MISS MARTHA CICRAMER
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.

JOSEPH CHARLES ACKSTIN
"ll'l1ere there is ia will, there is a way."
"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
'tBvHer ask tw-ice before you lose your 'way
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.

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.
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
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.

"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

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-

"Tall, stately and oh-.ro 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,

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
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.

Barbara, or "Arabab," as some of us call
her, is our conception of a real lady. Promi-

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.

wish you happiness and good fortune. Ring

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.

"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.

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.

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"

ln the early part ot' our Sophomore year,
Bertha joined us. 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.

"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."
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.
"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
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.

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.

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.
"And some that .smile have in, their heart,

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.

"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.

So thought "Al," of the crinkly, golden

He was very shy, modest, and had little to

don't let her looks deceive you. She certainly
kept us cheery by her snappy jokes and

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-

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 the 'freaking Chair," besides working
lrack stage for this and several other plays
given lly the school in the auditorium.

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.

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

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

some day be able to satisfy her great desire
to travel and see the world.

should think that people would be rather
timid about taking 'Nita out in their ma-

she could be found studying Math in Room

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

Roger was. a quiet young man, who was
very much interested in mechanics, especially
drawing. Theprohlems in his course did not
give him much trouble. Roger was also a
proficient stage hand, and any time the
school had occasion to call for experts in that
line, he was never overlooked. His motto
was "Anything worth while is worth work-
ing for." He was a member of the Stage
Committee for the 'freaking Chair."

"Kay" was one of our first class musicians.
How he could fiddle! Besides playingavio-

To one not knowing him he seems very
bashful, but to his friends heis very sociable
and always ready lo play some prank. Late
hours do not help any one as far as school
work is concerned, but "Ray" never seemed
to have much to worry about. "Ray" has

XYe all know Harry, the boy from Litch-
field. He is, in our opinion, the ideal of
courtesy and correct conduct. 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. VVe sincerely
wish him success.
"There zuats laughter in her eyes."
Although Wanda was quiet some of the
time, she had a hearty laugh and was always
ready for fun. You could just see it in her
eyes. She was friendly to everyone, always
saying something pleasant about someone.
We could never imagine her bragging or
stretching the truth. Wanda was on Traffic

Her hobby seems to be walking up and down

As quiet as a mouse was Mary, that is, in

when spoken to, she never failed to have a
friendly answer ready. Outside of school, she
was full of fun, and enjoyed a good time in
her own quiet way. She was very fond of
outdoor sports, especially skating. Ever since
physiology days, Mary's interest has been
centered on the nursing profession. The pic-

John is "kind of" interested in "moosic,"
particularly the "boomlbooml" and intensely
interested in politics and sports. His mag-

many a teacher to sit up and take notice,

"High above lzale I dwell."
Did you know a girl who was never

she was entirely indifferent to boys. Camille
always thought that the teachers were most

'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.

"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

willing to help her schoolmates, and give her
advice to anyone desiring such. Her quiet
disposition, her good nature, make her one
of the easiest girls to get along with. Sheis
one who stands by her friends staunchly
through thick and thin. When her dark, soft
eyes look into yours, they seem to pierce
you through and through. Her voice is

"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.

Peter certainly surprised tis by his fine
portrayal of the bold blustering'AOliver Hart,

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

some of the assignments. ln spite of this
fact, one never saw him without a beaming
countenance, nor did he lose the respect of

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

quite a name for himself in that line of

"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

as the 'lColonel," "Holly," or our "English

was arguments, and she didn't care who
knew it. She will always be remembered by
a certain law class as the saver of many a
dull period. Law was never dry if Celia

You are fighting for the Right.
Hold erect this banner, Honor!

Once upon a time, 'way back in September, 1926, an odd-
appearing group gathered around the high school. 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
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
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.

FOOTBALL TEAM, 1930
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
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,

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
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
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
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
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-

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
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!

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
Tenth: To Miss Sullivan, copies of a new textbook which

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-

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.

In the month of April, 1940, four members of the class of
1930, N. 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.
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
- 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-
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
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-
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
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
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
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-
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?
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
a multimillionaire's chauffeur. My name is now Mrs. Michael
"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
"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
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
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,
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
"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-
Being hungry again, I consented. On the way they explained
that Lucille sold the silk stockings, while Agnes insured them
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.
The morning dawned bright and clear. I felt instinctively
that this indeed would prove to be a full and interesting day for
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
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
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
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
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-
"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
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.
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
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
"W'hat's Bob Hoitt doing for a living?" I asked.
"He's conducting an orchestra composed of Thomas White
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.
