EAVING Tiltouls old campus
buoyant, happy chapter of
Four years we have spent in the
the tower-carefree, careless years
we close a

memories of these days, which will always
find a warm place in our hearts, is the pur-

Our Sophomore year was much the same as our freshman year except
that we felt more sure of ourselves. Many of us probably ventured to
call Mr. Smart, "Freddie,' and Mr. Plimpton, 'LPlimp". Yes, we were
much more daring. So much so that we suffered many penalties from
Then in our Junior year we gave our first "prom"! It was quite a
thrill to say the least, because being a Junior was one more step up the
ladder that led to graduation. VVe gave the Seniors their banquet and
then stayed during Commencement to see just what a graduating class
looked like. Vile got full view of their inflated chests and swore that
we would never be so!
Now we are Seniors. We have been here four years. Even though
we have been homesick, have been marked unfairly, and put on campus,
we will miss Tilton. VVe can no longer say-"Meet me at Lords." Or,
"l'll see you in Doc 's. " All we can say is'-"I'll see you at the reunion."
Or, "I'll be back for the Carnival, and if not then, for Commencement."
NVe have reached the top step of our school ladder. VVe shall now step
off into College or into the world to make our living!

We elected class officers: Edgar Sykes of Lawrence, Mass., as president:
Mary Bartlett of Sunapee, N. H., as vice-president, Evelyn Seavey of
Kennebunkport, Maine, as Secretary, and Robert Page of New Haven,
Conn., as treasurer. Each member of the class has done his part in mak-
ing school activities successful. Our first real victory was the Junior
Dance, which took place on Thanksgiving night 1925 with great success.
Everyone worked hard, but felt well repaid by the good time afforded
the other classes. The class also helped to make the IIallowe'en Mas-
querade a "go", and decorated a booth which, although it did not bring
the prize, seemed to be the most popular in several ways.
The Juniors are also Well represented in athletics. Many of the stars
of the football, basketball, baseball and ice hockey teams belong to this
class, as Well as many of the girls on the field hockey and girls' basketball
This is not all the Junior Class has done, but the rest we will save until
next year, hoping that by that time all the present members, as Well as
many new students, will be here to make the class the best that has ever
graduated from Tilton School.

were taken over by the more intimate duty of studies, and the remainder
of our Freshman year was spent in putting our class before the notice
of the upper classmen.
In the fall of 1925 we elected Warren Holmander for our president and
we were launched on our second year at Tilton. The personal feelings
of the class were much easier than they had been the previous year and
we took part in all the school activities with great interest. Many of our
number represented the school on the athletic field, and in social life we
made a very good record for ourselves.
We first caused public notice early in the year 1924. Since then it
has been impossible to keep out of the limelight. ' Although we have a
modest class we venture to say that when we graduate from Tilton we will
be the envy of all those who know us. VVE ARE THE CLASS OF 1928!

THE "T " CLUB.
The "T" Club is without doubt the most exclusive organization
ton School. Its membership is limited to those who have won t'
eted "T" in one or more varsity sports.
The purpose of the club is to raise money to help defray expe
curred on the gridiron and in other forms of athletics. In orde
complish this purpose, the members of the club give, in the gym
an entertainment known as the "T" Club Circus. This enterta
is strictly a money making scheme, so admission is charged at th4
a fee is also charged for everything that is inside the gym. It is
circus that the "T" Club queen is elected. The girl that is lucky
to be elected to this honor is given a permanent membership in tk
Club. The queen for the school year of 1925-1926 was Rebecca
It is a distinct honor to be a member of this club, as it is an honor
the "T" of Tilton.
This year and during the past years the club has been very su
in raising money with which to heal the broken bones and other

The football season of 1925 was an even break for Tilton. We won
four games, lost three, and tied one at 0-0. Theschool lost the objective
game of the season to Colby, but the season is not to be considered as a
failure. The other defeats of the year came from Brewster, N. H. U. '29,
and the 0-0 tie came in the K. U. A. game. Tilton won from Sanborn
Seminary, New Hampton, Pinkerton and Holderness.
The first game of the season was played with Sanborn Seminary. This
team was one of Tilton's rivals and was reputed to be of extraordinary
strength. Rumors, however, did not effect the fighting strength of our
team, and Tilton emerged from the fray with a 10-0 victory tucked under
her belt. The second game of the season was with New Hampton. Last
year this school was able to defeat Tilton through the use of several "ring-
ers," and the local boys were determined not to let this happen again.
Consequently, Tilton won the contest by the score of 9-0. These first
two games of the season showed that Tilton had a team which could not be
laughed at and the prospects of a brilliant season were bright, The third
game was at Meriden, the home of K. U. A. This game was a very dis-
appointing one for Tilton. The score was 0-0 and was the result of a
poorly balanced team.
The next game of the season was to be the main attraction of the year.
It was with Colby Academy at New London. The result of this game, as
has already been stated, was a defeat for Tilton. Perhaps the cause of
the defeat was over-confidence, our boys might have been outplayed in any
case. The final result of the contest was Colby, 14, Tilton, 0. This de-
feat had a disheartening effect on our team and we lost to Brewster, 7-3.
The next game was with the New Hampshire State Freshmen. Coach
Weston decided to use some of his second string men in this contest as it
was not a preparatory school game and wou1dn't be to our discredit if
lost. The Tilton team Showed up very well and held the Wildcat Fresh-
men to the comparatively low score of 15-0. Our team next went to Der-
56 TIIE TOWER
CAPTAIN RUSSIGIA1 CA1"1'AlN-I+1I.Ee'1' NYICIASUN
ry where they were to meet the strong Pinkerton Academy eleven. The
result of this game was more favorable to Tilton, the home team winning
by the score of 6-0. .lt was a lucky break which threw victory i11to our
hands. 'gliedn Collin, who was playing guard for the school, recovered
a fumble and, aided by a good interference, ran the length of the field for
the only score of the game. The last game of the season was played at
Tilton with Holderness School. Our boys were determined to cover them-
selves with glory in this game and under the generalship of Earle Sands
the team worked like a well-oiled machine. The final score of the game
was Ilolderness, 0, Tilton, 31.
The season cannot be termed an entire success, because the principle
game of the year was lost to Colbyg however, much praise is due the mem-
bers of the team, and much credit is due Coach Weston for his untiring
eftorts to develop a team of which Tilton could be proud.

Prospects for a successful team this season were not very good at the be-
ginning of the Fall term of school, as most of last year's me11 had graduated.
The first meet of the seaso11 was with the strong N. IL U. '29 at Dur-
ham. We lost by a score of 37-18. The next meet was also lost to
Colby Academy by the close score of 27-28. The outlook at this time
of the season seemed to be darker than ever and, with only two more meets
before the team, they entered a period of strenuous training to develop
a strong team. This seemed almost impossible. The next meet was with
Brewster Academy and the result of this set-to was more favorable to our
boys. We won by the score of 40-15. This was a perfect score.
The last meet of the season was with Pinkerton Academy and was for
the championship of the state. In this meet, Nichols. who had been here-
tofore in the last place, was the dark horse of the meet. He won the race,
and by doing so broke the record for the course, and established a new
school-boy record for the state of New Hampshire. The other members
of our team were close on the heels of Nichols, and Tilton won the meet by
the score of 27-28.
Tilton can rightfully claim the state championship of central New Hamp-
shire as Pinkerton, before the Tilton meet, was the recognized leader of
all schools in cross-country.
The following men received letters:

The girls' field hockey team had unusually poor luck this year. Out
of the four games played they won none. The first game of the sea-
son was played with Brewster Academy at NVoltebor0. The first halt
Brewster had scored only one goal and we none, but in the second half the
luck turned and the final score was 5-1 in Brewster's favor. The next
game was played at New London with Colby Academy. This Was a closer
game and we lost by only one goal, 3-2. The next game was with lflrew-
ster at Tilton, and at the end of the first half Tilton was leading 2-l.
Either we became too confident or Brewster "snapped out of it," for dur-
ing the last half, Brewster scored three more goals, and we scored none
making the score at the finish 4-2 with Brewster in the lead. Our last de-
feat was at Tilton at the hands of Colby. It was a close game and there
were many good plays made. We lost this game 3-2.
Rebecca Pitman was captain and played splendidly throughout the en-
tire season. Most of the team was made up of new recruits and next
year we should have a better team.

At the beginning of the season, the team was told by Coach Thompson
that Tilton was to play the hardest schedule that a team of this school ever
had had to face. This prediction surely was apparent when the list of
games was made public. Five of the games were with strong college Fresh-
man teams such as Dartmouth, Ilarvard, and M. l. T. We did not meet
with much success playing against these teams because the team was late
in developing, and most of these hard games were played early in the sea-
son. We did, however, win from the strong Tufts Freshman team. We
lost only one game to a school in our class out of eight games playedg this
is a remarkable record. The greatest achievement of all was the winning
of the State Championship at Durham. This is the second time that a
Tilton team has come through with this honor.
The first game was with the Harvard Freshman team at Cambridge. It
was a very fast game, and our boys put up a commendable fight, but were
beaten 35-24. The second game was with the strong Exeter Academy
team at Exeter. The final score was 41-18 with Tilton on the short end.
The next game was with our strong rival, Holderness, at Plymouth. For
the first time in four years we won from Holderness on their home floor.
The final whistle blew with Tilton on the long end of a 22-17 score. Butler
and Simpson starred.
Our next game was with our ancient and bitter rival-Colby, at New
London. We lost in a very exciting game by the score of 27-26. The
small size of the floor handicapped our team to a great extent. Simpson
was again the outstanding star in this game. After this humiliating de-
feat at the hands of Colby the team returned to its winning streak, and
won easily from the Sanborn Seminary team at Tilton. Everyone on the
Tilton team played a star game. The final result was 26-6. Our team
next went to Durham to play N. II. U. '29. Three of our best player were
taken illg the result was inevitable. We lost, 20-17.
Tilton started, for the second time during the season, another long win-
ning streak. We won easily from Colbly on our own floor, using both
first and second teams. Sands was the star of the encounter. The next
game, with llolderness, was the most exciting game seen on the local
floor for years. The final score was a tie, Jim Simpson making the goal
The loss of Captain Sands
THE T0 WEI1
which tied the score in the last second of
play in the regular period. Tilton emerged
victorious at the end of an overtime period
39-28. Butler and Simpson were the stars
of this game. Our team took Proctor, the
next game, into camp, 28-25.
To help make the Carnival a success, we
won from Tufts '29 and the Alumni. Sands
and Butler starred in both these games. Proc-
tor came to Tilton and was beaten badly, 50-
33, llolmander and Nelson starring. This
was the last game of the season, and the team
settled down to intensive preparation for the
to the team on account of illness, gave Tilton
a great handicap. Purcell was also taken ill at Durham and was unable
to play. In spite of these serious handicaps, Tilton was able to put a
strong team on the floor. The result was that Tilton won the tourna-
ment by defeating Proctor and Colby. The individual stars for Tilton
w ere Knowles and llolmander. The score of the Proctor game was Til-
t 1, 29, Proctor, lil. The winning of this game placed Tilton in the fin-
a s, in which we were pitted against Colby. Tilton won this game 15-9,
and our boys were proclaimed state champions.

liaseball proved to be Tilton 's most successful branch of sport during
the school year of 1924-1925. After three disastrous seasons, Tilton, with
the aid of Coach Stevens and good material, finally put a real ball team
on the field, a team which won the pennant in the Central New Hanipshire
Preparatory School League, and brought Tilton its first League baseball
cup. Tile team was not exceptionally strong as hall teams go, but never-
theless, it possessed excellent fighting spirit, and several times came from
behind to win important games. Tilton did not fare so well in the non-
league games, she was undoubtedly out-classed in those contests.
With the exception of Captain "Fat" Simpson there we1'e practically
no outstanding stars. The team 's success was due in no small measure
to the hitting and fielding of "Fat',, who batted for a high average for
the year, and covered the initial sack very capably. The rest of the Til-
ton infield with "VVade" Roberts and HJilI1IIliCH Simpson at second, Mau-
riee Foss at shortstop, and Earl Sands at third, were Ollly fair, but they
tightened up in the pinehes and performed very creditably. ln the box,
Melvin Cobbett proved to be one of the sensations of the season, advanc-
ing from a relief pitcher of the year before he was elected captain of the
1926 team. Although he did not win as many games as Woods, the other
76 TIIIC TOWER
twirler, it fell to his lot to pitch the non-league games. "Flint" Woods
was also a converted twirler who devoted his time between the mound and
left field. Ile pitched several fine games, especially against Proctor in
the championship game. llolmander caught all but the first two games of
the season, which were taken care of by Clark, who played very well un-
til relieved by llolmander. The Tilton outfield was not a slugging com-
bination, but they could field well and hit with men on bases. Woods in
left field, Poole i11 cente1', and Purcell in right made up the regular outfield.
Rain forced the cancellation of the opening game with Exeter, so we
opened the season by swamping Holderness at Plymouth 13-3, we dropped
the next game to New Hampton, however, 8-2, Rawlings, the New Hampton
pitcher bafiiing our batters at every turn. Tilton turned in the feature
play of the season in this game by a fast triple play, Woods to Puente to
Sands to Clark. After losing to Proctor in a weird 17-4 game, the nine
got down to business and mowed down her league opponents until she had
tied Proctor in the league standing. Then, by defeating Proctor 9-8 in
ten innings, Tilton clinched the championship. The game was a see-saw
affair throughout. Tilton practically sewed the game up by counting six
runs in the first two innings only to have Proctor come from behind and
finally gain a two run lead over us in the ninth. With the stands begging
for runs, Sands opened the ninth by getting a life on the short-stop's error,
Holmander strolled and then Woods saved his own game with a screeching
triple to left, but was out trying to stretch it into a home-ru11. This tied
the score. After Proctor was held scoreless in her half of the tenth,
Roberts opened Tilton 's half of the inning with a Texas-leaguer to right
field. Purcell advanced him with a neat sacrifice, setting the stage for
Batchelder, a utility outfielder, who came through nobly, lining a long
double to right-center, scoring Roberts with the winning run. Tilton had
won its first league championship! Much credit is due to Coach Stevens
and his players for their team-work through out the season.

"Jimmie" Simpson, Earl Sands, Foss, Purcell, Roberts, llolmander,

was able to amass 12 points against her opponents. ln this meet, Emery
Smith of Tilton School broke the record for the 220 low hurdles. McQneston
also broke into the scoring by taking a third place in the hammer throw.
The last meet of the season was the dual meet with Pinkerton at Derry.
Tilton did not fare as well in this meet as was expected. Pinkerton had
too much strength in the running events, and we lost by the score of UIQ-
Slw. During the process of the meet, four schoolboy records were brok-
en by Tilton men.
Tilton also sent Captain Allsworth, Grady, and Sherman to the Brown
'Interscholastics at Providence. Here, in very fast company, we scored
eight points. Grady scored a second and fourth place while Allsworth
tied for first in the pole vault. Sherman was taken ill and was unable to
compete, or we might have scored a larger number of points.
The season was featured by thc starring of Captain Allsworth, Grady
and Sherman. At the end of the season "Jake" Kasian was elected cap-
tain of the 1926 team and we wish him all the success in the world.

Vol. I. OCTOBER. 1804 No. I.
The first Tfiltoniafn was
published in October, 1894, a
monthly with Rodney A.
Griffin as editor. 0. W.
Holmes' death is recorded in
its pages, and the strangely
familiar words, "For Brac-
ing Air, Pure Water, and
Beauty . . . Tilton is the
Paradise of New Hampshire. "

Although some of the jokes

predecessor, the publication
has grown and meets the de-
mands of a modern student

This year, as in former years, Tilton was represented in the New Hamp-
shire Interscholastic Debating League by two teams, one on the afiirma-
tive, and one on the negative side of the question: Resolved, that the Uni-
ted States should enter the World Court, subject to the Harding-Hughes
Coolidge Reservations. Tilton was drawn to meet Hampton High School.
The affirmative team of each school remained at home, meeting the nega-
tive team of the opposing school.
Unfortunately, Tilton lost both debates. The affirmative lost by a two-
to-one decision, but Twitchell carried off the honors of the evening as best
speaker. The negative team was defeated by the Hampton orators
Although Tilton lost both debates, she was represented by strong debat-
ors. Both aggregations had strong points, well-proved, but lack of the
practice necessary to make polished delivery lessened the effectiveness of
their speechs. On the whole, however, the teams were a credit to their
coach and the school. May they have better success another year.

Must be what brings
The beautiful blush
Of the boyish bob
And manly stride.
Her mind is like
But there 's always
A man in it.
The summer moon-
Of good nature.
With a million-dollar
That has got him out of
Giggling in the shadows
In the shade of a
Wlio knows what "high-halls" swim
And look like
For Chesterfield Cigarettes,
When you are
Six feet three
In your stocking feet?
Is the jib
Which he tempers
To all the winds
Of her spceeh
Many a good man.
