— THE 1930 PICKOUT — HAROLD LAWRENCE PRESTON Wakefield, Massachusetts T. S. A. 1 Class Football 1, 2 Class Basketball 1, 2 ' Sam " " Duckie " Baseball 1, 2 A. S. M. E. 2, 3, 4 Coop 3, 4 Four years ago, on a September morn, there was heard a tremendous rattling and firing in the vicin- ity of Fair L. T. I. It was a Ford piloted by none other than the pride of Wakefield, especially the fair sex, our Sammy. He wasn ' t here more than a few days before he won everyone ' s heart through his good-nature and zealous way of aiding everyone. His personality radiated outside of the school walls into the hearts of the fair sex, especially of " Petite France " . To establish himself with the women, he entered the ring, and challenged all his rivals, thus establishing undisputed claims as Lord over Lowell ' s Fairest. For two years he stayed at the " Y " and kept its inmates busy answering his business calls. By third year he had established such a " rep " that he actual- ly parked his hat at five difl erent places. Wishing to lead a more quiet life, and tend to his studies for mind you, Sammy was a very studious and ambitious young man, he came back on his fourth year disguised by means of a " bush over h is upper lip " , took a room at the " Y " and severed all social connections. Alas, his ardor for Terpsi- chorean places led him to Boston on week-ends. There he finally met his match, and transferred all his affection to one. Thus he reopened the market for the fair sex, which he had kept cornered for so long. All in all, Sammy — carry forth into the business world your assets, and you will meet half-way success awaiting you. 50

— THE 1930 PICKOUT — RICH X R D O M E R P E R O Monson, Massachusetts on " Dick " Class Football 1 Class Basketball 1, 2 A. S. M. E. 2, 3 Assistant Instructor 3 It was a bright day when Dick strolled onto Textile ' s campus, humming the class song of Mon- son High. At first he w as firm in the upholding of the En- gineering Course, but by the end of the second year he was heard to mutter, " A change ' s the thing, " and so, a change it was. He forsook the Engineering Course to major in the art of converting " a loose fiberous material, (by common consent called wool), into a continuous twisted strand called yarn, and invaded the wool department in the guise of as- sistant instructor. The spirit of change swept him yet further. He abandoned his room at Shaw ' s to aid Jones and Carleton in founding an invincible " back room gang " at the O Pi house. He became a very active member of the instructing staff of the " Blue Room " where his wealth of experiences made him a favorite. Dick had a weakness for night school and to date, no one has been able to determine why it usually required between two and three hours for him to co ' er the distance between the school and the house. However, when it was information on woolen or worsted manufacturing that was sought, there was a universal call for Dick, and he never failed to answer the call, or the question either. At the House Dick was very active, especially at meal times. He will long be remembered as a contributor to the O Pi library. We wish Dick much success, and look forward to reading the name of " Richard Pero " among the names of those that put the textile industry back onto its feet. 49

— THE 1930 PICKOUT — LLOYD SANFORD RAY West Newbury, Massachusetts Football Manager 3 Five years ago, a long, lean granger from West Newbury threw up his job as messenger boy at Hen Weatherbee ' s general store, and with his carpet bag in one hand and his flute in the other, set out for N. H. University to study the gentle and uplifting art of farming. After two years of cow wrangling, he decided that what he needed was more genteel surroundings, so he decided to become gun-carrier for Doc Chapin, the mighty Ion hunter at our fair Institute. His chief duty in this capacity was to advise Doc when that Worthy One became perplexed as to the kind of filing cabinet to use for the safekeeping of the P. Chem. re-exams. (Advice not accepted.) His winning ways, practiced at N. H. L . on the cows, came in handy in keeping his cut sheet clean. His sobs, so softened the stony-hearted maiden who hangs up the cut sheet, that the profs passed in cuts for this lad in vain. (Working in the stock-room gives one such a drag at the office!) His ability to go on his own, he showed as football manager, in which capacity he left little to be desired. Upon leaving us to go into the business world he takes with him our wishes for success, and if he does as well there as he has here, we have no fear but that he will " do to take along " . So long and good luck. 51
