Gilman STUDENT ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR 52 The Clas s of 1972 wishes to dedicate this yearbook to ROBERT H. CILIXIAN, DIRECTOR OF STUDENT ACTIVITIES. Although many people helped us along the way in our times of need, Bob, has been an outstanding figu rc in advising us, and most of all, in allowing us to make our own decisions. He s t o od by us through every activity that was held and helped to make each a success. He attended all the meetings of the Student Council and had direct contact with the Social C om m i tte e, Communications Board, Distinguished Visitors Committee, Yearbook Staff and all the rest of the Mount's clubs and sports. Everytime that we 1IiCt w i th Bob, he faced us with patience and true concern. There was never a time when a student asked him for help and was refused it, Much may be said about a man like Bob Gilman, but words limit ones expres- sion of feeling for a man like this. We, The Class of 1972, would just like to thank you, BOB, for being there when we needed you, and for being the closest friend to all of us at the Mount. 72 if L. , . , 4 51' s f . l Y ii... y 53 Oizfm 64M 7 'kjdwf ff, ' 'W Ju 4, Q Qgijgwff W I IRQ. my QQEW JW JWXM WW Q wwf Ui A JY A M!

Madigan Being of a salubrious condition, one still cannot neglect a malady of one's inner self. The malady which I speak of is that of a demented child, or a frightened school girl. You might think me mad to have such direful feelings towards spiders, but the mere thought of them plagues me almost to the point of insanity. Dwelling upon the origins of this feeling does nothing but darken my most serene moments. I have travelled many a long mile in search of a place to hide my weary body, but those skulking, bloodthirsty creatures seem to subsist in every broad way imaginable. Not only do I have to badger myself with the hideous thoughts of one kind of spider, but an infinite variety, for there are as many spiders as there are maggots in foul meat. Thou- sands upon thousands of these unsparing spiders delve this terraqueous orb for their hidden and malign reasons. I have tried to exterminate these hazardous beasts, but they are much too cunning for my intellect. Once I captured one of these arachnids fonly in a dream, of courseb and kept it in a secure glass prison. I watched delightedly as my im- prisoned adversary scrambled about in terror. While looking at this strange form, I could not help but stare at its piercing eyes fall six of themj, which never missed one of my movements. It was as if this creature was contemplating an es cape and plotting what it would do with me in such an event. It would probably bring me to its web of sticky, fingerlike threads, crossed by even more fibers in every direction possible, and placing me in the well hidden nest, it could leave me as it searched for more succulent victims. Upon awakening, I found myself saturated in a cold sweat, which even wiping with a towel could not remove. And in no way could I remove or dismiss the feelings that this ruthless killer had instilled in me. These spiders monopolize my dreams and even my everyday activities, I have tried my utmost to conquer them, but it has all been ineffectual. You may think me a spineless poltroon with a phobia, but I am sure if you were in my place you would have the same feelings. Do not be so abrupt in your characterization of me, my friend. You see there is one essential fact that I have failed to mention. I have a very right- eous reason for not telling you that which will assuredly sway your opinions. My feelings regarding spiders are quite common for one in my position. You ask yourself what type of existence would have such anomalistic ideas towards spiders. I will tell you who! Me, a common housefly. 66 BOLT THE DOOR, PLEASE, IT MIGHT KEEP OUT THE OGRE at night when it is dark l and there are no chickens in the yard and the dog has to stay in the cellar and the wind blows sightless noise creatures into my mind that go creak creak creak i would like to haveva rabbits foot hanging from my belt buclcle just in case A By Marsha MacDonald wwe. .M-, xl , 5 .' -1-.f lg - we v, --u. I ,zfgj , -1, 'iw'-it ODE TO EMILY by Alan Scott Most people are probably not to familiar with the great rat invasion of 1967. In fact I believe, that other than myself, not many people have ever heard of it. But how can this be, you ask? How could the fate of the country, yes, even the fate of the world, be so endangered and yet no one even be aware of it? Well, unable to keep the secret any longer, and believing that recognition is certainly due, I offer this story as explanation. As a kitten, Emily showed no signs of being anything other than an ord inary Siamese cat. Oh, there were a few mice and an occasional chickadee, but I figured this was just part of growing up. I'd build a little cross and bury the mouse, and Emily would say he was sorry but he couldn't help himself. We talked about it at great length some- times. Gee, maybe you think that a little strange, that Emily could talk to me, I mean. Anyway, by the time he was a year old, he had become a pretty beau- tiful cat. I'd come home sometimes, bury the mouse and say, "God, Emily, you're a beautiful cat. " He'd give me a kind of knowing smile and then walk away. It was really nice watching him walk. He moved so deliberately. Then one day it happened. God, I'll never forget that day. I came home from school and there in the living room was Emily, toying with a rat. He was two years old then and I really expected better judge- ment than to bring a dirty old rat into the house. I was really furious. I was all ready to scold Emily when he told me that this was no ordin- ary rat. He was a spy, and Emily was interrogating him. He cuffed him and bit his ears, but this rat was a professional. He wasn't going .to talk. I was starting to panic, but Emily calmed me down. He tied the rat to a wall and tickled his belly with his whiskers. The one thing that rats can't stand, even hardcore professionals, is to be tickled on the belly with a cat's whiskers. Boy, did that rat sing! Really he squeaked, but Emily had a pretty good command of languages and understood everything he said. 68 According to Emily, all the rats of the Soviet bloc were massing some- where in the lower Antilles for a full scale airborne invasion of North America. The attack was to take place the following nightg the landing zone not too far from where we lived. I was a nervous wreck. I want- ed to call the proper authorities, but Emily told me not to worry about it. I left the room as Emily polished off the greasy little spy. The fate of nations is a pretty heavy responsibility, so, needless to say, I didn't sleep too well that night. The next day was average. I trudged off to school and Emily took it easy around the house. But that night, fGod, I shudder at just the thoughtj, Emily had me drive him up to quadrant "X", That was the name Emily had given to the field where the rats were going to land. We got there just before dark and hid in the bushes. It seemed like hours, but I guess it was just a few minutes before we heard the faint hum of tiny airplanes. I was getting tense, sweaty, my life flashing before my eyes. Suddenly the gray sky was filled with thousands of tiny white dots that seemed to grow as they fell to earth. Emily was up in a flash, slash- ing them while they were still in the air, chomping their heads before they had a chance to get out of their parachutes. He was a madman. He was ten cats in full armor, gnawing, slashing, swatting, all the time sounding his battle cry, "Meowwww!" I froze. My mind told me to help, but my muscles just wouldn't re- spond. I sat there in a trance, overwhelmed by the horrible sight be- fore me. The battle was over in about an hour I think. It's pretty hard for me to recall all the gory details now, but I hope you understand that this was quite an experience for me. I spent the rest of the night burying the thousands of little bodies fsav- ing some of the choice rats for Emily's dinnerj so that the world would never know how close it came to such a horrible fate. It was Emily's suggestion, but thats the kind of cat he is, shy and unassuming. Well, that's my story. Most of you will probably think I've just been making it all up, but I swear it's true. If you don't believe me, ask Emily. 69 Like a spider condemned for its ugliness She weaves a pattern of delicate strands Accumulated by the monarch of reason. The inner volcano erupts. Emotional upheaval explodes as the Cannonball of reality Breaks the Web of sensitivity. A corner, dark and alone Offers false serenity As the poisonous mist Clogs the pores of reason with Its chemical substance that splits The fusion of her existence. Leave me to my dreams She screams Lady Luck the divine prostitute Lies chained in her bed of chance Laughing. Leni Ilinitch And who gave you the right to sit, in your glory a self-crowned king, and pass judgement on us. To pry open our mouths extract our teeth and when we protest then tell us it was the right thing to do, that you had no choice. And it really didn't matter because they were mostly rotten in the first place. While behind dark eyes your lies take form to carry us on. And we, without choice, agree that you knew what was best for us to do. By Richard Harris It sprang up in fertile ground Although I'd tried to cover those vulnerable fields With a blanket of unfeeling stone. I'd forgotten We are the playthings Of many forces. And have little control Over the mooring posts And touchstones of our lives. Perspective We do not choose them Like penny candy - In the store display case. We have only the choice To accept or reject. We cannot structure- Only seek out what is there- Like blind children Trying to climb a jungle gym. N Charlene Lapointe A ., K., f,.

F I PITY THE FAIR MAIDEN h fl-Trom Bob Dylan's 'Pity The Poor Immigrant"J I pity the fair maiden who's beauty affects her mind. Til it's cluttered up with her lovliness, and all other thoughts are left so far behind. Who's language is a mockery, of some good books she's read. To define that line more clearlyg she speaks words which already have been said. I pity the fair damsel who's arrogance is her pride. Who always wants some handsome dude, But will never stay at his side. Who is admired, but still not satisfied, And who can touch, but cannot feel. Who seems to have some happy times, But who's sadness she cannot conceal. I pity the fair maiden who's dreams of queen are many. Who thinks she has a lot of friends, But really doesn't have any. Who's person in the final end must shatter with her class. I pity this fair maiden when her beauty comes to pass. by Tom Caisse W4 .. cd' f-"'- lr X ' ,MI X X. x 1. Bowling Club fi D "'!?f??I?2?'

Malcolmson Sterling Mr. joseph R. Pandiscio, Sr Fitchburg Atty. Louis Scerra Gardner Meaning ofAcademic Attire The caps and gowns worn in formal academic affairs in American colleges to- day are the direct descendants of the everyday costumes worn in the Univer- sities of Mediaeval England. Each school had its peculiar dress so that an Oxford man could be distinguished from a Cambridge man, or a divinity student from a layman. Because of the tremendous growth of American colleges and the attendant confusion which would result if each were to adopt a distinctive costume, the Intercollegiate Bureau of Academic Costume was organized. The Bureau has established a uniform code which over 700 institutions have adopted. Harvard, practically alone, still clings to its own traditional costume. The distinctions of the Code are simple, there being three types of gowns and three types of hoods for bachelors, masters, and doctors, respectively. The bachelor's gown has a long pointed sleeveg whereas the master's gown has a long closed sleeve, square at the end with an arc of a circle just above the bottom. The sleeve extends well below the knee, the arm coming through a slit near the elbow. The doctor's gown is characterized by a voluminous bell- shaped sleeve on which appear three velvet bars. The colors of the bars are the colors of the faculty which granted the degree but may be black. The hood is the most important and distinctive feature of the Code. The hoods for all degrees are lined with silk in the official academic color or colors of the institution conferring the degree and have an edging or trim of velvet, the color of which indicates the course or faculty to which the degree pertains. The lining is exposed when the hood is worn. The bachelor's hood is rather short with a narrow velvet edging. lt is not worn by candidates for the bac- calaureate degree but only by those upon whom this degree has been previously conferred. The master's hood is considerably longer, has a wider velvet edging, and exposes more of the lining. The doctor's hood has wide panels at the side and is easily recognized since, of the three types of hoods, it has the widest velvet edging, greatest length, and fullest exposure of the lining. The black mortarboard cap with tassel is worn with each type of gown. Those holding a doctor's degree are privileged to wear a gold tassel. Masters and bachelors wear tassels that are either black or of the color appropriate to the course in which they are being graduated. Some of the colors, which may be observed at this commencement and which symbolize various courses or faculties, are as follows: Arts, Letters, Humanities .... . . . White Commerce, Accountancy, Business . . . Dull Gray Economics .......... Education .......... Engineering ......... Fine Arts, including Architecture Home Economics ....... Journalism .........

This years YEARBOOK, has a great deal to tell, but nothing to receive, this entire 112 page book was laid out from cover to cover with a staff of only five C55 persons, and we are very confident, that it is an improvement over last years book, of which we have heard was not appreciated. 1 my self along with my staff members attempted to, and set out to, improve it, and to produce this years book with a complete different idea and on new ground. It was our goal to have this book published with many of the happenings, and try not to center it around just a certain clan or group of people. We have tried to reach our goal in many ways, but due to some minor problems beyond our control, this was not possible. A YEARBOOK, is to be pleasant, at least that is our way of thinking, so we have not included any misleading or misinterpting things which may have occured throughout this past year. QQ want you to be PROUD YOU ATTENDED MOUNT WACI-IUSETT COMMUNITY COLLEGE. 1 would like to extend credit to my staff who have spent countless and selfless hours working on this book, to record as many happenings as possible for this 1971-72 academic year, as we are all well aware of, it is not possible to get everyone's photograph into this book for one reason or another. My personal thanks to the Editor and General Manager of this book: Carl Rissaneng our Liter- ary Editor: Judy joseph: our Layout Editor: jane Marino: Photographer Editor: Alice Fitzwater: the Business Managers: Denise Doiron and Clem Lanzag Staff members: Theresa Pollari, Rick Manning, Mike O'Rourke, Roger Gutkopf, Ray Jensen, Ray LeBlanc and our ad- visor--Robert Gilman, plus those people already named in our credit section of this book. All of these people have assisted in many ways by helping out some how to make this years YEARBOOK POSSIBLE. I remember back to when we first got organized to all those frustrating hours, finding the time to get this book finished, but that's the respon- sibility one accepts in a job like this, it has been fun at times, and upset- ting at other times, but all in all I have enjoyed it.
