,QFLEHAI-A - 55
lt happened on VVednesday, September 4, 1929. What? The
class of 1933 entered the portals of Nashua High School, three
hundred and seventy-two strong. On the following Monday
there was held the first assembly of the year. Those were the
halycon days, when, as the seniors marched into the auditorium, all
the lower classmen rose and sang:
"Full long and drear our freshman year,
How gay our sophomore ways,
The junior year a prelude blithe
To glorious senior days."
There was a vast silence from the freshman section while the
sophomores and juniors sang lustily. But our civics and English
teachers promptly provided a remedy by making us learn the words
of the song as an assignment. The following week we joined into
the singing, now fully initiated.
After we had become settled and accustomed ourselves to our
new surroundings, Miss Doe started her instruction on how to use
the library. For about a week we might have been seen perusing
the encyclopedias, delving into Lincolnlv Library of Essential In-
formation for some erudite fact, or discovering what information
the dictionary had to offer. .
Early in their high school career, gifted members of our class
were giving evidence of their unusual abilities, thus foreshadowing
triumphs. Pauline Young played a violin solo at one assemblyg in
56,4140 H TUSITALA
the list of contributors to the Tattlcr for that year, we find
Marguerite Campbell, Thomas Moran, and .loan Proctor.
The class of 1935 may certainly say that the period of its stay
in high school has been characterized by greater changes than al-
most any other class has witnessed in a short period of four years.
ln the fall of 1929 came the epochal stock market crash, and the
beginning of the depression which was to affect our prospects of a
career after high school more than any of us realized at the time. At
almost the end of our freshman year practically all of the Crown
Hill section of the city was burned in the lire of May 4. Many of
our classmates lost their homes in the conllagration.
VVhen the class returned in September, it had undergone that
strange metamorphosis of freshman into sophomore. Hut we had
been deprived of the time-honored privilege of feeling superior to
the freshmen. Because the school had become too small to accom-
modate the increasing enrollment, Mr. Nesmith had to arrange an
afternoon session for the entering freshmen. In order to feel
properly superior, we sophomores had to go back to school in the
afternoon and strut down the corridors while the "freshies" passed
to their classes.
lt was on November 13 that the new Tloys' Hand lirst appeared
in costume. The boys of our class who appeared resplendent in
their snappy uniforms were Francis Small, Roland Larivee, Robert
llill, Ernest johnson, VVilliam Hill, liverett Swett, and Harold
In the A. A. Play of that year, Joan Proctor led the
When the new Tafilcr staff was announced on May 26, we
learned that joseph Tinker and Marguerite Campbell had been
awarded places on the staff. Ethel Stylianos had consistently con-
tributed poems and material to the Tattler during the year.
Our junior year was more or less similar to the preceding ones
in that it continued in the same round of studying and extra-cur-
ricular activities-that is, until class elections were held. At this
time we chose our officers for the year, who were to take promi-
nent parts in the biggest social event of the year-Qthe Junior Prom.
Those who stood at the head of the receiving line were
president, Joseph Malayg vice-president, Hildreth MacTnnisg busi-
ness manager, Henry Richardg and secretary, Jane Hunt. The
auditorium had been prettily decorated for the occasion by the art
classes under Miss jacques' supervision, Everyone agreed that the
prom was a great success.
Une of the best assemblies of the year came when Mrs. Grace
Morrison Poole addressed the student body on current events. At
another assembly, our silver-tongued orator, Peter Courtis, was
presented with the book which is awarded every year to the junior
boy in college preparatory class whose character and scholastic
,ig ,WTUSITALA --gg f 57
attainments are outstanding.
The Debating Club, most of whose talent at that time came from
the senior class, had two of our mates as members and active
speakers-Rabardy Floyd and Peter Courtis.
The leading part of the Athletic Association Play for our third
year was captured by Angeline Landry. Patlie was a huge success.
The first few months after our return to school for our senior
year were spent in acquiring a swaggering, jaunty air when march-
ing into assembly. After this had been accomplished, our able
class officers set about procuring samples of class rings. After a
mass meeting at which nothing was accomplished, 33's class ring
Un December 16, the class presented its annual dramatic per-
formance. The innovation of three one-act plays was a complete
success, judging by the cordial reception which Jazz and Minuet,
.Al lVvda'i11y, and The Valiant received. The Valiant was
awarded first place in the preliminaries of the New England Play
Acting Contest held at Manchester
Thomas Hansberry later wrote an original one-act play which
was judged the best performed for the New Hampshire Qriginal
One-Act Play Contest in Laconia in April.
The Tattlcr had the most successful year which our school
paper has ever had. This success was climaxed when Nashua
High, for the first time in its history, won the coveted first prize
in the Columbia interscholastic Press Association Contest. The
senior members of the staff were Marguerite Campbell, editor-in-
chief, Peter Courtis, Thomas Hansberry, Jennie Romanowski,
joseph Malay, Ethel Stylianos, Rachel Caron, Helen Kopka,
Rabardy Floyd, Joseph Tinker.
March 28 brought the most important assembly of the whole
year-Upper Fourth. Rachel Caron was announced valedictorian,
and Peter Courtis was unanimously elected Class Orator. There
were fifty-three on the upper quarter, thirteen of them with an A
We realized that the year was almost over, and that graduation
was just ahead when our ambitious seniors began to prepare for
the theme writing of the Dodge Contest. At the end of May, the
boys wrote their essays on some phase of early American History,
while the girls devoted themselves to the birds, bugs, animals, and
trees of our Merrimack Valley. At the Noyes Prize Speaking Con-
test held May 9, our trembling comrades rose and delivered
speeches on subjects ranging from the ultra-serious to the very
Following upon this were the three great events of Commence-
ment week-the Class Banquet, Senior Prom, and-Graduation.

Athletes? Wie should say the class of '35 has some athletes. Let
us go back to our freshman year and see "who's who" in the major
athletic sports of Nashua High School,
On the gridiron in l929 "Vincie" llackanowskas made the
varsity squad and helped his upper elassmen to win the State
Lliainpionsliip. llecause of the great number of candidates who
turned out, a Squad li was organized and coached by Tom Har-
groves. This squad was composed mostly of a few of our class-
mates and sophomores. lt had its own schedule and split about
even in winning and losing its games.
llasketball soon followed the football season. "joey" Malay
and "Hob" Hill were our class's contribution to this sport. They
helped the varsity to win eleven out of fourteen games and to send
them to the State Tournament held annually in Durham. The team
reached the finals, but West High of Manchester were the victors
by one basket.
liaseball season rolled around and Henry Richards was one of
the pitchers on the team. -loe Malay and Danny lVlurphy played on
the second team. The varsity had a hard schedule to play, but
pulled through the season winning most of its games.
During the same season as baseball comes track. "Vincie"
llackanowskas was our only representative on the team. He
tossed the javelin around like a "champ" and Coach Webstei' White
certainly kept his eye on this lad.
Sophomore year and another football season. The team did
not fare so well as to become champions, but it won most of its
games. "Vincie" Haekanowskas was our only regular on the team,
playing at end, but Waltei' llombl, George Papachristos, joseph
Tinker, Alphonse Degasis and t'Slick" Lekas were substitutes.
The basketball team with Joe Malay and Rob l-lill as substi-
tutes did pretty well this season and were invited to the State
Tournament. They, however, were eliminated in the lirst game by
St. joseph's of Manchester.
Our baseball team came out about even in its games this sea-
son. joe Malay and Danny Murphy both saw service, the former
at second base and the latter out in the left field. Henry Richards
did some line pitching for the team.
ln the lnterclass Track Meet our class placed second, the
seniors being the winners. Backanowskas was the star of the
meet. He placed the most points and almost by himself won our
The Track Team won most of its meets. "Vincie" llack-
anowskas was a star on the team. llob Hill won his letter by toss-
ing the discus. Other members of our class who participated were
joe llusi, Robert Nute, and Alphonse Degasis.
On the football field our junior year, "Vincie" llackanowskas
our star end, Walter llombl, Joseph Tinker, "Slick" Lekas,
Alphonse Degasis, "Denier" Stephanos, George Papachristos, and
two new classmates who came to this city, "Wally" Ahrendt and
"Eddie" Gorman were our class representatives in this sport. The
team was considered "green," and won only three games.
Our track coach, Mr. XfVhite, had organized a Cross-Country
Team. The team contested mainly against Concord and Manches-
ter High Schools, but was unable to win any meet. Robert Nute,
joe llusi, Leo St. Denis, and VVilliam Hill were our class members
on the team.
Basketball season also had a very hard schedule and came out
about even in its games, but it was entered in the State Tourna-
ment. Joe Malay played forward on the team while liob Hill was
the star center. The former was elected captain for next year's
With the warm weather approaching, the baseball season rolled
around once more. joe Malay had a tirm position at second base
while Danny Murphy, our next year's captain, covered the left
tield. lloth boys played very well throughout the season. Henry
Richards was ineligible to play because of his being over-age.
ln the lnterclass Track Meet this year we won the meet and
had our class numerals engraved on the Swart Trophy. Qui'
athletes on the track squad were quite numerous. Lettermen we1'e

Alphonse Degasis, "Demerl' Stephanos, Dick Spring, Jimmie Lekas
and Ernest Johnson. "Vincie" llackanowskas came within an inch
of tying the shot put record of the high schools of the state and
tied the javelin record.
Our last year has arrived, our last football season, and the last
time some members of our class have donned the colors of our
school. The team, due to some kind of a "jimi," was unable to

score in live of its games. lt tied one game and won only one, that
being with our weakest opponent, the l'ortsmouth team. Through-
out the season we scored only fourteen points, but no opponent
scored more than one touchdown on us except Lowell. The score
ofthe Lowell game was 19 to U. "Vineie" llackanowskas, our
captain, played exceptionally well, and his teammates depended very
much upon him. Jimmie l.ekas, "Denier" Stephanos, "llerwanger"
Ahrendt, played in the backlield in most of the games while
Alphonse llegasis, who saw some action only at the end of the
season because of an injured ankle, also was a backman. Ainong
the linemen who won their letters were joe Tinker. VValter llombl,
George l'apachristos, and Clarence Fair.
Hur Cross-Llountry Team won one ol' its three meets this year.
Manager hloe llusi, Robert Nute, Dick Spring, l.eo St. llenis, Ralph
Naples, and William Hill, Nelson lllack, Vincent lXlunton, and
Rabardy Ifloyd composed the larger part of the team from our
Our last basketball season also has come. For the last time
Captain joe Malay, llob Hill, and Stanley Lipnick have worn the
school colors in basketball. The team was coached by Tom Har-
groves. Although the team won most of its games in a very long
schedule it was to our surprise that we were not entered in the
Alas! lflecause of depression our officials have decided to elimi-
nate baseball this year. A team with Captain Daniel Murphy
would have been on the field this year, a team which we feel would
have been the best for many years, but, alas!
As yet, up to this writing, our track team has not been organ-
ized, but the squad is greater than ever before, as many baseball
players have turned their interests to track. Coach VVhite has ex-
cellent prospects of a very good track team.
Through the line coaching' efforts of Ray Pendleton, Herman
llarker, Tom Hargroves, and Webstei' White and the inspiration
received from the class of 1933, and the rest of the school, these
athletes have made a line name for themselves and their school.
This school has turned out some of the country's best athletes in
past years and we all sincerely hope that it will continue to do so in
the future. JOSEPH STAPANON.
JAZZ AND MINUET THE VALIANT A WEDDING
Senior Pla 5
VVhat a restless tnootl the seniors were in December lo, 1932,
the night they were to exhihit their clralnatic ahilitiesl Anil what
abilities! This was the lirst year that any class hail ilaretl to
ileviate from its usual three-act play. The three one-acts about to

gave more stutlents an opportunity of developing' their talent.
Vtloulil they prove successful? As the curtain rose for the tirst
performance, the air was tense with excitement.
llut there was no need for anxiety. The plays went oil' with-
out a hitch. Consiclering the success of our plays, we venture to
guess that hereafter many classes will follow our example ancl also
protluce an intermixetl program.
The stage was appropriately as well as attractively set. For
the lirst time a new beige cyclorama, which matle an excellent hack-
grouncl. was usecl. For the labor of making anrl ltanging it. thanks
are clue to Bliss Ruth llills ancl girls from the Senior home eco-
nomics classes. anal ltlr. lfrnest ltlartin antl boys from the manual
"jazz and Minuet" by Ruth Giorloff was a comedy with a
flashback scene to the eighteenth century. Eleanor Van Hayden,
disappointed by her sweetheart, induced a young man of question-
able character to escort her to a masquerade. Having received the
diary of her great-great-aunt, she suddenlv fell asleep while read-
ing it. Then we had a scene which had taken place about one
hundred and fifty years ago at the home of Great-Great-Aunt
Prudence. The latter had received a scurrilous fellow. To her
rescue came her lover, who in a duel with the villain was killed.
Eleanor soon awakened penitent and contrite and-the usual happy
ending followed. Roberta Morrill as Eleanor Van Hayden C"I'm
going, I'm going, and that settles ituj, and Great-Great-Aunt Pru-
dence played her part convincingly, Pauline Moran as her sympa-
thetic mother gave a creditable performance. In the role of
villain Richard Ryan delighted the audience, especially with his
dancing! Richard Clement, the faithful fiance of both Eleanor
and her great-great-aunt, was an ideal hero, and made our girlish
hearts flutter. Madeline Gallant, as the Van Hayden maid, and
Helen Kopka as Prudence's maid. did much to provide a realistic
atmosphere. The costumes and picturesqueness of the scene
brought even greater reality to the act.
'fThe Valiant" by Holworthv Hall and Robert Middlemas was
pure tragedy, and drew tears from the most hard-hearted.
Alphonse Degasis as the prisoner about to be executed gave a
superb performance. llaving murdered a man, he was concealing
his identitv and shielding his family from disgrace. True to his
character, he went to his death uttering the words:
"Cowards die many times before their death,
The valiant never taste of death but once."
Though difficult, the play was exceedingly well enacted, and the
actors covered themselves with glory. Peter Courtis, as the
warden, deserves a great deal of praise for giving a finished per-
formance, and Thomas Hansherrv as the chaplain also did good
work. Betty Lee. as the unknowing sister, showed us what a good
actress can do with a difficult part. Joseph Tinker and Joseph
Malay as a jailer. and an attendant respectively. helped maintain
the seriousness and sincerity of the perfo1'mance.
"A VVedding," bv Tohn Kirkpatrick, a farce, ludicrous from
start to finish, brought laughter to drv the tears of the preceding
tragedy. Thomas Moran gave a laudable characterization of the
groom who almost lost his bride because of a collar button that
simplv wouldn't be found. During the heated arguments that
arose, the bride and groom learned much about each other's char-
acter. Didn't we learn something, too, when Tommv said, "You
can love a woman and treat her any wayn? When the groom an-
nounced 'fThere isn't going to be any wedding," we hearers became
disheartened, but matters were satisfactorily settled and "they lived
happily ever after." Barbara lNillard as the lovely bride was ex-
cellent. and the assisting cast was extremely capable. VVillian1
Foster, "that Archie person," was the best man, being helpful t?5

teachers who so willingly lent their aid and time, and worked
whole-heartedly to make these plays a success. To Miss Cornell.
the coach, the class owes a great debt and sincerely thanks her as
also the other teachers. Approximately seventy-live persons were
involved in the production, making it a real class project, and the
co-operative spirit of the whole group was estimable.

the right to explore all lights for spit-balls and chalk. VVe also
leave them the right to admire, at their leisure, the artistic decora-

TWENTY-THIRD. We bequeath to the Freshmen the sug-
gestion that they come to this building on some dark night to hunt

corridors. tSome Seniors really should be taken along for protec'

chains are prevalent here!j
Done on the sixteenth day of March, in the year of our Lord,
One Thousand Nine Hundred and Thirty-three in the presence of
Class of 1933,
lt was the summer of 1943. l had just arrived in Nashua to
interview the famous inventor, an old classmate of mine. Profes-
sor Richard Gray, who, with his hard working assistant, Vincent
Rlnnton, had just invented a square hot dog which could not slip
from the roll. All the hot dog eaters had thronged to Nashua
eager to meet the inventor. Here was the place, no doubt. where
I would surely see some dear old N. H. S. classmates.
As I walked down Main Street, noticing with puzzled glances
all the "Ray and Andy" filling stations, whom should l encounter
hut my pal Catherine tlJizzieJ Daly, now a smart young wife.
"You look puzzled, Elinor," she said. "Didn't you know
Rachel lXlarkarian and Andrea Lekas had gone into the business?
Say, you must be hungry. Let's go into Andrew l"einman's
restaurant. lt's quite nice."
Together we walked into the spacious dining hall. The
strains of soft music reached my ears. Upon looking np, l
recognized Rudy Larivee leading a women's orchestra in which
-lulia Vaskevich was playing a saxaphone. Angie Landry was
singing the refrain of Walter' Lucien's new jazz hit. "NVaxie"
was a popular song writer, now.
"Shall we try one of Kenneth Leach's dinners? He's a
marvelous chef. You no doubt have heard of his fame."
Hlleally? llut then, our class had quite a few famous people
in it. lileanor Hogquist, that great comic actress on stage and
screen, is from our class. llarbara Lee, the dramatist, writes
beautiful plays. l see her occasionally in the literary circles in
New York. Rose Lindsay has set a world record in women's Ily-
ing lay her non-stop Hight around the world. And of course
you've seen 'Viv' Labine's magazine illustrations. VVho ever
thought her art was anything more than a joke? llut tell me
something about the kids in town."
f'W'ell, let me see-," said Dizzie. f'Tommy Mizoras runs
an athletic training school. He's the one who 'found' lloh Nute,
the national champion sprinter. His sffccd is amazing. john
Aksilowicz is one of Tommy's assistants."
"Marjorie Carrier, Cecile Dumont, and Ethel Freeman are
nurses. Their unending efforts have brought about a higher
standard for nurses' salaries. Veronica Fessenden teaches Eng-
lish at N. H. S., Evelyn Lovejoy teaches art there, and Eva Gin-
gras, history. By the way, have you ever heard what happened
to joe Tinker?"
"Why, I see Joe every day when I'm working in New York.
He's on the same paper as I. Sports writer. He's considered one
of the leading authorities on girls' basketball. Ethel Stylianos
works with us, too-a literary critic. I suppose you've read her
book Poetry to Eat, Drink, and Digest? It's clever, very original.
You remember Marjorie Griffin, don't you? The man-hater?
Well, has she changed! She married a handsome young doctor
about four years after graduation. They have a lovely home in
Melrose, and the cutest son! Bobby Junior. Marguerite Winn
has become famous as a modiste in Ruth Bourdon's dress shop in
just then our conversation was interrupted by a "newsy"
outside shouting "Extry! Extry! All about the new speed rec-
ord! Gene Spratt hits eight hundred mile rate in his new 'rocket
By this time we had finished dinner. When we stopped to
pay the bill, I noticed the cashier to be none other than Aileen
Averill. As Dizzie and I then proceeded to walk down Main
Street, we ran into Ruthie Barron just entering Lucille Lessard's
beauty shop. Here I was told Blanche Barlowe and Helena
G'Brien also spent their time laboring. Ruthie ran a dancing
school where she taught girls to avoid the heavy feet of masculine
Suddenly Dizzie said in a low voice, "Don't look to your left.
You'll be lured in." When I thought it was safe, I asked the reason
for the avoidance.
"Well, you see, Pauline Pelletier and Rebecca LaRose own
a hat shop. Becky stands outside telling jokes to draw in the
crowd, then Pauline proceeds with her dynamic sales talk. I tell
you it's a racket."
Dizzie left me then to go into Kay's Douglmut Slzoppc.
Catherine Hagerty had gone into this business after her husband,
Russ Widener, had left her to join one of the big ping pong
leagues. Russ was a champ.
Alone I continued my trip through the city. I bought a copy
of the Hourly Times, a local newspaper edited every hour of the
day by Louise Kelly and Helen Kopka. I glanced over the per-
sonals, now printed on the front page for convenience, and read,
"Miss Rita LaPlante, having sufficiently recovered from acute
coryza, has resumed her duties as head librarian at the Nashua
Public Library." I continued to read until I came across the
words, "Alphonse Degasis, Undertaker, has returned from a trip

down South, and is eagerly awaiting victims." Good old Puppy.
This was too much for me, so I turned to another page, and read,
"Miss jane Hunt, social service worker, today established a home
for blind mice, an institution financed by our Mayor, the honor-
able Kenneth R. Dion." Imagine my surprise at reading this about
my pal Kenny!
I read the advertisements :-"Men! Buy your summer clothes
at Benny Markaverich's. All the latest styles"g and again, "Buy at
the Bessie System store--Bessie Weisman and Bessie Carasf'
Suddenly I looked at my "finger" watch, designed, by the way,
by Bob Taylor-a real work of art-and realized I must hurry if I
wished to get back to New York to cover the concert at which the
great violinist, Pauline Young, was playing for the first time since
she had returned from Europe. I rushed to the airport which was
under the direction of joe Uzdarwin, climbed into my Floyd mono-
plane, a delightful little craft built by F. Rabardy Floyd, the in-
ventor, and went sailing through the clear sky, realizing that after
all, it was a small world. ELINOR DINAN.
1950! And here I am back in dear old Nashua again! Ten
years have passed since I set out on that most famous of famous
trips with the honorable Doctor joseph P. Malay, A. D., B. G., and
X. Y. Z., for the purpose of finding out why there are more blondes
than red heads on Mars. Ten years! As I look back upon them,
1 cannot help wondering at the great changes which they have
wrought. Thousands of miles away we have left Barbara Willard
and Frances Newman in a little pink schoolhouse on Mars, teach-
ing English and Latin to little Martinis. Still farther away on one
of the lesser planets we have left Ralph Naples and Stanley Lip-
nick, experts on the art of making noise, who will endeavor to teach
the fundamentals of their art to the deaf and dumb inhabitants of
said planet. Even now as I talk, there rolls along behind me an
automatic typing machine, and there, seated at the wheel is that far-
famed sob sister, Marguerite Campbell, pounding out the latest story
of the aspirations of that noted stunt Hier, Sylvester Antonovich.
Suddenly as I walk along I hear a great bellowing voice crying,
"Peanuts, popcorn, and potato chips," and looking up, whom do I
see but my old pal Nelson Black riding down the street on a bicycle.
After exchanging affectionate greetings with "Nellie," I climb upon
the side-car of his machine and the two of us set out to see the
town. As we pass the enormous new "Met" Theatre, there staring
me in the face are the newly-painted posters of the latest feature
pictures, and in spite of the efforts of that great artist, Mildred
Younis, l am able to recognize the countenances of Eleanor Dane,
the "Hit" girl in "Knock 'em Cold," Elizabeth Lee and Peter
Murauckas in !'Tomoi-row," and the great james Lekas in "Tough
Bozof' After this shock, we manage to move along to the Public
Service building where Alyce O'Neil and George Elliott are giving
lectures on "You and Your Diet" when suddenly there comes before
our eyes, the majestic form of Walter Bombl, in the magnificent
outfit of a doorman. After pausing for a moment with Walter, we
roll along the cafe where Mary Powell is busy flipping griddle cakes
in the window, and are soon past the school for models where
Jennie Romanowski and Joseph Belanger are teaching the latest
poses to their pupils in preparation for the spring style show.
A few minutes later we arrive at the lot where the famous con-
tractor, Robert L. Peacock, is building the new library. There We
find William Backanowskas, who is tossing bricks from the ground
to the tenth floor where Leo Arsenault catches some of them and
uses them to build the wall. On a staging at the fifth Hoor stand
Donald Rolfe and Joseph Stapanon, holding a huge life net with
which they catch the bricks falling from aloft. Far above at a
little desk on the twentieth iioor sits Lucille Caron typing the serial
numbers of the rivets which William Barry is using in the steel
framework, and a few Hoors higher up we find those famous mara-
thon-llagpole dancers, Louise Boucher and Raoul Levesque, going
through their paces.
Getting down to earth again, we hear a distant wailing as of a
herd of cats in agony. After some effort we manage to trace the
sound to the radio station a few blocks down the street. Entering
the studio, we hear a soft liquid voice announcing "Wynita and her
violin," and there at the microphone is that famous radio an-
nouncer, Michael Paskevich, and near him Wynita Abbott and Sam
Weisman, who have become extremely popular in their Abbott-
Weisman act. However, after listening for a few moments, cir-
cumstances force us to leave, and we continue our sight-seeing trip.
A few minutes later as we near the high school, we hear the
roaring of a high-powered motor, and watch a huge police car stop
before the school. What is our surprise when we see Adrian Fields
and Wenonah Hayward rush forth and enter the school at the head
of the women's riot squad! After due investigation, we discover
that the girls' history class had become so enthusiastic at the
crooning of the new history teacher, Edmund Jozaitis, that the
principal, Richard Spring, has been forced to call the police. After
the riot has quieted down, and after the school nurse, Edith
Kamenske, has bandaged the wounded, "Nellie', and I proceed to Ida
Martin's new candy shoppe, where we manage to do away with
After lunch we manage to get around to the opera house where
those famous singers, Madeline Gallant and Agnes Lemay, are an-
nihilating perfectly good songs. However, we are unable to stay
there for any length of time, and so we move along to the city hall
where Pauline Moran, the United States Senator, is introducing
that famous football star, George Papachristos. After listening to
., .. ,..M.-i...n
TUSIQALA - W-U 73
the speeches of the police commissioner, Yvonne Desprez, and the
fire chief, Lionel Soucy, we climb the stairs to visit William Goy,
who is polishing the bronze eagle on the roof. From this vantage
point we are able to see Charles Barry, the stunt man, walking a
tight rope across the river, and Marjorie Lynn playing ping pong
with Daniel Murphy on the wall of the Main Street bridge.
A few minutes later we are attracted by a roaring in the street
and descend to the ground tloor in the elevator run by Grace Con-
nell. What is our surprise when we find that famous lion tamer,
Julia Valent, giving an exhibition in the street! We are having a
line time until the chief of police, Robert Hill, arrives and puts a
stop to it.
And now to end a perfect day, we drive out of the city for
about a mile to the place where Lorette Laliberte and Allen Wells
have built a home for homeless cats, and thus ends our sight-seeing
trip in the old home town. THOMAS HANSHICRRY.
When a snorting, puffing freight train shuffled away from the
Union Station, on a bright November morning, it left behind, a
ragged, tattered, unshaved tramp. This tramp wore a cynical twist
to his mouth, and a cynical expression around his eyes. All tramps
wear some sort of expression around their eyes and mouths, and
shoes with holes in them. In this last particular, our tramp was no
Nashua, his home town! Well, what of it? Was he going
into ecstasies? Was he going to do a dance?
A passenger train drew in from Manchester. Among many
others, a familiar looking man carrying a brief-case left the side of
the building and walked toward one of the cars. Ujimmy Hick-
ford," breathed the tramp, recognizing his former classmate, "a
bond salesman, most likely, commuting to Boston. I thought he'd
become a designer, or a manufacturer of jumping jacksf, His mind
had taken him back to the recesses he had spent watching jimmy
bobbing around, spilling someone's soup every three bobs.
Finishing his reflections in this direction, and having put in the
corner of his cynical mouth the butt of the cigarette Jimmy had
thrown away, the tramp ambled off towards Canal Street. He
ambled into a saloon because he had recognized, with some difficulty,
"Duke" Foster, wiping the bar.
t'Who ?" asked "Duke" "l'm very sorry, my good man, but I
can't recall ever having known you."
At a signal from the bartender, Wallace Ahrendt, "Ed" Gor-
man, and Conrad Ducharme, official "bouncers," ungently ushered
the smirking schoolmate of former times to the swinging doors,
through which he was hurled with unnecessary violence. As he
arose from the unyielding concrete he found himself face to face
with a broad-shouldered, blue-uniformed person.
"On your way, bum! Clear town
The tramp snickered. Another classmate, Clarence Fair,
copper! He sauntered away.
He saw many interesting sights as he tramped the streets of
Nashua, but none that destroyed his nonchalance. He saw saloon
after saloon advertising Robert Knuepfer's Brew, he saw Cleo St.
Francois selling his poetry on a street corner, he registered but
bland surprise when he saw John Starks named as minister on the
bulletin board in front of a little white church. He saw a truck
bearing a sign denoting the fact that the truck belonged to the
Lucien Vignault Contracting Company, parked in front of the little
white church. He saw the agile form of Frank Pazniokas strad-
dling the top of the Steeple, tapping shingles with a hammer. He
saw the Reverend Mr. Starks himself, inspecting the job from the
ground, and beside him the figure of a monstrously stout woman.
This was john's wife, imported, by the way, from some German
castle on the Rhine. john had evidently brought home the mother
of one of those exotic European beauties he used to love to talk
As the tramp walked the streets of Nashua that he had left
many years before, he found them much the same as he had left
them. He saw the faces of so many people he had been intimately
acquainted with as a boy, that each new one was easier to recognize
and brought back more vivid details to associate with his school-
days. What pleasant recollections were afforded when he saw a
curly-headed dog-catcher bounding clumsily down the middle of
Main Street, brandishing a huge net above his head, regardless of
traffic, indifferent to the taunts of small boys, his heart and soul
intent upon the chase, his proboscis keen upon the scent of a rare
breed of mongrel-Frank Urgelevicz!
The tramp's ears were viciously assaulted by music played by
the Salvation Army Band, under the direction of Harold Brewer,
who also was singing the hymns with vigor and fervor. Q"Bing"
sure did poison the airlj Suddenly "Bing's" golden voice was
forced off the standard, as down the street there came a blare of
cornets, a flare of wide-cuffed trousers. A parade band led by Bill
Holster, attired in skirts, was followed by a long retinue of trousered
females led by Florence Manley. Gertrude Marsh and Caroline
Goy held aloft a gigantic banner proclaiming the desirability of
freedom in feminine attire. Doris Bean and Lucille Richard rushed
from their flower shop to cheer on the crusaders. Among the many
lookers-on, the tramp overheard Annie Kissel condemn the move-
ment to a diminutive, hen-peeked man whom the tramp surmised
to be Anniels husband.
The parade had passed. Again the discordant tunes produced
under B1-ewer's tutelage assailed the ears of the tramp. He fled

down the street. Hy the time he had reached Nashua's largest de-
partment store, operated by Dorothea Lovett, Lillian Levesque, and
Mildred Landry, in which he saw Josephine Clark and Phyllis
Anderson skillfully arranging the window display, he had left the
rasping tones far enough behind. The tramp continued to walk up
and down the part of the business section farthest from Brewer's
Harmonizers. He saw Christo Scontsas bossing a small anny of
shoe-shiners in Themistocles Stephanos's Arabian Parlors. He saw
Achilles Caros, wearing the same old apron, seated on the same old
barrel in the same old grocery store, munching the same old apple,
He saw Everett Swett reclining on a billowing "Sleepeasy" mat-
tress in the window of Ruth Miners furniture store. "Bo" was
clad in black silk pajamas. A small placard stated that the pajamas
were donated by the Comfy Clothes Shop, Stella Vasluck,
The tramp glanced through the door of the "Altarum" book
store, and saw there Atla Saunders and Alta Sherwood. He licked
his chops while gazing at all the good things to eat in Yvette Robi-
chaud's Pastry Shop. He noticed an especially well advertised
Beauty Parlor, claiming the superiority of the skill of Dorothy
Gendron and her understudies, and of the new Clark Anderson
Permanent Wave Method.
The tramp scrutinized the signs on the second floors of the
office buildings, the same buildings he had known as a boy, where
he had expected some day to hang out his own shingle. "Two
prominent physicians'in the Nutt Building," he surmised, "John
McLaughlin and Henry Richards." He saw the Ruth Sudsbury
School of Finance, and Rita Shea's night club, the "Wheeo Rita."
He saw Ruth Williamson come out of the Municipal Building, get
into a Ford "school nurse" car, and drive away. He saw a motor-
cycle cop whiz by in pursuit of a motorist who was speeding up
Library Hill. The cop did not pass too quickly, however, for the
tramp to recognize the grim face of William Hill.
An army marches on its stomach, a tramp walks on his feet,
but this was one tramp who was hungry enough to see the pointless-
ness of inspecting a town in which there was nothing new to amuse
him after an absence of sixteen or seventeen years. Therefore he
decided to go home. He didn't know what to expect when he
reached the little white house. When he opened the gate he was
confronted by a huge, bristling, black dog. The tramp hesitated, a
white-haired lady appeared at the door, instantly recognized her
long-absent son, spoke to the dog, which slinked aside, and wel-
comed her boy with outstretched arms.
Our tramp was not very emotional. After the preliminary
greetings, he told his mother he was hungry. She set the table with
a bounteous repast for the prodigal son. He fell to eating and
kept his eyes glued to the plate. The mother asked questions to
which she received short, curt, or no answers at all, whereupon she
W' "" W ' ' "
delivered an impromptu lecture, Haying the carefree existence of
her wandering son. She pointed out the opportunities he had lost.
She gave examples of successful men and women among his
former friends: Rachel Caron, the first woman Governor of New
Hampshire, Richard Clement, a lieutenant in the navy, decorated
for bravery during the Japanese War, Peter Courtis, the youngest
member of the United States Senate. She tried to persaude him
to renew his connections in Nashua.
The tramp grunted. f'Connections! I was in Hollywood,
recently. I tried to see 'l3ubu, Berube, the comedian. I was
thrown out of the studio. Earle Mason is the Chief of Police, in
Watei'town, but l spent a night in jail there, just the same. Law-
rence Potter is a banker in Pennsylvania. I saw him go into the
bank one morning. I waited around until noon, when he came out,
just to say hello to him. I stepped up to him and spoke. He stared
at me, handed me a dime, and drove off in his car. I was in New
York. I saw Elinor Dinan's name in big lights. I waited outside
the stage door for her. I wasnlt hungry, either. When she came
out, I called her by her first name. That was a mistake, I guess.
She turned and said, ASir!' just like that. Her millionaire escort
gave me a shove with the point of his cane, and all the newspaper-
men gave me the haw-haw. I had a job in Chicago, once. I had a
good suit and a pair of shined shoes. Tom Hansberry, the promis-
ing young playwright, was there at the time. He had just written
'Boa Constrictorsf I called at his suite in a ritzy hotel, to renew
acquaintance. I gave my name to his secretary, told him I was
from Hansberry's home town. He almost sneered at me when he
heard that. He went into the next room, and came back to tell me
Hansberry wasn't in. Pete Courtis was the Senator that intro-
duced the bill about making vagrants of southern states pick cotton.
I was in Alabama when it went into effect."
It was late afternoon when the tramp returned to the Union
Station. Richard Manning Matthew Ryan, internationally famous
financier, was seated on the observation platform of his private
train as it pulled away from the depot. The tramp hitched up his
unsupported trousers and swung into his stride along the ties to-
ward Lowell. TI-IQMAS F. MORAN, JR.
It was the year 1948 before I was given an opportunity to re-
turn to Nashua, the scene of my high school days. At last, how-
ever, Nashua was to receive the benefit of one of the startling
performances of my group of Shakespearean players. The en-
thusiasm displayed by this group when I imparted the news to them,
was indescribable. I knew by their rapturous expressions that the
performance they would present Nashua would be one never before
equaled in their career.
Arriving at Nashua on our special train, imagine our embarrass-
ment, to find two nonchalant reporters awaiting us at the station.
Closer investigation drove away our trepidations as they proved to
be Sophie Simutis and Ruth Marcus. Glad cries of recognition
rang out. You see my cast was composed for the most part of
Nashua High graduates of '33, Whizzing by Nashua's beautiful
new theatre, owned by Allie Dwyer, on our way to the hotel ac-
companied by our reporter friends, we noticed a big sign by the
theatre door which read:
Shakespearean Players of New York present The .Mcrclzant of
Vvziicv with the following cast: Rosalyn Pastor, Portia: Hildreth
Maclnnis, .Iessicag Dorothy Maher, Nerissa, Helen Barnard, Shy-
lockg Gladys lloutilier, lflassaniog Myrta Leach, Launcelotg Annette
Marquis, Antoniog Ruth Smith, Gratianog followed by an effusive
"tirade" on the noteworthy performance. A thrill of pride surged
On reaching our hotel, we granted Sophie and Ruth an inter-
view for publication, which consisted mostly of questions on our
part: "Where are all our old friends? Have you heard anything
of Gladys Knight, .or joseph Busi?"
The girls took it good-naturedly and attempted to answer this
battery of questions.
"Well," said Sophie, "Gladys is doing remarkably well in her
chewing gum business. She certainly has a head for business. They
say she's hurting Wrigley's badly. Jo is doing well, too. He's
Nashua's busiest accountant 11ow, dashing madly here and there,
helping poor little bookkeepers in distress. He has never had to be
called in to assist Genevieve Lapeza or Euphemia Andrews, how-
ever, much to his regret. You see they turned out to be the answer
to a poor business man's prayer for perfect secretaries."
We were not the only ones who had questions to ask, as we
"As recent residents of New York you must have run up
against some of our old friends," said Ruth.
"You've no doubt heard about that famous Fifth Avenue estab-
lishment run by Madame Chartierf' I replied. "Well, that happens
to be Bertha, and how she dictates fashions to Paris! Martha
Harkaway is her head model and designer. Together they design
all our costumes. We would be lost without them. Then, too, as
I was leaving New York I met Betty Morton, just back from a
concert tour of Europe. The continental music world was highly
appreciative of her art. They proclaim her to have a power and
touch equal to Paderewski. She told me she saw Ioan Proctor
while in Berlin. joan is so very successful in a new opera playing
there, that she plans to reside there indefinitely.
"Did you hear of the new aviation trip planned by Reighmond
78 - TUs1TA1.A
Varney and Kenny Moulton? New York is agog with enthusiasm
over those two, and their thrilling adventures. But really, it's get-
ting late. Weill no doubt see you at the theatre, and do write a nice
review on the performance."
After cautioning my troupe to be prompt at the theatre, I de-
cided to see the town. Strolling down the busy main street,I
thoroughly enjoyed seeing evidences of my classmates' success. As
I strolled along I noticed workmen painting over the letters of a
weather-beaten sign which read-National Market Chain, Donald
Holt, Mgr. Over a modern drug store I beheld Harald Recd,
Druggist and another sign Roland Prozxcrzcher ci' John Kafka,
Dyers. As I meandered along, I suddenly halted before a lovely
little shop and read Mary Kibble 65' Marguerite Gagne, Beauficians.
Because of my untimely pause, a hurrying figure scurried out of
the shop and crashed into me, completely wrecking my dignity and
producing a large bump on my poor head. Crossly rubbing my in-
jured member, I was surprised and rather vexed to hear a giggle,
and glancing up to see the cause of such mirth I beheld Frances
"The world is small" said Frances. "Whoeve1' dreamed of
meeting you? I'm in a dreadful hurry. 'You see Gladys Berni-
kowicz just gave me a wave, and I'm late now. Yes, she works in
there. However, I'd like to see you. Wouldn't you just love to
visit Nashua slums with me? I make a weekly tour. You'd ap-
preciate our wonderful work toward better civic conditions, I'm
"So Frances did become a social worker!" I mused.
Declining the proffered invitation as gracefully as possible, I
asked Frances if she could spare a moment to tell me any news
"Well,-" she answered. "Oh, yes, you remember Eva Iiagis.
Did you know she won a prominent case in court the other day?
She's very successful. Gwendolyn Chisholm is also a lawyer and
seems to love it."
Remembering a few high school budding romances I ventured
"Were there no marital undertakings in our graduating class?"
"Of course!" Qagain came Frances' gigglej "There were some
brave souls. Mary Stapanon has become quite domesticated. Has
beautiful twins. The Tamulonises married, also. Did you read
about the big double wedding? You see, they married brothers.

"VVhy," said Frances, "Tommy's everyones pride and joy here-
abouts. I-Ie has made quite a name for himself as a criminal
lawyer. We surely are proud of him.',
"There!" I sighed to myself. I could never forget how I had
longed to place that dramatic lawyer talent of his in the role of
Portia. I could just imagine his portrayal of the mercy speech!
I-Iowever, he had been insulted by the mere suggestion, although I
had tried to influence him by saying that in Shakespeare's day in
contrast to my troupe all the parts were played by men. All to no
"NVell, Frances, I suppose you must hurry, and so should I.
Hildreth, one of mv leading actresses, might decide to skip out for
a visit to dear old Hudson, and that woud never do."
On my way back to the hotel I paused at a newstand which
bore the sign Hlnternational Paper Company, Incorporated, I-Iobart
Tipping, Mgr." Securing the latest edition of news I strolled
along, reading the theatrical sheet. I saw where Roberta Morrill's
new musical comedy, Rhytlznz Bubbles, was to be released soon.
Elaine Lucier was also in the production as leading dancer. An-
other notice caught my eye. Felicia Alukonis and Cecile Cote were
returning, I saw, to the hospital they managed in Switzerland, after
a short vacation here.
Walking along worrying about the evening's performance, I
was surprised to see Doris Pederzani emerging from a parked
roadster. My. but that girl looked chic! No wonder! I later
learned that she was Nashua's social leader, and quite a busy

world. What about Blanche Plouf and Felicia Zinkawich,

Was Doris being ironical? I wondered. I thought perhaps
she would be interested in news of classmates I had met in Boston.
"Did you know Fannie Caros is working for a professor inter-
ested in research work? He's rather queer. 'Drags her all over
the country while he digs fossils. I was very surprised the other
day to see a song recently published under Mary Cressun's name.
Wonder whence came the inspiration."
just as I was deciding we should bid each other adieu, Doris
asked, "Are you going to New York this winter? Josephine
Milinkevich has a hotel at Lake Placid of which Peter Lyszezas
is manager. I'm sure you'd enjoy it." i
- As I wandered back to my hotel with grim determination to get
there this time, I thought about all I had just heard. However,
soon it all slipped my mind in the Worry of the play to be presented
that night. I must remember to drill Rosalyn that she was to Say

There is nothing more essential in life than faith, and in these
times of bewilderment, confusion, and uncertainty, nothing is so
indispensable, so necessary as faith in Democracy, faith in leader-
ship, and faith in our ability.
In the first place, what do we mean by faith? Faith is com-
monly conceived as being adherence to a set form of principles.
However, it is more than that. It is inspiration to action. Faith
in our form of government ought to inspire us to improve itg faith
in leadership, to choose our leaders wisely, and then place our trust
in them, and faith in our own ability, to incite us towards the at-
tainment of our purpose and ideals.
Today there is throughout the United States, as throughout
the world, a spirit of unrest and revolt. Many sections of our
country are poverty-stricken, and mental suffering is prevalent.
Since the inception of this unsettled state of affairs, men have begun
to lose faith in our form of government. Some are clamoring for
the establishment of a communistic state similar to the one in
Russia, others for a dictatorship parallel to the one in Italy.
Before we proceed further, what is democracy, our form of
government? As it was defined by Mazzini, the ltalian statesman,
"Democracy is the progress of all through all, under the leadership
of the wisest and best." lt is this form of government that is chal-
lenged. Have we lost sight of the fact that it is still in the experi-
mental stage? Non-democratic forms of government have been
tried down through the ages and proven a failure. Democracy in
the United States has been in existence for only a hundred and fifty
WWw-pmmwwww W--W '-wr'-1'--' - " "W mfnwwmww
82 TUSITBLA We -an
years. Under this form of government we have increased from a
handful of settlers to 120,000,000 inhabitants, into the greatest and
wealthiest nation in the world. Crises such as the present, of which
we have seen the worst. will always occur under any form of gov-
ernment if we fail to learn from experience."
It is necessary that we begin to think less along material lines
and more along spiritual. We must avoid wild speculation, and
come to have faith that the "almighty dollar" is not the supreme
good in life, but that we are here for a higher and nobler calling.
Experience has also proven to most people the necessity for
the adoption of social capitalism or modified socialism. This emer-
gency calls also for a higher degree of international co-operation,
such as the entrance of the United States into the World Court.
It demands further social insurance, and in the opinion of many,
public ownership of our natural resources. These policies, to suc-
ceed, must be executed with faith, and not with faint-hearted efforts
and skepticism. lf we pursue them, we will be able to prove to the
world that we need not the leadership of a Stalin or Mussolini, but
that we still can progress with ,faith in the ideals of Lincoln and
Wilson. Faith in democracy, which is still in the experimental
age, must be kept.
In order that these principles may be carried out, leadership
is necessary. During the past decades we have elected many men
to public office who lacked sincere convictions and courageous
principles. Many of our representatives lacked deep-rooted ideals,
and changed their convictions with the tide instead of going before
their constituents to prove their principles sound and true. Political
shrewdness instead of political courage has been dominating.
lt seems, however, that leadership such as that which made its
bow with the departure of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wil-
son is reappearing. Political apathy which increased during this
same period because we were little concerned with politics, being
absorbed in the enjoyment of our imaginary prosperity, is slowly
on the decline. As long as political indifference persists, nothing
constructive can be done. We, the people, must exercise our right
of suffrage, demanding men of action, men of leadership, men who
are looking for the welfare of the nation and not for re-election,
men who, in the words of Theodore Roosevelt, believe that "aggres-
sive iighting for the right is the noblest sport the world affords."
Vagueness, platitudes, and generalities in politics must cease, the
lackey statesman must go. T
Now, regardless of political affiliations, we must co-operate and
have faith in our present leadership, for we are all in the same
predicament, seeking the common goal of recovery and progress.
If we are to attain our aim, faith in leadership must be kept.
However, before we can make more effective our faith in
- ---nv--I . F. --rf-Y- -- -- ---- -- -- v.. --... -
democracy and leadership, we must first have faith in ourselves,
and in our ability to cope with arduous problems. It is upon the
individual that the success of democracy and true leadership de-
pends. The progress of a nation is largely measured by the faith
that its people have. Likewise, the progress of the individual de-
pends upon the amount of belief he has in himself.
We, the graduates of 1933, have been attending high school
during four years of adverse circumstances. Many of us, assum-
ing the lugubrious mood of this period, have passed these four years
in high school in faintheartedness and discouragement. We lacked
faith in our ability. We believed that a person must possess a large
amount of natural ability to succeed. Experience has shown, how-
ever, that although natural ability is valuable, it is largely industry
that breeds success-industry applied towards the attainment of a
definite purpose. When one reads the biography of men like
Edison, Coolidge, or of former Chief justice Holmes, he, sees that
they had one vital characteristic in common-industry. As George
Murray, the Canadian educator, stated: "Natural genius is but
the soil, which let alone, runs to weeds." Calvin Coolidge re-
marked further in his Autobiography: "The success which is made
in any walk of life is measured almost exactly by the amount of
hard work that is put into it." .
Although this crisis may have caused a lack of confidence, it
has proven advantageous in one important respect. There has been
an increase of serious-mindedness among the student-body. Never
in the history of the school has there been such serious considera-
tion of studies, and such obvious signs of ambition and desire for
success. lt has started many on the path of intelligent thinking and
the establishment of a purpose in life.
We are about to leave the portals of the Nashua High School,
some of us to matriculate at higher institutions, others to enter im-
mediately this world of fewer chances. Because this is the era of
keener competition, there is one thing that most of us will have to
do-and that is wait. Let us avoid faintheartedness and dis-
couragement. Let us live in faith and hope. Let the mistakes of
today be the lessons of tomorrow, and adversity the greatest of
teachers. Let us listen to the words of Benjamin Cardozo, who
remarks in his book, Law and Literature: "Our fates are in our
own hands. We make and remake our own selves. We are the
'captains of our souls.' Nature pants with the desire to make us
what we wish to be. The wish is the reality. What we think, that
Let us then, classmates, face the future with faith in democ-
racy, faith in leadership, and faith in our ability, let us keep be-
fore us our motto as a guide: "Fidvs Scrzlanda Est-Faith must

IQIEICPING FAITH WITH TQUUCATTON
With the country in the midst of the greatest financial panic
and commercial crisis through which it has ever passed, we find our
educational system in a particularly vulnerable position. Because
of the distribution of taxes which lays the burden of operating the
schools upon the local government, community leaders have first
slashed the budgets of the schools. Yet, it is just at such a time as
this that the service which the public school system has been render-
ing to America must continue absolutely undiminished. The youth
of America today should not have to pay for the sins and omissions
of its elders in the boom years after the war. We who are about
to graduate feel that our younger brothers and sisters ought to en-
joy the same advantages which we ourselves have had.
The crying' need of our generation, as our orator has said, is
faith-faith in the ultimate worth of civilization. The path of
man's struggle from pristine sub-savage ignorance and squalor has
been obstructed from time immemorial by difficulties and trials.
Yet the human spirit has always triumphed over adversity, it has
come through greater trials than the present economic depression.
Other countries of the world have continued their policy of educa-
tional expansion in the face of as great economic collapse as that
which faces America. ln a recent survey of the effects of the de-
pression upon schools in different nations, it has been found that
Canada, England, Germany, France, and Spain have maintained
their schools at the level of the 1-92O's, and have in many cases
broadened and enlarged their scope. ln America, however, educa-
tional services have been entirely abandoned in many rural com-
munitiesg city schools are functioning under heavy handicaps, with
a lack of proper supplies, and with over-worked and underpaid
The great underlying principle of all democracies-the rule "of
the people, by the people, for the people,"--presupposes and de-
mands an educated public with an awakened interest in all matters
which pertain to good-government. In a country of so many
diverse nationalities, with such far-flung boundaries as ours, free
education for the masses is our only hope for keeping up the intel-
lectual level of the nation. Washiiigtoii, with his far-seeing vision,
stated it thus in his lftzwzwll Address to the nation: "Promote
then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the
general diffusion of knowledge. ln proportion as the structure
of government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that
public opinion shall be enlightened." This is even more true today
when universal suffrage, the radio, and the newspaper have made
all thoughtful adults realize more fully the extent of their re-
sponsibilities as citizens.
Criticisms have been flung at education as the schools in
America provide it. H. I.. Mencken, in a recent article in his
American Mercury, has asserted that free education for all is a
failure. Mr. Mencken thinks that schools should go back to simply
teaching the "three R's.H He advocates a return to the day when
it cost only five dollars a year to teach a high school pupil, as con-
trasted with the modern average of about ninety dollars a year. He
mourns the passing of the little red schoolhouse whose teacher
boarded with each of her pupils' families in turn and received as
little as fifty cents a week for services. But one may well ask
whether those days were as idyllic as they seem in retrospect. An-
other critic, Upton Sinclair, has called our students practitioners in
the art of "intellectual goosesteppingf' Unlike Mr. Mencken, Mr.
Sinclair does not object to the cost of education, but to what he
considers the stereotyped product which is the result of our system.
Yet the principle of popular education as conceived by the founders
of the republic has proven its worth: in one-hundred and fifty years
it has fused the different races of the "great melting pot" into a
Everyone realizes that working hours are being shortened,
that the time is approaching when man will have more leisure than
ever before, when he will have to lind some way of using this leisure
time. Cicero, in speaking of the value of learning and culture, said
that these Hsecundas res ornantl'-that they "grace prosperity."
Only a nation who can spend its leisure wisely has within itself the
power to survive. 6
Let us now take up the subject of what the modern school
really is. The best school is that which, while admitting innova-
tions into its curriculum, realizes that the old scholarly traditions
have not lost their potencyg that the experience of past centuries
has proven the value of a sound cultural and classical tradition.
This admission of our belief in the traditional ideas of education
does not imply a blind devotion to the god of things as they are, or
have been. Rather, it brings to us the fuller realization of how
we may improve education. Ex-president Meiklejohn of the Uni-
versity of Chicago once declared that the object of true education
was that "A student should become acquainted with the funda-
mental motives and purposes and belief that underlie all human ex-
perience and bind it together. He must perceive the moral striv-
ings, the intellectual endeavors, the aesthetic experiences of his race."
The truly educated person should know the history of the world,
and study the factors which have built up our civilization.
All over the country, schools are being established according to
new educational theories. The modern school has improved upon
the old in that it offers its pupils greater opportunities for self-
expression, and imposes upon them fewer artificial restraints. Edu-
cators realize that learning is more apt to be 'an enjoyable process
if subjects are made interesting. It is, however, fallacious to as-
sume that education can be acquired painlessly. When hard work
and drudgery are entirely eliminated, the curriculum is bound to
lack substance and a certain disciplinary value. But ultimately it
is the personality, the magnetism, and the vision of the teacher
which makes or breaks any system of education. It is well to bear
in mind that the over-burdened teacher who carries a heavy
schedule of large classes cannot give his best service to his pupils.
The public then should realize that keeping faith with education
is one of the primary duties of citizens today. If we look deeply
into the problem, we see that this involves the vast question of
preserving our present civilization.
Mr. Tracy and Members of the Board of Education:

We fully realize that we can never hope to repay you, who have
given so much of yourselves to training us and to making us useful
members of society. Nevertheless, we take this occasion to tell you
that we hope that we shall prove worthy of the trust which you have
reposed in us.
You have done much to keep alive our faith in the value of
education. We hope that you will forget the difficulties which we
have caused you and remember only the pleasant side of our
