For just that one day we were lords of the whole school, with teachers acting as guides through the labyrinth (d corridors, and no upper class men around. The very next day our regime was overthi ' own completely, and we realize in full the trials of freshmen during the rest of the month. Just as October came we began to get the most vague idea of what Avas what. The teachers seemed less terrifying, the corridors were not so endless, and the Study Hall looked less like a Chinese Puzzle. Encoui aged by such improvements, we ambitiously set out to Avrite speeches for the Roosevelt Trophy Contest. If it is taken into consideration that Ave had never fnade any sensible speeches be- fore, and that none of us AAure second Daniel Websters, Ave d‘d Aury Avell. When the day came Ave Avere represented by Elizabth Lyle, and Ave Avere Aury much relicAud to not have to worry over speeches any more. Eizabeth Lyle also became the ' freshman reporter on the Bea- con Staff for the year. NoAumber brought the football season, and we freshmen endeavor- ed to soIau the puzzle of football. To us at first it seemed a hopeless mass of flying legs and arms Avithout any purpose Avhatsoever. Grad- ually Ave began to see some i easons for the ferocious melees Ave AAut- nessed, and one fi ' cshman, John McLaughlin, saAV enough reason in it to become our only repi ' csentative on the football squad for the Avhole season, and shoAved the upper classmen that perhaps Ave did not re- semble jellyfish so strongly after all. After that, Ave really became quite sophisticated for freshmen, and managed to preserve fairly cheerful faces as we thought of mid- yeai ( ' xams. When they came, of course we got our periods mixed up, and made perfectly absurd mistakes because of the Avay our pens shook, but wh(‘u the marks came out, Ave Acere agreeablv surpiased now and then, and most of the expected death sentences did not arrive. After the Acorries of exams were over, Ave flocked to the basket- ball games. There Ave rejoiced to see some of oursehms on the sec- ond varsity team. Of these, Robert Young turned out to be captain of the Room 8 team, leader of the Freshman League. ft was a v( ry proud day for us, as might have been marked by the lofty noses and expansive chests in the balcony, Avhen our play Avas presented. iMilton Mintz, the chairman, almost forgot the upper classmen when he opened the program, but he recollected them in time to be y)olite. Sibyl Gosman sang before the plav itself in AA hich Mary Fernanc ' made n most comical and rathei inefficient mother to Arthur T ' otnejiu. especially inefficient in the eyes of the less countrified IdAvdyn Mitchell. Aithur probably Avas aAvare only of her dreadful serving AN’hen his new suit ripped as he nmde a speech in the RiAmrdale Town Tfall in front of William Blanchard, the judge, Alice Rose and THE SENIOR FLICKER 55 Barbara Stanwood, two who aided Arthur in entertaining Riverdale, and Eleanor Slafsky, president of a great number of associations. Spring was gladly announced with the baseball season, and we were all sure that Geno Catalini would develop into a real Casey or Babe Ruth in his senior year. ‘Gjew” Mountain and Barnard Mc- Phail did not win positions on the varsity team, but showed a great deal of promise as to what they might be as pitchers some day. The finals loomed ahead of us like the ghost of mid year exams come back to torment us for neglecting our homework. In the finals we freshmen deserved the respect of upper classmen for the nom chalant way in which we went through those days. We answered what we knew, and what we did not know, also. We must have oc- casionally guessed almost as well as- seniors do, at least so our marks seemed to show. No more homework in any study was forthcoming, and we spent our time in dreaming of the next year when we should receive as a reward for our patience, faith, and perseverance of our firs! year, the privilege of at last lording it over someone even though they will be only our successors as freshmen.

Criven: Class of 1932 in G. H. S. To Prove: Class of 1932 is making a record for itself. 1. In 1929 did we make a name for ourselves? I should say so? How? Well after overcoming the greenness which is a heritage to all freshmen, we made a good start by showing our ability in sports. There was strenuous com- petition betAveen both boys and girls in basketl)all. Our efforts Avere not in vain for Ave earned a little respect. 2 . At Christmas the girls in Study Hall shoAved how to throw a good party. After the ex- change of gifts, Dorothy Demos and Honora Shea entertained on the piano. 3. Eveiyone must agree that Anna Kline made ’em sit up and take notice when she spoke “Tour Purpose” in the Roosevelt Trophy Contest. 4. Our tAvo literary lights were none otlio ' than Mary MacDonald and Ikirbara Smith, and they both made a good showing. Of course, they Avould need assistants in the future, but no one worried a bit, for after Ave Avent through a stiff period of training under Miss Harris, all realized that the Bea- con would never suffer from the lack of ncAv material. 1.

Proof: Statements Reasons THE SENTOE FLICKER 57 5. Then we had a real chance to show off this time on t he stage. We presented the biggest sen- sation on the stage that year, The Show Actress. Gordon Coffin was chairman, and after a clever rep- resentation of Nize Baby by Doris ' Leavitt, and dancing by Virginia Doucette, the big performance was staged. The cast: Kathryn Ross, June Ehler, Bettina Koper, Doris Tucker, Gardner Johnson, Jacob Davis, and Wilfred Kinger. The play surely was a success. 6. At the end of the year Kuth Harris and Jacob Davis were pre- j sented with Sawyer Medals which ; certainly they both deserved. 7. Then we became sophomores and began to feel important The boys sallied forth in uniforms in various stages of misfit, and William Brown, Donald Burn- ham, Bussell Martin and Melvin Cardos went out for football. Give them time and they are sure to make good. 8. The band got its share of sophomores, and doesn’t seem to have suffered any. I 9. After we learned the ropes, our representation on the Beacon staff increased. Gordon Coffin, I Barbara Smith, Mary MacDonahl, ; Dorothy Kendrick were all there, I and the Beacon continued to go over strong. 10. When the Roosevelt Trophv Contest came around Don ' s Tucker and Jacob Davis took an active part. 11. In basketball the girls’ team, under Dorothy Demos, came out at the top. 12. Class of 1932 is making a record for itself. 5. The Show Actress forced com- plimentary remarks even from the seniors. 6. Their names were never miss- ing from the Honor Roll. 7. Weren’t all football stars subs once? 8. Both band concerts have been huge successes. 9. Why shouldn’t it? 10. That was one of the best club periods of the year and the sopho- mores did much to make it so. 11. They beat the Juniors and thereby won the championship. 12. By above reasoning.

Comes vacation, and in the natural order of events, follows a nev p chool year, 1929-30. Synonymous with the dawn of this year of learning, comes the inauguration of the class of 1931 as upp r classmen, g juniors. ACT III e Scene : Same as in Act II.

Action: d Once again ye goode olde ‘ " 31” dashed madlv through the giant nortals of Gloucester High, looking for new worlds to conquer. And I do they? And how! The action starts off with a bang, with the appointment of the I greatest number of juniors ever on the Beacon staff, they being Ellen I Johnson, Linda Gustafson. Lillia]i Kallio, Barbara Dagle, Aino Yrjola Paul Diggins, Hugh Parkhurst, Harold Bell, Rmhard Burns, Richard Robinson and James Goodwin. Pete Burns, staff artist, wins the co- veted assignment of cover designing. M ' any juniors are also ap- pointed to the Service Club roster. After the class is established, football begins, and ‘ 31” con- tributes Cob Enos, Jim Woodbury, Barley Pratt, Heck Eklund, Sim Steele, Dan Diggins, Rajah Lee, Larry Capillo, Ham B ggs, and Pete Ktistes, all good players. But honors are not confined to the field alone. Mildred Burnham adds one more trophy to C31’s” laurels bv capturing the RooseveP I Trophy, being the first speaker to dispute the seniors’ possession of j d for many years. ; While the gladiators are finishing one of the greatest football i .seasons in the school’s hdtory, the action shifts to the Armory, where twenty-odd cadets aT e engaged in a competdlve drill. At the con- clusion of the drill, the first award goes to a senior, but the other three go to the juniors, namely Eldon Webber, Robert Wolf, and Fred Kleimola.

ROBINSON ’31 THE SENIOR ELICKER 61 History of the Class of 1930 Sheltered from the icy blast of the Antarctic wind by a huge tarpaulin, the airplane rested securely, its landing gear half-buried in the snow. Clouds of sleet and snow swirled madly about the looming fuselage and hammered the wings mercilessly. Within the plane two-furclad figures conversed. One was Bri- gadier-General Russell Moore of the United States Army, and the other was his adjutant. Major Louis McEachern. ‘‘How is the poor divil nowU’ the General asked. “He’s still raving. Delirium from hunger, you know. It’s lucky for him that the blizzard forced us down here, or he’d be out of luck. A fool stunt — trying to walk to the Pole and back.’’ “Yes, but he’s used to fool stunts.” “And you ought to hear him rave. Said he was queen of the May and that sort of stuff. He’s out of his mind, positively nutty.’ ' “Ah, just like old times. Hats he eaten anything yet?” “No, but I think he’ll take something now. He sure must be hun- gry.” “Well, let’s see what we can do for the poor chap.” They passed from the main compartment into one of the smaller sleeping cabins. In one corner lay an emaciated figure swathed in fur robes, and jabbering insanely. “Open a can of the old stand-by,” said the General, “and fry a little on the oil-stove. . . .He hasn’t changed a bit since I knew him back at Gloucester High.” Abruptly the man on the bed stopped talking and half raised him- self on one elbow. The General hurried to his side. “Don’t you know me, old fellow?” the General asked. The man looked him in the eyes searchingly, then rubbed his eyes as if trying to lift an unseen veil. “You’re — you’re Moore, aren’t you?” he said querulou sly. “Yes, I am. And you’re Gappy Clark, the idol of the boys and the hero of the girls.” “Yes, yes, I was.” A ' strange gleam came into Colonel Clark’s eyes. “And I can still remember the old days. ...What is that I smell?” “A treat for you — some of Gorton’s Original and Genuine Ready- To-Fry Codfish Cakes, prepared by your admirer, Louie McEachern.” A bewhi«kered individual appeared in the doorway. “Just like old times. Remember when we were freshmen at Glou- cester High?. ...” “Wait a minute, Colonel,” said the newcomer, “I’ve just picked up New York on the radio, and they want you to broadcast your story.” “Who is this?” Colonel Clark asked, turning to General Moore, “Is it Rip Van Winkle, or George Bernard Shaw?” “Neither. It’s your old friend. Bob Lufkin — now Colonel Luf- kin.” 62 THE SEXIOH FLICKER “Horo,” said Ijiifkin, producing a portable microphone, ' ' just say a few Avords to your friends of the radio audience.” bolonel Clark brought forth a sheaf of neatly typewritten papers from one of his pockets. “1 say,” the (lenei ' al said, " have you got the speech all written?” " Of course,” Colonel Clark replied, " What do you think I was doing all this time in the igloo?” " New York’s ready,” said Lufkin, " go ahead.” Freshman Year " 111 September of 1926 (Colonel Clark began) Gloucester High School was honored by the timely arrival of a large group of super- intelligent beings who were later to prove their prowess in all fields of ' Scholastic, social, military, and athletic endeavor. They imme- diately adjusted themselves to the routine, regulations, customs, and traditions of the school with extraordinarily nonchalant ease, and soon they Avere recognized as full-fiedged freshmen. " Early in the year the freshmen began to Avin laurels for them- selves. For instance, Madeline Davis and Bill Clark made their debut as orators in the annual Roosevelt Trophy Contest, which was held in November in the City Hall auditorium. Of course, everyone realized that one of them had won the competition, but naturally the judges Avoulcl not award the decision to a mere freshman. " A number of ambitious young men elected drill in hopes of se- curing military honors in the future. They easily passed the recruit stage, and became experienced veterans within a short time. " The football squad acquired a valuable asset in the person of .Jazz .Mcl uiughlin, Avho gave an excellent perfoi ' mance on the gridiron and endured an arduous season Avith great fortitude. " Three fine fellows: Russie Davis, Bill Clark, and Jug-head Har- ris received great acclaim on the basket ball court. Because of their remarkable abilit y iu this line, these three later made the high school team. " ToAvards the middle of the term, came the Annual Prize-Speak- ing contest in which Muriel Bradley, Madeline Davis, and Louie Mc- Eachern, the Mighty Atom (That’s you, Angus!) participated. I can’t remember just what the results were, but we made a splendid showing, as usual. " The croAvning achievement of the year was the presentation of that startling dramatic production. Pa’s New Housekeeper; at last the true ability of the freshmen became evident. The characters Avere Prad Frost, Roy Griffin, Maggie Firth, Bee Markland, and Jim Ab- bott. ' idiis event marked the beginning of the remarkable dramatic -areer of the Class of 1960. " The Avhole school was astounded when it Avas announced that Ike Nutton and -Jeke Sabino had been chosen as freshman reporters on the Beacon staff. This Avas probably the reason why the Beacon i)Cgan to improAU so rax)idly. " Although the freshmen had gone through the baptism of fire and having to write paragraphs in English, no really great literature THE SENIOR FLICKER 63 had been turned out as yet. However, Grace Gavin soon displayed her literary talent by writing a prize-winning essay on the life of Koosevelt, bringing the freshnien still more attention. ‘‘Finally as a most fitting climax to oiir first: hectic year in Gloucester High, the freshmen went into a frenzy of enthusiastic ap- plause when Helen Lane and Art King were proclaimed the winners of the Sawyer Medals.” Lufkin interrupted Colonel Clark at this point, “Stop a minute, they want to make local announcements.” “Fine,” said Colonel Clark, “that will give me a chance to try some of those fishcakes. Are they done yet, Angus?” “Exactly,” said Major M’cEachern, tasting one of the cakes, “here, try one of these.” Colonel Lufkin looked up from his receiving set. “New York’s ready. Go on with the speech.” Sophomore Year “Ah (Colonel Clark resumed) these fish-cakes are simply de- licious — which reminds me of my sophomore year at Gloucester High School ‘ ‘ When we returned to school after the summer vacation, we were somewhat surprised to notice that a singular change in atmosphere had taken place. Having become accustomed to occupying the center of the stage, we were nonplussed to discover that the new freshman class was receiving more attention than we, from both the teachers and the student body. Seniors paid little attention to us, except, perhaps, at drill — for this was our first year in uniform. Consequently our ac- complishments, while not lacking in merit, were less spectacular than those of our freshman year. “Nevertheless, we managed to snatch the torch of public acclaim from the clutching fi’ngers of the freshmen in the Roosevelt Trophy Speaking Contest. Two silver-tongued sophomores, Maggie Firth and Clara Rutchik gave a realistic imitation of two orators spellbind- ing the audience with flowery phrases and Avitty Avords. They fooled everybody but the judges. Now a number of brilliant lads — brilliant in athletics, that is to say — started signing up for the teams. Apparently the sophomores were not yet sold on the idea of joining the football team, but Jazz McLaughlin courageously resumed his position in the squad and show- ed us some more good Avork. Our classmates on the basket ball team made a fine showing in their Avell-fiitting uniforms, rendering inval- uable assistance to the hard-pressed iseniors and juniors. The base- ball team soon showed great iniproA ement after Paul Bohan and Russ Davis took up the quarrel with the foe for the Class of 1930. And now we come to the musicians ! It presently became appar- ent that Gloucester High Avas to produce a large crop of Sousas, Pry- ors, and Whitmans, because six Avould-be musicians : Lolly Fraga, Ike Nutton, Dick Wagner, Rodger Boynton, Dick Hoyt, and Gus Hag 64 THE SENIOB FLICKER stroin appeared on the scene and demanded instruction in the mys- teries of wind-instruments. They had the wind; Mr. Hazel, the in- struments. “The cat-killin«‘ curiosity of the entire ischool was satisfied when the Beacon staff aequii ' ed two exceedingly capable reporters, Helen bane and Ike Nutton. The school, except the sophomores, of course, then went back to sleep. “What woke the school from its deep slumber to pay homage to the great was the fact that Bee Myer and Bob Lufkin (That’s ycu, Lolonel!) were presented with the Sawyer Medals.” “Wait a minute, Colonel Clark,” said Lufkin. “Remember that the radio stations have to make their local announcements.” “How is my speech going? Does it sound all right?” “ hixcellent,” said Lufkin, “that part about my winning the Saw- yer Medal was probably the best part so far.” Colonel Clark yawned “Bologna and liverwurst, I was thinking of leaving you out. Got any more Ready-to-Fry, Louie?” “Sure,” the Major replied, “here’s some more.” “All set with New York,” said Lufkin. “Go on with that speech.” Junior Year “These Lshcakes (Colonel Clark went on) are simply luscious. I hope that my friends of the radio audience will try some of these marvelous Original and Genuine Ready-To-Fry Codfish Cakes some- time. But I must get on with my speech. . . . “You know, when I think of the Class of 1930, I am always re- minded of a story I once heard about one of those Swisis, shammies or chamoises, which are always leaping from one high crag to a still higher one. The class of 1930, now juniors, continued their pursuit of fame and knowledge much in the same style that shamoi — cham- my — that Swiss animal does. As I and many others have said time and time again, a class as versatile as the Class of 1930 is as rare as, if not rarer than, a day in June. In short, we are superb. “In the Roosevelt Contest we entered two juniors who were not without a bit of fame as speakers: Madeline Davis and Maggie Firth. Theii speeches far surpassed any ever delivered from the rostrum of th( ' , (Jity Hall. The judges, however, adhered to the convent ' onal pol- icy of giving the Trophy to one of the senior contestants, although all knew that one of the juniors had won. “In athletics many new and old names appeared: Bohan, Mc- Laughlin, Hagstrom, Russ Davis, Bierce, Aylward, and a host of others. Juniors were the keynote throughout the year in athletics, as w(?ll as in other fields. In football it was the juniors who made touch- downs and kicked goals; in basket ball it was the juniors who saved the seniors from ruin by skillful passing, guarding, and scoring; in baseball it was the juniors who kept the men in the outfield busy try- ing unavailingly to catch liners. “Juniors assumed a large part in Beacon activities, for by this THE SENIOR ELICKER 65 year we had secured three associate editors; Buzzy Day, Madeline Davis, and Bob Lufkin (There you are again, Colonel!) ; besides these, we had three reporters, Kay Dennen, Sarah Ellen Class, and Priscil- la Darcy. This admirable sextet took hold of things in a masterly manner, and practically ran the Beacon, although the seniors were given the credit, as usual. ‘Mn military matters we were displaying our prowess to a high degree. We had many juniors as sergeants and corporals. Many juniors took their places in the prize squads, and through the winter practiced their antics mechanically until they were as near perfection as possible. As a result of this thorough training and inherent mil- itary spirit, the squads gave the best drill in the history of the bat- talion at the Presentation Drill at the Armory. None could compare with or hold a candle to the drill given by the squad led by ME, Ser- geant Raymond Clark. Even Colonel Hathaway said that he had never seen a squad so good as mine, despite the fact that the other squads he had seen were pretty good, under the leadership of Jug- head Harris, Musty Moore, (That’s you General!) and Pineapple Gul- liver, all of whom were sergeants. By the way, I forgot to say that the juniors in my squad were Brad Frost, Alden Whitmarsh, Lee Web- ber, and Art King, if you insist on having him in the squad. ‘‘As I have said, in our freshman year we began our dramatic career. In our junior year we again turned to the god of drama or goddess, whichever the case may be, and after a lengthy conference with that worth deity we decided to present the play entitled Love sund Tea for the entertainment of the student body and for the good of the world at large. For this, we selected our actors with the greatest of care, and after we had picked the best, we discovered we had in the cast such unique artists as Sarah Ellen Glass, Madeline Davis, Gerry Goldthwaite, Madeleine Phillips, Ella Mountain, He’.en Wonson, Brad Frost, and Gene Coffin, the Answer to a Maiden’s Prayer. “In Gloucester High School there are no political parties, which is a source of great disappointment to Miss Wolfe. In the middle of the junior year occurred an election that we will remember longer than any described in Fish’s History of America. There were no parties- except for the Reprobate and Demoniac parties which take ' part in every election as a matter of principle ; there were no issues except for that of bettering the school. Just as everyone expected, Jim Abbott was elected president; Russ Davis, vice-president; Paul Oakley treasurer; and Gerry Goldthwaite, secretary. “In a series of class meetings we decided the all-important ques- tions of rings, dues, and the rest. Dues was the hardest question to decide, of course. After much heated debate pro and con we decided in favor of dues. “I must have forgotten to mention the parts played by the girls in their various fiestas, by which I mean the gym meets. Of course, this is but one of the minor doings of the Class of 1930. The girls did pretty well in every gym meet held, but I never could see anything in those gala events 67 ) THE SENIOR FLICKER “But now we eoiiie to souiething that is really important; i. e. ; viz; and to wit: h ' leld Day. First conies the Haskell medal, which was won by Sergeant Musty Moore (There you are again General!). Then there wore the shakers “That reminds me that 1 forgot to make some mention of the Bachelors’ Club. This club has always been one of the traditional institutions of Gloucester High. From time immemorial — as the trite saying goes — the masterly sex has formed the club at the beginning ot each school year, and up to the junior year practically all of the J930 class have been members of that great brotherhood. During the junior year, however, one of the girls, after turning over the lamen- Tabie situation in her mind, aroused the ire of the boys by calling the elub the Bacilus Club, which is really not a half bad pun. The boys retaliated lamely by calling their tormentors the Fear Sex, whereupon hostilities commenced for good. After the never-to-be forgotten war was over, and peace was restored, the Ba.chelois’ Club was abandoned, except for one or two juniors and a few underclassmen. “When Bresentation Day arrived once more, we walked off with nearly every honor in sight. The greatest event was the announce- ment that Gerry Goldthwaite and Dick Hoyt had won the Sawwer Medals. There Avere also a great number of other aAvards : the Har- vard Club book prize, Avon by Paul Oakley; the Women’s Club aAvard, won by Gerry GoldtliAvaite ; the French award, Avon by Helen Lane ; and other minor aAvards too numerous to Menticn. At this time avc bade farewell to our good friend. Colonel Hath- aAvay, avIio had been Avith us for so many years. Before going, he entertained the audience at club period by telling an incredible story, to say the least. Then he announced that the major of the battalion next year Avas to be Musty Moore (Take the boAV, General), and the two captains Avere to be Cappy Clark of Company A — That’s me speaking — and itob Harris of Company B, though 1 don’t see Avhat he did to become captain.” “Here” inter i-upted General Moore, “that’s enough of knock- ing Harris. Next thing I knoAv you’ll be knocking me or Lufkin.” “Shut up, you tAvo,” said Lufkin, “I’m trying to make the sta- tion break.” “And another thing,” Moore Avent on, ignoring Lufkin, “you for- got to call him .Jug-hcad.” “That’s nothing. J’ll call him that when I tell about the butter- cups.” “If you do that, I’ll — ” “XcAv York’s all set,” said Lufkin. “Get going.” “Yeah, dust hand rri(‘ some more of those fishcakes, Angus.” Senior Year “After the vacations, Ave came back in high spirits for our last year within the mouldy Avails of Gloucester High. Our last year — Three years crammed Avith friendship, pleasure, surprises, and work, THE SENIOR FLICKER 67 had ‘Hempus fugited” away, leaving ' us cherishing those fond mem- ories that ' ' flash upon that inward eye” wishing that we could do it all again. The song is ended, but th melody lingers on " Arrived at the school for t his, our last triiunphant year, we found that a great upheaval had occured during our absence and that, while many familiar faces still remained, drastic changes had taken place. I refer, of course, to the new teachers, especially Miss Bick- ley, who had come to us across an ocean as turbulent and unstable as the New York stock market. She won the hearts of every man jack of us with her charming smile and intriguing accent — another British conquest. " We settled down immediately to work. Work, and we got on the honor roll; work, and we joined the Roosevelt Club; work, work, and work, and we won admiring praise from the teachers and envious glances from the underclassmen. " While drill is most assuredly work, and hard work at that, it is different from studying, so I make a new paragraph. We soon became acquainted with Colonel Dalton and rapidly learned to recog- nize from a distance in time to come to attention. Colonel Dalton, by the way, is the new P. M. S. T. He has seen a good deal of service and has traveled extensively. He won the hearts of the girls without an effort. He is truly an exceptional man. After an accurate sur- vey and careful deliberation on the subject of drill, Colonel Dalton decided to form a new company, subsequently to be known as Com- pany C. After Company C was formed, it was the laughing stock of the battalion, but the laugh was on the other stock when C won the honor flag for four successive months, thanks to the Colonel’s diligent training. " Of maximum interest to the feminine portion of the class was the roster of the battalion. As I have previously stated, I was Cap- tain of Company A, the General here was major. Jug Head Harris, of buttercup fame. Captain of B Company, and Louis Gulliver, ad- jutant. Our friend Colonel Lufkin was the Captain of Company C . As for the rest, Arthur King, Bob McLaughlin, Jim Abbott, Gene Cof- fin, Maro Hammond, Walden Anderson, Francis Bailey, Brad Fros , Ed O’Maley, Alden Whitmarsh, Lee Webber, Digger Betts, and Char- lie Boardman were lieutenants. " Many of the seniors became members of the various clubs of the school. The Roosevelt club elected Alden Whitmarsh, president ; Louis Gulliver, vice-president; Evelyn Gronblad, secretary; Ch rlie Boardman, treasurer; Marg Firth, program chairman; and Gene Cof- fin, publicity manager. L’Amicale Frangais chose for its president, Gerry Goldthwaite ; Der Deutsche Verein, May Thompson; El Circulo Espanol, Priscilla Biggs, and the Service Club, Priscilla Darcy. Each of the clubs, under the leadership of seniors and faculty, had a suc- cessful year. " Once again, confi ' dent of victory, we entered the Roosevelt Con- test. We had chosen to represent the class that seasoned speake ■, Marg Firth. In spit of many handicaps, she gave an excellent speech. THE SENIOR FLICKER 6S Truly Ave men say that there Avas no disgrace being defeated by such ■ a brdliaiit junior as iMildred Burnhang and 1 am sure that Dick Par- g sons, it that Avorthy felloAV is listening in to this little speecn, Avill I heartily agree Avith me. “With your permission, I Avill tell you something of our work | connected Avith the Beacon, Avhich is probably the most entertaining I magazine printed. The staft ' Avas the most efficient and versatile in I the history of the Beacon, for Ave had secured a corps of capital writ- I ers and artists. Oene Coffin Avas chosen editor-in-chief, and he per- formed a noble piece of work. If the good man is listening in noAv, , 1 AAumt to thank him personally for doing such a thorough job. His ■ two tireless assistants were Helen Lane and Bob Lufkin. (Don’t Clap, Colonel!) . Then came the three managers: Madeleine Phillips, | Dick Parsons, and Waldon Anderson, a lovable chap, to be sure. Next AA’ere a host of editors, Madeline Kane, to Avhom 1 OAve much of my material; Sarah Ellen Glass a charming colleen; Wyn Tuck, artist; and Buzzy Day, a sound egg. Finally come the reporters: Priscilla Darcy and Kay Dennen, a pleasant pair of cherubim; Louis Mac- Eachern, (Boav, Angus!), and Oscar Vinje, Avho AAU ' ote much of the finest literature aa ' c printed. “It is no exaggeration to say that the athletic teams of 1930 Avere by far the best for many years. Great credit should be given to Gus Hagstrom and liussie Davis, the captains of the baseball and basketball teams, respectKely. Both Avere three-letter men. “Park had decided that year to use a ucav method in football, that of having tAvo captains. They AA ere Paul Bohan, quarter back, and Jazz MacLaughlin, tackle. Other nieml)eis of the team Avere Kut Dennis, Kussie Davis,, Gus Hagstrom, Dice O’Neil, Bill StcAvart, Musty Moore, Ifrad Fi-ost, and Alden Whitmaish, manager. The team Avent through the season Avith but one defeat. Worthy of special mention was the victory for the hVst time in twelve yeais over Beverly and that ov( r Amesbury on Thanksgiving Day. In I ' ccognition of their accom- plishments, the boys Avere given a banquet by the business men of the city and i)resented Avith hats and SAA eaters. “Noav for basketball! This team, six members of Avhich were seniors, played seventeen games and lost but tAVo. This record had never been equalled by any Gloucester team. On the squad Avere Russ , Davis, the captain, Gus Hagstrom, Jug-head Harris, Dice O’NeT, Har-iy Bierc ' c , Musty Mooia (That’s our friend the genei ' al, here) and Art King, the capable manager. “Many of the members of the bascLall team Avere seniors.

THE SENIOR FLICKER 69 the Armory. Colonel Dalton congratnlated him personally, and George was so touched that he had to turn away to keep back the tears. “Now I come to that long-aAvaited event, the senior play. Na- turally, that exuberant child, Gene Coffin, we chose for the title role. Even more naturally, Madeline Kane was chosen as heroine, the be- witching Stinky Davis as sheriff, and that magnanimous man, Louie MacEachern as villain. The brawny males produced firearms most promiscuously and blazed carelessly away at each other, while th " captivating heroine looked on amused. Gene, however, made the most noise both with his. cannon and with his mouth, so he won the heart of the heroine with as little effort as he had won those of the rest of the i senior girls. ■ “After this, things began to happen more rapidly. Seniors work- ed, seniors played, seniors won honors, and seniors fell in love with themselves, with one another, and with underclassmen. Many brave ; boys whose names are now well-known in all circles, succumbed to the ' wiles and devices of the girls; or perhaps it was vice versa. I “Days passed faster, the clock began to speed up. The Senior So- cial came and went, a rollicking evening of joy and goodfellowship. I Presentation arrived with prize drilling. Grand March, and dancing. Clul) periods fidl of entertainment and instruction pas ' sed rapidly. Beacons were issued. Parties were thrown. Our engagement books I were (or would have been) well filled. “One social event, however, merits special attention, the Roose- velt Club Teas. When Miss Wolfe first suggested them to the learned of the class, the boys nearly refused to attend. Although the other members of the Club became a little worried about the protestations, the teas, formal though they Avere, Avere notably successful. “The climax of any year is the appearance of the Flicker. To publish ours, a remarkably capable staff Avas selected. For Aveeks ])efore the magazine Avas issued, seniors were to be seen rushing madly about searching for the rest of their various committees. At last, however, the work was completed, and the harassed writers could rest upon their laurels. “Thus Ave brought to its close our career in Gloucester High. ' Ours Avas one of the biggest, busiest, most A ersatile, most enterprisuig and altogether one of the greatest classes that ever attended that fa- 1 mous institution of learning.” I Colonel Clark paused for breath, then resumed: “Noav I haAm been telling you all this as a sort of background for Avhat is to folloAV. This ha:s been so much preliminary, but noAV I ar- i rive at the really important part — my trip to the Pole.

Just ‘iiA ' e me a dozen cases or so of the Original and Genuine Keady-To-Fry Codfish Cakes, and I’ll be pushing off.

This projectile, traveling at a terrific rate of speed, soon disappeared into the bine cosmos. Three days thence a small notice appeared in the Social Chatter Colimin of the G. D. Times to the effect that George Davis had been missing from his nsnal environs. One afternoon in the latter part of May, Francis Bailey and Ger- aldine Goldthwaite were playing a round of golf, when a sudden thunderstorm burst. Gerry, being rather superstitious, (tiie result of four years of J atin) Avondered if Jupiter were jealous. Accordingly she was about to knock ITancis over the head with her mashie-niblick and offer him up to the gods as a sacrifice, when the sun shone through the clouds and created a magnificent rainbow, whose end fell in a sand-trap just ahead of her. Miss Goldthwaite stood amazed anl cried — “My dream! Francis!” She continued, “East night I dreamt of George Davi s riding a thundercloud and sliding down rainbows! This is an omen!” She ran to the sand-trap and discovered there, a scroll tied Avith a pink necktie. With trembling fingers she opened it and read this message : “Dear Folks, “After much traveling, have discovered neAv planet-stop-Suggest that Class of ’30 found new colony here-stop-SAvell place-stop-Longi- tude-47° f)9’ 23” 19’” Jjatitude 99° 60’ 54” 35’” (Lucky I had my logarithm table along, eh ?)-stop-Hurry-Come Quick-stop.

April 32: “ — And when I peeked in the window that night, it was a scene of great revelry that I witnessed. “I heard ethereal strains of music wafting from a corner of the enormous ballroom where Orpheus, God of Music, Nutton), was presiding with his satyrs — (Roger Boynton, Martha Lehtinen, Anna Stuart, Donald Wilson, Reggie Stuart). “I saw Pan, Woodland God, (Bob Harris) sulking under a palm tree and viciously tearing apart a wreath of buttercups because he couldn’t play in the orchestra. Circe, Enchantress, (Genevieve Con- nors) was vainly trying to console him. Cavorting madly in the mid- dle of the fioor were Jason (Waldon Anderson) and Medea (Margaret Firth) who had helped Jason to win the Golden Fleece, and who, it is rumored was his fiancee. The three Graces, promoters of good will and harmony, (Grace Allen, Geraldine Havner and Genevieve Doug- las) wandered about graciously performing their duties as hostesses. Robert Lufkin (Narcissus) was pining away under the table for his left-behind lady love. “Hymen, God of Marriage, (Henry Rosen) benevolent and beam- ing, was being fed figs, dates, and grapes by three attentive sirens (Harriet Connolly, Isabelle Powers, and Rose Pedronie), while Mor- pheus, God of Sleep, (Gus Hagstrom) was dozing peacefully on a large red divan. “In a far corner Aeolus, Goddess of the Winds (Mary Baptiste) expounded forcefully to a group of Fauns, half-men and half-goats, niobert Balcome, Robert Courant, Richard Graham, Frederick Dou- cette), whose leader — Willard Poland — was smiling effusively at the modest Vestal Virgin, (Eleanor Olson). “Pluto, God of the Underworld, (Norman ‘Rip’ Hannibal), while leaning from a window, was surrounded by a bevy of beautiful Bacchantes (followers of Bacchus who indulged in great revelry — Dorothea Cotien, Eleanor Johnson, Catherine McEachern, and Ruth THE SENIOR FLICKER 83 Compliments of GLOUCESTER GAS LIGHT COMPANY M E MCEN ERNE’S ORCHESTRA a r GLOUCESTER, MASS. c n FLOWERS FOR ALL OCCASIONS Landscape Gardening, Forestry CORLISS BROS., INC.

And, could it be another but Iris, God of Rainbow, (Maro Hammond) who was entertaining his rainbow nymphs (Ruth Johnson, Charlotte Semple, Madeline Phillips, Agnes Carlson, May Curtis) by the play of lights on his brilliantly lined neck-tie. “Paris, God of Flirtation, (Bnzzy Day) started up wild with jealousy, when he saw Pandora, Goddess of Mischief (Rita DeMond), sail in with Neptune, God of the Sea (Louis Gulliver), whose chilly glance froze Bnzzy ’s ardor. Behind them drifted a retinue of mer- maids and sirens (Charlotte Alphen, Melenia Brenha, Ethel Brown, Eva Feldman, Alice Wheeler) “The lotus-eaters, people whose food caused forgetfulness of the past, (Genevieve Gibbs, William Cutting, Charles Fosberry, Eleanor Katz, Edward O’Maley, Eleanor Rodgers) were quarreling over the pnnch-bowd. “Suddenly, a great Imbbiil) arose near the door. The Amazons, a band of nnnsiially war-like women, led by Antiope (Beatrice Myer) strode masterfully into the room — Anna French, Grace Hartnng, Elea- nor P nrke, and Grace Hadley.

ROGERS, Jeweler Optician — Watch Repairing 110 THE SENIOR FLICKER i CLASS POEM TRUTH The lioary Sage dipped i eii in ink And bent again to write, And Avords of wisdom freely flowed, And from them shone a Light — The pure, white Light that ever shines, At times a little spark, That never dies, bnt hames again, And Truth dispels the dark. A noisy knock npon the door, And waiting not for leave, A lusty Youth strode in apace And j)lucked the Sage’s sleeve. And as- the Sage turned from his work And saw the eager lad. He placed his hands upon the page. And then his face grew sad. ‘‘Oh tell me, father, what thou dost,” The sturdy Youth implored, “What noble words, what lofty themes. What thoughts dost thou record? Now come, good father, lift thine hands. Ay, lift them from the page. That I may see, that I may knoAV — Oh hear me, learned Sage.” i The Sage peered at the earnest face. Then tuiTied his head away ; In isilence sat, but when he sj oke. He answered simply, “Nay. The way is dark and very long That leadeth to the Truth, But each must walk his Avay alone — Thou too, 0 goodly Youth.” So when we venture foi ' th to strive And leave all else behind; To seek impatiently until At last the Timth we find. We’ll find not Truth in elocpience Nor books upon the shelves. But Avhen we find it — and we Avill — We’ll find it in ourselves.

Other classes have preceeded you — classes that have been friendly, warm- hearted, brilliant, — classes that have made a permanent place for themselves in the heart of one who as advisor to the Flicker, comes of necessity into close contact with many seniors. But to you I would say: Never have I been privileged to know a group so thoroughly unified in friendliness, cooperation, conscienciousness, appreciative- ness, dependability. May you remain as thoroughly unspoiled and delightful as you now are. It has been a real joy to work with you and for you. “To those who know you not, no words can paint.
