Helen was a star in school, who always
studied her lessons thoroughly, and recited
them every day. 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.

"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.

XX'hen Allsertine entered the school, N. H.
S. acquired a diminutive maiden who was
Inoth pretty and clever. 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.

"SiI" Heston was one of the Imusiest Iwoys in
N. H. S. 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.

"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,"
"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.

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.

"Sammy" was a happy-go-lucky lad and a
great pal to his classmates. 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. Good
luck to you, old pall

liveryone liked Louise, who was always to
he seen with her chum "l'eg." 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

"l'eaches," as we knew her in class, was
liked hy everyhody. She was always merry
and jolly. 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.
"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.

"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.

"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. Best wishes
for the future from the class of '27.

K. ELIZA Cimsiz
"Sim -:mx ax frank ax frank would Irv."
"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,
"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
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. All rememher her lovely complexion
and bright lmlack eyes, She made a sturdy
little soldier in "Xlareheta" l.

JAMES lXlARicLAND CLICMENT
"Character is a fverfertly vduratvzi twill."
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.
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' .

Clarabel seemed such a quiet girl that hard-

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-

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-

All-State Basket-Ball Teams both his Junior
and Senior years. His activities give good

complaining of how much work they had,
Viateur could be found studying and saying

saw her studying hard every day.

'1Kefmy" was missed lmy his friends when he
left each spring to take a trip down into the
land of swarthy-skinned natives and of rev-
olutions, and it was with joy that they wel-
comed him liack again in the fall. He didn't
go out for many activities during his school
career, but in one way or another, he was
connected with all that went on in the school.
His friends will long remember him as the
lvoy with the saxophone and the smile, for
lmoth as a saxophone player and as a smiler he
was an artist.

Only one guess is necessary. X'Yhy, of

our Class, first in ties, first in scarfs, and first
in the styles of N. H. S. VVheu "Milt" had a
little spare time, he devoted it either to ath-
letics or to dancing. Besides supporting the

one boy who knew his own mind, and who
had the courage of his convictions, a chap
who knew what he was doing, and why. He
was quiet and reserved unless someone started
him ot? on a favorite topic. He was not well
known by very many of his classmates prob-
ably, because he did not join our ranks until
his junior year, but those who did come to
know him found a real friend. VN'e sincerely
hope that he meets with the best of success in
years to come.

Alas, dear classmates, we have reached
The point where crossroads meet,
And we must choose uncharted paths
To guide our unskilled feet.
This is the "Take-It-Easy-Road,"
That seems so full of worth,
But lurking dangers waiting here
Will put an end to mirth.
Here at the left is "Get-By-Lane"
Where a fellow never worksg
But day by day he drifts along
And his duty blithely shirks.
And this one here is "Worth-While-Climb,"
A rocky and hilly road,
But Ambition lends a helping hand
To lighten your heavy load.
And as we view these many ways
To failure and success,
We pause at last before the one
That leads to happiness.
And though you have to work and wait
On the road that leads to fame,
At its end youlll find Contentment dwells,
For at least you've played the game.
So now, dear class, a fond adieu
We'll bid to Nashua Highg
As we toil up the "Worth-While-Climb,"
Her lessons we'll apply.
And teachers dear, we'll not forget,
Though we travel East and Westg
For we know that what you've given us
Made us choose the road that's best.

. 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
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
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-

"Dulcy" in that respect, only he was more eifectivej The disappear-
ance of the necklace and its return serve to keep the audience wonder-
ing, especially because Henry's character is so baliling. 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
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.!

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
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
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
ln basket-ball that winter we had one man, Charles Desmarais,
make the varsity. The second team also had a very successful season,
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
automobile accident. He ,was greatly mourned and missed by his
plassgates and friends. He was a football letterman and track captain
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
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

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
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
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
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

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,
"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
has many holes in the bottom of it. This was probablv caused by the

"Eighthly. We hereby direct that an automatic apple corer be .in-

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

"Tenthly. We leave to others in the faculty the right to say, Tm
glad that class is gone. 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."
. "Sir," s oke Downe , "there is a bus outside to conve us to the

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

Brown had to wait.

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
"Do you remember Alice French and Barbara Buswell?" The
voice went on: 'lThey have both become nurses, and have been hon-

Again the voice seemed to wander away and then come back amidst
the thicker vapor.

"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 ?"
"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
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,

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.
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
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
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
"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
"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
"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
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
"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
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
'Ji . Fv.
"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
Katherine Sweeney proved to be the leading lady in the play which

we saw that night. She really was sweet, too. "Red" Travers was the
"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-
"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
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
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
ci'Progress is surely starting in New England in these days!" I
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
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
"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.

' "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
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
'.'.. 4 .
W4 .. s., in
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.
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-
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.
