. . . the terrible Jim Ma-yshark . . .
The heart of a fighter, the strength of a tiger, the smile of an unfailingly good
sport introduce Ken Allan. Legion is tl1e name of those men of HCFIIIOII, past
and present, who have felt Ken's brawn, n111scle, and weight in athletics. Not
alone, however, in athletics has Ken been famous: but also because of his experi-
ence with the terrible Jim Mayshark, his battle of the French verbs and idioms,
and finally, his attainment of grad11ation. Another outstanding characteristic of
Ken's well-earned success is the steadfastncss and constancy with which he
tackles all his diflicult problems, and it is for this reason that his high achieve-
ments are possible.

ret at ootefl position as Mercury . . .
'lhat Adrian has accomplished much since his arrival here can not be denied.
By far his most brilliant aceoinplislnnent, however, is his fleet, flat-footed posi-
tion as Mercury for the Virgil class, though, it must be added, his social suc-
cesses with the fair ones, after Northfield learned the meaning of fnorsoizality,
are astounding. After lllllCll heavy-browed pondering and 1n11eh exercising of his
cfum-laude brain, he has decided that Amherst, rather than the Barber's College
of the City of New York, will be the next place to enjoy his seriously droll Com-

HARRY H. BANKS Good Govermlzent Winthrop, Massachusetts
. . . if he always clouts . . .
"So," commencement week-end CEIIIIC for Harry Banks, too! VVell, he earned
it. Harry has been a good worker among Hermonites. His steadiness has
helped him make the goal, many others will say his cheery smile helped them.
The achievement of graduation, however, is a minor detail of his Hermon experi-
ences, for if he always clouts his jobs as he has clubbed socecr balls with his feet,
the result will be success,-and Harry Banks.

. . . lighter frivolities of the faster life . . .
He was born and bred on the self-same hill, was leigh Barrus. And indeed,
he has been thc true-born Hermonite in all senses of the word. Never was he
given to the lighter frivolities of the faster life at Hermon, nor to over-exhaustion
because of study, nor to l11ldllC excitement about his operatic achievements, but,
he did so love his Latin. Leigh, unlike his scientific father, says, "Science is not
for lll0,-1,111 going to be a friend to man." He is od for Muskingum College in
tl1c middle west to complete the job that Hermon began.

. . . excruciating propensity to make . . .
Ingens Sarpedon! Because of his Ichabod Crane proportions, his surprising
naivete concerning Latin derivations, his daring capriciousness in adairs both
mental and emotional, and his downright good heart, Art Beane has held a place
of kindly regard and pleasant memory among his fellows on the Hill. Since he
believes Harvard's accent will affect him but little, he intends there to pursue his
way to medicine. But Art is really serious when his friends allow it. His excru-
ciating propensity to make fun out of puns shows him to be a true seeker of
knowledge. Whatever happens, he will always be a large man, both physically
and intellectually-Ingens Sarpedon!

The lord of the meats and drinks of the fourth-floor Triumvirate, the knight of
the coffee percolator, and master of wit, humor, and simile is Vernon Beatty.
His size is big, his achievements are many, and his friends are without number.
Famed has he become for being the only fellow in school to be able to carry about
the overgrown Fourth-of-July horn and get synchronized noises from it. Fi-
nances of the H ermonite and the Class of 1932 have been skillfully handled by the
meticulous red head. Found among his pet aversions are Latin, Mathematics,
good old Sam, his "wife's" aifairs, and human sponges. He leaves Hermon to
make new friends where they sing, "Pm a son of a-son of a-son of old R. P. I."

. . . classmates . . . thought . . .
There is always something to admire in the fellow who handles a thirty-hour
schedule well. And Stu's interest in writing and in books of nature and poetry
makes him dear to the memory of those who have known him. Because he likes
to see men with their shirt collars open and dressed rather in overalls than in
tuxedos, some of his classmates have thought him slovenlyg yet being truthfully
natural is the only crime of which he can plead guilty. The college of Cayuga's
waters will enjoy his friendly smile in the future, and another of Hermon's medi-
cally inclined literary men goes to tread the cloistered halls of fame.

When the gods blessed Garry Boetsma, what a perfectly amazing job they
made-of the blessing! Keen intellectual capacity has made him, not exactly lazy,
but somewhat averse to extra exertion. His soccer gifts are known to all, and
even his father takes pictures of him, aptly called "a one-man soccer team!"
Discerning judgment and a way with men have won him many friends and given
him charge of initiations and banquets. Moore Cottage has proiered diversion

. . . Take Virgil's advice . . .
For the steadiness which erratic classmates often need, for the twinkling hu-
mor of grey-blue eyes and a meaningful smile, for a good friend-no better can
be found than Danny Bowman. He never set the North River afire with the
ardent learnings of intellectual flame, his achievements in athletics have not been
outstanding, as a Pierian he has always been content with what some more
ambitious fellow would call a "back seat", yet his quiet way of doing the not-too-
easy tasks of Mount Hermon men has shown his classmates that Danny is always
there. Take Virgi1's advice, Dan: "Only keep on, and whither the way leads you,
there direct your course."

. . . friendly . . . ambitious . . . brilliant . . .
Leaving the roar of the big guns of the Pacific Coast Battle Fleet for an edu-
cation, Jean decided to come East and see for himself the world-famous active
volcanoes of Prof. Thiebaud, and he has seen them. While scholarship has been
his main objective at Mount Hermon, this talented youth has by no means
allowed business to interfere with pleasure, for at the Seminary he is known
as the one and only man capable of holding two or more girls at the same time.
Friendly, ambitious, and brilliant besides having a most pleasing personality, he
is certain to become by way of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute one of the fore-
most of the country's architectural engineers.

VAL CAssaLs Montgomery, Alabama
. . . 'might have been lost among . . .
Somehow or other this young son of the South, like another drawling Ala-
baman, managed to convince the "powers" that he could graduate in one year.
There were so many who aspired in the same way as he that in the rush which
followed classification he might have been lost among the ranks of the eighty-odd
seniors,-but he wasn't,-not Val. He stayed right with us, and with us learned
the story of the "happy man" and the "thoughtful man." He combines them
both and sets out to conquer ---.

he that five different musical organizations needed his assistance. Who has not
seen him toting his folding canoe around the campus? One might even think that
he were a fitting son of musical Apollo, yet he claims no Olympian descent. Al-
though he has enjoyed being a Hermonite for only one year and a member of the
Class of '32 for but a few short months, Ed has earned the coveted sheepskin
which will be for him a stepping stone to further education-but we don't know

. . . was high scorer in a kissing game . . .
The barber shop-two Hermonites waiting-a pile of variously-colored hair in
the corner-"Conrad had a haircut-I.ookit!" His hair, typical of the boy, was
just a bit different. VVith the exception of a football captaincy, a touchdown, a
chapel cut, a spirit-committee job, a heavy schedule, and an unexpected classi-
fication at midyear, Red did nothing unusual in his senior year. One-eyed Conol-
ley crashed the gates of the Tunney-Dempsey fight, but Red crashed those of a
Junior party-and was high scorer in a kissing game. Rensselaer, it pays to
advertise in the Hermon-ite. Red has decided to build bridges.

Though a Cooke. In it are given the following rules for attaining the heights of
fame: flj Room with Van Riper. Q25 Revel in frisking around a pond on all

DAVID P. CURRIER Lancaster, New Hampshire
. . . Mount Hermon Mili-tery-ble Band . . .
I come from New Hampshire where God makes men. As a musician, I can
not be beaten. I am always in demand by the famed Mount Hermon dance band
to do 1ny duty to "Tiger Rag" and "Business in F" on my trustworthy little
clarinet. But, I am too good. I can't associate with a mere dance band. So, I
confine my musical talent to the Mount Hermon Sympathy Orchestra and the
Mount Hermon Mili-tery-ble Band. Not wishing to embarrass the Athletic
Association by handing out all of its "H's" and prizes to me, I have kindly re-
frained from all sports. May Hermon prosper after my graduation.

in the hand of none other than that of Edwin Currier, who is an excellent di-
rector, both here and across the river. Ed sure can make himself envied by Pan,
for he is a brilliant cornetist, and in the future he will probably decorate the first
chair of some symphony orchestra. Among his pet hobbies are found wrestling,
basketball, and the playing of the bass tuba. He has made many fast friends
during his stay with us, and our best wishes go with him to Tufts.

Still water runs deep-so do the thoughts of Dick Davis. His quiet, unassum-
ing manner has won for him a host of friends. Through this quiet manner he
gained the admiration of the custodian of the books, and is one of the few to
retain this position of trust under the custodian for three years. Among his
hobbies are found I.atin and Trig. . . . Dick has gained much from Hermon's
softening influences. Indeed, he even attends Chapel regularly, eats peas with
his knife, and is able to quote Sam Johnson by the hour. He is rather quiet, but
his classmates have found conversation with him well worthy of attention.

a break! Dick believes in a liberal education: his regular attendance at East
Hall has been supplemented by many a correspondence course, he has proved
proficient as an executive, student deacon, artist, chaperon for I.'Hommy and
the Duke when they leave campus, and kindergarten instructor fhis greatest suc-
cess being in singing Buster to sleepj. Rumor has it that Dick's ambition is to
design the new Overtoun when he 'is graduated from Rensselaer.

. . . . he begauto fight . . .
Charlie has a very good memory, but he can't remember the day he came to
Mount Hermon. The paradox was explained when it became known that Mount
Hermon was the very first thing that he saw. Since that time, however, C. I.. has
seen much and many on the Hill and off, and many have seen much of him. At
a tender age he began to fight the fiddle, but many appreciative audiences can
testify that the fiddle has long ago found its master. He has determined to "go
Brown," and before a sunny smile like his the difficulties should all melt away.
VVe know, there, as here, he will be a competent president of clubs and councils,
a manly comrade, and a staunch friend.

. . . study hour became his ojice hour . . .
Ilarry, Hal, Harold, Dunny, Dunham, or had he another, yet, it was not his
name but his great love for science and math. He detested English, disliked
lfrench, struggled through History, and dropped Latin. Study hour became his
office hour as general adviser and solver of problems. His door was never barred
and suffered from the constant use of answer seekers. They kept him busy.
Problems in any math or any science he always solved. As laboratory assistant
he made all Silliman his work shop and kept each prof wondering where this or
that had last been placed. His father, a Hermon graduate, sought unknown
laurels on the mission field in China, now Hal leaves Hermon to explore and
solve the problems of the field of science.

. . . The farm is prospering . . .
Every year for a number of years Bill came back to Hermon. And every year
he contrived to attract the marked attention of rulers and great men. When life
became too perplexing in Overtoun or West Hall, these great men invariably
suggested the doctrine of the old philosopher: Back to nature. The farm is
prospering, and the Campus never looked more beautiful. Nevertheless, Bill has
found the time to entertain the rulers, great men, and the rest of us with song in
Choir and Quartet, or across the footlights. Is it all this that has made him the
sturdiest in the football line, the most equable among friends, and the favored one
among our "c0usins"?

Ray, small in stature, which is counterbalanced, however, by a wisdom far be-

judgment, his unfailing cheerfulness, and his genial smile are an encouragement
to many. We who know him best are aware of his scintillating wit and un-

Philo play and the helpless widow of the melodramatic The Wolf at the Door,
others will remember him for his ability to translate Latin, while all of us will
remember him as one who gave a helping hand or a cheery word when it was
needed. As he passes on to new fields of endeavor, it is certain he will gain many
friends and many honors. Good luck, Ray!

Camp Hall without Bob is as tragic as a bottle of ale without its pop. For
skillful handling of ropes, of lights, or of his roommate, Bob never met his match.
He has often said, "Me and Steve! and everything will be all jake." It was Bob
that summoned every Hermon son to prayers by ringing the big bell: that seldom
went to Chapel: and that once gave a nickel fa lead onej to charity flast name
unknownj. He drank coffee: he ate doughnuts: he used pencils: but never his
own. Bob will long be remembered,-he had so kind a face.

As a sincere follower and admirer of the Muses, Dick spent many hours be-
fore their thrones. However, not entirely satisfied with that land of fancy, he
also laid his heart at the feet of a fair young damsel at Gould. Although of an
extremely conservative and a rather upright nature, he indulged in two vices:
every afternoon found him either striving to outdo the finny tribe in its particu-
lar form of activity or dreaming of designing homes, skyscrapers, and even
cathedrals. With such dreams in mind, he will soon blend his voice with those
who sing "far above Cayuga's waters."

stately form, but few know his high ideals and lofty aspirations, since he makes

to the Senior Class. He owes much of his success to his regularity in attending
West Hall. The old adage that great oaks from little acorns grow is particu-

made famous by the Stein Song.

in and across the river. But then the success of a fisherman is often due to his
line, yet, the only place Ned tooted his own horn was in the organization known
as the Loyal Sons of Discord.

Some four years ago came little John Thomas MacFarlane to Mount Hermon.
Since then his growth in achievements has far surpassed his growth in body.
In scholarship Mac has done sufficient justice to himself, while sports too have
found in him a keen competitor during the past few years. What has probably
made Mac especially popular on the Hill has been his natural good humor in
classes, in athletics, and in club fellowship. John goes to Conn. Aggie for pre-
medical training in preparation for Harvard Medical School. By compact, Mac
is to become an undertaker if medicine has no allure for him, while another '32
embryonic medico will supply him with trade.

person, who enjoys beauty in all its forms, who ponders on subjects which few
people besides philosophers ever consider, and who possesses a vocabulary not
unlike that of Samuel Johnson. This dreaming made George somewhat absent-
minded, however, when he realized this fault, he speedily endeavored to correct
this professor-like weakness, and now he meets all chores comme il faut. What-

. . . His punctilious vocabulary-his salutations . . .
The real relationship between Newt and his senior classmates began last fall
when he displayed his vigorous audacity and grit on the gridiron. Since that
time his winning smile, together with his punctilious vocabulary and the original
manner in which he extends his salutations, makes us regret his departure. In
passing, we cannot fail to state our admiration of the diligence and perseverance
with which Newt has proficiently applied himself. From now on we may meet
him at any time or at any place as he intends to study foreign trade at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania. Good luck, Pal. Here's looking up your address at

According to definition, an atom is a unit of matter, the smallest portion of an
element or compound which retains its identity in character with the substance
in mass, or it is the smallest portion of a substance that moves about as a whole.
Steve, it can be truthfully said, is a unit of matter. QExactly what form of matter
we have not been able to ascertain, but as Shakespeare says, "It matters little."j
There is no doubt about his being small, and he certainly retains his character
when mingling with a large group. As to the latter portion of the definition, it
is safe to say that he generally moves as a whole. Yes, Steve resembles an
atom, but what an atom, one of such vibrant vitality and dazzling demeanor that
to give him such a title is to elevate the lonely atom to heights hitherto unknown.
His war cry? Naturally, "Up and Atom!"

. . . the alluring Comtesse Dc Bcaurien . . .
Nothing troubled Jerry so much as sitting still. Cheerful exuberance bubbled
from his heart, while his countenance radiated vibrant vitality. Yet withal he
was a level-headed youngster, intent upon accomplishing his goal-to kiss every
girl in Northfield. As training for his football and track activities, and as a
method of showing his love and faithfulness to Dan, Jerry was wont to make
line plunges on buttons and slashing end-runs on the sleeves of shirts in ye famed
laundry. Yet all his strenuous labors stood him in good stead, for it gave him
that sylph-like figure displayed as the alluring Comtesse De Beaurien in the
Senior Play, where according to the "King" all he had to do to do others was to

brown hair, comes smiling through the crowd always ready to return a joke,
join in a song, or take a walk through the woods with his friends. We have seen
a certain member of the fair sex visit Hermon's campus, and then our G. G. was

Wes came to Hermon from the wilds of Connecticut in conquest, with the rest
of us, of that seemingly greased apparition, knowledge. He seems to have at-
tained his desire and his goal, but there were times when he digressed from the
grind of achieving dear perceptions of truth. Inside information has it that he
displayed much chivalry towards certain folk, and that the weight of the daily
mail to East Northfield increased at least a pound soon after his arrival. Wes
has wielded a wicked paint brush in his endeavors to place his art among the
most distinguished works of Hermon artists, but he now insists that he wants to
relinquish his artistic abilities and join the rank of great Hermonites of the

Alice in Wonderland could bestow no more bountiful gifts on her lover than
Walter's Alice lavished upon him. For she it was who enabled him to revel in
the epicurean delights of Dwight's Home while his fellow club-members peeked
at rarebit in West Hall. True, he was a sailor in home port. Yet,'let it be said
that he was loyal to his roommate, Bruce Andrews, that he courted Polyhymnia
in the Choir, and that he piloted the dazzlingly fast vehicles of the farm. Indus-
trious to the point of perfection, earnest in his labors, he toiled night and day
that his name might also be numbered among the immortal Class of '32.

A champion at scrouging,-he made the All-Overtoun Team. He says that,
if he could have controlled with a little more precision the flight of a certain little
white sphere, he could have the better walked the imaginary yet very real limit
line. Every one, whether he knows him or not, has a great deal of respect for
him and his ability in tossing around so successfully those weights on the ends of
his legs. It is very difficult, people say, for him to swim because of the length
of those said weights,-they drag on bottom all the time. Be that as it may, Seth
knows his apples and will make good at New Hampshire, where he goes next

just being oneself-but is our Rex amusing? No, but very entertaining, to say
the least, is he. VVho can forget those haircuts that crowned him through his one
year with us? The very portals of Wesleyan will grin when this young son of

cheery "Howdy" and his good temper soon won him many friends. His ambi-

. . . "All things come to him who waits" . . .
The South has always been noted for its gentlemen, and Virginia, not wishing
to forfeit her reputation, brought forth our Bill. Except on the gridiron, where
he valiantly fought for the glory of '32, he has never been known to hurry, but
why should he? For by following his motto, "All things come to him who waits,"
he has never failed in attaining his goal. With his Winsome smile and southern
drawl, which have proved irresistible to several maidens of New York and Bos-
ton, he has captivated the adections of a little lady at Revell. Bill is planning
to "trip the light fantastic" at Penn for four years, after which he will become
an oflicial of his "blue heaven," the Pennsylvania Railroad.

life and women. Well-liked and respected not wholly on account of scholastic

By personal preference Fran's outstanding ability is centered in basketball,

However, though his stay on the Hill has been comparatively short, Fran has
acquired, through his originality of ideas, his ambitious diligence, and his con-
genial nature, together with his ever-ready smile, the friendship and the respect
of his fellow students. And so, as Fran relinquishes his hold on Hermon, or
conversely, as the case may be, and departs for Rensselaer, we are certain that
his aptitude for scientific research will be successfully developed.

Ham, always with a smile and a song to greet you! Ham's determination to
fulfill his father's place as a singer has been made evident at Hermon. On
Glee Club trips he was always chosen to lead the school songs and cheers. At
his club activities, in his dormitory, and in the Senior Play he was one of the
leaders. Not only in social life was Ham active and popular, but also on the
athletic field, where he proved his mettle. His popularity spread to the fair sex,
who exclaimed, "If the beautiful country of the Thousand Islands produces men
like Ham, send us more from there!" In your position as a surgeon, Ham, do
not weaken too many fair hearts.

here he has never had scholastic troubles, and he has disclosed great athletic
ability. These facts, together with his charming personality, make him an out-
standing charactcr and Inarked man. As we confidently relinquish our hold on

spicuously enrich that southern university.

His folks did not know what to do with this precocious breaker of fair hearts,
so they sent him to Hermon for the suffocation of his ardor. But instead of
breaking school records as was their intention for him, Tommie has kept Cupid's
wings ever fluttering between here and East Northheldg and, what is more, he
has ruined the digestion of more than one fellow senior with his morning buns.
Tommie has been seen much in the glare of the spotlight in both cross-country
and repartee. Whether our baker boy enters Harvard or Columbia, we advise
the coach to keep him away from sweetmeats, if he really wants to make of
Tommie the Olympic runner that he might be.

Thoughts of this commencement time
N ki....- have occupied our minds for many a
day. Four years of labor are now be-
. ing rccompcnsed. A momentous oc-
casion, indeed! It is fitting, therefore, that you,
our friends and our relatives, should be with us
today,-fitting, because to you, no less than to us,
belong the honors of the triumph, fitting, be-
cause we could not be entirely happy if you were
not here to share with us the joys of the mo-
ment. Need words of greeting be said? You,
our loved ones, know that in the heart
of each member of the class of 1932
there is a welcome for you. Thus we,
who are about to graduate, salute you,
you our understanding guests!
This week-end marks a fresh start
for us. It should likewise mark the
continuation of plans which were laid
down when we were born. We are not
writing Finis at the end of the book of
our lives. We are merely placing a pe-
riod at the end of the final sentence of
that chapter entitled Preliminaries. We shall
then go on, for, after all, we have much to learn.
lVe have only begun our preparation for the
Great Task, and we may not stop.
Just as an author pauses at the end of each
chapter to collect his ideas before beginning the
next one, so we, the class of 1932, are using this
graduation time as a period during which we
may consider both the road travelled and that
which lies ahead of us.
Our experiences in the past should be step-
ping stones,--not stumbling blocks. Other
speakers will probably tell you about those ex-
periences with abundance of detail. What we
shall profit from them depends entirely upon
the individual person. We like to think that no
member of our class has lived on this Hill with-
out catching that spirit of self-forgetfulness
which has directed our teachers in lending us
a guiding hand. And of our future? The bur-
den of its responsibility rests also on the shoul-
ders of each particular man. What we shall be
in the days to come is, to a great extent, a ques-
No longer, however, can we live a life of iso-
lation. The world is being confronted
by new problems every minute,-prob-
lems that nothing but cooperation can
common welfare are needed. We must
forsake our self-centerednessg and we
must take an interest in the affairs not
7 solve. Men willing to work for the
only of our town or our country, but of
the Universal Community as well. By
so doing, we shall have acted according
to the expectations of our fellow men,
who, like us, are integral parts of our
family. Yes, the day will come when our serv-
ices shall be asked for. What we shall be then
will be decided by our response to that demand.
In the meantime, we hope, and we likewise get
This is our Class Day,-one of a few days
of rest in a journey leading to Preparation,-
a journey begun not four years ago, but the
very instant we came into being. We, the class
of 1932, are taking stock of things accomplished
and of things yet to be achieved. No wonder
we are full of joy. Nor is it any wonder that
we, the class of 1932, want you, relatives and
friends, to share with us this-our great day.
This day, and the few that are to follow,
marks the end of yet another school year for us
all, and for us-the graduating class-the end
of our stay at Mount Hermon. We linger but
a day or two in parting.
It is pleasant thus to linger in good company,
and to contemplate a task bravely begun, a duty
honestly performed, an aspiration honorably at-
tained. It is pleasant to remember the many
who have done much for us, and to give them
heartfelt, though inadequate, thanks, It is
pleasant, also, to conjure up pictures of
past school years. We, who are about
to leave, see these pictures in our mind's
eye, closely knit together and inter-
woven, appearing as a rich tapestry on
the walls of our chamber of memories.
The warp of this tapestry is our long
years spent at Mount Hermon, and the
woof is our experiences: our trials, our
disappointments and our successes here,
-these together forming bright and
brighter pictures with a varying back-
ground of our life on this campus: the clamorous
athletic field, the solitude of our rooms, the
bustling activity of the workhour, the inspiring
meditation of Memorial Chapel.
As we look at this tapestry and at tl1e vivid
pictures represented there, more vivid than those
which hapless Araehne wrought, we see some
that attract our especial attention. Some are
bright, others are sombre. One shows in clear
outline our arrival at Mount Hermon,--in itself
an insignificant fact, but far-reaching in its con-
sequences. Another brings before us an unself-
ish sacrifice for a comrade, which made of the
comrade a friend. Further on, we notice a som-
bre one: the failing of a trust, bitterly regret-
ted, or a bright one: the realization of a hope,
giving us courage to go on. Yes, we behold one
being woven even as we gaze. It gives promise
of becoming a bright one. It represents to-
Pleasant though it may be to recall bygone
events, and though We do well to cherish them
to brighten our way, if this be all we have
gained from our stay at Mount Hermon, our
years have been spent in vain. A photographic
plate can record and preserve pictures
better than the human mind. Neither
came we to Mount Hermon to accumu-
late undigested, though imposing, ar-
rays of facts in order that we might re-
peat such facts as they were given to
us. A dictaphone can serve that pur-
pose more efficiently and more accu-
rately than we.
What, then, did we expect to find on
this hilltop? We came in order that we
might gain wisdom. But what is wis-
dom? It is the power to think sanely, soundly,
wisely, to see life, not in narrow sections, but
as a unit. It is the capacity of understanding.
It is the power to analyze, to discriminate, to
separate the essential from the nonessential, to
decide and to act in the crises of life upon the
highest, the best, the noblest ideals.
Many centuries ago, Socrates said: "It is a
bad thing not to know, but it is a thousand times
worse not to know what we do not know." At
Mount Hermon, we have learned
much. We have learned that many 'YQ
of the evils in our world are a result
of a fundamental cause: that we do

Former class historians have almost invari-
ably, and with no little subtlety, apologized for
the scarcity of extraordinary happenings inti-
mately connected with the sojourn of their re-
spective classes at Hermon. Not so with the
class of 1932. We can proudly say that we
have made history.
We have been defeated in sports, not once or
twice, but several times. Consider, for instance,
the rope-pull. On two memorable occasions, we
were ruthlessly dragged through the muddy wa-
ters of Shadow Lake in spite of our struggles.
In soccer, we did little better 5 and even in
hockey we were reluctantly compelled
to yield the victory to another class.
It was reserved for our football team,
fortunately, to cover us with well-de-
served glory, A series of uninterrupted
triumphs gave us the championship.
Track, cross-country, baseball, and bas-
ketball have also been the means of
proving the mettle of our men. The
question, however, is not whether we
have lost or won, but whether we have learned
a lesson from our experiences both in the gym-
nasium and on the athletic field. Victories in
sports have given us new zest, and have aroused
in us dormant desires for equal successes in
other phases of our life on the Hill. Defeats
have strengthened our unity. Down today, and
up tomorrow! But we have stood together at all
Looking back upon the many bright spots in
our social life, we regretfully dismiss the
memories of bygone parties with the Semites.
We must not forget, moreover, the two parties
that we celebrated with the young ladies from
Stoneleigh. At this point, too, we gladly pay
tribute to our class teachers. Their help to us
in this respect, as in all others, has been invalu-
able. It is historically true that, through their
combined forces, and our own efforts, we have
been able to increase the scope of our social ac-
tivities. We thus congratulate ourselves on the
fact that we have enjoyed a few more privileges
than several of the classes immediately pre-
Not for us the master minds! In the class of
1932, however, every man had at least the aver-
age share of mental capacity. Our scholastic
record has not been of the highest, but it is an
excellent testimony to what persever-
ance and hard work can do. We are
naturally proud of this record, for it is
a tangible result of our labors. Every
one has contributed to it the best that
was in him.
Now we have come to the end of our
stay in Hermon. Between the group
that registered their names in Holbrook
four years ago and the group that very
soon shall cease to be known as the
Senior Class there lie oceans of differences. We
are no longer strangers to each other. At work,
at play, in the classroom, we have had the op-
portunity to make friends. Many of these
friendships will last a lifetime. Others will
soon be forgotten. Still, we shall always re-
member Hermon and all that it stands for. We
have grown older, and our ways of thinking
have taken a new trend,-altogether different,
in fact, from that of four years ago. Imper-
ceptible though this change may be, it has been
wrought in us none the less. Hence, it is not in
vain that we keep in common such a large store
of precious memories. We cannot forget them.
They constitute the history of the class of 1932.
We are the class. Q

Youth! The watchword of the past three
decades,-the watchword of eons of time! Na-
tions, empires, the World have laid their foun-
dations upon the infallible creature youth!
They have risen but never fallen on this foun-
dation. It has established a precedent for itself,
-that of being unfailing. Today, this cry es-
pecially concerns us. The effects of the World
War upon the nations in their entirety have been
so derogatory that at present we perceive that
not only we, but other hapless empires,
have been engulfed in the most discourag-
ing economic depletion in the annals of
history. Now, youth,-to you the torch is
flung,-the eyes of the world are upon
you, these are the heart-rending cries with
no abatement. Ministers, political leaders,
-righteous political leaders,-business
administrators, and social service workers
are beseeching us youths to come to their
aid and to succor the helpless.
During preceding centuries, each successive
generation has been content to place a few more
blocks upon the building-blocks of time, and
well founded was this satisfaction, for support-
ing it all lay, is lying-and ever shall lie,-a
strong, immovable foundation of experience and
precedent. Yet upon that has risen a somewhat
spacious, resplendent, and gaudy structure, such
as extreme laxity in crime laws and unwonted
freedom of political chieftains,-a structure
which has stood the test of many vicissitudes,
but which is slowly deteriorating under the so-
cial, religious, and economic pressure brought to
It is not in the least condemnatory to say
that those of antecedent generations have come
to recognize the desire, fancies, and fallacies in
this ostentatious edifice, and are giving us the
prerogative of engineering a new contract. They
have fought the good fight and have spent their
all, and, if they could but be young again, now,
the world may rest assured that the structure
would be of finer mettleg but God has willed
that We live but one life! Therefore, let us pull
down the empty walls to the very foundation
itself,-forever ostracizing those things
which are not lovely and of good report
and start anew, constructing, by demon-
stration of our veritable worthiness, some
things such as the eyes, the sense, the very
soul of man have never before seen, or
shall ever be forced to behold rereared in
future times. They recognize us! Let us
live! Live-knowing all the while that
proud eyes and thankful hearts are watch-
ing our spades clear the debris to build,
thereupon, a strong, unprecedented, unfailing
tower of strength and resource.
Thus, to you of the class of 1933, we of 1932
present this spade,-even as the members of
1890 donated it to those of 1891,-even as
grandfather to father, and father to son. And
we sincerely hope that you as the welcoming, the
salutatorian class of Mr. Speer's administration
will continue to forge ahead in your energetic
ventures, will establish a precedent for ensuing
classes-even as we have endeavored to do, and
will stamp your numerals 1933 indelibly upon
the minds not only of those about you, but of
those Within you.

This paper, let it be understood, is the
accurate result of scientific experiment.
X It has been calculated that, if one could
move far enough from the earth in a
brief enough period of time and could see far
enough, it would be possible to re-view events of
years ago. Some time ago, the possibility of
reversing this process occurred to meg and, after
many weary months of research and experiment,
I finally found the solution and succeeded in
projecting my vision into the future. For the

Clive Brook, alias Jean Carter, has just won
the world-wide contest for the design of the

A newspaper headline! Lefty Williams, with
his well-known bent for being misunderstood,
has spent a week telling the police, "I didn't do
it." Naturally he didn'tg we knew he would
not, at least he did not mean to.
I visit the Chicago church of Deacon Dick
Demarest, who has taken lately to preaching
radical sermons. The services have become
noted for many disorders, necessitating the use
of an ecclesiastical bouncer, a position which is
well-filled by Ken Allan, who seems to delight
in punting the disturbers out. It seems that
some real excitement is anticipated when I look
in upon the scene. Huddled in a group I recog-
nize Red May, Wally Johnson, Bowman,
Kauffman, and Rouse,-a motley and tough-
looking lot. They are all armed with that well-
known fruit native to Chicago-pineapples.
Next I see a huge gray-stone mansion, sur-
rounded by a high wall. It is maintained by the
State. Holden is still in the printing business
and carries on his chosen profession behind iron-
latticed windows printing auto license plates.
His previous venture, when he tried imitating
U. S. engravings, was unsuccessful.
Mahatma Bob Finefrock on a recent trip to

I recently presented a nice blue ticket to
Pulis, the great, incomparable heart-
breaker. What a trail of broken hearts
he has left behind him since the days
on the Hill. He, incidentally, is a den-
tist-a boring fellow.
Farevaag, the big handsome boy, has
followed his hobby-forestry. The
J U. S. Forestry Service uses him to hold
up the giant sequoia trees of the West
during these tempests.
Jerry Powers, whose rare dramatic ability
during his school days caused him to be drafted
into the theatre, is still there. He is respon-
sible for regulating the drafts on the furnace.
In the distance, I see a skyscraper. I enter.
Upon a glass door are the words :-John
Schmitt, President. "How did you do it, John?"
I asked. "I didn't," said he. In a word all
he has done since he left the beloved hilltop
is, as he put it, "I only tried to do whatever
job I had better than it had ever been done
Charlie Drury is deaconing in Trick's church.
Trick is seen receiving the offering from the
hands of Charlie, who deftly retrieves the half
dollar he always leads off with.
Across the street, is a quick-lunch place run
by Phil Merriam and George Milton. Phil and
George have engaged Fox, the famous artist,
to make for their counter a gorgeous poster of
two luscious hot dogs.
The newspaper of the day, dated June 28th,
1947, carries an interesting classified ad read-

the same paper, is Arthur CForcepsQ Medlyn.
And speaking of newspapers, I am reminded to
tell you that a new batch of those eruptions
known as tabloids has come into existence. On
the newsstands, one sees the Linfield Rake and
the Eastman Scream,-but then newsstands sell
many things besides newspapers.
Parker Kimball's pulchritude was bound to get
him into mischief, the Rake is running a serial
about his heart affairs. The advertising pages
of the Screamistir my memory :--Casselsls Cas-

The tendency of legal firms to in-
dulge in long corporate names is worse
than it was. Here is the announcement I
of a firm of lawyers-Soutra, Summers-

Capone, Nash, Sacco Sz Vanzetti, Ltd.
Next I look into a modern chemical labora-
tory. The genius Dunham has just produced
smokeless and odorless tobacco. What a boon
to the student generation! Some of his more
famous patents are a noiseless soup spoon and
an invisible tricolator. Barrus, as Dunham's as-
sociate, is seeking a drug for the hypodermic
administration of knowledge. He says he never
did like the old-fashioned method of acquiring
What's this I see? A huge electric sign read-

There goes a familiar figure. A man shuf-
fling leisurely along the street with a sign'on
his back, and another in front of him. The sign
reads Thompson Thompsorfs Digestible

he is learning the advertising business from the
Two of my classmates have reached the
heights of success in business by watching out
for their scents. They are in the perfumery

Lincoln, Nebraska, and Gomez in Havana.
The newest magazine of fun Creal nice funj
is edited by him who, paradoxically, was the
most serious during his school days-MacFar-

of his magazine with a picture of a huge

high speed by your Seer through the

-,I The fifth dimensional focal projector
is not perfect, and I find the power fad-

1932. Life's stream runs swiftly enough, and
we shall all see in actuality in 1947 what I saw
through the mechanical eyes of science. I shall
look up those of you whom I could not visit on
this occasion as soon as a new supply of power
is received for my FDF projector.
My projector principle is a really versatile
medium, Not only can I look into the future,
but at such times I have the power to look back
15 years to today from tl1e vantage point of
1947. Then I see in retrospect the principal
and the faculty of our beloved Alma Mater. My
view is softened and broadened by the years. I
see them as they really are. Self-sacrificing,
unselfish, patient, pathetically eager to help un-
appreciative youth. I see them misunderstood
and underestimated. And my heart
yearns for the chance to live over again
my Hermon years and make a little less
mess of things.

President 'S Address
Like unto a traveller in the desert wastes,
this day has been a distant mirage of hopes and
dreams that has shimmered before our eyes.
Converging from varied cities and environments,
as strangers, acquaintances, classmates,-friends
for many weeks and months, we have labored on
what oftentimes seemed to be a laborious, mo-
notonous, endless journey. Today is truly one
of our dearest hopes,-one of our dreams come
true. Here, having attained the exhilaration of
the foothills, it may be appropriate that we
pause on this plateau of refreshment and en-
couragement. For, to a moderate extent, we
have succeeded in overcoming the obstacles
which presented themselves between us and the
acquiring of our diplomas.
Now let us turn our eyes upward to the tasks
which lie ahead. With humbleness in our de-
meanor, let us be confident in our powers, realiz-
ing from the experience of those who have gone
before that those deeds which have been done,
we also can do. Our job is to do them better.
In this generation of greater opportunity and
greater responsibility, we remember that the
man who would succeed is the man who will
work a little longer,-a little harder than the
next fellow. In an era that is oversupplied with
men power, we hear the loud cry for individual
man power,-for men of vision, men of char-
acter, men who are capable of leading nations
into new eras of living. The question we face
is whether we shall so train ourselves that we
may initiate enterprises or be content to be led
by others. And, in taking the lead, we have
learned that the things which are good are ap-
preciated by all , that the decisions which within
our hearts we know to be right are the ones we
shall ultimately receive credit for carrying out.
Thus amid the perplexities, the drab sordid-
ness, the undesirable situations so evident in the
world today, we endeavor to adapt ourselves and
our cherished idealism to the practicalities of
life, always, however, striving to retain those
ideals and qualities which shall keep our hearts
responsive to the best in life. For the vision of
an ideal plus the courage to work for its attain-
ment has made not only the characters of Wash-
ington and Lincoln, but also the characters of all
truly great men. It can also make you and me.
Here on this hilltop, we have come into daily
contact with men of inspiration,-men with good
hearts and good minds,-men whose names are
frequently on our lips,-men who by their noble
purpose have enshrined themselves within our
hearts. The inspiration of their lives, towering
like Monadnock oier the surrounding hills and
valleys, is the first to reflect the Hush of the
dawn of our dreams,-the longest to retain the
benediction of Godis setting sun on accomplish-
ments well performed. Their challenge to us
is to continue our journey,-to continue to as-
cend to still higher peaks. As we leave this
mount we love, may the memories smoulder-
ing in our hearts, the warm glow of our precious
friendship here, the flame of unquenchable
comradeship be a mountain beacon ever guid-
ing, ever beckoning, ever summoning Y '
us to that height where the ideals UE
of heaven become the realities of .4""", i

Gone are those early Autumn days
When the sun shone on youthful hearts,
Even that sun itself spreads rays
Now brightly deep, as its course it starts.
Winter's bitterness, too, has passed
From the being of emotions' seat.
Spite, hate, and blindness have at last
Melted away,-the time was fleet!
Spring days have smiled on wiser hearts
Than those which greeted once the Fall ,
The lessons taught, a class imparts
One thought, enduring, best of all:
The towered chapel crowns this Hermon Hill,
Reaching to God, yet smiling down goodwill
Upon the men who people Hermon's height.
It stands, and bids each Hermon man good morning-and good night.

not know what we do not know. We are im-
bued with a desire to remedy this condition
in ourselves and in others that the world may
profit, even as we profit, by this our knowledge.
The beginning of wisdom is the fulfillment of
the admonition contained in two simple words,
Know thyself! The words are easily spoken
and easily remembered, but require the cease-
less struggle of a fearless life to make reality.
For in each one of us there are dark crevices,
hidden nooks, and unopened doors. Fair treas-
ures may be hidden there, or flaws to be cor-
rected and monsters to be slain. Before we 'can
understand- or know others, we must indeed
know ourselves, the bad in us to be suppressed,
the good to be cultivated. No struggle is
harder, no victory so' great. He who overcomes
himself will conquer the world.
Yet once more we see in our mind's eye the
tapestry in our chamber of memories, bearing
the pictures of the past. The tapestry is not
finished, for, as we look, new scenes are be-
ing added. The warp,-that is our long years
yet to come,-reaches on into our chamber of
expectations. The materials for making a mar-
velous tapestry are there, dim in the obscurity
of the future. Skillful, tireless, conscientious
workmen are needed to fill in the Woof of that
tapestry, to weave pictures of beauty, of true
worth. We must be those workmen, each in his
own chamber of expectations, weaving the
threads of our lives with our deeds, to form an
ever-lengthening tapestry. Let us work, then,
with all the wisdom and all the understanding
we have acquired here, so that, as we weave each
day an always brighter scene from the ever-
shortening threads in our chamber of expecta-
tions, every picture may be pleasing to our-
selves, and to our fellow men, and, as that final
scene is completed, that our tapestry may be
pleasing to Him, our Master.

Steering each its rather sturdy craft of friendship through seas of adverse criticism, the six clubs
have finally weathered out the storm and reached quieter waters. Having outridden the changing
winds of debate and as a result having been faced with the question of which course to follow for
future sailing days, they have all remained silent trusting time to solve the riddle.
lint, while time is working this wonder, the clubs have not been docked witll lowered sails. Many
of the captains directed the course of their crafts to shores of nearby mountainous islands of interest

crews go forth and spend the day in
months later all the clubs found them-
it was that they sailed into one of the
the year, a club party with the com-
fellowship. When later the life on
literary, governmental. and scientific
were anchored off the coast of the bas-
tournament was waged to the enjoy-
mcnt of all. After these many months of sailing, the men grew tired of ship food and, guiding their
vessels through the spring months, landed on the shores of savory dinners, and here were held the
banquets, so famous for strengthening the bond of fellowship among weary crews.
Now, new men have been added to walk the decks and guide the ships through future years of
adventurous sailing. Some of the staunch old sailors have gone ashore on leaveg but they go, hoping
that these new hands with the old still remaining will continue to fly the flag of friendship from the
top mast, and steer the ships over new and uncharted courses.

In the large Room H of Silliman Hall, November 18, 1906, an event took place which was to affect
the lives of innumerable Hermon men, a club was founded by Professor H. F. Thompson. In honor
of Mr. H. Hayward, it was named The Hayward Agricultural Club, a name under which it existed
for many years, stimulating deep interest in the agriculture of Gill. Stimulated by esprit de corps,
in the year 1910 the members saw to it that colors were chosen, and a banner was bought.
As time passed, Hayward grew and became more closely associated with the other societies. The
name of the organization, which was changed in 19141 to The Harmon-Cornell Club was soon after
permanently altered to The Hayward Club. In 1916 Mr. Hayward gave the club a cup to be in-
scribed with the names of Sons of Hayward victorious in the Intersoeiety Debates. Mr. Hayward, in
1928, established an endowment fund whereby a worthy member of Hayward can gain financial aid in
his education. The most recent important event was the establishment in June, 1931, of The Hayward
Alumni Board for keeping in touch with graduated members.
Throughout the twenty-five years of its existence Hayward has tried, with marked success, to live
up to its motto, Progress, and to give its members an appreciation of true friendship.

The Good Government Club is celebrating this season its thirty-seventh year as an active organiza-
tion in Mount Hermon School. The club was founded by Joseph Jefferson for the purpose of creating
an interest in politics among Hermon students, and since that day, the club l1as conscientiously adhered
to that principle in all of its activities. A history of the club would be the story of a successful organi-
zation which has never lost sight of tl1e goal of its motto: 'ito create an interest in politics among young
It is well to look back upon thirty-seven successful years, upon the lists of men who have been mem-
bers of Good Government, upon thirty-seven annual banquets, and upon thirty-seven years of rivalry
with other clubs upon the debaters' platform and the athletic field.
Above all else, however, it will probably be the real friendships and the true spirit of brotherhood
formed among fellow members which will be remembered when we recall our student days, after leav-
ing our Alma Mater. VVe shall surely never forget the fellowship of the Good Government Club,
which has been sung, written, and talked about, which has been tested on the athletic field, on the
debaters' platform, and in other interclub activities.

Motivated by a desire to acquire knowledge in fields other than those obtainable in the curriculum,
and the companionship of kindred personalities, a group of students met early in the history of the
school and organized The Trojan Society. Thirty-six years ago, the name of this organization was
changed to the Philomathean Literary Society. Ever since its early conception Philomathea has been
composed of an aggressive group. Year after year, its members have gained distinction in scholastic
and extra-curricula activities, both as individuals and as a club. Nor has this ambitious spirit wancd

It is to Professor Dickerson, for many years the head of the Science Department of Mount Hermon,
that the members of the club are indebted for the knowledge and fellowship wl1icl1 they have gained
through their organization, for in the year 1912, Professor Dickerson instituted a series of weekly
meetings in order that those interested in scientific pursuits might become more familiar with the
subject. This was really the beginning of the Dickerson Scientific Club.
Since that time, the club not only has acquired a charter and a constitution, but also has altered its
purpose by making athletics, for the development of sportsmanship, and fellowship, without which
no organization is able to thrive, the outstanding element of the club, together with science.
The membership has never exceeded thirty, for it was the belief of the pioneers interested in the
future of Dickerson that a small group is more progressive, more harmonious, more successful than a
The past year has indeed helped to prove the accuracy of this statement. With only seventeen mem-
bers the "scientists" have completed several new scientific projects, not to mention the winning of the
interclub basketball championship, The main accomplishment, however, was made in the realm of
fellowship, for the close association with the other men has made what shall doubtless prove lifelong

The 1931 Season
The teams which played during the last season were more evenly matched than those of the previous
ycarg consequently the competition was keener, and the games were more interesting to watch.
On paper at the beginning of the season, the Juniors had by far the best team. Because, however,
of injuries, faulty organization, and other causes, the team did not function so well as it had been
expected. The Sophomores, under the capable leadership of their captain assisted by the two other
horsemen, surprised everyone by finishing the season in second place. The Freshmen, always an

Seniors, who had played together for four years, won the award, not because they had better material

in Mr. Platt an excellent coach. The Sophomores finished second because they were imbued with an
indomitable spirit. The failure of the other two teams was due to the lack of these essentials.
From the spectators' viewpoint and from that of the players, the season was an entire success.

Four Years of Football
From the beginning the Class of 1932 had great promise in football. There were two things in her
favor, she had Ken Allan for the backfield and Prof Platt for coacll.
In the Freshman year the team was not well organized, for, as is usual in Freshman classes, there
was too much individual playing. ln spite of this, the season was fairly successful. The Sophomore
year was one of triumph, for, though many men from the previous year's team were gone, and though
the team was unusually light, the spirit was wonderful, and the team gained second place. The Junior

limited amount of material, and de-

entire backfield, and, with the help of Ham Watt and the Finefrocks, ran rampant through the lines
and around the ends of all opposing teams. Newt Page, although very light, inspired the whole line
by his playing at center. Two fast and rangy ends, Mayshark and Fry, kept Thirty-two's goal out of
danger most of the time, while Linke and Captain Eastman broke up the opponents' plays from tackle,
and guards Farevaag and Morse made the line practically impenetrable. The reserve force of Milton,
Power, and Beane proved indispensable.
This season was truly a Htting one with which to close our Hermon football, and I believe that the
record made by our teams is one which will stand for a long time, of the last sixteen games only one
was tied, and none was lost.

In spite of this formidable competitor, the three other classes put out fighting teams that gave the

The wrestling season started out with unusual interest this year, with so much interest, in fact, that
a new wrestling room was procured in Recitation, exclusively for the mat men. The Junior Class
turned out an excellent team again under the leadership of that wrestler of wrestlers, W. C. Johnson,
and went through the season adding another championship to its list. The class of '34 followed, the

classes respectively. Johnson was by far the outstanding man of the Junior team. Bruner, Batty, and
Hardy were the chief Sophomore twisters. The Freshmen were led by A. D. Johnson, their best man.
Merriam and MacFarlane starred for the Seniors. The lighter classes seemed to have the keenest
competition, but, as a whole, the matches were much more interesting than last year.

Swimming this year at Mount Hermon was, as in the case of every one of the other sports, a closely
contested battle between the Seniors and the Juniors. Although every record was threatened by the
swimmers, that of the eighty-yard relay was the only one broken. The Junior relay team, composed
of Eigner, Cutter, Norton, and VVild, lowered its record time of last year by two-fifths of a second.
XVith such men as these, the Junior Class was able to win the championship for their third time,
thereby taking the I.eon I.. Dunnell swimming trophy.
In regard to scoring, the five highest scorers were: Norton, Cutter, Hopper, McPherson, and Eigner.
Besides these, there were several others who were consistent point gainers for their teams. Many of
them, being underclassmen, give promise of making swimming in the future even more interesting and
more spectacular than it has been up to the present time. The most outstanding of these are Marshall,
Fazakas, Burlingame, Hedman, Shumaker, and Chaifer. -
Credit is due Mr. Kirrmann for the splendid coaching he offered the swimmers this past season,
and it is hoped that the other faculty members will follow his much-appreciated example. Thus with
an abundance of proficient underclass mermen and the prospect of having more coaching, the future of
swimming at Hermon is more than bright.
G. Richard Hopper.
The sharp crack of the starting gun! The forward lunge of the runners! The encouraging cheer
of the spectators! Thus with the half-mile run opened the 1932 Indoor Track Meet, one entirely dif-
ferent in form from those of previous years.
The change, a highly desirable one, was effected by the elimination of several minor events, such as
the bar-snaps, the high-kick, and the rope-climb, and the addition of a new and extremely interesting
event, the quarter-mile relay, for which a record of fifty-six seconds was set.
Made possible by the change, the concentration of coaching on the more-important events was prob-
ably responsible for the breaking of several records. In the half-mile, Tabor Polhemus broke the tape
and therewith set a new record at the fast time of two, nine and two-fifths seconds. In the afternoon
he reduced the quarter-mile record to fifty-eight seconds. Needless to say, Polhemus was chosen for
All-Hermon. Jack Hanson, vaulting for the Sophomores, raised the pole-vaulting record to nine feet,
nine inches and, by doing good work in other events, gained a place for himself on the All-Hermon
Two others, Seniors, distinguished themselves by making the team. MacFarlane proved his ability
to endure the fatiguing effects of the most exhausting distance races, while Ken Allan ran the dashes
in splendid time and won the strenuous potato race. H
The fact that the Seniors barely won the meet leads one to believe that next year there will be left
in the school many who will carry on well the work of breaking the old records.

The Senior Play
The lights were dimmed. The
curtain slowly drew back. The
loud babble of voices lulled to a
faint murmuring. So commenced
It Pays to Advertise, the most en-
joyable and most delightful pres-
entation seen for many a day by those who have
for years witnessed the annual Senior Play.
The plot of the play, a particularly attractive
and amusing one, pictures the hero, Dick Cooke,
falling madly in love with the secretary hired
secretly by his wealthy father to spur him on to
productiveness, pictures him opposing his fa-
ther, who absolutely controls the field of the
business he is breaking into, and finally pictures
him forcing his father to combine with him.
The business deals with something with
which we are all more or less familiar,
--namely, soap, and the manner in
which the son and his advertising man-
ager, Hubbard, endeavor to fight the
huge soap trust with their numerous
A little ripple of excitement passed among the
spectators when Bob Hubbard stuffed an over-
grown cigar into his mouth and commenced
frantically to search for a match, but that soon
subsided when Bob contented himself with bit-
ing about half the cigar off. Thus the play was
replete with incidents which can be appreciated
only by an Hermon audience.
Fagans and Merriam also caused a few heart-
flutters when they "strutted" their feminine ap-
peal on the stage. Another attraction, which
amused some more than others, was the credit-
able acting of Ham Watt and Summersgill, who
proved themselves particularly adapted to their
parts. One certainly must give Pulis the credit
for being a perfect creditor, and, if one would
learn to be the perfect butler, page
In heaping praises on the presenta-
tion, we are indirectly doing the same
to Mr. Ross, who almost had a nervous
breakdown when he witnessed the dress
sensational signs of 13 Soap, Unlucky
for Dirt and the ridiculously small
amount of soap which they actually have to sell,
makes a delightfully enticing story.
The mushroom-like springing-up of obstacles
before our hero left the audience pleasantly in
suspense, but our hero came through one hun-
dred per cent in overcoming his father's extreme
conservatism, his creditors' natural lack of faith,
the difficulty of selling three-cent soap for a
dollar, and the pseudo-countess's proclivity for
But there is more to the plot. The romantic
element must be supplied, and Dick Cooke and
Parker Kimball, who was, as is usually the case,
the secretary of her fiance's father, came up to
our expectations in a most satisfactory manner.

one, even though it did not stay with him long.
rehearsal just previous to the perform-
ance. It was through his efforts, his
driving, and his training that the play was fi-
nally rounded into shape.
The performance this year of It Pays to Ad-
vertise certainly proves the value of dramatics
in any school, The players in this popular
comedy deserve credit for having done a re-
markable piece of work. They read, they prac-
ticed, they drilled, they did their best, and, as
a result, they presented to us one of the best
portrayals of all dramatic pieces ever brought
before the student body of the school. We, who
have witnessed and enjoyed to the
utmost this pleasing presentation
by the Senior Class, acknowledge
the actors as excellent in the field,
and in our very praise and admi-
ration may they find their reward.
