RICHARD FARNSWORTH HOYT MRS. ELIZABETH SPRAGUE TABER ELIZABETH SPRAGUE TABER N August 22nd, 1791 in Rochester, Massachusetts, which then included Sippican, later Marion, Elizabeth Sprague Pitcher was born. - Her par- ents were extremely poor: and tasks began early for this only daughter of the house although she had live brothers, two of whom later became famous sea captains and another, a large plantation owner of the South. At the tender age of fourteen she began teaching in a small school which was built' at the lower end of Main Street. She was a woman of high principles and morals: and, although her teachings were very strict and stern, her pupils have often remarked in their after-lives that they were valued very highly. Later in life she married Stephen Taber who afterwards became one of New Bedford's leading whaling ship owners. By this marriage she had three children, but all of them died under Hve years of age. In 1862 her husband died at the age of eighty-five years. Now she was both childless and husbandless, so she turned again to her old work of education. She erected the Library some ten years after her husband's death, and some time later she conceived the idea of an academy and founded Tabor in 1876. It was her request that the word be given the Biblical spelling, "Tabor." After the main building of the Academy was built, she had Tabor Hall erected for the principal and his family, and a suite for her own use. She gave Union Hall and the Congregational Chapel to the town of Marion, and in 1888 she died at the good old age of ninety-seven years. She also left money with which the Town Hall, in 1890, and the Music Hall, in 1891, were erected. In her will she left to Marion a village improvement fund and endowments for all of the buildings which she had had built, to keep them going indefinitely. V Since Mrs. Taber outlived all of her brothers and as not one of them, peculiar as it may seem, had a child who lived to be more than five years of age, all the wealth of the whole family came to her. Her husband was very wealthy: and a brother, Theophilus, a plantation owner, who was killed by one of his slaves left her his property. In addition to this she inherited the fortunes of her two sea-captain brothers, James Scott and John. We, who have attended Tabor or lived in Marion, owe a great deal to this stately old lady. She did not seem to care so much for luxury as for the welfare and education of humanity. May we always remember her with respect.

Lillard became headmaster of Tabor, he foresaw the possi- bilities of the waterfront and established the school somewhat on a naval basis. I-le also saw the wisdom of having a student governing board. and in keeping with this nautical character of the school the students chosen to act as chief officers were classed as Mates. Theirs have been responsible positions, Selected as leaders and placed at the head of the student body the mates deserve a substantial share of the credit for the high standard of spirit and efficiency which has been prevalent from the beginning. The first students to hold these offices were chosen in the school year, l9l9-l92O. They Were: Edgar Parker Dunlaevy, first mate: Ralph Andrew Potter, second mate, and Charles Washburn, third mate. These boys established a standard which has been consistently equalled by succeeding mates. To Lillard, Chandler, and Soule we are indebted for their fine leadership and generous school spirit. ,, Q41 gli? ..

All with weak hearts ana' flat chests imbibe freelyj YEAR 1966 AVING at last reached my goal, the editorship of the world's most powerful radio newspaper, The Flash. I determined to take enough time from my work to look up my old classmates at Tabor and, if possible, to summon them to a grand reunion to be held in the now thriving metropolis of Mafion where our school days were spent. Marion, as you probably know, is the most famous watering place the universe boasts of. The thousands of miles of balloon walk and floating amusement parks attract millions of dollars and people to Marion each year. I resolved to put my fastest fleet of flying reporters on the job. These men are fast workers. Before accepting them I give them a simple test to determine their speed. They stand fully attired twelve feet from a bed. and the electric light is turned out. If they are in bed, wearing only pajamas before the wires in the bulb cool off, they get a job. It took but a second to give them instructions, and then they were off to comb the ocean's bottom or the very top of the sky for their men. Suddenly my mental telepathy set began to bark. It was one of the planes that had been forced down by a gang of air pirates in New York. The pilot was brought before the chief, who resided in a most palatial dirigible above the city, and forced to tell his story. Looking about him the reporter was surprised to see that the band was made up solely of beautiful young girls with their hair bobbed according to the latest dictates of fashion. Then the regal chief stepped down from his throne: and as he did so, the girls bowed low and filed out of the chamber. Who was this masked person? He removed his mask before my man, and who was it but the Old Bobbed Hair Bandit we used to know at school, "Russ" Siglerl Here he was living a life of ease and comfort, a modern Robin Hood. Before the reporter left, 'fRuss" presented him to his beautiful Queen whom he called Nol-I Here the message broke off and the identity of this wonderful Queen was still a mystery. -agi 3 45..- FORE'N'AFT 1926 Q04 1 ,. , . .. .. ,fm K Kin' One of the planes had reached the distant jungles of Africa in its search. Sure enough we were not to be disappointed by his not finding one for whom he was looking. As he was gliding over the forest, he witnessed a very queer sight. Below him was a little man apparently taking motion pictures of some wild animals: but as soon as an animal appeared to move, the man would rush towards it shouting and gesticulating wildly: then the beast would be- come quiet again. The aviator had made a remarkable discovery. He had found the world's most novel hunter and explorer. The man never uses any sort of weapons against the wild animals but depends only on his courage. wind, and remarkable voice. As reported, his voice has never failed to subdue the most ferocious animal. You know he was forced into exile because of the dire results of his vocal organs on humans. You've guessed it! It is "Chuck" Faye, the former Tabor cheer-leader. Of course you've heard about "Wally" Veazie and "Bastile" Austin? No! Well, they got together several years ago and started the snappiest little orchestra you ever saw or heard. They gained world-wide fame by converting the savage head-hunters of Arabia to heart-breakers. They have made it 3. success and now have hundreds of "Syncopated Sevens" playing for them: in fact "Bully-Boy" Bausmith refuses to allow any other to play on his magnificent aero-steamship lines. The last time I saw "Bully" was in Paris, on his latest honeymoon: this time it was a famous American prima donna. Just got a report on two more. These men were located in Boston. Remember how "Ed" Butterfield used to star on Stunt Night? He has worked himself up from a rope puller to one of the leading actors and playwrights of the day. He is now playing in a play of his own composition, The Lady in Pink. I was thunderstruck when I read the information on "The Little Kyke." He is running one of those little shops with three gold balls hanging outside. flf you know what I mean.J Who would ever have believed that "Art" Howard would end there? But he must be doing well for he financed the newest war against the non-union bootleggers in Abyssinia. Trust old Alan Gary to get mixed up in some trouble: he was too good at school. The plane that reached Mars found out that Schumaker has been found guilty of selling the unsuspecting Martians Florida lots and on top of that was teaching bridge as a side line for five hundred jelly-beans a lesson. I know that Woods was on this end of the plan. He built a house on a raft, covered the raft with fake palms and flowers, and called it a lot. As soon as he heard that one patch had been sold. he floated it down a bit and waited for Alan to sell the next. Woods was lucky to escape but it looks bad for Alan. 3 5 FORE'N'AFT 1926 fm E A . -Vw sm Have to give my attorney a ring and see if he will handle it. HHello, Jim. Say, I've got a good case for you on Mars." "Sorry, Bill, but I wouldn't touch one there. There is only one man that I know who will handle it. His name is J. Bartlett Chandler. Never known to lose a case but absolutely refuses to take one with a woman in it. They say a chorus girl crossed him once and made him lose faith in women." So "Cy" made good, but that was almost to be expected with all the arguments he had at school. Certainly too bad he never got over his dislike of the Cbill ofj fare sex. There was no need of sending anyone to look for "Ed" Milner and "Tess" Griffin for their names are always on the air advertising the screen's latest success. "Grif" is now the silver sheet's greatest he-vamp. The ease with which he captures the hearts of his audiences is remarkable. "Ed" is indis- putably the leader of the speed demons of the age having captured all honors on the speedway. "Ed's" latest success is known as Declaring His Intentions, Now the reports are coming in on the politicians. "Bud" Hill is in the Senate where he is active in backing a bill which will force cities to put in soft rubber lamp posts. "Bud" claims that there will be fewer serious accidents if they are forced to install these flexible poles. This brings us to the man who backed "Bud" for the office. He is no more or less than "Art" Raidy: if you have been in North Adams, you have probably heard him referred to as "Boss Murphy". He is quite busy now pulling wires to get his side-kick, "Frankie W" into the treasurer's office. Pretty high jump for Lowe, but he has made some high ones. Poor "Pete" Lillard! You would never know him now. He has put 011 pounds of superfluous flesh about the mid section and may be found at any time seated at the head of a directors' table smoking immense black cigars and ap- parently dictating to a beautiful "stenog." If he were playing football now, he would have to play standing guard instead of the flashy quarterback we used to know. Here is some rather startling information wired in from the West. " 'Monk' Templeton now posing in large Eastern department store as the only surviving relic of the old time West. A perfect he-man with fuzz on his chin." One of the planes hit a severe storm and after several days was beached on the shore of a tropical island. The reporter discovered that everything was free: it was always summer: it was Utopia. Oh! How wonderful to be the first here.-but alas. Who was that coming up the beach, dressed in the finest fig leaves and carrying a cigarette-bearing tree? It was "Dave" Whiting. Work had proved too much for him, and then he stumbled across this land and lived happily ever after. --.gi 3 5 ig..- FORE'N'AFT 1926 emi, s, , . ,,w.Y , WXWWY.

"Johnny" Wiles is the President of the famous Knock-'em Out Row-Boat Company. These boats are propelled by the well-known Fall-Flat motor in- vented by Charles Parker. "Booker" Holmes turned to politics and suc- ceeded in having himself elected to the honorable position of Mayor of Marion. He has just wired me that he will declare a town holiday when we come back and has kindlv placed the town treasury at our disposal.

SCHUMAKER '26 T was a dreamy, moonlight night, a June night with the stars twinkling, as the Tabor Boy glided across Nantucket Sound. The steady wind was just enough to tip the crests of the waves with streaks of white which sparkled as they caught the rays of the moon. The breeze whined softly in the rigging and flapped the loose rope-ends. The Tabor students on a few weeks' trip up the coast lounged comfortably about on the deck. They talked quietly among themselves or idly dreamed as they watched the phosphorescence trail astern to be lost in the darkness. The wind increased. The boys on watch sprawled on the deck handy to the ropes which it was their duty to attend. Nothing could have been more delightful, more peaceful, more soothing, than the Htful whistling of the wind through the shrouds, the steady onward rush of the schooner, and the slap-slap of the waves as they broke at the bow and raced aft in a welter of foam. But the dark horizon concealed the lurking storm-clouds. Suddenly the squall struck. As the Iirst onslaught hit her, over-over-over went the Tabor Boy nearly on her beam end. There was an indescribable confusion, boys scrambling here and there and the captain shouting hoarse orders which the wind drowned. The sails were lowered with a rush: everything was tied down safely: and the engine was started. ' The squall lasted only a short time and died out almost as quickly as it had sprung up. Order was restored, and the boat proceeded again reaching Nantucket that night. It was not until it was anchored and the crew was about to settle down for the night that anyone noticed the absence of one of the boys, Arthur Kilmery. "Seen anything of Arthur?" one of the boys casually asked another. "Why-no", the other replied, just as casually, and then repeated the question to his neighbor. In a few minutes it was found that Arthur had disappeared. No one knew when or how. The captain, worried over the loss of his charge, immediately telegraphed to the school to apprise them of the situation and then aroused the crew to set sail in search of the missing boy. All night they searched but found no trace. 4: ek as -ff 4: at Arthur was tired-oh, so tired! His fingers ached: his arms ached: his eyes ached. He knew that he had only to release his grip on the frail spar to find comfort in the oblivion of death. Just one instant of agony and then a long, peaceful rest. The vision was alluring to his tortured body. -..gt 4 4 FORE'N'AF T 1926 ABI' U01 It was as thefcaptain had surmised. Ascending from the cabin, Arthur had picked his way forward and installed himself in the bow. There he lay, dreamily meditating, when the wind bore He was thrown into the rising waves, his of the wind and stifled by the water which he instinctively grabbed for something by his wildly clutching hand grasped a light the Tabor-Boy down so suddenly. cry for help being lost in the roar rushed into his mouth. As he fell, which to save himself. By chance spar and dragged it off with him. The spar had saved his life. Although he was a fairly good swimmer, the tumultuous sea which raged during the time the squall lasted necessitated all his skill and strength together with the aid of the spar to keep his head above water. After the battle he was so exhausted that he could only cling weakly to the spar which served to keep him afloat in the calmer seas which followed. It was thus that he found himself afloat miles from land and in such a des- pairing frame of mind. He had been afloat for many hours as it was now early in the following day. His despair was immediately followed by a fierce rebellion against cruel fate. Why should he die so young, all alone in this vast expanse of sullen, slowly-heaving waves? All at once he felt an unutterable longing for his home, his family, his friends, and all the old familiar things which had now grown so dear to him. He fell into a reverie. Soon his eyes closed wearily, and he slept uneasily instinctively retaining his hold upon the spar. Bk lk lk PF lk lk , Many hours later he awoke refreshed. He seemed to be tossing about on the waves: but, strangely, he could not feel the water. He opened his eyes slowly. Unbelievingly he closed and opened them again. He was in a ship's cabin, and a man stood beside his bunk. "Feeling all right, Sonny?" a gruff but kindly voice asked. "Yes, I'm feeling fine now," Arthur replied as he looked up. "Where am I? How did I get here?" "Well, then," a rather tall, robust man answered: "you can get up and come on deck if you feel like it. You're on board the "Heather" of City Island, New York. Some college fellows have chartered her for a two weeks' cruise along shore, and I'm the captain." "And," he added, "they're a bunch of land-lubbers, too. Besides not knowing anything one of 'em's sick abed." With that the captain left the stateroom and went on deck. In a few minutes Arthur appeared. The captain surveyed him from head to foot. He saw a tall, well-built boy of about eighteen years. His hair was a light brown: and blue eyes looked frankly from a clear, good-natured countenance. Alto- gether it was a good specimen of boyhood who presented himself to the cap- tain's scrutiny. "Where do you hail from, Sonny, and what's your name?" asked the captain. "We picked you out of the ocean nigh dead, but you didn't have any tag on you." -'-+z+45+g.f.- FORE'N'AFT 1926 .Qu . -.-A W-.4 .K .lbw Arthur answered, telling of his misfortune: and after the captain had in- troduced him to the college crew who had chartered the schooner, they chatted for a while about nothing in particular. After about an hour had passed, the captain took the wheel. The wind was blowing much harder. and a storm was brewing. "Go below and start the engine," he commanded one of the fellows, adding to Arthur, "They know how to run an engine and what the ropes are for, but that's about all." Arthur had told him of his own experience as a sailor. The storm rose rapidly. Spray began to dash aboard: and all donned their oilskins. Arthur taking an extra suit. The captain was not wor- ried as he relied on the engine to carry them safely to port. The boat was tossing and pitching a good deal now, and darkness was closing in on them. Then an unfortunate accident happened. The boom, fastened by one of the self-elected crew, had gradually loosened the rope which held it: and as the boat took .an extremely violent roll, it jerked itself free and with terrific force struck in the head the captain, who had been standing at the wheel. He was knocked unconscious by the blow, and for a moment the little ship was at the mercy of the waves. Arthur seized the wheel, however, and regained control of the schooner while the others attended to the fallen captain. It was soon found that the injury was very serious. He was taken down to his stateroom, and all was done that was possible. He still remained unconscious and at times lapsed into delirium. On deck, Arthur had unconsciously assumed command. As none of the others knew how to handle a boat, he kept his position as steersman: and for the same reason the crew obeyed his commands, recognizing the authority which he had instinctively exercised, so used was he to giving orders to his friends on his own boat. With one of the fellows to help him at the wheel and a couple on lookout duty, Arthur felt reasonably secure. They proceeded in this manner for about an hour making slow headway as the wind was against them when a second and more disastrous misfortune occurred. The engine failed. No amount of persuasion and coaxing could make it go. Meanwhile the St0rm was increasing. Arthur realized with a sinking of his heart that matters could not be much worse. As soon as the engine stopped, the schooner fell into the trough of the sea and was in imminent danger of capsizing. By some miracle, under Arthur's directions and with his help, they managed to hoist the three-reefed foresail and heave to in an endeavor to ride out the storm, which was now approaching its height. Manfully Arthur kept at his task as steersman though the strain was beginning to tell on his already weakened strength. How the boat ever lived through the boiling seas and the shrieking, diabolical wind will always be a mystery to him. Tons of seething water crashed on the foredeck of the little ship and came tumbling aft, sweeping away all the loose articles and swirling angrily about the legs of the courageous quarter- master. Great hissing combers threatened to engulf the daring craft which rode in their midst. Oftentimes the whole deck would be under water, but the defiant -...,gi4 5 ig..- FORE'N'AFT 1926 ,Qu H, IGN ship would shake itself and rise doggedly from beneath the waves, which cas- caded off the sides like a miniature Niagara. The Wind shrieked and whistled through the rigging, driving the stinging salt spray in sheets against the faces of the little group huddled about the wheel. The straining timbers of the boat labored and groaned as though in mortal pain. Although he had plenty of help at the wheel, Arthur had to do most of the steering himself : and the terrific strain had exhausted him. Grimly he stuck to his task, tugging and pulling with all his might. The wind went through him to the marrow of his bones, and he was soaked in the flying water. How long it lasted Arthur neither knew nor cared: but when at last his numbed muscles could hardly move and every action was an excruciating pain, the seas had calmed down enough to allow one of the amateur crew to take the wheel and offered him the rest his weary body sorely needed. In a short time after that they succeeded in setting all sail and soon reached a safe haven. Amidst the solicitous inquires of the crew, who did not at all doubt that he had saved them from a watery grave, Arthur stumbled down the companionway. headed for his bunk. At the bottom a weak voice inquired: "Are we safe?" He looked up. There staring him amazedly in the eye was the sick member of the crew, his brother. With an inarticulate sound of joy and relief Arthur collapsed in his brother's arms. . Many hours later he awoke refreshed from a deep sleep. While he had slept, his companion had notiied the school and the captain of his situation giving in glowing terms an account of his plucky battle. The story soon circulated among the boys: and when he returned, he was besieged with questions. His only reply was a brief and modest narrative of his adventure, with a shrug of the shoulders and the words, "I'm glad I was able to do it." .lr ffm!

"I should say I did. Why didn't they send Heath House along and make a job of it?" came the reply from Bill, one of the "black gang" at Tabor. This conversation was only part of that which was carried on around the halls the day the Panama Cruise list was posted. Everyone thought that the faculty had selected the biggest bunch of babies possible. an wk sf wk On the 20th of March there sailed from Boston on the United Fruit Steamer "San Mario" six happy kids, as they were called at Tabor Academy. and Mr. Davis, the teacher of Spanish. We must stop a moment here and tell who were the lucky boys. Tom Harrison was the largest Taborite of them all. He was almost six feet tall and was very heavily built. Harry Cullen and Bob Smith were about the same size as Tom. The other three, Jim Macey, Fred Cobb, and Joe Wannamaker, were much smaller boys. They were the kids, if any: but they were earnest and willing to work. . The first two days out were very quiet days on the boat. Not much work was done, and the boys had settled down for a good rest. The third day there arose a strong northerly wind, and the water became very choppy. This twelve thousand ton fruit steamer, which was almost empty. began to roll and pitch. During the third night the storm and the height of the waves increased. Word came from the bridge to keep the boys ready for any call. The position was supposed to be about three hundred miles southeast of Cape Hatteras Light. "Oh let me alone, Freddy, I'm not sick," yelled Tom who was lying on the upper berth in his stateroom. He was not the only one lying down. Bob and Harry were also just taking a rest in their staterooms across the way. Neither one would admit that his condition was seasickness. At the same time up in the salon the three kids were playing cards and reading, having the time of their lives. Mr. Davis was in his stateroom and had not been seen for two days. Maybe he was sick or perhaps just "tired", like the other three boys. About five a few sharp blasts of the whistle were blown. Then a few more. The ship was running into heavy fog. The supper bell rang at six, and three young boys reported with a desire to eat. The stewards filled them up, and they ate everything. They even came back for seconds and proved their ability to eat in any kind of storm. After supper they went back to their games and books. They turned in at nine sleepy but not sick. Morning came but with it not much change in weather. The whistle kept up its continual short blasts, and the wind had abated a little. The boat was making about ten knots with the wind off the quarter. It was very hard -..-pE5f48+g,...- FORE'N'AFT 1926 Q09 r ,,,,.,,,,, fad, HWY... a. ghf 3 Dim' to walk about because of the pitching and rolling of the steamer. Everything was going along as well as could be expected under these conditions. At noon word came from the bridge to have two boys Sent up to stand watch. Joe and Jim were the only ones now who really felt like working. Dressed in oilskins they hurried onto the bridge. The Captain told them to stand on the port side and listen for any sound of a whistle. The boat was going at half speed, and every precaution was being taken against a collision. The boys stood side by side listening attentively as they had been ordered. Once in a while they got a cheerful word from one of the officers to relieve the tiresomeness- of the job. It was wet and cold, but they paid attention to their orders. "Jim, did you hear that?" said Joe, nudging him in the side. "Sounds like a whistle to me." "Yes, I did. You had better tell one of the officers," replied Jim after listening again for the sound. "Captain Davidson, I hear a whistle off the port beam," yelled Joe in a high excited voice. "Listen-hear it?" "I should say so," answered the Captain. 'lPut those engines into full speed astern. Mr. Cook, signal with that whistle that our engines are going full speed astern. Damn this fog! I hope that it is not too late!" It was too late! The wind had held back the sound of the approaching steamer's whistle from the bridge. Through the fog could be seen the bow of a steamer rapidly approaching the midships of the San Mario. Then came a loud crash, and the grating of the iron plates was heard. The boat shook from bow to Stern and listed slightly to starboard. A tanker slowly withdrew its bow leaving a large gash in the side of the boat. Water was rushing through the hole into the ship with great force. "Macey, come here," shouted the Captain to Jim. "Take this message to the wireless room, 'We are badly damaged. Stand by for rescue'." Then as he turned to go into the Wheel House, he continued, "Mr. Cook, have everyone report on deck at once. Find out about any injuries or deaths and report to me as soon as possible." After a few moments' conference with some of the officers the Captain informed the entire crew that all hope of saving the ship must be given up at once. It was expected that the boat would sink within an hour. He ordered the men to station themselves at the lifeboats. The signal was given to lower the lifeboats. "No. 4f' jammed, and its crew changed to other boats. As Joe and Jim were running to another boat, they heard above the yell- ing and sound of creaking blocks a faint cry. They ran to the railing, and looking down on the lower deck saw a man struggling to get up and climb the stairs. Realizing his danger they ran down to help him. It was Mr. Cook, the first officer. He had fallen on the slippery stairs and had broken his leg. With great difficulty they succeeded in getting him back to the boat deck. Here to their astonishment they found no one. All the lifeboats were gone ex- -..,Qf49E,. - 'af FORE'N'AFT 1926 O00 ul A W , Y IQP cept for the jammed "No. 4." Placing Mr. Cook near the boat, they attempted to release it. With his advice and some of the principles they had learned in school the boat was released. They lowered it to the edge of the deck, placed Mr, Cook into it, and quickly lowered it to the water. The boat was listing now heavily to port. They rowed the lifeboat away as fast as possible. After going about two hundred yards they turned around to see the San Mario plung- ing headlong into the sea with a swish and a loud gurgle. They breathed a sigh of relief that they had got away when they did. Mr. Cook then suggested the use of a sail. They took out the sail used as an auxiliary when there was wind and put it up. With Mr. Cook as navigator they headed by compass for shore. The sun was just setting, and the fog be- came thinner. The light wind carried the little craft over the rough seas at a comfortable speed. Mr. Cook was as comfortable as could be expected, and the boys seemed to be happy in spite of their weary day. As the sun arose in the East and cast its rays of sunshine upon this little craft, the crew of three looked towards the West and saw land. It was the coast of Florida! A short time later they landed upon the shore at Palm Beach. Cheers and cheers of welcome were given to all three by the crowd that witnessed their arrival. The boys at once became heroes and were carried up into the town. Mr. Cook was sent to a hospital, and his leg was set. After attend- ing receptions all day long, the weary boys boarded a train that night for Bos- ton. They were tired but surely were happier. PK HF ak :lf Two boys were walking from the Academy building towards.Washburn when a boy with a newspaper burst from the Waiting Station and yelled, "Hey, Bill, did you see this? Of all the luck! I guess it just can't be beaten." All three stopped in the center of the street and glanced at the New York Times. There on the front page the following article struck their eyes: "Cli- maxing the heroic rescues at sea of our sea captains these past few months comes the rescue of an officer by two cadets. This rescue by two school boys who were travelling as cadets on the United Fruit Steamer, San Mario, is one of the greatest acts of bravery ever performed in the Merchant Marine Service. In the face of death with the steamer sinking rapidly they calmly carried to safe- ty the first officer, Mr. Cook, who had broken his leg in a fall. Releasing a jammed lifeboat, they lowered it with the injured officer to the sea. Using an improvised sail and oar, they reached shore the following morning. 'Jim' Macey of Wareham, Massachusetts. and 'Joe' Wannamaker of Pittsburg, Penn- sylvania, are the two heroes. They are very small boys, but much credit must be given to them for their courage. Much credit must also be given to Tabor Academy for the excellent training it gives its boys both in seamanship and in courage such as was displayed by these two boys." -..ag 5 0 EQ.-- 41 FORE'N'APT 1926 ww -- -.-- -5- na.. TABGR ACADEMY N 1876 Elizabeth Sprague Taber, a resident of New Bedford who had form- erly lived in Marion, founded and endowed a school, Tabor Academy, that there "might be provided better and more complete facilities than hitherto ex- isted, for the thorough education and training of the youth of Marion and vicinity,-and eventually of all the youth of all portions of the country who might desire to participate in its advantages." She purchased a large tract of land on Main Street and had the school building that was on what is now the campus, moved down the street. This is now the South Primary School. She had the main building equipped with all the modern conveniences of the time. When part of the Academy building was completed, Mrs. Taber moved into one of the offices from her home in New Bedford and remained there until Tabor Hall was finished. Next she secured a Yale graduate, Mr. C. P. Howland, to take charge of the school and went to live with his family in Tabor Hall. She took a great interest in the school until her death in 1888. Mrs. Taber entrusted the management of the school to a Board of Trustees made up of seven ministers from Marion, Mattapoisett, Rochester, New Bedford, and Acushnet. She was deeply religious: and the change in spelling of her name. Taber, to Tabor of the Academy is said to be from Mt. Tabor of Biblical refer- ence. The school enlarged and prospered rapidly until it became too crowded for proper instruction: so a large assembly hall was added on the west side of the building. The old school room was bisected by a hallway leading to the new, and the parts turned into recitation rooms. The upper floor was remod- eled and turned into scientific laboratories. ' In 1891 with an enlarged faculty the school enrollment reached one hun- dred and sixteen, or the largest in the history of the school. The next year a great change took place because of an estrangement between the principal and the trustees. A new principal, Mr. D. M. Dustan, found himself facing a dif- ficult situation in the year 1893. The enrollment was cut in half, and the entire teaching staff was new. But by great persistence and hard work the school was once more brought back to its former standing so that in the year 1901 he turned over to his successor, Mr. W. C. Hamblin, a well organized school. In 1905 a new dormitory was built. The building was called Washburn House in honor of the treasurer of the institution, Mr. F. A. Washburn of New Bedford. This new dormitory was built too close to Tabor Hall, and Tabor Hall was finally moved to its present location. On what is now the soccer field just north of Tabor Hall there used to be a barn. This was later moved to Pitcher Street and remodeled: it is now a fine dwelling house. -,.,5i51i,.- FORE'N'AFT 1926 'Er . ...Y ...W 2. . Y... am, In 1910 Mr. W. C. Hamblin resigned, and his successor, Mr. C. E. Pethy- bridge, remained in office until 1916 when Mr. W. H. Lillard was secured as principal. In that year a radical change came to Tabor. The school was reorganized to serve as a boys' school with a definite program which would make it serve a national constituency. The girls were limited to day scholars and placed in a separate department. Several changes were made in the school which started on its new plan. In the summer of 1917 Camp Cleveland was started. Over two hundred boys of about seventeen years of age attended this camp with an idea of entering the navy as soon as they were of age. Camp Cleveland lasted through the summers of 1918 and 1919 until the end of the War, and many did actually get into the service from there. In the meantime Tabor's faculty had all entered the service except one man, and the school just struggled along during those three long years. In 1920 it began to get back onto its feet again, and in the summers of 1920 and 1921 Tabor was the National Head- quarters for the Sea Scouts. Some of the staff were discharged from the serv- ice and came back to the school. The boys were all dressed in an olive drab uniform somewhat similar to that of the Marines. Later these were discarded for blue sailor uniforms which have remained the school bill of dress ever since. Students have come from all over the world to attend Tabor, and its reputation is growing very rapidly. Boys have come from several foreign coun- tries, as: India, Costa Rica, China, Russia, Siam, and Mexico. They have also come from the following states: Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Illinois, Kansas, District of Columbia, Florida. Nebraska, Califor- nia, Oregon, Ohio, Minnesota, Colorado, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Idaho. Tabor graduates have entered colleges all over the United States, those colleges entered are as follows: Amherst, Annapolis, Bates, Boston University, Bowdoin, Brown, Carleton, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Franklin and Marshall, George Washington University, Harvard, Lowell Textile, Massa- chusetts Institute of Technology, Massachusetts Agricultural College, Norwich. New Bedford Textile, New York University, Princeton, Tufts, University of California, University of Maine, Union, Wentworth Institute, Wesleyan, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Williams, and Yale. A staunch black schooner, the Black Duck, was chartered in 1921, and also in that year the first deep sea cruise to France was taken. The boys worked as cadets on an ocean liner and received valuable instruction as well. Cruises to France, England, Central America and Cuba, Texas, and Porto Rico have since been taken. In l92'5 the Black Duck was returned to her owner. and a larger ninety-foot schooner, The Tabor Boy, was bought. In the same year the foundation for a very large dormitory was laid which can accommodate ninety boys and five instructors. This dormitory is due to be completed next fall. -.,.,5t52+5.. .- Eltbletics FORE N 4 , FORE'N'AFT 1926 09 El 7,77 W il if 5 Ark? - FOOTBALL TEAM Couch, BEEBE Captain: LILLARD Manager: CHANDLER Morss le Sigler re Lowe lt Butterfield, Cobb rt Guardenier lg Bailey, Raidy rg Colvin lh Howard rh Templeton c Lillard.

We un- dertook the hardest schedule that any Tabor team has ever had, playing five preparatory schools and three high schools. In the only two games that were lost defeat came in the last minutes of play, showing how close the games were. Six letter men reported to Coach Beebe at the start of the season. A squad of thirty men started practice as soon as school opened, and hopes for a good season brightened right then and there. The first game at Hyannis proved that We had a very powerful team. We were able to amass a total of 32 points and shut out Hyannis from any score. The next game was a defeat at the hands of New Bedford on a very rainy day. Although Tabor fought all the way, we were unable to score and over- come New Bedford's 12 points. The following week-end we defeated Noble and Greenough, 13 to 0. It was a very close and hard fought game. We easily defeated Provincetown down among the sand dunes to the tune of 17 to 0 the following week. . The following two Saturdays we visited Pomfret and St. George's re- spectively. Both games were very close, and the teams were evenly matched. We were defeated by Pomfret but came out on top at St. George's. The score at St. George's, 14 to 7, was the exact reverse of that at Pomfret. Moses Brown came to Marion the next week and was utterly disappointed. The only score of the game, the result of a long forward pass, was in our fav- or. It'was a very close and interesting game. Our last game was played with Thayer. On a slippery field Tabor fought an uphill battle with a much heavier team. The gamelfinally ended in a scoreless tie. Right here a word of thanks and praise must be handed to Tabor's staff of coaches. Every game was close and even: but almost every time, Tabor had the last drive and fight to come through and win. There was a continual fighting and team spirit which never ended for a minute in either practice or game. "Doc." Baxter and "Capt." Lillard from Dartmouth, Mr. Werme from Colby, and Mr. Beebe from Yale formed the coaching staff. It is impossible to pass out praise to any particular player as every man was right on the job. It must be said that "Pete" Lillard made a great cap- tain. He surely was an inspiring leader who by his wonderful playing and good leadership was a big factor in the Red and Black team. -..gf 5 5 FORE'N'AFT 1926 '00 -f f V- me 5 6 .- SOCCER Coach: MAXWELL Captain: GRIFFIN Manager: SANDERS McLean 1. o. f.

The team besides showing ability in playing a hard physical game displayed their aptitude for acting as true sportsmen at all times. In spite of the fact that there were but four of last year's letter men available at the start of the season. a team was developed that was a credit to the school. The season opened on October 10th when we met the Harvard Fresh- men Team at Cambridge. The Tabor players went on to the field with re- venge in their hearts over the defeat of former years by this team. Our for- wards threw the Harvard defense in all directions and subtracted at least ten years from their poor goalie's life. The Harvard team finally "threw up the sponge" without scoring a point: the only two points scored in the game were by Faye and Griffin. Griffin made his tally from a well-placed corner kick, and Faye, his from a well-directed shot from the field. Siam was well represented in the game by Smarcom's display of clever footwork. The victors returned to Marion with the defeat of former years completely wiped out of their minds. Our next game was at Battery Park in New Bedford with the New Bed- ford Vocational School on October 12th. Our game served as a preliminary before a game between the New Bedford and Fall River Soccer Clubs. This game did not turn out as successful as our first one, Tabor losing by a score of 3 to 0. Although the team played a hard-fought game, they seemed not to have recovered their speed of the first game. Rich performed very creditably at goal, and his long throws of the ball drew no little applause from the spec- tators. The following Saturday we got our revenge when Vocational came to Marion. The tide was completely turned, and we made the only point of the game scored. Griffin made the goal for Tabor and played a fine game at all times. On the 24th of October in Andover we met with the only bad defeat of the season. Griffin had sustained an injury in practice the day before and was only able to play in the defense for a short while, and Baldwin received a knock in an early stage of the game that took him out entirely. Because of this both our offense and defense were materially weakened. Smarcom scored our only point of the game while Andover piled up a total of 7 against us. November 18th, St. George's School of Newport met us on our own field. Tabor began to shatter their opponents' defense at the first of the battle and continued to do so throughout the entire game. Although the ball was kept in the enemy's territory practically all the time, our men could not get a shot through the St. George goalie. Rich upheld his previous fine record at goal by not letting a single point slip through his fingers. The game finally ended in a scoreless tie. Faye, Griffin, MacLean, and Wiles played their us- ual fast game along the front lines, exhibiting wonderful teamwork at all times. Our next game was with St. George's School on their own field at New- port. Rich was unable to play in the game, and the backs realizing that the defense was materially weakened, played a hard game and let only one point be scored for the opponents. White filled the gap at goal very well, stopping many a hard drive. St. George's one point was more than made up for by two goals scored by Austin and Griffin in an early stage of the game. The last game of the season ended in the score of 2 to I for Tabor. -..gf 5 7 ig.-- FORE'N'AF'I' 1926 11007777 IQ' i458Fg+-'- BASKETBALL Coach: DUNBAR Captain: SIGLER Manager: GUARDENIER Long 1. f.

Soon the premier players were selected and given berths on the firstystring. Training was then got under way and entered into religiously by all. During the second week of practice Rus- sell Sigler was elected captain, and with his excellent help Mr. Dunbar turned out one of the most successful basketball teams Tabor has ever had. With Veazie tipping the ball at center the rest of the team experienced little difficulty in executing their plays. Sigler and Long overwhelmed the opposing guards with their clever passwork and piled up most of our scores throughout the season. Although their positions do not seem of such great importance, Hill and Raidy deserve a great deal of credit for the way in which they broke up their opponents' attacks. Cobb, Colvin, and Ewing, though they did not re- ceive letters at the end of the season, showed good playing and sportsmanship as substitutes. When they played, they fought as hard as the first team players. The schedule for 1926 in basketball was as follows: Our first game took place on our home floor against Plymouth High School on Saturday, January 16. The final score was 32 to 21 in favor of Plymouth, but although Tabor lost, the team fought hard. Tabor defeated Wareham High School with a 77 to 14 score Wednesday afternoon, January 20. The game was played in Tabor's gymnasium. The third game of the season took place at South Braintree on Friday, January 22. This time Tabor was victorious over Thayer Academy, the score being 23 to 13. A rally in the last few minutes of play gave Tabor the victory. On Saturday evening, January 30, the Tabor basketeers showed their mettle when they played Bridgewater Normal School at Bridgewater. The game ended with the score 18 to 18: so an overtime period was played. Bridge- water took the lead with 19 to 18, then Tabor with 20 to 19: at last Bridge- water won, 21 to 20, after a hard game. Saturday afternoon, February 6, Tabor met its old enemy, New Bedford, on the latter's floor. New Bedford won 44 to 19 in spite of Tabor's fine re- sistance. The team journeyed to Newport February 13, where it played Saint C1eorge's School. Tabor here suffered its second one-point defeat in a score of 31 to 30. February 17 Tabor took the 1ion's share of the baskets when we played New Bedford on Tabor's floor. The final score of 39 to 15 greatly pleased the entire Academy. The last game of the season was played in Marion against Thayer Acad- emy. Tabor defeated Thayer for a score of 29 to 18. This game brought to a close a very successful season and one the school should be proud of. 3,51 5 9 Eg.- FORE'N'AFT 1926 Qld , 00,9 TRACK Coach: WERME Captain: AUSTIN Manager: MILNER LETTER MEN Burrell Rich Howard Wiles Lowe Smith, H, 434609.- Q' , K 55- Q 21: S 4 FORE'N'AFT 1926 'lil 7.3 .. .771 Y UQ! TRACK OR the first season on the winter tracks of New England, the track team justified its initial year in this major sport. The call for candidates came immediately after Christmas vacation, and Coach Werme had to tackle the job of making a track team out of fifteen men with but two of them with any experience. He showed his ability and the team their spirit: for before the season closed, the marks of Tabor were imprinted deeply in Massachusetts track circles. Not only did Tabor place well in the State Meet in Boston, but beat New Bedford and lost to the strong Moses Brown and Fairhaven teams by one and two points respectively. Although a great part of the squad is lost through graduation, the start is a good one and every year there will be a better foundation to build upon. Our first meet was with Moses Brown at Providence. This meet was Tabor's first and hardest. We made a line showing, and it was a very close and exciting meet. Out of seven events we captured five first places. The first event, 40 yard dash, was won by Captain Austin. Austin showed that he was a real iron man that day by winning three out of five first places. Rich easily won first place in the shot put, and Lowe succeeded in hopping over the bar for first place in the high jump. When the score was finally added up, it gave Moses Brown 31 and Tabor' 30. Although we were defeated, we were all satisfied with the first appearance of our track team. New Bedford High School was easily defeated on our track two weeks later. Austin again showed his ability and captured a first and a second. Howard came through in the 600 for first place, and Weeks won a beautiful race in the 1000 for first place. The 300 was captured by Austin, with Smith second. Out of five events we captured four first places. The last event was a very exciting relay race which Tabor won. On March 6 our track team went to Boston for the State Meet. All the preparatory schools of New England were present, and the competition was very keen. Rich managed to break his record in throwing the shot and came in fourth. Austin came through and took third in the 50 yard dash and 300. A relay team made up of Smith, Chandler, Burrell, and Austin took fifth place. Tabor succeeded in getting fifth place which is a very good showing for our first year on the track. We ended the season with Fairhaven High School on our track on March l 3. We were unfortunate in getting first place in the dash only as we had count- ed on taking all three places. Howard won the dash and 600 and was the high scorer of the day. Lowe made a very good showing in the high jump and won the event easily. Although Rich broke his record in the shot put, he was defeated after a hard fight. The meet was a very close one, but Fairhaven defeated us, 28-26. -..gg 1 FOHE'N'AFT 1926 MG' - KSN web-ff-M BASEBALL 1925 Coach: HEWITT Captain: LOOMIS KINNEY Manager: JOSIAH CHANDLER Lillard, Catcher Griffin, 3rd Morss fKellyj.

Only three letter men were avail- able and but two or three experienced candidates. However, they practiced hard and performed creditably against stronger teams. The first game was with Barnstable High School at Hyannis and we managed to win, 10 to 8, easily. Our next game, however, seemed to be an off- day for us: we made several errors and gave a poor showing. Noble and Greenough easily defeated us on their diamond at Dedham with a score of 12 to 3 On May 2 Dartmouth High came to Marion and we overwhelmed them with a 21 to ll victory, our team playing spendidly throughout the game. The succeeding game was with Fairhaven High on their own grounds. The game was a hard fought contest with Kelly pitching throughout the game. In the seventh inning Fairhaven slipped ahead with a lead of one run and no score was made by either side in the eighth, so that in the ninth Tabor was at bat with two men out and the score, 7 to 6, in favor of Fairhaven. Fortunately, Lillard, Beall, and Morss each made a run, which, after we had held them down in the last half, gave us the game with a 9 to 7 score. Thayer Academy was our next opponent. They had a much stronger team but Tabor held until the last few innings when Thayer won, 13 to 4. During the game Kelly and Hall, running after the same ball, crashed into each other and Hall suffered a broken jaw. On May 16 Powder Point School came over to visit us and we had a base- ball game in the afternoon. It was a fiercely contested struggle but Powder Point finally triumphed, the score being 8 to 6. Our next two games were with New Bedford and Fairhaven Highs on our own diamond. The team made a very poor showing both times with the result that New Bedford easily gained an 8 to l victory, while Fairhaven defeated us with a slightly lower score, 7 to 2. On the afternoon of Commencement Day the team played against the Alumni team. After ll innings of close work the game ended with the score, 4 to 4. Lillard, Morss, and Kinney played consistently well throughout the season: Beall and Hill also did good work.

On June 6th the annual race between the Plymouth and Sippican Junior Crews was held. Their race was very close resulting in a victory for the Plymouth Crew. -.,..5i 64ig..e., FORE'N'AFT 1926 QQLDD D .- new WATERFRGNT ACTIVITIES ABOR'S biggest asset is its geographical location. It is situated on a land- locked harbor possessing clear, clean water of an average depth of eight feet. The harbor is free of undertow and submerged obstructions. From early spring until late fall, water activities are carried on. The fall is devoted to the instruction of new boys in swimming and in the sailing of small boats. During the winter months seamanship is taught in the classrooms. This instruction gives the boys the elements of navigation. There is indoor practice on rowing machines for those trying for crew. Crew is a major sport in the spring. Spring recreation consists of sailing-skiff races, for ,which pennants are awarded, and cruising on the Tabor Boy. In spring all boats are overhauled by the boys. In the summer there is a three to live weeks' cruise either to Maine or Washington, D. C. On afternoons of school days the boys have sufficient time for swimming and small boat sailing. On half holidays and week-ends a cruise on the Tabor Boy is most desirable to points on Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Haven Sound. As an alternative to the cruise there is an opportunity for a sail on the catboat, Crab, to the camp, Wild Duck, on Strawberry Point. The Wild Duck was built by boys during the World War. Last fall the boys completed an addition for storage and automobile shelter. The best possession of the school is the two masted schooner, Tabor Boy. The possession of the schooner was made possible because of the Tabor Boy Trust which is composed of parents of boys and friends of the school. They purchased the Tabor Boy and presented it to the school. The Tabor Boy is a 49 ton auxiliary schooner, 87 feet long and 19 feet wide. It has a draft of only 9 feet. It has accommodations for an overnight party of twenty-five, having five cabins, large galley, and three toilets. The boys under the direction of Captain Nelson Weeks, clean, paint, and rig it in the spring. I The boys con- stitute the entire crew on all of her trips. We have also four four-oared shells, a catboat, two motor tenders, eight small sailing skiffs, and several tenders. The immediate needs of the school are more sailing skiffs, a larger boat-house for storage, and dressing rooms for the boys. -..ai 5 5 ii..- FORE'N'AFT 1926 A 61 .1 f, fi, ,, , , g WEARERS OF THE MAJOR T At the beginning of the Spring Term Morss, Howard Butterfield Chandler Cobb, Francis Guardenier Howard Lillard Lowe Raidy Sigler Smith, Veazie Austin Bailey Burrell Colvin Griffin Holmes Long Milner Pratt Rich Sanders Soule Templeton Weeks Wiles Harry Alexander Austin Baldwin Bryden, William Faye Griffin Lillard McLean Baseball, Football Manager Football Football Football Football Football Football Football, Basketball , Crew Baseball, Manager Football Basketball Manager B Track Baseball Track asketball Z Basketball Basketball, Football Football, Track Football, Basketball Track Football Track Football Baseball Crew Basketball Manager Crew B Track Crew Crew Football Track Manager Football Track WEARERS OF THE MINOR T Awarded in Soccer Milner Rankin Schumaker, Manager Scott Smith, Robert Templeton White Wiles Sanders, Manager WEARERS OF THE T WITH CROSSED OARS Awarded to the Second Crew of 1925 Butterfield Hill, Robert Bailey Rankin, Manager ,gf 5 6 139- FORE'N'AFT 1926 Q61 KW -Y W, -1 ,YYY ,, , W ,agp -- -546713 FORE'N'AF'I' 1926 ,436 3t3..,.- ALMA MATER Tune of Russian Hymn Hail, dear old Tabor, noble and strong: 'l'o thee, with loyal hearts, we raise our song: Swelling to Heaven loud, our praises ring, Hail, dear old Tabor, of thee we sing.

Sanborn FORE'N'AFT1926 THE ANCHOR CLUB HE Anchor Club was founded in the fall of 1923 chiefly as a travel club. lt made rapid improvement until last year when it was a strong organization. However, the talks and discussions on travel were not sufficient to prevent its becoming a rather social rendezvous. As this was not the purpose for which the Club was founded, and as the members did not want their Anchor Club to sink to the level of a mere social organization, they looked for something to prevent it. It was discovered that with only two exceptions the Council roster was identical with that of the Anchor Club. Furthermore, it was obvious that the Council needed some secondary interest to make it as strong as it should be. The result was that June found an agreement reached between the two organizations whereby they would proceed as one in September of 1925 under the name and constitution of the Anchor Club. As this is the first year of the combination, there have been weaknesses: yet the year's work has proved that the move was a wise one. The growth of the school has made it necessary for the Club to spend practically all of its time as the student governing board. Up to the time that this article goes to press discipline problems and minor questions concerning the various school activities have kept the Club very busy. The big problem to be solved during the spring term is to perfect the organization of the Athletic Association, With this accom- plished the members of the Club feel that the achievements of the year have been entirely satisfactory. and they sincerely hope that the advancement next year will be as great as that of this year if not greater. They appeal to all mem- bers of the student body to give their representatives whole-hearted support and feel sure that they will be more than pleased with the result. l -..gg 7 I .- l3ORE'N'AFT 1926 warg. aa. a. M . aa- - - new FORE 'N' AFT BOARD HE Fore 'N' Aft had its beginning in l922 under the auspices of the senior class. The pioneer editorial board consisted of Thomas G. Wheeler. Seth L. Weeks, Edmund E. Tripp. and William N. Beggs: and in their foreword they made the following remarks: "This year book is more than a record, more than a directory. It is a fund of opportunities for following classes to enlarge and improve. We hope that the editing of this book will not only become a custom of the school, but will become a tradition of the school. Our book is small, but we are leaving it to future classes to make it better." Each year has seen the school a little larger and a little better than the pre- vious year, and the Fore 'N' Aft, although it has until this year kept its modest proportions. has added consistently new departments and features. This year with a school twice the size that it was in 1922, the year book is propor- tionately increased and bettered: and it is to be hoped that the board of 1922 will see their ambition partly realized. The office of editor-in-chief has been held by the following: l922, Thomas G. Wheeler: l923. Roger B. Salinger: 1924. John L. Hay: l925. Eugene N. Riotte.

It met with the favor of the entire school, and plans were rapidly formed that pictures might be shown that year. A committee consisting of Edgar Dunleavy, Cummings Parker. and Maurice McPeck with the assistance of Mr. Lillard procured a machine, a booth, and a screen. Their success was due in a large measure to the generosity of the late Mr. Herbert Austin who contributed fifty per cent of the necessary funds. The remainder was obtained by note. Films were arranged for, and everything was ready: when it was found that if the shows were to be opened to the public and admission charged, a license must be procured from the Board of Selectmen of Marion. The application was made, but "after due consider- ation" it was refused. Since there is no license required for private performances it was decided to organize a motion picture club and thus overcome the diffi- culty. It was in this way that the Robat came to be known as a club with Ed- gar Dunleavy as its president. Membership dues were one dollar which per- mitted the holder of a member's ticket to attend five performances. In the second year of its existence the Club made a second application for a license, and this time it was granted. The plan has proved a great success taking care of the "Friday evening problem" very nicely. The grade of films shown has improved annually un- til this year when the committee has been able to procure strictly up-to-date pictures. The overly sentimental type of story has been carefully avoided and only the best presented. In March 1926 the last payment was made on the note. As the Club is now free from debt, it is the hope of the officers that next year there will be proceeds to aid the Athletic Association Fund. We take this opportunity to thank Mr. Kern for his unselfish efforts in serving as operator. Q MQ Q . -..gt 74 ig..- FORE'N'AFT l926 GMS! V V Y IQ' THE TABOR LOG Editor-in-Chief - Charles S.

This is an institution that has long been needed in Tabor, and now that need has been filled. The past year saw the establishment of the first school paper since soon after the school was founded. . Last September it was decided to organize a Press Club whose purpose was to report the activities of the school to several different newspapers. After a trial of several weeks, this plan was found to be unfeasible. It was then de- cided that it was quite time the school had a paper, a paper by the students and for the students. The staff was formed by the members of the Press Club. The first issue came out just before Christmas vacation and was pronounced a great success by everyone. In fact it was better than had been expected. Of course there was room for improvement, which fact was taken advantage of immediately with the result that the next issue was even better. Since then there has been no doubt as to the success of the publication. It has met with approval both in the school and outside. To the personnel of the staff of THE TABOR LOG goes the honor of giving Tabor a school paper which is an honor to the school and an institution which should, and undoubtedly will, be car- ried on through the years and become a permanent fixture in the annals of the Academy. This was accomplished only by receiving the support of the student body and all others who are interested in the school. The TABOR LOG staff wishes to acknowledge the help rendered by individuals in various ways and also the advice given by members of the Faculty. Mr. Faust deserves special thanks for his work and assistance as Faculty Adviser. A student paper is a great thing in a school for many reasons. Not only is it the guiding spirit of the school, strengthening school spirit and setting higher standards: but it gives practical experience to all who are concerned in its publication. It helps to make better citizens for to-morrow out of the students of to-day. -...gi76ig..- FORE'N'AFT 1926 'Emi' Y? V- 20 'Yi Y W Y A Y , 7 Y Y ,Y , A , -W , .. THE TABOR DRAMATIC CLUB Edwin Butterlield John Colvin Arthur Howard Walter Lillard, Jr. Edwin Milner Karl Long Rufus Soule William Guardenier Gordon White Dukehart Chesney Alfred Bausmith Charles Parker Josiah Chandler Jack Avery THIS year a Tabor Dramatic Club was organized. It was founded to pro- mote dramatics and to help those desiring to enter entertainments here at Tabor. Under the supervision of Mr. Bouve the club was given an excellent start. Edwin Butterfield was elected president: Alfred Bausmith, business manager: and William Guardenier, treasurer. It was decided that the member- ship should be limited to those taking part in one play or two stunt night performances. On March 13th three one act plays were presented by the club. The first was "Moonshine", and it surely did have the right kick. The part of a North Carolina moonshiner was taken by Jack Avery. Josiah Chandler, taking the part of a revenue oflicer, outwits his captor and escapes death. By telling a hard luck story and begging the gullible moonshiner to kill him, and at the same time insinuating dire punishment in the hereafter for him who takes life, he makes the moonshiner force him to leave the hut. In reading the address left by the oflicer the moonshiner tinds that it was Jim Dunn whom the moonshiners had been planning to kill on sight. It was a good play and was well acted. The "Valiant" was the second play, and the following made up the cast: Warden Holt, Arthur Howard: Father Daly, Rufus Soule: James Dyke, the prisoner. Edwin Milner: a girl, Elsie Ryder: an attendant, Gordon White. The play opens with the time about one hour before midnight, the hour set for Dyke's execution. A girl who has read a syndicate article written by Dyke has come a thousand miles to see if he is her brother. A Dyke is very' quiet, and the girl has dificulty in approaching him. She recites some bits of poetry which she and her brother used to recite together years before. When he only remarks that it sounds silly, she gives up and decides that he is not her brother. As she is about to leave, he asks her her name: and to prevent her recognizing him -. 7 7F,...- FORE'N'AFT 1926 '-60 - --V - ----1 .War -an-Y H IM' as her brother he tells her that he had seen her brother killed while rescuing an officer on the battlefields. He tells her that he died a heroic death and not that of a murderer. The warden and chaplain return as she leaves, and they lead the murderer to the execution room. He goes away reciting "The Valiant never taste of death but once." The play was very well done, and the acting made it a huge success. "White Elephants" was the third play given, and it was very amusing. Larry, a bad man, taken by Walter Lillard, and his co-worker, Flo, Ada Allanach, set out to rob the apartment of newly-weds, Mr. and Mrs. Fenton, taken by Dukehart Chesney and Phyllis Morse. After frightening the couple Flo becomes soft and wants to back out. The bride then conceives the idea of having some of the useless wedding gifts taken away. The play finally ends after the bride finds out that her husband forgot to mail the insurance policy which she figured would cover the loss. The play was very good, and the audience was in continuous laughter. The plays were a great success ,and much credit should be given to Miss Day and Mr. Bouve, the coaches. The managers did their share in helping put the evening's entertainment over with a big bang. In fact, some said that these were the best plays ever given at Tabor Academy. That is very encouraging for the Dramatic Club for its Hrst year as an organization in this school. -,..,q+ 7 3 E..- ' 5 Q ff' 41' FORE'N 2464 bl GX! 5 'TN A 974 79539 ., I lPoRE'N'AFT 1926 fmt-71 -7- - - - -7- - V V -- f- ---V 'GN SCHOOL ORCHESTRA T the beginning of our fall term, 1925, Tabor found itself for the first time in its history surrounded with undeveloped musical talent. At the initiative of Mr. Lillard we had added to our faculty staff Mr. Edward B. Albertin of Falmouth, a man of well known musical ability, who took in hand the job of starting our first classical orchestra. Musical equipment was bought, plans were made, and on the following Friday the first meeting was held. At the taking of the roll call it was discovered We had the following candidates: Marion Ryder from the Girls' School, Lillian Blankenship from Marion, Kenneth Sanders, and Ernest Wiles at the violins: Earl Yeaton and Waldemar Veazie at the corners: Henry Hollister, at both the baritone and banjo: Dukehart Chesney taking turns with the French horn and mandolin: Basil Austin and Alfred Kelsey playing saxophones neatly offset by the higher pitch of the clarinet played by Robert Pratt: Robert Smith at the drums: Francis Akin playing the flute: Walter Meyers at the alto horn and mandolin: Elizabeth Sherman at the cello: and Charles Mendell at the piano. The orchestra has played at the stunt night, November 17th, and at the presentation of the three one-act plays, March 13th. The policy of strengthening the violin section by recruits from Marion has been successful and will probably be continued. FORE'N'AFT 1926 265 Kfhv GLEE CL UB OR the first time in its history Tabor has had organized this year under F the direction of Mr. Edward B. Albertin a boys' glee club. At the first call for candidates thirty-five ambitious aspirants tried out their voices. Since then Mr. Albertin has narrowed the club down to some twenty earnest members. At an early election Waldemar Veazie was elected manager. The club's first public performance took place at the Christmas celebration at the school and was enjoyed by all. Later the club put on an act at the stunt night held January 23rd and sang the Volga Boatmen Song. The boys are given a great deal of help in this branch of school activity which will prove a great asset in their later lives. A list of the members is as follows: Francis Akin, Robert Andrews, John Avery, Alfred Bausmith, Ralph Bryden, William Bryden, James Baldwin, Charles Faye, William Guardenier, Herbert Holmes, William Park, Drayton Smith, Robert Smith, John Smith. Alan Schumaker, Emory Tobin, George Werrenrath, Nelson Weeks, Waldemar Veazie, and Frank Sherman. -.,,?+81+5g..- FORE'N'AFT19 26 ,,,,,,.,, HY, -,LH ,E WAY , A W, HY, ,WY Y DA GKOII --7 4 TABOR DANCE ORCHESTRA E had not long to Wait at the start of our fall term to learn that Tabor first complete dance orchestra. ln previous years the orchestra had three or four instruments but not enough to give a variety of dance numbers. This year we opened with a crash. September 19th came: and we all went to the movies, heard the song hit "Collegiate" ring out, glanced around, and beheld Robert Pratt and Basil Austin Working hard at the saxophones. Henry Hollister strumming away at his banjo, Charles Mendell giving the ivories a thorough work-out, Waldemar Veazie and Earl Yeaton slinging jazz right and left mingled with the steady boom of Robert Smith at the drums. At a later meeting Waldemar Vcazie was elected leader. Since then the orchestra has played for the Robat Club every Friday evening, at a number of informal dances given at the school. at a dance under the auspices of the Sippican Woman's Club: and it has now made a very well known name for itself. On the spring cruises it is interesting to note that Charles Mendell, Robert Pratt, and Waldernar Veazic represented the orchestra on the Porto Rico cruise: and Basil Austin and Earl Yeaton, on the Panama cruise. -,.iig25,.., Giruises FORE'N'AFT 1926 .4 , , .- . ..

Alan Schumaker, Frederic Woods, Earl Yeaton, Ernest Wiles, and Mr. Beebe left Tabor on the morning train, a happy crowd with great expectations. Arriv- ing at Boston we loaded seabags, musical instruments, and Woods into a taxi and proceeded to walk to the United Fruit Company's dock where we boarded the San Benito. After the boresome business of being photographed for the Globe and the Post, and after farewells had been exchanged, we slid cut into the harbor. We watched Boston fade from sight and saw the pilot dropped Cwhich. by the way, isn't true: he jumpedj and picked up by the pilot schooner. The afternoon we spent in exploring the ship from stem to stern: also, we had a pleasant surprise in the form of tea and toast at 4 o'clock, which, we were told, was a custom on English boats. With a calm sea but a strong cold breeze, we passed Provincetown late in the afternoon and turned in late that night. SATURDAY, MARCH 20, After breakfast we had our first work washing the white paint. After finishing our work we played shuffleboard, became better acquainted with the personnel of the boat, and enjoyed ourselves till we turned in, with Yeaton and Wiles slightly seasick. SUNDAY, MARCH 21, No work Sundays, neither for us nor for the crew. We explored the ship some more, chatted, played games, took pictures. and did everything else we could think of, enjoying ourselves very much. Yeaton, Woods, and Wiles refused to eat in the salon, claiming that the motion in there was too much for them. 'AAnd so to bed." MARCH 22-23, At work painting and scraping varnish. The days pass- ed quickly and pleasantly. Monday night Austin, Yeaton, and Wiles got their musical instruments out on No, 3 Hatch and started playing. They were join- ed by the 2nd operator Cwirelessj with his guitar and a steward with a banjo. We enjoyed music and singing that night. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, We were roused at 5:30 today because we were arriving at Havana, and the port officials were to come on board. After the formalities and breakfast were over we went ashore and toured Havana. We engaged a car and driver and had a wonderful time. We shopped and went to the National Theatre. THURSDAY, MARCH 25, Took a car and drove out into the country, visiting a sugar mill and having a splendid sight-seeing trip. After luncheon some of us took a dip at Marianao Beach. At night we saw the city under cover of darkness, listened to the band concert, and went to the Jai Alai CHi-Lij game. MARCH 26-29, Left Havana and proceeded as usual to Colon. Worked regularly except Sunday. Had a pleasant voyage. 84-Ea..- FORE'N'AFT 1926 'QI' HY W ,wif 06N TUESDAY, MARCH 30, Up early again for the port officials. In the morning we motored to Gatun Locks and saw some ships pass through. In the afternoon we shopped and all had a wonderful swim in the Hotel Washington pool. Shopped some more that night. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3l, Shopped in the morning and saw more of the place. Saw the great number of bazaars in Colon and had a lot of fun bargaining with the storekeepers. Left for Limon at 2 P. M. THURSDAY, APRIL l, Got up early for the port officials as usual, April-Fool's Day and we certainly got fooled. We were unable to go to the Capitol. San Jose, because the next day was Holy Friday, and no trains were running to bring us back to the ship before it sailed. However, we went half way and came back, a very interesting, if somewhat dusty, trip. Walked around Limon, a very dusty, hot place, but interesting. Had a fine time that day. FRIDAY, APRIL 2, Walked around Limon again in the morning and in the afternoon had a good long swim in a pool protected from the sharks by a reef. We certainly enjoyed it. SATURDAY, APRIL 3, Loaded bananas all last night, a very inter- esting procedure. 4l,777 bunches of green bananas fresh from the plantations were safely stowed away. Ripe ones were to be had for the taking: and certain members of our expedition ate well but not wisely, an indulgence which they had cause to regret later. Got under way early in the afternoon en route for Boston. We regretted not having had much more time in the ports we had visited and also looked forward to seeing Boston again. APRIL 4-10, We were put on watches on the return voyage, 4 hours on and 8 hours off. Worked during the four daylight hours, which became three on account of our meals, and stood watch at night. Encountered thunderstorms nearly every night and witnessed some magnificient displays of lightning. We also steered the ship. Quite different from steering the Tabor Boy? We took our fun where we found it, and we found plenty. Austin aquired a severe sunburn. It certainly was a burning shame: he told us so emphatically. We ate so much that the chief steward became sick and was only able to arise when we reached Boston. We were sorry for him, but our appetites were insistent. SUNDAY, APRIL ll, Arrived at Boston at 3:30 A. M. After the customs officials had disrupted our tightly packed seabags so that they would not pack again, they passed us and we left the dock. We had bidden farewell to the officers and men. and we were certainly sorry to leave that jolly bunch. Every one of us vowed that some time he'd take that trip again: and then after three wonderful weeks we rode back to Tabor and got back into the harness. i A-f485lic-W IQ RE'N'AF'I' -Aixsayfh FORE'N'AFT 1926 1 THE PORTO RICO CRUISE HURSDAY, March 25th, six boys and Captain Lillard embarked on the steamship, San Lorenzo. The boys were Veazie, Chesney, Scott, Mendell, Milner, and Pratt. The boys went on the ship as cadets and earned their passage. "Captain" Lillard was to be their pilot in Porto Rico. A very unfortunate thing happened while the cruise was still young. The sea becamequite rough, rough enough to keep standing on the bridge from being monotonous, and also rough enough to make most everyone seasick. One half the boys almost immediately succumbed leaving three boys to stand the four hour watches of the day alone. A four hour watch at night when there is nothing to look at is about the most tiring thing there is: however, this didn't last long for the stricken boys soon recovered. Every day as we headed southward the weather became noticeably warmer until Sunday, March 28th, when we put on our white uniforms. The next day we arrived. The sun, as we were nearing the island, was hidden under a slight cloud which gave the fresh greenness of the island a hazy and unreal look. It was a beautiful sight, the green sloping mountain seemingly rising from the shore in irregular peaks and bluffs but always covered with luxuriant growth. The town of San Juan where we were to land was hidden by an immense fort, Morro Castle by name, which commands the whole harbor. This fort was built in the fifteenth century and has never fallen. Three days were spent ashore, viewing the island and gathering souvenirs. Bananas, cocoanuts, pineapples, oranges, coffee, sugar cane, and tobacco-all grow on this tropical island: but oranges, sugar, tobacco, and pineapples are the only things exported. One day was spent in taking an automobile trip through the beautiful mountains of the island. There we saw more scenery and many quaint Spanish towns. We stopped at a ranch owned by a lumberman from Maine and were treated with much hospitality by him. A day was used in visiting the old fortifications of San Juan, and in wandering around the nar- row squalid streets of the town which were nevertheless very interesting. Thursday, April lst, the boat started on her homeward journey. Much practical experience had been gained on the way down, and our principal job now was to steer the vessel, a job by no means easy. We soon discarded our whites and got back into blues. Monday, April 5th, we docked and after be- ing duly inspected headed for the office of Mr. Hoyt, sponsor of our trip. We thanked him and in return got a pass to the New York Stock Exchange. Tak- ing an afternoon train to Providence, then a bus and a trolley to New Bedford, and from there to Marion the School truck, we arrived, tired, late, and satis- fied that the cruise to Porto Rico had been worth while. 3 7 RE'N'AFT 4 +2-QSSEQ-W FORE'N'AFT 1926 QQ' H.. - IQ! 'LONG SHORE CRUISE N Saturday, June 13, a group of boys left Marion on the Tabor Boy for a 'long shore cruise to Washington. The group consisted of Bailey, Cobb, White, Bausmith, Barney, Lillard, Kelley, Akin, Hollister: and some new boys who were Benson, lVlcNutt, Denison, Cate, Denby, and Sullivan who was the cook. This group was under the command of Captain Carlson, Engineer Annis, Mr. Beebe, who was with us the first half of the trip, and Mr. Lillard, who was with us the latter half of the trip. The trip proved to be very interesting and in some ways educational as we had chances to stop every night in different ports and go ashore to see the town or city in the harbor of which we stopped. We spent Independence Day in Philadelphia where We heard an interesting lecture in front of Independence Hall. Of course the most interesting part of the trip comprised the days spent in Annapolis and Washington. We were very courteously treated at the Naval Academy and shown all over it. The day after that we drove to Washington in a bevy of Fords which Captain Lillard had hired for the occasion. While in that citv we went through the Capitol, Congressional Library, Bureau of Food Con- servation, the Bureau of Engraving, and many other buildings of equal interest. We also had the opportunity to see the Yale-Harvard crew race at New London on June 19. This was a very eventful day and I am sure that all were glad to have had the opportunity of seeing the race. .We passed one night in New Haven where we had a very pleasant evening being entertained by "Bill" Ciuardenier at his home. We were very fortunate in having good weather. Out of the five weeks of the cruise we had only about five days of rain altogether. We did, however, have some pretty heavy blows which did no damage but kept all hands pretty busy while they lasted. On Monday, June 29, we started from Sandy Hook for Atlantic City: however, when we had gone a short way, the sky looked threatening so the Captain turned back. This proved very lucky for no sooner had we dropped anchor in Sandy Hook again than a heavy gale hit us with driving rain, a storm which required both anchor and engine to keep the schooner from dragging. However, that was the only blow that we exper- ienced: for this we consider ourselves very fortunate. We arrived safely in Marion harbor Thursday, July 14, after a very successful and much enjoyed trip. -..,2+89+g.,,.- FORE'N'AFT dgfggfg..- Blctivities FORE'N'AF'I' 1926 Q00 . - - - f W- H- W- Y- my THE FALL DANCE HE evening of November 17 ushered in the first big social event of the year, the Fall Dance. The committee consisting of Nelson Weeks, Arnold Rich, "Bill" Bryden, Fred Woods, and "Ed" Milner, chairman, deserved the credit they got for making the dance a succeess. Mr. Bouve also did his bit in helping the committee out, for, as it was the first dance of the season. they had to break out the trail for others. The Weather was excellent, and the girls who came from the House in the Pines School had no trouble in getting here. New Bedford's best orchestra, by their excellent music did much towards making the dance a success. Mrs. Lillard, Mrs. Kern, Mrs. Beebe, and Miss Cornish were 'the patronesses for the evening. The hall was decorated in red and white streamers. and ice cream and cake was served during the in- termission. Those who attended spent a very enjoyable evening.

W ashburn Uppers Veazie's Syncopated Seven started what turned out to be the perfect end of a perfect day. The orchestra's snappy music did much to entertain between the scenes. The acts themselves were clever, and most of them very original: and they gave the audience many hearty laughs. At the end of the evening everyone was asked to vote as to who gave the best act. Washburn Uppers won by a large majority, receiving 44 votes to the nearest competitor's 16. Their act consisting of take-offs on various members of the Faculty was ex- cellent. lt was one "Bughouse Fable" from beginning to end, especially Vea- zie's impersonation of Captain Lillard which was not only a "Bughouse Fable" but too good to be true. "Chuck" Faye, as Mr. Faust, conducted an English class that seemed in the eyes of the audience the most perfect class they could ever wish to attend. M "Ed" Butterfield and "Pete" Lillard in Diagnosis. Our Specialty, represent- ing two surgeons, performed a very original operation on Colvin.

The operators, though lacking ether, kept the patient under control by frequent use of a mallet. Gilder House, assuming that it is hard to get something for nothing, cast their appeal for votes in the shape of marshmallows. Accordingly most of the action took place in the audience. If Macbeth were anything like the Washburn Lowers would have us think, it would probably be much more popular with the English classes who yearly study it. If Lady Macbeth were anything like "Joe" Lowe in size, it was no Wonder she "hen-peeked" Macbeth into a necking party with King Duncan,-Macbeth with a knife, Duncan with a neck to use the knife on. Tabor House, Bushnell House, anddl-Ieath House all did their best towards making the evening's entertainment a success. When it came time to go home, everyone, including our little Scotch boy, MacLean, decided he had had his money's worth. A VISIT TO THE "STUDENT PRINCE" HE football team finished the grind in fine style this year. After battling Thayer Academy to a standstill they headed for Boston to celebrate the ending of the season. The team scattered to various well known eating places and then in a cheerful mood met at the theatre. The favored show was the "Student Prince," and it proved a very likable light opera. The team thought it an enjoyable evening and a fitting celebration for the season's close. CHRISTMAS MUSICAL N Saturday evening, December 12, an informal dance and musical was held at the Academy. Guests were invited from New Bedford and the Tabor Girls' School. The Hrst selection on the program was "Hope March" by the school orchestra. The girls' Glee Club next sang A'Cantique de Noelf The chorus of boys sang "Holy Night." The boys' Cilee Club gave us two selections entitled, "We Meet Again To-night" and 'ADown in Mobile". We were also favored with some excellent solos. One was a soprano solo by Miss Phyllis Morse entitled "All Through the Night," and other was a violin solo by Mrs. Charles S. Mendell. The last two selections were the "First Noel" by the chorus and "Under the Holly" by the orchestra. The remaining part of the evening was spent in dancing, the music being furnished by the school orchestra. A TRUSTEE TALKS TO US UST after supper on January 14th the whole school was assembled in the Chapel. Everybody seemed glad: some were glad in expectation of what was coming: some because they would get out of study hour: and the rest glad 9 3 BM.- . i c s I E FORE'N'AFT 1926 em W , , new -M39 45, FORE'N'AFT 1926 '00, -. W.- WJ . 1 - IQ' because everybody else was. Those who had already seen and listened to Mr. Bushnell, who was to talk to the student body that night, knew how ine and interesting the speeches of Mr. Bushnell usually were. His talk that evening like his character was very fine and very interesfing. It was of an English blacksmith, Collier by name, who early in his life was taught to love God. He became inspired with the desire to preach and came to this country, which seemed to him to be a land of opportunities. He was very short of funds when he iinally settled down as a blacksmith in a little town near Philadelphia. Here he worked six days a week at his forge and preached on Sunday, not as a regular parson but just for the love of it. He was well liked in the community and was soon offered a position as the regular minister. Gradually his excellent preaching and interesting manner attracted the attention of a great many people. Finally he was offered a position in a great Chicago church. This church he built up with his convincing person- ality and flowing oratory until it ranked with the best in the United States. Then came the great Chicago fire which wiped out in a few hours what had taken him years to attain, church and home: nothing was spared. Did this daunt him? No! He immediately started to build another church, and he succeeded, too . . . All this was told to us by Mr. Bushnell to show that with the right spirit and will power to carry out one's ideas, anything can be accomplished. By always finishing what one has started and not letting it finish him, he will always succeed. This was the idea Mr. Bushnell put across to us. It was an excellent speech by an excellent man, and well worth, being remembered. THE SECOND STUNT NIGHT ATURDAY evening, January 23, the Boys' and the Girls' Schools gathered together for the second stunt night of the school year. The Glee Club and the Girls' School were added attractions, but the price of admission was not raised: so of course everybody attended. The evening's activities were startedby the Boys' Glee Club who gave Tabor's version of The Volga Boatmen Song. This is the first year the School has had a Glee Club, and the Club must be congratulated on their good work in breaking the path for later years. Next the Girls' School gave us what in their opinion was a perfect movie, or at least a Tabor Movie, orchestra included. They also revealed to us the difference in actions in a class room when the teacher is looking and when she is not. Colvin as the heroine in So this is Paris Green looked like a real lady, but when his husband, "Pete" Lillard, got him mad, he showed that clothes do not make the lady. "Bully Boy" Bausmith was the perfect hero in Three Speeds, a mellow melo-drama, who rescued the beautiful daughter, "Si" Chandler, from the villain, "Chuck" Faye. Emory Tobin acted the part of the perfect policeman in These Charmina Policemen, while Perry played the part of one not so perfect. Werrenratli as a lady acted his part gracefully in spite of his costume. -- +2149 5 FORE'N'AF'I'19 2 6 qfgf W 1 , WY, ,,,, W ,W-M, Y H- 7- lf-Sv 211 1-, -0934 Q 6 kg. ,, .. vlra-A FORE'N'AFT 1926 14620 . nf.

The incomparable Sherlock Holmes was also one of the caricatures given by Heath House in A Tragedy. One of the Faculty, Mr. Beebe, deciding that he could do anything a boy could do, put on askit of his own, The Little Wz'pers Theatre Company. It was the scene of a general's quarters just before a battle. If all wars were as portrayed in this scene, there wouldn't be much fighting in the future. Four couples from Bushnell House entertained the audience by giving an old fashioned square dance. The female dancers if not dressed old fashioned were at least dressed originally. Many people thought most of the dancing was original, too. The program was concluded by dancing, and the music was furnished by Veazie's Syncopated Seven. THE JUNIOR PROMENADE HE second big social event of the year was the Junior Promenade held I on the evening of February 6th. The committee in charge were: Rufus Soule, chairman: Arnold Rich: Nelson Weeks: Rowland Mackay: and Charles Mendell. 'The patronesses were: Mrs. Bailey: Mrs. Somers: Mrs. Faust: and Mrs. Lillard. The same excellent orchestra that has played for other dances duringnthe year furnished the music. The walls were tastefully decorated in blue and white streamers, and the class numerals were prominently in evidence. Clever dance orders were used. Contrary to former custom at Tabor the boys were permitted to Wear tuxedos to this dance, a departure which lent dignity and attractiveness to the affair. The committee is to be congratulated on the careful planning and management of the dance. AN EVENING WITH DOCTOR ERNEST BRADLEE WATSON D URING the latter part of February, the school had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Ernest Bradlee Watson. On a Friday night before the movies he gave a talk on Shakespeare with some very clever interpreting of the character of Falstaff from "King Henry V." He also read and interpreted the love scene from the same play between Princess Katherine of France and King Henry. After this reading he entertained at the Anchor Club by giving a very interesting talk about the Greeks as sailors, and also told of a few narrow escapes he had at sea during the war. He spoke too, of the Turk as being a courageous and good soldier. Part of this he said was due to their religion which promised happiness in future life if they died on the field of battle. Both talks were enjoyed very much. -..ffQ7Eg,,,- FORE'N'AFT' 1926 em .. . L. L L-. .....,D, mv ADDRESS BY MAJOR HITCHCOCK HE school was given a delightful treat on Monday evening, March llth, through the courtesy of Major A. B. Hitchcock of the Army General Staff. Major Hitchcock spoke on what our armies would do in case of another war and how they would go about it. By means of a map he explained just how one of our armies would launch an attack on the enemy. Throughout his entire talk he stressed the fact that in order to have the attack successful, there must be perfect co-ordination and teamwork among the troops. One mistake or failure in bringing up a certain detachment of men or in reenforcing some part in the line of attack, would be disastrous to the American forces. He explained the work of the officers on the General Staff and showed that although they did not actually fight, if it were not for their correct information and intelligent conception of the various situations, the attack would be nothing at all. With these men controlling the levers everything would proceed like clockwork. It would be like a huge machine well oiled and running smoothly. Major Hitchcock's talk was greatly appreciated and served as a very pleasant break in the everyday routine of the school. ADDRESS BY DR. CHARLES E. PARK A VERY interesting address was given by Dr. Charles E. Park on Sunday evening, April eleventh. Dr. Park discussed ship building in America from the time of the early settlers till the year, 1853. He showed the develop- ment of the clipper ship very graphically by means of lantern slides. He con- trasted America's progress in ship building with that of England and the other countries. America was the Hrst to build the practical clipper ship which Eng- land copied soon afterwards. The clipper ship era was short lived, however, as the boats were built for speed rather than for carrying capacity. Records show that many of these ships have equalled many of the speed records made by some modern steamships. THE GIRLS' SCHOOL DANCE AFEW weeks after school was well under way, a cordial invitation was extended to the members of Washburn and Tabor Halls to attend an informal dance at the Girls' School. A phonograph furnished the music for dancing, and a group of songsters entertained by singing popular pieces. Mr. Bouve led the lads and lassies in a Paul Jones which added a great deal to the fun of the evening. SECRETARY ROOSEVELT'S TALK T the beginning of the fall term upon a rather cool autumn night the senior class was invited to listen to an informal speech given by Mr. Franklin D. Roosevelt, former assistant secretary of the Navy during Wilson's admin-- 9 3 jg..- FORE'N'AFT 1926 ues . f - . --..f.f.f.E.,...E E ,mo istration. The group assembled in the Anchor Club Rooms, and a log fire gave warmth and cheer to the atmosphere. Mr. Roosevelt began by telling of the difficulties with which the Navy had to contend at the beginning of the World War, the lack of trained officers, the inadequacy of. transports, and the smallness of the fieet. He told of the explosive mines and the submarines, and related some humorous incidents that happened during the war period. He explained the method with which our army transports were conducted safely to foreign shores and concluded by answering questions upon any phase of the war. lt was truly an appreciative audience who were indeed grateful to Mr. Roosevelt for his fine talk. CAPTAIN TILTON'S SPEECH ARLY last fall the Tabor Boy and the school truck transported the student body of Tabor to Colonel Green's estate, South Dartmouth, Massa- chusetts. The object of this expedition was to see the old whaling ship, Charles W. Morgan. We were told that there would be a veteran Whaler on board who would tell us about whaling when it was at its prime: but unfor- tunately he was not there, and we had to be contented with the rather vague promise that sometime he would talk to us. Several weeks later it was announced in Chapel that in the afternoon we would attend an illustrated lecture in the gymnasium. Capt. Tilton, who was to have spoken to us when we visited the old whaling ship, was going to show us some pictures as well as talk to us. At three-thirty the student body was assembled, everyone trying to 'think what sort of person an old whaling man would be. When he got up on the stage, there was no need of his resorting to vocal efforts to attract attention. Everybody was curious to see what this man of an almost forgotten profession was like: and his size would have attracted anyone. Capt. Tilton's tale was well worth listening to. He told us of his ad- ventures in traveling, from a camp of wrecked Whalers on the northern-most bit of land, down the western side of North America to Alaska. All this was done in mid-winter when it was often fifty miles from one Eskimo hut to another. The temperature was about twenty-five below zero most of the time, and sometimes dropped much lower. The first leg of his journey to save his companions from starvation was made alone: and until he hired the services of an Eskimo and his wife, he had rather rough going. His story was one of amazing luck and perseverance, filled with a quantity of sea adven- tures. He did what was considered impossible, and even his employers did not believe he had done the feat until they saw him. When he had finished, we were all convinced that Capt. Tilton had had some adventures worth bragging about: and we all wished he had told us more. -.,,.,5f9 9 ig..- MU, ---iQ100+1rf-- RE'N'AFT S., K- .XX-.fxl HU, .-1.1. . ,.- 235.9 fl: - Q V '-,f 153441 The End F We Alrtngraphn M-fu J ,.f.- ,- ly.. ., ,. , . 1 ,. , ,'1..,,.. nh, 1 ,nl lmiMmv:w:'14, Axfxviii' "ki8Tg'e-5-n,.LL,i1,a'.4 ' -' 1 3: 'M2!H.::.1ss,n-Z'n7P.zri3.2Ll1?u'A'-524211 . .
