Where we must tread We know that millions trample in the dust: Yet, we hold our dreams aloft in hope To conquer fear's deep chasm, To inspire, to recreate, to build and plan, To explore the winding trail of life, To meet despair's dark, hurting eyes. For this is youth. To keep our tryst with life, Vkle come with earnest hearts, With heads uplifted, singing, With swinging, buoyant steps, Stretching out an earnest, greeting hand To make a friend of life.

AINSCOW JANEY A'S1'Ience and modesty are valuable qualities." A perfect example of sweet seventeen, and we do mean iylveet. Did you ever take a look at those brown eyes? ml Athletic Association III: Orchestra II, III, IV: Music Festival IV. EARLINE CLARE ALEXANDER "Choice words, and measured phrase Above the reach of ordinary men." Earline was hardly ever seen without a smile on her face, and she has a Honefin-aAmillion" disposition. She wishes to write poetry, and her present talent predicts suc- cess. Music Festival II: Discussion Club III: Chorus II, III, IV: Culee Club II, III. IV: Senior Play Usher. AMELIA ANITA ALUKONIS A'MIMI" "Active always, talking ever Vfitty and merry, decidedly clever." "Mimi" was skilled and popular, both on the gym floor and in her classes.

III, IV: Library Club II: Tatller Reporter IV: Softball II. III: Basketball II. III: Volley Ball II. III: Rifle Club III: Athletic Association II, III, IV: Upper Quarter. ALICE BERNADETTE ANCTIL AL "For everyone she had a smile And made her school days all worth while." Al has executive ability which she demonstrated in Room ll4 every morning when she took charge of at- tendance. She is a pleasant girl and was ever ready with her lessons. She often amazed us with her ability to translate German. ALPHONSE A. AANDRUSKEVICH "FONCIE" "ln sport and friendship. a thoroughbred." "Foncie" has a very pleasing personality which causes him to be well-liked wherever he may be. I-Ie has won the admiration and respect of friends, teachers, and all who have met him. His football activities have earned him a reputation of sportsmanship which is hard to parallel. Football II, III, IV: Basketball. Varsity III: Athletic Association II. III, IV: Tattler Reporter IV: Upper Quarter. fourteen, JACKSON ANNIS "Speech is greatg but silence is greater." Jackson. practical-minded at all times, impressed those who knew him as possessing great capability in carrying out anything he undertook. This steadiness of purpose foreshadows a future of successful achievement. RICHARD ANNIS DICK "There are many ways to fame." Here is an amazing artist in three different fields. draw- ing. drama. and writing. Dick's drawing ability had long been evident. but it was not until his senior year that his other talents popped up. Then he surprised us by winning an essay contest and a dramatic scholarship. Tattler Reporter II. III: Tattler Exchange Editor IV: Upper Quarter: Class Orator. CONRAD ARBOUR "PAT" "Right wrongs no man." "Pats" desire to be right caused him to wrong no- body, and as a result he had a host of ardent friends. His school activities were not very spectacular, but his presence in our class could hardly be ignored. You have our good wishes, "Pat." MARY ELIZABETH ARCHER BETTY "A friendly nature, a helping hand. WIUIIIIITQ and ready to understand." People who enjoy rendering assistance to others are rare indeed. The world needs the unselfish outlook of more Bettys. Chorus II. III. IV: Cilee Club III: Athletic Association Il. III, IV. STANLEY MICHAEL ARLAUSKAS STAN "A youth there was with quiet ways." Serious and sober in demeanor. Stan exemplified a cer- tain stability which was well worth observing. When- ever he spoke, one felt that the words had been carefully considered. Rifie Club II. fifteen i NORMA ARNOLD NORM "Her eyes as stars of twilight fair: Like twilight, too, her dusky hair." Nice hardly describes Norm. She was simply "tops," She had the darlingest dimples and "twinkly" eyes. Chorus III: Athletic Association II, III, IV. Q WANDA PATRICIA AUGUNAS 'lKID" "She dances like an angel." In the realm of twinkling feet lie her interest. We are sure as we see her lightly lilting her way down the corri- dors that Vklanda will become .1 famous dance instructor. Interclass Basketball II. III: Tumbling Team II: Home Economics Club II. III. IV: Everyday Living Club IV. OLGA PAULINE BACKER "DOLLY" "She's the ornament of her sex." "Dolly," a prize member of the fair sex, was always in the midst of a crowd. Although very popular, she managed to have time for serious outside activities. Talller II: Shorthand Club III: Dramatics Club Secre- tary III. IV: Athletic Association II, III. IV: Tusilala Paragrapher: You Cun'I Take It With You: Lady Who Ate An Oysler: Upper Quarter.

Home Economics Club II: Press Club IV: Intramural Softball, Basketball, and Volley Ball II and III: Upper Quarter, - ? GERALDINE ELIZABETH BALASKY l GERRY "Please don't get me started!" Cierry was a smiling individual who gained the respect of her friends for her fluent and intelligent remarks in English. She is a tennis fan and you should see her smack that ball to win the set! Athletic Association II. III, IV: Chorus II: Library Club III: Home Economics III: Rifle Club III: Press Club IV: Tusitala Paragrapher: Upper Quarter. sixteen DAVID BARKER "ABBOTT" "Don't let it bother you: ll doesn't worry me." "Abbott" managed to keep it a secret for a long time, but during our senior year. he certainly showed he could play a mean "ad lib" on his sax. Wasn't he an excellent specimen of manhood with his brawn and good looks? Tatller Reporter II. III: A. A. Show IV: Football II, III: Basketball II: Track IV: Intramural Hockey III: Drill Team II: Usher l939 Graduation: Tusitala Para- grapher: A, A. II, III, IV: Upper Quarter: Class Prophet. RITA BARON "RITZ" "She is gentle, quiet, and sedate: And as a pal-Hrs! rate." "Ritz" was popular with all who knew her. As she was interested in anything going on, she could be seen at any school function, whether it was a sport or a dance. History Club IV: A. A. II. III, IV: I-Iome Economics Club III. ELEANOR BARRY EL "Shes always peppy, never blue: She's popular, pretty, jolly, and true." There was hardly a senior who didn't know El. Her tall, vivacious. neatly clothed Hgure was seen almost every- where, and she left laughter where she found gloom. Music II, IV: Home Economics Club III. IV: A. A. II. III. IV: Usher at Senior Play: Paragrapher for Tusitala. CHRISTINE E. BARTLETT TEENA "Clothes make the woman." Did you ever see Teena when she wasn't stylishly dressed in the latest mode?

III: Dramatics Club II, III, IV: Press Club IV: Senior Play Prompter IV: Exit Three IV: Tusitalu Paragrapher: Upper Quarter. a ROBERT BEAULIEU "BOI.EY" "The man with t1 system." "Boley." meticulous, observant, could not have chosen a better career than that of a mechanical engineer. We envy "Boley" with his quiet, intelligent, but good-natured manners that will get him a long way in this competitive world of ours. Ah! What a man! se menteen 4 - rg TN. ROBER'I' BECHARD "A fresh, a true, a friendly man." Bob always had a good word for everyone. and every- one had a good word for him. You had to know Bob to understand him. Among boys he is considered an all- around fellow. IRENE ALICE BELAND "fl girl who Crm work. cz girl who crm play." Irene was a very cheerful but quiet girl who was seldom in a hurry. Although her step was leisurely. her smile was quick. Chorus II, III. IV: Athletic Association II, III, IV: Upper Quarter. ADAM BELOWSKI "ARCHIE" "Slow but sure." "Archie" wasn't much of a ladies' man, although he had what it takes. His hobbies. hunting, 'f1shing. and many other sports. occupied most of his time. Intramural Softball III. JOHN BOYD BENSON "Handsome, and has wit at will." John. with his slow smile, quiet nature, and pleasant countenance, is a sincere friend. He is one of the most handsome boys in our class. Cheer Leader III. TERESA BERNARD TERRY "Jog sparkled in her dark eyes like L1 gem." Terry's sweet and quiet manner is helied bv the glint of mischief which one can detect from time to time in her brown eyes. , Glee Club II: Drama Day Refreshment Committee II: Home Economics II, III. IV: Upper Quarter. eighteen MAURICE BERNIER BERNIE "DiIiaem'e is the mother of good fortune." Although Bernie spent a lot of his time perfecting model nts vtc ilwi s knew he was around because of his airpla " . .y. , participation in curricular and extra-curricular activities. Band Il. Ill, IV: Orchestra II, III: A. A. II, III. FLORENCE BICKFORD FLO "We are born to be happy, all of us." Flo was one who took school as it came and never worried about it. With her happy-go-lucky air. she carved herself an enduring niche in the minds of her com- rades, Home Economics Club II, III: A. A. II, III, IV. VICTOR I-. BJORKMAN VIC "l'ii.'aci1y and wit make a man shine in company." There were two sides to Vic. One was jovial, the other serious. Although his friends knew him for his unfailing gocgi humor and wittyiremarks, not many realized his industry outside of school. Talller Reporter IV: Golf IV: A. A. II, III, IV.

A. Express, which stressed quality and not quantity. When we entered Nashua High in the fall of '36 we had to go to school in the afternoon. This prevented any of the freshmen from participating in football, even though many wanted to get experience for later years. But much to our joy. Coach Chesnulevich decided to form a freshman basketball team composed mostly of former Junior High players. This team took the place of the former sophomore teams, On the team were Danny Pietuch. "Jo" Doughty, Al Andruskevich, David Barker, Gilly Rollins, and Tony Worsowicz. These boys were being developed for future varsity material. They played all the preliminary games and made a few trips because of their impressive showing. During the spring of '37 only "Fritzchen" Flynn, a utility shortstop, made the baseball team. Many sophomores answered Coach Chesnulevich's football call in 1937. Many of these escaped the hatchet and didn't receive the "l'll see you next year, boys" farewell. Most notable among this aggregate were Gilbert Rollins, Nicholas Daukas. Alphonse Andruskevich, Frank Polak, Robert Kilbane. Rob- ert Curtis, Walter Peterson, David Barker, Daniel Pietuch, Leo Richards, George Doughty, Peter Bruen, and Raymond Gardner. The latter received a leg in- jury which necessitated surgical attention and undoubtedly hampered Ray on the diamond in the coming spring. Nicholas Daukas was the sole sophomore to receive a starting berth on the grid team and thereby be awarded an Then when December rolled around, our last year's freshman basketball team was converted into the sophomore team to get more experience. This team consisted of Marvin Mayo and Tony Worsowicz, forwards: "Jo" ghty-rm Doughty, center: Danny Pietuch and Ciilly Rollins, guards: and Al Andruske- vich was a reserve. This team made a very impressive record by losing only one game on the home floor and one on a foreign one. No player earned his varsity letter. Now baseball was quickly approaching, and we had to prepare what was to be a State Champion Team. Only a few men from our class were on this squad, namely, "Eagle" Richards, utility outfielder: "Fritzchen" Flynn, sub shortstop: and Tony Worsowicz, sub third baseman. Also sub pitchers were "Dizzy" Gardner, 'lButch" Fraser, and Marvin Mayo. ln the fall of '38 after a gruelling pre-season practice Nick Daukas earned a first team rating as a tackle. Others on the squad were "Butch" Fraser, Danny Pietuch, Al Andruskevich, Dave Barker, "Speed" Curtis, Lester Hodge, Joe Karstok, and "Jo" Doughty. Nicholas Daukas was elected to succeed his brother Louis in the captaincy. Now in our junior year of basketball, after a month of practice the coach found that there were two teams of equal quality. On one of the combina- tions were Marvin Mayo, forward: Danny Pietuch, center: Gilly Rollins, and Tony Worsowicz, guards. This led many to believe that a championship team was in the making. But much to the disappointment of the fans we had only a mediocre season and then finally lost to Berlin High in the "prelims" at the State Tournament held at the University of New Hampshire. Tony Wor- sowicz was elected' captain for the following year. In the spring on the track team was the second fastest dash man in the state, Gilly Rollins. He was handicapped by a broken wrist in the middle of the season, yet brought home many a point for Nashua High. This team lost the state championship by a fraction of a point. John Groves also earned his letter. ln the spring of '39 the baseball team had a wonderful season, losing only one game: that was to Lowell. On it were "Fritzchen" Flynn, shortstop: Tony Worsowicz, third baseman: "Eagle" Richards, outfielder: and "Dizzy" Gardner, pitcher. All of these boys received sweaters, and the team claimed the State Championship. The golf team won the state championship by defeating Manchester Cen- tral. Richard McDonald, Archie Williamson, and Wallace Foster received let- ters. The last-named was elected captain. Now came our final year in school and the boys were ready to show their real ability. The football team, after having spring practice and pre-season training at a North Conway camp, gave a good exhibition of football playing during the year. On the team were "Butch" Fraser, Danny Pietuch, and Peter Bruen, ends: Captain Nick Daukas and David McC1regor, tackles: Leo Richards Frank Polak, and Lester Hodge, guards: Jo Doughty, center: Joe Karstok, Gilly Rollins, Al Andruskevich, Bob Curtis, and "Tootsie" Coutsonikas, backfield men. All of these boys received fine sweaters with letters for the good work they did during the year. Nicholas Daukas, who received a serious leg injury, nevertheless was the only one to make the mythical All-State team. Now came the basketball season. On the first team were Marvin Mayo, forward: Danny Pietuch, center: Gilly Rollins, "Stitch" O'Neil, and Captain Tony Worsowicz, guards. The team had a great season and enjoyed an over- night trip to Berlin High, only to lose to Berlin, who became State Champions. We closed our wonderful season by losing to Manchester Central in the semi- finals in the tournament held annually at Durham. Now the baseball season is coming and everyone expects a creditable season for the team. Veterans returning are "Fritzchen" Flynn, captain and short- stop: Tony Worsowicz, "Eagle" Richards, "Butch" Fraser, Marvin Mayo, eighty-two Frank Polak, Laurien Brodeur, and Edward Reynolds. The track team led by Captain Gilly Rollins expects to win the State title. On the tennis team are Rodolphe Bouchard and George Doughty, who was captain of the team the last three years. Richard Norton is a member of the cross country team. The managers of the respective sports in 1939-1940 are: Football, Ray- mond Ciagnonz baseball, Walter McLaughlin and James Ryan: basketball, Al- fred Kamieniecki. The athletes are greatly indebted to Coaches Chesnulevich, Mansfield, Ma- loney, Morley, Kilbane, and White for the instruction which they have given. for the spirit of fair play, the "never give up" attitude and team work which they have instilled into the hearts of the boys. To Submaster Cheney Law- rence and Superintendent Earle Tracey goes a salute of gratitude and thanks for their untiring efforts to promote athletics in Nashua High. To Mr. Joseph Lee, Mr. Joseph Kilbane, Mr. Patrick Morley, and Mr. Edmund Keefe, who have collaborated unceasingly during 1939-1940 to put athletics on a paying basis and have succeeded, goes a salvo of applause. In conclusion no one should overlook the work done by our Physical Directors, Miss Priscilla Hamel, Mr. Richard Messer, and Mr. Harold Little- field, to make our Intramural Sports a success.

Thrillsl If you visited the Nashua High School auditorium on the evening of De- cember I5, 1939, there is no doubt that you spent a very enjoyable evening. for then the class of l940 presented that hilarious hit of Moss Hart and George Kaufman, "You Can't Take It With You." The play depicts the everyday doings of a mildly insane family who live in New York. The members of this family do exactly as they wish, whenever they wish, and nobody ever ques- tions them. When the play opened, we saw Penelope Sycamore, a character very well played by Lesley Peart of Derry, typing out plays. Penny is quite an artistic type of lady who constantly manages to do the wrong thing at the wrong time. She happens to be writing plays merely because eight years ago a typewriter was left at the house by mistake. Her elder daughter, Essie, very Well portrayed by Virginia Grattan, devotes the greater part of her time trying to become a toe dancer and also a candy maker. Ed Carmichael, Wallace Welch's notable part, is Essie's happy-go-lucky husband, and quite an artist on the Xylophone. Grand- pa Vanderhof, the nucleus of this eccentric but happy family, was impersonated by Frederick Erb. CGrandpa's hobbies included attending all sorts of com- mencements, collecting snakes, and meeting police ofiicers on street corners every night.J Erb's interpretation of this difiicult role was a memorable one. Our own pessimistic Jimmy Ryan rather fooled us in his part as Penny's husband, Paul Sycamore, who never seemed to worry about anything but his fireworks. Mr. De Pinna, Paul's partner in the fireworks business, was played by Arthur Pappathan. who virtually put the audience in stitches whenever he came on the stage. Boris Kolenkhov, Essie's critical dancing teacher, was played by none other than Alex Monius. We shall never forget this startling character, who seemed to have but two opinions, one about Essie's dancing f"it stinks!"D and the other about the Russian government. Alice, the younger Sycamore daugh- ter, enacted by Louise Lucier, and Tony Kirby, Jr., the son of Alice's boss, CDavid Brownl, provided the desired love touch. Also important in the household were two colored lovers, the maid, Rheba, played by Elizabeth Wright, and Rheba's "steady," Donald, depicted by Jack Hargrove. Rodolphe Bouchard was very good as Henderson, the internal revenue collector from Washington. eighty-fire The second act hardly began before we recognized Ruth Linscott as Gay Wellington, a free-lance actress, brought home by Penny after a chance en- counter on a bus-top. Mr. and Mrs. Kirby, the sophisticated parents of Tony Kirby, were Very well played by Pauline Backer and Roland Gagnon. Effec- tive too, were the four G-men, played by Robert Hermance, Kenneth Laplante, Frank Merrill, and Nicholas Stergiou. Finally, in Act III, we had the honor of meeting Grand Duchess Olga of Russia, impersonated by Anne Sabalausky. Amelia Alukonis and Christine Bartlett deserve praise for their work as prompters. Only those who have filled such a capacity realize the patient and tireless effort it requires. Music was rendered by members of the Nashua High School Orchestra under the leadership of Ashley Ingham. Again Miss Elizabeth F. Cornell deserves much credit for her coaching talent and her painstaking effort in directing this, our Senior Play. Various committees rendered inestimable help in the management of our play. Under the joint leadership of Gilbert Rollins and James O'Neil, the -number of tickets sold reached a record-breaking total. Richard Annis headed the publicity com- mittee, which should be praised for its splendid work. Costumes, however difficult to obtain, were procured by the industrious committee headed by Daisy Urquhart. The property committee. under the excellent leadership of Shirley Law, is to be praised highly for its diligent efforts in obtaining the numerous and complicated objects used on the stage. The stage committee headed by John Eaton, and the program and usher committee, whose chairman was Patricia Dowd, also offered efficient help in making the performance a success. "EXIT THREE" "Exit Three," Kenneth Senter's original play, which won in the Nashua contest, was presented in an assembly March 28. The curtains parted to show us a humble abode inhabited by impoverished Russian peasants. Alexander Monius dramatically played the part of the father who fully realized the neces- sity of their helping the government in its effort to continue war. His pitiable wife, effectively played by Christine Bartlett, resented giving aid to' an auto- cratic government which made merry while the common people starved. In a dark corner of this lowly home their only child was dying of starvation. Frank Merrill, George Doughty, and Rodolphe Bouchard, in their parts as government officials, truly impressed us, while "Beebe" Burnham, Frederick Erb, and Ken- neth Laplante enhanced the play with their portrayal of neighboring peasants. The play, of course, could not have been such a success had it not been for Miss Cornell, our dramatics director. Amelia Alukonis was again the of- ficial prompter. "THE LADY WHO ATE AN OYSTERH We hardly thought that such a commotion could occur over a little oyster until we saw Mary Cunningham's play, "The Lady Who Ate An Oyster," pre- sented in the assembly April 9. This riotous play, our entry in the State Drama Day Festival at Rochester on March 30, concerned an oyster which was ordered by one lady but eaten by another. The oyster hardly mattered until eighty-si Z a supposedly valuable pearl was found within it. Then there was the ques- tion of to whom the jewel belonged. Kathleen Ingram and Pauline Backer gave vivid performances as, respectively, the showgirl who ate the oyster and the showgirl who ordered the oyster. Jack Hargrove added much humor to the performance as the Gentleman who Pays the Check. In this capacity he, too, had a claim on the oyster. The waitress in the restaurant was aptly played by Helen Paine. Two customers in the restaurant at the same time. the Lady with the Catsup Complex CKatherine Tennantj and the Gentleman who Dines Alone CRoland Gagnonj drew many laughs from the appreciative audience. Rodolphe Bouchard took the part of the effervescent proprietor of the restaurant, the true owner of the oyster until the gentleman should pay the bill. Arthur Pappathan then stepped in as the fish dealer who really owned the oyster. since the proprietor had not yet squared up accounts with him. Ca- mille Grandmaison was the attractive lady-reporter, who covered the whole story while the group was still perplexed. Much praise is due Miss Cornell for her excellent work as director of this play, too. Carolyn Johnson, the vice-president of our class, ably assisted the cast as prompter and property manager. ll ll ala elphty-new 9 , c ., f A I 0"'0:,.f iv ' s 7fXfQfQg1 if . if ' . 4 We, the graduating class of '40, otherwise known as the "Turn of the Decade Class," in order that we may wash our hands of our possessions and ob- sessions, and being of sane mind and memory UD, do hereby solemnly swear and declare this to be our last will and testament, and do hereby appoint Miss Lillian A.

The first person we see is Professor Frank Merrill who is about to conduct one of his famous quiz programs. Here he comes-the old Professor Francois! MERRILL: Greetings, Students, we've a whole new set of questions and three contestants who think they can answer them all. The old school bell is about to ring, so let's get off to a flying start with this first question: What is your name, Miss? K. FORD: My name is Kathryn Ford. MERRILL: Do you mind telling us what your occupation is? K. FORD: No, l'm a flagpole sitter. MERRILL: Well, Miss Ford, your first question comes from Sirmo Rellas, great Olympic swimming star, who wants you to name the girl who is now with Ringling Brothers Circus and tell what she is featured as.

Our class motto is "Everyone succeeds in something at which another fails." This, of course, applies most obviously to our vocational choices. It also con- tains a thought which may be important to'our happiness. It is obvious that among us some will become eminent in their chosen field. Doubtless, some day, out of our graduating class, we shall boast a great scientist, teacher, actor, or business executive. But we must realize that that number will be compara- tively small. The Declaration of Independence, to be sure, states that all men are created equal in their opportunities for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. lt does not mention equality of the social position they are born into, nor of the personal assets they are born with, for of course talents are unequally distributed, character traits are different in every individual, and charm of personality is heaped upon one, and yet most painfully denied another. Yet there is a place in the world for each of us. Some of these places may be inconspicuous, but they can be pleasant, and they are necessary. As an example, what would happen to the great stage star if it were not for the electricians, janitors, make-up men, and those countless men and women who spend their lives backstage, do- ing the necessary routine work which makes a great production? What would happen if the star and the electrician changed positions? Would not Lawrence Olivier look rather out of place in overalls, running a switch board? Yet no more so than the average backstage electrician would look as Romeo, in the famous balcony scene. We graduates must learn not to envy the glittering and remote characters who play life's leading roles, for to them have been entrusted potent talents, which give them no real peace or happiness until those talents have found ex- pression and recognition. All their lives, they have more demanded of them, and they set far higher demands upon themselves than the average person. Nearly all their energies are directed toward perfection in execution of their art or talent, and in the end they often find very real sorrow and discontent in their prominent places. Although we may fail to achieve public recognition, there is another field in which we may hope to succeed. Often persons who succeed in public life one hundred two are navy-blue failures in their human relations. The housewife and mother, who spends her life bent over the dishpan and set-tubs, and whose family love and honor her, is as much of a success as the world-acclaimed prima donna, who is worshiped by her public, and yet detested by those who compose her pri- vate life. The clerk who comes home at six p. m. to be really welcomed by his children is more of a success as a human being than the big business magnate who sends his children at boarding school a check, along with a letter telling them not to plan their Christmas holidays at home, as he and their mother are entertaining. Such common examples as these, which are daily occurring about us, should serve to instill in us a realization that even if we miss our mark to- ward fame and its particular compensations, we can still be very successful people in possibly the most difficult of arts, that of living with others. We do not all possess those desired qualities and talents which make giants in the world of great events, but we all know those qualities of generosity, sympathy, and courage which go to compose an admirable person. These qualities are born with us. In some individuals they lie dormant, but when exercised a bit, they develop and grow into powerful characteristics of great magnetism. Therefore, whether or not we become vocational successes we can all strive to become successful in our daily contacts. ' For thepast two decades the world has been caught up in a terrifying maelstrom of social and economic upheaval. In Europe, since the time of the first world war, it has been a period of continual change and insecurity. The map of Europe has been continually altered. Kingdoms which the world once considered invincible have tottered and fallen before the new regime. New ideas, philosophies, and an entirely new order of life have been introduced into many of the great countries of Europe. Old ideas of democracy and all that that word implies have been swept out, and with democracy has gone much of art, religion, and literature. During the past decade our own country has been plunged into a serious financial tangle. Strangely enough, it seems that when all our depression trouble hit us, everyone became over money-conscious, until we, as well as the dictator-run countries, are in danger of forgetting the arts, and all those things which have no dollar sign conspicuously attached. There is an old proverb, which runs: "The best things in life are free." It has never been disputed. But how many Americans do you suppose really believe it? There is still the appreciation of art, music, good books, and na- ture, with her countless secrets and phenomena, and all these within our reach. just waiting for intelligent appreciation. Europeans had long since cultivated their appreciation and tastes in these fields of enjoyment, and in pre-war days appeared to derive more pleasure from life, and to produce, on the whole, much more real art, and literature of lasting value than we Americans. This. of course, can be attributed to the fact that European culture is old and rich, while American culture, in comparison, is yet in the formative stage. Our motto applies to nations as well as to people. As one individual suc- ceeds in something at which another fails, so one country succeeds in aspects of life in which another fails. In other words, Europe has succeeded culturally in the past, where we Americans have failed. However, at present we have a ghastly example of Europe's failure to retain her peace, whereas our United States has so far succeeded. Now, on the eve of our graduation, it is worth while to reflect that often those interests to which we Americans refuse to de- vote much of our time and energies, because of a lack of Hnancial remuneration, would afford us a great deal of sincere pleasure, if we entered into them with the right spirit. It is also true that in such troublous times we all have an ur- gent need of a temporary escape, or release. one hundred three r 11 The Grand Duchess Marie of Russia writes in a recent article of hers about one Petroff, whom she describes as 'ithe most unforgettable character I ever met." She became acquainted with Petrolf at the beginning of the Russian Revolution, in 1917. He was an orderly in her hospital. Nearly all his ef- forts were directed toward making life more pleasant for the wounded soldiers. He had his own job as orderly, which he did faithfully and skillfully, but his own pleasure and escape was to buy old books, particularly Bibles, rebind them, and distribute them among those. who would appreciate them. All during the early days of the revolution, Petroff would hide away in the safety of a base- ment cubby-hole in the hospital and there sit, and with skill and calm bind and beautify books which would go into the hands of people whose spirit they would heal. He was succeeding in something at which almost everyone fails-he was preserving beauty and goodness in the midst of horror and suf- fering. The Grand Duchess Marie stated, "I remember him most vividly of all the personalities I have known, not because he bound books in a hospital hide- away, not because he saved my life, but for the same reason the world will be looking for his like again, during and after this new war of 1940. For it is the Petroffs who redeem, say one-millionth of one per cent, the bombardment of cathedrals, the burning of libraries, the destruction of Beauty, and man's brutality to man." Although we graduates must realize that our particular life-work is prob- ably the most important thing, for a well-rounded life it should not subordi- nate all other interests. With the present world situation throwing- the United States into the position of possibly the last stronghold of the arts, we should de- velop, if not a skill for some of the arts, at least an interest in them. In doing this, we shall not only be Ending genuine pleasure and deriving real value from our efforts, but we shall be doing our small share toward preserving for the world those arts, that culture, and those ideas and ideals which have such a dis- tressing need of being championed. At any rate, in all phases of our life, whether public or private, we should strive for success. There is a line in Tennyson's poem Ulysses which should spur us toward our goal in any phase of life. It expresses the unconquerable spirit of the hero urging on his men to final achievement: "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." And when, sometime in our later life, we look back and review the suc- cesses and failures of our life, we should stop to remember this very wise proverb: "Everyone succeeds in something at which another fails." -4 xv. ,X .4 1 ' 4 'Q f AA can-is zr. X, cms hundred four Valedictory WOMEN IN BUSINESS It has been only in recent years that women have played an influential part in business. It can be said that the Industrial Revolution in the latter part of the eighteenth century was the basis of the transition of women from the home into other economic fields. Her work in the home was being gradually taken from her into the factories, so that it became natural for her to turn her inter- ests away to more independent thoughts. But really the introduction of women in business came at the time when the telephone switchboard and the typewriter were introduced, about 1880. A little later in the century the un- rest of women was shown even more by the beginning of the suffrage move- ment, The women of this Victorian Age rebelled against being limited and were desirous' of matching their skill with men in politics and business. Home- making used to be the only destiny for women, but now they have proved their value in other work, Many of the successful business women of today have found that secre- tarial work has opened to them the door to many varied careers. This work to any girl with commercial training can be what you might call an exploratory field in which she can decide what she would like to do. For instance, a girl might enterbanking in a secretarial capacity and ind by what little contact she had with property through banking transactions, that she would rather spe- cialize in real estate. The same could be very true with a girl doing legal work. The career of Lottie L. Crawford is a very good illustration of the varied career a secretary may achieve. She grew up and graduated from high school in San Diego, and then became a stenographer for the Food Administration. Later she became secretary for a banker and then a lawyer. These varied types of work were very helpful in her final decision to enter the real estate business. This was not the extent of her ambition, for she had aspirations of becoming a distinguished woman in business. Her ambition was realized just recently, for she is now the only feminine member of the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers, an honor that requires training and ability. It can truly be said that her success was based on secretarial work. Better known to most people is Helen Woodward, the author of the book Through Many Windows. This very successful business woman attributes her start in office work to seeing a future in the use of the graphophone, when it one hundred Jive was in its experimental stage, a machine working on the same principle as the modern Ediphone or Dictaphone. She did all types of stenographic and secre- tarial work in a book factory, but in all her contacts, she was urged on with the desire to do advertising copy. In her secretarial Work, she was naturally in a first-hand position to bring her writing ability to the notice of her superiors. One day she was able to give her employer a Very good advertising scheme for selling his books. This could be called the beginning of her rise to fame, but more accurately, being an enterprising secretary was the basis of her success. To make a success of your life in secretarial work does not always mean winning fame. I read of one woman whose secretarial work was chiefly a means of making money to lead a very romantic and exciting life. She is Lillian Schoedler, a very capable and interesting woman, who has throughout her life made it a point to satisfy the urge to leave her work without a care and to go vagabonding all over the world. She really did not have to travel to meet front-page celebrities, for when she assisted Mr. Filene, the well-known Boston merchant, she came in contact through her work with such notables as Lincoln Steffens and Eleanor Roosevelt. Secretarial work for Marguerite Le Hand, President Roosevelt's personal secretary, has proved to be a career in itself. It must be very thrilling to meet the important officials that come from abroad as well as from our own country. She is the President's indispensable right hand and adviser in all political and personal matters. Loyalty is to her the first virtue, and she certainly has proved faithful to her ideal. So far, I have given illustrations of how a secretary can look upon a career "through many windows." Now let us consider the careers of women in 'busi- ness who have made a place for themselves without the benefit of commercial training. The real cause for amazement is the various lines these independent business women have entered. Their vocations go from one extreme to the other. For instance, there is Helena Rubinstein, the famous beauty culturist, and then Lillian Gilbreth, the successful industrial engineer. The careers of these two different women were really destined for them, Miss Rubinstein had a family background of thirty doctors, many of them dermatologists. A study of different types of skin became her specialty, and then she started in on a small scale selling her cosmetics to friends. She is now the most widely known beauty expert in the world. With Mrs. Gilbreth, it was also a matter of both choice and destiny that she became an industrial engineer. When her husband was Presi- dent of the Gilbreth, Incorporated, she chose of her own accord to assist him with his work, and it was just natural that after his death she succeeded him and proved to be a very proficient engineer herself. Being a cabinet member or doing newspaper work is not directly con- nected With a secretarial career, but it can be classified under the general heading of business. A talk. on famous and successful women in business in America would be incomplete without mentioning Dorothy Thompson, the well-known columnist, and Frances Perkins, the first woman cabinet member. Of all these successful women in business, I believe Frances Perkins can be acclaimed the greatest. She has worked her way into politics, a field which does not fre- quently welcome women. Even more to her credit is having the stamina to overlook the ridicule of the press, the A. F. of L., and the C. I. O. on her labor measures. It is also enlightening to know about Dorothy Thompson. Al- though she has had an extensive education, Miss Thompson says that her achievement is due to "learning the trade by trial and error," by being self- taught. and by being convinced of her own potentialities. This quality of self-confidence applies not only to women in business, but to everyone in this whole wide world, who wants to reach his objective. There one hundred sm: is the old saying, "A man may become great if he doesn't believe in a here- after: he may become great if he doesn't believe in God: but he never can be great if he doesn't believe in himself:" This reminds me of a story I heard the other day of a young man who was visiting the Dionne quintuplets. Nat- urally he showed a great interest in the character of the different sisters and asked the nurse which of the girls was the smartest. Before the nurse could respond, a little voice in back of him said "Marie" After the young man had recovered from his amazement, he asked the little girl what her name was, and she said, "Marie" Personally, I think Marie sounds a little bit like a spoiled child, but from another angle, her self-confidence can be considered a character quality that will be invaluable throughout her life. Even people many years her elder have not attained sufficient faith in themselves. To read and hear about famous people should not be the extent of our ambitions, but we should try to cultivate the desire for greatness, not only for personal distinction, but for the welfare of mankind. It would be well for us graduates to think over this formula for a successful career--"one part excite- ment, one part luck, to every tive parts pluck." Mr. Tracey and Members of the Board of Education: We are proud of our school. It has inspired us with the ambition to do our best work, and we appreciate the privilege of having been able to attend one of the best equipped schools in New England. Mr. Nesmith and Members of the Faculty: Mere thanks would be small compensation for the tolerance and considera- tion you have so willingly extended us for the past four years. We shall ap- preciate your help even more as time goes on, and we hope that as we leave this school you will feel that your efforts have not been in vain. Parents: Your loving guidance and sacrifices will always be remembered and we hope to show our gratitude by conscientiously trying to make the most of our- selves and our opportunities. Classmates: Just now as our school year ends, most of us think of the hard work, but in years to come we shall look back at the happy days and the pleasures of school life will be ever in our memories. At this time of graduation a new Challenge comes to us, for we are leaving school to enter a world that requires one hundred per cent achievement, or perfection. Let us accept this Challenge and resolve to conquer. DAISY M.
