H. S. for a four-year cruise that would prepare them to sail the Sea of Life. During our Hrst year on the training ship, we were designated as "land- lubbers," because of our inability to withstand the rocking motions of the waves. How seasick we felt while sailing through the Gulf of Algebra and the Latin Channel, grasping the rails for support, and keeling from port to star- board! Some of us were even compelled to leave the good ship N. H. S. and seek the more serene behavior of land. To those of us who emerged successfully, June was a welcome month be- cause it marked the close of our first training period and the end of our appella- tion as 'ilandlubbersu by our elders. During our shore leave of two months, we rested and gathered new strength and energy for our second and more strenuous period. and September, 1933, found us all hale and hearty, embarking for our second training period on board the good vessel. At last we were beginning to be someone around the ship: it seemed as if our talents were beginning to be appreciated: we were given more difficult tasks to do, could freely mingle with the more experienced seamen, and had a few things in common with them. The sea still proved too rough for some of us. since again, in this period a small number of the crew disembarked at the nearest port and were never seen on the ship again. For the rest of us the common cry seemed to be "Sail on, sail on." for we sailed smoothly with the wind, and once more reached our home port in June, 1934, for our second shore leave of two months. September arrived quickly and so the day of sailing. How heartily we entered our third training period, for now we were not mere seafarers, but were to be called "Seamen, Junior Class." How we marvelled at this appellation! It was in this training period that we were given the right to choose our oflicers, and proceeding to do so, elected Frank Aponovich, Captain: Rose Cote, First Mate: Webster Whitney, Second Mate, and Dorothy Osgood, Boatswain. The sea was still rather rough during this period, but all of us, with the exception of a few, successfully withstood all effects of the waves. It was also during this period that our ofHcers chose for us a ring which would serve the purpose of identification from the rest of the crew. As it is the custom of the third class to have a dance and social gathering. we did not fail to attend this time-honoured custom. and the evening of the third of May, 1935, found us all strolling the decks in our best uniforms. 96 TUSITALA Toward -the end of this period we were told to elect officers for our fourth and last training period. John Williams was elected Captain: Lillian Blake. First Mate: Frank Aponovich, Second Mate: and Jennie Aponovich, Boatswain. By this time, June had arrived and we reached our home port and disem- barked for our third and last shore leave from the good ship. The su.mmer months went by quickly and September again found us on hand for embarkation upon our last training voyage. At last we were somebody on the ship-A'Seamen, Senior Class." Ohl How dignified we felt when walking about the decks, with all the lower class seamen about us seeming so inferior. In October came the call for volunteers to take part in the presentation of a play-"Remote Control," which was staged to help pay our graduation ex- penses. Many answered thc call and many were chosen. They rehearsed dili- gently for six long weeks, and early in December, the residents of our home port were told that the play would be presented on board ship, the evening of Fri- day the sixth. The ship was to make a special stop, and they were cordially invited to attend our presentation. The response was hearty, and the affair was a success. There seemed to be great excitement on deck one day. No-it was not an accident or a man overboard, it was just the Seamen, Senior Class, posing for their pictures. Later in the year, another small group of players was chosen to represent the ship at the New Hampshire State Play Tournament. This cast gave "The Wedding" and came home after winning a place for our ship in the annual New England competition. At about the same time, another group represented the school in the State Original Play Contest. These pupils appeared in 'AThe Delusion," a one-act play written by Ellen Sweeney, and again the cast came home with the first prize. On March 2, after due consideration, the Seamen, Senior Class, elected the scribes of the Tusitala, the ship's log book. James Norton was elected Chief Scribe and Bronca Mazeika, 'Helen VJillette, and Niles Jensen, Associate Scribes. At an assembly of the crew on April 6, 1936, Admiral Nesmith an- nounced the names o,f the eighty-two seamen who had attained highest ratings. Our First Mate, Lillian Blake, was named Valedictorian. On the following Wednesday, we assembled once more, and under the direction of Admiral Nesmith. nominated and elected an orator and four prophets-two boys and two girls. George Cachiona, one of the most am- bitious members of the crew, was chosen orator, and Albert Hardy, Helen Pialtos, Dorothy Osgood, and Paul Bertrand were chosen as prophets. From this time on every day seemed to bring forth new adventures. Some of the more ambitious members of the Seamen, Senior Class, tried for the Dodge Contest, a prize of S40 to be awarded at the completion of our course for the best paper on certain specified subjects. - Another group spoke extemporaneously at assembly one day, and the week following this same group Wrote a theme from a number of subjects chosen by our superior officers. For the remainder of the time between then and June, the sea was calm and we sailed to our home port under favorable conditions. Upon our arrival at port, we held our Senior Prom, which was followed the next night by the reading of the Class Will, Prophecies, and Class History. Friday evening, June l9, 1936, the greatest event of our lives to date-Graduation-took place, the night we were to be given our certificates as First Class Seamen, prepared to sail the Sea of Life.

During our freshman year we were obliged to attend school in the after- noon. Since this cut off any chance of working for a varsity letter in football, a freshman team was started. which practiced in the morning under the super- vision of Coach Degasis. This team picked up a poor record but succeeded in learning a few pointers which showed up in their play during their senior year on the varsity squad. The defeats in football were soon forgotten by the class of '36 because of a victory over the sophomores a few weeks later in basketball. Outside of these two teams, the Class of '36 did not feature prominently in any sports during its freshman year. Except for Baniesevich winning his letter for baseball, Lafiamme for hockey, and Whitney for basketball, the Class of l936 did not earn many var- sity letters during its sophomore year. although Oulton and Laliberte did show up well in track. Some of our classmates who did not win a varsity letter their sophomore year were playing on second and third teams. thus supplying the first teams with the practice which is needed to keep any first team in shape. As our junior year rolled along, we began to find our classmates popping up on first team positions in every sport. In football, "Toby" Graham and "Salty" Packor, ex-'36, were starring in the backiield, with "Charlie" Winn, ex-'36, and Frank Shubelka, ex-'36, in the line for the first team, while 'AJerry" Aponovich, "Billy" Pawlukiewicz, "Jimmie" Pappachristos, ex-'36, and A'Chap" Chaplick were alternating constantly with other first team players so as to earn their letters in football their junior year. A few of our other class- mates on the football squad included "Bo" Narkunas, A'Bunso" Baniesevich, Farwell, Wiresk, Bibeau, Zapenas. Haven, and D'Amour. On the basketball court, the class of '36 was represented by "Jerry" Apon- ovich, "Web" Whitney, and 'ASalty" Packor, ex-'36, who were awarded let- ters their junior year at the completion of a mediocre season. During the spring, A'Tom" Leonard, "Pete" Gaidis, and A'Paul" Travers featured for the golf team, which established a fine record. "Bunso" Baniese- vich and "Toby" Graham won their letters in baseball, as did "Bob" Moher, "Art" D'Amour, "Bo" Narkunas, and "Chet" Lapeza for track. TUSITALA 99 The boys' tennis team showed that it was made of championship calibre, because it pushed aside all high school opposition for an undefeated record. Players from the Class of '36' on the tennis team were: Lucien Laliberte, who also directed the team, George Melendy, Irving Wolfe, "Red" 1Vlc1ntosh, and "Teddy" Vassias. The first two players named above won their letters in this sport. The Class of '36 also came through in the girls' tennis team during the spring of '35 with Anne Aponovich, Jennie Aponovich, Anne Satkowski, and Helen Willette on the team. The former three won their letters. To show the great part that the Class of 1936 took in sports its senior year, one merely has to glance over the list of senior lettermen for football and basketball for 1935-36. Out of the twenty-four lettermen in football eighteen were seniors. Out of the ten lettermen in basketball seven were seniors. The greatest victory that Nashua's eleven achieved was its surprising win over a highly-touted Lowell team at Nashua during the middle of the football season. Nashua's trick triple pass provided the upset over Lowell. The final score of that memorable game was 9-6. Captain "Toby" Graham took an ever-active part in the backfield, along with "Jerry" Aponovich, "Bob" Moher, Lionel Bibeau, and Arthur D'Amour. The line was filled in alternatingly with Prank Shubelka, ex-'36, Frank Wiresk, William Haven, "Ted" Floras, Ellsworth Farwell, 'iBilly" Pawlukewicz, Julius Chaplick, Charles Winn. James Pappachristos, and Joseph Chainski. Their successful record for the season was six wins and three losses. Peter Swabowich won his letter as man- ager of the team. During the early part of the winter of 1935-36, captain "Jerry" Apono- vich, "Web" Whitney, "Bunso" Baniesevich, "Bo" Narkunas, "Dick" Cote. Stanley Kosman, and Frank Wiresk started their last season of basketball for Nashua High. Their final record, which was five wins and nine losses, in- cluded three Victories over Manchester, N. H., teams, thus enabling them to re- ceive a bid to the state tournament in class A for the first time in three years. The team lost its first game to Claremont, who later was runner up to Berlin. the champion. The only senior lettermen for cross-country were John Mills and George Britton. who participated in three matches during the fall of 1935. ' At the present writing, baseball, tennis, track, and golf are yet to be played, but the outlook is bright. The baseball team has "Toby" Graham and "Bunso" Baniesevich returning: the track team has captain i'Chet" Lapeza, "Bob" Mo- her, D'Amour, and Narkunas: the golf team, 'iTom" Leonard, "Paul" Trav- ers, and Captain "Pete" Gaidis: the boys' tennis team, Captain Lucien La- liberte, George Melendy, lrving Wolfe, and "Red" Mclntoshz the girls' tennis team, Captain Anne Aponovich, Jennie Aponovich, Anne Satkowski, and Helen Willette. Just to show more bright colors of the Class of 1936, Lafazani will become manager of the baseball team this spring, with Economopoulos becom- ing the manager of the track team. Outside of the baseball team, the seniors will be holding down almost all the positions this spring because of their pre- vious knowledge of the sports: so it looks now like the completion of a suc- cessful career for the 1936 class in the line of sports, and there will be many va- cant positions next year as a result of our graduation in June. WEBSTER WHITNEY. TUSITALA TUSITAIA 102 TUSITALA Brumattm SENIOR PLAY Darkness! A shot! A masculine voice shouts for the lights! The lights suddenly flare up, revealing a group of men gathered about a desk where slumps the body of a man. What is all this excitement, you ask? How could such things happen in dear old Nashua High? Have you forgotten? It is the night of December 6, I936--the night of the Senior Play of the Class of 1936. The play is the thrilling Remote Control, and the audience is listening and watching with bated breath, The setting of Remote Control is in the broadcasting studio of WPH, the Potter House in Chicago. The announcer of WPH, and our hero, is Walter Brokenchild, played by Robert Willens. His able secretary, and also the girl he loves, is Helen Wright, played by Marie Haug. The comedy of the play is supplied by Ralph Shugart. Control Engineer, played by Irving Wolfe, and by the high-pressure publicity man, Charlie Ciolden, played by John Williams. And a grand performance is handed in by Sergeant Devine, the detective who attempts to solve, in his blundering way, the mysterious murder in the studio. Sergeant Devine is ably played by Martin Hansberry. Moran, the house de- tective, is played by Niles Jensen. Of course, no play of this kind would be complete without a villain or two, and Remote Control supplies not one or two, but six. These six are members of the notorious "Ghost Gang," Dr. A. P. Workman, the well-known spiritualist, played by Alfred Robichaudl Bert Rupert, the advertising agent, played by Paul Burns: and the gunmen, Peter, Joe. Ed, and Jack, played respectively by Winston Blake, Franklin Newman. Harry Williams, and George Dooley. W. L. Oakwood, the owner of the Potter House, is played by Richard Moran. Some more refreshing comedy is supplied by Professor Murrey, Physical Culture expert, played by Earl Watts. His accompanist at the piano is Anna Bancroft. But I must not forget the bevy of beautiful girls, members of the Junior League. who come to sing over the radio, and are insultingly robbed of their jewels. They are Betty Bundy, Marie Nash, Ellen Sweeney, Arlene Lougee, Lillian Blake, Claire Cote, Camille Corriveau, and Helen Doyle. Music for the play is supplied by Larry Punk and his Serenaders, who are really Stephen Trubacz. Robert Spence, Arnold Sharpe, Leo Nusenoff, Ray- mond Gagnon, Albert Ciolden, and Leonard Labine Cl937j. Also Dorothy Doyle, played by Louise Goodale, does an unusual tap dance on her toes. TUSITALA 10? The two policemen under Sergeant Devine are Charles Elbling and Diony- sius Economopoulos. Rehearsal assistants were Thelma Leith and Kiki Cour- tis, and the play, of course, was under the able supervision of Miss Elizabeth Cornell, A large and grand cast, music, beautiful girls, adventure, thrills-what more could any audience desire, and the curtain falls on the last act of Remote Conlrol, with a burst of thunderous applause from the audience, TTHELMA LEITH. THE NEW ENGLAND FESTIVAL PLAY 'AA Wedding," a comedy by James Kirkpatrick, was selected for our entry in the State Drama Contest to be held April ll in Keene. The cast was chosen, rehearsals started, and the play was onl The day finally arrived for the competition at Keene, and Nashua returned home victorious. This vic- tory gave us the opportunity of participating in the New England Drama Day Festival in which each state of New England entered two one-act plays. The play related the experience of a nerved-up bridegroom who lost his collar-button on his wedding day, who was tortured by a know-it-all best man, a nonchalant usher, a weeping mother, a bossy aunt, and an angry father-in- law. Nevertheless. the bride remained calm and composed throughout the long delay, although a battle was finally waged between her and her hus- band-to-be when she entered his room unannounced, and heard him say that he wasn't "going to get married." The New England Eestival took place on May 22 and 23 in Manchester, and although Nashua did not top for honors, nevertheless the experience, the knowledge, and the friends which the cast gained rendered it a total success. The cast of the play was as follows: Robert Tisdale, the groom, John Williams: Alice Grayson, the bride, Lillian Blake: Archie, the best man. Wins- ton Blake: Ted, the usher, Niles Jensen: Julia Grayson, the aunt, Arlene Lougee: Mr. Grayson, the bride's father, Alfred Robichaud: Mrs. Tisdale, the groom's mother, Helen Doyle. HELEN DOYLE. THE DELUSION Another outstanding play of the year was the New Hampshire State orig- inal play contest winner, UThe Delusion," Written by Ellen Sweeney. Hav- ing won the local contest, it was presented in assembly on March Z4 for the iirst time. Those who took part in it were Claire Cote, Jeanne Gautier, Betty Bundy, Paul Bertrand, Robert Willens, and Camille Corriveau. 104 TUSITALA Later it was chosen by the state judges as one of the four best in the state. On May 1, in Laconia, it was awarded first place by the unanimous vote of the judges as the most original and best-presented one-act play. The play is a modern comedy. It deals with high school seniors who are very ambitious to go to a college ball: but after their plans and preparations are made, they discover that another girl, shy and reserved in their opinion, has spoiled their chances of going by receiving the coveted invitation herself. This was Ellen Sweeney's first attempt at writing. It certainly was a successful one, and it won a great honor for herself and the school. Perhaps it's the beginning of a writing career for her. If she does continue, we know she'll do her best. CAMILLE CORRIVEAU. ftllaw Iinem Sail Onward! On this day of commencement, gravely we stand With questioning faces, diplomas in hand, A sign of achievement of years we've been through, Like ships rightly rigged whose sailing is due, Prepared to withstand the wild charge of the storm, Ready to combat with what lies beyond, So we, starting out, a gallant flotilla, Are ready to meet our Charybdis and Scylla! We've been strengthened and hardened for what is to come, By four happy years which seemed hardly one. In knowledge, our ships have strong ribs of steel: Our helm's perseverance: faith is the keel: Our beams, wrought from friendship, can be felled by no force: Our map's common sense for charting our course. Over Neptune's broad kingdom, 36's staunch fleet Will sail to a land at the end of the deep, Where peace, joy, contentment, will be there to greet The crews which have sailed the invincible fleet.

FOURTH: To Miss Coffey, we leave a good, honest sophomore who won't eat her lunch on the way up from the lunch counter. FIFTH: To Miss Campbell, we bequeath a neon sign. "Do not disturb. Dictation going on."

SIXTH: To Mrs. Nesmith, we leave the permission to buy all the season's latest song hits including "The Music Goes Round and Round," to be used on the Ediphone: so if the o key is struck accidentally it will only be part of the song.

EIGHTH: To Miss Brown, we bequeath an automatic turnstile which will not permit the departure of her pupils until the bell has rung. NINTH: To ease the strain on Miss Cramer's lungs in her home-room, we leave the cow bell which was present at several football games. TENTH: To Miss Cornell, we bequeath a new bouquet of artificial flowers to replace the ones that have withered during their five years of use in plays. ELEVENTH: To Mr. Canfield, we leave a Scotch bagpipe to help him get rid of the extra wind he has left after the sixth period. TWELFTH: To Miss Barnes, we leave the privilege of conducting a year- ly trip to Rome to visit old ruins. with the reservation that she warn her pupils not to walk away with the Colosseum as a souvenir. THIRTEENTH: To Miss McC1lynn, we leave a pot of 'fSurestick" glue, enough to last for many a "sitting" to keep her future pupils in the places where they belong. 106 TUSITALA FOURTEENTH: To Miss Doe, we bequeath a stratosphere balloon to ex- plore the higher regions of the library. FIPTEENTH: To Mr. Kempton, we leave full permission to copyright the statement, "That is right," under United States and foreign copyright laws. SIXTEENTH: To Mr. White, we leave more students who know that Wheeling, Virginia, is not a hard job: and also a pack of bloodhounds to trace his lost cross-country men. SEVENTEENTI-I: We leave to Mr. Keefe a sinking fund, whereby making it possible for him to invest each morning in a package of gum, so that when his classes come to school chewing, he will not feel slighted, EIGHTEENTH: To Mr. Hatch, we bequeath a desk covered with an air cushion to be used exclusively for resting. NINETEENTH: To Mr. Morley, we bequeath a section of those "wide open spaces" where he can run loose catching butterflies for his laboratory ex- periments. TWENTIETH: To Miss Jacques, we leave a bottle of hair tonic to stop the falling hairs from the paint brushes. TWENTY-FIRST: To Mr. Kennedy, we leave a fully-equipped laboratory so he will not have to travel from room to room in search of materials finding them eventually when the class period is over. TWENTY-SECOND: To Mr. Paquette, we leave a carton of unbreakable violin strings so that they won't snap in the midst of his soulful rendition of Mendelssohn's "Spring Song." TWENTY-THIRD: To Miss Burmeister, we leave the permission to occupy the warmest classroom in the new school so that she may teach her pupils "How to Avoid Getting a Cold" without freezing in the process of education. TWENTY-FOURTH: To Mr. Cioddard, we leave a good-looking, blonde nurse to take care of all the cuts and bruises which next year's classes will cer- tainly acquire. ,TWENTY-FIFTH: To Mr. Wilson, we bequeath a class that will appre- ciate his efforts to unearth another Lily Pons or Nelson Eddy, and the hope that he discovers the "Lost Chord." TWENTY-SIXTH: To Coach Chesnulevich, we bequeath a fur-lined over- coat so that he may sit comfortably at the football games. TWENTY-SEVENTH: To "Danny," our favorite janitor, we leave all the papers which will be found in waste baskets with the permission to save them in the hope that some day we shall have earned enough fame to make our signa- tures valuable. TWENTY-EIC-HTH: To the Class of l937, we leave the refinished desk tops in the senior home-rooms. We hope you will be very careful of them for they are re--markable. TWENTY-NINTH: To the Class of 1938, we leave the permission to make as much noise in assembly as we did-if they can. TI-IIRTIETH: To the Class of 1939, we leave the grim determination to last three years more. Drawn on this, the seventeenth day of June, nineteen hundred and thirty- six, according to the wishes of the class. THE CLASS OF 1936. WITNESSESZ Haile Selassie, I Shirley Temple, King Kong.

DOROTHY OSGOOD. TUSITALA 109 PART II Nineteen hundred and forty-five and I find myself in Nashua scouting for talent for my amateur radio hour. While I was driving up the seven-lane highway to Nashua. my attention was drawn to a large sign on the side of the road: F. Dee and D. Dee-Manufacturers of Fine Hair-Growing Tonic- Guaranteed to Grow Hair on a Billiard Ball. The factory was a little dis- tance off the highway, and I drove up. I approached a door labeled Ofiice and entered. Here I found Francis and Daniel Dee sitting behind desks much too large for them. Francis was smoking a five-cent cigar, judging from the aroma. They recognized me immediately, even though I couldn't see my feet any more. "Hi, Paul," said the boys. "Sit down, old friend, and give your body a rest. We haven't seen you in a dog's age." "Hello, boys. How are things going?" "Great for us. We've got half the city working for us. Robert Gilmore helped discover oil in Hudson and we're making hair-grower from it. Albert Hardy is our Hudson representative and he has made plenty of dough. He's got a Rolls Royce now. Charlie Elbling is our foreign representative. Patricia Sullivan and Pearl Trudeau are our stenographers. Edward Parzych is our employment man. If you want a job, see Eddie. Among your old friends who also work for us are Lionel Poirier and Chester Sargent. Frank Wiresk is one of our very best truck drivers. Stanley Petrowski, the mad chemist, makes up our formulas. What are you doing for a living, Paul?" "Oh, I'm an amateur radio hour promoter for the Goose and Gander Coffee Company. I'm out here looking for some home-town talent." "Well, if I were you," said Frank, "I would go up to see Arlene Lougee. She runs the Amateur Theatre of Nashua in league with Ellen Sweeney. The girls could help you a lot." After getting this information, I said goodbye to the boys and continued into Nashua. I noticed Martin Hansberry and James Roche in a police car as I went by Hollis Street. I parked the car on Main Street and looked around for Arlene Lougee's Theatre. As I passed by the Elite Dress Shop, I noticed it was being run by Beatrice Charron and Mary Tong. I finally found the theatre and went in. I asked the cashier where the manager's office was, and you could have knocked me for a row of dead cats when I found that the cashier was Melvina Marchenonis. She showed me a letter from Lucien La- liberte, who was in New York selling ice cream on Coney Island. Lucien re- ported that Leo Laflamme and Alfred Robichaud were selling hot dogs in a stand beside him. Robert Willens was a barker for William Pawlukiewicz's sideshow. Clarence McIntosh and Julius Chaplick were life guards there un- til they both saved a life and then got married. Melvina directed me to the manager's oflice, where I was ushered in by Lionel Bibeau, head usher of the place. Ellen Sweeney, the only one there, was certainly surprised to see me. When I explained my mission she said she could help me. "Leo Nusenoff has a great band," she said, "Harry Williams, Paul Anctil, James Pinette, Paul Leaver, Gerard Poirier, and Robert Tatarczuk play for him. Campbell Wall croons for them, and Andrea Dane is their torch- song singer." "Have you any good comedians in the city, Ellen?" "Oh yes! Norman Ledoux and Webster Whitney are the rage about town. They are simply, bodaciously funny. For dancers you could get Rose Cote and Louise Goodale. We have some good imitators in the town, too. Helen Doyle and Nancy Proctor have won great recognition for their excellent imitations. The duet composed of Irving Wolf and Pauline Edelstein can Sing opera in anything from C minor to B flat." l 10 TUSITALA "Well, you seem to have quite a bit of talent for me, Ellen. Now you can tell me about some of our old schoolmates." "Sure thing, Paul. Tom Leonard, Peter Gaidis, and John Stylianos have all become great golfers. They are on this year's United States Olympic Team. Mary Shea, Helen Supple, and Rita Reynolds started a tea room with William Makarawicz as chief cook and bottle washer. The Woolworth store has secured Margaret Reed as chief custodian of nickels and dimes. Germaine Theroux, Frances Lavoie, Virginia Larocque, and Ruth Keene are her able assistants. Nashua's radio station, WLZW, is run by Louis Karosas, Ells- worth Farwell, and Roy Landry. Lena Karstok and Sophie Stanepedos take care of the station's telephone calls. What do you know of some of our class- mates." "A little, Ellen," I said. "Norman Levesque wrote me that he married a Pelham girl, and was the proud dad of live children. He said that Loretta Lampron, Anna Spellman, and Augusta Neville were trained nurses now. Estelle St. Onge and Theresa Therriault have become big business women in New York. The famous P. P. 'Ed R. Shoe Stores are operated by Philip La- flamme, Paul Langlois, and Raymond Borghi, with Ernestine Nadreau and Pauline Sloan supervising the women's shoe styles. The letter I got last week from Rita Soucy said that in the six-day bicycle race in Chicago, she saw Norman McAfee, Alphonse Zapenas, George Felton and Stanley Narkunas. Those boys always did have dizzy ambitions. She also said that Stanley Motylewski and Maurice Boulanger had a grudge fight in Chicago for the favor of Jeanne Vien. These people are all that I have heard about. I have an en- gagement in Boston, Ellen, so I guess I'll run along. Try to get that talent for me, won't you? Goodbye, and good luck." "Goodbye," said Ellen as she closed the office door. I made my way back to my car and set out for Boston, feeling quite pleased with my visit to the old home town. PAUL BERTRAND. PART III It was a cool morning in September, 1946, when I went joyfully up the steps of the new Nashua High School, humming a tune under my breath, for I had just set out on my job as a scout for talent for Major Bertrand's Amateur Hour. While I was scouting I thought that it might be interesting to find out what had become of some of my classmates, and see if I could find some talent there. I went to the high school office and was amazed to see Robert Charron at the principal's desk, but was soon enlightened when he informed me that he held the honored position of principal. Robert had installed a new system in the high school whereby one could take down a certain numbered receiver and could listen in on what the teacher in the corresponding room was saying. This eliminated much fooling and provided smarter pupils. I asked for a list of the faculty, and as I glanced at it, I saw these names at once: Jennie R. Aponovich, Stenography: Winnifred Mason, Economics: Bessie Katsialicas, Latin: Mary Anthoulis, Swimming Instructor: Alaftharios Floras, Basketball Coach: and Philip Ackley, Physical Instructor. We might be able to use Phil as an exercise director on our program. These names reminded me of some of my classmates I had met while I was traveling in foreign countries on a pleasure trip. In Paris I had encoun- tered Frank Aponovich and James Clifford, famous clothes designers for women, and Evangeline George, their model. Carmelle Belanger was studying music at Naples and could now play any kind of musical instrument. George Cach- iona was United States ambassador to England. TUSITALA l 1 l While I was in Germany, I met John Lafazanis and Dionisius Economo- poulos, who had become German interpreters of Herr Hitler's speeches for the American people. I was not at all surprised. because I remembered how they used to like German in high school. Leo Perrault was a missionary in China trying to convert the heathen. Surprising of Leo! The airplane in which I had crossed the Atlantic was piloted by Mary Fitzpatrick, and Saleva Maroon was the air hostess. She had rushed to my rescue many times when I was not feeling so well. Upon leaving the high school I decided the next place to go to was the City Hall to see what information I could get there. On my way I was hailed by a fair young lady, who, on approaching nearer, turned out to be none other than Edith Magee. She was wheeling a carriage with six infants, and seeing my questioning look, she informed me that she was a nurse and was taking care of the famous Dionne sextuplets. "Haven't you heard of them?" she inquired. i'They are the babies of Cecile Dionne, and are known by her maiden name because of the similarity of the name to that of the famous quintuplets of our day. Her husband died a few weeks after the birth of the babies. I guess the shock was too much for him." After laughing over this, I asked whether she could give me any other news about our classmates. "Well," she said, "Sophie Lewkovicz surprised everybody by founding an orphanage with Helena Lapinski as her head nurse. She said that she couldn't bear to see the homeless children running around the streets. Anne Aponovich was awarded the United States Tennis Championship, and Angeline Constan- tino won a nonsense-talking contest last week, She may turn out to be an- other Gracie Allen." "How is the town of Hudson getting along?" I asked. "Oh, Hudson has grown! Paul Bouchard holds the position of Mayor, and Lulu Costes is his private secretary. Well, I must be going now, as the babies are beginning to get restless. Goodbye!" I resumed my walk, but I had no sooner gone a few steps than a hand was laid on my shoulder, and on turning I looked straight into the eyes of Katherine Kiratsos, "Why, Katherine, what's the idea of the costume? Are you going to a masquerade?" "Don't be silly! This is my uniform. I am the present police com- missioner of the city of Nashua. Erma Twiss and Marion Peters are two of the women members of the police force." ' "Good for you! But what has become of our good friend Kiki Courtis?" "Oh, Kiki's a tall, stately, young lady now. She wrote the book How to Gain an Inch a Week, and many people are now taking her advice." "Have you any information to give me about our old classmates?" "Theodore Christos is chief control engineer of the XYZ broadcasting station, situated above the North Common, and Shirley Clement is a famous blues singer over that station. Maurice Newman is the owner of the Newman Chewing Gum Company. Arthur Arsenault is the president and George Britton business manager. Whenever there is an overproduction of stock and sales are not high, they consume most of the stock on hand themselves to make room for the fresh product. Bronca Mazeika now has a permanent job as stenographer at the Red Cross, and she will receive a pension as soon as she retires. Rena Katsiaficas now has the position she most longed for. She is a kindergarten teacher. Herbert Bilbow is a marvelous baritone appearing in Grand Opera, and Cecil Boucher is a great comic actress." "What about Florence Christy?" I asked. ' "Oh, Florence is now head manager of Woolworth's and Paul Berube is her chauffeur. By the way, did you know that Catherine Murphy and l IZ TUSITALA George Coutsonikas are co-owners of a circus? Lorraine Dugas and Ruth Mc- Nulty are two of their best pony riders. Well, I must go now. I'll see you later." I set off again, elated at the information I had received already. My at- tention was drawn to some brightly colored posters, one of which had the heading "First Woman Candidate for President." I advanced nearer and saw that Dorothy Osgood was running for election against Chester Lapeza, the pres- ent President, I also found that Ruth Devereaux was campaign manager for Dorothy, and the posters had been designed by Tillie Finkle. I knew that Chester was President, but I could not account for Dorothy's sudden interest in politics. Some of the members of President Lapeza's Cabi- net were: Bernard Kameniecki, Secretary of State: Madeline E. Upham, Secre- tary of War: Helen B. Willette, Secretary of Navy: and William R. Hazeltine, Secretary of Labor. I finally arrived at the City Hall, and as I glanced at the windows, the names on three of them seemed familiar. They were: Superintendent of Schools, Paul Blood: City Clerk, Otis D. Barr: and Justice of the Peace, Louise M. Parkinson. I went to the City Clerk's office and, after many greetings and explana- tions, he gave me a list of names that he thought I should know. Elizabeth Bradley, single, telephone operator: Phyllis A. Sudsbury, single, governess: Louise Reynolds, nun: Ruth Peters, married to a tailor from Paris. I picked up a newspaper, as Otis was called away for a moment, and looked at the advertisements. On one page I found 'ARay's Cafe, Most Ex- clusive Restaurant in New England, Proprietor, Rachel Michaud: Chef, Stan- ley Banusevich: head waiter, Spiros Stamelosf' Turning the page I saw "Jennie's Beauty Salon, Proprietor, Jennie E. Pawlukiewiczu and further down "Leah's Jewelry Store, Owned by Leah Bechard." I put the paper aside as Otis came to me with some more news. "I forgot to tell you about Loretta Bean. She's married to a wealthy doctor, but for a while she had the man guessing because she kept him waiting at the altar a few minutes before she appeared. Our post office is doing a pretty good business with stamps, and I'm quite sure the answer is the two new clerks at the stamp windows, Jennie Karczewski and Dorothy Stapanon. That ac- counts for the long line of males there every day. Stephanie Chouramanis is a handwriting expert there and addresses envelopes in any kind of handwriting desired at a very moderate price. Albert Bechard is a postman who delivers his letters on roller skates. That paper that you were just reading is called The Weekly Times and is printed once a week by Florence Shyska. The reporters, Sophie Stanulis and Effie Winn, take the rest of the week to collect news and giogsip for the paper. Sophia Rotkiewicz is the fastest typist they have in the o ce. Suddenly a crash and the shouts of many people were heard outside. We rushed out, and as we did so we heard the siren of the ambulance rushing to the rescue. We were informed that the city window washer, Stanley Kosman, had fallen while cleaning the Windows of the second floor. Otis told me that, be- cause of the many times this had happened, he thought it was intentional, and was done because Stanley wanted the attention of Stella Ledoux, the ambulance driver, and Agnes Kozlowski, the attendant nurse. No sooner than this excitement was over, the fire alarm blew and the people hastened away. Someone shouted, "Bea's Night Club," and rushed off. "Oh, it's at Beatrice Baker's night club," said Otis. Bettie Cook is mis- tress of ceremonies, Beatrice Mirsky the hat-check girl, and Aristide Vassias is leader of the orchestra there. The fire will be out in no time, though, as we have a very eliicient force under the management of Fire Chief Grace M. Wid- TUSITALA 1 13 ener. Eva Kozaks drives the fire truck, and Anne Satkowski and Madeline Coutsonikas are two efficient firewomenf' "Well, thank you very much for your information, Otis, but I really must be getting along now. I'll see you again some other time. Goodbye." Feeling that I had done a good day's work, I put on my adjustable wings, designed by Lucille Raymond and Kenneth Rollins, and flew over to the studio to report my findings for the day, feeling sure that future programs should not lack material from among our versatile classmates. HELEN PIALTos. ' PART IV "Pardon me, sir, could I use your telephone? I've got a flat tire and no tools to change it with. Say, aren't you Cyprus Paskevich?" "Sure. What are you doing way out here in the country?" "I'm a scout for Major Bertrand's amateur hour. You remember Paul Bertrand? Thought I'd look up some of our old classmates: real talent there. I'm looking for good old Nashua." "Turn around and go back about two miles. Since William Fuller dis- covered oil over in Hudson, Nashua has almost gone out of existence. I've got some tools: I'll help you with your car." I "So, after all your trig. and solid geometry, you decided to be just a plain dirt-farmer? Say, that field of corn over there is the levelest I've ever seen. "That's the old airport. I'm using the hangar as a barn." "Have they finished the new high school? I remember back in 1936 that they expected to move in within a couple of years." "Nope, still using the old one. Ought t'be finished soon. though. Fred Goodwin, the Democrat running for Senator, is going to introduce a bill hav- ing all public schools built by the Government. He's running against Ray- mond Gagnon and Victor Webster, the anarchist and communist candidates. A Republican, Galen LaRose, is in there now. He's been trying to do away with the Supreme Court. Paul Burns from Tammany Hall has been supporting him. Ruth Sherburne and Marjorie French teach English at the old high school. Jaqueline Trudel teaches history." "What's happened to Robert Sudsbury and Albert Mulhern?" "Both plumbers. Norman Dube owns a taxicab company. Lloyd Gra- ham, John Belowski, Robert Merrill, and Anthony Wolkowski drive for him." "What are they doing to the Merrimac?" "That's the new PDQ project. George Dooley did all the surveying. Demetrios P. Stergion and Company got the contract. Earl McCutcheon. Donald Spalding, and Julius Ramaika do pick and shovel work. Felix Gur- ska runs a steam shovel." "What's Forrest Jasper's occupation?" "Right now he's in jail for speeding. Charles Farmer, chief of police in Hudson, caught him going 27.3 miles per hour. The speed limit's 25, you know. We have a famous force over here. John Miskinis is a sergeant: Theo- dore .lones is a lieutenant: Herlock Sholmes, alias Israel Caron, is our famous detective whc tracked down the man who took an apple from Joseph Chain- ski's fruit cart. We have one other fellow in jail. Albert Anctil, Captain of the National Guards, caught Paul Hamel carrying a piano from the inundated area. He's a piano mover by trade. Claims this One was his own." l 14 TUSITALA "It seems to me that there were a lot of girls in our class. What's be- come of them?" "Most of them were taken for better or worse by some of the local boys: others are working as secretaries and stenographers. Betty Rothenberg mar- ried a wealthy fellow from New York. Wanda Shepard married a young chap who owns a greenhouse. Laura Gagnon is keeping house for a farmer, Alfred Laliberte. Rita Moriarty married a short, fat, bald-headed man. I think Sylvia Porter is down in Miami trying to snare a duke. She inherited a fortune quite recently. Josie Putis, Gertrude McCoy, and Lillian Guyette work as stenographers in Lester Fulling's insurance office. Mary Harwood is ? clerk in Robert Shepard's radio shop. What talent have you discovered so ar. "Oh, I've had pretty good luck. You've heard AThe Mad Musician' on the Loosit Ladies' Lingerie program? He plays jazz music on a piano. Be- lieve it or not, that's Stephen Trubacz. I discovered that boy! Then there's the 'Maestro' on the Killmore Liquor Stores program: Arnold Sharpe can cer- tainly play that violin. I looked up Paul Travers. Thought he'd make a good comedian. Reckon I was bodaciously mistaken. He's one of these hen- pecked husbands. He has nine kids, and his mother-in-law lives with him. He's teaching chemistry over at the high school now. The University of Co- penhagen gave him a D.Sc. degree for isolating that new element, auhsan. "Robert Spence imitates a man fighting with his wife, cat and dog fights. and so on, over the radio. Then I found the Blues Chorus, consisting of Genevieve Kursewicz, Elsie Duclos, Germaine Dufour, and Blanche Fortier, heard over WZB. Helen Deres and Marion Delorey are hitch-hiking to Holly- wood. Wanda Ligarski's songs are going over big. While you're fixing that tire, I reckon I'll turn on the radio and listen to the news. Here's station WHO.

"Doesn't sound very interesting: I think I'll read this paper that I got at James Lampropulos's peanut stand. The Hudson Telegraph. Hmmm . . . I see that James Norton is the circulation manager. Cleo Gagnon and Wil- liam Makarawicz are the staff reporters covering Nashua. What's this? There's to be an art exhibition at the Auditorium? First showing of Violet Keniston's super-realistic paintings! Say. those are the pictures that you can hang up- side-down or at any angle, aren't they?" "I've got some tickets to that: they're 75c a couple." "A couple? Whom could I take to that?" "There are some mighty nice nurses at the hospital, Elaine Merrill, Lor- raine Tremblay, Margaret Duclos, Lillian Dionne .... " "Nix! I'm a married man.

Whatever happened to John Barry?" "Oh, he disappeared a few years ago with a young heiress. You'd better get some air in that tire. Charles Boska's garage is half a mile down the road. Do you remember Jeanne Gautier? I haven't seen her for years." "Hmmm .... the name sounds familiar. Oh yes, I married the girl! Well, I reckon l'll be leaving these woods. So long." After writing all the news back to my boss, Major Bertrand, I went to an asylum to rest for a few days. Whom should I meet there but my old classmate, Raymond Reynolds, in the observation ward! It was all a mis- take, though, for he had actually discovered how to trisect an angle. PERCIVAL IVIONTAGUE. CAlbert I-Iardyj t o tgirl ' Q5 .- l 16 TUSITALA Class Ofation Fortitudo, Spes, Fides Courage, Hope and Faith A generation or two ago there were two courses open to a high school graduate. He could go to the city or go out West. Today there are so many kinds of employment that a graduate must study every phase of industry. The city has become over-crowded, and the West is no longer an undeveloped tract of land in which any adventurer can find a place. People must find an outlet for all this youth that is graduat- ing in this era. However, the easiest solution seems to send them back to the rural sections of our nation. At this moment we are in a decade that is a labyrinth of industrial and educational upheav- als. Our problem is how to meet these dilem- mas that will confront us as soon as we leave this haven from the cares and troubles of the world. We must face the future with courage, hope, and faith in ourselves and our abilities. We are in the dying stage of that old bogey, the Depression. The De- pression has largely disappeared from the nation-at-large, yet relief for us will not be marked for quite a few years. It will be our problem to find our way out of this situation. Society has reached the highest degree of civilization that mankind has ever known. We must solve our problems by the unlim- ited use of the brains, intelligence, and ambition which society has bred in us. It may seem a trifle unfair and too hard on us to face the future with such a great burden, but this crisis will bring out the best in us, and we will profit by these experiences. How many of us have ever discussed the vital problems of life with our parents? Very few, I am sure. When we leave this hall to go on our dif- ferent paths of accomplishment, we graduates would do well to have a frank discussion with our parents on the subject of our future. We will find that many little things that seem inconsequential to our inexperienced souls are con- stant sources of worry to our fathers and mothers. We graduates are prey to discouragement, but we should have at least a clear conception of the sorrows and cares that will beset us at every turn of the road. In gaining this, our parents can help us. Life, on the average, is a series of "ups," then a series of "downs" Even in the deepest mire of bitter despair, we must not lose courage. Man is a timid animal. The minute things go against him, doubts and fears assail from every side. The true mettle of a person's character is shown under the test of adversity. None of us has been tested thus far, but we must prepare ourselves for the time when it shall come. Carl Sandburg, the great American realist, touches the right chord in his poem, "Upstream." The strong men keep coming on. They go down shot, hanged, sick, broken. TUSITALA 1 17 They live on fighting, singing, lucky as plungers. The strong mothers pulling them on . . . The strong mothers pulling them from a dark sea, a great prairie, a long mountain. Call hallelujah, call amen, call deep thanks. The strong men keep coming on. Hope and Faith. What profound depths these little words can plumb! Hope, the staff of spiritual and physical life: Faith in oneself, the guiding light of genius. For man would be back in the prehistoric age if he lacked hope and faith. Think of what hope the pioneers had! These ignorant, inexperi- enced men, with fire and courage in their souls, pushed on into the untrodden West and tamed a country that was teeming with war-like Indians. Fighting against the Indians, raising their children to be good Christians, and trying to wrest a living from an unmastered soil: it is a heritage of hope, faith, and cour- age that those pioneers have bequeathed us. Let us be the "strong men" who shall conquer the industrial wilderness. The greatest example of faith in oneself was Abraham Lincoln. All of us have read of Lincoln's life. Think of what ambition he must have had to rise from an uncouth, illiterate boy to the highest ofhce in our land. Who, hearing Lincoln's backwoods language as a youth, could foresee that the Great Emancipator would give the greatest speeches in the English language? Most of us are familiar with the "Gettysburg Address," but his masterpiece was the "Lost Speech," which so enthralled the listeners that even the hard-bitten newspapermen forgot to write it down, and this great speech was lost to pos- terity. All of us wish to succeed in life. To do so we must have similar faith and confidence in ourselves. If we see an opportunity, we must have the ut- most faith in our ability to meet the tests it offers us. Many think only of financial reimbursement as the sure sign of success, but as we plunge into this world, which is a sea of uncertainty and insecurity, we must never forget that we have probably achieved the highest degree of success when We have given something worthwhile to humanity. We must never, under any circum- stances, lose faith in ourselves. To lose faith means to lose every thing worth living for. Goethe, the German writer, expressed the right tone to take when he re- plied to a friend who said that he had many troubles: "Who never ate his bread in sorrow, Who never spent the darksome hours Weeping, and watching for the morrow- He know ye not, ye Heavenly Powers." It is adversity that brings out fortitude. The principal requisite of success is to act naturally, to be yourself, be- cause people can always see whether you are posing or not. Classmates, let us neither underestimate ourselves nor go to the opposite extreme of over estimat- ing ourselves. Our education has not ended with our leaving the beloved portals of the Nashua High School behind. Times change, and that which we have studied during our four years will seem antiquated a few years hence. But let us not think that our education automatically ends with the receiving of our diploma. Times change, and we must keep pace. Our high school education has been but a preparation to give us an open, broadminded view of life. Let us, therefore, classmates, face the future with courage, with an un- flinching belief in ourselves, the hope of succeeding to unprecedented heights, motivated by that priceless ambition which will make us aspire to the highest plateaus of living. GEORGE CACHIONA. I 18 TUSITALA Valedictor YOUTH'S GOAL No one knows the underlying purpose of life, nor why we are born, nor why we exist. No one is able to say whither we are traveling, for ' who holds the secret of death? Some of us be- lieve that we live only to suffer, then perish: others, that we are put here to get the most that we can from the world before we, too. pass on in- to the unknown. For ages great minds have sought the answers to the great questions of life, but no satisfactory ones have been forwarded. Yet, while we puzzle our minds for the answer to life, the world moves constantly on- ward, ever changing, for with it come new gener- ations, each eager to discover for itself the goal and l purpose of living. Now as we are the new gen- eration, we, too, are seeking a goal upon which to center our ambitions and energies. Naturally, we wish and demand that this aim combine all that is good, beautiful, and enduring. If one asks a person what he most desires from life, one will receive per- haps an answer like this: "I want knowledge, riches, success, and happiness." Are these the goal which all youth is seeking: or do we want something more? It is evident that riches cannot be our goal, for wealth is not enduring or satisfying. It is a common idea that wealth brings to one all that is good in life. Yes, it may bring the best of material things, but wealth cannot buy happiness or peace. Perhaps knowledge is the ever-sought goal, but of what value is learning if it is acquired for selfish or wrong motives? Minds of men, developed to a high degree have definitely contributed to the welfare of the world, but equally skilled and inventive brains have created instruments of war. Knowledge is a mighty and useful weapon which may either construct or destroy, but there is more to our goal than this. We all want to be successful. ls this youth's aim in life? No, for each individual's idea as to what constitutes success differs. We might wish suc- cess in business life, or in home life, or wish to be successful in so far as we win fame and fortune. The same is true of happiness as of success. Every one seeks it, yet for each it is different. It might be peace of mind to one, and power to another. Our goal is neither wealth, nor riches, success, nor happiness. To my mind. our goal is world betterment. We are not satisiied with the world as it is today. From every side one hears complaints against social injustices, economic injustices, political evils, and moral evils. The world. as compared with that of a few years ago, may appear almost ideal, but it is far from being so. The world will continue to advance as long as the people in it continue to contribute to its fund of attain- TUSITALA 119 ments. As long as there are those who are eager to push ahead and better con- ditions, civilization will more nearly approach an ideal state. The challenge of life, of our very existence, is the problem of contributing to the world something that will last, that will live on, that will throw out its influence over the future. There are many definite things which we, young as we are, can do to bet- ter the world. One of the most outstanding problems with which we now have to deal is that of racial intolerance. This intolerance of one country for another is a large factor in the mechanics of war. Young people everywhere are now rebelling against this inevitable and destructive result of social prej- udice. We must seek the understanding and friendship of other races and na- tions. We must free ourselves from prejudice, and open our minds to the new, great possibilities of world relationship. We must adapt ourselves more to the needs and demands of others, If we, the youth of the world. are broad- minded, friendly, and generous: if we accept without criticism the fact that other people have different creeds, faiths, and customs. we shall become the possessors of the invaluable lesson of world sympathy. We can contribute our education to the making of a better world. True, we are still inexperienced and untried, for we have much to learn. However. we do know something about the advantages of an education. We realize that education is necessary if we are to raise the standards of the world. Education acquired only with the idea of using it to further one's own wishes and desires is selfish and wrong. In the words of Rabbi Silver, "Education has a two- fold function to perform in the life of man and in the life of society: the one is utility and the other is culture." We must put to work the learning we have, and use it to help combat life's worries and problems: to help others, and through it, produce something worthwhile for mankind. Education should bring more beauty into every person's life, and open to him unlimited fields of knowledge. It should bring to his attention the most beautiful things in life, for this is its cultural function. If education were more universal, one can imagine what influence it would have upon the world. We must try to make it so. Our youth is a priceless factor in making the world better. We are not experienced, but we have the vitality, the eagerness, and the zest for life. We have ideas, original, and daring, from which will some day rise great accomp- lishments. The theme for a talk to young people given by Dr. Frank Laubach was the idea that today the world needs youth as it has never needed it before. The older generations are in a quandary and do not know where to turn. They are appealing to us, for they believe that we can lead this world into a better situation. There is a definite place for each of us in this world and we should try to discover it. However, although youth has much to offer for world betterment, we must not forget our mature group who can help us and teach us from their deep store of experience and disillusionment. I have set before you what I hope will be accepted as youth's goal. It combines all that is good, and enduring, and it is not impossible to attain, for has it not been going on for years before us? Let us then put to a definite use our education, and youth, and so live our lives that they will be an inspiration to the new and oncoming generations. Mr. Tracey, Mr. Noyes, and Members of the School Board: During the past years we have come to fully realize all that school means in the life of a person. We thank you and are grateful for all you have done for us. We realize that it has often been difficult for you to supply all our needs and demands, but we shall try to make ourselves worthy of your careful 120 TUSITALA and thoughtful consideration. All that you have accomplished for us will not be forgotten, and the memory will spur us on to become the kind of men and women you want us to be. Mr. Nesmith, and Teachers: Character and ideals are formed during our adolescent years, and you have had a major part in this undertaking. It was to you that we looked for Wis- dom, understanding, and learning, and although at times we seemed unappre- ciative, we thank you for all you have given us. We know that education cannot be acquired in a few years, but with your aid we have laid a good foundation upon which to build our future. You have been more than in- structors, you have been friends, helping and teaching us, making us conscious of the need of starting our lives with the right spirit-the spirit of courage, ambition, and service. Parents: . Your hearts are with us this night of graduation. For you, the years have sped so swiftly that it does not seem possible that we have become young men and women. You have shared with us from our earliest years, our hopes, failures, disappointments, and joys. To you We owe a debt which we can never truly repay, but we can succeed for you and we shall. Because of your sacrifices and unselfishness, we have been given the advantage of an education. Now, have faith in our abilities, help us in the future as you have in the past, and give us your support as we seek the attainment of our goal. Classmates: This is the last time we shall ever meet together as a group. The past four years we worked and played together, and became the organized body known as the Class of 1936. We are proud of that name and we want to bring it honor. Tonight, as we leave this hall, we put behind us this care- free school life, but the memories of all we have shared will follow us into the future, We are now young men and women, and we have our part to play in the world, We have set as our goal world betterment, for this combines all the fine things in life that we seek. Now, let us go forward, confident that we shall keep our promise to ourselves and our friends, by giving the best that we have to the betterment of humanity. LILLIAN BLAKE.
