HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1932
MILTON HARRY AHRENDT
"An rzmbitious student
With worthwhile ways."
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

Room 2. She loved new shoes, and we love het
golden hair. She had many friends.
"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

thought and study.
HILDA MAE BEECHMAN
"To mvvt mich day with 11. clzrcrful smile

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

eye you knew she could be mischievous.
- 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.
"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.

"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.

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.
"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."
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.

usual. Candy Girl at "That's That" III and at
"Pattie" IVQ Press Club IVQ Upper Fourth.
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

"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."
"'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.
"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.
"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

Lorette was for three years one of the

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."
WILFRED S. COTE

When "Bill" wanted to "make the team" he
never quit, and though he could not always

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.

Joe left all care to others, for he was busy en'

tucket Play Tournament he was the irrepressible

we all enjoyed seeing her pretty blue eyes
twinkle! 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'

so, since she won the Championship of the

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.

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

"Ted" was no sixffooter, but he certainly
showed his ability as an athlete. He gained a
place on the Football Team IV, played Basket'

ALBERT A. KURTO
"Why take life seriously!

"Al" was never serious. When he entered a

and almost always to the sorrow of the teacher.
He was liked by everybody who knew him.

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-
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
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
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.

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.

"Huck', VVey1nouth, "Allie" Backer, Alphonse Zedalis, and Steve

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.

The auditorium at last! The warm air inade our cheeks hurn-
cheeks that had so recently been whipped lmy a hrislq, llecenilwer
hreeze that hinted of a snowstorm. XVho was that good-looking
usher? XYas it possihle that anyone could attend lligh School four
years and never see these handsome fellows, or did they look dif-
ferent in their hest clothes?
Dear me-if only that woinan's head wasn't quite so large! Uh,

XYasn't 'she attractive? XYe must scan the program for her nanie.
Suddenly lat 8.15 sharpl a light Hashed, and the orchestra
stopped with a slight discord-lights Went out-and an expectant
hush filled the hall as the curtain rose. Nine hundred necks were
cianed to catch a glimpse of Mr. and Mrs. .Xrchihald and daughter
l.eila in the tastefully furnished lihrary of the ,Xrchihald home with
its red curtains, spinet desk. sofa. and lfrench windows. The prop-
erty connnittee had certainly done good work. lietty XYall was Mrs.
.Xrchilmald. and no one could fail to recognize charming "Peggy"
lflaug who was playing l,eila's part, hut who was Mr. .Xrchilmald?
llarry Theodoroplmulos? That niiddle-aged man couldn't he he!
Yet, that resonant voice could helong to no other. lJidn't liolw
XVhitney look stunning taking the part of Carter lirooks. the nice
young tnan next door? He certainly could wear clothes well.
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
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.

"Yes, Robert Clifford is the manager of the radio station while

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 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,

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.
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
"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
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
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
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." .
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,
"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.
. 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.
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
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,
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. '
VVhen Madeline Noel had the shop re-decorated, Pierre sent
his best decorator, and guess who it was! None other that Leo
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
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
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!

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.
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-
"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,
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
"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.

"Kenneth Trufant is now working on a new kind of unbreak-

"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."
