Together as a whole:
We stand with eager faces turned
Our future to await.

When each shall meet his fate.

A touch of dignity:

A greater world to see.
We're starting on a great highway,
To try at l,ife's great Game,
Where each will travel different roads,
Which lead. we hope, to fameg
Where each will work with all his might.
To gain his own success,
And ne'er forget the school we left,
The school we've loved the best.
To some. this is the last of school,
The end of friendships fine:
To others, just another step.
On to that college line.
And some are glad that school is done,
Have waited for the day
When they can try, alone, their luck-
QAt least that's what they sayj.
But I think that in the hearts of all,
There's a tinge of deep regret,
A silent sadness in the air,
A great and unpaid debt-
A debt we owe to this dear school,
As at her feet we lay
Our grateful thanks, although we know
We never can repay.
And now we leave this school behind,
And bid our last adieu-
Our au revoir, auf Wiedersehen,
If it's all the same to you.
And this shall be my parting Word,
To all who will partake it,
"Always to praise our Nashua High,
And never to forsake it."

Since after graduation many of us will drift away from old friends and
classmates, a brief review of the class history seems to be in order.
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
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.
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
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
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.

The class of 1937 has established quite a remarkable record in all sports.
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-
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
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
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.

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-

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-
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.

TIME: Years ahead--an evening in June.
SCENE: The office of the President of the National Association of
Manufacturers. A mediation board meeting trying to
settle a strike and strikes in general.
Now listen here, Mr. Labombard. this strike will continue until
the demands of the S. O. S. are met.
Mr, Heald, as head of the S. O. S.. l appeal to you. Peter Sienkie-
wicz, owner of this airplane factory is under contract to turn out
planes designed by Bill Latvis for Robert l.esieur and Robert Be-
langer, Major Generals of the U. S. A. A. F. There are also the
demands of Ernest Bulger of the American Airlines, Howard Estes
of the United Airlines. and Art Noonan of the T. W. A.. and
these demands must be met. They all demand that new super-
airliner designed by Charles Holt and Victor Roy, This plane
has been sanctioned by Paul Wright. Department of Commerce
Inspector. and Frank Baniesevich, the shop foreman, had started
the construction of the plane when Joe Cullen one of the S. O. S.
lieutenants started this strike at the plant which has now caused a
general local strike.
Our professional agitators, Albert Lipnick. James Lindsay. and
Philip Banios. have been watching the operations in this particu-
lar corporation. They have reported that the metal plant fore-
man, Joe Matyoska. has been keeping Ermon Philbrick and Stan-
ley Mazeika working longer than the required time. Though
these two men are special plane mechanics, you cannot expect them
to overwork. So I thought it time to start something before
further similar abuses arise in other plants.
That's all very well, but Joseph Rudnick, our Corporation Law-
yer, has arranged to have the First Lady President, Ursula Harte,
and Madeline Papachristos, the Secretary of Labor, attend this
meeting in an attempt to settle this and other strikes. They should
be here any minute now.
Hello-yes-thank you. That was Sylvio Cote, head of West-
ern Union's Central Division, saying that Madame President and
the Secretary of Labor have arrived and are on their way here now.
CKnock on doorj
Here they are now.
Good evening, gentlemen. Sorry to have kept you waiting. I
had to attend a luncheon of the American Women's Athletic As-
sociation, of which Stephenie Falkowski is director. There were
speeches given by Gladys Cunningham, National Amateur Tennis
Champion, Eva Darling, organizer of the first professional wom-
en's baseball team, and that noted equestrienne. Jessie Coleman.
The toastmistress was Miss Victoria Dobrowolska, who recently
swam the English Channel. CStart for chairj Oh-no gentle-
men, don't bother. 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
Yes, and Wilfred Guy and Luther Geer, heads of the local air-
plane union, have been hurt by your men. When the ambulance.

Chief Detective, reported that Harold Clifford and members of his
troupe had also been injured. You know Clifford, the singer,
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
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
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!

How many are there? On the secretarial staff there are four

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

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
According to reports, the key industries in the United States today
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
But Ruth McQuesten's Harlem Night Club puts on an even bet-
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-

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

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.
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
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
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.

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-

Arlene Peacock and Helen Sawicki, landscape gardeners, are busy
at present making plans for beautifying the grounds around three
New York State factories.

ballet artists who are giving a performance at Pauline Melendy's

"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
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
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
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
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-
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.
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.

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
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."

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.
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.
