In doing this, we mean to comment on the school life in general, its successes, its flaws, and to bring the faculty into closer connection with the student body. Ghz Spelling matches , ERHAPS one of the best things that has been done this year, is the attempt to improve the spelling of the members of "Tech." Mr. Webster, the head of the English department, has instituted spelling matches, whereby the eight classes compete every few months. So far, about one thousand words have been given to the pupils. At every match, the averages are taken, the class having the highest average being declared the winner. At the time of the ORIOLE'S going to press, the Seniors had won four times, while the juniors had one victory to their credit. The Sophomores and Freshmen also followed closely. In order to make the competition more keen, Mr. Webster has donated the "Spelling Cup," which goes to the class that has the highest average for five times. Mr. Webster, having served some years on the college examiners' board, well realizes the important part that spelling plays, not only in college entrance requirements, but in the business world as well. It is to be hoped that the spelling matches will be met with as much vim and vigor in the future as in the past. 12 THE 1914 ORIOLE Jfrihap warning Ctlixercises PON the arrival of the school in 1905, at this new building, a period every Friday morning was set apart by the school for a general assembly. In these assemblies the students have a large part. The past year has seen many exceptionally fine programs. Each class has had one morning in which it has presented a program given entirely by members of the class. The different courses have also been given their chance, as well as the French club, German club, the Forum, and other organizations. Much credit is due to the Friday Morning Exercise Com- mittee, which has faithfully assisted in preparing these programs. May the future years see as many good exercises as the past year has! Qtnunh the Snhnul O ORIOLE would' be complete without some mention of the school. We are thankful that the double-recess plan has met with the approval of both faculty and student body, for it is indeed a relaxation in the day's program. Little can be said about the crowded conditions at "Tech," for there is hardly enough room! It is to be hoped, however, that some means will be found to relieve these conditions before many seasons have past. To the average student, the bulletin boards in the first Hoor corridor are very interesting, except that it is almost impossible to read them, owing to the poor light. With little cost, some lights could easily be installed in these bulletins, thereby improving not only the light but also the looks. Iinterrlass Qtbletics F the various forms of athletic contests carried on in the high schools during the past year, one form deserves special mention. This is the system of interclass contests. During past years, it has been customary for the graduating seniors and the members of the junior class to engage in a spirited track meet. This year, however, the plan has been expanded so as to include all classes in the school. Not only do they have a track meet, but they THE 1914 ORIOLE 13 engage in all forms of athletic contests as well. Much interest is taken in these games by the student body, as is evidenced by the large number of competitors and spectators engaged in and present at them. The contests are managed solely by the students themselves. The athletic managers of the various classes meet and arrange a definite schedule of dates for each division of sport. These schedules are so arranged that each team meets each other team twice. By this method, the class winning the greatest number of games is declared the winner in that particular branch of athletics. With one or two exceptions, the teams have been fairly well matched and have put up a pretty high brand of sport. Great benefits are derived from such contests. The greater number of fellows in the schools do not know just what they are capable of on the athletic Held and have not confidence to try out for the varsity teams. But since a man needs no experience and very little practice in order to enter the interclass games, the entries are many. In this way, the student finds out what he can do and as a result it is hoped to secure more candidates for varsity teams. Qu Qppreriatiun HE editors of the ORIOLE extend their heartiest thanks to all those who in any way have supported this publicationgeither financially or by literary contributions. Without you, this book would have been a failure. Whether we have used your material or not, we are deeply grateful to you for your efforts. I I THE 1914 ORIOLE 15 WARNER, CHARLES F. ADAMS, BURTON A.

THE 1914 ORIOLE 17 Glass nf jfehruarp, 1914 The February class of 1914 was organized at the beginning of junior year. Of the one hundred entered as Freshmen, only about forty were classified for admittance to membership. Three members of the 1913 ORIOLE board were furnished by this class. At the close of the junior year, a social was given to the graduating Seniors to acknowledge their victory over the mid-year class at a previous track meet. The Junior dance was managed by the two 1914 classes together. With these activities, the class busied itself throughout the Junior year. During the Senior year, the class proved itself worthy, though small. It soon purchased a banner, the first owned by a mid-year class. During the summer it started a circular letter, which proved so successful that it was planned to continue it after graduation. As the end of the school year approached, activities began in earnest. To pay the graduation expenses, the "Senior Matinee " was run, January 9, 1914. On January 16, the February 1916 class gave a social for the graduating class in the gymnasium. The three combined for a "prom," which was held at Apollo Hall, january 19, and proved a great success. The day following the "prom," Mr. and Mrs. Warner entertained the class at a luncheon in the bungalow, which was enjoyed and appreciated by all. The next day was the last regular day of school, and most of the class were sorry to pass in their books. january 22 will long be remembered. In the morning, class day exercises were held in assembly, at which a notable feature was the presentation to the school of a large picture of Canter- bury Cathedral. Immediately after assembly, the class ad- journed to the photographer's where a group picture was taken. In the afternoon, the graduates received the precious diplomas with exercises at the Auditorium, the address being delivered by 18 THE 1914 ORIOLE Secretary of Commerce Redfield. The evening Of graduation, the class met at Clinton Hall with Mr. Warner and Miss VVeaver for the first f'Tech" class banquetg it was certainly enjoyed by all. After a bountiful feast, each member of the class was called upon for a speechg and a set of the works of Alfred Noyes was presented to Miss Weaver. This last event marked the close of the school career Of the class of "1913M." They were well represented in all activitiesg they were earnest in their endeavors to better conditions wherever they met themg they were loyal to "Tech"-may they not be forgotten.

KUNZ THE 1914 ORIOLE 43 Qeniur Zaistnrp Step this way, ladies and gentlemen. Yes, on your left is exhibit number 1914, which is so valuable and so large that we have to keep it in two rooms. This first is cage number 21. Some of the inhabitants are would-be "musicians" and, to-day being VVednesday, those few are kept in the Assembly Hall for the first half-hour. What's that? No, the remaining inmates are never let out at this timeg first, because they're too costly to be at large, and second, because the keeper, that stern-looking man with eyeglasses and a scarcity of head-cover- ing, finds it hard to keep track of all their escapades when free. Perhaps before enumerating the various celebrities contained in these two cages, numbers 21 and 22, I ought to tell you what the exhibit as a whole has accomplished. They entered four years ago, that is, most of them did, and almost immediately became famous. Two members of different sexes had jour- nalistic aspirations and hence established the f'Tech News" and f'The Breezes," the latter being of feminine gender. I will point out the two "editors" later. Then in the second or sophomore year, the collection was consolidated, or rather or- ganized, with Fox as leader. The class supplied some good debating material to the Agora and closed the year with a picnic to Riverside Grove. Some picnic! Then the very next year, 1913, things began to hum. With some help from the February class just ahead of them, 1914 collected and published that excellent annual, the ORIOLE, which I mentioned before. And, ladies and gentlemen, this same group of renowned persons ran a dance which at the time was said to surpass all that had gone before. I mustn't forget the Halloween party in the "gym" during the fall of the junior year. That also helped establish 1914's good reputation. In the spring, a Forum team, composed entirely of 1914ites, bested the Agora in a debate. And then the junior-senior picnic to Hampton Ponds in june was a "corker," in spite of the dampen- 44 THE 1914 ORIOLE ing of the spirits CI mean feelingsl received by a wet rain-storm. Still more dampness, however, brought gloom to 1914 when the 1913 exhibit pulled the former through the pond at Forest Park. But 1914 recovered its spirits last fall. Here, ladies and gentlemen, stand aside while these "music-lovers" return to their cages. There, that's the only real musician in the bunch, that fellow with dark hair and eyes and pink cheeks. His name is Kunz, the violinist, voted the class musician, you know. The gentlemen must be careful now. There goes the class flirt, Miss Kingsley. Right behind her is Miss Flint. She is not so stony as her name implies, for 1914 gave her the title of heart- breaker. Come, mister, eyes this way. Hey, stop l-VVell, one less visitor to talk to. As I was saying, ladies and gentlemen, they organized a foot- ball team which beat the sophomores and some say outplayed the juniors, although beaten on a Huke by a small score. During the winter just past, athletics continued to flourish in the class. A basketball teamfbut it is best to speak softly and reverently of the deceased. However, 1914 cleaned the track in good style. Among the social events was a Halloween party and a senior dance, the latter handicapped because of had weather. In dramatics, too, 1914 showed remarkable ability. Two of the forementioned exhibits, Derby and Rogers, gave an Irish play in a school assembly which was enthusiastically received. Rogers hasn't recovered from that brogue yet. Even more successful was the animal senior play presented on April 17. That was such a short time ago, ladies and gentlemen, that you probably know all about it. Derby was a winner in that, as was the whole cast made up of 1914 members. Rogers was supposed to he intoxicated in the last act. He did it very naturally. The money made from "A Scrap of Paper" will go toward making the "prom"--but I will not prophesy, the "prom" will speak for itself when it comes. In scholarship also, the exhibits contained in 21 and 22 excel. The civil-service prize was won by a 1914 boy whom I will point out later. There, ladies and gentlemen, you have a brief outline of what the class as a whole has done. Now for the individual celebrities. Here, in cage number 21, you may perceive that angelic looking, shapely boy in the front seat. His name is Worden, I mean that is his nom-de- plume. His real name is Cupid. Can you catch sight of that THE 1914 ORIOLE 45 fellow halfway down the second row? You can just see the top of his head. His name is Grover, commonly called Teddy. No-o-o, not exactly. He has no resemblance to T. R. This Teddy is really quite mild-mannered, and, besides, he is the class pygmy. Then, this fellow in the front seat here is Way, the rough neck. VVhat's that you said? Oh, yes, that quiet young lady way over by the window is Miss Gidley. Very studious. The only thing the class fears is that she'll get so nearsighted that she'll finally put her nose right in HV. V's eyes." Shocking, isn't it? You'd never expect that from her quiet demeanor, would you? That queer-looking girl next to Miss Gidley is Helen Fisk. Artists are always "queer-looking" you know. Yet, they say she is wonderful with the pen. That flaxen-haired, beg pardon, blond girl in the outside row there doesn't look ferocious, does she? Nevertheless, the collection classified her as class knocker. There are a number of rich exhibits here. Take, for instance, that fellow Wilder talking to Seely. Seely, by the way, is some rifle shot. Wilder is extravagant, terribly so, an awful spend- thrift. He is credited with having spent the fabulous sum of .1000S in one day. If you want to see the most popular female inhabitant, why just squint down that fourth row to the next to the last seat. Trask is her name, but she is commonly called 'ATrasho," probably on account of the way the interior of her desk looks. Oh, she's popular all right, especially with that worried guy with the light pompadour. Wouldn't you call her conceited though, if you knew that she always keeps a mirror in her desk. Say, it's funny, but the girl right in front of her was considered the most conceited in the exhibit. Let me introduce you to Kate Durfee, renowned actress, who has just terminated a world-wide tour to "Goatville" as leading- lady in the "Smithtown Comic-Tragedy Co." Truly, she is some actress, having been in practically all the "Tech" plays of the last few years. Well, I guess we'll have to stand aside now, the collection is moving. Where to? Oh, to various rooms throughout the building where they will show forth their knowledge to the other keepers. Isn't that a cute child? Miss Hopkins, more com- monly known as class baby. And there goes Holmes, class president and champion fusser. He doesn't care who it is, as long as it can be fussed. That's why he is following the celebrated 46 THE 1914 ORIOL E militant suffragette, brick-thrower, and hat-pin manipulator, Hon. Miss Lillian Kelliher, famed for her talking on argumenta- tive abilities. It nearly broke her heart when she had to argue against woman suffrage in an Agora debate two years ago. I am afraid I must be boring you with this recital about 1914, but really it is the most interesting exhibit in the whole school. But just for variety's sake, we'll stroll around and take a look at some of the other more or less interesting sights. We'll return to 1914 later. H'm, almost time for the third period to end. Ladies and gentlemen, here we have a most interesting collection of "trig" fiends in cage number 22. Most of them are 1914ites, some of whom you may possibly recognize. Oh, yes, there's the class joker, McClench, also captain of the crew. Why he was ever called a joker is beyond me. Maybe he is humorous when he's asleep. just a minute, please. I bet there's a letter for Houli- han in that bunch that just went in. Houlihan is the most conceited and vainest man in the collection. He usually gets a letter every day just at this time from some one whom the rest suspect is notaboy. Yes, I thought so. Here comes Houlihan on the run to get it. Shade your eyes, everybody. Quick! Too late. Get some water, one of you. The lady has fainted. I knew those neckties of Houlihan's would cause damage some- time or other. She'll come to finally. Out of the way, please, while these articles pass. It's the fourth period now. Party all intact? Then we'll move on. Hello, there goes Harvey, late as usual. Leon R. has almost attained the rank of a fixture in this museum. He's some football player, Harvey is. Faithful? Yes, very faithful. Stuck by the school through thick and thin. Not even the keepers could dislodge him. Oh! now we've come to some real brilliancy, compared with the rest of the collections. This fourth period English class in room 23 is renowned the world over for its literary work. Had a visitor from Germany a few weeks ago. Some class, eh! Let me see, have you made the acquaintance of Miss Bullman yet? Front seat. Well? Oh, yes, she is very good-looking, voted the prettiest girl in the class. just two seats in back of her is the famous ex-editor of the "Tech News," class pest, and general all-round nuisance. Oh, yes, he has brains After his successful paper, the News, he was offered the position of THE 1914 ORIOLE 47 errand-boy for the "Goatville Butter." Have you noticed the boy with glasses? No, not Stevens, he's the most ladylike man, not Morehouse, the class thinkerg but the Fierce-looking young- ster, I beg pardon, young man just behind the girls. He's a character, the class woman-hater, he won't tell why, but I guess it's on general principles. In back of Fletcher, is another celebrity, a quiet one though, somewhat of a hermit Stusik is. Quite the opposite is Willie McCarthy, last row but one, athlete, and most popular man, also famous for his facetious and original remark, HCensure me for my wisdom." The difficulty was that there was not much to censure him for. And directly in front of McCarthy is the king of them all, Charles T. Kennedy, best student, best talker, windiest man, politician, and what not? I would not dare vouch for Kennedy's student qualities, though he did win the Civil Service medal, but that he is class politician is undeniable. An ardent Progressive and admirer of Roosevelt, debater, manager, editor, Shakespearian critic CPD, actor CPD, humorist CPD. CThe last statement is doubt- ful, he being the originator of the remark: "I shall graduate from 'Tech' this june, the Lord and the faculty permitting."j Kennedy is one of the novel articles in exhibit 1914. I suppose, however, that all this is uninteresting to you. Oh, help Cexcuse me, ladies and gentlemenj, Kennedy has risen to speak. In this very class, C. T. earned the titles of windiest man and best talker. Well, since he's got started, there is nothing more to interest us here, so let's move on toward the lunch-room where even the guides are forced to eat. Gangway! There goes Bicknell to his occupation. Some giant, eh? They're thinking of enlarging the school building for Bicknell's sake. What's his occupation? Lunch-room grafter. I didn't get that. You aren't surprised? Neither is anybody else. CLoud noises below.j "Phew! Something dropped in the lunch-room all right. Either a bun or a bean. Oh, don't go. VVish you could stay to lunch and afterwards see the rest of 1914. You've hardly seen half ofit yet. There's the two Collinses, Derby, Radasch, Wilcox, Nevins, Rogers, and the Misses Rankin, Fowler, DeWolf, Wil- liams, Hubbard. Why, there's a lot of both male and female articles you have still to see. Anyway, exhibit number 1914 is some collection, eh? Oh! I see, you don't care for beans or buns. Well, neither do we. So, good-bye! 48 THE 1914 ORIOLE Sveniur Brupbecp It was a warm, sultry afternoon in june, and I sat with my chair tilted back and my feet on the sill of a wide-opened window. Not a bit of life was stirringg everything was as dull and as lifeless and as sleepy as one of Mr. Hartwell's French recitations. Suddenly I noticed a little old man standing at my elbow. 'fVVho are you, little peanut? " I demanded sleepily, wonder- ing at his presence, for I had heard no sound of his approach. "I," he replied, in a high, squeaky voice, "am the Hon. Professor Oswald Q. Skatz, the inventor of the famous Skatz's Elixir, who has vanquished Father Time, who can turn the hands of the clock either backward or forward, who has made Yesterday and To-morrow as one--" "Rave on, little one, rave on," I murmured peacefully. VVhat was one nut that he should disturb me who had collected dues from fifty? The professor opened his bag, and produced a tiny glass phial and a miniature drinking cup. "S-ee!" he cried, as he poured some of the contents of the phial into the cup, "I will give you a personal demonstration. Drink but of this and Time shall be as nothing to you. The years shall roll away before you and you shall see things as they shall be twenty years from now. Drink! and you shall know those whom you know to-day as they shall be when twenty years have passed! Drink!" So saying, he extended the cup. I took it from his hands, and raised it to my lips. "Why not?" I thought. I was too lazy even to ask the nearest policeman to summon an officer. "I may as well humor him, it might prevent his getting violent." So I drained the flask to the last drop. For a moment nothing happened. Then it seemed as though a fog had drifted in through the open window. The sunlight grew fainter, everything became indistinct before my tiring eyes, and then disappeared entirely. THE 1914 ORIOLE 49 I found myself walking along a street, which, though I could not recognize it, was somehow vaguely familiar. A signpost finally informed me where I wasg its large gilt letters proclaimed to all who passed that this was-" Elliot Street." It had changed a great deal since I had last seen it, one whole side was occupied by a group of magnificent buildings. I stood lost in admiration and wonder, until a newsboy happened along. "Say!" I hailed him, "what's this bunch of buildings? Is it a new municipal group, or does John D. Rockefeller live here, or is it the Capitol of the United States?" "Gee!" exclaimed the boy, "you must be an awful rube. That's the Technical High School." Long after he had gone, I clung to a lamp-post for support. Finally I summoned up all my courage and entered the grounds. Mounted on a tall stepladder was a pair of overalls, inside these was an individual built on the plan of a collapsible clothespin, attaching electric lights to a number of wires. 'fHello," I remarked. "Fixing the electric lights?" "Oh, no! Not at all," he informed me confidentially, "I'm merely holding this ladder down, while my assistant is returning with a couple of quarts of electricity." "Oh!" I said intelligently. "Could you direct me to the Principal's office? " But my friend on the ladder was busily engaged in examining his features by means of a small mirror. "What's the matter with your map?" I inquired. 'iNothing," he replied, "only I just got another one." "Another what? Another map?" "No, another freckle. Like my business card?" Handing me the latter, he hastily departed to the limousine which was awaiting him. On the card I read :- COLLINS and FLETCHER Electricity Wholesale and Retail Mail Orders Received After I had carefully deposited the card in a safe place Cthat is-the nearest ash barrelj, I proceeded up the front steps of an imposing structure. I neglected to watch where I was going, as a result, I came into immediate contact, iirst, with a banana peel, and secondly, with the sidewalk. After I had gracefully 50 THE 1914 ORIOLE disentangled the knots into which I had tied myself, I rose in time to see the perpetrator of the base deed hastening to parts unknown. One glimpse was enough, it was Tessie Fletcher. With a howl that might have been heard in Chicopee, I followed. Down the corridor, in wild pursuit, I sped, but I lost the race on the stairs, where I almost fell into the arms of a tall dignified lady who was descending. "Sir! " she demanded icily, "why didn't you stop to knock?" L'lVIadam," I replied humbly, "I never stop to knock. I leave that to Kate Cram. She was our Class Knocker you know, and I couldn't compete against a woman-" "Sir!" was the angry respose. 'IIs it possible that you do not know to whom you are speaking?" Then Qfiguratively speaking, of coursej I took a fall to my- self. "I beg your pardon, Miss Ha-that is, I mean Mrs. Hitch-or rather-er,-yes, ma'am," I answered eloquently. "May I ask how you are getting along?" "I am, at present, assistant to Mr. Lincoln, in the chemistry department." "Oh, I see," I murmured weakly. 'LYou're the one that put the miss in chemistry. lThere is no poise in poison."' And I leaned against the banister for support. "Poor Paul," I sobbed, "poor Paul! Wasn't it an awful shock to the poor boy?" "If you refer to Mr. Hitchcock," was the frigid response, "he is at present engaged in missionary work in Southern Africa. He has so far founded one CID Antisaloon League, three CSD Christian Endeavor societies, and sixteen U61 hockey teams." And she passed coldly on, while I sat on the stairs and wept. When I had recovered, I proceeded along the second Hoor corridor, until I came to a door labeled "Evelyn Fowler- Dieteticsf' I hadn't the slightest idea of what they were but I knew that "diet" had something to do with "eats," so in I stepped. A handsome, light-haired instructress was giving the class this problem: 'Alf a peanut and a half contains a calory and a half, how many calories would there be if I had a box of chocolates on the table?" "None," interrupted I, " I'd be beating it down the corridor with the box." The teacher turned sternly to me. "I beg your pardon," she said. 'ADid you speak?" THE 1914 ORIOLE 51 "Good-morning, Miss Fowler," I replied composedly. " Isn't it a fine evening? What a fine class you have! I've never seen a more intelligent group of dieteticsf' "Sir!" she replied, Hdietetics is the science of the systemiza- tion of nutritious alimentary ingredients." , "Sure!" I replied composedly, "I'll take four of them." And I retired to consult my pocket dictionary. I next descended to that historic scene of a thousand des- perate conflicts, the lunch-room. The following sign confronted mei- NoT1cE!!!! The management will not be responsible for doctor's or undertakers bills. Per order HAZEL BOWEN, Manageress of Lunch-room. Exactly opposite was a door labeled "Red Cross Society," which opened as I watched it. "Would you please inform me," I asked of the nurse who stepped out, "what the Red Cross is doing here?" "Certainly," was the reply. "When our classmate became the head of the lunch-room department, several of us, out of a sincere feeling of pity for the student body fespecially the stomachj, organized this society." She produced a card from the pocket of her apron and handed it to me. I read :- First Aid to the Injured. Ethel Hilton, Boss. Mary Kingsley, Head Nurse. " Do you have much to do, Miss Kingsley?" I asked. " No," she replied, "business is rather slow just now. Yester- day we had but nineteen cases, and only seven of them died." I suddenly remembered that I'd just had my dinner, and wasn't very hungry anyhow, when the door opened again and a small red-headed lady appeared upon the scene. "Anybody seen the rummy?" she demanded. "Which one?" I asked. "Oh, there he is now," she exclaimed, and departed hastily down the corridor with me trailing along about three feet behind. We soon encountered a great big husky about twenty-five hundred millimeters high and weighing a couple of tons. In order to gain a view of his face, I quietly mounted a packing- caseg then I recognized him. HSee here, you rummy!" she exclaimed, "didn't I tell you to be around at four o'clock?" 52 THE 1914 ORIOLE 'fVVell, I tell you, Ethel," meekly answered the giant, "I been workin' on my wireless telephone and-" " George Bicknell, I don't care if you are head of the practical electricity department, you come when I tell you!" The last words I heard, as they departed down the corridor were "And if you don't, there'll be trouble!" VVell, she was right. There was! So I sat down on the packing-case, and wept some more. After I had resumed my wanderings, I chanced upon the Assembly Hall, where a tall, dignified personage was holding forth. Upon inquiring his name, I was informed that this was the far-famed authority on Latin, Mr. William G. Rogers. As I appeared, he was saying :- "As the friend of my childhood, Virgil, remarks 'Et ceterae pluribus unum pro et con anno domini excelsior pro bono public0,' which, freely translated, means 'Advertise in the Goatville Butterf This morning we have with us the leading American authority upon sociology. She distinguished herself-and ex- tinguished the rest of us-by reading, in her senior year, such familiar kindergarten literature as Darwin's 'Descent of Man.' It is with the greatest of pleasure that I present to you the fore- most slum-worker of the country, Miss Miriam Bullmanf' "Won't you come in?" asked an attendant at the door. I declined. I had had enough of the "Descent of Man" when I had fallen down the front steps and I had got all.I wanted of slums by coming to school through Ferry Boulevard and Sharon faccent on the last syllable, please? Terrace. Besides, I didn't want to wake up the audience: I knew what a good sleep was, myself. Suddenly I became aware of a fearful uproar. I discovered the source on the back steps, there was a short man playing a fiddle, a long one with a hand-organ, a third conducting the music, and a fourth applauding vigorously. As I arrived, the noise ceased, and the last individual began to orate. " Fellow laborers!" he began. "I am assembled here to-day, in my capacity as walking delegate for the Association for the Prevention of Hard Work, to organize the Musicians' Union No. 423. I will now read the roll. All those absent will answer to their names. ' "Charles Ertelf' fNo replyj THE l9l4 ORIOLE , 53 " Charles Wilcox." QDittoD "William Kunz."

This world-famous German band, organized upon the profits of Mr. Ertel's Washington trips, must cease to exist. Let us strike! Let us combine! Let us demand -more wages and less pay!!!!" In response to this stirring appeal, the members of the band proceeded to disperse, swearing never to play again until their demands had been satisfied. A voice interrupted my thoughts. "Bill Collins makes quite an imposing figure, doesn't he?" "Nothing unusual," I remarked sweetly. "He was always imposing on some one." But the newcomer had approached Bill and was saying z-A "I, Samuel A. Wilder, who, by my reckless extravagance, have become a second Rockefeller, hereby present you, for your services in dispersing yonder aggregation, the cash reward of 39C and the Nobel Peace Prize." With tears streaming from his noble features, the hero drew himself up, and exclaimed: "I have but this to say: I seen my duty and I done it." But just now an interruption occurred. Around the corner came an excited group of women, from the banners they carried, I knew it was a suffragette parade. Not a second did I lose. With a speed that would have done credit to Howard Drew, I fled in the opposite direction. But my escape was cut off. From the other corner came a number of anti-suffragettesl I climbed a tree so as to escape observation, the earth is no place for a timid man when two groups of angry ladies come together. The scene that followed was far beyond the power of the English language to describe. Suffragettes and anti- suffragettes were mingled in desperate conflict, shouts, screams, handfuls of hair, bricks, etc., flew through the air. Suddenly, a loud clang-clang made itself heard. I knew the sound from past experience, it was the police patrol! Quickly a half dozen policemen arrived upon the battle- field, and immediately the conflict ceased. While the officers were restoring order, I descended the tree and sought the chauf- 54 THE 1914 ORIOLE feur of the patrol. I almost fell into the gasoline tank when I saw him, for I recognized him as Harold Paine. "Hello," said I, "how did the riot start?" "Like this," he replied. "Some of the prominent suffrage leaders-Birdella Ray, Elizabeth Flint, and joy Leete-were holding a convention here, when suddenly a number of anti- suffragettes, headed by Ruth Hoppe, Adelaide Hubbard, and the famous feminine orator, Mary Williams, also arrived. There wouldn't have been anything left if Police Captain Tubby Worden hadn't called out the reserves, and ordered Sergeants Shaw and West to pull them in." " But how did they get here so soon, anyway?" "Well, I tell you, Richard Hartwell, the celebrated German student and justice of the Peace, had a warrant sworn out against Miss Flint on a breach of promise suit." That was too much. I sat down on the sidewalk and fanned myself, until the patrol, with its howling, screeching bunch of femininity, had disappeared in the far distance. After a short rest, I proceeded to leave the grounds, and wandered down to Main Street. Here I halted before a large store with the sign- E. j. RADASCH Co. Gentlemen's Furnishings Entering, the first person I encountered was the proprietor, who seemed extremely excited over something. "Could you direct me to the dry goods department?" I inquired. "I'm busy just now. I just had to fire another statistician. But I'll call a floorwalker. Mr. Stevens!" And in response to his call, there appeared upon the scene Mr. Mervin Stevens! It was with the greatest of difficulty that I prevented myself from falling into his armsg but I con- trolled myself. He led me rapidly toward the rear of the store, informing me that the "most magnificent stock of spring suits was now being displayed by the celebrated coat models, Messrs. George Williston and Leo Houlihanf' He finally deposited me before a counter and departed. At first I thought I was alone. Finally I discovered, by accidentally knocking over a large dictionary, that there was a salesman concealed behind it, who was asleep and bore a THE 1914 ORIOLE 55 remarkable resemblance to a certain Teddy Grover. Gently but firmly, by dropping the dictionary on him, I awoke him, and demanded to be shown some dry goods. "Dry goods!" he exclaimed. "I've got the driest goods on earth. Here, for example, is a set of Edw. Morehouse's works, entitled, 'What I Don't Know About journalismf in 639 volumes. Or, if you prefer, we have the next driest thing on the market, a Latin-French-English-German Dictionary, written in col- laboration by Dorris Rankin, the noted educatress, and Helen Gidley, the famous linguist." "Not on your life!" I declared. The very thought of so much knowledge was enough for meg so I departed hastily. Hardly had I reached the sidewalk, when a dreadful accident occurred. A wagon loaded with garden truck and bearing a sign-"Earl Warner, Market Gardener"-came into violent collision with a motorcycle, ridden by the president of the Stusik Motorcycle Co., in person, and with a peanut stand. The latter was labeled as follows:- Buy your peanuts from Louis Hastings, The Friend of the Peanut! Kind Treatment of Every Peanut Guaranteed! The result of these three forces was awful to behold. Peanuts, vegetables, and howls filled the air. I lingered not at all, but having filled my pockets with peanuts, apples, etc., passed on. Seeing a newspaper boy, I called him, got him into conversa- tion, and when he wasn't looking, beat it with a copy of the "Daily Snooze." Opening the sheet to the theatrical notices, I read the following:- Engagement Extraordinary! R. S. Derby and Katherine Durfee, the Leading Lights on the American Stage,in Otto Hilton's Celebrated Drama, "Gasoline Pete-The Story of My Life." That was too much for meg memories of past dramatic productions overcame me, and I passed hastily on to the adver- tisements. Some of these affected me remarkably. One was:- CHARLEs GEOFFRION, Barber Dutch Cuts a Specialty Low Prices on Wholesale Orders Manicuring Department under charge of Miss Emie Hopkins 56 THE 1914 ORIOLE DONALD MCCLENCH-Society Dentist Teeth Extracted Painlessly-In full view of the audience!

They will be accompanied by Homer Seely and William Lord, the inventors of the recently perfected wireless system, and Henry Lewis, the famous architect and designer of the new Hampden County Prison, who sails to study early Greek architectingf' My attention was distracted by what seemed to be an awful riot. A fire-engine came down the street, a ladder was placed in position, and a Hreman ascended to the window from which the noise came. As he did so, the window opened. "See here, Johnny Way!" exclaimed a hearty voice, Hdidnlt I tell you not to interrupt us again? Now git!" And he got! As he descended, he muttered, "It's Lillian Kelliher and Clarence Tubbs singing again. Every time they sing they get the fire department out." Suddenly a loud cry resounded behind me. "Extra! Extra! "Bill McCarthy and Leon Harvey have just been graduated!" That was too much. I turned over and woke up. When McCarthy and Harvey graduated I knew it was only a dream!

Arriving there, he dropped heavily from his horse and knocked at the door of the main building. It was opened by a short, but sturdily built man, who, upon catching sight of his visitor, exclaimed, "Weill Well! If it isn't 'Fat' Napolitan. What in the world are you doing here?" His visitor stepped nearer and peered at him by the light which shone from the room. Then he said, in surprise, "Why, George Houghton. The doctor told me to come VVest for my health and recommended the Houghton Ranch, but I never suspected you were the owner of it." "Come in and make yourself at home," replied George. Then, closing the door after them, he continued, "I became in- terested in one of these irrigation projects out here, and, hearing that some of our classmates at 'Tech' were coming out, too, I decided to buy this ranch. You remember 'Pansy' Clark and McCrea? Well, they have another ranch just south of us and have gone into partnership. 'Birds of a feather flock together,' the saying is. I hear Daggett is rather interested in agriculture, also, so I shouldn't wonder if he settled down close by. McCrea and Clark are coming up after supper to talk over some improve- ments on the ditches, so we will pass a jolly evening." Soon after the evening meal was finished, a shout was heard outside, and a moment later Hve persons entered. A glance immediately disclosed the identity of the first two as Clark and McCrea, while the others, although somewhat changed, were soon recognized as Dearborn, Pardoe, and Schlesinger. A'They just dropped in to pay us a visit," explained McCrea, "so I asked them to come along. As there are so many of our old class here, let us talk over old times at 'Tech' instead of business, and give our minds a rest." The others all agreed to this proposal, accordingly, they 76 THE 1914 ORIOLE gathered around the fireplace and were soon lost in con- versation. "Do you remember when we first timidly asked where the Assembly Hall was, and how the other students stared at us from the doors?" commenced Napolitan. "Yes, indeed. And wasn't it hard finding our way around the building those first few days?" added Pardoe. "You remember, we boys sat in Room 21 then. That was when Mr. Francke was there, before he started out on his trip to South America." " Didn't we have an awful time getting our class organized?" put in Houghton. "We didn't really get together until the last half of our sophomore year. And even then we had quite a dispute as to what We should be called :-the February Class of 1915 or the Class of 1914M. It was necessary to hold class meetings every few days." "VVe started right in with the socials, though," remarked Schlesinger. A'We had two very successful ones just after the class was organized." f'Don't forget the dance at Touraine Hall, the sleigh-ride, and the other good things we had. We were right there with the good times," said Dearborn hastily. "It was too bad we didn't have more athletes in our class," interrupted Clark. "We were more of the studious lot. There was Daggett, who was a shark in every study, 'Peewee' Hodgdon, who could prove a whole theorem in geometry by substitutiong 'Dan' Lynch, the great English student, and many like them." " Don't say we didn't have any athletes in our class, because we did. How about Harris and 'Oppy'? They were right on the job," broke in McCrea. "So were Ogden, Hawkins, and several others. We were not out of the game by any means." "Say," interjected Napolitan, "do you remember how our class had to go way up to Room 38? We had a pretty good time up there in spite of the crowded quarters at first. How the school did grow the few years we were there! They had to put chairs even in the Reception Room to accommodate all the pupils. I wonder if they ever built that extension they were talking about when we were there? " "It is getting pretty late now," remarked Dearborn, "so I shall have to leave. But before I go, let us all give a rousing cheer for 'Tech' and the class of 1914M." And they did it with a will. THE 1914 ORIOLE 77 jfehruarp 1915 Qllass Brnpbetp NOME, ALASKA, Feb. 15, 1940. DEAR MAC :- I am in great need of some important information which is in our Boston office. A difficulty has arisen here in regard to the Alaskan railroads. You know to what information I refer, and so will you bring it to me as soon as possible? Yours, as ever, ilRED,y CLARK. This was the brief message I had received from Clark and was soon on my way. At a station, just outside of Boston, who should board my train but Maria Perkins who was on her way to Albany. As we were together at "Tech," our conver- sation naturally drifted into a discussion of our school days and old classmates. " How time does Hy," she commented. H Here it is February, 1940, and it seems but yesterday that we were students at 'Tech.' 'That reminds me that I met Helen McNamara in New York a week or so ago. She was working in an office on 42d Street. She had heard that Arline Stratton and Irma Zinn were teaching at Mount Holyoke and Cornell, respectively. Helen had also met Schlesinger, now the coach of the Springfield high schools' crew, and he had informed her that Grover owned a large home- -stead in North Dana, which, by the way, is a city of considerable size now, and that George Bond was a professor of modern languages at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology." We passed several stations before arriving at Springfield and the first thing that told us we were really at the beautiful "City of Homes" was a billboard advertisement of a Court Square Theater production. "That recalls to my mind," said Miss Perkins, "the time I saw Anna Williston and Mildred Whittemore playing, 'The time, the place, the girl,' at a Boston theater. It was a fine play and well acted, too. Oh, yes, and while I was there I visited a 78 THE 1914 ORIOLE friend in the City Hospital. Could you guess whom else I saw there? Well, seeing you can't, I might as well tell you. It was Lila Cogswell who was the head nurse at the institution." We rode on until we arrived at Albany where Miss Perkins left me. While I was gazing around in the Albany depot, I suddenly collided with a man carrying a suit case. I turned to see who had so rudely disturbed my peace of mind and recog- nized Harry Hiser, who was, he said, superintendent of a street railway system in a near-by city. How he ever worked up to that position, he would not tell and I could not guess. He also told me that Ethel Moore was running a millinery shop on State Street, Albany. I had just left Hiser when I ran across Hawkins who informed me that he was to represent the American Athletic Association on the cinder path at the approaching Olympic Games, and that Dora Nickels was the secretary for the Young Women's Christian Association at Syracuse, New York. These are but examples of the kind of stuff "Tech " exports. When I looked over my mail the next morning, just before reaching Buffalo, I discovered another letter from Clark. In this letter, he stated that he had just received word from Ki Chun, the President of China, to the effect that the latter was entertaining the White Sox championship baseball team on its around-the-world trip. This did not seem to be particularly exciting, except that it told of Chun's success, but, as I read on, I found that "Sid" Harris and "Win" Patterson were the principal objects of interest on the team, as they made up its battery. Well, so much more credit due to "Tech" athletics. Ki also wrote that Eunice Lilly was in missionary work over in China. In Buffalo, I met Grant, chief of the electrical department of our road. We soon fell to talking over the old times when we were classmates at "Tech." He knew of the whereabouts- of some of the others whom he had kept track of since graduating. Jacobson, he said, was interested in the plumbing business in Niagarag Youngberg owned an auto factory in Buffalo, and Whalen and Farrar were in partnership operating a long string of lunch-rooms. Now that I had heard of the positions that had been attained in life by so many of my classmates, I decided to look up the- rest. Before leaving Buffalo, I looked over a list of them I had made, thinking that, perhaps, I might run across some of them THE 1914 ORIOLE 79 farther on in my trip. I read that Aschah Lewis had come into possession of a fortune and was now traveling in Europe. I also noticed an entry beside Hodgdon's name that gave his address as Cleveland, Ohio. So I telegraphed ahead asking him to meet me when I arrived in that city. This he did. During our con- versation, I asked him if he knew where any of our classmates were. 'fYes, I know where two or three are," he said. "The last I knew, Louis Hastings was traveling in the interests of a chemical supply house. 'Cupid' N apolitan was a well known contractor in Detroit, and say, you remember Pardoe, don't you? " "I certainly do," I assured him. "Well, the last time I saw him he was playing the part of 'Shylock' in Shakespeare's 'Merchant of Venice' at Chicago. He told me that Doris Smith, you know he always was interested in her affairs at 'Tech,' was a costume designer for a large department store owned by Simes in Cincinnati. You know that Simes runs this store on a profit-sharing system." "Well," I replied, "he was a pretty fair sort of a fellow, any- way. But what are you doing for a living, Peewee?" I asked. "Oh, I am an auctioneer here in Cleveland," he answered. "Well," I replied, "it was my opinion, when at 'Tech' with you, that you would make a good one, for you certainly did have good lung-power in your younger days." I left Cleveland the next day, and stopped in Chicago. Here I met Lester Kennedy, now a man of leisure, returning East after having traveled considerably in the western part of the country. He said that he had seen Rose Daneshevsky, in Chicago, in charge of a crowd of small children,-a kindergarten teacher, of course. I did not stop long in Chicago but pushed on west. Referring again to my list of classmates, I saw that Perkins owned a cattle ranch in South Dakota and that Daggett was the proud owner of a great wheat farm in Idaho. When the train rolled up to a western city of some importance, I noticed a sign which read, EsTHER FERGUSON Dressmaking I knew in what occupation another of my classmates was. At a stop in Wyoming, who should board the train but a man whom I recognized as "Joe" Dearborn. When I asked him 80 THE 1914 ORIOLE what he was doing for a livelihood, he replied that he was a travel- ing salesman for a Chicago meat-packing firm. He told me that Damon was a very successful lawyer in Seattle, Wash., and that Wallace Parker was the physical director at Washington Uni- versity. While in Seattle, I spent a very delightful evening listening to Paul Karcher, the now famous cornet player. Well, Paul always did have a way of blowing himself that used to be very pleasing. If I was agreeably surprised to see Paul, I was more so to see Helen Sibley playing his accompaniment. He informed me that he had met George Houghton, who, by the way, had married Frances Irving, at San Francisco where Houghton was a chemist of well known repute. From Seattle I went to Nome, Alaska, and met Clark. A conference with a government lawyer, who happened to be our old friend, Daniel Lynch, ended agreeably for all concerned. Clark apprised me of the fact that he had heard of four more classmates while in Alaska. Swift was the famous Chief of Police in Vancouver, B. C., Stent was in the auto business with his brother in San Francisco, Oppenheimer was an insurance agent in Springfield, Ill., and Julia Sweeney was speaker at a recent suffrage convention held in Denver, always working for "the cause." After a short stay in Nome, Clark and I returned East, where we settled down to business again. At my office I found a copy of the 1940 ORIOLE, which had been sent me. You can imagine my surprise when I saw, as a frontispiece, a picture of Robert L. Aldrich and underneath, the following:- This volume of the ORIOLE is respectfully dedicated to ROBERT L. ALDRICH Head of the Chemistry Department T. H. S. - I was very glad that I had made this trip because I had unexpectedly met, or at least heard of, all of my high school classmates. This had forcibly recalled the good times we had had together when at "Tech," especially during our senior year, and I certainly did not regret the time and money spent. THE 1914 ORIOLE 81 iBrnpbe:p uf Brnpbets Answering a ring of the doorbell one Saturday morning, I found that a boy had left a circular under my door. Very much disgusted at being interrupted in the middle of my work, I was about to throw it away when the bold headlines, "Ladies, cast your vote for McCrea for representative from your dis- trict!" caught my eye. One glance at the accompanying photograph proved to me that this candidate and the most ambitious member of our high school graduating class were one and the same. Determined to use all the influence in my power for the election of this man, I resumed my duties, only to be interrupted a second time by a ring of the telephone bell. I answered a strange voice which inquired, "Would it be possible for you to make up a party of friends for a trip abroad this next season?" I asked who was speaking, and was much surprised at the reply, for the speaker proved to be our old classmate, Maria Perkins. She told me that for three seasons she had been personally conducting parties to Europe, as she had found that school teaching was too confining. She also promised to furnish the best of references. As I considered these unnecessary, I promised to do my best to form the party. Now, our plans are complete for the trip and we are looking forward to two most interesting events, for surely, as long as women have the vote, the best man will be elected to the office. f THE 1914 ORIOLE 83 Glass of Zane, 1915 President . .

Through all the ages it has smiled, serene, Upon each mountain peak and dark ravine. The Sphinx, that massive, awe-inspiring pile, The pyramids, the temple of the Nile, Are all forgotten, when this face is seen. This image could no human sculptor form, These features could no hand of mortal mold, Lo! they have stood unchanged through sun and storm, Through summer's scorching heat and winter's cold, They will not crumble While the earth is warm. Eternal are the things God doth unfold. M. M. S THE 1914 ORIOLE 'flitnas Cllfher Zllibus The wedding bells are ringing, The hour is getting late, "Oh, where, oh, where's the bridegroom?" Quoth his future little mate. I fear me something's happened, My luv is always near.. "Oh, haste thee, get that message," As a young knave did appear. Her bridesmaids hastened forward, And took the note away. They passed it to the pretty bride, Weeping in a scene so gay. A terrible pause did then ensue, The bride near swooned away. "He says that some one else Must take his place to-day." Forth there came another groom, Would gladly wed the bride. The camera man then turned the crank, And took them side by side. Then the blushing bride and groom, Their separate ways did go, For they were only posing For a motion picture show. D.J.G 94 THE 1914 ORIOLE Qssemhlles September 12 CHARLES T.

Baseball AJ THE 1914 ORIOLE 125 Jfuuthall i With the closing of the football season in VVestern Massa- chusetts, the Springfield high schools have again attained the championship. Starting the season with but a few veterans as a nucleus, a team was molded together which ranked con- siderably above anything turned out in the neighboring schools. VVith seven victories to their credit and a tie with Hartford the nearest approach to a reverse, the local players have rounded out a highly successful season. Especially gratifying was the victory over Holyoke High, as the stinging defeat handed to the local boys in the Paper City last year has now been entirely wiped out. The work of the line has done much in securing victory, while the back line could always be depended upon to do its share. The team has proven itself worthy of S. H. S. and much credit is due to the efforts of Coach Stone and of the second team.

At the first call, a large number of candidates reported and from these a wonder- ful defensive team was developed. After a number of shifts in the line-up, the right combination was struck and the team, after falling down in the middle of the season, came back strong and won all its games but three. The strong playing of all the teams in the league was a great surprise and the championship seemed to lie between four teams up to the last few games. However, Springfield and Westfield, having won the greatest number of games, were the final contenders for the championship. At the close of the season, it was found necessary for these two teams to play an extra game to decide the race. After much discussion, Holyoke was chosen as the scene of this contest, and there Springfield won with ease. The wonderful work of the team around McCarthy at center has called forth much just praise for Coach Stone's ability. THE LINE-UP Left Forward . .... . HARRIS Right Forward . . . . SMALL Center . . .

CLARK BURWELL OPPENHEIMER M EDLICOTT PATTERSON STUSIK W I-IALEN DOWD THE 1914 ORIOLE 133 9. . 9. Cllltehi Last fall the high school boat-house again became the scene of great activity. During the fall season, the material was sorted over and the crews for the Red, White, and Blue race were picked. That race was won by the White crew. Later in the season, the Pirnie brothers offered a cup to the winner of the Tech-Central-Commercial race to be competed for annually until some one school won it for three consecutive years. The Tech crew carried away the trophy for the first year. This spring crew practice started up with unusual vigor, there being more candidates than ever before in the history of the schools. Early in the season, Capt. Roderick Pirnie was compelled to drop crew because of blood poisoning, and Donald McClench was elected to the captaincy. Two races were scheduled this spring, one at Yale, May 8, the other at Groton, May 23. The crew was defeated at Yale by two and a half lengths. The line-up follows :- Bow, WALTER KERR 6. CAPT. DoNAI,D NICCLENCH 2. DAVID DUTToN 7. EUGENE DANZIGER 3. CYRIL HAYHURST Stroke, FREDERICK LEONARD 4. RAYMOND SWIFT Coxswain, RUDOLF BENNITT 5. WALTER STUSIK Manager, GEO. A. POOLE Coach, HARRY' BENNETT 134 THE 1914 ORIOLE Zlnhunr Wrath The indoor track season has not been as successful as it might have been. At the first call for candidates, a large squad reported. However, these candidates seemed to have been mostly runners, very few jumpers and heavy men reporting. Nevertheless, the pole vault and high jump were taken care of fairly well by Bowles, Baker, and Munyan, while Kinney has shown the way in the broad jump. In the shot-put, we were woefully weak, but "Willie" McCarthy did his best and, con- sidering the fact that he had very little practice in this event, we must admit that he did better than was expected. The most pleasing part of the whole track team was the relay squad. This team was composed of Sturtevant, Hawkins, Seamans, and Captain Maloney. Hawkins is a new man but he showed such promise that Coach Stone decided to try him on the relay team. He soon showed that he was the man for the position and became one of the strong members of the team. This group has been far superior to anything ever turned out by the Springfield high schools or by any of the other high schools in the neighboring towns. Although the track team was de- feated in the meet with Holyoke High, the relay team upheld its end of the contest and won with ease. In the lnterscholastic Meet at Hartford, the relay team again showed its superiority over the other Valley teams, this time not only winning the event, but also winning the championship of Western Massachusetts and Connecticut. This team has done much toward upholding the reputation of the Springfield high schools in track athletics. THE 1914 ORIOLE 135 Q9utiJnur Trask The present outlook for the 1914 track season is very promis- ing. VVith a few veterans and much new material of unknown value, a successful track team should be developed. Of course, it is beyond hope to think of uncovering a marvel to fill the place left vacant by Howard Drew, for Drew is in a class by himself. In losing the services of Drew, Springfield High has lost its greatest point winner on the track. At present, Drew is breaking all records in the Sprints for the University of Southern California. Another great blow to the team was the loss of Britton, its fast half miler. Britton was certainly one of the fastest men on any of the high school track teams and the loss of his services will be greatly felt this year. Maloney is still eligible and will again take care of the quarter and two-twenty events. Reilly and Seamans, both veterans, should add a number of points in their events. With the experience of last year, Hawkins, Parker, and Sturtevant should show something this year, while Gustafson can be relied upon in the half. Bowles and Munyan are good for the pole vault and high jump and Harvey will take care of the hurdles. In the weight events, we will have to depend upon two new men, Buckler and Porter. These men size up pretty well and should win some points. Manager Glen Burt has been working hard and has prepared an interesting schedule. Beginning with May 9th, the team will be kept busy every week. Owing to the poor weather, the squad was late in starting outdoor practice, but Coach Stone has been hustling the men through good stiff workouts and they will be in first class condition for the opening meet. 9 .. 1 .
