How fair the flame that shone for us, A class of earnest, eager youth That rallied, Lowell, to thy call, And sought thy knowledge and thy truth. Four years we hovered round thy flame, Four years of study, laughter — tears Until our souls became afire To face with zeal the future years. With lofty purpose we will try To spread thy light, thy teachings true. Reflect the rays, that all may share Our sacred heritage from you.

We were frightened, unsophisticated children enter- ing a new school and meeting new friends. Freshman initiation took place almost immediately. Green, being the color of inexperience, was designated as the color for the Freshmen. For one solid week we abided by rules set down for us by the austere upperclassmen. With the help of the Seniors we held class elections. Mary Winchenbaugh was elected President; Gabri- elle Turcotte, Vice-President; Eleanor Gray, Secretary; and Mary Meehan, Treas- urer. The first class activity was our Theatre Party which was held at the Strand Theatre. We later went to Page ' s where we had an enjoyable dinner. The high light of our Freshman year was the Beach week-end. Miss Hariclia Sarris was a most understanding and dependable chaperon. The group arrived safely Friday after- noon, but to their chagrin they discovered that the food had not arrived. However, a foresighted Freshman had brought crackers and tea. Thanks to Anna Waters and her " uke " we spent many hours singing in the afterglow of the fireplace. Saturday morning some of our early risers went out to greet the morn. We must not forget to add that a few courageous sportsmen attempted to join King Neptune. It proved to be mighty cold and the girls emerged a most pleasing hue of crimson. We established quite a barber shop during the afternoon with Miss Sarris as the most efficient barber. There was much primping due to the fact that the girls were going to a dance at the Casino. Sunday, the girls gave a concert from the band stand for the benefit of the Sunday afternoon visitors. It was late before there was any stirring in the house Monday morning. Horse- shoes, roller-skates, and tenikoits were taken out and some of us went walking while others were brave enough to try the briny deep once again. Eight fair damsels walked to Hampton Center, fourteen miles away, in the hope that at the end of the long journey they would be rewarded by a letter from home. Tuesday was a very sad day for it was time to leave. A grand weenie roast culminated the activities of the week and as we closed the door of the cottage a few tears were shed but a smile shone through the tears when we thought of the next year. Within a Year In September 1933 we were ready for another year of work, fun and frolic. This time, however, we were Sophomores. From our lofty position we could look down with sympathy upon the poor Freshmen and be glad that we were now to be looked upon with respect. Our first social event was a week-end which was held at the Y. W. C. A. camp at Long-Sought-For Pond, Westford, Mass. Miss Sarris 30 agreed to be our chaperon. We were indeed fortunate to have the Hiscoe family with us for Sunday dinner. The most amusing part of the week-end was the mock marriage with Effie as Pat, and Midge as Louise, and the mock trial of Pauline. Without the hearse (Gay ' s Model T Ford) and Dorothy Porter, the chauffeur, the week-end would certainly have been a failure. By this modern means of transporta- tion we were conveyed to and from the camp. About 8.45 Monday morning the hearse drewup to the door of the school. First one piled out, then anotherand another, until one would wonder if they would ever stop. When they had all piled out blank- ets, clothes and books were tossed from the hearse which seemed to have elastic sides. Many sleepy-eyed students appeared that day at classes. Next on our social calendar was a party to celebrate Hallowe ' en. Miss Sarris and Mr. and Mrs. Hiscoe chaperoned us. The Amber Room at Pete ' s was appropri- ately decorated for the occasion. A very enjoyable program was presented after dinner, and the party broke up at an early hour. Miss Ramsay was elected as the next victim as she was chaperon at our Thanks- giving Party which was held at the Blue Moon. We believed in trying a different place each time. We started the new year with a sleigh-ride party. It was our first social of this kind. With Gay and Effie as leaders we sang loudly and lustily. We journeyed to Dracut where we had made arrangements for a supper, and it certainly felt good to get something hot to eat after the brisk, cold air. That night many girls appeared on the train in varied colored ski-suits due to the fact that they arrived at the station too late to change. The most enjoyable party of our Sophomore Year was our week-end at the beach which I am certain will never be forgotten. Once more we invaded Hampton and the Winona Cottage. It has long been a custom of the school for the Sophomore sections to give " Section Parties " for the enjoyment of the school. Wishing to continue this custom three enjoyable parties were presented by our class. One section portrayed some of the famous " Loves of Literature, " another a Minstrel Show which was very com- ical. As Miss Narkiewich was soon to leave us to be married our last section party was called the " Wedding of the Painted Doll. " Rita Cannon made a most attractive bride with Mary Highland as the groom. Before the year had closed we were called upon to present the " Sculptor ' s Studio " for the Senior Banquet. This was originated and very ably directed by Mildred Scanlon. Our Sophomore year was rapidly drawing to a close. Our last affair took the form of a Formal Dance which was held at the Mount Pleasant Country Club. We danced to the strains of Malcolm Weaver ' s orchestra. What a happy year we had and how sorry we were to have it come to a close. However, we were consoled by the fact that we would soon be back to resume our studies and good times. , r ht t- Catherine B. McIvenzie 31 Things That Count September, 1934, brought back to L. T. C. sixty-one happy Junior girls. The dauntless spirit that had always kept us on top both in our work and in our play was shown at our first class meeting when the class unanimously agreed to give its wholehearted support to Gay, our class president, and to Loretta Gorman, who was voted chairman of a formal tea in honor of the Freshman class. On the 29th of October we had a grand time at our annual Hallowe ' en party at Pete ' s. Shall we ever forget " Citronella and the Brass Slipper? " Evidently our " little sisters " enjoyed our tea, for on October 30th, they were perfect hostesses to us at a Hallowe ' en party. Ghost stories, bobbing for apples, cider and doughnuts all had their place in the fun. On November 23rd, we held another Sigma Eta Dance at the Mount Pleasant Golf Club. A wonderful party and a wonderful crowd. Need I say more? The Juniors were beaten by the Seniors in their try for the College Hockey Championship. " Better luck next year " was the cheering word given to our fighting- team. In Issue III of the Tattletail an Extra Bulletin was published that eventually caused much delight among the Juniors — the invitation to attend a theatre party at the Strand on January 23rd. Even the flurry of snow-flakes did not dampen the usual enthusiasm. However, late in the evening some found that such things as benches in the North Station do not make comfortable sleeping quarters. The January Class Activity Program started off with a luncheon on April 4th. On April 10th, Effie Sarris conducted a " sing " and the following week we held another successful Junior luncheon. We must not forget that wonderful Easter Formal on April 25th. April 26th came at last. Although it was rather a cool day we started for Hamp- ton Beach, where we presented an atmosphere of Palm Beach in ankle socks and shorts. A sensation was created one evening when the people of Hampton hearing music from the bandstand were surprised to see L. T. C. Juniors in their Annual Musical Concert. Junior Week! Do you remember its opening? The " House of David " vs. " Florodora Girls " Baseball Game. A few things to remember: Score 47-46, Fainting Florodora Girls, Grace picking up " home-plate " and running around the bases, Costumes — remember those pictures? Tuesday, we held a scavenger hunt and weenie roast. Remember scrambling for that prize box of potato chips? Wednesday was the night of our long anticipated formal banquet. Guests of honor were President and Mrs. Weed and Mr. and Mrs. Hiscoe. We shall all remember Gay ' s speech. Thurs- day, our activity was the Bex Luncheon. Friday ushered in the Prom. We danced in a Japanese setting. Lanterns of all hues were strung across the hall to give a subdued light. A pagoda and picturesque curved bridge completed the picture. The novel favors were pigskin key cases. As graduation time came upon us we sorrowfully realized that we were to lose not only some of our very dear classmates, but also President Weed.

Dated, June 12, 1936 Margaret Ryan 35 Friendship ' s Road As the summer of 1941 drew near, I packed my bags in preparation for the trip which I had been planning for the past five years. The object of this trip was two- fold: first, I was to have my longed-for vacation; second, I was to see my former classmates from L. T. C. Thus, I climbed into my trusty car and with the greatest anticipation, began my tour. In Boston I heard that " Peg " Shannon and Edna Steele were ticket agents at the Boston Gardens for the hockey games which are played on Ladies ' Night. They did some work along this line their senior year in college. Now they receive a com- mission. I was informed that " Gay " Turcotte held a unique position. Each day she sub- mits to a newspaper three questions which cannot be answered. Most of the ques- tions are about stray dogs, so you see " Gay " had changed very little since she asked questions in Mr. Brase ' s room. I also heard that Pauline Sullivan is happily married and attempting to disprove the theory brought forth in genetics class, which states, " All ye who enter here leave all hope behind. " In New York I stopped at a hospital to see Edythe McQuaide, or I should say Dr. McQuaide, for Edythe has found her greatest happiness in helping others. She told me about a charming little house in which Ruth McLeester is living, for Ruth now possesses the greatest of all degrees — that of MRS. Florence McCarthy was supervisor in this same hospital. Her first interest in nursing was aroused the day she donned the uniform for the baseball game which opened Junior Week. Florence had just received a letter from " Kay " Mahoney, saying that she is now head badminton coach in a girls ' school. She received her practical experience in this work by instructing " Gay. " I found Andronike to be very enthusiastic about the new orchestra which she had formed and of which she was the director. Rosemary Ridler was the harpist in this orchestra. She told me that Caroline Weaver and Eleanor Pflug were having remarkable success in vaudeville. Caroline plays the piano and Eleanor the banjo. Every audience is delighted with this duet and the songs which Caroline writes. At Greenwich Village I heard much talk about a promising young artist. She was Louise Pihl, and she certainly had done some lovely work. I stopped in at one of Fifth Avenue ' s exclusive shops, as it had such lovely gowns in the window. I was delighted to learn they had been designed by Mary Meehan. I was told that Ann Kiernan modeled these creations, while Margaret Shanahan applied her talents to selling two or three of them to a customer who had intended buying only one. Upon approaching a theatre, I saw the name of Mary Rose Sorenson. Mary was giving impersonations of various characters. I am sure she owed her success to those impromptu entertainments she gave at L. T. C. The next scene depicted a 36 garden outside of a low, rambling farm house, showing a stone wall covered with roses and a cozy arbor. This had been done by Virginia Allgrove. While walking through Central Park, I saw Rita McCarthy sitting on one of the benches with her knitting bag at her feet. She was so engrossed that she was unaware of the fact that she was sitting on a newly painted bench. I learned that Olive Eldridge found her Beau Brummel in Winchell, Jr., and now Olive had stepped into Father Winchell ' s shoes. In Olive ' s column I read that Evelyn Dwyer and Grace Boehner had gained considerable fame in the field of Shakespearean drama. Their first production took place at L. T. C. In Vermont I happened into a small church one evening to attend a song service. The singing was led by Anna Cheries, while Elizabeth Moody accompanied her on the piano. Elizabeth told me that Edna Lambert and Eleanor Gray were both in the choir of a church in the next town and that all the church members were more than pleased with their singing. About noon of the next day, I met " Kay " McKenzie, so we went to lunch in a tea room called " Captain Kidd ' s Pirate Den. " Captain Kidd, bedecked in the traditional garb, turned out to be none other than Eva Drury. " Dot " Purdy was having a fine time working in Eva ' s tea room. Sometimes, at night, she played the piano during the stage show. " Kay " had to leave early, as she is treasurer of the Townsend Old Age Plan and has to send out the checks. Eva told me that Evelyn Durgin is in the tomato business. I assure you that Evelyn ' s interest in tomatoes is a legitimate one, dating back to her Junior Year when she borrowed a tomato from the corner store. I was told that Mary Mylott and " Betty " Shannon work for Vantine. " Betty " goes around getting orders for pictures, as she certainly learned all about Vantine ' s pictures her senior year. Mary, however, takes pictures, such as winter scenes for year books! Mary discovered just the correct angle at which to set the camera, one day at L. T. C. when the camera man insisted she wade through snow drifts to look into his camera. In Pennsylvania I stopped at the Y. W. C. A. and there I saw Pauline LaRock who was head of the athletics. Paul had interested many of the girls in sports by arranging tournaments for them. She told me that Anna Waters had become very interested in politics, and that, without doubt, she would soon be one of our con- gresswomen. In Philadelphia I came upon a school for the drama which was conducted by Edith Robertson and Anna Ryan. Edith teaches her pupils to be southern gentle- men, while Anna teaches hers to be sweet old maids — like Miss Bliss, in the play in which Anna took part. " Dot " Porter often helps them in teaching the pupils to be comedians. You remember that she specialized in the art of comedy at L. T. C. Anna told me about an interesting little shop just a few streets away. This shop is noted for its hooked rugs and braided mats and is run by Regina Luongo. I went to visit one of the new schools and there I found Myrtle Ripley. Myrtle 37 had combined her many talents and had become an excellent teacher. She told me that Rita Sullivan was soon to be made reading instructor at L. T. C. I went into a corner drug store for a " coke " and discovered " Betty " Hannigen behind the counter. " Betty " said that Eleanor Hill was out delivering prescriptions to some of their customers. " Betty " and " Ele " were having a fine time, but their profits aren ' t large as they eat so many sundaes and peanuts. In New Jersey I rode on the train while my car was being repaired. Here I learned that Loretta Gorman had established and still conducts, for the benefit of train passengers, that famous " Station to Station Ballet " — success guaranteed in three rides. Loretta told me that Edna Foley was conducting a class in the technique of talking in history class. " How It Can Be Carried on Inconspicuously " is the subject of her next lecture. In the next car I found Mary Furdon and " Dot " Chisholm. For diversion " Dot " plays in tenikoit tournaments while Mary is in amateur theatricals. She often takes the part of a well-known movie actress. As my car was all repaired, I went to New Hampshire, and there I discovered that Ida Cross was running a riding stable and devoting most of her time to begin- ners, since she has mastered the technique of dismounting rolling horses. Ida told me that Mary Hiland — " H-i-1 " — is the manager of the first Women ' s All American Baseball Team. Mary is an expert third baseman. As I scanned the newspaper, I saw that Madeline Johnson and Marguerite Knaggs were the leaders of a national club movement, similar to that of the 4-H Club. I also read about a new type of marathon. It was called a " Knitting Mara- thon. " I was pleased to read that Elizabeth Orr had entered and was well in the lead. Soon I started for home. In Pittsfield, Massachusetts, I went to a charity bazaar of which Mary Highland — " H-i-g-h " — was the chairman. Rita Cannon had charge of decorating the many booths, and, as many times in the past, had to make 300 candy baskets. Muriel Bridges and Evangeline Nicholaides had resurrected their purple smocks, as they had to paint the scenery for the entertainment at the bazaar. I learned that Helen Blinkhorn is an art instructor. Instead of the type of drawing one might expect Helen to be doing, I found her drawing pictures of Micky and Minnie Mouse, much to the delight of a group of kindergarten children. Helen told me that Barbara Horgan is the baker ' s " Public Enemy No. 1. " She is an advo- cate for the abolition of bread from the diet; her motto being " Down with the bread- makers and up with the fruit growers. " On a college campus I came upon Prof. M. Ryan. Mildred Scanlon was attempt- ing to persuade Prof. Ryan to allow her to take a re-examination for her course, " How to Get the Point of a Joke in Five Minutes. " At last I arrived home once more. What a wonderful trip I had had ! One that was filled to the brim with laughter and reminiscences, but most important of all the things I learned along " Friendship ' s Road " was the fact that my many friends from L. T. C. had not changed fundamentally. They still remained friendly, loyal, and fine. Marjorie Melody mmammammmmmmmmmmmm Mildred N. Scanlon SOCIALS Senior i enior I ea The first event of the final year of the Class of 1936 was sufficient to show that it had not lost its renowned " pep " in acquiring the added dignity of Seniority to its already overflowing personality. The Seniors, in giving the annual tea to the mem- bers of the faculty, were doubly pleased and joyous to be able to have our new presi- dent, Mr. Dugan, and Mrs. Dugan as the honored guests. The delightful music rendered by the Senior Music Students served to enhance the attractiveness of the atmosphere. Mrs. Kiley and Mrs. Hiscoe very graciously poured, while some of the members of the class served an enjoyable luncheon. It can be truly said that this will be a day forever outstanding in the memories of all of us. retaliation Exercises The twenty-first of November was a day never to be forgotten by the faculty and student body of Lowell Teachers College. It was on this auspicious occasion that cur school was honored with the presence of dignitaries of Massachusetts gathered here to pay homage to our newly elected president, Mr. James Dugan. The auditorium was filled to capacity with honored guests from various parts of our Commonwealth. The school Orchestra and Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Damon, made the day colorful with their well rendered musical selections. Seated on the platform as guest speakers were Dr. Payson Smith, then Com- missioner of Education; Mr. McCartin, Superintendent of the Lowell schools; Presidents of Bridgewater and North Adams Teachers Colleges; Miss Grant, repre- senting the alumnae; Mr. Riley, representing the faculty; and Miss Blinkhorn speaking for the student body. The exercises were opened with prayer by the Rev- erend Msgr. Kelleher, and closed with benediction by the Reverend Mr. Cozad. The eulogies given by these distinguished men showed the high esteem in which our beloved president is held. We were deeply touched by the tributes of these men, for it was readily seen that they were not given merely as a matter of form, but sincerely from the heart. After the installation exercises Mr. and Mrs. Dugan received their guests in the Library where a tea was given in their honor. Thus ended the red letter day at L. T. C. — a day that will always be remembered and cherished in the hearts of all. Lobster Pot On November 19 the Seniors once again tried their pet activity, this time with a new setting — The Lobster Pot on Princeton Boulevard. The nautical decorations in themselves were enough to portend an enjoyable time. The entertainment that followed was enjoyed to the utmost by an appreciative audience. All agreed it was the best ever. ■11 i— i X Q i— i H 1X1 i— i tf K o Christmas Bazaai For many years it has been the custom of the College to hold an annual Christ- mas Bazaar, the proceeds of which are given to deserving students and various charitable organizations in Lowell. In December, 1935, the College Auditorium was gaily decorated with holly, and the booths brightly lighted displaying the various things for sale. Candy, holiday cards, pastry, plants and flowers, handiwork, and novelties were some of the many articles of attraction. The fact that at the end of the evening we beheld nothing but empty booths proves that the L. T. C. girls have the best to offer in the line of wares as well as entertainment. Once mere, as in previous years, the observer could net help but observe the fine spirit of the girls as they worked together with the common bond of helping others. The front of the hall closely resembled the exterior of a southern mansion, due to the efforts of the Senior Physical Education Class, ably assisted by Mr. Doyle and Mr. Hobson. This set was used as a background for " Christmas in Dixie, " the entertainment beautifully presented by these same girls under the direction of Miss Ruth Bailey. The Southern belles in their gay and colorful gowns, and the gentlemen in for- mal attire presented a picture that was most charming. The southern atmosphere was made more realistic by the plantation negroes who sang spirituals. The Bazaar, much to the gratification of all concerned, was a success from a financial viewpoint as well as that of entertainment. Senior Week Committees BANQUET .

Scanlon MUSIC O C3 Musi( Has anyone ever told you that the Lowell Teachers College is the only State College in the country which gives a degree to those who specialize in Music? Isn ' t that something of which to be very proud? Those wishing to specialize in Music change from the Academic Course to the Music Course in their Junior year, and continue in their Senior year. During this time the students are given every opportunity to apply what they learn in classes, through practice-teaching in the nearby training schools. In this way each student, gets experience in teaching and in learning how to cope with problems which may arise during the lessons. Each girl writes two originals during her Junior and Senior years in the Harmony Class. Some of these compositions, which take the form of oratorios, instrumental solos, string quartets, and even operas, are surprisingly fine. To sum up the Music Department there is hardly more to be said than that the girls who graduate from the Music Course make some of the finest Music Supervisors in the country. The Glee Club is one of the finest organizations in the school. Until recently, those having the best voices were chosen to be in the Glee Club. This was determined after the entire student body had been tested for quality of tone, pitch accuracy, and range. For many reasons a change was made by which anyone who wished could become a member, and those who didn ' t were free to join another club. The new members are working very earnestly and the organization is as fine as it ever was. In the past years excellent concerts have been given under the capable direction of Miss Inez Field Damon, who has been in charge of the Music Department for the past sixteen years. November meant losing a wonderful old friend, for at this time Miss Damon found it desirable to resign, but December brought a wonderful new friend in Miss Grace Pierce, who was formerly Supervisor of Music in the Arlington Public Schools. Already she has found a warm spot in the heart of every student and faculty member. The Glee Club is already working toward a grand Folk Festival to be given in May, which will include every nationality in the city. The orchestra is also making rapid progress under the direction of Miss Pierce and plays for many of the school functions. This is also an organization of which to be very proud and the members are to be congratulated for their regular attendance at rehearsals, which are held every Thursday afternoon. In October, 1935, ten girls who comprised the Junior Music Class decided to try some part singing of English Madrigals. Miss Andronike Mekelatos was chosen leader and practice was held every week. The " Madrigal Singers " sang at the Glee Club Concert last May. Upon returning to school as Seniors they decided to carry on, and because of their love for the songs they sing so well they have become very well-known, and have received many engagements. At the time of this writing the girls are in the height of their glory, having been asked to sing at the National Music Supervisors ' Conference in New York, thereby being repaid for hard work. M.

We had lots of fun during those rainy hockey days with " Dotty " Porter charging about as our center half; Regina Luongo making a good center forward, and " Kay " Mahoney cur forward who was actually serious and never laughed on the hockey field! In tenikoit, Edythe McQuaide, coach and player, along with Olive Eldridge, Virginia Allgrove and Ruth McLeester helped to win the championship from other classes. Pauline LaRock was our star bowler, winning the championship of 1935 with Edna Steele ranking second on our list of good bowlers. Ida Cross and Elizabeth Orr would be well qualified to win trophies in a shooting match, both archery and riflery. Mildred Scanlon always entertained us at the Army and Navy Games. Our class was well represented in the Army and Navy Games by Pauline LaRock, Anna Waters, Regina Luongo, and Anna Kiernan. As for Badminton — well, we ' re all good at that! When it come to horseshoes, Edna Lambert takes the prize and Myrtle Ripley the second one. We all admire the " Coaches " for their ability to succeed in any sport. As a whole we ' ve all had a marvelous time in sports at L. T. C. 52 Mildred N. Scanlon UNDERCLASSMEN Class of 1937 President Claire Cosgrove Vice-President Doris Pagum Secretary Ruth McGarry Treasurer Ethel Benson September 1934, at Lowell, found the Freshmen wandering disconsolately and wondering what lay ahead. After a very few days, faces and shapes became less confusing and college days real. In November, a get acquainted party was held. In December, a Christmas Formal Dance was given in honor of the faculty member and advisor, Miss Florence Kirby. The Sophomore year was crowded with events, — teas, dances, theatre and house parties culminating in a tea for the seniors. The Class of 1937 carried through its ambitions and social program during its Junior year. The first event of importance was a tea given in honor of President and Mrs. Dugan. The next important moment was an annual event — the house party at Hampton. Another outstanding event was the Junior-Freshman Hop in November. The conclusion of the year will be marked by Junior Week activities when the entire class is combined in achieving the most surpassing accomplishments of its career. 54 Class of 1938 President . Vice-President Secretaty Treasurer Alice Cameron Marcella Tierney Janice Kenney Helen Dugan The Sophomore Class recalls memorable events of the two years of our college life. We established two precedents: the election of two freshmen to the W.A.A., and the publication of an undergraduate magazine entitled Quips. We grieved over the resignation of President Clarence M. Weed whom we regarded as our president, teacher, and friend. At the close of our freshman year we felt that we had firmly established ourselves in the college under the guidance of Miss Mabel B. Wilson. Returning as sophomores, we elected class officers, enjoyed a theatre party with dinner at the Rendezvous, established a budget system, and sponsored a most successful Valentine Dance. We deeply felt the loss of Miss Damon and Miss Bailey, but now receive with sincere wishes for happiness and success, Miss Marguerite Gourville and Miss Grace Pierce. To President James Dugan, whose kindness and understanding is deeply ap- preciated, we pledge our loyalty. While drawing the curtain upon a successful soph- omore year, we eagerly anticipate our junior year at L. T. C. 55 Class of 1939 President Madelyn O ' Neil Vice-President Patricia Doherty Secretary Faith Bullock Treasurer Dorothy Grondine The Freshman Class has been very active since September. It was all so differ- ent we could not seem to settle down at first. The initiation was an affair which most of us faced anxiously. In October our " big sisters " invited us to an afternoon tea. By the end of October we had become accustomed to the college and better acquainted. Class elections were held and we have been ably guided by the officers who were elected. Our first social gathering was a luncheon given in honor of our class advisor, Miss Gourville. We hope to have many good times under her capable leadership. At present we are planning a beach party to be held during vacation week. Other than that we have not made any plans for the future, but we are looking forward to the next three years when another class will be " those green freshmen. " 56 Mildred N.

Stowell Helen Trudel Alice Comer Mary ' Augusta Alyce Greenwood The School and Society League is an organization established for the control of student government activities. It is an organization of service. Its duties include the arrangement of the social calendar; the regulation of attendance and discipline; the administration of student elections; social work, in the community at Thanks- giving and Christmas times, and among the students and training schools through- out the year; the establishment of new customs; and the perpetuation of desirable traditions. It was this Council which introduced the Budget System purposing to stabilize the accounts of the various organizations of the College. The entire student body and faculty are members of the organization. Under the direction of Miss Blanche Cheney the officers carry into effect the ideals of our College. It is to them that we look for guidance in the betterment of all school affairs. 58 Literature Club President . Secretary- Treasurer Rita Sullivan Mary Rose Sohenson Meeting with Miss Lovell one hour each week have been a group of girls who enjoy the best in literature, and who wish to discuss it and thereby share their enjoy- ment with others. Freedom of thought and speech, a chance to express their own opinion of current literature, finally evolved itself into an urge for creative writing by the members themselves. Each year the organization has been voluntary and the plan followed suggested by the students themselves. One year it was the Pickwick Club while the choice bits of Dickens were read by the members. Later on, for several consecutive years the dignified name of the Purple Quill was adopted. Then the members were concerned in reading and reviewing current literature. 1 This year, however, we have had the most varied and flexible program in the history of the club. In the first semester the members read and discussed the litera- ture of the day, and had several enjoyable parties at which Literature was gently pushed aside. The last semester found a reorganization of the club. As we hinted in the opening paragraph the members now attempt not only to read and discuss the best in poetry and prose, but also to create and in an open forum to criticize help- fully each others work. 59 President Secretary Treasurer Mental Hygiene Club Maejorie Melody Dorothy McNamee Pauline LaRock In past years the Mental Hygiene Club has concerned itself primarily with studying abnormal personality manifestations. Visits to various State Hospitals were included in the club calendar. Upon return from one of these visits, discussions were held and any problems which had arisen were answered. Recently, the club has been delving into psychological experiments. Most of the material has been obtained from psychological manuals. The courses set forth in these manuals have several purposes. First, they aim to give the student an insight into the work of the scientist. They show how the scientist goes to work, as the behavior of the scientist, like the behavior of all living creatures, is subject matter for psychological analysis. Secondly, the student is trained in certain habits, both scholarly and scientific. This training is of value to anyone planning to do work of psychological nature, teaching, social, or medical work. Lastly, these courses aim to acquaint the student with the more important problems. Keen interest has made this club both profitable and enjoyable. 60 Sketching Club President Anna Kiernan Vice-President Olive Eldridge Secretary Helen Blinkhorn Treasurer Mary Rose Sorenson The Sketching Club, under the direction of Mr. Hiscoe, has the distinction of being the only club which is not elective. It is open only to girls of unusual artistic ability, and it is on this basis that new club members are elected each year. Included in the program for the year are a series of demonstrations by the club advisor, Mr. Hiscoe, showing the use of various media. During the club year the girls spend their time developing works in oil and other media which are exhibited at the end of the year. In connection with this closing event on the Club calendar the Sketching Club tea, at which members of the faculty are guests, is held. Some of the newly elected members for the incoming year serve as hostesses at this tea, together with members of longer standing. To be a member of this club is a great honor. Thus each member works hard and cheerily so that at the close of the year she has advanced steadily in her chosen hobby. 61 Dance Club Under the supervision of Miss Marguerite Gourville, Director of Physical Education, the Dance Club of Lowell Teachers College studies the choregraphy of the Modern Dances. Profiting by this, the members then create or originate their own floor patterns. The Modern Dance is so called because it grows out of our own environment and expresses our own feelings and time. This being true, the form of dancing which the club studies could not have happened at any other time. It is the newest and the oldest form of experience in the human art. The fundamental means of locomotion serve as the basis for this dance. These are walking, running, sliding, hopping, skipping, jumping, and leaping. In addition to this the dance involves twisting, bending and rocking — the fundamental skills in rhythm. The Modern Dance is based upon the development of skil l in motor practice to be used throughout life. It may be used as a major outlet for energy, a means of entertainment or a form of physical education. To join the group one does not necessarily have to be an accomplished dancer. Eligibility is based upon interest. The following seniors are enrolled in the club: Edna Foley, Katherine Mahoney, Catherine McKenzie, Myrtle Ripley, Mildred Scanlon, and Anna Waters. Dramatic Club President Doris Doran Vice-President Pauline Mulqueeney Secretary Claire Cosgrove Treasurer Geraldine Sullivan The Dramatic Club affords an opportunity for drama lovers to enjoy and ap- preciate the works of Shakespeare. By welcoming members who are anxious to know more about Shakespeare and dramaturgy, the club serves the College in a broad and helpful way. The traditional custom of presenting a Shakespearean play each year has been followed faithfully. Hamlet was presented in 1934, and A Midsummer Night ' s Dream, in 1935. Under the guidance of Miss Florence Kirby, the Director, through the work of the officers, and the cooperation of all the members, the 1936 Dramatic Club has been one of the outstanding clubs of the College. Unusual social and dramatic programs have been enjoyed. The crowning event of the year was the presentation of The Taming of the Shrew. The cast included our seniors: Evelyn Dwyer, Grace Boehner, and Barbara Horgan, who have shown ability and interest in dramatics during their College careers. The supporting cast was composed largely of Juniors. 63 GREATNESS LILY AND THE MOTH A silent man, I fear. A heckler of his fellow-men Who torments all the day, A babbler or a gossip, I understand his way. But a man of silence, A man who sits and waits And listens to the others Expound their views and hates. Of this man I ' m wary — for I fear he ' s Great. Mary Meehan PRAYER Wind, cool too quick desires With your gentle touch — Sun, warm my sober heart But not too much — Rain, wash clean for me My weary breast — Earth, comfort my soul And give me rest. Mary Victoria Bagshaw On drunken wing the white moth flies. Through waves of moonlight, heavy hung With fragrance from the lilies breath So artfully and softly flung. Oh, he would taste them all tonight, Each lily star of silver grace; The loveliest of all he spies, And hastens to her sweet embrace. From her fair, unseen mate he brings The burden of a precious trust, The subtle mystery of life In lily ' s gold of pollen dust. Enchanted by her perfume musk. He drinks with raptured wings at rest, And cafeless lets the treasure fall Upon her hushed, expectant breast. He satisfies his thirst, and then. As if some tenderness to say, He lays his downy, trembling wing Upon her cheek, and reels away. Virginia Ladd THE COMING OP DAY Like phantoms of the slowly dying night The gray mist shrouds the light of coming day: The cold, black waters far below did whirl And eddy as if playing some wild fantasy Known only to the mystic depths of Night. But far behind the tall, grey distant walls. Which rise as a haunting sceptre of man- made power, An auroral flush above the horizon rose And solemnly, slowly, it calmly wends its way Piercing the pearly haze with its roseate rays. Slowly, slowly, they grasp the filmy veil, Tinting its dusky pall with a flush of life. While the stately towers of man ' s creation stand Baffled by the awe-inspiring pag eant Of Time ' s great drama — the birth of an- other day. Margaret R.

Rita Sullivan MOONLIGHT Moonlight ebbs its way through dark Every glimmering, faltering spark Bathing earth in silver strands And shining ripples on the sands. The lake does take from it A silver sheet edged bit by bit With shadowed designs from each near tree All etched with deepest mystery. Margaret M. Shanahan 66 College Hymn Raise high your voices with praise to our College, Fearless she took us with heart deep and full. In faith she led us with vision complete And kindly watched our faltering feet. O, praise to thee, our College so dear, For thy deep love beyond compare.

Pledge we our word with faith well confirmed, Thy daughters true, with heart ne ' er dismayed, To guide the youth of this our fair land With love and care as tbou command. 0, God, we ask Thee to give us Thy strength To build these lives with glowing faith. Pray give us courage and love divine Dear Lowell, we place our hearts with thine. Dear Lowell, we place our hearts with thine. DeMerritte A.
