They are just as easily broken. It was Lincoln who said to the life service man “What you do speaks so loudly, I cannot hear what you say.” IPs a good thing to know what we are talking about and to say what we are going to do. IPs better still to do what we have promised to do, and to say as little about it as possible. Otheiwise we are apt to let our words get in the way of our action. We are so busy here in our effort to make this store where people can come and shop with the utmost confidence in the knowledge that what they buy is the best the money can procure at the price paid, that we don ' t have time to say very much about ourselves. We would rather let our good friends talk about us. They all know that they are not taking any chance when they recommend this store to their friends, as we guarantee satisfaction, and strive to give the best of service at all times. William G.

We shall remember her always as a clear thinker, a tireless worker, and a true friend.

For four happy years we have drifted contentedly through the seas of a high school career. Is it not proper that we should pause a moment to think of the adventures, hardships, and pleasures we have obtained during our voyage? Many friendships .which we have formed are soon to become memories of the past. Jn the future when we ponder over events of the past, let us think of our high school career as one of true worth. What a great pleasure it would be if only we might have the future disclosed to us. Yet this could never be, and so we must be willing to hoist our sails and embark for unknown shores. 11 Though desolate the way may seem, command thy fate, Send forth thy thought, achieve, achieved ’ A. B. ’27 AN ACKNOWLEDGMENT We, as members of the staff of our year book take this method of duly recognizing the work of our faithful colleagues. Without the support and co-operation of these friends we should never have succeeded in making our annual as great a success as it has been. Lest our co-workers suppose we fail to appreciate their earnest sup port, let us stand erect and with allegiance offer , thanks to Mrs. Woodruff, who has been of great help in our office management; to M 4 ss Spofford, who has been of unlimited service to our art section; and to Mr. Russell, who has advised in sales campaigning. A. B. ’27 LEST AULD ACQUAINTANCES BE FORGOT Every by-path of life offers to us the formation of friendships; some to remain steadfastly true and some to become severed. Mingling together as we have done during our high school career has brought to us great ties of friendships. Each day exchanging greetings and striving for the same ideals, we have become associated with many new friends. Yet life is not a repetition, and so a change is bound to occur when we step forth from the threshold of our school. Each avenue of life’s highway offers to us some opportunity to form new companions. We are the masters of our fate, and thus are responsible 10 THE SENIOR FLICKER for whatever we undertake. Some of us will be prosperous; perhaps in business, perhaps in happiness, or perhaps in wealth. Some of us may slip down the steep incline, while others perhaps with per- severance and fortitude may succeed in reaching the height of the summit. Although we must travel at a very swift rate and shall meet with many new acquaintances, let us always cherish the ones we have made at Gloucester High School. A. P . ’27 WHAT DO YOU KNOW? This is the first time in the history of literature that writers and column conductors have been able to make a living by merely asking questions. In the past few months times have changed. The stuff that used to cure halitosis is now just the thing for checking dandruff. Heretofore dandruff was checked with the collar of your coat. The same thing holds true in the literary realm. People who used to write novels are now getting out tidy volumes like “Answer Me That!” It means that if this craze keeps up, three year-old children can make $50,000 a vear. R. M. D. PARNASSUS To ramble through sections of Ravenswood Park is like wander- ing through Parnassus, the resting place of the Greek poets. One Sunday afternoon early this spring, I discovered - a new path which impressed me greatly, for it led to the most beautiful grove in the forest. Upon entering the path, the scene brought to my mind Long- fellow’s immortal lines; “This is the forest primeval, The murmuring pines and the hemlocks Bearded in moss and in garments green, Indistinct in the twilight.” The path was covered in spots with a soft green, carpet of moss, and the pines and the hemlocks on both sides, as well as behind and ahead, effected an atmosphere conducive to fertile thought and imagi- nation. The silence was intense, so very intense that I could almost hear it. Suddenly the wind shrieked. The bare branches of the birch swayed and whined in the air, and the steady rustling of the dry leaves on the path soon developed into a mad scramble between the oak and the birch leaves for supremacy of the narrow footway. Far, far beyond in the firmament above, calmly shone the sun, unperturbed it seemed, by the petty wrangling of the wind and trees. Unaffected, the flaming mass of fire gazed serenely upon its components of Nature, seeming ever to act the prjrt of an hedonist. But I did notice its i sauntered along, that the Enemy of Night was struggling to pene THE SENIOR FLICKER 11 trate the thickly matted tops of the hemlocks. And now as I con- tinued, I saw lying across the path, a tall, and once stately tree. Its branches lay quivering in Zephyr’s steady blowing — at once I stopped. As I gazed upon the tragic scene, l was carried to lofty Mount Olympus, whence I looked upon the cruel Fates who had struck down the once noble sentinel standing guard against all intruders. Re- luctantly 1 retraced my steps from the park ; I could not help think- ing in my compassionate emotions of the spiritual lines from Words- worth : “For 1 have learned To look on Nature, not as in the hour Of thoughtless youth ; but hearing oftentimes The still sad music of humanity, Nor harsh, nor grating, though of ample power To chasten and subdue.” Frederick S. Milgroom. ON HAVING A PICTURE TAKEN With the same thought as when approaching a dentist’s chair, 1 dragged myself slowly up the stairs. The phrase “Photographer’s Studio” will always be coupled in my mind with the sentence running “Ye who enter here all hope abandon-.” I entered wearily and smiled weakly at the wizard. He grabbed me and propelled me into a dark recess. He sat me on a very insecure and much too small stool. He left me alone in that dark chasm. A sound now as of some heavy thing dragged over the floor. A bright blinding light, a black rec- tangular object three inches from my nose. Also, a picture open mouthed, hair on end, wild eyes. Oh how can a night-majre seem so realistic t FI. S. Woodbury ’27 HATS (Feminine) A study of hats and their wearers in a subway car. Two cor- pulent ladies with piano legs occupy the seat in front of me. The blond has a brilliant Vermillion- turban effect perched on the top of her head. Underneath, her round, serene face beams forth with all the good-will light of a harvest moon. She has a new hat! Her companion looks as if someone had suddenly placed an old-fashioned mixing bowl on her head and pounded it doAvn firmly. She has not quite gotten over the surprise yet, as her face wears a slightly be- wildered look. A very slender, no, a scrawney lady has a. huge, black, droopy hat that envelopes head and shoulders completely, leaving one to wonder vaguely what is underneath it, if anything. An an- cient Italian with her Americanized son are farther down the isle The beautiful paisley shawl adorning the rotund little head and shoulders would not look out of place at the Country Club. And the timid, little grey-haired lady with the threadbare coat, her mouse- 12 TIIE SENIOR FLICKER colored hat trimmed with atrocious pink roses. You know that she went without something a long time to get that hat, andi she still has a tinv, satisfied smile on her careworn face. V. H. V. DOWN WITH BABY PHOTOGRAPHS Little did I realize at the innocent age of two how embarrassed my proud maternal parent was going to make me feel in years to come. Had I been blessed at that early age with an extra amount of intelligence, T would have rebelled when Mother suggested having my picture taken, but not being blessed nor having otherwise acquired enough knowledge to rise against authority, I had to suffer the consequence when Mother, just a while ago, displayed to the invited guests that photograph of me with an ear to ear grin, two sprouting teeth, eves. as big as saucers, and just hair enough for an apology. E. 0. H. SUCH IS LIFE In the nineteenth chapter of the works of Edgar A. Guest, the twelfth to the fourteenth verse, he is responsible for the statement that, “It takes a hean o’ living to make a house a home.” This means just what is says. It means that you can’t consider your house a home until the pip s hav n frozen, until the neighbors have rubbed the doilies off the backs of your chairs, until they have laid wet cock- tail glasses on your p ' ano. untT thev have tipped an ink bottle on your oriental rugs or broken the rocker of an antique chair. Then and then onlv can you consider your house a home. R. M. D. POLITICS Consensus of Political feeling shows that the country favors Smith’s Nomination, but the country in general wants to know which one it is. They want to know whether it is the one with long whiskers on the left side of the box, or the one with the short crop on the right hand side. Then there are some who would favor an economical can- didate for the Republican party. If Borah is installed in the White House, he will save two dollars a moiRh on haircuts alone. Under Ooolidge’s administration this countrv has saved 3,165,000 more cigar coupons than ever before. He should be given another term. R. M. D. HOW I BECAME A DETECTIVE Poets are born not made, but when you think of it, so is every one else. My parents wanted me to be a poet and emulate Burns. Too late they discovered that I was too far advanced in my detective THE SENIOR FLICKER 13 studies to become a poet, so they gave me a haircut and banished their ambitions for a poet. In my fourteenth year I was graduated by parcel post, from a, detective college. The faculty sent me a tin badge. This enabled me to attend all fires, chase ambulances, and try to get into theatres. My first big case was when Judge Landis hired me to investigate the awful scandal when the mighty Casey struck out. This is how I attained detective fame. B. M. D. THE BEST BALL GAME OF THE SEASON The game opened with “(11116” at the stick — and “Measles” catch- ing. “Cigar” was in the box. “Shortcake” played short and “Corn” was in the field. “Cabbage” was manager because he had a good head. “Egg” was umpire and he Avas rotten. “Song” made a hit and “Sawdust” filled the bases. Then “Soap” cleaned up. “Cigar” went out, and “Savage” started to pitch but he went wild. “Ice” went in and kept cool, until he was hit by a ball, then you should have heard “Ice Cream.” “Lunatic” was put out because he was off his base. “Lightning” finished the game by striking six men out. “Bread” loafed on first and “Light” was put out at third. “Crooks” stole second ,and “Knife” was cut down at the plate. “ Crass ” cov- ered lots of ground, and the crowd cheered when “Spider” caught a flv. “Steak” was put out at the plate. “Clock” wound up by striking out. If “Door” had pitched, he would have shut them all out. B. T. C. ’27 A WORTHWHILE LIFE “Like one blindfolded groping out his way, I will not try to touch beyond to-day, Since all the future is concealed from sight, I need but strive to make the next step right.” Every individual mind differs in its opinion of what is a worth- while life. That which seems worthwhile to one may seem almost unbearable to another. In every worthwhile life the most prominent feature is a pur- pose. To some it may be the cultivation of a talent, the learning of a trade, or the performance of a duty. If we wish to make this pur- pose a corner stone of our life, there must be something more than mere effort to outshine some other. Behind every purpose there is the act of perfecting out character. We must make ourselves fit to live with. “Beyond me lies the cycling rounds of years, With this small earth will die the thing I do, The thing I am goes journeying onward through A million lives up on a million years. ■ ■ 14 T1IE SENIOR FLICKER My work I build, as best I can and may. Knowing all mortal effort ends in dust, 1 build myself, not as I may, but must, Knowing, for good or ill, that self must stay.” If we but view life from every standpoint, we will see that it is worthwhile. A. B. ’27 FUN JUST FUN Yesterday afternoon while taking a walk, I came upon a big overgrown boy standing in the center of a half a dozen dogs. He had tied them together, and by means of a vicious whip he was en- deavoring to make them travel around him in a circle. I rushed up and took the whip from him, and asked him what in the world he was doing that for, and he half sullenly replied, “Just for fun!” The day previous to that I lead in the papers that two boys had been arrested for tying two cats’ tails together and hanging them over a line to see them fight. After being questioned by the officer as to the reason why they were doing such an act of cruelty, they replied, “Just for fun!” Young boys must have their fun, that is right and desirable, fun for the fun of it. Flun for the thrill of it. We all must have thrills or else life becomes drab and routine and colorless. We live for thrills. But it is very important that we seek only the right sort of thrills and forget the wrong sort. There is fun in serving other people. There is fun in being thoughtful at home. There is fun in earning your own money and paying your way as you go. It is fun to create things with your hands. There is no thrill in the world like the thrill of making some- thing useful that has been greatly praised by your superiors. No man ever lived who had more fun than did Theodore Roosevelt. He left one good suggestion to all clean American youths that enjoy thrills and want to live. “Hit the line hard, don’t fail, don’t flinch, but hit the line hard.” ELLIOTT ANDERSON ’27.

Na- turally, we were rather timid at first and lost our way a few times, but, being a large class, we compromised by telling, if we knew, the other students the way. We were also helped by the upper classmen and soon got into the swing of affairs. The first public event in which the Freshmen partook was The Roosevelt Trophy Speaking Contest. They were represented by Wil- liam Clark Jr. and Madeline Davis, both receiving much praise. We took part in many activities and the Flreshman Class sur- prised the upper classmen by their skill in playing basketball. Another of their great surprises took place when the Freshmen had their play. We were represented by Margaret Firth, Beatrice Markelin, Roy Griffin, James Abbott Jr. and Bradley Frost. It proved to be the best class play of the year. The Freshmen were also represented in the Annual Brize Speak- ing Contest. The speakers who tried out for it were so good that four speakers were chosen to represent us instead of two as is cus- tomary. The speakers were : Louis McEachern, Robert Callahan, Muriel Bradley, and Madeline Davis. They did surprisingly well. This class has been the first class that has had pantomimes in speech. As a whole, we did very well with them, one being pre- sented at the City Hall during the Brize Speaking Contest. Slowly but surely, from such a humble beginning, it is easily seen that, future leaders, now among the Freshman Class, will equal, if not surpass the records made by our predecessors. Isabelle Powers ’30. THE SENIOR FLICKER 49 On a fine autumn morning- the Good ship 1929, was launched — the eighth of September 1925, to be exact. The crew lined the boat fore and aft, smiling brightly and praying earnestly that He would permit the craft, to attain success in its journey through the most important seas of its whole career ; namely, the Green Freshman Sea, Soph O’ More Sea, June Yore Ocean, and last, the Seen Yore- Sea. It has been the good fortune of this little craft to have sailed success- fully through the first two seas of its maiden trip. Let us review the events of the journey thus far. FRESHMAN SEA Among the crew of the Good Ship 1929, there were quite a good many who became famous owing to the fact that they possessed cap- tivating personalities as well as no little beauty. Two girls, who were outstanding in this group were Robina Airth and Dorothy Bradley, while two of the male vampires were Robert Gaffney and Reginald Jackson. Reggie, (let it be here stated) was the “baby” that Gert Firth, class of ’26, was supposed to have snatched from its cradle. However, we believe that Reggie did all the stealing when he stole Gert. Then too, among the crew of this boat there were many sailors, who were very brilliant and who stood high in their studies. These highlights were as follows: Florence Baker, Dorothy Bradley, Bertha Hay, Marion Harvey, Dorothy McDonald, Natalie Stanwood, Dorothy Steele, Alma Swanson, Bcss.c Nielson, Carolyn Torrey, Archie Gor- don, and Edna Gallagher. It was the aim of several of the shipmates, during their passage through the Freshman Sea, to aid in the making up of the magazine, the “ Beacon.” The following were reporters during 1925- ’26: Rus- sell Blatchford, Archie Gordon, Lawrence Joseph, and Margaret Mac- Donald. As was proved in the Roosevelt Trophy Contest, the Good Ship 1929 has among its members some very good speakers. Robina Airth and Ruth Kennedy represented 1929 in this contest and Ruby carried off honorable mention which created quite a stir, as it was something, indeed, unusual for a Freshie to win laurels over the upper- classmen. Then, in the prize-speaking contest held during April 1926, Genevieve Silveira carried off the second prize, while Ruby. Airth was winner of honorable mention. Now let us turn our attention to the Girls’ Basketball Team of 1925. Those girls of 1929, who made the squad were: Olive Parsons. Margaret Snow, and Bessie Nelson. On the Boys’ Basketball Team there was but one Freshman — Russell Callahan. On the sixteenth of January those on board our ship began to THE SENIOR FLICKER 50 notice a gathering storm. Ttic wind rose higher and higher and blew more fiercely with every second. Then, on the seventeenth of Jan- nary. the storm struck them. The masts of the craft creaked and groaned as the velocity of the gale increased; the sails were puffed with the wind; the waves were whipped into veritable mountains of water. In spite of the fact that the boat seemed about to capsize at any moment the Good Ship 1929, rising and falling with the breakers, neither quailed nor faltered before the storm of Mid Year Exams, but kept steadfastly to her course. This storm, which continued for three whole days, finally ceased permitting the regular routine of the ship to be carried out. To Marjorie Cole and Mildred MacDonald go the honors for mak- ing the Field Hockey Team. Marj. was also leader of the mimetic exercises in both the Gym Meet and the Field Day Exercises, while Mvrtle Hall led the Indian Club drills in the Gym Meet and on Field Day. We have followed the ship through most of its journey, keeping an account of the studious members of the crew, as well as the ath- letes, speakers, and beauties. Now let us turn to the brighter side and follow them through their social honors. At the Presentation held in Vpril 1926, Miss Dorothy Bradley was sponsor for Battery A. Those members of the crew who were musically inclined joined either the Band or the School Orchestra. The boys who joined the Band were: Chester Dennen, William Carlson-, Reginald Stuart, Bar- net Wallace, Forest Levie, Warren Spurting, Ralph Naves, Hyman Sandler. Those students who became members of the School Or- chestra were: Margaret MacDonald, Eleanor Saunders, Eleanor Casey, Ona Anderson, Vein© Leihtnen, Russell Viator, Arthur Sidell. As the Ship 1929 was about to reach the end of the first lap of its maiden trip the waters of the Freshman Sea began to grow thicker and thicker with sediment, and the crew began to prepare for another storm such as they had experienced in January. Again the exams raged for three days ; but our craft bravely weathered the storm and came through with flying colors. The Finals were over; the Good Ship 1929 had traversed the Freshman Sea thus shortening her jour- ney by one-quarter. Wo will now say “auf wie dorse hen” to our lit- tle craft as she lies lazily in the harbor of Vacation Land. For two mouths the boat lies in these waters, after which it will proceed on the second lap of its journey. SOPH O’ MORE SEA With great gusto and vim, the Good Ship 1929 entered this sea., and as it sk’mmed lightly o’er the waters, was the recipient of no lit- tle praise. With renewed vigor, the crew entered into its duties, setting an excellent example to the underclassmen. The crew gloated over the fact that they no longer had to sit in the bailcony during assembly — deep down in their hearts they were glad. During this part of the journey the same people continued to be THE SENIOR FLICKER 51 the proud possessors of good looks and captivating 1 personalities. Ruby enjoyed the distinction cf enmeshing the heart of a certain young officer (not a policeman); Reggie and Bob were still “the rage,” smiling their ways into every girl’s heart, “knocking them cold” with but a glance. The class of ’29 again proved its worth to the BEACON by ccnti buting several worthy people for the staff. Margaret McDon- ald, Myrtle Hall, Blanche Somers, Arthur Smith, and Archie Gordon, distinguished themselves in this field, Priscilla Orne deserves praise for her poetic ability. During October of 1927, the Roos evelt Contest was held, wherein the boat 1929 made an excellent showing, with Robina Airth and Percy Story acting as representatives for the ship. Then, in the an- nual prize speaking contest, Ruby Airth and Genevieve Silveira ably represented 1929. Genevieve took second prize while Ruby received honorable mention. The Girls’ Basketball Team of this year had a highly successful season. Perhaps this great success was due to the fact that three of the girls of 1929 were on the team . These girls were : Dorothy Steele, Bessie Nelson, and Olive Parsons. On the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth of January the good ship 1929 passed through the wretched straits of Mid-Year Exams. What a barrage of questions were thrown at the crew. How- ever, the boat managed to pull through these dangerous waters with respectable marks, still retaining the high grade of scholarship and honor w r on in the previous sea. The School Band, during this year, was about the best it has ever been. The members of the vessel who were attached to this band were: Chester Dennen, Rginald Stuart, Ralph Naves, Hyman Sandler, Forest Levie, Warren Spurling, William Carlson and Barnet Wallace. Margaret MacDonald, Una Anderson, Vieno Leihtnen, Russell Viator, greatly helped the School Orchestra by lending their co- operation and team work, as well as musical ability. Then came the Finals — those dreaded and awful three days when the members of the various ships undergo fearful examinations as the boat journeys along through the Straits. But after the three days are over, the silver lining of the dark cloud comes to light, and the crew enter upon another period of rest and — shall 1 say — convales- cence (0 in the land of Vacation and Play. Thus has the good ship 1929 completed half of its lengthy jour- ney without serious mishap and injury. Let us of the crew of ’29 hope for a still more successful time to come as we enter upon our duties in the June Yore Ocean and, with our bow ever heading for- ward and onward, let usi continue in the way we began — sailing ever on and on. Blanche Somers ’29. THE SENIOR FLICKER Listen, my children, and I’ll relate The tale of the class of twenty-eight, Who entered this high school in twenty-four Mere Freshmen. Yet now I feel sure That none will forget that happy date. They said to each other, “Well, here we are — It’s certainly strange, and queer, and big, But we’ll start right in despite each bar, We’ll do our bit. We’ll plug — and dig, Which they calmly did with never a fear. In spite of the usual joke and jeer, In spite of the razzing and riding, too, That all Freshmen get — Yes — they came through With flying colors! (Silver and blue.) Oh, we weren’t perfect — no, not at all. No Freshmen are — but we found our place And kept it. Yet answered every call For anything that we could face. As dramatists — well what could cap The performance of “Benny” and “Jimmie” and “Dap” In their stage presentation at City Hall. For the leading Star, Bingo, who acted so well. ’Tis rumored that this was the time that Phil fell. In athletics, our girls then started to shine With Lucy and Ora and Gladys, the line Was begun, and with Dot. and Amelia to carry it through. Well — we won almost always — What else could we do? Then Miss Austin produced a cute Latin Play In which several Freshmen took part. Then one day For “Columbus” by the History Classes Miss Wolfe chose several more Freshman lasses. There were boys that were clever as Bfinniek and Call, There was Bentley for wit, the jester of all. There was Dapper for looks, and Ronka for brains, There was, heavens! I never could write all the names! And athletics — well as for “Jerry” and “Honey” They speak for themselves. Now, isn’t it funny? That only one class -should have all of these, Gan you blame us for being a little bit pleased? THE SENIOR FLICKER 53 And the girls — what with Connie and Bingo and Pet And Ellen and Esther and Jean and Janet, ' Sides numbers of others I never could name, Who honors for good looks and cute clothing claim. Then there’s geniuses too — take Minnie and Mid What Mildred can’t write simply couldn’t be did! Well, now to come back to this class of renown. The next year found out that the Freshmen had flown. We were Sophomores now and quite in our prime, What if we did have conceit for a time? For confidence goes hand in hand with conceit And though the latter is foolish, the former is sweet. And so with this confidence built we a step Once more toward our goal — and chock-full of pep. We joined all the clubs and societies too, And paid all our dues whene’er they were due. We hired big trucks for the far football games To cheer the boys — and shouted their names Until we were hoarse. And then in the school On the Beacon our class shone out as a jeAvel, . With Mildred and Pauline and Jeanette and Jim And Art for cartooning — oh, don’t forget him. Then we gave plays and readings for “Home Roomers’ ” pleasure, We gave to the honor roll o’erfilling measure Oh yes— we will always — our Soph ’more year treasure! And then came another vacation, and then Almost ’fore we knew it school started again But now we were Juniors — yes — jolly — ’tis true, But older, and wiser, and quieter, too. No longer the thoughtless, free children of yore, No longer, the gay care free pert Sophomore. But now we’re aroused to a strange sense of being That soon the departure of friends we’d be seeing, Those last dear companions who) through each school term Had been there beside us — Their praise we MUST earn. So we started anew with new strength and pep To win for ourselves a lasting good “rep.” First — Ave elected neAv officers fine President Ronka was first in the line ; Vice-President Brinnick and Treasurer Call, Gfreely as Secretary — yes that AA T as all. More excellent officers could not be found With such a start — to Avin — aren’t Ave bound? Then we decided to give a nice play So we wrote one ourselves about Thanksgiving Day, As “papa” Jim Greely just couldn’t be beat While the “Kids” (Mid and Bernstein) Avem — well just too sweet, And then soon came Christmas and so in Room 10 THE SENIOR FLICKER 54 I bey decided to put on a new play again, This wasn’t original — from a store it did come. But a Sunday School nlay — very nice — very dumb, So they made it a burlesque and very dramatic Which made every actress seem a fanatic. It made neople laugh so that’s all thev cared. Even- if it really Avas s ’nosed to be sad. Other rooms gave socials and parties as well And which was the best we never could tell. But one thing remains that’s quite weird and strange Many officers ate so much they had pains Yet they gave no social — how’s this explained? Then in another club program — a play “Not to the Swift” Avas presented, and say! Noav Avho made the hit — why Bob B. of course Who kept us all laughing until Ave were hoarse. And Amelia as Avell as the heroine true Who for her boss did just all she could do. And George Toby also — an actor should be That our class is gifted — it’s easy to see. Then later, one day in the chemical lab Calmly tAvo people tAvo medals did grab. Naturally Brinnick did one of them win A mere fifty dollars — ’TAA r as nothing for him. He only has Avon by his genius this year One hundred and tAventy-five dollars. ’Tis clear That he can’t be stupid, for he won once before For a Chamber of Commerce Essay some more, And one other time in the “Traveller” too A prize. I Avonder hoAv much more he’ll do? Minnie Perry, the other prize essay did Avrite Can you blame us for saying our class must be bright ? Then later at Prize Speaking — we ask you avIi o But our Edna Graham won that contest, too. But Ave haA en’t finished — and Avon’t A r ery soon — Don’t forget Corinne Wilmoth — Her essay on “Prunes” Calmly won fiftv dollars as Avell — By the Avay, You Avill read that Ave’re all millionaires some fine day! Then Presentation arrived Avitli its thrill Of Avhose squad and company would win the drill. Well, we don’t need to tell yon that Cornu ’ny A Avon — With Bingo with Phil — AA r hat else could be done? And also you notice Avhose squad Avon as Avell. A junior’s — George Ronka’s — environment tells. As Sponsors, a senior and junior were chosen By their Beauty — each person present was frozen. THE SENIOR FLICKER 55 For Alice, as senior, so dark and so stunning In simple white silk so soft and becoming Set oft by the rose on her shoulder and waist Oh — who could compete with this beauty and taste? None — none BUT OUR CONNIE so wistful and sweet A morsel of charm from her head to her feet. Her hair long and golden piled high on a head Of which things by poets alone should be said. The long dress of taffeta — pink and demure Yet speaking aloud in its charm and allure. How could one possibly judge of these two Which was more beautiful? I can’t — Can you? But I will say this 1 — that we’re proud to compete To have some in our class who may stand on her feet. Beside Alice, the senior, unrivaled for looks. Whose beauty one ne’er sees except in big books; Who may stand up beside her and not be out-shone, And next year may claim the vacated throne. Of course Presentation Day’s yet to come And then we Juniors will stand out some. I wish I could write what will happen then, How our boys will receive more honors again In commissions and medals and every thing Our class will make the old bell ring ; But anyhow now we’ve finished our task And we have only one thing to ask . Next year we’re seniors, the last short hop Of a journey that we’re loathe to stop We only hope that next year too Our record will be quite as bright and true That no black clouds will marr our way ; ; That Lady Fortune’s here to stay — But now — look out — we’re off — Good-day! B. F. ’28 56 TIIE SENIOR FLICKER The following is an excerpt from Major Elliott Devine, Jr.’s diary, which has been of unlimited value in recording this history: DECEMBER 31, 1999. With the consent of the Municipal Coun- cil, today I have issued a charter to the respective proprietors of the North Shore and Strand Theatres. Said charters grant unto these proprietors a contract of land which is inclusive of Whales Jaw on Dog Town Common. With consent having been obtained from the city executive, Sam- uel McQuire, proprietor of the North Shore Theatre, staked out his land the following day, which proved to be none other than New Year’s Day in 2000. Another excerpt from His Honor’s Diary: JANUARY 2, 2000. McQuire ’s workmen have begun digging the cellar and tomorrow expect to blast Whales Jaw. I have received an invitation to be present at the destruction of said historical land- mark. It seems almost unbearable when I think way back at the lime when charming damsels and prehistoric Sheiks of Gloucester High School made love beside this very boulder. Next day Mayor Devine, Jr. awoke very early from a night- mare. Having washed and eaten his breakfast of creamed codfish, boiled potatoes and coffee, he buttoned his coonskin coat about his throat and went out into the garage. He jumped into his ticklemo- bile, and after squeezing the no-me-not, pinching the touch-me, and poking the leave-me-alone, away he went o’er hill and dale and through mystic veil. He arrived at the scene of destruction just in time to see a little diligent, tow-headed inhabitant of Lanesville inserting a stick of dyna- mite in a drill hole, which had already been made in the rock. Then the fuse was ignited ejnd with a rumble and grumble which sounded as if the world were about to face its death, there followed an explo- sion, and then a gust of thick hazy smoke issued from a crevice in the boulder. There in the midst of a turmoil of gravel and slivers of rock lay a small tin chest and attached to it was a little golden key. The treasure chest was unlocked and the contents were disclosed to an enthusiastic grou p of spectators. Concealed in a rubberized fold of canvas lay a large parchment book. This book contained a thor- ough history of the greatest class that Gloucester High School has ever produced. The next day’s issue of THE GLOUCESTER DAI1A TIMES contained the news in large headlines. Let us together unfold its contents : GREAT HISTORY OF IMPORTANCE UNEARTHED Contents Reveal an Account of the Most Prosperous Class Glou- cester High School lias ever Produced. In September of 1923 there entered the public Gloucester High TIIE SENIOR FLICKER School a throng of students who were destined to lead the school in every activity. This class lived in an era when beauty had gathered such a hold upon the public; that anyone who was not for it was con- sidered an enemy of society. Nature had intended that humanity should be good to look at and hence these people were pretty. Tim elegance, refinement and splendor with which the flapper students adorned their persons at this period of history would make the Presi- dent’s daughter look like last year’s straw hat. Wavy hair was of course in yogue as it has been for ages. One of the most prominent of figures, Russell Spinney, always flourished a permanent wave and later other students accepted the fashion and marcels became a vogue with the masculine gender. The wise seniors, realizing that fcjr their own safety this great multitude of freshmen must be kept in good humor, and many of the male students wishing to snatch “Lib” Colby and a few other inno- cent flappers from their cradle, decided to welcome us in a brotherly manner. So just to be respectful boys and girls, we attended their Hallowe’en Party and swallowed their sagacious advice which was fol- lowed by sufferable cases of dyspepsia. Being of an ambitious and restless nature, we decided to show our “stuff” and thus made our first professional appearance in a Thanks- giving play. Mid Shute was the most dissatisfied child, but her par- ents, “Hank” Anderson and Alice Whittemore, tried to console her and she finally agreed not to kick at hash but to wait for the next course. THE BEACON realizing that it could not get along without our assistance adopted Elinor Parsons, Marjorie Robinson, Ownie Steele, and Thad Call. From then on Gloucester High School had a new BEACON. And, oh boy ! how the sheiks did drill their first year. Of course, they didn’t have uniforms, but were mightly proud of their old Springfield seven pounders. At Presentation our prize squad, con- sisting of Ownie Steele, who was 1 to become a great leader in military tactics, Phil Doyle, Willie Brown, Marty Welch, Bob Callahan, Russ Spinney, and Pat Goodwin walked off with the honors. When Good English Week came around we were represented on the stand by Alice Whittemore and Helen Handrail. Helen was merely getting practice for next year. Next day Lib Colby came to school quite excited. L pon ques- tioning her we found that she and Flivver Martin had been for a ride the preceding evening and because Flivver’s) car had been just barely moving she’d asked the reason why. Flivver said he had been speed- ing around a corner and the blamed thing turned turtle. Of course, we see the point but “Lib” had always supposed Flivver meant what he said. The High School Orchestra was not making enough noise so Ownie Steele, “Issie” Kline and Joe Thomas decided they would help. As a result we had some music next club period, and speaking of club periods, how we did sit in the balcony with mouth s a-gape, THE SENIOR FLICKER 58 and eyes glaring (if you don’t believe me watch the freshmen at the next club period) at some particularly forceful speaker as he waved Ids arms in the air and shouted at the top of! his voice. We used to think that they were merely escaped inmates from Danvers who were trying to give us an idea of what insanity really is. (We’ve learned better since.) In girls’ athletics Grace Burnham led. As captain of basketball she was assisted by “Peggy” Whitmarsh, Margaret Martin, “Polly” Brayman, Eleanor Groves, and Muriel DeSouza. Three of the girls made the school team. At the annual gym, meet a victory was again chalked down for us when our class walked off Avith the cup. At Presentation club period Mr. Ringer read off the names of “Meggy” Lane and Phil Doyle as being Sawyer Medal winners for the year. “Meggy” certainly has a fondness for A’s as the years have proA r ed. Our freshman year finally came to an end, and as we look back we can not help note w r hat a series of victories it Avas. It can truth- fully be said that as freshmen we held the respect of all upper-class men and accomplished nobly Avhatever work Ave undertook ; thus we do now take leave of our freshman year and advance to the next step- ping stone of our high school career. Along with the arrival of September 1924, our class, the chosen of Olympus, took up anew its journey to fame’s heights. And, indeed, many there Avere Avho gained fame, yet little fortune, during that memorable year as Sophomores. At the beginning of the school year Coach Thurston called out the candidates for football. Immediately five members of the class respo nded. “Christie,” Doyle, Smith, Steele, and Worrall, all had regular berths and in June were awarded letters. E’en such a small child as Johnnie was destined to become a great leader. Anthony Madruga and Helen Handrail represented the Sophs at Interclass Speaking Contest. Both gave excellent speeches, but Helen, deemed the best speaker of all contestants, Avas awarded first prize. The girls attempted to emulate the boys and gain athletic honors. Although they did not have a particularly successful season never- theless they defeated our hereditary opponents, the freshmen. “Not every soul can win the race But always running right Some feet must tread the mountain’s base, Before they gain the height.” Again Grace captained a team comprising “Ev” Curtis, “Polly” Brayman, “Eddie” Hyams, Eleanor Ryder, Alice Sandberg and 4 ‘ Peggy” Whitmarsh. Later in the year a contest Avas held to determine the Avorthy orators in the school. Shirley Wilkin and Parker Young ably repre- sented us. Shortly after this contest “Dot” Murphy Avas aAvarded a prize of ten dollars in merchandise for her essay on “The Advan- tages of Trading in Gloucester.” THE SENIOR FLICKER 59 The Olympic Council, or Latin Club under the direction of Miss Austin and the Pontifex Maximus, Phil Doyle, enjoyed an exceedingly successful year. Many delightful entertainments were given, and a picnic was held at Dol liver’s Neck. Clam chowder and Sirloin Steak, native style (Hot dogs) were cooked by the chefs, “Mid” Shute and Callahan. Annah Burns, Elinor Parsons, Marjorie Robinson, Phil Doyle, and Lovell Tarr were “Beacon” Staff Members. Aho and Call put snap into the issues with their peppy cartoons. So the year advanced until with the awarding of Sawyer Medals to Annie Nelson and Lovell Tarr, our class disappeared as Sophomores, only to appear once more with even more distinction as Juniors. Juniors! Ship ahoy! What a year of remarkable accomplishments this proved to be. Our boys were, of course, the most luminous figures in the field of spoi ' ts and the football team boasted of “Bob” Ashlin-°, “Baker” Silva, “Honey” Curley, “Phil” Doyle, “Dingles” Christenson, “Ownie” Steele, and “Skipper” Morrissey- Coach Thurston said the team was like counterfeit money — “The halves were full of lead, and the quarters couldn’t pass.” “Now pupils,” said Miss Hill, our English teacher, one day, “write all you have learned about King Alfred, but don’t say any- thing about the burning of the cakes. I want to find out what else you know.” Half an hour later Art Smith handed in his effort. “King Alfred visited a lady at a cottage, but the less said about it the better.” (and he passed in English.) Naturally being people of such exceptional ability we all ad- vanced one step upward on the “Beacon” staff, this year. Call and Aho still enlivened our magazine with cartoons, while Dot Vivian sup- plied us with continued stories and Mid Shute added snappy contribu- tions to our departments. Assistant exchange-editor was cared for by Lib Rogers and assistant editor-in-chief. Annah Burns. Our joke reporters were Marj. Robinson, Madruga, Ed. Smith, and Elinor Par- sons. If Miss Harris published everything received, where would the Beacon be? This little notice was received from one of our reporters and requested to be published in our joke department as an adver- tisement : “This news of English we tell the latest. Writ in perfectly style and most earliest. Do a murder committ we hear of it, and tell it Do a mighty leader die we publish it and in border somber. Staff has each one been schooled and write like Kipling and the Dickens. We circle every town and exortionate not for advertisements.” Of course, this contributor meant well and we have published other articles writ- ten by him. Our most conspicuous advancement was to elect a protective body, consisting of Owen Steele, class president ; Anthony Madruga, vice-president; Grace Burnham, secretary; Philip Doyle, treasurer; 60 THE SENIOR FLICKER and an executive board consisting of Willie Brown, Christie, and Bernie Pratt. Peggy” Delaney and Madruga defended our class honor at Trophy contest. Peggy’s statement, “Men come here to drink the beauty of Gloucester,” will ring ' in our ears forever. Yes Peg, it’s sad but true. Next under Miss Green’s supervision we were able to present the best Junior Thanksgiving Program that has ever been presented in the history of G. H .S. (of course, we are not trying to create any bard feelings with our friends, but all who saw the play will confirm this statement.) Alice Fall and Ed. Smith were the sweetest brother and sister you ever saw and Nelson Lawson a most promising Doctor of Divinity. At first Prize Drill of the year Henry Lasley won, while Frank Welch received honorable mention. Frank has also made a success of his chemistry course and received $20.00 in gold for his essay on “Chemistry in Fishing Industry.” At Presentation Ownie’s squad gained highest honors, and next year we find him bearing the title Major. Indeed, he has proved to be a most dignified as well as good looking officer and has made an exceptional hit with the feminine portion of the class. For the benefit of those pupils interested in speaking, a prize contest was held at City Hall. Marguerite Tucker gave an interest- ing reading of “The Highwayman,” and Shirlie Wilkin presented her topic “Dicky and the Dancing School” in a very clever manner. At graduation Thelma Stickney and Bernard De Coste walked off with Sawyer Medals. It seems as if the members of our class get away with almost everything. Thus just as the two preceding years passed, so did our Junior year, only to be followed by a still more remarkable one. Seniors ! Already we have become crowned with dignity and capability. As we walked through the hallways, it seemed as if every- one’s eyes were upon us, but did we falter? Not one bit! Now if you folks expect to keep pace with us, you must put on some more speed. Sit down and avoid accidents ! There goes Isadore Kline “copping” the Roosevelt Trophy for this year. What did we tell you; if you’re not accustomed to such fast driving, you better get out a nd walk. Devine did his best to get the trophy, but only one can ever win a race. Elliott decided to cultivate his oratorical ability and has become a prominent character about toAvn selling caskets and Old Gold cigarettes. Next we expect to see him barking for the Barnum-Bailey side shows. Land sakes alive! What do you s’pose we did next? Why Mid Shute wrote our Christmas Play and what a whale of a one, too. Everybody laughed and laughed and laughed some more. Ev. Forbes amused the freshmen with his Santa Claus suit, and one little fresh- man wondered if he had borrowed Santa’s suit. This year THE BEACON was more than successful, and avc find the staff being supported by Doris Vivian, Mid Shute. Elinor Parsons, THE SENIOR FLICKER 61 Willie Brown, Marj. Robinson, Annie Nelson, Alice Powers, Ev. Fo rbes, Eleanor O’Hearn, Ed. Smith (our loyal athletic reporter) and Ann ah Bums, editor-in-chief. Under the faculty advice of Miss Wolfe, Mr. Ringer, and Mrs. Parsons a new Service Council organization was formed and this group of co-workers tried very hard to enforce the laws and rules of (Gr. H. S. discipline. The recording secretary of this council was Phil Doyle with Annah Burns, chairman. i On February 25, the most memorable day of our class history, the senior social was held in the gymnasium. Much credit for the success of this affair is due to Bruce Shoares, our able financial man- ager. “The most spectacular affair of the evening was the elimina- tion dance. This smacked of a put-up job as Rus. Spinney’s prize was “Grimm’s Fairy Tales.’’ “Baker” Silva gave us a solo and after the social was over Edna Harris was heard inquiring, “What was the matter with your singing, you were simply screechi ng.” Baker replied, “Oh, I was only hitting on one tonsil.” This year Bob Ashline was chosen captain of baseball, and with such a brilliant showing having been made thus far, we expect a successful season. Nate Ross piloted the football fellows through a rip-roaring season . Our boys all rushed out to the field and this year was a victorious one. The loyal letter men were : “Baker,” “Honey,” “Christie,” Morrissey, Doyle, Ownie, Worrall, Smith, and Callahan. Carl Sampson has paraphrased the line, “To bicker down the valley” from Tennyson’s poem “The Brook” as follows: “To have an undignified quarrel in a low place among the hills.” Now folks, we ask you isn’t that logical? Our R. 0. T. C. officers: this year were not only popular with the young ladies but dignified military leaders. Capt, Brown became quite popular with the girls, while Capt. Doyle remained true to his first love. The title of Major inclined Steele to appear fickle in love, but we know that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Now, folks, if we knew what the future held in store for us, we would reveal it all to you, but since this is impossible we must seal this chapter with hopes for a successful life to come. In unison let us spread our wings and fly to the land of adventure. THE END The following year Major Devine, Jr., was again elected to the mayoralty as the citizens felt his administration had been one of worthwhile accomplishments.

Chemistry and Physics also received votes for the most popular subject. CLASS PROPHECY It was at the reunion of that famous old class of ’27, which was held at the clubhouse of the Rockport Country Club in the year 1945, that I gathered together the details which are to follow concerning the members of that class. Tnis reunion was the best one we had had since our graduation, and neajrly all of the old gang were there except, of course, the few who are always unable to be present because of some slight illness or those whose “wife’s mother died suddenly — sorry. Wish you the same.” Or some other similar excuse. You know the kind. Well, anyway, the confusion of “Hellos” and “How are Yous” was just dying out, and everyone was congratulating Doris Vivian on the success of her latest novel “Around the World in Twenty Min- utes,” by V. H. V., which had won the Pulitzer Prize that year, when the venerable Sam Taxis of the Taxis Radio Company Incorporated and Radio Czar of the v eil-known station W. A. I. L., leaped on a chair (he hadn’t grown an inch) and yelled, “If congratulations are to be in order, I’d like to announce that Miss Edna Harris has just been signed as the leading lady of the Lazy Limb Chorus, which is now playing at the Old Howard in Boston. Of course Edna was mobbed by all her friends, and it was some time before things were com- paratively quiet again. Then Taxis went on, “There is another announcement I want to make and that is, “Don’t forget to tune in on station W. A. 1. L. on Friday the thirteenth at 7.13 o’clock and hear Elliot Anderson, and his symphonic harmonica band of twelve pieces.” Russell Silveira was there and was the first one to go up and shake hands with “Jake.” Russ said that he would be the first one to tune in on the concert. But Marjorie Robinson Avas there, so she told Russ that he was taking her for an airplane ride on Friday night, whereupon Russ shut up. However, when normality was resumed, I scoured around amongst the crowd and tried to mind everybody else’s business but my oavii and check up on Avhat everyone was doing in the world. I noticed Spinney over in the coiner sitting all by his lonesome. 1 found out that he wasn’t married yet. Poor Russ, he doesn’t yet know what it’s all about. He still thinks that F. F. Pot. is a pot roast and Halitosis is something to eat. I noticed that Edwina Hvams Avas massing and on inquiring, I found out that she had attempted to swim the English " Channel, but Avhcn she discovered that she Avas be- THE SENIOR FLICKER 67 yond her depth, she left the water ar d has never been the same since. Everything was going well, and everybody was enjoying the banquet. Everytime Devine would eat a mouthfull of food, which was about every five minutes, he would open a box and take something from the box and. place it in his mouth. I knew he used to eat peanuts that way in school and upon inquiry, L found that it was not peanuts, but tab- lets he had invented. The name of them was the D. D. D. W. Tablets for speakers. Devine used to be a great speaker, so he knew all about the pill game, because he knew what every orator needed in order to make a perfect speech. I asked him why he named the tab- lets so, and he replied that the first three letters were for himself and the last for a great singer he once loved while in Gloucester High School. He still loves her despite the fact that she won’t listen to his speeches. In a corner of the room sat the forty-ninth wife of old De Wolfe Hopper — none other than Ethel Swanson. Ethel had always yearned to be rich, and now she was realizing her wish. Unfortunately Hopper was unable to attend as he was in court settling a former alimony case, While I was rubbering around, a small two-seated plane landed and drew up to the door, and who should get out but Meggy Lane, candidate for Selectman at the coming election in Ipswich, with her campaign manager, Elizabeth Rogers, who is receiving her tutoring from Hon. J. Edward Parsons, successor to Henry H. Parsons, who sold his building-moving outfit to Ed. Ed. recently bought the Post Office and moved it over in his back yard. Eithel Proctor is chief cartoonist for Margaret. Ethel has always had the desire to be a cartoonist ever since she was complimented on the picture of a monu- ment she drew once. She remarked later that she didn’t mean it for a monument, she meant it for Gardner Porter. The general trend of conversation in the crowd seemed to be something about numerous cases of Ptomaine Poisoning at the Addi- son Gilbert Hospital, but this was soon cleared up in my mind when I learned that Winnie Morrissey was chief dietitian at that institu- tion. Poor Winnie never could get along at the lunch counter either. I noticed that Johnny Worral was absent, and I found out that he was entertaining some of the members of the Freshman Class of ’45. While I was enjoying myself eating, the hum of a plane disturbed me and my classmates, and presently another big passenger plane, driven by Bernard DeC ' oste of the DeOoste Three Point Air Line (Rockport-Lanesville-Duncan Street) drew up outside, and out stepped a few more notables of the class of ’27. There was Kay Marchant, now chief librarian at the Annisquam Library, which has increased its number of books to 29; Ella Pike, well-known scientist and suc- cessor to Miss Crawley at the new High School on Poplar street ; and Mildred Read who thought she was going to get left and brought her own lunch. She couldn’t eat it though, because she forgot to bring a can-opener. I found out that Gerald Carl was selling vacuum cleaners in 68 THE EE XI OR FLICKER Gloucester. He recently tried to sell one to Grace Hammond, but failed when she replied that she didn’t have any vacuum to clean. Looking around me 1 saw Bobby Callahan talking with Lib Colby. Bob had finally acquired “IT” and had entered the movies. His latest picture was the sensational production of Elinor Glynn’s “Five Yeat Hoses.” Lib had become a veritable Peggy Hopkins Joyce and was trying out her ninth accessory. Russell Gagnon is now running a road house on Dogtown Com- mon. He was recently arrested and found guilty of cutting up old rubber boots and automobile tires in his fried clams. 1 was talking with Ed. Smith for awhile, who informed me that he had entered business and was selling a contrivance which was used to cool houses heated by the Bulldog. I asked him if business was hot, but he only laughed. Wilfred Brown is now a shiek on the mighty Sahara. He got tired of being a shiek in Gloucester, so he went to Arabia. I under- stand that he imported some girls from the freshman class at the Gloucester High School for his haiem. Mary Fanning and Evelyn Curtis are the proprietors of the Little Mouse Tea Room in Oshkosh, which offers for entertainment Esther Alphen at the typewriter (Winnie Burke did belong to this group, but she left to be married to a great orator.) Norman Ross is expected to graduate from college this year. He has been there seven years already, and he isn’t a teacher either. William Shea, William Robinson, and Ralph Story are appearing on the stage at the Strand on Wednesday night after eleven in “Blonde, Strawberry Blonde, or Brunette.” Of course you all know that Owen Steele was graduated from West Point 8 years ago. He has been three times promoted. From Private to first class Private, to Corporal, and to Sergeant. He was recently called down by Charles Parr, now of the regular army and filling the place of Sergeant Dailey at the Gloucester High School, for not giving his men enough work to do, which is unbelievable. Alice Rowe was in a, recent typewriting tournament and wrote 232 words a minute for 3 hours, but was disqualified because she made 1 1 errors and the limit was 10. Lillian Dunn, Edvegcs Souza, and May Smith have lately signed a contract to appear in the Spinney Follies at Rockport Town Hall. They are keeping their school-girl complexion by patronizing a prom- inent beauty shop run by the Stickney Sisters, Margaret and Thelma. Dorothy Stoddart was recently employed here, but she beautified her- self to more extent than her customers and was discharged. The Parisian creations for this group come from the French Dressmaking Establishment of Miles. Margaret Norris and Alice Powers, whose pur- chasing agent is Esther Varney. Marjorie Joyce and Gladys Jacobs have accepted positions with the firm as models. We are sorry to announce it, but Robert Oliver, Fred Rhodes, Thomas Hudder, Ralph Cairns, and their ringleader Frank Blatch- ford are now under arrest in the Duncan Street jail for trouble caused with the Coast Guard on the high seas. THE SENIOR FLICKER 69 Congratulations to Annah Burns, who is now writing the Rocky Neck News for the Gloucester Times. Adeline Bray and Muriel Aiken are the heads of the Consolidated Examination Corporation which produces over 500,000 examinations per annum, which are guaranteed answer proof. The most difficult question published last year was: What kind of tree is the Washing- ton elm? Shirlie Wilkin and Annie Nelson came in on one ticket this eve- ning due to the falct that there are only two hands between them. Annie is under airest for the robbery at th Rockport 5 cent bank and is in the care of Shirlie, who is matron of the Joliet Prison. The law requires that the prisoner be handcuffed to the matron. Annie always longed to experience “crookdom.” Helen Malen was discharged from the Telephone Exchange for listening in on a conversation between Alice Fall aind Bruce Shoares. Helen says she only heard 55 minutes of the conversation. Robert Hogan is now driving the road roller for the Highway De- partment, and Harold Dexter walks in front carring the red flag. Everett Dion is wanted for the murder of a; mail-man at Lanes- ville. Dion thought the mailman was a Confederate soldier. Harry Christensen is now a doctor. He did not inform us to what branch he was in, but he said he performed his last operation at Swift ’s. Lovell Tarr and Walter Aho are now models for the cartoonist, Thad Call. Tarr and Aho appear as Jutt and Meff. I found out that Gordon Parks was a registered druggist and had a store on Derby street, where Helen Pothier was a practicing physi- cian, practicing with Gordon’s Prescriptions. I also found that Elunice Tucker is now manager of the H. T. Donot Shop, Gloucester’s famous night club. William Orpet is now Mayor, Alderman, Chief of Police,- Chief of Fire Department, taxi driver, city clerk, and caretaker of cemeteries at Cole’s Island. Three of our number have become actors. Carl Sampson has taken the place of A1 Jolson. He is known on the stage as “Mid- night.” The other two are Baker Silva and Shrimp Pratt, who are co-starring in the places of Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton Their latest release wa s from states prison. Robert Ashline has been indefinitely released from big league baseball for getting into a heated argument with the umpire. Bruce Shoares is running a dairy in Riverdale. His slogan seen on milk stoppers is “Shoares’ cream; you can’t beat it.” Llewelyn Nelson has written his latest book “Fashions for Women.” Art Smith has taken over the osteopath business formerly con- ducted by his father. He recently attempted to perform a surgical treatment on Burt Morrisey, but Burt couldn’t stand the rough treat- ment. Smith is resting comfortably in the hospital. For once he’ll be on time. 70 TIIE SENIOR FLICKER City Marshall Arthur Goodwin will be unable to attend this eve- ning-, I understand, as he is on the trail of Maurice Foley, who has escaped from Danvers. Foley was last seen on Dogtown Common waiting for the street car. Alice Sandberg has invented a salve for the creation of dimples. Marguerite Tucker has broken her friendship with Alice because she sold Marguerite some of the cream and Marge got fallen jaws and so lost out on a. beauty contest conducted by the Taxis Radio Com- pany Inc. Kathryn Parks was hired last week to be nursery governess for the Man children. Their mother was formerly “ Peggy,” the great Tammany Hall leader. Marr was formerly with a circus. He took the place of the laughing hyena when the former died. Marr received his training in laughter at the G. H. S. Alice Collins is running a “Marry If Lonolv” column in the Times. She was successful in bringing together William Morris and a wealthy Rockport widow. John Hyland and Katherine Lowe are partners in the office busi- ness . Katherine dusts the office, and Hyland dumps the rubbish. Philip Doyle is minister of the church at East Gloucester. He practices his profession fluently and repeats the Bible quite frequently on the streets. I had always imagined Everett Forbes would enter the adver- tising side of business life, but such was not the case. He told me confi- dentially that he intended to do this sort of work during his years in G. H. S., but the way the ads came in for the Flicker of 1927, killed all his tastes in that direction so he erected “Hobo Inn,” a night club in Pigeon Cove, with Joe Keating and (Hus Harting as his partners. All three were quite well-to-do and Harting had had the radiator of his Nash re-finished. Refreshments for the evening were in charge of Doctor Fred Mil gro-om, (Prohibition was still in effect) and Eugene Perry, an army surgeon. The two managed to produce quite a con- coction. During the meal Isadore Kline, now a professor of music, and John Harmaala, an equally famous cornetist, rendered selections of the day. As an extra entertainment Gene Groves nd Priscilla Delaney danced for the house. They had to dance for the house, because that was the only thing that was watching them. T learned that Gene was a very successful engineer, having just completed his tenth and great- est suspension bridge, while Priscilla owned a large millinery store in Boston. The several reporters present to write up the affair for various papers were : Rena Macchi of the “Gloucester Times,” Henry Easley for his own paper “The World” printed in Gloucester and sold all over the country, and Frank Welch reporting for the “New York Sun.” Frank was the Neal O’Hara of the day with a little of Bill Cunningham realness thrown in. Bob Smith was the owner of a string of hotels covering half the United States, and ' he made his home in Florida. He did not arrive until after the refreshments as it was a two-hour ride up from Florida THE SENIOR FLICKER 71 and he was late in starting . Everett Wadsworth, his business man- ager, came with him. After dark, as Lasley and I sat smoking on the veranda, I drew from him the details of what those of the class he knew were doing. He told me that Nelson Lawson had achieved fame in the east as a radio announcer and held some stock in the Taxis Corporation. Har- ris Woodbury, he said, was the Captain of one of the largest of the Cunard liners. He was married and made his home in New York. And Elinor Parsons, whose Latin translations I will never forget, had become chief librarian in the Boston Public Library, where Anthony Madruga is employed dusting catalogues. Eleanor 0 ’Hearn’s name was mentioned during the conversa- tion but, of course, I had seen her curls on the silver screen many times. She had taken Mary Pickford’s place in the hearts of the Am- erican people . Reginald Deacon had made a success of the practice of law, but the lure of the open road was too much upon him, and he. left for parts unknoAvn. When last heard from he had visited all but four countries of the world. He prefers Hollywood, however. I was quite surprised to learn that Grace Burnham, or “Val” as she was better knoAvn, was not married at all, but was now Sen- ator Burnham. Eleanor Carroll had also entered politics and was Avell-known in governmental circles. Of course it wats nothing new for me to hear of Mid Shute, although I was used to hearing her stage name. She Avas a most famous dramatist and rivaled the memory of Sarah Bernhardt. I might add also that “ Uncle Tom’s Cabin” Avas still playing Avith Bill Burnham and Russell Johnson taking the parts of the bloodhounds. Ethel Borge, Henry told me, was a French teacher in a New York High School, while Sophia MacQuarrie and Betsy Cairns were teach- ers in Boston Latin. Gladys Clark was intending to go to that school because she said that she had a good knoAvledge of Latin and ought to do well in a school that teaches nothing but Latin. I was mildly surprised to learn that Kathryn Parks was living in Paris — I expected something different of Kay, but then she never did like Magnolia. Dot Murphy was also away from the U. S. She was married to a missionary and they were living in Japan, but were due home in December. Eleanor Herrick was the well-to-do owner of a jewelry store on Rogers Street. Margaret Whalen was still in the fog but had made plenty of greenbacks on collapsible airplanes, while Winnifred Cronin was made equally prosperous from an invention to catch them. Both Beatrice Roberts and Dot Rust, he informed me, were teach- ing histoiy in Gloucester -High School. Dot was, as of course everyone knows, the star pupil when Miss Wolfe taught there? ? ? ? ? Ellen Wilkinson was also working in a school but not exactly as a teacher — she had charge of a large kindergarten in Chicago in Avhich the youngsters were taught the art of self-defense. Finally I learned about Ruth Wonson, and I certainly got a great surprise. I always pictured Ruth as a person of scholar! r THE SENIOR FLICKER interests, but it seems I was greatly mistaken for at the time of the reunion she was Brier Neck’s most popular seasonal society hostess. Well, in looking over my report I see that I have accounted for everyone in the old class — more than I expected to do when I started. And ’27 was a famous class, in fact the most famous senior class of 1927. When we were freshmen Captain Dunlop, a beloved military leader of our R. 0. T. 0. said, “In the year 1926-1927 the R. 0. T. C of G. H. S. will have over it the best set of student officers it has ever experienced. And believe me that was no mean statement. When the reunion was drawing to a close and the guests were entering their respective planes preparatory to leaving, Sam Taxis came to the front once more a nd said, “Come on everyone — three rousing cheers for the good old class of ’27.” And you may believe the cheers were given with a will. Then, just as the dawn of another day was breaking in the east, there was a sudden thunderous roar of motors, the sweep of many plajnes across the ground, and the final take-off amid the flurry of white handkerchiefs waving — “Goodbye.” RUSSELL T. GAGNON, EDWARD SMITH, MILDRED SHUTE. THE SENIOR FLICKER 73 SCHOOL CALENDAR, 1927 September 8 The Freshmen arrive. 9 Once more we gaze upon familiar faces and scenes, but alas, for only a year longer. 10 Only a few pages in English homework. Perhaps Miss Harris isn’t so bad as she has been represented. 13 Horror of horrors! It took three hours to do English homework. We begin to change our minds. 14 Mildred Read hears of Irving Berlin. 15 Sampson has an original excuse. 16 Mr. Parsons finds out how dumb we are. 17 “Ken” Harting spoils Miss Harris ' seating plan. He is given private lessons on the alphabet. 18 “ Peggy” Delaney begins to wonder if she will pass U. S. history. 21 Honor cards are passed out to the girls in Room 20. They arc to record every time they whisper. 22 Miss Harris informs Anderson that his name is the only “A” article about him. 23 The major wears his uniform. 24 “Kay” Marchant tries to “make” the major. 27 Club period.

And when we have learned what awaits us, how can we face it? For what purpose have been the advantages gained from the high school, and how can we utilize this Knowledge? How eagerly we gaze at the world before us, but do we know how to stand up and look the world confidently in the eyes? We are the Youth, and now is the time we must learn how to take our places in society as destiny has decreed. We are all leaving the high school. For some it is the end of school; for others, only a stepping-stone to higher education. But in either case, we all must be aware of certain facts, that is, we must possess the best qualities that will sell us to the world. Cicero said, “Four qualities are essential in a great commander — scientia, virtus, auetoritas, et felicitas, ” which means experience, courage, prestige, and good fortune. But I add one more essential characteristic — INDIVID- FALITY. In general interpretation, we are all potential leaders. Have we not enjoyed the privilege of a more than ordinary education? For those of us who continue our study, this education will help us become leaders when the time draws nigh, and for those whose education, whose school education ends here (Education never stops. We are always learning something whether it be in school, or in books, or in the life about us) these qualities will help in the work we may adopt as our own. We are all commanders — commanders of our fate. Is not the biggest, the most stupendous task in the world that of guiding and commanding our lives and destinies? It seems to me that experience, courage, prestige, and good fortune all rise from individuality. Without individuality one can not usually gain much experience, and experience cannot be gained without cour- age, and from experience generally develop prestige and good fortune. But we are here most concerned with individuality — that essential qual- ity so necessary to combat the greatest business in the world — Life. Courage too, of which I shall speak further, is closely linked with in- dividuality. On every side are the enemies of individuality and mental free- dom. Custom meets us at the cradle and leaves us only at the tomb. We are pushed and dragged by countless hands along the beaten track, and our entire training can be summed up in the word-suppression. Our desire to have a thing and to do a thing is often considered as conclusive evidence that we should not have it and that we should not do it. At every turn we have run against cherubim and flaming sword guarding some entrance to the Eden of our desire. In our more or less strict adherence to conventionality — the social ethics of mankind, we sometime lose our characteristic individuality. Of course I speak not of morals, for I do believe that there, there should be that iron-bound restraint on our behaviour, for man, after all, is really a well-bred animal wearing clothes that proclaim him a civilized being. But in our adherence to conventionality, we act more like a THE SENIOR FLICKER 85 flock of sheep that follows where the ram leads than like men who are supposed to be endowed with superior intelligence. We are deceived by the white plumes dancing before our eyes ; we are blinded by the brilliance of outward show, and do not see what lies beneath. What, then, must we do to attain and retain individuality? We must examine, we must dig down below the surface for the real facts, and not be satisfied with a mere superficial scratch. We must examine, we must keep our manhood, and have the courage to follow where rea- son leads. Let the pious get together and repeat wise saws, and ex- change knowing nods, and most prophetic winks. Let the stupidly wise sit owl-like upon the dead limbs of the tree of knowledge, and solemnly hoot. Let wealth sneer, let fashion laugh, and even though respecta- bility passes by on the other side, and slander lends her tongue, and infamy shows her brand, stand up and fight — be strong, be firm in the courage of your convictions. Remember that Emerson said, “Courage is the perfect will which no terrors can shake.” Courage lends individ- uality and strength of conviction. Should we not, then, develop our will power with these essentials, as Cicero called them? We are all setting out on the vast plain called Life. We are all travelers, and not one traveler is perfectly certain that he is going in the right direction. True it is that no other plain is so well marked with guide boards, for at every turn and crossing we find them, and upon each one is written the exact direction and distance. One great trouble is, however, that these boards are all different, and the result is that most travelers are so confused that they soon lose whatever in- dividuality they may have had. Soon there comes along some one who had already traveled this plain and wants to tell the approaching traveler which is the best road to choose. “Well,” says the traveler, “allow me at least to read some of the other directions and examine a little into their claims. I wish to rely a little upon my own judgement in a matter of so great importance.” “No sir,” shouts the zealot, “that is the very thing you are not allowed to do. You must go my way without investigation, or you are as good as damned already.” “Well,” says the traveler, “if that, is so, I had better go your way.” And so most of them go along, taking the word of those who know as little as themselves. We should, we must, in spite of all injunctions calmly examine the claims of all, and as calmly reject them all. And if we take roads of our own, even though we are denounced by others as fools, we must stand up and say, “I am not afraid to take a road of my own if I feel that I am right. My mind is true to itself — it thinks, investigates, and concludes for itself.” Surely it is sublime to think that, the brain is a castle, and that within its curious bastions and winding halls, the soul, in spite of all worlds and all beings, is the supreme sovereign of itself. “To every man there openeth A way, and ways, and a way And the high soul climbs the high way THE HEX I OR FLICKER 86 And the low soul gropes the low, And in between, on the misty flats, The rest drift to and fro. But to every man there openeth A high way and a low, And every man decideth The way his sou] shall go.’ ' — Frederick Milgroom LIFE How long is life; How joyous, calm, or drear ; How filled with blind, Unconquerable fear. Its heavy pall of murk Like smoke of fog surrounds, Its suffocating depths With monsters grim abound ; Henceforth we’ll live Upon the past and magnify it A thousand times. Now is the time for the tide To go. The mists of life No longer chill For ' tis the quiet, restful hour Before our voyage so still. Mysteries are dimming; The timid throat of waking hopes Bursts into varied song. Our reverie disturbs The blessed symphony of doubt. Now rising slow o ' er distant peak Of sun-kissed hills, The seer of youth foretelling Our success, prophesies A life of wonders unsurpassed, A future warm and bright. Not unmindful of our happy past. Annah Burns THE SENIOR FLICKER 87 RETRIBUTION (Apology to II. W. Longfellow) On the shores of Gloucester parkway By the shining Big-Sea- Water Stood a caterpillar tractor, Iron tractor, squat and sturdy. Quick it tore the wall asunder Tore the wall the great stone sea-wall Tore the turf, uprooted shade-trees, Made Chaos out of beauty. Marred the bright and sunny parkway By the shining Big-Sea-Water. And with blasting all the workmen Broke the grey stone of the sea-wall Then we sighed, “0 Mariner stern, What is this which tears our parkway, Tears the green grass and the shade-trees, Mars the entrance to our city?” Stirred the ever watching figure, Of the bronze and sturdy fisher Stirred the wrathful, vengeful wheelsman Raised his head with roar of anger Roar of mingled pain and sorrow. Tossed sou ’wester to the sea winds Straightened up the crouching wheelsman Then with threatening look and gesture Laid his huge hand on the tractor On the sturdy tractor laid it With his great strong hands he grasped it Rent the squat and sturdy tractor Smote and crushed it into fragments Hurled them far into the harbor In the shining Big-Sea- Water ! Y. H. Y. THE CHINESE WAR (in several different kinds of meter) A man whom we will call Sir Austin Rowe, In Chang Fu ’s laundry-shop once chanced to go ; THE SENIOR FLICKER 88 He handed Chang a rather filthy shirt, Admonishing him to get out all the dirt. Chang smiled, and said politely, “Velly well. When you want shirteef” Sir Austin couldn’t tell. “Me give you tickee, ” This Sir Austin took, And as he left the shop, gave Chang a look, II “I bet that Chink was up to something,” S. R. said, ‘ ‘ I bet he ’s got a plot in that flat head ! ’ ’ While Chang Fu at his ironing-board was muttering Profanity too terrible for uttering. “That man, him has got something in him mind,” Chang Fu warned all friends that he could find, “When he come back for shirtee, you come in, And bringee knifee. ” Chang grinned a grin. III Before returning home, Sir Austin went, And several hours with friends of his spent. He told them Chang was under suspicion, That he wished to hold an inquisition. Six days had passed: Sir Austin and his fleet In limousines rolled down the tiny street In front of Chang’s: their liveried chauffeurs helped them out. They all were English gentlemen; some lean, some stout. IV From out his laundry window, Chang saw Sir Austin come; Quickly he seized his wash-tub, and beat a rum-te-rum. From out the neighboring houses, pig-tailed Chinamen poured; Young and old, timid and bold, a ghastly horde. Sir Austin started to arbitrate, but they would have none of his gaff, Sir Austin tried to gesticulate and Chang Fu began to laugh. “You velly fully remarked Chang Fu,” as Sir Austin grew very red, “You go ahead say what you likee say, in a minute you gonna be dead!” V Sir Austin’s English gentlemen are ready to retreat; Sir Austin’s English gentlemen have started down the street. Chang Fu just gave the signal for the Chinamen to plunge, And Chang Fu ’s Chinese gentlemen just made an awful lunge. The Chinamen, en masse, were up and at it then; But in Victoria’s Army, had been those Englishmen; In youth the pick and cream they were of the Indian Regiment, And so they turned back up the street, and at the Chinks they went. THE SENIOR FLICKER 89 VI And then in all directions, silk hats and pig-tails flew ! Sir Austin hid in his limousine ; in his laundry-shop, Chang-Fu. The battle waged right merrily amidst the dirt and grime; Both parties, all were fighting well; they had a lovely time. After the war was over, after the battle done, After each side had slaughtered the other side just for fun, Sir Austin crawled out of his hiding place, and Chang Fu came up to his side ; And so they shook hands as friends should do, and promised in peace to abide. MEMOIRS Mid Shute ’27 To-day I found my baby doll all rolled In an old blue wrap, edged with lace of gold Upon the polished floor behind a chair. For a brief time I left her lying there. And scrutinized her soiled dress curiously, So long this toy had been a part of me. Her legs were bent and queer. Her flaxen head For many years had worn a pale blue band. When I was young, I dressed her so stylishly. How coarse and clumsy she appeared to-day! At that joyful moment she became mine. She seemed to me to be the world sublime. With her I played and sewed and kept a whole house neat, Cooked countless meals for hungry dolls to eat ; Then lulled to rest dozens of weary heads, And robed my dolly for her bye-low bed. Now my toy is roughned by scars of which each one Is just a badge of loving service done. I trysted with my thoughts — the clock struck noon. Now mother would be ready for luncheon soon. Poor dolly! In haste from off the floor I snatched and put my old toy back once more Then quickly to my daily task I went Quite cheerful and, indeed, most content. A. B. ’27 TO GLOUCE3TER-BY-THE-SEA Tho I may rove the wide world o’er, From oceans east to oceans west, The foreign lands I may explore, And snow-capped mountains may contest, One spot I’ll hold close to my heart, Its memory ever dear to me. 90 THE SENIOR FLICKER Of me ’twill ever be a part, My home in Gloucester-by-the-Sea. Ah, landlocked bay and rugged crags, Your natural beauty reigns supreme. While from the deep, the fisher drags The nets in which the mackerel teem. Would I could take you where I go, To show the folk of other climes The charming scenes I’ve come to know Can never be described in rhymes. Contributed by a Citizen of Gloucester. THE TIDE OF LIFE The Tide of Life came in, And scattered grains of human sands On the jagged shores of the Sea of Life. The Tide of Life went out, And these human bits went swirling with it, To be cast upon other shores To be molded according to fate. Some humans are swept so high and firm That the Tide will never touch them. Others lie on the beach at the will of the Sea, The playthings of the Elements. These humans must forever follow The course of Life’s unresting Tide. These tireless wanderers of the world Will see, and hear, and feel — Theirs be not the joy of material wealth, But the thrill of the calling Tide, Which carries them on and ever on, Out of this striving, busy world And on to the hills, the plains, and the seas, Till the Tide of Life has ebbed. V. H. V. ’27 GLOUCESTER HARBOR IN THE MOONLIGHT ( Apology to Wordsworth) Earth has not anything to show more fair: Dull would he be of soul who could pass by A sight so touching in its majesty: This harbor now doth like a garment wear The beauty of the moonlight : silver, bare, Shi ps, spires, woods, wharves, and beaches lie THE SENIOR FLICKER 91 Open unto the stars, and to the sky; All clear and glittering in the moon-drenched air. Never did moon more beautifully steep In his first splendor, ocean, rock, or hill : Ne’er saw I, never felt a calm so deep! The river floweth at the sea ’s strong will : Dear God ! the very schooners seem asleep, And all that moonlit sea is lying still! Y. H. V. I ' VE SKIPPED MY LAST CLASS (Apology to H. W. C.) 1 ’ve skipped my last class, boys, I ’ve skipped my last class. 1 ’ve just begun to ask, boys, I’ve just begun to ask. I used to skip this one, then The cinch, the tough, the whole bunch But now I ’m sorry so much. I’ve skipped my last class. I ' ve seen some lads slide by, boys 1 ' ve seen some lads slide by. It didn’t make me sigh, boys, It didn’t make me sigh. But when I went to hunt a job And saw those guys lose every bob It made plain what I had seen before When I’d seen those lads slide by. So I’m off the cuts for aye, kid, I ' m off the cuts for aye. And if you’d seen what I did, If you ’d seen as I, Through all their jobs they quickly went, And through the door with Boss’ consent. They slid right down — far down they went, And stayed down low for aye. V. H.

Appreciation of Worrall The following sonnet was writ- ten by John K. Worrall, who by the way, has led a very strenuous life. Because of his strenuous life he is proclaimed the master of all East Gloucester lighthouse lovers. Unlike Wordsworth, who was a nature lover, Worrall is a lover of school books. Wordsworth did marry, but Worrall will no ' even look at a girl, and it is doubtful if he will ever marry. Women never enter the mind of Worrall, and this accounts for his great devotion to poetry : Down at the lighthouse by the sea, Though lonesome as it may seem. That is the only place for me. Glad was I to come and dream And sorry was I to go. For when I was there as you may see, And hating for the time to go. It was my life and jollity. Glad was I when night would come, So I could go up into the tower, To see the boats go and come, To see the lights grow dimmer, Still, that is the only place for me, For a lighthouse keeper’s daughter is she. The above lines show clearly how Worr all’s mind runs and how he used to spend his spare minutes. Miss Harris to Ken Harting : And don’t forget that the savings for a rainy day aren’t intended for a wet night. Mr. Parsons: If you speak cas- ually of a million dollars, and the alien doesn’t blink, he is Ameri- canized. Miss Harris : What is heredity ? Art Smith : Something that every father believes in until his son starts acting like an idiot. Spinney: Why does she call you maple syrup? Marty : Because I ’m such a re- fined sap. Miss Harris : The average author does his best writing after midnight. Ed. Smith : I knew a man once who did his studying after mid- night, and now the poor guy is half-witted, (a word to the wise is sufficient) Miss Wolfe: Now the cowboy’s clothing is quite different from ours. Where did he get it from ? B. Morris : Sears Roebuck ! (Will Christy Qualify) Sigh with regret for our Former friend Pond. He was more than a gent — He married a blonde.

Then the Guardhouse During his first days in camp a young recruit was the victim of so many practical jokes he doubted all men and their motives.

Meets the Deadly Sophomore. The latest yarn to tickle risibili- ties on the Berkeley campus is the fable of tpo freshman, the battle ax, and the beeveedees. The fresh- man is washing the beeveedees, the battle ax is buried, and the moral of the fable is obscure. The plot of the piece opens with Y. Chang, a Chinese bov in earnest quest of the higher education, in attendance at the Stanford-Uni- versity of California football game. Of all the yells that smote his ears, the old favorite. " Give ’em the ax, the ax. the ax ! ” stirred his curios- ity most. Tie asked a guileful sophomore the meaning of the weird war cry. The sophomore glibly explained that the Stanford battle ax was laid away, ready for use in case any Chinese freshman refused to wash a sophomore ’s underwear. The Chinese boy listened and was im- pressed. Yesterday copies of the North China Star, published in Tientsin, arrived in San Francisco, and one of them contained the fol- lowing letter from Y. Chang: ‘ ' I think you are wrong about educational advantages of Univers ity of California. Many times I have heard that a long time ago University of California belong very proper fashion. " But, however, in feud between University of California and Stam- ford College at Palo Alto, Univers- ity of California capture from war one very great ax which University of California bury on hill behind Greek Theater and many men talk that every year, second year Cali- fornia students dig up ax and chop heads off Chinese freshmen who no like wash dirty linen. " I ask you is this proper fash- ion? If University of California no use ax for chop off head of Chinese students, whv do they al- ways keep ax and yell, ' Give them ax in neck?’ ' ' I think they no use ax for chop wood, because California advertise very best climate and no use cut wood for bum. Please print this so all Chinese students be warned.” Bridge a la Callahan Lieutenant Callahan, whose name is associated with those of Colonel Work and Major White as a bridge authority, has said that his highest score was made in a game he played with three aged in- mates of the Perkins Institute for the Blind.

This minor trouble does not last long, however, and those ol us still able to play sit and wait for Bob to fin- ish dealing. Many card sharks be- lieve that the quickness of “the hand deceives the eye. ’ Callahan plays on the motto, “The weight of the fist closes the eye.” At any rate he has finished dealing — Lo ! Things go from bad to worse. Wnen the dealing is over, the bidding be- gins — The lieutenant finishes the bidding by redoubling on seven tricks. It is at about this time that the hostess raises her voice far enougn above the din to ask us if we have finished our home work. Our spokesman replies as he bravely plays the fifth ace, which Robert quickly trumps, that we finished our homework in school. We proceed with the game which at times grows so tense that one might almost hear a bomb drop. It is at such times that the first-aid kit is called into use. Callahan fights on down the home stretch and by some peculiar dexterity wins with ten tricks. Small wonder he holds the North Shore Bantam Weight Champion- ship. — Ude B.

This satirist claims any chin looks a whole lot better witn a hedge around it. Now they might look better, but what about the feeling ? P ity the poor girl who ha i to go through this experience. Smith Brothers might have gained a lot of trade by using this form of decoration, but it is certainly go- ing to spoil the faith of the young- er generation. If you have a face that only a mother can love, try camouflaging it with whiskers; otherwise leave well enough alone. Grace H. Hammond ’27 Auction Bridge One of the most important phrases of auction bridge is the in- formatory bid. Tne idea of the bid is to let your partner know what cards you hold and let him act ac- cordingly. This would be called cheating in any other card game, but so many lovely people play bridge, why perish the thought! The. following is the simplest table yet devised for telling your part- ner how you stand. A Slight know- ledge of music is required. Hum- ming a tune from “No, No, Nan- nette” indicates that you have a no-trump hand. Singing an aria from “The Jewels of Madonna” will show you are strong in dia- monds. Gently humming “Hearts and Flowers” should tell your partner you are sitting O. K. in hearts. Dig your partner in the shins to indicate strength in spades. This digging will naturally sug- gest a spade unless you happen to have a club-foot, in which case vour partner will be confused. R. M. D. WE SALUTE YOU We have been- put on earth to do our share of work, and idle- ness is a sin. Let us do something, even if we can not at once do the work we prefer. Our rightful employment will come to us, and so let us look for something to be thankful and glad over each day. If we but consider each disappointment and trouble as so much ex- perience, we shall find life is precious. Now it is time we cast aside every bitter and resentful thought we have ever had. Nothing of worth can be achieved by us in any line while our vital forces are vitiated by anger, revenge, and hatred. No one can ever harm us if we do not harm ourselves by retaliation. Let us fill our souls and minds so full of love and joy that noth- ing low can find accommodation. After doing this we shall discover ourselves immune to disaster. Sorrow, perhaps, will find us, but never misfortune. Evil cannot touch us, and blessings will follow us. May we as Masters of our Destiny succeed. A. B. ’27 THE SENIOR FLICKER 115 !
