Milton was a newcomer from Iowa by the Mississippi, whose humorous smile and cheerful greeting soon made him popular at school. He was studious, and we know he'll make good on the track team. JOHN JOSEPH ARLAUSKAS "Johnny's speaking is something great, We always want him to debate." Usually quiet, when "Johnny" speaks, his slow, drawling speech is a delight to hear. And you should see him in the ritzy uniform he wears while ushering at the State. Basketfball II. FRANCES AMY ASKHAM "'C'07l8f!l71f in spirit!" "Franny" was the quiet, studious type in school, but once outside she was loads of fun. She was one of those who stood high in the Upper Fourth. Candy Girl at "Pattie" IV.

MARY BALUKONIS "A merry heart' makes a cheerful countenance! School s irit and "Balcony's" name go hand in hand. Iguring her four years of High she never missed a football game, and a perfect record would be hers had she not missed five basketball games. She had plenty of "pals," attracted by her Congeniality. Upper Fourthg Home Economics Club IVg "That's That" IIIQ "Pattie" IV. JONATHAN KENDALL BANCROFT "'Fiml tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, Sermons in stones, and good in everything."

He was as good an athlete as he was 3. friend. Football II, III, IV. DAISY BEAN "Of all thc' daisies in the dell This one is known and lorcd most well." Although "Chasey" was an optimist, lovable, and jolly to all, she had her moments of deep thought and study. TUSITALA HILDA MAE BEECHMAN "To mvvt mich day with 11. clzrcrful smile Is truly well worth while." Hilda's cheerful smile was always present. She was one girl you couldn't help liking. Her friends were many and true. She was a member of the Home Economics Club III, IV. CLARENCE FARRAR BENT "High erected thoughts seated in the heart of courts.-fy." Always quiet and courteous, Clarence was a good scholar and a good fellow, who joined our class sophomore year and still retained some of his New York State accent. Good wishes for your college career, Clarence. I LEO BERGERON "So iHIllfltit"11it, full of action, full of manly pride and friendship." Leo's popularity was due to his courtesy and ability as a leader. He is always jolly and full of fun. We hope he never loses that mischief vous twinkle in his eyes. Pawtucket Play Tour- namentg Head Cheer Leaderg Assistant Editor Tusitalag Usher at Graduation 1931 and at "P3.Cti8.N FLORENCE GERMAINE BENGEVIN "Sho entertains a good disposition." If you saw "Billie," you were sure to see Helen. She was quiet, but by the twinkle in her eye you knew she could be mischievous. TUSITALA - MARY DORIS BOGDAN "Always a smile will ri hvlping hand Always a friend who will umlf'rstun1l." Mary was always happy and friendly to every' one. Those of us who were lucky enough to read her themes certainly enjoyed them. Tattler IV, and Upper Fourth. GABRIELLE VIRGINIA BOILARD "Laugh and thu world laughs with you-" Whenever one of us had a joke that we thought was good, we always found "Gaby" willing to listen and ready to laugh with us. Gabrielle was a busy girl outside of school, but she had time to join and enjoy the Home Eco' nomics Club II, III. SIEFAR BORTAS "Look at those m1mcl4vs." "Seefus" did not work very hard in the class' room, but he certainly worked hard outside of school. He played tackle on the football team and was a hammerfthrower on the track team. Football III, IVg Track III, IV. KARNIG BOYAJIAN "Ha that hath putirncer muy compass !lII,lllhlHg.U "Karney" was a very studious and hard' working lad. His pet study was German, in which he excelled, and his chief delight was puzzling over diflicult passages that no one else could possibly figure out. We know that "Karney" will make good. TUSITALA ' -1' 'l 'nanny'- ARNOLD CAMPBELL "By the wurlf our' knows thc' urorlrnzmlf' Arnold always had his work done. He was constantly on the Honor Roll and in the Upper Fourth. Prom Committee IIIg Graduation Usher III. Good luck, Arnold! EDGAR RALPH CARON "A youth tllvrf' was with quiet ways." Quiet, good humored, and sensiblefappearing, "Eddy" was a welcome addition to the class of 1932. He was out for Track 1, and a member of Boys' Rifle Club IV. YVETTE CARON "If Ifllljjhffl' -is contagious, .lust stand und !'IIfl'fI hm' grin." Yvette was the quiet girl with the beautiful voice. But that wasn't the only reason we all liked her so well! "That's That" HL Candy Gill at "Pattie" IV. CON STANTINE CAROS "ll'fH'1I humor crnncs my way, 'Tis lwrr' that I will play." "Castor Oil" was a bitter dose to his teachers, because of his cheerful clamor and ready wit. He was in the following plays: "Pattie," "That's That," and the "Lucky jade." TUSITALA JOHN E. CARROLL "Just watch that smile." "Yunk" was always happy in and out of school and he always had a ready smile for ev' erybody. He did not take part in many of the school activities because he did not have much time for them. BERNARD L. CEDERHOLM 'fltesoluu and you are ff-ec." When "Gus" made up his mind to do some' thing, he'd do it. However, he hated making up his mind. He was a friend to all. ELEANOR CHAMPNEY "Young in limhs, in jUdfl'IllI'llit aldf' Our gifted and voluble valedictorian's talents were equalled only by her popularity. "Belle of Barcelonaf' "Thais That"g Glee Club Hg Art Cluh IIg Tattler I, II, HI, IV, Editorfinfchief IVg Upper Fourth. ANNA MARY CHESSON "Ihr smiln u-us not mon- .sunny than hm' llfl'flTt.v Did you ever see "Anna Mae" when she wasn't smiling? If you did, it was most un- usual. Candy Girl at "That's That" III and at "Pattie" IVQ Press Club IVQ Upper Fourth. TUSITALA JANE GEORGE CHIMIKLIS "Dark mul gvntlc as thc night." "'Chimmy" was a darkfhaired, brownfeyed, and very thoughtful young lady. Well, perhaps not so thoughtful all the time, because we all have our "moments," but anyway thoughtful enough to achieve a place on the Upper Fourth. Nice work, Jane! "Belle of Barcelonaug Senior Play Property Committee IV. ARTHUR CHRISTIE "1Vhut's in ll' name?" "Art" has been trying to trace his ancestors for many months but even with the use of tracer bullets, which he uses on the rifle team, he seems to make no headway. "Belle of Barcelona." HAROLD CLARK "'I'Iu' schoolboy shows hix clirwrjul mor11'ing jawn' "Clarkie" worked on the lunch counter dur- ing his fourth year. He was a very studious lad and was of course in the Upper Fourth. We know that "Clarkie" will make a success of life, and we wish him a happy future. LU CILLE M. CLIFFORD "Lnl'11bIl', l1rlp,'r!l. uurl 8f1lf?l'I'f', To many frivnd.-: xhr' 'is must df'ur." Through the four years of high school, to have held onc's marks sufficiently high to place onc's name on the Upper Fourth is not an easy accomplishment, but Lucille has won this dis' tinction, and 1932 is proud of her. TUsirALA ROBERT CLIFFORD "A bird fin thi' hrmd is worth two in the bush." Quiet and practical is "Bob," but nevertheless he is well liked by his classmates. He would have made a good track mang he was always leading the marathon race to the Country Club after the oneflifteen bell. GERTRUDE COHEN "Nha spvulrs with the Voice of Il goddess." lt was always a pleasure to hear L'Gcrt" ref cite, and especially in English. With her low, wellfmodulated voice, and her wellfselected vo' cabulary, you were always sure of listening to something really worthfwhile. "That's Thatng "Lucky jade." LORETTE ALICE CORMIER 'AA smwilcr for ull, u fjrvvtiiig glad, A friwldly mrrry 1471111 sho had." Lorette was for three years one of the shining lights in the A. A. Productionsg she worked energetically on the "Props" committee for the Senior Play: represented the school in our debate with Manchester. and took her place as fourth in the Upper Fourth. Surely the very corridors of this old High will miss you, now that you have gone smiling along your way. ANDREW B. COSTELLO "Enjoy thc: 1l'I'I'8l'lIi day." We'll remember Costello as a class cutfup and a living example of what the well dressed boy should wear. He was in "Belle of Barcelona." TUSITALA WILFRED S. COTE "Hr attains whatever he pursues!! When "Bill" wanted to "make the team" he never quit, and though he could not always make it the first time, he tried until he succeed' ed. The results are: Football Ill, IVg Baseball I, ll, III, IV: Hockey I, II, III, IVg "Pattie", "That's Thatng Usher at 1931 graduation. SYLVIA LOUISE COY Uhlhf' was so still One was almost unaumr That slu' was 1lw1'r'." "Tillie" was always thinking about something, but her thoughts never worried her, for she'd always come to with a grin. ROBERT DAYO "Lvl thr' world slide." "Bob" was very easy going. Nothing seemed to bother him. Rain or shine, he had a sunny disposition. "Belle of Barcelonang "Lucky Jadeng "That's Thatu: "Pattie"g Graduation Usher Ill. ARTHUR KENT DAVIS "lla lows to laugh, hz' Iurvs all fun, Idxprviflllgl whmz sr'hooI's bvyunf' What could have enlivened our days like your "quips and cranks and wanton wiles"? While you were not the ollicial class poet, your classmates enjoyed many a laugh over your poetic feats. You could work, too, for among the Upper Fourth we-proudly saw your name. and we chose you as an Assistant Editor of Tusitala. TUSITALA MIRIAM DELINSKY "What 1,0118 that you said?"

Candy Girl at "That's That"g Debating Club IVg Home Economics Club IV. IDA DICKSTEIN 'fWork, than play." Ida was one of our studious girls.

PAUL DIONNE NLM fvvry mlm be master of his own time." Paul was not lazy, but always conserved his energy until he got on skates, and then he was one of the fastest hockey players in high school. Hockey IV. TUSITALA 'YIVIW' HERBERT I. DONNELLY "Then Int art lm all in all." "Bert" was much time to ing character on the track saxaphone is very clever with crayons and gave drawing. He was a very interest' and enjoyed friends. He sprinted team I. He maintains that thc a musical instrument. ELLA JANE DOOLEY "'A nmidmzi nvrm' bold." If no one else knew the answer, the teacher would call on Ella-she knew. That's what put her in the Upper Fourth. Best Wishes, Ella. PAUL DOWNEY "Tho world knows nothing of its greatest men." Paul will be remembered for his good man' ners, and congeniality. Because of his earnest- ness and his ambition he attained a place in the Upper Fourthg "Belle of Barcelona" Ig Tattler Reporter IIQ Debating Club IIIQ Orchestra I, II, IIIQ Usher at 1931 Graduationg Class Prophet.

TUSITALA HELYN DUBLOW 'fAlways full of fuu and pop, Just of girl you cou't forgot." Could anv other words describe "Bunny" bet' ter? "Bunny" was certainly full of fun-who didn't enjoy having her around? She was a Tattler Reporter IH. RUBY LOUISE DUNBAR "Sho smiles alike on all." Ruby was a very dependable person whom all of us liked. Although she appeared to be very quiet, those who knew her realized that she was full of fun. Ruby was a very clever Art Student. JOSEPH JOHN DVARECKAS "If you only will, you may Lvrul u lifv 1hr1t's happy ond guy." Joe left all care to others, for he was busy en' joying life. His hobby was to be well dressed, always. Can we ever forget him as Eddie, the boy friend, in the Senior Play? And in the Paw- tucket Play Tournament he was the irrepressible errand boy. AGNES ERMALOVICH 'fNc1vcr trouble trouble till trouble troubles you." Whenever we saw "Aggie," she was always laughing and always happy. Nothing ever wor- ried her. She was one of the fastest typists in our class, and a member of the Upper Fourth TUSITALA RUTH E. FAIR '21 frivml in mwi is rl frivml inllvrfdf' Did you ever get "in a jamn? Many of us did and always found goodfnatured "Rudy" a helping hand. Home Economics IV. ANN REGINA FISHER "flood things rvnm' in small 1:uf'l.'ug:'.w." Indeed she was not asleep.

She had a quiet, friendly air which captured our friendship for life. She was an enthusiastic member of the Art Club II: and the Glee Club IV. MARION MILDRED FORD "To blush uml gently smile." Marion's red hair did not signify that she had a red'hot temper. Her quiet and studious na' ture gained her a place on the Upper Fourth. TUSITALA ETHEL MAY FOSDICK ffSim:cre and studioun, fair and square, A type, in fact, lhllt,8 vary rare." The Tattler will miss an energetic, enthusi' astic, and reliable worker in Ethel, who was Assistant Alumni Editor III and Exchange Ed- itor IV. Because of students like you, Ethel, who hold a high place on the Upper Fourth, 1932 holds its head proudly among the ranks of N. H. S. classes. ADRIEN FRANCOEUR UAH men hrwrz their faultsgtoo much modesty was his." "Tooty" never ventured to talk until spoken to, and through his shyness allowed many op' portunities for fun to slip by. Nevertheless he was very well liked, and was a reliable student. He ushered at "Babu IV. JOHN FRANKEVICZ "Af whose .sight ull the .stars hirln their flifniuinhrd heads." This genial gentleman was an ambitious scholar of surpassing brilliance, with courtesy as his watchword. Lunch counter IV, Upper Fourth. ELI SABETH GAUTIER "Mistress of herself though China fall." "Betty" was always mistress of the occasion, never losing her poise, whatever happened,-a slight slip'up in French translation or an erring actor to be prompted in Senior Play. "That'-s That", "Pattie"g Iunior Prom Committee IIIQ Upper Fourth, Press Club IV. TUSITALA ELIZABETH wj GAY "Mfr is not lifr- of all without delight." Old Man Gloom never found a warm recep' tion at "Iggy's" door. Her nimble fingers were busy her first three years, helping Mr. Wilson, with her clever manipulation of that great big cello. She could wield a mean tennis racket, al' so, since she won the Championship of the Sophomore Tennis Tournament. Upper Fourth: Secretary Senior Class. ANNA GELAZAUSKAS "Swvr't mul lowly." Anna is one of our sweet, timid girls in school, but what a lot of fun she is, when out of school. Everyone wanted to be her "pal." CATHERINE M. GILMORE "Thr world is so full of n numbr-r of things I'm surf' wr' should all Inf rw happy ns kings." "Kay" was always humming the latest songs and keeping everyone in good spirits.

Charles always had his work done and never had to go in search of information. He was inf terested in track and assumed the duties of Track Manager IH, IV. LILLIAN IRENE GREENWOOD 'fSome girls are yzopulafr, liked for a. time, But Shllls liked l'l'P?'1l'll7'H'7'P, ull the time." And why not? For we could all trust in "Lil's" sincerity and frankness. Through our high school days we have enjoyed her musical talent, for Lil was always ready whenever we wanted her to "play something simple" for us to dance to. Even with many outside diversions, Lillian made the Upper Fourth. CONSTANCE GRIGAS "Blushing like ll' rose." "Connie" could blush beautifully. She was a jolly girl, though not noisy, and a valuable friend. TUSITALA MINNIE GRIGAS "We must be pr01mred." "Min" was one girl who came to school with lessons prepared. She was popular among her classmates. MARGUERITE HAGERTY "A nzerry heart makes at cheerful couutcnuncz.. There is a saying that red-heads have violent tempers. After knowing "Margie" for four years, we have a big doubt of the truth of that saying. She was an active club member of Home Economics II, III, IV: Dramatics Club IV: and in the "Belle of Barcelona." WINIFRED KATHRYN HAGERTY "Her charms commfmrl llffl'IIff07I.U Winifred was one of our popular girls, who was always happy and certainly enjoyed living.

During our whole four years "Hammy" has taken a foremost place in every school activity, always ready and Willing with her time and en' couragement. This list of activities is a token of our esteem for her: "Bab"g "Pattie"g Art Club IIIg Junior Prom Committee: Chairman Props Committee for Senior Playg Orchestra I, II, III, IVg Cheer Leader IIIQ Ring Committeeg Tennis Tournament IIIg Tattler Reporter I, As' sociate Editor IVg Class Prophetessg Third on Upper Fourth.

Anne lent a vvelcome ear to whatever you wished to confide, and a willing hand to what' ever you devised to do. TUSITALA NELLIE ROSE HURBONOVICH 'mlm as the moon on a summcfs night." Nellie was always calm and collected. No matter how much the rest of us got excited over report cards, the depression, and what not, she always moved with an unruifled calm. We wish you lots of happiness, Nellie! AMY JACOBS ' "'Eusily pleased ,' her loud long laugh sincere." Although Amy came from Hudson, she spent most of her waking hours in Nashua, for she was a collector of nickles and dimes for Mr. Woolf worth. We all remember her frank, direct man' ner. DONALD JOHNSON "M:-n of frw words are thc best men." Donald was the quiet and retiring chap who "hid his light under a bushel," and never said anything unless he had to. Thus ambition and genial nature were lost to view. ROBERT E. JOHNSON 'dlluclfwt and tull, mul liked by ull." "What's the rush?" asks Bob. He is calm and deliberate in performing anything he under- takes to do, but he has an infectious smile, and incidentally a host of friends. TUSQLALA JULIA MARY KARSTOK "She is gentle, qui:-t, and sedate, Ami as ra pal-first mtv." "Jule" was a very cheerful and quiet girl who was never in a hurry. Although her step was leisurely, her smile was quick.

" ' V Z - ...aa Class Histor ln the fall of 1923 orders were issued for all persons interested in training for the air corps to enlist at the training school which is situated on Spring Street. The scene of enlistment was a busy one when all of the lirst year rookies were given bright green pilot,s suits and commissioned to their ".lennys" and also to their particu- lar squadrons. In a very short time we had begun to be taught the rudiments of ground work and the mechanics of flight. During the first year several of the so-called pilots developed "pilot's belly" on their first trip aloft, but others who had enlisted later on took their placesg however. Instructor Nesmith and his assistants safely guided the group of rookies through their hrst year of training. Some of the rookies advanced a little faster than others: but they all wore their bright green pilots uniforms until june 1029, when they were given a three-months' leave of absence, with orders to return to head- quarters in September. In September 1029 when most of the student-pilots had returned after their well-earned rest, they exchanged their bright green uni- forms for those of khaki. and those who later on proved 'themselves worthy of the honor were presented with a gold ring to denote their rank. This second year of training was dull and uninteresting and all were very happy when their second three-months leave of absence was granted to them. .Xgain in the fall of N30 the remaining rookies Cthey were still rookies, for they hadn't soloed as yetl returned and began to study the more dillicult phases of tlight. Such progress had been shown under the training of lflead Instructor Nesmith and his assistants that we were allowed to elect four cadet-instructors whose duties TUSITALA 61 would be to assist Instructor Nesmith and his assistants in the management of class activities: George Hambleton was chosen as Head Cadet-Instructorg Helen Thompson was promoted to the rank of Assistant Cadet-Instructorg Agnes Maclnnis was chosen as Adjutantg while Maurice Noel was chosen as Head Mechanic. During this third year of training at the school we held two "hops" in the largest hangar, namely the assembly hall. The first was the Junior Flight and then came the junior Hop. The latter was the big event of the year. During the Hop, some of the rookies stated that they had 'seen jonathan Elganso and Amelia Fly circling around one of the lights in the upper part of the hangar. During the latter part of this year a new group of Cadet-Instructors were chosen to assist Instructor Nesmith for the coming year. They were as follows: Guy Pederzani, Head Cadet Instructor, Geneva Perkins, Assistant 'Cadet-Instructor, Elizabeth Gay, Adjutantg and Robert Roy, Head Mechanic. In June 1931, we were recompensed with another three-months leave of absence, which by the way, was our last. In September of 1931 we came back to our new hangars, all of which were situated on the ground floor. This year, for the first time, a Patrol organization was formed under the able direction of Assistant Instructor Lawrence. The purpose of this organiza- tion was to help the various squadrons and patrols, such as the football squadron, the baseball and basket-ball patrols of the school, both financially and morally. The following officers were elected: Guy Pederzani, Patrol Commander, Anna Skorb, Assist- ant Patrol Commanderg Christos Scontsas, Head Mechanic, and Agnes Maclnnis as Adjutant. During the first part of the year the annual Senior Play was staged. The play was put on with the aid of Assistant Instructor Cornell. The name of the play was "Bab, a Sub-Deb," and the prin- cipal actors were: Anne Pierce, Robert Whitney, Catherine Somer- vill, VVilliam Swett, Margaret Haug, Betty Wall, Harry Theodor- opoulos, Joseph Dvareckas, Agnes Utka, Esther Hamilton, and Allan Saunders. About the middle of the year everyone had his picture 'taken for identification purposes. About this time the edi- tors of the class register were voted upon and the results were that Lionel Pinet was elected as Chief-Pilot, while Bernard Murphy, Helen Murphy, and Helen Vondell were elected as his associates. Lionel Pinet later resigned. A little later our Instructor Nesmith announced the Upper Quarter, or those who were prepared to solo. There were forty-nine members out of a class of 196 who had earned the right to lead the class in its activities. The most privileged was Eleanor Champney, who by her diligence, concentration, and perseverance won the honor 'to be -the first of all the class to solo. Also at about this time the Senior uniforms were voted upon and it was decided that we should not receive the customary jackets, but should receive natty white sweaters instead. At a meeting of the Senior Class after the Upper 62 TUSITALA - Quarter had been announced George Hamhleton was chosen as the Class Urator to address the class of 1932 at graduation and Paul Downey, Stanley Sakowich, Agnes Maclnnis, and Esther Hamilton were chosen to foretell the future of the various members in the years to come. Un April Hrst the Senior Flight was held in the main hangar. ' During the latter part of the year the school authorities granted us the privilege to earn 'special mention and if lucky a small com- pensation hy competition, the rewards to he two Noyes Medals and two Dodge Prizes. The gala events of the senior year were the Senior Banquet which was held on Thursday, June 23, 1932, and the Senior Hop which was held on June 22, 1932. Then came graduation when all the rookies of by-gone days received their "wings" and were allowed to solo. DEXTER C. VVRIGHT.

It still failed to place a man on the basket- hall team, hut in the spring of 1930 Roy started to burn up the cinders for the track team, while john -lehh became regular lirst baseman and l,ouis Richards reserve catcher onthe lmasehall team. The golf team of 1930 found Herbert "I luck" XVeymouth, .Xlphonse Zedalis. and "Allie" Hacker, the latter captain, chasing the little pellet around the smooth greens and rough roughs of various golf courses, striving to win fame and renown for their Alma Mater. BASKET-BALL TEAM, 1931 The fall of 1932 saw three members of the class oi '32 earning their letters as regulars on the gridiron : Cecil "Tete" Barnes played end and center, Guy Vederzani quarterback, and Thomas lXlacUon- ald guard. The hockey team of 1930-31 had Louis Richards, XVil- fred Cote. tiuy Pederzani, Paul Dionne, and .Nllmert llommel wearing the purple suits in an attempt to gain recognition lor a game which was rapidly becoming popular as a high school sport. Un the lmasket-hall team of 1930-31, "jackie" Narkunas, who had heen a memher of the previous graduating class until he left school to return as a member of '32, played regular forward. while l'aul lihelan and Ray XX'esson saw plenty of action as sulms. .Xt the close of the season "jackie" was elected captain of the 1931-32 team. Track again found Roy breaking records-and other teams' hearts V -with his winged feet, while Victor XVolison and Peter Novak, thc former a miler and the latter a high jumper, also helped win meets with their prowess. Un the hasehall team John Jehh again was regular lirst sacker. l.ouis Richards hecame regular hackstop, and "jackie', Narkunas regular shortstop. Golf had now become a recognized sport, and i A TUSITALA pp --5 "Huck', VVey1nouth, "Allie" Backer, Alphonse Zedalis, and Steve XVhite composed the nucleus of the team. Incidentally "Huck" captained this team and did a line job of it. In the fall of 1931, "Tete" Barnes, joe Tubinis, Bennie Bausha, Teddy Kopka, Siefar Bortas, Thomas MacDonald, and Captain Guy Pederzani started their last season of football for the Purple. Their record of wins and losses was not very impressive, but their moral victory over their traditional rivals, Lowell High. compen- sated for the defeats at the hands of other teams. The Purple hockey team of 1931-32 won the state high school championship and was awarded a silver cup for its trouble. The team during its rather irregular season won tive, lost two, and tied one game, al- though it was playing a sport still not officially recognized by the school. Included on the tea1n's roster were Louis Richards, Guy Pederzani. John XVirbal, Albert Hommel, Wlilfred Cote, and Teddy Kopka, all members of the class of '32, Allan Saunders '32 man- aged the team effectively, and was responsible for the backing the team received by running dances, soliciting aid, and so on. The basket-ball season found "Tete" Barnes and Ray VVesson co-captains of the team, while Paul Phelan further upheld the class of '32 by becoming a regular guard. Invited to the state tournament, the team lost its first game to Berlin, who later were runners up to St. bloseph's High of Manchester, but -the Purple quintet's real achievement was its defeat of the Salem, Massachu- setts, championship team by a score of 24-23.

He certainly could wear clothes well. 68 TUSITALA At last appeared the irrepressible Bab herself, just the same Anne Pierce that everyone knew and loved. Here she was taking hand in match-making. Leila appeared to be interested in Beresford, an English Lord, but Bab-wicked young lady--kept her "on edgei' with her tricks. Poor Leila! Bab upset the family by announcing that she was in love with Harold Valentine Can imaginary loverj and wasnlt she horrified when Harold Valentine appeared in person? Who was he? None other than "Allie" Backer. How many girls have since expressed a weakness for blondes! XVasn,t Bill Swett the perfect Englishman with his cane, mon- ocle, and accent? No wonder Leila fell in love with this lordly person. VVasn't Catherine Somerville a picture as Jane, Bab's bosom friend? Imagine little Catherine flirting with tall Joe Dvareckas, who was Eddie, the grown-up kid. How malicious of her to offer him a cigar. Woulcl he ever survive? Now, that maid looked familiar. Letis see, her name was Agnes. Yes! Agnes Utka, and Allan Saunders was the butler. Weren't they perfect domestics! Here Bab was in Lord Beresford's closet, while Harold Valen- tine, Carter, and Beresford discussed her. She had just recovered her fictitious love letter from Valentine's pocket. Would she be dis- covered? A sneeze-a shot-Bab staggered forth from her hiding place-and the explanations began. But alas! Mr. Archibald was strongly opposed to Mr. Beres- ford. CHere,s where Bab's chance to show her ability came in.j After she recovered from an attack of measles she finally manoeuv- ered affairs so that Leila and Beresford entered marital bliss, but was more than surprised to find herself and Carter Brooks also in love. Thus, the play ended. Wasn't this the best play ever? VVho was the coach? Miss Cor- nell? Yes indeed. She always produces outstanding results. The senior faculty, who are always so helpful, deserve much credit, too. The lights Hashed on-a mad rush for wraps-nearly empty candy boxes picked up-and we made our way into the night air, which hinted of a snowstorm. HELEN VONDELL.

H A TUSITALA snem QQ HERE U F X Q5 GUS- 74 TUSITALA - p J if xx CLASS FQ, ' Qxegx Q I i ZGUS Prophecies Titiei' fifteen years had passed since 1ny graduation from Nash- ua High School, l found myself in New York 'City awaiting the arrival of the liner ".Xquilon" which was to convey me to lingland, but due to the adverse weather the liner had been delayed. This de- lay necessitated my remaining in the Hotel New Yorker in the meantime. That evening I was shown to a table in the hotel dining hall by a waiter who looked rather familiar, so familiar in fact. that I thought I recognized him. "Are you XYinthrop Lund?" I questioned. "Yes. lVell, well, where have you been for the past few years?" he asked. "I have been an instructor of aetiology at Columbia University and at present I am on my way to England. XVhere have you been?" "Here and there, but mostly everywhere. I returned to New York recently after a trip to Nashua. You know Nashua is called the 'Radio Cityf 'llhe offices, studios, and research laboratories of the Radio 'Corporation are situated there. Victor IVolfson is the President of the Corporation." "Not Victor XVolfson who was so 'interested in radio during his high school years?,' "Yes, Victor has been very successful in life as has been his old pal, Sidney I.evine. Sidney, together with Richard Parker. was the architect for the huge building which is the Radio Corporation headquarters. TUSITALA 75 "What has become of Alvah Tinker?" I asked. "Alvah and Charles Page are incorporated and are known throughout the country for their wonderful achievements in build- ing. They had the honor of constructing the Radio Building." "Can you give me any more news concerning this Radio Cor- poration ?" "Yes, Robert Clifford is the manager of the radio station while his assistants are Philip VVright and Herbert Donnelly, who have charge of the arrangement of the musical programs. Arnold Camp- bell is the chief electrician at the station, and Helen Tandy, who has the reputation of being the fastest woman talker on the radio, is also attached to the station.", "Is the Arthur K. Davis who is the master of ceremonies on the Lucky Strike llour the same person that graduated in the class of '32?" "Yes, Arthur K. is featured on the hour, together with 'Andy' Costello and his orchestra. "Does Everett Nash 'still live in Nashua? "Yes, Everett is a very promineni citizen t-here. He and Frank- lin Seaverns are in charge of the Child Welfare Bureau. Their duty is to see that every child under eighteen years of age is off the streets before eight P. M. I had the good fortune to meet Pat Laliberte on my last trip. He is the editor of the Plutocrat while Charles Goy is the sports editor. Luella VVilcox has succeeded Mrs. Kendall as the reporter of the Crown Hill News." "What did you hear concerning 'Clarence Bent?" I interrupted. "Clarence and Stanley Worrad, who is known as the contempo- rary Rip Van Winkle, are mouse trap manufacturers." "What is Agnes Utka doing?" "Agnes and Irene Reynolds are nurses in the recently construct- ed Newgate Hospital. Thomas Downing is the head of the staff of physicians at the same hospitalf, "Where is Allan Saunders now?" "Allan is the manager of the Hudson Center Hockey Club of which Albert Hommel is captain." "Is Estelle Olson still in town?" "Estelle was featured in the Radio 'Keith Orpheum circuit to- gether with Flora Vantine, Lillian Gorman, and Barbara Bailey. but she met and married an elderly millionaire and is now spending the winter in sunny Italy. John Arlauskas is the owner of a chain of New Hampshire Theatres. Joseph Dvareckas is his efficient manager." "What is Pearl Nash doing at present. I questioned. "Pearl is a famous designer of gowns and has her offices in Hudson. Irene Demers, Sylvia Coy, and Mary VVollen, all wealthy residents of Hudson, are just a few of her customers." U P!! Z6 TUSITALA "Is Constantine Caros still at large?" "Haven't you heard that 'Connie' is featured in the Yeast Cake advertisements? He is the famous doctor of Swanycook, Germany, who prescribes Yeast Cakes to his patients." "Wl1at has happened to Mary lNhite and Constance Grigas?,' "Mary and 'Conniel are well-to-do manufacturers of doughnuts. They owe their success to Mary Bogdan, who is a famous dietitian, and to the fact that there are no holes in their doughnuts. Well, here comes the 'boss,' so I must scatter myself. Illl see you later on, if I have a chance." With this he left, seemingly in a great hurry. That evening I attended a theatre which featured the two inimi- table comedians, Bernard Murphy and "Tillie" McDonald. They were known as the most original pair on the stage, although their jokes were as stale as a loaf of mouldy bread. After the show, I returned to the hotel and as I was not tired, I took a book from the hotel library and went to my room where I started to absorb the contents. The book, "Secrets of Silent Peo- ple," was written by Miriam Worrad. The stage play was adapted for the screen by Agnes Wolkowski and starred julia Karstok. Agnes had become one of Hollywood's noted playwrights, while julia had rapidly ascended the ladder of success to popularity. Af- ter I finished the book I retired. I was awakened the next morning by a bellhop who told me that the liner had docked during the night and was scheduled to sail in a few hours. I quickly dressed and during the course of my breakfast, I glanced through the pages of the New York Times which was edited by Robert Pinet. The sporting pages revealed that Alphonse Zedalis and james McDonald were leaving for Eng- land Where they were to compete in the International Golf Match. james was the United States Open Champion, while Alphonse was the United States amateur champion. The sporting pages also mentioned the New York Rangers, starring Louis Richard and Paul Dionne, were going to oppose the Boston Bruins at the Gar- den that evening. After breakfast, I hastily prepared my luggage and on my way to the dock, I mentally reviewed the success that my classmates had attained in life. PAUL DOWNEY. PART II After several years of exciting exploration in the Wild and woolly jungles of Southern Africa, I left my co-traveller, Helen Vondell, to vend peanuts to the educated monkeys and set sail, July 23, 1944, on the Robbe-VVhitney Steamship line for the Unit- ed States. The first afternoon at sea I encountered Paul Downey, who, I learned, was leader of the ship's orchestra. Maurice Noel, composer of several symphonic selections, was also in the rhythmic group. TUSITALA 77 "VVell," Paul began, after I had related my experiences since the days at Nashua High, "I suppose you are returning to Nashua to look up our old classmates. Did you know that VValter Munson had just accomplished a record-breaking, non-stop Hight from New Hampshire to China? He has a model aerodrome in Crown Hill: Harold Clark and XVilliam Swett are his head mechanics. In fact they construct planes according to XValter's plansf' "Crown Hill?" I was amazed. "VVhy, yes, Crown Hill has been incorporated as a city for five years. Ray Vifesson is owner and manager of the largest hotel there: it is world-famed for its spacious gymnasium in which Ray directs all activities himself. Guy Pederzani, Notre Dame's head football coach, advises all his men to train there during the sum- mer. After Robert Roy graduated from XVest Point, he returned to the track, and Ray is now training him for the coming Olympics. The Olympics have also captured Lillian Greenwood, United States tennis champ." I wondered how Paul had learned all this news. "I correspond with Alice Payne," I said, "but she never writes of the where- abouts of the old crowd. She finally found her ideal cowboy and is managing the largest ranch in Texasg Betty Wall and Louise Law- rence are her right-hand men. Lou says Betty finds a greater thrill in driving cattle than in pushing her Buick out of mud holes. Have you seen Cecil Barnes since we graduated?" Paul quickly told me that 'Cecil was a steward on one of the liners. Incidentally he is now exceedingly bald-"He still has a wave in his hair, but the tide's outi' is the way Paul put it. "Donald Robbe and Robert XVl1itney, owners of this steamship line," he continued, "are investigating submarine transportation on a large scale." "Here comes Frances Rogers, Nashua's foremost telephone op- erator." he here interrupted himself. "She's returning from a world cruise." VVondering if Frances would recognize me, I left Paul and ap- proached her. She immediately recalled our former friendship and started to tell me how she happened to be aboard this particular ship. In our succeeding gossipy chats Frances revealed to me start- ling news about several of our classmates. Nellie Hurbonovich, a private French tutor, is a matron in a home for aged ladies. Eliza- beth Gay and Phyllis Slate are charming models in Elizabeth Gau- tier's exclusive gown shoppe. "VVhen we land in New York," Frances suggested, "we'll see Sinford's Revue. Electa has been quite successful in staging plays written by Ethel Fosdick, noteworthy author and playwright. Marilyn VVarren is Electa's assistant and property man. Among the leading ladies are Anne Pierce, Catherine Somerville, Dorothy Sloan, and Beth Tebbetts. Beth and Anne are noted singers and have been on several concert tours." . 78 TUSITALA I was glad I had consented to attend the revue the night after we landed, for who should be in the neighboring box but jane Chimiklis and Frances Steckiewicz, private secretaries of Dexter VVright and Everett Bartlett, attorneys-at-law. They told us they had just seen Gabrielle Boilard and Lillian Michaud, partners in the Boilard-Michaud Chewing Gum Company. Gabrielle had come to the noted lawyers for assistance when she discovered that Lillian was defrauding the firm by chewing up most of the stock-in-trade. 'fCorinne King and Florence Bassett are deep in research work. Their latest problem is compiling statistics on 'NVhy Children At- tend Motion Pictures'," Jane told us. The following day Frances and I hopped off in a Munson plane for Crown Hill. Upon landing, we met none other than Alice Ouellette, about to take off for Boston to attend a District Nurses' Association Meeting: she is director of all district nursing in Brookline, New Hampshire. As we started down the avenue, I was attracted by an ostenta- tsous sign on a small pop corn stand and paused to inquire of Fran- ces if the owner was Denis Sullivan. "Yes, it's Denny's," was her reply. "After getting rich quick through his invention of a wordless textbook, he took up popping corn to prevent his arms from becoming rheumatic. He was de- feated in the State election for United States Senator by George Hambletong George is a presidential candidate this year, and Stan- ley Sakowich, head of the Manual Arts Department at the new Nashua High School, is his campaign manager." Here I left Frances and entered the VVesson Manor. Being at- tracted by the sound of music, I entered the salon and immediately recognized Everett Millett blowing away at his trumpet. Upon in- quiry I learned that Everett was practicing the solo he was to play at a banquet that evening to honor the return of Karnig Boyajian from his scientific expedition. Before leaving for this trip, Karnig, a noted psychologist, had been studying the case of the school marms, Gertrude Cohen and Lucille Clifford, who claimed their hair had turned white overnight. The only inference he made was the possibility that the underlying reason was excess worry caused by the younger generation. Geneva Perkins, first Lady Mayor of Hudson, was to be a guest of honor 'at the banquet. Glancing about the room I spied Geneva, whom I immediately approached and showered with questions. She told me that she was ably assisted in her duties as Mayor by Agnes MacInnis, alderwoman-at-large. "What are Mary Kiratsos and Elizabeth Kirkpatrick doing. was one of my many interrogations. "They're taking up English, Spanish, German, and Scotch." "What!" I exclaimed. "That's rightg they're running the elevators in the Municipal Building." I concluded Geneva still had her witty way. PH . TUSITALA 79 Geneva left me, and I, bewildered by all the exciting informa- tion, hurried to my hotel room to write a detailed account of my eventful trip and all I had learned of former classmates to Helen, who was yearning for news of the old home town. ESTHER HA MILTI JN. PART III Here I am back in the United States again after a wonderful three months' buying trip abroad. Atlantic City certainly did look good to me when I arrived this morning! I found the shop in excellent condition and the books still more satisfying, all due to the conscientious work that Madeline is doing. It seems surprising how many familiar faces I've seen in the last few months. For instance, on the "Little Prince," coming over from Paris, I met Stephen VVhite, who has just nnished making a personal tour of the European nations. His latest play is appearing in New York soon. On board were, also, Harry Michaud and Robert Dayo who. with their charming partners, dazzled the eyes of all Paris with their latest and most intricate dance steps. Margaret I-lang and Helen Murphy were passengers, too. I was not surprised to see they were still together. Peggy is now a lit- erary critic for the VVorld Book Company, and Helen is private secretary to Mr. Leavitt, of the same company. Peggy is working on her nrst novel at the present time. I know she will succeed. Yesterday I met Yvette Caron at the San Moritz hotel in New York where she is living with her husband. VVe had a lot of news for each other. She tells me that VVinifred Hagerty is an estab- lished dietitian. NVinifred always wanted to be one, and I'm glad she has succeeded. Let's see how much other information I have about some of my high school classmates. Iidythe Mercer and Louise Ruf are both here in Atlantic City. "Louise's Hats" are very smart and very popular with the younger generation. Since Edythe's uncle left her that enormous sum of money she is thoroughly enjoying herself at the present time. Wlhich reminds me that Mr. and Mrs. Gordon McKay are also in New York City. Gordon has become a well known contractor. His wife is the former Lillian Trombly. Yvette tells me that Alphonse Backer is still a confirmed bach- elor, but his penthouse parties are all the rage. At the last party Were: John Carroll, bachelorg Cecile McIntosh, society column reporter on the New York Times, Wilfred Cote, bachelorg Paul Phelan, engaged in selling stocks and bondsg and Earle Morin, lawyer. She tells me also that Daisy Bean is quite an authority on cooking. Daisy has a daily column in the Times and broadcasts over the radio twice a week. ' 80 TUSITALA VVhen Madeline Noel had the shop re-decorated, Pierre sent his best decorator, and guess who it was! None other that Leo Bergeron. I'm glad to be able to tell Yvette and Madeline the latest news from Paris. For instance, how I met Helen Thompson on the boulevard one morning before she left for Nice to join her hus- band, a Mr. Parker Davieson, of New Yorkg also what a splendid success Raymond Russell and Elizabeth Smith have made of the "Tea Pot." This little tea room is the favorite haunt of both French and American people. I see by the morning paper that Mary Balukonis is the present United States tennis champion, and that Anna Skorb and Teddv Kopka are leaving to play tennis in the Olympic games, which are to be held soon. Herbert VVeymoutl1 is playing golf at Inverness at present. Here is an article in the paper about Helen Stacknis and Bar- bara Ford. They have just opened the "Modernistic School of Art" and according to this account, they seem to be making a tre- mendous success of the establishment. . . Here, on the news page, I see that Paul U'Brien is now a pilot in the United States Air Mail Service. At last he has achieved his heart's desire. VVhy, this is a report of Eleanor Champney's latest book. It is "Petals," a book of poems. I must read it. Speaking of Eleanor reminds me of Lorette Cormier. They were such good pals. To think that Lorette and Theodore Pappa- christos are now co-owners of the "New York School of Jour- nalism," though Teddy says he doesn't like being "b0ssed by a woman." I have a letter here from Amy Jacobs in Nashua. She has risen to the rank of manager in Woo1wortl1's Five-and-Ten. She tells me also of the following people who are still living in or near Nashua. Anna 'Chesson is private secretary to His Honor Judge Francoeur. Yes indeed, the same bashful "Tootie" we used to know at school. Ella Dooley is proprietor of the Dooley Nurs- ery. The trees and shrubbery she is raising are the pride of New England. VVilliam Malavich is working in one of the largest shoe- making factories in the United States. Sarah Rubin is head book- keeper in Besse l3ryant's Clothing Store. By the way, I3esse's has achieved tremendous popularity under the management of Ralph XVoods. Ralph, himself, has completely grown up and looks the part of a thoroughly successful manager. Katharyn Gilmore is happily married and is living in Nashua. Taphilia Waisolonis and Florence Bergevin are working in the High School, Taphilia as a substitute English teacher, and Florence as a cadet teacher in Algebra and Geometry. Frances Askham has just been appointed Assistant Editor-in- Chief of the Scholastic magazine. Congratulations, Frances! TUSITALA A 81 Esthe1' Hamilton is also doing "big things" in Nashua. She is assistant manager of the Parker House. She likes her work very well and is quite interested in the success of the hotel, which is one of Nashua's most exclusive buildings. Marguerite Hagerty was a visitor in Atlantic City a week ago, Madeline tells me. She is a trained nurse, and was on her summer vacation with Ruth Lyon, now a physical director at Posse Nissen. Speaking of nurses reminds me that Ruby Dunbar is now Super- visor of Nurses at Peter Bent Brigham. She told Madeline that Lionel Pinet is a Professor of Economics at Columbia University this year, and that Amy Shunaman is also a professor. She teaches English at Cornell University. Also that Eileen O'Neil has mar- ried a member of the titled Barton family of England, and they are now traveling. They will reside in England upon the completion of their trip. Madeline asked this morning if I had heard anything about Roger Morin recently. I am glad to be able to say that Roger holds the present world typing record: but then, do you recall when we used to gaze stupefied at Roger typing? Madeline is calling from the outer shop. It must be time for lunch. AGNES MacINNIS. PART IV September 10, 1957, I entered the office of the "Get Your Man" Detective Agency, situated on the ninety-ninth Hoor of Nashua's largest building. I entered the office unceremoniously, without re- gard to either typists or clerks, then entered the president's office without being paged. I had this privilege because I was the pres- ident! In my own easy chair, smoking my expensive five-cent cigars, was a man. Turning at my approach, I found to my sur- prise that he was Bernard 'fGus" Cederholm, my old classmate of twenty-live years ago. After the usual hearty handshake, I asked him whether this was a professional, or just merely a social call. "W'ell," said Gus, "it is both. l've come to see you and to get some news of some of my old classmates. You should know about them, your being a detective." "Yes," I replied, "we do keep tabs on people. NVell, of whom would you like to hear?" "Why, I'd like to hear about VVillia1n Taggart, Albert Kurto, Mary Reardon, Bennie Bausha, and-" "Hold on l" I broke in. "If you give them to me one at a time I'll tell you all I know, but before starting in, tell me about your- self" "There's not much to tell. I've become a professional sign- painter. I've the honor of having painted the largest sign known l" "No li' I said. "You don't say li' "Yes, you see I painted it by means of an airplane sky writing, 82 TUSITALA you know," said "Gus.', That greatly surprised me. "Gus" had Certainly risen in the world. After a minute's pause to get my breath I began to inform him what some of our classmates were doing. "Willian1 Taggart is the golf professional of Hudson Center. He has just won the United States Open Golf Championship. At the nineteenth hole 'Bill' drove his ball out-of-bounds, it hit a rock, and bounced into the hole for an eagle, giving him the title. "Albert Kurto, now known as 'Spike Palooka, has become the mosquito-weight boxing champion of the worldf, "XVhat has become of Mary Reardon?" asked "Gus" ' "O, Mary Reardon and Alyce Gleason have replaced the Dun- can Sisters in Hollywood. "Bennie Bausha and Siefar Bartas are now playing professional football." "Speaking of them reminds me of john Trainovich and his bosom friend, Joe Tubinis." - "They must have quite a reputation by nowf' I said. "Take it as you like," answered "Gus" Hjohn Trainovich has entered the North VVoods to become a hermit. He says he is now very happy, thereby proving'his theory that laziness is the key to happiness. Joe Tubinis has become a linguist and has joined the Navy. He's expecting to have a girl in every portf, After a hearty laugh I resumed my narrative. "Helen Sullivan and Anna Gelazauskas have become rich by having patented a new style pancake, in the form of spaghetti, which just slides down the throat." "Gus" interrupted to say,"'That reminds me-Did you know Ruth Fair has opened a Beauty Salon with the hope that Nashua may become famous for its 'bonnie lassies'?" "No, I didn't, but I knew Peter Novak had brought fame to 1932 as he has become a member of the United States Olympic Team. He has broken all records in the high-jump. 'Pete' always did yearn for the :dizzy heights'.', "Anthony Wfillett has become an orator of great renown. His fame was due in a large measure to his First oration, 'XN'hy I Prefer Oranges to Grapefruitf in which he stressed the point that a grape- fruit cannot be depended uponf, "VVe seem to be finding our classmates in all walks of life," said "Gus" "I rode up here in a car sold to me by Russell Moher. VVith his line he can sell a car to anyone. He knows all the good points and didnlt even mention the bad points." "What kind of a car is it?" I asked. "It was invented by George Richards. It doesn't use gasoline and runs on hot air only. The name is the 'Hot Air Specialf U "Well, that is news, but I have more for you. U- TUSITALA - 83 "Hilda Beechman has become a radio announcer. Every night she introduces Marion Ford who gives most interesting talks on 'What the Best Dressed XVomen Should Wear'." "Helyn Dublow has become a scientist and is trying to deter- mine why water is not a carbonated beverage." "Kenneth Trufant is now working on a new kind of unbreak- able glass. In his last demonstration he broke the glass." "We also have a diplomat from our class. Minnie Grigas has become an ambassador to Peru." "By the way," broke in "Gus" "I notice Nashua has a verv large, new skyscraper and an attractive-looking cafe." "Yes," I answered. "That building was designed and super- vised by Milton Ahrendt. At present he is producing smokeless chimneys. As to that cafe, you will be delighted to hear it is owned by Doris Shea. There is an interesting slogan there. It reads: 'Eat all you want, but don't forget the cashier as you leave'." "VVhat have you heard about Edna Smith?" 1 "Oh, Edna became an airplane enthusiast after she had her first ferris wheel ride in 1937." "Speaking of the air," said "Gus," "reminds me of Corona Kashulines. She has certainly risen in the world. You see she broke the women's altitude record for planes." "Bruce XVilliamson has also become air-minded. He owns the largest radio corporation in New York." " 'Cvusf the most interesting bit of news I have for you is that the Johnson Brothers have invented wings for pedestrians to help them across thoroughfares where the traffic is exceptionally heavy. They have made so much money that they are now rated as million- airesf' "Do you remeinber Frank Lacoshus?" "Yes, I heard Frank has opened a modern bowling alley with robots for pin boys. Past experiences had taught Frank that wood-- en pins sting at times." i'Arthur Christie has become a one-man band. The secret is that in the last few vears 'Artl has taken an International Corres- pondence course in Juggling." "Irene Verheyen has become a radio crooner. She sings in that delightful Maurice 'Chevalier dialectf' "Harry Theodoropoulos has become a very successful tragedi- an. He made his debut in Macbeth." "Ida Dickstein and Miriam Delinsky have become style design- ers for Nashua's leading newspaper, The Daily Record." "Speaking of newspapers," said "Gus',, 'Jreminds me of what I read this morning. 'jackie' Narkunas hit a home run with three on base, and won the Worlcl Series for the Nashua ball team. By the way, how is the city across the river coming along?" 34 TUSITIQLA, , "Oh! You mean Hudson! Hudson has a new mayor, a woman. She is Anne Huk. She won the election by a majority, polling live hundred votesf, Leaving politics behind, I continued with more information. "Ann Fisher has became a singer and is to appear in Grand Opera soon." "john Frankevicz, having become a distinguished scientist, has gone Iiinstein one better by bringing out the theory of the Fifth Dimension which no other living man can understand." "Helen Piviosky and Agnes Ermalovich are in Africa trying to educate the savages." "john VVirbal has recently won the Boston Athletic Association Marathonf' "Edgar Caron is manager, clerk, and sole owner of Nashua's largest shoe store. 'My shoes are guaranteed as far as the door.: savs Caron." Here I stopped and handed "Gush the morning paper. Un the front page was one of those Broadway Columns. "Say,', said "Gus," "This is written by 'Bill' Urquhart." "Yes, Bill can smell a scandal much faster than a fireman, a fire. No one's secret is safe from 'Bill's' columnf' "I guess I have told you all the news that I know about our class." "You haven't told me about Kendall Bancroft and Lauretta Levesquef' "Kendall Bancroft is the owner of a large dude ranch near Nashua. It is modeled after the old ranches of the W'est. Each clay Kendall fires a shotgun to make it sound like the VVild NVest. "l.auretta Levesque conducts a class in dancing, ballroom eti- quette, and good manners in general. Her course is an exception- ally popular one, attended by all the younger generation." Our conversation then took a more general trend before "Gus', departed, saying he hoped it wouldn't be very long before we should have a reunion of the class of l932. STANLEY S.-XKOXYICH. W S -' .
