We have retained our normal curriculum and the beloved traditions and institutions of Lowell; we have revised our habits of thinking, our views of intercultural rela- tionships, our expectations of the future. With the changing of our ideals came a more complete understanding of the part which we and our profession are to play in the future. We have been aware that teaching is an integral part of the fundamentals of democracy; on it depends the coming years of peace. We shall attack with confidence the task that lies before us. As an informal companion in your perusal of this work may we introduce the Owl, whose ancient and honorable lineage has ever ascribed to wisdom. l3 S cl iss I c DEDICATION As our class advisor you have guided us through the placid but sometimes turbulent waters of our four years of living here at L.T.C. You have approached us as adults; rendered us workable solutions to our problems; maintained a balance of sobriety and humor . . . and unselfishly shared with us your visions of tomorrow ' s educational treasure. In grateful appreciation we dedicate the Knoll of 1945 to you, Mr. Brase. HERMAN H. BRASE ADMINISTRATION To our faculty we extend nothing but the fullest appreciation for giving us a yardstick marked with ideals of scholarship, service, and character with which to measure life. THE PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE The Class of 1945 has lived through a more trying four years than any class in the history of our college. You have been called upon to make many difficult adjustments in your homes and in your college life and you have won our respect and admiration for the un- faltering spirit which you have shown in meeting them. Never has there been a greater need for good teaching than exists at the present time and it is my sincere prayer that all who may come under your influence may get from you training and inspiration which will go far toward making the world a better place than we have known. May the years to come bring you all success and hap- piness. JAMES DUGAN President DEAN :.r M . MARGUERITE L. GOURVILLE FACULTY Herman H. Brase A.B.: M.A. 8 -% Josephine W. Chute Charles O.

HMftf ILffl Investiture Early in our Freshman year came the war which was to color vividly if not dominate our four years at Lowell. The first two of these years were studded with air raid drills and blackouts, Red Cross courses and USO dances. Our Junior and Senior years brought rationing and OPA restrictions, and intense interest in the progress of the war. Our limited social program provided time for our novel Freshman dance, the " Bunny Hop, " our delightful Mothers ' Teas, our jolly Big-and Little-Sister par- ties and thos e unforgettable weeks at Hampton. The highlights of our Junior year were the Junior Prom and the bril- liant College Show, " Holiday with Music. " Along with the fun and fellowship, we shall take with us from Lowell memories of. . . long hours of study . . . tests passed and tests flunked . . . scouring the campus for biology specimens . . . thirty-page his- tory problems. . . " the three to one ratio! " Our life at Lowell, academic and social, war-conscious and frivolous, has been an experience that will have an unending influence on our future. We, the Class of 1945, hope that we have left something of ourselves in return. [18] Senior Class Officers Whatever the Class of 1945 has ac- complished whether it was a serious contribution or just an evening of fun, it would have been superficial and worthless without the inspiring leadership of the class officers. These four girls, on whom the direction of the class depended, have tackled problems and parties with equa- nimity and a sense of humor. For three years Eleanor Mangan has been President of the Glass of 1945. Dur- ing this time she has used her executive ability, her poise, and her sense of social values to our advantage. The Vice-President of the Senior Class, Mary Gill, has filled more than an honor- ary position. While the President was at practice school for the first semester, Mary capably took over all the duties of the office, including that of serving on the School and Society League board. It was the Vice-President who presided at the initiation of the Senior Lounge. In her calmly efficient manner Virginia Gile has managed accurately and well the secretarial matters of the class. Connie Dane, with her geni us for finance, and her infinite patience in ex- tracting class dues and budget fees from her procrastinating classmates, has been an excellent Treasurer. Indeed these girls have warranted the faith placed in them by the Class of 1945. But a tribute to the officers of the Senior Class without mention of our advisor Mr. Brase would be inadequate and meaning- less. He has been their beacon and their ballast.

The Knoll Staff Amid a seeming confusion of cuts, old Yearbooks, " dummy pages, " and 18- point type at our Wednesday and Friday meetings, we of the Yearbook Staff of the Class of ' 45, have completed this volume of the Knoll. It contains pictures and thumbnail sketches of you as Seniors: it includes snap shots and notes about your sports and organizations, your social activities and your undergraduate friends. We hope that in years to come this record of your college life will help you to recall more vividly your years at Lowell. In this book are integrated many ex- periences of the staff — amusing and other- wise. We shall remember forever the grimy task of cleaning the Yearbook room, the strenuous feat of lugging equip- ment, the suspense of " obtaining " Year- books from the library! That the 1945 Knoll is progressive is evidenced by two innovations — the addition of Junior asso- ciate members, and the origination of individual money-making schemes. Realizing that the staff alone could not have accomplished this, we wish to express our appreciation to our advisor, Mr. Brase, and to the student body for their interest and cooperation.

" It was the initiation of the Freshmen which really got their year ' s program " hopping. " After initiation which lasted for the first week of school, the " little sisters " were given a party. Much remembered in the minds of all Juniors is the week at Hampton Beach— AND THOSE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS FOUR IN A BED!! Something new and different! Three Juniors; Sylvia Cohen, Martha Basile, and Pat Sullivan working on the Seniors ' Year Book. Like the rest of the college, the Junior Class has not escaped the touch of war. They felt most deeply the effects of restric- tions, and the recruiting of the women ' s services. To the first they relinquished the traditional Junior Prom; to the second they contributed three of their members- Peg Gavin, Virginia Conway, and Millie Adams. Miss Neilson is their advisor. She is easy to describe, easy to know and easy to like; five feet of lively spirit and friendliness.

This year, especially, they deserve the title, for with their cus- tomary " punch " and enthusiasm they reached the quota in the War Bond Cam- paign. The result? A jeep! Socially, also, the Sophomores appear to be " tops, " their numerous class parties are invariably successful. Among those chalked up to their credit are a Christmas party, a trip to the Ice Capades, and a series of informal noontime gatherings for dancing and community singing. The special event of this year was the Investiture Tea held in honor of the parents of their " Big Sis- ters. " Coming up before the year closes are another " Big Sister " function, a week at Hampton, and a class affair, anonymous to date. So you see the reputation of the Sopho- more Class has been well earned! OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Dorothy Gately Bernice O ' Connell Regina McKenna Florence Holton [39] Freshman Glass They ' re not our " little sisters " but we can afford a round of applause for their coolness during initiation week despite the dog bones, the turnips, the knee rou- tine, — and bow wow. Falling into the col- lege routine was speeded by the A.A. ' s reception party out on the Knoll. " The rains came " causing the affair to end in a general rout to the cafeteria. The Juniors had things rolling along for their little sisters when they gave a roller- skating party at the Rex Recreation Center. Ethel McTaggett proved herself the nightly Sonja Henie, winning first prize on skates. One good turn deserves another — party —same place — same people — the freshmen as hostesses provided their big sisters with food and fun — comedy acts and dancing. With such a capacity for enjoying life, it augurs well for a full four years of scholar- ship and comradeship. OF FICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Barbara Bennett Gertrude Bailey Kathleen Geary Lola Lombus [4o] Underclassmen ORGANIZATIONS Our College, we like to think, possesses a personality, a warm enveloping one. Perhaps it is because it functions so well, expresses us, our likes, our interests. It is after all, a friendly human place. On the hockey field, at the dis- cussion table, band rehearsals, or just a plain " gab session, " we have drunk full of the warm- ing brew of comradeship and feel we have grown a little in the " art of living. " School and Society League The School and Society League is our plan of student participation in the college g overnment. The executive council is com- posed of the officers elected from the school at large and representatives from each class, the A. A., and the music department. The League activities give every student opportunity to develop self control, self reliance, and leadership. The Bond and Stamp Rally was success- fully continued and a Bond Booth was constructed. With ninety percent coopera- tion we secured our goal of three jeeps and the Minuteman flag was realized. The spirit fostered by this efficient energetic organization prepares students both as citizens and as teachers in the American way of life. OFFICERS President .... Janet Wholey Vice-President . . . Marie Finnegan Secretary .... Mary Madden Treasurer Lucy Valente [44] Athletic Association The A. A. is one of the most valuable organizations at L.T.C. because its in- fluence touches every student; member- ship in its ranks is automatic on becoming a Lowellite. Planning the year ' s affairs of the organ- ization is the work of the executive board elected by the student body. The A.A. ' s calendar needs a " 41 day " month to in- clude the Freshman Welcome party, Army-Navy games, Alumnae games, the annual banquet, and a year ' s program of varied sports. Basketball, field hockey, swimming, tenniquoit, archery, volleyball, badmin- ton present fields of interest for all. Much enthusiasm has been inspired by the purchase of a trophy to be awarded to the Army or Navy team that achieves the title of champion for the year. The association promotes good sports- manship and friendly competition and is aided by the untiring efforts of Miss Neil- son, advisor. OFFICERS President .... Margaret Morgan Vice-President .... Jean Frazier Secretary Marie Barrett Treasurer Violet Kfoury [45] Outing Club OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer . Marie Barrett June Barnard Nancy Hirl Patricia Sullivan The sharp tang of the autumn breezes whips rosy color into the cheeks of a warmly clad group of college girls, as arm in arm they scuff their way through the multi-colored leaves of a riding trail or sit grouped around an open fire toasting frankfurts. The harvest moon shines through the bare branches of the trees on a country road on a hay-wagon filled with the voices of happy girls harmonizing in rhythm to the clop-clop of horses ' hoofs. Bad weather is no daunt to activities when they can frolic their way through a series of square dances, roller skating, and combination dinner and theatre parties,— all under the leadership of Miss Elizabeth A. Neilson. [46] Sketching Club The sketching club is made up of girls possessing a natural artistic ability and a genuine love of art. The members have taken advantage of the opportunity to meet at the Whistler House with the Lowell Art Association. Here the girls may watch such experts as Mr. Wollcott and Mr. Hiscoe — they may also try their own hand at sketching the models. The media used are oils, tempera, charcoal, pencil, water color, and pastel. The pleasant associations and informal atmosphere are conducive to only the best results. Each member is encouraged to go on with her sketching outside of club time and to dis- play her talent in an art exhibition at the end of the year. Business meetings are held at the college once a month with Mr. Hiscoe, club advisor. [47] fit ■k. jPHfc ' j Mm ' » ' ■ x i JL JL- i ' I fflfciiitt i m • Of 1 1 A Wk. ' -- i a - JUt J i 1 SHE 1 ' " ■ t Glee Club " H.M.S. Pinafore " sailed the waves again — when the Glee Club contemplated producing the Gilbert and Sullivan op- eretta this fall. Records of the original Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Co. were heard. Solo parts and ensemble groups underwent analysis. Members of the group managed to give fleeting characterization to Sir Joseph Porter, Buttercup and Josephine. Abandoning this score, the members enthusiastically began, " The Eastertide, " an Easter pageant which depicts the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ; presented March 29, 1945. Miss Pierce has enabled the girls to interpret the significant spirit of the Lenten season. The Art classes under the auspices of Miss Josephine Chute arranged the tableaux. The group consisted of a three-part a cappella chorus. Descriptive readings were taken from the Bible. OFFICERS President Jessie Salsman Secretary Jean Haskell Treasurer .... Katherine Moran [48] MUSIC NOTES College Choir OFFICERS President Secretary- Treasurer Ruth Berube Dolores Allard As Seniors, we have a very deep love for our Choir. Under the inspirational guid- ance of Miss Grace Pierce, we have gained the essence of living. Our choir has played a very prominent part in our college life and from our many happy per- formances, we will always have pleasant memories. During the year, we have sung for many organizations; morning assem- blies, Monday recitals, Lowell Alumnae Chapter, " In and About Club, " Fort Devens, Lowell General Hospital, Super- intendent Conferences, P.T.A. Meetings, and Lenten Services. We would like to express our utmost appreciation to Frances Montague, our able accompanist. [50] College Band This band, under the direction of Augus- tus Mazzocca, meets once a week and all music students of the College receive in- struction on the various musical instru- ments. It is one of the most beneficial tools in the equipment of the professional Music Supervisor. At the end of the Senior year, every music student has an adequate knowledge of all the instruments and is able to play them with average facility. The individual classes are placed in the hands of certain music students who are particularly deft on an instrument and they instruct for several weeks until their class is able to join the big band and play in ensemble. Every semester, we exchange instruments so there is the possibility for learning all of them. The band plays for our Christmas Assembly Program and Graduation Exercises. OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Beverly Solomon Louise Levingston Mildred Winfield Winifred Fountain [5i] Swing Shift A peppy group of musicians in College formed a band at the beginning of the year to play for such activities as — Bond Rallies, and Army and Navy games. This small band included members of both the Elementary and Music courses. Our rehearsals were rushed and at odd spare minutes during the week, therefore, we incorporated our unique title " Swing- Shift " band. We were invited to play for one of the regular morning assemblies at which we hopefully displayed our talent or at least — enthusiasm. Credit is due Elsbeth Ohlson, being the originator of the group and a most able conductor. [52] College Show " Holiday with Music " , our college show of May, 1944, given in the auditorium, undertook to give all aspiring L.T.C. per- formers a chance to display their particular talents in colorful settings. This per- formance besides having versatile singers, dancers, actors, instrumentalists, and nov- elty numbers, boasted a complete minstrel show, its own " Lillian Russell, " and the Bloomer Gals! To Sylvia Cohen goes credit for the title of the production, and what would we have done without our duo-accompanists Jean Haskell and Winifred Fountain? Behind scenes the smell of grease paint was real. Confusion — lights, " You ' re on, " " hurry, " " smile, " had resounding echoes in the applause of an appreciative au- dience. Such cooperation, enthusiasm, re- sourcefulness, and esprit de corps made this theatrical venture a long remembered occasion. [53] Practice School Practice school — the realization of our preparation for the teaching profession; there was suspense in those few minutes before we stood up to teach our first lesson, but the eager young faces before us gave us the confidence to do our best. As our training period progressed we found ourselves ever turning the pages of " the units " to guide us in making lesson plans and weekly bloc plans. We were ever being reminded of our own little idiosyn- crasies in the daily criticism periods that helped us to grow in poise and self confi- dence. At the demonstration lessons given on Friday mornings we were given many in- spiring examples of teaching by our critic teachers. They offered us their experience and to them and Miss Emma Ramsay, supervisor of our training department, we owe our success as teachers. They will live in our future and practice school will be remembered as one of the most gratifying and certainly the busiest period of our college life. Another phase of teacher training is found in our music department which begins the actual teaching process in the junior year. At this point in our experi- ence, periods of observation in teaching methods, procedures, and techniques, gave us an introduction to rote, observa- tion and reading songs with additional rhythmic and creative work. The long road to becoming A-i music supervisors loomed far ahead. Through the efforts of Miss Grace G. Pierce, head of the music department at Lowell Teachers College, the theory of music methods, teacher personality, and a broad outlook in the musical field, helped us gain stature in our professional growth. In actual practice Miss Mary Wallace rounded off the rough edges of inexperi- ence with constructive criticisms of lessons taught in our Lowell training schools. Our senior year saw us distributing our teaching time in five varied directions: college duty, primary grades, elementary grades, junior high school, and high school. All offer excellent opportunities to test the metal of one ' s teaching ability. In the final days of our college career the grave importance of these acquired knowl- edges and skills take deeper root in our professional consciousness. [54] EPILOGUE We who are about to take our place in the professional world are faced with the responsibility of creating a world of young men and young women who have as a prime thought that of peace. Their young minds have been filled with nothing but war and hatred. The democratic spirit which we have seen manifested through- out our college years should be the fund from which we can draw to plant in children ' s hearts the fertile seeds of democracy. Eleanor M.
