Rodman School March 2, 1909 Scientific "Cark", the handsome Swede, is our well-liked president. As an athlete, he has left little to be desired. "Cark" has the un- usual distinction of being a four-letter man. Vermont is for- tunate in getting such a good athlete. President last two years Representative at Student Council Convention Freshman Baseball, Basketball Squad '24, '25 Basketball Varsity '25, '26g Capt. Varsity Basketball '26, '27 Football Varsity '26, Baseball Varsity '26 Soccer Varsity '25, '26 Vermont 927 Peg ' "Handsome" New Bedford Mass James B. Congdon School September 80 1900 College Webstel himself would lack words to describe "Peg," Besides being our Valedictoixan she is by far the sweetest girl in the class and one of the most charming. It is not often that one finds such u combination of intelligence, beauty, and personality. We axe sule that Smith will be as proud to count Edith among its members as wc ale to count her among ours. NEW BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL VICE PRESIDENT CONSTANCE MACOMBER CHASE "Connie" New Bedford, Mass. Clarence A. Cook School July 17, 1909 College "Connie" is one of our most popular members and has partici- pated in many school activities. A great deal of credit is due her for the excellent work she has accomplished on the "Alpha" staff, and we congratulate her for the many interesting short stories she has written. We all hope that she will follow the profession of the short story writer and wish her the best of success. Chairman of Student Council Student Loan Fund Committee, Six Dance Committee T. N.

Allen F. Wood School July 6, 1909 College "Chris" is the girls' representative to the Athletic Council, and she is practically the only girl in the class who has taken an active part in sports. She is rather quiet and reserved in classes with the exception of French, where she often bursts into giggles over one of Mr. Dupin's numerous jokes, or perhaps, one of Justin's. Secretary of Student Council, Varsity Basketball, '26 Hockey, '25, '26g Manager of Basketball Team '27 Girls' Representative to Athletic Council Wheaton SALUTATORIAN LYDIA ENOS DE MELLO New Bedford, Mass. Robert C. Ingraham School August 8, 1908 Commercial Lydia is a modest, but very intelligent young lady, which fact is proved by her receiving the distinction of being one of the honor students. May your future be overflowing with such honors, Lydia. Cercle Francais, Alphomega Science Clubg Glee Club l . Business 14 NEW BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL EBRD HONORS 1vKEm:R1cK A. MARTIN "Freddie" New Bedford, Mass. Clarence A. Cook School March 24, 1909 Commercial Oh, "Freddie", you cute, little thing! You certainly showed us what you can do by winning one of the honor places, and you are so young! What is the secret of your knowing so much about everyone of the subjects you take up? It is hard for us to be- lieve that you study all the timeg you're "not that kind of a boy!" However, we sincerely hope all your enterprises result in "A's" like your school-marks, "Freddie" Dramatic Club Business 4TH HONORS GERTRUDE PAGE SHATTUCK "Bluie" Philadelphia Robert C. Ingraham School August 21, 1909 College "Bluie" is another quiet, studious girl. She has participated in no school activities, but has spent the rare few minutes of her spare time at the Y. W. C. A. She is a firm believer in the saying, "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away," and a staunch enemy of Mr. Bates. Motto Committee Wheaton .Ivy wk CLASS OF JANUARY NINETEEN TWENTY-SEVEN 15 Gur Roster ALLAN ACOMB HAI!! New Bedford, Mass. Parker Street School March 25, 1909 Scientific "Al" is our handsome and good-natured blonde. He has shown much school spirit, and has been a loyal supporter of our athletic teams. We rather think he prefers girls to studies. We know he is a gentleman, although he does not prefer blondes. Color League Basketball , ROBERT ALLEN, JR. HB0b!9 New Bedford, Mass. Thomas R. Rodman April 14, 1909 Scientific "Bob's" two favorites are tennis and Women. He has previously devoted many hours on the former, but the latter now seems to have the preference. He is also quite a musician as he blows a wicked trombone. Banquet Committee Music Committee for Vaudeville Show Band and Orchestrag Varsity Tennis Color League Basketball Colby A V MARIAN BARROLL ttMary!! Chelsea, Mass. Hosea M. Knowlton School April 10, 1907 Commercial Marian, so bashful and good-natured, would be a credit to any class. What we would do without you, is difficult to decide. Thankful for our good fortune in just having you, "Mary", we sincerely hope the days to come will be joyful ones. Music Appreciation Business NEW BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL STANLEY KENNETH BIGELOW KiBig7l New Bedford, Mass. Clarence A. Cook School July 26, 1908 College "Stan" has one "Big" handicap, and that is his bashfulness. llemember, "The bigger they are, the harder they fall." To see him walking leisurely through the corridors, one can never imagine how fast he is on the tennis court. He is a second Bill Tilden, and we wish him the best of success for his future. Chairman of 8's Dance Committeeg T. N. T. Basketball Color League, '24, '25, '26 Brown University ALICE BARROW "Al" "Mischief" Woonsocket, Mass. Mt. Pleasant School August 1, 1907 Commercial Alice--in other words-sport, Even that very significant word, "sport", is not broad enough to include her enthusiastic, fun- loving, and business-like spirit. Not too conscientious of her lessons, but a good worker--not a social butterfly, but a good mixer. If she continues as she has begun, there will be no limit to the things she may accomplish. Good luck, Alice! Class Book Committee, Dramatic Clubg T. N. T. Business Then Boston Normal Art CATHERINE ORVILLE BRADSHAW ilCal7Y New Bedford, Mass. Middle Street School April 17, 1907 Normal Preparatory Course "Cal"-a good sport. She has a fine sense of humor and a pleasing personality and for this reason has made a host of friends while in New Bedford High School.

James B. Congdon School May 23, 1009 Normal Preparatory Course "Ronnie"-our collegian, peppy, scrappy, a good sport. She has shown great will power by losing forty-one pounds.

Special Chorusg Glee Club Assistant Librarian of Special Chorus and Glee Clubg Senior Vaudeville Showg Class Day Committee Simmons College 3 ' MARJORIE COVILLE rcMargerv New Bedford, Mass. Clarence B. Cook School June 29, 1908 Normal Preparatory Course "Marge"hour business woman. Never did we see such a busy young lady running around to committees, glee club, debating and the like. The wonderful part of it all is that she always has her lessons done. It's a gift! 4 Secretary of Debating Societyg Glee Club Senior Debating Society ' ' Miss Wheel0ck's Kindergarten School GERTRUDE BYER COHEN ' ' "Gert" "Dootie" New Bedford, Mass. Mt. Pleasant School March 22, 1909 College We were afraid that New York was going to swallow "Dootie" up this semester, but we were pleasantly surprised to have her back to graduate with us. However we can't keep her forever, as the Metropolis is soon going to open her arms and take "Gert" away from New Bedford. New York University - - NEW BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL DOROTHY MAE COLE llDOt!! New Bedford, Mass. Thomas R. Rodman School December 29, 1908 Normal Preparatory Course Pretty and athletic "Dot" reminds us of the young lady romp- ing on the wrapper of Kellogg's Bran. She is an extremely busy person and we have an idea--sh, it's a secret-that she spends most of her time counting her "dates," Of course, they're with Ralph.

Sponsor Framingham State Normal EDNA CROMPTON llEdY! New Bedford, Mass. Robert C. Ingraham School September 27, 1908 College "Ed" should be placed in a glass cage and put in a museum for future generations to gaze upon with awe and respect. She is the only girl we know of who has not bobbed her hair and spends a large percentage of her time helping the church. Girls like Edna, nowadays, are few and far apart. Glee Clubg T. N. T. Bridgewater IRMA CUSHMAN New Bedford, Mass. Parker Street School June 29, 1909 College Irma is an exceedingly smart girl and just missed being an honor student. She is a Latin shark and can translate the most diflicult passages into readable English, an act which few of us can perform. We never hear much from her, but we all like her, and believe that she does not possess an enemy in the world. Orchestrag Motto Committee MAYBELLE BERNICE CASSILY New Bedford Mass. Robert C. Ingraham School June 26 1909 College We alwavs associate one of those sarcastic glances, and a My Cow with Maybelle. However, they are made in jest and have not prevented her from winning many friends. If you were tc ask anyone their opinion of our classmate, that person would immediately answer, "She's a darn good sport." New Bedford Mass. Allen F.

James B. Congdon School March 14, 1908 College One hardly knows "Joe" is in school, he is so quiet and unas- suming.

College ff JIS: !f 9 Ls CLASS OF JANUARY NINETEEN TWENTY-SEVEN Class History By ROBERT L. GENENSKY OW that the graduation of the January Class of '27, so long awaited for by its constituents, has faded into the endless eternity of other graduations, it is fitting to pause and review the accom- plishments of these last four years. The period of 1923-1927, allotted to our higher education, has contained in its history, a memorable record of struggle and achievement, and we, as a class, have reason to rejoice for having been able to witness this worthy ambition of ours. It is a remembered day, that windy day of early September, wlfen, scarcely out of our milk-bottle age, three hundred credible, astonished children, we entered the auditorium to receive our instructions in high school procedure. Much we marvelled at the material greatness of the edifice, and the prospect of being educated on so vast and important a scale detracted much from our blithe and cheerful spirit. Soon we grew less mindful of the gibes and grandeur of the upper classmeng our own self-importance was leaking out. We deigned to accept the Senior invitation for the Freshman Reception, and united in groups we beheld the spectacle of a high school dance. Some of us there really tried to dance, others held themselves aloof from the dignified Seniors, some were bold enough to converse with the upper classmen, and still others merely guzzled down two small cups of Mr. Bates' patented and self- styled beverage, misrepresented as "punch", andmade a hasty exit, dreaming of "what fools these Seniors be." The intermediate years-Sophomore and Junior-passed quickly and smoothly. Our only visible means of being aware of our approach to seniority lay in the advancement of our seating plan arrangements at Friday morning assemblies. We all felt a feeling of triumph, sitting in the orchestra section of the auditorium, and so escaping the ire of the Friday morning orator, as he flung invectives upon "you of the gallery and upper shelf!" Who can forget those Friday morning sessions! Those were the glorious day when the faculty omitted periods, and when with proper coaching a venerable speaker would talk for three- quarters of an hour at a stretch! Then a Friday morning was a thrilling gamble-a gamble of 6 to 1 that the period for which you prepared your lesson would be omitted. Throughout these four years the Class of '27 has given liberally of its members to promote the success of N. B. H. S. in athletic and scholas- tic achievement. On the cinder path, William Macy, Joseph DeMello, and "Charley" Silveira, have made the track team a real competitive sporting organization. "Bob" Allen lent his tennis prowess for the success of the tennis team of '25-'26, and he and "Stan" Bigelow could be seen daily wielding the racquets at the public courts. A leading figure in all and every school sport, is "Carky" Sundin- having prominently won his letters in basketball, baseball, football, and soccer. In the latter sport, Leo Bessette and "Joe" DeMe1lo were pre- NEW BEDFORD HIGH SCHOOL eminently engaged. Soccer, comparatively new in school athletic an- nals, proved one of the most popular games on the field. It had sufficient reason to be popular-considering the many excellent victories the team gained in inter-scholastic play. Girl sports, in the main, have combined themselves almost entirely in the person of "Chris" Nelson. Besides being one of the chief factors in the success of the Varsity Basketball team as well as of the Hockey Teams, Christine was manager of the former team and the girls' rep- resentative to the Athletic Council. Football-the greatest drawing card of American sports, has cer- tainly exercised its drawing power on the class of '27. For the formation of the team, Sundin filled the position of quarterback, aided by Elliott Ricketson in the position of left guard. Roger Turgeon, "Bill" Stratton fof hammer-throwing and shot-putting famej, "Ike" Davidow, and "Al" Lopes tightened the combination with excellent playing. Turning from athletic to scholastic and social activities, we recog- nize easily the fact that the fame of the class rests principally on the latter school functions. As oiiicers of the Dramatic Club, M. Justin Herman has filled the office of president, "Connie" Chase that of Vice President, and Alyce Barrow that of Treasurer. It is notable to observe that the gratifying success of the society was truly effected in the fine reception given to the play, "The Goose Hangs High"-one of the best productions in the club's history. From its folds we have reason to mention several finished actors in the persons of Elliott Ricketson, Hester Turner, Lucille Hemphill, Marjorie Ferguson, Pauline Newing- ton, Gertrude Haran and "Dot" Toomey. In debating no less than in dramatics, the Alpha Debating Society has included its president, Robert Genensky, who has won for the class the inter-class debating championship, and who was a member of the Varsity Debating Team, Marjorie Covill, its secretary, and Justin Herman, its vice president, and who was also a member of the Varsity Debating Team, and again Dorothy Toomey, its defender in the inter- class debates. Excluding the above two organizations, our class in its Senior year has contributed a memorable list of officers to the various clubs of the school as follows: Of the Alpha, its three editors, Constance Chase Justin Herman, Robert Genensky, and Isaac Davidow, Assistant Busi- ness Manager, of the now extinct Writers' Club, Lois Huddy, Justin Herman, and Pearl Langloisg of the Alpha-Omega Science Club, Nor- mand Roy, Robert Genensky, Dorothy Toomey, and Lydia DeMello, and of the Glee Club, "Dot" Cole, Doris Smith, and Pauline Newington. Besides the above, with our class graduates the highest ranking officer of the R. O. T. C., Lieutenant-Colonel Octavio Modesto, and Lieutenants Hargreaves, Rose, and Rainford. The orchestra and band, will be af- fected by the graduation of ten of its members. In the Cercle Francais, the officers, Lauretta Janson, Felix Fournier, and Evelyn DeMello will henceforth be conspicuous by their absence. Of the many notable events of our Senior year, none can be so worthy to the school at large as the establishment of the Students' Loan Fund-a fund solely devoted for the purpose of helping financial- ly, pupils who could not otherwise continue in high school. The fund was started almost entirelly through the efforts of the members of the Senior Class, and to prove their good faith in the idea, our class raised CLASS OF JANUARY NINETEEN- TWENTY-SEVEN for itself the distinction of being the first class in the history of the school that has contributed its class gift to so worthy and conscientious an object. The foregoing brief and very epitomized social history of the class of '27 is concluded. And now we turn to the last and most noteworthy lap of our high school course-the Senior year. The first important event of the year was the election of our class officers. Those honored were Carlton Sundin, presidentg Constance Chase, vice president, Edith Hanson, secretary, and Christine Nelson, treasurer. It was now our turn to promote a freshman reception, and to raise the wherewithal to produce the entertainment, we invoked the 7's dance. It now became the difficult duty of Christine Nelson to extort class dues, after which extortion, our financial condition was such as to enable us to stage the Reception. How different-being a host and being a guest! To the incoming freshmen we attempted to be condes- cending, patronizing, even friendly-and it is a fact that we far more enjoyed giving the Reception than we enjoyed receiving it. As 8's we inherited the school and its dominions, and ran off our first big success as a vodvil show, under the striking title of T. N. T. Then followed brilliant days, joyful days, the time that is the richest heritage of the Senior. Came our exclusive Prom, filled with the interest only a class dance can bring. Pictures, class books,-class pins, class meetings. Finally Class Day, bizarre trimmings of Crimson and White, exultation, the "key to the school," our snake parade thru the audi- torium with hundreds of envious eyes upon us-Class Day entertain- ment, music, dialogue, speeches, etc. That was the life! Yells, cheers, sentimental studes rushing about, seeking to get their books auto- graphed by the entire Faculty! - Our banquet proved and demonstrated the satisfaction that can come with a hearty meal, a fine program of giftories, prophecies, speeches, lectures and dancing, and the happiness that is prevalent in a class reunion. And as we left the New Bedford Hotel that night we all were filled with a fuller feeling of companionship and friendship. And then that last notch in our high school career-Commence- ment. Impressed with the moment of the occasion, supremely dignified, we sat thru the formalities of the graduating program. Somehow in every one of us, there passed a tinge of remorse, remorse that, that evening was to be the last whereupon we would ever be assembled together on the platform of our Alma Mater. We made a thousand and one resolutions there, listening to the advice of President Lewis of Washington University. All too soon the proceedings were over, me- chanically we answered the roll call, and received that invaluable parchment, our diploma, certificate of the successful completion of a four year's course in high school education. And so it ends. The Class of '27 has joined that body called Alumni. Looking back over the past, we see clearly that the old Alma Mater has dealt gently with us. As a class we are now but temporarily dissolvedg we shall meet again as a class and renew the experiences of old. And above all, let us not forget that spirit of the New Bedford High School, to which we owe the advancement and culture, and friendship, with which these four glorious years have so abundantly en- dowed us!
