N Let us now praise famous men Even the artificer and the worlemaster. All these put their trust in their hands And without these shall not a city be inhabited, For these maintain the fabric of the world." America, two thousand years later, is the creation of pioneers who worked with their hands. George Washington was a hard-working sur- veyorg Beniamin Franklin was a journeyman printer and an inventorg Abraham Lincoln split rails, built and worked on flatboats. That these men worked with their hands no doubt contributed to their hard practical sense In a recent magazine the president of General Motors Corporation said lf I were twenty one l would work with my hands The best man is one who combines the learning of books with the learning which comes from doing things with the hands Technical High School recognizes the importance of handwork in our inheritance and future and offers the boys courses in drafting shopwork and design For the girls there is sewing art and cooking Everyone in this school at one time or another feels the exhiliration that comes only when the hands have created what the mind has dictated ln presenting the Tech Tiger of l94O we pay tribute to the beauty and satisfaction of handwork experienced in our classes at Technical High School .R Nw ms em 'ms .,, ,Q -. Q, To Miss Nellie Brooks Hill, who is equal parts mathematics, nonsense, and common sense, this yearboolc is gratefully dedicated. When l came to Springfield in 1912 and became head of the Mathematics Department of the Technical High School l found an excellent group of teachers in that department One of these teachers was Miss Nellie B Hill My first favorable impression of Miss Hill was confirmed and strengthened through many succeeding years of association with her Miss Hill was not only an exceptional teacher of mathematics she was also a sympathetic teacher of boys and girls Her genuine Interest in pupils extended beyond the classroom into their extra curricular and out of school activities Miss Hill was an untrrrng worlcer She gave unsparmgly of her time and ability to assist pupils to over come their difficulties and to inspire them to realize their best possibilities Hundreds of former Tech boys and girls will always remember her with deep appreciation of all that she meant to them as a teacher and as a friend STILL OURS Who greeted green freshmen by dozen or score? Who never was lcnown to let one feel a bore? Who but Miss Hill? Whose three firm initials adorned all the passes Of each lad and lassie who sat in her classes? Please note: N.B.H. Who thought that mathematics was iust pure adven- ture? Who never permitted a problem to bench her? l refer to Miss Hill. Who expected the best of each girl and each boy? And greeted their progress with plaudits of ioy? Our teacher, Miss Hill. Whose eyes blazed with fire at wilful transgression, But softened with kindness at proper confession7 Whose eyes but Mass Hill s7 Who as midterm came round proved herself a good scout By giving each laggard the benefit of doubt7 Understanding Miss Hill Who stood by her pupils in moments of need7 Who rushed to their rescue at top of her speed7 lspealc of Miss Hill Whose X minus Y equalled patience untold7 Whose square root of friendship gave quotient of gold7 Our loyal Miss H II Who as long as she lives holds a place in our hearts7 Who IS ours now and always our friend in these parts7 Nellie Broolcs H II Who when earth and the stars have all fallen to dust Will still pull for us somewhere beyond the earth s crust7 Our faithful Mass Hill Elizabeth S Whitehouse Freshman in algebra thirty years ago Harry B Marsh Assistant Superintendent of Schools The story of Miss Hill s ancestors reads lilce a chapter from early New England history One Peter Hill the first of the line settled with his son Roger In Biddeford Marne near the mouth of the Saco River Of Rogers eight children a son Captain ohn Hill won fame around 1689 as an lndlan fighter In King Wll llam s Wars Another ancestor ohn Curtis was an ardent Abolitlonlst and Intimate friend of William Lloyd Garrison being with him at the time the mob attempted to talce Garrison s life Another frlend of this ohn Curtis was the orator and reformer Wendell Phillips who wrote of him in the inscription on his tombstone Unlilce most men he ohn Curtis was more enthusiastic in the welcoming of all new truth as he advanced in age Miss Hull s father was a captain in the days of clipper ships She remembers going with him as o child on a voyage from Gloucester to Liverpool Original land proprietors farmers, Assemblymen lndian fighters soldiers in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars a Western Methodist circuit rider a sea captain such were the parts played by Miss Hill S ancestors in early New England history On the flyleaf of a little blaclc noteboolf in which Mlss Hill s mother has traced rn her fine Spencerian handwriting the twenty two lines from which the Htl! family is descended are these words Let us thanlc od for having given us such ancestors Such ancestors indeed nxxx fmt ,fffgi 1,91 . . an C 4, , t D c ' - ' t oc .I I ..

All of the students had settled down to study, except for a group in the far corner. Miss Hill, singling outa boy whose position was not the orthodox one for study, inquired, "John, lust what are you doing?" I "No-o-thing," muttered John as he sat up and reached for his boolcs. "Well, be sure you do it very well," was her quiclc advice. He had been a very ambitious student having finished what was then a four-year course in three years at Technical. Several years later he came baclc to pay his respects to his former teachers. Seeking out Miss Madge Richmond, at that time head of the mathematics department he tried to tell her what she as a teacher had done for him. Ar the end of a very eloquent speech he asserted And there is another teacher here who did a lot for me That teacher is Miss Richmond He had crossed our names but remembered our faces and personalities explained Miss Hill her eyes a twinlcle as she told about this left handed compliment to herself Two teachers were having tea with Miss Hill at her home on St ames Ave not so long ago and much of the tallc was about Technical What l lilce about Technical said one of them is that it is a school in which every pupil can find something he lllfes Yes if It s only tatting replied MISS Hill There was who was such a trial to me She would not conform to any of our rules l never worlced harder with a girl than l did with her but when she left my room at the end of the year l felt l had done nothing for her One day meeting her in the corridor l as e if she was still tattrng Yes and l want to lcnow howto do the double stitch Drop in some afternoon and l II show you She learned the stitch very quiclcly Miss Hill added and to this day sends me a card every Christmas A curtain stirs A hand moves Another person roms the first lt is evident that the ladies inside that substantial white house in the village of Hanover Mass are much interested in some one in the street The cause of this discreet flutter is a slender, young girl whois going to college lust lilce any man Salces alive if she isn t out in the street with all those railroad men loolcing in their glass and waving her arms so unladylilce The Hanover ladies would not understand even rf they were told the facts The girl in question has lust finished a course in surveying in Boston Univeristy where she had talcen all of the mathematics the college offers Now she rs having a first chance to put that lcnowledge to practical use The men have let her place their surveyor s transit and level It Now she s sighting and signaling to them where to place the red markers for the new railroad So unladylil4e ln summing up the qualities of Miss Hill that are outstand ing, you will naturally note her generous worlc with the slow pupil as well as her marlced success with the boy who is going to college You will find also that she is a great favorite with her fellow teachers Not only is she admired by them for her unusual ability as a teacher but She is enloyed because of her kindly wit and ready reloinder lt is Miss Hill who supplies the anecdote or recites the ap proprrate poem or gives an apt quotation or even tells the iolce often on herself that enlivens any group of teachers in which she finds herself Madge E Richmond Mathematics Department 1911 1936 -xxx Qcxngcx qw 1,91 fffi ,fy ,1 0 rd' - if y Ho , ,--f 0 .

' ' ' d h orner with the feeling only a fresh- what little spirit he has, and slowly creeps aroun t e c , man can lcnow, to a large hall, where other individuals lilce himself are entering. These two to four hundred people are none other than freshmen, the class of january, 1940. For one whole semester, this Freshman class sat in the background and were lcidded about being fres hmen. Then came February, and we were 10 s. Right away we lost no time in getting started toward being one of the most active classes to graduate from Tech High. iiow- A nominating committee composed of one person from each room was piclced. Fo ing this came the elections of the class officers. The returns showed that we had elected: President, Bob Keefe, Vice-President, Connie Bray, Secretary, Eleanor Hoffbauer, Treas- urer, Wilbert Eddy. Again one person from each 10A home room was chosen to serve on the class con- stitution committee, upon which the class as a whole voted. Our class officers chosen, our class constitution drawn up, our class now toolc over the responsibilities of our first class dance. This dance was given the name "Spanish Swirl" and was held in the afternoon of December 8, 1937, in the boys' gym. Music was furnished by Dale Lewis and his orchestra. The Spanish theme was carried out by the decorations of colorfully painted pine cones strung around the gym. The orchestra was seated in a small garden surrounded by a small white fence on which more pine cones were strung. This was but a beginning of a series of colorful and successful class dances, which this class was to put on. - Junior Year a weelc-end near the end of january, we became iuniors. Our first step was to elect a president to Fill the vacancy left because of Bob Keefeis resignation. Those nomin- ated were john Fleming, Warren Freeman, William Nordstrom and Bill King. When all ballots were counted and tallied, we found that our newly elected president was Bill King. With our new president we ventured towards our second class dance. On May 13, 1938, "Under The Big Top" was held in the boys' gym. Ir was a great success. The following day, May 14, the Pro Merito Convention was held at Shelburne Falls. Nothing of great importance happened after that until at last we were "set free" for a welcome and much needed summer vacation. After We returned the following September, little realizing what was to come in the near future. On September 21, we witnessed the worst catastrophe that ever happened in New England. The hurricane and flood gave us an unexpected two-day vacation. On Oct. 8, the Pro Merito convention was held in Williamsburg. Soon after that, our plans for our third class dance got under way On Nov 18 . . , we presented the "Junior Jubilee" Again we lived up to the reputati h d on we a as a class that was sure to put on a successful dance Our class was distinguished a few weelcs later wh B b K f en o ee e was elected president of the Motion Picture Appreciation Club S f . oon a ter that William Nordstrom was ele t d president fth S d ' ce vice- o e tu ent C-ouncil. Senior Year e became seniors, the goal to which we had all aspired. Again we entered into a political campaign. When everything quieted down, we found ourselves still cap- tained by Bill King with Marcella Lynch as first-mate, Eleanor Hoffbauer re-elected secre- tary, and Wilbert Eddy still holding the money. Already our plans were under way for our first dance as seniors. The great event toolf place on May 12. Ar this shindig our class banner was displayed for the first time. led Jarrett and his orchestra furnished the music. Again distinction was brought to our class. This time it was in the form of Bill Nordstrom who was ele t d d c e presi ent of Hi-Y, vice-president of W. M. L. S. P., editor of TECH NEWS, and chief of the Student Patrol. Ar last w After , gain, t is time we came baclc as real, honest-to-goodness dignified 3? seniors. It wasn't long before, to show ourselves off, we were sporting orange and blaclc arm bands. Plans immediately got under way for our lost class dance. The affair toolc place on Nov. 3, opening the social calendar of the year. Connie Bray, as chairman, piloted the dance successfully. Next came the choosing of the committee for our two most important social events-namely the Senior Prom and Banquet. Bob Keefe was chosen to head the Prom Committee with Bill Nordstrom in charge of the Banquet committee. Bob Foster was chosen toastmaster for the Banquet. Before our last Christmas vacation, the class document Committees were formed. They were as follows:- Class WillNBob Keefe, Met Fox and Charles Mahoney. Class Ballot-Bill King and Leona Downer. Class Prophecyslfleanor l"loffbauer, John Fleming and Phyllis jones. Class l'listoryNDoris Miller, Bob l"lallan and Marcella Lynch. Now we are at the stage of the h game w ere we begin to realize that our happy school days are too rapidly coming to a close. We be in t l' d . ? . . . g o rea ize that what we are about to elve into life is very complicated Th h , . ere is not ing left for us to do but worlc, and hope. May we all be as successful as individuals as we have been as a class another summer vacation we returned a h Signed Doris Miller Marcella Lynch Bob Hallam ? s- Mya!!!-1 CLASS PROPHECY The Prophecy of The Class of january, 1940 . . . . H There was a great deal of buzzing and excited comment going on in Tech, especia y in this januaryis graduating class, and there was good cause for it too, for the combined science department, with Mr. Aiken as the inventor, had developed to completion a most astounding machine, a Timosphere. This amazing contraption was a gigantic top in which one could spin himself into the future any number of years he might choose. Our class advisers and two student representatives decided to spin into the future. Mr. Kiley also accompanied us because he was most anxious to see how some of his mischie- vous charges had come out. Everything was ready and with Mr. Aiken at the controls we set out. Suddenly with a great whirring sound we were off, spinning into the future to the year 1950. Soon in what seemed only the length of a class period we had stopped spinning and everyone held his breath with awed expectancy as Mr. Aiken opened the door on Springfield in the year 1950. We immediately recognized our surroundings as Court Square, for the good old Municipal Tower was still standing. It was a little before four o'clock and as we started down Main street we saw the second shift of policemen with our old classmate, now Captain Walt Riegal, leading. ln the cortege were officers james Moynihan, Bernard Fritsch, and George Straight, all with the traditional flat foot walk. The old city was vaguely familiar and on reaching the site of the old Springfield Public Market we saw in its place, in a blaze of lights, Wh-alen's Exclusive Shop for Womeg. As we contemplated entering, a swanky 1950 limousine pulled up to the curb and ostan ' ' ' ' ' ' d d ened the door allowing Smith, chauffeur in a sleek-fitting uniform, iumpe out an op G l. vallee Mary Frentzos, Peggy johnson, and Shirley Merry, the cream of Spring- race a , field debutantes, all chattering like a covy of magpies about what they were going to wear ' ' j h Mur h and that night, to get out. As we walked into this spacious shop we saw o n p y Walter St. john, floorwalkers, in the employ of T. Whalen, with white carnations showing, smiling and beaming while catering to the whims ol' rich old dowagers. ln one salon was Kay Kenney, a leading stylist, giving a fashion show with the glamorous models Connie Bray, Meverett Fox, and Phyllis jones. Feeling pangs of hunger we left in search of food. At the front of the store, we stopped a tall individual on stilts, advertising the Rendezvous owned by a well known spaghetti strangler, Flemington Cocchi. l'le was john McClean, and we wondered why he needed the stilts. Arriving at the restaurant we sat down and summoned a waiter and got two whom we recognized as William Hogg and Nelson jones, who recommended to us a rare delicacy called "Spaghetti a la l:iorini," originated by none other than john Fiorini, famed cook. We enioyed our dinner while listening to melodious strains of Art Grenier and his Cflrenadiers. As we were leaving, we almost collided with three robust fellows who were panting, "Give the spaghetti to me, john boylu dA,?dlwEe ncmight have known who they were. Yes, they were Bob Leiken, Dick Strange, an ar sc e. - Feeling in the mood for a good show w t t d W , e ro te up orthington St. and found that the old Poli theater was still packing them in. We hailed the doorman to ask about the feature attraction, and who was he but John Bi b H b g y. e was too usy to speak to us, so we went in. We sat down as the feature picture started and were almost knocked out of our seats when we saw flash d h ' ' ' e on t e screen ' The Eternal Triangle, ' starring Robert Keefe and Betty Allen with Charles Mahoney Bob Keefe a d Ch l M . n ar es ahoney certainly boosted their reputation as glamour boys in this picture, and Betty Allen fairly reeked with "omph" that would put Ann Sheridan of 1940 fame to shame. Following the feature, the newsreel started with Gerald Brown as commentator. News of the week was as follows: William Viets, crowned National Ski champion of U. S. A., new super-flyer invented by renowned engineers Philli R d l. p oy an eonard lsabelle, Alice Kittinger elected National Youth Hostel head and so on and so forth We we ll l . re natura y a l excited to find so many of our former classmates had turned out so well. As Springfield had given wa t rh l y o e reve ry of night life, several prominent night clubs had sprung up along Springfield's White Way Ma St , in reet. Most notorious of these was Bob Foster's "liger's Den." The blaring excitement of this New Main Street put us in the mood in no time. So we decided to give out at The 'figer's Den. lnside we were met by two darling little hat-check girls, Helen larosz and Kathleen Harper, who checked our wraps. Entering the ballroom, we saw Bob Foster in the middle of the floor directing the fun just as he did at rh d ld H e ear o i-Y. As we sat down at our table, he introduced as the Nightingale of U S A the lovely Doris M11 Sh . . . i er. e sang "Scatterbrain" which, by the way, Lucky Strike still said was No. 1 on their Hit Parade. Next on the program was Bob Hallam and B'H K' 'h i ing wit two vivacious partners who all but cut up the floor until nothing but sawdust remained in their effort t , o prove to this 1950 audience that iitterbugging was here to stay. ln the interval of dancing that followed nobody includin us seemed to agree with rh I f Q , em onthe mode of rugcutting. As the evening faded into dawn Alice Cranshaw, the famous blues singer virtuall t l , y pu us as eep with one of her selections, and with this we decided to hit the hay. lt was at four i , o e we saw a milk wagon rumbling down Main Street, and after a lusty "Good Morning", Bill Hopper urging old Dobbin into a gallop was lost to sight. We then decided to stay at the Highland Hotel. The lobby of the hotel was practically deserted but sprawled on a divan was the house detective, none other than Sam Applebaum. We had to tap the blond head of the clerk to wake him up and h , as e raised his head we recognized Wilbert Eddy in the glorious esctasy of a sonorous yawn So we had our night's lm . S ean our morning's sleep, and woke up bright and early about 10:30 in the morning and decided to visit the City Hall after breakfast to see a few members of our class, who were working there according to rumors we had picked up. As we were going up the City Hall steps, we saw an elegantly dressed woman with three Pekinese dogs on a leash looking all excited. lt was Pauline Henry, who said she was going to get some dog licenses. The first office we took a peek into was the Mayor's office, and what a shock we got. His Honor Bill Nordstrom was the mayor, the youngest mayor the cit ev h d W y er a . e weren't surprised to see Bob Nathan reclining in a chair. He was the mayor's bodyguard from Berg's We Keep-Em-Alive Detective Agency. ln the outer office we saw evidence that Bill had shown partiality to his class for his staff of two secretar' , ies consisted of the very capable Alma Loerke and Marcella Lynch. All this surely made us feel proud of the great class of january, 1940. n the morning and as we walked towards a h t l ?- , i Since our time limit in the year 1950 A. D. was growing short, we decided to malce one ast visit to dear old Tech high. As we turned into Elliot street about First lunch time, we saw something which gave us a thrill. Mr. Kiley was in the act of nabbing a couple ol students violating recess rules. Good old Mr. Kileyl Somebody will always have to lceep the few mischievous ones in checlc. We all had to get passes Qimagine that? to visit our own alma mater. ln the otlice we learned that several ot our class were teachers in that school because ol recent retire- ments ol lormer teachers. Paul Kerviclc was teaching chemistry and gaining a tyrannical reputation. Leona Downer and Barbara Flanagan had talcen over the designing depart- ment. lt seems that chorus had become more than the rage, lor Johnnie Donovan was there doing the do-re-me's with Mr. Spencer. On leaving the school we met three dapper-looking gentlemen iust coming in. They were john Fenn, Warren Freeman and Eugene Hilton. We learned that they were the owners ol a unique dog hospital, the largest in the world, with Fred Blaine, noted veter- ' in charge ol operations Warren Freeman enlightened us when he said that being narian, . in the dog-house so often started them on their canine career. So with hasty larewells we departed tor our Timosphere which by now had quite a crowd ol curious people around it. Women are curious creatures as we all lcnow, and three ol them had obviously seen something lamiliar in the class worlcings on the Tim- osphere and were trying to get in. We thought they must be former lechites, and they re N1 Childs Ruth Daigneau, and Dot Dowling were the last humans ol1950 we were we . . , to see for ten years to come. h uid tell about our adventure, we induced Fairly bursting with oratory about w at we wo lc t ' home This resulted in our returning baclc to 1940, spinning Mr. Aiken to malce a quic rip . upside down with a resulting crash in which we were all lcnoclced out. Believe it or not we are john R. Fleming, Eleanor Hottbauer. -f-, CLASS WILL i We, the graduating class of january in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred , and forty, and of the Technical High School, l Springfield, Massachusetts, of sound and dis- l posing mind and memory, yet considering the l uncertainties of our lives, and to the end that we may leave this Technical High School in i good standing, do therefore, malce and de- l clare this our last will and testament, in the l l l i manner following, that is to say: l.

Signed, Gertrude Wieland Martel Berge George Ferarrese George Fisk l Witnesses: I Lauretta Guilbert Albert Winkler Elizabeth Gourley PROPHECY OF THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1940 High on a lonely mountain crag, l, lone survivor of a lost civilization, stood watching the magnificent grandeur stretched before me, far as eye could see, yet it gave me no thrill of pride in its ownership, only a melancholy appreciation of its vast beauty. Memory of those l had lost so long ago returned to me more clearly than usual. My mind busied itself with the past. l thought of the war which broke out in 1939 and had become world wide by 1950, by 1958, that which had been prophesied for so long had come to pass: civilization had perished, pestilence and starvation strode abroad. Having forseen all this, l left the haunts of manlcind, strilcing out into the wilderness, where, surviving through tremendous odds, l managed to provide an existence for myself.

"Not by a long sight, come on and l'll show you sornethingf' Grabbing me, he sprang off through the air. ln the twinlcling of an eye, the breathtalcing beauty of a dream city stretched before us. "What is this?" l aasoed. d C l 'Ms Techlandia the homeland of your classmates of the class of june, "This," sai ar o, i , 1940. We were the only ones with the stamina to survive, naturally, we managed to ' h -civilization. group together and that gave us the idea that now we could start t e super Somehow, we missed you.'l On our inspection tour of the outer walls, we met George Fislc, chief engineer, and a corps of men including Vincent Catelotti, Harvey Billings, and Nelson Dahdah talcing turns gazing with deep concentration through a transit at lgot liastrecli, Connie Bray, and Dorothy Ellsworth who lust happened to be talcing a strol in t e suns ine. Not wishing to be seen with a long beard and dressed in the sl4ins of wild animals, l had Carlo talce me to a huge department store down the street, owned by Sammy Rindge, where Nancy Dumond groomed us for appearance in lechlandia and regaled us with its latest gossip, "Betty Bohner and Robert Croft were living together in a penthouse, Bob Breclc was seen with a girl not long before - etc., etcfl Feeling gloriously fit in the latest 1970 togs, we hurried out for further inspection of the city, and to find more old friends. ln the school, we were interested to see Prof. Merz and his assistant Miriam Marquardt demonstrate to an assembly how he had slowed down light so that he could turn around in front of a mirror and see what he loolced lilce from behind. Barbara Marsh expounded the attributes of infinity in another room. And finally, we heard Dave Dillman vehemently lecturing to a gaping class on "Why l Wish l Weren't Here" or "Whats Wrong With The World." ln the corridor, Franlclin Clark grabbed a poor little freshie and dragged him into the office for loolcing at him and saying "Baal . I . ll 1 dl, Carlo toolc me into the governing chamber where Paul Phinney reigned or raine as l4 A h t' Elmer Swanson was water boy and l.auretta Guilbert did most of the wor . tt e ime, tallcing, apparently to himself, as nobody seemed to be listening. Outside in the streets again, Prof. Riga and Dr. DeBell emerged from the Woodworth Laboratories arguing about three missing electrons. They were promptly subdued by sergeants Reigel and Straight. Feeling hungry, we went into "Votze's Vestibulen where a piece of croclcery, thrown at "Pinky" Webster by Mary Campbell from the lcitchen, hit me. ln the corner, Asa Snyder happily manipulated Ronnie Waters Super Doughnut Dunlring Derriclc. The soup was brought in by Karl Esche, Carlo immediately found a fly in it put there on purpose by Lee Allen, George Ferrarese the head waiter was called for. He of course did nothing about it. While eating, we listened to the soothing music of Kip Broolcs and the boys. A sour trumpet made me loolc up in time to see Ha Id h ' ' ' ' ro Jo nson wrrnlcling hrs nose, and Ervme Johnston laughing from behind the tuba. Everywhere on the streets, clothes designed by Carl Hedin were evident. We saw Winnie Meister wearing a beautiful fur grown on her own farm, Margaret Clemmer, wearing a beautiful glass creation, ran by to catch a slcy bus. Off in an obscure corner, l saw three efficient loolcing women scratching their collective heads over something. Carlo said that they were Alice Weznialc, Fran Benoit, and Marion Bell, who were trying to set up a decent calendar. We toolc a loolc into station WOW, where of course th f' A . - . e irst person we saw was led ustrn. Sid Ziff elevated us to the studios where Don Phillips was campaigning forthe garbage collectorship,- he had made a good beginning already. ln the control room, Albert Winlcler was gleefully pulling levers and pushing buttons. "Now", said Carlo, "l will show you something that is something." We went down through old air-raid shelters, subways, etc., into a vault where Sid Law, Warren Morgan, and John Flynn stood reverently around a contraption. "These fellows invented that to help Gert Wieland in her mathematics, it gives answers in three seconds and in F' d'ff l ' ive i erent anguages and is always correct, yet Kay Staginaro aslced one it couldn't answer, she innocentl d d h ' y won ere w at the formula for a peroxide blonde was.

We do a little pencil slcetching, but l enioy most the part of the course where we worlc out our ideas on manne- quins. These mannequins are about twenty-eight inches toll and have detachable arms. The materials we use range from soft velvet to stitt crepe paper. Sometimes we cut the material to Fit the model, sometimes we drape the material and then pin it into position. Once we made a complete slcating costume out of crepe paper supplemented by a pair of soclcs. It s fun to plan a wardrobe for one ol these mannequins in fact it is lust lilce playing with dolls but in a more grown up fashion Dolores Mediavelli 314 PX-Wax 'QsX ff PATTERN MAKING As you enter any of the pattern malcing rooms, you will smell the pungent odor of wood. Another odor will be that of melting beeswax, which is used to Fill cracks and malce smooth, round corners in the finished patterns. First l talce you to the lathes used in the shop, they are the best in the school, and are con- trolled by pushing a button. Next we tal4e in the various saws: the band saw used lor cutting out rough circular pieces of wood and, next in line, the iig saw, used for Finishing circular worlc. There is little need ol enumerating the manual tools such as the hand saw, hand plane, steel square and the all important gauge The prolects all practical are the wrench wheel braclcet piston rod and the large cast iron nut Before shorter periods were instituted here at Technical even propellers were made a extremely fussy 'ob Arthur Boucher 113 xx lgcx f so N if f f . .

The smell of grease and machine oil grows more pronounced as I approach this room. The vacant quiet of the shop is brolcen by the crash of wooden loclcers, and a iumble of sound fills the room as the material is set in the machines. The worlc begins with the deep rumble of powerful motors. The sharp clinlc of wrenches on tool posts is followed by the whir of cutting steel. Flashing lights play from the delicate threads of steel and the satin-smooth surface as the tool moves along its carriage. The shining wheels and the burnished Icnobs turn rapidly under the eager hands of the boys. The orderly noise of our individual worlc blends with the sound of meshed gears and the claclcing of leather belting. A deafening silence rolls over the shop as the power is shut off. The eager discussion of the day's worlc is interrupted by the bell, and the period closes. Warren Chapin, 111 RUNNING A LATHE Upon my arrival in the machine shop, I run to my loclcer, unloclc it, talce out necessary im- plements, and run to three or four other places for tools. In the matter of two minutes I am ready for worlc. I can assure you this talces plenty of practice plus system. The different operations practiced on a lathe are as follows: thread cutting, cutting with or without baclc-gears, finishing, drilling, boring, reaming, taper cutting, shaping on a chuclc, and several others I am sure I don't lcnow about. Ar present, I am cutting with baclc-gears. This is a slow tedious iob, so I lean baclc on a nearby machine and listen to the slapping of belts, squealcing of pulleys, lathes, and gears, and the singing ofa happy boy struggling to be heard above the natural noise ofthe shop, a taslc I hope he won't accomplish. Abruptly the motors are stopped, and we are notified that it's time to clean up. This consists of brushing our machines spiclc and span and reversing the order of steps upon entrance. This, through a great deal of practice, can also be done in two or three minutes.

Precipitates, solutions, suspensions, all part of Chemistry 3. This course in chemistry is entirely different from previous courses, having as its basis laboratory worlc, whereas the other courses specialized in classroom worlc. In Chemistry 3 the student studies several substances, learns their properties and tests, and is then given a solu- tion containing one or more of the above-mentioned compounds. He is then on his own, and he must learn the identity of his solution. This is where a student shows his ability. IF he has studied and learned previous lessons, he will have little difficulty solving his problem, but if he is unprepared he will encounter extreme difficulty. Franlc Paige, Lab. 308 A CHEMISTRY EXPERIMENT As you come to Room 307 you can tell by your senses that this is a chemistry laboratory You can hear the murmur of voices and the clinlcrng of test tubes and smell the bunsen burners as everybody prepares for the experiment on oxygen There are many ways to malce oxygen One of them is to put a mixture of manganese dioxide and potassium chlorate in a test tube and heat it A gas is then formed To prove this is oxygen we put in a glowing splint II this flares we have proof that the gas is oxygen There is nothing especially difficult about this experiment anybody can do it The experiment is so interesting that the bell for the next period surprises us Robert McGee, 307 1 mix Vx -,x ' It fflf, It I 1' ix lgcx fyf f MUTE Thdh the DGY.S WOTIK C Robert Royce realizing that Technical should have a turntable to malce its public address system complete, borrowed one from the High School of Commerce and gave a private demonstration to Maior Adams, Mr. Kiley, and Miss Bell. They then helped him and joseph McMorrow to arouse school interest and secure contributions for the purchase of a turntable of our own. Royce and john Donoghue are now the official operators of the school's public address system. An Artist Miss Roy had a one-woman show ot lithograph crayon drawings during March in the Art Room of the City Library. The City Library Bulletin said, "Miss Roy is a serious and thoughtful artist in oil, water color, and blaclc and white drawing." Maior Adams is a director ot the Springfield Cooperative Bank and also is a chairman of the Board of Trustees of the G. A. R. Memorial Building. A Student Scientist John R. Fleming was presented the Bausch and Lomb Science Medal in January. A Textbook Writer Miss Swenson has been revising the textbook of which she is co-author, "The Family and its Relationships." Mr. Woodworth sings regularly in the Hope Church Choir and also is a member of the MacDowell Male Choir. He is secretary ot the latter. A Club President 5 Mr. Kiley is president ot the Kiwanis Club. Miss Bell had the honor ot spealcing to the Division ot Motion Pictures ot the Connecticut State Teachers Convention in the Fall. W' . o K"'7 Mr. Spence had four articles in the "American Machinist" this past year. When his family wants any luxury, he writes an article. A motorboat and a cottage at the Cape have been purchased this way. Miss Rhoda B. Allen had an article describing a transparent house and sets of small-scale furniture that she has built to help her students who cannot draw, to visualize problems in interior decoration, in the "School Arts Magazine" of April. An Officer Mr. Broolcs is secretary of the New England Association of Chemistry Teachers and editor of their quarterly magazine "Report". He is also the author of two textbooks and a set of obiective tests in physics. ln a legal case he was consulted on the analysis of gasoline.
