She certainly did love his- tory! Her chief liolllry is nature, and Uh, how crops would thrive with Helen as a farmer- ettel She was always quiet and demnre, lunt displayed her vocal talent luy singing in the Glee Club Ill, and "l'inal'ore" lV. HELEN Loinsr: BACIQQALUPO "Never ready, alivays lalvj But size .v1mlv.v, .vo you walt!" "l3atchy" always showed up at the very last minute. She seemed to take delight in being almost late-hut not quite. Helen was popu- lar, and we wonder if those dark eyes didn't have something, to do with it. NYC were proud of her as the French maid in "Dulcy," al- though we were afraid she would he late for her cues. She participated in "Ma1'cheta" I, "Miss Binh VVhite" III, Commercial Play Ill, "lJnley" lVg served on the Lunch Counter IVQ was the Tafflvr Staff Secretary lVg and made the Upper Fourth IV. 1 TUSITALA jo11N CIIARLICS B.-xizlev "fl geliiux in llle 111tzki11g." "I'at" was the most original fellow in the class. His comical stories showed some ol' the genius within, and he proved he was a horn reporter Ivy his work on the Tizftler staff as Athletic liditor IY. Beside keeping the trallic straight in the corridors III and IV, he was an usher at the teachers' play, 1927. His vocal powers were proved as Cheer Leader and in the Cilee Clnlt II, III, and IV. Ile crowned his literary success in N. II. S. Ivy utilizing his natural alwility as a p:n'agrapIier in the VIIIIXIIIIIII, and as one of our l'rophets.

Her unoltstrnsive Ways soon won her tnany a friend in the school. As a Toy Soldier in HXl1tl'Cl'1CIll.II, she was one of the prettiest, and in the lflirtation Group of "Miss Iloli NYhite," she was a most Ilirtatious young lady.

He was full of fun and glee, and we always felt at ease when he was around. Ile liked football and Itaselmall. As Mr, C. Roger Iforltes in "IJulcy", he showed great dramatic ability,-he certainly had action. "SiI" was at his Ivest that night. Ilis activities were: Tnillvr Reporter I, II, III, IY, Com- mercial plays II, III, Senior I'lay, "IJt1Icy," IV, Tratlic Otlicer II, III, "Princess Bonnie" III. TUSITALA BllxiuaA1ei1:'1' Mmnox llieomciuek "Cft'11llt', ftlifflfltf, f1'11t'." This is perfectly true of "Veg," She was one of the reserved girls of '27, a characteris- tic too seldom found in one ol the modern generation. When "Veg" was pleased with anything, her llrown eyes sparkled in a de- lightful manner, and if one listened Carefully, he might hear a low chuckle, although "Peg" never spoke unless she had lo. She surely made an attractive candy girl at "lJuley" IV, We wish you much success, "Veg," l'1':1mY Blzowx "For cz In'fier friezld look no fz1r!l1t'r."' Quiet, smiling, and cheerful, Perry was :1 good student, and he certainly could devour knowledge, as was shown liy his high stand- ing in the Upper lfourth. He had the out- standing characteristics ol a model linsiness man-amllition and ellieiency-and was de- servedly one of the most popular fellows ol '27. The Tufflvr owes much to l'erry's skill and work as Business Manager IV. As a Track man ll, lll, IX' he showed persever- ance and exceptional aliility. He was a mem- ller of the Trattie Squad lll, and fourth divi- sion l'resident in United States llistory lV. Xtith such admiralvle traits We know he will make his way in life. Nom limenii.-tm "lI'ifl1 liglzf lzeur! may .vlzv rin' ll'ifl1 guy flmry, rln't'1'f1zl eye.v."' Didn't Nora have a lvig heart, and wasn't she always cheerful? She was quick-wittetl and always ready with an answer. She hopes to make her career as a nurse, and there's not the least doulmt in our minds that she will bring her patients salely out from under ether. The tilee Clulv had a valuable memller in Nora. She was also in "Klareheta" l.

He was always on hand to help his friends in every way he possihly could. History often worried our "Sammy," hut he fought hard and conquered it, XYe shall never forget the happy days we spent with Sammy in Assembly. NK'e shall lose a great pal when we part with him.

The fact that she played in the orchestra three years, ll, lll, IV, shows that she is au accomplished violinist, and she was one of the inner group Chosen to play for "l'inafore," IV. She graced the Candy Committee of "Dulcy" IV, and was in one of the choruses of "Miss lloh VVhite" Ill. Banlsmzw Ermai. BIFSWICLI.

She was a reporter on the Tulllvz' Staff l, and took part in "l'he Glorious Girl." "Peaches" liked sports of all kinds, hut the sport she loved hest was hasehall. You could always depend on seeing her at the games. She also liked dramatics, and we wouldn't he surprised some day to find her a dramatic coach. XYe wish her loads of luck. TUSITALA IXIILDRED CADY "Size was a flzanlom of delight ll'lzcn first .vile gleauzvd upon my sight." Mildred is as pleasing to know as she is to look at, which means a lot. She was a happy- go-lucky girl who lmy her smiles won many friends. She was liked lay all of her class- mates liecause she was a good mixer and was always willing to help if she possilily could. Keep smiling, Mildred, for smiles will go a long, long way. LUcn.I.12 FRANcl4:s CARROLL "Around her eyes her trvsses fell,- IVIIVLCIL were blocker none would fell." Lucille, Abetter known to her classmates as "Toots," was one of 'Z7's jolly and popular girls. She was always joking and full of fun. Music and dancing were her favorite pas- times. ln fact, she showed her alxilily as a dancer in "Princess Bonnie" and "'lXliss Boll White," as well as at all the school dances. She was a memlmer of the music class her senior year, singing in the concert and "Pin- aforef' Keep up your happy ways, and friends will lie yours for the asking. IONE CHIDZUKO CATH "A rozuztrmizzru in tulzirlz did meet Sieect records, prozmscs as saucer." Although lone was with us only her Senior year, coming from Goddard Seminary, we were glad to welcome her, and we only hope she has enjoyed lweing with us as much as we have enjoyed having her. Her stories con- cerning japan were very interesting, and many of us almost envy her for her experience in that fascinating country. lone was very fond of music, singing in the concert and "Pina- foref' VVe understand that she is to be OIIC of our future school teachers.

"Kay" came down from the Thornton Road every school day to attend N. H. S. She must have liked us, to come all that way to see us, and we certainly liked her. NX'hat is this we hear about someone in a Chandler car coming from Boston to call, "Kay"? She sang in the Glee Clulr lll, took part in the "Adventures of Mrs. Rip Van X'Yinkle" Ill, and, last hut not least, made Upper lfourth, 1V TOM CHIEETHAM "Courage dovxfft mu in rises." "Tommie", our young English lad, was known throughout the class for his mathema- tical prowess, lmeing the shark of his Review Math class. He was also one of the most courteous of our number. His holllmy must he driving his "Chevie," for in it he tries, at odd times, to outspeed the wind. His grit was tested during his crucial illness Senior year, and his alvility was shown in the promptness with which he caught up in his studies to graduate with his class, well to the front in the Upper Fourth. Tom is well liked and will undoubtedly succeed. HELEN CLARA C HRISTIAN "IIN Izmir! ix good lzumored, 'fix honest and .roundg Nu envy or malice is fliers fo be found." Helen is a sure cure for the lmlues, and shows more direct appreciation of her friends than anyone we know. Talkative? At first thought one would say "No", hut to those who know her well she is full of amusing chatter.

James was quiet and unassuming, but will- ing to help a friend, and we missed him while he was away, preparing for Annapolis. His abilities were scattered over a multitude of fields, and he could do anything from playing an harmonica to publishing the Telegraph, Didn't you notice the dec1'ease in efficiency of the Nashua daily when James resigned his position there? He helped along the Glee Club his first three years, and the Senior Play Ticket Committee in his last year. KA1'HERINE C. CLIFFORD "She gave her thoughts 110 tongue." Katherine was one of the girls of whom we saw very little. She never missed a day of school if she could help it, but she was so quiet that many people did not notice her. There are some of us, however, who know her to be full of fun and life. She was one of the best-natured girls in the class, and no matter what happened, she always came up with a smile. "Kay" had one stroke of bad luck, however,-she was taken to the hospital the day before our junior Prom, and we cer- tainly missed seeing her there. NELLIE TXTAE CON NOR "Fair trr.v.re.v HIfl1Z,5 imperial rare czzsnarcy And beauty draws ux rvzth a .rmglc hair." To be sure, we all remember Nellie's won- derful wavy hair a11d blue eyes. She had a very sunny disposition which made her many friends in N. H. S.-and was she popular? There is only one answer. As Vice-President of the class Ill, she made a very gracious leader at our Prom. She was also Tattlcr Ke- porter I, in the Chorus of "Princess Bonnie" ll, a valuable member of the Debating Club HI, and one of those Hflirtatious young ladies" in the "Bob White" chorus, Ill. As a mem- ber of the Property Committee she helped make the attractive setting for our Senior Play. To crown her success, she was one of the Associate Editors of Tusitala, and stood well up in the Upper Fourth. TUSITALA VVALTER E. Coiuiv "Ile is teixe who talks but liiilef' Wlalter most assuredly lived up to the quo- tation. He was always ready, however, to lend a helping hand when lessons were not completed, especially if they had to do with Math. He must have had a great deal of grit to come way from Brookline every morning, lwut the fact that he had a Ford prohalmly ac- counts for his accomplishing this feat. None of us are surprised to know that he stood high in the class ballot for gaining the title of the "Most Bashfulf' . GICRTRUDIC Loulsla Cousms "The eyes like wells, wlwrc sun lies, too, So clear and frustful blue." Gertrude with her quiet, smiling eyes was one of our best singers, and she joined in the May Festival III. Rarely did we see Ger- trude in a hurry, as she had a very leisurely manner in talking and in acting, hut we recog- nized her true worth by what she accom- plished while she was with us.

This was because she never neglected any lesson. She was one of our fair students from Hudson, which may have helped. Remember when she worked in Hudson's stock exchange,4that is, liw stock? She helped run the only circus- animal exchange in the world, She promises to become a poet of merit some day, if only she keeps up the good work. lt goes with- out saying that she stood very high in the Upper Fourth. CLARAISEI, VVn.MA Dixvis " .... ....0f k1illdILU.V.Y 1 speak, Of u eliarm, of cz .mule On ii fare that ix plea.va1'1t to meet." Clarabel seemed such a quiet girl that hard- ly any of us dared to pry into her ahfairs, but we were glad she stayed with us for four years and got along so well. The most dis- tinctive things about Clarabel were her firm chin and reserved manner. She had the hon- or of being "the perfect girll' of Room 5, and wasn't she the only one in history class to know that the 49" parallel divided Canada and the United States? hYAl.'I'l'LR Giaoluzrl Davis "fl filvusillg f7t'l'S0JIl1lifj' .vmfed in the heart of i'ourlexy." Those rubber stoppers which sailed beau- tifully through the chemistry lab., obtaining their driving force from Walter's unfailing hand, were the cause of nearly all the smiles and laughter up there, VN'hat VValter could do if he wanted to, amazed us. Klost sur- prising, however, was his ability to figure out those terrible problems without the aid of pencil and paper. Another thing,-he always seemed to be the firxf one to get in class. lsn't it so, boys? f 'E TUSITALA CnA1n.Es BRODERICK DESMARAIS "Men are of Iwo kindx, and he ls of the kind I'd like to be." Charlie, our most prominent athlete, was among the best-liked fellows in N. H. S, His popularity was due both to his athletic ability, and his modest, unassuming, good-natured disposition. Remember how we used to cheer when he would either drop in a basket from midfloor in basketball, or strike out an oppos- ing player in baseball? He made center on the All-State Basket-Ball Teams both his Junior and Senior years. His activities give good evidence of his exceptional athletic ability: Baseball I, II, III, IVQ Basket-Ball I, II, III, IV, Captain III, Football II, Track IV. IYIARY FRANCES DEVEREUX "A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge." Mary was a very quiet girl until one came to know her intimately. Then one dis- covered a delicious sense of humor and an infectious laugh. She was an apt student and critic of literature, and one of the few who took Latin four years and still made the Upper Fourth. We remember her as one of the Farmerette chorus which made such a hit in "Miss Bob White" III. She also was a member of the candy committee of "Dulcy" IV. We wish you much success, Mary, in years to come. H. Roaster D1oN "All work and no play llfould have made 'Bob' a dull boy." "Sonny's" Freshman year marked the be- ginning of his doing things for Nashua High, for his playing on the baseball team was phenomenal. He played baseball all four years, indeed, acting as Captain IV. He tried basket-ball his fourth year and very easily made a place among the best players of the squad. Athletics is not his only hobby,-wit- ness his work for the Glec Club II, III, the A. A. Play III, and finally as usher at the Senior Play. His success in the world is as- sured, as he is one of the most sociable of fellows. TUSITALA CHi:s'i'1c1z NX'.fxlu:i:N IJUIIIQNS "Nix riulizizix .vfwiilc luizilm' llltlll my ffm."

To say that "Speed" was a clever member in the class is putting it rather mildly, he was such a hard and conscientious worker. No one was surprised to have him rank next to the top in the Upper Fourth. His shuFHy walk and slouchy manner was a familiar sight in the Senior corridor. ln spite of the interest that he maintained in his studies, he still found time to engage in some of the social activities of the school.

On September 6, 1923, orders were issued for the general mobili- zation of the personnel of the fieet of 1927, to take place at the local navy yard on Spring Street. The scene of embarkation was one of frenzied excitement, as the seamen sought the several squadrons to which they had been assigned, lest the fleet sail away leaving them behind. This cruise on which we had embarked was to be a four year train- ing cruise. During these years we were to receive the necessary train- ing to prepare us for the longer and more difficult voyage through life. Admiral Nesmith and his staff, the Faculty, were in command of these raw, untrained, landlubbers, and were both amused and sympathetic. In a short time everyone was ready and the fleet set out "full speed ahead," on the first leg of a most enjoyable cruise. Although every- thing went well at first, complications soon set in, due to the lack of experience of the sailors, and the violent outbreak of mal de mer as the fleet encountered stormy weather. A few pseudo-captains lost courage, and put their ships back to port. However, Admiral Nesmith and his staff successfully guided the craft through the rough going, and soon we were lying off the island of Summer Vacation., Our stay here was very pleasant, but the sea beckoned, and weigh- ing anchor, in September we set out again to continue our cruise. The fieet was noticeably smaller, as some of the ships had proved unsea- worthy, or the sailors been declared unfit for service. , Those who had proved themselves worthy were promoted to the rank of first class seamen, and to denote their rank were provided with gold rings bearing the fieet insignia and numerals. Except for this indication of our progress, the second year of the cruise was long, tedi- ous, and uneventful, and everyone welcomed a brief period of rest will-I +- TUSITALA 65 while the fleet took on supplies for the next year. Among our rations this year were Latin, Algebra, and French, which we found very diffi- cult to digest. In the fall of 1925, the fleet was reorganized and made ready for the third year of our cruise. Such progress had been shown under Admiral Nesmith's training that we were allowed to choose our own student-commanders. Cyrus Greeley was promoted to the rank of Class Admiral, Nellie Mae Connor, to the rank of Rear-Admiral, Fannie Lucien kept the tleet's log, and John Tucker was elected to the position of Quarter-master. His duties included sounding the fog horn when the fleet was thought to be in danger in thick weather. In honor of this new sovereignty, the Admiral decreed that the Junior Dance should be held aboard his flagship. It was a very suc- cessful party, and everyone returned to his own ship, satisfied that the fleet was in the hands of very capable officers. About a month before the fleet went into drydock to be recondi- tioned for the following year-during which the voyage was to be diffi- cult-we also held our "Prom" on the flagship. Admiral Nesmith and his staff were in the reviewer's stand, while the seamen, led by our commanders, Cyrus Greeley and Nellie Mae Connor, formed the nume- - . . . k rals of the fleet. Aftei this, dancing was enjoyed on the afterdec . Everyone was dressed in his finest uniform for this gala occasion. In September, 1926, the fleet set out on the last leg of our cruise, under the command of john Tucker, Class Admiral, Marjorie Champ- ney, Rear-Admiral, Helen Wilson, keeper of the Heet's log, and Chester Dobens, Quarter-Master. After sailing awhile, we sighted a derelict which upon investigation proved to be the "Dulcy." On board this ship we found many treasure chests laden with gold, which together with the Senior Dance, helped finance our cruise. On April Sth, Admiral Nesmith ordered the fleet drawn up for review. Each captain steamed his ship to its appointed position accord- ing to the honors he had received during the four years. The position of the Fourth of the fleet with the highest honors was announced, but a smoke screen was laid to conceal the remainder. I th l tter art of April, fourteen seamen stood in the crow's nest n e a p and declaimed to the fleet in general for the Noyes Medal. Their ef- ' L th se who forts were rewarded with loud blasts of the foghorns. ater, o were interested showed their ability to navigate a sea of words, and wrote for the Dodge Medal. Now we'are in sight of the end of our pleasant voyage. Qn the morning of june 24th we shall receive our commissions, and in the evening we shall hold our graduation reception. Weiare now prepared to guide our ships through the storms and uncertainties of life, and each of us is in the mood to say: "I am the master of mv fate, I am the captain of my soul." FRED A.

Meanwhile coy young Mrs. Forbes and a harmless lunatic posing as Schuyler Van Dyck, "owner of the Van Dyck millions," become interested in each other, until the latter is taken in charge by his cousin, Blair Patterson. From the moment the play opened until the grand finale our in- terest never wavered. Soon came the entrance of Dulcy, played so skillfully by Marjorie. Such a lovely vision she was, that the enthu- siastic audience was aroused to applause. How we pitied Dulcy's harassed husband, "the willing, but helpless host!" How well he un- derstood Dulcy,-almost too well,-and how hard she tried to help him! Wade Smith, in this role, conveyed perfectly to the audience the diffi- culties which presented themselves to him. "lf 1 should fail, darling Qin the jewelry dealj I should have to give up all this!" he sighed, his eyes wandering over the luxurious room. Dulcy, a pitiful little figure swallowed up in a great chair, cried sorrowfully. "Me, Gordie, me too? 1'm just a false note, Gordief' She was the usually gay butterfly, light- hearted, light-headed, for the moment blindly feeling her way to a realization of affairs, but just as suddenly the picture changes, and in- stead she is making foolish, laughable proposals, such as a "budget of things not to do, like the one we had for the household." The role of Mr. Forbes, the crabbed business man, used to having his own way, was taken by Sylvio Beston. And Sylvio surely did act! His stamping and his striding were picturesque, his language force- ful, not to say strong! Willie, Dulcy's brother, played by john Tucker, was in reality "Johnny" all over again: Such ever ready wit and sar- casm! Such unfailing good humor! Yet Willie was a true son of Adam, as we saw when Dulcy revealed Angela's secret-her elopement with Leach-"So you are going to elope with Leach P" Willie, the man, asked solemnly. Willie was more than an 'told friend" then. He was an almost defeated lover-but not quite. He got his girl in the end! ! Frances Flather was Angela, the romantic, very feminine girl, who lived on moonlight thrills and dreams. Her light beauty contrasted effectively with the prevailing brunette types in the cast. Her acting was admirable, and the outcome of Angela's part in the play highly gratifying to the audience. The part of Vincent Leach was taken bv Robert Slavin, who deserves much praise for his interpretation of the exotic and temperamental genius, the too romantic "scenarist." His imagination just about carried him away-with Angela, too-but hap- pily for her he had to depart alone-in the middle of the road, and "in the middle of the night." Janice, as Mrs. Forbes, showed remarkable ability. We shall never forget her numerous "Oh, Charlies" in the various affected tones which the circumstances demanded. The maid who llitted- across the stage now and then, and enhanced the ease of the .after-dinner scene particularly was Helen Bacigalupo. We can well believe that brunette beauty" was one of the qualifications for that part. es TUsrrALA p p p p p Leonard Paquette, as Sterrett, deserves especial credit, for he also led the orchestra between acts. Sterrett, the perpetually unwanted, the nfth wheel, unduly fond of himself, was a difficult part to play, and Leonard excelled. Francis Downey played the role of Schuyler Van Dyck, the mildly demented. His musical ability was called into action by the various melodies with which he accompanied the dramatic reci- tation of the "scenarist." Chester Dobens, much at home in the role of Blair Patterson, Van Dyck's harassed cousin and care-taker, made amusingly clear to the audience the latter's peculiar mental condition. As Henry, the butler, Fred Church's facial expression tor lack of itj could not have been bettered. His Thespian skill was particularlv apparent in the robbery scene. His slinking, sly manner and the "wicked look" in his eyes distinctly thickened the plot! The setting for the three acts was one of the most successful ever seen in the auditorium. The tapestry hanging as a background and the beautiful lighting effect at the beginning of the second act carried the audience into a veritable fairy-land. We must congratulate Philip Morrison, Stage-Manager, and Watson Rand, Electrician, for their part in the success of the evening. Certain high moments in the stage grouping linger in our minds. The slumberous listeners assembled "after three hundred years" had a most amusing effect on the audience. Bob Slavin. with hair rumpled and tie awry, in remarkable contrast to the rest of the players who were sleeping soundly CFD put the audience in gales of laughter. Dulcy's attitude of fear toward Schuyler Van Dyck, the morning after, proved startling as well as ludicrous, for the audience was on pins and needles for fear of violence on Van Dyck's part. Her words were amusinglv naive, "I ordered breakfast for him-soft boiled eggs," she enumerated on her lingers, Hand soft milk toast-all very soft, you know." We "view with pride" the short waits between actsg the orchestra which did so well without Mr. Wilson, the candy girls Hitting daintilv and profitably about in their Prom dresses. As usual the Tattler, a special dramatic number, was sold by Senior boys between the acts. Words fail to praise Mrs. Jane Milliken Tufts' part in putting the play over and making it a success. The results amply illustrate her remarkable initiative and skill as a coach. The Faculty Committee, composed of Mrs. Sweetser, Miss Cramer, and Miss Cornell, worked hard helping to make the play successful, and we are truly grateful to them. All in all, it was "a corking play," as some of the audience re- marked when they left the auditorium after the grand finale-at onlv 10:15 p. m.!

A Q -- ,sg The royal class of 1927, which came into the high school in the fall of 1923, had the makings of many good athletes, and throughout its career has done its part to keep up the reputation of N. H. S. ln our freshman year nobody was good enough to make the grade of varsity football. Several, however, worked hard in the role of sub- stitutes and played in many games, so that the presence of the fresh- men was felt during the wonderful season the football team had. The tjeamkwas very successful, and lost only to Manchester, 7-O on a luckv rea '. The basket-ball team had a very successful year, even though there were no freshmen on the varsity squad. The team won about half of their games. The next sport in order is baseball, where 1927 was surely well represented. Bobby Dion, by his brilliant playing, made the varsity and had an excellent season in both batting and fielding. He held down second base and played remarkably well. This year Nashua High won the state championship. The record included victories over Concord, llflanchester, Lowell, Lawrence, and other familiar teams which usually appear on our schedule. Next comes track of our freshman year. Although we did not win the interclass meet, we scored several points through the ability of Anthony Grigas, our great weight man and javelin thrower. He also scored several points for the team in outside meets. ln September, 1924, the beginning or our sophomore year, our class was well represented on the gridiron with Grigas, Taggart, and Kilbane making the varsity. Several other members of '27 played, but did not win their letters. Through a misunderstanding this year we did not play Manchester. The team was undefeated and had an enviable record, which included a 7-O victory over our new-made rival and friend, Meriden. ln basket-ball that winter we had one man, Charles Desmarais, make the varsity. The second team also had a very successful season, f 'W TUSITALA 71 playing soc games. All '27 men appeared on the second team. Nashua won the' right to represent this part of the state at the New Hampshire Llniverslty tournament. After winning the preliminary, we were de- feated by Lebanon i11 the semi-hnals. Charles Desmarais, because of his excellent work of the season, was chosen to lead the basket-ball quintet of 1926. ' D In baseball, sophomore year, we had three lettermen. Bobby Dion continued his prowess of the year before, playing very well at second. Charlie Desmarais turned out to be a very good pitcher, win- ning several games for the team. Leo Guimond played in the outfield and showed up well. The team again captured the state championship, and scored victories over our deadly rivals, including Manchester. The track team again had a '27 man for its star, since Grigas showed up well and scored several points for the track team. Our class placed second in the interclass meet. The school team won the majority of its meets. In September, 1925, our class was again represented on the grid- iron by Kilbane, Pentland, Taggart, and Grigas. The season was verv successful, for we lost only to Manchester, 7-6 on a lucky break for them. This season a scoreless tie was played at Meriden. The team was treated royally while there, so that the boys who made the trip will always remember it. The class of '27 was well representated in basket-ball during the winter of '26 with Captain Desmarais, Sabluski, Downey, and Tinker making their letters. The team had a very good season with twelve victories and five defeats, and we again won the right to represent this section of the state at Durham in March, 1926. We defeated the highly touted Lebanon team in the preliminary, and Littleton in the semi-finals. Manchester, our deadly rival and jinx, defeated us in the finals, how- ever, the score being 31-17. The team received silver basketballs for tinishing runners-up. The following week the team was invited to the Tufts College Tournament, where we were defeated. by Northampton by a 40-12 score. This was probably the most successful season played since the sport was started. Sabluski was elected to lead the team of '27, because of his fine playing throughout the season. . In baseball of '26 we had the following letter men: Dion, Dobe11S, Desmarais, Travers, and Guimond. The team was very successful and won the majority of its games, but was defeated by Concord for the state championship. Bobby Dion, playing his third season at second base, was elected captain for 1927. ' ' u ' In track we had our old stand-by "j1ggs" Grigas scoring points and breaking records for us. ln the interclass meet the class of '27 was second only to the seniors. Grigas and Pentland won their letters. Grigas broke the record for the javelin throw at the inter-scholastics at Durham, and also won the 12-pound shot put event.. During the summer of '26, the class of '27 received a very severe shock when Robert Pentland, one of our best athletes, was killed in an ww 72 TUSITALA automobile accident. He ,was greatly mourned and missed by his plassgates and friends. He was a football letterman and track captain or . The football season of '26 was the most disastrous season for a Nashua team in many years. The team played two tie games and lost seven. This was due to the inexperience of the boys and the heavy scheduleiundertaken by them. james Kilbane, who had injured his back during the season of '25 and was kept out of all the games, was sorelv missed by his team mates. Taggart, an end, was acting captain in Kilbane's place, however, and worked hard for the good of the team. Tinker played fullback and did all the punting, plaving verv well in this position. Kilbane, Tinker, Taggart, and Manager Harold Hackett were lettermen. Then came basketball, and '27 had five lettermen, Captain Sabluski, Desmarais, Tinker, Bobby Dion, and Faber, a new bov in school. The team played well, winning 12 games and losing 7. Dion, in his first vear out, made the varsity and plaved a verv good brand of basket-ball. Desmarais plaved perhaps best, but was closely followed bv Captain Sabluski and' Tinker. The team went to the state tournament at Durham, defeated Kennett High in the preliminary, but was defeated by Manchester in the semi-finals 26-ll. At the present writing baseball has started verv well. The team 't first ame bv a 6 2 score defeating Marblehead. Cap- won 15 g , - , tain Robbv Dion, Charlie Desmarais, "Red" Travers, "Chet" Dobens, ' ' d h is and Ray Chaloner of 27 have made the team. Leo Guimon , w 0 over-age, will be sorelv missed in the outfield. I D ' u The track team has begun its season and from all. indications it should be very successful. The interclass meet, held April 22, was won 1 k bilitv Crigas won by the Seniors, who displayed wonderfu trac a . 1 three first places and one second. Faber, the basketball letterman, won two first places and tied for another first place. Thompson won one first and one second place. Mullikin won one first place. Brown! wort the mile and third in the half mile. The relav team. composed of Art' Matsopoulos, "Bobby" Dion, john Barry, and Rob Thompson, won first place. Other '27 point winners were Chaloner, Zapenas, Tinker, Hild Dube. Another sport which this spring has witnessed is field hockev for Girls Ruth Church of '27 is manager. It looks as though the team h sical director, would have a successful season. Mr. Brown, our new p Y is coach of both field hockey and track. . .

The great room was silent. Around a large oak table in the center sat a group of sad-faced men, who appeared to be greatly moved bv the events about to take place. Nosy, the office pup, sat on the edge of the balcony watching them. Handkerchiefs and sorrowful expres- sions were frequently applied to the faces of the participants. Suddenly there was a loud crash, which nearly shook the founda- tion of the building, and the large double doors at one end of the hall swung open. In walked a typical Jimmy VValker and sat down at the head of the table, He cast his eve in every direction and noted the sorrowful expression of the assembly. He immediately arose and said, "I, President Tucker, command that you cast upon me the reasons and objects of your free-for-all weeping contest." Downey, commonly known as Mr. America, thereupon rose and addressed the President saying, "We are assembled todav to read the last will and testament of our newlv deceased class of l927." Nosy jumped in surprise. Surely 1927 was not dead! lts spirit would live forever at any rate. "If there be such a document present, may it now be read," said President Tucker. There was a unanimous turning of heads in the direction of the class heavyweight, Ujiggsu Grigas. Nosy presumed that he was chosen to do the deed, because of his ability to oppose opposition. 'fjiggsh rUsrrALA A vs - . arose with only a little damage to the furniture much to th ' of those gathered about the table. y 1 e Surprise "One day," said "Iiggs", f'as I was industriously studying chemisf' try, I accidentally mixed some strange chemicals together, and the re- sult was a mysterious colored ink. I tried writing with this ink and found that I could not control the movements of my hand. Here is what the pen wrote: .- , ."First. The class of 1927 hereby leaves to the high school a well- equipped laboratory. Therein will be found a well supplied stock of leaky sinks,' broken pens, electric fixtures full of rubber tubing, broken test tubes, impure chemicals, and a teacher who is a 'Peachf Mav 1928 receive the full benefits of the above. . i "Secondly We bequeath to one Herbert Canfield, instructor in said school, one year's subscription to the Babson statistical charts. We request that a magnifying glass be supplied with the same for use by weak-eved individuals in the room. "Thirdly. To Miss Brown we give the exclusive right to extin- guish the lights in the corridor near her room. QShe puts them out, anywayj "Fourthly. We bequeath to one Cheney Lawrence an automatic device which will turn out all lights in the basement when the bell rings for the end of the drill period. CNot that we minded the taking awav of the recess, but we were afraid that overtime drill was telling too much on his wonderful physiquej. "Fifthly. The class of 1927 hereby bequeaths to Miss Lillian Dowd, teacher in said school, one only, new, and shiny park bench to be placed outside the entrance of her room, for use by her and,the college boys while discussing old times. "Sixthly. We hereby bequeath to Walter 'Success' Nesmith a plan for a portable machine to be carried around his neck which shall emit a gentle little cough when a corner is approached in his dailyrou- tine of travel. May he find' the same very economical, as it will cut down expenses on his red-necktie bill. This bill is caused by the friction of his Adam's-apple on his necktie every time he coughs. A box of Smith Brothers' cough drops will also be supplied with the device. "Scventhly. We bequeath to Mrs. Sweetser one new American Hap' to re lace the one now in use. We have noticed that the present Hag P . has many holes in the bottom of it. This was probablv caused by the ' ' ' ' ' ' k t h desk. chewing of anxious students inquiring about their' mar s a er I "Eighthly. We hereby direct that an automatic apple corer be .in- stalled in the machine shop for the use of Mr. Goddard and his assist- ants who are the champion apple eaters of the city. . "Ninthly. We bequeath to one john Shea, custodian of our edi- fice, the right to the position as leading man in the Athletic ASSOCIHUOH Play for 1928. We are sure that he will makea successuof the part, 'ud in from the tests given him by Elmer Wilson during a period J g H , . when there were classes assembled in the laboratories. -.

Now we'll have peace.' f'Ele'uenthly, and lastly,iwe bequeath to anyone whom we have for- gotten, the pleasure of reading this will, the pleasure of knowing you are really not forgotten, and the pleasure of knowing that if we had remembered you, this part of the will would not have been written." "Jiggs" then sat down. President Tucker rose and addressed the assembly saying, "Are there any errors or omissions? If not, I com- rk mand that the report be published." F . "Sir," s oke Downe , "there is a bus outside to conve us to the r. P Y Y . last resting place of l927." J ' The entire crowd then drove away and as they were leaving, Nosv, Q the office pup, heard Brown say, "What shall we do after the funeral ?" "Cy" Greeley was heard to remark, "We'll go out into the world E and see what's there,-if you'll wait for me." We wonder how long Brown had to wait. z WATSON A.

I'I11cing it W -f I A if fm ' 4' 78 TUSITALA upon my head, somewhat self-consciously, I walked to the opening in the center of the temple. Intoxicating vapor seemed to rise from it, and soon I felt myself cast into a spell of drowsiness. I immediatelv started to ask questions, first requesting information concerning Mar- jorie Champney, who had been Vice-President of our class. A low, cracked voice repliedg "All over the world, she is known as the greatest and most popular star of musical comedies. Her sweet voice and ability to act have won her this international fame. A form- er classmate of yours, Leslie Russell, is her competent manager." This was good news of these two classmates! I eagerly asked for more. "In Paris I see an exclusive cloak and hat shoppe. The owners are Lucille Carroll and Alma Mansfield. And their most attractive model is Yvonne Rondeauf' I remembered the good-looking clothes of these girls, and smiled with pleasure. "Not far from this Shoppe is another exclusive one-a hairdressing salon. This is owned and managed by Helen Christian and Katherine Clifford." Undoubtedly all my classmates were succeeding. "Pray tell me, what of Barbara Moran and Dede Flather?" I asked, "Both these girls have entered matrimonial life. Barbara has mar- ried a chap with a head of burnished curls, and at present they are liv- ing at Newport, Rhode Island, where she has been unanimously chosen leader of the younger set. Dede has married the young and dashing Duke of Bedfordshire, and is prominent at the English court. She has also become a famous horsewomanf' Here the voice stopped for a few minutes, and the vapor seemed to become heavier. Then the voice continued in the same monotone. l'Leonard Paquette is the greatest violinist in the country, and his accompanist is none other than Francis Downey." I was not surprised to hear this when I remember how well both the boys had played in high school. "Do you remember Alice French and Barbara Buswell?" The voice went on: 'lThey have both become nurses, and have been hon- ored because of their great work in the war in China. Harold Hackett. your class orator, is the greatest political leader of the Democratic Partv in the United States. The President, who, by the way, is Richard Mul- vanity, often asks his advice. And the President's private secretary is Natalie Tanar. Another popular girl of your class, Susan Crouch, is editor of the New York Times and is also winning much fame by her poetry. Ruth Church is the physical director of the Nashua Schools, and is ably filling her position. Helen Wilson is librarian in a New York library, and she also writes. Her latest novel, "Ink", a startling expose of the evils of modern society, has just been placed,pn the mar- ket. Sylvio Beston is a great stock-broker on Wall Street. Evidentlv he had decided upon this career after acting the part of Mr. Forbes in the Senior Play. I Again the voice seemed to wander away and then come back amidst the thicker vapor. P-Jai-I Fifi- '9if.5W' 'vi' rlfipf, I 'cf .-.,,At7L.' 1' Q, TUSITALA 79 "Margaret Broderick conducts tours around the world, and at present is stopping at Rome. Charline Miller and Marion Hickey are the owners of a Domestic Science School in North Carolina. Ella McCoy is doing concert work, having studied voice in Paris and Rome. The movie idol of the present high school girls is Ricardo Taggarito- in plain English, Richard Taggart. One of the greatest surgeons in America is Ted Hagerty." Remembering Ted's high school ambitions, I was not surprised at the last information. This whole list, in fact, certainly made me confident that my class- mates were attaining their hearts' wishes. But I urged the voice to go on, and tell me of the rest. 'tDonald Halgren, editor of your class book, is editor of the Nashua Telegraph, and he also is a candidate for Mayor. Josephine Sullivan and Irene Roche are deans of a Girls' Latin School in Pittsburg. Ger- trude Cousins is the private secretary of a prominent business man of America. Philip Morrison, a forceful lawyer, has just won a case convicting the notorious criminal, Diamond Mike, of the mysterious murder of the wealthy banker, Charles Channing. This case had been unsettled for years." t'And what has become of Milton Tracey and Andrew Zapenas ?" I asked. "Milton is the owner of an exclusive men's clothing store on Fifth Avenue, and advocates 'what the well-dressed man will wear.' Andrew is owner of a branch of theatres established all over the world. And speaking of theatres, Roger O'Neil is perhaps the best-known comedian on the stage at the present time. Hilda Young, having! trained her lovely voice, is instructor of music in' a girls' private SC 001 in Cam- bridge. Nora Burnham is a dietitian at Simmons College. Etta Weis- man has married a lawyer, and is living in Chicago." With these last words the vapor cleared and I seemed to be aware of life moving around me. Somewhat dazedly I got up, and walking back to my Ford, proceeded to rejoin my family. Do you believe in the supernatural? I do, for hadn't I just found out all about the whereabouts of my old classmates? V JANICE DURIVAGE II When I graduated from N. H. S. in 1927, the United States was at war with China. I enlisted in the Marines and after several months ' ' ' h l li ht the Chinese. Mv of training, I was shipped to the Orient to e p g third day in the trenches, I was struck on the forehead by an enemv bullet and became unconscious. When I regained consciousness again, l ' n the round and a crowd of people was standing around I was ying o g me talking excitedly. A man whom I had never seen before was pass- ing, a damp cloth over my forehead. F ,Q So C TUSITALA gg g "Where am I?" I asked. "What happened? Did we drive the Chinese back ?,' . Everyone laughed but my friend, the good Samaritan. "You're in good hands, john," he said, "and we drove the Chinese back-drove them back twenty-three years ago! You were hit by a bullet and lost your memory. I recognized you and took care of you. You've been working for me in my chemical factory for twenty years. Today we were watching a baseball game and you were struck by a foul ball. The impact jarred something within your head and your memory came back, completely, I hope." "Who are you ?" I asked. "George Kean," he said with a smile. George Kean it was, owner of a great, nationally known chemical rpqanufactory in Walla Walla, Washington, where we happened to be at t e time. That evening, as I was taking a stroll, trying to collect my thoughts, I passed a small news-stand and noticed a newspaper entitled The Nashua Telegraph and Tattler. I bought the newspaper for twenty- tive cents, and went home to read it. George noticed it and said, "That newspaper is edited by Perry Brown and 'Cheti Dobens. The High School Tattler became so popular that the Nashua Telegraph had to consolidate with it or go bankrupt. Perry and 'Chet' made with it the greatest success that has ever happened to a paper. It is sold all over the world." While reading the paper, I came across a notice which stated that the class of '27 was going to hold a reunion on July 18. I showed the notice to George and we decided to attend the reunion. As it was then july 17, we had to leave immediately, and after packing up our bags, we went to the aviation field to take the air train. "This air transportation company is owned by jim Kilbane and Charlie Desmarais," said George. "The home office is in Nashua, while there are branch offices all over the world. Their chief rival is the Brookline Time-Defier Transportation Company, which is operated bv our old friend, Walter Corey. There is a constant business war be- tween these two companies." We traveled until about half-past ten in the evening. Along the way, I noticed in smoke writing on the clouds, "Patronize the Ogilvie- Martin tonsorial parlors." When I asked Kean about this, he said that Mildred Ogilvie and Yvonne Martin had taken a course in hair dress- ing at a famous school owned by Marion Harvey, and that they now owned a chain of ten thousand beauty parlors spread over the United States and Canada. He told me that Marion Harvey had taught bank- rupt queens and princesses how to make up their coiffures, and that she was known internationally for her Wonderful skill. After what seemed like ages, we arrived in Nashua and stopped at the Hotel Jambard. I soon found out that the proprietor was none other than Henry jambard, and I proceeded to renew an old friendship. I asked him if he could give me any news concerning the members of ' 'v-1""'lP1- t TUSITALA 31 the class of '27, and he said that he could and would. 1 "Take Arthur Matsopoulosf' he began. "There was a terrible time going on in Russia and the country was nearly ruined financially. 'Art' went over, and in four years he had the country on its own feet. The plneople were so grateful that they elected him president and he's still t ere. "Then there's John Farrell and john Sullivan. They own the power plant which supplies our electricity. If they failed us for just one night, untold calamities would result. "The Dougherty sisters, Helen and Isabel, run a school in which they teach Terpsichorean dancing. This form of diversion is all the rage just now. "john McCutcheon owns the Nashua Terrors, a baseball team which has won the world series for the last five years. 'Bob' O'Connell is the President of Harvard College. He was elected in 1937. I un- derstand that he is just like a pal to the students and even lives in the dormitories with them. "Helen Lemay and Jermaine Robichaud are interior decorators. They outfitted this hotel and the White House. They are very famous for the wonderful effects of color harmony which they produce. " 'Bob' St. Francois saved up enough money to open a country club on the old Lowell road in Hudson. People come to his club from everv part of the state and from Massachusetts and Maine. "Gertrude Kessler is proprietress of our rival hotel, the Kessler, and I must admit she has made a great success of the hotel business and intends to erect a new hotel in Hudson next year. " 'jiggs' Grigas is the present Mayor of Nashua, and he has just supervised an addition to the high school. Next year he is going to build a new high school. There was an enrollment of 2100 pupils this last year. "Frank Sabluski is basket-ball coach at Yale University and re- ceives a salary of fifty thousand dollars per year. His team has not been defeated in one thousand five hundred and fifty-two games. "Mary Maddox and Mary Mellin are designers of women's clothes, and their creations are eagerly watched for by all the women. Thev are at work just now designing the fall styles for New York's leading clothes exhibitors. "Anna Gleason is the principal of N. H. S. She is the First woman ever to be elected principal of this school. Annie Gilmore is the Presi- dent's private secretary and often substitutes for him. She has. done more than any other woman in Washington to help her country in the last twenty years. I "Anna Sullivan and Alice Flynn are famous prima donnas. Thev have succeeded Mary Garden, Amelita Galli-Curci, and Madame Tetrazzini as leading singers of the world. "Harold Edelstein runs a system of clothing stores in Nashua, Lowell, and Manchester. He has outfitted all sorts of men, from race- track followers to the ambassador from Kalamazoo. He also owns PM' 82 TUSITALA several shoe stores. " 'Bob' Smith is a leading lawyer and a professor of law at the University of Southern California. He was Chief Justice of the United States for eight years, and like John Marshall, became famous for his clever interpretations of obscure clauses in the Constitution." While Henry had been talking, I had in stupefaction been gazing out of the window and had noticed a wonderful electrically-lighted bridge over the Nashua River. I inquired about it, and Henry told me that "Bob" Dion had discovered a radium mine in Hudson Center, and after making his fortune had donated an immense sum of money for the erection of a modern bridge. The bridge itself had been designed by Samuel Burns and Leo Guimond, who had taken up mechanical drawing in their high school days, back in '27. It was considered one of the three most beautiful bridges in the United States. As by this time I was feeling rather fatigued, I told Henry that I was going to retire. George Kean had not yet come in from a tour of Nashua. Since he was out renewing old acquaintances, I decided not to wait up for him and went to bed, tired but happy, and eager to attend a reunion of the class of '27 on the morrow. JOHN C. BARRY, '27 III "Time and tide wait for no man," I said slowly to myself as I gazed out over the glittering Pacific. "Therefore I must return to Nashua, for the ten years are up." Swiftly I thought over the details of our graduation ten years be- fore, and smilingly I meditated on that youthful and perhaps rash promise which we had made. I reviewed the exact words :-"We, the class of '27, faithfully promise to return to Nashua and to meet once more in Nashua High School on May 27, l937." On May 26 at seven in the eveningl stepped from the inter-state aeroplane which had carried me swiftly' through the clouds to Nashua, and landed on one of the municipal parking spaces reserved for aero- planes. Swiftly paying the aviator the required fee, plus a tip or two, I briskly walked to the Patience Hotel. I had previously telegraphed reservations, having heard that it was considered the best in Southern New Hampshire. Although I had not been in town for nine long years, the streets looked familiar, except for the presence of several skyscrapers. But I was hungry and wanted dinner. When I entered the vast lobby of the hotel, I saw a smartly clad woman approaching, and I waited for her. She smiled and spoke in a well-modulated voice. "The desk is over there." Then she stopped and looked more closely at me. "Why, it isn't Helen Wilson, is it?" "It surely is," I answered. "And I verily believe you are Patience Gidgef' 'Ji . Fv. ' 1 TUSITALA 83 "How do you like my hotel ?" she asked me, with just a note of well-deserved pride coming into her voice. "I think it's great!" l replied, "although I haven't seen much of it. How is Amie ?" Patience reported that Amie was in partnership with her and that they both enjoyed putting their business training in practice running a hotel. Since she kindly asked me to dine with her sister and her, l hurried to my room to prepare for dinner. The softly-lighted dining-room which we entered a little while later was filled with well-dressed men and women. As I looked around, while we were waiting, I saw a couple approaching, who looked vague- ly familiar. What was my astonishment to discover that the gentleman was Tom Cheetham and the lady, Janice Durivage. Amie explained their being together. "Tom is about to introduce to the world a new mathematical theory, and Janice is much interested in mathematics. Perhaps she is collaborating with him. Besides re- taining her interest in mathematics, Janice has developed into the most sought-after violin player in town." ' "Tom always was a perfect shark in math," I replied, "and Janice played her violin remarkably well even back in N. H. S. days." Amie then told me that Helen Anderson, Eliza Chase, and Edna Smith had established a private school which was a great success. "Helen Wilson !" voices exclaimed over my left shoulder. I turned to look. "If it isn't Marv Devereux and Marion Tessier!" After the usual questions and exclamations of surprise, I discov- ered that the two girls were teaching school in Cambridge and lived together in a "darling apartment." "Rhoda Dane is principal of Boston Latin School, too," Marion surprised me by saying. "She won't be able to arrive in town till to- morrow, but I don't wonder-she's so very busy." "You remember Ruth Shenton," said Mary. "She's a celebrated poetess now. Her poems are lovely. Lillian Sherwin often sets her poetry to music. Lillian's musical compositions are beautiful. Let's all go to the theatre," she then suggested abruptly. "Let's," Marion and I replied,-and we did. The theatre was immense, the "biggest and best" in Nashua, as Mary said. The architecture and unique lighting effects entranced me. Finally l forced myself back to reality in time to hear that Walter Davis had made the plans of the theatre, and Wade Smith was stage manager of all plays which came there, while,Walter Traver supervised the movie machine and musical end of it. It seems that everyone who had anvthing built had Walter Davis plan it-for he was the best known architect in New England. Wade, on the other hand, had written and produced two successful plays. Walter Traver had invented a new photograph machine and had made millions taking portraits of Nashua society. Katherine Sweeney proved to be the leading lady in the play which 1 1 'T' 84 TUSITALA we saw that night. She really was sweet, too. "Red" Travers was the villain. "Whoeve1' would have thought it!" I murmured to Marion. "He never showed any villainy when he sat in Mrs. Sweetser's corner seat our Senior year." , "He plays baseball besides acting, too," said Mary. "How is Dorothy Osgood F" I asked during intermission. "She,s fine!" said Marion. "She's a successful interior decorator now. You know she had charge of the interior of the Patience Hotel. She takes an annual trip to Italy and France, and gets the most wonder- ful ideas." "I-Iow splendid!" I cried. f'Edna Linscott is an invaluable member of the faculty at Simmons. She teaches cooking to the girls, and is well-liked by all," said Mary. After we left the theatre, we took a walk. Whom should we meet but David Faber, whom we recognized instantly because he still wore that "million dollar smile." "How do you do F" he said when we couldn't resist stopping him and speaking. I found that he was the owner of the aeroplane industry of Nashua -including hangars. He owned fifteen aeroplanes, manipulated by a group of lirst class aviators under the able direction of Edward Murphy. 'Edward Murphy is a star in that line," David said. "His me11 work together with never a hitch, year in and year out." After we left David, we went immediately to the hotel, but Marv had a final bit of news for me before I went upstairs. "Don't forget to be at the new high school building tomorrow morning at quarter after eight. That is where the Arlington Street School used to beg it's an immense building, and the city is so large that pupils take aeroplanes, as we used to board street cars, from the outskirts of old Nashua. Hudson has been annexed, long ago, and so the boundaries are quite far from the center of the city." At half-past six the next morning I was walking through the al- ready busy streets of Nashua. In the clear light, the city looked larger and more attractive than it had the night before. As I strolled along, I heard the clatter of hoofs on the pavement, and looking up saw two straight familiar figures astride the horses. "If that isn't Nellie Connor and Mary McCarthy, I'll miss mv guess," I said to myself as they neared. i Both riders stared, smiled incredulously, jumped from their sad- dles, and we exchanged greetings. "You don't mean to tell me," I remarked, Nthat you two are actu- ally riding horseback in this day of mechanical contrivances? I thought that the race of riding horses was almost extinct." "It is!" said Mary. "But look at these again more closely." I looked again, and saw that the horses were not alive-not real at all, but very clever imitations, run by electricity. The girls told me TUSITALA s5 that they were the first actually to display in Nashua replicas of ex- President Coolidge's hobby and that they were teaching people how to manipulate them. ci'Progress is surely starting in New England in these days!" I crie . On the way back to my hotel whom should I meet but Cyrus Greeley, whom I recognized by the individual slouch which he had re- tained from N. H. S. days. He told me that he was the leader of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and I well knew that he had been suc- cessful, for the Symphony still retained the reputation it had had in 1927. While I was eating breakfast, Dorothy Osgood appeared, and came immediately to my table. As I ate, we visited with each other, and gradually switched the conversation into gossipy channels. "Bob Slavin has unearthed an ancient city under Hollis," said Dorothy. "He has discovered perfect marvels in primitive art and pre-historic relics. He began as a professor at Harvard after he got his M. A. degree, but he drifted into archeological work and this is the result!" "Will wonders never cease ?" I began, when Dorothy revealed more news :-"Ione Cate, Marion Stearns, and Louise Walker went to Japan. They started a little mission school and have worked wonders over there helping japanese orphans." "Isn't that lovely!" I cried. "Think of the good they must be do- ing. Are they coming this morning?" "They are. It's the first vacation they've taken, but they're here. "Louise Busi is the first woman violinist to play in the New York Philharmonic orchestra. We all think that's great!" said "Dot", and went on to add, "Helen Bacigalupo runs a 'charm' school. You read the book ages ago. She's putting the theory to practical use, and is having amazing results. Helen Jones has swum across Behring Straits -a remarkable feat. Irene Roche has made a name for herself as a tragedienne. She came with a New York Stock company as Ladv Macbeth in Shakespeare's tragedy. Josephine Sullivan has publishefl a geometry text-book which hasinade a hit with high schools, it's so clear and concise. Mary Wolfson is the onlv woman movie producer in Nashua, and she's made more money than any other of the producers. Fannie Lucien and Mildred Cady run a beauty parlor which occupies the whole floor of one of the largest buildings in town." "Stop! Stop !" I managed to say, weakly leaning back in my chair. "I never realized back in 1927 that our class was going to be so verv successful. It's amazing!" . Soon I found myself in the new high school building. My former classmates thronged the mighty entrance. n i And now, dear classmates, I leave it to you to picture our reunion in 1937, where we relived the gaieties and frivolities which we had en- joyed as the class of 1927. . HELEN WILSON I ' ' 3' 7 , s. .-, , V - I - . . se TUSITALA IV . ' "G'wan there. Get offa that 'ere car,', yelled.-.the brakeman as he kicked me out of the side-door Pullman. Landing quite heavily, I lost my breath, and thus was unable to make explanations until the freight train was a long distance away. Painful injuries forced me to hobble slowly along the road until a kind motorist offered me a ride to the nearest city. As I stepped into the car, I recognized the driver. "Well, hello, old timer," I said enthusiastically. "If it isn't John Tucker. This is indeed quite a surprise." john expressed his amazement at seeing me in such a condition, but I explained to him that I was a professor of bugology in a western school, and in order to carry on my work to the best advantage, it was necessary for me to spend my vacations in close association with the subjects of my study. From what john said, I gathered that he was fast gaining a name for himself as a lawyer and orator. He was kind enough to take me to the nearest hospital, where he left me to be treated. I soon saw a doctor and a nurse coming toward me, and I was once more greatly surprised when I saw that they were Leonard Dunbar and Clarabelle Davis, two of my old friends. Leonard was the chief physician at the hospital and Clarabelle the head nurse. They man- aged to hx me up fine, and offered to find me a position in a large asbestos factory nearby, owned and operated by the only john C. Barry, but I refused, and again explained nay reasons for having been found in such a peculiar misfortune. Issuing forth from the hospital, I boarded a large double-decked bus which boie the sign, "Chaput and Classon, Transportation Com- pany." When I explained that Uriel and Gerald were friends of mine, the conductor didn't ask me for any fare. In the business section I dropped off the bus fthis time of my own initiativej and went into a clothing store where Adrian Levesque had all his tailors make me a fine suit while I waited. When I walked proudly out of Adrian's high class establishment, I was accosted by a society matron to buy a ticket for the annual charitv ball. Of course I bought three when I saw who was selling them. It was Albertine Beauchemin, recognized leader of the local "four hundred." On my way to the station, I stood in the middle of the street, gaz- ing idly around, when I was suddenly swept off my feet by a person who seemed as strong as Atlas. It was Robert Gardner, and he had whisked me out of the way just in time to avoid my being struck bv a gigantic truck. I was so very thankful for that kind deed of "I3ob's" that I decided to wish myself on him and keep him company for a while. He was a traveling writer and was going back to Nashua. While we were at the station, a large crowd gathered to watch the private train of a great movie actress go through. That actress hap- pened to be Barbara Smith, and she smiled out at us as sweetly as could be. -. '.'.. 4 . . la W4 .. s., in TUSITALA 87 As we boarded our train, we 11oticed someone waving to us from an upper window of the station. I "That's Arthur Ubin, chief train despatcher of this road,'l said "Bob," as we waved back. "You know, don't you, that Murray March and Ernest Pelletier are the owners of this railroad? 1.et's go back into their private car. They can probably tell us of a few more of our old friends." Consequently we went into the luxurious private car and were warmly greeted by Ernest and Murray. "Sure," said Murray, "we are going right by the .places of several of the old bunch. See, over there! That's the naval academy. That lleet in the harbor there is in the charge of Markland Clement. lle's an admiral now. Robert Thompson is the head athletic coach there, too. "See that big sign-board up on the hill? That's advertising a bill- ion dollar movie production with Ray Chaloner as leading man. Re- member Sonia Landry? She wrote the scenario." "Well, well! Some class! I do say," I managed to murmur. "Let's listen to the radio," suggested Ernest. have here a set made especially for use on trains, by the Rand Radio Companv. 1t's one of Watson's inventions, and it's some set, too." Soon we heard the announcer say, "The next will be a speech en- titled 'The Present Child-Labor Situation, and the Dangers Therein,' to be delivered by Mr. George Marion, President of the National So- ciety for the Welfare of Children." George certainly had the right idea, and he was capable of ex- pressing itin a way that made even us sit up and take notice. Then the announcer told us that his station had bein very fortu- nate to secure the two foremost musicians in the country for a short program. They were Andrew Sardonis, banjoist, and Kenneth Smith, saxophonist, the very two boys who used to thrill us so with their music in N. H. S. The scenery along the railroad seemed to be familiar to me, and upon inquiry 1 found that we were, in fact, approaching Nashua. "Hob" suggested that we stop off there to see what we could see. As this was distinctly all right with me, we took our leave of Ernest and Murray and prepared to see the thriving metropolis of Nashua. The iirst thing I did was to buy a Nashua Tvlcgrciplz, and usual T turned first to the comic section. lt didn't surprise me any either, when I saw the strip of cartoons drawn by "Romul." I knew who that was all right. "Romul" was just Robert Mullikin's nom-de-plume. "Bob" and I then strolled around here and there until we came to the new city-hall. It was fully twenty stories high, designed bv Richard Duncklee, who was a prominent architect, and built by VVilfred How- arth and Kenneth Hobart. They had become two of the world's great- est construction engineers. -, A tablet on the outside of the building informed us that Lucille Grandmaison was the public-spirited donor of the building. lt seems that she had become very rich, but had not forgotten dear old N ashua. 88 TUSITALA As I was becoming tired, we stopped at Philip O'Meara's eight story garage and asked him to loan us a car for old time's sake. 'tPhil" was very glad to do it, and so with "Hob" at the Wheel we started out to see the rest of the city. One magnificent building on Main Street was a bank, of which "Bob" said Viateur Morin was president. Next to the bank was a large ice-cream parlor, doing a rushing business, and run by Beatrice Farnham and Sophie Sullivan. Of course we went in there to have some ice cream, and while we were chatting with the owners, we noticed that across the street was the Ubigger and better" Nashua Pharmacy, Ernest Dube, Proprietor. Over the drug store were the Tinker Chemical Laboratories, occu- pying five stories. john had become a great chemist and had estab- lished successfully in Nashua. Then "Bob" drove me to his home on Crown Hill, from which we could see in the distance a peculiarly shaped building where Fred Church was continuing the work of Einstein, after that famous scien- tist's death. I left "Bob" at his home and promised to take the car back to Philip's garage. Out of idle curiosity I stopped the car and gazed ad- miringly at an airplane Qwhich I later learned was piloted by Paul Johnson jthat was writing in the air, "William Wilcox for Governor." Unfortunately I had stopped the car on a railroad track and since the engineer of a fast freight didn't deem it necessary to wait for me to re- move myself, he took it upon himself to remove me. And he did. I Wasn't hurt as seriously as might have been expected, but the car was a total loss, and I didn't think it best to go back to "Phil's" garage then, because mv financial condition couldn't stand the strain, consequentlv I hopped into one of the passing freight cars where I knew I would soon collect more specimens, and resolved to send "Pl-il," free of charge, a copy of my book of bugology which I was almost ready to publish.
