FR ' A NCKS CLARK TOE KNOLL 193 DEDICATION The members of the graduating class dedicate the Knoll to Miss Frances Clark, our " sister graduate " , upon the occasion of her retirement from our college. Though her years of active service have come to a resting stage, we know her interest in the students and their life here at Lowell will not die. Through the years that lie ahead she will always be considered a part of the Lowell Teachers College. The time and thought she has so unsparingly given in our behalf we hope have not been in vain. Her fairness, sympathetic understanding, and friendly interest in our well-being have been greatly appreciated. She has inspired us not only as a teacher, but as a person- ality. On every occasion, she has been a good scout. At this time we make her hon- orary member of the class of thirty-nine, happy that she will be one of us at com- mencement. 1939 THE KNOLL ADMINISTRATION James Dugan, President Your class is the first to have completed its full College course under my adminis- tration. We entered Lowell Teachers College together and we have worked and grown together, in these past four years — short but eventful years in the history of our in- stitution. You have served your Alma Mater with untiring and unselfish zeal, and with a devotion of which we are very proud. You have made the College a better place by your attendance here. If it is true that the past is but a pledge of the future, you will surely do more abundantly the good work you have done here. We at Lowell Teachers College have endeavored to inspire and prepare you for a life of success and happiness and it is my earnest prayer that our efforts may be successful. THE KNOLL 1932- Blanche A. Cheney, Dean History, Government Sociology To the Class of 1939 I wish to extend my sincere congratulations on your steady growth in self-direction, self-reliance and self-control. It seems to me that you have raised student government in this College to an even higher level through your intel- ligent leadership and your openminded fellowship. Through the initiative of some, the cooperation of many and the responsibility of all, you have made our college life richer and happier. May I express the fervent hope that you will carry over into your own schools this democratic way of life. 1939 THE KNOLL Josephine W. Chute Drawing Practical Arts Sarah E. Lovell, M. A.

We, the members ot the student- council, have tried to raise the standards of student-government at Lowell Teachers College to even higher levels. Good leader- ship depends upon good fellowship. Any success we have gained this year, we attrib- ute to the loyal support of the students themselves and to the never-failing inter- est of the faculty. As you look back on the School and Society League of 1938-1939, may you always remember that every member of our faculty has gladly given time and energy to serve us, and that the whole student-body has been more active and better informed on the policies of our student-government than ever before. To these two accomplishments we point with pride. We have merely led the way. You have been the actual performers! SCHOOL and SOCIETY LEAGUE 1939 THE KNOLL CLASSES Bom and Educated in Everett. Graduated from: Sargent School of Physical Education. Marywood College. Boston University. Teaching record: Physical Education Instruc- tor at State Teachers Col- lege, Fitchburg; the State Teachers College, Salem; and since January 193o, the State Teachers College, Lowell. MARGUERITE L. GOURVILLE THE KNOLL 1932_. SENIOR CLASS ADVISOR We have indeed been fortunate in having Miss Gourville as our friend and advisor. In so many ways has she made these four short years here at Lowell a more happy, memorable experience! She has been keenly concerned with our progress from the start, and has been so patient and unselfish in offering helpful suggestions to carry us over difficult places. Our problems have been her problems. Her understanding, en- couragement, and idealism have been most inspiring. She has not only worked with us, she has played with us, and has been one of us in all of our activities and fes- tivities. This comradeship has brought every one much happiness and jollity! We love and admire her greatly. We can only hope that she fully realizes how deeply grateful we are to her for what she has been to us — teacher, guide, inspiration, — pal. 1939 THE KNOLL YEAR BOOK STAFF Editor-jn-Chiei ■: Margaret Hcdstrom Assistant Editor: Evclyna Anderson Business Manager: Helen Barrett Photography: Margaret L. Athridgc Literary Editor: Dorothy Marshall Assistant Editor: Rita M. Bruno Am EDITOR: Kathleen I). O ' Donnell Assisiani Humor: Mabellc Birtwell Mi sk Editor: Janet A. Ratcliflfc Spokis Editor: Thelma II. Roberts It is my privilege to express my appre- ciation to a most cooperative and loyal group. The Nineteen Thirty-nine Knoll staff has been a unit of harmony and compati- bility. While each member had a particular department for which she was responsible, every block of work has been the mutual concern of all. Our staff would have been incomplete without the willing and competent assist- ance of Miss Gourville whose interest was enthusiastic and sincere at all times. I am grateful also to the Seni or Class which has been ever ready with helpful sug- gestions and has shown its confidence in each step the staff has taken. To Mr. Dugan and the faculty may 1 express my gratitude for their constructive criticism and active interest in the Knoll, which has helped to make my task as Editor a most pleasant one. TH NOLL I93L I deem it both an honor and a pleasure to be able to serve as President to such a sympathetic and cooperative class. To President Dugan I wish to express sincere appreciation. Certainly no College in the land has been blessed with such leadership. His help and counsel will ever be remembered. To the faculty let me express the pleasure it has been to work with you, and for you, these past four years. You have ever been ready to assist the Senior Class in its tasks. I hope that your help will be repleted in the lives of your students in later life. SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS President: Madclyn T. O ' Neil Vice Pres.: Mabelb B. Birtwell Secretary: Margaret L.
