78,74 LIBRARY 0 n, MASSAC THE KNOLL 1935 ' There is a mystic borderland that lies Just past the limits of our work-day world, And it is peopled with the friends we met And loved a year, a month, a week, or day, And parted from with aching hearts, yet knew That through the distance we must lose the hold Of hand with hand, and only clasp the thread Of memory. But still so close we feel this land, So sure we are that these same hearts are true, That when in waking dreams there comes a call That sets the thread of memory aglow, We know that just by stretching out the hand In written word of love, or book, or flower, The waiting hand will clasp our own once more Across the distance, in the same old way. " Helen Field Fischer We Hold the Torch " STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE Lowell, Massachusetts APPRECIATION To our faculty advisor, Herman Brase, we, the Class of nineteen hundred and thirty-five, would give our deepest gratitude for making our class what it is today. Yours was not the easiest task in the world. You worked unceasingly, instilling those ideals in us that would make us worthy of the teaching profession and Lowell Teachers College. You gave us " hearts to fight and — lose. " You opened our eyes to " visions girt with beauty and with wonder lit. " May our lives and pedagogical efforts prove that your faith in us was not in vain. DEDICATION In token of our highest esteem, we, the Class of nineteen hundred and thirty- five, in recognition of the life-long service and love for Lowell Teachers College, the untiring efforts and capable guidance rendered to the college during his ad- ministration, the enduring friendship for every student fortunate enough to have known our beloved superior, do respectfully dedicate this Year Book to our honored President, Clarence M.

Byrt Secretary 3n Jflemoriam ©a?el obhtnj3 October, 1913— fune, 1933 " I have known the silence of the stars and of the sea, And the silence of the city when it pauses, And the silence of a man and a maid, And the silence for which music alone finds the word. And the silence of the woods before the winds of spring begin, And the silence of the sick When their eyes roam about the room. And I ask: For the depths Of what use is language? A beast of the field moans a few times When death takes its young. And we are voiceless in the presence of realities — We cannot speak.

Four Year Elementary Course " The pen is mightier than the sword. " Glee Club ' 33; Book Week (Robin Hood); Publicity Chairman, Bazaar ' 33, ' 34; Mental Hygiene ' 34. Veronica, our golden-haired reporter, will always be remembered for her tirelessness and pleasing personality.

Four Year Elementary Course " Gentle in manner and kind in thought. " Vogue Club, Treasurer ' 35; Hostess ' 32, ' 33, ' 34; Mental Hygiene Club ' 34; Lieutenant ' 34, ' 35.

We shall always re- member her as our faithful lieutenant running after absence slips, and we are assured that she will keep the attendance records clear in her own schoolroom.

" Lovely to look at — delightful to know " is Eleanor, the girl with the bright blue eyes and " peaches and cream " complexion that is the envy of all her classmates.

We could say plenty about Mary ' s athletic prowess, scholastic ability, or love for dancing, but when it comes to her effervescent personality — mere words could never describe that. That " smile and chuckle " com- bination certainly starts things. Everyone in the vicinity forgets care and worry. " Eat, drink, and be merry, " says Mary — an excellent motto if there is the ability to get " A " ranks at the same time. Estelle Rita Donohue 232 Moore St., Lowell, Mass.

Four Year Elementary Course " Her hair, her manners, all who saw, admired. " ■ Glee Club ' 33, ' 34, ' 35; Sketching Club ' 35; Community Chairman ' 32; Mental Hygiene Club ' 34.

C. 19 3 5 Vera Pickles " Vee " 44 Lyndale Ave., Methuen, Mass. Four Year Elementary Course " To know her is to like her. " Literature Club ' 31; Coaches Club ' 34, ' 35; Orchestra ' 32, ' 33, ' 34; Lu Cucaracha. Appearances are oftentimes very deceiving. From her demure and charming personality, one would never guess that Vera would excel in bowling and hockey. Vee is a good mixer, a sincere friend, and a neat little dancer. With such accomplishments you will go far, Vee. Ella Pollard 57 Broadway, Methuen, Mass. Four Year Elementary Course " We love your dancing feet and jocund air. " Section Captain ' 32, ' 34, ' 35; Coaches Club ' 34, ' 35; Army and Navy Team ' 33, ' 34, ' 35; La Cucaracha. A contagious laugh certainly helped Ella " put over " those questions in Mr. Brase ' s class, the duties of a captain, and the excellent all-round coaching. Not satisfied with such mediocre achievements, note her ability along dancing lines — Carioca, Continental, or what have you. Few can boast such a record, Pal. Dorothy Reedy " Dot " 12 Litchfield Terr., Lowell, Mass. Four Year Elementary Course " Perfect coolness and self possession. " Social Etiquette Club, Secretary ' 32, President ' 33; Mental Hygiene Club, Vice-President ' 34; Chairman Senior Prom.

A dose of her cheery optimism and good humor is guaranteed as a sure remedy. Her nonchalant confidence in the future is always embracing. We feel sure that Marg ' s friends and pupils will never become discouraged. 1!) THE KNOLL Evelyn K. Remis " Ev " 23 Fourth St., Graniteville, Mass.

Add to that great artistic talents and marvelous house- keeping ability; we claim that in spite of her 4 feet 10, she ' s " the top. " Catherine A. Sampatakos " Kay " 535 Varnum Ave., Lowell, Mass. Four Year Elementary Course " She has music wherever she goes. " Class Ode; Orchestra ' 32, ' 33, ' 34, ' 35; Glee Club ' 33, ' 35; La Cucaracha. Catherine has won the admiration of all her classmates with her lovely contralto voice. She added charm and delight to our Mexican program at the Christmas Bazaar by her solo, " La Cucaracha.

Music Supervisors Course " Untwisting all the charm that ties the hidden soul of harmony. " Music Club, Vice-President ' 35; Orchestra ' 35; Glee Club ' 34, ' 35; French Play.

To enumerate Gert ' s many assets seems like listing the qualities neces- sary to make any girl a hit at L. T. C. Her outstanding qualities are sincerity, generosity, wit, brains, sense of humor, personality, smart clothes, good looks and last but not least, plenty of good smart come- backs in any situation.

" Glee Club ' 35; La Cucaracha; Vogue Club ' 35; Scout Club ' 33, ' 34. Take a heaping spoonful of generosity, add two cups of sunshine, sprinkle in a lot of sincerity, and add a dash of ginger — mix well — there is Bobby. Bobby is the type of girl who is bound to succeed as she has the ability to make and keep friends. Best of luck, Bobby.

Stewart 9 Webster St., Winchester, Mass. Four Year Elementary Course " Keen in mind and easy going. " Glee Club ' 32, ' 35; Book Week (Robinson Crusoe); Art Club ' 32; Social Etiquette Club ' 33. Rita needs no flowery introduction, she deserves no less compliment than that of being a true friend of the highest type. Full of spunk, never too timid to express her opinion, honesty, loyalty and a good sport; what more would one want in a friend? Mildred J. Swiniarski " Milly " 202 Pleasant St., Dracut, Mass. Four Year Elementary Course " Nothing great ivas ever achieved without enthusiasm. " Coaches Club ' 34, ' 35; A. A., Vice-President ' 35; Army and Navy Team ' 33, ' 35; La Cucaracha. Milly — that charming and appealing personality that rates her Al. A good sense of humor, always sympathetic, systematic, and a strong inclination to do the right. In Millie one will find a loyal friend and a spirit to fight to the end. We wonder if experiences in her athletic career are responsible? We wish success behind the desk to you. L. T.

" Literature Club, President ' 35; Hostess ' 32, ' 33; Mental Hygiene Club ' 34; Scout Club ' 32, ' 33. Steady and dependable? Yes. Quiet? Maybe. To those who don ' t know her, but to those of us that do, these qualities have endeared her to us. The best of luck to a wonderful friend. Success in your teaching and your great adventure. Dorothy Callahan Bristol Rd., Medford, Mass. Three Year Elementary Course " A laugh is worth a hundred groans in any market. " Class President ' 32; Dramatic Club ' 32. A smile for everyone marks Dot as one of the most winsome girls of ' 35. She has an air of mischief about her which adds to her attractiveness and endears her to all. Dot believes that the joy of living is to laugh when- ever possible and let the serious people do the worrying. You ' re right Dot. Worry never solved any problem. Virginia Cunningham 177 Fort Hill Ave., Lowell, Mass. Three Year Elementary Course " A girl who is a good friend every day. " Class President ' 33, ' 34; Ring Committee; Chairman Junior Prom; Lieutenant ' 32. Virginia is a girl who believes that a laugh a day keeps the doctor away.

Ethel Dunn 103 Medford St., Arlington, Mass. Three Year Elementary Course " What sireet delight a quiet life affords. " Lieutenant ' 33; Art Club ' 33; Dramatic Club ' 32; Teaching Kinder- garten. Ethel is a quiet girl, keeping her intelligence and wit to herself until she knows you well. However, when you know her there is no doubt that you will appreciate her many excellent qualities. We wish for her a happy and successful future. Have you any more stories, Ethel? How they did get around! 23 THE KNOLL Eileen O ' Brien 51 Chipman St., Medf ' ord, Mass.

Three Year Elementary Course " Give her deeds to do and they shall be done. " Class Vice-President ' 32; Dramatic Club ' 32; Sketching Club ' 33, ' 34; Program Chairman, Junior Prom. Alice is a girl that it is a rare privilege to know. She is a person of so many fine qualities that they would be too numerous to mention. How- ever, just as an introduction we might list her sketching ability, her fine personal appearance, and her excellent work as a teacher. Remember the demonstration, girls! Other Third Year Graduates Grace Crozier Victoria Gardner Marjorie Harris Thelma Lakin Anna Matyosaitis Betty Pierce ' Thus sang the uncouth swain to the oaks and rills, While the still morn went out with sandals grey; He touched the tender stops of various quills, With eager thought warbling his Doric lay : And now the sun had stretched out all the hills, And now was dropped into the western bay. At last he rose, and twitched his mantle blue : Tomorrow to fresh woods and pastures new. " Milton 24 L. T. C. 19 3 5 Student Council President Secretary- Treasurer Traffic Chairman Com m u n ity Ch airm a n Head Hostess Social Chairman Edna Ellis, Medford Mary Mylott, Lowell Helen Blinkhorn, Lowell Alice Comer, Lowell Jacqueline Phaneuf, Lowell Grace Boehner, Lawrence One of the salient phases of administration at Lowell State Teachers College is the student governing body, whose jurisdiction extends to all branches of student activity. Composed of six students, representative of each class, and advised by Miss Blanche Cheney, the Council has authority over all school matters, from seeing that rooms are tidy, to administering discipline. The officers therefore represent lofty ideals, leadership, executive fitness, and the staunchest of loyalty to the college traditions. The creditable manner in which the annual Christmas Bazaar is conducted, is sufficient proof of the Council ' s capability and worthiness in handling momentous tasks. Besides working as a group, the officers have special duties to perform, the most significant of which are vested in the President, upon whose leadership the morals of the college rest. 25 THE KNOLL J unior ci ass President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Gabrielle Tuhcotte Rita Cannon Ruth McLeester Kay Mahoney When a group of fidgety freshmen huddled in their newly assigned seats, way back in September 1932, there was little to indicate the whirlwind of activity which their advent was to bring forth. After an election of class officers, steered by some kindly upperclassmen, the Class of ' 36 got into its stride with a theatre party and dinner at Page ' s. Plans for a beach party were entered upon with enthusiasm and nearly forty girls spent the May vacation at Hampton Beach. This trip was so thoroughly enjoyed that it has become an annual institution. Returning as sophomores, the girls plunged once more into the melee with a camp week-end at Westford. L. T. C. 19 3 5 Theatre and dinner parties have been regular fun features through the three years. Our junior theatre party at the Rendezvous proved one of the most memor- able occasions of all, with the blizzard of a century thrown in for good measure. Marooned in Lowell, on buses, in trains, or getting to Boston only to spend hours in the North Station, were adventures worthy of telling and retelling. In many ways our junior year has been the best and busiest of all. At least one weekly event has been enjoyed for the last semester and the climax will be reached in the Prom, banquet, and other Junior Week activities the first week in June. Various money-making ventures have been undertaken with zest. The sale of school seals, stationery, pendants and bracelets have all been sponsored with great success. With Mr. Hiscoe at the helm, we look forward to what cannot help being the grandest year of all — our last.

" History in so far as we are concerned began with the advent of man. We are men, therefore, history began with us. On an ominous, dark day in September 1933 we, the most intelligent group of freshmen ever to enter Lowell Teachers College with all the wisdom of countless generations behind us, fearlessly knocked on the portals of that great institution. The fact that President Weed, not recognizing our importance, did not hasten to open the door personally, was not sufficient to lessen our optimism and self-confidence. We opened the doors ourselves and walked in. It has been impossible to close them against us since that memorable day. We quickly organized, deciding to hitch our respective fellow students to four stars. Therefore we elected Claire Cosgrove, president; Betty Stowell, vice-presi- dent; Ruth Kidder, secretary; Nellie Senften, treasurer. The latter successfully L. T. C. 19 3 5 iked the hor honked the horn and led us during our freshman year, while we did the back seat driving. As freshies we led a gay year with theatre parties, a week-end party at Hampton Beach, picnic at Long Pond, and other interesting events. In our Easter egg-rolling contest imperishable honors were won by Mary Cronin and Barbara Thompson. We selected Miss A. Florence Kirby, as honorary member, to guide and direct us through the coming years and introduced our new advisor at a Christmas dancing party held in a yuletide setting at Lowell Teachers College ballroom. Our sophomore officers, with the loyal support of the class, put forth every effort to add to our glory and fame. We trust that there has been a deeper significance added to the word sophomore and that glory and prestige have been ours. We continued our frivolity with a theatre party, a costume party, a sojourn at Hampton Beach was held and to cap the climax a sophomore banquet was held with Mr. and Mrs. Weed, Miss A. Florence Kirby and Miss Grace Kendricks as guests of honor. We took this occasion to honor our president and Mrs. Weed and sang for the first time our Sophomore Hymn which was dedicated to him. Our history will grow upon our return in September for the Junior year at L.T.C. Sophomore Class Directory Alice Ackhoyd Thelma Annis .

With a tolerant and amused smile we remember ourselves at the initiation of our collegiate endeavors. The first of the year is only the memory of a rather hectic introduction. The first stopping point in our period of adjustment was marked by the Christ- mas bazaar. Under guidance, we were elated to find to what extent we had grown. The Scout table displayed our artistic growth; the novelty table, our originality; the household table, our salesmanship. With spasmodic success we weathered mid-years. When our reports arrived, we learned the veracity of the statement that " A little learning is a dangerous thing. " 30 L. T. C. 19 3 5 By spring we had learned to reap the fruits of our participation in group activi- ties and clubs. Athletic activities found such popular approval among us that for the first time in the history of the college two members of our class were elected to the W. A. A. Curricular. Activities, such as exhibitions, offered opportunity for us — along executive lines. As freshmen we were introduced to the social life of the college as guests of honor at various occasions sponsored by the upperclassmen. Now, at the close of our freshman year we are grateful to the faculty for their help during this difficult period, and appreciate the cordial friendship of the other classes in " the college. We feel that we have done our work well and are now entitled to say, " We belong to Lowell Teachers College.

Chorus Hail, Teachers College, hail to thy future, Long wisdom ' s lamp shines to brighten thy halls; Valor the greatest and ideals the highest Still lead and keep you best College of all. 2.

C. 19 3 5 Star Dust " CAPRICON " Vera Pickles Katherine Healey Marion Keogh Ruby Brown Persons born under the sign of Capricon have an inexhaustible capacity for work. They are conservative, intensely ambitious, and are well suited for business. Professors, psychologists, and statesmen are found here. Being self-centered and complete they make excellent specialists. They are apt to be rather domesticated and though self -centered in love, build up lasting friendships. " AQUARIUS " Evelyn Remis Elizabeth Hill Eleanor Ward Frieda Klaiman Elizabeth McGagh Jeanette Levis Those born under the sign of Aquarius have a great sense of reality and stu- pendous common sense. Although not opposed to new ideas they are not enthus- iasts. They make successful commentators on matters of the moment, and brilliant actresses. Because they do not fall in love easily they are well-suited for conduct of public affairs. " PISCES " Faustina Hall Mary Dwyer Rose O ' Connor Marion Foster Elizabeth Grant Catherine Sampatakos Mary Healy The Pisces native is conventional, gentle, and extremely adaptable to circum- stance. They are psychic and often sublime. Their generosity leads to fluent and valuable speech and writing. Their characteristics tend to make excellent scientists and philosophers. They are extremely genial and are warm in their friendships. " TAURUS " Veronica McTeague The Taurian natives are usually quiet, steadfast, soundly constructive, and exceedingly cautious. They do very well in business, because of their integrity and gentleness, combined with steady power. They are apt to be very fond of home, and are always patient, faithful, and warm-hearted. They should specialize in some interesting field for they have the capacity for admirable work. 33 THE KNOLL " GEMINI " Edna Ellis Roberta Small Dorothy Steeves Pauline King Mildred Swiniarski Josephine Enright Ella Pollard Margaret Burke Beatrice Keene People born under the sign of Gemini are alert and active. Their capacities are diversified and adaptable, and they enjoy extreme freedom of thought and speech. Often they make good musical critics because their senses are so acute. From this group we should expect to find ideal administrators, social workers, and teachers. " CANCER " Elizabeth Fenlon Eleanor Archibald Dorothy Reedy Helen O ' Sullivan Elizabeth Clifford Euleta Gray Veronica Brosnan Myrtle Lewis The Cancer-born have a strong tendency toward poetry or romance. Their vision is usually comprehensive and idealistic and so they make successful writers. They are usually well suited for public affairs. People born under the sign have a disposition to travel and are sometimes interested in spiritualism and psychic phenomena. They are tenacious in love and make a happy home. " LEO " Marjorie Smith Mary Hayes Lucille Remy Mary Dolan Edith Grize Margaret Riedy Leo governs the heart. Those born under this sign are idealists and very sympa- thetic. They are eloquent in speech and writing which is addressed to the heart rather than to the brain because of their romantic nature. Being optimists, they never harbor a grudge and love danger and adventure. However they have a large capacity for business. We may expect to find great stateswomen, financiers, histor- ians, and critics from this group. " VIRGO " Mildred Brown Gertrude Schwartz Dorothy Florence Gertrude Hall Margery Shaw The Virgo type is extremely practical and influenced by material advantage. She has a love of order, foresight, steadiness, and patience. Being a purist, thrifty, and constructive, she will make a success in a commercial, teaching, or political career. Who knows, one of these girls may be a great public figure, sometime; — a scientist, or philosopher. However, we do know the following is true— they make durable friendships. 34 L. T. C. 19 3 5 " LIBRA " Mary MacPartlin Madeleine Shea Ann Hehir Marion Morrison Margaret Donovan The Libra people have a universal tolerance, and are therefore very charming. This charm is shown in speech and writing which is gentle, subtle, and persuasive. They are fond of children and enjoy playing with them. They are progressive, shrewd in judging, and just. Many famous teachers, scientists, and philosophers have been under this rule. No doubt these " Libra-born " will some day be famous. SCORPIO Janet Carey Estelle Donahoe Helen Sawyer Margaret Hart Rita Stewart The chief characteristic of the Scorpio native is strong willpower. They are critical and skeptical and see truth with fearless and dauntless energy. They are patient and unwearied in overcoming obstacles. They make good explorers, musi- cians, inventors, and organizers. Time alone will seek out our Disraeli, Vaillant, Burton, Wallace, Goethe, and Edison. SAGITTARIUS Katherine MacDonald Stella Mazur Eleanor Chandler Lillian Murphy The Sagittarian is a born idealist, visionist, and dreamer. She is swift and accurate in thought, direct of speech, buoyant and cheerful, and will remain youth- ful in spite of years. She is the type for an excellent teacher, especially for older children, since the interrogative method is natural to her. Her frank sincerity and outspoken honesty make her fit to be an able social worker. Class Will Know, all men, by these presents, that we, the graduating body of intellectuals, known as the Class of 1935, of the State Teachers College in the city of Lowell, in the county of Middlesex, in the commonwealth of Massachusetts, being of sound mind and body do hereby declare this our last will and testament, hereby revoking all other wills. All due cost of proper ceremony having been deducted, we divide and bequeath our estate as follows: Unto President Weed, whose contact throughout our four years has been an inspiration and a guide, we bequeath our gratitude for his interest and faith. 35 THE KNOLL Unto the faculty we offer thanks for their patience and understanding.

Unto the student body, undergraduates, the illustrious members of the senior class leave the following: Mary MacPartlin bequeaths the presidency of the senior class and one Investi- ture speech, effective, even if one ' s cap is on backwards.

Evelyn Remis bequeaths two priceless abilities that guarantee success, namely, to draw anything at any time, and to gesticulate when at a loss for words. Estelle Donohoe leaves her quietness. Someone must uphold that standard, " Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low, an excellent thing in woman. " Helen O ' Brien leaves numerous feathers worn as decorations on her hats, valuable for their natural coloring. However, Helen can always secure replacements. Eleanor Chandler leaves requisitions for gymnasium equipment for left-handed students. Gertrude Schwartz bequeaths her Oxford glasses. They may be worn for style even if eyes are in good condition. Elizabeth Grant bequeaths her duties as president of the A. A. and a catalog of speeches necessary in this office. Elizabeth McGagh leaves all unsigned E.R.A. checks, work cards and other souvenirs recalling the hours she took care of the payroll for President Roosevelt. Faustina Hall leaves her efficiency. She feels the school will need it after our departure. Rose O ' Connor bequeaths one good thermos bottle, not used since the night of October 12, 1934. May be used as hot water bottle on camping trips. Edna Ellis leaves a flashlight, remodeled, which was dented on the night of October 12. Will be very handy on future week-ends. Margaret Reidy bequeaths her nonchalance and rare manner needed when one, unprepared, must recite assignments. 36 L .T. C. 19 3 5 Pauline King bequeaths Charlie ' s devotion to the school. Any girl in need of an escort to school functions may count on Charlie. Helen O ' Sullivan leaves a certain magazine she received in her sunshine basket to a student seeking deeper insight into life and its problems.

Dorothy feels the criterion of college seniors ' behavior must be kept up to standard. Marion Morrison bequeaths her frankness and a series of strange illnesses suitable for explaining all absences. Margaret Hart bequeaths one unabridged volume of notes, unindexed, con- taining everything on anything such as " Physiognomy and What It Reveals " from own experiences. Oh you State Troopers! (Tsk! tsk!) Mary Healy and Katherine MacDonald leave their joint knowledge relevant to the duties of a social worker. We cannot vouch for the reliability of data gathered in connection with the weighing of babies. Ann Hehir and Mildred Swiniarski leave their " basketball combination " technique. They also leave six pieces of gum to next year ' s Army-Navy players — one-half stick to each player. Stella Mazur bequeathes her infectious school-girl giggle. She fears the giggle, emulating at inopportune moments, might ruin her reputation as a pedagogue. Elizabeth Fenlon leaves her curls. These curls are attachable and may be removed at night on retiring. Beatrice Keene leaves her radio audience, the exact number of which she does not wish to be made known. Catherine Sampatakos bequeaths her interpretation of " La Cucaracha " to be used in correlation with a study of the insect life of Mexico. Dorothy Reedy bequeaths her notebook, second only to Miss Lovell ' s. The stream of knowledge gathered therein is of such quantity that it has been often known to overflow. Catherine Healey leaves her technique for dodging flying missiles, including 37 THE KNOLL snowballs, on Broadway, assuring the juniors of complete protection from on- slaughts. Roberta Small leaves her individual disposition, indispensable at times, for putting people in their places. Elizabeth Hill bequeaths one knitting needle plus crocheting and knitting directions for the making of raiment for every occasion. Jeanette Levis leaves a collection, of letters bearing the Holy Cross seal to ele- vate the standard of letter-writing between students of this and various male colleges. Lillian Murphy leaves her complete self-satisfaction and surplus contentment to dissatisfied Juniors. Margaret Donovan bequeaths one used bull ' s-eye in good condition (although once in the field of action) to next year ' s Rifle Club. Ella Pollard bequeaths a nondescript collection of pins, needles, clips, etc., which were contributed to fit the tango costume to her figure. Veronica McTeague and Marion Keogh leave their willingness to work and other fine qualities. Attractively decorated halls and gymnasiums have been results of their labor and ingenuity. Mary Dwyer leaves her coronet to be used for assuming a dignified appearance without any delay. ( " I could have sworn that you had a braid. " ) Dorothy Steeves bequeaths a sermon entitled " Repent before Thou Sittest in the Seats of Thy Illustrious Predecessors. " Are you ready, Dot? The Music Seniors, the " Nine, " leave to the Junior Music their aloofness and dignity which said non-Bohemian, anti-Greenwich- Village group of music artists use in maintaining the correct demeanor of a college musical group. Edith Grise and Lucille Remy leave the " long and short of it. " Josephine Enright leaves her drawl. Janet Carey leaves her sophistication. Mary Hayes leaves her preparedness and enthusiasm. Helen Sawyer leaves her voice. Frieda Klaiman leaves a fiddle, a pair of Mexican trousers and one mustachio. Eleanor Archibald leaves her fur neckpiece, which heretofore has been indis- pensable to her costume. Myrtle Lewis leaves suggestions for another class song. We, Mary Dolan and Madeline Shea, bequeath one green parrot with a highly decorated huncker, which was used as an added inducement when given to us. We know we could not give Polly the care she will receive in the nature room. We hereby appoint our class advisor, Mr. Brase, as executor of this, our last will and testament, and direct that no bond be required of him by reason of such appointment. Mary Dolan Dated June 16, 1935 Madeline Shea L. T. C. 19 3 5 Fact and Fiction FRESHMAN INITIATION Once upon a time we were freshmen, though that seems long ago, and we were made to feel our verdant qualities even as you have felt them. Green is the color which nature has chosen for her tender young growing things. It is also the color chosen for the freshmen of L. T. C. When we first came to L. T. C. we were evi- dently color-blind. We went to the " Freshman Initiation Party " in blissfully dazed ignorance and it was not until after we had performed foolishly much to the hilarious delight of the upperclassmen that we were suddenly dazzled by that green light that guided us through our first year. We can truthfully say that it will be a long time before anyone of us forgets how it feels to push a peanut the length of the gym floor with your nose — or to do the latest rhumba before a most unappreciative audience — or to sing a song you have never heard before without accompaniment. Add to these indignities a full week of jeering as we appeared daily on buses, trolleys and trains with our spectacu- lar paper market bags, green bows, flat-heeled shoes and cosmetic-less faces. But we had as our reward for this lengthy initiation the fact that ours was ' " a willing, co- operative class of good sports, destined to win fame at L. T. C. " SOPHOMORE THEATRE PARTY " Madame President! I make a motion that we have another theatre party! " How often we have heard this plea at class meetings and how often we unanimously accepted it. Heading this list of much-enjoyed theatre parties is one held during our sopho- more year. Most of the then slightly sophisticated (?) sophomores trudged merrily down Broadway to Keith ' s Theatre. As the final curtain was drawn on " That ' s My Weakness " everyone agreed that it was one of the best shows of the year. How did you like the vaudeville, Mr. Brase? Thanks to those fortunate members of the class with cars, who willingly made several trips, we were finally all transported to " Pete ' s, " that inviting tea-room on the Pawtucket Boulevard. Here we were graciously allowed to reign supreme in the " Amber Room " — minus prying eyes and inquisitive ears. It is hardly necessary to write about the marvelous food and hilarious fun we had, for all one has to do is to say " Remember Pete ' s! " and laughter pours forth as a million and one amusing incidents are aroused in the minds of the Class of ' 35. Who said Mr. Brase couldn ' t dance? 39 THE KNOLL COMPASS CLUB DANCE Long will the Class of ' 3.5 be singing the praises of their own exclusive " Compass Club Dance " held on April 26, 1934, at the Hotel Marlborough, Lowell. Perhaps it was the pulsating rhythm of the music that set our hearts and feet dancing — perhaps it was the splendid entertainment presented by members of the class — or perhaps it was the soft blue lights and the glittering points of the compass guiding us along — but whatever it was we all agreed that there was something that made that dance " one of the best ever. " JUNIOR PROM Climaxing our most eventful " Junior Social Year " was our never-to-be- forgotten Junior Prom held on June 14, 1934, in the assembly hall. With eager hearts and willing hands co-operati ng, the hall was transformed into a beautiful flower garden. Stately white pillars entwined with ivy graced the entrances; rose- laden trellises covered the walls; and bright Japanese lanterns cast gay shadows everywhere. The faculty corner fashioned as a terrace, with wicker garden furniture, was exceptionally attractive. With the orchestra playing our favorite songs and our escorts dancing our favorite steps, we spent four of the happiest hours of our college life. And then — afterwards — JUNIOR TEA The Junior Tea was held on June 13, 1934, in the art room. With Mr.Brase,our class advisor, as " honored guest, " and Mrs. Brase and members of the faculty among our other guests, we enjoyed dainty sandwiches, cakes and other sweets. Mrs. Brase poured. The Tea was made even more enjoyable by an attractive display of articles made by our junior class in Household Arts under the direction of Miss Josephine Chute. The Tea was a decided success thanks to the untiring efforts of a most capable committee. SENIOR HIKE AND WEENIE ROAST " Our last fall term had hardly begun When the seniors decided to have some fun. Our sister class, the sophomores, were sent invitations, To join in a " weenie roast " at a far destination. " After guiding our inexperienced ( ?) sister class on a three-mile hike, in the late afternoon of a brisk fall day, we finally arrived at our destination — a large, sandy cove, surrounded by woods. Ravishing appetites were immediately appeased with hot weenies, coffee and chips. Between bites, " songs and witty sayings floated through the air. " The sophomores were right when they said, " Leave it to the sen- ' 40 L. T. C. 1 9 3 5 iors to find a way to make those weenies more tempting and appreciated than ever before. " We have our own flavoring — want the recipe, Juniors? SNATCHES FROM A SENIOR WEEK-END Thursday, October 11, 1934 Three o ' clock found twenty-one dignified and optimistic seniors ready to depart for the wilds of New Hampshire, prepared for a gala Columbus Day week- end. Weather brisk — result warm clothes. Country roads — autumn foliage — more autumn foliage — finally, the camp at Long Pond — a mad dash from our chariots to the fire in progress at the mess camp. Sleeping quarters — army cots — victrolas — piano — good dance floor — and plenty of fresh air. Conference of the supper com- mittee — result, a noble idea — to eat in kitchen near heat — a delicious supper en- joyed. Entertainment — songs — stories — games — and intimate facts from the life of our own Pauline King — (how ' s Charlie, Pauline?). Time to retire — ski pants — hats — mittens — scarfs, etc. (?) Peace — for a while — then war — disappearance of Misses Hart and Clifford calls for general confusion — flashlight glimmers bring to light all mischievous doings by missing misses. Sleep — . Friday, October 12, 1934 Breakfast whistle — setting up exercises — plenty of laughter — clear, cold weather — inviting rowboat — bicycles — Misses Hart and MacDonald congratulated upon rowing ability. Oh, yoohoo — MacDonald! Hikes through the woods — apples — from kind farmer — wagon wheels — company for supper — Edna, Rose and Vir- ginia — more entertainment — conference with our own sorceress, Mary Dolan — sleeping quarters — sleep and sweet dreams. Push over, Clifford. Saturday, October 13, 1934 Weather — Snow — calling for appropriate season ' s greetings — knitting needles — victrolas — dancing — trips to town for coal and supplies — last night in camp — am- munition — dishmops, old olives and the like, resulting in one grand rumpus!!! What happened to Mr. Brase ' s trousers? Sunday, October 14, 1934 Weather — beautiful clear autumn day — up early for church — and back for last meal in camp — day spent in scouring cabins — applause for girls who planned ap- petizing meals — appreciation expressed for Mr. and Mrs. Brase ' s assistance — last roundup — all accounted for — and ready for any kind of a winter, Mr. Weatherman — we can take it ! In conclusion we would like to remind you (Seniors, who have forgotten?) of the wonderful New Year ' s Dance and our entrance into the theatrical world with the performance of " La Cucaracha. " Are you ready for Senior Week? -11 THE KNOLL Social Organizations COACHES CLUB President . Elizabeth Grant Secretary . Pa uline LaRock Vice-President Mildred Swiniarski Treasurer . . . Anna Waters The membership of the Coaches Club is restricted to the upperclassmen of L. T. C. who have received a specified number of athletic points. The main object of the club is to promote participation in sports and habits of healthful living. The system governing the club gives an equal opportunity for participation to all under- classmen. Horseshoes, bowling, hockey, ping pong, badminton, tenikoit and tennis are enjoyed in their seasons. Miss Bailey, physical director, guides the club in all its Officers for 1936 President . . . Anna Waters Secretary . Rena King Vice-President . Rita LaBelle Tieasurer Mary Winchebaugh ART CLUB President . Elizabeth Carroll Secretary . Rita Stewart Vice-President Mary Hart Treasurer Frances Conley The Art Club works under the able leadership and guidance of Miss Chute of the Art Department. The accomplishments, which are many and varied, are chosen by the members. The club year terminates with a display of the finished work in the exhibition room. The club has long had the reputation of being a sociable, industrious and enjoyable organization and has always drawn a large membership. May it continue to be regarded as one of the most popular and favored clubs of L. T. C. CHILD STUDY CLUB President . . . Helen Knight Secretary-Treasurer . Helen Lister The Child Study Club gives an elementary course of child study and prepares the members for admittance to the Mental Hygiene Club. Each girl chooses a child to study his characteristics. The results of their studies are compiled in a yearbook which is passed on the following year to the new members. The membership is limited to first year girls, who, with Miss Cheney, as their advisor, join in many interesting parties. DRAMATIC CLUB President . Mary J. O ' Donnell Secretary Eleanor Gray Vice-President . Ruth Kidder Treasurer . Grace Kerrigan Another club which enjoys wide popularity is the Dramatic Club under the capable direction of Miss Florence Kirby. The members are taught the art of stage 42 L. T. C. 19 3 5 presentation and present each year a Shakesperian play. After witnessing this year ' s play, A Midsummer Night ' s Dream, we can easily say that L. T. C. has some fine dramatic talent. LITERATURE CLUB President . . Eleanor Ward Secretary . Helen Trudel Treasurer . . Margaret Noonan In the Literature Club an attempt is made to keep abreast in the modern liter- ary world. Under the direction of Miss Lovell, favorite novelists, dramatists, poets and biographers are discussed and excerpts from their works are given. This work is thoroughly enjoyable as well as instructive and in this manner the members of the club procure a literary background essential to the teaching profession. MENTAL HYGIENE CLUB President Marjorie Smith Secretary Edna Steele Vice-President Loretta Gorman Treasurer Margaret Reidy Because of the unlimited popularity of the Mental Hygiene Club enrollment is limited to upperclassmen. Members of the club are interested in the mental hygiene of the school child. Instructive and interesting talks are given by Mr. Brase who also straightens out any troublesome questions in the minds of the members. Each year the club visits two or three institutions to view problem cases. Their work is intercepted by many enjoyable socials. MUSIC CLUB President . Andronike Mekelatos Secretary-Treasurer . Emma Nicol Vice-President . . Helen Sawyer The history of music, composers and their works, and community singing are some of the interesting phases upon which the members of this club devote their time. Miss Damon, supervisor of music, is the efficient director of this club. At various times during the year the members provide enjoyable entertainment for the school, most impressive of which is the annual Christmas program. SCOUT CLUB President . Eleanor Howe Scribe Teresa Grady Secretary . Virginia Ladd Treasurer . Dorothy Webb The Scout Club, under the capable direction of Miss Clark, Miss Turner and Miss Wilson, helps to develop in the members an appreciation of their duty to their fellowmen and community. While most of the time is spent in working for badges and rewards many delicious luncheons and gay week-ends are enjoyed. 43 THE KNOLL SOCIAL ETIQUETTE CLUB President . . Mona Davison Secretary . . . Janet Collins Vice-President . Ruth Mitchel Treasurer . . . Ruth Martin The members of the Social Etiquette Club work under the willing and capable direction of Miss Christine Kane of the faculty. They endeavor to perfect their manners and personalities according to one of the best authorities on this subject — Miss Emily Post. As one would expect it is a very lively and sociable organization, always ready and willing to aid other organizations if any problem in etiquette should arise. VOGUE CLUB President . Elizabeth Hill Secretary . Fuastina Hall Vice-President . Marian Foster Treasurer . Mildred Brown The Vogue Club, organized by this year ' s Senior Class, enjoyed much popu- larity. The members were given an opportunity to advance their interest in fancy work, including knitting, crocheting and embroidering. As a result the wardrobes of the members were greatly and charmingly increased as the year went by. Time was taken out between rows of knitting and crocheting to indulge in many gay holiday parties. SKETCHING CLUB President . Elizabeth Clifford Secretary . Mary Healey Vice-President . . Euleta Gray Treasurer . . Janet Carey Up under the eaves of our college is the abode of the Sketching Club. A little touch of Bohemia, Greenwich Village and L. T. C. pervades the atmosphere. Smocked creatures rush from all points of the school every Tuesday, take the steps two at a time, dash into the studio, seize their pallets and brushes, and work! All those who are elected to the club must have the " gift " and be willing to use it. In Corpore Sano (The Strenuous Life) ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION President Elizabeth Grant Vice-President Mildred Swiniarski Secretary . Pauline LaRock Treasurer Anne Waters The Athletic Association is one of the most important organizations in the college. Its membership includes practically the entire student body, who are actively interested in its affairs. With the co-operation of President Weed, Miss 44 L. T. C. 19 3 5 Ruth M. Bailey, the Director of Physical Education, has built up a fine program of athletics. Under the guiding hand of Miss Bailey, each year finds the program expanding, so that it now includes field hockey, basketball, baseball, bowling, tennis, tenikoit, archery, riflery, horse-shoe pitching, golf, badminton, and ping pong. For the spirit of sportsmanship and fair play which she has instilled in us throughout our four years at the college, and the understanding with which she has met and solved our many problems, we, the Seniors, wish to express our sincere appreciation to Miss Bailey. ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION BANQUET One of the most enjoyable banquets in the history of the A. A. was held in the gymnasium, following the Army-Navy basketball game. It was very informal, with each table entertaining with a " stunt, " the faculty favoring also. As a token of the esteem in which he is held by the members of the A. A., Presi- dent Weed was presented with a desk set. THE COACHES CLUB The Coaches Club is open to Juniors and Seniors who have proved themselves capable in at least three major sports and have also shown ability in leadership. Its importance lies in the fact that it aids in putting across the extra-curricular sports, in co-operation with the Athletic Association. Illustrious seniors in the club are: Mary Dolan, Peg Donovan, Betty Grant, Kay Healey, Ann Hehir, Pauline King, Mary MacPartlin, Helen O ' Sullivan, Vera Pickles, Ella Pollard, and Millie Swiniarski. FIELD HOCKEY The first sign of falling leaves and brisk autumn weather found the Seniors down on the hockey field, donning shin guards and pinnies. Old Man Pluto smiled upon us and we enjoyed an uninterrupted season. In the class games, the Seniors won the Field Hockey Championship, beating the plucky Freshmen to the tune of 5 to 3, in the middle of an old-fashioned blizzard which made Kay MacDonald resort to ski pants and as many sweat shirts as she could carry. Pig-tails — Rah! BASKETBALL Interest reached its highest peak during the basketball season, with all L. T. C- ites looking forward to the big annual Army-Navy game. After the regular practice periods and class games, the two varsity teams were chosen. The Army line-up included the following Seniors: Ruby Brown, Peg Donovan, Peg Hart, Mary Dolan, 45 THE KNOLL and Ella Pollard. The Navy: Ann Hehir, Pauline King, Millie Swiniarski, and Ev Remis. After two years of suppression, the blue and white banner of the Navy emerged triumphant. It was Navy Day, the gobs winning by a score of 43 to 21. Heave-ho! BOWLING The basketballs had hardly been tucked away, when the familiar sound of bowling pins bouncing against the walls of the gym reached our ears; the bowling season was on in full swing. Elevators would have been greatly appreciated by the Seniors during those first few days, but we had to suffer and limp over the stairs as best we could. BADMINTON After lodging several " birdies " in the cages around the gym lights, we soon became so skilled as to be able to serve the troublesome " birdie " over the net. With diligent practice and the use of much liniment we are proud to say that we feel capable of challenging Mrs. Wightman herself. ARCHERY Archery was introduced into the sports curriculum when we were Juniors. Needless to say, we looked forward to it with great anticipation. The mild fall weather found us rolling the target over the " knoll " to the archery range. Although shaky at first, our efforts were rewarded and we were really thrilled to see our arrows head straight for the golden bull ' s-eye. RIFLERY Through the kindness of Mr. Weed and under the direction of Miss Bailey, a rifle range was constructed up in the " attic. " Enthusiasm ran high. Each Friday found the Seniors (only the Seniors enjoyed the privilege of shooting) the proud holders of targets with five or six bull ' s-eyes, but sad to say, a few of us never man- aged to locate even the target. (A new device for maintaining discipline.) PING PONG Many happy hours were spent playing the " vigorous " game of ping pong. Here, the Seniors found that the virtue of self-control, practiced over a period of four years, came in handy. Tournaments waxed " hot, " producing several mythical champions. The final tournament was won by Virginia Ladd, a Freshman, who proved herself to be the best player in the college. Finally, we must not neglect our tricky putting green and the happy hours spent in improving our golf game. 46 L. T. C. 19 3 5 Sugar and Spice 1935 VARIETY " What are we made of?
