this wonderful class of dauntless fear, Twas the eighteenth of September in twenty-three Yea, all who are now alive Will remember that famous day and year We entered to further school spirit, By force or will to make wrong right And to serve dear old Gloucester High With all of our will and all of our might. Every school year has been a memorable and well accomplished one. Yea. all can truthfully say we accomplished our work nobly, for even as freshmen we kept even pace with the upper classes. Our “pep” and school pride we displayed by supporting ath- letics, Service Club, and “Beacon” Staff. First year Thad Call, Steele, Margie Robinson, and Elinor Parsons were staff supporters. The Roosevelt Trophy contest had as our representatives two fine contestants, Alice Whittemore and Helen Handran. These girls cer- tainly made a brilliant showing for their class mates and when a soph- omore Helen received the trophy. In scholarship Doyle and Margaret Lane led, while in military drill Owen Steele bore the honors. This year closes with a crash and we, as a class, find ourselves THE SENIOR FLICKER 43 heaped with innumerable honors and ready with anticipation to begin anew another year of fame. September again found us energetic, for had we not passed through our childhood stage? Our boys were enthusiastic leaders in baseball, and the team boasted of Smith, Doyle, Ashline, and Callahan. Both Madruga and Helen Handran presented their topics in splendid form during Good English week and were worth-while del- egates for the class. At the Prize Speaking Contest Shirlie Wilkins and Parker Young spoke in behalf of ofur class. I am sure we could not have found two more clever speakers. Dot Murphy was awarded ten dollars in merchandise purchasing for an essay on “Advantages of Trading in Gloucester. ’ ’ Lovell Tarr and Annie Nelson marched up on to the stage at graduation and there before the eyes of many spectators walked off with the Sawyer Medals in their hands. The “Beacon” Staff reporters were: L. Tarr, Phil Doyle, “Mar- gie” Robinson, Elinor Parsons, and A. Burns. Call and Aho were our cartoonists. Now this year closed with a bang, for next day in English class- room we took the life of Eugene Field. This year we find ourselves juniors. Is that not a title of dis- tinction? Of course! Now, without embarassment, we can associate ourselves with seniors, for we are upper classmen. Naturally, being people of such a highly responsible position as this we felt obliged to have some method of protection and so as class officers we elected: Owen Steele, president; Anthony Madruga, vice- president; Grace Burnham, secretary; Phil Doyle, treasurer; and as an executive board, Wilfred Brown, Harry Christenson, and Bernard Pratt. With such a superior group of officers was accomplished a year of 1 great success — one that will remain forever steadfast in my mind. Our honor at the Roosevelt Trophy Contest was defended by Mad- ruga and “Peggy” Delaney. “Peggy” Delaney told a bit of news, “men come here to drink the beauty of Gloucester.” (What ' s your idea of beauty, Peg?) Under the supervision of Miss Green, our Thanksgiving play was a marvelous success. Alice Fall and Ed. Smith were just the cutest little children you ever saw. In fact, I think they are actually still chasing the molasses barrell down the hill. Lawson immediately de- cided after his successful deliverance of the blessing to enter the pro- fession of ministry. This year the juniors according to due respect (and occasion- ally ability) were given higher positions on the “Beacon” Staff. We still have Call and Aho enlivening the magazine with cartoons. “Dot” Vivian, our literary editor, increased enthusiasm in the “Beacon” by furnishing continued stories of a professional style. Mid Shute be- came assistant literary editor, and we shall always remember her odes to a mouse. Assi stant exchange-editor was cared for by “Lib” Rogers and assistant editor-in-chief, Annah Burns. Our joke collec- 44 THE SENIOR FLICKER tors were “Margie” Robinson, Madruga, Ed. Smith, and Elinor Par- sons. Now let us turn our attention to girls’ sports, but before we do this, let me announce a great feature of this year — Edward Parsons ran up the curtains for Miss Clough. Girls of the basketball team were: Capt. G. Burnham; Eddie Hyams, Thelma Stickney, Margaret Whit- marsh, Helen Pothier, “Pat” Greenleaf, Gracie Hammond, “Lib” Rogers, Winnie Morrissey, Ellen Wilkinson, and Dot White. Many of our girls also entered the rifle team contest under the instruction of Col. Hathaway. At Presentation “Lib” Colby’s orange evening gown harmonized quite well with the major’s uniform. Owen Steele’s squad gained highest honor, and it was rumored Steele’s chest expansion became too great for his uniform (of course the catastrophe need not be men- tioned) nevertheless, the squads of Our boys all did well and made a splendid showing for themselves. Tis true, that only one can ever win the race. A rumor spread about school that Isadore Kline was responsible for having set Miss Clough on the verge of nervous prostration. (’T was only a rumor, though next day Kline had his home work assign- ment prepared). For the benefit of those pupils interested in public speaking a prize contest was held at City Hall. Marguerite Tucker gave a very interesting reading of “The Highwayman”, by Alfred Noyes and Shir lie Wilkins presented her topic “Dicky and the Dancing School” in a very clever manner. A number of our boys made the football team and if it had not t een for the support of: “Bob” Ashline, “Bak;er” Silva, “Honey” Curley, Phil Doyle, “Dingles” Christensen, Owen Steele, and “Skip- per” Morrissey we would not have been the high school victory team. Harry Christenson was elected captain of next year’s team. Many of the boys are out to support baseball now, and with their support a prosperous year may be predicted. Sampson has given a very logical explanation of the saying, “Birds of a feather flock together.” Carl says, “Geese always fly with geese; you never see a goose flying with a hen.” You need no longer wonder why a class with such logical, sound-minded people as Sampson for pupils, bears such honors. Ah ! no longer do I hear the roar of ocean waves. The last great breaker has swooped across the deck of my vessel. I have reached my destination, but alas, my feet stand upon a concrete foundation. Was it all a dream? Yea, just another day dream in Room 9. There as I stood twirling the great globe about I fancied myself sail- ing with twirling jesters through the Straits of Gibraltar. But, ah, ’tis partly true for I have reached the greatest port of all. I am enter- ing the great harbor of Senior Year. A. Burns ’27 THE SENIOR FLICKER 45 JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY (Again) It was in the year of our Lord, 1923, that we, as freshmen entered high school. The first evidence that we were noticed was when the seniors gave us a Hallow ’een party. The seniors stood on gym stools and gave us paternal advice. We made our first professional appearance in a Thanksgiving play presented at assembly. The dramatis personae was as follows: Child ....... Mildred Shute Mother .. Alice Whittemore Father — Elliott Anderson Fairies Elizabeth Rogers, Doris Malonson, Helen Handhran. Moral: Don’t stop to kick at hash; wait for the next course. During good English week, interclass speaking was in order. Our representatives at this time were Alice Whittemore and Helen Handh- ran. Isadore Kline, Joseph Thomas, and Owen Steele managed to break into the ranks of the high school orchestra before the year was far advanced. At Presentation, the honors went to the prize squad of Company C which consisted of: Robert Callahan, Russell Spinney, Wilfred Brown, Owen Steele, Arthur Goodwin, Philip Doyle, Harry Christen- son, Frank Welch. As to basketball, Grace Burnham was elected captain of the fresh- man team. Grace also made the school team along with Margaret Whitmarsh and Margaret Martin. The Beacon Staff had some members of our class on it. These were Owen Steele, Marjorie Robinson, and Elinor Parsons. Our staff artists were Thad Call and Walter Aho. Philip Doyle and Margaret Lane won Sawyer medals for the year. In the annual gymnasium meet, the freshman class walked off with the cup. Our cup-bearer was Grace Burnham who ably carried out her new role. During the year Latin baseball was introduced by Miss Austin. At the end of the year, a game was played between sophomores and freshmen. The freshmen emerged from the conflict victors. At th beginning of our next school year, we returned as worldly- wise sophomores. As the weather was exceptionally good, we all felt great and were able to direct and not be directed. The class had a good send-off this year because before long the interclass speaking contest was held. Our representatives were An- thony Madraga and Helen Handrail. Helen was awarded the prize, and she truly deserved it. The class basketball team was again captained by Grace Burnham. The members of the team were as follows : Edwina Hyams, Margaret Whitmarsh, Evelyn Curtis, Alice Sandberg, E. Ryder, and Pauline 46 THE SENIOR FLICKER Brayman. During a series of interclass games, the sophomores won one game from the freshmen. Not to be outdone by the girls, some of the boys went out for baseball: Ed Smith, Phil Doyle, Bob Ashline, and Bob Callahan made the team. Ashline proved a very proficient pitcher. This year, a Prize Speaking Contest was held in City Hall. Shir- ley Wilkins and Parker Young represented our class. During the program, some of us got so excited we nearly ate our programs. For writing an essay on “ Advantages of trading in Gloucester, ’ ’ Dorothy Murphy was awarded a prize of ten dollars in merchandise by the Chamber of Commerce. Beacon staff members for the year were : Lovell Tarr, Phil Doyle, Marjorie Robinson, Elinor Parsons, and Annah Bums. Again, our artists were Walter Aho and Thad Call. This year, naturally, has outshone both of the preceding ones. Our first class meeting was held with the following officers, as chosen by the whole class, in charge : President Owen Steele Vice-President ....... — Anthony Madruga Secretary _ . .. . Grace Burnham Treasurer Phil Doyle The meeting was really a rip-roaring success. Class rings were chosen at a later meeting. Grace Burnham is destined for a great future. Thus far, she is Involved in everything of much importance. Now, to add to her hon- ors, she is secretary of the G. H. S. A. A. Those making the basketball team for the year were Grace Burn- ham, Evelyn Curtis, Margaret Whitmarsh, Alice Sandberg, and Ed- wina Hyams. At the first Prize Drill of the year which was held at the State Armory, Henry Lasley won the prize. Frank Welch received honor- able mention. Frank Welch wrote an essay on “ Chemistry in the Fish Industry” which he entered in the state contest on Chemistry. As reward for excellence, Frank will receive $20.00 in gold and a certificate, or in other words, the first state prize for the best essay on the Society’s given topic, “Chemistry in Industry.” His essay will be the Massa- chusetts entry for the national prizes. At Presentation this year, Sergeant Steele’s squad won the prizes. The Junior members of the squad were Bob Callahan, Harry Christen- son, Frank Welch, Elliott Anderson, and Richard Gosbee. Elizabeth Colby sponsored the battalion. The members of the Beacon staff for this year are greater in members than ever before from our class. Annah Burns, Doris Vivian, Elliott Anderson, Mildred Shute, Elizabeth Rogers, Marjorie Robin- son, Thaddeus Call, Walter Aho, Anthony Madruga, Edwar d Smith, and Elinor Parsons. Thus ends our present history. If Fate is as kind to us in the future as she has been in the past, we should be intensely grateful to “The Powers that Be”. M. S. — M. B. R. — V. H. V. THE SENIOR FLICKER 47 HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS When a group of us now successful men and women were gathered one evening in the library of the home of the renowned playwright, Milford Wilkin, former G. H. S, graduate, a discussion arose as to whether or not coherence is an entirely essential factor in writing. Eager to prove my point, I went to the book shelves to get an English Composition book. Picking up one at random, I found that the author was Harris. That name had a familiar ring and eager to find out what Harris it was, I turned to the front page. Overjoyed I called out to the others that I had found something to talk about that was a great deal more interesting than coherence. And so, while turning the pages of this revealing book, we retold those never-to-be-forgotten years when we were the Class of ’26 in good old G. H. S. ! FRESHMAN YEAR 1922—1923. In the fall of the year 1922 a dark cloud hovered over all the Gloucester High School. Few knew what this threatening cloud meant. Until — the cloud broke, and from it descended a horde of grammar school graduates, two hundred odd strong. From this mass has grown a formidable and imposing group, the present senior class. Its his- tory has been filled with pleasant and not so pleasant happenings. The freshman year showed that this class meant business both in scholarship a nd worthy conduct. This group took part in all school activities. It had a finger in every pie, as it were. As a member of this class and a member of the freshman year, I am well able to relate to those interested a short narrative of the freshman history. With what awe did we poor little, lovely little, and bleating little freshmen walk to our different classes. Still we frolicked along, en- joyed ourselves, until a teacher loomed in sight. Gone all the pleasure and joy. Some of our unit took History I, dear old ancient history. With those socialized recitations where the scholars take charge and the teacher sits in the back of the room reading “College Humor’ ’ (Bea- con) or writing on “The Duties of a Teacher.” No small wonder every one enjoyed that pleasant and easy subject. There were class football games. The representative team from the freshman class made a splendid showing, losing only one game. Norman Ross, Frank Souza, Allan Smith, Andrew Hanson, Horace 48 THE SENIOR FLICKER Erskine, Elliott Lane, and others who have left are deserving of splendid praise even now for their good work in these games. With what pleasure did we attend the club periods at City Hall °.ven if it did rain or snow or blow or the sun shine. We sat then in the balcony and looked forward or downward — to the time when we would be sitting on the floor. We favored the program with our crit- ical and appreciative attention, when our class members took part. F’rinstance Ernestine Veator and Fletcher Wonson were in the Thanksgiving Day program and Beatrice Madsen represented our class in the Roosevelt Trophy Contest. Then the Beacon came out. Athletic Dues were due, and lunch ticke t every day. Our purse became depleted. Did we lose courage — never! Instead we skimmed the pages of our school magazine rapidly in order to see whether or not our name was in print. We attended all the athletic games, cheered, and rooted. (I was going to say egged) on our teams. We ate voluptuously at the lunch counter. So, we, in a large sense of the word invested our money well. Fletcher Wonson, Evelyn Kane, and Helen Polisson helped to ad- vertise and boost our class in the Beacon. John Whynot, Norman Ross, Allan Smith, Russell Sargent, and Horace Erskine helped to spend our money on the gridiron, diamond, and track. As a grand finale to a prosperous and glorious year came the “Pre- sentation” club period. At this time we learned who was who our freshman year and who was going to be who our sophomore year. The Sawyer Medals were awarded to Beatrice Madsen and Horace Erskine. If I have left out anything that is important such as names and events, I entreat your humble pardon and I promise it will not happen the next time. There “ain’t” no next time. The best years of our life are gone. Still we have harvested a bountiful and plentiful crop of knowledge. Horace 0. Erskine. SOPHOMORE YEAR 1923—1924 Sophomores ! The Class of ’26 returned in the autumn with plenty of pep for the coming year. Under the supervision of Miss Austin, the sophomore Latin class, combined with the freshmen, formed a Latin club called the “Olym- pic Council.” The officers chosen were: Horace Erskine, Lempi Mar- tin. Fletcher Wonson, and Beatrice Madsen. At the interclass speaking contest for the Roosevelt trophy, the speakers from our class were Martha Burnham and Evelyn Kane. Although we did not cany off the trophy, we were well represented. Soon after the Roosevelt trophy contest, an amusing incident hap- pened in one of the boys’ homerooms. After the reading of the Bible, the teacher asked the class some questions on biblical knowledge. So far as he had gone, the boys had done pretty well (for boys), but when TOE SENIOR FLICKER 49 the home room teacher asked where the word “holy” first appeared in the Bible, the boys were “up a tree’ until Horace Erskine (wouldn’t you know it?) stood up and said, “On the coyer.” The school spirit of ’26 began to show itself to be the real stuff this year. With the good work that Erskine, Scammon, and Ross did on the football team, we could hold up our heads. Track had a good backing with our two representatives A. Smith and H. Erskine. But we were best represented in baseball where Daniels, Erskine, Pomeroy, Ross, Souza, and Wilkins did some fine work. Another amusing incident occurred later in the year in the English class when the English teacher asked Elliott Lane to fill in the words of the “Red Code” in order. Elliott being half asleep (where had he been the night before?) heard only the last word and, strange to relate, replied, “Hot doys and coffee for two.” We drew our own conclusions. Many of the girls who made the basketball team this year are still with it. These girls are Ellen McEachem, Grace Sonia, Catherine Meuse, and Edith Maddix. Also during the interclass games, the soph- omores won from the freshmen. Too soon came the end of the year with the awarding of Sawyer medals to Lempi Martin and Clifford Amero. And so endeth the sec- ond chapter. Agnes Hudder. JUNIOR YEAR 1924—1925 Thrice have the bells rung, and the once timid freshmen, then wise sophomores, and now sophisticated juniors return to- their little red schoolhouse filled with high hopes. They aim high. They want to be looked up to ; they are. Right at the beginning, Milford Wilkin, Samuel Taxis, and J. Fletcher Wonson showed their ability as writers of note by their arti- cles in the Beacon. In November, we chose our class officers, who did justice to the positions they held. Those elected were: President, Horace Erskine; Vice-President, Fletcher Wonson; Secretary, Martha Burnham; Treas- urer, Clifford Amero; and as an executive board, Erlton Pomeroy, Dorothy Minard, and Beatrice Madsen. At the Roosevelt Trophy Contest, Ralph Stapleton and Helen Polisson were our representatives. Although both speeches were of high merit, the sophomore class beat us, and the cup was awarded to Helen Handran. We were in charge of the Thanksgiving program. “The Diaboli- cal Circle” had for a cast some of our prominent students, in fact everyone was either an officer of the class or on the executive board. Our President, Horace Erskine, took the part of the villian. Our treasurer, Clifford Amero, that of a devoted lover, Fletcher Wonson was Cotton Mather, and Beatrice Madsen, his sweet little daughter. As a fitting ending, Martha Burnham read that delightful, yet pathetic story of “Benefits Forgotten,” a tale of Civil War time. 50 THE SENIOR FLICKER At this time, the football season came to a successful close by a defeat of Portland Catholic High on Thanksgiving Day. From our class, the following men gave their services to the team: Horace Erskine, Nate Ross, Milford Wilkin, “Hank” Souza, and John Whynot. December was ushered in by the opening of the basketball sea- son. The girls’ team had five of the members of our class. They were: Ellen McEachern, Grace Sonia, Margaret Gibbs, Catherine Meuse, and Edith Maddix. Jim Daniels, Jack Whynot, and Erlton Pomeroy were helping to have the boys’ basketball team have a banner year. Owing to a high rank in shorthand at the end of the mid-year, the following juniors were admitted to the Gregg Writer Club: Cath- erine Daley, Edith Dann, Anna Forbes, Edith Maddix, Dorothy Oakes, Edith Parsons, Kathleen Peeples, and L ?na Venturing Nothing much happened in February, except our first class meet- ing. Since it was our first, we got acquainted with each other, rathe than transact business. In April, the Latin Club furnished an entertainment and took as its hero, one of our members, Allan Smith. They certainly knew where to look for material. May was a big month for our class. The Beacon was to be edited by our Class Secretary, Martha Day Burnham, who had for assistants, Beatrice Madsen and Milford Wil- kin. We all know the May issue was the best of any, don’t we? To add to our fame, Ralph Stapleton captured first prize at the public prize speaking contest held at City Hall. Stapleton’s voice will go a great way toward making him a successful orator. June is here, the Seniors’ month. We have nothing to do but hope for good marks at the finals — so farewell. Edith Maddix SENIOR YEAR 1925—1926 We are seniors; that is, all those who are seniors. Past classes have started their year with a bang. We never heard it because we weren’t supposed to. Our class started off by being rushed. Miss Harris started the rushing-she always does- with a pile of homework. She informed us that many a little pile may grow into a mountain. Great shades of Caesar! Our turn came eventually. The football season opened. Gloucester rushed all the games but one and that one died from over speeding. This is the way a few prominent members of the senior class played. “Hit the line!” the coach he said. Dogs hit the line, knocked sev’n men dead. “Go around,” the coach cried out. Erskine lit ’ally “flew about.” “Up the field!” the coach he cried. And Wilkin pushed the line aside; THE SENIOR FLICKER 51 Ross ran through for twenty yards; The other team passed in their cards. “Jack” McEachern was our faithful manager. He could always be depended on and when the Rotary Club gave sweaters to the letter men, “Jack” was presented with one. “For the faithful, there is always a reward.” Elliott Lane was promoted from a sergeant to major. “Andy Gump” Babson was made an adjutant. Whynot and Erskine were the captains of the Companies. Allan Smith, Norman Ross, Alex Stanley, Kenneth Harting, and Andrew Hanson were the platoon lieutenants. One day they were caught singing : ‘urrah, we’ve got our medals, We’ll show the ’ungry bucks, We’ll step right on the pedals An’ raise ’em from the muck. Chorus ’Urrah we’re officers, we be. But the buck’s the ’ole bloomin’ company. Company B’s prize squad won at presentation. Gardner McDonald was made the first lieutenant of the band. For the first time in the history of the Gloucester High School the band gave a club period. It wasn’t a case of finding music in “stones and brooks” either. Geneva Watson won third prize at the annual prize speaking con- test. Milford Wilkin won the first prize. Ralph Stapleton won the Roosevelt Trophy on Roosevelt’s day. Milford Wilkin got honorable mention. We count it a great honor to have so many prize winners in the senior class. Like the purl of flowing waters Words flowed from off their lips, Settling on the listeners Like dew, drunk in by daisies’ lips. Grace Sonia, Catherine Meuse, and Margaret Gibbs starred in girls’ basket ball. Grace Sonia and Catherine Meuse also played on the senior girls ' hockey team. At one game Miss Sonia accidentally hit Miss Meuse on the head with her club. The club broke: Straight ! Straight ! Oh club in thy flight, Straight for Miss Meuse’s head, Broke ! Broke ! Oh club, by the might Of a solidness like lead. The Roosevelt Club presented a pageant at City Hall to raise money for a trip to Plymouth. During the “Barrel Organ” given by Martha Burnham the spot light went out, that is, out of sight. By so doing it fullfilled that old time proverb that “Little children are us- ually heard but never seen.” Ralph Stapleton, Allan Smith, and Milford Wilkin were supposed to sing “Tenting To-night.” There were plenty of harmonious dis- cords. 52 THE SENIOR FLICKER Concords of sweet song arose While the frog band croaked on. Dorothy Pendleton was the Statue of Liberty. She grew tired of holding her arm in the air, so she started taking dumbell exercises to relieve her arm before the spot light was turned off. Flossie Mclnnis fell for Fletcher W onson that night. She was the bride. Alton was in the audience. He must have been jealous. Any- way, Fletcher went out the back way. The love light shone within her eyes As she slowly came ; But her husband arrived too soon, Broke up their little game. The Beacon has been exceptionally good this year with Martha Burnham as Editor-in-Chief. Continued stories have helped develop this high standing. The April issue was dedicated to William Shakes- peare. Oh! it’s Shakespeare this an’ Shakespeare that. But Shakespeare’s long been dead, Still, Shakespeare wan’t a blooming fool ’Cause Shakespeare’s works are read. The senior play was written by Milford Wilkin. During the per- formance of the second act, the cook did not have time to change her costume before the second act started. On the stage, Hawkins the but- ler was receiving a little pummeling to lengthen the period till Hannah showed up. Sammy Taxis (alias Hawkins) said afterwards, “I felt like the whistle on a peanut roaster all blown apart.” The Rotary Club took the honor members of the senior class to Boston with the football and basket ball squads. The a fternoon was spent at Franklin Park, and the most popular animal was the mon- key. Some preferred the fowls and showed their vanity by picking the peacock. The Beacon Staff and Flicker Staff pictures have been taken. Allan Smith said, “I didn’t think I looked like that.” We didn’t either, but the camera does take freakish pictures sometimes. Graduation draws nigh. Until then we shall be spoken of as the Serious Seniors. Of the serious seniors, as has been said, They’ve a scepter in hand; they’ve a crown on their head; Let the serious seniors, wherever they be, Rule the world with scepter, with crown, and with me. Chorus Come pass ’round the goblet as quick as you can, Round the board let it pass, from man on to man. Laugh a little, cry a little, all in tune, Seniors are we now, but men we’ll be too soon. “0 serious seniors,” quoth World, ‘‘draw near!” ’Tis an honor to see ye, a favor to hear. THE SENIOR FLICKER 55 ising class. Among the 22 however, were such lights as : Ken. Harting, Bob Cronin, Roland Saunders, and Margaret Gibbs.) Although Myrt.

Margaret Quigley English Miss Harris Martha Burnham Ralph Stapleton THE SENIOR FLICKER 57 CLASS PROPHECY And it came to pass that at a meeting of the Senior Class, we heard the voice of our Class President saying unto us, “Go ye and write the future history of the Class of ’ 26 .” Whereat we asked in great agony “Who arc we that such a great burden should be placed upon us ? ” But he was obstinate, his mind was fixed, and he refused to lis- ten to our entreaties, however, just or what have you. One night we sat in our room trying to see into the future — but we couldn’t see that far. Wrath filled our minds at this injustice. Wrath increased to madness. We would write it, but it would disregard in- spiration and foretell anything of good or evil. As we penned the first lines of our intended prophecy, we became aware of a soft, unnatural light in the room. Thinking that overstudy was affecting our sight we looked more closely. Standing there was a figure clad in a garment of crimson, or perhaps it would be more correct to say maroon, regarding our work with disapproval. Filled with fear and awe we again took up our work hoping our visitor would depart. But the spirit, with a kind voice said, “What wrifest thou?” We were so moved by the gentle accents that our fear left us, and we replied, “The future history of our classmates.” To which the Spirit answered, “How canst thou write that which thou dost not know?” We almost replied that four years at high school had given us considerable proficiency in that art, but reverence held us speechless. The Spirit continued, “I am the Guardian of Glouces- ter High. I watch with jealous care the progress of her children. The past and the future are as one to me. If thou desirest, I will show you the course that each will take. What dost thou desire?” We humbly begged to be shown the next twenty years of our classmates’ history. The Spirit, allwise all-knowing, showed us the course each would take. As the Spirit spoke, we took down notes in the book lying open before us. These details we now possess, and we present the list, condensed and arranged, of life’s failures and suc- cesses. THOMAS ABRAHAMSON was hired as bellboy by the proprie- tress of a hotel. He is now the proprietor. Palmolive did it ! CLIFFORD AMERO is growing older. He claims the collar but- ton championship, having worn it every day for forty years except for a brief period when he had it replated, rebuilt, and overhauled. OSMAN BABSON is interested in poultry. He appears hen-pecked but will always be remembered as the first man to say after ten years of wedlock, “I love my wife.” DON BETTS is the inventor of Scientific Farming, but will be re- membered chiefly for his untiring work in Zoology. CARLTON CHADBOURNE is an instructor of the saxophone. Carl says his success is due to the training he got in the High School Band. HORACE ERSKINE is again in the public eye. He is a retired 58 THE SENIOR FLICKER business man, who is devoting’ his life to public good. His latest advice is “Beware of carbon monoxide gas.” ANDREW HANSON is president of a Clam Chowder trust. Andy worked his way to the top by selling fake health books. KENNETH HARTING, whose chief weakness is his voice, has en- tered politics. He is said to be interested in cars and matrimony. FRED HOLMBERG is now in the Boston Symphony. He recently won a fiddlers’ contest. Fred thinks a quorum is four male singers. ELLIOTT LANE is a circus announcer, having received his train- ing as head of the High School Battalion. Elliott is growing whiskers. His slagon is “Say it with alfalfa.” JOHN MacEACHERN, whose chief weakness is popcorn, thinks that Neutrodyne was a Roman emperor. He is now an instructor of sports: golf, Charleston, and pool. HAROLD MARTIN became a salesman for Emory, Wheel and Co. who hired him to sell “Bigbouy,” a tonic said to make one grow. Mike didn’t sell a bottle. He is now a bank cashier. NORMAN ROSS became a stock broker. He became bankrupt be- cause he bought Standard Dictionary for Standard Oil. RUSSELL SARGENT’S chief weakness is dancing. He is a suc- cessful tailor who believes that “a stitch at nine saves a rip at ten.” ALLAN SMITH recently invented a dry shampoo, and is living on the commission. He is married, owns a car, and shaves once a week. ALEX STANLEY was proprietor of a hotel but resigned to be- come a barber. He believes that “a hair on the head is worth two on the brush.” JOHN WHYNOT became a member of Congress, but was forced to resign because he confused basketball rules with Congressional procedure. RALPH STAPLETON is a very successful lawyer who believes that “where there’s a will there’s a lawsuit.” MILFORD WI LKIN’S chief weakness is his strength. He began as the police force of Essex, but is now a successful playwright. (He was really looking for local color.) WALTER ROBERTS is the original Ancient Mariner. He recently made a schedule for catching fish such as Rule 1 : Fishing good in deep water near shore from 8 :20 — 9 :13 daylight savings time except Thurs- days. FRANK SOL T ZA thinks Nux Vomica is a Cuban ball player. He is making money, but recently when postage went up a cent, he re- fused to send letters just for spite.

He has been knocking his opponents for a row of Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales. He was formerly a bookkeeper. THE SENIOR FLICKER 59 EMERSON ROWE is living a quiet life. He makes a good living as his wife is very good at ironing and washing. His slogan is “Many are called but few get up.” FRANK ROWE, by means of clever disguises, has gotten on more juries than any other living man. Frank does his own cooking, too. ROLAND SAUNDERS is a hotel detective. He believes that “it is better to keep silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.” ARNOLD JONES has impressed the world with his relentless search for knowledge. He has already written a geometry “trot” which simplifies the science greatly. MYRON WARREN says he is an aviator, who is interested chiefly in balloons. He is owner of four rubber-balloon factories, selling chiefly to circusmen. CHARLES HARVEY. Maybe you didn’t know it, but Charlie always could sing like a bull frog in a sweet soprano voice. So he is now known as the world’s greatest female impersonator. Man alive, what a hit he is! DAVID JOHNSON has taken on a contract to rid Australia of kangaroos. They give him plenty of room so that he can’t hurt any- body and let him blaze away to his heart’s content. Last year he killed one and wounded one. He killed the one with an axe. LEON LA FLAM. “Peanut” still believes that there’s no place like Rome. He works hard in his junk shop every summer so that he can take his wife and seven children abroad in the winter. PHILIP MacPHERSON is skipper of Wilson Pine’s new fishing schooner and expects to win the International Fisherman’s Race next fall. He sets his men a good example by sleeping on his watch. FRED McCALLUM. When Fred saw Tom Moore in “The Song and Dance Man” he said, “That’s all the bunk. I’m the best song and dance man in the world today.” He still thinks he is, so don’t wake him up. CARLE-TON McCURDY was recently arrested for accosting a girl in the street. The papers were full of the “cradle snatching bus- iness,” but it turned out that the girl was Carl’s own daughter and everything was 0. K. DONALD WILKINS is manager of the track team at the Hoboes’ College. Don takes his men over a five mile run up the railroad tracks every morning. He has established a new record for track walking. GARDNER McDONALD is now on the Gloucester Police force and threatens to get “Art” Smith if he ever sees him in Gloucester again. He still walks with a slight limp from having been run down by Art’s flivver. ELLIOTT 0 ’HEARN’S in the big leagues. He recently threw a baseball with enough force to knock the brains out of “Tony” Cour- ant’s head. Nobody knew “Tony” had any brains, so they gave El a leather medal. STILLMAN PARKS is the author of “Bugs and Buggy Folklore.” Stillie says “lam well able to write this book, having been acquainted for four years in the G. H. S. with all sorts and conditions of bugs.” 60 THE SENIOR FLICKER WALTER POWERS is now known to the radio world as “Bigger Brother.” Wallie is fond of telling his radio audiences of “what good times we used to have in good old GT. H. S.” JEREMIAH; ROACH is now a mighty tough state cop. The only way to get around him is to tell him a story about Pat and Mike. FRANK AMERO is quite a well-known golfer. He is the only man on the links today who does not wear golf socks and knickers. When he made his first hole-in-one, he exclaimed, “It’s the pants that did it.” SHERMAN ANDERTON is living comfortably on the royalties from his invention for shaving the warts off of pickles. He is now work- ing on a machine to keep dandruff from getting in the hair spring in watches. THEODORE BROWN is one of our popular song writers. His most recent hit is “Brown Who? What’ll I Do?” It is said that he pounds out the words with one hand on his typewriter and composes the music on the piano at the same time with the other. FRANK COURANT was in the big leagues until he was brained by one of El 0 ’Hearn’s fast balls. He made a success by never allow- ing the expression on his face to show whether he was going to bunt or knock a homer. KENNETH CRAIG has gone to Wyoming to be a cowboy. Ken is tired of city ways and longs to wear fur pants and play with rattle- snakes. He wants to come riding his mustang into Gloucester some day and shoot up the town. ROBERT CRONIN has replaced Thomas Bailey Aldrich’s book “Story of a Bad Boy,” by one of his own. Robert is so good now that he won’t let his sons play baseball for fear they will steal bases. JOHN DROHAN is in business with “Micky” Farrell. He says that if he can only induce his partner to be serious awhile that they could make a million by selling ice to the Eskimos. STANTON FARRELL. “Micky” says that Johnny takes life too hard and ought to have some fun once in a while. “Micky” is an ex- pert at opening slot machines with a hairpin and likes his work in the morgue. SOLOMON FELDMAN sold more peanuts and popcorn at the World’s Series last year than were grown in the whole territory of Alaska. “Shike” has willed all his money to his most faithful com- panion, his horse. JOHN GEARY may be seen at any of the better class of theatres. He is the born companion of Wesley Barry and the two stars are in great demand. His latest production is “Freckles and Waitresses.” THORNTON HALL has a clever exhibition of parlor magic that may be seen for two bits. He is known as the “Mystery Man.” The mystery is why they shot Abe Lincoln and let him live. See him and be mystified. RONALD HAMMOND, through years of practice, has at last become able to set the eight ball in the side pocket at the break. His pool playing is wonderful. The wonder is how they permit him to use the tables. THE SENIOR FLICKER 61 FRANCIS HANNIBAL is still living- in Gloucester and is in the plumbing business. He takes pail in all the ministrel shows and en- tertainments and is frequently heard in the “wee sma hours” as he sings his way towards home. MADELINE AMAZEEN is preparing for a better record in th Channel swim this year. It will be remembered that her time for the swin two years ago has never been equaled. MARGARET ANDERSON is selling fur ear-muffs to the Arabs in the Gobi Desert. So far the trade has not been so good, but Margaret is waiting for zero weather. ELIZABETH BAKER is now living up to her name. She is President, Janitress ,and Lord High Baker of Baker’s Bakery in Walla Walla. ANNA BOCKEN has been suspected, but never caught, as the leader of a famous gang of bootleggers. Countless numbers of “bills” and “dicks” set to watch her have been able to discover nothing. She’s not so dumb. MARTHA BURNHAM is now working for a gas company. Her job is to persuade people that it is wrong to put plugged quarters in the meters. Martha always was pretty good at persuasion. FLORENCE CARTER has discovered, after years of research, a sure cure for seasickness. Her conclusion, after 14 trips in a wash- tub in Bus well’s pond, is that the only cure for seasickness is to stay away from the water. VERA CEDERSTROM is writing under the pen-name of Ima Coniferae. Since the death of Fannie Hurst, Vera has bid fair to tum- ble Edna F erber from her pedestal. Good work, Vera, keep it up!

When taking a short cut the other night, she fell into a well and was there for 48 hours. CATHERINE DALEY has not been heard from since she volun- teered to venture the trip to Mars in the rocket launched for that planet 6 months ago.

MARGARET GIBBS started for the leper colony to “shoot a few 62 THE SENIOR FLICKER leopards,” as she expressed it.

She has made a success of her special stream-line model, designed to give less air resistance when thrown at hubby’s head.

ESTHER HARDING is still patiently trying to teach little Leon IV and Esther II not to pull each other’s hair but to be a credit to their fond papa. JESSIE HAY learned to run a Ford and ran down a pedestrian. She was acquitted because she said she thought he was her husband. ADA HUDDER has not been heard of since she eloped with the ice-man. She always was fond of Red Grange and probably thought that all ice-men could be gridiron stars. That’s where she slipped. AGNES HUDDER has now become a famous writer of good Latin trots and has thereby won the high esteem and admiration of Mr. Parsons’ fourth year Latin class. EVELYN KANE is the President and highest share-holder of a corporation formed for the purpose of utilizing old safety-razor blades. ERMA LANGLEY is the pianist at the Old Howard.

PRISCILLA MARSHALL is editoi of a reform neAvspaper. She says that girls of today must return to Avoolen stockings and long skirts.

Her husband lost money at poker and pawned her furs and jewelry. Her jeAvelry is still in hock.

It takes a lot of careful thinking to do this, she declares. CHARLOTTE NICKERSON is owner of a large laundry concern, which also supplies bandages. She says that the best bandages are torn from linen sheets. ALICE NIELSEN has married a rich oil man. She was formerly in a music store and got round shouldered from winding phonographs. DOROTHY OAKES is now the proprietor of the “Manchester Bakery” and although her pies and cakes don’t seem to be up to par, still the store always does a good business. Seems kind a queer to me ! ANNA O’CONNELL spent six years at a normal school to quali- fy as a kindergarten teacher. On the first day the principal mistook her for a pupil. EDITH PARSONS was last heard of in the Fiji Islands. She went there for the purpose of teaching the natives how to cook. It’s been four years now since we heard from her. I wonder if she succeeded. 64 THE SENIOR FLICKER HAZEL PARSONS recently won the national needle threading contest. She plans to get together a team and challenge France. KATHLEEN PEEPLES is marrying the man she recently knock- ed down with her car. Pedestrians are running awful risks now-a-days.

She believes that it is not right to feed a growing baby beef-steak, mince pie, or corn-on-cob. ELSIE RODERICK has had a nervous breakdown.

LENA VENTURINI is away on a treasure hunt on Dogtown Common. She claims that Whale’s Jaw is the petrified jaw of a real whale which was known to have swallowed 6 chests of Capt. Kidd’s treasure. ERNESTINE VIATOR was scheduled to sleep in the upper-berth of a Pullman but could not reach it by any manner or means and was forced to sleep in the aisle. The porter stumbled over her and broke his ' leg at the elbow. EVA VIATOR is now the head of the Society for the Prevention of Gum Chewing Among Cats. Eva tries hard to set her charges a good example, and when she does indulge, never forgets to park the wad behind her right ear. GENEVA WATSON is the owner of a large pretzel factory in Rockport. She has devised a new, unsolveable way of tying the pret- zels by hand and is working on a new variety of doughnut holes for crullers. HELENA WAY, Superintendent of Watson’s Pretzel Factory, has just sailed for Switzerland where she will endeavor to introduce her new “golf cheese.” This cheese is made in 2 varieties: 9 and 18 holes. CHARLOTTE WONSON has started a new fad in the country by running a Chinese laundry. Her custom of using green slips instead of red met with instant approval. Her business name is, Wun Lung Shy. The Spirit had finished telling us of our friends. We implored it to tell us more of our own future, but the Spirit had already begun to grow dim and to recede. Three times we tried in vain to detain it, but the Spirit escaped us and vanished, like an empty shadow or a fleeting dream. J. Fletcher Wonson Myron M. Warren 66 THE SENIOR FLICKER CLASS CALENDAR, 1926 September 8 Back to the same old grind. We are given homework for the first night. Home was never like this. 9 We wonder if the new teachers will appreciate us. 10 It is evident that they do not. Especially Miss Harris. 11 It becomes evident that Grace Sonia has set her heart on the major. 14 It looks as though she has him. At least, she says so — well, time will ted. 15 Charlie Steele appeared on the horizon, but the grind was too much. 16 Club period. Mr. Ringer gives advice. 17 We begin to realize the value of it and get down to business. 18 Recruits are called for the football squad. The freshmen show their school spirit. Freshmen gain more notice by coming out strong for the good ole’ spoil. 19 Club period. Mr. Ringer reads the riot act. 21 Traffic “cops” are stationed. The freshmen nearly grow out of their clothes when this honor is conferred on them. 22 We are warned not to take wrapped candies out of the lunchroom. 23 We begin to see signs of “Solly” becoming enamoured with a certain party. 24 No club period. We study (?) instead. 25 “Ken” Halting, the hopeful, seems to be queening E. Harris. Poor “Ken.” 28 W e are reminded that the team needs our financial support. More of us show our school spirit by joining the G-. A. A. 29 Some one left the door open in the study hall during the music period. We hope they close it next time. 30 The girls rake the officers over and decide that “Nate” Ross is the best looking. Cupid’s Notes: — More love affairs. Horace steps out with none other than Nancy Thornberg. Allan Smith still flying free as a bird. His doAvnfall approacheth him. The girls are just insane about ‘Gump” Babson. Some sheik that! “Andy” Hanson finds mirth in small voices, so he annexes Alice Grace. October 1 Month opens on a drill day. Bad sign. “ Jerry” Roach drills. 2 Second time Horace is seen talking with “Lizz” Colby. Maybe he has a STEADY girl. 5 No such luck. Horace is seen talking with Lelia Sponagle. That’s it, Horace. Love a lot of ’em a little, but not one of them very much. THE SENIOR FLICKER 67 6 Goodnight ! Athletic dues! Class dues! ! Everybody draws from his summer’s savings. Allan Smith cashes in a Liberty bond. 7 Football team goes like a house a fire on a wet day. Danvers thinks so. 8 Souza has just come to (Life) after the Danvers game and asks the score. 9 Miss Harris passes out the tenth English book. Have a heart, Miss Harris. 12 “Dogs” Whynot comes to school with a black eye. He said “Nate” Ross bumped him in football practice. Kind of doubtful, “Dogs” Nate seems all right. 13 Major Lane comes to school in a new uniform. Zowie, but the girls are all jealous of one another. 14 “Sammy” Taxis runs into Margaret Gibbs. Come down off your high horse, “Sammy.” 15 Band Drills. McDonald is seen trying to distinguish left foot from his right. What an entanglement. 16 Military Science list posted. “All those whose names have been omitted report to Colonel Hathaway for a period.” General rush for the Colonel’s office. 19 Excitement : Beacon box is ready for contributions. Freshmen and under classmen slyly slip their manuscript in when they think no one is looking. (But we were). 20 Colonel Hathaway commands the battalion “Battalion, Left Wheel! Giddap Dobbin.” 21 First meeting of the Service club . The freshmen swell still more. 22 Both Geary and McCurdy have their English prepared. Geary did it. 23 Gloucester vs. Methuen. All out to see Gloucester Win. 26 Gloucester won. We knew it. 27 Senior girls Hockey Team vs. Juniors. Grace Sonia hit Catherine Meuse in the head with a club accidentally. “Grace, that’s not the ball,” repreminded Mr. McNeil. 28 Assembly by Roosevelt Club. Stapleton and Martha Burnham speak. 29 Mr. Hazel takes charge of Band. Again Wilkin toots the old bass horn. 30 Marks Monday — Everybody hopes it rains. November 2 Cards come out. By the number of resolutions made the day re- sembles New Year’s. 3 Cards returned. Resolutions forgotten. I Beacon Pep Meeting, and it certainly was peppy. 5 Mr. Russell establishes a reputation for being witty. 6 No school. Teachers’ convention. Too bad these conventions aren’t held monthly. 68 THE SENIOR FLICKER 9 10 11 12 13 16 17 18 19 20 23 24 25 26 27 30 1 2 3 4 8 9 10 11 14 15 16 Monday all day today. Sammy Taxis falls asleep in the Study Hall. Where was Sammy last night? Armistice Day. A very impressive and fitting club period pre- sented. J. Roach spends the history period in manicuring his nails. Miss Harris gives MacDonald a few hints about the art of peda- gogy. We are reminded that we are to write a paragraph a night for English. And they say the tortures of the Spanish Inquisition were bad. Margaret Gibbs forgets her daily wad of gum. We wonder if she is developing absentmindedness with age. Ralph Stapleton wins the Roosevelt Trophy. “Nuff sed.” We still feel triumphant, but the underclassmen seem to be for- getful. We are given the usual “ light’ ’ (?) weekend assignments. We are informed by way of the blackboard that the dance will be the 27th. Sam Taxis tells (in History) the story of a cow that kicked left- handed. Beacon on sale Ten minutes later — All sold out, none for exchanges or advertisers. Thanksgiving Day. We give thanks for having the day off. We need it. Prize drill and dance to-night. Back to school, counting the days till Christmas vacation. December Hurray! only 13 more days of school before Christmas vacation. Martha weal’s a worried look. Must be thinking of the Beacon. Miss Wolfe forgets to give something “ extra’ ’ to look up in his- tory. Alex Stanley amazes Miss Parsons by having his home work done. We conclude that ' a certain “she” had another date last night. Horace is lost for an excuse. Strange, but true. “Wally” Powers does his Latin translation without hesitancy. Everyone looks surprised and exchanges significant looks. Margaret Gibbs comes to school with a “grand story.” Miss Harris forgets to “knock” anybody in her first period Eng- lish class. Must be something wrong. (Note — impossibility) Roosevelt Club entertain the faculty with a pageant and party in the gym. Ken Harting does not try to be smart. Looks as if there was some hope for him. Hope deferred. It was too good to be true. Allan Smith refuses Erskine’s aid in Latin. It was sight trans- lation. THE SENIOR FLICKER 6 9 17 Margaret Gibbs begins to learn the Charleston. Well, she has patience anyhow. 18 Senior Play is presented in City Hall. Mighty good to say the least. Much applause ! January 4 Harting resolves to study Solid, but changes his mind when he hears he has to study twenty propositions for test. 5 Allan finds page missing from trot. Gets excused from Virgil. 6 Entire trig, class present — both of them. 7 Sylvanus arrives at 8.45. Misses bus. 8 Lincoln-Douglas, I mean, Stapleton-Wilkin debate stopped in Room 2. Wilkin claimed there was a flaw in the 18th Amendment. 11 Sargent takes attendance slip directly to the office. 12 Wilkin damages another desk. 13 Lewis says he can’t go out tonight; he is going to have his hair cut. 14 Lewis’ hair same as yesterday. We hear he broke the bowl. 15 Lempi almost slips in Geometry, but still remains the ace. 18 Exams come 19 and 20 go 21 Virgil advances five points, I mean five lines. 22 Taxis absent. A quiet day. 25 MacDonald arrives without usual haircomb. 26 Sargent slips on Lunchroom floor. Falls ! 27 Piece of Miss Clough’s geometiy string missing. Everyone close- ly questioned. 28 Babson discovers a word he never heard before. 29 Hammonds is seen speaking to a girl. February 1 We groan as we see the athletic dues collector approaching us. 2 We are held up for class dues. Many go hungry. 3 “ Cliff” Amero recites in English; “Fare thee well, and if for ever, Then forever fare thee well.” 4-5 Snow, ring outs. Everyone happy. 8 No one has his lessons prepared. 9 “Sam” Taxis forgets to tell a joke (?) in history. 10-11 More snow. No school. 12 Many seen limping through the halls. It is evident that the snow was not so soft as it looked, or that some are not expert skiers. 15 Leila, Floss, and Pat Greenleaf seen talking outside of room one. These mud-slingers who manufacture scandal for us use no dis- cretion. 16 Babson gets “B” in an English theme and decides to be a writer. 70 THE SENIOR FLICKER fij ,ex gtahU -is- tKc-Oorld-s 9 r eo .t c 5 " t- r ed - hat r -tomc-Sa lesrnan go ' iiBTT roior THE SENIOR FLICKER 71 72 THE SENIOR FLICKER 17 Babson gets bawled out and decides to stay on the farm. 18 Mr. Parsons tells the girls they are more dishonest in little things than boys are. 19 “Art” Smith arrives at school on time. His watch must have been fast. 22 Leila Sponagle forgot to smile as she entered her home room. 23 Souza is absent again. We thought it was about time for him to be sick. 24 “Nate” has his French done. 25 Lessons poorly prepared. 26 No lessons prepared. What do we care, next week is going to be a week of freedom. March 1-6 Week oft . Basketball squad on trip to Maine. 8 Book reports. “Dogs” reads a book. 9 La-grippe. Casualties: 5 teachers, 126 pupils. 10 “Buzz” Smith comes to school. His first Wednesday. 11 Amero starts to catch up his trig problems. 12 Allan makes perfect translation in Virgil. Special mention. 15 Stanley and Whynot both do their Herman. 16 “Snows are snowing, winds are blowing, but where are we gonna be?” In school. 17 St. Patrick’s Day. Callahan wears green tie. 18 Ross gets 88 in test. Tells Miss Me Allester he would like to tutor French. 19 Senior class meeting. Lots of noise. 22 Seniors begin to pay Class Dues. 23 No shows this week, Seniors broke. 24 Mr. Parsons states he will start Ovid soon. 25 Latin IV class absent. Out of town buying Ovid trots. 26 Another senior class meeting. Motto accepted 117-1. The l-“Mike” Martin. 29 Football practice at recess with milk bottles. Nine broken. 30 Announcement : Milk $.10 per bottle. $.05 refund on empty bottle. 31 No boy buys milk. They don’t want the girls to see them waiting for a mere nickel rebate. April 1 All Fool’s Day. Miss Clough is fooled! Story comes with his geometry done. 2 We get our paragraph notebooks back. Some smiles but — 5 Horace is informed by Miss Clough that he is like a geyser in Yellowstone Park, always going off. 6 Agnes Hudder falls down stairs. We wonder if those are the first high heels she ever wore. 7 Alex Stanley can’t interest Miss Parsons in the club period just seen. It was a last hope. 8 Our songbird calls “Fletch’ ” o’ Wonson. He responds. THE SENIOR FLICKER 1 3 9 Presentation. We notice Fletch with his songbird. 12 “Liz” Baker puts her hair up. Must be growing up at last. 13 Mistaken, well it is a woman’s privilege to change her mind. 14 Andy B. asks to be excused from recitation in Geometry as he had to help his father last night. Did you milk the cows, Andy? 15 Bob Cronin arrives at school before 8:05. Doesn’t need a tardy slip. 16 Senior Class meeting. Boys’ dress committee chosen. Girls won- der whether they will wear Tuxedos or White Flannels or will resort to the usual costume. 20 Sammy Taxis appears in long pants. 21 Dr. Crane makes a good impression at City Hall. 22 Miss Wolfe is absent. We have a “sub”. 23 Groans over history homework. Why doesn’t Miss Wolfe come back! 26 Dogs Whynot says “because” instead of his usual “becuz”. Who is the “reformeress” ? 27 Senior girls have heated discussion over graduation dresses. 28 Marion Churchill, Alice Grace, and Anna Bocken are not to be seen on Main Street. Must be sick. 29 Several Seniors burn the midnight oil finishing History Essays. 30 Senior girls continue discussing the values of long and short sleeves for graduation dresses. May 1-9 Vacation. 10 Every one tired out after a w eek of rest. 11 We haven’t gotten over the shock of having home work last night. 12 We pose for the Flicker picture, but the worst is yet to come. 13 We are reminded that class dues are always acceptable. 14 Mr. Russell forgets to make a wise remark. 17 Our heart sinks as Miss Harris tells us our paragraph note books will be collected tomorrow. 18 Inspection Day. We wonder if we look as good as we feel. 19 After trying to get “ads” for the Flicker, we decide not to be salesmen. 20 We practice graduation songs. We wonder if they sound well; we think so anyway. 21 Grammar school day. To think that we were once like that. 24 Preparations are going forth for Field Day and the contest at Salem. May we be successful in both ventures. 25 Word goes forth that we may start the annual bartering period. 26 The school resembles a photographer’s studio. 27 “Andy” Babson has no trouble getting rid of his pictures. Too bad he doesn’t retain his baby locks. 28 Teachers begin to foretell what will happen at the finals if we don’t study now. 31 No school. Joy reigns supreme. 74 THE SENIOR FLICKER June 1 Commencement music is beginning to sound like something. We hope Miss Myers is not altogether discouraged. 2 Warmer weather and indolence. Ask the teachers. 3 Long drill in preparation for Field Day. Boys decide to join the army. 4 Field Day. Sergeants’ party. A good time is had by all. 7 Last week before exams. Many worried faces are seen in the corridors. 8 No drill ; boys all happy. Uniforms are passed in with a sigh of relief. 9 “Hank” Souza appears with a new shirt. We wonder what be- came of the checkered one. Hank’s sideboards are rumored as returning £o style. 10 All class dues are paid. 11 McCallum came to school and staged all day. Bob Cronin ditto. 14-15-16 We see a great many wobbly legs these days. We wonder if some people have reached their dotage, or is it merely the weight of these dog collars? 17 Whew! What a relief! Exams are over. 19 We look around for tearful seniors and under- graduates. We earnestly hope none will be found. 21 Flickers are all sold out. We wonder what commercial student won the prize for securing the largest number of undergraduate subscriptions. 22 See what you are coming to, under grads. We poor seniors have to go on a diet in view of the senior banquet. 23 Presentation Day. 24 Graduation. 25 And Farewell.

Fondly we’ll cherish these mem’ries, So sacredly treasure them all ; As with radiant school days ended, We answer the future’s call. Betwixt the dawn and the sunset, Where our hopes and our virtues lie There’s work that needs for the doing Such toilers as Youth can supply. T’will be there that you will find us, Striving on to reach our goal, Far out where the sunrise reddens The glorious sunclouds that roll. Milford Wilkin CLASS SONG On the air are ringing songs of joy and praise: Skies are blue above, Earth is filled with love ; Fragrant flowers streAvn along our sun-lit way, Nature’s beauty giv’n for our Commencement Day! In our hearts are ling ’ring memories so dear: June fills hearts with cheers; June fills eyes with tears; Let our hearts rejoice and have no cause to fear, Gladdest day and brightest day of all the year! CHORUS In our hearts, a singing born of joy and praise : Skies are blue above, hearts are filled with love; Blessings freely strewn along our sunlit way, Earth’s great tribute giv’n for our Commencement Day! Milford Wilkin CLASS ORATION YOUTH Sunrise, the dawn of day. How heartily we greet this beginning and hail it as a time to start anew. How eagerly we go to meet each day’s events with strong intent to make them count for more than yesterday’s. THE SENIOR FLICKER 77 For us, graduation means the birth of a new day. This gives us the chance to take up again tasks we have possibly neglected or for- gotten, to freshen our hearts and minds with thoughts of our ideals, and to decide more clearly and definitely just what goal we are to seek in this long day whose “low descending sun” will have marked its hours in years. Since each day demands its preparation, and as each morning we pause to think of what we have to work with, let us, while saluting this ,our day, think of what we have to guide and help us in our lives. First of all, we have health — health, that is worth more than riches, conducive to happiness and necessary for comfort. With strong and healthy bodies, we may set upon our work with confidence and vigor gained from the realization that, “A sound body maketh a sound mind. ’ ’ Then, too, we have a certain amount of learning. In the past four years through relationship with the best in science, in history, in mathe- matics, and in the languages, we have learned much of the foundations of these subjects. A mere smattering one might say in comparison to the world’s knowledge of such things, but sufficient to assure us of the need of further study. We have learned much of both past and pres- ent affairs of the world, of the wonders of nature, of the culture and education of man, and of all that is best in literature. Truly a goodly smattering ! Moreover, we have love ; the guarding, sacrificing, eternal love of our parents. This love, that teaches, inspires, guards, and comforts us, is a gift so great in its depth and warmth that we cannot value it too highly. Life, because of this shield of love, has seemed but a pleasant pastime, and life will always have a deeper significance to us because we know that this love exists. It would seem that we have everything worthwhile in preparation for our long day: — health, learning, love, yet we have even more. Very likely, in natural acceptance, we are unconscious and unappreciative of it — this greatest of gifts. Very often, too, we have foolishly wished this gift away, disregarded it, or ill-treated it. This gift is none other than “life’s beautiful moment,” YOUTH. We are the youth of today! Let us realize it, make use of it, throb with the joy and glory in the thought that life lies all before us. Now is the time to build the foundations of life tomorrow. Let us be true and pure, alert to make the most of our opportunities. Youth cannot be purchased and comes to us only once. It passes us by only too speedily, this our beginning of life. “Youth and its thousand dreams are ours, Feelings we ne’er can know again; Unwithered hopes, unwasted powers, And frames unworn by mortal pain.” All this we have; to aid us. until the sunset of our day; health, learning, love and youth. What challenge is there that we cannot accept? What demand that we cannot answer? With supreme faith, born of the joy of living, plus the spirit of Youth, we look to the future! Martha Day Burnham 78 THE SENIOR FLICKER PO£Tj?r ■ Inspired by the Beauty of Gloucester Harbor at Sunset. In the calmness of the ev’ning, When the harbor’s bathed in light Of the beauteous sunset colors, God’s rich off ’ring to the night, Comes a schooner in to harbor Under calm, majestic sail, While the fishermen are lounging Silently across the rail, Drinking in God’s richest blessing; A welcome home without a hail. Milford Wilkin JUST THINE AND MINE, 0 WHIP-POOR-WILL In the moonlight as I wandered, Caressed by beams of radiant light, Breathing in the infant beauty Of the calm celestial night : — There arose from out the woodland, Ushered on with pow’r to thrill, The soft entrancing melody Of the night bird, whip-poor-will. Ushered in with pow’r to banish All the cares and trials of earth, Giving peace in soft emotions, To our dreams and hopes, new birth. If in song my voice could praise thee, Thou musician of the night, Without blind injustice to thee As thy charmed song ends in fright : — Then I’d sing till heav’n reechoed, And from the valley, plain and hill Arose concords of sweet music, Just thine and mine, 0 whip-poor-will. Milford Wilkin THE SENIOR FLICKER 79 GRINDS Mr. Colman — When am I going to come in here and find you work- ing? Class — When you stop wearing rubber heels. Miss MacAllester (to fourth period class) — I hope your short test will be better today. Yester- day I marked so many zeros that I began to feel chilly. Mr. Hempstead (trying to ex- plain the evil of alcohol) — What Happens to a man who has drunk alcohol, after the first exhilarat- ing effect has worn off? Man — He takes another drink.

Dumb — I’ve got a perpetual motion machine. Dumber — I’m married, too. Amero — Do you know why you- ’re not red-headed? Babson — No, why? Amero — Because ivory never rusts. See Roach! First Waiter — Isn’t it rather close in here? Second Waiter — Ssh, this is the Sons of Scotland banquet. Taxis — I wonder if the doctor will give me anything for my head. Wonson — I doubt if he’d take it as a gift. The Indians agree that to the brave belong the fair. E. Forbes — These pictures are simply terrible. I look just like a monkey. Miss Smith — Why didn’t you think of that before you had them taken ? Edith M. — Margaret was all tired out so she went to the doc- tor. Aria M. — What did the doctor do? 80 THE SENIOR FLICKER Edith M — He looked at her ton- gue. J. Geary — Is there anything at all you’re sure of? Sam Taxis — I’m sure I don’t know. “Horrors!” exclaimed the fond mother. “Look at the baby, all wet and muddy! Willie, didn’t I tell you to watch your baby broth- er?” ‘ ‘ Sure, ma, ’ ’ agreed W illie, “an’ he sure kept me a-laughin’ most of the time ,too.” Russel Blatchford — Do they ring two bells for school? R. Sargent — Nope, they ring the same bell twice. Miss Smith — Betts, what kind of stocks are there? D. Betts (a farmer) — Corn- stocks and cows. Selling the Beacon: Student — You ought to take the Study Hall ,Mr. Russell. Mr. Russell — Sure, I will. Catch them young and watch them grow. Mr. Russell — What’s a good ex- ample of a brief ad? K. Craig — “Famous as to qual- ity” B. Smith — What, garters? Andrew H. (being arrested) — But, officer, I’m a student! Officer — Ignorance is no excuse. A sail boat is like a waiter — the more you tip them the faster they move. Elizabeth C. — I don’t think Chopin has good technique. P. Delaney — Oh really, I don’t know, I’ve never been out with him. Freshman — I bet you’re on the football team. N. Ross — Well, yes; I do the aerial work. Freshman — What is that? Norman — I blow up the foot- balls. Erma — I prayed for you last night. Allan — Next time telephone. J. Whynot — I have some very valuable papers here. Can yap ad- vise me concerning a safe place for them? Mr. Thurston — Sure, put them in the filing cabinet.

Webster Has The Words — Webster has the words and I Pick them up from where they lie, Twist and turn them one by one And give them places in The Sun. Here a word, and there a word — It’s so easy, ’tis absurd! I merely range them in a row, Webster’s done the work, you know! Word follows word, till inch by inch, I have a column! What a cinch! I take the words that Webster penned And merely lay them end to end ! Don Marquis in The N. Y. Sun Mr. Ringer Addresses the Senior Class at the Last Class Meeting Ladies and gentlemen of the Sen- ior class: Under this roof you are gath- ered for the last time as a trouble- some student body. In a few short days you quit the shadows of Gloucester High School, and go out into the great open spaces where men are men, where women are beautiful, and wdiere tailors don’t know you. I have watched you, students, for four long years. I have observed you carefully, alive or dead. You have impressed me with your relentless search for knowledge, your fine regard for law and order, your devotion to loud ties and hats, your good sense in wearing comfortable shoes, your consideration in closing doors quietly behind you, and your love of cereals. Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud of you. This is a great age. It is an age of young folks. Look at Bobby Jones! Look at Jackie Coogan! Look at Ma Ferguson! Look at President Hindenburg ! And so, my dear young friends, I say to you, Be honest! Be true! Be loy- al! Be careful! Don’t run after fire engines. Never wear your hat and coat to bed. in hot weather. Avoid playing with hot dishes, and never walk upstairs if there is an elevator. Goodbye and goodluck, and may some rich uncle leave you enough to give you a good start. I thank you. Interesting notes of Plymouth Trip A special chorus in the back seat of the bus began to sing, “Sweet Adeline.” Sammy T. (from up front) : You’ve got the names twisted. Presently they changed the subject. The sweet, clear notes of “Moonlight and Roses” filled the morning air. Ev- idently Sammy recalls pleasant memories because he appears at a loss for words. “Then I’ll be Hap- py” is the next song on the pro- gram whereon Thornton ably as- sisted by Sammy sings a duet in response. “Carry Me Back to Old Virginia” is the popular melody which they present.

Sammy calls : Say, where is that place? Sounds pretty good to me. At last they sang “All Alone.” Sammy (shouts in des- peration) : You will be in a min- ute. Mr. Grace — Young man, have you ever kissed my daughter? R. Sargent — I really couldn’t say, sir. Mr. Grace — What! You can’t say? R. Sargent — No, sir. You see, I’ve never seen myself. The long, gray roadster stopped at the Smythes’ door and the fair damsel stepped out. “I guess the joke’s on you,” she said, shifting her gum. “I’m not Miss Smythe, I’m her maid.” “Quite all right,” replied Billy Burnham. “I don’t own this car — I’m the chauffeur.” Evelyn Curtis (dreamily) — I wonder what becomes of the stars in the daytime. Grace B. (absently) — I know a lot of them sleep till noon. Milford (absent-mindedly) — Your ’re a dear, sweet girl, Flor- ence. Babe — Why, Milford; my name :’s Babe. Milford (recovering) — I say you’re a dear, sweet girl, and I love you with all my heart. First Senior — When can I hope to receive last month’s athletic dues? Second Senior (Musically in- clined) — ‘ ‘ Always. ’ ’ 1. Johnson (Looking for gloves) — Virgina, where are my gloves? V. Hall— How do I know? I. Johnson — Oh, here they are. Note — Isabelle had her gloves on. Miss Gaffney (to C. White who is hunting for pin) — Are you hunting for trouble? C. White — Yes, I’ve got a hand- ful. We understand the reason why Miss Smith is glad when Lent comes. She doesn’t find many pupils chewing gum. Miss Smith — McDonald, your credit side adds more than your debit, doesn’t it? McDonald — No, the debit is smaller. Andrew H. — Father, please give me some money, I am broke. Father — So’s your old man! K. Craig (reciting history) — McKinley was assassinated on September 6 and died on Septem- ber 5. A new teacher in school spied a three-legged £tool. Teacher — Is this the dunce stool? Voice — I guess so. That’s where the teacher sits.

Roach’s idea of a certain book he read as explained in a letter which he wrote to the author. “There were three parts which impressed me deeply. In order of their importance in my opinion they are : 1 The first love affair. 2 The war scene. 3 Settling down to hard work. Mr. Russell — What is a sense appeal? A.
