FRANK HOLDEN, IN SINCERE APPRECIATION OF HIS INTER- EST, COUNSEL, EXAMPLE, AND TEACHING DURING OUR YEARS AT SCHOOL, THIS VOLUME OF THE FABRICATOR IS DEDICATED. MR. SMITH Principal MR. SMITH IS ONE WHOM ALL THE SCHOOL RESPECTS. HE HAS WON THIS RESPECT THROUGH HIS CLOSE CONTACT WITH THE STUDENTS AND HIS INTENSE INTEREST IN THE ATHLETIC AS WELL AS THE SCHOLASTIC STANDING OF THE PUPILS. THEREFORE WE. THE CLASS OF 1928, WISH TO LEAVE AS A LAST ACT, A VOTE OF THANKS TO MR. WILLIM SMITH, PRINCIPAL OF THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL, FOR HIS ADVICE AND GOOD FEELING TOWARD US. WHEN THE WHALING INDUSTRY PASSED FROM NEW BED- FORD THE COTTON MILL CAME TO TAKE ITS PLACE. AT THE PRESENT TIME THE COTTON INDUSTRY OF THE CITY IS THREATENED, BUT WE, THE SENIORS OF THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL HAVE FAITH IN OUR CHOSEN CALLING AND IN OUR CITY AND BELIEVE THAT THE INDUSTRY WILL SUR- VIVE ITS PRESENT CRISIS AND EMERGE SOUNDER THAN BEFORE. PREFACE WE, THE STAFF OF THE FABRICATOR WISH, IN PRESENTING THIS BOOK TO THE SCHOOL, TO ACKNOWLEDGE OUR APPRECIATION OF THE HELP AND ASSISTANCE GIVEN US BY MR. M. H. CROMPTON AND OTHERS, TO MAKE THIS PUBLICATION A SUCCESS. THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 -hK 10 - 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR CHEMISTRY, DYEING AND FINISHING DEPARTMENT IT was here that we joined in the pursuit of the " elusive atom " and learned whence came ninety percent of the noise, all the odors and the weird com- binations of colors with which the socks, obtained by fair means or foul from the Knitting Department, were dyed. We also struggled here with the mysteries of inorganic and organic chem- istry, qualitative and quantitative analysis, textile chemistry, dyeing and fin- ishing, more popularly known as wet wash. Mr. F. E. Busby, assisted by Mr. F. L. Weymouth, Mr. Abram Brooks and Mr. Broadfoot, proved to be very capable instructors in the above mentioned subjects. The department is well equipped and has two laboratories fitted up with all the apparatus necessary for analytical and experimental chemistry. The Finishing Department is equipped to handle the cloth as it comes from the loom and turn it out finished, ready to be put to the use intended for it. «f 11 THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 4 12J 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR THE WEAVING AND DESIGNING DEPARTMENT THE Weaving and Designing department trains the students to fill positions as designing, weaving and commission house executives. In the design room creative design work, advanced Jacquard designing, color, cloth analysis and structure are studied in detail. The Weave room affords the student opportunities for practical and theoretical knowledge of advanced power weaving of every description, includ- ing the preparation of warps for the loom. In this department the greatest assortment of looms in the world under one roof can be found. Work is carried on by the student on plain, box, dobby, leno, and Jacquard machines thereby enabling themselves to obtain a complete education in weaving and loom con- struction. Co-ordinating with the design room many elaborate patterns have been woven. Mr. Holt who has been with the school since its originating is head of the department. His unlimited knowledge of designing and willingness to impart it along with his untiring patience have produced hundreds of expert designers, many of whom are holding positions of great responsibility. Mr. Acomb in charge of the weave room along with his two able assistants Mr. Beardsworth and Mr. Moore, has kept this room up to date and is always ready to try out new ideas. Mr. Beardsworth ' s mill experience has proven an invaluable asset in helping students out of mechanical difficulties. Through the generosity of the various loom manufacturers and loom accessories companies the weave room has all the modern equipment necessary for such advanced study as carried on here. -4f 13 J|n- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 ■•«•§{ 14 }i - 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT THE Mechanical Department was primarily created to make the students in the school who were taking the various Cotton and Chemistry courses become acquainted with various things mechanical that they would be apt to come in contact with when they took up their life ' s work. Each year this department has been growing, until during the past year, the mechanical depart- ment was the largest department, in student hours, in the school. All students in the school regardless of the course they are pursuing must take the various studies provided in the curriculum of this department. A two year special course is offered to prospective students who wish to take only those things mechanical. During the first year the much liked and appreciated Mechanics take con- siderable of the students time along with Mechanical drawing. Next comes Steam Engineering, Machine drawing and Shop work which are given to the various classes to help them increase their general knowledge, and gives everybody more or less worry and bother. Electricity and Mill Engineering help the students to while away their last year in school and send them out into the highways with a good general knowledge of the Mechanical world which some day they will be glad to use. The Head of the Department Mr. Morris H. Crompton is ably assisted by Mr. William T. Walton and Mr. Adam Bayreuther, who have succeeded in por- traying some of their useful knowledge to the student body. -«g( 15 } - THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 { 1 6 }§•- 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR THE COTTON YARN PREPARATION DEPT. THE pillars upon which the entire textile business of cotton mfg. rests is without question the carding and spinning department. With this in mind the faculty has developed one of the most progressive departments in the school and their accomplishments (with the student co-operation) are well known thruout the world. Unfortunately this department suffered the loss of its instructor early in the fall of 1927, but Mr. Holden at that time assistant to Mr. Taft was temporarily promoted to fill the vacancy. Mr. Smith, the prin- cipal of the school with his unlimited knowledge of Cotton carding and spin- ning has assisted Mr. Holden in making this department the most interesting from the student view point. Mr. Woolam acting as assistant to Mr. Holden has afforded the student body every available opportunity of obtaining the highest peak of achievement on Picker, Card, and Drawing technicalities. Among the numerous advancements made in the past year the installation of the Woonsocket Hurricane Opener was the most notable. Although no small credit must be given to the testing room developments the installation of the Casablancas long draft system, Washburn lay draft and the Foster high speed winder. Mr. Manning head of the Knitting Department co-operating with the C. Y. P. Department has impressed upon both student and faculty the importance of a modern testing room. With the up to the minute machinery and experienced instructors in this department the student is assured of a complete knowledge of practical and theoretical Carding and Spinning of fine Cotton yarn, thereby enabling him to carry out into the trade new and modern ideas. -«{ 17 THEFABRICATOR 1928 KNITTING DEPARTMENT SOON after entering school we learned that there was a knitting department included in this institution of learning. It occupied the top floor of the southern wing of the school. Some of us were more or less acquainted with the spinning, weaving and designing work found in the textile industry but our knowledge of the knitting business was a minus quantity. As most of us were regular diploma students it required at least two years before we were officially introduced to the intricate working parts of the knitting machine and the exacting requirements both in yarn and finished product. For some reason or other, knitters are great fellows for traveling around, moving from one position to another, until it becomes a habit. Mr. Manning is no exception to the rule but during our three years at the school we have noticed that the equipment at the school has been much moved around and the layout changes so often it hardly seems necessary for him to travel any farther at least, for the sake of a change of scenery. He seems never to be satisfied and has replaced the old equipment with new and up-to-date machines and added considerable new equipment to his department, through the generous co-operation of the various machine man- ufacturers. -=«j{ 1 8 }[ - 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR First Building HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL The New Bedford Textile School was established by the Trustees of the New Bedford Textile School, incorporated in accordance with Chapter 475, Acts of 1895. The Board of Trustees was organized on Aug. 1st, 1895 with the fol- lowing members; Wm. L. Butler P. G. DeNormanville John Wilkinson George R. Stetson Robert Burgess Articles of corporation were adopted and George W. Hillman was elected clerk of the corporation. The first annual meeting was held Jan. 27, 1896, when the following officers were elected: William J. Kent, President, Isaac B. Tompkins, Jr., Treasurer, George W. Hillman, Clerk. David L. Parker Chas. O. Brightman George E. Briggs Rufus A. Soule Wm. J. Kent W. W. Crapo George W. Hillman Samuel Ross Oliver Prescott, Jr. Isaac B. Tompkins, Jr. 19 } THEFABRICATOR 1928 Building, Finance, Machinery, Education and Executive Committees appointed. In April 1897, the City of New Bedford appropriated $25,000 for the use of the school. Annual meeting was held Feb. 1 898. The following officers were elected: George E. Briggs, President, Isaac B. Tompkins, Jr., Treasurer, George W. Hillman, Clerk. March 18, 1898 received $25,000 from the State of Massachusetts. July 12, 189 8, land bought and building committee authorized to prepare plans and procure bids for a building. January 30, 1899, C. P. Brooks was engaged as Managing Director. April 24, 1899, committee authorized to engage staff of instructors. July 24, 1899, first meeting of the Board held in the school building. School building dedicated Oct. 14, 1899. The officers of the Board of Trustees at the time of the dedication were as follows: George E. Briggs, President, Isaac B. Tompkins, Jr., Treasurer, Robert Burgess, Clerk. The school opened for day students Oct. 16, 1899, and for evening students Oct. 23, 1899. The first building was three stories, with small basement. The main building was 64 x 100 feet with an annex 12 x 67 feet on first floor for engine and boiler room. The power used was a small 40 h. p. engine with rope and belt transmission. Building, First Floor: General office, exhibition room or library and machine room for carding and spinning department. 2nd Floor; Two recitation rooms, Directors ' room and machine room for weaving and slashing. 3rd Floor; Two recitation rooms, the largest one used for design depart- ment, dark room for photographic work, machine room for spooling, winding and hand looms, and drawing. In 1902 it was decided to add two other departments, — chemistry and knitting. To do this it was necessary to add to the building. This addition was built onto the south side of the original building, three stories and basement. The first floor was used for two small class rooms, and a machine room for winding and warping; second floor for knitting; third floor for chemistry. Mr. Wm. E. Hatch was appointed President April 15, 1904. As the number of students in the evening classes was increasing very rapidly it was found necessary to add to the building again. This second addition was added in 1905. It was built on the south side, carrying the building out to the Maxfield Street line, three floors and basement. -■ { 20 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR This addition called for rearranging the departments and equipment. The engine and boiler room was placed in the basement of addition No. 2 and the power changed to electricity. The weaving room was moved to the new addition 2nd floor and the space vacated was used for spooling, warping and slashing which was moved from the first and third floors. The picking machinery was moved to first floor, first addition, and the carding, drawing, combing roving and spinning to first floor new addition. Two class rooms and a room for a machine shop was made in the old card room. At this time a Mechanical Course was put in. The North part of the third floor original building was used as a drawing class room and the Northwest corner of the old card room for a machine shop. This arrangement was carried along until 1911 when the recitation building was erected to the north of the original building and joined to it by two bridges and a tunnel. This addition was built principally for class rooms as it had been found practically impossible to carry on lecture and recitation work in rooms adjacent to machine rooms. -«8f 21 } - THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 This addition was three stories with full basement and was used by the chemistry department, mechanical department, design department, a large audi- torium on the 3rd floor, an exhibition room on 2nd floor, class rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors. This called for another general rearrangement of departments and equip- ment, the carding and spinning department taking the whole of the first floor of building 1-2 and 3 and the weaving the second floor of building 1-2 and 3, the knitting department rooms 2 and 3 of the 3rd floor. At this time a cotton classing room was fitted up on the 3rd floor. This arrangement was carried along until 1922 when the 4th addition was built. The Maxfield Street building was carried west to the line of the original building. This building was three stories without basement. The first floor was taken by the spinning department, the second floor weaving and the 3rd floor for a gymnasium. 22 )§►- 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR Present Building A number of changes which had been needed for a long time was made at this time. Locker and toilet rooms were provided on 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors. A shower bath room was connected with locker and toilet room on 3rd floor; a dra wing-in room was fitted up on 2nd floor; a cotton classing room with north- ern exposure and sky-light on 3rd floor. Also a small testing laboratory on 3rd floor. The original building contained 1 1 rooms with about 20,000 square feet of floor space. The present buildings contain 50 rooms with over 100,000 square feet of floor space. All departments are equipped with up-to-date machinery, especially designed for instruction purposes. The total value of the present equipment is over $275,000. About one half of the equipment has either been donated or loaned. The number of students attending the first year 1899- 1900 was: Day Students 11 Evening Students 183 The number of students 1927- 1928 was: Day Students 96 Attending 1576 -€(23 h- THEFABRICATOR 1928 HISTORY OF THE CHEMISTRY CLASS TIME! ! beating out the March of minutes has kept mankind advancing, battling, conquering, or failing. Yes--three years have passed, it seems, in an instant. We have advanced; met that which was set before us to master and are now taking up a new advance, fully prepared to conquer the new ob- stacles which will confront us during life. Three years have changed us from bashful " green freshmen " to the dig- nified Chemistry Class of 1928. Let us go back and see what we have been doing -- besides that necessary routine of study. September 1925: Ten bashful freshmen crossed the threshold of " The Lab " and were captured by the instructors and assigned to hard study for three years. After a few days, one pupil, (it must have been Adelsohn) , was caught whispering so we finally dared to get acquainted with each other and many other things in or in the vicinity of " The Lab. " How quickly we learned — where the acid cellar was, where Rock ' s Variety Store was and what Murphy and Burt had boiling in the dye pans every day. On " Blue Mondays, " " Red " Lawrence and " Heck " Rocha would strike up " I Never Knew " and what a mean duet they would sing. Skull caps, large bow ties, the call of the paddle and we were either a Delta Kappa Phi or a Phi Psi fraternity man. Cold weather -- Textile called her sons out to do or die on the basketball court. " Bob " Brickley, our dyeing instructor, took over the coaching job and the final cut found George Schofield and Fred and Fran Tripp on the first team. In baseball, Ed Waring held up the honors for our class. September 1926: Back at dear old " Tech " again. " Red " Lawrence and " Heck " Rocha were not with us and how we did miss those two songbirds! Studies became harder this term but we conquered all that opposed us. The small " Lab " was now the scene of our battle for knowledge and also -- " for our life. " By this time we had learned that there was CjH.-,OH in gingerale that H2O was good to drink and that HC1 was not hydrolic acid. " Borden ' s Cafe " succeeded " Murphy and Burt " and how well " Doc " kept Sully from talking, " Rad " from swearing and Adelsohn from jarring the bottle off of the shelves. While " Joe " Norris was arguing with Professor Brickley about the various secret formulas, such as KuP, one of us would go out and see " Rock. " On the basketball floor Schofield and the Tripp Twins kept the Chemistry Class on the map. " Ed " Waring and Fran Tripp played on the Varsity base- ball nine and " Sully " played on the golf team. -4 24 %» 19 2 8 " •» Bedford Tevtiu c u THE FABRICATOR September 1927: Dignified Seniors -- back at school again, rushing about, knocking instructors down and making Freshmen dissolve sulphur in HuO. We immediately took possession of the " Small Lab " and sold distilled water permits for ten cents. We were soon presented with many Technical Analyses and Mr. Busby took us " down cellar " to the " Land of Gray, " where we were soon taught what the difference was between a jig and a tenter frame. Oh, remember George chinned himself fourteen times. In the " Lab, " the Textile Goose strutted about making life miserable for anyone he stopped near. Social activities occupied all of our spare time, during our last half year; and here we are now at the close of our course and graduation day before us. Let us not forget all that " Tech " has done for us, our instructors who have labored so hard to teach us and all our fellow students. THE SENIORS FROM THE GENERAL SIDE ALL hail to the cap and gown. We find that after three years of crawling into that garment we are fast becoming experts in carrying our sex appeal as well as our personality while decked out in dear old Tech ' s C. G. This being our last year as students and the last for many of us as men of leisure??? We have tried to act as seriously as could be expected from a crowd of young men who have in their midst Turner, Peters, Soler, et al. The generals and designers have made several bids for fame during their three years here and the writer will endeavor to inform the world of some of the activities of the class members. However our class has been well represented in athletics, scholastic, and social activities with numerous side issues such as, -- well perhaps it would be best to let the rest go by default. We have been repre- sented on the Basketball court by Carlson and Brotherson, on the diamond by Brotherson, Carlson, Fawcett, Soler, and Blackmer, and on the Track team by Holmes, Potter, Carlson, and Brotherson. In the Freshman period of our existence Carlson managed to cop the Hatch Medal with Macia as runner-up. In our second year we were mainly interested in Athletics and Social events seeing that our class was not yet organized. In our Senior Year we blossomed out and went out for -- everything -- AND HOW. One of our number was elected President of the Class, that is Carlson, another was elected Treasurer, Brotherson. The General Class boosted Brotherson for Treasurer so that they could keep close tabs on the boys clothes and whether he took any long trips or smoked expensive cigars. ■4 25 fen- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE GENERAL CLASS Biswas — Native of India — addicted to chewing Betel nut with an ungodly crunching of jaws. He had much trouble in keeping up to the boys wise cracks and horseplay. Blackmer — Native of Needham — Fond of verbal debating with Mr. Acomb. Played Baseball and took Turner out for evening of picking up. He liked playing ball better than the picking Turner picked. Brotherson — unfortunate lives in New Bedford. — Only honest looking man in the class. As a result was elected Class Treasurer. So far his neckties are the same as the ones he had four years ago but he is closely watched. Played Baseball, Basketball, Class Treasurer. Carlson — New Bedford — Class never ceases to razz if he makes a mistake. Has a faint idea he is a painter after taking color with Mr. Holt. Played Basketball, Baseball, Manager Basketball 2 years, Hatch Medal, Class President. Fawcett — Rhode Island — Has one drawback — he plays a saxophone. The class has never forgiven him for this. Coined a new way to call Mr. Holt and save energy, merely bawls out " Sta ' Hoi. " Also carries the finest bay window in the class. Played Baseball. Holmes — N. B. — Has a mania for going to Textile school and is now a P. G. The only member of the class who smokes cigars on school days and really looks as though he bought ' em. After four years at Tech he is thinking of opening a soda fountain. Member Track team and self appointed Trustee of the school. Macia — North Brookfield — Lovingly called Runt, Shorty, Tiny, Shrimp, and others his family might read here. Loves to argue and somehow has developed a southern drawl, we presume from too much contact with Turners light?? lady friends. Peters — Padanaram — AAAAAAAAHHHHH. It. Sex appeal. Manliness. Answer to a maiden ' s prayer. The other half of the Turner-Peters feud. The only man of the class who has taken a pot shot at a sheriff during the hunting season. He also took a fine of Ten dollars. It is rumored that he borrowed the Ten from the same sheriff. Cause of his down fall — too popular with the fair sex. Can eat more candy than any six men and he eats it, not anyone else. Reason for Mr. Holt ' s additional grey hairs. 4 26 } ■ 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR Potter — N. B. — The manly blond. The class baby but oh my oh what a child. Smokes a pipe, goes to dances, (not alone) bowls, plays billiards and has other mild dissipations. Claims Marie Jacquard as one of his ancestors. Showed his contempt of his class mates by grabbing off a good job before he had grabbed off his sheepskin. Soler — Mexico (he couldn ' t help it he says). — Only comeback to all wise cracks is " SO ' s your old man. " Has managed to raise a slight down on his upper lip and is frantically twirling it every minute to get that real " Kulture Twist. " Always has a better one than you have to tell and can go you one better on all your escapades. Played Base- ball, ran in fat men ' s race — lost. Turner — Last residence New Bedford. Latest reports Sing Sing — Being the last of the list and fortunately the one of whom the most can be said. Raffles, Don Juan, and Simple Simon rolled into one. Has caused more disputes in class over the color of his lady friends than any 2000 men. Class swears he has become two shades darker than when he was a Freshman. Middle name is rumored to be SLEEP. Has been caught sleeping while shaving, sitting, riding, walking, eating, dancing, but never has been caught wooing Morpheus in class. That is the Class has decided that he doesn ' t sleep during lecture but just naturally dies. He is the other half of the Peters-Turner feud and has been brawling incessantly for two years with his adversary but if the fact must be known neither one knows what it is all about. In the future he will be a Western Union messenger boy no doubt as he dearly loves to run errands for the boys. Elected to the hall of fame as the only Textilian who promised to take three girls to a dance met them there and had a good time with the whole three. Outside of sleeping his only other bad habits are gambling, drinking, thieving, alienation of affections, arson, assault and battery, murder, and outlawry. He does chew gum. We are all genuinely sorry that our last year at Tech is drawing to a close and we sincerely hope that the underclasses will endeavor to uphold the stand- ards of the school as much as we have tried to do. -4 27 } - THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 HISTORY OF THE MECHANICAL SPECIAL CLASS LO! and Behold! See what the Mechanical Department drew from the Fresh- man Class of 1927! Peavey, Boutin and " Ken " Tripp! We entered the Machine Shop on the first day of school to become members of the " Black Gang. " Rodalowicz entered a few months later but he had already received the dope while attending night school the two previous terms. We saw ourselves first in the Machine Shop. With some satisfaction we looked ourselves over and began to enjoy each other. We seldom thought of our small numbers but when we did, we swelled visibly, for we were a fair looking bunch. Tripp and Peavey were stuck in with Gallagher and Quinn in Industrial Mathematics. They learned a great deal. The hours spent in Drawing were highly profitable under the guidance of Mr. Walton. However, we did think it was strange and a little hard that we should be expected to imitate Mr. Walton and draw as only good draftsmen should. We came back our last year, a much divided crowd. Peavey and Tripp spent most of their time in the drafting room while Boutin and Rodalowicz occupied their time in the shop. As a class we Specials have made little impression this year on the school because of our differing interests but as individuals some of us will long be remembered. Therefore it seems fitting that our history should be a history of individuals. BOUTIN: — is a product of South Middleboro. His strong point in his size and his muscle. Last summer he worked on the railroad (pick and shovel) , thereby earning enough money to purchase an Overland Car — Pride of South Middleboro — " To New Bedford and back once a day or to H — with ya! " RODALOWICZ: — if he was over in Poland he would be a big chief. He is a hard working, ever progressive lad. His only fault is he likes to talk or rather put in the last word. Some day he is going to offer pills of sunshine for the sick but we would rather have him offer pills of moonshine. " KEN " TRIPP : — " The human skull " says " Ken " " consists of thirty-two bones " — but — some skulls are all bone. Tripp is the Boy Wonder of the Mechanical Department and we know that he will succeed. PEAVEY: — As a Y. M. C. A. track man, Bob claims that Chicago ' s most popular sport is putting the shot. Some morning he is going to forget himself and begin to work. - 4 28 )§h- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 ARTHUR A. ADELSOHN ' Adie ' New Bedford High School Joke Editor of The Fabricator Chemistry A DIE ' is a very good student, quiet worker and is always willing to help a fellow student should he be called on. ' Adie ' came down to ' Tech ' after com- pleting his course at New Bedford High School and promptly made himself known to the friends and enemies of the school by his vociferous cheering at basketball games. His wise cracks do much towards livening up any dead moments that may occur in the " Lab " and we can always be sure of his Haw! Haw! Haw! when the jingle of a broken beaker rings out. We do not just know what ' Adie ' intends to do on leaving school but we are sure that whatever it is, it will be met with success for one who tries often and hard never fails to succeed. Good luck, " Adie " . -■ { 30 } ■■ 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR KHITISH CHANDRA BISWAS ' Kit ' John Marshall High School General 1 T was in the fall of 1925 when this young man arrived to join the ranks of the mill men. Khitish, big in heart and big in body, has a pair of black eyes and a smile that has won him many friends. Khitish, an idealist of life, is very fond of philosophy and dramatics and is also very much interested in his work, although he usually lets his mind take a trip to India, his native land, while a lecture is going on and wake up to find the class is all over. He is a personal friend of ' Monk ' Peters. When it comes to work they get along so -- nicely and how! He has proved himself a first class member of the Three Musketeers and quite apt at cooking during the few days vacation the other two have been enjoying. He is very fond of fresh air and fresh air is very fond of him??? He is very quiet, although we must not forget that ' still waters run deep. ' Whatever it may be, we wish ' Kit ' success in his mill career and no doubt he will attain it. -Hgf 3 1 }§ ■- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 ALLAN BLACKMER " Blacky " Lehigh University Special Delta Kappa Phi DLACKMER, better known as " Blacky, " is about the only one of us who has spent during his scholastic career, five days and four nights at school. When there is a meeting in progress, whether it be class or fraternity, and the door slams, it means " Exit Blackmer. " It has not met his approval. In the future, for expert (?) advice on steam, electricity or the cotton end of the industry, call on Mr. Blackmer but for advice on women, call on the firm of Blackmer and Othote. We all know " Blacky " as a good natured (that is, most of the time) , hard working young man and we see in the sweet bye and bye nothing but success, that is, after visiting Taunton a few more times. So success to you in whatever you attempt, Blackmer, whether it is matrimonial or business. ■ 4 32 )§►- 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR ELIOT F.

" Well, here is the proprietor. " Doc " will always be remembered by the boys in the ' Lab ' as the opponent of ' Joe ' Norris in daily debates over nothing at all. Eliot was one of the best liked fellows at ' Tech ' and his jolly disposition kept his class in good spirits during those ' try- ing three years. " If Borden should suddenly decide to work in other than the chemical field and should open up a Cafe, in the center of the city, it surely would be a dark day for The Blue Moon, Smith ' s and all the other restaurants. Borden was manager of this spring ' s baseball nine and he surely did great work for the team.

Little is known of Leon ' s home life but we bet that he awes the home folks by relating his experiences at the New Bedford Institute of Textile Engineering. Deep down under the outer cloak Leon is as good a friend as a fellow could wish to have during his school days. Although Leon is no speed artist, once he has mastered the facts of a problem they stick and because of this ability to retain facts we feel confident that he will succeed in the business world. 34 } •• 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR CURTIS S.

' Curt ' is equally versatile on the diamond and gym floor and if it were not for his knack of getting crippled, he would, no doubt, be a representative of the school at the Olympic games. No wonder the fair sex fall hard! Perhaps the most noticeable thing about Brotherson is his ready smile. ' Gloomy Gus ' himself had nothing on ' Curt ' , but his ever ready wit made even Dan Taft smile. Among other things ' Curt ' will readily vouch for the honesty of the class in Mr. Holt ' s department. ' Curt ' claims that he has bought at least seven rules and is still looking for the last one. He overlooks thesie slight de- predations because, as he says, " Boys will be boys. " Nevertheless when " Curt " starts his electrical school we will all go to him to get the dope we missed in Mr. Walton ' s rest period. ' Curt ' is a persistent plugger who usually accomplishes what he sets out to do. We feel sure his success is assured when he gets into the ' Mill ' . i 35 ]§►- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 THEODORE E.

Well, step up and meet Mr. " Ted " Carlson. Oh No! He won ' t bite! That is just his natural expression! He is a very popular boy and all the teachers delight in having him in their classes as he is so studious and agreeable. Every other day he is called out of class as Mr. Smith has something important to discuss with him. Mr. Smith! Yes! He ' s the gentleman in the office. As ' Ted ' was such a nice young boy he was elected class president, because the boys wanted a leader, someone that could lead them along the paths of right- eousness for his name ' s sake. Did I say studious? Well! Well! Many are the nights that he has burnt the midnight oil trying to solve why he and Adams cannot find any pretty girl on Purchase Street Sunday nights when they have the ' Caddy ' . But you know, girls, the car isn ' t everything. He ' s quite an athlete. His athletic prowess has pulled him through many a tight place. When he begins to talk, pay attention, as it is sure to be good. -4 36 } ■- 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR JOHN L.

John, the rotund lad from Acushnet, decided to learn more by leaving the mill and spending three years at the Textile school. John did good work as catcher on the baseball team but he was best known, though, for his ability with the ' sax ' . The moaning strains he produced from his instrument caused many feet to make the floors of Duff ' s and other halls hot. John intends to follow the cloth end of the industry so that some day we will see him as a converter in New York. - { 37fe THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 LEANDER HOLMES " Lee " Special Phi Psi HERE he is men — The man who made the North End of the town famous and Tech ' s only Post Graduate. Please note the absence of the stogie and examine his lower lip minutely. Babys cry for Castoria but when they grow up they cry for Lee. All fooling aside Lee can crack a joke with the best of them and the way in which he describes various events is enough to put Cobb, Ade, Witwer, and Lardner to shame. When Lee came back to school in the fall of last year we expected to see him sitting in confab with the trustees with the inevitable " seegar " set at a rakish angle. We are rather leary of saying good-bye to Lee here as who knows but what he will return again and perhaps be one of the faculty. However, we wish Lee the best of luck when he gets out " in the Mill " and we are very sure that the Lanky Textilian will make good. -■ { 38 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR WILLIAM F.

Right away he started to learn all the lessons that would prepare him for life ' s work. As Jack is a hound for night work, he may be seen either at the New Bedford Hotel or at one of the leading play houses with some hot mama. Although Jack did not know much about our city he soon found out where Pope Beach and Snow ' s Pond were, much to his delight. Of the two, he pre- fers Snow ' s Pond for in that quiet woodland he can study birds, especially swallows. Jack is surely a real sport and if anyone has any doubts, ask Pierce who was taken to a show and dance by Jack. But seriously, Jack is a hard worker and puts his mind on his studies and we feel confident that if he is as loyal to his work as he has been to his books and lessons in school he will be a successful mill man. -hK 39 } ■- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 THOMAS LEE NORRIS " Joe " New Bedford High School Art Editor of The Fabricator Delta Kappa Phi Chemistry WELL, by thunder, here is " Joe " Norris of the Chem lab, the young feller who receives mysterious epistles addressed in female handwriting. Often these letters have excited the curiosity of the lab class. Between running after Mr. Brooks and inventing a new sulphur dye with the initials A. B. J. N. tacked on to it, ' Joe ' manages to keep busy in the laboratory. His delight consists of two things, namely: engaging Mr. Busby in an argument as to whether or not he has started to work and having H S floating around in the air. ' Joe ' , however is willing to help anybody out when they ask him and is really an all around good fellow. Although he is not a member of any of the athletic squads, ' Joe ' certainly supports athletics with his — well, five letter word meaning power of speech. ' Joe ' s ' specialty is organic chemistry and some day we may read of or see ' Joe ' installed in his own laboratory and doing wonders for the world of chemistry. At least, ' Joe ' , we wish you luck. -hK 40 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR ROBERT PEAVEY " Bob " New Bedford High School Phi Psi Assistant Business Manager of The Fabricator Mechanical J WO years ago this speedy youth entered Mr. Bayreuther ' s gang and since then has been an invaluable assistant to the mechanical department. " Ask the Gen- eral and Chem men. " " Bob ' is surely some Mr. " Fix-it " when it comes to keeping the electric al and mechanical part of the school running. He was never late as he always got there ahead of everyone else and was gone again before the first one started. The " Slide Rule " was no mystery to " Bob " when it came to totaling line loss in Mr. Walton ' s favorite class and figuring the time before the class banquet. An air of mystery has always hung over " Bob " and his numerous fair friends. Nobody ever sees them but undoubtedly his clean cut appearance on drafting days has much to do with his popularity. Photography as practised in the blue print room and Harper ' s Studio prove conclusively that " Bob " has mastered another science along with an ardent interest in wireless telephone. When " Bob " enters the commercial field we feel sure that it will only be a question of time before he reaches the high altitudes of drafting and textile machinery construction. -Hg(41 } ■■- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 JOHN H.

Taking it all in all, he is a good fellow. We sincerely hope that John will aim high in his future life and will have a cheery one. $42}i 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR BENJAMIN R. POTTER " Bennie " New Bedford High School Phi Psi General WE all liked " Ben " from the first time we saw him and his popularity has never faded. The only fault we find in him is his bitter determination to give fair admirers the cold shoulder. He created a sensation at one of the school dances but never a glance would he return for all the wiles of the local sirens, notably a small brunette, whom he brutally rejected. His cruelty toward ' em doesn ' t prevent us from admiring his faithfulness and his dependability to do whatever he is supposed to do in school life. " Ben " just loves to sit up nights and plug away at his Jacquard design. We all admire him for this and envy his perseverance. He, as a result, is one of the shining lights of the school and his efforts have rewarded him with a train of surprising power. Although seriously inclined, he is always ready to lend a smile and help a friend in need. Our best to " Ben " through the years to come, the name and the boy will not soon be forgotten. -h6( 43 THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 CHARLES A.

As " Sully ' s " mentor he feels that he has done well as their vocabularies are now about on a par. " Rad ' s " chief pastime is breaking his record to Boston. Any Friday after- noon he may be seen flying over the road. We suspect that there is an attraction at the other end. " Rad " proved invaluable as assistant manager of the basketball team.

As far as we can find out he has been successful in getting results. Mathematics holds no problem too great for this master mind. His drawings of gears and cams show the value of his preliminary training. No doubt Mr. Bayreuther will miss his right hand man as Henry has helped considerably with the new men who entered school in February. Besides working in the machine shop two nights a week, Henry has been attending evening school at the New Bedford High School. With such a foundation carefully constructed we see no reason why he should not succeed as an engineer in the mechanical filed. -° €{ 45 j THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 GEORGE LOUIS SCHOFIELD ' Scho " New Bedford High School Basketball 1, 2, 3 Manager Baseball 2 Sport Editor of The Fabricator Phi Psi Chemistry L ET us introduce our star athlete.

He has attempted to start up hockey since he came to the school but the weather was too mild. All joking aside, George is going to North Carolina to continue his edu- cation. He is carrying the good wishes of the entire class with him and in 19?? we shall all be at the Olympics with him. -4 46 fy 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR JULIUS A. SOLER General WHO is the greatest cavalier in New Bedford? Julius A. Soler! This robust Mexican student arrived in New Bedford in the year of ' 25. Judging by his description of the beautiful Mexican Senoritas he must be lonesome without them. He and his two roommates must often feel the call of the wanderlust if the desertion of many landladies is to count. Soler is one of the many athletes of his kind who won his letter in base- ball and lost his bet in his track race, known as the Fat Man ' s Race, with " Tim " Rooney. Evidently Soler is not very chummy with the alarm clock as he ordinarily saunters into class about 9 A. M. with his usual excuse that he overslept. He is also famous for his many jokes, always told during class time. His weekly habit is attending the Olympia where you will always find him parked in the front row of the orchestra. He is a great chemist. In converting, he puts his hands in his pockets, walks around and does all the heavy looking on. His roommates give him credit for his cooking but some day he will make a chef as he had good experience at a summer restaurant in Nantucket where he was chief bottle washer. -4 47 )§►- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 CHARLES J.

The instructors have trusted him with special work and no tears have been shed by the " Profs " so we feel sure that he will make good as a chemist. It has been difficult to find " Sully " in the evening during the past three years -- we suspect women, not one, but many -- who knows? As editor of the Fabricator he has done great work. If hard work and perseverance mean anything he should have a great chemical plant started in a few years. " Sully " and " Rad " may be heard mumbling away in the Lab any morning after 8:30 -- we shall always remember them -- especially when something didn ' t bounce -- then the " Chem " classes were treated to some valuable orations. •••§{48 ]§•»- 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR KENNETH TRIPP ' Ken " New Bedford High School Delta Kappa Phi Mechanical flERE he is!

" Ken " has gained many friends among the students because of his frankness. Altho ' a weak heart has kept " Ken " out of athletics no one can accuse him of not supporting them. Whenever any help was needed, Tripp was always on deck, ready to assist to the best of his ability.

Our three years association with this triple threat has aided us greatly, in appreciating fully, that already high esteem in which he was held by all. Having achieved considerable fame in all branches of athletics at the New Bedford High School, " Fran ' s " coming to " Tech " was heralded as " a banner event. " It is only too well known that he came up to expectations as he served on both baseball and basketball teams. " Fran " has, however, secretly confidentially and otherwise informed us that his one ambition is to be a dancing teacher. He is without a peer in that respect and many a maiden ' s heart was caused to flutter by his asking her to dance, while many another has embraced the life of a nun because of despond- ency brought on by not receiving any attention from him. Casting levity aside, we have no doubt that " Fran " will rise to the same prominence in the chemical world that he has in athletics. 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR FRED R.

Fred has distinguished himself on the basketball court by his ability to sink baskets and to keep his opponent from doing likewise. He was the star of the Textile golf team for the past season. Since Schofield left the candy business Fred has supplied the boys with their refreshments. To do so, he ran a " speak easy " , lest we had to depend on the back window and Rock ' s. Aside from this, Fred is the hardest worker in the class and we are sure he will keep up his good work when he changes the scene of his activities to North Carolina State College.

As you walk through the weave room beware of bobbins flying as he is the champion bobbin thrower of the school. He also has a gondola so called -- " a run a block and push a block. " He is also known as an athlete, for spearing frost fish at Padanaram. Visit him at Acushnet Park and get a free ride on the dobby horses.

When noses were counted it was found that the class boasted of a larger number of students than on leaving school the previous June. This was due to the fact that those taking the Junior Course were now considered worthy to join their sedate fellow students, the General Class. No wonder our instructors groaned inwardly when calling the first roll. Who wouldn ' t look forward with misgivings to spending a year with a class that boasted of wire boys, doffers, ordinary pick and shovel artists, changers over, gentlemen of leisure and others whom it will be best not to mention! As usual the first weeks of school were fairly easy but it was not long before the boys started to groan under the double burden of Designing and Dye- ing. Yes, Dyeing is the word — for when the boys were not dyeing over the little custard cups, they were dyeing over mounting the little samples on the dye cards, (that is, when they mounted the samples.) Things were better than they seemed. The boys surely did astound the experts of the Dyeing and Fin- -••ef 56)3» - 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR ishing Industry for many a new way was found for the application of dyes, especially the one on " Dyeing in a Hot Bath. " Results of this course were soon seen in the flashy socks that were being worn. The coloring of the socks along with the gestures of the head positively identified a man as attending Tex- tile School. In C. Y. P. they went from the frying pan into the fire — in other words, from Pickers to Roving Frames. It was not long before they found out that " your guess was as good as mine " on the Twist Multipliers but in the end everything came out all right as results are what count. Judging from the " high grade " warp and filling yarn they sent up to Mr. Acomb, they got results. How- ever, they are glad that it is the First Year General instead of the Second Year General that is spooling that same yarn. On returning to school one Monday they found that they had lost their able instructor of Cotton Yarn Preparation, Mr. Taft. No more would they hear his " just a mite more, " " approximately " and many more of his famous sayings. It is with regret they look upon the passing of Mr. Taft and the class wishes him all the success in the world. Basketball found the class well represented and although none of them were members of the starting team, they were there when it came to filling in. The old adage was again proven — - " A team is as good as its reserves. " Adams, Sullivan and Winsper were the class representatives in basketball and they entertained the boys with stories of the games and the adventures which befell them while visiting far off cities. The story about the Revolutionary General ' s car made the biggest hit with the boys. Drozek, Adams, Pietevino and Sullivan were the class representatives in baseball and although the schedule has not started yet, if predictions come true, the team is in for a good season. For the first time in the history of the school, officers were elected in the Second Year Class. After a week of stormy campaigning by the candidates for office, the election took place and on counting the ballots, it was found that the following were elected: " Jim " Adams President " Cliff " Pierce Vice-president " Cliff " Brooks Secretary " George " Rawcliffe Treasurer The first class meeting was held the last week of March and plans were made for a Sophomore dance to be run two weeks after Easter. All the boys are set on making the affair a success. Time will tell the story. This class will go down in the books as the one that contained: •4 57] THEFABRICATOR 1928 " Jim " Adams — one half of the " Heavenly Twin " combination, the boy who has covered more territory in and around New Bedford than any other student of Textile School — and HOW! Jim is Class President, a member of Phi Psi Fraternity, the basketball and baseball teams, and honorable mention Hatch Medal. " Cliff " Brooks, better known as " Parson " or " Deacon, " divides his time between the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A., Mr. Holt and Mr. Acomb, the com- bination cannot be beaten, judging from the results obtained so far. " Cliff " is Class Secretary, a member of Phi Psi Fraternity, and, although quiet, quiet in that quiet, cozy way, he is a very busy boy and is one of the leaders of the club organized for shorter days and longer nights. Drozek, former member of the Junior Class, has but one passion in life, namely baseball. His idea of a good time is playing Soccer all day Saturday and Sunday. He is a member of Delta Kappa Psi Fraternity and of the base- ball team. " Ed " Farrow — " Like the seasons he comes and goes, whither no one knows, " very, very cozy, he hasi his public to satisfy and he surely does it. Ed is a member of the Phi Psi Fraternity. He is " The Human Joke Book, " ' The Heart Breaker, " " Don Juan " , " Old One Ball Himself, " and in other words, a true Textillian. Ed is also a member of Brooks ' famous club, " The Stay Up and Jump ' Em Club. " Ed is making all kinds of records but perhaps that should not be mentioned. " Greg " Meagher, the President of the " Stay Up and Jump ' Em Club, " gets more and goes more places on a street car than any other Textile student. He is the other half of the famous " We " combination in knitting and is the bane of all hotel managers. His room looks like a combination of the Pennsyl- vania, Prince George and Steamers Plymouth and Providence. In fact, Greg is thinking of starting a hostelry of his own. Rumors are afloat that he started one in Philadelphia. It was tough luck that he couldn ' t stand the strain. He is the only boy who sparred with his shadow in earnest and here ' s wishing him success in this summer ' s work. He will need it as he will be back to his old tricks again, Dyeing or Finishing. " Greg-gor-ee " is seen ducking about town with a box of chocolates under his arm. He is a member of Phi Psi Fraternity. Frank Pakula — " Pakula " is the one who found traces of the missing eagle on Adams, Carlson and Meagher. His big interests are the caring for eagles, pigeons and — ushers — at a well-known South End Motion Picture House. He is very serious at times and then every one watches him doubly sharp. Frank is just a member of the Second Year Class, but, Oh! what a member! Americus Petevino is a former member of the Junior Class. He is the boy who can talk silk and thinks Saturday and Sunday happen along so that he may play Soccer. Yes, he plays baseball, too, when he is not playing Soccer. -4 58) - 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR " Cliff " Pierce, Cape Cod ' s Own, is the boy who has a more questioning look than the Sphinx and asks more questions than — the man has not yet been found. He spends most of his time tinkering with a XXXXRadio set and has " got " everywhere but Heaven on the above set. " Cliff " takes an occasional flier at " Night " life. The boys know when he is about to step out because he always lights a long cigar, blows a couple of smoke rings and says — " What will we do. " His favorite expression is " How " and his favorite answer is " No, you ' re kidding. " Cliff is the Vice-president of the Class, the winner of the Hatch Medal and a member of Phi Psi Fraternity. " Dan " Sullivan — " Dan " is just " Dan, " that covers everything. He gets there but time means nothing to him, a member of the " Textile Ramblers. " He is famous for his experiments in the Chemistry Laboratory and can argue in Designing with the best of them. In fact, he has made " But, Mr. Holt, it goes this way, " a famous saying. He is very much interested in automobiles, from the General ' s to his own. By the way, he divides his time between tinkering with The " Auto and some one over in Fairhaven. Thus early in life, New Bedford is not big enough for him. Dan is a member of Phi Psi Fraternity and plays basketball and baseball. Chao Ming Yu — " Ming " is the boy who divides his time between Walnut Street and school. He is not very noisy but he can be heard at times all the way down to the center, especially on days when we have Chem Lab or when we are in the dressing room. Ming ' s taste for cigars is not so good. Ask Farrow, Sullivan and Meagher. They know. Fifty years from now the in- structors will be telling their students about Ming ' s books. As in the case of one of the other boys, Ming is Ming, that tells the whole story. Ming is the other half of the Foreign Club, the other half being in the Chem Lab. Ming is a member of Phi Psi Fraternity. The school year is drawing to a close and the class looks back with mingled feelings of regret and joy, regret because there is but one more year to spend in " Tech " and joy because they have learned many things through the unselfish efforts of their instructors and also because they are one step nearer to the end of their apprenticeship-school. -hj( 59 } ■ THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 SECOND YEAR CHEMISTRY JOHN LADINO is the lad who confines his activities to scholastic work and excels in steam and dyeing. Many members of the general class have blessed John while they were trying to match his color samples. He is famous for one thing, his seriousness. George Palmer — whose dimple is the envy of the rest of the class, delights in sleeping in lower berths on the Steamer Providence. He has the distinction of being the only man in the school who can go down Purchase Street and call half the girls he meets by name. James Pilkington — Jimmy is another soccer bug. In fact he divides his time between soccer, steam and his CAR, which resembles the well-known covered wagon, judging from its trick top and rubbery mud guards. It is be- lieved that Pilky is running a muscle building course. If in doubt, watch the boys work on the handle of his flivver. George Rawcliffe — is our distinguished basketball player and makes a specialty of analysis, next to basketball. He delights in going on basketball trips and sleeping in places which imitate the great open spaces. He was elected captain of next years basketball team. Adolph Twadowski — When Bryan died he left his oratorical powers to this young Polish gentleman from the North End. He is ready to argue any subject, any time, any where and is the originator of the well-known expression — " But, Mr. Brooks. " He is also one of the owners of the Rose colored jacket, the Second Year ' s emblem of a " boner. " It is rumored he has almost earned permanent possession of it. -4( 60 % H, THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 FRESHMAN CLASS 1930 THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is Exhibit A, the class of 1930. Even as far back as last summer, the textile world had a premonition that something drastic was about to occur. All things being relative and equal, however, it is only fair to state that the world at large did not even dream of our existence. But here we are, a real live part of the student body of the New Bedford Textile School. A line from one of J. M. Barrie ' s plays sums up capably our intentions to a man — " Here I am and here I stays, ' till I gets what I came for. " To say that we are working our way up the ladder of success is no mere figure of speech, for on the very first day of entrance, we willingly gave up all our worldly possessions to the school office, in order that no man might say — " His millions made him. " Then it came to pass also that many of us lost faith in mankind. How a co-student could share his tobacco with you in the day time and then at night turn around and smite thee on the other cheek, was, at the very least, -■ { 62 )§■ 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR bewildering. Yet, we saw, experienced — and felt such things. Beards were very stylish and free matches and cigarettes were enjoyed to the utmost by the upper classmen. Then also there came freshman caps and ties, the former by Dobbs and the latter by Forhan, while the carpenter shops of the city worked overtime to supply the demand for paddles. Then the street parades, the in- itiation (lest we forget) and the " long walk " ended this particular phase of our school life. " Tempus fugited " merrily along and we began to find out that the " picker room " was not the office and that the " boll weevil fever " was perhaps something of a myth. Entwining ourselves around twills and spotting weaves soon be- came our favorite pastime. " Looms and Looming " by Mr. Acomb was our constant companion. Many of us followed the teachings of " Albumen, the Popular Mechanic, " while the Chemistry Class joined in the pursuit of the elu- sive atom. Several of our members held down positions on the basketball team in a commendable fashion and there are a goodly number of candidates who will turn out for baseball. The reports of the Ping-Pong and Domino teams have not been returned as yet so the Athletic Association is rather reticent about making statements but the public may rest assured that a very prosperous and suc- cessful season has been enjoyed. Altho ' a few of the class are now enjoying the royal and honorable sport of " shining the dinner pail, " and some have decided to pass their time in other halls of learning, yet, on the whole, there is every indication that the class will " carry on. " To our departed classmates we wish all kinds of prosperity and joy. Being the first class in the school to be organized as a Freshman unit, we are naturally rather proud of the fact and are already striving, as an organiza- tion, to do anything we can to promote activities and strengthen the common bond between ourselves and our respected and most highly esteemed upper- classmen. Plans are under way for a dance to be given in honor of our depart- ing Seniors. A most energetic committee is in charge of these plans and a successful evening is hoped for. Now that our Freshman days are drawing to a close and we step forward to our second year, it seems as tho ' we had always been a part of " Tech. " We begin to realize, somewhat, the seriousness of the problems that confront us but may we always keep that certain amount of light-heartedness and spirit which does so much to smooth the rocky pathways of life. To the Seniors, the class of 1930 wishes the best of luck and success. ' Thy ways be ways of pleasantness and all thy pathways peace.

The mere fact that the major sports, so-called have survived so long, and therein in spite of oppo- sition, proves their worthiness, for anything which will stand the time test must have a good foundation. Ancient historians have left us records of quite a variety of different sports, most of which were more or less brutal, but as civ- ilization grew, so brutality decreased until present day sports retain all the thrill and uncertainty possible, without being brutal. Most of the favorite modern sports are between teams, instead of individ- uals, and this, I think even above the crowds they attract, is one of the strongest points in their favor, for if a team hopes to be successful they must first acquire good team work, and this can only be obtained through hard work in practice, a thorough study of the particular game to be played, where the strength and weakness of each opponent lies, and by continuous working on new plays, or formations be able to take full advantage of any situation that may arise during the time the game is actually in progress. Even if the results were only measured by the actual period of life when active participation in sports is possible, it would be well worth while, as it helps to create a keen, active mind, in a strong, healthy body. At the present time team sports play quite a big part in grammar, high, prep and college programs, so that team-work or cooperation becomes al- most a habit with students who take part in them. The value of this trait cannot be over-estimated. Ask any executive what the most valuable part of his particular organization is, and usually he will stress cooperation. If student athletics teach it, as I have tried to show, then I say that they have justified their place in the present day program. F. BEARDSWORTH 4 66 }§ ••- 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR ATHLETICS AT TEXTILE ATHLETICS during the present school year of 1927-1928 have reached the highest position yet attained. The basketball season just closed has been the most satisfactory in recent years, if not, indeed, in the history of the School, and we fully expect the baseball season just opening will be fully as suc- cessful. The success of our basketball team has been due very largely to the spirit of co-operation shown by the members of the squad, the willingness to sacrifice personal glory for the best interests of the team. This could lead to but one end, the building of a team that could and would play together. This year we had no man who would keep the ball if there happened to be another player in a better position to shoot than himself. Those of us who saw the last two games played in our own gymnasium will long remember the perfect ex- hibition of team work there displayed. It is, however, to be regretted that more of us were not here to enjoy the spectacle. Our schedule this year was more nearly suited to a school in our position than most of those of other years. This is not to be understood to mean that the schedule was an easy one, for it was not, in fact it was the most difficult of anv school in this section of the State, including as it did such college teams as the Rhode Island State College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Northeastern University, all of which defeated us, the last by one point only. Lowell Textile School, playing us just after an unavoidable break in the schedule, found us out of condition and won easily. Dean Academy, the Prep School Champions, was given the worst defeat they had ever experienced on their home floor. Meeting Bridgewater Normal, Rhode Island School of Design, Bradford-Durfee Textile School, and the local Vocational School on a home and home basis resulted in two victories over each. The Massachusetts College of Pharmacy was badly defeated on our home court near the end of the season at about the time that the team was at its best. The two remaining defeats were handed us by the Rogers High School, and the United States Coast Guard Academy, the latter winning by a single point. While the spirit shown by the members of the team has undoubtedly carried it on to success, too much credit cannot be given to our popular Coach, Mr. Schofield and his able assistant Mr. McVey. They have worked hard for the development of a team in which they could take pride and one that would be a credit to the School, and to themselves. How well they succeeded is shown by the fact that the team which had no star man, or should we say, a team of which every man was a star? The result was the same regardless of how it may be written. It was a TEAM. -4 67 )j - THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 The prospects for next year are bright. While we lose five of the first string men, Rawcliffe being the only man not to graduate this year, there has been developed a number of players who are now ready to take up the burden. To fill the places of Captain George Schofield, Fran Tripp, Fred Tripp, Ted Carlson and Curt Brotherson, and do it right, will require some hustling on the part of these younger players, if they are to maintain the pace set by these men. During the present year there has also been a noticeable growth of school spirit among the students and this assures a good season at baseball. The prospective candidates look good, as most of last year ' s team are still with us, while the new class is going to furnish us with several valuable candidates. The schedule, as in basketball, is better adapted to our school than in former years. Some of the exceptionally strong teams have been dropped and other schools of our own caliber taken in their places. Athletics are, as a whole, on the best footing in several years, and it is expected that in the future teams representing the New Bedford Textile School will stand, unchallenged, at the head of their class. Coach Schofield 4 68 }£ - 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR BASKET BALL TEXTILE VERSUS M. I. T. AT CAMBRIDGE, DECEMBER 3rd, 1927 After weeks of hard training and practice, of long sessions of shooting, passing, dribbling, and pivotting the Tech squad appeared to be in fine fettle for their skirmish with M. I. T. Coach Schofield had built up a strong and deceptive system of plays with which he hoped to topple over the Engineers, but evidently it was not the will of the Gods of Basketball that mighty M. I. T. should fall at the hands of tiny Textile, though to be sure it was only in the last few minutes of play that it could be seen that the Cambridge boys were going to come out ahead. To any one who just glances at the two schools and compares them it would seem to be the height of foolhardiness for Textile with an enrollment in the neighborhood of 80 to match their skill with an institution than can draw from about 5000. Still there are other things to be cons idered besides just the size of the two schools. Most important of all is the spirit of the team and the coaching. Textile had, during its past season, the best of Coaching under -•€{ 69 }; -- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 Milt Schofield, and as for team spirit there has never been a ' more fightn ' r " team representing Tech. THE GAME Coach Schofield sent out the following men to start the game for Textile — Rawcliffe and Fran Tripp forwards, Captain Schofield center, and Fred Tripp and Brotherson guards. Referee Kelliher, " than whom there is no better, " blew his whistle and the game was on. For the first few minutes both teams played cautiously, then M. I. T. opened up and grabbed a lead that seemed quite safe until Textile spurted des- perately using criss crosses and open plays that had the Engineers bewildered for a time. As the gun sounded for the half Technology ' s big score board read M. I. T. 17— Visitors 15. The second half began and M. I. T. started like a whirlwind, due no doubt to the fighting talk that the coach had delivered to them. After some minutes of this half were gone, Carlson was sent into Textiles line-up. During the remainder of the game Textile was on the defensive most of the time and the M. I. T. team had to fight hard for each basket that they got. The game ended with the Cambridge boys on the long end of the 39 to 26 score. This game was but another instance of the " Good big team beating a good little team. " The Textile team can rest assured that there was no disgrace in the beating taken and considering that it was the first of the season when even the best of teams have not accustomed themselves to each other, the game and score both showed Textile ' s caliber. AFTER being defeated by M. I. T. and beating Bridgewater Normal, the team journeyed to Kingston to play R. I. S. C. The R. I. team proved to be no slouch. It was practically the same team that had beaten us the year before by a score of 65 to 30. This year they had their hands full in beating us 41 to 28. The team played one of its best games of the season, every man working together. It would be unfair to say that one player played better than another. In the beginning of the second half the R. I. coach put in his second team but they had not been in there two minutes when we had scored 6 points on them and the first team was immediately put into the game again. SECOND VOCATIONAL GAME N. B. T. S. 12 - V. H. S. 11 The second game with Vocational School was one of the best games of the season from an outsider ' s point of view. Tech won by the slight margin -hK 70 } 1928 THEFABRICATOR of only one point, and it was credited to Fran Tripp. Vocational had a lead of three points with only two minutes to go when Fran broke through, and with the aid of his team mates sank two baskets in a row which decided the game. Even- the Vocational rooters could not restrain themselves at the lighten- ing-like plays which ended the game, and few of the Tech rooters were able to speak the next day. Even one of the loudest talkers in the school admitted that he could not talk above a whisper, and the lab had one day when " Doc " Busby did not have to " shush " more than three times. , TEXTILE LANDS 49 TO 1 1 VICTORY New Bedford Team Swamps College of Pharmacy on Tech Floor Schofield and Francis Tripp were high scorers, scoring 15 and 14 points respectively, while Bolton and Isenstein played well for the Pharmacy. Starting of first quarter the Boston team looked as if they would give the Textile team plenty of action, as the local boys were held to a score of 9 to 5. Starting of the second quarter things began to look better for the local boys; Textile began to use their cross plays which took the Pharmacy by sur- prise. Due to the good work of Captain Schofield and his forward line Raw- cliffe and Francis Tripp, the score at the end of the half was increased 20 points leaving the score 29 to 7. The third quarter the Pharmacy failed to make, or score a single point. The Textile boys scored 13 more points bringing the score 42 to 7. Captain Schofield proved himself to be one of the best players ever entered or played on any team in the history of the school. Fred Tripp and Carlson played well at guard. At the beginning of the fourth quarter Coach Milt Schofield of the Tex- tile, injected his entire second team in place of the Varsity in the final period. Winsper was the high scorer of the second team, counting 2 points with Karl adding 1 foul basket. The final score, 49 to 11. TEXTILE 21 - U. S. COAST GUARD ACADEMY 22 On January 14 the " Sons of Tech " packed their autos and left for New London to do battle with the strong Mid-shipmen five. The previous season they had lost a close game to the " Mid-shipmen " by a two point margin, so Tech was in a determined state of mind to bring home the bacon if it was possible. -h$ 71 fe°- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 As in the case of our trip the previous year, we were given a rousing re- ception by the Midshipmen and were treated royally during our entire visit. Sundown found the crowd swarming around the entrance of the Armory eager to obtain a seat to watch the fray which was soon to start. With the large hall filled to capacity and the Cadet band playing a lively march, the Red and Gray of " Tech " came out to warm up. Soon the Cadets, led by their " Bruin " mascot and inspired by their band which by this time was pouring forth volumes of music, took to the floor for a final warming up. Tweet! Tweet! Tech had started to do battle with the Cadets. The New Bedford boys soon had t en points before the Cadets called for time out. By clever work on the part of Schofield and Francis Tripp the Tech team added three more points before the half ended and the Cadets managed to get six points. The half ended, Textile 13, Cadets 6. The final half found the Cadets playing a fine brand of basketball and the two teams staged some of the best playing that was ever witnessed in the New London Armory. With Tech leading 21 to 20 with a half minute to play and the hall in a deafening roar, Maloney who was playing left forward on the Cadets, dropped in a seemingly impossible shot from away out in one corner of the court which put the Cadets in the lead 22 to 21. By a wonderful piece of floor work Tech worked the ball down the floor and were ready to score another basket when the gun boomed — Textile was defeated by one point. A dance followed the game and the Cadet band furnished music. We were well treated during our stay at the Academy and as Tech started home, the Midshipmen gathered and gave us three rousing cheers. DEAN ACADEMY Perhaps one of the best games " Tech " turned in this season was the decisive victory over the crack Dean Academy quintet at Franklin, January 21. Capt. Schofield, sprained his ankle a minute before the opening whistle and threw a scare into the rest of the team, but, acting like a Spartan he entered the fray and played a whale of a game. This game was a wonderful ex- hibition of team- work on Textile ' s part; Schofield, the Tripps and Rawcliffe evenly dividing the scoring honors and " Stretch " Carlson consistently inter- cepting passes and blocking shots which soon discouraged the Dean players. At half-time " Tech " led by 22-11 but not satisfied with this they piled up their lead till, at the final whistle, the score read 34-19, — the worst defeat a Dean Academy quintet had ever received on their home court. Also " Tech ' s " five " Iron Men " had gone another game without a substitution. No little credit is due Textile for winning this game, as Dean, winning the Massachusetts State Prep School championship this season, won the honor of competing in the annual Glen Falls tournament. The only other game Dean lost this year was by one point to Tufts Freshmen at Medford. -Hgf 72 JBnt- 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR BASKETBALL SIDELIGHTS Half the fun of playing Basketball is making the various trips, most of the happenings are funny and darned few are sad. You would be surprised if you knew how short a time it takes to go anywhere if you have three or four brother players with you to talk and pass away the time. It was during these trips that the following incidents were observed and they are here printed to pass on to the school. A Foul Shot On the New London trip, some of the squad were climbing the hill up to the old fort that rumour has it was captured by the British under Benedict Arnold in the Revolutionary War. At the foot of this hill is the garage that belongs to the Academy. One of the men spoke up and told one of his fellow players that the automobile in which Arnold rode up to the fort was in the garage. The fellow he spoke to ran down the hill looked into the garage and said " They all seem to be in pretty good condition here " !!!! PATHETIC FIGURES Fran Tripp between the halves at the U. S. C. G. A. game. Schofield at Lowell with keen babies at the dance and Scup in need of a shave with no barber shop within six miles. Rawcliffe and Carlson after the Lowell game going to bed into rooms that had no windows with the night at about zero, (the holes were there but no glass) . Dan Sullivan dancing with that big babe at New London. Winsper taking a girl home at Lowell and then finding out how far he had to walk. THINGS WHICH THE SQUAD WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN Radway wrestling with an Egyptian Mummy as big as himself. Fred Tripp being kicked out of a home game. Brotherson hiding behind a car door rather than having his picture taken. Coach Schofield munching on peanuts and telling us how bad they are for the wind. And thereby hangs a tale . Coach Schofield owed Carlson twenty cents and while going through Providence on the way to R. I. State, it was suggested that we stop and buy something. The coach was all for it and further agreed to buy something that Carlson liked for the twenty cents. He did — he bought a pound of nuts and told Carlson that half were his but that he couldn ' t have any as they were bad for his wind. The debt was settled and they almost had to use a straight jacket on Carlson. Talk about Ponzi! ! ! 73 }§ - THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 Get Adams to tell you what two hard babies said to each other as he came sliding across the floor on his ear towards them in the first Vocational game. It is rumoured that Horse Haggerty is going to lose his job due to a new phenom that has burst into being at the Textile School. No less than our Eddie Wareing. Boxing and Basketball, " Rajah Karl. " This season Rajah was the only one on the squad to mix the aforementioned two on the basketball court. Just once however so he will be forgiven this time. Appreciation The squad wishes to make known ' here that they think that they have the best Athletic Director and the best Coach of any school, anywhere. Mr. Busby has proved himself to be one of the most understanding of men when it comes to controlling a bunch of fellows and his just treatment and willingness to meet them a little more than half way is deeply appreciated by the team. Coach Schofield has been able to get more out of the boys that they realized perhaps due to the fact that he himself is a real sport in every sense of the word and to the fact that his own squareness in dealing with the boys made them play the game in a sporting manner and give everything they had for him. As a result Tech has turned in one of the most successful seasons that the school has had for a long time. One of the most rabid Textile fans, strange as it may seem, was not a student but that didn ' t prevent him from going on nearly every trip. All the squad, at least, knows that we mean " Sam " McVey. The way Sam tore around in that car of his to get to the games on time caused much speculation among the boys as to whether we would next see the doughty Sam at the game or wrapped around some telegraph pole. We surely appreciate Sam ' s work in helping the Coach in the practice sessions and for working as one of our officials in nearly every game. TECH ' S BASKETBALL SCHEDULE 1927-8 December 3, 1927 M.

Once again the class supplied a captain for a school team, this time in the person of Edmond Waring . " Ed " has been doing mound duty for the school for the past three seasons. Nor is " Ed " the only representative of the class on the team. " Curt " Brotherson scoops up all the fast ones at short stop besides taking his turn at the slab regu- larly. All indications point to a successful season in baseball, as last year ' s varsity squad is practically intact. Having less than a hundred students, and playing teams of collegiate rank, we cannot help but feel a bit egotistic at " Tech " in the field of sports. However, let it be said at this time that this is largely due to the influence and enthusiasm instilled in us by our Director of Athletics, Fred E. Busby. There is nothing he is unwilling to do for us in the line of athletics. Newspaper Reprint TEXTILE BALL PLAYERS READY TO GET GOING GOOD DIAMOND PROSPECTS OUT Tech Should Have Good Season Baseball practice will start at Textile within a week or so when Coach Milt Schofield will call out the candidates for the batteries to work out in the gym. Plenty of material is on hand and from all evidence Tech should have a fairly good team. Although baseball is not the big sport as is basketball the Millmen usually turn out a fairly good team. For pitchers the Tech nine can depend on two of last year ' s squad and a couple of Freshmen. Wareing and Fawcett are both veterans and Karl a fresh- -4 75 - THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 man was a good performer, while at New Bedford high. There are plenty of aspirants for the receiving end of the battery with Lincoln, Sullivan, Soler, and Twardowski on hand. The infield is all veterans with Adams at first, Twardowski, if not catching at second, Curt Brotherson at short, and Drozek at third. The garden is com- plete except for one berth, left field that Chick Wareing who graduated held down. The other two are certain to fall to the two men who held them last year Frank Tripp and Turgeon. Textile has written finis to a very satisfactory basketball season and chief among the accomplishments of the year has been the double defeat of Durfee Textile, the local boys most bitter rivals. The Mill Men also have a clear title to the City championship as they have defeated Vocational twice, Holy Family, and swamped the high school boys in a practice game. The Tech quintet dropped six games out of 17 played, and considering that the games dropped were to large colleges with the exception of two their record is im- pressive. Fran Tripp was the high scoring ace of Textile with his 160 points with an average of 9.41 points per game. Ciose behind Tripp came Schofield and Rawcliffe who were both well over the century mark in their scoring.

With the 24th annual convention and long list of speakers and enter- tainers the Phi Psi brothers renewed many old acquaintances. The annual dance is, of course, long since forgotten by Turner, Winsper and Brotherson but will be remembered for a long time by the other surviving brothers and lady friends. In the fall of ' 27 many pumps of the hand and slaps on the back took place and a general greeting was given to Brother Holmes upon his return to our fold for another year. The " fall " banquet for our prospective brothers will not be forgotten soon, especially the latter part of the evening in Lincoln Park. Everybody seemed happy but Macia. Pope Beach seemed a popular place on initiation night when thirty hooded brothers got lost in the darkness of the night. The •4 78 )§h- 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR permanent residents were worried as they thought they had been invaded by the Ku Klux. Thanks to Sullivan that night, Paine may also need reminding of the incident. Fawcett ' s feet held out splendidly, considering his two hundred pound body. Phi Psi ' s social activities took a vacation from that night until the Christ- mas party. A " quiet " evening was spent by the boys, listening to " The Shoot- ing of Dan McGrew, " which was put over so splendidly by Brothers Dow, Holmes. Fawcett, Paine, Brooks and last but not least, Carlson. ' Ted " got " shot " that night. By the way, this was " Rad ' s " birthday and the last of the boys seen that night were Dan Sullivan and Turner decorating the Christmas tree on High St. Greg added a sign to his collection. The mid-year exams passed without any loss of lives or brothers. The February dance was run off. Phi Psi musical talent was in evidence that night as proved by the Phi Psi orchestra under no less a guidance than Brother J. Dow from Rhode Island. Fawcett and Carlson do play mean instruments and we all have had jazzitis since that night. The Phi Psi Fraternity as well as helping furnished the students with social activities tends to improve their scholastic standing as proven by the number of honor students now in the fraternity. ■ { 79 } THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 M DELTA KAPPA PHI FRATERNITY ONDAY, September 12th, 1927. all Delta Kappa Phi men were on hand renewing acquaintances after the summer vacation. After completing the usual routine of registration, the Fraternity members discussed what they had been doing during the summer and the rest of the day was spent in following pleasure ' s bent. With school opened and the routine learned, thoughts turned to " Open Night " which was held September 21st, at the New Bedford Hotel. The great event of initiation started and the initiates certainly wished that the " candy mint with the hole " had never been invented. Skull caps of purple and white and large purple boy ties made the candidates outstanding attractions both to the people passing the school and to those in the center when the " Big Parade " was held. The evening was a great success. However, the actual initiation was held in October and the event will not be forgotten soon by some of the candidates. Some of them could qualify for any cross country race or marathon walking race. A certain something which taught the candidates to dance and sent the shivers up and down their legs will long be remembered in connection with this evening which was enjoyed by the -4 80 K - 19 2 8 THE FABRICATOR Fraternity members and some of the Alumni. The social season, having been opened by the Initiation, was carried for- ward in great style with the " Christmas Hop " held at the hotel a few days be- fore the holiday vacation. Maybe that night won ' t be remembered! Every Delta Kappa Phi man thoroughly enjoyed himself -- AND HOW! ! After the Christmas vacation was over and the members were back to school, wonderful tales were heard about New Year ' s parties and vacation times. New socks, ties, cigarette lighters, etc. were sported about the school. The next event on the Delta Kappa Phi ' s social calender was the Collegiate Hop at Duff ' s Small Hall. Dimmed lights, flowing gowns and dancers gliding over the floor were seen. It surely was a successful night for D. K. After mid-year exams were over, thoughts turned to new social times, both of the school and outside the school. Basketball was the chief interest, Turgeon, Ed Wareing and Drozek. Francis Tripp lead the scoring, by the way. Two new members were taken in this term and made a total membership of twenty-one. Spring brought baseball and Fran Tripp, Ed Wareing, Drozek and Othote represented the Fraternity on the diamond. The Annual Convention is the event which is looked forward to all the year. It is to be held at Tabitha Inn on April 21st. A wonderful time greeting other Fraternity brothers and Alumni is expected and all Delta Kappa Phi men are looking forward to the event with marked interest. Then comes the final event of the year, the Annual Farewell Party, given to the graduating members. This will be held in May, just before leaving for the summer vacation. The Fraternity loses seven members by graduation this year. Looking backwards is to gaze upon a most enjoyable year spent together, a year in which friendships were formed that go to make a Fraternity all that it should mean. 81 ]►- THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 SIGMA PHI TAU FRATERNITY THE Beta Chapter of Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity was not very active in school affairs this past year. Textile conditions have been so depressed these past months that few Jewish students have entered this school of learning. But as there was an alumni chapter in New Bedford, Beta Chapter was able to keep up the Sigma Phi Tau spirit and there were quite a few successful parties held. The annual dance with Gamma Chapter of the Bradford Durfee Textile School of Fall River was held March 3rd. This proved to be a great social success. Favors which certainly will be cherished, were given to the girls who attended the dance. The convention was held this year the week end of March 30th, 31st, and April 1st. Judging by the plans outlined by Alpha Chapter of the Phil- adelphia School, there are enough events to keep the boys busy up until the moment of leaving. °4 82 } ■■- THE F ABRIC AT( JR 19 2 8 NAME DELIGHT APPEARANCE FAVORITE SAYING Adelsohn Critisizing Semetic We ' d like to know Biswas Acting Dignified Yes?

" The waddling mascot of the school, that eighth wonder of the world, the wonder bird of the age, the Textile Goose has disappeared, that gentle bird who never emitted a loud " Honk " while in captivity, the well-known figure that promenaded on Tech ' s campus whenever taking a walk for her health. It was only last evening when she waddled to her corner in the weighing room to rest after a hard day ' s work and now she is gone, gone, leaving behind sorrowing students who will leave no stone unturned, no hay loft over-looked, behind or in which she may have hidden. The best detectives are put on the case but even they can find no clue, not even a feather. A week passes and before the students eyes always appears the black beady eyes of their favorite goose. Nothing has been accomplished and the detectives have given up the case as one that cannot be solved and so list the goose, the favorite goose, with the missing hens that have never been found. The students are in an uproar and scour the country for miles around and say that she must be found, " be she alive or be she dead. " It is just a week to a day when the students smell an odor that can be but just one thing, that of roasted goose. A rush is made upon the house from which the odor comes and there they find her on her back in a large white platter, with neck tucked under her wing and feet lifted toward the ceiling and her skin colored a delicate brown. The Textile students stop and wait with bowed heads and tears in their eyes while the Textile Quartet sing that song of mourning, " Go Tell Aunt Rhody the Old Gray Goose is Dead. " They realize so well that they shall look no more into those dark eyes from which real goose tears fell when she learned she could not have " goofer feathers. " When the song is ended there is a scraping of chairs the disappearance of the Textile Goose is no longer a mystery, for, having been captured and fattened by one of the students, she lies in state in the place of honor at the Senior Class banquet, never to be forgotten, especially by those who have indigestion! -» { 86 JJk- v THE FABRICATOR 19 2 8 HEARD IN THE LAB Sullivan: " I was out with a good girl last night.

" She wanted to stop her husband from smoking so she answered one of those advertisements, which, for the price of three dollars, ($3.) guaran- teed, by the simple insertion of a sub- stance in his coffee, that he would stop smoking. After sending her money, she received a bottle with the instructions that one teaspoonful of contents would stop any man from smoking. The bottle was labelled " Prussic Acid. " The Wild and Wooly West Two men met in a speak-easy and, getting confidential, one asked the other what his name was.

Tank, the left forward of the Drown team, seized the puck and hurled it thru ' the air to a waiting outside forward. However, Jenks of our team, kicked the ball out of dan- ger and slid to first base, making it two downs and four yards to go! With a wild whoop, a brawny lad grabbed the volley ball and tucked it into his plus fours. He charged over the eighth hole and swam past the three mile limit. He silently crawled by the unseeing Drown team and galloped down the home stretch, shook off tacklers and outfielders like crumbs, scored a basket and won the game for dear old Alma Mater. Great was the excitement when the umpire took our hero ' s hand and raised it on high in token of victory. It was a seven round decision ! There were great doings that night at Smith Hall and all Purchase Street rang with the festivities.
