GENTLEMAN. TEACHER AND FRIEND OF THE STUDENTS, THIS VOLUME OF THE FABRICATOR IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED WITH THE ESTEEM AND AD- MIRATION OF THE CLASS OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-SEVEN. HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL was founded in 1895 under a special act of State Legislature and the first building was erected and equipped from appropriations made by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of New Bedford. Its object was to give instruction along lines that would be of material benefit to young men who wished to follow cotton manufacturing as a business. The school was incorporated by a group of interested men who later became the Board of Trustees, and Professor C. P. Brooks, the founder of the Lowell Textile School, was appointed director. In 1899, the building which now contains the office and picking rooms was constructed. The enrollment steadily increased until three years later an addition was made. Again, in 1905, the remainder of the building was in- creased to what at present stands south of the alleyway. In 1911, it was decided to erect a recitation and chemistry building on a lot of land north of the structure. At this time, the old building was turned over entirely to machinery. The school flourished until 1917 when so many left school to enlist. After the war, the government provided means so that the veterans could attend the school and enrollment gradually increased again. In 1922, the State Legis- lature made an appropriation so that an addition could be made to the weaving and spinning departments and a gymnasium could be built in the upper floor. FOREWORD OF STAFF WE, THE STAFF OF THE YEAR BOOK OF 1927, HAVE ENDEAVORED TO DEPICT TO THE READERS, THE SOCIAL, SCHOLASTIC AND ATHLETIC LIFE OF THE SCHOOL. WE WISH TO THANK THOSE WHO SO KINDLY CONTRIBUTED TO THIS VOLUME AND THEY MAY FEEL SURE THAT THEIR EFFORTS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED. AN ANNUAL IS ESSENTIALLY A VOLUME OF WORK AND WE SINCERELY HOPE THAT THE ENSUING CLASSES WILL REALIZE THIS FACT AND BEGIN EARLY. William Smith Headmaster MR. SMITH WITHOUT EXAGGERATION, WE SAY THAT MR. SMITH ' S ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE UN- LIMITED. AS TIME PASSES ONE CAN EASILY SEE THE ENLARGEMENT OF THE SCHOOL, FROM YEAR TO YEAR. WITH CHARACTERISTIC ENERGY HE HAS TAKEN A WHOLE HEARTED INTEREST IN ALL OUR STUDENT AFFAIRS. AS STUDENTS, WE THE CLASS OF 1927 REC- OGNIZE HIS EXCEPTIONAL ABILITY AS HEAD- MASTER, AND HIS FAIRNESS TO THE STUD- ENTS OF THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL. THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 F. Beardsworth S. Moore S. Holt W. Acomb ■4f 10fr- 1927 - - THE FABRICATOR WEAVING AND DESIGNING DEPARTMENT THE Weaving and Designing Department of the school trains the students to fill positions as designers or weaving executives. In the design room, courses are offered in designing, cloth analysis and color. Fabrics of every design and nature are carefully studied and analyzed. Slashing, spooling and warping are taught in the warp preparation room, every class having the opportunity of making a warp for a loom. During his three years at school the student learns to assemble and operate every kind of lo om. Samuel Holt, who has been with the school since its origin, is head of this department. Through his perseverance, hard work and untiring patience, many good designers have been produced. The weave room, which is second to none, is in charge of Mr. Acomb. His able assistants, Mr. Moore and Mr. Beards- worth, have had much experience and are always on hand to help the perplexed student. Through the generosity of the Philadelphia Heddle Company, Knowles Reed Works and many other companies, the weave room is kept up to date. Crompton and Knowles and Draper looms were added recently. ■-H 1 1 — cV s oV- V % THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 w X h D W Pi CQ o H o H a o U ;{ 1 2 fr— ■ £ 1927- -THE FABRICATOR MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT T HE Mechanical Department of the New Bedford Textile School trains the ■ ■ students to fill positions in machine shops, electrical shops and in drafting and engineering offices. Mr. Crompton is head instructor and confines himself to the theoretical side of the department. Mr. Walton and Mr. Bayreuther, assistants, handle the practical side in a most efficient manner. Besides the student work, this department has been able to give valuable assistance to the different departments through their well equipped machine shop, electrical laboratory and seemingly unlimited blueprints. .-Hj( 13J8H-- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 F.

Brooks -- { 14} «- 1927 - - THE FABRICATOR CHEMISTRY, DYEING AND FINISHING DEPT. rrt HE Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Department gives instructions in ■ ■ Organic and Inorganic Chemistry Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis, Textile Chemistry, Dyeing and Converting. The head of the chemistry staff is Fred E. Busby, B. S., and the assistants are Abram Brooks, Organic and Quantitative Analysis; Robert I. Brickley, Textile Chemistry and Dyeing; and Frank Weymouth, A. B. The object of the courses in this department is to give the student a thorough knowledge of the chemistry of textile processes, both dyeing and finishing of fibres and fabrics and the manufacture and analysis of the various chemicals used in textile plants. Besides two chemical and dyeing laboratories, this department has a converting room, a printing laboratory and an analytical balance room. The stockroom contains an adequate supply of apparatus for experimental work and a large stock of dyes is always on hand for the student to use. The graduates of this course find employment in dyehouses, print shops, chemical laboratories, bleacheries and dyestuff manufacturing plants. THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 fQ • .v$£| flHR ' £_ j .

' T- ' HE Cotton Yarn Preparation Department of the school is considered the ■ ■ most important department of all in the eyes of the students. In this department the foundation of the entire business rests: namely, the making of cotton yarn for weaving and knitting purposes. During the past two years there have been several additions to the machin- ery list. Among these are a Roller and Clearer Card especially adapted for waste cotton and a new air system for the pickers. A new steam oven has also been installed in the testing laboratory for determining moisture contents of yarns. This department is headed by Mr. Taft who is assisted by Mr. Holden and Mr. Woolam. These three instructors have always been willing to give the student help which their experience qualifies them for. - 4{ 1 7 } THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 KNITTING DEPARTMENT ONE of the most important and progressive departments in the school is the Knitting Department. During the past two years this branch of the textile industry has made great strides in the winding and knitting of Rayon. All such information can be found in the Knitting Department. The work has been greatly advanced by donations of machinery from the Hemphill Co., Fidelity Machine Co., American Moistening Co., Dupont Rayon Co. and the Crawford Mfg. Co. This department is indeed fortunate in having at its head, Mr. Manning, whose knowledge of knitting and textiles in general is unlimited. Mr. Manning has worked wonders with this department in the last four years and it was through him that much of the new machinery was obtained. During the past year a large testing room has been fully equipped and the running conditions of all the different textile fabrics have been carefully studied bv Mr. Smith and Mr. Manning. -4 1 8 )e» 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1927 IN early September, 1924, the members of the class of ' 27 met, for the first time, outside the portals of that world known institution, the New Bedford Textile School. We had no idea of the cares, the joys and the friendships which were to come during the next three years. We freshmen gathered in groups outside the school and admired the very collegiate upper classmen as they greeted their fraternity brothers and friends after the summer vacation. When the bell rang we went inside and were herded into the library where one of the office girls quickly straightened us out as to where we should go and what we should do. Then we were turned over to the instructors, each of whom insisted that we spend more money in his depart- ment than in any other. We had to get instruction sheets from every instructor besides pick glasses, drawing sets, analysis books etc. Later, when we compared notes with our chemistry comrades, we found that they had also suffered financial reverses. The first few weeks were spent in getting acquainted with our school- mates, instructors and with our school work. As few of us in the general class had ever been inside of a cotton mill, this time was well spent in teaching us the fundamental principles involved in the manufacture of cotton cloth. In the fall of ' 25, we came back from the fields, forests, mountains and mills for another attack on education. Our class was very unfortunate for some reason or other for only half the members of the original class returned to school. Bill Plunkett, Bob Desmond, Rollin McHugh and Red Mercer had had enough theory and were climbing the ladder of success in the textile world. Hj( 1 9 )§►— THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 During the second year the evils of double cloths and steam engineering presented themselves and we had to study harder than we had ever had to before to overcome them. The rest of the subjects were passed without any extra exertion so on the whole, we had a very pleasant term. We felt so much at home in the school that we started to call the instructors by their first names. Our class was well represented in athletics, Casey Searls being the hero on the diamond while the honors on the basketball floor were divided between Bruce and Levovsky. Nearly all of us belonged to either one or the other of the two large fraternities by this time and there was much good natured rivalry carried on. Interfraternity bowling matches, bridge games and pool games were held, with honors about even. In October, 1925 we lost our classmate Wilfred Touchette who was fatally injured in an automobile accident. Then came our third year and we began to realize that soon we would leave school and face the world so we studied harder and more faithfully. It took us two years to appreciate what a wonderful course the school was offering to us. In electricity we learned that ohms are much more to be feared than volts and we doubtlessly ' shocked ' Mr. Walton more than once with some of our brilliant answers. In the last half of our third year we were staunch followers of that great indoor sport, " Wet Wash. " This was our only relaxation from the " weare and teare " on the brain induced by C. Y. P., Weaving, Design- ing, Mill Engineering, etc. Soon each of us will take our separate path to success and, believe me, some of the class of ' 27 will eventually become leaders in the textile industry.

The tools will aid him as Dan ' s playmate and understudy; the tobacco — the less said the better. Tom has endeavored for the past three years to revise the courses of in- struction at N. B. T. S. but so far has met with little success. As a mathematican we have in Tommy a marvel of the age. He is at present working on a new table of electrical areas, namely " VOLTS PER SQUARE INCH. " His ambition is to be agent of some New Bedford mill and turn out a superior grade of yarn. Although not an athlete, Tom has always been an ardent supporter of Athletics. His strong point in school activities is dancing and his delight is to serve on dancing committees. Tommy in his own inimitable way will undoubtedly achieve success in our world of Textiles and some day make a name for himself. -Hg( 22 fe 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR WILLIAM BRUCE Fairhaven High School Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity Ti HE answer to the fifth place is spot, zero, naught, nothing, circle, cipher, " spoke up the mental gymnast from across the river. Thus we first learned that Bill was not to be classed as one of those gentlemen that Barnum claims was born every sixty seconds. Bill ' s favorite pastimes consist of looking to see if by chance he has re- ceived any mail, of trying to get the correct pronunciation of long Q and of thinking up excuses for being late. We gather that the bridge is open once each morning for every setting on an old Hielman comber. Bill is noted for his peculiar sense of humor and his fighting spirit. Be it on the basketball floor or classroom, he always comes out of the melee with half a dozen baskets or a 98%. When Bill graduates, the Textile industry will flourish, even tho ' babies are born with a complete outfit on; for Bill has all the qualifications that assure success in the Textile business. _4Bl 23 W THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 £ GEORGE ABBOT LEVOVSKY New Bedford High School Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity A FTFR completing a successful baseball season with the N. B. T. S., the amiable " Hiram " will try out for " bigger and better " games. This rugged lad who went through High School practically unknown to the athletic world, blossomed late but grew with startling rapidity when once transplanted to the fertile field of the Textile School Campus. The result was the production of one of the best athletes that Textile has had dur- ing the last two years. Athletics have played a great part in this lad ' s career; a foul ball was the instrument of fate which caused a pall of darkness to fall upon a certain young lady — so she called George her Knight. It would not surprise us in the least to hear within a few months of Hiram ' s departure for greater things, that the wheels of fate had revolved once more and cupid had initiated one more couple into the Temple of Love. Eventually — Why not now, George? -h6| 24 )8m-. 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR £ EVERETT LOUD Central Falls High School Phi Psi Fraternity Si • EVERAL summers ago this curly headed youth, after finishing a college course at Rhode Island State College, thought that life on a farm was too hard. So he cranked up his high powered fliver and left the quiet and peaceful town of Central Falls to come to the wicked city of hills, mills, stills and bills, to attend our dear institution. Right away he started to learn all the lessons that would make any person a first class mill man. " Ev " is a hound " for night work. The nights he is not at school he may be seen somewhere between the wilds of the North End and Clinton Street, in the wee small hours of the morning, either walking or riding with some kind-hearted milkman and whistling that famous masterpiece of Irving Berlin ' s, " Because I Love You. " But seriously, Everett is a hard worker and puts his mind on his lessons, especially designing and weaving. We feel confident that if he is as loyal to his work in the mill as he has been to his books and lessons in school, he will be a successful mill man. ■-«Sf25J|H THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 thomas j. Mcdonald New Bedford High School T: Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity HINK of the Razzers! " Mac is surely the boy for that. If there is anybody you want " razzed, " get Mac to do it; it ' s sure to be properly done if his shadow chimes in. His shadow is known around the " Lab " as " Husky " Ed Waring. Somehow or other Tom always managed to pass his mid-year and final exams, even tho ' he was out, doing his " stuff, " as he calls it, with one of his many friends. Besides being handy with his chemical apparatus, he surely knew his stuff when it came to changing piston rings on his FORD. " Mac " must be mentional honorably as our class president. He has done good work as our leader and also as our " AD " manager. He would not accept the negative as an answer from any of the country ' s Textile Works in regard to any advertisements. In case the Chemical end of the Textile industry does not su it your fancy, Tom, we would like to suggest opening an advertising agency for your future, as you sure have the ability to collect " ADS. " Well, Tom, here ' s hoping that your ship " SUCCESS " comes sailing in rapidly once you start your life ' s career. -+ { 26 } 3fe 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR £ CARROLL C. MOORE New Bedford High School Phi Psi Fraternity N OBLE! What! Straight as an arrow and every inch a soldier. Dinty has always endeavored to keep the class in good spirits by his wit and humor. In fact, someone once made the remark that he was NO FOOL. We repeat that with emphasis. Carroll may not look very angelic but he is really a quiet, unobtrusive youth whose idea of a wild time is to have a good dinner and finish it off with a cigar. The brand of cigars that Carroll smokes is a cross between a Pittsburgh stogie and a roll of burlap but we don ' t hold that against him. As an athlete Stymie certainly is a good golfer. Sometimes he gets his golf and his bowling scores mixed but that doesn ' t phase him. He divides one by two and calls it his golf score and multiplies the other by two and he has his bowling total. Tennis, baseball and Jacquard Designing complete his athletic contribu- tions. In the classroom, Carroll can always be found one jump ahead of the instructors, waiting for them to catch up. His one big failing is loitering around Textile directories. Nevertheless, we know it is only a matter of time before MR. MOORE Private will be seen on an office door and Carroll will be well on his way to success. -4 11 fc THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 ISAAC RUBENSTEIN New Bedford High School Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity I N the case of this particular young gentleman " Silence is Bliss. " Like all other silent men, Ike ' s strongest point was never over-exertion. It is due to this fact that he is such a competent machinist. There were no problems that arose during Ruby ' s abbreviated stay with us that he could not solve. This is clearly shown in the remarkable ability he has shown by leading our Hockey, La Cross and Water Polo teams during the last two seasons. He is not only proficient in his studies but also in his wearing apparel. He has been well named the " Hound for Clothes. " During his last school year this ambitious lad has been toiling evenings on ' The Modern Tumbril, " which, instead of dragging French aristocrats to their dooms, carries American Patriots to their evening festivities. Although our faith in Ruby has never been shattered, our minds, however, are now on edge. We sincerely hope that the proposed late fare increase was not in any way caused by our beloved classmate. Good Luck, Ruby! -4 28 ►- 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR ELI WILLIAM THEODORE WAREING Dartmouth High School Phi Psi 11 ERE we have him girls, the Sheik of Padanaram. The boy himself, who no girl has been able to resist. His favorite pastime was entertaining the other fellow ' s girl, but now this " deep " from the hayfield has found a girl who keeps him well in hand. Seriously speaking, Chick is a hardworking lad, or at least has been since he entered our golden gate. As a baseball athlete Chick is there. He has made the varsity team three times, and is still going strong. Chemistry holds no problem too difficult for Chick; he is master of them all. His thesis has been a great help to him, and he has already become a noted alcoholic bleacher. Take care Chick and watch your half dollars, you may need them to start a bleachery. m 29 ]t» 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR RUSSELL DAVIS Plainfield High Phi Psi l IVE foot two — eyes of blue, has any- body seen Davis. We admit he is slightly over 62 inches, but very little. Russ may be described as small, alert and unobtrusive, the modest violet type. He can just reach up and grasp the handle of the warp reel, and for the past four months he has played with this instrument day in and day out. Little is known of Davis; his home life, ambitions — all remain secret to us. He divulges little and talks less, truly a man of mystery. Toward the end of the year when the fine days are coming in we envy this youth who takes Friday afternoons off. How he gets this " drag " we don ' t know, but do we care — yes! It is rumored that Russ ' father is a woolen superintendent and advised his son to take cotton as a course. Draw your own conclusions. Davis will probably go back to Connecticut upon completion of his course, and take away some super ' s position. THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 CHARLES FEAD Port Huron High School Del ta Kappa Phi Fraternity H ERE he is folks! A man in a thous- and, truly one among many. If you don ' t believe it. ask us. For such a big husky exponent of the West, he chose an exceptionally light vocation. " Chuck " is our leading knitting student and has been told to " tend to his knittin ' " more times than we dare mention. " Granny " Fead has lately discovered that musicians are born, not made, so he has turned his banjo into a writing tablet. Chuck ' s delight is to formulate arguments and with the aid of his deep basso voice he usually wins by drowning out his opponents. After graduation he will probably take up a course in some other college and then turn back to Port Huron to work. Charlie has always been a leader in school activities and we expect great things of him. A J W 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR JAMES GALLAGHER Holy Family High School Delta Kappa Phi O ' H, girls, look at the hair! And to think that under it there is a brain that contains valueless mechanical knowlege. Jimmie is noted for his captivating smile and melodious tenor voice; altho he has had a hard time drowning out the uproar in the machine shop. Jim is the Stienmetz of the class. When it comes to solving trig problems, tapping ammeters across a circuit, and keeping himself immaculate Jimmie has it. The Mechanical world will soon claim Gal, and lucky will be the engineer who works under him. We feel sure that Jim will succeed as he had all the requisites of a successful engineer. { 33 fen- f ■ THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 £ RALPH B. GRAY New Bedford High School 1 T was rumored once that a Textile " Prof was killed in a mad student rush to watch Gray work. Altho ' he has already worn out the yardstick .willed to him by last year ' s graduating class, he will, no doubt, obtain another one soon. However, " Spooks " is reforming we hear, and is really going to conquer the world when he gets out in the wide open spaces of Pittsburg. By the way his candy business WAS going, he would have been retired if the boys, as he claims in tearful tones, hadn ' t raided his desk so often. " Spooks " is our class BABY, by the way, but he could easily have taught some of the older boys the art of " SEX APPEAL " and do a good job at that. Outside of these pastimes, Ralph has spent his time inside of our Chem- istry Lab trying to study Chemistry. He has done well and we hope that he will always continue to do so. ■-4 34 ►•-- 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR ERNEST HASK1NS Tisbury High School Mechanical Course ErNEST ,s another q u,et student who seems to enjoy listening much better than talking but " a good listener is a wise man. " Ernest was not a bit backward in shouldering his share of the burden of the class and it makes no difference how hard the task is, his smile is always near the surface, ready to break forth into a laugh. His kind and courteous manners have won him a high place in our esteem. We are confident that he will be a success in any branch of the mechanical field he choses to enter. h§( 35 } THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 LEANDER HOLMES Phi Psi T HIS light-weight came to " Tech " with the ambition to study. He has succeeded beautifully, having taken every subject the school offers and trying to start a few more. Cotton Classing attracted Lee so much that he took the course twice, but balked the third time when it appeared on the curriculum of study. Enough is plenty even in such a delight- ful atmosphere. Some say lank, some say lean, some say tall. Nevertheless Lee remains the same six footer; seventy-two inches of manhood. He has been one of the most modest chaps in the school, never having been known to brag and always ready to help the unfortunates in C. Y. P. When it comes to dancing we doubt if any one can describe the interior of New Bedford dance halls the way our hero can. This leads us to believe that his choosen profession will be either C. Y. P. expert or proprietor of a dance hall. Whatever vocation Holmes chooses his frankness and congeniality will be stepping stones to success. -m{36 ° 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR FRANCIS QUINN Holy Family High School Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity L,OOK! Just another one of those elec- trical wizzards that think, and think, and think. Pat ' s only nightmare is Industrial Mathematics, especially that part called Trigonometry. We are told that James has been known to do a full day ' s work, although from watching him in the machine shop — we doubt it. His hobby seems to be radio and if the funds were larger there would have been a broadcasting station at N. B. T. S. Quinn ' s athletic attempts have been very limited but he has always con- tributed in other ways to school athletics and social activities. In spite of his many absences, we are sure that James has learned sufficient to give him a good start in the mechanical or electrical field. Soon, we suppose, there will be a new firm of " QUINN AND GALLAGHER. " °437} THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 CASEY SEARLS Adams High School Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity H " 1ENCE, loathed melancholy, make way for the " Mighty Adams Athlete " and prominent " spoofer " of the class. Like all other Adams boys, Casey has spent most of his three year ' s sojourn in de- fending that " little burg " way up in the sticks. The day Casey left home " for to come " to New Bedford Textile School, the town went in mourning and great was their lamenting. However, Casey tries to divide his time between Adams and the Whaling City and so satisfies everybody. When Albion has any spare moment he may be found with his nose in the Textile Directory, ascertaining how many spindles this mill has and how many looms that one did have. Mill statistics are ' Al ' s " strong point. His one drawback is his language with it ' s " How could you, " " Mercy, I could scream " or " Stop! You know I bruise easily. " Putting all joking aside, Casey is dependable and sincere, always willing to lend a hand and always cheerful. - :{38fc = 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR ELIOT SNELL New Bedford High School Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity W, HAT if he does occupy most of the picture! Eli admits that he never missed a meal. Eliot Allen Snell is one of those solid, old-fashioned type of boys with a queer sense of humor and faulty memory. Peaches ' big point is fixing things up, be it dates or looms. The truth is always embarrassing but Eli has never been kissed, although he likes to talk about wild times with different parties. He claims there is no sense in weaving Leno when plain cloth with holes punched in it give the same effect. As a boxing instructor, Tubby has challenged most of the instructors to step a couple of rounds with him but they all seem to be backward in accepting. We believe that, if it wasn ' t for his sister, there would be no work kept up-to-date. Eli has been working as student janitor for two reasons, namely: — to be democratic and to keep well supplied with pencils. Eli ' s cheerful disposition and ability to grasp things readily are his chief assets to fame and fortune. ■■ { 39 )§►. THE FABRICATOR - - 1927 - K 40 Ifi. 1927 - - THE FABRICATOR JUNIOR COURSE WITHIN the past two years a new course has been installed in the school for students who have not reached an age that enable them to become members of the regular student body. This course has the same instructors as the other course. A few minor subjects are added to lead up to the major ones. This year the above group finishes their two year preparatory course which consists of: Designing Mechanical Drawing Knitting Special Cloth Course Machine Shop Mechanics Weaving Industrial Mathematics Chemistry Cotton Sampling C. Y. P. Slashing and Warping After the junior has concluded this course and passed all subjects he receives a certificate. If he so desires he may return the following year and resume his subjects in the regular second year general course. Then at the end of two more years he may graduate with general students. This class being the first is very small but the incoming class of 1926 was larger. As the course becomes better known the enrollment will undoubtedly increase greatly. -iie on- M. DROZEK Ingraham School I V V ISSY " is the advance guard of the Polish Army. At last you might think so if you saw the lad in the " Tech " - Holy Family game, a homer and a three bagger. Baseball is only one of his achievements, a few of his others are soccer, basketball and track. He has the honor of being one of the first juniors in the school and by all appearances one of the first out. Drozek forsook High School in order to come to a more practical place. Now he leads his class in everything. Although quite a lot of worry to the instructors he promises to be a better boy next year when he returns for the second year of General Course. Mike has proved a source of supplies for ideas in this write-up of the Junior Course, and we might add that if we waited for all of them the book would never have been printed. -•6(41 } - THE FABRICATOR - - 1927 SAM LASSOW Knowlton School iVlAY we present Sam Lassow, who has completed his Junior Course, in a satisfactory manner, according to Mr. Acomb and the rest of the instructors. Sam graduated from the Knowlton Grammar School and after spending a few months at High School, decided to grasp his opportunity via of the Junior Course. His outdoor sport consists of driving his Chandler downtown to let the females gaze upon his handsome countenance. Always ready to show the latest in regards to clothes, he has set quite an example for the rest of the Juniors to follow. May we also add that Sam ' s father, who is a tailor, (explaining his fashion plate style) has placed him well, and may we some day see glittering electric lights, bearing the following: Lassow Son, New Bedford ' s Greatest Tailors. AMERICO PIETAVINO Rodman School 1 ATRIOTIC even to the name. So we present the third of the group of the Junior Course. Americo is the mathe- matician of the Juniors. His accuracy in figures was attained when he was but a mere child counting change — and bananas. Americo may be seen almost any morning riding his bicycle to school like the original " Pusha Madonna. " He excels in all his studies and is quite popular with the boys who have met him. Americo ' s delight is soccer. Unfortunately we have had no soccer team with which he could kick away to his heart ' s content, but next year his fondest delight may be gratified, as there are rumors of a soccer team being formed. He has passed many hours upon the basketball court and is one of the players on the varsity baseball nine. —4 42 SOP MORE THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 CLASS OF 1928 IN the Fall of 1926, the class of June 1928 returned once again to " Textile ' s Halls of Learning " after a long summer vacation. Acquaintances were renewed and events of the summer talked over before we were conducted, as usual, to the office to relieve us of " surplus change. " After a few lectures and warnings we were dismissed for the remainder of the day — only to return on the " morrow. " Aside from studies the students turned their attention to " Frat " Initia- tions and dances. Our class were ably represented on the basketball court by Schofield, Francis Tripp, Brotherson and Fred Tripp. ' Ted " Carlson, one of our class, managed the Varsity successfully throughout its season. The Chemistry students were shifted from the " Big Lab " to the small one. Things were kind of dull for a while until Borden opened his Cafe to replace " Burt and Murphy ' s. " We lost three of our class before the end of the year. " Winnie ' ' MacKay, Kirschbaum and " Red " Lawrence left school to ente r business. The Chemistry Class were introduced to the C Y. P. and Weaving Departments and " Sully " at once decided to become a cotton classer. —4 44 )§►• 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR The windows of the " Lab " were left screwed down due to the opening of Gray ' s Confectionery Store and Borden ' s Cafe. Looks pretty tough for Rock ' s Variety Store. In the middle of the term the Class was introduced to a new member of our Faculty, namely Mr. Weymouth, Assistant Instructor of Chemistry. CAN YOU IMAGINE— " Joe " Norris " making a woman! " " Ted " Carlson being bashful! Borden losing his appetite! Radway hurrying! " Ed " Waring staying after school! Sullivan being lazy! Adelsohn losing his voice! The basketball team not stopping for a " feed? " After two happy years together, we returned once more next fall to spend our final year at " Tech. " May the final year be as eventful and pleasant as the past two! ° «{ 45 )3»- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 SECOND YEAR DIRECTORY Second Year General Biswas, Khitish C. Brotherson, Curtis S.

On that date a goodly number of wild eyed freshmen descended with noisy shouts on Tech ' s ivy clad halls. A few talked with new made friends while others explored the school or were content to roam amid the winding paths of the campus. The boys soon learned the different pronunciation of textile terms and revised English, that squares on design paper in Mr. Holt ' s class were not made for tick-tack-toe, that Mechanics is " nothing more or less " than Physics, and that few excuses are ever accepted. During the fraternity rush season the boys led the " life of Riley, " there being plenty of smokes and food, all gratis. But all that glitters is not gold, for after accepting bids they found themselves in bond of slavery. Now, no longer masters of themselves they served, sir ' d, and stirred at the commands of others. The ones who survived initiations are here to say that bruised bodies and sleepy heads are not conducive to success in Mechanics exams. Considering the number of freshmen that enrolled at the beginning of the first semester, the class stuck together very well. Out of 25 that were received only a few dropped out. The first to leave was Bob Greene, who was apparent- «c 48 te— 1927 - - THE FABRICATOR ly tired of studies and disappeared without warning. We have heard he has joined the Marines. During the Christmas vacation Mclntyre evidently found the balmy weather of Alabama too inviting to leave so another diplomat was lost to N. B. T. S. Also at this time Sauta must have been in a delirious mood when he left cravats to the chemistry instructors. Midyears descended and overwhelmed the unsuspecting freshmen but after these spasms they were a sadder but wiser group. But now they know that; it does take more than a few minutes to ink in those little squares, the dobby is not a horse, there is no such thing as 100% in C. Y. P., that cotton mules won ' t kick, cords are not to be played with, a harness draft will not incite a cold, and H; S 4 is not a mouth wash. Adams is still wondering whether the shaft is on the gear or the gear is on the shaft and what the twist multiplier on a picker is — ask Mr. Taft. Pierce is encroaching upon instructor Brickley ' s formulae. Perhaps he thinks he can invent a new dye. We wonder what fish think about and if Meagher has discovered what little arrows are used for — and by the way, Meagher can dig-um-up and they ' re not dead ones either. Dan Sullivan has had a tough time all winter with his subjects. He is recuperating and we are glad to say Dan is a little Beta. Davis finds that with Friday afternoons off his health is beginning to improve. Conversation between Davis and Mr. Taft: Davis: " Good morning, Mr. Taft. " Mr. Taft: " Good afternoon, Davis. ' ' Davis: " Afternoon? Why I just came in, I missed the bus from Providence. " Mr. Taft: " Yes, yes. The same old stuff, I wish somebody would think up something original. Yu Ming is sorry to hear of the recent disturbance in his hometown, Shanghai. He says that he will have to stop sending his laundry home until the trouble blows over. Yu knows quite a bit of our language now. He even knows who Webster is although he uses a Chinese dictionary. Ed Farrow believes New Bedford girls are missing something by not attend- ing N. B. T. S. while he is there, also that Mr. Crompton does not need an ear trumpet. We are sorry to hear that Gregory Meagher is to undergo an operation for appendicitis late in April. The first year general class were shown the ins and outs of reed manufact- uring at the Knowles Loom Reed Works. Mr. Knowles himself acting as escort. They agreed that Mr. Knowles is a prince. Only a few months to go, and everybody is working to beat — the high cost of living. June will soon be here and for that reason the beauty of spring is passing unnoticed by the lads who are studying so concientiously. Soon goodbyes will be said, grips packed, and the boys will be off for the summer. ■-h 49)§h. THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 FIRST YEAR DIRECTORY General Adams, James H. Farrow, Edward S. Meagher, Gregory F.

BASCBALL TEtfrS J r TAC r £ THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 LETTER MEN Levovsky Ted Carlson George Schofield " Georgie " Rawcliffe " Curt " Brotherson " Yes " Tripp " Bill " Bruce, Capt. " No " Tripp 4 52 ►- £ 1927 - - THE FABRICATOR j£ BASKETBALL COACH BRICKLEY ' S call was responded to by about twenty candidates, among these were five varsity men from the 1926 team, namely: — Capt. Bruce, Schofield, Fred and Francis Tripp, and Levovsky. After a few weeks practice the squad was cut to nine men. The first game played was with the crack Rhode Island State Quintet. While we were outscored and outplayed, we scored more points than Yale did against R. S. The team then journeyed to M. T. T. at Boston and were again defeated by a superior five. At this time the team suffered a great loss when Coach Brickley was obliged to resign because of ill health. We were fortunate indeed in procuring the services of Mr. Milton Schofield who is the well known center of the New Bedford Professionals. The boys went over the road to play the United States Coast Guard Acad- emy at Hartford. This was undoubtedly the best game of the season and was lost by only three points. The squad will never forget the courtesies shown them and the hospitality of the Cadets. Our next game was with Dean Academy, Prep. School Champions whom we defeated by a good score. We broke even with our old rivals, Durfee Textile, each " copping " a game. The game at Lowell Textile was snatched from us in the last few minutes of play. The last game of the season was with Rhode Island School of Design. They used many football tactics. Our boys put up a sterling game throughout the season and finished the season in a blaze of glory. Capt. Bruce led the team well at all times and instilled a wonderful fighting spirit in the team. George Schofield, Captain-elect, played a strong game at guard. The " Heavenly Twins, " Fred and Francis Tripp, had the opposing players baffled as to which was making the baskets and which the fouls. George Levovsky, George Rawcliffe and Curt Brotherson were bul- warks of defense and scored their share of the baskets. Much must be said of the work of our manager, Ted Carlson, whose untiring efforts throughout the season resulted in a smooth running schedule. The school as a whole wish to thank Coach Schofield for his services which were so kindly given. They are appreciated more than words can express. ■ : { 53 }P° THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 BASEBALL WITH but 3 varsity men to form nucleus of the 1927 baseball team it seems that just a " Fair " season may be predicted. At the time of this writing they have suffered an unexpected defeat at the hands of Holy Family High. " Lack of practice " was the cause, and it may be well to know the fact, though offering no alibi, that we have but little time to practice as we get out of school at 4.30 P. M. With the graduation of Mullarkey, Rooney, Carlow, White, Mills, Hathaway and McCraw, all seasoned men before entering Textile it will be quite a task to fill these berths. " Chick " Wareing our famous left fielder of the ' 25 and ' 26 season is back again ready to do or die, and he sure can do. Ed Waring will also be with us and will stand with Levovsky in regards to showing the twirling. Ed will go great this year as he is a little heavier and taller. " Curt " Brotherson our quiet boy of whom there is quite a bit rumored, is going to cover shortstop once more, and no doubt will turn in a creditable showing, as he did last season. Ex-captain Searles and " Chuck " Fead have decided to withdraw from the limelight and be just plain hard working students. This decision of Searles and Fead was quite a blow to the boys but studies are studies and baseball is baseball. There are members of the freshmen class who boast of some High School experience. Such men of Ed Lincoln, " Ad " Twordowski, Roger Turgeon, Ed Farrow, Jim Adams, " Dan " Sullivan and Young Drosek are sure going to help some. Ed Lincoln, Julius Soler and " Dan " Sullivan are to fill the catching berths and there is no doubt in the writer ' s mind but what the position will Hg( 54 )|h 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR be well filled. If any of these three young men can fill the position as good as " Red " Mullarky who is now an alumnus, the coach will and should be very well satisfied. With but two pitchers on which to depend, although George Levovsky has had considerable in his past two years and Waring ' s scholastic and twilight seasoning will certainly help some, it is a gamble whether he can outwit an extra heavy hitting team of which our present schedule may run into. First Base will be covered by Ed Farrow or " Yimmie " Adams. Second Base will have Twordowski stopping balls in its territory, and McDonald as a utility if an accident should occur to Twordowski, while " Curt " Brotherson and Anderson will play short. Drosek ' s three bagger and homer in the Holy Family game has made his position as regular third baseman quite secure. Ted Carlson and Manager Schofield will be used as utility men. The outfield consists of " Chick " Waring, " Fran " Tripp, Allan Blackmer and Turgeon. This gives us a squad of 1 8 men who are ready to step in and take a man who would have a bad day or accident or injury. This club only takes in a man who during the year has by some real ability shown the makings of a ball player. Last year ' s team consisted of some good men and their accomplishments are worthy of space in this article. Mullarkey knocked the ball through the Providence College fence with 3 men on, also Sam White who knocked the ball into a farmyard at Hyannis, and our present captain, George Lavovsky who circled the bases by clouting a homer at Buttonwood against Holy Family. The boys can recall some pretty good times on the trips, especially when some of the boys had dates in Boston and some at home here with but one bus. Volumes could be filled with more of these minor jokes that the boys played on each other. There is much praise due to Manager Schofield and Assistant Manager Borden for the manner in which they have executed their duties. Schofield has done real well by collecting the following schedule for us. THE FABRICATOR - - 1927 THE SCHEDULE Holy Family at home. Bridgewater Normal at home. Durfee Textile at home. Massachusetts Institute of Technology at Boston. La Salle Academy at Providence. Durfee Textile at Fall River. Holy Family away. St. John ' s Prep at Danvers, Massachusetts. Vocational School away. Rogers High School at Newport. Although many more invitations from Colleges and Preparatory Schools were received we were allowed but 10 games, and with our team as mentioned above, all we can say is we wish you luck, boys, with the rest of the games. April 21 April 30 May 3 May 7 May 10 May 14 May 17 May 19 May 25 May 28 TENNIS r I HE tennis team is now practicing daily in the gymnasium in preparation ■ ■ for the spring matches. The school, having lost all of their letter men through graduation, will have to build up an entirely new team. In looking over the candidates ' some of the most promising are Snell, Moore, Bruce, Sulli- van, Macia and Searls. All of the home matches this year will be played at Buttonwood Park. Last year ' s team made an enviable record which the boys of this year will have to " step " to equal. The schedule as prepared my Manager Fred Tripp is not complete. 56 - THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 DELTA KAPPA PHI FRATERNITY Oldest Textile Fraternity in America Organized 1899 Incorporated 1905 ACTIVE CHAPTER ROLL DELTA — New Bedford Textile BETA — Lowell Textile GAMMA — Rhode Island School of Design ALPHA — Philadelphia Textile ALUMNI CHAPTER ROLL Boston Lowell Philadelphia New Bedford New York 1927 Bruce, William Fead, Charles Gallagher, James McDonald, Thomas J.

They renewed old acquaintances, talked over the summer vacations and met future members. Then they went into the office and enrolled and took the rest of the day off. Next day we were back at the old grind. We lost twenty members by grad- uation and at once looked about to see if there were any around to follow in Claude Davis ' s footsteps or to reestablish the " Lab Cafeteria " that had been run so nobly by the " Terrible Two " (Murphy and Burt.) Delta Kappa members held many meetings during the fall and went on several theatre parties. Our first social endeavor was to put over a good dance, one that would be enjoyed by everyone. We lived up to our expectations and enjoyed such a treat in Duff ' s Hall, January 10th. Early in the fall a private party was held at Long Pond and was considered a decided success. Borden furnished us with all the eats (Yes — Borden) we could put down and " Red " Lawrence took a week ' s pay from Jack Skinkle. We had three members on the Varsity basketball five and our fraternity team of " Chuck " Fead, Francis Tripp, Bill Bruce, " Casey " Searls and Fred Tripp defeated the Phi Psi Fraternity for the championship by a score of 26 to 16. We shall probably have Ed Waring, " Chuck " Fead, Blackmer, " Casey " Searls and Francis Tripp on this year ' s baseball nine. We took in eight new members at the mid year in February, namely:- — Norris, Pilkington, Quinn, Kenneth Tripp, Mollins, Turgeon, Morton and Rodalcewiz. Their initiation was a decided success, as Turgeon could not sit down for a week and it was even longed before " Joe " Norris got all the ketchup off his leg.

The fair Freshmen had hardly opened their innocent eyes before they were rushed all over the lot by zealous Phi Psi men who hurried to show the new men the splendors of night life at Coco-Bola and Lincoln Park. In fact the Freshmen received more lectures on how to " Cherchez-la femme " in New Bedford than how to put on the cap and gown swiftly. Our Banquette and Smoker was a big success with all the Faculty members and Grand Officers present. It was noticed that some of the boys didn ' t have to buy smokes for weeks after cleaning up all the " Buts " in sight at the Ban- quette. Take some good advise Phi Psi men try and sit near Mr. Holt when Smokes are passed around as he doesn ' t smoke and neither does he carry them off to a sick brother. Scarcely had the last ciggaret left from the Smoker been used up when we held Open House. Again the boys stocked up and attended to the inner man in a right smart manner. When our Pledges paraded to school on the first day of their probation they certainly knocked New Bedford silly. Eleven came sauntering down the street with Black Skull Caps with a Gold button. They were so good that they got their pictures in the papers. Lucky the photographer didn ' t come around a couple of weeks later as Clif Pierce looked like Santa Claus with the beard he had grown. 1927 - - THE FABRICATOR All New Bedford watched the open initiation. Adams knows all about the mashers who try and pick up innocent girls. He made such a darn nice girl that the boys were sorry that his name wasn ' t Ophelia or Hepzabah. Imagine how the poor Drug Store Cow Boys felt when after they had asked Jim to step out with them to be told in no feminine voice " Get to out of here or I ' ll hang one on your chin. " Sloane ' s liniment. Blister cures, and Pillows were at a premium after the Big Night when Holmes played coachman for half the fraternity. Whoa, Ches- ter. The candidates received the shock of their lives when they found out how really hot that quiet Loud boy could make them. Tommy liked to hear noises and made many candidates " weary and sick unto death. " If wishes could come true Carroll would have had two paralyzed arms, (the candidates wishes). By the time that the boys were full fledged Phi Psis the house of David were mere children in comparison. More than one pledge swore he was afraid to go by a Barber ' s after dark. Our Dance turned out to be a Social and financial success. The Christmas party was a Wow and it was learned for the first time that Beta had a second Ingersoll in Meagher. At the skating party previous a un- godly licking was taken by Loud and Carlson. Witness the fact that after that 00-3 ' $ " party Macia had to help Carlson undress. After mid-years we pledged seven more new men who donned the " cute " little caps and bade their barbars a fond farewell. Again the boys smoke when they want to, not when they can afford it! We are sorry to say that we lost Win McKay one of our best boys, who left school at the end of the first semester. He ' ll be back next term we hope. Phi Psi will only lost seven men by graduation but they are all real fra- ternity brothers in every sense of the v ord and Beta is sorry to lose them and wishes them the best of luck in their work. The twenty-fourth annual convention of Phi Psi will be held in New Bedford on April 22-23-24. Judging by the plans and preparations this will be the biggest time ever put over by any Chapter of Phi Psi.

Alumni were present from New York, Boston, Phila- delphia, New Bedford, Providence and Fall River. The convention this year was held the week end of April 8th, 9th and 10th, in Philadelphia. The affair was started by a dance at the Locust Club, Friday night, followed by a theatre party on Saturday afternoon.

THE FABRICATOR - - 1927 ALUMNI ASSOCIATION TO the members of the graduating class. We extend to you the very sincere wishes of the Alumni Association of the School Worth While. We hope that you will be fortunate in securing a position in some of the varied fields of textiles, and successful in becoming a master mind in your chosen career. You will soon cease to be a student of the New Bedford Textile School, and become an Alumnus of the School Worth While. As a graduate of the New Bedford Textile School great things will be expected of you, and it will be your duty to show to the textile world that you can maintain the high standard that has been set by former graduates of your school. No matter what part of the world you may go to it is quite possible for you to meet some of your old school graduates, for students have come from and gone to all parts of the world, and it is har d to find a textile center in any part of the globe that has not got a representative of the New Bedford Textile School. The Alumni Association should be represented by you. It should never be forgotten by you. You should make it your duty to see that every student who has graduated becomes, and what is more important, remains a member of your association. With every graduate a live member we could forge a chain that would encircle the globe. We all need each others help and this association could be made the common meeting ground of all; the exchange and mart of all ideas for progress and efficiency. Will you as a member of this graduating class help us to get a membership of 100%. The fee is low, only $1.00 per year, the aims are high. If we could be sure of the support of every one who has been a graduate of our school we feel sure we could be of great service to each other. If you sent your fee to the school every year in the month of June, the Red Letter Day of the beginning of vour career, it would be appreciated and it would help to form a fund that would enable your committee to arrange times and places where we could all meet together to renew old acquaintances, and what is more meet new friends whom we ought to know. We would like to have a Reunion of all our graduates every year in the month cf June, the Saturday before the Graduating Exercises so that the graduating class members could get in touch with the older graduates who are holding good positions, and by meeting them and making their acquaintance, get the courage and help they need to start them on their journey in life. The Alumni Association has never been very active because it has been left to a few. This should not be so, it belongs to every graduate and if it can get your moral and financial support it can become one of the greatest factors for success in your school and the textile world.

You need it to help you in your work. There is work for every member of this associa- tion. Nothing that is worth while succeeds without work. A few of the older graduates of the school have held the association together, and have never let the alumni die out. They are trying to make it a bigger and better Alumni, but cannot do it alone and they know it. They want your co-operation and advice in the work of building up this great chain of graduates that stretch from one side of the universe to the other. You know that, " In Unity there is Strength. " The school has done all in its power to help you and will continue to do so. We ask you as a small return to help us build up this, your Alumni Association, so that when we meet together you will feel that this Association is some of your work, and that you are proud of it. In conclusion we hope when after a few years and you have reached a position where you will require good men, and true, you will keep in touch with your Alma Mater. That you will always be willing and anxious to help either a younger graduate or a fellow member of the Alumni Association of the School Worth While who has not been so fortunate as you.

Vacation: The departure for home, with new suits, with stiff collars and writing paper which were never used. Back again to school, demanding another week to rest up. Jan. 12. Delta Kappa Phi Dance. The success of this affair was due to the untiring efforts of the Tripp twins, Elliot Borden and Allan Blackmer, who brought Harold Williams and his orchestra to Duff ' s Large Hall for the merriest time of the year. We shall remember it always as an evening of laughter, music and good fellowship. Jan. 28. Election to the Student Council. Some of the replies received during this election, to some of the serious questions would do Will Rogers credit. After one hour and twenty minutes of argumentation a Council was elected to the satisfaction of every one concerned. Feb. 15. Phi Si Dance. Again we saw dim lights, flashy gowns, soft music, syncopated jazz that beat with the very life of the dance. Nothing more nothing less, a good time was had by all. March 28-April 4. Spring vacation. More good times. Back to school with a firm determination to do some hard studying to pass the final exams with flying colors. Now for the sad story. A secret committee of the Senior Class have voted upon the following, hoping the gentlemen concerned will take no offense, but in good fellowship as they have taken the jokes in the past. -4 72 ►=- 3c 1927 - - THE FABRICATOR £ Fattest. Tom Boomer, who won the leather covered Blackstone, gave Elliot Snell a bitter fight for the fattest and won by a neck. Tightest. This was the one of the most bitterly contested in the History of Textile. Gallagher was given a thrilling contest by Quinn and Haskins. Fead started in the race, but someone dropped a penny and he withdrew to pick the copper up. Gallagher was pushed on the home stretch as Quinn tried to elbow by, but the news that Gallagher had sent a night letter during the eclipse gave him the title. Haskins was forced in the corner by Quinn and took third place. Cutest. " Chick " Waring, Padanaram ' s very own was awarded the popular title after Ruberstein ' s campaign money had run out and his voters deserted him at the last minute. Best Student. " Bill " Bruce won the undisputed title in this class, by his genius and matter. He wasn ' t even pressed by the rest of the mob. Best Athlete. George Lavoskey was accorded this honor, having played Varsity Basketball and winning the captaincy of Ball Team for this season. Best Dancer. Tom McDonald won the silver loving cup by cutting the tape a full yard ahead of " Dinty " Moore. Parlor Sheik. After a deadlock of 15 minutes " Casey " Searles over " Chuck " Fead and won the title of " Porlor King. " Wittiest. " Dinty " Moore won in a walk. His stories and wise cracks made him famous even with Mr. Acomb who never got the point on the first recital. Best Natured. Davis with his smile and tenor voice romped off to an easy win in this contest. Handsomest. There was a big fight for this honor and " Chuck " Fead honestly won from Lee Holmes as the best looking sheik in the class. Favorite Sport. " Crashing the gate " was one of the leaders. " Dancing in crowded Ball Rooms " was another. " Saving milk bottles " received quite a few votes. Why did you come to New Bedford? This was a heart-breaker. Some one said the cops closed in on him, another collegiate said he didn ' t know any better. - { 73 h 19 2 7 THE FABRICATOR -2 ROMANCE AND ADS The average magazine story these days starts off with a half a dozen paragraphs draped around an illus- tration, then jumps with a spurt into the advertising sections, where it trickles along between canned milk and floor wax. Dozing over a short story the other evening, while it cavorted dev- iously through the advertising pages, we arrived at the following bissare combination. The path wound in and out through the meadow, not far distant .... from contented cows. On a fence rail near by a bobwhitc perched and sang .... your drug- gist carries it. The summer day was ideal .... for sprains and stiff joints: the rays of the descending sun bathed the landscape .... fresh every hour. Halfway down the path they came to a shady nook .... recom- mended by generations of users. She was conscious of his manly form .... built of white pine and reinforced at the corners. Her com- panion was, she thought to herself, a veritable prince .... one of the fifty-seven varieties. As for him, he could not take his adoring eyes off her .... the world ' s most perfect talking machine. He felt an irresis- table impulse to tell her how much he loved her .... combining the purest ingredients. He longed to pour out his passion and .... sweeten it with Domino. He stroked her hair .... so different from the ordinary macaroni, where she nestled close to his side ready to .... re- fuse substitutes. " Dearest, " he mur- mured at last .... looking like new. " Dearest, this is the moment I have longed for .... because of its pleasing flavor. " She did not answer at once. Her thoughts seemed far away .... at the nearest grocery. He took her hand in his, and held her close . . . allowing the skin to breathe, " Will you be mine? " he questioned in a tone .... recommended by boards of health everywhere. " You want me for your wife? " she asked, her voice .... low and comfortable. " Yes, " he nodded, swallowing hard beneath his collar which .... hasn ' t scratched yet. " Then before I accept, " she went on, " don ' t you think you ' d better .... ask the man who owns one? " " If you mean your father, " the young man answered, " I ' m sure he ' ll give his consent. Just name the day, and I ' ll .... keep the contents hot for twenty-four hours. " He folded her in his arms, and his kisses were .... supplied direct from the factory. " Sweetheart, say that you ' ll be mine, " he repeated, " Very well, dear " she whispered, " I ' ll .... try it for thirty days, " whereupon he kissed her again and again .... showing many differ- ent styles and patterns. 4) 74 } WIT HUMOR THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 CHEMISTRY FOR THE SIMPLE MINDED SOLUTION Mr. and Mrs. Molecule of this city- have just received word from their daughter Mrs. Atom, of the birth to the Atoms, of twins of equal weight and volume, one named Positive, the other Negative. Their father claims that they will be heavy charges when they are older. Mrs. Molecule was quite broken up over the matter, as she fears her grandsons will paint the litmus red when they grow up. Both of the twins are already in love, little Positive being strongly at- tached to Miss Ann Ode. Young Negative has a great affinity for Miss Cath Ode. Both young ladies are Poles. Mrs. Atom considers this a base action. Although she is bringing great pressure to bear against Mr. Atom, he is maintaining equilibrium. The twins are neutral. Fresh Guy: " Say, Bill, when day breaks, where do the pieces go? " " What would you do if you were in my shoes? " " Get ' em shined. That ' s what I ' d do. " " It ' s all over school. " " What? " ' The roof, my child, the roof. " Breathes there a man with a soul so dead, who ne ' er to himself hath said. As he stubbed his toe against the bed, !!!??? XXX ? ! He: " What shall we do to-night? " She: " I ' m willing to do whatever you do. " He: " But we ' ve only been ac- quainted two days. " " What! No candy! What kind of a chemistry department is this? " OUR QUESTIONAIRE Does the fact that a cord has flats make it musical? See Snell. How many tobacco chewers equal one humidifier? See Messrs. Loud and Boomer. Who made the first one tooth gear? See Taft. If automatic stokers are installed, can the shovel and slice bar be sold? See Rubenstein. Is our Corliss engine used for heat- ing purposes only? Also by Ruben- stein. What are volts per square inches? Boomer again. If New Bedford had 3,416 more residents, what would it be? See Moore. What was the greatest tea party ever held in Boston? If you drop a nickel in a slot machine and get neither gum nor money back, what will you say? The answers to these will be found in our 1928 edition of The Fabrica- tor or by interviewing the foremen- tioned students. He was only a poor machine shop student but he had the jack. It ' s impossible to tell the Tripp Twins apart. They even borrow money from each other without knowing it. Women, Women everywhere and not a one can think. " Oh Concrete, look at the woman next door. " Don ' t be so vulgar, Paregoric, turn out the light so she can ' t see us looking. " 4 76 - THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 Bill: " Doesn ' t he dress nattily? ' ' Carrol: " Who ' s Natalie? " Why do they call her the ad girl? She believes in display. A FEW OF THE BEST SIMILIES OF 1926 Bashful as a sophomore in a rac- oon coat. — Anon. Slick as an oyster in a bottle of castor oil. — Anon. Mean as the man who gave a hom- ing pigeon for a birthday present. ■ — Anon. Unfriendly to the touch as a horsehair sofa. — Charles Brown. Fell over softly as a dying cream puff. — George Chappell. Brutally frank as a passport photograph. — Irvin S. Cobb. A flapper is like a bungalow, painted in front, shingled in the rear and nothing in the attic. — Richard Henderson. Nervous as a jellyfish on a Ford fender. — Judge. Full of bad manners as a Pitts- burgh stogie is full of burlap. — George Nathan. No more nerves than a set of false teeth. Photoplay. About as thrilling as a phonograph record of a Liberty Loan speech. — Robert Sherwood. Necessary as black sauares in a crossword puzzle. — New York World. Commonplace as garters to a bus conductor. — Life. Cop (to a man driving past a Stop sign) : ' Hey there, can ' t you read? " Motorist: " Sure I can read, but I can ' t stop. " " What did Gladys have when she lost that strip poker game? " " A royal blush. " The tightest Scotchman in the world is the one who starved to death in a continuous picture house after getting in on a Comp. He calls his sweet woman Toma- toe ' cause no one loves him like his little Tomatoe can. NO! Last word in closed cars. " What time is it? " " I ' m a little fast. " " I know, but what time is it? " He: " I asked her if I could see her home. " He: " And what did she say? " He: " She said she would send me a photo of it. " " George, ver are my glasses? " " On your nose, fadder. " " Don ' t be so indefinite. " " I have a good job at the con- fectioner ' s. " " What do you do? " " Milk chocolates. " " Did you know that Freddie talks in his sleep? " " No! " " Well, it ' s true; he recited in class to-day. " 77 ►- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 7 Soph.: ' You want to keep your eyes open around here to-day. " Fresh.: " What for? " Soph.: " Because people will think you are a fool if you go around with them shut. " At the phone: " Hello, Hello, who is this? " At the other end: " How in Hell do I know? I can ' t see you. " " I feel musically inclined to- night. " " Then why not go over and string Viola. " She: " Do you know you would make a wonderful fireman? " He: " How ' s that? " She: ' You never take your eyes off the hose. " Instructed: " Is this theme orig- inal? " Freshman: " No, I wrote it my- self. " " Heard the multiplication song? " " Nope, what is it? " " How many TIMES. " " Why do you suppose they call this a gridiron? " " Maybe because so many fish are laid flat on it. " " Retter lower the shades, Mary. " " Why? " " Two below outside. " " Well, everything I say goes. " " Come in and tell it to the Ford. " " How come you heard about Tom carrying his liquor in a paper sack? " " Oh, it just leaked out. " " I can ' t keep my date to-night. " " What ' s the trouble? " " Well, if I kiss Rose, I ' ll give her Marie ' s cold. " May: " Don ' t kiss me, Charlie; I think my love is weakening. " Charlie: " Yes, very! " " You are my flame of love! " " Hot stuff. " He: " Name the five senses. " Ruby: " Nickels. " She: " So glad to see you — just finished my beauty sleep. " He: " I must be early, don ' t you want to rest some more? " " Where is Bill? " " He ' s in the Florida real estate game. " " What doing? " " Awaiting developments. " That girl with a purple hat on is sure well put up. " " Oh, sort of canned, eh? " Loud: " Do you gamble? " Bruce: " Sure thing. " Loud: " Piker! " Lead: " How long are you going to be in the bath tub? " Casey: " Oh, about five feet six. " Moore: " Mary told me you kissed her last night. " Boomer: " Don ' t believe all the idle boasting you hear. " She was only a saloon keeper ' s daughter but I liked her mug. -4 78 ►- cTdr u ell ON THE SUBJECT OF ADVERTISING AND WHAT IT MEANS TO THE ANNUAL WE who have enjoyed the 1927 FABRICA- TOR are greatly indebted to the business men who so generously contributed to our advertising section. We believe that their contribution to our book was prompted first by their belief in the value of advertis- ing, and second by their interest in the success of our Annual. Therefore it is only right that we should help those who help us. When we have any business to give, let us consider first those who made it possible for us to publish a successful 1927 FABRICATOR.

How much humidity is a question of location, building construction, power consumed and air change. If the customer will decide what condition he wants, the problem becomes OUR, ENGINEER Not a salesman ' s promise, but a matter of fact ; of how much evaporated water is necessary. If it is not thought desirable to accept our data, the custo- mer ' s engineer can figure this out. The value of a humidifying equipment lies in its proven (I said proven) ability to evaporate a definite amount of water as, when and if wanted. We not only guarantee to evaporate this pre-determined definite amount of water but no contract of ours is complete until it is proven to the satisfaction of the customer. 1 Parks -Cramer Gompariy Engineers Contractors Industrial Piping and Air Conditioning Viichbnvg Boston Charlotte ' jt f£- z £i -} £ 7 ts 3 My J a { ?
