N uw 'I I K MISS MARTHA CICRAMER Dedication Quantity 'is the cry of the younger generation, produce and reproduce in less time, but we cannot fail to realize that it is quantity combined with quality that assures real success. We have found within our midst one who il' lustrates this truth-namely, one of our beloved senior teachers, who has not only served our entire class faith, fully through our problems in English but who has also become a sterling friend of the editors of this book. Her willingness to lay aside other important work to assist them has been more than appreciated. It is an honor for us to dedicate this Tusitala to Miss Martha Cramer.

"Joe" is a person who will not soon be for- gotten. He will be remembered primarily for his aggressiveness and his will to succeed. "Joe" was a generous chap, well liked by both his classmates and teachers. Because of his fighting spirit, he was a star on the football tieldg because of his knowledge and literary ability, he was a star in the classroomg and because of his ready wit, he was a star in the hearts of his friends. "Joe" was quite prominent in sports, participating in Football 1, ll, IVQ Basketball III, IVQ Track IV. He was also a Class Book Paragrapher, and a Class Prophet. WALLACE APONOVICH 'tBvHer ask tw-ice before you lose your 'way once." No doubt you would like to hear something about this good looking youth. Wallace was 5 quiet young man who was liked by all. He was very much interested in outdoor sports, especially football and hockey, and it was only because of lack of time that he did not try out for the purple teams. To many he was known as the star pinboy at a local bowl- ing alley. Wallace was always interested in mechanics and hopes to become an expert draftsman some day. Best o' luck from 1930. TUSITALA jonN BALUKONIS "O, what is that flower he mw' women?" john is a well-known patronizer of all dance halls, with a tendency to become in- fatuated with every good-looking girl that he sees. His perpetual grin, or we should say smile, has invoked a blush from many a demure damsel. In other words, he is the answer to a 'maiden's prayer. Despite his attention to the opposite sex, john finds time to do his work, and do it well. He has also been a member of the track team I, ll, Ill, IV. We hope to see you attain your ideal in the future, john. N1-1l.1.u5 ISABELLE BALtiKoNis ".S'Indious, earnest, shy, But oh, her looks and giggles!" Can you picture our "Nell" anything lint good-natured? She had the naughtiest baliit of giggling at most unexpected moments, and was it catching? We should say it was! Her broad smile reminded us of the girl in the toothpaste advertisement. She was able in her studies, and having almost always heard her name read on the Honor Roll, we were of course not surprised to hear it on the Upper Fourth. She hopes to be a private secretary to our national President, or at least to the Vice-President. Nellie was at member of the Home Economics Club ll. HELEN.A KIARIANNE Bmmnoski Cllroskeyl "To forget a 'wrong is the bex! 1'cz'wigt'." "Lena" was one young lady who did not believe in worrying over the future, Wher- ever seen, "Lena" would surely be found smiling and joking, with the result that she won many friends. She was popular with all her fellow students, and her witty remarks and jokes will not soon be forgotten. She was a true friend, always willing to stand by and help anyone in every way possible. When it came to asking questions, l'Lena" was by no means timid. She was a member of Home Economics Club II. THEIVALQ josnm-iiNi3 A. BELOWSKI "To bear ir to conquer our fate, livar with a .rutile and be great." "Josie" is one of these girls who are always discussing some thing or other-it may he a lesson assignment, certain instructions, or the size of an elephant. She is quite strong in her arguments, too-sometimes-when she's not on the wrong side of the fence. She has heen a puzzle to some of her schoolmates in one respect-her persistent nature-she, so small, yet sol unafraid of the higgest home- xvork assignment. When these come along, she fiercely grapples with the villains, and does not give up the tussle until she has com- pletely niastered them! No wonder she was rewarded with a place in Upper Fourth. I'IAI'S'I'YNA ANN BILLEVVICZ "Oli, dot'tor!" Yes, "l"uzzy" is really thinking seriously of hecoming a doctor. NYe'll have someone of our own class to take care of our grippes, colds, tonsilitises, and so on. When she be- gan to grumhle ahout all the hornc-work and these teachers-all we had to say was, "Cheer up, only eight more years!" If we didn't dodge the cuff in time, well, it was just too had. The industriousness which placed her high in Vpper Fourth didn't take up all her time, however. She helped in Crchestra I, ll, III, IV, as Drill Leader I, Ilg in Drama- tics Vluh III, IV, on Lunch Counter IV, and as prompter for "The freaking Chair" IV. Tnomivs Fmneis BINGIIAM "I will be brief." As this quotation implies, "Tom" will al- ways he rememhered for his ability to say much in a few words. A sudden spurt of conversation would often reveal an unusual vocalmulary, which "Tom" most of the time modestly kept hidden. No douht. he acquired it through the extensive reading which he so loved. Ile could often he seen at the Public Lihrary deeply engrossed in a hook. Perhaps he should have heen home studying at the time, hut inconsequential matters such as that never worried "Tommy." He was also fond of music, He and Peter were one of our pairs of inseparahles. -, we Css?.7EEl i' I'At'1.1Ni-1 OPHELIA BORCIAK "Maidens, like moflix, are Caught by glang' Take fare, lest flzuu later despair." To the point and with no heating ahout the bushwPauline's answers are frank and blunt. She is on familiar terms with almost every Senior-and more. NNho'd contradict us, considering her "poisonality"? Pauline is always racing with the clock. She and it have a constant scramble-one trying to get to school on time, the other endeavoring to tingle the bell a Second time, and oblige Pauline to get a "slip"Ano, not to meet the judge. l'auline's only weakness lies in boys -the bruies, but how she likes 'eml Her ambition is to become an artist-she's very good at drawing, too, if you ask us. She was in the chorus of "l'inafore" l, and "The Two Vagabondsu II. She also had a leading part in "Out of the Picture Frame," a play given hy the Art Class lll, and won a place in Upper Fourth. ANNA AIAE BRADY "Tv all obligizzg. yet rixverzfvd Io ull," Anna appeared to be a rather shy, reticent sort of girl, but She was always pleasant and obliging to each and all of her classmates, ready and willing to be of assistance when- ever possible. One of her favorite diversions must have been dancing, for she attended all the school parties-and how she could dance! Anna was enrolled as a member of the Home Economics Club. Lt'c11.i.i: l,.X'l"l'l-ZN BRUlll'IRIl'K "-Wyle ix ilu' dress of fl1ougl1t.r." 'lL0u" was popular with the boys as well as the girls, and was seen at many of the school dances. If there was any fun going on, "Lou" was right in the midst of it, and she had a cute little laugh of her own that no one else could imitate. Her list of activi- ties prove that she was popular: Ring Com- mittee ll, junior Prom Committee lllg Lunch Counter IV: Candv Girl at "The Creaking Chair" IX' and "The Lucky Jade" IVQ Class Costume Committee IV. TUSITALA Wg Wkg M PHY1.1.1s UNA Bkooks "Tall, stately and quiet." Una, as she is called by her friends, is a quiet girl in class, but once in a while she just bubbles over. She can make one laugh and keep a straight face herself as if nothing had happened. lf one watched Una closely, one saw her pondering and studying her les- sons, for she was a conscientious student. JOHN CAMERON . "All his faults are .ruch that one loves him still the better for them." john did not join us until our sophomore year when he came from Schenectady, New York, to Hudson, N. H. He had an old jordan six with which he roamed the country, and every morning had something more to tell about the antics of his old "junk" on the way to school. He wasn't "high hat," either, about giving rides to his school friendsg every day after senior play rehearsal he'd pile the car full and play taxi driver. l'Henley" became famous through one of the lines of "The freaking Chair"-"That's so,-no good sayin' it ain't."-and a certain bright pink shirt. Senior year, he was the one and only student tratiic oflicer in the school and one of the bright lights of the class with his broad grin and twinkling eyes. Lunch Counter IV, Senior Play Ticket Committee IV, Upper Fourth. DAVE CAM PBELL "His jovial t'lztn'rfulncs.v is the main trait of lzix t'lzarartt'r." VVC always remember Dave as the boy with the motorcycle, but what shall we say of his doings in the school? Dave is a clever mis- chief-maker, and is quite a hand at throwing erasers. .-X smile adorns his t'eatures,which are weathered to a lusty red, and he is usually the life of any gathering. His witty remarks have been the source of enjoyment to many. "Dave" maintains a tlevil-may-care attitude, and his utter disregard for conventionality also amuses us. Nevertheless, "Dave" is a hard worker and can hold his own with his classmates. TUSITALA MARION ALICE CAMPBELL "She lauglzrd, and ezfery heart was glad." It must be that Hudson is conducive to good nature-for Marion, who came from the little town over the river, was always just bubbling over with laughter. Evidently laughing-not at folks, but tuilh them-was her favorite pastime. What a joy it was to see her coming up the corridor with her cheerful smile-especially on days when an unexpected exam had most of us down in the dumps! We shall always remember her as one of the most friendly girls of our class. ISARBARA R. CAN'l"lIil.D "l"air is ziol fair, but that ztfliirlz flvasctlif' Barbara, or "Arabab," as some of us call her, is our conception of a real lady. Promi- nent in every activity of our school, willing to undertake each and every responsibility tendered her, we feel that she has done her full share, VVith inborn characteristics that are pleasing to all her classmates, Barbara has been a shining light of cheerfulness, thus aiding us afflicted ones, who were groping in despair at the enormity of our home work. Barbara's personality cannot be excelled. From the depth of our hearts, "Arabab," we wish you happiness and good fortune.

Play lVg Upper Fourth, Tusifnla Paragrapher. MARY A. CARON 'tOh, what a pal was Mary!" So that old-fashioned song goes. Mary was always "merry as the day is long," hardly ever looking rlowncast. And did Mary enjoy laughing and giggling? VVe should say she did! Her giggles created an epidemic. She had a broad smile and a ready "hello" for everybody. Mary loved the movies, and her extra time was often spent there. She was always willing to help a person who hadn't her homework done, and never expected any thanks. Mary was very popular with the girls that knew her best. TUSITALA g g f Vg Wg Iil.1z,x1siaTn .'hNNli'I"l'li Cmrrizn "The world loves ll quiet girl." Elizabeth is one of the large number of quiet and unobtrusive people in the class of 1930, but possessed of a very genial disposi- tion. Nearly all her friends have been asked to sign her large autograph album, "For," she explained, "you may become famous." So ol course we all unscrewed our fountain pens and wrote at line or two. She was an earnest worker in all her subjects, and thoroughly enjoyed class discussions. Nlay her persist- ence bring her future success. XIIRLEINIA CoL1.1Ns n,'it't'0l1'lflli511Cd?

Virginia certainly could "elocute"-you know that if you've ever heard her recite "Betty at the Baseball Game." Virginia was in a special chorus for "The Lucky Jade," thereby demonstrating her dancing and sing- ing ability. She belonged to Dramatics Club lll and IV, being Treasurer III. Oh yes, "Ginny" could do many things, and in addi- tion to all that, she knew how to wear clothes well. She was also Candy Girl for "Dulcy" l, on Junior Prom Committee III, and the Costume Committee IV. hl.XI'llli H. CUNNER 'A ...... lime frefiy Her bliixltitig tear, and' how she bluslfd again." Although Maude did not join us until her sophomore year, everyone soon knew and loved her, She had such a charming way and cheerful laugh you just couldn't help it. Klaude was equally popular with both the boys and the girls, and had a special liking for Blarmons. Her actixities were not nu- merous, but she was seen at nearly all the school dances and games. She was on the ticket committee for "The freaking Chair" IV. iff my v 'lfUSlTAl.A B'i.ANcni: E. Colnwiiuu "Blillzely over M'uul2le.r leafy Nwer llzraugli flzvm slowly urer'p." That must have lmeen l3lanche's motto, for cares and worries never at't'ected her in the least. lint, of course, a person as petite and Clever as Blanche could atiford to laugh at troulvles. Did anyone ever fail to succomli to her flashing smile and sparkling dark eyes? From her list ot' accomplishments we may draw our own conclusions: Refreshment Committee ,lnnior l'rom lg 'lnffler Reporter llg Physical Leader llg "Belle of liarcelonau lll: Candy Committee Senior l'lay IYQ "l'he Lucky jade" IX'-rememlwer I7anchon?g Typ- ist for 71t.Villlll1. .

Bledford's loss was Nashua's gain, for she soon heeame an es- teemed memher of our class. liveryliody grew to love Bertha with her smiling eyes, her gentle voice, and her genuine interest in everybody. You could always depend on Bertha for sympathy. lio you want to know what people mean lay sweet ?-look at Bertha. She also found time to he a leader in school activities. She was Chairman of the Candy Committee for Senior Play lVg Lunch Counter IV, llrill Leader IY, Tafller Reporter lYg Associate liditor i,iZl.t'lftlltl IYQ Class Yiee-President lX'g and on Upper lfourth. Rlenmcn Cizosnv " C'v.rt Il rife." "Dick" had a wonderful sense of humor, hest of all, he laughed at himself as much as at anyone else. He feared only two things, Miss l7owd's eagle eye, and lieing foreed to take the center seat in the assemlily hall. The aforementioned seat was undesirable liecanse he would have to sit lmeside one of the oppo- site sex, and this was the least of his inten- tions. He spent his spare time in the "A and I"' on Manchester Street, which may have been one reason why he "knew his onions." TUSITALA ELIZABETH WINIFRED DALY "Perseverd1zrc never failed To bring its own reward." Elizabeth was what we may term a "tran- sientf' She was with us her senior year only, and our only hope is that she enjoyed our noisy ways as much as we did her unob- trusive presence. Elizabeth did not hesitate when she was asked to do a favor, and this admirable quality did not lessen her popu- larity one whit. In fact, we know of but one enemy that she made-and that enemy is the old bug-bear of usall-English. VVe prophesy good success in all future enterprises. STEPHANIE IJANSEVICH "A friend fo all and a grand good sport." "Fanny" is the girl whom we rind in the ticket office of the State Theatre. She is just the right person for this position, for she al- ways has a smile and a friendly word for everyone. "Fanny" is always ready for fun and knows how to make it. She enjoys all kinds of sports, is a fine dancer, and very popular at dances. She was a member of the Home Economics Club during her Sophomore year. ALICE M. Dasvmiz "Her ways are ways of quietness." Alice was one of the quiet members of our class. VVe know that she was a conscientious worker and was always prepared with her lessons, because any morning if you came into Room 6, you would find her giving her les- sons the finishing touch. She is planning to train for a kindergarten teacher, and we know that her quiet ways will be sure to make her a success. She was a member of the Home Economics Club H and HI, and played on the Hockey Team I. TUSITALA VvAl.'l'liR NEWMAN Doorsv "No man if hi: frafff maner the jfrxt day." Walter was a young man who valued a good education- especially the manual arts part of one. Did you know he traveled from Hudson daily to attend school? Despite the fact that his curriculum gave him two hours of mechanics daily, "VValt" would find much additional enjoyment doctoring his old Ford on many an afternoon. "Walt" was never in had spirits, and has a smile for every one. He was an outstanding algebra-shark! "Walt" has his eye on Lynn General Electric and will, without a doubt, make good. His activities were: Stage Committee "The Creaking Chair" IV, "Lucky jade" IV, and Lunch Counter IV. hlARlE DUBRAY "Her life had many a hope and iaimf' Marie was one of those few girls that never forgot that old adage about being seen and not heard. Ever reserved and modest, she really delighted in sitting quietly by and studying. No one was surprised that her excellent marks won her sixth place in Upper Fourth, and we expect that she will attain even loftier hopes and aims in the future. We shall never forget Maries famous "invisible" handwriting! lt would take a lawyer to decipher it, and we guess, although we're not sure, that that is one reason she worked in a law ofhce her senior year. She was a member of Press Club her Senior Year, took part in a Health Play IV, and was a Tafflcr contributor. ELGIN DuMoNr "And some that .smile have in, their heart, I few, a million misrhief.v." Perhaps we should have suggested to Elgin in September that "gym" classes de- velop muscles. Then the teacher wouldn't have had to scold so often when he was obliged to come back: between periods for the books he wasn't strong enough to carry all at once. Nor would his fingers then have been too feeble to hold the cookies that settled themselves so mysteriously beside his desk after recess! "Joe," as he was known to his numerous friends, was a loyal football rooter. His ambition is to become an uaviator. He acted as usher at the grad- uation exercises last June and at the 1930 "A, A." Play. TUSITALAM lRVINl2 Liasus DUNCKLEE "Three may keep rx secret, If two of them are dead." "Dunk" was one of the few "sheiks" of Room Cm. He was very popular with the fairer sex, the reason for this being obvious when xi good look is taken at his "photo" "Dunk" was a happy-go-lucky fellow who took things as they came, good or bad, in the same manner. How he loved Shakes- peare! He was a member of Football Squad "A" his Senior year. "Dunk" enjoys shop work and hopes to advance in this field. He was an usher at "The Creaking Chair" IV. '1lHEREF-A F. DURAND "Here is 41, girl, a quiet and reserved one, ll'l1o lileex la read Ttllltlllf her ivorklv all done." Quietness was Theresa's outstandingchar- acteristic. lllness forced her to miss an en- tire year of school. When she re-entered as a member of 1930, we gladly greeted a shy classmate. The whole year long she went about her own affairs independently. Alucky few discovered her capacity for true friend- ship. Theresa won the Tattler prize for a Flag Creed l, and showed imagination in all her writing. Esrnm EATON "ll'illL good and gentle-huwlored hearts .. I rlzocme fu chat 'wl1,e1'e'er I come." There's really not much one need say about Esther-look at her activities. Our popular and much-read "johnny Fly" could talk about any topic at all, but her favorite subject was athletics.

He has what is known as a 'tpoker face," it being rather dillicult to tell exactly what is going on in his mind.

This girl won't need a "break" to make good, for she creates her own opportunities. Virgie has worked hard, both inside of school and out, and we know that if she retains. that spirit of persever- ance, nothing will faze her. Virgie was a mystery of Room 5. Although she seemed to us quiet and shy, "Dame Rumour" has it that a certain young man did not find her so. Never mind, Virgie. VVe kidded you a lot, but we're all wishing you the best luck ever. She assisted nohly in the typing of this class-book. I-IELIEN Form "Ours is a world of zvordxz Quiet tue fall 'Silenre'-zvlzirlz ix tllc n1r'ri'.vz word of all." Helen was one ot our auburn haired girls from across the river, never wasteful of her time-always found in her home room in the morning-busy at work. VVhen it Came to Shakespeare, we certainly were envious of the Way she could remember facts. Helen was one of our quiet girls, but it could be plainly seen that she was storing up all knowledge that would help her later. In fact, Hele11 was one of ourbrilliant members of the Upper Fourth. EDWIN A. FR.-xNcosU1z "It is the tranquil people who acromplish much." Edwin. was one of those rare persons-a consistently good student. He helped make up the small group who took Virgil. He proved to be another one of Mr. VVilson's standbys, playing violin in the Orchestra 1, ll, IH, and IV. Always well-mannered, this member of Upper Fourth went his way without intruding in the affairs of others. He showed good-taste in clothes, always he- ing neatly and stylishly dressed. Edwin plans to enter college next fall, Best wishes, Edwin! TUSITALA AMi:1.1A RUTH FRICLSNI "ll'li0sc little body lodged a mighty mind." Our diminutive Amelia was, in spite of her size, one of the most brilliant, witty, talkative, and affable among us. And she had friends galore! Reading books and writing were her pet hobbies. VVheu the con- versation turned to books, she left us all in the background. As for her writing, don'tbe surprised it in a few years you come upona book written byAmelia reviewed in theNew York Times. In the "Creaking Chair," she acted the dithcult role of the hysterical Anita Latter with poise and confidence. Let this list of activities complete the story: Tattler Reporter II, junior Literary Editor Ill, Editor-in-Chief lVg Ilramatics Club Secre- tary III, President IVg Debating Club IV: "Creaking Chair" IVQ Lunch Counter IYQ Tusitala Paragrapherg Class Historian IV, and of course Upper Fourth. ALIIIZRT Ntcsinr CLMSNON "My tongue ivitliin. my lips I rein, For who taller mush mart talk in vain." So thought "Al," of the crinkly, golden locks, for he never spoke unless spoken to. He was very shy, modest, and had little to do with the gentler sex. He possessed the merit of punctuality, and his classmates thought him indispensable. "Al" ushered at graduation III and the Senior Class Play IV, and was a member of the Independent Hockey Team IV. I'HY1.L1s XVANEATA GA1.i.1iP "A pal to all, and a grand good sport." "Phyl" looks like a quiet, lmashful lass,but don't let her looks deceive you. She certainly kept us cheery by her snappy jokes and stories, and remember the Health Play she wrote and directed so successfully? VVhat do you think? She actually enjoyed giving oral themes! Phyllis was well-liked, espe- cially by the ones that knew her best. She was an accomplishedpianist. Shealways knew her lessons well, and could be seen reviewing them at the last minute. "l'hyl" was on the Refreshment Committee for junior Prom Ig won the second prize in the Rumford Baking Powder Biscuit Contest llg also she was on Ring Committee IIQ served as Tattlcr Re- porter I and Ill, was a member of the Home Economics Club I, ll, in Press Club llg and an envied member ol' Upper Fourth. TUSITALA Eimiamz GAMACHE "Cl:oire word, and nzmzxured fvhrase Above Ihre rmrli of ordinary men." Edgar certainly could lie humorouswhen he wished. And could he write? He was talented, and showed his skill in writing stories for the 'l'affler. We predict a great future for Edgar as an author, He was one of two courageous lroys taking Qtlice Prac- tice in the senior year of the commercial course. lt is rumored that Edgar is a woman hater, luut we have our suspicions. His lit- erary talent came in useful in writing Para- graphs, as he was one ol' the "lsiog'raphers" of Room 5. X ,. ,xv ARTHUR EVANS GAY "The ll'Iez'lm11irul Zlfanf' Arthur was another one ofourmeehanical geniuses. N'Yhen he took a watch apart, he put it together so that it would run, without having any parts left over. He was very quiet, taking little part in school activities, but seemed to get his own private fun out of life. He was on the Property Committee of the 'freaking Chair," besides working lrack stage for this and several other plays given lly the school in the auditorium. E1.NouA GILBERT "She izewr .reennr the leaxt bit bored, 110 matter lmze she feels." Elnora was one of our quiet, shy, but pleasant comrades. Although she was silent and serious, she never seemed bored with our pranks and foolishness. Elnora seemed to like studying, because she could usually give the right answers. She did not par- ticipate in a long list of activities, but she certainly had the spirit if called upon. She played in the Mandolin Clulm her second year. . .- QUSIQQEN IIOROTIIY MM: G1.laAsoN "Tlwre way ti distance in her look 'lllral mode ns look again."

VVhy, oh why, did she have to he killed right alter the first act, though?

TUSITALA FRANCES H.NI.LlSPIY "I would rather be linle and Jlzin: Than ta be big ana :an zz Jhadowf' Frances had beautiful brown eyes, and how she used them! No wonder she was popular with the boys as well as with the girls. Frances always attended all the school dances with a certain somebody who was in Room 6. She made a cute little otlice girl last period. And what a sunny disposition she had! She always knew her lessons, and was. near the top on the Honor Roll. VX'e hear she is going to be a school teacher. VVhat a pleasant little pedagogue she'llmake. She was on the Junior Prom Committee Illg Tattler Secretary IV, a member of Press Club Ill, IVg and one ofour Class Prophets. VVARREN Aumuzv HAMMAR "ll'lien he becomes a man, he will not put away childish tlzirzgrf' VYarren, "Wild Bill," Hammaris our most playful, if not our most mischievous fellow. Since he was a very hard worker, we can't understand how he found time to frolic and play such pranks on his friends. During classes, Warren would often blurt out the most laugh-provoking answers or queries, causing an uproar, Although not exactly a ladies' man, VVarren is quite an enthusiastic dancer and has attended many alTairs of our school. VVarre,n did his share at the Lunch Counter, and- also was a cave man in the "Lucky Jade" IV, in addition to being a loyal member of the track team, ll, Ill, IV. AMY FRANCES HAMMOND "One univerxal grin." You seldom saw Amy when she was not wearing a happy grin. Amy would have been greatly missed if she had not taken law, because she could always be depended upon to add interest to that class. You could always tell when a test was coming, because then Amy would bring out her books. She wants to be an artist, and we know that she will be a success. She was a member of the Home Economics Club Il. VVe hope she will some day be able to satisfy her great desire to travel and see the world. C -T51 ESQ Rosie ELIZABETH HANSCOINI "Sometimes I .ril and think and .romerimvs I just sit." Remember all the cheers you gave under Betty's leadership IV, cheers that made your voice so hoarse? Wie could well be proud of our Cheer Leaders. "Betty" also lmlew the "Sax" in the Orchestra ll, III, and IV. CXVe ask ourselves Where the neighbors were when she practiced.j This activity prolmalmly accounted for her frequent excuses for not having her work done! Betty was also one of the jolly crowd that reported every other Tuesday afternoon for Dramatics Clulv III. ANITA Hiznrnzlrr "And her -modest answer and graceful air Show her wise and good as she ir fair." VK'hat would a football game have been without Anita sitting on the side lines, cheering lustily for Nashua High? Not only was she a good supporter of the school team but a Drill Leader II, Ill, and IV, on the Ring Committee II. and a member of thc candy committee at the Senior Play IV. VVe should think that people would be rather timid about taking 'Nita out in their ma- chines, for she seems to be unlucky when it comes to auto accidents-or perhaps you might say lucky, as we're glad to say she has always lived to tell the tale. VVn.i.1AM SMALL Hennmzr "Little heads may contain Vllllfh learning." NN'illiam was one of our smallest, quietest, and steadiest boys. His steady halmits char- acterized all his work lmoth in school and ont. One hardly ever heard "Bill" speak, hut when he did talk, he said something worth knowing. Such alad's friendship was sought and cherished hy his classmates, and he had a personality that invited good feeling and friendship. TUSITALA Ronmi' VV.

That was Edith. ln German class, how we did love to hear her hearty laugh! lt is for this reason that lidith has so many friends, and also because she is a good student. Vve all envied the way she couldtranslate German. Edith surely could write, too, as was shown by the fact that she helped write the Class VVill, was a member of the Press Club, a member of the Taffler Staff, and a Tusitala Paragrapher. Sihe was also a Drill Leader II, and, last but not least, she was in the Upper Fourth of our class. Best o' luck to you, Edith. Bicvi:1u.v VYIRIQINIA Hoon "Gentle, faithful, true." These three words describe Beverly per- fectly. She was a girl on whom you could depend. To most of her classmates she ap- peared very quiet, but any of her closer friends can tell you how much fun she really is. Her Health Play evidenced both her literary leanings and her interest in dental nursing. Her steady industry won her a place in the Upper Fourth. Next year she is planning to go to the Lowell Normal School, and we know that she will make a Hue teacher. , TUSITALA HRtlNISl.OW S, Huk 'X "I lzrwe uiarked a f11'Jll.Y!1Ild hluslzes .Ylurl info his 1',ll'l'kU "Brownie" is the lmoy who commutes from Hudson Centre.

Shirley always did everything in a most leisurely manner. Can you imagine her ever hurrying to anything? Almost any morning she could be found studying Math in Room 1. Shirley was very fond of reading as was shown in her hook-reviews published in the Ttzttler. Her hobby in fact seemed to be keeping up with the newest books and inter- esting us with her appreciative comments. She was a valued member of the orchestra during her four years of high school. SAMUEL MAX KAMENSKY "llf'l1y zt'0r1'y?" How can we ever forget "Sam!" He was a chap whose ready wit made everyone around him feel gay. He was a great prac- tical joker. lNe do not imagine him as hav- ing heen a very studious boy, yet he seemed to get by successfully. "Sam" never, it seems, grew angry at anyone or anything. He always had a ready smile and cheery word for everyone. VVe feel certain that "Sarn's" cheerful disposition will find aplace in the hearts of his business colleagues in future life, as it did in those of his class- mates. ALFRED JULIAN LAJOIE "Hail Ihe Toreadorf' Alfred was the bold, bad bull-tosser in "The Belle of Barcelona" III, and has been known as "Emilio" ever since. He was a musical chap, too. He played a baritone horn in the Boys' Band and the Orchestra IV. He sang in two A. A. plays, and contributed Egyptian atmosphere with a chant off stage in the 'freaking Chair." He is an easy-going chap who came in for a lot of kidding, but he had plenty of spirit which won him many friends-not all boys.

Indeed, jerry spent most of his time on the tennis courts issuing challenges to anyone who would accept them. He was a source of continual amusement to his classmates Ime- cause of his witty conversation. He was a member of the Debating Club Ill and IV, and a clever artist for Tzmitrilii. PAUL LA BIARCHIC .

Felix was quiet, pleasant, and courteous, yet always ready for a little fun, He was a reg'lar wizard in history. His class will always remember Felix as the military question liox. His interest in the sulnjeet was gained while under the super- vision of Mr. Lawrence. He was a memlwer of the Upper Fourth, but We weren't sur- prised. Felix was on the Track Team III and became Manager IV. He was on the ,Iunior Prom Committee III, and made a pleasing usher at the Senior Play.

His words could he relied upon to he statements of facts and not just guesses. He was a prom- inent attendant oi' the school dances, much to the enjoyment of the fairer sex. We are sure that some day he will occupy a prom- inent place in the lvusiness world.

Late hours do not help any one as far as school work is concerned, but "Ray" never seemed to have much to worry about.

Harry speaks little, but when called upon, he bursts into words and phrases which compel our atten- tion. Neatness in dress, and in whatever work he does is another trait in Harry's character. Having in him qualities which urge him to accept all requests, he has done his bit toward helping out his class and school, such as being in two A. A, plays and also being: 'llzitlw' Reporter IV.

Wanda was on Traffic Duty 1, played in Orchestra II, and was in the art play "Through the Picture Frame" Ill. Her persistence will Win her success in life, we know. GLADYS ELLA AIAKER "I d01z't know." Shall we ever forget tearful "Rose Emily NX'inch" of our Senior play, "The Creaking Chair?" Impossible! And of course it's to that that the above quotation applies, for Gladys was noted for her splendid recitations and for her ability at all times to express herself in the most lucid terms.

Couldn't she be seen at all school activities? She never missed a football game-or dance, and how well she danced! "Milly" belonged to the Home Economics Club ll. f 7 5' L7IA:x-3'1'H RUF "Clzcerfulnex ix the .vzmny my of life."

To be Sure she disliked a few things, such as high heels and her Ford, and she was entirely indifferent to boys. Camille always thought that the teachers were most cruel to give us so much homework-espe- cially in Latin. Our "Camelia" Qpage Miss Brownj belonged to Dramatics Club III, was on the Lunch Counter and Properties Committee for Senior Play IVQ was one of the Paragraphers for this book, and high on Upper Fourth. CHARLEs STANLEY SAKOWICH 'tOlz, how I love Io get up in the morning." "Charley,' is the one We have to thank for the milk we drink, or should drink, each morning before we come to school. His face was usually red, or at least a pale pink, from blushing at the remarks made by Miss Dowd and "Nezzie" regarding his ability to get up at 3 A. M. each day to deliver milk, a11d still get to school on time and hold down Number 4 position in the Upper Fourth. Equally to his dismay, the girls thought he was "cute" and often expressed a desire to "pinch his cheeks." In spite of his early morning labors, he found time to work on the stage settings of several plays, to usher at the Senior play, write the class Athletic History for Turimla, and also Paragraphs. Geouoe Msssifiz SHATTUCK "G1'eatne.r.r knows itself." Messer was one of the most popular boys of Room 6. Can any one forget the manner in which he taught history on three occa- sions? Because he worked afternoons, Messer never had much time for outside activities. He was, however, an usher at "The Creaking Chair." Messer liked mechan- ics and someday hopes to break into aviation. Always smiling at hard luck and pluggingon, he has the qualities to succeed. He was a member of the Hklanual Arts Squadronn for four years, gaining much mechanical knowl- edge. On April first, when "Nezzie" read out "George Shattuck" among the lucky "Upper Fourthersf' greatness didlft know itself, for Messer apparently thought it Ivins' an April Fool and had to be persuaded to take his rightful place.

"Les" was a quiet sort of a fellow who went around with a twinkle in his eyes. He was admired by the female members of the class for his "most gorgeous blush." "Les" was studious, winning good marks in all of his subjects, and placing high on the Upper Fourth. Mathematics was his specialty. The harder the problem to be solved, the more eager he was to try it. He loved to experi- ment, and if you were in the "lab" when he was there, you would undoubtedly see him using test tubes and scales of intricate de- sign. XX'e are quite sure that some day he will be one of the Nation's greatest scientists. 1'E'1'ER SIMsi:s "'1'lzere'.v .rimxlzinv in earh word he .rpeak.r." Peter certainly surprised tis by his fine portrayal of the bold blustering'AOliver Hart, Inspector" in the 'freaking Chair." He was a perfect detective with his derby, loud clothing, and irate swearing. The way he ordered poor "Henley" about was enough to keep permanent grins on the faces of the audience. Peter had previously used his act- ing ability in a French play during Sopho- more year. Because he took six subjects Senior Year, he sometimes forgot CPD to do some of the assignments. ln spite of this fact, one never saw him without a beaming countenance, nor did he lose the respect of his teachers. XVe wish him success at college next fall. TUSITALA LUCILLE SMITH "A .fweet little, neat little, pfiite little fain." These words are certainly a good descrip- tion of Lucille. The most notable thingabout her was her quietness. She is not always quiet, though, as her friends can vouch, for seen at a football game she is one of the most lively persons there. Lucille was a Tat- tler Reporter during her Freshman year and a pretty little dancer at the Art Club Play of 'Z9. Lucille's specialty was Art. She has drawn very many good pictures, among them a Taftler cover. We understand that Lucille intends to take up Art for a profes- sion, and we wish her the greatest success in it. VVILFORD SMITH "A good mime ix befter than 1'z'rl1e.v." His hair was curly, and he was handsome. That should be enough, but the strangest part of it was that "Smitty" gave none of the girls any of his time. He was one of our busiest boys, working every afternoon of his school career in a machine shop, and making quite a name for himself in that line of work. His ambition deserves much credit, and we hope he'll succeed in life as well as he has in school, aided by his unfailing perseverance. VVAl.'l'l'IR S. S1-AULDlNn "" "Laugh and the world laughs with you." "General," as he was called by his friends, was a most remarkable and likable chap. He was always bubbling over with fun. NYhether at work or at play, he always had a joke ready to spring at an opportune mo- ment. Not a minute passed but he was into some sort of mischief. We all remember him as the boy with the largest number of ex- cuses for getting out of class. COne who had seen the interior of his desk would think that he was keeping a collection of excuses written by the various teachersj ln spite of his joking, "General" was an active partic- ipant in affairs of the school: Tattler Rc- porter ll, Baseball Ill, IVQ Hockey Team Ill, lYg Boys' Band IV. ee i i I THSLTQEA IEVNICI-I ELEANOR SPRINIQ "ll'l1u oflen readx will .ronietinies tvixli to 'IU1'lll'.n Eleanor was one of our most literary classmates.

Eleanor seemed to be a bit reserved, but when you knew her, what good company she could bel She had a most delightful sense of humor which was always appearing at the most un- expected moments.

He was a skilled actor and played parts of varying types, notably Edwin Latter in "The freak- ing Chair" IV. Iiveryone envied his ability as a speaker, and it was only natural that we should choose him as our Orator. 1-Ie upheld the reputation of the masculine portion of the class by placing third in Upper Fourth, and in addition held many responsible posi- tions during the four years: TaHli'r Reporter I, llg Assistant Business Manager III, Cir- culation Klanager IVg Assistant Manager Football III, Manager IV, Vice-President Ilebating' Club Ill, I'resident IV.

Nothing seemed to bother Ann, no matter when said or how, for she had a great fuud of good-humor. She seemed always to take things as a matter of fact, but probably had her own ideas about them. Ann has been one of our lovers of books, Xthcre did we ever see her without a book and a smile? Not often to be sure. VVe can't forget those dark brown eyes that were always alert for mischief. She was an active- member of the Home Economics Club II, III, IV, and went out for the Field Hockey Squad I, LIIUSITALA gg gig M JOSEPH STANLEY SULLIVAN "True as .vtevl and fine as gold." "joe" has played on fields of glory for Nashua High. He has given his strength and speed to conquests in three major sports, football, baseball, and basketball. In any athletic endeavor he has proven himself to be capable. Gifted with a body of massive strength and a frame seemingly of steel, he has found few to surpass him in positions that he has had. VVith all his athletic abil- ity, he is a modest and unassuming youth, having loads of friends, and is a person who seldom fiares up to anger. In his four years at our school he has been proficient in studies-witness his place on the Upper Fourth4as well as versatile in sports, thus being a mighty asset to this, our institution.

If noise was to be had, Margaret was there. She liked good times and could cheer up a person by smiling at him. Consequently she was full of giggles, but very serious if there was a slight "pop" at the Chemistry lab. We don't exactly blame her! Margarefs wee voice was hard to hear in class, but not outside. She certainly wasn't afraid of her classmates, we hope. She is another one of our girls who is interested in hospital training. RICHARD P. Swmtrsmz "Oh, Holly!" "Dick" was a most likable chap, always busy but full of fun. His well-developed body evidences his interest in physical exer- cise of all kinds. Better late than never, "Dick" was there, but invariably a few mo- ments tardy. Here, there, everywhere all in one breath, "Dick" was always in a hurry. Because his dramatic ability won him a part in every play that the school put on, not mentioning the numerous outside plays, "Dick" was known as "Angus Holly" in the senior corridorg and throughout the school as the 'lColonel," "Holly," or our "English gentleman of leisure." His activities are as follows: Boys' Band IV: Orchestra IV, 'freaking Chair" IV, "The Lucky jade," A. A. Play IV, F TUSITALA Uo1.icsl.,xu TAMULIEVICH "fl great mark ix .vomzexf hit."

One of her pet hobbies was reading. Alice was carefree and happy, but she knew when to be serious. Shall we ever forget the teacher saying, "Speak louder, please?"

We hope Lady Luck will accompany her in all her future undertakings, TUSITALA BEATRICE IRENE TANGUAY "Her wryfrozvm were fairer far Than .rmilfi Mather maidem au!" lf ever there was a young lady who had school spirit, Beatrice was the one. She could always he located at any contest or dance run by the school. Throughout her four years, we doubt if she missed a dance. As for athletic contests, the times were very rare when she was not in the bleachers at the common, cheering herself hoarse. Beatrice was always light-hearted, never seeming to have any trouble to Worry over. She was active in school affairs as the list shows: A. A. Play ll, Lunch Counter lll, Drill Leader IV.

ELIZABETH TSIANTAS ".S'leuder, grarioux Beautifully g01c'ned." Elizabeth was one of those quiet individ- uals who, with a shy charm, won the hearts of her classmates. She had a habit of avoiding too friendly relations, and but few penetrated to the "real" girl. We shall espe- cially remember Elizabeth for her exquisite clothes, and for the lustrous dark hair that was never bobbed. Another unforgettable thing about Elizabeth was her "Mona Liza" smile, which put her "Behind the Picture Frame" in the Art Club Play Ill. We know, too, that Elizabeth was a large factor in the selling of candy at the Senior Play lV. She helped type the Tusilala and was one of the deserving on the Upper Fourth.

The members of this queer Collection were acting strangely: their knees 'were knocking, their hands Huttered nervously about, their fingernails were chewed-looking, their eyes were large, watery, and bloodshot, their shoulders sagged, and they spoke in hushed, frightened whispers-yes, you've guessed it-they were freshmen. Oh, the suffering those poor freshmen had to undergo that year! A more sophisticated looking few of them were asked to join the Sopho- more-Freshman Debating Club. Debating on such subjects as divorce and capital punishment developed them mentally and in worldly wisdom. Most of the freshmen, however, although they probably did not recognize the ailment, "inferiority complex," when they read of it, were living examples of the malady. When the afore-mentioned group again returned to the school the next fall, they wore their titles of "Sophomores" with apparent pride and bewilderment at their own importance Cthey were quite sure that they were importantj. One memorable event took place that year-class rings were chosen. Whenever a person could be seen waving his hands about, .one knew that it was a sophomore trying to show the world that he had a new ring, A goodly share of the sophomores attended all the stag dances and proms that year, and thus they received training for their now perfect dancing. The next year was important. juniors. Well, time did Hy- here they were juniors, now an essential part of the school and its social life. Their debut occurred one stormy night in January, and one beautiful April night, the most brilliant event of the year, the junior Prom, danced in. Is there any need to say that the boys looked just too handsome for words? And the girls-oh, those ns TUSITALA M girls! At the very head of the grand march were the officers, a fine-looking quartet, "Joe" Leslie, "Kitty" Rees, Hjimmyu Rock, and "Barb" Canfield. Then, in the fall of 1929 the same group returned, fewer perhaps, but somewhat confident, self-reliant, and ambitious- they were seniors. Will they ever forget their first assembly as seniors? The officers who led the line of marching dignitaries this year were: George Tebbetts, the three letter athlete with the in- fectious gring Bertha Cornwall, sweet, gracious Bertha of the high ideals, Gordon Leslie, the ever popular, ever likable "joe", Louise Paige of the low, gentle voice and the kind, considerate manner. The Senior Dance opened the social season-and a good open- ing it was, too. The Senior Play was-is it permissible to say?- a screaming and shooting success? "The Creaking Chair" was a departure from the type of play given recently and provided enough thrills to satisfy any audience. Around about the last of February, the senior corridor buzzed with queries of, "Have you had your pictures taken? Where are you going? Aren't my proofs terrible? Are the Milford photogra- phers better than the ones in Nashua ?" The important and hard working Tusitala staff had been elected-a good staff chosen by a good class. ''Jimmy-always-in-a-hurry" was editorg and he car- ried his honors liglitly and his cares heavily. Then, on April Fool's Day, no less, came that fateful assem- bly. Upper Fourth! What a brilliant valedictorian, what an elo- quent orator, what imaginative, talented prophets ! What a fortunate class! Another assembly, gayer for everyone, occurred in May. The seniors marched in, attired in their new costumes, and talk about lilies of the field arrayed in gloryl One spring morning harassed, sleepy looking members of the senior class walked into a proctored room to write about fishes and bugs and trees and governors of New Hampshire. The Dodge prize might be worth trying for, but it was a wearing strain on the writers. Another day classes were dismissed early. Ten Noyes speak- ers were going to "strut their stuff." They showed no nervousness whatever, and they came through like true 1930-ers. Then, all weariness was forgotten. The reason P-Senior Prom, of course-a joyful, yet sad affair. And now we come to the present, the very latest present. Here, as we sit at our banquet, is read our chronicle, our history, the story of us. AMELIA FREGN1. 7 TUblTALA I Wu 69 FOOTBALL TEAM, 1930 Athletics 1930 has participated in its last game for the dear old purple. What a part it has played! There will certainly be many vacancies that will be hard to till. The class record in Nashua High Athle- tics is now history-history to be proud of, for was not 1930 in the tight right along, even from freshman days? Upon the arrival of football season during 1926, "Bouncer" Tamelevich, "Joe" Sullivan and "joe" Ackstin responded to the call. Despite their Herculean efforts, the season was a poor one. Every game was lost, excepting two scoreless ties, and not a point was scored. The purple partly redeemed itself, however, by hold- ing our brilliant rival, Meriden, to a twelve to nothing score. The experience that the "gridders" received, however, served them well, as the following year they turned in an almost perfect record. Football over, basketball made its entrance, and as always has been the case, 1930 contributed its share of athletes. "llouncer" and "Joe" Sullivan were its representatives and played a big part in sending the purple to Durham. As Manchester happened to have a better team, Nashua's quest for honors ended in the first round. The regular season was a success, for Nashua won most of its games. The baseball season was spotted with many victoriesas against few defeats. "Johnny" Malay, our present captain, and "l1ird" 70 g TUSITALA gg Tebbetts performed admirably. Track seemed to be the only sport in which 1930 did not have success. Balukonis, however, captured one point in the Inter- Class Meet, though that was all. Our sophomore year showed a tremendous improvement over 1926 as far as football was concerned. Concord with a 12 to 0 win spoiled the purple's chance for a clean slate and possibly un- disputed state honors. The purple swept everything else in sight, beating such teams as Lowell, Beverly, Revere, Swampscott, Gardner, and ending up with a splendid victory over our tradi- tional rival, Meriden. 'joel' Sullivan, "Bouncer," and "joe" Ack- stin kept up their good work. In addition Hjannyl' Narkunas and l'joe" Leslie became members of the team and acquitted them- selves in fine style. The purple started in where it left oFf in football, the winter of '23, and had a fine season in basketball. Again Nashua swept everything before it and earned the right to go to the tournament. Berlin that year proved to be the purple's stumbling block, winning 33 to ZS in the first round. Berlin later proved to be the state champion. "Bouncer," "Joe" Sullivan, f'Janny" Narkunas, and "Bird" Tebbetts played important roles throughout the season. The baseball season was a success, as usually is the case. "Johnny" Malay, "Bird" Tebbetts, and "janny" Narkunas were again 1930 mainstays. There was no official track team our sophomore year, but an independent one, representing the purple in the Durham Meet, 1 ' - .'-Lf ,agr- BASKETBALL TEAM, 1930 ,W .. .mn--'ww -1 - k g TUSITALA 71 took third place. This was an achievement of which the track enthusiasts could well be proud. The football team of 1928 duplicated the record of its pre- decessor, only instead of losing to Concord, which was trounced to the tune of 50 to 0, it lost to Lowell. The score was seven to six, mainly thnough some unlucky breaks. 1930 formed the lion's share of this team. "Baker" Wolfson, 'fIoe" Lee, and "Shimky" Lewkowicz joined the ranks of the football warriors, and our vet- erans played their usual brilliant game, as the record turned in shows. The basketball season was not on a par with the 'previous ones. Hollis provided exciting opposition toward the purple's right to go to Durham, but in the third and deciding game, the purple won out by a margin of one basket. The tournament saw a victory chalked up for the purple, but later Portsmouth beat us in a close game, and then won the title. "Bouncer" Tamelevich, our great all around athlete, captained the team. This proved to be his last year of basketball for the purple, as the following season he became over age. Nashua easily took the state baseball championship by deci- sively whipping Concord twice. Lowell was the only team to administer two defeats to the purple. "Bouncer," who made his debut as a ballplayer, held down first base in fine style throughout the season. In the Inter-Class Track Meet we landed third place. Balu- konis, Hammar, and Wolfson took first places in their events. With "Bouncer" leading the purple .on the gridiron last fall, Nashua won the state championship, though Manchester disputed its claim. Nashua, to prove its right to the title, challenged Man- chester for a post-season game, but the two schools could not come to an agreement. Everett and Lynn English were the only teams to have the distinction of defeating the purple. As these two games were the opening ones, the defeats may be laid to the fact that the purple was not as yet hitting on all four cylinders. Lowell was vanquished by a 13 to 0 score, thereby avenging the previous year's defeat. Lowell had previously 'beaten Manchester. In the Revere game, the purple covered itself with glory, as it van- quished the foe by a 20 to 0 score. "Bouncer" Tamelevich, "Joe" Sullivan, "Bird" Tebbetts, "Joe" Leslie, "Baker" Wolfson, "Ianny" Narkunas, "Joe" Ackstin, "joe" Lee, and Duncklee par- ticipated for the purple for the last time. 1930 had played its last game on the gridiron! Our basketball year was also a success. As usual we won the right to compete in the tournament at Durham by soundly beating our district rivals. We also made the greatest headway of any team to represent us in this sport the last four years, by winning 72 TUSITALA ,Wig gg gg, ma our way into the finals. West High of Manchester beat us out in a hard fought game by a 14 to 12 score, and thus at the last mo- ment took away from us the chance of being champs. "joe" Sul- livan upheld the name of 1930, as he was the only senior on the regular team. At the time of writing, it looks very evident that our baseball team is due for another championship. "Bird" Tebbetts and "johnny" Malay, our captain, and "Janny" Narkunas look forward to a great year, "Joe" Sullivan is ready for duty and Spaulding, a newcomer, is due to break into the line-up any time. The final, game with Concord will witness the passing of a great array of athletes. Track is once more taking a large part in Nashua High athletics. The team will see the passing of such performers as "Baker" Wolfson, 'KJ'ohnny" Balukonis, and Warren Hammar. With the coming of graduation their feet will fly no more for the dear old purple! 1930 wishes to extend its thanks to the coaches, who so skill- fully developed the teams that carried the purple to victory. The records turned in show that their efforts were not in vain. Coach Pendleton and his assistants, "Hemi" llarker and "Tom" Har- graves, could not have done a better job in the line of football. Coach Pendleton also guided the destinies of the haselmall and bas- ketball teams. Mr. NVhite took care of the track team in hue style. The purple may well be proud to have had these mentors, and without a doubt the following purple teams will turn in impres- sive records. CuARLEs SAKow1c1I.

Shortly after this it h11ppened! Vlfhati VVhy! The murder of Mrs. Carruthers. Yes! After the most complicated situation had developed, this murder was committed! Remember how everyone of the Latter household had openly expressed the desire to kill lileanor? It took two whole acts to tind out who did it, hut tinally Philip Speed confessed. My! VVasn't everyone surprised? Our first suspicions were east on lissai Aissa, the victim's ligyptian servant. He was really W'allaee Taylor, looking dark and dangerous, and oh. how suspicious! Nobody rested C'21Sllj' while he w11s around, especially Mrs. l.atter. Poor Amelia Fregni! lJidn't everyone's heart go out to the poor frail child-wife who VVZIS so fearful of ligypt? She w11s so nervous and highly-excitable. in fact, that many helieved she might have killed the woman she h11d found making love to her husband. Yes, Dorothy Gleason, 11s that wicked woman, lfleanor Car- ruthers, caused all this trouhle. She w11s ll delicious vamp, Zlllil we didn't see her half long enough. Still, she eaused plenty of trouhle 74 TUSITALA to last us for one evening. Kathryn Rees, as lovely Sylvia Latter, owed Eleanorabridge debt, and she had no way to pay it. Rather than have her father find this out, she told Jimmy Rock she'd like to see her de-btor dead. We forgot a whole lot of these thoughts of Sylvia when We saw how implicitly John Cutting trusted her. James Rock was an ideal lover in this role. Still, we even suspected him, when he escaped out of his bedroom window. We found out later he did this trying no get in touch with his paper, even though his host, Edwin Latter, had asked him, as a favor, to stay. Carl Stratton, as a crippled archaeologist, inawheelchair, had us guessing whether he could walk or not. We were sure we had seen someone with his plaid steamer rug around his shoulders. That turned out to be the supposed doctor, who had been called to watch Anita Latter, his wife. During all this breath-taking mystery, Rose Emily Winch and Angus Holly, the maid and butler respectively, kept the audi- ence interested in their love affair. Gladys Maker, as Rose, with her squeals and moans, entertained an appreciative audience. She was so afraid of losing Holly fRichard Sweetserj she even fol- lowed him to the victim's house. And to top it all, she admitted the fact in front of the detectives! Ah, the detectives! Weren't they an efficient trio? They were headed by Oliver Hart, really Peter Simses, who bullied everyone. He was ably UQ assisted by john Cameron, or Henley, who pro- voked a laugh every time he opened his mouth to utter, "That's so, chief-no use sayin' 'tain't." Then Robert Hoitt, as Bates, didn't say much, but he accomplished more with his running around, than the other two. About 10:30 We found out fwithout the aid of these efficient menj that it wasn't the dark Egyptian, nor nerwous Anita, not Rose Emily who "didn't know" anything, nor her close-mouthed lover Hollyg not Edwin Latter, who really was going to be cured, nor his daughter Sylvia, nor her lover who teased the detectives so, but instead John's loyal friend and co-worker. Yes, Leonard March was the villain! He had committed a cold-blooded murder -but still, the whole audience was won to his side by his eloquent speech about his sacred dead. In fact-we don't think any young- sters in the audience decided that night to become archaeologists. The performance was a great success, and every member of the cast did equal justice to his or her part. And this play was different. Miss Cornell deserves the hearty thanks of the entire class for her very capable work as a coach. Don't forget, anyone, it was the first she'd ever done alone--and we think it was the best one ever given! MARY V. 0'LEARY. TUSITALA 75 Se? ,ii Ng a . i ll ll W lh fl We, the members of the class of 1930, of the Nashua High School, City of Nashua, County of Hillsboro, State of New Hampshire, United States of America, being in a. comparatively sane state of mind and memory, do hereby declare the following as our last will and testament. We bequeath the following: First: To Mr. Noyes and the Board of Education the exclu- sive right to appoint more good-looking men teachers for the Senior girls to admire. Second: To our faithful skipper, "Nezzie,"amechanical chin and cheek massagerg also a robot which will answer all 'phone calls after cards come out. This will repeat the words, "He needs more home study." Third: To Cheney E. Lawrence, innumerable sample cans of shoe polish to be distributed to the pupils of his physics class each and every year. Fouwhz To "Uncle Billy" Canfield, a new math. book inter- spersed with jokes-old and new-funny and otherwise-to be used on days when his own supply is exhausted. Fifth: To W. W. White, an automatic window-closer, so that his pupils will not freeze to death, while trying to absorb the principles of American history. Sixth: To Miss Brown, a sum of money to beused in polish- ing the surface of her desk. This has become a necessity because of the many tappings thereon with her pencil. 76 - g TUSITALA p Seventh: To Miss Dowd, a class which will not sit on desks nor put feet in chairs, who say 'fthank you" and "yes, ma'am," and who do not walk with hands in pockets. Eighth: To Miss Barnes, a collection of rare Latin manu- scripts. She may discover these by doing a little excavating near the band stand at Greeley Park. Ninth: To Mr. Kempton, a fire-and-explosion-proof cover- ing for that indispensable mustache which he wears for the main purpose of filtering and purifying all gases and fumes which he inhales. Tenth: To Miss Sullivan, copies of a new textbook which will not unduly excite the Senior boys. Eleventh: To Mrs. Nesmith, we leave another Marie, who will successfully run her mimeograph. Twelfth: To Miss Cramer, an appointment as chief surgeon in a theme-hospital. Thirteenth: To Mr. Pendleton, a supply of finger-nail grow- er, a generous amount to be applied before each game. This will give him something to gnaw when excited or nervous. Fourteenth: To Miss Cornell, the privilege of succeeding, in the talkies, Greta Garbo, our well-known emotional actress. Fifteenth: To Miss Doe, a pair of springing heels, so that she may bounce within reach of the top shelves of the library. Sixteenth: To Mr. Wilson, a megaphone so that we may know whether he wishes us to play, to sing, or laugh at a joke. Seventeenth: To Miss Genevieve Campbell the right to change detention to ten minutes for those that "have to be at work at two o'clock." Eighteenth: To Miss Ruth Hills, one volume of Misinforma- tion in Physiology, the material for which will be found among the answers to the various exams she has given this year. Nineteenth: To Miss McGlynn the sweet UQ remembrance of her first class. Also all the spitballs she picked from the ceil- ing during our freshman year. Twentieth: To Miss Sanborn, a portable garage for her Ford. Twenty-first: To our faithful custodian, a supply of the "milk of human kindness," a quart of which he is to drink each morning before school. Here, on this fourteenth day of February fValentine's Day, in case of doubtj we demand that this document not be read until june l9, 1930, when all the bereaved will be present.

H. S., were employed by the government to take the census, having been chosen as persons prominent in the Social Register and well qualified to converse with the more important citizens on their own plane. Since their experiences were of in- terest to all of us, they have condescended to be with us tonight and to enlarge upon them in person. Census employees, however, must not divulge any information they obtain to other than au- thorized agentsg therefore, what follows is strictly confidential. PART I As I proceeded up a well-known street in Nashua, in going about my duty of taking the census, I came upon a house of a very pretentious exterior. Can you imagine my surprise when in answer to the bell be- fore me stood charming Ann Sullivan, my old schoolmate? She recognized me and invited me in, whereupon I informed her of my mission, that of gathering statistics for the government. I registered more surprise when she informed me that her husband was none other than my old pal "'lanny" Narkunas. "'Ianny" was a contractor, and was now engaged in building a gigantic sky- scraper on old High Street. I always expected big things of "fanny," Ann was in a talkative mood, and I wasn't pressed for time, therefore I questioned her about the doings and whereabouts of our former class members. I learned from her the following abundant news. - TUSITALA Sl Helen Ford, because of her vast knowledge and common sense, was now at the head of a School of Psychology in Litchfield. Elizabeth Daly was now the owner of a large beauty shop on Main Street and specialized in face-lifting which Nashua ma- trons were sadly in need of. Philip McLaughlin had recently become a candidate for Sen- ator, and would eventually outshine the former Senator Moses. George Tebbetts had attained his life's ambition, that of being the back-stop for the Nashua Reliables. He had just recently en- trained for the South for spring practice. Miriam Phippard was a writer whose books sold like wildfire. The Patriotic Pineapple was her masterpiece in fiction. This book was published in- forty-seven different languages. Helen Baranoski had become a radio announcer, and her voice was familiar to all radio listeners through the eloquent way she expounded the theory that mustard was stronger than horse- radish. John Neville was the proud owner of the largest clothing emporium in Nashua. He also acted in the capacity of illustrating what the well-dressed man should wear. Lucy Varney had heeded the call of the wild and was at present hunting for a species of the rare Antipolocus-Kaskigius in the Amazon region. Wanda Lyszczas had wandered off into Siberia to learn the whereabouts of Trotsky, the former Russian statesman, in order to interview him. She was in the employ of the foremost news- paper in Nashua. George Panagoulis was now the most expert barber in town and recently had been elected president of the New England Bar- bers' Confederation. His shop was adorned by trophies of all kinds which he had won in shaving contests. Paul O'Neil had become a firm believer in evolution, and had gone to Africa to trace his ancestry. Andrew Pollack was a wrestler of great fame, having downed the invincible Krakowitz of Poland in a bout that had astounded thousands of onlookers. Dame Fortune smiles at him. joseph Sullivan had responded to the call to arms, and was now operating a munition factory in Eastern Siam. American. in- terests were being well protected by our "joe" - Elizabeth Tsiantas had become a widely known figure in the world of art. It was she who first proposed a museum in our city, which proposal had been readily accepted. Celia Wolfson foretold the future and her book, The Future -Told in Story Bold, had met with great success. fAnn was quite a talker, believe rne, but my interest was un- abated and I continued to listen, at the expense of my work.j 82 TUSITALA Leslie Shunaman was in the scientific Held of endeavor. Dis- covering a process for prolonging the life of rusty fish-hooks, Leslie had obtained success. Through his perseverance and ability to find hidden scientific secrets, he had been a great aid to fisher- men. Helen Stapanon had become an advocate of the Red Cross and persuaded many a young lady to aid the afflicted in China. She was stationed in Nashua, where she was a prominent figure in social circles. Mildred Birchall, from our unassuming and quiet girl, had beeome a much-discussed figure because of her doings on Nashua's Broadway. She was the owner of the best equipped cabaret on the Daniel Webster Highway. - Helene and Mary Phippard were leaders in the Anti-Smoking campaign. They preached that smoking had .overpowered the in- tellects of the world, and was a detriment to any civilized nation. Myron Wolfson had realized success in the athletic field of accomplishment, and was already classed as a second Charley Paddock. joseph Lee was in the movies. He had thus far, through his good looks and realistic acting, overwhelmed the popularity that was once that of Adolphe Mahjong. In fact, "Joe" was at present the most idolized actor in the world. Andrew McCaugney, quiet Andrew, was a pugilist, in other words a "pug,', who was making quite a little money in the ring. I never would have thought that of "Mack," despite his intense interest in all sports. James McAlpine was a prosperous promoter of sports, having first made a fortune in the real estate business. The Annual Boat Race on the Merrimack financed by "jim" was a source of pleas- ure to many. Una Brooks had become a singer of great renown. The Brooks School of Music in Nashua was named such as a mark of esteem to Una, the noted soprano. Edward Moran had overcome his former indifference, and was now an ambitious big butter and egg man in the financial world, Eddie was as yet unmarried, but there were many ready to grab him at the slightest sign of weakening. Opposite Greeley Park, Elizabeth Carter had just opened a school of dancing attended by students from all parts of the world attracted by reports of her unfailing good nature. Stanley Lewkowicz had become the Eastern United States Billiard champion. 'Constant practice in playing pocket-pool had enabled him to overcome all opposition. Willie Hopeless was his professional name at present. Theresa Durand had started a new religious sect, and was at TUSITALA 83 present with her followers waiting for the end of the world on Mount Washington. Fire and brimstone were to be the specials of the day. A prosperous relative having done her a favor in dying and leaving her millions, Amy Hammond had decided to benefit humanity by founding an institution for the feeble-minded and insane. Marion Campbell was at the head of the first Women's Police Force in town. The daring and courage of the women had induced the commissioner to do away with the men's force and replace them with the women. Rachel Noel had just declared her independence from her husband. She was prominent in society circles, but more so in trial scenes. She had made a fortune through several wise matri- monial investments. Bolick Tamulevich, .our versatile athlete, was now coaching Villanova. Last year his team had come through with flying colors. Josephine Powlowsky was the instigator of a revolution in Korea, being opposed to the government there which was contin- ually becoming more and more despotic. Latest reports indicated that her forces were gaining steadily. just then the doorbell rang and Ann, on answering, found it to be a newsboy. She purchased a copy of the Nashua Oracle and pointed to a section enlarging on the success of Alice Weymouth, the Broadway stage favorite, who had advanced to the heights of stardom under the tutelage of Samuel Kamensky, the producer, who had replaced Ziegfeld of the follies. Time had flown by quite fast, and I soon bade Ann a good day. All of the remaining part of the day, I was thinking of the mysteries of fate. The difference in occupation and character among my former classmates was astonishing. Would they have changed as much ten years hence? JOSEPH AcKs'r1N. PART II ' At the outset of my duties as census taker, I landed my aero- plane onthe roof of a beautiful. apartment building on High Street. After tucking my census book under my arm, I took the elevator and rode down for about ten minutes until I reached the seventy-fifth Hoor. A very nice looking young lady opened the door of one of the apartments in answer to my ringing the bell. We stared at each other for about a second, and then I exclaimed, "Why, Louise Paige, I didn't expect to find you here. I see you've changed your name." "Oh, yes," said Louise. "After we left high schooll married 84 TUSITALA a multimillionaire's chauffeur. My name is now Mrs. Michael Pfitzenmeierf' "Have you heard anything of any of our old classmates late- ly ?" I asked. "I've thought a lot about them since I came back to Nashua to take the census." "I can tell you about quite a few of them," Louise replied. "Of course, your remember Katherine 'Moher, Nellie Balukonis, Mary Caron., and Josephine Belowski. They did so well in the business world that they were able to start a large moving picture concern called The Hudsonia Film Company, with studios in Hudson." "Why Hudson ?" I asked. "Well," Louise continued, "the company had to have a lot of land near a large city, and it isn't every community you can buy for ten dollars down and a dollar a week. Edwin Parker closed the deal. The picture they are making now was taken from astory written by Edgar Gamache and adapted to the screen by Phyllis Gallup. Jimmy Rock and Esther Eaton are playing the leading roles. The picture is called The Lemon Lifesaver. Iimmy's sum- mer activities make him perfectly fitted for the part. "Then you remember Kathryn Tebbetts and Marjorie Whit- ney. They have been living in Washington, and their influence is felt all over the White House. You see, they're the housekeepersf' After finding that Louise was only ten years older than in 1930 and that she had two aeroplanes, I went on to a large busi- ness concern in the pursuit of my duties. To my surprise I found that Jerry Laliberte was the president and that he was manufac- turing cushions which he sold to high schools. I remarked that the students were made more comfortable now than in our dayg but he told me the fact was that the pupils were so small they required cushions to permit them to see above the desks. He also told me that Claire Merrill and Bea Michaud were manufacturing unbreakable test tubes for the chemistry classes. I next visited a large mirror manufacturing establishment run by Mary Shea and Bea Lund. I was not at all surprised to learn that Dot Hall was chief mirror inspector, whose duty it was to look at every mirror before it left the factory. Dot told me that Ruth Wilcox, being too bashful to confront this cruel world alone, had married a big salt and pepper man from Syracuse. Being rather exhausted from my hard work, I decided to have lunch. I entered a very pretty restaurant justin time to hear Edwin Francoeur finish a pathetic violin solo called The Lost Flapper Blues. The place being crowded, I had to sit at a table with a per- son who, I noticed, after eating her lunch, had swallowed her cup, 1 I ,. L S ,IPISITAPA I - . . c,L,.?E saucer, and plates. Seeing the surprised expression on my face, she explained that two persons by the names of Lucille Smith and Bea Tanguay had discovered a substance for making dishes which was both nourishing and digestible. After finishing with the food, the customer ate the dishes, thus saving the trouble of washing them. After this explanation I recognized this person to be Margaret Sullivan, and after exchanging greetings,Iasked her what she was doing. 'Tm a traveling saleswomanf' she told me. "You know I could always handle a big line." "Have you heard anything of Mary O'Learylately?"Iasked. "Why, certainly," said Margaret. "After the death of the original Aunt Jemima, Mary took her place posing for advertise- ments for the Aunt Jemima Pancake Flour Company." "Oh, yes," I said. "Seems to me I heard something about Pauline Borciak sketching pictures for ads for that company." just as I was finishing dinner after very timidly biting off a piece of my plate just to try the new idea, somebody turned on a radio. The announcer was reading the report of an election. I was pleased to hear that Kathryn Winn, Madeline Nash, and Alice Tanana had been elected to the Nashua Board of Educa- tion. They had all agreed to put Elinor Glyn's books on the high school reading list and to add dancing classes to the curriculum under the supervision of Elizabeth Hanscom. After leaving the restaurant, I suddenly found myself being carried along by a large crowd of girls. We finally ended in an exquisite new beauty parlor where the cause of the rush was ex- plained. Thomas Bingham and Albert Gagnon had just opened this charming place. Albert was to do the managing-and inci- dentally I thought what a perfect ad he would be for his partic- ular brand of permanent wave-while Tommy was to do the hair waving. Evidently Tommy appreciated the ladies more than he did in Mr. White's history class. After this I found nobody I knew in the course of my duties until about six o'clock, General Electric Saving Time, when I came to a store having above it a sign which read, Silk Stockings and Insurance. A rather queer combination, I thought. I opened the door and there behind the counter stood Agnes and Lucille O'Neil. "How's business?" I asked. "If you're yourself, it's good. If you're a census taker, it's bad," said Agnes. "Let's all go to Kate Ledoux's night club for dinner," Lu- cille suggested. Being hungry again, I consented. On the way they explained that Lucille sold the silk stockings, while Agnes insured them 86 TUSITALA against holes. They also told me that Alan Willard had invented an auto- matic device for changing automobile tires. The only reason that he hadn't had it patented was that it wouldn't work. All along the streets the newsboys were shouting, "Read all about the big society wedding-Kitty Rees, famous stage star, marries Carl Stratton, well known swivel chair manufacturer." "That paper is owned by john Robichard," Lucille remarked. just before we arrived at the night club, which had been de- signed by Doris Watkins and was known all over the country, Agnes told me that 'Marie Dubray and Malvena Petrowski were both working as stenographers for Leo Willette, who had become a wealthy broker on Wall Street. When we entered the night club, we found that there was a banquet going on in honor of Edward Moriarty, who had just returned from a hunting expedition in Africa. After telling the number and size of the lions he had shot, he explained that being lost for a whole week in the jungle, he had been forced to live on hot air which, however, agreed with him very well. After a lively evening I went back to my aeroplane and flew off into space. FRANCES HALLISEY. PART III The morning dawned bright and clear. I felt instinctively that this indeed would prove to be a full and interesting day for me. I first went to the post office to mail a letter to my old friend Maude Conner, who had married and was living in New York City. It was rumored that her husband was a wealthy oil king. When I entered the post office, I saw our trim little Blanche Cormier emerge from a door marked private. She had just taken dictation from john Balukonis, the new postmaster. She tear- fully explained that he was a tyrant to work for. Blanche had at last achieved her dream: she was working for Uncle Sam. She told me that Alice Desprez worked there, too. She also said that Anna Brady and Julianna Jensen had governmental positions in Manchester. Wasn't that a boost for our commercial training at N. H. S., having four members of one class obtain these much sought for positions? I sauntered across the street to the Community Council, to take the census. There I met Catherine Moran and Lillian Theroux, two old friends. They both made sweet, patient, nurses, and how well they seemed to get along with little children! Im- agine my surprise when I saw a henpecked-looking man staring at TUSITALA 87 me from across the room. It was Joe Leslie. He had brought joe, Jr., to Dr. john McQuade for malnutrition treatment. He told me that he was now head of the Standstrate Military Acad- emy here in Nashua. His wife, Lucille Broderick, was also sitting there, very calm and collected, apparently unaffected by her hope- ful's gymnastics. Immediately, I wondered if the child's condition was due to her cooking! I From there I hurried into the Police Station. I received the shock of my life when I saw our jolly friend, Elgin Dumont, glaring at me from behind his desk. He was Chief of Police. I smiled foolishly at him, as usual, whereupon his severe exterior softened. He and I talked for nearly an hour. He told me that Bob Lee had been continually promoted until now he was the na- tional manager of Woolworth's. Of course Bo-b's charming way with the lady customers had helped to win him this exalted posi- tion. Elgin also told me that John Malay and Clinton Leach were officers, and the best men on the force. John was really more successful, because Clinton did a surplus amount of talking while pounding the beat. My next stop was at the Salvation Army. Ruth Wilson,with face aglow, was telling the throng why she had chosen this as her life work. The recital was really effective. Elnora Gilbert ap- peared next. Her talk likewise was extremely impressive. Her hearty good nature was an inspiration to both men and women. I went to the Besse 8: Bryant Store next to record statistics concerning the business facilities. In a fashion show which was going on there, a tall, slender, blond girl was demonstrating a bride's gown-who but Adele Mycko! When I entered the door, I was met by a smiling saleslady, named St. Onge. Our capable Camille had prospered and was now head saleslady and sole buyer. She told me that Leonard March was supervisor of the men's department. From my conversation with her I further learned that Arthur Hurley had been engaged as cheering instructor at Harvard. lfVe always said that Art could cheer with the best of them. I was also told that Raymond Ledoux and Paul Lawrence, two fastidious classmates, had recently established a clothing store and were handing Leonard some keen competition. I then stepped into a restaurant for dinner. Imagine my de- light when I met Wilford Smith there. He told me that he was prospering slowly but surely in the furniture business. Aurore Prunier, he said, was his secretary. Upon leaving I discovered the cashier to be Thelma Rolfe. She seemed to be the same happy Thelma of high school days. She told me that Mildred Farwell was teaching French in a Manchester High School. I also heard, from her, that Armaveny Markarian was teaching senior Latin 88 TUSITALA in N. H. S. I pitied the students, for I felt that she would expect them to know and appreciate Latin as she did. I felt tired at this stage of the game, consequently went into the Colonial Theatre, without even knowing what the program was to be. However, I became intensely interested when I saw a charming young woman seat herself graciously at the piano. The pianist was none other than my old friend, Bertha Edelstein. How proud I felt when I looked around to see the faces made happy by Bertha's inspiring music! The next feature was marvel- ous. A tall, blonde man led a slight, pretty girl to the center of the stage. From there they seemed to drift away to the strains of :'My Wild Irish Rose." Upon recognizing the' girl to be Virginia Collins, I knew at once that the man was "Brownie" Huk. No one else could waltz quite as he did. The next number was a violin solo. A stunning woman stood before the footlights playing her beloved instrument with all the feelings of the ages swaying her. This artist was Faustyna Billewicz. When I left the building, my heart light with pride and hap- piness, I was fortunate enough to meet Beverly Hood. She asked me to go to see our noble looking Dick Sweetser play the leading role in her latest play-as though I would intentionally miss see- ing "My Holly" perform! You see, Beverly had followed her ten- dency toward play writing. From Beverly I learned that Bertha Cornwall and Barbara Canfield had started on a missionary trip to Africa. Bertha was to be a teacher, and Barbara was to act in the capacity of nurse to the missionary party and the natives. George Parker had graduated from a theological school and was going as preacher. While we were talking, a Ford roadster came racing down the street, John Cameron driving it. His expert secretary, Lucile Merrill, was sitting very grandly by his side. Marjorie Page and Virgie Felton were likewise sailing by majestically, seated in the rumble seat. Peter Tamulonis was standing on the running board, preparing to jump. Beverly explained that Peter was john's research man, and that the girls worked for John in his poultry business, answering inquiries as to how to raise hens that would lay big, brown eggs. My friend John had prospered in his poultry business! How glad I was! That night my mind was filled with tender memories con- cerning the class of 1930. I liked my work better than ever after that day. GLADYS MAKER. AI-'51 are TUSITALA 89 PART IV On April Fool's Day, in the year 1940, I stuffed a notebook into my pocket and started on a tour of the business section of Nashua for the purpose of taking the census. As I ambled along Main street, carefully avoiding pocketbooks and derby hats, Iwas struck with the magnificence of a large structure which I toiok to be a museum. Such was not the case, however, for on the outside was a sign which read "Gas, 4c." Whether this was the"price per quart or per pint I did not knowg therefore, I asked one of the attendants. Before he could answer, I. recognized him as Wallace Aponovich, an old classmate of mine. After discussing old times awhile, he informed me that "jake" Esson owned a large chain of filling stations and was at this time engaged in a price war with the firm of Duncklee and Goodhue, just acnoss the street. As he said this, I observed Irving Duncklee placing a sign on the front of his building which read "Gas, 3c. Free apple pie with every five gallons." ' A-t this point, the low drone of an airplane was heard over- head. "That's Albert Naples," said -Wallace. "He's running a doughnut hole delivery service. You see, folks have been com- plaining that the holes in doughnuts are too stale. Albert heard about this and decided to go to a doughnut hole fact.ory, load his plane, and fly direct to the bakery. Several seconds are thus saved." Feeling that I had wasted enough time to last me the rest of the morning, I went to "Jake" to obtain the information necessary for compiling the census. When I left him, he was debating the problem of whether to give away a can of 'Campbell's Canned Cauliflower, put up by Dave Campbell, or a necklace of hen's teeth, made by another classmate, Harold Nye. The next building was ioccupied by Madame Roy's Beauty Parlor. After answering the usual questions relative to the census, she asked me if I wanted to see her establishment. When I ad- mitted I did, she pressed a button on her desk. Immediately Eleanor Spring appeared in a doorway. ' "Eleanor," said she, "take the gentleman for a tour of the factory." Eleanor, being an obedient secretary, and seeming to know who was meant by "gentleman," took me to the second floor. This was the Women's Department, in which I found Ethel Miller, Anne Newman, and Ruth Osgood plying their trades behind large comfortable barber chairs. These chairs, I was told, were made by Arthur Gay in a large factory owned by a company of which Charles Sakowich was Vice President in charge of Paste and Glue, and George Messer Shattuck was Vice President in charge of Inkwells and Postage Stamps. 90 TUSITALA On the third floor, in the Men's Department, I found joe Ackstin having his hair curled by D.0t Gleason. He to-ld me that he was a professional football player, known as "The Singing Guard," and that he endorsed everything from ash cans to crab- meat, although his manager, William Herbert, would allow him to endorse only the best brands. Gladys Maker and Anita Herbert were also in this Department, and I consented to have my finger nails manicured, having them cleaned twice in order not to slight either. Beginning to feel hungry, I took my leave of Eleanor and Madame Roy, and went in search of a lunch cart. I found one a short distance down the street, run by Peter Simses. In spite ,of my protests that Dr. Lampron had ordered me to eat nothing but ham sandwiches and coffee for dinner, as a sudden change from an established custom might sadly disrupt my health, he ignored my order of "two sliced, draw one," and loaded a plate with a slavb of roast beef, a hatfull of potato, and gravy enough to float the Leviatham, Following the meal, "Pete" introduced me to his counter men, Wallace Taylor, Richard Crosby, and Fred Prunier, after which I picked up my hat, Cbought at Shirley Kamenske's haber- dasheryj and walked toward the door. Before, I could reach it, I was stopped by Walter Spaulding, who announced that he was the oHicial tooth picker, and would I have my teeth picked? I vwouldg consequently he picked out the proper size of pneumatic tooth pick, CNo. B-491 and proceeded to do a scientific job, finishing up with a vacuum cleaner. Walter Dooley and Warren Hammar had helped him develop the process, and they expected to spread the system all over the United States. As I left the lunch cart, the most promising thing that struck my eye was a theatre. As soon as I stepped inside, I was greeted by Paul LaMarche. He informed me that he, with Stephanie Dansevich, -owned the theatre, and as he walked into an office marked "Private" and played the phonograph, I had to admit he was probably right. We sat down and proceeded to discuss our brother alumni. He explained that the record I was hearing was "The Cake-eater's March," the theme song .of "Mr, Penhallow's Icepick,', a talkie in which Algenia Robinson played the lead. The players were entirely women, as a protest against the number of exclusively masculine movies which were produced following the succ ,ss of "Journey's End." Edith Holt and Elizabeth Ruf were also in the movies, but .only the news reelsg Edith laying the corner- stone for a home for deaf cats, and Elizabeth planting the shade tre: that would soon protect the permanent home of the Three Blind Mice. "W'hat's Bob Hoitt doing for a living?" I asked. "He's conducting an orchestra composed of Thomas White TUSITALA 91 playing a jew's harp, Raymond Little with a gold plated fiddle, and Roger Leighton, who turns the pages for the piano player. They call themselves the 'Superheaters'." "Where does Harry Lund keep himself?" "He teaches Freshman History in Nashua High. Last time I saw him he was removing a spitball from behind his ear and his goggles from the inkwell where they had fallen. Freshmen haven't changed so much since our day, have they? Amelia Fregni was going to teach school, but instead she established a pickle factory out West. Her slogan is 'Fine Pickles for Fastidious People!' " At this point he rose from his chair, fwhich was one of the latest models of those previously mentioned as being made by Carl Strattonj and said that he had to pay off his help. While Iwould not delay him in this most important task, I did ask him if he had any information concerning Frances Hallisey. "Oh, yes," he said. "She invented a device for automatically increasing the distance between the hair and the toes. This ap- paratus consists of two sets of lead weights. One set is attached to the feet and hung over the footboard of the bed, and the other is attached to the neck and hung over the headboard. The result- ing strains are calculated to increase the height. The School Board has decreed that all Freshmen must spend at least six months in the apparatus immediately previous to their entering High School." My curiosity having been satisfied, I toddled home to a well- earned UQ rest. ALAN WILLARD. I . H in-E" 'V .,! 'tfyi A E - 1. 1 , 1 A i ,.n Q-' -, , -2, ., .
