THE SCHOOL r I ODAY is the age of golden opportunities - - to the youth of the nation who desire to increase their education in some chosen field of endeavor and thereby equip them- selves with the tools of education necessary to achieve success in their chosen profession. Of all the diversified lines of study open to the youth of the country, New Bedford Textile School offers as unique an education as can be found in any of our institutions. Although the school does not award the much desired degree of Bachelor of Science, the practical knowledge and close contact with the outside industries, which our institution always strives to maintain, is a factor which will be of great importance to the student when he later realizes that this practical knowledge gained in school is a necessary implement for his position in the industry. The New Bedford Textile School was founded for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a textile school for instruction in the theory and practical art of textiles and kindred branches of the industry. The school primarily confines itself to instruction in the cotton branch of the textile industry, although rayon is now finding its place in the course of instruction. The whole of the machinery and apparatus in the school is modern, being constructed especially for the school. There is no manufacturing establishment which can present so large a variety of machinery as the New Bedford Textile School offers, as the school ' s machinery is selected to afford the maximum facilities for all kinds of experi- mental work. Many diversified courses are offered in the school, each giving a complete education along a specialized line of study. The course in cotton manufacturing is designed to give that ' s Different! the student a thorough fundamental knowledge of the different processes entering into the construction of a piece of cloth from the raw staple to the finished product. The first two years are spent studying the funda- mentals of cotton manufacturing, during which time the student is also given various allied subjects each of which is more or less essential to the manufacturing of cotton fabrics. The student is well versed in all the processes which are carried on in a textile manufacturing establishment. In third year he is thrown on his own resources, as most of the work in the final year is original, thereby exciting the initiative of the individual. The course is thorough and prepares the student for executive positions in any of the various processes necessary to cotton cloth manufacturing. To the individual interested in chemistry, the Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Course provides a thorough knowledge of the chemistry of the textile processes involved in the manufacturing of cotton cloth. To insure a perfect foundation, the first two years are devoted almost entirely to chemical subjects and laboratory, as general chemistry, chemical analysis and organic chemistry. The student also must pursue many allied sub- jects as well as a study of the various fibres and methods of coloring them. The final year is spent in study of commercial methods of processing cotton fabrics and in the last semester, the student carries out a thesis, developing by his own initiative some improvement in chemical processes, whereby he increases his own knowledge of the specific process chosen and increases the total accumulation of research material for students who follow. The Designing Course is a branch of study closely allied to the cotton manufacturing course but offers more extensive work in weaving and the designing and analysis of cotton fabrics. The student is taught in all the various types of construction of the different cotton fabrics and obtains a thorough knowledge of each. Manufacturing of knit goods is another course allied with the general cotton manufacturing course but is more adapted to the needs of those students desiring a thorough knowledge of the knitting industry. The student is instructed in methods of operation of various types of knitting machines. Instruction given covers both the technical and practical parts of the business as well as the fundamentals of cotton manufacturing. Students with a mechanical inclination find the Mechanical Course well fitted for their desires. A practical knowledge of the mechanical side of a textile mill is obtained, as well as extensive training in drafting, in this two-year certificate course. The Testing and Fabric Analysis Course and the Rayon Preparation Course have recently come into more prominence. The increasing demand for laboratory technicians and research men has made graduates of these courses of technical methods of testing and analysis, men of importance in the outside industry. The ever increasing demand for research in the cotton industry will cause these courses to enlarge in the years to follow. Honorable Samuel Ross DEDICATION With respect for his ability as a legislator; with appreciation and regard for his impartial judgment so often rendered between employers and employees; with gratitude for his faithful and tireless efforts for the wel- fare and development of the New Bedford Textile School, of which he was one of the original founders; we dedicate this 1939 issue of the Fabricator to him whom we call friend — FRIEND George Walker FACULTY ADMINISTRATION George Walker, Principal Maud L.

Buba. Front Row — J. Leal, E. Simpson, E. Mullaly, M. Kramer, E. Wilson. CHEMISTRY This column is to acquaint the readers with the members of the Second Year Chemistry Class. CARL CARLIN, one fellow who appre- ciates beautiful music. His favorite or- chestra is Willie Bryant, draw your own conclusion. JOHN GILMAN, another chemist musi- cally inclined, he plays the jug beautifully. PAUL RILEY, a true chemist who has great inventive ability. Plays soccer and basketball well also. MILTON KRAMER— can little smiling " Miltie " help it if he is the toughest guy in the class? Neither can anyone else. THEODORE ZIEMBA— better known as " Teddy " , bound to become a great man in a Chemical Industry. EDWARD MULLALY— better known as " Ted " , due to succeed; perhaps some day he will be known as the Great Surgeon. EDWARD SIMPSON— destined to be a Good Textile Chemi st and a member of the next Olympic Rifle Team. EARL WILSON— perhaps Earl will some day own the newspaper for which he is now working. FELIX BUBA, will be a great orchestra leader with a hobby, which is probably chemistry. WILLIAM MARCEAU — known as " Bill " , and if anyone has any ideas of World Affairs, " Bill " will try to bring them over to his side. JOSEPH LEAL — Joe to anyone in school. Breaks all speed records with his car. Joe and John Gilman are inseparable pals, try to separate them. FRANCIS McQUILLAN— a good-heart- ed romeo. Frank ' s side line, besides his chemistry, is managing an up-and-coming dance band. 26 Fabricator, 1939 CLASS OF 1940 GENERAL Let me introduce the students in the " mad mill men " class. RAYMOND BABBITT ( " Cowboy " ) : This strong silent he-man seems to have missed his calling. He spends most of his time at the Truesdale Hospital in Fall River, with the " sweetest, little nurse in training, " so we are told. Perhaps he should have been a doctor. LEON BOIKO ( " Bowkow " ) : " Bow ' kow " spends more of his time out of school than in school, usually on Exam- ination Days, but we must give him credit, for while he is in school he knows as much as the instructors — ask him sometime. The class is trying to collect enough money to send Leon back to Russia. ARTHUR COE (Art) : Art is the father of the class, and he is very popular. He is the top trumpet player and musician of the class. Art is still true to his native Fairhaven. GEORGE CURRY (Curry) : Curry is one man, at least, who does not believe that " variety is the spice of life " . He has been going around with the same girl practically all his life. It seems that Poloquin and Tripp have been trying to get Curry out just one night an give him a little variety, but George won ' t be led from the straight and narrow path. RICHARD DALESSANDRO (Dick) : Dick is the gentleman of the class. He loves to work, for when he finds a moment of leisure, he does more work. Dick thinks that Poloquin can find more ways to make mistakes than anyone in the class. RAYMOND GOBEIL ( " Gobble " ): If anyone wants to hire a first class stooge, Gobble is the man guaranteed to give results. If it were not for him the class would be forced to hire a jester to keep things alive. WILLIAM POISSON ( " Hank " ): " Hank, " an authority in the class on swing bands, is a very hard worker, but manages to squeeze in a few moments to fight with Ray Gobeil or Johnnie Walsh. He had a little accident awhile back, but when he found he couldn ' t collect insur- ance, he quickly recovered. RUDOLPH POLOQUIN ( " Rudy " ): " Rudy " better known as " Cassanova " is God ' s Gift to Women. Some one has to keep the fair sex happy. LESLIE TRIPP ( " Trippie " ) : Here is the original " man about town " . He is like a page from Esquire. Our spies tell us that Trippie has practically paid off the mortgage on the Bridge Diner. JOHN WALSH ( " Walshy " ) : Walshy is the original white collar worker of the class. He hates to get his hands dirty, but thanks to Prof. Richard- son, he has not been able to stay spotless. He is also quite an authority on swing, but Hank Poisson doesn ' t think so. They get along like cat and dog. Hi w ' •5 11 ttl -M V - y Second Row — R. Babbitt, J. Walsh, L. Boiko, R. Dallessandro, G. Curry. Front Row — L. Tripp. R. Poliquin, A. Coe, N. Gobeil, W. Poisson. Fabricator, 1939 27 CLASS OF 1940 Third Row — L. Charroux, J. Brown, A. Szala, J. Ramsbottom. Second Row — A. Setera, J. Ferdinand, F. Mitchell, V. Smith, M. Frazier, N. Walker. Front Row — W. Sawyer, T. Blecharczyk, G. Silsbee, W. Delano, N. Harpin, C. Bradshaw. MECHANICAL NICHOLUS ANTONOULIS " Nicky " Though quiet in his manner Nicky depends upon his keen powers of observance. CARLTON W. BRADSHAW " Toots ' Toots does his work easily and efficiently, but he does a good job which seldom lacks in quality. JOSEPH R. BROWN, Jr. " Joe " Joe, a good natured fellow, is the victim of so many jokes and tricks, he hardly knows when something is not being perpetrated against him. TEDDY BLECHARCZYK " Ted " Teddy is a fine student, workman and a member of the basketball team. LAWRENCE CHARRAUX " Dopey " His dislike for studies and his blunt at- tempts to free himself from their bonds has left him many embarrassing circumstances. WILBUR W. DELANO " Del " " Del " was formerly a football star at Dartmouth High School, but he has varied his talent, and is now a big asset to the " Tech " debating team. MALCOM FRAISER " Mac " Mac has a very characteristic fiery temper whether in class or on the basketball floor. JOHN FERDINAND, Jr. " Red " " Red " never takes his studies too seriously but can generally find some way of having them done " nearly " on time. NORMAN HARPIN " Hairpin " Harpin, from the air corps in Hawaii, is very frank in his convictions and will back them up with fiery arguments. FRED MITCHELL " Freddy " Another of those who believe that studies are all right in school where he can give a good account of himself. JOHN RAMSBOTTOM " Ramsay " This happy-go-lucky fellow always has a good line to fit the occasion. WILLIAM SAWYER " Bill " Big Bill is the star on the mythical unde- feated football team. ADOLPH SETERA Perhaps it is because he is so small that he can afford to attend all the sporting events in greater New Bedford. VICTOR SMITH " Vic " He is a good student who does his work very well by applying himself. GEORGE SILSBY " Manny " This tall lanky fellow, formerly of the Chemistry course, is endowed with a unique sense of humor all for himself. ALFRED SZALA " Al " Though he finds it hard to return to his studies, after working since his graduation, he is making a sincere attempt to succeed. NORRIS WALKER " Norrie " Though Norris is the youngest and small- est in his class, he seems to keep up with the others very well. 28 Fabricator, 1939 CHEMISTRY CLASS OF 1941 Each member of the Freshman Chemis- try Class seems to have a prized motto which has been with him throughout his early career. The motto — " The world owes me a living, " explains in short why teach- ers go gray. In Textile the class is off to a slow start. Not much has been accom- plished yet. While the students haven ' t started to improve their minds, their health has become perfect through frequent naps indulged in wherever they might be, in laboratory or lecture room. But suppose we look over each indi- vidual ' s qualifications. NELSON B. ARMITAGE leads the noise-making element of the class. Talks unceasingly in a penetrating voice, mostly about girls. His laugh is a combined cackle and screech which is the reason why teachers lower his daily mark frequently. JOHN BARTER is the opposite type from Nelson, being very quiet. A quite careful and industrious person always found at his desk minding his own busi- ness and doing his own work. NORMAN R. BURT, we once proph- esied, would be a matinee idol. At least one person thinks he is God ' s gift to the fair sex. Who? N. R. B. JAMES F. CAIRNS, the lanky individ- ual always working overtime perhaps to make up for time wasted during school hours. Another possessor of that rare virtue of being able to do one ' s own work, is EVERETTE W. COUNSELL. GEORGE M. DABROWSKI was once proclaimed " Peanut Eating Champ of New Bedford. " Among the other things he is tops in, is knowing what everyone else is doing. Quell curiosity! JULIEN A. DESJARDINS usually hides behind a thick stubble. He is a good artist, drawing elaborate apparatus set-ups to accompany his experiments. Too bad the experiments aren ' t as elaborate. ANDREW WENTWORTH GOODWIN, ex-Dartmouth High star. His masculine prowess is going to waste in a school which boasts only two co-eds. RALPH E. HAWES, once nicknamed " Cherubic Hawes " by an alert sports re- porter. Now he vow ' s to eradicate anyone who makes the fatal mistake of calling him by that name. We ' d better be careful. BERNARD P. KUWASKI spends his time worrying about coming chemistrv tests. He worries more after. Third Row — J. Barter. R. Sumner. E. Counsell. J. Cairns, A. Goodwin. Second Row — N. Armitage, J. Desjardins, S. Michelson, R. Long. R. Hawes, R. Taylor. G. Stetson. N. Burt. Front Roiv — G. Dabrowski, E. Wood, J. Morris. A. Taylor, E. Patnaude, J. Leontire. Fabricator, 1939 29 JAMES A. LEONTIRE has been feeling like a cowboy without a horse. Reason — his car hasn ' t been registered this year. ROBERT R. LONG, who we all know as " Shorty " , has a sunny personality un- equaled in the chemistry department. one has to wake him up when the train gets in. RAYMOND SUMNER is tops in his studies. Certainly he does his best at any- thing he undertakes. An inspiration for the rest of us. SIDNEY MICKELSON is the poor soul who has to get up in the wee hours of the A.M. to unload trucks. Such is the life of a hard-working trucker. For a bit of a traveler we have JAMES J. MORRIS. He has visited many parts of North, Central and South America. A good worker we have found. EARL PATNAUDE is the chemist su- perb of this class of " mad chemists " . He can be seen at any time of the day with a book in his hand; at that it might be " Gone with the Wind " . ALDEN TAYLOR is constantly giving advice on affairs of the heart. So long as it is free we listen. Who is late for school almost every morning, sleeps through lectures and undertakes experiments only with the as- sistance of three or four others? None other than RICHARD E. TAYLOR. WILLIAM WINGATE is a person to be envied. His father is an expert on textile chemistry and dyeing. No wonder the boys like to visit at William ' s home. GEORGE ROBERT STETSON hails from a hamlet somewhere north of here called Myricks. Every morning he at- tempts to do his homework on the Way to school, but we hear that invariably some- EDWARD B. WOOD, formerly Presi- dent of the first year classes, was with us only one term. We hope he is doing well on the outside. Walk do not run to the nearest exit. CLASS OF 1941 GENERAL A small but hilarious group of students stormed the New Bedford Textile School in September, ' 38, supposedly in the Gen- eral Cotton Manufacturing Course. After discovering that they were general clean- ers and repairmen for the upperclassmen thev took to their positions like true W.P.A. aspirants, doing the least they could in the most time. Never a day passed without the three members of the Ritz Bros. Wrecking Crew discovering some new prank to wreck havoc on some one of their classmates to the hilarity of the oth- ers.

CLASS HISTORY Today as we stand upon the threshold of another commencement, we realize that we are about to offer our talents to a swiftly moving world, and we wonder if the noted authority who said, " They (the younger generation) are the hope of the world, " really meant what he said. But enough of the future, let us reminisce for a while; let ' s look back over our three-year stop-over at this temple of education. On the morning of Sept. 14, 1936, there entered the school a varied group of bewildered students. But the bewilderment soon disappeared and it was found that they were one of the most versatile and ambitious classes ever to enter the school. This was proven at the first class meeting when breaking all precedents they voted to collect monthly dues to aid them three years hence. Their intelligence was further shown by the choice of their leaders of their Freshman year. The officers chosen were: Floyd Ashworth, President; Frank Asp in, Vice-President; Eunice Sylvia, Secretary; and Clifford Flanagan, Treasurer. Under their guidance we felt that we could go far. Then, into the intricacies of school life and studies. Life went alon g smoothly, and all became engrossed in school activities, the out- standing among these being the fraternities. How well we remember the Rush Week and Initiation Week, how well we remember the ministering of the various degrees. Ah yes, it is a swell memory. Then on May 7, 1937, came the glorious social of our class, this was the First Annual Spring Hop, sponsored by us and held at the New Bedford Country Club. This also was a forward step in the right direction. Our first year ended with the annual final exams, but we all came through with flying colors and turned our eyes toward our second year. Once again we returned fresh and ready to take up our tasks, some new ' , others old, but all interesting and educational. We also changed our officers to give governing to others who deserved it. Those to guide our second year destinies were President, Joseph Dias; Vice-President, Louis Pacheco; Secretary, Gordon Ogden; Treasurer, Donald Smith. Although our class as a whole was comparatively inactive, due to the stress of school studies, individuals attained much notoriety in fields of endeavor: Baseball, Basketball, Golf, Soccer, Tennis, and Debating, all served to put Textile on the Map of Outstanding Collegiate Achievements. The teams were ably coached by the athletic members of the faculty. Time flew and once again we stumbled through 34 Fabricator, 1939 final exams onto a well earned vacation. Some of the students spent their short time away from actual studies, in the plants related to the textile industries, and gained a wealth of practical knowledge in this manner. So we entered upon the final year determined more than ever to make a lasting impression on the school blotter of studies and activities. After the class elections, which found at the helm of our senior ship. President, Donald Smith; Vice-President. Louis Pacheco; Secretary, Alfred Mikus; Treasurer, Gordon Ogden, we sponsored a series of dances which netted us a pretty penny to go towards our commencement expenses. The climax of this series was the Third Annual Senior Spring Hop, held this year at the New Bedford Hotel Ballroom. Gay was the crowd with the beau- tifully gowned members of the fair sex, and their gallant escorts, and once again was chalked up another social success for the class of ' 39. Then came the duties of organizing the year book and under the capable direction of Clifford Flanagan, this beautiful and sensational book makes its appearance with a bountiful gain in the educational and financial attainment. Then came the crowning event of the three happy years, the Senior Banquet and Prom held at the Beautiful Silver Moon on picturesque Buzzards Bay by the Cape Cod Canal. Soft lights, sweet music, and canoes on the bay make this a memory that will linger long after others have faded. Then came the graduation, and before a crowded auditorium we became the first class to graduate in the dignified dress of cap and gowns. Now with dip- lomas in hand we can face defiantly even this unsettled world. Let us look back on the individual accomplishments of the members of our class. The school will long remember the class ' three-letter men, Elton Mann. J. Edward Houghton, Joseph Dias, Albert Anselmo and Stanley Pelczarski. Other athetes whom the team will miss are, Sam Craven, Alex Patykula, Bill Armitage, Jerry Aillery, John Harrington, Herb Briggs, Dave Braiden, Joe Rose, Scott Whiteher, and John Libby. The debating team will also lose its organizers, Cliff Flanagan and Henry Taylor, also Fred Geary and George Duckworth. We are proud to have contributed so many fine athletes and speakers to the activity annals of the school. Now as we stand at the parting of the ways, some will continue their education at other institutes of knowledge, while others will give their all to the world ' s industries. Let us always keep in mind the traditions and principles, remember always that " Tech " is the school that is different. Who was it that said, " It is not what you do, but how well that you do it.

Eskimo — What would you say, darling, if I told you that I pushed my dog team for 1,000 miles through ice and snow just to tell you I love you. Eskimoette — I would say that was a lot of mush. You can tell what stage a Textile student is in by the way he signs his name. For instance: Freshman — Bill Smith Sophomore — William Smith Junior — W. Algernon Smith Senior — William A. Smith Graduate — W. A. Smith Job Hunter — Smith Waiter (to barbarian who tucks his napkin under his chin) — Sorry, no shampoos with the dinner. Mr. Gourley has defined a Bull and a Bear.

THE INTER FRATERNITY COUNCIL At the school this year the interest in fraternities and in fraternity affairs seemed to warrant the establishment of some sort of coordinating body to oversee and guide the brotherhoods to better relations with each other. Several of the students sug- gested and drew up a provisional constitution for an Inter-Fraternity Council in October, 1938. Both fraternities enthusiastically accepted the idea and the con- stitution, and in early November the first meeting under the constitution was held. Two members of the faculty, Mr. Edward L. Murphy, Jr., and Mr. John Fawcett. were asked to represent both the alumni and the faculty on this board. They gave very graciously of their time and influence in order that the embryo council should have an excellent start in the world of fraternity affairs. The constitution provides for the appointment of three councilors to represent each fraternity, the president of each chapter to serve ex-officio, and gives power of regulation of social affairs, initiations, etc., to the council subject to " advice and consent " by the different chapters. The first members of the Council, other than the faculty advisers were as follows: Mr. Fred Geary, as President of Beta Chapter, Phi Psi. Mr. Louis N. Pacheco, President of Delta Chapter, Delta Kappa Phi. Mr. Milton Kramer, as President of Sigma Phi Tau. Mr. Donald T. Smith, of Phi Psi. Mr. Edward F. Mullaly, Jr., of Phi Psi. Mr. John J. Libby, of Delta Kappa Phi. Mr. Leslie Tripp, of Delta Kappa Phi. At the first meeting of the council it was decided that no permanent chairman should be elected and that a temporary chairman should be chosen to supervise the meetings each month. A joint meeting of the two fraternities was held under the auspices of the council and some small measure of success was attained in several unimportant fields, but to its proponents the first year of the council was a disappointment. It was perhaps too much to expect that all, or even any, of the important recommendations should receive serious consideration from the brotherhoods during its initial year. As for next year the councilors who remain hope to join with the new delegates and renew the efforts to overcome the setbacks caused by the immature birth of this idea which is still one of the best to come the way of the New Bedford Textile School. 44 Fabricator, 1939 Organized 191 Front Row — M.

Beta Chapter experienced a very active 1938-39 season, inducting several new members and enjoying numerous informal ' ' smokers " in the fraternity house. The Third Degree and Banquet at the Hotel Myles Standish in Boston was a very elaborate affair, enjoyed by all the members who attended. Beta sponsored several dances this season in addition to their new idea of Turkey Raffles. The Annual Phi Psi Convention was held March 31 in Atlanta, Ga., attended by Fred Geary and Jerry Aillery representing Beta at the Formal Meetings. The 1938- 39 season was climaxed by the Farewell Banquet and Dance which proved a fitting conclusion for a very active season. Fabricator, 1939 47 Second Row — R. Connors, S. Pelczarski. R. Poloquin.

The new brothers who were initiated into the chapter were: Julien Desjardins, Robert Long, and Malcolm Frazier. These men added much to the already outstanding chapter. The officers who were elected to guide the fraternity for the fraternal year were: Consul. Louis Pacheco, Jr.; Vice Consul, John J. Libby; Custodian, Harry T. Perkins, Jr. ; Scribe, Scott Whitcher, Jr. ; Annator, Leslie Tripp. This year an Inter-Fraternity Council was established, and the Dekes were represented on the council by John Libby, Louis Pacheco and Leslie Tripp. This council did much to promote inter-fraternity relationship. The national convention was held in Lowell on May 5 and 6. Delta was exceptionally well represented. Many fond memories and shadows will always be connected with the ' 39 convention. Delta chapter provided a goodly number of the school ' s athletes with Pacheco, Libby, Pelczarski, Pieraccini, Tripp, Whitcher, Desjardins and Frazier giving their all for the Alma Mater. The Deke Volley Ball Team proved to be too much for the faculty on the Saturday morning contests. We wish the faculty better luck next year. We wish to thank Mr. Edward L. Murphy, Jr., for his time and effort as our faculty adviser in fraternal affairs and his guidance in the inter-fraternity council. The council had a most efficient and enjoyable year and the graduating brothers extend their vows of brethrenship to the present or future brothers. HIGH LIGHTS AND SHADOWS Sailboating on the S.S.

Altogether, it looked as if " Tech " would have a strong team with the ex- ception of the pitching department, as there were only Winiarski, a veteran, and Dias, who had seen a little service the previous season. However, by the time the first game rolled around, Coach Thomas Gourley had a strong, colorful team whipped into shape. The team rounded out to be: Gula behind the bat, Babbitt at first, Barry at second, Mann at short, Patykula at third, and the outer garden was taken care of by Ryan, Presby, Mikus, and Zubricki. The pitchers were Winiarski, Dias, and Libby. APRIL 22, 1938 NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING vs. TECH The New Bedford baseball team opened the 1938 campaign by suffering a defeat at the hands of a strong New- port team by a score of 3-1. Textile ' s lone counter came in the fifth when Patykula walked, Mann was hit by a pitched ball and Barry singled to score Patykula. The Sailors ' first score came in the third, when Rip Chirdon blasted a long home run to right center and scored behind one of his mates, who had reached first on an error. Newport scored again in the eighth, on an out- field error and a long double. Dias pitched well and kept eleven hits well scattered, while Newport ' s Slim Grey allowed " Tech " but 5 bingles. Barry led the Millmen with two hits in four appearances at the plate, while Paty- kula, at the hot corner, starred on the defense. APRIL 27, 7938 TECH vs. WENTWORTH INSTITUTE The Millmen proved to be no match for the crack aggregation representing Wentworth. The trip to Boston was marred by the 11-2 defeat, due mainly to needless errors. The Millmen ' s bats reaped in their brace of runs in the fifth inning on a walk, Barry ' s double and two errors, and altogether totaled but three hits all afternoon. Wentworth scored five runs in the first inning and therefore " Tech " was never in the run- 50 Third Row — S. Whitcher, L. Winiarski, J. Menard, J. Libby, S. Craven. Second Roiv — A.

Fabricator, 1939 APRIL 29, 1938 DURFEE TEXTILE vs. TECH The " Tech " team finally showed their real power and broke into the win col- umn with a decisive victory of 12-2 over Durfee Textile. It looked like a real ball game up to the fourth inning and then the New Bedford boys sent five runs across the plate and ten men to bat before the Durfee players could retire the side. The game lasted only seven innings as both coaches agreed to call it a day at that time. The Durfee stickers could do nothing against the speed of Joe Dias, who al- lowed only seven hits. The team played errorless ball with Barry and Mann handling 15 chances around the key- stone sack without the semblance of an eiror. Jack Ryan led the hitters with three hits in four appearances at the plate. MAY 2, 1938 VOCATIONAL vs. TECH Textile lost another ball game at the hands of a scrappy Voke team by a score of 9-7. The first four innings, it was nip and tuck with the score see- sawing back and forth, and being seven up as the fifth inning opened. Voke scored the winning run in the fifth and put the game on ice with another counter in the ninth. Barry, the Millmen ' s second baseman, led the hitters with two singles and a double, while Patykula handled seven chances perfectly at the hot corner. MAY 5, 1938 BECKER COLLEGE vs. TECH Behind the steady pitching of Wini- arski, " Tech " defeated Becker 5-2 in a well played game. Becker ' s 12 hits were well scattered and they had eight men left on the bases. The Millmen jumped into an early lead as the result of a long home run to deep center field by Jack Ryan with a teammate scoring ahead of him. Becker tied the score in their half of the sixth with two runs. " Tech " , in their half of the sixth, matched these two runs to take the lead, never to be headed again. The fifth run came in the eighth and the game was in the bag. No Textile sticker got more than one hit, but the orchids go to Ryan for his first inning four- bagger. Babbitt, at first base, handled 11 chances with ease, making several hard ones look easy. MAY 9, 1938 TECH vs. NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING The Navy bunched five hits and three passes in the first inning to score seven runs and adding three more in the fifth to hammer out a 10-2 victory over " Tech " . The Textiles scored in the first on a pass to Mikus and Barry ' s double. Again in the ninth Mikus walked and scored on Ryan ' s safe blow. Ryan again led the hitters with three hits, and also stole the fielding honors by gathering in four hard hit balls out in deep center field. MAY 17, 1938 LOWELL TEXTILE vs. TECH The local Millmen with their timely hitting and great defensive play com- bined with the six-hit flinging of Wini- arski defeated the visiting Lowell Tex- tile nine by a score of 5-1. Lowell scored their lone marker in the second inning on a pass, a fielder ' s choice, and an error. Barry singled Presby home in the first, and in the second, Mikus scored on Ryan ' s single to put " Tech " in the lead, which was never taken away from them again throughout the contest. Patykula, with three hits, took the batting honors while Barry stole the fielding honors, handling six chances perfectly at second base. Winiarski worked smoothly and had reserve to tighten in the pinches. MAY 21, 1938 TECH vs. DURFEE TEXTILE The local Millmen swept the season series with their Border City rivals by earning a 7-6 victory in a very closely fought contest. The Durfee aggrega- tion took the lead in the second inning on a triple and a wild pitch. The locals scored three runs in the third only to have Durfee score two more and tie the score. " Tech " stepped their total runs up to seven, n the fourth Durfee rallied to score three runs, and Fabricator, 1939 51 it was only the good fielding of Paty- kula, Barry and Mann, which brought the rally to an end and thus protected New Bedford ' s 7-6 lead. Ryan was the top sticker for the local aggregation, while the fielding honors were evenly divided throughout the whole team. MAY 24, 1938 TECH vs. LOWELL TEXTILE By jumping into an early six run lead, the Lowell Textile nine was able to coast to a 9-4 victory over the New Bedford team. " Tech ' s " runs came in pairs: two in the fourth on Ryan ' s single, Patykula ' s triple and Gula ' s single; two in the fifth on singles by Babbitt, Winiarski and Mikus. Gula led New Bedford at the plate while Mikus, in right, provided the thrills in the field. JUNE 1, 1938 TECH vs. VOCATIONAL " Tech " closed its season by being edged 4-3 by Voke in a long drawn out 11-inning struggle full of thrills. " Tech " held a 3-0 lead and seemed to have the game on ice until Voke ral- lied in the eighth and ninth innings to tie the score. In the eleventh a single, a sacrifice, and Procek ' s single gave Voke the winning marker. Not one inning went by but there were men on the bases due to passes, hits, or mis- cues in the field. Ryan again stole the batting honors, while Barry and Mann, " Tech ' s " key- stone combination, Were tops in the field. DROPS IN THE BUCKET None of the players will forget Presby ' s balancing act up in Lowell when he nearly went down a steep bank while chasing a foul ball. Joe Dias still gets a kick out of tell- ing about the time he nearly " beaned " Coach Gourley in a practice session. Many times the players on the visit- ing teams had to be told that Sam Craven was not " Tech ' s " bat boy. In- cidentally, in a practice game with New Bedford High, Sam ' s single scored two runs which proved to be the margin of victory. Many had the idea that if " Elky " Mann kept picking those line drives out of the air, he would pick himself up out in left field sooner or later. In spite of the fact that the team lost two more games than they won, they scored a total of 48 runs against their opponents ' 57 runs. INDIVIDUAL BATTING AND FIELDING AVERAGES AB BH AV. PO A E AV.

SOCCER This year ' s soccer team turned out to be an all-veteran eleven, well re- enforced bv competent substitutes. Coach Beardsworth looked forward to a highly successful season and was not wholly disappointed. The " Tech " team was always righting with the " breaks " against them. If it had not been for this, the Textilites would probably have had a more impressive record. As it was, they won 5 and lost 3. They de- feated Bridgewater Teachers ' College, Tabor Academy, Brown Jayvees, Har- vard Jayvees, and Durfee Textile, once. They lost to Durfee Textile and Voke twice. The members of the team: Babbitt, in goal: Gula and Carlin, fullbacks; Dias, Patykula, and Houghton, half- backs; Craven, outside right; Whalley, inside right; Anselmo, center forward; Pelczarski, inside left, and Mann, out- side left. Reserves included Frey and Flanagan, halfbacks and Whewell, Ramsbottom and Curry, forwards. OCT. 3, 1938 TECH vs. BRIDGEWATER TEACH- ERS COLLEGE " Tech " opened its soccer season with a 2-1 victory over Bridgewater. They scored twice in the first half, the goals being produced from the toes of Pel- czarski and Whalley. The second half, " Tech " played defensively and kept the Bridgewater booters well bottled up. The Teachers ' only score came on a penalty kick. Patykula was the key man in the Mill- men ' s defense and ably assisted by Frey and Gula. Whewell, a newcomer, also showed up well when given his chance in the game. OCT. 19, 1938 VOCATIONAL vs. TECH After a hard fought battle, " Tech " bowed to Voke 1-0, as the results of a fourth period counter. The score came just after the start of the fourth period when Voke ' s outside man dropped a corner kick in front of the " Tech " goal and the ball was pushed into the net before Babbitt could get his hands on it. The Millmen kept the ball in Voke territory a great deal of the time but Voke ' s defense kept " Tech ' s " forwards bottled up, thus preventing a score. Patykula was again the outstanding man on the field, although Babbitt de- serves credit for his performance in Fabricator 9 1939 53 goal, in spite of the fact that one shot got by him. OCT. 22, 1938 TECH vs. TABOR ACADEMY " Tech " hooters won their second game in three starts by topping Tabor 2-0. In the first three minutes of play, Pelczarski beat the Tabor goalie with a shot to give the Millmen a lead to work on. The rest of the first half, the Textilites kept the ball in Tabor terri- tory trying hard to score again, but the Tabor goalie tried harder and prevented any more scoring. In the second half Mann drove one past the Tabor goalie to put the game on ice. Gula and Patykula were the main cogs in " Tech ' s " defense, while Whewell and Mann stood out in the forward line. OCT. 28, 1938 TECH vs. BROWN J.V. The Millmen chalked up another victory beating the Brown J.V. 1-0, the result of Whalley ' s shot into the net in the second period. The " Tech " hoot- ers fired shot after shot at the Brown goal only to have the goalie get in the way and prevent further scores. Babbitt, Textile goalie, handled but two shots all afternoon. Patykula and Houghton did yeoman work in defending the Millers ' goal while Whalley led the attack of the forward line. NOV. 8, 1938 TECH vs. HARVARD J.V. In a drizzling rain, " Tech " beat out a 2-0 victory over the Harvard J.V. Club for their fourth win of the sea- son. In the second period Pelczarski poked one by the Harvard goalie and in the third period Mann shook the net for a score after receiving a perfect pass from Craven. Babbitt turned in a fine bit of work in goal handling many shots from the Harvard hooters. Houghton, Craven and Mann were the outstanding players in Textile ' s victory. NOV. 15, 1938 TECH vs. VOCATIONAL Voke won the city schoolboy cham- pionship by defeating Textile 3-1. Voke tallied three times in the first half, the last two coming within three minutes of each other in the second period. In the third period, " Tech " came to life and Whewell crossed one in front of the Voke goal. After a short scrimmage, Pelczarski poked it into the net. The Textile rooters were not able to capi- talize on the few opportunities they did have and thus 3-1 was the final score. Gula was by far the outstanding player in the Millmen ' s defense while Houghton also turned in a commenda- ble performance. NOV. 2, 1938 TECH vs. DURFEE TEXTILE Durfee Textile " booted out " a 4-1 victory over the New Bedford team due to a continuous hard-driving attack throughout the game. Houghton scored the locals ' only counter after Frey had given him a setup in front of the Durfee goal. The Fall River team out- played the New Bedford aggregation all through the game, their forwards being quicker on the ball and their de- fense men more sure footed. Houghton and Patykula are the only New Bedfordites worthy of credit for their performance. NOV. 18, 1938 DURFEE TEXTILE vs. N. B. TECH In the last game of the season, the New Bedford Millmen defeated their arch rivals by a score of 2-0. In the first half, Mann crossed the ball in front of the Durfee goal and Whalley made his shot good to give his team the lead. In the second half, Patykula dropped a kick in front of the Durfee goal and Anselmo shook the rigging for the second marker. New Bedford Textiles ' defense was a stone wall which Durfee could not penetrate and the New Bedford forward line kept the 54 Fabricator, 1939 Durfee defense on their toes all the time. Although each member of the New Bedford team turned in a fine perform- ance, Sam Craven, diminutive outside right, was the most brilliant player on the field. MISKICKS Sam Craven, the mighty mite of the team, showed us this season that size does not mean anything in this game of soccer. Anybody watching the " " Tech " hoot- ers practising would get the impression that they were playing English rugby instead of American soccer. Carl Carlin was the warrior of the squad and scored many a knockdown during the season. Wonder if Gene Gula eats Wheaties to get all of the power he has to send the ball on those high and long rides. Houghton may be a quiet " Deacon " in school, but you ' d never think him the same fellow on the soccer field. In the Tabor game, Sam Craven spent a great deal of time on the ground . . . resting. In the eight games, " Tech " scored a total of i I goals against their oppo- nents ' 9 goals Fabricator, 1939 55 BASKETBALL SEASON OF 1939 The call went out for basketball and on looking over the aspirants who re- ported, it was easy to see that Textile would have a fast team and if they got off to a good start would enjoy a suc- cessful season. An appreciable amount of height among the fellows of first team caliber was the only drawback. Coach Szulik whipped his charges into shape and the team was made up of Houghton, Aillery, Mikus, Hilditch, Mann, Anselmo, Pelczarski, Dias, Ku- waski and Rose. JAN. 7, 1939 TECH vs. HARVARD MEDICAL In a free scoring game, " Tech " lost their opener to the taller and more ex- perienced Harvard Medical quintet by a score of 56-45. The Harvard five piled up a good lead in the second period and were able to coast to an easy victory. Aillery and Mann led the scorers with 12 and 13 points resp ectively, while Hilditch, a newcomer, played a great floor game, and found the hoop for six points. JAN. 11, 1939 ALUMNI vs. TECH " Tech " chalked up their first win, defeating a strong alumni 31-30. The teams were closely matched the first half, at the end of which the Millmen led 13-10. The Alumni took the lead in the third quarter and the Textilites did not get it again until the final minutes of play when they scored their winning points. Mikus was " Tech ' s " outstanding of- fensive player, scoring 11 points, while Hilditch and Pelczarski turned in a fine defensive performance. JAN. 14, 1939 BECKER COLLEGE vs. TECH Becker College proved to be too strong for the " Tech " quintet and trounced the Millmen 57-27. The Tex- tilites started off in fine fashion, leading 11-6 at the end of the first quarter, but then the Becker five started to click and rolled up the points to walk off with the honors. Mikus netted 9 points to lead the " Tech " scorers who played a stalwart Third Row — S. Michelson, B. Kuwaski, N. Hilditch, J. Dias, F. Geary, Mgr., J. Aillery, D. Stanley, H. Briggs, M. Frazier. Second Row — S. Craven, J. Rose, A. Mikus, E. Mann, J. Houghton, A. Anselmo. Front Row — P. Riley, S. Pelczarski, T. Blecharczyk. 56 Fabricator, 1939 defensive game. Aillery and Houghton played great offensive games until they were forced out via the foul route. JAN. 18, 1939 DURFEE TEXTILE vs. TECH Due to loose playing in the second half, " Tech " lost to their Border City rivals 46-34. The locals had it all their own way the first period but the second quarter found the Durfee quintet click- ing and the rest of the game found the score seesawing back and forth. The third quarter proved to be the downfall for the Millmen as they fell too far behind to match strides with Durfee in the fourth quarter when they put on a desperate offensive drive. Hilditch led the scorers with 10 points, while Aillery and Houghton turned in some great laborwork. JAN. 20, 1939 TECH vs. NEWPORT NAVAL TRAIN- ING STATION The Millmen suffered their fourth de- feat in five starts due to a third period scoring spree by the Sailors who coasted to a 58-35 victory. The Naval quintet did not start to pull away until just before the half and then came their big third period. " Tech " could not overtake their opponents in the fourth canto although they outscored them. Hilditch and Mann were " Tech ' s " only consistent scorers, dropping in 8 and 12 points respectively. FEB. 5, 1939 TECH vs. ST. ANSELM COLLEGE St. Anselm, due to a third period rally, defeated the Millmen 41-34 in an action-packed game. The " Tech " quintet led until the third quarter when St. Anselm dropped 15 points through the strings. The Textilites fought hard but were unable to overtake their oppo- nents. Hilditch was by far the Millmen ' s outstanding player, both offensively and defensively. Millmen, Houghton and FEB. 8. 1939 ST. ANSELM COLLEGE vs. TECH In their return match with the col- legians, " Tech " was completely out- classed and lost 62-40. The St. Anselm quintet put on a display of brilliant passwork and shot with deadly accuracy to practically burn the strings off the hoop to roll up the points and coast to an easy triumph For the Mann were the only ones who were able to find the hoop with any consistency scoring 8 and 10 points respectively. Houghto n also turned in a fine floor game. FEB. 11, 1939 TECH vs. DURFEE TEXTILE By virtue of a 39-36 victory, the Millmen scored an upset over the high- ly rated Durfee quintet. The New Bed- ford five did not click until the third period and then they put on a brilliant offensive drive to tie the score and go ahead to win. Houghton and Dias led the scorers with 12 points apiece while Aillery and Mann turned in a fine floor game. FEB. 15, 1939 TECH vs. ST. GEORGE PREP Combining fine team play and un- canny accuracy for the hoop, the Tex- tile five showed the St. George quintet their heels and rolled to a 35-29 vic- tory. At one time St. George tied the score but the Millmen put on the pres- sure and scored 11 points to St. George ' s five. Dias led the offensive drives scoring 13 points, while Hilditch played a fine defensive game. Houghton also de- serves credit for his great floorwork. FEB. 18, 1939 TECH vs. BECKER COLLEGE The Millmen were victims of a scor- ing rampage put on by the Becker five and were swamped 94-34. In the sec- ond, third and fourth quarters, Becker scored 23, 24 and 27 points respective- Fabricator, 1939 57 ly, so that the Millmen were never in the running after the first period. Houghton was the only Textile play- er able to find the hoop, scoring 11 points. FEB. 22, 1939 SALEM TEACHERS COLLEGE vs. TECH Playing a fine caliber of ball, the Millmen scored a 39-33 victory over the Teachers College. In the third and fourth quarters both teams put on scorching offensive drives, but the Tex- tilites got the better of the bargain and gained the margin of victory. Dias was high man scoring 12 points. Houghton turned in a fine floor game, creating many openings and feeding the ball to his mates to score. FEB. 23, 1939 TECH vs. VOCATIONAL Due to a great offensive drive in the final minutes of play, Voke edged out the Textile quintet 39-35. The game was fast and hard-fought from start to finish. At the start of the fourth canto the Millmen held a slim two point ad- vantage but were outscored by the Voke quintet. Mikus led the scorers with 14 points while Houghton and Mann were strong defensively. FEB. 25, 1939 NEWPORT NAVAL TRAINING STA- TION vs. TECH Due to a third period rally by the Sailors, in which they dropped shots in from all angles, the Newport five de- feated the Textilites 44-36. " Tech " led up to this third quarter and fought hard in the fourth canto to undo the damage but were unsuccessful and thus had to take the defeat. Mikus and Mann led the scorers with seven points apiece, while Hilditch and Aillery were strong defensively. MAR. 1, 1939 VOCATIONAL vs. TECH The Textile quintet climaxed their ' 39 season by edging their arch rivals 34-33 in a fast, hair-raising contest. The Mill- men led all the way, but in the fourth quarter, Voke put on a desperate of- fensive drive and came within one point of the Textilites in the final sec- onds of play. Here Houghton put on a one-man freezing act, dribbling the ball back and forth until the final whistle blew. Houghton took the scoring honors with 15 points while Hilditch was a bulwark on the defense. Mann turned in a fine floor game creating many openings for his mates. INDIVIDUAL SCORING FLD. FL. TOT.

The team won their first match de- feating New Bedford High School 3-2. Displaying excellent tennis the Millmen then swamped Becker College, Bridge- water State Teachers College, and Fairaven High School, and shut out New Bedford High 5-0, to sweep the series with their city rivals. After a hard-fought match, Tech met their first defeat of the season (4-3), at the hands of Durfee High, who sported an un- usually good team for a high school. Textile got back in the win column against Bridgewater in their next match, thus sweeping the series with the teach- ers. However, in a return match with Durfee High at Fall River, the Millmen showed a complete reversal of form from the fine tennis they had played all season and bowed to their rivals 6-1, E. Tripp scoring Tech ' s only point by virtue of a 6-3, 6-3 triumph over his TENNIS-1938 opponent. By winning 3-2 in the sec- ond meeting, Textile swept its series with Fairhaven High in what proved to be the final match of the season for the locals. Another fine season was at a finish for the Richardson coached clan. El- bert Tripp, who was by far the best racquet wielder Textile ever had, made twelve points while losing three, and was topped only by Nelson Kessell who made fourteen and lost the same num- ber. Arnold Aspden was next in line with six wins and one loss, while the others followed closely behind him. The team was an exceptionally fine one, losing only to Durfee while winning seven games, and having another rained out. Maroon jackets with grey leather emblems were presented to the follow- ing players: E. Tripp, N. Kessell, L. Tripp, L. Pacheco, A. Aspden, and A. Anselmo, all of whom will be eligible next year except E. Tripp and A. Asp- den. Arthur Coe and George Curry, who played but did not receive jackets will also be back. The Record— Won 7; Lost 2.

Starting the season with a new deal in the coaching department the debaters embarked upon their most am- bitious schedule. The new coach, Atty. Leo Adlesohn, divided his squad into a varsity and a junior varsity team. The varsity to handle the collegiate debates and the JV ' s to care for the high school opposition. The teams were composed of the vet- erans Clifford Flanagan and Henry Taylor, and newcomers, Wilbur Delano, George Duckworth and Alden Taylor. Fred Geary was also a member at the start of the year, but was forced to drop out because of other activities. The varsity opened its season in Vermont when a team composed of Flanagan, Delano, and A. Taylor dropped a close 2 to 1 decision to Middlebury College. Their next encounter was against a strong Boston College team, no deci- sion was rendered, but " Tech " proved itself a worthy opponent. The team was the same one that competed against Middlebury. Worcester Tech, our next match, was also a no-decision debate and the team of Flanagan and H. Tay- lor gave a fine account of itself. De- bates are pending with Becker College, Durfee and Lowell Textile and the Uni- versity of Ottawa. The JV ' s on the other hand are hav- ing a bit of tough luck with the judges, dropping close decisions to New Bed- ford and Dartmouth High Schools. The up and coming debaters on this team were Duckworth, A. Taylor, Delano and Geary. Future debates for the second team include: Sacred Heart Academy, Rogers High of Newport, Barnstable High and N. B. Vocational. Debating at Textile once again took a forward step, and with a wealth of material left its prospects are very bright. It will, however, lose its found- ers, Flanagan and H. Taylor, and also George Duckworth, but it now is an established activity and will carry on itself. 60 Fabricator, 1939 r i HE Calco Chemical Company, Inc., has for many years been recognized as one of the outstanding producers of essential Intermediates which go into the manufacture of a wide range of Dyestuffs.

Revere Textile Print Rolls A New Bedford Product Famous for a Hundred Years For more than a century the Taunton-New Bedford division of Revere Copper and Brass Incorporated has been making textile print rolls. As a result of this long experience the Revere organization is in a unique position to know and understand practical textile printing problems and how to meet them with rolls best adapted to give efficient, economical service. Textile print roll requirements are severely exacting. The copper must be homogeneous, free from imperfections, impurities, hard spots, strata, blow holes. It must be evenly, pre- cisely tempered, sufficiently ductile to be " picked up " by the engraver ' s tool, yet suffi- ciently hard to enable the edges of the engrav- ing to stand, without becoming rounded or burred, through long service. The rolls must be perfectly concentric; they must be straight within close tolerance limits; they must be strong enough to drive a heavy printing cylinder by friction; tough enough to withstand repeated pushing on and off man- drell ; and must have the smoothness and tex- ture required to prevent the edges of the engraving from being eroded by the " doctor " blades. The standard, most economical, roll is the solid wall copper roll. Rolls of this type can be repeatedly re-engraved, the old engraving being turned off. An average size solid wall copper roll should permit at least 25 such turn-offs, thus affording 26 new engraving surfaces during its life. Also available are cheaper rolls, " re-built " by drawing new copper tubes over cores consist- ing of old turned-down rolls. However, these are more likely to cause trouble, and in the end are definitely more expensive than the solid wall rolls. Revere specialists with many years of experi- ence in this field are at your service to assist you in specifying and obtaining rolls best adapted to serve your individual requirements. Revere ability to render capable service of this kind is perhaps best attested by the fact that a large proportion of all textile print rolls in use throughout the United States today are of Revere make. tO ND£o By Revere Copper and Brass Incorporated A CHALLENGE MET SINCE 1865 Since 1865, each new demand for better knitting machines has been met by Scott Williams promptly and efficiently.
