Although we are leaving, we ' ll never dispense with The ideals and fond hopes which you gave to us, Which caused every soul to break forth into blossom, Making our faces shine with the light from within. When from thee dear Lowell, we sadly take our leave And follow the paths which lie not far away, We ' ll always remember life ' s lessons you taught us To be forever brave, faithful, loyal, and free. Ethel L. Benson Class Poem There ' ll be days so dark that we ' ll seek in vain For the spirit of L. T. C. Though the darkness hide, She ' ll be there to guide With her outstretched torch flung free. Oh ! what joy there will be to depend on you When the way is dim, and we cannot see. How our glad hearts will yearn and spirit return To her outstretched torch flung free. We will light our torch at the temple door And guard it fearlessly. There will be strength and power in the darkest hour From her outstretched torch flung free. Leora E. Richardson 28 Pegasus in Our Day HERITAGE This is not a part of me Tenements of choking hearts Stones worn smooth by desperate feet Alleys where crime, not courage starts. Give me one sunset over a marsh A hill to climb when cold winds rage A pine tree covered with fallen snow That my heart may know its heritage. Milda M. Upley THE OLD APPLE TREE Pink in all its glory Stands the old apple tree Beneath my window breathing In perfumed ecstacy. Outdoors, over the hills, I know Love holds feast with life God sends the tinted breeze To conjure calm with strife. Rena A. King APPRECIATION The beauty and the wealth of nature ' s dower Is passed unseen by men of trivial mind; They walk unmindful of the dainty flower And crush and bruise with careless step and blind. They stroll beneath the stars but do not know The sacrament of summer days so fair. The rain with sun ' s rays mingling to and fro Seeming to hold the sky and breathe the air. But some blessed ones have seen the glori- ous light Of wonder and of nature and of God; And stars have beauty as if mortal sight Had been denied. Till standing on this sod They watched and felt until their eyelids burned With beauty that the world and life have spurned. Alice L. Ackroyd NIGHTFALL A little white moon and a bright curve of water, — A soft wind sighing where the last leaves cling; An unseen path edged with dusky poppies, A drowsy garden, where no birds sing. Cool night! and the aching feet may be rested O stained with earth ' s toil and travelworn — As rises the mist from the whispering rushes, Balm for the tired heart, peace is born. Hazel E. Inch TO HELEN:— Staunch and brave is the yellow crocus flower As gallantly it pushes aside the warm brown earth; Nothing, nothing at all are the cold and icy blasts. Thy petals spend the ice and snow Thinking only of the golden glow Which breaks forth in the crisp morning air. Even so, Helen, you stemmed the strain and ache Amongst the rocks, and wouldst not think Of what the wind was doing. When All your friends came back with pains and heartaches Annihilating all that spends itself in noth- ingness, You planted fruits of life and beauty in their hearts. Ethel L. Benson I MISS YOU I miss you when the early dawn Breaks on a silent world I miss you when the fragment morn Its rosy mist has hurled. I miss you when sunshine is laid O ' er fields of clovered hay. I miss you in the quiet shade Of swiftly sinking day. I miss you most at eventide When the world in silhouette Crowds life in dreams that never hide The you I ne ' er forget. Mary A. Doyle Class History With wide eyed wonder, sixty freshmen approached the open portals of the Lowell Teachers College to take upon themselves the responsibilities of a college student. Another freshmen class, yes, but one quite different from all predecessors, for this was our class and the year was 1933. Sixty little freshmen Standing in a ring Waiting in their terror For initiation to begin. A week of white stockings, head bands, loudly portraying our names, ringless fingers, and pale faces; and then, wonder of wonders, we were full fledged freshmen. A successful organization needs a guiding hand and ours found refuge with Miss A. Florence Kirby. We proudly introduced her as our faculty advisor at a Yuletide Dance, our first great L. T. C. venture. Under such guidance and the leadership of our class officers, Claire Cosgrove, Betty Stowell, Ruth Kidder, and Nellie Senften, no class could be unsuccessful. Soon finding the truth of the old adage, " All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, " we sought and found pleasure in theatre parties, a picnic at Long Pond, and a unique egg rolling contest, with the prizes, for originality and speed, carried off by Mary Cronin, Leora Richardson, and Barbara Thompson. We also have pleasant memories of a " Wienie roast " given for us by our senior sisters, whose spirit of welcome so warmed our hearts, that we shall always hold a place reserved for them there. Time marches on and brings with it a splendid opportunity for our first week- end at Hampton Beach. Days of fun and happiness, well compensated us for our few inches of alloted bed space at night. We also learned that a bath tub can quite easily be converted into a bed should company unexpectedly arrive for the night, although we cannot vouch as to the comfort of such an arrangement. Memories of our fresh- man week-end that was so well-attended, and so well-enjoyed will always be with us. So we ended our first year which was filled with much happiness and joy. It was with a feeling of possessive pride that we returned to our college as Soph- omores. It was with a new feeling of class solidarity that we elected our class officers. Being cognizant of Claire Cosgrove ' s fine guidance in our Freshmen year, we re- elected her as our president. With such officers as Ruth Mitchell, Ruth McGarry, and Anna Rynne to assist her, we expected a delightful year. Our first social function was a theatre party in Lowell. We had chosen to see " The Count of Monte Cristo. " Our choice proved to be a wise one, for the picture was so romantically satisfying that it kept the girls exclaiming for several days. One of the most entertaining parties the class held was the costume party. Never was a more colorful group gathered at the college; there were all kinds of characters from colonial maidens to bedizened old ladies. An impromptu, not to say hilarious, entertainment was presented to the enjoyment of all. 30 We had been anticipating our trip to Hampton with a great deal of pleasure. Those of us who had been there before were especially enthusiastic. The weather was perfect, our house was most comfortable and we were all in the highest of spirits. What with bicycling, tennis, visiting, and dancing we all had a splendid week-end. Knowing that Mr. Weed, our President, was to leave us, we wished to show him some instance of our love and appreciation. We honored Mr. and Mrs. Weed with a banquet at which we presented him with a gift as a token of our esteem. We felt we were losing a true friend and advisor. We faced Junior year with great anticipation for it was rich in promise of eventful happenings. For some of us it was to be the final year of our association with Lowell and this knowledge spurred us on to renewed effort in study and social activities. We inaugurated the year, most appropriately, with a tea to welcome our new President and Mrs. Dugan. We were all charmed by the friendliness of our honored guests, and looked forward to a most enjoyable year together. In November, we joined with our sister class, the Freshmen, in giving a dance. With such combined talents as existed in the two classes, the dance could not help but be successful. Our house party at Hampton had now assumed the position of an established annual event. If possible, the party was even more pleasant than in past years. Every member of the class keeps glowing memories of Hampton Beach. At last we came to the climax of all our social event, Junior Week. We had been more or less preparing for it for some time, but now we entered upon a period of intense activity. The week itself was upon us before we realized it. On Monday afternoon, we had a May celebration on the campus. Our charming queen, Mary Jo O ' Donnell, and her court maidens made an unforgettable picture. Then we serenaded our Alma Mater at a Step Sing, conducted by Mary Ennis. Tuesday, the class at- tended the theatre in Lowell and enjoyed a most appetizing dinner later. The fol- lowing day found us at that most edifying of class functions, the banquet. We pre- sented Miss Kirby, our judicious faculty advisor, with a gift, a symbol of our regard for her. The class was willing to vote this affair a most delectable one. On Thursday, two one-act plays were presented to the school under Miss Kirby ' s direction. The plays were " The Sun " by John Galsworthy in which Claire Cosgrove, Doris Doran, and Mary Doyle played, and " Lonesome-Like " by H. Brighouse with Ethel Benson, Mary Jo O ' Donnell, Thelma Annis, and Mary Grace as characters. Following the plays, the class gave a charming faculty tea in Miss Kirby ' s room. Friday evening brought that crowning event, the Junior Prom. The soft lights, colorful dresses, and handsome escorts made the evening a memorable one. So crowded had the year been that it seemed scarcely possible it could end so soon. But commencement exercises made it all too vivid, and once more we left Lowell; some of us forever. The end for which the first was made, the senior year, the crowning point of a college career. Our excellent judgment was again shown early in the year by our choice of senior officers, Ruth McGarry, Alice Comer, Margaret Doolin, and Marion Barton. 31 Lakeview was the scene of our first social venture, and the mention of " scav- enger bunt " will always recall that afternoon ' s fun of a quest for strange articles with no place to find them. The chilly fall air only warmed our spirits, as we trudged back to the cottage carrying our strange discoveries and perhaps even inventions. We were well rewarded for our efforts, however, since our efficient firemen and cooks were waiting for us with warmth and refreshments. To Miss Kirby, we owe our sincere gratitude for her lovely luncheons. The pic- ture of her room transformed into a grand dining salon for the occasion of our first senior luncheon is one that will remain with us for many years to come. Business has a very important and definite place in the final year of college; and if our yearbook was to be the best yet, as we certainly hoped, no time was to be lost. Consequently our executive staff, with Ethel Benson, Editor-in-Chief; Rita LaBelle, her assistant; and Leora Richardson, Business Manager, set quickly to work, and every Senior ' s hopes soared high. January eleventh, dignity, sentiment, a little heart-throb, and realization for perhaps the first time of the feeling that lies stored in each senior heart, as she dons those symbols of her station, the cap and gown. This solemn occasion could hardly have been climaxed in a more pleasant way than by attending a delicious luncheon given by Miss Kirby at her home in our honor. With Miss Kirby and Miss Kendrick as our charming hostesses and President Dugan as guest, our joy abounded to such heights that no words are adequate to describe our feelings and heartfelt happiness. February, valentines, hearts, how appropriate a setting for " Cupid ' s Ball, " our first senior dance, held at the school, borrowed for the evening by Cupid himself. Whatever is the cause of all these little groups of seniors, one peering over an- other ' s shoulder, and why all this passing of large white envelopes? Why of course, the proofs of their pictures have arrived. Truly some are " photographs of distinc- tion. " We may at last see ourselves as others see us. As a final gesture towards those, our delightful Sophomore sisters, we gave a coffee party in their honor. In only a few years, they will be the senior sisters, and we are proud to have them follow in our footsteps. Once more the May vacation rolls round, offering the last opportunity for a gay happy week-end at Hampton. Let us not say final, so definite and cold, let us hope that perhaps some day in the future, this Class of 1937 will once again gather for a happy get-together such as these week-ends have offered. Senior Week, the Day of Days grows nearer and nearer, and thrills galore are found in banquets and plans for the Reception. With graduation so close at hand, there is a little tendency to feel the eyes grow misty as we reminisce on the past four years, with their abundant joys and, yes, perhaps even a few terrors (now so dearly remembered) as examinations approached, but with a never ending sincere love, loyalty, and gratitude to this our Alma Mater, and to these our teachers, who with their constant patience and fervent effort, have helped to make us what we are.

Rena King, Betty Stowell Eating Spare 37 The March of Time It is a warm clear day in April. A soft breeze is blowing through the open window of a study, where a young girl is sitting at a desk, opening her morning mail. Among the letters is one from a publisher asking if they can expect another volume in her series of " Girls Who Achieved. " With great enthusiasm she immediately pens an answer — Dear Sir : You can expect my next volume in the very near future. Last evening I attended my Class Reunion. Our hostess told us how closely she had watched the Class of ' 37 of L. T. C. Then she turned the dial of her television set, and there flashed before my eyes a steady procession of my classmates, as they travel along the highway of life toward their chosen goals. This furnished a most inspirational and appropriate subject for a book, intended to challenge youth. With great joy and pride, I shall begin my account of their accomplishments, immediately. With great fervor she began to jot down the highlights of what she had seen the evening before, — Rita LaBelle, forsaking her intended career to devote her time to the Sports World, and considered by all " La Belle " basketball player. Rena King, sports ' an- nouncer on the N.B.C. hookup. Her past experience as a sportswoman, together with her rapid speech enable her to follow each play accurately and to retell it to her audience immediately. Betty Stowell is Advertising Manager for a Sporting Goods Concern. The advertisements carrying her dynamic illustrations reveal Betty ' s enthusiasm and originality. Leora Richardson is still doing extensive work on " Chromosomes — How and Why They Go Wrong " — even to writing poems about them. Theresa Shanahan, in collaboration with her aunt, has just completed three volumes entitled, " The Boy Across the Way. " She couldn ' t seem to conform her wealth of material to one vol- ume. Barbara Thompson and Milda Upley, co-authors of several nature books, are running a bakery shop. Their specialty is birthday cakes, with a motto, " Everyday is Somebody ' s Birthday. " Anna Rynne, has followed in her brother ' s footsteps, by presenting a new book of children ' s stories — " Tiny Tot ' s Tales. " The fascinating illustrations in the book are by that famous artist, Hazel Inch. To complete a perfect picture, they are to be used on a new series of radio programs — " The Children ' s Hour, " where Ruth McGarry, the girl with the sweet voice, will thrill the children with her story telling. Catherine Livingston ' s pleasing voice has merited her a permanent place on the 4-H Club Radio Program. Her original readings serve as an outlet for her literary talent. " Dot " McNamee ' s monologues have received many favorable comments. She has started a new movement in regard to the use of dramatization in the school. Margaret Doolin ' s popularity as a reader, is further proof of her dramatic ability. Maybeth Gralton ' s articles in local newspapers are so commendable that she 39 has been invited to go on the air with her Human Side of the News. " Jackie " Phan- euf is a supervisor of penmanship. (She also gave lectures on Graphology over the radio; that is, until the day she was seized with a fit of sneezing during one of the broadcasts. Her sponsor was a manufacturer of a hayfever cream, — their slogan being " Stop That Annoying Sneeze Today. " ) Nora Miskell is a teacher of the first grade, where thirty-five little tots have the benefit of a teacher with a perfect disposition, from whom they unconsciously learn, " A Smile Will Go A Long Long Way. " Virginia Wood found a name she liked better and has adopted it permanently. She is resuming her former work by starting a private kindergarten. When New Hampshire lost its main attraction to California, " Dot " Webb immediately moved to Los Angeles, where she married the boy. She has an exclusive nursery school for the children of the people who say, annually, with a yawn, " I ' ll think I ' ll winter in California this year. " Mildred Collins is teaching in Hawaii. She is establishing quite a reputation for her activity program and remedial reading. Helen Trudel is an instructor in a Girl ' s Private School. She has just written a book on social etiquette, entitled, " The Per- fect Lady. " Ethel Benson has just been appointed dean of a Girl ' s College, where her unusual power of organization and high ideals are sure to bring her success in this capacity. Sophie Ras is a gym instructor in a girl ' s academy. She is noted for her Dancing Classes where her struggling pupils endeavor to " Swing It, " as well as their most able teacher. Janet Collins, music instructor in an institution for the blind. Her cheerful disposition is like a ray of sunshine to those whose days are so dark. Clara Marquis, a famed violinist, and Ruth Martin, an equally famous pianist, are on a concert tour in Europe, during which they are to perform before royalty. Mary Ennis is making a concert tour and also giving illustrated lectures of her travels. They have proven so interesting that her friend, Doris Doran, has taken it upon herself to write a summary of these lectures in novel form, entitled, " A Fair Young Thing Faces the World. " Mona Davison, leader of a snappy girls ' band, the Rhythmettes, has caused Ina Ray Hutton to fade into oblivion. Rose Desmond doesn ' t feel she could find happiness in merely being the " tops, " as far as vocalists go. She ' s sacrificing her brilliant singing career for love. Phyllis Callard is outstanding for the organization and direction of one of the best choirs in the state. Margaret Carter has a teaching position, but also finds time to carry on an ex- tensive program of social activities in her church. Alice Ackroyd is still rushing about from one club meeting to another. She is employed in a Publishing House as a proofreader, where she can utilize her broad knowledge of English. Eleanor Murphy, as President of the Woman ' s City Club, does extensive social work. (The society page described her at one of these morning coffee parties as seated behind a towering silver urn, in a gown of coronation blue, topped with cara- cul.) Mary Connolly, as a social worker, lends a helping hand to those less fortunate, which is characteristic of all Mary ' s efforts. 40 Marion Barton ' s talents have carried her far. Her lovely pictures grace the covers of a leading magazine and her sketches on greeting cards are most original. Thelma Annis is showered with compliments over her recent exhibition of paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts. Thelma Hillson is manager of the Fashion Department of the Ladies Home Journal. The rhythm in her sketches reveals her musical back- ground. Helene Cox is a designer of " Clothes for the College Girl, " and also serves as a model for her sister in Hairdressers ' Shows. Mary Doyle ' s smart hat shop, " The Band Box, " is where all the " 400 " go in search of something unique in chapeaux. It is here that Alice Comer makes a charm- ing and convincing hat model. Margaret Nye has opened a Gown Shoppe in Boston. She ' s cutting up these days, but its all part of the business. " Betty " Baldwin, a buyer of Jay ' s, has just returned from Paris by plane. Her chic ensembles are the envy of all. Mary Chesworth will maintain her Knitting Shoppe, and also organize Knitting Clubs throughout the city as she believes married women should work. Helen Crane has dared to intrude where other women hesitated. She is con- nected with the stock exchange due to her intensive study of the stock market du- ring college. Margaret Fowler ' s course " Training the Memory, " is most commend- able. The inspiration for her excellent work is the arrival of a letter each day, post- marked N. J. Irene Profio has a tea room, which is patronized largely for her delicious sand- wiches. Her husband gave her an automobile for a wedding present; now it ' s no longer necessary to borrow one when she feels the urge to travel. Mary G. Cronin, having turned a hobby into a career, is seen gadding about with her beloved camera. All celebrities are kept on their guard; she dotes on catch- ing them in an off moment. Mary Jo O ' Donnell has built a new home in Beverly Hills. Wherever she goes she is overwhelmed by autograph seekers. She paused for a moment — a pensive expression crossed her face as she added these lines to her notes — Time Marches On, and with it the Class of ' 37 — the steady tick of the clock seems to set a rhythm by which they can march, slowly and confidently onward, to perform their small duties in this vast universe. As she laid down her pencil, her hand strayed to a well-worn copy of her favorite poems, which she quickly opened to a selection by Edwin Markham — " To each one is given a marble to carve for a wall; A stone that is needed to heighten the beauty of all; And only his soul has the magic to give it grace; And only his bands have the cunning to put it in place. Yes, the task that is given each one, no other can do ; So the errand is waiting; it has waited through ages for you. And now you appear; and the hushed ones are turning their gaze To see what you do with your ch ance in the chamber of days. " Ruth M.

A. A. and the printing of an undergraduate magazine entitled Quips. To further our brilliant progress, a fine budget system was begun in our Sophomore year. Our Junior activities started, when the class, under the supervision of Social Chairman, Alice McCarthy, conducted the Freshmen Initiation. Soon afterwards, we entertained the Freshmen at the Freshmen-Junior Tea. Tea was served in the setting of a " Gypsy Tearoom. " With the return of Section V, the Juniors are anticipating Junior Week, gradu- ation, and a week-end together. With this final party, we shall bid a fond goodbye to our classmates who are not returning, and a hearty " au revoir " to those whom we shall see again as Seniors. 46 Sophomores President . . . Madelyn O ' Neil Vice-President Patricia Doherty Secretary . ■ Faith Bullock Treasurer Dorothy Grondine The Class of ' 39 made the first venture towards its social history when it joined forces with its sister class and sponsored the Junior-Frosh Hop of November, 1935. We completed our administrative organization with the selection of Miss Mar- guerite Gourville as honorary member of our class, the following February. In March we held a luncheon in honor of Miss Gourville with President and Mrs. Dugan as our guests. The year was brought to a most successful conclusion with the buffet supper and step-singing. We began our Sophomore social calender with a hike and " weinie roast. " In November, an informal dance in the form of a real Western Round-up was our next get-to-gether. In March, we had a Theatre Party followed by a supper and dance. The Seniors gave us a Coffee Party on St. Patrick ' s Day which was enjoyed im- mensely. We are now looking forward to the Spring House Party at Hampton. 47 Fresh resnmen President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Josephine Hourihan Barbara Annis Pauline Shugrue Ann Donald In the first week of the class of ' 40 ' s college career, our Junior sisters efficiently carried out their traditional course of initiating the Freshmen. Later, under the sponsorship of the Juniors, a tea was given to us, which signified to the college at large that we had been accepted by the upperclassmen as pals and fellow students. We realized that we needed an advisor to lend a guiding hand so we chose Mr. DeMerritte A. Hiscoe. With the combined efforts of Mr. Hiscoe and the officers the class enjoyed a pleasant year. At the time of this writing, the class is planning a delightful stay at Hampton Beach during the Spring vacation. Our happy days as Freshmen will be terminated on Class Day, when the Freshmen will unite with the Sophomores to give the Jun- iors and Seniors a day which will always be cherished in memory by them.

" Indeed it has become so in our college through the splendid work of our Music Department. We are deeply grateful for the many and varied musical activities offered at the Lowell Teachers College, the only Teachers College in Massachusetts that trains music supervisors in addition to teacher training. Schumann once said, ' " It is music ' s lofty mission to shed life on the depths of human hearts. " It is our sincere hope that we have, in some small part, accomplished that mission. The compositions written this year by Junior and Senior music students, under the direction of Miss Mabel B. Wilson, were excellent examples of originality and proved, as John Sherman has said, " Music exalts and inspires the mind with lofty ideals. " The Seniors contributed an interesting collection of descriptive orchestral selections, inspired by stories from " East of the Sun, and West of the Moon. " Music students are especially appreciative of the College Orchestra, which has given them valuable experience in conducting. The officers elected for 1936-1937, Mona G. Davison, President; Janet Collins, Vice-President; Clara Marquis, Sec- retary-Treasurer; Eleanor Powers and Doriscey Florence, Librarians. The orches- tra has participated in several college functions and has accompanied community singing. Preparations are now being made for the most important activity of the year, our Graduation. This year a new organization, the College Choir, was formed, which has won a place in the hearts of all students. Its eighteen members were chosen from the entire student body, after auditions were given. The choir has faithfully practiced twice a week since organized in September, and has been a source of real enjoyment and pleasure to the faculty and student body. At the time of this writing, the choir has perfected a large repertoire and is eagerly planning to give concerts at many of the Teachers Colleges in Massachusetts. The Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Grace G. Pierce, gives promise of a splendid performance May 20th, when it will present Humperdinck ' s opera, " Han- sel and Gretel. " We are extremely happy that some of our music students have made arrange- ments to attend the Eastern Music Educators Conference at Buffalo, New Y ork, April thirteenth to seventeenth. The concerts, addresses, clinics, and demonstra- tions will prove invaluable to prospective Music Supervisors. Mona G. Davison 51 Glee Club President ■ .

Officers, the various Heads of Sports, the General and the Admiral, and the representatives of each class. The members are President, Betty Stowell; Vice-President, Rena King; Secretary, Janice Kenney; Treasurer, Rita LaBelle; Sports Manager, Teresa Grady; Assistant Sports Manager, Edith Pekkanen; Army General, Mary Cronin; Navy Admiral, Dorothy McNamee; and the four representatives, Senior, Anna Rynne; Junior, Ruth Shaw; Sophomore, Thelma Roberts; and Freshman, Rita Byrt. The A. A. tries to sponsor as many and varied sports as facilities and time will allow. The activities included in the program are field hockey, archery, teniquoit, golf, bowling, badminton, ping-pong, riflery, riding, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and horse-shoes. Besides these major sports, the Association also enjoys such affairs as roller skating parties, supper hikes, and camping trips. Because of popular demand, we conducted several classes in social dancing. We also enjoyed three Alumnae Nights, hockey, basketball, and spring sports. To culminate each sports season, the A. A. holds an Army-Navy Day. Every- one, including the Faculty, secretaries, and janitors, belongs to either one of the sides. Excitement runs high with songs and cheers urging each Honor Team to vic- tory! 55 School and Society League Lowell Teachers College has a most democratic Student Government. Every- one, both students and teachers are part of it. It is known as the School and Society League. A group of officers, elected from the school at large, constitute what is known as the Student Council and they directly represent the student body. This Council meets once a week and it is their duty to discuss and try to solve, with the aid of the faculty, problems of the students. Miss Cheney, Dean of the College, is faculty advisor of this Council. At Thanksgiving, the School and Society League give a number of baskets to needy Lowell families. Food and clothing are distributed by the girls. Once a year, at Easter- time, the school also sponsors a Formal Dance, for the student body. Also in the Spring, the Pre sident and Vice-President are sent to a conference in New York with the hope of obtaining new ideas and suggestions for the College. The Council for 1936-1937 was made up of the following officers: President, Helen Trudel; Vice-President, Rose Desmond; Secretary -Treasurer, Mary Augus- ta; Traffic-Chairman, Eleanor Howe; Social-Chairman, Alice McCarthy; Head- Hostess, Mary O ' Brien; and Community Chairman, Mary Monahan. 57 Art Club A group of girls, who are artistically inclined, have been meeting with Miss Josephine Chute one hour a week. The Art Club was organized to give the girls of our College, who are interested in art, an opportunity to express their creative ability and to try out new art experiences. The phases of art carried on by the mem- bers were of an individual nature. Some of the activities carried on during the past year were knitting, crocheting, finger-painting, block-printing, designing, and carving of book-ends. One of the purposes of the Art Club has been to assist in making our College rooms more attractive. The girls have made curtains, cushions, doilies, and similiar articles for this purpose. Besides the manual side of the club work, the girls have also enjoyed many social functions. The Art Club will always be remembered for its lovely parties. The attractiveness and uniqueness of the party decorations have been outstanding throughout the College. During the past year the Art Club officers were: President, Catherine Lahan; Vice-President, Mary Chesworth; Secretary, Dorothy Webb; Treasurer, Mary Kiernan. 58 Girl Scout Club The Girl Scout Club, under the leadership of Miss Frances Clark, with Miss Mabel Wilson and Miss Mabel Turner as her assistants, is one of the largest clubs in the college. Where could you have more fun than with us, hiking, cooking out of doors, doing handcrafts, community service, and camping? As proof of the interest shown in this club, may we mention the fact that nineteen girls were invested as Tenderfoot Scouts this year. Much interest has been shown in the various craft groups, such as knitting, wood carving, and puppet making. We have numbered among our guests several outstanding workers in Girl Scouting. Two of these are Miss Helen Potter, former State Director and Miss Oleda Schrottky, the Girl Scout Play Lady. Our local officers who do much to help and encourage us are: Director, Mrs. Harry Kershaw; Commissioner, Mrs. Charles Cooke; and Camp Director, Mrs. Gordon R. Williams. This year, being the tenth anniversary of the club, we have planned a birthday celebration, with a reunion for former members. Of course, the crowning event of the year is our trip to Camp Runels which is always anticipated with much pleasure. 59 Mental Hygiene Club " Health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of — a blessing that money cannot buy — Walton. " The Mental Hygiene Club has as its leader Mr. Herman Brase. The work of the club is to study problem cases of school children and how they may be prevented. Each year the club visits three or four institutions to view problem cases. This year the club went to the Gardner State Hospital, Lancaster Industrial School for Girls, and Waverley School for Boys. After returning from these trips, different cases were discussed and the methods used in caring for the patients. Many of the other club periods were given over to Mr. Brase. He spoke on the following subjects: ' " Why people dream, " " Individual characteristics of people, " and " Hypnotism and What It Means. " The club also believes in practicing what is preached about integrating phases of the individual ' s life. We mix business and pleasure, by having delightful parties at frequent intervals. With the co-operation of all members and the following officers: President, Louise O ' Brien; Vice-President, Ruth Shaw; Secretary, Marjorie Slade; Treasurer, Claire LeDuc; Social Chairman, Alice McCarthy; Clinical Chairman, Margaret Carter, the year 1936 and 1937 proved most successful for the Mental Hygiene Club. 60 Dance Club The Dance Club, this year, has gained much pleasure and enjoyment while studying the choregraphy of the Modern Dance. A particular study was made of time, space, and force as applied to the Locomotive and Axial Movements of the Body. The group worked also in the field of rhythmical analysis, deciding what were the note patterns of various studies. The club was divided into four groups. Each group worked out several original dance patterns which were presented and then executed by the club. In view of the club ' s collaboration with the Glee Club in the presentation of the Operetta, " Hansel and Gretel, " a good part of the time was spent in working out a witch ' s dance for this affair. The club enjoyed " Pinocchio, " brought to life by Edwin Strawbridge and his ballet company, and the performance of Doris Humphrey and Charles Weidman at the John Hancock Hall in Boston. The dancing group, under the direction of Miss Marguerite L. Gourville, and with Miss Anna Bancroft as pianist, includes the Misses Barbara Annis, Mary Bagshaw, Vivian Burns, Frances Conley, Patricia Doherty, Teresa Grady, Mary Hoellrich, Margaret Meeban, Margaret Noonan, Margaret Nye, Sophie Ras, Frances Rosenberg, and Betty Stowell. 61 Sketching Club The Sketching Club is composed of members who are selected by its advisor, Mr. DeMerritte Hiscoe, because of their artistic ability and interest. During the club periods each week the girls develop skill in using the media already familiar to them, and experiment with new media in which they are interested. They are en- couraged and guided by their able advisor who gives both personal and group dem- onstrations of the technique used in applying each medium. Several times during the year, short trips are taken to nearby museums and places of interest to artists. In the spring, the culminating club activities include a day in Boston where a museum visit, supper banquet, and theatre party are enjoyed, and a final Sketching Club Exhibition and Tea, at which time the work done by the club members is on display. With the able assistance of the club officers: President, F. Thelma Annis; Vice- President, Virginia Ladd ; Secretary, Virginia Wood ; Treasurer, Mary McCormack, every member has tried hard to uphold the standard of work set up by the previous members of the club and to raise that standard just a little higher than they found it. 62 Dramatic Club The Dramatic Club, under the skillful guidance of A. Florence Kirby, the Director, is well known for the opportunity which it gives to any youthful aspiring actress. It always has the largest enrollment of any of the clubs. Here one is taught the play and its structure, settings, and characterization. Each student experiences the creative joy of being an integral part of a living drama. The club has established the custom of choosing for presentation only Shakes- pearean dramas. In 1934, Hamlet; 1935, A Mid-summer Night ' s Dream, and 1936, The Taming of the Shrew. The play chosen for this year ' s presentation is the well- know n comedy, As You Like It. With the help of the officers chosen for 1936-1937, President, Doris Doran; Vice-President, Maybeth Gralton; Secretary, Geraldine Sullivan; Treasurer, Ethel L. Benson, the members immediately proceeded to analyze the play and gain the maximum amount of enjoyment from it. In the cast are many Seniors who are aptly supported by the Sophomores and Freshmen. The Seniors are Ethel Benson, Mar- garet Doolin, Doris Doran, Mary Doyle, Maybeth Gralton, Hazel Inch, Rena King, Ruth Mahoney, and Nora Miskell. Interspersed with rehearsals were gala and colorful social events. Unique games, attractive decorations, and a variety of refreshments made these socials, events which will long be remembered. 63 IS3 ' ; mm
