COMMENCEMENT ISSUE John Lawrence Archibald Archie Claremont, N. H. Archie was taken under the wing of the claw of 1928 in the Winter of '27. The chief ambition of his Hermon life has been to get out: that is, to graduate. The high spot of his career was reached when he condescended to become the truant officer. At this position he was a huge success. For all of his diminu- tive appearance he had a voice and a micn that cowed the mightiest and caused the timorous Freshmen to shiver. Archie's two strong antipathies are English Cof any fiavori, and the Sem. The causes for these are unknown, but it is safe to say that they are firm, and the best o' luck for the future may not wipe them away. Athletics: Soccer, F. '27g Wrestling, W. '28. Hayward A big ieplesentatne fiom Africa landed here in the old days and has contin- ued to grow ever since until even a Zulu would have to sharpen his teeth be- fore serving Atkins Stew for dinner. Sunshine has acclimated himself to the pitfalls and dangers of the Hermon Jungle without any dire results. His jolly nature and his ability to "get it done" have made him successful in the club, on the football field, and, Cshall we say it or not?l-in Weston. Ever progressing, although sometimes late to senior tables, Stan has made his last year the best. Now he continues his circling of the globe,-this time pro- ceeding to Oberlin. Class: Chaplain, F.

Good Government Bart rolled--yes, rolled-into Hermon with the motley crew that com- prised the new students in the fall of '27, Needless to say. he resented the feeling of being unclassified-and, worse, of being a froshg so, without. waste of time he "took a flier" and, with the aid of our credit system landed "on all fours" in the '28 class. But this was not all: for, as well as being a dependable defense man in basketball, Bart scored a hit as the English earl in the Senior play. Although by his Sem. entanglernents he has demonstrated his belief in the good old motto "Variety is the spice of life," still Revell has been his rendezvous in the past. His Future?-well -ask Peg. .

Good Government This six-foot Jerseyite, who ate his first Hermon beans in September of '27, has proved himself a worthy member of the class of '28. During his year at Hermon, Doug has been so ready to enter into anything and so successful in enjoying a good time with everyone that he has made many friends. One of the first ways in which he distinguished himself was by making a hit in the Senior Play. After this presentation, he stepped out of his role of butler long enough to be the hero to a very willing heroine from Gould. Batten is plan- ning to enter Hamilton in thc fall, and we wish him as much success there as he has had at I-Iermon. Dormitory: Vice-Pres., S. '28. Club: Chaplain, S. '28, Athletic: Swimming, W.

Were it not for the fact that we are secluded on this hilltop from what matters most in this world, a' hundred feminine hearts would beat a little faster at this declaration. He has been among our best in football, basketball, and swimming: and his interest in club affairs. combined with other extra-curriculum activities, has shown his worth. But it is as an actor that Lew is best known to us, and the ease with which he has been seen to draw the fair heroine to his manly bosom on a well-lighted stage has made us wonder. He has played a notable part in our school life, and we all have enjoyed having him in our midst. We are expecting news of future activities from Mc-Gill. Club: Vice-Pres.. W. '27.

During these four years be was showing us either how it's said in Vermont, or how one should laugh at a good joke. Yes, even the matrons lost their dignity and held their sides when this person visited Northfield. Brat is either taking a position with Barnum and Bailey's as a lion tamer, or taking up Aeronautical Engineering-or he may even sneak through the gates of New Hampshire State.

Hayward , Out of the tangled wilds of China in '24 came a man whose determined pur- pose was to free that great nation from its rice pudding and Chow Mein, but who found it much more worth while to try to free Mount Hermon from beef stew. The remarkable and most astonishing thing about Shorty is the fact that 'he has never lost that enthusiasm, grit and determination which was his when he came, and which has contributed to his success here. A real sport, sympathizer, and friend to all is he,-a capable leader of men: big-hearted. true to the inner self, ever cheerful and content. Our best wishes go with you, Shorty, to Harvard and on into life. . Class: Treas., W. '26, Athletic Mgr., W. '26, F. '27. Athletics: Wrestling, W. '25, W. '26 f"H"J, W. '27 f"H"l, W.

Ever since his arrival in the Fall of '23, he has been persistently overcoming difficulties that would have discouraged many of us. We admire him not only as a hard worker but also as a quiet unassuming friend, Few of us have become well acquainted with "Les," as he has not been a regular student on campus every term, but all who know him admire him for his loyalty and his sincerety. We are sure that the spirit he has shown on Her- mon's campus will win for him many opportunities of usefulness throughout his life. Club: Treas., F. '25, F. '27. Hasbrouck Eckert Christiana Christy Ilion, N. Y. Philomathean Christy hails from Ilion, somewhere in New York fsee Rand-McNalleyJ. This sleepy little hamlet lost one of its men-about-town when our black-haired youth packed his carpet bag and came to do great things on Hermon's hill. The classroom, the gym, and the dorm were scenes of his activity, and in all he showed his worth, but, when it came to a question of the Sem-"Such be for silnple maids and not for queens" CApol0gies to whomever it may con- cernl. Christy is as much an institution of Hermon as the 6:20 bell. Ever faithful to friend, class, and sport, he will be missed by his friends at Hermon. We wish him unlimited success at Illinois and in the years thereafter. Class: Pres., F. '25, Marshal, W. '26 3 Choragus, W. '25, Senior Hermonite Committee. Club: Pres., S. '28, Vice-Pres., F.

Charlie early cultivated a morbid rnistaste for the carniferous mosquito of the Jersey wilds and set out for higher ground. I-Iermon's hill of green appealed to this errant lad, and he joined our goodly throng. In spite of a quiet manner and a reserve, he soon became known to all. By diligence, hard work and devotion to purpose he broke into fame, making scholastic honors. Unlike the Daniel of old-he meditated in his heart to partake of the King's meat, and great was the feast thereof. And now as he leaves our hilltop and resumes his studies at Princeton, we wish him well. THE HERMONITE 13 John Vincent Friel Jack Brooklyn, N. Y. Hayward In the Fall of '24 this innocent lad left his water pistol and his short pants in Brooklyn and came to Hermon to see what a cow looked like. His first few terms were spent in a so-called daze: but soon, "getting wise" to his sur- roundings. he became conspicuous in campus activities. Becoming one of the outstanding men in the school. Jack joined the elite and several times made honors. He also occupied a place on the Student Council, and was active in club and class affairs. Furthermore. and this must be stated with emphasis, he never failed to enjoy his "sisters" at the Sem. Now he goes to the University of Alabama to find out how it is done in the South-and show 'em how he did it in the North. Athletics: Football. F, '25, F. '27g Tennis, S. '26, '27g Baseball, S. '26.

A grouch or a fit of the blues could be dispelled immediately by dragging oneself to Bill Greene's den to hear his cheery, "Aw, that ain't nothin'." It has been whispered that on one and the same day of the week. Knot so long agol he cured the heartbreak of two "cousins" within fifteen minutes by a most remarkable prescription. The Cylinders welcomed him into their fold and shared him with the Dickerson Club. of which he was president as long as its constitution allowed. His favorite song is "Down By the Old 'MIL' Stream." There never was a better man than our Bill Greene. Club: Treas.. S. '26g Rec. Sec., F. 26: Cor. Sec., F. '26g Pres., S. '27, F. '28. Hall: Treas., W. '26. James Wolcott Gum Jimmy Frankford, Del. Good Government . Since the Fall of 1924, everyone on the campus has known that the reechoing shout of "Hi, feller" and the distant approach of an expansive grin are sure signs of the coming of Jim Ginn.

A knack for 'fknowing how" has managed to keep him out of hot water during his four years: while his never-too-serious disposition has kept him from breaking his heart over any subject.

He has been active in athletics. excelling in the game of tennis. Hartz likes his music, and in his room we find the atmosphere which he uses very effectively in mystifying his visitors.

COMMENCEMENT ISSUE Charles Raymond Harwood Ray Rupert, Vr. During the Fall of '26 one may have noticed this lad from the hills of Vermont quietly going about his duties on the campus. Who could then have foretold his development, into one of the highest ranking students in the class? He may, however, outgrow his aversion for the noise of social life and exchange it for tuxedo and roadster. He soon became one of King Richard's minions, doing odd jobs about the basement-learning the business from the bottom up, as it were. Ray did some good running in the Fall crow- eountry races, not taking too much time. of course, from his more serious pursuits. He goes to Middlebury next fall, and our heart-felt good wishes for the best in college life go with him. ' Athletics: Cross-country, F. '27, Soccer, F. '27. Honors: W., S., F.

Immediately his journalistic tendencies asserted themselves in his work for the Hermonile and as a correspondent for the Hartford Times. In Cottage 4 Dick soon rose to the top,-in fact. so much that he successfully held alone the much desired Sky Parlor. Along with his studies and his journalism, this youth found time to read the humorous publications Ctechnique by Haldemann Juliusl. supply East Northfield with mail, and help care for the campus.

Hayward Harold Zell Heuston. called Bud by his contemporaries and other names by his teachers, hails from the upper end of New York, where men are men, and the women-but that's a different story. This two-tisted, half-miling, poetry-writing young rascal has won eternal fame and everlasting affection from his classmates. He was just as much at ease in a French class as in Hillside Parlor. His wit is traditional, his athletic prowew still spoken of. He helped build the prestige of Hayward, and as number 3 clothed the "Cylinders" in radiance.

It was not long before it became evident that he would become one of our '28 aggregation. As a student, John is eternally after the high grades, and some- times he gets them. ln the field of sports it may well be said that this man is not of the ordinary. He is an all-round athlete, having a special ability in football, hockey. and golf. .lack is certainly a. society eel, and it is said that he takes quite an interest in the Seminary class of '27 for a good reason.

THE HERMONITE 15 Cary Howlett Cary Southampton, Mass. From Southampton came this son of Hercules to perform his labors at Hermon. And well did he perform them. In the classroom, on the wrestling mat. and on the gridiron Cary soon made a name for himself. We often wondered whence came the mighty physique and far-famed head-lock that so aided him. Perhaps 'Hamp' is the explanation. In the affections of his friends also he ranks highly-particularly in those of the now far-scattered and almost forgotten t'TerribIe Six." Whether Cary goes on to the scientific nursing of bovine quadrupeds or to the honorable profession claimed by most of the Presidents of the United States. we wish him luck. Athletics: Football. F.

His flaming red hair and his impetuous good nature made many a firm friend for him among students and faculty alike. Athletically, he is quite versatile, engaging in track. soccer and wrestling toccassionallyl, and also blowing up footballs and bugles. His fleetness of foot and his quickness of movement make him successful in whatever he undertakes. Socially, too. he was prominent. As President of the Lyceum Club. he represented the Club Council on the Student Council, and he was responsible for many of the improvements of club cooperation. To whatever college the Flaming Youth goes we venture to assert that the college will find in him a real man. Class: Treas., S. '27. F. '27. Club: President, W. '28. Club Council: Pres- ident, W.

This un- assuming little urchin wended his way from New Haven in the Fall of 1924 to take his place in the motley crowd of Hermon Freshmen. Dick took up his abode in cottage 2, but his hard-heeled slippers and his Bacchus-like spirit proved to be too noisy for that dormitory. In his new abode at Cottage 5, Dick developed into the all-round man. A little rough-house or a lesson in ll Pensernso, a game of soccer or a. passage in Caesar received the same careful attention. Although he claimed membership in the Bachelors Club, class parties found him in company with some Arethusa who had made a secret passage trans Humen. Our best wishes go with you, Dick.

Besides possessing valuable abilities, he does not lack a sense of humor, and his character is the type Hermon will miss. Club: Debator. F. '27. Glee Club: S. '27. S.

Desiring an education, he came to Hermon, but was forced to drop out for a while because of Hnance and health. He later returned to continue his studies, and has shown us what sheer grit and determination can accomplish, for Mac is now one of the ranking students of his class. His love of religious and philosophical dis- cussion has led him into many a keen argument, and his powers of deduction are of the sharpest. The fight has been a hard one, and we tender our congratulations to one who has conquered. Hayward Rudy Maslak is one of the few '28 men who first set foot on this campus in the fall of '24. Since then he has developed in the class and with the class. He has fought for '28 in foot-ball, in baseball, and in track. Of his club, too, he has always been a loyal supporter, Best of all, however, we are far more conscious of the true, sterling qualities that makes up his quiet, unassuming personality. As Rudy leaves for college, we wish him the best of success, knowing that, if he keeps up the steady pace he has maintained here at' Her- mon, he will do well wherever he goes. Club: Treas., F.

Apparent- ly among strangers, Archie soon won his way into the confidence and the friendship of all. There are certain admirable qualities about him, he has been consistent, ever cheerful, and determined to accomplish his desired end. In spite of the fact that there were inevitable handicaps, Archie never lost his enthusiasm, zeal, and persistency to overcome all obstacles.

That drawl-that humor-that smile-all products of Birmingham and Washington bore evidence that he had never driven a pair of oxen in Vermont. Quite without pretentiousness, he is charm- ing, candid, and ingenuous. Among those with whom he has mingled, which exclude none, he has been a standard. Bill's bubbling humor, his originality, and his well-known roaring laugh are a better cure for a case of the blues than the best of Mix Speakman's remedies.

Ever since his arrival he has been prominent in football and hockey. both as a player and as a leader. showing at all times a spirit of good sportsmanship. He is always considerate of the interests of others and has been a sociable companion for many on the campus. He is undoubtedly a big out-door man, and he is often seen heading in the general direction of the golf links, but we are sure he did not always go for golf alone, for even golfers have been known to succumb to feminine charms.

His faithfulness in his studies. his enthusiasm in the work of his club.. his loyalty to Overtoun Hall. and his good sportsmanship in all the sports in which he participated,-all point to the earnestness that governed his life at Hermon. In only one respect has a less serious side to his nature become evident. Eddie is a noted collector of powder-puffs, and we suspect some of them fiashed a reflection in the window of the Book Store. In the main. however, he has proved himself a Hermonite of worth. and we wish him the best success in the years to eome. Club: Vice-Pres., F. '27. Athletics: Cross Country. F. '26g Soccer. F.

Back in the good old days of 1924, Dick. a Dllllj coal nnnei from Ranticoke. Pennsylvania, came through the gates to Hermon civilization. A conscientious, but amiable student, he soon won his way into the hearts of the other students. Being recognized early as a leader by his classmates, Dick was elected to the higher positions of his class from the very start. He was, sad to say, lured towards Revell Hall at the Sem. by a sweet little girl with the suitable name of Honey. It cannot be doubted that this fine example of Hermon man shall make his way in the world: for. besides his all-round ability. there is inherent in him a fine, noble character.

Ed has worked well for his class and for his club, and is conspicuous for having made his t'letter" in scholarship. being the highest ranking man in the class.

He has proved himself to be an accomplished player of both tennis and baseball. while pool, although not yet a recognized sport, has kept him busy practicing. Hermon loses a clever and well-liked man as Lew goes on to Udo B. U. the most." Arthur Curtis Pratt Venus Brooklyn, Conn. Venus is best known as one of generous size and as an exponent of West Hall music, especially those unusual ditties that precede the daily repasts. He has been known to doze a bit in classes and Chapel: but, when he polishes the ivories as a member of the Jazz orchestra, he is the life of the party. As for Vespers, Venus went over BIG and came back just as big: but, according to his own accounts, his pilgrimages were not momentous successes. True to type, his jovial good nature and warm-hearted smile gathered him many friends. and there can be no doubt that he will be welcome wherever he casts his LOT. l Henry Blanchard Pratt, Jr. Henry Antrim, N, H. In the Fall of '25 there appeared on Hermon's Hill our one and only outcast from Antrim-if you know where we mean. He had not been with us long before we realized his ability as a student. lVhen he was not delving into volumes in an effort to settle world problems, he could be found working industriously at his lessons.

It has been noticed that he was unsuccessful in his attempts to imitate Bobby Jones, and that he concluded golf is not essential for successful Latin teachers. even though it does add substantially to the vocabulary.

This versatile New Yorker has wrestled with physical opponents, run track teams. and starred in the Dormitory skits. and was the whole solar system in the '27 play. He was the famed number 1 of the Cylinders, and the original scourge of any Seniitc who dared to "n'est-ce pas" in any of the many letters he received from across the stream. Sparkling wit was his inheritance. His political oratory will long be remembered and copied. The original Schapiro llermoniic articles on Senior parties are priceless manuscripts now.

Deefie came to Hermon from the Lincoln School in the Fall of '27, another of the crowd of high-school and prep-school graduates who- did not consider their education complete without a year of Hermon. He found plenty of friends in Crossley, where he roomed, as well as in the other dorms, and soon gained popularity. His room will be remembered by those of us who were fortunate enough to see it as remarkable for the fact that scarcely one square inch of the wall was visible, because of the numerous artistic decora- tions. In spite of excursions to Greenfield, and such minor diversions as making an escape from the "sky-parlor" in one of the cottages by means of -sh-h-hl two school bedspreads tied together, IIGYIHOII life proved too dull for him, and he left after the College Board exams in June to enjoy himself for the summer.

There are few more terrifying sights than to see him solemnly stalk about in the cold. gray dawn quoting lines from Macbeth, or to watch him enter a room when he is in one of his serious moods. But while he has all the eccentricities of a genius, -ranging from a partiality to the letter "S" to a delight in snow-baths in the winter-time-George has always been to his friends as gay as the gayest, and a genial, generous comrade. During his stay at Mount Hermon, he be- came so completely absorbed in chemistry that his mind has become a vast storehouse of chemical lore. George goes to Massachusetts Tech next fall.

But it is true just the same. The Glee Club receives calls from new districts each year, and thus its territory becomes more and more extensive. The Hill, however, is the place where the Glee Club toils and struggles so as to be able to lilt its way acceptably through the outside performances. Student recognition and appre- ciation of these efforts grows each successive year. To praise the Glee Club and not give credit for its success to Prof. l. J. Lawrence, its director, would be unforgivable. Were the term system different at Hermon, it would be hard to state to what heights of success he would raise it.. But with ever changing per- sonnel, Prof. works incessantly and accomp- lishes practically the impossible. It would bc just as serious an offense not to mention Mr. L'Hommedieu, our accompanist. His tireless fingers often keep the Glee Club in good humor while the members struggle over some difficult passage. The most important concerts given during the past year were rendered at Brattleboro, Northfield, Greenfield, Putney and Newfane. Some concerts have been given also in con- junction with the Estey Chorus from the Northfield Seminary. The last of these joint concerts was presented at the Seminary Commencement. The boys put all their soul into the singing as they recalled to the Grad- uating Class the 'tSongs My Mother Taught Me," as they reviewed the past few years near the ttliights on Hermon's Hill," and as they tried to fill their departing sisters "With Courage and Faith" for their struggle with life after leaving the terraced banks of the Connecticut. Hubert G, Smith THE HERMONITE 25 , K A The Orchestra R. Leonard Ellinyvood filled a very def- inite need in school life when he formed, last fall, the first official orchestra the school has had for some years. lt was a well-balanced group and, by application, grew in a surpris- ingly short time. At the Thanksgiving Con- cert, when it made its first appearance, it per- formed very creditably for so young an organization. It was the combined orchestra, however, composed of the Whittle Orchestra of North- field Seminary and our own players, which aroused the most interest. This combination was really very good and offered some very fine music. The first public appearance of the combined orchestras was at the Pop Con- cert in Northfield in November. They appeared again at Memorial Chapel in April, when the players lived up to the reputation they had made. With their share in the Estey Concert in June our musicians brought to a triumphant close their Iirst season. The rapid success of the undertaking was due to Mr. Ellinwood's efforts, which brought order out of chaos, to the skill and the appli- cation of the players, and to the high standard that prevailed in the choice of music. Among the pieces that were played during the year are 'tFly Minuet" by Czibulka, "Overture" from the "Magic Flutel' by Mozart, "Valse Triste" by Sibelius, and the "March" from "Tannhauser'l by VVagner, Mention should be made of the stringed quartet, the trio, and the brass quartct,- all formed from the orchestra. These groups, improving of course with time, rendered some very good music. lt is the wish of all on campus that the orchestra continue the work which has been begun, and give the school that which only it can give.

September 9th, 1924, was a rainy, drizzling, dismal day during the eourse ol' whieh we lreslnnen plodded in a straggling fashion up through the Pines, slip- ping and sliding in the spattering rain. The important feature that eharaeterized our arrival was our large numher. 'l'here were two hundred and fifty ol' us, eoinprising the largest 4-lass that has yet nleseended on Hernion, so large in laet that the reeeption ol' the follow- ing Saturday eouhl not, as eustomarily, he held at, llr. t'utler's residenee and was given at Vamp Hall. lint to return to Registra- tion Day! Alter the u- sual disorder, at the hegin- ning ol' a seemingly endless hne-W waiting, reg- istering, and making out ot' schedules at Holbrook Hall and then finding our new rooms, and heeoming aequainted with the eampus, some ol' the old hoys, and the Her- inon way of doing things, our elass found it- self well started on its eareerg our Freshman year had hegun. lt is almost needless to give an aeeount of the athleties, the meetings, and the other aetivities ol' the elass during this year, be- eause it. like all other lfreslnnan elasses, had no ellieient organization. l should like, how- ever, to make note ol' two or three ineidents. Out ot' our ehaotie meeting eame one ex- pression whieh sinee has heen the pass word at the eleetions ol' ollieers, for, when a speaker has heen without definite argument for a eandidate, he has suhstituted this trite ex- ' 'ran si+:N1oR-JUNIOR ROPE-PULL pression, "He's the man for the job." The elass, furthermore, was exceedingly am- bitious, it was going to he the big freshman elass, not only in size hut also in aehieyeinentg it was going to break all records and have a party with the Seminary Freshmen. Dr. Cutler, to all appearances, approved of our project, yet l realize that no one of us deteetted the sparkle in those misehievous eyes of his. How well he knew the ultimate re- sult. It was when we eonferred with the authorities at the Seminary in our at,- tempt to in a k e a r - rangements t h a t w e struek a snag, a snag on w h i e h w e hung until our .lunior year, for not until then did we get our party. I n o u r Sophomore year, however, when our Vast nuinhers that had thronged the galleries and the side pews of the main floor of the ehapel hegan to dwindle down, and we oeeupied the seats in the rear of the eenter seetion, where we had our turn at being tl1e inisehievous boys at chapel,-then we gave vent to some of our Uvaulting ambition." The elass was organ- ized, a eonstitution was drawn upg the elass eolors, red and hlue, were ehosen: our eheer was devised: "Yip, yip, yip-i-ti-yatel I-9-2-85" our honorary members were eleeted, the per- sonel of which has ehanged but little during the four years except that in our senior year one more was added, namely, Dr. Cutlerp and our motto, "Faeta non verhaf' was seleet- THE HERMONITE 27 ed, a motto by which the class, in a large measure, has been characterized. Yet in athletics the class has not starred as some other classes, for it has won but few champion- ships, one in basket-ball, one in cross-country, one in indoor track, one in outdoor track, and one in football. But our tight for the championship in basketball, which was won in the Sophomore year, is worthy of special mention, because the last two games of the series were the most thrilling and gripping contests that have occurred at Hermon during the history of this class. On Thanksgiving Day the class made a very good appearance at West Hall, with its extensive decorations, including, the lmge numerals 1928 which hung across the south end of the hall. In apprecia- tion of the excellent dinner that Demi had made, some of our members brought him into the dining room, where everybody heartily cheered him. During the following years this act of appreciations has been continued. For the benefit of the seniors of that year, we had devised a little song, "Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all tl1e way, U, what fun it is to slide across the muddy way." It was much fun, indeed, to sing it to them, we had a great deal more fun the following year, as juniors, in singing it to the '27 seniors, but it was only the next year as seniors that we got all the fun of the song, by sliding across the muddy way ourselves. Then came our Junior year, it was probably the most exciting year of this history, for there was much contention between the 1927 seniors and us, and the best part about our escapadcs was that we usually came out on top. Before the annual rope-pull wc made a little grave behind West Hall, with a tomb- stone indicating the place where the seniors were to be buried after the contest, if they should be defeated. Surely enough, they lost: and, in order to retaliate by stopping our parade in West Hall, they tied up our pres- ident, who, however, was soon freed. The night before tl1e final football game of that season somebody painted the goal posts red and blue tmost likely they were juniorsl. The next day at noon some one else tried to paint them some other color. Everybody fled from the dining hall to see the excitement and to stop the painting. At this game the senior goat was torn to pieces before it was brought on the field. Later we Hgot the seniors' goat" still worse by having for their benefit a tag day, on which we wore little red tags. One sunshiny morning all of us marched up to chapel with our new class caps, but soon many of us were lacking caps, because the seniors found keen pleasure in snatching them from us while we were not looking. Since the sen- iors had been having bad luck, caused by some of our pranks, they, to get even, stole our bannerg but theirs too disappeared in a short time. In fact, there was so much tension be- tween the two classes that one night a quarrel which occurred in front of the chapel between the Crossley and the Overtoun boys, and which aroused Dr. Cutler, was taken to be a Junior-Senior affair. Then came our Senior year, a year during which we have had some excitement, but dur- ing which also we have done some memorable deeds. Our class during this year l1as been very small, having approximately hfty members, but we have stayed united, enjoying many good times. Of the vast number that started with the class in the Fall of 1924 only twelve have remained to graduate. This year the nocturnal episode of painting the goal posts on the football field was re- peated. ln trying to subdue the many Fresh- men somc one got a fire hose to spray them with. But they, being many, captured the hose, and a large number of the boys were drenched, not only it-he colorfully paint- bespattered Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores but also the green Freshmen. The Juniors on that night had much fun ripping up our decorations at Camp Hall, which were in preparation for a party the next day, but we l1ad more fun seeing them, under compulsion, redecorate for us. Another exciting experience that we 'had with our Junior brothers occured just before chapel service on the day that the 1928 numerals were put on the Senior Rock. One of the 'ttalkativew Juniors, trying to sec how much of our ire he could arouse by not only talking but also demolishing the numerals, CCUILZ. lo page 410 COMMENCEMENT ISSUE Junior Class Sophomcsre Class THE HER MONITE 29 Class E, the distinguished members of the Class of 1928 of Mount Hermon School, being of sound mind despite the expressed opinion of many to the contrary, realizing that the time for our last meeting together as undergraduates is fast approaching and wish- ing to dispose of such of our privileges, rights, and property as shall be of no use to us as Alumni, do hereby declare this document to be our last Will and Testament: Article I. We first direct that all our just debts be paid: 1. To Doctor Cutler, for his constant- in- spiration and guidance during our lives here, and to Mrs. Cutler, for many -- pleasing after- noons at Ford Cottage, we ex- press our deep- est appreciation. 2.. T o t h e Faculty, who have labored to teach us not only our daily lessons in the classroom but also the greater lessons of life, we give our sincere thanks. 3. To our many other friends on the Hill we leave grateful acknowledgement for all that they have done to make our lives here both pleasant and worth while. 4. And to Mount Hermon itself, in return for all it has made us, we pledge our absolute loyalty and utmost support for all time. Article II. 1. To the Junior Class, who are so eagerly anticipating crossing the threshold to Senior- hood, we bequeath the privilege of occupying the orchestra seats at chapel and thus of en- joying to greater advantage their advanced position in life, together with the right to saunter past the Senior garden and to enter the Senior door unmolested. We invite them to rest their weary limbs and inseribe their Will , odd numerals upon the renowned Senior rock, and we also pass on to them Stan Atkins' secret formula for removing dark and bloody stains therefrom. We freely leave them our alcove seats in VVest Hall, together with all the wads of chewing gum that Lew Place and Ed,Sullivan have deposited beneath the tables there. Finally, we urge each of the Juniors to enjoy to the full his weekly opportunity of walking ten miles for and at least ten pews with one of the fabled beauties of the Seminary. 2. To the Sophomores we intrust the Class Baby with the advice to guard it well from all would-be kidnappers. As they are soon to experience their first Northfield-Hermon party, we give to their vice- president Vic Smiths genius , for solving the intricate social problems that are sure to arise. Lastly, we urge them to 'tpull togetherl' and give the Juniors a long - needed . mud bath. 3. T o th e Freshman Class and to all future Freshmen we pass on our encouragement to "fight hard," to "stick to it," and to live up to the ideals and principles of Mount Hermon in the hope 'that their classes may, in each case be better than ours. I Article III. 1. To the class that proves itself most worthy and able to gain them, we leave the many championships, honors, and trophies that we have won during our four years on 'the Hill. 2. Un all future athletes we confer the opportunity to break the records set by Ver- meulen, Holbrook, Keown, and our half-mile relay team. 3, To the Class of 1948 we will all the crepe paper and thumbtaeks left from our 30 COMMENCEMENT IssUE various festivities, to be used in decorating the gymnasium for their Senior Promenade. 4.

Smith we present a brand new alarm clock in the hope that by its use he may he more prompt not only in arriving at but likewise in dismissing his English Classes. 7. To Don Sheldon we give Brat Burgess' most singular laugh, so that he may assist Frank Bentley in disturbing the peace. 8. To Mr. Watson we hand down the priv- ilege this year of buying himself a bright red necktie, which he must wear at least once each week. 9. To George Blass we leave Coley Browns skill in playing the heroine in the Senior Play. 10. To Stofila we return with interest all the room points that he has so generously distributed to us this last term. 11. To Irish Thompson we give Jack Friel's poise and self-confidence in order that Irish may lack nothing that a perfect open-forum orator should have. 12. To Louis Reik we present some of Zell Heuston's and Chip Schapiro's choicest puns to be used in the columns of the Hcrmonitc. 13. To Morrissey we leave Ed Living- ston's conservatism in management that has led to such a successful Hermonite. 14. To Ed Moore we bequeath a liberal supply of Bill Obear's hot air. 15. To Al Petschke We pass on Charlie Peters' task of trying to keep Overtoun clean. 16. To those who aspire to certain extra- curriculum activities we give an account of the t'Trail by Moonlight" by Greene, Ober, and McKinney. 17. To Ray Paul we hand down Giff Towle's wing collar to be worn in the next club debate. Ctfonl. to page 483 . , Tl.: Freshman Class THE HERMONITE 31 Societies HE six clubs at Mount Hermon, - name- ly, Good Government Club, Philoma- thean Literary Society, Pierian Literary Soci- ety, Dickerson Scientific Club, Lyceum Club, and Hayward Club,-have had a busy year. ln the Fall Term most of the clubs spent Mountain Day in groups. Hayward and Goo- Goo enjoyed initiation and good times at Spofford Lake. The Dicks first went to Andyls camp, over the be held indoors, none seemed to lack thrills. Founder's Day found some of the clubs enter- taining fair visitors in their club rooms as well as on the broad campus. No others know so well as the actual mem- bers what such a year's program means to the individual and his club. The purpose of the clubs is mainly fellowship. But this is not all. In weekly meetings the purpose is training for leadership Mohawk Trail, and then ended at Spofford. The Philos and the Pies motor- ed to Mount Mona, and Lyceum to Winchendon and vicinity. Mountain climb- ing, repairing 'fweary char- iotsf' canoeing, playing football, and indulging in various other activities Hlled the day to its fullest for various club men. Dur- ing the Fall Term the clubs held an intcrclub open night in Camp Hall,the main fea- ture of which was an illus- trated lecture by C. VV. Johnson of Springfield. The initiations also added color to the fall program. ln the literary Held, the Hayward victory over the Pics and that of the Philos over the Goo-Goes in debate played a prominent part in club activity. During the VVinter Term the thoughts of club men turn Hrst to the festive board. Most of thc six select gatherings met some time during the term at the VVeldon in Greenneld to help perpetuate a fine Hermon custom, that of the club banquets. lnterclub rivalry warmed perceptibly at the Daniels' song fest, where thc Lyceum club was slated for the Honors, theirs being second winning of the cup. Hayward clinched the interclub debates and placed its name again on the debating cup. Although most of the initiations had to THE ALUMNI CUP l through self-expression. By short talks, stunts, and musical productions, the members learn to acquire self-control before an au- dience. Debating exper- ience and office-holding have important parts in extra-curriculum work. The club, however, serves a definite and useful pur- pose not only for its mem- bers but also for its Alma Mater. This spring the Club Council, a body con- sisting of thc club pres- idents, helped plan and put into execution the work by the student body on Shadow Lake. This body, like the Student Council, represents a body of men to thc rest- of the school and the administra- tion. But what of the future of the clubs? That lies wholly within the hands of its individual members. Since club life is so vital to Hermon, since the fellowship gained in these six organizations is seldom enjoyed anywhere else on the hill, and since the training in leadership and debate is lasting, it should be the continuous policy of these organizations, individually and collectively to strengthen themselves. Only by 'tEternal vigilancel' can they make of themselves what they should. Gif Towle COMMENCEMENT ISSUE Dickerson Scientific Club Good Government Club THE HERMONITE Hayward Club Lyceum Club THE HERMONITE 35 The Tiger Earl The Senior Play NOTABLE fact about the Senior Play this year is that it was presented both at Vamp Hall and at the Seminary Auditorium. This was the first time that a Hermon Senior Play had been given before the student body of the Seminary and before the townspeople. The audiences in both places were very appre- ciative, and the actors, very well adapted to their respective roles, scored a tremendous "hit-." It was amusing to notice that, true to life, the Hermon audience applauded the heroine, whereas the Seminary gathering praised the hero. On the evening of Saturday March 3, while the Senior Class honoraries were selling the fifty pounds of home-made candy sent from the Seminary, Camp Hall was assuming the aspect of a crowded city theatre on the first night of the showing of a masterpiece. Indeed, iyhen the curtain rose, not a seat in the hall was vacant. The action of The Tiger Earl takes place in Pammure Castle, the home of an English lord. The present earl is in financial difficulties, and, although he does not cease in his search for the hidden treasure of his grandfather, the Tiger Earl, he is forced to take boarders- much to the distress of the old family butler. The boarders provide a great deal of excite- ment, while the aged housekeeper foreshadows the ghostly happenings that come at the end of the play. The earl's daughter and the artist-boarder occasion the love interest. An English dandy turns out to be the villain who has stolen the jewels of the castle, and everybody is happy-after the exit of the boarders. The actors deserve much credit for their good work in the respective parts. John Bartram was a typical conservative English- man as he played the part of the Earl. Coley Brown as Margaret, the earl's daughter, used his art of coquetry in his disguise as a little- more-American-than-an-English girl, and won a big ovation at his appearance at both per- formances. Doug Batten as the old family butler drew from the audience gales of laughter because of his superst-itions. Brat Burgess in the role of Mrs. Jeremiah Stowe, the nosey wife of the hen-peeked Professor Stowe in the form of Dick Kinney, made quite a hit with his Yankee Twang. Zell Heuston, the English fop, brought many a snicker with his affected speaking and with his mispro- nounced 'fr's.l' Not to be forgotten is Alan Wescott, who, as Martha, the old housekeeper, petrified the audience with the ghastly tales of the Tiger Earl and of the Bishop. Then, too, Lew Buckley carried his part excellently in showing the Hermonites - and the Semites -- how to make love. The best actor, un- doubtedly, was Red Wild, who appeared as the lady of the castle-a position which he filled with exquisite grace and dignity. Much praise, however, is due the unseen workers behind the stage. Ed. Kaus proved himself a real stage manager, Dick Berry saw to it that all the little details of stage prop- erties were attended to, George Blass demon- strated his knowledge of feminine beauty in making-up the actors, Vic Smith arranged all the lighting effects, on which a great deal of the success of the play depended, and, we may safely say, if it had not been for the excellent directing on the part of Mr. Ross, there would have been no play. ' From the business point of view, the play was, perhaps, the greatest success at Hermon for all time. The programs, by the advertise- ments, tthanks to Red Keownj paid for them- selves and for other details of business. Main- taining the same price set by the preceding Senior Class, the Class of '28 enriched its treasury by a sum of over one hundred and forty dollars from the performance at Camp Hall. But this was not all, for, from the second performance given on March 12th the net receipts stood well over one hundred and ninety dollars- a total of three hundred and thirty dollars net profit. Of this amount the Senior Class presented a check for nearly fifty dollars to the Seminary Senior Class in appre- ciation of its help. tflonl. lo page 479 36 COMMENCEMENT Issue .

Following the first call for football last September, well over one hundred candidates appeared for practice on Chamber's Field. For two weeks, Coach Sargis did what he could to instruct some of the new men in the technique of the game. At the end of two weeks, the squad was broken up into class teams under the supervision of their respective captains. Then the work began. Each cap- tain did his utmost so to instruct and encour- age the men under him that his team might claim the Championship. The first games of the season were a repetition of what has be- come almost a tradition here at Hermon, the Seniors defeated the Sophomoresg and the Juniors, the Freshmen. Too much credit can- not be given the two lower classes for the fight that they put into their games, for, with- out coaching and with very little training, they gave more experienced teams a battle for their scores. The end of the season found '28 on top, with five victories and but one defeat. These victories may be ascribed to the fine teamwork on the part of each man on the '28 squad. Although the underclassmen al- ways have had a larger group with many out- standing individual stars, their teams never seem to show the same cooperative playing as is shown by the teams of the upperclassmen. We should like to mention some of the out- standing players, but we feel that every man deserves peculiar credit in his particular posi- tion. The winners of the Championship, the '28 team, is the first to have its name engraved on a handsome football trophy presented by Rev. Albert C. Fulton, '94, and Mr. Albert R. Fulton, '21. Although football is the big sport of the Fall Term, soccer is fast coming to a place of widespread interest at Hermon. The past sea- son saw the various teams evenly matched with players of ability, a condition which heightened the general interest in the sport. Keen competition combined with good sports- manship drew forth many rooters for their respective teams. The Freshmen capped the season by their close victory over the Juniors in a rousing match that ended 1 - 0. This year, as in past years, track has brought many men into the limelight at Her- mon. In cross-country, Olds did what was expected of him by winning the two- and the five-mile races, while Kelly, the surprise of the season, captured the three-mile, placed a close second in the five-mile, and finished well in the other race. The Bemis Medals awarded for the first three places in the five-mile race, contested for by the majority of the student body, were awarded to Olds, Kelly. and Lynch respectively. By tradition each of the first thirty men received a well-earned pie. The beginning of the Winter Term found groups of men at work in the gymnasiumpre- paring for the coming indoor track meet. The usual number of events were run off with fast competition between the four classes, the two outstanding features of the day being the high kick and the half-mile relay. VVhitworth, Bailey and Meekham broke the former high- kick record set by B. L. Smith of '27. The Senior relay team, although bettering the record for the half-mile relay, cannot have its time recorded due to a technicality. But there was no technieality in the outdoor track meet in June to prevent the '28 relay team from winning the half-mile relay a good margin. Keown deserves much praise for taking four Firsts in the dashes and aiding his team to win the relay. VVoodland, too, deserves mention as the outstanding distance man of the day. There were some surprises in the field events, yet few accomplishments were up to standard. The '28 Class won the meet as they have in two of their previous three years, this time by a margin of twenty-eight points over their nearest opponents, the Freshmen. Just when the frost made outdoor sports a little uncomfortable, the boys started limber- ing up in the gymnasium for the basketball season.

It certainly did not spring, like a Garden of Eden, from these barren New England hills. Ah nol Countless Hermon men have followed D. L. Moody's vision, and by persistent labor have made this hill a spot of admiration to all who View its natural beauty. Countless Hermon men have tugged and strained, lifted and pulled in order that level verdant fields might spring forth out of ragged sterile pastures. On this momentuous occasion we stop to consider what part we have had in this bet- tering, this beautifying of our schoolg we pause to catch again the meaning of work. As I hold this spade, which is but a mighty symbol,-dear to many Hermon men, I feel the fitness of a few particularly appropriate lines of a significant poem entitled Work: - "Shun not the struggle. Face it! lTis God's gift." Let me echo those concluding words: " 'Tis Godls gift!" l am tired of hearing men talk of responsibility as the leading star 'to achieve- ment. What- man has not received a certain pleasure from the accomplishing,-yea even in the doing of a menial task? There can be not the remotest doubt as to the keen satisfac- tion in the accomplishment. Admit it or not, the desire of finishing the job, the spirit of fighting through to accomplishment is indeed at beacon that guides many through a stormy passage. But is this all? Many of us recall spending each four hours in helping build the Overtoun Athletic Field, and a few of our number were on the scene of action when the students aided in the construction of the Crossley Field. This very Spring Term, we again for a time abandoned our books and worked to make Shadow Lake a more beauti- ful spot. We have discovered that-, after all, there is fun in the very doing of such work as this if entered in.the right spirit. ln a similar manner thc man on the work hour often discovers that, if his attitude is right, and if his bit is done well, there is a certain sense of satisfaction. lf we can enter the Oration duties of life not only with the idea that work is worth while, and that effort spent digging earns results, but also with the realization that there is a real pleasure in the work it- self, troubles will flee like a sand pile before the swinging shovel. When D. L. Moody founded this school, he clearly saw the advantages of mental and physical labor combined. He knew the basic principle involved, and many institutions, with similar systems, bear witness to his judgment. That some of the earliest students of Mount Hermon appreciated this sound judgment of our founder is testified to by one of the choicest anecdotes that have to do with the l880's. On a certain occasion while on the work hour, which we all know so well, the Class of '89, in the spirit of fun, presented their laboring junior brothers with this spade. Not to be outdone, the Class of '90 turned the trick and adopted the motto, 'fWe dig," and the following year presented it at commence- ment in their turn to the juniors of '91 with the wish of making it a traditional ceremony. Thus each year, by this unique custom started so long ago, we are reminded of the signif- icance of work. Last year at this time we received this spade from the graduating class, with the in- junction to carry out its meaning. We hope that in a measure we have lived up to its intent, that, guided by our class motto, Facta, Non Verbo-Deeds Not Words, We have proved our mettle. Now it is our turn to pass on, our privilege to charge you, the Class of '29, with its sacred trust. You can not in your turn hope for success unless you follow its simple challenge, "We dig." Into your care, however, we pass it on, assured that, as each ribbon represents a former battling band of loyal Hermon men, similarly by the time your blue and gold shall be added to the dusty rainbow of colors, you will have made Hermon better for your accomplishments. May you not shun, but face the struggle, for it is God's gift. Certainly only by "digging" will you achieve. Gifford H. Towle 46 COMMENCEMENT ISSUE CLASS HISTORY Clfonl. from page .273 was immediately tackled, but other juniors came to help him. Immediately more seniors jumped into the scufiie, and a regular free-for- all "hot-tomoley" game followed. When the hell was tolling out the fatal one-minute warning, we with torn shirts and an otherwise generally ragged appearance entered the chapel. The hands of us seniors stung and were very warm, but some Juniors were smart- ing and were warmer somewhere else. Besides our combats with the Juniors, the Seniors among themselves have had regular "taking over the bumps," as they have termed it. During this, our last year, our social life has been better than usual. With particularly vivid memories do some of us recall our latest and last party, which was held at the Bears' Den, and which was sponsored by two chap- erons, who as a result of a somebody's inspired suggestion took a little stroll that was not only delightful to them but also very appropriately pleasing to us. Another social event deserving mention is the banquet which was given at the Hotel Northfield to the Seniors of Hermon and the Seminary by Mrs. W. R. Moody on the evening of Founder's Day. Our trip over the Mohawk Trail also is memorable. And, likewise, we fondly recall the pleasant Sunday evenings that we have spent at Ford Cottage. Among other interests of the Senior year is our football championship, for which our class is the first to have its numerals engraved on the Fulton football trophy and to be awarded the little golden footballs. Among the traditions that this class has inaugurated this year, one is the decision con- cerning the Class Baby, which now sits on the fountain before Recitation Hall. Heretofore it has been fought over and hidden most of the time, but now through the efforts of this class a set of rules has been made concerning the tampering with it. Another tradition of importance that we have started is the presentation of a piece of rope in connection with the annual Junior- Senior rope-pull. It is' to be passed from each Senior class to the corresponding Junior class, accompanied with the significant motto, "We pull." The most important memorial, however, that the class is leaving behind is the memor- ial of pine trees which crowns the crest of Her- mon. It is dedicated to the Hermon men who stood in their places during the World War. Long shall we remember the dedication speeches given by Dr. Cutler and the president and the vice-president of the class on Memor- ial Day of this year. Now our history at Hermon comes to a close. One very important matter, however, yet to be mentioned is the warm friendship in the class. Though we, its members, doubtless shall never meet all together again, who can doubt that our friendship for one another will steadily grow and that individually we all shall return to this cherished hill top, to strengthen thereby the love for Mount Her- mon in which 1928 most of all prides herself? Alan J. Campbell ATHLETICS cC011t. from page 443 Besides these sports, opportunity isvgiven for wrestling, swimming, boxing, fencing, and tennis. This season has seen a marked in- crease in tennis on the Hill-due perhaps to the large number of skillful players entered in the matches. With such men as Hartzler, Stotz, Towle, R. I. Taylor, Place, Paine and Osborne on the courts, fast and interesting tournaments were witnessed by many enthu- siastic spectators. As we review the athletics of our four years here at Hermon, we feel sure that, beyond the development of competitive group athletics, our physical department should interest every student in some phase of athletics which meets his desire, for recreation and also his need for a well-rounded, well-balanced phy- sical development. Through our interclass organization, athletics have become not a restricted field of activities for a compar- atively few stars, but a vast open stretch in which there is ample rbom for students less brilliant in their respective games.

H I had skidded of the course I would have st people a quarter of a mile away in four seconds Said by Captain Zllalwlm Campbell who recently established a speed record of JIlU.!l5li miles an hour at Daytona Beach A SPECTACULAR thought-stimulating sentence that emphasizes the tremendous progress that has been made in things mechanical during the few years since the war. Not so spectacular but just as progressive has been the advance in printing equipment and methods of production.
