Shakespeare's memorable words may easily be applied to our four years of high school life, and our hopes and ambitions may well be interpreted as as- pirations towards a career on the stage. In September, 1935, a group of youthful and ambitious actors and ac- tresses applied for entrance into the Nashua High Little Theater. After sign- ing innumerable papers, we were finally admitted into this wonderful world. Little did we realize how insignificant we should appear before a more mature and experienced group of theatrical personages: however, we were Hnally given parts in the presentation of the play, "I Am Only a Freshman." Our partici- pation in this comedy of errors and tribulations brought forth howls of laugh- ter from the sophisticated and worldly group above us. After having lost our- selves among numberless properties, having bumped into the older and more magnificent performers, and having all but forgotten our lines when our cues were given, we wondered whether we should ever reach stardom. After a year of hard work in learning the basic rules of this theatre, we were finally given a two-months' vacation, not because we had done anything outstanding, but because our play, like most Broadway plays, closed during the summer heat. After a joyous vacation, we returned to our Little Theatre to take part in bigger and better productions. We now believed we were almost veteran actors. Poor, disillusioned sophomores! Our joys were quickly dispelled, for the juniors and seniors soon made their presence known, and we were compelled to take minor parts in the presentation of the extravaganza, "Cheer Up, Sopho- more." Even though our parts were of little significance, we were slowly grow- ing wiser. Day after day, new facts were planted in our minds. And then, we were again given a two-months' vacation, which we tried to use to advan- tage. Upon our return, we were transferred to the Nashua High Big Theatre on Elm Street, which offered us bigger and better opportunities. Outstanding were the radio system for voice testing, the modern gym for those interested in calis- thenics, the luxurious library for quiet study and solitary reading, and most beautiful of all, the Vast auditorium with its magnificent stage equipment. Who could but succeed under such marvelous conditions? This change came at a very opportune moment, for we were now ready to emerge as distinct per- sonalities. During the early part of the year, four members of our cast were chosen for top billing in the play, l'Jolly Juniors." The leading man was John Navickas: the leading lady, Cleopatra Stylianos. They were very ably assisted by John Masten and Ruth Goodwin, whose performances also reflected I credit on themselves. At about this time, class rings were bought and worn, which easily identified us from those who had minor. less important roles. On May 5 we presented "Junior Prom." Many were the ejaculations of surprise and merriment over this gay masque. A grand entrance was made by the four leading characters, followed by the remainder of the large cast, all in splendid makeup and costume. Our audience was composed chiefly of the teach- ing or directing staff, parents, and theatrical friends. When the curtain rang down, we knew that we had at last found our places in the world of footlights. After a much-needed rest from our long and successful run, we returned to continue our career on the stage, In the production, "Seniors At Last." we, in turn, could look down on those who had minor parts. Four of our fellow members were elected to the leading roles. Frank Richardson, the leading man, and Lorraine Sherman, the leading lady, gave excellent performances, ably sup- ported by Herbert Miller and Lucille Grandmaison. On December 16, we presented the successful Broadway hit, "Stage Door," the most important and most difficult play we had ever attempted. At about this time nearly every senior realized that the zenith of his career was quickly approaching. Throughout this last year our deeds and misdeeds were printed in that theatrical review, The Tattler, of which Mabel Hamilton was the editor-in- chief. Others on the staff were Robert O'Clair, Natalie Gidge, Lois Truax. Andrea Blake, Virginia Trainovich, ,Robert Evans, Adrienne Dumaine, Carlton Coffin, john Masten, Evelyn Lesieur, Edward Bonnette, James Good, Stanley Bolster and Mildred Wheeler. Early in the spring, four young and energetic stars were chosen as com- pilers of our stage directory, The Tusitala. C. Carlton Coffin was elected editor-in-chief, while the associate editors were Beatrice Fraser, Joan Hall, and William Sullivan. A short while after this, we posed for individual stills to be used for personal publicity in the directory. Who knows? Perhaps some day some of our actors will be famous, and their class pictures be treasured as mementos. Early in April came the performance of "The Upper Fourth," giving due honor to ninety erstwhile struggling actors and actresses, who had been earnest in their attempt to make progress in the theatrical world. Natalie Gidge won the role of our leading lady on the basis of her wonderful performances during the entire four years. The role of class orator went to Frank Richardson, while Creighton Mulvanity and Alfred Maurice played the parts of prophets, with Clara Dignam and Beatrice Fraser impersonating the prophetesses. On May ll, the stage was taken over by a group of seniors who spoke extemporaneously in competition for the Noyes Medal. On June 7, certain in- dustrious theatrical students wrote essays in competition for the Dodge Prize. Early in June, a group picture was taken of all the actors who, for the past four years, had been working side by side in the difhcult world of the theatre. And then, late in June, came the happiest and most confused week of our existence. Amid great rushing and excitement came three very important per- formances-"Senior Prom," "Class Night," and, at long last, the drama of "Graduation" Amid plaudits and congratulations we now sorrowfully bid adieu to our many theatrical friends and directors, and thus we depart from the "Last scene of all That ends this strange, eventful history." GABRIELLE 'TROTTIER. In Athletics On many a sunny afternoon. we saw our athletic teams at their best, fighting for old Nashua High. Always the class of '39 took a great part. Urged played minds, on by the school band and the cheers from the spectators, our boys their best. Memories of their skill and team work still linger in our never to be forgotten, always to be treasured. the fall of '35, our class as mere freshmen had no representatives on either the Football team or the Cross Country team, leaving the field to more experienced players as might be expected. When the Basketball season rolled around our class was still minus any players who made the Hrst string, though we were already developing future stars. Baseball and Track, however, brought out two of our ablest athletes. "Lefty" Daukas gave his support at first base, and "Shotput" Styrna heaved the weights and ran a fast quarter. Styrna was the only one to receive a letter. But our accomplishments in freshman year foretold that we should soon have athletes of a greater calibre. In the fall of 1936, we as sophomores were largely represented on the Football Team and the Cross Country Team. 'ALefty" Daukas earned a sub- stitute center position, and other sophomore members on the squad were "Andy" Palanski, "Hank" Doughty, A'Porky" Rolfe, A'Chris" Rellas, Julius Zedalis, and "Al" Maurice. In Cross-Country the stars on the team were the sophomores. "Ronnie" Short and "Speed" McMurray always led the Royal Blue Harriers. Other members on the team were "Slick" Hysette, 'AC1ene" Laliberte, "Shotput" Styrna, "Gussy" Martin, "Herby" Miller, and "Pauly" Messier. "Speed" McMurray was elected to lead the Royal Blue Harriers for the following year. No members from our class were on the Basketball Team that year. The Baseball and Track Teams, that spring, however, were largely composed of athletes from our class. In Baseball. "Lefty" Daukas was holding down first base. "Shotput" Styrna played in rightiieldg "Bob" Connors, on second base: "Hank" Doughty was a substitute catcher, and 'lAndy" Palanski a sub- stitute pitcher. Daukas, Connors, Styrna, and Palanski were the only lettermen. In Track our class had a good sophomore year. It was mostly through the efforts of the class of '39, that the team came within two points of winning the State Championship at the University of New Hampshire lnterscholastics at Durham, "Shotput" Styrna was the outstanding man in the hammer throw and the javelin throw, and 'lSpeed" McMurray received little competition in the mile run and the 880-yard dash. "Slick" Hysette in the dashes, "C1ussy" Martin in the 440-yard dash, "Red" Seaman in the 880-yard dash, and "Ronnie" Short in the mile were the other members of the squad. "Shotput" Styrna and "Speed" McMurray were the only Track lettermen from our class. In golf "Bill" Sullivan, "Kelly" Coffin, and "Jerry" Clifford showed their line calibre by leading the team to the State Golf Championship at Frank- lin. "Bill" Sullivan was elected to lead the team the following spring. In our junior year our class really went to town. The Football Team that year had a new stadium to compete in, and the boys from our class really fitted in with their new surroundings. With "Lefty" Daukas holding down the center berth, "Chris" Rellas and "Frankie" Wiljeta on the ends, "Jerry" Gallant, 'iJohnny" Masten, "Pauly" Gagnon, and "Hank" Doughty in the line, and "Andy" Palanski and "Ray" Barron in the backfleld, our class felt proud of itself. As the other members of the team were experienced veterans this was quite an honor. N. H. S. had a good season, thanks to the efforts of the boys from the class of '39. "Lefty" Daukas, the most experienced member of the team, was chosen by the other members to lead the Royal Blues the following fall. The Cross-Country Team had a good year, too. Led by Captain "Speed" McMurray, the team turned back quite a few strong teams from over the state. Other members of the team from our class were "Vitie" Corosa, "Al" Beaudry, l'Pauly" Messier, l'Jimmy" Booth, "Ronnie" Short, "C1ussy" Martin, "Red" Seaman and "Slick" Hysette. Corosa, Short, and McMurray were the only lettermen. "Speed" McMurray was reelected to lead the team in his senior year. When basketball was called out, our class responded by producing such stars as "Ray" Chantal, "Larky" Apostolica, "Chris" Rellas, "Frankie" Wil- jeta, and "Lefty" Daukas. The boys played wonderful basketball, and through their efforts the team was among the eight to compete at Durham. They were eliminated in the lirst game by Exeter High. "Chris" Rellas, a stalwart of the team, was elected to captain the squad in his senior year. As spring rolled around, Coach Webster W. White noticed that the boys were getting uneasy and restless: so he thought that the only solution was to call out Track, and he was right. From our class came 'iShotput" Styrna, the greatest trackman Nashua has had for years. His achievements speak for themselves. Styrna, who was an able performer on the baseball diamond, had given up baseball for track. Also i'Speed" McMurray was out to clean them up in the mile run and the 880-yard dash. He just about did it in the mile. Other members who helped the team along wonderfully were "C1ussy" Martin, "Red" Seaman, "Ronnie" Short, "Slick" Hysette, "Doc" Stamelos, and "Fitz" Fitzgerald. The team had its best season in years. It lost the State Champion- ship at Durham to Portsmouth by one point. The year before they had lost to Laconia by two points. It is interesting to note that the team was com- posed mostly of junior stars because Nashua had three men on the All-State Track Team, two juniors, Styrna in the hammer and javelin events and Mc- Murray in the mile run. The other man was a senior. They received as a token of their achievements, gold medals, and a miniature golden track shoe, with inscriptions on them. Both juniors hope to be on the All-State team in their senior year and the prospects are very bright for them. "Shotput" Styrna was elected by his teammates to lead the Royal Blue Trackmen in his senior year. Baseball had its own' stars, too, "Lefty" Daukas, the heavy hitting first baseman, "Andy" Palanski, pitcher, and "Porky" Rolfe, catcher. Other mem- bers were "Hank" Doughty, sub catcher, "Bob" Connor, second baseman, "Larky" Apostolica, rightfielder. The newly formed State Baseball Tourna- ment was held in Nashua. Our team defeated all other teams in the state to win the state title. The boys received as a token of their performance a minia- ture golden baseball. "Lefty" Daukas won individual slugging honors and received a bat autographed by Lou Gehrig. "Andy" Palanski was elected cap- tain for the following year. The Golf team also had a good junior year. Led by their able captain, "Bill" Sullivan, they won the state golf title. The other members of the team were "Kelly" Coffin and "Jerry" Clifford, A'Kelly" Coffin was elected to lead the Royal Blue Ciolf Team in his senior year and as he is an experienced play- er, the team, with the help of Sullivan and Clifford,ought to go places. ln- cidentally "Sully" won the State Caddy Championship at Manchester. Now We approach our senior year. When Coach Peter Chesnulevich called out football, the team led by Captain "Lefty" Daukas responded, The team was composed mostly of seniors, "Johnny" Masten, "Mooney" Aksten, "Frankie" Wiljeta, "Porky" Rolfe, "Andy" Palanski, l'Bob" Connor, "Hank" Doughty, "Hawkeye" Zedalis, "Jerry" Gallant, "Ray" Barron, l'Herby" Mil- ler, and "Bill" Sullivan. The team had a fair season and its greatest thrill was the turning back of Lowell, 20-13. Palanski, Rolfe, and Daukas were out- standing in the game. As this is their last year at high school football, we wish them good luck on college teams or other intra-mural teams. Rolfe was the only member of the team to make the All-State Football team. The Cross Country team, led by Captain "Speed" McMurray, had a good final season, defeating some of the strongest teams in the state. The other members of the team were "Al" Beaudry, 'lBob" Morrison, "Red" Seaman, "Ronnie", Short, and Alonzo Wolkowski. In the State Championships they placed fourth in a large field of twenty-six schools. This is a good record, as the boys were handicapped in the beginning of the season on account of not having a course to practice on. The hurricane had completely ruined their former course. The Basketball team led by Captain "Chris" Rellas had an up-and-down season. They Went to Durham in the State Tournament but were eliminated in their first game. The varsity was made up of all seniors, "Nick" Floras, "Ray" Chantal, "Hutch" Hutchins, "Larky" Apostolica, A'Lefty" Daukas, and "Chris" Rellas, Captain. Now that the Basketball season is over, it will not be very long before Track, Baseball, and Ciolf are called out. The class of '39 wishes the senior members of these teams a successful and happy year. We hope and trust that they will leave behind them an athletic record to be envied by all other classes. We also are thankful to Coach Peter Chesnulevich and Coach Webster W. White and the managers of the different athletic teams for their efforts in help- ing us along in athletics. We also thank Mr. Cheney Lawrence. He has tre- mendously helped the class of '39 along in athletics by his tireless eHorts. With- out his help our class would never have achieved such heights in athletics. We are indebted to Mr. Lawrence and give him our best wishes. HOMER MCMURRAY. i939 LETTER MEN Dramatics SENIOR PLAY CAST THE SENIOR PLAY The last strains of the orchestra lingered faintly. The lights were dimmed, and the curtains parted. lt was the night of December 16, 1938, and the class of 1939 was about to present that well-known stage and screen hit, Eerber and Kaufmans Stage Door. lt was a story of the life of stage girls, living in a boarding house called the Eootlights Club in New York. Terry Randall, played by Gabrielle Trot- tier, was given the opportunity to choose between a stage or a screen career. She had not yet been very much of a success on the stage, but could probably be a success in Hollywood if she would sign a contract and go West as Jean Maitland, played by Beatrice Eraser, did. Terry chose to stay in New York in hopes of getting a part in some big play, even if it meant working in bar- gain basements while she was waiting for that opportunity. Then finally when her big chance did come at midnight one night, she failed. ln this scene Gabrielle especially demonstrated the excellent acting which was apparent throughout her performance. Among those enlivening the Eootlights Club were Irene Eortier as Olga, a Russian concert pianist forced to earn her living playing for chorus girls: Julia Nadzeika as Bernice Niemeyer, who believed she could get parts by writ- ing letters: Adrienne Morse as Susan Paige, a typical dramatic school student: Natalie Gidge as Mary McCune llaittle Maryj and Rita Pombrio as Mary Harper CBig Maryy, two girls respectively very tall and very short: Claire Shea, as Ann Braddock, the prim, disapproving member of the club: and Doro- thy Lockhart, as Linda Shaw, the butterfly. Excellent performances were given by both Julia Belowski, as Kaye Ham- ilton, who because she was worried over financial affairs and family matters committed suicide, and Ruth Dugan, as Pat Devine, a nightclub dancer. Mattie, the maid, and Erank, the houseman, played by Esther Caras and James Booth, drew many laughs from the audience: while Madeleine Vauclain, played by Adrienne Dumaine: Louise Mitchell, played by Lorraine Sherman: Kendall Adams, played by Betty Carlson: and Mrs. Orcutt, the matron of the club, played by Virginia Trainovich, helped to provide character contrasts. Mary Baublis, as Judith Canfield, the disillusioned member of the club, fairly stopped the show every time she opened her mouth to make a cynical or sarcastic re- mark, and Ruth Goodwin, as Bobby Melrose, a southern belle, did an out- standing piece of work. Tony Gillette and Ellen Fenwick, two newcomers to the club, were impersonated by Rita Demers and Joan Hall. David Kingsley, a Hollywood picture man, played maturely by Stanley Bolster, and Keith Burgess. an ambitious playwright, Kimon Vasiliou, were the leading male characters of the play. They were assisted by Sam Hastings, played by Howard Porter: Jimmy Devereaux, played by Roger Jones: Dr. Randall, Terry's father, played by Lawrence Draper: Larry Westcott, a pub- licity man from Hollywood, played by Carl Cudhea: and his assistant Billy, Everett Johnson, Jr. Robert O'Clair and James Shortell, as Lou Milhauser and Fred Powell, two lumber men from the West, caused much merriment in their unsuccessful attempts to make a second date with two of the club girls. The part of Adolph Gretzl, president of a moving picture company, which was to have been played by Gaston Gaucher, was very ably portrayed by Mr. Fred Goodwin, who kindly consented to take the part at the last min- ute because of Gaucher's illness. Hence 1939 can boast of a Senior Play the cast of which contained father and daughter. The play was a great success through both the efforts of the cast and the excellent coaching of Miss Elizabeth Cornell. The property committee, headed by Betty Smith and Eleanor Caswell as co-chairmen, deserves a great deal of credit for the work they did, as do the costume committee with Anna- belle Spence as chairman, and the stage committee with Harlan Linscott as chairman. The beautiful sets of the play deserve special attention. Music was furnished by the High School Orchestra under the direction of Mr. Elmer Wilson. Many members of the faculty also toiled hard on various committees. The play was a success not only in the way of amusement and enter- tainment, but a financial success as well, since it played to one of the largest Senior Play audiences on record. Lois TRUAX. DRAMATICS CLUB Fostering the love of dramatics, as it has for several years, the Dramatics Club, under the presidency of Ruth Goodwin, continued to be the largest club in school during our senior year. At the assembly on March 3 the club under the excellent coaching of Miss Mabel Noyes presented Booth Tarkington's hil- arious play, 'iThe Trysting Place." Seniors in the cast were Stanley Bolster, Robert O'Clair, Lois Truax, Harold Porter, Ruth Dugan, and Irene Fortier. Numerous other seniors have participated in the afternoon programs of the club. ' CAST "CROSSING BRIDGES" "CROSSING BRIDGES" On March 28, 1939, Beatrice Fraser's original play, "Crossing Bridges," winner in the local contest, was presented at the school assembly. The cast for the delightful domestic comedy was as follows: Ethel Shaw, Adrienne Dumaine: Tom Shaw, Kimon Vasiliou: Martha Hines, Julia Nadzeika: Mr. Hines, Law- rence Draper: Constance Hines, Ruth Goodwin: Teddy Hines, Howard Porter: Carl Blackburn, Carl Cudhea. "Bea's" play was thereupon entered in the contest sponsored by the State Department of Education and chosen by the judges as one of the four out of twenty or more for final competition at Laconia, May 5, 1939. As Lawrence Draper and Kimon Vasiliou were unable to make the trip, in this second per- formance Tom Shaw was played by Stanley Balster, the part of Mr. Hines, by Carl Cudhea and that of Carl Blackburn by Austin Clement. At this presentation "Crossing Bridges" received the unanimous vote of the judges, bringing to Nashua first ranking among the larger high schools in the eighth New Hampshire Original Play Contest. 8 EJ I eau. meas- We, the class of 1939, who graduate after the class of 1938 and before the class of 1940, in order not to leave intestate, make this will, which we hope will not be declared unconstitutional, and demand that it shall be put into execution on the 22nd day of June, the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and thirty-nine, and name Dr. COkenkoholmD Sharpe, D.M.D., C.C.D., R.F.D., and L.L.D., as our sole executor.

Neverglades, Ela.-Arrived here today to meet Bea- trice Eraser. Saw Doris Keene, wife of Count de-Something-or-Other at New Year's party at the Hotel Swank, run by Celia Gordon. January 2. Saw Robert Coy and Earl Damon. representatives of Ye Olde Eur Company. Said business wasn't so good down here. January 3. Leaving in five minutes for World's Fair with Bea-she's the barker-in-chief of Marguerite Moran's Six Ring Circus. Am now aboard The Nashuana. Victor Aksten's a swell pilot-so's his chief mechanic, Roland Bonenfant. Like the stewardesses, Ruth Annis and Betty Cheshire, very much. January 4. Hudson, N. H. Fair is wonderfull Helen McQuade, Shir- ley Lund, and Rita Seaman, snake charmers, are great! Julia Lapin's booth, "Advice on Affairs of the Heart," is about the most popular attraction-en- joyed Miss Lapin a lot. Understand there has been quite a fight for business between the Caviar Boothe, run by Eleanor Caswell, and the Eair's one and only Hot Dog Stand, owned by Shirley Page and Agnes Hovagimian. Saw Mildred Wheeler receive cup for her barkless dog, and Nellie Yukano receiving duplicate for her gruntless pigj January 5. Met Lillian Moore, inventor of invisible ear tiebacks for men, Also met Lucille Barrette, inventor of steam-heated overshoes. Eair has many thrills, but greatest thrill of all is watching Virginia Morey and Gabrielle Beaulieu wash the windows of skyscrapers. Leaving for London at 8:17 tomorrow. January 8. London, Painted during auto race between speed kings Robert Evans and Frederick Andrews. Both altogether too reckless to suit me. January l l. Julia Belowski gave grand performance as a vixen in Lillian Balcom's play, "The Bad Earth." January 12. Old acquaintance of mine, Louise Hammond, who became an English citizen about eight years ago, was elected to House of Commons to- day. It's fun knowing famous people! January 13. Enjoyed visit to Nada Tibbetts' "School for Charm." Watched her two best models, Norman Borghi and Andrea Blake, pose for a magazine cover. it January 14. Only one in audience to laugh at "funny" vaudeville acts of two Americans, Marjorie Farwell and Sylvia Dickstein-was very much embarrassed, but someone has to appreciate jokes here-the English certainly don't. Must leave here tonight-had grand week. January 15. Paris. Tried to see Virginia Cardin, whom I knew in High School, but her secretary said she was in conference with Theresa 1-ludon and Florette Bernier, other dress designers. Wait until 1'm famous! l'll be too busy to see her! January 16. Glimpsed two American movie stars, Doris Clarry and Cornelia Burnham, at opening night of Mabel Hamilton's opera, "A Worm on a Bar of Soap." Awfully boring-and I don't mean the worm. January 17. Berlin. Haven't seen Hitler, but have seen Evelyn Brown and Blanche Fedesovich in "Mrs. Hitler" contest. January 18. Got caught in midst of mob shooting stones at Millard Berry, chief of the "Anti Spinach Eaters," and his leaders, Warren Virchow, Al- bert Kuchinski, and Donald Foss. Among reporters brave enough to snap pic- tures were Hazel Brooks, Lillian Baxter, and Pearl Raby. January 19. Vienna. Worth coming here to see Barbara Montgomery and Marshall Tebbetts showing the Viennese how to do a Viennese waltz. January 20. St. Moritz. Had wonderful trip through mountains, but am completely exhausted. , January 21. Just wasn't born a skier. Have tried to learn from such famous instructors as Mazel Fuller, Genevieve Alexopoulos, and Laura Car- din, but it's no go! 1 still have to marvel at Alonzo Wolkowski's skiing- can easily see why he's world champ. January 22. Geneva. League of Nations far more interesting than try- ing to ski. Heard Agnes Lee and Jane Steele speak on reason for retaining league-very convincing arguments. January 23. Petrograd, Russia. Watched Baranova, Premiere Dan- seuse of the Russian Ballet, rehearse. The three famous critics, Martha Lee, Victoria Tamposi, and Erna Bauer, claim she'l1 be as good as Ruth Dugan or Mary Hurley if she studies hard enough-guess they're right. January 24. Funinski, Russia. Talked with Julia Putis and Bernice Kozlowsky, two wives of the dictator, Constantine Pialtous: both lived in America once, but have forgotten the English language. Betty Smith and Rita Sughrue were their interpreters. January 25. Song-Song, China. Katherine Harwood says she has the wrath of all the Chinese men on her head for inducing some of the Chinese women to have permanents. 1 thought it strange that some of the Chinese women in this vicinity had curly hair. January 25. Bumped into Claire Shea and Albertine Phaneuf, agents for Rogers' Silverware, trying to persuade the Chinese to use silverware instead of chopsticks. Poor Merton Caswell! Saw him trying to teach the natives Chinese Checkers-don't blame him for giving it up as a bad job. January 26. Tokio, Japan. Was introduced to Ruth King, first wom- an Jiu-Jitsuist, who gave a wonderful exhibition here today. Also introduced to her trainer, Anna Savage. January 30. Puzzleooza, Africa. Had rather tiresome trip from Japan, but am finding plenty here to interest me. Am leaving tomorrow on expedi- tion through jungle with Explorer Carlton Coffin. January 31. Wealthy Anthony Dublow was pointed out to me today- seems strange that he made his money selling "gold" rings from the American "Five and Tens" to the savages for their noses. February 8. Got back from thrilling expedition today. Watched Lois Truax give tom-tom lessons, and Greta Porter and Barbara Davis teach war dances-very interesting. Came across scientist Jeannette Doucet in the heart of the jungle, trying to make tender hamburgers out of monkey meat. February 9. Two Americans, Ann Lafazani and Julia Koadolas, are al- most in tears because in the five days they've been here, they haven't found one person interested in their wild animal exhibition. I didn't tell them, because I thought they'd find out soon enough, that the people around here see the creatures every day of their lives. Hate to think of long trip to Brazil, starting tomorrow. February 16. Nutz, Brazil. Not half so interesting as Africa-jungle seems like imitation. Amusing posters in jungle by Alice O'Brien, Teresa Beli- veau, and Helen Bernikowicz advertising the "Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals." February 17. New fad started by Kathleen Landry and Rita Anctil very amusing. They use tame crocodiles for transportation. February 18. Saw fad carried further today. Veronica Baranowski, Bessie Slattery, and Virginia Tranovich all had their crocodiles painted to match their costumes. February 19. Ruth Johnson and Edward Bonnette seem very awkward while learning native dances for their next picture, "Shake and Wiggle." February 20. More experimenting-Yolande Faucher and Annis Wilson still trying to find something to feed lambs so they'll grow colored wool. February 21. Have had great fun gallivanting around, but am heading for good old U. S. A. tomorrow, for "Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home." CLARA DIGNAM. PART II Place: Festival of Saturn, 1949 World's Fair at the cosmopolitan city of Hudson, New Hampshire. At this fair there is a new invention at the R. C. A. exhibit called the BIOPHONE. This new invention tells the present profession of a person. One needs only to deposit in a special slot a metal plate with the individual's name on it and the operator receives an oral response from a concealed loud speaker.

PART III I'm a traveling salesman. Now, that isn't really as funny as it sounds. I represent the Institute of Snooping Opinions which is managed by Paul Cor- mier. I travel all over these parts doing nothing-or practically nothing-but asking questions. You may not believe it, but that is dangerous business. When I asked Stan Bolster. Public Enemy No. 1, whether or not he had paid his income tax, Everett Johnson and Howard Porter, his red-headed hatchet men, courteously escorted me out of town in a Solls Soyce, a make which is manufactured, incidentally, by The Rita Burns and Lucille Caron Company. By the time I stopped running-oh, I mean the next place I found myself in was the big metropolis of Hudson. I stopped at Farmer Gus C1aucher's house on the outskirts of the town to ask him what he thought of the younger generation. As he opened his mouth with a very determined expressionon his face, his wife, whose name used to be Mary Baublis, told him to hold his tongue. Mary Viens, the housekeeper, kept on mopping the floor without paying any attention to what was going on. Since there was nothing doing here, not even a good argument, I hitched a ride with Clifford Spencer, the hired man, who was going to see his girl, Marjorie Kirkorian. Learning that the Laura Beaulieu and Eunice Boutilier circus was in town, I went. At the side show tent Robert Krym, a liashy barker, was inviting the public to witness the daring feats of the snake charmer, Betty Carlson, while Anne Travers was demonstrating free of charge her ability at sword swallow- ing and fire eating. I bought tickets for the big tent from Ernestine Kulas, a wise-cracking blond, and proceeded to do my best in making a pest of myself around the performers. Clara Dignam, the circus queen, politely ignored me, while Natalie Gidge, of the Flying Ciidgies, told me that "C1lash Gordon" by Dena Panagoustas was her favorite comic strip character. I saw the big cow- boy star of the show, Norman Fortier, with his famous horse, Susabelle. Ac- companying him in his troupe were three handsome cowgirls, Effie Katsoupis, Lucille Ouellette, and Rachel Vaillancourt. I didn't meet Jean Rothenberg, the lion tamer, because she was in the hospital after a tussle with Leo the Fierce-Hearted. However, her assistant, Jacqueline Loranger, put the cats through their routine. After witnessing the afternoon performance, I walked down the main street of the town trying to find a place to eat. I finally 'went in to Ma's Home Cooking Restaurant, managed by Lillian Burque, where Anita Hurst waited on me. As the radio was on, I listened to Florence Hayward's broadcast of the latest news, which consisted mainly of the fact that Dictator Robert O'Clair of Ciabland, the country of the Amazons, had been assassinated by revolution- ists led by Julia Nadzeika. It was expected that Commander General Roy Rigney of the Non-Existent Defense Forces of Land and Sea would succeed him in trying to subdue the rebel females. The following program signed on with the familiar word "Cheerio." It was Maestro Bernie Pastor and All His Pretty Pals, including the Lockhart Twins, mainly Dot and Lucille, masters of double talkg Martha Adams, song stylist: and that slapstick comic A'Sully," less well- known as William Sullivan. By this time I had given up trying to cut my leather steak, so I called for the cook, Joan Hall, to find out lgnw in the world she ever thought she could cook, She replied that she never thought, so that was that. After supper, I walked around town in order to kill time while waiting for the night plane to New York. At the local theatre, Lucille Grandmaison's latest picture, "Siren of the Nile," was playing. As the ritzy box oflice girl, Leona Ermala, told me, 'AIt's simply swell." However, I didn't go in. I strolled by Bessie Ivalis' Kiddie Shoppe: ran by Howard ClifIord's Sea-Food Market: and lingered in front of John Molloy's Beauty Salon, before reaching the airport. There I talked with Beverly Blake, the radio operator, who was very much worried over the fact that the plane was a few minutes late. The plane finally did arrive, and I hopped in. The pilot of the big trans- port plane, Irene Fortier, was a famous war ace of the last Atmospheric-Oceanic War. The cute stewardess, Norma Benjamin, busied herself trying to make the passengers comfortable. I recognized several of my fellow travelers. Of course, everyone knew Secretary of Weather Conditions, Rita Demers, who was on her wav to Washington to confer with the President on whether or not the atmospheric conditions were proper to a fireside chat at this time. I visited a few minutes with Adrienne Dumaine, the President of the Society for Pre- vention of Cruelty to Jitterbugs and Flat Foot Flooges. On her way to New York also was Gabrielle Trottier, famous Broadway producer of magnificent extravaganzas, to judge a contest intended to try to pick Mr. America. Sit- ting across the aisle from me was that famous lecturer and professor on Marital Problems, Ruth Goodwin: while directly in front of me was Anne Ratof, a housewife who had won a round trip to New York with all expenses paid for an essay written on "How Flaky Mild Soap Keeps Me from Having Dishwater Hands." This contest was sponsored by the Katharine Dalaberas Cosmetic Company. When I arrived in New York, I went to my hotel in a taxi operated by Michael Jankowski. Sitting in the lobby as I came in was Irene Charpentier, the famous radio comedienne, talking to her dynamic press agent, Lawrence Draper. Virginia Koltsidas and Marion Winslow, the two elevator girls, were so intensely interested in what Janice Shepard, the switchboard operator, had done the night before, that I did not have the heart to disturb them. There- fore I walked up to my third story room with Ernestine Hodge, the bellgirl, carrying my bags. As soon as I was alone, I telephoned Esther "Winchell" Caras to get all the latest news around town. Well, it seemed as though Queen Cleopatra Sty- lianos of the Land of Pharoahs had arrived this morning on a visit to the United States with her two nieces, the Princesses Alexandria Curtis and Xanthy Coutsonikas: also that Playwright Virginia Leaver's play, "Sit Tight and Hold On," was a huge success, with Theresa Lafleur in the leading role. I asked her what was a good place to spend an evening and she recommended Richard Lavoie's Ultra-Ultra night club. This club had a sensational new floor show featuring Leonard Rolfe, who did a ballet dance on his hands while giving a lecture on football! Deciding to do some night-clubbing, I put on my new evening gown, de- signed especially for me by that exclusive Paris designer, Evelyn Lesieur. Then, I called The Escort Bureau for Lonely Females in order to get myself an escort for the evening. I was very lucky to secure the services of the proprietor him- self, Carl Cudhea. First, to lend dignity to the evening we went to the opera, where we heard that superb artist, Lorraine Sherman, as Madame Kitchenfly. Then, we visited several night clubs. At the Club Marseilles, I bought a rose from the stately flower girl, Adrienne Morse, while that famous hot swing trio composed of Doris Consigny, Agnes Bankowski, and Harriet Brown went to town. As we got up to dance, the celebrated Lucille Britton of headline fame sailed in with her prospective fourth husband in tow, and her arms decorated with diamond bracelets, most of them, no doubt, from Frances Krugel's exclu- sive Fifth Avenue Jewelry Establishment. After witnessing the renowned pre- cision dancing of the chorus girls, Mary Markewich, Antosa Milenavich, and Dorothy Warren, I decided that the sun was now arisen to a suflicient height to allow me to go to bed. Therefore I went to my hotel to get some sleep. leaving a message with the night clerk, Lena Shepherd, to call me at ten o'clock, fwhich she, of course, neglected to doj. After a twelve o'clock breakfast, I went out for a walk, thinking I might run into some of my old acquaintances. Selling popcorn on the corner was Evelyn Maynard, and she was, by the looks of things, telling Betty Bergeron to go peddle her hotdogs at some other location. A car screeched to a stand- still, and I heard Dorothy Giles, the back seat driver, yell "Henre-e-e, I told you not to go so fast." Thereupon Henry meekly started again at a snail's pace. Two sophisticated debutantes, Rita Pombrio and Pearl Gamache, wearing the latest thingamajigs in hats, went by in a cream-colored roadster: no doubt on their way to a pink tea. At a stand owned by Nellie Urban, I bought a newspaper. Glancing down the front page, I saw a picture of Laure LePage, Wall Street tigress, who had just made another big deal. Also on the front page was the news that Betty Hagerty, wife of a multimillionaire manufacturer of holeless doughnuts, had just recovered from the measles. I notice that some of you are fldgeting, so here I'll end my talk, which your principal, Marjorie Irvine, asked me to deliver here tonight before the graduating class of nineteen fifty. I have told you what graduates of the class of nineteen-thirty-nine are doing. May you in some cases follow in their footsteps, and in other cases forget to do so. BEATRICE FRASER. PART IV Twenty long years have rolled by since I stood up here and read off the prophecies for the class of l939. In these twenty years it has been fun to keep track of my former classmates and to see how they are faring in the world. I have been able to do this with the assistance of Paul Seaman, who is now famous for finding a way to put vitamin X, the bark-inducing vitamin, in Snappo Dog Biscuits, a dog biscuit manufactured by Alfred Doucet and Pro- fessor Paul McAdoo, the latter also owner of a trained seal act now touring in vaudeville. Our class has spread to the four corners of the earth, scattering goodwill everywhere. Edmund Styrna, for instance, has become a missionary in the Belgian Congo: Harry Cross is devoting his life to a study of the duck-billed platypus, one of Australia's many curious animals. Stanley Purvinis and Wil- bur Milliken are at sea searching for the lost continent of Atlantis: their trip is being sponsored by Gregory Pederzani, the maker of Pederzani's Super Air Rifles Creighton Mulvanity, influenced no doubt by his job as a class prophet, is now appearing as Swami, the Fortune Teller. Roland Vaillancourt, a physi- cist, has, working independently of Copernicus and Columbus, advanced a theory that the world is round. Doctor Peter Stamelos is now a world-famous veterinarian. Edward Stapanon and Veto Vaticonis have gone into partnership in a dairy farm in the flatlands of Brooklyn. Donald Doughty has made himself a saviour of mankind through his invention of skidless soap. Armand Hysette, better known as just plain Armand, is now a chef at the Hotel New Yorker. Some of our class have very odd jobs indeed. Geraldine Hanson is a hostess on the new Fifth Avenue Subway. Raymond Trombley has a job in a mattress factory, breaking in mattresses. John Masten is now in sunny Spain, where he has made quite a reputation as a bull-fighter. And last but not least among the odd-jobs is that of Donald Birchall, who poses for collar ads. Our class has also produced some experts in the field of literature. Homer McMurray has at last revealed his finer, nobler side and has become a poet. He wrote Butterflies-fA Book in Verse. Robert Morrison is writing an "Ad- vice to the Lovelorn" column in the Nashua Telegraph, which is published by Wilfred Ciagnon. Harold Hill, the editor of an almanac, made himself world- famous by predicting the weather correctly one day a year or two ago. Among guardians of the peace of one sort or another we have Edward Suskevich, the head of the strong-arm squad on the Nashua Police Department, and Edgar Lemay, Justice of the Peace, who has made Nashua a famous Gretna Green. Outside the country we have two traffic officers, Paul Apostolica in the Yukon Valley in Alaska, and Vitie Corosa in the Gobi Desert in Arabia. Vitie wrote saying that the whole desert traffic squad has just received some .radio- equipped camels to make their job easier. Frank Richardson is now a 'sergeant in the French Foreign Legion. Other classmates now living out of the United States are George Benson, king of a South Sea island which he won as a consolation prize in a cereal con- test, and Roger Dumaine, who has a chain of peanut plantations in Peru. All students wishing to know the price of peanuts in Peru are referred to Roger. The love of animals has built a career for Raymond Pinet, who owns a pet shop. Animals figure also in the careers of Wesley Boles, who has be- come a peerless animal trainer, and Albert "Bring 'Em Back Anyway" Bon- nette, a big-game hunter who supplies Wesley with his sparring partners. Al- though his prey is not so large, Maurice Lemay has made quite a reputation for himself as an insect exterminator. Hollywood has called many of our friends. You all remember Maurice French, don't you? He is now a cowboy in M-G-M's latest Western thriller, "The Lone Ranger in Mars." Joseph Sienkiewicz and Bronca Kamienecka are co-starring in the current production of Romeo and Juliet, showing at the State Theater next Tuesday. Incidentally, the owner of the State Theater is Chris Rellas, who asked me to tell you that next Tuesday night is Living-Room Night. A handsome, upholstered easy chair is being given away to every patron. In the field of music we have Marie Sherlock and Albert Ouellette, the singing team which scored such a remarkable hit in the opera, "The Cuckoo's Crow," written by our own Wanda Goy. Stanley Jureka is the conductor of the orchestra at the Metropolitan Opera House. Dancing also is enriched by the achievements of members of our class. Gerald Gallant is country with his now touring the American Ballet troupe, and George Greenleaf, the originator of the dance, "The Little Potato," is now making a personal appearance tour with Harlan Linscott's ever-popular or- chestra, The Linscott Lullaby Loons. The boys, however, are not the only ones to be up in the world. Doro- thy Ford is in charge of the information department at Grand Central Station: Mildred Williams enjoys the distinction ofbeing the only lady blacksmith in the country: and Edna Elwell has become world-famous by winning four blue ribbons for her World's Fair Squash exhibit. She is president of the Amal- gamated Squash-growers Union of America. Some innovations made by former members of our class have proved of value to the public. Robert Keene has started a group of kindergartens, pos- sibly trying to recapture some departed pleasures. Robert Wood and Nicholas Floras are experimenting with stingless bees on their bee ranch in the Rocky Mountains. Speaking of ranches, Glendon Puckett has a job breaking in horses on a dude ranch. , Here and there we run across some very odd vocations. Edward Hutch- ins has one of these. He is teaching college boys the correct way to go about gulping goldfish. While deep-sea diving, Norman Wheeler found a mermaid, the puzzle of the deep, and made a fortune for himself by selling her to the Smithsonian Institute. Edmund Kopka is the owner of an alligator farm in Florida. The lure of metropolitan life, as it has a habit of doing, has drawn some of our students from the seeming dullness of the small city into the hurly-burly of New York. Rockefeller Center has as Nashua's representatives Albina For- rest, chief in charge of all tree surgeons in the center, and Roy Grant, who broad- casts his daily "Cooking Lessons to Bachelors." Graduating from a position as head salad-maker at the Ritz, Bernice Burnika has become a millinery de- signer at Saks Fifth Avenue. Lucille Hodge has risen to great heights in her new position as a steeplejack. Taking a position formerly considered the ex- clusive property of men, Rachel Riendeau has become one of the best bridge- designers in the world. Night club life has claimed Peter Banaskevich, who has been quite a play- boy and man-about-town since winning the Irish Sweepstakes. Dorothy Caron is a torch singer at Pete's on the old Lowell road. Frank Lapin is now the owner, and George Gardner the manager in charge of the penthouse, at Pete's. Lucille Durst is a gold-digger in the Silver Dollar Bar's new floor show. Ray- mond Baron is also on the floor show as "Baroni the Magician." His favorite trick is making his entire audience disappear. The urge to travel has appealed to many thirty-niners. Raymond Chan- tal started on a rocket trip to the moon but had to make a forced landing at Coney Island. He now operates the roller-coaster there, Paul Messier wanted to rise to great heights in New York. He did, He now owns the Empire State Building. I Lucille Chagnon is the owner of a chain of twenty-five cents, fifty cents, and a dollar beauty parlors. Her dollar treatments feature the Karauski toe- dimpler, styled by Daniel Karauski. While on the subject of fashions we may mention Christos Costaros who is known as the fashion plate of the North Woods, where he is a fishing and hunting guide, Another authority on what is proper is Sylvia Gauthier, the Emily Post of our day. Andrew Palanski owns the dog concession at the Yankee Stadium. Elphege Desclos is a swan-boat operator on Boston Common. Ronald Short is a bouncer at the Brown Derby, and Roland Robichaud is a bellhop at Grand Hotel. All these jobs are useful to a steadily growing public. Norman Robbins has a job not to be envied. He is a wrestling referee, James Papachristos has been hired by the Russian Government to lead mass drill. Richard Trufant is with the circus as a juggler. His experience carry- ing milk bottles back to the lunch counter in his high school days has proved invaluable to him. The lure of Old China has drawn two members of the class of '39. China's need for flying instructors has been satisfied by Dorothy Brewer and Theresa Bourgault. They were selected by the Honorable General of the Chinese Army, Philip Kirkpatrick. Another member of our class in the Orient is Ethel Watkins, who holds a very high position on the royal secretarial staff of the Emperor of Japan. In the ranks of nature-lovers we have Charles Soroko and Helen Drabin- owitz, co-editors of the magazine Our Fine-Feathered Friends, and Dorothy Lantzas, who is founder of the Lantzas Home for Deaf and Dumb Humming- Birds. Also in the field of nature is Lionel Ouellette, ace snake-charmer with lVlefoofsky's Reptilian act. Last but by no means least we come to Melvina Lapinski, the first woman- president of the United States of Bali-Bali. Hats off to Melvinal In parting let me quote a few lines once said by Confucius, "If you build a better mousetrap you'll soon find a needle in his haystack," or words to that effect. ' ALFRED MAURICE. Class Cration Vincit Qui Se Vincit "Who Conquers Self Is Truly Conqueror" For the past few months. we, the people of the United States, have been greatly concerned with the precarious position of international af- fairs. We have reason to be so concerned. Even though the present American policy is one of staunch neutrality, and an ocean five thousand miles wide may separate our continent from the strife across the sea, we realize that foreign en- tanglements inevitably concern our welfare. We have profited greatly from experience gained in the years 1914 to 1918 and we now know that if the world must be made safe for democracy, it certainly will never be accomplished by conflict. We, therefore, are determined to use one method only for settling discord-that meth- od shall be arbitration. Arbitration provides the means for negotiating the reconciliation of belligerent nations in a satisfactory manner. A declaration of war and the mere conquering of another nation does not subdue the existing attitude of the conquered people, but only incites a more intense feeling of hatred. The armistice of a war is only a temporary suspension of hostilities, not a period in which a cooperative spirit and goodwill reign. These foregoing statements of mine concerning the strife across the sea, may serve to create the impression that the word conquer, as well as its meaning, should be banned from the lives of humanity because it destroys the feeling of goodwill, This is quite true in the case of enmity toward peoples or nations where an unlawful, inhuman cause is the object of conflict. However, you may say, for example, that in the case of any competitive sport the conquering motive is indeed very strong, and yet there are no harmful effects arising from it, True -victory is the reward for the participation in the contest: the victor must conquer his opponent, but a feeling of goodwill prevails and there is no mali- cious intent to promote a harmful effect. We are still confronted with the fact that the ability to conquer or master another is considered a great achievement regardless of motive. History glorifies the feats of Caesar and Napoleon. Both of these conquerors reaped a harvest of glory at the expense of loyal subjects and became heroes to posterity. As individuals their characteristics were unnoticeable: as leaders of con- quering peoples they excelled and were raised to great heights. We do not wish to defame these immortals, but can we truthfully say that they were of sterling character and high ideals? They were possessed of genius and the ability to master others, but were they capable managers of their own personal lives? Were they able to master their own personal imperfections? lf they were not, then I believe they had no just reason in their attempt to conquer others. The proverb "Make it thy business to know thyself, which is the most difficult lesson in the world," clearly states this thought. Therefore, if we apply our abilities to conquer to the mastery of our own problems and handicaps, to the control of the undesirable impulses and thoughts generated within our minds, instead of to the mastery of others, we are truly employing our motto, i'Who Conquers Self is Truly Conqueror," and the word conquer is given a constructive significance. There are many striking examples that serve to illustrate the success at- tained by those who were determined to conquer physical handicaps. Such eminent people as Edward Livingston Trudeau, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Glen Cunningham, and Helen Keller, have set forth inspiring examples. We are all familiar with the courageous story of Edward Livingstone Trudeau, the beloved physician, who after conquering tuberculosis within his own body, helped to restore others to health. Standing today at Saranac Lake in the Adirondack Mountains of New York is a magnificent sanitarium built for those afflicted with tuberculosis: it is a fitting memorial to a man of undying cou.rage. A Another famous American, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, our President, also deserves recognition for the determination and faith he possessed in the van- quishing of that dreaded disease, infantile paralysis. His achievements are many and they will live on forever. ' The name Glen Cunningham speaks for itself and strikes a chord of admiration within us. Regardless of severe burns which deprived him of the use of his legs, and doctors' pessimistic predictions that he would never Walk again, this lad learned not onlyto walk, but also to run,-to run with such speed that he has become the fastest miler in the world. Helen Keller, another prominent figure, undoubtedly is known through- out the world because of the strength of her remarkable achievements. The manner in which she overcame the treble handicap which was hers should put many of us to shame. Since these people have been successful in conquering extreme physical handicaps, it is only logical that we conclude that we should be able to over- come our petty diniculties with comparative ease. However, if we assume the can't-be-done attitude and allow such an attitude to dominate us, we have what is commonly termed an inferiority complex. lt is a true example of one of the undesirable traits we wish to conquer. Such a condition is very harmful to a person's well-being because it tends to become a part of his nature if no attempt is made to curb it. ltr marks the person as a sluggish individual devoid of ambition, when in truth he may be only a backward type of person that restrains himself from progressing too rapidly because he fears the result of his attempts. How much would have been accomplished in the scientific and mechanical fields if such eminent people as Louis Pasteur and Thomas A. Edison had been of such caliber, and had been devoid of ambition and the will to conquer the unknown? The answer to this question is obvious. They would have been content with their first experiment whether it became a success or a failure, and their contributions to mankind would have been few. Are we going to allow our first experiments in life, whatever they may be, to become dismal failures? Indeed we are notl We are now leaving the portals of our beloved school with high hope and ambition. At present we possess dau.ntless courage with which to face life. Let u.s first set our goal, and then let us strive to overcome all the obstacles in' our path till our ambitions are realized. We must, however, prepare ourselves to meet these obstacles. We boast a liberal education at present, but our greatest knowledge will be gained from actual experience and contact with everyday problems. You may be one of those fortunate enough to be able to further your quest for knoyvledge in the higher institutions of learning. If so, you have a golden opportunity to T, broaden to a greater degree your intellectual scope. Whatever one may obtain in wordly knowledge can be made useful only if the individual possesses the ability to use this knowledge. Personal qualities must be increased to the highest possible standard. lf these qualities are undeveloped, one must immediately attempt to strengthen them. The world of today waits for no one, and the unequipped are sadly left behind. Yes, Classmates, it is indeed difficult for us to realize that we are four-year veterans of Nashua Senior High School, about to graduate into a world of un- certainty, yet a world of many opportunities. Our destiny is known by fate alone, but remember that fate is not altogether uncontrollable. ln a sense, the course of fate is governed by the manner in which we live. As we go forth into the whirlpool of life we must remember that certain constituent truth- our motto-- "Who Conquers Self ls Truly Conqueror." When the sea of life becomes tempest-tossed, we shall remember that courage, faith, and determination shall keep our heads above the waves of despair. The person that truly believes and practices the motto, "Who Conquers Self Is Truly Conqueror," shall, without a doubt, be habitually successful in any undertaking, and succeed to unprecedented heights. FRANK RICHARDSON , WW ty 29 1 - -- ff' v . Y a N 5 Valeclictory WOMEN IN MEDICINE ln 1939, with two World's Fairs claiming our attention, we are constantly aware of what we can expect in the world of tomorrow. We realize that this world of tomorrow will be charac- terized by new scientinc discoveries and changed social conditions and ways of living. With these changes will come new vocations in which we who are being graduated tonight may try to obtain employment, It is natural to suppose that many of us will become engaged in these newly created vocations, but it is also certain that some of us will find our place in well-tried fields. Medicine, which dates back almost to the beginning of time, is such a field, one which offers fascinating oppor- tunities to women as well as to men. Since the days of the classical Greeks, thou- sands of years ago, women have practiced medicine and delved into the medical sciences following the teachings of the goddesses of healing, lsis the Greek goddess, and Diana the Roman. From that time until the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries when strange narrow-minded ideas about feminine privi- leges and a woman's place in the world forced them from open research and practice, women were recognized as versed in methods of medical research and practice. It is known that Pythias, the wife of Aristotle, had so great a knowledge of the healing sciences that about 370 B. C. she went with her husband to a small island in the Mediterranean to collaborate with him in writing a dis- tinguished encyclopedia on what were then thought to be medical facts. About 400 years after the birth of Christ, the Roman Fabiola was the disciple of the great healer St. Jerome, and the Empress Eudoxia at the same time founded a hospital in Jerusalem. Perhaps the next outstanding feminine doctor was Trotula, a teacher at Salerno, the medieval medical college, and a writer of the eleventh century. Her volume, Experiments of Medicine. was published in 1554, many years after her death, and is still considered a learned although somewhat outdated treatise. A contemporary woman, Saint Hildegard of Bengen, the head nun of a convent on the German Rhine, was making herself known to the world as a physician and author of fourteen volumes on the causes and cures of various diseases. These volumes were called in later years the greatest scientific works of the Middle Ages. In the twelfth century, it became rather a fashion of the time for feminine members of royal families to take an interest in the care of the sick. Matilda, wife of Henry I of England, Eleanor of Aquitaine, wife of Louis VII of France, and Berengaria, wife of Alfonso of Castile, all founded hospitals and took an active interest in their operation, not only donating large sums of money but also personally performing the duties of doctors and nurses. The greatest single medical triumph for women in the Middle Ages, however, occurred when the Guild of Surgeons, founded in London in 1389, recognized women as able surgeons and permitted them to become members shortly after its founding. In this same century, Boccaccio, the famous Italian writer, brought into his tales some French medical women. He seems to have known the obstacles and difficulties which they were overcoming, since he wrote of one feminine physician as the "courageous woman." Thus women continued work in the advancement of medicine and methods of treatment until about 1614, when it became increasingly difiicult for women to study and obtain licenses to practice. Even in the American colonies, many of which had been established to give freedom to people who could not tolerate the oppression of their mother country, women doctors were persecuted. The first person ever to be put to death in the Massachusetts Bay Colony was a woman physician, Margaret Jones, who because of her skills was considered a witch. This prejudice against Women's entrance into medical colleges and their licensing continued to be strong until a little less than a century ago when the United States was one of the first countries to change its hostile attitude and with reluctance admit a woman to a college and grant her a medical degree. This pioneer American woman was Elizabeth Blackwell, who was graduated with honors from the Geneva Medical Institution at Geneva, New York, in 1849. After this radical, for such she was considered, had blazed the way and shown that women were capable of pursuing and completing the medical course. institutions of medicine slowly began to tu.rn co-educational, and soon the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania actually opened its doors to women alone. Since the l850's, the number of women in medicine has steadily in- creased until in 1935 there were slightly over a thousand women studying to be physicians in the United States. This is the impressive history of feminine disciples of Isis and Diana, but women have not been content to rest on their laurels: therefore it is interesting to see what part women have taken in recent scientific developments and in what fields of medicine they have been successful. Descartes, the great French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher, once said, "lf it is possible to perfect mankind, the means of doing so will be found in the medical sciences." Through the medical sciences many women have played their part in perfecting mankind. World-renowned is Marie Curie, whose extraction of a small fraction of a gram of radium from tons of pitch- blende resulted in finding a treatment and cure of early cases of cancer. i Another less fatal but more contagious and wide spread disease has recently yielded some of its secrets to Dr. Jean Broadhurst. She has discovered a special stain to render visible the virus which causes measles. By this method physi- cians can now diagnose a case of this contagious disease three days before a rash appears and can also detect dangerous carriers. Because of this discovery great hope has been raised that Within the near future a similar process may result in the detection of other more serious diseases such as meningitis and infantile paralysis. As practitioners, women have tended to specialize. Two large fields every year growing larger are especially open to women, the fields of gynecology and pediatrics. It is safe to say that now, and for years to come, women will find excellent opportunities in these fields. The Russian government, recognizing this, has selected seventy-five thousand girls to train in these phases of medical practice. Women in the United States have almost entirely concentrated their efforts in these fields and have realized great success. Another type of medicine in which women have some advantages over men is the treatment of patients with mental diseases and psychological difficul- ties. The intuition, sensitiveness, and sympathy natural to the female sex make it easy for a woman physician to gain the confidence of a mental patient: thus she can more easily treat him with success. But what of the world of tomorrow? What women's place will be in the medical world of tomorrow, no one knows, but it is reasonably safe to pre- dict that they are facing a bright future. Opportunities are everywhere be- coming apparent. Numerous fields have scarcely been touched by women yet. Chief of these is surgery. Edward Podolsky in his book, Medicine Marches On. wrote, "Surgery has had a hard and long struggle: it is now coming of age." Women, too, have had a hard and long struggle in the last few centuries to gain a position in medicine, but now that they are rather securely established. it is time for them to take up the knife and needle and advance into surgery. Since they have smaller and more graceful hands than men. it should be com- paratively easy for them to develop manual skill and surgical technique. In fact, Leonard Wright, a sixteenth century controversialist, remarked that a good surgeon must have Ha hawk's eye, a lion's heart, and a lady's hand." Not until women enter surgery can they expect to reach the highest degree of at- tainment in the medical profession. Indeed, the future of women in medicine is a bright one. No branches are overcrowded: in fact there is a shortage of feminine physicians. New methods of research have been put at their disposal. Almost all medical colleges now admit women, and prejudice against them is fast disappearing. At last women are on almost equal footing with men: thus as Hmedicine marches on" in the future, the "daughters of Aescuplapiusn can be expected to carry some of the banners in the front lines. Mr. Tracey and Members of the Board of Education: We, the Class of 1939, wish to express our grateful appreciation for the facilities and opportu- nities you have given us to aid our quest for higher education. We will try to make the diploma that we receive tonight the symbol of not the final stage of our development, but the first. Mr. Nesmith and Members of the Faculty: Through four years you have guided us. You have given us the knowledge we shall need as we go out in the world of tomorrow, and have helped to mold our characters. May we ever prove worthy of your efforts. . Parents: Through our lives you have sacrinced in order to make it possible for us to obtain an education. You have helped us when we have faltered, and bolstered our spirits when we have been discou.raged. We know that we can never repay you for what you have done, but we hope our future achievements will discharge our debt in some part. Classmates: Tonight we meet for the last time. Soon we shall go forth to start to build a place in the "world of tomorrow," our world. Let us not be easily defeated and held back by discouragements and failures. Let us all remember the courageous women of whom I have spoken who overcame many obstacles to gain success in the world of medicine.
