During the closing years of the nineteenth century, a group of far-sighted and energetic citizens of New Bedford foresaw the part that city was to play in the textile industry. They realized that in order for New Bedford to attain highest quality and workmanship in textile manufacture, trained men would be required. Thus was born the idea for a textile school; a school capable of training young men and women in all branches of the textile industry; men and women who would raise New Bedford to the ultimate in textile achievement. Accordingly, the Massachusetts State Legislature, under the Acts of 1895, Chapter 475, created a board of fifteen members whose duty it was to incorporate and establish the New Bedford Textile School. Toward this end, the City of New Bedford, and the State of Massachusetts each appropriated $25,000 to be used in establishing the school. From this rather humble beginning grew the institution which today is known and respected throughout the world. On October 14, 1899, the school was formally dedicated and opened for instruction. The first enrollment consisted of eleven day students and 183 night students. Each year saw such an increase in enrollment that enlargement of the school became imperative. Accordingly, the three story building was extended to the end line of Maxfield Street to provide for new courses. Under the guidance of Mr. William E. Hatch who was appointed its first principal in 1904, the school was expanded to accommodate the increased enrollment. Today the school is regarded as the best in this section of the country, with over 100,000 square feet of floor space and equipment in excess of $275,000. At the outset, the school was established to teach cotton manufacturing and all its phases, but it naturally followed that a chemistry and a mechanical department should be added. There are two fine chemistry laboratories with various types of finishing equipment; also a fine mechanical department with a machine shop and drafting rooms. The C. Y. P. and Weaving departments are unexcelled in equipment and supervision, while the Rayon and Testing departments are rapidly making a name for themselves in the textile world. The Design department offers full instruction in design and analysis of all types of fabrics, while in the Knitting department full instruction is offered to those interested. In 1936 Mr. George Walker was appointed principal. Under his expert supervision New Bedford Textile School will continue to play a leading role in producing trained men and women for the textile industry. i George Walker Principal The Faculty Mr. Thomas H.

RAMALHO President ALBERT MELLOR Vice-President Secretary- Treasurer Fabricator, ' 38 12 JAMES H. ARMITAGE New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical Jimmy can waste more time and yet accomplish more, both in shop and in drafting, than anyone in the class. Whatever he attempts to do in the mechanical field will surely lead to success. FLOYD L. ASHWORTH New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical Many a dull drafting class has suddenly assumed brighter proportions when " Ashie " fancied himself a trap drummer in a swing band. Notwithstanding, Floyd is a hard worker, and has also carried the Textile colors on the athletic field. President 1; Dance Committee 1, 2; Baseball 1, 2; Basketball 1, 2; Soccer 1. ARNOLD C. ASPDEN Fairhaven, Mass. Chemistry Phi Psi Blessed with blond hair and twinkling blue eyes, " Arnie " proves the truth of the old adage, " he who speaks no evil fears no evil. " Has made a daily dash across the bridge for three years. Holds an attendance record for this remark able feat. Swings a mean tennis racquet which only en hances his charm for Mary, Susie, Barbara, Jean, etc.. etc Tennis 2, 3, Mgr. 3; Dance Committee; Business Mgr. Fabricator. FRANK ASPIN New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical " Gentleman and scholar. " That is what Frank calls everyone else, but it describes him perfectly. He is also one of the most popular members of the class as a glance at his list of activities will show " . Vice President 1, Treasurer 2; Dance Committee 1, 2; Golf 1, 2; Soccer 1. 13 Fabricator, ' 38 THOMAS P. BARRY New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi Red-headed Tom disproves the saying that red hair and a fiery temper go together. His temper is very conspicuous by its absence. A baseball luminary, he has led the Textile sluggers in the home run department for the past two seasons. Does imitations of " Baby Snooks " and " Charlie McCarthy " on certain occasions. Treasurer 1; Baseball 1, 2, 3; Basketball 1; Advertising Manager Fabricator. FRANK M. BARYLSKI New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical One of the few electricians Mr. Foster has turned out, he is equally as smart in shop and drafting. Genial Frank certainly looks like a future " big leaguer " in the game of successful living. CHRISTOPHER A. BEST New Bedford, Mass. General Phi Psi " Stew " is a quiet, well mannered chap who seems to pos- sess that which most of us lack — culture. His life-like sketches of the fairer sex are greatly appreciated during most every lecture, but we are very much puzzled as to how he ever came to be called " Stew " . CHARLES E. BLOSSOM New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi " Bud ' s " surprising, and sometimes upsetting bits of in- formation on any and all subjects up for discussion, have placed him in the position of being both an amateur politician and an agitator at the same time. The course of any argument usually depends upon his point of view. Plays saxophone and clarinet in a dance band, and is recognized as an authority on " swing " music. Literary Editor Fabricator; Ring Committee. Fabricator. ' 38 14 HORMIDAS R. BOUCHER New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical " Bushy " is one of the youngest and smallest members of the class. He is known as the " midget powerhouse " whose mischievous ways have established him deeply in our memories. FRANCIS P. CARNEY New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical Many are the times we have been held spellbound as Magician Carney performed a few sleight-of-hand tricks right before our eyes. A quiet, hard working fellow whom we are predicting someday will be a professional magician. How about a free pass Frank? ROBERT CLARKE New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical " Clarky " is a quiet, hardworking fellow who possesses a rare creative ability. He designed, built, and operates a Baby Whale outboard motorboat. His likeness to Charles Laughton, the cinema star, is very noticeable and often commented upon. ALICE MARGARET CUMMINGS Buffalo, N . Y. Special We don ' t know much about Margaret, as she has only been in school for a year. Nevertheless she has proven to be cheerful and good natured. and we certainly wish her the best of luck in her life ' s work. 15 Fabricator, , 38 1= HENRY M. CURRY New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry The lad with the dancing feet and eyes, he alone knows the secret of solving the most elusive of chemical problems to the accompaniment of a " swing " band. Has achieved some sort of a record for successive attendances at a cer- tain Wednesday night dance. The possession of unlimited vitality rounds out and supports Henry and his nightly schedule. Chaiiman Dance Committee 3; Prom Committee 3. CHARLES DeMELLO New Bedford, Mass. Special Charlie is one of the quiet members of the class. Very seldom seen or heard, he can usually be found in the testing lab wondering what is on the slide under his microscope. ROMEO W. DESORCY Acushnet, Mass. Mechanical A swashbuckling buckeroo who believes in burning the candle at both ends and fortunately never gets burnt. He often spins quite a yarn to the class about his lathe at home — we wonder. LOUIS L. GAGNON New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi Generally found in the middle of every argument up- holding the minority opinion. Was instrumental in organ- izing a local Social Justice Union. An avid student of American History, but violently opposes the country ' s bank- ing system. Has the courage of his own convictions, and sways you by the force of his argument. Tennis 2. Fabricator. ' 38 16 ROBERT N. GOLUB Fall River, Mass. Chemistry Sigma Phi Tau One of the most prolific of writers, he shows such interest that all other tasks are subordinated. Also the moving spirit behind all debating activities and, incidentally, the publicity chief of the school. During the past summer he extolled the virtues of a photographic studio from house to house. Noted for his terrific " gift of gab " . Chairman Dance Committee 3; Debating 2, 3, Mgr. 3: Assistant Business Manager Fabricator. EUGENE GULA New Bedford, Mass. Rayon Preparation Gene is an example of what a true sport is. Plays base- ball and soccer and excels in both. Always passes things off with a wide smile. Also specializes in taking photo- micrographs in which our Gene is really outstanding. Soccer 1, 2; Baseball 1, 2. DONALD R. GURNEY New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical Dresses like a page out of Esquire. A real true friend with a load of personality and a winning smile. Best of luck " Don " . DEXTER S. HORVITZ New Bedford, Mass. Sigma Phi Tau General " Dex " serves the General Class in the capacity of reference library. His notebooks are always in demand just before exams. A sunny disposition coupled with an " ear to ear " grin, which incidentally helps to brighten up every lecture, will help assure Dexter of a successful career. Secretary 1; Dance Committee 1, 2, 3; Chairman Ring Committee. 17 Fabricator, ' 38 BENJAMIN F. HOWE New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry At an early age he realized the value of making a hobby into a paying proposition. Is now a professional photo- grapher of no mean ability. Did all the candid and special effects photos in the book. Plans to study ballistics as an aid to furthering his profession. EDWARD J. HUDECEK New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi Mighty fisherman. Mighty Hunter. Connoisseur of rare pictures and stories. Demon photographer with an eye toward the unique. An apt student of Paul Bunyan, and a veritable treasury of facts and figures. Has never been known to adopt a defeatist attitude. Prom Committee 3. EDWARD IZMIRIAN New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Tall, dark, and almost handsome, with a " remarkable ability for getting rhythm out of anything from a reagent bottle to a twenty gallon dye vat. Won an amateur con- test on his ocarina (commonly called " sweet pertater " ), and has played command performances at practically all Textile dances. If chemical education fails to click, should be able to land a job as utility man in a dance orchestra. Dance Committee 2, 3; Humor Editor Fabricator. DEXTER W. JOHNSON New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical Textile has changed Dexter into a hard working, and well liked fellow. Being the object of many good-natured jibes, he can give as well as take. Our tall blond friend is bound to succeed as determination to progress is certainly among his fine characteristics. Fabricator, ' 38 18 JOHN B. KIELBASA New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical John is a quiet chap and easy to get along with, but often " still waters run deep. " In the fall, Johnny ' s attention turns to football, as he quarterbacks one of our local gridiron teams. We wish you many touchdowns in the game of living, John. GEORGE A. KOVAR New Bedford, Mass. General Delta Kappa Phi " Soldier-Boy " Kovar has found himself at last since he joined the National Guard. At least someone appreciates his talent for making guns. George believes in the old adage " a question asked is knowledge gained " , and he really puts this into practice. The class has had quite a number of laughs out of " Bohunk " as he goes about finding out things in his own inimitable way. HARRY E. KRIG Dartmouth, Mass. Mechanical Harry is a tall, blue-eyed blond who has grown up right before our eyes. He studies hard, and is rewarded with very desirable marks which all of us try for but seldom attain. In addition to his academic success, Harry was No. 1 man on our struggling golf team which sprang into existence during the past year. Golf 1, 2. HERMAN J. LORD New Bedford, Mass. Rayon Preparation Herman is among the tall silent members of the class. His chief hobby is the study of photography, in which subject he is considered somewhat of an expert. Also when it comes to taking photo-micrographs, Herman has few peers. 19 Fabricator, 38 ALBERT MELLOR New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical Delta Kappa Phi " Al " , a very well liked chap, has worked hard during his stay at Textile, and we sincerely believe that he will be rewarded for his earnest endeavors. The fact that he is our class Vice-President attests to his ability and popularity. Vice President 2; Dance Committee 2; Ring Com- mittee. NORMAND L. MENARD New Bedford, Mass. Phi Psi Mechanical Normand is a likeable chap who has acquired the nick- name of " Speed " during his stay at Textile. We know that with his determination, combined with an ability to understand mechanical appliances, Normand will gain success. HERMAN J. MILLER Marthas Vineyard, Mass. Chemistry Sigma Phi Tau A little on the chubby side, with a ready smile and sunny disposition. Used to work in a pawn shop, so has the ability to judge values. One of the few intelligent enough not to enter into the usual Friday afternoon jamboree. During the summer sells fruits and vegetables to Marthas Vineyard ' s elite. Has worked hard and deserves much credit for this publication. Editor-in-Chief Fabricator. FRANK A. NIEC New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical Small, quiet, and almost inconspicuous, Frank neverthe- less has worked hard to acquire that knowledge which he considers important. With steam and electricity taking up most of his time, Frank will surely win any reward of- fered for hard work. Fabricator, ' 38 20 Fabricator, ' 38 ROBERT A. POTTER New Bedford, Mass. General " Bob " was most certainly cut out to be a cartoonist. In addition to drawing caricatures of instructors and students, he always manages to liven up the class by his humorous asides and continual — humming? He is also very demo- cratic, and will seldom turn down an offer to share some- one else ' s lunch or homework. Dance Committee 1, 2, 3; Golf 2, 3; Art Editor Fabricator. FERDINAND W. PRYZBYLA New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical Easy to make friends with and a regular fellow, Fred is one who will succeed in his chosen field. He is a willing worker and an active participant in sports. His lack of stature did not in any way detract from his natural ability. Baseball 1, 2; Basketball 1, 2. ARNOLD F. RAMALHO New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi Smiling and affable, yet very sensible, " Arnie " im- mediately took up the lead in class and fraternal activi- ties. What is more important, he held it all the way through. He has a sort of competence about him that dispels any doubt as to his ability to successfully complete any task entrusted to him. President 3; Dance Committee 2. MITCHELL P. RIHBANY New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical " Mike " is the man about town of the Mechanical Course. His actions, while describing the adventures he often under- takes, are usually enjoyed by the entire class. 21 Fabricator, ' 38 WKSm - JOHN J. RYAN New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi Patrick is our favorite axis around which all class arguments flow. A rugged " individualist " , he stands for his point of view in face of all logical arguments to the contrary. Nevertheless, his disarming smile cultivates few enemies and countless friends. A star on the baseball diamond, he is known under the name of " slugger " . Baseball 1, 2, 3; Basketball 1, 2; Sports Editor Fabricator. SIDNEY G. SMITH New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Phi Psi Stands as one of our country ' s staunchest patriots, glory- ing in its military aspects. However, milder traits of character are paramount as evinced by his patience with tedious analytical procedures and unavoidable though negative results. Incidentally, he also has a lady-friend. Prom Committee 3. ZYGMUND E. SOJKA New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical " Ziggie " is a chap with a wide smile and a winning personality. A field representative of a well-known brush company, he will sell you anything from toothbrush to a vacuum cleaner. NATHANIEL STETSON New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry The harmony man of that incomparable ocarina duet combine of Izmirian and Stetson. Also flogs out a mean clarinet. Admittedly the A-l student of the class, his specialty is being able to work amid the general hubbub of a Friday afternoon in the lab. President 1; Treasurer 2; Dance Committee 2. Fabricator, ' 38 22 STANLEY P. SWISZCZ New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical " Tiny " is quite a boy, standing well over 6 ' 6 " . He is also the class strong man, and we think those nightly trips to the Y. M. C. A. must have helped. Possessed with a rare sense of dry humor and bubbling over with good nature, he is bound to be a big success. EUNICE C. SYLVIA Falmouth, Mass. Special From Cape Cod came Eunice to learn the ins and outs of the Textile business. Being the only girl in the class last year, she soon proved her ability to take wisecracks and return them in kind. A good sport, and a willing worker, Eunice should make a name for herself in the testing game. Secretary 1, 2; Dance Committee 1, 2. GEORGE A. TRIPP New Bedford, Mass. Mechanical A small package and full of vitality, he is persistently amusing with his " drug store " humor. George will be well remembered for lis constant winning of raffles con- ducted by none other than himself. flL ' W. FREDERICK A. WALKER New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi Fred expresses the modern competitive businessman of today, minus the competition. Sells candy and snacks as a sideline. Feels quite at ease with one eye in an organic book and the other on credit lists. Has become indispens- able on various committees because, HE HAS A CAR. Dance Committee 2, 3. 23 Fabricator, ' 38 FRANCIS H. WALSH New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi Fran has a sort of calm disposition which no one can seem to ruffle. Also qualifies as the electrician of the class. Worked in the General Electric Laboratories in Cleveland last summer. Enjoys the enviable reputation of having a steady girl-friend to whom he really is faithful. Baseball Manager 2; Debating 2, 3; Chairman Prom Committee 3. JOHN W. WHALLEY New Bedford, Mass. Rayon Preparation John is a quiet, conservative chap who is Mr. Fawcett ' s right hand man. Enjoys his daily ride to school with an instructor who hails from Acushnet. Greatest joy is when he is on the basketball floor. Basketball 1, 2; Soccer 2; Baseball 1, 2; Tennis 1. LEOPOLD J. WINIARSKI New Bedford, Mass. Chemistry Delta Kappa Phi Not exactly the shy retiring type, his opinion on any subject is freely given. Will bet on practically anything if given odds. Whenever Leo offers odds it ' s almost certain to be a sure thing. He is also a star athlete as a glance below will show. Baseball 1, 2, 3; Basketball 1, 2, 3; Golf 2, 3; Assistant Advertising Manager Fabricator. THEODORE J. ZUBRZYCKI Bridgewater, Mass. Mechanical A hard-working chap who entered our ranks a stranger but will leave as a friend. Has made a daily trek from Bridgewater for which feat he deserves much credit. Has also held high the Textile colors on the field of sports. Baseball 1, 2; Basketball 1, 2; Soccer 1, 2. Fabricator. ' 38 24 Alumni Association r I HE alumni association of the New Bedford Textile School congratulates the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-eight. It is our wish that each and every one of you find success and happiness in your work. Do not deceive yourselves that yours is a royal road ahead. Rather be proud that you have educated yourselves to surmount most difficulties as you meet them. It is the hope of the alumni that you will profit by these experiences in attaining greater heights. Today, in every office, shop, store, and factory, there is a constant weeding out process going on. Employers are constantly sending away men who have shown their incapacity to further the interests of the business, and others are being taken on. No matter how good times are, this sorting continues, but if limes are hard and work is scarce, the sorting is finer. Self interest prompts every employer to keep only the best. You are now equipped with the education that makes you one of the best. Do not neglect it. Go after your first job with enthusiasm and self-confidence, and when you get it, hold it with initiative, energy, loyalty, and willingness to learn. If you make a mistake, admit it frankly; employers admire candor from their workers. If you find others advance faster than you, do not become discouraged and do not blame it on the system — search yourself for the reason, and when you find it, correct it. From the vantage point gained after three years of successful effort, we ask that you halt for a moment to gaze backward along the trail whereon you have met much that was pleasant and much that should remain highly valued to you. The alumni offer you the opportunity to continue these pleasant associations of the past three years by becoming a member of their society. During the past year, our organization has started a drive for an increase in mem- bership, and we sincerely hope that the entire Class of 1938 will join our association. Edward L. Murphy, Jr., President N.B.T.S. Alumni 1937-38. 25 Fabricator, ' 38 Class History One thing at least is certain — this life flies. — Rubaiyat When we, as green little Freshmen, entered the portals of the New Bedford Textile School on that bright September morn in 1935, we soon learned another axiom, not a philosophical gem by Khayyam but a concise reflection, the product of experience — one thing more is certain — our money flies, but we were, and we realize it now, in no position to begrudge the flight of our money through that iron cage for its boun- tiful return was our education, the foundation upon which the material success of our future lives will be built. Little did we realize then, that our three years would fly by so quickly and that in this short time we would change from awkward students to self-confident, eager young men and women so well versed in the arts and sciences of the textile world as to enable us to work our way to the key positions of our chosen profession, if that is what destiny holds in store for us. Let us now turn back the pages of our memory book and live again through that trying, yet delightful, period of orientation, so common to students entering a strange institution amidst a group of unfamiliar fellow pupils. There was the constant oppor- tunity to make new friends, the continued absentmindedness which led one astray into the wrong buildings, the open-mouthed astonishment as we were continually finding new types and kinds of textile machinery, the likes of which we never knew existed. The constant effort to remember where to go and at what time and the over- powering fear of being one second tardy and getting docked 50%. Thusly, we groped around until we were acclimated to conditions. When we thought that we had become well enough acquainted, we took upon our- selves the duty of electing our representatives. We chose Nathaniel Stetson, Presi- dent; John Misiasik, Vice President; Thomas Barry, Treasurer; Madeleine Robinson, Secretary. These officers proved themselves to be very capable and deserving of their positions of trust. Following elections, came the time when we pledged ourselves to the several fraternities, and suffered the ag onies of the initiates, but we made a firm resolution to even things up in future years, which we did. However, all was not play and we had many occasions to use that grey matter so preciously guarded in our younger days. We met the mid-year and final exams and took them all in our stride before we hit the trail toward an enjoyable summer ' s vacation. When we again assembled before the cashier ' s cage in September of 1936, we found that our class had been enlarged by a group of embryonic machinists. We again went through an election campaign, the ultimate victors being Harry Avila, President; John Gaughan, Vice President; Nathaniel Stetson, Treasurer; and Hazel Levy, Secretary. This year we got started off on the right foot socially and ran sev- eral dances at which we made the usual social error of getting on to the wrong feet as young men will do. We ran our first dance solely on a lot of nerve and a little Fabricator, ' 38 26 borrowed capital, but at the end of the year we loudly applauded Nat Stetson as he announced that we were safely entrenched on the right side of the ledger. In our second year the work piled up and weeks seemingly shortened to days and months to weeks and we were once more scanning the " Help Wanted " columns in search of summer employment. In the fall of ' 37 we entered school with the reserve, dignity, and aloofness so characteristic of seniors. Our class officers for this all important year were Arnold Ramalho, President; John Gaughan, Vice President; Frank Aspin, Treasurer; and Eunice Sylvia, Secretary. Later in the year we elected Albert Mellor to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of John Gaughan. During the course of this year we also lost one of our best-liked students, Albert Louie, who was forced to return to his home in Seattle because of illness. We also elected our Fabricator Staff and several committees were appointed to take care of such necessities as dances, prom, rings, and the other things so indispensable to the life of a senior. The several athletic coaches will certainly have heavy hearts when they see their star athletes and the mainstays of the Textile teams march off the stage, diploma in hand, never again to return to the field of sports in a Tech uniform to fight for the honor and glory of what is now our Alma Mater. Such stalwarts will be lost as Gula, Barry, Winiarski, Aspin, Ashworth, Aspden, Gagnon, Ryan, Rihbany, Zubricki, Presbyla, Krig, Wally, and Gourley ' s invaluable assistant, Walsh. Also lost down the sheepskin trail, to the newest organization, the Debating Team, are Golub and Walsh. It seemed but a few weeks after our Christmas recess when we started boning for our final exams. Then, the real thrill of a lifetime, you have passed and are eligible to receive that coveted diploma, the visible reward of effort and application to your studies. As we approached the month of May the boys became a group of Silas Marners scrimping and saving for that eventful prom which was but a few days removed. The day or rather the night came and there among a veritable sea of winsome lasses the class of 1938 held forth to frolic for the last time as students of the same school. Then, as we filed slowly across the stage and were presented with our diplomas by the Honorable Ernest L. Robitaille, we suddenly realized for the first time what a great debt we owed to our Principal and instructors for their patience, perseverance, and understanding, and we resolved that by our good work in the future we shall attempt to repay them for their effort. Farewell, a word that must be and hath been — • A sound that makes us linger — yet, Farewell. Byron 27 Fabricator, ' 38 3tt Ulnttflnam We, the graduating class, with heartfelt sorrow dedicate this page to the memory of ALBERT LOUIE June 1916 - April 5, 1938 and ROGER LUMBARD November 1920 - November 12, 1937 During their stay at Textile, both Albert and Roger endeared themselves to us, and we are bestowing this symbol of affection in their memory. Fabricator, ' 38 28 Unci erciasses Freshman Chemistry TNTRODUCING the Freshman Chem- istry Class, a group of well-man- nered young men who we know will make the school proud of them some day. Neil Besse — Neil is earnest and able in all that he does and is a fellow who we are glad to call friend. Edward Simpson — Quiet and thought- ful, Eddie is one who inspires confi- dence, and who will some day be a success in his chosen field. Felix Buba — If you want to be popu- lar with the opposite sex, you have to be blond. Felix is a shining example of this fact. Carl Carlin — Carl generally doesn ' t have much to say, but when he does say something, it is worth listening to. William Marceau — Bill is another quiet fellow who minds his own business and believes that practice makes a chemist. Francis McQuillan — According to what the girls say, Mac is becoming more handsome every day. We heartily agree with them in their belief. Paul Riley — Paul is a typical example of what a chemist should be. A diligent worker, Paul usually finds what he seeks. Earl Wilson — Popular with all, Earl ' s cheery personality helps him make friends wherever he goes. Joseph Leal — We know without a doubt that Joe is a comer, and it will not be long before he will be amply re- warded for his diligence. Theodore Ziemba — Anything but shy, Ted is always willing to help out when called upon. John Gilman — Whatever task he is given to do, John does it quietly and produces results. George Silsby — George is always sincere and serious in what he does, be it chemistry or any other subject. Edward Mullaly — Ted is our class de- bater, and it always pays to listen to what he has to say. Milton Kramer — Milton has an in- fectious grin which makes him one of the most popular boys in the class. Standing: E. Simpson, F. Buba, N. Besse, E. Mullaly, G. Silsby, J. Gilman, C. Carlin, W.

Fabricator, ' 38 30 Freshman Qeneral-Special TfTHEN September 15, 1937 rolled around, a group of young men who chose the Textile industry for their future work in life, enrolled in the General Cotton class. Whether or not they made a wise choice remains to be seen, but nevertheless, here they are. Raymond Gobeil — Besides claiming to be a squash player, Ray also claims to be a Don Juan. We ' re more inclined to believe the latter. Leslie Tripp — Leslie always had a great habit of going to the show on Tuesday afternoon. We ' re still wonder- ing who or what broke him of the habit. Rudy Poliquin — Rudy hails from Maine, and when he returns home, hell be able to teach the people a great art he learned at Textile, arettes. chiseling Howard Rossitter — Howie is the fel- low who takes all his subjects seriously, especially weaving. This department seems to hold the greatest interest for him. George Curry — If worse comes to worse, George can always fall back on his old trade, dispensing soft drinks behind the fountain. Winston Sagar — Winston came to Textile to study textiles and is doing a very good job of it. John Walsh — John should have studied for a music career. His fine voice puts many a singer to shame. Raymond Babbitt — Ray is outstand- ing both in his studies and in athletics. He is also very popular among the student body.

A bright student in every department, Hank should rise to great heights. Ray Liddle — Ray believes that there is no place like home whenever a holi- day occurs. Unfortunately, he lives in Johnstown, N. Y., which is a long way from here. Gilman Maynard — Gil is the big boy of the class whose delight is photogra- phy. Gil would look spic if he didn ' t have so much span. Leon Boiko — Leon seems to have a special delight in arguing with a certain instructor.

On lathe No. 1, two of Mr. Bayreu- ther ' s left handed mechanics, " Baby Face " Mikus and " Hi Ho " Houghton, can be seen exchanging their brilliant ideas. Glancing at lathe No. 2, we find " Whistler " Goldrick leaning on the lathe with his green tie dangling in a can of lard oil. From the other side of the room a thunderous roar can be heard, but it is only " Pappy " Anselmo telling " Choppy " Rose about the girl he went out with last night. " Trader Horn " DesRuisseau can be seen with his pockets filled with stock waiting to be turned down to size. From the dark corner comes a grunt and a groan, a sure sign that " Tarzan " Donald, with his tongue between his teeth, is trying to tighten his tool post. He finally has to call his pal " Speed " Schweidenback to aid him. Ernie is the wizard of the shop and does most of the extra work. An argument can always be heard around the shaper between " Robert Taylor " Bellavance and " Flash " Paty- kula over their girl friends. Near the tool room, one will always find Joe Pollit listening to his pal, Lud Ble- charzyk, sing some Polish tune. If at any time help is needed, " Cue Ball " Ogrodnick can always be called upon. Joe is an aggressive fellow and will get along very well in his future life. " Chubby " Landry can always be found asleep on his lathe, and across from him is " Hitler " Erickson working like a slave trying to get his work done, but who will always stop to lend a helping hand. " Lochinvar " Pieraccini can always be found trucking up and down the aisle. Finally the voice of " Curly " Schick can be heard crooning one of the popular tunes of the day. Such is the First Year Mechanical class, a nice group of which the school may well be proud. Standing: A. Bellavance, A. Patykula, E. Goldrick, E. Schweidenbach, F. Schick, E. DesRuisseau, A.

It was finally decided that since he is never absent and is the class angel, he will be allowed to keep his office. At this point, Harry T. Perkins dis- played a picture of Stan Pelczarski which he had just drawn. Although it was drawn on a very large sheet of paper, he could not fit all of Stan on it. Looking at the drawing, Stan let go with a few of his choice wisecracks. In order to change the subject, John Libby was called upon to give an explanation of his latest invention, a super, double, fancy, cotton wire, bead doup leno. Libby plunged right into his explana- tion and had to be forcefully ejected in order to stop him. Nelson Kessel asked for the floor and placed a motion before the class that we circulate a petition asking for classes on Saturday. The motion was seconded by Ogden and was then voted down by the class 6-2. James Potter was now given the floor and gave a speech on vacuum cleaners. Being unable to sell the boys, Jimmie solicited the class for watches to be repaired. The only watch in the class belonged to Louie Pacheco, and after one look at it, Potter refused to attempt repairs. Scott Whitcher then took the floor, and after he fumed and sputtered a few minutes, he was asked to sit down. A treasurer ' s report was then given by Louis Pacheco, stating the class balance to be $0.00. The class then entered into a general discussion on girls. No win- dows were broken and there were no hospital cases. Meeting was adjourned. Respectfully submitted, Herbert D. Cray, Secretary Standing: G. Ogden, N. Kessell, S. Pelczarski, J. Libby.

Working in close co- operation with Gamma Chapter of the Durfee Textile School, the New Bedford organization has sponsored many affairs Avhich have been widely attended. A notice- able trend during the season was toward bigger and better meetings, with a very satisfactory turnout from the alumni. Officers elected at the beginning of the school year were: Councillor — Herman Miller Exchequer — Robert Golub Corresponding Scribe — Dexter Horvitz Recording Scribe — Milton Kramer The first event of the social season was a smoker held at the New Bedford Hotel on October 8, and was enjoyed by members and invited guests, some of whom were from Fall River. George Levovsky, graduate of the local school, spoke on the growth of Sigma Phi Tau since it was started at the Philadelphia Textile School. Only 22 years old, the organization now includes five active and alumni chapters. Walter Kayem was accepted as a member of Beta Chapter and it was decided to run a joint dance in honor of the new brothers in both chapters. The informal dinner-dance was held at Luke ' s Lodge, Tiverton, on March 20. The floor show, dancing, and dinner were arranged by the dance committee, headed by Lou Brody. Among the speakers at special meetings of the local unit have been Jack Goldfarb and Edward Friedberg. Mr. Goldfarb gave a very interesting talk on the silk indus- try, and explained how and why silk can still compete with rayons manufactured in the United States. The lecture by Mr. Friedberg was on the subject " Improve- ments in the art of finishing " , in which he explained several new processes that are now being done in his plant. The crowning event of the fraternal season Was the annual convention which was held in New York on April 30-31. Many fraters attended from New Bedford and enjoyed themselves immensely. It is claimed by all who went that the affair was the biggest and best ever held by Sigma Phi Tau. Fabricator, ' 38 36 Second Row: H. Miller, W. Kayem, M. Kamer. Front Row: R. Golub, D. Horvitz.

Phi Psi is the largest Textile fraternity in the world, having both national and foreign affiliations. The Annual Open House and Smoker was held early in September at the fraternity rooms, and it was a gala evening. Mr. John Shea, President of the Board of Trustees and an executive at the Mount Hope Finishing Co., was the principal speaker of the evening. Ten new candidates were brought into Phi Psi, and we were fortunate in having among them our Principal, Mr. George Walker, who was admitted as an honorary member. Among the social highlights of the year was the joint Third Degree and Banquet held at the Hotel Myles Standish in Boston, in conjunction with Gamma and Deita Chapters. The Banquet was held in the Captain ' s Cabin, and the degree was admin- istered in the Mandarin Room. A semi-formal dance was held at the Wareham Country Club, and a joint dance was held with Delta Kappa Phi at the New Bedford Hotel. This year the annual convention took place at the Hotel Pilgrim in Plymouth on Cape Cod. Golf, tennis, swimming, and horseback riding were enjoyed by all. The affair was well attended, and will always be remembered by those who attended. The annual farewell banquet and dance was a huge success. At this affair the girls received fraternity favors as is the custom every year at this time. Beta will lose five men through graduation this year. To them we offer our congratulations and extend to them best wishes for success and happiness. Fabricator, ' 38 38 Standing: E. Simpson, E. Mullaly, G. Ogden, J. Beattie, N. Kessell, G. Silsby, J.

Delta was granted a charter in 1917. At an informal get-together and smoker held in our new rooms in the center section of the city, the new students of the school who received invitations had an oppor- tunity to meet the members, faculty members, and several of the alumni. Several of these prospective candidates became pledges and after the necessary informal degrees they were passed, and then received their formal degree and pledged them- selves to carry on in the traditions symbolical of the Delta Kappa Phi. This year we had the honor and pleasure of inducting into our fraternity the latest acquisition to the faculty, Mr. Antone Rodil, instructor in the weaving department. Shortly after this confirmation of the final degree, we were greatly saddened by the untimely death of one of our brothers, Brother Roger Lumbard. Many a profitable hour was passed away by the fratres as they enjoyed the many recreational advantages and opportunities for profound study offered to those using the fraternity rooms. The height of the social season was reached when, with the splendid cooperation of the Beta Chapter of Phi Psi, we ran an inter-fraternity dance in the grand ball- room of the New Bedford Hotel. After many weeks of diligent planning the Delta Chapter sponsored the National Convention of the fraternity held here April 29 and 30. The visiting fratres were taken on a tour of the city and its historic points of interest. The business meeting was held Saturday afternoon and the convention brought to a close at the banquet and dance held in the evening. At the business meeting, the following National Officers were elected: Supreme Consul — R. All en Watson Supreme Pro Consul — Joseph E. Goodavage Supreme Annotater — A. Ward France Supreme Custodian — G. Edwin Wilson At the conclusion of the National Convention, Delta Chapter elected its slate of officers for the forthcoming year. Edward L. Murphy was elected Trustee for the Chapter. As the closing weeks of the semester drew near, the Chapter tendered a farewell dinner followed by a dance to the eleven members who are now joined in the ranks of the alumni.

Fabricator, ' 38 42 cAthletics Baseball TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT TRAINING STATION Textile opened its 1937 baseball season by losing a thrilling, closely played game to a strong Navy nine by 6-5. In the eighth inning Textile tied t he score with some very timely hitting, but a double play by the Sailors put a check on further hopes of scoring. The heavy hitters in this first game were Tom Barry and Jack Ryan, the former getting two singles while Jack banged out two doubles. Gene Gula and Vera Hillman proved to be a smooth- working combination. TEXTILE vs. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE FRESHMEN Losing its second game in as many starts, Textile dropped another heart- breaking 10-inning game to the Provi- dence College squad by a score of 11-7. The Friars scored 5 runs in the tenth inning when Textile ' s pitching weakened and its defense collapsed. In spite of all their determined efforts, the Mill- men were only able to score once in the last frame. Again a double play pre- vented Textile from staging a rally, for in the last inning the Friars executed a snappy double play to end the game. Tom Barry ' s double and triple were the highlights for the Textile squad. TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE Textile finally crashed into the win column in the third game of the season by defeating their rival from Fall River to the tune of 9-8 in a thrilling hard fought eleven-inning game. The game was a heavy hitting affair from the start, with the Millmen finally hitting their stride and playing bang-up ball. Ramsbotham, Winiarski, Ryan, and Gula led the way for Textile by col- lecting two or more hits. Hillman again turned in a very good performance as relief hurler and cer- tainly deserved the victory.

Fabricator, ' 38 44 TEXTILE vs. DEAN ACADEMY Having finally hit their stride, Textile won its second game of the season at the expense of Dean Academy, trimming them to the score of 11-5. A total of fifteen hits were obtained by the team, eight of them being good for extra bases. Ramsbotham and Ash- worth were the big guns of the day, Alan collecting three singles while Ashie garnered a homer and a double. Vera Hillman again pitched a very good game, allowing only five hits and strik- ing out eleven men. TEXTILE vs. WENTWORTH INSTITUTE Showing an absolute reversal of form and playing its poorest game of the season, Textile bowed to Wentworth by the score of 16-3. The team showed no trace of its class and style of ball play- ing of which it was capable, and thus bowed to a superior team. Alan Ramsbotham again starred for Textile by banging out a triple and a single. Joe Dias turned in a commend- able performance as a relief hurler in allowing only three runs in six innings. TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE Textile snapped back into the win column by defeating Becker 10-3. This was the team ' s second game in as many days, and the squad showed a complete change from their loose playing of the day before. Vera Hillman, starting pitcher, opened a little erratic but finally settled down to turn in a fine job of pitching by striking out twelve batters. The Barry-Ryan combination clicked again in this game, Tom getting two singles, while Jack clipped a double and two singles. TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL Keeping on the win side of the ledger, Textile downed its local rival, Voca- tional, by the score of 9-1. The game, however, was much more exciting and interesting than what the score indicates. Both teams played very fine ball and it was by superior pitching that Textile finally won. This game marked Joe Dias ' first mound start, and he turned in a very commendable performance by allowing only five hits. Featuring for Textile was Elton Mann who drove out three smashing doubles. Freddie Frey also had a good day at the bat by collecting two singles. TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT TRAINING STATION It was evident that the Sailors from Newport had the Indian sign on Textile during the baseball season, for playing a return game with the Training Station squad, the Millmen again had to bow to the Sailors by the score of 14-6. Credit must be given the team for they really played a very good game. Textile started out with a bang, for in the first inning they scored three runs, but this lead was short lived for in their half of the same inning, the Sailors accounted for six runs. From then on there was no doubt about the outcome of the game. The fielding gem of the game was made by Tom Barry who pulled off a snappy double play unassisted. Vera Hillman and Gene Gula led the Textile hitters with two singles apiece. 45 Fabricator, ' 38 TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE With Vera Hillman holding the Durfee Textile baseball team to four scattered hits, Textile won another game from its rival. Textile scored heavily in the first, third, and sixth innings, the boys hitting the ball with a lusty vigor. Tom Barry and Floyd Ashworth led the local bat- ters at the plate by getting a double and single apiece. TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE Textile again remained in the win column by defeating Becker again at Worcester, 6-4. The team displayed the ability of which it was capable and really had no trouble in winning the game. Outstanding features in the game for Textile were Vera Hillman ' s fine pitch- ing and Tom Barry ' s excellent fielding. Leading in the batting department was Floyd Ashworth followed closely by Tom Barry. Alan Ramsbotham again played his usual fine game and made two sensational catches in the outfield. TEXTILE vs. WENTWORTH INSTITUTE In a return game with Wentworth Institute, Textile again lost by a score of 2-1. Unlike their first meeting of the season, Textile played a very close game with Vera Hillman twirling very good ball. The game was a pitcher ' s battle right up to the ninth inning, but too many free passes by Hillman finally led to his downfall. There were quite a number of the students present to see this game, for the entire student body was dismissed for the game. Those students present saw the Textile team play a superb fielding game for they completed no less than three double plays. TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL In its poorest played game of the season, Textile was upset by Vocational at Buttonwood Park by the score of 5-4. Leo Winiarski, pitcher for Textile, pitched a good game up ' till the ninth inning. In the first half of the ninth he made three errors which clinched the game for Vocational. Gene Gula and Tom Barry again led the Textile batters, and both turned in a very good game. FOUL TIPS Well, it proved to be a fairly success- ful season after all, even though Man- ager Fran Walsh did have to turn nurse- maid a few times. Tom Barry came back from Worces- ter with more capital than what he took with him. Tom evidently learned that little trinkets have cash value. Poor girl. Leo Winiarski did a very good job of fainting in the last inning of the Voke game. Hollywood would pay plenty for such a great performance, Leo. When Jack Ryan dropped a fly ball in the sixth inning of the Providence College game, he brought his glove in before Coach Gourley had a chance to say anything. Jack was right — good old bench. Here ' s one we have to tell. During the Becker game at Worcester, one fair damsel was heard to say " My, doesn ' t the catcher for Textile look like Shirley Temple. " The catcher ' s name happened to be Gula — Gene to you. Scott Whitcher used to work around first base in a pair of " snuggies " . At least that is what they looked like. How he ever bent over to scoop up the ball and still keep them intact is something we could never stop wondering at. It was pretty bad when the man who was running the team had to retrieve all the foul balls. There ' s no justice, eh, Fran? Fabricator, , 38 46 Soccer TEXTILE vs. BRIDGEWATER TEACHER ' S COLLEGE Playing its opening game of the sea- son against Bridcewater. New Bedford Textile suffered its first defeat by 3-1. Nevertheless, the Millmen forced their opponents to battle with their backs to the wall for a greater part of the game and did make a creditable showing. Textile ' s lone score came when Mann passed the ball to Anselmo and the latter converted with a hard forceful boot. Textile ' s score might have been higher had the finishing punch around the goal been present. Gula, Patykula. and Dias were outstanding in their kicking ability and all around play. TEXTILE vs. CLARK UNIVERSITY Through the remarkable playing of its goaltender, Clark University man- aged to hold Textile to a 1-1 tie. Most of the afternoon ' s play was in Clark ' s territory, as the Millmen were con- stantly hammering at Clark ' s goal. It was in the third period that Clark scored its lone tally. Anselmo scored Textile ' s goal on a great pass from Elton Mann. Sammy Craven and Mann were the main cogs in Textiles offensive drives, while Stan Pelczarski play r ed a bang up game de- fensively. TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU COLLEGE In a hard fought game which was played mostly in heavy " downpours and strong winds, Textile defeated the hither- to undefeated Thibodeau College 2-1. The weather produced a great many freak plays, most of which were never seen before. Both of Tech ' s goals were scored in the second half. The first came when Houghton rushed the goalie who failed to dribble out. Eddie carried the guardian with the ball into the netting. Tbe second goal came when Mann scored on a clever ten yard kick. Although all the players for the Mill- men put in a fine game, Houghton and Mann deserve to be mentioned for their great performance. £to. . , C% Front Roiv: Craven, Mann. Whalley.

Starting off strongly, Clark kept the ball in Tech ' s territory for the greater part of the first half, but in Ray Babbit they found a firm bulwark. Ray cap- ably handled all of the opponent ' s thrusts, including three spectacular saves. The first goal of the game was scored by Ted Zubricki, substituting for Houghton who was injured in a scramble for the ball. Fine passing on the part of Dias and Patykula led to Textile ' s sec- ond score with Stan Pelczarski scoring. Following this, Clark, tied the score with but three minutes to play remaining in the game. Sammy Craven, the little man with a big kick, proved to be an important part in Textile ' s offense by making remark- able placement kick. Whalley, Mann and Carlin played their best games thus far, helping considerably to keep the ball in Clark ' s area during the second half. TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE Durfee Textile, New Bedford ' s rival from Fall River, set the local team back by the score of 2-0. This was the first time this season that New Bedford was shut out entirely. As a whole, the team was decidedly off form. Gene Gula and Alex Patykula were the only local players that showed any form. Both were accurate in their kick- ing and showed fine spirit in defensive playing. TEXTILE vs. HARVARD FRESHMEN Playing its best brand of ball for the season, New Bedford Textile defeated the powerful Harvard Frosh 4-2 at Cam- bridge. From the opening kickoff Tex- tile had things its own way. Ted Zubricki, substituting for Whal- ley, started the scoring when he started a drive into the netting during the first period. Anselmo then scored two in a row in the third period, while Harvard was only able to make one tally. " Little Stan " Pelczarski closed Textile ' s scoring with a beautiful shot from a wide angle. Whalley, after returning to the game, did some fine kicking and passing which resulted in two scores. TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE Earning a well earned 2-1 victory, New Bedford Textile avenged its defeat of earlier in the season at the hands of Durfee Textile. Filled with action throughout the way, the contest brought about bitter argument from both teams. Anselmo started off the scoring in the second period by placing a neat shot between the uprights. This period was New Bedford ' s best for the ball was kept continually in Durfee ' s territory. The other goal scored by the locals was made by Elton Mann who gave the ball an unerring boot on a pass from Pelczarski. Joe Dias, Carl Carlin, and Alex Paty- kula were outstanding along with Gene Gula who stood out in the defence. TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU COLLEGE New Bedford Textile lost its final game of the season, bowing to the strong Thibodeau College eleven at Fall River to the score of 2-1. The Textile squad was lacking the final punch to put the ball across every time they came close to the opposition goal. This was un- fortunate, for it cost them their final game. Setting a rapid pace, Gene Gula played an outstanding game all the way through. Alex Patykula and Carl Carlin turned in very fine performances to end a very successful season. Stan Pelczar- ski scored New Bedford ' s only marker of the game and the last one of the season. Fabricator, ' 38 48 Basketball TEXTILE vs. ALUMNI Coach Stan Szulik " s newest edition of Textile basketball teams found that the Grads were still in the mood for basket- ball and were forced to bow to their elders. 35-28. The game featured the dribbling of Eddie Kosiba and the fine plaving of Joe Aulisio of last year ' s team. These boys kept the grads in the running, along with the fast passes by Ed George which resulted in many points. The undergrads tried desperately to close the gap in the final quarter when the Alumni sent in a flock of subs, but their lead was too great. John Pierac- cini was the only Textile man to display any brilliance in floor work. The rest of the team tried hard, but were unable to click. TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU COLLEGE With but one half of a minute left to play, Junior Pieraccini and Stan Pel- zarski scored two quick baskets to give Textile a close victory over Thibodeau, by the score of 35-34. The Millmen showed much better form in this game and gave every indication of a good season. The passing was almost flaw- less, but the team missed several long shots. The Fall Riverites led at half time period by 15-11, and kept this lead until the last period. During the last period, Coach Szulik changed his line-up and here Textile started to roll along with Eddie Hough- ton leading the way. Eddie made four beautiful shots in this session and these along with the last minute baskets spelled victory for the locals. Mikus and Pelczarski were high scorers in this second game. TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL An over-confident Textile Quintet barely managed to eke out a 22-20 victory over a much younger Vocational team. The Millmen strived desperately to hit their stride but were, for some reason, unable to click. Voke led throughout the fray and constantly broke up Tech ' s plays. John Pieraccini again came through for Textile by shooting the winning marker. Outstanding also were Elton Mann and Leo Winiarski. Standing: J. Rose, H. Briggs. D. Braiden. C. Shanks, C. Carlin. J.

' 38 TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE Holding the powerful Becker College to the close score of 49-40, New Bedford Textile School played its best game of the current season. This game also proved to be one of the best ever wit- nessed at the Tech Gym, as it was a nip and tuck affair until the last three minutes. Here Becker went on a scor- ing spree to win the game. Textile trailed 35-34 as the contest went into the last period, but the splen- did shooting of the Becker forwards widened their lead considerably. Elton Mann, aggressive forward, headed the scoring for Textile with eleven points, earned mostly with beautiful shots from the center of the court. Winiarski also was well up in the scoring column, being credited for five field baskets. TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE New Bedford Textile snapped back into the win column by defeating its ancient rival Durfee Textile to the tune of 41-30. Starting out slowly, the local Millmen, led Durfee at the end of the first half by 17-15, and then put on the pressure in the remaining periods to outscore their opponents 24-15. Eddie Houghton, star left forward, was lost to Textile when he suffered a sprained ligament during one of the many scrambles for the ball. Leo Winiarski played a marvelous defensive game and excelled in contin- ually taking the ball off of the back- boards. Al Mikus was the high scorer of Textile, and he practically tore the nettings apart by dropping in seven field goals and two fouls to make the evening very successful for himself and the team. TEXTILE vs. THIBODEAU COLLEGE Textile continued its spectacular play- ing by turning back Thibodeau Business College for the second time in the sea- son by the score of 40-34. The whalers handled the ball flawlessly and made most of their shots count. Coach Szulik ' s boys scored heavily in the third period with " Long John " Pieraccini leading the way. Elton Mann was forced to leave the game in the second period when he chipped a bone in his left foot. Junior Pieraccini hoisted in eighteen points to lead the scorers, while Stan Pelczarski starred on the defensive by holding the opponent ' s star forward to a scoreless evening. Floyd Ashworth re- turned to the floor after a long layoff and turned in a commendable per- formance at guard. TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING Newport Naval Station snapped Tex- tile ' s winning streak by scoring a de- cisive 42-28 victory. The Sailors ' rapid passwork and fine defensive play were the deciding factors in winning the con- test. The Millmen were unable to pene- trate the air-tight defense and were forced to resort to long shooting which most of the time was erratic. Several combinations were tried in order to silence the bombardment of the Navy guns, but the onslaught could not be stopped. Leo Winiarski was the only Textile man to do any scoring against the Middies as he dropped in twelve Fabricator, ' 38 50 points. Aillery, besides scoring six points, played a very good game. TEXTILE vs. BRYANT COLLEGE The highly touted Brvant College quintet easily set back Textile by the one-sided score of 51-24. The Cotton men were still unable to snap out of their slump, and Bryant seemed to make points at will. It was largely due to the efforts of Stan Pelczarski that the locals were able to make any kind of a showing in the first half, for the robust guard played a wonderful floor game and came through with a much needed eight points. Textile ' s scoring ended when Aillery put in a difficult shot from the center of the floor with five minutes remaining in the game. He was high scorer for the losers leading his teammates by nine points. TEXTILE vs. DURFEE TEXTILE New Bedford Textile again snapped back into the right side of the ledger at the expense of Durfee Textile by trim- ming the Fall River outfit for the second time, 30-27. The game was a typical old time meeting between the two teams with feeling running high in certain periods, especially in the fourth. Our boys were leading as the game went into the last period, but during this session the score changed hands three times, with the locals winning out in the last minute. Joe Dias played a tireless game for the winners by being constantly in the line of battle. Also outstanding in the Textile lineup was Al Mikus. He kept dashing out in the open to score many baskets which greatly aided in determin- ing the final outcome of the game. TEXTILE vs. VOCATIONAL Turning in a surprise upset by a win over New Bedford Textile in the new I 14 I I. ££ j| li Hammond gymnasium, Vocation won by 29-15. The Textile boys apparently entered the game feeling too confident and took too much for granted. Mean- while the Voke lads settled down to serious business and piled on a sub- stantial lead which could not be over- come. The Millmen tried to forge ahead in the final quarter, but their rally was cut short when Winiarski and Dias were lost by the foul route. Jerry Aillery and Elk Mann, who re- turned after being on the sidelines for three games, played best for the losers. TEXTILE vs. BECKER COLLEGE Playing a powerful team at Worcester, Textile was completely outclassed by Becker College, who scored at will and gave the Millmen their worst defeat of the season. The Collegians tossed in 73 points to Textile ' s 38. Coach Szulik tried desperately to mus- ter a team capable of stemming the con- stant drives of Becker ' s forwards, who dropped in fifty-two points. Only two Textile men displayed any talent which could approach that of their opponents. These were Whalley and Leo Winiarski, who scored twelve and ten points respectively. Whally also played a fine defensive game. 51 Fabricator, ' 38 TEXTILE vs. NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING Defeating the Textile men for the sec- ond time this s eason, the Sailors won by the score of 38-26 at their home court. This loss was the fourth in a row for our boys and proved to be the worst slump suffered by any Textile team for some time. The Sailors grad- ually crept away from their visitors as the game grew older. Navy led, 8-4, 18-10, 28-18, at the quarters. The game was very rough as the referee failed to use the whistle, but merely let the struggle roll on, touch- ing the ball only when it went offside. Eddie Houghton was the star for Textile by dropping in thirteen points, while Stan Pelczarski played his usual good game at guard. TEXTILE vs. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE FRESHMEN Textile redeemed itself for its poor playing in the previous games by hold- ing a fast Providence College Freshman team to the score of 50-40. Although the Millmen lost this game, it was one of the best played by them this current season. Textile was kept in the running mostly by the fine work of Jerry Aillery, who was all over the floor, breaking up plays and scoring vital baskets. This game ended the scholastic en- deavors of Leo Winiarski, Floyd Ash- worth, and John Whalley. Ashworth and Mann stood out on the defensive, while Aillery dropped in eleven points to become high scorer of his team. In a return game with Bryant College, Textile lost 65-20. Tennis Textile ' s crack tennis aggregation held its first practice on April 26, under the tutelage of Malcolm Richardson. This initial limbering up exercise was held at Brooklawn Park, and Elbert Tripp and Elmer Diggle gave every indication that they would have a successful season. With these men as a nucleus, Coach Richardson built up a team which proved to be capable of meeting any type of opposition. The other men on the team were Louis Pacheco, Nelson Kessel, Louis Gagnon, and Arnold Aspden. After smashing through six consecu- tive matches without a defeat, the Textile racqueteers loosened up and lost their last two games to complete the season with six wins and two losses.

New Bedford Textile was represented on the fairways with the initiation of a golf team. Malcolm Richardson, an instructor in the Design- ing Department, voluntered his services as coach and issued the first call for practice on April 28. Only a small number of candidates reported, and those who survived the final cut were Ernest Krig, Frank Aspin, Fred Geary, Leo Winiarski, Jerry Aillery, and Bob Potter. Frank Aspin was appointed manager and was instructed to draw up some sort of a schedule. An attempt was made to gain admission in the Inter- scholastic Golfing League, but this proved to be fruitless. Frank therefore had to arrange a schedule in a very short time as the season was slowly drawing to a close. Matches were obtained with Vocational and East Providence on the home and home basis. The Textile divot diggers did not fare so well in these contests, for they had to bow to their younger op- ponents in both matches. Outstanding for the Textile team was Ernie Krig who lost only one match, and that being in the East Providence game. Hopes are high for a more successful season this year for all of the members of last year ' s squad will return to try and place Textile on the golfing map. F. Aspin. L. Winiarski, H. Krig, G. Aillery, R. Potter. 53 Fabricator, -38 Debating REPRESENTING the Textile School for the second year, the debating team has risen to new heights due to the aroused interest shown by the student body. Under the tutelage of Attorney David Entin and the management of Robert Golub, many contacts were made with college varsity teams which helped the school into public notice. As a practice debate, the Textile de- baters started the season on January 14, with an unanimous decision over the Standing: F. Geary, C. Flanagan. Seated: R. Golub, H. Taylor. New Bedford High School team, uphold- ing the affirmative of the resolution : " The National Labor Relations Board should be empowered to enforce arbitra- tion in all industrial disputes. " The team consisted of: Robert Golub, Clif- ford Flanagan, Edward Mullaly, and Henry Taylor who gave a remarkable rebuttal. Mayor Leo E. J. Carney acted as chairman for the evening. As guests of Amherst College, Fred Geary, Clifford Flanagan, Henry Taylor, Robert Golub, and Edward Mullaly participated in a round of debates with Amherst, University of North Carolina, Muhlenberg College of Virginia, and Wesleyan University. These were " no- decision " debates and were conducted on the Oregon System which includes cross examination. The visiting teams were entertained with a play " Henry the IV " , and with a forensic frolic. The two remaining debates on the schedule are a debate with the local branch of the Knights of Columbus who will uphold the negative on: " Resolved that the City of New Bedford should adopt the plan B charter form of gov- ernment. " The other is a debate with Lowel Textile Institute on May 6 about the highly debated question of the Na- tional Labor Relations Board. It is also probable that a debate may be ar- ranged with Worcester Polytechnic In- stitute where there is a newly formed debating society. Debating at Textile is still in its in- fancy, but with the new spirit shown it by the students and faculty, the future looks bright and Textile should rise to new heights in the forensic art.
