We dedicate it especially however, to those teachers, Miss Bourne, Mrs. Howes, and Mr. Smith, by whose display of this spirit, We as a class have profited most directly. May all that is good in our book be interpreted to say, "We have often wondered how it happened that so many of the very best teachers in the world came to Tech." 3 THE TECH TIGER DIRECTORY OF THE FACULTY fName.r of Dzpartmenl Headx in Capilal Lcllerxj CHARLES FRANKLIN WARNER WARNER, CHARLES F.

Ars soon as Violet could reach the piano keys her fingers would almost unconsciously drift into Rachmaninoff's "Prelude in C Minor." After seeing the unlimited advantages that Tech offered in music, she established her- self here for a three-year course. Violet used to be a. regular manhater, but her be witching music has succeeded in charming so many young men that her program for the "Prom" was filled months before hand. She has begun to think that applicants for a. place on the list like Walter Juckett and Clifton Tourtellotte are not to be looked lightly upon. May others be as enchanted by your music as your almost innumerable friends have been. ENSLIN, WILLIAM, was born April 10, 1907, at Brookville, Ind. Bill, however, was attracted to the East. CI wonder why?J Upon arriving in Springfield, he learned what a lot of hard markers the teachers at Tech were, so to satisfy his al- most unquenchable thirst for labor, he en- tered this institution, taking the leadership of a kindergarten upon his shoulders to complicate things. His unbounded amount of knowledge was then planted in the fer- tile soil of some of his pupils who have since then made Bill sew every button back on his vest more than once. His only fault was, he had a favorite, Gail Allen. His pupils became too bright for him and the teachers too stupid, so he leads a very se- cluded life now except for the never-ending listdof applicants for manager of his house- ho . FINDEISEN, KATHERINE, was born July 5, 1908, at Springfield, Mass. "Kay" has always been noted for her delightful cooking, so she thought Tech might reap some benefit from her. fTake the hint, boys.l But upon arriving here she found that she knew so much more about Home Economics than that department that she would not bore herself listening to the things she had known for ages. "Kay" decided to go in for society and she went in for it strong. Her calendar is always full, so that usually the only time you can get a date with her now is from 3 to 5 A. M., and about two months in advance. Her good nature is the foundation of her personality. Lucky is the man who changes the name of Findeisen to -- well, I can hardly say, there are so many. 28 GOLDIN, BESSIE, was born January 16, 1908, at Springfield, Mass. "Bess" was always very bashful and quiet and a per- fect manhater. Her years at Tech have been one great calamity after another. She believes that children should be seen and not heard. However, she does condescend to listen to the sweet nothings of---? Why, we fail to see, yet we do think that they would make a charming couple, Bessie so quiet and domesticated, and Aaron so wild, dashing and collegiate! GILLIGAN, FRANCES, was born No- vember 25, 1907, in Springfield, Mass. Per- haps everyone does not know it, but "Fran" is quite a church-goer. Reason? "Fran" was never so interested until she found out that all the Springfield College boys went. Now she has developed a hobby. She does so adore walking around the college campus. Her one ambition is to enter the silent drama and play in the revision of "Merton of the Movies." As to the hero, perhaps there is some particular choice, but we don't know about it. GUIDETTE, MARIO C'Mud"J, was born February 19, 1909, in the same old hick town, Springfield, Mass. After many wear- isome and sleepless nights, "Mud" decided to come to the engineering institution. His first year was occupied trying to get around Miss Monceret. He did. Congratulations! "Mud" starred on the Hookey Team, where he won several medals for his ability exer- cised there. This serious-minded gentle- man is going to be a dentistg the pleasure is all yours! "Mud" claims that he has never been in love, nevertheless, we know some who have been in love with him. "Hey, Joe", don't get so 'citedl HAWTHORNE, HERMAN FRANCIS Calias Specsl was born in Newport, Me., March 24, 1910. It is to be noted that the language of this notorious character could be understood at the age of one. "Eat" was the extent of his vocabulary-but it was sufficient. His father, a doctor, at once realized that the boy possessed an unremov- able tape-worm, and so his monstrous ap- petite has since proved. But the worm is a considerate creature, for anything lacking in the line of surplus fat and beauty is recompensed by the excellent brain mate- rial. More than a dozen teachers, to say nothing of the rest of us poor mortals, have been struck dumb by his intricate and im- possible puzzles. He knocks mathematical problems for home runs and French trans- lations he eats alive, Ever since his first day at Tech, he has been a conspicuous and well-liked person, carrying no small reputa- tion in studies. THE TECH TIGER HOFFMAN, KARL WALTER falias Orenoj, was born September 18, 1908, in Feeding Hills, Mass. Slowly, slowly, "Oreno" developed to a size almost too large for Buckingham, so he was trans- ferred to Tech, an institution which could more easily accommodate him. His whole interest was devoted to forging. He imme- diately decided to be a blacksmith, for he could manage horses so wellg however, his in life is to be a married sole ambition man, for this needs more enthusiasm than This is to be expected, for anything else. "Oreno's first love affair was in his cradle days 'cause he always said, "When I see a good lookin' girl I know it."-and fat men usually do. JUCKETT, JACOB falias Juckj, was born May 26, 1908, in Mittineague, Mass. At an early age the parents of this little boy observed, through his baby utterances, a strong voice and a hearty appetite. Both since have been equally well cultivated fespecially the lungsj, though many sharp hoes and spades have been dulled in the attempt. Today, as a result, he can readily make himself heard. Around Tech he has a unique stride or strut with an old Boston bag, which he married during his Freshman year fthe only love affair of his lifej. He makes a figure not altogether unfamiliar. He is clever along many lines, especially along the lines of bluff and bunk, convinc- ing his teachers that he really knows some- thing. On out-of-way Rogers Avenue. of isolated Tatham, in God-forsaken West Springfield, his residence has been located for some time now. What his intentions, ambitions, pursuits, occupations are, or will be, no one knows, including himself. But as long as he can talk with mouth or hands, there is no fear for his uncertain future. READ, IRVINE lalias Babej, was born August 24, 1905, in the famous city of Springfield, Mass. From the very first day "Babe" was a perfect manhater, so that's why she came to Tech, because there was a scarcity of male creatures here. During "Babe's" sojourn at Tech she was always in Dutch with some teacher, due probably to her failure in preparing her lessons, and her disinterest in her subjects. The only was person that kept "Babe" at school "Pygmalion", and due to his magnetic per- sonality and untiring aid to her. she will receive a diploma January 21, 1926. TOURTELLOTTE, CLIFTON FRED- ERICK, was born March 8, 1907, in the historic town of Boston. From the day he was born, his wealth of grey material was realized, so he entered his first year of school at Tech prepared to exercise it. All his Freshman year was spent trying to make a hit with Dr. Clune. He made a home run and was thus awarded the history 29 medal. The remainder of his time was pretty well occupied, his falling in love and out again swallowing most of his fleeting moments. Personally, we think that "Tick's" one ambition is to win Anna for a wife, however, he claims that he aspires only one thing, to be a job-hunter. May your overfiowing abundance of vitality sat- isfy your longing! WALLENIUS, GEORGE falias Wallyj, was born October 29, 1908, at Springfield, Mass. At three months of age he began talking and treating subjects of philosophy. Immediately his parents realized his mar- velous power of speech and for this reason sent him to Tech that it might be de- veloped. Wally has been the life of our class meetings. More than once our assem- bly hall has echoed and re-echoed his force- ful phrases. He is without doubt our Pat- rick Henry. "Wally's" most memorable and inspiring speech ended thusly, "Ah, fellow- men! Who talks much must talk in vain!" MROZ, ANNA, was born November 4, 1908, in the great metropolis, Indian Or- chard. Anna had always been fascinated by anything in trousers, so she decided to come to Tech where that specie of plant life flourished. She has ruined more men and more reputations than remain to be told. Still there's one fair prince she has suc- ceeded in keeping quiet, George Wallenius. But then he wouldn't stand a chance once Anna got wound up. Isn't it queer what power woman can exert over man? WOODMANSEE, HAROLD DUDLEY falias Pee-weej, was born in Holyoke, Mass., December 1, 1908. The parents of this illustrious youth knew they had some- thing on their hands when he started to grow. It is said that on his first birthday he swallowed a new penny, whereupon he was destined to become one of the world's greatest financiers. Already his financial abilities are shining through this unique book and in all probabilities they will con- tinue to glow. After the election of senior officers, he was found to be unanimously chosen Member-at-Large, although Karl Hofman, his bosom friend and contempor- ary, now outweighs him. WOODS, WILLIAM falias Billj, was born in Springfield, Mass. Upon arriving at Tech, he immediately saw that the school needed a better coach than "Chief" Walmer, so he applied for the position. Dr. Scott, realizing the athletic prowess of this young man, at once gave him full rights to coach the marble team. Under his capable super- vision the team has been awarded more asbestos lined putty trophies than at any other time during the history of Tech. It is only hoped that the school department will be able to find someone to fill the im- mense gap left by his graduation. THE TECH TIGER Will of the Class of 19255 We, the Class of 192515, of the Technical High School, in the City of Springfield, County of Hampden, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, being of sound mind and memory, do now record our last Will and Testa- ment, hereby revoking all former wills and codicils at any time made, in manner following: First-We do hereby appoint Mr. Smith and Miss Bourn as our execu- tors.

What can't a handsome, courteous president do? OUR IA SOCIAL Juckett was chairman. Remember? OUR IIA SOCIAL Juckett was absent. Remember? OUR BAZAAR The bottoms fell out of the Commerce movie and the Central social and every- body dropped into our circus. OUR PROM Most everyone learned to dance the night before, and some learned at the Prom. THEN the combined sweetness of sound and grace of motion uuntwisted all the chains that tie the hidden soul of harmony." OUR BANQUET They say all's well that ends well. That may all beg but although our banquet, since it is a 192555 affair, must certainly end well, still we think three riots Qto date of this writingj are unnecessary accessories to the fact. If we had only followed Mr. Kasoff's suggestions in the first place we would have saved a great many motions and a lot of Eleanor 'Challander's breath. Tourtellotte would like to have the banquet at the Highland, if he wasn't afraid that if his old friends the waiters should see him with such a high-brow bunch they would expect a S20 tip apiece. OUR SLEIGH RIDE Norton thinks there's always room for one less, and the fewer the merrier. Just like Norton. Miss Challander didn't think so 3 but she lost, and so did the sleigh ride. OUR TIGER Stevenson said: "An aspiration fgood year bookj is a joy forever, a possession as solid as a landed estate, a treasure that we can never exhaust, and which gives us year by year a revenue of pleasurable activity frecollectionl ." He also said fthe staff is with himj : "How little do ye know your own blessedness, for to travel hopefully is better than to arriveg and the true success is to labor." THREE TYPES OF TECH TEACHERS 1. They improve their world not by scold- ing it, but by setting a sublime example for it to see and follow. 2. They, having a true spirit of helpful- ness, make it easy for us to improve by plainly showing us our faults. 3. They love all because they see good in all. The more good there is the more they love. TECH GIRLS We educate ourselves that we may be use- ful, for by our usefulness we make others happyg and our own happiness is propor- tional to that which we bring to others. Is there any calling in which it is pos- sible to bring more happiness directly to others than in nursing? A good nurse, though, must have a deep love for human- ity. She must have a delicate conscience and must be glad to sacrifice fleeting pleas- ures for usefulness and sublime duty. Not very many Tech girls are destined to be nurses, perhaps. But, according to au- thorities, good nurses are not plentifulg and might it not be claimed that on the whole our Tech girls more nearly represent the type just described than the girls in the other high schools? Is it not true also that the course they take is the best prepara- tion for hospital work? MARKS We come to high school to get good marks and when that is accomplished we may be thoroughly satisfied with our high school careers. That is the principal we follow. Ask yourself? We don't spend our time in school chiefiy trying to improve our char- acters, our minds, and our personalitiesg in- cidentally getting good marks. Rather we spend it trying to get good marks, incident- ally acquiring such improvement as is forced upon us in the process. Considering only our school life that course of action is not so bad. But after school is over we face the world as beings prepared or unprepared. Our associates will be more interested in learning what our high school has made of us than in learning what marks it gave us. If our marks have been stressed and our improvement merely that which came incidentally, we face em- barrassment to ourselves and the dishonor of discrediting our school. The question is simply: Shall we have it easy now or then? 34 Wm, THE TECH TIGER M A For To The following is a letter picked up in the mail on a steamer going from Fran-ce to Italy January 20, 1940. The letter was minus its envelope and the signature was illegible. We are pub- lshing it in the hope that it will be claimed either by its author or its in- tended receiver. Academie des Sciences, Paris, France, Jan. 15, 1940 Dear Mario, You were the only one of my class- mates of 192515 whom I did not see at the World Fair which ended last week. Mario, my friend, my heart is broken and you are the only one to whom I would tell my troubles. The short of the story is that just three weeks ago I was one of the coming scientists of Paris an-d quite popular among the savants of France. To- day after journeying to the Fair, I am back in Paris. resigned to the ut- most seclusion, living in silent, som- ber retrospect, waiting for my end. But such a contrast between this state an-d the joy that I experienced when I first thought of seeing a World Fair on the Very ground over which I so loved to hike in the days of Eastern States Expositions. I had been so busy, so wrapped up in my manifold activities here that all I knew about the old class was that J uckett was governor of Califor- nia, and in charge of the California Building at the Fair. I s-ent him a letter and set sail. I was indeed surprised to see the great liner steam straight up the river with no stops between France and Spring- field. An American passenger told me that the Foster, Gordon, and La- violette Company, which did the dredging, had a hard time getting the contract because of Juckett's influ- ence in Congress and the fact that he still sticks to the ideas about Con- necticut river dredging that he had in his debate with Birchard in 1924. The wharves at which the boat docked form the end of a vast boule- 35 IDOITOW vard extending in one magnificent sweep straight up State Street to Winchester Square. A label on the concrete gateway to this construction bears the name of the Mirarchi and Busi Construction Company. I remember telling you on-ce that my ideal woman was one whose love of things beautiful and noble was a radiant, rainbow fire within her, of which we caught infinitely inspiring glimpses in the sparkle of sympa- thetic eyes, the melody of a sweet voice, the charm of a modest manner and the thoughts of a perfect, univer- sal mind. I told you that when I met her I would love and win her. I met her wh-en I stepped off the boat in Springfield. One glance at Cather- ine Barrett told me that here was greatness and my hope, I thought, for perfect happiness. Quite naturally the first thing we spoke of was Mr. Juckett. "He is too busy to entertain or even see any of the class just now," she said, "but in three days from now he is going to give '251Q a royal reunion in the California building. Be patient and in the meantime I shall unfold to you the histories of our old friends and their parts in the Fair." We spent the remainder of the first day at the Industrial Exposition, located about where the Venetian Gardens used to be. The bridge which we crossed was not the well-known Memorial bridge, however, and I asked my guide what had become of that. "Well, you remember Hofman?" she asked. "About a year ago he took it into his head that it would be a good idea if instead of writing an- other essay about "Fishing on Water- shops Pond" he wrote one about "Fishing off the Memorial Bridge." So, having a drag with Mayor De Wolfe, he obtained thru him a per- mit to take an unheard of weight onto the bridge, and 'he and Hill went fishing. So did the bridge. De Wolfe is in jail for manslaughter THE TECH TIGER and wanton destruction of public property." The first industrial exhibit which we examined was an all steel ship anchored at the West End of the Bridge, reported to be the fastest in the world. It's not much on size but, like its builder, Everett Collins, it sure is dressy. Collins built it at his Saybrook shipyards with the help of Hardy as building engineer and How- ard Brooks as mechanical engineer. The most striking exhibit was a display of Everlasting Inner tubes in- vented by Robert Allsop and manu- factured by his partner Dexter Bow- en. Allsop's tubes used to get so thick with patches that they would- n't fit into his tires so he invented one so small you can put on 1298 patches and still get the tube in, if you leave out the air. We were shown an ideal modern moving picture in the making. The scenario was entitled "Padlocked Cafes" by George Wallenius. The cast was composed of 1,000 chorus girls and Everett Norton. Each girl had a high sounding title. Dot Par- nell was "Cleopatra", Eleanor Chal- lender, the "Life of the Party"g Doris Hanaway, the "Cat's Meow"g Fran- ces Gilligan was "The Breadwinnerng and Doris Gilligan was "The Ber- ries." Of course the show had to have heroes. These were a couple of cops who Went by the title, "The Death of the Party." Wellington and Calk- ins took the parts. The plot wasn't very good. The costumes were the feature of the s-how. They were designed by Rose Litman. She designs most of the costumes worn on th-e American stage now. She has ruled that all her costumes be made of silk and the silk manufacturers have thereupon gone out of business. Bill Woods was the director and his long experien-ce in high jumping helped him in training the girls. He said. however, that if Edna Womble, Dollie Williams, and Violet Hill were not so modest he would insist on their being in the show because they cooperate with him so nicely. Earl Cour was camera man. He didn't have to ask the girls to look at the camera. They couldn't keep their eyes off his bounding Wave, which Mr. Yeomans made so famous. Catherine 'brought me next to ia dark and dingy cellar where a great mathematician, the Hon. H. Haw- thorne held forth. He was demon- strating to everyone who came his way that Venus traveling 10,000 light years per second and Jupiter traveling 20,000 light years per sec- ond in the opposite direction will come together on the day Steve Wil- lis graduates from high school. Haw- thorne also iigures out that if he lives in that dark room for 100 years more and the darkness bleaches out 600 freckles per secon-d he will be buried with a clean face. There is just one man who differs with him. Aaron Kurnitsky says there will be 1.732 freckles left. He probably made a mistake because his mind isn't so strong since Bessie Goldin married Maurice. I will not say I enjoyed that day with Catherine. Love is enjoyment raised to an infinite power. I dream- ed that night of an angelic singer, a sweet philosopher, and a heaven born poetess, one person, Catherine. I met her the next day by appoint- ment at the boat club in time to see the single scull boat race between Ralph Kerley, Middle Atlantic Cham- piong Bill St. Marie, New England Champion: and Lorenz Lotz, World Champion. We might have enjoyed the race if Jake Kramer hadn't, spot- ted us and demanded that we go im- mediately to the Auditorium and hear him and Ruth Darby debate against Buchanan and Marjorie Bar- rus, on the question, "Resolved: That it would take longer for Ed Moore to learn the Einstein theory than for Gail Allen's hair to grow as long as Piper's." A sign which we saw opposite the Auditorium on leaving bore the trade mark of the Dunscofmbe Outdoor- Advertising Co. It announced an all Springfield program to be held at the 36 THE TECH TIGER new Coliseum in West Springfield. First on the program: Automobile race 'between Allan Readio and his famous "Cushion" Balloons, and Earl Fassel with his own mercury vapor engine. Second: World's Champion Wrest- ler, Harold Woodmansee, meeting Swifto Thor, Obeso Emery, Hugo Thompson and all comers. "P-ee Wee'-s" electrical twist makes him in- vincible. Third: Boxing Match between "Soccer" Brooks and "Gritty" Gard- ner. A good fight it would have been if the referee, Bill Heathcote, hadn't hollered when the fight was hottest, "Cut it out, here comes Morgan." The program was concluded by the Warner Wonders, vaudeville perform- ers: Ray the Lanky Lover, Beatrice the Diabolical Danseuse, and Clar- ence the Comical Clown. The last day of the Fair, Catherine met me at the International Building to see the first sitting of the newly formed World Court. Albert Runs- dorf is chief magistrate, Parsons and Sanderson are the judges who repre- sent the United States. The case was over the United States' violating its promise to pre- vent Dave Kasofsky from robbing the French people of all their money by selling tickets to hear Joe Bilo- deau's one piece orchestra. We wanted to take in the Woman's Building before night came and with it the grand finale of the Class of 1925Mg, at the California Building. Bill Enslin was in charge of this building, not because he liked the job I imagine, but because the women all know him and know the way he handled the Tech Prom. Anna Mroz was with him when we arrived, and insisted that the first thing we do be to see her exhibition of an ideal lady's boudoir. It really was a picture gallery and, our opin- ions to the contrary notwithstanding, she maintained that this collection contained the pictures of the seven handsomest men in the world: name- ly, Gaylord Hockenberry, Charles Crawford, Thomas Gordon, John Lakeman, Horace Davis, Gerald Moore, and Clifton Tourtellotte. Across from Anna's boudoir we noticed a sign: "La Femme Par- faite, en Trois Parts." Beneath this were three doorways, and under each door a smaller sign. They read from left to right: "La Cuisinierf' "La Couturier," and "La Bonne." In the first room we found Frances Bowen preparing to serve a meal fit for a king. In the second we saw a Wardrobe fit for many queens, all made and displayed by Katherine Findeisen. And in the last we met a nurse, Marion Bennet, who showed us just what is the proper hygiene, diet, and living schedule for every- one from kings and queens down to Columbus Avenue babies. Under the broad dome of the Wom- an's Building a courtyard or garden spread itself, artistically filled with statues and beautiful n-ature dancers. Lydia Sa-ckrison was bossing the dancers in old-fashioned style. She didn't like the way Winnie Brooks stepped on it fthe grass I meanl. She wasn't satisfied with the form displayed by Meriam Perkins and Barb-ara Moody. The only ones that could really dance were Grace Severy and Inez Paine. The statues were arranged in pairs and quite appropriately, I thought. Irvine Read's statue was placed in front of one of Lady Diana Manners: Dorothy Pennington stood -before the greatest of all previous social lion- esses, Mary Astor: and Violet Did- rickson's plea sant physiognomy eclipsed that of Paderewski. While We were on our way to the reception Catherine asked: "Don't you think it is wonderful that Juck- ett should be governor of Califor- nia?" "Not by any means," I replied. "Why, who could be a more enthu- siastic governor of that state than he who once played the part with such fervor and fiery ardor that he practically burned the grease paint off his face? And who co-uld be so wise in his administration of that of- fice than he who, foreseeing his des- THE TECH TIGER tiny, risked a Whole string of red marks so that he could cross the con- tinent, survey the ground of his fu- ture activities, and plan ahead? I do wish, though," I pleaded, "that you would take as much interest in me as you do in Juckettf' She paused and then with a strange quiet smile replied, "I really shouldn't, because I am Walter Juck- ett's wife. He it was who sent me to the boat to meet you when he heard you were coming. He intend- ed that I wait until tonight though before telling you that we were en- gaged January 15, 1926, were mar- ried when he graduated from college, and have lived happily ever since in the Golden State. Isn't that news?" Oh, the infinite curse of human jealousy, that instead of being su- premely delighted to see the happi- ness of the one we love we bitterly, selfishly mourn our own loss! Walter! My blood boiled, it smoked, with furore! Juckett's! My brain exploded with mad envy! Wife! My heart crumbled to a mound of dust beneath the heel of the rival! I kissed her there in the midst of the crowd and departed. I am back in France now, alone, unseen, un- heard, content to live, silently, pa- tiently, awaiting my end. Your friend, Al M.

For this reason men are superior to monkeys. The undergraduates at Tech are su- perior to all monkeys and most men, so we hope that they will be glad of the opportunity to profit by our ex- perien-ce. With each day of our stay in Tech, our interest in her welfare has deep- ened. Now we feel that we know just what are the things to be done to make Tech the great school we want it to be. But now we must go and leave the work not only unfin- ished but practically unbegun. We are happy to feel, however, that our ideas will be heard and considered by both students and faculty. Our main idea is Concentration. Tech this fall has twenty-two clubs. Yet the thing which we consider most vital to our school spirit, a snap- py periodical, does not exist. Aside from classes and athletics, there are, we believe, just eight school organ- izations which are vital to school life and spirit. Concentration on these important points is what will bring the greatest success to the school, 40 and the greatest development to the individual student. First in importance we place a school publication. Only those who were in Tech about three years ago know the thrills of reading a real worthwhile periodical. To get the news from classes and clubs one was- nlt in, to learn the opinions of the various students and 'become ac- quainted with them thru their writ- ings, to read things by oneself or about oneself, these were pleasures eagerly looked forward to by all. The Pro Merito should 'be the or- ganization to undertake the produc- tion of a paper because quite natur- ally it contains the leaders in the school, boys and girls, organized into one group. These people, due to their success in scholarship, have the con- fidence of the school, the time to put in, and supposedly, the enthusiasm and brains necessary. The 3B's in the club will be already trained to assume the burden when the 3A's leave. Everyone from Freshman up should be allowed to work on the staff, but they should be forced to compete for their position and if the THE TECH TIGER A W Pro Merito is there to do the Work, they can refuse to accept all but the best. The school would probably find a monthly or bi-weekly publication much easier to produce and support than a weekly one. The subject mat- ter would be of better quality and of more value under these circum- slanccs, It would consist of a Forum, a literary section, a personal Writeup section, not omitting by any means the backbone of the paper, a joke section. We cannot attempt here to describe to you the pleasures of working on a paper. We leave you to discover them for yourselves. Then when we have a publication, the benefits proceeding from other activities will reach their full height. The efforts spent on several separated school organizations are partly wast- ed, while there is no bond between them to make them pull together. Gears in an automobile may re- volve with infinite speed and power but the car won't move till they are connected so that they work in uni- son. Clubs and pupils may work their heads off, but school spirit won't wake up until a school paper connects them, and they are many minds with a single object, Tech's Honor. Drama is second in importance for reasons which are self'-evident. Perhaps the Forum and Athenaeum should have more in common, since they are both literary clubs. The members of both are probably as sociable as they are literary, and fre- quent joint meetings of the two would doubtless stimulate both. Al- though the Athenaeum probably needs little improvement, it must be remarked that the Forum is not the effective machine for the production of leaders that it used to be. The old battle of wits, the struggle for su- premacy, and the good-natured criti- cism kindled a lively, fighting spirit that did much for Tech, and which now seems lacking. The Music Clubs are vital, al- though five Music clubs may be called more than plenty. The chief work of the 'Hi-Y, Nisi- maha, and Pro Merito is to make every Freshman an ideal Techite in spirit, leadership, character, and scholarship. May the Pro Merito, thru its Junior Scholarship Club, succeed in provid- ing the Freshmen with incentive for effort, close acquaintance and social contact among themselves and be- tween them and the Seniors, early experience in club leadership and re- sponsibility, and an opportunity to talk about and hear talked about ways and means of promoting Tech Honor and Tech Spirit. Those are the ends toward which we would work if we were now en- tering Tech instead of leaving. May a determined, whole hearted drive toward these ends bring the results both you and we desire. as -- .' Z A Qxtxfl A 917 A.

The class was late in organizing, 'but had the advantage of having for its faculty advisors, Miss Richmond, Miss Balcom, and Mr. Rogersg whence- forth, with helpful advice, a constitution was drawn up and class officers were elected as follows: Everett Miller . President Louis Terwilliger . Vice-President Dorothy Norton . . Secretary John Kane . . . . Treasurer Oliver Greenaway . . . Member-at-Large Evelyn Wright ...... Girls' Athletic Manager Theodore Raymond ..... Boys' Athletic Manager No important events took place during the Freshman year, but the class looked forward to the Junior year with high expectations. In October, 1924, elections took place again, and almost all the old ofiicers retained their positions, except that Eleanor Hadlock became vice presidentg Hazel Shirtcliff, Girls' Athletic Managerg and Ted Plumb, Boy-s' Athletic Manager. Soon after this, a committee to select the class colors was chosen. The colors adopted were blue and gold. Then the time came for our IIA social, which was very successful. During the Junior year, Wendell Lambe was elected to fill the vacancy caused by the departure of the former president, Everett Miller. The rest of the Junior year passed by with everyone anticipating the time when he would become a high and mighty Senior. Now the class is in the first half of its Senior year, and Mr. Aiken has succeeded Mr. Rogers, who has left Tech, as our faculty advisor. Election time has come and gone, and again there are but few changes. The officers elected to guide the destinies of the class through the half of the last year are as follows: Harold Deming ........ President Eleanor Hadlock . Vice-President Dorothy Norton . . . Secretary John Kane . . . . . Treasurer Donald Wackwitz . . . Member-at-Large Hazel Shirtcliif . . . . Girls' Athletic Manager Everett Sheldon ...... Boys' Athletic Manager The class is now looking forward with eagerness to the long awaited Junior Prom. With these able officers and the cooperation of every mem- ber of the class, a happy Senior year is assured. 43 H THE TECH TIGER Tau Delta Sigma Three rousing cheers for the Tau Delta Sigma! One of Tech's most popular clubs is the Drama Club. It is limited to twenty-five active mem- bers and it has three more who are on the business staff. However, it has a waiting list for those eligible for membership. Anyone on this list is privileged to come to meetings and to attend rehearsals. Every Monday the club holds its meetings in the Drama room the eighth and ninth per- iods. Generally a short play is given by a few of the members after the business part of the meeting is conducted. In this way, budding young actors and actresses are discovered. For the two semesters, the Drama Club has given the school play. It will be some time before either "Penrod" or "Pygmalion and Galatea" will be forgotten. Next year the club wants to give "Dulcy" in place of the usual operetta. With the wealth of material in the club, it will un- doubtedly be another play that will be written down in the history of the school as one of "the seven wonders." OFFICERS Charles Rivers ...... . .

The plot is woven around a sculptor who makes a beautiful statue in the likeness of his Wife. The statue is so perfect in every detail that Pygmalion laments the fact that he can not give it life. However, the gods are good and grant the statue, Galatea, life. This miracle occurs during the ab-sence of Pygn'1alion's wife Cynisca, who has gone to Athens for a short time. Pygmalion in his ecstacy forgets his wife and basks in the love that Galatea has for him, her creator. A newly rich couple come to the studio to buy the statue but are refused by Pygmalion. Chrysos is left in the studio alone when Galatea wanders in. There follows a very amusing scene, for this round red person is so diferent from anything that Galatea has seen in this strange world. Throughout the play, unusual sit- uations occur because of Galatea's ignorance of the world's ways. It is impossible for her to understand why she can not stay with Pygmalion although he seems to love her and she loves him. Cynisca returns and misunderstands the situation. In her anger, she calls down blindness on Pygmalion. This power had been granted her a long time ago when she was a nymph of Artimis. Pygmalion's sister and Galatea devise a plan whereby Galatea will pretend to be Cynisca and par- don Pygmalion, thus saving his life. Cynisca overhears the pardon and is glad, for her pride restrained her although her heart had urged her to forgive him. His sight recovered, Pygmalion spurns Galatea and she in heart- broken misery goes ba-ck to her former state. Too late, Pygmalion learns of her sacrifi-ceg he relents only to find that Galatea is once more senseless stone. CAST Pygmalion fan Athenian sculptorj . . . .

A. Following a supper, at which each club has a separate table, there is a short meeting, in which the business of the Affiliated group is taken care of. After this, the meeting breaks up into the respective school clubs for the discussion of problems of school and every day life. These discussions are both interesting and profitable for those who en- gage in them. OFFICERS J. Walter Juckett . ...... President William Enslin . ..... Vice-President Donald DeWolfe . . . .

A. for girls from the three high schools. lt is a branch of the national organization of Girl Reserves. The Springfield chapter is known as Nisimaha, an Indian word meaning "Comrade" Through this club it was hoped to abolish the clique feeling among the schools and put feeling on a friendly competitive basis. It is quite similar to the Hi-Y and it might even be said that it corresponds to that organization. However, Nisimaha is open to all girls who are will- ing to live up to its purpose which is "to promote honest scholarship, wholesome recreation, clean thinking, service to others, a spirit of friend- liness, and to uphold Christian standards." It is hoped to bring out through this club all that is best in the modern girl and disprove the theory that the average girl of today is empty-headed and worthless. OFFICERS Eleanor Hadlock ........

It is the purpose of the club to cultivate a better appreciation for literature. Each year the best poets and dramatists are chosen and studied in alternating years. Any girl elected to this club has received one of the highest honors obtainable in Tech. It should be the fond hope of every girl to become a memberg a goal for which she strives. The meetings are always followed by a so- cial time as they are generally held at the home of one of the members. Much of the success of the club is due to the unfailing devotion and hard work of the faculty advisor, Miss Mary Weaver. OFFICERS Katherine Findeisen . . . Catherine Barrett .

Ho-wever, during the course of the club's many years of existence, sociability has been slightly sub- ordinated to the more serious purpose of developing the art of speaking and debating. At the Forum meetings, which are held the first and third Mondays of each month, an after-dinner speech and debate are given by the various members. OFFICERS Harold Woodmansee ....

Members of the senior class who have maintained an average of at least eighty-five per cent in all subjects for their freshman and junior years automatically become members when their third year is reached. Tech leads in the number of members as well as actual activity. The present members have had the honor of organizing a junior so- ciety for better scholarship. It is exclusively for under classmen. Pupils eligible for this society are those who have been on the honor roll a certain number of times according to the class of which they are members. It has been a much discussed subject for some time but has never b-een put in effect until this year. OFFICERS Clifton Tourtellotte . . . . President Violet Didrickson . .

The meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month. The aim of Le Salon is to facilitate con- versation in French and to study the French language outside of class. An effort is made to acquaint the members with the customs and history of the French people. Le Salon is working on ga French play to be given in the Senior Assembly.

The idea is to give as many students as possible the stimulating and cultural influence of hearing good music, and the discipline of working with others in help- ing to make itg therefore, anyone is admitted who is far enough advanced to hold his own part in simple compositions. N0 attempt is made to build up a "crack" group, since that would mean eliminating the weaker players. Nevertheless, the orchestra usually contains a number of musicians who have already gained some public recognitiong and each year it has the honor of playing before civic organizations and clubs, as well as providing music for strictly school occasions, such as assemblies, plays, and class entertainments.

It is not, as its name might imply, limited to banjos. It is quite the opposite. Due to the fact that the Banjo Club had so few banjos this year, the club was seriously impaired in its work, which was intended to feature banjos. Nevertheless, thru the unfailing efforts of Mr. Reed, the club's advisor, the club sustained its excellent rep- utation in the city and elsewhere. When Mr. Gatchell was forced to go to California last winter, it looke-d pretty bad for the club, but Oliver Cer- boneschi, a Tech graduate, who thoroughly understood dance and concert orchestras, took charge and developed what we believe to be the best or- chestra of any sort that ever represented Tech. Due to the reputation that this orchestra established last spring, the Banjo Club started off with a bang this fall and has been traveling at a fast clip ever since. OFFICERS Howard F. Reed .....

The club was organized in the early part of last February. Mr. Ahern, who is the music supervisor in the Springfield schools, is a very able leader, and great benefit has been derived from his instruction. The first semester's Work was very successful considering the number of members, which was about twenty-five. In June the Girls' Club united with the Boys' Glee Club and sang at the graduation exercises for the classes of '25. The two clubs joined in singing carols at our last Christ- mas assembly. We Would like to hear them oftener since we heard that presentation. This semester the membership has increased, there being about one hundred members at present. Mr. Warner considers this club essential to "Tech," and school time is given for its meetings every Wednesday from eight thirty to nine. One Week is given for vocal instruction while the next Week there is a purely business meeting. OFFICERS Ruth Darby . .... . Prcsiflent Eleanor Johnson . . . View-Presirlent Betty Rowe . .

They had gone there with the express purpose of trying out for the operetta "The Bells of Beaujolaisf' At a given signal, a chord was struck, whereupon each fellow sang the note which had been assigned to him. The result was a melodious sound which reverberated throughout the hall. That's not all that that chord did. The waves of which it was com- posed found their way into the minds of certain fellows causing the forma- tion of what is now known as the Boys' Glee Cluib. After the meeting for the tryouts, these few fellows got together and decided that before such a club could be formed, an interest would first have to be created among the students. Soon after, the club was a reality. It made its first public appearance at the graduation exercises held at the Auditorium. This year the club has over a hundred members, each one doing his best to make Tech proud of having a Boys' Glee Club. The Glee Club holds weekly meetings on Wednesday morning from 8 :30 to 9:00. Under the personal supervision of Mr. Ahern, the club is looking forward to a very successful year. OFFICERS Edwin E. Vincent . . . . President Allen Belcher . . . . .

To qualify for this club, a student 'must maintain an average of "B" or over in German. The purpose of the German Club is to acquire a practical command of the German language and customs by means of story telling, games, plays, songs, and conversation. The regular club meetings are held once a month in the bungalow. In everything, the club follows the motto, "Practice makes perfect." OFFICERS Edward Milde .... Werner Schott . . .

The membership has increased to about forty. The aim of the club is to hold the meetings as if it were in Spain-as if the English language had never been heard of. The members hold the conversation in Spanish, sing Spanish songs, and play Spanish games. Membership is open to any pupil taking Spanish who maintains an aver- age of eighty percent or over. The fine progress of the club is due to the help of the club advisor, Miss Bolster. OFFICERS Eleanor Johnson . .... . President Violet Didrickson . . . . Vice-President Morgan Broadhead .

This institution was founded three years ago by Mr. Morgan, its worthy faculty advisor. The fellows and girls on the squad serve Tech in many ways. In fire drills the officers hustle the students out and away from the school in record time. At the Tech assemblies, they act as ushers. Between periods and during lunch time officers are stationed at different points throughout the build- ing and promote quick and orderly passing. Last but not least, the traffic squad offers its services on special occasions, such as the Tech Prom, at class dances, and at alumni reunions. Our Traffic Squad is always "Johnny on the spot."

These are words from an old Tech song. Our last football season was an example of what happens when the spirit is there to cheer Commerce on instead of Tech. A great deal might be said on this point, but we shall only say that the humiliation which we suffered at the Commerce game has resolved us that, win or lose, our cheering shall be the outstanding feature of all future interschool games. Tech was the aggressor throughout most of the Loomis game but lacked the final get-over. Loomis dug in its heels in the last period and crossed with the help of a long pass, scoring 7 to Tech's O. There are no apologies to be made about the Greenfield game. Tech lost there before a great team which beat Commerce 26-0 and Tech 21-0. We had high hopes in the Keene game. They were shattered by a blocked punt. A field goal followed, leaving the score 10-0 against Tech. Adams was the first to succumb to our offense. Tech completely outplayed their opponents, Captain Steve Willis carrying the ball over in the first few minutes after a series of straight line rushes. Donovan took the kick-off in the second period for an eighty yard ride to the cooler. Adams succeeded in modifying the score to 12-6 before the final whistle. The Tech-Central scrap was quite evenly contested and we won with a passing giame. The long heave was from Plumb to Donovan who frisked the ball up 30 yards and was stopped on their 3 yard line. He took it over on the next play, scoring the only points of the game. We'll never need to be reminded of the Commerce game. Commerce as host made a most enthusiastic and accommodating entertainer. Our boys enjoyed their singing so much that they found themselves humming Commerce songs when they should have "Hit the Line for Tech High." Never mind, we learn by our defeats. You can't fail to give our boys great credit though, for the rally in the last period when you consider the direction the hot air was blowing. Commerce deserved every bit of its 20-0 victory. The Holyoke game capped the High School careers of "Fat" Emery, "Big Chief" Thor, "Hug" Thompson, "Dinty'l Moore, "Sammy" Elliot, "Nes" Stelmakov, and Captain "Steve" The game was a real tragedy. Tech looked like the winner at the fialf gsfiliirh seven up, but those great Holyoke passes floored us for a score of 16-7 in the ast a . Donovan and Thompson, whose photographs are used to decorate this page, are quarterback and end respectively on the mythical All-Valley team. These two, along with Steve Willis Qtacklej and Ted Plumb fhalfbackl represent Tech on the All-City team. Our men fought hard and clean throughout the season. They are Tech's heroes and always will be. If they lose in the future it will not be because we have failed to treat them as such. Defeat is hard but not disgraceful. No disgrace is possible if "The spirit will be there to cheer Tech on," win or lose. 61 THE TECH TIGER Soccer Champs By losing only one game out of eight, Tech closed a very successful soccer season. Williston, with claims to New England prep school soccer title, was the only team to defeat the Orange and black combination. By defeating Commerce 4-1 and Central 1-0 and 5-3, they captured the Inter- school Championship. Coach Paul Miller, with a nucleus of five veterans from last year, de- veloped a powerful aggregation. The work of the forward line was the feature of the season, though credit must be given to the strong defense. Praise is due the fine leadership of Captain Leslie, who was the leading point scorer with seven goals to his credit. Kennedy was second with six. The outstanding stars were Leslie, Kennedy, Marsh, Allan, and Nims. Ker- ley, this year's crew captain proved his versatility by gaining a place on the so-ccer eleven and Hashed in the Tech-Central contest, serving two goals. Howe, Warner, and Joyce at half-back, although playing their first year for the Orange and Black, soon became a very valuable combination. Too much cannot be said of the work of Nims and Brooks at full-back. Both came through by kicking the ball out of danger as crucial moments. Whit- aker, at goal, a veteran from last year, played a stellar game throughout and is responsible for many of the opponents' low scores. Morehouse played consistently at outside right.

It was the Hrst Orange and Black Crew to conquer an op- ponent since the Champion eight of the Fall of 1923, which, because of the lack of boats, rowed four miles to its opponents' two, to win. The season started with practically a green crew and was developed into a powerful eight by the hard work of Coach "Johnny" Joyce and Cox Barlow. A new stroke was introduced which was mu-ch snappier and more quickly recovered at the finishg that is to say, the Tech eight made two short snappy strokes to the opponent's one long one. This stroke proved successful because the men on the crew were physically adapted to a fast short stroke. Tech met Vocational as its opponent in the Springfield Boat Club Regatta and snatched the race out of the Vocational Crew's hands in a quarter mile finish which was dazzling. The second meet was for the Interschool Championship, with our old rivals, Vocational, as our big adversary. Commerce and Central had en- tries but were out of the competition before the race was half over. The race started with a bang, Vocational going into the lead by a scant five feet. At the quarter mile, Tech crawled up three feet, at the half mile the crews were on even terms, each one working smoothly and evenly. Steadily the Orange and Black Crew pulled away from the Vocs. The strokes became faster and more sharp. This told on the Vocational Crew, and the Orange and Black crossed the line two and one half lengths ahead, giving Tech the Interschool Title for 1925. The line-up of the Crew: Bow: Miller 3. Lotz 5. Ettling 7. Krause 2. Cross 4. Blodgett 6. Kerley-Capt. Stroke: Kosok Coxswain: Barlow 63 THE TECH TIGER Girls, Hockey The Girls' Hockey team of 1925 had a very discouraging season, due to the fact that there were only three veterans around whom a team could be moulded. The inexperience of the players combined with the fact that a new system was being started handicapped the team. PLAYERS Helen Wilcutt Marion Bennett Orelle Scott Bergoohie Juskalian Grace West Edwina Lawrence Eva Yelinek Lydia Sackrinson Florence Farnsworth Bernice Cornell Helen Dyba Alberta Lewis Olive Calverly Marie Hartwick Dorothy Fillion 64 THE' TECH TIGER Rifle Club The Tech Rifle Club believes in preparation. The 45 members of the club have been practising twice weekly since September at the indoor rifle range near the forge shop. If practise really makes perfect, then the team which they' form in February, and which begins at that time to shoot in competition with other valley high schools, will surely be invincible. The captain is not chosen until the season begins. He will probably be one of the men now holding the highest scores. These are Harry Clarage and Alexander Lewis. Lorenz Lotz is one of the highest scorers, but is graduating in January. OFFICERS Edson Shock . . . . . Faculty Advisor Alexander Lewis . . . Secretary Earnest Lind . . . . . Range Master John Rucinsky . . Asst. Range Master G5 THE TECH TIGER Basketball We couldn't print our book without a picture of this most promising team. The fact that we still have the veteran players, Capt. Bob Christo- fori, Nestor Stelmakov, and Wilfred Jaques as guardsg with Donovan and Slate as forwards, justifies great expectations. Hooker, our center, may also be classed as a veteran because of his great experience in basketball outside. The team has already played a schedule game with Williamstown and a practice game with Tech Alumni. Williamstown was beaten 53-17. Take a look at the Alumni line-up, you old-timers, and marvel that they only beat us 32-21. They had Charlie Mace from Clark School, N. H., and Harold Hoag of Vermont as forwards, and they had Phil Page of Penn State, center, with Dick Converse of Worcester Tech and Harry Slate, formerly of Penn State, as guards. Coach Walmer plans to use the two-team system in most of his games this winter, using one squad for one period and then substituting the other five. These teams are: FIRST SQUAD SECOND SQUAD Donovan .......................................,.. ....,......, F orward ,.,,,,,,,,, . ,.,,,,,,,..,,,,,,,,,,,, P, Stelmakov Slate ................,...,,....,,..,. .........,,.

The power and strength that she gives To the sons who uphold and defend her Shall be wielded to show that she lives. Can her spirit ever die, While Techites fight and all unite To honor Tech High? When the heroes who fought in her name Have departed and left her behind them, And thousands have all done the same, Then the memories that remain Shall urge us to press ever on Advancing the standards she gave us Till all those opposing are gone: And we proudly shout the wordg Tech High has come, Tech High has seen, Tech High has conquered.
