" PLEASE, THEN, ACCEPT THIS AS A SUPPLEMENT TO THOSE PLEASANT MEMORIES AND DO NOT BE TOO SEVERELY CRITICAL. -THE STAFF MR. WILLIAM SMITH, Principal T HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL HE New Bedford Textile School was established and incorporated in 1895. It was opened for classes in 1899. From a very small school, housing only one department, the school grew to its present size, housing four departments ; namely, the General Cotton Manuiactur- ing Course, the Chemistry and Dyeing Course, the Knitting Course and the Me- chanical Course. Three new buildings were added to the school and today, it stands recognized as one of the finest and best equipped Textile schools in the world. It ' s graduates are the most prominent men in the industry to-day, and their ha Bedford Textile School. success has been due largely to the excellent training they received at the New Alma Mater Tune— " Madelon " Oh, Alma Mater, you ' re the only one, Oh, dear old " Tech, " for you we ' ll carry on. ' Neath your portals shed we joy and tear And for you we give one cheer, — Rah ! Rah ! Oh, Alma Mater, you will find us true, Oh, dear old " Tech, " we ' ll be true to you. ' Neath your banner of maroon and gray We will fight to the end of the day, — Rah ! Rah ULT j j THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 (10) 1929 THE FABRICATOR CHEMISTRY, DYEING, AND FINISHING DEPARTMENT IT was here that we found that our supposedly profound knowledge of chemistry, acquired while at high school, was but a mere scratching of the surface. We were soon introduced to the intricacies of organic and to the delights of qualitative and quantitative analysis. Here, too, we found that by immersing socks ( obtained by methods not ap- proved by the father of our country) in colored solutions, very pleasing tones were obtained which did much to enhance the appearance of the " Tech " man in the feminine eye. The department has two laboratories splendidly equipped for experimental and analytical chemistry. The finishing apparatus is of the most modern type, tending to give the student the very best training in that field. The department is headed by Mr. Busby very ably assisted by Messrs. Brooks, Weymouth, and Broadfoot. (U) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 (12) 1929 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 cloth structures are studied in detail. The Weave room affords the student opportunities for practical and theoretical knowledge of advanced power weaving of every description, including the pre- paration 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 tbe students on plain, box, dobby, leno and jacquard machines, thereby enabling them- selves to obtain a complete education in weaving and loom construction. Co- ordinating with the design room many elaborate patterns have been woven. It is neither here nor there but we might mention that it was here that we first discovered from whence cometh those quaint sayings such as " This is a carm " , " This another carm " and " One orp ; two down. " The staff of instructors in this department is Mr. Holt, Mr. Acomb, Mr. Moore, and Mr. Beardsworth. (13) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 (14) 1929 THE FABRICATOR T THE COTTON YARN PREPARATION DEPT. HERE is no question but what the whole cotton manufacturing industry is dependent upon good and suitable yarns. With this fact in view this department has been developed to such a degree that it gives the student the very soundest of training in that field. The department head Mr. Holden and his assistant Mr. Woolam spare no pains to give the students a very thorough understanding of Picking, Carding and Drawing technicalities. An excellently equipped testing room adds much to the importance of this department. With the up to the minute machinery and able instructors in this department the student is assured of a complete knowledge of practical and theoretical Carding and Spinning of Cotton yarn, thereby enabling him to carry out into the industry new and modern ideas. (15) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 (16) 1929 THE FABRICATOR MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT ALTHOUGH the primary function of this department is to acquaint the student with those things purely mechanical, it plays the role of " Little Miss Fixit " to no small degree. It is the private opinion of some few that the Weaving and C. Y. P. departments would have considerable difficulty in functioning properly were it not for the fact that the machine shop has that peculiar yet fascinating power of rejuvenating worn out and broken parts of looms, pickers, cards, etc. This department has two excellent drafting rooms, a splendidly equipped machine shop, an electrical laboratory, and a steam laboratory. The head of the department, Mr. Crompton. and his assistants, Mr. Walton and Mr. Bayreuther, have shown that they are only too capable at guiding the students in that phase of the work they teach. (17) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 KNITTING DEPARTMENT THE knitting department is the one place in the school that one never finds exactly the same as he saw it a week previously. This little conjuring act is due to Mr. Manning ' s continual demand for a change of scenery. Mr. Manning ' s amazing persuasive powers have also enabled this department to get the newest and most up to date machinery. Whenever a new knitting machine is introduced into the industry, Mr. Manning ' s nimble brain has already formulated plans for acquiring it " gratis free for nothing. " But that is not an end to Mr. Manning ' s versatility. He teaches textile testing and has developed that course to a marked degree. We might also add that he coached one of our most successful basketball teams. (18) 1929 THE FABRICATOR HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS w E came ; we saw ; we conquered. Such in a few words is the history of the Senior Class. September 1926 saw us as confident young High School graduates with a well defined opinion of our own importance. We were soon sent toppling from our pedestal when we discovered how ignorant we were of the new language used at " Tech " . Such terms as " ouse " , " ccom, " and " sooms " were a complete mystery to us and to our further con- sternation we were informed that we were expected to be young men " as can write and spell correctly. " In the " Lab " we also had our troubles. It was some weeks before one of the upper-classmen informed us that Mr. Brooks was not the janitor. We blushed with shame at our own inability when Levovsky and " Prof. " Brickley started to tell us stories. What a pair of Spanish Athletes ! ! Learning to dye was a treat. " Prof. " Brickley gave us a detailed description of how to mount — dye samples. Skull caps ; bow ties ; the call of the fraternities. Now we were real " Tech " men. Athletics — Our George Rawcliffe kept us on the honor list by beating out several veterans for a regular berth on the Basketball Team. The baseball team saw us better represented with Adams, Drozek, Turgeon, and Twardowski land- ing regular berths. Sophomores ! September 1927. Back at " Tech. " What a grand time meeting old friends ! ! In a few days we were knocking at the same old door waiting for that " Coom " to usher us into that sacred sanctuary. " What ' s the trouble? " " Spinal meningitis. " " Excused. " The general boys attacked their pickers and slubbers with such vim that even old " Joe " Woolam was seen to smile with approval. In the " Lab " one could only hear " Hey, what d ' ju get for normality of HC1 ? " Athletics again. Adams and Winsper won their letters along with Rawcliffe in Basketball. In baseball we again supplied one half of the team. (19) THE FABRICATOR 1929 Socials; What a mean bunch of " hoofers " we turned out to be!! At last! Seniors!! Dignified? Conservative? We ' ll say. The boys all thought it a ripe time for their manly qualities to assert them- selves and their first steps to that end was to raise slight downs upon their upper lips. Preparations for Commencement. Class Elections. George Rawcliffe, President, James Adams, Vice President, James Pilkington, Secretary and Cliff. Pierce, our nearest approach to a Scotchman, Treasurer. Studies were of minor importance now. Socials and Athletics interested us only. Our dance was a staggering success. A goodly number were seen to stagger. Sam Lassow appeared at school next day with a discolored optic. He explained that phenomenon by saying something flew up and hit him in the eye. We are inclined to believe that that " something " was in the shape of a fist. George Rawcliffe captained the basketball team with Adams, Winsper and Sullivan as regulars. In Baseball we will again be represented by Adams, Drozek, Sullivan, Turgeon and Twardowski. Our championship Soccer Team had Pilkington, Drozek, Peitavino and Rawcliffe as regulars. Thus have our three years flown. Oh ! that the ensuing years bring us such happiness as we leave behind. Classmates, the world beckons and we must go. We will have our dark moments, our fits of despondency, our moments of despair but let us not forget our motto : " Excelsior " or " Upward and Onward. " (20) je niH% THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 3n il?m0rimn GEORGE PALMER " Requiescat in Pace. " (22) THE FABRICATOR 1929 JAMES H. ADAMS Vice President General Phi Psi TlMMIE is the " big mill man " of our class! With the influences at his disposal he is bound to win out in his career in the Textile World. But this young man ' s talent does not stop at his ability in his work. Ask anyone who saw him do his stuff on a certain ni ght which will linger for many a moon in our memory and the} ' will agree with you that he could gain admission into any Co-ed institution — and how ! The public sure did think that " Tech " had a co-ed whose enchantments would rival those of Greta Garbo. If you ever pass by the Union alleys and hear the sound of flying pins you will know that Jimmie has made another strike. The pin boys never rush to accommodate him for nobody likes work. He makes it seem so easy one might be tempted to think that they set the pins up for him. Jimmie has excelled in baseball, basketball and soccer. He filled his positions in so capable a manner that his services will be missed when next season rolls round. In all around ability Jimmie ranks with the leaders and we can safely say that his success is assured in whatever branch of industry he selects. (23) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 CLIFFORD BROOKES Business Manager Fabricator Designing Phi Psi blR Oracle — the foremost scintillant of the designing class is here pictured for your approval. This young Proteus of the textile world is an ever ardent lover (of his studies.) Little is known of his impervious genius, but should any information be desired, we would suggest Mr. Sullivan, he and Mr. Brookes have something in common (in Fairhaven.) She is his favorite pronoun, and his knowledge along this line is unlimited (but-try and extract it.) Because of his dignified personality, one is forestalled in any attempt to gather even a few grains of knowledge ; his unmistaken attitude of " Father is right " and " Mother knows best " compels one to retire and leave him, the undefeated champion in this field. Considering this gentleman seriously, we know that his integrity and knack of applying himself diligently to the task set before him will win for him the honor of being an outstanding figure in the textile world. To you Clifford Brookes we wish prosperity and fame in your future career. (24) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR V ' - ' - • gr .V : MIECZYSLAW P. DROZEK General Course Delta Kappa Phi A promising youth is " Pete. " He ' ll promise most anything " . Although young in years " Pete " is far from being a shy unassuming person due to the fact that some few weeks ago " Pete " discovered that riding in a car with one arm placed (protectively?) around a young lady ' s shoulders is an ex- tremely delightful procedure. Consequently " Pete " is seriously considering buying a car. However, he does not devote all his time to the weaker sex as he was the mainstay of our soccer team and a veritable " Rock of Gibraltar " when playing the " hot corner " on the baseball team. " Pete " has also distinguished himself in scholastic circles by carrying away a scholarship. It is inevitable but that a young man of his caliber succeed. We wish you luck, " Pete " ! (25) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 General Course EDWARD FARROW " Absence makes the heart prow fonder " Phi Psi ' ED ' is the only student in the history of the school known to have finished his course in one year. That is, " Ed " was absent three days to every one present. He certainly must have believed in that caption written above. Possessing in his person all that allures the taste and charms the eye, it was he who first directed the attention of the feminine pulchritude towards " Tech " . A review of his " affaires du coeur " finds them to be as numerous and as varied as those of King Solomon. He has set down many rules for the procedure of modern Don Juan ' s, foremost of which is " Find ' em, fool ' em, and — and — and forsake ' em " . It was he who first let us understand that water was made to wash with and not to drink and has often-times staged exhibitions showing the nature and quantity of beverages fit to be consumed by the particular young man. Casting levity aside we are sure that " Ed ' s " winning personality will lead him to success in his chosen field. (26) 1929 THE FABRICATOR JOHN LADINO New Bedford High School Chemistry Advertising Manager Fabricator HAVE you ever seen an old fashioned boy at " Tech, " well, let me introduce a quiet industrious member of the chemistry quartette. Yes — he ' s our advertising manager and I am sure the " Old Gold " cigarette people would find that John would be an asset to them. I forget to say he is also qualified as a caretaker, so Twardy says. It appears John, being of a thoughtful nature, " takescare " of Twardy ' s apparatus, lest the sneaky 2nd year chemistry class relieve Twardy of his beakers, graduates, etc. (J. A. excluded). In all seriousness we are sure Mr. Broadfoot will miss John ' s assistance in making those delicate dye trials. Did you ever hear Ladino burst forth with " It ' s all a joke now fellows. You ' ll realize your mistake later. " When John starts rubbing elbows with the Duponts, I think he will lavishly bequest a trifle of his surplus currency for the construction and maintenance of a cafeteria at " Tech " . It appears Ladino is not quite satisfied with the lunch facilities offered in Room 10. (27) THE FABRICATOR 1929 ADOLPHE TWARDOWSKI Editor-in-Chief, Fabricator Chemistry " Cacoethes Loquendi " LET us introduce to you the Senior Class ' most accomplished exponent of the forensic act. " Twardy " , as he is more affectionately known by his classmates, has success- fully proven to us during the last three years that if a man but use his gray matter and tongue properly he can very easily cope with any situation, no matter how intricate or at what great odds. We may add that his most common application of his formula is in getting out of work. For references, see Mr. Brooks. It is his less serious nature however, which attracts to him hosts of friends. He appreciates nothing much better than listening to a good joke and echoing his approval with that hearty contagious laugh that is so characteristic of him. Perhaps this accounts for the unparalleled harmony when he and Farrow get together either in the " Lab " or some other secluded, yet accessible, rendezvous. Incidentally, " Twardy " is no slouch at telling stories himself. Let us not be led astray into believing Twardowski is only an " intellectual grind " , either, for the Maroon and Gray has to look back years in her baseball records to find a guard of the keystone sack to compare with him. It was upon the realization, and appreciation of this young man ' s executive and literary ability by the Senior Class that they elected him to the highly-honored office of Editor-in-Chief of this year-book. Enrolled in the Chemistry course but showing great versatility along other lines, we feel that it is only a matter of time before he ' ll be in some highly esteemed position bringing more honors upon old " Tech " . (28) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR SAMUEL LASSOW New Bedford High School Designing " Was it a vision, or a waking dream Fled is that music : — Do I wake or sleep ? " -Keats VvE have had the pleasure, classmates, to he associated, while at " Tech " , with that famous Sam Lassow, musician extraordinary, famed pugilist, well-known wit, and claimant to the honor of having had raised one of the finest and best groomed lip ornaments ever seen on the " Tech " campus. Sam is recognized at the school as a " real sport " but that by no means is an indication that he is characterized as such only within the conf ines of the campus. In a questionnaire recently conducted by the Staff it was found that 94% of the girls residing on South Water Street voted Sam a " true sport " and a " reckless spender. " Incidentally, let it be said at this time that Sam also won the admiration and affection of many members of the faculty ; Mr. Walton being known to have expressed his intense feelings upon more than one occasion. With such a start can Sam ' s ultimate success be anything but a matter of time ? A long time ! ! (29) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 GREGORY MEAGHER Knitting Course Phi Psi 1 HREE years ago there came from the wilds of Milton, a boy looking for new worlds to conquer. Greg, has now decided that he will no longer waste his vast amount of vim and pep in trying to tame the town, and has turned into a quiet studious chap. He is one of the immortal three ( no names need to be mentioned as to who the} " are I . We have recently learned that he has finally decided to buy that box of chocolates for a certain party. " Greg " , we all hope that when you step out into the cruel world, and become a leading industrial figure that you will not forget your friends who wish you the verv best of luck. (30) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR FRANK PAKULA General Course Phi Psi H ERE we have the " baby ' of the class, but what he lacks in years he makes up for in worldly experience ! Frank rivals the best of them and sure makes his classmates hustle to keep their laurels. Frank is sure to attain success as a famous C. Y. P. man although he dabbles in the grocery business to show his versatility. We wonder in which he takes the greatest pleasure — dissecting a member of the bovine species or assembling a comber. Some may boast of their " Gifts from the Gods " , but this young man can be classed as a first class plugger. For determination, tenacity, and perseverance Frank is hard to beat. With his obliging and agreeable manner Frank has made a host of friends. There will be a place for Frank in the Textile Field and with it goes the best wishes of the class ! (31) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 CLIFTON PIERCE Treasurer Senior Class Joke Editor. Fabricator General Phi Psi ' Seeker of Truth ' A veritable " seeker of truth " is " Clif " , with his persistent questioning as to the ways and wherefors of everything that comes to his attention. He has the Faculty in constant trepidation lest they lie unable to satisfy his overwhelming desire for knowledge. He has a passion for polysyllables which often drives his classmates to desperation because of their inability to comprehend his statements. " Clif " has distinguished himself scholastieally having annexed a scholarship (which he claims came in the nick of time to replenish his already sadly depleted purse.) In as much as " Clif " is the daddy of us all and has no failings other than smoking abominable cigars, the Senior Class with its characteristic reckless abandon appointed him as guardian over their funds. (32) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR AMERICO PEITAVINO ' Pie? Textile Prep. General Jr IET " , our illustrious soccer player is as patriotic as his name. Nothing much was heard from him during the first three years of his sojourn here but his " coming out " party was a decided success. In his senior year " Piet " started set- ting the pace in school activities. Besides engaging in soccer, baseball, ping pong, push ball and serving as captain of the cross-country team he was adjudged the handsomest man in the Cotton Department, and selected by the Radclirfe Seniors as the best dancer in the school. The class is assured that " Piet " will prove a great asset to the Milan Silk Corp. after graduation and some day may rule the Silk Industry. Our first im- pression was that he would be a railroad yard boss but he is surely destined for a better fate after spending several years here under the expert tutelage of the " Tech " Facultv. (33) THE FABRICATOR 1929 JAMES PILKINGTON Art Editor, Fabricator Chemistry Secretary Senior Class Delta Kappa Phi 1 HREE years ago " Pilky " arrived from the wilds of Cove Road. It was not long before he demonstrated to us his versatility. He is known most famously as the master of the iron horse whose stubborn will he has long since learned to curb. Every morning at 8 o ' clock with clock-like regularity we can always see him butting and ramming his way up to the curb. At that hour he is invaribly engulfed in a deluge of soccer saturated newspapers and periodicals. With nightfall the iron horse becomes transformed into the " Tech taxi " which every night, without fail, is loaded with passengers. With everything on board " Pilky " disappears in a veil of smoke. In his most recent role we behold " Pilky " newly initiated into the intricacies of hunting the elusive duck and hare. In fact due to his enterprising nature, he was responsible for the organization of the Tech Rod and Gun Club (two members) of which he was elected by a majority of one over one-half, to the presidency and every other office of importance. One day there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth. " Pilky " was sorely vexed to find that his Nimrods paraphernalia ; namely, his boots, had been tampered with, giving rise to the as yet unsolved mystery, " Who put the starch in " Pilky ' s " boots ? To summarize, now that the curtain is slowly descending on " Pilky ' s " character sketch with the approaching of graduation, listen to this secret. " Pilky " is in reality a chemist peerless and unparalleled. He aspires to do notable things, I hear, in that land across the sea, (34) 1929 THE FABRICATOR GEORGE RAWCLIFFE President Senior Class Chemistry Ass ' t Advertising Manager Fabricator PALMAN Qui Meruit ferat ' — Let him who has won it bear the palm. George ' s short stay at " Tech " had brought him as many laurels as one could well wish for. His splendid ability as a leader has won for him the presidency of the Senior Class and the captaincy of our Basketball Team. His splendid work as custodian of the goal was a big factor in helping our soccer team to finish the season undefeated. He has had his share of honors where studies are concerned also. As is to be expected George has won his way into the hearts of the ladies as well and his " affaires " are only too numerous. The latest reports state that " Gum Trag Annie " has been relegated to the " has beens " and his latest acquisition is " The Austrian " . Every Saturday night he is at the Grange, proving to the girls that there is no place like " Tech " to go for your young men. George tells us that he has no doubt but that he will succeed. He says he will be d — m particular about the kind of wheelbarrow he chooses. (35) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 DANIEL SULLIVAN General Course Phi Psi L AN ' is the boy from Ash Street. Known to all the boys in school as happy- go-lucky " Dan " , and also president of the " Textile Ramblers " . Most of his rambles occur between 9:30 after basketball and before lights go out on Brownell Street. He is a great student of figures, and may often be found at the waiting station " studying ' em " as he calls it. In weaving he can sing songs and hide shuttles with the best of them. YVe are inclined to believe he is responsible for Mr. Acomb ' s additional gray hairs. All joking aside " Dan " has proven himself to be one of the best jacquard and color students in the class. In basketball he is the most erratic player on the team, which makes him a man to be feared. Along with his basketball he also excels on the diamond. " Dan " is a hard worker and ready to help, and we feel sure he ' ll make a success. Best of luck, " Dan " ! (36) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR OSWALD P. TURNER " Lightnin " Chemistry HOLD on folks ! Don ' t rush, we have with us this evening one " Lightnin " Turner, the proud owner of the only true resemblance of Emerson Hough ' s " Covered Wagon " . Oswald calls the latter his car but allowances are made for he is subjected to attacks periodically. After taking part in life ' s struggle and splashing in indigo and the likes, for a year " Lightnin " at last decided that the ivy-clad halls of " Tech " were THE place of securing a much needed rest, and during waking moments to further his knowledge of " Coulor " and Textiles in the endeavor to secure his sheepskin. Oswald did not take a great part in Athletics because all his spare moments were taken up with posing for the Arrow Collar Company and doubling for the Wooden Horse in " The Fall of Troy " . Despite these handicaps which would have tested the backbone of a stronger man, Oswald gritted his teeth and through constant practice both here in school and at home landed a regular berth on both the Debating and Chess teams. Since " Lightnin ' s " advent with these teams neither aggregation has lost a match. We do not know what plans Oswald has for the future but we are sure that he will be highly successful and the Chemistry class wishes him the greatest of luck. (37) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 CHAO MING YU Textile College of China General Phi Psi IT was in the fall of 1926 when this young man arrived to acquire our method of textile manufacturing. Ming, who is quite a ladies man, may he often found driving his little car to Providence. Who might he there, one will never know, for Ming is one cozey hoy. He is not very noisy, hut can he heard all over the building when Sullivan puts the textile goose on him. Ming is a good student and spends most of his time trying to convince Mr. Acomb that he is the best weaver and loomfixer who has ever taken a nut oft our Bobbies looms. Although Ming finds our methods rather complicated, without a doubt he will be a great success over in China. At least, " Ming " we wish you the best of luck. (38) CERTIFICATES THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 VICTOR BJORNGREN New Bedford High School Mechanical 1 HIS young man of the winning " name has a personality of like nature. He has won the hearts of all instructors by the application of his wholehearted interest to the tasks set before him. Being gifted with both brains and brawn he masters the electron with the same ease that he " chips the block " . We might add that in that latter form of entertainment he has no peer. Such being the situation we would not be greatly surprised to learn in a few years hence that " Vic " is the chief custodian of the " lazy bar " . (40) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR CLARENCE BURT New Bedford High School Mechanical Delta Kappa Phi 13 URT came to " Tech " from the local High School with a very decided opinion as to the prevalent laxity in modern educational institutions. However, Profs. Crompton and Bayreuther took him into camp and apparently satisfied his craving for both physical and mental exertion for he has been heard to mention on more than one occasion that he was kept " pretty busy " . Nevertheless, he still finds time to be very mysteriously absent, the frequency of which is extremely annoying not only to the personnel of the Mechanical de- partment but to the " big shot " as well. Strange as it may seem he always turns up with very plausible stories which (to use the words of one of our cynics) are " too good to be true " . (41) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 HENRY CZECHOWSKI New Bedford High School Mechanical We are somewhat puzzled as to how to present this young man. He is still more or less of a mystery to us. For the life of us we can ' t see how he does it but it seems that he hangs wallpaper and runs a lathe with much the same grace that he glides over the polished floors of Duff ' s Hall. Being possessed of an iron constitution he puts us all to shame by th e con- sumption of vast quantities of those liquids whose production is in direct violation of the Eighteenth Amendment. This disclosure may enlighten some who were in the dark as to Henry ' s haggard appearance Monday mornings. Can a man of that nature do anything but succeed in life? We wonder! (42) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR JOHN FOSTER Athletic Editor, Fabricator. Mechanical H ERE he is, the ' Arrow Collar ad. " of the mechanical department. After learning all that Prof. Crompton had to offer in his course John plans to further his education at the University of Vermont. Foster through his unlimited ability should successfully keep the banner of the company of Foster and Lightborn on high. John, we see you in some years to come surveying the road that leads to " My Blue Heaven " with Edith L. waiting for you at the garden gate. (43) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 WILLIAM FARR, JR. New Bedford High School Mechanical Delta Kappa Phi I N a circus this young man would be introduced as the " one and only " but when one knows him they may call him " Buster. " One always finds him at ease whether he is discussing electrons with Prof. Crompton or working at his chosen vocation as a circus barker. His " Step one side gents and let the elephant — pea — nuts, popcorn and crackerjack " always attracts an eager audience. His versatility does not end here for he has been seen on several occasions to have been in the company of what to all external appearance seems to have been a member of the opposite sex. All attempts at determining the color of said person have been fruitless. However, it has reached our ears from a very reliable source that should we conduct our investigations on Coggeshall Street in what is known as the " Hungarian District " we may be rewarded with a very startling disclosure. (44) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR GEORGE GROEBE New Bedford High School Mechanical GEORGE ' S wild and frenzied search for knowledge finally brought him to the portals of Textile. After leaving the local high school he entered Herrick ' s Institute for a short time and soon left feeling that his abilities would find much more fertile soil at " Tech " . We hear that his progress was just short of being phenomenal, for reference of which would advise one to see Mr. Walton. He has expressed himself quite plainly in regard to that fact. However, George does not content himself with mastering the intricasies of the lathe. He wields a wicked pair of drumsticks in conjunction with his other accomplishments. His vocation be what it may we feel safe in predicting his success. (45) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 HENRI MARTEL Knitting Course Delta Kappa Phi jTOP them, fellows! Just hold the girls back one moment, please, while we introduce to you this fair and attractive specimen of masculine pulchritude. Meet, Mr. Martel, folks, " Tech ' s " most outstanding imported product. Henri first saw the light of day in Paris and later moved with his family to Central America. He received his secondary education at Page Military Academy, California. Deciding then to learn the knitting trade he matriculated to " Tech " to get the " dope " . Note the little " whatsit " on the upper lip. That ' s what knocks ' em cold, makes ' em cry, makes ' em mad, makes ' em jealous and makes ' em envious. Just one heart broken after another but Henri says he can ' t help it, so what ' s the use? If you ' d like to see Henri in his element some evening the chances are good that you may see him with " General " Perras at either the " Coco Bola " , Lincoln Park or Duff ' s. We wish Henri lot ' s of luck and do not doubt but he ' ll make an excellent " super " of a knitting mill, — if " Flo " Ziegfield does not land him first. (46) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR HENRY STASIAN New Bedford High School Mechanical " Silence is Golden ' APPARENTLY Henry places much stock in the above proverb for it is seldom that we hear him waste words. That, by no means, is no indication that he has nothing to say. He simply will not engage in useless conversation. Such being the situation, we just cannot understand his popularity with the " femmes " in the North End. We were always led to believe that it was the glib tongue which won the feminine heart. Obviously Henry has other methods. On a recent occasion when he waxed loquacious he let fall a few pearls of wisdom which gave us an insight into his character. From further observations along that line we have arrived at the conclusion that he intends to be a dancing master at some future date. Good luck, Henry ! (47) THE FABRICATOR 1929 ROGER TURGEON Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi WE doubt if anyone has ever entered the " lab " and not heard our " Rajah ' s " lusty voice dominating over all. This is not what gets our goat, however ; it ' s the fact that he usually has something to say. Roger has proven himself undoubtedly to be the " Information Guide " of the Senior Class as his gleanings are from far and wide infallibly reliable. In the realm of baseball he bas garnered many honors for " Tech " during the last three seasons as caretaker of the center-field garden. Incidentally, associated with his baseball career, we may mention the exhibition he gave the boys in gastronimical gymnastics (quantity consumption) after the game with St. John ' s Prep at Danvers. During his last year he also showed his versatility by playing basketball for the old Maroon and Gray. Just one thing has remained a mystery about Roger during his sojourn with us. We certainly would like to know the contents of that large misshapen bundle which he secretly smuggles into school early every morning. It is rumored that it was possibly his fuel supply as no one ever saw him leaving the campus with it. As to his future, we cannot presage definitely, but we are sure that with his unfailing initiative and his almost unlimited retentiveness he is sure to be outstanding among his fellow workers. (48) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR General Course SAMUEL WINSPER " Loviri Sam " Phi Psi " PEOPLE call him Lovin ' Sam " . Sam still reminds us of the words of that catchy melody. His obliging attitude, ever-ready smile, and winning personality have won him a host of friends, not only at " Tech " but elsewhere as well. It is with much pain that " Sam " recalls several incidents in which his chivalrous soul ran away with his reason. " Sam " , after a basketball game in Lowell, being the Good Samaritan that he is, offered to escort a radiant young creature home — some four miles distant. " Sam " later let us understand in no uncertain terms just what position " femmes " of the afore mentioned calibre hold in his estimation. It is all very sad indeed. Let it be clearly understood at this time, however, that " Wimmin " are of only minor importance in his life. Besides distinguishing himself scholastically he has served as captain of the Basketball Team and patrolled the right-held garden on our nine.

(55) SOPHOMORES THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 SOPHOMORE CLASS AFTER working or perhaps spending the vacation in a more or less enjoyahle manner it surely did seem good to get back to our Alma Mater and greet all the boys again. There were, of course, many new faces in the crowd but the frater- nities ' friendly spirit made them feel more at ease and they knew that they were among friends and would enjoy their sojourn at " Tech " . We were soon back in the stride and each clay seemed to bring something new. For instance, there arose the question as to whether the freshies should wear hats or not. It later turned out, that they wore them when they pleased, but " Jim " Dow and Shaw had their hands full for a while. The front door should need a thorough overhauling after the rushes that were made in it, until Mr. Smith stepped in and settled all arguments. At any rate, the finances from the caps seemed to have flopped, although " Jim " seemed to be going home more often, and Shaw was known to have bought his own cigarettes a couple of times. After the usual " frat " rush and initiations, the boys began to recuperate so fast that some of them could actually walk in a few days. Then in the " lab " the frosh were shown what to do in case of fire and many a hose was seen in the desks of many of the boys. (58) 1929 THE FABRICATOR It is claimed that someone actually was throwing snowballs around. Now of course that should not lie allowed in a classroom for who knows but what a stray snowball may hit an instructor. Who suggested it, we don ' t know, but we were soon making plans for the Junior dance. We don ' t know how we did it, but would you believe it, we made 98 cents profit and that means, clear of all expenses. So immediately a checking " account was established in one of the local banks on Acushnet Ave. Anyway, I guess a good time was had by all, except Lassow, so we can at least be reassured by that. In th e Chemistry " Lab " you can easily find out the long and short of it. The short of it is Pee Wee, Dartmouth ' s own, a hunter of large and small game (but mostly small) and it is a familiar sight on a bleak winter morning to see this famed hunter trudging through the woods in search of a grizzly, with his musket loaded with BB on his shoulder. Then one may see the representative of the Acushnet River navy. His father is still recovering " from the shock of paying $7.00 for the B W steam bock. In Designing we ' ve found plenty of trouble, trying to master double cloths and Lenos. In Dyeing our results were good — sometimes. C. Y. P. offered no relief with Roving and Spinning Frames while Doubling and Drafting wasn ' t anything to laugh at. We all liked Steam Engineering — excepting Wednesday afternoons. Such minor things as studies did not worry us however. We soon found out that we had something " to be really interested in, that is Athletics. In Soccer our class was represented by " Rajah " Karl, " Jim " Dow, " Charlie " Agrella and Cecil Fell. Did they prove their mettle ? Well, I ' ll say ! The Team was undefeated all season thereby bringing glory to Dear Old " Tech " , as defeating the ranking teams in this section is no small honor. In basketball the class did not have so many representatives, but " Rajah " Karl, who did represent the class, did no small amount to uphold the school ' s reputation of having a fighting " team. When this was being written the baseball season was just getting under way. The class has a wealth of material to send to the baseball team. " Rajah " Karl and " Stan " Prokuski, regulars on last year ' s team will no doubt again fight for " Dear Old Tech " , while of the substitutes of last year ' s team " Charlie " Agrella and " Red " will in all probability secure a regular berth. Summing up the baseball team shows it will be one of the strongest " Tech " ever had. (59) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 This article would not be complete if the class officers were not introduced. I present to you : — Albert Scassia President Henry Martelle Vice-president Gilbert Othote Treasurer Gonzalo Perez Secretary The second lap of our school life is coming to an end. We are both glad and sorry that the next year will be our last at " Dear Old Tech " . We are glad because our plans for the future are finally taking shape and sorry because we too in another year will be going away from the life we learned to like. To our departing brothers the Seniors, we, the Class of 1930 wish all the success that is due them. They have worked hard for the upholding of the School ' s reputation and therefor success cannot be denied them. In leaving their Alma Mater they need not worry that the school ' s traditions will be disgraced. We pledge to uphold all the principles and in turn give them to our succeeding brothers as clean and strong as we received them. Class of 1929 we bid you " Adieu! (60) FRESHMEN THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 CLASS OF 1931 OX this memorable clay, September 10, 1028, through the portals of this in- stitution of learning came a group of very intelligent looking young men and one young lady, which group was to make the history of the class of 1931. After getting our schedules and spending a young fortune on supplies for the year we started our classes. As I have said before, we were a very bright and intelligent group of young men so it did not take us long to learn how to set the ma- chines. The most startling thing of it all was to see them run after we got through monkeying with them. It was not long before we knew how to set the picking- stick on the Picker so as to get two mechanical views of a ten end twill which was to repeat on the Doffer constant for the loom crank. Figure that out if you can. In the " Lab " we soon learned that H.,0 was good to drink and such things as tetramethyldiaminobenzophenol methane really did exist. The " frats " soon claimed some of the fellows and it was noticed that the day after the initiations that they preferred to stand up or that if they did choose to sit clown they got into their places very slowly and as easily as possible. The sophomores with characteristic unscrupulousness tried to take us into (62) 1929 THE FABRICATOR camp by selling us permits for distilled water at the very nominal price of ten cents each. Our very cynical nature saved us hoth humiliation and expense. We settled once for all that old and erroneous belief that all freshmen are timid and gullible. Xext the " wise fools " , or pardon me, the Sophomores started to impose upon us. First the} ' made us buy nice little red and gray hats and then, too, they would net let us use the front door to either enter or go out. Will we ever forget what happened to one sophomore when he tried to enforce this ruling. I think not. After this incident we were not stopped from entering any door that we wished. Soon the school sports called us and we placed four men on the Soccer squad, two regular and two subs. Incidentally, one of the men, Preston Cook, was elected captain of the team. After a successful season at Soccer came Basketball. To answer this call the class gave five men, four first team men and one second team man. It was just after Christmas that we thought that we should like to organize and elect our class officers. After a little time wasted in electing a chairman for the meeting, Peter Warburton was unanimously elected president. Preston Cook easily defeated his man in the race for vice-president. The polls were very close for the secretary, hut " Jim " Gardiner finally won out. For the man who was to handle our money the majority seemed to think that " Red " Pierce was as good as any. Next came our exams which we welcomed with opened arms to sav nothing of the opened notes. I am sure that we all did very well, for 1 have heard of no person in the class who got less than twenty-five in any of them. I call that pretty good. As to what will happen in the future I cannot say but I am sure that the class of 1931 will continue to be the best that has ever been at the New Bedford Textile School. (63) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 ATHLETICS SOME of us remember well the heights attained by last season ' s basketball team. Although this season ' s team was not as successful, Textile ' s banner was upheld by its undefeated soccer team. Making its first appearance in soccer circles " Tech " introduced a team which was more than a match for any school team in New England and which carried away the banner which is annually presented by the U. S. F. A. to the outstanding soccer team in each section of the country. Led by Cap ' t Cook, former High School soccer and tennis star, Textile easily defeated such teams as Brown, Dartmouth, Dean Academy, etc. Durfee " Tech " . gave r.s the only trouble of the season. As though it were impossible to avoid the wish of the " God of Sports " these two teams were unable to play other than two tie games. The supremacy of the two will have to be decided at some future date. Much credit is due Capt. Cock and " Pete " Drozek for their outstanding play, but we must not forget the man who so capably filled that position which is so important to the success of every term. That man is Coach Fred Beardsworth who turned out as successful a team as has ever represented Textile in sports. Mr. Beardsworth is well known in soccer circles in this part of the country, as a man, who in his day was among the best of players. With the closing of the soccer season " Tech " opened its Basketball season. Graduation having stolen most of his last season ' s brilliant squad, Coach Schofield worked under a great handicap. From a small number of candidates Mr. Schofield built a strong team around Capt. Geo. Rawcliffe. Among those who held regular berths on the team were " Red " Pierce, former High School player, and Roger Karl who for several seasons featured on New Bedford High ' s football and base- ball teams. Others who gave their best efforts for " Tech ' s " basketball success were " Dan " Sullivan, one of last year ' s subs, Pres. Cook, a freshman and " Brad " Stevens who starred with the Clermont Jrs. when that team held the Championship of the Mt. Pleasant Community Center league. A green team cannot hope for too much success in its first season and while basketball followers are hoping for a better season next year, baseball enthusiasts are awaiting the advent of baseball. After a very poor showing on the diamond last year Textile, with a number of promising freshmen and most of the veterans from last season ' s squad, is prepared to redeem it ' s lost footing in the realm of baseball. The prospects for the team are unusually good. Most promising among the pitching candidates are Roger Karl, last season ' s mainstay and " Red " Pierce, (66) 1929 THE FABRICATOR former High School star. With such candidates as Adams, Drozek, Twardowski, Cook, and Stevens, Coach Gero has little to worry ahout, in forming his infield. Outstanding among those expected to try out for the out-field are Turgeon, Scacia and Prokuski, last season ' s regular out-field. The hack stop position will probably be taken care of by either Bartlett or Foster, last season ' s catchers. Due to the untiring efforts of our athletic committee ( Mr. Crompton and Mr. Busby), the teams this year had very attractive schedules. That reminds me that nothing has been said about those boys who hold the most unspectacular yet very important positions on their respective teams. Adam Shaw, manager of the basketball team and " Jm T Pilkington manager of the baseball and soccer teams have earned the gratitude of their fellow-students, by their constant cooperation with the Athletic Committee, in making the affairs of the various sport clubs run smoothly. (67) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 SOCCER II took several long a nd trying sessions to round otu football team into shape hut when a thing is worth doing ii is worth doing well and Coach Beardsworth usually locs his work well. Textile opened up with Vocational and when the fii I whistle Mew our boys were ready, THE ( H ' KNINC G . ll-. TEXTILE 2 I ( ATIONAL i hit played in ever) department Vocational went down to defeat before Textiles rushes. Vocational opened the scoring when Taylor edged one by Rawcliflfe ,i few minutes after the opening of the game. Not to be »ut dune Zajac put his team on even terms ;i minute later. " Teeh " then broke loose and for the rest of the game they had the ball in Vocational ' s goal area, A few minutes before the hall ended X;ij;ie again scored on a pass hum Paremba, Rawcliflfe, playing his firsl game as a goal tender showed unusual ability to handle the ball. With the possible exception oi Roger Karl the rest ol the team had had more or less experience in the kicking game and found the going easy. (68) 1929 THE FABRICATOR AGIE GAME NEW BEDFORD 1 - DURFEE 1 Displaying all the qualities that gave them an undefeated season New Bedford and Durfee opened soccer relations with a tie game. After a fast and scoreless first period New Bedford scored on a goal which bounded off Fayon, one of Durfee ' s half-backs. With about four minutes to play the visitors were awarded a foul and on the penalty kick " Chick " Barnes counted for the final and tying score of the game. " TECH " BLANKS DEAN Although handicapped by a decided shift in the line up, Coach Beardsworth ' s kickers handed Dean Academy a 3-0 beating on Dean ' s home field. A larger score was averted by the sensational stops of Teckler, Dean ' s star goal tender. After getting their bearings on the strange field our boys outplayed, and out generaled the home team. After about 15 minutes of play Adams scored on a pass from Paremba. This was the only goal scored of the first half but Dow scored the second talley of the game about three minutes after the opening of the second half, Textile marched down the field and Adams scored on a pass from Dow for the third and last score. DURFEE AGAIN TIES NEW BEDFORD With the defence of both teams featuring Durfee and New Bedford played their second tie game of the season. It was an evenly contested game leaving the spectators only too satisfied. Durfee was the first to score when Hemessv beat out Rawcliffe. To even up matters Adams rolled one into the net about two minutes after the opening tally. About ten minutes after this charge Peitavino scored for the home team on a hard drive which easily beat Dewsnap, the visitor ' s goalie. With about four minutes to play McCullen put the ball between the bars and the game ended with the score tie. Durfee two — New Bedford two. " TECH " 1 - DARTMOUTH COLLEGE " Tech " invaded the Dartmouth College Campus and returned with a 1-0 vic- tory. The game was closely contested with the only score being made by Adams about twenty minutes after the opening of the game. The home team greatly out weighed the invaders and used this advantage considerably. Dartmouth had pre- viously beaten M. I. T. by a 7-1 score. (69) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 BROWN BEATEN BY 3-0 SCORE Fresh from its defeat of Dartmouth " Tech ' s " kickers took the Brown ' s measure by a 3-0 score at Aldrich Field, Providence. Most of the play was in front of Brown goal. The visitors scored their first goal when " Piet " headed a pass from Paremba into the goal. New Bedford ' s second goal came in the second half when Brown fouled and Drozek made the penalty kick good. After the second tally " Tech ' s " boys went wild and swept Brown off its feet. Dow counted for the last score when he headed the ball into the goal after a scrimmage in front of the goal. (70) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR BASKETBALL season Textile began WITH the closing " of the highly successful soccer hostilities on the basketball court. Beginning with a green squad, with the exception of Capt. Rawcliffe, Coach Schofield has developed the squad to such a degree that the team has an unusually good chance of landing the championship next year. ALUMNI OUTPLAYS VARSITY The alumni team, consisting of the celebrated Trip twins (Fred and Francis), Geo. Schofield, " Boob " Hathaway, Bill Sherman and Hoffman, proved too fast for this year ' s varsity in an exciting and rough game. Capt. Geo. Rawcliffe of the varsity, proved to be the most dangerous man on the floor and incidentally was fouled nearly every time he got the ball. Geo. Schofield, Capt. of last season ' s strong quintet, was outstanding among the Alumni players and kept his team well in the lead most of the time. The game ended with the score 37-34 and the Alumni on the big end: (71) 1929 THE FABRICATOR N. B. T. S. -- M. I. T. In the opening game of the season the " Tech " hoys found themselves out of their class when they visited M. I. T. at Camhridge. The visitors did well to hold the home team to a 10-5 score the first half but the Engineers proved too tough in the last two stages and walked away with a 39-15 victory. Allen was high scorer of the game with 13 pts. Molta M. I. T. ' s star guard counted for 11 pts. Capt. Rawcliffe of the visitors did unusually well against a team of such high rating and scored 11 of X. B. ' s total of 15 points. " TECH " MEETS SECOND DEFEAT " Tech " again found itself out of its class when it played Rhode Island State College at Kingston. Epstien thrilled the crowd with some dazzling shooting, scoring nine times from the floor. Ackroid and Horwitz of the State team scored 12 and 11 points respectively. Capt. Rawcliffe was again X. B. ' s leading scorer with 13 points, of which nine were from the foul line. Winsper and Karl played as good a defense game as could be expected on an outclassed team. VOCATIOXAL XOSES OUT " TECH " " Tech " fell before the well planned attack of the Vocational School squad in the latter ' s advance for the cities scholastic title. The trade school boys outclassed the " Tech " boys in the passing game but both teams scored equally from the floor. Vocational had the edge on " Tech " on the number of free throws, and these throws were the deciding factors of the game. Gomes with ten points was the high scorer while Pierce took Textile ' s honors with six points. " Tech ' s " last minute rally fell short and Vocational was left on the big end of the 24-19 score. " TECH " 30 - XORMAL 16 On their home floor for the first time of the season " Tech " took the measure of the Bridgewater teachers by a 30-16 score. Stevens played at his best and con- sequently added 1 1 points to " Tech ' s " scoring column. Capt. Rawcliffe was close behind with 10 points. Burke, the visiting star played well but could not offset the home team ' s score while Shaw contributed 3 of the remaining points. (72) THE FABRICATOR 1929 DEAN 49 - " TECH " 32 Dean Academy with six straight wins in six starts, defeated " Tech " on Dean ' s home floor. Magut, Dean ' s, xA.ll Connecticut Center, was the center of a strong attack which at times rushed " Tech " oft " it ' s feet. " Red " Pierce and Roger Karl starred for New Bedford while Worall and Teckler were Dean ' s outstanding- stars. At the end of the first quarter Dean led by 13-5 and held the lead throughout the game, the final score being 49-32. COAST GUARD 34 - N. B. " TECH " 25 A strong scoring attack in the first quarter of the game enabled the Coast Guard Academy to defeat " Tech " by a score of 34-25. Weidland and Malony were the heme team stars and they were the center of the final attack which gave their team victory. Stevens and Rawcliffe were the visiting stars and made the game interesting by their fast floor work and spectacular shooting. Stevens and Weidland were tied for scoring honors each with nine points to his credit. SECOND VOCATIONAL GAME In their second game of the season Vocational severely whipped " Tech " . Playing an unusually flashy game, Richlinski was undoubtedly the outstanding player of the evening. He scored nine times from the floor and once from the foul line. Winsper and Sullivan played well for " Tech " but their best was not enough to give them victory. Both Winsper and Sullivan scored three times apiece from the court with Winsper counting once from the foul line. The final score was 37-17. HOW THEY LINED UP IN SCORING In the eleven games this season " Tech ' s " opponents scored 416 to their 281 points. " Geo. " Rawcliffe scored 70 points in 6 games to lead by far the season ' s individual scoring. He averaged 13 1 6 points a game. " Dan " Sullivan came second with 53 points in 11 games for an average of 4.8 points per game. Winsper and Stevens scored 47 and 44 points respectively.

The Phi Psi hoys lead by Capt. " Jimmy " Adams were leading at the % mark by a score of 10-9 hut in the final period the Deltas outplayed their rivals by a 9-3 score. The game was very rough and Coach Schofield who was refereeing the game called 24 fouls. Karl and Sullivan were the high scorers of the games with 7 points each. Warburton scored twice in the last frame to give his team a decided lead. The game ended with the score 18-13 in favor of the Delta Kappa Phi.

Shortly after the brothers registered and renewed acquaintances Delta Kappa Phi started the " Freshman Rush. " Open night was next in order which was held at the New Bedford Hotel. A banquet was served after which the members and guests were entertained. Look at the new brothers who joined us; Karl, Warburton, Bartlett, Pierce, Akin, Sanders, Said, from Peru, and Potel, from Paris. The night of initiation " Red " Murphy, Mullarkey, MacDonald, and other alumni brothers assisted in putting the pledges through their paces, and " What a dance they did do ! " By the way, that night Warburton landed in Tiverton. Apparently the road signs misled " Pete. " The new brothers soon took advantage of using the " frat " room down town. The alumni brothers also helped to increase the electric bill. Oh, yes. I forgot the successful dance in Duff ' s Hall last October, which, from all indications, was the best dance held this term. Decorations by Othote (76) 1929 THE FABRICATOR Co. helped to put on a different aspect for our fair patrons. ATHLETICS Delta Kappa Phi was well represented on the court, having Pieice, Karl and Warburton on the varsity squad. Again D ' K rose to the occasion to take Phi Psi into camp on the basketball floor to the tune of 18-13 score. Our winning team consisted of Karl, Turgeon, Drozek, Pierce, and Warburton. Soccer was revived after several years, through the efforts of Pilkington, " Tech " having a wealth of material in this sport, was fortunate to field an un- defeated team. Drozek, Fell, Karl, Warburton, and Pilkington, held regular berths on the championship squad. D ' K ' s social activities were closed temporarily in order that the brothers could " prep up " for the mid-year exams. In February an " Open night de luxe " was held ; dancing and a bullet luncheon provided a very enjoyable evening for those to whom invitations were extended. Again the folds of Delta Kappa Phi were increased by the addition of Deptula, and Demarco, formerly of Lowell Textile. The regular initiation was administered to these two new brothers. The Annual Convention of Delta Kappa Phi is to be held in Philadelphia, May 3, 4, 5. Turgeon and Burt expect to attend. They are going in state ; yes, in state, I think they will have to hike over at least four states before they reach their destination. The delegates to this convention had not been appointed at the time that the book went to press. Spring brought baseball with the warming up of . such regulars as Karl, pitcher ; Drozek, third baseman ; Turgeon, center field ; Pierce, pitcher ; Bartlett, catcher; and Othote. Delta chapter had twenty-two active brothers attending Tech, five of whom will be lost through graduation. They are Farr, Drozek, M artel, Turgeon and Pilkington. ALUMNI NOTES It might be interesting to some of our Alumni as well as active brothers that " Red " Murphy is now located in New Hampshire. " Chuck " Fead has finally beard the call of Cupid in that he marched clown the aisle to the tune of Mendelsohn ' s march. Blackmer is down in balmy California, and the Tripp twins are continuing their learning at North Carolina State College. (77) THE FABRICATOR 19 2 9 PHI PSI FRATERNITY BETA CHAPTER SEPTEMBER 10, ' 28 was the occasion for much Fraternal greeting and re- union. Everyone pronounced himself to be in fine condition after a " hard " summer ' s work. " " Jim " Adams claimed the Bluffs was a great place to work (his points), while " Cliff " Brookes seemed drawn a trifle fine from a strenuous campaign at Lincoln Park. Judgin g from the amount of money floating around seme of the boys must have worked for experience and experience only. The banquet was a huge success with the members of the faculty and mam- new men present. Many of the freshmen who sat near Mr. Moore with an ex- pectant hope in their heart and light in their eye learned to their sorrow that that worthy did " indulge in the filthy weed " and did prefer a " Lucky to a Sweet. ' ' After the banquet the boys adjourned to Acushnet Park to see night life in Bohemia and dancing a la classe. Due to getting off to a late start only four new men were pledged. Ask the candidates if the boys in the ' Trat " don ' t wield a torrid bludgeon. (78) 19 2 9 THE FABRICATOR " There are times that try men ' s souls, " and the pledges will swear that the night of the initiation was " the one. " With the temperature down around zero the boys needed plenty of exercise to keep warm and none of the candidates complained of the cold. On the contrary they declared they were uncomfortably hot with burn- ing " sensations running through various parts of their anatomy. The refreshments served the men were greatly appreciated by the fraternity. " Pres " Cook, Pakula, Prokuski and Paremba weren ' t the least fastidious in their tastes. Everything offered was greedily devoured. To cap the ceremonies the boys were taken on a sight seeing tour and unfortunately missed connections for the return trip. Cook declares he saw more of New Bedford ' s suburban district that night than at any time previous in his life. Pierce proved himself the strong man of the fraternity and made quite an im- pression on the boys while " Ed " Farrow sure made them toe the mark. Our Christmas party was a " bang-up " time. The eats would have fed the chapter for the next six months. " Greg " Meagher lived on cake for the follow- ing five days. We were deeply grieved at losing George Palmer and the presence of a goodly number of Phi Psi brothers at the funeral was greatly appreciated. Graduation will cut quite a swath in the ranks of the chapter, but judging from the active members who will return next year Phi Psi will enjoy as big a year as ever.

This proud and noble bird usually confines her activities to the school campus where she is so omnipresent. Greater difficulties are encountered, however, when one endeavors to describe her. A most remarkable analogy may be noted between the " Goose " and electricity. No one can desci " ibe her physical appearance because it is so peculiar that a description becomes difficult, but neither has anyone any doubt of her most presumptuous presence when one either wilfully or unknowingly chances to trespass on her sacred and most hallowed domain. On first offense the retaliat- ing shock is most paralyzing and excruciating. Later, as with most acquaintances, a meeting with this wonderful ornithological product of Dame Nature gives one most infinite pleasure and a new lease of life which temporarily relieves one of the drab of earthly affairs and carries him into the ecstasies of worlds beyond. The most depraving fact that we are forced to bemoan is that this old barnyard clarion of ours is most indiscriminate in showing her partiality. It seems that " Ed " Farrow, " Greg " Meagher and " Cliff " Brookes have become bosom friends of this most potent factor in a school session. The first-mentioned individual has even gone so far as to teach the " Goose " to eat from hi s hand and a few other tricks, the highest aspiration of a " Tech " Senior. Poor good-natured Sully is the boy who has coaxed, cajoled and beseeched this independent bird to his utmost and has received nothing but pecks for his efforts. Perhaps the most afflicted man in the class is our friend, Ming, who has been the victim of this unrelenting, goat- getting " Goose " . Now we have come to the parting of the ways and we must leave the " Goose " after three years of intimate friendship. We are forced to say it with tears in our eyes : " Adieu, ' Goose ' . Keep on the good work. In years to come thoughts of you will linger in our fondest memories of dear old ' Tech ' .

Compliments of the NASHAWENA MILLS ' mmmMMmmmmmmBmm; Gone are the days . . . . when careful housewives lowered the shades in their parlors to prevent fading; gone are the days when the newly bought dress retained its gorgeous hues only as long as it remained unwashed; gone are the days when naught was expected of colored fabrics but fading and disappointment. The time has arrived when style and price alone cannot " sell " a fabric or garment. The durability of the colors now receive equal consideration, for whatever affects the life of the color affects the life of the fabric, and what- ever reduces the life of the fabric reacts unfavorably upon the manufacturer and the store which sells it.
