Nvsmith iirinripal nf Nashua High Srhnnl Eehiraiinn To the members of the Faculty, one and all, who have watched with imfailiiig interest the progress of the Class of 1924, we dedicate this book as a tolceii of our esteem and good will. Engraved and Printed by HOWARD-WEISSON Co. Worcester, Mass. Zllnreinnrh With this issue of the Class Book we have at- tempted to establish a precedent for future classes by standardizing TUSITALA as the name of the Class Book. Like Stevenson, who was called the Teller of Tales by the natives of Samoa, so may we as we yrow older in life, live not only las Tellers of Tales, but as Doers of Deeds, and when we look back on our happy days in Nashua High as depicted in TUSITALA, let us still feel affection for our Alina Mater.

' Dave was born. to lead. As an actor, too, he proved that he had rare talent in taking the lead in both the Senior Play and "Marcheta." GERMAINE ALLARD A "While men have eyes, or ears, or taste, She'll always find a l0ive'r." Giermaine had many girl friends and also many of the other sex. In fact, she was the coquette of Room 5. We girls always looked to her for the newest fashions and were always sure of learn- ing the latest styles. She was a mem- ber of the School Orchestra for I, II, 111, Iv. I TUSITALA MARIE MARY AMMET "Her smile was like a simamery shine- Gailfy pers1'ste1it." Humming was Marie's favorite pas- time. In the morning, at recess, and at noon, you'd always hear her singing as if she hadn't a care in the world. Her cheerful countenance corroborated this impression, for she had a ready smile for all her classmates. May you ever find business life as happy as your three years with us, Marie! ELEANOR ANDERSON "CorLsta,ncy is the crownirig privilege of friendship." Eleanor's rosy cheeks and wholesome appearance may well have been the effects of country air. As the frequent publications of her stories in the Tattler show, she was gifted along literary lines. As the climax to this career, she was chosen Class Poet. This was not her only achievement, for her ambition, com- bined With her natural ability, gave her a high standing in the Upper Third. AGNES' MARY BARRY "A little woman, thougli a 'very little thing, Is sweeter far than sugar, arwl flowers that bloofm in Spring." Agnes always furnished a good share of fun wherever she went. We are al- most glad that sickness caused her to leave school for a while, since that cir- cumstance made her a member of the class of '24 instead of '23. Agnes was on our Senior Dance Committee. TUSITALA FLORENCE BAYRUTT "Our young and gentle friend, whose smile made brighter many oleaol school hours." "Flips" was a favorite in Room 5. She proved to be merry at all times, never frowning, laughing the hours' away. 'Member what a shark she was in his- tory? It goes without saying that she was in the Upper Third. She also helped to make the Senior Play a success and was an Assistant Editor of the Class Book. "Flips" retained evidences of a pleasant kind of tom-boyishness. A MARGARET AME:s BEARSE "There's a day of April in her heart." Margaret's middle name should have been "versatile," for whether it was sing- ing, dancing, acting, writing, or playing basketball, she was always a success. Why go into detail when this list of ac- tivities, shows what a place she held in N. H. Sf? Girls' Basketball Team Ig Tattler Reporter Ilg Glee Club II, H13 Sophomore Ring Committee II, Vice- President IIIg School Notes Editor IVg Senior Play IV, 4'Marcheta"g Prophetess IVg Upper Third. PRISCILLA GRACE BOYD "Good manners and soft words Bring many a difficult thing to pass." Priscilla could not be heard amid a crash or tumult, but her very quietness was distinctive. She sang in the Glee Clubs for the Athletic Association, and was noted for her artistic work, an at- tractive cover of the Tattler being one of the products of her ability. Of course she was in the Upper Third. When all was right with Priscilla, no one will for- get her happy face and good comrade- ship. TUSITALA GEORGE EDWARD BRIEN "He smiles so when one's fright, And when one's wrong he smiles still more." Some people have misjudged George as a pessimist and he comes on our bal- lot as the second choice for pessimist, but don't believe it. George had a grin as contagious as the measles and his friends know that his cheerful nature chased away gloom as old lady Dutch Cleanser chases dirt. George was some classy little debater, too, and maybe it was because he argued so well on dark subjects that he was called a pessimist. KATHERINE JEAN BRODERICK "A little nonsense -now and then Is relished by the best of men." . "Kaddy" always had a smile on her face and she cheerfully admitted that she didn't know what a frown was! She was on the Junior Dance Committee, the Honor Roll, and the Senior Council. We suspect that the candy sold at "Mar- cheta" got a lot of its sweetness from ccKaddy-rx HERBERT MILTON BROWN "Exhansting thought, And living wisdom with each studious year." ' For Herbert was a student! He would devour knowledge. Often when every- one else in the class had failed, Herbert get up and gave a three-minute recita- tion. No wonder that he ranked fourth in the Upper Third. That he was enthu- siastic over other things besides lessons, was shown by his being in the Glee Club one year. TUSITALA HORACE CLIFFORD BROWN "He who seeks the mrindis improvement Aids the world in aiding mind." If ever you felt down-hearted, Horace was a good cure. He was clever and bright in his speech and yet dignified, as shown by his good portrayal of i'Mr. Johns" in the Senior Play and of the Duke in "Marcheta." He will always re- main prominent in our minds as the Edi- tor of the Class Book. He proved his musical ability by singing in the Boys' Glee Club II and III. An argument on politics was never complete without his opinion. He was studious, too, as his be- ing on the Honor Roll showed. BURTON LYLE BRUCE "His muscles were like iron bands." At least, that is what the man opposite him in a football game must have thought, during the three years that "Bert"' earned his letters. He was a mainstay on the Track Team II, III, and IV. Senior year the Athletic Council was not satisfied with his being just a member so they made him president. One of "Bert"s" greatest pleasures was get- ting out of English. class fifteen minutes early in order to get to his lunch counter duties on time. But of course this was compensated by his losing half of recess, serving ravenous students. ELIZABETH BRYANT , "She speaks, behaves, and acts just as she' ofaghtf' "Betty" was a perfect little lady, in every sense of the word, whose smiling countenance and merry repartee made her presence a pleasure to all concerned. She twanged on her mandolin in the Mandolin Club IV, and also helped make "The Charm School" and "Marcheta" a success. Her abilities as a reporter as- sisted the Tattlefr IV, she worked eii'i- ciently as Class Book Paragrapher, and withal maintained high rank on the Honor Roll. TUSITALA PAUL RICHARD BRYANT "Qnip's and cranks and wanton wtlesf' No one could laugh and be serious at the same time as well as Paul. We never knew just how to take him, but were sure of amusement, the teachers. in- cluded. He was a Tattler Reporter I, on the Ring and Pin Committee II, Orches- tra I, II, III, IV, Track Squad III, and Manager IV, Athletic Council IV, Senior Council IV, Senior Dance Committee, and in "Marcheta." His list of activities shows his school spirit and goodfellow- ship during our four years. JOHN OGDEN BUCKLEQY xx His talk was like a stream which runs With rapid change from rocks to roses, It slipped from politics to puns It passed from Mahomet to Moses." "Oggie" had a good "line,"-he could talk both sense and nonsense and was seldom seen in an unhappy mood. He was a candidate for football in '23 and one of a few who took a lot of punish- ment for the betterment of the first squad. He was a Tattler Reporter in '24, and his smiling countenance was seen in "Marcheta." MARJORIE LOUISE. CAMPBELL "Grace was in all her steps, heaven in her eye, In every gesture, dignity." What girl in '24 did not envy Marjorie her dignified bearing? She was calm and unruffled on every occasion. Her popularity goes without saying when you look over her list of activities. Class Ring Committee II, Student Council II, III, IV, Traiiic Oflicer III, Senior Play Candy Committee IV, Senior Dance Com- mittee IV, "Marcheta" IV. TUSITALA LILLIAN VERONICA CANAVAN "Folks always need just the people like you." Lillian was just the nicest friend that one could wish for. She not only found pleasure in life, but also furnished her share of it Wherever she went. Know why our Senior Play Candy Committee was such a success? 'Cause Lillian was on it! Here's to your future, Lillian! , EVA ELIZABETH CARR "A smiling look she has, a figure slight, With, cheerful air, and step both. quick and light." One could always depend on Eva for knowing her lessons, though by no means was she a "grind" She was a clever actress and showed her ability in the Senior Play and "Marcheta." She also was very musical, and her high ranking in the Upper Third augurs well for her college career. Mandolin Club I, II, III, IV, Senior' Play, "Marcheta." EDWARD FRANCIS: CARROLL "Men are of two kinds, and he Is of the kind I'cl like to be." Our most prominent athletic man, Francis made many friends in high school, both through athletics and be- cause of his comradely ways. His list of activities is a good evidence of his school spirit. He played Football II, III, IV, Basketball II, III, IV, Baseball II, III, IV, fCaptain IVJ, and was a mein- ber of the Athletic Council III, IV. we expect that he will make his place in the world as he has in Nashua High School. L 1 TUSITALA i ERNEST J OISEPH CHALIFOUX "My tongue within my lips I rein, For who talks much must talk in vain." "Ernie" did not join us till our Sopho- more year, but when he did he made the class sharks hustle to keep their places, and certainly earned his place in the Upper Third. He never said a great deal but his mind was very active and he said something when he did speak. His pet annoyance was a contrary lock of hair on his cranium and if one hap- pened to catch him unawares, he might be found slicking it down. ALICE ADRIEINNE CHAMBERLAIN "Dreams, books, are each ci world." At least they were to Alice. She was both a great dreamer and a book reader, and the result was she was a good stu- dent, who certainly deserved her place on the Honor Roll. Alice only came here her Junior year, but after she became ac- quainted with the ways of N. H. S., we found out what a good sport she was. She was in the Alpha Debating Society III, Tattler Typist IV, and was in the chorus of "lVIarcheta." PHYLLIS EVELYN CLEMENT "Of softest manners, unayfected mind, Lover of peace, and friend of human kind." Phyllis was the most peaceable person in Room 5. One never could get her into an argument. She was feminine to the finger tips and in the play, "Marcheta," she showed us what a pretty bridesmaid she could be,-too charming, in fact, 'to be wasted on a theatrical. TUSITALA GERTRUDE' COHEN "Of all those arts in which the wise excel, N aturefs chief masterpiece is writing well," Gertrude has made a name for herself not only in the literary world of N. I-I. S., where she certainly did shine as As- sociate Editor of the Tattler, but also in dramatics, especially in "The Charm School." She was usually quiet, but we found she did have a keen sense of hu- mor, even if the joke was on herself. ANNA MAE COLLINS "But the sure traveler Though she alights sometimes, still goeth on." Anna was so quiet that we cannot say much about her. We did notice, though, that she had a great habit of sharpening her pencils in the morning so that we knew she had stopped studying for just a few minutes. FRANK HERMAN CONNELL "The winds afrwl waves are always OWL the siole of the ablestf' So let it be with "Tacks." Although he never seemed to study hard, he must have accomplished much in his quiet way,- for like Abou Ben Adam's, his name led the rest on the A and B List, especially III and IV. . He acted like a veteran in the part of "one of the twins," in the Senior Play. He helped make the Tat- tler the fine paper it was senior year by assuming the heavy duties of Advertis- ing Mfanager. He was elected to write prophecies for the Class Book, and he also won his letter in Baseball III. TUSITALA WILLIAM SEYMOUR Cook "A few strong instincts, and a few plain rules." Bill was an easy-going sort of a fel- low Who, because of his "strong instincts and plain rules," made many friends in school and outside. He was always ready for a good time and had many of them during his four years in N. H. S. He was a gypsy in "Marcheta. W J AMES PEASILEE CUMMINGS "What ho! Another radio fan." It was Jim's love for mechanical work that led him to commute daily from Man- chester to N. H. S. He was among the first members of '24 to own a radio out- fit, and to report every morning what stations he had obtained the night be- fore. He was quick to make friends, and a willing worker' on the Football Squad III. We expect him- to be as great an inventor as De Forest or Wohl. DORIS MAUDE CURTICEY "To doubt her pnreness were to want a ' heart." It is not only those who are noisy that help make the World brighter, but the quiet ones, too. Doris was one of the latter. Sympathetic and jolly, she went through high school with us. Though she was naturally quiet, her voice was heard many times, as in the Glee Club. TUSITALA ROBERT AMBROSE DEARBORN "I fear 'nothing that can be said against me." That is the way that "Bob" feels. He started off his high school career by be- ing on the Freshman Social Committee. During the next two years, although he was somewhat smaller than most of the fellows, he was on the Basketball Squad and what he lacked in size he made up in speed. Senior year, besides being a Corridor Policeman, he worked recess handing out food at the lunch counter. "Bob's" big sport is golf. He can give the three names of almost every golf champion around, and some day hopes to have his name among them. ELEANOR ALICIA DILLON "She that was fair and never proud, Had tongue at will, and get was never loud." And Eleanor was just that. She was popular, too, and how she could strum that banjo! She strummed it in the Glee Club for four years and played in the orchestra. She was on the Junior Prom Committee, a member of the Senior Council, sold candy at the Senior Play, and was in the cast of "Marcheta." JOHN THOMAS DIMTSIOS "For e'eu tho vanquished, he could argue still." Good old John! He would argue on any subject anywhere and at any time. John was quite an artist. Practically every dance or play the school had was advertised by a poster made by him. He worked hard at his studies and we are glad to give him credit for coming through so successfully. TUSITALA ROMEO Louis D1oN "I shall never wear my heart upon 'my sleeve For daws to peck at." Shakespeare's Romeo could never have excelled ours. He was always at home among the girls. If he wasn't at school, or mixing drinks where he worked, you'd find him at a dance. He was in the cast of "Marcheta." Go to it, Romeo. Re- member you're only young once. ALICE DOUGLAS "Her heart is good humored, 'tis honest and sound, No envy or malice is there to be found." Alice was another of our commuters who may have appeared to be a girl of few words, but some of us were roused to envy by her eloquence when it came to oral compositions. She was eighth in the Upper Third. Will she become a great political leader in the future and be called the second "silver-tongued ora- tor?" EDMUND BUCKLE DOWNEVY "Ne,er breathed a truer friend." Football II, III, IV. Track Squad III, IV. Baseball I, II, III, IV. Junior Council, III, Senior Council IV. Athletic Association III, IV. Traiiic Squad IV. Stage Manager, Senior Play. "Little Ed" was the star on football and baseball fields. When he was Cap- tain of the Baseball Team III, Nashua won the State Championship. Ed loved humor and was always pulling "wise cracks" which caused whole classes to burst out in laughter. May "Ed" hit the line in life as skillfully as when he hit the opposing playerson football fields. TUSITALA FRANCES MARGARET DOWNEY "Happy am I, from care I am free, Why aren't they all ooiitefnted like me?" No one could be blue or unhappy when Frances was around. Full of fun, witty and alert, Frances enlivened many a mo- ment which threatened to be dreary. Be- sides this, she was a musician of no mean ability, as was proved by her member- ship in the Mandolin and Glee Club, and by her being chosen as Class Pianist. THEODORE CLINTON DRUMM "He has a nimble wit: I think 'twas 'made of Atala-'hta's heels." Did you ever see "Ted" when he was not laughing or when he did not have some witty remark ready? Even when he was earning his letter in Football IV, he always came up smiling, ready with a joke. In class, when not reciting, his favorite pastime was to "sneak" a little sleep. LORRAINE EVA DUFOUR "A delicate, attractive, dainty little fig- ure, 'uncommonly bright brown eyes, vested with vivacity and iiitelligencef When called upon to recite, Lorraine always had her lessons, and won a place in the Upper Third, yet whenever there was a good time in progress, she was al- ways to be found in the midst of the gaiety. How she did it was always an unsolved mystery to her classmates in Room 5, as Lorraine never vouched un- necessary explanation. She proved espe- cially discreet in her service at the teach- er's lunch counter in senior year. In her junior year she was a Tattler Reporter. We will always remember her as the de- lightfully "French" little French girl in the Senior Play. J TUSITALA ALICE MILDRED DUTTO-N "Oh, what a pal was Alice!" Alice was more easy to get acquainted with than some people realized. She was quiet and retiring, but was always on the dot when fun was wanted, and had a keen sense of humor. Alice, here's wishing you much luck in the future! CONSTANTINE EFTHIMIOS "Perseve'rance 'ls the secret of success." "Connie," as we all called him, was the shortest member of the class, but every inch of his small stature was full of "pep" and ginger. His pen was as mighty as any sword and he could 'tear off a good poem or story in no time. His powers as a debater were unquestioned and when he spoke we did not lend him our ears,-we gave them to him. "Am- bition" was his middle name and "Perse- verance" his motto. DOROTHY ELISABETH Ess0N "Gentle manners are always captivat- ing." "Dot" was one of the quietest and best liked girls in Room 5. Despite the fact that her lovely hair was auburn in tint, she never became angry if you teased her about it. She was always calm and unruifled and could be depended upon to help in a pinch. We hope you keep it up, 'iDot." TUSITALA CHARLJ-is' EDWARD FOLEN "Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well." That seems to have been Charley's motto all during high school, for what- ever' he attempted, he did to the best of his ability. He belonged to the Alpha Debating Society II and III, and that is really something not many of us Seniors did. He was also on the Track Squad IV. But his greatest abilities were in art and mechanics. His ambition was to become a commercial artist, and we all feel sure that this ambition will be real- ized. ' REBA Fosrim "So rrmch to do, so little done" Reba's two outstanding characteristics were her perpetual hurry and her un- failing good humor. Remember what a charming appearance she made in the Senior'Play? Judging from her pres- ent success as a pianist, we may safely prophecy a brilliant future for her' in musical circles. Doms ELIZABENTH FULLER "For ia better friend, look no fm'th,er." Doris was another member of our class to whom we owe the unusual success of our Junior Prom. Doris entered whole- heartedly into every project, and worked untiringly for the benefit of our class. We will remember her as the girl who was always reliable and helpful, always ready to aid her classmates in any dif- ficulty, and who achieved steady suc- cess in her school work throughout her school career, attaining high rank on the Honor Roll. TUSITALA EVELYN GRACE FULLER 'KA lass of deeds, not of words? Whatever Evelyn started into do, she did well. She was on the Girls' Basket- ball team, I, II, III, IV, and certainly deserved credit for her playing. She was always so thoroughly prepared in all her subjects that no one was sur- prised to find her' third on the Honor Roll. The Glee Club, II, III, included her among its members. Our Class Book is very much the better for Evelyn's eiiicient labor as Associate Editor. PEARL GORODMAN "Eyes that were fountains of laughter - amd sorrow." Pearl's eyes indeed told Whatever mood she was in. She liked to talk, and did, too. She had a genuine knack for Writ- ing which she used to the advantage of the Class Book Committee. We are sure she will succeed in her career at Tufts Medical School. OLIVEITTE LOUISE GRANDMAISO-N "She who mewns not mischief does it all." 'Member her ceaseless. flow of ques- tions in Room 6? Olivette always meant Well, but seemed possessed to say the wrong thing at the wrong' time, much to the amusement of her classmates. She never took offense at laughter at her own expense, for she loved a good joke herself. She sold candy at the Senior Play, took part in "Marcheta," and worked on the Lunch Counter her Senior year. Was she popular? Well, rather! f 1 ' TUSITALA AGNES JOSEPHINE GRAY "So quiet, calm cmd kind in many ways." Agnes was quiet and retired at times, but was she always game when a good time approached? She certainly was. Agnes worked faithfully at her studies, and found them enjoyable. Agnes, the class of '24 wishes you a long, success- ful life. RAYMOND WILLIAM HACKETT "Taste the joy That springs from labor." Ray found his joy in the labor of sales- manship, and at one time we were told that that was his life ambition. He changed his mind, however, for he de- cided to enter a medical school, and he will, no doubt, achieve success in this profession, for if ever there was a worker, Ray was one. We knew this, and for that reason we made him Sub- scription Manager of the Toottler IV, and an Assistant Editor of the Class Book. JAMES LAWRENCE HALL "Oh! blest with, temper whose unclouded may Can frrtake tomorrow as cheerful as to- dawg." "Larry,' burned up the dust between his home and the school every morning for four years in his little "road-louse," and in spite of his many trials there- with, his smile was unclouded. Some- thing about him made every black cloud have a silvery lining. Larry's shop ex- perience came in handy, and old "Liz" did not loaf a day, due to said Mr. Hall's mechanical genius. TUSITALA MILDRIJD LOUISE HALLISEY "Moderation, the noblest gift of h.ea'ven." Mildred was very quiet at intervals, and could frequently be found in a cor- ner poring-over some lesson that she had forgotten until that minute. Such absentmindedness, however, did not pre- vent her being on the Honor Roll. Mil- dred was a "whizz" at writing "comps" and we considered it a special treat to be allowed to read her essays. She was elected to the Class Book staff and helped to make it a success. DOROTHY MARIE HASKINS "The niihiest manners and the gentlest hr6?GXl"t.,, Dot's manners were mild, but that doesn't mean that she was meek, She was on the Class Ring Committee, II, and the Junior Reception Committee. Dot was one of the pretty girls who sold candy at the Senior Play, and she was also in "Marcheta." THOMAS, JOSEPH HICKEY "A merrier' man Within the limits of becoming 'mirth I never spent an houns talk withal." "Tom" was the leading comedian of our class. At his slightest motion, the entire class would be attention, and whenever he would spring one of the many tricks in his bag, they would be in an uproar. "Tom" was one of the Track Squad, 111, IV, and also on the Football Squad, II, III. His Sophomore year he piloted the good ship, 'fClass of Twenty- four," and was Class Treasurer his Jun- ior year. L I TUSITALA MILDRED GRACE HOPKINS "To her a frolic was ot high delight, A frolic she would hunt for day and night." That's "Milly" all over. She was al- ways just bubbling over with fun. How she could giggle! If you teased her about the color of her hair, she somehow turned the joke on you. She certainly could be witty at times. She sold candy at the Senior Play and lots of it. ISABEL HOVANES IAN "Her ways are ways of pLeiasant'hess." Isabel not only managed to master her lessons, but found time to make many friends. She always worked earnestly and enjoyed every minute of her school hours. She had the honor of being in the Upper Third. Good luck, Isabel. ROBERT HENRY HOWE, "Never do today what you can put of 'till tomorrow? "Bang" was one of those easy-going fellows who had far rather stay home and sleep than come to school, yet he was full of "pep" when the right time came. He made the Football Team QIVJ and showed his grit and ability under fire. TUSITALA DUNCAN GRAHAM JACKSON "A simple, guileless, childlike man, Content to live where life began." There you have Duncan. He was not anxious to hold office or to be on commit- tees, but was content to sit back and watch. Now don't get the idea that "Dune" was a shirker. Far from that, for he would do anything obliging when asked, and he contributed to the success of "Marcheta." His scholastic standing on the Honor Roll, too, shows that he did much with his books. WALTER FRANKLIN J AQUITH "Men of few words are the best men." "Jakey's" favorite indoor sport was dashing down to the lunch counter from Chemistry IV. He could beat the school's best sprinter at that distance, that is, if a dish of ice cream awaited him at tape. Otherwise from this excitement, "Jal2ey" was shy and bashful but we suspect he had powers of quiet observation. NORMAN FRANCIS JEANNOTTE "The cold neutrality of an impartial Judge." Norman was always neutral,-as one would say in politics, non-partisan. He was a musician and played violin in the orchestra for two years. It was his greatest ambition to be an accountant and we wish him success in this career if he undertakes it. TUSITALA JOHN THOMAS KELLY "None but himself oem be his parallel." Football II, III, IV, Athletic Council II, III, IV, Captain Basketball II, III, Tattler Reporter III, Junior Reception Committee III, Track III, IV, Class President IV, Captain Track IV, "Mar- cheta" IV, Senior Council IV. "Jackie" was the shining star of '24, We shouldn't be surprised if, in time, "Jack- ie" Wound up his career as President of "These here United States." MARY ELIZABETH KELLY "Ever 'ready with CL smile." Mary certainly took life easy. Never hurried, never rattled, daily she greeted us with a cheery smile. It is true that she liked to whisper occasionally! In the home economics course she proved her domestic ability. Mary loves children and with her love of household work, she should make a happy ruler of some home. May the smile you had in '24 remain with you always! EARL. VICTOR KENISTON "But, sure, he's proud, and yet his pride becomes him." Earl was proud, yet was not what is known as "stuck upf' and without his proud air he wouldn't have been one half as popular in school. He was in the Boys' Glee Club II and was also on the Ticket Committee for "Marcheta." Earl was christened "Duke" by his friends, and the 'title certainly fitted him. TUSITALA J 011-IN ORVILLE KENNEY "One universal grin." Always "grinning" was Orville. His particular vanity was his hair, which was always combed back in a somewhat lengthy pompadour. When on the Junior Dance Committee, he delighted in making perilous trips on a step-ladder to the Auditorium balcony to decorate it for the dance. Orville was a great hand at managing his "Eagles," and in future years we expect to hear of him as the successor of "Jawn" McGraw. FRANCIS VINCENT KILBRIDE "Music is well said to be the speech of angels." Quiet and unassuming, smiling and cheerful, Francis wasn't like most fiery- haired fellows, for he never got angry. How he could play that piano! He' was pianist for the orchestra and Mandolin Club in his senior year. He also played for "Marcheta"-in fact, what would "Marcheta" have- been without Francis? 'Member how dignified we seniors felt marching into the hall Wednesdays, with Francis at the piano? JOHN LEONARD KILLKELLEJY 'tFor'rn, features, intellect, Were such as might at once Cmnmancl and win all hearts." "Len's" rosy cheeks have always been the wonder of the school, and 'since being informed one Wednesday morn in As- sembly that his complexion came from his eating an apple a day, we suspect that "Len" has a private little apple tree of his own. In addition to his rosy cheeks, "Len" is the proud possessor of the following record: Tattler Reporter II, III, Athletic Editor Tattler IV, Ath- letic Editor Class Book IV, Varsity Foot- ball II, III, IV, Captain Football IV, Member A. A. Council IV, Upper Third, Class Orator. ' Y TUSITALA MARJO'RY DELORA KIMBALL "Bright as the sim her smile the gazers' strikes Arid like the sim she smiles on all alike." There was never a girl like "Marge" Gay and sober, noisy and quiet, she could be one just as easily as the other. She had a lovely way of smiling' and did it exceptionally well. To "M'arge', it was "a smile in time saves a formal introduc- tion."' She was on the Junior Reception Committee and sold candy at the Senior Play. ELLA ELIZA KING "A daughter of the gods, divinely tall, And mo-st divinely fair." Ella's nimble lingers must have been busy most of her spare time. Her pretty sweaters were the envy of the classroom. We anticipate that she'll be the success- ful manager of a fancy-work store of her own one of these days. She sold candy at the Senior Play and took part in many local theatricals. MARY LAZOTT "A girl who can work, a girl who can play, A girl wh,o's a true friend every clay." Mary was a little body, but what a big place she held in the hearts of her classmates! She showed her ability to work while she was on the Tattler staff as Alumni Editor, and everyone will agree that she did enjoy good times. Best of luck, little pal! Freshman So- cial Committee, Tattler Reporter II, Class Pin Committee, Junior Reception Committee, Alumni Editor IV, Upper Third. TUSITALA CAMILLEN EDNA LEDOUX "Affection, warm and faith sincere, Arid soft humanity are here." One hardly knew when Camille was in a room, she was so quiet and unobtrusive. Asking questions seemed to be her chief hobby. Remember how she used to quiz us just before history or English, and also how we in our turn quizzed her about grammar in our junior year? She made a charming little candy girl at the Senior Play. ELEANOR SYBILI LESLIE "Spirited, frail, naively bold, Her hair a rajjfleol crest of gold." Eleanor's sweet manners and tact Won her a place in the hearts of all with whom she came in contact. Just read her list of activities if you would know how popular she was with her class- mates. Vice-President II, Ring Commit- tee II, Mandolin Club III, IV, Reception Committee III, "Marcheta" IV, Assist- ant Exchange Editor of Tattler III, EX- change Editor IV, Senior Play IV, Vale- dictorian IV. LILLIAN VERNA LEWIS "I well believe thou hast a mind that suits With this thy fair arwl outward charac- ter." We know that Lillian did possess an excellent mind, because we can remember the day she conducted an English class and did it to perfection, also because she was in the Upper Third. She ought to make a good "school-marm." Withal she was one of the most vivacious girls in N. H. S. She took part in "Marcheta" and was, besides, one of' the hard-work- ing Paragraph Writers. TUSITALA BERNADETTE ELIZABETH LYOANS "Where the month is sweet and the eyes intelligent, the're's always the look of beauty, with cz right hea1't." Bernadette was one of the frivolous pupils in "The Charm School." No won- der the play was such a success with girls like her in the cast! In her junior year she helped to make our Junior Dance a very pleasant affair by being on that committee. May you ever have as many friends as you have made in N. H. S., Bernadette! J EAN MACDUFFIE "How sweet and gracious, even 'in com- mon speech, Is that fine sense which men call Confr- teswy!" Jean has the honor of being the young- est to graduate in the class of 1924. Yet her more mature ideas and manners be- lie the fact that she was class baby. Be- sides being a fluent conversationalist, she was also a talented singer. Her re- cord was one of which she might justly be proud. MARY ELIZABETH MANNING "Silence is only G0'Wl'I7l6'l'ldl1bl6.,, "May" was a girl who did things with so little talk that We didn't know Very much about her. She was well liked and at all the school dances her card was al- Ways full. Here's hoping her life is as Well filled with pleasant things as her dance cards always were of names. She was one of the Chatter Girls in "Mar- cheta." TUSITALA ALBERT HYATT' MARCUS "No, I was not born under a rhyming planet." But that is hard to believe after seeing some of those poems and jingles that "Al" wrote while he was Personal Editor of the Tattler IV. Albert had many abilities. Besides being a walking dic- tionary and current events paper, he was an actor, as he showed by taking one of the leading parts in the Senior Play, and senior year he decided to show his ath- letic abilities by making the Track Team. MARTIN GEORGE MARKARIAN "What's in a name?" Martin's pet hobby was answering in class to everybody else's name, whether Ruth, John, or what not. He loved to talk and could argue his point for hours. With his oratory, he should make a fine lawyer. His hobby was buying and sell- ing used autos. One week he drove a Ford, the next a Hudson. Martin's ability as a student should win honors for him in his college life, for when he wanted to study in Nashua High, his average was always high. CAMILLE ROSANA MARTEL "A blooming lady, a conspicuous flower, Admired for hier beauty, for her sweet- ness." We shall always remember Camille as leading lady in "Marcheta." She was very popular, with a long list of activi- ties to prove it. Class Pin Committee II, Student's Council III, Junior Dance and Reception Committees III, "Marcheta" IV, Vice-President IV, Senior Dance Committee IV, Student Council IV, Chairman of Candy Committee of Senior Play. TUSITALA DORIS LOUISE MARTIN "A truer, nobler, trustier heart, More loving or loyal, never beat." To speak of how much Doris was liked by every one would be superfluous. We'll let her list speak for itself: Glee Club I, III, IV, Junior Reception Committee III, Mandolin 'Club I, II, III, Trailic Duty, Senior Play Candy Committee, "Marcheta" IV. JOSEPH MCCART'HY "Breathes there a man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said, 'Oh-how I hate to get ont of becl?' " "Joe" obtained fame in school as a traliie cop and some day he may make use of the knowledge thus obtained and become a real traffic director. He was also as clever' a little bluffer as the next one. Lucky Boy!! One of "Joe's" characteristics, besides his red hair, was his habitual sleepy look about 8.15. He worked hard all through the four years to help N. H. S. to produce snappy, win- ning teams in football and baseball. Last, but not least, he was in the Upper Third. ISABEL LORRAINE MCCLURE 'lStill senile, my dear ,' A frown or tear V Would mar that cheerful face." "Izzy" arrived at- N. I-I. S. her sopho- more year, and her cheerful ways gained many friends for her. She never dis- played anger, but always seemed satis- fied with things as they were. And, too, she could be depended upon for her les- sons at all times which resulted in her being in the Upper Third. Here's to your future, "Izzy!" TUSITALA CHARLES ORVILLE2 MCCULLOM "I love fool's experiments.. I am always making them." , 'iMac" did love to experiment with different methods in order to produce a noise and was usually successful. He was a champion noise-maker during his career in N. H. S. "Mac" played Base- ball II and IV and Basketball II and IV, and was also in "Marchetti," where his dancing ability stood him in good stead. MARION AGNES MCGLYNN "To those who know her not, no words can paint, And those who know her know all words are faint." Brilliant, talented, and clever, Marion was one of the most gifted members of the class of 1924. Not only as an Honor Student., but also as a musician in our school orchestra, she displayed her versa- tility. Fun-loving and loyal, Marion's advent was always welcomed with pleas- ure at all class gatherings. RUTH ANNHDTE MILAN "Light and dark, short or tall, She sets a spring' to snare them allf' "Along came Ruth, and to tell the truth, she stole their hearts away." The words of the old song describe our Ruth to a HT." Carefree and merry as the day is long, a friend warranted to drive away the blues, Ruth did her share in brightening our lives at N. H. S. She was a member of the committee for our Freshman Party and Junior Dance. , I , I TUSITALA HELEN MARY MOLLOY "Her glancing eyes I may compare To diamond dews on rosebuds rare." "Nellie" was one of our most talented classmates with a secure berth in the Upper Third. Oh, how she could dance, and draw, and solve Math problems! She was well chosen to serve on the Candy Committee at the Senior Play, for who could resist her magnetic influence and charming appearance? As a Rus- sian dancer in "Marcheta" she merited much praise. May success attend every future eifort! ANNA GERTRUDE MORAN M There's a sense of humor Beneath her quiet miefh And those who have discovered it A treasure rare have seen." Anna was-always ready to smile at a good joke, especially in the bookkeeping rooms. With her inseparable companion, Anna Collins, she sometimes caused study-room teachers anxiety with her whispering. She was mighty pretty, too, and had a knowing twinkle in her eye. We suspect her of holding volumes of secrets. B ER NARD MORAN "His pencil drew what eier his soul designed." "Bernie" was always sketching! A few hasty lines and behold! there you were in black and white. However, he couldn't have devoted all his time to his art, for we know he studied-whether he chose to recite or not-and held several responsible positions in the class. As- sistant Baseball Manager III, Baseball Manager IV, Art Editor of the Zlattler III, Editor of the Tattler IV, Athletic Council IV, Upper Third. r TUSITALA TERESA MORAN "My delight is in proper young men." Many people have hobbies of collect- ing souvenirs, "Tessie's" was collecting friendships from young men, and she surely did collect a good many. But she didn't spend all her time this way, for she played in the Mandolin Club II, III, IV, was on the Junior Prom Committee III, and danced in "Marcheta" IV. WILLIAM CARLOS MOULTON "Never trouble Trouble, till Trouble troubles you." "Bill" would never bother people un- less they bothered him, and since no one ever bothered him, he never bothered anyone. "Bill" brought a bug to school one morning, during our freshman year, which bit several of the fellows badly. Don't be alarmed. It was only a radio bug. Some of them haven't got over the effects of it yet, and sometimes disturb "Bill" with their queries. "Bill's" idea of heaven is a sort of Sleepy Hollow. Let's hope he will sometime gain admit- tance to that paradise. E H1-JLHN MARY MULLEN "A merry heart makes a cheerful court- f6'17.CWLC6.,, No matter where Helen was, she al- ways had that keen sense of humor and contagious smile which have won so many friends for her. Yet when it came to serious matters, Helen was "right there." One could always depend on her for knowing her lessons, and her high rank on the Honor Roll gave proof of her brilliancy. In "Marcheta" she showed her ability to sing and dance, and as a Prohpetess, to furnish us amusement. TUSITALA HAROLD MULVANITY "One vast substantial smile." "Mlul" was nearly always smiling, though his brow could look like a thun- der-cloud, and his was a real smile, from one ear to the other. If he ever were marked for being happy, his grade would be one-hundred plus. "Mul" was on the Class. Ring Committee and maybe that's one reason we obtained such good look- ing rings. He was on the Football Team his whole four years in high school, and was one of the best guards Nashua ever had. He smiled his way through many battles on the gridiron. IRVING STANLEFY MUMFORD "The world is good, and the people are good, And we"re all good fellows together." He was one of our tallest classmates and measured up to his height in his cleverness as "George Boyd" in the Senior Play, and his ability to obtain a place in the Upper Third. Irving was also in the Glee Club- III. He was al- ways eager for a good time and he seemed to accomplish his desire. Leo EVEQRETT NASH "He that can have patience com have . what he will." Patience should have been Leo's middle name, for didn't he work for three whole seasons on the Football Squad before he got his letter? What patience he must have had, too, while serving on the Pin and Ring Committee II, and when draw- ing some of those fine artistic cuts for the Tattler while he was Art Editor IV! Besides being Art. Editor for the Class Book, he did much for the Track Team III and IV. It was perhaps Leo's quiet industry that gained him so many friends. TUSITALA Q LILLIAN MADELEIINEI NASH "A friend with all, An enemy with none." Lillian's jolly manners made one al- ways feel good-humored in her company. She greeted everyone and everything with a smile-even her studies. N o won- der she was in the Upper Third! 'Mem- ber the ceaseless flow of laughter that reigned in Room. 5 When Lillian felt her funniest? Here's Wishing you much suc- cess in your future undertakings, "Dill!" RUTH NELSON f'A friend who knows, and dares to say, The brave, sweet words that cheer the way." Everyone will remember Ruth's piano playing and her sweet voice, and We feel sure she will succeed in a musical career. Ruth played Basketball I, was member of the Senior Council IV, Junior Recep- tion Committee III, and Senior Play Property Committee IV. All those who know her in the class, and they were many, will remember her loyalty and happy disposition. MARGARET CARMELITA NOONAN "That virtue was suyjicvlent of herself for happiness." Margaret was petite, had black bobbed hair, dark sparkling eyes, and a sunny disposition. What qualities could pos- sibly go together better than these? None whatsoever. TUSITALA TERESA ALICE O'MEARA "A loving little life of sweet small works." Teresa was quiet, but nevertheless cheerful and ready for fun as much as any one else. She said little but heard much. Her good natured Ways and pleasant smiles gained her many friends. RUTH MAR.GARET PALMER "Forward and frolic glee was there The will to do, the soul to dare." Ruth Was here only for her last year and we then realized what we had missed the other three. She had such a pleas- ing personality that she rapidly made friends with all with Whom she came in contact. She was a good student, but if any fun-making was going on Ruth was in the midst of it. N. H. S. Wishes her adopted daughter success! MILDRED BERNIGE PARKER "Perseoe1'ance is the secret of success." Mildred was quiet and unassuming, but when it came to Math, how she did shine! She was the only girl who dared brave the danger of a course in Trigo- nometry, and we were told that she was highly successful. Mildred was con- scientious and put many of us to shame by her thoughtful, accurate recitations. TUSITALA ROY STEWART PARKER 'tHe kept his counsel and went his wayf' "Roy" joined us in sophomore year, hailing from Amherst, and quickly gained the distinction of being the most bashful boy in the class.. He was an industrious lad, with a hobby of buying and selling automobiles. When one got underneath Roy's shyness, he found a "regular fellow," and one with ambition. MILDRED PETERSON "Laugh and the wo-rlol laughs with you." "Everywhere that Mildred went her laugh was sure to go." But how we did miss it during those long weeks she was ill With scarlet fever! "Pete" made a decided "hit" as "Sally" in the Senior Play. Her musical ability has greatly improved the work of both Mandolin and Glee Clubs. Mandolin Club I, II, III, Glee Club II, III, Senior Play IV, Upper Third. ALICE SCOTT RAMSDELL "Oh, ken ye the Lass wi' the bonnie blue een? Her smile is the sweetest that ever was seen, Her cheek like the rose 0-r fresher, I ween." "Al" was always quiet around N. H. S., but when with her friends, she could chatter with the- best. "Al" had the "in- side dope" on nearly everything that happened in N. H. S., and she was pop- ular with all wholknew her, which is saying a good deal. She liked parties and was a good hostess, as many of us remember. She was in a chorus of that fine show, "Marcheta." TUSITALA HENRY LEON RICARD "A worl-smart worthy of his hire." Henry, or "Tex" as he was familiarly called, had for his greatest ambition to become a druggist, and by the way of getting experience in that line he "jerked" sodas afternoons. Don't worry, "Tex," many a registered pharmacist got his start that way. Although this Beau Brummel did not come to N. H. S. until his junior year, it did not take us long to find out what a likeable chap he was. RICH RICHARDSON RIMBACH "For or, better friend look 'ho further." "Dick" to his friends, "Bird" to his intimates. l'Dick" upheld the laurels of 1924 as the only blond sheik in the class. His winning way held him in great prominence with the ladies and his danc- ing endeared him to the feminine heart. If he had a way with the women, so also did he- have a Way with the men. His airy nature and buoyant disposition made him many friends. He was ga Tattler Reporter III, was made Associate Edi- tor of our Class Book, and was on the Upper Third. ' RAYMOND GILBERT Ross "Whatever is worth olofirlg at all is worth doing well." "Ray" took the cake as Daddy Long Legs of the class. However, in spite of the lankiness of his legs, he surely could shake 'em,. He could dance with 'the grace of Apollo. Thinking' he would like a change, "Ray" moved to Pittsburg, but after a few months' absence he decided he could not live without us and re- joined our grand old class. TUSITALA MILDRED RYNN "A moderate pace for a long race? Mildred was nothing if not independ- ent. She often came to school late and was often absent through illness, but made up for lost time when she got there. Although she seemed quiet, she was always ready for a good time. MARY JOVSEPHINE SHEA "Good nature and good sense must ever join." The class of '24 will never forget "Maizie." All sorts of duties were im- posed upon her, but she never refused to do any of them. She was full of school spirit and enthusiasm and nothing daunted her when it was a question of doing something to benefit N. H. S. Of course she was a natural ,choice for a class book paragraph writer and for Class Historian. May your willingness continue to be an inspiration to others, Mary! Mary ELIZABETH SINGLETON "The girl with the million dollar smile." Who ever saw Mary in a grouchy mood? No one. Her cheery greeting and her wonderful smile will live long in our hearts. Her graceful dancing made her very popular and she was swamped with men at all the dances. She also showed her dancing ability in "Marcheta." TUSITALA JOHN ALBERT SMALL "Mfg only books were womews looks, And fo'lly's all they taught me." "Deac" didn't learn much from "wom- en's looks," but along other lines his ed- ucation was not neglected. He earned his letter in Football II, III, IV, in Baseball II, III, IV, and in Basketball III and IV. He was also a point scorer for '24 in the Class Track Meet, and when he had time from baseball was a member of the regular Track Team. He was a Freshman Tattler Reporter and was on the Junior Dance Committee. In "Marcheta," "Deac"' showed some talent which none of us knew he had. IRENE ELIZABETH SOMERVILLE "Mwy Heaven its choicest blessings send, On such ot girl and such a friend." Every word of the above quotation is meant for Irene, for she was always a delightful classmate and friend to all, made for playful wit and laughter. Irene immensely loved playing' good-natured jokes. 'Member her love for Economics? Here's to Kline!" STEVEN STEGER "Still waters run deep." "Chunky" was one of the quiet kind who only spoke when spoken to. But in spite of his silence he was very capable and handled the class money his senior year in a creditable manner. He was an exponent of the art of Basketball II, III, and Captain IV. He was on the Traffic Squad IV and between times found time to take part in the duties of the A. A. and Senior Council. TUSITALA AGNES KATHRYN SUGHRUE "She lives content and envies none." Agnes always seemed contented, due to the fact that she sincerely enjoyed her four years at N. H. S. And, too, Agnes found much pleasure in being saleslady in one of our big stores. Some day we expect to hear of her as head of a large business concern. Good luck, Agnes! JOHN PATRICK SULLIVAN "A youth with joyous thought." You have all heard before how Johnny knew this was the best class to be with, and that is why he came back. Of course, this is the best class, we admit it, and appreciate his good sense in coming back to graduate with us. John was al- ways "slow but surel' in his ways, and always had a smile on his face. Here's hoping the best 0' luck to you, John. WILLIAM MITCHELL SWEENY "I will study and get ready, and my chance will come." "Bill" was an industrious worker in N. H. S. and also afternoons outside of school. He supported all the athletic teams and rarely missed a game. Unas- suming and modest, "Bill" nevertheless made friends with all. With such ad- mirable traits we know he'll make his way in life. ' TUSITALA DAVID TILLOTSON "Silence is golden." "Adjie" was quiet around school, but once outside he forgot all about being quiet. He was on the HaIlowe'en Social Committee I, a Tattler Reporter II, and on the Junior Dance Committee III. "Adjie's" senior year was especially busy, as he was on the A. A. Council, the Senior Play Property Committee, and in "Marcheta." He won his letter in Basketball II, III and IV, was chosen Manager in IV, and the result was some very good games. He also Won his letter in Track III and IV, and Football IV. Actions are greater than words-so you may judge for yourself. PAUL EDWARD JAMES TOBIAS "He was straight and strong, and his eyes were blue As the summer meletifng of sky and sea." In any athletic activity, Paul was right there and he did much to make ours a winning school in sports. In ad- dition he was an "all 'round fellow," and he won for himself a place in the Upper Third. Football I, II, III, IV, Basket- ball II, III, IV,,Assistant Manager Base- ball III, Track Squad II, III, Captain Traific Squad III, Athletic Council IV, Senior Council IV, Play Property Com- mittee, "M:archeta" IV. LILLIAN ELEANORE VASSAR "The force of her aww 'merit makes her way." Lillian was just the nicest girl one would wish to know and her 'number of friends proved this. She was usually carefree, though before tests she asked her friends more questions than enough. She had, what was to many, a Wonder- ful accomplishment, and that was a lovely handwriting. It certainly was the envy of some of us. TUSITALA VIOLA ANGENLINEQ WARBURTON "A maiden never bold, of spirit so still and quiet that her motion blushes at herselff' When we spoke of blushes, we in- variably thought of Viola. At the least provocation, her face would flush with a color not at all unbecoming. This, how- ever, never seemed to interfere with her recitations, for she always had an an- swer ready, which accounted for her ranking in the Upper Third. We are sure Viola will make a very capable sec- retary in the near future. PHILIP WEl1s:MAN "He had only one vanity, he thought he could give advice better than any other pevsonf' That's all' right, Phil, none of us are perfect, and your classmates liked you none the less. If he couldn't study his lesson and know it otherwise, he'd mem- orize it. He was a success as an actor, too, in his role of a twin in the "Charm School," and as the: choleric father in "Marcheta." He also sang in the Glee Club for two years and was in the Upper Third. KENNETH WHIPPLE " 'Tis strange what a, man may do, and a woman yet think him an angel." In other words, whatever he did, was quite the right thing in the eyes of the fair sex. He 'was the life of any party- why not, with such a smile and an Apollo-like Visage? He was on the Property Committee in the Senior Play, took part in "Marcheta," and was an Assistant Editor of the Class Book. TUSITALA VERA MADELINE WHITE "I-Iappflness is a natural flower of beauty." Did you ever see Vera when she was not happy? In school or out of school she was always the same, even when waiting on table at a "Hi-Y" supper, and that is going some. How she did Work on the Senior Play Property Com- mittee! Perhaps that accounts for the pretty settings that were in the show. Vera also showed her ability as a dancer in "Marcheta" IV. - WARD PARKER WHITNEY "I awoke one morning and found myself famous." We really believe some day Ward will be famous because of his acting. What an inexhaustible supply of fun-making he did have! In the Athletic Associa- tion entertainments II and III, and as a blackfaced comedian, he showed his tal- ent in the circus take-off in the Senior Play, and in "lVIarcheta." A cartoonist, too, was Ward. He was also a musi- cian. Name the instruments that Ward Parker couldn't play, and you will find them few. CECELIA LOUISE WINN "I fear no loss, I hope no gain, I envy none, I none disdain." Courteous and considerate, Cecelia was a distinct asset to any gathering. A talented musician, she was ever ready to contribute her share to any social hour. Cecelia was especially noted for her good humor and loyalty, a friend Worth having. TUSITALA ERVIN RICHARDSON WINN "Go west, young man! Go west!" Since Erwin has spent some time in the western section of the country, the love of the mountains and other natural won- ders of the west is instilled in his heart. He was always telling of the beauties of California. He studied hard and took up radio as a hobby. He was a member of the Track Squad III and IV. '24 will remember him as its tallest member. MAVIS ELEANOR WITHAM "She moves a. goddess and she looks a queen." Mavis has displayed her dramatic ability in more than one instance. Her clever portrayal, of the sentimental sec- retary in "The Charm School" was one of the hits of the evening. Mavis was also a history shark, as anyone who was fortunate enough to have been in her class will testify. She was as popular as she was talented, and that's going some! ' J 0'HN ADAMS WORTHEN, JR. "Friendship above all ties does bind the heart And faith in friendship is the noblest part." We had with us our "well-known busi- ness man" in high school, for John was both business-like and popular. He was able to talk on all subjects brought up for discussion and often proved as help- ful as a textbook in answering questions. He had several hobbies, one of which was music. He was Assistant Business Man- ager of the Tatit.le'r III, and Class Book Paragrapher, a Class Prophet, and stood fifth in the Upper Third. Uhr Gllarm nf '24 For four happy years we've been together, Four happy years that have been, oh, so short! Four happy years in all kinds of weather Shoulder to shoulder we bravely have fought. To keep our school honor bright and unstained, To keep our school spirit strong and awake, To iind that something from each year we've gained All these are the things that have been at stake. Now is the time of our graduation And when it is over we all must part, Perhaps to spread through many a nation, Perhaps to remain where we got our start. It matters not if our destination Be to the very extremes of the earth, It matters not if every vocation Be as different as sorrow and mirth. We'll always look back and lovingly think Of those joyous days that went all too fast, And always and ever they'll be a link, Binding together the present and past.

The entire play abounded in excitement, humor, and clever acting, and reflected credit not only upon the leading lady and man, Margaret Bearse and David Adams, but upon each supporting member of the cast, and upon the faculty com- mittee, comprised of Miss Preston, Miss Brown, and Mrs. Sweetser, as well as the property committee and the coach, Mrs. Blanche Varnuin Colter. The first rise of the curtain discloses Albert Marcus, in the guise of David MacKenzie, an energetic Q?J young law student, apparently engrossed in study. Marcus's portrayal of that sleepy, rather grumpy gentleman was distinctly worthy of mention. A moment later, much to the disgruntlement of the irascible David, Philip Weisman, as Tim Simpkins, makes a characteristic entrance, shrilly whistling a popular melody. When he is closely followed by Herman Connell as his twin brother Jim, the comedy setting is practically complete, for throughout the play the brothers engage in good-humored bantering. TUSITALA 57 The three chums are in the midst of a heated discussion as to "whose turn it is to put the Wash away," when Irving Mumford, as George Boyd, an expert accountant, enters dole- fully and announces that he has lost his job. This, coupled with the newly arrived information of the discontinuance of their own allowances, bringsqthe twins face to face with the inevitable. All their evasions and manoeuverings have been in vain, the much dreaded moment has arrived. At last they must get a job! At this sad point, David produces a special delivery letter addressed by a firm of attorneys to Austin Bevans, the absent member of the quintet. In the midst of wild speculation as to "what Austin's been up to," David Adams enters as Austin Bevans, the dapper young automobile salesman in question. Tearing the letter open eagerly, he learns that his aunt has died without having made a will, and that therefore the school for young ladies which she conducted in her lifetime has fallen to him. Austin's four chums greet this disclosure with shrieks of mirth, which hilarity is quickly replaced by astonishment, when Austin declares his intention not only of conducting the school, but of doing so in his own unusual method. In spite of J im's laughing remark that "Austin's face would wreck a thousand ladies' seminariesf' and in the midst of the taunts and jibes of his chums, Austin proceeds to unfold his idea of the perfect education of a girl. Charm and attractiveness are, in his opinion, far more essential to a girl's success than Latin, Greek, and mathematics. In view of this fact, he will make his aunt's school avowedly a "charm school." These plans are a bit shaken, however, a few moments later, when Horace Brownin the role of Mr. Johns, a gruff, middle-aged banker, who controls the school by mortgage, stalks in with the calm assurance that "he has come to put the young man' out of his agony." Imagine his indignation when he learns of Bevans plans! At length, after much contro- versy, Mr. Johns consents to a compromise. Bevans promises to retain, as second in command, Miss Hays, who is "er-a-sort of er-a connection by marriage" to Mr. Johns, and to avoid any immediate contact with his pupils, and Johns, in his turn, promises not to interfere in Mr. Bevans' program of action and to allow his niece, Elise Benadotti, to remain in the school. 58 TUSITALA The unemployment situation is now solved and the four chums, whom Bevans promises to make professors in dancing, his- tory and accounting, prepare for their departure to the school. The scene of action now changes to the main hall of the Fairview Boarding School for.Ladies. Here, one of the gay- est and most colorful scenes of the play is enacted when the Senior Class, hearing a rumor that their new principal is a grouchy old man, hold an indignation meeting. After coming to the unanimous decision to leave the school immediately upon their first meeting with their new principal, they turn their thoughts to lighter things and all the Seniors, including Margaret Bearse, Florence Baybutt, Elizabeth Bryant, Eva Carr, Gertrude Cohen, Lorraine Dufour, and Bernadette Lyons, join in a lively dance. Margaret Bearse, who, with gaiety and piquancy plays the role of Elise Benadotti, the pretty, vivacious 'president of the Senior Class, sings a gay song, which is followed by another by Gertrude Cohen. Mildred Peterson as Sally Boyd, a frivolous flapper, introduces the comedy element. into this scene very cleverly. In the midst of the hilarity, Eleanor Leslie, as the beloved Miss Hays, returns unexpectedly from a visit and is greeted uproariously by her pupils. Eleanor was adorable as the beautiful and dignified Miss Hays, and her acting Was one of the brightest spots in the play. l When the pupils scamper noisily away to their classes, Miss Hays is left alone with Mavis Witham, Who plays the role of Miss Curtis, the lackadaisical school treasurer, with a perfect grace and skill. Miss Curtis then tells Miss Hays "dreadful news" of her meeting with Mr. Bevans, the new principal, and Mr. Johns, who, we now learn, is Miss Hays' divorced husband. Mavis cleverly affects distress as she begs Miss Hays "to lock herself in her room until the brute has left." Miss Hays, not at all abashed by the prospects of a meeting with her "former" husband, greets him, a few mo- ments later, with calm indifference. When he resents her at- titude and asks her if she doesn't remember when she was his Wife, she replies that "it was for such a short time and so very long ago that she has really quite forgotten!" ' As soon as Miss Hays learns of the girls' decision, she tri- umphantly brings the news to Mr. Bevans. He immediately TUSITALA 59 calls a meeting of the girls and an extremely humorous scene follows, when the girls, charmed by his appearance, decide to revoke their decision, and find it difiicult to explain their sud- den change of mind. Tlhe acting of Elizabeth Bryant, when she fearfully begged to be allowed to remain, was decidedly amusing. From this point, the action of the play moves swiftly, various complications arising when the girls, upon meeting the new professors, promptly fall in love with them, and Bevans finds it difficult to hold his lively chums to their promise never to entertain any of his pupils. He even finds it difficult to keep his own promise to Mr. Johns, and many, especially his jealous rival, George Boyd, suspect him of not living up to his agreement when he grants Elise's request to allow her to write him daily letters to improve her English. However, he keeps his promise strictly enough to convince Elise that he does not love her, and on that account she runs away to her old nurse's home in Bridgeport. The entire school is aroused and Bevans leaves immediately in search of her. George Boyd, who throughout the play has played the role of the hopeless lover of Elise, follows, angry with the world in general and Bevans in particular. The Simpkins twins are suddenly called home and are very downcast until they learn that Sally Boyd, with whom they are both in love, plans to at- tend Vassar, a short distance -from their home town, where- upon they depart happily. When Mr. Johns arrives, on hearing of Elise's latest prank, he finds that Bevans has returned with the culprit, and he proceeds to scold Bevans and to inform him that' he will be replaced immediately by Miss Hays. Miss Hays is so well pleased by this arrangement that she at last consents to a private interview with him concerning "the general welfare of the school" and the two make their exit together. Then comes the striking close of the play when Bevans, now alone with Elise, facing her with a torrent of wrath and blame for his failure, suddenly and unexpectedly succumbs to her charms, thereby proving the futility of a "charm school" --since charm is an innate quality.

S., the school has had four football teams, four baseball teams, three basketball teams, and three track teams. These teams, since the graduation of the Class of '21, have had a majority of '24's, both in letter- men and candidates. The girls' basketball teams cannot be overlooked. Our Freshman year found a class league in bas- ketball, the Sophomore girls winning the championship, and since then two teams have represented the school- in successive years, and have made an excellent showing. Among their op- ponents have been girls from Manchester, Concord, Haverhill, and Milford High Schools. FOOTBALL The football team in 1920 had a rather disastrous season. This was due to an extra hard schedule, which called for games with Lowell, Everett, Haverhill, and Manchester on successive Saturdays, and a game with Lawrence High, two weeks after the Manchester game. The scores of these games were: Lowell 7-0, Everett 13-0, Haverhill62-7, Manchester 21-0, and Lawrence 7-0, all defeats, due to the outweighed Nashua eleven. Nashua's only victory was a 21 to 13 win over Leominster, the only team on the schedule that did not 62 TUSITALA outweigh us. Tlhe team was captained by George Nash, '22, managed by Ralph Dumaine, '21, and coached by C. W. Law- rence, a member of the faculty. In 1921 Arthur Ryan, a well-known local athlete, took the place of Mr. Lawrence, who had resigned. Raymond Leahy, '22, managed the team, and George Nash, '22, was again cap- tain. The season was but a sequel to the preceding one, as the team lost six games, won one, and played a scoreless game with Lowell, on the home grounds. The team. had a wonder- ful, never-say-die spirit, but the support of the student body was lacking. . The 1922 team was also coached by Arthur Ryan. Paul Tobias was the captain, and Fred Dobens, '23, manager. The season showed a decided improvement over the two preceding seasons :I four games were won, those against Newmarket, Keene, Newburyport, and the Alumni, two were ties, against Colby Academy, 6-6, and Amesbury, scoreless, the other four games were lost to Lowell, Framingham, Concord and Man- chester. This team was largely composed of '24's and left golden prospects for the season of 1923. The services of Raymond Pendelton were secured to fill the place vacatediby the. resignationof Arthur Ryan, and under his coaching the 1923 team showed the best record of any football team representing Nashua High in recent years. It won seven out of eight games. Its victorious games were as follows: Lowell, St. J oseph's, Framingham, Concord, Proc- tor Academy, Dean 'Academy Seconds, and Meriden, Con- necticut. The only defeat suffered was the Manchester game, by a score of 7-0, won on the only fluke of the game. Our team was the first in New Hampshire to play an intersectional game, that with Meriden High, one of Connecticut's fastest outfits. The result of the game was a 3-0 victory in our favor. Nashua scored 169 points to its opponents' 29 during the whole season, setting an excellent record for Nashua's future teams. The following men earned their letters: Captain Killkelley, Manager Adams, Bruce, Carroll, Downey, Drumm, Howe, Mul- vanity, Nash, Small, Dobens, '25, Webster, '25, Diggins, '26, Kilbane, '26. .

John Kelly of '24, was elected captain, and Fred Dobens, '23, manager. David Stevens, former Springfield Y. M. C. A. College athlete, offered his services as coach. The season was quite successful, the team winning more than half its games. Manchester alone succeeded in winning both of its games, one of these games, however, by a very close margin. The same captain and manager were elected for the following year. The 1922-23 basketball season was very successful. The team won the majority of its games, but was again twice beaten by small margins by Manchester, our consistent "jinx." David Stevens was again the coach, and we owe much thanks to him for his good work. Stephen Steger was elected captain, and David Tillotson, manager of the 1924 quintet, both men being stars on the floor for the past two seasons. The 1923-24 season was quite successful, the team win- ning 11 out of its 18 games. The team was coached by Mr. Pendleton, who had such success with the football team. The season started with a victory over Lowell Vocational, followed by such victories as Milford, Lowell, Haverhill, Marblehead, Rochester, Essex "Aggies," Revere, with defeats by Salem, Manchester, Beverly, and Winchester. Manchester again proved to be our "jinX," defeating us twice by small scores, and eliminating us from the state tournament at Durham. The lettermen were: Captain Steger, Carroll, Diggins, '26, Dobens, '25, McCullom, Small, Tillotson, and Tobias. BASEBALL The baseball team of 1921 had a very poor season. Ten games were lost, six games won, and one game tied, that played with Portsmouth in the Port. City, through nine in- nings of pouring rain, the score 6-6. C. W. Lawrence coached the team, George Adams, '21, was captain, and Edward Shea, '21, manager. In 1922 the services of Nashua's old stand-by, T. J. Leon- ard, were secured to fill the place of Mr. Lawrence, who re- signed. The season was fairly successful, the team winning TUSITALA 55 nine of its seventeen games. The latter end of the season the team reached its stride and took many successive games, in fact because of their good showing were given a game with the local K. of C. team. The game was a close one and re- sulted in a 5-3 defeat for the schoolboys. This team was cap- tained by Kenneth Moran, '23, and managed by George Nash, '22. 4 The 1923 team came through the season a howling suc- cess, taking a large majority of its games and capturing the title of State Champions. The team defeated Waltham, Pin- kerton, took two games from Framingham, broke even with Lowell and St. J oseph's, and capped the climax by defeating our old rivals, Manchester, by such a large score in the first game that the upstate team broke the contract and refused to face the locals again. The team was captained by Edmund Downey, '24, and managed by Paul Tobias, '24. Coach Leon- ard then resigned, satisfied with his success as our baseball mentor. The 1924 team has had a late start, owing to weather con- ditions at the present writing QApril 155. The battery candi- dates have worked out-in the basement for a few weeks and outdoor practice has started but a week and half before the first game. Faculty Coach Raymond Pendleton coaches the team, and with seven veterans the prospects are bright for another championship team. Francis Carroll, '24, is captain, and Bernard Moran, '24, manager. TRACK In 1922 a track team was authorized by the Athletic As- sociation, and Norman I. Bearse, popular member of our faculty, and former track star for New Hampshire College, offered his services as track coach, without any desire for compensation. It was through him that track was rein- stated as a major sport in Nashua High. Thomas Killkelley, '23, was captain, and Joseph Breen, '24, was manager. The team competed in the Kiwanis meet, and in a dual meet with Manchester, and made a very creditable showing in spite of the fact that training was not started till late in the season. The men who received their letters were: Captain Killkelley, 66 TUSITALA '23, Chaplin, '23, Hickey, '24, Kelly, '24, Manager Breen, '24. In 1923, the track team started early training at the Y. M. C. A., and track got its real start in the school. Thomas Killkelley, '23, was captain, Craig Haines, '23, manager, and Mr. Bearse again took charge of the team. The team made the best showing of any high school in the state, second only to the Tilton Preparatory School, whose men train the year around for such meets. It took first place' at the -Triangular Meet at Derry, against Pinkerton and Manchester, best high school place at the Interscholastic Meet at the State Univer- sity and Kiwanis Meet at Manchester, and took, by a great margin, every first place except the shot-put in a dual meet with Haverhill at the Haverhill Stadium. A shield was donated to N. H. S. by several prominent business men to promote competition in the annual class meet. The Interclass Meet was held April 26, and our class, the Class of '24, attained the honor of being Iirst to have its numerals on the shield."' The 1924 track team has bright prospects, with several veterans, and the continued coaching of Mr. Bearse. The team has been training at the local Y. M. C. A. and is ready to step out on the cinders when conditions of weather and track per- mits. Jack Kelly, '24, is captain, and Paul Bryant, '24, man- ager. On April 15 he announced the following meets are probable for the season of 1924: University of New Hamp- shire Meet, Kiwanis Meet at Manchester, a dual meet with Pinkerton, one with Manchester, and as in 1923, triangular meets with Pinkerton and Manchester.

We do hereby revoke all previous wills and codicils thereof, declaring them null and void. We do hereby give, bequeath, and devise to have and to hold, to them and their heirs forever, the following: First: To Headmaster Walter Scott Nesmith we extend our sincerest well wishes, in testimony whereof we assign to 70 TUSITALA him the office of executor of this momentous document. Fur- thermore, in compliance with a long established custom, we be- queath unto him for the embellishment of his cranial extremity a bottle of "Mr, Peck's Original Compound," guaranteed to make a billiard ball sprout. S6C0'I'Ld.' To Miss Preston, we leave a silvery-toned bell of greater volume than that which has pealed forth each noon to dismiss the inhabitants of Room 1. We also leave to her, unmastered and unmodified, the works of Cicero et otlii. These works have helped in bringing about our downfall. Third: To Coach Pendleton we bequeath the ruins of one football, one basketball, and one baseball team. May he develop teams as courageous from these ruins, for we fear that such victorious teams will never be formed again. Among other dilapidated chattels we find the remnants of a once noble track team, this we bequeath to Coach Bearse. That is, we leave him the track, since the team, after the man- ner of the famous "one hoss shay," will go to pieces on our burial day. Fourth: To Eusebius Godfrey Hood, "to the marvelous story teller" who has regaled us these past four years with his tales of strange adventure, we leave a fund of anecdotes, humorous and otherwise, with which to amuse, advise, and educate future Carusos or Galli-Curcis. Fifth: We have witnessed the unremitting toil with which Custodian Shea performs his manifold duties. In or- der to lessen somewhat these arduous labors, we bequeath unto him aerial ladders, noiseless vacuum cleaners, and an artificial knock for the radiators to obviate the necessity of building a fire, and also a guaranteed alarm clock. C Guaran- teed not to go offJ. We also advise him to secure a patent on his original method of performing his duties. Sixth: To Misses Jacobson, Dowd, Cramer, and others who have tried in vain to teach us the rudiments of the Eng- lish language, we return unlearned, though mutilated, the various declensions and verb forms and other adj uncts neces- sary to a complete knowledge of our mother tongue. We also leave a long list of suitable adjectives to be used when refer- ring to us, the dear departed. Heading the list is "invin- cible," which is a very apt term. TUSITALA '71 Seventh: To Miss Coffey and others we leave the wars of the ancients. We also bequeath them our knowledge of the fact that Thermopylae was not fought in 1776, and that the battle of Marathon was not an ancient modification of a track meet. Eighth: Mrs. Sweetser we endow with the privilege of teaching our class history to future classes. We realize that this will be a welcome addition to the curriculum. We also wish to leave a few facts to be taught in relation to the present Senior History course such as: "The Mayflower Compact is the name of the rouge carried by the Pilgrim Maidens," and "Paul Revere used a Ford sedan on his epochal ride." Ninthf Having found to our sorrow that there was no royal road to Geometry, we have revised our text books and recommend the revision for future use. Among the revised definition one can find the following: "A straight line is the distance from where you are to the lunch counter at recess". "Parallel lines can never meet unless you bend them." "Things equal to the same thing are equal to anything else." Tenth: To Mr. Peck, who has blasted many chemical careers as efficaciously as T. N. T. could have done, we be- queath a matchless diamond of wonderful brilliancy, which has taken from our treasury the stupendous sum of-ten cents, one dime, the tenth part of ia dollar, with this bequest goes the assurance that we have buried the hatchet. Eleventh: Also to succeeding Chemistry classes we leave the delightful odors which permeate the atmosphere in the laboratory. Among other substances noted for their delicate aroma we leave hydrogen sulphide, chlorine, and ammonia. There are others-but let the oncoming classes have the joy that attends their discovery. Twelfth: To the Juniors of today who upon our demise become Seniors, we bequeath the privilege of marching into the hall on Wednesday morning to the strains of some song suited to the occasion. We suggest "The Animal Fair" as be- ing very appropriate. Thtrteenth: To the Sophomores we leave the j ollity that was ours as Juniors. Since they have shown some signs of 72 TUSITALA athletic prowess we make them heirs of our athletic ability. Fourteenth: To the infantile Freshmen who were the bane of our existence Senior year on account of our running over them in every corridor, we leave an assortment of monkey thyroid glands in the hope that these will hasten their growth. Should there be a shortage of these glands, they will probably be able to procure more from the new Senior class. Fifteenth: If our estate were of cumbersome proportions we should like to bequeath unto the City Fathers a curtain for the auditorium to prevent the recurrence of the mishap that marred our histrionic venture, but we are in such straitened circumstances that we can only recommend the purchase of a curtain. The addition of this curtain will do away with much hard work on the part of the husky football men of a later day. Sixteenth: To Miss Genevieve Campbell we leave a velocipede, to be used on her many excursions through the building with notices. V Seventelerttlm To the caretakers of the schools' magnifi- cent lawn we leave a set of "Keep off the Grass" signs in eight different languages for the benefit of pupils unversed in English. Done this eleventh day of June, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred twenty-four, and of the independ- ence of the United States, the one hundred forty-eighth. In witness whereof we subscribe our names in thepres- ence of the testator and each other.

Here I was in the Boston station after an absence of fifteen years teaching in China, Waiting for 'the founder of the most fam- ous girls' college in the country, Eleanor Leslie. My thoughts went back to the time when she was Valedictorian and I thought how Well iitted she was for this position. She had not changed a bit. She was the same Eleanor, and after greeting me, exclaimed: "I have the most Wonder- ful news for you. I just met two of our classmates and they are going to Nashua with us. I am not going to tell you who they are. Here comes one of them now. Do you recognize her?" I saw a young Woman with a serious expression on her face. Why, judging from pictures, that was Marion Holland, the famous novelist of the day! Eleanor must be mistaken. She never was in our class. TUSITALA 75 Then the stranger spoke. "Don't you know me?" Why, Mildred Hallisey! You're the picture of Marion Holland, the novelist," I exclaimed. "I suppose she must look like me, as that is the name I write under," she said. . Then I remembered the stories Mildred wrote in N. H. S. and marvelled no longer. Who else is coming?" I asked. "Oh, she will be an hour late, as usual," said Mildred. Then I knew. Who else but Marion McGlynn could come smiling in an hour late? Marion was now a famous psychologist at Wellesley Col- lege, where she was giving a special course in the subject. The most popular question at Wellesley was, "When will she come ?" ' A Presently we boarded the train for Nashua. and began to talk of our classmates. "Do you know what Bernadette Lyons is doing ?" I asked. "Yes," Marion answered. "She is a famous movie ac- tress in the West and is more popular than Mary Pickford used to be in our time. And before I forget, Calthough I don't see how I couldj, Alice Ramsdell is the leading society woman in the South, and is married to a multi-millionaire. Don't you remember how fond of society Alice was? I always thought she would turn out to be something like that." "Now I will give my report," said Mildred. "You remem- ber Mary Shea, our class historian, don't you? She was so successful with the class history that she has compiled an out- line of universal history which is used in all the schools in the country. Nellie Molloy is a world-famed designer for cloth, and she is so valuable to her company that her life is insured for a million dollars. I call that success. Cecelia Winn is sec- retary to a millionaire and she looks after his business so well that it is reported she is soon to look after the man himself." By this time we had reached Nashua. I gazed in bewil- derment at the immense marble station, with a group of por- ters standing before the door ready to assist everyone. The station was lighted by about fifty large arc lights which made the inside of the station remarkably brilliant. "What bright lights !" I eclaimed, blinking. '76 TUSITALA "Oh, yes. We're used to them now. Anna Moran pro- duced those after five-years' experimenting with concentrated essence of fire-flies and they are used instead of Edison's now," Eleanor informed me. "Let's take the 'bus to the hotel and the guide will point out the sights to us," Mildred suggested. "On the left we have the world-known Nashua Hospital," shouted the guide. "Agnes Sughrue is the founder and matron, while Irene Somerville is a famous doctor. They have become so wealthy that they do all their work free now," Mildred whispered. "On the right we have the Gray Furnishing Establish- ment," bellowed the guide. "Is that Agnes Gray?" I asked. "Yes, she's away up in the world now. ' She owns about half of the city," Marion told me. "Let's get off and walk from here so that we can go in and see the people we know," interrupted Eleanor. As we proceeded up Main Street, my wonder grew at the changes. "What on earth is that building on top of the Tre- mont Theatre ?" I asked in amazement. "Why that's Duncan Jackson's roof-garden. The most popular resort in ive counties. He's a professor of dancing, too. Teresa Moran is the person who made his cabaret fam- ous, though. She went to Spain and returned with all sorts of Spanish dances. Don't you remember her as a Spanish dancer in the A. A.? Ruth Nelson is a composer of jazz music and has organized an orchestra of her own. Just at present she is touring the country," Eleanor told me. "Do you see that big building there?" Marion went on. "Well, that's a new theatre. Paul Tobias is managing it. He has revolutionized the stage, for his shows begin at 1 A. M. and last until 1 P. M. It's always throngedf' Just then we came to a florist's shop. "What beautiful flowers!" I exclaimed. "Why not go in and see if you recognize anyone?" Mil- dred suggested. As we pushed our way through a crowd of young men, a rosy-cheeked girl came to wait on us. "Why, Anna Collins! There is no need to ask about your TUSITALA 77 success. Do you have a crowd like this all the time? What are all those young men buying flowers for ?" I asked. "Well," she smiled, "I attribute my success to Katherine Broderick and Doris Martin. They have started a course for bashful young men to help them overcome their shyness. Evi- dently their pupils are very brilliant, because there is a gen- eral rush for flowers every day." After she had given us quantities of flowers, we proceeded up the street. "What a large ladies' store l" I exclaimed. "Yes, that's one of the largest in the country. Three of our old classmates run it, Mary Kelly, Margaret Noonan, and Lillian Canavan. They have the trade of all the cities in the state. They are some of the ones who have helped put Nashua where it is today." Marion supplied the information this time. Just ,then a newsboy shouted, "Nashua Gazette, ten centsln "Ten cents for a paper! That's unusual, isn't it?" I asked. "Oh, no. It's a wonderful paper. It's printed on expensive paper and always consists of more than fifty pages. And best of all, it's edited by two of our classmates, Norman J eannotte and Alice Douglas. That ought to explain the price," Eleanor said. "What is that wonderful building with the tower on that big hill?" I asked. "Do you mean to say you never heard of that ?" they all demanded. "Why, that's the biggest girls' school in the coun- try. That's the Charm School where the girls prepare for Leslie College. There are names entered there ten years ahead of time. No wonder, though, because John Smallis running it," Mildred told me. "John Small, of all people, running a girls' school!" I ex- claimed. "Yes, and wait until I give you a few details. Marjorie Campbell is the matron there, and except for her careful su- pervision, the school would not be the success it is. Leonard Killkelley is the Latin instructor, and they say that the number 78 TUSITALA of girls taking Latin has increased from five to live hundred," Marion added. A That didn't surprise me much, as I remembered how fond "Lennie" was of Latin and how well he did sight translation. "They also have a course in automobile driving of which 'Kennie' Whipple is the teacher. He teaches in a Rolls Royce. flt belongsvtoa 'Lennie', but he has three or four so he doesn't mind.J:f1. Tllverewas such a general rush to learn to drive that Mr. Smsallllibszcame suspicious and found that seventy-tive per cent ofiitliiefgirls in the course had had licenses for two years. 'Kennmilgalsioelposes for collar ads as a side line," Eleanor said. Theanaames of those boys brought "Bill" Cook to my mind. "What's 'Bill' Cook doing now?" I asked. "Oh, 'Bill' is also an instructor in the Charm School. He's a teacher of etiquette, and they say his course is very popularf' Marion said. "Well, there we are at the hotel," broke in Mildred. "What a marvelous hotel! Who owns this?" I demanded. "Marie Ammet is the proprietress. It's modelled after the Commodore in New York," I was informed. At this moment Marie herself stepped forward and wel- comed us, offering us every privilege while we remained at the hotel. She informed me that William Moulton was the man- ager of the hotel, and that he was planning an entertainment for us that evening. That evening as I mingled with the throng at the hotel I found, to my surprise, that the stars of the evening were two of my old classmates, Mildred Peterson and Teresa O'Meara. We were charmed with Tleresa's Russian dancing. As for Mildred, she was a world-famed soprano soloist and her lowest price for an evening performance was 2"p7,000, but when she found so many of her classmates present, she sang for us and refused to take any recompense. After the others had retired I sat before the fire, think- ing with pleasure of the success of my classmates, and resolved in my mind to give up my teaching in China and be a nearer neighbor to them the rest of my life. ' HELEN BIULLEN. TUSITALA 79 PART II One night as I sat dozing by my fireplace my mind wan- dered back to my old friends and pals of high school days, and I must have fallen asleep, for this is what happened to me. I inherited 2'p50,000. So I took the 350,000 and went on a tour around the world. The captain of the vessel on which I sailed was a stout, good-natured gentleman who by ,his jovial attitude at once drew me to him. Who do you' suppose-tit was? "Jim" Cummings. As we had always been closegfriends in high school, our reunion was a joyous one. Oneefhimg :led to another and after a time we discussed some efsoirformer classmates. "Jim" had kept tabs on quite a few.-ef -the old Room 6 gang and this is what he related to me. Herman Connell had become Headmaster of a first class preparatory school and was loved by all his pupils. Herman, you remember, was the preserver of all Mrs. Sweetser's first period Math class, without whom we all would have fiunked. He was as good to his students as he had been to his classmates and was the best leader the school had ever had. , Jim said that Ervin Winn, the "Long" of it in our class, had taken the office of Chief Electrician at the General Electric Company's plant in New York and was going ahead in fine style. Cummings, who had always been fond of musical come- dies, next told me as we neared London of Aa wonderful little show which was on the boards there. To see if he had lost his eyes for comedy, I consented to take in the show when we reached port. On the very evening of our arrival we went to the theater and purchased box seats. When the orchestra arrived, lo and behold, who should seat herself at the piano but Frances Downey! She surely did tickle those ivories. I learned later that it was at a very great expense that the theater had obtained Miss Downey's services. When the curtain rolled up, I received another shock. Tom Hickey and Margaret Bearse were the leading characters and after the show was over I agreed with Jim that those two were great. Tom, in his old role of "A tough guy from New Yoik," certainly made a hit. Margaret, who was Tom's partner, had studied in Paris and her voice was as sweet as she herself. With a heavy heart I watched the sailing of 80 TUSITALA Jim's vessel a few days later, but was soon made cheerful by the sight of "Duke" Keniston who had been made a real Duke by the king of England. He said if there was any place I'd like to go he would take me in his plane. No sooner had I ex- pressed my wish to go to Paris than off we flew. As the 1984 Olympic Games were being held, I stopped at the French capi- tal to see them. Learning that "Jackie" Kelly was the Ameri- can entry in the hundred yard dash, I made a little bet on him and of course I won. "Jackie" had a habit of winning and never got over it. The rest of my journey through Europe was uneventful except that I met "Larry" Hall in Venice where he was doing a thriving business running a motorized gondola route. He installed Ford engines in the gondolas and they were a great success. From Venice I embarked for Constantinople where, to my great delight, I met Professor Albert Marcus of Yale, who had come to the East to learn more of his specialty, psychology. "Al" and I had quite a talk and among the things he told me was that "Bernie" Filield had become a monogamist and had gone to Bagdad to protest on the high cost of harems. The Turks, however, asked him to leave, as his doctrine was un- favorable to them. Going over into Asia Minor in a vain search for the missing agitator, I wandered into the market place of Bokhara, where I was startled to hear a familiar voice say, "Wie geht's, Johann?" Of all people, Philip Weisman! I hardly knew him, his full beard and flowing robes disguised him so completely, but was pleased to hear of his prosperity as a dealer in rugs and oriental silks. He said that Camille Ledoux had married a British lord and was staying at Cal- cutta. Of course I looked her up and spent a happy week-end at their home. They were going to leave for London in a few weeks to live in the ancestral home of h-er Hhubbief' I left them with regret to sail for China. In China I encountered a tourist party from America, among them Priscilla Boyd, Doris Curtice, and Ruth Farwell. They were so engrossed in a quarrel with an old Chinese about an ivory Mah Jong set that I did not stay with them long. From China I went across the Pacific to California where TUSITALA 81 I encountered Germaine Allard and Dorothy Esson running a fruit farm. The fruit was a new variety called the Cheerie Plum from which a delicious kickless wine was manufactured. Their fortunes waxed high and where there is money there are men, so I'll let you guess the rest. - While in California I visited the famous Hollywood stu- dios of which I had so often heard and was very much im- pressed by the art of the Drama. When I was about to leave one of the studios, a pleasant voice hailed me and I turned about to face a familiar yet seemingly unknown countenance. When the lady introduced herself as Miss Shirley Brooks, I was still in the dark, although I recognized the name as that of ia popular actress. "Don't you remember Eleanor Dillon, your old classmate, John ?" As soon as she had spoken this I knew her and was pleas- antly surprised to see an old friend looking so charmingly beautiful. Eleanor introduced me to several famous actors and actresses and we arranged a little party for that evening. The cafe to which we adjourned was a wonderful example of high class art and Eleanor informed me that it was con- ducted by another old classmate, Alice Chamberlain. She had made wonderful record as a culinary expert before owning her own business, and her patronage was very elite. After my pleasant stay in Hollywood, I spent a few days in 'Frisco and while I was promenading up the main street, a sign caught my eye which read "Miss Dutton's Beauty Restor- ing Parlor, Miss Alice Dutton, Proprietor." I wondered if this could be the Alice of my high school days and out of curiosity dropped in to see. Sure enough, it was Alice, but how much more lovely she had grown! She informed me that she had studied for five years after leaving school and was now doing a thriving business grafting new faces on aged ladies and inserting monkey glands. As my train was leaving soon, I had to cut my visit short and hurry away to my next stop, which was New Orleans. Here I attended a concert at which Miss Reba Foster of Nashua, N. H., was the principal vocalist. Her rich contralto voice was marvelous and the applause was thunderous. I did 82 TUSITALA not get a chance to see Miss Foster, but it pleased me immensely to see her so successful. Atlantic City, Ah! what a place. After I had spent about two weeks here, one day I observed a beautiful woman coming near. Of course, beautiful women being my specialty, I gazed earnestly at her and recognized her as "Betty" Bryant. She did not remember me at first but soon recollected who I was. After a few weeks here she said she was going to Palm Beach to join her husband who, I learned, was a millionaire. From Atlantic City my journey took me to Washington. The Capitol City revealed another classmate to me. Who do you think it was? Dorothy Fields. Dorothy was the owner of the Black and Tan Taxi Company and while in Washington I had free taxi service. While wandering around the Congres- sional Library, I encountered Ella King. She was the head librarian, a position of great honor, and of course she showed me many things of interest, such as the Declaration of Inde- pendence and the Constitution. . The largest city in America, New York, sheltered many of my old schoolmates. The first candy store I entered was owned by Olivette Grandmaison. She knew all the tricks of the trade because she had been well trained at Dowd's. She had invented a chocolateless Chocolate and was doing a whole- sale business with it. fLorraine Dufour was running a hat shop, her specialty being vest pocket hats for ladies, hats which when not in use could easily be carried in hubbie's vest. This vogue was made possible by mannish haircuts. Pompadours were all the style in New York. Mildred Rynn was running a barber shop for "Ladies and Gents" and in spite of my being an old classmate she "gypped" me Kas Ward Whitney would sayl 31.00 for a haircut. Well, it was worth it, just to see her. She was as talkative as six male barbers, and from her I heard that Mary Manning was teaching a dancing and music school. The popular dance was a modified form of the old, old tango which died out when I was high stepper. Jean MacDuffie was the owner of the Catskill Seminary which was the school for wealthy New York girls. She was just as cheerful and courteous as ever. TUSITALA 83 As I prepared to leave New York, I saw a bridal train go rattling down the street followed by a crowd of happy friends of the couple, and I caught a glimpse of the bride through the window. To my surprise it was Mavis Witham. The man was dark and curly headed. The old home town surely looked good when I got back. I knew everyone and everyone knew me. Oh boy! it was a "grand and glorious feeling." Eleanor Anderson came speed- ing along in her new Radio Car and invited me to ride. We flew along noiselessly in this new invention, somewhat like the old electric automobile. Of course, you know Eleanor had married into a very wealthy family and this car was one of four which she owned. Her husband had purchased the old Greeley Park and fixed up the grounds for a private reserve. Ouch! Murder! Stop! My wife, after calling me for a half hour, had grown disgusted and a pitcher of ice-water had descended upon me. Wasn't that a rude interruption for such a pleasant dream? JOHN WORTHEN. - III A great many thoughts and recollections of my high school days passed through my mind as I sped swiftly along in my private airplane. After ten years of absence I was re- turning for a brief visit to Nashua. Indeed my mind was so occupied that I nearly collided with one of the many planes that passed me. The now vast metropolis was at last in sight! How impa- tient was I to alight! Having done so, I eagerly pushed my way through the mobs of people that thronged the streets. I was to meet my old chum, Mary Lazott, and she was to show me about this marvelously changed city which so bewildered me. I finally saw her making her way toward me through the crowd. After eifusive greetings she led me to her tiny run- about and as we entered she said, "First of all, I want you to see Harold Mul's place. He is an inventor and the richest man in Nashua. His place is simply superb! He invents electrical contrivances which do absolutely all the work around the place. There-on your right I" 84 TUSITALA I beheld a huge marble building, with lofty pillars and massive beams. As I glanced, she whispered, "There he is now." Sure enough! The door opened mechanically and a huge slide on which he was standing lowered itself very slowly to the curb where his limousine waited. He stepped into the car and the door closed after him. Just then he saw Mary and tipped his hat by an electrical contrivance. This was too much! I laughed outright. How like the old Harold! She then took me to her own. immense department store, which was a marvel of perfection. With a sigh of relief I sank into one of her luxurious office chairs near a window. "What a crowd I" I exclaimed. "Yes," she said, "And it's not Saturday either. I brought you here so that we could hear ourselves talk. Look out the window and then you can ask questions. I'm at your service for the day." Exactly opposite I saw a five-story building with a huge sign at the top "Rimbach and Milan." It was a modiste shop. I gasped and looked at Mary. "Yes," she smiled, "It's Ruth and Dick. He furnishes the financial end of the business and she the brains." To the left of this was a huge hotel, one of the kind with "2,000 rooms and modern conveniences." It was called "The Homelike Palace." I glanced expectantly at Mary. "It's run by Mary Singleton and John Worthenf' she said. "They are their own entertainers. They're really marvelous dancers. Of course, I needn't mention the fact that they are now Mr. and Mrs. Worthen. Mildred Hopkins is the hotel detective and she certainly is efficient. They have an immense swimming pool and give private swimming lessons. Florence Baybutt is in charge of it, a second Annette Kellerman. She surely is wonderfulf' A little farther up the street I saw a dainty purple and gold beauty shop. At the top was written "The Dorothy- Martel Shoppe." Immediately I knew that of course it was Camille Martel and Dorothy'Haskins. Many of the Nashua debutantes owe their loveliness to these expert beautifiers. I leaned back and spoke. "My eyes fairly ache, Mary. Do let me rest them while you tell me about everybody. Begin with school. Anyone I know over there ?" TUSITALA 35 "Oh, Yes indeed!" she replied. "In the first place, 'Tilly' has taken the place of our beloved. 'Nezzie' who is now Presi- dent of Dartmouth." "You don't mean Dave Tillotson ?" "I do! The teachers and pupils are just as crazy about him as we were about 'Nezzief Lillian Vassar is head book- keeping teacher and she is assisted by Isabel McClure and Isabel Hovanesian. Robert Dearborn is professor of golf,- there is a private golf course attached to the school grounds, you know. His course is certainly crowded. Lillian Lewis and Phyllis Clement have a dancing class and I must admit their course is even more popular. I guess that's all of the faculty you would be interested in. They're giving a musical revue over there just now and you can't imagine who's coach- ing it. Yes, Dave Adams! I" "Not really !" I exclaimed. "Yes, he's been in the business for about eight years and he's really good. You remember the year we graduated when we gave 'Marcheta ?' " "Indeed, I do!" - "Well, you see, Miss Ingle helped him to decide his career and now he has a company of his own." I lay back in my chair,-these surprises were too much for me. "Well," I said after a moment, "Go on." "Do you remember 'Mac?' " I nodded assent. "You never could imagine what he's doing! I-Ie's a dentist! One of the kind that extracts teeth without pain,-you see, he leaves the pain in when he takes out the tooth. I know, for I've been to him. Outside of that, he's all right! I "Al Lintott runs the biggest garage in Nashua. It looks like a palace and the cars she sells-words fail me! I bought my three there, her place, the 'Auto Kingdomf is crowded all the time. ' " 'Bernie' Moran owns and operates the best newspaper plant in New England. He is clever. As .a side line he hap- pens to be Mayor of the city, too. Some busy man, I tell you! "Marjorie Kimball and Irving Mumford are Lamong the leading stars in filmdom, though of course they use stage names. Marjory's is Fifi LaPlante and Irving's is Randolph Valentine. Surely you've heard of them ?" 86 TUSITALA "I should say I had, but I never imagined they were old classmates of mine. You see, I seldom attend the movies these days. I don't care for the talking films." , "I rather like them," replied Mary, "Did you know it was Walter J aquith who invented them?" By this time used to astounding facts which she kept telling me, I merely shook my head. "I forgot to tell you," she went on, "that Leo Nash is coach over at N. H. S. In all athletics he turns out remarkable teams. "Ray Ross is the most prominent physician in the coun- try. Everyone knows Dr. Ross. His remedies are sure cure. "Vera White is Chief of Police. You should see her in uniform, also in action. She is noted everywhere for her cleverness in detecting crimes and catching criminals. There she goes now in her red speed wagon,-look quick!" I did so and there was Vera, but how changed! I would have thought her a man, she was of such massive build. Some- one was with her who looked strangely familiar. "Who is it?" I asked Mary. "Why, that's Pearl Goodman," she answered, "the noted criminal lawyer. They must be on someone's trail. They're often together." It was getting darker and darker but I had been so in- terested listening that I hadn't noticed it. When I did, I sprang up. "Mercy, it's late! I must be off, for I have a long way to go and it's no fun driving a plane in pitch darkness," I said. As I did so I noticed in huge headlines in a paper on Mary's desk, "Buckley Circus." She saw me glance at it and spoke, "Yes, that's Ogden. His circus is the most popular in the world. Agnes Barry is a tight rope walker, one of his chief performers. She's remark- able,-he couldn't do without her. John Sullivan is his busi- ness manager and is also one of his cleverest acrobats. I should have said before that Ruth Palmer really runs the busi- ness for, you see, she happens to be Mrs. Buckley! Wait, there's something else in this paper I think you'd be interested in." She turned over a few pages and then showed me the following: TUSITALA - 87 Carr's Studio 136 Main Street The Latest in Photography Children's Pictures a Specialty I Hours 9 to 12, 1 to 5 Everyone Welcome She smiled as I looked up and said, "Of course, you re- member Eva '?" I certainly did remember Eva, who was always the jol- liest of the jolly in high school days. About fifteen minutes later I was again speeding along in my little plane back to "Home Sweet Home." They say that "Anticipation is greater than realization," but in this case I firmly disagree, for realization was far greater than anticipa- tion. I certainly was glad that so many of my classmates of N. H. S. had found the road to success! ' MARGARET BEARSE. IV I think it was Plato, or perhaps Bill Shakespeare, that was wont to remark: "IA rolling stone gathers no moss." As the mossback is a type that never has appealed to me, I spent the years following graduation "Seeing America First." I followed this policy about twelve years, gathering both shekels and experience. By this time the glamor of a roving life had worn away and while spending a week with Steve Steger, I saw the folly of it all. Steve lives in Florida. He is one of the biggest fruit growers in the South and perhaps the richest man in the state. When I was there, Steve had just been elected to the United States Senate. By the way, he is happily married and plays golf whenever his wife will let him. Steve seemed so very happy that I decided to try the quiet life and settle down in New York. Many of my friends lived there and it seemed certain that there I would find some good business opportunity. When I reached New York, the Braves and Giants were in the midst of an exciting five-game series. After a day's rest, I spent an afternoon at the Polo Grounds. It was with great pleasure that I Watched the Braves trim the Giants, thanks to the timely work of Ed Downey and Ted Drumm. They were the whole team and after seeing them 38 TUSITALA work, I did not wonder that the Braves had won the world's series three times in a row. That evening I called on Horace Brown. He was the same old "Brownie," even though he lived on the Avenue and was serving his second term as the Governor of the Empire State. We talked far into the night and perhaps we would have been talking yet if the Governor had not been leaving for Albany in the morning. During my stay in New York I looked up John Dimtsios. John lives in Newark and has a brokerage office in Wall Street. With the help of his tips, my exchequer was soon filled with the root of all evil and I was seriously thinking of going into business, until I met Francis Carroll. He and Burt Bruce are powers in the business world out on the coast and Francis was in New York on a business trip. He and Burt are deep in foreign trade and needed more capi- tal to swing some big deals. I realized that here was a chance to invest some of my lucre, so we started for the coast together. It seemed mighty good to get together and talk over old times, yet it was hard to imagine hovv the old class of "24" had scattered. Francis Kilbride had become a great pianist, while Gertrude Cohen had become the leading prima donna in Chicago Opera. Doris and Evelyn Fuller have been very suc- cessfully running a select girls' finishing school, and I heard that "Herbie" Brown is Professor of Mathematics at M. I. T. The miles slipped quickly by, though to keep the journey from becoming tiresome we stopped over night at Cleveland. There at the Palace, we saw a fine musical comedy. Ward Whitney was starring in "Don't buy your baby a rattle-it's cheaper to let him play with your Ford." "Whit" was even better than usual and was supported by a bevy of beautiful chorus girls. Of course Viola Warburton was one of the charmers, while I thought I recognized Lillian Nash as one of the others. We left the theatre, still chuckling at Ward's side- splitting jokes. While en-route to Chicago, we enjoyed the company of George Brien, that is, as far as Detroit, for George is a banker in the automobile city. It must be a soft life, for George is plumper than ever. In Chicago we were too tired to attend the theater but in x TUSITALA 89 the lobby of our hotel, whom should we meet but Commodore J oe McCarthy of the Great Lakes Naval Training Station! In the fall he is coach of the Annapolis football team and he told us that his team will be better than ever this fall. We were surprised mightily to find that Bob Howe is on Joe's team. He has been playing ever since he left high school. Thirteen years in all, six at prep school, three at college, and this was his fourth year at Annapolis. That's a long time for anybody to last in the pigskin game. The next day we spent seeing the sights in the Windy City. In the evening we watched with eager eyes the famous film version of "Hot Stuff," starring Paul Bryant, the idol of the silver screen. Paul had all the ladies sighing for him be- fore the picture was half through and when he most nobly risked his life to rescue the beautiful heroine from the clutches of thirty bloodthirsty savages, at least six women held their breath until they fainted and had to be carried out. But we knew the gallant Paul of old and survived. We were really surprised when the vaudeville was announced. The very first act was the famous classical dancer, Monsieur Romeo Dion. Romeo was just as good as ever and the fickle women even for- got Paul while admiring the graceful passes of friend Romeo. The following day we caught our train just as it pulled out of the station and were both soon buried in our news- papers. After reading an interesting editorial upon the high cost of the Swiss Navy, I found to my surprise that the learned editor of the Midland Echo was no other than Charlie Foley. But Charlie's editorial was not the only interesting thing in the paper. In big headlines I noted that Ernest Chalifoux and Roy Parker had just completed the first non-stop airplane flight around the world. Accounts of this great feat occupied the whole front page. On the second page I read the piteous appeal made by two famous Red Cross nurses, Della Esty and Mildred Parker, for money to carry on relief work in the wilds of Siberia. Next I read that Chief Justice "Bill" Sweeney of the United States Supreme Court had awarded Martin Markarien a verdict against the American Tin Can Company. Marlin represented I-Ienry Ford and charged patent infringements-- 90 TUSITALA Henry maintained that he had the sole right to manufacture tin cans both in the country and abroad. Francis, who had been reading the American Magazine, now called my attention to an interview with Henry "Tex" Ricard, who had become fabulously rich promoting-not prize- fights-but oil stocks. Henry's picture showed him to be a strong man of the open, yet he looked as if he could still shake a mean chocolate milk. Facing Henry's picture was a new short story by that famous authoress, Helen Mullen. It was a corker-"Sweet are the Uses of Advertisement"-you've probably read it. I was just meeting the heroine-a mere slip of a girl, with eyes like-well, you know the kind, when I was suddenly in- terrupted by the entrance of two young men who seated them- selves just ahead. Francis recognized them immediately. They were Ray Hackett and Orville Kenny. After more joy- ous greetings, we found that they were in partnership and were making money hand over fist in the advertising business. They told us to look up Frank Firth in Denver. They thought he was an officer in the Militia. Ray and Orville left us at Omaha, and once more we were left alone. At Denver we tried to find Firth in the telephone direc- tory and found Farrell instead. Of course it was possible that it might not be Dick, but we looked him up, anyway. It was Dick, all right. He runs a big haberdashery store on the cor- ner of Main and West 61st Street-if you ever look him up you can tell his store by the sign over the door which reads-"It costs no more to buy a Farrell." While chatting with Dick we found that it is Constantine Efthimios who is the army man and that Firth quite to the contrary, has become a wild and woolly cowboy wrestler, who has so many notches in the grips of his six-guns that they greatly resemble the surface of the roads in Hudson. As the train stopped only two hours, we had no time to TUSITALA 91 look up the Colonel "Connie," or the two-gun man, Firth, and after making Dick promise to remember us to our old friends, we started on the last lap of our journey. At the Frisco station we found Burt waiting with his Rolls Royce. He was glad to see Francis back and more than sur- prised to see me. After a few days I joined the firm of Carroll, Bruce 8a Company, and if you are interested in our further adventures-"ask Dad, I-Ie knowsf' HERMAN CONNELL. 1 I . x 51' x 1 1 .
