She always had some joke or riddle to solve, and her ceaseless merriment was always appreciated. RUTH ELAINE ARNOLD "RUTHIE" "She that was euer fair and never proud, Had tongue at will and ye! was never loud." Ruth's company was certainly always enjoyed. Her friends were many and her enemies few. An ambitious student and on the Upper Fourth. JOSEPH AUGUN "JOE" "Little said is soonest mended." "Joe" is a likable chap who is really quite studi- ous and ambitious. His fame as an accordionist has spread both far and near, and we are sure that some day we shall be proud of his musical abil- ity. Cabaret Vaudeville III. TUSITALA JOHN AUGUNAS "OGOONIE" "I know u trick worth Iwo of that." Carefree and easy-going, John has provided many a laugh at the teachers expense and is quite popu- lar with all.

Taltler Reporter II, Upper Iiourth. LENA BACKANOWSKAS "LEE" "A very ultrarliue gentle lady." "I.ee" maintains a dignity and calm for all ex- cept her most intimate friends. Once her quiet sur- face is penetrated a hidden joviality that is most enjoyable is found. Decorating Committee A. A Dance III, Glee Club IV, Home Economics IV. FRANK BANIESEVICI-I "BARB" "To know him was a privilege." The mystery about "Barb" was how he did so much in so little time, but in spite of his ceaseless activity he always found time to talk for a minute or to do a favor, Football II. III, IV. Baseball IV, Track II. III. Basketball III, IV. TUSITALA PHILIP BANIOS "FIRPO" "Better be small and shine Than be tull and fast u shadow." Small of stature but possessing big ideas.

Track III, Chairman of the Stage Committee for Senior Play. FRANCIS C. BARRY "I have found you an argument: But I am not obliged to End you un understanding." How he did delight in discussing the technicali- ties of the Constitution and raising questions about it that John Marshall himself couldn't answer! Con- sidering that he is our most famous artist. we look upon his numerous whimsicalities and active brain as elements of his genius. Art Club II. III. IV. Library Club IV. Chemistry Club III. Publicity Committee Senior Play IV. Upper Fourth. TUSITALA KATHRYN V. BARRY "KAY" "To those who know thee not, no words can paintf And those who know thee. know all words are faint!" "Kay" is a girl who has a way with her-a way to our best known male hearts! She managed to have time for good marks and still to take part in extra-curricular activities-as well as keeping up her dating average. That's pretty good! Dramatics Club II. III. IV. Glee Club III, IV, General Com- mittee A. A Dance IV, Reporter IV. Senior Play IV. Prompter for Tournament Play, "The Man in the Bowler Hat" IV, Vice President Athletic As- sociation IV. Upper Fourth. PAUL BARTLETT "PAUI-Y" "True humility. The highest virtue. mother of them ull." Paul was a good scout who always placed his model A "Dizzie" at your disposal. It was just as trustworthy as Patil himself: not only took you, but brought you back. Upper Fourth. CONSTANCE BEAROR "CONNIE" "A winsome maid was she. And fair lo look upon," "Connie" has a host of friends and knows how to keep them. She is full of joy and "pep," and her white sweater was a shining light wherever it was seen. Glee Club III. Chemistry Club III. Usher at Senior Play IV. Tattler Reporter IV. JOHN BEAULIEU "JOHNNY" "My face may be sober, but, oh, the qlee in my heart "Johnny" always seemed to come to school only to get away from it as quickly as possible.

Wilda always went ahead and did her work with little help. She was quiet in many ways, but now and then we did hear her giggle. Wilda was a friend worth knowing. Glee Club. ROBERT BELANGER "BABE" "Let me, then. he' up and doing," Robert might easily have passed for the class optimist he was always so lightfhearted and care- free. He was one of the best natured students in school and won accordingly a great number of friends. One of his best qualities was his kindli- ness and consideration for others. Football II, III. IV. Track IV. RAMONA BIELZII. "WHAT A SINGER" "Her ways are ways of QllI'Cff7L'SS.I Ramona's pretty hair was the envy of many girls who were less fortunate than she. Although she spoke seldom. her remarks were witty and appre- ciated by those who heard them. Reporter II, SHIRLEY BERNARD "SHIRT," "She was fl person of delight." In every one of her classes Shirley was the same cheerful, good-natured girl. There was never a dull moment with her around. which was probably the reason she was so well liked. TUSITALA VETO BERNIKOWICZ "BERNIE" "No path of flowers leads to glory." Despite his stature Veto has done exceedingly well in all his undertakings and deserves praise for his grit and wit. Tattler Reporter I. Football II. III. Track II, Basketball II. III. IV. MYRI,li li. BETTS "Quiet, serene, hut full of fun." At first Myrle gave the impression of being quiet. but once you get to know her you know different- ly. Her sociability and happy countenance made her a valuable member in every classroom, ERNEST BIBEAU "SI'IORTY" "Slow and steady wins the rare." In the class that seems to be made up of quiet members, "Shorty" is exceptional. He is one of the "mystery men" of the class, never speaking un- less absolutely necessary. ROBERT BIBEAU "Mine is as good as his." Robert is one of the big men of our class-both in stature and in his appreciation of humor. He has been known to set a whole class laughing with one of his jokes. TUSITALA ELLEN FRANCES BIRCHALL "The only way to have a friend is to be one." Ellen must believe in this maxim because she has so many friends. When you speak of her to any- one who knows her even slightly, the reaction is, "Ellen? Oh yes. I like her." So say we all. Dramatic Club II, III. Prompter Senior Play, Up- per Fourth. PAUL BISSONETTE "BISY" "The world knows nothing of its greatest men." Paul was always a thoughtful boy and appeared to be of a serious nature. To really appreciate his real personality one must know him well. Track IV. Cross Country IV. HIAWATHA BLOOD "The man that is tall Has sight ouer all." Hiawatha was one of our A'visitors-from-Hud- son." He enjoyed the best of friends. and his poise and self-possession never failed him at any time. LUCILLE E. BOILARD "FLASH" "Her frowns are fairer far. Than smiles of other maidens are." Lucille was at the same time the pride and despair of her less fortunate classmates. Pride at having her as a classmate and despair of ever surpassing her beauty. Glee Club IV, Cheerleader IV, Home Eco- nomics Club IV. TUSITALA RACHEL BOILARD "RAE-Cl-IEE" "She was all a modern girl should be." Poise. dignity, and understanding characterized "Rae-cheef' but under that there was a gay. happy girl that was always good company. She was a perfect lady at all times and never tried to make herself too noticeable. Glee Club IV. Home Eco- nomics Club III. IV, General and Music Commit- tee A. A. Dance III.

She was always conscious of any fun. Ten- nis Club IV, Chemistry Club III. Dramatics Club Ill. Costume Committee for Senior Play, Upper linurth. RAYMOND BOSSE "RAY" "Whc: revels in honest endeavor." "Ray" never said very much. 'He attended to his own affairs and did them well. JEANNE 1sABE1.i1g BOUCHER "izzY" "Please lake my lhoughls for thanks, I have no words." "Izzy" is a quiet girl who pays attention to the more important things in life such as studying. and therefore, did not have time for fooling in the classroom. When the occasion demanded it, how- ever, she was as jolly as the next person. TUSITALA RITA BOUCHER "Her eyes as stars of twilight fair: Like tiuilight, too, her dusky hair." Rita always had a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye. She did not participate in school ac- tivities, but was well liked by all her friends. GERTRUDE BOURDON HGERTYH "So quiet, calm, and kind in many ways." Gertrude is always a pleasant girl to talk with. She has a radiant smile, and is one of our best natured girls. JOHN BOURDON "The man of such a genial mood." John didn't have any school activities. and we don't know about his outside activities. However. we know that he came a long way each day for his high school education. RAYMOND WILLIAM BOWNE, JR. "For courage mountelh with the occasion." He has that devil-may-care look that is so inter- esting-particularly for one of the fairer sex. The number of his friends is proof of his popularity. Football Ill. TUSITALA VIVIAN ALMA BRIE "BRIEZY" "Her heart is young and gay." Vivian was forever chatting--Erst this and then that, but one thing we have to say is that what- ever she said was worthwhile. Vivian's pet hob- by is the movies, but wait, I'll let you in on a se- cret-she's a "swellelegant" guitar player. Glee Club III, IV, Usher Senior Play IV, Orchestra IV. VEDA LUCILLE BROWN 4 "BRowN1E" "Sober but not serious, Quiet but not idle." Veda's quiet friendliness and agreeable manner were the causes for her being well-liked. She made few friends, but only because she chose to do so. Her unending support and loyalty made her dear to these fortunate few. Tennis II. Dramatics II, Glee Club II. III, IV, Home Economics IV. ERNEST BULGER "ERNIE" "One vast substantial smile." "Ernie" never had a care the whole four years of high school, so it seemed, although we noticed that he was often on the honor roll. His extreme good nature will be remembered by all. Track IV. Graduation Usher III, Upper Fourth. ELIZABETH H. BUXTON "BETTY" "A soft voice bespeaks a gentle manner." "Betty" was the dignified girl who had little to say until the proper moment came. She is just loads of .fun when you know her and her acting ability has increased through constant use. Good luck in college, "Bettv." Dramatics Club II, Glee Club IV, Upper Fourth. TUSITALA ALBERT ERNEST CARLING HAL., "A merry heart with a merry countenance." "Al" was never caught napping in conversation. and he was just as alert on the tennis court. Pity the one who tried to argue against him! "Al" was always one step ahead of the other fellow. Ten- nis Club II, President III. IV. Tennis Team II. III. Captain IV, Chorus Il, III, IV, Glee Club III. IV. BARBARA CARRIER "BABE" "She was as happy as the day is long." Barbara was never grouchy-far from it. She was a regular gloom Chaser, She could brighten any room with her mirth, especially a chemistry class. In fact. she could always be depended on to brighten any dull affair. Glee Club IV. MARIETTE CHAGNON "Mischief sparkles in her eyes, And her laughter never dies." With a smile on her lips and rippling laughter ready to break forth at the least provocation, Mari- ette certainly did her bit toward keeping her class- mates in happy spirits.

TUSITALA ROI.AND T. CHAREST "PROP" "Men of few words are the best men." "Prof" was always ready to offer his excellent opinion on current-day topics. His good judg- ment should enable him to find an important posi- tion in later life. Glee Club Il. III. LUCILLE JACQUELINE CI-IARRON "LOU" "How her Hngers went when they moved by note through measure five." Lucille was one of our modest but talented pian- ists. and one who always kept abreast with the ever- changing fashion world. She was very quiet in school, but was a very good sport. Home Eco- nomics II, Glee Club IV. FRANK DAVID CHESSON "CHESSY" "To he with him was lo be with good company." An attractive personality and a genuine sense of humor are the reasons for Frank's popularity among his classmates. "Chessy's" wide grin was a fa- miliar sight around the corridors. Track II, III, IV. Cross Country III. EVELYN CHEVRETTE "EVVY" "A smile for all. a welcome glad, A jovial, pleasing way she had." Evelyn has many friends which were won by her jolly ways. She is so full of pep it's hard to im- agine her ever serious. At any rate she is known to be "a swell kid." TUSITALA ARTHUR GEORGE CHIIVIIKLIS "CHIMMY" "I would make reason my guide." He made a place for himself all over again with the class of '37-and it's a place to be envied. "Chimmy's" amiable disposition and his brilliant scholastic record can't be surpassed. We expect a great deal from you! Golf Manager IV, Tennis I. II. III. IV, Press Club IV. Debating Club I. II, III. IV, Senior Play Ticket Committee, Talller Re- porter IV, Part in State Entry Play IV. "The Man in the Bowler Hat," Upper Fourth. BEATRICE GEORGE CHIMIKLIS HB., "Ease with dignity."

Dramatics II, III, IV, Tennis IV, Costume Com- mittee Senior Play IV, New Fires IV. RICHARD HOLT CLARK "DICK" "A town lhat boasts inhabitants like me Can have no lack of good society," No other words can describe "Dick" as well. An ardent devotee of O. Henry, his life was just as unexpected and entertaining as his favorite author's plots. He was a tremendous reader and possessed a knowledge of history which was unusual. Dra- matics II, Property Committee Senior Play IV, Up- per Fourth. HAROLD CLIFFORD "SONNY" 'xYoung fellows will be young fellows." We envy Harold his ability to get through a dif- ficult period as effortlessly as water rolls off a duck's back. Although he was of pocket edition size he was capable of keeping a class in a continuous up- roar. TUSITALA GIITITORD COLBURN HGIFFEYH "And Iet's be red with mirth!" No matter how solemn the occasion, no one could keep a straight face when 'AGiffey" started clowning. He proved an actor in the Senior Play. Dramatics Club ll. Ill. Vice President IV, Band II. III. Orchestra Ill, IV, Cilee Club II, Ill, IV, Senior Play. JESSIE COLEMAN "A horsef u horsef my kingdom for u horse."' Whenever you hear something that sounds like the "Charge of the Light Brigade" don't be alarmed, because it's just Jessie. Nashua Highs equestrienne, having her daily gallop. She always had her work clone, although her hobby and her violin kept her from joining us very often. Upper Fourth. MARCELLINE CONNOR "lVlARCY" "Laugh and the world Iuuyhs with you." Maine never lost prestige by having "Marcy" for a resident. Remember how they could alwavs do something a little better "down in Mainen? Home Economics Club IV. l,UCII.I-E COTE ULU.. "Her ways are ways of pleusantness And all her paths are peace." "l.u" did not participate in very many school activities, but whatever she did was done with a smile and a great deal of patience. 1 J TUSITALA SYLVIO A. COTE "SYL" "Mercury's helper hastens on." Sylvio was truly a messenger for Mercury. He ran o'er hill and dale and also on the cinder track. Industrious, cooperative, and likable, Sylvio will get along. Football I, Track III, IV, Cross Coun- try II, III. FLORENCE COURTEMANCHE "ELO" "A quiet tongue shows a wise head." Florence was rather quiet in school. but she al- ways had a good time in her own quiet way out- side. She always remembered that there was a time for play-and work. Glee Club IV. LORRAINE CROSS l'RED" "A womans hair is her crowning glorqf' Vivacious and gay. Lorraine has a witty remark for every occasion. Her personality is as sparkling as her hair is bright. No one would have recog- nized her in her excellent characterization of "Lu- cinda" in the Senior Play. Glee Club I, II, III. IV, Dramatic Club III, IV, Alumni Editor Tattler IV. Senior Play, "A Little Planning" IV. GERALDINE CUDHEA "GERRY" "A daughter of the gods, divinely tall, And most divinely fair." "Gerry" would have us believe that she's blase and so sophisticated. but we know that deep down inside she's really not like that at all. Her ability to wear clothes is the envy of every diminutive tive- footer in the class. Chairman of Costume Com- mittee for Senior Play. A 5.. TUSITALA JOSEPH CULLEN "JOE" "ln him was the love of fun." "Joe" or "Red" looked quiet-but once he got started there was no limit to him. His sense of humor and ability "to take it" made him known. as he always will he known. as Ha good fellow." Chemistry III. GLADYS l-II-I.IAN CUNNINGHAM HSKIPPERH "Whu1 an advantage il is to be lull."

"BROWNIE" "A friend wilh ull. An enemy wilh none." "Ruthie," with her winning ways, her cute giggle. and all-round sweetness. was a friend one could never regret having. A fortunate member of Upper liourth. Property Committee for Senior Play. EVA DARLING "PAI-SY" "With a mind free from fare." Eva's last name Hts her perfectly. as everyone will tell you. Always ready with some witty remark, she had a sense of humor to be envied. Chemistry Club III. TUSITALA DOROTHY DAVIS "DEEDLE" "She is silent, she is shy, Bur there-'s mischief in her eye." Only the persons who know her best realize just how witty "Dee" can be. Her shyness hides a world of pep and gaiety. "Dee" loves to knit and writes excellent poetry. Upper Fourth. FLORENCE DEGASIS "PLO" "As merry as the day is long." "Flo" was one of our jolliest classmates. She was endowed with a merry face, a friendly disposi- tion, and an infectious giggle. What wouldn't we give to be as cheerful and friendly as she? Tattler Reporter I, Glee Club IV. ROBERT DEMERS "BOB" "A pal Io all and a grand good sport." One of the more quiet and conservative group. not always talking. yet ready when needed, "Bob" could always be depended upon. He conversed verv little except with his best friends, but they will testify to his all-around attractiveness. Senior Play Ticket Committee.

I shall not loolz upon his like again." ll's always rather dilhcult to catch up to "Bill," since he's so modest and determined to avoid the limelight. But it's worth the struggle. because everyone knows how nice lalso intelligentll he is. He's outstanding now. and we think he always will be. Taltler Reporter II. Associate Editor for Tusilala. Upper I7ourth. EUGENE DION "GENE" "Short and smzppg-always happgl Luclzg are those who call him friend." Eugene is a likable person and everybody who knows him enjoys his company.

MERCEDES DIONNE "MERCER "Not so serious No! so gag liar a rare gootl girl." i'Merce" was very quiet in school. and one couldn't really appreciate her until you had met her socially.

We entered the portals of Nashua High School in the fall of 1933. As freshmen we were busy learning the ropes of a large High School Cwe didn't get lost in the corridors after the first two weeksj, attending to our studies, and dreaming about the days when we would be seniors. Because our classes were held in the afternoon most of us acquired the habit of late rising, fsome haven't gotten out of the habit yetl. Our freshman year ended uneventfully and the fall of 1934 saw most of us again taking up our studies, although some of our classmates had moved away or gone to work. We were more sure of ourselves this year and though reprimanded a few times, were remarkably well behaved for a large class in a crowded building. As our junior year rolled around members of the class came into the spot- light. Some of our more hardy classmates showed up well on the football field, baseball diamond, and basketball floor, as well as the tennis, track, and golf teams: meanwhile others with talents leaning in a different direction be- came leaders in the dramatic and debating societies. About mid year, after a spirited election, the following class officers were elected: Arthur Stevens, president: Claire Richard. vice president: David Heald. business manager: and Madeline Papachristos, secretary. In the early spring we received our class rings, but they were soon thrust into the background, for that event of events was at hand. On the night of April 16, 1936, our Junior Prom was held in the school auditorium. lt was a brilliant event, with the junior boys in flannels and dark coats and the girls in evening dresses. The class was congratulated many times on the smoothness which characterized the whole event. Before school closed the following class oflicers were elected for our senior year: Richard Leonard. president: Sabina Kozlowski. vice president: Felix Krym, business manager: and Claire Richard, secretary. We all left school with the satisfaction of know- ing that next year we would be the Senior Class of Nashua High School. In the fall we came back to school eager to do or die in these last few months of our high school career. School started with a bang, and it wasn't long before we all had plenty of studying, but this failed to dampen our spirits, and extra-curricular activities played a prominent part in our school life. 84 TUSITALA Before school seemed fairly underway the Senior Play was announced, and after much hard work rehearsing and preparing, on the night of December fourth, "New Fires" was presented to a very appreciative audience. The new year rolled around to find us all studying hard, for the end of the semester was near at hand. After this crisis was passed we again took up many activities, with the State One-Act Play Contest, Original Play Contest, and the Debating Tournament heading the list. During the fall and winter months members of our class had distinguished themselves on the football and basketball teams, which were both among the best that Nashua High has ever had. A momentous occasion in our school career was the announcement of the Upper Fourth on April fifth. The fortunate ones who had worked hard for the honor were satisfied, others were disappointed, but everyone bore the news like a good sport. Pictures came into evidence about this time, and results were viewed with satisfaction Cand alarml. The highlights of the last few weeks of school were the Noyes Contest, the Dodge Contest, and spring athletics, with the rest of our time spent in earnest studying to put the Hnal touches on our school work. Then with a sigh over a job well done, we waited for commencement week and the festivities connected with it. ' On the night of June twenty-third, our last great social event was held, the Senior Prom. It was a brilliant affair, one that will be held dear in the hearts of the seniors for many years. Tonight we are enjoying class night, one that should long be remembered for the merriment and fellowship enjoyed by all those present. Tomorrow night the climaxing affair of our whole school career will be held, GRADUATION. Nashua High School will pass out of our lives as a place of learning, and our high school life will be ended forever. Many of us look forward to college days, others less fortunate will enter business or industrial fields and from here make our way in the World. Others -every class has its drifters. We shall never all assemble under one roof again, but the impression four years at Nashua High School has imbedded in our memories will never be erased. F. WILLIAM HALL, JR.

We have upheld the tradition which our school has acquired through its various outstanding teams. We have carried on as preceding classes have in establishing a name for ourselves in the eyes of the local public as well as in various other cities. Athletic enthusiasts have noted the cooperation and clean sportsman ship exhibited by teams carrying the colors of our dear high school and have prided themselves on being supporters of the Royal Blue. We have afforded keen competition in all our respective sports and have established in our minds the characteristics which are acquired as a result of such endeavors. Although the class of '37 had not many outstanding athletes during the nrst two years of our high school life, the last two years brought forth excellent athletic material. The discontinuing of the freshman football team, which other classes have had, was I believe, one of the reasons for the late appearance of our outstanding athletes. Freshman participation in football helps a great deal in moulding a football player: it creates in him the spirit of cooperation and sportsmanship and, most important of all, it gives him the sense of com- petition and experience which are the most important factors in creating an ath- lete. During our freshman year there were no members of the class of '37 on any varsity squad. The disadvantage of attending school in the afternoon would not permit any member to try out for the teams. When we entered our sophomore year, various members of our class tried out for the teams and made the varsity squad. Although none of them acf quired letters in their respective sports, nevertheless they were gaining experience for the future. In football "Otty" Wardner, Graham, Baniesevich, Lagios, Lyszczas, and lVlichaud were members of the varsity squad. In basketball our class was again represented on the court by Bernikowicz, and Narkunas. Basef ball season brought forth Otis Wardner and Narkunas as members of the squad, In track Rasmovich set his pace and competed among the best of them in throw- ing the weights. He was then elected co-captain of the team. As runners we found Styrna, Cote, Bernikowicz, and Lagios building up their stamina for fu- ture events. In golf Richard Leonard was the only letterman on the team from our class. ln tennis Brendan Sullivan was l937's only representative on the team. TUSITALA IQ37 LETTER MEN TUSITALA 87 Junior year we discovered members of our class with real ability. In football we saw a host of our classmates on the varsity squad, but none of them so outstanding as to gain a first-string berth. In this vigorous sport "Winnie" Graham, "Fat" Michaud, "Eddie" Lyszczas, and "Winnie" Noel were all let- termen. "Winnie" Noel and Graham were chosen as co-captains to lead the Royal Blues on the gridiron the next fall. As the attention of our class was then focused on basketball, we saw that the indomitable "Steve" Narkunas was holding down a forward berth on the first-string lineup, and Vito Bernikowicz, and Dale O'Connell were also on the squad. They all received letters that year, and "Steve" Narkunas, the most out- standing player on the team, was elected captain. Philip Banios received his letter as manager of the team. Then came baseball, and here was "Steve" again holding down third base as his position on the team. "Otty" Wardner took his turn at catching, and "Winnie" Graham was the pitcher. These members all received letters. The state title was lost to Keene in a bitter, gruelling game. As the track season approached, numerous records were broken by members of our class. "Beemba" Rasmovich, co-captain of the team, took his share of the laurels, as did Stanley Styrna. and Sylvio Cote: other members of the team were Bernikowicz, Lagios, Baniesevich, O'Connell, and Chesson. That year's cross country team was composed of Chesson, Styrna, and Cote. Although the harriers did not win too great a number of meets, they gave a very good account of themselves in every meet. This year, 1937 was represented on the golf team by Richard Leonard, Albert Lipnick, Richard Mercer, and Arthur Stevens. This team set up quite a record, claiming the state title, which they rightly deserved. On the tennis team were Elbling, Carling, Brendan Sullivan, and Pietuch. They, also, won the title as state champions. Senior year was the most eventful and most memorable year of our high school life. In football almost the whole first string was composed of mem- bers of our class. In the line were that hard tackling guard "Eddie" Lyszczasg his mate, co-captain of the team "Winnie" Noel, who held down the other guard position: their two side-mates, "Fat" Michaud and Neville, two hard- smashing tackles, who were usually in the middle of every play: and at right was "Steve" Narkunas, the All-Stater, who was noted for his snatching of touchdown passes. In the backfield were the hard-plunging fullback "Barb" Baniesevich, the end-sweeping fast little bundle of dynamite "Winnie" Gra- ham, and that tall pass-throwing halfback "Beemba" Rasmovich. This com- posed the first team, and by placing three of them on the All-State-Graham. Noel, and Narkunas-we ended i'l937's" football career in a blaze of glory. Other lettermen were O'Connel'l, Wardner, and Moore. In basketball 'iSteve" Narkunas led his Royal Blues on the court and swept through all kinds of com- petition. establishing one of the finest records that any basketball team from Nashua High has ever had. They totalled a record of sixteen wins and five losses, after losing a heart-breaking game to Berlin for the state finals. On this line team 'iSteve" Narkunas had been shifted to a guard position. Dale O'Con- nell and Wilfred Michaud, brilliant stars of the Nashua team, were given places on the mythical All-State Team. Other lettermen on the team were Frank Baniesevich, a guard, and Vito Bernikowicz, a forward. Baseball season is here, and although I cannot predict how successful the team will be, I can see at a glance that with Lyszczas and Lagios as pitchers, "Steve" Narkunas and Noel as catchers, Economopoulos and Michaud as fielders, it will again be in the running for the state championship. The golf team should easily again sweep through all sorts of competition and emerge as victors with Richard Leonard as captain, and such teammates as Lipnick, Mercer, and Stevens. The track team this year is composed of Captain Stanley Styrna, Richard O'Connell, and 88 TUSITALA Sylvio Cote, in the running events, and "Beemba" Rasmovich throwing the weights. These boys should again give a good account of themselves as they always have in all meets. In conclusion and in behalf of my fellow teammates I would like to ex- press our gratitude to our ever encouraging coaches, Peter Chesnulevich, Win- fred Mansfield, John Curran, Webster White, and Patrick Morley. These men have instilled in our minds the ideas of cooperation and clean sportsmanship, which will forever remain as lessons of our high school days. To our faculty manager, Cheney Lawrence, we express our appreciation for his every effort to increase school spirit, and for his eflicient management of our teams. FRANK BANIESEVICH.

She was a Hgure of spontaneous ex- clamations, ruflled anger, and determination throughout the entire performance of New Fires. Her constant squelching of poor Suzanne, played by Madeline Papachristos, made us fairly burn with sympathy for the victim of the "ter- ror's" clutches. The victim finally gained her reward by being successor to her tormentor.

Have you ever seen a streak of lightning? That's what Richard Strain re- minded me of. He was a newcomer to our great institution tfor those who don't know how great it is-Nashua High Schooll just in time to "run away" with the honor of being a father and author. in New Fires. He played the part of both with amazing and superb bearing. One forgot the person, Richard Strain. and thought of the same only as Stephen Santry, father ofa selfish fam- ily who had never known the meaning of work, or the consideration of people who do. We shall long remember him standing alone. and trying, with his back against the wall, to break down the barriers cropping up between him and his family. 90 TUSITALA During the family conflict there were two people who stood by their Dad. Billy, played by Ralph Kelly, and Phyllis, his fellow-conspirator when pranks were in order, played by Sabina Kozlowski. welcomed the chance to live in the peace of the country, and get away from the 'lSassiety" of the city. Billy pro- duced most of the laughs for the play with his imitations, remarks that held only scorn for the cream of the "400." and his teasing manner toward his sis- ter, Phyllis, who with her lovable manner and cheerful teasing disposition was enjoyed greatly. Mrs. Stephen Santry was played by Ursula Harte, who fitted easily into the part of a dignified mother, loving her children, but being a little too over- anxious for their social upbringing, She adapted herself to this role with ease, and led the opposing force of wills between the father and family. Kathryn Barry portrayed the part of Olive Santry, selfish, pleasure-mad daughter of Stephen Santry. How anxious Kay was about the fainting scenel We didn't blame her, seeing how they tried to put half of her on the outside of the curtain during rehearsals. Remember? We shall frankly own up how we envied the ease and finesse of manner with which Dexter Johnson played Richard Santry lDickl, a newly married man. CBoy, what a responsibilitylj Who was the responsibility? None other than Helen Garrity, playing Eve Santry. She wanted new curtains, maybe a car, and cream dishes with a blue border .... or was it red?

Remember how he humored Kay with her "heart trouble." and then became so engrossed with it, he found out he had it tool QMust be catching.J You handled your profession with ease, Gilford, but you better see Dexter about lessons pertaining to the latter mat- IGF. Georgia Gorman was Mary Marshall, friend of Phyllis and Billy. lt was she who kept the family from departing from the country. by contracting scarlet fever, and quarantining the house. The stay in the country brought the fam- ily closer. and taught them the true values of life. After this the rest of the family gave a party for the celebration of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Santry's twenty- Hfth anniversary, at which appeared Mary's mother, Mrs. Marshall, played by Helen Russell Qalso a newcomerb, and Mrs. Sperry, played by Beatrice Chim- iklis. TUSITALA - 91 The play was a huge success, but after all what else could it be when Miss Cornell undertakes the task of directing it? The next summons for dramatic talent was issued about March l when try-outs for Nashua High's entry in the State Tournament were held. David Heald was chosen as the hero of "The Man in the Bowler Hat," a terribly ex- citing affair. The part of the fluttering heroine was assigned to 'Helen Gar- rity. Joseph Rudnick and Ursula Harte as the very ordinary couple to whom nothing exciting ever happened were well matched. Arthur Chimiklis and Dana MacClennan as the two villains proved to be particularly villainous. Up- on close inspection one found William Hall as "the man in the bowler hat" hiding behind an enormous black cigar and beneath a derby hat. The third outstanding dramatic achievement of the class of '37 was Helen Russell's original play, "A Little Planning." Madeline Papachristos, as the overworked housewife, decides to take things in hand and shift some of her burden upon the other members of the family. By employing a little feminine psychology she manages to swing things around so that we find Edward Ly- szczas, the successful business man, very matter-of-factedly washing the dishes. Helen Russell, as the young modern who spends most of her time trying to get rid of her younger sister and brother, Beryl Short and Ralph Kelly, in order that she may have recourse to the parlor to entertain her boy-friend, played by Dexter Johnson, gives the play a snappy, modern angle. The class of 1937 has enjoyed such a successful dramatic career that We may not be surprised-to see in the years to come the name or names of some of Nashua High's own actors and actresses appearing in bright lights. This is, of course, a mere supposition. BEATRICE CHIMIKLIS and KATHRYN BARRY. C 2 TUSITALA :W . ,:1. w hr. JL ,,!. , 'xi A- Q, ,Wm 1, 1 :M -' i. :jy,11Hm,Y1 .,,,. 'M V .r ..,.1P ,.,-, 3 Jw' 'f'.

According to the latest book on etiquette by Lena Backanouskas, Mariette Chagnon, and Helen Ermala, at busi- ness meetings such formalities may be dispensed with. I had intended to be here earlier, gentlemen, but I was delayed partly by a conference with Donald Spence and Stanley Styrna of the Brookings Institute. Those two economists seem to think that this strike can be settled peaceably. I certainly hope it can. because I was delayed at the airport coming in. Not that I minded so much because I knew you would forgive me if I were late. but the other passengers, and the pilot and co-pilot, Albert Neville and Ralph Kelley, were greatly inconvenienced by the airport strike, Ellen Birchall and Sylvia Boire, heads of the Byrtwood School for Girls: Vivian Brie, the world's greatest banjo player, and her quartet of famous precision dancers, Dorothy O'Neil, Ruth Currul, Doris Andriopoulos, and Mary Pelletier, together with their piano accompanist, Anna Eorrence: Constance Alexopoulos and Ruth Arnold, interior decorators for Marshson's Department Store: John Barron and Roger Shaw, Australian sheep ranchers: Veto Bernikowicz, back from the Orient with new discoveries of spices: and Beatrice Chimiklis and Elizabeth Buxton, those two eminent psychologists, were all delayed due to that airport strike. I hate to think of what such a delay may have cost them! For just such reasons, the National Guard under Majors Donald McInnis and Francis O'Neil, has been ordered out by Governor William Dignam. Yes, and Wilfred Guy and Luther Geer, heads of the local air- plane union, have been hurt by your men. When the ambulance. driven by Merton Duncklee, who holds the United States Ambu- lance Drivers' Cup for Safety, arrived with Ruth Eaton and Eileen Gardner. accompanying emergency surgeons. George Donovan, the Chief Detective, reported that Harold Clifford and members of his troupe had also been injured. You know Clifford, the singer, 98 TUSITALA MADELINEZ URSULA: DAVID: LEON: MADELINE: DAVID 1 IVIADELINEZ DAVID: URSULA1 has with him Joseph Augun, the world-renowned maestro of the accordion, and Natalie Hamel, dancer and director of the Hamel School of Ballet. National Guardsmen, skirmishing with strik- ers, accidentally hit the car in which they were riding. I say that the National Guard is taking the wrong steps in attempting to stop the strikers. Violence must be avoided at all costs. Yes, that's true. I was appalled to hear that Felix Krym, owner of the Krym Krumby Kracker Kompany, and his business associ- ates, Albert Laforest, efiiciency expertg Sotirios Lagios, sales manager and Jessie Lampron and Lena Maynard their secretaries, were seriously injured when- Yes, I know. I'm getting these reports all the time through Frank Chessun and John Beaulieu, two of the S. O. S.'s ace re- porters. Also John Augunas and Bernard Barbeau have wired that their shoe factory in the East is ready to come to terms. This has been brought about by a mediation board meeting at which Olin McAdoo, New York Chamber of Commerce head, Charles Hood, shoe buyer for the National Department Stores, and the heads of the company were present. Order must be maintained. Why, only yesterday Gertrude Bour- don and Roberta Tolman reported that their department store had been burglarized. Some of your srikers broke into the hard- ware store owned by Paul Bissonette and Raymond Bosse to ob- tain tools to carry on their picketing. Paul Bartlett, local egg man, and Frederick Herbert, dairy owner, reported that some of their products had been seized by an army of strikers' wives headed by Rita Boucher and Genevieve Grygiel. Such actions must cease! I've received hundreds of letters from business men all over the country imploring me to do something about the labor situation. I have some of those letters here in this brief case. CShe fumblesl While she is getting those letters, I might say that Perley Prior, proprietor of Prior's Petroleum Products Company, and Robert Wardner, the distribution agent for the Hart Oil Company, owned by Paul Hart, have complained that their business is ruined be- cause strikers are not able to drive their cars. I have here a letter from Anthony Rasmovich, sportswriter for the Weekly Clarion. He says that the Shepherd School of Physi- cal Education, owned by Doris Shepherd, had to close due to lack of business. He also says he has received complaints from various professional sports organizations. Here's another letter from Ruth Pendleton and Madeline Michaud, joint owners of a once flourishing music store. According to this letter there isn't any more business to flourish! CTelephone rings.D Hello?-It's for you, Madame President:- Hello! About the hotel accommodations? Well, let me see- How many are there? On the secretarial staff there are four women: Sofia Kushinski, Angie D'Orazio, Florence Degasis, and Veda Brown. Then, of course, there are the Secret Service men. James Spillane, Hugh Wiggins, and William Yuknewicz. Yes, I think that's all. CHangs upj Evidently there's some trouble at the hotel. TUSITALA 99 LEON: DAVID: MADELINEI Dixvin: MADELINE: DAVID: LEON: Yes, according to Mayor George Moore and Alderman Nick Pana- goulis, everyone in this community is affected. Polyxiene Sty- lianos and Esther Trufant, the co-owners of the Butter-Baked Bread Bakery, have ceased buying flour from Dionysius Economo- poulos and Peter Stack, wholesalers. who in turn have no need for the wheat grown by Jerry Kushinski and Anthony Shishlo. The Fritzi-Ritz Filling Station owned by John Varney, who dis- tributes Robert Rowell's Zulu Gas, reports a sharp decrease in the amount of fuel consumed. But, on the other hand, conditions here are such that those two eminent research doctors, Paul .lau- ron and Lloyd Levesque, had to be summoned from their moun- tain laboratory in order to help Brendan Sullivan, the local doc- tor, cope with the rushing business in scratches and bruises. Scratches and bruises are only minor compared to the more serious injuries sustained by the strikers. Arthur Stevens, the noted sur- geon, has been Sent for but is unable to come because he is away on a mysterious cruise with Richard Mercer, chairman of the Na- tional Automobile Association which is attempting to decrease the speed of vehicles on the ground. I admit the situation is grave, but this would not have arisen if capital had cooperated with labor. According to reports, the key industries in the United States today have suffered. Yes, but not half so much as the laborers. Here is quite a lengthy report from the head of the California Fruit Growers' Association, Ernest McCoy: and another' from Sabina Kozlowski and Betty Lee of the No Hit No Run Hosiery Com- pany. Miss Kozlowski is the president of the company, and Miss Lee the general manager. Also a report from a special investiga- tor, Androniki Gatgos, who has been investigating Southern in- dustry. She has included in her report the opinion of Robert Moore, president of the Southern Cotton Warehouses: Ruth Ouel- lette and Marguerite DesChamps of the Southern Artists' and Il- lustrators' Union: Barbara Carrier and Leila Elwell, executive secretaries of the Miami Telephone Exchange: and Florence Courtemanche, confidential secretary to the president of the Ala- bama Silk Mills. All these reports state that business will have a bright future if this parley is successful, I might suggest that maybe these reports would bear some truth if the right methods for mediation were used. Now Alex Kat- ranis, the great prison reformer, has published a book on the squelching of strikes. His ideas might be used to advantage. Rich- ard Leonard, corporation lawyer, has likewise given his ideas on how such action can be avoided or cleared up. William Hall, fed- eral judge, has just handed down a decision on the New Yfork Clothing Mill strike which was in favor of the strikers. This brings to mind the strike that Lionel Guilbert, superintend- ent of the Alleghany Steel Mills, ended by using the technique of William Hodge, noted pacifist. 100 TUSITALA URSULAZ IVIADELINEC DAVID: We must not overlook the important element of public opinion, The government is planning to publish a book containing several letters which I have received regarding the strike situation. I would like to tell you of these various opinions I have received from people in every walk of life. For instance, from the Durand Beauty Salon, Incorporated, the owner, Louissette Durand, the chief cosmetician, Pauline Orbelewich, the director of reducing gymnastics, Sophie Augunas, the famous hair stylists, Wilda Beau- pre and Ramona Belzil, and the masseuse, Eva Zedalis, sent me a round robin describing in detail the extent to which their lives have been affected by the numerous strikes in their locality. Here is another from Arlene Gordon, social service worker in New York City, which describes the moral effects of unemployment. From the educational group, I received three interesting letters exposing the effects of strikes on the youth of the nation! The first, from Rosamond Urquhart, dean of women at the University of Chica- go, the second from Alice Nute, a home economics teacher, who is president of the Eastern Teachers' Association, the third from Mary Worsowicz, a commercial teacher who is in close touch with the difficulties facing the high school graduates. They are at your disposal if you care to read them. The trend of public opinion can be watched quite carefully through the newspapers also, I think. Genevieve Lessard, ace girl columnist for the New York Citizen's Telegraph, has written several excellent articles about this situation, and Dorothy Davis. economist from Columbia University, has hinted strongly in her column in the Daily Tribune that affairs need to be peaceably settled. Also, I wonder if you have seen that Vox Populi page in the Union Leader? Mary Hansberry, editor of that famous page, asked hundreds of people from every walk of life and of dif- ferent occupations to give their opinions on the labor situation. I can't remember now all the people whose opinions were printed, but I did jot down those of the more famous. Let's see. I have the paper right here. Just listen to this for an imposing list: Anna Sullivan, coloratura soprano from the Metropolitan Opera Company. who recently made her debut in the opera Carmeng Lucille Charron, head model for Saks, Fifth Avenueg Harriet Mandelson, fashion editor of I-Iarper's Bazaarg "Winnie" Graham, football coach of Princeton Universityg Andrea Papachristos, head nurse of the Los Angeles County Hospitalg Dr. Arthur Chimiklis, president of the American Medical Associatiohg Rita Ticehurst, figure skating queen who won the championship in the last Olym- pics: Marcelline Connor, dietitian on the staff of St. Mark's Gen- eral Hospital: lXfIary Pietuch, who writes the l'Advice to the Love- lorn" column in the Boston Herald: Alma Gendron, president of the American Hairdressers' Uniong and Evelyn Chevrette, confi- dential secretary to the Attorney General of the United States. They differ but little in stating that this strike wave can be settled by peaceful arbitration. Conditions must be changed either by strike or peaceful arbitra- tion. I hope you all had a chance to read the article in The American Magazine by Beatrice Lacoshus and Dorothy Jasper. eminent interior decorators, in which they say that capital does not TUSITALA 101 LEON: DAVID: LEON: URSULA: MADELINE: URSULA: MADELINEZ pay labor enough to decorate their homes and live properly. There were also articles by Mae Eckmarck, textile designer, and Katherine Barry, clothes buyer for Bergdoff-Goodman Company on the same problem. Then, too, a committee consisting of Shirley Nel- son, Naomi Rollins, and Jessie Meseak, the three home economists and dietitians for the Washington Medical Center, have reported in the last issue of Public Affairs that employees in large industries are not able to feed themselves as they should. They mention the speech of Justine Kirkwood of the Child Training Institute concerning the deplorable health of children in striking areas. And then there's the factor of radio. which plays a most important part in forming public opinion. The new station, ZOOP, which was built by that ultra-modern architect, Willard Lovejoy, for William Kibble and Eugene Tafe, general managers of the C. B, S., has been featuring many authorities on this situation. Hiawatha Blood, the program director, has recently hada forum at which many prominent people discussed our current problem. Among this group were Pearl Oliver, business librarian, Stanley Parzych, district manager of the A. and P. Stores, Rejeanne Levesque, head of the home economics department at Simmons College, and Percy Snow, editor of the Associated Press. The March of Time, di- rected by Henry Lapeza, and announced by James Penkofski, also carries a great deal of Weight. Last week's skit portrayed the strike throughout Irving Elbling's chain of restaurants. Have you heard-Ctelephone ringsj Hello-what's that-are you sure? Let's see, you say Steve Narkunas, player-manager of the Green Sox, and Edward Noel, player-manager of the Yellow Sox, just arrived with their teams? -Yes, we want tickets-we'll be right down. Will you pardon us a moment while we attend to some official business? fboys leavej My! That was short and sweet. We really should try to figure out some settlement of this labor question. Yes, we must. Have you seen Mrs. Harriman Birdley's new hat? Isn't it stunning? I know that her milliner is Miss Sophie Onoro- ski. I think I'll have to order some hats from her when I get back to Washington. Did I tell you that I had found a mar- velous new dress stylist, Miss Simone Salvail? You must visit her salon! Tell me, have you read that best-seller, Crepe Souls, by Helen Garrity? It was recommended to me by Anne Kozlow- ski, the superintendent of nurses at the Washington Memorial Hospital dedicated last week. Some people think that she used the experiences of that famous dance team of Lucille Boilard and Lucille Michaud, I haven't had time to read the book yet, but Lucille Cote, manager of the Detroit branch of the Macmillan Publishing Company, mentioned it when I was talking to her the other day. 102 TUSITALA URSULAZ MADELINE: URSULA: MADELINE: URSULA: MADELINE: URSULA: LEON: DAVID: LEON: URSULA: Yes, I was in Detroit last week, too. I met several people who said they knew you very well. Do you remember Elaine Har- wood, who conducts that nationwide Children's Radio Program, and Beatrice Soucy, personnel director of Macy's Detroit store? They sent you their regards. Oh, did you attend that conference at the Bradford Hotel? I was sorry I wasn't able to be there. I hear Mercedes Dionne and Bertha Lapin, President and Vice President of the National Air Hostesses' Union, conducted quite a jamboree. Juliette Dulude, dramatic coach of Smith College, told me all about it. Yes, the entertainment by Alice Kasper, famous monologuist, and Blanche Pendleton, harpist, was excellent. If you want entertainment, my dear, I wish you'd go to the Hotel Continental in Chicago some evening. Arlene Hargreaves, mis- tress of ceremonies and leader of her girls' orchestra, conducts quite a floor show. I always enjoy that little eccentric dancer, Beryl Short. But Ruth McQuesten's Harlem Night Club puts on an even bet- ter one. I agree she's pretty good. I do like that comedienne, Betty La- Plante, whom she has with her troupe. Marguerite Gautier, the blues singer, is with them, too, isn't she? Of course, for a different type of entertainment, you ought to go see Claire Perrault's new play, Carstair's Beneuolence. ' It's rec- ommended by everyone from Dexter Johnson, U. S. Army veter- inarian, to Jane Hurd, the 4-H directress for New Hampshire. Brina Yezerska, the dramatic critic, recommended it heartily. In- cidentally, when you're in New York you must go to the Art Museum and see the new collection of paintings by Francis Barry which have recently been added to the American Wing. They were purchased and presented to the Museum by Geraldine Cud- hea, the American Glamour Girl, who recently married the wealthy scion of the Wanderbilt family. I don't think I'll be able to re- visit the Museum for some time because I'm going to be very busy. Several delegations are to confer with me soon. Con- stance Bearor, Broadway star, heads the one representing the in-. terests of the American theater. Roland Charest, New York dairy man, Julius Juonis, farmer, and Otis Wardner, fruit grower, are representing the food producers. Claire Richards, the rising criminal lawyer, is coming to consult with me about juvenile de- linquency. CThe men re-enterj I'm sure glad we bought our tickets on time. At least now we are sure of getting in if we settle this affair in any reasonable amount of time. Time-Time-Time-that same old word! That's all I've been hearing since this started. , Gentlemen4-please desist. This is not the time for arguments. TUSITALA 103 LEON! DAVID: URSULA: LEON: MADELINE: I DAVID: Time-why, this has tied up business all over the world-why, Lester Paton, DuPont's representative in London, and Pauline Gauthier of the Hawaiian Pineapple Company, have been com- plaining that their respective industries will suffer terrible losses until the situation has been cleared. The United Fruit Company's foreign representatives, Richard Clark in Havana, Cuba, Richard Lund in Baranquilla, Columbia, and Oscar Richards at Colon. Panama, also report that they cannot get rid of the surplus banan- as until the markets reopen. If you will notice, Mr. Labombard, this time element has gradu- ally brought other men of various countries to take notice and ex- press their views. Norman Gidge, ambassador to Russia, is watch- ing with keen eyes the automotive strikes here. Dana MacClen- nen, Spanish Consul, is watching developments because Rebels are trying to get American Planes through the American Export Com- pany of which Robert Morin is head: and as a strike is on there. a civil war is being hindered in a foreign country. You say Am- erican Strikes-yet down in South Africa, where the American Mining Company has found a new mine, for which George Theo- dore, Alphonse Ermala, and Ernest Bibeau, engineers, are install- ing equipment, they have reported a strike brewing. Albert Carl- ing and Colby Hardy of the Australian Public Utilities Corpora- tion have let the strikers send representatives out to explain their wage demands. Yes, I understand that that is being done extensively. Just the other day, I received letters from Agnes Kosman and Marguerite Dunne, who usually lecture on cooking with electricity, sayingthat they are now touring Europe doing this same thing. The fact still remains that this latest weapon of Labor is a men- ace. Edwin Tanana and Hector Lavoie, eminent astrologists, predict that the world will be in a serious condition if these mod- ern ideas of labor persist. These ideas are not quite so modern as you may think. Mary Gegas, Anita Lowkis, and Margaret Gardner, prominent women archaeologists, have just published in the National Geographic Magazine, edited by Wanda Rotkiewicz, an article on their recent excavations in Asia Minor. One of their finds was a strange tab- let written in hieroglyphics, which when translated by Stella Pap- pademas, authority on ancient inscriptions, proved to be an ac- count of a strike which occurred when laborers refused to continue digging an irrigation ditch in 647 B.C. It shows that the idea is not so new. Although the theory is old, we still intend to revive and employ it to obtain our end. This method has been used in all types of institutions. It has been used by high school students, as Eliz- abeth Chandler, Department of Education in California, has stated. Leonard Fisher and Edward Lyszczas, horse breeders, have humor- ously said that they think their race horses are waging a sit down strike. I hope that their strike is successful, so that some of this terrible gambling may be stopped. Robert Demers and Stanley Ratof. Department of Justice Investigators, in an article in the 104 TUSITALA URSULA: LEON: DAVID: URSULA: Liberty Magazine, express a wish that criminals would stage a sit down strike so as to clean up some lawlessness. So you see. sit down strikes are effective and so ours will be. They certainly seem to be in Washington. Even some of the government departments have been affected. l had an informal chat with representatives of various striking branches last week. Among the group was Helen Russell, chief of staff in the chemical research laboratories of the Department of Commerce: Isabelle Stultz, a senior stenographer in the Department of the Interior: Germaine Theriault, of the Congressional Library: and Burton Urquhart, Certified Public Accountant of the Treasury Depart- ment. We came to an agreement regarding payment of back wages and they have since returned to their work. The conditions in this case are a little different. The strikers want more leisure time and higher wages. Merle Betts, treasurer of the Wearever Shoe Company, and Alfred Picard, treasurer of the American Woolen Company, report that the financial standing of their companies does not allow increase at present. We have a committee composed of Aldina Zalanskas, recreation director for women at Ohio State, Robert Bibeau, hobby manager of the New York Y. M. C. A., and Arthur Russell, collective bargaining agent for the Amalgamated Chemical Company, discussing the merits of leisure time and the methods of obtaining a plan favorable to both parties. Steps have been taken along these lines. Isabelle Bouch- er and Cecil Pinette, public health investigators, say that the Py- rex Glass Company managed by Albert Smith and Eugene Dion, have provided a recreation period under the able direction of Peter Szwabowich for the men and Mildred Tamulonis for the women. I am happy to hear this report. I am in hopes that this meeting may make an active start in the settlement of the particular strike at hand. In this letter from Elizabeth Wall and Rachel Boilard, business-secretaries for the Women's Textile Unions, they suggest that if mediation is successful. they would like Irene Freeman and Shirley Bernard, physical directors at Georgia State Women's Col- lege, to have supervision over the women's recreation periods. John Bourdon and Victor Juskevicus, strike representatives of the U. S. Steel Union, who are directing the strike there, have sent a report that Dale O'Connell and Wilfred Michaud, basketball and football coaches, respectively, at Purdue University, have offered their services for a time to get a recreation plan under way. That plant Cafeteria has recently employed Pearl Fair and Adriatic Uloth, dietitians, to plan the menu. The men will now be able to obtain well-balanced meals, and so keep physically well and maintain a higher standard of work. I've heard that the same thing is being accomplished at the Ben- dix Corporation by Gifford Colburn, world renowned chef, and Margaret Gallagher, president of the Housewives' Cooperative Un- ion. By the way, have any of you been following those amusing cartoons lampooning our treatment of the strike? I mean the ones by Spiridola Stergiou. TUSITALA 1 05 MADELINE: URSULA: MADELINE: LEON: DAVID: URSULA: MADELINE: No, I hadn't noticed them. Oh, speaking of improvements, Elsie Goodwin and Evelyn Holbrook, women architects, sent in to the Washington oflice a detailed description of their newest projects. It seems that they've been commissioned to construct recreation rooms in various factories. I didn't see the report, but Mary Ker- pluck, Under Secretary in my department, wrote me about it. Arlene Peacock and Helen Sawicki, landscape gardeners, are busy at present making plans for beautifying the grounds around three New York State factories. Landscape gardening! That reminds me that I am supposed to be in Garden City, New Jersey, in two hours, to arbitrate the strike of the Garden City Publishing Corporation. The president, Ray- mond Bowne, the foremen of the women's department, Georgia Gorman and Irene Robichaud, and the journalist, Rita Tanguay, make up the arbitration board. I rather think I'll have to be leaving soon. I had planned to be here a few weeks longer to dedicate the New- ton Museum. Muriel Willette, judge of federal district court, who has charge of affairs, asked me to preside at the dedication. I'm sorry to have to miss Jeanne Theriault and her troupe of comic ballet artists who are giving a performance at Pauline Melendy's Concert Theatre tonight, and also a lecture by Androniki Loula- kis and Nellie Klimas, Hollywood Screen Magazine reporters. Well, I suggest we adjourn this meeting, because I have to rush down to Dennis Sullivan's Night Spot to hear that latest queen of swing, Lorraine Cross, and before I go I should get some flowers at Clayton Oban's exclusive Flower Shop. Say-isn't tonight the special entertainment for tired business men? Yes it is-because Lucy Raby, Vera Gelazauskas, and Lu- cille Lampron, the Rainbow Room Dancers of New York, have been engaged to appear with the singer. Would you care to join us? Well-if all this be true-I should think I would. And you, Madeline- To take the stress of strikes off my mind, I, too, think that I'll go to watch some striking entertainment! 106 TUSITALA Class Oration g "THE WILL TO DO: THE SOUL TO DARE" "The will to do: the soul to dare"-how these words from Scott's Lady of the Lake seem to strike a hidden chord Within us, and inspire great thoughts in our minds. They are strong words, words that issue a challenge it will be well for us to remember, and to accept, as we go out into life. During the past four years we have lived a life centered chiefly about Nashua High School. Here we have spent many hours studying his- tory, English, algebra: here we have established many lasting friendships: here we have sought to cultivate our minds to a higher level of un- derstanding. But, four years have passed Y quickly, and tonight we are being graduated from Nashua High School. Another signifi- cant milestone in our life is being passed. To- morrow we will carry on our shoulders the burdens of manhood and of woman- hood. Life filled with joys and sorrows, dismal failures and brilliant suc- cesses, lies before us, Many of us have during our high school career instilled "the will to do" into our daily life until it has become an integral part of our characters. That is why some of us already stand out as leaders, while most of us are still in the rut of the commonplace. In applying our class motto to our lives, we are divided into three groups. By those who have accepted this philosophy school has been cherished, and they have reaped every possible benefit from it. By those who have not fully real- ized its potential power, school has been alternately interesting and monotonous. To those who have refused to accept the philosophy, school has proved a dis- tasteful task to be shirked at every turn. For those in the first group higher education is to be realized, and eventual- ly they will be leaders in their community, perhaps in the state and nation. The philosophy of a few of the second group will change, and they too will climb the ladder of success. Let us hope that the rest will not continue to live con- tent with the commonplace, lacking "the will to do: the soul to dare" great things. Tomorrow we enter a world not too willing to receive us. It is already, every year, leaving one-half million high school graduates unemployed. It is torn by political and industrial strife, war, petty jealousies, and dictatorial reigns. Do we wonder why "the will to do" should become an integral part of our characters as we enter a world offering so many obstacles tola happy and successful life? L!-C TUSITALA 107 Many of us have been trying to plan a life career. We are staggered as we list the possibilities, but do we at the same time realize our potential opportuni- ties? Many industries such as the automobile, radio, and aviation fields are still in a revolutionary stage. More established occupations are constantly seek- ing young men and women with new ideas. There is a dearth of well trained young men and women in the industrial and business worlds of today, or, if we feel independent, there is a constant demand for the opening of new doors. We should carefully inventory our own interests and abilities before we reach a decision. A "rags to riches" philosophy should be shunned. Hard Work, and a high character are the surest steps toward success. Books by Horatio Alger should not be the stimulus for rosy dreams. His heroes overcome obstacles and attain success too easily: in real life such easy success is rare. Turning away from ourselves, let us consider the ways in which "the will to do: the soul to dare" are necessary to us as the citizens of the United States. Our country needs men of strong will and daring souls. If we trace the his- tory of our country carefully, we shall find that courageous leaders moulded the vast and powerful nation we are today. When our forefathers drew up the "Declaration of Independence," they possessed the decision and daring to make this unprecedented move, and follow it through successfully. Again, in the settling of the west, men who were not easily routed, once a goal was before them, led the way. Today our nation stretches from coast to coast, and be- yond, a fitting memorial to these pioneers who possessed strong will and high courage. Today's pioneers are perhaps most notable in the fields of science and in- ventions. Such men as Edison, Ford, Lindbergh, and Byrd have led the world in their respective nelds, expressing in their lives the spirit of our motto. Today many Americans are living at such a pace they are losing sight of the need of will and daring in life. They do not want to take the time nor energy to carry through hard tasks or live up to high ideals in the face of what other people think of them. Here we see why individualism should again be- come part of our national character: certainly not the rugged individualism of old that made a man grasp all within his power at the expense of those less fortunate, but. rather an individualism that strengthens us to stand alone for that which is right, against the jeers of our fellowmen. Today in our own country, and in the world, we instinctively admire per- sons who possess "the will to do: the soul to dare." Whatever our attitude to- ward the political views of our President, we all admire the decisiveness with which he has overcome the handicaps of a dread disease, in the face of which many other men have given up. In the industrial field we honor men who are continually trying to better the conditions of the wage-earners. They are men possessed with a will: a will that is making them successful in the establishment of higher working stand- ards. In China, Madame Chiang Kai-Shek has instituted many new movements for the benefit of the oppressed. Better housing, education, sanitation, and woman suffgage are being sought because a woman possesses the determination, against almost insurmountable barriers, to enlighten her people. 108 TUSITALA We must use will and daring as the means of furthering not only our suc- cess as Americans, but, also, as a means of combating the existing evils of the world. Great problems such as war, crime and moral looseness confront our civilization. War is a world-wide threat. Men in times of war have all their will and daring aroused to iight. But, think how much better oil' the world would be if men worked with equal zeal and passion for peace. Let us as the next ruling generation of the World resolve that we will use all our power to promote the cause of peace. Our high school career is ended, and we are entering a life from which we expect great things. As we leave tonight and mull over these thoughts in our minds, let us recall the lives of famous men down through the years, Socrates, Caesar, Luther, Napoleon, Lincoln, and see what basic qualities dominated their lives. We will find with few exceptions that these are "the Will to do: the Soul to Dare." So let it be with us, and with this motto as our inspira- tion, let us strive for the success in life that rightfully should be ours. WILLIAM HALL. , Qllllb f 'L' Pai - -- Y gg V p 4 , .jj G TUSITALA 109 Valedictory EDUCATION: DO WE HAVE IT? If we compared the number of those who received a high school education a generation ago with the number of those who receive one today, we should find a vast increase. Within twenty years the enrollment of our local high school has increased from about four hundred students to nearly sixteen hundred. From these figures we learn that the students of today have an ever increasing desire for high school education. Many want it as a preparation for life: many want it as a foundation for college education. -But all must receive a good, well-rounded ed- ucation. At this time we may ask ourselves whether we graduates, who are about to set forth in various directions, have received a sat- isfactory education. In answering this ques- tion, let us consider education as composed of three things-knowledge, service, and character. From an anecdote concerning Abraham Lincoln we may draw a lesson per- taining to the field of education. One day when he was conversing with a friend, he was asked how long a man's legs should be. "A man's legs," said Lincoln in reply, "should be long enough to reach the ground." Just as one's legs should be long enough to perform their duty. so should one's education be far-reaching enough to accomplish success in life. Just as one's legs support one's body, so should one's education support both one's physical and mental well-being. Many of the greatest minds in the history of the world have attempted to denne "education" John Stuart Mill, the famous English philosopher, has defined education as "whatever we do for ourselves, and whatever is done for us by others, for the express purpose of bringing us somewhat nearer to the per- fection of our nature." Mill, in using the term nature, does not signify wheth- er one's knowledge or one's character should be perfected. Nor does he state that an education should prepare one for service to the world. From the early Greek philosopher Plato, we obtain a more complete conception of education. as that which "develops in the body and in the soul all the beauty and all the perfection of which they are capable." This conception of education coincides better with our own of today, for as Plato stressed perfection of body and soul. so do we today feel that an education is composed of knowledge, service, and character. There is a saying that 'Asome men succeed by what they know. some by what they do, and a few by what they are." Let us here agree that the possession of all three of the attributes-knowledge, service, and character- which constitute a complete education, assures success. 1 10 TUSITALA First, let us consider knowledge, the collection of facts propounded through all the ages by our great philosophers, our great writers, and our great statesmen. Since truths are based on facts, and knowledge is the accumulation of facts, with knowledge we are prepared to meet the truths of life. Knowledge, although de- rived- from the past experiences of others, also offers us a keener understanding and a greater appreciation of our own experiences, our own living. Now then, since knowledge should provide the foundation for life, is the knowledge which we have acquired under our modern schooling satisfactorily fulfilling its purpose? Under our present school system, a certain number of points is required for graduation. These points may in a few cases be ac- quired by completing courses in subjects which have little or no real value to one's future life. Sometimes we find that the blind desire to obtain the neces- sary units results in an evasion of the true essentials of a real education. However, our modern school system itself is realizing its own shortcom- ings. In the past, it has sometimes been guilty of regimentation. That is. students without any regard to their personal needs, were forced into a too narrow choice of courses and placed in classes to which they were ill adapted. To correct this fault, more and more schools are now adopting systems of edu- cational guidance for all students, whereby individual needs, capabilities, and inclinations are very seriously considered. The acquisition of knowledge alone does not comprise an education. The educated man must be able to put his knowledge to work: be must be able to express his knowledge in service. It is said in the Ethics of the Fathers that "not learning, but doing is the chief thing." Knowledge in itself is merely a personal possession: through service we give full expression to it, and we are able to render concrete benefits to all mankind. Such people as Thomas Edison, Madame Curie, John Haynes Holmes, Charles Edward Russell and Frank Kel- logg, in their respective fields, have rendered to the world great services-electrical conveniences, new cures, universal fellowship, liberal views on modern prob- lems, and eminent statesmanship. After service has been rendered, it becomes the actual realization of knowl- edge. At the same time, service also has added to our store of facts: for through the performance of it, we meet Experience, the most vivid of teachers. According to the Note Book of Elbert Hubbard, "character is the result of two things-mental attitude and the way we spend our time." With this statement before us, we may easily see that by acquiring knowledge, and by ex- periencing the realities of life through service, we mould character. By absorb- ing the wisdom of the ages, the idealism of the philosophers, the beauty of the poets, the truth of the artists, the knowledge of the scientists, and the realism of experience, we develop sterling qualities in character. It is naturally to be assumed that the acquisition of all these attributes makes for a more noble and fine character. The attainment of such a character is the main purpose of edu- cation. We must obtain knowledge, and experience service in order that we may build up our character--in order that we may finally be called educated. We graduates have already acquired the major part of our goal of a lib- eral education. During the past four years in high school we have received that basic knowledge with which we are to set out into life. This accumula- tion of facts provides the ground work for the rendering of service and the moulding of character. With this great possession, knowledge, we have con- fidence in spirit, we have the able preparation to meet life, we have "the will to do: the soul to dare." TUSITALA l l 1 Mr, Tracey and Members of the Board of Education: To you, we the Class of 1937 wish to express grateful appreciation for having provided us with the essentials necessary for the acquisition of knowl-- edge, the major part of our educational goal in life. Mr. Nesmith and Members of the Faculty: For your guidance during the past four years, for the knowledge you have given to us, we feel deeply indebted. ln you we have seen examples of knowl- edge put to service for our good. Surely those lessons you have imparted to us will be a beacon light to guide us in our future. Parents: Through all our lifetime we have found in you models for the character we hope to develop as years go on. It is with a genuine feeling of sentiment that We reflect on the many efforts and sacrifices that you have so generously lavished upon us. May our successes be your recompense. Classmates: Once again we are meeting in the hall of Nashua High, but this time to express our farewells. As we turn to the future. let us be securely anchored to a purpose strong and true. Our success will depend upon the three l-I's-- Head, Hand, and Heart--the development of a strong mind, a firm hand for service, and a kind heart toward all mankind. JOSEPH RUDNICK.
