NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page five 1936 THE FABRICATOR HISTORT OF THE SCHOOL Ti HE New Bedford Textile School was established by the trustees and incorporated in accordance with Chapter 475, Acts of 1895. The school opened for day students in October 1899. The first year, enrollment was 11 day students and 183 evening students. The first building was 64 by 100 feet, three stories high with an annex of 12 by 67 feet for the engine addition, the Mechanical, Chemistry and Designing departments were added to the curriculum. In 1905, due to the increase in the enrollment, an addition carrying the building to the Maxfield Street line was built. The third addition was put up in 1911 on the north side of the original building. These two were connected by a tunnel and a bridge. In this addition, the Mechanical, Chemistry and Designing departments were established. Another expansion was necessitated in 1922 and the Max- field Street building was extended west to the line of the original building. In this addition, the C. Y. P. and weaving departments were extended. On the third floor, a fine gymnasium was built. At present, the school is one of the most sanitary, ample, and effi- cient textile schools in the country. The present building contains 100,000 square feet of floor space and over $275,000 worth of equipment. NEW Page six BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 1936 THE F ABR IC ATOR THE FAeiIL Tr MR. JOSEPH H.

Now the parting of the ways has been reached. It will be hard to break up the old gang but it must be done because the boys have finished their studies and must be off on the quest for fame and fortune — mostly the latter ! It was in September 1933 that we first got together determined to learn something of the Textile game. The first thing that we learned was to leave a deposit at the office, and then each instructor nonchalantly pro- ceeded to give instructions on how to leave some more. We soon settled down to our studies (except when there was a crap game going on in the lab) and our vocabularies improved tremendously. We learned of such phrases as " according-ly " and " long irun ook " . Fraternity bids and initiations held the spotlight for the next few weeks. The pledged members were put through their paces daily and at the final initiation there was a hot time in the old town that night. Strange to say, there were no fatalities. Election time came around and a very capable slate of officers was chosen as follows: President, Andrew Adams; vice president, David Aulisio; secretary, Ruth Dutton ; treasurer, Charles Sherman. Our class was well represented in sports that year. The soccer pitch found D. Aulisio, Szulik, Leahy and Pelczarski kicking the ball around for dear old Textile. On the basketball court we saw Szulik, D. Aulisio, Flynn, Durfee and Greenough dropping the ball in regularly. Our representatives on the diamond were Flynn, Barry, Leahy, D. Aulisio, Greenough and Pelczarski. There being many good dancers in our class and the desire to have a treasury, elaborate preparations were made for the Freshman dance. It was pronounced a staggering success by everybody due to hearty co-opera- tion from the fellows. The class was learning rapidly and towards spring we knew how to make the weave room look like a junk yard and how to shoot very accur- ately with a rubber tube. In the lab there were many budding " Dilling- ers " . Final exam time rolled around with its many headaches but most everyone managed to get by thus ending the first year at Textile. It sure made one feel good to know that you had ten weeks ' vacation in front of you. The following September most of the boys returned to go on with their studies. Old acquaintances were renewed and soon everyone was back in the old routine. But there was one person we missed — Mr. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page twenty-two 1936 THE FABRICATOR Smith. The duties of principal were now to be handled by Mr. Handford and we soon got acquainted and liked him very much. In this second year, there was less fooling and horsing around. The class seemed to realize that they had come for the education and not to waste their time. The class held another election and those who placed in the money were : President, Dave Aulisio ; vice president, Bill Leahy ; secretary, Carl Hardy; treasurer, Charlie Sherman. In mid-winter the class promoted another dance. Due to the spirits of the committee and most of the boys, this dance was a success and netted some welcome cash. Mid-year exams came and passed. They did not create the furror as in the first year because by this time everyone was more or less used to exams and more exams. Came spring and the young men ' s minds (with Mr. Gourley ' s help) lightly turned to thoughts of baseball. We had a whale of a team as usual. At this time a few trips to various textile manufacturing concerns were arranged. They proved to be very interesting and we picked up much valuable information. Time was beginning to slip by rapidly now and before we knew it June was upon us again and we once more broke up for the Summer recess. In the Fall we returned to school and started on the last lap. This was an extremely busy year with our thesis to do and finishing up odds and ends and concentrating on that branch we would like to make our life work in the field of Textiles. Our class officers for this important year were : president, Dave Aulisio; vice president, Laurence Durfee; secretary, Bill Leahy; treasur- er, Francis McMullen. There were many committees chosen to handle such matters as " The Fabricator " , class rings, and the social events of the class. The Senior Dance Committee was composed of: Adams, Krumbholz, Begin, Szulik, Soucy, and Ruff ley. Those serving on the Prom Committee were : Barry, Krumbholz, Hardy, Flynn, Turner, and Kestenbaum. Everybody worked hard and did their job well and everything the class undertook turned out well. With Commencement came the end of our stay at Textile. We will always be able to look back on these years with pleasant thoughts. To the School and to the instructors we wish to express our hearty and sin- cere appreciation for all they have done for us. Each member of the class, I am sure, wishes his fellow classmates a highly successful career. " Sobrius Esto " NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page twenty-three THE FABRICATOR 1936 PROPHECT T was cold that night in New York, and there I was alone and with- out a friend in the " Big City " . I spied a neon sign that flashed the mes- sage " Hardy ' s Bar " . My heart quickened. Could it be possible. I rushed through the door and sure enough there ' was Carl dishing it out. " Hello, you old son of a gun " , I yelled. " Well if it isn ' t Beck " , said Carl. " Stick around awhile " . He called for his partners, Barry and Soucy, who were out back, making pretzels. We got together and proceeded to talk over old times — in between beers. " Seen any of the gang? " I inquired. " Flynn and McMullen stopped in last week on their way back up north. They made a fortune selling clip spot overcoats to the Eskimos " . " Don ' t tell me those two know how to make lenos " . " No " , said Carl, " the stuff is designed by Begin Deptula Inc. which makes it bad enough but when Durfee gets through bleaching it the goods are not much good for anything else but sale to the Eskimoes. " " Well " , I said, " I ' ve got to be moving. I am going to Russia to in- vestigate a crop of harness reeds which my company grows over there. Szulik is in charge but is having trouble keeping up production. They grow in swampy places but the Soviets are draining all the marshes so we think we will turn to doup twine which does well in filled in swamps. " My boat was leaving in ten minutes so I left the bar and started for the docks. As I was walking down the street a voice piped up and said, " Want to buy some candy, mister? " I turned and there was Parkins with his ever present box of candy. When he saw me he said, " Oh it ' s you. Wait a minute. " Then he pulled out a little green book and said, " You owe me twenty cents from fifteen years ago. " I paid him and asked him what he knew. " All I know is that Kestenbaum and I are having a tough time try- ing to collect from you birds. I hired Kesty to help and give him 2% commission. If he collects all the debts he ' ll be in the dough for the rest of his life and I won ' t have to work either. " I just gave him a queer look and hurried aboard my boat. The first person 1 ran into was Pilkington. " What are you doing here? " I asked. " I ' m head lunchman and chief dish washer " , he replied. " It ' s a darn good job. Brindley, the mess boy, does most of the work. There ' s plenty of women on the boat and I ' ve got a girl in every port " . He told me that Parkinson was the Pilot and Colwell the engineer and between NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page twenty-four 1936 THEFABR ICATOR them and the Captain, who was Carroll, there was no telling where the boat was going and when you were going to get there. It took us ten weeks to cross the Atlantic and that according to Car- roll was fast time for his boat because Colwell had lost his steam sheets and had a tough time keeping the boilers going. It means that Ruffley and Lacerda would go on strike every once in a while for more liquor and refuse to fire the boilers. We then steamed into the Mediterranean and along the coast of Africa. Soon we sighted a row boat flying a distress signal. They were picked up and turned out to be Aulisio and Leahy. It seemed that Dave was cornered by Mussolini and sent to Ethiopia to do his part. Leahy, as a soldier of fortune for Ethiopia, met Dave on the battlefield and they shook hands, deserted the army and started for home. They were figuring on paddling across the Atlantic when we picked them up. About a month later, I got to Russia and there I found Harrison working in the lab. Szulik told me he wanted a Russian chemist but couldn ' t find one and as Harrison wes the next best thing he hired him. I asked him how the business was and he said they sold all their products to Rothkopf and Lipsitt, who had started up a mill in Palestine. That night I went down to the village dine and dance establishment and there was Krumbholz and his band. Mitchell was trying his best to do the vocals and was doing a wicked job. Over at one of the tables sat Greenough. He said that he was over here to cover the Olympics for the " Fairhaven Star " . I asked him for some news from home and he had bad news. It seems that Andy Adams was trying to invent a loom to weave cloth without any warp and it finally drove him nuts and they locked him up. " How about Goodell and Rioux? " I asked. ' ' Well " , he said, " the last I heard Rioux was official taster in a brew- ery and Goodell was still trying to go up in the world by running the ele- vator in the Empire State building. With my business finished I now had a yearning to get home. Green- ough told me that Giguere and Turner were starting on a non-stop flight from Russia to the United States and so I got in touch with Turner and he agreed to take me along. We started the next morning and about half way across the ocean Giguere went to sleep at the controls and the plane went into a tail spin and hit the water. The next thing that I remem- bered somebody was hauling me out of the dye jig and saying the edge of the jig was a H of a place to go to sleep.

NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page twenty-six |prnjj5 3o WA ' ft THE FABRICATOR 1936 FMSHMAM CHJGMI T L GROUP of utterly imbecilic, incompetent, and frivolous youngsters, as there now exists in the form of a Freshman chemistry class, has never before been seen or heard. A nightmare, the whole day through, these potential chemists go about their work with a free abandonness that does not guarantee the success of any experiment. Each member of the class has his peculiarities; in fact some are so outstanding that they have be- come the class pets. Many of the practical (?) jokes thus far have been aimed at Ed Hudecek and Arnold Aspden. If ever a man showed complete disgust with life in general, it was the time Eddie opened his locker and found it overflowing with methylene blue. The unknown solution that Arnold was analyzing seemed to become contaminated in some mysterious man- ner, and remained an unknown. Izzmirian makes a darn good substitute for a radio in the lab. (Especially the static). He shows enthusiasm by saying " It ' s a parodic- tal amphoterical rex " . We wonder if he ' s speaking Armenian. He now sings a tune composed of all the dyes on the shelf. His partner in crime, Nat Stetson, seems to be getting queerer all the time. He likes to sneak up on people and say " Boo " . Some of Nat ' s puns would arouse Ed Wynn. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL I ' tit e twenty-eif hl 1936 THE FABRICATOR We wonder what it is about hydrogen sulphide that ' ' Bull " Curry seems to find so enjoyable. He makes it at every opportunity, and seems to thrive on it. The trouble with him is that he thinks everyone else en- joys it, so he never makes it in the hood. Did you know that " Bull " is the class slicker? He gets to school at about 8:00 and combs his hair till about 8:20. If you want to know anything about the next war, just ask " Major " Smith. He ' ll talk you deaf and dumb. Another of his favorite topics is " the physiological and cerebral development of the aboriginal species ac- cording to the Darwinian theory of evolution " . Warning: Don ' t ever mention these subjects to Sid, or you ' re in for a three hour lecture. The biggest surprise of the year was the sudden elimination of pro- fanity in the lab. This was due to the formation of the " Sweet-Breath Club " , featuring Jack Ryan, Walker, Gagnon, and Arnold Ramalho. There were plenty of sore arms at first, but they ' re pretty careful now. Gagnon would make a better circus barker than P. T. Barnum. And when he starts pointing out the merits of " The National Union for Social Justice " , don ' t linger on. That walking dictionary, Bob Golub, has a very peculiar manner of asking for a cigarette. He says: " Would I be tresspassing on your in- dulgence or assuming too great an obligation if I were to request you to accommodate me with a cylindrical sheet of cellulose containing unoxi- dized tobacco? " He says it always works. " Dead-Pan " Benny Howe can show you the most beautiful photos of murder scenes and fatal auto accidents you ever saw. He ' s always on the spot with his camera trying to prove that the " other fellow " should not collect the insurance. Herk Miller would not be out of place in a medicine show with his " Looka here, looka here, looka here! " He actually chiselled three drops of reagent from Nat Stetson, which proves that he will be successful. Harry Avila usually comes sauntering into school at about 9 o ' clock. He tries to thumb a ride over the bridge until a quarter to nine, and then he starts to exert his pedal extremities. We believe he exchanges greet- ings with a few Fairhaven High School acquaintances! If you ' re looking for a chemical in the first year lab, and no one knows where it is, ask Bill Crookes in a polite manner, and he may give you a few molecules. Bill seems to be competing with the stock room. Leo Winiarski got a taste of spring showers a bit too prematurely the time one member of the class filled up a piece of rubber tubing with NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page twenty-nine THE FABR IC ATOR 1936 water and allowed it to contract violently in his face. It ' s a shame the soap wasn ' t handy or the job would have been complete. And while on the subject of H 2 0, we ' re not even aware of Fran Walsh ' s presence in the class, ' till he and his partner, Charlie Blossom, get down to work putting out imaginary fires with their rubber tubing attached to the hydrant. But they usually get the worst end of it when the better half (Hudecek is always in the lead because fools rush in where wise men fear to t read) uses the resources at its command and lowers the water pressure. Tom Barry took advantage of his surroundings by bringing his skates in every other day to be sharpened. This seems to indicate that he had a very successful skating and wolfing season. Considered from all angles, the first year chemistry class has proven its true worth. It has furnished two star basketball players, Ryan and Winiarski, has several outstanding students to answer the roll, and we believe that there are many more who could be outstanding. We ' ll see. R. Golub THE FRESHMEN NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page thirty 1936 THE FABRICATOR FRESHMAN GENERAL Gentle Reader: Obviously you will venture into this little episode of the idiosyncrasies or eccentricities of the " greenhorns of the Textile institution as just an- other page in the Fabricator. But mind you, the fruit of the future in that career of the shuttle and spindle lies here in this group of young men and women. " Water well the seed of youth with education because from it will spring the man of tomorrow. " The advice of this ancient Chinese pro- verb is just as sound and practical today as it was when first conceived many years ago. The ones who eventually win their way to the top in any field of endeavor are those who know a little more about their work than the average and consequently can do it a little better. A. L. JUST A SENTENCE OR TWO— Dexter Horvitz : Selling is better than making, as long as it ' s cloth. When asked the formula of success, Dec answers, " Study, study, and again I say study. " Madeline Robinson : Detests the name of Tuffy, and talks to Russ Carroll too much. Madeline ' s ambition is to be someone ' s secretary, but first she must be delivered from the horrors of the gears and pulleys of C. Y. P. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page thirty-one THE FABRICATOR 1936 Robert Potter: Tall and handsome and debonair. Writes his notes in shorthand, and can ' t decipher them. Bob ' s motto seems to be " God helps those who help themselves. " Before we knew we were much per- plexed as to where the looms were going. John Misiasek: A husky brute. Was once a six footer, but has shrunk. (Too much swimming, but not in water.) It is said of many a student that he appears in class in body but not in mind. Missie ' s case seems lacking both materially and spiritually. George Kovar: Should get together with DuPont. He ' d tell them a thing or two. Tarzan believes everyone should have a sense of humor. We must say that George is thoughtful enough to tell us when to laugh. Russell Vanni : Didn ' t use Kremel hair tonic. Knows the best jokes and women. Believes all work and no play makes Buck a dull boy, so he bought a car. And it runs, too ! Albert Louie: Says he doesn ' t study. Will bet anybody, anything. There ' s no place like Seattle to Al and if we don ' t look out he ' ll have us believing it. John Gaughan: Likes Fall River. Lays it kind of thick sometimes, but doesn ' t mean any harm. John ' s right at home here at Textile being brought up in a textile atmosphere. He knows just the places to sneak off to for a snooze. Under the cards for instance. Henry Vien : Doesn ' t say much, doesn ' t do much, but tries awfully hard. Hank never missed a basketball game. .He read of them all in the papers. " It ' s twenty-three cents saved, " says he. Alice Smith : Is learning the ropes. Has a cute smile and is very quiet to the boys. A bit of femininity that dropped in to find out just what the word, Textile, means. Christopher Best : Persons say he doesn ' t indulge in bottled bond, but we know better. Likes chocolate cake, if that means anything! Breezes around, and now and then startles the class to the consciousness of his presence by a brilliant idea. And still the world goes " round and round " ! A.

A wonderful talk on crocheting was given by " Tarzan " . He showed the members some fine knitting that was done by himself during the past winter. Games such as Whist, Old Maid, and Donkey, were played for the remainder of the evening. During the course of the games, some of the members began to gab and knit. " Tarzan " said he was learning a new stroke in knitting. He also said that he didn ' t have much time to attend club meetings because he played bridge at Mr. Richardson ' s home. " Bar-Fly " at that time interrupted and ordered two beers. He said that much of his time was spent at the " Moose Head " . The floor shows were getting better. " Candy Mart " Kovar (who is janitor at the Old Ladies Club) fell over himself while carrying in the two beers for " Bar-Fly " .

The third degree was given jointly with chapters from Lowell Textile and Durfee Textile at the Hotel Bradford in Boston. This occasion will long be re- membered by all who attended. Beta Chapter sponsored an " Alumni Nite " which was attended by a very large gathering of Alumni men. Phi Psi as usual was very well represented in athletics. The bas- ketball team was ably aided by David Aulisio and Stanley Koczera. The baseball team was helped by Bill Leahy, Eddie Flynn, Dave Aulisio, Nor- man Singleton, and John Misiasek.

The first social of the year was the annual dinner and smoker held at the summer home of Brother Joseph Norris at Padanaram. At this dinner the new candidates met the alumni members and instructors. The evening was enjoyed by all present. Two weeks later the twelve candidates began to wonder whether or not they should have pledged themselves when the yearly street initiation with its usual antics was held. On Friday night of this week the first degree was conferred upon the candidates at the summer home of Brother Begin. This evening practically all of the active and alumni members were present much to the discomfort of the new men. Nevertheless all were able to walk home unassisted after the ceremony was over. Two weeks later the second and third degrees were given to the new mem- bers at a regular meeting. This year Delta Chapter was fortunate enough to be able to welccme into its midst one of the newer additions to our school faculty, Mr. John E. Foster of the Mechanical Department. The activities of Delta Chapter this year included a party held at Brother Begin ' s summer home and a dance held at Cornell Hall. Plans are now under way for our final farewell dinner and party. This year Delta Chapter was represented at sports by Winiarski, Ryan, and Barry at basketball and Mello and Soucy at Soccer. This year Delta Chapter will lose three members at graduation.

While our membership is limited, it is substantially larger than in those of past years and it is to this fact that the success of our past year is due. A spirit prevails amongst the fraters that is truly fraternal and makes Beta Chapter a practical example of the saying " In Union There Is Strength " . The social activity of the chapter commenced on the evening of Octo- ber 16, 1935 when Beta sponsored its annual smoker at the New Bedford Hotel. Of the invited guests present, three were pledged at a later date. At the close of the pledge period the neophytes were formally inducted in- to the fraternity at the induction banquet at the " Eagle " in Fall River. The new members acquired the manners of the organization rapidly and have proven valuable additions. In March, Beta ran the second of its annual dinner dances. This was a scintillating affair, well attended in the Foyer and Aladdin Room of the New Bedford Hotel. The event was made more enjoyable by the presence of three fraters from Alpha Chapter. This year an innovation was introduced in that the annual convention, instead of being held in New York, was held in Providence. This took place on April 25 and the arrangement enabled many members from this section to attend. This June, Beta loses two active members by graduation, Hyman Rothkopf and Leon Lipsitt. Those who remain behind to carry on wish to convey their richest sentiments to these two who have completed a milestone in their career ; and it is likewise that they leave their heartiest feelings for conti nued success. As they, and the rest of their classmates, leave the old trail and set out upon the new, may they always remember that: " Everywhere in life, the true question is not what we gain but what we do " .

Through many hours of diligent practice and painstaking effort these boys have given us athletic teams that have risen from the position of mediocrity to one which is well known to local sports followers. They have combined TEAMWORK, ABILITY, with the WILL to win fairly and squarely no matter how rough the going, to build the teams of which they have a right to be proud. We are especially proud of the athletes of our own class who, we might say, seemed to have started this parade of high calibered aggrega- tions. That was in 193 4, our first year in school. At this time six mem- bers of the class formed the backbone of perhaps the best baseball team in the history of the school. The team was undefeated and averaged slightly more than ten runs per game which is proof in itself of consider- able power and ability. We were well represented on this year ' s hoop team which after compiling an exceptionally fine seasonal record went on to become runners up in the Inter City Tournament. And lastly, six members of the class were players on the 1935 soccer team which gar- nered one of the best records made by a New Bedford Textile School eleven in recent seasons. And so in closing we say to the players and coaches, CONGRATU- LATIONS ! May you always combine TEAMWORK, ABILITY, and the WILL to win with a slogan which is well worth remembering, " Sound in body, sound in mind " . COMMENTS We want you fellows to know that any comments concerning the various contests are meant in the best of fun, and we sincerely hope that they will be received in that spirit.

E ASE E AL L 19$ § Textile vs. Alumni With thirteen consecutive victories, counting the two preceding years, to their credit the Millmen ran the win streak to fourteen by de- feating the Grads in the usual opening game for the school team by the score of 10-9. Going into the last inning on the small end of a 9-8 score, the school team put on a spirited rally, interspersed with some hilarious base run- ning, to score two runs and win the game. Bucky Greenough capped the uprising when with two outs he " Frank Merriwelled " a long triple to center field, driving home Frankie Szynal with the winning run. Textile vs. Holy Family It was another easy win for the Millmen, by a 12-4 score over the Parochials. Textile made twelve hits, Szynal getting a home run and two NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page fifty-one THEFABRICATOR 1936 singles and D. Aulisio, Simmons, Lewis, and Greenough hitting doubles. Lewis held the High School lads to six and struck out the same number. Textile vs. Durfee Tech. It was sixteen wins and no losses as the New Bedford team demon- strated its superiority with a 4-1 win. Playing in heavy rain, Durfee led up to the last of the fifth when Lewis doubled and Durfee walked. Jasionek then doubled Lewis home with the tying run. Greenough ' s sac- rifice and infield outs by Lewis and Szynal after singles by Riley and Aulisio scored two more runs in the sixth to sew up the game. Textile vs. Vocational The Millmen hit heavily, registering thirteen safe blows including a double by Aulisio and a triple by Szynal to trounce the Vokes 16-2. Dick Lewis held the Green to four scattered blows and fanned twelve for his fourth straight triumph of the season. Textile vs. Becker College The Millmen ' s eighteen-game win streak was brought to an abrupt ending by the classy College nine. The final score was 14-4. Textile led briefly in the third inning when Greenough singled following Barry ' s single and Aulisio ' s double to score two runs. Becker scored seven runs in the fourth to stop all threats. The absence of Lewis and Jasionek ' s in- ability to play more than two innings coupled by terrible infielding on Textile ' s part didn ' t tend to help. Textile vs. Holy Family Holy Family humbled Textile, for the second straight game, in a ten inning battle which saw Carter pitching great ball for the younger boys. The Millmen went ahead in the first of the tenth by 2-1 but the high school boys reached Jasionek for two runs in the last half of that same inning to win. Textile vs. Vocational Textile again soundly trounced the trade school lads, this time by a 10-3 score. While Ralph Clark was holding the opposition to five hits his team-mates batted out twelve healthy singles, Al Ramsbotham getting three to lead the offensive. Dave and Joe Aulisio both got a single and a double to trail Ramsbotham. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page fifi it-two 1936 THE FABRICATOR Textile vs. Wentworth Institute In the usual close game held by these rivals Textile triumphed 3-2, breaking a 1-1 deadlock in the eighth with a two run rally without making a solitary hit. Wentworth made three hits off Lewis while Textile could register but two singles off Vargnani. Hannah, Boston catcher, and Greenough made the only solid hits of the day with the latter plus Dur- fee and D. Aulisio doing the scoring for Textile. Textile vs. Durfee Tech. Although out-hitting their opponents 13-6 New Bedford lost its third game of the season to the score of 7-6. Despite Jasionek ' s homer and single, Ramsbotham ' s double and two singles, and Dave Aulisio ' s three singles, to mention only half the hits made by the Millmen, Durfee edged out a win with the aid of some fine breaks on close decisions on the bases against the New Bedford runners. Cullen led Durfee with three hits and Dick Lewis was charged with his only loss of the year. Textile vs. Wentworth Institute The Millmen traveled to Boston and trimmed Wentworth for the second time in probably the wierdest game of the schedule. Trailing by four runs at one time and having to stage an uphill battle Textile climaxed some terrific hitting by scoring ten runs in the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings (five in the eighth) to a win by a 14-8 margin. The Tex lads made sixteen hits including a home run and three singles by D. Aulisio, a homer, triple and double by Jasionek, a triple by Leahy and a double by Joe Aulisio. Six hurlers faced the Millmen in the eighth when all runs were scored after two men were out and the bases clear. Vargnani hit a homer and single for Wentworth but charged with his second loss to the Millmen. COMMENTS We wonder why Jazzy Jasionek had such a hard time judging that high fly in the Becker game? Don ' t you love to see Ed Flynn circle under those short foul tips that no one ever catches? It is rumored that Coach Gourley is going to give Leahy a zero in C. Y. P. for every time that Bill socks one of those tremendous fouls in- to left. If those had been straight maybe Bill would have trimmed Dave Aulisio in the final batting averages, — MAYBE. Greenough ' s " one-and-a-half " over the spectator at the Alumni game would do credit to any gymnast even though the landing was a bit awk- ward, which only goes to prove that foul flies are elusive. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page fifty-three THE FABRICATOR 193 6 Dave Aulisio ' s .475 batting average was some hitting but he says its all in the spaghetti you eat. Larry Durfee, Al Ramsbotham, and Joe Aulisio showed up in great form during their first year out. All three crashed the " .300 " class with the willow, Joe and Al also being speedy on the paths. Szynal ' s chatter at second during the course of a game automatically qualifies him as a leading candidate for the " National Amateur Hogcall- ing Championship " . Our money is on Frank. We still think that Dick Lewis is faster on the base paths than Coach Gourley but would walk miles to see them race. For the perfect form picture, we present to you Leahy at third base (in action), but Durfee says there is no need to throw them to first in such a hurry. " Knobby " agrees and continues to burn them over to first. Well, we must get on to soccer, so Cheerio !

The boys acquit- ted themselves very credibly by winning nine, losing three, and tying one of the contests. Textile vs. Dean Academy Although minus the services of Al Ramsbotham, regular halfback, the Millmen got under way in grand style by trimming the Academy boys 5-0 in the season ' s curtain raiser. Norm Singleton, from his posi- tion at center half managed to lead the scoring for the day with two fine goals, being closely followed by Leahy, Kosiba, and Ko sera who tallied one each. Mello and " Big Joe " Dias played stellar games at their half back posts. Textile vs. Vocational In the usual hard fought struggle staged by these two bitter rivals NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page fifty-five THEFABRICATOR 1936 neither team was able to triumph, with the final score being 1-1 ; it was, incidently, the fourth tie of a like score between the two outfits in their last five clashes. Barber scored for Voke shortly after the opening whistle when he nodded in a nice pass from Barkers. This ended the scoring in the first stanza but Mickey Riley tied up the count just after the intermission when he beat Sykes with a beautiful shot from about 20 yards out. Bar- kers missed a victory for Voke as he dubbed up a penalty try just before the end of the game. Textile vs. Tabor Academy The Millmen visited Marion and came away with their second win by a 4-2 score. Ed Kosiba and " Pilky " Pilkington gave Textile a 2-0 lead in the first half but Tabor tied the count in the third quarter. As the last canto got under way " Bucky " Greenough slipped a pass to Tref Soucy, in front of the net, and the latter converted it into the winning score although Kosiba put the clash on the well known ice with his second goal a few moments later. Textile vs. Cranston High School Without getting much opposition from the smaller high school lads, the Tex lads scored an easy 3-0 win for their third triumph of the sea- son. Stan Kozera gave the Millmen a 1-0 lead at the half which was in- creased to 3-0, after the exchange of ends, on goals by Riley and Kosiba, the latter ' s score coming from the penalty spot. Cranston could do little with the usual fine defense exhibited by Textile. Textile vs. Bridgewater Teachers College Capitalizing on breaks early in the contest the New Bedford lads built up a 2-0 lead before the end of the first half, and aided by some great work on the part of Goalie Szulik in the last quarter particularly, won their fourth victory. Mike Riley scored early from scrimmage when he, along with Green- ough, Kosiba, and Soucy, ganged up on the opposing fullbacks following a misskick by one of them. The short range gave the Teacher ' s goalie no chance. Kosiba ' s penalty followed in the second quarter to clinch the contest and end the scoring. Textile vs. Harvard Junior Varsity Getting unexpected opposition from the Boston team, Textile had to mine from behind in the closing moments to score a narrow 3-2 win. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL i ' ikji fifty-six 1936 THE FABRICATOR " Big " Joe Dias and Norm Singleton combined their efforts to trim Harv- ard almost single-handed, the two being directly responsible for all three goals. Joe scored two, including the winning one which came from Sing- leton ' s excellent corner kick, and Norm tallied the other in a solo effort. Singleton starred throughout the afternoon for Textile on both of- fense and defense. Textile vs. Durfee Tech. Textile ' s arch rivals handed the Millmen their first defeat of the season at Fall River by a 1-0 score. The counter came just before the end of the game on a fine shot by Harrington, center forward, with Szulik having no chance to save the shot. Textile vs. Durfee Tech. A week later the New Bedford outfit, on their own field trounced the visiting outfit soundly, 3-0, to make up fully for their previous 1-0 defeat by the Durfeeites. Riley, Singleton, and Fior (accidental) ac- counted for the goals. This was probably the best played game of the season on the part of our team with Singleton and Ramsbotham playing excellent defensive games. Mickey Riley played an excellent game offensively. Textile vs. Cranston High School Playing on Cranston ' s " two by four " field handicapped the visiting Textile aggregation no little bit and although the Millmen gained a 1-0 lead at the intermission Cranston came right back in the second and quickly assumed a 2-1 advantage, while mixing things up considerably. That is where they made their mistake for the Millmen woke up to score three quick goals, completely stunning Cranston and just about nullify- ing the latter ' s offense. Eddie Kosiba scored three goals to net the scoring honors for the day. He tallied the first two for the Millmen with Dick Barry netting the deciding counter just before Kosiba ' s final score. It was the seventh win of the season for Textile. Textile vs. Durfee Tech. The Fall River jinx again went to work and Durfee triumphed by 2-1 in the rubber game of the season ' s series. Greenough gave Textile a 1-0 lead shortly after the opening gong but Durfee tied things up midway through the first half. The score NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page fifty-seven THEFABRICATOR 1936 stood 1-1 until five minutes before the end when Bill Eagan poked one past Szulik from a scrimmage in front of the goal mouth. Textile vs. Vocational For the first and only time during the season Textile dropped their second consecutive game, this time to Voke, 3-0. It was the worst de- feat of the season. Barber, high scoring Voke center forward, lead the Green with two goals, one in each half. Hardman scored the third goal in the final half. Vocational had the best of the play and truly deserved to win. Textile vs. Thibodeau Business College Playing on a frozen surface and in freezing temperature, Textile broke a Fall River jinx of three years ' standing by edging Thibodeau 1-0. The goal came from the boot of Bucky Greenough, with but a few min- utes left to play, as the result of k pass from Riley. The score insured the eighth Textile victory of the season. Textile vs. Thibodeau Business College A week later at Buttonwood the Millmen duplicated their first win over Thibodeau with Kosiba in the starring role on this occasion. After a scoreless first half, Eddie tallied the only goal of the struggle in the last half as he scored from close in following some nice dribbling. It was Ray Szulik ' s work between the uprights in the closing moments of play that kept the lead, however. He stopped shot after shot in a fine exhibition. This win was an appropriate ending to a successful soccer season which may possibly be the last in the history of the school if football is successfully reintroduced in the school next year. COMMENTS Prizes — Catcher ' s cage to Mickey Riley. The scrappy diminutive center forward made stopping the ball with one ' s face a regular if not popular pastime. If Mike doesn ' t want it, Soucy gets second choice. Stan Koczera — combination nose guard and handkerchief. In the Thibodeau game at Fall River, Stan ' s schnozzola looked like a red traffic light. Bucky Greenough — face cloth, for the black-and-white mud pack re- ceived in the Voke game.

Ed Kosiba (high scorer) — a tee to set ' em up on plus a little more help on the left wing. Dave Aulisio — a couple of unscored goals. Bill Leahy — a riot squad for the games in Fall River. " Joe " Mello — Norm Singleton ' s drive. Al Ramsbotham — a pair of brand new soccer shoes.

Norm Singleton — Congratulations for being the outstanding player. TEAM — more opposition like Dean and more trips to the same. Aulisio, Barry, Leahy, Soucy, Szulik, and Greenough played their last game for Textile. They will be graduated in June. Dave, Bill, and Ray have been regulars for three years.

Textile vs. Alumni The Millmen supposedly with some of the best material in years, in- cluding a veteran starting line upon hand, ran rampant over the grads to open the season with a 39-18 victory. Although Joe Aulisio did not start the game for the school team, he dropped in eleven points to lead the scorers for the night. Ed Kosiba, Al Ramsbotham, and Dave Aulisio each tallied eight points which seems to point to a combination this season. The Alumni tried hard but simply could not give the well conditioned Varsity any serious trouble. The Textile Seconds trimmed the Alumni Seconds 29-14. Textile vs. Rhode Island College of Education For the second straight game the Millmen were led by the younger Aulisio who did some shooting that was bordered on the sensational scored twelve points in the last two quarters and fourteen in the entire contest. Ramsbotham was close behind with nine points. NEW BEDFORD Page sixty TEXTILE SCHOOL 1936 THE FABRICATOR Incidently, after being held to eleven points in the first half by the college boys, Textile opened up and scored a 35-21 win. The second team won its second straight by trimming the Westing- house Reserves 23-8. Textile vs. Durfee Textile Our lads made it three in a row when they traveled to Fall River to give Durfee Textile a nice 34-23 trimming. Dave Aulisio ran wild with nineteen points from his guard position, while Ed Kosiba helped out considerably with eleven counters. Surprisingly enough, Al Ramsbotham and Joe Aulisio failed to tally a point during the entire evening. The New Bedfordites held only a 15-12 lead at the intermission but piled up the points at the last periods. The New Bedford Textile Seconds won 37-4. Textile vs. Naval Training Station The Sailors handed the Tex lads their first defeat of the season to the tune of 36-22. This was mostly due to a 14-3 lead assumed by the Newporters at the end of the first quarter. Textile never was able to overcome that margin and although they outscored the home team in the second half it was all in vain. Strange to the Newport floor and poor in their shooting cost Tex- tile the game although this all went toward allowing their opponents to outplay them. Textile vs. Vocational Back on their home floor Textile polished off the Vokes in a 49-18 massacre. Dave Aulisio with eighteen points, Ed George with fifteen, and Ed Kosiba with thirteen lead the Millmen in their scoring spree. Coach Szulik, who had been having considerable trouble finding a consistent center, was given some encouragement by the performance of George. The seconds won again 27-24. Textile vs. Becker College Expecting some of the best opposition of the schedule the Textilites played excellent basketball to turn back the highly touted visitors by a 40-23 score. The Millmen played the best game displayed by them so far this year and, with George shooting some great baskets from his guard posi- tion, to lead the scorers with thirteen points, assumed a 24-10 lead at the half and were never headed. Samko, Worcester center, who scored 4.4 points against Textile in two games was well taken care of by Szulik at NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page sixty-one THEFABRICATOR 1936 the center. In fact all the Millmen were at their top form and simply unbeatable. Dave and Joe Aulisio shared seventeen points between them, Dave getting the extra one. The Textile seconds won their fifth straight by edging the High Hat- ters 25-24 in a ragged game. Jack Ryan scored the winning basket with only three seconds left to play. Textile vs. Thibodeau Business College Textile scored its sixth victory of the season by squelching the Thi- bodeau Business College five by a 54-26 score. Szulik, Ryan, and Dave Aulisio each tallied ten points while Joe Aulisio led the pack with eleven counters, as the Millmen assumed a 25-9 half time lead. The score at the end of the opening session was 11-9 but the Fall River lads were held scoreless in the second period by some great guarding by the Textile. The Textile Seconds defeated the Murphy Club Reserves 31-13 in the preliminary for their sixth win. Textile vs. Naval Training Station In one of the best games of the schedule thus far Textile avenged its only defeat by sinking the navy boys 39-23. Dave Aulisio took the scoring honors with sixteen points but Kosiba and George stood out fully as much for the home by virtue of their great games at the guard positions while dropping in nine points apiece at the same time. Textile jumped into a 9-5 lead at the opening quarter and was never headed as the Sailors failed to show the same brand of shooting as on their own floor. The local Seconds beat the Westport Indies 26-15 in the opener. Textile vs. Holy Family After displaying some great basketball in the previous games the Millmen bagged down in no uncertain manner to barely edge the high school boys 33-28 in a last period rally. The score was tied with only six minutes to play but the Aulisio brothers dropped in baskets to pull the contest out of the fire. Textile led all the way into the final canto when the hard working Parochials took advantage of considerable lax play on the part of Textile to suddenly forge into a tie for the lead. The Millmen immediately got panicky and along with the dogged play of Holy Family, just man- aged to nose out their eighth win. Dave Aulisio caged thirteen points to take the evening ' s honors. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page sixty-two 193 6 THE FABRICATOR Textile vs. Bryant College The crack Providence business college five handed the New Bedford- ites their second defeat of the season as Textile, after coming to within two points of a tie score late in the third stanza, failed to cope with the last period surge of the home forces and dropped a 27-19 verdict. Textile was behind 16-2 at one time in the second period and this disadvantage proved too big a one to overcome. Ray Szulik ' s six points was high for his team as Textile suffered its smallest scoring night of its entire schedule. Textile vs. Vocational Scoring ten points in each of the last three periods Textile combined them with a 6-4 first quarter lead to score a 36-20 triumph over Voke, to repeat an earlier season win. Although the home team was off in its shooting, Vocational never stood a chance against their more experienced foes. The Textile scor- ing was well divided and ranged from D. Aulisio ' s ten points down Ryan ' s sole foul basket, with everybody figuring in the point getting. It was the Textile varsity ' s ninth win. In the preliminary game the Textile Seconds also repeated their first win over the Green seconds, meanwhile scoring their ninth victory. The final score was 33-27. Textile vs. Thibodeau ' s Business College Our lads made it ten wins and two defeats for the season by travel- ing to the Fall River Y. M. C. A. and trimming the Thibodeau five of that city by a 41-34 score. Textile was led to victory by the free scoring ways of George, Kos- iba, and Dave Aulisio who scored eight, twelve, and fifteen points re- spectively. The first was nip and tuck as Textile emerged out in front by 22-21. At the end of the third period the score was 30-29 still in favor of the visitors but in the final session the New Bedford team outscored their rivals by six counters to clinch the contest. Textile vs. Durfee Textile D. Aulisio ' s seventeen points gave New Bedford its second win in as many nights as Textile trimmed its Durfee rival 29-14 on the New Bed- ford gym floor. It was Durfee ' s second defeat of the season at the local ' s hands. Although there was not a great deal of scoring Durfee was never in sight of its opponents and trailed 13-3 at half time. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page sixty-three THE F A B R I C ATOR 193 6 The local Seconds outscored the Durfee Reserves to register their tenth straight win. Textile vs. Dean Academy Textile dropped its third game of the season by losing to the Acad- emy boys 33-28 in a close contest that ' was a battle right up to the final whistle. The Millmen led at the first quarter 12-4, and 17-15 at the half but faded after the intermission to lose the game. The team played a credit- able brand of ball but failure to make good its foul shots was one of the main reasons for the loss. Dean failed to sink as many field goals but dropped in too many free throws from a Textile viewpoint, and won out. Textile vs. Becker The Millmen journeyed to Worcester and received a thorough beat- ing at the hands of the State boys led by Samko. The latter, Becker ' s lanky center, scored seventeen points which totalled along side his mates ' frequent scores accounted for the 51-30 Textile loss. It was the worst loss of the year. D. Aulisio played a fine game for the visitors and scored eleven points up to the time he was banished in the fourth quarter. Textile vs. Rhode Island State College of Education With 32 consecutive past half points featuring Textile ' s most over- whelming success of the season, the Millmen trounced the Providence outfit by the large margin of a 64-22 score. Dave Aulisio gained scoring honors by virtue of his 17 points and was ably helped out by the remaining nine Textile players who all fig- ured in the scoring. Ramsbotham was second highest scorer with nine points. The Millmen were never in danger and led from the outset. Textile vs. Bryant College Defeated in the first battle at Providence, Textile gained one of its sweetest revenges of the season by edging the fast College five 28-23 in a close scrap that kept a home crowd thrilled throughout. The quarter scores attest to a close game and Textile ' s margin at the finish was its largest of the conflict. Textile led at the initial canto 9-8 and 18-14 at the half. In the third session Bryant forged to within one point, 20-19 and for a while in the final period tied the score at 22-22 but Textile rallied to win. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page sixty-four 1936 THEFABRICATOR Kosiba and Ryan at guard starred for the Millmen both on the of- fense and defense while Aulisio contributed twelve points to his team ' s cause. Textile vs. Holy Family High Al Ramsbotham conducted Textile ' s fine season to a victorious end by snapping out of a scoring slump with thirteen points. Textile beat the high school lads 32-15 for its fourteenth win as against four defeats. FOOTNOTES Dave Aulisio ended the season with 189 points with Ed Kosiba in runnerup position with 97 points to his credit. This was remarkable in that Ed played the entire season at guard; his 25 foul baskets also led in that department. When Mike Riley took a shot at his own basket in the Voke game, which, incidentally was won by the Textile Seconds with three points lee- way, he certainly let himself in for a lot of kidding. Mike ' s good nature made everything all right though, and the diminutive forward was round- ly cheered every time he scored a point. Russ Carroll and Bucky Greenough, who took care of Textile ' s scor- ing and publicity respectively got so tired of hearing Larry Durfee tell- ing what a clean player he was that they induced Ross Langlois to expell the reserve guard from the Holy Family game and was Larry peeved — when he took a look on the reserve bench. When Vera Hillman went out on four fouls in the final game of the season the second team contest had to be halted until another member o f Textile ' s nonchalant reserves was separated from the group horseplaying in the locker room and put into service. The Seconds took their basketball and their pleasure together but their undefeated record shows that the boys were plugging for all they were worth while in the game. At the same time, the Varsity gathered itself one of the finest rec- ords of recent teams representing the school as it went through the season undefeated on its home floor. All the boys showed fine spirit and played fine ball, fully deserving the excellent opinions expressed in their behalf. The final records show : won 14, lost 4. And no team on the list de- feated Textile twice. NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL Page sixty-five THE FABRICATOR 1936 TENNIS 19$ § HU.NDER the tutelage of Coach Malcolm H. Richardson the tennis as- pirants enjoyed their season immensely although they managed to win only four of their matches. Two of these wins came in the last four matches, however, as the boys showed some very good tennis. Wins over Durfee Textile and New Bedford High were the highlights of the season. The latter win was especially sweet as it revenged a 6-0 defeat. The team composed of Al Tripp, Ralph Clark, Joe Crowley, Al Frost, Norm Donninger, Mark Knowlton, and Elmer Diggle.
