[Nine] SWr ' LIBRARY [Eleven] TO THE FACULTY As a class for the past few years we have been given over to the tender mercies of the New Bedford Textile school, which has in turn through the ministrations of you endeavored to store our minds with the art of textile manufacturing. There is no doubt that in the past many of us have endured conflicts and quarrels, mostly through misunderstanding, but we realize now our mistakes and gladly place on record cur gratitude to you for your rendered services. We hope by our future lives we may show our appreciation to you. THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 1925. [Tzvclvc] WILLIAM SMITH Principal ( ) Friend ! O best of friends ! Thy absence more Than the impending- night, darkens the landscape o ' er Mr. Smith assumed the office of principal of the school just before this class ' s entering - and we are honored at being the first freshman class to come under his supervision. As students, we have recognized his exceptional ability as Principal. in correlating his work with our everyday lives, in such a manner, as to make our work more interesting and vital. Therefore we are grateful to have been under his guidance for three years. As Alumni, may we live up to the ideals which you have set before us and prove our gratitude. [Thirteen] SAMUEL HOLT Assistant Principal Designing Dept. Mr. Holt has had many years experience both in weaving and designing. He gained his textile knowledge attending Manchester Technical School and Cheshire Institution for Weaving and Designing. Coining to America, he engaged in various positions pertaining to weaving and designing until he became assistant in weaving and designing in the Lowell Textile School. His health then failed him and he went to Florida for a rest. When the New Bedford Textile School was built he was offered a position in the Weaving and Designing Department, which he accepted. The school is to be congratulated on having such an able instructor among the faculty. He is a widely known authority on the subject of weav- ing and designing. [Fourteen! MAURICE H. CROMPTON Mechanical Engineering Department .Mr. Crompton came to this school in 1914 as an instructor in the Mechanical Department and was promoted to head of the department in 1917. By virtue of his varied experience in some of the leading mechanical plants through the United States, he is well fitted for the position. He has made an extensive study along mechanical lines which he teaches, and practically all the courses in his department are original with him. His ability to explain to the minutest degree, problems that confront the student, has made him one of the school ' s leading teaching assets. [I ' iftcen] FRED E. BUSBY, B. S. Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Dept. M, I. T. ' 97 Mr. Busby has been the head of the Chemistry Department for 6years and he deserves a great deal of credit for the manner in which he presents a hard subject so that it can be clearly understood. Mr. Busby has had a vast wealth of practical experience acquired in the laboratories and finish- ing plants of New England, which combined with the theory gained at M. I. T. has made him an authority on the subjects which he teaches. Ever willing to spend time with a backward student has gained for him the reputation of being a patient and efficient instructor. Aside from his duties as an instructor he has ably helped the Athletic Association in the capacity of chairman of the Faculty Advisory Board. [Sixteen] DANIEL H. TAFT Carding and Spinning Dept. Mr. Taft came to this institution in 1920 and after serving- as an assis- tant in the carding- and spinning department for three years, took charge of the artment as successor to Mr. Smith in 1922. Mr. Taft has had 25 years experience in mills located in New England and thereby gained a good ■ ictical knowledge of cotton yarn manufacturing, which he ably imparts to the student in a straightforward and intelligent manner. Mr. Taft started work as a sliver lap tender and by the dint of hard labor and study has held all positions of responsibility up to and including carding overseer. Before coming to the school, Mr. Taft was overseer of carding in the Shipment Knitting Mills for seven years. [Seventeen] LEWIS G. MANNING N. B. T. S. 1909 Knitting Department Mr. Manning became head of the knitting department three years ago as successor to the late Mr. Frank Payton. Previous to coming here he has held executive positions in some of the foremost knitting " mills in the country. Mr. Manning is a former student of the school having been graduated with the class of 1909. The knowledge he gained at the school combined with the practical experience derived in the knitting mills has gained for him an expert understanding of the intricacies of the art of knitting. Of late he has become interested in knitting of Rayon and has conducted a vast amount of research, with the result that he is now considered an authority in this line. He has been interested in the sports of the school and was the coach of one of the best basket ball teams the school has ever turned out. [Eighteen] WILLIAM ACOMB Weaving Dept. and Warp Preparation Department Mr. Acomb has been with the school several years both as an evening 1 day instructor. He took over the position of head of the department on the retirement of the late Mr. Yates, former head of the department. He is an instructor who has had many years of experience in designing and weaving- i n the various mills in this city and Europe and the knowledge which he has so gained has only been derived after years of study and perseverance. His knowledge of mill conditions has made him a very efficient and able teacher and his ability to impart to the student this knowledge cannot help but be an inspiration to them when they enter the mills. Always abreast of the times, he has introduced many new ideas into the curriculum of the Weaving Department.

Grimshaw John Skinkle MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Adam Bayreuther William T. Walton [Twenty] [Twenty-one J HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1925 IMILAR to the gathering of a Scottish clan in the days gone by came the members of the class of 1925. From near and far came the happy throng, each with the wild desire to master the textile game. Mr. Holt was the first member of the faculty with whom an acquaintance was established. Our first favorable impression of him was of short duration as he informed us that our hard earned jack must now be exchanged for analysis books, pick glasses, etc. Those men taking the chemistry course fared little better as they were parted from ten bucks to cover destruction of laboratory materials. The ensuing weeks saw the boys gradually becoming accustomed to the various duties of a Super- intendent, Treasurer, or the like. In cloth analysis and designing we soon learned that a dent was something more than a mar on a polished surface, also a reed did not mean a blade of tall grass growing by a brook. The class tackled the weaving problem for a fall. The boys were given wrenches and immediately set upon the task of destroying the looms. We — " losed " — all the gears, and broke the cast — irun — levers and cams. We then assembled the loom with the remaining parts without having lost any of the proverbial " ten golden minutes set with the sixty diamond seconds. ' ' It did not take us long to realize that a chance to catch up on slumber, lost over a week-end, was afforded on Monday mornings during carding and spinning lectures. As time went on Mr. Taft made clear to our sub-conscious minds the ill treatment to which cotton was subjected. During this period athletics took a great deal of our time. Football claimed the following, Ramos, Novick, Rigby, Novick, Hayden. I might say without a word of a boast the class did much to bring sports on a par with other schools of like standing. Later on the basketball team and the baseball team issued their call for players and our class contributed generously to the said sports. The teams were coached by Messrs. Grimshaw, Manning and Bayreuther and they did their work well. Praise may not go far but the results speak for themselves. With half the year gone the instructors tried to eke out their revenge for past indifferences by pre- senting us with our mid-year exams. Needless to say we still retained the upper hand by passing same with flying colors. The remainder of the year was spent in instilling in the mind of many a concrete head the basis of good textile manufacturing. The end of the term saw the granting of a well earned [Twcuty-two ] cation. The knowledge gained in the first year was well put to use during the said vacation in the art of sweeping and oiling at SI 5 per. Fall brought the buys back to school and work started with vim and vigor. Double cloths and lenos presented their difficulties to us. It is said even unto this day their mysteries are still unsolved. At this time Mr. Crompton tried to convince us that steam boilers were essential to the running of any plant. Of course most oi us knew that they were found in all mills hut the impression that they are needed, to give the engineer a pay each week and a place must be provided for null operators to sneak in a smoke now and then on company time, still prevails. Monday and Friday afternoons were pleasantly spent sitting on the radiators in the chem lab watching the contents of the dye pots merrily boil. If time hung heavy on our hands the chemistry representatives of the class entertained with their novel pranks and idiocisms. Father Time then called in the second year and vacation once more loomed into sight. Before bringing to a close this history of the class of 1925 it is absolutely necessary to make a brief mention of our more or less famed members. Noisey Novick of the Chem. Lai " ). Hitch Papkin. the hoy who ' ll fix it for you. The three musketeers, namely Beaumont. Clancy and Dupont. Ping and Paul between whom honors are even. Charlie Young, purveyor of Textiles and Chop Suey. Farmer Howard of Acushnet. Blake and Sun, competitors in art. Tsao — China ' s Prince of Wales. Paradis — Mark Antony ' s only rival. The third year came round much too soon and found us grinding the axe preparatory to the finishing f our conquest. The ever loyal instructors smoothed down the rough edges of our learnings and put us in a position where we hope we shall be able to conquer the textile world and reach the top. STAN. ARM IT AGE.

" If I were an artist what a wonderful picture I could paint, of the tired student in a " Hup " taking the bumps on the bridge, it wouldn ' t have to be labelled in any way, we would all know it was " Stan. " For what was the bridge built anyway? " Stan " has always been to the fore in school life, both in studies- and social life, besides playing guard on the football team in his freshman year. As secretary of his class he has performed his duties well, and the class history written by him calls for much praise. WILLIAM BEAUMONT " Bill- Assistant Editor Delta Kappa Phi General Cotton Our genial Mr. Beaumont. The admirable quality about Bill is his seriousness, and his ability to apply himself to what ever task he undertakes. Although he had plenty of experience in the mill before he came to school, he realized that he didn ' t know it all, and this attitude has made him popular with the teachers and students alike. He is one of the few, that the rest of the students envy when final reports are read. But to victor goes the spoils, and Bill has certainly worked and is deserving of every honor he attains. We haven ' t seen much of him outside of school hours, but as a little inside dope we ' ll add, that as assistant editor, his stabilizing influence saved many seniors from getting slammed, more than they already have. [.Twenty-six] WENDELL BLAKE Taunton 1 liu ' h i (laKee ( jcncral ( ot It in Art Edit or c » f the Fabricator ur artist and cartoonist hails from the big city of Taunton. Even the vain efforts of a divisions culinary art have tailed to make Blake plump and chubby. His usual method of expressing- surprise, con- sternation, fear or any other emotion is simply " (josh.

MARTIN CLANCEY " Clancev General Cotton Clancey is dear to all our hearts fo r the thrilling stories he tells " of back home in Cohoes. " He has strived valiantly to go Mr. Smith one better with his tales of " when I was in the mill. " but so far has been unlucky as he has been handicapped by the lack of experience. Since coming to the school he has joined the ranks of the Benedicts, and is well on the road to Happiness. ith the coming of graduation he finds that he has another road to hit and that is the road to Success. With his practical experience, combined with his theoretical knowledge and the ability to stick to a job, it seems as though he is bound to go high on the ladder of Success. {.Twenty-sex r;il New Bedford High EMERY DUPONT " Dupe " Banquet Committee General Cotton And I learned about Spinnin ' from him. " This may not be strictly from Kipling but it conveys the idea that Dupont often gave us the ins and outs of spinning and its side issues, for as you perhaps know he was a spinner long before Prohibition. Having been in positions of responsibility in the mill, and having put his time at school to the best advantage it is reasonable to expect that he will land a good position immediately upon graduation. So, " Dupie " old kid, don ' t forget that Textile turns out some very good men and in case you are looking for a worthy assistant, 1197 Purchase St. is the place to find him. New Bedford Hisrh PAUL HAYDEN " Polly " Delta Kappa Phi General Cotton Football 1 Dance Committee Banquet Committee Speed isn ' t always Polly ' s strongest point but he always manages to catch the last car from Mt. Pleasant after calling hours. Without Polly, Bobbie would have no rival and all the wrenches would be in on time, but once in a while Polly runs short of English sayings and finds it necessary to hold one in order to enlarge his vocabulary. All the luck in the world, Polly, and be sure your overseers are all Jickies. [Twenty-eight] New Bedford 1 lisrh JAMES B. HOLLAS a t J J im Class President Phi Psi General Cotton He desires nothing - more than that famous saying of his, " Don ' t forget your bo-OO-oks. " " Jim " is the product of that wild red light district, namely, Mt. Pleasant. We have always understood him as shy, demure, reserved young fellow until we found " still waters run deep. " Always faithful to whatever task he undertakes, but never failing to take a nice polite smack at our genial pedagogy, whenever the chance avails itself. As Class President, Jim has carried us successfully through the year of 1924-25 and our history will remain as being a very " clever " class. Just a little fatherly advice, Jim, be sure to get up on time to start the daily grind, they don ' t accept alibis in the mill. New Bedford High Delta Kappa Phi General Cotton ARTHUR HOWARD " Art " Class Treasurer This young man after showing them what was what at the High School, hied himself to our Textile school to get all the dope on the ins and outs of the mill game. This he has accomplished exceptionally well, ranking one of the highest in all his classes. Coming from the wild and wooly parts of Acushnet, he has made himself prominent at all our social affairs as connoisseur of the checking room. The country lite and fresh air has made him very good in this capacity. But it is as class treasurer that we will always remember him. Oi ! How he choked the shekels ! Judging him from the qualities he has already shown the world, it will be a short time before he reaches the top of the ladder to Success and best of all we feel positive that when he " arrives, " he will stav there. [Twenty-nine] YEI-SHAN HSU Nantung Textile Chinese Students Club Chinese Cotton Hsu is one of those boys who doesn ' t know when he has had enough. After studying at Nantung Textile he decided he would like a little more and so we find him in our class. He comes from the town Chekiang, the silk center of China, and is interested in silk. Looks as though we will find some new silk and cotton mixtures in the future. If Hsu puts as much time and energy in developing the cotton industry of China as he has in his studies at school, we can predict nothing but success for him. New Bedford High Football EDWARD RAMOS Phi Psi " Ed " Chemistry Jance Committee Sporting Editor Never mind trifles - - care killed a cat. Any Thursday evening you can find Ed stepping on the Fall River car. Hows not to play to cozy and come through straight with the dope. Ed sure keeps us posted on the boxing matches and the way he tosses a wet towel at Joe Novick you would swear he was a second Babe Ruth and Joe ' s head was home plate. We extend our best wishes Ed and when the Mill business goes bad we will all be around to you for a pass to your rink.

And that dark-eyed Spanish girl, how she will weep when he is thrust out into the cruel, cold world, away from that life of leisure into a future of work and dinner-pails. ' Stough.

Nathan is looking forward to the time when he will be establishing a Knitting Mill. This will be a Godsend to New Bedford as a large number of " blow hards " are predicting that cotton manufacturing is going south and New Bedford will be a deserted city. But this will be offset when " Pap " opens up his knitting mill, and the townspeople will take a new lease on life. He has already had his confidence looking over the situation, and if everything is favorable it looks as though he will amass a large fortune. Here ' s hoping you are successful and produce something new to revolu- tionize the " rolled socks " industry. [Thirty-tzvo] JOSEPH PARADIS Joe Delta Kappa Phi.

It must be a gift to be able to go through this life without a w r orry or care, and judging from all appearances he has succeeded in leaving this impression. Having wiled three beautiful years under the roof of dear old Textile, Allan must now embark upon the sea of Strife and Competition and if he succeeds in knocking down dollars as he has in knocking down hours, what a won- derful time he will have, working the adding machine. No reason in the world why he can ' t ; it is said that opposites attract, therefore we see on the horizon of the future, Allan as the stabilizing influence of a wild mill agent.

It was from this town that " Al " came and made his debut to the New Bedford Textile School in the fall of 1922, to acquire a better knowledge of how to become a Cotton Sampler. If you don ' t believe it you can wonder through the C. Y. P and see him pulling roving cans around the room.

In athletics Rig has participated in most all of them showing he is a live wire for the benefit of our Alma Mater. And without any doubt in future years he is bound to be very successful. In appreciation for your task just completed we extend our heartiest congratulations and best wishes for a very successful future. [Thirty- four] CHIA-TING SUN Chinese Students Club Nantung Textile " Sun " General Cotton rravelling thousands ol miles, from south of the shadow of the Greal Wall to this country, Sun took the longest ride of all to find ou1 what this country was doing in the way oi cotton manufacturing. The remark- able thing that " he did accomplish, was the mastering of the Yankee art of Slang. His earnestness in trying to learn American ways and his unfailing smile and sunn} personality have made him many good friends, lie is pretty nifty with the pen and has often entertained the gang with his drawing ' s. GEORGE N. TOM • ' in General Cotton St. Louis College Hawaii Once upon a time a dusky youth in Hawaii happened upon a book of Textiles while wandering- through a pineapple grove. How it came there no one knows, hut it is reported that one of Mr. Smith ' s little birds dropped it there. This youth after reading about the wonderful cotton cloths that could be made if one only knew how. pictured himself as a deliverer to the womenfolk of that famous little isle, who finding the shredded wheat they were accustomed to wearing, very unattractive. Thus we find Tom in here, having gained the necessary knowledge. already to go back and start the first mill in Honolulu. During the time he spent in Xew Bedford he has made a large number of friends through his musical attainments, he plays a hot ukelele. It was as a member of the famous Grimshaw ' s Hawaiian Troupe that the world at large first met him, having toured the country and appearing before the elite of aristocracy. Well Mister Tom if your mill should fail, you can always play that ukelele and keep the wolf from the door. Thirty-fivc ' ] WALTER C. C. TSAO " Walter " Chinese Students Club General Cotton Peking- Academy " Walter " is indeed one of the most popular Chinese students at the school. He is very straightforward when speaking to anyone and is always desirous of getting to the bottom of things. His manner of dress is all that it should be, and if anyone wants to know what the well-dressed man should wear, our suggestion is that you take a look at Walter. He is one of the best fans and supporters of school athletics, although not actively engaged in them. When Walter goes back home and starts manufacturing, the other manufacturers will have to watch their step because he intends to invent a couple of machines that will make the art of textile manufacture child ' s play. Catholic Uni. Wash. D. C. Holy Family High JOSEPH A. WARING " Tite Joe " Baseball 1 Delta Kappa Phi Chemistrv Joe is a quiet sort of a fellow who always feels that responsibility of his, an excellent student, but has a decided fondness for collecting lab. antiques. This co-worker suffers in pain for the beaucoup gear that he has misappropriated. When he makes his presence known desks are locked tightly. Joe patronizes the local terpsichore frequently without offering any donations. His lady friends, who are numerous, extending from coast to coast, Mattapoisett to Fort Phoenix, flock to a local dance hall to meet our fair Joe, who is always free from the clutches of tax collector. His many ambitions will be a credit to the " School Worth While, " it is expected to hear big things of Joe in the analytical world. Wish you luck Joe, remember your classmates when you have climbed the ladder of success. [Thirty-six Mi Hermon JAMES H. Y. WONG " | immie " Tennis Chinese Students Club General Cotton " I immie " came to this country from Shanghai, China, to learn the " Why ' s and Wherefores " of cotton manufacturing. He has done that and a few other things on the side. He is better known as the tennis champ of the schoo l, having defeated all comers in the tennis tournaments con- ducted by the Tennis Club and after he has made a couple of million, will probably be a member of the Davis Cup team. After leaving Textile school " J immie " intends to spend a year in the School of Commerce of the New York University where he will take up factory management. So when he goes back home he ought to have quite a few new ideas to give his father, who, by the way, is an alumnus of New Bedford Textile. Uni. of Honolulu JUN LUM YOUNG " Charlie " Class Vice President Chinese Club General Cotton Our business man extraordinary. Not content with being an ordinary student, " Charlie " started right in to be a successful business man. Hailing from Honolulu, the city of pineapples and few clothes, he made himself right at home in our fair city, although he missed the pineapples. When he goes to apply the knowledge that he picked up at N. B. T. S., he will have to go elsewhere than his " old home town " because there aren ' t any mills there. After a course in Business Administration at Boston University, he intends to go to China, where he can put to good use his knowdedge of Chinese customs and language coupled with his textile training. No doubt Charlie will succeed. [Thirty-seven] Holy Family High LEO WARING " Silent Lee " Delta Kappa Phi Chemistry " My clear Leo, if I. may call you such, " this little phrase is frequently mentioned within the panels of the Chemistry Lab., by all who know him as Silent Lee ; he is very active in keeping law and order among his class mates by settling every day discussions of intricate problems ; as for instance, preparation of Sulphur Dyes, dimensions of various atoms, how to become an excused Absentee and also to avoid Machine shop practise. Many more could be mentioned but due to the fact that space is limited an interview will be granted at your convenience. Success, Leo ; your class mates would like to hear from you when you are established permanently. [Thirty-eight] [Thirty -nine] Damascus Imperial MATHEW ALBAKRI " Al " Special Knitting Albakri, for the greater part of the time he was attending our worthy institution of learning, seemed to be the quietest little fellow that ever entered the portals of the afore-said instution. But after he made the trip to Lowell Textile as one of the loyal rooters for the basket ball team he was immediately enrolled in the society of " Regular Fellows. " As a knitter, he has no equal, and when he lands back in Araby with his sample book, the John Sheiks will be working their heads off trying to keep their harems well supplied with the lustrous hose that are dyed in colors rivaling Joseph ' s striped coat. And take it from one who knows, " Al " slings a mean dye pot. And when it comes to mixing dyes for milady ' s hose Al knows just what will please ; he is quiet but very observing. Georgja Tech.

In every IkkIy cil nn Track ien there is always one who is much younger than the rest, and he is usually spoken of as the " baby of the gang. " To " Kid " Kravetz goes this " title, " if it can he termed such. Having found the High School not exactly what he wanted he decided that he could put his efforts tn the best of advantage if he came to Textile and now we find him graduating. A very retiring young fellow by disposition, has made himself very popular by his ever willing attitude. On the track, however, this retiring youth is very far from being unaggressive. He has shown his heels to many a would-be Olympic aspirant. Good luck to you " old kid, " may your dollars all be good ones. Erasmus Hall High Special C. Y. P. ROBERT E. LIEBMANN " Liebie " Brooklyn.

He is also a graduate of the Philadelphia Textile, coming here to put the finishing touches on an already vast amount of knowledge. It is remarkable how a human head can hold so much. Most fellows find one Textile school a large enough dose to last them a life time. His venture into the automobile game drew a great deal of applause, but we must correct ourselves, that piece of junk wasn ' t an automobile. His shadow, the other half of the ' ' Siamese Twins, " maintains it was but " Liebie " showed good sense by not committing himself.

" The reason for all this ballyhooing is because in the time that " Chuck " has spent in Textile he has always been one of its shining lights. What would the results of all the basket ball games have been if " Chuck " hadn ' t been there. He never crashed his way into popularity ; he was shoved there by the ever grateful student body. Aside from his scholastic life " Chuck " is making a name for himself in the braiding trade. That mill that he and his father are running over in South Attleboro, will soon be on the lips of every blind man peddling shoe laces on the street corners. He will be their savior.

STEWART BURT [Forty-nine] [Fifty-one] FRESHMEN [Fifty-three] CLASS OF 1927 EPTEMBER, 1924, ushered in a new era in the history of the New Bedford Textile School. Classes of promise have been here before, but never one with quite the same qualities of the 1924-25 freshmen. All are agreed on that point. Mr. Taft, himself, has declared it, if not from the house tops, at least in no uncertain voice — hence it must be true. The first week or so of the term was a time spent mainly in dashing- hither and thither in an attempt to get used to the new surroundings, and to one another. Gradually things became straightened out and we were able to see the signs of budding genius in the various members of the class. Hughes progressed so rapidly that he has now given up his studies in order to devote his energy to the writing of a new work entitled, " Learning the Cotton Business in Spare-time. " As is usual we are made up of diverse nationalities. It was surprising to notice how well Scotland was represented. Although there are only two who can claim to be of real Scottish blood, there is, no doubt, more or less Scotch in us — on occasion, Keebler, of the chemistry, is my authority for that state- ment. The freshman class has been taking a part in all the activities of the school, and the Chemistry department in particular, furnishing the general moral tone by its formation of the " Non-swearing Club. " The requirements for membership are quite simple. Each swear-words calls for a deposit in the club ' s cash box. As far as we know they have not decided for what purpose the proceeds will be used, but Mercer suggests that a school cafeteria should be built. He points out it is highly undesirable for a young student, fresh from the care of a home, to be compelled to go all morning without any breakfast — we understand the matter will be taken up with board of trustees. It has been touching to see the manner in which the faculty respond to our feelings of kindness toward them. It is even said that Mr. Acomb feels such an affection for us that he makes a nightly pilgrimage with the express purpose of tucking into bed some of the freshmen. This gives them a new pur- pose in life and stimulates them to go on with their daily tasks with renewed energy. We deserve credit for our foresight in furnishing the school with a professional comedian, Cook fills this position to perfection, and is, indeed, the only person we have ever been known to bring a smile to the face of Dan Taft. For this alone we should be grateful. [Fifty-four] In sports our class has held up their end very well. We think the freshmen on the basket ball squad, Bruce and Schofield, played no small part in the success with which the school met in that line. The members have also turned out for the track squad. Although the baseball team, is in the embryo stage, we feel cur class will be well represented, in Carlson, Searles, Waring and others. Apart from the classes and sports we flatter ourselves that we are a very congenial lot. The differ- ent members pull together irrespective of nationalities or fraternities to which each belongs. This is as it should be. and if, when we graduate, we have done no more than this — the promotion of good fellowship in the school — still we will go out having left behind us something durable and worth while. [Fifty- five] NTHLETTC5 $9$tP [Fifty-seven] ATHLETICS HEN the class of 1925 entered the Textile school a new era in athletics was started. They were a lively bunch, and somethin g had to be done to keep them from running wild. So " Grimmie " organized a football team and they set forth to conquer the world. After a lot of bumps and a great deal of mauling, they decided they were not world beaters at that, and the school was saved from destruction. The next thing on the program was a basketball team and a great deal of credit is due the boys for the fine showing they made, for you must remember this was before the opening of our gym and the boys had to go to the extreme north end of the city for practice. They developed a fine team and won the city championship. After basketball " Grimmie " corralled the men up at Buttonwood and began the task of grooming a baseball team out of a bunch of would-be ball players ; he succeeded admirably. During our junior year, football was discontinued and baseball and basketball wer e the major sports. Our new gym was opened this year and Mr. Manning turned out an exceptionally good basketball team, and Adam Bayreuther took over baseball. His baseball team was without doubt one of the best that the school has ever had representing it. Thus we come to our senior year, and we all remember very well, how our basketball team won the Tex- tile schools championship, by virtue of victories over Fall River and Lowell. The 1925 baseball team, also under the guidance of Bayreuther, shows great promise, having a wealth of material from last year ' s team. [Fifty-eight] TENNIS RE you going- out for the tournaments? " and " Whom are you up against? " were the questions frequently heard last September following the announcement of the tournament. As a number of the contestants decreased, the interest rose higher and higher, and after many fine matches, Fate decreed that the finals should be held over to Spring for warmer weather, and we are now waiting for the results. The team has progressed wonderfully for the matches that are being made by Manager Malcolm Richardson and it is expected that by the close of the term Textile ' s Tennis team will be in the Hall of Fame. [Fifty-nine BASKETBALL HE New Bedford Textile School has always been strong on the basketball court and this year was no exception. When Coach Bayreuther called for candidates for the squad, he was greeted by four of last year ' s letter men. They were, Captain " Zip. " Carlo w, " Chuck, " Orr, " Red " Mul- larkey and " Boob " Hathaway. With this as a neucleus it was an easy matter to build up a fast team. " Joe " Paradis, manager, scheduled the best teams available. For the first time, Textile played teams of college grade, namely Brown, Rhode Island State, Northeastern and Tufts. Aside from playing this hard schedule, they made a Christmas vacation trip to Adams and played Berk- shire Cotton and Drury High. One victory that was dear to the hearts of all N. B. T. S. followers was that when they took Lowell into camp and for the first time won the Textile school championship thru virtue of another victory over Fall River Textile. Not being content with a good first team, Bayreuther developed a good second team and they had a schedule of their own, that they followed out rather successfully. Captain Lawrence ' Carlow Joseph Mullarkey William Bruce Wearers of the T Joseph Paradis Captain Elect, Charles Orr, Jr, Ralph Hathaway Harold Rigby Next year Textile should have another good year if not its best. Left over from this year ' s squad there will be " Chuck " Orr, " Boob " Hathaway, " Bill " Bruce and " Red " Mullarkey, practically the same as those who started the year as veterans. " Chuck " at the end of the season was chosen Captain for next year and should prove an exceptionally able Captain, for he has had plenty of experience and knows the game from A. to Z. [Sixty] BASKET BALL TEAM 1924-25 [Sixty-one] BASEBALL ITH the coming of Spring, the baseball bug bit a number of the students at the school, and so one would find them in the gym tossing the ball back and forth trying to get their glass arms into con- dition. When the weather got warmer Bayreuther took them up to Buttonwood Park and put them through their preliminary training. He had the makings of a first string team left over from last year and some very promising material in the Freshman class. " Joe " O ' Donnel, after taking a look at the crew immediately began hunting up some good teams for them to play, resulting in a schedule that rivalled the previous basketball schedule. Bay- reuther cut the squad and the remainder organized a second team. The first squad will without doubt bring fame to the name of Textile. The battery consists of. Captain " Red " Mullarkey, catch, Lavoskey and Cook, pitchers. Infield, " Casey " Searls, third, " Flash " Carlson, short, " Zip " Carlow and " Ping " Palla- troni second, and Rigby first. The outfield, representing the heavy artillery in the batting averages, is Rooney, White, Waring, and Tom. Utility men, Liebmann and Warren. Thus with this gathering Textile expects to conquer the baseball world and it is our earnest wish that they do, because nothing boosts a school better than a good name i n athletics.

The Delta Kappa Phi resumed their activities 1917. And the last of the roll is the Sigma Phi Tau which was organized in 1922. We also have the Chinese Club under this heading which was organized in 1922. All of which are working for the betterment of N. B. T. S. [Sixty-seven} TWENTY-SECOND CONVENTION OF PHI PSI FRATERNITY NDER the auspices of Gamma Chapter the Annual convention was a great success, extending from April twenty-fourth to the twenty-seventh. The delegates from Beta were Andrew G. Mercer, John H. Hood and Charles F. Orr, Jr., all of whom appreciated the wonderful hospitality extended by Gamma. All the members gathered at the house on Friday noon and spent most of the remainder of the day going over old friendship days. Saturday consisted of the general session which ended with a Buffet Lunch. The afternoon was spent in different forms of sports; Golf, Tennis, and Base Ball being those mostly participated in. The Annual Banquet, which ended sometime late in the evening (?), proved to be a very fitting conclusion of a wonderful day. Sunday morning, the convention having officially come to a close, the delegates reluctantly took their leave, each returning to his respective chapter, his mind refreshed by pleasant memories of a truly worth while convention. c Sixty-eight] [Sixty-nwg} Incorpo Boston New York Tall River 1925 Allen, Glawyer G.

[Eighty] :? ♦ Y Chinese Club V V y [Eighty-one] THE CHINESE STUDENTS ' CLUB HE Chinese Student ' s Club of 1925 has but seven members, having six in the graduating- class and one in the junior class and we are looking forward for more students to come to carry on the name created by the charter members. Although small as a club, she has the distinction of being one of the best clubs in many respects. From the club we have the advantage of learning the situations of the different parts of China, because we have members coming from both the North and South. It is with pleasure that we announce that some of the members of the club are going to study business in some reputed universities of this country, after their graduation; for they feel that to know Textile manufacturing only is not sufficient when they have with them the ambition to develop and revolutionize the industries in China. The other members will devote their time in getting useful and practical experience for a year or so before leaving for the other side. To think of the opportunities and the privileges presented to us, we feel that it is our business to get what is best, in order that we may be able to convince the people at home to change their views and adopt the modern methods in building up business as they do in this country. Undoubtedly, there is a great future in the various industries in China today, especially in the cotton end of it, but there is a great deal to do in training the help to greater efficiency in manufacturing. There are many things we wish to carry out as soon as we have a chance and we are now preparing ourselves to meet the situations as we go along. Hereby, on behalf of the club, I wish to extend our thanks to the school for all the valuable advice and worthy instructions we have received and to the different clubs for their notable services rendered us and hope that our good friendship will be maintained forever and ever. WALTER C. TSAO [Eighty-tzvo] CHINESE STUDENTS ' CLUB [Eighty-three [Eighty-five ' ] SOCIAL URING our pilgrimage as Freshies and Juniors we were somewhat handicapped because of our superiors and although we had great ideas to put to usage our unfortunate elders held a power- ful hand over us. But fate took its course in the fall of 1924, and we as Seniors endeavored to hold a Senior Hop, and Hayden, Paradise and Orr were appointed to take charge of the affair and fatten the class treasury which they did, and it was such an overwhelming success that all hands were asking, " when we were to repeat our Hop? " And in a short time the same committee with the aid of the fellow members of the class successfully held another dance in the School Gymnasium and the receipts were for our class banquet. Then as Lent gradually overtook our social activities it was decided that the minstrel show be dropped in favor of another dance after Lent, to which the following committee was appointed: Ramos, Pallatroni, and Oscar. This last dance of the season was a credit to the committee as everything went off in great style.

Soon you will be full fledged Alumni eager to gain a high place for yourselves in the textile world, and the fact that you are a graduate of New Bedford Textile School undoubtedly will help to give you a standing that you could not have obtained in some other way; but remember that it is your duty to maintain a high standard in your work so that you may be a credit to yourself, to your fellow Alumni, and to your School. It sometimes happens that younger graduates feel that the mention of the fact that they posses a diploma should entitle them to a position of agent, or at least superintendent of a mill. We older graduates know that you will meet many hard knocks, and be forced to pass many trials and tests before you even gain some minor position of authority ; but with the advantage that you hold of having been educated in the best Textile School in the world, in the course of time, we will be proud to say " Here is a fellow Alumnus of NBTS who has advanced rapidly. " In after years we hope to know that you have not severed all ties with your Alma Mater and that you constantly keep in touch with the School and the Alumni when you are looking for a new position or when you want to hire another good man from the Alumni Association of The School Worth While.

" Taft — " Why yes, its just like leading a fast life. The more you run around, the sooner you wear out. " Wise guy in hack of room — " Yah, hut more production. " The weary student fusser Pursues his hits of pash With a maximum of women And a minimum of cash. (Dedicated to Textile ' s " Muggin " squad) Ping (motoring) — Pardon me. hut do you care to take a ride? She — Sir, I ' m a lady. Ping — Sure I know that. If 1 had wanted a man, I ' d of brousfht the old man alomj. Grim — " What is density? " Earing — " I can ' t define it, but I can give an illustration. " Grim — " The illustration is good. Sit down. " Allan — This cold air chills me to the bone. Hood — Put on vour hat. Murphy— " What do they soak for coffee at the Greasy Spoon? " Orr — " Coffee beans, you simp. " Pallatroni — " My watch has gone wrong. " Howard — " The influence of environment. " Honest passenger on the Arnold St. car ; " Has anyone lost a large roll of bills with a rubber band around it ? " Joe Novick ; " Yes, I have. " Honest pas. " Well here ' s the rubber band. " Ike Walton ' s wife (victim of hay fever) " Watts the meter? Wire you Insulate? " Ike ; " I got shocked by a couple vamperes. " Teacher — " I know of three vacant jobs, but I can ' t recommend a single person in this class for one of them. " Moral : Don ' t take a post graduate course. [Ninety-six] JOKES (Cont.) Oscar — Want to buy an engagement ring? Clancey — Wassa matter, your girl throw ya down ? Oscar — No. We got married. Red Mercer — It ' s funny girls are prettier than men. Plunkett — Why, naturally. Red — Naw, not naturally. Liebman — Will you marry me ? She — I must tell you I ' m a somnambulist. Liebman — Oh, that ' s all right, you go to your church, and I ' ll go to mine. Heard in the " chem " lab. Carlson — Well you see I ' m a broad minded fellow. Murphy — Yah, his mind is on " broads " most of the time. " Nig " Less — Hey, got a cigarette? Anybody — Sure, want to see it? Student (during exam.) — Stan, how near are you to the right answer? Armitage (stage whisper) — Two seats. Our own Silent Cal, Abie Brooks. [Ninety-seven] JOKES (Cont.) THE 23rd SLAM 1. N. B. T. S. is my school, I shall want no other. It maketh me be there at 8:30, I shivereth with cold, It worketh all fellows extremely And they care not one. Yea tho I work every minute of the day, I shall fear no 90 ' s. For thou, O faculty, art with me, Thine assignments are petrifying. Thou criticizeth my work in the presence of many, For I am to become a sweeper, And I look not strong enough for the profession. Surely Cards and Pickers shall follow me eter- nally, And I shall dwell in N. B. T. S. forever. 2. Mr. Holt is my teacher, I shall want no other. He maketh me to construct awful designs, He reproveth me constantly, He liketh not my actions, And leadeth me into his room for my mark ' ; sake. Yea tho I work ' till I am cock-eyed. I shall never succeed for thou, Mr. Holt, art near me, Thy English and brogue overcome me. Thou preparest a sermon for me In the presence of my dear class-mates, Thou causeth me to draw fancy designs, For my practical experience. Surely thy presence will haunt me all the days of my life ' And I shall assist designers forever. AMEN. D. T. — Would you advise the use of hydrogen- peroxide as a tooth lotion? W. R. — Why I ' d say yes, but not if they were bought at Woolworth ' s. Waldron — How would you determine what size motor to use to displace a 10 H. P. steam engine? Wong — Figure it out. He — Less is a three letter man. She — Base ball, Basket ball, and Track I sup- pose. He— No — I. O. U. Sam White doesn ' t go out riding nites any more ' cause his Lizzie is up in Framingham. Anchor Man would like to know what the No Smoking sign in the cellar means. [Ninety-eight] JOKES (Cont.) OUR PROFS. Some profs are so dead their wives could collect insurance on them. Teaching is like bull righting — you got to kill a lot of hull to sret by with the crowd. The height of absentmindedness is the pro- fessor who asks a clerk for 30x3 balloon tires for his Bar-sarkel. The above might be a case of being all tired out. It used to be you could tell a prof, by his dress — now you can ' t tell him anything. Some instructors are so distrustful they would accuse Adam for not having a home in the garden of Eden. The reason Textile instructors haven ' t formed a union is because no two of them can agree. Some profs are like cross-word puzzles their kev letters are D and F. Missionary — " My mission is to save women. " Mercer — " Then save one for me. " THOSE DARN REPORTS When we got our mid-year reports And pierced them with longing eyes. The forties and fifties, that are dished to us ' Tis then that our temper flies. We frame up some passable tale of woe. That we to our folks must tell. He ' s down on me. he hates me so! I did my lessons well ! This was the tale when we got below. The teachers were to blame Indeed they should be all kicked out. It is a beastly shame. Joe Novick ' s face is dark, Joe Novick ' s face is grave Joe Novick ' s face is one disgrace Joe Novick needs a shave. Taft — Wake up. you can ' t sleep in this class. Cook — I know it, I ' ve been trying for half an hour. We wish to emphatically deny that Leo War- ing is a victim of Sleeping Sickness. Remember the hard boiled egg got that way from being in hot water. [Ninety-nine] JOKES (Cont.) Prof. Brooks of our Chemical department, after a life-long study, has compiled the follow- ing data about a new element " Woman. " After a careful analysis of Prof. Brooks report, we feel greatly honored to be the first to publish it, as it is complete in every detail. Here it is : A New Element — " Woman " Symbol— WO A member of the Human family. Occurrence : Can be found wherever man exists. Seldom occurs in the free or native state. Quality depends on the state in which it is found. With the exception of Massachu- setts state, the combined state is to be preferred. Physical Properties : All colors and sizes. Always appears in disguised condition. Surface of face seldom unprotected by coating of paint or film of powder (composition immaterial). Boils at nothing, and may freeze at any moment. However, it melts when properly treated. Very bitter if not used correctly. Chemical Properties : Extremely active. Pos- sesses a great affinity for gold, silver, platinum and precious stones of all kinds. Violent re- action when left alone by men. Ability to ab- sorb all sorts of expensive food at any time. Undissolved by liquids, but activity is greatly increased when saturated with spirit solutions. Sometimes yields to pressure. Turns green when placed next to a better appearing sample. Ages very rapidly. Fresh variety has great magnetic attraction. Note : Highly explosive and likely to be dan- gerous in inexperienced hands. WHO SAYS It all depends. I ' ll pop ya off. You know what I do to fellows who crib in exams. CO-O-O-O-O-M-M-e I repeat I ' M no dang fool. Minus 10%, minus 20%, minus 30%, etc. That makes it nice. You know my father? You know what I mean. Us farmers. I can fix you up anytime. Mr. Bob. " When I was in the mill. Cut the ! Crompton — I take great joy in giving you 81 in Math. Oscar — Aw make it a hundred and enjoy your- self. [One hundred] JOKES (Cont.) The graduating class is to be commended on the way they supported the staff of this book. It gladdened our hearts to see the way the copy poured in on us. We were literally buried with the stuff. Yes, we were not. The one redeeming feature, the letter box was not worn out and can be saved for next year ; it collects dust wonderfully and " Red " doesn ' t have to walk all around the library when dusting. Nevertheless, mates, when you read these jokes and one hits you, forget it, and think only of those on the other fellow. A joke isn ' t a joke unless someone is the goat, and everybody demands plenty of jokes. Nice fellows. AFTERWARD The time has come for parting— Our happy school days done, Yet our thoughts grow sweeter Of the class of Twenty-five. So let ' s be bright and merry Like song birds in the Spring As parting, ever cheery, A fond adieu we sing. [One hundred one] JOKES (Cont.) Holmes — " Say, that ' s a fast-looking- car you ' ve got there. What ' s the most you ever got out of it? " Radway — " Five times in a mile. " Bill — " There goes Horace. He took the mon- key gland treatment. " Pill — " But he ' s flirting with all the Men that he sees. " Bill — " Yes, poor fellow. They grafted the glands of a female monk into him. " Night Watchman — " Young man, are you go- ing to kiss that girl? " Mercer (straightening up) — - " No sir. " Night Watchman — " Here, then ; hold my lan- tern. " LESS LIQUOR FOR LIZZ Garage Man — " How much d ' ye want? " Burt— " A gallon. " Garage Man — " Wot ' s the idea — weanin ' it? " " This is the fig tree you ' ve heard so much about. " " Oh ! I thought the leaves were larger. " Robinson — " Lipstick ? " She — No, but I can hold them there. Taft (in cotton classing) — What causes tinges and stain? Novick — Terbacker juice. Crompton (Steam class) — How many times do the hot gases pass over the tubes in a B. W. boiler. Mullarkey — Three times a day. It would be a lot of fun to see Itch Papkin and Ike Waldron cast all alone on a desert island; they would make such good pals, you know. We sometimes wonder what will happen to the boys when they lose the paternal influence of the graduating men. " Ed " Ramos ' s neck is not habitually dirty, that ' s only his natural color. Jo Paradis thinks that 35 cents would be too much, but Emmett says that 25 cents would be enuf.

Whether you go South or West, or stay in New England, you will find that most of the leading textile mills use TRADE MARK UNITED STATES tA MODERN TEXTILE LUBRICANTS The fact is, over 70% of them use NON-FLUID OIL regularly. Why? Because they get ad- vantages which they can obtain from no other lubricant — advantages such as these : Relief from oil-stained goods — NON-FLUID OIL doesn ' t drip or spatter from bearings. Minimum wear and tear on machines — NON-FLUID OIL stays in bearings and puts a positive check on friction. Reduced lubricant expense — NON-FLUID OIL prevents all waste — goes at least three limes as far as liquid oil. Our bulletin " Lubrication of Textile Machinery " is really a textbook.
