The purpose of this section is twofold: First, to comment generally upon what has come before our notice during the past year, and, second, to bring the faculty and the student body in closer connection by presenting the students' side of several questions. The February Classes N spite of the unbelief of the doubtful, the success of the midyear class plan is assured. The February class organiza- tions now seem to be on as firm a basis as the june classes. To be sure, they are not so large, but each year brings nearly even division between the number entering in midwinter and fall. The matter of the CRIOLE has been successfully settled this year. The nominating committee picked from the two junior classes decided that the midyear class should have two of the positions on the board and the 1914 class the others. Any other class that sees fit can change this and have the editor- in-chief from the September class if it is desirable. The 1912M class "prom" at the Hotel Kimball was one of the most successful ever held at "Tech," Can the midyear class give a "prom" worthy of the school? The class of 'IZM answered this question. It means a half year saved in a good many cases, and even if a fellow is going to college, a half year to work in or to make up some required subjects by going back to school is surely acceptable. The half year plan seems to be working. In a short while there will be no difference between the two classes and we gladly foresee the time when the members of the F eb- 12 THE 1915 ORIOLE ruary classes will not feel out of place. Let us try to make the rnost of the condition and make our school in every part, even to the abused half-year classes, the best. The Oriole HE crisis is past-the 1913 ORIOLE is a success. After two years of indifferent support and financial deficits the ORIOLE is again on its feet. The school understood at the first of the year that, if sufhcient interest was not shown to support a school annual, we would have none-but the school did its part. A comparatively large percentage subscribed for a book, but there is still no reason Why the student body to the last man should not buy an ORIOLE. Each person, it seems, can afford seventy-five cents for such a worthy cause. More- over the fact that one of these little books, when all the expenses are reckoned, costs about one dollar and twenty-five cents, proves conclusively that you are getting your money's worth. Contributions have been encouraging. Friends have been ready to help us, tickets for the entertainments have sold well, and we have been able to get together enough money and ma- terial to publish a book which We believe is representative and creditable to the school. But We have not tried to make a book so elaborate and so extravagant that in future years, when the class does not have as great financial success, they will feel that they cannot put as much into the annual and con- sequently that their book is unsatisfactory. We have tried this year to establish a standard, which we believe other classes can well equal, without going beyond their means. The ORIOLE is on its feet. Let us all boom it. Next year right from the first, talk ORIOLE. Save your jokes, draw pic- tures, write stories, remember your class activities from the beginning of school. Get busy, and remember that the ORIOLE stands for "Tech," and that "Tech" stands for efficiency. Friday Morning Exercises NE of the features of life at "Tech" is the Friday morning exercises. Since the coming of the school to its present build- ing, it has been a custom to set aside a day, usually Friday, THE 1915 ORIOLE 13 of each week for some literary or musical program in the as- sembly hall. Before this year when twenty-minute study periods were allowed before school, the assembly was placed in this period, somewhat lengthened. This year, since this before- school period has been eliminated, a new plan of skipping one period in succession each Friday has been originated. This gives full time for any program that the committee may arrange. This lengthened period for exercises is greatly appreciated by the students and by the committee. The committee this year has been most active, and every program has been a success and well received. The programs have been varied. The delightful musicals, coming several times during the year, are very pleasing, while the literary part is well arranged and much enjoyed by all. For all this, the committee, and especially the general chairman, deserve great credit. The committee has been very successful in arranging special programs in observance of the holidays. A glance at the programs in a later section clearly shows the good work the students have done in entertaining throughout the past year. Little plays suggestive of holidays, interesting speeches, artistic musical programs, and business presented from the platform in a way no other school does, have made "Tech" unique. Local Criticism O ORIOLE would be complete without some mention of the need of local improvements. A bare, unsightly building "Tech " has long ceased to be. In most of the rooms hang pictures, the library is beautifully decorated with reproductions of art, and even the gymnasium walls are covered with banners and trophies. It is this that makes a building attractive. There is still space for more pictures or decorations of any sort and some means by which each class can leave such a gift to the school should be devised. A matter which needs attention is that of the bulletin boards on each side of the main door of the gymnasium. We are very fortunate in having such fine places to put posters and notices, but it is regrettable that the cases are so situated that the dim- ness of the light takes from their attractiveness. This could 14 THE 1915 ORIOLE easily be remedied by putting on each side a lamp bracket, thereby immensely improving both the value and the appear- ance of our bulletins. This section would not be complete without a word about the need of a third floor passage. We learn from an indefinite source that one is at last planned and will be constructed as soon as possible. It is to be hoped that the city property committee has taken the matter in hand, and that next fall the much-needed third floor passage will be in use. n . The Kate Stanley Memorial Fund NQUESTIONABLY the greatest undertaking ever begun at the Technical High School is the Kate Stanley Memorial Fund. On the death of Miss Stanley, June 1st, 1912, some memorial to keep her memory ever in the hearts of "Tech" students was at once planned. A tablet or some object in a conspicuous place was the most natural thing to think of. But those who knew Miss Stanley best felt that such would never have been her desire. Before this time, there had existed in the school what was known as the ORIOLE Fund. It was a fund, started by Miss Stanley, into which, each year that the ORIOLE was a paying investment, the surplus money was togbe put, and, in case of debt, the fund was to pay the deficit. However, this was not Miss Stanley's whole purpose in originating the fund. It was expected that this would grow and in time serve the purpose that was foremost in Miss Stanley's mind-as a scholarship fund to help worthy students in the further pursuance of their studies. But the ORIOLE never made enough money to make this plan practical. Here was our opportunity to form a lasting memorial to Miss Stanley, one most suggestive of her noble spirit, and one that at the same time would carry out her dearest ambition. So the money from the QRIOLE Fund was legally turned over to the Kate Stanley Memorial Fund. The desire was to make the total sum equal to one thousand dollars before this June. For the purpose of raising money, the services of Miss Edith Wynne Mathison were secured for a reading. A large sum of money was hereby realized, and, swelled by subscriptions from the citizens of Springfield and friends of the school, the fund THE 1915 ORIOLE 15 has been increased at the present date to between eight hun- dred and seventy-five and nine hundred dollars. As yet our alumni have made no organized effort to help. A circular letter passed among them would be a commendable means of increasing the fund. Each graduate of "Tech," it seems, would be willing to give a small sum for such a cause. Organization among the alumni is all that is needed to raise the desired amount. Never has the school attempted a greater or nobler work than the establishmentgof this fund. Interest in it must not die out, and let the students next year devise some means by which the fund can be increased until it serves its purpose-to assist worthy students in continuing their studies. An A ppreciatidn HE ORIOLE Board find themselves greatly indebted to many in the school, some for contributions, some for drawings, and a number for help in getting together and arranging material. If we could not use what you passed in, We are just as grateful to you for your efforts. You have helped make the book a success. VVe thank you. THE 1913 ORIOLE 17 WARNER, CHARLES F. ADAMS, BURTON A.

BOYLE From the Alumni to the School In past years we feel that the alumni have not been appro- priately represented in the ORIOLE. just a word from the "Tech" graduates who are now in college will be greatly ap- preciated by the undergraduate body. The following letters have been received from the members of the alumni representing various New England colleges. Any means by which the alumni and the undergraduates are brought into closer con- nection is to be commended. Hoping that these letters may influence some undecided Seniors in their choice of college, we let the following pages speak for themselves. From the Mass. Institute of Technology "Are you going to college? If so, are you interested in studies dealing with medicine, law, divinity, journalism, or agriculture? If these subjects have no enchantments for you. what I have to say concerning another line of education, namely engineering, may be of interest to you. "Professional men to-day are not rare. In fact, they are so numerous that many can hardly get a livelihood. The only professional man making a success, in this era of specialization, is the expert. The engineering field is no exception. There, as well as in other professions, none but men of exceptionally good training and of extraordinary ability are ranking among those who succeed. If you want to be an engineer, get your training at the proper place. The Massachusetts Institute of 20 THE 1915 ORIOLE Technology ranks among the foremost schools of its kind in the world. "All the courses at Technology are broad in their scope. It is not the purpose of the school merely to turn out specialists, but rather to turn out broad-minded engineers. 'Tech' author- ities contend that, to do this, it is necessary to give their students a general engineering training in addition to the specializing in the chosen profession. Besides, they believe that students should devote as much time as possible in a technical school to cultural studies. So you will find that Technology graduates are not merely skillful engineers, but all-round educated men. 'iAn important factor with many students is that of ex- pense. I will say that Boston is not a very cheap place to live in. Besides this inconvenience, there are expenses of tuition, books, and laboratory fees. These are by no means small. A very thrifty student could get along on S600 per year. To the student of small means, even this sum seems large. How- ever, a person with ordinary ability and with the determination to get an education will find it is not impossible at M. I. T. "The person sufficiently interested in Technology who has read as far as this, would probably like to hear a word about new Tech. It is hoped that the class entering in the fall of 1915 will occupy the new buildings. New Technology bids fair to be something out of the ordinary. , The site for the new build- ings, which is on the Charles River, is a splendid one. There are to be beautiful grounds, a grand athletic field, a modern gymnasium, and the best of dormitories, as well as an exquisite clubhouse. It is needless to say that in addition we are to have the very best of equipment in the way of laboratories and apparatus. Those of you coming to the Institute at such a time as to get the opportunities that new Technology will have to offer are certainly to be envied." lsignedl IQR. G. BOUSQUET, T. H. S. '11. From Amherst l'An alumnus of 'Tech' does not forget the school very soon,-at least, I have found that he doesn't. It is very easy and interesting for one of us to follow what is going on back at 'Tech ' in the years that are passing on. Amherst is near enough THE 1913 ORIOLE 21 to be reachable, and yet far enough away to give the opportunities of college life. It is a college for those who want to get some- thing really worth while, and I only wish that 'Tech' could send some good men up, to swell the numbers of the Springnelcl delegation." lsignedl SIDNEY D. C1-IAMBERLAIN, T. H. S. '10. From Clark "I am indeed glad of the opportunity to avail myself of your invitation to tell the pupils of the Technical High School through the columns of the QRIOLE a little bit about Clark College. "Clark College is a distinctive college in that it offers a young man a regular course of study leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in three years. Tuition and most expenses are at a minimum. The Clark faculty is composed of young men of high ability and is nearly in the proportion of one in- structor for every five students. The group system of studies in force provides for thorough training in a major subject, familiarity with two minor subjects, and a considerable amount of elective work. "For the man of high ability who intends to earn the whole or part of his expenses, Worcester offers most unrivaled oppor- tunities for many and varied kinds of employment on evenings and Saturdays. Owing to the fact that time is at a premium we have no intercollegiate athletics. The physical side of Clark 'training is not neglected, however. Attendance at gymnasium is compulsory and class series in football, basket- ball, and baseball are run off each year. A fall and spring track meet holds the attention of the cinder path enthusiasts, and tennis tournaments are held twice each year by men in- terested in that sport. "Debating is our intercollegiate activity and usually three debates with colleges in New England are scheduled. The men with musical ability or aspirations find opportunity for excellent training and much enjoyment in the glee and mandolin clubs. The 'Clubs' give a number of concerts in neighboring cities and towns in which the social element predominates quite as much as the musical. A majority of the men are enrolled in one or 22 THE 1915 ORIOLE the other of the six Greek letter fraternities, but a man's stand- ing with the college is in no way iniiuenced by the fact that he is a 'frat' man or that he is not. "Almost without exception men from 'Tech' who have en- tered Clark have done exceedingly well. The thorough train- ing afforded by the Springfield Technical High School is the best possible preparation for work here, and to 'Tech' men who may decide that Clark is the place for them to receive their college education I extend a most hearty welcome." lsignedl JOHN T. WARD, T. H. S. '09. From the Mass. Agricultural College "lf any of you fellows have an idea that you might be in- terested in any branch of agriculture or the natural sciences, you can find no better place to pursue these subjects than the Massachusetts Agricultural College. Here one can specialize in agriculture, horticulture, iloriculture, fruit-growing, or in the natural sciences of entomology, bacteriology, Zoology, and botany. The instruction in all of these courses is excellent, because the professors are all experts in their lines, and that brings me to an important point:- "It is this,-whatever line youfinally settle on, find out where you can get the very best courses in that profession and go there. If it costs more to go there than to some other places, Wait a little longer before you go, but get there. If there is no one direction in which your tastes seem to run, don't be in a hurry about choosing, but go ahead to any good college, if it is your good fortune to be able to, and take a general educational course. At the same time take a crack at the things you con- sider possibilities for a life occupation, choose the one you like best, and then do what the old motto up in the 'Tech' drawing room says, 'Get Busyf "Outside of the courses at M. A. C. there is much to com- mend the college to your consideration. There is a good clean bunch of fellows up here and most of them are here for business rather than pleasure, which is not the case in some colleges. There is a spirit of democracy, which causes the best man to be recognized as the best, and gives every one a chance according to his qualifications. Athletics are prospering and the outlook THE 1915 ORIOLE 23 is bright for greater prosperity in the future. We have the best coaches in football and baseball, and a fellow with athletic aspirations will find here all of the major sports. "Now for a few observations on college life in general. Of course the first and foremost thing a man goes to college for is study and mental development in definite directions, therefore you should give the books and 'profs' conscientious attention and interest. It will be to your benefit and personal satis- faction if you do, and you will surely regret it if you don't. But the man makes a serious mistake, who goes to college with good scholarship as his only ambition. You must cultivate the acquaintance and friendship of your fellow students. College activities, too, should form a part of your curriculum. If you can sing a little, go out for the glee club, if you can shoot a basket occasionally, or make a bluff that you are a football player, make a try for the class teams, if you can't make the varsity. The point is this,-identify yourself with some of the activities outside of your studies. In this way you meet men, and broaden out more than you realize. A' In college the faculty allows you much more freedom than you are accustomed to in High School. Any time when you don't have a class scheduled during the day, you are free to go and come as you please. There is no 'prof' keeping tabs on you and it is up to you whether or not you improve your time or waste it. This is only an instance illustrating the general principle that what a man makes of himself in college depends entirely upon himself. It isn't up to your dad, or your High School, or the college faculty, it's up to you." fsignedl CLYDE M. PACKARD, T. H. S. '09. From Yale "I answer your request with a genuine feeling that I cannot in such a brief space adequately represent Yale for the alumni. The Technical High School as well as the Central High School holds an enviable position in the esteem of Yale authorities. Not many men have come to Yale from 'Tech,' but those who have come have kept 'Tech's' record unspotted. Two years ago Professor Chittenden, director of Yale's Scientific School, wrote a letter of Commendation to Mr. Warner on the men he had sent to Yale. We certainly are proud of the men who came 24 THE 1913 ORIOLE from 'Tech,' and look to the graduating class to uphold the good record by sending a good bunch of men this year. "At the time we entered Yale the entrance requirements were at variance with the usual studies pursued in the college preparatory course at 'Tech.' This year Yale has revisedzher requirements so that the high schools are placed on an equal footing with the big preparatory schools. The entire aim of the new system is to make the field of entrance subjects as broad as is consistent. A man is judged not by 'catchy' ex- aminations but by fair tests, for evidence of good general schol- arship and ability. While no certificates are accepted from any school, the results of the examinations may be weighed in con- nection with the candidate's school record, wherever this is submitted. This new regulation is especially devised to make access to Yale easier for those high school boys of exceptional ability who for any reason have not been able to follow exactly the courses of preparatory study prescribed. As a result of these changed entrance requirements we look to 'Tech' to send more and more men to profit from the exceptional opportunities offered at Yale for broad and scientific training. "Yale, like every other college or university, has its own customs and traditions to which it clings most tenaciously. Yale is especially blessed with her customs, and we feel that they add a great deal to the charm of the college life there. We have our customs and traditionsg we have our social times and study periods. Outsiders think we are queer, but when you join the Yale ranks and catch the real Yale Spirit, all these oddities fall into line and become the natural course of events. "If the men thinking of college will accept a few words of advice from a 'grad' who has neither a bald head nor gray hair, he will promise to be brief. Hundreds of men come to Yale with the social or athletic aim and find, when they just manage to pass, that after all their idea of college was fundamentally wrong. College is to prepare a man for his life work. Con- sequently scholarship is the shaft on which the wheel of college life really revolves. Each outgoing Senior Class at Yale votes on the question, 'What distinction did you most prize during the college course?' Each year the vote is overwhelmingly in favor of the Phi Beta Kappa key, the badge of scholarship. Next in order comes the making of the 'Y' on the major athletic teams, and third choice is the owl watch-charm which one gets THE 1915 ORIOLE 25 for being on the RECORD,-the literary distinction. But the key that locks the wheel to the shaft is the golden key of college friendships. Although you may not admire Shakespeares character, Polonius, you would do well to take seriously his advice to his son in the play 'Hamlet,' when he says, 'Those friends thou hast and their adoption tried, grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steelf No friendships are so lasting and worth while as college friendships. They are usually formed in the first years of the college course. lfVhether they are for good or bad depends on the character of the men chosen as friends. "Yale has no place for the man without a serious purpose. She expects a certain degree of scholarship of every son and she expects him to excel in some one of the 'extra-curriculum activities' These comprise athletic, musical, Y. M. C. A., dram- atic and literary activities, besides many minor interests which may be participated in. But Yale, like all other colleges, has her floundering sons who go through their course without making either a clear failure or a noteworthy success. Yale knows her floundering sons, and because she teaches them, sooner or later, no longer to flounder, Yale is the mother of men. "Whatever we may conceive the function of a university to be, Yale, like all academic colleges, is fundamentally a center of thought. The college has one purpose, which is the greatest, because it is unique: To send out men who have the ability and desire to think,-men who will think clearly and compre- hensively for other objects than those of immediate personal benent. If there is one thing only in all this paper that I hope will be remembered by those who expect to enter college, it is this 2-Learn how to study efficiently and to think logically and naturally to conclusions. HFinally let me leave a few words with the prospective candidates which an older graduate gave me when I entered college. They were these, 'Go in and do your level best every day, in every course, every term, and don't get a swelled head. ' " fsignedl WALTER T. HUME, T. H. S.

VVaves of mountainous height rolled across the angry sea and dashed against the rocky coasts. The fierce high winds, traveling at a rate of many miles an hour, blew the summits of the huge green masses of water into spray which dashed against the steep sides of icebergs slowly drifting from the North. Far above the treacherous waves and beyond the claws of the murderous ice, rode the good dirigible "Tech '13." The airship, it is true, was having a hard time to make progress, but, like the class for which she was named, she was getting there slowly and surely. just as of old the good class '13 had fought and van- quished Addison, Johnson, Burns, and Burke, so now was this winged boat fighting and mastering the powers of Nature. Sheltered in the pilot house from the force of the elements outside were three men. The first, easily recognized as Captain Ernest Smith, was certainly in great anxiety. From time to time he would pace the room and regard the barometer and chronometer fastened on the wall. The second individual, evidently in the same frame of mind, was the pilot "jack" Donnellan. Now he would glance anxiously at the heavens in order to see if there were signs of better weather, now he would look far below him at the briny deep to ascertain the dis- tance between the airship and the same, and thus prevent his boat from dashing into the clutches of ice and water. The third person, however, was sprawled half on a chair and half on the floor, as he was wont to do in the good old high school days. The latter, who distinguished himself as Earl Cross, was apparently unconcerned with the state of affairs gcing on outside, for he paid not the slightest attention to the remarks of captain and pilot. " Pretty tough weather," observed the captain. "Yes, very," responded the pilot. "Do you think the '13 will survive this unusual storm?" THE 1913 ORIOLE 49 "Certainly, certainly," answered the captain, nodding his head affirmatively. "This airship was built to stand such storms as this. But I fear it will go hard with seagoing vessels in this gale." "Yes, I would hate to take any chances riding on a boat to-day, myself. Those waves are not to my liking." "Well, I guess this won't last long. The barometer has already risen a little, and the sky appears somewhat lighter in the west. I shouldn't wonder if we had a fine day to-morrow." The captain's prophecy proved true. The sun shone from a cloudless sky the following day, and the waves had returned to their normal size. The same three individuals occupied the pilot house again on this beautiful morning, and all, even Cross, were plainly in a jolly mood. "The air at this height is glorious," remarked the captain. "Why, it reminds me of the hydrogen sulphide incident at ATech.' " A'What was that?" questioned the other two at the same breath. ' "Don't you know? Oh, yes, I forgot you were not in my 'Math' class the fifth period during our last year at 'Tech.' Well, it Went this way. You probably know what the char- acteristic odor of hydrogen sulphide is. Oh, you don't? In order to recognize the stuff when you see it, I will say that it has the odor of eggs in the very advanced stage of existence. Somebody in the class thought he would try an experiment, so accordingly, he brought some of the stuff to class. At an unexpected moment he let the rest of us know that he had it with him. You never saw such a stampede! However, in a short time, we were able to resume our lessons,-thanks to the efficient ventilating system at 'Techf " After this recital had been concluded, the three burst into laughter and did not recover for some time. Suddenly, Smith and Donnellan were startled by the cry of Cross who had gone to one of the side windows in order to gain fresh air after Capt. Smith's narration. "Come here, quick! What do you make that white speck yonder to be? It looks to me like a rowboat. But what would a rowboat be doing in the middle of the ocean, unless some ship-" 50 THE 1915 ORIOLE "Tell the men to get the hydroplane ready," interrupted the captain. "We will go yonder and investigate. Mean- while, I shall examine the boat more closely with my binoculars." "I can see several men there, but, as yet, they are too dis- tant to determine definitely who they are," remarked Don- nellan. "Yes, I see several men," responded Smith. "One is a rather lanky individual. Do you know whom he makes me think of? No? Well, 'Doctor' Norton, or my name's not Smith. Yes, sir, it's he. I see another who looks familiar. I'll eat my coat if it's not 'Fat' Richards. But what are they doing out here in the ocean?" In a short time the party from the rowboat had been moved from their perilous position to the cabin of the airship, where they told their tale after they had recovered from their exhaustion. Richards, acting as spokesman, commenced. "Soon after I left 'Tech,' I went to Greenland where I dis- covered an unknown mineral which I called 'antipodesf Real- izing the great value of the same, I returned to America to make known my discovery. At last, I secured Dr. Norton and the rest of us here to go with me to Greenland to investigate this mag- nificent discovery of mine. Halfway there, Caldwell, always looking for something to shoot at, managed to kill an albatross. Yesterday, as a consequence of such a deed, that great storm arose and the ship sprang a leak. All hope of saving her was given up and we set out in this rowboat. How we ever man- aged to keep our boat from being smashed to pieces, I don't know. But anyway, here we are. There is one thing I would like to know, however, and that is what are you doing in this dirigible, that you should come at an opportune time to rescue us from a watery grave?" "Oh," answered Donnellan, "we belong to the Coast Guard. Cross is the supervisor, Smith, the captain, and I bear the name of pilot. We were on the lookout for vessels in distress when we sighted you. But now while we are about it, let's talk over the old times we had at 'Tech.' " The others agreed and that evening the party gathered around the table, like the knights in the days of King Arthur, and recalled the fond memories of times never to return. "Those were happy days," commenced Sheldon, 'Awe THE 1915 ORIOLE 51 didn't realize how happy they were until we missed them, did we, fellows?" "You're right," rejoined the bunch. "Do you remember how big we felt when we entered 'Tech' for the irst time, and how little we really were when, a few moments later, we were the chief attraction for a motley group of students standing in front of the Assembly Hall doors?" asked Birchard, who was a member of the party just rescued from the sea. "Yes, and wasn't our class slow in getting organized? I haven't forgotten yet the difficulties encountered in holding class meetings during our second year at 'Tech,"' chimed in Willard, another member of the bunch. "But when we got started, we were all right. VVhy, I don't believe that there was ever so much spirit shown in any class that ever graduated from high school. The members were so faithful to their class that they even skipped chorus to attend the meetings. VVe always had a large attendance at our meetings. That is some- thing to be proud of, I'm sure." "How about the orange and black book we turned out in our junior Year? Some gorgeous thing with its glaring plumage, wasn't it? Do you remember, fellows, the great auction sale we had to get rid of the superfiuous birds? I nearly die laughing when I think of the two stocky auctioneersf' " Don't forget the socials we had," put in Burt, "we had some jolly times all right. Remember the punch at our junior dance, wasn't that delicious? and also the cider we had at our Thanks- giving Social, and-" "Say, Burt," interrupted Pyne, "can't you talk about any- thing else but socials and dances? Why not talk about our famous athletes once in a while? There's 'Hobie' johnson, for instance. In football he was like a stonewall when he played on the defensive, and like a deer when on the offensive." "Sure," broke in Donnellan, "don't forget 'Ernie' Smith here. He was some athlete. What would 'Tech' or the three high schools have done without such fellows as Smith, johnson, Birchard, Britton, and the rest? I tell you if it had not been for the athletes in our class, the whole Athletic Association would have gone to smash." "What about that minstrel show we put on the stage at 'Tech' during our third year there? Wasn't it fine? You bet 52 THE 1915 ORIOLE it wash the best show ever given by colored comedians on the 1Tech' platform. It was successful in financial results at least, notwithstanding the stale jokes." "Speaking about shows, you don't want to forget that play we gave in order to raise graduation expenses. Again, the renowned dramatic ability of our class was put into the lime light, and the treasury was Hlled. Besides, our dramatic ability was shown in other plays not connected particularly with our class, as in the 'Oriole Matinee' and the 'Society Circus' " "You remind me of graduation when you mention the 'Ro- mancers,"' stated Birchard. "People say that thirteen is an unlucky number, but they are mistakeng for I think we were fortunate to be the first class to hold graduation in the Audi- torium. We were again lucky to be the first class to have its 'Prom' in the Auditorium." "What do you say, fellows?" proposed Capt. Smith. "Let's have a bumper for the old school and especially to the class of 1913, the best all around class that ever left the doors of 'Techf " And they did. THE 1915 omouf: 53 Senior Prophecy One bright morning in June, 1926, a train speeding towards Springfield carried with it a lonely traveler of thirty odd years. He was well dressed, and had the bearing of a quiet gentleman. But as the train neared the f'City of Homes," this passenger seemed excited, and kept going to the door of the coach, and viewing the approaching city. When the train pulled in at the magnificent station, he was the first to jump to the platform. He shouted a direction to a waiting taxi driver and in a few seconds was riding rapidly down Main Street toward the Post Office. The crowds on the streets, the string of cars and autos, all appeared new to the traveler, but, as the auto grazed the curb, his thoughts were interrupted. After paying his bill, he turned and beheld, not the old Post Office, but a beautiful new structure of white marble, which was open to the public for the first time that very day. Upon entering the building, he was amazed at the vastness of it, the electrical effects, and the number of offices for the employees, and, after studying the signs for some time, he at last chose one reading, 'fPostmaster." Entering the room and explaining his business to the clerk, he was admitted to a private office in the rear. "Good afternoon," a voice rang out. "Good afternoon," answered the caller. "Well, what can I do for you?" asked the Postmaster. " l've come from Oakland, California, to attend the opening of the new Post Office. My name is Willard." 'fGlad to know you, Mr. Will-, say, did you say your name was Willard-W-i-l-l-a-r-d? " "Why, yes," answered the astonished visitor. "Any relation to the Willard who went to 'Tech' in 1913?" asked the Postmaster. "That's myself again," answered the bewildered gentleman. 54 THE 1915 ORIOLE "Well, don't you know me, Al? I'm Russell, Waldo, the boys used to call me." "I certainly am in luck," responded Willard, "for I little dreamed the Postmaster of this handsome building was a mem- ber of the good old class of '13. By the way, Waldo, have you ever run across any of our pals, or heard from any of them? Do you know, I'd like jolly well to see some of them now, just to remind us of our grand days at 'Tech.' " "Well, what about yourself, AI? Where have you been since you left here?" "Oh, I entered VVorcester Tech, as you know, and after graduating, I was offered the position of professor of Mechanical Engineering out in Oakland, which I gladly accepted, and say, old boy, I finally succeeded in getting 'Dot."' "All to the merry," exclaimed Russell. "I'm also married, and to none other than Hazel Higgins. Yes, I did wait a few years after graduation, but not long. Our home is one of the happiest in Springfield." "Say, Al, as I was coming to work last Sunday, whom should I see walking down Main Street but our old chum, 'Zip ' Connelly, and his mate, 'Lil' La Bonte. 'Zip' is now a mason contractor, and makes enough at it to allow 'Lil' to wear the latest styles from Paris." "And 'Mil' Gibbons and 'Sandy' gHart, are they married?" asked Willard, who was becoming interested. "No," answered Russell. "You'll be surprised to hear that after graduating from West Point, and serving as a Captain, 'Sandy' went back to Pittsfield, where he married his old sweet- heart, and 'Mil' is now superintendent of the kindergarten department at the Chestnut Street School, commanding ex- cellent wages. 'Fat' Lantz married that little girl we used to see him with so often, and now owns one of the largest garages in the city. Frances Cooper has married Leon Spear, and settled down in a cozy little cottage in some Vermont village. That McNamara girl, I've forgotten her first name, is also married, and has two or three children so they say. That takes in all the married ones, now for those poor unfortunatesf' "How about B. Powell?" asked Willard. "Oh, yes, I remember you always did take a great interest in her. Well, you couldn't guess in a hundred years what it is she is doing, so I'll tell you. She took Eva Tanguay's place, THE 1913 ORIOLE 55 when the latter resigned. Yes, she's doing nicely. I believe it was last March that I saw her at the 'New Springfield' "You certainly remember that slim girl who sat in the same row with you-what was her name-oh, Whitehouse, that's it. Well, a friend of mine, oh, you know him, Maloney, the basket ball player, was injured at the game in New York, and just to-day he came back from the Massachusetts General Hospital, and told of the splendid nursing he received while there, and come to find out, his nurse was our old classmate. f'Mt. Holyoke College was never so prosperous as it has been since Marion Nash became its President. Grace Ganley, after graduating from there, accepted a position as teacher of modern languages in the college. "Ruth Macready is perfectly happy and contented, as head clerk in the office of the New England Telephone Company. Rose Wheeler, after graduating from Pratt Institute, went to Chicago to teach design." "Why! look at that window," cried 'Al' Willard, pointing at the windows of an office across the street, " those names seem familiar." "Why, yes, but you don't give me time to finish with the girls first. Those offices belong to McKenna and Donegan, Incorporated Architects. Why, there is 'Mc' now, just leav- ing the building. Wait a minute, and I'll get him in to join this happy family." "Hello, 'Al,"' cried McKenna, as he spied his old school chum, "when Waldo said he had you here, I told him to go to the other place. But say, old chap, wouldn't it be great to be in one of those sixth period German classes again?" 4'fRight you are, but have you ever heard from any of the bunch?" "You remember Bennie Wells? Well, he's as studious as ever, and is now President of the new college out in Texas. And I saw Pyne the other day in Newark. He was doing a little of everything, and not much of anything, by the way, he was strolling along the street, you know, as if he owned the street and everything else near him." f'And 'Al,"' added McKenna, "you remember 'Senior Dope,' the old 1913 class publication of which Huestis and myself were Contributing Editors? Huestis is now cartoonist for 'Dope', the most noted monthly magazine on the market." 56 THE 1915 ORICLE "Freedman is the best Woman's tailor in town, and has certainly made good at it." " I saw by this morning's paper," said Willard, "that Congress adjourned for a month, and among the names of senators I came across the name Fulton. I thought at first that it might be 'Tulip,' he always was a good talker." "Yes," answered Russell, "that's 'Steamboatf After serv- ing as Representative for four years, he was elected aSenator from Massachusetts." "Our old friend Sheldon," chimed in McKenna, "is now custodian of the large new 'Tech' and has certainly got a snap. Finch is head of the Wood Working Department in the same school as Sheldon." "Who's doing the talking? " inquired 'Al.' "You both seem so anxious to tell what you know that I don't know as I can hear what you say. You first, Russell, tell me of those you have heard of and 'Mc,' you can have the floor next. This is not a German class, remember, and Miss Mussaeus is not present, so you don't all have to talk at once." "Margie Wickward is now taking the leading part in 'The Girl of My Dreamsf Her experience in 'Dandy Dick' came in very handy, as it started her on the road to success. "Lloyd Cogswell is a machinist, but he still keeps an eye open for inventions. He always waska great boy for that kind of work. "I don't know as you recollect Hamiltong he never sat in Room 21 with us. He spent his time surveying the land sur- rounding Springfield, such as Feeding Hills, Agawam, and Indian Orchard, and he is now capable of tackling any surveying job. "'Ernie' Smith is coach of the B. A. A. basketball team, and his proteges have been champions for two successive years. "'Hobie' johnson, our football, basketball, and-oh, what's the use of naming them, but you know, the all-round star! He has been running on the Olympic team, and playing with the All-American football team, and is still showing up well. "'Dick' Birchard is a minister, and quite well off, probably from marrying so many of the old class, they have made it a point to patronize him as much as possible. "Nelson is a noted farmer of Stony Hill, having stuck by THE 1913 ORICLE 57 his resolution to marry a cornfed girl, and is prosperous in every sense of the word. But, 'Mc,' I think I'll let you talk for a while as that's about all I know." "Caldwell," started off McKenna, "is captain of the next Olympic rifle team, after having won the world's champion- ship, making 999 out of a possible l,O00. "'Art' Gendron coached Yale's winning crew last year, and bids fair to be foremost American oarsman. "'Gus' Gustafson is now skating for a living, and is our Eastern Whirlwind Ice Skater. " 'Dan B.' Demond is up in the hills at North Adams. I don't know just what he is doing, but it's something about farming or forestry. "'Red' Cartmill is traveling in Europe, and because of the somber hue of his hair he is known as the 'Rose Domed American' "Ray Burt is still a gentleman of leisure, and it was only yesterday that I heard him tell of another capture he had made, but as he has failed so often, I don't think Ray will ever marry. "'Dr.' Norton is, or was when last I heard from him, the head of the Illinois State Hospital for the Insane. 'Ed.' Moore is following his father's footsteps but not on foot, as he has the latest French car in which he rides around to houses for sale, not by P. B. Moore, but by Col. Ed. P. Moore. "Merchant still wears loud colors, as he is a boss-painter. One wonders he is not sick of colors, but apparently the habit acquired at 'Tech ' cannot be broken." "While in San Francisco last week," broke in Willard, "I went to the Colonial Theatre, and whom should I see on the bill as headliners, but VVardell and Donnellan, in 'Bits of Magicf Donnellan does the talking for the team, and Wardell the tricks." "Say, I thought you wanted us to tell you about our bunch, and now you're doing the talking." "Well, haven't I a perfect right?" responded HAI." "I'll tell what I know, and you can make corrections or additions afterward, That sounds like Miss de Angelis giving orders, doesn't it? "It is years since I saw Todd, but when I did run across him, he was a surveyor of great ability. 'ATingley, the fellow who was always manufacturing some- thing or other in the machine shop, is head of the American 58 THE 1915 ORIOLE Machine Tool Company. Backus is now a chemist of great renown." "That's enough, 'Alf let me say a ,word or two, will you?" burst forth McKenna. "All right, speed ahead," was the response. "Britton, that shapely youth of old, is now working in a Hartford fifty-cent store as floor walker, and has fine oppor- tunities for showing off his figure, as he promenades up and down the aisles. "Hazen is conducting parties to Washington from all parts of the world, his experience gained at LTech' served him to a good purpose, as he makes money hand over fist. Earl Cross was in Washington, Hazen said. "Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, I met Bert Johnson day before yesterday, and he is now traveling salesman for the Snell and Simpson Cracker Co., the firm lRed' Chapman used to work for. He is having great success, owing to his former experience of selling goods over the lunch counter at 'Techf He has seen quite a number of our crowd in one city or another. "He said that 'Fat' Richards was now leading a Minstrel Company. I don't know whether it's the best one or not, but what 'Fat' runs is good. Paul O'Neil is a model for Stein Bloch, and wears the clothes to perfection, so Bert informed me. "He saw Leslie Allen in Hartford one day, but did not have time to stop and speak to him. While passing the Common in Boston last week, he was thunderstruck to see Mary Bailey leading a suffragette parade, and making as much noise as any fiveof her compatriots put together. U Kate Avery, so he said, is a hairdresser in Philadelphia, you know she always did know how to twist her hair into some kind of untangleable knots. Molly Bowne has at last reached the height of her ambition, and is teacher of Mexican History at the Carlisle Indian School. Anna Williams, the girl who chummed around with 'Mil' Gibbons, is still single, and has become a very proficient dressmaker, living in Milwaukee. Madeline Delabarre is touring the United States. "Those are the only ones of the class Bert has run across. No, there's 'Mad' Manning, let's see, I believe he said she was teaching, I don't remember what, in Denver." , "Are you fellows ready?" interrupted Russell. "If so, I'll spring a surprise. Let's go to the Municipal Building to-night, THE 1915 ORIOLE 59 and hear the concert. I understand it is to be splendid. By the way, 'Al,' did 'Mc' or I tell you that three of our old class are now musicians of note? Earl Karcher is the leader of the Municipal Orchestra, Maude Streeter plays the piano, and Ruth Reed the violin." "All right, Russell, if 'Mc' will go." "Sure thing, 'Al,"' answered McKenna. "Then let's adjourn until this evening, but first gather around-now, let her go!" " Bumga-chic-a-bum Bum-a-chic-a-bum Bum-a-chic-a-ric-a-chic-a Bum-Bum-Bum , VVa-hu-wa VVa-hu-wa 1913 Rah! Rah!

QWZ AV7 'WL' THE 1915 CRIOLE In 1923 Prophecy on the Prophets-Class of 1913 All in the merry month of May When flowers do bloom and lambs do play, I strolled into a Western town, A busy place of great renown. I traced my way unto the inn And there was such uproarious din, I said unto my landlord gay, 'fPray, sir, is this a festal day?" The landlord slowly shook his head And then to me he sternly said, Before this night this town will see A vision of prosperity. ll The wonderful Prairie Queen will comeg And say, that gal is going some! And right before this inn will she Now hypnotize both you and me." But all day long I watched the road, I scanned each automobile loadg . But never one sign did I see Of that vision of prosperity. Until at last the bands did play The Queen is coming forth to-day." Then suddenly forth on a charger boldm Rode the Queen, who in each hand did-hold il THE 1913 ORIOLE A Smith and Wesson up-to-date. She shot the windows and plugged the gates, And then stood erect in her saddle high And shot seven times into the sky. She performed strange miracles standing there Turned daring hand springs in the air, Put six shots through the marshal's hat .Iuggled with nine baseball bats. Then with one last, loud, wild "Hallo!" She turned her horse and away did go, And that is the sad and awful fate That befell our gentle and timid mate. She became the worst bandit of the day- Feared by all was Mildred Lay. Finally I journeyed on Far from this wild and woolly town, Until one bright and sunny morn On Swedish lands I saw the dawn. Young men were there from every landg I saw Americans on every hand. Fine straight young men from every state Eager to hasten on the date When every land should strive to see Which would gain supremacy. I asked if old HTech" had any one To take the plums and share the fun. They only laughed and said, 'fYou wait! Be sure you're early at the gate." Now I was there the earliest one Before the rising of the sun. THE 1915 ORIOLE I saw each jump and every race, i But nothing seemed to suit the case, Until the announcer loudly cried, "We have a man from the other side Who'll do an exhibition race At a wonderful unequaled pace." The man came forth, the crowd did cheer Such shouts and cries you ne'er did hear. He stood and bowed most modestly, He was so used to cheers, you see, But all around me could I hear The welcoming cries to the hero dear. "Pritzlaff of the curly hair, Pritzlaff of the baby stare, He's our hero and our pride We've nothing like him on this side. " He's the man who wins the race For all the world he sets the pace, Pritzlaff, to you all homage due Pritzlaff, just let us worship you.' 1 And then at last I journeyed here To tell these tales to classmates dear. THE 1915 omousz Class Poem Once more does Time, with his relentless hand, Swing past the years, uncrowned as yet by Life, But filled with tests and triumphs for each one, And peopled with bright visions by the way,- Visions of Life, inspired by rosy Hope, Of one, who, in her mercy and good-will, Hides her stern face behind a flowered veil, Until such time as we, prepared and Ht, Unveil her for ourselves, and stagger not At what she holds for us within her hand. In preparation for such time, we've spent Four years of study, toil, and earnest care. Experience, our counselor has been, And yet, unyielding though her discipline, Her subjects better fitted are to stand Alone, to face the fiercest tempest rage. Ideals of purity, standards of strength,- With eager hands she stands to lavish them On every willing pupil of her school, And thus equipped, we stand before the gate, The key of which the shining Future holds. Till now we've only peered around and through, But sight is dimmed, for o'er this land of mist No eye can see. But look! the kindly Future smiles And, stepping forth, her fair white hand she lifts And throws the latch, and turning speaks to us. "Oh, valiant youths and maidens fair," she cries, HThy childhood years have swiftly passed awayg And now the dawn of youth gives place to noon, And thou art ready, in thine untried strength To nobly bear thy part in honest strife. THE 1913 ORIOLE But hark, the paths of Manhood yet untrod, Though oft they lead to fair renown and fame, Are sometimes lowly and beset with grief. On toilsome sand, on rounding mountain top, Life flung the course o'er which your feet must pass. But know you this, thou goest not alone, Thy friend and teacher, wise Experience, Who guided thee through youth, will guide thee still. Obey her austere mandates, and thy way, Though rough and hard, shall lead thee to thine own.' She ceased, and we gazed silently before, And slowly, like a smile born of a frown, The mists gave way. Behold, Utopia! Her stately beauty flashes back the light Thrown on her golden spires by the sun. Oh, Comrades, shall we climb the mountain wall That guards that virgin city on the height? Shall we, like conquerors of old, ascend Her scaly sides, and, leaping on her crest, Implant aloft our colors for the world To see and know? It calls for valiant hearts, For even though the goal be half attained, 'Tis only those prevail who reach the top. Then, Comrades, steel your hearts and fix your minds Nor enter, save wholehearted, in the fight, Remember this, if Truth you seek, be True, For Truth to her disciples draweth near. Then with her standard moving on before, In her name conquer, till before the world, Victorious, you fling her banners wide, And men shall yield themselves unto her sway.

DEAR JACK: I suppose you know I have entered high school. I like it very much. The Hrst day we all went into the assembly hall. Then we were assigned to our rooms. I went to room 12, you know, and some of the boys went to 14, but most of the girls went to Miss Sawyer's room. My! but that algebra is awful hard. I never saw so much study. I have to work all day and all night on it. Gee! but I like woodworking though, and I get all my joints good and tight. I have found a new way to make good tight joints. just fill them with glue. The girls are having what they call household arts. They also have design. There were over a hundred of us entered. I certainly hate English. There is no need of it anyhow. When are you coming up to see me? Anyway, I wish you would write more often. I will be sure to answer. Your cousin, J. JAMES KIMEER. SPRINGFIELD, MAss., March 8, 1911. DEAR JACK: I am very glad to hear you got home so quickly that stormy night. We are going full blast again, and I am now an ad- vanced sophomore. It seems line to be able to look way down at those lower elassmen. I sit upstairs now in room 253 we have been scattered a little because some of the fellows have Hunked. The girls are sitting in room 26, just opposite us. We have had a half year of pattern making and are now taking forging. Say! but isn't it hot down there? We certainly know how to weld iron. There is a fellow here we call the "Giant" or "Husky" Sturtevant. He is the greatest "smith" in the class. He weighs 84M pounds and uses about a 12-pound hammer. THE 1913 ORIOLE 73 The girls are now having household science, learning to keep a house great, I suppose. Our assemblies seem better to me every week. I am thinking of electing chemistry next year but have not yet fully decided. The other day, I tried to count the fellows and girls who entered when I did and I found that the number was a great deal less than when we started. Things will look pretty bad for us if it goes on like that much longer. Mr. Goodrich, our science teacher, tells us that "There is always room at the top" and I guess he is right. Anyway, I am going to try to graduate and the rest of the fellows seem to be quieting down a little. Your cousin, J. JAMES KIMBER. P. S.-You should have seen us beat Chicopee High last week, 42-20. SPRINGFIELD, MAss., February 10, 1913. DEAR CoUs1N JACK! I am very glad that you will be able to come to Springfield for a week. There will be plenty to occupy our time. Iwant, very much, to have you go with me to the Boys' Exposition, for I know you will be greatly interested. You said you wanted to know how I was getting along. Well, there is plenty to take up my time. I am taking chemistry now and some of the fellows have elected mechanical subjects. Your old friend Fentongave a speech on "Bricks" the other day, and the fellows have nicknamed him "Bricks" At present, there are less than twenty in our class, and we have organized with the following officers: President Smith, Vice-President Poole, Secretary Kimber, and Treasurer Haw- kins. We are now getting ready for a track meet with the 1912M class. We expect to lose, but nevertheless will make them earn the victory. Our class day we shall give the seniors a little social in the gym, there will of course be dancing and refreshments, and Mr. Haynes, the class' prestidigitator, will show us some of his marvelous feats. Examinations 'for the half year will soon be in order, so you see that I have got to keep pretty busy. I hope to see you in a week or so. Yours, J. JAMES KIMBER. 74 THE 1915 ORIOTLE SPRINGFIELD, MAss., April 10, 1913. CoUs1N JACK: It seems that I have delayed the writing of this letter too long, but I know that you will excuse a fellow that is so busy. I am pleased to hear that you are taking a liking to your work and I have no doubt that you will be able to take a few days' leave of absence at graduation. Our high school days are nearly gone and I can hardly account for the past four years. The graduating class will be quite large, because a few of the "conditioned" students will be ready to graduate at the same time we do. Things have been doing this year. We have had a new election Ol-Ol:1C1CC1'SNVl'El1 the results:-President Poole, you re- member him, Vice-President Smithg Treasurer Fenton, and the Secretary was reelected. Our class and the Junior class together held a dance last Friday. It was a dandy, too. Do you remember what I told you once about Mr. Goodrich and 'lPlenty of room at the top"? This certainly proved true. At the opening of the midyear session, there were so many fresh- men that '13Z had to go to the top. We went to room 38 upon the roof. On the reports that came out the other day, room 38 had the highest percentage of "BU cards. VVe are all near the top of the ladder we started to climb four years ago. Some of the fellows will go to college, while the rest of us will do our best to apply all we have learned in T. H. S. Now, jack, I don't want you to disappoint me at graduation. You must be "on deck." I will write you in about a week re- garding the arrangements and in the meantime shall be steadily at work preparing for the final exams. Your cousin, J. J. K. THE 1915 oR1oLE 75 19135 Glass Prophecy I It was in 1918 on a bright spring morning that I decided to take a spin to Springfield where I had spent my school days. After reaching the city, I drove past old "Tech," then down Main St. just as I turned on to Harrison Ave., what should greet my eyes but a large building, over which was a sign, "Poole's Garage, Autosito Let, Taxis a Specialty." I stopped my car, jumped out, and entered the garage. Yes! there was the same old George sitting at the desk writing. "Hello, old boy," I cried, 'lhow are you?" "What!" he exclaimed, jumping up, "you in town! I was just thinking of old 'Tech' and the bunch. Sit down and let's talk things over." "Well, George," I said, 'lwho'd have thought that you would go into the auto business? I thought you had decided to be an undertaken" "I know it," he answered, "but you see I found that it was cheaper to go into the business and have a taxi always on hand, than have to hire one every stormy night." "Guess you were wise there," I replied. "Say, have you heard from the 'BM crowd lately?" 'lYes," he said, "I've a couple of the fellows working for me. Bruce, you remember VValter Bruce, don't you? Well, he's working as a taxi driver for me now, and then there's Cross, the fellow from Huntington, he's my head mechanic." "By the way, I just came through Monson, but I didn't see anything of Kimber. I-Iave you heard from him?" 'lSure,l' he said, 'f'Sharko' has gone into the egg business for fair. He's got between two and three dozen hens. You remember how he used to bring in eggs our last year at 'Tech '? Well, he comes in twice a week now and supplies the faculty at 'Tech,' Central, and Commerce." "Oh, say!" I broke in, HI saw Potter the other day. You see, I went into the Myrick Building last week and saw on one of the office doors 'Adrian Leon Potter, jr., Art Editorf Guess how I found him. Sitting at a desk with a huge wastebasket on each side of him, both full! He's now art editor of 'Good I-Iousekeepingf " 76 THE 1915 ORIOLE "Then there's Doris Merry, have you heard from her?" 'A' Why, yes, she runs a swell millinery shop down over Clinton Hall, next to where I used to hang out, don't you remember? 'Dot' always was strong on bonnet making." "Have you seen Pirnie around anywhere? Wonder where I can fmd him?" "At the clubrooms any time of day or night," George answered. "He's always there, trying to find some one to talk to." "What's Haynes doing for a living?" "'Chet' Haynes? Oh, he is giving evening entertainments with sleight of hand tricks. Making good I hear. And say, what do you suppose Lombard is doing?" "I don't know, I'm sure." "Well, he's leading a Shakespearean company, with Fenton as his second man. They say he's doing finely. Ihaven't seen him perform yet, but hope to soon." "That reminds me, as we came through a strip of rough country the other side of Palmer, I saw a fellow with a basket poking around in the dirt with a stick. And say, I could have sworn it was old 'Professor' Sherman." George laughed. "Guess it was, all right. You know Ralph has quite a museum and is always out hunting for Indian relics. He was probably looking for 'Hint' arrowheadsf' "Speaking of flint, have you heard from 'Lizzie' Flint?" "Yes, yes, to be sure we mustn't forget 'Lizzief They tell me she is making quite a .success at music and German. She is teaching in the West somewhere." "Say, I must tell you, I was reading in the paper the other day that Mark Belding is making a tour of the country making stump speeches, guaranteed not to exceed five minutes, the subject being 'The Building of Tunnelsf " "I want to know," I said. "By the way, I see that the Hotel Kimball has been some enlarged since I was here last." "Yes, but it's the Hotel Nagler now. I guess Frank finds it quite a good investment." "I hear Barr is cashier in a bank now. You know he al- ways did like to handle money, even if it was only lunch checks, and now he handles the real stuff. Well, be good. Run in and see me if you ever happen down Boston way. So long." THE 1915 ORIOLE 77 In 1930 Prophecy on Prophets-Class of 1913! It was eight o'clock on the evening of March third, nineteen thirty, when a happy group of men met in the lobby of the Hotel 'Waldorf-Astoria, New York, in preparation to witness the inaug- uration of the President the following day. They met as a result of a far-reaching search, for at least a few members of the class of '13M,byJ. Kimber, the renowned hat manufacturer of the city of Monson, Mass. Kimber, " the man that made Monson famous," as we used to call him when in "Tech " had done his best, and, as a result, five lone members were located. Imagine my surprise when I was requested to leave my New York O1Cf:lC6, in the midst of a large VVestern land deal, to shake the hands of my colleagues: namely, Mr. Frank Nagler, the Socialist mayor of my home town, Ralph Sherman, a prominent business man of Hartford, Conn., Maurice Penton, a member of Springf1eld's new Riverfront Commission, and George Poole, the well-known undertaker. It was indeed an enjoyable meeting as it was the first time that we had been together since the old days at "Tech," At nine o'clock we left New York and were on our way to see the unusual inauguration of Theodore Roosevelt, still running as leader of the Progressive Party since 1912. While speeding towards Washington we talked of many subjects, from incidents at "Tech " to a rather heated discussion of the incoming Secretary of State. Much had been heralded throughout the country of this man, Smith. It was said that he was well fitted for the high office, although a somewhat young man, he had served in a similar inferior position under the pre- ceding president. Little did we know that this great man too was a member of the class of 'l3M. 78 THE 1915 ORIOLE The discussion was cut short, however, for we soon finished our journey and arrived in Washington, tired, but with great anticipations of obtaining a glimpse of the distinguished guests and prominent officials of the day. After "dining" we emerged upon the heavily thronged streets of our national capital and proceeded to the capitol building itself. It was about eleven o'clock when our small gathering reached its destination and here we were obliged to take the best position possible as thousands of others were already doing. Mr. Kimber suggested that we take our stand at the head of Pennsylvania Ave., and we awaited the arrival of the procession bearing the President and Vice-President and the prominent officials. The line of march was scheduled to pass the reviewing stand at twelve o'clock sharp, but it was about one o'clock before we were certain that the procession was coming down the broad avenue. The restlessness of the people and the distant shouting told us that the President had just passed that point. It didn't take long -for those leading to reach us and following hundreds of soldiers, the carriages holding our country's representatives drew near and, amid the clapping of thousands of hands, the President passed us. V But who was that young man seated in the second carriage and the well-dressed lady beside him? "Durned if it ain't the new Sec'tr'y of State," exclaimed a country lad beside us. A secondlater Mr. Fenton shouted "Hurrah for Everett and Hazel!" andwe joined in with a great outburst of applause. Hardly believing our eyes we made our way toward the Wliite House, where a public reception was to be held, in order to be the first to shake the hands' of our former classmates. It was indeed true, this Secretary of State was Everett Smith and his woman companion was Mrs. Douglas Crane, nee Hazel Slater, the first woman senator from Massachusetts. To think that two mem- bers of our class had obtained such an honorable place in our country's work was certainly wonderful. Soon they completed the tiresome work of handshaking and we invited them to take a quiet walk in the park. After talking of the old days at HTech" we bade them good-bye and at six o'clock left for New York, well pleased to have learned of the success of our former classmates. .BOND R u 9 1 THE 1915 ORIOLE 81 Cl-ass of 1914 OFFICERS President ....,... ,...,........... .

These officers were in office but a few months, however, and a regular election was held in February. Although a mid-year class, the class of 'MM has been most active socially. Two socials have been held, one restricted to the members of the class, and at the other a small admission was charged and a limited number of tickets issued to members of the school.

The results of the work of this committee were submitted to the class at a special meeting, and were accepted. The next step was to elect a nominating committee Whose duty was to consider those eligible for office, and to nominate three persons for each office. The members of this committee prepared a ballot con- taining the names of the candidates for office. This list was sent to each member of the faculty for approval, and was then pre- sented to the class for a similar purpose. The election was carried on by the Australian ballot system, two tellers being present to check the name of the voter as he accepted his ballot, and as he cast his Vote. Out of a possible membership of one hundred and thirteen, ninety-five pupils signed the Constitution.

His mind is pure, Not immature, And full of new ideas. He's firmly built and straight as any tree, Yet yielding as a willowy reed To wind that's passing free. His head is high, Close-mouthed, not shy, And proud as one could see. Deep-set his eyes and of a greenish-gray As is the cold salt sea, When viewed from far away, Those eyes are keen, And might have been The watch-lights on the bay. But oh, his soul! What untold depths there are What rare emotions stir him far Beneath the calm Of his own charm And mold him like a star. -M. L. B. THE 1915 ORIOLE To Miss Stanley A vacant place is here to-day, Yet lingers still a memory ever bright, A cheery voice, an energetic way, Keen, clear blue eyes filled with a kindly light. A strong full face, a smiling mouth, a mask Which hid the pain, how clearly we recall Those firm, white hands, which in their hearty clasp Bespoke the friendly feeling felt for all. A gallant soul has left our busy throng, A mighty force is taken from our lives, As in a lovely interrupted song The sounding string is cut, the sweetness flies. Oft at our work, she's in our inner sight just standing by with twinkling eyes of fun. Waiting with curving lips and manner bright To give us that beloved voiced "well done." A -M. L.

E'en now, my boy, I can't believe itls true We've lost so great a leader. But since 'tis so We must from memory copy that strong soul That fought and made its weaker housing do What we, with selfish hearts, prefer, you know, To dream about, than look towards, as our goal.

In contemplation long I stand there pondering On the deep mysteries of heaven and earth, On the ways of life that set men wondering, And the mighty hand that gave them birth.

S., waz. 92 THE 1913 oR1o1.E John Eaton-Stroke BY RODERICIC PIRNIE, 1913! john Eaton was a young lad of about seventeen, in his first year at the Ralston preparatory school. He was tall, thin, and straight as a poplar tree, bearing his shoulders squarely and his chin high. He knew no one in the school and had entered it because in the town where he had lived there was no high school. His father was a graduate of Harvard and had rowed on the crew there. He was a great enthusiast over the sport, and wished more to have his son stroke the crew than to be a Phi Beta Kappa man. Now, Ralston had a crew and a fine coach. Possibly this influenced the father in selecting the school. At any rate John was a freshman, and unknown to any one in the school. He had a room to himself as the fellow who was to have roomed with him had decided, at the last minute, to go elsewhere. The first week of recitations began, and he started upon his school year. He was lonesome, fellows talked in groups about the campus, but he did not fit in, and no one paid any attention to him. He longed for companions and yet did not know how to make them. He was homesick and weak at heart, and yet he felt he must 'fstick it out." One day, while he was wondering what was going on at home, and if his dad was missing him a great deal, he heard a knock on his door, and to his hearty call of "Come in," a small lad of twelve or thirteen entered. "Come in and sit down, won't you?" said john, cordially. "Thanks," said the lad, "I just dropped in because I knew that you were alone and might be willing to talk to me a little while. You see I'm all alone here, too, and Gee! but this sure is a lonesome place." H I'm mighty glad you did come inf' said John, "but tell me, how did you happen to come to this school?" 'fOh, you see my father and mother are both dead and I have been living with my aunt, but she has three children of her own to look after so she sent me up here," he replied. "My name is Fred Bassett." THE 1913 ORIOLE 93 The two boys talked for a long time, becoming very good friends. At the ringing of the school bell announcing the call for supper, they went to the dining room and sat down at atable with several other boys who paid little or no attention to theni. When supper was over they parted, Fred going to his room to study and john to his mail box to find a letter in the familiar hand of his father. In this letter his father strongly urged him to drop his reserve and go out of his way to meet the men of the school, and try to mingle with them in all of their activities. This advice John resolved to follow. The following day he noticed the call for crew candidates on the bulletin board, and felt still happier. When classes were over, he got his companion of the night before and went down to the boathouse, for he had told the youngster about his father's letter and had persuaded him to try out for coxswain. John was placed at number two in the third boat. After practice, the coach called him and said, " Eaton, where have you ever rowed before?" " In a double with my father," replied the lad. "Well, take number four in the seconds to-morrow. Good afternoon." John went home to his room that night, and wrote a letter to his father telling of his first success and then turned in for bed. He held this position for three or four weeks until one day, upon arriving at the boathouse, he saw the captain and coach talking earnestly together. When they saw him, the captain called him over to them. "Eaton," he said, "Lansing is sick to-day, and we want you to try the stroke seat in your boat this afternoon. You will have to race the firsts. Do you think you can do it?" "Yes, sir," replied John. "All right," said the coach, "keep your eye on the first crew as long as you can and don't let them pass you." HI'll do the best I can," replied John, and started for the dressing room. "Just a minute," said the captain, "do you think you can beat us?" A' If the seconds row as well as they have for the past week, I don't see why not," said John. "All right," said the captain, 'II wish you would." john hurried to the dressing room, got into his rowing suit, 94 THE 1915 ORIOLE and went down to the boat room to find the rest of the crew waiting for him. Previous to that time, the Firsts had always won in these brushes, but to-day the tables were turned and the seconds won by a quarter of a length. The coach and captain were so well pleased that john stayed at stroke of the seconds, even after Lansing returned. ' Q He stayed in this seat about a month, and every day the seconds won from the firsts. This made the coach see that something was radically wrong in his first boat and he called the captain to him and said: "You know, Blain, I have decided that the stroke in your boat can't 'hit it up' fast enough to beat Eaton. He always loses on the last ten lengths of the race." "Yes," said Blain, "he does seem a little weak there, but what are you going to do? Johnson has stroked this boat two years and you can't really put him out.'l "Well, in two years we haven't beaten Pendleton and this year I intend to. If Johnson can't do it, Eaton will," said the coach, earnestly. HI propose to try Eaton in that seat to-day and put Johnson back into the seconds. Then, if the seconds win, we will at least know that it isn't the stroke that's wrong." So john was moved into the first boat. It was the last week of the fall practice, and on Friday the race between the three crews came off. It was a beautiful day with line rowing con- ditions, and the race was a good one. But the first came out a winner over the other two crews by over a length of open water, and the coach then saw that his new discovery was far from wrong. Of course, all this could not go on without the entire school knowing about it, and, instead of the lonesome lad that we found at the opening of school, we iind a well-known and pleasant fellow whom every one is glad to meet. Do not think, however, that john in all his success, has for- gotten Fred Bassett. Fred worked hard as coxswain and got as far as cox of the second crew, but the first crew cox had held that seat last year and was considered the best in the school, and so here Fred must be satisfied until the following year when this cox would have graduated. The winter passed by and spring came with all its budding glory, the ice went out in the river and crew practice began. The school had two big races each season, one with Brockton, THE 1915 ORIOLE 95 and the other with its big rival in every sport, Pendleton. The line-up of the first crew did not change and all the time before the first race was spent in training the men to row together, and to make speed. When the first crew was finally in shape, it was pronounced the best the school had ever turned out. It averaged one hundred and fifty-eight pounds to the man, and five feet eleven inches in height. Every man was the picture of health and could be trusted to row a race to the finish. With all prospects for a fine season ahead of them, the crew set out one morning' in May to race Brockton in its first race of the season. The entire school turned out in a body to see the crew off. Every one was in the greatest of spirits and confident of victory. The crew arrived at Brockton about noon, had dinner and went out for a practice spin on the lake there in the afternoon, retiring early, for a good night's sleep. The next afternoon a heavy wind was stirring the lake into a rough body of water, and the Ralston crew had difficulty in handling their oars, but were, nevertheless, at the starting line on time. When the gun went off, Ralston jumped to the lead, and it looked as if they would win easily. But Brockton pulled close behind and stayed there until halfway through the race, when she pulled ahead of Ralston and took a lead of about three quarters of a length. At the mile and a quarter mark the posi- tions were unchanged, and John said to his coxswain, "Now, Bill, start a sprint!" This the cox refused to do and when John raised his stroke there was no response. " Come on and sprint," said John again, but the cox only replied, "Not yet," and kept his course. When the cox finally did call for the sprint, it was too late and the racewas Brockton's byone eighth of a length. Not a man in the Ralston boat was as tired as he should have been, and every one was disgusted with the result. When the boats landed, the coach came up to john and said, "Why in thunder didn't you start your sprint sooner? You could have beaten that crew easily." "Yes, I know," said john, "and I started to sprint, but that confounded cox wouldn't back me up and so the fellows didn't respond. You can blame me all you please, but either that cox or I go back into the second boat, for I'll never stroke another race while he's steering, he knows too much." f'Well, he's the best we've got, isn't he?" asked the coach. 96 THE 1915 ORIOLE " No! not by a long shot. just try Fred Bassett, when we get home, and see how the boat goes," responded John. "All right, I'1l try him but I don't think it willworkg he is too young," the coach said thoughtfully, "but we'll see." The entire crew knew that the loss of the race was the cox's fault, and so when practice was resumed were glad to see Fred moved up into the first boat. After this everything ran smoothly in practice, and the coach had no fault to Hnd. Rapidly the time sped by, until the week preceding the big race with Pendleton was at hand. Only very light practice was taken during the last three days of the week, as the crew must be in its best condition for the race on Saturday. At last, the fateful day arrived and the morning broke clear and cool upon the restless town of Ralston. At crew head- quarters, the fellows had breakfast and then were kept in their rooms until about ten thirty, when they all took a short walk. After dinner, they sat around trying to read newspapers and while away the next two or three hours before the race. Finally the coach came in and said, 'A Everybody ready to go to the boat- house." This was the word for which they had waited,for cen- turies it seemed, and they all jumped to their feet and followed him. At the boathouse just before they went down to their boat, the coach gathered them around him and said, "Now,boys, you are starting out to do the thing for which you have been training for four months, and every man is in perfect physical condition and is expected to do his share. You are going to win, but I want it thoroughly understood that if you lose I don't want to see you able to row back to this house at a '42.' Every man must put all he has into this race. Row every stroke as if it were your last, and when you get tired row harder, but keep with your stroke. Now go out and lick Pendleton, for the glory of old Ralston!" The boys went to the boat room and started out with their shell. When they shoved off from the float, they were greeted with cheer upon cheer from the fellows on the bank. "Attention eight," called the little cox. 'lReady allg cast away! Hip-away! Hip-away!" The eight bodies swung for- ward and back like one man and the boat sped toward the starting line. THE 1915 ORIOLE 97 A little later the Pendleton boat started out and when they rowed up to the starting place it could be easily seen that Ralston was to have the hardest race it had ever rowed on this course. The crews met and turned around to line up. 'When both crews were ready, the starter stood up in his launch and cried, " Pendle- ton, are you ready?" The cox of that boat nodded his head. "Ralston, are you ready?" "Yes," called Fred. "Gentlemen, are you ready?" Bang!! The boats shot away from the line like projectiles from a twelve-inch gun, each crew catching the water at the same instant. After the sprint at the start, the crews settled down to the hard grind of a mile and a half before them. Pendleton had about a quarter of a length lead which Ralston did not try to make up. John kept his eye on the strength of the Pendleton boat much as a hawk watches its prey from a high cliff, awaiting the proper time to swoop down upon it. VVhen half of the race had passed, the positions were unchanged and both crews were beginning to show the strain, but John spoke to his coxswain, who immediately called for "ten hard ones." This little spurt made up one eighth of a length and brought john even with the cox of the Pendleton boat. Here the boat seemed to stick and at the mile and three-eighths mark john said, through his clinched teeth, "Sprint to the Hnish, kid," and put the stroke up to forty-two. Pendleton tried to sprint,but was unable to hold it, and inch by inch the Ralston boat crept up until it was a half length ahead. Little Fred Bassett was calling, "hard ones," at the top of his voice, and the crowd was cheering loudly. Iohn's head began to swim, but he pulled all the harder, finally trusting to the cox's Height! nine! ten! hard ones!" for his stroke. At last the Ralston boat shot across the finish line, three quarters of a length in the lead, to the booming of cannon and shouting of happy Ralston rooters. The next that jack knew he was looking into the beaming face of his father, who was leaning over the side of the launch, waiting Hto pick the boys up and take them back to the boat- housef' "john, my boy," the father said, "I knewyou could do it! You are an honor to the old man who taught you to row." 98 THE 1915 ORIOLE Friday Morning Exercises The committee in charge of the Friday Morning Exercises this year is as follows 2-- General Chairman.

Much credit is due to Drillmaster A. E. Metzdorfand his assistants, Miss Hill, Miss Bickley, William Howard, and Wilbur Batchelder. The chairmen of the various committees were: Manager, H. D. Richardsg tickets, D. B. Demondg side-show, Albert Willardg property man, E. P. Moore, decorator, H. Tingleyg costumes, H. Marsh, advertising, Everett Smith, candy, Madeline Delabarreg music, Ray Burt, elec- trician, George A. Bicknell, assisted by D. McClench. Each and every one of the performers deserves commendation for thewhole- hearted manner in which they entered the fun. The side-show was well worth the money, and the fudge sold by the candy girls was up to the usual high standard. The circus proved in many ways one of the bestof its kind ever given by the high school. The Presidential Election On election day, under the management of the Forum, the students of the Technical High School helped to elect the President of the United States. President Taft was triumphantly re-elected by the three high schools working in harmony, the electoral vote being :- 1 Taft ,.,..... ..,,. 4 75 Wilson ...... . .....,. . . . 315 Roosevelt ................................ Zi However, in the popular vote the Democratic candidate re- ceived 618 votes, Taft was given 608, and the Bull Moose finished third with 452. The result came as a surprise, for the victors had been con- sidered the weakest. The leaders of the Progressive party had conducted such an enterprising campaign and had made so much noise doing it, that their strength was over-estimated. The scheme also uncovered a number of politicians, who may, in the future, be shouting for themselves. OCI 102 THE 1915 ORIOLE Sooials JUNIOR CLASS SOCIAL. NOVEMBER 2, 1912.

SENIOR "PROM," The last big social event of the Senior class, the june " Prom, " is to be held on Monday evening, June twenty-third. It is the desire of the class to make the 1913 A'Prom" the best ever. With this airrr in view, the committee has engaged the new Auditorium, the best hall in the city. In previous years the l'Tech" classes have had their "Proms" in halls which were not large enough. This will not be true this year, and the committee is working hard to make this last event a great success from all points of view. All tickets will be given away by the members of the class. The .balcony of the Auditorium affords room for those who may wish to watch the dancing. The committee is to take special precaution to make this " Prom" respectable and honorable to the class of 1913. COMMITTEE. MR. ALBERT WILLARD, Chairman. MR. EDWARD MOORE, MISS MARY BAILEY, MR.

Cl:UBS THE 1913 ORIOLE 109 The Dramatic Society The Dramatic Society has lived up to the record it set last year, in its one production of this year, "Dandy Dick." As a result of this play, the ORIOLE received a good foundation for a successful financial year. Although no other play has been given by the club, meetings have been held regularly. A new interior scene was purchased for the production of "Dandy Dick," and at the ORIOLE Matinee another interior was made and paid for by the Dramatic Club. To add to this work for the school, the society has presented twenty-five dollars to the Kate Stanley Memorial Fund. This society has become one of our strongest and most valuable organizations. Although school plays need not be under its auspices, there is no reason why "Tech" dramatics should not center around the Dramatic Society. OFFICERS.

Twenty-nine members have already won their 1913 Junior Marksman buttons and moie are expected to compete before the end of the year. Seven members won their Outdoor junior Marksman medals for 1912 on the Schuetzen 200-yard range in October. December 18, 1912, the team went to Amherst for a match with the Massachusetts Agricultural College second team. The local team met with defeat, the score being 915 to 874. This was a very respectable showing as the opponents are considered a strong team. Between January 11 and March 8 the team participated in a series of nine weekly matches for the schoolboy championship of the United States. "Tech" captured seventh place among the twenty teams entered. Following are the scores of the matches:- Business High School of Washington ...... 776 T. R.

Bliss, a former member of the club and now an in- structor in the McDonough School in Maryland, has presented two cups to be competed for by members of the club. One cup is to be put up this year and one next year. The match will be known as the Bliss Trophy Handicap Match. The handicaps will be placed in the hands of Mr. Axtelle, a local revolver and rifle expert, and will not be known until the end of the match, which lasts four weeks. The Rifle Club has become well known throughout the city. The benefits from the partici- pation in such a sport are far-reaching. It develops steady nerves, teaches the fellows the value of good living and early hours, as nothing requires stricter training than rilie shooting. The Rifle Club is a valuable asset to " Tech's " activities. 112 THE 1913 ORIOLE Modern Language Clubs "Tech " supports two very successful modern language clubs. The present German Club, Der Deutsche Verein, is in its second year. Due to the zealous work of the faculty members and the officers of the club, interest has never lagged. Regular meetings have been held at the homes of the various members. The usual procedure is the reading of the secretary's report and any business that may properly come before the meeting. The only language allowed is German and a fine is imposed for every English word spoken. Members usually play games and enjoy a good time, even under the difficulties of not being allowed to say all that they wish. The French Club, Le Salon, organized last December, with Mr. Hartwell and Miss Lewis as faculty advisers, has made splendid progress. The meetings are held once a month at the school and a good time is always enjoyed. The motive of the club is to awaken more interest in the study of French, and this is accomplished in many ways. A French proverb, or even a short French speech, is given in answer to the roll call and all the games played are French. An entertainment committee of three plans the amusements of each meeting and each member of the club serves on this committee in his turn. This makes the meetings of the greatest interest socially as well as inestimably valuable to the student of the language. The benefits of these organizations are far-reaching. The language comes easier to the student who attends the meetings and the Modern Language Societies figure among the foremost social clubs of the school. The French and German Clubs are planning to unite in order to give a "modern language afternoon" sometime next month. The French Club will present scenes from "Le Voyage de M. Perrichonf' by Martin and Labricke. Mr. Hartwell will coach the play. The German Club will produce "Nein," a German farce by Benedix, which willbe coached by Miss Mussaeus. These entertainments combined should form a delightful afternoon. THE 1915 ORIOLE 113 Der Deutsche Verein Vs!- OF FICERS. President ..... .... E ARL KARCHER Vice-President. . . ....

A great many times different members of the school interested in music have Organized a Glee Club, but each club met with the same fate. After the immediate interest had died out, the club went out of existence. Now we have a Cwlee Club started that seems to be doing things. In its president, Ray Burt, the club has an able leader and pianist. The minstrel show which was contributed as an act in the ORIOLE Matinee was a decided success. The rehearsals are held regularly and interest seems to run high. A club is started now Worthy of endurance. Do not let the interest die out. H GFFICERS. President ,..... ...,...,.,, ..........

THE 1915 ORIOLE The Orchestra 119 For the past few years the orchestra has played an important part in the musical activities at "Tech." The school is very fortunate thisyear in having an exceptionally excellent Orchestra. They have played many times in assembly and at the various dances and socials. Their fine playing was a feature at the mid-year "Prom" and they will play at the coming Senior "Promf' in the Auditorium. Besides playing for school affairs, the orchestra has become noted in the city for its outside engagements. Most Of the men will be in school next year and the prospect of a continuation of a successful orchestra is bright. MELVILLE SMITH ......... EARL KARCHER Cleaderj ..,. WILLIAM KUNZ .....,...

The membership has not been as large as might have been desired, but the club made up in earnestness and enthusiasm what it lacked in size. A number Of interesting and entertaining debates have been held, covering much ground in the matter of subjects. The interest displayed by the student body in debating could hardly be called immense, but the club hopes to give this subject the popularity it deserves. A great deal Of its success is attributed by the Forum to the efforts Of Mr. Richardson, the Faculty adviser, and Miss Gammons, who gave the members several entertaining and instructive talks. The club also wishes to express its thanks to all those who, in any way, contributed to the success Of the year. 1912 OFFICERS. 1913 DEMOND ..,. President ...... ..... R OOERs ROGERS ,.,..

Besides frequent club debates, it conflict with another organization, and is Assembly of Holyoke High School. The has twice engaged in arranging to meet the membership has been unusually large, and every individual has taken a keen interest in debating, and has Worked his hardest for the good of the club. The officers are to be commended for their efficient management of affairs, and for the way in which they have guided the des- tinies of the organization. However, a great deal of credit for the splendid showing of the society is due to Miss Weaver, the Faculty adviser, who has done much to bring about the desired success, and whose endeavors in their behalf have made her extremely popular with the members. The energetic and enter- prising Way in which the Agora has conducted its affairs is an immense credit to every one connected with it, and bears com- parison with the past years of its existence. 1912 OFFICERS. 1913 WICHMAN, . . . . .President ...... ..., W ICHMAN TONG ,...,.., . . .

THE 1915 ORIOLE 127 Debates THE FORUM-AC-ORA DEBATE. The most important event in debating was the annual contest between the Agora and the Forum for the possession of a cup offered by the ,late Miss Stanley. The cup had been won the previous year by the Agora, but it was transferred to the Forum when the judges gave the victory to their team, after a close struggle. The audience was large and enthusiastic, and the debate was in every way one of the best ever held in this school. The question: Resolved: That the government of the United States should own and control the coal mines of the country. Forum CAJYJ Agora CNeg.J C. T. KENNEDY I. G. WICHMAN, W. G.

For the hrst time, boys debated against girls in the first Agora - Pro et Con debate. The decision was awarded to the former, by asmall margin, the girls impressing the audience very favorably. The feature of the event was that boys upheld equal Suffrage, while the girls opposed it,-a reversal ofthe usual positions. The debate was very satisfactory in every way, and showed that the boys will have considerable difficulty in retaining their present supremacy.

However, nothing but praise can be given to the Athletic Association for the intelligent and earnest endeavors it has made on behalf of athletics. The school as a whole gave but poor support to the teams representing Springfield and this greatly handicapped the financial management. The entire success of athletics depends upon the school itself, and unless enough interest is displayed by the students in the fortunes of their representatives on the gridironfthe court, and the diamond, not even the hardest work on the part of the management can obtain success. The Springfield High School has always 'dis- played a conspicuous amount of school spirit in past seasons, and has given remarkable support to the wearers of the "S," but this spirit and this support have been lacking during the last year: to this may be attributed 'the recent reverses which the Blue and White has met. The Athletic Association has set an admirable example by its activity and energy, it is the duty of the student body to follow in its footsteps, and to do its best, in every way, to redeem the mistakes that have been made. In the face of the disin- terestedness displayed by those who should have given active support, and the failure of the school to supply the necessary patronage, the athletic season, with its many victories and com- paratively few defeats, has been, in reality, a credit to the efficiency of the management, and furnishes ground for the hope that future seasons may be more productive of victory.

With but a small number of last year's men as a foundation, a team was turned out that lost but three of the nine games played. The one blemish on the record was the loss to Holyoke High, Springfield's greatest rival, after not having been scored on by them for three years. Altogether, a score of 148 to 36 is a very creditable showing. THE LINE-UP. Right End .... ....................

Enthusiasm in the sport is rapidly increasing, as shown by the number of men who have turned out for the team. As yet supporters have been lacking at the games. Soccer now seems to have a start and there is no reason why it should not be one of the most popular of sports of Springfield. THE LINE-UP. Goal .........,.. Right Full Back . , Left Full Back .....

But four losses out of the seventeen games played, even if two of these were to the crack Westfield quintet, is a creditable record. THE LINE-UP. Left Forward .......

THE 1913 ORIOLE 147 Crew As usual crew practice this year started in the fall with the opening of the schools. The two regular fall races took place, the first being the red, white, and blue race between the 3d, Zd, and 1st crews, respectively. The second race, the "Tech"-Central, proved interesting, although "Tech" was conceded the victory before the starting gun was fired. The spring practice started on the machines at the boathouse the latter part of February, a date much earlier than in previous years. After two weeks of hard work on the machines, the crew went on the water March 5th, but because of high water the last of March was forced to take to the machines again. On April 4th the crew was again on the waterpreparing forthe Hrst race at Cambridge with the Harvard second Freshman crew. On May 24th the crew will go to Groton for a race with the Groton School crew. Other than these two races, none have been scheduled as yet, but it is not expected that relations between Worcester and Springfield will be broken off. The championship crew of last year set up a record of no defeats, and this year's crew hopes to again claim the Inter- scholastic Championship of New England for the Springfield High Schools. .a ' W THE LINE-UP.

RICHARDS 148 THE 1915 omou: Outdoor Track The outlook for a successful season on the track is particularly bright for 1913. There are many veterans and a wealth of new material from which to build a team. In the sprints we have Howard Drew upon whom We have depended for many points in the past two seasons. It is hardly necessary to say more about Drew except that he is running stronger than ever. " Bill " Reilly is another veteran sprint man who can be relied upon for points. Ernest Smith is again eligible for the sprints and with Sturtevant should complete a quartet of speedy men. Maloney will take care of the quarter and two-twenty the same as last year. In Britton we have one of the fastest half-milers in school- boy circles. During the past winter he ran third and fourth in the B. A. A. and lnterscholastic 1000-yard runs which same is some clever running. This season Britton should make a name for himself and his school. The loss of Capt. Taft was a blow to the team. Taft was stricken with appendicitis and forced to quit the game for a year. Taft was a good leader and a fast miler. He will help out with the coaching of the distance men. His knowledge of running will make him invaluable as an assistant to the coach. Britton has been elected to his place and should prove an able leader. The return of Chas. Todd to school strengthens the team wonderfully as Todd is the fastest miler Springfield ever had. If he can repeat some of his former performances Springfield will continue to reign supreme in track athletics. Another "vet" who will bear notice is Chester Seamans. Seamans is a versatile runner and can run a fast quarter, a very fast half, and a good mile. Besides these veterans there are many promising men who should develop rapidly this spring. Hawkins, Parker, and Sturtevant all run a fast quarter, and Gustafson should show something in the half. There are many men who have been training in the gym. during the winter, and when the first call is given will be ready for active work. In the weight events we have Birchard and Pyne, both big point winners last year. With this pair in form, the weight events will be well taken care of. ' THE l9l5 ORIOLE 149 In the jumps we are woefully weak and it remains for the coaches to develop some men for these events. Lyman Bowles should make a good pole vaulter when he gets a little more experience. It is hoped that we will again have the services of Fred Reilly, the former Yale sprinter, as coach. If this can be arranged it will be a sure guarantee of another championship team. Mr. Howard will take charge of the weight men and, as he is an expert on weight throwing, he should develop some new men to help out Birchard and Pyne. Manager Paul O'Neill has arranged a splendid schedule, in- cluding trips to Yale, Dartmouth, Amherst, and Williamstown, and a big Invitation Meet to be held on Pratt Field. With the proper support of the student body Springfield should annex another championship. Indoor Track The Indoor Track Team has had a very successful season, winning two of the three meets entered. On February Sth, the Holyoke team met defeat in the " Tech " gymnasium with a score of 39M to 235. The tables were turned, however, on February 14th when Holyoke won first place and Springfield second at the Fifth Annual Interscholastic Indoor Meet at the Y. M. C. A. College. Holyoke scored 27 points and Springfield 12. The other teams and their scores were: Hartford High, 11, Worcester Classical High, 6, Connecticut Literary Institute, 6, Westneld, 0. Springfield won its only other meet at the Hartford meet in the State Armory. The scores were as follows: Spring- field, 12, Connecticut Literary Institute, 10, Williston, 8, Hart- ford, 2, and New Haven and Holyoke did not score. Much could be said in praise of the way Manager O'Neill has handled his end of the team's business, and his fine efforts in behalf of the sport are to be appreciated. INDOOR TRACK TEAM.

THE 1915 ORIOLE 151 The Goatville Butter A Monthly: Magazine issued Annually EDITORIAL. Authors have just three reasons for writing: to become rich, to gain fame, or to enjoy themselves. But we are different. We don't want to make moneyg we had one example of the burdens of wealth when we had a nickel for a whole week, and we never want to be rich again. VVe don't want fame, as things are now we are entirely too well-known for our personal safety. We certainly did not write this to enjoy ourselvesg anybody who could have enjoyed the agonies we underwent in our capacity as editor, would have been even crazier than we are generally supposed to be. We had only one idea in writing this section: Revenge. The way in which alleged jokes were inliicted upon the weak and defenceless Comic Editor Cmeaning usj was absolutely criminal. Several times we were strongly tempted to let our friend, G. A. Poole, the Baby Undertaker Csee Advertising Sec- tionj, cart us off in state and plant us beyond all earthly jokers and near-jokers. The only thing that kept us in this vale of tears was our craving for Revenge. When this volume appears, we are going to hunt up every one who perpetrated any of those crimes against us in the shape of ORIOLE Contributions, and then we are going to sit down and enjoy ourselves, watching their fearful agonies when they reach this section. Burning in oil will seem a mere childlike amusement, compared with some of the fearful torments which lie concealed in the following pages. VVe want revenge in particular upon the individual who referred to our high and mighty majesty as "that fish--," and who stated that with us on the ORIOLE Board, no more jokes were needed, upon the weather-man who predicted " wind-storms and hot-air disturbances" every time we were scheduled to debate, upon the fiend who took malicious pleasure in dumping the entire contents of the wastebasket into our desk, leaving us to inspect the pile, under the impression that it was ORIOLE contributionsg and upon the scoundrel who informed Mr. Marsh 152 THE 1915 ORIOLE Qwho had just consented to contribute something on condition that we did not tell who wrote itj that we intended to print his contribution with the following: "The above was written by Mr. Marsh, but, as we promised not to tell, we cannot use his name here." We had a narrow escape the other day. On looking over the proofs,we were horrified to discover that some one with an over- developed sense of humor had put the pictures of the senior class under the heading "jokes" Cwhich, as a member of the audience remarks, is only a very natural mistakej. After a slight argument Cwe can still feel that bump on the back of our headj, the mistake was corrected, and our beloved jokes were saved from disgrace. Once we showed some of our material to a few personal friends and they immediately cancelled their subscriptions. We lost what little reputation for sanity we did have, and were ad- vised to entitle our section, "Ravings of a Dope-Fiend," or, "Pipe-Dreams of a Near-Lunatic." We were forced to adopt a continual appearance of gloom, because, if it had been suspected that We were going to print a funny Comic Section, we should probably have been murdered in our sleep. Some of the jokes handed in had whiskers on, and about all were old enough to vote. Our experiences have convinced us of three things: that any one who wants us to act as Comic Editor again will have to chloroform us to do it, that the safest thing we can do when the ORIOLE appears is to beat it somewhere out of reach of enraged readersg and that any one who mentions l'Comic Sec- tion " next September will never live to tell about it.

THE 1915 ORIOLE 153 A well-known former citizen and second-story man, Charles Todd, is once more in our midst. He was unable to pass the entrance examinations to Sing Sing, and returned to obtain more experience in his chosen vocation. He intends to take a prepara- tory course in the York Street Seminary. He reports that the police force of New York is so corrupted that all honest crooks will have nothing to do with it, for fear of having their morals contaminated. We take great pleasure in announcing that we were yesterday presented with a medal, by ourself. This piece of jewelry was given in memory of the time we saved our fellow-editor's life. He had ventured alone into the wilds of Chicopee, and we, fearing some danger from the uncivilized inhabitants of that reion, and armed with a bottle of smelling salts, organized a relief expedition. We found a number of savage natives engaged in the playful occupation of transforming him into hash, but, by producing and reading aloud a copy of the Recorder, we put them to fiight. By frequent applications of ginger ale, we restored our fellow- editor to his senses for what answers for themj, and beat a hasty but dignified retreat. With our customary modesty, we accept this memorial of our conspicuous heroism only because we were forced to do so by the united protestations of the populace, and we shall always treasure it as a proof of the love and admiration of our fellow men.

Why stay alive when you can be buried by Me? 154 THE 1915 ORIOLE THE MYSTERIES OF DOMESTIC SCIENCE As DISCOXVERED BY EXPERIENCE ' One time, we made an apple pie. After we had butchered the apples, we mixed the dough Ckneading dough came quite natural to us, as we always did need itj. Then we tried to roll it out. We sat on it, jumped on it, and pounded it with a flat- iron, but it did no good. We even borrowed a clothes-wringer to use on it, but it still remained about the same as a piece of India rubber. Finally we called in the neighbors, we all jumped on it at once, and the deed was done, the crust now being no more than three inches thick. We enticed it into the pan, dumped the apples in on top before it could protest,and began to put on the roof. That pie certainly turned out a beauty. It was rather pale and sickly looking but we explained that that was due to the heat. After admiring it for a while we attempted to cut it. Separating an unwilling Freshy from 75 cents for the ORIOLE was a simple operation compared with cutting that pie, although Business Manager Poole may not believe it. After sawing away for a while, we remarked that the knife seemed rather dull, and went in search for the axe. We put all our weight behind one good swing, but the axe-head bounded off and out of the window, and the pie merely looked reproachfully at us and showed abso- lutely no ill effects. We had forgotten to grease the pan, and we broke two knife-blades and a chisel trying to separate the pie from it, for the two stuck worse than poor relations. We next turned to shredded wheat biscuits. We shall never forget that terrible single-handed encounter with our first biscuit. It took fifteen minutes of solid argument to convince us that it was something good to eat and not a new-fangled shock-absorberg and, even then, we ate under protest. After some meditation, we attempted to break off a few strands. We stretched it out about three feet, but it showed no signs of parting and shrank to its original size when we let go. Then we tried to bite it but it tasted exactly like a hairbrush, and we got our mouth full of splinters. We tried to drown it in a bowl of milk, but it still showed signs of life, and we threw the thing out to a dog. THE 1915 ORIOLE 155 KILLMORE THEATRE BOXVERY BURLESQUERS-THIS WEEK ONLY I.

NEWS ITEMS. The first annual convention of the Ancient but Not Honorable Association of Has-Beens, held yesterday in the Municipal Audi- torium, resulted in the unanimous election of the following officers, by themselves:- President .,........... ..,... P IRNIE, '29 Vice-President .....,.... .... C U SHMAN, '23 Secretary and Treasurer ...................... MCCARTHY, 'IQQ DISHONORABLE MEMBERS. BURT, '19 RICHARDS, 'ZIM COOPER, '17 HARVEY, '18M The office of treasurer was, at first, left vacant, as the mem- bers could find no one whom they were willing to trust with real money, but upon the discovery that the treasury consisted of a nickel lunch check and a small round hole Qsaid hole being located in the lunch-checkj, Bill McCarthy, the eminent historian and German student, was selected as its guardian. President Pirnie, in his eloquent inaugural address, expressed himself as follows: "Teachers may come and teachers may go, but I stay here forever." It was decided that the Association would firmly fight a sus- pected plot on the part of the faculty to promote some of its mem- bers, the meeting declaring that "the longer we stay here, the THE l9l3 ORIOLE 157 better we like it." A blue card, ornamented with a simple red D, was decided upon as the emblem of the organization. The meeting came to a sudden end when it was rumored that Treasurer McCarthy had hastily departed with the above-men- tioned lunch-check, and, when last seen, the Association was headed in the same direction as that taken by Bill. President Pirnie, interviewed while passing through Indian Orchard on the run, stated that they had very little hope of recovering their lost fortune, in view of Bill's well-known and oft-proved statement to the effect that Ueverything belongs to me that ain't nailed down." The Forum has adopted Apollo as its patron, because he invented the first lyre. It has also been decided to raise a fund for the purpose of replacing Kennedy with a Victrola, the advan- tage of the latter brand of talking machine being that it can be shut up, which, to the great regret of the public, is absolutely impossible with the other. If the attempt fails, the club will purchase a Maxim Silencer. PIAZZA THEATER.
