' For having made us realize that Hawaii is more than the home of Dole pineapple juice. For bringing that land of laughter, music, and play a little nearer. For having made us wonder why we are so somber. For your interest in Technical as shown by your presence as chaperone at 4'Cactus and Campusn, your pres- ence at basketball games, your pres- ence at our january Prom, your acceptance of an honorary member- ship in Hi-Y. For having proved in your own person that Hawaians are even more charming and gay than we had supposed. For letting us know such a grand Northwesterner as you. For your boundless energy, your interest in everything and everyone. For having given us word-pictures of your glacier-capped mountains, of Howers growing in the snow, of the broad waters of Pudget Sound. For your support of Technical by attending all P.T.A. meetings, chaperoning our annual operetta, "Cactus and Campus", going to Tech games, accepting an honorary membership in Hi-Y, and by lead- ing the Girls' Bowling Team this last semester. For the profitable and pleasant hours we had in your classroom. flflflww-7'f"'w' Va??'ffZf'V,WfQwZ?,5f4ff VVVZQV ,UWM 'VQVVVVQVVV MVVZVVVV VVVZZY' ' VV VVVfy:fV VVVVVVQ VV V VW' 'V V' ,, MVVVV 'VVVV ,M I WWWVV, X nm, VV V VVVVVV V Vfj'VVVVVVQVVVVVf 9 f " W ' VVVV V'VVVf VVVWV 'VV4 A V VU VV ' WAV VV V V V VV V V W V V V?

With the motors roaring and the spectators in a perpetual state of expectancy, we hear in the distance the warning vibration of Phil Brown's customary police escort which announces the late arrival of that man-about-town joe Garvey who, with a large crew and several passengers, is about to take off on a trip to Paris to see the World's Fair and attempt to meet some of his former classmates. As Engineer Howard McGill opens the gates of the Western Mass. Airport, owned and operated by Lawrence Cleary, we see that dapper young gentle- man joe step out of the taxi to the drone of Phil Roux's voice, demand- ing, f'Fare, pleasen. Amidst the cheers of the crowd joe finds his way to the plane and is greeted by the attractive air hostess Pat Sullivan. After bidding farewell to his wife, the ex-actress Pricilla Drumm, he enters the Flying Hotel, piloted by Charles Prouty, with handsome Bob Heel as a co-pilot. Then is heard the sound of the door closing and the roar of the plane as it takes off, headed out toward the deep blue sea. On board this marvel of modern times, we find Marion York examin- ing her perfected 1959 fashion plates. As john Skowren peers over her shoulder, he finds to his amazement that they are made of spun glass, and that they are to be modeled by Ann Oliveri, jane Flint, and Anne Yule at the exposition. What next in fashions! Norman Tallent is seen in the rear of the ship mixing chemicals to make the fountain of youth a reality, but he is doubtful as to whether or not Holman Spence may have found the right combination first. Alma Okrongley is occupied reading Charlie Robinson's book on "How to Make Friends and Keep Them". Bobbie Hollister enjoys practicing her famed golf swing, although not on a course, due to Austin Weber,s construction of a yo-yo golf ball which has the magnetic power of drawing the ball back to the tee. As the plane soars over the ocean, Al Denis, radio operator, contacts the Pyne 41 Yacht, to arrange a meeting at Russell Davis's refueling station in mid-ocean. After a few hours we reach this destination and transfer to the yacht. Boarding it we are greeted by the self-centered captain Earl Bemis, jr. who, when he smiles, displays Dr. joe Carmody's latest creation of lemon flavored false teeth. We then entered the Henry Room to enjoy cocktails. To our amazement we find the steward to be none other than our old pal Roy Miller. Retiring to our staterooms, which are kept faultlessly clean by jean Wetmore, we dress for dinner. This accomplished, we stroll around deck until we hear the dinner bell chime with Dave Soffran on the musical end of it. Entering the dining hall we are greeted by the rocking rhythm of Ken Munyon and his Rock Horse Orchestra. The food is furnished by Leslie Streeter, "game warden" who has confiscated the birds from Art Huse, an unfortunate hunter who went in for target practice out of season, and is prepaid by Richard Small and served by Frances Donnelen, Norma Midwood, and Theresa Restano. As we are enjoy- ing our dinner, Riley Aiken entertains with his corny trumpet, after which Grace Coughter appears crooning a sentimental song in Dorr Exford's ear, which is slightly dilapidated, due to various skirmishes in the boxing ring. Bobbie fBargainj Price does an extra-ordinary shawl dance with her shadow until she trips over the oversized feet of Billy Thomas, who, from the effects of his first cocktail, has been lying on the floor unnoticed. After this superb entertainment our hostess Shirley Pyne leads us to the upper deck where each guest indulges in his own conception of a good time. ' The next morning we take leave of the yacht and board ou p ain en route to "Gay Paree" accompanied by our hostess, her 'l on our final sky journey we experience ce Savior and r lane E once ag guests, and entertainers.

Near the end of our first semester it appeared that some of our members had terpischorean aspirations. ln the Christmas issue of 'fTech News" there was a warning, which in effect said, "No ballet or tap dancing in the corridors!" As another wintry morning broke, we found ourselves no longer the mightiest group in Tech. Another class mightier than we had started up the path in our footsteps. We were 10 A,s. At last we were organized as all good and respectable classes are. Our honorable officers were: president, Earl Peterson, vice-president, Joyce Klingg secretary, Thomas Landers, and treasurer, Gordon Neylon. Our much-needed class advisers, Miss Kelley and Mr. Francis, selected a Constitution committee. When that task was finished, our fourteen able classmates suffered from splitting headaches. the boys started off successfully by defeating the 10 B ln sports, freshmen in inter-class basketball. In April, delegates were selected from each 10A home room to serve on the executive board. Not until April 29th did we, in our timid way, venture forth into ociety 'by holding our first class social.

A mg April 24, 1939 Dear Bill, Yes, I agree with you that girls, sports do not attract the dear public the way your program of sports does. 8,000 people do not come out to watch us on Columbus Day or any other day for that matter, nor do we have gate receipts which help to swell that all important S.A. fund. Neither do we have the fanfare of bands and rallies. We leave all that to you, and we enjoy it as much as you do. But surely you who find this age of technocracy so exciting, recognize that the race is not always to the swift or powerful. Dribbling a hockey ball or shooting a goal in soccer, requires as much technique as throwing a forward pass, and is every bit as thrilling. Have you ever scooped a hockey ball over the stick of a defending half-back? Have you ever smashed the shuttlecock over a badminton net to score a point? Or have you had the satisfaction of scoring a "spare" or a 'istrikew in bowling? These are some of the joys of our athletic program. You being male will be impressed with these figures. About 2001, of our Technical girls came out for after-school sports this year. Each afternoon you could have found on ,the average of 30 girls in the Girls' Gym or at Smith,s Bowling Alley or at one of the city parks. Remember your nursery rimes, in particular the alphabet ones, "A is for appleu? VVell, M is for Monday and Basketball, Tuesday for Dancing, Wednesday for Tennis, Thursday for Badminton or Ping- pong, and Friday for Bowling Club. When my grandmother was a girl in the country, folks used to say you couldn't really know a person until you had sumrnered and wintered with him and bought butter of him. Here at Tech we should know the boy-friend, for we see him in classes, we dance with him, and this Winter we intrigued him into playing badminton, ping-pong, and bowling with us. You should have seen Ruth johnson and Shirley Ann Speer scoring strikes in bowling, or Barbara Gordon and Barbara Redfield, and other inseparables holding up an end of the pin-pong table together. Yes, Go-ed sports have proved themselves most popular at Tech. By the way, will you double with me when tennis comes around? Yours for Technical, Marion ,pi 'U At wa.. . we .

It came without warning to central New England, as the tropical storm had supposedly headed out to sea. After storm warnings, on the coast, had been taken down, this freak wind suddenly veered and headed for central New England. Following a torrential downpour of rain it caused floods, and more damage was done than had ever occurred in this section. Property on highlands as well as in the river valleys fell under the onslaught of this powerful force of destruction which paid no heed to property or human life. After the wind had subsided, I went to the home of my sister. Her husband who is a sergeant in the National Guard had just got word to report to the Armory as quickly as possible. This was about 6.30, so I went home and changed clothes and proceeded to the Armory. When we reached there, only a few men had arrived. There were a few army trucks in the basement of the Armory, and these were im- mediately pressed into service in picking up guardsmen in the out- lying districts. At 10.30 that night the Service Company, in spite of all traffic obstructions, was completely mobilized. They were about the first company to be completely mobilized. The real reason that the National Guards were called out was not because of the hurricane or flood directly. Sheriff Manning issued the call to mobilize so that the National Guards could give assistance in the evacuation of York Street Jail. After much careful preparation this was done. The prisoners, without a single mishap, were removed to one of the gymnasiums at the Springheld College where they were guarded very closely by the National Guards until York Street jail could be reoccupied. As the troops were put under the authority of the local police, they helped in many ways. In the downtown area they were immediately called to direct traffic and to keep cars from going into the flooded areas. This could never have been done without the assistance from some source other than the police. National Guardsmen were posted at the bridges over the river and were not allowed to let vehicles pass over them without an emergency pass. They were also posted in the flooded areas to watch for looters of homes which had been evacuated. On Wednesday night the basement of the Armory started to Hood because of the sewers backing up. After about an hour's sleep I was awakened at 6.00 a.m. when it became necessary to remove the supplies from the basement as the water at that time was above the knees. Several of us donned hip boots and started to take supplies upstairs. We went first to the vault where the ammunition is kept and took the ammunition to higher and dry ground. We then proceeded to bring other supplies from the basement. Company A, which has its locker rooms in the basement, was out on duty at the time and so it was necessary to break the glass in several of the lockers to get their clothes. On Wednesday night the Armory was put on an emergency status. Sentries were posted in and about the building. It was their duty to see that there were no loiterers and to keep curious people from entering the building. At this time National Guardsmen were not allowed to leave without a pass. The next morning as the water was so high in the basement and because of unsanitary conditions the officers in charge decided to move the headquarters. Arrangements were made, and headquarters were immediately established at the Municipal Auditorium. Cots were set up in the basement of the Auditorium for the Guardsmen, and the officers made their offices upstairs and their sleeping quarters were the back aisle of the balcony. It was the Service Company's job to see that the temporary head- quarters were kept clean. Curious people were not allowed to loiter, and traffic was kept off Broadway between Elm and Pynchon streets. Thursday night a convoy of 41 trucks carrying cots and blankets arrived after an eighteen hour trip through Rhode Island and Con- necticut from Natick, Massachusetts. Several loaded trucks immediately went to the local refugee camps and supplied their needs. All night long was spent in distributing cots and blankets. On Friday trucks were sent to the Western Massachusetts towns of Pittsfield, North Adams, Adams, Greenfield, Hadley, South Hadley, Northampton, Westfield, Holyoke, Ware, and Bondsville. These towns received, on an average, about two or three hundred cots and Hve or six hundred blankets. The towns of Ware and Adams received typhoid serum, because of a threat of an epidemic of typhoid fever. On Friday night tainted food was found in this area, and after much investigation, it was found to be entering this state from Connecticut. The roads on the state line were immediately closed to trucks carrying perishables. On Saturday night two trucks went to the bridge over the Chicopee River, at Indian Orchard and Ludlow, to pick up some milk to bring to a local dealer. As the bridge had several cracks all the way across, it was declared unsafe. lt was then our duty to carry the milk over the bridge by hand. This job took a couple of hours as we made two trips. When we got back it was about 2.30 and we went to bed. On Sunday the crest of the Hood had been reached, and from then on it receded very rapidly. Several companies were dismissed, but the Service Company remained on duty. When the rivers in Western Massachusetts had receded sufliciently, the long tedious job of picking up supplies started. This job took ten days in itself. When these supplies were collected they were returned to the Quartermaster Depot at Natick, Massachusetts where every article was counted and checked. It was suprising to note that only a few hundred cots and blankets were missing from this area as com- pared to a few thousand in the Hood of 1936. After this job of returning the supplies was finished, the company was dismissed from duty, and the Hood of 1938 was officially over and had passed into history. Ralph W.

Phyllis Watson ARE YOU HURRRICANE-WISE? See how many of these questions you can answer without referring to next page, for the answers. Answer True or False. Count 10 points for each that is right. If you make 100, you are a super-hurricane. 1. The seisrnograph at New York City recorded the waves pounding on the Long Island and Connecticut Shores. 2. Hurricane is just another name for a cyclone, a typhoon. 3. The wind at times blew at over 150 miles an hour. 4. As regards loss of life, the hurri- cane was the worst in history. 5. The high waves were partly due to the fact that the cyclone coin- cided with the high tide. 6. The hurricane did not curve off over the sea as expected because of a high pressure area over the North Atlantic. 7. Hurricanes have their origin among the islands to the east of Florida. 8. The rain-soaked ground of New England added somewhat to the force of this hurricane. 9. The Government weather bu- reaus prepared the people of New England for this storm. 10. These storms are caused by the sun's crossing the equinoctial line. TERRIFYING DISASTER FOR A POULTRYMAN One afternoon in September I was out in the poultry range sitting in our cabin waiting for the rain to cease. When I thought the rain had stopped, I started to feed the chickens. A puff of wind blew a shelter a few feet. My father started to peg down the shelters. The wind increased, I ran to get more pegs. While my father was holding down one shelter, another flew on top of him. The hired man and I ran to take it off. The wind's fury increased, shelters were sailing over fences, flying through the air, and breaking up like kindling wood. This left the chickens out in the open with the heavy rain. beating down upon them. Poor, helpless, little chickens, they crowded in groups and looked so puzzled. Shelters fell on top of them, crushing some, ripping others open, and killing still others outright. Hundreds of chickens were dying before our eyes, and we could do nothing about it. When we took stock the next morning, we counted one thousand chickens dead, hundreds that were bruised, forty brand new shelters wrecked, and the roofs of two coops torn off, and one new brooder coop blown to pieces. Nicholas De Pinto Workshop 314 FATE On the day of the hurricane, I had to stay after school. It was three- thirty before I left and went down to Main Street. Luckily, I thought at the time, a Belmont Avenue -trolly car hove into sight and I jumped on board. It was one of the oldest on the line, but I didn't think much about that because just then a gust of wind came with a mighty howl. The trolly car swayed, and threw me to the back of the car. There I stayed. Then the wind descended with all its fury, so that when we reached the bottom of Locust Street we could hardly move. Suddenly there was a r-r-rip, a crash, and a scream! And while I watched, petri- fied with fear, the, whole middle section of the car caved in under the smashing weight of a huge elm. If the car had not swayed, when I first got on, and thrown me to the rear, I might not now be telling you this tale. Sidney Law, A Workshop 25 AVENGED? The headstrong, relentless hurri- cane was at its height, and I, defense- less against toppling trees and raging rain, was calmly peddling magazines. For four hours I ladled out c'Liberty's" from the porridge of a bag slung over my "bike", of little use as a means of travel. ' After dodging trees successfully, CI missed all but twob, I stopped to catch the breath that I had lost hours ago. I nonchalantly stepped on the brakes, skidded between some debris, and came to roost, miraculously right side up, with one foot on the running board of a car. As this position was restful, I lingered for awhile, counting the giant elms as the gods smote them like ten-pins, in spares and strikes. The more trees that fell, the cockier I got. Imagine, a boy like me braving the elements when huge trees were being uprooted! Then a tree fifty feet away wavered. F ascinated, I watched the seventy-first tree battle against the enemy. Suddenly, a rend- ing crash blotted out everything. I calmly got up, tested my limbs, felt for the eight fingers in my mittens, and then I saw the car on which I had been resting a few moments be- fore. A tree behind me was now using it for the same purpose. Then a thought struck me. The tree had fallen against the wind! Had it finally avenged itself for the gash this same car had inflicted upon it the year before? Edmund H. Merz, Workshop 25 ANSWERS to HURRICANE QUIZ 1. True. The lines on the seismo- graph appeared exactly as if there had been an earthquake in the vicinity. 2. True. In different oceans this pheomenon is called by different names. The scientific name is Trop- ical Cyclone. 3. True. The Blue Hill Meteor- ological Observatory near Boston suc- cessfully recorded that the wind was blowing at a speed of 186 miles an hour. 4. False. As regards loss of life it stands fourth, but in loss of property it stands first. 5. True. Also as the moon was only 28 hours from new, the tide was higher than average that afternoon. 6. True. Also it swept over Central New England because this region was a low pressure area at the time. 7. False. They form near the equator, in the doldrums, where the air is unstable. 8. True. The humid air undoubt- edly sustained it and also increased its force, so that it passed north in 4 or 5 hours. Miami usually has a maximum tempest for 12 hours. 9. False. The New York Weather Bureau at 3 and the Boston Weather Bureau at 3:30 issued mild warnings, but the unchained wind and sea were the first information that most people had. - 10. False. They are caused by layers of cold air superimposed on layers of warm air and have nothing to do with the equinox. INTEHEETINE F' E ND, D SNADS, 564. gag? 7. EMT?
