NESMITI-1 . an-" V' Foreword In compiling this book, we have worked with but one object in view, to give to our class a book of memories, a book the intrinsic value of which will increase with the flight of time, a book which will conjure up visions of a happy period spent within the walls of this school. We have been immeasurably aided in attaining these ends by our Faculty advisors who gave unsparingly of their time and experience with the interest of the Class at heart. We ask you, classmates, to look upon this book as a rendezvous where old friends can always be found, though scattered to the far corners of the earth, and so to you we present our "Teller of Tales", Tusitala of the Class of Nineteen Twenty-Nine. .

Anna was a very quiet girl until one came to know her intimately, but she was well liked by her classmates because of her ready and flashing smile. She was interested in dramaties, and also liked to dabble in verse- writing. She was a member of the Home Economics Club II, IH, IV, and was spokes- man for the Home Economies Course at the Parents' Day Assembly IV. ELIZABETH RIARIAN ARLAUSKAS "Truth needs no flowers of speech." A quiet little thing was Betty-to strangers -but loved very dearly by her friends. Shall we ever try to forget her Husters in English classrooms? HerAer-er'.r were very apt to bring a laugh to the most studious of students. She was among the first to discover that the old-fashioned girl with the long brown tresses was preferred to the bobbed maideng conse- quently you will recognize her by her beau- tiful brown hair-always curled. Tender- hearted! You should have been with her to see "VVings." Reading is her chief hobby, and she used her literary knack to advantage in her paragraphs, for she was a Tusitala Para- grapher from Room 2, TUSITALA XYILLIAM Tnoivms Axron 'QYL "Let Ilia 'world slide, lvl the world gbg A jig for rare, and a jig for woe." "Bill" was always expressing himself in terms which turned discussions into humorous debates. He was not at all afraid of giving his point of view on a suhject, even though he knew his companions thought differently. ln fact, informal delvates on world topics and everything in general, carried on with friends at a certain coffee-house or ice-cream parlor, managed to keep him occupied much of the time. He can he serious, however, if the occasion demands it. HQ likes outdoor sports and spends many hours outside, as his "school-girl complexion" will verify. lifixluzfmrzr josevnmia ISANc1zor1' "Girls of few words are the best girls." Margaret was one of the few quiet girls of our class, hut not too quiet. She could take a joke the way it was meant, and unfail- ingly appreciated it, a quality which won her friends. Those who knew her enjoyed her sturdy wholesomeness, and discovered her interesting knowledge of Colonial furniture and history. If she could have spent more time with us outside school hours, we are sure she would have made many more friends, hut she was one of the many who eommuted daily. No, not from Hudson! STANLEY JOHN BAR'r1s Ullrgmir, dull Care! Thou and I slzall nezier agree." Can you picture Stanley anything hut good- natured? He has a hearty giggle which is most contagious-and a ready supply of jokes. Do you suppose lacing one of the fixtures at a local "movie" house accounts for this? He had a rather outstanding fondness for Physics laboratory-at least he spent quite 3 little time there. XN'e're certainly glad he's in our class, because he always kept us in good humor. TUSITALA Iilaziwlcig S'rAs1A BARTKUs "Oli, I2lt'.fs'd with tenzfwr 'ZUIIOXK unrlouded ray Crm make tomorrow clwerful our today." Clearsighted and optimistic, Bernice leaves yesterday's troubles behind. She is like some character from 3 book,-knowing her, one can't help loving her. She puts self-respect above all else, is reliable, and has a strong will which leaves temptation behind. She will never desert a pal, no matter how hard it may be for her to stick. "Bronnie" is not by any means a paragon of virtue, but those whom she counts as her friends are to be envied. Her wit and wisdom were utilized as Tuxifala Paragraphcr IV. BERNICIQ Ile.-xNNmTis IlAsseTr "No bL'Clllfj',.Y lilfp the bvaufy of the mind." VVe shall always remember Bernice as one of the quietest and best-natured girls in our class, and as one whose mind was filled with beautiful ideals of character. All the girls were sure to go to Bernice whenever they needed help with their lessons. She could draw very well, and exercised her gift by making posters for different classes. VVe really think she should teach Home Organiza- tion, because she was such a shark at that subject. Bernice was a member of Home Economics Club II. NoRMA Lsixvemson BATES "flaw zfoira .spoke lioncxvt frie11.d.vhip." Norma was one of our semi-local girls who came down from the Milford road every day to our large "hall of learning." She was always cheerful and made many friends. She sang in "Pinafore" II, and "The Belle of Barcelona" IV, sold candy at the Senior Play IV, and was in Dramatics Club IV-to say nothing of her frequent excellent contri- butions to Tafflvr. Norma intends to be a school-teacher, we believe. Be good to the children, Normal TUSITALA STELLA BAUSHA "Ki.v.rr'd by flip ll11gl'lS.l: No one ever saw Stella unhappy just be-- cause she got a "flunk." Cl'erhaps she never got oue.l She was that little girl with pretty blonde hair and the blue, blue eyes. What if she did have an exasperating habit of asking what the homework was, just after the teacher assigned it? VVhen we look at Stella, we are not surprised that "Gentlemen prefer blondes." Stella helped the following activi- ties by her presence: Basketball I and II, Field Hockey II, Mandolin I and II, and Orchestra I and II. WALT:-iR Bxwsu A "He was always into mi.vfI1ief." Just one activity among VValter's many con- sisted of his parking his gum, daily, in the wastebasket-a ritual of not uncommon occur- rence among the students. We remember him also for his headlong rush in and out of classrooms, and the impatient way he would toss that long blonde lock out of his eyes. Did anything ever upset his good nature? VVle think not. Other activities include: Basketball I, Track ll, Football l and ll, Stage Committee of Senior Play TV. CHARLOTTE LAURA BENSON "S1ze'.r,not a flmufr, not a pearl, But just a wonderful, all-'round girl." Charlotte always greets us with a smile and a cheering word. She is popular, jolly, and full of pep. Her neighbors were entertained in study periods with her clever pictures, nor must we forget to give Charlotte credit for the artistic stippling she did in decorating the Home Economics room. We expect to hear great things of her success as an artist. Of course, the name is famous already on ac- count of the orange elephant, but she'll prob- ably make it better known. TUSITALA BARBARA ELIZABETH BERRY "Can-Ii that glint of nzixrhief in her eye? That nzvans tliereir something doing by and bv!" Was there ever a game or an entertainment going on when you didn't see "Barbs" flying around with a hunch of tickets in one hand, a pencil and paper in the other, and an anxious frown on her face? No wonder Miss Dowd chose her for a capable errand girl. "Barhs" did not seem averse to asso- ciating with underclassmen. We hope that she instilled in them some of the knowledge which she, as a senior, had, of course, acquired. Her favorite pastime was listening to fellow students recite Shakespeare's quota- tions. Isn't that so, "Barhs"? Orchestra I, II, III, IVQ Ticket Committee-"Merton of the Movies." and "The Bell of Barcelona" IV. Glcfnuzia BISKADUROS "Senza .rlzonf him, aind some hang upon his far, To gaze in his eyes, and bless him." Say! VVho is this good looking youth? NVhy, no one less than "Bisk." To do him justice we would have to be another Shakes- peare, but we'll do the best we can. To "I3isk" belongs one of the foremost places among our popular set. He was N. H. S.'s football pride and joy during I, II, III, and Captain IV, and he surely worked hard to add victories to the roster. He was no less famous on the diamond during II, III, and IV. His other activities were: "Two Vaga- bonds" III, Drill Leader II, III, IVQ Lunch Counter IV. Most of us envied his ability to retain dates-not history. Can he smile? And how! His only weakness seems to be women, but if he keeps on smiling and work- ing, success will be his. Rocniciie lsAne1.1.e BLACK "Her dignity bcguiles one." "Sheltie" is one of our dearest pals. Al- though her dignity impresses one, she never- theless shared in all our fun in 7a. fAre we telling secrets?D Groton held a strange allurementg wonder what it could have been? She was a very attractive candy girl at the Senior Play. Besides this, "Shel1ie" served at Lunch Counter IV. TUSITALA AIILDRIQD I'R1scn.i.A Boncnen "A wi11s011zv maid was she, And fair la look upon." "l"ive-feet-twog eyes of blue,"vthe words of the popular song describe "Mil" to per- fection. She didn't care much for studying, her mind being usually occupied with some- thing-or someone-else! How about that, "Mil"? She helped us out more than once by taking clever parts in entertainments. just look at these activities-NX'hat more need be said? "Miss Iiob White" I, "H, M. S. l'ina- iore" ll, Hockey ll, Orchestra II, IIIQ "The Two Vagaliondsn Ill, Drill leader I, ll, lllg llramatics Club lllg Cheer Leader Ill, IVQ "Merton of the Movies" IVQ "The Belle of Barcelona" IV. EDWARD Oris BROWN "A nzvrrirr main lllzllzziz the limzls of beromzng mirth I lIt"Z't'1' spent an ll0ll7',.Y falls iuztlmlf' "Ned" was one of those likable boys who loved to take things rather easily, yet was inevitably high in Upper Fourth through natural ability. He never cared to hike any too much, although he was ever eager for a little walk just across the Hudson Bridge. Being one of J, C.'s super-salesmen, he as- sisted in setting the styles at Nashua High. He was a Physical Exercise Leader III, served on the Lunch Counter III, and was a Trathc Oliicer Ill. He was in the cast of "The Two Vagabondsn III and "Merton of the Movies" IV. He held two Tattler otlices, Assistant Business Manager III, and Ex- change Editor IV. LICIGHTON Sn.As Iiuiusizss "Hp .mid little, but 011, ilze n1eaning."' Leighton was another of the jolly boys of Room 5. He was the "big boy" of '29. Dur- ing his four years, his personality won him many friends, especially among the weaker sex. Leighton never said much, but when he did there was always a meaning that left you in suspense-if you catch our drift. Leighton was a Tattler Reporter II, also an usher at the Senior Play IV. 'May the "Big Boy" realize big dreams. TUSITALA LAMBERT ARTHUR BURQUE "Those Crirfmri golden lo,rk.v." "Dugger" was one of our famous corridor beaus. How Well we remember his weakness, pr little habit of meeting a certain party in front of Room 5 each morn. He was ever present at our school functions, and was considered one of our best dancers. "Dugger:' craved more and more good music with the result that one beautiful evening, after having heard Paul VVhiteman, he found himself push- ing "I3ennie's" bus across Boston. A "No Gas" sign was hung out. Had "Dugger" taken athletics seriously, we think he would have succeeded in winning a letter. His activities were Baseball and Basketball squads ll and Ill, and the French Play in Assembly II. Aramis LUCILLE BUXTON "The glittering gaud may fix the passing gaze, But the pure gem gains Timers enduring praise." Agnes was a young lady who appeared rather quiet, but who Was in reality like the other fair maidens of our class. She was a sociable being, and usually there was a crowd about her desk, not only because she was jolly, but also because she knew her home- work. She ranked high on the Upper Fourth. Agnes was one of the few members of the Sophomore Debating Club, and again took up her debating during the Senior ycar. Her other activities were as follows: Dramatics Club lll, lVg Mandolin Club I, III, IVQ Or- chestra Ilg Candy Committee Senior Play: Candy Committee A. A. Play III, IVQ Lunch Counter IV. jarriu-:Y VVo1z'rH1NcroN CAMPBELL l'Il'l1o rlzarmx the gods? lVlzo makes Olym- pus yield? The power of man in Poelir art revealed." Did you ever see "Jeff" downcast? No, you couldn't have. "jeff" always went about wearing a broad smile, and he had a "Hail brother, well met" for everybody. Jeffrey seems to be a jack-of-all-trades: singer, musi- cian, trackman, orator, author, and poet. He himself admits that he was the busiest man in town. And he surely knew how to keep the underclassmen in their place, didn't you, ",leff"? Here are his ofhces: Orchestra, I, II, III, IVg Track I, II, III, IV, "Pinafore" llg Sophomore Debating Club, IIQ "Two Vagabondsf' III, Cheer Leader, III, IV: Debating Club III, IVQ Dramatics Club III, President IV, Literary Editor Tattler, II, III, Editor-in-Chief, IVQ Class Historian and Class Prophet, IV. TUSITALA VIRGINIA CAMPBELL "I must lzcwe an 'intro' to that man!" "Ginny" had one failing-men! Still, we all have our failings, and this wasn't serious with her. A tall, slender beauty, she had a charming way with men-boys, too. "Ginny" sold candy at "Miss Bob VVhite" I, played Basketball I and Hockey II, sang in "Pina- fore" II, and was a stunning movie "extra" in the Senior Play. JOHN CHESTNOLVICH "These are they Deserve their greatness and unewvied stand, Siztfz' 'zvlmt they art tra11.vI'vt1d.v what they rommandf' We settle down to write a serious biography, namely that of 'AChesty." To say everything there is to say about his good qualities, though, is more than we C311 do. He was a true gentleman aIId held some responsible posi- tions: Football I, II, III, Track II, III, Manager IVQ Trafnc Ofncer III, Drill Leader IIIQ Class Business Manager, III, "Two Vagabonclsu lllg Senior Play IV, Class Cos- tume Committee IV, "Belle of Barcelona" IV CHow that uniform fittedll We shall not be surprised to hear of him as a successful manager of some large corporation-or perhaps a stunning army officer! RENA GEoRoE CHIMIKLIS "IfVirming' every heatrt And deltghting every eye." Sweet-voiced, dark-eyed, and dreamy, Rena was nevertheless full of school spirit. For instance, she certainly knew how to make folks buy tickets-she received the hve dollar gold piece for selling the largest number for Senior Play. Rena could draw well-remem- ber that excellent sketch of "Lindy"? As for activities,-she was a member of Dramatics Club IVQ was on Senior Play Ticket Com- mittee IVQ and took part in "The Belle of Barcelona" IV. TUSITALA i El.lzA1ai-:TH R1"1'H CHRISTIAN "As rnerry as the day is long." "Libby's" witty remarks always kept the class in a perpetual uproar. She took life so easily that nothing seemed to bother her. Her two hobbies were collecting autographs and going to the movies to see her favorite actor. "Libby" belonged to the Home Eco- nomics Club Il, III, IV, and indeed from her interest in matters domestic, we think she will some day become a charming little home- maker. LEONA COHEN "Within her eyes she held a secret joy That sometimes burst its bounds And filled her voice and lilted in her laughter." Not to worry about the future seemed to be I.eona's psychological theory, though she never failed to prepare the morrow's lessons, She was one of our wittiest classmates and kept her classes in Hstitchesf' There was never any danger that "all work and no play" would make her a dull girl, yet you will note her name high among the Upper Fourth. Leona was quite in her element in the role of the French maid in the Sophomore French Play, and played in the Orchestra II and III. She was also on the candy committee for "Merton of the Movies" and "The Belle of Barcelona" IV. Lucy BERNICE COLLINS "O tulip will walk a mile with me Along lifcfr merry way?" Isn't Lucy just the one you'd pick to walk that mile? She has certainly been a true friend to all of us. If you were searching for good company, you'd seek Lucy. VVe remember her perky little cap and apron llitting around at the Priscilla. She has quite a list of activities, too, as you may note from the following: Hockey II, Junior Prom Com- mittee III, "Two Vagabondsn III, "Belle of Barcelona" IV. Lucy hasn't decided on her future work as yet, but whatever it is, we Wish her all possible success in her undertak- ings, TUSITALA ELMER NVILKES COREY K'Mi1'lP is the .rfrvnglh fo conquer." "Pete" was one of the students who might be called a hustler. Not everyone knows that he drove over from Brookline every morning to attend school. Snow or mud made no difference, he was usually in his room when his classmates came straggling in. He worked in Brookline afternoons. Handi- capped as he was by these circumstances, he still could always be relied on to have his homework done. He has the characteristics that will make him succeed in life-among others, perseverance. We wish you the best of luck, "I'ete." MARTHA Doizoruv CLIRRAN "Politcm'r.r is to do and say The kindesf filing in the lez'11dv.rf rvtlyf' So we found Martha, always gracious and thoughtful. We shall never forget that smile with which she greeted us. VVe invariably found her willing to help when there were things to be done, for instance, giving her ser- vice on committees or selling candy at a play. Martha was one of our sweetly dignified girls with her poise and gracious manner. "Miss Bob VVhite" I, "l'inafore" II, Dramatics Clul' IV, Press Club IV, Class Costume Committee IV, Candy Committee "The Belle of Barce- lona" IV, Property Committee "Merton of the Movies" IV, Dramatic VX'riteup and Para- grapher Tusifavla IV. BEATRICE Snerzwoon CURRU1. "Consiste11ry, thou a-rt cz jewel." Beatrice surely knows how to make friendsg perhaps it is because of her quiet and amiable manner. She and Barbara surely did love to chat. She was a Drill Leader I, and played in the Orchestra II, III. Her excellent con- tributions to the Tattlcr were always enjoyed. We all remember her as a pretty Hollywood extra in "Merton of the Movies" IV, and as having served on the Candy Committee at "The Belle of Barcelona" IV. She not only looked into the future as a Class Prophet, but also wrote Turilala baragraphs. TUSITALA LUCILLE DANE "Tl1vw'.s' zizixrliief in her roguixh grin." "Lou" is another of our peppy classmates. A party wasn't a party without her. VVher- ever "Lou" was seen, "Bus" was, or maybe someone else. 'lLoul' has quite a list of activ- ities. Carefully note the following: A. A. Candy Committee I, Ring Committee II, Lunch Counter IV, Candy Committee Senior Play IV, Senior 'Costume Committee IV. We'll always remember her glorious auburn hair. jAMi-:s NY. CCHESNULEVICHQ DAVIS "l'Vlzy take life seriously- You'll viewer get out of it alive." "Jimmy" was one of our finest boys. Oh, so quiet and so good- yes, he was not. VVe can remember "jimmy" and "Danny" racing around Room 7a. just two unusual boys having some fun. Do you know that for such a little fellow "jimmy" shone with our ladies? VVe guess it was the smile,-at least it made Anne forgive him for all the pranks he played on her. Baseball II, III, IV, French Play II, Tattler reporter III, Senior Play Prompter, Basketball IV, Lunch Counter IV, Athletic Editor Tatflvr IV, Ticket Committee A. A. Play IV, Upper Fourth IV, Athletic Vkriteup, Turifala IV. DANIEL CHARLES DEGASIS "Form, features, intellect LVEYZ such as might at once Command and 'Lum the hearts of all." "Danny""was another football and track star. How he could hit that line, and how he could toss the javelin was "Nobody's busi- ness." Did you know that he holds the state record for the javelin throw? Aside from shining brilliantly in athletics, he placed Fourth in the Upper Fourth. No one can say that "Danny" was quiet and retiring, for when he was not yelling signals, he was keep- ing us in an uproar with his witty remarks. VVe hear that he is headed towards Dart- mouth. Good luck, "Danny," and be to the Big Green what you were to the Purple. Football II, III, IVg Track II, III, IV, Traffic Ofhcer III, "Merton of the Movies" IVQ Lunch Counter IV. V TUSITALA Auce FRANCES IDI-IF-MARAIS "A pal to all, and a grand good sport." Alice surely has a list of activities to her credit-and personality plus! Can she skate? -can she swim?-just see for yourself! At recess the group at her counter resembled a "bread line," there was such a queue of hungry seniors and underclassmen. This is how she helped N. H. S.: Basketball I, Candy Committee, "Pinafore" Il, Press Club III, Class Costume Committee IV, Lunch Counter IV. ADAM EDWARD Dot:AN "Few things arcimf1o.v.vible to diligvizrv and skill." "Eddie" was one of the most likable fel- lows in the class, The fact that he was on the Upper Fourth speaks for his standing in his studies. "Eddie" was a Class Book Para- grapher, and not only helped write the book, but helped print it as well-thanks to his position at Cole's. Monday nights, you could find "Eddie" at the Armory with his squad of "Pill-rollers." Corporal "Eddie" was a great favorite with the ladies, but if you were to read that last sentence before him, he would blush most beautifully. His activities include Drill Leader I, Ilg and "husher" at "Merton at the Movies." NVILLIAM JOHN Doscimvicn "A little noitxerise now andtthen Is relislzed by the best of men." "Bill" is blessed CPD with curly hair-the kind that simply will not "slick" down, Often, after he had all the tangles combed out, some rude little girl would rumple it all up again. Then, watch out. "Bill" was a hard worker, in school and out. Afternoons he worked first in a local theatre, and then in a printing shop. He was often seen at dances, however, in Lowell especially. His activities were Hockey I, Football I and II, Baseball I and II, Golf II, Basketball III. TUSITALA ROBERT HENRY DOWNEY "In his own quiet and diligent 'way He accomplished his task day after day." "Bob" took life seriously, and seemed quiet until one became acquainted with him. He was a. real "pal" to his friends, always thoughtful of the "other fellow." He worked afternoons and Saturdaysg therefore his place on the Upper Fourth is sufficient proof of his industry and earnestness. He served on the Ticket Committee for Senior Play IV, and was Baseball Manager IV. ALBINA MARION DUBLOW "An amiable girl of very good abilities." "Sukey" was very popular with her class- mates, and was noted for her display of school spirit at the games. She could be seen every morning in a front seat of Room 5 studying her history or-what have you? She was always busy, as can be seen from her numerous activities: Basketball Team lg Tattler Reporter I, II, Girls' Hockey Team Ilg Drill Leader Il, IVQ Cheer Leader IVQ A. A. Play Candy Committee IV, and Class Costume Committee IV. PHILIP DUBOIS "Here only weak Against the charm of beanty's powerful glanref' "Flip", alias "Phil", was a professed "Woman-hater" during his first three years at Nashua High. VVe understand that "she" has something to do with changing his attitude during his Senior year. "Phil" worked after- noons with a civil engineer, but he managed to earn good marks in spite of his labors. He is one who, when he gains a friend, keeps him for good. He was on the Track Squad I and II, and an usher at the Senior Play, "Merton of the Movies." TUSITALA LUCY ANNA FARMER "In the mlm light of mild plziloxofvhyf' Calmness and mildness were Luey's out- standing qualities, and she was philosophical over the illness which when she was a junior forced her to leave school for a year. Vllhen she re-entered as a member of 1929, we gladly greeted a shy classmate who thought before she spoke, and went about her own affairs serenely and independently. Not a few dis- covered her capacity for true friendship, nevertheless. FRANCIS CHARLES FARRI-:LL HTIIFVL' is 710 low lost,-tomorrow aliuuyr comes." Francis is our class counterpart of Will Rogers. He never took life seriously, but was a happy-go-lucky fellow. He was a natural, fun-loving boy whose humorous themes and sayings won for him the dis- tinction of being chosen a Class Paragrapher. Francis played Baseball for the Purple Ill and IV, played Hockey II, and was an usher at the Senior Play. Be sure to keep on the pleasant side of life, and you will succeed. NAsoN WITHERELL F1':ssr:Nnl4:N "Education is rzeressary to life." "Lefty" was very popular with his pals in Room 5. During his first three years at school he was rather quiet and reserved, but the spirit of fun and happiness in the class soon reached him Senior year. "Lefty" traveled forty miles a day to be educated, and was seldom late. Some of us traveled a mile and arrived late every morning. VVith that much ambition to start him on his way in life, we know he will succeed in whatever he undertakes. T USITALA PAULINE LLEWELLYN FIFIELD "A quiet tongue .rltotvs at twist' head." Dark-haired and quiet was Pauline, but, when "discovered", a true Dal. She believed that "Kodak preserves the story," for she was always bringing to class snapshots in a variety of outdoor poses. Pauline was one of the lucky ones who was called up front when the Upper Fourth was read. She once drew an attractive cover for the Tatfler, and was, in fact, one of our coming artists. Viho knows, she may be a second Raphael! Lots of luck, Pauline! HANNAH FLETCHER "Those eyes-the bliiext of Iliirzys gr0yJ" Another fair-haired demoiselle and very popular. Remember when she wrote a poem which had a tall, young man with a dark brown suit as its hero? We're still trying to find out who that young man is. VVe suspect Hannah had a habit of doing her home-work late at night, because she used to reach school just with the last bell. That she displayed her abilities along many lines once she arrived here is shown by the following list: Tatfler Reporter I, Civics Club I, Drill Leader I, Il, III, Orchestra II, III, IV, Mandolin Club III, IV, Junior Dramatics Club Play, junior Prom Committee, Dramatics Club III, IV, Press Club IV, "Merton of the Movies" IV, Meri- den Parade CDemure Hower bearer? IV, Up- per Fourth, Associate Tusitala Editor IV, Class Prophet. LILLIAN REBECCA FLETCHER "Sometimes fm filled with inspiration IVhich I delight to put in versef' "Beccy" was one of our poetically inclined members, and a natural choice for our Class Poet. How we loved to read her poems in the Tattler! "Beccy" was also an actress, displaying her talent as "Flips" Montague, the heroine of "Merton of the Movies." Her fondness for the VVest was one Characteristic which fitted her to play so well the part of that breezy young lady. Remember her "Everything all jake, trouper?" Untroubled by temperament despite these talents, she en- joyed an industrious, successful four years with us as the following list testifies: Or- chestra II, III, IV fHow she played that celloll, Drill Leader I, III, Cheer Leader I, Meriden Flower Girl IV, School Notes Edi- tor Tattler IV, Upper Fourth. TUSITALA DOROTHY MARGARET FOSDICK "Praise from a friend, or censure from a foe, Are lost on hearers that our merits lm0'zu.', "Dot" is one of those girls who just to spite the Paragrapher didn't make herself conspicuous. But her friends all knew her many merits, and she had no foes to censure her. All of us, in fact, knew "Dot" as a quiet and reliable person whose presence on Upper Fourth was a foregone conclusion. She was on the Candy Committee of "Two Vagabonds" III and of "The Belle of Barce- lona" IV. Also she helped feed the hungry mouths at Lunch Counter IV. Romziucx PAUL FRASER "His hair, his voice, his looks, and honest soul Speak all so movingly in his behalf I dare not trust myself to hear him talk." Behold, we have beauty and modesty per- sonified in "R0ddy." His curls and smiles go consistently together. He was conspicuous for his inconspicuousness. His blush, how- ever, attracted the females like a loadstone, though he was too bashful to bother with them. Never in a hurry, he always wanted to keep in the background-that is, until mis- chief was to be done, and then, we would Hnd "Roddy" at the bottom of the pile. He was out for Baseball I and II. EDWARD josEPH GAFFNEY "It is the tranquil people 'who accomplish most." I "Ted" was the most tranquil and reserved fellow in the class, but we suspect his quiet powers of observation and whimsical humor furnished him much private amusement. There was no doubt that he had a keen imagination and real. literary ability. For all his noticeable silence, he was proficient in his studies, and a faithful performer of any task given him. He was a member of Debating Club IV, and an usher at "Merton of the Movies." TUSITALA SELMA E. GATZ "Perxonality is a great charm." "Personality Plus" is the book of which Selma reminds all of us. Her alertness, her school spirit, and the soft charm of her speech Won the hearts of all her classmates. As our Vice-President Junior Year, she cer- tainly carried her office well. Here are some more of Selma's activities: Basketball I, "Pinafore" II, "Two Vagabondsn III, Tattler Reporter, Lunch Counter, Cheer Leader, Property Committee of "Merton of the Movies," Drill Leader IV. LAWRENCE GAUTHIER "Far may we search before we find A heart so manly and so kind." Although Lawrence, or "Ray," as he was often times called, was not one of our largest athletes in stature, he was by all means one of our best, and a great asset to our basket- ball team. We also hear that he is an enthusi- astic and successful golfer. We missed him the last half of Junior year, and were glad when September brought him back to gradu- ate with us. His energetic walk was indica- tive of his speed and agility on the basketball floor, and his mind was not less alert and active. A clean-cut, upstanding chap whom we're all glad to have known! Baseball Ssvuad II, IV, Basketball Squad II, Team II1, I . NATALIE GAUTHIER "Thur radiant from the circling throng she broke And thus with girlish modesty she spoke." Natalie has one of Nature's greatest gifts: that of making friends and keeping them. Perhaps it's her smile, perhaps it's her jolly words, and perhaps it's just the sunshine in her that keeps peeping out. Despite the in- terruption in her high school career caused by her temporary removal from town Junior year, she filled a large place in the class. VVitness her activities as evidences of her vitality: Basketball Captain I, liield Hockey Manager II, Senior Costume Committee IV, Associate Editor Tnsitala IV. TUSITALA JOHN ROBERT GIBSON "lVhate'Uer is popular deserves attention." So let us give John the best of attention here. This popular young business man found favor with classmates of both sexes, and was an outstanding leader in many activi- ties. His rosy outlook on everything made him a bright companion. His identifier was his loud "Haw-Haw" which erupted many a time on hearing a good joke or giving some- body the "razz berry." Instead of uselessly trying to picture John to you, we'll let you form your opinions from the following: President Civics Club Ig Debating II, Illg Dramatics Club Illg "Two Vagabondsn Illg junior Prom Committeeg Tattler Circulation Manager IVQ Senior Costume Committee IV. STEPHEN GILBODY "Greatness knows itself" We expect great things of Stephen, and by the way, he wasn't so small himself. He was one of the best known and best liked mem- bers of the class. His attitude toward every- one and everything was carefree and friendly. Besides being a member of the Upper Fourth, he used his ample ability in many school activities. Let them speak for themselves: Debating II, III, IVQ Tattler Stall Illg Dramatics Club III. He also played a lead- ing part in "Merton of the Movies" with great success, and did the Rip Van Winkle act to look into our futures as Class Prophet. EUNICE GOODMAN "Easily pleasedg her loud long laugh sincere." Eunice could always be seen with a smile for everybody. What is this we hear about a birthday gift for someone? She was a member of the Field Hockey Team II, and an interested member of the Dramatics Club IV. She was in the chorus of "The Belle of Barcelona" IV and served on the Senior Play Candy Committee. TUSITALA ANNE LILLIAN GORDON "Let other hours be set apart for bu.rine.rs." Anne looks very saintly as she walks along the halls. We can appreciate Scott's Rebecca when we know her. She always was as neat as a pin, and her hair was the envy of many of her classmates. She is a little old- fashioned-still has a haircut-but then, she must "keep that school-girl appearance." Anne liked athletics and, no doubt, wished some preceding class had left in its last will and testament a "gym." Anne played Basketball I, II, and Field Hockey II. Her last two years, her afternoon hours were set apart for making practical application of her Business Training. ROBERT FREDERICK GRIFEITH 'tF0r deft though vanquished, he could argue .rtil ." "Bob" was one of our busiest and most popular boys. Who of us can ever forget "Merton," the part he played with such pro- fessional skill? His liking for debating showed itself in various forms, as Mr. Kempton might affirm. On a certain occa- sion, "Bob," after reading "Einstein's Theory," tried, for a whole week without success, to get Mr. Kempton to commit himself on the "fourth dimension." Recognizing this ability to speak well, we chose him for our orator. Another prominent activity was "Bob's" Tat- ller work-Assistant Athletic Editor III and Associate Editor--Johnny Fly-IV. His other activities make an imposing list: Assembly Programs II, III, IVQ Track I, IIQ French Play II, President Sophomore-Freshman Debating Club Hg Dramatics Club IIIg Drill Leader I, IIIQ Debating Club III, President IV: "The Two Vagabonds" IIIQ Cheer Leader lVg Upper Fourth. ALFRED GUIMOND t'Lu.vty, young, and rheerly drawing breath." "King" believed in working and playing hard. Afternoons and many evenings he worked with his brothers at his hobby of re- pairing cars. Still, he always managed to plan his time so that he could go to dances. It would have seemed strange indeed not to see him at all the local dances, but stranger still if he had not escorted some blushing maiden home after the dance. His activities were: Baseball I and II, Football II, Trafhc Otiicer III, Usher Senior Play IV. TUSITALA LILLIAN El.1zAnETH HAMl.!N "IIN eyes are homes of .filent prayer." It was rumored that "Lil" attended every footlmall game and that for those "eyes of silent prayer," the one would play his hard- est. Naturally Nashua won the games. Lillian knew her onions. She used to write many notes, "always to girls," it seems. NX'e wonder if occasionally her pen happened to slip and write a lmoy's name,-by mistake, of course. "Lil" was one of our all 'round high school girls. Her lessons were good at times, hut others4well, we all make mis- takes. Besides, the following took some of her time: Sophomore Ring Committee ll, Home Economics Clulu II, lll, IV, Class Cos- tume Committee IV, Class Paragrapher IV, Tneo Lucu.LE HARMIJN "Laugh and the world laughx with you, lI'1'vfv and you 'weep alone." Our quotation fits Lucille to perfection. She always received a smile from everyone she greeted, and never lacked companionship. Remember how she'd never let anyone she knew get hy her without saying "I-Iello"? She'll make friends quickly, no riatter where she may lie. Lucille was one of the girls on the Candy Committee for hoth the "Two Vagalmondsn III and the Senior Play IV. IYIADELI NE IXIARY I'IAR'I'li "ll'l10 mi.1"d renxou with plvaxztfrv And wzxdom wth mzrfl1." More of an onlooker than a participant, quietness was one of IXladeline's most appar- ent characteristics. It seemed to some of us that not even an earthquake could shake her from her calmness, yet her occasional air of formality was lmelied by her wistful smile. Madeline did not join us until her Sophomore year, when her family moved to Nashua. She was in the cast of "The Two Vagalaondsu III, and was a member of Home Economics Club IV TUSITALA LILLIAN KIORTON I'IA5EL'l'0N ",S'l1e haw a bright and healthy mindg Her cheek with health and beauty glows." "Lil" is one of those studious girls who comes from Hudson. She has many friends both there and in Nashua, for her conscien- tiousness about lessons did not detract from the charm of her pretty smile and dimples. She was a charming flower girl in "The Belle of Barcelona" IV, but her work at Benson's Animal Farm prevented her from entering many school activities. VVESLEY EA'roN HAYN1-:s "Wave found lf!'e.vley always ready Honest, loyal, square, and steady." "VVes" took a big "bite" of school activities and digested them with ease. His activities did not interfere wi.h school work, for he came near the top when the Upper Fourth was announced. Have you ever asked him where he got his military carriage? He has been acting as a "non-com." in the famous Medical Detachment. His activities are almost too many to list: Track II, Tattler Reporter II, III, IV, junior Prom Commit- tee III, "The Two Vagabondsu III, Football IV, Press Club IV, "Merton of the Movies" IV, "The Belle of Barcelona" IV, Chow he hated to give up that high silk hatlb and as a crowning glory, Editor of Tusitala. ETHEI. MAY Homin "Her laugh was 'verily a gigglefu Ethel was always giggling at something or other. For all her shyness and quietness, she certainly was an optimist. Her gay laugh prompted many others in Room 5, and else- where. Ethel had a large circle of friends because of her cheery manner and pleasing way. She was a member of the Home Eco- nomics Club II, III, and IV, and played Hockey II. She speaks of training in the profession of nursing. We hope you are sue- cessful in your undertaking, Ethel. TUSITALA HAZHI. Gauricouie Joi-1 NSUN "A .vzveet girl was she, Ana' iz good friend lo all." Hazel was one of those sympathetic, under- standing girls with whom one always felt "at home." She had a well-developed sense of humor-n'r.rl-re-f1a.v, Hazel? Although study- ing was not her pet hobby, she usually knew her lessons well. She was on the Candy Committee "The Two Vagabonds" III, and a Paragrapher for the Class Book IV. IXIARJORIE ELAINE JOH NSON "Youth F0115 for plea.vure,' pleasure falls for love." Marjorie was one of those dainty little girls who fluttered around the class rooms spread- ing sunshine. VYherever she was, there happi- ness was sure to be. We know that Marjorie enjoyed her high school days, and hope she will find just as much pleasure in her later life. She was a member of Orchestra Il, Ill , Hockey Team Il, and was a Press Club Re- porter Ill. KASMIR B. JONES "He keeps his teiizfvffvfd mind, serene and pure, And e'U'ry passion aptly harmonised Amid a jarring world." Kasmir was a serene sort of fellow, whose main characteristics were quietness and tran- quility. He always looked after his own busi- ness and was content to let the others do the talking. He was thoughtful and by no means lacked imagination. Vide are sure that his pluck and grit will carry him through to success in the military career to which he aspires. He was an usher at the Senior Play. TUSITALA JULIA IXIARION KAZI.tJSKAS "My mother xayx I muxt not ffaxx Too near that gla.v.v,' .flip ix afraid tlzat I 'will sep A little Ivitrlz that loolex like me." Did Olll' secretary have to look in a glass to reveal her charms? Not if she understood the long and lingering glances of the opposite sex. She did well in her studies in spite of being handicapped by "attention" and blushes. She certainly was a "jewel" to her class, as she helped in the following activities: Basket- ball Team I, Drill Leader II and III, Tattler Reporter II and III, "Bob VVhite" I, Ring Committee II, Secretary of Home Economics Club ll, junior Prom Decoration Committee III, Candy Committee III, Class Costume Committee IV, best of all, she was the Secre- tary of the Class in '29, and on the Upper Fourth. DOROTHY Kussrm "I ran but add one little pearl To all the gems about thee scattered, And .ray again, sweet, artless girl, That all the fvoetx have not flattered." "Dot" was a sweet picture of a girl with her black hair and big black eyes. VN'e remember how those eyes twinkled when she smiled, and how that short curly hair about her forehead required frequent managing. "Dot" was one of the busy girls in Miss I3rown's talkative class. Indeed, she and Leona were the "sparks" of the French class. NVQ can remember them as always being to- gether and joyfully pestering each other. Physical Leader Ig Orchestra II, IIIg Candy Committee A. A. Play IV. JASON ToLLEs K1MlsALI.

His activities include "Two Vagas bonds" III, "Merton of the Movies" IV-Oh, Elmer, that cane! Jason intends to enter the University of New Hampshire next fall. Best o' luck, Jason.

She is refreshing, and if there are gray skies, she will make them rainlvow-hued lmy her overflowing vitality. She can always hc depended upon to tell a new joke, or give a merry description of her latest conquest, to relieve the monotony of everyday life. She is happy-go-lucky, and does only that which she has to, then goes ahout pleasing herself. She will he rememlvered as the gayest of the gayg a girl who should have stayed in the fairy hook, and not have come to earth to concoct mischief. .ANNIE lXlARIAN Kunzivm "For f1l'ZL'tlj'.Y in her r'3'v.r llzerc' wax a light Ax llmztglz .rllv kept a xerrvt nom' might g11v.r.v," Annie, like many others in our class, took life on thc hright side and was consequently a pleasing and cheerful companion. She has said she would like to see herself starting her high school days over again. What better evidence of loyalty to N. H. S. could anyone ask? Ricnmm ALFRIQD LAMARCHP: "Do not nvgler! I0 level? your .shoes fvolixlwd. You ran rlnnv on one and ax wail ax on the other." "Dick" was the outstanding "sheik" of Room 5. Each morning he could he seen industriously shining his shoes for an excur- sion to the third floor-a noisy one, for his coming was always heralded hy those clatter- ing heels. We should like to know what or who the attraction was on the upper deck. Vlith all that, he was a good student and stood high in the esteem of his,fellow-class- mates. He was a Tattler reporter I and IV.

He gained much popularity with his classmates, despite his quietness-and socially he always managed to hold his own. Hut do not misjudge him, because he did study occasionally. There always seemed to he plenty of lady friends willing to keep him in training, hut his indifference drove them away. VVe dare not add morel Loen.i.ia Ermoic LivvoiN'1'1a "ll'l1z1f .9110 rfvvx tei.vt'ly ix 'well a'ur1t'." Lucille was a happy-go-lucky girl who lmy her ready greetings won many friends. She was very popular among the girls who knew her lmest. One way her wisdom showed was in her well-done history lessons. Her school activities were the following: Home Eco- nomics Cluh ll, lll, lV, and Class Book Paragrapher. Ntith her bright smile and care- free way, we are sure she will lie successful in years to come. TUSITALA VVILLIAM S, LAW "Him for llxt' .rtzcdious xlzade Ama' nufzm' fw'm'd." Men, just ordinary men, with a lmody, a hit of lvrain, and power ol speech are horn every minuteg hut the really illustrious ones, highly intellectual and of sterling character, are horn at rare intervals,-"Bill" is one. Wiith such qualities he is hound to he a leader of men. "Bill" was second on the Upper Fourth, yet he found time enough to do stage work at "Merton of the Movies" and "Belle ol' liar- celona" lY, and to take care of tickets for the junior Dance lll.

And he used to call these walks of his "treats to the under- classmenf' "lirnie's" the kind of a fellow the poets mean when they say, "He cometh unto you with a tale." He takes his chemis- try seriously, and since he looks well in a smock, he may he expected to lvecome a famous chemist. Usher at Graduation lllg Usher at Senior Play Ill, IVg Orchestra IV. TUSITALA GENEVA LENA LEDoux "'Ti.r true, this budding miss is very' charm- ing." Room 5 was lucky to have "Ramona" as one of its members. One of her hobbies despite her Spanish nickname, is skating- and how she can glide over the ice. She dis- tinguished herself in her Sophomore year bg winning the first prize in a Home Economics Meat Contest. She was a member of the Home Economics Club ll, Ill, IV and Treas- urer III. She was also on the Field Hockey Team Il. GERTRUDE P. LESIEUR "Don't be 'ronsistcntf but be simply true." "Gertiel' was really a member of '28, but left in her Junior year, and came back and graduated with us. She showed her good taste, we agree! The knowledge she showed in matters pertaining to law makes us wonder if she will not be hanging out her shingle soon. "Gertie" was Vice-President of the Home Economics Club ll, IH. VVhat about "her engineer"? H'm, ask her! PAUL ROGER LEVESQUE "Si1eurc is golden." "Shorty" is small in stature but big in the hearts of his fellow classmates. He is a quiet, conservative youth and usually keeps all his plans to himself. Paul has recently completed an Earle Liederman course and is an ardent student of physical culture. In fact, one of his ambitions is to become a health instructor. This serious-minded, well- meaning young man should find success well within his reach. He helped between scenes at "Merton of the Movies." TUSITALA EDNA lllAY L1N11QU1sT "Let joy, lemperanfe, and repose Slam the door in the dortoriv nose." NX'e have no fears that smiling Edna will have to slam that door, so healthfully serene is she. The boyish figure which is still the craze did not worry her, for she was en- dowed with it. Her friends found her fair and square. Her quiet efficiency in commer- cial work augured that she will make a good secretary. The girls of Room 2 always re- ceived their Tatilerr promptly, for Edna was an alert and interested Reporter, lV. LUCY TXIADELINE LUCIEN "Her 'words are trusty heralds to her mind." Lucy's words are never doubtful, she says what she knows and never bluffs. No wonder that her classmates and teachers have confi- dence in her! Quiet and serene and with an ever-ready smile, she makes friends with all. The gods have given her another virtue, sympathy. Besides these inward graces, she is pretty-golden haired and blue-eyed-and has that peaches and cream complexion. These are some of the reasons, no doubt, that she plays havoc with the hearts of dark- haired young men. She has done her bit, as one may see from the list: Physical Leader l, ll, llI, lVg Basketball I, Senior Play Ticket Committee lVg A. A. Play Ticket Com- mittee lVg Upper Fourth. JULIA HELEN LYCETT12 "Why should I blush to own my low?" julia joined us our Sophomore year, and she surely has been a live-wire, as all will testify. She possesses a remarkable ability to keep any classroom awake with questions. 'Mem- ber how she doted on "contracts" in Law? She is musically inclined and intends to con- tinue her study of music after leaving N. H. S. "Gilles Clark," Julia. These were her activities: "H. M. S.

Our big bashful boy was president of the Junior class and a football star. "VVin- nie" was liked by every one, especially the girls. And say, didn't he just love to be kidded about thatl He would always grin and blush. But "Winnie" wasn't bashful all the time. Despite plenty of outside activity, he kept Upper Fourth grade in his studies. It's a secret-"Winnie" spent Tuesday even- ings under Mr. CCaptainD Lawrence's mili- tary eye at the Armory, We hear he's a good soldier.

He was half of every football gameg the only boy who could make the student body so hoarse they couldn't speak for two days.

HELEN ANNA TWCDONALD "Joy .fparkled in her dark eyes like a gem." Helen was one of the most care-free, happy, joy-loving girls in the class, never appearing to have any Worries. It she did, they were always covered up with 3 smile. ln spite of her motto, "There's plenty of time. What's your hurry?" her school days were well oc- cupied, as is shown by her activities: Drill Leader Hg Hockey II, "H, M. S. Pinafore" Ill, "The Belle of Barcelona" IV.

AIUNTON "lf laughter ix l'0Hfllg1:01tA', Just .Hand amd rafrh his grin," Did you ever notice "Pete" at the fruit store on VVest Pearl Street afternoons selling bananas by the yard and oranges by guess? Peter was a jolly good scout with a cheery "Hello" for everyone he met. His comments and questions in history caused many a grin. He was always in evidence at the school dances and helped the Senior Play by acting as usher. TUSITALA n-it ,l.. JOHN RUSSELL NAsH "Going dorm?" This was what you'd hear when John drove up to the curb in his "Chrysler," as you, who were not fortunate enough to have a car, trudged down the street. He was very generous with his-rather, his father's car. Always good-natured and easy-going, he de- lighted in being Mr, Kempton's messenger during school hours. John played Basketball I, H, IH, IV and was on the Football Squad Il, HI, IV. He talks of entering Georgetown. lXlURIEL BERTHA NASH "A truer, nobler, truxiier heart, More lozfirzg or more loyal, never beat." Muriel was another of the young maidens of our class who were possessed of quiet and retiring natures. Despite her occasional dreaminess, she had the ability to think things out for herself. Muriel was a very apt student of the violin, and played in the or- chestra during her Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years. She also took part in HH. M. S. Pinatoref' the Athletic Association play of her Sophomore year. RUSSELL Hom Noyes f'l'l"hlle the used key is always bright." And sure enough, there's no danger of "Rusty's" getting rusty. He has always been a cheerful cherub. lt appears that he is des- tined to the fate of being an author, particu- larly along the line of "snappy stuff." ln fact, most of his spare time is devoted to studying the fair sex in search of material, This is his excuse for being out with them all hours of day and night. His ultra-collegiate- ness proved a great asset in keeping the class in perpetual good humor, as well as his new wisecracks. The ambition of this popular and optimistic student is to see the world. "Rusty" has been Tatfler Reporter IH, Drill Leader Ill, Member of Dramatics Club Ill, on the Stage Committee for the A. A. 'Play HI, and for the Senior Play IV. TUSITALA SADIE Aczmzs O'Bim1N "A smiling fare full of a .rtveet llldijjAt'l'l'l1t'C'.u Sadie, or "Sallie," as she was more com- monly called, was one of our carefree girls, for she never appeared to have a responsibility nor a worry. Nothing ever bothered her. One pastime we know she was fond of, and that was dancing. One ,always found her present at the school dances. She played Basketball I, llg and served on A. A. Candy Committee lll. THOMAS ALMIJN O'Ni:1i. "They well deservfe to lzazw' That know the .rfrongest and szrrvxt way fo get." - "Tom," our serious-minded Class President, was one of the most popular boys in the class. Baseball was his hobby, and he played all four years, captaining the team during the 1929 season. He also earned his letter in Football IV. If you skated at the North Common in the winter, you owe your fun to Tommy, for he made the ice while you slept. Sh, "Tommy's" a soldier, too. His other activi- ties were: Head Usher, "Merton of the Movies," and "Belle of Barcelona" IV, Lunch Counter lVg Class Hockey l, Ill, IV. THELMA LUcn,i.n Oui:i.1.i:'i'Ti-: "True as steely it will bend, but Jzvwr break." Thelma was a friend in need. She had that enviable gift of remembering datcsg in fact, one knew whom to consult when uncertain about many 3 bit of definite information. She was on the Civic Service Committee l, was Press Club Reporter Ill, and her steady eili- ciency in her studies won her a place in the Upper Fourth. All in all, Thelma was a jolly good friend to have, and her giggle was a con- tagious one. She rendered valuable service the last period every day in the capacity of Ollice Girl IV. We wonder what attractions the Public Service Company holds for "Thelm"! TUSITALA ANNE ALBERTA OULTON "Maiden of the laughing eyes." Anne, or "Mercedes," as we have recently learned to eall her, certainly helped to make "The Belle of Barcelona" IV a success. Didn't she look Spanish, though? According to "Pat," we might call her a "flashing senoritaf' This wasn't Anne's only activity, as you may note from this list: Dramatics Club III, IV, Physical Leader II, III, IV, "Pinafore" II, "The Two Vagabondsu Ill, faithful and efficient prompter in "Merton of the Movies" IV, in addition to playing Beulah's trim little maid, and withal, Upper Fourth. NORMAN ELLswoRTH PAGE "And a man makes friends without half try- ing." For indeed Norman, or "Blubber," as he was commonly called, was a friend to every one. And could he bluff? Oh, yes, he was one of our greatest adepts at that art. VVe are looking forward to seeing Norman man- ager of a Woolworth store, for few have decided upon a lifework so definitely as he. He certainly proved his ability at selling tickets for football games, plays,!anything which required tickets! He was a Traffic Officer, Chairman of Ticket Committee Senior Play IV, and on Lunch Counter IV. EL1zAIna'rH PARKS. "Still waters run deep." Elizabeth was one of our quietest friends, but she blossomed forth when the Upper Fourth was read, standing well up in its ranks. She was able in her studies, and we always heard her name when the Honor Roll was read. Her preparation for college was serious and steadfast, and we are sure she will be successful. TUSITALA RUTH PARNELL "Vigorous in all pursuilsf' Ruth was not a member of our class until the fall of 1928, but since then she has been very much in evidence among the twenty- niners. Ruth is vigorous and ambitious, as her extra subjects will testify, and twenty- nine won a valuable addition when she chose to move here from Gloucester. She is quite an authority on things pertaining to the briny deep and-sh-we also hear she has a weak spot for a certain "King" ELizAnE'rH Rosa PARRATT "O your m'eet eyes, your lou' replies!" VVe enjoyed Betty most for her sense of humor and her delightful little giggle. As a Taffler reporter I, she helped to keep the freshmen activitiesiin print. Dancing is her weakness and she surely can step! However interesting she may have found N. H. S., there seemed to be a great outside attraction for her. But now we're growing personal! At "I-I. M. Pinaforeu II she served as a candy girl. PHYLLIS VVRIGHTSON PE.-xcock "Life is not so short but that there is always iime enough for courtesy." And courtesy must be "Phyl's" middle name: or perhaps it is tact. She kept us all walking the ropes, for she is one of the few who has that intangible thing called charm. "Phyl's" ambition is to have a "career," and we feel sure that with her adaptability it won't be long till she careers into something. We shall all remember "Phyl" as blase Beulah Baxter in "Merton of the Movies." The Tattler owes a great deal to her work as Senior Literary Editor. She was, besides, Secretary of the Debating Club IVQ member of the Orchestra Ill, IVg on the Junior Prom Committee, and best of all-third in the Upper Fourth, leading the girls. TUSITALA ELAINE NIARIE PEDERZANI "California or Bust!" Ah, well we know Elaine's pet ambition, and we hope that she will soon attain it. She is one of the few girls endowed with "mil- lion dollar dimples," and, presumably, they are among her assets when dealing with speed cops! She was Tattler Reporter I, and showed her stenographic ability as Secretary of the Tattler IV. She was another deserv- ing student on the Upper Fourth. We hope .r0mr'one gives you a lift to California in his plane, Elaine! VVILFRED PELLETIER "He was a lover of the great outdoors." t'Pelk" was the walking-dictionary of Roorr 5. He even knew some words that Mr Webster forgot, or maybe would not have ir his dictionary. Considering that "Pelk's' pastime was to take a long walk in the coun- try every afternoon, we marvel at the way he found time to do his homework. "Pelle" was an usher at the Senior Play IV, played Hockey III and IV, and was on the Senior Costume Committee and Upper Fourth. But his greatest success was as a Marine in "The Belle of Barcelona" IV. 'To show their ap- preciation, the class of '29 should buy him a pair of roller-skates for those long trips to the country. Joslin-1 iNI1CHAEL PETRowsK1 "Fm young yet-perhaps I will grow." "Joe" was the diminutive joy-boy of Room 5, and his pleasing ways Won him many friends elsewhere, too. I-Ie has hitched his wagon to a star. He believes that you might as well get as much as you can out of life, and there- fore has turned his ambition to being a great lawyer. "joe" was a member of Orchestra II and III, and also showed his talent as an active reporter of the Press Club III. To a care-free, cheerful boy we wish happiness and success. TUSITALA yfgofqo Room: N. Poiiuiaiz "How I low' io rtudvfu r N - mea All work and no play would hav ma.e Roger a dull boy. As he dicln't want to be that, he arranged for plenty of play! He didn't mind coming to school-it was just the studying part. Roger was a good sport and well liked by both sexes. Auburn hair had its attractions for him. VVe expect that he will some day be Nashua's leading furniture dealer. Roger joined our class at the begin- ning of junior year, coming from Assumption College at lNorcester. That year he served as a cheer leader and played in the orchestra. Rolsmvr Hunt-i PREW "You're arrrcdingly polite, And I think it only right To return the compliment." "Bob" was always polite to everybody. Yet he never was stiff because of being thus well- mannered. Didn't he get a lot of fun teasing the girls? From the fact that he got along with them, we know they liked to be teased-- by him. "Bob" heat the girls to first place this year. He very modestly took up the role of valedictorian, and we expect him to make good at Harvard. Ring Committee llg A. A.

NEIL FREDERICK PVTNA M "ll'i.rdouz lu' lzas, and to his felvrloni cozcrageg Tenzper lo Iliaf, and unto all .v11rrv.r.r." Neil was one of our foremost intellectuals- a studious and debonair youth. To apply to him the proverb about "still waters" would be all right, for when he gets going, he's pretty hot. Books presented no ditliculty to him, and his school work was a "gift" as is shown by his place on the Upper Fourth. He was a member of the cast in "The Two Vaga- bonds" Ill, in Press Club IV, and a proper valet in "Merton of the 1Xlovies"lV. VYC shall not be surprised to learn of his appoint- ment as admiral of the U. S. Navy in the future, for we're sure that a 'man with such noteworthy traits is bound to succeed. Till then, Auf Wiedcrselien! TUSITALA FRANK DI-:NN1s liANCOl7R'l' "For zz good fvovfx made ax well ax born." Frank was a clever member of Room 5 who could make up verse with perfect rhythm in less than a second. Some of it was good, and some was-not so good. He was liked by all during his four years with us. His witty sayings and poetical instinct were put to good use as Class Book Paragrapher IV. Vile wish you luck, Frank. lbxiii, HENRY R1MnAcH ':By this fare, Thix teeming brow of j'lLXll!'t', did he -win The hearts of all that he did angle for." Originally from Ponemah, a little unfor- tunate maybe, but what's the use, when we have for consideration a great man? Only a great man in more ways than one could stand that nine-mile trip each morning and still make the Upper Fourth. Paul is a jovial fellow, and like the proverbial gentleman, prefers blondes. VYe think his coat of arms must be a "spat, rampant." He was on the Football Squad I, Baseball Squad l, Debating Club Il, and Upper Fourth, Ronekr ErzcsLEsToN Rooms "Y0u'd have known lzirm by the nzerrimenf That sfwarleled in his eyes." VVho ever saw "Bob" without that infectious grin? He was known for his humor and witty remarks, also for his roving nature, since he was always planning some trip around the world in a "Lizzie," During his Sophomore year, when he left us for a time, we hear that he reached Hollywood. Drama- tics Club lll, "The Two Vagabondsn Ill, "The Belle of Barcelona" IV, Chairman Prop- erty Committee Senior Play lV. By the way, a colander, and a bag of rice, and "Bob," pro- duced the back-scene rainstorm in "Merton" TUSITALA IQAYMOND F. Roy "An artist tear he, In thought, word, and deed." "Ray" didn't care much for Cirrro, Virgil, or any ot those weighty volumes, hut he de- lighted in drawing and painting, a fact made obvious lxy the many original and interesting cuts and posters he contributed to the Tattlrr, to advertise school events, and provide at- mosphere for the stage sets of "Merton of the Movies." VVQ are also used to seeing his signature on ads and posters all over town. And in addition we hear he's a radio manu- facturer and automobile mechanic. Tatller Reporter II, IV, Art Editor II, Assistant Exchange Iiditor III, Property Committee Senior Play IVQ Upper Ifourth. JOHN A. KRONDONISD RYAN "For the low of lauglzirr, hinder nut the humor of his dvxiguf' "johnny" was one of our assiduous mem- bers, for when he was not carrying out some important duty connected with a position he held, or rehearsing for one of our plays, he was studying energetically. "johnny" was an actor, writer, and musician. His activities were many: A'I'inafore" II, Freshman-Sophtv more Debating Cluln II, junior Dance Coni- mittee III, "The Two Vagalmontlsn IIIg Ilram- atics Clulm III, IV, Orchestra Lilmrarian and representative at Parents' IJ'ay Assemlwly IV, Tuxilziltz paragrapher IV, "Merton ol' the Movies" IV, Author of Class NN'ilI.

I.oi'isi3 -IKYSIQPHINI-1 SHAt'KroR11 ".-I .voft eoirr be.rfu'alr.v iz gentle manner." Louise was just as quiet as she could lie. In spite of-or perhaps because of-this, shc was well-liked lry all her classmates. She did not join us until junior year when she came here to live. I.ouise sold candy at the "Belle of Barcelona." IV and Senior I'lay IV. TUSITALA lXln,'roN SHARPP1 "-For llv'.v zz jolly good felluruf' Milton was rather quiet, but liked by his fellow-students for his well-developed sense of humor. There was no doubt of his ability to master his studies,-when he applied him- self. Outside of school, his interest centered upon baseball and tennis. Milton was a valuable member of the Property Committee for "Merton of the Movies." Mirnuen ETHEL SHUNAMAN "A mind like hers Glows like a rpark upon a wintry hearth." Mildred seemed shy at first. Then one day we fairly had to hold on to our seats, for while the rest of us "coming young lawyers" were wondering what the "Big lawyer" was taking about, Mildred stood up and gave her opinion. It was a good one, to be sure, for she was always quick on the uptake, Mildred was a member of the chorus of the "Belle of Barcelona." Also, of course, she was on the Upper Fourth. NlARY RUTH SKLAT "Free from dervif lzer fare, and fully as free her heart." There was never a more ideal secretary than Mary. Her stately walk, her deliberate words, and her quiet manner will surely help her to success in her chosen profession. She is reserved, and to be her friend, one has to break through that shell of reserve, or be no friend at all. She can't be bothered with triflesg one has to give her facts. She has a keen mind, which placed her securely on Upper Fourth. She will not sugar-coat any- thing she may have to say, a quality which only increases her likableness. She has taken part in many school activities, namely: Basket- ball I, President of Civics Club I, Home Economics Club H, Lunch Counter IV, A. A. Candy Committee IV. TUSITALA xQl ARTHUR KTARTIN SMITH "His stature 'wax that of l,im'0In," Arthur also had other qualities, such as perseverance, that would remind one of honest "Abe" His store of history facts seemed to be everlasting. He was also adept in all mechanical work, and consequently a valued worker on stage committees: Decora- tion Committee, Junior Prom lllg Refresh- ment Committee, Junior Prom lllg Lighting Expert, "The Two Vagabonds" lllg Stage Committee, Senior l'lay IV. 1JoR1s VVILLIA M s S M :TH "Hut than lzvr fare, .Yo .fa'er'f, yet so arrli, .ro full of 'nizrflzf' Doris, one of our Hudsonites, has been a jolly pal throughout the four years that we have known her. NVQ have seen her grow from a small girl to the demure Senior of the present day. VVe have seen her pretty hair bobbed with some regret, admitting, however, that a bob is becoming to her. Nor could we help noticing that the Hudson air has given her a complexion that could rival any soap advertisement. She can, upon request, sing any popular song desired. She has been in the following activities: Civics Club I, Home Economics Club II, Candy Committee IV, Press Club IV, "Belle of Barcelona" IV. IMELDA RIARJURIIC S M ITH "ll'1'lI, keep me romfany Im! treo years more, Thou .vhall not lenaa' the .raunrl of thine own tongue." "Mel," we'll always remember you as the fair-haired girl whom we couldn't help liking. VN'e can see you now, laughing and talking, always gay and making others happy. Re- member, classmates, how the teachers couldn't be angry with her? All she did was to smile, and they liked her again. That was her charm and personality. And didn't we like her blonde bob? Basketball I, Hockey II, "I'inafore" ll, Candy Committee lll, Prop- erty Committee Senior Play IV, "Belle of Barcelona" IV, Press Club IV, Paragrapher IV, Upper Fourth. TUSITALA R.-xvmonn Fuenixkieic SMITH "No really great man tlzouglzt lzimrvlf xo." "Ray" was one of the most modest and lik- able chaps We ever met. He was faithful in all his work. As for his activities, he was a member of the Hockey Team IV and Usher at the Senior play, He made another record We should like to mention: in all four years at school he was not absent once. "Ray" was another one of those fellows who distin- guished himself by his quietness, yet he met every one in an attractively frank manner. RU'l'H THPllil'1S,'X SMITH "A sweet llff7'Gt'l'i'Z'L7 kind of grave." Ruth came from Pelham, joining us in our Sophomore year, and you may be sure she was a welcome addition. This tall, slight classmate was always pleasant and had a smile for everybody. She was a member of the Home Economics Club ll, and was in the chorus of "The Belle of Barcelona" IV. We are certain she will be successful in anything she undertakes. Hrzknalvr VVILLIAM SNOW ir llix name may be Sziozv But there war nofliiug fold about him," "Herbie" was one of the lively members of our class, ready at any time for a practical joke. lf some morning he arrived in chemis- try beforethe bell had rung, we used to think something was wrong. He was always experimenting, with results which would astonish a'veteran chemist. He was a Tatflvr Reporter I, Assistant Exchange ll, Assistant Personals lll, Personals Editor lV, Usher at the Senior Play, and a member of the Senior Costume Committee. Between times he donned a white jacket and presided behind the counter at the Priscilla. TUSITALA Giaokoia jlxivirzs SousANi-: "A modes! athlete lic, And we 110150 l1e'll rzlfuays be," He was our modest athlete, indeed. Ke- member when, as center on the gridiron, he would open up a space four yards wide through which the baeklield men could gain yardage? George was another young man who didn't fully appreciate the techniealities involved in building Caesar's bridge, but we have a faint suspicion that he was rather fond of learning Shakespeare's quotations! How about it George? Football ll, Ill, IV, Track Squad llg Baseball Squad ll, lll. HPII.EN Doius STAPANON "Steel-true amd blade-straight The great artifirer made our .rvhoolmatrf." "Pinkie" was among the most popular in her class, for one thing because she was always willing to work for her school, and then also because she was so full of good spirits. Her motto is "Life is what you make it," and she invariably makes the most of whatever Dame Fortune brings her. Her artistic talent furnished one of the Tattler covers. In spite of her liveliness and versa- tile interests, in and out of school, she has always done praiseworthy work in her studies, Her activities were as follows: "Miss Bob White" lg Basketball Ig Drill Leader Ig Music Club ll, Candy Girl Ill for the o eretta "Two I7 Vagabondsug Candy Committee for the Senior Play IV. Doius UNA STI-:vuNs "With eye: too expressizfe to be blue And loo lovely 10 be grey." Doris was one of our more quiet girls. No doubt this was due to the fact that she was not with us for the whole four years, and therefore seemed at first a bit dihfident and unacquainted. Those who had the good for- tune of winning her friendship, however, loved her dearly. She came to us from Keene where, we are told, she was very active in Basketball, Dramaties, and the Domestic Arts Club, We remember her for her accurate guessing in Mrs. Sweetser's History Guessing Contests, and for her corridor treks as Office Girl fifth period Senior year. TUSITALA GEORGE RODNEY S'roDDARu, jk. "He is wire who fuller but liitlef' Rodney always assisted in stage decorating and settings, and proved invaluable. He apparently enjoyed working at shop, for a great many of his periods were spent there. Remember his Essex-did you ever see him afternoons when he wasn't driving it? Rod- ney was almost too modest about his own abilities, but we think he will some day startle the world with a new invention. Esrmsiz lX'lAli STONE "She can .ring the saziagenesr out of a bear." Esther was a blonde with light, Huffy hair, blue eyes, and a voice like a nightingale. Her exquisite soprano won her principal parts in "Pinafore" H, "Erminie" IH, and the un- forgettable role of Miss Ayres, the haughty governess, in the "Belle of Barcelona" IV. She was one of the class optimists,-even oral talks had no effect on her sunny dis- position. If "just let a smile be your um- brella," was Esther's motto, then we are sure she never got caught in a sudden shower. THEODORE STYLIANOS "Come and trip it ar you go On the light fantastic toe." "Style" seems to be 3, dancer instinctively- perhaps that accounts for dancing's being his specialty. He has a l'epsodent smile and a good sense of humor. He has a pretty general conception of women, having been the only member "ot the male persuasion" Cahemlj in one of "Pop" Canfield's classes. However, he chose rather sensational current event topics, it you remember,-but a word oi advice, "'l'ecl"4don't believe all you hear. TUSITALA MAiu:ARr:T TXTARY SULLIVAN "A 'zvfnning 'Zt'Hj', ll frimldly .rmilzy In all, a girl quifr tuortli ivliilrf' Although Margaret was very quiet and bashful, she has many friends both, in and out of school. Her best friend, as we all know, was Ethel. Her greatest ambition is to become a nurse. VVe feel absolutely sure that Margaret will make a successful one, for she has all the necessary qualifications. She belonged to Girls' Field Hockey Team llg was a member of Home Economics Club ll, III, IVQ and was a candy girl at Teachers' Play, "Mrs, Bumpstead-Leigh," IYTILDRED Tmlkilsrv Si'i.i.1vAN "An tIff1'lIi'ff'Z'L', dainly lillle fgure, Uucommonly bright brazen i1ve.r 1'4'.vIrd with ziivarify and i11lt'lligrm'i'." ln the summing up of "lXlil's" qualities, we can think of nothing more titting than the above, "Mil" was attractive and tiny, too, and we have not forgotten nor forsaken the old adage, "The best of things come in small parcels." Every now and then her wit and drollness would delight us. "Mil" was on thc- candy committee of both the "l'inafore" ll and "The Two Vag'aboncls" lll. She also served at the Lunch Counter IV, our favorite rendezvous. FRA N K Sziaim K "The world kll0'Zt'A' Hotliiny of its grmztexf men." But we members of the class knew Frank to be one of the ablest of the group, That he was often on the Honor Roll is proof of his attainments. His good work in composi- tion made him one of the Class llaragraphers for "Pop" Cantield's home room. Frank was a likable fellow. VVe'll miss being with him every day. He nonchalantly read a news- paper on the stage during "Merton of the Movies," as the studio door-tender, and donned the brass buttons of a "Son of the U. S, A." in "The Belle of Barcelona" IV. TUSITALA CHARLES LEROY TEBBETTS "The brave deserve the l0z'ely,' Every Tk'0'H'lfZ'1l may be Ivan." VVe had more than one ladies' man in our class, but they had to go some to beat good- looking "Charlie" One asset was his neat- ness and good taste. Perhaps this is the reason he was the first to suggest "frat' jackets for a class costume. VVhat everybody liked about him fthe teachers especiallyj was his fine manners. "Charlie" went out for baseball for two years and has always been athletically inclined despite being employed afternoons. His activities: Baseball I, llg Usher at Senior Play lVg Senior Costume Committee lVg Class Book Paragrapber. Gi-:onus FRENCH THEinAifi.'r "lie was a maug take him for all in all, llfr' shall not look upon his like again." "Fat" was one of the big men of our class. He certainly must have looked immense to his opponents on the football field. Together with his pal, "Danny," George also became valuable to the track teams. We shall not forget for some time "Fat's" two pet sayings, "Keep to the right," and "Name your poison." These were results of hard labor on Tratiic Duty Ill, and Lunch Counter IV. "Fat" was a clever lad with books, as is proven by the fact that he was fifth in Upper Fourth. He made an imposing chauffeur for Beulah Bax- ter in "Merton of the Movies." ANTo1N1aTTE RosANNA THEROUX "Her 'ways arp ways of pleasantness And all her paths are peace." "Tony" always came to school early in the morning so that she could touch up on her lessons. No wonder she received such good marks in English Grammar, her favorite sub- ject! VX'hen things went wrong, she showed herself a courageous little optimist. VVhen- ever there was a football game, you were sure to find "Tony" there, shouting and cheer- ing the boys. Her activities were as follows: Vice-President Home Economics Club IV: "Pinafore" llg Senior Costume Committee lVg Home Economics Club ll, Ill, IV. TUSITALA BENJAMIN '.lxHOMAS, JR. "Fair ideas Haze, Sirifi- in the xleeirlz, or in ilu' piefiwt' glaze." What? You have never heard of "Benny," the short-statured fellow that drives around town in a "Studie"l Ut' course you have! He was a sociahle fellow and a lmorn artist, to the latter of which facts his noteliook covers and those of his many friends testified. He was on the A. A. Ticket Committee lg Drill Leader l: Ring Committee llg Track l, ll. His appearance in the studio scene of "Mer- ton of the Movies," as the contriluutor ol' soulful music on his violin, was a surprise to those of us who did not know of his talent in this line. JANIQ1' lf:I.I.liN 'l'1Nm:R "Graff was in her .rtep.r, I1C'U7't'I1' in lzvr eye, In every gesture dignity and love."

This is proven lay the fact that we elected her as the Secretary of our junior Class.

No one, lor he always met everything with a smile, and was always sure to find the funny side. Alexander never took anything seriously,-not even his studies. One of the things for which he is most noted is the latest styles in men's halwerdashery. His holmlmy was dancing and he was considered one of the hest dancers in the class, We wish you all kinds of genuine good fortune, Alexander. TUSITALA JOHN PETER Tsirsos "The glad eirrle round him yield their .fouls To festive mirth and wit that knozus no gall." Say! VVho's this? Vvhy, it's our short, active classmate "Johnny." He was one of our most popular boys, a nomad, a famous milk shaker, and a larynx strainer. He could be found almost anywhere, in the right place at the wrong time. He liked to tease teachers with endless questions and relieved the monotony of classes by an occasional "wise- crackf' He was a Drill Leader III, and will always be remembered as the busy "Weller" of "Merton of the Movies." The chances are strong that he'll turn out to be one of our leading comedians! ALICE VERONICA TURLA "If it required no brains, no nerve, no energy, 110 work, There would be no glory in achie'1Je1ne-nt." Alice has decided to leave the sheltered lea of her home-city to seek her fortunes in the wide World. VVell, Alice will succeed. Her smile, which produces a queer-little thing called a dimple, helps to draw aihe crowd to the "Sweetest Spot in Town." Alice can get along with rich man, Cgirlj poor man fgirll beggar man, Cno girlsj thief, doctor, lawyer, Indian chief. VVe hope the right he will at least be a gentleman, as being an officer of the Civics Service Club must have put strong American ideals into her head.

Approximately twenty school letters have been won by its members in every branch of sport, in spite of the ruling which states that but one letter shall be given in four years of varsity competition. ln the fall of 1925, we began our fame by sending llegasis, lliskaf duros Sousane, Mansiielcl, and Cbestnolvich out for football. "His- cuits" was the only one to make his letter. The others saw considerable action as substitutes. During the winter the basketball team enioyed a successful season without the aid of the-class of '29, but that spring, "Tommy" O'Neil jumped into the spotlight by capably holding down the shortstop posi- tion on the baseball team, and winning his emblem. "Biscuits" had stiff competition as an outfielder, but was a first string substitute. The high school track team although not officially recognized biought home the Kiwanis Cup. 68 TUSITALA The football team completed a season which is sad to relate. it lost all games except two, which were scoreless ties. VVhat was more, it did not score a point all season. The players were light and inexe perienced, but they had the onlookers on their toes when they held the heavier and more experienced Meriden team to a 12-O victory for the latter. "Chesty." "Danny," "VVinnie," Hlliscuitsf' and "Souzy" were regulars now, and Thompson, "Porky,' Boyd, and 'ATommy" O'Neil were substitutes. These were the makings of a future great team. Again in l926 our class was unrepresented in basketball, but in the spring "Tommy" again stepped into the "hot corner," while "Biscuits" and "King" Ciiuimond held held positions as regulars. "jimmy" Davis, "Ted" Vvfilkins, "Pat" llaly, and A'Gokey" saw action as substitutes. Others not interested in baseball turned their attention to track. Those from '29 on the team were "lJanny", Theriault, "lCrry" Aubin, lllarcoux, 'Jeff' Campbell, and llaynes. After about a month of pick and shovel work at Artillery pond making the place resemble a track, we ran an interclass meet. The seniors won, but '29 was second and a close runner up. All those mentioned above were point winners for '29. In the State and Kiwanis meets, 'gllannyu won several cups and medals for his work in the weights. The fall of 1927 tells a different story for the football team. With "Chesty" at tackle, "VVinnie" at end, "Souzy" at center, "Danny" at quarter, "Biscuits" at half, and lloyd alternating at guard, we sailed FOOTBALL TEAM 1929 TUSITALA 69 through the season with but one defeat. At Concord we took a 12-0 beating. This was what made victory so sweet in '28. "Tommy" U'Neil, Haynes, and Theriault saw some action as substitutes. In 1927-28 our class began to be represented on the basketball team, for "Ted" Wilkins and "Gokey" tried out for forward positions. "Gokey" jumped right in on the first team, making his letter, while "Ted" was a capable substitute. Seventeen out of twenty games fell to Nashua during that season. In '28 the baseball team again had "Tommy"' at short, he was as much a part of the team as the coach by this time, and he handled that position as nicely as any player who ever wore a high school uniform. "Biscuits" dropped out before the end of the season, but "jimmy" Davis and Farrell were inserted into several games, failing, however, to make their letters. At the end of the season, O'Neil was elected captain for the year 1929. In the spring of 1928, despite lack of support from school author- ities, Nashua High was represented by an unofficial track team. Theriault, "Danny," "jeff," Marcoux, and "Chesty" trained daily to enter the State and Kiwanis meets, where they placed fifth and third respectively. "Danny" and George covered themselves with medals and glory, and brought home several cups. Degasis broke the state record in throwing the l'shot," but unluckily someone exceeded his best toss. He and Theriault made their letters. We are proud of them all! The crowning glory of the class of '29 came in the football team of the fall of 1928. Five of last year's regulars were lost by graduation, but the nucleus of a winning team remained, and a winning team it proved to be. While "Winnie," "Souzy," Haynes, and Theriault were picking them up and laying them down in the line, "Danny," "Tommy," and Captain Biskaduros were picking their way in the backfield. We scored 236 points to our opponents' 7, but lost one game to Lowell by a referee's decision of 7-6. We took revenge on Concord to the tune of 54-O, and in our last game ever to be played with Meriden, were victorious 45-0. "Bob" Prew from '29 was our manager. Our participants in basketball in '28-'29 were "Jimmy" Davis, Nash, and "Gokey." "Gokey" was again a "howling success." Davis, a substitute forward, and Nash, a substitute center, played in many of the games and did their bit, but failed to make their letters. Track is starting with renewed impetus this spring under Coach Shurtleff, who took the place of Mr. Webster White when the latter was compelled to leave before the season began. Johnny Chestnolvich is manager and Marcoux, Theriault, Thomas, "Jeff" Campbell, and "Danny" Degasis are competing for the last time in their various events and succeeded in placing our numerals on the Swart shield. I Coach Pendleton ought to produce a winning team in baseball this spring, because only one member has been lost from last year by gradu- ation. This will be the last chance for any of our class members to 70 TUSITALA participate in sports. "Tommy" O'Neil is captain, making this his fourth year as a regular, and Bob Downey is manager. Success has been the one word for our four years of athletics in high school. For this, we owe most to Coach Raymond A. Pendleton. lt is he who has trained our boys to bring such fame to Nashua High, and we are thankful to have had such an able trainer. We are indeed grateful also to the student body of Nashua High and to the people of the city. lt is on account of their interest that we have been able to keep up a standard for sports which, we hope, will remain in our school forever. JAMES VV. DAVIS VV1cs1.Ev F. I-lAvNr1s BASEBALL TEAM 1929 TUSITALA 71 CAST OF UMERTON OF THE MOVIES" UMICRTON OF THE MOVIES" How long we'll remember Friday, December 21, l928fthe night of our presentation of "Merton of the Movies"! Shortly after eight o'clock the footlights glowed-the music ceased -and the curtain was raised before an interested audience. The first scene was in Gashwiler's General Store, in Simsbury, for was it "Gooseberry"?j Illinois. Mr. Gashwiler in private life is known as johnny Ryan-what a transformation! Gashwiler was about to close up when Iilmer Huff, the town fashion-plate, brcezed in to inquire for Merton. Well, well, jason Kimball! Couldn't you just guess it would he jason-with that "come hither" appeal? Merton appeared upon the scene shortly, the bashful though self-conhdent town fellow-justf er-movie crazy. But who wouldn't have been, with an idol like lleulah Baxter as his first inspiration? Well, we can't say Merton wasn't sincere in his efforts. QRemember his "stills," to say nothing of his private rehearsals with the dummies?j This, the title role, was memorably interpreted by Bob Griffith. The part of Tessie Kearns, the maidenly scenario writer, was played by Janet Tinker. The protit in the niillinery business wasn't very great, was it, Tessie? We soon found that Merton had invaded Hollywood-the llolden Studio, to be more exact. tYou remember that was where lleulah worked, and sometimes went in and out "like a human llCl11gn?D The casting director, cold and blasc, was not very kind to Merton, who was so devoted to the spirit of art, but underneath all the make-up beats :1 heart true and friendlykwe know the young lady as Hannah Fletcher. Henshaw, the movie directo1', thought he had an artistic tempera- ment, and his assistant, Weller, was a clamorous comeback. Who 72 TUSITALA could mistake "Steve" Gilbody and John Tsitsos with their ever-ready means of extracting giggles from even the more serious UQ Seniors? john Chestnolvich was on the lot as cameraman and surely furnished "local color," as did Frank Szebak, the studio doorman, with his news- paper and realistic blue overalls. "Winnie" Mansfield appeared as J. Lester Montague. "Pa" was a "real actor"-would anyone dispute that? Ah! Our heroine, whom we were so eager to see-"Beccy" Fletcher as Flips Montague. She surely fulfilled her role to the nth degree-a beautiful, heartrending young maiden-a delight to every masculine heart. Beulah Baxter, Merton's idol, was an indifferent, cool proposition, played by Phyllis Peacock. We have our doubts as to whether Phyllis knows 2 -1- 2 : 4 "by gossip." We think not! Anne Oulton was Beulah's trim little maid, and George Theriault her statuesque chauf- feur. Harold Parmalee, the "society actor," with spats, monocle, Eng- lish, accent, 'neverythin' couldn't be mistaken, Edward Vinnicombe -an interpretation of London's latest! Speaking of local color, let us not forget in the scene which starred Harold Parmalee, Mildred Boucher as Muriel Mercer, the professional weeper, Neil Putnam as Parmalee's valet, and the very attractive movie extras, Virginia Campbell, Beatrice Currul, and Edward Brown. When there was a call for some sentimental music, Benny Thomas was right on hand as Max, the studio violinist. The Montague girl finally realized her ambition when she had Merton signed up with jeff Baird, the Buckeye Comedy King. No wonder that Merton was deceived in believing he was doing something liner than "low-down comedy stulff' for Danny Degasis, as jeff Baird, was just the person to put something over on him. At Merton's rooming house we found Elizabeth Young as Mrs. Patterson. The dear woman, though a little inquisitive at times, was a motherly landlady, wasn't she, Merton? Wesley Haynes as business- like Mr. Walberg of the Bigart, came to Mrs. Patterson's to offer Merton a fine contract, but no amount of high-pressure salesmanship could have induced Merton to leave Jeff Baird. The play came to a close with a rollicking success-Merton and the Montague girl came together and-er-lived happily ever after, for was she not his "best pal and his severest critic"? To Mrs. jane Milliken Tufts, aided by Miss Cornell, chairman of the committee, and the Senior teachers, we are very grateful for the success of our play. The very realistic scenery was shifted many times, but through the efficiency of the stage crew, the waits between scenes were remarkably shortened. "Merton of the Movies" was a stupendous undertaking and merits a high position in amateur dramatics at N. H. S. We should not be surprised to see some of our contemporary amateurs applying the grease paint as professionals sometime in the future. MARTHA D.

This morning all the heirs of the Class of 1929 were agreeably surprised and delighted when the last will and testament of that class was read in the city courtroom. Curiously enough, the will was found in the ceiling light of Room 7A in the Nashua High School building. Custodian Shea supervised the finding of the will by one of the minor members of the C. C. C.

"Seventh: We bequeath to Miss Dowd, because of her love of quiet, a fairly large placard bearing the inscription Silence. May this aid her in keeping the pupils under restraint. She may find the placard in any hotel she may visit this summer. "Eighth: Because of her love for books, we leave Miss Barnes a collection of romantic novels including Shadowed and Manhattan Cocktail. If she believes in Santa Claus, he'll bring them to her about Christmas time. "Ninth: We bequeath to Mr. Kempton the many broken test tubes smashed by Bob Griffith, and he may keep what nickels he has collected to pay for them. "Tenth: We appoint Miss Sullivan the smiling traffic cop of the front junior corridor. We leave her a large badge shaped like the badge of the Hudsonian authorities. "Eleventh: We leave behind for Mrs. Nesmith many girls whom she may take under her wing for comradeship. Hadn't you better start making friends with the boys, too, Mrs. Nesmith?

ROY P phecies IIART I "Why, for IICZIVCIIIS sake! Look what's here! Phyl Peacock! excuse me, Countess Corn Crib. How'd you get here? Right on my own front porch in Nashua, New Hampshire, when I thought you were thousands of miles away, honeymooning on the Mediterranean. VVhere's your huslmancl? IIow's it feel to be a Countess? Did the Europeans enjoy your lectures on the 'Fundamental Principals of Feminine Inde- pendenee,'-was that it? Ilas he a mustache-Count Hubby, I mean? lj he clark, or light, or what,4oh, hurry! Your letters have been so iiiclelinitefl "Well, how can l, with you talking so fast?

By the way, how do you like the married life?" 'lNot so worse!"4tmore that need not be publishedj "You're just in time to go shopping with me if you have the whole afternoon to waste. I'm having the time of my life furnishing our new home. 'Margarets' is my First destination: I've been trying to make an ap- TUSITALA 79 pointment with the proprietress for weeks, and have only just succeeded. You remember Margaret Bancroft ?-Well, she has one of the finest collections of antiques in the United States. She has a piece In want very much, but as the guide says it's not for sale, I've been trying to see Margaret about it. Notice, please, I've clung to my maxim, 'Where there's a will there's a way'! Did you know that Agnes Buxton has become an authoress? You must purchase her latest book, 'Conven- tional Decorum 5' it's one of her best. Why, what's the matter? Whom did you see?" "That girl on the poster," cried Phyl. "She looks very familiar." "She ought to. 'Rita de Rivera, Hollywood's latest iind,' is none other than Rena Chimiklisf' After I had transacted my business with Margaret, we headed back toward town. "My, but everything has changed a great deal since I left," Phyl exclaimed. "Oh, what a splendid hotel-doesn't look much like Nashua of '29. It sounds well, 'The Van de Grifte'." "John Gibson is the owner, that's his wife's maiden name. It's very up-to-date, and the garden is a dream. Betty Young planned it. You know she is one of the foremost landscape gardeners of the country. "That building on the corner, 'Norm's Five and Ten,' is one of Norman Page's. He has them scattered all over the United States. The best part of them is that they are not painted red. ,I'll have to leave the car in 'The Mart',-can't park around here. Don't you think it's just great the way so many of the twenty-niners have come back to build up the home town? Frank Wlieeler and Roland Conery are running this garage. UI have to go in 'Kudzma and Hamlin's.' No, it's not newg but then, it is for you, you have been away so long. This is a fine depart- ment store. We no longer need to go out of town in order to find what we want. There, didn't I tell you? Aren't these the most ador- able pillows! I'll take this one-and this-and this. Yes, deliver them, please. Remember Annie Kudznaa and Lillian Hamlin-they are in partnership. How do you do! That was another one of our Eld classmates, Betty Parratt. She's principal of the grammar schools ere. h "Oh, Phyl! I know where we can get the best toast-and-tea. 'The Nile Green'-it's the dearest place. Alice Turla, Mary Sklat, Bernice Ifartkus, and Elizabeth Arlauskas, in the business world known as 'The l7oursome,' have tea rooms all over New England, and the 'Nile Green' is one of theirs. Here it is now. Aren't you crazy about it? "Phyl, there is Muriel Nash, German teacher at our high school, and Mrs. Branan, once Lucy Collins. Girls, remember Phyl Peacock? Thisnis it, only now she's Countess of Coornhuuse. Yes, we'll sit with you. .After we had ordered our tea, our conversation drifted to a dis- cussion of our high school classmates. "I just heard that Bernice 80 TUSITALA Bassett has been made a captain of the Salvation Army," I put in. "Don't you feel extra glad at others' successes when they are people you know P" "Pauline Fifield has the honor of being known as the best stenog- rapher in New England." This from Lucy. Muriel informed us that the girls' basketball coach at school was Stella Bausha, also that Ethel Hodge was Superintendent of Memorial Hospital. "'Marg and joe's novels' are all the rage!" Lucy told Phyl. " 'Marg' is Margaret Sullivan. She writes the stories for which 'joe's' imagination furnishes plots. Joseph Petrowski is 'joe'." "Phyl, you must go to 'Farrell's Rink' tomorrow night. Yes, that's Francis Farrell. There's to be a skating exhibition, and Mary Moriarty, who has world-wide renown as a fancy skater, is to be the star." The Count arrived. QHe was all that Phyl had said, and more, tooj I persuaded them to dine with us, and Hubby discovered that after all a Count is human. We decided to take in "Dick's Frivolitiesf' a snappy musical comedy which was playing here for a short time. Dick LaMarche- yes, our own Dick-had consented only after quite a bit of urging to a Nashua engagement. Alexander Tsiantos was the dancing director of all the "Frivolities." During intermission I continued to gossip. "Phyl, see that woman over there on the left in that stunning purple dress, there's a handsome man on her right, her husbandg do you know the one I mean? She was Elizabeth Christian back in '29. "That large man over there, who is so frantically searching for his program, is Leighton Burgess. He is now the Y. M. C. A. Secre- tary of New Hampshire." "Well, Hannah," interposed Phyl, "one classmate whose success I heard of while I was abroad was Alice Desmarais, when she swam the channel and set a new record." 'fOh, yes, wasn't that thrilling! Remember Ed Dogan and Kasmir Jones? They have been instrumental in the founding of the Merrimac Valley Military Academy, a fine preparatory school that seems started on the road to success.-Oh, Phyl! See that blond looking so gay in his dress suit? That's Bill Axton, a successful electrical engineer. Why, I do believe he has brought his secretary with him, another one of us twenty-niners, Madeline Harte." just at this moment Phyl, startled by a strangely familiar tap on her shoulder and a 'fHi, Phyl," looked up into the genial face of Ned Brown. "Well of all things!" she exclaimed. "Same old Ned." "Of course!" I butted in. "As if he could change much! At present he is a Professor of the 'Impalpable Appurtenances to Feminine Allurement,'-in other words, 'It.' His heiress hasn't turned up yer, consequently he's enjoying the bliss of bachelorhoodf' TUSITALA 81 After chatting awhile with us, Ned left, and soon the curtain went up for the last act. VVhen the performance was over, we drove out to "The Brown Shack," Paul Rimbach's night club. Lucile Dane, hostess, gave us a hearty welcome. ' NVe have a big surprise for you this evening," she said. "Girls, take a firm hold of your men while I introduce the little lady of the evening. We have with us 'The Enchantressf-need anything more be said?" ' Oh, what a dancer! She's exquisite!" cried Phyl. "Look, Lou's bringing her to the table! Why, Bus! Bertha Wakely! So you're 'The Enchantress'?" Further conversation was interrupted by a page boy calling "jacques, Count of Coornhuuse, telegram for Jacques, Count of Coorn- huusef' After reading the message very carefully, the Count stood up and said, "Come, we must leave immediately. I am urged to take the first boat for Coornhuuse. War is impending with Beaumonte-la-Ferre." Phyl's last words as she disappeared through the door had some- thing to do with "feminine independence." I was exceedingly sorry that we could not have been together longer after our protracted separation. HANNAH FLETCHER PART II After passing twenty years of arduous labor as head nurse of a sanitarium in Colorado, Barbara Berry and I decided that our long and unselfish service merited a vacation. Both of us being agreeable to visiting our native city, we made the necessary arrangements, and on May 15, 1949, at precisely 8:15 A. M. took off from the Denver avia- tion held in a comfortable tri-motor plane. We had barely settled our- selves for the five-hour trip when suddenly the two occupants of the seat opposite came over beside us. Looking up, whom did we see but Edna Lindquist and Louise Willette! During the jovous exchange of greetings which followed, we learned that their destination was Nashua, also. During the course of our conversation, we learned of the lives and fortunes of several of our old friends. Ernest Ledoux was .1 multi-millionaire, maintaining a palatial residence at Hollywood, while Stanley Bartis was installed as the United States Ambassador to Brazil. Edna and Louise had been on a tour of the United States, and had more interesting information for us. 'While in Nevada, they had been guests on Rebecca Fletchers huge ranch, where she was having the time of her life, so they said, and incidentally writing poetry in leisure moments. Raymond Smith was successfully raising fruit in Santa Barbarajand they had met and tallied with Bob Rogers, who was 32 TUSITALA teaching psychology in Mexico City. After gasping over this news, Barbara and I were not to be outdone, and told them our bit of gossip. Robert Prew, our valedictorian of '29, was married and just then exploring the African jungles with his wife. From a newspaper, we had gleaned the information that Hannah Fletcher had made a name for herself carving unique and remarkable figures on Egyptian tombs. VVhile we were talking, we were rapidly nearing Nashua. Sud- denly an air-traffic ofhcer's plane came along beside us. A be-goggled head emerged from the window, and a voice shouted, "Speed up, there, please-you're going too slowly!" Something in the voice of the offi- cer made me look more closely-sure enough, it was Doris Stevens, herself! The pilot willingly increased the speed of our plane, and we were soon in sight of our destination, the center of a huge aviation field at Lawndale! . With a gentle bump, the plane hit the field, and gradually came to a standstill. As we alighted, Louise said in an undertone, "There's the Mayor standing over there." Following the direction of her gaze, I beheld-Heliodore Marcoux! Edna explained that he had delivered such an eloquent and convincing speech on the importance of aviation during the Mayoralty campaign, that he had been unanimously elected. Barbara and I were not greatly surprised at this, nor at the fact that Gertrude Lesieur, who was standing nearby, was pointed out as the foremost lawyer in the city. At this point Edna and Louise said good- bye, and hailing a plane marked Concord Highway, hurried home to prepare lunch for their respective husbands. After talking for some time with Gertie and Mayor Marcoux, Bar- bara and I inquired the name of a good hotel. Gertie immediately asked us to lunch with her at a greatly patronized tea-room, the name of which she refused to divulge. Before going to lunch, however, we decided to look around the landing field. just then along came a man garbed in the uniform of the air-traffic officer-it was Johnny Nash, himself! He offered to show us the various points of interest on a huge dirigible nearby, which was nearly ready to start for Europe. A mechanic who was busily engaged in adjusting some part of the landing gear turned around as we reached the ship, and there was Charlie Lap- ham! The immaculate Charlie, brought to this! He went with us while we explored the interior. On our way up to the radio room, we nearly collided with one of those dignified specimens of humanity termed "head waiters." Recovering his balance, his well-laden tray, and incidentally his dignity, he turned to confront us. "William Doschavich !" was all I could say. He handed his tray to a more insignificant waiter and followed us into the radio room. The operator proved to be Rodney Stoddard. Barbara and I sank into convenient chairs, and called for water. This was really too much! To cap the climax, the door suddenly opened, and in came johnny Tsitsos, Johnny Ryan, and Bob Wade. It was fortunate that I was TUSITALA 8 3 already seated, so amazing was the sight before me. Johnny Tsitsos wore a clown's be-speckled costume, twhich we all thought appro- priatej while Johnny Ryan had on an ensemble consisting mainly of a grass skirt, a huge red scarf, and a bunch of daisies. Gracing Bob's long, slender person was a stunning pair of baby-blue rompers, smocked in pink. The trio were evidently to supply the entertainment on the trip. They told us confidentially that in an attempt to uplift the dignity of their profession, they had decided to go along on a trip in this particular dirigible, already famous for its great altitude record. After the excitement had somewhat lessened, Gertie suggested that we start for lunch. Barbara and I willingly acquiesced, for it was long past two o'clock. "I beg your pardon," said a voice next my ear, "but aren't you-F" I looked up quickly, and there among the passengers coming aboard was Cora LaMontain. Closely following were Rochelle Black, Virginia Campbell, and Mildred Boucher. The four explained that they were just running over to Paris to take charge of an exclusive hat shop. A moment later Julia Kazloskas and Dorothy Kessler dashed breathlessly up. It seemed they were also bound for Paris, just as a little relief from excessive domesticity. Rodney, however, was warning everyone to stand back as the ship was about to start, and so out of dire neces- sity, we were forced to leave. We then taxied in Gertiels plane to a distant part of the field where there was a fuel station, at which we stopped for oil. Gut came the operators-Norma Bates, Charlotte Benson, and Ruth Whittemore! Forgotten was our desire for lunch-we talked for a full half-hour. As we took off shortly afterwards, I noticed a huge building on the site formerly occupied by Brockelman Brothers. On my inquiring about it, Gertie nonchalantly informed me that it was Walter Bausha's cele- brated chewing-gum factory. This recalled instances in our high- school life, when certain waste-baskets were never found devoid of that particular commodity. Landing soon after, in a small field, we entered the famous tea-room, and were greeted by none other than Elizabeth Daly, Anna Annis, and Lucille Harmon! During lunch I learned much of interest. Dorothy Fosdick was married and living in Russia, while Lucille Lapointe was also in that blissful state,,and in London. Theodore Stylianos was the proud owner of a large cheese factory in Switzerland, and Roderick Fraser was busy amassing a fortune at Monte Carlo! - In spite of all these startling facts, we managed to consume a very delectable lunch, and on returning to our duties in Colorado, two days later, felt decidedly refreshed, and ready for twenty more years of self- sacrificing, arduous labor. REATRICE CURRUL 84 TUSITALA PART III I am often found in strange places, in fact, I frequently Hnd my- self in an unexpected position. With this in mind, you may well believe me, when I say that I was not more than mildly surprised when I awakened one bright summer day on the side of a mountain. Instantly my mind attempted to recall the events which had led me to lie down in this place. It has been said that to travel is to educate oneself 5 consequently after graduation I had chosen this method of education as the one of least resistance, and had left for New York and the Catskill Mountains. A fewvhours after my arrival at a summer resort situated in these mountains, I had left for a trip up the largest with a short, fat man, looking like a bank director. We had stopped at a place where several other men, strangely like my companion, were playing clock-golf and refreshing themselves with lemonade. Even then the affair reminded me of the one in which Rip Van Winkle had played such an unfortunate part, nevertheless, I had partaken of the lemonade and become drowsy. The result Was, that I had lain down to sleep in this spot and remained there ever since. Having become fully convinced that I had been asleep twenty years, I decided that the date must be July 4, 1949. I felt of my face and head. My beard had grown to at least two and one-half feet, and my hair would have had to be measured in yards. All this, I decided, must be taken in a matter-of-course fashion. I supposed my joints creaked. I moved my legs slowly. Yes, they did, and I was painfully stiff. My clothes were in tatters, and I was a sorry sight. While debating what my next step should be, I heard footsteps approaching. The intruder proved to be a tall man in a general's uniform. "Wesley Haynes," I cried, "what are you doing here P" "Steve Gilbodyf' he ejaculated, "where have you been all these years ?" When I told my story, he proved to me that my guess as to the date had been correct. He explained to me that he and his troops were stationed here over the holiday. General Haynes escorted me back to camp, and graciously provided me with food, clothes, a bath, a shave, and a haircut. I explained to him that I wished to return to Nashua. "Sure," he said, "Elmer Corey and -Ted Wilkins will take you back with them in about twenty minutes." The means of locomotion proved to be a huge airship, which mv two classmates told me was the result of Nezzy's proving Einstein's theory of insulation against gravity. The ship was operated by magnets. They also told me that Nashua now reached from what had been Manchester to Boston and was the world's largest city because of the fact that certain magnetic lines of force existed only over that region. TUSITALA 8 5 When we arrived in Nashua, my two friends left me in the hands of George Biskaduros, who was the city manager. I congratulated him upon his successg and he told me many things of interest concerning our classmates as we walked toward his office. For instance, Leona Cohen and Anne Oulton were great successes as lawyers. Phil Dubois, Paul Levesque, and Arthur Smith were designers of all the great airports of the world. Of course this information aroused my curiosity concerning my classmates, and I asked for more. "Alfred Guimond and Lawrence Gauthier own a big baseball club," he said, "and George Sousane is the strong man of Danny Degasis' circus. john Zinkawich is the famous magician of the same circus." While he was relating this, my eyes were busy observing the sky- scrapers of my native city. Under three clustered, golden balls was the sign, "-I. Campbell, Pawnbrokerf' As I gazed in the dingy window, I beheld Jeffrey, wearing a skull cap, and arguing with an Oriental. "Well," I soliloquized, "I had always thought that he would be a poet." George was speaking again. "Lorraine Webster and Ardelle VVheeler are famous dancers," he said. "Alyce Kitchener and Geneva Ledoux own a beauty parlor here in Nashua. Natalie Gauthier and Thelma Ouellette are big brokers on Factory Street, which, by the way, has replaced Wall Street as a Hnancial center. Helen McDonald a11d Sadie O'Brien are bankers." He told me that all these girls were very successful, a fact which I was very glad to hear. "What about Tom O'Neil?" I asked. "Tom ?" he replied. "Here he comes now. He's President of the United States." UNO !u "Ask him." "See you later," I cried, and ran over to shake hands with the President. Immediately six secret-service men sprang at my throat, but Tom called them off. 'fSteve!" he shouted, "come on up to the White House." "Where is it ?" I asked. "A few blocks down the street," he replied. "It has been moved to Nashua permanently." Of course I accepted, and on the way to the Executive Mansion I retold my story. Tom generously asked me to stay with him, and l agreed. When we arrived, we seated ourselves in some easy chairs. "'Biscuit' was telling me of some of our classmates," I said. "Suppose you continue." ' "Well," Tom answered, "Bennie Thomas designs Paris gowns for women. Nason Fessenden has made a name for himself in polo. lLucv Farmer and Mildred Shunaman are famous pedestrians. Wilfred Pelletier and Frank Rancourt hold the two-man championship of the world in ping-pong. Julia Turner and Madeline Walentukevich are the leading historians of the world." 86 TUSITALA "just a minute," I said, "what about Helen Stapanon ?" " 'Pinkie' is a wonderful artist," he replied, Hthe most popular landscape painter in the world. Martha Curran is a famous actress. She has, in fact, taken Ethel Rarrymoreis position. Ruth Smith, Hazel johnson, and Antoinette Theroux are certified Public Accountants 11.uch in demand." 1 'gSelma Gatz and Lucy Lucien," I asked, "what has become of t .em . " "They," said the President, "are our famous athletes. Selma is tennis champion of the world, and Lucy is the leading woman golfer of the United States. Ho-hum, let's go to bed." "All right," I agreed, "I don't need it, though. And say, vou be sure to wake me up in the morning. One more sleep like my last one and I'll be out of the picture." ' "Yep," he answered. Imagine telling the President to wake you up. About ten minutes later I opened his bedroom door and said, "Hey, Tom, what's became of Edie Vinnicombe ?" ' "Eddie's manager of the Westchester-Biltmore in New York City," he replied. And I retired, happy to think that my classmates were successful in the world. STEPHEN L. GILBODY PART IV Confound that racket! An exploding bomb rocked the buildings on Chicago's main thoroughfare as I swiftly shifted into something or other and steered the Dodge around the prostrate bodies of a gunman and his victim, sprawled inertly in my path. 'AA few more delays of this type and I won't even make the last half of that game! Hmmm- that reminds me, I haven't seen a good football scrimmage since I graduated from high school, and that means fifteen years and six months gone! Hello! What's this F" A tall gaudy figure, resplendent in multi-colored robes, dashed frantically from a side street, two average thugs in close pursuit. When the fugitive bounded upon my running board with the agility of the desperate, I was slightly taken aback. "All-powerful Sir," he gasped, "in the name of mercy bear me hence and may Allah guide thy foot to the accelerator. Yon cut throat dogs purpose to end this unworthy existence !" "Sorry, Friend, but I'm late for a football game now," I replied hurriedly. "Ah, but," came the final entreaty, "the secret of Sulahman dies with me." He glanced at the onrushing brigands. "Defend me and I share it with thee, O champion of lost causes." Realizing that the score would be settled by now, I bade him cling on, and one hour later drew up in a crowded street in Detroit. I then turned to look at my TUSITALA 37 protege. His scarlet turban and robes of gold brocade were unques- tionably eastern, the flowing beard and fixed spirituality of his gate immediately stamped him a seer. Disembarking, he turned to me and spoke, "May Allah, the Alle Compassionate and Merciful, smile upon thee this day and guide thee into His Seventh Heaven of Bliss Eternal. Because thou hast this dav shown mercy unto the oppressed, place beneath thy collar this singlt duplicate of the Seal of Sulahman, and for fifteen minutes a week shall thou know that which thou desirestf' So speaking, he slipped around a corner. Leaning back in the car, I anxiously followed directions, and began to concentrate. From now on l find it increasingly difficult to express all that occurred. ln the first place I seemed to be on the grandstand of the '1 ia Juana race track. A line of thoroughbreds had just broken the tape. Mobs were howling madly. But in the midst of a ring of camera men, one arm about the neck of the winner, stood Jimmie Davis. "Yes,' I heard him say to an eager reporter as he accepted the fifty thousand dollar sweepstakes, "it's my first big race, but all I am or ever hope to be, I owe to Pansy here." And at this Pansv whinnied a delighted acknowledgement of the tribute. Next I was shown the world's longest restaurant. "Adam and Eve on a raft. Wreck 'em," a powerful voice boomed at one end of the building. At the opposite end, two miles away, a man placed the desired meal in an electric carry-all and waited the further instructions of Imelda Smith, chief announcer of Child's, Inc. Following this, my vision surveyed the stone steps of the mighty Kremlin in Moscow. Surrounded by a throng of Russian nobility and peasantry, Bob Griffith knelt in ermine robes. Above him stood a person whom I took for a prime minister. "And now," quoth this worthy, "having driven the hated Bolsheviki from our beloved coun- try, I, Ivan Awfulitch, crown you Czar of all the Russians by the Grace of God and the People." So saying, he placed the gorgeous dia- dem upon the kingly brow of Robert I. Thence was I swept to the enchanted waterways of Venice, in time to see Elaine Pederzani paddling a tourist about in a gondola, while from a balcony above, Lorraine Morin filled the night with the liquid notes of "O Sole Mio." The incomprehensible insight recently grantel informed me that the girls had set up a partnership, Elaine furnishing the transportation, and Lorraine the local color for tourists. Over the desert, in my next lapse, lurched the gaunt figure of a camel. Clinging to its single hump, I discerned Winnie Mansfield and Steve Gilbody, searching weary and hollow-eyed for water. "They,' said the voice, "are endeavoring to catch up with the rear-guard of the foreign Legion in Algeria, to which they sold their lives five years ago." The ship of the desert, bearing its pitiful load, rocked on into the sunsct. "Ladieeeees and gentlemen, how much am I offered for this beautiful specimen of Mack truck? Not a cough in its engine, not a 8 8 TUSITALA hole in its tank. What! Only 5500? Why, come, come, who will triple this paltry offer? Coming, going, gone, and went." It took no second glance to tell me that Lambert Burque was a successful auctioneer. The mighty auditorium of the Metropolitan Opera House, packed to the doors, slid into view. Even as I glanced at the stage, George 'I heriault, clad in the garb of a Hebrew captive clutched a temple pillar in either brawny arm, and while singing the closing aria of "Samson and Delilah," brought the house down. George an opera star! I gasped. OY! , And in this manner the pictures Hew by, one showing me Janet Tinker resplendent in her role of popular young dean of a female Seminary with Betty Parks governing the Latin department, and Peter Munton the swimming classg another, Julia Lycette fwith her last name changedj receiving in her ow11 parlor a skilled dietician who could take off more fat in one minute than consumption can in one year, namely, Eunice Goodman. Scarcely have they begun the study and discussion of Milton Sharpe's latest novel, "Her," when in pop Marjorie .lohnson and Anne Gordon from their joint beauty parlor, where they have been busy with repairs all day. But really thrilling was the scene where Louise Shackford lay bound to a wheelbarrow in the path of an onrushing locomotive while john Chestnolvich pulled his black whiskers in fiendish glee. Although I knew it to be a movie set-up from Hollywood, I felt quite relieved when jason Kimball rode up on a champion steed, snatched the fair creature from certain death, and slapped the villain on the wrist. Then, too,I was shown the gigantic wild animal ranch which Lillian Haselton and Dot Smith had' built up from their girlhood ex- periences. At the same time, the sight of the dairy and egg farm in which Bob Downey and Charlie Tebbetts had found happiness among delighted hens and contented cows was a source of great satisfaction to me. Very beautiful indeed was the scene wherein Roger Poirier, who, I learned, had been sent to Samoa as a missionary along with Ruth Leach, as pianist, gathered his little flock together under the palms to explain to them the evils of eating each other. But at this junction the spirit of' Sulahman warned me that the fifteen minutes were nearly up. "Do away with the pictures," I cried. "Tell me yourself what has be- come of them! I must know. I must!" ' "Beatrice Currul," intoned the majestic voice, "is now an interior decorator of the first rank. To her has been assigned the decoration of the King of England's new palace. Bill Law is conducting a scienlihc exploration of the island of Sumatra. Russell Noyes is captain of a liner on the Chinese sea, having spent two years before the mast and five in other parts of the ship. You have only to gaze on the towering skyscrapers back in Nashua to gauge Neil Putnam's success as a contractor. Visit any big college game and you will find Albina Dublow as a professional cheer leader. When they purchase TUSITALA 89 her services, they simply can't lose. Even now Raymond Roy is in Paris sketching the Follies Queen, Agatha Hackett. Next to Frank Szebak's electrical truck farm, Herbert Snow has opened a summer home. He, by the way, is holding down a big job on the daily Globe. Under the name of 'Mother of the Freshmen' Ruth Parnell is runnin! a college boarding house with great success in New Haven. Oh, this 1-9 a talented class of yours," he said. "Why, Edward GaiTney's eggless eggbeater is an invention which has revolutionized the world! Mildred Sullivan has reduced the teaching of the popular St. Vitus Dance to a matter of two hours! And if you ever hear Esther Stone sing in that Downtown night club wait-I'll give you the address-But your time as up." The voice had died away, yet I felt a tug at my arm. "See here, Bozo, your time is up. How long do you think you can park on a busy corner anyhow," shouted a big traffic cop in my ear. "Oh, pardon me, Olhcerf' I apologized. "I thought you were an Arabian Spirit." "Say, do you want to get a ticket, Fresh Guy ?" The brute snapped out. "Better move those wheels in a quick way." I made them move.
