The class of 1928 records with deep apprecia- tion the untiring guidance of tl1c faculty, thc loyalty of the staff members in the fulfillment of their duties, and the universal support of the student body, without which this seventh volume, compiled to the best of our abilities, could not have been undertaken. We are also greatly indebted to those who have so generously subscribed the advertisements which are found upon these pages, for the material success of our annual depends upon the vital aid of our advertisers. lYe earnestly hope that they will be duly rewarded for their kindness and generosity. We trust as you scan these pages in the years to come that this book will serve to recall the many pleasures shared with us within the walls and upon the campus of our beloved school. As we now are about to depart, one by one, each pursuing his own course, may this book ever be a tie to bind our hearts together in loving remembrance of Thayer Academy, 1928. eh C 1 W A W W it I i STAFF A mf UQ fx , w QA , -- xswsy 6459 I f - f , '- I I 4 I A A :J I LR 'J M, n kidney. 1, 'YT Un...

Semi-Centennial Pageant OUR HERITAGE On Saturday afternoon, June eighteenth, on the Academy lawn, was given the Semi-Centennial Pageant, in which the entire school participated. The pageant was divided into two distinct parts: first, a series of episodes in the life of General Sylvanus Thayer, showing his relation to education, and second, the symbolic representation of the various departments giving an insight into the Thayer of Today. Thus it was purposed to show the tradition upon which the Academy was founded and the richness of the heritage which is its cherished possession. In the prologue, Youth, impersonated by Carlisle Abell, is drawn from the midst of a care-free and irresponsible dance by the Spirit of Education, Viekery Hubbard. in order "To ope his eyes, new blinded, to the Light Of Opportunity cmd Privilege rare, Unfold the Past, reveal the Preserit's'eall, And give to him the Future's golden hey." As they watch the pageant proceed, the Spirit of Education interprets to Youth the meaning of the different episodes. In the first episode, in part one of the pageant, Youth sees Sylvanus Thayer as school master in a district school 'tamid New Hampshire hills in early days" surrounded by young children Hgathered there to learn of him." The first part of the second episode occurs at Dartmouth College at the time of Commencement in 1807 when Sylvanus Thayer as he is about to serve as valedictorian of his class, receives his appointment to West Point. Scene two of this episode pictures the activity of the civil engineers of the Thayer School of Civil Engineering which General Thayer gave to Dartmouth in 1867. "And now a school to special training lent Bears there his name, and forth its students sends." 12 -n ' Q - ,thu N ,I 4 , Qwiai-, fm :fl ,.

He has been appointed Superintendent of the Academy, and is straight- ening out a disorganized school for: "-When West Point was in her sorcst need, She called him forth, the greatest of her sons, To come to build up ufhat had fallen down, And raise a structure worthy of the name." Again NVesti Point is shown to Youth when, in 1883, a magnificent statue of General Thayer is presented to the Military Academy by General Cullum. of the Class of 1833 and accepted by General Merritt, Superintendent,--"a monument reared in loving gratitude to the 'Father of the Military Academy., ll Episode Four commemorates the establishment by General Thayer of a public library in Braintree and the provision made in his will Htor thc purpose of appropriating a sum not exceeding sixty thousand dollars to be used for the purchase of a piece of land in Braintree, and for the erection of an edifice or edifices thereon, suit- able for an academy in which young persons ot both the male and female sex shall be educated." Thus Scholarship, Service, Loyalty, and Obedience form the cornerstone of the Thayer Academy. The first part of the pageant is over and the Spirit of Education speaks to General Thayer: f'Your zworlc is done. Nou' may we show you here What has been urought of all you left in trust. From its beginning much has come to pass, The fruit of that small seerl you planted long ago." 13 ,Nr A- f'-' SYTSK TU, . ,J-,k,v44M,xSggg2ig 'fan-EL-.f.-,ms X 5 1'C:51,?: iv x?,:5 4. 7229- f -Qujkgx 'I " "C ' fi-' uf - - 1 f igul' 'll' w' A ' 1- mf sl r i T V M 43 W.-.v.-.1 .--r4f4i1vx45.'-' JN -gf L". W . Part Two of the pageant is preceded by a procession of alumni of the Acad- emy concluding with a group from the class of 1927. The first department to be represented in the Thayer of Today is Latin. The Spirit of the Classics enters who Hyvould sing of a race that is gone, who yet in passing left to all peoples alike its treasure of language and storyf' Then there appear to Youth the students impersonating Latin words, the instruments, succeeded hy the triumph of Caesar, a gay procession, led by the conqueror himself on a prancing steed, next is seen Cicero before the Senate, and then Virgil watches, at one side, the famous flight Qfroin TroyfAencas leading his son, and carrying Anchises on his shoulders. A scene from Gocthels t'Hermann und Dorothea" is enacted by the students of Ger- man, and The Spirit of France gives her message to Youth. Corneille, Racine, and Moliere appear at her call. The Spirit of English now commands the stage and summons Composition and Fiction, Drama, Essay, Oration and Poetry, as represented by Dickens, Shakespeare, Johnson, Webster, and the Goddess Poetry, to convey their message to Youth. The yvonders of Science are revealed in a rainbow dance demonstrating the colors of the spectrum. And now to Youth is opened the Algebra Book-from which tumble forth the many symbols who show "the way they do behave"--followed closely by her sister, Geometry, represented by the formation of geometric figures. Old Father Time appears, as History, to survey the Ancient people, represented by maidens in Creek costume, the Medi- eval, represented by a knight leaving for the tournament, and the Moderns, show- ing most recent progress as they pass before him. Then Euterpe, the Lyric Muse, gives forth her music in sweet song, and Pan plays to the wood nymphs. Last to reveal herself to Youth is Physical Education. Health gives her message. setting forth the ideals of Physical Education and their representation in school activities. Finally all reappear and, led by the Spirit of Education accompanied by Youth, disappear into the walls of Thayer, leaving behind in the last words to General Thayer the school's appreciation of the past and its hope for the future- the richness of the heritage and the responsibility of the gift- "The torch you lighted may irc carry on! Those who receive must also frccly give, .May ire together omrrzrd tczlrc our tray To great achfcrcmcnt, faithful to our trust." 14 7 SENUICCDLQQS L-nl 1 l I L l A.: - 1 P - .f ..

Y '13 ae- ' fi w T' fcffff-r ' L 1 History of Class l Six long years have passed since we entered Thayer as the second sixth class of the Academy. How small we seemed as we gazed with awe at the Seniors and how we looked forward to 1928 when we should be looking down upon those freshmen just entering! Then, with Miss Porter to guide us on the first lap of our journey, we started ' the r'oad"to't'Kn'o'wledge.' tVe'publislred' twice a class magazine, the HNow and Then,'l and also presented three scenes from Dickens, 'fChristmas Carol." The next year saw us, no longer 'Preps," well started toward making a name for ourselves at Thaye1'. Pupils from many different schools came to join our class, swelling our ranks. We proved our worth as scholars by a long honor roll. The athletic field next absorbed our attention, both girls and boys reporting for afternoon practice at hockey and football respectively. We continued to work hard with the result that, at the end of our third year, two of our classmates won prizes: Katherine MacKinnon, the Lincoln Essay Medallion, and Barbara Ellis, the Phoebe Lee Hosmer Prize for French. Also the Senior Middle Dramatics was opened to our class and Steven Scudder repre- sented us well. Last year when we assumed the responsibilities of full fledged upper class- men, our earlier days seemed very far away indeed. We gave our Senior Nliddle Reception which, without a doubt, was the finest ever given. Then, too, we pre- sented our play 'tThe Goose Hangs High," which was a great success. Now, we have reached the last lap of our travels at Thayer. The girls have won the hockey championship which has hovered near them twice before but only to tease them, to urge them to ight harder. The boys have distinguished themselves on the gridiron and will, I am sure, bring credit to their class as well as to the School in baseball. Both girls and boys are greatly interested in tennis and basketball. But our scholastic record alone surpasses our athletic successes. We are still "holding our own" upon the honor roll. We have still a few more months to go in which we all hope that we may distinguish ourselves and leave to Thayer only pleasant memories of our class. We have reached the top step only with the help and friendly guidance of a faithful faculty. Whatever work we have accomplished, we have accomplished with their kindly assistance. Now, from our high position, we may look back with joy over the many happy days spent at Thayer, and forward to the few- all too few-that lie ahead.

"I leave thy greatness to be guessed' The first we heard of John was at the time when Mr. South- worth announced his name on the Honor Roll back in the fifth class days, and since then the name of Hagen has come to mean much to us. John's way of etting things done has brought him to the stage managership of the Senior Middle Play, to a place on the Student Council, and to the Editorship of the Year Book. In ad- dition to these accomplishments, John has won a place for him- self in our hearts, where he will stay for a long time. John is going to M. I.

In basketball, put the ball in her hands and the basket is as good as made. Then, too, she certainly can take the hockey ball down the field. Many is the time she has changed a game from infamous defeat to glorious victory. A muddy field makes no difference to Marj.

Bob, althol possessed of what goes hand in hand with a fiery temper, is an exception to the rule, for he's the mildest and most cheerful of men. Perhaps that's one reason Why he has established himself so quickly in our midst. It may be that some day Bob will be helping to direct our naval policy. At any rate, he hopes to go to Annapolis. DAVID ROY CUTLER CDaveJ M. I. T. "I am a part of all that I have met" This youth is another of our star pupils, for it is not everyone who can get 100 per-cent in a College Board test in geometry. Davels car will be greatly missed next year, unless he teaches one of his sisters to drive it, a task which at present he is loath to undertake. Dave went on the famous trip to Denmark and learned to 'tJeg elsker dig" just like a Dane. Although he says the rolling deep held no terror for him, Bob and Steve merely grin and look wise.

RICHARD DENNISON CDickD Harvard "Hts memory long will live alone in all our hearts" Dick came to us from the Quincy High School to lead cheers in football and to receive them in baseball. He can surely cover that third sack to the queen's taste, and he has been a captain of great ability. But in more serious pursuits he shines even more brilliantly. A large amount of the success of the Student Council is due to his sterling, honest leadership. In class he has proved a good, hard- working student, In so far as we know, Dick has but two faults: he bowls over opposing catchers rather hard in his tempestuous dashes to home plate, and he sometimes arouses the ire of motor- cycle "cops" Remember that incident on the Newburyport turn- pike after the Dummer game last year, Dick?

But truth compels us to state that his bowling is not on par with his basket-ball.

GEORGE ALFRED JONES Harvard f'0ne that sought but Duty's iron crown" Pacing our halls with a staid, aloof dignity, George is oblivious to all distractions save only one-the bells. Perhaps George, like the rest of us, has had his difficulties with review math., but when it comes to manipulating extra seconds by elaborate ratios, and fucking in extra minutes where there aren't any-why, he even has Father Time craning his neck in bewilderment. George firmly be- lieves that the absence of the doctor depends on the daily apple. His particular forte is American history, his chief interest, boats. Shall we ever forget the thrilling deceptive history of the wreck of the 'tBoston"? ARTHUR JUSTICE University of Cincinnati "He has a solid base of temperament" The "Art" of the gentle voice is one of our best friends.

The history of the class of 1929 begins in September, 1923, when, as previous historians have informed us, twenty-five frightened children entered Thayer Academy for the first time. Those of us who were in the famous sixth class will never forget it. The good times we had will always remain in our memory. In April we presented "Master Skylark" and took a memorable trip to Concord and Lexington on the proceeds. Then, in June, came the fateful entrance examina- tions. Much to our surprise we actually survived them, and found ourselves the following September duly enrolled as members of the fifth class. Our freshman year was not particularly notable in any way. Our struggles with Latin and Algebra prevented us from contributing generously to the honor roll, while our prowess on the athletic field was still more or less a minus quantity. As the fourth class, with the study hall for a home room, we gained for ourselves the rather doubtful distinction of being the noisiest class in school. We still hold this tit-le, as Mr. Lane can testify. In regard to scholarship and athletics we had yet to make a name for ourselves. However, this obscurity was destined not to last long, for the following year showed much improvement. The girls won the interelass championship in field hockey, and the boys did likewise in basketball. Then, just to give the faculty a grand surprise, and show it could be done, we led the school on the honor roll. And now we are "senior-midsf' So far, the year has been a good one. In November, we gave our Senior Middle Reception, which proved very successful. Our class play "The Youngest" met with the favor of all.

G ordon Baird HISTORY OF CLASS III Three short, busy, and entertaining years have almost passed, and what happy years they have been for us! Can we ever forget our first lonely days in the fifth class, especially those of us who were not graduates of Thayerlands'? But it was only for a short time because we were soon made to feel like a part of the busy school life. In the way of socials we had an exceedingly snowy sleigh ride, and saw the picture "Ben Hur." In the fourth class, the girls played hockey and the boys made their mark in football. In connection with our English studies, we saw Shakcspeare's HMid- summer Night's Dream." This year we have struggled with geometry and Cicero. The boys disting- uished thcmselves in football, while the girls valiantly upheld our class reputa- tion in hockey and basketball. We now wear class pins which we feel are very satisfactory emblems of the class of 1930. We have all worked hard in these last three years and, encouraged by our teachers, we are aiming for new heights in the next two years. Because we feel that we are a part of our school, we are confident of success both in Thayer and after we leave. 38 Dorothy Tilden ' A ' kV'7'f"r' x -2. -ff, " ff - I f :H 11' -yn - fu. O -.

Last year we entered upon a new era of school life. We were graduated from the "R's',, readin', 'ritin', 'rithmetic Instead, we learned three new eases a noun could have, and lwe still Wonder how the ancient Romans ever spoke such a complex language. This year we follow Caesar from battle to battle, and every- one can detect an ablative absolute in his sleep. In algebra we first learned our a plus b's, and now we are speaking the algebraic jargon with fewer and fewer mistakes. History has introduced us to kings and queens, wars and treaties, from the Pharaohs to the Bourbons. In French class we are told the customs of the French people as well as learning their beautiful language. Our English liter- ature has been varied. We have read from Shakespeare, George Eliot, Scott, and others, and have kept up with our clauses and predicate nominatives, too. The boys have won letters in football, and the girls, numerals in hockey. The Junior League, to 'which some of our boys belong, has won several games and is good material for the future team. The girls have improved in hockey, so that this year we actually won a game, and the scores against us were much smaller than those of last year. Some day we'll be the champions! This year We elected Bunny Emerson to represent us in the Student Council. We hope to carry on the ideals and aims of the classes before us and the tradit- ions of the Thayer Academy.

The first day was easy, for all we did was to receive our programs and go to the different teachers and write our names and addresses on paper for them, so they would know what to call us. We soon got adjusted and when we were acquainted with our teachers, we found out that Thayer -wasn't going to be such a terrible place after all. Under the guidance of Miss Sleeper in Latin we waded thru the declensions, conjugations, and comparisons. In English Miss Hoeh pushed us thru UThe Lady of the Lake" and then gave us grammar. We learned all about gerunds, participles, iniinitives, and relative clauses. Then We enjoyed 1'Treasure Island" by Stevenson, followed by "A Merchant of Venice." Thru the many tests inflicted upon us by Miss Briscoe in history we learned all about Babylon, Egypt, Persia, Greece, and Rome. We saw how AleXander's empire rose and fell, and how Hannibal marched across the Alps. Miss Emerson taught us how to do equations and how to factor and multiply in algebra. In fact, we practically learned the alphabet over again! This fall one of the divisions of our class won the plaque for the junior kicking game championship. That showed us that we could at least make a small impression in the school affairs. The girls organized a hockey team with which they beat Thayerlands. Although we have four more years to go yet, we hope to go through success- fully in that time and go to our various colleges, with five happy years behind us. FRED KIMBALL. 42 :szlgffp 1.

During her years as a teacher at Thayer Academy, she conceived the idea of a junior school. Her picturesque and lovely home was ideal for the accomplishment of her desire, as it adjoined the Thayer Academy campus. The autumn of '27 found our class at the top of the ladder. Some of our class have the honor of being the first to complete the entire course of study at Thayerlands. We now have class meetings and have elected officers. Our presidents have been William Benson, Jonathan French, and Charles Rogers. We also have class-pins and rings, and feel most grown up. Last fall the boys' football squad met again on the field of battle with four other schools. Our boys were not always victorious but were good sports and showed a Hne spirit. The captain was Bradford Walker, and the manager, Jonathan French. After the football season Mrs. Prouty and Mrs. Ewart, the mothers of two of our boys, invited the team to Mrs. Prouty's home where they enjoyed a very bountiful dinner which more than compensated for our scores. A few ,weeks after the beginning of school, in assembly, our principal, Miss Wilcox, announced the opening of an after-school class of sloyd for the boys. A group of interested boys took it up and Mr. Cheeny, the instructor, has shown thern how to make many useful things. We trust they will help build the new bui ding. A few days before the U. S. S. Lexington was commissioned by the U. S. Navy, the class of '28 was invited by Mr. Larkin to visit the enormous airplane carrier. VVe found out a great deal about ships and enjoyed the afternoon. Mr. White has inspired the orchestra. and each member is making an attempt to keep on the right tone, while the Glee Club hopes in time to be an organization of note as Well as notes. As is customary, we gave a Christmas play at Thayer Academy. This year we presented, "Ye Olde English Christmas." It was successful and we cleared seventy-five dollars which raised the endowment fund to one thousand six hundred and forty-six dollars. WVe have been honored by many speakers who have entertained us with in- structive talks on various subjects. The first day of school Mrs. Rogers welcomed everybody in a very cordial way to Thayerlandsg Lieut. McCusker en- tertained us on Armistice Dayg Mr. NVaitstill Sharp spoke to us about the valuable things in life: friendship, education, human beings, and nature, Mr. Burgess, president of the Boston Gear NVorks came to Thayerlands and spoke to us about circles, which were very interesting. He presented us with a cornucopia which signifies prosperity. One morning the eighth grade was invited to attend the assembly at Thayer Academy. Three boys gave lectures to us about their trip to Denmark. Miss McArdle, a former English teacher and friend of Thayerlands, surprised us all one morning by coming back to Thayerlands in "Trotsky," her famous car. She told us about the school in Brooklyn where she is teaching. Joy and sorrow strangely blend as we think of leaving Thayerlands, but pleasant memories will always linger.

V 'I tl i The season of 1927 was 21 good one for Thayer football, with six vietories and one defeat. The first game with Plymouth High School gave Coach Hincks a chance to try out all the material, and we won, 9-0. The next Week the team journeyed to Stoughton for an 18-6 victory, the result of team Work and lots of fighting spirit. The Roxbury Latin team visited us next and Went away with the short end of a. twelve to nothing score. 50 'au .Mfg .:., 5.4,4A"ixR?:'?xp. -4',,.-,fx Z Nhd A -:A-v. Q 'F' A. , L 1 -,-, A, vi .

The Thayer boys played well, and fought hard, but the Providence team took advantage of the breaks in the iirst half and managed to hold us in thc second half. Tl1e next week, determined to play the second half first, with the aid of an intercepted pass by Miller, and a thirty-five yard run by Brown, the boys pushed over a touchdown against St. Marks early in the first period, and kept the oppon- ents from scoring at all. November seventh the Junior Varsity got a chance to show its worth, en- tirely replacing the first team after the first touchdown against DeWitt Clinton, and finished the game thirty-six to six. We finished a successful season with the victory over Tabor Academy, 2-0, a hard fought game, with little advantage on either side. This last victory is especially significant, for Tabor beat Moses Brown, 19-0 Moses Brown beat Thayer, 19-0, and Thayer beat Tabor 2-0, an endless triangle. The team didn't have the fighting spirit in the Moses Brown game that it dis- played later, against St. Marks and Tabor, but it did the best it could. . - as fi SECOND SQUAD 51 l m ful i mimi ii E: i I 1 I, - 2 Q , llll i ill, 4 ' T' E514-nv, Last spring we had a good baseball team, which won eight games and lost three. The team was ably eaptained by Lloyd Hamilton, and the managerial duties were dispatched by Steven Seudder. Paul Ketchum, and Richard Dennison, the Captain-elect for 1928, led in batting averages. The first game we won from Roxbury Latin, our friendly rival in football and baseball, by 7-0. Three days later, Noble and Greenough defeated us on our own field, 5-3. 52 T All lla limi 55 Mn s es 4-Si-1Es"g,M"X as. x uf-,ff Wil, 'X rf.f . .1 .. . 1,1 -If r " ' .'?' .-' '. 1' '-" .'-- V .'lC'.'.'1"'?.4' 9.1 '-'- 3' ' F T4." 1' .Q " 4' l , ' ' X --'-r " ' ' sr 'f - -lx V ' " . .1 lf' xr 1 F ' - .

The boys journeyed to Newton and returned with a 7-4 triumph over Country Day. On the following day, April 30, we played Tabor Academy at Marion. It was a "Walk away", 14-2. Continuing their winning streak, the boys Won over Moses Brown, 6-0. The next week Thayer ran into a thunder storm, in more ways than one, and M1lt0H was leading, 5-3, when rain stopped the game in the sixth inning. VVe made up for this defeat in the game with Huntington, winning 3-2. The annual game with St. Markls School, at Soutliboro, was a defeat for Thayer, 7-1. The last game of the season resulted in a victory over the Braintree High School on our home grounds, 7--2, closing a season featured by good teamwork, and some fine individual showings. SECOND TEAM 53 as it ,ll Interclass basketball was started immediately following the Christmas recess. Two leagues were formed, a Junior and a Senior. The Senior League was composed of two teams from Class One, captained by Sears and Rayner, two teams from Class Two, under Captains Miller and Holtg and two teams from Class Three, the captains being Crnospelius and Nelson. The Junior League had two teams from Class Four: Captains Emerson and TenBroeek. and three teams from Class Five with captains Harcourt, Rawson, and Hopkins. The final was between Harcourt and TenBr0eek, won after a bitter struggle by TenBroeek, 13-9. I I I . The team captained by Sears in a fierce contest with Raynerls team won the Senior League championship, 20-16. Hayes starred for the losing team with ten points, and Sears and Martin contributed largely to their team's success. Following this an All-Star team was chosen to play four games with outside teams: two with the Rivers School, one with De Witt Clinton School, and one with Braintree High School. The two with Rivers were both won: 20 to 15, 3 to 36, and the game with DelVitt Clinton also by a 48-5 score. The tealii played remarkably well in these games, but in the last game with our town rivals they did not fare so well, losing 30-19, after one of the fastest last periods of basketball ever seen in the High School gymnasium. Captain Sears, Miller and McCormack were the outstanding players of the season. 54 . Ti' fx X gr T gf. k A .L I 5 A AMUH The first ice hockey team representing the Thayer Academy in several years had a very encouraging season. Out of ten scheduled games, five were played, the other five games were postponed or cancelled on account of poor ice con- ditions. The team proved very good in spite of the fact that there was not enough ice to hold regular practice. The team, consisting of players Aldrich, Brown, Cleaves, Cochrane, Dennison, Hayes, O'Byrne, McCormack, and Shulze, under the leadership of Captain Wayne, played many hard fought games. The first game was played at the Rivers School. The ice was very soft and the playing was rather difficult. At several crucial points in the game the puck would get caught in the ice and spoil a bit of excellent team play. In spite of these poor conditions, all enjoyed watching the game. The Rivers School managed to get two long shots at the goal which determined the result. There were two games played with the Wellesley High School. In these games Thayer played the best hockey of the season, and the latent power of the team made itself manifest. The Wellesley boys displayed excellent passwork and such finesse of team play that we were beaten both times by close margins, 3-2 and 2-1. The second game, however, was played with two overtime periods. One of the most exciting games of the season was played with a strong sex- tette from the Browne and Nichols School. This game was played as a home game at Cunningham Park, East Milton. Soft ice would continually break up the team play of both sides. It was on one of these "flukes," where the puck got caught in the ice, that a Browne and Nichols player grasped the opportunity and broke away into an open field for a goal. This was the only goal in the game. In a practice game with the strong Milton Academy outfit, our boys made a creditable showing, holding the opponents to a low score of 2-1. The students supported the team very well considering the fact that all games were played away from the home rink. We all look forward to the time when ice hockey will occupy the place in Thayer athletics that it should, as a vigorous outdoor sport. NVe certainly have made a good start, and we are to be congratulated upon having a hockey rink right at our door. As it is completed and improved, the rink will in the future become the center of attraction in our Winter sports. 55 56 5 Q Q E .

The lVollaston Golf Club gave us the use of their splendid course at Montclair for our home matches. The season opened with victories over Dorchester High School, St. Mary's High School of lValtham, and Dunimcr Academy. They proved to be no match for our versatile team composed of Hamilton Hutton. captain, George Churchill, Leon Emerson, Richard lYoodsum, and Robert Hutton. So it was with high hopes that we journeyed to Exeter Academy to meet their crack team. There we ran up against Philips Finlay, Eastern Inter- scholastie champion, considered to be the longest hitter in the world. Our fighting blood was up, and we gave them a terrific battle only to lose 5-3. Bob Hutton played live extra holes before winning, and Bunny Emerson, two. Boston Latin proved to be an easy victim, and Newton High School had some battle to tie us -L-4. Surely if there were such a title as A-lNIassachusetts Private School Cham- pions" we had a good claim to it.

'iiiiiii' l f O I ' 0 O THAYER TENNIS TEAM-1927 The tennis team made its entrance into Thayer athletics this year, Although it was not undefeated, the team rapidly improved as the season Went on, and it hopes to see a victorious team next year. "Bill'7 Ga-ssett, the captain and founder of the team, was defeated in only one match during the entire season. He was supported by Baker, Holbrook, Remiek, Cutler, B. Cleaves, Connell, Hubbard, and manager 'Waters The first game in which a Thayer tennis team has ever been represented was played with Dummer Academy at Dummer. Our opponents proved to have the superior team, and We were defeated by a score of 5-2. Although Thayer was at the small end of the score again when the team encountered Country Day School, we gave our opponents a great deal of opposit- ion, and because of the time it was necessary for the deciding match to be called off with a score of 1-1 sets and 14-13 games in the last set. Our next game, which was with the Rivers School, was an overwhelming victory for Thayer the score being 4-0. The last game of the season was played with 1Yellcsley High School. The team continued with the good showing of the preceding game, and won with a score of 3-1. 58 .. - .--..s--- . p rr .-.-v. Y -s--'- n"'vr. vn u :ng-,.,4,. ,JJL5 45456 Saiiul , :A '-ll...

From the first, II and III seemed the best teams and the series finished much as it was expected to. The gym on the afternoon of the twenty-second was the scene of a spirited tilt. Classes II and III started off with stunts, each one using a color chosen for the occasion. Class III gave its supporters bits of blue crepe paper, While the Class II supporters Wore orange. The audience was large and noisy but very good natured. At the end of the first half Class III stood in the lead by 4 points with a score of 16. During the third quarter the score was tied at 22. Then Class II miraculously jumped to 2'6. The final Whistle ended the game with the score 2'6-24 in favor of Class II.

This fall, the school voted to organize a student council as a body repre- sentative of each class and organization in the school. The Council's first task was the drawing up of a constitution, in which the following aim was set forth: "The purpose of the Student Council is to create for the welfare of our school a closer relationship between the faculty and the student body, and a spirit of co-operation between the organizations of the Academy." Richard Dennison was elected president of the organization, Vickery Hub- bard, vice-president, and Frances Aldrich, secretary. Although few weighty problems have been brought to the council this year, it has been able to serve the school in giving the student reaction to program changes, in supervising the collection of a fund for a hose to be used on our tennis courts and hockey rink, in managing our part in the Lincoln's Birthday entertainment given us by The Loyal Legion, and in determining the rules for the use of our tennis courts. 64 . -4 I6 i ' v THE SENIOR DANCE The Senior Dance was held at the Neighborhood Club of Quincy on the evening of April twenty-ninth. The hall was cleverly decorated with Thayer banners, and music was rendered by Phil Murphy and his orchestra. In the re- ceiving line were Mr. and Mrs. Southworth, Miss Allen, Mr. and Mrs. Hilton, Mr. Lane, Hamilton Hutton, class president, and Madelen Perry, vice-president. The untiring efforts of the committee. consisting of the class officers, Hamilton Hutton, president, Madelen Perry, Vice-president, Carolyn Dana, secretary, and Frank Remick, treasurer, made the dance a great success. THE SENIOR BANQUET The Senior Banquet was held this year, as last, at the New Ocean House at Swampseott on Wednesday, June fifteenth. The class and faculty motored down, leaving at about eleven, and ate their lunches on the way. In the after- noon, swimming. golf, and tennis were participated in until rain made bridge inside more feasible. At the banquet, at which Hamilton Hutton, class president, was toastmaster, Mr. Southworth spoke. also Mr. Litchfield for the trustees, and Mr. Abercrombie for the alumni. Mr. Monroe rendered some delightful selections. After the banquet, dancing until nearly midnight proved a suitable end of a perfect day. THE ALUMNI BANQUET The Alumni Banquet was held on the evening of Commencement Day, Juno eighteenth. in the Braintree Town Hall. The speakers of the evening were Mr. Southworth and Mr. Barbour, introduced by Mr. Abercrombie. Cheers were given by the class of 727 for preceding classes whose m'embers were present. After the banquet there was dancing in the main auditorium. FACULTY TEAS The first. of the Faculty Teas was held on Friday afternoon, October fourteenth, for the parents of the members of the Senior Class. Tea was served in the library, with Mrs. Southworth and Mrs. Hilton pouring, and girls from the Senior Class assisting. On the afternoon of October twenty-first, the second faculty tea was held for the parents of all the new students in the Academy. Miss Gcmniel and lXIiss Allen served tea, with girls from Classes Three and Four assisting. 65 -. , . lr., , , ,M..,..,,.,.,., R awe es f -A ws -4 A .Q--.A mf if 4. 0...

The stunts performed by each class and the one by the teachers were the cause of much hilarity-especially that arranged by Class Two, whose members turned last years tables by a clever "take-off" on the faculty. Having enjoyed stunts and dancing, everyone adjourned to the lunehroom to be refreshed with cider and cookies. SENIOR MIDDLE RECEPTION The Neighborhood Club of Quincy was the scene of the Senior Middle Dance this year-festively decorated for the occasion with Thayer banners, black and orange streamers, and many-colored balloons. The dance, which was held on Tuesday evening, November twenty-fifth, was a delightful affair, thanks to the diligent efforts of the committee: Jack Kelley, Mae Lord, Herbert Lewis, Thurleta Torrey, Edward Ruggles, Herbert Cleaves, Gilbert White, and David Way. The music was furnished by Freddie Smith and his orchestra. Balloon and elimination dances added to the enjoyment of the evening. In the receiving line were Mr. and Mrs. Southworth, Miss Gemmel, Miss Sleeper, Mr. Lane, Herbert Lewis, president, and Helen Coe, vice-president. FOOTBALL RECEPTION The Football Reception, held at the Neighborhood Club of Quincy on Friday evening, December sixteenth, terminated most satisfactorily an unusually suc- cessful football season. The team, especially its captain, Paul Benson, strove not in vain to plan a dance equal to the occasion. Phil Murphy and his orches- tra furnisbed the music. In the receiving line were Mr. and Mrs. Southworth, Mrs. Benson, Mr. and Mrs. Barbour, and Mr. and Mrs. Hincks. During the evening the gold footballs were presented to the team by Mr. Hincks, and Harvey Miller was announced as the captain for next year. Following this, Captain Paul Benson presented Mr. Southworth and Mr. Hincks with gold footballs. Dick Dennison led cheers for the team, for the two captains, the old and the new, and for Mr. Southworth and Mr. Hincks. All in all, it was a true Thayer party. 66 X LIS TQ THE ORCHESTRA Under the painstaking guidance of Mrs. Kells, the orchestra has made rapid progress during the past year. . The organization has made two appearances this year: one on Washington's Birthday, and the other, more successful by far, at the Senior Middle Play. There are still many ragged edges which can be trimmed off by constant practice, but all in all, the squeaks and groans which characterized our earliest attempts have been transformed into something which bears a strong resemblance to good music. The orchestra has gained recognition as a permanent part of the school curriculum. VVe new practice during a regular period of school time, in the assembly hall, and send a representative to the Student Council. 67 . ,,.. - .- - .,1.--... , r xifrnuwm- .,,-, ,-1-Lqfrgr-Q ' -f V-J Q .1 .sf . , , 1, , -. ., .. . .,, kg-.1 1 ,.,..

" A THE GLEE CLUB The Glee Club, under the leadership of Mr. Monroe, meets in the Assembly Hall every Monday morning directly after chapel. There for about half an hour, hard, earnest practicing is carried on in order that the Glce Club may bring credit to the school Whenever it appears in public. Tuesday, January third, forty members of the Club, selected by Mr. Monroe, Went after school to the Coehato Club, to sing for the Philergians, the Braintree Women's Club. The numbers presented Were: A Dream Boat, To Arms, and Wakcn, Lords and Ladies Gay. Many favorable comments were received by the school for the excellent performance. NOW the Glee Club is Working very hard on the program for its spring con- cert. Contrary to the usual custom, the concert will be given this year by the Thayer Academy Glee Club alone and not in collaboration with any other musical club. This is an experiment, consequently, everyone interested in the Club sincerely hopes that it will be a success. 68 ,,o'nIlig.H-TTT' Y I 2TT'11ullf:L .Iflii:lii"'i':'f. , in 'luql nl''1isl'ii'iil'ili'1'!i.lfI1 .,i- ,, f . . wi Q. vi i ,we A i avi l .fum C'-lllll my aw 'i-ml My R 'H' HHH' IH gl Q A The Theta Alpha Club has been active during the year, by continuing the work for which it was formed, the promotion of good fellowship and co-operation among the senior girls.

I , 'xi It f THETA ALPHA DRAMATICS On the afternoon of January thirteenth the Theta Alpha Club presented in the Assembly Hall a one-act phantasy, "The lVonder Hat," by Ben Heeht. The play was introduced by a prologue given by Velma Batclielder, musical selections by the orchestra, a clarionet solo by Hawthorne Brown, and a dance by Vickery Hubbard. In the play Punehinello, the old peddler, sells to Harlequin the wonder hat, and to Columbine, Cinderclla's old slipper so they can find their Knew loves for old." Many complications arise from the eharaetters' wearing the hat and slipper. This play was the clubls greatest undertaking. The well-portrayed char- acters, the picturesque costumes, the natural scenery of evergreens, the charm of the play combined to make our entertainment successful. Miss Gemmel directed us, and Marcel Noyes and .lolm Hagen greatly assisted the stage committee. The Cast PIERROT ,...... ,...l.... ,......... . , . fvfIllIlf'l'l'Ilf? Searle HIXRLEQUIN ,.,. A ..

Richard Winslow, the youngest of a large family and rather "different" is hounded continually by his family, especially by his two older brothers. The impositions continue until Richard hardly dares to call his soul his own, when the advent of a certain Nancy Blake changes affairs considerably. Realizing that he needs someone to give him self-confidence and applause in place of the continued nagging to which he has always been subject, Nancy starts her secret campaign-and she succeeds, too, in the end. The tables are radically turned and Richard becomes the "boss" of the household instead of the oppressed-and he also discovers that Nancy loves him and he loves her. A clever comprehension of their parts was shown by the whole cast and the keen appreciation of the audience proved that another well-earned success had been added to Thayer's list of dramatic achievements.

Tell you about it? Of course. "Well, to start at the beginning ' tandsome 'arry Kingman' as he is some- times called, came onto the courts of the South Side Tennis Olub that day in his usual fashion. Laughing and joking' with those around him, he was seem- ingly unconscious of the approaching struggle. However, just before he served the first ball, I saw him glance up into the stands. There, smiling back at him, was Miss-er-you know whom I mean, that girl he goes with. Yes, thatfs she, Judge Kenyonfs daughter, Marjorie. On the other side of the net Bill Seymour was also casting admiring glances at Marjorie. I slid forward onto the front of my seat. 'Herc,' I told myself, 'is to be a battle of the giants., 'fHarry served the first ball, and the intercollegiate tennis finals were on. For the next hour I witnessed perhaps the best tennis I had ever seen. At the end of that time the score stood two sets to one in favor of Harry, The fourth set had come to forty-thirty. One more point and Harry would be collegiate champion. He drew himself up to his full height and drove a beautiful cannon- ball service to Seymour's Court. Stepping into it like Babe Ruth hitting a home run, Seymour returned the ball with every ounce of his strength, over the net it came, straight for the very baseline. Kingman let it go. Ah, he had Won! There was the mark a fraction of an inch outside the baseline. He turned to shake hands with the loser, but spun around, as if he had been shot, to hear the referee repeat, fThe ball was good, the score is deucef With a snarl of 'IVhat!' Harry slung his racket. It hit the net post with a crash and fell to earth, the expensive frame cracked in half. Then in a death-like silence, Harry walked over tof the net, picked up the racket, and procuring another one, resumed play. You know the rest,-how Harry went to pieces, losing the match with a love set. And oh, by the way, as I was leaving the grounds I saw Miss Kenyon strolling off with Seymour. NVcll, as the old saying goes: 'To the victor belong the spoils' " ...............,.........................,.................,......................,....................,,.,..........,.,,..... A year passed. Harry Kingman was again in the finals of the intercollegiate tennis tournament, and again on the further side of the net was Seymour. At the first service, as Harry threw the ball into the air, something shiny in the stands reflected in his eyes. Letting the ball drop, he stared at the gallery. There, nearly opposite the middle of the net, with a diamond brooch at her neck, sat the one girl whom he had tried all year to avoid, Marjorie Kenyon. Had she come to see him play? He wondered. Discouragingly he told himself that of course she had not. She was still disappointed in him because of his actions last year. Stepping back out of the line of reflection of the brooch, Harry served again and the game was on, but Harry's mind was on the girl in the stands. Finally. with the score two sets to nothing against him, he remembered the advice of Tilden, 'tlVhen youfre losing steadily change your style and take chances." Tearing his mind away from everything but tennis, by sheer force he volleyed his way to the net. Wfith crushing forehands and accurate backhands he cross- courted his opponent, driving first to the left hand corner, then to the right. Un- able to overcome this furious onslaught, Seymour dropped back three-five-ten feet and lobbed over Kingman's head. Making a superb recovery, Harry drove 76 Efq M -- 'J -.cg .xQ5:.hx,, :A Wx A N 4 fx,--nf: . ,,, as A ,G-,Y x 1 fs. 4 I ,,.

Again came the impulse to hurl his racket, but he only gripped it tighter and fought on. Once more he beat his way to the net, literally driving the heart out of his opponent. The score changed to two all. Then Seymour, with that quality which has made the symbol of the sons of Eli a sturdy bull dog, rallied and brought the final set to four-five in games, the game to fifteen-forty in his favor. Harry served and leaped to the net. Seymour fell back and tried to lob over Kingman's head. The lob was low. Leaping high in the air, Harry crashed the ball past his opponent for the point. The crowd gasped. The play was startling! It had been a wonderful shot. As his racket swung down. Harry felt it touch the net. He started to lose his temper, but quickly checked himself. No one had seen him hit the net. The referee had given him the point which should have gone to his opponent. He picked up the balls and started to the baseline, his mind a jumble of one wild thought after another. If he lost the next point, he would lose the ehampionship, if he won it, he would tie the game. Should he play the part of a sportsinan and give the next point to Seymour? He hesitated for a momentg then served the first ball. "Outl" called the referee, the second ball,-'fflutll' repeated the referee: "Match goes to Mr. Seymour." As Harry walked back to the locker room alone, his mind pictured the people in the stands. Even now Marjorie was probably thinking he had been unable to stand the pace. What was the use of being a good sport? As this question ran through his mind, he felt an arm slip through his, a hand clasp it- self in his, and turning his head saw the setting sun sparkle in the diamond brooch beside him. There flashed to his mind the words he had heard from the lips of a great sportsman, t'For when the One Great Scorer comes to mark against your name, He writes-not that you won or lost-but how you played the game." Herbert Cleaves, 1929. FOG From my apartment window I could see below me Fourteenth Street, enveloped In a thick blanket of fog, Deadening the senses. Through it the street lamps tried In vain to penetrate- Failing to throw euen the most uncertain gleam Across the dark, damp pavement. All was cozy within: A crackling fire, clink of tea cups, the casual Talk of friends, and long, Unembarrassed silences. Into one of these crept The horrid, minor moan Of a harbor fog-horn- Again and get again raising Its ghostly wail In desolate, harrowing warning.

Quincy is also noted for its large shipbuilding industry made possible through the Bethlehem Ship- building Corporation, and for its numerous quarries of syenite granite, the most durable stone for construction purposes known to mankind. However, Quincy is also distinguished as being the birthplace of one of the greatest, one of the most useful, and by far the most extensive means of transportation in this country, namely the railroad. On October 7, 1826, the first railroad in America was opened at Quincy, under the direction of Gridley Bryant, cars laden with granite were drawn by horses from the Bunker Hill Quarry to the Neponset River, a distance of two and three-quarters miles. Although this invention may today seem very simple and artless, nevertheless Gridley Bryant would never succeeded in constructing this crude railroad had it not been for the patriotic cause for which it was intended. It may seem strange a century later, but Gridley Bryant was con- sidered visionary and far beyond his times when he proposed this means of transporting granite. It is sometimes believed this railroad was the first in the world as well as in America, but this opinion is incorrect, for a form of railroad had been intro- duced into England over a hundred years before. Early in the eighteenth cen- tury it was found convenient to place wooden planks over several much used wagon-ways between the mines and thc river Tyne in Newcastle, England, for the heavy coal wagons made such deep ruts during the rainy season that the roads were nearly impassablc. Soon, however, it was noticed that these boards, which were being used as rails, were not very durable, so strips of iron were spiked to these boards. This remedy was found to be impractical, therefore through necessity a crude form of an iron rail was invented. However, the fact that this means of transportation had been known in England before this time does not make the glory of the Granite railroad any less, for it was in Quincy that this industry was first introduced into America, and it was here that its possibilities were first realized by the progressive Ameri- can people. Therefore it is just as important that the history of the railroad which awakened the people to the advantages of this new development in travel should be cited, as that of the original railway. In 1823 several of the most prominent men in Massachusetts formed a Bunker Hill Monument Association. They secured a charter and agreed that they should supervise the building of a fitting monument to commemorate the Battle of Bunker Hill. The work of the association progressed rapidly, by Octo- ber, 1825, the committee, having by popular subscription raised a sufficient amount of money to commence work, gave Solomon Willard, the recently elected architect of the association, authority to start the construction of the monument. After much research Mr. XVillard finally selected a large quarry in the western part of Quincy, the granite of which he considered suitable for the 78 , -fl' V- . , . . r s 1r. ....v, T an ---u-,uc'.1 :xr-C' ng, as-:,:,m1,y,f4,gx-' 1,3-:gg u gt, f..,'.-I ' W .,..!.:'1 -gl, fgjr -' .1--'.,.

Mr. Willard was very fortunate in securing this quarry, for he was able to purchase it from Gridley Bryant for only three- hundred and twenty-five dollars, although it was valued at sixty thousand dollars. However, Mr. Bryant was much more greatly involved in this great project than merely to sell the quarry, for the task of transporting the granite was placed upon his shoulders. After many impossible theories had been proposed to him, he finally decided that the granite could be carried most economically and practically by a railroad from the Bunker Hill Quarry to the tidewater of the Neponset River and from there transported to Charlestown by barges. With this intent in mind Mr. Bryant carefully drew up plans and drawings of his proposed project, and consulted many prominent men, among whom were Colonel Perkins, Amos Lawrence, and Solomon Willard. These men were little interested, but they agreed to see what could be done. After many delays and a great deal of trouble they succeeded, March 4, 1826, in obtaining a charter to build the proposed railroad. After the charter was obtained, work progressed very rapidlyg and the first car passed over the route on October 7, 1826. The greatest difiiculty which confronted Gridley Bryant after he had obtained a charter, was to find a way to carry the granite from the quarry itself to the beginning of the railroad. However, Mr. Bryant surmountcd this ditliculty as he had the others which had presented themselves during the construction of the railroad. At the quarry end he constructed a steep track, up and down which the cars were moved by a stationary engine. From the top of this incline track the main railroad sloped toward the river, making it possible for two horses to draw a load of forty tons. The tracks of this railroad were five feet apart and attached to granite sleepers eight feet apart. On this foundation wooden rails were laid to which strips of iron were nailed. This form of track proved so sub- stantial that it cost only ten dollars a year to keep it in order during the con- struction of the monument. This road, combined with the substantial eight wheeled cars which Mr. Bryant invented, proved capable of carrying a load of over ten tons. This crude railway, which would never have been built had it not been for the patriotic cause for which it was intended, proved the turning point of an improved means of transportation which has revolutionized the entire industrial world. Thus through necessity there was originated in the small town of Newcastle, and developed in Quincy, one of the greatest industries in the world. Di-,vin R. CLTTLER, 1928.

The rippling water glearns with wealth untold, No thoughts of darkness on its glory frown, And as the ball of fire sinks farther down, We gaze in wonder as the day grows old. A cold gray cloud hangs low urithin the west, The sun sinks slowly back of all this gloom, Phoebus has driven his chariotts daily tread, His jiery steeds are weary and seek rest, From the same path which led to Phaethon's doom. Alas! this path of gold has turned to lead. JoHN HOLLIS, '28 79 ,.. . ,... ..-,..,...,,. ' .

Many men who seem rather insignificant on slight acquaintance appear truly noble when their character is known. Although everyone regards Lincoln as a great man, no one can really appreciate him unless he understands his character and the part played by circumstances in shaping and unfolding it. For this reason, every American citizen should study Lincoln's life in order to comprehend fully its true significance. In his boyhood Lincoln had fcyv opportunities of obtaining an education of even the rudest sort. Yet, such was his earncstness that he eagerly took advan- tage of every chance that came his way of storing up scraps of knowledge. During the plowing season, at the end of each furrow, he would stop to sit on a stump and read. He used all the odds and ends of paper that he could find for writing essays, and since paper was very scarce in the Lincoln household, he developed a concise style that was very useful in after life. Yet, although his 'Gettysburg Address" is a masterpiece of English literature, his whole schooling put together amounted to less than one year. His perseverance in learning was remarkable. He even peruscd the 'fRevised Statutes of Indiana," as dry and uninteresting a volume as one can imagine. All during his boyhood he used every spare minute for reading. When he became older, he worked in a "cross roadsu store. Even there he kept his insatiable longing for books, but he wanted to sec more of the country in which he was living. This desire was partially satisfied when he worked his passage down the Mississippi River as a flat-boat hand. It was at New Orleans that he saw the slave auction that made a lasting impression on him. His opinions of slavery were formed at that time. On his return he went back to his old job. Later, he set up in business with a partner. Between his partner, who spent most of his time drinking, and Lincoln himself, who spent most his time reading and studying law, the business went to pieces, and Lincoln was left burdened with a load of debts. Under the circumstances they could have been properly discharged through the Bankruptcy Court, yet he chose to carry the debts through fifteen years of strugglle and self- denial until he had succeeded in paying off the last penny. Even before Lincoln became a lawyer, he had gained a great reputation for fairness and honesty, and during his law practice this increased. He would never take a case unless he was sure he was in the right, and he was known to leave a case, even during a trial, when he found out that he was wrong. He refused to defend personal friends if he saw that the right was on the other side. Whenever he was aroused, he displayed such feeling and fervor that his hearers were astounded. At this time his sweetheart, Ann Rutledge, died. For a time after her death he lost all interest in everything. His friends feared for his reason, but after a while he recovered from his morbid depression. However, this marked a turning point in his life. He was no longer "Abe" Lincoln but Abraham Lincoln. During his political campaigns he revealed great moral courage. He fear- lessly stood up against slavery, although at that time it seemed as if he were throwing away all his chances for advancement. His innate sense of justice could never allow him to refuse anyone who appealed to his compassion. 80 r A milf-4"f'-D 45 ri :Z E ? , .av get M . ..'.1w X A - ff 1 ' -H - ,514 X ,I A. 4 ,, Q ' ' '-'cw . ,- 'L, .

He understood the common people and their point of view because he had grown up with them. He knew that they received ideas slowly and that time must be taken to prepare their minds for innovations. His foresight enabled him to plan ahead and provide for future contingencies. lVhen he believed he was in tl1e right, he withstood all entreaties. Once he had definitely decided on a course of action, neither friend nor foe could turn him aside. Even during tl1e troubled years of the war he could tell humorous stories and jokes, yet, in a moment, his expression would turn to one of the deepest sadness and melancholy. Abraham Lincoln lived a life of contrasts. Although he could not bear to hurt anyone, he was obliged to lead a whole nation into bloody war. He was a humble, unpretentious man, yet he held the most powerful and conspicuous position that our country has to offer. He was looked down upon because of his simple, countrified words and phrases, yet he wrote one of the most beautiful speeches in the English language. He was the best friend that the South had, yet he was assassinated because a fanatic took him for its worst enemy. Every one of Lincolnls qualities of greatness was his by inheritance and personal achievement, and his character would have been the same whether this Worth was seen and recognized by men or not. Except for the maturing of his powers with experience and responsibility, Lincoln was as great in Springfield as in Washington. He would have been an exceptional man if he had lived and died in obscurity. Greatness, therefore, in his case was not due to cireumstaneesg it was an achievement accomplished by one who had the earnestncss for it and who was prepared to undergo the discipline that goes with it. As Irving Bacheller has said, he is a man for the ages. ARTHUR BAKER, '20, REACTION A hill top in spring, Bursting buds everywhere, A thousand happy cries. Joy.

Forres, Scotland April 23, 1605. Dear friend Burbage: Having been in this Scotland for some weary weeks I do think of England with the spring on and do wish me back and would be so it 'twere not for the event going on so under my nose that it would bring shame on me as the writer of the plays for our theater if I, seeing its possibilities, did not stay me here to record the mentioned event, namely the trial of that one-time king of Scotland, Macbeth. This trial has now been going on for some days and the jurors do deliberate lengthyly, restrained by the dignity of their office from being as quick as I, and no doubt Macbeth, would like. But I, being but a poor player with no weight of office on me, did decide and truly, I think, before this trial were but a half over. Let me set it down to you, James, that I for my part do believe Macbeth as guilty of the death of the murdered king Duncan as though I should, verily, see the blood of the poor man on his hands. It does seem to me that it would be contrary to nature that a man play not foul e'en his best friend when the cards of fate are stacked for him and his mind so turned by the prediction of good fortune turned truth that all possibili- ties seem ready to change to realities if he but play the cards before him. Canst thou not see, Burbage, this general, returning with all the glories of a successful battle and the witches giving their weird predictions? The defence does assert that he, Macbeth, did meet such weird sisters and whether or no he did, it is no great matter, we'll use them at any rate since they will lend atmos- phere to the play if nothing else. Then next we have the murder of Duncan by Macbeth and although the defense did say that Macbeth was led on and aided by one Banque, I do consider that 'twill be best in my play to make of him so completely different a man as to make him seem full wise and good and of such a strong will that he will serve as a foil for Macbeth who could not resist the temptation they both were met with. If we do need an accomplice in the deed why do we not use Lady Macbeth ? It is to my thinking more than possible that she did aid her husband since it came out in the trial that she did come to her death by "self and violent hands" and that, according to the testimony of the doctor and the waiting maid of her ladyship, before her death she did things which were passing strange, that she did walk, still sleeping, and spoke of awful things. Think you not that there is good reason for using her in the play as the helper? They went on then to prove to us that Macbeth e'en after he had that which he did desire, namely the kingship. he did keep on in his murderous way and that the home of every man that did oppose him was unsafe. There was no peace at all in Scotland 'till Malcolm came and Macbeth was dethroned. Ah! well, my friend, it is all a passing' strange show that I have watched these past days, and there be some, I warrant, who will, when my labor is done, my tale told on the stage, scoff and say that such a play could come only from an idiot player's head and then they will forget the whole. Could they see me now they would not say so, eh, Burbage? For I do puzzle my poor brain and work of nights and I should soon be back to you and the company, if all goes well. In the meantime-Good health to you and best of luck attend you in your present venture, whatever it may be. Your friend and playwright, William Shakespeare. VIRGINIA RICHMOND, l29. 83 P 'fra S!

We should not, cannot, will not toler- ate it. In times past such a plea was not considered as legal, and was, if recog- nized as fraud, a reason for more severe punishment on the part of the state. Shall we permit such a person as this Macbeth, the slaughterer of children, the assassinlator of friends, the betrayer and usurper of trusts, to thus play upon our sympathies? I hark back to the case of People vs. Hurleigh. In that case, the bold and arrogant self-confessed murdere1', contrary to all custom, was acquitted of the charge of murder through a plea of insanity. Three months later he was en- gaged in such great plunderings and murders throughout the kingdom that all resources of the state could hardly cope with his activities. lf that is what we desire, let us acquit Macbeth, recompense him for his wicked imprisonment, and hold him in honor as a martyr among us. If, however, you want to keep your lives, your liberty, the lives of your wives and children, this beautiful country of ours free from sacrilage and rapine, convict Macbeth, and in no uncertain terms pro- claim your opinion throughout our beautiful Scotland as an announcement of the rebirth of sacred liberty among us. ' Yes, gentlemen of the jury, he has been a noble hero. He has fought for his country, he has defeated a foreign enemy and subdued a rebel lord, but was he not richly rewarded for these deeds? Therefore, noble judges, is not his downfall all the more to be deplored, since he attacked the body of him who honored him? Yet, his most capable lawyer attempts to prove by his witnesses that Macbeth has had, at different times, spasms of insanity. Well and good, let us make a concession, let us consider the plea of insanity legal and let Macbeth's actions explain his plea by answering these questions. Could an insane man have carried on his part after murdering the late king as calmly as Macbeth car- ried on? Could an insane man so deliberately and carefully have gone about the sacking of his country, could a mind mentally unbalanced undertake, to the last punctilious step, the arrangement of the late Banquo's death? And yet that most illustrious rogue, that most heroic murderer, that most beloved ravager wishes us to accept his plea as true! Let us make still another concession, let us even admit he was insane! Now then, let Macbeth explain how he became insane. He is silent, his illustrious lawyer is silent, he fMacbethJ cringes with fear, is lifeless. Why? Because the only things that could make him insane, in truth, are his murdering of trust- ing friends, his slaughtering of helpless ones, his sacking of this most beautiful country of ours, and his robbing of the widowed. That is why, gentlemen of the jury, our most beloved and most respected harasser is unable to answer these simple questions of a pillaged people. Yet his most illustrious counsel, who sits in my sight, rises to the greatest heights of oratory to tell us that Macbeth, a poor haunted man, harassed by the image of Duncan, murdered by his hands, made sleepless by the ghost of Banquo, assassinated through his plans, perpetually troubled by the death of his fellow arch-conspirator and fiend, his wife, has come to this merciful bar of justice to play upon the sympathy of us who have lost through his wickedness, home, wives, children, everything which is dear to our hearts. 85 '32 r N "4 ' ' " 'MW -'-C -' ' .f.'3'.2'.'-'JA' .. 4-I-any ' P TAL'-f JU- ' '-,S VS' laws 'ar is -1 .l 9 .5 9 1.4224 '1 . :ti Q .nw-1-5-:ir 1 .. nf?"

I hear silence throughout the court roomy I hear no murmur of dissent, I hear no one pleading that Macbeth be freed to once more plunder our homes. Let us turn back the annals of law to the times of ancient Rome for a reason for dispelling all dissents if such should even be imagined. Did Cicero, that most patriotic and beloved consul, hesitate to attack, the massed forces of the profligate aristocratsg did he hesitate to accuse Cataline in no uncertain terms, at risk of his position, property, life itself? Then shall We in Words of glory fear to put to death Macbeth, to gain eternal peace and pros- pcrity for our beautiful country and safety for our wives and children, at risk of nothing? Therefore, remembering your noble birth and high positions, noble gentle- men of the jury, deliberate among yourselvesg think of the crimes of Macbeth, of his false plea of insanity, his attempted play on the sympathies of you most merciful men who have lost so much by his plotsg and then make your just and glorious decision which will forevermore make our beautiful country free for you and me. -WARREN L. CLAFF. DREAM PICTURES Of the things that I love, There is one above all others- I love to lie, stretched on the sandy floor of earth's palace, And stare, unblinhing, at her spacious ceiling. Until--after a little-I see my dreams in pictures. White blotches on blue canvas make my pictures. I sometimes, dreaming fairy dreams, see faces there, Perhaps the dear image of someone far away, Whom in my longing I've brought home again, But not to linger long with me, for then My picture, captured by a cloud, is borne away, And though I search in every corner of my canopy, I know my dreams are gone until another day.

LINDBERGH O thou undaunted spirit from the West, Winging through mist and snow of Northern air, What ivaslt, O youth, that led thee thus to dare? What mighty poieer brought thee through thy test? What auiful passion spurred thee in. thy quest When thou didlst feel the Clutch of cold despair, And cool discretion bade thee to forbear And turn thy fleeting plane back to thc West? Art thou but Valourls minion, to have uron? Or Fortunes favored fool to gain thy goal? Was it blind Chance or a deerec of Fate That thou inay'st snzile now that thy trial is done? Nay, braife spirit, not these sustained thy soul, But the omniscient Cod, irho was thy flyingniiate. VVINIFRED VAN RAALTE, '28. 93 ' ' A ,,.J ,.

JAMES AVENUE CAB E ADDRESS INSURANCE ADVISER L R E 'rv-eosssEAns aosrou Bo STON ASSOCMTED 'NDUST ' Our every day life becomes more complex and our dependence one upon another becomes more marked with each improvement in our mode of living. This increasing responsibility is ameliorated through the medium of insurance by the distribution of the losses of the few over the many. Insurance is now a necessity in the economic structure of our country. Life insurance guarantees the education of the children, the continuity of the home and a compe- tency in old age. Casualty insurance in its many branches protects and indemnifies you for the increas- ing accidents and catastrophes preventable and non- preventable, common to our race today. Fire and marine insurance provides funds for the replacement of destroyed or damagedlproperty, the loss of which might otherwise cause serious embarrassment. To carry on today without insurance is Hying in the face of Providence. This oflice is equipped to supply every kind of insurance needed, Whether it be an all risk jewelry policy covering world wide, or smaller personal needs, or whether it be more intricate insurance problems connected with the larger industrial plants. We are insuring at the present time property in almost every civilized country in the world. It is.our endeavor to buy the best insurance for the least money. We solicit an opportunity to satisfy you that we are competent to accomplish this result. THOMAS E. SEARS, INC. 102 P , . , . .

When Jim smiles, There's little room For anything at all like gloom, The whole world's just one wide-spread grin When Jim smiles. Great boy-Jim!

Consider how dairy and orchard, tropie grove and garden --all yield of their best to give variety to this healthful dish. lVorld-wide nutrition authorities say of ice cream: It is a valuable food, containing vitamins essential to health and growth. Blineral matter necessary for building bones and teeth. Butter fat and sugar for energy and bodily heat. Since it contains all the food elements of milk, ice cream can be classed as a protective food. lt should be used throughout the year because of its food value. lee Cream is not only a food for all seasons but for all ages. lnvalids, too, are often given this easily assimilated food when nothing else tempts. For children, ice cream is a nutritious, digestible and palatable food. It is rich in bone building material, supplying energy and food elements that protect :against disease. Ice cream should be considered as another way of getting children to eat the milk and butter fat they need. Mothers can answer their childrents desire for ice cream with confidence, knowing that it has an important place in the balanced diet on which largely depends a strong body and an elert mind-the birthright of every child. Our trade-mark guarantees the kind of lee Cream you are glad to buy again and again. HOOKER BROS. Tel. Randolph 46OfW School Street, Holbrook, Mass. Established 1845 QUINCY SAVINGS BANK H.
